Water District board approves pay raises

Oct. 25, 2012

Final EIR to be released soon on proposed roundabouts in RSF BY KAREN BILLING San Diego County is expected to release its final environmental impact report on the proposed roundabouts for Paseo Delicias/Del Dios Highway within the next few weeks. The Rancho Santa Fe Association board, which received an update on the project Oct. 18, has been reviewing the project for over 10 years. Roundabouts are looked at as a way to create free-flowing traffic at intersections, RSF Association Assistant Manager Ivan Holler said, requiring vehicles to slow but not stop. While they are more costly than traffic lights—the three proposed roundabouts are projected to cost $6 million—the roundabouts would improve the functioning of intersections on the highway and could reduce vehicle emissions as well as cut-through traffic. The EIR will look at three proposed intersections for roundabouts: At Via de la Valle, El Montevideo and El Camino Del Norte. When the EIR is released, RSF Association Vice President Anne Feighner requested that a community-wide meeting be held to discuss the project and its potential impacts. “I still have questions and the community has questions,” Feighner said. “I think we have to be very careful when an issue hasn’t come up in several years…Almost nobody has it on their radar.” See ROUNDABOUTS, page 30

•B oard also discusses possible water rate increase for 2013 BY JOE TASH Santa Fe Irrigation District directors raised the pay of employees and managers by 8 percent over the next three years, reduced pension benefits for new hires and discussed a potential increase in water rates for 2013 at their meeting on Thursday, Oct. 18. The board voted 3-1, with director John Ingalls voting no and director Andy Menshek absent, to approve both a new, three-year labor agreement with district employees, and a separate raise for managers. The agreement also calls for employees to increase the amount they pay into the state’s retirement system from their current contribution of 3 percent of their salary to a total of 8 percent over the next three years. The agreement also provides “stipends” totaling 11 percent over the next three years, which are not added to base pay, for a smaller group of employees not eligible for the pay raise, and allows employees who opt out of health insurance coverage to receive a payment of $500 per month. Two speakers — including board candidate Greg Gruzdowich — urged the board not to vote on the new employee agreements until after the Nov. 6 election, when at least one new member will be elected to the board. Gruzdowich said he opposes the pay increases


County supervisors to consider possible partnership options for governance of fair board

Dia Del Sol 2012

The The Beach and Country Guild’s 43rd Annual Día Del Sol, “Strike a Pose,” was held Oct. 17 at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. The event, which benefits United Cerebral Palsy, San Diego, included a luncheon and auction. The highlight of the event was the UCP Children’s Fashion Show sponsored by the Gap and a designer runway fashion show with Mistress of Ceremonies Kimberly Hunt.

BY KATHY DAY County supervisors on Oct. 31 will consider a proposal that some hope could lead to more local control in governing the 22nd District Agricultural Association. At the urging of Adam Day, president of the board charged with operations of the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Ron Roberts and Greg Cox are asking their fellow supervisors to open discussions “on potential partnership options.” Day has been talking in board meetings and in conversations with local leaders for more than four months about finding what he calls “new gover-

nance models that would expand and enhance input from local government.” In a phone interview on Oct. 19, he said, “The county is the logical representative for all of the citizens of San Diego County. The fairgrounds and the race meet frankly belong to all of the residents of the county and beyond.” Day said the objective is to find a way to be “more transparent, with increased local input in the operations, and free of state bureaucracy,” Both Cox and Roberts issued statements saying

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Final word: Rancho Santa Fe School District board candidates Five candidates are vying for three seats on the Rancho Santa Fe School District Board of Trustees in the Nov. 6 election. The candidates are Lorraine Brovick-Kent, Todd Buchner,

Richard Burdge (incumbent), Tyler Seltzer (incumbent) and Heather Slosar. In September we published biographies of each candidate and their answers to questions from the RSF Review (see To give readers one more chance to learn about the candidates before the election, we are publishing final candidate statements below (as well as a reprint of their biographies).

Name: Lorraine Brovick-Kent Years living in the RSF School District: 16 years and a San Diego native Profession/education: Retired; Former managing director at National Decision Systems, a subsidiary of Equifax. Bachelor of Science from SDSU. Community activities: San Diego County Taxpayer Association Lorraine member; League of Women Voters Brovick-Kent member; PTO member and/or Foundation member for the last 15 years; Past Council member for Solana Ranch Girl Scout Service Unit working with membership development at R. Roger Rowe School, as well as Troop leader for eight years; RSF Community Center volunteer on Back to School Bash, fundraising programs like the Gala and holiday events; Children’s Hospital RSF Auxiliary lifetime membership, since 1997, serving in various positions and working on numerous fundraising events over the years. Candidate Statement: Excel in Academic Achievement by exceeding current State standards. We should set our goals higher than the state standards and become better aligned with the next tier of education. We have 88 students leaving 8th grade to attend the local high schools with 720 students in 8th grade from the #1 ranked Carmel Valley Middle School, so why have we been #2 since 2006? I do not advocate teaching to a test. The picture is much bigger as our students become apart of a larger community in high school and compete for the same college spots. We need higher standards than what the State

Candidate Statement: Thanks for your consideration in this upcoming election for our school board. I’m appreciative of your support and humbled by a recent endorsement by the board’s outgoing president Jim Depolo who has helped lead our school over the last eight years. As financial budgets continue to be tightened, it is going to be increasingly important to draw on the resources of our community and think critically about our kids’ educational futures. Our education foundation exemplifies the value of this type of approach. Their efforts to deliver a five-star educational experience manifests itself in our small class sizes, specialized teachers, literacy excellence programs, integrated science programs, and differentiated mathematics. I believe we must continue to draw from the success of this model and, most importantly, to create new opportunities. Everyone agrees that test scores are important, but they are one element of our kids’ education. My experience leads me to believe that test scores vary from year to year and can be interpreted in many ways. Our board, adminis-

I am running for a third term to offer the community continuity on the school board and with its policies and actions. I have witnessed our Standardized Test scores reach the highest level in the history of the district, approved the development of specialized programs (i.e. Columbia Reading and Writing, Robotics, Tech 21, Rocketry etc.), supervised the income and expenses of our annual budget and worked diligently with the bond committee to gain voter approval of Proposition E, a $34 million bond request to renovate the R.

RSF Association briefs; Oct. 18 meeting More Ranch roads to be repaved San Diego County will reseal two more Covenant roads in the coming months, according to Rancho Santa Fe Association Assistant Manager Ivan Holler. Lago Lindo and Via de la Valle, from Paseo Delicias to Via de Santa Fe, will be repaved, with work tentatively scheduled to begin by mid-November. Holler said the timeline could change but it is the hope the work will be complete in a couple months. Rancho Days Round-up Rancho Santa Fe celebrated its historic roots with a very successful Rancho Days this year. The Rancho Santa Fe Association heard reports of high attendance numbers from several of the event organizers. Early reservations for events had trickled in so some organizers had thought it would be a down year, but it turned out to be the opposite. Assistant Manager Ivan Holler said that 250 people swung by to check out the Osuna Adobe during its open house, enjoying a guided tour, lunch and demonstrations by the Osuna Ranch horses, including apple dunking. Another 200 people came to the Association offices for Taco Fest on Oct. 3 for street tacos and live music—a lot of Johnny Cash. “It went over really well,” said Daria Quay, Association secretary. Rancho Santa Fe Rotary kicked off Rancho Days with a very well-attended barbecue and the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club’s Hoedown BBQ & Dance had 153 attendees, including 24 children. “It was very popular and very well received,” said Al Castro, general manager of the golf club. Director Craig McAllister, who had a hand in planning the Tennis Club’s 50th anniversary party that capped off Rancho Days on Oct. 7, said that their celebration was “incredible.” McAllister said they had a turnout of over 300 people and former professional tennis player Tracy Austin led a very entertaining exhibition—“she still has game,” he noted. The board recognized the Association’s Shannon Mountain who took the lead in planning Rancho Days. Mountain received a gift of thanks and kudos for all her hard work that resulted in such a successful week. — Karen Billing

