Student council celebrates year of giving back R. Roger Rowe School students present checks to several nonprofits BY KAREN BILLING The R. Roger Rowe School’s Community Service Learning program celebrated a year’s worth of giving back to the community with a special assembly on May 24. At the assembly, the middle school student council presented checks to various nonprofits the council raised funds for throughout the year. Assistant Principal Paul Coco said the students did a great job representing their school by donating their “time, talent and treasure” and learning the importance of philanthropy. This year the students held a canned food drive for Feed America; collected 200 books in a book drive for the Monarch School for homeless youth; held a hot dog cookout and newspaper and

Rancho Santa Fe was recently well represented, coming in No. 1 and No. 2 in cookie sales out of 16,000 Girl Scouts in San Diego. Roni Nelson, right, and Melissa Thomas, left, were Nos. 1 and 2 in cookie sales respectively for the Girl Scouts of San Diego Council. Roni sold 4,571 boxes to be the top seller for the second year in a row, and Melissa sold 3,450 boxes to be the second top seller. They are members of Troop 1095 in RSF. The girls were honored on May 4 for their achievement by Girl Scouts of San Diego during the 2013 Operation Thin Mint ceremony aboard the USS Midway. The ceremony also marked the sending of thousands of boxes of Operation Thin Mint cookies to U.S. military stationed overseas. PHOTO COURTESY OF GIRL SCOUTS SAN DIEGO

Thoroughbred training facility in RSF to close BY JOE TASH Rancho Paseana, a training facility for thoroughbred horses owned by Jenny Craig, will close its doors on May 31. Craig, best known for the weight-loss company she founded, was traveling and unavailable for comment. But a spokeswoman confirmed that the 228-acre facility on San Dieguito

Road in Rancho Santa Fe will close its doors. The property is in escrow to an unnamed buyer, and it is unknown what the new owner’s plans are, the spokeswoman said. According to online real estate sources, the property was listed for sale in 2010 for $29.95 million, and the price was later reduced to $24.95 million.

The property was originally developed by former San Diego Chargers owner Gene Klein and his trainer, D. Wayne Lukas, in the mid1980s. It includes a seasonal stream and 3/4-mile race track. The Craigs purchased the property in 1995. Nearly all of the horses that were boarded at the facility have been returned to their owners in preparation

Experts emphasize suicide prevention during TPHS Yellow Ribbon Week BY KAREN BILLING Of the 38,634 Americans who took their lives last year, 5,000 of them were teenagers. With that troubling trend in mind, Torrey Pines High School held Yellow Ribbon Week during the week of May 20 to promote suicide prevention among teenagers and to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness, such as depression. The Yellow Ribbon program was started in 1994 in memory of

people. Leticia Castellanos, the librarian at Monarch School, was caught off guard by the donation at Friday’s assembly. She had no idea that she would be receiving books that day. “This is an amazing surprise,” Castellanos said. “The kids will be very excited.” Renee Resko, director of development at Helen Woodward, brought Charlie, a three-month-old puppy up for adoption along with her to accept the students’ contribution. “We couldn’t do what we do without you guys,” Resko told the students. “You guys are an example for other kids in the community.”

17-year-old Michael Emme, who took his life because he didn’t know how to let someone know he was in trouble or how to ask for help. On campus, yellow ribbons were everywhere, students wore yellow t-shirts that said “Be strong” and an art installation near the center of campus showed a circle of yellow sticks placed into the ground, each representing a state and the number of suicides that took place in each state last

year. At the center was a broken stick with the words “Break the Cycle.” Of all the states, California had the most deaths with 3,913. The week of awareness and inspiration was led by the Peer Assistant Listeners (PALs) group and its advisor Don Hollins, who also the independent study and online learning lab facilitator. “The message is an important one and not one that students hear every day,” Hollins said.

During the week students also received “Be a Link” cards. The cards had numbers for San Diego’s 24-hour crisis hotline and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The card is also a communication tool that students use to ask for help. See SUICIDE, page 19

Their horse, Chocolate Candy, finished fifth in the 2009 Kentucky Derby. Another of their horses, Candy Ride, won the 2003 Pacific Classic.

RSF’s Susan Hoehn joins Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego Board of Trustees

Ava Thorpe and Jenna Shapiro

RSF best friends tops at recent trampoline championships Rancho Santa Fe BFF’s Ava Thorpe and Jenna Shapiro recently won big at State and Regional T & T (Tumbling and Trampoline) Championships. Having just returned from the Las Vegas Regional Championships, Ava won the Regional Championship in trampoline where Jenna took third in their own divisions. Ironically, in April, Jenna won the State Championship in trampoline and Ava took third respectively. The girls train at Bounce, California where coaches Glen (the first U.S. collegiate trampoline champion), Phi (a local champion gymnast from Poway), Steve and Susan train a team of kids, including Elite competitors. The girls are at the gym at least three times per week and daily in the weeks before competitions. They go to school together, train together and play together. You will find them upside down more than right side up…doing leaps, round-offs, ballet, and dance wherever they go, including the beach, the play-zones like Skyzone, or even hallways of hotels. Next up, they head to Kansas City, Missouri to compete in the Junior Olympics, National Championships.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego recently welcomed several new board of trustees members to guide the organization on its mission to provide supportive services, including food and lodging, to families with a critically ill or injured child being treated at a local hospital. “The Ronald McDonald House depends on hundreds of volunteers to serve thousands of meals each week and keep the 47-bedroom facility running smoothly, and it relies on a handful of dedicated individuals to provide guidance as members of the board of trustees,” said Doug Dawson, chair of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego board of trustees. “Our board has recently expanded and we’re delighted to have visionary philanthropists and unstoppable business minds join the team.” Among the new trustees is RSF resident Susan Hoehn, a philanthropist and owner

