Del Mar changes teen curfew, bans pets from tot lot BY JOE TASH Pets will be banned from the tot lot and south lawn at Powerhouse Park, the city’s teen curfew will be moved up an hour to 10 p.m. and beach and park visitors will no longer be allowed to use charcoal grills under three ordinances approved by the Del Mar City Council on Monday, May 20.

The council approved all three ordinances on its first reading. The new laws will come back for final adoption June 3, and they will take effect 30 days later if approved. The council directed staff to draft the Powerhouse Park ordinance last month, after resident Rich Ehrenfeld brought the suggestion to the city’s Parks and Recre-
ation Committee. Ehrenfeld said the tot lot and nearby lawn should be made “barefoot friendly” by restricting dogs from those areas. Council members agreed that allowing small children to play in areas where dogs have relieved themselves poses a potential health hazard. Two people questioned the need for the ordinance

BY JOE TASH The Santa Fe Irrigation District got some good news this month, as it learned that its wholesale water supplier plans to raise its prices 2.2 percent next year, as opposed to the increase of up to 12.2 percent that had been projected. The change means the district won’t face a steep hike in its own costs for supplying water to its customers in Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe and Fairbanks Ranch, thus reducing the pressure for water rate 1335CrestRoad.com
increases. The district is currently finalizing its budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1. “The budget right now doesn’t include any rate increase for either recycled water or potable (drinking) water,” district General Manager Michael Bardin told the board at its meeting on Thursday, May 16. If that situation holds, 2014 would mark the first time in at least See WATER, Page 6
teachers in the subjects of science, technology, music, art and PE. The 14 teachers represent one more teacher than the foundation funded last year and also makes up for the one less ESC teacher the Del Mar Union School District will be able to fund due to its budget cuts. Isaacman said he considers that 14 FTE teachers funding a big success as no one wanted to see the ESC program negatively impacted as the district was forced to make those tough budget decisions. Fundraising efforts this year received a big boost See EDUCATION, Page 6
Daytime burglars strike again in CV Another daytime burglary occurred in the Torrey Hills area of Carmel Valley on May 15 between 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Police said the burglary may possibly be linked to a burglary series (of at least seven homes in the area) where suspects may be casing and watching residents leave their homes. Suspects in this series are using rocks or bricks to break rear windows and doors, then mainly stealing money and jewelry, according to the San Diego Police Department Northwestern Division.

With an influx of funds coming in the last few weeks of the campaign, the Foundation was able to raise $1.32 million. “I’m absolutely floored, it’s amazing,” said Drew Isaacman, interim president of DMSEF. “To be able to exceed last year’s total and have the highest amount we’ve ever received, it’s a great feat.” This money will go toward funding 14 full-time equivalent (FTE) Extended Studies Curriculum (ESC)
and 2:30 p.m., a home on the 4600 block of Corte Mar de Corazon was burglarized. The suspect(s) used a rock to break the rear glass door to gain entry to the home. A resident of the home was in the upstairs bedroom during the break-in and got a description of the suspect before he fled. Jewelry was stolen, according to police. The suspect was described as a white male, 18-25 years old, “college-age,” 5’ 9” to 5’ 11” tall, and thin build. See BURGLARS, Page 18

Design of planned Pacific Highlands Ranch Middle School discussed at workshop BY KAREN BILLING Design plans are taking shape for the San Dieguito Union High School District’s new middle school in Pacific Highlands Ranch. The school, the first phase of which is expected to open in the fall of 2015, is looking to incorporate natural materials, such as stone and wood. In April, the district held a design workshop with Lionakis architecture group where they discussed a number of design themes. According to Tom Christian from Lionakis, the district’s preference is for transparency and visibility within the buildings, the use of wood and glass in the exteriors, open-shaded courtyards and “pleasant aesthetics.” The mixture of textures of wood, stone and “translucent” materials means that the campus’ six buildings will feature several glass exteriors. “I’m a little bit hesitant about that much glass,” said high school district board trustee Joyce Dalessandro,

Photo courtesy of Lionakis architecure group looking at the renderings. “I could live with a little less.” Eric Dill, the district’s assistant superintendent of business services, said the driving force behind the use of glass is to bring in more natural daylight and for the school to be as energy-efficient as possible. The district would like to build the school using standards promoted by CHPS, the Collaborative for High Performance Schools. CHPS’ goals are for schools to be built that “protect staff and student health, conserve energy, water and other natural resources and reduce waste, pollution and environmental degradation.” The campus will include two-story classroom buildings with interior corridors. According to the master plan, there will be 32 classrooms, eight science labs, a music classroom, art classroom, multi-use room, media center and gymnasium with locker rooms. The district prefers a look where the buildings’ geometry is layered, angled and interacts with each other, said
Christian. The landscape calls for ample trees and an open feel as people arrive at the school—they will be able to look into the campus and see beyond the front. There’s an aim for “openness” but without compromising student safety. The central courtyard will be big enough for the estimated enrollment of 1,000 students to freely roam with “informal and cozy” gathering spaces. A large trellis near the food service area will provide a covered spot for students to eat outside. The Quad space will have steps and planter walls as natural places for students to sit and gather. A stage at the back of the media center will provide opportunities for large gatherings for performances or promotion ceremonies. In April, the district adopted a resolution to acquire the 13.8-acre property with Proposition AA monies being used for the purchase price of $2.7 million. The cost of the new
middle school is estimated at $71.2 million. About $4.7 million remains in the North City West JPA (which includes the Del Mar Union School District and Solana Beach School District), funding that is earmarked for the middle school’s construction. According to the project’s master plan, efforts will be made to distinguish the middle school campus from its high school neighbor, Canyon Crest Academy. The plan calls for a dense grove of trees to be planted to create a “barrier park” between the two campuses. This park will also provide a fitness course available to both campuses and the community. The future Pacific Highlands Ranch community park is planned right next to the middle school space on the other side and a future city library is planned across the street in the village center.
Motorcyclist seriously injured in Carmel Valley accident A 22-year-old male was riding his motorcycle at a high rate of speed southbound on Carmel Country Rd. in Carmel Valley on May 20 around 6:35 p.m., according to San Diego Police Officer David Stafford. He lost control of the motorcycle and struck the center divider. He slid about 100 yards and struck a tree. The male was transported to a local trauma center with serious head and leg injuries. His injuries were life threatening as of presstime. Traffic Division is investigating.

Tight inventory and demand drive up home prices • Highest median price reported for April since 2008 High demand and tight inventory are driving up San Diego County’s home prices and sales. For the first time in five years the median price of a single family detached home in San Diego County hit $450,000, the highest median price since mid-2008, the North San Diego County Association of REALTORS® recently reported. Countywide median price of an existing, singlefamily detached home increased 3.45 percent to 450,000 in April compared to March’s $435,000, signaling the first time since February 2008 that the countywide median price has reached the $450,000 mark. April’s price was up 23.29 percent from $365,000 recorded in April 2012, marking eight consecutive months of year-over double digit gains. The median is the middle priced home sold; half the homes sold for more than the median, and half sold for less. •Low inventory and market competition significantly decreased the time a home spent on the market compared with a year ago. Homes sold faster in April
for the median priced home. •Mortgage rates decreased in April, with the 30-year fixed-mortgage interest rate averaging 3.45 percent, down from 3.57 percent in March 2013 and down from 3.91 percent in April 2012, according to Freddie Mac. Adjustable-mortgage interest rates remained unchanged from March, averaging 2.63 percent in April, but down from 2.78 percent in April 2012. — Submitted by the North San Diego County Association of REALTORS®

2013, with the median number of days it took to sell a single-family home decreasing to 24.9 days in April, down from 26.6 days in March, and down from 47.4 days in April 2012. •SFD listings (active and contingent) in San Diego County decreased 1.54 percent from March 2013 to April 2013 and decreased 38.48 percent year-over from April 2012. •The supply of homes for sale in San Diego County was down from a year ago. The April unsold inventory for existing, single-family detached homes was 3.1 months in April, down from 3.3 months in March, and down from 4.8 months in April 2012. •The percentage of households that could afford a median-priced home in San Diego County was 38 percent in April 2013, down from 40 percent in March. Affordability percentages assume homeowners place 20 percent down and spend no more than a third of their income on housing- an amount earned by 38 percent of county households

