Christmas Tree Lighting festivities Saturday The tree is up and Santa has Ramona’s Christmas Tree Lighting festivities on his schedule. Presented by Ramona Chamber of Commerce, the 24th annual event will be on Saturday from 5 to 8 p.m. Main Street will be closed between Sixth and Seventh streets, with the lighting of the tree at the Guy B. Woodward Museum, 645 Main St., scheduled for 6 p.m. The community event traditionally attracts hundreds of people. Many Main Street merchants will be open
late for shopping, and Santa will be at Ramona Town Hall, 729 Main St., for children of all ages to have their photo taken with him and to hear their Christmas wishes. He’s expected to take a break to walk down the block to the museum for the tree lighting before returning to Town Hall. Among additional festivities will be sleigh rides, carolers, dancers, singers, a car and motorcycle show, and the popular “Find the Elf” contest. Look for the Elf poster in the window of participating businesses.
The “Find the Elf” contest will begin at 3 p.m. to give participants an early start on the holiday scavenger hunt. Those entering the contest will receive a form in the first store they visit. Once they spot the elf in that shop, their form will be stamped. The goal is to find the elf in each store and have their form stamped at each shop. When they finish, contestants will be directed to bring their completed form to Ramona Family Naturals, 642 Main St., to have it entered in the contest drawing. Contestants do not need to

U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Cory Merritt, his wife, Jessica, and their 6-year-old twins, Wesley and Charlotte, launch The Special Liberty Project at Ramona's VFW Post 3783.
Veteran, spouse launch The Special Liberty Project BY KAREN BRAINARD n active duty serviceman is realizing his dream to provide a special opportunity for combat-wounded veterans. U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Cory Merritt and his wife, Jessica, launched The Special Liberty Project at Ramona’s Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3783 with a barbecue, entertainment and activities that drew about 110 people and raised $3,000. The nonprofit organization gives
combat-wounded veterans the opportunity “to drop the pack and enjoy a stress-free, fully-supported and educational hunting experience.” Cory, who is originally from Michigan and learned to hunt as a child, sees the hunting experience as one that will give veterans an opportunity to enjoy companionship while embracing the challenges and bounty of the outdoors. “After participating in multiple local SEE VETS, A27
BY MAUREEN ROBERTSON When members of Ramona Ag Boosters learned that the vendor who previously had provided trees for their annual fundraiser had production problems, they thought the Grinch was in town. An embezzlement they discovered in March had drained the nonprofit’s account and the boosters were unable to present scholarships to students in the agriculture program in June. With the threat of no Christmas trees to sell at their largest fundraiser of the year, the boosters feared for the organization’s future, said Chesni Dixon-Meske, the group’s new treasurer. But Leon Simms, grandfather of a Ramona High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) student, was in the audience when the announcement came that there would be no trees this year. That can’t be, he thought. He turned to his wife, Deborah, who works at Costco, and the germ of an idea grew into a solution. As a result, Ramona Ag Boosters will again be selling Christmas trees from the vacant lot at Fifth and Main streets beginning Friday, Dec. 2. Assisted by FFA and agriculture students, the boosters will sell Douglas firs, Noble firs and Grand firs Mondays through Fridays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. until they are gone. The 275 trees that are arriving from Oregon is the exact number the boosters have sold in the past. “Isn’t that amazing?” said Dixon-Meske. If you believe in Christmas miracles, this is one, she added. “Costco stepped up” when it learned of the situation, she SEE BOOSTERS, A2 NT RY UC TR Tacoma/Tundra

FROM BOOSTERS, A1 said, and Costco’s vendor joined the effort. Mike Osborne of Pinery Christmas Trees in Del Mar was instrumental “in bailing us out,” said Simms. As the vendor that supplies trees to Costco, Osborne connected with other Pinery customers, and they each allowed a few of their trees to go to Ramona Ag Boosters. The people in Greater San Diego came together to help Ramona, said Dixon-Meske, crediting Simms with starting everything. “He was the one who saved it,” she said, adding that parents contributed to pay the deposit on the trees. An FFA alumna from Bakersfield, Dixon-Meske joined Ramona Ag Boosters as a way to “return the favor” when three of her foster daughters were involved in the program. She describes FFA as an amazing program. The embezzlement of about $48,000 from the boosters’ account occurred between April 8, 2015, and March 15, 2016. Investigators have not yet resolved the crime, and Dixon-Meske is not sure they will, because the sheriff’s financial crimes unit and other agencies involved have larger cases to solve. In addition, the prime suspect has moved out of the area, she added. “We keep trying,” she said. “We support the investigation.” The boosters hope to raise about $5,000 from Christmas tree sales and more from their other fundraisers. Their goal is to present 10 graduating seniors with scholarships of $1,000 each in June of 2017. Ramona Ag Boosters supports the FFA and agriculture program at Ramona High School and the 4-H clubs in the community. Dixon-Meske may be contacted at 310-990-4716 for more information about the boosters. S T A T E

BY NEAL PUTNAM No charges were filed against Ramona resident Donald Aspin, 87, who was reported to be involved in a shooting in which a man was wounded at a mobile home park. Aspin was arrested Nov. 18 after sheriff’s deputies responded to a report that a man had been shot in the leg after Aspin allegedly fired several rounds through his bedroom door in the Ramona Terrace Estates mobile home park at 1212 H Street in Ramona.
“We are declining to file charges in this case,” Steve Walker, the district attorney’s communications director, said on Nov. 23. “As with any case, we can only file criminal charges when we believe we can prove them beyond a reasonable doubt.” The DA’s office normally does not discuss reasons why charges are not filed against a person following an arrest. Aspin was released Nov. 22 from the George Bailey Detention Facility. His name was not called during the arraignment calendar in El Cajon Superior Court even

Crash claims life of Ramona woman Cindy Diane Spicuzza, 54, of Ramona died in a two-vehicle collision on state Route 67 near Cloudy Moon Drive on Nov. 21. Spicuzza was sitting in the right rear passenger seat of a 2016 Hyundai SUV that was northbound on the rain-slicked highway around 1:08 p.m. when an 18-year-old woman driving too fast for the wet conditions lost control of her southbound 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer, said California Highway Patrol Public Information Officer Kevin Pearlstein. The Chevy, traveling about 60 mph, slid sideways across the pavement and crossed directly into the path of the Hyundai, reported Pearlstein. As the Chevy headed into the northbound lanes, two vehicles swerved
to avoid a collision, but the driver of the Hyundai, a 25-year-old woman, had no time to react, said officials. Responding paramedics performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on Spicuzza, who was transported to Palomar Medical Center Trauma Department where CPR was continued but to no avail and she was pronounced dead, said the medical examiner. Also in the Hyundai was a 26-year-old female passenger in the right front seat. She, as well as the two drivers, all from Ramona, were also transported to Palomar Medical Center, reported Pearlstein. Alcohol or drugs were not factors in the crash, he said.