Generation Stress? Expert has advice on raising resilient, successful kids BY CATHERINE IVEY LEE Today’s students might be the smartest generation on record. Their IQs are higher, their GPAs are numerical masterpieces, and their resumes are bursting with achievement. But they are also the most stressed-out generation in recent history, warned parenting expert Michele Borba during a recent talk at The Bishop’s School on “Raising Self-Reliant Kids to Strive and Survive.” WeCare, a consortium of six independent schools, including Bishop’s and La Jolla Country Day, sponsored the event. “The American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics are saying we have never seen such high level of stress in our kids,” said Borba, an educational psychologist and author of 23 books on parenting. Having gotten into prestigious colleges, many of today’s best and brightest feel overwhelmed, anxious and depressed once there, Borba said. Alarmed college counselors have dubbed them, “Generation Stress,” as well as “crispies” and “tea cups” — some students are burned out before college even begins while others break like china at the first failure they experience without a parent around. It’s not just college students. In a survey at WeCare’s consortium schools, middle and high school students ranked “feeling pressure from their parents” and “time management” as their top worries, according to the group’s chair, Jill Skrezyna. Why are kids struggling? Borba blames today’s pressurefilled and competitive culture in part. In addition, she said that despite their best intentions, today’s parents can make things worse by protecting their children from setbacks. “Researchers are saying that what would really help our children above all else is not just to have that IQ and smartness, but the ability to be able to bounce back when the inevitable thing called a failing experience happens,” Borba said. “If we rescue them along the way, we don’t build up

Parenting expert Michele Borba speaks to parents about helping kids manage stress in a talk held at The Bishop’s School. what’s called psychological immunity. So when the real tough stuff happens the kid just falls apart,” she said. Borba believes a better way for parents to help their children is to teach them skills to withstand life’s storms such as self-reliance, resilience, perseverance, even grit – a catchall characteristic being touted in this fall’s bestselling book “How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden Power of Character” by Paul Tough. Borba’s advice for parents: 1) Start at home. Research shows that students with the highest self-esteem and strongest sense of character were raised by parents who showed unconditional love and acceptance, set firm, yet achievable expectations, and communicated openly and respectfully. “Kids say their No. 1 pressure is to not let their parents down,” Borba said. “They need to know, ‘I love you and I like you for who you are,’

she said. ‘I accept your strengths but I can also identify your weaknesses.’ ” 2) Build coping skills. Don’t rescue children from disappointments and failures. “Help them to recognize that ‘I can make it and I can survive it,’ ” she said. 3) How you praise matters. Citing research by Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck, Borba said telling kids they are smart or did a good job on a test is “actually one of the worst things you can do.” Praising outcomes teaches children that their intelligence and ability to succeed is fixed. By praising effort instead, children see the value of hard work, which will help them for life. 4) Say no. Today’s children are used to getting what they want. But delaying gratification builds determination and perseverance skills. If they don’t really need something, stretch out how long children can wait for something or make them put it as a goal, Borba said. 5) Help kids manage stress. Techniques such as deep breathing or yoga helps children get through stressful times, while being organized helps them avoid them. Teach students how to prioritize homework goals, to manage time and to cut back on activities. “Kids are desperate for time management skills. Help them,” she said. Want to read more?

Chevys to close after 20 years of serving local communities

BY CLAIRE HARLIN After nearly 20 years in operation, Chevys Fresh Mex in the Flower Hill Promenade will close at the end of the year, and a sister restaurant to San Diego’s Cucina Urbana will open there in May. Flower Hill owner Jeffrey Essakow said it is unfortunate that Chevys didn’t renew its lease when it had the option in August, but he’s excited to see Cucina Enoteca, a modern Italian food and wine bar concept, come to town. “They are an exciting, new, up-and-coming restaurant, and I’ve been working with owner Tracy Borkum for nine years to bring them to Flower Hill,” said Essakow. “She’s been desperately looking for a North County location and finally found the right spot.” The opening of the 7,000-square-foot Cucina Enoteca will be the first of 10 nationwide, said spokeswoman Kelly LaPrade Brown, adding that Borkum is working with “a powerhouse team” of local designers and architects. The multi-million dollar project will be the restaurateur’s most elaborate project yet, Brown said. Borkum’s Banker’s Hill restaurant has turned into a busy landmark since its opening in 2009, and the Flower Hill location — which she described as “the best location in Northern San Diego” — will encompass the same modern kitchen-meets-historic farmhouse concept, featuring a wine shop and bring-your-own option (with a $20 corkage fee, that is). A similar restaurant also opened in Irvine last December. For more information, visit

Valenti assists Pegasus Rising in search of refuge for herd of horses RSF resident Irene Valenti recently announced that she is assisting Pegasus Rising in an effort to find a new home for approximately 17 horses all of whom she helped rescue from severe neglect in 2008.

RSF Garden Club spearheading creation of military care packages for the troops • Community donations needed and welcome The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club will once again facilitate a community effort to honor the country’s active military serving overseas. For two weeks prior to Veterans Day collection boxes will be placed around the village for people to drop off the items that are specifically requested and much needed by our men and women in uniform. There will be two boxes at The Rancho Santa Fe Library, one upstairs, and one in the Book Cellar. The Garden Club will also offer two opportunities, one in The Shoppe and one upstairs. The offices of James Jam on Via de Santa Fe will have a drop off basket outside the door during regular business hours. Funds for the cost of shipping and the purchase of additional items are definitely needed. Last year in the spirit of community the

Rancho Santa Fe Foundation and the Rancho Santa Fe Republican Women donated funds, as did many generous individuals. With the generous donations we were able to use the large flat rate USPS boxes, which were “stuffed” to the top with the many needed items the troops have requested. Each box also included a handwritten note, many written by children from the Community Center. The humble euphoria of the volunteers was moving as the boxes were filled, closed, addressed (including itemized customs forms), sorted by the AFO addresses into stacks and then 106 care packages were delivered to the post office. The packages were sent to three different units of Marines stationed in Afghanistan and were gratefully received before the holidays The Horticultural Committee at the Garden Club is

RSF Big Band to present music of ‘The Greatest Generation’ Nov. 18 The RSF Big Band Swing Orchestra will perform music from “The Greatest Generation” on Sunday, Nov. 18, from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Village Church in Rancho Santa Fe. It’s been coined the “Greatest Generation” by journalist Tom Brokaw when describing the kids who grew up in the United States during the Great Depression, and then who fought in World War II. Music of their era began in the mid-1920s with a form of a sweet and melodic jazz, often including The RSF Big Band violins. Among the artists were Paul Whiteman, Ted Lewis, Rudy Vallee and Fred Waring. Then in the 1930s a new movement in jazz took form and took off – “swing” with a new crop of musicians like Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Artie Shaw. During and soon after World War II, Earl Hines, Dizzy Gillespie and Lionel Hampton introduced Bebop style to jazz. From the 1950s to the 1970s performers such as Gene Krupa, Buddy Rich and Stan Kenton found their direction and added to the already vibrant vibe of 20th century music. The Greatest Generation heard it all, and to them the RSF Big Band plans to dedicate this Rancho Santa Fe Big Band concert, under the direction of Professor Jack Wheaton on Nov. 18 at the Village Church (6225 Paseo Delicias, RSF). Cost is $45 per person, available at the RSF Association (858-756-1174; 17022 Avenida de Acacias, RSF); Cost is $400 for a table of 10 by calling 858-756-4542.

BBQ fundraiser to be held for RSF Rotary Club to hold Sassy Santa Christmas injured rugby player Ronan Nelson Boutique and Holiday Extravaganza Nov. 2-3 BY KAREN BILLING The Team Ronan Recovery Fund is holding a fundraising party on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 5 p.m. Team Ronan supports Ronan Nelson, a Cathedral Catholic student-athlete who broke his neck and incurred spinal cord injuries playing rugby earlier this year. The event will feature a catered BBQ lunch, entertainment, raffle and live auction at the private home of Rick and Mary Reeder in Encinitas. Attendees are welcomed to dress to represent their favorite rugby club or nation. “He’s a really great kid,” said Bill Leversee, chair of the Team Ronan event and also Ronan’s rugby coach. “Insurance only goes so far and his family is in need of support so he is able to see a full recovery in his rehab. The community is really rallying together and stepping up to support this cause.” Ronan was injured during a game last year with the San Diego Mustangs at Carmel Valley Middle School. The road to recovery has had its challenges, but Ronan is staying strong and working hard at his rehab, Leversee said. “He is beginning to get some movement back in his upper body and some feeling in his legs,” Leversee said. “He is making progress. He is back in school at Cathedral, using a motorized wheelchair.” An excellent student, Ronan has a 4.5 GPA at Cathedral. A Nov. 3 event will benefit In June, Team Ronan held its first fundraiser—the World’s Ronan Nelson, a Cathedral Biggest Scrum.

