Train boiler costs are higher than expected BY STEVE DREYER Poway’s iconic steam locomotive should be chugging around Old Poway Park next fall once its boiler is replaced, members of the City Council will be told Tuesday night. The council will be asked to approve a contract to replace the boiler and related equipment at a cost of $360,500. That was the lower of two bids submitted. The low bidder, Hercules Powered Equipment, is located in Commerce, California. The second bidder is in Pennsylvania. Under terms of an agreement between the city and the volunteer Poway-Midland Railroad, the cost of the new boiler will be shared equally. The railroad will have 15 years to pay off the loan the city will make to it. The council gave its OK in June to solicit bids to replace a boiler that had been repaired several times in recent years, but had reached the point where a state inspection concluded that it had to been replaced. The engine was taken out of service last Christmas for normal maintenance and has not returned. A staff report prepared in June estimated the cost of a new boiler at between $180,000 and $250,000. The successful bidder pegged the cost at $291,000. The city and the railroad also agreed to add another $53,800 worth of items to the repair job, including new piping and insulation. SEE TRAIN, A13

Bagpiper Robert Burns leads veterans Louis Irvin, Dennis Rasmussen and Len Wall in to the veterans rally held Saturday in Old Poway Park. The rally, which drew about 100 attendees, was held to encourage people to contact the City Council about an affordable veterans housing project that three council members voted not to move forward on.

Tony Gwynn in state’s Hall of Fame BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Padres icon Tony Gwynn on Wednesday was inducted as a member of the 10th class of the state’s Hall of Fame. Gwynn grew up in Long Beach, played and coached baseball at San Diego State University and spent his 20 years in Major League Baseball with the Padres. He retired in 2001 as the most popular player in team — and perhaps city — history, and died of cancer 13 years later. Gwynn lived in Poway for many years. Others who will be inducted at a

ceremony in Sacramento are actors Harrison Ford and George Takei, author and human rights advocate Isabelle Allende, ex-first California first lady and media personality Maria Shriver, former Secretary of Defense William Perry, Tower Records founder Russ Solomon and artist Corita Kent. “These individuals exemplify the unique and boundless creativity of California,’’ Gov. Jerry Brown said when the honorees were announced. “Their work has enriched the lives of others and remains an inspiration to all

BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK The Backyard Produce Project, which provides fruits and vegetables to local families in need, has surpassed the 100-ton mark. “We’re just amazed and never thought at the beginning that this was in the realm of possibility,” said Jane Radatz, the project’s coordinator. “I’m thrilled with where it has gone.” She added, “We are so grateful to all the volunteers who work on the project, to all the community members who support us by donating their produce and to Sunshine Care for hosting the Backyard Produce Garden on (its) grounds.” Though the milestone was announced early last month — with 200,370 pounds of fruits and vegetables donated or grown since 2009 — Radatz said the group will not celebrate its achievement until the spring. The all-volunteer project began in early 2009 in response to the Great Recession’s impact on Poway Unified School District families who were reportedly having difficulty putting healthy food on their tables. PUSD school counselors took their concerns for these families to the Palomar Health Community Action Council, a group of representatives from service groups and other entities, to see what assistance was available. According to Radatz, a council member made the comment, “It’s too bad how much citrus goes to waste in everybody’s yards.” From that comment grew the idea to ask residents to donate their excess homegrown fruits and vegetables they could not eat and through the Rancho Bernardo-based Friends & Family Community Connection, which has a food distribution program, get the donated produce to those in need. Many recipients are referred by school counselors, administrators and teachers. Others are recommended by religious leaders or limited income residential programs. A majority of recipients live in Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos, 4S Ranch, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs and Del Sur. After the initial monthly donation project was well underway, Radatz and other volunteers started thinking up ways the project could expand. To help locals unable to pick fruit from their trees, volunteers formed picking teams, going to gardens when invited and harvesting ripe fruit from branches the owners could not reach. Project leaders also looked to expand the produce offerings. Citrus is very popular in the area, as are gardens filled with tomatoes and lettuce, according to Radatz. To offer greater variety, including apples, peaches, green beans and other fruits and vegetables, a partnership was formed by early 2010 with Sunshine Care in Poway. The senior facility donated land, water and some gardening expertise, and volunteers started growing crops organically. Each team of volunteers typically tends the garden a few hours once a week, and combined they work in it most days by planting, weeding, watering and harvesting. The garden now covers more than 6,000 square feet, includes an orchard and provides produce year-round.

Teresa Chartz and Linda Bouchard are two of the community volunteers who tend the Backyard Produce Garden and pick residential fruit trees as part of the Backyard Produce Project. Radatz said over the past seven years more than 160 volunteers have been involved in some aspect of the project. “Some have moved on, some are still with us,” she said. “We are grateful to them all.” In October the tree picking team gathered 1,315 pounds of fruits. Radatz said starting in December and continuing through March they will be especially busy as citrus ripen during one of the area’s peak growing seasons, so more volunteers would be gladly welcome. When a garden owner contacts the project, a volunteer goes out to best determine when harvesting should occur. Then an email is sent out asking for volunteers for a specific date and time. Volunteers can use a ladder or long-range tools if they prefer to stay on the ground. They go in teams of four or five and Radatz said most are retirees. Those with a green thumb who would like to work in the project’s garden are also desired, she said. Training is provided. As for those with produce to donate, there are many locations accepting fruits and vegetables multiple times a week. Produce is accepted from 9 a.m. to noon every Thursday in the Seven Oaks Community Center’s north parking lot, 16789 Bernardo Oaks Drive in Rancho Bernardo; the porch of 16770 Santanella Street in 4S Ranch; and the RB Halley Fine Homes lobby, 12396 World Trade Drive Suite 306 in Carmel Mountain Ranch. It can also be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. each Monday in the Rancho Family YMCA lobby, 9410 Fairgrove Lane in Rancho Penasquitos. Also leave from 3 to 6 p.m. each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at The Community Food Connection, 14047 Twin Peaks Road in Building C. Those requesting a tree picking team to assist them harvest can call 858-722-2179. To become a volunteer, contact Radatz at jradatz@att.net or 858-485-5449.

104-year-old Poway veteran heading to Pearl Harbor for 75th anniversary BY EMILY SORENSEN The oldest Pearl Harbor survivor will traveling to Hawaii on Dec. 3 to attend the memorial for the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Ray Chavez, who is 104 years old and lives in Poway, will be accompanied on his trip by his daughter Kathleen, active duty San Diego firefighter/paramedic Mitch Mendler and Joe Torrillo, a retired New York firefighter lieutenant who survived the collapse of both World Trade Center towers on 9/11. Chavez was assigned to the minesweeper USS Condor at Pearl Harbor and was asleep at home in nearby Ewa Beach after a minesweeping mission when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Chavez returned to the harbor to help after his wife woke him to tell him about the attack and stayed for over a week on active duty, according to a press release. He then spent the next 50 years avoiding talking about the incident. There are currently fewer than 2,000 American survivors of Pearl Harbor still living. Chavez is the oldest known Pearl Harbor survivor, though until recently, 102-year-old Colorado resident James Downing was credited as the oldest. He has visited Pearl Harbor and his fellow survivors several times over the past 25 years, but acknowledged in a press release that this will likely be his last visit. Chavez was one of only seven able to attend last year’s Pearl Harbor commemoration. “I still feel a loss,” Chavez said in a press release. “We were all together. We were friends and brothers. I feel close to all of them.” A regular guest of honor at Memorial Day

