RSF’s Katie Myron wins another Senior facility world title, national championship aims to be ‘non-urban’ K in character Proposed Hacienda Del Mar is on Prop A land, may require city-wide vote to develop BY KAREN BILLING A senior housing development is planned for the vacant lot adjacent to the polo fields on Via de la Valle — whether or not the project is subject to a city-wide vote remains a topic of debate. The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board’s Prop A subcommittee met on Nov. 21 to discuss Prop A as it relates to the proposed facility, Hacienda Del Mar.

Rancho Santa Fe Foundation’s easy way to maximize giving through December 2016 With the generosity of one local couple, there is a special opportunity to double certain philanthropic efforts of the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation through Dec. 31, 2016. It is through a challenge to help the Community Impact Fund, a fund RSF Foundation started in 2006 to turn local vision into action throughout San Diego County. The Community Impact Fund is supported by donors who want to use their collective donations to address critical challenges throughout the community. Each year, RSF Foundation makes grants to nonprofits in the community that have been vetted by staff and an advisory committee; these are in response to funding requests for high-impact projects. Since the fund began, RSF Foundation has granted over $1.6 million to 67 nonprofits making a positive impact throughout the community. In honor of the Foundation’s 35th Anniversary, Rancho Santa Fe residents Molly and Mike Gregoire have provided a dollar-for-dollar match to this Community Impact Fund for up to $35,000 in donations through Dec. 31, 2016. This matching grant has been deemed the 35 for 35


Two years ago, RSF Foundation identified a need for seniors to have access to healthy affordable lunches. Through a multi-year grant and collaboration with other local nonprofits, Dreams for Change and Interfaith Community Services , the North County Senior Connections (NCSC) was born. Challenge. When donors have joined forces and resources with other philanthropists through the Community Impact Fund, effective change has happened. Two years ago, for example, RSF Foundation identified a need for seniors to have access to healthy affordable lunches. Through a multi-year grant and collaboration with other local nonprofits, Dreams for Change and Interfaith

Community Services , the North County Senior Connections (NCSC) was born. Each week, the NCSC Thyme Together Food Truck prepares made-to-order lunches, offers socialization and hosts educational opportunities for vulnerable seniors in North County. So far, NCSC has served more than 13,000 meals to more than 1,100 seniors. As one NCSC participant said, “I was a recluse and very unhappy and lonely

[before coming to this program.] Now I feel very alive, interested in people who are so pleasant. [I] have joined the Social Club.” In 2015, Camp Pendleton received help from the Community Impact Fund, as well. When the government ended funding of their drop-in childcare center, the Armed Services YMCA offered to help take over operations. RSF Foundation, through the Community Impact Fund, made a grant to support the hiring of the center’s staff. This center now serves more than 500 children each month; this Challenge, which doubles donations, is a way to enhance such local efforts. Collective giving paired with the expertise of RSF Foundation staff and directors enabled those opportunities and more. Due to the generosity of the Gregoires, donors can empower even more of these grants. When an individual gives, whether it be $35, $350, or $3,500 during the 35 for 35 Challenge, it is a collective effort to address community needs and challenges in a collaborative way.

Student uses bracelets to help South African village BY KAREN BILLING Solana Santa Fe fifth grader Leah Banuelos, 10, is putting her passion for fashion toward a very worthy cause. Through her nonprofit Kids Helping Kids, Leah is selling her custom-made essential oil beaded bracelets to raise money for mini solar power systems for a small rural Zulu village in South Africa. In the village of Mpunulo, people live in very small huts and rely on candlelight and fire to cook food and light the night. Recently, a candle fell inside one of the huts, resulting in a fire that destroyed the hut and left three children badly burned. “I want the village to have solar panels to use so that kids don’t get burned again,” Leah said. Three Solana Santa Fe families will be traveling to South Africa this December. The Snell, Beane and Banuelos families plan to visit the village on Christmas Eve to distribute the solar systems and other gifts, as well as participate in a traditional Zulu feast. Leah has created an Etsy shop for the Kids Helping Kids bracelets and is also getting the word out through an Instagram account, @KidsHelpingKidz. Dream Girls, a store in Ocean Beach, is also selling Leah’s bracelets. The idea for Kids Helping Kids was born in Roderick Gayta’s fifth grade class, where each child is given a year to complete a “Passion Project.” Students’ projects can be anything they like as long as it brings a positive change to the world. Leah has a big interest in fashion and

The small solar systems cost $65 a piece and provide two lights and an electrical

plug. The systems don’t need an electrician to install, they can be placed on top of the roof of the small hut. Leah is hoping to raise about $1,000 and is about halfway to her goal. In addition to the bracelets, Leah is also selling her handmade, essential oil-scented play doh. “These are really sweet stocking stuffers and smell sooo good,” Leah writes on her

Leah has spent a couple of months making bracelets and has recruited several young artisans from Solana Santa Fe: fifth grader Lily Snell, third grader Derek Snell, kindergartner Gwyn Snell, third grader Barcelona Beane and her second grade sister Angelina Banuelos. Preschoolers Cade Banuelos and William Snell also “help.” “I just love crafts,” said Lily of her willingness to help out her friend. “I like making the bracelets because it’s relaxing, calming and stress-relieving,” Leah said, noting that she looks at each bracelet as an art project. The village of Mpunulo has a special connection to Leah’s mother Jolene. Jolene grew up in South Africa and a member of the Mpunulo tribe, Rosie, was her beloved nanny. Rosie and her children lived at Jolene’s home and became like members of her family. While Rosie has passed away, Jolene still keeps in touch with her children. “Everyone in the community is talking about our visit because they all want to see Rosie’s ‘grandkids,’” Jolene said. What started out as a small gathering will now be a village-wide party — Jolene is helping coordinate the event from Rancho Santa Fe. At the party, Leah is looking forward to learning traditional Zulu dances and trying out the new tastes in a traditional Zulu meal.

Tyler James is a volunteer mentor in Durban, South Africa with the organization Surfers Not Street Children.

Tyler James is also a competitive surfer.

TPHS grad impacts lives through surfing and mentorship Torrey Pines High School Class of 2015 graduate Tyler James has committed to serve for a second year in Durban, South Africa with Surfers Not Street Children (SNSC). SNSC fuses surfing and mentorship to empower street children to build a solid foundation and sustainable future. Tyler is a volunteer mentor at the Surf House where a group of 12 former street children live and receive economic support, counseling, encouragement and mentorship to lead successful lives. He is also a coach at the Surf Club, an outreach project in the community surrounding Durban’s beachfront. Using a life-skills curriculum, street children are engaged through surfing with a focus on diverting them from the perils of the streets. The program operates

every day with morning and afternoon sessions, serving over 90 girls and boys each month. Tyler has been combining his passions of surfing and serving since he was 14 years old on summer mission trips to Nicaragua and Guatemala. In high school he established himself as a competitive surfer, rising up to the #2 spot in the NSSA Southwest Division. He even went on to take home his first paycheck at a Junior Pro Event. During his senior year at Torrey Pines, Tyler began to weigh his options of giving it a go on the WSL Tour or a more traditional route into college. “Nothing seemed right”, said Tyler, “and my dad introduced me to idea of doing a gap year in South Africa.” Tyler applied and was

accepted into the Christian Surfers Africa Leadership Training (CSALT) program in Jeffery’s Bay, South Africa. One month later he found himself serving at the 2015 J-Bay Open and witnessed first-hand the shark attack on Mick Fanning in the finals. “Watching that happen and then seeing the replay made me rethink how short life is and that any day could be your last, said Tyler. That experience changed Tyler’s perspective and brought a desire to stay in South Africa and serve after graduating from CSALT. A “chance” meeting with Tom Hewitt, founder and director of Surfers Not Street Children, in lost luggage upon his initial arrival in South Africa blossomed into the next phase of Tyler’s journey. He came back SEE SURFING, A24

Local author discusses impact of drugs in latest book BY KRISTINA HOUCK From aspirin to antibiotics, the development of drugs has truly changed the world. After decades of studying and teaching biology, local resident Irwin Sherman is now detailing the history and impact of drugs in a new book. “Drugs That Changed the World: How Therapeutic Agents Shaped Our Lives” discusses about two dozen drugs, detailing how they were developed and how they have impacted the world. The book, published by CRC Press, looks at antibiotics, anesthesia, hormone therapies, psychotropic drugs and a variety of other vaccines. “It’s appreciation of the people and the product that I wanted to get across,” Sherman said. A New York native, Sherman studied biology at City College of New York. He first became fascinated with infectious disease agents during a two-year tour of duty with the U.S. Army in Europe, where he worked in a medical laboratory. After the Army, Sherman earned his master’s and doctorate degrees from Northwestern University. He then extended his graduate studies on the biochemistry of malaria as a post-doctoral fellow at Rockefeller University.