It promises to be rugby. Photo/Jon Clark “quite the party,” he said. Live auction items include a family membership to Pacific Sports Resort (formerly known as Pacific Athletic Club in Carmel Valley) and a package to see the International Rugby Sevens in Las Vegas, to name just a few. The auction will also feature Fund-A-Need items, where people can sponsor rehab time for Ronan at his physical therapy center Project Walk in Carlsbad. “The raffle is really juicy,” said Leversee, noting they have had great response and support from local businesses. Prizes include packages from local eateries such as Sbicca, Burlap, Pacifica Del Mar, Crush, and Ruth’s Chris Steak House, as well as fitness offerings from the Sporting Club in La Jolla, Sculpt Fusion, Yoga Tropics and Yoga 6. The party will also be a unique opportunity to meet and hang out with some of the best rugby players the country has ever produced, as the USA National Rugby team will be in attendance. Rugby was recently added to the summer Olympics schedule and will be a part of the 2016 competition, so attendees will be mixing with future Olympians. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Leversee said. “I highly encourage everyone to reach into their pocket and give.” To register for the event visit

Viewpoints presents cell phone inventor Martin Cooper at RSF event Oct. 30

This rare 6.2 acre parcel in the Covenant sits on a private and quiet cul-de-sac street. Enjoy panoramic views and a serene setting adjacent to RSF riding trails. Preliminary plans for house & barn included.

Viewpoints, co-presented by The Village Church and the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation, will present guest speaker Martin Cooper, inventor of the first personal cell phone, on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from 6-8 p.m. at the Fellowship Center at the Village Church. Many people often wonder what technological advances will be a part of everyday life 30 years from now, as just 30 years ago, none of us would have ever imagined we would be using a cell phone to make a phone call from the palm of our hand. In that day, to think that from a hand-held phone we would one day monitor blood sugar, obtain driving directions, and take a photo seemed inconceivable; yet today, these are just a few of the everyday uses one takes for granted. Citing Captain Kirk’s communicator on Star Trek as his inspiration, Cooper changed the way we communicate forever. Cooper is an internationally-renowned expert on technology and innovation and its impact on business and society. He is widely regarded as one of the leading inventors of our time and has spent most of the past 50 years creating some of the world’s most important business and technological concepts and offerings, including virtually

every major innovation in personal wireless communications. Join Viewpoints on Tuesday, Oct. 30, to meet our very own “Captain Kirk” and learn more about emerging technology, data privacy, and mobile health care, among other topics, in the Fellowship Center at the Village Church. The evening will begin with wine and light hors d’oeuvres at 6 p.m. The discussion will be held from 6:30 - 8 p.m. and will include time for audience questions. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Advance ticket purchase is encouraged and may be purchased either on-line at or by calling 858-381-8070. Viewpoints is co-presented by The Village Church and the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation. The goal of the lecture series is to inform, inspire and impact by providing a forum in which individuals, renown in their field, share their knowledge, wisdom and experience with members of the community.

Dr. Brent Eastman

RSF’s Dr. Brent Eastman ready to tackle leadership role for the American College of Surgeons BY KATHY DAY Count on Dr. Brent Eastman to put his own mark on each challenge he tackles. The soon-to-be-retired chief medical officer and corporate senior vice president of Scripps Health recently stepped into the top leadership spot of the American College of Surgeons, which will mark its centennial under his guidance. When he gave his presidential address at the very formal convocation in September – “full of pomp and circumstance” — he said he did three things never done before. The audience consisted of 1,377 new fellows who, according to the ACS website, qualify for membership based on “the surgeon’s education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct (which) have passed a rigorous evaluation.” While preparing for his presentation, Eastman surveyed all of the new fellows so he could tell them who they are. What he learned via a SurveyMonkey poll is that average age of the fellows was 41, they had been practicing for four years or more, 300 were women and 232 new international fellows represented 49 countries; the rest are residents of the U.S. and Canada. And when he started his speech titled “The Next Hundred Years,” the internationally- recognized trauma surgeon asked them to take a minute and introduce themselves to their colleagues to their right and left. The leaders of the organization seated behind him were taken by surprise as murmurs of introduction took over the Dr. Brent Eastman (third from right) with his wife, Dr. Sarita Eastman, and their family.

Jung-Ho Pak resigns as Orchestra Next Community Concerts of RSF to Nova’s Artistic Director/Conductor feature unique vocal styling of 42Five

Orchestra Nova San Diego’s artistic director and conductor Jung-Ho Pak announced recently that he is stepping down after six years of musical and strategic leadership, effective immediately. Jung-Ho joined the orchestra in 2006 when it was known as the San Diego Jung-Ho Pak Chamber Orchestra. Since that time, he has transformed the orchestra into one of the most innovative and entertaining music experiences in San Diego, demonstrating a fresh and open approach to making classical music entertaining, emotional and relevant to today’s audiences and selling out nearly all of its performances last season. “The entire Nova team has been passionate about what began as Jung-Ho’s vision but quickly became the Nova vision,” says Beverly Lambert, Orchestra Nova’s chief executive officer. “Wanting to bring love and joy to every human being he can reach through an inspiring music experience is

not a cliché – he is dead serious about it. He’s about reaching out to new demographics, regardless of age, ethnicity or background – the 99 percent of the population who can’t conceive that classical music could possibly be entertaining or fun. “We will miss him terribly,” Lambert said, “but we wish him only the best. He is a true visionary and we have been blessed by his leadership. I have no doubt that he will become one of the most influential leaders in the world of classical music and in music education – one of his passions – in the years to come.” Orchestra Nova has been deeply committed to music education, under the leadership of Pak, and has one of the most extensive programs in San Diego County. With a mission of bringing joy through classical music education to each and every student, the orchestra has already engaged thousands of students through its programs, which are low-cost, self-sustainable and long-lasting.

It’s simply the voices of five guys: Ryan, Earl, Geoff, Danny and Layne who have come together to create 42Five will perform Nov. 9 at the Village Church in RSF. a new form of entertainment that is innovative and setting the bar high to bring to life vocal impossibilities. This musical group has been performing their own unique brand of entertainment since the turn of the century and they’ll be singing songs we all love from the 60’s to tunes of today, including Journey’s “Don’t stop Believing,” Queens “Don’t Stop Me Now” and Three Dog Night’s “Joy to the World.” Evolving from a street corner barbershop sound, and drawing on funk, rock, jazz, and blues — 42Five is unlike any musical experience around, recreating an entire instrumental band with nothing but their five voices — a feat which has to be seen to be believed. 42Five brings timeless, classic music to life with renewed freshness and infuses their beautiful harmonies with a lovable sense of humor and style all of their own. 42Five is blazing new trails and winning the hearts and imaginations of audiences big and small and of every race, creed, sex, and age. More fun than “The Sing-Off,” more infectious than “Glee,” this all-ages show will have you singing in your seat! With only five voices, no tricks, just talent, this award-winning group crafts an energizing performance that always leaves the audience standing on their feet, singing along and wanting more. Tickets for this concert are still available, and children with an accompanying adult attend free of charge. Forty-five minutes before each concert complimentary wine, soft drinks and delicious hors d’oeuvres are provided, so bring your friends and join the fun.

