BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Volunteers have recently concluded a survey of Bernardo Mountain that has led to the cataloging of just over 200 plant species and 92 wildlife species. The mountain is located in the San Dieguito River Park. It is the tallest peak just north of Lake Hodges and west of Interstate 15. Among the fauna discovered there during 2016 were 10 mammals (big-eared woodrat, bobcat, California ground squirrel, desert cottontail rabbit, desert woodrat, coyote, mouse, raccoon, southern mule deer and striped skunk), five invertebrates (damselfly, harvester ant, stink or circus beetle, tarantula hawk and thistle down velvet ant), seven reptiles (California kingsnake, common side-blotched lizard, Belding’s orange-throated whiptail, granite spiny lizard, rosy boa, San Diego banded gecko and western

BY EMILY SORENSEN An Orange County school district leader with ties to San Diego is the top candidate to be the next Poway Unified School District superintendent. Emerging Tuesday night from a closed-door session, board members voted 3-2 to select Dr. Marian Kim-Phelps from an initial field of 91 candidates, including five finalists. Her contract will be brought up for approval, and her hiring made official, at the March 7 board meeting. Kim-Phelps is the Dr. Marian superintendent of the Kim-Phelps Westminster School District in Orange County. She has been an educator for 25 years and taught at the elementary and middle school level before serving as a vice principal and then an elementary school principal for 10 years. She was an area superintendent for four years, serving 32 K-12 schools and has been superintendent of Westminster School District for nearly four years. Her selection was backed by Board Members Michelle O’Connor-Ratcliff, T.J. Zane and Darshana Patel and opposed by Kimberley Beatty and Charles Sellers. Kim-Phelps is set to replace former Supt. John Collins, who was fired last July following allegations of collecting more than $345,000 in unauthorized and over payments from the district. Collins has denied the charges and the matter is being litigated. “I am honored to have been selected as the new superintendent for Poway Unified and I look forward to being part of a high quality team and district. I am committed to ensuring that our children not only have the skills necessary to be college and career ready, but have the skills needed to be successful in life. I look SEE PUSD, A13

The new Sharp Rees-Stealy medical center at 16899 W. Bernardo Drive in Rancho Bernardo will open on Tuesday.

New medical center opens Tuesday in RB It is the largest of Sharp Rees-Stealy’s 22 locations BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Sharp Rees-Stealy will close its Rancho Bernardo medical center tonight (Thursday) and reopen on Tuesday in its new 100,000-square-foot facility nearby. All departments will close at 5 p.m. Thursday so over the next several days everything can be moved from 16950 Via Tazon (the RB clinic since 2000) to the new building a half-mile away at 16899 W. Bernardo Drive. It is opening a month earlier than originally projected. Those who need to access urgent care during the transition are to seek care at its Sorrento Mesa facility at 10243 Genetic Center Drive, said Stacy Rayle, marketing specialist for Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Centers. Rayle said a ribbon cutting will be held on March 15 and a free community open house has been set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 22.

The latter will include tours, meet-and-greets with physicians, free health screenings, demonstrations of its FollowMyHealth online tool for patients to manage their healthcare, refreshments, family activities and entertainment. The urgent care department at Via Tazon has nine exam rooms, while the new one will have 18 exam rooms and one procedure room, Rayle said. Overall, the Rancho Bernardo medical center will expand from 57,400 square feet to 100,000 square feet. She said it will offer “the largest amount of square foot space for patient care of Sharp Rees-Stealy’s 22 locations.” It will also have free parking spaces for 500 vehicles via a garage and surface parking, and have space to add more physicians and services in coming years. Sharp Rees-Stealy has a 20-year SEE MEDICAL, A4

Local nature to be featured at new medical facility Award-winning photographer Aaron Chang commissioned for project BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK When patients go to the new Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Center in Rancho Bernardo the photographs surrounding them will be of likely-familiar views. Award-winning photographer Aaron Chang was commissioned to take photos of the Rancho Bernardo area so more than 200 of his photographs can be displayed throughout the 100,000-square-foot medical center. Chang, a Carlsbad resident, has been a San Diego Ambassador of the Arts since 2014. To complete the project he partnered with the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy and San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority. “I was blown away by the beauty I found in the hills and around the lakes of Rancho Bernardo,” Chang said. “All of my life, I’ve focused on the ocean and the beach. I was delighted to have the opportunity to turn my lens to this hidden gem. “The wildlife, native plants and mountain vistas had subtle, hidden beauty that I found refreshing,” Chang said. “I’m proud to present

FROM PHOTOGRAPHER, A3 though locals have taken numerous photos for themselves. He covered a 10-mile radius of the community, from pre-dawn to post-sunset over a six-week period last fall. “(Sharp Rees-Stealy) was specifically looking for nature photos because numerous studies have shown the psychological healing properties in photos of nature,” he said. The photographs vary from expansive landscape views of Lake Hodges and adjacent mountains at various times of day and evening to up close views of plants, birds and animals. Chang said initially the photos will only be viewable by visiting the medical center, but soon a large collection of them will also be available for viewing on his website at aaronchang.com. “We are excited to see the San Dieguito River Valley showcased in a way that promotes nature as being an important part of our overall health,” said Trish Boaz, executive director of the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy. “When Aaron approached us with the opportunity to work with him on this project,

we jumped at the chance to show him areas of the park that promote reflection, a sense of peace and an appreciation for the outdoors.” “Sharp Rees-Stealy chose Aaron Chang as the overwhelming favorite because of his tremendous talent and outstanding work capturing local beach and surf images,” said Stacy Rayle, marketing specialist for Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Centers. Chang has received international acclaim for his work that has been published around the world in hundreds of books and magazines. He is well-known for his surf photography, which has taken him to more than 50 countries. His work has also been selected for seven “Day in the Life” book projects, he was named one of the top five sports photographers by American Photographer magazine and has been featured on many television shows for PBS and other networks. He has two galleries, one in Solana Beach and another in downtown San Diego. When asked what he likes best about photography, Chang said, “Creating. I like showing people moments of beauty that is in front of them, but they do not take the time to look at.”

FROM MEDICAL, A3 lease at its new location. Last year officials said they planned to add at least 20 physicians to the current staff. Rayle said the new center will have around 140 employees, not counting physicians. “Growth of staffing levels over time will be based on the anticipated growth of the patients served at this location as well as the addition of physicians to this location over time,” Rayle said earlier this week. Sharp Rees-Stealy has been a medical provider in Rancho Bernardo since 1985. The new facility will allow for the continuation of all existing services plus addition of allergy and OB/GYN departments. The existing offerings include family medicine, pediatrics,

Starting on Tuesday, the center will be open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and its urgent care will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Rayle said after-hours health advice is available by phone through Nurse Connection, where patients can speak with a registered nurse from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 24 hours a day on weekends. Patients can also get same-day appointments with primary care doctors in RB.

As for notable features of the new facility, Rayle said the building’s design “incorporates features that are a part of our primary care transformation, which enhances efficiency in primary care design and workflow standards. For example, collocation is an element of this transformation where a physician and nurse work side-by-side at their desk (and) office space, allowing them to communicate more efficiently and effectively, especially when discussing patient issues prior to a visit. Overall, this design promotes greater efficiency and greater teamwork.” She said the primary care exam rooms have also been standardized, from room configuration to storage of equipment and supply management, which “promotes efficiency and high-quality care.”

Expert: Vigilance needed to prevent, detect cyber crime BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK The complexity of cyber crime and people’s financial vulnerabilities that can cause severe harm were detailed by an expert speaking in Rancho Bernardo on Tuesday. Sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Varnau, law enforcement coordinator for the District Attorney’s Computer and Technology Crime High Tech Response Team, said there are some easy steps people can take to lessen their identity theft potential when speaking at the Conservative Order for Good Government’s luncheon. “This is the world we are in today,” he said while showing a website that displays hacking attempts around the world. In the U.S. last year, $16 billion was stolen through identity theft of 15.4 million victims, he said. “There is a new case every two seconds,” Varnau said, adding if one’s credit is attacked it can take two years to fix. Company data breaches are on the rise, with 1,093 in the U.S. last year — an average of 21 per week — up from 783 cases in 2014, an average of 15 cases per week. Primary industries where this is occurring include the banking and medical/health sectors. Medical file breaches are on the rise because of the wealth of information, including social security number, credit card information along with name, address and date of birth. “Your personal information is stored in computers all over the world,” he said. “With that information (criminals) can do a lot of things.” It is up to companies to protect their clients’ information — among the recently hacked were Target, Sony Pictures, Home Depot, Anthem Blue Cross, Experian, T-Mobile, Ashley Madison and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management — and in this arena “there is nothing you can do about it because you can’t drop out of the system,” Varnau said. However, there is a lot people can do to prevent their personal devices from being hacked and prevent other types of fraud. For example, he spoke of “the internet of things,” such as home thermostats and other devices being controlled via computer for the convenience. But because the systems do not include security updates, he said once a hacker gets into them the home’s computer system also becomes vulnerable. “This particular area is exploding, so there will be billions of these (devices) connected to the current Wi-Fi in the home because they are connected to the internet,” he said, adding the proliferation of 5G capabilities creates an “electronic aura” of 15 to 30 feet around people and their devices. As for online fraud, there are many forms, including theft, false pretense, extortion and phishing. In most cases, he said the California penal code has not kept pace with what is happening, which means law enforcement must take existing laws for other situations and try to apply it to “all the bad behavior.” He warned against the use of sites such as Craigslist and eBay because of the many crimes that have resulted. For example, people trying to sell items like computers have been killed when meeting the “buyer” to conclude the transaction. Even the special meeting place recently set up near the San Diego Police Department’s Northeastern Division headquarters in Rancho Penasquitos is not a guarantee of safety. “On the first day it opened (there was) an assault,” he said. His advice for anyone trying to buy or sell

