DMUSD, Teachers Association reach budget agreement BY KAREN BILLING An agreement has been reached between the Del Mar Union School District and the Del Mar California Teachers Association (DMCTA), resulting in $1 million in budget solutions. The budget solutions teachers agreed to were increasing class sizes from 20:1 to 22:1 in grades kindergarten through third; a corresponding reduction in Extended Studies Curriculum; no more oversize class stipends; no more upper grade compensatory days; and reduced out-of-contract pay for shared contracts. The one-year memoran-

dum of understanding (MOU) was passed by the teachers last week and the board voted 5-0 to accept the MOU at its April 25 meeting. President Doug Rafner said he was shocked because he’d heard so much about the preference for the proposed furloughs as a budget solution over class size increases in discussions prior to the April 25 meeting, but was happy that both sides were able to come to a resolution, which he said is no easy feat.

Gun-control petition sparks debate in SB BY JOE TASH The discussion of gun control at Solana Beach City Hall on Wednesday, April 24, revealed sharp divisions among the speakers, with one man suggesting that a proposed new gun regulation “smacks of Mussolini’s Italy.” But after the meeting, as both sides in the debate talked quietly on

the sidewalk outside council chambers, the mood became friendlier. The pastor of a local church, whose congregation wants the City Council to take action to curb gun violence, agreed to have lunch with the owner of a Solana Beach gun shop. “The conversation has to happen,” said the Rev. David Miller of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship

of San Dieguito. “I’m happy to talk to these guys, they’re not bad people, they’re my neighbors.” Gregg Stockwell, owner of Direct Action Solutions, a gun shop on Genevieve Street, agreed that he also wants to open up a dialogue. “We share common ground. We See GUN, Page 6

Proposed mixed-use development raises concerns in CV BY KAREN BILLING Residents expressed concerns about how a proposed new mixeduse development on Carmel Mountain Road and Carmel Country Road will blend with their community at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting on April 25.

Lawsuit filed against City of Solana Beach over seawall, stairway regulations BY JOE TASH A group representing coastal property owners has filed a lawsuit against the City of Solana Beach, alleging that land-use rules adopted by the City Council in February violate both state law and the U.S. Constitution. The lawsuit was filed in San Diego Superior Court on Friday, April 26, by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of the Beach & Bluff Conservancy, a nonprofit group that represents coastal landowners in Solana Beach, according to a statement released by the foundation. At issue are rules adopted by the council that affect bluff-top development in the city, which could limit the ability of coastal homeowners to build and maintain seawalls and private stairways. The rules also concern how far back from the edge of the bluff any new structures must be placed. “Our lawsuit says to Solana Beach, ‘Tear down your unlawful anti-seawall policies, and stop eroding the property rights of coastal landowners,’” said foundation principal attorney Paul J. Beard II, in the written statement. In an email, Solana Beach City Manager David Ott declined to comment on the law-

suit, except to say “The City will not be providing any comments in regards to the Pacific Legal Foundation lawsuit other than it is under legal review.” In February, the City Council voted 4-1, with Councilman Tom Campbell in opposition, to move forward with a draft coastal land use plan that will be submitted for consideration by the California Coastal Commission. Once Solana Beach has an approved coastal plan in place, the city would have more autonomy to approve development projects within its borders. The debate pits property owners who want to protect their homes from coastal bluff erosion against those who are concerned about public beach access and environmental preservation. The process of seeking approval for the city’s local coastal plan has proved contentious; it’s now gone on for 13 years, with the city submitting seven different versions of the plan for consideration. The Beach & Bluff Conservancy filed a lawsuit against the Coastal Commission in March 2012 after the panel rejected a previous version of the local coastal plan submitted by Solana Beach.

Business seat open on Carmel Valley planning board BY KAREN BILLING There is an open business seat on the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board as representative Jill McCarty termed out of her seat after eight “packed” years on the board. “It’s really been a pleasure to be on this board and be able to be part of the decision making,” McCarty said at her last board meeting on April 25. The business owner must be one who owns, operates or serves as the designee of a local business with a valid business license operating at a non-residential real property address (including property zoned agricultural, but excluding post office boxes) in the community planning area of Carmel Valley or Pacific Highlands Ranch.

CV planning board to send city a letter on marijuana issue BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board said it wanted to be on record as opposing marijuana dispensaries in its community and voted April 25 to send a letter to the city regarding the city’s proposed medical marijuana ordinance. “The letter will not take a position on the merits of medical marijuana and focus on land-use issues and protecting our neighborhoods from issues associated with those facilities,” said board member Manjeet Ranu. The board’s letter comes on the heels of the April 22 San Diego City Council meeting in which the council kicked back Mayor Bob Filner’s ordinance that would have allowed dispensaries in more areas of the city, including Flower Hill Promenade, Del Mar Heights Village on Mango Drive, the Torrey Hills Shopping Center and the future Pacific Highlands Ranch Village Center. Council directed city staff to draft a new ordinance, going back to the language similar to the city’s 2011’s ordinance. Sending back the mayor’s proposed ordinance took many of the proposed community commercial zones off the list. The closest possi-

ble location to Carmel Valley would be in Sorrento Valley off Roselle Street. Mel Millstein, a representative for Councilmember Sherri Lightner, said he does not see the issue coming back before council for another six to nine months. Several community members spoke out against the ordinance at the meeting and stressed that they did not think “pot shop” storefronts belonged in their community. Resident Tom Heatherington said concern is that people with marijuana recommendations can get them filled and return one hour to the same shop and get it filled again with the purpose of having enough to sell. He said that marijuana will just end up out in the community being sold to local youth — he noted he’s found an empty vial from one of the San Diego “pot shops” in Carmel Del Mar Park. Judi Strang, of the San Dieguito Alliance for Drug Free Youth, said her organization has been tracking the issue since the first shop opened in 2005. They seek to prevent marijuana from becoming “commercialized” and for it to be sold as a retail item in a retail setting. “Retail settings say to our young people that it’s permissible,” Strang said.

Del Mar Heights Shell Station to add car wash BY KAREN BILLING The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board heard plans for a self-service car wash to be added to the remodel of the Shell Station at Del Mar Heights Road and Interstate-5. Owner Steve Thomas plans to change the configuration of his 1,800- square-foot building, taking out the three service bays and adding 720 square feet for a convenience store and the 900 square feet self-service car wash to the back. He said business has changed and he doesn’t do as much repair work in the bays as he used to and he thinks that the convenience store and car wash will be an improvement and a benefit to the community. Board members commented that the added benefits might draw more locals there as they tend not to go there to fill up as the prices are high. “You must be the most expensive gas station in San Diego,” board member Manjeet Ranu said “Close,” said a good-natured Thomas. As of press time, the station was tied for the fourth most expensive in the city at $4.49 a gallon.

SB ‘Teacher of the Year’ spearheaded district’s first transitional kindergarten class Carmel Creek and Solana Highlands. Her class has hosted visitors from the Fallbrook and Encinitas school districts looking to observe the new class in action. Jara found out she was the district’s “Teacher of the Year” at an afternoon assembly, suspiciously spotting her husband and 4-year-old daughter Lena in the audience (her oldest Zoe, is in kindergarten at Solana Vista). “I started piecing it together after I saw him and the superintendent and the assistant superintendent and the principal,” Jara said. “It was humbling for sure, it’s hard to be able to take it when you work with people who are work just as hard and are just as good as you, even better. I try to enjoy it but at the same time recognize that everybody is working hard. This is a wonderful staff.” Jara has been a teacher for 16 years and this is her eighth year at Solana Vista. She previously taught second and first grade before taking on the challenge of transitional kindergarten. Jara’s father was in the military, which meant a lot of moving around as a kid—by the time she graduated high school she was in her 13th school. Even with all that experience at those multiple schools, she wasn’t yet set on becoming a teacher. Jara started working as a

substitute teacher but still thought of teaching as just a stop on her journey toward becoming an attorney or attaching a “Dr.” before her name. “I met two teachers who changed it all for me,” Jara said. “They taught from inspiration, not so much from a textbook or a curriculum guide. I saw a freedom, that you can really teach from

where your passions are.” Transitional kindergarten has become an ideal landing spot for Jara as it allows her the freedom to build what she wants the program to be. Within an hour of the notice being posted that the district was looking to hire from within for the TK teacher position, Jara had her application letter written up. In Jara’s TK, students learn to read and they are writing every day. They do math, health and wellness exercises, and a lot of storytelling. “My passion is fairy tales and art,” said Jara who added that she makes school “juicy” for the kids with elements of the Common Core State Standards (there are none yet for TK), as well as borrowing teaching tools from Waldorf, Montessori and Reggio Emilia teaching approaches. As a nod to the Waldorf style of teaching, her students do embroidery, sewing and Jara tries to bring in a lot of elements of nature — there are fresh flowers on every table and tree stumps serve as chairs. One stump in the corner serves as a “Peace Table,” something Jara has always had in her classrooms for conflict resolution. Whenever students have an issue they go to the table where a prompt reads “I did not like it when...” The student must be holding a marble heart stone in order to speak, and

they go back and forth talking until they’ve said everything they need to say. “When they leave they have to end with a handshake or a hug and say ‘Friends’ or ‘Peace’ and life goes on. They do such a wonderful job there, all without the aid of the teacher,” Jara said. In Jara’s classroom there are cheerful flowers dangling from the ceiling, a puppet theater, roomy dollhouse and Indian elephant artwork, and just one piece of the class’s Global World Carnival in which they did art projects from Australia, Africa, Mexico and Ecuador. Hands-on learning is a must in her classroom. She said children love getting a bunch of raw materials and creating something out of nothing. When her students were reading “The Three Little Pigs,” Jara brought in bundles of sticks so the kids could build their own house. “It’s so much fun, they have such a wonderful time acting out stories,” Jara said. The way Jara is in the classroom is a reflection of her personal life. Her family are “urban farmers” in Carlsbad and raise their own veggies and have three chickens, steadily producing eggs. Jara said it’s important to show her girls how much they can do on their own — in addition to the farming work, when they want new

clothes they typically head to the fabric store and sew their own. “I think that’s how you make memories too,” Jara said. She very much enjoys working in Solana Beach and is grateful that the district got on board with TK and has allowed her to be a trailblazer. “This is such a supportive, nurturing, loving community of teachers and families that really make you feel like there’s nothing you can’t do,” said Jara. “It gives you the perception that the sky’s the limit.”

BY KAREN BILLING Solana Vista School’s Shawntanet Jara has been named the Solana Beach School District “Teacher of the Year” after successfully launching the district’s first transitional kindergarten class this year. This is the first year transitional kindergarten has been implemented in California in an effort to reach those children whose birthdays are in the fall, instead of starting kindergarten too early and risking falling behind. Per the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010, for the 2012-13 school year, students must be 5 on Nov. 1. The date moves to Oct. 1 for 2013-14 and Sept. 1 for the 2014-15 school year. All of Jara’s students will turn 5 in October or November. Parents with students on the cusp of the deadlines have tough decisions to make, whether to wait or start their children in kindergarten and many are unsure what to do, Jara said TK offers them an answer. “It’s not preschool but it’s not kindergarten,” Jara said. “It’s a lovely opportunity. It’s truly the gift of time to the youngest of children, to really get them ready.” The Solana Beach district is the only in the area to offer it and Jara’s class includes students whose home schools are

