San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department’s Encinitas station are asking for assistance from the public to help identify and locate an unknown suspect wanted for an assault with a deadly weapon that occurred at Jimmy O’s Bar in Del Mar. On the evening of July 18, 22-year-old Tory Henry was at Jimmy O’s bar, located at 225 16th Street in Del Mar. At about midnight Henry felt a sharp pain in his lower back and fell to the ground. He got up and continued walking through the bar. He was told, by other patrons, that he was bleeding and left the bar to go home. At about 9 a.m., the following morning, Tory Henry noticed that the wound on his back was still bleeding. The victim went to a hospital for treatment of a stab wound. Investigators in this case are also asking anyone who witnessed the incident to please call the Encinitas Sheriff’s station. Anyone with information on the identity and/or location of the suspect should call the Encinitas Sheriff’s Station at (760) 966-3500 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.

Suspected drug traffickers caught after chase BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Two suspected drug traffickers in a small motorboat full of marijuana led federal agents on an ocean chase from the La Jolla area to near the Orange County line early Aug. 6 before being captured. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in a patrol aircraft spotted the skiff traveling to the north without required navigational lights about 12:45 a.m., then noticed that it was loaded with numerous suspicious-looking bales, CBP spokesman Ralph DeSio said. The personnel alerted a federal interceptor boat patrolling in the area about the possible in-progress smuggling run, and the government vessel caught up to the suspects near Del Mar, he said. The men aboard the skiff fled from the officers along the northern reaches of the San Diego County coast until the agents managed to stop them about 3:30 p.m., roughly 12 See CHASE, page 19

More than $5 million in artwork and jewelry stolen from Rancho Santa Fe home Sometime between 9 p.m. on June 17 and 6 a.m. on June 18, unknown suspects entered a home in Rancho Santa Fe and stole jewelry, paintings and other pieces of artwork valued in excess of $5 million, according to detectives. San Diego County Crime Stoppers and investigators from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department’s Encinitas station are asking for assistance from the public to help identify and locate the suspects wanted in connection with the burglary. There were 11 paintings from various artists, one Monet print and one Pissarro print stolen, all valued at more than $1 million, as well as four very elaborate gold, tourmaline, diamond, cabochon, citrine necklace and bracelet sets valued at approximately $100,000 per set. Also stolen were Chinese sculptures, but the majority of the artwork taken were sculptures by Andreas von Zadora Gerlof. A total of 20 pieces were stolen, valued at more than $3 million.

BY KAREN BILLING For the second year in a row deaths due to suicide and prescription drug overdoses were at record highs in San Diego County in 2012, according to a report released by the San Diego County Medical Examiner on July 23. The county recorded a record number of suicides, 413, and a suicide rate that rose for the sixth year in a row. The suicide rate is 13.1 per 100,000 people — the highest the county has ever recorded was in 1993 when the suicide rate was 14.5. The disturbing trend of prescription drug-related deaths also continued to rise, from 267 in 2011 to 269 in 2012. “Our office investigates every non-natural death in San Diego and, tragically, many of these deaths are preventable,” Chief Deputy Medical Examiner Dr. Jonathan Lucas said in a statement. “The report reveals some of the serious issues and behaviors affecting San Diego County residents and visitors.” Excluding alcohol, methamphetamine is still the number one cause of drug-related deaths for the population as a whole. Meth was linked to 142 deaths in 2012 and was the most common substance in accidental overdose deaths between ages 40 and 69 years old. The most common drug in accidental overdoses in people ages 20 to 29 is heroin, a drug that has maintained a yearly increase since 2007.

Local attorney wins $1.99 million settlement from city for clients BY JOE TASH Rancho Santa Fe attorney Steven McKinley has won a $1.99 million settlement for his clients, who alleged in a lawsuit that the city of San Diego’s redevelopment agency acted improperly when it sought to obtain their downtown property. The settlement, which was finalized July 24 when signed by Mayor Bob Filner, ends a legal saga dating back to 2004. At that time, the San Diego Redevelopment Agency — which is now dissolved — told La Jollans Chris and Margaret LaFornara that it wanted to buy their property at 14th Street and Market in the East Village, as part of a project to build a mixed-use residential and commercial development over a full city block. Rather than pursue the acquisition, however, the redevelopment agency put its efforts on hold for about five years, leaving a cloud over the property and preventing the LaFornaras from selling to anyone else, said McKinley. In 2011, the LaFornaras lost the property to foreclosure, and the redevelopment agency then bought the property from the bank at a reduced price, McKinley said. “So they never took my client’s property. They negotiated with my client in bad faith and kept him strung out for six years until he lost the property to foreclosure,” McKinley said. The two-phase trial began last December before Superior Court Judge William Nevitt. In March, Nevitt issued a tentative ruling siding with the LaFornaras. In a tentative ruling, Nevitt wrote that the redevelopment agency’s behavior “constitutes coercive precondemnation tactics and unreasonable precondemnation conduct.” A second phase of the trial to determine damages to be paid to the plaintiffs was set for this October, but instead, the city and the LaFornaras agreed to the $1.99 million settlement, McKinley said. Of that amount, $647,000 is for See ATTORNEY, page 10

Sycamore Ridge’s founding principal Emily Morris resigns

Security fencing construction ongoing at Del Mar Heights School Work is underway this summer on new security fencing at Del Mar Heights School. According to Randy Wheaton, the Del Mar Union School District’s director of maintenance, the construction of the new fence, gates and new ADA access at the front of the school will be ready for the first day of school on Aug. 26. “We’re very happy that we’re able to take care of that,” Wheaton said at the July 24 Del Mar school board meeting. “It will provide the Heights with stepped up security, an overall enhancement of the school site and a better platform for students to enter and exit.” — Karen Billing

Gas leak fixed at shopping mall BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A construction crew accidentally ruptured a naturalgas line at a Carmel Valley shopping mall Aug. 2, forcing the evacuation of three commercial buildings for about 90 minutes. The non-injury mishap at Del Mar Highlands Town Center, located in the 12900 block of El Camino Real, was reported shortly after 9:30 a.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department. Utility crews had the leak under control by shortly after 11 a.m., said Gina Jacobs, a spokeswoman for San Diego Gas & Electric.

BY KAREN BILLING Sycamore Ridge School Principal Emily Morris has made the decision to resign her position effective Aug. 5. Morris’ decision to leave came after “great thought and consideration” over her father’s critical health condition and her commitment to her family. “I hope that my efforts as your principal will leave a legacy on the level of excellence at Sycamore. It is due to the fantastic efforts of our professional learning community and our collective belief in the adage that ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ that Sycamore has truly become a special place for learning,” Morris wrote in a letter to the school community. “Without the total effort and devotion of everyone I would not be able to say farewell to all of you with great pride in all that we have accomplished.” Morris has been with the Del Mar Union School District for 19 of her 26 years in education and served the last eight years as principal of Sycamore Ridge, presiding over the school

Emily Morris when it opened as a new district campus. Morris wrote that it felt like it was only yesterday that she was given the daunting responsibility of opening the new school and bringing staff, students and families together for the first time. “From that first day on, I have loved every day,” Morris wrote. Morris said that she will be involved in ensuring a positive start to the new school year on Aug. 26 and in a smooth transition for the new principal. “I am confident in mind and heart. Our Stallion community will continue to thrive,” Morris wrote.

Presentation in Del Mar to highlight how domestic violence survivors ‘Leap to Success’ BY KRISTINA HOUCK Ruth Batton was taken to a secluded area in Kansas City, Mo., and shot at several times. The mother of two had been in a loving relationship for four years before her boyfriend became physically and emotionally abusive. “He took me up into the mountains and would tell me he could kill me out there and they wouldn’t find me until spring,” Batton, 58, said. Because of the empowerment and leadership training she received through Leap to Success, Batton now speaks about her experience with domestic violence to encourage other women to seek help. Representatives from the organization will share how Leap to Success is helping victims like Batton during a presentation Aug. 19 at the Del Mar Community Building. “I’m a survivor,” Batton said. “Any woman that comes out has to be strong. I’ve had to be strong to even live through it. But you don’t realize that. At the time, you feel like nothing because that’s what you hear. Leap to Success helped me dig inside me and pull me back out.” Through Leap to Success’ Transformation Leadership program, Batton learned how to speak about her experience. “At the beginning, I was terrified,” said Batton, a San Diego native. “I felt shame that I even went through such a thing. I felt weak because I didn’t get out of it sooner. A lot of emotions came through. “Now I can speak of it with power. This is what I’ve been through; this is not me. It doesn’t define me.” The Transformation Leadership program helped Batton build confidence and public speaking skills. The program also helped with her job search and interview preparation. “I learned that I was worthy and that I was somebody,” Batton said. “We had a beautiful time building ourselves back up and learning to love ourselves. We had other women, also in the same boat that we were in, so we weren’t alone.” Leap to Success launched in 2008. Founder Dana Bristol-Smith noticed women who gained public speaking skills through her company Speak for Success were often promoted at their jobs. “That led me to work with domestic violence survivors

— women who have lost their voice, and as a result, lost their way in life,” said BristolSmith, who lives in Oceanside. In partnership with the San Diego Family Justice Center and YWCA of San Diego County, Bristol-Smith tested the professional development program she designed with domestic violence survivors in 2008. Fewer than 10 people participated in the pilot program. “We saw that there was a huge need for this kind of program for women who were rebuilding their lives,” Bristol-Smith said. “I was incredibly amazed how wonderfully well the women did who went through the program. It not only changed how they felt abut themselves, but it really changed their whole lives.” Today, Leap to Success provides support and training to more than 100 women per year through its six-week Leap to Confidence program and yearlong Transformation Leadership

program. With the support and skills she gained from the program, Batton now works as a caregiver and is a few classes away from earning her master’s degree in behavioral science. She has opened her home to other victims of domestic violence and is caring for four children. Batton hopes to one day open a shelter for women who have been affected by domestic violence. “Leap to Success is important because women that have taken the step to leave a domestic violence situation are very fragile and they need support,” Batton said. “A woman without support is a woman that will possibly fail. If she fails, she’ll end up going back.” Bristol-Smith and Lauraine Brekke-Esparza, former Del Mar city manager and Leap to Success board member, will lead the presentation from 10 a.m. -11:30 a.m. on Aug. 19 at the Del Mar Community Building, located at 225 9th St., Del Mar. To register for the event, call 858-792-7565. For more information about Leap to Success, visit

Nazi hunter speaks on the continuing importance of putting Nazi war criminals on trial BY JOE TASH Efraim Zuroff, perhaps the world’s foremost Nazi hunter, said he’s often asked why he continues to vigorously pursue Nazi war criminals nearly 70 years after the end of World War II. “The passage of time in no way diminishes the guilt of the killers,” said Zuroff. “Every one of the victims deserves that an effort be made to find their killers.” Zuroff lectured about his career as a Nazi hunter and current efforts to track down elusive Nazi war criminals at a July 30 event sponsored by the Chabad Jewish Center of Rancho Santa Fe. The lecture and reception were held at the home of Rancho Santa Fe residents Andrew and Diana Benedek. Even though the suspects are in their late ‘80s and ‘90s and many are in poor health, Zuroff said it is still important to put them on trial for their alleged crimes, both as a means of recognizing the suffering of their victims and to counter deniers of the Holocaust, when Nazis and their collaborators in Europe systematically killed 6 million Jews, along with gypsies and political opponents. “These are the last people on Earth who deserve sympathy,” said Zuroff. “They showed no sympathy for their victims, innocent men, women and children.” Zuroff is director of the Israel office of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a global Jewish human rights organization that fights anti-Semitism and provides education about the Holocaust. In late July, the group rolled out its latest effort to track down Nazi war criminals who have escaped trial and punishment. “Wanted” posters were put up in Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne as part of a campaign called “Late. But not too late! Operation Last Chance II.” The campaign offers rewards of up to $33,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Nazi war criminals. Zuroff, who signed copies of his book, “Operation Last Chance: One Man’s Quest to Bring Nazi Criminals to Justice,” after his talk, said he and his colleagues believe there are still

Guest speaker Efraim Zuroff with Rabbi Levi Raskin. Photo/Jon Clark several hundred former Nazis living who should be tried for their crimes. “We need financial help and for people to work politically to try to put pressure on countries like Hungary,” he said. (Last month, thanks in part to Zuroff’s efforts, Hungary charged 98-year-old Laszlo Csatary with Nazi war crimes. He was placed under house arrest and is awaiting trail.) During his talk, Zuroff said that over his 30-plus-year career as a Nazi hunter, the hardest part has not been to find the perpetrators, but to convince governments to put the suspects on trial. Many countries lack the political will to carry out the trials, he said. Some notorious Nazis eluded capture and died without ever being held accountable for their crimes, Zuroff said, giving the example of Josef Mengele, a Nazi doctor infamous for conducting medical experiments on Jews in the concentration camps. Mengele, dubbed “the Angel of Death” for his grisly experiments, escaped after the war to Brazil, where he died swimming in the ocean in 1979. Zuroff said it was a tragedy that Mengele was not brought to justice. One of the most important war criminals whom Zuroff helped catch was Dinko Sakic, commandant of the Jasenovac concentration camp in what is now Croatia. Researchers believe as many as 100,000 Jews, gypsies, Serbs and other opponents of the fascist regime were murdered at Jasenovac between 1941 and 1945. Sakic was tracked down to Argentina, where he had lived for 50 years. He told an interviewer, “You don’t understand the problem with Jasenovac. They didn’t let us finish the job,” according to Zuroff. At the time of Sakic’s arrest and trial in the late 1990s, he was considered a hero by some Croatians because of his nationalist stance, Zuroff said. However, after being extradited to Croatia, he was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison, where he died in 2008. Zuroff recalled a case in which he got a tip about a woman living in Vienna who had reportedly been a guard at a Ravensbruck, a concentration camp for women in Germany, and at another camp in Poland. Among her duties had been taking prisoners to the gas chambers, and guarding them so they couldn’t escape. After a successful effort to convince Austrian authorities to open an investigation, Zuroff said, the woman died before she could be brought to trial. “I’m the only Jew in the world who prays for the health of Nazi war criminals,” he said, at least the ones who are being brought to trial. Rabbi Levi Raskin, of the Chabad Jewish Center of Rancho Santa Fe, said events such as the Zuroff lecture help raise awareness of important issues and also provide a social forum. “Our message is that the way to make sure this [the Holocaust] doesn’t happen again is to do good,” Raskin said.