Tickets still available for RB Chorale’s holiday show Concert to be held Dec. 16-18 in Poway BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK The RB Chorale’s popular holiday concert is returning with three shows in Poway. The 42nd annual production, dubbed “Sing Noel and More,” can be seen at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 16 and Saturday, Dec. 17 plus 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18. Founder and director Pat Bean said tickets for all three performances are still available, but predicted the Sunday tickets will be gone quickly since in recent years that has typically sold out. The 120 singers, dancers and musicians will fill the Poway Center for the Performing Arts stage at 14598 Espola Road. Because the group of local singers is known for doing a lot of Broadway numbers, Bean said they are going to conclude Act I with “A Musical!” from “Something Rotten!” “It explains what is musical is all about,” she said, adding Paul Finley and Dixon Lianderal will lead the group

The audience is going to love it as we go into intermission.” As in years past, the majority of songs will be representative of the upcoming holidays, with Christmas and Hanukkah tunes among selections. They will range in style and some will be from Christmas movies, she said. Per tradition, there will also be a patriotic number to honor veterans in the audience. This

year it will be “God Bless the USA.” Bean said there will be more speciality numbers than is typical, with five planned. They are “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” sung by Dori Sanchez and Ed Berger; “Merry Christmas, Darling” sung by Peggy Dixon, whom Bean said sounds like Karen Carpenter, who originally sang it; and “The Christmas Song” performed by Cloyd Bedke, the show’s set designer and a founding RB Chorale member.

Leah McBride,

Your Home Loan Resource, is Also a Proud Community Volunteer.

Newcomer Colin Cruickshank will sing “O Holy Night” and Peggy Dixon, Diane LaRue, Renee Christensen, Brian Castle and Robert Blais will do an a cappella version of “Carol of the Bells.” The audience will be invited to join the group in singing the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah” and Santa Claus will make an appearance to distribute goodies to children, Bean said. Tickets are $32 for preferred

Pat Bean seating; $22 for general admission; $20 for seniors (55 and older), students (ages 13 to 18) and active duty military; and $7 for children (ages 1-12).

BY EMILY SORENSEN Several Poway residents were among 29 hikers who travel to Peru in October to hike Machu Picchu to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s disease and stem-cell therapy research. The hikers, nine of whom have Parkinson’s, hiked 28 miles over seven days in the Peruvian Andes, on the Salkantay portion of the Inca trail. One of those days was a 12-mile hike at 15,000 feet. The hikers hailed from around San Diego, including Poway; Boise, Idaho; Atlanta and Seattle. While this was the first hike for some, others have hiked Mount Kilimanjaro with the organization in the past and some have climbed Mount Whitney. The Powegians who hiked to Machu Picchu are Elena Andrews and her daughter Tess, Michele and Ken Schreiner, and Chris and Paul Schwan, hiking on behalf of Chris Schwan’s father. The hike benefitted Summit for Stem Cell, a non-profit group of patients, patient advocates, clinicians and scientists who are working on leading-edge stem cell treatments for Parkinson’s disease. The group is funding a new long-term treatment that takes a patient’s own skin cells and transforms them into dopamine neurons, with the goal of transplanting them back into the patient’s brain. This will replace those neurons lost in the progression of the disease with the expectation that it will significantly lessen the motor-movement impairment from Parkinson’s disease, according to a press release from Summit for Stem Cell. Parkinson’s disease attacks nerve cells in a part of the brain called the substantia nigra, which is one of the main manufacturers of dopamine. Reduced dopamine production interferes with transmission of signals to muscles and hampers movement and speech. The hikers paid all their own expenses, $2,200 for the trek, plus airfare. They were also required to raise a minimum of $2,000 in donations for the Summit for Stem Cell Research. The group raised about $120,000. Andrews, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2011, said the best part of

Elena and Tess Andrews, hiking the trail to Machu Picchu in Peru. the trip was having people come together for such a great cause. “It was beautiful (having people come together),” she said. “It’s an amazing place, but the nicest thing was the relationships that developed on the trip. It shows what people can do together.” She said spending time with her 22-year-old daughter Tess was also a highlight of the trip. “That’s something you can’t replicate,” she said. “I was really blessed to be able to take this trip with her.” Andrews said Summit for Stem Cell was a cause she has been supporting for a long time. This is the first hike she has undertaken with the organization. The hikers began training for their epic trip six months before leaving for Peru. Andrews said she started training late March or early April, hiking local trails three times a week. “Altitude was one of the biggest factors,” she said, “but I trained enough that it didn’t affect me too badly.” Andrews said she was able to do the hike because she has kept active since her diagnosis in 2011. “Keeping active is one of the main things that helps (with Parkinson’s disease),” she said. “I do a lot of exercise and activities (to keep fit).” For more information on Summit for Stem Cell and its research, visit summitforstemcell.org.

BY EMILY SORENSEN A rally held in Old Poway Park on Saturday drew a large crowd of supporters, aiming to have the Poway City Council rescind its 3-2 vote not to support San Diego Habitat for Humanity’s for-sale housing project for veterans on Twin Peaks Road. The event was organized by Michael Cunningham, the brother of City Councilman Jim Cunningham, who has been the project’s strongest council advocate. Cunningham was one of the two yes votes for the project with City Councilman John Mullin, also in attendance, the other. The council voted on Nov. 15 not to allow the 22-unit housing development to move forward. The development would provide low- and moderate-income

housing for veterans and their families. The rally drew several speakers, including Cunningham, Congressman Scott Peters and former Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher, who spoke in favor of the housing project and encouraged people to call the three members of the council to try and change their minds about the vote before the Dec. 6 city council meeting. Cunningham said that the rally aimed to undo what he “believes to be an injustice that has befallen our veterans,” and that he believed the majority of Poway residents would agree with him. He said that the council’s 3-2 vote potentially killed the dreams of veterans to move into low-incoming housing, and he called for Powegians to contact Steve

NEWS BRIEFS Firefighters are collecting toys San Diego Fire-Rescue is holding its annual Toys for Tots holiday toy drive. Bring a new, unwrapped toy through Wednesday, Dec. 14 to any city fire station, including Station No. 33 at 16966 Bernardo Center Drive in Rancho Bernardo and Station No. 42 at 12119 World Trade Drive in Carmel Mountain Ranch. Toys for infants through 12 years are requested, but there is a special need for the 6-12 ages. For other stations, go to sandiego.gov/fire. The Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District is also holding its annual Toys for Tots holiday toy drive. Bring a new, unwrapped toy through Monday, Dec. 19 to any RSFFPD fire station, including Station No. 2 at 16930 Four Gee Road in 4S Ranch. For other stations, go to rsf-fire.org.

Musical entertainment was provided by "The Mighty Untouchables." Vaus, Dave Grosch and Barry Leonard to try and convince them to rescind their no votes. Cunningham said that they were good people, but on the wrong track with veterans. “I will never leave anyone behind,” said Cunningham. “I will never abandon this project.” Peters commented on the amount of homeless veterans around San Diego County and said that in order to help veterans find homes, cities has to provide that housing. “There are not enough units for veterans,” Peters said. Peters also said that with 15,000 housing units in Poway, adding 22 more should

not cause a traffic problem. “You want to know how to really thank veterans for their service? Give them a place to live,” said Peters. “We need to turn the hearts of the city council, don’t leave veterans behind.” Both Cunningham and Peters said that $100,000 had been raised for the project, which Peters said “made the deal sweeter” and that there was no reason for the council not to change their minds. Fletcher said that while there are often nice words for veterans, it takes more than words to help and that the 22 units in the housing development would have a real impact for 22 veterans and their families.