CONCERNS continued from page 1 area with the understanding that the lot would be developed as a straight commercial retail project. Laura Copic, who represents the neighborhood most impacted in Carmel Valley (Neighborhood 10), said she likes the smart design of Merge more than what was originally proposed but has her reservations with the look. “My concern is that the architecture is quite different from what surrounds it,” Copic said. Residents in attendance said the “ultra-modern” design would play better downtown and that its sharp edges and flat roofs make it unsightly. “This thing is like early American airport,” said one resident. Planning board member Debbie Lokanc disagreed and said in her experience as a Realtor she’s seen more buyers drawn to the “clean lines” and “zen-like” architecture shown in Merge. The developers are seeking an amendment to the existing permit ap-

proved in 2007 for 20,000 square feet of commercial retail in five buildings with surface parking lot. Instead of the box store buildings, Merge aims to be a “true mixed use” center using the 4-acre lot for 10 townhomes with detached garages and private yards, and 21 residential for sale flats over 35,000 square feet of retail and commercial space. The plans also include underground parking and a central green space for both residents and office and retail tenants. The project is required to have 216 parking spaces and Merge will provide 241 in both underground parking and a surface lot. The original plan included 186, all surface parking. After hearing comments from the board’s regional issues subcommittee in February that the townhomes facing Drycliff looked like “barracks,” the developers softened their look by breaking up the units, adding stone and wood elements and borrowing color from neighboring homes. Each townhouse will have private porches and a 12-foot planting area before

the sidewalk. In addition to opposing the project’s aesthetics, residents said that the project is too dense for the area and will cause traffic issues. Two of the access points Merge is proposing to use — Drycliff Trail and Corum Court — residents say are more like driveways and are the only ways out of the neighborhood. The increased traffic will make it more difficult to get out onto Carmel Mountain or Carmel Country roads — already there are backups in the mornings, residents said. Board member Manjeet Ranu said that he appreciated the effort made to frame surrounding streets and provide street-fac-


continued from page 1 said he was a little disappointed in the outcome but he had pride that smart, thoughtful people were able to sit around a table and come to some agreement about what they feel is best for the district. “It isn’t a perfect solution, but it is what happens when you’re negotiating between two sides. Is it exactly what both sides wanted? I think both would say ‘no.’ It’s kind of a messy process and you come up with the best solution possible,” said Tim Asfazadour, assistant superintendent of human resources. “It’s a tough process but we aren’t like Ramona whose teachers are looking at going on strike…It’s not the best solution but we didn’t get to an impasse because we continued to negotiate in good faith.” The MOU is the result of two years worth of negotiations. “It has been a very purposeful deliberation process and no decision was taken lightly. There was a lot of back and forth at the bargaining table,” said District Superintendent Holly McClurg. McClurg said all parties worked together as the district faced a very different reality of needing to find at least $2 million in budget

GUN continued from page 1 want to make society safer,” said Stockwell. The accord between the two groups represented by Miller and Stockwell may turn out to be the most significant development of Wednesday’s gun-control debate, as the City Council declined to take immediate action on a list of five requests presented by the church in a petition signed by 83 people. The petition asked the City Council to: join the group “Mayors Against Illegal Guns”; revise the Solana Beach general plan to restrict sales of firearms to a single business; hold a gun buyback program with other cities and the county; support the 22nd Agricultural District’s responsible policies and extensive policing at gun shows; and work with the 22nd DAA to eliminate future gun shows. Church members said they were motivated to circulate the petition by December’s shooting deaths of 20 children and six adults

ing elements on Drycliff, Carmel Mountain and Carmel Country but they left out Corum Court. He said he would like to see Corum Court incorporated more into the plans as well as better activating their green area as parts of it are nowhere near the retail area and won’t draw pedestrians into it. “It’s not as walkable as you think it is just yet,” Ranu said. Merge was only an informational item on the agenda on April 25 but will return to the planning board as it continues through the city review process.

cuts to avoid deficit spending and keep a healthy reserve, wanting to come as close to $2.5 million as possible. In March, the district approved $1,596,130 in cuts and the DMCTA agreement includes the second part of those budget solutions, a savings of approximately $1,011,000. Some parents in attendance expressed frustration that the DMCTA did not accept five furlough days as an option, a savings of $682,500. Due to those furloughs not being accepted for certificated teachers, the district will not be able to do furloughs for classified and management staff and will have to find another place to trim the approved savings of $202,000. Parents also did not like that class sizes would increase. “The MOU to me is a disappointment,” said parent Suzanne Hall. “Not only does it effectively roll back cuts that the district has already committed to but it also removes teachers from the teaching pool that we’ve already invested time and money in.” Hall said it strikes at the youngest students first with increased class sizes when she said they are the age level that benefits most by keeping classes small “I feel very strongly that this is the wrong first cut for our district,” Hall said, noting she preferred the fur-

lough day alternative. Parent Jen Charat said when the process began, the district stressed that its goals were to keep cuts away from the classroom, keep them temporary and to spread the impact across the district. “I’m worried that the MOU contradicts all those stated goals,” Charat said. “It sends the wrong message, especially when the community has said it preferred furloughs to class size increases.” Charat said the community is still trying to regain faith in the district after a “rocky” last few years. “Balancing the budget on the backs of kindergartners is a step back,” Charat said. “I fear it will change the fabric of our district…I fear it is not necessary.” Trustee Kristin Gibson said she appreciated the parents being in attendance and sharing their views. She noted that at the town hall meeting, 45 percent stated that class size increases were not the preferred cut. “The MOU is not completely aligned with what the community told us but it is part of a process and the first step in a direction we need to go. If the bond had passed we wouldn’t be in this situation,” Gibson said, lamenting that the difference in Prop CC passing was just 130 votes. McClurg said furlough days were thoroughly dis-

cussed, as were all options. She said that even with 22:1, the district remains at the low end of class sizes in the area. McClurg said there are many variables associated with students’ success and she believes they can still provide high quality education even in classes of 22 students or more; some in the district are already at that level. “If I didn’t think we could continue to provide top quality education with this decision, I would be making that statement to you,” McClurg told the board. “I don’t think there will be an impact.” The MOU also includes no change in salary schedule with the exception of full funding for step and column increases for eligible teachers; no increase in benefits; and modifications to contract language relative to the sitebased decision making and grievance articles. The MOU’s agreement for an ESC reduction will result in one full-time equivalency position loss that the district provides. As of last week, the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation had raised a little over $1 million with a May 7 extended deadline left in its campaign (with a $2 million fundraising goal). At that level of fundraising, it would mean the loss of four ESC full-time equivalency positions from the current year level.

at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Lynne Talley, a church member, told the council that the failure of federal officials to act (last week, a majority of U.S. Senators voted to expand background checks for gun buyers, but the bill died due to a Republican filibuster) puts the responsibility on local officials. Joining the Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns “may feel like a symbolic act, but it speaks a lot to your intentions,” said Talley. “The local level is the place where action really begins.” Council members seemed willing to join the group, but requested more information before making a final decision. Some 900 mayors from cities around the country have joined the group, including Mayor Teresa Arballo Barth of Encinitas, Mayor Bob Filner of San Diego and Mayor Cheryl Cox of Chula Vista. While none of the council members supported restricting the number of gun shops that can operate in the city, some on the panel suggested the city may review the locations

where gun shops are allowed during an upcoming overhaul of the Solana Beach general plan. According to testimony during Wednesday’s meeting, the city currently has three licensed firearms retailers, including Direct Action Solutions. Council members also said a gun buyback program could be a good idea, but that Solana Beach doesn’t have the money for such a program, and the city would have to partner with the county or other agencies. Council members also opposed lobbying the 22nd DAA, which runs the Del Mar Fairgrounds, to stop holding gun shows at the facility. “I think they do a fantastic job,” said Councilman Tom Campbell regarding the operators of the popular gun shows, which are held several times a year. Mayor Mike Nichols said he didn’t want church members to feel like their effort went for naught, even though the council did not act on their proposals. “I feel like you have ac-

complished something by just raising the issue and allowing us to have a conversation,” Nichols said. Most of the 13 speakers opposed the church’s petition, and the idea of limiting the number of gun shops in the city took the most heat. “I can’t imagine this council limiting (Solana Beach) to one lawyer, one doctor or one restaurant,” said Brian Brady. “Frankly, it’s scary to me to think when church, business and government get together to create a state-sanctioned monopoly on some sort of a thing, it kind of smacks of Mussolini’s Italy,” Brady said. John Hermsen said he appreciated what the church was trying to do, but, “Unfortunately it’s ignorant and misguided. It’s not the American way to limit businesses.” “I have so much respect for this church for wanting to make a difference. I don’t think this petition is the way to do it,” said Jonathan Mighdoll.

Education Matters/Opinion Solana Beach parents protest full-day kindergarten BY MARSHA SUTTON At first I thought I had taken a wrong turn and landed by mistake at a Del Mar school Marsha Sutton b o a r d meeting, given the crowd of people outside the door. It was an overflow crowd at the usually quiet Solana Beach School District’s board meeting on April 25, with more than 100 people trying to squeeze into the boardroom. Parents came to protest the district’s proposed shift to full-day kindergarten this fall for the Global Education program based at Skyline School in Solana Beach. Global Education, created about 30 years ago, is a unique educational program for students in grades kindergarten through sixth that incorporates individualized instruction with a themebased, multi-age approach. Skyline principal Lisa Denham called it an alternative program based on the needs of the whole child. She said the program adheres to state standards, but subjects like reading and math are typically smallgroup, individualized instruction rather than wholegroup instruction. Classes don’t conform to traditional grade levels. Denham said a combination grades 1 and 2 class at other schools might be a grouping of 6-, 7- and 8-year-olds in Global Ed. Students are grouped by ability, development and

age, and teachers work with students “where they’re at,” she said. Most unique is how social studies is taught in Global Ed. For grades 4-6, students are required by the state to learn California history, American history and ancient civilization. In Global Ed, Denham said the entire student body, grades K-6, will study one of the three themes each year and do activities all together at the end of each unit. Themes rotate year to year, and at the end of three years the cycle starts over. Skyline houses the K-6 Global Education program and a traditional grades 4-6 education. The Global Ed program enrolls about 185 students, with only 27 spots open in kindergarten each year. Very few students leave the program, and younger siblings are guaranteed enrollment, Denham said, so there is always a long waitlist to get in. Denham said the program is different than most others, has deep roots in the community, utilizes excellent teachers, and heavily involves parents. It’s that parent component that has many upset. Global Ed parent Sara Appleton-Knapp said parents were “blind-sided” by a letter sent in March from SBSD superintendent Nancy Lynch to incoming kindergarten parents, saying that this fall Global Ed kindergarten would shift from a modified day, ending at 1:15 p.m., to a full day ending at 3 p.m. “There wasn’t parent

input,” Appleton-Knapp said. “In a program where the parents are so involved, to not ask the parents what they think about it, it doesn’t seem like they’re doing their due diligence.” When Appleton-Knapp heard about the letter, she contacted other Global Ed parents and it snowballed, resulting in over 100 people packing the April 25 school board meeting. Under Public Comment, 14 speakers asked the board for data on the decision, reasons why parents weren’t consulted, whether teachers were on board with the change, and how 5-yearolds will cope with a longer day. Speakers were not just parents of incoming kindergartners. They were parents of older children in the program, parents with children now in high school and college who participated in the program, and even grandparents who praised the program for their children who now have children of their own. Chris Antonelli, who has three children in middle and high school, said, “Global Ed gave them a love of learning. I think you have it backwards. Instead of making Global Ed look like everything else, you should make other schools more like Global Ed.” Solana Beach City Council member David Zito, whose three children participated in Global Ed, opposed the decision, as did Scott Billington who said taking zero input from parents represents “a communication

breakdown.” Bobbie Hilton, a former teacher of Global Ed., said young children need time for play. “Global Ed gives kids time to come into their own academically,” she said. “If parents want full-day kindergarten, other Solana Beach schools are providing that.” Sixth-grader Siena Fischel said, “I feel sad you are changing it. I really liked how we got out early.” Appleton-Knapp requested a data analysis to explain why the shift was being made. She asked if the district was “solving a problem that doesn’t exist.” Teachers did site visits Several speakers said the teachers should have been consulted, but Lynch and Denham said teachers were involved and aware. “We had three meetings with the teachers,” Lynch said. She said she shared with the teachers extensive research indicating that fullday kindergarten provides better academic preparation for young students. After doing their own research and visiting other schools that offer full-day kindergarten, the teachers “found from research that it’s good for all kids [and] came up with a beautiful plan of what they were going to do in the afternoon,” Lynch said. “They had total control over what that program would look like.” Appleton-Knapp disagreed that research unanimously supports the benefits of full-day kindergarten.

“A lot of the models about the advantages of fullday kindergarten don’t necessarily apply to Global Ed because of the nature of the program,” she said. Appleton-Knapp, a cognitive psychologist who has one child in the Global Ed program and one who completed it and is now in middle school, said the program pulls educational principles from varied sources, including learning theories of Piaget and Montessori, and involves cross-age teaching and experiential learning. She said the modified day for kindergartners is integral to the integrity of the


entire program. “What has made the decision for modified day at Global Ed is based on the same principles that everything else is based on,” she said. One of the goals behind Global Education, AppletonKnapp said, is to get kids to love learning. But she said that’s unlikely to happen if their early experience is negative and “they burn out” after six hours at school. She emphasized that the Global kindergarten program is a modified day, not a half day. “Half-day was not long enough and full day was too long, so we’re in between.”