New pet service combines ‘professional, nurturing care with state-of-the-art technology’ Wag West, a professional pet service that offers customers free GPS tracking via a smart phone app, launched last month in the North County Coastal area. Wag West owner, Adam Zucker, a Del Mar resident, differentiates himself from competitors not only with the GPS technology, but also by offering a convenient online scheduling and billing service. In addition, customers receive an email exactly at the time their pet’s walk begins and ends. After carefully evaluating the industry, Zucker, a former New York City restaurateur and San Diego sales manager, began setting the stage for what is now a professional, comprehensive pet service, including dog walking at beaches, parks or local neighborhoods, pet sitting, dog training, cat visits and even a pet taxi service. “Since the pet care industry is largely unregulated and there are no required professional standards, virtually anyone can do it,� says Zucker, who left a high paying corporate job to follow his passion. Adding that he is fully licensed, bonded and insured, he says he knew he was taking a risk. “I knew I had to differentiate myself if I was going to be successful. I definitely possess the business skills that exceed most of my competitors, so that made me a little more confident,� he says. “I made sure I did things right by getting a full background security check by the San Diego Sheriff’s Office and a first aid certification, which helps customers feel more confident.� Clients who sign up for a Wag West dog walking plan can expect Zucker, or one of his specially trained walkers, to enter their home where a QR code (usually placed on the fridge) gets scanned.

A lifelong dog lover, Zucker says he would take care of pets on the side, but started getting more referrals from friends who said he was the only one they trusted with their dog. “I knew I was onto something, so I made the decision to turn my ‘hobby’ into a profession,� he says. “In addition, I carefully select my dog walkers. They must be animal lovers and have experience with pets, but they also must have a great work ethic, pass a background check, and be serviceoriented and reliable. Having hired and trained hundreds of managers over my professional career, I feel confident that our staff will be the best in the industry.� Zucker was born and raised in Manhattan, and moved to San Diego close to 15 years ago. He is a lifelong dog owner of a number of breeds, including Viszlas, mixed breeds, Shih Tzus, and Bulldogs.

Accomplished Cathedral Catholic graduate’s latest book signing event also benefits children

L-R: David, Maria, James and Michael Morris. Photo/ Diane Welch. (Right) “Water Tower” by James Morris. community organizer/volunteer. Voracious reading – “My room is wall to wall books,” he said – nurtured Morris’s talent for storytelling and lyric writing. Eager to share this talent, he has created a writing workshop – Words Create Worlds – for teens and donated his books to local schools in the Poway School District where they have “embraced his book,” said Maria Morris, who serves as her son’s top cheerleader and publicity agent. A singer/songwriter, Morris’s musical compositions have been recorded onto CD and last year he was a nominee for the San Diego Music Awards. His latest CD – Catch Fire – is now available, along with Speed of Dark, Three Part Plan, and Fall. Initially starting with piano, Morris then taught himself to play guitar at age 13, he said, and for the past three years has played gigs at local coffee shops, on the radio, and at local fundraising events.

“James is a great songwriter,” said producer/ composer Gardner Cole about Morris’s abilities. “There’s a craft to writing and he’s got it.” Now working on book three of his action-packed dystopic trilogy, Morris said there is already interest from a movie company to make the Three Kingdom Series into a major motion picture, although as talks have just been initiated, “it’s too early to go into any details,” he said. The world of the three warring nations that Morris

has created in his novels introduces the reader to a 15-year-old protagonist, Sam Cutter, who despite his awkwardness is brave and determined to “stand up to powers far beyond the ordinary, whether they be good or evil.” A fast-paced and actionpacked adventure, Water Tower has already earned praise from Jeff Edward, author of The Seventh Angel, who noted, “James Morris combines the world-building ingenuity of Philip K. Dick with a raw-edged creativity that I’ve never seen in such a young author. Remember this kid’s name because you’re going to be asking for his autograph.” As for Maria Morris, she has high praise for her teenage son’s social responsibility and philanthropy. “James is a wonderful role model for other kids and teens, and I’m so proud of him,” she said.

BY DIANE Y. WELCH James Morris is a young man on a mission and with his enthusiasm and energy the future looks promising as he starts to makes his mark in the world. While Morris, 18, jokes that he “needs to find a moment of sleep,” his path forward is one of serious intent as he weaves his many talents into a fabric composed of literature, music and philanthropy. On Sunday afternoon, Aug. 4, Morris, with his supportive mom, Maria, appeared at his book launch at San Diego’s Mysterious Galaxy, a genre bookstore specializing in science fiction, mystery, fantasy, and horror. Morris not only signed his latest novel, “Water Tower,” but also entertained those present with a set of his self-composed music inspired by the book. Awareness was also raised for the foundation Earn Your Wings that Morris founded last year. It’s mission is to help keep kids safe. Attendees were encouraged to “open up their hearts” to purchase Morris’s book, plus one of their choice for donation to the Chadwick Center at Rady Children’s Hospital, where Morris also volunteers. The book signing event was on the heels of the official release of Water Tower at Comic Con last month. The novel is a sequel to Sky Bound (released October 2012) and is book two in the Young Adult, Science Fiction Three Kingdom’s Trilogy, self-published by Morris through Red Plate Publishing. Morris recently graduated from Cathedral Catholic High School and is heading to study Audio Engineering Technology at Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business at Belmont University in Nashville. He gives credit to several of his high school teachers and staff who made a difference in him forging this path forward: Tim Foley, former music teacher; Dawn Brannman, teacher and Director of Community Service Programs; and Dean Marlena Conroy, whose support made it possible for Morris to balance being a student, music artist, author and

To Your Health: Back to School BY DR. DANIA LINDENBERG, SCRIPPS HEALTH Are your kids ready to go back to school? Get them off to a good start by helping them stay safe and healthy on campus and in the classroom with these 10 tips. 1. Get a Check-Up Before the school year starts, schedule a physical exam with your child’s doctor to check their health and discuss any concerns such as allergies or nutrition. Give kids the chance to have some “private time� with the doctor as well to discuss topics they may not feel comfortable talking about in front of parents. 2. Keep Immunizations Current Under the California School Immunization Law, children are required to receive certain immunizations in order to attend public and private elementary and secondary schools, child care centers and other educational programs. Immunizations required to attend kindergarten include polio, DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), hepatitis B, and varicella (chicken pox). All students entering seventh grade will also need proof of an adolescent pertussis (whooping cough) booster immunization (Tdap) in order to begin school. 3. Update Medical Information Let the school know of any medications your child takes both at home and at school, as well as any medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma, allergies or psychological issues. Provide contact information for your pediatrician along with medical emergency instructions. 4. Review Safety Rules Remind children not to talk to strangers and never to get into a stranger’s car, no matter what the circumstances. Choose a “code word� that only you, your children and trusted friends and family members know in case someone else has to pick them up, and instruct your children never to trust anyone who doesn’t know the code word. Teach your kids their phone number and address. Instruct kids to find a parent, teacher or other trusted adult immediately if they don’t feel safe. 5. Establish Emergency Procedures Familiarize your family with the school’s emergency procedures, and provide current contact information for parents and other relatives. Decide on a meeting point near the school where you can meet your child in case of emergency if you cannot reach him or her by telephone. If your child is old enough to use a cell phone, it may be a good idea to provide one that is reserved only for urgent situations. 6. Make Helmets a Must Does your child ride a bike to school? Helmet use can reduce the risk of head injury by up to 85 percent. Choose a helmet that meets federal safety standards and fits correctly. According to the National Safety Council, a helmet should fit low and snug across the forehead; if you look up and can’t see the helmet, it is too far back. 7. Avoid Backpack Overload A backpack that is too heavy or worn incorrectly can strain a child’s neck or back and may cause injury. Backpacks should be lightweight with two wide, well-padded shoulder straps, a padded back and a waist strap. Pull both straps tightly enough so that the pack fits snugly against the back but doesn’t pull on the shoulders. Distribute the weight of items within the pack evenly on both sides, and keep it light; the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that backpacks not exceed 10 to 20 percent of the child’s weight. Consider a rolling backpack if allowed by the school. 8. Stand Up to Bullying Bullying is a serious problem, yet many victims don’t speak up for fear or ridicule or retaliation. If you suspect your child is a victim of bullying, encourage him or her to tell you what is going on. Ask questions and offer support

and comfort. Controlling your own emotions can make it easier for your child to open up to you about what he or she needs to feel safe. Talk to teachers and administrators about the situation. 9. Set Reasonable Schedules Sports and extra-curricular activities help kids learn skills, socialize, and have fun, but too much of a good thing can become stressful and ultimately negate the benefits. Let kids choose what they want to participate in and change or drop activities that aren’t enjoyable or become too demanding. Allow for unscheduled time to rest and relax at home with the family. 10. Keep Talking With everyone on busy schedules, it can be difficult to find time to sit and talk with your kids. Make a point of asking your children about their day every afternoon or evening. Give them your full attention and let them know you are interested in their lives. Not only does this let your kids know you care, it can help open the door to conversations about problems or concerns.

SUICIDE continued from page 1 Enforcement Agency (DEA), said there is a link between prescription drugs and the increase in heroin deaths. “When people have an inability to get access to painkillers, they are turning to heroin as a substitute. We’re seeing that everywhere,” Lenox said. Lenox said when users are unable to access painkillers, they use the cheaper illegal drug heroin and they often do not know the purity of the drug or how much to take and they overdose After cocaine, prescription drugs diazepam (brand name Valium), methadone, oxycodone, hydrocodone and diphenhydramine (brand name Benadryl, Sominex) were among the top 10 drugs in overdose deaths. Alprazolam (brand name Xanax) was among the top three most com-

mon drug/medications found in those under age 40 — it had a sudden increase in frequency in 2011 that remained common in 2012, and attributed to 55 deaths. Lenox said the increase in prescription drug deaths is often a result of people taking pills in combination with each other, with alcohol or with other illegal drugs. “It is a priority for the DEA right now,” Lenox said. “We’re focused on trying to get people aware of the dangers that these drugs cause and, hopefully, educate them that these drugs are designed for a specific medical use, not for recreational use… They’re not a safe drug. There’s a misconception that because they’re prescribed by a doctor that they’re safer than illegal drugs.” Lenox said people get their hands on the drugs through medicine cabinets or “doctor shopping” (getting multiple prescriptions from multiple doctors) or

taking advantage of the proximity to Mexico to walk across the border and purchase pills for either personal use or to sell them. Diazepam and morphine also saw larger increases, according to the report. There were no deaths related to “bath salts” or ecstasy in 2012. Suicides by firearm accounts for the most common method (148) and suicides by hanging or asphyxia increased to 118. As in previous years, the rate of suicide was highest among men 85 years and older. The highest number of suicides were in the 45-54 age range with 92, 69 of them males. Nine suicides were recorded in the 15-19 age group and three in the 1014 age group. “It’s just a really sad and unfortunate thing,” said Jimm Greer, the founder of the San Diego non-profit initiative You Matter To Me (UMTR2ME). “In the last few years more people are talking about suicide and getting people the support they need. Hopefully that will start a downward trend.” Greer has a unique perspective — he’s someone who has found a successful life through an unsuccessful suicide, attempting to hang himself at age 18. Now 44, Greer started UMTR2ME a year ago as a way to provide support, hope and motivation for people who are struggling with mental illness, depression and thoughts of suicide. “I realized I needed to turn around and move back into the darkness, that I couldn’t survive a suicide attempt and know what I know and not be helping

ATTORNEY continued from page 2 attorney fees. In essence, McKinley said the redevelopment agency announced it sought to acquire the LaFornaras’ property, then failed to move forward, causing the property to lose value. One potential buyer was willing to pay $3.4 million for the property, but backed off after learning of the redevelopment agency’s plans, McKinley said. The agency did offer the LaFornaras $1.2 million for the property in 2010, which, according to court documents, was less than its value as determined by the agency’s own appraisal. In his written ruling, the judge said the agency had made a “lowball offer” intended to “compel or induce an agreement on the price to

people,” Greer said. “I was moving in the wrong direction and that would’ve been selfish. I thought, ‘Let’s go this way, grab a couple people and walk with them.’” Greer was a part of Torrey Pines High School’s Yellow Ribbon Week in the spring, a week that promoted suicide prevention and awareness with a variety of speakers and activities. Greer doesn’t have a problem sharing his story with anyone, but he admits he finds public speaking petrifying and wasn’t sure the teens would listen. “Kids were coming up to me afterward. I had been thinking, ‘I’m 44, I’m going to lose the connection with these kids,’ but I was surprised. One girl came up and just hugged me and walked away,” Greer said. “Another girl came up, looked at me like she wanted to say something and just started to cry. I hugged her and told her that if all she could do was cry, that was a good place to start.” Greer’s vision is for more people to take the easy step of being there for someone, to be there to listen or just to tell someone that they matter. “That’s something nobody says or hears enough and that’s so huge,” said Greer. “Nobody had a clue that I wanted to die...sometimes just a smile, just a little thing like that can help because you don’t know what someone’s going through. Tell someone today ‘You matter to me’ because you don’t know if you’ll get the chance to see them again. “I think people are afraid to hear other people’s problems because they want to be able to fix them. But people are not always looking for someone to fix their

problem, they’re just looking for someone to listen.” UMTR2ME has grown through its website and through social media, reaching people not only in San Diego but across the country and even as far away as Italy. Online there are messages of hope and a growing community — Greer personally responds to emails and texts he receives from people looking for help. In addition to Torrey Pines High, he’s also spoken to Marines at Miramar and will participate in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Out of the Darkness Walks in San Diego and Los Angeles on Aug. 19 and 26, as well as the Survivors of Suicide Loss San Diego’s Save a Life Walk on Nov. 10. The organization has white rubber bracelets stamped “UMTR2ME” that Greer has found can spark conversations and connections on its own. One of Greer’s favorite things to tell people is that life is like the weather. There are going to be sunny days and rainy days. He says if life seems easy or that you’ve got it all figured out, you’re not really living. “After my suicide, things actually got much worse,” Greer said. He remembers waking up in the hospital and seeing his parents crying at the foot of his bed, thinking this wasn’t what was supposed to be happening and that he couldn’t even succeed at suicide. Moving forward was not easy and it wasn’t until 10 years after his suicide attempt that he was clinically diagnosed with manic depressive/bipolar disorder 2, as well as attention deficit disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. The diag-

nosis helped him understand there were things going on that he could not control and it became important for him to learn about his illness and be a self-advocate for his mental health. He credits the support of his loving wife in helping him get through—they’ve been married 18 years and have a 21-year-old son. “My life has its ups and it has its downs. You don’t know what the future holds, you don’t even know what tomorrow holds. That’s the thing I love sharing with teenagers especially,” Greer said. He still has downs and hard days but on those days he makes an effort to ask for support. He knows it is not weakness to ask for help, it is not weakness to keep fighting, to find hope and go one more day. “You just can’t do it alone,” Greer said.

Mental health and substance abuse help is available through the county’s behavioral health access and crisis line at (888) 724-7240.

be paid for the subject property.” Deputy City Attorney Carmen Brock, who oversaw the settlement for the city, declined to be interviewed for this story. She referred a reporter’s inquiry to the office of City Attorney Jan Goldsmith, which did not respond to a request for comment by press-time. Attorney Andrew Rauch, who represented the city as outside counsel in the case, also did not respond to a request for comment. More than 400 redevelopment agencies were established across the state in past decades. Their job was to eliminate blight from urban areas by promoting new development. Among their powers was to acquire private property, through negotiation or eminent domain, and then sell it to private developers for new projects.

