Soccer groups sparring over assets

By KAREN BRAINARD A soccer feud continues between two groups in Ramona with one filing a legal complaint against the other. In November 2012, a group of parents split from Ramona Soccer League (RSL) to form Ramona Futbol Club (RFC) to create a higher level of competitive play and coaching. Since the split, which group should retain certain soccer equipment and portable lights has been in dispute. David Williams, vice president of Ramona Soccer League, said RFC has not fulfilled an agreement that allows it to keep $22,000 worth of soccer equipment and portable

Ramona Community School Principal Kathryn Gunderson makes good on a promise to the school's Peace Club when she kisses Piper in front of students, employees and parents before classes start last Wednesday morning. She also kissed Piper's twin, Pretzel. The three wore red lipstick for the event. Peace Club members met their Great Kindness Challenge, earning official Kindness Certification, when each completed 30 acts of kindness such as offering a smile, helping someone clean up, writing a thank you note and bringing flowers to a staff member. The Gill family provided the twin goats.

Fire ravages garage, causes smoke damage to adjoining structure Cal Fire/Ramona crews battled a nasty garage fire on Old Julian Highway that sent the odor of smoke wafting through eastern Ramona Sunday evening. The fire in a two-car garage in front of a duplex at 283 W. Old Julian High-

way erupted around 6:20 p.m., according to Cal Fire Capt. Kendal Bortisser. Forty minutes later, crews gained the upper hand on the blaze, knocking down the flames with no injuries within 15 minutes, fire officials said.

The classic fully restored pickup in the garage was destroyed as were the two vehicles parked in front of the garage, said Black. The residents in the home with the smoke damage were offered American Red Cross assistance but declined since they were able to stay in the structure, said Black.

Because Ramona’s two ambulances had responded to back-to-back medical aid calls prior to the fire, Barona provided mutual aid and sent an engine and an ambulance, said Black. Cal Fire/Ramona response included three fire engines and two brush engines, he said.

Graeff receives Superintendent of Year honor By MAUREEN ROBERTSON Ramona Unified School District Superintendent Robert Graeff, Ed.D., has been selected Superintendent of the Year among districts in San Diego and Imperial counties, Assistant Superintendent Tony Newman announced at the school board meeting on Feb. 13. “We want to, on behalf of all of our schools and our employees, congratulate Dr. Graeff on this honor and say, ‘job well done,’” said Newman. The Region 18 honor comes from the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA). “This honor for our superintendent is a major

Newman wrote in an announcement to all Ramona school employees on Feb. 14. “In recognition of his outstanding service to our district and local community, Dr. Graeff has earned this impressive distinction for the current school year.” Graeff will be honored at a dinner hosted by ACSA and the California School Boards Association in early May, Newman said. “The award this year, obviously, is not for me — how could it be?” Graeff said later in the board meeting. “It’s for the work that this board and our leadership team did last year during some very tough times.” As a result of working with teachers, support staff and the community, the atmosphere in the district changed rapidly, “and you hear the excitement week after week after week ... about common core and students and learning,” he said. “That’s a real tribute to the board and your leadership to be able to go from

there to here,” said Graeff, thanking trustees for their support and thanking the district’s administrative team “for day-to-day inspiration and guidance.” Graeff, superintendent of Ramona’s public schools since the 2008-09 school year, joined the Ramona district as assistant superintendent of education services in 2001. His career in education began as a teacher in Kearny High School in 1976. His doctorate in education has a concentration in educational leadership, and his Master of Arts Degree is in education. As an undergraduate, he was a music major and an English minor. He has credentials to teach music and English, and he also has an administrative services credential. Each year for the past 14 years ACSA has honored one or more Ramona Unified administrators, Graeff said at the board meeting. He credited the school board for its support “and identification and nurturing of outstanding administrators in our school district.”

Trustees to review bond consultant’s proposed contract By MAUREEN ROBERTSON In an apparent effort to gain consensus, two Ramona Unified school trustees and Superintendent Robert Graeff will review the proposed contract with Urban Futures Inc. and renegotiate with Isom Advisors, the Urban Futures division that will work as bond consultant for the district. The 5-0 vote came after trustee Bob Stoody expressed concerns about what he called possible land mines in the proposal. Trustees will consider results of the renegotiation at a special meeting expected either next week or the first week in March. “At a minimum, I’d like to not pass this contract until we take it to a feebased person and say, ‘please look at this con-

tract and tell us where the land mines are,” said Stoody. Stoody said he had sleepless nights during the district’s failed attempt to pass a $66 million general obligation bond in 2012. “I’m not comfortable going back to Isom,” he said. Isom Advisors was the district’s bond consultant in the 2012 election. The defeat in 2012 had more to do with “circumstances of the day” than the district’s strategy, said Graeff. Among factors affecting the district’s 2012 bond bid were state taxincrease proposals on the same ballot, the state’s new and unpopular fire fee, negative press, Poway Unified School District’s capital appreciation bond that was making national news, the lack of prominent endorsers, the disSee BOND CONSULTANT page 10

Community school offers tailor-made education without private costs By JESSICA KING Priority enrollment for the 2014-15 school year is under way at Ramona Community School, where the traditional classroom takes a back seat to individualized education. Through Ramona Unified School District, the school at the corner of Ramona Street and Hanson Lane offers public school students two nontraditional programs generally reserved for the private sector. There’s the Montessori Academy for kindergarten through sixthgrade students and the Mountain Valley Academy for kindergarten through 12th grade. “We like that we offer a choice here in Ramona,” said Mountain Valley teacher Kelly Hicks. “You’re not going to see that in a lot of school districts.” Montessori is a five-daya-week, 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. program based on the teachings of Italian physician Maria Montessori, who theorized children

What: Parent Information Night Where: Ramona Community School 1010 Ramona St. When: Feb. 27, 6:30 p.m. excel the best when encouraged to work at their own pace, developing their own self-discipline and motivation. Mountain Valley is a supervised — and free — home schooling program that allows students to come to campus on a limited basis for testing and gives their parents a direct resource line to teachers any day of the week. Montessori fifth- and sixth-grade teacher Laura Worthen said that on any given day her students could be found working on the floor, in the corners or moving around the classroom. “We don’t expect them to sit down and be quiet,” she said. “We like them to be moving around and engaged when appropriate.” But don’t mistake Montessori for a free-for-all. Worthen said her students and their families have to

be committed to self-discipline and taking responsibility for the program to work. The fact that both programs have two grades grouped into one class is no coincidence. Worthen said it helps foster a sense of family among the students and helps them and their teachers become more invested in the outcome of their interactions. For home-schooled Mountain Valley students, their interactions on campus are less frequent but their limited time together is often spent conversing and sharing ideas. “I can give the same assignment and they come back so different because they’re coming from different mindsets and it’s fabulous,” said Hicks, who teaches Mountain Valley fourth- and fifth-graders. “The stereotype of home-

