Inaugural Poway Days 5K Fun Run/Walk along parade route, in park By Michael Bower

Twelve years ago, you would have never caught Poway resident Frank Freund out taking a jog or even a walk. But slowly over the years, with the help of Poway resident and 2006 Boston Marathon Senior Division champion, Ron Enos, Freund went from walking to jogging to racing in triathlons. Now the 53-year-old Freund, with the help of several others, has put together the inaugural Poway Days 5K Fun Run/Walk event to coincide with the Poway Days Parade on Sept. 7. The 3.1-mile run and 1-mile walk in Poway starts at 7 a.m. and the registration fee is only $5 per person and $10 per family. It is limited to 500 participants. The event, which fits in perfectly with the “I Love a Fit Poway!” theme this year, is being sponsored by the Live Right Wellness Center of Rancho Bernardo. Poway’s Dale Holmes, a five-time world BMX champion, is the Honorary Lead Runner. “We are really focusing on getting people out to participate rather than making it a race this year,” said Freund, who is co-chair of the event along with U.S. Army Sgt. Brandon Taylor. “Hopefully, we are starting something that we can build on over the years.” The 3.1-mile course will start in front of the Boys & Girls Club and then continue up Bowron Road to Poway Road. From there, runners will go east to Community

That lifted a huge burden off Freund, who will miss the 5K in Poway Road, because he had already planned to compete in the where San Diego Classic Triathlon that day. they will turn Poway is considered a very active running around and run community.

Veteran BMX champ to be lead runner for inaugural 5K Run/Walk By Michael Bower


ale Holmes first learned of Bicycle Motocross (BMX) from a magazine when he was about 7 years old. Two years later, the native of England was on his way to being one of the best BMX racers in the world.

Holmes turned pro at the age of 16 and would go on to have a career full of accomplishments. Highlights of his brilliant 25-year stint as a professional include five world championships along with countless British and European titles. He was named the British Cyclist of the Year in 1996 and was inducted into the British BMX Hall of Fame in 2009. For a good portion of his career, Holmes resided in England. It wasn’t until 1996 that he decided to grab hold of a sponsorship opportunity and move to the United States. Now the 41-year-old Holmes resides right here in Poway, where he continues to be heavily involved with BMX as a team manager for Free Agent Rockstar. “I have been in Poway for three years now,” said Holmes, who will be the Honorary Lead Runner at the inaugural Poway Days 5K event on Sept. 7 at 7 a.m. “I still race bikes for fun for myself, but I am heavily involved with running the Free Agent Rockstar team. We have been world champions three times.” Holmes does a lot of training with young riders at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista. He is often all over Southern California, especially in the Los Angeles area working with his team. He is hoping to grow the sport of BMX racing in the San Diego area. “I travel a lot, but it is not a job, it is a passion,” Holmes said. “I look to help

the next generation of kids, and there is a good following of BMX in San Diego. I think BMX is a good, positive thing. It was positive for me when I was a young kid.” It certainly took Holmes all over the world. He was constantly meeting new people and making new friends. “It gives you focus as a kid,” he said. “The kids that get into it more seriously can travel around the country and internationally, too. They will meet people from all over.” Holmes has been married for two years to his wife, Adrienne Wells Holmes. The two have a 1-year-old daughter, Leighton. Wells Holmes is the co-founder and executive director of the Toby Wells Foundation here in Poway. The two are heavily involved in charity work and are certainly on board with this year’s Poway Days theme of “I Love a Fit Poway!” “I am a health conscious guy and a fitness guy,” said Holmes, who added he completed a half-marathon about six months ago. “My wife raises money and does a lot of charity stuff and it is something I want to be more involved with.” Said Wells Holmes: “The whole goal here is to focus on health for living ... (Dale) is dedicated to helping kids overcome obesity through cycling and running.” This event will be about the latter of the two, which is good news for those trying to beat Holmes to the finish line.

Live Right Wellness Centers steps up to sponsor run-walk By Robert Fulton Saturday, Sept. 7 is Harvey Hershkowitz’s birthday. Fittingly, it is also the day of the inaugural Poway Days 5K/1 Mile Run/Walk as well as the 49th Annual Poway Days Parade. Hershkowitz is founder of Rancho Bernardo-based Live Right Wellness Centers, now the title sponsor of the 5K/1 mile run/walk Harvey Hershkowitz thanks to a $5,000 donation. The opportunity for Live Right Wellness Centers to be involved with something as traditionrich as Poway Days was impossible to pass up. Hershkowitz said that local business leaders Sue Herndon and Craig Brown approached him about having Live Right Wellness Centers offer a sponsorship. He added that he’s happy to be a part of a community event. Hershkowitz is also on the Palomar Health Foundation Board of Directors with Herndon and Brown “We think local first,” Hershkowitz said. “Anything that has to do with local activities or local businesses, we want to be part of that.” He added that he’s attended the Poway Rodeo in the past and is a horse enthusiast. “The tradition is very important,” Hershkowitz said. Something else that has recently celebrated a birthday is the Live Right Wellness Centers. The first of a planned five centers in the area opened up in May on Bernardo Center Drive. Live Right Wellness Centers is an innovative, comprehensive facility that includes anything from primary care