Carmel Valley student named semifinalist in U.S. Presidential Scholars Program Carmel Valley resident Kailyn Miller, a graduating senior at La Jolla Country Day School, was recently named one of about 550 semifinalists in the 2013 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. The semifinalists were selected from more than 3,900 candidates on the basis of superior achievements, leadership qualities, personal character, and involvement in community and school activities. Final selection of the scholars will be made by the Commission on Presidential Scholars, a group of eminent citizens appointed by the President, and will be announced in May. The Commission will select one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U.S. students living abroad; up to 20 students representing the visual, literary and performing arts; and 15 Kailyn Miller students at-large. Scholars will be invited to Washington D.C., in June to receive the U.S. Presidential Scholars medallion at a recognition ceremony and to participate in various activities and events held in their honor. Semi-finalists were chosen by a panel of distinguished educators after a review of students’ essays, self-assessments, descriptions of activities, school recommendations and school transcripts.

TPHS graduate one of top 25 vying for coveted job in Tourism Australia contest BY ROB LEDONNE 2002 Torrey Pines High School grad Sarah Cross was perusing her iPhone when she came across word of a contest. “Something about it spoke to me,” she says of the contest sponsored by Tourism Australia that promises a $100,000 salary and six-month gig working with animals in the country for a lucky few finalists. “If I won, I’d be in South Australia working on Kangaroo Island, working with a variety of animals and sharing my experiences through blogs and social media,” Cross said. The purpose of the contest is to promote working holidays and Australian culture, as well as bring awareness to the country’s native animals, something Cross has a passion for. Cross was actually born in Australia (but hasn’t been there for over a decade), then moved to Texas while spending her summers in San Diego. While here, she developed a love of horses, caring for her own at a young age. “I had been riding horses since I was 6 years old,” she

remembers. “Even though I was so young, I understood and embraced all of the hard work that came with it, and that made me want to do more.” With a love of animals, she then logged multiple summers as a volunteer at the Helen Woodward Animal Center, the famed animal shelter in Rancho Santa Fe. “It was not glamorous,” she readily admitted. “I would get there early and do things like clean out kennels and exercise the animals, but I loved every minute of it.” Cross began living full time in San Diego during her junior year of high school, and later attended college at San Diego State and then Cal State San Marcos. Soon after school, she landed a job in Las Vegas as a Dolphin Care Specialist at the Mirage Hotel and Casino. When Cross found out about the contest, and the marriage of Australia and animals, she knew she had to submit and spent weeks putting together a submission video of her at her regular job with the dolphins. Said Cross: “I figured it’d be a great way to get attention.” Cross was one of 45,000 people who submitted a video, so she waited and hoped for the best. “Before announcing the Explore our wide range finalists, they emailed me of services at saying they liked my video,” Cross said, figuring it was a 858.663.4205 good sign. “When they posted the top 25 contestants for my position, I started scroll‘like’ us on Facebook ing through all of them and We prepare the property, and stay updated on saw my video, which was near the bottom of the page. future estate sale events!

Sarah Cross with Cosmo COURTESY PHOTO ted from 196 countries for six jobs, all vying for the experience of a lifetime. Cross’ next step is to spread the word of her campaign to win, by whatever means necessary — including this article. “In stage two, we have to reach out through the community, friends and family, and compile everything. They want us to get high-profile people, which is lucky for me since I live and work in Las Vegas.” In addition, Cross has enlisted the help of some friends to vouch for her, including a friend who works at the San Diego Zoo as a bird trainer. Cross won’t know until May 15 if she’ll make the last round, but is trying to do everything in her power to make her dreams come true. “I have some family there I’ve never met, plus other family I haven’t seen in years,” she explains. “Having been born there and loving animals, this would be amazing.” To follow Cross and her quest, check her out on Facebook:

‘If your mind is still active, you can live a good and rewarding life’: Recently deceased author wrote about being quadriplegic BY ASHLEY MACKIN Local resident June van Lint’s story is one of living a full life despite any limitations – and survival. Having lived a life full of travel and family, van Lint spent 46 years as a quadriplegic before passing away on March 30. Along her journey, she wrote her story with her one usable finger on an electrical typewriter, calling it “My New Life.” You can read it online at www. Living 46 years in the condition van Lint found herself is almost unheard of, according to her husband Victor. (The Guinness World Record is 54 years). However, June survived several serious health complications and traveled the world. In 1966, the van Lints were on vacation in Oregon with their four adopted children when the family was in a car accident. “June got a whiplash injury in her neck with no significant nerve damage, but doctors had to perform a cervical fusion operation to stabilize the vertebrae,” Victor explained. “After the surgery, she was in a coma for six weeks. When June woke up, could only move her head and had minor use of her left hand and could not speak. “Over the years, she overcame several illnesses that typically end the life of a quadriplegic. People with conditions similar to June’s often die when they get their first lung infection; pools of liquid form (in the lungs) and you get pneumonia and you can’t breathe well … 75 percent of causes of death are pneumonia … June had several cases of lung

infections and a number of cases of pneumonia, and she recovered from them all.” In 2001, she discovered she had breast cancer, which she overcame. In 2012, she discovered she had colon cancer, and survived that, too, Victor said with a proud laugh. Spending her time as actively as she could, June traveled around the world to every continent except Antarctica, often by cruise. Writing about her travels and the adventures therein, June’s story further explores the first four years of her life as a quadriplegic. As to how her story ended, Victor said, “You couldn’t have scripted it better.” In November

2012 June developed a case of pneumonia and had to go to the hospital. While there, doctors discovered she had colon cancer, so she had surgery to remove it. After the surgery, she no longer had what was left of her mobility. Thankfully, Victor said right around the time June would have become frustrated, they had planned to take a cruise. The two spent 28 days traveling Hawaii and the South Pacific Ocean. Two weeks after they returned, June suffered a stroke from which she did not recover. “Her life was over. It was time for it to end,” he said. “Maybe I’m supposed to be sad, but I couldn’t have asked for anything better.” Victor said the message of her book is “no matter how physically disabled you are, if your mind is still active, you can live a good and rewarding life.” In making the decision to put the book online for free, van Lint said it was about those for whom the book is dedicated — their friends and nine grandchildren. Victor also compiled a sequel, which is based on letters written between June and her sisters.

Local soccer coach holds circuit training classes for adults Three mornings a week, local youth soccer coach Paul Currie keeps adults on their toes and working hard. He also has them dancing through rope ladders, performing side planks, lifting hand weights, and exercising parts of the body that many adults haven’t for ages. All of this is part of the “circuit training” exercises Currie leads outdoors at the La Colonia Park in Solana Beach every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning, with sessions starting at 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. “Circuit training” is the description given to the process of performing different aerobic exercises in rotation around a circuit of small courses of rope ladders, cone layouts, jumps, slalom poles, hill climbs, and other activities. Curriel lays out eight different exercise courses in roughly a circle and times the activity in each course to run for exactly one minute. After completing one course, each participant moves on to the next course in the circuit. Participants run the courses at their own speed, and with modifications to fit their needs. In between the aerobic circuits, after a short breathing and water break, the participants typically go through five or six one-minute core strengthening exercises such as stomach crunches, side planks, bicep curls, squats, and lunges. All of this is preceded by a warm-up jog and stretches, and followed at the end by

L-R: Pam Panther, Chris Bizzack, and Coach Paul Currie. Photograph by Charles Foster. warm-down stretches. The end result is a thorough workout and a lot of good, healthy breathing, all completed in just under an hour. An avid soccer player and successful youth soccer coach, Currie’s real job is as a professional coach for three or more San Diego Surf soccer teams during afternoons, evenings, and weekends. He conducts the circuit training classes in the morning to help adults become more fit, add a little to his coaching income, and do extra workouts along with his participants so he can continue to compete strongly in his men’s soccer club. (His men’s club recently won the National Over-30 Soccer Championship in Kentucky.) Currie grew up playing soccer in England about 30 miles north of Manchester. Since then, he has played and coached professional soccer in both England and Australia. After coming to the U.S., he coached for several youth clubs in the San Diego area before settling in with the San Diego Surf Soccer Club. His teams have won one National Championship, several State and Regional Championships, and many southern California tournaments. Throughout each circuit training session, Currie provides knowledgeable guidance and gentle encouragement. One of his sayings with regard to youth soccer coaching is “If you coach in the right way and try to develop players, then the wins will come.” For his circuit training adults, he works to help them win at becoming more fit and healthy, with much encouragement and many words of “Well done!” For additional information about circuit training at La Colonia Park, Currie can be reached at 858-342-7857 and

San Diego Jewish Academy students holding used clothing drive to help students in Rwanda the money to buy them the books and supplies.” Civin said the Freedom Writers program encourages her students to have a voice and use their voices to get things done. They came up with Project Rwanda on their own and while they know they have a long way to go, they are confident they will meet their goals. As student Stephanie Weinstein said, they are taking to heart the lesson to “Be the change you want to see in the world.” “The students are learning what they can do to leave an impact,” Civin said. “We’re a little school but our kids have a big heart and a big drive. It’s a strong community. When people are asked to step up, everyone does.” To donate to the Project Rwanda clothing drive, drop off well-tied plastic garbage bags to SDJA at 11860 Carmel Creek Road, San Diego, 92130. Pick-ups may be arranged. For more information, contact Amy Civin at

As part of its Freedom Writers curriculum, SDJA has been communicating with Rwandan teacher Issa Sikubwabo and his students, a teacher Civin met at the Institute. Sikubwabo teaches at a school in the Agahozo Shalom Youth Village, a village for young people orphaned by the Rwandan genocide in 1994. While SDJA was able to purchase the books and curriculum-support materials needed to incorporate Freedom Writers into the classroom, Sikubwabo’s school lacked the necessary funding.

BY KAREN BILLING San Diego Jewish Academy students in Amy Civin’s eighth grade English class are getting an education on how they can change the world. While going through Civin’s curriculum that incorporates the inspirational book “The Freedom Writers Diary” that empowers students to reach their full potential, they decided they want to give that lesson of empowerment to students a world away through a fundraiser called Project Rwanda. The class is seeking donations through the end of May to fill a 45-foot, “ginormous” container on campus with used clothing. The clothing will be given to Good Thrift, which buys the clothing in bulk for $3,000 and distributes it to local San Diego nonprofits in need. That $3,000 will then be turned around to buy books and supplies for their beneficiary school in Rwanda. “This is our way to give back, things are not as easy there,” Civin said. “We believe in this curriculum so much, it’s all about giving kids their voice.” The eighth graders hosted a dance-a-thon last Thursday to kick off their Project Rwanda efforts. DJ Mark Langford donated his time to keep the students dancing all night, as well as brought in his advanced hip hop dance students from Royal Dance Academy as entertainment. Raquel Mussali, an SDJA parent and Zumba instructor, led the students in Zumba routines. Admission was $5 and a bag of clothes to get the drive kicked off — they were able to raise $350 and fill up the container some but they still have plenty of room for community donations. “We’re hoping to spread the word and fill it up,” said Civin. “Everyone benefits from this.” Last summer, Civin was one of 25 teachers across the country selected to participate in the 2012 Freedom Writers Institute in Long Beach, led by teacher Erin Gruwell, whom Civin called a “powerful speaker, inspirational educator and catalyst for social change.” Gruwell took students who were labeled “unteachable” and “below average” and encouraged them to use their voices to become the Freedom Writers, writing about their experiences. The resulting book was ‘The Freedom Writers Diary” and all of those students went on to attend college. Gruwell went on to found the Freedom Writ-

St. James Academy student council’s Shred-A-Thon benefits Warrior Foundation The St. James Academy student council hosted a Shred-A-Thon on April 13 where people could bring their confidential documents as well as “E”waste, such as computers, televisions, cell phones, and have them safely, securely destroyed. The students decided to split the net donations with a worthy cause as a way of giving back to the community. They chose the Warrior Foundation because they believe it is important to honor the country’s military service members who fought abroad so that America remains safe and free. They especially like the fact that every penny that goes to the Warrior Foundation helps those stationed right here in San Diego. The event was such a huge success that the students were able to present a check in the amount of $1,635.90 to the Warrior Foundation. The donations actually came from all over the county and the response was so favorable, they are hoping to make this a yearly event. Maggie Brady, co-chairman of Ways and Means, came up with the idea for the event and played a key role in promoting it.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