Mountain Valley Academy teacher Kelly Hicks discusses how she’s seen students thrive under an independent learning environment. schooled students being socially inept is just not true. They’re excited when they do come to campus and can’t wait to share their ideas and see what other students did with it.” Unlike Montessori students, who attend classes on campus five days a week, Mountain Valley

students up to grade eight meet on campus one-anda-half days a week and the academy’s high schoolers follow a college-like class schedule unique to them. Mountain Valley also coordinates a variety of field trips and hands-on activities, as well as honors and Advanced Place-

ment courses for high school students working toward two- and four-year colleges and universities. Older Mountain Valley students interested in competing in team sports also can do so through Ramona High School. Principal Kathryn

The importance of dental care for your furry best friend(s): Like people, our pets are prone to dental disease. National Pet Dental Month, in February, focuses on the importance of controlling and preventing dental disease in cats and dogs. Untreated dental disease is associated with both infection and pain. Studies in people, dogs and cats show that untreated infection in the mouth can lead to infections in other parts of their bodies. • • • •

Teeth Cleaning is a treatment that requires more than scraping the tarter off the tooth surface. The most important step is cleaning under the gum line. Your veterinarian is the only professional who is trained and skilled to direct your pet’s dental health care. Did you know that we carry diets approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council? The VOHC seal of approval certifies that a dental diet will decrease plaque and tarter accumulation on teeth. “Dear Dr. Wood & Everyone at Adobe, Your kindness is appreciated very much.

Free tax help from volunteers includes e-filing On Saturdays starting Feb. 22, certified AARP tax aide volunteers will be in Ramona Library to offer free tax help to taxpayers with low to moderate income. The free service includes preparation of all tax forms and e-filing the returns. While there is no age limit, special attention will be given to those age 60 and older. Volunteers will be in the library, 1275 Main St., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Satur-

days through April 12. Appointments are requested at the library tax area. An information sheet on what forms to bring are in the tax area. Space is limited, so volunteers advise interested persons to register on the signup sheet and include a phone number. This year seniors may register their Social Security number to help avoid identity theft, even if their income might only be Social Security.

Brief vehicle pursuit leads to woman’s arrest Arraignment for a 40-year-old woman suspected of leading deputies on a brief pursuit in Ramona was scheduled for Aug. 19 in El Cajon. Charlyn Maccini was arrested last Thursday afternoon on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, misdemeanor evasion and for possession of methamphetamine and hashish oil, according to San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Hank Turner at the Ramona substation. g

Gunderson said each program currently has around 250 students for a total Ramona Community School enrollment of about 500. There are no caps on either program at this time, but Mountain Valley cannot accept most special needs students, she said. Montessori, however, can support special needs students.

Around 3:30 p.m., a deputy attempted to pull Maccini over at state Route 78 and Olive Street, suspecting she may have been involved in an attempted residential burglary, the lieutenant said in a statement. Maccini allegedly refused to yield to the deputy, triggering a three-minute pursuit that ended in her arrest in the 2000 block of Pine Street. “Additional charges are pending,” Turner said without elaboration.

The priority enrollment period for the 2014-15 school year ends March 14, though applications will be accepted through June, said Gunderson.

District director requests later meetings, review of board policies By KAREN BRAINARD The meeting time of the Ramona Municipal Water District Board of Directors will once again be reconsidered, this time at the request of Director Rex Schildhouse. The Division 3 director said 10 to 12 constituents have told him they would like the meetings, held at 2 p.m. the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, changed to a later time. Schildhouse proposed 7 p.m. That was one of several agenda requests Schildhouse

g

had Feb. 11 after a heated exchange between him and Darrell Beck, board president. Schildhouse complained at the start of the meeting that an agenda request he submitted Feb. 4 was not included on the meeting’s agenda. Instead, he said, the request led to a note in his director’s mailbox and four or five phone calls, one between Beck and General Manager David Barnum, that determined the item should not be added to the agenda. Beck refuted the claim that

Soccer groups

he and Barnum decided by phone the item should not be on the agenda. Barnum told the Sentinel that Schildhouse’s request had to do with board information and meeting procedures that are covered in Policy 1 of the district’s Legislative Code. Barnum said he put a copy of Policy 1 in each director’s mailbox and asked Schildhouse if he wanted the Legislative Code chapter addressed at a meeting. The general manager said there seems to be a misunderstanding. He also

noted that directors must write an agenda memo on a requested item. According to Barnum, he had a phone conversation with Beck on procedural aspects of meetings. After Barnum gave his general manager’s report at the Feb. 11 meeting, which included information about the San Diego County Water Authority’s drought response, Schildhouse asked Beck if the Ramona district has adequate water supply to tackle a fire in dry conditions.

From page 1

lights purchased with RSL funds. RSL still owns the lights and equipment, he said, but RFC is using them. “That leaves us open to liability,” he said. On Jan. 8, RSL filed a complaint in San Diego Superior Court, North County Division, against RFC and several individuals in that organization. Causes for the complaint, which seeks damages of less than $25,000 and costs of the lawsuit, are misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment and breach of contract. “This is a head-scratcher,” said Don Martin, Ramona attorney representing RFC. “Basically the allegations are wrong and frivolous.”

Martin said the legal complaint was filed improperly in the North County Division of Superior Court and should be filed in the San Diego Central Division. Seven individuals are named in the suit, listed as either former RSL board members who voted for the split or current RFC board members, but Martin questioned the rationale of naming those seven people. The decision to purchase the portable lights, at a cost of about $12,000, was approved by a 9-5 vote of the RSL board on Nov. 26, before a unanimous vote at that meeting to split the club, according to the meeting minutes. Martin said the board also voted that RFC could keep the lights and other

identified equipment. Both groups developed modified agreements that said RSL allows RFC to use the assets and will transfer ownership if RFC obtains state and federal tax exemption status by July 31, 2013. RFC has applied for tax exempt status but its website says federal nonprofit status is pending. If conditions for transfer are not met, the modified agreements state that RSL will retain full ownership of said assets and RFC will return them. Martin, however, noted that neither modified agreement was signed by both parties so are not binding. “Hopefully a mediator can resolve this,” he said.

“I’m just asking for a statement of confidence,” Schildhouse said. Beck deferred the question to Barnum, who said the board cannot discuss items that are not on the agenda. Schildhouse turned to legal counsel to get an opinion. “It’s appropriate to ask a question on a subject that’s raised,” responded Ron Ball with Best Best & Krieger LLP, the district’s legal counsel. After Schildhouse repeated his question, Beck said the board would move on to committee reports, which elicited a comment from Schildhouse that he did not get an answer. “I’m running this meeting,” Beck responded, but allowed Barnum to provide an answer. Barnum said there is plenty of water to put a fire out, but he added it depends on the fire and future conditions. “If the drought continues, that could change,” he said. At the end of the meeting, Schildhouse gave a list of agenda requests that included a presentation by legal counsel on board policies, what board members should be doing, rules and regula-

RS

tions for compensation, and what constitutes a quorum, as well as moving the meeting time so more members of the public can attend. A later start time was requested in early 2013 by Division 2 Director Kit Kesinger, who has not been at a meeting since April 2013. Kesinger said he cannot make 2 p.m. meetings because he works in El Cajon. The time was changed from 4:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. in July 2012. Kesinger was elected to a four-year term in 2010. Barnum told the Sentinel the next board meeting, Feb. 25, will include a Policy 1 workshop. The board will meet at 2 p.m. at the Ramona Community Center, 434 Aqua Lane. In other business: •Directors awarded a construction contract to TC Construction Company Inc., which provided a $770,000 bid for site improvements for the Poway Pump Station Secondary Power Source Project. The project will run a natural gas line to the station and add a new pump that can run on both electricity and natural gas to provide a dependable power source if electricity goes out.

