County to look at forming joint powers authority with Ag. District BY JOE TASH The County Board of Supervisors will consider next week whether to form a joint powers authority with the 22nd District Agricultural Association, including a new 14-member board that would oversee day-today operations at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The issue will be considered at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Tues-

Regional crime up in 2012, according to report

day, April 23. The plan put forward by Supervisors Ron Roberts and Greg Cox calls for each supervisor to appoint one member to the new panel, and the nine members of the 22nd DAA board to fill the rest of the seats. The 22nd DAA currently runs the state-owned fairgrounds, and its board members are appointed by the governor.

“I don’t see this as a revolutionary change but maybe an evolutionary change. At the end of the day we will have a greater voice within the local community,” regarding operations of the fairgrounds, Roberts said. Roberts said he was concerned going into discussion with fairgrounds and state officials that the county not expose itself to

financial or legal risks. Since the issue last came before the supervisors in October, county staff have closely analyzed legal and financial issues. “Our people have done a very, very thorough job of going through this,” Roberts said. “I feel comfortable with that.” The agreement under consideration calls for each county supervisor to ap-

But numbers are still among the lowest in 30 years BY CITY NEWS SERVICE The San Diego Association of Governments recently released its 2012 crime statistics report, and officials said they association will continue to monitor a recent uptick in the region’s crime rate and factors that could be behind the increase. The data from the umbrella group for the area’s governments show a 7 percent countywide climb in violent crime from the previous year, and a 6 percent hike in property crimes. However, the numbers are still close to 30-year lows, according to SANDAG. The organization released many of the statistics two weeks ago. The 107 murders in 2012 was up 30 percent over 2011, but the 12th lowest in the past three decades. The number of aggravated assaults rose by 9 percent to 7,840 from the preSee CRIME, page 24

point one member of the new 14-member panel, which could either be a supervisor or a representative. Roberts said one change is that fairgrounds employees would be subject to county rules instead of state rules. As an example, he said, if the state imposed furloughs on its workers due to financial problems, the fairgrounds employees would no longer have to

take unpaid days off. However, he said, it is not anticipated that fairgrounds workers would become county employees. The Del Mar race track would continue to be run by the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Roberts said. Adam Day, president of the 22nd DAA board, said the proposed agreement See COUNTY, page 24

Fairgrounds officials to consider financial aspects of upgrades BY JOE TASH Del Mar Fairgrounds officials agreed to begin looking at the financial aspects of replacing the property’s aging exhibit halls, and also to consider additional uses for the fairgrounds’ underused satellite wagering facility, at their meeting on Wednesday, April 10. The state-owned fairgrounds, which hosts the annual San Diego County Fair and a major horse racing meet each summer, is operated by the 22nd District Agricultural Association, whose board of directors is appointed by the governor. The board voted unanimously to form a sub-committee to select a financial

consultant to study how much the district could afford to pay to replace its existing exhibit halls, and how it could pay for the construction. Replacement of the exhibit halls is a major element of the 22nd DAA’s recently updated master plan. “I think it’s important for us to get this started,” said board president Adam Day, conceding that the entire process of replacing the exhibit halls will take a number of years. Late last year, the district settled a lawsuit that challenged its master plan on environmental grounds filed by the cities of Del Mar See FAIRGROUNDS, page 24

RSF Fire Department issues reminder on how to reduce wildfire risk Wildfires are a constant threat for those living in Southern California, especially in wildland-urban interface areas such as those inside and surrounding Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District’s (RSFFPD) communities. The RSFFPD employs a hazard abatement inspector who surveys properties for fire hazards

and mails notices to property owners in violation of the Fire District Ordinance 2004-02 and 2011-01, which can be found at www.rsf-fire.org. The RSF Fire District is currently in the process of sending letters out to all residents within the RSFFPD service area reminding them of the local hazard

abatement requirements. Here are some ways you can safeguard not only your home, but your entire community. These requirements can also be found in their entirety on the RSF Fire District web site: www.rsf-fire. org. New hazards are increasing the threat There are a number of

plant and tree species that have been infected by insect infestation, disease, and lack of maintenance. Some of this vegetation has gone from being decorative to becoming a potential fire hazard. Over the last few years, the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District has seen an increase in the amount of tree mortality es-

pecially with eucalyptus and California pepper trees, oleanders, myoporum and certain acacia species. Property owners should survey their properties for dead or dying trees and remove them as necessary in order to reduce the fire hazard. Replacement trees should See WILDFIRE, page 24

Rancho Santa Fe Review

From her own experience, RSF resident understands the importance of the work she and her husband do through Miracle Babies BY KAREN BILLING When their daughter Natalie was born six-weeks premature in December 2002, Rancho Santa Fe resident Marjan Daneshmand considers herself “blessed” that she was as well equipped as one could be for such an unexpected and stressful birth. Her husband Sean is a perinatologist (a high-risk obstetrician), all of her family lived in San Diego for a solid support system and they had the financial means to deal with the unexpected costs of a premature baby and a stay in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). For many families though, a premature birth can come with overwhelming physical, mental and financial challenges. With Sean knowing firsthand what some families go through in his experiences with high-risk pregnancies and Marjan having gone through her own scare, the couple founded the nonprofit Miracle Babies in 2009. The organization aims to provide support and help

families meet their basic expenses and avert financial disaster due to a stay in the NICU. Miracle Babies is able to help — on average — 25 families a month, serving a population that is unfortunately growing. More than 500,000 babies are born preterm in the United States and the number of preterm births have increased by 30 percent since 1980. Due to her husband’s specialty, Marjan knew she could go to Sean whenever she felt anything that seemed weird. On one such occasion, where she was feeling weird contractions at 30 weeks, her husband suggested they check her out with an ultrasound. “I will never forget the look on his face,” Marjan said. “I could tell he was scared and that it was something serious.” Marjan was admitted to the hospital for 12 days due to a placental abruption, a very rare condition that can be fatal for the baby. She was closely monitored until she went into early labor with Natalie and had to undergo an emergency C-sec-

tion. “It was pretty traumatic,” Marjan said, of the neonatal team waiting to immediately put Natalie on a breathing tube. Fortunately, Natalie only had to spend one day in the NICU and Marjan spent five days in the hospital. “I was lucky that when the baby was born she was at my side and I was able to hold her,” Marjan said. She knows many mothers are not able to hold their child when they are born premature and even though she experienced the NICU just briefly, she saw how emotional it can be and how helpless a parent can feel about that “little life.” An extreme financial hardship can be loaded on top of the emotional stress of having a child in the NICU. Medical costs through the first year of life are approximately 11 times higher for a preterm versus a fullterm baby. A baby can spend up to three months in the NICU and if a working parent has to miss work to be

through an emergency Csection. Pacheco’s son, Noah, weighed less than 3 pounds. When she awoke, Pacheco didn’t even realize she had the baby and feared the worst. Her family was able to have a little breathing room financially and be there for their child. “Miracle Babies made it possible for me to kiss my soon goodbye every night and it is because of them that I could lay my head down at night and sleep,” said Pacheco. “They are an incredible family,” said Daneshmand. “When she talks about what Sean and Marjan Daneshmand founded Miracle Babies they suffered, what they in 2009. Seen here with their daughter Natalie, who was went through, I have tears born six-weeks premature.

TPHS freshman/RSF resident Taylor Fritz sweeps against Rancho Bernardo Previously undefeated Rancho Bernardo High School recently suffered their first loss of the season at home against the 7-0 Torrey Pines High School tennis team. The match score was 12-6. Taylor Fritz, the 6’ 3” freshman sensation is gaining confidence from a USTA (United States Tennis Association) tournament win at the recent Long Beach designated tournament. Taylor swept all three singles sets with the first being over Columbia University-bound senior William Chu 6-4. He won the second match, beating nationally ranked Steven Chen 6-2. Torrey Pines lost five starting players last year to graduation and one to a tennis academy. This year is a totally different team and they reloaded with three talented fresh-

Ganesh Manoharan is also a very solid starting freshman who will play any position in the lineup, singles or doubles.

Torrey Pines’ Head Coach Chris Numbers, in his first year on Torrey’s campus, is a former NCAA Division 1 All-American collegiate player, Hong Kong Davis Cup player and National Coach for the Hong Kong Tennis Association’s Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams. Numbers says he knows a good team when he sees it. A key part of the depth is in Henry Ji rejoining the team after being home schooled last year. “Henry’s return gives us a super versatile player who can match up with any team in singles or doubles. He is also very comfortable playing with any partner and making them better. If our team can stay healthy and injury free we have a very good shot at repeating as Div.1 CIF Champions,” Numbers said.

