Big crowds expected for Christmas in the Park BY EMILY SORENSEN Old Poway Park’s free traditional holiday celebration of Christmas in the Park returns 3:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14. This event has everything from Christmas carols to a visit from the big man in red himself, Santa. This year, getting to and from the event will be even easier with free shuttles provided by the city. Rather than fighting for parking, take one of the two shuttles to and from the park for a painless visit to the park. The first shuttle will be at the Park and Ride lot at Community Road and Twin Peaks roads, and the second will be at Poway Adult School, 13626
Santa and Mrs. Claus welcomed visitors to last year’s Christmas in the Park. The event returns Saturday afternoon and evening. Twin Peaks Road. Shuttles will begin running at 3 p.m. and will do their final run from the park at 9 p.m. Once you’re at Christmas in the Park, there’s a wide variety of fun holiday events to
see and do. From 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. horse-drawn hayrides will be going down Midland Road. In the park itself, you can visit a petting zoo, have your face painted, make an ornament
to hang on the community Christmas tree, ride the train for a nominal fee, see a model train display and much more. Live musical and dancing enter tainment will be going on in the gazebo and in Templars Hall throughout the event. Performing throughout the day in the gazebo beginning at 3:30 p.m. are various groups from San Diego Folk Heritage, Black Mountain Middle School, Kids Sing, Tierra Bonita Elementar y, the Christmas Belles, Full Measure Carolers and Poway High School. Performing throughout the day in Templars Hall, starting at 3:30 p.m., are the New West Ballet, Dance to Evolve, San Diego Folk Heritage, the Heritage Dancers and the North
County Wind Ensemble. The museum and the Nelson House will be open for the event, with a piano player in the museum to sing along with, and old-fashioned games available for playing in the Nelson House, as well as a station to write letters to Santa alongside the Nelson House porch. Both locations are fully decorated for Christmas, with the museum displaying three examples of Christmas throughout the years, turn-ofthe-century, 1950s and modern, complete with decorated trees and examples of presents. The community Christmas tree will be lit at 5:15 p.m., and at 5:30 p.m., Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive on the 1907 SEE PARK, Page A26
Stricken PHS grad returning to create memory for his son BY EMILY SORENSEN Poway High School grad is returning to his alma mater to help make memories for his son. Dan Boyle, a 1986 PHS graduate, will be conducting the school’s traditional performance of “Russian Christmas Music” at the Poway High School Winter Band Concert, 7 BOYLE 9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19 in the Poway High School
gymnasium. Boyle was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease in 2009. Now he’s working on making a record of his life for his 5-year-old son, Colby. “I want my son to have a written and visual record of my whole life,” said Boyle. “I have a lot of videos of me performing on the trumpet, but not many of me conducting.” Huntington’s disease is a genetic disorder that affects muscle coordination and leads to cognitive decline and psychiatric problems, including behavioral

problems and dementia. “My mom, aunt and grandmother all died of it, and my son has a 50% chance of inheriting it,” said Boyle in a letter to Poway High School band director Mike Cook. The average age of diagnosis is 40, and life expectancy after diagnosis is roughly 10 to 20 years. “My mom died at 56,” said Boyle, who was 41 when he was diagnosed. There is no cure for Huntington’s disease. Boyle, who now lives in Bakersfield with his wife, Audrey, and their son, played trumpet in the jazz, concert and
marching bands during his four years at Poway High School, and went on to play trumpet at UCLA as well, before becoming a music teacher. He was the band director at Highland High School in Bakersfield for 12 years. “Music was always one of my favorite things through school,” said Boyle, “and I always wanted to be a music teacher.” After hearing about how Poway High School was looking for alumni to return and perform in the winter band

If looking for inspiration on how to decorate a small gingerbread house, the Rancho Bernardo Inn has a life-size version that might spark some sweet ideas. The 9-foot high, 12-foot wide house can be viewed for free in the RB Inn’s lobby, 17550 Bernardo Oaks Drive. It will remain on display through the New Year. Pastry Chef Margaret Carvallo has led the four-member team for the past four of the five years the inn has had the house as part of its annual holiday decorations. When she joined its staff, Carvallo said the house was one of the first things she was told about. “I had never made a lifesize gingerbread house before,” Carvallo said of her 12 years in the baking industry. The lifelong county resident graduated from the California Culinary Academy. “I really like that it brings the team together,” she said. “It really does feel like Christmas.” The team started making the 2,200 gingerbread bricks
and roof tiles in late August so there is time for them to dry after baking since initially they are really moist, Carvallo said. They are baked on sheets and cut into similar sizes. Three roof tiles or several bricks can be made per sheet. “Whenever we get quiet days we work on the house,” she said. All the gingerbread must be baked by the end of October since starting in November the team has to focus on its other holiday-related tasks plus keep up with the inn’s daily baking needs. While the bakers are busy making bricks and tiles, Carvallo said the inn’s engineer-
ing department creates the wood structure. Without it, the house would collapse. Each year the house is made a bit different, so the carpenter works with Car vallo on incorporating various design aspects. For example, this year there is a quatrefoil shaped window above the door. The quatrefoil design is seen throughout the resort’s buildings and has been included in two of its gingerbread houses. For the “glass” Carvallo said she makes it since the thin, somewhat clear panes are the most fragile component. It is made by liquefying sugar, SEE HOUSE, Page A25
Want to build one? Here's the recipe For those who might like to try making a life-size house next year, be ready for some heavy lifting while gathering the ingredients. This year’s version required 5,760 pounds of ingredients, which does not include the 50-plus pounds of candy, such as lollipops, gumballs, gumdrops and candy canes, that give the house its whimsical flair and fulfill childhood fantasies. To make the gingerbread bricks and roof tiles plus the royal frosting that
holds it all together it took: • 1 ton of powdered sugar, • 1,000 pounds of brown sugar, • 750 pounds of granulated sugar, • 750 pounds of cake ﬂour, • 750 pounds of bread ﬂour, • 282 pounds of molasses, • 24 pounds of baking soda, • 20 pounds of cinnamon, • 12 pounds of vanilla extract, • 4 pounds of ginger and • 2,160 eggs (that’s 180 dozen).

NEWS BRIEFS Canavan returns to Poway
BY STEVE DREYER
Encinitas Fire Chief Jon Canavan has resigned after two months on the job and returned this week to Poway as its fire marshal. Canavan said his change of heart was based on the large time and energy commitment needed to do the Encinitas job, coupled with unspecified personal issues. “Great people, great staff and a great community,” he said of Encinitas. “They needed a fire chief to spend lots of time and energy on real focused issues.” The department has six stations. The chief also provides operational oversight for emergency services in the cities of Del Mar and Solana Beach. Canavan joined the Poway department in 2003 as a fire division chief after spending 13 years with the San Marcos department. He lives in Poway with his wife and two sons.
The City of Poway is now on Facebook and Twitter. Entr y in both social media fields occurred on Nov. 12, according to Belinda Romero, the city’s manager of community services.

Ten city employees from several city depar tments have been trained to post on the sites, Romero said. The Facebook and Twitter sites cost nothing and take up minimal staff time, she said.