San Diego County Sheriff’s Sgt. Mark Varnau, law enforcement coordinator for the District Attorney’s Computer and Technology Crime High Tech Response Team, with COGG President Rose Marie Dishman. online: “Don’t spend any more money than you can afford to lose.” While people might have virus protection on their computers, Varnau said few have similar protections on their mobile phones and other portable devices, which are computers too. “This is where crooks are now working, in the mobile arena,” he said. Ways people can lessen their likelihood of being victimized include not placing outgoing mail payments in their mail boxes or in postal boxes at night after the final pickup. Paying online through secure, encrypted websites, such as their bank’s, and not setting up auto debit because it is “convenient, but not as secure.” He warned against clicking on shared links, such as cat videos, because they can be infected with a virus and not be coming from the supposed sender. Computers must be continuously backed up with file copies kept in a cloud or off-site because if hit with ransom ware or other malware it never truly comes off — despite paying the ransom to re-access one’s files. “Be ready to walk away from the machine,” Varnau said. “You can’t trust it. Get yourself a new computer.” He said seniors are “great targets” for scams, as are those looking for love. “Don’t believe anything you read online,” he said, adding even phone numbers might not accurately display the caller’s identity. “A phone number today has no value,” he said. “Don’t trust phone numbers or email addresses.” Varnau said teens and young adults are especially vulnerable to sextortion — where someone convinces them to email nude photos. “If you have young kids, don’t let them have phones in their room,” he said, recounting how a 10-year-old boy was convinced by someone online to take pornographic photos of his 2-year-old sister. Other advice included checking bank and credit card statements carefully each month. “Be diligent looking for what’s coming out of your account,” he said. In addition, use a cross-cut shredder instead of a strip-cut shredder; request annual credit reports, rotating in four-month cycles between Transunion, Equifax and Experian; physically destroy hard drives in addition to deleting their memory; consider freezing your credit until needing to open a new account; and have complex passwords that combine special characters, capitalization and punctuation. For more tips, he said websites such as idtheftcenter.org and SecuringOureCity.com can help.

Because I said so BY WENDY FAUCETT

Feelings, Part 2

C

hildren are the original drama factories. When they’re little, everything is a big deal, mostly because their frame of reference is limited. As their first teachers and leaders, it is a parent’s job to help their children learn about their different feelings, as they occur, and to teach children to handle and regulate those feelings, especially when they’re uncomfortable. There’s a fine line between discussing feelings and paying too much attention to them. A few scenarios may help to illustrate the difference. Scenario 1: A kindergartner tells her mother that there’s a mean girl in her class who made her feel badly. The mother asks questions and offers to talk to the teacher about the mean girl. The teacher listens politely to the mother’s concern as the daughter watches and assures them both that she will monitor the situation. For the next six weeks, as soon as mom picks her up at the end of her school day, the kindergartner gives her mother daily reports about the mean girl. Mom listens, comments, sympathizes, offers suggestions, and in so doing legitimizes her daughter’s preoccupation with and angst over this one classmate. After two months of mean girl reports, mom contacts me to ask for guidance in

helping her daughter move on. Scenario 2: A fourth grader asks her mom about suicide one night as she’s being tucked in to bed. Her mom gives her a basic answer and kisses her goodnight. Mom is disturbed by the question. The next week, the daughter asks mom about suicide three more times. Mom tries to discover what is spurring her daughter’s interest in the subject and begins amateur psychoanalysis. The next time her daughter asks, mom contacts me for guidance. Her question for me is whether she should make an appointment with a child psychologist to determine whether her daughter is in danger. In both scenarios, my advice to the moms is the same, and it’s simple. Stop talking about it! The more attention you pay to something, the more important it becomes. In both cases, I suggested that the next time the topic arose, to say to their daughters something like “Honey, we’ve said everything there is to say about this.” In the mean girl case, mom can add “I know you will handle the situation well at school.” In the suicide case, mom needn’t add anything. The fact is that their children won’t move on until mom stops paying so much attention to their feelings about things. (I’m going to stick with using

1

moms as the ones mostly concerned with their children’s feelings, as moms tend to be more emotionally in tune to and involved with this part of their children’s lives.) Children need to learn that we all have feelings. Sometimes they’re easy to understand, other times they’re more complicated. Sometimes they are appropriate for the situation, other times they are totally silly. But most importantly, our feelings cannot be the main impetus that drives our behavior. Once a child is out of infancy and can communicate their feelings, it is time to teach them how to regulate those feelings, instead of attaching so much importance to them that the children, and by default the family, become ruled by their feelings. There are plenty of great books about feelings that children will enjoy. There are plenty of role-playing activities that will help children understand appropriate versus inappropriate reactions. However, the best learning comes from real-life experience. So, the next time your child is angry, disappointed, sad, or frustrated let them vent their feelings. Listen to them attentively, help them give a name to their feeling, then hug your child and say something like “Yes, if I was your age I’d feel the same way” and move on with your life. Because if parents continue to feed the beast with the post-modern psychological parenting strategy of attending to, prioritizing, analyzing and legitimizing every feeling their children have, I fear that the resulting self-important cry-babies will infiltrate all segments of our society and the importance of humble, moral and reasonable behavior is doomed for extinction.

The team represents 18 different faith groups in Poway and the surrounding communities. The breakfast was open to local religious leaders and representatives from Poway and Rancho Bernardo religious centers as well as members of the Poway City Council, the Poway Unified School District and government agencies.

and San Dieguito River Park. That is not the full scope of land out there. For example, other open space in the Rancho Bernardo area is owned by the City of San Diego. The first survey — completed in 2014-15 — was of 167 acres by the River Park JPA Headquarters and Sycamore Creek, which involved the efforts of 150 citizen scientists. There, 172 plant species and 95 wildlife species were detected. Last year’s Bernardo Mountain survey involved the efforts of 85 citizen scientists over a 232-acre area. Efforts included two bird surveys each quarter (eight total) in the early morning, plant surveys conducted on a seasonal basis and round-the-clock wildlife monitoring via the cameras. For detailed lists of all wildlife and plant species cataloged plus some photos, go to tinyurl.com/SDRVC-cit-science. This year, the focus will be on the conservancy’s Rutherford C property, near Volcan Mountain in Julian. Those interested can participate in a bird survey — volunteers will

photos, collected data and created field guides to teach other aspiring citizen scientists how to identify local species. The photos captured such creatures as birds, rabbits, lizards, coyotes, deer and snakes. Norton said snakes were captured on film because blowing wind moved nearby vegetation as the snakes slithered by the camera. The cataloged flora consisted of 150 native species, 20 non-native species and 31 invasive non-native species. Norton said the conservancy and other groups working in the river park will use the information about the invasives to eliminate these species as much as possible when doing habitat restoration. Norton said the conservancy’s citizen science monitoring program started in 2014 due to grants it received. These included $40,000 from The San Diego Foundation Ariel W. Coggenshall Fund and a $10,000 SDG&E Environmental Champions Award. These and other grants have enabled the organization and its volunteer citizen scientists to collect field data on the roughly 3,500 acres owned by the conservancy

away from the birds, Norton said “it was great to see them building (a nest) here.” The bird list consisted of native species with three exceptions. These “exotic” or “non-native” birds were the brown-headed cowbird, European starling and scaly-breasted munia. Norton said the difference between native and exotic is that the latter were introduced into the environment instead of evolving here. While not spotted on Bernardo Mountain, she said these include the snapping turtle, for example, which has been seen near Lake Hodges. The turtles are usually former pets that people released into the wild after no longer wanting them. As for the brown-headed cowbird, Norton said that is also an example of a bird that invades other birds’ nests by laying its eggs among another species’ eggs. The cowbird babies are typically bigger than the host bird’s young and it not only competes for the food, but has been known to push its host’s babies out of the nest. She said the spotting of a San Diego banded gecko was also “really cool” because “while not a protected (species) it is a more rare species that is very secretive. You do not know it is out there and it’s super cute.” In addition to the conservancy’s citizen science program volunteers, along with those in similar programs with Palomar Audubon, Southwestern Field Herping Associates (it focuses on reptiles) and San Diego Tracking Team, junior citizen scientists from High Tech Elementary North County helped catalog species captured through the Critters on Camera research project. For this, Norton said she collected memory cards in cameras set out in the open space that via motion activation photographed whatever came into view day and night. Students reviewed the

gather at 8:15 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 25 in the Albertson’s parking lot at 1459 Main Street in Ramona — and a botanical survey on Saturday, April 29. Those interested can contact Norton at jess@sdrvc.org for details. Due to the area’s terrain, including steep slopes and elevation, Norton said volunteers should be middle school age and older. Norton said volunteers do not need much, if any, experience or knowledge to participate as a citizen scientist. Volunteers are given the basic protocols and then sent out with experts. The volunteers are asked to keep on the lookout for various species then point out what they see to the experts. Some volunteers also provide their photography skills. Even those not interested in going out into the open space can volunteer. “We need people to review the wildlife camera photos, which they can do at home on their computers,” Norton said, adding she will send them the files and they are to note which photos have images of wildlife. Those photos will then be sent to experts for identification.