sponsor continued from page 3 physicians and specialists to physical fitness and sound therapy. “It’s an all inclusive wellness center,” Hershkowitz said. “There’s nothing like it out there. This is the first of its kind. It has both eastern and western doctors.” According to Hershkowitz, Live Right includes family physicians, OB/GYNs, cardiology, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, spa, physical therapy, fitness center, an esthetician and more. Want to take a yoga or a Zumba class? They’ve got that. It’s like medical, wellness, fitness and spa all rolled into one. “Everything you can think of,” Hershkowitz said. “Anything in medicine, or anything in fitness we have here at the Live Right Wellness Center.” The idea behind Live Right Wellness is to have these comprehensive facilities near hospitals and medical centers, with the first near Pomerado Hospital. Hershkowitz said that the centers are appealing to corporations, the public, hospitals and insurance companies because of the services offered. Hershkowitz is quick to credit his partners in the venture and the expansive staff that provides the services. He said that in its first month Live Right saw 400 visitors, and had that increased to 600 in its second month. Hershkowitz sees that number continuing to grow. Hershkowitz has a long history in the health care industry dating back 30 years. His background includes I.T., pharmaceutical and commercial development. Originally from New York City, he’s lived in Rancho Bernardo for the last 16 years. “We’re extremely excited to sponsor the 5K for the community,” Hershkowitz said.


PARADE celebrates fitness

he 49th edition of the Poway Days Parade steps off at 9 a.m. Saturday and will celebrate the theme “I Love a Fit Poway.” Carl Kruse, who served two stints on the Poway City Council and is a fan of being physically fit, is the parade’s grand marshal. (See related story). Kruse currently serves as a Rotary International district governor. His district includes the Rotary Club of Poway-Scripps, which this year took over organizing the annual parade from the Poway Community Association. Parade Chairwoman Pauline Getz, a past president of both the Rotary Club and the Poway Chamber of Commerce, predicts nearly 100 entries, including youth groups, floats, pageant queens and equestrian units, will be included in the parade. The route starts at Pomerado Road and concludes at Bowron Road, near the library. Highlights are expected to include performances by the marching bands of Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Mt. Carmel, Del Norte and Westview high schools, plus equipment and Marines from Poway’s “adopted” unit, the 1st Marine Reconnaissance Battalion at Camp Pendleton. Known as “The Highlanders,” the unit will also be providing parade volunteers. Additional military

representation will be provided through the Army recruiting office in Poway. Parade announcers will be placed at three locations. KYXY radio host Sam Bass will be near the parade’s start. The announcing table near Carriage Road will be staffed by Dave Mason from 107 FM “The Walrus,” and by Laura Gonzalez-Garcia, who will be providing parade commentary in Spanish. The grandstand announcing station will feature NBC 7 news anchor Artie Ojeda and Poway News Chieftain editor Steve Dreyer. Six weeks ago the Rotary Club’s foundation launched a drive to raise $30,000 to pay for parade-related expenses. That goal was reached, then surpassed last week, with organizers saying that more than $35,000 had been received from businesses and individuals. There is also another $16,000 worth of in-kind donations, including $500 from the Poway News Chieftain. Major parade sponsors include the Rotary Club of Poway-Scripps, Walmart, GEICO, Toyota of Poway, Janet DePrinizo and First Stat Nursing Services, U.S. Army, Liquid Design Blanca Fisher, Sheldon Site Utilities, US Bank, Anytime Fitness, Mary Karsig and the family of Mickey Cafagna. Key committee chairs assisting Getz in organizing the parade are Jody Campillo, sponsors; Ginger Couvrette, volunteers; Pat Harrison, entries and Bill Stoudenmire, media.