New PUSD survey seeks communications comments BY EMILY SORENSEN The Poway Unified School District wants to hear your opinions through an online survey open to PUSD parents and members of the community through Friday, Dec. 20. Designed and administered by independent technology and communications firm K12 Insight, the survey covers topics such as satisfaction with district- and school-level communications, preferences for receiving information, the importance of various types of information and the frequency with which you would like to receive information. The survey is part of the district’s ongoing goal to develop a communication framework that can be implemented at both the school and district level. The survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete, and the answers will be anonymous and confidential. “While it’s important that we continue providing the community with ongoing in-
formation about schools, programs and students, it’s equally impor tant that we hear from all of our stakeholders,” said Superintendent John Collins in a press release. “And we must have communication strategies in place that promote transparency, trust and collaborative decision-making with the entire community.” Parents who have provided the district with their email addresses will receive email invitations to participate. The survey will also be accessible to all parents and community members through a public link on the district’s website, www.powayusd.com. “Our goal is to provide every student with a challenging 21st centur y education experience,” said Collins. “Our success depends on developing and maintaining a two-way dialogue that fosters collective engagement among all stakeholders. By working together, we can create a learning culture that supports professional development and student achievement.”
HOLIDAY LIGHTS - Neighbors on Stoutwood Street in Poway, including Dilip and Indy Godhia, have dressed up their homes for the holiday season and invite everyone to come by each night between 5:30 and 10:30 p.m. The musical group The Saxations will perform for an hour at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Do you or your neighbors have an amazing outdoor holiday display? Send a highresolution photo and location details to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Senior complex proposed on 'water tower' site BY EMILY SORENSEN AmeriCare Health and Retirement, Inc., the high bidder on the water tower site, said it intends to build a senior living community on the site, if negotiations with the Poway Unified School District go through. “We’re focused on working through negotiations [with the district], and closing by the school board’s deadline of the end of the year,” said Matt Petree, director of property development for AmeriCare. AmeriCare was the highest out of three parties vying for the water tower site, located at 16061 Avenida Venusto in Rancho Bernardo. “We’re very happy to be selected to be the top bidder,” said Petree. Petree said that if the negotiations are successful, AmeriCare plans on building one of its Silvergate senior communi-
ties on the property. The company has three other Silvergate communities, one in Fallbrook and two in San Marcos. AmeriCare is a privately held health care management company that owns, operates and invests in assisted living communities and medical office buildings, focusing on the Southern California area. In addition to their Silvergate communities, the company also has a medical office building in Encinitas. “We’re well aware of the community interest in the site,” said Petree. “After the New Year, we plan to introduce ourselves to the community. We’re very open to a high level of collaboration with the community. We’re well aware that [the senior community] is a resource to the community.” Many Rancho Bernardo residents were hoping the City of San Diego would purchase the property and turn it into a park, but their desires were thwarted when the city was unable to come up with the required good faith deposit of $660,000 by the time of the public bidding deadline of Nov. 8.

Police celebrate with special needs students BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK For the 10th year a few San Diego police officers have helped make Rancho Bernardo High School’s critical skills class’ holiday party extra special. Lt. Bernie Colon, retired Sgt. Bob Cruz, Sgt. Richard Metz and Lt. Sharon Smyth donated gift cards so Santa Claus could give a gift to the 20 students who have a variety of special needs. They also made possible a visit by Santa and his helper. Colon said he started the effort and recruited the others because his mother, Jan Colon, is a teacher’s assistant in the class and she started the holiday party so the students could have something special at this time of year. Around 100 came to the Dec. 6 lunchtime party. Attendees included Principal Dave LeMaster and other faculty and staff members who interact with the students throughout the campus, plus parents and fellow students who assist in the critical skills classroom. The students gave a performance of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas” and lunch was provided by Souplantation, Vons and Papa John’s in Rancho Bernardo, Walmart in Poway and O’s American Kitchen in Carmel Mountain Ranch. “This year was absolutely awesome,” said Jan Colon when talking about all the donors who made the party possible. Lt. Colon said for years he, Cruz and
San Diego Police Sgt. Richard Metz and sophomore Toby Roosevelt chat during the party. Smyth bought gifts based on the students’ wish lists, but this year opted for gift cards. “To see their excitement ... is heartwarming,” he said. “This is an opportunity to give back.” “After the first time, seeing the kids so excited made it all worth it,” Cruz said. Smyth said seeing the students’ reac-
tion has kept her coming back. “The kids truly believe it’s Santa and Santa’s helper,” she said. Metz, a newcomer to this year’s party who also joined in the gift-giving, said he came in uniform in order to give the students a positive interaction with a police officer. “A lot of times they see us in an official capacity, which is unfortunate,” he said. “(This) breaks down the barrier and they see our humanistic side.” Lt. Colon said activities like the holiday party and a prom just for this class and their Best Buddies friends are important because “a lot of time the special needs students are forgotten about. But here they are in the spotlight, in the center of attention and we honor them.” “The food was great, my friends are awesome and everyone’s great,” said junior Derrick Oakes, who added that he hopes everyone including the less fortunate get something for the holidays that makes them happy. Sophomore Toby Roosevelt said his favorite part of the event was getting to throw “snow” during the skit. “It was very good,” said sophomore Stanfield Burton. “I liked saying ‘‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,’ there was great food and liked seeing Santa.” Sophomore Pamela Jones expressed similar comments and called performing in the skit “fantastic.”

All three are now married. Linda was a wonderful and loving grandmother to her eight grandchildren. Gary retired in 2003 and the couple has spent their retirement years traveling to destinations worldwide. Linda and Gary celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary with their family in June.

liked by everyone that a longtime neighbor once remarked that he never heard anyone say anything negative about her.

You’ve been a wonderful wife, sister, mother, grandmother and friend! We will all miss you very much! A private memorial service for family has been arranged.

Joseph Anthony Bridgman 1950 – 2013
Joe, 63, died at home in Poway with his family around him on November 28, 2013, after a short battle with cancer. He was peaceful, and not in pain
when he passed. Joe was born August 3, 1950, in Columbus, Ohio, to John and Mary Bridgman and was the first of three children. John, Mary and Joe moved to California in the mid 50’s and bought their first home in Poway in 1958, where the family was raised and remains to this day.

He is survived by his sister, Tina (Bridgman) Martedi of Vista, CA; brothers, Scott Bridgman of Poway and John Bridgman of Columbus, Ohio.

He was highly respected for his knowledge and ability to design systems for projects such as the San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant, the San Diego Convention Center and many hospital and college campuses. Joe’s true love was for the track. Horses! He was a member of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, an avid handicapper, and loved to share his knowledge with others about “the ponies”. He made several trips to Churchill Downs for the Kentucky Derby. Joe also loved the coast, as he made it his home for the past 30 years. Whether it was simply lying in the sun, walking on the beach
Alhiser-Comer Mortuary FD# 297 225 S. Broadway Escondido (760) 745-2162 alhiser-comer.com
or just watching the sunset, the beach is where you could always find him. Joe also was an avid Padre’s, Laker and Charger fan and he could swing a mean golf club as well. Joe had an easy going disposition, he was quiet, reserved and always had a smile on his face. He was slow to anger and you could tell him anything, as he always had an ear to listen.

SCOUT EXPLORES CAREER — Rancho Bernardo Cadette Girl Scout Rachelle Childers of Troop 8175, holding a brittle star, recently participated in the “You Can Be ... a Marine Biologist” one-day career exploration event. The program attended by 40 sixth- to 12th-grade Girl Scouts was at SEACAMP San Diego in Mission Bay. The girls, who are interested in marine biology and other oceanography careers, learned about 31 species of native fish and invertebrates, and touched live sea stars and sharks. Donning snorkels, they explored Mission Point and encountered purple sea urchins, giant limpets and a California sea hare. The event was part of Girl Scouts San Diego’s “You Can Be ...” series, designed to introduce girls to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) professions.