The state of California dissolved all of the redevelopment agencies in February 2012. Successor agencies were given the task of wrapping up their affairs, such as completing projects and paying off debts. In San Diego’s case, the city became the successor agency, according to the redevelopment page on the city’s web site. The city has “assumed the former agency’s assets, rights and obligations… subject to some limitations,” said the statement. In an email, Brock stressed that the settlement will be paid from the funds of the former redevelopment agency, and not the city’s general fund. The settlement was approved by the San Diego City Council, as well as state officials who are in charge of monitoring the dissolution of the redevelopment agencies

and the state Department of Finance, said McKinley. Under state law, redevelopment agencies received a portion of the property taxes generated through new development in redevelopment areas, called “tax increment.” When Gov. Jerry Brown began the push to abolish redevelopment agencies, he argued that they diverted much-needed property tax revenue from other agencies, such as schools and cities. According to McKinley, the settlement should serve as a lesson for government officials about the proper use of their powers of eminent domain. “I just think it’s a huge vindication of property owners’ rights,” he said. “So often, these government agencies get carried away with the enormous power they have, there’s a tendency to abuse the power.”

Local resident’s new company brings retired physicians back into practice to address country’s doctor shortage BY KAREN BILLING Longtime Rancho Santa Fe resident and retired physician Dr. Leonard Glass is a leading founder of the new company Physician Retraining and Reentry (PRR), which strives to address a growing doctor shortage in this country by getting retired physicians back into practice. Along with Dr. Stanley Pappelbaum, Glass created the educational platform of PRR in collaboration with UC San Diego Medical School. “We take retired doctors of any speciality, including surgery, and retrain them to do adult outpatient family medicine and we do it all online,� Glass said. “It’s never been done before.� The program has only been live for a couple of days and they have had two retired physicians in their 70s sign up, a retired plastic surgeon and a retired neurosurgeon. By taking the course, Glass said retired doctors can help solve a very serious problem in the national healthcare delivery system; get back to helping take care of people; and earn a modest financial boost for their retirement nest egg. Glass, 78, has been a Rancho Santa Fe resident since 1981. A native of Maryland, he attended University of Maryland Medical School and completed his general surgery residency there. He then spent two years in Vietnam as an Army Captain and as a surgeon in the Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH). Glass went to the University of Michigan and studied plastic and reconstructive surgery and then worked for UC San Diego for most of the 1990s. Before and after that he worked in private practice as a plastic surgeon before retiring in 2005. Glass said he spent the first part of his retirement resting and enjoying different hobbies until about three years ago when he read an intriguing article in the Wall Street Journal about a shortage of family doctors.

“The article said — and I have since validated its information — there was a shortage of 33,000 family doctors,� Glass said. “Now, with the Affordable Healthcare Act, that puts another 32 million people who previously had no insurance into the network looking for doctors. Every day, 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65 and become eligible for Medicare. If you add the normal attrition to that 33,000 deficit and Baby Boomers and affordable healthcare, the thinking is that within 10 years the deficit could well double to 65,000 doctors and no one knows what to do about it.�

Glass started to think about a potential solution and spent the next few years really perfecting it. A dedicated problem solver, Glass said, “You have to think ahead, you can’t keep looking in the rearview mirror.� In collaboration with UCSD, PRR has worked on developing its curriculum for the last two and a half years. Two national figures in teaching and practicing family medicine, doctors and UCSD professors William Norcross and David Bazzo designed the curriculum of educational material, exams and a standardized patient competence assessment. Glass said the result is a “terrific� program and an “excellent� testing system. Normally the method to change specialties takes about three years and thousands of dollars. “We don’t think that’s necessary because we’re dealing with seasoned physicians who understand patients and disease processes and can be trained online in a matter of months,� Glass said. Additionally, other retraining services simply bring physicians up to date in the speciality they retired from but PRR can take any doctor — no matter what field of practice —and update their skills to allow them to return to practice in the specialty of primary care. With their curriculum, physicians can go at their own pace, taking anywhere from two months to a year to complete the course.

“We think there’s tens of thousands of retired physicians out there,� Glass said. “There’s an excess sitting around twiddling their thumbs and playing too much golf. This is an opportunity to do something exciting, enjoyable, helping those in need and solving a national healthcare crisis.� Glass said they are in the process of setting up a placement division to help get jobs that are geographically desirable for the retrained physicians, as well as play to their priorities which include part time, no administrative duties and no nights or weekend call responsibilities. “Some might say, ‘Who will hire them?’ But not many people know there are 7,000 federally funded community clinics now in the United States seeing about 20 million patients a year,� Glass said. “They all need doctors.� Glass said there is also need for doctors in medical schools, college and university health clinics, VA facilities, hospital-assembled primary care groups, and retail providers such as CVS and Walgreens. Glass hopes PRR will help do its part to create that link between the thousands of retired doctors and the current shortage that is only growing. “I hope that our company can achieve so much success that nationally others will copy us,� Glass said. “I think that will happen.� To learn more, visit www.prrprogram. com.

Writer’s Roundtable: Q&A with Schindler’s List author Thomas Keneally BY ANTOINETTE KURITZ AND JARED KURITZ Best known for Schindler’s Ark, which American audiences know as Schindler’s List, Thomas Keneally is an Australian playwright and author of both fiction and nonfiction, who has won numerous accolades for his writing, among them the Mann Booker award. Considered to be a national treasure in Australia, Keneally will be introducing American audiences to his newest novel, The Daughters of Mars, this September. Here in San Diego you can meet him at Warwick’s on the evening of Sunday, Sept. 15. Recently, Mr. Keneally responded to a few questions about writing: 1. You write both fiction and non-fiction. For purposes of process, what do you find to be the commonality between the two; and what is the biggest difference? With fiction you can do what you wish, steal incidents from real life and give them fictional existence without attribution. With history you have to try to tell the truth based on the record, but on that record you can make psychological surmises about characters who really lived, so both history and fiction are character-driven. The best way I can explain it is that in fiction you try to tell the truth by telling lies, and in history, you try to tell the truth by telling the truth. But even in history it’s a matter of selection and the sort of person we are. 2. History and historical fiction seem to be your genres of choice. Why do these genres appeal to you? And you once said in an interview that historical fiction is most valid as it reflects on the present. Can you explain what you mean by that? Historical fiction is wonderful because one is driven to it by hearing, in a journal or biography, a voice that’s utterly modern. It’s that thrill of identifying someone in the past as if they were in the next room and not impossibly removed in time — that’s the kick I’m looking for. That’s, for example, what I heard from the nurses’ journals I read. And you can find events which reflect absolutely what’s happening now – crazy war, obscene trauma, the struggle of young women for status and the drive towards medical innovation

Thomas Keneally under the pressure of frightful damage done to the flesh of young men. You might be writing about 1915, but the better way of saying it is that history has permitted you to write about universal experience and the present through the lens of 1915, ‘16, ‘17, etc. 3. While you have been a prolific writer, the quality of your work has maintained. What keeps writing fresh for you? When you write you become ageless. It’s the same process for me as a 77 year old as it is for a 28 year old. It’s an experience I

very much like. The bit I’m not addicted to is reading the proofs and finding the book is not as good as you thought. But then you can always write another one that hits the golden standard. So it’s a bit like being a habitual gambler. You always believe that this time you’re going to really hammer it down. The experience of writing keeps you fresh and, one hopes, it confers that quality to the writing. 4. What is the common thread in your writing? There are always people separated by different cultures and conditioning in my novels. Well, not in absolutely all, but in most. Fraternity or love across the lines that have been drawn for us by demagogues and propagandists and ayatollahs. Schindler crosses that line, but it happens in other novels about Australian Aborigines or wars in Africa and so on. We are all subjected to conditioning when it comes to religion and culture and race, but I’m interested in the occasions we rise above the conditioning. I’m also fascinated by war and the overriding question – why we do it. We can explain it in terms of ambitions for territory and resources, but explaining why so many of us will sign on for the expe-

rience, as my father did in WWII – that’s very interesting. 5. What would you like readers to take away from experiencing your work? I’m not sure. I am not convinced books always change the world morally, and, mind you, given the scoundrels most of us writers are, that’s not surprising. I would like them to take away from this novel a sense of the world enlarged, a confirmation that there was humanity and folly in 19141918, there is humanity and folly now, and there has always been a commonality of human experience, and the hope we can grow out of folly in the end.

Golfer Jamie Lovemark riding high on the comeback trail BY GIDEON RUBIN As a youth up-and-comer at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, Jamie Lovemark made fans quick. It didn’t hurt, of course, that by the time he was 12, Lovemark made the junior golf circuit look ridiculously easy. “We knew from a very young age it looked he was going to be something special and he turned out he was awfully good,� Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club Pro Emeritus Chuck Courtney said of Lovemark. “He was more or less a prodigy.� But that wasn’t the only reason he stood out. In an area that routinely turns out some of the nation’s best golfers, it was other qualities that got his local community to take a liking to him. “He’s always minded his P’s and Q’s and he’s always behaved beautifully,� Courtney said. The former Torrey Pines High standout went on to experience collegiate stardom at USC and then burst on the pro circuit in his

Jamie Lovemark 2010 debut before a back injury sent his career into a free fall. A year after undergoing surgery, Lovemark is on the comeback trail. He is coming off a breakout month, placing in the top 10 in three straight July tournaments, highlighted by winning the Midwest Classic on the tour on July 21. Lovemark tied for seventh the previous week at the Utah Championship on July 14 and tied for sixth at the Albertsons Boise Open on July 28. Before the Utah Championship, Lovemark had made cuts in just five of

his previous 12 tournaments on the tour – without a top10 finish. His turnaround has thrilled his local fans who weren’t sure if their prodigy would ever pick up where he left off when he hurt his back. “His career looked like it was in a state of collapse of a few years ago,� Courtney acknowledged. “Now he’s returned and everybody is very happy about it – everybody.� Lovemark won the Midwest Classic in thrilling fashion, with him draining a 15foot par put on the last hole to win the tournament by one stroke. Lovemark shot a 5-under-par 66 on the final day and a 18-under 266 overall at Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate. Lovemark’s title was his first since wining the Mexico Open in 2010 – his only other professional championship. The win also catapulted Lovemark from 76th to 14th on this year’s money list, earning him $108,000 to bring his total for the year to $149,983. “It feels great to be playing well again and this win is a huge relief for me,� Lovemark told reporters after winning the Midwest Classic. “It was nice to finally put four good rounds together.� Lovemark had one of the most distinguished careers at arguably the nation’s most prestigious high school programs at Torrey Pines. He averaged a 35.4 score on nine-hole courses his senior year, which worked out to

16 shots under par for the season. He shot an 8-under-par 64 on an 18-hole course at Singing Hills Golf Course, and shot a 30 (6-under-par) on the front nine holes of the 2006 San Diego Section championships. In 2005 he became the youngest player ever to win the prestigious Western Amateur competing against an international field of elite golfers in a tournament that counts Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Justin Leonard and Phil Mickelson among its previous champions. He won the 2007 NCAA individual championship in 2007 as a freshman at USC where he was a two-time first-team All-American. Lovemark achieved his success with a self-taught swing his father helped him develop – a rarity at a time when individualized instruction is pervasive, and not all for the better, Courtney said. “Most of these players are far, far,far, over-analyzed, over-videoed – and overcoached,� Courtney said. “I think it’s just over the top, I don’t think it’s even good for them, frankly I think they should learn to be more independent, and Jamie is.� The result is a repeatable swing that’s silky smooth and which comes in stark contrast to the more mechanical swings ubiquitous on today’s junior circuit. “It’s refreshing to me to see somebody that’s done it on their own,� Courtney said. “He has a magnificent

game and he learned it on his own.� Lovemark hasn’t been seen much of the home course he practically grew up on since moving to Florida a few years ago. But the former amateur sensation’s resurgence has given his fans back home something to be excited about. “He’s just a nice young

man and all of us ... are thrilled and hope that he (continues) on his comeback trail,� Courtney said. “I hope he continues and I’m not alone — he’s got a lot of fans in this town. Everybody around our club — the golf people that are paying attention to him — are all abuzz.�

Development of Township 14 office buildings continues in Del Mar Heights area Construction is past the halfway point on Township 14, making it the first new office buildings in Del Mar Heights since 2006. The two class-A buildings that make up Township 14 will offer “luxurious interior finishes, modern architecture and the highest level of services and amenities.” Located on High Bluff Drive, the project will serve “as a premier workspace in the heart of an elite business community neighboring numerous Fortune 500 companies in various business sectors.” “We are pleased to announce world-renowned law firm, Latham & Watkins, has signed on as our anchor tenant at 12670 High Bluff Drive and will occupy the entire three-story 70,000 square-foot building,” said Eric Northbrook, executive director at Cushman & Wakefield.

John Pfleeger with Del Mar Airport sign. Photo by Kristina Houck

Rare Del Mar Airport sign John Pfleeger might have one of the only remnants of the Del Mar Airport. During a morning walk to Torrey Pines Beach in 1972, Pfleeger saw a sign that read “Airport” sticking out of a parked Caltrans garbage truck on the corner of Carmel Valley Road and Highway 101. The 5-by-1 sign has been since been sitting in his garage. “I thought, ‘Once they throw this in the trash, it will get buried,’” said 84-year-old Pfleeger, a Del Mar resident for more than 40 years. “It just seemed that because the airport is gone and it’s a part of the Del Mar history, we shouldn’t let it be trashed. It didn’t seem right to throw it away.” Pfleeger said he offered to donate the sign to the Del Mar Historical Society several years ago, but the nonprofit didn’t have space to store it. For now, it will continue to sit in his garage. — Kristina Houck

Solana Beach City Council Bloopers

Where is the One Paseo model?