Fire District to hold forum on home fire protection system The Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District (RSFFPD) will conduct a presentation to help community members understand their home fire protection system, including home fire sprinklers, and the proper way to maintain it.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

New York Times bestselling author Jess Walter coming to Rancho Santa Fe BY ROB LEDONNE “I love getting out and meeting readers,” author Jess Walter said enthusiastically from his Spokane, Wash., home, and, as a result, he’s trekking on a book tour for the next few months that will take him all over the country — including an April 22 reception at the Rancho Santa Fe Library where he will talk about his most recent novel, “Beautiful Ruins.” “Writing is a solitary job, so it’s great to come out and meet people who say something I’ve written is one of their favorite books.” Walter has been a wildly successful working writer for the past 20 years; aside from his multiple books and being a New York Times bestselling author, his resume of writing credits lists off a who’s who of magazines, such as Details, Harper’s, and Esquire. With such a long career, it’s no surprise that Walter caught the writing bug at a young age. “Even as a kid I was writing,” he remembers. “Me and my siblings would write stories for a thing we made at home called “Readers Indigestion” when I was 7 or 8 years old, and after that I worked on school newspapers. Throughout it all, I had some nice people encourage me along the way.” Walter parlayed his early writing experiences into a job as an actual newspaper reporter for his hometown publication in Washington, and his Pulitzer Prize-nominated reporting directly led to getting his first book published. “I left to write a book in 1995 called ‘Ruby Ridge,’

about a standoff with separatists and the FBI,” explained Walter, whose career was spurred by the publication of the book by Harper Collins. The controversial book gained national attention, and Walter found himself on shows such as “Good Morning America” and “Nightline.” The book became so popular, it was made into a TV movie starring Laura Dern in 1996. It was from the solid foundation of his first book that Walter has built an impressive and eclectic career, including 2005’s “Citizen Vince” (which won an Edgar Allan Poe award for Best Novel); “The Financial Lives of Poets,” (Time Magazine’s runner up for Book of the Year in 2009); and “We Live in Water” (a collection of short stories published this past February). Said Walter: “I pride myself on writing different things; I’ve won awards for both fiction and nonfiction. The one similarity is that all of my novels tend to have a little humor in them.” Overall, Walter remembers his initial struggles with rejection: “It took me seven years to sell a short story. There’s no easy way when dealing with rejection, you just power through it.” His most recent novel is the satirical and romantic epic “Beautiful Ruins,” a project years in the making which recently spent a few weeks atop the New York Time Bestsellers list and was chosen “Book of the Year” by a number of magazines. “I went to Italy in 1997 and that trip was the initial

spark for this story about a man from Hollywood who meets a beautiful actress in Italy,” says Walter. “I worked on it on and off for about 15 years, and just immersed myself in Italian culture, reading about the clothes, cars and food, and even went to Italy a few times for it.” The story focuses on Italy in the 1960s and Hollywood today. Walter says he finds that everything else he’s written helps enhance the next book. “You become a better writer all the time,” notes Walter. “I try to write seven days a week, usually at the desk by 5 or 6 in the morning.” It’s no wonder Walter is looking forward to his book tour break. The reception for Jess Walter will be held between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at the Rancho Santa Fe Library on Monday, April 22. The $40 dollar ticket includes a light lunch, presentation, question and answer session, and a signed copy of “Beautiful Ruins.” For reservations go to www.rsflibraryguild.org or call 858-756-4780. The Rancho Santa Fe Library is located at 17040 Avenida de Acacias in Rancho Santa Fe, 92067. For more information on Jess Walter, visit http://www. jesswalter.com/

Beautiful handmade wooden toys donated to RSF Library BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe Library was recently the recipient of 100 handmade wooden toys from the San Diego Fine Woodworkers Association, according to member Jim Vitale, who personally delivered the trains, cars, baby doll cradles and high chairs. A group of 50 retired craftsmen make and build the toys to donate to local organizations. This year they are donating toys to all of the county and city libraries. They also recently made donations to the Del Mar Library and plan to visit the Carmel Valley Library. They also hope to donate to local Head Start programs, a program that provides preschool for children of low-income families. The Woodworkers Association currently has 1,500 members, both hobbyists and wood professionals. Vitale himself is a hobbyist, working as a life insurance agent in La Jolla and recently taking up his woodworking again. He has been in charge of selecting toy recipients and delivering the toy haul like a spring Santa Claus. The group of 50 toymakers work with donated wood. The scraps of quality wood come from a variety of sources, from local cabinet carpenters to guitar makers. The toymakers take

great care to make sure that the toys are safe — they use non-toxic paint on the wood and they ensure all of the pieces are big enough so they can’t be swallowed. The toy that the toymakers make the most of are race cars — last year they sent 100 race cars to children in Afghanistan. They have also delivered toys to Tijuana but place

an emphasis on gifting to local nonprofits. “This is one of the neater toys they make,” said Vitale of a train with an engine carefully constructed to link four train cars. “You cannot find craftsmanship like this.” To learn more about the San Diego Fine Woodworking Association, visit sdfwa.org

Local residents Jill and Evan Stone to be honored for longtime support of Foundation Fighting Blindness • Over the last decade, the Stones have raised over $1 million with their fundraising events for Foundation Fighting Blindness, motivated as parents to two children with Usher syndrome, which not only results in profound deafness but causes progressive vision loss. BY KAREN BILLING Local residents Jill and Evan Stone will be recognized for their visionary support of the Foundation Fighting Blindness organization at the May 22 Dining in the Dark event to be held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla. Over the last decade, the Stones have raised over $1 million with their fundraising events for Foundation Fighting Blindness, motivated as parents to two children with Usher syndrome, which not only results in profound deafness but causes progressive vision loss. Both of the Stones’ children, 38-year-old Liz and 31-year-old Adam, were born deaf. They did not discover that their children had Usher syndrome until Liz was a freshman in college and started to experience the symptoms of retinis pigmentosa, the loss of peripheral vision. She was then a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York and attended school with a population of 1,200 deaf students. Her classmates were able to recognize that she was not responding to their waves and gestures. After visiting a specialist, the Stones were told that their children will most likely become blind and that there is no cure. Evan said the words “devastating,” “dismay” and “depression” come to mind when he thinks of what he was feeling as a father that day. “It was just a shock,” Jill said. “Here we’d spent all these years, time, money, education and therapy to get our children to feel good about themselves and make their way in the world and then boom, the other shoe dropped.” “If your child is deaf and blind, your child is cut off from the world almost entirely,” Evan said. Now national trustees for Foundation Fighting Blindness, the Stones held their first fundraiser in 2003 and this year’s Dining in the Dark will be their 11th event. They started with charity wine tastings and auctions, but the Dining in the Dark concept began in 2008. At the event, guests are challenged to eat their main entrée in total blackness. Visually-impaired servers present the food to the guests using a system of ropes and stanchions. The servers share their experiences to help diners navigate their meal under extremely unique circumstances that for the visually-impaired servers is their daily life. “Reactions to Dining in the Dark are truly powerful, I think, because people don’t often realize the daily obstacles of living with low to no vision,” said Jill Stone. “As cuttingedge gene therapy and stem cell research progresses in clinical trials that are already restoring some vision in patients, we’re so hopeful that treatment and cures are in sight.” The Stones’ son Adam has participated in past Dining in the Dark events, attending with his deaf friends, and it is a very different experience for them. “When the lights were on, he and his friends were communicating ferociously,” said Cheyanne Sauter, Foundation Fighting Blindness assistant director of events, western region. “But when the lights go off, he loses all form of communication.” While other attendees can talk with each other to pass

Jill and Evan Stone (right) with their children Adam and Liz. the butter or ask their neighbor what they think it was they just took a bite of, Adam and his friends were only able to use tactical signing to communicate via touch. “We’re in the dark for 20 to 30 minutes but for some people, they live with this their whole lives,” Jill said. “Our idea is not to have that happen.” The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla and the night’s keynote speaker will be Dr. William R. Brody, the president of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Foundation Fighting Blindness’ sight-saving research efforts toward preventions, treatments and cures for retinal diseases such as retinis pigmentosa, macular degeneration and Usher syndrome. Jill and Evan didn’t discover that their daughter Liz was deaf until she was about nine months old. Six years later, their son Adam was born deaf as well, proved by testing done when he was 30 days old. “It wasn’t a good day for us,” said Evan of the day they found that their second child was also deaf. “The only consolation was that we’d gone through so much hard work and found success with Liz and who better to deal with a deaf child than us? We weren’t rookies, we were veterans and at least we knew what to do.” They knew about the right therapy and treatment to help their children learn to speak, they knew all about hearing aids and how to get their children the necessary socialization. They worked with teachers to explain what their children’s needs were as students. “There’s early intervention and laws now to protect kids with special needs but we were sort of paving the roads with this in many cases,” Jill said. Liz spent two years at the Central Institute for the Deaf in St. Louis and Adam was there for six and a half years, until the fifth grade. “That was very difficult for us to be apart and certainly none of us wanted that but it worked to a very great extent,”

Evan said of the school’s success in teaching their children speaking and language skills. Both children were able to come back and be mainstreamed into local schools in the Del Mar Union and San Dieguito Union School Districts and the Stones praised the districts and the teachers for “bending over backward” to meet their children’s needs. Being deaf has not been a roadblock. Liz has gone on to earn her master’s degree in public administration from American University and works as the major gifts officer at Gallaudet University in Washington D.C. She is a mom to the Stone’s four-month old grandchild. Adam is currently working on his Ph.D. in education at Gallaudet, after earning his master’s degree in bilingual teaching and learning at UC San Diego. After the Stone children’s diagnosis of Usher syndrome, the Stones became determined to learn everything they possible could, leading them to the Foundation Fighting Blindness. They became deeply involved with the organization through their many years of fundraising efforts. Both understand the bottom line is raising money for research, especially for an “orphan disease” like Usher syndrome. Orphan diseases are rare diseases that impact a small percentage of the population — fewer than 200,000 people in the country have Usher syndrome, which makes it even more important to generate support and mobilize researchers to tackle it, Evan said. “The government is cutting back on funding research so it’s up to our communities now to fill in the gaps,” Jill said. They have been thrilled to see the advancements that have been made over the 10 years that they have been involved in their fundraising efforts. When they first started, Jill said that scientists didn’t even know one gene that causes retinis pigmentosa —now they know of over 100. Ten years ago there were no clinical trials in progress, now there are 15. Last month, the FDA approved Argos II, known as the “bionic retina” which is able to restore some vision to people who are blind from advanced retinis pigmentosa. The Stones were also encouraged by a case in which sight was able to be restored for a child with a rare eye disease of Leber’s congenital amaurosis. “That’s not just a good job, that’s what’s known as a miracle,” said Evan, who is senior vice president of Legal Services and General Counsel at Pacific Medical Buildings, LLC. “And it was done in large part due to the Foundation Fighting Blindness’s efforts.” The Stones will keep up the fight for sight for the sake of everyone fighting blindness.