Community newspaper celebrates 128 years

Common Core history reveals its purpose

R

amona Sentinel starts its 128th year as the community’s newspaper with this issue and, starting with the first issue in March, it will have a new look. When the Sentinel changed hands in November, the most common question was: What does this mean for our community newspaper? Other than a stronger resource base, there’s been no change in this paper’s mission to report the goings-on in town, whether they be the planning group and school board or the garden club and Pony Baseball. In two weeks, readers will see a physical change as the Sentinel returns to two sections. The news section will be what’s called a broadsheet, the large format readers were familiar with until the decision was made several years ago to publish as a tabloid. Tucked inside the broadsheet will be our Community News section in a tabloid format. We hope you like the change. Owners, come and go. Owners, publishers, general managers and editors have changed in the past 128 years, but the Ramona Sentinel belongs to the community it serves. This is your community newspaper where you can read the latest high school sports scores, shake your fist at or shake the hand of an opinion writer, and perhaps smile when you see photos of wild turkeys heading for the hills the week before Thanksgiving — or the school principal who has earned a doctorate make good on a promise to students and kiss twin goats.

already had to keep for the state and feds. They were not allowed to have any events, nor to serve any food, save for the sort bought at the local market in plastic wraps. After the meeting with the king’s men — uh county staff, there was a great rebellion. The peasants — uh, wine makers throughout the land known as San Diego County gathered to form an army. It was the greatest, grandest gathering of any ever known before, with a hundred or more from East County, North County and all around the county plotting to protect their farming and wine making operations. They all said the ordinance, while not perfect, was working. Wineries were beginning to thrive, many new farmers were planting grape vines to support the industry. And so they are arming themselves with facts and figures, and arguments in favor of leaving the golden goose alone. No one knows how this story will end yet. But the moral of it is: If it Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It.

A great takeaway from Jenna Jaruegui’s guest commentary (Feb. 6 issue) is that we all go onto the web and learn more about Common Core. Once I did that — prompting my commentary a few weeks ago — I was able to see the growing trend of parents and teachers united against this federally run program. You will find that 26 out of the 46 states that originally accepted Common Core are not happy with it. And although Jaruegui calls my comments misinformation, they were gleaned from actual experiences of parents and teachers. In the words of a parent about “Dreaming in Cuban,” “this book was recommended by Common Core Curriculum.” The following excerpt is taken from page 80: “Hugo and Felicia stripped in their room, dissolving easily into one another, and made love against the whitewashed walls.” (Editor’s note: The rest of the passage submitted is not being reprinted in the Sentinel because of its graphic nature.) It was too late for parents to complain about a book once it is read. The damage was done and the students were exposed to one of the many questionable books that Common Core suggests. Shouldn’t parents have a reasonable expectation that the books chosen by the teacher are not pornography? So, where did Common Core come from? Why the rush to implement? As hard as it is to decline federal dollars for schools,

Guest Commentary

The Story of the 4-Tiered Winery Ordinance Editor’s note: This is Part 2 of a commentary that, due to length, is published in two parts. Part 1 was in last week’s Sentinel. By S. ELAINE LYTTLETON By now the little band of people who had wrought the wonderful changes in the valley had grown from just a few in 2006 to over 95 in 2013. They came together again to right the wrongs that were threatening them, and to try to reason with the king — uh, county. They begged to be included in talks with the king’s men in charge, to find out why this was happening, but the drawbridge was up and locked tight. At last, one day in January 2014 the drawbridge was lowered and the peasants — uh, farmers, were allowed entrance to hear

what the king — uh, county meant to do to them. The wondrous ordinance was not to be changed, they were assured. It was just to have little holes plugged and cracks patched which were allowing the farmers to make some money much faster than the king — uh, county had ever anticipated. Instead of having a tasting room on their farm “by right” as the ordinance said, and which many of the poor uneducated farmers thought meant they could open their wineries to visitors in the small hovels they already had on their property, they were told they had to build castles just like the king’s – uh county’s to operate their farm winery operations. They had to keep very elaborate records, in addition to the ones they

H1N1 flu virus contributes to popular pastor’s death By JESSICA KING Family and friends will gather at Mountain View Community Church this weekend to celebrate the life of Senior Pastor Charles Youngkin. Known as Charlie, the vibrant 60-year-old’s sudden death Feb. 12 is being attributed, in part, to the H1N1 flu virus. “He was just an amazing, amazing man … passionate and intentional,” said Youngkin’s wife of 36 years, Elaine. An avid golf and tennis player who exercised every day and loved to play the guitar and sing, Youngkin experienced a dramatic downturn in his health

earlier this month. He preached on a Sunday and began presenting flu-like symptoms later that evening. The next day, Elaine took him to a doctor, who immediately sent Youngkin to the hospital. He was released three days later only to be readmitted the following Monday. He never returned home after that. Youngkin’s immune system was compromised by chronic lucidic leukemia, a condition he was diagnosed with during a routine blood test about five years ago, though he presented no symptoms. His recent bout with the flu rapidly turned into acute pneumonia, which ulti-

County reports 35 flu-related deaths so far this season On Feb. 12, San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency reported that 35 people in the county had died so far this season of flu-related causes. They ranged in age from 26 to 92 and most had underlying medical conditions, according to the county report. While the number of cases of the flu have dropped the past two weeks, county health officials said the flu season typically lasts through March and early April, so people should continue taking preventive measures.