Irwin Sherman Sherman, who is known for his studies of malaria, started as an assistant professor at the University of California, Riverside, in 1962. He served the university for 42 years and retired as acting executive vice chancellor in 2004. A biology professor emeritus, Sherman was a visiting investigator at Scripps Research Institute from 2004 to 2012. He currently serves as a visiting professor at UC San Diego. Sherman has written several books, including one that discussed 12 diseases and another that looked at malaria vaccines. “That started my interest on writing about disease and history,” he said. The concept for his latest book came about while writing “The Malaria Genome Projects: Promise, Progress, and Prospects” in 2012 for Imperial College Press. At

that time, the editor sent him a proposal from pharmacologists interested in writing a book on drugs. “I was intrigued by the prospect of discussing drugs,” he recalled. “I thought I might be able to write a better book.” Sherman has since set out to do just that. Already an expert on malaria vaccines, Sherman began reading about other drugs that have changed the world. “I learned so much,” Sherman said. “I can’t tell you how fascinating it was for me to do the research to write this book. It was such an enlightening experience, and I really wanted to transmit that enlightenment to the readers.” Sherman hopes the book will not only educate, but entertain, readers. The book is intended for a general audience, for anybody interested in science and history. “I hope readers learn something about the drugs that are in their medicine cabinet and how they came to be,” he said. “I also hope readers begin to appreciate the people who develop these drugs.” “Drugs That Changed the World: How Therapeutic Agents Shaped Our Lives” is available on

Clark turns struggles into stories for new book “Damsel in Dis Mess” is out now BY CHRIS SAUR etween divorce, the economy tanking her business and a cross country move, Encinitas author Patty Clark has faced a lot of difficulties in her 63 years. But out of her struggles has always come creation, first in the form of art and design, and more recently in her writing. At first, Clark was just taking her frustrations out on paper and then typing her stories up and saving them to her computer, After a couple of years, she began emailing the stories to her friends, posting them to Facebook and then creating her online blog “damsel in dis mess.” Now, a collection of those blog posts has been published in her book “Damsel in Dis Mess: Girlie Antics and Other Shenanigans,” which is available now on Amazon and CreateSpace. Clark’s stories find humor in daily situations, and she has been compared to a modern-day Erma Bombeck. “Ever since I’ve been writing I’ve had similar comments from people. First, ‘how do you come up with this stuff?’ and second ‘your stories are so relatable, that’s why we like reading,’ ” Clark told this newspaper. “Even though I’m writing about frustration, I try to make it uplifting so people enjoy reading it.” A blurb on the back of the book has a comment from a reader who says “you write


stuff no one would have the guts to say.” Clark, who moved to Encinitas last year and lives with her boyfriend Bob, was born in Detroit, Mich. Drawing from an early age, she found herself in a career as a wall designer. While struggling in her marriage, Clark used art as a way to get her feelings out in a positive way. “(Art and writing) have always been about the outlet,” she said. “When I was married and frustrated, I saw these miniature wooden chairs on vacation in Colorado and came home and made 40 of them myself. They sat in the attic until my divorce and then I ended up selling those to a store.” She also paints and does other wood art pieces and, while still living in Michigan, enjoyed side work she picked up creating displays for stores and whole malls. But living as a single mother, Clark was still struggling to find her way and eventually moved to California, where her two oldest daughters, Avril and Lindsay, had already migrated. “When my youngest (Hannah who is now 25) was just entering middle school, I thought to myself I have to move to California because if I don’t now, I never will,” Clark said. “People thought I was out of my mind but I packed it up and moved.” Originally moving to Upland in the early 2000s, Clark set up a new wall design company, but five years in, it was hit hard by the recession. “It blew me down to nothing. I was pulling my hair out thinking, what am I going to do?”


Encinitas author Patty Clark just released her first book “Damsel in Dis Mess: Girlie Antics and Other Shenanigans.”

Clark said. In looking at what to do, Clark took an offer from a former client in real estate who invited her to come learn the business. Within a week, Clark realized it wasn’t for her, but she also discovered something else: “I was sitting there and jotting all of my frustrations down on little notes, then when I got home I would throw it all on the

computer. “Before long I had all of these stories. I was just taking my frustrations out on paper, it was better than therapy, which I couldn’t afford anyway.” Clark joined writers’ groups and kept up writing off and on through a series of different careers. After Hannah went off to college, Clark moved to Oceanside where she worked at a bed and breakfast. At the end of the summer, the peak season, the job ended and she was again struggling to figure out what was next. At that time, with many stories saved up, a friend helped her set up a blog … and it took off quickly. “Once I started the blog, I was picked up by a Kansas newspaper after just four posts,” Clark explained. “I wrote for them for two years.” That opportunity came from word of mouth, a friend passing some of her pieces to an acquaintance who was the publisher at the Parsons Sun newspaper. At this point, many people had encouraged Clark to turn her work into a book so she spent a year sending query letters without success. That is until she partnered with Aionios Books, an upstart publisher in Carlsbad. Teaming with Aionios was the perfect marriage and the “Damsel in Dis Mess” book was soon a reality. Clark’s book launch is set for Dec. 10 at Emerald C Gallery in Coronado and “Damsel is Dis Mess” is scheduled to come out on Kindle and audiobook by the end of the year.


Codebreaker’s nephew has insights on real Alan Turing BY WALTER MEYER Sir Dermot Turing spoke at a special event Friday, Oct. 28 in the auditorium at The Scripps Research Institute about the life of his famous uncle, Alan Turing, the British codebreaker who was the subject of the 2014 movie “The Imitation Game,” starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Joanna Davies, founder, president and CEO of the San Diego Biomedical Research Institute (SDBRI) introduced the guest speaker by saying she had known Dermot a long time — they had been undergrads together. She continued, “Dermot is the ideal person to be talking about his famous uncle, Alan Turing, not only because he has access to family archives, documents, and letters being a family member of course, but he wrote his book ‘Prof, Alan Turing Decoded.’ He approaches it with a charming sensitivity that this great man’s life deserves, but he is also a scientist—he has a Ph.D. in genetics. He has done a fabulous job of translating the complexities of mathematics and the early computer science to the lay person. He is also inherently a historian what you see is the depth that allows us to better understand the work of Alan Turing in the context of the time then and now.” Sir Dermot also did a question-and-answer session Oct. 27 following a screening of “The Imitation Game” at the Landmark Theaters in Hillcrest in an event that was presented by the SDBRI with promotional assistance from Lambda Archives, San Diego’s LGBT historical research center. Alan Turing is a hero and a martyr to the gay community. After using his math skills to design


Sir Dermot Turing, nephew of famed WWII code-breaker Alan Turing, addresses an audience Oct. 28 at Scripps Research Institute. the forerunner of the German Enigma code during World War II, in 1952, he was prosecuted for gross indecency for his homosexuality and in 1954 committed suicide, many believe due to the persecution he suffered. Sir Dermot said, “He would never have wanted to be remembered for being prosecuted, I think what he would have wanted to be remembered for what he contributed to the body of knowledge and it’s quite nice to see some of that less well-known work sort of come to the fore.” In his remarks both days, Sir Dermot made it clear “The Imitation Game” should not be seen as history as he pointed out the many inaccuracies of the film. He said he could enjoy

the movie as a good drama as long as he didn’t worry about the facts and he is glad the movie shone light on his uncle’s work. Besides just being, “a gay icon, people are rediscovering his theories,” one of which was confirmed in 2014; Alan Turing’s name is showing up in citations in scientific journals again. Sir Dermot said he finds it criminal the way his uncle was treated by society and the courts once his homosexuality was known, and further finds it unfair that although Alan was granted a posthumous pardon by the Queen in 2013, the effort to pardon the 49,000 other people who were prosecuted under the same indecency law in the U.K. has hit snags in Parliament.

The movie took its title from a paper Alan Turing wrote shortly after finishing his undergraduate work at Cambridge, speculating whether a machine could ever think like a human—or imitate the way a human thinks. The term “Turing Test” is still applied to the standard by which the artificial intelligence of a machine is judged. In the 1930s, Alan Turing created an algorithm that would allow for machines to play chess, long before there was a machine capable of doing so. He kept up a lifelong correspondence with the mother of Christopher Morcom, his best friend from childhood who died young, but was probably the first love of Alan’s life. He wrote her long letters about his research into trying to program a machine to play the Japanese game “Go.” As with chess, getting a machine to play the game and getting one to actually master it to a point that it could beat a human was another thing. It was only in the last year, building on Alan’s work, that scientists created a program that enables a machine to best a human at Go. Of course the computation machines available to the scientists today are a bit more advanced that the ones Alan Turing had at his disposal. The one he was using in 1946 had 1024 bits—not bytes, bits—of memory which in the days of terabytes seems ridiculous, but the British government was so impressed with the size and power of that machine they questioned if the entire country would ever even need a second computer. Sir Dermot said he is proud and pleased that his uncle is one of the giants on whose shoulders modern scientists stand and is finally receiving due credit for his work.

Beagles rescued from puppy mill arrive at Encinitas shelter BY DEBBI BAKER It was a tail-wagging morning Nov. 21 at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society where a bevy of barking beagles were making themselves at home after just arriving from a cross-country trip. The 13 dogs, ranging from 4 months to 10 years old, were rescued from a puppy mill somewhere in the central United States where they were considered “excess inventory,” said shelter spokesman John Van Zante. Forty-two dogs were taken from the large commercial breeding operation by National Puppy Mill Rescue on Nov. 18 when they began their trip to new homes and new lives. Seven of the dogs, which were Pomeranians, were taken to a shelter in Las Vegas. All of the remaining dogs were beagles and, of those, nine had to be sent for medical care. The rest were divided between Rancho Coastal and Four Paws Coonhound Rescue in El Cajon, Van Zante said. None of the animals had been vaccinated and two of the females are possibly pregnant. Many of the dogs had spent their entire lives at the puppy mill and had never been outside their cages. “They don’t know what it’s like to live in a house,”

said Van Zante as the dogs howled and barked and explored their new surroundings. Holding one of the tiny puppies, Van Zante said the pup and his litter mates had been running and jumping in their enclosure and that it was the biggest space the dogs had ever been in. The breeding operation they were removed from was legal, but the animals did not have much a chance for a good life, Van Zante said. “If they stayed there, they don’t have much of a future,” he said. “But if they come here they become California dogs and they will find homes.” This is not the first time the non-profit shelter has taken in beagles. Last year, the organization took in 35 of the popular breed after their owner gave them up. “Every one of these is a life saved,” said Van Zante as he surveyed the now-full wing of the shelter. “At Rancho Coastal Humane Society we believe no dog should die because it was born in the wrong state.” Some of latest new arrivals will be ready for adoption in as few as 10 days.