Veterans 360 established to help young veterans make successful transition into civilian life Organization needs support in a variety of areas BY KAREN BILLING During a period in early 2011, local resident Rick Collins lost four friends, all members of the military. Two died in combat and two took their own lives. All were under the age of 25. The losses made Collins, himself a veteran of the British military, think about the gaps that exist in providing these young veterans a successful transition back into civilian life. Too many struggle, he said, and the statistics are staggering: 22 veterans commit suicide every day, the highest point since World War II. The unemployment rate for California veterans ages 18 to 24 is nearing 30 percent, with 30,000 more veterans expected to return to the state in the coming year. Among married couples, domestic violence rates are high and many spouses struggle to comprehend combat trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). “That demographic is really the most underserved

and the most at-risk demographic we have,” Collins said. “They are really struggling to find work and find their way in life. They’ve lost everything they’ve known since high school and there’s just not much out there for them to sink their teeth into. If we can come together as a community and help these young veterans it will pay off in a big way.” Collins decided he would do his part to help, launching the nonprofit Veterans 360 last October. Working with a group of 12 young veterans at a time, the organization offers help in engagement, education, employment and healing. “We’re helping 12 young veterans in each squad to move into the next step of their lives, not to head to substance abuse, to become homeless or take their own lives but to be successful,” Collins said. “It seems cliché to say we’re saving a life but maybe we are.” Collins likes a quote from author and actor Capt. Dale Dye, retired USMC, who said, “We didn’t tell them combat is easy. We need to stop telling them civilian life is.”

path to a “meaningful job,” one that Collins believes the veterans have earned. They also participate in service projects together like a build for Habitat for Humanity and Challenge America, helping put together a boating regatta for children with disabilities. They enjoy a few perks as well, such as a recent trip to the Los Angeles set of the new TV show “Hannibal.” The healing process Veterans 360 provides is not healing in the traditional sense, Collins said. He said he knows they won’t be able to cure PTSD but there are steps they can take with the veterans so they can feel supported and understand why they’re feeling how they’re feeling. “We help them with questions like ‘Why am I so angry?’, ‘Why do I drink so much?’” Collins said. Veterans 360 offers flexible treatment modalities that make sense for each person. Some prefer hiking, others like to surf. The Veterans 360 group has worked with other organizations on different types of healing methods: They’ve gone horseback riding with REINS See VETERANS, page 26

French scholar headlines Binder Lit Lectures at UCSD BY STEVEN MIHAILOVICH If you believe the current assault on the artist’s originality through rapid technological advances in media and the resulting piracy is unprecedented, then you’re a prime candidate for Santayana’s axiom “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” UC San Diego’s annual James K. Binder Lectureship in Literature last week featured Roger Chartier (French scholar, author and cultural historian of books, writing, reading and education), whose lecture on April 9 provided a glimpse of the modern dilemma by taking a long look back at the antecedent set by European authors and their manuscripts in the mid-18th century. Titled “From the Writer’s Hand to the Printer’s Mind: Who is the Author in Early Modern Europe?” Chartier’s presentation focused on the history of literary manuscripts autographed by their authors to illustrate the evolution of writers wrestling ownership

Roger Chartier is a major figure in the field of cultural history. His work is rooted in the tradition of the ‘Annales School,’ combining methodological reflection and painstaking empirical research, dedicated to the histories of education, books, and reading in early modern Europe. Courtesy from publishers and other entities, who had previously held sway and manipulated the author’s output for centuries. The process led to the development of the modern copyright as well as the contemporary concept of the writer as an expressive artist. “In order to consider text as individual property, they are to be divorced conceptually from any particular material embodiment

and must be located in the author’s mind or hand,” Chartier said. “Indeed, the nearest that man could come to a material form of an immaterial world was addressed by the author’s hand. “The autographed manuscript thus became the outward and visible sign of the inward and invisible genius of the writer. It was not the case in the 16th and 17th century, when the signature

could be delegated.” By addressing the dual nature of the book as a physical object and as a manifestation of the writer’s mind, Chartier noted the displacement of the author’s ownership of the text in today’s brisk dissemination and permutations of his or her writings through technology, such as the Internet, potentially regressing the culture to a time when the original writer was obscure. “What is missing [today] is the foundation of books, that is to say a text sufficiently stable to be recognized as an object of property and as a creation of an individual,” Chartier said. “The computer is not the book. So another perspective [emerging], sometimes by the reader, mainly by the publisher, also by the author … is to accept their own disappearance in a sense. There is a resistance. There are cases in front of courts to keep the categories of the past.” Chartier gave his talk before an audience of about 60 people at the Atkinson

Pavilion at UCSD’s Faculty Lounge. His appearance marked the return (after a two-year lull) of the Binder Lectures, inaugurated in 2005 to foster links between UCSD and universities specifically in France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Lectures are open to the public. According Stephanie Zed, chairperson of UCSD’s Literature Department, the hiatus was the result of conflicting schedules and difficulties in obtaining visas. Zed added that the Binder Lectureship is critical to promoting the university as a multidisciplinary institution. “The fact is that this is a science school,” Zed said. “Although arts and humanities are very excellent, we’re not making discoveries.” The short list for next year’s guest lecturer includes Dario Fo, the Nobel Prize-winning Italian playwright, and Luciano Canfora, distinguished Italian historian. Chartier said his trip was especially significant because two dearly departed friends and colleagues, Louis Marin and Michel de Certeau, taught at UCSD during the 1970s and 1980s.

Cathedral Catholic student helps man in distress thanks to lifesaving techniques he learned through Athletes Saving Athletes BY KAREN BILLING Trevor Brown didn’t think or hesitate, he just acted when he saw a stranger have a cardiac event and stop breathing at Del Mar Highlands Town Center on April 10. The 17-year-old Cathedral Catholic High senior performed CPR until paramedics arrived and said it just seemed “obvious” to spring into life-saving measures. The identity of the man Trevor helped is not known at this time, nor is his current status. “It didn’t seem heroic to me, a situation just presented itself to me and I had to go help,” Trevor said. “It’s not hard to help people when you know what to do.” Performing CPR was something that Trevor had just been trained to do a little over two weeks before at an Athletes Saving Athletes program at his school. He had even taken part in a CPR demonstration video. Athletes Saving Athletes was created by Advocates for Injured Athletes, an organization co-founded by local resident Beth Mallon and her son Tommy after Tommy suffered a life-threatening neck fracture in 2009 while playing lacrosse at Santa Fe Christian School. Student athletes are nominated to attend the day-long program to learn how they can help save a life in the event of head and neck injuries, sudden cardiac arrest, heat illness, diabetes and asthma. “I just started sobbing when I heard, absolutely sobbing,” Mallon said of Trevor’s actions. “It’s coming up on the four -year anniversary of Tommy’s accident and to have the program actually bring a direct result, to know one of the athletes was able to recognize the situation and step up and intervene, that’s the whole purpose of the program. It shows it works.” The program started in March 2012 and has trained over 1,000 athletes across San Diego County. “It’s been so much hard work and it was all worth it in that one minute,” Mallon said Trevor, the co-captain of the Cathedral Catholic tennis team, was selected to participate in Athletes Saving Athletes by his coach. The training session was held on March 18.