community’s needs and motivations will help the Ronald McDonald House remain top of mind among key supporters, ultimately helping the 12,500 family members who rely on the Ronald McDonald House each year for food, lodging and other supportive services,” according to Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “Each member of our board of trustees dedicates their time, talent and resources to our House, enabling us to focus on how we may best serve the families who need us,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “This group of individuals has a range of knowledge and experience to bring to the table and we look forward to learning from them for years to come.” To learn more, visit www.rmhcsd.org.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Tale of four women explores life in modern India BY JOE TASH Friendship and lies. Idealism and desperation. Tradition and fundamentalism. These themes swirl through “The World We Found,” the latest novel by author Thrity Umrigar. The story centers on four women who attended college together in Bombay in the 1970s, then drifted apart as they married, had children and pursued careers. The four friends try to reconnect in middle age when one member of the group is diagnosed with a brain tumor, and her dying wish is a final reunion. Umrigar was the featured speaker at the May 20 meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society, held at The Grand Del Mar resort in Carmel Valley. A native of India, she immigrated to the United States at age 21 to attend graduate school at Ohio State University. After college, she worked as a journalist in Ohio for nearly two decades before launching a second career as a novelist. She now divides her time between writing and teaching creative writing at Case Western University in Cleveland. “The World We Found,” which was pub-

lished in 2012, is her fifth novel, and she has also published a memoir. A phone call from America sets the tone of the novel. Armaiti, one of the four friends, had moved to the U.S. long before, but she calls to let her old school pals know of her cancer diagnosis. The other three friends, Laleh, Kavita and Nishta, still live in Bombay. Laleh and Kavita set out to find Nishta, who has dropped out of their lives, to relay the bad news. The two friends reminisce about their college years, when they sought to change the world and marched in protests and rallies. “How her father used to scoff at her and Armaiti when they would talk about building a better country,” Laleh recalled. “’A new India?’ Rumi Madan would thunder at the dinner table after listening to the two teenagers talk matter-of-factly about the imminent revolution. ‘What do you girls think this is, a school play? What ‘new India’ are you two going to build? Darlings, if there is to be a new India, it will be built by the politicians and the businessmen. Above all, the businessmen. Not by a

PHOTO/MCKENZIE IMAGES couple of little girls pretending to be revolutionaries.’” Like her character, Umrigar fought her own battles with her father, who owned a factory that made wooden doors and windows. Bowing to her father’s wishes, she studied business in college, but she drew the line when her father wanted her to join the family business. Instead, she headed to America to study and carry out her dream of becoming a journalist. While her father taught her many valuable life lessons, when it came to her

career choice, she said, “I’m very glad that was one battle I won and he did not.” Otherwise, she said, both father and daughter would have been miserable, and probably would not have enjoyed such a close relationship over the years. The idea for the novel came when Umrigar was on a visit to India in 2010, and she met a college friend she hadn’t seen for 25 years. Umrigar asked if the woman was still politically active, and the woman replied that after a vicious bout of Hindu-Muslim rioting in Mumbai in the early 1990s,

she had lost her desire to advocate for social change, and had instead turned her focus on taking care of her family. The riots had a similar impact on a central character in the novel, a Muslim man named Iqbal, who married Nishta, a Hindu and one of the four friends. Nishta’s family disowned her after the marriage, and Iqbal’s embrace of religious fundamentalism — and accompanying maltreatment of his wife — is one of the key plotlines. When Laleh and Kavita visit Nishta and ask her to travel to America with them to see the dying Armaiti, Iqbal forbids Nishta to make the trip, and goes as far as to confiscate her cell phone so her friends can’t call her. Although India is evolving in many ways, from its economic life to its social mores, it remains a traditional culture, where children, even adults, accede to the wishes of their parents, and men hold antiquated ideas about women, Umrigar said. “India is stuck between modern values and Victorian values,” she said. Other themes of the book include the willingness of people to violate

their own core beliefs to get what they want, and the way that youthful idealism gives way to weary pragmatism as we age. Umrigar compared the personal evolution of her characters to the fiery struggles of the civil rights and women’s movements in the United States in the ‘60s and ’70s, which transformed to a more inwardlooking focus by the ‘80s and ’90s. “That daily grind of life, what you have to do to earn a living, it begins to wear you down,” she said. Also at the Literary Society meeting, the winners of the group’s annual essay contest were announced: Kirsten Waltz won first place, Kira Elliott took second, and Annie Goodstein placed third. All three students are juniors who attend San Dieguito Academy. The three students won cash prizes, Kindles and gift cards. Look for photos from this Literary Society event in the next issue of the RSF Review (June 6). The Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society is sponsored by Northern Trust, the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center and the Rancho Santa Fe Review.