One Paseo will help build a sense of community in Carmel Valley It is of my humble opinion and of many of those that live in this area that the One Paseo project is a great example of a project based on the betterment of a community and not solely for profit. If you have never had the experience of a pep rally in one of our country’s many small towns, you’re missing out. While on a business trip, I had this privilege to join a friend and his family as the entire community gathered for the high school football team’s play-off pep rally. It was like a scene from a movie set, with a slice of yesterday playing out before your eyes. Yet it was truly part of the fabric of their life; deep-rooted and not likely to change any time soon. All around me was a sense of community and camaraderie with a huge pep rally, including music and cheerleaders and hundreds of team loyalists with business store fronts painted to show their support, local vendors selling goods and the local coach and business leaders delivering motivating speeches. Growing up in a small town, this quickly brought me back to my own home town where we gathered regularly in the town center to meet friends and talk about the possibilities to come. The “Main Streets” had been a place of community gathering while I was growing up and have been replaced with strip malls and big box stores over the years, depriving us from building the social network we demand and deserve. There are many projects around the city of San Diego that call themselves “Main Street Concepts” but very few of them meet the singular meaning of a spot-on “main street” project. Real “Main Streets” are pedestrian-oriented streetscapes that fit within the fabric of the existing community and include a collection of uses, including retail, service, residential and office. They are meant to become the focal point for the community and, as such, provide common areas, reflect the local culture and remain active throughout the day and night. Because of the diversity, the “Main Street” then becomes a place to work and play, serving the community not only during the day, but during weekends and times of celebration of the community. While reviewing One Paseo in detail you will become optimistic for its potential to influence us to become more intertwined into the fabric of our community and, with it, build a real sense of community. All too often projects are designed to squeeze as much revenue out of a community and not how the development can better the community. We, in the Carmel Valley area, deserve to enjoy the ability to live and work in a community with a variety of resources such as those offered by a well thought-out “Main Street” such as One Paseo. It is for these reasons and more that I believe One Paseo will help build a sense of community right here in Carmel Valley. Joseph Rietman, Carmel Valley

Countywide political merry-go-round BY GORDON CLANTON Countywide, a complex game of political musical chairs is playing out. Congressman Bob Filner was elected mayor of San Diego in November. State Senator Juan Vargas, whom Filner had defeated three times, then won Filner’s congressional seat. Assemblyman Ben Hueso then took Vargas’s senate spot. Labor leader Lorena Gonzalez is among those now seeking Hueso’s assembly seat. Meanwhile, San Diego Councilman Tony Young resigned to become local head of the American Red Cross. Myrtle Cole and Dwayne Crenshaw will meet soon in a special election to determine Young’s successor – and the balance of power on the council. Filner has endorsed Cole. So much for the intention of the term-limits movement to put an end to “career politicians.” BTW: Legislative term limits is still a bad idea, the source of much of the dysfunction in Sacramento. We don’t have a problem with “career doctors,” “career lawyers,” or “career mechanics.” Only in politics do we assume that experience is not the best teacher, that the novice can do it better than the professionals. Although San Diego’s Fourth District includes more Hispanics and more Asians than African Americans, it has long been represented by black men, beginning in 1969 with “Living Legend” Leon Williams — so designated by Mayor Filner at his inauguration. More recent D-4 representatives have been disappointing — parochial, self-interested, inclined to nepotism. Closer to home, Republican Supervisor Bill Horn will seek re-election in 2014. Once again Horn’s campaign will be managed by super-consultant (and former boy mayor of Del Mar) Tom Shepard. Shepard, who mostly has worked for Republicans, recently helped elect Democratic Mayor Filner. Horn, first elected in 1995, is term-limited to one more four-year term. Encinitas Councilwoman Kristen Gaspar will challenge

Republican incumbent Darrell Issa in the 2014 congressional primary. Supervisor Dave Roberts or his staffer Adam Kaye will meet with voters every third Friday, 3-5 p.m., at the Del Mar Community Building, 225 Ninth Street. Outsiders often think of San Diego as a Republican town, but Democrats have outnumbered Republicans in the city of San Diego since the 1990s. For many years, San Diego County had a Republican majority, but now Democrats outnumber Republicans countywide. For many years, Del Mar was the only city in North San Diego County with a Democratic majority, but, although Barack Obama carried Del Mar with 53 percent of the vote, Republicans now outnumber Democrats by 17. Not 17 percent. 17 voters. There goes the neighborhood. Gordon Clanton teaches Sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at

One Paseo is not smart In his April 25 letter, Robert Scott argues that One Paseo meets one of two notable goals of the Carmel Valley Community Plan: the provision of a “centrally located town center… which emphasizes … mixed uses.” He admits that the project does not provide for the second goal, a public transit component, stating that this linkage with surrounding neighborhoods can and should be mandated by the City. Mr. Scott fails to tell us that the original plan was for the town center to supplement the services of smaller neighborhood centers connected by bikeways and pathways and mini buses to the town center. The town center would then provide a transportation hub to connect the whole of the Carmel Valley community to greater San Diego. In 1975 planners had already recognized that suburban development leads to traffic congestion as residents jump into their cars to go to anywhere else. But Carmel Valley was developed without the transportation component and with three-car garages instead. Residents do jump into their cars to go, even to the town center. Residents from the adjacent community of Del Mar Heights do the same. A community is shaped by its circulation system, and Carmel Valley is most definitely automobile-centric, as are the surrounding communities of Del Mar Heights, Solana Beach, and the City of Del Mar. Public transit systems depend on density to thrive; this is suburbia. So much for transportation. But Mr. Scott nevertheless sees One Paseo fulfilling the dream of a village linked to the wider neighborhood. On the contrary, One Paseo would provide another magnet for automobile traffic, far beyond the capacity of roads built to serve the existing town center. It would be a destination shopping mall masquerading as a village. Kilroy Realty, the developer, recognizes this fact and has prepared a solution for the traffic congestion their project would cause. This solution involves dedicating the main arteries of the community to the automobile. Traffic would be constant and heavy; turn lanes would be longer; trees would disappear; traffic lights would take their place. Any possibility that Carmel Valley could one day host a mix of pedestrians, bicycles, and public transit, in addition to cars, will be destroyed. It’s hard enough now for a pedestrian to brave the exhaust fumes near the intersections of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real or the freeway. No. One Paseo belongs in communities such as the ones listed by Mr. Scott: La Jolla, Encinitas, and Little Italy. Those are dense mixed use urban communities with well-developed transit systems. Planners and developers have betrayed Carmel Valley once by ignoring the importance of the transportation element of an enlightened community plan. Let’s not make another mistake and forever destroy what is still a gracious planned community. Diana Scheffler, Architect, AIA Torrey Pines Community

First they came for the billionaires BY MIKE HAYUTIN (GUEST OPINION) First they raised taxes on billionaires, I wasn’t a billionaire so I didn’t care. Then they raised taxes on millionaires, I wasn’t a millionaire so I didn’t care. Then they raised taxes on those making $500,000, I don’t make $500,000 so I didn’t care. Then they raised taxes on those making $250,000, I don’t make $250,00 so I didn’t care. Then they raised taxes on those making $150,000, I don’t make $150,000 but I began to take notice because many of my friends do make $150,000. Then they raised taxes on tobacco, sugar, trans-fats, the Internet, gasoline and medical devices. Now cared but by that point opportunity and wealth had disappeared from the land. It was too late. My little theft of Martin Niemoller’s take on the rise of National Socialism in Germany is meant to be instructive for those who have let envy, resentment and class warfare influence their desire to make those filthy rich pay their “fair share.” Envy, resentment and class warfare can be as damaging to a healthy economy as racism to a culture. The campaign rhetoric on the left was and continues to be most often centered on the mantra of millionaires and billionaires failing to pay enough in taxes. But funny thing, the taxes proposed slide down the income scale with great See BILLIONAIRES, page 19

Fair Board Patchwork BY BUD EMERSON Looks like we are going to squander an excellent opportunity to reshape the Fair Board. Instead of making a truly effective, locally-controlled board, we will be grafting on a patch to an already dysfunctional board. Five County Supervisors will be added to the nine political appointees of the Governor — no representation for Del Mar, Solana Beach or San Diego, despite the fact that the fairgrounds touches and impacts all three jurisdictions. My years of experience working to improve both public and private organizations tells me this entity does not measure up against either standard. The current board has significant structural and operational deficiencies. Measured as a private entity which pays no rent, gets free state facilities, and pays no taxes, its profit margins are mediocre at best. Without the profitable race


track, it would likely not be operating in the black. The politically-appointed board barely meets minimum standards of policy making, operational oversight, and fiduciary responsibility. It is basically a rubber stamp board presiding over an “agricultural” organization with a bad case of mission creep. As a public entity it also fails badly in terms of transparency, accountability to the public, and democratic representation. The board rarely engages in real policy making, makes no real attempt to understand its local and regional constituents, and exercises little or no operational oversight. It is a rogue government untethered to any voter constituency. This patchwork restructuring is being guided by a politically ambitious Republican Board President who claims to be speaking for a Democratic Governor. All under the banner of “local control.” We are told this will be a model for restructuring all 58 of the fair boards around the state. Really? What a shame we cannot make this a model of

velocity, as the beast’s appetite has no limit. The 20 new taxes in the Affordable Care Act will impact average wage earners. The proposed additional tax on tobacco, Polosi suggested value added tax (in addition to not as a replacement for) and trillion dollars of new taxes proposed by the Obama administration’s budget will do like wise. You see we have a dynamic economy. Taxes passed onto medical devise manufacturers; small business owners and yes-even corporations will eventually be passed along to average Joe. Did we not learn our lessons from the results of the imposition of the luxury tax and the alternate minimum tax? The average Joe paid the price for ill-conceived efforts to get the rich to pay their fare share. The problem my dear friends are not that “wealthy,” “greedy” or “corrupt” corporations pay too little. The problem is a beast called big government. It is a voracious beast that will consume resources in the most inefficient ways and in endless amounts. Yes, this beast is necessary but he must be tamed. We are 17 trillion dollars beyond necessary government service funding, on our way to 25 trillion in short order. It is delusion-primed envy that motivates the call to increase taxes on the job creators. Sure there is greed and corruption among the wealthy and those running corporations. But corrupt businesses and individuals can go broke, to jail, can’t print money and do not have the power to tax or incarcerate. Government does. One need only glance at a chart measuring the rate of increased revenue against spending. Both have been going up for decades. But since about 2001 the separation due to the massive spending has dwarfed rising revenue. (with a supercharger after 2010) As has been stated so clearly and correctly, we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. Western Europe ignored the beast for decades. Generations became dependent on the beast. The result is Western Europe in economic and social turmoil. Austerity after decades of gorging is exquisitely painful. The cost and pain of taming this beast will increase exponentially the longer it takes to put him on a diet. Please don’t succumb to the alluring call of resentment and envy. Support caging and slimming down the Gargantuan before he consumes the American dream.