He also said that Poway was a community that takes care of its own, as just as it came together to help protect children in the aftermath of Chelsea King’s murder, it needs to come together for veterans. “This is an opportunity (for the council) to do the right thing,” Fletcher said, “And stand with veterans with their votes and their actions.” Lori Holt Pfeiler, the president and CEO of San Diego Habitat for Humanity, which was going to build the housing development, said that there were more than 100 veterans who had expressed interest to Habitat for Humanity in living at the development.

FROM TRAIN, A1 It will cost $16,000 to have the old boiler shipped to Commerce so that an exact, one-of-a-kind copy can be made. The council is slated to amend the agreement with the railroad to reflect the sharing of an extra $180,250 in costs. Railroad President Chuck Cross said that if all goes as planned, the new boiler will be in Poway by next July and the engine should be back in service by mid-September. “No. 3,” as the locomotive is known, was purchased in 1987 along with the balance of the estate of John S. Porter. After buying it in 1960 from a Vista man, Porter built a small station, house and shed on what is now part of Old Poway Park and operated what he called the “Poway Village and

‘Snow’ much fun planned for Saturday in RB park BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK Snow is returning to Rancho Bernardo Community Park. The second annual “Snow in the Park” will be held from noon to 4 p.m. this Saturday in the park at 18448 W. Bernardo Drive. Admission and activities are free for all ages. There will also be a variety of free and low-cost refreshments available. The Rancho Bernardo Recreation Council is putting on the event, with support from the Rancho Bernardo Community Council. Recreation Center Director Eric McDonald said this year’s event will be bigger than last year’s event, which attracted an estimated 2,000 attendees, ranging from infants to seniors. “This year we (will) have more than 50 percent more snow, at least four sled runs, which will mean a lot less time in lines,” he said. Sleds will be provided or bring your own. As for other offerings, they include a 60-foot inflatable obstacle course, a toddler jumper, carnival games with prizes, holiday games and coloring activities. The community council is providing free hot cocoa, cookies and photos with Santa or by the Hanukkah decorations. It is also sponsoring some of the activities and is asking attendees to bring a new, unwrapped toy or game for the Polinsky Children’s Center. As for the refreshments available for purchase — priced at $1 or less — they will include hot dogs, cotton candy, shaved ice and popcorn. For more information, call 858-538-8129.

Interfaith Thanksgiving event draws 300 An estimated 300 people attended the Poway Interfaith Team’s eighth annual Thanksgiving program, held at Temple Adat Shalom on Nov. 16. Members of the Jewish, Hindu, Unification, Muslim, Baha’i, Christian, Sikh and New Thought faiths spoke, and the attendees were entertained by Cantor Lori Frank and the Simchat Shabbat Band, the Community Church Joyful Awakening Band and the youth choir from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The color guard from Boy Scout Troop 681 presented the colors and the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the program, and the multi-faith congregation stood and sang “God Bless America.” Rev. Dr. Stephen Albert, Poway Interfaith Team’s 2017 president, announced that San Diego is the location for next year’s North American Interfaith Network’s “Connect” conference and the Poway Interfaith Team is the lead host of the event. For four days, Aug. 6-10, 500 people from around the world will gather at UC San Diego to discuss, “Harmony: Journey to One Heart.” Mornings will be filled with keynote speakers and breakout sessions, and in the afternoons attendees will be bused

Speakers who participated in the Poway Interfaith Team Thanksgiving service. to local faith centers and historic sites. “This will be the largest interfaith conference ever to be held in California,” Albert said. “All the interfaith groups in San Diego County are working together to make this unique conference special for all who attend. We especially want to welcome our young adult leaders (ages 18-35) to attend and dialogue with those

who have been involved in the interfaith movement for some time. To that end, for every $200 donated to the Poway Interfaith Team, it will sponsor a young adult to attend the four-day conference.” Although registration for the conference does not start until mid-January, those interested pre-register and save a space among the maximum of 500 attendees by going to powayinterfaithteam.com.

OPINION

www.pomeradonews.com

GUEST COMMENTARY

It’s not about the veterans BY CHARLES RISTORCELLI s a veteran of 35 years U.S. Navy service and a Poway resident, I am compelled to comment about the brouhaha surrounding the City Council decision regarding so called “veterans housing” on Twin Peaks Road. The City Council’s Nov. 15 vote had absolutely nothing to do with veteran support. Wrapping the project in patriotic propaganda, the lack of transparency in the deliberations surrounding the plan and the failure of Poway officials to demonstrate commitment to solve the real reason for neighborhood opposition to the affordable housing resulted in completely unfulfillable expectations. As presented for council vote, the plan would supposedly result in homes reserved for veterans. But veterans are not a legally “protected class” for affordable housing. A veteran would be able to buy one if he or she met affordable housing financial guidelines. But proponents allowed the debate to morph into the appearance of the homes being restricted to veteran occupancy. The lack of transparency was the failure of the plan’s proponents to give a simple answer to a question repeatedly asked at multiple town hall and council meetings with residents. Was it legal to restrict ownership to only veterans? That is what nearby residents wanted to know. The answers provided to the question were always given in terms assuring that the project’s lawyers knew how to do so. The real answer is no. Obviously not the proponents’ desired answer. Poway officials failed to address another reason for resident opposition to the affordable housing project. Opposition was rooted in the continuing failure of the city to execute any project that eliminates the terrible traffic congestion existing for years on Twin Peaks Road, where the project was planned. It could only get worse with the project’s completion. The unfortunate discord in the council and throughout San Diego County can be simply summed up in a trite-but-true phrase: You can’t put lipstick on a pig. It will still be ugly, as was the proposed housing development.

OUR READERS WRITE Adams remains relevant

Local election reality

Recently I have struggled to sleep through the night. I can’t get recent events out of my head. To try to put things in perspective, I have turned my computer off, avoided TV and started reading again, specifically “Founding Brothers” by Joseph J. Ellis. It is about America’s formation and our not-so-clean break from English tyranny. One of the main sources for this book are the actual letters between former founders and presidents, Adams and Jefferson. The prose of these two men is incredible and the arguments are logically developed regarding what they saw as the country’s future and its vital political structure. One quotation from Adams, regarding the original political parties, could have been written just yesterday: “Both parties have excited artificial terrors.” He was referring to how each party was so adamant in attacking the other’s principles that each party created incredible lies about its opponent just to propel its own agenda. Sound familiar? Tweeting short-sighted responses on Twitter at 3 a.m. because his vice-president-elect is booed, how ironic, at a play about Hamilton, now becomes a “badly” rebellious act threatening the nation. Even though the Civil War almost killed our founders’ dream, we still have a vision that our republic is great if we just stop trying to start another one. OK, I got that out of my system, so maybe now I can at least get a nap in. Al Finley Poway

If, as you suggest in your Nov. 17 editorial, the two reelected Poway City Council members “interpret their ballot success as a sign of voter confidence in the current council,” they are not merely wearing rose-colored glasses, they are wearing blinders. Neither of them received even 30 per cent of the vote. This means that over 70 percent of Poway voters wanted something different than the current council. Think what the vote would have been had there been fewer candidates for the council and had the city council not passed an ordinance denying challengers for public office the right to put their campaign signs where most people can see them. It is difficult to overcome the built-in advantage of incumbents when they prevent their opponents from getting their message to the voters. Charles R. McKirdy Poway