RSF resident Wendy Hill in the running for Ms. Senior California BY DIANE Y. WELCH Wendy Hill of Rancho Santa Fe says that she embraces each day as though she will live to be 1,000 years old, even though she knows she won’t. It’s a philosophy that resonated with judges in the recent preliminary Ms. Senior Pageant contests when Hill became Ms. Senior Conejo Valley at the pageant held in Thousand Oaks last month. The competition is open to American women 60 years of age and up who have reached the “age of elegance.” Hill, a professional hypnotherapist and psychotherapist, said that competing in the pageants has brought a whole new level of experience to her life. “It challenges me in many, many ways, not just in terms of winning the competition, but also when I lose. It enables me to understand that this isn’t anything about me personally, my worthiness is intact no matter what the outcome.” Contestants, who are typically very young and vital in their attitude and behavior, as well as very talented, compete in four categories which include an interview with the five judges, gown modeling, sharing a philosophy of life, and performing a talent, explained Hill. For her performance, Hill sang “Cabaret,” a version that she arranged musically to fit the two minutes and 45-second time limit. “If the song exceeds [the time limit] you will be disqualified,” she said. In 2005, Hill was crowned Ms. Senior West Los Angeles then she returned to compete last year. The seven-year hiatus allowed her to hone her personality “To learn the lessons that come with a competition like this,” she said. “Lessons of self growth.” The women who enter the pageants are very supportive of each other. There is a sense of sisterhood among them, said Hill. “There are deep friendships that get forged, we are there for each other whether we win or not.” Peggy Padilla, Ms. Senior California of 2009, and a member of the pageant’s Board of Directors, is one such friend. She said that Wendy is an outstanding competitor. “She’s tall, has a great figure, beautiful long dark hair, has a lovely face and very pretty eyes. She looks 20 years younger than she actually is.” And she said that Hill’s work as a ther-

It’s amazing what 30 years of growing up can lead to. Wendy Hill was named Ms. Senior Conejo Valley at the pageant held in Thousand Oaks last month. COURTESY PHOTO apist makes her very personable. “So when it comes to the judges’ interview she does very well.” Padilla commented that Hill looks gorgeous in a gown, whether it is a prom gown or a long, sleek evening gown. And her talent as a singer shines, she said. Hill, a third generation Californian, said that her own family doesn’t understand why she enters these pageants. “They think it is some kind of narcissistic beauty contest and, in fact, many people have that attitude. But for me it is another form of a challenge and a test for my own development.” In line with this self growth, Hill is close to completing her Ph.D. in counseling. But it’s the competition of the pageant that helps keep Hill, “Alive, creative, active and feeling young,” she stressed. Residents of California who fit entry criteria are able to compete at any one of eight preliminary state-wide pageants. Winners and the runners-up advance to compete for the title of Ms. Senior California, which this year will be held at the Rose Center Theater in Westminster, Calif., on Aug. 31. Winners at the state level go on to compete for Ms. Senior America in Atlantic City. For more information, visit http:// www.mssrcalifornia.com/

The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe Education Matters/Opinion Solana Beach school board approves full now welcoming Junior members day kindergarten for Global Education

Local golfers under the age of 40 have a unique opportunity to join The Bridges at Rancho Santa Fe in a new membership category. For a limited time, individuals under the age of 40 may join the club as Junior golf members, entitled to the same use privileges as Equity golf members. The current initiation fee for Junior members is $35,000. Junior golf members will also pay reduced monthly dues, commensurate with their age. “The idea of giving a price break to younger golfers has been percolating for years, so we finally put it to a vote,” said General Manager Sean McCune. “Our longtime members are excited to welcome a new generation of golfers into the club.” The Bridges Club is currently ranked as the best in San Diego and the 15th among top golf venues in California by Golf Digest magazine. In January, the practice facility was honored as one of the “Top 50 Ranges” for a private facility in the United States by the Golf Range Association of America. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., this

iconic North San Diego Country Club is famous for its signature collection of unusually engineered and beautiful bridges, including the two 285-foot-long stress-ribbon bridges that span dramatic ravines, 85 feet in the air. Since opening in 1999, the 6,965yard championship course has hosted such prestigious events as The Battle at the Bridges, a nationally-televised skins game that attracted the likes of Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods. Golf membership at The Bridges includes privileges at a new $5 million Tennis & Recreation Centre as well as a state-of-theart Sports Centre. With 11 unique menus served at four dining facilities, The Bridges puts a premium on the culinary arts. This summer, The Bridges will host the American Junior Golf Association’s 2013 Wyndham Cup, an annual team competition that attracts the nation’s top 40 junior golfers in an East-versus-West team match play tournament.

Marsha Sutton BY MARSHA SUTTON The Solana Beach School District’s Board of Education stood firmly behind SBSD superintendent Nancy Lynch and her controversial decision to extend the kindergarten day in the district’s Global Education program next year, by voting to support the change from modified day to full day. However, because the decision to implement full day was announced after parents had already chosen Global Ed for their children, there were some concessions.