The Nov.9 show at TPHS featured the Choir, Advanced Orchestra, Wind Ensemble and the Jazz Band.

Fall concert spotlights talent of Torrey Pines High School musicians Over 100 aspiring musicians of Torrey Pines High School performed for an enthusiastic crowd on the evening of Nov. 9. TPHS Music Director Amy Gelb led four groups of musicians to present a variety of pieces from classical to contemporary at the Fall Concert, the first concert of the 2016-2017 school year. The show featured the Choir, Advanced Orchestra, Wind Ensemble and the Jazz Band. For a dramatic opening, the Choir showed off their vocal skills through songs such as Hope (by Emily Dickinson, music by Bruce Tippette) and If You Could Hear My Voice (Jim Papoulis). The Advanced Orchestra, which consists of over 30 string instrumentalists, wowed the audience with their rendition of Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Romance In C. by Jean Sibelius and Vanishing Point by Richard Meyer. The equally-sized Wind Ensemble presented The Marriage of Figaro (overture) by

Mozart and two other contemporary pieces. The Jazz Band selected five fun-filled pieces, and the audience responded with cheers and applause. Stay tuned for the rest of the TPHS 2016-17 concert series. The next concert will be the Winter Concert in January, and the Spring Concert will be in May. Both shows will take place at the CCA Proscenium Theater. There is a $10 suggested donation per family at all concerts. All classes will perform at both of these concerts. Families with younger students interested in pursuing music in high school are encouraged to attend.

Ring Weekend captures Grade II, $200,000 Seabiscuit Handicap BY KELLEY CARLSON Jockey Drayden Van Dyke revels in his sweep of Del Mar’s stakes races on Saturday aboard Ring Weekend in the Grade II, $200,000 Seabiscuit Handicap. Ring Weekend battled Vyjack and Om down the stretch to claim victory by a head. He traveled the 1 1/16 miles on the turf in 1:42.29. “This race set up on paper that I thought would be perfect for us,” Van Dyke said. “Then it played out just that way. It was sweet. … This is the first time I’ve won two stakes in one day. Feels good.” Five-year-old Ring Weekend is owned by St. Elias Stable and West Point Thoroughbreds, and trained by H. Graham Motion. Van Dyke and Motion also teamed up to win the Grade III, $100,000 Jimmy Durante Stakes with Journey Home in the day’s supporting feature. The race was run in rainy, windy conditions, as a squall hit the area shortly before post time. Several fillies appeared to jump foam drain covers that had blown onto the grass course on the clubhouse turn. The stewards conducted an inquiry and ruled that the incident did not affect the running

Local doctor attends International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport Local resident Douglas Chang, M.D., Ph.D., Chief, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinical Professor University of California, San Diego Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, attended the 5th International Consensus Conference on Concussion in Sport held Oct. 27-28 in Berlin, Germany. The conference convenes by invitation only every four years with the major sports organizations of the world, including the Olympic Committee, NFL, FIFA, World Rugby, International Ice Hockey Federation, and the International Equestrian Federation. The purpose of the conference is twofold, according to event organizers. The first objective is “to present a summary of new evidence-based

research that covers all aspects of concussions, including definition, management, investigations, treatment, return to play protocol, prevention and knowledge transfer. “With the evidence-based research presented by the world’s experts and researchers in concussion in sport, the second objective is to reach an agreement amongst the conference participants in developing a Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sports; a document that would then be used by physicians and healthcare professionals involved in the care of injured athletes at the recreational, elite or professional level.” Look for a profile on Dr. Douglas Chang and his work in an upcoming issue of this newspaper.

Vision Research Symposium is ‘Eye Opening’


hen scientists attend scientific symposiums, they don’t typically present their “unfinished” work or interact with families directly impacted by the very diseases they are trying to cure. Yet that is exactly what happened at the 9th World Symposium on Vision Disorders hosted by The Vision of Children Foundation from Nov. 16-18 at The Grande Colonial in La Jolla. Rancho Santa Fe residents Sam and Vivian

Hardage established the Foundation in 1991 after their son was born with Ocular Albinism. At the time, there were no researchers studying this rare genetic vision disorder, for which there are no treatments and no cures. The Hardages were determined to encourage scientific research to find a cure for this congenital condition. Today, as it celebrates its 25th anniversary, Vision of Children is the foremost organization in the world

supporting research for Ocular Albinism and related vision disorders. The Foundation honored some Rancho Santa Fe residents who have donated over the years, including Linda and Marc Edwards for their support of the Foundation’s Vision Hero Program, which features young visually-impaired people. Also recognized were Foundation board members Drs. Jacki and Ken Widder, Dr. Richard Schatz of Rancho Santa Fe, and Carmel Valley resident Dr. Greg Ostrow, director of pediatric ophthalmology at Scripps Health. The symposium, called “When Vision Becomes Reality,” was hailed as a “magnificent” experience of collaboration by scientists and family members. “The interaction among scientists made this conference extremely different from others,” said Dr. Stephan Tsang, from Columbia University Medical Center in New York. “Talking with the families made it even more meaningful, giving us the inspiration to persevere.” The top vision researchers from around the world discussed published and

unpublished work. “Our main goal is to move the needle so we can improve how people see,” said Dr. Debora Farber, who is the Foundation’s Scientific Advisor and leads a team of researchers conducting groundbreaking work at UCLA Stein Eye Institute. Farber’s presentation on using byproducts of patients’ own stem cells to replace defective DNA and ultimately treat Ocular Albinism was met with much excitement. Just last month, Farber’s team announced the discovery of mutations in a second gene that can trigger this genetic vision disorder. The research, led by Dr. Alejandra Young, who also presented at the symposium, has major implications for better diagnosis and ultimately treatment for thousands of children. Basic science research is a critical step on the path to clinical treatment trials, Dr. Brian Brooks, from the National Eye Institute, noted in his presentation. Scientists at the symposium experienced the marvel of seeing their work translate into actual human benefit when Dr. Arlene Drack, from the University of Iowa, showed videos of the dramatic improvements in the

vision of children with Leber Congenital Amaurosis after gene therapy treatment. “Findings like these give us hope for a day in the not-so-distant future when many other vision diseases will be curable,” said Sam Hardage. Families impacted by vision disorders attended the scientific sessions and a special session that featured presentations by Dr. Ostrow, Molly McGinniss, a genetic counselor who works for Illumina in San Diego, and Dr. Rebecca Kammer, a low vision optometric specialist from Anaheim, Calif. “We are extremely thankful to all the symposium sponsors who enabled us to create a valuable experience for all the attendees,” said Vivian Hardage. The sponsors included the following San Diego-based families and corporations: Allergan Foundation, Bell Charitable Foundation, Epstein Family Foundation, Farrell Family Foundation, Grande Colonial La Jolla, Hornblower Cruises & Events, Isakow Family Foundation, Tamara and Roger Joseph, The Marine Room and San Diego Private Bank.

As a Rancho Santa Fe resident, I have wondered for years why we are charged disproportionately for our water usage. Has anyone ever considered how many homes are built on three acres in Solana Beach? Our average lot size of three acres contributes toward a more rural area, the freeways less congested, the air quality better, the stores less crowded, the beaches less busy among many other positives for our part of the county. When we buy, we know what our property taxes are, and will have knowledge of what they will be in the future. We know what our

mortgage will be, and have knowledge of what that will be in the future. However, paying such a premium on the higher units of water being used is not fair without determining how many homes could be build on the same size property in Solana Beach, and setting the baseline number of units allowed before paying the higher rates. The water company should use the maximum baseline of 15 HCF and multiply by the number of homes that would be built on the same size property in Solana Beach. For example, if there are 6 homes per acre in

Solana Beach, that equates to 18 homes on a three-acre lot in RSF - therefore, the 15 HCF baseline multiplied by 18 homes would allow a 270 HCF baseline for the RSF property before higher rate brackets kick in. This is what is fair. This is what RSF residents have a right, in my opinion, to pursue legally. That would not only be fair, but would also show the appreciation for all the benefits that Rancho Santa Fe and Fairbanks Ranch provide our neighbors. Curt Jaeger Rancho Santa Fe