41st Annual Poway Rodeo Fact Sheet


Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28

As the city celebrates Poway Days with various events, be sure to include the Poway Rodeo in your plans. This will be the rodeo’s 41st year. Our rodeo has something for everyone. It features some of the top riders from across the country who compete in bronc riding, steer wrestling, tie down roping, barrel racing and bull riding. We also have mutton busting and Jr. barrel racing for local kids to compete in. Announcer Wayne Brooks and clown/barrelman John Harrison will entertain the spectators and highlight the stock from Salt River Rodeo Company. The Trail Ride will be Sept. 22 this year, leaving the rodeo grounds at 9 a.m. and returning for a catered lunch provided by Kaminski’s and a raffle. The ride will use the trails of Poway, which are some of the best in the county. The dance after the rodeo on Sept. 27 and 28 will feature the band Savannah. As chairman of Pro Rodeo Productions of Poway, Inc., I want to express my sincere gratitude to our generous sponsors and all my volunteers, who so tirelessly and graciously give up so many, many hours of their time to organize and put on these events for the community. Without them there would be no Poway Rodeo. Thank you! So, mark your calendars and come join us at the rodeo. It’ll be a pleasure to meet you.

41st Annual

Poway Rodeo Returns September 27-28


he 40th anniversary of the Poway Rodeo last year turned out to be a huge success and organizers are hoping the community shows up in droves once again for another spectacular weekend of western country entertainment this year. The 41st annual Poway Rodeo will open with a single show on Friday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Poway Valley Riders Associations grounds, 14336 Tierra Bonita Road. There will be two shows on Saturday, Sept. 28 (1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.). By Michael Bower “There were over 10,000 people that attended the three performances last year,” said Russ Sheldon, who has been involved with putting the rodeo together for all 41 years. “We had a super good crowd on Friday night, a reasonable crowd Saturday afternoon and we always get a great crowd Saturday night.” The kids’ rodeo events have always been popular and this year is no different. Mutton Busting — children under 50 pounds and at least 3 years of age try to ride a sheep for eight seconds — ­­ and the Jr. Barrel Racing events sold out in about 10 days. “Strangely, there is as much excitement for the kids signing up for the rodeo as there is for the professionals signing up,” Sheldon said. “Kids like the excitement of getting out in front of the crowd and competing. Parents go nuts trying to get their kid in the Mutton Busting. We had to put an age limit on the bottom end because people were trying to signup 10-month-olds and that is just too young.” The Boot Scramble, which was held for the first time last year, is also back. There will be one Boot Scramble event for kids ages 8-13 on Friday night and one Saturday afternoon.

Poway Rodeo Program 2013

Poway Rodeo Queens By Elizabeth Marie Himchak




If attending your first rodeo and unsure what is going on, or you’re a longtime attendee with a question you’ve always wanted answered, the 2013 Poway Rodeo queens can help. Poway Rodeo Queen Rachel Owens-Sarno, Junior Queen Jessica Phillips and Young Miss Sarah Hans said their year-long duties as rodeo ambassadors include explaining all the events and giving advice to rodeo attendees when asked. “Take in every minute because you do not want to miss any of the good stuff,” Phillips said, adding this includes the performances, food and fun activities in the back. Owens-Sarno said her advice to first-time rodeo attendees is “definitely come. Do not worry (about understanding what is happening). Just absorb all of it.” “My advice is to come check out the livestock and timed events,” Hans said. “It’s a great way to spend the night with the family and a lot of fun.” The trio were crowned in March after proving their knowledge of rodeo facts, horses (including horse science, tack and terminology) and current events; ability to ride a horse in a designated pattern and presentation run; public speaking ability while answering impromptu questions; plus personality, goals and poise. Poway Rodeo Pageant Director Lisa Banning Bankhead said the titleholders are “walking billboards” for the rodeo and most accessible, so they must be extremely knowledgeable about the events. “They must be very articulate,” she said, explaining they answer questions about events, including scoring, plus help with marketing and advertising by promoting the rodeo in the community and through media outlets including television and radio. She said they also carry the sponsors’ flags during the rodeo, help with the children’s events and move steers and other stock into the chutes. “They are little wranglers,” Bankhead said. “They have to ride really well.” The queens are not just involved with the Poway Rodeo, but throughout their reigns attend other area rodeos, ride in parades and participate in community functions. Owens-Sarno, a 21-year-old Lakeside resident and Grossmont College student who aspires to become an equine surgeon, is well-familiar

with the duties of being a rodeo queen. The 2013 Poway senior title is her fourth, following her reigns as 2009 Miss Ramona Rodeo, 2011 Junior Miss Rodeo Lakeside and 2012 Miss Bulls Only. She perfected her horsemanship skills while competing in western pleasure, hunter under saddle and barrel racing. “I’ve been riding since shortly after I was born,” Owens-Sarno said, mentioning her mother’s rodeo participation for years. This was her first time entering the Poway pageant, though she has ridden in the Poway Rodeo a few times and watched it before. “I had a lot of reasons (to enter),” she said. “I heard a lot about the committee, that it is extremely exceptional to work with ... plus the Poway Rodeo is a lot of fun.” Owens-Sarno said at the Poway Rodeo she will most likely ride her quarterhorse named Mr. Biscuit, a name that “fits his goofy personality,” she said. Her favorite event to watch is steer wrestling because “it’s pretty tough.” As for her favorite duty, that is meeting the children who often ask for her autograph and doing activities with her sister queens.

