Fair board to consider e-cigarette ban BY JOE TASH The San Diego County Fair, which went smoke-free in all public areas for the first time this year, may go a step further in 2014 and ban e-cigarettes. Members of the 22nd District Agricultural Association board, which runs the state-owned Del Mar Fairgrounds, said they want more information about ecigarettes before making a final decision on whether to allow them at the fairgrounds. The issue could come back before the board in January or February, in time to change the fair’s smoking policy before the 2014 event starts in June. “We’re a smoke-free environment. You can’t even tell them apart” from a distance, said fair board member Lisa Barkett, referring to electronic and tobacco cigarettes. “I’m completely against it.” The board heard a report about the newly instituted smoking ban at its meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 17. Anti-smoking advocates also addressed the board, urging it to consider banning e-cigarettes. Electronic, or e-cigarettes, are battery-powered devices that produce a nicotine vapor. Supporters say they are less harmful than regular cigarettes, and are used by many people to quit smoking. Critics contend they encourage use by young people and they are also sometimes used to smoke illegal drugs, such as marijuana or even heroin. Government agencies from the federal, state and local levels are considering regulations on e-cigarettes, which may come into force in the coming year. As for the fairgrounds, officials said the smoking See BAN, page 11

Construction on project at Whispering Palms entrance slated to begin soon

BY JOE TASH Construction will likely begin in late January 2014 on a long-delayed residential and commercial project at the entrance to the Whispering Palms community in Rancho Santa Fe, said the project’s developer. The Palma de la Reina project will include 54 apartments, 19,500 square feet of office space, and 9,500 square feet of retail shops. It will be built on a 4.3-acre parcel at the corner of Via de la Valle and Cancha de Golf. “I think we will come out of the ground with the construction sometime in the latter part of January,” said developer Richard Cavanaugh. Getting to this point hasn’t been easy for Cavanaugh and his company, Newport Pacific, Inc. Residents of Whispering Palms staunchly oppose the project, contending it will add to existing traffic congestion in the area and that it packs too much development onto the parcel. They have filed a series of lawsuits challenging the project and its environmental documents, but a Superior Court judge in January cleared the way for construction to begin. The Whispering Palms Community Council could have appealed the judge’s decision, but over the summer agreed to drop further legal challenges if Cavanaugh would pay nearly $200,000 in legal costs to the council, stemming from an earlier ruling in the case. Current and former members of the community council declined requests for interviews for this story. But in an email, Jeff Carmel, a long-time council member who was inSee PROJECT, page 30

BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe School District Board elected new officers Dec. 12, once again voting Richard Burdge the board president. The board elected Todd Frank as vice president and Tyler Seltzer as clerk. During the organizational meeting, the board also set its meeting schedule for the upcoming year, marking an end to a trial run of hosting several meetings at 1 p.m. this year. Superintendent Lindy Delaney said it was her preference that meetings return to a night schedule as it is a better use of her time. The board agreed to return to a more traditional schedule, although meetings will be held at 5 p.m. rather than 6 p.m. Meetings will be held

Richard Burdge the first Thursday of every month in 2014 with the exceptions of Tuesday, Jan. 14; Wednesday, Feb. 5; Thursday, July 10; Thursday, Aug. 22; and Thursday Dec. 11. At January’s meeting, Delaney will bring potential changes to the dress code before the board, as well as a parent survey on bonds to renovate the school gym that could go out to families that month.

The Buzz: Open meetings and closed sessions — What’s going on? BY ANN BOON, RSF ASSOCIATION BOARD PRESIDENT This is a very busy Association board and I am proud to Ann Boon be leading it this year. We have so many things we are trying to accomplish — even the Association Manager admits he has “never seen it so busy.” Maybe you noticed in last week’s issue of the Review how many articles related to topics that were covered in our Dec. 5 board meeting. We discussed when the RSF Golf Club would be ready to present its Master Plan (including its tree management plan); considered the possibility of granting full membership rights to condominium members; heard members’ comments about the Secret Car Club and a possible Farmers Market; directed staff to work with the Golf Club on further study regarding secondary water; and discussed a proposal from an outside consultant that we are considering engaging to help us study the possibility of building a pool and fitness

center. And all that was just in open session. There were more issues that we had to deal with in closed session. Closed session, you ask? Why should anything be discussed behind closed doors in a homeowners’ association? California sunshine laws that govern HOAs are formally known as the Davis-Stirling Common Interest Development Open Meeting Act and our own bylaws clearly state that we are bound by this act. The act specifies the few issues that may be discussed in closed session: “litigation, matters relating to the formation of contracts with third parties, member discipline, personnel matters, or to meet with a member, upon the member’s request, regarding the member’s payment of assessments.” Fortunately, our Association very rarely has personnel or member matters to address. Occasionally, we have litigation that must be discussed. And, very often, we have matters relating to the formation of contracts with third parties. Technically, at our last meeting, we could have held the discussion regarding the consultant in closed session since it related to a possible

contract. However, I am fundamentally committed to openness, transparency and inclusiveness. And in this case, I believe that it is very important for all of our members to be fully informed about our nascent pool-fitness project at every step of the process. Fortunately, when I proposed that this item be on the open agenda, no one on the board disagreed. One important issue that has been discussed in closed session over the past year has been the negotiation to purchase the Garden Club building by the Association. As you may recall, the 2012-2013 Association board requested a vote of the Association membership to enter into a transaction to purchase the Garden Club building. The wording in the letter of understanding was purposely general to give the attorneys representing the Association and those representing the Garden Club the flexibility they would need to negotiate the specific transaction points. However, the following points were made very clear to members in the document that accompanied the ballot: the price to be paid for the building would be $2,369,250; the Garden

Club’s proceeds from selling the building would go back into the Covenant exclusively; and the building would be used by the Covenant community and organizations that benefit the Covenant community. As negotiations have gone on, the last point has been difficult to resolve with the Garden Club board. The Association board is duty-bound to negotiate an agreement that is in total compliance with what the community voted on with over 80 percent approval last winter. We will continue our negotiations in closed session through the end of the year. Regardless of the outcome, we will be reporting on the negotiations at our Jan. 2, 2014 meeting. Your Association board welcomes all members of the Covenant to attend our board meetings, to make comments and to request that items be placed on an agenda for discussion. I hope to see you at a future meeting and to hear your comments. If you cannot make it to a meeting but you want your voice to be heard, please send your comments and concerns to the Association office with a copy to me:

Ann Romney speaks at local event to raise funds for medical research BY KRISTINA HOUCK As a breast cancer survivor who was also diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Ann Romney is a health advocate. She and her family recently returned from a mission trip to Peru, where they worked with eye doctors to conduct vision screenings in remote villages in the Andes. To support breast cancer and vision research, the wife of presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was the keynote speaker at a Dec. 9 local fundraiser. “It’s an extraordinary thing to see how none of us really escape a lot of pain when we live on this earth,” said Romney to the crowd at the “Visions of Success: From Research to Reality” holiday high tea at The Grand Del Mar in Carmel Valley. Romney gave a short speech and was later interviewed by Channel 10 news anchor Bill Griffith, who co-emceed the event with fellow anchor Kimberly Hunt. Griffith and Susie Spanos, both breast cancer survivors, also served as honorary chairs of the event. Romney, who owns a home in La Jolla, attended the event with one of her five sons, as well as two daughters-inlaw and two granddaughters. She said her family supported her through her cancer battle in 2008, as well as her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 1998. “Life is so precious,” Romney said. “You really feel like it might just get ripped out from underneath you. You realize how much you want to hang onto life and how you want to hang onto moments. You realize what’s important in life.” Rancho Sante Fe resident Vivian Hardage and Wanda Garner served as co-chairs of the event, which was hosted by The Vision of Children Foundation. Hardage and her husband, Samuel Hardage, established the foundation in 1991, after their son was diagnosed with ocular albinism, a

Photo/Bill Keane genetic vision disorder. The organization funds research to cure hereditary childhood blindness and other vision disorders. As a three-time breast cancer survivor, Hardage is also an advocate for breast cancer research. “I am grateful for each new day,” Hardage said. “I tell my story to pretty much anyone who will listen. In doing so, I hope people will understand the critical need for medical research for both breast cancer and vision disorders. It has become my passion, and in my mind, my reason for still being here. My vision of success is translating research into reality.” Romney praised the couple for their efforts. “Thank you, Vivian and Sam, for all that you do to raise awareness and to raise money

for cures,” Romney said. “She’s trying to find a cure for others. It may not be her turn to be helped by the cure, but it may be one of your daughters’ turns to be helped by the cure,” Romney told the audience. The holiday tea featured a live auction, opportunity drawings and a fashion show. Nine of the 10 models were breast cancer survivors. The event raised more than $250,000, which will benefit The Vision of Children Foundation and the American Cancer Society.

Actor Jeffrey Tambor inspires others to follow their dreams BY KRISTINA HOUCK Jeffrey Tambor was 9 when he decided he wanted to be an actor. He had stumbled upon a rehearsal at the theater across the street from his San Francisco home. “It was the first time I ever felt love,” Tambor said. “It was the first time I ever felt connection. The first time I ever felt my own power. The first time I ever felt God. “I found my purpose.” For 40 years, Tambor has starred in numerous television shows and movies, including “Arrested Development” and “The Hangover” films. But he almost let fear keep him from his passion. Tambor talked about overcoming fear and chasing passion during the second annual “Inspiring Minds Speaker Series” on Dec. 10 at Congregation Beth Am in Carmel Valley. His one-man show “What’s Keeping You from Performing Your Life?” encouraged audience members to discover what’s been holding them back from reaching their dreams. Born in San Francisco, Tambor was the son of a housewife and a contractor. As a child, he had a bilateral lisp and was overweight. His family “put the ‘D’ back in dysfunctional,” he said. “People think this story is about happiness,” Tambor said. “I am the son of Russian Hungarian Jews, so I know nothing about happiness.” Tambor eventually found happiness in acting and reading — he’s part owner of a Los Angelesbased bookstore. But when the 69-yearold actor achieved success early in his career, he let fear overcome him. He was

that keeps on giving.

Rabbi David Kornberg and actor Jeffrey Tambor. Photo/Jon Clark scared of losing success. “When I got successful, that’s when the trouble started with me,” he said. “I would drive to the set the night before to practice driving to the set. I would take the call sheet and memorize the call sheet. I would learn lines over and over until I learned them so much that I didn’t know them. I drove myself crazy. I lost my confidence.” Tambor recalled auditioning for a Bounce dryer sheet commercial. He didn’t have to be on set until 6 p.m., but he showed up at 6 a.m. He practiced his line, “Hey, my socks don’t cling,” over and over. When he finally got in front of the camera, he forgot his line. “My bank account got to zero, and I realized I had to beat this thing,” he said. “I believe what keeps us from our purpose, what keeps us from our dream, what keeps us from being all that we can be is a story,” Tambor said. “My story is, ‘I’m really not good enough.’” He asked the audience, “What’s your story? What’s keeping you?” After earning a master’s degree in theater arts from Wayne State University in Michigan, Tambor went on to play a variety of characters in television and film, including the role of Hank Kingsley in “The Larry Sanders Show.” His character coined the catchphrase, ‘Hey, now!’ and Tambor received four Emmy nominations for his performance. Today, Tambor lives with his wife, Kasia Ostlun, and their four children. He also has an adult daughter from a previous relationship. “Adore everything,” Tambor said. “All of it — the ups and downs — because this is not a dress rehearsal. This is it.” For more on Tambor, visit

The Spirit of Liberty Foundation’s Freedom Bell honors victims of attack on Pearl Harbor The Spirit of Liberty Foundation’s Freedom Bell traveled to Honolulu to honor

the victims of the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Day.

Free Yourself!

The nearly 300-pound Liberty Bell replica was cast on June 6, D-Day, incorporating steel remnants from the World Trade Center towers. The exterior of the bell displays the seal of all five branches of the U.S. military — the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. The base of the bell is embossed with 50 stars, one for every state. Rancho Santa Fe resident Richard Rovsek came up with the concept for the bell, drawing it on a paper napkin last May. Rovsek, a former member of President Ronald Reagan’s staff, is the founder of the Spirit of Liberty Foundation, which supports men and women in the Armed Forces with an emphasis on wounded warriors and fallen heroes. The Freedom Bell also recently made a visit to Arlington National Ceremony for Veterans Day.

RSF Jr. Girl Scouts support ‘Holiday Mail for Heroes’ When Angela McMillen received an email from an Outreach Specialist at Camp Pendleton informing her of the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” campaign, she called into action Jr. Scout Troop 1780. The girls, all 4th graders at Roger Rowe Elementary School, gathered to write cheerful letters and stuff small holiday bags with hot cocoa, cider, coffee, biscotti and candy canes. In a small break with tradition, they didn’t simply thank the soldiers for their service, they each also included a handwritten riddle or joke. “I remember what it was like spending my first Christmas as a young bride alone because my husband was deployed during Operation Desert Storm,” McMillen said. “I was lonely, but it was much worse for my husband who was sleeping in a tent in the desert. He missed his family terribly. I hope the girls’ jokes and riddles help the soldiers start the new year off with a smile.”