Apartments, solar energy on council agenda BY STEVE DREYER The design of an apartment complex for adults with special needs and a proposal to install solar energy systems at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts and Fire Station No. 3 will occupy the City Council on Tuesday night. Villa de Vida proposes to build a two-story, 54-unit project on about 2 acres at 12341 Oak Knoll Road. The non-profit is partnering with Mercy Housing California and received initial city approval in October. Tuesday night’s council review of specific design plans is the last step needed before the applicants enter into competition for a possible allocation of about $17 million in federal tax credits. Construction is projected to cost between $24 million and $27 million, with funding coming from both government and private sources. Much of the balance will come from donations raised through Villa de Vida. Submitted plans call for 51 one-bedroom units, including one for the on-site manager, and three two-bedroom units. Because the renters will mostly not be licensed drivers, the project calls for 32 parking spaces rather than the 83 spaces the city would normally require. City codes allow such a concession. The units would be rented to low- and moderate-income disabled adults who would live in what is called a “permanent supportive housing” environment. Rents would range from $458 to $764 per month, depending on income. By comparison, the average market-rate rent

in the county is $1,768 per month, Villa de Vida Executive Director Ashley Kim told the council last year. An agreement approved by the City Council in October establishes that the city will turn over the property, currently owned by the city’s housing authority, to Villa de Vida and will provide $500,000 in construction loans. The property, valued at $2.1 million and zoned for commercial use, was purchased in 2011 by the city’s now-defunct redevelopment agency and assigned an affordable housing zoning “overlay.” The city would receive credit toward its regional “fair share” affordable housing allocation with completion of the project. The council will also consider approving solar power purchasing agreements (PPAs) for the construction of solar energy systems on the west side parking lot of the PCPA and on vacant land near Fire Station No. 3, off of Pomerado Road. The PCPA system is projected to generate nearly all of the power needed to run the center and will save the city and school district $125,804 per year. A staff report prepared for the meeting does not estimate annual projected savings to be achieved with the fire station site, but estimates the worth of first-year solar production at $455,022, which will be applied toward both the fire station and additional city structures to cut energy bills. The council meeting will begin a 7 p.m. in the council chambers on Civic Center Drive.

deadlock, she would have liked to see Interim Superintendent Tony Apostle stay with the district while the board resumed searching for a candidate they could all support. Beatty said she also had concerns about the integrity of the process and that the board’s actions lacked transparency. Sellers said in an email that several issues prevented him from supporting Kim-Phelps as the finalist, including the board’s counsel, Maribel Medina, being prevented from reviewing the contract that will be offered, which led him to question “both its veracity and their motives,” he wrote. Sellers also said that if the other board members were truly interested in a compromise candidate they could all support, they would have allowed Apostle to stay on as interim superintendent and permitted him to apply for the permanent position. While the meeting’s agenda previously listed an item extending Apostle’s contract for another month to March 14, O’Connor-Ratcliff announced at the meeting that Apostle’s last day would be Friday and that Associate Superintendent Mel Robertson would take over as interim superintendent. The closed session that preceded the regular board meeting extended over 90 minutes past the meeting’s 6 p.m. start.

forward to building on the achievements of Poway Unified while looking forward to a shared future,” said Kim-Phelps in a press release from the district. Kim-Phelps is also an adjunct professor at California State University Fullerton, where she has taught doctorate-level coursework on ethical and legal dimensions of educational leadership. She earned her doctorate degree from San Diego State University, her master’s degree in educational leadership from Point Loma Nazarene University and a bachelor’s degree from University of California, San Diego. Prior to and during her years as an educator, Kim-Phelps worked in hospital business administration with Scripps Health for over 10 years. “Dr. Kim-Phelps is an incredibly accomplished superintendent. She has outstanding credentials and brings the experience and vision needed to lead the district and embrace the community. We are very excited to have her as our next superintendent,” said O’Connor-Ratcliff in a press release. Beatty said in an email that she felt another candidate was a better fit for the district and that because of the

While many of the requests for quilts from veterans come from the Quilts of Valor organization, Craven said they do get some through word-of-mouth. Recipients must have served in the military and have been honorably discharged, Craven said. In addition to making the quilts, Craven and her group also present the quilts to the veterans. “We present all over,” Craven said. “Homes, churches, meetings.

BY EMILY SORENSEN A local group of avid quilters are providing veterans with patriotic quilts. The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a nationwide nonprofit that provides veterans of all armed conflicts with patriotic-themed quilts sewn by volunteers. The organization was started in 2003 by Catherine Roberts, a mother of a child who served in the armed forces. Started in her sewing room, the nonprofit has spread across the country and now has 350 groups that have presented over 150,000 quilts to veterans. In Poway, the Quilts of Valor group meets in the back room of Paradise Sewing the second Thursday of every month and in a member’s home the fourth Thursday. At their biweekly meetings, the group stitches together quilts and presents them to veterans. Colleen Craven, the leader of the Poway branch of Quilts of Valor, said that the group has about 25 regular members and has presented over 125 quilts to veterans in San Diego County. She has been involved with Quilts of Valor for about 5 1/2 years, she said, and has made over 500 quilts. “I couldn’t do it without them,” Craven said of the volunteers in Poway, who stitch together the quilt tops in a variety of patterns. Once a recipient has decided what pattern they want, Craven stitches the top to the back of the quilt using her longarm sewing machine. Craven said the organization is a true nonprofit, with all donations going back into the quilts. Ginny Hoffman, the owner of Paradise Sewing, allows the group to use her shop space for free,

Ask the 2017

NICE C A R Imagine if you were to walk up to me and ask, “What kind of car should I buy?” What if I were to answer, “You should buy a sports car, they are so much fun to drive.” You might hate sports cars and everything about them. You might have no interest in how fast a car can go from 0-60. Maybe you have children and a sports car is about as impracticable as it gets. My wife’s measuring stick for evaluating a car is the number of cup holders. The point is, I can’t possibly tell you what kind of car you should drive unless I know more about your unique situation. So, if it is important to gather a lot of information with respect to purchasing a car, what does that say about the information needed to make investment decisions? Just as we can agree that having a nicer car is preferable to having a beat-up car, higher investment returns are preferable to lower investment returns. Both come at a cost, with a nicer car being more expensive and a higher potential return on an investment incurring more potential risk. When the car is running well, life is great. However, when a sports car breaks down, the repairs are typically much more expensive than a standard sedan. Investments that offer higher potential returns are similar. When the investment is doing well, life is great. It is when the investment turns south that losses can really mount. It can be said that if you can’t afford the repairs on an expensive sports car, you probably shouldn’t buy it in the first place, because it is only a matter of when, not if, a car will break down. A risky investment is very much the same. When the investment declines in value, sometimes more than you thought possible, you are left wondering why you bought the investment in the first place. Often times the only recourse you have is to then sell the investment for a deep loss. It is easy to be attracted to the image of driving a sports car, just like it is easy to drawn into the potential rewards of a high risk/high reward investment. You need to step back before you make these purchases and ask yourself what you need out of your investments. It is no different than asking yourself what you need out of your car. Depending upon what stage of life you are in, your answer is going to vary. When you are younger with no responsibilities, maybe it makes more sense to buy a sports car. As you transition into possibly raising a family, your needs change and possibly trading in a sports car for a minivan (gasp!) may make more sense. Ultimately in your retirement years, you may decide that getting from point A to point B is what it is really all about and opt for a safe, reliable car with good gas mileage.

Your retirement portfolio may adapt a similar approach. When you are young and when retirement is still a long way off, you can be more aggressive for the simple reason that you have more time for your portfolio to recover in the event of a market downturn. History has shown that markets appreciate over time, but it is hardly a linear rate of increase. During your family/ working years, you are hopefully putting money away for retirement, but your overall investment portfolio may adopt a more conservative approach to ref lect that you now have additional responsibilities and are closer to retirement. Ultimately, in retirement, your big fear is that you don’t want to outlive your money and you don’t want to take undue risks with your retirement assets. So what does all this mean? If you are in retirement, take a look and see if your investments match your needs. Do you have the equivalent of a sports car sitting in your garage that is one expensive repair away from putting you in a bad financial situation? If so, it may be time to sell that “sports car” and move into a more affordable car that will still get you from point A to point B without the possible future expensive repair bill. On a related note, think of the additional costs associated with the shiny sports car. Car insurance will be higher and the fear of getting dents in the car often means having to park in spots away from other cars. If you are holding a risky investment, the additional cost in terms of worry/anxiety over the performance of the holding is very real for some people. For individuals that are very wealthy, having a sports car may not represent any kind of financial hardship even if it turns out to be a complete lemon. Similarly, they may be able to invest in riskier investments since they have the capacity to sustain possible losses. I fully agree that it may be more fun to drive a sports car, but if your back up plans for the sports car include riding a bike, then perhaps you should consider selling now while it is still running.