Patriot Profiles: ‘Everything you go through in life makes you the person you are today’ BY JEANNE MCKINNEY This column presents “Patriot Profiles� to provide readers insight into the lives of our country’s heroes. The stormy pasts of a historic aircraft and the last pilot trained to fly her run in close parallel. The Marine Corps’ CH46 helicopter and Captain Zerbin Singleton are both testaments to gritty survival — their exteriors pierced with extraordinary trials – their interiors strongholds of extraordinary triumphs. Singleton lives “open to opportunity.� Like the CH46, he’s seen a rougher side of life. Embracing opportunity has joined him with the legacy of the CH46 Sea Knight, a war horse of the sky that has carried assault troops and supplies and rescued the wounded dating back to 1966. He discovered when he took the plunge to serve his country that he would take on this battle-tested aircraft, which calls for the boldest and brightest to command her controls. Sometimes life tramps hardest on the boldest and brightest. Even with the most careful piloting, you can be taken down and your remains scattered. There’s a

place called Helicopter Valley, Vietnam, where five CH46’s crashed in one day — killing many Marines, dusting the ground with their courage. The footprints Singleton has left throughout his life reveal another kind of bravery as he forged through his own fires. Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Singleton grew up with only his mother, a drug addict. He saw domestic violence, drugs in the home and was, at times, homeless. When his mother was in jail, he moved in with an aunt and cousins who lived in Georgia and continued his schooling. When Singleton finally got the chance to meet his father, who left before he was born, he went in with a positive attitude. “We started growing our relationship and visited each other. I never held a grudge against him.� He believes, “How can I ask God for forgiveness if I can’t forgive others?� Flying was fascinating for this recently promoted

Captain, who always wanted to be a pilot. After high school, “I was looking for schools with Division I football and aerospace engineering – two things that usually don’t go together. I was also seeking a scholarship.� He gravitated to the Naval Academy over the Air Force Academy because of the excitement of being able to land on a ship. “When I visited there, I loved it.� Singleton was accepted and played Slot Back for the Naval Academy. He was part of the team in 2007 when the “Mids� beat the Notre Dame “Irish,� breaking a 43year losing streak. His future looked bright – he was embracing opportunity and chasing his dream, when his war-torn past resurfaced. While only a freshman (or plebe), his stepmom called around Christmastime saying his father had committed suicide. “It was a very hard thing to encounter.� Then, he lights up the room saying, “I know that God won’t bring me to something he won’t bring

me through.� Using faith as his guide, Singleton made it through a fog of despair – keeping an eye on his horizon, which was learning how to fly. “Flight school was pretty demanding – countless hours, lots of things to remember and task saturation,� he said. Instructors train students to be able to perform in stressful and emergency situations. For an average untrained citizen, catching a flight in a CH46 training sequence would be hair-raising. Being a passenger in a combat situation would be unimaginably frightening. Many hours of practice gives Singleton the “muscle memory� he needs to transition his skills from the training ground to the battlefield. “Out flying, your worst enemy is probably yourself. A majority of the mishaps in current aviation are pilot -induced. Things like not knowing your weight and balance properly, so you don’t have enough power to execute the mission, not paying attention to the weather, vertigo, or not knowing the limitations of SEE PATRIOT, PAGE 27

The trees and greenery are from Oregon and trees will be freshly cut within two days of delivery to guarantee freshness throughout the holiday season. Funds raised will help purchase new team uniforms and needed soccer equipment for the team. The Canyon Crest Varsity Boys soccer team

had a remarkable season in 2012 and hopes to continue its record of excellence both on and off the field in 2013. The CCA Boys Varsity Soccer team program is generally considered one of the top teams in D III each year and selected the 2011 CIF San Diego Section All-Academic team for soccer. Last season the team was ranked in the top 25 California High School programs by ESPN Rise. CCA Soccer has consistently participated in CIF playoffs under the direction of Head Coach Tom Lockhart. The Ravens will be joining the Palomar League this year, which is the toughest high school league for soccer in San Diego County.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion Protect the quality of our local schools: Vote Yes on Prop AA As a resident of a community located within the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD), I consider myself fortunate to have excellent school options for my children. In order to give back to our outstanding San Dieguito schools, dozens of committed volunteers each year work on behalf of the La Costa Canyon High School Foundation (LCCHS) supporting LCCHS. My involvement with the foundation has provided an upclose view of the financial challenges that threaten the well-being of our award-winning schools, and with these challenges in mind, the LCCHS Foundation and I have endorsed Proposition AA. High school graduates are competing for college admissions and quality jobs. As a result, demand is growing for classes in advanced math, science, and engineering. All of our schools need upgrades to meet evolving technological standards for classrooms, labs, and libraries. Aging schools suffer from leaky roofs, rusty plumbing, and inadequate electrical systems. Some schools don’t meet modern seismic standards; others still have hazardous asbestos and lead to remove. While these schools have served our community well, we must make urgent repairs and upgrades so all students learn in safe, modern classrooms. Without securing local funding, we cannot pay for these upgrades. Proposition AA improvements could also help save millions of dollars currently used to patch old school facilities. SDUHSD hasn’t asked voters to pass a bond measure in more than 40 years, but we can no longer afford to wait and hope that legislators in Sacramento will someday fund these improvements. We need Proposition AA today to provide local funding for urgent school improvements to protect the quality of our local schools. We hope that your readers will join me and Vote Yes on Proposition AA. Clarke Caines President La Costa Canyon High School Foundation

RE: Prop AA: San Dieguito Union High School District $449 million bond proposal: As the founding member of the 858 Tea party and parent of a Torrey Pines High School student, the San Dieguito Union High School District’s planned $449 million bond offering on the November 2012 ballot is exactly what we stand against: increased taxes, wasteful use of tax-payer dollars and a disconnect with/disrespect for the very people the board is sworn to represent and act in the best interest of: • Pork. The bond is filled with unnecessary pork projects. Example: $33.9 million for Canyon Crest Academy — a brand new school! • Shell Game: The bond moves monies from solar projects (with low-interest loans) and the Torrey Pines Football field improvement into the bond, to be paid-for over the next three generations. • No Future Monies: If the bond is passed, it will hamstring schools with obsolete equipment while crippling the district from seeking fresh monetary streams down the road. • Open Ended Earmarks & Junk: Tens of millions of dollars with open-ended earmarks that can be spent at will and with no justification. • Methodology: The bond consulting company that performed the survey (Dolinka) biased the polling results (favorable to the bond) by asking leading questions and asking nonhomeowners if they would approve a bond. It is homeowners who will pay for the bond — not nonhomeowners. • Tax Rates: Property tax rates will go up significantly to pay for the bond. On a typical North County Coastal home of $1 million dollars, the tax bill would increase some $250 per year. That’s on top of any other new taxes assessed against homeowners. This board has shown it cannot even balance its own checkbook. In fiscal 2011-2012, the board ran a deficit of $3.5 million. For fiscal ‘12-’13, it’s projected that the district will be millions more in the red. Enough! Image how this board will squander $449 million! I strongly urge a negative stance and a “no” vote on this bond. I suggest to the board to find another way than a general obligation bond to improve and upgrade schools. Graham C. Ledger

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Author Adriana Trigiani to speak at RSF Library Guild’s ‘Author Talk’ Author Adriana Trigiani will appear at the Nov. 9 RSF Library Guild “Author Talk.” Trigiani will be presenting her book “The Shoemaker’s Wife.” The event will be held from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Nov. 9 at the RSF Branch Library, 17040 Avenida de Acacias, Rancho Santa Fe. Cost: $35 includes author presentation, signed copy of the book, and a light lunch. This event is for Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild members. Anyone can become a member of the Library Guild. Go to or call (858) 756-4780.

PATRIOT continued from page 18 your aircraft all come into play.” “The biggest adjustment is counter-intuitive,” he states, “you have to rely on instruments. It might look like you’re sideways, but your instruments say you are flying straight. So you have to trust.” After four years fusing his path with that of the CH46, the Marine Corps is phasing out this well-used servant. The last CH-46’s went out with a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) which deployed to Afghanistan only weeks ago. Saying farewell is “almost bittersweet” because Singleton thinks it’s “cool to be able to fly a different aircraft.” Perhaps it’ll be a Super Cobra attack helicopter or

the MV-22 Osprey, an awesome tiltrotor aircraft that takes off and lands like a helicopter. The Osprey is twice as fast as a helicopter, has greater fuel range and multi-mission capabilities. Whatever new aircraft or assignment, the Captain ultimately looks forward to engaging in “the fight” overseas. Advanced aviation technology isn’t the only thing that’s changed since Vietnam. Back then, Singleton says, “We [the military] knew where we were going – everybody was following the Geneva Convention laws of war. Austerely, he adds, “It’s a different situation now. They’re terrorists — they don’t have any rules to follow.” Zerbin, who’s hammered out his own rules, lives with “no regrets.” “Everything you go

through in life makes you the person you are today.” He believes his stormy past has given him the will to overcome anything that comes in his way. “Whatever you accomplish, ultimately, you are in control of your own destiny.” My day ends on a lot at 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, Camp Pendleton, with two icons refusing to be taken down. A CH46 (signed “Knight Riders”) is from the Vietnam era and beckons from its resting place in the back corner. Captain Singleton takes me to the metal giant that’s survived 300 bullet holes. I feel an aura of anxious moments, heroic maneuvers and duty at all costs. My eyes rest on Singleton in the cockpit – knowing his flight paths will leave an extraordinary trail.