Former Rancho Santa Fe Attack teammates face off at NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Championships BY KAREN BILLING After years of playing for the same team, two former Rancho Santa Fe Attack teammates found themselves facing off in the NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Championships in San Antonio on Dec. 6. Sarah Noble of Rancho Santa Fe, a starting center midfielder for Middlebury in Vermont, squared off against old RSF Attack and Bishop’s teammate Devan Osegueda of Encinitas, the starting goalie for Texas’ Trinity University. The young women were four years removed from leading Bishop’s to victory in the Butch Lee Memorial Soccer Tournament at Cathedral Catholic and having gone on to play college soccer in different parts of the country, they never believed they would match up. Trinity edged Middlebury 2-1 in the semi-final game, with Noble’s Panthers finishing third in NCAA rankings and Osegueda’s Tigers ranking second. “To play in Texas for the Final Four was the coolest experience, it was a nice way to end my soccer career on a high note,” said Noble, on the phone at JFK International Airport in New York as she traveled home to California for the holidays. “Even though we lost it was such a special opportunity that I’ll remember always.” Middlebury won the trip to San Antonio by finishing first in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) regular season, with Noble scoring in the semifinal 2-1 win and getting an assist on the goal to win the championship. Middlebury then went through the first four rounds of the NCAA tournament with Noble scoring in the Sweet Sixteen victory over Misericordia and contributing solid defense to the team’s shutout over Johns Hopkins in the Elite 8. A senior at Middlebury, Noble started playing soccer with Rancho Santa Fe Attack when she was about 6 years old. She and Osegueda were teammates from the age of 12 through high school, where they played together at Bishop’s. They were nicknamed the “Cool Combo” when they

Former RSF Attack teammates Devan Osegueda and Sarah Noble met up in the NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Championships. Courtesy photo won that Butch Lee tournament when Noble was a senior and Osegueda a junior. “I really liked being on a team, it’s one of my favorite things about the sport, the camaraderie,” Noble said. “At Bishop’s we were really close and I didn’t think a team could be any more like a family until I got to college. All of my college teammates are my best friends.”

When Noble was applying to colleges, her focus first was on academics, but she knew she would like to play soccer for her school as well. She was a walk-on on the Middlebury team and didn’t play much as a freshman and was injured for most of her sophomore year. “I worked my way up to getting more playing time,” Noble said. “It was exciting to see all that hard work pay off.” Working her way up from a walk-on to an every game starter was one of Noble’s proudest soccer accomplishments. This year, no one had expected Middlebury to be at the top. The team had lost nine seniors and everyone thought it would be a rebuilding year with 11 freshmen coming aboard. “We took it game by game and ended up coming in first in the regular season for NESCAC and got to host the whole NESCAC post season,” Noble said. They earned an automatic bid to the NCAA’s where the underdog #13 ranked Middlebury reached the Final Four for the first time in school history with an Elite 8 win over Johns Hopkins in the last 17 seconds of the game. The dramatic Johns Hopkins game was also a special challenge for a California girl as the game was played in 20-degree weather with a zero-degree wind chill factor. “It was the worst weather I’ve ever played in. I was absolutely freezing and wore three shirts,” Noble said. During the NCAA tournament, Noble kept an eye on Osegueda’s Tigers. Osegueda made critical saves for the Tigers to help the team win in penalty kicks over Illinois Wesleyan and in their 2-1 win over Wheaton College in the Elite 8 round. It became clear the former teammates would meet in the Final Four. “I never thought we would play each other so it was cool to see that happen,” Noble said. Before the game, Noble and Osegueda had the opportunity to meet up with the various activities the NCAA has See ATTACK, page 30

BAN continued from page 1 ban was a factor in reduced attendance at this year’s fair. Fairgrounds general manager Tim Fennell said the conclusion is based on fewer visitors after four straight years of attendance increases, and comments made by visitors and vendors. Between 2009 and this year, the fairgrounds gradually reduced the number of designated smoking areas until they were phased out entirely. According to a staff re-

port, San Diego County is the only fair in California to completely ban smoking. Other entertainment venues, such as SeaWorld and Disneyland, do have designated smoking areas, while the San Diego Zoo and Legoland are also smoke-free. At this year’s fair, smoking was only allowed in three non-public areas used by fair workers. For now, the fair board has left the policy unchanged, but that could change before the 2014 fair. In spite of the potential hit on attendance, board members were supportive of

the smoking ban. “We are trail-blazers. We do lead the way and are a good example for the others,” said board president Fred Schenk. “I’ve heard from all kinds of people saying thank you. I’ve had overwhelming public support,” said board member Adam Day. Public speakers at Tuesday’s meeting also urged the fair board to take action to curb smoking of both cigarettes and marijuana at concerts held during the horse racing meet, which runs from July through early September.

“In a nutshell, Elite (security) needs to get inside the crowd instead of standing on the perimeter,” said Nancy Logan. The type of music presented at the concerts also has an effect on smoking, speakers said. “Reggae bands have a certain type of audience that does a lot of marijuana and cigarette smoking,” said Barbara Gordon. Fair board members did not comment on whether they would support increased enforcement of smoking rules at post-race concerts.

Young panelists share experiences overcoming drug and alcohol abuse at TPHS Red Ribbon week event BY KAREN BILLING At this year’s recent Red Ribbon Week at Torrey Pines High School, the message to the teenagers was to “Stop and think� and realize that the decisions that they make regarding drugs and alcohol can affect them for the rest of their lives. Don Hollins, teacher and PALS advisor who coordinated the week’s events, understands how serious that impact can be more than most. In his 10 years in the San Dieguito Union High School District, he has lost 15 of his students to drug overdoses. Heroin is the most troubling trend in those overdoses, Hollins said, exacerbated by the abuse of prescription pills. According to data released by the San Diego County Medical Examiner earlier this year, prescription drug overdoses are at an all-time high. The most common drug in accidental overdoses in people ages 20 to 29 is heroin, a drug that has maintained a yearly increase since 2007. In addition to a week full of activities and powerful guest speakers for the students, Torrey Pines hosted an evening presentation for parents on Dec. 11 that included a panel of speakers who overcame drug and alcohol abuse at young ages. One of the speakers, Gabe, is just 20 years old and has been sober for five years; at the age of 15 he had become an alcoholic drug addict. He said his parents’ separation took a toll on him and created “ a gap in his spirit.� He didn’t see his parents much and didn’t have a lot of structure, leading to him being suspended five times for being drunk at school as a seventh grader — twice he was found passed out on the field at Diegueno Middle School. He said he took advantage of his mom’s vulnerability to get her to allow him to smoke weed and drink beer at her home. Another panelist, Morgan, grew up in La Jolla, an admittedly “incredibly arrogant kid.� He grew up around a lot of affluence and around adults who had accomplished many things. “It was inspiring but it also gave me a warped sense of reality,� Morgan said. “It gave me a vision of what was possible in life, it didn’t seem like there was a ceiling. But I had no perspective of the reality of how the rest of the world was.� His parents were good people but absent, working hard. He first drank at 12 and began stealing and lying to get