Each grade ran around a small track for one hour, with each lap completed being marked off by parent volunteers. Students raised funds by collecting pledges per lap completed. -graders run around their track, at the start of their hour-long run, while parent volunteers mark off each lap the students completed. The event was hosted by Apex Fun Run at the school, who came in to classes for five days prior to the event to educate the students on life lessons like healthy living and how to be a good citizen. This is one of three major fundraisers for the school organized by the Garden Road Foundation, according to Foundation President Sarah Mastrianni, and she said the foundation hopes the run will bring in over $20,000.

GUEST COLUMN

Dental program dysfunctional BY BRIAN MAIENSCHEIN omprehensive reports by the California State auditor and an independent state oversight agency detail the areas where Denti-Cal falls short of meeting the needs of patients in our state. It is alarming that less than 38 percent of Denti-Cal eligible children received dental care in 2014. This perpetuates a lack of access to care for a population that can least afford to fall farther behind in our society. When a child is not able to get basic or routine care, especially from a dentist, he or she is more likely to miss school and have worse health outcomes. Tooth decay and disease are associated with pregnancy risks, diabetes, and respiratory and heart diseases. The inability to obtain proper dental care can have significant long-term impacts, which contribute to multi-generational poverty. This is what happens when a program that is supposed to help those in poverty, instead creates barriers to care. California’s dental program, known as Denti-Cal, is dysfunctional and ineffective. More than 14 million Californians, including five million children, depend on Denti-Cal services as part of the state’s low-income health system. According to the Little Hoover Commission’s report, millions of Californians have rotting or missing teeth, debilitating pain, poor oral health habits and no preventative care. Last year after reviewing the reports and hearing from stakeholders, it was clear that we couldn’t wait any longer for reform. Denti-Cal has been underfunded for years. I joined with many of my colleagues in requesting funds in this year’s Budget that would help fix the program. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, so I am trying another route. This year I introduced Assembly Bill 15, which will provide more funding for Denti-Cal and focus on ensuring there are more dentists available for patients in the program. Increased funding for preventative care and case management services will ultimately achieve significant long-term cost savings, increase provider participation and increase beneficiary utilization under the program. The biggest issues with Denti-Cal stem from the lack of dentists who care for patients in the program. My bill will increase reimbursement rates, which are currently about 35 percent of the national average, with the intention of encouraging more dentists to see Denti-Cal patients. Not only are costs higher than average in California, but low reimbursement rates make it difficult for children to find a dentist to provide routine care. As with the general Medicaid system in our state, there are many regions where providers don’t take state insurance because of low reimbursement rates. I am committed to fixing the Denti-Cal system, so that millions of children can get the dental care they need. The state should address this matter and include more funding for Denti-Cal in this year’s budget. If this does not happen, I am committed to working each year until this critical issue is addressed. California’s health and social safety net programs should provide hope and opportunity for low-income residents, not make it more difficult to get basic care and treatment. Maienschein represents the 77th Assembly District, which includes most of inland North County.

OUR READERS WRITE Remember these words Having not voted for President Trump or Secretary Clinton, I still question columnist Amy Roost’s Feb. 2 comments about democracy circling the drain. Fact: Donald Trump won. Getting the most votes is not required. His 46 percent of the popular voted exceeds Bill Clinton’s 43 percent in 1992. Also, 56 percent of the voters chose someone other than President Clinton; for President Trump, 54 percent. Regarding character, Bill Clinton was a serial philanderer and accused of rape and sexual assault. Ms. Roost’s faith lies in an old bus, mine lies in something much older, the Constitution. Many progressives call the president a Nazi, but it is they who besmirch the document. Squashing free speech, installing politically correct thought into schools, vandalism, assaulting opponents and calls for overthrowing the duly elected president are right in goose step with the brown shirts. What do Californians clamoring for secession and white slaveholders in 1860 have in common? They voted for Democrats. Remember President Obama’s words to vanquished Senator McCain, “Elections have consequences.” Ms. Roost fails to see this was a change election. It was as much, if not more, a repudiation of the status quo embodied by Secretary Clinton as it was support for her opponent. Apparently, change only counts when it’s the kind you want. Tom Drzewiecki Poway

Opposes sanctuary status California is considering becoming a sanctuary state. If you support this idea, call your elected officials and let them know that when a non-citizen murderer or sex offender is released from jail you want them to live in your community. Perhaps you can rent them a room in your home. And let them know that when they re-offend you don't object to the state spending $50-100 a day to house the individual in prison.

Recycling changes Recyclers, beware! If you recycle at the installation behind the Vons in Poway, things have changed. A new company has taken over, and although it has grown, not all is good. The self-recycle apparatus is very slow and often takes several tries, if you’re lucky, to get it to accept items. Also, there is now a same-day requirement for redemption of the voucher at Vons. Miss it, and you have to write a letter to the company and they say they will send you a check. The only good thing about this is that the post office will make a little money.

Common Sense BY BARRY CRONIN

Spiritual fitness

A

ny serious student is undoubtedly familiar with the use of modeling to convey advanced concepts, processes and ideas. Science and academia routinely employ models to analyze or simulate data, quickly and efficiently. A good model is further capable of displaying the empirical results of that analysis/simulation in an easy-to-understand visual representation. Think Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, a complex theory of motivation reduced to a single, colorful pyramid. Anyone can use modeling to test theories and find answers to difficult questions. My own personal model of behavioral modification ended up resembling not so much a pyramid as a six-layered, Babylonian ziggurat. By way of background, I was given the enormous responsibility of leading Marines. Among the duties as commanding officer

(referred to as either the “CO” or the “Old Man”) was the necessary yet dreadful task of administering discipline. For 30 years, more Marines than I care to number have stood in front of my desk for failing to live up to the corps’ high standards. Over time, I became intrigued with this whole phenomenon of misbehavior. In a veritable cult of meticulously conditioned young men and women, why did some Marines continually “screw up?” Was there something common among those who did? What could be done to interrupt this self-destructive cycle? In my zeal to find answers to these questions, the ziggurat model was born. The bottom-most level is spirituality. The second is compassion, the genuine empathy for the plight of another. Right above that is morality, the ability to discern right from wrong.

SoCal Focus BY THOMAS ELIAS

Putting state back into national politics

C

alifornia is in the forefront of most things. From new tax formulas to new movies, TV shows and electronic devices, from pioneering farm irrigation techniques to innovative hairstyles and much more, trends start here and often work their way across the country. But almost no one anymore believes California has been even minimally influential in national politics for many years, despite its place as America’s largest and most innovative state. This could change if California legislators want it to, just about three years from today. California gave Democrat Hillary Clinton a 4.3 million vote majority in the last presidential election, but it didn’t matter much. Her rival, Donald Trump, carried the three states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania by a combined total of less than one-fortieth that number, but together they gave him almost as many electoral votes as California gave Clinton, and therefore he took the presidency in what he laughably calls “an easy win.” Short of seceding from the

Union, there is little prospect for California to evade its disadvantaged status in the Electoral College. But there is another way for this state to assert itself, and that can come in the primary election process. By allowing its presidential primary to languish in June during the last two election cycles, California opted to have next to no voice in the selection of the two major party nominees for president. To regain a large voice in the matter, all California need do is move its primary up into mid-February, about two weeks behind New Hampshire’s protected slot as first primary in the nation and Iowa’s as the first caucus. That move would not negate the Electoral College disadvantage now seeing a vote in Montana or Wyoming or Delaware count for about 1.3 times as much as one in California. But it would at least give California a voice in choosing the nominees, something this state habitually allows others to do. That’s to our detriment. As Democratic Assemblyman Kevin Mullin of South San Francisco observed in submitting a bill to put

California into the first Super Tuesday voting of the next primary season, “There’s not enough discussion of substantive issues that are crucial to Californians.” This includes everything from immigration to oil drilling, from affordable health care to water rights and water systems. None of it gets debated in California. In fact, almost nothing was debated in California during the last two election cycles. It didn’t have to be that way. There was nothing, for example, preventing California from scheduling its 2016 primary on Feb. 16, one week after New Hampshire. Or on Feb. 23, the same day Nevada Republicans caucused with fanfare. Those places each had a voice in the choice, a major one. Would the likes of Jeb Bush and Lindsay Graham and George Pataki, all with major experience in high office, have dropped out as early as they did if California’s winner-take-all GOP primary still loomed? Doubtful, because a California plurality could have provided one of them almost 20 percent of what was needed for nomination. Would Bernard Sanders