SLOSAR continued from page 3 (See chart above.) Moreover, our Elementary School performance doesn’t match our spending, with a current statewide ranking of #139 and erratic county rankings between 7th and 22nd over the past decade. [Note: Rankings are based on the number of students passing basic California standards tests at a “proficient” level or higher]. We haven’t been #1 in the county since 2001. We can

do better and rankings do matter to the students, parents and homeowners. • Retention of Middle School students. Many local families view private middle schools as a more attractive alternative to Roger Rowe. We have the resources and should be able to truly offer a “private education at a public school” that is so often touted. • Bring back foreign language to our Elementary School. It hasn’t been part of the curriculum since

2006. • Being a team player. Some of the issues and changes required are contentious. As I learned in my union negotiation days as a Director of Labor Relations in Detroit, you can’t succeed by being heavy-handed.

KENT continued from page 2 mandates to become #1 again. (See chart below.) Bring back the collective voices of the parents and community. We are a great school and we need to ensure we get parent and community input on our programs and land dealings. Over the years, I have personally witnessed many decisions come and go from our school without public discussion or insight as to why they worked or failed. Some examples are bond attempts, Honors classes and K-6 foreign language programs. One way to accomplish this is to conduct annual surveys on school issues, so that all stakeholders have an equal voice.

Rancho Santa Fe Review Raise the educational bar, not the budget. We are financially strong, but with pending budget cuts from the State, we need to manage our dollars even more than ever. Since 2005, our school attendance has been declining, yet spending has continually increased. Many parents have asked, “ Where is our money being spent?” It’s a misconception that top-rated schools can’t afford technology or enrichment programs, they do. Our schools biggest expense is people, not programs. Therefore, we must keep enrollment in mind while making any financial decisions. Visit

BUCHNER continued from page 2 trators, and teachers are thoughtful about preparing our kids, and our 2012 results demonstrate their efforts. We need to stay true to our school’s mission to provide “Inspiration through Revolutionary Education” versus adopting a teach-to-the-test mentality. Another way we can stay true to the school’s mission is by staying at the forefront of technology. Having specialized in technology capital markets earlier in my career, I understand the impact technology has had on a myriad of industries. Education today is at a crossroads, and technology is going to be a critical tool for our kids’ education. These are interesting and exciting times. I’m hopeful that you will support me in my effort to be elected to our school board. If you are interested in meeting or speaking more about any issue, feel free to contact me anytime. Please know the lines of communication are always open!

BURDGE continued from page 2 allowed the construction of the new school we have today. Additionally, the school district qualified for, and received, $8.4 million of added funds from the State of California for capital project improvements on the campus. These funds were used to construct the new artificial turf athletic field, professionally outfit the new Performing Arts Center, purchase adjacent land from the Association for off-site teacher parking, and most recently pay for the ipad technology upgrade that the school implemented. I offer the community an experienced perspective as a board member and remain dedicated to children in education.

SELTZER continued from page 3 on a daily basis with record high test scores, small class sizes, differentiated instruction, teaching specialists, robotics, Columbia reading and writing, character development, athletic excellence, cutting edge technology, first class facilities, and expanded art, music, drama, and language programs. I am committed to that continuing excellence. 3) Both my wife (Liz McElhinney) and I attended R. Roger Rowe School from kindergarten through the 8th grade. My perspective as a former student, current board member, and school parent provides me unique insight on how we can achieve an exceptional educational experience for our students, parents, teachers, and community.

4) As a 19-year resident of Rancho Santa Fe, I have a heightened sense of what this school means to our community, and what this community means to our school. As long as I am on the board, every decision I make will be made with a profound sense of obligation to our students, parents, and neighbors. 5) My business background comes from privately held, family owned and operated businesses, where every dollar in and every dollar out counts, the focus on fiscal discipline and accountability is at a premium, and building on organization of loyal, committed, and respected people is essential. I believe this combined experience of fiscal discipline and people development translates perfectly to the stewardship of our school district.

FAIR continued from page 1 they think the idea is worth exploring. “The concept is intriguing,” Roberts said via e-mail. “The San Diego County Fairgrounds is a regional asset and the certainty that comes with regional control may be beneficial.” Cox’s statement was similar, saying, in part, “… it is good government to explore options to keep it in regional control and protect the interests of all our communities and residents.” Their letter to the board said a partnership “would remove any uncertainty surrounding the property’s future as the State of California struggles to balance its budget.” They are recommending that Chief Administrative Officer Walter Ekard, who is leaving his post Dec. 1, begin meetings with fair

La Jolla Music Society presents Season 44 La Jolla Music Society opens its latest Frieman Family Piano Series with an all-Debussy program from Jean-Yves Thibaudet, 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 at Sherwood Auditorium in the Museum of Contemporary Art, 900 Prospect St. One of today’s most sought-after soloists, Thibaudet has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess. According to The New York Times, “every note he fashions is a pearl … the joy, brilliance and musicality of his performance could not be missed.” Highlights from the concert will include “Suite Bergamasque” and “L’isle Joyeuse.” Thibaudet was born in Lyon, France, where he began his piano studies at age five and made his first public appearance at age seven. At 12, he entered the Paris Conservatory to study with Aldo Ciccolini and Lucette Descaves, a collaborator of Ravel. At age 15, he won the Premier Prix du Conservatoire and, three years later, won the Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York City. Thibaudet’s musical depth and charisma have underlined a career with global impact, including 30 years of performing around the world and 40 recorded albums. Tickets, $25-$75, are available through the box office, (858) 459-3728 or online at

Rancho Santa Fe Review board officials and report back in 60 days on partnership possibilities. The proposal has the support of Solana Beach City Councilman Dave Roberts, who is seeking the third district supervisor’s seat now held by Pam Slater-Price. He has been a member of the fair relations board with Del Mar and Solana Beach officials for eight years, which he said gives him a good understanding of issues surrounding the fairgrounds. “For years we’ve been working with community leaders on how to protect and preserve this asset,” Roberts said on Oct. 22. “I’m extremely pleased this has caught the attention of the county board of supervisors. It’s a good step forward.” Steve Danon, who is also running for the third district county supervisor’s

WATER continued from page 1 and opt-out payments and argued that the new board should be allowed to consider those agreements. Board members defended the agreements, and said they were the product of nearly a year’s worth of negotiations with employees. “It’s a good (agreement). The long-term savings are significant, the immediate savings are less obvious,” said board member Robert “Bud” Irvin, who will step down from his seat in December after serving on the board for 15 years. Holly Jones Smith and Alan Smerican are running to replace Irvin. Director Ken Dunford, who is running against Gruzdowich, said district employees have not had a raise for five years. In addition, he said that over the next 10 to 20 years, due to the changes in employee pension benefits and contributions, “the savings are going to be measured in the millions of dollars.” As for the healthcare opt-out payments, Dunford said, “On the surface, that may look like a giveaway.” But he said the payments make financial sense because the district saves about $15,000 for each employee that it doesn’t have to cover. “We’ve taken a principled approach to containing employee salaries and benefits,” said board president Michael Hogan. “I realize the rate of change hasn’t been fast enough for some people but progress has been made.” According to a report

seat, issued the following statement on the subject: “I strongly support local control by the cities of Del Mar, Solana Beach, San Diego and the County of San Diego to protect this regional asset,” Danon said. Day said he had written to all five supervisors to consider discussing a partnership and heard back from everyone but Slater-Price. In the letter, he wrote that a partnership “would not create any financial or legal burden for the County of San Diego but rather serve to provide local control and leadership for this valuable community asset.” Day said he has been discussing alternatives with the governor’s office and the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA), which oversees the agricultural associations.