Here’s what you should know, along with some tips to help you protect yourself. Heart attack season In the U.S., the risk of having a heart attack during the winter months is twice as high as it is during the summertime. Why? There are a number of factors, and they’re not all linked to cold weather. Even people who live in warm climates have an increased risk. Here are the areas you need to pay extra attention to this winter. Cold temperatures: When a person gets cold, the body responds by constricting the blood vessels to help the body maintain heat. This causes blood pressure to go up and makes the heart work harder. Cold temperatures can also increase levels of certain proteins that can thicken the blood and increase the risk for blood clots. So stay warm this winter, and when you do have to go outside, make sure you bundle up
Jim Miller THE SAVVY SENIOR in layers with gloves and a hat, and place a scarf over your mouth and nose to warm up the air before you breathe it in. New Year’s resolutions: Every Jan. 1, millions of people join gyms or start exercise programs as part of their New Year’s resolution to get in shape, and many overexert themselves too soon. If you’re starting a new exercise program this winter, take the time to talk to your doctor about what types and how much exercise may be appropriate for you. Winter weight gain: People tend to eat and drink more, and gain more weight during the holiday season and winter months, all of which are hard on the heart and risky for someone with heart disease. So keep a watchful eye on your diet this winter and avoid binging on fatty foods and alcohol.
Shorter days: Less daylight in the winter months can cause many people to develop “seasonal affective disorder” or SAD, a wintertime depression that can stress the heart. Studies have also looked at heart attack patients and found they usually have lower levels of vitamin D (which comes from sunlight) than people with healthy hearts. To boost your vitamin D this winter, consider taking a supplement that contains between 1,000 and 2,000 international units (IU) per day. And to find treatments for SAD, visit the Center for Environmental Therapeutics website at cet.org. Flu season: Studies show that people who get flu shots have a lower heart attack risk. It’s known that the inflammatory reaction set off by a flu infection can increase blood clotting which can lead to heart attacks in vulnerable people. So, if you haven’t already done so, get a flu shot for protection. See flushot.healthmap.org to find a nearby vaccination site. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

You need to ask questions before hiring help
ow that you and your parents are past denial and can admit it’s time to hire a caregiver, you’ll want to ask the right questions in order to get the best help. The first step is finding the best full-service homecare agency or private caregiver for your folks. Although you might find private caregivers in the newspaper or online who initially appear to be less expensive than an agency, there are some downsides. The most obvious, as I wrote previously, are that private caregivers have not been vetted and could end up stealing from your parents and, worse, mistreating them. Private caregivers could also be unreliable, leaving you to scramble for a sub when they don’t show up. There are also several legal considerations that could cost you. If you opt to go with an agency, talk to a few before making your choice. Among the questions to ask:
Marsha Kay Seff THE CAREGIVERS’ JOURNEY • How long have you been in the business and are you a member of any professional associations? • Are your caregivers bonded and are criminal background checks performed? Do you examine driving history? • Are the caregivers you offer employed by your agency or do you subcontract? (Subcontractors might not be bonded or covered by liability insurance or workers compensation.) • What type of training, experience and certification do you require?
• What services do your caregivers provide and is the family included in the treatment plan? • Do you provide an initial home visit? • How much supervision do you provide your caregivers? • Do you have a minimum number of work hours? • What are your rates, including evenings and weekends? Is there a special rate for 24-hour care? • Will we get the same caregiver all the time? Do you automatically provide a sub when a caregiver is ill? If you opt for a private caregiver, here are some other questions: • Can you give me several personal and work-related references? • What kind of education, training and experience do you have? How do you handle people who are angry, stubborn or scared?
• Do you have a car to transport my parents? Can you transfer someone from a wheelchair to a car or bed? • What times are you available? What happens on your days off or when you’re ill? • How would you keep my family informed? • How much do you charge and are there any extra costs? • Will you sign a contract agreeing not to accept money or gifts from my parents? Remember, whether you hire an agency or an individual, you must stay involved in your parents’ care. It’s still up to you to make the important decisions.

Caltrans' SR-67 study prompts additional questions, concerns BY KAREN BRAINARD
SHARING THEIR HOLIDAY SPIRIT — For the third year, Country Club of Rancho Bernardo members and friends held a golf cart parade on the first Wednesday in December. The festive event started on Ranch House Road, went around the club and golf course, and concluded on Grandee Road in Rancho Bernardo. Above are the participants. At left, are Glenn and Ruth Ann Young. Below at the pre-parade party are, from left, Andrea Joly, Sally Hinchman, Ruth Ann Young, Jo Martin and Coy Herring. Photos by Sherri Cortez
There seem to be no easy answers when it comes to options to prevent collisions on state Route 67. That was the opinion of Caltrans’ officials and Ramona Community Planning Group members after a presentation of the state transportation agency’s Median Barrier Corridor Study for Route 67 on Dec. 5. Caltrans Project Manager Richard Estrada noted the presentation was information only and they will come back to the community when the draft environmental report is completed, most likely in spring 2014. Estrada said they are meeting with small community groups that include residents who live near Rockhouse Road and SR-67. “We’re doing as much outreach as we can because we want to hear what your thoughts are,” he said. Estrada reviewed the median barrier study that covers the 12-mile stretch of the highway from Willow Road in Lakeside to Shady Oaks Road in Ramona. Four options are proposed for the center of the highway to prevent head-on collisions: a concrete barrier, a metal barrier, a high tension cable barrier, and a median buffer. A fifth option is “no build.” A benefit to the cable barrier, Estrada said, is that drainage patterns would not have to be altered as they would with a concrete barrier. Cable would also offer some “give” if hit, he said. “We’ve installed a few in Northern California,” said Estrada, adding that they will use cable for a median project in San Diego County in the next six months. Planner Jim Cooper said he researched the cable barrier, which costs less and offers
more visibility. “The biggest detraction from cable is motorcycles. They hit that and it’s like hitting a knife edge,” he said. RCPG member Carl Hickman asked what Caltrans’ goal is with the study and proposed options. “Reduce the number and severity of all collisions in this footprint,” responded Estrada. Hickman, a licensed traffic engineer with the county, asked that Caltrans’ officials bring data on the number of collisions and where they are happening on the highway when they return in the spring. Estrada said SR-67 is a unique corridor because there are so many driveways and side streets off it. To add a concrete median barrier would prevent some of those homeowners from making a left turn unless there is a gore point in the barrier so they can cross through. Planner Dennis Sprong noted that would also make it difficult for emergency vehicles when responding to a call. In addition, he said other types of collisions could increase with a barrier. According to Estrada, because one lane would be removed for a barrier where there are three or four lanes, Caltrans is looking at a high friction surface that would help vehicles stop sooner if the pavement is wet and traffic backs up. In response to a question about adding an extra lane, Estrada said any of the build options would be paid for with SHOPP (State Highway Operation and Protection Program) funds that can only be used for safety projects and cannot be used to add capacity.

Haleh Travel can take you places S BY EMILY SORENSEN
Looking to get away? Haleh Travel can help you get wherever you want to go. Haleh Travel, located at 12234 Poway Road #206, has only been in its office space since September, but the business, run by Kamran and Haleh Hamasian, has been around much longer. The Hamasians have been running the business out of their home for five years before recently moving into their new office in order to expand the business. Haleh Travel covers cruises all over the world, flights, hotel reservations and travel insurance, to plan the perfect vacation for you and your family. Hamasian immigrated to the United States from Iran with his family in 2008. “We wanted a better life for our children,” said Hamasian. The family moved to Poway after hearing about the school system. “Everyone told us to come [to Poway], because of the schools,” he said. Their son attended San Diego State University and their daughter is a student at Twin Peaks Middle
Kamran Hamasian, owner of Haleh Travel in Poway. School. Haleh had been a travel agent for 15 years in Iran, so when Hamasian struggled to find work in the United States, it was a fairly simple task to return to the travel business, and the couple opened Haleh Travel. Hamasian runs the business, while Haleh helps out when her job at Qualcomm allows. At first, the Hamasians mostly sold tickets to the local Iranian community, but their desire to expand to handling cruises, hotel reservations and other travel reservations led them to move out
of their home business. “It wasn’t possible to do those things [from home],” said Hamasian. The business has been growing since it opened in September, he said. Hamasian said it was their commitment to provide the community with the best prices and service that made Haleh Travel stand out. “We have good prices, and the best service,” he said. “We offer a personal touch [to your travel planning] and personal assistance.” Though their most popular cruises are to Mexico, and Alaska in the summer, Hamasian said Haleh Travel can make arrangements for any cruise, in Europe or the Caribbean, as well as tour group arrangements, flight planning, hotel planning, travel insurance and much more. Haleh Travel offers weekly specials on trips through their website as well. Hamasian is also getting his notary public license, and Haleh Travel will soon be able to offer notary services. To contact Haleh Travel about making reservations, call 858444-6977 or visit www.halehtravel.com.
Extra hands in your pockets
ome time back I wrote about my marketing agency being named one of San Diego’s top grocery stores by a firm offering us a trophy, plaque and press release for $200. We passed up this tempting honor. I’ve since used receipt of aggressive marketing efforts to indicate the economy’s health. More energetic efforts generally suggest more money floating around. The last few years have naturally brought us the usual complement of Nigerian princes offering to share the booty if I help spirit away millions from their corrupt country. But lately this type activity has also increased elsewhere. Just this week I’ve noticed: • The Society, in which membership is pitched with a 10-page letter that, according to the LA Times, “reflect a hard-sell aggressiveness that makes uber-huckster Ron Popeil seem shy by comparison.” • Automatic Expert System sending a three-page email announcing the “Last chance to join us in the Automatic Expert System because we’re reopening our doors for today only!” • Three separate Philippine companies that want to buy whatever I sell (they never specify) and have me ship it to Manila. • The calls from the Fireﬁghters’ Benevolent Societies have increased. • The invention marketing industry is more actively hustling their “Let us patent it for you” scam. It can’t be a coincidence! Mom always tells me you have to take