500 people flocked to the church for a remembrance gathering, where Youngkin’s humor and energy were talked about more than anything else, said Clarke. “Pastor Charlie would tell you that he was just about a couple of things,” said Clarke. “One of those being to be a servant of Christ and the other one being to help men and women be disciples of Christ.” But, said Clarke, Youngkin was also about one of the most energetic and fun-loving people you could ever meet. Youngkin came to Mountain View five-and-a-half years ago from a church in Carlsbad. Among the programs at Mountain View that he was most passionate about was the men’s ministry. “He focused on helping men to be better husbands, better fathers and better members of society,” said Clarke. “That was really important to him.” Born on July 1, 1953, in Upper Darby, Penn., Youngkin found his faith at

I am hopeful that Ramona parents and teachers, after reading the articles on the web, will reject this money once and for all. And here is where the politics come into play. Consider this comment from a panelist at a Common Core meeting held by John Podesta this month at the Center for American Progress (CAP). In addressing criticism of the Common Core national education standards, a panelist at the CAP, a liberal think tank, said critics were a “tiny minority” who opposed standards altogether, which was unfair because “the children belong to all of us.” See more at: cnsnews.com/news/ article/penny-starr/panelist-podestathink-tank-common-core-childrenbelong-all-us#sthash.8GtwUnRy. dpuf Now go back to the 1990s and read about a businessman, Joe Esposito, who found that our education system was lining up to standards set by several national bodies (Joe Esposito’s report “Tangled Web: The Mastery Learning OBE/STW-TQM Connection sheds a good bit of light on the Common Core movement to nationalize public education). Esposito opposed efforts to prepare American children for the global marketplace by subsuming local

educations systems into a single entity with the country’s workforce. STW, or school to workforce, training is preschool to higher education in compliance with United Nations lifelong learning programs. Specifically, this is lifelong indoctrination for servitude, an important part of world class standards. Targeting all schools — public and private — STW reforms link all levels to what was a vehicle for education and learning. Once implemented, all schools will be vocational (thus the focus on reading technical writing versus classics), all children will have a career path no later than seventh grade, and all children/adults will be credentialed through a national/international job certification program. With pockets of success around the USA, there needed to be a more comprehensive vehicle to execute the global plans. Enter Common Core. Common Core was written by members of the CCSSO (Council of Chief State School Officers), the NGA (National Governor Association) and a chief education policy group part of the NGA. These groups were joined by members of the Obama administration and a group called Achieve, the teacher labor

unions (FTA, NEA and ACT) and the College Board. The money and influence behind this come from, in part, the Gates Foundation and Pearson Foundation. They formed a partnership to produce online curriculum for the Common Core Standards. They also provide training to go along with the curriculum. This group has been buying up cheap schools in developing countries in partnership with governments and they run the schools using the Pearson’s eBook, Gates computers and government funding. They do the same in the USA with charter schools. Jeb Bush and his Foundation for Excellence in Education, Bill Gates, Pearson and IBM’s ex CEO Gerstner reportedly have called on our government to bring down all 16,000 public school districts. They want to privatize all education in order to implement the Soviet polytechnical workforce training system called for by Carnegie in 1934. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is also on board. And Common Core is the vehicle. And this isn’t political? Diane Chapman is a Ramona resident.

the tender age of 19 while in the Air Force. In his selfpenned biography posted on Mountain View’s website, Youngkin described how he was both drawn and driven to Christ out of a fear of dying and an emptiness in his life that he could not fill with anyone or anything he found in this world. Youngkin’s then-fear of death stemmed from the passing of his father when Youngkin was only 10 years old. He had big questions about life and death that little boys are not suppose to have to think about and they followed him until a pastor in North Carolina introduced him to Christ as a young man, recalled Elaine. “He found purpose and meaning and it never waned one bit,” she said. “He used to always say you’re not prepared to live unless you’re prepared to die, and he was.” Youngkin worked as a crew chief on F-4 aircraft while in the Air Force before earning a bachelor’s degree in biblical studies and a Masters of Divinity degree. At the time of his death, he was working to-

ward a doctorate in seminary. Before coming to Mountain View, Youngkin was a founding pastor at Morgan Hill Bible Church in northern California, where he served for 21 years before moving on to Carlsbad Community Church for four years and then Mountain View in July 2008. Youngkin was preceded in death by his parents, Charles Youngkin and Mary Quinn Youngkin. In addition to his wife, Youngkin is survived by three sons and daughtersin-law: Joshua and Annette Youngkin of Seattle, Wash.; Ben and Caitie Youngkin of Arroyo Grande; and C.J. and Summer Youngkin of Lee’s Summit, Mo. Eight grandchildren and four siblings, Paul, Christopher, Joe and Kathleen, also survive Youngkin. A memorial service will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday at Mountain View Community Church, 1191 Meadowlark Way. Flowers will be accepted, along with monetary donations in Youngkin’s honor to the church’s compassion fund. Youngkin will be buried at Miramar National Cemetery.

Regional agency declares Level 1 Drought Watch, seeks voluntary conservation San Diego County Water Authority directors voted unanimously to call for stepped-up conservation measures in the face of California’s drought. The board, at a special meeting Feb. 13, declared a Level 1 Drought Watch and activated the agency’s Water Shortage and Drought Response Plan to preserve water reserves in case dry conditions continue into next year. The agency will inform its 24 member agencies of voluntary guidelines such as washing paved surfaces only when necessary for health and safety,

eliminating inefficient landscape irrigation such as runoff and overspray, irrigating only before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m., and serving and refilling water at restaurants only on request. In coming weeks, member agencies will consider what specific actions are necessary for their communities. Ramona Municipal Water District is among the member agencies but will not be taking any action because customers already have reduced water use by nearly 50 percent since 2007, said David Barnum, manager of the Ramona district.

No changes at Rite Aid The property that Rite Aid pharmacy leases at 1670 Main St. in the Stater Bros. shopping center has been sold to a new owner but store operations will continue, according to Rite Aid.

A news source reported that the store had been sold, but only the landlord has changed, said the company. “Nothing has changed to our business,” said a Rite Aid spokesperson.

East Coast snowstorm prompts unique Sabbath service here The snowstorm on the East Coast last week had an impact on Congregation Etz Chaim in Ramona. Rabbi Leslie Bergson who was snowed in, in New Jersey, was unable to return to San Diego. But that didn’t stop her from leading the service in Ramona. She led a virtual Sabbath service via FaceTime, with

the congregation members in the Rotunda of San Diego Country Estates responding as she sang and chanted. It was a first for everyone Afterward, refreshments in the form of a home-baked chocolate chip challah and other sweets were served. For more information about the congregation call 760-7892781.

Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency across the state recently, but San Diegoarea officials say there will be enough water this year, thanks to greater storage capacity and increased diversification of sources. But if weather conditions remain dry, 2015 could be a different story, they said. “The extraordinarily dry conditions and water supply challenges facing our state mean it’s time for each of us to go above and beyond our normal watersaving measures,” said Thomas Wornham, chairman of the wa-

Enrollment

ence its 12th year of declining enrollment. Assistant Superintendent David Ostermann’s report to trustees on Feb. 13 shows a projected enrollment of 5,598 students next school year. That’s 132 fewer than the 5,730 students in classrooms this school year. Enrollment is the district’s key to finances, since it makes up the majority of revenue, said Ostermann. It also determines staffing levels. While he was unable to provide the amount the district receives per student from all sources, Ostermann said 132 fewer students represent a loss of approximately $750,000 to

ter authority board. “For some people, that will mean simply adjusting their irrigation system to eliminate runoff and overspray. For others, it could mean investing in a water-smart landscape makeover or buying a highly efficient clothes washer. If everyone answers the call, we can stretch our region’s supplies and do our part to help the rest of the state.” The water authority is collaborating with its 24 member agencies to increase regional awareness of the need for additional water conservation. The water

authority plans to fund outreach efforts using part of a $1 million state Drought Response and Outreach Program grant. According to the San Diego agency, per capita potable water use in the region has decreased about 27 percent since 2007, and residents and water districts are on pace to meet their state-mandated water-efficiency targets for 2020. Total regional consumption of potable water in fiscal year 2013 was 24 percent lower than in fiscal year 2007. The county imports 85 percent of its water supply.