KINDERGARTEN continued from page 7 She agreed that some kids do well with a full day of kindergarten but others don’t, and those parents who want full-day K have other options in the district. “If [parents] believe in the theory behind Global Ed, then they probably are going to believe in a modifiedday kindergarten,” she said. Lynch said it was never a question that Global Ed. might end, as some parents seemed to fear. Rather, she said, it’s a matter of equity. All other Solana Beach kindergarten classes are full day, and to have one school not offer it deprives those children of an equal opportunity to be enriched by the additional five and a half weeks of instruction the extra afternoon time would provide, she said. Another factor for Lynch was that the district’s transitional kindergarten (TK) class is full day. “So we were going to have full-day transitional kindergartners applying to go into a modified-day kindergarten,” she said. Although districts are now required to offer TK for children turning 5 in the fall months, it is an optional program, Appleton-Knapp pointed out. “So if a parent chooses that for their child, Global Ed is probably not a good fit for that child,” she said. Parent involvement is paramount A common theme from speakers was that parents were not involved, or even informed beforehand, of the decision. Appleton-Knapp said it was fundamentally wrong not to discuss the issue with parents. A key component of Global Education, she said, is that “parent involvement is paramount.” “It really shows they don’t understand the nature of the program if they don’t ask the parents before making such a big change,” she said. Lynch admitted that parents were not consulted in advance, saying, “There are decisions that the district needs to make that are in the best interest of all kids.” “We involve parents in so many of our decisions,” she said, but adding instructional minutes to make a kindergarten program consistent with the rest of the district and to benefit all students is not one of them. Lynch said it’s technically an administrative decision and nothing the school board would normally vote on because “it’s a continuation of something they’ve already voted on,” having approved full-day kindergarten in the district years ago. Whether this change will be implemented this fall

as planned or be subject to a vote by the school board is uncertain at this point, Lynch said. “It’s up to the board,” she said. “I don’t know what the board will do, but typically this is an administrative decision based on consistency in our district.” Not all parents oppose the change. “Some are for it and some against,” Denham said. “There are parents who have contacted us to say thank you and we support this,” Lynch said. Denham said change can be unsettling. “This program is rooted in tradition, and change is hard and it’s a change to the program,” she said. Change is hard for the teachers too, she said, noting that the district gave teachers opportunities to meet, talk about their concerns, and “think about what they can do and what this program might look like,” she said. Lynch said her impression from the last meeting with Global teachers was that they were on board with the decision to shift to full-day K. “They had come up with a great plan, they had done their own research, they confirmed the same things that we found,” she said. “Change can be difficult [when] it’s always been a certain way,” agreed Lynch, “even if it’s providing a little bit more, [because] that might mean what else might change.” But Lynch stressed that the intent was to add to the program, not take anything away from it. “We have kids who are English language learners and kids from lower socio-economic levels,” she said. “Especially for those students, full day is really meaningful.” Research shows, she said, that all children benefit from full-day kindergarten when comparisons are made between half-day and fullday programs. Later in the board meeting, Solana Beach California Teachers Association President Tarri Baldwin, after finishing her report, was asked by SBSD board member Debra Schade if any teachers had contacted her about the kindergarten issue at Skyline. Baldwin, who teaches at Solana Highlands School in Carmel Valley, said she knew the Global Ed teachers were doing site visits to observe full-day kindergarten at other schools but has not heard from any teachers about the issue. Appleton-Knapp said one of the primary reasons parents have so much passion for the program is the dedication of the teachers who she said are “hugely committed.” “We as parents experience the program with


them,” she said. “We have this really close connection with not only the teachers but with other parents. There’s this strong village atmosphere that’s created just by the nature of the program.” Denham said the program is open to anyone in the district, and includes some students from Rancho Santa Fe and Carmel Valley. “But probably 95 percent are from here in Solana Beach,” she said. Next steps Without the item formally on the agenda, board members were prohibited by the Brown Act from discussing the issue in public. So audience members at the April 25 meeting who had hoped for a discussion left disappointed. Lynch said the district’s bylaws allow anyone to submit an item for inclusion on a future agenda for discussion, and the board president and superintendent then meet to review the proposed agenda. So a request can be made to place the matter on an upcoming school board agenda. But the May agenda is packed, Lynch said, so it’s doubtful it would be added. Parents have other ideas. Appleton-Knapp said parents are requesting that the decision be postponed for one year and that a task force be created of parents, administrators and teachers, “to determine if the decision is warranted, and if it is warranted based on the findings of the task force, then to figure out the proper implementation.” “If they collected longitudinal data and showed there was an education deficiency for these kids, then yes, as a parent I’d want to look into ways to make sure that didn’t happen,” she said. The purpose of the task force would be to examine the research and study the success of local students. If the data support full-day kindergarten, Appleton-Knapp said the next steps of the task force would be “to figure out what this whole day would look like.” She questioned if the teachers had enough time between now and the fall to create an appropriate experience for that extra time. “There needs to be enough time to plan it out so it meets the standards of the rest of the program,” she said. Lynch, for her part, plans to focus on better communication. “Maybe it wasn’t communicated in the way that I thought it had been,” she said. “What we’ll do is work [on] getting out that this is OK, we’ve actually planned something pretty good and special, and it’s alright,” Lynch said.

RSF Attack Girls celebrate last tournament together with a big win The Rancho Santa Fe Attack Girls U18 White team captured the First Division trophy at the Las Vegas Premier Invitational soccer tournament held on March 22-24. Allowing only one goal the entire tournament, they tied Hemet and then beat teams from Nevada, Utah, and San Bernardino. The tightly bonded team has played together under Coach Nate Hetherington for five years, and this tournament will be the last time the team competes together as the players now prepare to graduate and go off to college. The tournament trophy marks a sweet end to a string of highly successful soccer seasons, but also celebrates the warm and wonderful friendships among its players and coach.

San Diego Premier storms Stanford In another outstanding performance, the San Diego Premier Elite field hockey team won its Under 16 pool and finished a close second in its Under 19 pool at the Stanford 7v7 Tournament recently in Palo Alto. Coached by Torrey Pines head coach Katy Moyneur and former U.S. National Team player Kristi Gannon Fisher, the Carmel Valley-based team went undefeated at the U16 level, chalking up four wins against no defeats. Even more impressive was their play at the U19 level, as the SDP freshmen chalked up three wins and only one defeat against the older girls. They came within two minutes and one goal of taking the pool championship and finished second on the basis of goal difference. Torrey Pines freshmen Gabi Jimenez and Shannon Yogerst led the team in scoring at Stanford with seven goals each; Gia Silahian (TP) and Tatiana Arias (Fallbrook) chipped in six goals apiece. Farah Farjood (TP), Rylie Pope (TP), Kyra Kent (Scripps Ranch) and Nina Randolph (La Costa Canyon) anchored an SDP defense that allowed just six goals in eight games. Keeper Laurel Stockwell (Valhalla) logged four shutouts. Next up is the Play for Pink field hockey tournament at Vista High School this weekend, during which SDP Elite will take on some of San Diego County’s top U16 teams including Mavericks (Encinitas), Coastal Clash (Carmel Valley), Hot Stix (Vista) and Longhorns (Vista).

FAIR continued from page 19 good governance which meets both private and public sector standards of organizational effectiveness. We could put together a board whose members have real experience and know-how in presiding over large organizations. A board that is mission driven, knows how to make policy, and exercises firm oversight over opera-

tions. A board that demands fiscal accountability. A board that represents both local and regional legitimate interests. A board that responds to citizen constituencies. A board that takes responsibility for minimizing environmental impacts such as traffic, noise, light, and pollution of nearby estuaries. A well structured and

prudently managed regional fairgrounds could make enough money from profitable activities to enable it to sponsor regional fair and agricultural activities true to its core mission. And it could do so without so many adverse impacts on local communities and the fragile lagoon environment. A true regional asset.

National champion continues winning style as TPHS tennis team’s freshman leader BY GIDEON RUBIN Tennis standout Taylor Fritz was still in eighth grade when it became apparent to him that within a year he’d find himself in an unusual role: A freshman leader on Torrey Pines’ perennially dominant tennis team. The early returns suggest that Fritz is handling his leadership role just fine. Last month he led the Falcons to an 18-0 Palomar League championship season, with his team positioned nicely for runs at the San Diego Section and state regional titles later this month. Along the way, he’s excelled at some of the state’s most prestigious individual tournaments. “I was excited to do it actually,� Fritz said of assuming a leadership role at Torrey Pines. “I was excited being the freshman coming in filling in for the No. 1 spot.� Fritz said it helped knowing several players on the team. “It wasn’t really that big of a deal, honestly,� Fritz said. His body of work couldn’t have hurt. Last summer, Fritz won

Fritz, who recently turned 15, is currently ranked No. 5 among 16-and-unders. “It is unusual,� Torrey Pines coach Chris Numbers said of Fritz’s role. “It’s a unique situation but he’s an excellent high school player and he’s a national champion.� Fritz leads a team loaded with young talent. He’s among four players Numbers said are college prospects. Sophomores Max Liu and Charles Pei, and junior Henry Ji are the others. On April 27, Fritz reached the finals of the prestigious Ojai tournament, becoming just the second freshman in tournament history to do so. Liu and Pei, the Falcons’ No. 2 and 3 singles players, reached the final 16 representing Torrey Pines as a

nament May 7-10, and hope to advance to the May 14-18 state regional tournament. Fritz, Liu, Pei and Ji hope to compete for the section individual championship in a May 20-24 tournament. Fritz acknowledged notable differences competing on the high school team compared to the U.S.T.A. circuit. The most obvious difference is that he’s playing just one set against an opponent, which he said presents some challenges. “It’s easy to lose your focus and get down and get in trouble, and then just like that you could lose a match,� he said. More importantly, the high school level emphasizes a team aspect that’s not part of the U.S.T.A. experience. “I like being under that pressure,� he said. “I like coming through and winning for the team. “That’s more of a reward.� Fritz acknowledged that there are pros and cons that come with having two professional tennis parents. “There are a lot of benefits,� he said. “They know what they’re talking about. They know where I want to be later on, but the drawback I guess is that they’re my parents so it’s kind of hard to listen to them sometimes.� On balance though, he believes it’s been a great benefit. “They have all this good information that can help me with my game, so it’s definitely more of a help than it is a drawback.�

doubles team amid an elite field of 64 teams. “He’s soft-spoken, but he leads by example and they all respect him and his results and his tennis game,� Numbers said. “He takes the leadership on just by his daily routine, with his results and winning his matches.� Fritz, whose parents are both former Grand Slam tennis players, has been playing since he was practically a toddler. When Fritz was 10, he was already beating more polished older players. That’s when it was apparent that he was a special player, said his father, Guy Fritz, who’s a Torrey Pines assistant coach. Taylor’s mother, Kathy May, was ranked as high as No. 8 in the world during her career. “All the other kids got nervous in big matches but he didn’t get nervous,� Guy Fritz said. “He would beat guys that he really shouldn’t have beaten.� Taylor Fritz has set himself apart in the amateur circuit with a powerful serve and big forehand shots to go along with exceptional tennis aptitude. “He has a lot of weapons at a young age that a lot of (high school-level) players don’t have,� Numbers said. Whereas most of his elite high school-level peers are solid and steady players who pounce on their opponents weaknesses, Fritz has the ability to force the issue with an aggressive playing style and powerful shots to back it up. “He has weapons where he can just beat you off the court,� Numbers said. “At the high school level he’s very scary right now. He can really hurt people.� The Falcons will look to the 6-foot-3 Fritz to inflict some damage in the coming weeks. They play in the San Diego Section Division I tour-

Local racehorse owners discuss Kentucky Derby and more BY JULIE SARNO Excitement builds as the Kentucky Derby approaches and a few weeks ago local couple Gary and Mary West had several 3-year-olds vying for a place in the starting gate for racing’s Run for the Roses. After 30 years of owning Thoroughbred racehorses, the couple is philosophical about not having a runner this year and talks about their past history with the race, known as “the best two minutes in sports.” First a little background: the Wests have owned property in Rancho Santa Fe for years and in 2008 moved to Rancho Santa Fe permanently. Locally, the couple owns West Steak and Seafood, Bistro West, West Inn Hotel & Suites and West Mart in Gary and Mary West Carlsbad. Courtesy photo Until recently, their major Kentucky Derby hope had been Flashback. Winner of the San Felipe (G2) in early March, Flashback finished second in the Santa Anita Derby (G1) on April 6, but has been sidelined. Following the race, trainer Bob Baffert was quoted as saying a chip was detected in the colt’s right knee. Flashback has had successful surgery and plans call for him to return to the races. The West’s Power Broker finished fifth in the Santa Anita Derby. Code West, the runner closest to qualifying to be one of the 20 in the starting gate at Churchill Downs on May 4, finished sixth in the Louisiana Derby (G2) and will not be headed to Louisville. Prior to the Santa Anita Derby, the couple answered questions for this newspaper and then gave a brief update on April 11. Question: Earlier this year, you had three runners gearing up for the spring 3-year-old Classics, Flashback, Code West and Power Broker. (Power Broker finished fifth in the $2,000,000 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita last November.) Which runner do you place the greatest hopes on at this point? Answer: This year we’re taking nothing for granted, given our past disappointment and run of bad luck with our horses in the Derby. In fact, we will be very pleased if we get one horse into the starting gate on May 4. On April 11, Gary West gave this update: “It is very hard to get a healthy horse to the Kentucky Derby, and we will not have one in the race this year because Flashback came out of the Santa Anita Derby with a small chip in his knee. The good news is, he has already had successful knee surgery and will race later this fall. Power Broker did not run well enough to qualify for the Derby but came out of the race well and plans for his next race will be deterSee OWNERS, page B28