FOR THOSE LESS FORTUNATE James Dukes Elementary School’s 84 fourth- through sixth-graders donate toys and hundreds of pounds of canned and nonperishable food to the Ramona Food & Clothes Closet for families less fortunate in the community in time for the holidays. Pictured with some of the students’ donations are, clockwise from bottom left, sixth-grade student council members Derek Nielsen, Kennedy Denny, Savannah Simpson, Arabella Cassidy, Jennifer Parker, Aaron Moe, Matthew Mallinson and Gage Wilson. The students consider it “one more lesson teaching us that it feels good to give without receiving.”
A 70-year-old Ramona man who was a fixture in the skateboarding world was killed Friday when his motorcycle collided with a car near the Santa Ysabel Indian Reservation. Victor Earhart’s death was announced by Sector 9, a San Diego-based skateboarding company, in a blog post titled “Legends Never Die.” Earhart worked at Sector 9 for 15 years and was “a great ambassador for skateboarding,” states the post. Earhart was traveling at about 55 mph on southbound state Route 79 shortly after 9 a.m., when his motorcycle struck a Toyota Prius being driven eastbound on state Route 76 by Rie Tobari-Zhou, 42, of Escondido. The motorcyclist hit the side of the Prius
as Tobari-Zhou was pulling in front of him, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Mary Bailey. An off-duty San Diego police officer happened upon the scene shortly after the collision and performed CPR on the motorcyclist until paramedics arrived, Bailey said. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene from blunt force trauma. Tobari-Zhou suffered minor abrasions to her left hand, and a 13-year-old Escondido boy, who was a passenger in her car, received minor abrasions to his left arm, but they were not hospitalized. Another passenger, a 46-year-old Escondido man,was not injured, Bailey said.

Two Corinthians and shameless hypocrisy BY DOUG SOOLEY I have read the thoughtful letter by Janine Moniot a number of times and it is filled with a sincere sentiment to offer an olive branch. I also found it naïve to believe that Trump voters voted on economic issues, or that Trump was simply using “campaign rhetoric.” It is simply illogical to believe that any conscious person would vote economic issues when the person in question has filed multiple bankruptcies and is charged with fraud and racketeering — has 4,000 lawsuits against him, 75 of which involve serious breaches of the law. No, to suggest this logic and then simultaneously pass off his behavior as “campaign rhetoric” is dangerous and puerile. Study history; demagogues do not use rhetoric casually. In the past three weeks, violence has erupted all over the United States. Hate crimes are on the rise. Since Trump’s rise to power, hate groups have risen 14% in the U.S. with a 42% rise in anti-Muslim hate groups. Right here in Ramona, students raced up and down the hallways of Ramona High School with American flags screaming “Trump Train” and yelling at Latino kids that they were “Going back to Mexico.” Other students at RHS have been called niggers. Let’s be honest; this behavior is taught in the home. Kids don’t wake up one day and suddenly become bigots and racists. They don’t learn this from “the Internet.” Economic issues? These are the same people who railed against the Federal Reserve and a policy of Quantitative Easing but suddenly get a bad case of fiscal amnesia over a 2,000-mile border wall and promises of bridges. Do you honestly believe a group of people that, for the past eight years, have questioned whether the sitting president was born in America and have called him and his family “monkeys,” “gorillas,” “apes” and “chimpanzees” voted based on economic issues? These are people who revel in being called “deplorables,” and screamed “lock her up” like banshees at the Republican National Convention this summer. No, these people did not vote based on “economic” issues. Let’s call this what it is: hate. I have not spoken to a single Trump supporter who, at the mere mention of Hillary Clinton, did not go into a mouth-foaming tirade about “I hate her so much.” This behavior is unpatriotic. To vote “against” someone by voting in someone just as bad or worse is acting on the drug of partisanship and not rational thinking. And this goes for both sides, left or right. This is the reason 42 percent of us sat this one out — we deserve better. There has been a lot of criticism of the protests going on throughout the country these past three weeks. These have been, for the most part, extremely peaceful demonstrations. There is a hypocritical amnesia about how in 2008 there were protests where people carried signs depicting the president-elect as an African medicine man and a monkey. Has anyone complained about the fact that the Ku Klux Klan is holding parades in honor of the new president-elect? The KKK? And this is 2016! SEE SOOLEY, A5
OUR READERS WRITE Will remain involved in our schools The problem with being a good sport is that one must lose to prove it. I lost the school board election, but thank those who voted for me. Many have tried to console me on the loss by saying "the ballot question said, vote for two and you were third on the list, thus more than likely the only voters that would move down the ballot to check Rajcic, that was third on the list, are those that know something about you." I feel great about life. Connie and I will remain involved in our schools. I also thank my colleagues on the board and district employees for all the courtesies extended to me. I remain a good sport regardless of the loss even though it does not appear that way at times. Win some, lose some! John Rajcic Ramona
Museum thanks Kiwanis Club The Kiwanis Club of Ramona, upon learning of the great need for additional volunteer docents to work at the Guy B. Woodward Museum, immediately came up with a plan to help fill this need. The Kiwanis Board of Directors drafted a plan whereas several Kiwanians would be trained as docents to fill vacant shifts at the museum. The plan was presented to the Ramona Pioneer Historical Society and was approved. A special docent training session was conducted by the museum operations manager, Alice Funk, in September to train Kiwanians who volunteered to serve as docents. In October and November four Kiwanians filled 19 docent shifts. These volunteer docents provided by Kiwanis made it possible for the museum to stay open on those days for which docents were otherwise not available. I would like to personally thank the Kiwanis Club, and especially
Darrell Beck, Jim Cooper, Bob Hailey, and Jeff Funk for their service to our organization. Our docents work two to three hour shifts on those days they are scheduled. During their training they become familiar with our museum and its displays, and then serve as tour guides to our many visitors. Without docents we would not be able to open the museum for tours. Kiwanis has two additional members desiring to assist us. Docent training will be scheduled for these two in the very near future. However, we will still need additional docents, especially on Saturdays and Sundays. Other local folks who desire to serve as docents would be most welcome and their training could be completed at the upcoming training session for Kiwanis. If you desire to assist us in serving the community as museum docents, call Alice Funk at 760-789-5056 and she will schedule you for this training session. Thank you, Kiwanis Club of Ramona, for your service to the Guy B. Woodward Museum and to the community of Ramona. You guys and girls rock. Judy Nachazel, President Ramona Pioneer Historical Society