the bad with the good. In the marketing world that means one questionable — or overly aggressive — marketer for every quality firm like Land’s End or Victoria’s Secret. And if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The aggressiveness, opportunism and general interest in separating you from your money is definitely on the rise. Some is scattershot, hoping to hit any target. Others specialize in specific audiences (seniors, small businesses, etc.). All share just one objective: your wallet. Please don’t misunderstand — not every aggressive marketer is a scam. Automatic Expert System’s letter easily falls into the same category as direct mail sent in the past by Hewlett-Packard and Reader’s Digest, but uses a different medium. But as the consumer, it’s your responsibility to determine if the offer is legitimate before you hand over your money. In Latin they say “caveat emptor”; “Let the buyer beware.” It’s never been more true than it is today. Seen a good one? Send it to scams@ askmrmarketing.com.

Law enforcement, public safety leaders talk death penalty reform BY EMILY SORENSEN A working group of several local law enforcement and public safety representatives met Thursday, Dec. 5 in Poway to discuss death penalty reform. The group, which included the president and vice president of the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of San Diego County, Assemblyman Brian Jones (R-Santee), and two family members of victims murdered by killers now on death row, discussed ways to reform California death penalty laws to ensure speedier executions and save tax payers millions. “We’re just exploring reform,” said Matt Clay, president of the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of San Diego County (DSASDC). “There are 43 killers of police officers on death row [in California],” said Clay. “There are 230 child victims, whose killers are on death row [in California].” Clay said that the group was meeting to discuss ideas on reforming the death penalty in California. “The death penalty, I believe, is broken in California,” said Clay. “I also believe it can certainly be fixed. There are real, tangible things that can fix the death penalty, and make things better for victims and their families.” The meeting was held in the association’s Poway office. Mark Peterson, of Californians for Death Penalty Reform and Savings, a coalition in Sacramento that attempted to get a bill reforming the death penalty into legislature in April, confirmed that the coalition was considering an initiative for death penalty reform, after their bill didn’t get out of the Public Safety Committee. The group grew out of opposition to the failed bill last year, which attempted to end the death penalty in California. “We agree that the death penalty is broken, but mend it, don’t end it,” said Peterson. “The voters proved they agreed with the death penalty. We owed it to the voters to try and fix it legislatively.” Many of the changes the coalition proposed legislatively in April were discussed by the group on Thursday. One of the options the representatives discussed is pursuing a
From left, Kermit Alexander, DSASDC vice president Steve Purvis, DSASDC president Matt Clay, 71st district Assemblyman Brian Jones, Phyllis Loya and Deputy District Attorney Brenda Daly were all part of the discussion group on death penalty reform that met at the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association of San Diego County office in Poway. Photo by Emily Sorensen change in death penalty law that would allow death row inmates’ appeals to be heard in the California appellate court system. Currently, all death penalty appeals have to be heard at the state Supreme Court level, which has resulted in years of backlogged cases, said Clay. Allowing appeals to be heard in appellate court would spread the cases between 30 and 40 courts in the state, significantly speeding up the process, and saving millions in tax payer money. It would also bring justice to families of victims in California more quickly, said Clay. Members of two of those families were there to share their stories and their struggles with the legal system. Phyllis Loya, of Pittsburg in Northern California, lost her son Larry, a police officer, to a shooting in 2005. “I want justice
10 % 15
for my son’s murder,” said Loya. Though one of her son’s killers, Alexander Hamilton, was sentenced to death in November of 2007, he has yet to file his first appeal, thanks to nine extensions granted to him. Hamilton wasn’t even appointed appellate counsel, the lawyer who will assist him with his appeals, until May of 2011. “Families should not have to wait decades for justice,” said Loya. Loya, who is a member of Californians for Death Penalty Reform and Savings, also said she wanted the state to make death row inmates work, and if they refuse to work, then take away their privileges. “We need changes to make it fair for everyone,” said Loya. “We are all waiting for justice, and our wait has been long and agonizing. All we’re asking is for [death penalty] sentences to be carried out.” Kermit Alexander, who had four family members, including his mother and sister, murdered in 1984, echoed her sentiments. Alexander, a former NFL player who played for the San Francisco 49ers, the Los Angeles Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles, said he’s been waiting for justice for over 20 years. His family’s killer, who mistakenly killed Alexander’s family after being hired to murder a different family who lived two houses away, has exhausted all his appeals, Alexander said. Yet because of the backlog of executions in California, his family’s killer remains on death row. “I’m saddened that the system doesn’t work,” said Alexander. “[He was sentenced] over 20 years ago, and it still isn’t over.” Assemblyman Brian Jones, of the 71st District, was also there to offer his support to the discussion of death penalty reforms, including a discussion on switching from the current three-drug execution method to a single-drug execution, a discussion which has been prompted by the shortage of the currently used drugs and legal issues. “Why do we even have a debate on whether three needles is more humane than one needle, when we can’t discuss [the inmate’s] crimes?” said Jones. “That whole debate on whether it’s more humane is offensive, it’s very irritating to me.” Jones said he’d support a switch to using a single-drug execution if it meant speeding up executions for death row inmates.