Housing vote ‘disappointing’ The Poway City Council’s Nov. 15 decision not to proceed with housing for veterans is extremely disappointing. Your article for Veterans Day, just five days earlier, reported about honoring veterans. However, the leadership of the city is sadly lacking in gratitude and honor. Habitat for Humanity and other organizations are helping with this project. SEE LETTERS, A25

Common Sense BY DICK LYLES

Disadvantaged have been conned too long

P

er the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, a total of 60 law enforcement officers died in firearms-related incidents between Jan. 1 and Nov. 23 of this year. This marks a 46 percent increase over last year and a 54 percent increase since the final year of President Bush’s term in 2008. Another month remains before an annual total can be calculated so the final tally can only worsen. Even more alarming are the 20 ambush-style attacks that have occurred this year, compared to eight in 2015, representing a 150 percent increase. Some of these attacks occurred while the officers were writing a report or dining at a restaurant. Some officers were ambushed

while responding to 911 calls. Five were shot by a sniper concealed in a building. Most were assassinated without warning. Much of the conversation surrounding these incidents has focused on race relations. Although racial issues have fueled negative feelings, many of the officers killed were minorities. The rage driving the assassins’ behavior in most cases was a much deeper resentment of government in general, and specifically, authority figures that represent the government. Unfortunately, local law enforcement officers are the most visible, most accessible and most vulnerable symbol of our government. The frustration and resentment that animates the hatred of too many Americans

The Straight Dope BY WILL WOOTON

Surgeon general’s report a ‘huge step’

T

he first surgeon general’s report directly addressing substance abuse has been released. For years drugs and alcohol have been simple side notes in their reports. Finally this issue that has devastated families for decades gets the attention it deserves. The simple failure of the “lock-up-addicts” model has reached the tipping point. Education, prevention, understanding, compassion and treatment are now becoming the overwhelming solution for us all. No longer can anyone say that addiction hasn’t affected their lives. The numbers are staggering in both financial costs and in human lives. Below is

a section from the surgeon general’s executive summary, highlighting the report: “Neighborhoods and communities as a whole are also suffering as a result of alcohol- and drug-related crime and violence, abuse and neglect of children, and the increased costs of health care associated with substance misuse. It is estimated that the yearly economic impact of substance misuse is $249 billion for alcohol misuse and $193 billion for illicit drug use. “Despite the social and economic costs, this is a time of great opportunity. Ongoing health care and criminal justice reform efforts, as well as advances in clinical,

is multi-pronged and pervades almost every sector of our culture. It is a hate that has turned America against itself. Nothing could be more self-destructive than attacking the people who have dedicated their careers to protecting us. Historians will reflect on the Obama presidency as one of the most divisive in history. Rather than striving for the unity he promised, he has inspired a divisiveness unprecedented in our lifetimes. The concept of a truly diverse society has been discarded in favor of a pervasive selfishness wherein many feel nothing — even the lives of caring public servants — matters except the pursuit of their own personal gratifications. Certain segments of society have a right to be frustrated. For example, Mr. Obama promised blacks a ton of progress, yet during his administration they’ve lost grown on every front (mean income, net worth, employment, home ownership and health benefits). They’re disappointed on every level, but won’t blame Mr. Obama, because he’s the first black president. They go along when he blames everyone else. Rather than learn from his failures, they rage at “the government” and target cops. The worst kind of leaders are those who hear their followers’ concerns and then attempt to appease their emotions by

directing their anger somewhere else. The problem with this strategy is it doesn’t solve the real problem. The people remain angry. If they’re angry enough, they take their anger out on someone. The best leaders are those who solve the problems, rather than pass the blame because eventually most people figure out whether they were helped or conned. The disadvantaged in this country have been conned for too long. Although their frustrations are legitimate, the focus of their anger is invalid. Cops are not society’s enemy. I’ve worked with literally hundreds of law enforcement officers at every level during my career. Every single one was dedicated to the highest standards of safety and service without regard to race, creed or ethnicity. It’s time to speak out: to our neighbors about the good work our law enforcement community does day in and out; to our officers about how much they are appreciated; and to those who might be angry about the true source of their problems. Simultaneously we need to stop the con and permanently solve the problems of the disadvantaged to restore integrity to America. Lyles, a Poway resident, is a management consultant and best-selling author.

research, and information technologies are creating new opportunities for increased access to effective prevention and treatment services. “Historically, our society has treated addiction and misuse of alcohol and drugs as symptoms of moral weakness or as a willful rejection of societal norms, and these problems have been addressed primarily through the criminal justice system. Our health care system has not given the same level of attention to substance use disorders as it has to other health concerns that affect similar numbers of people. Substance use disorder treatment in the United States remains largely segregated from the rest of health care and serves only a fraction of those in need of treatment. Only about 10 percent of people with a substance use disorder receive any type of specialty treatment. Further, over 40 percent of people with a substance use disorder also have a mental health condition, yet fewer than half (48.0 percent) receive treatment for either disorder.” This report marks a turning point, much like smokers in the 1950’s when the surgeon general first reported about the dangers of tobacco. It’s a huge step in the

right direction. Smoking did not stop overnight but it started a public belief system shift. This shift has seen smoking-related deaths drop decade by decade since. Addiction must be viewed as a health issue not a criminal or moral one. We all know drugs are bad. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that harmful substances that kill shouldn’t be ingested, yet over 27 million Americans reported current use or illicit drugs and over 66 million reported binge drinking in the last month. This has been the elephant in the room of more families then we think. We need to learn to separate the addiction as a medical problem and the behaviors that accompany it (the lies, theft, failures, motivation, betrays). We can change how we target and effectively treat it. We all know the war on drugs hasn’t worked and it’s a problem we need to address. I hope that this report validates what many of us already feel.

Palomar Health exec among best paid in state BY MORGAN COOK The top executive at Palomar Health District earned more than $841,200 in wages last year, making him the fourth-highest-paid special district employee in the state, according to 2015 data. The CEO, Robert A. Hemker, was one of three employees at special districts in San Diego County to be paid more than $500,000 last year, according to data compiled by the state controller and the open government group Transparent California. The three — two Palomar Health executives and the chief executive officer for Tri-City Hospital District — were among the 14 special district employees throughout the state to crack the half-million-dollar pay mark.

Adding in the costs of their retirement, health and other benefits, compensation for the three San Diego special district employees ranged from $674,000 to $965,000, the data showed. Kyle Packham, a spokesman for the California Special Districts Association, said employees of special districts provide focused, essential services, and so must often hire from a relatively small pool of people with particular qualifications and specific expertise. “In order to provide the most efficient and effective services to their community, it’s crucial that they hire and retain the best talent available, competitive with all sectors, including the private sector,” Packham said. Palomar Health has annual net revenue of

about $700 million, and employs about 4,400 people. It provides health care in Escondido, Poway, San Marcos, Ramona, Julian, Valley Center and elsewhere. At more than 800 square miles, it bills itself as the largest public health district by area in California. Hemker’s compensation is a sound investment for taxpayers, said district spokesman Chris Saunders. During Hemker’s two-year tenure at the helm, the district has turned around its finances and been rewarded with a better bond rating, Saunders said. The district recently announced the better rating will allow it to restructure its bond debt, saving $82.9 million over time. The district will pass certain savings on to homeowners, who will save $2.01 per $100,000 of

The No. 2 paid special district employee in the county in 2015 was Palomar’s general counsel Janine Sarti. She has since left her job as general counsel and has been replaced by Daniel Steeber, Saunders said.