7 commonly asked questions about Covered California TO YOUR HEALTH


pen enrollment for Covered California, the state health insurance exchange, started last month. Since taking effect in 2014, Covered California has helped to reduce the number of uninsured Californians. If this is your first time looking for coverage through the state health insurance exchange, now is the time to learn more about your options. And if you have been enrolled already, now is the time to renew your health plan or make any changes, including switching to a lower-costing one. The deadline to apply or make changes is Jan. 31, 2017. You’ll need to act sooner – by Dec. 15 – if you want to make certain your coverage begins on Jan. 1, 2017. “It’s important to learn more about your options, including physician network, prices, benefits and financial assistance available,” said Marc Reynolds, corporate senior vice president for payer relations at Scripps Health. “Take the time to carefully review all of the options presented through Covered California.” To help guide you in this process, we’ve answered some of the most commonly asked Covered California questions. Q: Who can enroll in Covered California? A: Covered California was designed for state residents who are U.S. citizens or legal U.S. residents, and do not have access to health insurance through a private company, their workplace, a family member’s employer, or a government program such as Medicare or Medi-Cal. If you aren’t covered through one of these options, you can buy health insurance through Covered California. Immigrants who are not lawfully present are not eligible to purchase a health plan through Covered California; however, they may be eligible for coverage through Medi-Cal. Q: What health plans are available? A: Throughout California, you have a choice of buying insurance from at least two but as many as six private insurance companies, depending on where you live. In San Diego County, consumers have at least five insurance companies

to choose from during open enrollment. For example, Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal Medical Center doctors are in-network providers on the Health Net HMO CommunityCare, Blue Shield HMO Trio and Blue Shield PPO health insurance plans that Covered California offers. Not all providers are in all networks. Health insurance plans are sold in four primary levels of coverage: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. While plans vary, in brief you have the option to pay more for your monthly premium and less when you use care, or pay less for your premium and more when you use care. In addition to these metal-tiered plans, a minimum coverage plan is available to people younger than 30. Q: What if I can’t afford the health insurance premiums or other costs? A: Sliding-scale financial assistance is available if you cannot afford to pay the full cost of your premiums. Depending on your income, you may qualify for government subsidies to help keep your out-of-pocket expenses down, including co-payments, or tax credits to help reduce your monthly premiums if you cannot afford to pay for your full costs. About 90 percent of Covered California enrollees get help to pay for their premiums. In San Diego County, the figure is 87 percent. Q: What will my Covered California health insurance cover? A: The Affordable Care Act requires that all newly purchased insurance plans, including those on Covered California, cover essential health benefits such as doctor visits, hospitalization, emergency care, maternity care, pediatric care, preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management, rehabilitative services, mental health and prescriptions. Insurance companies cannot deny access or charge higher premiums if you have a pre-existing health condition or you become ill. Like all ACA plans, Covered California health plans also include pediatric oral and vision care services. Q: Should I be concerned about rising premiums? A: Premiums are rising in states with health insurance exchanges for various reasons, including in California. The increases in

California have been generally lower than in other states due largely to greater participation by health insurance companies in Covered California, which makes the marketplace more competitive. It is important to note that as premiums rise so do subsidies for those who need help buying health insurance. Covered California officials strongly encourage consumers to shop around to find a plan that best suits them and their interest in a particular health care provider, the cost of premiums and the cost of out-of-pocket expenses related to care, such as deductibles. Q: What happens if I don’t enroll by the deadline? A: If you haven’t signed up by the deadline and do not qualify for special enrollment, you won’t be eligible to buy health insurance under Covered California until the next open enrollment period in late 2018. You may also have to pay penalties and fees for not having insurance and those can add up fast. The penalty for tax year 2016 is $695 per adult, $347.50 per child under 18, or up to 2.5 percent of a household’s adjusted gross income, whichever is larger. You may sign up after open enrollment only if you experience a qualifying life event, such as getting married, having a child, losing health coverage through an employer, or becoming a legal resident. Q: Where can I get help enrolling in Covered California? A: You may enroll for health coverage through Covered California online, by phone or in person with free assistance from a certified enroller. Covered California’s website provides links to certified counselors and insurance brokers trained in Covered California insurance plans as well as county offices where you can go for help. Visit the Covered California website: or call (800) 300-1506. For information about Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal Medical Center in-network providers in Covered California call 1-800-SCRIPPS (727-4777) or visit “To Your Health” is brought to you by the physicians and staff of Scripps Health.

FROM SENIOR, A1 San Diego City Council adopted growth management guidelines known as the Framework Plan, which allows for “rural cluster” development on Prop A lands. “Hacienda Del Mar is a rural, clustered development, non-urban in character and scale, designed and sited in the most environmentally-sensitive manner,” Watson said. “For these reasons, it is consistent with all Prop A General Plan, Framework Plan and municipal code requirements.” Barry Schultz, vice chair of the planning board, was attempting to grasp exactly what would define a project as urban or non-urban and what threshold of development would cause a vote. To committee member Jay Powell, who was involved in the origins of Prop A, it is important to protect what is left of agricultural land in the city. Powell said the main reason for Prop A was to provide a mechanism for residents if developers are not following the general plan. He is concerned about exemptions made on Prop A lands; he believes any development should be taken to a vote of the people. “De-facto suburbanization has happened without Prop A which is not the intent,” Powell said. “The battle that I think we lost was in the city council’s interpretation, allowing clustering to occur in the intensity that it did.” Watson said the developers understand that the 20 acres in the San Dieguito River Valley is the last open

space there is in the area. Hacienda Del Mar is planned to have less than 10 percent lot coverage, with the remainder of the 23.87-acre site used for dedicated open space. A total of four, one-story buildings will be clustered below a hillside at the eastern portion of the property and all building setbacks are at least 55 feet, more than double the required 25 feet. In the site’s agricultural residential zone, one unit is allowed per 10 acres. Under the planned residential development code with no vote, the maximum allowed would be four units. Watson said the developers are looking to stay within that allowed square footage of four large residential estate units. The remaining 11 acres on the western side of the property, closest to El Camino Real, will be open space with restored natural habitat. “As long as the majority of the site — in this case 90 percent — is not developed, than that whole corner would still be open,” Watson said. “And as the polo field is owned by the city, that will still be open space. So you would have this wide open space area with a small cluster up against the hill.” The previous project, Rancho Del Mar, was much more urban in scale, Watson said. At one point, the Rancho Del Mar plan

called for 225 care casitas spread across the entire lot and a 29,147-square-foot wellness center across the street. “The current developer has tried really hard to work with the community and come up with a project that is non-urban in scale and would not create a negative precedent,” Watson said. What could make Hacienda Del Mar considered urban in character, Schultz pointed out, is the project’s intensity of services. Schultz said that more than just looking rustic, the planning board must also consider the use, the employee parking requirements and what it will take to serve the senior community. Senior housing has the lowest amount of trips generated from any other use and typically has less demand at peak traffic hours, but the concern is that a facility would still generate more traffic than if it was just estate homes on the property. A notice of preparation of Hacienda Del Mar’s environmental impact report is set to go out to residents soon and a scoping meeting will be held in December. At the scoping meeting, all members of the public are invited to come and provide input on what the EIR (environmental impact report) should study.

Torrey Pines Golf Course, architect Tom Weiskopf unveil renovated North Course Following a comprehensive nine-month, $12.6 million renovation, the North Course at Torrey Pines Golf Course has reopened to an eagerly awaiting golfing public. Originally designed by William F. Bell and opened in 1957, the renovated North Course now stands to rival the popularity of the world famous South Course, host of the U.S. Open in 2008 and in 2021. The North and South courses, owned and maintained by the City, are both public courses, and the North averages approximately 82,000 rounds of play per year. “We are excited to re-open the North Course to the global golf community,” said Herman Parker, director of Park and Recreation for the City of San Diego. “Torrey Pines is a world-renowned golf facility, and we are pleased to be able to offer two outstanding courses, each with their own unique characteristics. Now no San Diego golf excursion is complete without playing both the North and South at Torrey.” Course architect and golfing great Tom Weiskopf visited Torrey Pines recently to officially unveil the renovated North Course, a project

that holds a special place in his golf career and design portfolio. His first career win came at Torrey Pines at the 1968 Andy Williams-San Diego Open, predecessor to the current Farmers Insurance Open played every January at Torrey Pines. “It’s really special,” Wesikopf said. “And to work on a piece of property that amazing doesn’t happen very often. The sheer beauty of the place always captivates me. Now people can look forward to playing 36 incredible holes at Torrey Pines by playing the North and the South.” While the North Course maintains a similar feel to its original design, there were some significant changes. The number of bunkers has been reduced from 59 to 41, and the average green size increased from 4,500 square feet to 6,400. All 18 greens were completely reconstructed to United States Golf Association standards, with the existing poa annua grass replaced with 100 percent bent grass – a Tyee 007 blend. The front and back nines were also reversed, allowing golfers spectacular ocean and canyon views as they finish their rounds. Carts paths have been replaced, and irrigation has been improved.

8th Hole Torrey North Greens were fitted with an advanced SubAir system that pulls moisture out of the surface and can cool greens during hot weather. The work was completed on time and on budget. “Switching the nines is very significant because the back nine is so iconic with its incredible views,” Weiskopf said. “The larger greens allow for more pin placements and more variety, and we’ve taken out bunkers but kept others that are strategically placed.” Weiskopf’s renovations have successfully struck a balance between providing ample challenge for professional and scratch golfers and keeping the course playable for amateurs and casual golfers of all

abilities. The North Course now features five sets of tees, allowing it to play as long as 7,258 yards or as short as 5,197. In total, the North has been lengthened nearly 200 yards from the tips. “I tried to bring the North Course into the 21st century,” Weiskopf said. “It was built in the 1950s, and nothing of significance had ever been done to it. Everything we did in the redesign was to bring it up to current standards. It’s now a top-of-the-line golf course.” Weiskopf Design Group has completed 60 golf course design projects since 1985. Among those are five that have been included in Golf Magazine’s list of the top 100 courses in the world – Troon Golf and


Country Club (Scottsdale, Ariz.); Forest Highlands Golf Club, The Canyon Course (Flagstaff, Ariz.); Troon North Golf Club, The Monument (Scottsdale, Ariz.); Loch Lomond Golf Club (Scotland) and Double Eagle Club (Galena, Ohio). Weiskopf was named Golf Architect of the Year by Golf World magazine in 1996. A winner of 16 tournaments during his nearly 30-year career on the PGA Tour, Weiskopf owns one major championship trophy (The Open Championship, 1973) and finished third or better in six other majors.