Don’t Drink and Drive display. Photo/Jon Clark money to support his habits. As his friends’ parents were also not around, their pool houses became “dens of debauchery.� Teacher Don Hollins has known another panelist, Taylor, since he was 14. “Five years ago I thought he was going to die,� Hollins said. Taylor said he had no idea when he took his first drink at 14 that in a couple of years he would overdose on heroin. The progression moved quickly, he said. He stole alcohol from grocery stores, pills from friends’ parents’ medicine cabinets and once he started doing heroin he could not stop — he was stuck doing the drug not to get high but so he wouldn’t get sick, he said. “At 17 years old I was a full-on heroin addict, that was scary,� said Taylor, admitting his life was full of anxiety but instead of telling anyone about it, he lied. “I have five years clean and sober and it’s phenomenal when I think where I was five to seven years ago. It’s incredible to do life instead of running from it.� Hollins thanked the panel for their courage to say

Budding TPHS chefs participate in county-wide high school culinary competition BY KAREN BILLING Torrey Pines High School was one of 12 schools to get cooking in the recent inaugural county-wide high school culinary competition. Young chefs McKenna Lewry, Laura Black Cat Kennedy, Luke Sampiere and Katarina Svinterud represented Torrey Pines at the 2013 San Diego County Career Technical Education (CTE) Master Chefs competition on Dec. 10 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Their competition dish was Asian-style peanut noodles with shrimp, colorful chopped vegetables and a lime garnish. “I think they did really well,” said teacher Kelly Coward. “I’m really proud of their knife skills, their sanitation methods and their timing — they timed it really well, which was great. And they had fun.” Students had one hour and two butane burners to put together a five-component entrée that demonstrated their culinary creativity and skills. Their dishes were then judged by an expert panel of chefs that included, among others: Ron Oliver, chef de cuisine at the Marine Room; Laura Bruce, the sous chef at The Lodge at Torrey Pines; Mark Blaauboer, the director of culinary programs at The Art Institute; and Barry Schneider, the executive chef at Premier Food Services. First through third place was awarded on Dec. 10, with Fallbrook High School taking first place, San Dieguito Academy, another team from the San Dieguito Union School District, finishing second, and Scripps Ranch taking third place. The county’s CTE (career technical education) and ROP (regional occupational program) programs help prepare students for futures in college, careers and beyond. At Torrey Pines, there is an introductory ROP class in culinary arts and one in international food. “I’ve been cooking my whole life so it was an easy transition for me into this class,” said Cat, the only junior on the team of seniors. “I learned more about the correct way to do it all.” Now a senior, the first time Luke ever cooked he was a freshman and the class has encouraged him to try out differ-

Photo/Karen Billing ent recipes at home, going beyond simple cookies to playing with his grandma’s rice pilaf recipe and putting his own spin on chicken and noodle dishes. “The class introduced me to more different regional cuisines and food cultures,” Luke said. Coward selected the team who would represent Torrey Pines with an inner-class competition. Groups of students in her class were all given the same recipe to modify and add their own special touches and tweaks. The winning team worked on their recipe for about a month, taking into consideration the limitations of only having butane burners to cook with; some ideas they would not be able to execute so they had to be creative, Coward said. The original recipe called for chicken and chicken stock, but the group decided to make the dish pescatarian and switched out the chicken for shrimp and used vegetable

stock instead. They took out the siracha so it wasn’t so spicy and used a peanut sauce instead and to add a crunch, they tossed in water chestnuts. All their vegetables were hand chopped and Coward complimented Laura on her “beautiful” work, slicing while protecting her fingers and keeping her thumbs in the right spot. The team worked for their hour in a cluster of tables in the Turf Club at the fairgrounds, alongside various teams in different stages of the competition. “It was the perfect amount of time,” said Cat, unphased by the competition’s ticking clock. When the time was up, the team members then presented their dishes to the expert panel, describing their dish and answering questions, lined up in their white aprons and white and blue paper chef’s hats. Cat admits it was a little nerve-wracking having to stand in front of the judges table while they all took bites of the dish, but overall the team received positive feedback.

Colorful tile roofs were made using Necco wafers. Kids made candy walkways, licorice siding and gumdrop chimneys. The young architects mostly resisted eating their construction materials, but rogue frosting on cheeks was a dead giveaway! Parents, grandparents and siblings joined in on the fun day.

RSF Association Osuna Committee holds Christmas celebration BY KAREN BILLING The Osuna Adobe was decked out for the holidays as the Rancho Santa Fe Association board, trails committee and Osuna Committee hosted a Christmas cocktail reception at the 182-year-old structure on Dec. 11. Inside, the adobe was decorated with wreaths and garlands, and attendees mingled as Daria Quay, the Osuna Ranch manager and Association secretary, served up her famous frosty Brandy Alexanders in plastic flutes. Outside, people gathered around the fires burning in the front courtyard of the adobe under a stunning pink sunset. The exterior of the adobe has received a facelift, structural damage repairs have been made, and now the members of Amigos de Osuna are currently fundraising to complete the rest of the planned restorations of the adobe. Jerry Yahr, Association director and chairman of the Osuna Committee, is hoping that 2014 will be a big year for the adobe. Yahr said they have completed an architectural plan for renovations of the adobe, the culmination of extensive studies and research. The research has guided the committee in planning a restoration that reflects the various layers of history important to the Osuna, from its 1831 origins as a one-room home with a long front porch and thatched roof, to the Lilian Rice update in 1924 that added the kitchen, bathroom, fireplace, an enclosed porch, garden walls, a tile roof and removed the long porch. The committee’s planned restoration will bring back the long porch but leave some Rice elements, such as the fireplace and living room. They will remove the non-historic kitchen and bathrooms. The Rice-era tile floors will remain in the living room but the rest of the adobe will be restored to wood floors. Yahr estimates the work to be about $500,000 and they have started a donor-advised fund with the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation to help reach that goal. To learn more about how to contribute, visit While there is still much to complete on the Osuna restoration, the Osuna Committee has already attained the goals of community education and the creation of a vibrant local resource. Earlier in the year, 70 students from R. Roger Rowe School participated in a field trip to the Osuna ranch to learn about the adobe and make their own adobe bricks. It is the hope that the trip will be an annual occasion for the school, so children can learn about the valuable piece of history in their own backyards.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