The board voted to offer an optional modified day with its 1:15 p.m. dismissal through the end of December, shifting all students starting in January 2014 to full day and a 3 p.m. dismissal. Board members also voted to hold a seat open for the 2014-2015 school year for parents who wish to hold their kids back one year. “Parents who feel their children aren’t ready for the full day can do the modified until winter break,” Lynch said. For parents who feel that still isn’t enough time and want a whole year of modified, their kids can start kindergarten in the program next year. Lisa Denham, principal of Skyline School in Solana Beach where Global Ed is located, said the board’s compromise was a workable solution. The vote was four board members in favor and one, board president Rich Leib, opposed. Because of the late notice given to incoming kindergarten families, Leib preferred an optional modified day for the entire 2013-2014 school year rather than half the year. All five board members, however, supported making the Global Education kindergarten program full day for all students beginning with the 2014-2015 school year. Discussion on this issue at the May 23 board meeting lasted several hours, with about 100 people in attendance and 16 speakers, 15 of whom spoke in favor of the modified day and one speaker in favor of full day.

CCA Outreach Club brings joy of dance to elementary school students BY DIANE Y. WELCH Four years ago when Mercedes Forster was a freshman at Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) she had the idea to share her passion for dance and to give back to her community by teaching dance classes to elementary school children. It was an idea born from both an influence of a being raised in a “very giving family” and being immersed in an excellent arts program, she said. “I felt so fortunate to come to CCA where they have Envision, a brilliant arts education program and the more intense conservatory program. Then I began to think about other schools that just don’t have any funding for the arts. And I thought that I could do something to help.” Mercedes approached her dance teacher, Rayna Stohl, dance director at CCA, about the concept. Stohl told Mercedes, “Go for it!” she said. After the logistics were formulated and adult chaperones made available, Mercedes founded Outreach Club with Genna McGrath, Bora Yoon, Guillermo Castro and Chloe Chelf. This class enabled CCA students to take time out of the school day to teach second graders off campus. Karen Curl – the mother of Emily Curl, a CCA dance conservatory alumni – who is a second

grade teacher at Pioneer Elementary School in Escondido, agreed to take the necessary steps to secure the permissions to allow high school students to teach at the school. The elementary school’s students are predominantly English as a second language (ESL) learners and use a program called Total Physical Response (TPR), which teaches English vocabulary

in a tangible, physical way. Dance fit perfectly into this method, said Curl, and evidence shows that the students’ test scores have improved since TPR has been integrated into their curriculum. To showcase the second graders’ new-found dance skills, a music video was shot which brought in CCA students from cinema conservatory. Used in the

video is the music of Alex Kajitani, famed for his math rap videos that teach mathematic vocabulary. When the video is completed it may be viewed on Kajitani’s website. Curl said her students were very excited about the dance classes with the CCA students. “I saw some boys, in the beginning who were very hesitant, but as

time went on they really looked forward to the sessions.” The elementary school is in a high poverty area, said Curl, “And because dance is an art form that you can do without having a lot of money it is perfect for our kids.” This was one of the main reasons why Mercedes chose that school. “I wanted to bring it to kids who really have no other option,” she said. The program has been a source of deep satisfaction for Mercedes who said that she loves interacting with the students, many of whom come from stressful households. “I get a lot of joy out of thinking that I can come in for one day a week and help them have fun, relax, unwind and express who they are.” Outreach Club will continue its partnership with Pioneer next year with Guillermo Castro as the leader. Mercedes will attend UC Berkeley in the fall, where she plans to double major in dance and biology. Madison Rhodes, Alyssa Cochran and Lissette Argoud were other CCA students who participated in the club, which is thriving. “There is talk about it expanding to all of the art forms at CCA,” said Stohl. The music video featuring the Pioneer Elementary School students will be online soon at www.alexkajitani.com

RSF resident’s nonprofit to partner with Meals on Wheels for ‘Fishing for Charity’ event BY KAREN BILLING Fish. Food. Feel Good (F3G), a nonprofit started by Rancho Santa Fe resident Todd Bluechel, is partnering with Meals-onWheels San Diego for a Fishing for Charity event. On Aug. 6-8, a Fishing for Charity trip will take place on a luxury sport-fishing boat. The event aims to raise $20,000 and catch the necessary fish to feed San Diegans in need. F3G is an organization that collects unwanted or extra fish from sport fishermen and boat crews for distribution to local charities. During the past year, Meals-on-Wheels has been the recipient of almost 15,000 pounds of fish providing protein for 30,000 meals for the seniors meals on Wheels serves. Other charities benefiting from F3G donations include Father Joe’s Villages, San Diego Rescue Mission, Samoa Independent

and the San Diego Food Bank. “When I designed F3G I felt it important to create a simple program, a program people will want to see and replicate in their home town, a program that can, in fact, be replicated anywhere sport fishermen catch fish,” said Bluechel. August’s Fishing for Charity trip will involve 28 fishermen and they hope to catch as much as they did in 2011; the most productive one-and-a-half day fishing trip all year. Unique to this year’s event, the fishermen will raise funds of their own to match a $10,000 title sponsorship from Sycuan Casino. To donate to the cause, visit sdmealsonwheels.ejoinme.org/fishingforcharity. To learn more about F3G or the fundraising event, visit http://www.f3g.org/