CDFA Spokesman Steve Lyle said on Oct. 19 they have been working with fairs for the past 18 months “to be more entrepreneurial from the business point of view while still being a state institution and following the rules.” On Monday, Jay Van Rein of the CDFA, added that the idea of local partnerships is what we are encouraging” and called the fact that the San Diego supervisors and fair board are talking about meeting “a positive sign.” He also noted that Governor Jerry Brown’s recent reappointment of Day to the fair board is an “expression of his confidence in his leadership and creativity.” Editor’s note: There is no relationship between Adam Day and Kathy Day, who wrote this story.

by district staff, the new agreements with employees and managers won’t increase the district’s labor costs over the next three years, because the costs will be offset by staff reductions and “other management actions.” This year, the report said, the district is spending $6.164 million on labor costs, and the labor budget in 2015 is projected to be $6.101 million. “Therefore, during the term of the MOU (memorandum of understanding), no rate increases will be required to fund labor costs,” the report said. The board also voted Thursday to raise the retirement age and cut pension benefits for employees hired after Dec. 13. Currently, employees can retire at age 55 and receive 2.7 percent of their pay for each year of service with the district. Under the change adopted by the board, new hires will receive 2 percent per year of service, and can’t retire until age 60. The state Legislature has also passed new retirement rules, which allow public employees to retire at 62 with 2 percent per year of service. The state rules will apply to any employees hired by the Santa Fe Irrigation District who have never been part of the state retirement system before, while the rules the district approved Thursday will apply to new hires who have been part of the state retirement system at a previous job. In other discussion Thursday, the board considered potential water rate increases that could be imposed next year. The district’s current budget includes a 3 percent

rate increase starting Jan. 1 to cover an anticipated increase in the cost of imported water, which is water the district buys to serve its 22,000 customers in Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Fairbanks Ranch. However, according to a staff report, even with the 3 percent increase, the district will be $14 million short of the $60 million budgeted for capital improvements over the next 10 years. To close the gap, district staff said, an additional increase of 7.1 percent is needed, for a total of a 10.1 percent hike on Jan. 1. Directors could either implement the full increase at their November meeting, or close part of the funding gap by selling bonds, which would require debt payments but allow for a smaller rate increase. Irvin said the board is struggling to keep rates low while maintaining its water delivery and treatment system. “How are we going to do both? That’s the bottom line.” If the district doesn’t fund its capital improvement program, said Dunford, “We’re not doing our job, we’re abdicating our responsibility. We need to step up and support that program.” General manager Michael Bardin said he will bring the board a rate proposal to consider at its November meeting. The district has raised rates a total of 68 percent over the past five years, citing increasing costs for imported water as the main factor behind the rate hikes.

ROUNDABOUTS continued from page 1 Fellow board members agreed that a community meeting would be helpful to let people know about the process and gain additional input. The EIR would carry a 60-day public comment period, although if those 60 days fall within the upcoming holiday season, Holler said they may request an extension. The Association’s long history with this project goes back to around 2002. That year the Association installed a traffic counter on Del Dios Highway as it was concerned about increasing commuter traffic. At that time, traffic totaled 20,000 average daily trips on a two-lane road designated for more around 12,000 trips. The county’s study of roundabouts was prompted by an Escondido citizen who requested the county install traffic signals. During the process, it was discovered that roundabouts were a potential alternative traffic solution. A Covenant-wide meeting in 2003 resulted in the Association submitting a request for roundabouts to the county and the next year the Association contributed $125,000 toward a project study. The first roundabout design meeting was held in 2005, followed by more in 2006. The first draft of the EIR circulated in 2008 and in 2010 it was revised to include lighting. The final draft will include all of the comments received during public input and responses from the county on each of those comments and issues. While traffic counts on Del Dios are down to about 16,000 daily trips, it is still very difficult for people who live off of connecting streets to get out onto the highway, Holler said. Of the three proposed roundabouts, Holler said the Via de la Valle intersection is the most complicated. It would result in a realignment of Las Colinas to move it farther south to intersect at a more 90-degree angle with Via de la Valle. Additionally, a cul-de-sac would be created on La Fremontia (currently a loop street) and the Village Church would lose a signifi-

cant portion of its parking lot. El Montevideo would be the only four-way roundabout while the other two would be three-way. The roundabouts will be 102-110 feet in diameter with a 16-foot lane and a 12- to 15- foot-wide mountable apron. The apron is necessary to allow trucks with long trailers to circle through, mounting the curb if necessary. Each roundabout will also have a 48- to 54-foot landscaped center. At the roundabouts, there will be a push buttonactivated crossing lighting that is accessible at two heights for both a pedestrian and a mounted equestrian. At the push of the button, lighting about 400 to 500 feet away will turn on to warn oncoming drivers of horses or pedestrians crossing. There will also be inpavement lighting on the crosswalks, similar to those seen on Del Mar’s Camino Del Mar. The in-pavement lighting is shielded so it only shines out to vehicles. Director Rochelle Putnam said the Association’s trails and recreation committee worked with the county on the crossings and the lighting plan, making sure the lights would not frighten horses. “They were really responsive,” Putnam said of county staff. “The committee is really excited about (the roundabout crossings) because it improves equestrian safety…It’s such a significant improvement at El Camino Del Norte because you really have to be an expert rider to cross there. This really opens up the trails.” Holler said while they still need to review the final EIR, they know in advance of possible significant issues with the roundabouts that will need to be addressed. He said possible issues include additional right-ofway acquisitions that the county would acquire through eminent domain, impacts to adjacent properties, traffic disruptions during construction and the La Fremontia changes. RSF Association Director Larry Spitcaufsky requested that the Association staff find out as much as they can about the impacts to properties immediately adjacent to the intersections.

Ramirez’s solo work is a departure from the music he’s known for doing with Sublime With Rome, he said. “There are so many elements that influenced the songs, from being flat broke in a van to sitting at Eric Wilson’s house jamming with him,” said Ramirez of his solo album, which he will perform at the upcoming Belly Up show. “It’s like a ‘90s record,” he said. “So many elements, stages, styles and inspirations. It’s going to sound like, ‘This dude has been everywhere listening to all sorts of stuff.’” Ramirez is by no means neglecting Sublime by going on a solo tour. The day after his tour as Rome ends, he heads to Hawaii and Brazil to play with Wilson and Gaugh. “I’m going to play in Sublime until the day I die hopefully,” said Ramirez. “It’s just so fun.” For more information about Rome’s upcoming show and to buy tickets, call the Belly Up at (858) 481-8140 or visit rome/.

Some say Bice is among the best for Italian cuisine BY KELLEY CARLSON or an authentic Italian experience in “America’s Finest City,” people can turn to Bice Ristorante, in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter. From the food to the employees and the atmosphere, Bice (pronounced “Bee-chey”) strives to re-create a slice of life from the boot-shaped peninsula in southern Europe. “We want to give the experience of more than only dinner,” said Mario Cassineri, executive chef and partner. The establishment’s roots are bona fide Italian, as the first Bice (a nickname for the original owner, Beatrice Ruggeri) opened in 1926 in Milan, and eventually made its way to the States. Decades later, the San Diego operation, which began its current incarnation three years ago, serves Italian cuisine steeped in tradition, yet provides a modern and sleek style of decor. Guests won’t find red-andwhite checkered tablecloths; instead, white and off-white linens are layered on top of each other, with fall-themed centerpieces of mini pumpkins and candles. Gauzy, creamcolored curtains frame tall windows; sepiatoned images stand out along the white walls. Autumnal-colored candles, jack-o-lanterns and wine bottles accent dark, square shelves. Bice Ristorante provides several areas for seating. Patrons can celebrate the daily happy hour in the bar/lounge, where there are several tables, a dozen bar seats and two TVs. From 5 to 7 p.m., items are $5, from the well drinks, house wines and the

cocktail of the month, to the gourmet bar food menu, which includes Wagyu Beef Carpaccio on a Himalayan Sea Salt Rack and Signature Bice Lobster Crispy “Pizza.” In the other direction is the dining room, where patrons can dine intimately or in small groups. Lounge music in the style of artists such as Thievery Corporation plays in the background. The dining room is also home to the seven-seat cheese bar, which additionally serves about five types of imported salami and happy hour specials. To truly get a taste of Bice, Cassineri recommends sampling the Italian cheeses. “Our menu is big, there is a lot of choice,” he said. There are 35 from which to choose, and