Participants will get to use the latest Canon equipment and high-powered lenses. Topics covered at the workshop are rear camera focusing, panning and stop action photography. A beverage and snack are included. “People will get to shoot by the chutes, so they will have their own section,” said Nancy Kirchhofer, vice chair of the rodeo. “People will learn how to shoot action sports. Canon is also providing a TV screen that photographs will be put up on and analyzed by the instructor. It is totally a learning situation.” To reserve your spot in the Rodeo Photography Workshop, visit Space is limited.

KIDS SILVER BUCKLE SEATING The Poway Rodeo has always been geared toward providing excitement for kids and this year is more of the same.

Kids will be seated right by the bucking chutes in a fenced area, where they will have their own food, restrooms and bleachers.

reer in criminal investigations, is following in the footsteps of her older sister, Brittney, who was Poway Rodeo Queen for 2011 and 2012 and helped the younger Phillips prepare for the Junior Queen pageant, her fourth competition. In 2011 she won speech, interview and personality awards during the Poway pageant. “I really enjoy the sport of rodeo and all it stands for,” Phillips said. “It’s a really fun time for me. I love the rodeo scene and events.” The lifelong horse rider said while her parents raised horses, it was her sister who got the family into rodeo. They’ve been riding their quarterhorse, Blackjack, for the past 12 years and he will accompany Phillips to the Poway Rodeo. “He’s funny looking, with a long neck and body but short head who looks super excited,” she said. Phillips said she wanted to win the Poway title because “I wanted to represent Poway and enjoy seeing all the people who are making the experience really fun.” While she has won awards in local barrel races and done a lot of running flags, her favorite event to watch is saddle bronc riding, she said. Hans is a 13-year-old Ramona resident and eighth-grader at St. Michael’s School in Poway who wants to be a large animal veterinarian. She won the Young Miss title in her first pageant. She entered because “I really enjoy horseback riding and rodeo. ... It was a really good experience and I met a lot of new, nice people.” While new to pageants, Hans is an experienced competitor, having won the championship buckle in the LVR 2011 Western Pleasure Show, first-place in the 2012 PVRA Beginner/Novice Combined Training/ Cross Country Show and first-place in beginner barrel racing. She has also participated in dressage, hunter-jumper, Gymkhana and fun shows. “My favorite rodeo event is the barrels because I like the thrill of barrel racing,” Hans said, adding she is most looking forward to helping the little kids during the mutton busting contest at the Poway Rodeo. “I like to see the smiles on their faces.” Hans said due to her mother and older sister she has been around horses her entire life. Her first horse ride was at 6 weeks, by age 3 she was leading and helping groom her family’s thoroughbred and by 5 years old cantering on their Arab mare. “I like it because it is nice to connect with a horse and I enjoy riding a great animal,” she said. At the Poway Rodeo she will ride their new quarterhorse named Spike.

Accomplished rodeo entertainer John Harrison returns to Poway

If John Harrison wasn’t working as a rodeo entertainer, he just might be spending his time massaging horses. He is a certified equine massage therapist, after all. “That’s quite possibly the most boring job in the entire world,” Harrison, 34, said during a recent phone interview. “It takes about an