FREE TURKEYS, HAMS FOR THANKSGIVING
Matthew Koeberlein, right, an In His Steps Christian Homes representative, accepts a free turkey from Nikolas Kattoula as Nikolas’ younger brother, Blake, also helps with the free turkey and ham distribution at Country Wine & Spirits on Nov. 22. Country Wine & Spirits gave 480 free turkeys and hams to those in need, including four turkeys and two hams to In His Steps, a Christian-based drug and alcohol abstinence program. The store works with churches and other organizations to identify recipients and then hands out certificates for the distribution. The Kattoula brothers are the sons of Shawn Kattoula, owner of Country Wine & Spirits. FROM SOOLEY, A4 Trump received two newspapers’ endorsements in the country and one of them was from the “Crusader,” the official newspaper of Ku Klux Klan. Sixty-eight major newspapers across the country did not endorse ANY candidate. Not one single conservative publication in the United States endorsed him — not one. He has already brought in White Nationalists and anti-Semitics to his “team.” He has brought in a man who claims that “grabbing a woman’s genitals does not constitute sexual assault.” Let’s not play games about what is going on here. We need to be vigilant and deeply honest about exactly what is occurring. Honestly, forget the fact that this person gloated about having sex with married women, gloated about his celebrity status giving him the right to grab a woman’s body, gloated about being a sexual predator, is charged with raping a 13-year-old, who called women fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals and suggested that one of the debate moderators was menstruating. Forget that the person represents the despicable, name-calling school-yard bully that, just a few years ago, the entire country was collectively denouncing. Or that he called Mexicans rapists, or said a military veteran was not a hero because he was “captured,” or that he mocked a disabled reporter, or called for a ban on an entire religion, or that he talked about the size of his penis on national TV, or that he incited violence at his rallies, or that he offered to pay people’s legal fees if they inflicted harm on protestors, or that he praised dictators like Saddam Hussein, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un, or that he Tweets disgusting, vile and childish comments like a 12-ear-old Twitter troll, or that he retweets White Nationalists and anti-Semitics, or threatens to prosecute journalists, or threatens to jail his political
opponents, or threatens to jail women who have filed lawsuits against him for (allegedly) sexually abusing them, or repeats tabloid conspiracy theories, or called for an adversarial foreign government to commit espionage against the United States. Yeah, just “forget” all of that. It was just “campaign rhetoric.” The 2016 election was a referendum on simple human decency, and America failed the test. The fact that 88% of so-called “Christians” and Evangelicals voted for a man who has, repeatedly, acted like the most un-Christian man on the planet exposes their shameless hypocrisy. They seriously need go back and read “Two Corinthians.” These people need to do some soul-searching. The mental gymnastics and, more critically, the “moral gymnastics” these people have to do to justify their behavior is something I just cannot fathom. For the first time in her 86 years on this planet, my mother did not cast a vote for president this cycle. Sadly, she lived long enough to see a man run for POTUS who screamed an obscenity at the top of his lungs in front of children. She, along with 42 percent of the country, found neither candidate suitable for the office. If you take that 42 percent, and add the 27 percent that went to the winner of the popular vote, a full 69 percent of the country did not vote for Trump. He received less than 26 percent of the vote. That means one out of four of us were seriously disgusted with him. There is no plurality here, no referendum, no mandate. It is comforting to know that three quarters of the U.S. population rejected this man. The mantle goes to the 74% of us to hold these people accountable, not the other way around. History has not been kind to countries that democratically elected demagogues. Be vigilant. Doug Sooley is a Ramona resident and a registered Independent.

ne thing I am proud of is having not succumbed to the pressure to upgrade to a smartphone, remaining a loyal flip phone owner. In fact both my wife and I have flip phones and we are quite happy with the fact that we have unlimited text and more talking minutes than we can use for about $40 a month. With all hoopla regarding the new iPhone 7 costing $700 to $900 plus monthly service fees easily in excess of $100, our savings are significant. Recently I had to replace my flip phone and the provider offered me one for $7 per month with a new two-year contract. Instead I was able to purchase a “looks like new” duplicate for $20 online, and the carrier registered it and moved my address book for nothing, no contract change. We fight to avoid creating new contracts with providers, because frequently hidden in there is a clause allowing them to raise the rates for any reason. Without a contract we are able to negotiate, always holding the “I’ll switch to another provider” card. Another cool thing about having flip phones is that we can spray them green. When I was working, the many engineers would frequently discuss the pros and cons of their smartphones, one-upmanship for sure. One day I proudly announced to a group showing off their smartphones that I had a “green” phone. When their mouths fell
open in awe, I whipped out my green painted flip phone, proving once again that technicians are smarter than engineers! In a previous column I wrote that I was worried that my wife might be trying to do me in with fermented foods that start wit a K. Kombucha is one of those that are now on our table regularly and I find that I must recant that worry. Kombucha is created by adding SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast) to a tea and sugar mixture, producing a tasty and refreshing drink with little or no alcohol. The SCOBY itself can be purchased online for just a few dollars, looking like a half dissolved horse hoof. Not too appetizing, I admit, but what can one expect from something that reminds us of lichens that have the power to dissolve rocks? The resulting addition to our gut biome is supposed to help us in many ways, even with the functioning of our minds. Amazing as it sounds, drinking Kombucha has raised my IQ level significantly in a very short time. My online IQ test results went up after drinking Kombucha, advancing me from a town idiot to a large genius, as my wife now calls me. What’s more, now when I awaken in the morning I don’t have to ask myself “what’s my name?” Maybe I’ll start a Kombucha brewery in Ramona and we can all be smarter!
Library hosts Holiday Book Drive San Diego County Library is hosting a Holiday Book Drive through Dec. 24 to collect new children’s books to give to area families through Reach Out & Read San Diego. Books are being accepted at any of county library’s 33 library locations, including Ramona Library at 1275 Main St. Reach Out & Read San Diego encourages families to read aloud together as doctors provide a “Prescription for Reading” and a book to children as part of their regular well-child checkups during preschool years. “We are excited to offer our community a way to give the gift of a new book to families in San Diego County and support such a fine program in the process,” said the county’s Holiday Book Drive announcement. “Reach Out & Read currently serves 85,000 families a year and is eager to reach more young readers.” County library has partnered with Reach Out & Read for many years, providing support for their work at area
family resource centers and community events. “Research shows the strong, positive impact of this program. Reach Out & Read families read together more often, and their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies and stronger language skills,” said Deputy Director Susan Moore. San Diego County Library serves as a resource for children and families to take advantage of a number of free services, such as family programs, storytimes and media checkouts. Experts consider reading a crucial aspect of development, and library representatives say they are humbled to be able to partner with a group that provides free books to young members of the community. They encourage area residents to bring a new children’s book to the library and become a part of a child’s positive growth and development. Julian Library at 1850 state Route 78 in Julian also accepts Holiday Book Drive donations. For more information about the Holiday Book Drive, visit www.sdcl.org.