‘We didn’t take it easy’ SB man leads winning ultra division team in long-distance Ragnar Relay BY KAREN BILLING For the second year in a row, Solana Beach resident Andy Hemmerich took part in the 192-mile Ragnar Relay from Huntington Beach to San Diego, running through the night, fighting delirium and exhaustion to raise funds for the Monarch School for homeless and at-risk youth. The runners took off from Huntington Beach at 1 p.m. on Friday, April 19, and finished on Saturday, April 20, at 2:19 p.m. While the average number of runners on a team is 12, Hemmerich competed with a team of six, deemed an ultra team, and for the second year in a row they won the ultra division, finishing in 25 hours and 19 minutes. “We didn’t take it easy,” Hemmerich said. Hemmerich’s team represented his tutoring business Hammer Prep in Sorrento Valley and included Del Mar resident Jordan Meltzer, Chuck McKeown, Caela Timinsky, Liz Johnson and Alec Fillmore. Last year Hemmerich’s team was part of 10 teams racing to benefit Monarch School, known as the Qualcomm 200 Miles for Monarch. This year the number of participating teams swelled to 25 and they raised more than $350,000 for the Monarch School. “It was a really, really good year,” Hemmerich said of the effort. At the launch party earlier this year for the fundraiser, San Diego Padres’ Will Venable attended with his student mentor at Monarch, Jackie. She was so emotional and touched that so many strangers were willing to raise money for her school that she recruited and organized her own team of Monarch students to run Ragnar as well. Hemmerich’s wife Katya Meyers, a professional triathlete, offered to help coach the Monarch team and they were able to secure a sponsorship from Asics who outfitted the team with new gear to run in. “They’re good kids, they all have really positive attitudes and they will tell you straight up that they are determined to d te Lis t s Ju

COURTESY PHOTO break the cycle of homelessness,” Hemmerich said. “They say ‘We’ve chosen education and we’re going to break the cycle.’ It’s neat to be a part of that.” Hemmerich grew up in Del Mar and graduated from Torrey Pines High School in 1996. He played soccer for Stanford and graduated with a degree in economics before launching a pro-soccer career that included stops in Major League Soccer with the San Jose Earthquakes and abroad with a New Zealand team. He founded his tutoring company Hammer Prep in 2002 after the conclusion of his soccer career. He said education has always been an important

cause for him to support, especially the kids at Monarch. “The return on education is infinite, you can’t really define how far education can take you,” Hemmerich said. “The reality is you’re taking students at Monarch that face adversity to the highest degree and allowing them the opportunity to be educated and reach a higher level of education. In the 2012 class, all of the students went on to higher education. If you can use education to keep kids out of trouble, to go on to higher levels of education and become productive members of society, it’s huge. And the bottom line is it feels good to help them.” Running Ragnar was not without its drama. Hemmerich’s team had a last minSee RELAY, Page B28

Team from The Grand Del Mar honor Earth Day with annual ‘Plant the Preserve’ event In honor of Earth Day, executives, managers and colleagues from The Grand Del Mar held the resort’s annual “Plant the Preserve” habitat restoration event within the 4,100-acre Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve on April 18. Employees joined forces to remove invasive species, mulch, weed and prepared a wide swath of land for the planting of indigenous species in the fall. More than 30 employees from The Grand Del Mar were led by the resort’s onsite naturalist, Dylan Jones, as well as its sustainability manager James Tosh. The Grand Del Mar also worked with Senior Ranger Gina Washington of the City of San Diego’s Parks and Recreation Department. Adjacent to The Grand Del Mar, Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve offers a compelling microcosm of San Diego’s natural habitat with abundant wildlife and native plant species amidst green meadows and hills, trickling streams and tree-lined trails. Non-native growth must be removed on an ongoing basis to allow native species to flourish and provide important food, shelter and nesting for indigenous animals.

For new Solana Beach music school, it’s all about rocking out

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY ROB LEDONNE North County resident James Couzens has been a professional musician for the past 25 years. “I’ve been doing a lot of work playing with cover bands, and at the casinos,” he explained. “On top of that, I’m also a stay-at-home dad. When you’re a performer, the nights are always later and as a dad, the mornings are always earlier.” In addition to performing and being a father, Couzens also teaches music at Solana Beach’s Music Mart, and over the years has been hearing a similar question from parents whose kids were enrolled in instrument lessons: “They would always ask me how to get students to practice more, and the answer to that would be to put them into bands so they had a reason to practice.” From there, Couzens started doing band mentoring — fostering a small youth music scene in Solana Beach that regularly book gigs. “It’s been a very successful model,” he explains, and wanted to somehow expand it. The result of which has turned into the Rockademy, a new music school in Solana Beach that caters to musicians between the ages of 5 and 17, teaching them the ins and outs of instruments as varied as drums, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, and even vocals. In addition, Couzens notes he even “has some teachers who can teach band instruments and brass.” From a mere idea to May’s upcoming official opening, it’s been a long two-year process filled with planning and patience. “Just for the past year, we’ve been looking for the right space. We held out, and we’re very happy with the spot we finally secured,” Couzens says of the location in Solana Beach on 524 Stevens Avenue, right next to Rudy’s Taco Shop. “We’ve had nothing but support from both students and parents, and we definitely wouldn’t be where we are without the support of a lot of good people,” said Couzens, who noted that some parents even threw a fundraiser to

help offset start-up costs. “Now we’re getting the equivalent of soccer parents who get real into sports; these parents have been getting really into their kids’ bands and instruments, which is great. It’s all starting to take on a life of its own. I’m surprised nobody else has supplied something like this to the market yet.” For now, student lessons have been taking place at homes in surrounding areas, but once the Rockademy is fully up and running, Couzens imagines a building humming with the sweet sound of music, and hopefully a spurring bigger, successful music scene in Solana Beach filled with bands made up of varying ages and genres. “It wouldn’t surprise me if that takes place,” Couzens muses. “We already have places like the Belly Up here, so I think Solana Beach is ready. We have a real gifted group of kids. Once in awhile, you see little prodigies pop up, but they all set their goals and get there eventually.” When starting up the Rockademy, Couzens says he also couldn’t do it without the help of people such as Icarus Line, a Los Angeles native who’s played with Ian Austbry of classic English rock band The Cult, and area musicians Spencer Bromley and Jason DeCors, whom he calls his “right and left hands.” Along with music instruction, Couzens hopes that someday the Rockadamy will grow even more. “We’re going to release a CD with all of our students on it in November but, in addition, we might even start up small record label and start recording there soon.” At the moment, Couzens and his crew are feverishly working to get their doors open. “We’re doing ceilings today... it’s a great location. I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a number of years. I’m glad we’re finally here.” For more information, check out their home on the web:

Raw and ready: New super-food vitality bar opens in Del Mar BY KELLEY CARLSON pen just four months at the Albertsons shopping center on Via de la Valle, Del Mar’s super-food vitality bar is already drawing customers seeking a superhealthy lifestyle. In fact, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., it’s not unusual to see lines going out the door at bBar, according to owner Lisa Odenweller. People of all ages come for fare that promises long-term health benefits from a menu concocted by Odenweller and a team of renowned raw food and holistic chefs: Simone Powers, Adina Niemerow, Matthew Kenney, Meredith Baird and Susan Sbicca. The freshness provides further appeal, as items are made on site — from almond milk and orange juice to dressing and flax crackers. “We love playing with super-food,” Odenweller said. “Everything is created for a purpose.” For example, there’s the Rockstar, a madeto-order smoothie that derives its bluishgreen color from E3Live Blue Majik, an algae product that aids in muscle recovery and alleviates inflammation, among other possible benefits. It’s blended with sprouted almond milk, coconut water, banana, Beaming Protein, coconut butter, date and vanilla. And then there’s the Sexy Mayan, a spicy chocolate concoction that contains maca to boost energy and libido. There are even “Beaming Kids Tastebud Approved” items for the younger set, such as the Beaming Basic in vanilla or chocolate. “As a parent, I feel really good about it,” Odenweller said. Her own children formulated one of the beverages: Mom I Ate My Veggies! that also has fruit and is filled with antioxidants, fiber, protein and vitamins.

Along with smoothies, bBar makes hydraulic cold-pressed juices that retain more vitamins and nutrients than produce squeezed in the standard juicer, and they last up to five days. A couple of them (including the Skinny Cooler with pineapple, cucumber, mint and jalapeño) can double as cocktail mixers. There are power tonics, such as the coldand-flu-fighting Immunity Booster. Especially popular during the winter, it’s a potent mix of orange juice, oregano oil, ginger, cayenne, astragalus and elderberry. Customers unsure of what smoothies or juices to order may request samples at the counter. While waiting for their selections, they may sit at a patio table; curl up on the couch underneath a TV that will eventually play videos touting the benefits of superfoods; or perch on a stool at the bar. There are more than just beverages at

bBar. If you need a snack, there’s the Beaming Protein Bite. It’s very much like a healthful cookie, but people eat them like candy. The Bite is a compact combination of coconut flour, almond butter, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, chia seeds, Beaming Protein, lucuma, goji berries and coconut sugar. For something a bit more substantial, bBar has a variety of raw foods, salads, bottled soups and quinoa that change daily. Among them are the Coconut Ceviche, a festively colored dish with coconut meat, finely diced cucumbers, grape tomatoes, red bell peppers, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro and Himalayan salt, all marinating in lime juice; and the cool and refreshing organic Thai Salad with almond Thai dressing. For those who want takeout, there are

bento boxes complete with vegetables, Beaming flax chips, quinoa and Chipotle Bitchin’ Dipping Sauce. For people who desire more than just a single healthy meal, bBar offers raw, organic, plant-based cleanses. “They’re designed to work for you,” Odenweller said, whether it’s to aid in weight loss, boost mental clarity, improve skin, discover possible food allergies, or to just feel better in general. BBar creates the base and it’s up to the consumer to adapt it to his or her needs. There are one-, three- and four-day cleanse options, and customers can collect the fresh items daily at the super-food vitality bar. The products can also be picked up at La Jolla Sports Club and at Yoga Six in Carlsbad, Point Loma and eventually 4S Ranch.

bBar’s counter is the spot for socializing and sipping a custom-made smoothie.

Bento boxes include vegetables, Beaming flax chips, quinoa and Chipotle Bitchin’ Dipping Sauce.

Three of bBar’s made-to-order smoothies include Rockstar, Sexy Mayan and Beaming Basic (vanilla).

Among the products sold at bBar are smoothies, juices, salads, bottled soups and desserts. PHOTOS BY KELLEY CARLSON

Longtime ‘Dog Whisperer’ more passionate than ever about his work with canines through ‘John’s Natural Dog Training’ BY KAREN BILLING John Rubin estimates that he’s trained about 10,000 dogs in the 22 years that he has been in business with John’s Natural Dog Training. After all those years, San Diego’s “Dog Whispererâ€? still enjoys the work he gets to do. “I love it, I absolutely love it,â€? Rubin said. “I still work six days a week and I can’t get enough. Some trainers will get burned out but I love it‌I’m getting older but I just look forward to every appointment I do, I have fun with the people and it’s a great job.â€? Rubin describes his training style as “middle of the roadâ€?; basic leash and collar training — no shock collars or dominance or training with food clickers. He is passionate about dog behavior and learning everything there is to know about the different breeds because the better you understand the breeds’ drives, natural instincts and characteristics, the easier they are to train. “It’s amazing how quickly dogs respond when you do the right thing and the right thing can be so little,â€? Rubin said. Throughout the years he’s learned everyone is different and has different lifestyles and goals for their dogs and that dog training is just as much about training the owners too. “I’ve always tried to really get to know the person to find out what they really want,â€? Rubin said. Growing up in the Ozarks of Missouri, Rubin was always around animals — his mother bred dogs and his great grandfather was a cattle rancher. Rubin received invaluable experience working on the farm with cattle, pigs and horses. Rubin got his start in animal training with horses and found he could apply a lot of those same techniques to dogs. He came out to California in 1986 and started the dog training business with his wife, Bonnie, in 1991. Along with head trainer Denelle Curry, Bonnie started

has allowed John to get back to his roots and do more training. “She’s got a full plate,� John said of Jessica. “She’s really the backbone of the company right now, she’s fantastic and I can’t say enough about her.� Rubin currently owns three dogs who happily spend time during the day at Kamp Kanine: Leftie, a 12-year-old German shepherd; Amber, a 2-and-ahalf-year-old rottweiler; and Stan, a 6-and-a-half monthold black Labrador. Group classes are offered locally at the Torrey Hills Shopping Center Dog Park and All Creatures Hospital in Del Mar, as well as locations in Carlsbad, Escondido and Mission Valley. Group classes are of-

fered in beginner, intermediate and advanced. John’s Natural Dog Training also offers “Canine Good Citizen� classes for animals to become therapy dogs, and rally classes, which are a more informal version of formal obedience training. “Our group classes are packed,� Rubin said. “We’ve been very, very, very successful and people really enjoy the group classes.� John’s Natural Dog Training also offers in-home training, its most popular program as it is comprehensive and can be customized. “Private in-home training is really the core of our business,� said Rubin. As many of the issues dogs have are related to their home environment, it makes sense to train them on their home turf. At home, one-on-one, Rubin tackles house-breaking, barking, stealing food, greeting strangers and getting along with children, just to name a few issues. Another good thing about home training, Rubin said, is that anyone in the family can get involved. Rubin also willingly takes on clients with serious behavior issues, such as aggression or anxiety. “For a lot of trainers it’s intimidating and difficult to deal with an aggressive dog but I love the challenge,� Rubin said. After working with horses, he isn’t intimidated by a 100-pound dog that is dog or people aggressive. “When most trainers would say ‘Pass,’ I don’t pass,� Rubin said. As he’s had success with more challenging clients, local veterinarians know to give him the nod. Clients who take part in the silver, gold or platinum home training programs gain unlimited admission to group training sessions, getting the benefit of training a dog for life. As Rubin said, “You never really stop training a dog.� To learn more, visit; 877-4478597.