the district. “The exact dollar figure is harder to define due to the (state’s) new funding formula,” he explained. Commenting that “we’ve got to find something positive,” Ostermann said one positive note is that last February the district projected a loss of 153 students this school year, but it was 130. “Right now, we’re looking at 132, so maybe the decline is slowly lessening,” he said. In 2001-02, the district had a high of 7,271 students. A projection of 5,598 students in 2014-15 is a drop of 1,673, “more than in the high school now,” said Ostermann. The largest projected drop at the elementary level is in San Diego Country Estates, where the district projects a loss of 28 stug

dents in James Dukes Elementary and 17 in Barnett Elementary. The schools this year have enrollments of 479 and 477, respectively. The report projects an increase of five students for a total of 495 students at Mt. Woodson Elementary in 2014-15. Ramona High’s projection is 36 fewer students for a total of 1,633, compared to this year’s enrollment of 1,669. District administrators confer before the annual projections report. “As always, we relook at these projections in the spring and in the summer,” said Ostermann. “That’s when we work with the principals even more.” The district’s human resources department works on different possible scenarios based on the projections, but “we don’t make

any decisions until the whites of their eyes actually show up for school,” Ostermann said. Because of how school funding works, the decline will not affect district revenue in the 2014-15 year, but it will for 2015-16, noted Ostermann. “It seems to me like from this day forward we should look at reducing expenses and building up a little reserve, a better reserve, so when we get there in ‘16, we won’t have a (fiscal) bloodbath,” said trustee John Rajcic, calling the Proposition 30 temporary tax increase voters approved in 2012 a BandAid.

rector of education services, told trustees last Thursday. The survey in English and Spanish is on the district website, ramonausd.net, under “District Headlines.” It also is on each school’s home page on the web. The survey addresses eight priorities that the state wants districts to address, said Grace. Also required is focus on specific groups of students: English learners, low-income and foster youth. According to Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) requirements in the state budget act, the accountability plan precedes adoption of a district budget in June and the budget must be consistent with the plan. “At the heart of the new LCFF are two concepts — a basic philosophy that the local school board would have more authority on how district funds would be expended combined with funding specifically allocated based on the number of special needs students,” Superintendent Robert Graeff said in a report to trustees

in November. "Any member in the community, we welcome your participation in filling out the survey," Graeff said. "It's a key piece to developing where we go next in implementing these eight priority areas." Grace presented trustees an accountability plan timeline, saying “over the next few months till our June board meeting we have a lot of activities in place to develop our LCAP plan.” Students, parents, district employees and community members may complete the survey. “The survey’s been up for about five days and we’ve already had 300 hits,” said Grace. “What if someone submits the survey, the same person, four or five times ... do you have a way to control that?” asked trustee John Rajcic. “No, they could do that,” she said, but “we’d rather you go just once.” For more information about the survey, contact Grace’s office at 760-787-2012.

Back Country Quilters donation helps Ramona High Tom’s Club Back Country Quilters’ 14th Annual Quilt Show was more than beautiful and fun to put on, said member Dot Koerner. “It was a successful fundraiser as well,” said Koerner. “The profit was $4,800. The funds, after

expenses, were dispersed between the Ramona Senior Center and Tom’s Club at Ramona High School.” Tom’s Club, which benefits Ramona High students with disabilities, was organized in honor

of the late Tom Bottomley, a former student who teacher Dan Marshall describes as “a lovable and generous young man.” Tom died shortly after completing his program at the school, noted Marshall.

The 2012 bond bid failed by less than 4.5 percent of the required 55 percent yes vote. With Isom Advisors, total cost to the district’s general fund is about $8,500, said Graeff. Campaign donations will pay campaign consulting fees of $12,500, and, if voters approve the bond, bond proceeds will pay the $35,000 pre-election planning fee and the $75,000 per bond sale fee, states information Isom Advisors provided the district. “This is long overdue

that this community gets a school bond for its public schools,” said Graeff. Stoody said he didn’t believe Isom Advisors supported the district’s 2012 bond campaign committee. “They were kind of ready to hand the monkey and put it back on our back rather than take it on their back,” he said. “I’m very comfortable with this, very comfortable with this,” said trustee Kim Lasley, one of six district representatives on the in-

terview committee that recommended Urban Futures at the school board meeting on Feb. 13. Stoody also expressed disappointment that the consultant didn’t pursue “a simple idea that Mr. Rajcic had on making sure that mail-in ballots (were collected). That simple change right there, which I would have expected an adviser to give us, could have turned the coin right there.” Stoody’s reference was to a recommendation trustee John Rajcic made before and after his election to the board in 2012.

"They want to work with us to revise an informational campaign where we make the COP a centerpiece instead of a side piece in the campaign," said Graeff, referring to a $25 million loan, called a certificate of participation, that a previous board approved.

Whittaker desert camp experience — well worth the drive

T

he basic information I’ve written about Anza-Borrego State Park may have peaked your interest in visiting the desert with your horse — and now is the time. I want to give you more details about the camps that provide an amazing experience in the desert. Vern Whittaker Horse Camp is one of my favorite places to camp with Cricket. Some of the best trails are in the area of this camp, and the smaller camp experience lends to a very quiet atmosphere. The camp host often has evening campfires filled with history lessons and ghost tales — and at times movies are shown. You can also keep to yourself

and enjoy the serenity that is camping in the desert if you so choose. The camp has corrals, restrooms and coin-operated showers for those of us with very basic accommodations. Horse camp corrals are generally 10 feet by 10 feet and may seem too small upon your first visit, but they do just fine for most horses. Trails start in camp and head out in every direction. This part of AnzaBorrego State Park is one of my favorites. The camp is nice, clean, quiet and with all the amenities of home — well, almost. It’s off the beaten path but the trails run along and across jeep trails, so there are most often people ev-

erywhere and you’d barely even know it. Oh, you may run across kids playing in the ponds and occasionally see a Jeep out for a ride, but mostly it’s just you and your pony pal with the friends you’re camping and riding with for the weekend enjoying some beautiful scenery and wonderful trails. The trails out here range from deep sand — which is tough on your equine’s legs — to old ranch or fire roads and newer Jeep trails that are compacted as hard as concrete. One of the greatest things about this area is that you can ride for an hour or go all day, camp out in the rough and ride back to camp the next day. Most likely, though, you’ll ride for four to six hours and head back to camp for a nice relaxing dinner with friends. I can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend. Water is most likely running through the creek at this time of year and may be a trickle that you barely notice or a river your