Scripps Proton Therapy Center doctor helping bring cancer treatment to ‘next level’ BY JOE TASH Dr. Huan Giap’s path from his native Vietnam to his current job of treating cancer patients with radiation therapy in San Diego took many twists and turns. As a teenager, Giap was among a group of Vietnamese “boat people” who landed in Thailand, where he spent a year in a refugee camp. Inspired by an American priest he met at the camp, Giap emigrated to the U.S. at age 18, intending to study for the priesthood, but instead earning a master’s degree in nuclear engineering at Texas A&M University. Giap then decided to go back to school, earning both a medical degree and a doctorate in a special joint program at the University of Texas Health Science Center. At 50, the local resident is about to embark on the next chapter of his career, as a member of the medical staff of a new proton therapy center under construction in the Carroll Canyon area of Mira Mesa, which will be operated by Scripps Health. Giap joins the center as chief of breast, gastrointestinal and lung proton beam therapy. The $220 million center is slated to open at the end of this summer, following three years of construction. When completed, the facility will have the capacity to treat 2,400 patients per year. While he has enjoyed all of his various endeavors over the past three decades, which have included working in a nuclear power plant and serving as chief medical officer for the company that is building the new Scripps proton therapy center, Giap said his true passion is treating patients. “At heart I’m a clinician, I’m a doctor. That job gives me the most satisfaction,” Giap said. Giap worked as a radiation oncologist at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla from 1998 to 2008, and served his residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center. Throughout his career, he has used both traditional X-ray radiation, as well as proton radiation, to treat patients with different forms of cancer. The major advantage of proton therapy, said Giap and Dr. Carl Rossi, medical director of the new proton therapy center, is that it can target tumors more precisely than traditional X-ray radiation, thus having less impact on surrounding healthy tissue and organs, and causing fewer side effects for patients. At the heart of the tech-
Dr. Huan Giap nology is a device called a cyclotron, which is just six feet wide and nine feet tall, but weighs 90 tons. Rossi said the machine is basically a large electro-magnet made of steel, which accelerates the protons to great speeds. The protons are then directed to the center’s five treatment rooms, where they are focused on the patients’ tumors. Unlike X-rays, which travel through the body, protons can be directed to stop at very precise points, with accuracy to within two to three millimeters. For example, he said, when proton therapy is used to treat breast cancer, it can stop at the chest wall, and avoid hitting the heart. A recent study found that women treated for breast cancer with X-ray radiation have a higher risk of developing heart disease later in life, because the heart is often exposed to radiation. Reducing both the short- and long-term side effects of cancer treatment is becoming more important as medical science advances, resulting in more people being cured and living for longer periods after treatment, Rossi said. That is especially true for children, who have a longer life expectancy and are also more susceptible to the harmful side effects of treatment. With proton therapy, Rossi said, “We treat substantially less good stuff (healthy tissue) to treat the bad stuff (cancer).” The idea of using proton therapy actually dates back to the 1940s, and initially, very small numbers of patients were treated in physics labs. Today, there are about 12 operating proton therapy facilities in the U.S., with about six more under construction, Rossi said. The new Scripps center will be the second in California and the third west of the Rockies. In the past, proton therapy has been used for pediatric cancer, as well as prostate and lung cancer and brain tumors, Giap said. It’s increasingly being used for
breast cancer, and tumors of the gastrointestinal tract, he said. Proton therapy is most beneficial for localized tumors, as opposed to cancers that are widespread in the body. “Proton therapy is a piece of the puzzle, bringing cancer treatment to the next level,” he said. “It’s exciting for San Diego County. I’m so happy to be a part of it,” Giap said. Giap and his wife, Anna, moved to Rancho Santa Fe about 10 years ago. Their two children, Fantine, 20, and Bosco, 19, attended R. Roger Rowe School. Both are now in college, and plan to follow their father into the field of radiation oncology, Giap said. Rossi, who worked with Giap at Loma Linda, said the new center is fortunate to have doctors such as Giap on staff. “He was the most brilliant person we had come through in the 20 years I was at Loma Linda,” Rossi said of his colleague.

Carmel Valley didn’t start out as a
cultural hotspot. It began, naturally enough, as a new community with great neighborhoods, schools and suburban shopping centers. Then a funny thing happened. Some of the most well-educated, well-informed, well-read and well-traveled families moved here. And slowly but surely it became more and more discerning, more and more cultivated. Maybe it’s time for its very own civic and cultural heart. In fact, maybe it’s high-time. Raise your hand if you agree.

EDUCATION continued from page 1 from strategies such as tapping into corporate partnerships and the first annual Carmel Valley 5K Run/Walk in December. The 5K was able to bring in $42,000 worth of contributions and a partnership with the new Whole Foods store, which donated 1 percent of its opening profits, netting $5,000. “Those two things in essence were the delta that allowed us to exceed last year’s contributions,” said Isaacman. Isaacman said the foundation would look for the 5K to grow even more this year as well as the corporate fundraising side. “With the influx of restaurants and businesses in our area, more restaurants are inquiring about standardized giving and partnerships and that’s exciting,” Issacman said. “Whole Foods really opened our eyes to that.” Isaacman also noted that the foundation was
able to maintain its lowest ever expense ratio this year at 7 percent. The foundation will undergo a transition in July when the 2013-14 board is formed and new officers are elected. Isaacman, who took over this year as an interim president after Amy Caterina stepped down, said he is interested in staying involved but does not know if he will again be president. In April, Del Mar Hills and Del Mar Heights parents suggested a change in the DMSEF district-wide fundraising model. Parents proposed a hybrid model where once a school has raised enough to cover its share of ESC funding, donations above that level would go back to the donating home school only. Isaacman said the new board would consider the parents’ proposal for a hybrid model, while noting that the foundation raised more money than ever using the current districtwide model, noting that the “schools really pulled together.”

WATER continued from page 1 seven years that district ratepayers won’t be greeted with a water rate increase in the new year. The district has imposed a total of 74 percent in rate increases over the past six years, including a 6 percent hike for this year. Other water agencies in San Diego County have imposed similar rate hikes. The district’s board of directors reviewed the proposed $22.3 million operating budget for next year on Thursday. The budget is available for review on the district’s website, sfidwater. org, and will be discussed at a public hearing on June 20, when the board will considering adopting the final spending plan. The operating budget will increase by $1.2 million, mostly due to increased costs for purchasing “imported” water. Over the past two years, the district has supplied about half of its customers’ needs with local water from Lake Hodges. But a dry winter means the district will only be able to pull about 30 percent of its water from the lake this year — and possibly as little as 15 percent — meaning that it will have to pur-
chase more expensive water from the San Diego County Water Authority, its wholesale water supplier. “We’ve had an extremely dry winter this year,” said Jeanne Deaver, administrative services manager. The amount of available local water during the new fiscal year will also depend on next winter’s rainfall totals, she said. Rather than raise rates to cover the cost of buying more imported water, the district plans to use $1 million from its rate stabilization reserve fund, according to the draft budget. On Thursday, the board also considered the district’s proposed $7.6 million capital improvement budget, which includes such projects as replacing pressure reducing stations, pumping stations and pipelines. One project on the list, purchasing new financial software to replace software originally installed in 1992, at a cost of $450,000, drew opposition from at least one board member. Director John Ingalls said that unless the item is removed from the budget, he will vote against the spending plan next month. Rather than purchasing its own software, Ingalls said, the district
should be looking at ways to share such software with neighboring water districts, or outsourcing to reduce costs. Deaver said the software in question is used for human resources, utility billing, customer service and other functions. However, Ingalls said that if the district installs its own individual software, that could acts at a “stumbling block” in the future if the district seeks to consolidate some or all of its functions with other neighboring water agencies. The question of consolidation came up earlier in the meeting when Brian Brady, general manager of the Fallbrook and Rainbow water agencies, gave a presentation about his agencies’ experience with consolidation. The two agencies recently formed a joint powers authority that shares many administrative functions, a move Brady said is saving about $500,000 in the first year, and will save $1 million annually by year three, primarily by reducing the number of employees. Director Greg Gruzdowich, who was elected last year, campaigned on a promise to push for a consolidation with neighbor-
ing water agencies. Gruzdowich said Thursday he shares Ingalls’ concerns, but that the board doesn’t have to decide immediately whether it will purchase its own software. Instead, he said, the money can be kept in the current budget, and the board will revisit the issue when staff comes forward with a formal proposal to buy and install the new software. The board also will have to consider whether its wants to push for full or partial consolidation with its neighboring agencies, Gruzdowich said. General Manager Bardin spoke against removing the software upgrade from the budget. “We’re getting down to tools that staff needs to do their job,” Bardin said. “We’re budgeting to be the best water district we can be.” The district is not making its budget decisions based on how they will affect potential future consolidations, he said. “For us that’s not at the top of the list of what we’re doing.” Ingalls was the only board member to call for removing the software project from next year’s budget, and no vote was taken in the issue.

Snafus with AP Spanish test create a perfect storm
BY MARSHA SUTTON Taking grueling Adv a n c e d Placement exams is never a walk in the park. But when a Marsha Sutton convergence of disasters hits, even the most well-prepared student can be reduced to tears. Proctors as well. That is exactly what happened this year during the AP Spanish language exam held May 7 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. These AP tests in general – four hours of testing with a 10-minute break – are torturous enough. But the mastermind who developed the AP Spanish language exam in particular wins the prize for excessive cruelty. According to Mike Grove, executive director of curriculum and assessment for the San Dieguito Union High School District, the Spanish test is unique “because of the way it’s structured.” “Every single year we have issues with it. It is notoriously the most difficult test,” Grove said at a meeting at Canyon Crest Academy May 16. About 20 distraught students and parents and one teacher came to hear how the district would explain the mishaps that plunged many students into despair over their testing experience. The complicating factor this year was the venue, he said, citing exterior intrusive noise from fairgrounds con-
struction equipment and poor sound quality due to inadequate rented audio equipment and bad acoustics in the exhibit hall where the test was administered. He apologized profusely, called the venue inappropriate, and said, “We take responsibility for that.” Because districts are not allowed to open the actual audio test material, San Dieguito had to test the sound using other methods that proved insufficient. In addition, there were “technical glitches,” he said. The timer broke, then the backup timer broke. Trains whistled by, the hall echoed, students’ recorders were faulty at times, students past the first few rows could not hear the audio, construction equipment beeped loudly at exactly the wrong moments, and other unforeseen disruptions created what Elloise Bennett called a perfect storm. Bennett, the AP coordinator for SDUHSD, said the Spanish test is the most difficult of all the AP tests to administer, even in the best of times. The test has several portions that depend on careful listening skills – multiple choice, essay, conversational dialogue and a presentation. All audio is in Spanish, as are the responses. For the multiple choice section, students listen to a recording to answer onequarter to one-third of the questions. And instead of reading a passage, they hear a passage. The essay portion has students listening to the au-
dio and then responding in writing. For the conversational portion, students listen and then record their responses as dialogue goes back and forth. The other listening piece provides some written instructions, pictures and audio, and then students are allowed five to six minutes to plan a presentation and organize a small speech that then gets recorded. The description left me speechless. We do this kind of thing to 16- and 17-yearolds? “It’s brutal,” Bennett agreed. But it gets worse. The functionality of the equipment becomes a critical factor. “We have to provide equipment that meets College Board standards,” she said. Students are provided by the district with individual recording devices and speak into a microphone
when told. They may have only a minute to speak. At various times, they are instructed to press buttons – play, record, pause, stop. Often they don’t know if they’ve recorded or not, Bennett said, until the end when they do a check. “Often kids press the wrong button or their recording doesn’t record, so they have to re-record before they can be released,” Bennett said. A 30-minute time can easily extend to one hour for re-recording. That’s exactly what happened on testing day because kids pressed the wrong buttons, the instructions didn’t match the equipment, or the recorders inexplicably failed. And there were those who couldn’t hear due to outside noise, inside echoes, the faulty sound system, or all the other Murphy’s Law disasters that befell the Bing Crosby Hall that day. Students can re-test