SUICIDE continued from page 1 Hollins said that teenagers have the ability to recognize their own power in helping their friends and classmates. “Statistically we need to break the cycle, have the courage to say ‘I need help’ and the courage to reach out to people who need that help,” Hollins said. About 1,800 students attended six different assemblies with a variety of presenters. Presenters included Anna Collins, a Harvard MBA graduate and Amazon executive who spoke about the tools for handling stress and failure; transpersonal psychotherapist Dr. Dorothy Gita Moreno, the greatgranddaughter of Frank L.

on your yellow brick road”; Jim Greer, the director of UMTR2ME, who talked about how he built a successful life following an unsuccessful suicide; and Bonnie Bear, the executive director of Survivors of Suicide Loss. Students also listened to Johnny Rivera, the successful restaurateur behind Hash House A Go Go, Tractor Room and Great Maple Restaurant, on how he coped with the demise of his Plan A and turned Plan B into success he never could have imagined. Rivera, a native San Diegan, aspired to be a rock n’ roll star. He bypassed college and went out on tour with his band and felt like he was on his way to his dream — his band signed with a record company, opening for acts such as the Clash and Devo. But a musician’s life is not an easy one, a life that

Rivera said is often filled with failure as the reality is that only 1 percent of bands really make it big. He was eventually dropped from his record label and that failure led him to drink too much and do “a lot of things he shouldn’t.” He said it was the lowest of the low and he saw his friends become addicted to heroin, go to prison, go through divorces and be content to be unemployed when rock n’ roll did not pan out. As he neared age 29, he decided he couldn’t let his failure to become a success in music destroy the rest of his life. He shook the idea that he was worthless without music; didn’t “stay at the party too long,” found his “authentic self” and worked his “Plan B.” “I am a street fighter, I made it through,” Rivera said. He had always been interested in the restaurant

business and decided to throw himself entirely into starting his own restaurant. He worked three jobs, lived in the smallest place he could afford, sold his car and maxed out credit cards. “People told me the restaurant business is so hard but it’s not like music,” Rivera said. He found a new way to express himself and infused a rock n’ roll “twisted” attitude into Hash House A Go Go, with heaping portions of fun farm food. The restaurant opened in 2000 and the concept immediately caught people’s attention. Hash House now has nine locations, including spots in Chicago, Orlando and Connecticut, and it is the only San Diego restaurant chain to hit Las Vegas. Rivera also opened downtown’s Tractor Room, which specializes in “honest cock-

tails and meats,” while his newest eatery, Great Maple, specializes in seasonal produce, responsible seafood and farm fresh American meat in a “European dinette” setting. Great Maple has a second location in Newport Beach. “Plan B doesn’t have to be a negative,” Rivera said. Rivera said that, as with anything, you have to put in the work to accomplish your goals. He said if you do anything at 50 percent, you’ll get a 50 percent yield — the reason why he has taken two days off since Christmas and has plans to expand his restaurant lines even further. “I don’t know how to stop swinging until I hear the bell,” he said. He told the teens that it hasn’t always been easy, he had a restaurant close in Kansas City, but he looks at it as losing a battle not the whole war. He said the key is

keeping perspective, knowing that you can survive your mistakes and turn negatives into positives. That was one of the messages of Yellow Ribbon Week, to keep moving and stay on the path to living a healthy lifestyle. A mural designed by PALs on campus had a painting of a yellow brick road that invited students to write their hopes, dreams and aspirations on the bricks of the road. ‘There’s no substitute for living a great life and loving life for suicide prevention,” Hollins said. Hollins said the mural created a feeling of unity among the students and serves as a reminder of the potential for joy every day. “If you continue to move in the same direction, you will end up where you’re headed,” Hollins said to the teens. “Is that a warning or a promise? It’s both.”

Lifeboats, which helps restock libraries and school materials lost in the New York area due to Hurricane Sandy. “The work that you do is reaching out all over the globe,” Cassarino said. “This student council has done an amazing job, working hard to make the school better but also make the

world a better place.” As an added boost, the middle schoolers’ efforts were matched in funds and in hands-on help from Dave Baker and Steve Knight who run the Philanthropy Club Foundation through the Coastal Community Foundation. As local philanthropists, Baker and Knight

started the Philanthropy Club as a way to help children learn about the art of giving. The pair not only helped plan events at Rowe (they cooked close to 200 hot dogs at the hot dog cookout) but they contributed $5,000 to the students’ causes. Typically, Knight and Baker work with third

graders and this was their first middle school program. Paired with local schools such as Solana Highlands in Carmel Valley and Solana Vista in Solana Beach, their organization has helped over 30 non-profits throughout San Diego. “These guys just rose to the top of the heap,”

Knight said of Rowe students. “They did an incredible job this year.” “I can’t wait for next year’s project,” Baker said. Knight said that the Philanthropy Club program is looking to expand into even more local schools. For more information, contact the foundation at (760) 942-9245.

“This makes me want to go back to school!” was the resounding and repeated comment from parents at Horizon Prep Open House Night. Students were enthusiastic tour guides to family and friends, highlighting what they have learned throughout the school year. The Lion’s Den Gym was transformed into a world of science with special exhibits from the Middle School ACSI Science Fair, You Be the Chemist competition, and the Human Body. Experiments jumped off the trifold boards as students incorporated QR codes complete with video lessons. Middle School students, equipped with iPads, were on hand to assist visitors. Students took visitors around the country as they showed off their State Reports, then took them back in time to visit the Revolution, and then gave them a glimpse of the future with the Invention Convention.