During the last several months there have been some things that the City Council of Solana Beach has really “goofed” on in my opinion. I mention these in light of the latest initiative drafted to try to resolve one of these goofs. #1. The City Council’s lapse of memory on coastal issues that they promised to support on behalf of the bluff owners in reference to the Coastal Commission proposed requirements for the City’s own local coastal plan. In a complete turnaround, the City Council caved in to the whims of the Coastal Commission and not the residents in agreeing to just about everything that the coastal agency wanted and the residents did not…go figure. #2. In their ultimate wisdom to do the right thing, they initiated the infamous “plastic bag”ordinance throughout the land, no other city nearby has it unless you want to consider Los Angeles our neighbor. Now we have to remember to bring our own bags or pay 10 cents for paper ones or nothing and carry purchases out to your car yourself. At least Costco gives us boxes and Sprouts pays us for bringing your own bags, but now everybody from Vons to Dixieline to Leaping Lotus to Cupcake Love must not use single-use plastic bags. This has really been a bust for some businesses, especially when residents can go to the Flower Hill area (in the City of San Diego) and not be bothered with this mess. No other cities have joined in the “plastic bag crusade” so we are an island devoid of single use plastic bags...except that I used mine for multi-uses like doggie bags, giving away fruit and vegetables from my garden, carrying wet diapers, etc. and now I have to buy more plastic stuff to replace them anyway… no single uses here. #3. Then there’s the latest fiasco with the Community Center on the bluff above Fletcher Cove. For 50-plus years the community has been able to rent the facility by the beach for private events such as birthday parties, wedding events, scout troops, anniversaries, etc. Now, after the community largely paid for the renovation of the old building and spent innumerable hours working on the property, there is no permit in place so residents cannot use the center, as it formerly was used for years. Why not, because the City Council cannot decide on a use policy for the place. Now that it’s been closed for private events for over two years, some people think it should be made much more restrictive and expensive than before. An initiative is now being circulated to let the public vote on reasonable uses like before and reasonable prices like other facilities in our city and nearby towns like Del Mar and Encinitas. Nobody said it was an easy job being a public official, it certainly doesn’t even pay much in a small city like Solana Beach, but let’s not forget City Council members that this was your choice to serve and people expect good things from their publicly-elected folks, not grief, not delays, not unnecessary laws, and certainly not broken promises. Now go and do the right thing...if you can. Marion Dodson

At the Feb. 27 meeting of the Carmel Valley Planning Board about the One Paseo development, the chairman requested the developer, Kilroy Realty, provide them with a scaled (3-D) model of the project, and the Kilroy representative agreed. On March 22, I went to the Kilroy office and asked to look at the model. The first two people I talked with denied that any model existed; however, the third person I spoke with (Brian Brady) explained that they do have a model, but cautioned that it is out of date. (The model is based on Kilroy’s earlier proposed development of 1.4 million square feet.) When I viewed the model, I was astonished and disturbed to see that the high-rise buildings are crammed together, leaving very little space between them. Even worse is that these massive buildings are at the edges of the property, walling it off from the neighborhood. Although the tallest building in Kilroy’s current project is 8 stories, and not as high as the 10 stories originally proposed, this modest reduction doesn’t come close to complying with the carefully planned, low-rise character of our treasured neighborhood. Kilroy’s fancy ads promote One Paseo as a walkable, people-scaled development — a haven where residents can meet, eat, and relax, and children can frolic amidst flowers and greenery. But the model clearly reveals that the public plaza and green areas occupy only a tiny area, and the main public space is surrounded by the tall buildings. The overall effect is more like a crowded alleyway (where sunlight would be shut out for a good part of the day) than the spacious, amenity-filled “main street” that Kilroy has so fervently touted. Deceptively, none of Kilroy’s picturesque drawings of One Paseo even hint at the 5-to-8-story buildings that would surround the central plaza. Kilroy should be honest with One Paseo’s neighbors and the planning board, and let us all see exactly how the project would truly look — as only a model can do. How else can the board make a well-informed, reality-based decision about the project? On Aug. 8, the planning board will meet again to discuss One Paseo. On behalf of everyone who lives, works, and/or shops near the One Paseo site, I challenge Kilroy to do the right thing, and show us all an updated project model, as promised.

I am Retired – Municipal Dysfunction Meter

JON CLARK Photographer DON PARKS Chief Revenue Officer/General Manager

In a Los Angeles Times article by Robin Abcarian, she muses that “someone should invent a municipal dysfunction meter. Measurement units could be ‘Filners.’ Maybe one Filner would be composed of two Weiners.” More negative publicity for our city, but we are helping the late night comedians. The Mayor’s defense is that he never received training in what behavior is considered sexual harassment under California statutes. This is where common sense is blurred by legal jargon. Do not laugh; San Diego might be on the hook for partial damages since the Mayor can claim he did not known what constitutes sexual harassment. Before I ran for City Council, I was required to attend an Ethics course. Again, common sense may not be the law. Case in point, Election form 700 requires you to disclose some of your assets. This is to avoid any conflict of interest you might have in approving a project. I called the Ethics Commission about my very small ownership of some common stock in a Mongolian copper mine. I was told that “yes,” I needed to list my shares (now get this) because I might vote on a project/building that had copper wire in the walls. I explained that the company only produced raw copper ore, not a finished product and San Diego did not have a contract with the mine. This did not matter as some of the copper wire in a building might have come from the Mongolian ore. Fuzzy logic! California sexual harassment rules are codified in Assembly Bill 1825. There is an entire industry devoted to training seminars to explain do’s and don’ts. Did you know that “leering” is sexual harassment? More to the point, our Mayor does deserve due process but will this very slow and painful process of litigation and recall impede the work of the people, for the people? Is this what you envisioned when you voted for the “Strong Mayor form of government?” Dennis Ridz

One Paseo: No sense in meeting until we see a 510,000-square-foot plan Here we go again! Another One Paseo meeting! Another waste of time. Another crazy discussion of the pros and cons, the lies and facts, and the mysterious, unsubstantiated counting of “who’s for” and “who’s against” at the end. There is no sense in meeting or discussing this further until we see the following in the plan: 510,000 square feet. I don’t see 510,000 square feet, do you? No meetings until we see 510,000. Dave Wolfson Carmel Valley Resident and Business Owner

CHASE continued from page 1 miles southwest of Laguna Beach. The personnel arrested the two Mexican nationals and impounded 38 bales of cannabis piled on the motorboat. The haul of mari-

juana had an estimated street value of about $4.1 million, the spokesman said. The suspects, whose names were not released, and the contraband were turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in San Diego.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

What’s wrong with this picture? Contemplate, according to the National Center For Health Statistic, the black unwed birthrate in America is in excess of 72 percent. Picture communities saturated with fathers playing little or no role in the lives of the children they bring into the world. Note the direct link of poverty to single mothers raising children. Bad outcomes are dramatically more likely for children growing up without a father in the home. A Heritage Foundation study reveals a poverty rate among single women with children of 37.1 percent, verses two-parent homes with a poverty rate of 6.8 percent. The U.S. Department of Labor reports unemployment of 13 percent for black Americans. And black youth unemployment now hovers around 40 percent. Real Clear Science tells us that murder rates among black young men reached a devastating level of 28.8/100,000, while the comparable rate for white young men is 2.1/100,000. We are experiencing a virtual murder orgy of black men killing other black men in our cities. The U.S. Center For Disease Control tells us that 13 million black babies have been aborted since 1973. The black abortion rate is four times the white. More blacks killing blacks. In this case we find adults (and some minor female mothers) snuffing out nascent human life. Thus is the picture of the black inner city in 2013. Overwhelming evidence of a cultural disaster totally detached from racism, guns or racial profiling. We revel at the fact that there are more black elected officials then at any time in our history — a black President, Attorney General, Supreme Court Justice and an ever-growing list of Cabinet and administrative officers. It has become a bit of a “representation” obsession. Feels good, but to what end? I use the term obsession because as these numbers have risen the problems have not diminished. Blacks holding elected office and voting in greater numbers have proved to be nothing more than a tasty bit of psychological candy having little or no impact on improving the lives of black Americans. After more than a half century of “progressive” (leftist) leadership, black and white, Detroit, Oakland, Chicago and countless other cities are bankrupt (or on verge of), bulging with the unemployed and cursed with rampant crime. As Detroit Mayor Bing stated, “There are hundreds of cities like Detroit.” Anyone with an ounce of intellectual integrity would acknowledge that the problems plaguing the black community are largely due to cultural deficiencies (absence of fathers) and the failure of left-wing, big government “solutions.” Racism, to whatever degree it exists, is a minor factor. So what’s wrong with this picture? The mainstream media and the race hustler class have been fixated on an unremarkable homicide in Sanford Florida? The tragic shooting of a young black man, Trayvon Martin, by a Hispanic community watch leader, George Zimmerman, worried about another in a long line of break-ins in his neighborhood. In this case every detective, investigator and prosecutor who initially examined the homicide, concluded that no provable criminal case could be mounted against the Hispanic shooter. A jury, after hearing all the evidence, agreed. Was that the end of the non-story? Nope. Filled with misplaced righteous indignation and buttressed by media-driven fantasies of what may have happened, some are convulsing with the fallback excuses: racism, profiling and guns. Not one scintilla of evidence of racism. The prosecution was unable to produce evidence of racial profiling. And a gun legally possessed. The “racist” in question was close to two black girls that were like siblings to him growing up, defended a black homeless man alleging a police assault, and voted for a black President. Yep, he is drenched in racism. The way this whole tragic affair has been portrayed by the mainstream media is the real crime committed against the black community. That crime is the lack of attention to the causes of social ills. Misled and exploited by [people] like Al Sharpton, millions expend volumes of energy and spout incoherent rhetoric that will have zero positive impact on the problems gripping the black community. It has been very painful to watch all this play out. I see lawyers ignoring the law and facts to speculate in front of a camera. During the trial they pontificated based on speculation that the general public picked up and treated like evidence or fact. Maybe just maybe a sober look at Detroit would have been a better use of media time and energy. Detroit provides us with a classic case of 60 years of failed Democratic policy, black unemployment, dying communities and uncontrolled crime. Anyone not handicapped by partisan bias will see what works and what fails. But it is far easier and more provocative to scream racism. Michael Hayutin

Climate change: The costs of inaction are mounting I support President Obama’s recently announced plan to combat climate change and advance clean energy. The plan calls for reducing carbon pollution from power plants — our largest source of pollution driving climate change — that also harms our health and economy. We are already seeing the effects of climate change: storms are becoming more intense, heat waves more severe, drought more persistent and wildfire more prevalent. Superstorm Sandy alone caused more than $1 billion in damages and a loss of life that cannot be quantified. Rising temperatures also trigger more bad-air days, which are of particular concern for the young, the elderly and those with asthma and other health issues. We can’t afford to ignore these costs any longer. Investing in renewable energy, increased efficiency and pollution controls will create jobs and a more resilient economy. In fact, history has shown when we rein in pollution we get a big bang for our buck. Since 1970 every $1 in investment in compliance with Clean Air Act standards has produced $4-8 in economic benefits. When it comes to our climate, the costs of inaction are mounting. We owe it to our children and future generations to rise to this challenge. Avril Prakash, Solana Beach

Rotary Club of Del Mar: Couples Welcome BY MARK HENSHAW What would it take to change the world? Rotary’s 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to “Service Above Self.” Today, many Rotarians are choosing “Us” over “Self” as more and more couples are joining Rotary together to maximize their volunteer efforts and spend time working jointly on service projects. Rotary members have historically joined solo, but the Rotary Club of Del Mar includes several couples where both partners heard the call of service, and joined the international effort of serving others here in San Diego and throughout the world. Club projects range from contributing to the final push to eradicate polio from the world, to organizing beach cleanups in Del Mar. Rotarians support open-heart surgeries for children in China, and spend Saturdays with orphans in Tijuana.

and Torrey Highlands locations, or San Diego County Sheriff for Del Mar and Solana Beach locations. Then select from up to 15 types of crime cases, a date range, and enter an address. And then click on Search to get a map and select a search radius. You can also generate a report that lists all the mapped crime cases. And for crime prevention tips and other information on safety and security, go to the Crime Prevention and Education section of the San Diego Police Department’s website at — Natalie Hone, SDPD Northwestern Division Community Relations Officer

In fact, club members Larry and Katie Cook were the first married couple in the same club in all of Rotary in the 1980s, when Larry was chair of the district committee to allow women in Rotary. Today, the couple works together on projects working with community youth from middle school through college, doing community service projects, and developing future Rotarians. The two are also partners in business at Cook and Cook Associates, a financial services firm. Karl and Susan Wagner joined the club last year. Karl is the CEO of The Wagner Group, a manufacturer’s representative agency, and Susan owns and operates Self Service Storage facilities. Karl and Susan joined Rotary to become more involved with the community of Del Mar. The couple dove right in, assisting in fundraising events such as the Chili and Quackers Ducky Derby and the Sunset Soiree. They have found new friends with similar interests and goals of helping the residents of the Del Mar community.

“It has been a rewarding experience to work together and experience firsthand all the good that Rotary accomplishes for both our own community and around the world,” said Susan. Don and Donna Fipps joined the club to continue membership in Rotary after moving to San Diego from West Sacramento. Don is Laboratory Manager Transfusion/ Transplantation/Molecular Diagnostics at UCSD’s Center for Advance Laboratory Medicine. Donna is a volunteer puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence and is a Registered Veterinary Technician. “Donna had been attending Rotary meetings and events for years as a spouse of a Rotarian,” said Don. “After our move to San Diego, she was looking for additional volunteer opportunities. She decided to join the club as she had been attending club meetings and events as a guest anyway; plus, Rotary does good things!” The two work together on a new club newsletter that has been a big hit with the club. Whether solo or with your spouse, please join us for lunch and see what being a member of the Rotary Club of Del Mar is like. The club meets each Thursday at noon at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on 14th Street. For more information, please visit www. or find us on Facebook at http://www.

The DMCV Sharks Boys U13 White team.

Sharks Boys U13 White team takes Copa Del Mar title The DMCV Sharks Boys U13 White team took the cup at the recent Copa Del Mar tournament in the top F50 bracket. The Sharks were directed by Coach Roy Ashcroft. Coach challenged the team to play tough and be first to the ball. The team won their bracket with a record of 2-1-0. Facing the Strikers FC, a tough team from Huntington Beach in the finals, the Sharks opened the scoring when left mid-fielder Brandon Teren spotted an opening and took the ball across the face of the goal through traffic and poked it in during the first 10 minutes of the game. The Strikers, who won their bracket 3-0-0 with 23 goals for and 2 against, struck back before half time to make it a 1-1 draw. In a tightly contested second half, the Sharks scored on a free kick from the top of the 18 yard box by center mid-fielder Derek Bragado after a Strikers poor tackle. The final 10 minutes played out as the Sharks defense continued to put on a strong showing to stifle the Strikers attempts to come back. This is the second tournament win this summer for the Sharks, who recently won the Escondido Kickin’ it Challenge for breast cancer in Escondido.