December 19, 2013



December 19, 2013

PROJECT continued from page 1 volved in the legal battle over Palma de la Reina and has since stepped down from the panel, said the group felt it had taken the fight as far as it could. The project had also drawn opposition from the San Dieguito Community Planning Group and the Rancho Santa Fe Association, although it was ultimately approved by the County Board of Supervisors. Crews have completed grading on the site and put in most of the needed utility lines, said Cavanaugh, the original developer of Whispering Palms, and also a resident of the community. Whispering Palms includes about 600 single-family homes and condominiums. Cavanaugh said he’s been working with the county to get the needed building permits for about four months, and that he was planning to pick up one of the permits the week of Dec. 9. He expects construction of the commercial portion of the project to take eight months, and the residential component to take 14 months. Work on both

Rancho Santa Fe Review sections will take place simultaneously. Although opposition to the project by nearby residents has been stiff, Cavanaugh said he believes the community will warm to the development once it is completed, and the community-serving retail shops are open. “It’s going to be a nice project and the community will be a lot better for it,” he said. “It’s just a good thing, period.” Controversy over the vacant parcel dates back at least to the 1990s, when Cavanaugh proposed building an assisted living facility on the property. Residents also opposed that plan, and it was later withdrawn. County supervisors voted unanimously in January 2010 to allow the project to move forward. Supervisor Ron Roberts said he had been convinced residents would come to regret their opposition to the assisted living facility, because the current mixed-use development will generate more noise and traffic. “I think we’re seeing that regret,” said Roberts at the 2010 meeting. “I don’t think there are grounds for us to overturn this and after 20 years of processing it’s



time to move on.” Residents, for their part, say opposition to Palma de la Reina is not a NIMBY (not in my back yard) reaction, but just a desire to see a project built on the empty lot that is compatible with Whispering Palms. “There should be a different system whereby a neighborhood like this doesn’t have to go through a 20-year fight… to get some intelligent planning on (this) lot, which everybody wants developed,” said resident Margaret Gooding.

RIBBON continued from page 12 what really happened in their lives as they aren’t easy stories to share. “It’s their courage and honesty that has been resonating with kids all day long,” Hollins said. All assemblies during Red Ribbon Week had between 1,500 to 2,000 students, including a parent whose 21-year-old son and La Costa Canyon graduate died from a heroin overdose in September, and a parent whose daughter died at 22 in a drunk driving accident. One of the speakers, Cameron Clapp, a triple amputee, spoke to about 2,400

students and staff. At 15, after a night of drinking, Clapp passed out on a railroad track and was hit by a freight train and lost both of his legs above his knees and his right arm below his shoulder. Now a motivational speaker, he had a powerful message to share with students about how their decisions can have life-long impacts and about perseverance — how Clapp worked hard to become an amputee athlete and advocate. One teacher, Sarah Morawa, sent a note to Hollins about how incredible the speakers were, remembering when college basketball standout Len Bias’ NBA career was over before it began when he overdosed on cocaine two days after the draft in 1986. “I was an athlete and it scared me to think about how one mistake could cost so much. The news of his death honestly prevented me from ever doing hard drugs,” Morawa said. “Hopefully, some of the stories heard today will do the same for a lot of the kids in the audience.” One parent admitted that it was scary to hear the panelists’ stories, especially because many of them came

from very good homes. How could they prevent the same from happening to their kids? Hollins said nothing can prevent for certain that a kid won’t end up with a drug or alcohol problem, but the best thing parents can do is to keep open communication between them and their children. As Morgan said, it’s a problem if a parent is more attached to their phone than they are to their child. And it’s a problem if they work so much that they forget the value of family. He said there should be an “offswitch” to parents’ professional lives and that time is given to building trust and relationships with their children. Hollins advised parents to pay attention and really listen to their children, spend one- on-one time with them and just be a presence in their lives. “It goes a lot further than we give it credit for,” Hollins said. “We all want to feel like we matter and that people care about us. These kids didn’t feel like they mattered and drugs and alcohol were a way to feel connected. Being a safe harbor for your kids is really important.”

continued from page 10 teams do before the game, including banquets and community service projects where the team painted benches and goalposts in a local park and played with Special Olympics athletes. In the semi-final game, Noble said it was definitely weird playing with her friend on an opposing team, but said Osegueda played “awesome” for Trinity who went on to fall to William Smith in the finals. The Dec. 6 game was Noble’s last hurrah for soccer and it was admittedly very sad. An economics major, she will graduate in the spring and is already looking for jobs. “As of now I hope to enjoy the rest of my senior year as a non-athlete,” Noble said. By “non-athlete” she just means soccer training — Noble won’t stay still for long. She has picked up long distance running and completed her first half-marathon last year. She plans to race another half-marathon in February in New Orleans.

Cygnet Theatre’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ delights all ages BY DIANA SAENGER LET’S REVIEW! Whether a fan of Christmas Past or Christmas Present, theater patrons will find Cygnet’s “A Christmas Carol” a pièce de résistance. Based on Charles Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story, the message-filled tale has been a seasonal favorite in film, books, and on stage ever since it was written in 1843. Everyone knows the story of the hard-working Bob Cratchit, whose boss Ebenezer Scrooge doesn’t believe in Christmas or pay Cratchit enough to take care of his family, which includes the afflicted Tiny Tim. For several years, Cygnet Theatre has produced the play as a live radio show, mimicking those from the 1940s. This year, the Cygnet cast is performing a new adaptation of the story that it promises, “to be light and bright while embracing a fun and festive Christmas spirit.” This time, it’s WCYG Playhouse on the Air. Several microphones are in place for the actors to stand behind as they take on their specific characters. Photos of stars line the walls, and large APPLAUSE signs on both

include Martha Cratchit. Cygnet’s resident artist Melinda Gibb lends her delightful voice to the merriment and fills in for seven characters. Jonathan Dunn-Rankin could have stepped out from a 1940s broadcast as the Announcer, narrator, guest and businessman. Billy Thompson composed the show’s music, and at several junctures, the audience is invited to join in on some of the Christmas songs. The Cygnet staff and crew have left no stone unturned in this delightful production that reminds us to be of goodwill and entertains the young and still-young-at-heart.