hour and a half to really massage a horse right. Unlike a human being who’ll sit there and converse with you, the horse just stands there. It’s pretty boring.” Luckily for rodeo fans, but maybe not sore horses, Harrison instead stuck with rodeo entertainment. John Harrison is the specialty act at this year’s Poway Rodeo. Harrison grew up around the rodeo. His grandfather was a world champion bull fighter, he was introduced to trick riding at the age of 5, and started trick riding and trick roping when he was 6. As a child growing up, teachers would ask Harrison what he wanted to be when he grew up. He always replied that he wanted to be a trick rider. Those goals shifted slightly as he got older. As a senior in high school, he started riding the barrel. After getting a degree in agriculture business, Harrison returned to rodeo entertainment full time. Or as he likes to joke, after five years of college he came out a rodeo clown. Harrison said that he spends about nine months out of the year attending rodeos from Georgia to California, North Dakota to South Texas. He estimates he traveled 40,000 miles last year. “It’s crazy,” Harrison said, speaking from Silverton, Texas, having finished a performance in Lovington, New Mexico. “You can be in a good city with all kinds of stuff. The next weekend, you’re absolutely nowhere.” The rodeo life suits Harrison. His wife, Carla, and three young children frequently join him, particularly in the summer. Carla works as an auctioneer, and his oldest daughter Addison, 5, has ridden in the grand entry at events. She’s starting kindergarten in Soper, Oklahoma, at the same school where her father attended growing up. Harrison said he likes having his family on the road with him, and enjoys the extended family that is formed on the road. “It’s fun,” Harrison said. “The people on the road is what makes it good. It’s a big ol’ family. You’re hanging out with everybody on the weekend. You may not see the same people every weekend, but you see a different group of guys come in. It’s like a big family on the road. Of course, it beats getting a real job. There’s not many places you can take your kids to work and I can, and that’s one of the things I really

like about it. I can have the whole family there with me on the road, and I’m not missing out on a lot of time with the kids.” To prepare for a performance, Harrison has a simple routine. Get up, tend to his horses, do chores, eat a big lunch, power nap, shower and be set 30 minutes prior to show time. This year is Harrison’s second appearance at Poway, the first came in 2009. He said he liked working with the announcer, and he enjoyed the crowds. “That’s what I feed off of is the crowd,” Harrison said. “The more energetic they are the harder I go and the more fun I have.” Harrison has been nominated three times for Clown of the Year and nominated six times for Comedy Act of the Year, winning in 2012. “The more you do it, the better you get at it.” Harrison said of how he’s grown since his 2009 performance in Poway. “I feel like I’ve gotten consistently better.” Fun keeps Harrison going. Though clowning and climbing in a barrel and entertaining crowds and distracting bulls is hard work, he still looks to have a good time. “I try to go and have as much fun as I can,” Harrison said. “My motto is, if I’m having fun, they’re having fun, so I try to go out there and have a good time.”

Poway Rodeo Program 2013

Rodeo 101 Rodeo action consists of two types of competitions — roughstock events and timed events.

In the roughstock events of bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding a contestant’s score is equally dependent upon his performance and the animal’s performance. To earn a qualified score, the cowboy, while using only one hand, must stay aboard a bucking horse or bull for eight seconds. If the rider touches EARN REWARDS HERE. It is FREE to join the animal, himself or any of his equipment with his free hand, he is disqualified. In saddle bronc and bareback riding, a cowboy must “mark out” his horse; that is, he must exit the chute with his spurs set above the horse’s shoulders and hold them there until the horse’s front feet hit the ground after the initial jump out of the chute. Failing to do so results in disqualification. During the competition, two judges each score a cowboy’s THE FERRETS ARE qualified ride by awarding 0 to 25 points for the rider’s performance and 0 to 25 points for the animal’s effort. The judges’ COMING scores are then combined to determine the contestant’s To Support score. A perfect score is 100 points. Local 1 (619) 309-6444 In timed events steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, barrel racing and steer roping; cowboys and cowgirls compete against the clock, as well as against each other. A contestant’s goal is to post the fastest time in his or her event. In steer wrestling and the roping events, calves and steers are allowed a head start. The competitor, on horseback, starts in a three-sided fenced area called a box. The fourth side opens into the arena. A rope barrier is stretched across that opening and is tied to the calf or steer with a breakaway loop. Once the calf or steer reaches the head-start point — predetermined by the size of the arena — the barrier is automatically released. If a cowboy breaks that barrier, a 10-second penalty is added.

to cheer for again, as the PRCA-sanctioned event is the final chance for cowboys to earn money to qualify for the National Rodeo in Las Vegas in December. Only the top-15 money earners advance to the national finals, so the Poway Rodeo usually draws the top contenders and those riders who are on the bubble. “The riders on the bubble of making it to the National Rodeo definitely come out because they can get in four rodeos that weekend here in Southern California,” Sheldon said. “So that makes it pretty important if you are chasing money and points.” The rodeo is comprised of seven competitions: bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, steer wrestling, tie down roping, team roping and barrel racing. The Poway Rodeo adds $3,500 per event — which comes to a total of $28,000 — to the prize purse. The rest of the purse is made up of contestant entry fees. Last year, the total prize purse was $40,200 and Sheldon expects it to be even higher this year. Wayne Brooks for the 10th straight year will announce all the action. The 2005 Announcer of the Year is always a crowd favorite for his ability to make the audience feel a part of the performances. John Harrison, known for his quick-wit comedy and amazing ability in trick riding, is this year’s clown and Specialty Act performer. Harrison has performed three times at the National Finals Rodeo and has been nominated six times for Comedy Act of the Year. Immediately following the rodeo on both nights is the Rodeo Dance. It’s free and open to everyone 21 and over.