Civility is next, followed by ethics, as in one’s own personal code of virtues. The top of the ziggurat is reserved for the ethos of the corps: honor, courage and commitment. Six levels: spirituality, compassion, morality, civility, ethics and ethos. The theory was simple. The six levels represent the characteristics of an ethical warrior, each level dependent upon the one below for stability. If even one of the levels is defective, everything above will wobble and sway when the winds of temptation blow. As a commanding officer, the challenge was to somehow identify that weak level and jointly work out corrective action. But could the model be tested? Turns out the answer was yes. Perhaps the most effective administrative punishments that can be awarded is restriction. A service member under restriction is limited for the duration to his or her place of duty (where he works), billeting (where he lives), messing (where he eats) and worship (where he goes to church). After awarding restriction, I would always explain the process and then question the offender to ensure he or she clearly understood what was expected. Where do you billet? Where do you work? Where is the chow hall? The Marine invariably answered these first three questions without difficulty or hesitation. However, when have knocked out Clinton early because of his strong support in California, thus setting up a very different November election? These questions are open, but show how a moved-up California might have reshaped things. Mullin’s bill would set California’s primary in March in presidential years, compromising with colleagues who believe February is too early. But why compromise on this? If California needs to spend $100 million or so for a presidential primary separate from the ordinary June vote on every other significant state office, why not? That’s a pittance in terms of this state’s budget of more than $200 billion, pennies per person. It would it be worth far more to allow Californians to feel involved. The savings in psychotherapy bills alone could top $100 million, plus there would actually be national candidate advertising and campaigning in California, something almost unseen here in more than eight years. The bottom line is that it’s been unconscionable for legislators to keep the primary in June in presidential years, just so they can have more convenient filing deadlines and leisurely fund-raising schedules. The need for an early primary has never been more obvious and hats off to Mullin for being first to do something about it. Elias, a syndicated columnist, can be reached at tdelias@aol.com.

it came to the fourth question, regarding worship, they had no answer. Of the hundreds of Marines to whom I posed that fourth question, how many do you think identified a real place? Only one! And he turned out OK. The ziggurat taught me this. Marines who sit in the pews on Sunday do not stand in front of the “Old Man” on Monday. A lot of readers will undoubtedly dismiss this hypothesis as idle conjecture, wishful thinking or just plain lousy journalism. Perfectly understandable. I am neither a scientist nor an academician. Any university-trained analyst could probably rip this model to shreds. Interestingly, the commandant of the Marine Corps recently released an all-hands message entitled “Spiritual Fitness.” In it, he writes, “research indicates that spiritual fitness plays a key role in resiliency, in our ability to grow, develop, recover, heal and adapt. Regardless of individual philosophy or beliefs, spiritual well-being makes us better warriors and people of character capable of making good choices on and off duty.” One cannot help but wonder. How would America 2017 fare against the ziggurat? Cronin is a Poway resident and is the safety officer at MCAS Miramar.

FROM LETTERS, A20

Wrong choice for post How can we, as a caring, responsible nation, even consider the possibility of nominating or confirming Tom Price to be secretary of Health and Human Services? Our family, like many families today, a mixture of white, black, Latino, rich, needy, gay, students and seniors. We believe in helping ourselves, working every day, paying taxes and yet sometimes requiring a little help. Why would our leaders consider someone with no health background and certainly no concern beyond his circle of friends, as wise enough and compassionate enough to make decisions that will affect millions of Americans? Think carefully. Some day his decisions might affect you and your love ones. Jonni Mann Rancho Bernardo

Fooling the people An important tool of demagogy is the spreading of fear. We are now learning that there is presumably more terrorist activity going on in the U.S. and elsewhere than what the evil news media, for some sinister reasons, are refusing to report. Of course, the fact is exactly the opposite in that those incidents tend to be over-reported more than would be prudent because sensationalism is precisely what the terrorist is hoping for. Demagogues have a great skill in fact-distortion, but there was something that Lincoln said about fooling the people. Fritz Woeller Rancho Bernardo

Whose opinion is it? In the Feb. 2 edition, columnist Harry Levine states that President Trump is a “liar and a gamer.” Nowhere do your readers see a disclaimer to the effect that “This columnist’s opinions do not represent those of our publication.” If your publication believes that President Trump is a liar and a gamer, then you should state that clearly in an editorial. Further on, Mr. Levine asks, “Why is Duncan Hunter still in Congress?” The answer should be clear: Because the citizens of his district elected him. By the way, what are Mr. Levine’s qualifications? Joe Fiore Rancho Bernardo Editor’s note: Fiore raises a good point. A description of the items on our Opinion pages has been added.

How to WRECK Your Retirement by overlooking possibility of need for Long Term Health Care LONG-TERM CARE is the #1 Financial Risk faces by retirees. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, at least 70 percent of people over 65 will eventually need long-term care, either at home or in a nursing home, and that can be very expensive. The average stay for a woman entering a nursing home is almost four years; if she’s in a semiprivate room that costs in San Diego is about $375,000. For married couples, the chances that one spouse will need long-term care rises to 91%.

Del Norte hosting Division II tourney on Saturday

BY TERRY MONAHAN Josh Tolentino of Poway thought everything was going according to plan last wrestling season. He was fresh off winning the San Diego Section Division II individual championship at 138 pounds heading into the Masters Meet, which was supposed to be a stopover before heading off to the State Championships in Bakersfield. Tolentino, however, stumbled at the Masters Meet, finishing fifth. With only the top three wrestlers in each weight class advancing to the state championships, Tolentino was one of only three Titans who failed to move on. Tolentino went with his teammates to Bakersfield, but only as a spectator. “It stunk,’’ Tolentino recalled. “It was so hard sitting in the stands while almost everyone else got to wrestle. I learned a valuable lesson. I fell short and there’s no one to blame but me. I learned I have to keep pushing forward.’’ One year later, Tolentino is back for another run at the state championships, starting with Saturday’s Divisional Championships at Del Norte. Poway is the No. 1 seed in Division II again with Rancho Bernardo at No. 2 and Del Norte in the same division as well. On Saturday, the first matches are at 9 a.m. with the semifinals scheduled for noon and the finals slated to begin at 5 p.m. Tickets will cost $10 for adults and $6 for students and seniors.

League title up for grabs in final week of regular season BY MICHAEL BOWER Boys soccer in the Palomar League always seems to come down to the wire. But this year is especially exciting for the area because the league championship will be decided in the final week and the three contenders are Poway High, Rancho Bernardo and Del Norte. The Titans and Broncos entered the week tied at the top of the standings with 15 points apiece. Del Norte is right behind them with 14 points. Poway controls its own destiny as it was slated to travel to the Nighthawks on Wednesday and will play at Rancho Bernardo at 5:15 on Friday. That game could win up deciding the league champion. “I can’t remember a week like this where three teams are fighting it out and all playing each other and that is what is crazy,” Poway coach Eugene Morris said. “We control our own destiny. If we beat both Del Norte and Poway we are the champs.” The Titans had a chance to separate the gap last week, but tied Mission Vista and Mt. Carmel. That left the door open for the Broncos and Nighthawks. Rancho Bernardo, who was slated to play Mt. Carmel Wednesday, tied Poway 1-1 in the first meeting. Del Norte closes the year at Mission Vista on Friday. The three squads are not only battling for the league championship, they also are trying to solidify their position in the upcoming playoffs. The Titans entered the week No. 6 in the Division I Power Rankings, the Broncos No. 2 in the Division II Power Rankings and SEE SOCCER, B4

Samilo's determination leading to goals for Broncos BY TERRY MONAHAN When you play forward in soccer, the conditions close to the opposing goal can become filled with hazards. Any little trick becomes quite a weapon. “I’m pretty aggressive in there,’’ Rancho Bernardo High senior Madison Samilo said. “I’m also very fast, which helps me a lot. I can also jump pretty high. I guess I’m very, very, very determined to score in close.’’ All those traits have helped Samilo lead the Broncos in scoring this season. That despite the fact that she stands just 5-foot-3 ½. Her skills will be on display Friday at 7 p.m. when Rancho Bernardo hosts rival Poway in the regular-season finale with a shot at the Palomar League title possibly on the line. The Broncos moved Senior Night to Wednesday to fully concentrate on the Titans. “It’s a rivalry, it’s Poway, maybe league title on the line, power rankings, bragging rights, there’s a lot on the line,’’ Rancho Bernardo coach Mark Sidebottom said. “Hopefully, the whole school is fired up.’’ Samilo has been playing soccer since she joined an indoor league at the Poway Soccer Park when she was just 4. “I don’t know how short I was, but I’m sure I was the shortest player in the league,’’ Samilo said. But she developed a passion for the sport and the chance to play with her friends. Her soccer career will continue next fall when Samilo, who carries a 4.19 GPA, enrolls at UC San Diego. She plans to major in marine biology. “I really want to explore the ocean,’’ Samilo said. “I’ve always been fascinated with it since I’ve been a beach kid my whole life. I’m nervous for this change.

did not deter her return after a six-month absence. “I’m not sure when I fractured it,’’ Samilo said. “At first, I just ignored it, but it only got worse. Coach said it was only in my head until it got hard to run, walk, sit at a desk or even sleep.’’ Only rest could heal it. Reduced to sitting on the Broncos’ bench, Samilo became the loudest cheerleader she could. Although Samilo’s back healed faster than two teammates who had the exact same injury, she hated sitting out. Her return was almost as slow. “I came back slowly and if my back started hurting I would stop,’’ she said. “Eventually, it stopped hurting. I was just happy to be back doing what I love.’’ Samilo hardly ever has a day without some soccer-related activity, except when she’s doing orchestra at school. She took up the viola, a slightly smaller version of the violin with a deeper sound, in fifth grade. She added the violin as a freshman. “It’s hard to balance school, soccer, orchestra, homework, travel ball,’’ Samilo said. “I think I took up the viola because learning to play an instrument was required. I love music so much I stuck with it despite all the time requirements.’’ Mix in a few moments to enjoy painting, mostly landscapes, and that’s a pretty full day. Monahan is a freelance writer