After learning of the mess, Bennett contacted College Board that day and according to Grove submitted her report “in incredible detail.” The purpose, he said, was to ask College Board to allow students to re-test. “We want to allow you the opportunity to do that test again,” he said to students. Bennett said the good news is that College Board has authorized re-testing, and soon. That’s also the bad news for students who studied and prepared for this perverse test for months – actually years, considering that it’s foreign language. Now it’s not over and the stress level gets extended. The new test has been scheduled for either May 29 or 30 (students will be notified which date), and there are no make-up exams. Students can choose whether to re-test, but only one

San Diego leads the charge to make cancer medicine better BY SCOTT M. LIPPMAN Recently, Time magazine emblazoned its cover with the headline “How to Cure Cancer” and suggested, perhaps a bit too breathlessly, that major breakthroughs were just around the corner. There is reason for optimism. Now is a time of truly unprecedented scientific innovation and clinical revolution in cancer research and therapy. We understand the nature of cancer better than ever; we have more tools and tricks. But progress still comes too slowly for the almost 600,000 Americans who will die this year from cancer. Cancer is the nation’s second leading cause of death (after heart disease), but No. 1 in the San Diego region. There is little time to celebrate our incomplete success. Cancer demands the full talents and resources of scientists and physicians everywhere, preferably working together. This has long been the mantra in San Diego, home to the second largest cluster of biotech companies in the U.S., and upon the research mesa here in La Jolla. Our communal sense of purpose and collaboration has been strength-
Dr. Scott Lippman ened by a recent strategic alliance to advance cancer medicine. In March 2013, the three National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers in La Jolla joined to create the novel San Diego NCI Cancer Centers Council, or C3, designed to more effectively leverage our distinct and combined strengths. Two C3 centers are the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and the SanfordBurnham Medical Research Institute, two of only seven NCI-designated basic science cancer centers nationwide. The third is UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, the region’s only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer
center and the clinical hub for exciting C3 interactions. These centers, through C3 and independently, collaborate with exceptional cancer researchers at other major institutes on the mesa such as the J Craig Venter Institute, The Scripps Research Institute, and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology. C3 allows us to broaden and deepen our respective and collective abilities. There will be greater interaction between the cancer centers, from bench to bedside. Doctors and scientists will share access to areas like bioinformatics, genomics and clinical trials. Both science and patients will benefit from major thrusts of C3 scientists, including precisely applied cancer therapy. The landscape of cancer and its care is changing rapidly. Genomic research has unraveled many underlying abnormalities that drive cancer. Hard experience has shown that there is no onesize-fits-all therapy. Fortunately, we now have powerful ways to sequence the DNA in, and identify specific aberrations that caused, a particular patient’s cancer. Many drugs now available can specifically target
the genomic drivers in tumors. These drugs often can kill tumor cells, which harbor the drug’s target, with minimal damage to healthy organs, where the target is absent. This makes for effective drugs with few side effects. Still, the drugs must be given to the “right” patients, which happens only after we use the most advanced genomic sequencing technologies to understand each patient’s tumor. This is precision or personalized cancer medicine. Top scientists and investigators, such as Razelle Kurzrock, M.D., are working within C3 to bring personalized therapy to cancer patients
now, not five or ten years from now. Her research has shown that molecular profiling and personalized, targeted therapy benefited about 50 percent of patients with advanced cancer – only about 5 percent of these patients would be expected to benefit from conventional therapy. She is now developing the Center for Personalized Cancer Therapy at the Moores Cancer Center, where C3 investigators and industry partners in San Diego will bring the personalized products of their collaborative research to patients in the clinic. In the months ahead, I will describe these efforts and the challenges we face as scientists, doctors, citizens and
patients. I will talk about the cancer picture, from the marvelous curative possibilities of stem cells to the realities of palliative care. We may never “cure” cancer – no matter what magazine covers declare – but it is becoming increasingly possible to disrobe the “emperor of all maladies,” to strip away cancer’s clever defenses and reduce it to near invisibility. That would be something to see. — Scott M. Lippman, M.D., is Director of UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. His column on medical advances from the front lines of cancer research and care will appear in this newspaper once a month. You can reach Dr. Lippman at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Members of the Canyon Crest Music Composition Club.
Pioneering Canyon Crest Academy music club produces CD
BY ROB LEDONNE Alvin Liang has been interested in music his entire life. A junior at Canyon Crest Academy who grew up in the North County, Liang first learned to play piano about 11 years ago: “When I reached high school, I took a music composition class and realized all you could do with the technology (concerning putting together music).” Alvin was so smitten by composition and music production that he and his friend Ozan Berlinguette decided to start up the CCA Composition Club earlier this year devoted to those disciplines. “We try to create an environment that makes people easily create compositions and have access to really great software whenever they want,” Alvin said. Alvin credits Canyon Crest Academy with pioneering the idea of classes devoted to composition and wanted to build on that. “A lot of people know Canyon Crest as a unique and creative school,” Alvin said. “However, many don’t know that we’re the first school in the United States to have a Digital Composition class, a Recording Arts class, and a Digital and Audio Production and Performance class. The latter of which was new this year.” The club, which meets one day a week and runs the gamut of students between freshmen and seniors, focuses on a variety of genres; members are free to choose their own style of music to work on. Most work on electronic or EDM (tracks that could be played in a club), but others, such as Josh Masters, focus on jazz. Alvin likes to compose scores that could be used for video games or film, a hobby that is linked to his interest in classical music: “I found a person on YouTube who was creating his own video game and needed a score. I submitted and he chose me, so my interest has grown from there.” Even though the club is in its first year, it’s already launched a variety of successful projects, including a music festival called CCAchella (a play on Canyon Crest and Coachella, the well-known music festival held in Indio) which, according to Alvin, “turned out to be a big success. Over 300 people came, and everyone had a lot of fun.” In addition, the club recently produced a full CD, “The First Byte,” on sale for students that features a variety of tracks members have been working on throughout the year. Said Alvin, “We’ve been selling it in the cafeteria and from what I hear, it seems like everyone is enjoying it. Some people have commented on specific tracks they think are good, which is awesome.” The club is advised by teacher Vikas Srivastava, an alumnus of Harvard and UCSD, who naturally happens to teach the music classes at the school as well. “He’s very knowledgeable, and several of us owe our basic knowledge to him,” said Alvin. “He’s very flexible with our projects and has a teaching style based on the belief of trying things out and experimenting. If we ever need advice, he’s always there to help us.” Alvin, who said he’s planning on pursuing music after he graduates, is looking forward to his second and final year heading the club. “After I leave, I would definitely want this club to keep going. In this modern era, audio technology is becoming more and more accessible, and we at Canyon Crest have an advantage over other people with what we have access to.” To listen to some of the club’s music, visit youtube.com/user/ccacompositionclub
Canyon Crest Academy places 3rd in National Math Contest Canyon Crest Academy recently placed third in the 2013 Collaborative Problem-Solving Contest (CPSC), a national mathematics contest administered by National Assessment & Testing (http://www.natassessment.com). While most math competitions encourage rote memorization, familiar problems, and quick mental reflexes, the CPSC presents schools with 15 unique, intricate problems to be solved over the course of a week. Under the guidance of coach Brian Shay, students worked together using brainstorming, collaboration, research, and technology to solve the problems, gaining experience with skills that will be critical in college and their careers.

Santa Fe Christian Schools Junior Caroline Peck (second from left, second row) receives Yale Club of San Diego Book Award.
Santa Fe Christian junior a recipient of Yale Club of San Diego Book Award Caroline Claire Peck, a junior at Santa Fe Christian Schools, was one of 16 outstanding juniors in San Diego County who was awarded the Yale Club of San Diego Book Award at the annual ceremony on May 18. All students nominated by their schools for this recognition had to be in the top 2-3 percent of their class, and demonstrate leadership and “outstanding personal character and intellectual promise,” according to the Yale Club of San Diego. Award recipients received a Yale-affiliated book chosen according to their interests, a DVD of an Open Yale Course, as well as a certificate highlighting their achievement. Peck received “Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy” by Emily Bazelon, and the Yale Open Course DVD: Global Problems of Population Growth. The Yale Club Book Award was established to identify outstanding high school students and acknowledge their academic achievements. It also serves to “encourage students who might not otherwise have thought themselves likely candidates to consider Yale University as a possible choice for their college studies,” said Giovanni Chimienti, Ph.D., university professor, retired, and chairman of the 2013 Yale Club of San Diego Book Award committee. Other Yale alumni serving on the Committee were: Paul Friedman, MD, professor emeritus, Radiology; The Honorable Robert Longstreth, judge, Superior Court San Diego County; Elizabeth A. Porterfield, attorney at law; and Bryna Kranzler, author.