Working together to improve the library THUMBS UP to the combined ef for ts of the County of San Diego, the City of Poway and the Friends of the Poway Library to come up with a plan to finance a renovation of the 15-year-old Poway Librar y. The $1.5 million project should be completed by next fall and will include new carpeting, furniture and computers along with a teen area, more study rooms and a patio cover. THUMBS DOWN to the Rancho Bernardo Planning Board for still not getting its act together. After a change in leadership last April it appeared the board might finally put its years of ongoing strife behind, quit the petty squabbling and have meetings run in a timeefficient manner. As the Nov. 21 meeting showed, the internal problems have yet to go away. Residents waited more than an hour to express concerns over raised speed limits on Pomerado Road because the board took almost 20 minutes to modify and adopt its agenda. The holdup: whether a parliamentarian should be added to advise the board on following rules. Another issue, whether members need decorum guidelines for written or verbal communications on non-agenda items and subjects. Additional delays were due to disagreement over approving minutes dating back to August and the announcement that the Oct. 17 meeting was not official due to a Brown Act violation over agenda posting. The meeting ended three hours later, not because all agenda items were addressed, but the meeting venue was closing. Four of the 13 members present left early due to the late hour. THUMBS UP to all who have volunteered with or donated to the Backyard Produce Project. In early November it crossed the 100,000-pound — 50-ton — mark for locally grown fruits and vegetables given to area families in need. The produce comes from two sources: local yards whose owners donate their excess crops each month by bringing the food to a collection site or having a picking team harvest the crops,
and the volunteer-tended garden at Sunshine Care in Poway. THUMBS UP to the Vaineharrison family of Poway for donating their time (over 100 hours) and talent to create a searchable database allowing for the easy location of any of the more than 900 memorial tiles at the Poway Veterans Park. Visit www.poway.org for details. THUMBS UP to Tom and Debbie Farley, and their many friends who for the past 25 years have been responsible for one of Poway’s holiday landmarks, a 78-foot tree of lights that can be seen throughout southern Poway, Sabre Springs and parts of Scripps Ranch. THUMBS UP to those involved with organizing and supporting the 24th annual Rancho Bernardo Thanksgiving Luncheon on Nov. 26. The Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation’s fundraiser serves as a kick-off to the holiday season, and is a great way for locals to reconnect and raise money for many local organizations and projects via grants. This year a combined $53,875 was distributed to 20 groups, proceeds of the foundation’s yearlong fundraising efforts and Rancho Bernardo’s endowment that now exceeds $1.5 million. THUMBS UP to the Poway City Council for giving the go-ahead to a design team to resume work on a new community/senior center for Community Park. Work started several years ago but was halted once the economy went south and the state eliminated local redevelopment agencies. Early plans, shown to the council last week, feature two buildings with about 30,000 square feet of combined space. The idea is for meeting rooms, banquet space, activity space, commercial kitchen and offices to be used both by seniors and the general public. Building it won’t be cheap — perhaps $12 million — but the city has some money set aside and could possibly consider construction bonds like those that were used for City Hall and the sheriff’s station. It would, in our opinion, be a wise use of money.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Voters no longer in charge In his Dec. 5 column, “State GOP congressional recovery not likely,” Thomas Elias fails to mention that with California gerrymandering, voters no longer determine their representatives — the representatives determine their voters. Sooner or later, arrogant Democrat legislators will discover they can extract and redistribute decades of accumulated wealth and capital only so often before California becomes a basket case like Greece is today. Democrats can only fool the public so long before unemployed young people and the 1.4 percent earning the “learning” minimum wage (in California, according to U.S. labor statistics) figure out they are being sacrificed for unions and union political contributions. Well-paid union members get wage increases every time the minimum wage goes up, and they are the primary beneficiaries.

Publicity brings problems The parking lots and trails around Lake Poway are now crowded with hordes of hikers headed to Potato Chip Rock, regardless of whether they are capable of completing the hike. This hike is strenuous and yet, due to the “awesome photo opportunity” of this landmark, I have seen guys with infants on their backs, young children toiling up the incline, people wearing flip-flops, red-faced overweight individuals, all with no hats and little water between them. I’ve lost count of the number of times being asked “Where is Potato Chip Rock?” If you have to ask the way then, in my opinion, you are not prepared for this hike. In addition, it is all too obvious that many are not going up for the wonderful views, for the exercise or to immerse themselves in nature, due to them carrying music devices in their packs which they play loudly and shouts of “let’s party” echoing along the trail. Trash is also increasing along the trail. I also wonder how long the rock itself can endure groups posing on it for photographs.
To alleviate the car parking problem, hikers to Mt. Woodson could be directed to the parking lot located about 100 yards before the Lake Poway gate, thus allowing more space to other users of the park. Also, a sign should be installed at the trail head to Mt. Woodson detailing the severity of the trail, how far it is, that there is no shade or water, the latest time that hikers should set out for the top and the latest they have to be back. Please, no more encouraging visitors hiking to Potato Chip Rock.

Danger of a gun in the home Approximately 500 children are shot and killed every year in the U.S. The rate of American children and teenagers who die in hospitals every year after sustaining gunshot wounds has climbed by nearly 60 percent in a decade. This figure was presented on Oct. 27 at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) National Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Fla. The researchers also identified a link between the percentage of homes with guns and the prevalence of child gunshot injuries. It is important to respect the rights of responsible, law-abiding gun owners while protecting the public safety of all citizens. However, people who bring a gun into their home with the goal of protecting their family may be making a more dangerous decision than they realize.

The power of holiday traditions
question I love to ask people during the year-end holiday season is “What is your favorite family tradition?” Sometimes people share traditions they enjoy with their current family. Often they recall warm childhood experiences. Every once in a while someone will talk about traditions they carry at work. But it is always interesting and the discussions are always laced with an abundance of joy. Traditions are a wonderful way to help us honor the importance of our great year-end holidays. They can serve as a perpetual reminder of what the holidays are truly about. They can help us focus on the things that are most important. They can help us escape from the rampant commercialism that can take us away from the most important things in life. They can help us learn. They can help bring our families closer together and form tighter bonds. They can create wonderful, positive memories. They can help us bring joy to others and to touch the world in meaningful and positive ways. The benefits derived from holiday traditions are almost endless. An obvious one is having a family tradition of finding and setting up the family Christmas tree while sipping holiday hot chocolate and reminiscing over different ornaments in the family collection. Couple this with looking at albums of photos from past holidays while listening to carols on the stereo and wonderful family bonds

Dick Lyles GET REAL will ensue. When my nephew was 4 he spent Christmas in the cancer ward while being treated for leukemia. Now 18, he and his siblings carry on a tradition they established the following year of taking cards and gifts to all the kids in the cancer ward at Christmastime. The joy they bring and the gratification they receive are incomparable. One of the more interesting traditions I heard about when I was consulting with the Zoological Society of San Diego. One of the board members was retired Marine Gen. Victor Krulak, who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Up until the time he died, he would spend a day every Christmas season baking cookies. Then he took a batch to everyone he knew and worked with. The cookies were his own special recipe and he included a personal note with each package. People were touched by the personal caring this demonstrated. At one of the companies I used to run we set aside 10 percent of the profits each year
as a corporate give-back program. We divided the total amount among the employees and let them choose charities to donate their share to in the employee’s name. They were allowed to split their share among up to three different charities if they wanted. We asked only that the companies be registered nonprofit companies, that they give to a specific need rather than the general fund, and that they get involved with the charities they chose in some way. The year I left we wrote checks to approximately 180 different charities. The results were amazing. Whether or not you embrace a particular faith, don’t miss the opportunity this season brings to establish traditions that generate positive impact and provide deeper personal fulfillment. Some of your traditions should be just for you — like making resolutions for the New Year. Other traditions should include your significant other and still others should include the whole family. Establish traditions at your place of work and in your neighborhood — like the folks on Candy Cane Lane who deck out the entire neighborhood or the couple on Joyas Court who make Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus available to the kids every year.

Tiki’s last second wind
ven though I now live in Encinitas, I still a frequent several establishments in Poway. When my pets are sick, I make the 26-mile trek to Animal Medical Hospital on Poway Road. Here’s why: Ever since our 13-year-old Lab, Tiki, had been diagnosed with bladder cancer a few months ago, I’d been bargaining with God (I’m not religious, mind you). First, I asked God to allow Tiki to survive until I got back from a trip to Toronto. She survived. Then I asked God to allow her to survive until my oldest son came home from college for fall break. She survived. Most recently, I asked that she be allowed to survive until Christmas when my younger son was due to return home. But as her steady decline quickened its pace, it became clear I’d bargained all my chips away and there would be no Christmas miracle. So I changed tactics and selfishly began praying that she would die peacefully in her sleep so that I wouldn’t have to put her down. But she didn’t die in her sleep. Why would she? Even if her body was no longer working for her, she loved life too much to give up. The time came when we saw the signs that there was precious little life left to wring from her body. My husband and I spread sheets in the back of the car and lifted her onto the seat. We drove to her favorite bridle path off behind Summerfield Estates where we thought we’d take her for a short walk before heading to the vet’s office. However, as soon as she picked up the scent of that old familiar trail, her nostrils flared and she caught her last second wind. We walked nearly a mile, further than she’d walked since 2010 when she blew out her knee chasing a raccoon across our deck. We passed by a corral where we used to stop every day and feed the horses carrots. I clicked my
Amy Roost AU CONTRAIRE tongue and a black-andwhite mare left her feeding trough to come greet us. I had nothing to offer her and figured that as soon as she realized I was empty-handed she’d go back to her supper. Instead, perhaps sensing something, she raised her muzzle over the fence and placed it on my shoulder. Leaning the side of her head against my face, she breathed a warm, soft exhale onto my cheek
“It became clear I’d bargained all my chips away and there would be no Christmas miracle.”
and neck. I surrendered into this beast’s tender embrace of my sorrow. The mare then did something even more unexpected. She raised her head back over to her side of the fence and bent down to where Tiki’s own muzzle was poking through the chain links. She touched her nose to Tiki’s through the fence. Just like God’s finger reaching out for Adam’s, she seemed to communicate, one animal to another, “take this moment, this beauty with you to the other side so that you may remember how good life was.” Several dog-loving friends advised me to arrange for a home euthanasia but unlike other dogs, Tiki never seemed to mind doctors visits. Besides, I’ve been taking my pets to see Dr. Singh since 1997, and he and his staff are extended family to me. We were greeted with a sad smile from the receptionist, and Tiki was escorted to her usual examining room. She stood patiently while the doctor felt her bladder. He confirmed we were doing the right thing. As he and his assistant led Tiki out of the exam room to go place the catheter in her leg, where two injections would end Tiki’s stay on Earth, my husband silently reached over and took my hand. I sat still, attempting a breathing technique I’d learned from years of practicing yoga, hoping it would help me through what was about to go down. Some time later, a few seconds, an hour — who knows? — I heard the doctor mournfully whisper, “That’s it.” With these words, I exhaled, realizing I too had stopped breathing.