Winston School Festival of the Arts to be held in Del Mar on May 18 Event highlights youths’ creativity in variety of arts BY KATHY DAY As The Winston School gears up for its eighth annual Festival of the Arts on Saturday, May 18, many of the students are putting finishing touches on their creations while others are selecting from work done earlier this year or rehearsing for performances. The festival, which is a highlight of the year for the school and the surrounding community, exemplifies the school’s “philosophy of helping students find and develop their passions and their strengths, whether that be in the arts, in the field of technology, in history, whatever,” said Headmaster Mike Peterson. “In the long run, if you become a good sound technician because of your work with the high school band, it won’t matter that much that you struggled in geography.” The festival is open to the public from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. and features original art, photographs, graphic arts and videos. There will also be a theatrical production with sets, music, lighting and sound that is a sampler of a play to be performed the following week by the high school drama club. Musicians from The Winston Band will play original and cover songs, and students will read original poetry in a European-style coffee house. To add to the festivities, there will be carnival games and a video game truck, as well as food. Admission is free but tickets must be purchased for food and games. There will also be a silent auction. Noted for giving students with learning challenges a college prep education in a family-like environment, Winston serves students from fourth to 12th grade. About 80 percent of them are involved directly in the festival, which raises funds to defray the costs of the arts programs. Although not a required component of the program, the arts offer many students an outlet that gives them a way to experience success they might find in the academic setting. “We love the festival because our students tend to be very strong in the arts and

get real joy out of their creative expression,” Peterson said. “So many of our students feel themselves to be fish-out-of-water in academic courses and through traditional modes of expression,

so this day frees them up. And for them to be seen by their parents, their peers and their teachers in a different way — in a situation where they are succeeding and comfortable, makes for a great moment in their year.” In addition to the work that’s available for sale, the school promotes its Summer Academy of the Arts where students learn and perform a musical from start to finish during the three-week afternoon program, Peterson said. This year they’ll present “Little Shop of Horrors.”

CCA’s Envision program presents dazzling multi-media show based on Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ BY DIANE Y. WELCH “Envision is an artists’ playground,” said Anne Whatoff, vocal director for Canyon Crest Academy (CCA). This creative playground was shared in the recent Canyon Crest Academy show “The Wall,” based on Pink Floyd’s iconic album. The show was staged by a huge cast of Envision students and staff in the school’s Proscenium Theater. It would have been a sell out, except tickets were free. The audience was thrilled by a show that included all six disciplines from the Envision arts program and was the school’s most ambitious production to date. There were about 170 performers in the theater, with over 60 who ran tech for the show, and created art and film, said Whatoff. It brought the appreciative audience to a roaring standing ovation. A multi-media presentation, it was a bold undertaking requiring a lot of preparation and rehearsal. The student production team began meeting early in the fall and was responsible for the visual concepts of the show. “We had five days of tech rehearsal on stage with the performers, but most of the groups began rehearsing at the beginning of the term,” said Whatoff. Dance students helped to choreograph the show and theater students created the actors’ scenes, as well as the lobby experience. Brian Köhn, CCA principal, directed the orchestra and choir — that, for most of the show, were dimly visible behind a wall of gauze — and the rock band, whose members were actually jazz students. Competitive auditions provided outstanding principal vocalists. “Pink/Floyd,” the lead character who evolved throughout the show, was played respectively by Justin

Verity, Jamie Hart, Savannah Lyddy and David Ahmadian. Pink’s mother and father were played by Emily Laliotis and John Paul Welch. The Worm (Judge) was played by Kevin Vonk, and the Schoolmaster was CCA teacher John Unwin. Other teachers were game to get in on the act. Dance director Reyna Stohl performed on stage alongside the students; Amy Villanova, music director, played in the orchestra; Anne Whatoff played piano; Nate Jarrell, visiting teaching musician, played a guitar duet with student Paris Sorci, and guest artist Mike Bogart, formerly of “Tower of Power,” belted out a vocal solo. “The Wall” was chosen because of its themes that happen in many people’s lives, said Köhn. “Feelings of isolation that make us feel closed off, something that teenagers can certainly understand as they struggle through this interesting period of time,” Köhn said. Köhn had taught music for 10 years at Coronado School of the Arts and then served as music director at Torrey Pines High School, before arriving at CCA when it opened in 2004, initially to nurture the Envision program. Troy Lingelbach and Jessica Tierney, both representatives from theater conservatory, helped plan the show and the incorporation of theater into its program. Troy said that it was hard to pick out one aspect of the show that stood out from the rest. “Thematically, the whole story, which is timeless and universal, was told so beautifully,” he remarked. Along with principal vocalists were dance and music instrumentalists, artists and videographers. “We didn’t try to do the album, we

Mercedes Forster as the octopus didn’t try to do the movie,” said Köhn. “We took the themes as the ideas and let the students run with that.” John Paul Welch was the sole freshman who snagged a principal role. Working on the show “was a fantastic opportunity,” he said. And the energy while on stage was electric, he added. Zoe Kennedy and Laura Fouquette, CCA juniors, were in the audience. “Everybody was so passionate, it was such a CCA show!” said Zoe. “ I think it’s wonderful that the show incorporates all aspects of the arts classes,” Laura remarked. “And I think that Emily Laliolta (Mother) was amazing.” David Jaffe, the school’s first principal, was also in the audience. “It was a brilliant production,” he said. “It represents everything that I hoped the school would become, and has gone way beyond it. I’m very proud!” Coming soon is a 24-hour marathon version of Moby Dick on May 24 and 25. Visit for ticket information.

Poseidon feels like home to popular Del Mar restaurant’s talented Executive Chef BY DIANE Y. WELCH When it comes to fine cuisine in San Diego there’s a lot of competition and the demand is often high to produce constant updates to menu choices. But sometimes even discerning customers just want things to stay the same. Chef Jamal Poseidon Executive knows this well. As Executive Chef for Chef Jamal Del Mar’s Poseidon Restaurant his favored dishes have many of his clientele advising him, “Don’t change the recipe, keep it the same. It’s perfect!� he said. These popular signature dishes include cioppino, an Italian seafood stew that’s made with a variety of seasonal seafood prepared in a tomato, lobster broth; pan-seared sea bass; and Loch Duart organic salmon imported from Scotland. “It’s top quality, very sweet, and we prepare it coated with pistachios, and served with garlic mashed potatoes and citrus-pomegranate beurre blanc sauce,� explained Jamal. The fine Mediterranean cuisine attracts tourists and locals. Both are also drawn to savor the sunsets on Poseidon’s patio which opens up during the summer months. “It’s a critical point for us because we have to be sure that everyone gets seated in time,� said Chef Jamal. “There is often a line of people waiting but we try to accommodate everyone.� Another aspect that has not changed about the long-time restaurant located on

Del Mar’s beachfront is its ownership. Tom Ranglas Sr. was living in El Cajon in 1968 and was looking for a coffee shop to purchase and run when a real estate agent told him that “The Fire Pit� — as it was named then — was for sale. With $48,500 borrowed from his mother, Ranglas was able to purchase the Del Mar restaurant business but not the property. The following year Ranglas took the opportunity to purchase the properties of both the restaurant and the adjacent Del Mar Motel, which were being sold as package deal, for the princely sum of $300,000. Ranglas joked that as a Greek immigrant he couldn’t even write that number, let alone fathom how he was going to pay for it. But discovering that the price was actually low, compared to other beachfront property, Ranglas took the financial risk. And the rest is history. Today his son, Tom Ranglas Jr., and daughter, Nikki, run the business but Ranglas Sr. still supervises everything and goes to the restaurant every day, said Jamal who has been executive chef since 2009. Jamal was attracted to Poseidon because of the reputation of the Ranglas family. “They are very generous, nice people,� said the Moroccan native who has his own interesting history. “Cooking has been in my blood ever since I was little,� said Jamal who was born in 1981 in the small town of Oujda. Growing up in a family that loved to cook Jamal was working in local restaurants by age 16. After two years of studying French literature Jamal quit and enrolled in culinary school to study French Classic Cuisine instead. When he graduated Jamal had the highest score in the entire country for his combined classes.

Jamal mastered the art of classic French and Mediterranean cuisine techniques when he studied in Southern France with the country’s top chefs, and after receiving his degree was admitted into the prestigious High Institute of Culinary Arts in Casablanca. He graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Food and Tourism Management. Through the International Chef’s program Jamal was hired by Disney World, which brought him to the USA. He then helped his friend, Chef Jake Brenchley, re-open the Scholars Inn Gourmet CafĂŠ in Indianapolis, Ind., which was voted “Best New Restaurantâ€? in town in 2008. Tired of the cold weather Jamal took a leap of faith and relocated to San Diego. He soon found his footing serving as Executive Chef at Del Mar’s Sunset Bar and Grill, after working under Justin Hoen at the Epazote Restaurant just prior to being hired at Poseidon Restaurant four years ago. It was a move that he will never regret. “Here it feels more like home,â€? he said.

Don’t be ‘shellfish’ – share crustaceans on National Shrimp Day The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Americans love their shrimp, chowing down 1.7 billion pounds a year. We’re paying homage to this beloved, multi-tasking crustacean that can be dressed up in cocktail sauce at a black tie event or skewered California casual style on the Barbie, by celebrating National Shrimp Day on May 10. Here’s a primer to help you navigate through the shoals of the shrimp world to get the most out of this remarkable seafood. The World is your Oyster Shrimp are low cal (about 14 calories apiece, unless you opt for the battered, deep-fried route), packed with lean protein, boneboosting Vitamin D, stressbusting B-12, heart-healthy omega-3’s, selenium, calcium and phosphorous. Although high in cholesterol, they are virtually free of saturated fats, so go ahead and shrimp-up. Do an Asian stir fry with jumbo shrimp and asparagus in a spicy chili paste, a Spanish paella, an Italian frittata blending shrimp with broccoli rabe, some southern hospitality with shrimp and grits, Big Easy Cajun with jambalaya and gumbo, a shrimp bisque paired with kale and quinoa or a Thai satay with peanut sauce. Toss grilled shrimp in your favorite pasta or salad or munch them au naturel with some sassy horseradish sauce. Walk on the Wild Side Although trawling for shrimp (wild-caught) is not a perfect practice as it can damage the ocean floor and snag innocent marine bystanders (bycatch), it still trumps farm-raised by a long shot. Unsustainable, industrial shrimp farms not only wreak havoc on communities and the environment, but create a potential health hazard to crustaceanphiles. As farms are crowded and unsanitary, the shrimps become contaminated with antibiotics to pesticides, passing along these toxins to the consumer.

Buyer’s Guide Where possible, buy wild-caught (or sustainably farmed) domestic and always from a reputable fishmonger. Read labels, and avoid questionable countries of origin. As shrimp are extremely perishable, choose wisely. Raw shrimp should be firm with an opaque appearance, and you should detect only a mild smell. A pungent ammonia aroma means it is past its “best when used by” date. Flash frozen beats “fresh” defrosted, and can be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months, cooked only 2 months. When storing in the fridge, shrimp should be consumed within 2 days. In for the Count Shrimp by the pound is designated by the “count” to determine the size. The lower the count, the larger the shrimp. And in a shrimp lover’s world, the bigger the better, especially for grilling. Under 10 per pound is labeled “Extra Colossal,” under 12 is “Super Colossal,” under 15 is “Colossal,” 16 to 20 is “Extra Jumbo,” 21 to 25 “Jumbo,” 26 to 30 “Extra Large,” 31 to 35 is “Large,” 41 to 50 is “Medium,” and 51 to 60 is “Small” (microscopic).