PHS girls clinch league title; Broncos-Titans boys to play for crown BY TERRY MONAHAN The last time Poway High captured a Palomar League championship in girls basketball was six years ago. Erin Brunansky, a senior center on this year’s Titans team, was in sixth grade that season and she was at most of Poway’s games that year. That’s because her sister Alexa was a junior forward on that team. “I don’t remember the night they clinched league,’’ Erin said. “I went to all her games. I was probably in the gym.’’ Now the last of the three Brunansky children has achieved a bit of immortality as the team heads into this week with a 10-game winning streak. The Titans hope to end the season on a 12-game winning streak. That would require a win in Friday’s regular-season finale at rival Rancho Bernardo (tip is at 5:30 p.m.). No matter what happens, though, Poway has already claimed at least a share of the league title. The Titans’ 39-15 win over Mt. Carmel on Friday put them two games ahead of Rancho Bernardo (20-5, 6-2). Poway enters the week 21-5 overall and 8-0 in league play. “I knew we had a lot of heart this year,’’ Erin said. “If we put in the work, and this team has a lot of hard workers, we could do this thing one game at a time. It will be great to see our year on the league championship banner in the gym.’’ Erin Brunansky’s title season would be listed right underneath Alexa’s.

The Broncos' Aly Murray drives to the basket as Poway's Dana Stewart defends. “No matter what league title situation is, it’s still a big game,’’ said Poway coach Jay Trousdale, referring to the showdown with the Broncos. “Power rankings and bragging rights are on the line. The most important goal is to win and help your playoff situation.’’ Rancho Bernardo is trying to buck history a bit. Poway has won 22 of the last 24 meetings with the Broncos.

TIM GARCIA

“Last year we split with Poway, but we had nine games decided by three points or less,’’ Rancho Bernardo coach Kyle Williamson said. “We have at least six games decided by four points or less this year. We’ve got to finish games better.’’ Poway will be in the Open Division for the playoffs while Rancho Bernardo, which last won a league title in 2004, will be in Division

Poway (20-5, 6-1) and Rancho Bernardo (18-5, 6-1) are tied for first in the Palomar League. The Titans defeated Rancho Bernardo 77-65 on Jan. 27, but lost a 50-48 overtime thriller to Westview on Feb. 3 to set up Friday’s league championship showdown at Rancho Bernardo. Tip is at 7 p.m. “They have lots of good players and good players can hurt you,’’ Poway coach Scott Fisher said. “If you’re a competitor, on the court and off, you live for moments like these. I’ve got a fun group to coach. We do lots of good things and we do some things that we need to improve on.’’ Rancho Bernardo relies on the leadership of high-scoring guard JJ Overton, who Fisher called one of the top 10 players in San Diego this season. “It’s been a while for us to win league,’’ Rancho Bernardo coach Marc Basehore. “ But we had Torrey Pines, La Costa Canyon and El Camino in the league there for a while. No question it would be exciting for our guys to win league again.” The last time Rancho Bernardo was crowned a league champion was back in 2004 under coach Kevin Keller. Poway’s last boys league championship was in 1998 under coach Doug Wealch. Monahan is a freelance writer

If we can’t do that with everyone, then we shouldn’t be on the mat. If you want to be a factor at the state, you need numbers. You can’t contend for a state title with three or four wrestlers.’’ Poway has finished in the top 5 in the state 25 times and the Titans always drive to be among the best in the state. “We’ve won four state titles, we’ve been second six times - those are the ones that really hurt - and we’ve been third seven times,’’ Branstetter said. “I wish the state finals were tomorrow.’’ So does Tolentino. Rancho Bernardo has a number of contenders this week, including Chasen Blair at 195, Jaden Abas (132), Tyler Badgett (138) and Jaden Le (120). Blair is ranked No. 1 in the state and Abas is ranked No. 4 at 126 by California Wrestler. The Broncos also have Gavin Concepcion, Godfrey Lozado, Colin Murphy, True Stewart and Jake Grigg, who is coming back from a foot injury, who could do well. “Our whole team are contenders, like Poway,’’ Broncos coach Joe Terribilini said. “This group has worked so hard.’’ Del Norte rallied back to claim third with a 51-30 win over San Ysidro in the Dual Championships. The Nighthawks trailed 18-6 in Saturday’s match, but won seven consecutive matches. Monahan is a freelance writer

expected to play this week either. “The injuries have been killing us all year,” Morris said. “Not having my goalie showed last week. We gave up a couple of bad goals. John (Collier) has been the man scoring for us. We are surviving with the long throw in by Chris (Sanchez), but we have been struggling.” Of course, struggling for Poway doesn’t necessarily mean losing. The Titans have not lost a game since January 18. They are 4-0-3 since then. But Morris knows his team needs to be better if it wants to win a

Steve Gillette and Cindy Mangsen to perform Feb. 24 “refugee from the music industry,” has a more mainstream style. He has written songs covered by John Denver, Garth Brooks, Linda Ronstadt, Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings and Josh Ritter, among others. Both musicians sing and play guitar and Mangsen also plays the banjo, concertina and mountain dulcimer. Gillette said Mangsen will play two different types of concertinas in addition to guitar at their concert in Poway, one that is good for singing harmonies with and another that isn’t accompanied by singing. The duo recently put out a new album, “Berrymania,” that features 14 covers of the humorous songs of Lou and Peter Berryman, including “It’s Better Than That,” “Your State’s Name Here” and “Do You Believe In Me.” They have also released the duet albums “Home By Dark,” “Being There,” “A Sense of Place,” “The Light of Day” and “Live in Concert.” Each has also released a number of solo albums and albums with other musicians.

Concert will be held in Old Poway Park BY EMILY SORENSEN Folk singer-songwriters Steve Gillette and Cindy Mangsen will perform a concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 24 at Templar’s Hall in Old Poway Park, 14134 Midland Road. The duo have been performing together for almost 30 years and have produced six albums together, in addition to their solo careers. “We met in September of 1988 at a music festival in Rochester, New York, and we’ve been performing together ever since,” said Gillette. “The two of us together were able to do what neither of us were able to do alone.” Both performers are songwriters, each with their own style, said Gillette. Mangsen focuses on traditional ballads and Gillette, who described himself as a

Gillette said he is working on a new project, a love story based in Irish music about a young couple taking a tour in Ireland. “I hope it can be a wide performance piece, with story narration, maybe even visuals and multimedia,” said Gillette. Gillette said they were looking forward to visiting San Diego again and performing at Templar’s Hall. Though they don’t tour quite as much anymore, Gillette said he and Mangsen still travel around the country performing, especially to escape the winters of Vermont, where they live. They also perform at festivals around the country, including the Kerrville Folk Festival, and teach songwriting workshops in Santa Cruz and Vermont. For a preview of Gillette and Mangsen’s music, visit their website at compassrosemusic.com.

SDMT’s ‘9 to 5’ is funny and empowering BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK A funny musical that shows the strength women have when they join forces and decide to change their circumstances is playing at the Spreckels Theatre through Feb. 26. The success of San Diego Musical Theatre’s production of “9 to 5: The Musical” is largely due to its three leads who equally share the responsibility. Joy Yandell is office supervisor Violet Newstead, Allison Spratt Pearce is new employee Judy Bernly and Karyn Overstreet is the misunderstood Doralee Rhodes. In the course of the show, each character learns how to overcome her obstacles and circumstances so she can become a force to be reckoned with and change her workplace for the better. In addition to many catchy tunes, the choreography by Tamlyn Shusterman and direction by Cynthia Ferrer make it an enjoyable show about female empowerment that is sure to solicit numerous laughs. Set in 1979, “9 to 5” confronts the sexist-based discrimination and attitudes common in the workplace and society during that era. While much — policy wise — has changed in the past three decades, the empowerment lessons the three women learn are still relevant today, as are some of the issues they fight to correct, including family leave, equal pay and breaking through the proverbial glass ceiling. Based on the 1980 movie “9 to 5” that starred Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton in the roles of Violet, Judy and Doralee,

REVIEW

KEN JACQUES

Franklin Hart, Jr. (David S. Humphrey) finds out just how displeased employees Judy Bernly (Allison Spratt Pearce), Violet Newstead (Joy Yandell) and Doralee Rhodes (Karyn Overstreet) are with him after they tie him up and hold him at gunpoint. respectively, the stage version debuted on Broadway in 2009 with its book and music written by Parton. It features many of her well-known tunes, including the title song, “Backwoods Barbie,” “Shine Like the Sun,” “Get Out and Stay Out” and “Let Love Grow.” Violet is the widowed mother of a teenage boy. She has been in her job for 15 years, but because Violet is not male is passed over for her long-overdue promotion by her sexist, chauvinistic boss Franklin Hart, Jr. (David Humphrey). Judy is a newly divorced woman in her first job because she was dumped by her husband, who is now with his 19-year-old secretary with whom he was having an affair.