people who have a hard time narrowing their favorites can get advice from Chef Francesca Penoncelli, who is nearly always behind the counter. The dinner menu contains a number of selections, too, but it’s broken down into several courses. A person may start with antipasti such as Carpaccio di Bufala con Rafano e Topinambur Croccanti — thinly sliced buffalo carpaccio with mustard leaf salad and sunchoke chips in a horseradish and Dijon dressing. For the primi piatti (first course), there are dishes such as the Orzotto all’Aragosta e Burratina, which is “risotto style” barley with Maine lobster, tomato and burrata cheese. And for the secondi piatti, entrees include Filetto di Branzino alla Mediterranea Cotto Sul Cedro ed Essenza di Tartufo, Caponata Tiepida di Verdure — Mediterranean sea bass cooked on a cedar wood plank and finished with grape tomatoes and a fresh herb truffle emulsion served with caponata. Everything is made to order, Cassineri said, so vegetarians and those who require gluten-free diets don’t need to worry. This week, there will be pumpkin and mushroom delights. Recently, Bice received its $3,000-a-pound truffles from Alba, Italy, and concocted entrees such as the Risotto Carnaroli “Parmigiana,” with 28-monthsaged Parmesan and truffle shavings. “We try to stay on top all the time with new products coming in, what’s new on the market,” Cassineri said.

From the main dining room, customers can see into the wine room.

The bar/lounge is one of two places where guests can enjoy happy hour.

The event will also honor beloved community member Mike Ramirez, who passed away earlier this year. Today, more than 150 families in San Diego are facing the tragedy of ALS. The bike tour starts and fin- An Open House for the Bike 4 Mike event was ishes at the Plaza de Mexico at recently held at Ranch Cycles. Visit www. the Del Mar Fairgrounds, offer- ing distances of 10, 25, and 50 miles Stationary spin bikes will be available for hourly classes offered by Bodyrok and Dean Grafos. The event, which opens for registration at 6 a.m., will also include vendor booths, music, a Mexican Fiesta and Beer Garden at the finish. In 2009, a dear member of the San Diego community, Michael Ramirez, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive disorder that destroys nerve cells that control voluntary muscle movement, and eventually causes paralysis. ALS is currently untreatable and incurable. Over the years, Mike’s undeniable charisma and community leadership earned him the nickname “The Godfather.” After his diagnosis in 2009, a foundation was established in order to raise research money for the treatment and cure for ALS, and with Mike at the helm, it seemed only fit to be named “Team Godfather.” Mike once said, “I have never once asked, ‘Why me?’ I wouldn’t want this to happen to anyone else.” Mike’s story is proof that life is a gift, and everyone can make a difference. Although Mike recently passed away in April 2012, the legacy of his dedication and commitment to finding a cure for ALS is carried on through Team Godfather and his loyal community of supporters in San Diego and beyond. In fact, Team Godfather has now set a goal of raising $1 million by 2017.

Music Review: The Abrams Brothers a delightful surprise at Community Concerts of RSF BY DR. JACK WHEATON One of the joys of the Community Concert Series is the constant surprises our audiences receive when in attendance. I can’t remember one concert in five years in which I was bored or disappointed, but one of the biggest surprises was the recent performance of The Abrams Brothers — three young men, ages 22, 19, and 22 (John, James and Elijah) — guitar: John; amplified violin: James; electric and acoustic bass: Elijah. One-and-a-half hours from these three boys — are you kidding? No, I’m not kidding and they played (well) in every genre except classical, which The Abrams Brothers performing for R. Roger Rowe they didn’t bother with, but School students. Photos/Jon Clark I’m sure they would have done something in the classical genre very well too. We heard Southern Gospel, Blue Grass, early jazz (Irving Berlin’s “Lady Be Good”), the Blues, Country Western, Appalachian Music, Folk, etc. I’ve never attended a program with greater diversity in style — stage demeanor and body language outstanding! Dynamics not too loud or too soft, program introductions and comments very natural, sometimes humorous, and always professional. What else would you expect from a group of young players — well tutored, fourth generation musicians. Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, Dolly Parton, and many other Southern music artists have all been blown away by their talent, the program, and the beautiful honesty and natural skill displayed here. Humility, a rare commodity these days, particularly among musical artists, was constantly demonstrated by these three Canadian musicians. Now, a critic like myself is always supposed to find something wrong with the program, the presentation, the dynamics, the interpretation of the musical styles, etc. I’m sorry, but the only thing I could find was the bass player wore his hat indoors while playing — but very hip! The next concert will be held in RSF on Nov. 9. See page 12 of this newspaper or visit or call Holly Wilson at 858-523-9585 for more information.

We especially love our new tagline — Moving Pictures, Moving Minds.” In addition to the festival, other year-round programs of Pacific Arts Movement include a weeklong Spring Showcase, Reel Voices (a documentary filmmaking bootcamp for youth), DigiFest (a free online showcase of feature-length films), and Drive-By Cinema (a new experimental mobile cinema project).

The AAUW meeting will be 6:30 p.m. Nov. 8 at the Cardiff Library, 2081 Newcastle Avenue. A brown bag dinner at 6 p.m. precedes the meeting. Bonnie Biggs, vice president of Love on a Leash and Professor Emeritus at California State University, San Marcos will bring her dog Koshi, a Catahoula Leopard Dog who was rescued from Hurricane Katrina when she was a year old. Barbara Laurito will bring her dog Bella who is a rescue from the Oceanside animal shelter. Both dogs are certified Therapy Dogs who visit nursing homes, hospitals, hospice, libraries and schools to provide emotional support. They put a smile on someone’s face, make their day a little brighter, or bring back a cherished memory. Emerging research indicates that the simple act of petting a dog can lower blood pressure and change brain chemistry. Children who regularly read to dogs can improve their reading skills by up to 12 percent. Membership in the American Association of University Women is open to all graduates who hold an associate or higher degree from a regionally accredited college or university.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

RSF’s new Rancho Belvedere development offers spectacular high-end, luxury estates BY KELLEY CARLSON There’s a new development on the rise in Rancho Santa Fe. Consisting of two estates and 14 buildable lots, Rancho Belvedere — which means “beautiful view” in Italian — is situated on about 40 acres of rolling hills, just southeast of The Bridges off Aliso Canyon Road. The residential parcels and homes in this guard-gated community are currently on the market. According to Jason Barry of Barry Estates, the project was three years in the making, and much of the homes’ design was inspired by the owners’ Italian heritage. The estates incorporate stone from the southern European country, and have large windows and skylights that permit abundant natural lighting. “These are high-end, amazing luxury estates,” Barry emphasized. The larger of the two is Villa Italco, at 18138 Pacifica Ranch Drive, which is listed for $15.995 million. Its developer is Pacifica Enterprises. Inside the spacious main house are six bedrooms, plus additional rooms that can be converted for such use as an exercise room, office, and game room. A spiral staircase in the play room leads to a loft, and a series of steps leads to a subterranean wine cellar. Other indoor features include electronically-controlled lift and glide doors that surround the outdoor living room, a fresh filtered air system, high ceilings and double insulated walls with a sound board. A self-contained, two-plus-bedroom guest house is attached, which also has a full kitchen and living room. An outside recreation room has many of the amenities of a restaurant kitchen, such as steamers, a pizza oven, a salamander, bread machine, commercial ovens, a steak grill, filtered water and a cooktop. From the south-facing patio, owners and their guests can see all the way to La Jolla’s University Towne Centre while lounging by a pool that incorporates waterfalls, a grotto spa, “lazy river,” water slides, underwater music and a children’s area. Also on the 2.06-gross-acre property is a detached secondary guest house, a seven-pluscar garage and a 27-camera security system. The other home for sale is a Tuscan-themed estate at 7222 Pacifica Ranch Hills Road, priced at $12.995 million. The main residence includes seven to eight bedroom suites, a theater, full prep kitchen and gourmet kitchen, and an office. In addition, there is a resortstyle pool on the crest-top site that encompasses 2.646 gross acres and features expansive views. Along with the properties that contain the estates, there are 14 lots and parcels that are buildable and “ready to go,” according to Barry. Planned with families in mind, they average between 2 and 2 1/2 acres, at prices between $1.549 million and $2.999 million. Horses are permitted. Among the benefits for those who purchase one of the properties is a fully paid membership into The Bridges, which includes access to the golf course and restaurants. “It’s like an extension to The Bridges, but a different level,” Barry said. Children in the community may attend elementary school in the Rancho Santa Fe School District and high school at Torrey Pines, according to Barry. For more information about Rancho Belvedere, go to, or call (858) 756-4024.