FROM MYRON, A1 one in 2012 – and a number of other accolades. “I like to do my best every time I ride, but I also enjoy my horses and all of the horses I have had – they make me feel happy,” Katie said. “I love working with horses; it is not a ‘hobby,’ in my opinion, but my way of life, and it is a good day whenever I am riding.” Her love for equines began at age 2, and she recalled pleading with her mom, Kathlene Myron, to buy her a horse. “I was very surprised when she bought me a large stuffed animal horse! I think I cried,” Katie said. The request caught Kathlene – a dog lover – by surprise. “I didn’t know where it was coming from,” she said. “But I’ve always loved animals; I’m an animal advocate.” Kathlene said Katie’s first horseback riding adventure was a five-hour trail ride in Hawaii at age 3. On her 4th birthday, Katie received her first riding lesson, at a hunter/jumper stable in San Marcos. “My mom knew right away that this was not going to be a phase or a hobby – rather it was who I was, and she said I am gifted with horses,” Katie said. Months later, the youngster was competing in hunter/jumper classes at local horse shows, showing ponies “and anything they offered me to ride.” After about a year, the San Marcos barn went bankrupt and the trainer left, so Katie joined the Rancho Santa Fe Riding Club. While she was there, she learned a variety of disciplines – including hunt seat equitation, saddle seat and horsemanship – and built upon her other skills.

After a few years, Katie became interested in gymkhana lessons. “My mom found a barn in Escondido, and suddenly I was helmut-free, racing around barrels and poles and roping anything that moved,” she said. “I was excited to go every day after school to ride a different horse, and soon I was competing in small shows.” Katie and her family leased a number of horses over the years, but when she was 8, her wish to own one was finally granted – her dad, Bob Myron, bought her a Quarter horse named Ted. “It was the happiest day of my life,” Katie said. “I rode him every day, and my mom helped take care of him while I was at school. I learned so much in that first year with my horse. He basically let me know that he was not happy racing around barrels, so I worked him with cows roping, and he enjoyed that very much!” Ironically, it was Ted who led Katie to another horse, and to the saddle seat discipline. “One day while I was in the arena with him, he decided he was not going to budge not a bit,” she said. “Meanwhile, another girl entered the arena on her Saddlebred horse (Blossom) and noticed my Quarter horse behaving like a mule, and asked if I would be interested in switching horses. I said, ‘Sure,’ with some reluctance! Within minutes, the ASB (American Saddlebred) owner had instructed me to ‘rack’ her horse, and at that moment I knew I was addicted! My mom started taking riding lessons on my Quarter horse and I started leasing the ASB – it was great timing for me because the owner had started college and would not have time for her.” Katie began taking lessons and competing

in saddle seat at shows. After a year, she moved up to regional and national competitions and said goodbye to Blossom. A new trainer evaluated her equitation abilities and had her ride several horses over the next six months. Soon, Katie discovered Morgans – and it was a mare named Festival Sundance that vaulted her to the top level. In 2012, Katie and Sundance won the World Championship in the 11 & under Saddle Seat Classic Equitation Division at the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show. However, the pair eventually parted ways, as Katie’s trainer suggested a more challenging mount – one that she could grow into. “I missed the magic Sundance and I had, but I realized that it was time for me to move forward,” Katie said. The new mount was Katie’s biggest challenge yet – a Morgan named Slam Dunk, also known as “Duncan.” “Everyone thought I was ready for an upgrade but me!” Katie said. “This particular horse was strong and big, while I was barely 60 pounds! He was not friendly in his stall and would sometimes humiliate me at horse shows. I was intimidated by his presence, and I know he knew it, too!” However, after a successful show in Oklahoma in 2013, Katie became more confident in her abilities. She began riding hunt seat with another “difficult” horse, SpringMill Tea Party, nicknamed “Pippa.” “One of my first lessons brought back memories of my early rodeo days; she (Pippa) bucked and spun, launching me like a torpedo!” Katie said. But it was worth it, because in 2014, the duo won the National Championship title in the Walk-Trot Hunter Seat Equitation Division at the Grand National & World Championship. Katie also continued winning on Duncan, clinching National and Reserve World Champion titles that year. After the championships, Katie decided to

focus more on saddle seat riding and, for her 13th birthday, she was surprised with another saddle seat horse, Tamarisk On Target. The horse had been out of formal training for a while and had never done patterns, but with hard work, Katie and Tamarisk won the World Championship title in the Saddle Seat Classic Equitation Division for ages 13 and under in Oklahoma, among other honors in 2015. This year brought even more success, as the pair were once again crowned champions in Oklahoma. Although she is often competing, Katie finds time to balance her passion with schoolwork and piano lessons. Three days a week, the ninth-grader is in Escondido by 5 a.m. to ride, and then heads to school at Horizon Prep in Rancho Santa Fe. She also has independent PE twice a week, and heads to the barn immediately after school on those days. While in Oklahoma for the Grand National & World Championship – for an average stay of 10 days – a learning center ensures that Katie stays current on her assignments and communicates with her teachers on a daily basis. She also keeps an eye on her health. The teen battles celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder, and has the occasional migraine. In order to keep them under control, Katie maintains a healthy diet, and uses deep breathing and relaxation techniques she learned from a biofeedback specialist. Meanwhile, Katie is looking forward to participating with Tamarisk in the Jingle Bell Horse Show in Del Mar in December. They are fine-tuning their skills, and the teen is ensuring the well-being of her horse. Katie expects that 2017 will bring more challenges. “I am excited and look forward to changes in the coming year,” she said. “I am finished in the 13 and under division, and have only just begun!” For long-term goals, Katie aspires to be an equine dermatologist – and have lots of horses.

A culinary voyage exploring seafood sustainability


La Jolla Cultural Partners

he jaw dropping Marine Room of La Jolla recently hosted its second annual Ocean-to-Table luncheon, a pescavore’s paradise as part of the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival. The Captain of the gustatory expedition, Chef Bernard Guillas with first mate Chef Ron Oliver conceived the idea to launch a fresh format of the event to celebrate our mighty oceans with a stimulating educational component, while its previous mission was focused solely on discovering new wines and relishing food flavors. He invited a crew of sustainably-minded chefs, both local and global, to come aboard and share their passion and knowledge of oceanic stewardship. Iconic chefs and discerning foodies rubbed elbows during the sold-out reception. Guests nibbled on whimsical seafood appetizers with locally-sourced ingredients, including a crunchy brandade croquette topped with miniature pickled vegetables (Amy DiBiase, Grand Restaurant Group), succulent San Diego sea urchin accompanied by marine gems, such as red ogo seaweed, jako anchovies, and masago roe (Andrew Spurgin, Bespoke Event Styling and Menu Design), and local spiny lobster presented on a bincho black charcoal crisp with a hint of ginger blossom (Evan Cruz, Arterra). Diners were then treated to a five-course,

sit-down feast of local sea treasures and some decadent desserts, along with an enlightening commentary by the chefs as they introduced their dishes. Visiting chef from Las Vegas, Rick Moonen of RM Seafood, an intrepid trailblazer of sustainable seafood restaurants for over 13 years, cast out practical advice for consumers when buying seafood to simply ask their fishmonger three questions: 1) What is it? 2) Where is it from? 3) How was it procured (either caught or farmed)? According to Moonen the answers will give the consumer, and the fish seller, a true understanding of food, its nutritional and health profile, and an awareness of its precarious existence. “It’s hard to identify ‘sustainability,’ ” Moonen said. “But basically, it’s not to take an active role in the extinction of the species, like the over exploited and endangered Bluefin Tuna, Chilean Sea Bass, North Atlantic Cod, and Atlantic Halibut. In part, it’s our love of big fish that has caused over 80 percent of certain species to be overfished.” Moonen recommends eating lower on the food chain, embracing safer (in terms of less methyl mercury and PCB concentrations) and smaller fish, especially anchovies, sardines and mackerel, also packed with heart-healthy omega-3’s. Moonen also

aside. Remove clam meat from shell. Coarsely chop. Refrigerate clams until needed. Add butter and bacon to large saucepan over medium heat. Cook until bacon fat is rendered. Add flour. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add celery, leeks and garlic. Cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Add sherry, Jerusalem artichokes and 1 cup reserved clam broth. Bring to simmer. Add corn, stock and cream. Return to low simmer. Cover. Cook 15 minutes. Fold in clams. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into warm bowls. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley. Serves 4. —Chef Bernard Guillas

■ Method: Add wine, bay leaf and black peppercorns to large pot over high heat. Cover. Bring to boil. Add clams. Cover. Cook 3 minutes. Then, rotate clams from bottom to top using slotted spoon. Cook additional 3 minutes. Using tongs, transfer clams to cookie sheet. Discard unopened clams. Strain broth through fine sieve. Set suggests downloading the Seafood Watch Program App sponsored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium to keep current on the sustainability of various fish and seafood species. Chef Dean James Max, founder of DJM Restaurants with sustainable eateries coast-to-coast and the Caribbean advises to keep fish local to the area. “Don’t freeze or ship, and maintain a low footprint.” At his Cayman restaurant he owns fishing boats and catches snapper, wahoo, lobster and conch, never buying fish from outside sources. “That’s

what makes it sustainable.” Back to the luncheon with such tantalizing dishes as melt-in-your mouth San Diego crab drizzled with brown butter hollandaise (Rob Ruiz, Land & Water Co.), a stew of Pacific clams and charred octopus with chestnut beans in a smoked paprika and pumpkin broth (Dean Max), a pot au feu of California White Sea Bass with horseradish cream in a savory smoked bacon broth (Rick Moonen), and local black cod with a sunchoke puree (Jason McLeod, Ironside Fish & Oyster).