Carmel Valley youth earns Black Belt in record time BY GLORIA LIMAS AN Carmel Valley resident Simon Scott earned his black belt at the Golden Dragon Chinese Kung Fu and Culture Institute this summer. At 10 years of age he is one of the youngest black belt recipients in the school’s history. The black belt test is administered solely two times per year, towards the end of summer and at the end of year. Nine belt levels have to be mastered to be able to test for the black belt. An average of 72 hours is spent in training for each belt level. So far this year there have been a total of three black belt titles awarded. At the end of last year, there were five. EnZhen Tang is the principal at the Golden Dragon Chinese Kung Fu School in Sorrento Valley. She says the program offered has a base foundation and three pillars. “We first and foremost teach our students respect. Next is self-motivation, then discipline and finally confidence. This model allows for students to have both a strong body and a strong mind throughout life.” Simon’s mother, Kim Lim, is very proud of her son. She says he has been training very hard for the opportunity to earn a black belt. “Simon has worked hard for this honor,” Lim said. “His years of perseverance and discipline were demonstrated with the grace and ease of his forms. He has truly embraced his culture and has been a leader and example for other students. We are so proud of him!” The kung fu program includes yearly competitions outside of San Diego where students are able to showcase their talent. They are held at the University of California at Berkeley and the University of California at Los Angeles. Some of the local instructors from the San Diego kung fu school travel to serve as judges for the events. The school offers programs which are open to all children and adults who are interested in learning about the Chinese culture. There is also an after-school program that

Olympic soccer star/ TPHS grad Rachel Buehler now plays in newly-formed National Women’s Soccer League BY GIDEON RUBIN Rachel Buehler was still in grade school when she developed a passion for soccer scampering the Del Mar Polo Fields. That passion helped propel her to high school stardom at Torrey Pines High, a Stanford scholarship, two Olympic gold medals, and stints in two professional leagues. These days, she’s bringing her passion for soccer to playing and growing it at the same time. Buehler, who played for Torrey Pines teams that won San Diego Section championships in 2000 and 2003 and won gold medals with Team USA at the Beijing and London Olympics in 2008 and 2012, now plays for the Portland Thorns in the newly-formed National Women’s Soccer League. Buehler is a starting defender for the Thorns, but she considers her role as an ambassador — one that she shares with players throughout the new league — to be just as important. “It’s such a huge part of it,� Buehler said, noting that players throughout the league have launched an aggressive grassroots efforts to promote the league, including holding clinics and other outreach programs. “We’re really trying to make a strong effort to promote the league to be sustainable,� she said. “I think we’ve really taken that on ourselves as a big responsibility. We think it’s really important for soccer in our country, for girls in our country and for women in general it’s a pretty cool thing.� The NWSL, which kicked off its inaugural season last spring, fields eight teams. It hopes to expand to 10 by next year. “It’s so important for the growth of women’s soccer in our country,� Buehler said. “A lot of girls have actually been leaving the United States to play for professional teams in other countries. I think for the growth of soccer in our country it’s important to keep the very best players here.� The NWSL is the third professional women’s soccer league to launch in the United States. Buehler played for two years for Santa Clara-based FC Gold Pride in Women’s Professional Soccer, a league that folded within three years of its 2009 inaugural. The Women’s United Soccer Association, which fielded a San Diego team (the San Diego Spirit), folded within three

She believes it incentivizes the game at all levels, from youth club teams all the way up to the elite collegiate level, something to play for. “There’s just so many benefits to it,� Buehler said, noting that in the absence of a professional league, top-level players are limited to competing for just a few open spots each year on the national team. “Such a small percentage of girls actually get to do that, but having a league, some girls that maybe aren’t on the national team, or are (on the national team), they can continue to play after college and that’s pretty exciting,� she said. A viable professional women’s soccer league can also play an important societal role, Buehler said. “Role models aren’t as accessible to a lot of the young

girl athletes as they are to the boy athletes who have male sports figures they can look up to,� she said. And the NWSL is a gold mine in that department, she said. “We have a great bunch of female role models� in the NWSL, Buehler said. “The character and the quality of people that are in this league, there are just so many great women for girls to look up to. “A lot of our fans at our games are young female soccer players and they kind of look up to us as role models and we can kind of provide that.� Buehler, whose career highlights include standing atop Olympic podiums, still counts her youth-level experiences among her most memorable. She’s remained in contact with former teammates at Torrey Pines and on the Del Mar Sharks and San Diego Surf club teams. She considers her experience at Torrey Pines crucial in her development as a person and as an athlete. “I just had an incredible experience at Torrey Pines academically and athletically,� she said, noting the school’s outstanding academics and athletics programs. “It’s just an incredible institution.� She credits coaching legend Dennis Costello, who retired in 2011, with creating an environment that pushed players to their limits without pushing them out the door. “Dennis made things fun,� she said. “He was a really positive coach, and he definitely taught me a lot about taking responsibility that empowered me to succeed.� Costello’s program also taught her to be a better teammate. “The program helped me understand what it means to represent your school or something bigger than yourself,� she said. Buehler continues to do that in her ambassadorship role. “It’s very exciting to be part of this pioneering group of women starting up this league,� she said. “Hopefully over time the league will expand. It would be great if there were a California team or a San Diego team; that would be amazing to play for my hometown. “We’ll have to take it one step at a time, but the most important thing at this point is just getting it out there and making (the NWSL) sustainable.�

Director of UCSD stem cell program says research field is at the ‘beginning of a revolution in science and medicine’

Shakespeare expert Barry Edelstein directs the magic at Old Globe Old Globe Artistic Director Barry Edelstein is a stage director, producer, author and educator. Recognized as one of the leading Shakespeare authorities in the United States, he has directed nearly half of the Bard’s works. As Director of the Shakespeare Initiative at The Public Theater (20082012), he oversaw all of the company’s Shakespearean productions, as well as its educational, community outreach and artist-training programs. He was also associate producer of The Public’s Broadway production of “The Merchant of Venice,” starring Al Pacino. He was artistic director of OffBroadway’s Classic Stage Company, 1998-2003. Edelstein’s Shakespearean directorial credits include “The Winter’s Tale,’ “Timon of Athens,” “As You Like It,” and “Richard III.” His additional credits include the award-winning revival of “All My Sons”; the world premiere of Steve Martin’s “The Underpants,” which he commissioned; Molière’s “The Misanthrope”; and the world premiere “The Twenty-Seventh Man.” His book, “Thinking Shakespeare” (called by New York magazine “a mustread for actors”) is now the standard text on American Shakespearean acting. He is also the author of “Bardisms: Shakespeare for All Occasions.” What brought you to San Diego? The opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to run The Old Globe, one of the great American theaters. What might you add, subtract or improve in the area? I’d make access to Balboa Park easier. The Globe

Barry Edelstein and the 27 other arts and cultural institutions in the historic core of the Park are an urban resource unparalleled in the United States. It kills me when I hear San Diegans say that they don’t use that resource because of something as silly — and to me, fixable — as parking. I’m convinced that if San Diego were to make Balboa Park access a priority, all the huge brains in town would figure it out. Who or what inspires you? My children are daily inspirations. In the past half-year my daughter, who’s six, got a new sibling, a new city, a new home, and a new school. And she handled all that change with a kind of grace and aplomb that my wife and I can only hope to emulate. My family’s support for what I do makes it possible for me to do it, and sends me to work every day inspired to be the best person and the best artist I can be. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? I assume my wife is there; add to that four

BY JOE TASH When Larry Goldstein imagines the potential of modern stem cell science, he is reminded of a scene from the 1967 Academy Awardwinning film “The Graduate,” starring Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft. Hoffman’s character, a recent college graduate named Benjamin Braddock, is chatting with an older man at a cocktail party. “I just want to say one word to you…just one word… plastics,” the man tells Benjamin. Goldstein, 57, a Carmel Valley resident and head of one of the nation’s premier stem cell research labs, sees a vast upside to his chosen field of research in terms of scientific advancement, treatment of devastating diseases, and economic prosperity, similar to the character’s prediction for plastics. “We’re at the beginning of a revolution in science and medicine,” said Goldstein. “What’s the hot business going forward? Man, it’s biological plastics. They can replenish themselves, you can make them do things, you can build stuff. It’s incredible.” “It’s not unrealistic to think that over the course of the next several decades, that artificial organs will be built of materials made from stem cells, either fully or in part,” he said. Goldstein wears two official hats – director of the UC San Diego stem cell program, and scientific director of the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine. As Goldstein explained it, his role with UCSD is to facilitate and remove barriers for investigators working on a number of different stem cell-related projects, while his work with the Sanford Consortium involves coordination with scientists from a number of different research institutions on Torrey Pines Mesa. He also co-founded a biotech company, Cytokinetics, which is developing

Dr. Larry Goldstein drugs based on stem cell science. In an interview in his Sanford Consortium office, a glass-walled rectangle overlooking the Torrey Pines Gliderport, Goldstein talked about his work, advancements in stem cell research, and his views on higher education. One of his jobs, as he sees it, is to communicate clearly and accessibly about the work of stem cell scientists. With that in mind, he wrote “Stem Cells for Dummies,” a primer on the field, with journalist Meg Schneider, published in 2010. While he regrets the title – “I’d prefer ‘Stem Cells for Smart People Who Want to Know More’” — he is proud of the book, which provides thorough explanations of the different types of stem cells, how they work, how they can affect the future and other topics. The primary types of stem cells, said Goldstein, are embryonic, adult, and re-programmed. Each type of stem cell has its place in the research going on in Goldstein’s lab, which is conducting a range of experiments, such as seeking to understand what goes wrong in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients, and developing a means of stem cell transplantation to treat ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, he said. Researchers are also studying a rare childhood

disease called Niemann Pick Type C, a fatal neurological condition that affects children. Embryonic stem cells are found in an early stage of the human embryo called the blastocyst, and have the ability to form any cell in the adult human body, from brain to liver to skin to bone, according to Goldstein. The can also grow indefinitely in the lab, providing material for researchers, and cells for potential treatments. The use of embryonic stem cells in research is controversial, because the blastocyst – a ball of 100-200 cells – is destroyed. About a million blastocysts – created during fertility treatments – are stored in freezers around the world, more than enough for researchers to work with, Goldstein said. Adult stem cells can replicate themselves, and also generate specific types of tissue, such as skin, blood and various organs. Finally, scientists have discovered ways to “reprogram” adult stem cells so they regain their “pluripotency,” or ability to generate different types of stem cells. Goldstein likened the different types of stem cells to tools in a scientist’s tool box, and said researchers must select the right tool for the job they are doing. Along with his research hat, Goldstein mentors students as they assist in research projects in his lab. An alumnus of UCSD, Goldstein spoke of being hugely influenced when one of his professors allowed him to work in the lab as an undergrad. “I discovered something I was excited about, that I was passionate about, that I was good at and could devote my life to,” he said. His work with students, then, is an effort to “pay it forward,” by helping inspire the next generation of scientists. One-on-one contact between students and professors is essential to the learning process, he said, adding that he is deeply skeptical of the value of large-scale lecture courses attended by dozens, or hundreds of students. He advocates an overhaul of the educational system, which he concedes will require hiring more faculty. But he insisted such an approach will yield a higher quality educational outcome. “I’m kind of a radical on this. Every single undergraduate student at UCSD ought to write a senior thesis or project… that really is a multi-year investigation with faculty involvement and supervision,” he said.

Children thrive at Autism Tree Project Foundation’s art camp in Solana Beach

Courtesy photo the art conservatory program at school. “These girls all have such creative potential and enormous imaginations. They love art, but some of the girls have difficulty expressing themselves. I just wanted to make an opportunity for them to be able to learn and develop their technique, but be open-ended so they can express themselves.� National Charity League first partnered with the Autism Tree Project Foundation to create the Girls Mentor Program, which pairs autistic girls with NCL girls for girls-only events. More than 85 girls with autism are currently participating in the program. “I’m really proud of her,� said former art teacher Elizabeth Kaplan, Isabelle’s mother. “I feel like NCL has been a great experience for her because she’s learned so much and she’s really connected with a lot of girls through the Autism Tree Project Foundation.�

Before heading to college in fall 2014, Isabelle Kaplan plans to lead another camp next summer and train other local art students to continue the program. “Our children have so much to give and have so many talents,� Fran Gray said. “If we don’t provide an opportunity for them to demonstrate what they know and a chance to be in an environment where they can express themselves, we’ll never know what they’re capable of.� To RSVP for the two remaining camp sessions on Aug. 11 and 18, contact Lisa Kaufmann at 619-222-4465 or lisa@ For more information about the Autism Tree Project Foundation, visit

Martinique’s mother, Fran Gray, said her daughter has always used art to express herself. “She loves it,� Fran Gray said. “Art gives them a chance to use their imagination.

Dinner is served in the quaint dining room at Kaiserhof.

Kaiserhof offers Old World flavors and style BY KELLEY CARLSON n the funky seaside community of Ocean Beach sits Kaiserhof, a restaurant more typical of a Bavarian village, with its green shutters featuring wooden tree cutouts and a fence that wraps around the roof. The family-owned establishment is based in a sunny yellow cottage along Sunset Cliffs Boulevard. Inside is classic European décor – arched entryways, paintings of stately castles and crests that represent the different states of Germany and even a few cuckoo clocks. (Only one clock operates regularly, to avoid driving the customers cuckoo.) A fireplace and gilded mirrors further add to the charm and elegance. For an experience that’s more casual, there’s a biergarten and bar in the back — the place to take advantage of happy hour specials. There are plenty of festive touches, from the lights strung above to the signs advertising beverages such as Erdinger and Killepitsch, and clocks that track the time in Munich and Ocean Beach. The mood is often mellow, enhanced by “natural” sounds from a bubbling fountain and whistling cockatiels, or occasionally classical music. But at times it’s lively, as patrons get into high spirits with beer drinking


A flight of beers at Kaiserhof may consist of varieties such as Paulaner Pils, Kaiserhof Kölsch, ‘Korbinian’ Weihenstephaner Doppelbock and ‘Vitus’ Weihenstephaner Weizenbock. Hot German pretzels are available in regular or giant sizes.

tunes and women in dirndls (traditional German dresses) make the rounds. Fridays through Sundays, many guests kick back with flights of brew samples (with varieties like the Paulaner Pils, Kaiserhof Kölsch, ‘Vitus’ Weihenstephaner Weizenbock and ‘Korbinian’ Weihenstephaner Dopplelbock) and snack on breads and pretzels. The authenticity of the dining experience carries over to the cuisine, created from family recipes. There’s the juicy-fleshed Roast Duck with wine-based Madeira sauce on a bed of apples and raisins, which can be paired with sides such as potato pancake and the pickled red cabbage. Or there’s the

Venison Medallions cut from New Zealand Roe deer in a creamy peppercorn sauce with brandy and Pfifferlinge mushrooms, complemented with sides such as Spätzle (homemade German noodles), broccoli and a poached pear dressed with lingonberries. Chef/owner Peter Bolter, whose family has owned and operated Kaiserhof since it opened more than 30 years ago, cites among his favorites the Sea Schnitzel, made with calamari; and the Rostbraten, a steak covered with fried onions and au jus. Sunset dinners are offered 5-6:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; entrée options include Baked Meat Loaf with a mushroom-

wine sauce and Kasehahnchen, a cheesecoated chicken breast with paprika sauce. The children’s menu includes Knackwurst and Honey-Dipped Fried Chicken. Many people find the portions at Kaiserhof are quite sizable, but those who still have room for dessert may choose from confections such as the house-made Apple Strudel and Black Forest Cake. To fully experience Kaiserhof, Bolter recommends sitting in the biergarten. “There’s more options,” he explained, as diners in that section can order items from any menu. Those in the dining room are restricted to the dinner menu.