FEB

Doralee is a Southern transplant who is happily married, but disliked in the office by her female coworkers. Amply endowed, she endures sexual harassment by Hart, who has been falsely claiming in the office that the two of them are having an affair. Doralee knows nothing of his boastful lies about her. After Violet loses the promotion, Judy gets upset about a fellow secretary’s wrongful termination and Doralee finds out about Hart’s lies, the three women get together to relax — via marijuana — and in their drug-fueled haze fantasize what it would be like to get rid of their boss. The trio of songs that ensue are hilarious. They are “The Dance of Death” with Judy as a femme fatale killing Hart, “Cowgirl’s Revenge”

featuring rodeo star Doralee hog-tying Hart up and “Potion Notion,” which has Violet poisoning him in her mix of a Snow White/Evil Queen persona. The following day, Violet accidentally lives out her fantasy by putting rat poison instead of sweetener in Hart’s coffee. This sets in motion a series of events that lead to the women kidnapping Hart and trying to correct the injustices and other office problems while simultaneously trying to prove he is embezzling from the company. The three leads are well-cast in their respective roles. They each show they have the acting and singing chops to pull off their transformations from resigned victim to empowered woman. In addition, Humphrey does well in playing the sleazy Hart. Among supporting actors, Candi Milo deserves mention for her portrayal of Hart’s assistant, Roz Keith, who is romantically obsessed with her boss and does everything possible to hurt her female co-workers. Though justifiably disliked by the women, she too has a vulnerable size as revealed in “5 to 9,” a sharp contrast in musical numbers to her “Heart to Hart” performance. San Diego Musical Theatre’s “9 to 5: The Musical” can be seen at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays through Feb. 26 at the Spreckels Theatre, 121 Broadway in downtown San Diego. Tickets are $32 to $72, with discounts for seniors, children, students, those under age 30 and groups. Purchase at sdmt.org or 858-560-5740. Due to lots of sexual innuendo, parental guidance is advised.

Ramping up for baseball

A

n estimated 250 baseball fans gathered Feb. 9 in the Holy Family Center at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Poway to celebrate the pending start of the 2017 Padres spring training season and to raise funds for charities supported by the Poway Kiwanis Club Foundation. The “Spring Season Send Off” marked the 20th consecutive year the foundation has hosted a pre-spring training

event and the first time a dinner was held. Padres manager Andy Green, outfielder and Poway High graduate Alex Dickerson, assistant general manager Joe Stein and television broadcaster Don Orsillo represented the team. Live and silent auctions raised more than $17,000 for the foundation. Spring training for the team started Tuesday, with pitchers and catchers reporting to Peoria, Arizona.

An estimated 250 baseball fans attended the dinner, held in the Holy Family Center at St. Michael's Catholic Church.

Padres manager Andy Green and outfielder Alex Dickerson, a Poway High graduate, answered questions from the audience.

Kimberly Jedrysik and Wesley Episcopo.

Guests enjoyed a western barbecue buffet, an event tradition for many years.

Four Camp Pendleton Marines who had offered their services for a day as a live auction prize did pushups until bidding ended.

PHOTOS BY ROBERT MCMANUS

Don Orsillo, who is starting his first full season as a Padres television announcer, served as the evening's emcee.

Kiwanis club Director Monika Sullivan related her story about how adults reached out to her as a troubled teenager and helped guide her through tough times.

Bob Siggins, Beth Galloway, Liz Carlson and Steve Gardella.

HERA, a 3-year-old Domestic

Short Hair cat, is looking for loving place to call home. With her tiny pink nose and sweet, bashful personality, Hera is a darling kitty sure to bring so much joy to her new family. Hera first came to us as a stray nursing her kittens, and now that they’ve all grown up and been adopted, it’s Hera’s turn! Because of her shy, demure nature, she would do best as the only pet in her new home where she can be spoiled and loved. Hera is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E. Valley Parkway. For more information, please call 760-888-2275.

Beneficiary’s bid at said sale may include all or part of said amount. In addition to cash, the Trustee will accept a cashier’s check drawn on a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association or savings bank specified in Section 5102 of the California Financial Code and authorized to do business in California, or other such funds as may be acceptable to the Trustee. In the event tender other than cash is accepted, the Trustee may withhold the issuance of the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale until funds become available to the payee or endorsee as a matter of right. The property offered for sale excludes all funds held on account by the property receiver, if applicable. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse.

bidder shall have no further recourse. Notice to Potential Bidders If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a Trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a Trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property.

immersing the noodles. Strain when done, and gently blend another tablespoon or two of olive oil (per package) into the pasta. Cook’s Tip: Prepare al dente any pasta you intend to bake or cook further — such as lasagna, ziti or stuffed shells.

Smart tips for the inquiring foodie

R

eaders are constantly e-mailing this Kitchen Shrink for advice on assorted culinary crises. I recently received one from a panicked cook who was hosting a holiday gathering. When she inserted a first generation-style meat thermometer into a crown roast of lamb — and it snapped in half — I recommended Chinese take-out for dinner. Here’s a batch of tried-and-true food handling, storing and cooking tips for your collection. Some of these I stumbled upon by serendipity while searching for help to prevent or repair culinary glitches. The rest were gathered from other food-impassioned solution seekers and, of course, thoroughly tested in my kitchen before being added to the list.

Say Cheese: When shredding hard and semi-soft cheeses, coat the grater with a non-stick olive oil spray for faster clean-up and less wastage. Chill Out: For easier handling of beef, lamb, chicken or fish for soup, stew and stir-fry preparations, pop in the freezer for an hour or two. This makes it more manageable to slice or cube without

shredding the fibers. Onions are also kinder on the eyes when frozen — no more tears when dicing or slicing these icy bulbs. Herbal Essence: Enrich the flavor of soups and sauces by adding the herbs and spices during the last five minutes of cooking so they maintain their potency. Your Main Squeeze: To get the most juice out of a lemon, keep at room temperature for a day (or immerse into a bowl of hot water for a few minutes), then, with your palm, roll on a hard surface until the rind feels supple and the lemon softer. Cook’s Tip: After you have squeezed the last drop, plastic-wrap tightly the remaining pulp and rind, then freeze to use later for cake batters, risottos, or other lip-puckering dishes. Flour Power: So that bugs don’t take up residence in your flour stash, store it in a wide-mouth glass jar and add a bay leaf. Use Your Noodle: To prevent pasta from its maddening tendency of sticking together, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil to the boiling water before

Eat, Drink and Be Berry: The easiest way of preventing pesky mold from forming on berries is to rinse only the amount you plan to eat or serve right away. If, however, you intend to keep berries in the refrigerator for a few days, give them a quick rinse first in a weak dilution of water and apple-cider vinegar, drain in a sieve and air-dry for an hour, then refrigerate in an open bowl. Brown Out: To stave off sliced apples from oxidizing and turning brown simply squirt with lemon juice before storing or serving. Spud Smarts: Keep potatoes in a cool, dark place until ready to be cooked. Spuds tend to rot faster when onions are stored nearby. Use potatoes before they get a chance to germinate. Scrub them with a brush and rinse with cold water. Examine the root carefully and gouge and discard each sprouted “eye” before cooking. (Sprouting tendrils contain a mild toxin the plant creates to protect its offspring). In A Nutshell: Since nuts and seeds have a high fat content and tend to go rancid rather quickly, store in tightly closed glass containers in the refrigerator or freezer to keep light and moisture out. They generally last four months in the fridge, and eight in the freezer with their texture intact.

Sweet & Savory Toasted Nut Combo ■ Ingredients: 1 cup assorted shelled nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, your choice); 1/4 teaspoon sea salt; 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon; Cayenne pepper (to taste); 1/4 teaspoon powdered cumin; a dash of nutmeg; 1/4 cup brown sugar; 2 tablespoons butter (low-cholesterol version: use walnut, almond, sesame or sunflower oil); 1/2 cup dried cherries, cranberries or raisins (optional); 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. ■ Method: In a mixing bowl, combine salt and spices. Set aside. In a skillet, melt butter or heat oil on medium, add nuts and toast. Add remaining ingredients and teaspoon of water. Cook on low until sugar is melted. Spread mixture on parchment-lined cookie sheet and cool. Store in airtight containers. — kitchenshrink@san.rr.com

Nuts and seeds also have a habit of picking up tastes and odors of nearby foods, so it’s best to keep them in solitary confinement. Taste before use because a few rancid pieces can ruin a dish.

CRIME AND PUBLIC-SAFETY NEWS

When to call 9-1-1: Police provide a how-to guide for citizens BY OFFICER LARRY HESSELGESSER San Diego Police Department any people hesitate to call 9-1-1 because they are unsure if the situation is a true emergency. Emergencies include crimes that are in progress or about to happen, and ones that have resulted in serious personal injury, property damage or property loss. They also include situations in which the suspect may still be at the scene and some suspicious activities. By calling 9-1-1 you will be linked to the appropriate police as well as fire-fighting, medical and ambulance services. You don’t need money to call 9-1-1 from a pay phone. See Safety Tips for Parents to find out how to teach your children to use 9-1-1.