Del Mar Heights resident is named a `Healthcare Heroâ€™ Del Mar Heights resident Frank Ault has been selected for a 2013 Healthcare Hero award from the Grossmont Healthcare District (GHD). Ault, a Sempra Energy retiree and volunteer firefighter, is a volunteer with the San Diego Regional Fire Foundation. He has served as a member of the Fire Foundation for 21 of its 24 years in existence, and has served as chairman for the past 18 years. GHD said Ault has led the Foundation in nearly every aspect, from fundraising to operations to visionary planning. The nonprofit Foundation funds the purchase of fire rescue and safety equipment and medical equipment, including medical supplies, used by 30 rural fire departments manned primarily by volunteer firefighters. Since its founding, the Fire Foundation has awarded $4 million in grants, a far cry from the $10,000 per year it awarded in its first five years. Firefighters at these 30 volunteer fire stations, which serve more than 60 percent of San Diego County, respond to more than 6,000 emergencies annually. More than 80 percent of these emergency calls are medical related. Over the years, the equipment purchased by the Foundation has included tires for fire

Medical-related equipment has included supplies, automated electronic defibrillators, rope rescue systems, extrication equipment and auto-pulse CPR equipment. After the Cedar, Paradise and Otay wildfires in 2003 and the Harris, Witch Creek, Rice and Poomacho wildfires in 2007, the Foundation provided grants that repaired or replaced damaged equipment, and restored volunteer fire departments to pre-wildfire levels of preparedness. After a 37-year career with SDG&E and Sempra Energy, Ault retired in 2006 as senior vice president and controller with Sempra Energy. In addition to the Fire Foundation, Ault also volunteers as board chair of the Mt. Laguna Volunteer Fire Dept. He also is a 27-year volunteer with the San Diego Foundation, included serving as its board chairman and is on the board of the San Diego Foundationâ€™s Disaster Fund. The Disaster Fund raised more than $12 million that assisted recovery efforts for communities impacted by the 2003 and 2007 wildfires. Ault was among a group of six 2013 GHD Healthcare Hero award recipients, which included two physicians, a financial planner, community supporter and high school senior.

Heights/Hills pen pals to meet at Friendship Games June 7 BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Hills and Del Mar Heights student communities will come together on Friday, June 7, for the Friendship Games, the culmination of four months of a pen pal program between the two schools. â€œHeights and Hills share the same school boundaries so kids who are neighbors may go to different schools,â€? said Erica Halpern, Heights PTA president. â€œOur kids are all part of the same community of Del Mar and through the pen pal program they get to know each other and develop real friendships. At the same time they are developing their writing and communication skills.â€? Since January of this year, four first grade classes at Del Mar Heights and one kindergarten class, and two first grade classes and one second grade class at Del Mar Hills have been exchanging letters. By the time of the Friendship Games they will have exchanged four letters with their pen pal. At the games, the students will bring a fifth letter, a book to exchange and finally meet each other for the first time. The pen pals will then enjoy lunch and popsicles together and participate in parachute games and a water balloon toss. â€œWhether they are in the same neighborhoods or on the beach, our kids will be better connected to each other and so will Del Mar families,â€? Halpern said. â€œWe believe strong communities provide the best environment for kids as they are growing up.â€?

World-famous skateboarder speaks at local church BY ASHLEY MACKIN Christian Hosoi, worldrenowned skateboarder, XGames winner and longtime rival to Tony Hawk, has an in-depth story to tell. He started skateboarding at age 10, was named the top amateur in the nation by age 12 and was pro by age 14, getting endorsement deals and prize money on a regular basis. But at the Cornerstone Church of San Diego, during its May 5 services at the Cuvier Club, he told the other side to his story – the side that involves heavy drug use, prison time and eventually becoming a pastor. Offering advice to the youth in the audience, many of whom brought skateboards and helmets for him to sign, Hosoi talked with Cornerstone Pastor Sergio De La Mora about what it was like to have all the fame a teenager could want, and what can happen when it gets out of hand. Having grown up in Hawaii, Hosoi is a longtime surfer and said skateboarding, even at age 6 or 7, was like “surfing on land,” he said. “I got that feeling, I got that rush.” Having skated every day, he was named top amateur skateboarder in the nation by age 12. At that time, he skated with pioneer

skaters Tony Alva and Jay Adams (a mere mention of the names drew cheers from the congregation), and had endorsement deals and sponsorships, eventually signing with Dogtown Skateboards. Things were looking great for Hosoi, he spent he teenage years traveling, competing, and placing in the top three at nearly every completion in which he participated from 1985 to 2010. At 20 years old, “you’re at the top of the top, you have everything that a 20-year-old would want… what was your life like at 20?” asked Pastor De La Mora. “I had pretty much everything the world had to offer … making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, traveling around the world and you think you are the
guy, you think ‘you want to be me’ like, ‘I’m it,’ ” he said. “I had to continue to reproduce that feeling over and over and if I wasn’t the guy to be on the next cover or get their picture in a magazine, I would think ‘what’s going on?’ My identity was slipping. I tried to find it in money, fame, girls, friends (and) being popular.” He tried finding it through drugs. Admitting he had been smoking marijuana since age 10, he moved on to harder and harder drugs. “I thought I’d get artistic and creative,” he said in a self-mocking way. His drug use and attempted smuggling eventually landed him in prison. “They told me I was looking at 10 years, you’re like ‘yeah right,’ but I went inside and the inmates were telling me, ‘yeah you’re looking at 10 years.’ All that mattered didn’t matter any more. All I could think about was ‘why me?’ ” he said. Deemed a danger to the community and a threat to society, he was sentenced to five years. His first phone call was to his girlfriend at the time, who had quit drugs herself and started attending church. Her advice was to trust in God to get
through his sentence. He joked that he didn’t need God, he needed a lawyer. Still, he decided to track down a Bible. “I’ve been in a million hotel rooms, seen a million Bibles; I never opened it one time in my whole life. So I decided to look for one and read it,” he said. He opened it to a random page, which was in the book of Genesis. He immediately thought of the Star Trek movie. Flipping to another page, he landed on
Psalms and said, “What’s a pa-sam?” Eventually finding something to which he could relate, he started reading. From there, he said, his life was never the same. Saying that he felt “set free” by his prison sentence, Hosoi now travels, speaking to youth groups and churches about his life story, and published his autobiography “My Life as a skateboarder, junkie, inmate, pastor.”
Max’s Ring Of Fire gears up for 5th Annual Touch A Truck event June 8 Since its launch in 2009, Touch A Truck has become an annual tradition for families throughout Southern California. This year’s event, which takes place Saturday, June 8, at Qualcomm Stadium, promises to be the biggest and loudest to date with even more vehicles, food trucks and young musical talent! If that isn’t reason enough to pack up the family mini-van, consider your admission to Touch A Truck is a donation to help kids fighting cancer. Money raised at Touch A Truck goes directly to childhood cancer research and clinical trials at Rady Children’s Hospital and 12 other hospitals across the U.S. Touch A Truck showcases a massive collection of personal, commercial, recreational, law enforcement and military vehicles, and gives kids the unique opportunity to climb in and get behind the wheels of these larger than life vehicles. The event will also feature an amazing food truck row with more than 20 of San Diego’s favorite food trucks, plus two live music stages showcasing up-and-coming young talent, including
Sabrina Lentini, Gavyn Bailey and the Chrome Jets. In addition, characters from Star Wars, Shamu and even the elusive Ronald McDonald will be walking the event and mingling with attendees! Touch A Truck is presented by Max’s Ring of Fire. Max Mikulak loved everything on wheels. After he lost his hard-fought battle with cancer at the tender age of 7, his parents Melissa and Andy Mikulak of Del Mar wanted to honor his memory by holding an event that Max himself would have loved to raise awareness and money for kids’ cancer research. Since its debut, Touch A Truck San Diego has hosted more than 15,000 guests and raised nearly $100,000 to fight childhood cancer. Touch A Truck will take place Saturday, June 8 at Qualcomm Stadium. Doors open at 10 a.m. Tickets are $10 per person, and parking for the event is free. To purchase tickets online, go to https://mrof.webconnex.com/tat13.

SB senior enjoys experience on Torrey Pines High School’s winning surf team BY ROB LEDONNE Solana Beach resident and Torrey Pines High School senior Kyle Timm first learned to surf when he was around 10 years old. “My brother and dad always surfed,” he remembers. “I would always go to the shore to hang out with them. I’ve been surfing every day since.” Kyle took after his older brother Dale, and when Dale joined the surf team at Torrey Pines High School, Kyle thought he’d like to join someday as well. When he became a freshman at Torrey Pines he finally did. Coached by ex-professional surfers Shea Roney and Ryan Judson, the Torrey Pines High School Surf Team takes full advantage of the school’s proximity to the Pacific Ocean, and has been around for as long as Kyle can remember. “We have about 30 or 40 kids on the team, and normally around 10 or 15 of our best surfers go to competitions,” he explains. Practice is only one day a week at Del Mar Beach, but most kids on the team, many of whom have been surfing for much of their lives like Kyle, surf every day regardless of practice. However, being on the team makes everyone better surfers individually thanks to the guidance of Roney and Judson. “During practice they’ll watch and sometimes film us, giving us pointers afterwards on how to improve our surfing skills. It’s very helpful to have that; since they both surfed professionally, they know a lot about surfing in competition,” Kyle said. Perhaps that’s the reason why the team is known as one of the best not only in
Kyle Timm North County, but the San Diego area in general. Just recently, the team competed in the Oakley High School Surf Team challenge, which lures 10 high school teams from around the area to compete for a grand prize of $5,000. Kyle was one out of the four-person team representing Torrey Pines, and notes that competitions are much more nerve wracking than just going out there for fun. “It’s stressful because you’re not just competing for yourself, you’re competing for your school,” Kyle said. “There’s a lot on the line, but it makes it more fun if you do well, because you do well for everyone.” The competition is set up by having one member of the team go out into the water to surf three separate waves the best See SURF, page 22

San Diego Breakers win again! The Breakers defied the odds again! Last time, they won The National Cooperstown Tournament in New York. This time, the team, which is now a 13U team made up of all local kids (highly unusual in competitive baseball) and has four 12-year olds on its team, won the recent D1Triple Crown Tournament. Under the direction of Coach Glick and his staff, this local, under-aged team made themselves proud and the entire community proud by proving anything is possible. The team’s goal is to help prepare kids for high school baseball by improving their skills, by recognizing the importance of being part of a team and by providing positive life experiences on and off the field.

•I’m not retired, I have a young family, I want my future Torrey Pines students to have more than one place to explore locally. •I’m not retired. I’d like to be able to go to Trader Joe’s to pick things up on my way home from work, because there is no place to park at Ralphs. •I’m not retired. I have a young family.