In the corner at stage right is Brian Mackey as Sam Hinds, the genius who must add all the special-effect sounds to the songs and dialogue. He not only slams doors, rings bells, stomps on the floor and drags items around, he also physically mimics an action – unseen by the performer — which adds depth to the hilarity. He’s a delight to watch the entire production. All of the actors are terrific. David McBean takes on four characters in the play and is effervescent in all of them. Patrick McBride is excellent as Scrooge’s nephew, Fred, and an older Scrooge. Tom Stephenson is absurdly irreverent as the mean Scrooge, but also gentle as a dandelion, turning a new cheek after his three visions of the future. Maggie Carney reminds one of comedienne Carol Burnett through her amusing repertoire and actions as Fannie Baxtor, among other characters. Melissa Fernandes is precise in her six characters, which

MedCare Specialty Clinics offers comprehensive services BY KRISTINA HOUCK Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It affects 27 million American adults, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For some elderly patients, the prospect of going under anesthesia for an extended period of time and having total knee replacement surgery can be scary, said Richard Manchester, co-founder and chief operating officer of MedCare Specialty Clinics. But by combining components of treatments available, the Carlsbad-based clinic can delay knee replacement options for up to four years, he added. “The degeneration of your joint impacts your mobility and your enjoyment of daily life. Pain is not fun,” Manchester said. “We’re unique because we have a multi-disciplinary approach within the same facility.” MedCare Specialty Clinics is a practice group of board certified medical doctors and licensed physical therapists focused on providing specialized treatments for osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder and other joints, degenerative joint disease, peripheral neuropathy, fibromyalgia, chronic headache, and other pain conditions. For example, MedCare Specialty Clinics offers a six-toeight-week program to decrease pain and increase mobility in osteoarthritis patients. The program’s first step is joint fluid therapy. Using a live motion x-ray imaging device called fluoroscopy, hyaluronic acid is injected in the joint. The solution bonds with the natural joint fluid to help lubricate the joint and restore normal function. Along with a series of injections, physical therapy helps patients regain muscle strength. For knee patients, off-loading bracing using the clinic’s BioniCare Knee System may also be recommended. The clinic’s osteoarthritis program has a 94 percent success rate in decreasing or eliminating joint pain and increas-

Courtesy photos ing mobility without surgery, Manchester said. “Instead of people going to the doctor to get a shot or a pill, we have put together a comprehensive approach of addressing pain aggressively, so that they can go forward and enjoy the mobility that they had to do the things they want to do,” Manchester said. Like the osteoarthritis program, the clinic offers other programs of care that involves both medical procedures and physical therapy regimens. Opened in 2012, MedCare Specialty Clinics is located at 1281 Carlsbad Village Drive in Carlsbad. To schedule a free assessment or make an appointment, call 760-585-7720 or visit for more information.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Executive Chef Saga Horner brings ‘fresh’ to the menu at Zel’s Del Mar BY KRISTINA HOUCK If you order the bison burger or veggie burger at Zel’s Del Mar, you can be assured it will be served on a freshly made bun. Executive Chef Saga Horner makes the brioche buns, as well as tableside ciabatta bread, from scratch every day. “I want this place to be great,” Horner said. “That’s why I’m here.” The Del Mar restaurant opened four years ago, but Horner overhauled the entire menu when he was hired about 18 months ago. From burgers and flatbread pizza, to salads and sandwiches, the San Diego native describes the menu as “American cuisine with world influence.” At the beginning of each season, the restaurant offers a tasting menu so guests can try the latest dishes. The threecourse tasting costs $35. Six months ago, Horner decided the restaurant should serve house-made fresh bread. Now, the Solana Beach resident is adding a homemade cheeseboard to the menu. “The food definitely stands out because everything is made from scratch daily,” Horner said. Next? He plans to brew his own beer. “It’s in the early stages, but it’s going to happen here,” Horner said. “That’s what we want to do — make everything in-house and have it be like an artisan restaurant. I’m a firm believer in the craft.” Horner grew up in Carmel Mountain Ranch. His father is a financial advisor and his mother is a former caterer. Of the five children in the family, Horner was the only one who would frequent the kitchen like his mother. “She has always been my culinary influence,” said

Horner, whose mother, Elizabeth, studied at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. “Growing up, I was the only one in the kitchen all the time. I’ve always had a passion for it.” After graduating from Rancho Bernardo High School and briefly attending Palomar College, Horner enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Portland. He completed a culinary internship at Portland-based McCormick and Schmick’s Harborside at the Marina. Then he worked as a sous chef at Macadam’s Bar & Grill, which he helped launch. “The best thing about Portland — I would go forage my own mushrooms in the woods,” he said. “I would go catch 20-pound steelhead trout out of the river. I’d go to the coast and go crabbing once a week with my fellow culinary students.” Horner brought his love of fresh ingredients to his menus. He helped open La Costa Grill in Carlsbad, where he created the Happy Hour menu and managed the oyster bar. He then became the sous chef of Prepkitchen Del Mar. Horner

was promoted to executive chef three weeks before a fire damaged the restaurant, which reopened a year later. Following a year-long stint at Solace and the Moonlight Lounge in Encinitas, Horner was hired as the executive chef of Zel’s Del Mar. “Every day that I go to work is a challenge, but it is fun,” Horner said. “I feel like I’m so lucky to be able to go to work and enjoy what I’m doing the entire day. “The food is awesome,” he added. “We have such a variety of things on the menu; there’s something for everybody. I think if somebody hasn’t tried Zel’s, they’re missing out.” Zel’s Del Mar is located at 1247 Camino Del Mar.

Volunteers help San Pasqual Academy foster teens celebrate the Holidays When we think of the Holidays, we think of our families and loved ones and being able to spend precious time with them during this meaningful season. Holidays are particularly stressful for foster kids, who are constantly reminded of not being able to be in a traditional setting with family members. They have been placed under protective custody by the Court for various reasons. Abuse, neglect and negative memories have been part of their lives. At San Pasqual Academy, many of these foster teens are able to overcome this cycle of abuse and become productive adults. A special “San Pasqual Academy family” is created: one that provides stability, support, love and guidance. The volunteers of Friends of San Pasqual Academy are a key part of this support system. For over 10 years, the volunteers have been dedicated to providing positive experiences to these foster students. Many lives have been changed as a result of these efforts. The foster teens of San Pasqual Academy celebrated the start of the Holidays with many exciting activities. A festive party for the students was held at the unique school, which is both home and school for the foster teens of San Diego County. Many individuals and organizations donated items and, most importantly, their time and resources to make this Holiday special. The party began with each student receiving a special Christmas stocking that had each student‘s name on them. These beautiful stockings were filled to the brim with wonderful items that were collected and created by Ellie Cunningham and Monica Sheets. Marc and Patty Brutten purchased an Ipod Touch for each student and they also received a school sweatshirt and sweat pants, a beanie, t-shirts and a $100 gift card from Friends of San Pasqual Academy donors. Jennifer Dunn and Stephanie Jensen purchased Itune gift cards for all the students. National Charity League members, coordinated by Teri Summerhays, collected pajama pants for the foster teens. Karen Ventura baked over 500 holiday sugar cookies and Joy Bancroft helped each student decorate these wonderful cookies. Carole Markstein and Ellie Cunningham purchased many wonderful items for the special raffle and along with other raffle gifts, purchased by Friends of San Pasqual Academy, all 118 foster students received a raffle prize. Donna Herrick, once again, collected many beautiful items from Sidestreet Boutique, a unique clothing store in South Lake Tahoe. Hygiene items from Chris Finkelston and hair products from Nina Williams made the foster teens very appreciative of how many people care about them. Friends of San Pasqual Academy provided a delicious lunch to all the students. The tables were decorated by Monica Sheets with ornaments, garland and other holiday items.