Family recipes make for Double Happiness BY KELLEY CARLSON he name of Del Mar’s most established Chinese restaurant, Double Happiness, apparently has double meaning. According to owner Deguo Li, it received its moniker for the two cooking styles it uses — Mandarin and Szechwan. The former is characterized by its yin-and-yang method (sweet with sour, crispy with smooth) with contrasts of aromas and colors; the latter features bold and spicy flavors, prominently using ingredients such as ginger and peanuts. But it seems the establishment’s name also applies to the general mood of the staff and customers. “Every day, all day, we’re happy,” Li said with a smile. One reason could be the calming atmosphere. The tone is set with soft, relaxing music tinged with Asian influences. Large paintings (some with bold accents and others with muted tones) grace the

On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at delmartimes.net Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story.

■ This week’s recipe: Double Happiness’ Lemon Sauce for Chicken walls of the dining room, depicting nature scenes with birds, butterflies, fish, and flora and fauna. Flowers serve as accents and wooden lanterns carved with Chinese

symbols cast a golden glow while suspended from bamboo poles that crisscross the ceiling. The covered patio has a festive touch, with its large, red balloon-style lanterns and lights strung along the windows, yet it’s still quietly casual. Another cause for customers’ content: Many of the dishes are prepared from family recipes and are pleasing to palates, as quite a number of patrons have become loyal fans through the years. Dedicated customers have faithfully lauded Double Happiness, which has subsequently won awards from publications throughout the area, including Readers’ Choice honors for Best Chinese by Del Mar Times readers. Among the favorites are Fried Dumpling Pot Stickers, which are thick and filled with meat; the Hunan Beef, centered on top of a bed of rice and encircled by broccoli; Honey Walnut Shrimp with sweet and nutty flavors; and Buddha’s Delight, a vegetable medley of pea pods, cabbage, broccoli, baby

corn, carrots and mushrooms, lightly covered with a stir-fry sauce. Other popular dishes include the Crispy Garlic Shrimp, Orange Peel Chicken, and the Double Happiness (Shrimp and Scallop) served on a sizzling platter. Dishes can be adjusted upon request, and portions are ideal for family-style dinners. Smaller, all-inclusive meals are offered from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, in the form of lunch specials. The Luncheon Deluxe is served with an entree, fried rice, an egg roll, a wonton and a fortune cookie. “We want people to come for the fresh food and fresh quality,” Li said. During the summer, Double Happiness hosts much of the racetrack crowd, some of whom may notice a photo of popular former racehorse Lava Man autographed by jockey Corey Nakatani near the doorway. Both locals and tourists alike find its location convenient in the Del Mar Village area, only a few blocks from the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

The San Diego County Wine Festival will take place on Saturday, June 15, with over 100 award-winning Cali-

Kathleen Loftman addresses De Anza DAR in ‘Widow’s Weeds’ Wearing “widow’s weeds,” Kathleen Loftman presented a captivating program on “Mourning and Mourning Jewelry” at the monthly luncheon meeting of the De Anza Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution held May 5 at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. Loftman is the chapter registrar and Executive Vice President and Director of Program Execution for SAIC in San Diego. “A widow was expected to remain in mourning for over two years in 19th century Victorian England,” Loftman said in relating the proper attire for the three phases of Victorian mourning. Women without means and children to support were allowed to remarry after full mourning, but resumed wearing black clothing after the wedding. Widowers usually mourned for two years, but had discretion when to remarry as he might have young children to rear. Full mourning lasted a year and a day. Clothing was dull black cloth without ornament and a full black crepe weeping veil. The nine-month long second mourning allowed minor fabric trim ornamentation and mourning jewelry, still with lusterless cloth, and the veil was lifted and worn back over the head. Elderly widows, including Queen Victoria, frequently remained in second mourning the rest of their lives. In the subsequent half mourning period, more elaborate fabrics could be used as trim and women could begin to wear color as they came out of this phase. Mourning over parents or parents over lost children

usually lasted one year with six months in crepe, three months in the second stage and three in half mourning. Young children mourned a year. Females under 17 did not wear the crepe of full mourning. Loftman wore a Victorian garment of widow weeds made from 17 yards of silk crepe, a black silk satin petticoat and bustle, and full mourning veil. She also showed a small cap with attached veil for second stage mourning and discretely

The audience had the opportunity to see Loftman’s collection of mourning parasols, including one with a spring hinge so the mourner could screen herself from passersby if she wished. She displayed an extensive collection of mourning jewelry and told the group about materials used to make the jewelry and the symbolism involved. In keeping with the thought of mourning, the chapter held its annual memorial service for those Daughters who had passed in the past year. Registrar Kathleen Loftman placed