The Girl Singers to bring holiday show to Solana Beach BY KRISTINA HOUCK festive holiday musical is headed for Solana Beach that will surely be fun for all families. After all, it’s a family that will be performing popular holiday songs on stage. Starring a mother and her two daughters, “The Girl Singers of the Hit Parade Holiday Show” is set to take the stage Dec. 6-24 at North Coast Repertory Theatre. “We’re just so happy to be able to come out there and do this, and celebrate the holidays with the folks of Solana Beach [and surrounding communities],” said producer and performer Colleen Raye. An accomplished singer, actress and entertainer, Raye heads The Girl Singers, a singing group she started a decade ago. The original lineup included her sister, Debbie O'keefe, and two daughters, Jennifer and Sophie Grimm. “The music and joy that comes out of us is really great,” said Raye, a mother of four. Raye and her six brothers and sisters were raised on a farm in Wisconsin, where she still resides today. Coming from a musically-gifted family, Raye started her music career by singing in her older brother’s band when she was 15 years old. She went on to study music in college and later met her late ex-husband Steve Grimm, another performer. For 18 years, the pair performed across the country with their night club show band called "The Steve Grimm and Colleen Raye Show.” Since 2006, Raye has created and produced a series of “Girl Singers” shows, including “The Girl Singers of the Hit Parade.” The Girl Singers first took the stage at North Coast Rep last summer


with the show, which features classics from Rosemary Clooney, Patti Page, Doris Day and more. “The audience responded very well,” Raye said. ‘Now, we’re back for three weeks.” The Girl Singers, now a three-member lineup, consists of Raye, Jennifer Grimm and Sophie Grimm. Jennifer has been in the music business for more than 35 years, working as a solo artist and composer. She previously co-starred in North Coast Rep’s “Words by Ira Gershwin,” a musical directed by Artistic Director David Ellenstein. Sophie is an actress and singer based in Chicago. The Girl Singers will be joined by Raye’s husband, pianist Dominic Tarullo; Raye’s son, drummer and vocalist Redd Grimm; and Jennifer’s fiancé, guitarist Joe Cruz. “The Girl Singers of the Hit Parade Holiday Show” brings to life popular holiday songs of the ’50s, including “Santa Baby” made famous by Eartha Kitt and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” by Brenda Lee. The show also includes a number of Christmas classics, music of Hanukkah and a melody from Disney’s film “Frozen.” “The audience can expect to be totally entertained,” Raye said. “There will be power-packed vocals with a sense of humor and family blend.” “The Girl Singers of the Hit Parade Holiday Show” runs at various times and dates from Dec. 6-24. Tickets are $42 for general admission and $37 for subscribers. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the box office at 858-481-1055 or visit

In conjunction with the Chelsea’s Light Foundation, GRACEDBYGRIT has created a new sustainable legging: the Chelsea Legging. GRACEDBYGRIT in Solana Beach is donating $50 per legging to Chelsea’s Light Foundation. GRACEDBYGRIT is holding a launch party Dec. 7 from 5-8:30 p.m. to promote the foundation. GRACEDBYGRIT is located at 153 N. Highway 101, Solana Beach, 92075. The GRACEDBYGRIT Chelsea Legging was inspired by Chelsea King, a San Diego teen whose life was brutally taken from her while out for a mountain trail run. The legging is offered in three color combinations: royal/black, magenta/navy and grey/black. The print is inspired by the sunflower, Chelsea’s favorite flower and the symbol of the Chelsea’s Light Foundation. The full-length compression pant features a mid-rise waistband with pockets in the front and back to hold a cell phone. The material is made from recycled water bottles. Chelsea’s Light Foundation has helped to create the strongest laws in the country to

protect California children against known violent predators. Now, Chelsea’s Light Foundation is expanding this critical work to other states. The foundation was started by the family of Chelsea King to help unite and lead people to protect the joy and innocence of childhood and inspire positive change. Empowering women to feel safe, confident and motivated to be active, GRACEDBYGRIT honors the legacy of Chelsea King. GRACEDBYGRIT has built its core values around the safety and security of active women. Chelsea’s Light Foundation is profoundly important to the founders of GRACEDBYGRIT. The idea for the apparel line was conceived on a run when founders Kate Nowlan, a running coach, was training Kimberly Caccavo, her client, for a triathlon in Chelsea’s honor.

A family tradition Dewhurst & Associates celebrates 87 years of home construction, remodels BY KAREN BILLING or the last 87 years, the Dewhurst & Associates family has built a legacy as custom-home craftsmen. The strong, family-run company gives homeowners the ability to take design concepts into construction reality, blending a long-standing tradition of fine home design with the most modern building technologies. The company’s roots go back to 1929 in La Jolla, when Ernest Dewhurst, current President Doug Dewhurst’s great grandfather, came over from England and founded the firm. In those early days, the firm worked with architects such as Lilian Rice and Tom Shepherd and many of those collaborations remain — the best known work still in use today is the Athenaeum, the music and arts library on Wall Street in La Jolla. The first home built by Dewhurst & Associates in 1929 on Remley Place in the hills of La Jolla is still standing and has received a historical designation. “It is pretty cool to see how many years have gone by and it still looks really close to the way it looked in 1929,” Doug said.


In the mid-1940s, Doug’s grandfather Walter joined and worked alongside his father until the late 1950s. Walter was involved in the installation of the Mt. Soledad Cross in 1954. Doug’s father Don became part of the team in the mid-1970s, and Doug and his twin brother Dave joined the company in 1986, able to work alongside both their father and grandfather. “I grew up looking up to my father and grandfather,” Doug said, noting that he and his brother were introduced to construction when they were in middle school. “We always took pride in it and how many projects the company developed around town and in the surrounding communities,” Doug said. “We felt like one day we could continue the tradition.” In 2006, Doug became president of Dewhurst & Associates and Dave was named CEO. Their sister, Donna, also works for the business. Dewhurst’s business is primarily residential although they have done some light commercial construction. They do new construction, remodels, structural repairs and renovations. Dewhurst can handle everything from kitchen

Dave, Don and Doug Dewhurst of Dewhurst & Associates. remodels and outdoor barbecue pits to major structural repairs to a deck on a La Jolla hillside home. “No job is too small,” Doug said. “If it’s residential, we’re excited to be involved in the project.” Remodels and renovations have become a big part of the business. “More and more homeowners want to stay in their own home and upgrade it,” Doug said, noting they have done many projects making room to bring in parents or extended family. Dewhurst is also proud of being involved in several local civic projects. They contributed to the renovation of Fire Station 13 in La Jolla in 2007 and, in 2013, they worked alongside the La Jolla Rotary to completely restore the interior and upgrade the exterior of the San Diego Police Department’s Northern Division in Pacific Beach. Their hard work and commitment to tradition and history is reflected in their employees, many


of whom have been with the company for over 30 years, and their many returning clients and multi-generational clients. Doug said it’s an honor to have a handful of clients where they are now working for the children of people they worked for in the past. They just finished a home in Del Mar for the grandchild of a client in La Jolla — Doug’s grandfather built the La Jolla client’s home and the Del Mar client was able to show Doug the original, typewritten correspondence with his grandfather years ago. “It’s all about commitment to the client, doing quality work and keeping clients happy,” Doug said. “The reason for our success is that dedication to the client.” Dewhurst & Associates is located at 7533 Girard Avenue, La Jolla.