Several years ago, 9-1-1 calls from cellular phones were answered by the California Highway Patrol (CHP). CHP, in turn, transferred calls that were not freeway related to the appropriate jurisdiction for a response. Since then, the State of California has mandated that cellular phone companies modify their technology to route calls to the appropriate agencies. The larger cellular phone companies have met the established standards and can now send their calls to any agency ready to receive them. In June 2005, the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) began receiving 9-1-1 wireless calls placed within the City limits except those made from freeways, which are

still answered by CHP. In order for this service to work properly, callers need to contact their service provider to determine if they have GPS ready phones. They also have to activate their telephone GPS settings in order for the GPS module to pass along the caller location. Citizens should contact their service providers for detailed instructions. Caution: Wireless callers should NOT assume that SDPD will receive their exact location. When making a 9-1-1 call from a cellular phone, they should stay on the line and advise the dispatcher from where they are calling. At this early stage, testing has shown the GPS data is NOT exact enough to ensure emergency personnel will be able to locate the caller. In sum, if you think that a crime may be occurring, or that the safety of you or your neighbors may be at risk, don’t hesitate to call 9-1-1. You shouldn’t worry about using up police time. Calls to 9-1-1 will be prioritized based on availability of law enforcement. Even if you are unsure as to what is going on, the best thing to do is to let the police investigate. If you see someone knocking or ringing a neighbor’s doorbell late at night and they appear to be looking for a way in or checking a side gate that would be a 9-1-1 call. You will not get in trouble if this does not turn out to be an attempted crime in progress. — Originally posted at nextdoor.com

Ask Mr. Marketing BY ROB WEINBERG

There’s a partner for you

A

man walks into the post office … Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, doesn’t it? But there I was waiting to buy postage and I discovered a coupon jointly issued by Hallmark and the U.S. Postal Service. In truth I shouldn’t have been surprised. For the past few years the Postal Service has been getting increasingly commercial in an effort to overcome an annual $5 billion deficit. And because the USPS is a quasi-governmental agency receiving zero tax dollars, that money obviously has to come from someplace. So, a few years back they started selling ancillary items like packing supplies and greeting cards. Then they struck deals to feature animated characters on postage stamps, including Bambi, Big Bird and Daffy Duck. Today, stamps featuring Wonder Woman can be affixed to Snoopy greeting cards, both purchased at the postal counter. The tie-in between postage stamps and Hallmark greeting cards is a logical one. Post offices have a built-in customer traffic flow. Most cards get mailed and need stamps. What better place to tie the stamps, card, and customers together than there? Furthermore, free email graphics have been the source of headaches for Hallmark executives for a long time. If they can sell more cards and pay the USPS

a sales commission, everyone wins, right? Their plan is obvious; • Customer chooses a card from the multiple displays in the postal store lobby; • Coupon offers $1 off 3 cards if purchased before Feb. 17, 2017; • Customer buys two additional cards and stamps for mailing them The promotion’s demise date screams “Valentine’s Day,” though any cards sold there qualify for the discount. Now let’s examine your business. Odds are good there’s a potential partner for you, regardless of what you sell. Car dealerships can join forces with area gas stations. Bakeries can work with exercise studios, which, in turn, can partner with beverage companies. The USPS isn’t collecting buyers’ contact information, but there’s no reason you can’t. A list of buyers is incredibly valuable, since: • They like what you and your partner sell • You have an established relationship • They’re likely to buy from you again Partnerships must be carefully thought out and planned, but can be very successful if done right. Learn from the USPS and develop one today. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing. Get more partnership ideas for your business at askmrmarketing.com.

Four things to know about depression and heart disease TO YOUR HEALTH

M

ost people are familiar with the more well-known risk factors that can lead to heart disease such as a family history of heart problems or high cholesterol levels. What’s less known is the impact of depression on heart health. February is American Heart Month, so it’s a good time to take a deeper look at this important health topic. About one in 10 Americans aged 18 and older has depression, and it affects nearly twice as many women as men. “Through research and clinical experience, we are learning more about the relationship between depression and heart disease, including the role depression plays both before and after a heart attack or other cardiac problems particularly in women,” said Christina Adams, M.D., a cardiologist with the newly opened Scripps Women’s Heart Center. Here are six informative facts about how depression can affect the heart. 1. Depression can raise the risk of heart disease. Though the reasons are not fully understood, researchers know that even mild forms of depression and its symptoms increase the risk of a heart attack and heart disease. Depressed women are more than two times likely to experience sudden cardiac death than women who are not depressed. In fact, the American Heart Association now recommends screening all heart patients for depression using a simple questionnaire. 2. Depression can make it harder to recover from a heart attack or heart failure. Just as depression can raise the risk of heart disease, the opposite appears to be true: heart

disease can raise depression risk. Following a heart attack, cardiac event or heart surgery, it is not unusual for patients to experience depression. Studies show that up to 33 percent of heart attack patients feel depressed. Moreover, people with depression have a lower chance of recovery and a higher risk of another serious cardiac event or even death after a heart attack, most likely due to a combination of physiological and psychological factors. 3. Depression can trigger physiological changes that increase heart risk. “When a person is feeling stressed, the body releases more of the stress hormone cortisol, which has been linked with an increased risk of heart disease and heart attacks,” Dr. Adams said. Additionally, people with depression may have especially sticky platelets (the cells that cause blood to clot), high glucose levels and increased inflammation levels, all of which are risk factors for heart disease. 4. Depression can make it more difficult to care for your heart. It’s hard to maintain a heart-healthy lifestyle when you’re depressed. “The symptoms of depression, including feeling tired and having a lack of interest in activities, can make it challenging for people to take care of themselves and make healthy choices,” Dr. Adams said. To make matters worse, people may try to deal with their depression through comforting but harmful behaviors such as smoking, drinking alcohol or overeating. In fact, women with high levels of depression are more likely to be obese or smoke. “To Your Health” is brought to you by the physicians and staff of Scripps Health.

Home sales slow in January, as expected SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The number of homes that changed hands in San Diego County dropped last month, but the decrease was chalked up to a normal seasonal decline, the San Diego County Association of Realtors reported. Nearly 1,340 single-family homes sold locally in January, a 30 percent drop from December but just 10 fewer houses than were sold in January of last year, a change of less than 1 percent. The median sales price of a house last month was $559,500, which is 2 percent below the month before, but 6 percent higher than the same month last year. For attached homes like condominiums and townhouses, 670 changed hands in January, 27 percent below December but just 4 percent under January 2016.

The median sales price of a condo last month was $378,750, 4 percent over the month before and 8 percent above the level of the same month last year. “January is most often a slow month for home sales following the holidays and the end of the tax year, not to mention the welcome and ample rain may have kept people from venturing out to open houses,'' said SDAR President Bob Kevane. “Spring will be here soon enough, and that's when the market tends to heat up.” The SDAR also said the inventory of resale houses continued to be constricted. The most expensive property sold in the county last month was a 12,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom, 10-bath, Rancho Santa Fe estate, built in 1994, with a price of just over $6 million.

New, old stone coming back into style

(Family Features) Move over, marble and granite. There’s a new, old stone that’s coming back into vogue. After first coming into use 5,000 years ago, soapstone is once again becoming a “go-to” material for kitchen and bath designs, indoor and outdoor living spaces and more. There are three primary reasons for the revived interest in soapstone, according to Steven Schrenk, digital media director and design consultant at Polycor, who has been working with natural stone for 22 years. Aesthetics: One major factor driving soapstone’s appeal is shifting aesthetic trends. While designers and homeowners have been fascinated by the bright, wide range of colors and bold patterns that could be discovered in natural stone, people are coming back to a tonal, more muted palette, according to Schrenk. Schrenk sees more designers working with textures within a similar palette of color and playing up the tactile qualities of materials and patterns within that limited palette. “This is where soapstone plays well in pairing with these different finishes,” he said. “It tends to blend into its space and become more integrated in the whole design instead of being a separate, individual entity.” Another aesthetic benefit of soapstone is that multiple tonalities can be achieved depending on the finishing techniques. “It may be a cool, blue-gray color when left

in its natural honed state or a deep, sultry black when waxed or enhanced,” Schrenk said. “You can go from a highly figured, dramatic statement piece to a minimal and moody silky surface in the slabs that are neutral without veining.” Function: When it comes to home design, there’s no doubt that appearance is key, but so is a material’s ability to stand up to its task. Soapstone is nonporous, so it doesn’t stain. It’s softer than granite and marble, dense and heavy, but not brittle. It doesn’t chip easily, but if it does chip, it can be repaired with sandpaper. Those high-performance features make soapstone well-suited to serve numerous functions. Versatility: “No matter how you slice it, there are 101 ways to style soapstone; whereas with some other materials, there are more limitations,” Schrenk said. Because of the stone’s ability to absorb and radiate heat, it can be used for unique items, such as pizza ovens and foot warmers, says Glenn Bowman, owner of Vermont Soapstone. He has also seen soapstone used in a variety of everyday applications, both indoors and outdoors, including tiles, flooring, backsplashes, sinks and a variety of custom stonework.