Ellie Cunningham is displaying one of the 120 Christmas stockings she created that were filled to the brim with incredible items for the foster teens of San Pasqual Academy.

De Anza Daughters celebrate the season with Christmas Tea The De Anza Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution hosted its annual Christmas Tea and Silent Auction at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club on Dec. 7. Relevant to the day of remembrance, Brian Stokes, member of the San Diego Chapter Sons of the American Revolution, spoke on “Christmas at Pearl Harbor, 1941,” chronicling the attack and effect on Pearl Harbor’s Christmas season. Stokes described the post-strike 17 days leading up to Christmas as dark in many ways, a city blacked out without Christmas lights, the best chefs sent to Japanese-American interment camps, and the Christmas tree shipment from Oregon that failed to arrive. Worse, though, was having to bury the nearly 2,500 who perished from the 90-minute strike on the day of infamy. De Anza member June Cook, 88, attended the tea in the same uniform she wore as a 20-year-old WAVE (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service). June enlisted in the Navy during World War II and served as a hospital corpsman. Bridget Ash was inducted as a new member into the De Anza Chapter by Joanne Dudek, chaplin, and Laurel Lemarié, regent. Bridget’s ancestor, Colonel John Guthrie, was born in 1744 in Pennsylvania of Scotch-Irish parents and served in the 8th Pennsylvania Regiment of the Continental Army. The regiment endured a brutal mid-winter march from Pennsylvania to join George Washington in New Jersey and subsequently fought in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown,

The club’s wreath expert, Shirley Corless, circulated the club patio helping attendees affix fresh clippings, spray-painted leaves, berries, succulents and pinecones to their wire wreath frames. Wreathmakers could choose from a patio full of fragrant and fresh foliage that RSF gardeners generously hauled in from around the Ranch. Inside, club members made big festive bows for the wreaths’ finishing touch. Attendees were encouraged to make a second wreath to donate to RSF Seniors Inc., spreading holiday cheer to homebound seniors. Photos/Karen Billing; For photos online, visit

Superintendent Rick Schmitt plans to update the greater San Dieguito Union High School District community through the local media with a monthly update. Topics covered will include curriculum, facilities, budget, safety, and other specific and special interest topics. Today’s update focuses on the High School Selection Process. BY RICK SCHMITT The San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) serves students in grades 7-12 from the communities of South Carlsbad, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Carmel Valley, and Del Mar. Families from all over the world are attracted to SDUHSD for its stellar reputation, built upon years of educational excellence and high achievement. Our mission is to develop a community of lifelong learners, creative thinkers, and responsible individuals, by providing innovative and top- quality educational programs in a safe and supportive environment. When it comes to providing students with a well-rounded experience encompassing academics, athletics and extra-curricular opportunities, SDUHSD is second to none, with our graduates prepared to pursue higher education at top universities and to pursue fulfilling careers. One of the unique features of SDUHSD is our High School Selection program. Through this process, families in the San Dieguito Union High School District may choose to send their children to any of our four excellent high schools – Canyon Crest Academy (CCA), La Costa Canyon High School (LCCHS), San Dieguito Academy (SDA), or Torrey Pines High School (TPHS). Each of our high schools offers a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum, which differs in unique and distinct ways. We believe that offering students a choice of unique schools helps families select a school that best meets the unique needs of each individual

student. All students in the district live in the attendance area for either Torrey Pines High School or La Costa Canyon High School and are guaranteed attendance at their “boundary school.” Canyon Crest Academy and San Dieguito Academy do not have attendance boundaries and are open on an equal basis to any student residing within our district, regardless of where within the district the student resides. With the High School Selection Process students and families have three options: 1) To attend their boundary school; 2) To apply for an intra-district transfer to attend the other boundary school (either TPHS or LCCHS) – admittance to a boundary school via intra-district transfer is guaranteed unless the school is already at or over capacity; 3) To apply to attend one of the academy schools. Each year all 8th grade students, students new to the district and students wishing to change high schools must declare which of the four high schools they would like to attend through the High School Selection Process. Students may select only one school for attendance. Students currently attending the high school of their choice

do not need to make a new selection unless they wish to c h a n g e schools for the following year. Rick Schmitt Historically, more students have applied to Canyon Crest Academy and San Dieguito Academy than there have been spaces available. When this occurs, a lottery is conducted to determine, in an equitable manner, who is admitted. The lottery is random and students may not earn priority status for any reason other than having a sibling who already attends and will continue to attend Canyon Crest Academy or San Dieguito Academy. If a student applies to attend one of the Academies and is not admitted due to lack of space, that student is automatically enrolled in the “boundary school” of residence (TPHS or LCCHS). For the 2014-15 school year, students will make their selections online beginning at 8 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 3, 2014 through Monday, March 3, 2014 at 4 p.m. If students do not declare which high school they want to attend during this selection window, they will automatically be en-

rolled at their “boundary school” (TPHS or LCCHS). If applications exceed available space at one or both of the Academies, a lottery will be held on Tuesday March 18, 2014 and families will be notified of the results by March 25, 2014. In order to assist students and families in making a thoughtful and informed high school choice, each of our high schools provides information to prospective students online and through campus tours and information nights. For more information about each of our high schools, the High School Selection Process, and SDUHSD go to the district’s website at You can follow Superintendent Schmitt on Facebook, (, and Twitter, (https://twitter. com/SDUHSD_Supt).

Torrey Pines scrum half Bryce Watson digs a ball out of a ruck during the Varsity’s 6412 beat down of High Tech High/Pt. Loma Dec. 14 at Dusty Rhodes Park in Ocean Beach. Teammates Dany Schevchenko, David Groesbeck, and Patrick Foran lean into the pile. Dean Karam (upper right) was named man of the match with 17 tackles and many timely line breaks (runs). Jake Goena, a senior inside center, scored two tries on hard, physical runs. Wing Devin Slubowski showed superior speed in outrunning the High Tech High defense to score the Varsity’s first three tries. Newcomer Brad Chapman got his first start ever at flanker. “I was very impressed with the backline attack today,” said Head Coach Matty Sandoval. “The forwards need to pick up their end of things.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Some Naughty Noel Noshes

The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Christmas brings a bounty of seasonal goodies to our tables from the much-lampooned fruitcake to close cousins of stollen and panettone. Here’s a decadent sampling of traditional holiday favorites from fruit to nuts. The edible paperweight “There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other.” — Johnny Carson Food historians trace the origins of fruitcake to ancient Egypt where relatives were believed to place the dense, nutrient-rich treat on the tombs of their dearly departed for nourish-

ment in the afterlife. The Romans honed the recipe adding pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and barley mash, sending the portable fortification with soldiers off to battle. Over the centuries, the fruitcake recipe was tweaked to include preserved Mediterranean fruits, luxurious spices and alcohol, creating a high-octane indulgence. Today fruitcake has become deeply ensconced in our Christmas culture, razzed for its doorstop density and lengthy shelf life, so it can be re-gifted the following Christmas. All kidding aside, the next generation of fruitcake (no longer your grandmother’s version) is lighter, fresher and healthier with honey and sucanat instead of white sugar and high-fructose corn syrup, whole wheat pastry flour rather than refined white, and dried and fresh fruits, including cherries, dates, pineapple, plums and apricots trumping syrupy preserved neon nuggets. Grandma also didn’t have fair trade organic rum to dial up her fruitcake. Toni’s treat Panettone is Italy’s airier, virgin riff on fruitcake in the form of a cylindrical cupola-shaped sweet bread.