Right-Sizing One Paseo
LORINE WRIGHT Executive Editor firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
BY ROBERT SCOTT When assessing the One Paseo concept, a fundamental question I ask is, “How much is too much?” On the flip side, “at what point will scaling the project back make it functionally incapable of desired Main Street objectives?” Establishing appropriate objective parameters for the use mix, densities, floor area ratio (or FAR), building heights, and number of stories will help achieve a project of appropriate size and scale for a true community town center while complementing an established community character. Let’s face it; the retail, restaurant, entertainment, and cultural uses are the drivers to create a vibrant town center core for Carmel Valley. For this project to work, we will need enough density and “critical mass” to create the vitality and energy to achieve the One Paseo “Main Street” vision. In this context, “critical mass” is a term I use to describe the amount of commercial square-footage devoted to retail, restaurant, and entertainment uses needed to achieve the vitality of a village center commercial core. My research suggests that the One Paseo project will need to provide 200,000-250,000 s.f. of retail, restaurant, entertainment, and cultural use space in order to reach the critical mass necessary to realize a community hub and centerpiece. The office and residential components are complementary uses that help support the commercial retail uses but do provide direct benefit to the larger community. The office and residential components of this project could be scaled back to be more in keeping with surrounding community character. The 8-story buildings as currently proposed are incongruent with the established character of office development in the area. I have walked El Camino Real, High Bluff Drive, and Kilroy’s campus along SR56 to survey the building heights and number of stories of all commercial office buildings. Except for the Marriott and US Bank buildings, the “typical” Carmel Valley office building averages 4-6 stories in size. By allowing the size and densities of the commercial retail component, and scaling back the office and residential components to match surrounding office building development, I believe the project can be “right-sized.” I have heard project opponents suggest scaling back the retail commercial component to 70,000 square-feet. At that point, the project will likely appear more like an extension of Del Mar Highlands where there are more shops but no real zest, no town center core. Just more traffic without the vitality. I support the concept of a mixed-use One Paseo project as an opportunity to fulfill our Community Plan’s vision for a true town center and provide exceptional benefits for our community. I also believe the project should be revised and scaled back to find a better balance point. Using objective criteria to regulate the project size and scale would help keep the project within acceptable community thresholds while achieving the vitality of a true town center for our community.

Fiesta Del Sol: A pre-summer celebration for families, music and giving back to the community BY CAROLYN COHEN AND LINETTE PAGE As North County coastal residents patiently wait for the summer months to fill weekends with beach time and barbeques, for the last 34 years Solana Beach jump-starts the cherished summertime season with the Fiesta Del Sol – a free, music-filled celebration inviting families, friends and visitors to our city during the first weekend in June. Thanks to a strong collaborative effort between the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce, city of Solana Beach and the Belly Up, more than 50,000 festival goers will again experience one of the most unique and anticipated events of the year in the San Diego region. The Fiesta Del Sol is a two-day festival that truly lives up to the billing as an event with something for everyone. Families can stroll the music-filled streets surrounding Fletcher’s Cove visiting with more than 200 vendors offering an eclectic array of exhibits, arts and crafts, children’s activities and an international-themed food court. The world famous Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach lends its talents and musical connections to create an awesome ensemble of musicians taking turns on the stage for two straight days. This year’s headliners, The Grey Boy AllStars on Saturday and Tristan Prettyman on Sunday, are both locally grown talent that have parlayed their hard work into international success. Throughout the day the stage will be filled with a sweeping variety of genres, some traditional and some taking a “mashup” approach, keeping the creative juices flowing by breaking the mold of traditional music and fusing styles of sound. For example, taking the stage at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday is Anuhea — Hawaii’s number one female artist. Anuhea blends engaging lyrics, acoustic soul, pop, R&B, rap and reggae into a style that has helped create her a reputation as a rising star in the music industry. Her signature guitar rhythms, sultry vocals and honest song writing display unique talents that continue capturing new audiences each time she performs. Adults can enjoy a beverage or two while taking in the music at the adults-only beer and wine gardens. The Del Sol Lions Club will be volunteering at the Fiesta Del Sol’s wine garden, working for tips with the goal of raising $1,000 for backpacks and schools supplies for students at Casa de Amistad – a local non-profit which manages a K-12 tutoring and mentoring program for children in need in Solana Beach. We encourage you to stop in, grab a glass of wine while listening to some tunes and pitch in a few dollars on this community effort. For the littler Fiesta-goers, the Fiesta Del Sol also has a kids center filled with rides, games and hands-on activities. Favorite destinations include the hair salon and face painter. The climbing wall and bounce houses are always a big hit too. Our Solana Beach community is proud to open its doors during this great weekend to give the surrounding communities a taste of our businesses, quality of life and the city we are lucky enough to enjoy year-round. Our Highway 101 redevelopment is underway and many of the pedestrian friendly features – like newly paved, wider sidewalks – are already complete. We encourage you to take stroll down 101 and visit some of the unique shops dotting the Highway 101 landscape – before, during or after your Fiesta experience. Summer officially starts on June 21, but the Solana Beach community likes to stay ahead of the game to ensure the best season of the year is kick-started with the best party of the season.

My prescription for a healthy life BY MARK KALINA MD As a doctor, the biggest question I have for my patients is “what does it mean for you to be well?” It is not just the absence of disease that makes a person qualify as well. There is a different sense of being well for every person. It often has very little or nothing to do with the state of our physical being. The biggest impediments to feeling well are the limitations and rules we impose upon ourselves that take away the joy of living. We end up feeling stuck or trapped and this is what keeps us from being truly well. When people come to see me for individual or group consultation, I ask them a few questions. Do you like yourself? Do you like your life? Are you “there” for yourself when things go awry? Are you your own best friend? Do you like your relationships? Do you like who you are in your relationships? Are you proud of yourself? How do you handle the wounds of your past history so they do not creep into your daily life? The answers to these questions tell me much about your true health. Why? Because this tells me how connected you are to yourself, and that reflects how connected you are to your world. And why is connection important to me? Your connection to yourself and others nourishes the core of your being; it is the cornerstone of wellness and basis of life itself. Like it or not, we are all one. If we feel at odds with or estranged from our bodies, minds or support system, we will be unable to tap into joy, love and fun and are more likely to seek refuge in numbing compulsive behaviors. On the other hand, connecting to our life, body, health and mind creates an internal feeling (connection) that creates freedom, energy and general well-being. So, my eight recommendations for being well and returning to health and vibrancy are: (1) Wellness is an individual journey with a personal destination and should not
continued from page 1 questioned whether the ordinance applies only to dogs, or whether other types of animals are also covered by the ban. The council agreed to take out the reference to “family friendly” areas, and also to make the ordinance apply to pets, rather than dogs specifically. But council members said they still believe it is a good idea to ban pets from the tot lot and south lawn of the park. “This does add a layer of safety for a susceptible population that wasn’t there before and there are valid scientific reasons for supporting it,” said Councilman Don Mosier, a physician. “I think the ordinance is a reasonable and balanced approach,” said Mayor Terry Sinnott. The council also voted unanimously to move up the city’s teen curfew to 10 p.m. from its current 11 p.m. to be consistent with neighboring jurisdictions, such as the county of San Diego and cities of Solana
be globally defined. Ask yourself what you need and want. (2) Realize that sometimes “well” may not feel great in the beginning; getting well is a journey that may include crying or yelling or feeling angry or sad as we start out on the adventure of learning to Dr. Mark Kalina care for ourselves. (3) Well is feeling free as opposed to stuck which is limiting, rigid and mechanical. Let yourself out of the box instead of being contained. (4) Be who you are; speak your truth; don’t censor your words to please other people. (5) Love with all your heart – starting with yourself. (6) Find what makes you happy and joyful and do it regularly forever. (7) Use your body to get out of your thinking mind and into the joy of living. (8) Live like you might die tomorrow and don’t have any regrets. This prescription is intentionally NOT very “medical.” Modern medicine is good for acute injuries and illnesses but it does not make us well. We make ourselves well by the way we live and what we believe and the focus of our attention. We have the power to set ourselves free to live fully regardless of our age, medical conditions or circumstances. You can have it all. Mark Kalina is a board certified internal medicine doctor. He has recently opened a new practice on Cedros in Solana Beach based on the above recommendations to help people feel better and reach their own definition of being well. He can be contacted by calling (858) 876-6360. The practice website is www.PandoHealthGroups.com Individual and group appointments are available daily.
Beach and San Diego. The current 11 p.m. curfew has created an “oasis effect,” encouraging minors to come to Del Mar to stay out an extra hour, the report said. “The proposed amendment to change the curfew hours from 11 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Del Mar should result in a reduction of crimes related to minors and allow the City’s Park Ranger and Sheriff Deputies to enforce the curfew laws in a consistent manner with the surrounding jurisdictions,” the staff report said. The third ordinance, also passed unanimously, changes a number of rules related to tents, canopies and barbecues. The main reason for banning charcoal grills, said Park Ranger Adam Chase, is that the city has no safe way to dispose of the hot coals. Children have suffered burns on their feet after walking over hot coals left in bushes in city parks, and people have also started fires by placing hot coals in trash cans. The city considered installing concrete disposal bins, but it was determined
the bins were unattractive and smoke from the containers could prove a nuisance to nearby residents. The new ordinance will allow barbecues with propane grills at all city parks and beaches. “This is a pretty good compromise, still allowing families to have barbecues,” Chase said. The new ordinance also bans camping tents from city parks (tents were already banned from beaches) and canopies larger in size than 10-by-10 feet in both parks and beaches, Chase said. This change is to allow greater visibility for lifeguards and law enforcement, and prevent illegal activity such as alcohol consumption inside tents. Those planning an event such as a wedding can still request an exemption from the rules — including barbecues, larger canopies and temporary permission to serve alcoholic beverages — by obtaining a city permit, Chase said.
continued from page 7 exam will be scored. If students choose not re-test and submit their May 7 exam, Bennett said it will be scored with an incident report attached. The grader would then have a record of what happened that day to understand the context and take that into consideration. That means the grader has flexibility and won’t score the tests on a national curve, “but will individualize the test,” Bennett said. This will be a different test but not a harder one, Grove said, because College Board has multiple versions of the test. “The benefit is you now know how it goes,” he said to the CCA students. “Students did not have the opportunity to showcase what they know,” Bennett said, calling the re-test a “great opportunity for students.” She said she was on the phone immediately with College Board to explain the extenuating circumstances and argue her case. What helped tremendously, she said, were all the “heartfelt” emails from students filled with tears and frustration that she shared with College Board. That, plus the large number of San Dieguito students who sat for the test – 238, triple what most districts have. That got their attention, she said. Torrey Pines issues Of the 238 San Dieguito students who sat for the AP Spanish test May 7, about half were from the northern portion of the district and half from the south. In the north, the students from La Costa Canyon High School and San Dieguito Academy tested at La Costa Canyon where there was classroom space. The students from the south, at Torrey Pines High School and CCA, were tested at the Fairgrounds. About 80 students from TPHS and 40 from CCA gathered together in Bing Crosby Hall, for the first time. In previous years, TPHS students tested on campus in their high quality language lab. “It’s like what you get at a college campus and is a completely different environment [than the Fairgrounds],” Bennett said. She said it is “lovingly cared for” and would run about $45,000 to install at another school. The night before the CCA meeting, Bennett and Grove met with AP Spanish language students, parents and teachers from Torrey
Pines to cover the same issues. But because of the school’s stellar language lab, the TPHS students were reportedly more forceful in expressing their dismay. “You test best in the environment that you learned in,” Bennett said, sympathizing with the TP students and saying the school’s lab is where they have practiced and are comfortable. In contrast, Canyon Crest has no computer lab for foreign language and doesn’t have space that is free from outside noise disruptions, she said. So CCA kids have tested for AP Spanish language at other locations including the Fairgrounds but in smaller rooms. “Canyon Crest kids are used to testing wherever, but Torrey kids are used to doing the written in classrooms and going to the recording room for the recording,” Bennett said. The reason this year the TP and CCA students were combined at the Fairgrounds was primarily a proctor issue. Because the exam requires well-trained proctors who have experience administering the notoriously difficult test, this year’s shortage forced the district to test the TP and CCA students together. “My biggest concern is I want strong proctors there,” Bennett said. “It’s an exam with a lot of detail and oversight to prepare for.” The district has rented buildings at the Fairgrounds for AP testing for 10 years, Bennett said, and it’s generally been fine. Also, the large halls provide adequate space to meet the requirement that the foreign language students, for security reasons, must be seated at least eight feet apart, she said. Taking students off-campus is better for AP testing because teachers and classes don’t need to be moved or interrupted and there are no noisy campus distractions like bells, loudspeakers and outside commotion. Usually. High stakes tests This year Bennett administered more than 7,000 exams and arranged for locations, proctors, equipment and materials that are intended to minimize disruption and stress and maximize student performance and focus. Nevertheless, every year students of Spanish tests have recording problems and technical difficulties, she said. Teachers too were upset. “They invested along with their kids,” she said. “It’s like a team losing on a technicality. “The students not only want to show what they know for college but want to show their teachers how hard their work has paid off.” For the re-test, the TPHS and CCA students will test on familiar territory. TP students will be in the labs and classrooms as in previous years, which will mean displacing at least three teachers for part of the day. But at CCA, ensuring optimal audio conditions makes finding a suitable location more challenging. “We’re looking at a couple of spaces,” Bennett said, noting that the library echoes and the gym has too much activity. The cost to rent the Fairgrounds for the two weeks of AP exams was about $11,000 this year, Bennett said, commenting that the price will go up significantly next year. Whether AP Spanish language is tested next year at the Fairgrounds is to be decided, she said. Much depends on proctor availability and the number of students taking the AP classes, which helps determine about how many will sign up for the AP test. The district may split up TP and CCA students again, she said, depending on the numbers. “We have to book for the greatest number possible based on their enrollment in their classes,” she said. In addition, there are native Spanishspeaking students who take the test. The cost of AP exams this year, set by College Board, was $89, but the price is discounted for low-income students. The district charged an additional $16 per test to cover costs, although Bennett said the Spanish exam “has never ever broken even.” Bennett said she was touched by the many emails from students eloquently describing their frustration over the experience. She said she was particularly moved by those who thanked her for her support and her time to rectify the problem. “This is important high stakes stuff,” she said, sympathetically. “We try to do our very best. Hopefully the re-test will go as smooth as silk.” Marsha Sutton can be reached at SuttComm@san.rr.com.