It’s hockey on horseback! San Diego Polo Club resumes season with Hawaiian-themed tailgate party BY ASHLEY MACKIN The San Diego Polo Club, home to one of the oldest organized sports in San Diego and now based in Rancho Santa Fe, will resume its 2013 Season on Aug. 18. Local resident Lorraine Slack, who has strong family ties to the Club, said she will be at the games because watching polo is “more fun than even the races at Del Mar.” The typical season runs June 9-Sept. 29, with players taking a break July 21-Aug. 18. Slack attended the July 21 game, which she called “riveting,” especially because the score kept getting tied. “It was two to two, then one side would score and the other side would catch up, four to four, eight to eight,” she said excitedly. The game eventually ended with a playoff. Slack’s nephew, Ron Bonaguidi, was named founder of the club when it changed its name to the San Diego Polo Club in 1995. Prior to that, it was known as the Rancho Santa Fe Polo Club. Ron’s wife, Krista, is a polo player. But that doesn’t begin to cover the history of the club. In its annual publication, “San Diego Polo” (2013 edition), its legacy is chronicled. In 1906, John D. Spreckels organized the first major polo tournament in California. Playing in Coronado (at the Spreckels’-founded Coronado Country Club), Spreckels flew in English Lords to play the American team. The Coronado Country Club attracted skilled players and viewers alike, and soon had three polo fields. The polo club moved to its current location in Rancho Santa Fe in 1987, where it now has more than 60 members, who play each other during weekly tournaments. It continues to draw talented players, like Krista Bonaguidi. “From a player’s perspective, the appeal (of polo) is the competition on the fields and above that, it’s the horses,” she said. “For me, it’s all about the horses. They are amazing animals and it’s really interesting that especially with the game of polo, the horses tend to be very competitive. The horses I play on love to play; you can tell. They follow the ball. When the umpires blow the whistle, my horses stop. They know the rules better than some players on the field.” Krista added that the horses add to the thrill of the game because “it’s not just watching an athlete make an amazing shot, it’s watching a player moving 30 miles an hour on top of an animal making that shot.” That, in addition to history

Polo 101 • The word polo is derived from the Tibetan word “pulu,” which means ball. • Polo is often referred to as hockey on horseback. • The object of the game is to hit the ball between the uprights (goal posts) at opposite ends of the fields. By doing so, a goal is scored. • A goal is worth one point and the team with the most goals scored at the end of the match is the winner. • Matches consist of either four or six, seven-minute chukkers (periods). • There is a break between each chukker, and a 10-minute break at halftime for the players to change horses. –Source: San Diego Polo 2013 edition • Polo is played in more than 60 countries and enjoyed by more than 50 million people each year. • Although they are not recognized as a distinct breed, polo ponies are truly unique horses that combine the traits of a number of breeds. In the United States, Thoroughbred horses are usually bred with Quarter horses to produce polo ponies. The Argentines cross Thoroughbred horses with their local Criollo horses. • Great polo history at: Photo above by Jon Clark of polo, makes attending a match as observer that much more fun, Krista said. The sport has worldwide roots. Early drawings, depicting what could be polo match, were found in Persia and dated 1546 AD. Slack said she heard that the game was once played in Egypt with human skulls as balls. The sport gained popularity in India, where modern rules were developed. When the

Carmel Valley woman’s boutiques bring designer fashions to North County BY KRISTINA HOUCK When Tobi Blatt moved from Beverly Hills to Carmel Valley 20 years ago, she had trouble finding stores that offered trendy clothing and accessories. Therefore, Blatt brought Los Angeles fashion to San Diego and opened her own boutique in 1997. She now has three locations in North County. “There were no places to really shop,” Blatt said. “There weren’t any boutiques. Department stores didn’t have what I needed, so I decided to create a niche. I was one of the first here that are still standing.” From designer jeans by J Brand Jeans, to shoes and sandals by Dolce Vita, Tobi Blatt boutiques offer a variety of men and women’s clothing, shoes and accessories. To stock her stores with the latest fashions, Blatt and her team travel to New York six times a year. “We’re always a couple steps ahead,” said 50-year-old Blatt. “We look at trend, color, design, fabrics and quality.” Fashion has always been a major part of Blatt’s life. Her father was a manufacturer of accessories, and her mother was a senior buyer for a chain of department stores. At 15 years old, Blatt began working in retail as a stocker at Camp Beverly Hills. She later went on to manage several stores in Los Angeles, including Fred Segal, Madison Los Angeles and Camp Beverly Hills. “I love fashion, style, fabrics,” Blatt said. “I love it all.” Business quickly grew after Blatt opened her first boutique in Carmel Valley. The 900-square-foot store expanded to 2,400 square feet. She later opened four additional locations in Carmel Mountain Ranch, Encinitas and Solana Beach. Still, owning a business hasn’t been easy, Blatt said. She faced more competition as other boutiques opened in San Diego. Her boutiques used to carry as many as 260 designers, but Blatt cut the list to 50 to set her store apart from the others. Like other small businesses, Tobi Blatt was also affected by the recession, and the Carmel Mountain Ranch and Encinitas locations were closed. With business once again booming, Blatt is currently re-

Photo by Kristina Houck modeling her flagship store located at 12750 Carmel Country Road in Carmel Valley. “I think we’re through the rough parts,” she said. “I’d like to be here for another 20 years — that’s my goal. I hope when I’m 70 I’m still selling my clothes to my friends.” In addition to offering high-quality products, Blatt said her business has been successful because she gives her customers honest feedback and she offers fashion advice. “I want people to walk out and love what they wear, or don’t buy it,” she said. “I don’t want you to go home and have tags hanging on your clothes. Clothes are expensive; they’re an investment.” Carmel Valley resident Marsha Berkson has been a customer of Tobi Blatt’s for 15 years. “It’s the personalized service, stylized service, that you

Tobi Blatt Fine Clothing. Photo by Kristina Houck get from her,” said Berkson, who noted her teenage sons shop at Tobi Blatt’s for her birthday and Mother’s Day. “She also carries a lot of unique brands that you don’t find in department stores. You won’t look like everybody else in the same outfit. She really understands her clientele and caters to that and buys accordingly thinking of them.” Reflecting on her business, Blatt said she never dreamed her original boutique would lead to other locations and a long list of repeat customers. “I always loved retail,” Blatt said. “I knew once I came here, as soon as I landed here, I had a lot of opportunity. “I’m so glad I made the leap of faith. Some things have a way of working themselves out.” Tobi Blatt is located at the Carmel Country Plaza in Carmel Valley: 12750 Carmel Country Rd., San Diego, 92130; 858-509-5949.

Del Mar native flourishing in acting, musical career

Ashley Fox Linton Courtesy photo

BY KRISTINA HOUCK From Cygnet Theatre’s “Sweeney Todd” to The York Theatre’s “Flambe Dreams,” Ashley Fox Linton has starred in a variety of stage productions on both coasts. Still, the former Del Mar resident remembers her local roots. Linton’s first public performance was for her kindergarten class at Santa Fe Christian School in Solana Beach. After forgetting to bring her Care Bear for show and tell, the 5-year-old sang “Somewhere Out There” from “An American Tale.” Impressed with her voice, Linton’s teacher had her sing for every classroom. “I remember being nervous in front of the big third graders, but my teacher took me around and made me sing for every single room,” Linton said. “I thought, ‘Wow, OK. Maybe this is something I’m good at.’ I enjoyed it.” Although Linton’s parents encouraged her creativity, they weren’t aware she had been performing at school until she sang at an assembly. Linton said she didn’t tell her parents because she was afraid they would be upset she forgot her homework. After her parents discovered her passion for performing, Linton began taking acting classes at San Diego Junior Theatre, where she performed for 10 years. “I think I just really naturally expressed myself that way and that was never

Her father works in commercial real estate but plays piano and guitar. “They were always very encouraging. I think it just developed from there.” In addition to her work at San Diego Junior Theatre, Linton landed a number of roles in productions at San Diego State University, The Theatre in Old Town, San Diego Opera, The Old Globe and La Jolla Playhouse, including Eliza Doolittle in “My Fair Lady” and Lady Larkin in “Once Upon a Mattress.” Linton headed east to earn her degree in musical theater at the Boston Conservatory and also studied at Berklee College of Music. Since her days at Santa Fe Christian School, Linton has appeared in a number of productions, including “Titanic,” “Sweeney Todd” and “Evita.” She also toured the U.S. and Canada with the musicals “Les Miserables” and “Wicked.” “I’ve always wanted to be in “Les Miserables,” so doing that show was just an incredible experience,” she said. “It was really the realization of a childhood dream.” Another dream came true for Linton when she released her debut album, “First Real Love,” in 2012. Described as “1970s throwback pop,” Linton co-produced the album with King Kozmo Records. “It was a really neat experience because all of the songs are originals,” Linton said. “They’re all songs that were never recorded before, and most of them were never heard before.” After living in New York for nearly a decade, Linton moved to Los Angeles last year. Recently, she played Betty Schaefer in Musical Theatre West’s “Sunset Boulevard” at the Karen and Richard Carpenter Theatre in Long Beach. “It was tremendous,” Linton said. “The cast was just phenomenal. We just bonded so much. The audience responded so well to it. “I’m definitely going to have post-show blues until I start another project.” Linton has several concert gigs lined up while she’s auditioning for new roles. In addition to recording new music, she hopes to land a role on a sitcom that’s filmed in front of a live studio audience. “I love it all,” she said. “The medium doesn’t really matter to me. It’s the material that I get excited about. “The thing I enjoy most is really moving an audience. I also really enjoy connecting with other actors. The people you meet and work with, and what you experience together, is unlike any other business. I’m so thankful for it.” For more information about Linton, visit

Calling young Choristers: St. Nicholas Choristers seeks new voices Interested in giving your child a better grounding in music, and a classical performing experience? The St. Nicholas Chorister program, part of the music program at Del Mar’s St Peter’s Episcopal Church, will begin its new season this Sept. 4. Since many local schools have cut or drastically reduced their existing music programs, the Chorister program is perfect for those who would like solid music instruction and to develop lifelong music and leadership skills. The St. Nicholas Choristers are comprised of 16 boys and girls and is open to children ages 7 to 16, regardless of music experience or religious affiliation. (One catch: Boys must have “unchanged” voices.) The program follows the Voice for Life chorister training scheme and is affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music, America ( The aim of this program is to bring children together in a nurturing community and challenge them to develop their personal, leadership and musical talents to their fullest potential. The choir’s repertoire focuses on the great choral repertoire ranging from William Byrd and Thomas Tallis to Benjamin Britten, and everything in between. If you are interested, prospective choristers and parents are asked to schedule a meeting with Ruben Valenzuela, St. Peter’s Director of Music, prior to the first rehearsal. Registration fees are as follows: $100 per child per semester (September-December and January-June), with a discount for siblings of $50. Please note that there are choral scholarships available for those needing assistance. During the season, the choristers regularly sing at Choral Eucharist on Sunday morning, as well as Choral Evensong on a semi-regular basis (held on the first Sunday of the month at 5 p.m.) Additional opportunities include caroling at the annual Del Mar Village Holiday festival, visits to Emeritus Assisted Living, Del Mar and singing Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols in late December. The first rehearsal will be in the St. Peter’s Music Room on Wednesday, Sept. 4, from 4 p.m.-6 p.m., with a snack break. Regular rehearsals will be on Wednesdays at the same time and place.

Free Mobile App gives away ‘30 Dates in 30 Days’ to ‘local, deserving parents’ “What do you want to do?” is the universal question every couple, casual dater, or group of friends ask. With the launch of Details Matter, that universal question now has potentially several hundred unique and creative answers. The app provides ideas for fun date activities throughout San Diego and is available for free download on both iPhone and Android mobile devices. San Diego resident and entrepreneur Mark Wills, and his team of developers, created Details Matter after realizing there was no other resource designed exclusively to help couples, friends and casual daters come up with unique, fun date ideas, based on their individual preferences such as location, interests, and budget. “When did dinner become the only dating activity?” says Wills. “There are so many engaging and unique ideas out there. Our goal is to make this the month of the anti-dinner-and-moviedate nights.” The heart of Details Matter is its dating idea news feed that gives users real-time access to great local date ideas and relevant offers that pertain to their specific dating preferences. Users can browse through the news feed to get date ideas by following what other local daters are posting. They can also return the favor by posting and sharing dates that they have discovered. To prove its utility, Details Matter teamed up with local mommy blogger, La Jolla Mom, to choose deserving parents and allow them to go on a date of a lifetime. Throughout the next 30 days, 30 couples will be chosen to embark on such dates as skydiving at

SkyDive San Diego, private sunset cruise by Zolna Yacht Charters, and even a Temecula balloon tour. Couples’ stories range from couples who have not seen each other in over a year due to military service to heartbreaking stories of having children with medical complications. All dates are provided by San Diego businesses and are of no cost to the couples. “Our region has so much to do,” says Wills. “Our 30 dates in 30 days campaign will help bring out the adventurous side in parents who want to try new things that go beyond dinner and a movie, yet don’t have the means to do so.” From a business standpoint, Details Matters’ advertising is truly targeted. A proprietary algorithm understands what users are posting on the news feed, and the types of date ideas and special offers they want to receive from participating advertisers. Details Matter then provides different users with date ideas and special offers from advertisers that specifically match their individual preferences. Couples may submit their story to: contact@besocialpr. com. To learn more about Details Matter, visit or connect with Details Matter on Facebook and Twitter.


Experts to discuss ‘Early Detection of Breast Cancer and the Recurrence of Breast Cancer’ at special event Please mark your calendars for Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. to attend a very special evening sponsored by the Linked by Lynn support group. The topic will be “Early Detection of Breast Cancer and the Recurrence of Breast Cancer.” The event will be held at St. Therese of Carmel Catholic Church in Carmel Valley and is open to the entire community. So many breast cancers do not show up on a mammogram and are found at a later stage. Breast density not only makes a developing cancer hard to detect, but recently it was determined this dense tissue significantly increases a woman’s risk. Dr. Richard Reitherman, a nationally recognized radiologist, will present a new method of evaluating a woman’s breast cancer risk, as well as outline appropriate surveillance methods, even in young women. Additional detection methods will be discussed by dedicated breast surgeons Dr. Jane Kakkis and Dr. Michele Carpenter. A Q&A session will take place, following the physician presentations. Spread the word to your family, friends, daughters and co-workers about this evening. All are welcome and the event is free. St. Therese of Carmel Catholic Church is located at 4355 Del Mar Trails Rd, San Diego (Carmel Valley), 92130. — Lynn Larkin Flanagan, 16-anda-half-year breast cancer survivor and relishing every new day!