Girl Scout helps bring soccer gear to South African Children When Alexa Alyeshmerni, 14, a freshman at Del Norte High School, learned that boys and girls in South Africa enjoy play soccer more than any other sport, even though some had never played with a real soccer ball, she decided to focus her Girl Scout Silver Project on creating a donation drive for soccer gear. Her brother had just returned from a medical rotation in the remote village of Tugela Ferry, South Africa and described children playing with homemade soccer balls out of plastic grocery bags. She learned that playing soccer was a great way for them to channel their creative energy and avoid risky behaviors that in turn could lead to crime, HIV, and tuberculosis. Alexa made various contacts with local soccer leagues, soccer academies and sent emails to friends and family. She established a donation box at the local Sport Authority and within two short weeks had amassed enough new and used gear to fill three large suitcases. With the help of her brother, Dr. Daniel Alyeshmerni and his colleagues with the Yale/Stanford Johnson and Johnson Global Health scholars program, medical residents will be bringing welcome soccer equipment to the local children in Msinga, South Africa. Alexa looks forward to making her “Soccer 4 South Africa” an annual drive. She chose the project because it meant so much to her to help an underprivileged child have fun – or even achieve their dreams. “Perhaps delivering a soccer ball could go to the next ‘world cup star!”’

Glenn’s Film Review/ Commentary

‘Flight of the Butterflies’ BY GLENN PALMEDO-SMITH Attention all grandparents, busy parents, aunts and uncles — if there’s one motion picture you must take an important child in your life to, it’s Flight of the Butterflies! While we all complain of the horrendous media our kids are subjected to, we must also support important and conscientious productions like this. Flight of the Butterflies, distributed by Warner Brothers, is a cinematic scientific adventure of nature, life and death, mystery of live, beauty and simplicity and a detective story; all in a glorious IMAX experience. Director Mike Slee takes us on a three-generation, 2,500-mile migration trek of the monarch butterfly, first in March, (as colorful caterpillars munch the plentiful milkweeds of Texas), then to Canada and the northern U.S. where the food source continues aplenty and air is cooler in late summer. This generation once again lays eggs, then perishes, where we again follow resulting caterpillars, again munching their Glenn Palmedo-Smith way to obesity, quickly entering their chrysalis period, whereby these creatures shed one existence, morphing again into stunningly beautiful butterflies. This generation, much like college kids returning at winter holiday season to ancestral homes, commences on an inconceivable long trek back to an aerie at 10,000 feet high in eastern Michoacán’s mountains, near Angangueo, Mexico. Meanwhile, the quiet milkweed gets a free pollination ride, even more smartly, promoting its species via the butterfly. I feel this film subconsciously teaches our young that we all have an obligation to continue our own marvelous trek, our own bloodline of family, to the betterment of the species. It’s a youthful lesson of unselfishness, that there is a greater purpose in this amazing life experience that connects us all and that there is meaningfulness in our own, sometimes felt, mundane existence. The film is told via reenactments of Dr. Fred Urquhart’s almost 40-year quest of this amazing wonder, portrayed by Gordon Pinsent, (his wife is played by Megan Follows). He proves this long 100 miles per day trek when he has student scientists marking the wings of butterflies with sticky numbered tape, after being netted individually in northern America; whereby he later finds these same markings high in Michoacán’s sacred grounds. The film was produced by Canadians with financing from Mexico. After seeing this film, many Americans will now include on their bucket list to make their own switch-backed journey to witness the arrival of the Monarchs at the Michoacán aerie, a desolate spot so densely populated by butterflies that the 100-plus foot trees seem to be made of them. I suggest you consider the 44-minute experience at the IMAX Theater at the Rubin H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park. Allow an extra hour for a visit to the interactive science displays and securing early “center” seats. Also, consider visiting the San Diego Veteran’s Museum and Memorial Center for a local surprise. Make a day of it at Balboa Park, (museum visits, people watching, lunch at the Prado and a movie), truly gems of our great city. Glenn Palmedo-Smith is a multiple Emmy Award-winning film director, producer and writer. He has also received many national “Best of Fests” awards. He is the author of Discovering Ellis Ruley, Crown Publishing. If you’d like to share comments with the writer, email him at dinifilms@

Your Family Matters: Getting ready for Halloween BY DR. KEITH KANNER It’s that time of the year again where most kids are busy daydreaming about getting ready for another Halloween. Dressing up, decorating the house, and making things “spooky” is Dr. Keith Kanner all in the October weeks prior to the “big day.” However, the spirit of Halloween can be both a fun or scary experience depending upon certain precautions that parents need to take. To begin with, costumes can be both amusing and fun but also quite frightening when considering the age of the child. For the under 6 year olds, too much exposure to costumes or decorations involving blood, guts, or mangled body parts, as well as too scary a costume, can evoke both extreme anxiety and bad dreams. In some cases, such over-stimulation can cause fears which can last up to a month or longer. Parents of this group of children need to both be careful what they allow their child to wear, as well as what they are exposed to during the Halloween ritual. It is recommended that this group begin trick or treating as early as possible and end before the older children get onto the streets wearing graphic costumes and engaging in possible pranks. Obviously, parents need to stay very close to the children in this age group. In addition, when approaching homes with

creepy decorations, be sensitive as to whether your child will be too affected by the decor and, if so, you may wish to miss that particular house. Haunted houses are also not recommended for the under 6 year olds for the same reasons as mentioned regarding costumes and decorations for children in this age group. For the 6 to 11 year olds, it is suggested that parents also stay close by as they venture onto the streets due to possible dangers that could occur due to group behaviors and the effects of anonymity that wearing costumes can cause – for example, children are more likely to act out if their identity is masked. In addition, impulsiveness increases in numbers. Therefore, parents are needed to safeguard the grade school-aged child. Regarding the early to middle adolescents, they will most likely try to ditch any parent who attempts to tag along, but it is still suggested that the parents of this age group are still somewhere present in the neighborhood – perhaps in a parked car at the end of the street – here, the adolescent has some independence but also some supervision to help keep them from getting into any trouble. Hopefully, the post-16 year olds have given up trick or treating, so this should not be an issue for most parents. As always, parents need to check through the candy and toss away anything that is unwrapped or seems questionable. Furthermore, limits need to be placed on the amount of candy eaten in order to avoid potential negative health effects. Following these guidelines should assist in a fun and happy Halloween.

Safe Halloween Planning Key Points: 1. For the under 6 year olds, be careful about exposure to scary costumes/ houses. 2. Start the evening early for the small children to avoid older children antics. 3. Up to preadolescence, parents need to be chaperones for safety. 4. For the early to middle adolescent, position yourself at a checkpoint. Always check through candy and limit consumption. Dr. Keith Kanner is host/anchor - Your Family Matters - WSRADIO; contributor to LifeChanger, Extra TV; a syndicated columnist; author of “Your Family Matters — Solutions to Common Parental Dilemmas” (in press); board certified & licensed clinical child, adolescent, & adult psychologist & psychoanalyst; Assistant clinical professor of psychiatry, University of California, San Diego School of Medicine; National Board Member KidsKorps USA; and a father of three great kids.

We are so proud of her accomplishments – on the tennis court, in local real estate, and in the charitable work she does with so much passion.” That charitable organization is The Dina Humanitarian Foundation, which Holladay founded with her late husband, Dr. Phil A. Higginbottom. Proceeds from her tennis philanthropy and real estate sales directly benefit the foundation, providing medical aid, education and basic supplies to the needy population of Fiji. The foundation also sends resident doctors from Scripps Green Hospital to the remote islands each year to gain hands-on experience in infectious diseases. In the Fijian language, “Dina” means trust and integrity, according to Holladay. “It is this human quality that is the cornerstone of our work and the value that drives our foundation,” she explains. “I am so proud of the work Dina does to bring items of great importance to the natives.” To contact Terry Holladay call 760-4453540 or send email to