grand marshal continued from page 5 Diego and Imperial counties plus one club in Riverside County. “I’m telling them to be the torch bearer, lighting the path of Rotary,” Kruse said, adding he is likely the first district governor to incorporate Olympic torches in a Rotary theme. “It’s mainly inspirational. I’m reaching inside their hearts to find their passion.” The response from many of the district’s 34,000 members has been “fantastic” he said. Kruse became a Rotarian about 18 years ago because of the organization’s efforts to eradicate polio worldwide, a disease that devastated several of his friends’ families back in the 1950s. Several years ago he went to India to participate in a Rotary-organized polio vaccination clinic for children. “It was an eyeopening experience,” Kruse said. In addition to helping the clubs increase and enhance their memberships and charitable giving to the Rotary Foundation, Kruse’s other goals include stimulating the clubs to do more public service, building its future leaders and promoting Rotary’s international theme for the year, which is “Engage Rotarians to change lives,” he said. “It means each Rotarian and club must reach out more to the community and make the club more available for service, fellowship and friendship.” Through a wide assortment of projects, he said, “We can change people’s lives.”

Poway Kiwanis takes over Community Pancake Breakfast

What could be better after a 5K run than a hot breakfast?

The Poway Kiwanis are taking over the Community Pancake Breakfast this year, from the previous pancake flippers, the Poway Lions Club. The event is being held 7 - 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7 in Community Park, right near when the 5K Run/1-mile walk begins and ends, on the basketball courts. Tables and chairs will be set up for you to enjoy a hot meal of pancakes, sausage, fruit, juice and coffee while winding down from your run — or from watching. Cost of the breakfast will be $5 adults, $3 children. Tickets will not be

available in advance. “We have no idea what the turnout will be,” said Dr. Neil Tarzy, from Poway Kiwanis. “It could be 50 people, or 400.” Whatever the number, Kiwanis will be ready to feed them. “We’ll do our best, and hopefully it will turn out well,” said Tarzy. Kent Brooks, also from Poway Kiwanis, said that the club will completely handle set-up, cooking, serving and clean-up on their own, and is expecting between 15 and 25 Kiwanians and Kiwanis affiliates to be cooking, serving and cleaning at the breakfast.

By Emily Sorensen

Brooks also said that while their end time is listed as 10 a.m., the club would keep serving a little after 10 to allow parade-watchers a chance to get breakfast as well. Money raised from the event will go to the Kiwanis Foundation to fund the club’s many charitable projects. Brooks said that whether Kiwanis continues to do a Poway Days community pancake breakfast depends on the success of this first one. “This is our trial run,” said Brooks.

Spread joy by giving away roses

Robert Cray Band comes to Performing Arts Center By Emily Sorenson

By Barbara Norton This time of year, seeing Powegians giving out roses to family, friends, co-workers and strangers can only mean one thing — Poway is celebrating Good Neighbor Day. This year, Jeanne Hume, owner of Crystal Gardens Florist in Poway, is continuing the tradition she help start more than 15 years ago. Starting at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11, she will start distributing a half-dozen roses to anyone who comes to her shop at 13565 Poway Road in Creekside Plaza until the supply runs out. Those who receive the roses can then pass them on to others. In the past Hume would give out roses by the dozen, but decided last year to divide them up in half-dozen bundles so more could participate. Although it is a huge financial commit-

ment, Hume said the best part of the day is seeing the response of the people who receive the roses. “I love watching people come in and tell me stories about how they affected someone’s life the year before,” Hume said. “It’s just great seeing everyone’s reaction of receiving something just because. There’s no amount of money that can buy that reaction or evoke those emotions, and really, it’s just a cute, fun, sweet thing to do.” It is also a great way to give back to the people who have supported her, she said. Hume especially enjoys it when mothers bring in their young children to pick out the flowers. “You just see the surprise in the kids’ eyes at all the colors and the roses they get to pick from,” she said.