Get ready to love Rosencrantz and Guildenstern BY DIANA SAENGER LET’S REVIEW! Shakespeare’s diverse work on tragedies, comedies and classic drama has long been rearranged and newly interpreted by many directors and writers. British playwright Tom Stoppard’s take on “Hamlet” — “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” winner of a 1968 Tony Award — is one such treat, and you can see it as part of The Old Globe’s 2013 Shakespeare Festival, this summer in Balboa Park. It’s a bizarre farce that takes a little settling into, but once its path is clear, be ready for laugh after laugh. Jay Whittaker as Guildenstern and John Lavelle as Rosencrantz, are exceptional as two friends charged with delivering a letter about Hamlet to King Claudius at his castle in Elsinore. The play begins with the pair alone on stage playing a game of coin toss. Guildenstern can’t understand why every coin turns up heads. He tries to reason this with several explanations, which Rosencrantz can’t follow, and soon the two might as well be speaking Greek as nothing makes sense. It’s like “Who’s on First?” the comedy routine

“Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead” — winner of a 1968 Tony Award — is part of The Old Globe’s 2013 Shakespeare Festival this summer at Balboa Park. by everything, including trying to understand what the other is saying, and at times, which one of them is he and not the other? When a traveling circus of Tragedian misfits suddenly engulfs them, bewilderment reigns supreme as they find themselves mixed up in the troupe’s production. Tragedian Player (Sherman Howard) is intent on resurrecting memories of the production of “Ham-

let,” but in very odd ways. His crew is as confused as Guildenstern and Rosencrantz are in trying to figure out what they’re watching. Player King explains that his troupe works inside out – they do what they would do backstage on the stage and what they would do on the stage, backstage; a metaphor for the entire play. There are mildly (and wildly) amusing moments between the characters. In scenes where Rosencrantz is trying to lick his toe (but failing because he can’t reach it), I dare you to keep a straight face. But that’s topped when he insists Guildenstern do it for him. Just learning the lines for this play was certainly a challenge, but Whittaker and Lavelle excel in every difficult moment of their portrayals. Someone should feature them in their own comedy show. The rotating cast members of the Festival players who portray the Tragedians are terrific in creating a surprising and hilarious time — especially Stephen Hu as Player Queen Alfred. Under brilliant direction by Adrian Noble, the actors and shenanigans in this production are a rare treat.

‘Horsemen of all Ages’ auction Note: See photos for this event on page B12. BY LESLIE CARTER Owners and trainers of thoroughbred racehorses go to auctions to chase their dreams — to find that Kentucky Derby winner, or an equine immortal to outshine Secretariat or Man o’ War. At the Del Mar Hilton on Saturday, July 27, there was an auction dedicated to fulfilling the dreams of kids who were born into the backstretch life of the racing world, but want to emerge into the adult world armed with college degrees. The human contingent of the Del Mar Thoroughbred community stood up, some of them on an auction runway, to turn these dreams into reality. The “Horsemen of All Ages & Bachelor Auction,” put together by Kentucky-based Race for Education and the Edwin J. Gregson Foundation founded in Southern California, raised about $50,000 to send children of outriders, assistant trainers and other backstretch workers on to higher education. As in an auction of racing prospects, the volunteers offered for bidding were listed by hip numbers. Of the 16 hips listed in the program, two were local. Restaurateur Jeffrey Strauss (hip #9) of the Pamplemousse Grille in Solana Beach, and entrepreneur and successful horseplayer Christian Hellmers, a Rancho Santa Fe resident. Strauss has been involved in charitable efforts in San Diego County for many years, dating back to the opening of his Pamplemousse Grille in 1996. He has included non-profits in his business plan since learning his craft in New York and working for Glorious Food. The causes he has supported and catered for include Casa de Amparo, San Diego Humane Society, Salk Institute, North Coast Repertory Theatre, Patrons of the Prado, and Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA. He also invests time and money aiding Navy Seals. Because Pamplemousse sits just across Via de la Valle from the Del Mar Racetrack, the chef has become an enthusiastic supporter of non-profits that surround thoroughbred horse racing. Strauss became friends with jockey Chris McCarron soon after opening Pamplemousse. McCarron was one of the founders of the Don MacBeth Memorial Jockey Fund for injured jockeys and exercise riders. For

years the MacBeth fund’s August fundraiser was held at Pamplemousse, with jockeys as waiters and with Tim Conway, Bob Newhart or another friend as the entertainment. The MacBeth Fund is retired, but Strauss works with the Gregson Foundation, and supports California Retirement Management Account (CARMA), a charitable 501(c) (3) organization created to raise money for retired California racehorses. Strauss is also deeply into horse ownership, with a partnership group called Donkey Island, a share in a first place finisher on July 31 named Domonation, and interests in two stallions standing in Kentucky. One of those stallions is The Pamplemousse, who had a brief but brilliant racing career in 2009. Other partnerships involve his brother Bill, who came into the area first, and is an owner of a Breeder’s Cup winner. While accepting the Gregson request to be auctioned, Jeffrey Strauss was apprehensive—“I didn’t want to get up on stage and feel like an $8,000 claimer.” But his girlfriend, Mayo Osman, stood ready to rescue him from embarrassment. The bidding was up to $3,000, when Mayo jumped in with the winning bid of $3,300. He’s now waiting for Mayo to inform him of her plans for the date, and he hopes she “plans something fun.” Christian Hellmers, second place winner for two years in the largest real money handicapping tournament, the Breeders Cup Betting Challenge (combined winnings for 2011-2012 were over $270,000), had the scariest job of the evening. He was hip #1. He made a spirited showing and a racing partnership of four women, at least one a Del Mar real estate agent, prevailed. Hellmers promised to make up the $500 bid with his superior handicapping skills during a weekend afternoon in his box at the track. “We’ll have a fun...time,” he promised. Trevor Denman, Del Mar’s track announcer and Frank Mirahmadi, a racecaller at Oaklawn Park in Arkansas were the team of auctioneers. According to Gregson President Jenine Sahadi, retired trainer and Del Mar resident, “One hundred percent of our money from fundraisers goes directly into the scholarship fund.”

The Mystery of Color Therapy It may well be that the great mystery in life is ourselves and the path to becoming whole and centered in our deeper self is our true purpose. As we reveal this mystery it moves us toward expressing our true being in the world without the confines of self-interest but in the context of ourselves and community. To communicate to this higher nature requires a language. The universal language through which nature speaks is color. Color is the multifaceted visual component of light. Living beings take in and give out light. Sages and teachers from all cultures reference a human radiance that each of us possess. To those with extraordinary visual acuity this radiance is seen as a field of colors. The most common name in our Western world for this color field that surrounds the physical body is our aura. In Greek, the description of the field of electrical or magnetic energies surround the periphery of the body is soma, the living energies. How far back in civilizations color has been used for healing is not clear but it has been well developed in these times in holistic health. One of the most advanced systems of color therapy is Aura-Soma. Aura-Soma uses a system of color selection of various formulations chosen by the person by visual appeal and correspondence. The formulations contain oils infused with light and color from plants, minerals and homeopathic substances that can be applied to the body to replete the aura, which in turn through a language of subconscious communication, allow ourselves to explore and accept new meaning to our experience. Through the help of a trained guide meaning can be connected to the bottle to help us understand more about these subtle energy realms.

Lady of Fifty wins Grade I $300,000 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes Lady of Fifty raced near the back of the pack for most of the Grade I $300,000 Clement L. Hirsch Stakes on Aug. 3 at Del Mar, but then overtook her rivals in the stretch and won by one-and-a-half lengths. She was followed by More Chocolate in second and Byrama in third. Last year’s victor, Include Me Out, was sent to the post as the favorite but finished eighth in the nine-horse field. The 4-year-old Lady of Fifty, with Corey Nakatani in the saddle, covered the 1 1/16 miles on the Polytrack in 1:42.96. She is conditioned by Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer, and is owned by Hollendorfer and George Todaro. The win has qualified Lady of Fifty for a start in the Breeders’ Cup Ladies Classic in November; the Hirsch was a “Win and You’re In” event in the Breeders’ Cup’s Challenge Series.

Map museum hosts California collection by legendary artist Jo Mora BY LINDA HUTCHISON California’s colorful history and geography are alive and well-illustrated (and on display for all to enjoy) thanks to an exhibit at the Map and Atlas Museum of La Jolla. The museum has gathered 14 maps created by California artist Jacinto “Jo” Mora from 1927 to 1949 and will display them through early December. The maps – or cartes – as Mora called them, are vibrant and light-hearted. They reflect Mora’s love of California and his background as a book illustrator and cartoonist. The majority of Mora’s maps in the collection depict California, including the entire state, the Monterey Peninsula, Yosemite, Catalina, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The San Diego map was commissioned in 1928 by city philanthropist George Marston to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his department store, which first opened at 5th Avenue and State Street (and was sold to The Broadway in 1961). Visitors to the exhibit can purchase a reproduction of the San Diego map. The idea for the Mora exhibit was developed by

Richard Cloward, director of the Map & Atlas Museum of La Jolla, points to the Walt Disney Studios illustrated on Jo Mora’s colorful map of Los Angeles. PHOTO/LINDA HUTCHISON museum founder Michael Stone and museum director Richard Cloward. Both retired U.S. Naval officers and avid cartography collectors, they have worked together since the museum opened two years ago. “We already had five Mora works, which people were very drawn to,” explained Cloward. “Mike wanted to complete the collection. “People are comfortable with Mora’s maps because they are user-friendly, welcoming and whimsical. They appeal to people of all ages, adults and children. They are about California and San Diego and tell a

whole history … and Mora was an interesting person.” The son of a South American artist father and a French intellectual mother, Mora was born in Uruguay in 1876. The family immigrated to the United States and Mora grew up in New York and New Jersey. His brother Luis became a wellknown artist and teacher on the East Coast. Mora worked as book illustrator and newspaper cartoonist in New York and Boston. But something about the West called to Mora and he moved to the central coast of California in 1903. He spent two years living with the Hopi and Navajo

Luxury Landscaping in Rancho Santa Fe By Steve Jacobs In Rancho Santa Fe we have a unique environment with perfect weather, beautiful beaches, stunning views and attractive architecture. This rare combination is the reason for the area’s outstanding popularity, not only in San Diego, but nationally as well. Although housing values were recently driven downward due to the economy, investors see the San Diego real estate market as a huge opportunity to build a portfolio of the highest-end properties, to improve properties, and to rent or resell them for the most lucrative return on their investment. When it comes to luxury property, one of the primary distinctions of any given estate is the quality landscaping that surrounds the home. For many homeowners, it’s precisely the distinguished look of luxury landscaping that can make all the difference in how real estate is perceived, especially when it comes to the quick sale of the property on an active listing. Most of the existing homes on the market (especially in the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe) haven’t had any architectural or interior upgrades in many years, and earlier renovation choices were based on the theory “bigger, not better.” Likewise, previous architectural upgrade decisions were based on a lower price per square foot material, and likely installed by unskilled labor. Things have rapidly changed due to a rising interest in the San Diego market. Investors and homeowners are now seeing the value of incorporating quality into these homes after seeing positive financial returns from their investments.

Why should homeowners consider upgraded landscaping? Homeowners who renovate homes with quality landscaping gain satisfaction that their dollars are well-spent. The aesthetic quality improvement is appropriate for the home and its location. Now that many homeowners are purchasing with cash instead of borrowed funds, more and more buyers are committed to spending their lifetime in these homes, making a dream estate a true reality. The types of materials being specified (natural materials vs. synthetic or manufactured) can make all the difference in luxury landscaping. To do it right, natural materials are best implemented using skilled expert craftsmen. These days, homeowners are better educated and care more that workers on their property are licensed, insured, and bonded. For added security some even require their construction team pass a vigorous background investigation. Now more than ever luxury landscaping is at the forefront of estate homes. In the past, landscapes were more of an afterthought. Big, showy amenities that included large tropical trees, deep green expansive lawns and over the top seasonal color were irrigated with private well water. Today, though, there seems to be more sensitivity to using drought tolerant plantings (succulents and natives), reduced lawns, drip irrigation, and solar-heated swimming pools while still preserving the luxury look and feel of quality landscaping. …There’s more to this story at and

Indians in Arizona, photographing and drawing them, learning their language, and working as an interpreter for the U.S. Army. He traveled up and down California on horseback, retracing the route of the Spanish missionaries on the King’s Highway, visiting the missions, and writing about and illustrating the history of the early Spanish settlers (Californios) and the Spanish vaqueros, or cow herders, who were the forerunners of the American cowboys. Mora is sometimes called the “Renaissance Man of the West” because, in addition to drawing maps, writing, and illustrating, he also created many murals and public works and was a well-known sculptor, who worked in wood, stone and bronze. In 1925, he designed the commemorative half dollar for the California Diamond Jubilee. In San Francisco, he created the Cervantes sculpture in Golden Gate Park and the Bret Hart Memorial on the wall of the Bohemian Club. He painted wall murals for Julia Morgan’s Los Angeles Examiner building and created a WPA bas-relief sculpture for a King City high school building. He died in

1947 just before his 71st birthday in Monterey, where many of his works are now on permanent display at the Maritime Museum. In La Jolla, his current exhibit also includes two pieces of sculpture with a Western theme, “Twister” and “Straight Up and Scratching,” a children’s book he wrote and illustrated, and a poster called “Evolution of the Cowboy,” which was used as cover art for The Byrd’s “Sweetheart of the Rodeo” album in 1968. According to Cloward, Mora was meticulous about keeping records, so that has made the job of collecting and curating his works easier. “We know where every copy is,” he said. The Map & Atlas Museum of La Jolla is the only one of its kind west of the Mississippi that is free and open to the public. In addition to offering regular viewing hours, the museum offers group tours and welcomes students. Assistant Director Rosalind Gibson handles the educational side of running the museum. Recently the San Diego French American school visited and were so inspired they are creating their own carte – in French, of course.

Lux Art Institute to feature variety of unique artists in 2013-14 season BY DIANE WELCH The line-up of artists for the Encinitas-based Lux Art Institute’s Season VII was announced recently by Lux Founding Director Reesey Shaw. The five artists for 2013-2014 are: Matthew Cusick (in studio Sept. 5-Oct. 5, on exhibit through Oct. 26) Another Texas-based artist, Cusick — a collage strategist — creates intricate works formed from torn paper fragments inlaid into acrylic on the picture plane, like paint on the canvas. His rich imagery, that pulls in the past from a source of long-discarded maps and textbooks, includes timeless waterscapes, portraiture, and modern landscape. While in residency, Cusick will use the nearby North County coastal beaches, lagoons and surf as his inspiration for a large-scale waterscape. Melora Kuhn (in studio Nov. 5-Dec. 8, on exhibit through Dec. 28) Kuhn’s portraiture examines issues of identity, history and personal versus public spheres. Her dream-like interpretations use painting, sculpture and installation to explore classical narratives expressed through stately figures that depict both inner and out-

that are both humorous and macabre. Poverty, alienation and social injustice are frequent themes in his collages that incorporate torn receipts, marble dust, and wall paper. Reclaimed taxidermy, adorned with sequins, beads and buttons, suggest whimsy with dignity. Kenney will create a multimedia piece based on the painting of the Tower of Babel using re-purposed items from local thrift stores and flea markets.