Former foster child ‘shining example of a happy ending’ BY KAREN BRAINARD A former foster youth, who overcame a difficult journey to adulthood, shared her story at a fundraiser for foster care services, drawing a standing ovation from the crowd of 350. Lacey Bowman, who lives in Ramona with her husband and two young boys, shared details of her life at the Walden Family Services’ 40th Anniversary Celebration and Wine D'Vine event in San Diego that raised over $675,000 for the nonprofit's foster care, adoption and parent training programs. Bowman, 26, admits it's not always easy to tell her story, but said, "It's a nice way to bridge a gap and reach people. It's always fulfilling." Her past exemplifies stories of abused children throughout the country, said Teresa Stivers, chief executive officer of Walden Family Services. "She's really overcome all the obstacles in her life," Stivers said. When Bowman was 4 years old, her mother died and she was sent to live with her biological father and stepmother, where she was abused physically, emotionally and sexually. At 9 years old, she was removed from the home and taken to the Polinsky Children's Center, San Diego County's 24-hour emergency center for children. Bowman said it was overwhelming at first and she had some behavior issues to deal with. She was placed in a foster home but only lasted there a month before she ended up back at Polinsky — “that was the place that you get returned to...which is difficult,”
Lacey Bowman and her husband, Leonard, attend Walden Family Services' 40th anniversary celebration and benefit for youth in foster care. Lacey, a former foster child, shared her story at the event. she said in a video, her voice faltering with emotion. The girl’s sadness turned to anger, she began acting out and was sent to a mental hospital and later a group home because no other place would take her, according to Walden. She was then introduced to Walden
at 10 years old. “We’re about treating those who have been abused and neglected,” Stivers said. Bowman said her social worker would not put up with her attitude and worked hard to find her a placement, knowing how important it was to her. Walden successfully

found her a foster home where she lived from age 10 to 18, but one day during her senior year in high school, tragedy struck. Bowman found her foster mother unresponsive and called 9-1-1. The foster mother was taken to the hospital but never recovered and died. A few months later, Bowman graduated and turned to Walden to help her figure out what to do next. Bowman said the staff helped her with paperwork so she could go to college. She earned an associate’s degree in liberal arts and humanities. Through the years, she attended Camp Julian Oaks, a Christian camp that ministers to children who have been abused or neglected. Bowman said Anthony and Kristina Massa, the camp’s founding directors, are “nana and papa” to her boys. Just like Walden, Bowman said the Massas were consistently there for her and more like family. Acknowledging that she was one of the more difficult children at Walden, Bowman said, “There are people who gave up on me...A lot of hard work pays off and that’s what all kids deserve and need.” Today, Bowman volunteers and speaks on Walden’s behalf. “I’m happy to help in any way I can,” she said. “We don’t turn anybody away if they want to have a connection with us,” said Stivers. “We’re really proud of everything she’s accomplished.” Stivers added that Bowman is a hard worker and very motivated. "She is a shining example of a happy ending.”

Ramona Elementary exceeds fundraising goal
amona Elementary School exceeded its 2016 fundraising goal for Jump Rope for Heart, held to honor the late Andy Diaz, campus supervisor who died of a heart attack in June. The goal was to raise $1,000 — about $2 from each student and staff member — and donate it to the American Heart Association in memory of Diaz. When the counting was done, $1,278 was collected for the association’s heart disease research and education programs. The event, chaired by sixth-grade teacher Katie Lane, included music and fun as well as plenty of jump roping.

Gibson, Brown represent Bulldogs at state meet BY DAN BROWN Gwendalyn Gibson and Amy Brown concluded their cross-country campaign at the CIF State Championships in Fresno on Saturday. This was the second consecutive year that Gibson qualified for and competed in the state meet and, although she showed marked improvement over last year, she was disappointed with her finish. Gibson completed the course in 19:27 in 2015, finishing 88th overall. The time was the fastest ever run by a junior from Ramona at the state meet. This year Gibson finished 32nd overall with a time of 18:45. That time is the second fastest ever for a female Ramona runner at the state meet. Loretta Kilmer ran 17:46 in 2000 and Karen Karcher ran 18:47 in 1987, the first year the state meet took place. “I felt good going into the race and was hoping for my best race of the season,” said Gibson. “It was not my best day but it was still a great weekend.” Gibson had hoped for a top 10 finish, a reasonable goal as McKenna Brown from La Costa Canyon, who had finished 1 second
ahead of Gibson the week before, took seventh overall. “I moved up 49 places from last year’s state race and I was happy to be there with my teammate (Brown),” said Gibson. Brown, a freshman, competed in her first state meet. She ran well but fell short of her goal to finish in the top 100. She finished 111th out of 204 Division III runners. “I was hoping for a time in the low 19:00 range,” she said. “I went through the first mile in 5:58, right where I wanted to be and felt great. The second mile I had some stomach cramps and could not maintain my pace.” Her time of 19:59.2 is the second fastest time for a freshman at the state meet and 9th fastest overall from Ramona. Mishon Stalnaker ran 19:20 in 2000. “I thought both Gwen and Amy ran well yesterday (Saturday),” Sherri Edwards, their head coach, said. “They definitely had the worst weather conditions of the day which may have affected them. I know Gwen was disappointed with her time and place but she was still the fourth finisher from San Diego in the Division III race. “Gwen has been a great role model for
Ramona High senior Gwendalyn Gibson finishes state meet 32nd with a time of 18:45. the rest of the team throughout the season. Amy’s 19:59 was very impressive for a freshman. She was the 17th freshman finisher in Division III. She will bring back
experience of running at the state meet to share with her teammates next year. “Overall a great and satisfying season for Ramona girls cross country.”
Prep Girls Water Polo
Season gets official start Friday BY JOE NAIMAN Ramona High School's girls water polo team participated in a scrimmage at Helix High School that gave coach Donnie Williams an initial assessment of the 2016-17 Bulldogs who begin their official season Friday and Saturday at the Benson Tournament in Orange County and will host Rancho Bernardo on Dec. 8. "We've got a lot of work left to do," Williams said. Team practice began Nov. 12, and the scrimmage was Nov. 23. For some of the junior varsity players, that week of practice was the only water polo training experience they had. Only three of the JV girls, who will be coached by Megan Kinnaman, have previous water polo team experience. "We're very inexperienced at that level," Williams said. The 25 players in the program include 12 who will start the season on Ramona's varsity. The varsity has five seniors, which is how many 12th-graders the 2015-16 program had. Three of last season's starters — Maddie Schwegler, Kelsey Sherman and Ciera Webb-Martin — return for 2016-17. "There is leadership in there. There is some talent," Williams said. "The biggest thing is getting the girls all working together." The Benson Tournament, historically a three-day tournament, was reduced to two days this year. "It's a lot tighter, but we're going to go up there and try to get some stuff in early in the day," said Williams, adding that team bonding as well as competition experience are benefits of the tournament. The home game against Rancho Bernardo will prepare the Bulldogs for league home matches at Ramona's pool. This year's Valley League also consists of Classical Academy, Escondido, Fallbrook, San Pasqual, and Valley Center. Ramona finished second in the final league standings, behind Fallbrook, in 2014-15 and 2015-16. "I think we'll be all right this year," Williams said. "I think we can do some things together."
Former and current members of the Ramona High School cross-country team are among participants in the 17th Annual Turkey Trot held in San Diego Country Estates on Thanksgiving morning.
Two Bulldog runners place first in Turkey Trot 5K BY DAN BROWN Jack Clough, Ramona High School’s top cross-country runner this year, completed the hilly 3.1-mile Turkey Trot course in 18:52, and Michaela Meskell, another Bulldog varsity runner, was the top female with a time of 23:18. On Thanksgiving morning, the 17th Annual Turkey Trot 5K race was held in San Diego Country Estates. In 1999, Sandy Balcom held the first race for members of Village Fitness only. Two years later San Diego Country Estates Association became a partner and opened the race to all who wanted
to enter. The Turkey Trot now serves as a fundraiser, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to running programs at the elementary schools. Balcom still serves as the race director and said it is not marketed outside of Ramona. It has become a community gathering attracting 50 to as many as 123 each year. “I have enjoyed seeing many of the kids come out to run when they are in elementary school and some still come back and participate when they are in college,” said Balcom. Each year some runners from the
Ramona High School cross-country team, former runners, beginners and people who just want to walk the course with their families participate. Some years there have been participants who have dressed in costumes. The participants who sign up before the day of race receive a T-shirt that has been designed by Balcom’s daughter Brittany the past 10 years. There are refreshments after the race and a drawing is held after the race for prizes donated by local sponsors such as Sears, El Michoacan, San Diego Country Estates Association and Get Fit Personal Training.