Trevor Brown, using training learned at Athletes Saving Athletes, performed CPR on a stranger who had a cardiac event at Del Mar Highlands Town Center last week. Courtesy photo “I was going in pretty cold, I didn’t know a lot of what they taught me, especially I didn’t know much about cardiac arrest,” Trevor said. That Wednesday just a couple weeks later, Trevor and his mom were going to get a post-tennis practice snack at El Pollo Loco in the

Highlands. As they were leaving, his mom pointed out that a man appeared to be in trouble. “She said, ‘That doesn’t look good’ and I looked over to see a man laying on the ground with his arms sprayed across the asphalt and a woman panicking on a cell phone, doing CPR with one hand,” Trevor said. “I recognized from my training that one-handed CPR wouldn’t be effective.” Trevor got out of the car and went over to tell the woman he could perform CPR. He found that the man was blue in the face, was not responsive and he couldn’t get a pulse. Trevor began compressions. “After about 30 seconds he made a gasping, gurgling noise so I thought I must be doing something right so I continued compressions,” Trevor said. He kept doing compressions for what he said felt like a long time but was probably only about three minutes until the paramedics arrived, one bystander honking the horn of their car to alert the ambulance of their location. After the paramedics treated the man

and had loaded him into the ambulance, a few of them came over to congratulate and thank Trevor for his actions. One told him that he can usually tell who is going to make it and who is not and it looked like this man would recover. “I was really happy and excited to hear that he was going to be OK,” Trevor said. Trevor realized that day he just happened to be wearing his Athletes Saving Athletes shirt during the incident. He said he definitely thinks the program is important and that the training can go far beyond just saving an athlete’s life. Trevor, who has always wanted to be a doctor, will attend Occidental College in the fall and plans on majoring in biology. He plans to play tennis as well. “We nominate leadership athletes to take part in Athletes Saving Athletes,” Mallon said. “For him to step up and have the confidence to say ‘I can do this’…it’s just so wonderful.” To schedule the Athletes Saving Athletes program at your high school or middle school, visit www.injuredathlete.org or contact Beth Mallon at 1-858-361-6553.

Rancho Santa Fe Real Estate: Q1 2013 Performance Summary Overall, Rancho Santa Fe real estate (defined for the purpose of this analysis as all attached and detached residential properties listed with the San Diego Multiple Listing Service for the 92067 and 92091 zip codes) continues to improve in 2013. When comparing the first quarter of 2013 to the first quarter of 2012, we see the recurring theme: stronger demand with less supply. The number of properties sold increased 20%. 50 properties were sold in Q1 2012 versus 60 properties in Q1 2013. Supply declined by 17% when average daily inventory fell from 259 properties in Q1 2012 to 215 properties in Q1 2013. This increase in demand did not go unnoticed by sellers. Average marketing time declined 33%, from 336 days in Q1 2012 to 225 days in Q1 2013. While prices, overall, only edged up modestly by 1.2%, this increased sales activity attracted nearly 30% more new listings. However, when we look at the individual price submarkets in Rancho Santa Fe, we see that this overall market strength is coming primarily from properties with an original listing price less than $5 million.

Truly One of a Kind…A long and private drive leads you to this spectacular 7.52 acre “Peninsula” lot with mature vegetation and stunning panoramic views to the East and South. This is the ultimate in privacy and tranquility, perched far above everything else.

Original Listing Price: less than $3 million In Rancho Santa Fe, the biggest price gains occurred with properties originally listed for less than $3 million. The median sold price for this submarket increased 13.3% when comparing Q1 2012 to Q1 2013. This increase came from sellers starting with higher original listing prices and discounting those prices less than they did in Q1 2012. The medium discount given by sellers to buyers between original listing prices and final sales prices in Q1 2012 was 14.73% compared to 8.63% in Q1 2013. This accounts for nearly half of the median sold price increase between Q1 2012 and Q1 2013. Furthermore, not only did properties sell for higher prices in this submarket, but more sold and faster. Sales increased 15.6% from 32 properties sold in Q1 2012 to 37 properties in Q1 2013. Average marketing time also declined by nearly 40%, from 244 days in Q1 2012 to 147 days in Q1 2013. Much of this strength came from a 23.8% decline in inventory. Going forward it will be important to keep an eye on the rate-of-change of inventory levels to median sold prices to determine how much of this submarket’s price gain is a temporary premium paid for supply shortage. Original Listing Price: $3 million - $5 million Properties with an original listing price between $3 million and $5 million had the largest percentage and absolute increase in the number of properties sold when comparing Q1 2012 to Q1 2013. Sales increased nearly 60%, going from 12 properties sold in Q1 2012 to 19 properties sold in Q1 2013. Sales also accelerated with marketing times contracting by 16.4%. Median sold price rose 8.3%, pushing the median sold price for Q1 2012 from $2,862,500 to $3,100,000 in Q1 2013. While this was a substantial increase, it lagged behind properties with an original listing price less than $3 million. Most of this lag occurred because this submarket did not have the inventory decline that the lower-priced submarket experienced. Daily average inventory declined by 12.7% when comparing Q1 2012 to Q1 2013. With sales climbing, marketing times contracting, prices appreciating, and inventory shrinking, it looks like this submarket is finally making steady, broad, continued improvement. In the recent past, this submarket would capitulate while trying to form a floor. It appears we may have moved past those foundational challenges. Original Listing Price: $5 million or more The upper-end submarket in Rancho Santa Fe is the perfect example of price elasticity. Properties priced to sell are selling faster than they did last year with sellers negotiating closer to their original listing price. The average marketing time for properties sold in Q1 2012 was nearly two years or 717 days compared to 454 days for those properties sold in Q1 2013. The average discount off of original listing price to sold price was 34% in Q1 2012 versus 26% in Q1 2013. While the number of properties sold declined from 6 properties in Q1 2012 to 4 properties in 2013, this is not statistically significant to conclude there was a decline in demand. There appears to be some segments within this submarket where over-pricing is creating pockets of inactivity, causing some sellers to take their properties off the market and thus slowing sales. For example, while there were fewer sales and more new listings, inventory continued to decline. The real estate recovery in Rancho Santa Fe has been bubbling from the bottom up. This submarket was the last to go into the decline and proving to be the last to come out of it. Hints of its recovery are showing as fair values become more broadly established.

Located in the Bridges, this custom designed and built estate exudes Spanish-Mediterranean ambiance on a spacious 2.42 acre lot showcasing panoramic golf course, countryside and sunset vistas. The home spans nearly 7,100 square feet with 5 bedrooms plus an office and 6 baths of casual elegance and high quality construction embellished with the finest imported finishes.

For TPHS alumnus and local author, fantasy comes alive BY ROB LEDONNE When 27-year-old Matt Wolf was attending Torrey Pines High School about 10 years ago, he was a stellar student. “I was this crazy, 4.17 GPA honors kid and I didn’t even care about reading and writing at the time,” he explains from his Solana Beach home. “I continued on that road for awhile until I hit a breaking point.” The pressures of enrolling in honors classes and keeping up perfect scores got to him, and Wolf said he needed to escape, which came in the form of fantasy books — which wound up spurring first a dream, and now a career, as an author. For the past eight and a half years, Wolf has been working on a the “Ronin Saga,” a fantasy trilogy that focuses on themes of honor — the same themes that helped him through his high school years, when he was devouring novels by authors such as Terry Goodkind. “I had these characters who were role models to me,” explained Wolf. “So what I tried to do was to create that in the Ronin trilogy.” Wolf didn’t think to pursue a career in literature right away; when he graduated Torrey Pines, he attended Oregon State University and majored in astrophysics. “I thought I was into it, but didn’t feel like I was following my true passion,” Wolf remembers. “One day, after reading Terry Goodkind (a well-known fantasy author), I went on a walk and started to think about an original story that centered around goblins and all sorts of stuff. I ran back home, sat down at my computer, and started writing.” After those first few pages, it was thanks to the encouragement of Wolf’s mother that he switched majors from astrophysics to literature which, like most other things, Wolf excelled at and not only learned how to write, but to read and write in Olde English and Japanese as well. After writing thousands of pages, Wolf started sending his material out: “I hit a lot of ups and downs. It’s just crazy. I wrote countless drafts, and at one time it was 1,000 pages, and at another point it was just 400 pages.” After sending his material out to publishers, he hit a ton of dead ends while at the same time garnering some high profile support along the way. New York Times bestselling author Tracy Hickman read his manuscript, and Wolf says “the only criticism he had for me was about the cover. So that was really awe-

Matt Wolf some.” In the end, Wolf wound up posting a Kickstarter page to raise some funds and was blown away by the response he received. “At first I sent it out to my Facebook friends and a ton of people I knew donated, but after awhile there were plenty of people I didn’t know pledging big dollar amounts,” said Wolf, who is in the process of self publishing the book which should be available on Nook and Kindle devices soon. “My ultimate goal is to catch a publisher’s eye. If I just get a huge fan base, who knows how long I’ll stay being self-published.” For now, Wolf is celebrating the hard copy release by holding a party at Rancho Valencia on Sunday, April 28, from 3 to 6 p.m. Says Wolf, looking back on his journey from the mere idea to a completed project: “In my mind I always wanted to do this grassroots movement that consisted of really passionate kids who were like me, when I was reading these fantasy stories. They all have characters that can be role models, they’re larger than life and stronger than you can ever be, so when I talk to kids about this, I love seeing their eyes light up.” For more on the “Ronin Saga” and Wolf himself, check out http://roninsaga. com/