CCA swim and dive teams finish strong season Congratulating his student-atheletes on a great 2013 season, Canyon Crest Academy Head Swim & Dive Team Coach Nico Kintz said he is pleased with how the team performed during its first year as part of the Palomar League. Building on Coach Nico’s seven pillars of excellence — commitment, consistency, attitude, attendance, respect, team spirit, and time management — CCA Boys Swim & Dive tied with Torrey Pines High School for second place in the league, while CCA Girls Swim & Dive took fourth. At CIF, CCA Girls Swim & Dive won third place and CCA Boys Swim & Dive won fourth place. Honoring team members for their exemplary performance and dedication to the team both inside and outside the pool, Coach Nico named the following individuals as Swimmers/Divers of the Week: for the week of March 18, Eric Li and David Twyman; for the week of March 25, Jolie Rasmussen, Eric Schade, and Spencer Wiggins; for the week of April 15, Leah Buford, John Guess, Carly Rasmussen, Garrett Schmid, and Annabel Tomes; and for the week of April 22, Shelby Buford, Eric Schade, and Annabel Tomes. Highlights of the season included strong performances by team members at the Mt. Carmel Invitational back in March, with the Boys Varsity team earning a second place finish, and the Girls Varsity taking sixth overall. At the Junior Varsity Invitational, CCA Boys took second place. Additionally, numerous records were broken by CCA swimmers and divers during the 2013 season. Swimmer Tracy Chen set new CCA records in the 200 IM and the 100 Fly. Swimmer Jolie Rasmussen established a new CCA record in the 100 Back. Swimmer Annabel Tomes earned new CCA records in the 100 Free (also a new Palomar League record) and the 200 Free, both of which were All-American consideration times. Swimmer Alex Chen set a new CCA record in the 100 Breast. Swim Eric Li earned a new CCA record in the 500 Free. Swimmer Garrett Schmid established new CCA records in the 200 Free, the 200 IM, and the 100 Back. Divers Shelby Buford and Mason Mercer also set new CCA records in the 6-Dive. On top of all the individual records, the CCA Girls Relay team of Tracy Chen, Carly Rasmussen, Jolie Rasmussen, and Annabel Tomes set new records for CCA, the Palomar League, and Division II CIF competition in the 200 Free Relay, and for CCA and CIF Division II the 200 Medley Relay, garnering All-American consideration times for both events. The Boys 400 Free Relay team of John Guess, Eric Schade, Garrett Schmid, and David Twyman also established a new CCA record during the 2013 season.

Mustangs U19 Rugby players cap season with strong performance at Nationals BY TIM PICKWELL Just days after defending their Southern California U19 Boys Rugby title in Fullerton, the Carmel Valley-based San Diego Mustangs travelled to the Moose Rugby Grounds in Indiana, May 16-18, to participate in the Boys High School National Invitational Championship. The Mustangs went 2-1 in the tournament to finish the season with an overall 12-1 record. San Diego allowed the fewest points (20 in three matches) of any of the 24 teams in the national championship field. Unfortunately, their only loss was 17-15 to the Danville (CA) Oaks in the first round. The loss dropped the Mustangs to the consolation bracket of the single elimination tournament, where they proceeded to defeat Northern California power Marin, 290, and the Blues from Kansas City (ranked No. 3 in the nation by Rugby Magazine), 15-3. “Except for the first 10 minutes against Danville [when the Oaks went up, 10-0],” we dominated our opponents,” said Coach Matty Sandoval. “I’m really
Mustangs U19 Rugby captain Drew Gaffney, here running in a match against Marin (CA), helped lead the Carmel Valley-based team to a 2-1 record at the Boys High School National Invitational Championship in Elkhart Indiana, May 16-18. Photo/Susie Talman proud of the fellas. We went up against clubs that have been around for 30 years or more, and who are regular invitees to national tournaments. We showed that the selection committee didn’t make a mistake picking us, and that the Mustangs program belongs amongst the national elite.” In true rugby tradition, after beating each other silly for 60 minutes, the opposing squads gather at midfield after each match for handshakes and an exchange of compliments. Each team nominates two opposing players (forwards and backs) from the other squad as a “Man of the Match,” recognizing their opponents’ strong play in the
game. Senior Drew Gaffney was inspired for all three games throughout the weekend, and opponents named him a “Man of the Match” at forward in all three Mustang contests. The Calbound No. 8 (rugby positions are designated with a number) used speed, toughness, quick-thinking and a loud voice to drive his teammates through the pain and exhaustion of three nearly full-length matches in three days. His singing and jokes also kept the team loose on several lengthy bus and plane rides. “Gaffney has been the heart and soul of this team all year, but he really was big in this tournament,” said Sandoval. “He plays with so much passion, and when you combine that with his skill and athleticism, he’s more than most teams can handle. He put us on his shoulders and carried us whenever we hit a rough patch. He’s equally valuable as a leader off the pitch. A rare kid who will be hugely missed.” There is more to this story.

continued from page 16 he can; when they’re done with the three, they run back to the shore and tag the next person. Each wave is judged closely, and the team members’ highest scoring waves are then averaged together. “It was very close,” said Kyle, who eagerly awaited hearing the results with his teammates. “This year, one of our key surfers was on vacation, so we didn’t know how we’d do.” Fortunately, Torrey Pines came out on top, win-
ning by just one point, narrowly beating the team from Carlsbad. “They’ve only held this competition for two years, and we came in first both years,” explained Kyle. “It felt really good.” As a result, the grand prize of $5,000 was donated to the school’s science and athletic departments. The surf team’s season stretches all year long, and is about to wrap up. After graduation, Kyle is planning on attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to study engineering and, of course, continue to surf. Said Kyle of his time with the Torrey Pines team: “It’s been fun.”