Shrimp Tid Bits •The Lion’s Share — Shrimp accounts for 30 percent of seafood sales in the U.S. •Designer Shades – The most popular shrimp species (1,900 in all) are the white, pink, brown, blue and striped Tiger. •Made in China — About 75 percent of farmed shrimp are produced in Asia. •Crustacean cousins — Prawns and shrimps are not created equal—the former having a more streamlined abdomen and longer legs with a texture and taste comparable to lobster. Cook’s tips •Shrimp must be cooked like Baby Bear’s porridge–just right. If overdone, it becomes chewy and rubbery, underdone, mushy and possibly unsafe. Shrimp cooks quickly (large – 3 to 5 minutes). When opaque throughout, it’s done. •When boiling shrimp, add a cup of white vinegar to remove any fishy taste. •Add cooked shrimp at the tail end of cooking a dish. •When cooking raw shrimp, leave the shell on to maintain flavor and succulent texture. •To enhance shrimp’s texture, soak in brine for an hour (mixture of water, sea salt and sugar). •Save and freeze shells to make a fish stock.

Knock-your-socks-off Shrimp Martini In honor of this fine day, here’s a celebratory recipe for an intoxicating seafood martini to toast the guest of honor. Cheers! Knock-yoursocks-off Shrimp Martini Serves 6 1 1/2 pounds wild-caught jumbo shrimp, cooked, halved 1 dozen whole colossal shrimp, cooked 2 cups vegetable cocktail 1 cup tomato juice 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce 1/4 cup Absolut Peppar Vodka plus additional for finishing 2 tablespoons red onion, minced 2 tablespoons Persian cucumber, minced 2 tablespoons cilantro, minced 2 Roma tomatoes, diced 1 firm avocado, diced In a medium size glass bowl combine the sauce ingredients. Set aside the dozen colossal shrimp, and add the jumbo shrimp to the sauce. Toss gently. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Evenly distribute the shrimp mixture into six martini glasses. Add 2 colossal shrimp to each martini and top with additional vodka as desired. Garnish with lemon twists or gigantic stuffed olives. For additional shrimp recipes e-mail kitchenshrink@

miles more as he got lost on the course. He left from Anaheim Stadium and was running along the canal. Someone must have moved the sign that told runners to cross the canal and he ended up running on the wrong side of the canal for several miles. When he realized his mistake, he had no idea where he was, had no cell phone and he did not know the phone number for anyone on the van. Not to mention he was in the middle of a race, wilting in 100-degree heat. He ended up finding a Subway restaurant in a strip mall and walked in shirtless and sweaty asking to use someone’s phone. He was

continued from page B1 ute shake-up as 24 hours before the race, one of their runners broke his foot in a rock climbing accident. The hunt was on to find someone who could leave on Friday morning and be willing to run 35 miles. They were able to get Liz Johnson. Johnson, who had just run the Boston Marathon the previous Monday. “She agreed to run with us, which was amazing,� Hemmerich said. Everyone on their team did six legs of the 36-leg race. Hemmerich was slated to run 30 miles of the 192-mile race but ended up doing three

able to connect with his wife to inform his team he was lost. His 4.3-mile leg had become a nearly 7-mile leg and the team had lost about an hour off their time. “It was very frustrating,� Hemmerich said. “We got back in the van and said, ‘Let’s just run harder then.’ Throughout the day and night everyone ran really, really hard and we ended up winning again.� The team had a few cases of getting lost and execution mishaps (“When you haven’t slept all night you’re not making the best decisions,� he notes) but still managed to finish in the top 10 overall. “In terms of how our runners felt, we all felt much fresher this year,� Hemmerich said, noting they ran 7:30-minute miles. “We were running really hard.� Hemmerich’s longest leg was a 6.7-mile run through the Temecula area in the middle of the night. He ran with a headlamp and vest with blinking lights. He said it’s not as scary running in the dark as it may seem because there are so many other teams out on the course (nearly 600 total). The hardest part about running in the dark is trusting your footing, he said. An additional challenge to the race is that toward the end, the team’s van is “disgusting.� He said the van starts out with everyone’s gear neatly packed and orga-

nized but by the later legs it looks like a laundry basket with stuff scattered everywhere and things difficult to find. Even with fatigue setting in and hamstrings screaming, Hemmerich said he found a way to push his limits, especially when remembering the cause he was running for. “You’re able to have a conversation with yourself and say, ‘What I’m facing here, I’m creating this pain.’ What they face, they don’t create. It’s placed on them.� As Hemmerich had been running 40 miles a week in preparation for the race, now that it’s over he has a little more free time. His next big goal is with his men’s soccer team, the San Diego County Soccer League’s Nomads. The team will travel to Seattle in June to play in the Over 30 Regionals, with the goal to win and go on to compete at the nationals in San Antonio in July. Hemmerich also already has his eye on next year’s race — the Qualcomm group’s goal is to have 100 teams racing and raise $1 million for the school.

OWNERS continued from page B1 mined in the next few weeks.� Question: Tell us about earlier contenders you have had for the Kentucky Derby in your 30 years of racing Thoroughbreds. Answer: In our first Derby in 1993, we raced Rockamundo. During that race, our rider saw blood on his silks and on the horse, so he pulled Rockamundo up, thinking the horse had been injured. It turned out that the blood was from another horse, Toss of the Coin, who had been cut badly during the race. In hindsight, Rockamundo could have finished the race since he wasn’t injured; however, after reviewing video footage of the race, we don’t believe he would have been able to hit the board regardless. In 2001, Dollar Bill was our second horse to be a Derby contender. Unfortunately, he ran into traffic problems and it just wasn’t his day. Buddha was scheduled to race in the Derby in 2002 and was the morning-line favorite. Unfortunately, he was scratched out of the Derby the day before the race after stepping on a small stone, which badly bruised his foot. Our most recent horse to run in the Derby was High Limit in 2005. He was injured during the race when another horse stepped on him, and he had to have multiple stitches. As our experience shows, there are a lot more things that can go wrong in the Derby than can go right. In fact, we have done so poorly in our previous races

that a 15th place finish would be an improvement! Question: Was your victory with 108-1 Rockamundo among your most thrilling wins with a 3-year-old? Answer: Yes, the Rockamundo win was our most exciting because it was very unexpected. It was our first Graded Stakes win, and it allowed us to have a horse in the Kentucky Derby, which is every horse owner’s dream. It’s probably the race that has kept us in this very difficult game through the years. Question: Gary and Mary, how did each of you become interested in horse racing? Gary: I read about racing horses as a teenager and became a big fan of the sport when I was 19 after moving to Omaha where Ak-Sar-Ben — one of the nation’s leading racetracks — was thriving. Mary: I owned a horse when I was in high school and have always loved horses and the sport of racing. When Gary and I first got married, we use to go to the Ak-Sar-Ben race track in Omaha and dreamed of someday owning a race horse. In 1980, we bought our first race horse, Joe Blow. He won 23 races for us and we raced him until he was 9 years old. We retired him in Valley, NE when his career ended. He lived to be 31 years old. Question: Currently you have horses with wellknown trainers on the southern California circuit Bob Baffert and Ron Ellis. Have you enjoyed much racing success at your home track, Del Mar, in the past? Answer: We have raced

OWNERS continued from page B28 very little at Del Mar in the past; however, last year, we brought out a horse named Casino Host who won the Del Mar Handicap (G2). Our racing stable will have a much larger presence at Del Mar this year. Personally, we aren’t fans of synthetic racing surfaces. If Del Mar had a dirt track we would have more horses here. Question: Right now, you rank among the top owners in thoroughbred racing for 2013, with over $700,000 in purses earned and more than 20 wins this season. How many runners are in your racing stable? Answer: We have 10 horses in California and 24 horses in other parts of the country. Question: The Senior Center downtown on 4th Avenue is now named the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center. When was the center renamed as a result of your donation? Answer: The official opening of the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center was April 21, 2010. While the Gary and Mary West Foundation is a lead sponsor, our impact is due to the partnerships we have with other nonprofit service

providers who bring expertise in housing, social work, entitlement benefits, physical therapy and fitness to the Wellness Center. Together, we assist more than 1,000 seniors per day, at or below the poverty level, with a variety of services. Question: Tell us a little about your commitment to seniors, particularly those who might be less fortunate. Answer: Part of our passion for improving senior wellness comes from Mary caring for her elderly mother. When we explored what we could do to help seniors, we found out that the country spends more per capita each year on saving the spotted owl (by the way, we have nothing against owls) than we do on our elderly population, who have helped make this country great. That led to the development of the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center, which offers meals, social experiences and preventive health care for seniors. These are ordinary folks who haven’t caught many breaks in life and many are teetering on the edge of survival. Our philanthropic investment helps the Center provide programmatic outcomes that literally change and save lives. From

our perspective, there is nothing better than that. Question: Tell us about the Gary and Mary West Foundation you formed in 2006? Are there other philanthropic causes locally or nationally which you are involved in? Answer: When Mary and I sold West Corporation (an international conglomerate with more than 35,000 employees and clients in banking, retail and technology sold in 2006), we wanted to give back to the country and our community in an impactful and meaningful way. We established the Gary and Mary West Foundation, which has four areas of focus that are close to our hearts and experience: lowering the cost of health care; supporting senior wellness initiatives; supporting at risk youth employment training; and supporting training programs for service dogs that help seniors and veterans. Our Foundation funds nonprofit organizations in San Diego and Omaha that are aligned with its mission and have a track record of achieving measurable and meaningful results. We view our grantees as our partners and we work collaboratively to ensure our efforts make a positive impact in the community. Question: Why did you

creating innovative, patientcentered solutions that deliver the right care at the right place at the right time. Question: What does the West Health Investment Fund focus on? Is it a mutual fund or a venture capital endeavor? Answer: A couple of years after founding the West Health Institute, it became apparent that an applied medical research organization alone couldn’t invent every technology that was going to help lower the cost of health care. In October 2011, we launched a venture capital fund with $100 million to provide risk capital for companies working on innovative solutions that could reduce the cost of health care. Our Fund is unique in its philanthropic nature as it commits any returns made from investments to medical research and other charitable activities. We do not profit from any returns. Question: Your racing silks are pink with black diamonds. Is there any significance to the color choice and design configuration? (Or did you just want something that is easily visible during a race which is what most owners tell me?) West answer (Mary): Gary and I worked on racing silks together. We wanted a

create the West Health Institute? What is its mission? Answer (from Gary): Our passion for this cause began more than thirty years ago when I was an assistant hospital administrator. Back then, the rate for a hospital room was less than $100 per day. After founding and building West Corporation, with more than 35,000 employees, Mary and I both became acutely aware of the pressing need to do something about the rising and unsustainable cost of health care in the United States so that everyone has the opportunity for prosperity and success. This experience led to our founding the West Health Institute, an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit applied medical research organization aimed at developing new technologies to lower the cost of health care. Established in 2009 and originally called the West Wireless Health Institute, the Institute is part of West Health, the name of an umbrella initiative that also includes the non-profit West Health Policy Center, and the for-profit West Health Investment Fund and West Health Incubator. These four mission-aligned entities are focused on lowering health care costs by

color that was easy to see at a distance, so we selected â&#x20AC;&#x153;hot pink,â&#x20AC;? and we both liked the black diamond design. At the time, very few people were using â&#x20AC;&#x153;hot pinkâ&#x20AC;? but that has changed over the years, and now it is one of the more popular racing silk colors. The following is synopsis of the careers of Gary and Mary West: Gary West began his career in hospital administration. Along with his wife Mary, the Wests have founded numerous companies over the last four decades, one of which was West Corporation. Founded in 1986, it is one of the largest customer relationship management companies in the world with a diversified portfolio of companies under its umbrella. In addition, the Wests have a range of enterprises based in Southern California and the Midwest. These include West Development, a management company that supports the Westsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; business interests; West Partners, a private equity firm; and West Family Investments, which is a sizeable private hedge fund located in Chicago, Illinois.