Jose Feliciano, an eight-time Grammy Award winner, will perform on Friday, Dec. 13 while returning headliner Billy Ray Cyrus, a four-time Grammy Award winner and Country Music Hall of Fame member, will sing on Saturday, Dec. 14. “It’s so hard to get quality artists because of the [limited] budget,” said Steve Vaus, who founded the show in 1990, along with Wayne Nelson, and who will also be performing on both nights. Luckily, this year, Vaus and the show organizers were able to get two great artists to lead the annual Christmas show. “I think it’s going to be a pair of great shows, and a pair of very different shows,” said Vaus.

The Welk’s new holiday show successfully combines a few well-known veterans from the long-running television show with a new generation of performers. Continuing through Dec. 29, “A Welk Family Christmas” is a treat for all, whether fans of the iconic television show or those who just want to get into the holiday spirit as it is filled with classic holiday numbers, some likely lessfamiliar offerings plus a few less-holiday related but special numbers that let the Welk veterans prove to attendees that they still are a joy to watch. Among tter REVIEW tish etapl adancing legend Arthur Duncan, who at age 80 is still light and fast on his feet and was memorable to see dancing in person. He became known to television show viewers when performing from 1964 to 1982 and during the multitude of weekly reruns that still air on PBS each Saturday night. Duncan’s talent is showcased in “Art’s Act” toward the end of Act 1 in which he sings several songs plus tap dances at least three numbers.
The next generation of Welk performers in their country music-themed numbers. Photo by Ken Jacques He also joins the company toward the end of the show and is scheduled to perform throughout the production’s entire run. He received a welldeser ved standing ovation from the audience on Nov. 29 after his solo performance. Through Dec. 8, Mary Lou Metzger per formed many solo numbers in both acts, primarily singing but she also showed the audience she is still a dancer, too. Metzger, a joy to watch on stage — especially in the “I Wanna Be a Rockette” number — joined
the television show in 1970 and has remained involved with its PBS airings over the decades. Starting this week and continuing through the show’s final per formance on Dec. 29, Welk veteran Ava Barber takes Metzger’s place among the cast. Barber was hired as a country singer on the “Lawrence Welk Show” in 1974 and remained through 1982. The stage show pays homage to its inspirational leader, the late Lawrence Welk, when Metzger and Barber sing
“May You Always,” a song associated with the television show as some of its clips are projected on screens. As for the eight company members, they are well on their way to successful careers. They sang, danced and acted out a variety of numbers, several in Act 1 had a country flare while those in Act 2 were based in a ‘50s diner setting. Among standout per formances were Lucas Coleman and Nicole Renee Chapman’s rendition of “Little Red Hat,” See WELK, Page A22

first time. “Last time, Billy Ray Cyrus brought the house down,” said Vaus. “He was really funny.” Also performing at the concerts both nights will be Oscar- and Grammy-winner Stephen Bishop, Mary James, Eve Selis and Vaus and his daughter, Poway High senior Anna Vaus. The artists will be performing a mix of their hit songs, as well as Christmas favorites. “[The show] is always such a warm, fuzzy family Christmas experience,” said Vaus. “It’s a fun thing,” said Bishop, who has performed at “Carols by Candlelight” several
times. “It’s just a lot of fun, and I love Christmas songs. I do them quite well, if I do say so myself.” Following each concert, the audience will be invited out to the courtyard where, while holding lit candles, they will sing “Silent Night.” In addition to the music, “Carols by Candlelight” also includes a live and silent auction, as well as raffle prizes, all with the goal of raising funds for Rady Children’s Hospital. This year’s special live auction items are a day with the Escondido Police Department
SWAT team, and an original custom song — for your loved one, special occasion or business — written by Vaus. The song will include a guitar/vocal recording on CD. These items will be available for bidding on both nights. Raffle prizes vary by night, but include an autographed Taylor guitar, an iPad Air, digital picture frames and miscellaneous CDs. The silent auction, which will also be held both nights, features a wide variety of items up for bidding, including San Diego Zoo and San Diego Safari Park passes, a private concert by Vaus at a gala of your choice, jewelry,

which is poured onto sheet pans and baked at 345 degrees. The house was assembled within four days last week, with all gingerbread and other decorations applied by hand in view of RB Inn visitors. Carvallo said one of her favorite aspects is interacting with those of all ages, including families who come back each year to see the work in progress. Their feedback has influenced her design efforts, she said. “Kids told me they wanted more lollipops and color ... they want it brighter and bigger every year,” Carvallo said. She said youngsters are also the staunchest believers, while adults often need to be convinced that what they are seeing is a gingerbread house. “Adults never think it’s real,” she said. “Adults want to touch it.” Adults are most often the ones who cannot resist sampling the house’s candy adornments, she said, so Carvallo has to make daily fixes, replacing gumdrops and other sweets taken as samples. To discourage the practice, the inn has free candy canes on a nearby table and sign requesting no sampling from the house, but that has not deterred everyone. Carvallo said the team never witnesses the demolition in January. The engineers scrape off all the gingerbread and throw everything away. Even the frame cannot be saved since the frosting is too stuck on the wood.

CONTINUED FROM PAGE A1 concert, he contacted Cook, asking if he might be able to conduct the band’s performance of “Russian Christmas Music” instead. After determining that Boyle was healthy enough to travel and conduct, Cook and fellow PHS band director Sylvester Sybilski agreed. “[Russian Christmas Music] was one of my favorite pieces at Poway High School,” said Boyle, who directed the band at Highland High School in performing the piece during his years teaching. “Conducting is a totally different thing than playing,” said Boyle. “Getting to hear [the musicians] up close, and have them respond to you is a powerful thing.” “This event traditionally is standing room only, but since the news got out that Dan would be guest conducting, many of his classmates and faculty have decided to make the trip back to SoCal to participate in the event. One is traveling from as far as Japan,” said Sybilski in an
email. Recording himself conducting the Poway High School band is another step on his quest to leave a history of his life for his young son. Boyle has been working on writing a book of his life for Colby to read when he’s older. “I have most of the biographical stuff done,” he said. Boyle said he also plans to include advice for his son, in case he isn’t able to give the advice himself in person. “Advice on dating, on this, on that,” said Boyle. “You never know [when you’ll die with Huntington’s disease],” said Boyle. One of the big risks with Huntington’s disease is falling, due to uncontrollable muscle jerking. Boyle said he took a bad fall last month. “I don’t know if I’ll die at 60, or next week.” Concert tickets are $5 at the door for adults. Students are free. Space is limited.