CCA student selected for prestigious program
Law Enforcement Torch Run afoot
Canyon Crest Academy student Meagan Wu, 17, was awarded a full-tuition, room and board scholarship to attend the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation 2013 Summer Seminar Program. She is one of 60 high school juniors chosen nationwide to take part in the two-week program held at the Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The camp is a scholarship program available nationally to artistically gifted high school juniors in public and private schools. It is designed as an art institute offering an intensive visual art studio program that allows each student to gain a stronger foundation of skills and understanding in the visual arts through experiencing college-level drawing and painting classes in a natural setting. Notable artists-inresidence serve as the primary instructors. Trips are planned to draw, paint, and hike Megan Wu in the mountains at the Colorado College Baca campus. A jury of artists in a highly selective process chose the 60 participants from CDs of original work, a written recommendation from a high school art teacher, and personal statement. Meagan has been serious about studying and producing works of art since preschool, while simultaneously growing as an exceptional musician on the cello. Besides her music awards, she has won multiple art awards including the National Youth Art Competition, California State PTA, San Diego County Fair Youth Art Show, California Region of the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, and has had her artwork displayed in the San Diego Art Institute Museum of the Living Artist for three years. Meagan’s artwork consists of work she created in her AP Drawing class, free time, and Envision Visual Arts (EVA) Conservatory program at Canyon Crest Academy under the guidance of Jessica Matthes, who says, “Meagan has been one of our star students in EVA day classes and in Conservatory. She has an extremely high level of skill and creativity and especially excels at painting. I have been lucky enough to have Meagan in several of my classes and she always goes above and beyond in every project.” Meagan especially enjoys drawing human figures, and is inspired by the music she listens to. She focuses on hyperrealism, and some work shows her profound interest in the subject of history. “I always feel content and focused when I pick up a pencil or paintbrush. Art naturally encourages me to observe what lies beyond a superficial expression or subjective experience, and allows me to give
Local agencies to participate in event benefitting Special Olympics
SEE STUDENT, PAGE B22
BY ROB LEDONNE Most everyone knows that the Special Olympics take place every four years, drawing global attention and athletes from all over the world. However, the Special Olympics are an organization that holds events year-round, including a Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR). The Law Enforcement Torch Run is an annual event where San Diego County law enforcement agencies carry the Special Olympics Torch through San Diego cities where it eventually reaches its final destination at the Summer Games in Long Beach. (More than 1,100 athletes from throughout Southern California will participate in the Summer Games on June 8 and 9 at Cal State Long Beach.) The ceremonial lighting of the torch will begin on May 28 at 9:30 a.m. at the Chula Vista Police Department Memorial Wall. After the ceremony, officers will begin the first leg of the run that starts at 10:15 a.m. and continues through Del Mar until the torch is set to rest for the evening. The final leg of the LETR will begin at 6:30 a.m. on May 29 and end with Camp Pendleton Marines running the torch through the base and handing it off to the Orange County Sherriff’s Department. “It’s a county-wide event that incorporates pretty much all law enforcement agencies throughout the area,” explained Kelcie Kopf, the development manager for Special Olympics of Southern
! d l o
California. “Various agencies take certain legs, from San Diego all the way up to Long Beach. One agency passes the torch to the next.” The goal of the run is to raise awareness and funds for the Special Olympics, which provides sports programming for people with intellectual disabilities and, according to Kopf, is an important facet of community life. “Anytime an organization takes an interest in their community, especially individuals in their community who are often marginalized, it strengthens the community as a whole,” said Kopf. “There’s really no downside to participating; it mainly shows residents that law enforcement is more than just parking tickets and drug busts.” Agencies local and national alike (including the San Diego Police Department, the FBI, and the IRS) will all participate in the run, which kicks off at 9:30 a.m. in Chula Vista. The run will move through the Torrey Pines State Beach area and Del Mar around 3 p.m., where it will rest for the night. The next day begins at Camp Pendleton. The race has its roots in Kansas, where it began decades ago and has grown since, branching out to different states across the country, including right here in California and in 48 nations; overall, 142,000 people volunteer their time to the race annually. As a result, it’s become the largest grassroots fundraiser for the Special Olympics all year. Kopf herself moved to the San Diego area from Texas, and starting working with the organization as “a way to give back to community, and it’s been life changing. There was trepidation at first before taking this job, but it’s just opened my

eyes. Our athletes and families who we work with are amazing.” Kopf said she has about 300 law enforcement participants signed up for the race so far, which is on par with recent years, and is still open to having people sign up right up until the day of the race. Says Kopf: “The whole event is a beautiful symbol of what
the Special Olympics are all about.” To donate, call the Special Olympics office at 619283-6100 and pay by credit card or mail cash/check to the office: Special Olympics Southern California San Diego County, 10977 San Diego Mission Road, San Diego, CA 92108. Visit www.sosc.org/ sandiego

Del Mar Hills students experience a taste of Native Californian cooking As the fourth grade classes at Del Mar Hills Academy concluded their Native Californian Social Studies Unit, they had a chance to participate in a cooking class that highlighted ingredients and cooking techniques used by the Native Californian tribes they studied. The class was facilitated by Fernanda Larson, certified nutritionist, culinary instructor and creator of the Cook for Thought Project, which integrates curriculum standards in culinary experiences. The students were divided into “tribes” and asked to brainstorm on how the native tribes developed methods for harvesting, preparing and cooking indigenous foods. They worked together to produce a complete menu of: Cactus Salad with Roasted Pine Nuts; Corn Meal Flat bread; and Prickly Pear Mush with Wild Honey. They also sampled Salmon Jerky and Stinging Nettle Tea. “Cooking is a multi-sensorial activity, and engaging children in the process has an enormous potential to enhance their learning experience. They see, touch, smell and taste a bit of the history they had just learned about. It becomes real and more relevant — and it makes for an unforgettable enrichment opportunity,” says Fernanda. All 39 fourth graders
the best part was practicing team work!” First graders will be next in line, with a class called “School Lunch from the 1800s.’” “Cooking classes teach students not only how to handle and prepare ingredients in a healthy and meaningful manner, but it combines mathematical, scientific and historical/cultural concepts in one hands-on activity,” Fernanda said. “It is such a rich learning experience, and the best part is they get to eat it at the end!” The Cook for Thought Project is offering these amazing learning experiences to all elementary school-age children with two summer camps: Cooking through California’s History, and America, the Delicious! Camps are offered through the Del Mar Union School District, and will be hosted at Torrey Hills Elementary School. For more information and detailed camp descriptions, visit www.cookforthought.com.To register: http://www.dmusd.org/Page/4921

were excited to taste their dishes, and many were very surprised that “it actually tasted good!” Another enthusiastic fourth grader said: “I loved to see how bright pink the prickly pear was, and it was really fun to mash it with a real rock!” As to why cooking classes belong in schools, Mrs. Hemerick, fourth grade teacher at Del Mar Hills Academy, says: “The whole experience brought the stu-
dents’ learning to life. They were able to connect with the people and the history they were learning about. When students have this kind of experience, they have fun learning and they’ll always remember it.” The Cook for Thought Project also presented the class “From Seed to Plate – Cycling through Energy and Measurement,” where third graders practiced their math, science and reading skills while making seed tapes, planting them in the school garden and cooking Carrot Zucchini patties. One third grader said: “Besides eating,

Hanumanity Foundation’s ‘Yoga In The Park’ event to benefit wounded military
Hubert Pilloud and his dog, Bohdi Courtesy photo yoga events, festivals or music events, and they make a donation for entry/participation. The “Yoga for the Wounded Warriors” event will aid those wounded servicemen and women who practiced yoga during part of their physiotherapy at The Naval Medical Hospital but then who may need financial aid to continue their yoga in a studio beyond the hospital. For Pilloud, yoga was a life-changing experience. After retiring from the Swiss Air Force he emigrated to the USA five years ago and began yoga classes to help alleviate back and neck problems caused by the extreme “G” forces he’d endured. “There’s a lot of compression on the spine for fighter pilots,” Pilloud explained. After a few years of yoga he discovered that he had “grown” more than an inch as his spine became uncompressed. Last year he attended yoga classes at the Wunderlust Festival in Lake Tahoe and had a spiritual awakening. “I knew there was something that I had to do but I did not
know what,” recalled Pilloud. During his 10-hour drive back to San Diego, Pilloud gained clarity as the business plan for Hanumanity Foundation played like a movie in his head. The next day he wrote that plan and his organization began to take shape last fall. Pilloud works with a national team of yoga professionals that includes Steve Hubbard, Shari Zollinger, Kelli Harrington, and Michelle Nayeli. In contrast to his former supersonic career, Pilloud’s own classes are Vinyasa inspired, with a slow flow, based on simplicity, efficacy and efficiency in both movement and stillness, seeking proper alignment with the body, mind and spirit. “Through this flow, the mind is calmed and excess energy is directed into constructive channels for a higher quality of life,” said Pilloud. Hanumanity Foundation aims to reach an international audience. “We recognize that our global community is interconnected. Through skillful and meaningful action we seek to take an active role in helping the global community achieve higher levels of consciousness,” Pilloud explained. For the local “Yoga In The Park” class at Del Mar Trails Park attendees need to bring a yoga mat “along with your smile, a warm heart and your inner playfulness,” said Pilloud. Entry is by a donation which is tax deductible. Visit http://www.hanumanity.org/ for event location directions, and information about tax-deductible giving. Sponsorships and corporate matching gift programs are welcome, and individual donations may also be made online.