Dudek finished the ceremony with a patriotic eulogy.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Ask the Plastic Surgeons By Wendell Smoot, MD, Reza Sadrian, MD, Carol Hollan, MD and John Smoot, MD Q. My husband and I have both been contemplating facial rejuvenation procedures. Can you explain what the difference is regarding the aging process between men and women? A. Couples plastic surgery has been an emerging trend over the past few years; many couples find the plastic surgery experience to be more enjoyable if they schedule their procedures together and convalesce at the same time. Encountering a renewed sense of youth and vitality simultaneously can enhance the increase in self-esteem for both parties that often results from restorative procedures. Being in a committed relationship often leads to growing old together, but men and women often experience differences during the aging process. Signs of again typically are most prevalent on the face, and the appearance of wrinkles will depend largely on the sex of the individual. Men are more prone to develop forehead wrinkles, whereas women will generally experience fine lines around the eyes (commonly referred to as “crow’s feet”) and/or around the mouth, often referred to as “laugh lines”. Women are also prone to sagging skin around the neck, whereas men will often see their chins diminish over time. For men, one remedy for a diminished chin is a chin implant procedure, which will restore the definition of the jaw line. Women who have loose skin around the neck can benefit from a neck lift, which tightens the skin specifically in this area. Both sexes can benefit from facelifts, which are often combined with neck lifts and chin implants to achieve the desired results. A less-invasive option to remedy facial wrinkles can be achieved through the application of Botox injections or dermal fillers. The location and amount of product utilized through injection delivery will vary per individual, but there is a significantly reduced amount of recovery time compared to plastic surgery procedures.

Wendell Smoot, MD, Reza Sadrian, MD, Carol Hollan, MD and John Smoot, MD Participating in the rejuvenation process as a couple can be a meaningful and rewarding experience. It’s very important that each partner undergo individual consultations to determine appropriate procedures that address different aspects of the face that vary between genders. As always, we recommend scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon prior to undergoing any treatment for optimum results. John Smoot, MD, is the former Chief of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Memorial Hospital-La Jolla and Wendell Smoot, MD, has been voted by his peers as Top Doctor in San Diego for five consecutive years. Carol Hollan, MD, is San Diego’s first female board-certified plastic surgeon while Reza Sadrian, MD, is one of very few plastic surgeons dually certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as oral and maxillofacial surgery. The practice has over 20 years of tenure in the industry and each is individually board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Any of the physicians can provide consultations on plastic surgery procedures and/or laser and skincare treatments at their Laser and Skincare Center and can be reached at their offices on the campus of Scripps Memorial Hospital-La Jolla in the Ximed Medical Building by calling (858) 587-9850 or via the web at sandiegoplastiscurgeryclinic.com.

Lilian Rice author wins ‘A Monumental Work Award’ from Save Our Heritage Organisation On the evening of May 23 eight recipients of the People In Preservation Awards from Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) were feted at a special event held at the Point Loma Assembly clubhouse, a restored turn-of-the-century meeting hall. Each year SOHO, the county’s largest and California’s oldest continuously operating preservation group, has saluted individuals and groups who have helped preserve important aspects of the county’s heritage. Recognition of those who helped in the fight to save the historical integrity of Balboa Park kicked off the evening. The Plaza de Panama People In The Trenches tribute applauded this major achievement that halted the park’s proposed massive development. Local author Diane Welch was honored for her 2010 book “Lilian J. Rice, Architect of Rancho Santa Fe.” Welch’s award, “A Monumental Work Award,” was one of two that she received that day as County Supervisor Dave Roberts, Third District, also awarded Welch an official Certificate of Recognition in honor of her achievements. The County award was “In appreciation of your advancement of historical knowledge about Lilian J. Rice and her importance to the architectural history in our community,” as noted on the certificate. The SOHO jury was impressed by the level of dedication and determination that Welch, a Solana Beach resident and feature journalist, has shown through her research and subsequent publishing of her book on Lilian J. Rice. “She brought to highlight Rice’s importance in the architectural history of the region, thereby contributing to the advancement of historical knowledge in the community as well. Diane’s ongoing mission to share the Lilian Rice story

is admirable and her efforts to enlighten the public on her life and legacy are to be commended,” said Bruce Coons, SOHO executive director. Read WelchOnRice. blogspot.com to learn more about Diane Welch’s work on Lilian Rice.

Max’s Ring Of Fire gears up for 5th Annual Touch A Truck event June 8 Since its launch in 2009, Touch A Truck has become an annual tradition for families throughout Southern California. This year’s event, which takes place Saturday, June 8, at Qualcomm Stadium, promises to be the biggest and loudest to date with even more vehicles, food trucks and young musical talent! If that isn’t reason enough to pack up the family mini-van, consider your admission to Touch A Truck is a donation to help kids fighting cancer. Money raised at Touch A Truck goes directly to childhood cancer research and clinical trials at Rady Children’s Hospital and 12 other hospitals across the U.S. Touch A Truck is presented by Max’s Ring of Fire. Max Mikulak loved everything on wheels. After he lost his hard-fought bat-