Get ‘A Taste of Country’ through music and food Sept. 21 Enjoy gourmet food truck offerings and great country music when the inaugural “A Taste of Country” is held from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Poway Valley Riders Association (PVRA) grounds at 14336 Tierra Bonita Road. The event is sponsored by the Poway Chamber of Commerce. “We are very excited to present an entertaining evening for the entire community to

celebrate Poway Days,” said chamber President and CEO Dolores Canizales. “A Taste of Country will provide a way for Poway residents and businesses to come together as one community, and at the same time, enjoy great music, food, beer and wine in a relaxed

and fun setting.” Music will be provided by the popular local band Kanan Road and food truck vendors are being invited to serve their specialties. Admission tickets will be $5 pre-sale or $10 at the door. Attendees will pay for their food truck selections and can purchase beer and wine tasting tickets, she said. Kanan Road started 10 years ago and is comprised of three brothers, Kanan, Kyle and Kory Cox. They write their own songs and have self-recorded over 40 of them. They call their style of music “California Country.” The group, based in the Temecula Valley, was scheduled to play Sept. 4 at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido and at the Casino Pauma on Sept. 6. Recent performances have included The Wagon Wheel Festival, The Frontier Days Festival, The Round Up Rodeo, The Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival, The Antelope Valley Fair, The Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival, and The Bluebird Cafe.

After completing the courses, riders will return to Old Poway Park to enjoy a vendor expo, music, massage therapists and an optional barbecue lunch at $12 per person.

The 28th annual Tour de Poway Fun Bike Ride will attract both serious and weekend bicyclists from around Southern California when it returns on Sunday, Oct. 6. Well over 1,000 riders are expected to depart from the start-finish line near Old Poway Park to conquer courses ranging in length from 18 to 100 miles. K.C. Butler, a Poway resident, has been running the event for the past 25 years and says the Tour de Poway is now among the longest-running bike rides in the state. Event proceeds will go to the Kiwanis Club Foundation and to other organizations staffing the various aid stations. The 100-mile course is held in memory of popular Poway rider Nick Venuto, who died in July 2011 when his bicycle was struck by an out-of-control vehicle in Rancho Penasquitos. The course has grown to become the most popular ride, according to Butler. The course features five well-stocked aid stations with a total of 4,500 feet of climbing. Most of the climbing is in the first 30 miles of the ride. The 100- , 62- and 50-mile courses begin with a 6 percent, three-mile climb up the Poway Grade, followed by a seven-mile downhill ride. The eastbound lane of the uphill ride will be closed from 7 to 9 a.m. from Espola Road to Highway 67, except to area residents.

Poway Days 2013

September 5, 2013

Rendezvous: Experience the Old West By Barbara Norton Step back in time during Rendezvous on Saturday, Oct. 12 and Sunday, Oct 13 in Old Poway Park. The gathering of living history groups, entertainers and community members will be recreating the 1820s to the 1890s in the park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. Come back later on Saturday for a barn dance that will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. in Templar’s Hall located in the park. Here you can learn traditional dancing. And it’s all free. Presented by the City of Poway and the living history groups Shadow River Regulators, Cimarron Ridge Old West Productions and the Apache Canyon Gang, Rendezvous has proven to be an annual crowd pleaser. The day promises a lot of oldtime action, fun and adventure for all ages as well as a chance to experience what life was like years ago. So put on your old-time

clothes and be a part of living history. Historical encampments will be set up that offer a chance to get a close-up look of how cowboys, mountain men and buckaroos lived in the Old West. Many of the encampments will have display tables filled with tools and weapons commonly used more than a century ago, along with an expert to explain how the items were used. Other activities include panning for gold along Rattlesnake Creek, which runs through the park, and blacksmithing demonstrations north of the station. However, a stroll through the park may be interrupted by a reenactment of a mock gunfight or the sound of Gatling gun or cannon

firing demonstration. The steam locomotive will be running throughout the day for a nominal fee, although it may make an unscheduled stop now and then. After all, back then when there was a train running, there was a chance of a train robbery. Old Poway Park’s other regular attractions will be open during Rendezvous, including the Boardwalk Arts and Crafts Market, which features demonstrations of crafts of bygone years and locally crafted items for sale, the Poway Historical Museum, a treasure trove of local history, and the Nelson House, an early 20th century house that was moved to the park and furnished as a home from that era. For those who wish to get a head start on Rendezvous, a Hobo Campfire and Sing-A-Long will take place the night before beginning at 7 o’clock and lasting until 8:30. Join members of the Poway Folk Circle along the banks of Rattlesnake Creek in traditional campfire songs and listen to authentic stories by renowned storyteller Charles Johnson. For details on Rendezvous, including tips for those who want to dress the part, visit the City of Poway website at www.poway. org/oldpowaypark.