Local students among members that shine at thriving San Diego Rowing Club BY ROB LEDONNE On most days amid the picture-perfect conditions of Mission Bay, you’ll find a bunch of rowers between 13 and 80 who are all part of the nationally-known San Diego Rowing Club, an organization that seeks to impart the wisdom, art and craft of being a world class rower. In continuous operation since 1888, the club is now headed in part by Chris Callaghan, the Director of Rowing and Junior Head Coach who has a passion for the sport. “Teaching kids is tons of fun,” he explains from the rowing club’s headquarters. “You get to watch people grow and develop, see boys form into men, and have a positive influence on lives in general.” Callaghan didn’t begin rowing until after high school, but after he started as a walk-on while attending Oregon State University, he quickly became a part of the collegiate team, and then the national team for two years. “I was rowing on the East Coast, and when I decided to move back out west I was looking for jobs and the club here happened to have an opening,” Callaghan remembers. He applied, and the rest is history. The Rowing Club is broken up into a variety of teams divided by age. For the high school-aged rowers, Callaghan says “crew is unlike any other after-school activity. You have to practice five or six days a week, and it’s never just a sitting-on-the-bench sport; everyone practices every day.” Training gets even more strenuous before big competitions, and races themselves are “usually a day or two long, and go from seven in the morning to around six at night, with 60 or 70 races a day.” Most recently, the club traveled to a meet in Tempe, Arizona and came home with 14 gold medals. In addition, for the second week in a row the junior team won an overall trophy. At another meet in San Diego Bay, the club completed the exact same feat: winning another 14 gold medals and the overall winning trophy as well. Among the many North County residents that row, Callaghan says he considers Torrey Pines High School senior

On the girls’ side, rower and Torrey Pines High School senior Gabriella Baracchini is also planning on continuing the sport after graduation, and was recruited by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) to be a part of its crew team. “On the woman’s side, there are lots of scholarships for college. If you have the ability for the sport, there’s a good chance you can get a scholarship,” Callaghan explained. In recent years, the San Diego Rowing Club has grown in size — a point of pride for

Callaghan who noted that “more and more athletes are becoming more and more competitive.” Perhaps that competitiveness comes from the instructors; aside from Callaghan, Susan Francia is the Junior Woman’s Head Coach and also happens to be a two-time U.S. Olympian for rowing. Above all, it’s all about getting fit and having fun. “Fitness is a huge benefit; you won’t see too many overweight rowers. Even if you start out overweight, the more you train your health will improve over time,” said Callaghan, who said they welcome beginners with open arms to their 100plus year tradition. “It’s a great sport to learn at your own pace. You usually start in a boat yourself, and get a great view to boot since you’re right on the bay. There’s 200 members in our club, so there’s always someone to row with.” For more information on the San Diego Rowing Club, check out www.SanDiegoRowing.org for adults, or http://www.sdrcjrs.com/ for the junior divisions.

Maddie Sparber of Rancho Santa Fe, CJ Triana of San Marcos, and Katie Dillon, Emily St. Marie and Annie Huang of Carlsbad are just a few Pacific Ridge School students who spend their Friday nights Skyping with students in China, Taiwan and Korea. These high school students participate in the Service Learning program Lingo Online, which forges personal connections, develops friendships and promotes cultural understanding through teaching English to students across the globe. Lingo Online was created two years ago, when several Pacific Ridge students were inspired by their English teacher’s stories about his experiences teaching in South Korea. Founding members of the group researched methods of teaching English, made contacts in South Korea, and launched their weekly Skype lessons with high school students near Seoul. Starting this year, Lingo Online will also teach Korean college students and elementary school children. The group’s reach has been expanded by connections made with students at Pacific Ridge’s sister school in China, Shidong Shanghai High School. In January, a dozen Chinese students from Shidong Shanghai visited San Diego, staying with Pacific Ridge host families. During their time at Pacific Ridge, the Chinese students met Lingo Online members and immediately expressed interest in ongoing English lessons. Lingo Online is also developing contacts in Taiwan, and working with an exchange student from Denmark to expand the program into a Danish high school. Pacific Ridge students involved with Lingo Online spend their Service Learning class periods at school developing lesson plans and emailing contacts in other countries to continue to expand the reach of the program. Students are also creating educational videos to both simplify and personalize the English lessons. Friday nights are generally spent on the computer: teaching, sharing cultures and making friends. While most of Lingo Online’s work involves online lessons, Emily, Annie and Maddie are taking their passion for teaching language on the road. As part of Pacific Ridge’s global travel program, the three are designing a trip to South Korea next year to visit their students and take their teaching off Skype and into the classroom. The Lingo Online program furthers the educational philosophy of Pacific Ridge School which is distinguished by its emphasis on academic excellence, ethical responsibility and global engagement. The school’s Service Learning Program gives students the tools and resources to provide service to communities within San Diego and around the world. The Service Learning Program integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, encourage civic engagement and strengthen communities for the common good.

FAIRGROUNDS continued from page 1 and Solana Beach and the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority. The district is working on a final settlement of a similar lawsuit filed by the Sierra Club. The 22nd DAA’s website lists six exhibit halls on the property — the three largest are O’Brien Hall at 68,680 square feet; Exhibit Hall at 55,200 square feet; and Bing Crosby Hall at 31,900 square feet. Day said after the meeting that hiring a financial consultant is the first step toward replacing the halls. The district could consider selling bonds to finance construction, or other financing vehicles, he said. The 22nd DAA would then conduct a public process to determine the design, location and parking for the new exhibit space. The fairgrounds is currently missing opportunities to host events because its exhibit space is split into a number of buildings, Day said. A new facility would add only a small amount of total exhibit space, but it would be configured in a way that it could be combined to host large events. At Day’s request, the board also voted to direct staff to begin soliciting ideas from business for use of the fairgrounds’ satellite wagering center, called the Surfside Race Place. The 90,000-square-foot facility was completed in 1991. Over the past 20 years, attendance at the facility has declined steadily, similar to a trend at satellite wagering centers across the country, said a report on the board’s agenda. During the 1990s, daily attendance averaged 2,900, but attendance now hovers between 300 and 350 people

daily, said the agenda report. At Thursday’s board meeting, fairgrounds general manager Tim Fennell said the building can accommodate up to 5,000 people per day. “That’s a beautiful facility that’s totally underused,” said board member David Watson. In seeking board support for looking into other possible uses for the satellite wagering center, Day said a portion of the building would have to be maintained for off-track betting, and alternate uses would have to be consistent with the fairgrounds’ mission of supporting agriculture and entertainment opportunities for the public. By working with a private company, Day said, the district might be able to generate additional revenue that can be used to maintain and enhance the fairgrounds. District staff was directed to seek ideas and proposals from businesses, and then report back to the board. No timeline for set for returning with proposals. In a related action, the board approved a five-year contract with Sleep Train for naming rights to O’Brien Hall. Under the agreement, the company will pay $1.3 million in annual installments. In return, signage stating “sponsored by Sleep Train” will be installed at the exhibit hall. The building will also retain its traditional name of O’Brien Hall, which has been in place since the hall’s construction in 1980. The building was named after longtime Turf Club member and Del Mar resident Pat O’Brien, in recognition of his community service. The fairgrounds will also work with Sleep Train on a “Foster Kids Day at the Fair” promotion, said a staff report. homes and minimize property damage. Creating a defensible space around your home can be as simple as removing combustible vegetation and flammable materials and replanting with drought-tolerant, fire resistive trees, shrubs and plants. Keep vegetation well-maintained and remove any dead foliage throughout the year. Weeds and grasses must be cut below six inches in height. Trees and native vegetation should not come into direct contact with structures or parts thereof. Tree limbs and foliage must be trimmed 10 feet from rooftops, chimneys, and outdoor barbecues. Tree limbs should also be trimmed up at least 6 feet from the ground. Roofs and rooftops

As you might expect from a dog named Maple, she’s very sweet. And she’s very smart. Maple already knows, “Sit, Shake, and Down.” With a few training treats and lots of positive reinforcement, she’ll be eager to learn anything else that you want to teach her. This is a dog that can be a great walking or exercise partner and also an entertaining playmate for children. Maple is an outgoing and active dog that will need regular exercise.