Home sales slowing, but ahead of last year SAN DIEGO (CNS) — Signs that San Diego’s residential real estate market is slowing showed up in a report released Monday by the San Diego Association of Realtors, though housing prices remain well above what they were last year. A total of 1,609 single-family homes were sold last month, down 15.6 percent from November 2012, and 11.3 percent below October of this year. The number of homes sold in the Rancho Bernardo/4S Ranch ZIP code 92127 ranked among the highest.

PREP BOYS BASKETBALL PREVIEW
Michael Bower FROM THE BENCH
BOUNCING BACK STRONG Local squads are
Here is a closer look at the local teams:
DEL NORTE on the rise after SAYS ALOHA lackluster year TO WINTER, HAWAII
BY MICHAEL BOWER
he Bench has been around high school sports long enough to know the best way to build camaraderie is by packing up those bags and getting out of town for a few days. Athletes are forced to spend every second with their teammates: riding buses, team dinners, touring a new city, sharing hotel rooms and of course competing in some sort of tournament. It’s an experience high school basketball teams in San Diego often pass up because there are several great tournaments right here that require little or no travel funds at all. But the Del Norte boys basketball team made it a point this year to escape beautiful San Diego and it managed to find a place even nicer this time of year: Hawaii. The Nighthawks worked hard this past summer to raise enough money to travel to Maui to play in the eight-team Maui Winter Classic, which begins Wednesday and concludes Dec. 23. Del Norte will fly out Tuesday and will be staySee BENCH, Page B4
Last season was not exactly a stellar one for the local area when it came to boys basketball. Poway High, Del Norte and Rancho Bernardo went a combined 32-54 and all three were bounced in the opening round of the playoffs. But this year things are looking up. The Titans return their top three scorers, which should help make firstyear coach Scott Fisher’s life a little easier. The Broncos return a strong group of veterans and have a few newcomers that should make an immediate impact.

The Nighthawks return just about everyone, including Valley League Player of the Year Austin Clyde, and should for a Valley League crown.
The new playoff divisions based on competitiveness gives each of the local squads a real shot at making some noise come playoff time.
ԎԎ Coach: Scott Fisher, 1st year ԎԎ Last season: 9-20, lost in first round of Division I playoffs. ԎԎ Division: I ԎԎ Next game: Today (Thursday) vs. Vista at Poway, 7 p.m. ԎԎ Key players: PG, Tom Erb, Sr.; F, Dalton Soffer, Jr.; G, Tyler Green, Sr.; G, Matt Robinson, Sr.; F, Zach Salafia, Sr.; F, Matt Beeler, Jr. ԎԎ Outlook: There is new excitement surrounding the Titans under first-year coach Scott Fisher, especially after Poway knocked off two top-10 ranked opponents in Foothills Christian and El Camino in the opening week. Fisher has inherited a handful of talented players, led by Erb, Soffer and Green. The trio accounted for the majority of the Titans’ points last year, and are expected to do the same this season. “They combined to average about See BOYS, Page B3
ATHLETE OF THE WEEK
Dixon helps Broncos start fast BY MICHAEL BOWER When the CIF San Diego Section created new playoff divisions based on strength of teams rather than enrollment this year, programs were anxious to see where they stacked up. Some were thrilled with their placement — which is done using a mathematical formula that uses data from the past five years and takes state rankings, playoff appearances and opponents’ record into consideration — while others were left humbled and motivated. Players on the Rancho Bernardo High boys soccer team were in the latter group. “We got put in Division II and we realized people think Rancho Bernardo died off,” senior forward Eric Dixon said. “We know we have had a rough past two years and that is why we are there, but we want to prove people wrong and that we belong higher.”
The Broncos, which have won only 10 games combined the past two seasons, are well on their way to showing they can hang with the eight programs in the Open Division and the 16 in Division I. The 5-foot, 10-inch Dixon is a huge reason for that. The speedy forward with a knack for finding the back of the net, delivered three goals in two games last week. He scored the Broncos’ lone goal in a 1-0 win over defending Division II champion La Costa Canyon, now in the Open Division. Dixon followed that with a two-goal performance in a 4-2 victory over Grossmont, which is in Division II this year. For his efforts, Dixon is the Rancho Arbolitos Swim and Tennis Club Athlete of the Week. “After the past two seasons, it is great to come out and get two wins right off the bat,” said Dixon, who is committed to College of Holy Cross in Mas-

PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL PREVIEW
STAYING COMPETITIVE Poway High, Del Norte strong again; Rancho Bernardo quietly getting back on track battle them.” Poway figures to fall right behind Mt. Carmel and Torrey Pines in the Palomar League. The Titans have the tough task of playing in the Open Division with powerhouse La Jolla Country Day, Bishops, La Costa Canyon, Mater Dei Catholic, Mt. Miguel, Serra and Horizon come playoff time. “When we made the decision way back (to stay in the Open Division), my feeling was we did not want to back down the first year and we wanted to be as competitive as we can,” Truesdale said. “My feeling is if we can stay healthy and get all the parts back, it would be good for this group of girls to experience (the Open Division) at least that first year.”
BY MICHAEL BOWER Girls basketball has always excelled in the winter and this year should be no different. Poway returns only one starter, but has a promising group of young talent. Rancho Bernardo appears to have taken a leap forward, after finishing 6-20 a season ago. Del Norte should challenge for another Valley League crown, despite losing its top two scorers to graduation. Here is a closer look at the local teams:
ԎԎ Coach: Jay Trousdale, 27th year ԎԎ Last season: 22-8, lost in semifinals of Division I playoffs ԎԎ Division: Open ԎԎ Next game: Today (Thursday) at Scripps Ranch, 7 p.m. ԎԎ Key players: G, Sierra Claudio, Jr.; G, Daryn Ikeda, Soph.; G/F, Maria Pieroni, So.; G/F, Hanna Archer, Sr.; F, Erin Brunansky, Fr.; G/F, Brooke Hulett, Sr.; G/F, Rylee Thompson, Jr.; G/F, Whitney Wetzel, Jr. ԎԎ Outlook: The Titans return only one starter and hope to develop their inexperienced players quickly. Sophomore Pieroni, a strong shooter, will be one of Poway’s leading scorers along with the lone returner Hulett, who is expected to return
Del Norte will look for Kayla Evans, shooting in left photo, to score more this season. Poway’s Sierra Claudio, on the left in the right photo, will start at point guard this year. Photos by Beverley Brooks from an injury soon. The Titans turn to Claudio to replace last year’s point guard Mandy Castro, who graduated.