One of the greatest things about this area is that you can ride for an hour or go all day, camp out in the rough and ride back to camp the next day. horse must swim through, depending on when you visit. Be prepared for anything and everything on these trails when it comes to weather, rain, wind — oh boy, the wind can blow — temperature variations that may bake or freeze you — and it’s some of the best riding you’ll ever do. Nighttime gets really cold most of the time. Have everything you need for your horse with you, and even if you don’t use her blanket on her during your trip, you may need it for yourself at night. Been there, done that. Water bucket, feed bucket, hose, hay, pellets,

grooming gear, manure rake, cooler, horse sweater, horse blanket, pliers (in case cactus barbs jump on to the legs of your horse) and clips for the corral chains if your horse is an escape artist as mine is are all must-haves when camping in the desert. There are water spigots to use to water your horse, but you need your own hose and I’d recommend a 75-foot hose or two. I always take an extra halter and lead rope, just in case I need it, or someone else does, and use it for more “gate” across the corral opening when Cricket is in the corral. The two chains that make the existing corral gate are tempting for

some horses to challenge and escape. Vern Whittaker is a California State Park-run camp. You can check out www.reserveamerica.com and look up Anza-Borrego State Park to see the camp layout, location, trail map and to make reservations. Remember that state parks raised all fees, so check it out before you haul all the way out to any state park. From Ramona the camp is about 90 minutes away and down a very winding S22 or you can go the long way down S2. Both are off Highway 79 from Santa Ysabel. Check all of your brakes before you head out on your truck and trailer. This camp experience is well worth the drive. Karen Carlson, a Ramona resident, is past president of Ramona Trails Association and a trails advocate active with many agencies, organizations, and committees.

Where are they now?

RHS grad travels the world, teaches yoga, delivers aid Editor’s Note: This is one in the Sentinel’s “Where Are They Now?” series about Ramona graduates — where they are and what they are doing. By KAREN BRAINARD She calls herself the “traveling yoginista” and among her many adventures was delivering aid to typhoon victims in the Philippines. Desiree Crossman, a 2000 Ramona High School graduate, didn’t have to travel far to deliver the aid last November — it took about a 4 1/2-hour boat ride to take food and building supplies to the residents of the isolated village of DapDap on Ponson Island. “Places like DapDap would never receive the legitimate needs and supplies to rebuild after Yolanda (Typhoon Haiyan),” Crossman wrote on her blog. “It’s not even a fishing town. They have small

canoes, a bamboo raft and one municipality truck. So you have to think to yourself, who would come?” At that time, Crossman was living in Cebu City, the second largest city in the Philippines, where she was teaching yoga full time in English, a dominant language throughout much of the country. Many

students were surprised to see an American instructor with no Filipino blood or ties coming over to teach yoga, she said. “I guess I’m a little nuts but it’s what I wanted for myself — to teach in a foreign country, teach different styles, different locations, and gain experience,” explained Cross-

man. Since graduating from Ramona High, Crossman has lived in France, Austria, England, Philippines, and for just a month each in Taiwan and in China. “So far I’ve stepped foot in 41 countries and my goal is 50. I love to travel, she said.” Crossman said in 2012 she went on a two-month solo expedition “across Southeast Asia, visited Angkor Wat, Halong Bay, did yoga in different countries, slept under escalators in airports, etc...random trips for work and leisure.” Her first trip to the Philippines was in 2009 when she worked for a production company, and she found she enjoyed the country and its lifestyle. Four years later, after earning yoga certification and keeping in touch with many people, she decided to go back. The benefits of yoga, which is expanding in Cebu, are vast, noted Crossman. “Yoga by definition means to yoke and

Crossman said they picked up basic building supplies and canned goods, rice, noodles, diapers and other items, and worked with friends who were also receiving donations. When they arrived at the island villagers greeted them, grateful for the assistance. Crossman, the daughter of Trish and Mike Crossman of Ramona, came back to the states for the holidays and decided to stay for a while. She may return to the Philippines later this year. In the meantime, she is teaching at Reach Yoga studio in Pacific Beach. For a schedule of her classes, visit www.reachyoga.com.

union the body, mind and spirit, but what I’ve learned is it’s an endless definition that only you can relate to. Every style of yoga comes from Hatha style, which I explain to my students in a nutshell: It’s the mother lineage of yoga,” she said. Among the many types of yoga Crossman teaches are Hatha Flow, Power Yoga, Hydro Yoga and Vinyasa. She is also a licensed Zumba instructor and certified in Swedish and Thai massage, the latter of which she learned in Thailand. In addition, Crossman dives and paddleboards, and with four others collaborated on an event called SWAYED, an acronym for: Stand up paddle, Wakeboarding, Aqua sports, Yoga, Eco (beach cleaning and conservation), and Diving. It was the first of its kind for Cebu and was lined up for Nov. 9, 2013, — the day after Super Typhoon Yolanda was supposed to hit, so Crossman and her colleagues rescheduled SWAYED for a later date. During the day of the typhoon, Crossman and boyfriend Jeff Maher, who is also from California, spent the day in their apartment, experiencing brownouts and watching the winds blast past their windows. Cebu City was spared by about 30 miles of being in the direct path of the eye, but other areas weren’t so lucky and unable to withstand winds of up to 217 mph, she said. Wanting to help, they

Girls basketball extends winning streak to 16 By BILL TAMBURRINO Sweet 16 is a magic number in basketball and it was for the Ramona High girls as they extended their winning streak to 16 games. The Bulldog girls beat Oceanside (10-13, 4-3) and Valley Center (5-19, 2-6) to remain undefeated in Valley League action. Ramona is now 20-6 on the season and 8-0 in the Valley League. The Lady Bulldogs took a giant step toward the Valley League championship by beating Oceanside High School 68-38 in the Dawg House. The defensive-minded team took a seldom-used defensive strategy in the game. “Oceanside’s best player and best scorer is Chelse Ayala. She is going to get her points so we decided to make her work for them,” said Bulldog coach Dan Marshall. “We let her get the ball and tried to deny the rest of the team from getting into the of-

fense. We made her drive and didn’t give her an open look at the basket. Kylee (Scheib), Hannah (Farhat) and Emily (Sojourner) rotated guarding her and made her work. Whenever she got by one of them we gave them some help. As a

result we outscored them as a team.” Ramona also played team offense. Katherine Mauldin and Kailey Hill recorded double doubles. Mauldin scored 18 points and grabbed 14 boards with 10 under the offensive bucket. Hill scored 14 points and hauled in 12 boards with three assists, three steals and two blocked shots. Chiara Mattern hit three from beyond the arc on her way to 15 points. Scheib (8), Christina Barrameda (6), Farhat (5) and Lauren Werhanowicz (2) also scored in the league win. Ramona beat Valley Center 73-42. The Lady Dawgs scored the first 13 points and Marshall substituted liberally throughout the game. Every member of the team played and scored. Again, defense was the key to the victory. When asked about the level of competition after the game, posing the question, “Is the Valley League that

bad?” Marshall responded, “No, we are that good. Every member of our team could start on every other team in the league. I could start any player on our team and not miss a beat. We have played a tough schedule and every girl has played in games that were on the line. When I missed games, coach (Ken) Scheib stepped in and we won big games. His presence adds to the culture of our team. We do it with the fundamentals: defense,

rebounding and unselfish team play.” Barrameda led all scorers despite seeing limited action. The senior point guard played well on both ends of the court as she scored 22 points, grabbed five rebounds and had four steals. She was torrid from beyond the arc as she hit four of four on 3-point shots. Mauldin and Kylee Scheib also scored in double figures, each posting 10 points. Mauldin led the

team with nine rebounds. Mattern scored 7 points, dished off four assists and had three steals. Werhanowicz (8), Farhat (2), Sojourner (3) and Molly McLeod (4) also scored in the win. The Lady Bulldogs will play for the outright Valley League title on Friday at 5:30 p.m., which will be Senior Night. The ceremony honoring seniors Ashlyn Savage, Barrameda and Hill will start at 5:15 p.m.