During a fire storm, these homes burn from the outside-in. If you own a home with a wood roof, there is no more time to delay; retro-fit your home with a roof made of non-combustible materials. Many newer roofing materials now resemble wood-shake so homeowners can experience the aesthetic qualities they desire while making their home a defendable one.

er events each year, including weddings, home and garden shows, roller derby meets and gun shows. The 22nd DAA has a $58 million operating budget. Meanwhile, the cities of Del Mar and Solana Beach are pressing their case to be represented on the new joint powers authority board. Most of the fairgrounds property is within Del Mar city limits, and the property is adjacent to Solana Beach. Both cities are affected by traffic, noise and other issues related to events at the fairgrounds. “We feel strongly Solana Beach needs to have a seat at the table as a full voting member,” and that the city should be able to choose its own representa-

tive, said Councilman Tom Campbell at an April 10 City Council meeting. At that meeting, the council agreed to draft a letter to the fair board — copied to the county — spelling out its position. Earlier this month, Del Mar sent a similar letter to Supervisor Greg Cox, who along with Supervisor Ron Roberts, heads the county’s efforts to consider a partnership with the fairgrounds. “It is our understanding that the County and the DAA are considering a governance board made up of nine members of the DAA and five representing the County. We would therefore recommend, in an effort to provide local participation, that the County have eight mem-

bers, of which three would represent the three cities of Solana Beach, San Diego and Del Mar, and that the respective Councils be allowed to make the selections for the board,” wrote Del Mar Mayor Terry Sinnott. Day, however, said the new model as proposed by the 22nd DAA and the county, with a 14-member board, will provide a new and improved voice for Del Mar and Solana Beach, and that the logical partnership is between the 22nd DAA and the county, as both entities share the same boundaries and represent the entire region. State law also contains provisions for partnerships between agricultural districts and counties, he said.

reversal and factors that may be contributing to it,’’ according to Cynthia Burke, SANDAG’s director of criminal justice research. “In the past few years, there have been significant cuts in resources for crime prevention and other law enforcement efforts,’’ Burke said. ``In addition, recent legislation has put new strains on law enforcement by shifting an increasing number of offenders and ex-offenders from state supervision to local supervision.’’ San Diego police Chief William Lansdowne has cit-

ed those issues in past public comments. Other figures in the SANDAG report: • Poway was the most crime-free city with a significant population in the county, with 1.94 violent crimes per 1,000 residents, and 11.55 property crimes per 1,000; • National City has the highest violent crime rate, with 6.29 victims per 1,000 population, and the highest property crime rate among all but the smallest cities at 31.56; • Among the smallest of the cities in San Diego

County, Coronado had a violent crime rate of just 0.86 per 1,000 residents, while Del Mar had the highest property crime rate at 50.31; • The number of bank robberies fell 22 percent, despite an uptick in robberies of all types. The report also shows that the portion of recovered stolen property has consistently dropped over the past decade from 46 percent to 21 percent. Burke theorized that it could be easier to dispose of loot, while law enforcement agencies facing manpower shortages prioritize fighting violent crimes.

ways Keep roadways and driveways clear from overhanging vegetation, which may hinder both evacuation efforts and access of incoming fire engines. From the edge of driveways and roadways, measure 13 feet, 6 inches straight up from the ground. Any overhanging bushes or branches in this area must be pruned back or removed to create vertical tree clearance. Other important items • Remove dead palm fronds on palm trees within 100 feet from a structure or 30 feet from a roadway/ driveway. • Trim combustible vegetation 10-feet away from propane (LPG) tanks, and

keep wood piles at least 30 feet away from any structure on your property. • Stack and store firewood 30 feet from all structures. All flammable vegetation and combustible materials must be cleared or removed within 30 feet of firewood stacks. • Maintain a visible address. Whether it’s a wildfire or an every-day emergency, firefighters need to be able to read your address. Your address number should be visible from the street, with numerals at least 4 inches in height, mounted on a contrasting background. • If you own a private gate, it must be equipped with an approved fire district gate access switch and/or strobe sensor to allow fire-

fighters to access your property during emergencies. Additionally, during wildfires, many firefighters arrive from out of the area and won’t be able to access your gated property. During a wildfire, disconnect the manual override motor on your electric gate, or if you have a manual gate, leave the gate open. Otherwise, firefighters may have to use blunt force on your gate, causing significant damage. If you have questions regarding vegetation management, contact the Fire Prevention Bureau at 858756-5971.

BABIES continued from page 2 and child. “We’re very excited to be a partner with this program. My husband is very concerned with health and healthy eating,” Daneshmand said. In addition to being a mother and a philanthropist, Daneshmand also has a legal career. Daneshmand and her family moved to San Diego from Iran in 1982. She attended Torrey Pines High School, UC San Diego and earned her law degree from California Western School of Law and for the past 15 years has been a practicing attorney at the Bankruptcy Legal Group, specializing in bankruptcy law and debt negotiation. In 2005, the Daneshmands also opened a medical spa, Ageless and Beautiful, in Hillcrest. Sean, who works primarily at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital, serves as the medical director for the spa and Marjan handles the day-to-day management of the business. “I’m busy but I really enjoy what I do. I love being an attorney but at the same time, work is not everything. It’s important to be

able to give back to the community,” Daneshmand said. “Miracle Babies is really my passion…My husband and I couldn’t have imagined Miracle Babies would become as big as it has become.” Miracle Babies has also created a family network, where families who have spent time in NICU can connect, create friendships, offer support to one another and raise awareness about the NICU experience. To help these families, Miracle Babies relies on donations and community support. Their two biggest fundraising events are a Miracle Babies 5K and a Casino Night in August. The first year of the 5K they had 1,000 attendees and it has grown every year. This year’s Moms 5K for Healthy Babies will be held on May 11 at Embarcadero Marina Park South. Daneshmand has taken on the busy task of chairing the walk for the past four years but this year has handed it off. “I’m going to be able to actually walk it this year, I’m excited,” Daneshmand said. Her hope is that there will be Miracle Babies chapters all over the country (already there is a chapter in Atlanta) and they will reach

a point when they are all walking on the same day. In this tough economy, applications for help from Miracle Babies has grown. They went from about five applications in one month to now reviewing 50-60 applications every month. “We worry about making sure the funding is there to be able to help these families,” Daneshmand said. “My goal is to get more support from the community to help us expand.” To donate, get involved or sign up for one of the upcoming events, visit miraclebabies.org.

educate spouses as often a spouse does not understand what their veteran went through in combat and the veteran does not wish to talk about it. They may think their husband or wife is lazy for not being able to get off the couch or not wanting to play with the kids. “If we can educate a spouse on what their [veteran spouse] has been through and how they can work together to address those issues, and what resources there are for a family to overcome this together… that could be really powerful,” Collins said. Collins said the big challenge Veterans 360 has to overcome is dealing with a group of young men and women who don’t readily accept help. “They think ‘I’ll fix it’ and the last thing they want to do is ask for help because of the stigma attached for them. We have to show that asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength,” Collins said. “We won’t push them through the door. If we open the door, we’ll do everything we can to get them to come through but they need to take that first step.”

VETERANS continued from page 9 Therapeutic Riding Program, off-roading with 4 Wheels to Heal, and worked with the David Lynch Foundation’s Operation Warrior Wellness, which stresses the practice of transcendental meditation. One veteran said he felt the most stress relieved from skydiving, so they were able to facilitate that as well. “One size doesn’t fit all,” Collins said. Collins said they really hope to start a program to

Collins spoke of a young Navy vet who lives in her car but refuses to ask for help — yet. Collins stresses the “yet” and is determined that one day Veterans 360 will be able to help her when she’s ready. Collins said none of this will work without community support and he hopes he can get help from local businesses and individuals. Helping Veterans 360 can come in many forms: A community service project that needs to be done; a business willing to offer an internship or hire young veterans; a financial planner willing to teach them about planning a budget; even a local chef who would be willing to open up their kitchen to teach them some cooking basics. “All of these things are invaluable,” Collins said. “They are high school kids in 24- to 28-year-old bodies. They went straight into service, served in combat and then were sent back out into the civilian world. Stuff we take for granted, they haven’t experienced.” Collins said his goal is to replicate what they do in other military hubs across the country. “We’re excited for the

BY CLAIRE HARLIN You don’t always see ladies cross the their legs at the ankles instead of the knees, but if you observe photos of the royal wedding, you’ll notice that is the Queen of England’s form. Likewise, you don’t always see men take off their hat when they enter a room or unbutton their suit jacket before sitting down, but that’s proper etiquette. “If you watch formal events in D.C., you’ll see some do it and it looks better,” said Joanie Mick, chairman of the San Dieguito Cotillion, the co-ed social program that has been teaching local youth, grades 5 through 12, such rules of tradition since 1954. And in May, annual registration will open once again, admitting some 800 young adults and kids from all over San Diego County to the educational organization, which has been running out of the Mission Tower at the Del Mar Fairgrounds for 15 years. The Cotillion isn’t just about etiquette, although the manners and discipline that go along with that foundation manifest in many other aspects of a child’s life, Mick said. The program is consistent, teaching lessons on topics such as table etiquette, phone manners, organization and other social graces since the organization began almost 60 years ago. And getting along with peers, learning to be inclusive and interacting with members of the opposite gender are crucial values kids take away from Cotillion meetings, in which boys and girls march into the venue in a receiving line, formally introducing themselves to the chaperones and their dance partners before practicing formal paired ballroom dances. Mick clearly remembers the first time she attended a Cotillion ballroom dance 10 years ago with her four children, who heard about the program from their friends, and she was blown away by the elegance she witnessed — as were her kids. “They were beaming,” she said of the event, where they heard a lesson on brunch manners. “They talked about it all the way home.” Their guest visit was in the spring, she enrolled her kids in May and they eagerly awaited their first Cotillion event that September, she said. “Boy, that event was so

The Cotillion began in the mid-1950s with four women who were concerned about society’s youth and thought kids needed more etiquette than what’s taught in the home to prepare them for their lives. “They wanted to teach things like shaking hands to looking others in the eye to posture and organization,” Mick said. “These moms wanted to know these things were being enforced in other places, not just at home.” Certain things change with time, but manners shouldn’t, Mick said. However, the Cotillion does add lessons based on the changing times, while staying true to the classic traditions. “We have traditionally taught about telephone manners, but now we add information about emailing and the internet,” Mick said. “We still tell kids how to talk on the phone, because we want them not to lose that, but now we teach them not to text at the dinner table, for example.” And in a competitive world, Mick emphasized that the values kids learn with the Cotillion give them an edge above their peers when it comes to job and college interviews. “It gives them that confidence and self respect,” she said. “They want and enjoy that guidance and direction.” Mick said one of the most important aspects of the Cotillion is ensuring that traditions are not lost amid changing times. “The children of today often expect things to happen to them,” she said. “They don’t think of it as a gift … Too much has been lost in society for generations.” For more information and schedules, visit www.sandieguitocotillion.com.