Junior Pee Wees: Palomar Conference D2 Champions Ramona Pop Warner’s Junior Pee Wee Dawg Pound team, winner of the Palomar Conference Division 2 Championship, will be competing against teams from throughout the West this weekend. After finishing the season with a 6-3 record, they swept through the playoffs defeating Poway 31-0, Carlsbad 28-6, and the La Costa Canyon Mavericks 24-6 in the championship game at Rancho Bernardo High School on Saturday, Nov. 19. “The boys grew together this season, becoming a true team. They truly cared and wanted each other to do well” said Ramona Dawg Pound head coach Jeff Cohen. “It showed as the team improved each week going unbeaten in their final five games. “All season the boys worked incredibly hard and had a lot of fun. I believe they will cherish this accomplishment for a long time.” The Junior Pee Wee team consists mostly of 10 and 11 year olds, with the players having zero to five years of tackle football experience. The Palomar Conference D2 Champion Dawg Pound team will travel to Santa Clara Dec. 3 and 4 to compete in the “Best of the West” tournament against other top Junior Pee Wee teams in the western United States.

The league has two parts: An eight-week round-robin regular season followed by a single-elimination tournament for the top eight teams who will compete for the league championship. In each game the teams compete in a Three-Position Air Rifle match, modeled after
Olympic Rifle competitions but adapted to high school age athletes. Each athlete shoots 10 shots in three different shooting positions — prone, standing and kneeling. Each shot is worth a maximum of 10 points. The sum of points scored in the 30 shots is the athlete's total. The team score is comprised of the best four athletes from each team.

Ask Mr. Marketing
Paws Deck the day with holi
BY ROB WEINBERG
Selling with a smile
uccessful salespeople looking to immediately develop customer rapport know the importance of a smile. A smile is a universal indicator of openness, friendliness, relaxation, and likeability. It’s a powerful asset for salespeople looking to build long-term client relationships. Consider a job interview I once screwed up. It was about 20 years ago in Boston, and I was perfect for the position. We went through the interview process and I met six or seven people with whom I’d be working. Everything was lining up in my favor. After the meeting I wandered over to Quincy Market for lunch. Lost in thought, I didn’t pay much attention to the fellow in the suit giving me the once-over. Not recognizing him as an executive who’d wandered through the meeting I just completed, I gave him a sour look. It all went south from there, and I never heard from them again. In hindsight, looking pleasant, or at least neutral, would have undoubtedly been more profitable. Live and learn, right? Smiling’s value can’t be underestimated. It can easily make the difference between whether or not you walk out with a signed contract in your pocket. Ask yourself if you smile: 1. While talking about your company
2. On phone calls when the other person can't see you 3. During public speaking engagements 4. During video-conference calls 5. In your professional headshot People will quickly spot fake smiles, so sincerity’s important for a smile to be an effective tool. Okay, it’s true that many sales professionals have a naturally upbeat personality, smiling frequently throughout the day and during interactions with customers and prospects. Interestingly, this simple act also happens to be one of the most effective ways to cut through adverse situations, conflicts, and disappointment. If you've just been told no or a deal has fallen through, a smile is your first defense against negativity. Indeed, many studies show that smiling attracts people because it projects positivity. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow astutely observed; “Into each life some rain must fall,” but a smile is the best defense. Even if you're talking with people who don't have time or money or don't want to listen to you, smile anyway. It keeps you in control of your life, your emotions, and your selling process. With that said, I wish you a week of profitable marketing. Need a smile? Find one on www.askmrmarketing.com.
Edwards showcased as ‘winemaker to watch’ San Diego wineries, including Ramona Valley wineries, are the subject of a 10-page spread in a recent issue of San Diego Magazine suggesting that the county’s beer industry should move over, because there’s a new craft in town — wine. Victor Edwards of Edwards Vineyard & Cellars at 26502 state Route 78 was honored as one of the top five Winemakers to Watch, representing the valley’s wine industry. The October issue of the magazine writes that Edwards produces notable Syrah and Petite Sirah from his three-acre vineyard set at 2,500 ft.

Grant funding is provided through the state’s annual fire prevention fee charged to residents living in state responsibility areas (SRAs). The county Board of Supervisors recently authorized Parks and Recreation to apply for and accept up to $200,000 of SRA Fire Prevention and Tree Mortality grant money to remove dead or dying trees at Dos Picos Park, Santa Ysabel West Preserve and William Heise Park. The hazardous trees are a result of the California drought and infestations of the gold-spotted oak borer and shot hole borer, the county said. Ramona is surrounded by land that falls within SRAs. The fire prevention fee, which started in 2011 as $150 per habitable structure,
has been increased to $152.33. Owners of habitable structures that are also within the boundaries of a local fire protection agency receive a reduction of $35 per habitable structure. According to the Cal Fire website, for its 2016-17 fiscal year, the SRA Fire Prevention Fund and Tree Mortality Grant Program had $15.75 million available for projects focused on removing dead and dying trees “that pose a threat to public health and safety and for projects that reduce the wildfire threat to habitable structures within State Responsibility Areas.” The amount reflects a $10 million increase over the previous fiscal year’s total for the grant program. Parks and Recreation said the Cal Fire tree mortality grant program is competitive so it is unknown whether funding will be awarded or the final amount that it would receive.

in Ramona. The article quotes Dave Clark, wine manager for the Wine Connection in Del Mar: “I consider Victor Edwards to be the best in San Diego County, both as a grower and a winemaker. His Syrah/Petite Sirah Rosé is also something to look forward to next spring — it’s deeply colored and full-bodied, yet delicious with a chill on it. I have Edwards in my personal cellar.” “Edwards Vineyard & Cellars was quite honored by the recognition and hopes it helps draw more people ‘up the hill’ to try our Ramona-grown wines,” said Edwards.