Then and Now BY MARY SHEPARDSON

Tempering the temperance movement

P

oway was quite a hotbed of the temperance movement in the last decades of the 19th century. The Independent Order of Good Templars, founded in 1851, was an international organization promoting total abstinence from alcohol. By the mid-1880s, members had built a lodge in Poway with the aim of fighting intemperance by “education and arousing public opinion.” The lodge was Poway’s first public building and was the center for many activities. Community Church met there before their own building was completed a year or so later. It even served briefly as Poway High School in the 1890s. It still exists, in much-altered form, as Templars Hall in Old Poway Park. Not everybody in town, of course, was on board with the temperance movement. Twenty Mile House (near the Big Stone Lodge area) served as a place for stagecoach passengers on the San Diego-to-Escondido route to stop for lunch halfway through their day-long trip. It was notorious as the place where the proprietor, Daniel Dodson, shot his stepdaughter’s beau, but was acquitted of murder when pigs got into the courthouse and consumed the victim’s heart before it could be presented as evidence. Among the locals, it was probably more notorious because it offered hard liquor along with the food, a grave offense in the eyes of many residents. Not far north of Twenty Mile House was Luce Corner, situated on the east side of Pomerado Road, roughly between Oak Knoll and Poway Road. There, Christopher Luce built his home, a general store and his own Baptist church. According to the memoirs of Bernard Bowron, the Rev. Luce was a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. “On Sundays when he put on his trusty, long-tailed black coat and ascended his homemade pulpit, he was a fiery preacher,” condemning most other religions and especially the Twenty Mile house for its liquor sales. As a substitute, his store dispensed “soft drinks.” They were, Bowron recalled, “the hottest stuff that ever went down a gullet…One of these soft drinks was Jamaica Juice. I’ll bet it was 99% pure alcohol, and burnt like fire.” Templars Hall continued through the 1890s as a bastion of the temperance movement, and of extreme restraint in general, earning frequent mentions in the weekly Poway Progress newspaper. Meetings were held each Friday, featuring guest speakers for the cause as well as suitable entertainment. It hosted debates on such topics as

Templars Hall continued through the 1890s as a bastion of the temperance movement, and of extreme restraint in general, earning frequent mentions in the weekly Poway Progress newspaper.

“Resolved That City Life is Preferable to County Life.” (Members concluded that it wasn’t.) Historian Gordon Stuart in his book, “San Diego Back Country 1901,” relates the tale of its undoing. “At each meeting of the lodge, there was a grand march. Dancing was not permitted in the hall. The difference in marching and dancing was that in the former one could pick up his feet and put them down without flourishes. No jigging or sliding the feet was permitted — that constituted dancing… “One faction of Poway residents wished to hold dances in the hall. Because it had once been used as a church, another group bitterly fought such a plan… “The controversy finally was resolved at a social gathering in the hall. Arthur (Dick) Sikes walked from the back of the hall down the platform, followed by his faithful companion, Frank Foster. Under his arm, Foster carried a long white cardboard box. “Sikes was courageous. He seated Foster on a chair on the platform and commanded ‘Begin.’ From the box, Foster whipped out his fiddle and began a gay tune. Three couples appeared on the lodge floor and the dance was on. “The non-dancers, shocked and declaring the temple had been desecrated, arose from their seats and walked from the hall.” But it wasn’t just dance that won the day, according to Stuart’s report. Supporters of dancing held a mass initiation, putting their hands over their hearts and swearing the oath. “After the initiation the dozen drinkers gathered outside the hall and killed a quart of the best whiskey a dollar could buy.” As a result of the action, the Poway lodge stopped paying dues to, and was outlawed by, the Grand Lodge. The dances held there proved to be a huge success, drawing patrons from all over inland North County. Shepardson is vice-president of the Poway Historical and Memorial Society.

PHS closes season with 10th-place finish at state

Malia Kay helped the Nighthawks win the program’s first San Diego Section championship.

JENI KAY

Athlete of the Week

LEAVING HER MARK Kay's final chapter with Nighthawks nearly perfect

BY TERRY MONAHAN The first time Ashton O’Halloran saw Malia Kay play volleyball was at age 14 on a travel ball team. Besides being able to hit kill shots as an outside hitter, Kay also showed she was a perfectionist. “She really tried to play perfect,’’ said O’Halloran, now the coach at Del Norte. “I was a similar type player, so we’ve had a few discussions about that. “She’s trying to learn how to control that. Her maturity has helped her gain that control without losing the passion she has. “The last thing I want is for her to lose her passion.’’ Kay has not lost an ounce of her passion for both volleyball and for Del Norte.

This year she helped the Nighthawks win the Palomar League title in their first year in that league after winning titles in Valley League (2012-13) and Avocado East (2014-15). And Kay was front and center when Del Norte claimed the San Diego Section Division I championship this season. “What a great season,’’ the 5-foot-10 hitter said. “I have a great spot to put that banner in the gym, and it’s right in the middle of the gym.’’

After beating Otay Ranch 25-16, 26-24, 27-25 for the section title, Del Norte rallied to eliminate Elsinore 16-25, 14-25, 25-15, 25-21, 17-15 in the opening round of the state tournament before suffering a 25-23, 25-15, 27-25 loss to Glendora. “I felt really good about rallying against Elsinore after such a terrible start,’’ Kay said. “I had six kills in that last set when we finished it off. “After the second set, coach just said we worked so hard

and that we had to push through it.’’ The loss to Glendora, which was ousted by Cathedral Catholic, was particularly hurtful because it ended the season for good. “Right after that loss,’’ Kay said, “it was really emotional in the team room. “We’ll never be together as this team again. We were laughing, crying. It was real sad.’’ Del Norte wound up with a 23-11 overall record. Kay finished the championship season as the Nighthawks’ leader in kills with 316, a slight improvement from the 224 kills she recorded in 2015. Besides playing for Coast Volleyball Club now, Kay is SEE KAY, B4

The thrilling season the Poway High boys cross country team produced concluded with a 10th-place finish in Division II at the CIF State Cross Country Championships on Saturday at Woodward Park in Fresno. The seven seniors who made up the Titans were led by Jarett Chinn’s 16th-place finish. He crossed the tape of the 3.1-mile course in 15-minutes, 43.5 seconds. Following Chinn was Michael Downs (47th place, 16:03.4), Tyler Neal (86th, 16:21.1), Kit Carter (90th, 16:23.0), Kyle Kesler (102nd, 16:29.3), Zach Kraft (121st, 16:37.7) and Cameron Hirsch (137th, 16:50.4). Poway, which captured the San Diego Section Division II title by one point over Mt. Carmel, turned in its best season since winning the Division I section title in 2009. Del Norte placed 14th in Division II. The Nighthawks were led by junior Jaron Farnham, who finished in 53rd MONTE UMSTED with a time of 16:07.0. Freshman sensation Zev Feidelberg was right Poway High’s behind in 69th place (16:13.04). Michael Downs Seniors Igor Landa (99th, 16:28.2) and during the San Diego Section Cross Matthew Earney (106th, 16:31.1) and Country junior Jake Kim (119th, 16:36.7) Championships. rounded out the top five for Del Norte. Also racing in Division II from Rancho Bernardo was Fuyuki and Senri Kuroiwa. The two stayed close the entire way, as Fuyuki came in 48th place in a time of 16:04.2 and Senri in 50th in 16:05.1.