Boomer fitness starts with getting in motion By Pierre Mugabo In the 1940s, soldiers returning from war brought forth the generation that has come to be known as baby boomers. They were dubbed “The world’s most affluent, influential, spoiled, and self-indulgent generation” by John Hardy in his journal article “Boomers: The Suddenly Hot Consumer.” According to Hardy, over 60 percent of seniors have been diagnosed with at least one chronic medical condition. Unfortunately, health issues can be used as an excuse to steer away from a fit life and into a sedentary one. While many boomers think it is impossible to improve their level of health and fitness, I am here to tell you that there are a few simple steps you can take to get fit and stay fit. Let’s face it; life comes at you very fast. Next thing you know you have children, a spouse, and your parents to take care of. In a situation like that it is very easy and convenient to tell yourself that you are a victim of circumstance. This is neither wise nor true. No matter what reasons you have, do not let them become excuses to avoid making time for your own health. The best way for boomers to get fit is to keep moving. This starts with going on hikes, finding an active hobby, or joining a local gym. The concept is to stay active. As a personal trainer, the most common objection I hear from boomers is that they do not know where to start. They lack the basic knowledge of the “how.” Luckily, the World Wide Web provides an answer. The Internet has a plethora of exercises that are designed to achieve whatever goal you have in mind. The key is to make a goal, give yourself a timeframe and ad-

your method as you go. Fitness is not an exact science but it is a basic one. If you apply a good diet, a solid cardio regiment, and a sensible weight training regimen, there is nothing that you cannot achieve. By no means are you supposed to go out there and lift a ridiculous amount of weight or run a marathon. However, it has been proven that people who are active live a longer and more satisfying life than those who are not. For nutrition, you have to understand that your metabolism has slowed down, so you need to regulate the amount you eat and how often you eat. In regard to cardio, do not let your age convince you that you are forever doomed to walk and never run. If you are worried about the impact, elliptical machines and adaptive motion trainers are excellent options. It is important to note that people running full marathons started out by running a single mile. The key is to take the first step! Finally, do not be intimidated by the machines in the gym. With proper education, they can be used as wonderful tools in your journey toward a healthier you. There is a level of humility in the fitness industry that is overlooked by most. If you embark on a journey to be fit, you need to understand that everyone you encounter on your journey, no matter how fit or unfit, is in the exact same place that you are, trying to get better. If the title of “baby boomer” applies to you, you are in an opportune situation to take control of your life. Only you can choose how you would like to spend the remainder of your life on earth. You can choose the sedentary lifestyle, or you can get up, get out, and get active. It is often said, “In fitness nothing is given, everything must be earned.” So, what are you waiting for? Pierre Mugabo is the lead trainer at Anytime Fitness in Poway. Visit the gym at 12222 Poway Road or call 858-842-2222 for more information.

Family matters: Help or hindrance? By Janice Baker Your family can play a critical role in weight and diabetes management. Family members may have good intentions, but sometimes their idea of “support” is not always helpful to you. Here are some strategies to consider for balancing this important aspect of your home environment. Managing weight and blood sugar is not just about your nutrition and exercise program, it is also about how your new lifestyle choices will affect and be affected by those you live with. How to help your family members help you: • Educate family and friends about diabetes. Many are confused about what diabetes is and often make comments or recommendations based on unreliable, inaccurate or unrealistic information. Tip: Invite friends and family members to diabetes education or support groups, or even to join you at medical appointments for clear and direct information from credible healthcare providers. • Be specific about the kind of support you need. Family members can be more supportive with direct requests for ways they can be most helpful. Tip: Provide a shopping list of healthful foods to keep on hand, ask for reminders for medication or glucose testing schedules, or help with stress management techniques (such as deep breathing or massages) Remember, stress can elevate glucose levels and also trigger the urge to eat when not hungry. • Ask your family members to join you. Better eating

and exercise habits can benefit everyone in the family and the decision to manage weight and diabetes can result in everyone improving their health. Tip: Try a new recipe together or plan regular exercise sessions. Share restaurant meals and suggest outings that don’t center on food, such as trips to museums or classic car shows. Bring along healthful snack choices or have an old-fashioned picnic. • Your health status is not just about numbers; it involves relationships with your significant others. Having support and encouragement is key to diabetes management and weight control. For many of us, it’s not easy to ask for help. However, you may also have an opportunity to offer support and encouragement to others — remember the concept of “paying it forward!” Janice Baker is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator, Certified Nutrition Support Clinician, and is Board Certified-Advanced Diabetes Management. Would you like more support, insight and education to assist you in living healthfully? Take advantage of individual nutrition consultation services or community health education classes offered at Arch Health Partners. For more information, call 858.675.3179 or visit www.