Book explores people and pets in heaven Ramona writer researches topic, shares experiences Will our pets and wild animals greet us in heaven? That is a question many pet owners and wildlife advocates would like answered, so Ramona author Dan Story researched the question and wrote “Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?” Although the book will comfort and encourage people grieving over the death of their pets, there is much more to it than the eternal destiny of animals, said Story. It is not sentimental fluff or a superficial treatment of the topic. While it is written for ordinary readers, it is comprehensive enough to satisfy the theologically and scientifically minded. “At the same time, the book is just plain fun to read,” the author said. “I include many of my personal experiences as well as anecdotal stories and accounts from popular novelists, animal researchers, and even well-known theologians and scholars.” Written from a Christian perspective, “Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?” reveals God’s love, concern and provision for animals He created – on Earth as well as in Heaven – and the joy and pleasure
Ramona author's seventh book explores what people, pets and wild animals will experience in heaven. He derives from all non-human life, noted Story. The book explores the biblical record of human/animal relationships on Earth, what the “New Earth” (heaven) will probably look like, where it will be located, and the relationships between humans and
animals in heaven. “Most fascinating of all, I look closely at the biblical evidence for the immortality of animal souls, and provide compelling evidence for why we can be certain that earthly animals will be resurrected alongside God’s people, and join us in prophesied new heaven and earth,” he said. “I know this is an incredulous statement, but this book will demonstrate beyond reasonable doubt that it’s true.” This conclusion is supported by modern studies in animal behavior and brain science, and is also corroborated by well-known Christian theologians and scholars, he added. Story, a Ramona resident since 1979, earned a Bachelor of Arts with a theology major from San Diego Bible College and Seminary in 1985 and a Master of Arts in Christian Apologetics from The Simon Greenleaf School of Lar in 1988. “Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?” is his seventh book. More information about him and other books and articles he has written is online at www.danstory.net. In reviews on Amazon, Story’s book is described as engaging, fascinating, thought-provoking, well-written and well-researched. “Will Dogs Chase Cats in Heaven?” is available at www.amazon.com.

Rain, Wind and Fire… “The three menaces to any chimney, ﬁreplace or stove.”
William Parker Shore, Kevin Bray and John Van Sickle have a crazy Christmas in "Christmas Belles."
PowPAC stages light-hearted, enjoyable holiday show BY ELIZABETH MARIE HIMCHAK owPAC’s annual holiday play is a much lighter — and enjoyable — offering than some of its other productions this season. “Christmas Belles” is about a small Texas town church’s Christmas Eve pageant that might not occur due to several performers getting food poisoning, a “mean” drummer boy who provokes the play’s sheep to bite, an older man playing a shepherd who refuses to go on stage without his little red wagon, and the new director’s “improvements” to the show that include adding an Elvis impersonator to the religious storyline. Of course, there is also a Santa in a very smelly costume who is being tormented by a kidney stone and his wife helping backstage even though she’s overdue to give birth to twins. Then there is her jailhouse sister who accidentally burned down part of the town while seeking revenge on a cheating boyfriend. She is doing community service by “helping” with the play, but really plotting ways to escape so she can hurt her ex. Plus a mystery surrounding a newcomer to the town whom some people don’t like. Add in the church’s minister trying to get the courage to propose to his girlfriend, who is acting distant, and a competition between the new play director — who is trying to redeem her sinful reputation — and the former play director of the past 27 years — who is not ready to turn over the directorial reins — and laughs are bound to occur. All 11 cast members seemed to fully
REVIEW embrace their roles, regardless of how silly or serious their characters are. Among the more memorable characters were new play director Honey Raye Futrelle (played by Mary Ann Van Sickle), her convict sister Twink Futrelle (Christina Cunningham) and the suffering Santa Dub Dubberly (Kevin Bray), who truly appeared to be in physical pain. The play was written to encompass many different scene locations in each of the two acts. Most were in various rooms of the church. Veteran PowPAC director and set designer Kate Hewitt did a good job in staging the scenes with minimal pauses during the transitions and, as usual, the volunteer stage design/construction crew proved once again it was up to the challenge in creatively creating the numerous settings upon the small stage. “Christmas Belles” can be seen at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays plus 2 p.m. on Sundays through Dec. 18 at PowPAC, Poway’s Community Theater. Tickets are $22 for general admission and $20 for students, seniors and active duty military. Group tickets are $18 for groups of 10 or more. Tickets may be purchased at PowPAC.org. Contact the box office by sending an email to email@example.com or calling 858-679-8085. PowPAC is at 13250 Poway Road, on the second-floor of the Lively Center.

Senator meets with Rotary, honors longtime member BY KAREN BRAINARD State Sen. Joel Anderson visited a recent Ramona Rotary Club luncheon meeting, giving members insight into state politics and updates on legislation, and presenting a certificate of recognition to a longtime Rotary member. Anderson honored 96-year-old Don Owen of Ramona for his outstanding community service and 60 years of perfect attendance at Rotary meetings. The senator also invited his constituents to his Annual Holiday Legislative Open House to be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, at Toyota of El Cajon, 965 Arnele Ave. in El Cajon. The event keeps growing in attendance, he said, and will highlight positive things that are happening in the 38th District that he represents. Music, food, the opportunity to share ideas to improve state government and a chance to meet other local officials will all be part of the event. “It’s a lot of fun. It’s a very festive evening,” said Anderson, who later noted, “None of it’s paid for by taxpayers.” Anderson also shared how support and letters from his constituents have helped him in moving legislation forward. He presented copies of two senate bills, SB 1057 which he authored, and SB 2, which he coauthored. SB 1057: Andy’s law; state-level counter-terrorism would allow victims of terrorism and their families to recover damages and attorney’s fees from those who
facilitate acts of terrorism. The bill is named after Private William “Andy” Long, who was killed in June 2009 in Little Rock, Ark., when a Jihadist terrorist shot two U.S. Army soldiers outside a recruiting office. According to Anderson, several states have passed Andy’s Law but there is no avenue in California for victims of terrorism or their families to seek civil damages against those who carried out terrorism acts. SB 2: Protecting Veteran Halls would preserve property tax exemptions for Congressionally-chartered, nonprofit veterans service organizations, such as the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars, “allowing them to remain open to serve the many needs or our veteran population.” According to Anderson, many veteran halls are not receiving the property tax exemptions for portions of their property that have social purposes and this is leading many halls to run a deficit or even shut down. “Let’s honor these people who served our country,” he said. Anderson also talked about his internship program and said his office couldn’t run at the rate it does without the interns. “They’re always out in the field,” he said. One of his interns, Brittany Poler, was at the meeting, attending with members of Interact, Rotary’s service club for students at Ramona High School.