HOME OF THE WEEK 311 Pacific Solana Beach

Perched high on the hill and serenaded by the soothing sound of the waves, this extraordinary oceanfront home offers glorious, 180 degree eagle’s eye views of the mighty Pacific, all the way from Oceanside to La Jolla. The home’s western view entertainment is 24-7, from wind surfers to dolphins, from Table Tops reef to tide pools, and each day ending with a spectacular sunset! The floor plan of this single level beach bungalow is very smart, with the kitchen, living areas and master bedroom all enjoying the fabulous ocean views, and for those with a desire or need for a fourth bedroom, the homeowner has already had architectural plans drawn for a beautiful, additional upper level master suite. Fully seawalled and protected for decades to come, this bluff-top home with large back patio is great for entertaining friends, or simply enjoying a serene and intimate personal retreat. Take an easy walk to great restaurants, the beach, or the Cedros Design Center, or hop on the Coaster downtown to enjoy all the excitement that San Diego has to offer! Don’t miss this rare opportunity!

Offered at $2,650,000

Many versions of this traditional Christmas cake contain an assortment of delights, including candied orange and lemon peel, dried cranberries and bittersweet chocolate chunks. The panettone is also swathed in romanticism with a 15th century Milanese legend about Ughetto Atellani, a nobleman who fell in love with Adalgisa, the daughter of a poor baker named Toni. To help her father’s struggling bakery business (and spend more time with his sweetie), Ughetto disguised himself as a baker boy working in Toni’s kitchen. Selling his prized falcons to earn money for costly ingredients, he bought butter, raisins and candied citron, and whipped up an indulgent concoction to outshine the competition. His devotion to Adalgisa earned him marital blessings by the Duke of Milan. Their extravagant wedding with such notable guests as Leonardo da Vinci, also served the new fruity cake dubbed, “Pan de Toni” — the bread of Toni. Today more than 50 million panettones are baked in Italy every Christmas, imported worldwide for all to enjoy. One word of panettone warning: steer clear of margarine, vegetable short-

ening and other artery-clogging trans fats. Almond Joy Marzipan, the quintessential Christmas confection, is a scrumptious blend of almond meal or paste, confectioner’s sugar or honey and almond oil. No one country lays a solid claim to its creation, although Toledo in central Spain, which is full of almond trees, is a logical birthplace. In Europe the making of marzipan is strictly governed by a body of laws, for example, almonds must comprise no less than 50 percent of the total weight. Holiday traditions in all parts of Europe include molding marzipan into miniature fruits and decorating them with food coloring. Marzipan is a hidden treat found in assorted pastries, or a magnificent icing for seasonal cakes. Log On

A German hybrid of fruitcake, panettone and marzipan is the stollen log, aka Christstollen with a motherload of dried fruits and nuts, orange and lemon zest, cinnamon and cardamom. It is light in texture and low in sugar, although traditionally dusted with powdered sugar. This holiday sweet has a delightful rope of marzipan enlivening the center. The original stollen was spartan and dry, as it was baked for the Advent season, a period of fasting and deprivation. As such, bakers were forbidden to use butter in the recipe. In medieval Saxony, members of the nobility appealed to the Pope to repeal laws prohibiting the use of butter in stollen. Eventually, the butter ban was removed and stollen evolved into a richer pastry.

Rancho Santa Fe Review


no snack mom bringing in delicious treats at the end of the game. It was simple. As I stood out in the freezing cold weather this weekend, with wind ripping straight to my bones, chapping my face, I couldn’t help but think to myself, “The things we do for our kids.” I mean seriously, I didn’t even watch the games from the car because that would have been totally lame. I don’t know about you, but I had no idea that Las Vegas could get that cold. I was so miserable (from being at the field from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.), that I went directly to our room, took a hot bath, and never left my bed for the rest of the night. I mean, come on people, this is Vegas, one of my all-time favorite places, and I didn’t even play one table! Our kids just have no clue what we do for them. Call me crazy, but I would do it again. At the end of the day, it’s fun. We get to spend quality time together as a family, our kids get to experience different places, and, overall, it’s pretty cool. I need to call my mom back and tell her, “Mom, you were right — our generation is totally crazy and we wouldn’t have it any other way.” Your thoughts?

Rant with Randi: What we do for our kids BY RANDI CRAWFORD I was on the phone with my mom last week and she was mad because we haven’t spoken much over the past few weeks. I apologized, and explained to her that we didn’t have any free time. After all, why would we? For the past several weeks, my family has been on the road with our kids for their respective sports. As I was telling this to my mom, she lectured me: “Randi, all my friends and I think you and your generation are crazy. I remember complaining when we had to travel 10 minutes away for your soccer games, but your generation takes sports to a whole new level. Why can’t you just enjoy letting your kids be kids? Why don’t you just say ‘no,’ and don’t go to Vegas this weekend? In fact, they need to slow down and call their grandmother once in a while. Trust me, it’s not just your family, it’s all of my friends who have grandkids.” When I hung up, I realized that she had a point. My kids are terrible about calling her. Then I had a quick chuckle at the thought of telling my kids that the Vegas trip was cancelled because Grandma said, “We have to take a little break”... that would have gone over really well, especially with my son...not! But while I was in my yoga that morning, reflecting on my intention (like they tell you to do), it occurred to me that she had a point. I mean, what kid should be too busy to call their grandparents? That’s unacceptable and I’m going to make a concerted effort to change that. The travel situation is definitely intense, and sometimes we are exhausted, but it is what it is. I don’t want this article to be about the insane expectations that come with youth sports, but it’s nearly impossible to avoid discussing. Kids that play sports, and want to be really good, do whatever they have to in order to stay on top. Some kids spend hours with trainers and personal coaches, others pick a sport early on and drop everything else, and some kids are on several teams at the same time, running from one tournament to the next. I grew up playing one sport per season, we never traveled, we had one practice per week, and my parents never stuck around to watch. There definitely was