New location, same great clothes at Double Take consignment boutique BY CHRIS SAUR While only at its current location on El Camino Real for about a year, Double Take — a women’s clothing consignment store — has a rich history in North County. In fact, when owner and operator Layne Lozano first opened Double Take on Highway 101 in downtown Encinitas in 1999, she was the third member of her family to run a local consignment boutique. Around 1990, Lozano’s mother Sue Phillips bought a consignment store in Vista. Lozano’s sister, Renn Plsek, opened Double Take Solana Beach five years later. Though Phillips sold her shop to a family friend, her two daughters are still going strong. Lozano’s Double Take in Encinitas offers gently worn, fashionable clothes at an affordable price for women of all ages and styles. “Variety is our big thing, we take pride in having a little bit of everything so anyone can walk into the store and find something they like,” Lozano explained. “That’s the

goal. “We get generations shopping here, grandma, daughter and granddaughter, so that’s fun.” Double Take’s collections include dresses, jackets and coats, handbags, shoes, athletic attire and accessories, among other things, as Lozano understands that women want new clothes in their closets as frequently as possible, but knows retail prices are scary. She sifts through the bags and bags of clothes brought in to find the best pieces to offer her customers. And now, after 15 years downtown, Lozano decided she could best serve those customers by moving to her new location at 204 N. El Camino Real, Suite E, Encinitas. Lozano likes her boutique’s current location because it is more of a shopping area, including near some other consignments stores, which she welcomes. “The downtown is changing, retail is disappearing and the parking, which was bad to begin with, is getting worse,” Lozano


Layne Lozano owns and operates Double Take, a women’s clothing consignment boutique on El Camino Real in Encinitas. said. “(The new location) is also more convenient for people. “We are less visible, so it was slow at first, but I think in the long run it will be better. “I love Encinitas, it’s a great community because there are a lot of different types of people. And we get a lot of customers from

outside Encinitas too. We have people that come into town once a year and they have to come in every time they visit.” Though running consignment shops runs in the family, Lozano took an interesting journey to get there. After growing up in SEE BOUTIQUE, B23

Breeders' Cup Festival seeks sponsors, artists for Del Mar project The Breeders’ Cup, the World Championships of horse racing, is headed to Del Mar next November. Along with its world-class racing comes a week-long festival produced by the Breeders’ Cup Host Committee that will excite and entertain the San Diego community with all things horse. Thirteen races will be held on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3 and 4, 2017 with $28 million in purses along with awards and prestige of the highest order. Approximately 100,000 fans are expected to take in thoroughbred racing’s version of the Super Bowl and the Olympics all rolled into one at the seaside course, along with millions more watching on the NBC networks. The Breeders’ Cup Host Committee, made up of local individuals and organizations, including the San Diego Sports Alliance, is planning more than two dozen special community events leading up to the big days of racing, but ahead of them comes a unique opportunity to be involved with a long-lasting remembrance of the world’s best horses leaving their indelible mark on Del Mar history. The Art of the Horse will feature full-sized fiberglass horse sculptures painted and decorated by local artists, then distributed and placed in highly visible locations throughout the greater San Diego area. The life-sized, artistic sculptures are reproductions of the Torrie Horse used on the Breeders’ Cup trophies. The original Torrie Horse sculpture dates back to the Renaissance and is a symbol of beauty and grace. The horses will tell all that the Breeders’ Cup is coming in their singular

and colorful style. At least 20 horses will be shown with more anticipated. The painted and decorated horses will be part of a signature dinner and auction prior to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. Proceeds raised through the auction and Art of the Horse sponsorships both will be donated to a series of local charitable organizations and used to help fund the various community events leading up to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. The Breeders’ Cup Host Committee is putting out a “Call to Artists” to enter their names in the running for the right to paint/decorate a horse. Artists will receive an honorarium for their work and gain extensive exposure in print, on the web and at all of the fundraising events. Additionally, a horse map will be developed showing the location of the horses to the public that allows for more artist recognition. Interested artists should contact Bing Bush, Jr., the executive director of the Breeders’ Cup Host Committee, at The committee also seeks sponsors, merchants and local community groups that would be interested in being part of the Torrie Horse art project. Artist submissions and the sale of sponsorships likely will close on or before Dec.31, 2016. For more information, visit

Gallerist’s quirky collectibles on view at Athenaeum, plus swatch art and more BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT ark Quint, who grew up in La Jolla, has been an art dealer/gallerist since 1981. Having recently closed down his Girard Avenue gallery and relocated to Rose Canyon, he’s now back in town at the Athenaeum, with a delightful exhibit of oddities from his own personal collection. He describes the exhibit, titled “Give Me a Minute, I’m Thinking,” as a mix of “classic religious sculptures, tourist tchotchkes, stacks of afghan blankets, tattered taxidermy, battered butterflies and bugs, paper ephemera, banal indoor house plants and 1970s swag lamps.” All are treasures he’s scored from international flea markets, thrift shops and auction houses, which he’s been happily haunting for decades. At the opening Nov. 11, he talked about the joys of collecting: “I start by seeing an object and liking it ... like an afghan blanket I came across when my grandmother died. I thought about how much work had gone into making it, and how often such things end up being given away to Goodwill.”


He now owns about 400 afghans — there’s a stack of 200 in the Athenaeum exhibit — that share space with hundreds of other beloved objects in a 2000-square-foot unit beside his new Quint Projects suites at 5171 Santa Fe St. “I believe there is a world of interest in all objects if you look close enough,” he said. “Paying attention is an exercise for your eyes; it fine tunes your esthetic muscles and visual intelligence. It's what looking at art is all about.” A curtain of 1,000 Swatches separates Quint’s collectibles from another idiosyncratic collection: “Artists to Swatch,” Roy Porello’s 30-year assemblage of original watch-art. The exhibit is surprisingly engaging, and a perfect companion to Quint’s well-mounted display. ■ IF YOU GO: “Give Me a Minute, I’m Thinking,” curated by Mark Quint is on view through Dec. 31. Also on view: Roy Porello’s “Artists to Swatch” (North Reading Room) and Alida Cervantes’ “Studies Using Unmixed Black” (Rotunda) at Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall St., La Jolla. (858) 454-5872.

Scandal erupts at the North Pole in comedy coming to North Coast Rep Are you looking for something different for Christmas this year? Tired of Christmas Carol and Gift of the Magi? True confessions from Santa’s eight reindeer come to North Coast Repertory Theatre in the reading of The Eight: Reindeer Monologues by Jeff Goode on Dec. 16-17 at 10 p.m. Directed by Christopher Williams, this “Arrestingly funny,” staged reading will be a daring new way to celebrate the holiday season! In this dark comedy, eight reindeer will dish about the “real” Santa, causing quite the scandal to erupt at the North Pole. All those rumors you’ve heard about him and the elves, about Rudolph’s little secret, about Vixen’s story that was leaked to the press? All true. Yes, the reindeer finally speak up and, believe us, they do not hold back! Warning! This show has foul-mouthed reindeer and very inappropriate adult humor! Definitely no kids or anyone who does not wish to see the dark side of Santa and the North Pole! Recommended for mature audiences only – Rated R for adult language. The New York Times calls it “Wickedly Topical!” The cast includes: Andy Barnicle (Dasher), Phil Johnson (Cupid), Omri Schein (Hollywood), Cashae Monya (Blitzen), Richard Baird (Comet), Sarah Errington (Dancer), Jacob Bruce(Donner) and Amanda Schaar

NC Rep to present ‘The Wedding Cake’ by The Honorable H. Lee Sarokin North Coast Repertory Theatre’s New Works Reading Series presents the reading of The Honorable H. Lee Sarokin’s new play The Wedding Cake, Dec. 13 at 7:30 p.m. The Wedding Cake “is about the tension between religious liberty and discrimination and the sacrifices made by those who stand for or against either,” says Sarokin. In this play, two couples, quarrel over an incident, which, at first, seems to be trivial. Tension soon develops into a bitter dispute with each couple; both suffering consequences they never envisioned, over something they thought so small. Longtime Artistic Director at North Coast Rep, David Ellenstein, speaks highly of Sarokin’s works: “His plays are usually short, gripping and about hot-button issues without any sugar-coating,” Ellenstein said. “They’re open to audience interpretation instead of preaching a point, and they’re very immediate and accessible.” This play is sure to engender

strong feelings and raise great discussion at the talkback after the reading. Judge H. Lee Sarokin is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Harvard Law School. After a 25-year career as a trial lawyer, he was appointed to the U.S. District Court by President Jimmy Carter and elevated to the U.S. Court of Appeals by President Bill Clinton. Throughout his judicial career he has championed civil rights. He is a regular contributor to the Huffington Post, tutors at Casa de Amistad, served five years as Distinguished Jurist in Residence at USD Law School and plays drums with jazz groups. He now resides with his wife Margie in La Jolla. This is a free reading, on stage for one-night only. After the reading there will be a Talkback with the Sarokin, director Jay Mower and cast.

Let’s Talk About Home Care. Let’s talk about how high quality, personalized in-home care can help you or a loved one. Home care can keep older adults in their homes. 9 out of 10 of seniors prefer to age in their own homes. Hiring a caregiver provides the extra support an older adult may need to stay where they most prefer: at home. Home care helps seniors stay independent longer. A caregiver provides support with activities of daily living, while encouraging mental and physical stimulation and overall wellness. They also promote safety in the home by preventing falls or other accidents.