Girls Rancho Bernardo High placed 17th in Division II, led by Kassady Learn’s 51st place finish. She came in at 18:57.7. Just behind her was junior Ali Harper, who finished the 3.1-mile course in 19:09.8. Imogen Bleakley (129th, 20:05.7), Alyssa Tivadar (130th, 20:06.1) and Allison Boaz (148th, 20:21.7) rounded out the top five for the Broncos. Del Norte junior Hannah Zheng finished in 56th place in Division II. She finished in 19:00.3. Poway freshman Katie Downs finished in 19:12.5 and in 72nd place.

Prep Football

Broncos' incredible run comes to an end at Helix BY MICHAEL BOWER Milan Grice was being attended to by trainers after being wheeled off the football field at Helix High with under two minutes to go in the game. Quarterback Mark Salazar took a knee and stayed right by his running back’s side as the clock was winding down on Rancho Bernardo High’s season. Tears were streaming down the faces of several players. Cheerleaders were crying, too. It was a heartbreaking scene on the Broncos sideline as second-seeded Helix ran out the final minute of its 28-10 victory over No. 3 Rancho Bernardo Friday night in a San Diego Section Open Division semifinal game. There you had Grice, who has arguably been the heart of the offense for the last two-plus years, hurting with what appeared to be a knee injury. You had the Fresno State-bound Salazar, who seemed to always play his best in the biggest of games throughout his prep career, spending the final moments of his last high school season comforting a teammate. Then you had the overwhelming emotion of it all being over: The 20-game win streak, the final football game ever for most seniors and the final game of the season for others. Combine it all and you can see why it was such an emotional finish for the Broncos and their fans. But the sadness of it all shouldn’t last long not with all that this group has accomplished over the past two, and for some, three

This season they can tack on an appearance in the semifinals of the Open Division, a spot reserved for the top four teams in the county. “This is an amazing group,” Rancho

Where Men Can Be Men

Bernardo coach Tristan McCoy said. “The thing I am most proud of about this group is that we were able to win and win the right way. Every time they took the field they did it right and kept it classy.” You have to go all the way back to October 9, 2015 to find the Broncos’ last loss (20-17 to Westview) before Friday night. This will be the first time in three years Rancho Bernardo will not be playing for a section championship. But that and the loss of the 20-game win streak means little in the big picture to these guys. “These last few years have been amazing,” said Broncos senior linebacker Ramon Colon, who piled up the tackles against Helix. “The

wins are not what is important. The love is real with this team and we loved every moment being out there together.” It didn’t turn out how the Broncos hoped it would against Helix, who will face No. 1 Cathedral Catholic on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Southwestern College in the Open Division championship game. The Highlanders defense bottled up Grice, the Palomar League Offensive Player of the Year, for four quarters and registered four sacks. The Helix offense showed tremendous balance, rushing for over 220 yards and passing for 196. The Highlanders (10-2) scored two touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 14-0 lead into halftime. The first came on a wide receiver screen to Scott Young, who eluded a tackle and raced 72 yards for a 7-0 lead. Eight minutes later, Zeke Noa scored on a 4-yard run. The Broncos (11-1) pulled to within 14-3 on a Matt Araiza 38-yard field goal in the third quarter, but just under three minutes later Noa scored on a 46-yard burst for Helix to make it 21-3. Grice cut the deficit to 21-10 with a 1-yard run with 10 seconds left in the third quarter, but that was as close as Rancho Bernardo would get. McCoy was proud of his team’s effort. “You put our kids on paper against (Helix) and you are going to pick them 9,000 times out of 9,000 times,” he said. “We don’t always matchup well on paper; in fact, that is how it is with a lot of the teams we play. But that is why this group of kids is amazing. That stuff doesn’t matter to them. They still go out there and play hard and play together.” They certainly did that — for one last time — on Friday night. SEE FOOTBALL, B4

RB High’s field continues to get championship upgrades BY TERRY MONAHAN For the first few years after Rancho Bernardo opened in 1990, the Broncos baseball team played home games off campus at the Rancho Bernardo Glassman Recreation Center just off Interstate 15. The portion of the campus where the baseball field sits today was used for parking construction equipment among other things. Once the team finally moved onto campus, there has been nothing but success. Coach Sam Blalock has built the Broncos into the premier baseball program as the seven San Diego Section championships - the first Broncos title came in 1999 - attest. In the more than 20 years, the baseball team has played on campus, few improvements were made. There has been plenty of changes over the last 12 months, though. And thanks to Sharon and Shawn O’Brien more things are on the drawing board. The O’Briens have spearheaded a drive to modernize the baseball field that is currently under way. A new $20,000 scoreboard has already been installed. So has a padded safety rail and netting in front of both dugouts to protect players and coaches. “We’ve taken quite a few hits over the years,’’ said Blalock, whose teams at Rancho Bernardo have been runners-up in the playoffs three times. “Include me in that group too. I got hit once. “We had one player get two concussions by

No longer will they have to sit for hours on the concrete seating area. A total of 150 new plastic seats have been installed at a cost of $20,000. Also, the concrete was repaired, painted blue and stained to ward off the effects of the sun, wind and rain. “People think a baseball field is a backstop, a mound and some bases,’’ said Blalock, a four-time CIF champion at Mt. Carmel before accepting the job as the first coach at Rancho Bernardo. “There you go, there’s your baseball field. “Originally, our dugouts had no roofs. “It’s really nice for the kids to play in an upgraded facility like this.’’ When Connor O’Brien arrived as a freshman baseball player at Rancho Bernardo in 2014-15, his parents noticed the need for some upgrades. Since they had already been the driving force behind improvements with the Rancho Penasquitos Little League, they got right to work. Instead of searching for corporate donations or waiting for the Poway Unifief School District to kick in money, the O’Briens, whose freshman son, Dylan, is an outfielder at Rancho Bernardo, began soliciting grants from the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. In all, five grants were submitted by Sharon and received for the renovations. SEE BASEBALL, B4

Adelman wrapped up his prep career with 229 yards and two touchdowns rushing and four catches for 93 yards and a TD receiving.

Back in seventh grade, she used to watch Jonah play at Rancho Bernardo. “I used to play tennis and soccer, but I didn’t enjoy them much,’’ she said. “I thought I’d enjoy a sport where I could use my hands. “When I started playing volleyball, I loved practice. I went to extra practices whenever I could, sometimes two or three per day.’’ Kay is so consumed with volleyball that she spends her free time peppering in the street in front of her house or at the beach.