45 points a game last year,” Fisher said. “All three of them, and really all of the guys, have improved in many ways during the offseason.” Poway can fill the hoop from the perimeter with the best of them. Erb, who takes pride in being a traditional, pass-first point guard, is accurate from beyond the arc and is one of the top floor leaders in the section Soffer, a 6-foot-4 for ward, averaged just under 18 points per game last year. Green and Salafia along with Beeler are three more reliable options for Erb to distribute the ball to with confidence. The big obstacle for the Titans will be trying to overcome their lack of height. “We are small and we will have to outwork other teams,” Fisher said. “We will have to play harder in order to be competitive because we are small.” So far that has not been a problem, as Poway looks like legitimate contender for the Division I crown. ****
� Coach: Jim Choe, 6th year � Last season: 7-21, lost in first round of Division II playoffs. � Division: II � Next game: Today (Thursday) at Montgomery, 7:30 p.m. � Key players: F, Dillon Wirkus, Sr.; F, Michael Searson, Sr.; G, Devin Goodloe, Jr.; G, Beni Mokili, So.; G, JJ Overton, Fr. � Outlook: The Broncos struggled last year, but return a strong group of veterans and bring in a nice crop of newcomers. Rancho Bernardo looks to have plenty of threats inside and outside with returners Wirkus, Goodloe and Searson leading the way. Wirkus is an athletic wingman with a nice jumper and is always a threat to get to the rim. Goodloe is accurate from behind the 3-point line and athletic enough to score in the paint. The 6-foot-4 Searson, who played quar terback on the football team, should help create plenty of second-chance scoring opportunities on the boards. The Broncos’ lone win in league last year came against Poway. Rancho Bernardo figures to be much more competitive this year. “If we can have all 15 players sacrifice personal success for team success, then we will have a chance to win a lot of games this year,” Choe said.
Del Norte High senior Austin Clyde was the Valley League Player of the Year last season. File photo “This is a great group of guys and I’ve been looking forward to this season for the last nine months.” ****
� Coach: Bob Spahn, 5th year � Last season: 16-13, lost in first round of Division III playoffs. � Division: III � Next game: Tuesday in Maui Winter Classic in Hawaii. � Key players: G, Andy Stone, Sr.; C, Alex Bulkin, Sr.; F, Austin Clyde, Sr.; G, Kyle Sit, Sr.; G, Nick Pamintuan, Sr.; F, Braden Burke, Sr. � Outlook: The Nighthawks believe this is their year to shine with nine seniors on the roster, including Valley League Player of the Year, Clyde. Del Norte should challenge for the Valley League crown
and be able to make some noise in the Division III playoffs. “I am always excited about ever y year, but I think this year we have as good of a chance as we ever have had to win league,” Spahn said. “I also think we have a really good chance to be competitive
in the Division III playoffs.” Five of the nine seniors have significant experience at the varsity level. The 6-foot-3 Clyde is expected to lead the way offensively once again. Stone and Pamintuan can fill it up from the perimeter and 6-7 center Bulkin should get plenty of solid looks this year. Bulkin was primarily a defensive threat in the past, but Spahn is hoping the Nighthawks can run more offense through the four-year varsity player this season. “We kind of changed our offense a little this year to where Alex can get more touches down low,” he said. “We have always had the ball go through Austin, and this year we are hoping it can go through Alex a little more.” Defending Valley League champion Valley Center and Oceanside figure to be the top threats at keeping the Nighthawks from celebrating their first league title. ****
� Coach: Brooks Barnhard, 3rd year � Last season: 12-14, lost in quarterfinals of Division V � Division: IV � Next game: Today (Thursday) at Castle Park, 7 p.m. � Key players: G, Chance Lamont, Sr.; G, Metro Hen-
ning, Jr.; F, Corey Adkins, Jr.; F, Casey Moore, Jr.; C, John Bothe, Soph. � Outlook: The Eagles return three starters, but did lose all of their height to graduation. The tallest guy listed on the Maranatha roster is 6-3 (Lamont and Moore), which Barnhard said is being generous. “Our style has changed a little in the fact that we rely on perimeter play now and we don’t throw the ball inside too much,” Barnhard said. “But our bigs are doing fine. We just go more inside to outside
now.” Lamont, who already has had a 46-point game, is expected to be the leading scorer on most nights. “Chance is the guy we rely on,” Barnhard said. “He will have to get us at least 18 points and he has done a good job of taking charge in that area.” Henning and Moore will also contribute as returners. Henning is a strong ball handler and defensive player. The Eagles are expected to finish in the top half of the Pacific League. Calvin Christian is the favorite.

sachusetts, a NCAA Division I program. “It is definitely a confidence booster, especially since La Costa Canyon won CIF last year.” Dixon scored on a header against the Mavericks with about 24 minutes left in the game. His second goal against Grossmont broke a 2-2 tie. He scored it off a great feed from Evan Roehrig. “We are looking for Eric to be our target player up top and lead our team in points,” Rancho Bernardo coach Kurt Trecker said. “He is a force and the defense has to account for him and I don’t think they will be able to do that with just one player.” Dixon, who moved to the area from Colorado
before his sophomore year, plays club for the San Diego Football Academy. He is naturally left-footed, but has developed a potent right foot strike. “He is a strong and fast kid,” Trecker said, “and now it doesn’t matter which way he goes. He can turn either way and shoot the ball; and he has a cannon of a shot.” Dixon is hoping he can cap his senior season with a title. He thinks the Broncos have what it takes to make a run at the Division II crown. “I think we have a really good chance of winning it,” he said. “We just have to keep on doing what we have been doing and hopefully nobody gets injured and we produce results.”

ing in beach-front condos, where coach Bob Spahn says the team will enjoy several barbecues under the sun. Spahn is also planning to take the team to a luau, on a hike, on a few educational trips and maybe even to do some snorkeling. “If we were going to go, we wanted to make sure we did it right,” Spahn said. “There are only three families going with us so it is mainly just going to be the coaches and the players. Not only are we getting to play in a good tournament, but we are also getting to experience team-building opportunities.” Spahn says he has set aside
a few hours each day to work on strengthening the bond of the team. It might be a leadership class or it could be exploring the island. “We are going to be forced to be with each other 24 hours a day,” Spahn said. “We felt it was important that, if we are going to do this, to do it together and stay together; because we feel team building is such an important part of our success.” The Bench loves the requirement Spahn made of his players. He demanded that in order to go you had to have at least a 2.50 GPA. His team responded by earning a com-
bined 3.74 GPA and 12 of the 13 players on the roster had at least a 3.00. Turns out a trip to Maui is pretty motivating. The Nighthawks raised over $30,000 by running youth camps and selling pledge bracelets. The pledge bracelets were a huge hit. People who bought the bracelet had to sign a contract, pledging not to ever text and drive. “We started that at the beginning of this school year and have been selling them like crazy,” Spahn said. “They are in our school colors and are really nice bracelets..” A trip well earned. Enjoy it for The Bench.
tive form with a trio of returning star seniors and a handful of talented freshmen. “The expectation and what we have been working on the last two years is teaching the girls how to compete,” Harris said. “We are trying to bring in a whole new brand of competition and competitive spirit that RB has not seen in a while. We are looking to kind of restore that this year.” Rudkin, Cunningham and Alexander are the three captains leading a roster nearly half full of freshmen. The Broncos will lean on Rudkin and Cunningham for most of the scoring, but sharing the ball is a strong attribute of both players. Freshman guard Aly Murray is expected to contribute right away, as are many of the other freshmen on the roster. “Aly can do a little of ever ything,” Harris said. “She has played point guard for the majority of her life, but I kind of noticed her to be more productive as the two guard and sometimes as the swingman. She can hit the mid-range shot, the long-range and she is good at finishing in paint. The sky is really the limit for her.” The Broncos won just two games in Palomar League play last season, but should be
much more competitive this year. After a few down years, the program looks to be on the rise. “I think time will tell, but I think we have the tools and a nice collection of talent, commitment and work ethic with this group of girls,” Harris said. “We are making a move in the right direction and I think we have the necessary tools to be competitive in league.” ****
� Coach: Jake McNeely, 5th year � Last season: 17-12, lost in quarterfinals of Division III playoffs � Division: III � Next game: Today (Thursday) vs. Westview at Del Norte, 7 p.m. � Key players: F, Caitlin Cole, Sr.; G, Kayla Evans, Jr.; F, Natalie Davies, Sr.; G, Malachi Green, Jr. � Outlook: The defending Valley League champion Nighthawks have the size, experience and talent to challenge for another league title and the Division III section crown come playoff time. Del Norte returns only two starters and losing top scor-
ers Lexi Reddick and Kaitlin Manuel to graduation will be a tough void to fill, but with Cole, Evans, Green and transfer Davies in the lineup the Nighthawks should have little trouble filling the hoop. Cole, a 6-foot-1 Columbiabound volleyball player and San Diego Section triple jump champion, along with 6-foot Davies gives Del Norte plenty of size in the post, which means a lot of second-chance opportunities and easy baskets against smaller squads. Evans is the floor leader. She can do a little bit of everything, but her smarts is what coach McNeely treasures the most. “She can probably play any position outside of center,” McNeely said. “The thing I like most about her is she takes great care of the ball and makes great decisions. She is also like a coach out there on the floor. She can keep everyone organized. She is a real key for us.” The Nighthawks will likely battle it out with Ramona for the top spot in the Valley League. The Bulldogs return three starters. “On paper, Ramona has the inside track to the title,” McNeely said. “But I think we will give them a run.”

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. 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.