tle with cancer at the tender age of 7, his parents Melissa and Andy Mikulak of Del Mar wanted to honor his memory by holding an event that Max himself would have loved to raise awareness and money for kids’ cancer research. Since its debut, Touch A Truck San Diego has hosted more than 15,000 guests and raised nearly $100,000 to fight childhood cancer. Touch A Truck will take place Saturday, June 8 at Qualcomm Stadium.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Democrats in Rancho Santa Fe? When I tell people I am associated with the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club, reactions are predictable: “Rancho Santa Fe Democrats: Isn’t that an oxymoron?� Or: “Isn’t that a contradiction in terms, like guest host, jumbo shrimp, military intelligence, business ethics, pretty ugly, and the living dead?� A critical biographer referred to John F. Kennedy as a master of “contrived casualness� and “planned spontaneity.� Shakespeare gives Romeo a speech that includes, “O heavy lightness! Serious vanity!/Mis-shapen chaos of well-seeming forms!/Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health!� BTW: The word oxymoron is itself an oxymoron. It derives from the Greek oxus, meaning sharp or keen, and moros, meaning dull or stupid. The seldom-used plural of oxymoron is oxmora. This is useful information if you are ever a contestant on “Jeopardy� and the category is “Useless plurals.� Although the political contributions of the two Rancho Santa Fe ZIP codes (92067 and 92091) go overwhelmingly to Republicans, the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club is thriving. This is all the more remarkable in light of the fact that several North County Democratic clubs have come and gone over the years. The RSF club was established in 2007. It now has about 100 members and a mailing list of about 400, with 60-70 people attending most meetings.

The club was active in 2012 in the successful campaigns of Congressman Scott Peters, Supervisor Dave Roberts, SD Mayor Bob Filner and Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, state Senator Marty Block, and Assemblywoman Toni Atkins. Mayor Filner was the speaker at the May program. Senator Block will speak to the Club on Friday, June 21. Club meetings routinely attract elected officials, political candidates, and political junkies. Past speakers include now-Congressman Scott Peters, state Controller John Chiang (Full disclosure: He signs my paychecks!), state Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, and political scientist Carl Luna. You need not live in Rancho Santa Fe or Fairbanks Ranch to be part of this club. It also has members from Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, Carmel Valley, and surrounding areas. The official motto of the RSF Democrats is, “Bringing North County Together.� Paraphrasing the US Navy, I like the slogan, “A Regional Force for Good.� But my favorite motto is “Rancho Santa Fe Democrats: Not an oxymoron any more.� For information about the club and its programs, visit http://www.rsfdem.org/ Gordon Clanton Gordon Clanton teaches Sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at gclanton@mail.sdsu.edu.

He has directed pediatric neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center since 1984. Dr. Carson is president and co-founder, with his wife Candy, of the Carson Scholars Fund. Since its founding 19 years ago, more than $4.3 million have been awarded to scholars nationwide. The program also establishes Carson Reading Rooms “to encourage young students and their families to‌ discover the true power of learning.â€? Despite current political concerns, in his “Celebrating Americaâ€? talk, Dr. Carson expressed solid confidence. Confidence in his abilities but also in America’s resolve to be great. He is quiet, calm, very personable, and optimistic, with common sense and a very dry humor. “Readingâ€? and challenging yourself is the answer to a more fulfilled life, says Dr. Carson. When Dr. Carson says, “Think Big,â€? he breaks it down: “The ‘T’ is for ‘Talent,’ which God gave to everybody... let’s put intellectual ability where it belongs so that the United States of America can stay where it belongs... ‘H’ is for ‘Honesty’... ‘Iâ€? is for ‘Insight’‌ ‘N’ is for ‘Nice’... [It pays off], and you’ll see it makes a big difference‌ ‘K’ is for ‘Knowledge,’ which is the thing that makes you into a more valuable person‌ The ‘B’ is for ‘Books,’ which is the mechanism for obtaining that knowledge, and it’s never too late‌ And the second ‘I’ is for ‘InDepth Learning,’ learning for the sake of knowledge and understanding, as opposed to superficial learning‌ the last letter, ‘G,’ is for ‘God.’ Don’t be ashamed of God‌ Let’s forget about all this political correctness stuff‌ And, let’s think about what we believe in... this country, the preamble to our Constitution, our Bill of Rights[; which] talks about certain inalienable rights that our Creator, a.k.a. God, endowed us with.â€? Thank you to Graham Ledger for his recording the Carson function for his new network “One Americaâ€? (premiering in July nationwide). Mike Slater (of KFMB AM-760), who did a great job as our evening’s emcee. Also, Rev. Dr. Jack Baca (of the Village Presbyterian Church), thank you for your thoughtful invocation. We are grateful to event host, The Tri-City Tea Party (TCTP), and the financial support of primary sponsors: Vera & John Peck, Jr. and the following original sponsors: Gail Andrade; Alyce & Jim Ashcraft; Leslie Barone; Don Brandon, MD; Jenny Craig; Brett Dieterich; Susan & Mike Farrior; Gigi Fenley; Guy Freeborn; Alyson Goudy; Janice & David Haley; Connie & Bill McNally; Don Oliphant; Clay Perkins; James Schmidt; Cindy Stevens; Susan Woolley; Scott Worman, MD. Additional recognition to: Volunteer members of The Rancho Santa Fe Republican Women, Fed.; Maureen Guffanti (TCTP); Melissa McKim (WSB); Greg Day, Ken Wood and Chris Williams for their legal assistance; and The “New Haven Youthâ€? of Vista, Calif. We need to mentor these young people who are the future of our country. It has been a delight to have worked with all these people. I am very glad to have been able to make this unique opportunity.