A culinary voyage exploring seafood sustainability

T

he jaw dropping Marine Room of La Jolla recently hosted its second annual Ocean-to-Table luncheon, a pescavore’s paradise as part of the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival. The Captain of the gustatory expedition, Chef Bernard Guillas with first mate Chef Ron Oliver conceived the idea to launch a fresh format of the event to celebrate our mighty oceans with a stimulating educational component, while its previous mission was focused solely on discovering new wines and relishing food flavors. He invited a crew of sustainably-minded chefs, both local and global, to come aboard and share their passion and knowledge of oceanic stewardship. Iconic chefs and discerning foodies rubbed elbows during the sold-out reception. Guests nibbled on whimsical seafood appetizers with locally-sourced ingredients, including a crunchy brandade croquette topped with miniature pickled vegetables (Amy DiBiase, Grand Restaurant Group), succulent San Diego sea urchin accompanied by marine gems, such as red ogo seaweed, jako anchovies, and masago roe (Andrew Spurgin, Bespoke Event Styling and Menu Design), and local spiny lobster presented on a bincho black charcoal crisp with a hint of ginger blossom (Evan Cruz, Arterra). Diners were then treated to a five-course, sit-down feast of local sea treasures and some decadent desserts, along with an enlightening commentary by the chefs as they introduced their dishes. Visiting chef from Las Vegas, Rick Moonen of RM Seafood, an intrepid trailblazer of sustainable seafood restaurants for over 13 years, cast out practical advice for consumers when buying seafood to simply ask their fishmonger three questions: 1) What is it? 2) Where is it from? 3) How was it procured (either caught or farmed)? According to Moonen the answers will give the consumer, and the fish seller, a true understanding of food, its nutritional and health profile, and an awareness of its precarious existence. “It’s hard to identify ‘sustainability,’ ” Moonen said. “But basically, it’s not to take an active role in the extinction of the species, like the over exploited and endangered Bluefin Tuna, Chilean Sea Bass, North Atlantic Cod, and Atlantic Halibut. In part, it’s our love of big fish that has caused over 80 percent of certain species to be overfished.” Moonen recommends eating lower on the food chain, embracing safer (in terms of less methyl mercury and PCB concentrations) and smaller fish, especially anchovies, sardines and mackerel, also packed with heart-healthy omega-3’s. Moonen also suggests downloading the Seafood Watch Program App sponsored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium to keep current on the sustainability of various fish and seafood species.

ENTERTAINMENT

Welk’s ‘Plaid Tidings’ is enjoyable holiday fare Shows can be seen in Escondido through Dec. 31 BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK A humorous, non-traditional holiday show that is more concert or musical revue than stage musical can be seen at the Welk Resort Theatre in Escondido through New Year’s Eve. “Plaid Tidings” is the holiday edition of “Forever Plaid.” In the latter and original version, which debuted in 1989, four guys in a vocal group return to Earth to put on the concert they did not get to perform in 1964 because they died on the way to the concert venue when their car and a bus collided. In the holiday version, which debuted in 2001, the guys return again, this time to put on the holiday show they dreamed of doing someday. The show is appropriate for youths and adults. Despite its semi-dark premise — knowing Sparky (JD Dumas), Smudge (Chaz Feuerstine), Jinx (Luke H. Jacobs) and Frankie (Bryan Banville) are in essence, ghosts — the show is actually light-hearted, with just touches of melancholy, especially at the end when the guys know their long-awaited holiday show must end and

KEN JACQUES

A Christmas version of the song “Matilda” closes the first act of “Plaid Tidings,” playing at the Welk Resort through Dec. 31. they must return to heaven. In the course of about two hours, the guys sing more than 30 likely familiar tunes. They are a mix of holiday tunes plus

‘50s and ‘60s era songs, some of which get rewritten lyrics to reflect the season. For example, they close Act I with “Matilda” — a song included in the original show — but

this time change the line “she take me money and run Venezuela” to “she take me money and go Christmas shopping.” The choreography for this and several other tunes add to the light-hearted humor, with the guys willing to act silly when required. The light-hearted sections, a vast majority of the show, are a well-done counterpoint to the more somber moments, such as when Feuerstine sings the wishful “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” as he talks to the audience about their dreams and what could have been. Director and choreographer David Humphrey, whose credits include many “Forever Plaid” and “Plaid Tidings” productions, does a good job in staging the show. It has the right mix of dancing, physical comedy and use of props to be highly entertaining. Among the more memorable numbers are the comedic takes on “Kiss of Fire” and “Let It Snow,” plus numbers like “Bésame Mucho,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” the Perry Como-inspired “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.” Each of the guys gets his turn to shine — they all have lovely singing voices — and Dumas gets to show off his piano skills when pianist/conductor Justin Gray “takes a SEE REVIEW, B9

‘Miracle on 34th Street’ live radio play opens tonight

FROM REVIEW, B8 break.” Also accompanying the group is bass player Martin Martiarena. Both musicians are on stage instead of being confined to the orchestra pit. Video and still photos are also successfully incorporated into the staging. It is used to set up the premise, to “bring back” Rosemary Clooney — who helps the guys realize they need to sing holiday music during this return trip — and have them “live out” their dream of performing in one of Como’s holiday shows. The audience will also not want to head out to the lobby as soon as intermission begins because those who stay in the theater for a few extra minutes are rewarded with some ‘60s era holiday gift commercials that are funny in their seriousness and provide an interesting look — especially for younger audience members — at views of societal roles back then. “Plaid Tidings” can be seen at 1 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays plus 8 p.m. Thursdays and Saturdays through Dec. 31 at the Welk Resort, 8860 Lawrence Welk Drive in Escondido. There will be shows on Christmas Eve (1 p.m.) and New Year’s Eve (8 p.m.). Tickets are $57, with youth pricing for ages 4-13. Get 15 percent off using the promo code POM-15 if attending by Dec. 15.

BY EMILY SORENSEN San Diego Musical Theatre is bringing radio to life with its live radio play of “Miracle on 34th Street,” opening tonight (Thursday) at the Horton Grand Theatre. Adapted from the Lux Radio Hour Broadcast by Lance Arthur Smith, with original music by Jon Lorenz, this classic tale will be told in the tradition of 1940s radio. “Miracle on 34th Street,” originally a 1947 film starring Maureen O’Hara and John Payne, is a Christmas comedy-drama based on a story by Valentine Davies. It focuses on the impact of a department store Santa Claus who claims to be the real Santa has on a cynical young girl and her divorcee mother. There have since been four film remakes, several television adaptions and a Broadway musical of the Christmas classic, as well as the Lux Radio Hour Broadcast in 1947 and 1948 and a half-hour radio play on two broadcasts of “Screen Director’s Playhouse.” The show features seven performers, with four of them voicing dozens of characters. This will be the inaugural production for the San Diego Musical Theatre at the Horton Grand Theatre, as well as Executive Director Colleen Kollar Smith’s directing debut. “At the Horton Grand, we wanted to create a new holiday tradition for our audiences by taking something familiar and putting a little twist on it. With ‘Miracle on 34th Street,’ we are adapting the radio broadcast of the classic Academy Award-winning film, adding original music and fresh arrangements of favorite holiday tunes, and creating an experience where our patrons will feel like they are a key-player as the live-studio audience,” Kollar

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. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale: If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (858) 565-4466 or visit this Internet Web site www.scmssd.com using the file number assigned to this case 16-2828 Nagy. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. 11/10/16 SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA MORTGAGE SERVICE 11839 Sorrento Valley Road Suite 903 SAN DIEGO, CA 92121 (858) 565-4466 Paul Rios, Vice President (858) 565-4466 Phone (858) 565-2137 Fax 1stsecuritymortgage@gmail.com A-4599161 11/24/2016, 12/01/2016, 12/08/2016.