Rhythm Yoga and Dance in RSF provides a ‘well-rounded’ experience

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANE Y. WELCH If you visit the Rhythm Yoga and Dance studio in the Del Rayo Shopping Center in Rancho Santa Fe chances are you’ll find coowners Frank and Serpil Iszak hanging around — literally. It’s not that they have little else to do, rather it’s that hanging upside down on their custom-designed Yoga Wall has remarkable health benefits. Case in point is the fact that Frank Iszak’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease is in remission, he said. Refusing to let the disease progress, Iszak, 81, started a regimen of wall work using the strap and harness system that safely allows his body to suspend in mid air. “I am in love with our wall! It is the most magical thing I’ve seen in my life,” said Iszak, who has been teaching yoga for 20 years. The system was invented by B. K. S. Inyengar, the ultimate yoga guru, according to Iszak. It has revolutionized the art and science of yoga and is what sets apart Rhythm Yoga and Dance from other yoga stu-

dios. Classes offered to teens and adults are mostly private. “Many of our clients have some kind of physical issues, whether it’s scoliosis, back pain or joint pain. They’ll come to us after they’ve had rehab or surgery and deposit their pain in the studio,” Iszak said. Much of the wall work is conducted one-on-one and is custom tailored to individual needs, he added. Initially there is a bit of a fear factor, said Iszak. “They say, ‘Oh my gosh I have to hang upside down like a bat?’” But once they feel their spine starting to decompress and joints beginning to open up, their movements are going to be more fluid. “They are reacquainting themselves with their bodies and they realize that they have a body that is more than a food receptacle,” explained Iszak. A Hungarian native, Iszak escaped his home country just prior to the revolution of 1956. He commandeered a commercial airplane and landed in West Germany. He recently wrote a book about the historic

event. “Free for All to Freedom” is his memoir that recounts the daring escape. There is also a movie in the development stage, said Iszak, who emigrated to the USA, settling in San Francisco in 1958. After several decades of martial arts practice, Iszak took up yoga and became a registered teacher, then completed the necessary requirement to become the highest rank of Yoga Alliance instructor. He also became a certified personal trainer, a Pilates mat instructor, and a Tai Chi master. Nineteen years ago he met Serpil, his wife. The couple moved to San Diego 15 years ago. Born in Turkey, Serpil came to the USA in 1984 to attend Georgetown University. After marrying Frank she studied to become a yoga teacher. She is also a certified pilates mat and equipment instructor, a Tai Chi master, and has taught over 10,000 yoga and pilates classes during the last 15 years. The couple co-founded Silver Age Yoga Community

Outreach, a nonprofit organization, that offers free yoga classes to the elderly. Ten years ago, with the support of seasoned yoga teachers and gerontology professionals, Iszak designed a new yoga style tailored for the elderly and established an online yoga teacher training course specifically for Silver Age Yoga, certifying over 300 yoga teachers, nationally and internationally. They founded the Rhythm Yoga and Dance studio a year ago. Classes offered to teens and adults include instruction in yoga, including Hatha, Vinyasa, Iyengar wall work, and restorative, along with Zumba dance classes and other private dance classes by request. “The studio creates an atmosphere for the continued education of the mind and body with an enriched environment that provides clientele a well-rounded yoga and dance experience,” said Iszak.

Chart House cashes in on coastal view dining BY KELLEY CARLSON ith a reputation for providing stellar scenery, it’s no wonder people navigate their way to the Chart House for dining. All 18 locations nationwide offer picturesque panoramas, but the Cardiff site is unique in that it has one of the few sea-level ocean views, protected only by a boulder formation. “During the day, our breathtaking views pan the coastline in both directions for miles,” General Manager Patrick Fortner said. “At night, our romantic setting with spotlights that illuminate the crashing waves is unparalleled.” Because the restaurant’s focal point is the surf, its decor is simple and inspired by the natural surroundings. The carpeting is a blend of deep shades that include blue, green and gold, while the sand-colored walls display warm-toned paintings. In one corner of the dining room is the bar with stools, low tables and chairs to sink into, and a TV dialed into sports. Upstairs (used for private parties and overflow dining) there’s a bird’s-eye view of the restaurant and photos of George’s, the original establishment on the site. Sunbeams stream through the skylights; uptempo music can be heard in the background. As a waterfront restaurant, it’s only natural that the Chart House features seafood, along with steaks and other assorted dishes. During weekdays, guests can stop in for happy hour and order house favorites such

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

Chart House’s Strawberry Spinach Salad as Ahi Nachos, consisting of thin tuna slices and pickled ginger on fried wontons with a decoration of wasabi cream. For those who miss out and still want to whet their appetite before diving into an entree, there are more than a dozen starters, including Crab Stuffed Mushrooms that are baked in a white wine sauce. And there are soups and salads, from the award-winning Clam Chowder to Beefsteak Tomato Salad on a bed of spinach that’s tossed in lemon vinaigrette with chopped smoked bacon, blue cheese crumbles, tempura fried onion rings and balsamic drizzle. Among the main dish selections are the Shrimp & Artichoke Linguini tossed with spinach, tomatoes, garlic herb butter and sprinkled with feta cheese; and the Blue

Cheese Filet Mignon, a favorite among the employees. Fortner advises Prime Rib fans to come early for cuts more rare. The children’s menu — which doubles as a two-page coloring book — includes coconut shrimp, grilled chicken breast, chicken tenders, prime rib and hamburgers. To wrap up the meal, options range from the Hot Chocolate Lava Cake, which takes 30 minutes to prepare, to the Traditional Key Lime Pie that is made with Nellie and Joe’s Key Lime Juice. Those who want to save money may want to consider Distinctive Dining, a three-course meal consisting of a starter, entree and dessert for $29.99 per person,

available Sunday through Thursday. On Sundays, the restaurant offers brunch with items as simple as French toast and more elaborate ones such as the seafood quiche, stuffed with shrimp, lobster, crabmeat, jack cheese and spinach. “Rely on our well-trained professional staff to guide you through your dining experience; they won’t let you down,” Fortner said. “Make a reservation one hour before sunset for that picture-perfect moment.” And for that perfect meal, Fortner recommends the current specials of Shrimp, Brie and Artichoke Melt; Strawberry Spinach Salad & Gorgonzola Waffle; and King Salmon with Crispy Potato Leek Cakes.

The benefit, which is presented by Nordstrom and sponsored by TJX Companies Inc., HD Supply Facilities Maintenance and the California Endowment, is being held in observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Chaired by Cyndi Benson, the event raises community awareness while honoring dedicated volunteers and local businesses that have donated time and resources to help San Diegans affected by these relationship issues. This year’s event welcomes author, activist and critically acclaimed actress Marlee Matlin as the keynote speaker. The winner of an Academy Award and Golden Globe for her performance in “Children of a Lesser God� at age 21, she is the youngest recipient of a Best Actress Oscar and one of only four women to receive that honor for a film debut.

Her accomplishments led to receiving honors from President Bill Clinton and being appointed to the Corporation for National Service. Funds raised by the event will be used toward CCS’s full range of domestic violence and sexual assault crisis intervention programs, including emergency response teams, a 24-hour hotline, two emergency shelters, victim advocacy, two transitional housing programs, case management, court accompaniment, clinical services and legal services.

Q&A: David Chase leads the chorus with a Hallelujah! David Chase, Ph.D. has been choral director of the La Jolla Symphony Chorus since 1973. He also serves as a lecturer in the UCSD Music Department and, in 2009, retired from Palomar College where he taught music for 35 years. Under his leadership, the 130-voice chorus performs a mix of musical styles for the LJS&C subscription series in Mandeville Auditorium at UCSD. Last year, Chase made his Carnegie Hall conducting debut where the chorus performed Benjamin Britten’s “Spring Symphony.” He has led the chorus on numerous tours throughout the world, including a 2003 trip to the Kingdom of Bhutan, where La Jolla Symphony Chorus was the first western chorus invited to perform in that country. In fall 2013, Chase will celebrate his 40th year as choral director for LJS&C.