Supporting the bereaved during the holidays Grief at holiday time can be the most difficult grief of all. Someone mourning the loss of a loved one may struggle to join in the merriment, be overcome by memories of holidays past, or try to block out or avoid the celebrations altogether. It’s natural that friends and family want to step in to provide love and support, but just how you do that is important, said Lynda Cheldelin Fell (www.LyndaFell.com), an emotional healing expert and creator of the “Grief Diaries” series of books. “Don’t think that you need to fill the person’s every moment with holiday festivities,” Cheldelin Fell said. “Grieving can be both physically and emotionally exhausting. They simply may not have the energy to handle all that celebrating.” Cheldelin Fell speaks from experience. She was inspired to help others through life’s roughest moments after her 15-year-old daughter Aly died in a car accident in 2009. In 2015, Cheldelin Fell launched the “Grief Diaries,” a 16-volume series of books filled with true stories by people who have experienced loss and heartache, and want to offer comfort and hope to those facing similar challenges. Fell said that, during the holiday season, you can best provide support to the bereaved if you: • Don’t force your agenda on them. Allow the bereaved to set the tone for how they wish to cope with the holidays. Honor their choices. Whether they wish to maintain their normal holiday routine, leave town or ignore the holidays entirely, resist the urge to pressure them to handle the holidays your way. • Don’t avoid them. Your absence will be noticed more than you think. If the griever asks to be left alone, honor their wishes if it’s safe to do so. Otherwise, include them in the festivities and treat them as you would any other significantly injured guest: with kindness, compassion and
gentleness. • Don’t pretend nothing has happened in their life. That only creates the elephant in the room, and invalidates their sorrow. “But don’t awkwardly coddle them either,” Cheldelin Fell said. Again, simply treat them
with kindness, compassion and gentleness while reminding yourself that you can’t fix their pain. • Invite them to help you serve meals at local shelters. Serving those who are less fortunate, Cheldelin Fell said, is a wonderful reminder that
we aren’t alone in our struggles. • Remember to take care of yourself. If you live or work with the bereaved, their sorrow can quickly deplete your own happiness. Give yourself permission to take time to enjoy the festivities. If you
live with the griever, then carve out ways that allow you to celebrate in private. Even small ways can help, such as indulging in a favorite holiday treat or enjoying a night out with friends. “If you think you can’t make much of a difference,
“I would highly recommend these assistance programs to anybody.” Bryon

I always like to remind people how the power of one moment can change someone’s world,” Cheldelin Fell said. “One smile can change a person’s mood. One hug can change their day. That’s everything to someone in mourning.”

Six Ramona High students sign to play sports in college BY JOE NAIMAN Three softball players, two baseball players and one volleyball player from Ramona High School were among seniors at the recent letter of intent signing ceremony in San Diego Hall of Champions. Bulldogs signing college commitments included softball players Hanah Bowen, Jordyn Fick and Jamie Roe, baseball players Adrian Collazo and Cameron Rowles, and volleyball player Sammy Shupe. Bowen will play for the University of Arizona, Fick signed a letter of intent with San Diego State University, and Roe will be a student-athlete at La Sierra University in Riverside. Collazo committed to Point Loma Nazarene University, Rowles signed with New Mexico State University, and Shupe will have a college career at Northeastern University in Boston. "I'm really excited and very honored," Bowen said. "It was a good feeling," Fick said. "I'm excited." "I'm fortunate to have a school that has accepted me for my sports and my academics, to welcome me into their school and let me play the sport I love," Roe said. "It's really exciting for me and my family," Collazo said. "It's one of the biggest days in my life," Rowles said. "I've been working for this moment the last 12 years of my life." "I've been waiting to do this for a very long time," Shupe said. "There's a lot of relief and it's very exciting." Bowen was also considering San Diego State University, Michigan State, Texas A&M and the University of Utah before choosing Arizona. "The first time I stepped on the campus, it just felt like home and it was a good environment,” she said. “I just loved the coaches and players as well." Bowen plans to major in sports medicine and hopes to have a career as an athletic trainer. She attended Ramona Community School from kindergarten through sixth grade and Olive Peirce Middle School for seventh and eighth grades before her four years at Ramona High School. She began her softball career at the T-ball level when she was 5 and initially participated in the Ramona Girls Softball organization. She started her travel ball career with the So Cal Breakers, spent 2016 with the Batbusters, who practice in Orange County, and is currently on the Athletics travel team. The Valley League coaches placed Bowen on the all-league first team in each of her first three seasons. She was the Valley League Player of the Year as a sophomore and the league's Pitcher of the Year as a junior. The panel of coaches and media members who select the all-CIF teams placed Bowen on the second team in 2015 and 2016. "She's going to fit right in with Arizona," said Ramona softball coach Kristina Wright. "Hanah is a bulldog on the field, no pun intended. She is just a fierce competitor." Bowen plays third base when she is not pitching for Ramona, and Wright noted that Bowen's ability to play multiple positions will increase her chance to have significant playing time for Arizona. "It just opens up that much more opportunity for her," Wright said.
PHOTOS BY DOUG SOOLEY
Hanah Bowen Fick was contemplating an offer from Colorado State University before deciding to stay in San Diego County. In addition to the opportunity to play close to her hometown, the Aztecs' program was a factor in Fick's choice of schools. "I like the coaches," she said. Her desired career as a veterinarian includes majoring in biology at San Diego State. Fick, who has been a Ramona resident since birth, preceded her Ramona High School years with study at Barnett Elementary School and Olive Peirce Middle School. Her softball career began at the age of 6 with Ramona Girls Softball competition, and when she was 12 she began her travel ball career with the Rebels. She is currently on the So Cal Breakers 18-and-under travel team. Softball is the only varsity sport Fick played at Ramona High School. She also played junior varsity volleyball as a freshman and junior varsity basketball as a sophomore. She made Ramona's varsity softball team as a freshman. "Jordyn is such an awesome person to have on the team," Wright said. "She has such a great attitude." The Valley League coaches gave Fick, who is Ramona's center fielder, all-league first team honors in both 2015 and 2016. "She did awesome last year," Wright said. "I look forward to having her this year to be another spark in our lineup." Roe was considering attending Iona University in New York and Montana State
Sammy Shupe University before choosing a campus closer to Ramona. "I can come home whenever I want," she said. Academically Roe has not yet selected a major, but she is hoping for a career in law enforcement or as a firefighter. Roe is a lifelong Ramona resident who attended Montessori School until fourth grade and then attended Ramona Community School before her years at Olive Peirce Middle School and Ramona High School. She began her organized softball career with Ramona Girls Softball when she was 10. She was 15 when she began her travel ball career with the So Cal Breakers. She was with the Power Surge club in 2016 and is with the Next Level traveling team this year. As a freshman Roe made Ramona High School's varsity softball team. She received honorable mention all-league recognition as a sophomore and was on the Valley League second team as a junior. Roe is Ramona's catcher. Wright was a catcher during her high school and college playing career. "She has the potential," Wright said of Roe. "She has everything that it takes to be a good leader. She is going to be such a good presence on the field."
Jamie Roe Bowen, Fick, and Roe are among six seniors expected to play for Ramona in 2017. "I think that all three of them have exemplified great leadership on the field and off the field," Wright said. "They're going to do very well at the next level," Wright said. "I'm very excited for them." Collazo was mulling opportunities at the University of Pacific and the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs before deciding to play for Point Loma Nazarene. "It's a smart school and it's close to home," he said. His business major would allow Collazo a planned career as a stockbroker. Collazo is a lifelong Ramona resident. He attended Ramona Elementary School and Olive Peirce Middle School before beginning his Ramona High School activities. His organized baseball career began as a 6-year-old with Ramona Pony Baseball. He was 9 when the Ramona Bulldogs became his first travel team, and he is currently with the West Coast Clippers. Collazo was on the Bulldogs' freshman squad in 2013 — the most recent year Ramona has had a freshman team — and became a varsity player as a sophomore. SEE BULLDOGS, A20