Casa Aldea will provide upscale senior living Early 2017 opening planned in Santaluz BY CHRIS SAUR Area seniors looking for an assisted living and memory care facility that mixes upscale and vibrant, with the latest technology and a smaller, family-style feel won’t have to search any longer. Casa Aldea Senior Living, which embodies all of those qualities and more, is expected to open in early 2017 next to the Santaluz community and golf course. Owned by Aldea Partners, a group that also owns a facility in University City for seniors who need a little less care, the new facility will be managed by Integral Senior Living (ISL), which is headquartered in Carlsbad and managing around 60 facilities in more than 10 states. Casa Aldea will offer 47 assisted living apartments and 17 apartments in the secured memory care area. All residents have access to 24-hour onsite nursing in addition to a large care staff. Incoming residents, who start at age 60 in most cases, can be independent — and some care is included in the base pricing — but the idea for Casa Aldea is that they can offer more care as needed (including hospice) so seniors don’t need to move to a new place if their situation changes. “They can truly age in place,” said Executive Director Tiffany Yin. “In terms of the amenities and the staff, we are going to have a very high expectation of customer service. We plan to give our residents an experience unlike any other.” Those amenities — which are in addition to the beautiful atmosphere provided by the two-story building with architecture influenced by Mediterranean and California styles — include a full-time concierge; 24-hour receptionist; gym; clubhouse with pool table; large theater for live performances or movies; full salon and spa; simple but upscale apartments (think granite counter tops and high-end bathrooms) and a large garden area. The garden area is beautifully landscaped with walking paths, a gazebo, raised planters for resident gardening and even bocce ball and a putting green. And then there is the food. Casa Aldea will offer ISL’s award-winning Dining by Design program, with anytime dining at both a restaurant and a more casual bistro/bar area, as well as outdoor dining and a private dining area available for parties. Additionally, there will be an extensive 24-hour room service program. The food will be courtesy of Chef Rene Cota, who has 30 years of experience providing fine dining at senior facilities. “He is amazing,” Yin said. “(Other facilities) were very sad that we got him.” Built with the environment in mind, Casa Aldea will utilize solar power and has an energy-star certification to guarantee

Casa Aldea will be opening early next year in Santaluz. the lowest carbon footprint currently possible. It is also being built with technology in mind. Not only will it use the most up-to-date current technology, but it has been set up to easily advance with the times. Seniors and their families can reserve apartments now, and those that pre-lease will become members of the Casa Aldea charter club, which will come with bonuses such as financial concessions, welcome gifts and invitations to special events. But even non-charter members will feel like they are part of a family with only 64 total residents. “It will appeal to residents that want the resort-style feel and the customer service and the food and all of that, but they don’t want so much space,” Yin said. “We are more of a boutique-style community with all of the high-end feel.” For more information, visit casaaldeaseniorliving.com.

North County business chamber gets 5-star accreditation BY PHILLIP MOLNAR An organization that represents more than 800 businesses in North San Diego County has received a 5-star accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Getting the 5-star distinction for the first time, the North San Diego Business Chamber joins 1.5 percent of the nation’s 7,022 chambers that have the ranking. The award recognizes groups for excellent planning and contributions to positive change in their communities,

said the national chamber’s website. “Our team and Board of Directors have worked hard for this, making sure all of our programs and practices are relevant for the business community and the members we represent,” said Debra Rosen, CEO of the North San Diego Business Chamber. There are 10 accredited chambers in California. Those also with 5-star rankings are in Palm Desert, the Greater Conejo Valley, Roseville, San Clemente and Simi Valley. The San Diego Regional Chamber of

Commerce has a 3-star ranking. Rosen said it took nine months to complete the accreditation application. She said the U.S. Chamber wanted to see its finances, best practices, back-up computer systems, employee handbooks, diversity of its board, membership retention and more. The U.S. Chamber says it is the world’s largest business federation, representing the interest of more than 3 million businesses. Molnar is a writer with The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Alarming survey shows poor home maintenance habits (StatePoint) Proper home maintenance can preserve your home, while saving you money and headaches in the future. However, a new survey from Erie Insurance conducted by Harris Poll reveals Americans have alarmingly poor upkeep habits. “By overlooking common DIY projects, homeowners are not only putting themselves at risk for major financial loss, but also are exposing their families to dangerous hazards,” says Joe Vahey, vice president and product manager at Erie Insurance. In an effort to help people become more aware of what they can be doing to protect themselves, the experts at Erie Insurance list five commonly overlooked areas of the home that should be regularly inspected and maintained:

Inspect your roof

Replacing or repairing a roof is one of the biggest expenses a homeowner may have and the need to do it often comes without warning. Nationally, the average homeowner spends about $6,600 to install a new roof, according to HomeAdvisor, but prices can soar upwards of $20,000 depending on certain factors. But the Erie Insurance survey found that nearly one in four homeowners (23 percent) admits they never inspect their roof or have it inspected only if there is a problem. Even scarier, nearly a third (27 percent) of those who own a house either mistakenly believe their insurance will pay for damage that occurs to their roof over time, such as through normal wear and tear or have no idea how their insurance works regarding this type of damage. Insurance generally only covers things like roof

damage from unexpected storms.

Unclog gutters and downspouts Nearly one out of four homeowners (24 percent) say they never care for their gutters and downspouts. Clogged gutters can cause water to flow down the sides of a home and pool around its foundation, often leading to major issues like uneven floors, cracks in walls and interior water damage. This type of claim, also known as seepage, is often not covered under your home insurance policy.

Clean out dryer exhaust

One in five homeowners (21 percent) admit they never clean their clothes dryer ducts, unless they have a problem. Unfortunately, the most common cause of dryer fires is failure to do a thorough cleaning. According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), dryers cause roughly 15,500 home structure fires, 29 deaths, 400 injuries and $192 million in direct property loss each year.

Check the furnace

Only 36 percent of homeowners have their furnaces inspected and serviced at least once a year. According to NFPA, U.S. fire departments respond to an estimated average of 56,000 home fires involving heating equipment. These fires resulted in annual losses of 470 civilian deaths, 1,490 civilian injuries, and $1 billion in direct property damage per year. Protect your family and your investment with proper maintenance, and if you’re unsure what your policy covers, contact your insurance agent. They’ll work with you to determine what you need to be protected.

Where’s the dim sum from Pearl?” asks Poway’s Martin Sheps. Okay, this isn’t a food column. Still, the question’s fair since there are no more dim sum carts at Rancho Bernardo’s Pearl Restaurant. Dim sum’s a cool experience. Carts of food are pushed around the dining room so patrons see delicacies they’ll actually eat. You point to a plate and it’s put before you. Since you don’t have to wait for food to arrive, you typically over-order. It’s made Pearl different from most neighborhood restaurants and has lured in Mr. Sheps and his friends. Of course the food’s still there, still tasty and still plentiful. Only now you order plates of dim sum from a waiter. From a marketing perspective this is probably unwise. Customer involvement’s been minimized and with it much of the fun. Perhaps the carts were too troublesome or the process expensive. Regardless of the reason, like Elvis, dim sum has left the building. Like every business, Pearl must balance revenues and costs. But here’s a harsh truth: customers don’t care. Mr. Sheps, in search of a fine dining experience, has determined Pearl’s gone from being a culinary adventure to just another lunchtime option.

Pearl’s owners must now work to convince him to return for more than just the dim sum. They may be forced to use coupons or radio advertising to rebuild traffic they just gave away. Now let’s look at your business. Are you asking customers if you should discontinue services or products? Are you even talking to your customers to see what they think of you? If either answer is “No,” you’re making a mistake. Here’s another truism: unhappy customers will use YELP, Facebook and other social media to complain about you long before they say something to you directly. And your lost revenues can easily dwarf your cost savings. So before canceling a service, examine if you’re offering something different from the competition. Eliminating it without customer input may hurt your profitability. And asking patrons for guidance may not only increase sales, but ensure long-term customer loyalty. Finally, a suggestion for Mr. Sheps and his friends to explore Emerald on Convoy Street. Same owners and they serve dim sum all day long. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing.