Local families survive annual ROC Arroyo campout BY SMOKEY THE BEAR The Rancho Santa Fe Outdoors Club (ROC) held its annual family campout at the Arroyo this past Veterans Day weekend. Although good weather and the holiday encouraged families to get an earlier start, campers enjoyed the extra juicy Sloppy Joes prepared by Blob Willingham in the dark due to the tardiness of the Bartons with the woebegone kitchen trailer. The extent of the early disorder was enhanced by the late arrival of our fearful leader, Jeff Slosar, who had gotten waylaid in Boston by political protests. A wine and cheese assortment rivaling the Cap and Gown spread tided over the parents, but ravenous children attacked the Wagners’ large bags of cookies that somehow got distributed over the entire campsite. By morning, everyone had forgotten about these treats and the 10 pounds of left-over Sloppy Joe meat previously dumped in the bushes until the Browns, Reasons and Garners came with dogs in tow, who promptly went into mine-sweeping mode and located every last indigestion-causing morsel. Craig Garner, who went home for the evening to “work” while Mom, John John and Will


Movie night zombies at the Arroyo. camped, is still seeking a client to bill for the hours spent cleaning up the cookie explosion his dogs created. ROC did not agree to his hourly rate. Official weekend activities included archery, BB guns, model rockets, driving lessons in an open-air Blazer, hot-chocolate stove building, frustration over not catching fish, and open-air

Japanese movie-watching on the side of the resurrected trailer. Unofficial activities included knife-throwing (Rhett Reasons), fort-building, tree climbing (Mele Barton and Rocco Sansone), mud food modeling, tackle football, s’mores pyromania, bamboo-staff making (Kelly Slosar and the Barton girls), dog-drool wiping (Koki Reasons and Meredith

Garner), sandal heat sensitivity testing, and experimentation with the five-second rule. Most pastimes were injury-free, but Henley Willingham learned the hard way that pellet guns kick and has the forehead welt to prove it, whereas his sister discovered that climbing a sheer rock face is easier on the way up. Francesca Sansone experienced

the dangers of running through a wooded area without glasses. The Perrys found out that dogs aren’t the only ones with stomachs sensitive to camping food. Jack Kaffka flew solo over the weekend because his dad wanted a break from appearing in the Review. Cody Malter took a break from hockey to visit. And Ross and Harrison Jacobsen practiced not winning at everything for a change. Other comparatively nice-smelling and well-groomed families stopped by briefly with provisions during well-timed cameos, including Dr. Kottler and “Count” Malter with his super silent Shih tzu and a valiant defense of the electoral college system. The Bentincks arrived to assist with rockets and proved conclusively that it is actually possible for children to tire of eating donuts. The Goldens came to enjoy the fire and feast on what was left of the Jacobsens’ incredible Chicago sausages and hot beef sandwiches. ROC heads into the winter hoping to maintain its one-month, no-blood-shed record with the Soap Box Derby that is coming up soon in early December.

SPONSORED COLUMNS MICHAEL PINES Accident & Injury Legal Advice 858.551.2090

The Loss of Work in the Aftermath Traumatic Brain Injury Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) affect every facet of life, from memory to physical ability to performing every day functions like speaking and eating. Unfortunately, it goes without saying that TBIs are one of the most catastrophic forms of injury. And when it comes to recovery, restoring full brain function is often rare. In this sense, returning to work after a traumatic brain injury is generally difficult, if not impossible. In a recent report, we learn of one woman’s struggle with traumatic brain injury after she fell backward in a snow storm, landing head first onto icy pavement.

“My feet went out from under me and my head just hit the pavement,” said Carey Gelfand, a Glencoe, Ill. resident who said she was on a business trip in New York when the accident occurred. Although she brushed off the accident at first, a cognitive fog soon developed. Once she returned home, she began forgetting crucial details and lost the ability to focus at work. Exhaustion overtook her body and she was often plagued with debilitating headaches. “My boss [wanted] to take jobs away from me. I was very diminished in my position. I was just so frustrated and I had such poor sense of self,” said Gelfand. Although most TBIs occur as a result of car accidents, some may occur in the most unfortunate and yet ordinary ways such as a trip or fall. Seeking medical attention as soon as a TBI is suspected is essential when it comes to recovery and possible prevention of further injury. “It is important after a brain injury see a neurologist who can administer the proper tests,” the article noted. “Not doing so means it could be weeks or years before the



GDC Construction 858.551.5222

San Diego Vein Institute 760.944.9263

injury is diagnosed.” Gelfland said her job suffered considerably in wake of her TBI. Though she did not lose her job, she struggled to keep up with demands. Fortunately, she is able to talk about her experience, striving to create awareness for this surprisingly prevalent injury (TBIs affect at least 1.5 million Americans each year). Although Gelfland has maintained her work, most people are not as fortunate. One small study found that low income and unemployment were quite common in the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury, leading many into difficult financial positions. There is one bright aspect: psychologists, doctors and other healthcare practitioners are working together to increase head injury awareness. “I think we are in... one of those ‘ah ha!’ [moments]. We know better now,” said Chicago-based psychologist Morgan Wolin. “But, if we know better, will we do better? Will human resources say, ‘Okay concussions are a real thing, let’s take it more seriously?’”

As for employee accommodation, most human resource (HR) departments are willing to accommodate individuals with TBIs. For the most seamless transition, employees affected by traumatic brain injury are urged to work with their employers and HR departments to find a reasonable solution. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, individuals with a TBI may need special accommodations such as: SCHEDULE CONSIDERATIONS. You should work with your employer to accommodate shorter work days and/or an increase in breaks. Resting is the key when it comes to recovery. SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS. Operating vehicles, heavy equipment or lifting heavy objects are generally prohibited once TBIs are diagnosed. It’s important to keep activities light while promoting rest. Individuals in need of legal help after TBI diagnosis are urged to call 1-800-655-6585 for a free consultation.

6th-grader loves her role in ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ BY DIANA SAENGER or many people, the 1947 film “Miracle on 34th Street,” has maintained its popularity throughout the decades. Luckily for those who remember it (and those who have never seen it), the San Diego Musical Theatre’s version is onstage through Dec. 24 at the Horton Grand Theatre. Julia Van Skike, a Julia Van sixth-grader at Skike Mount Everest Academy, and daughter of Steve and Suzy Van Skike of La Jolla, has the lead role as Susan Walker, and the holiday classic will be adapted from the 1947 Lux Radio Hour Broadcast and staged with live, Foley effects and a score of holiday carols. The heartwarming plot whirls around a department store Santa who claims he’s the real Kris Kringle, and his case is taken all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. But wait! Can a miracle unfold when the belief of a little girl makes all the difference in what happens? “I’m very excited to be part of the story told in the format of a live radio broadcast on the stage,” Van Skike said. “I’ve seen the original movie and I’ve taken vocal, acting and dance lessons, as well as master classes and workshops. I love to sing and was inspired when I heard my friend Claire Scheper sing at her recital some years ago. She encouraged me to audition for a musical.” Van Skike has been in 12 local productions through the years,



Julia Van Skike as Susan Walker, in San Diego Musical Theatre’s ‘Miracle on 34th Street,’ adapted by Lance Arthur Smith, directed by Colleen Kollar Smith, Dec. 1-24 at 444 Fourth Ave. among them as Cindy Lou Who in “Seussical” (Coronado Playhouse), as Gretl in “Sound of Music” (Christian Youth Theatre), as Electra in “Cats” (California Youth Conservatory), as well as performing at December Nights, the Zoo Centennial Celebration, and other shows around town. She said she has many favorite scenes in her current show. “My very favorite is the ‘monkey scene’ where Susan, along with the help from Kris Kringle, has unique experiences when using her imagination,” she said. “One of the important things to remember about this story is that faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to."

Like most professional entertainers, Van Skike has come to be aware of the sacrifices to her everyday life to maintain a performance career. “I have to balance schoolwork with my acting commitments, and sometimes sacrifice sleep and time to read,” she said. “But my parents support me fully and drive me constantly where I need to go. I absolutely love performing and plan to continue my theater training and go to college and major in theater.” ■ IF YOU GO: San Diego Musical Theatre’s “Miracle on 34th Street,” runs through Dec. 24 at the Horton Grand Theatre, 444 Fourth Ave., downtown. Tickets from $25. (858) 560-5740.

Mainly Mozart's 2017 Spotlight Series returns to Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla and Carlsbad Mainly Mozart recently announced the 2017 Spotlight Chamber Music Series schedule, which will run from February through June. The popular intermission-free series, presenting some of the world’s leading musicians performing beloved classics, will produce four concerts at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club and The Auditorium at TSRI in La Jolla, with two concerts in Carlsbad, one at St. Elizabeth Seton Church and one at Schulman Auditorium. The Spotlight Series is sponsored by the Patricia and Christopher Weil Family Foundation. For the sixth year, New York-based pianist Anne-Marie McDermott will serve as Spotlight Curator. She has imbued the series with her signature carefully-cultivated combination of

traditional favorites flavored with surprises such as Jake Heggie’s “The Work at Hand” and Victor Ullman’s String Quartet No. 3, composed in 1943 in the concentration camp Therensienstadt. “The Spotlight Series has been given even greater importance this year,” said Nancy Laturno Bojanic, Mainly Mozart’s executive director. “Spotlight concerts will bookend the 2017 Mainly Mozart Festival, serving as both the opening and closing concerts.” Year Two of the Mainly Mozart Festival’s six-year exploration of Mozart’s life focuses on “Finding His Voice: Beauty Through Adversity.” Mainly Mozart is proud to open the 29th Annual Festival with a contemporary work that beautifully

exemplifies this theme. “The Work at Hand,”commissioned by and premiered at Carnegie Hall, is by the late poet Laura Coleridge, daughter of the gifted San Diego poet and writer Charlene Baldridge. Written after her diagnosis of colon cancer, it is about the difficult and deeply human experience of knowing it is time to say goodbye. The Pittsburgh Symphony, conducted by Michael Francis, premiered the orchestral version. Music is by Jake Heggie, best known for his operas Dead Man Walking and Moby Dick, and whose recent work Great Scott was seen at San Diego Opera last season.

She was stationed at Fort Campbell in Tennessee for four years and spent another year in Georgia. “It was great, I had a great time but I just didn’t see it as a career for me,” Lozano said. “I missed home, I love California.” She was sending out her resume and looking for jobs in project management, but working at her sister’s store opened her eyes to the idea of being her own boss. So she started her own boutique, working very hard to make it work and establish a connection with the community. “It was hard at first, you work a lot. The first two years I think I lived in the store,” Lozano explained. “It helped get (that connection with) the customer, I got to know everyone.” Those connections helped when the store