“SHARP HUMOR!” “SNAP, CRACKLE -Bloomberg.com AND FIZZ” -Variety
West Coast Premiere
BEGINS MAY 28!
La Jolla Cultural Partners
BY DIANE Y. WELCH In recognition of Memorial Day, and to honor the brave men and women who have served — and continue to serve — in the U.S. military, the Carmel Valley-based nonprofit organization Hanumanity Foundation will lead a “Yoga In The Park” class at Del Mar Trails Park. Participation, which is open to all levels, will benefit the “Yoga for the Wounded Warriors” project, and entry is by donation which will help raise funds for the nation’s wounded military. The classes are offered on Saturday, May 25, and Sunday, May 26, from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Ongoing classes are offered each Sunday at the park, at the same time. The yoga session will be guided by Swiss native Hubert Pilloud, an RYT (Registered Yoga Teacher) and former F/A18 fighter pilot and instructor. “This is my tribute and a way to thank to these men and women of the past who made the ultimate sacrifice,” he said. Hanumanity Foundation is a Karma Yoga organization whose vision is to help individuals, groups, and communities achieve their full potential by promoting and making yoga available in all its forms. Karma Yoga is defined as “selfless, meaningful, conscious action that serves humanity and nature,” noted Pilloud. The foundation’s name is a fusion of two words: “Hanuman” a Hindu religious icon that represents the brave, strong, compassionate, skillful warriors devoted to serving those in need, and “Humanity” as a demonstration of love, kindness and social intelligence, according to Pilloud. Its mission reflects these dual pillars of emphasis. “We want to promote and participate in local, national and international humanitarian efforts, through selfless, skillful actions,” Pilloud said. “By reaching and serving people, we are creating more interconnections among them, inspiring more awareness on their personal health and wellbeing, strengthening their sense of community and encouraging harmony and oneness within our inner and outer natures.” The foundation raises funds when people attend its

Show summary: “A few days after the death of little known painter Vincent Van Gogh, rumors are flying in Paris. Some say he was a penniless madman, a frequenter of prostitutes, a derelict and soon to be forgotten artist of trifling quality. Others denounce him as a wayward priest and a foreigner. Many whisper he took his own life in a moment of insanity. His brother Theo, Vincent’s confidante and lifelong supporter, is enraged.” For more information and tickets, visit http://www.northcoastrep.org/season/offnights. html

Summer programs offered at San Elijo Lagoon Summer is a time of comfortable, warm evenings at San Elijo Lagoon, and a brilliant season in which to explore one of San Diego’s largest estuarine reserves. Listen for the “voice of the chaparral,” the wrentit, which makes a sound sometimes described as a bouncing ball. Late-blooming plants include the tarplant, with its small yellow-orange flowers that attract native insects in search of nectar. Mule deer and their fawns might be seen east in the reserve. The mallards and their chicks are much more conspicuous and are often seen at the nature center. Free, public programs will occur in the serene environment of San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve. This county and state regional park protects nearly 1,000 acres of habitat that hosts more than 700 species of plants and animals, many of them sensitive or endangered. Eight trails wind through diverse vistas including salt marsh, riparian, and coastal sage scrub habitats. From morning and evening guided walks, to the gala, and restoration events, there’s something for everyone. All walks are free. Registration is required for Lagoon Platoon. The Conservancy’s biennial gala is a ticketed event; all are welcome. For more information on all the events offered, visit the conservancy’s website at www. SanElijo.org or call (760) 436-3944.

Top mountain gorilla eco-tourism expert to speak at Solana Beach event Local Africa travel specialist Aardvark Safaris present mountain gorilla expert Praveen Moman for a special event on May 30. Few animals have sparked the imagination of man as much as the critically endangered gorilla, the largest of the living primates. It is a rare privilege to hear Praveen speak about the role of eco-tourism in saving these magical creatures. Kim Livingstone, Lead Keeper for the Great Apes at the San Diego Zoo who will be in attendance, says “Many years ago I had the opportunity to visit the mountain gorillas in Rwanda. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my lifetime.” Praveen, an engaging speaker, grew up on safari in Uganda under the big African sky. Under his guiding vision, tourism in Uganda and Rwanda were revived creating a unique eco-tour-
ism model centered around the threatened gorilla and chimpanzee populations of the western rift valley. “Watching these animals interact in their family groups, the care of their young, the impish juveniles and wise silverbacks is an extraordinary experience with an all too human dimension that stirs the soul,” says Praveen who will be bringing his amazing images of the apes to accompany his presentation. Praveen, who has won numerous awards for his efforts, receives high praise from John Spence, president of Aardvark Safaris: “Praveen is a legend in the safari industry. He pioneered gorilla tracking in Uganda and Rwanda and his efforts have meant as much to the survival and growth of the species as Dian Fossey’s decades ear-
lier.” Accompanied by extraordinary pictures, Praveen will discuss the efforts being made to conserve the mountain gorillas and the grassroots methods that engage and empower local communities as partners in protecting the great apes. The presentation, which is open to the public by RSVP only to erin@aardvarksafaris. com or 858-523-9000, will be held at the David Allen Collection, 241 S. Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach at 6 p.m.

Hildy Johnson gets story and guy in Playhouseâ€™s new â€˜His Girl Fridayâ€™ BY DIANA SAENGER The 1940s was a time when women often needed to work and had to make a choice between home and career. It made for the perfect conflict in the newsroom, too. Jenn Lyon (Broadwayâ€™s â€œShipwreck,â€? â€œSalvageâ€?) takes on the role of Hildy, a hard-core newswoman who will stop at nothing to get the story in â€œHis Girl Friday,â€? opening the 2013/2014 Season at the La Jolla Playhouse on May 28. Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley directs the production, adapted by John Guare (â€œSix Degrees of Separationâ€?) from the Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur play, â€œThe Front Page,â€? and the Columbia Picturesâ€™ film, â€œHis Girl Friday,â€? starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell. â€œHildy is such a dynamite role and a dream role for any actress,â€? Lyon said. â€œTo be the smartest and toughest one in the room, the most compassionate, and do physical comedy and wear a fantastic hat, what more could you ask for?â€? Lyon said she appreciates how Guare blended the work of two playwrights with that of the screenwriter. â€œItâ€™s a wonderful working hybrid of what worked in

A major story is brewing in a 1939 Chicago pressroom when ace reporter Hildy Johnson (Jenn Lyon) stops by for one last visit before leaving the newspaper game for good. But when her former editor and ex-husband entices her with the promise of the scoop that could break the story, the lure of fame and rekindled romance prove more than she can resist. COURTESY

Outdoor summer Shakespeare Festival returns to Globe with three classics BY DIANA SAENGER Summer at the Old Globe is one of the most demanding yet dynamic times of the year for both the theatergoers and the creative artists behind the productions. In addition to the plays in the Old Globe and the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatres, comes the 2013 Shakespeare Festival performed under the stars in repertory at the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, June 2–Sept. 29. This year will be the last under festival artistic director Adrian Noble, who has been at the helm since 2010. Jay Whittaker, who has appeared off Broadway and in many Shakespearean productions, and who received the San Diego Theatre Critics Circle Craig Noel Award, will return to the festival in several roles. He said he enjoys Shakespeare because the characters can be played in many different ways. “You can never proclaim the death of Shakespeare because there’s always something new to discover,” he said. “I just played Angelo in ‘Measure for Measure’ and the character was 100 percent different than when I played him eight years ago. That’s due to a different director and actors, but mostly because as we age, we begin to see things in a different way because we have more life experience.” Whittaker will play Oberon and Theseus in the comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” directed by Ian Talbot, and Guildenstern in the farce, “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead,” directed by Noble. “Oberon is the loose and connected-to-the-Earth King of the Fairies. Theseus is the posh and uptight King of Athens. The two characters complement each other in that they both come in trying to control their women in a misogynistic way. Ian (the director) seems to be adding some contrast to the story with some darker and more tragic elements.” Whittaker describes Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as “two characters who play in ‘Hamlet,’ and what happens to them when they’re not on stage.” The playwright, Tom Stoppard, puts them in this

Then they get thrust into a theme from ‘Hamlet.’ It’s very quick and very witty.” Rounding out the festival will be the timeless tale of mercy, justice, generosity and greed, “The Merchant of Venice,” also directed by Noble. According to co-work-
ers, Noble leaves a wealth of exemplary work and a vast legacy to be remembered and embraced at the Old Globe. “He brought in a style of show and created a company he trained to do his very specific style — and he did it in repertory with all three shows happening at the same time,” Whittaker said. “They all had continuity at the same time because it was the same cast as well.”

Adapted PE Softball Tournament BY KAREN BILLING The seventh annual Adapted PE Softball Tournament was held at Earl Warren Middle School on May 18, this year involving students not only from the San Dieguito Union High School District but also neighboring Del Mar Union and Solana Beach school districts. The tournament is a chance to give adapted PE students their own day to shine — fielding, hitting and running the bases with help from their ”Buddies,” regular-education students who volunteer their time to help students with challenges at Carmel Valley and Earl Warren middle schools. “No one chooses to have a challenge but we meet our challenges head on,” said Kasey Galik, San Dieguito’s adapted PE teacher. “We’re handi-capable.” The students had a dance party on the blacktop and warmed up before playing softball where every player got a chance to hit and happily run the bases. Every player received a medal during an awards ceremony held at the end of the tournament. PHOTOS/KAREN BILLING

Beth Am Gesher Preschool wild about Zoozeum
ongregation Beth Am’s Gesher preschool class held its 11th annual Zoozeum on May 8, with art, animals and cuteness on display. The youngsters spent the last four months on creating a “spectacular showcase” of animals, a project that enriched them culturally, scientifically, geographically and brought families together as the young students worked with their parents to create their giant paper mache lion, giraffe or zebra. The students learned the different characteristics of animals and investigated their habitats. They did creative writing projects and completed art pieces of all different styles to reflect their animal, from Marc Chagall “stained glass” to construction paper cubism in the style of Pablo Picasso. Each student, dressed in a t-shirt they decorated, gave a memorized presentation about their animal which included fun facts like pandas are born the size of a stick of butter; yaks sleep standing up; and ostriches have the smallest brain and forget easily. Denise Neifeld, preschool director, said, “We set the standards high and they blow us away. When they go to kindergarten next year, they are going to lead the pack.” — Karen Billing