"He's a flat-out gamer and he's got a very good feel of the game and he doesn't back down to anybody. I can't remember a time when he didn't come through," said Ramona baseball coach Dean Welch. "He just energizes the team. He competes at a very high level every single day." Collazo has played outfield, second base and shortstop for the Bulldogs. The 2015 Valley League coaches made him an honorable mention all-league selection, and in 2016 he was on the all-league first team. "Adrian's also a very classy kid," Welch said. "He's a very good student-athlete, a very good representative of the program." Rowles was also considering Florida International University, San Jose State University, the University of California at Riverside and California State University Bakersfield before New Mexico State University became his selection. "The coaches were perfect to me. Everything that they offered me was perfect," he said. New Mexico State University is in Las Cruces, and that town's character was also a factor in Rowles' decision. "It's like a bigger Ramona," he said. Rowles intends to major in kinesiology and hopes for a sports medicine career once his playing days conclude. "I want to be around something that I love," he said. In his early childhood Rowles moved from Santee to Ramona, where he attended Barnett Elementary School before his time at Olive Peirce Middle School and Ramona High School. He began his Ramona Pony Baseball career when he was 6 and first played travel ball with the Ramona Bulldogs travel team when he was 9. He is currently on the West Coast Clippers travel club. Rowles began his freshman season on Ramona's junior varsity team and was called up to the varsity during that 2013 season. He made the Bulldogs' football varsity as a sophomore but played for only a year before opting to focus on baseball. "He's a very exciting player. He's the kind of guy who whenever he steps in the box you'd better be watching because he can change the game in a hurry," Welch said. "He's a tremendous defender with a cannon for an arm." Rowles is Ramona's shortstop. He received all-league second team distinction as a sophomore and as a junior. "We're still just starting to see what Cameron can become," Welch said. "He's coming into his own now." Shupe was also considering the University of California campuses in San Diego and Davis and was contacted by other schools. One of those other schools was Northeastern. "I had never heard of the school before," she said. Northeastern's internship program was the primary factor in Shupe's college choice. "It turns out they have a pretty good program called the co-op program," she said. "It's a lot easier to find jobs once they graduate. You'll be getting that job experience while you're going to school." Northeastern also has a marine biology major. "It's something that I've been interested in since I was probably 5," she said. "It's very exciting," said Ramona volleyball coach Connie Halfaker. "It's a real good match for her." Shupe was 5 when her family moved to Ramona from the Sacramento suburb of Roseville. She spent kindergarten through fifth grade at James Dukes Elementary School and sixth through eighth grades at Olive Peirce. Shupe began her club volleyball career with Epic when she was in eighth grade and has been with the Coast program for the past two years. She will spend the 2017 club season as a Wave member. In each of her four Ramona High School seasons, Shupe was the Bulldogs' starting setter, and she received all-league honors all four years. She was on the Valley League second team as a freshman and on the first team for her final three high school seasons. The most recent all-CIF volleyball selections were for the 2015 season, and as a junior Shupe was on the all-CIF second team. "She's elevated her game," Halfaker said. "She's going to be very ready to step in and play at that next level, and I'm sure she's going to continue a very successful career."

We have had so much positive support in a short period of time; we are truly looking forward to the great impact we will make on the community.” “His main job is to actually do the physical work and I’m behind the scenes,” said Jessica, who has been busy setting up the organization. “It just means so much to him — the camaraderie,” she said, adding that the support they’ve received has been “absolutely incredible.” Cory, 35, has four more years in the Navy until he can retire. He has served on seven deployments, working with helicopter search and rescue. For the next two years he is on shore duty at North Island, she said, and then will be on deployable status the following two years. The couple moved to Ramona about five years ago so they could have more space to raise their 6-year-old twins, Wesley and Charlotte. Jessica, formerly a financial adviser, homeschools their children. Timing appeared to be right for launching The Special Liberty Project just a few months ago as Jessica said they met with a group of San

Diego investors and walked away with a huge donation. They have their first hunt set up for three Purple Heart recipients at the end of January at Vandenberg Air Force Base. There they will hunt wild pigs, which have become invasive in that area, said Jessica. The experience is not the only benefit the veterans will receive. “All the meat will be used,” said Jessica, explaining that after the animal is killed the meat will be processed and packaged for veterans to take home. “It’s also going to be very educational, too,” she said of the hunting opportunity. “My husband is a survivalist.” The couple has short- and long-term goals. They plan to work with other veteran organizations in San Diego to find veterans who would most benefit from the experience, and they hope to conduct hunts in other states. Jessica said they will need one or two others to help lead the hunts. The husband and wife also hope to one day acquire a ranch where they will be able to invite not only the combat-wounded veterans but also Gold Star families. “That’s the end goal,” said Jessica. Quarterly fundraisers are in the works, she said. The organization’s website explains the meaning behind the name: Special liberty is “liberty granted by a unit’s commanding officer outside of regular liberty for a special occasion or circumstance.” For more information, see speciallibertyproject.com or The Special Liberty Project on Facebook.