‘Pappa,’ a reclaimed taxidermy piece by Marcus Kenney er realms. She often places these figures in incongruent backdrops. Kuhn, a graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, who also attended Scuola Lorenzo di Medici, Florence, Italy in 1990, will create mixed-media portraits in the Lux studio using sheets of fabriano rossaspina, gesso and unbleached titanium paint. Marcus Kenney (in studio Jan 9- Feb. 8, on exhibit through Mar. 8) Trained in photography at Savannah College of Art and Design, and film at the University of Louisiana, Georgia-based Kenney produces multimedia works

Jarmo Mäkilä (in studio Mar 20- April 12, on exhibit through May 24) Brought to Lux from his native Finland, through a partnership within the European Union, Mäkilä creates large-scale autobiographical oil paintings that reflect his personal childhood memories interwoven with Finnish mythology. Ritualistic scenes of boys playing cruel games that involve hanging cats, shooting guns, and beating drums, are recurring subjects. Each day while in residence, Mäkilä will create a sculpture of a small boy culminating in a surreal procession that will lead to the studio. His pieces are held in many European museum collections including Germany, France, Sweden and Finland.

Beverly Penn (in studio June 5- July 5, on exhibit through July 26) Closing out Season VII, is another Texas-based artist. Penn, a professor in the Department of Art and Design at Texas State University, is a sculptor who uses weeds as the source material for her intricately crafted bronze sculptures. The fragile balance between nature and the manufactured environment is represented in her large-scale delicate sculptures that capture even the tiniest filaments of the weeds. She will transform the Lux studio into a workshop to cast and solder her pieces based on the native plants unique to the Lux campus and North County environs. Lux Art Institute is redefining the museum experience to make art more accessible to everyone. Viewers see the artistic process firsthand, engaging with internationally recognized artists in a working studio environment. Visit to learn more. Lux is located at 1550 S. El Camino Real, Encinitas, CA 92024

Handicaps are issued to most fairly match people in play. Krista and others will play at the Aug. 18 opener. For the season pickup, the

San Diego Polo Club will host an island-inspired party, “Aloha Sunday,� during which Kimo Huddleston of Hawaii will demonstrate hitting techniques and explain the rules as an introduction to polo. His wife, Stephanie Huddleston, will perform a hula dance routine. All the food will have island flair. The catered food found on Sundays helps draw “an

amazing crowd,� Krista said. The public is invited to watch polo matches on Saturdays, but there is no food, bar or spectacle, such as that of a Sunday match. Spectators range in age from in their 20s to those in their 70s and beyond, enjoying the food, the bar, and the overall scene. “The community is realizing that polo is fantastic,� she said.

BY KAREN BILLING A day spa is now one of the many amenities offered at the newly renovated The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The Spa at The Inn opened officially on July 12 and on its very first day a bridal party gave the facility a test-run. Spa Director Brenda Martin said a successful opening weekend followed, with a good mix of both out-oftown guests and residents. “I think it completes the experience,� Martin said of the addition of The Spa, a feature that The Inn never had before. She said more travelers these days are looking for a spa at their hotels as a place to relax on vacation or get some much-needed pampering. For locals it becomes a nice amenity right in their backyard to come with friends or to unwind on their own. Planning for The Spa began last year when JMI Realty purchased The Inn for $28 million. The owners infused $12 million into the hotel to restore its luster, blending tradition with upscale amenities. The update included renovated rooms, new furniture throughout, a new entrance, refreshed lawn landscaping and the new Morada restaurant, which opened in July. The 3,000-square-foot spa took over space that was formerly offices and three hotel rooms. It has its own private entrance behind the hotel lobby. The Spa has five treatment rooms, one of them a

couple’s suite. In a separate area off The Spa lobby there are four nail stations; two for manicures and two for pedicures. Visitors await treatments in two co-ed spaces — one indoor and one outdoor. Inside is a fireplace filled with candles, tufted couches and relaxing chaise lounges with complimentary fruit, tea and spa waters, such as cucumber mint. On the outdoor patio there are loungers, cabanas and places to enjoy a lunch. Men’s and women’s locker rooms are stocked with Frette luxury Italian linen towels and cozy robes, as well as all the toiletries and PrivĂŠ Hair product you could ever need. Currently there are 12 massage therapists, aestheticians and nail technicians on staff. It’s a small staff for an intimate setting that Martin promises will never feel crowded or impersonal. Martin has experience being the opening director of a new spa — she moved to San Diego from Las Vegas in 2007 to open the spa at The Grand Del Mar and was there until 2011 when she became the spa director at Paradise Point Resort and Spa at Mission Bay. Martin said they have done an amazing job with The Inn’s spa. “I feel like this is going to have to be the end of my spa career because nothing can compare to it,â€? Martin said. Instead of having a really big treatment menu with too many options that can overwhelm, Martin said they kept the core menu really simple with Swedish, deep tissue, men’s and maternity massage. The Country Blend Massage uses both warm stones and healing hands. With facials, the Nostalgia facial is “luxuriously powerful,â€? combining anti-aging technology that produces immediate results with serums and creamy moisturizers. The facial uses the NuFACE micro-current facial toning device, which adds a visible lift, photo light therapy softens lines and plumps the skin, and a decadent French Carita scrub made with macerated sunflower seeds and sweet almond oil that eliminates impurities and softens, nourishes and vitalizes. “As we designed each treatment what we kept going back to was asking what the purpose was for it. We wanted everything to be purposeful,â€? Martin said. As an example, with the Rancher Massage for men they kept in mind that men tend to be tighter in their hamstrings and legs. Martin said a typical massage starts at the neck, shoulders and back, and then moves to the legs,

which can cause the neck to tense up again as a therapist works on those tight areas, undoing all the work they just did. Martin said when they created the protocol for the massage, they ensure that therapists start at the feet and work their way up to relieve tension in shoulders and back. Understanding that hair loss is an issue for many men, they also included nettle oil in the scalp massage as nettle stimulates hair growth. “What makes us stand out is that we really thought about everything and how to make it purposeful,� Martin said. “I think The Spa is very different in this way.� Four times a year The Spa will have a menu shake up with seasonal menu items, “from the Ranch,� “From the Grove,� and “From the Coast.� With the seasonal menu, Martin said they took a hint from the restaurant Morada, using the same “farm to table,� local and fresh philosophy. “We will have what’s indigenous, fresh, what’s happening right now,� Martin said, noting, as examples, an orange blossom facial and an aloe and emu oil wrap that combats pain from sunburn or exhaustion from the summer heat. On the current seasonal menu is a watermelon-basil manicure and pedicure, which includes a sparkling citrus soak for your skin, a watermelon basil and vodka sugar scrub, and a freshwhipped shea butter massage with live strawberry fruit cells. Guests who opt for this treatment get a watermelon cocktail to enjoy during their pampering. The Spa is now offering a day spa package, which includes the choice of any two 60- minute massage or facial treatments, lunch for one in the outdoor spa courtyard and complimentary access to The Inn’s private pool and fitness area. To book a package or treatment, visit or call (858) 381-8255. The Spa is open Monday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

National Banana Split Day has lots of appeal The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN One would think that national holidays are reserved for commemorating momentous events. However, in our foodie culture even s’mores and banana splits are feted with a national holiday — they share the limelight on Aug. 10. If we are to go ape over the banana split, let’s at least do it in style. I propose creating an adult version with an assortment of liqueurs. For the kids, a combination of their favorite toppings works. The person laying a solid claim to creating the original, iconic banana split was a 23-year-old pharmacy apprentice and soda jerk named David Evans Strickler, who made tricked-out sundae combinations at Tassel Pharmacy in Latrobe, Pennsylvania to impress the college coeds. Strickler’s banana split, a three scoop (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry) extravaganza flanked by a whole banana sliced lengthwise, smothered in chocolate and strawberry sauces, blanketed in whipped cream, sprinkled with chopped nuts, and topped with a maraschino cherry, cost a whopping 10 cents in 1904; twice the price of a regular sundae. Despite the cost, it swelled in popularity among the student body at Saint Vincent College, then by word-of-mouth to ice cream lovers across the land. (It even became the signature dish of Walgreens pharmacy in the Chicago area). Strickler, the intrepid entrepreneur, also needed a vessel to impressively display his edible Picasso, so he elicited a glassmaker to create the classic “banana boat” that is still used today for serving banana splits.

Inspired Top Bananas • Going Bananas: Try this bananaphile’s bliss with banana ice cream and sliced bananas topped with banana caramel syrup, banana chips and banana flavored whipped cream. • Elvis Pelvis Split: Rock ‘n’ roll with a combo of bananas and peanut butter ice cream smothered in a warm peanut sauce. • The Aloha Spirit: This tropical twist envelopes vanilla bean ice cream with pineapple syrup, toasted coconut shavings and chunks of salted macadamia nuts. •Tropical Treat: Caribbean-style split swaps out the banana for fried plantains (a starchy, low sugar member of the banana family that is usually pan fried). Add some scoops of coconut ice cream and top with mango, papaya or lime syrups or purees and a dollop of whipped coconut cream. • Ciao Down: Make an Italian split with assorted gelato scoops, a drizzle of warm, melted Nutella sauce, and sprinkling of toasted hazelnuts. • X-Rated Banana: This drunken split will give you a pleasant buzz when you drizzle the espresso ice cream (or any other high octane flavor) with an assortment of liqueurs including banana schnapps or Crème de bananes, Kahlua coffee liqueur or Godiva chocolate liqueur. • Guilt-free Split: Make it a healthier one with organic bananas, frozen yoghurt or non-dairy treats like iced almond or rice milk or sorbet, fresh fruit toppings (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, sliced nectarines), toasted pecans, almonds or walnuts and a frugal dollop of organic whipped cream (if you must). Boons of Banana Splits If the banana split is created with mindful common sense, including calorie, cholesterol and sugar consciousness, it will have some nutritional health benefits, such as, a load of the essential mineral potassium to maintain the salt and water

balance in the body, calcium for bone health, immune boosting Vitamins B-6 and C, Vitamin A to dial up eye health, and dietary fiber. Super Split The world’s most behemoth banana split was painstakingly created in May 2013 in Selinsgrove, Pa., as a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. It stretched five miles long and was comprised of 5,000 gallons of ice cream, 26,400 bananas and the same number of maraschino cherries, 500 gallons of Hershey’s chocolate syrup, 1,000 gallons of strawberries and crushed pineapple, 15,000 ounces of whipped cream and 700 pounds of crushed peanuts. Tums anyone?

GLOBE continued from page B1 boys and four girls: John Heminges and Henry Condell, the actors in Shakespeare’s theater company, who gathered his plays for publication in one volume for the first time. I have a zillion questions about Shakespeare that they could answer better than anyone; Philip Roth, my favorite author and hilarious; Bruce Springsteen, for obvious reasons; Hilary Clinton, the most interesting figure in contemporary politics and, apparently, awesome at a dinner party; Hallie Flanagan Davis, the godmother of the American institutional theater movement; Anne Hathaway (Shakespeare’s wife, not the actress: although I’ve had dinner with the latter and she’s great); and my grandmother, Tillie, whom I miss, and who would love that party. What are you currently reading? I have about 40 plays on my iPad and I’m always in the middle of three or four at a time. These are plays I want to produce at the Globe or plays by writers

whose work I want and need to know. They leave me little time to read for pleasure, but also on my iPad I have “1948” by the recently deceased Israeli novelist Yoram Kaniuk. It’s a memoir of his time fighting for Israeli independence, but it’s much more than that. Kaniuk is impossible to describe in a sentence, but to me his writing is the closest thing I’ve ever seen to jazz music in literary form. Amazing. What is it that you most dislike? Hypocrisy. Makes my blood boil. What is your mostprized possession? My wife and I have a policy that for each new thing we bring into our house, we get rid of one old thing. It’s not a philosophical idea, it’s survival: When you live in a small New York apartment, as we did for a very long time, there’s just no space. Clutter is the enemy. So you have to take drastic measures. But the last thing I’d ditch is an 1804 facsimile copy of the “Shakespeare First Folio.” By that date, the original, printed in 1623, was already a rarity and a very expensive item only for collectors. So a

London publisher put out a modern duplicate: the first time that book was made widely available to general readers. It was given me by the Board of Classic Stage Company, the Off Broadway theater I used to run. I treasure it. What do you do for fun? Play with my kids. Nothing in the universe makes me happier than the sounds of their laughter. What is your motto or philosophy of life? When we got engaged, my wife gave me a card that said, “Every blade of grass has an Angel hovering over it, whispering ‘Grow, grow.’” It’s a quote from the Talmud. And it’s what our marriage has been about for 10 years. We all need that encouragement: someone to whisper in our ear, “Grow.” And we all should whisper it to others. What would be your dream vacation? Six months to travel the world’s great theater cities, watching the best artists transport me to unknown worlds.

Willis Allen Real Estate executives attend Inman News Real Estate Connect Conference in San Francisco Willis Allen Real Estate recently sent two of its management team members to the Inman News Real Estate Connect Conference in San Francisco. Bud Clark, executive vice president and managing broker, and Ashley McEvers, business development manager, were in attendance. Each year industry insiders attend Real Estate Connect to learn best practices and forge partnerships. The conference is produced by Inman News and draws thousands of attendees each year. “It’s such a great event, and a wonderful way to connect with the best-of-the-best in global real estate,” notes Clark. “As we approach our 100-year anniversary as a brokerage, Willis Allen continues to look for ways to do innovate, and this conference offered a plethora of ideas.” Among the topics covered at this year’s event: •The visual nature of real estate, necessitating more photos and videos than ever before. •Agent-client communication. •Innovation in real estate, particularly with mobile technology. •Real estate and social media. •The specific requirements of foreign buyers. According to McEvers, the central takeaway was technology’s impact on the real estate profession. “As technology continues to evolve in miraculous ways, every industry – and especially real estate – is moving with it,” she says. “Technology creates even more new and innovative ways for real estate agents to do business and simplify the entire process for their clients.” After the conference, McEvers was among those invited to visit one of Willis Allen Real Estate’s San Francisco affiliates, McGuire Real Estate. There, she met Lauren Bensinger, director of client services and relocation, and CEO and owner, Charles Moore. McEvers says the group discussed how high demand and low inventory levels are a challenge each of them are facing. After an office tour, the group went on a property tour in the elite Pacific Heights neighborhood, which showcased some of the finest properties in the city.