Bulldog boys go into triple overtime to beat Oceanside By BILL TAMBURRINO The Bulldog boys basketball team ensured the first winning record in regular season play for coach David Reichner by beating Oceanside (10-15, 4-4) and Valley Center (6-18, 0-8) in home games. The two wins also put

the Dawgs in the running for a home game in the upcoming CIF Division III playoffs. The Dawgs are 13-10 overall and 5-3 in the Valley League. Ramona High beat Oceanside High School in a triple overtime thriller, 93-85. It was the first victory over Oceanside since

the 2009-2010 season when Ken Scheib’s Dawgs swept Oceanside in Valley League action. “One of the most exciting, thrilling and historical events at RHS,” stated Reichner on the team’s website. “Several fans and See OVERTIME on page 30

It is said that, in 1941 the Ford motor company produced an experimental automobile with a plastic body composed of 70% cellulose fibers from hemp. The car body could absorb blows 10 times as great as steel without denting. The car was designed to run on hemp fuel. Because of the ban on both hemp and alcohol, the car was never mass produced.

You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call, (714)730-2727 for information regarding the trustee`s sale or visit this Internet Web site, https://www. lpsasap.com/, for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case, T.S.# 9434-1788.

The petition for Probate requests that RALPH MITTMAN be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: MAR 18, 2014 Time: 11:00 AM Dept.: PC-1. Address of court: same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.

If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

After qualifying for the semifinals, he posted a score of 54.00 in the first run, enough for fourth overall at that stage with the top six advancing to the final, but he couldn’t improve on his score in the second run and finished ninth out of 12 competitors, posted the Olympic Council of Ireland on its website. “Well done Seamus, you did us proud,” stated Team Ireland on its Facebook page. “This is my first Olympics and I’m 16. I guess I should just be happy that I was able to do it fairly well,” he was quoted on the Olympic Council’s site. “At the same time, I’m really quite upset that I’m not joining my friends in the final.”

Overall, Seamus finished 15th in the halfpipe, and 17th in the slopestyle event where he was the youngest entrant. During the slopestyle semifinals he landed his triple cork, which was only the third time he attempted it, having tried it during the qualifications round. “I’m so excited I can’t even talk. It’s amazing,” he said on a video after the run. Seamus is the son of Kevin O’Connor, who owns a rehabilitation center in Ramona for braininjured adults. He was eligible to participate on Team Ireland because his paternal grandparents hail from Dublin and Drogheda. His mother is from an area of Russia near Sochi. “I hope that the Irish will look kindly on his efforts,” Kevin O’Connor said in an email to the Sentinel. The O’Connors live in Point Loma.

Emergency crews respond to the scene of a one-vehicle accident in which a minivan drove through a chain-link fence and onto the yard of the Ramona Municipal Water District sewer treatment plant on San Vicente Road about one mile east of Wildcat Canyon Road just before 5 p.m. Feb. 14. Neither of the two teenage occupants of the van required transport to a hospital, reported Cal Fire Capt. Robert Ramirez with the Ramona Fire Department. The van was westbound when it appears the driver overcorrected coming out of a turn, veered to the right, and the vehicle went through the fence, noted Ramirez.

RHS to face some new opponents after conference re-leagues

T

he North County Conference will re-league for next year and Ramona will be in the Valley League in every sport but football. The Valley League from 2014 to 2016 will be comprised of these members: Ramona, Orange Glen, Fallbrook, Valley Center, San Pasqual and Escondido. Not a bad fit for the Bulldogs in many ways. Travel will be easy as far as Orange Glen, San Pasqual and Escondido are concerned. Fallbrook is a trip, as is Valley Center. Both beat rides to the coast where Ramona has been in leagues with Oceanside, El Camino, Torrey Pines, La Costa Canyon and San Dieguito.

As far as competition goes, Ramona should be able to compete with all of the teams in all of the sports. There are no givens like Poway in wrestling, and Torrey Pines in tennis and golf. It is a lot more fair and better than when Ramona had to compete in the Palomar League in all sports. The re-leaguing is for two years. Gone from the Valley League are Del Norte and Oceanside. Del Norte was the only Poway Unified school not in the Palomar League. Football has become a victim of its own success. Ramona would have liked to be in the Valley League in all sports but the team has enjoyed too much success and our fans travel too well. The new look to the Palomar League in football is Mt. Carmel, Westview, Poway, Rancho Bernardo and Ramona. Torrey Pines has been replaced by Mt. Carmel. Oceanside is dropped from our schedule as a rivalry game. Oceanside has a 25-1-1 record over Ramona in football so, after much consideration, the powers that be finally realized it is really not a rivalry game after all. It is not an easy trip for either team. So our rivalry game is now Carlsbad. Again not an easy trip for either team and again not much of a rivalry. The football schedule has some peculiar twists next season. The Dawgs are on the road at El Cajon Valley, Helix, Poway, Rancho Bernardo and Point Loma. The Point Loma game will be on a Saturday at 3 p.m. with a

JV game at 12:30 p.m. The Rancho Bernardo game will be on Thursday, Oct. 30, so neither team will miss out on trick-or-treating on Halloween. Halloween is a bad gate day. Ramona played Valley Center on a Halloween and the crowd was below average. The Dawgs will host Grossmont, Escondido, Mt. Carmel and Carlsbad. The Carlsbad game is the last game of the season, after league play is finished. The schedule can be viewed by going to www.ramonahighschoolfootball.com. ime to fill the gym! It is time to get to know the Bulldog boys basketball team. Wrestling and St. Katherine have had more games and matches in the Dawg House than the Bulldog hoopsters. Coach David Reichner’s Roundballers have only had three home games. In Valley League basketball action the varsity teams play doubleheaders: the girls at 5:30 p.m. and the boys at 7 p.m. With the Lady Dawgs in a battle to defend their Valley League title and the Bulldog basketball team fighting for a good seed in the Division III playoffs and a possible shot at the Valley League title, attending a doubleheader is not a hard sell. Crowds have been down the last couple of seasons. The student section has shriveled. With both teams holding a winning record going into league, the crowds should improve.

Bulldog boys lose games to Pirates, Jaguars Girls soccer falls short

in two league matches

By JOE NAIMAN Ramona High School’s boys soccer team lost Valley League home games Feb. 12 against Oceanside and Feb. 14 against Valley Center. “It was representative of our season,” said coach Michael Jordan. The first half against Oceanside, which was ranked 12th in San Diego County, wasn’t indicative of the Bulldogs’ season struggles. The first 40 minutes of play ended with a 2-1 Ramona lead, which matched the total number of goals the Bulldogs had scored in the 12 halves of their first six league games. The Pirates scored the game’s first goal. “We didn’t change what we were doing. We kept with our game plan,” Jordan said. That paid off with the two Ramona goals. Brandon Duarte tied the game after following up on a Brandon Chavez shot. When a ball out of bounds gave Ramona a throw-in, Jordan utilized the throw-in skills of Tanarat Crowe while encouraging Charles Montana to get a running start on redirecting the ball. That play resulted in Montana heading the ball into the net for Ramona’s first lead since league play began. “I tried to protect a 2-1 lead, played more defense,” Jordan said. The defensive orientation allowed the Pirates to have possession of the ball in the penalty box, and a Ramona foul led to a penalty kick which tied the game. With 30 seconds remaining, Oceanside scored the winning goal from a long throw-in. “It was a heartbreaking loss,” said Jordan. Valley Center took four shots in the Jaguars’ 2-0 win over Ramona while the Bulldogs had 15 shots on goal. “Their goalkeeper made some really nice saves,” Jordan said. “We played great. First 15 minutes created multiple

opportunities and just couldn’t score,” he added. “It was tough.” The losses left Ramona with a league record of 0-4-4 and an overall mark of 5-9-8. The Bulldogs close out their regular season at home against Del Norte on Friday. The match will be preceded by Senior Night ceremonies. Saturday’s CIF playoff seeding and selection meeting will determine whether Ramona will have Division I post-season games. Jordan notes the importance of the regular season in the selection committee’s decision. “We’re going to look forward to playing one half of soccer and go from there 40 minutes at a time,” said the coach.

Ramona High School’s girls soccer team lost its Feb. 12 game at Oceanside and Feb. 14 contest at Valley Center by the same margins as in the first round of Valley League play. Oceanside’s 4-1 victory was an identical score to that of the Jan. 24 match in Ramona, and in both games between the Bulldogs and Pirates all five goals were scored during the first half. Valley Center triumphed by a score of 2-1 Jan. 29 and Feb. 14. In the rematch between Ramona and Oceanside the Pirates held a 3-0 lead after scoring two goals on penalty kicks. Ramona missed a penalty kick prior to junior Karli Njaa placing a shot into the net to register the Bulldogs on the scoreboard. “The two penalty kicks that they made and the one we missed killed us,” said assistant coach Deena Vizcarra. “Ramona played a lot more aggressive in the second half. We just couldn’t get the scoring opportunity that we needed,” said the coach. The game at Valley Center was scoreless until late in the second half. The Jaguars began the game’s scoring by capitalizing on a corner kick. Ramona junior Noami Ramirez tied the game temporarily. The Bulldogs threatened to take the lead, but the Jaguars obtained what turned out to be the winning goal. The losses left Ramona with a 3-5 Valley League record and an overall 6-8-2 figure. Ramona’s final regularseason game will take place Friday at Del Norte High School. Saturday’s CIF playoff selection and seeding meeting will determine whether the Bulldogs continue their 2013-14 season. “I think we’re going to be in there from all the numbers I’ve seen so far,” Vizcarra said.

parents have been calling and emailing in support of the spectacular effort." Ramona started out with an 18-2 run. Oceanside gradually battled back into the contest and tied the score at 70 in regulation with just enough time on the clock for one Bulldog final shot. Scott Stransky took that shot and, in the words of Reichner, “His 3-point shot just rimmed out causing the first overtime.” Stransky again had the ball in his hands at the end of the first overtime. With under five seconds left to play, the senior guard drove the floor and got off a 3-point shot. It missed but Stransky was fouled and went to the line shooting three with the Dawgs trailing by 2 points. Stransky missed the first free throw and sunk the second. Oceanside’s coach called time-out to ice Stransky. The ploy didn’t work as Stransky tied the score, sending the teams into the second overtime. With the Dawgs trailing by 3 at the end of the second overtime, Stransky hit

a 3-point goal, sending the teams into the third overtime. Stransky had his best night as a Bulldog. He scored 26 points, grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds, had two steals and two assists and a blocked shot. Blake Seits lit up the nets as he hit six 3-point shots on his way to a careerhigh 23 points. Seits also had four steals to lead the team in that category, and he blocked two shots. Marco Cobian scored 20 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. Colton Harris (8), Riley Hubbard (5), Christian Dominguez (4), Calvin Harris (3), Tanner “T-Bone” Williams (2) and Austin Pierce (2) also scored. Ramona beat Valley Center by taking charge in the opening minute and led the Jaguars the entire game in a 78-69 win. Cobian led the Dawgs in scoring and rebounding as he scored 23 points and grabbed eight boards. Stransky scored 19 points and led the team with seven assists. Seits continued to burn the nets

Williams said. The deficit was narrowed to 4-3 at the end of the first half by vanTol. Bernd scored in the third quarter to create a 4-4 tie. Rancho Bernardo took a 5-4 lead 20 seconds after Bernd’s goal, closed thirdperiod scoring with a power play goal, and took a 7-4 lead with a goal midway in the fourth quarter. Ramona had the next two scores to narrow the margin to 7-6, but a lob shot from 12 meters away gave the Broncos an 8-6 advantage. Smith scored the game’s final goal, but the Bulldogs were unable to erase their final deficit. “Losing to RB was tough,” said Williams. Ramona missed 28 shots in the game against the Broncos. “There was no shortage of opportunities,” he said. On Feb. 15 the Bulldogs traveled to the University of California, San Diego pool for a game against Torrey Pines. The Falcons had a 1-0 lead before Bernas tied the game with 40 seconds left in the first

period. Bernas scored again in the second quarter for a 2-1 Ramona lead, but a Torrey Pines power play goal tied the game. Talento’s second-quarter goal gave Ramona a 3-2 halftime lead. The Bulldogs entered the fourth period with a 6-2 cushion; Bernas scored the third quarter’s first two goals and Lloyd-Dotta closed out the period’s scoring with a successful shot on a power play. Bernd won the fourth-quarter sprint and then placed the ball into the net for a 7-2 lead. Williams called up three junior varsity players for the Torrey Pines game and the playoffs. One of those was JV goalie Kallan Campa, who made her varsity debut by replacing Wallace with four minutes remaining and the Bulldogs holding a 9-2 lead. The Bulldogs ended the game on the favorable end of the 9-6 score. Ramona finished the regular season with an 18-9 overall record. The winners of Friday night’s quarterfinal matches will advance to the Feb. 25 semifinals at Coggan Pool.