David Chase, Ph.D. If you could snap your fingers and have it done, what might you add, subtract or improve in the area? I would add a “Disney Hall” … and that level of creative support for the arts. Who or what inspires you? Every individual in my family; each in a different way. If you hosted a dinner party for eight, whom (living or deceased) would you invite? Ay! What an opportunity to see how the disparate parts of one’s life might interact! I suspect there would be huge differences of opinion but they’d find common ground. It would be my chance to resolve all my own inner conflicts! Tom Nee, patron saint of LJSC (deceased) Robert Shaw, choral great (deceased) Steve Schick, present star of LJSC and elsewhere Alice Parker, grand dame of traditional choral music John Cage, composer and iconoclast My father (deceased) Darren and Claire Chase What are you reading? Funnily, I’m re-reading “The Deptford Trilogy.” I was a big fan of Robertson Davies long ago and recently, when Steve Schick mentioned the term “Fifth Business” in a talk at UC, I couldn’t remember the details of that book. So I turned back the clock and enjoyed all three of the novels. What is it you most dislike? Filling out and filing institutional forms. What is your most-prized possession? Objects don’t do much for me, but I really prize our little house and garden as a symbol of having made something of our life. What do you do for fun? Mostly quiet times, beach-walks, movies and trips with Ann. What is your philosophy of life? “Put your pants on and go to work!” What would be your dream vacation? I’d like to go back to Provence with unlimited time and spending money. We’ve been to many more exotic places, and loved them, but the south of France keeps beckoning me back.

Del Mar Cosmetic Medical Center first in county to use new skin-tightening technology In his more than 30 years of practice, Dr. Maurice Sherman of the Del Mar Cosmetic Medical Center has followed every new innovation that has hit the aesthetic medicine market, sometimes taking a pass and sometimes embracing a new procedure that revolutionizes the industry. “Everything has about a three-year cycle,” said Sherman, who stepped into plastic surgery after years of working as a flight surgeon doing head and neck reconstruction in the Navy. “The first year the buzz is on the uprise, the second year it seems to level out because people have gotten experience with it, and then by the end of the third year, you don’t hear anything else.” Sherman said if the equipment or treatment is still around at the end of the third year, then you can be assured it has some validity — and there’s a new procedure he has welcomed to his practice that he thinks will be sticking around longterm. The Del Mar Cosmetic Medical Center is the first in San

Diego County to offer a “minimally invasive” skintightening therapy called Thermigen, which uses a temperature-controlled distribution of radio-frequency under the skin as an alternative to injectables such as Botox. “Basically, it creates a pinpoint injury to the nerve so the nerve can’t fire and cause the muscle to contract, whereas Botox chemically blocks the nerve impulse from entering muscle,” said Sherman, adding that the difference for clients is that the effects of the Thermigen lasts up to two years, as opposed to the three-month life span of Botox treatment. So new to the market — less than a year — the treatment has long-term pioneers in the industry, such as Sherman, who are using the treatment and providing information to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help with the approval process. So far, the FDA has only approved the treatment for one purpose, to be used on the frown lines found between the eyebrows. However, Sherman said the results

Dr. Maurice Sherman he has seen under the chin and on the armpits are positive. He said he has introduced the idea of using the treatment on patients who have built trust in him over the years, and interest in using Thermigen, currently as an “off-label” procedure, is gaining speed at his Carmel Valley practice. “You don’t want to be the first nor the last to pick something up,” said Sherman, adding that he has thoroughly evaluated Thermigen and seen demonstrations and results from other doctors’ offices around the nation. “I’m the only one in San Diego County using it so far, but I think it will take off … We have actually had other doctors visit here to see how it is done, and we plan to have a workshop for local doctors interested in the technology.” For more information on Thermigen or to schedule a free consultation, call (858) 350-8400 or visit www.drsherman.com.

Map Museum hosts California collection by legendary artist Jo Mora BY LINDA HUTCHISON California’s colorful history and geography are alive and well-illustrated (and on display for all to enjoy) thanks to a new exhibit at the Map and Atlas Museum of La Jolla. The museum has gathered 14 maps created by California artist Jacinto “Jo� Mora from 1927 to 1949 and will display them through early December. The maps – or cartes – as Mora called them, are vibrant and light-hearted. They reflect Mora’s love of California and his background as a book illustrator and cartoonist. The majority of Mora’s maps in the collection depict California, including the entire state, the Monterey Peninsula, Yosemite, Catalina, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The San Diego map was commissioned in 1928 by city philanthropist George Marston to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his department store, which first opened at 5th Avenue and State Street (and was sold to The Broadway in 1961). Visitors to the exhibit can purchase a reproduction of the San Diego map. The idea for the Mora exhibit was developed by

Richard Cloward, director of the Map & Atlas Museum of La Jolla, points to the Walt Disney Studios illustrated on Jo Mora’s colorful map of Los Angeles. PHOTO/LINDA HUTCHISON museum founder Michael Stone and museum director Richard Cloward. Both retired U.S. Naval officers and avid cartography collectors, they have worked together since the museum opened two years ago. “We already had five Mora works, which people were very drawn to,� explained Cloward. “Mike wanted to complete the collection. “People are comfortable with Mora’s maps because they are user-friendly, welcoming and whimsical. They appeal to people of all ages, adults and children. They are about California and San Diego and tell a


whole history ‌ and Mora was an interesting person.� The son of a South American artist father and a French intellectual mother, Mora was born in Uruguay in 1876. The family immigrated to the United States and Mora grew up in New York and New Jersey. His brother Luis became a wellknown artist and teacher on the East Coast. Mora worked as book illustrator and newspaper cartoonist in New York and Boston. But something about the West called to Mora and he moved to the central coast of California in 1903. He spent two years living with the Hopi and Navajo

Indians in Arizona, photographing and drawing them, learning their language, and working as an interpreter for the U.S. Army. He traveled up and down California on horseback, retracing the route of the Spanish missionaries on the King’s Highway, visiting the missions, and writing about and illustrating the history of the early Spanish settlers (Californios) and the Spanish vaqueros, or cow herders, who were the forerunners of the American cowboys. Mora is sometimes called the “Renaissance Man of the West� because, in addition to drawing maps, writing, and illustrating, he also created many murals and public works and was a well-known sculptor, who worked in wood, stone and bronze. In 1925, he designed the commemorative half dollar for the California Diamond Jubilee. In San Francisco, he created the Cervantes sculpture in Golden Gate Park and the Bret Hart Memorial on the wall of the Bohemian Club. He painted wall murals for Julia Morgan’s Los Angeles Examiner building and created a WPA bas-relief sculpture for a King City high school building. He died in

1947 just before his 71st birthday in Monterey, where many of his works are now on permanent display at the Maritime Museum. In La Jolla, his current exhibit also includes two pieces of sculpture with a Western theme, “Twister� and “Straight Up and Scratching,� a children’s book he wrote and illustrated, and a poster called “Evolution of the Cowboy,� which was used as cover art for The Byrd’s “Sweetheart of the Rodeo� album in 1968. According to Cloward, Mora was meticulous about keeping records, so that has made the job of collecting and curating his works easier. “We know where every copy is,� he said. The Map & Atlas Museum of La Jolla is the only one of its kind west of the Mississippi that is free and open to the public. In addition to offering regular viewing hours, the museum offers group tours and welcomes students. Assistant Director Rosalind Gibson handles the educational side of running the museum. Recently the San Diego French American school visited and were so inspired they are creating their own carte – in French, of course.

More than 200 players and coaches from leagues and high schools across the county attended Sunday’s Clinic. High school standouts from around the county — Kailey Hill, Ramona High School; Hannah Gilliland, Cathedral Catholic; Cortney Horne, West Hills; and Sarah White, Rancho Bernardo — came out to lend a hand.

Softball clinic fundraiser held at Cathedral Catholic to benefit Cunningham family On April 14, friends of the Cunningham family held a softball clinic fundraiser on the Cathedral Catholic campus. On the evening of March 17, the wife and three daughters of Cathedral Catholic High School head basketball coach Will Cunningham were struck by a driver heading the wrong direction on State Route 52. Medics took Cunningham’s wife Alisa, a softball pitching coach, and their three daughters to the hospital. The Cunninghams’ younger two daughters were released from the hospital about two weeks after the accident; Mrs. Cunningham (Alisa) and daughter Taylor remain hospitalized. The Cunninghams have coached youth and high school sports in San Diego for years, and on Sunday, April 14, recreational players, high school players and coaches from around the county came out to support the family. The softball clinic raised $14,000 to help alleviate the Cunninghams’ mounting medical expenses. If you would like to donate to the Cunningham family, please visit www.cathedralcatholic.org and follow the link.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

To Your Health: Early childhood immunizations offer important protection BY MARK SHALAUTA, MD, SCRIPPS HEALTH When an outbreak of pertussis or “whooping cough” swept across the U.S. in 2010, more than 27,000 people came down with the disease. Among the 27 deaths reported, 25 were in children younger than 1 year of age. Whooping cough isn’t the only “childhood” disease that has been making a comeback. According to the CDC, 222 people were reported to have measles in the United States in 2011, the highest number reported in any year since 1996. A potentially serious and even life-threatening disease for young children, measles is still common in many other countries, including Europe, Asia, and Africa. It is highly contagious and can be brought into the U.S. by unvaccinated residents and visitors who become infected while traveling abroad. Typically, diseases such as whooping cough and measles are kept under control by immunizations given during the first two years of an infant’s life. Immunizations expose the body to a miniscule, safe amount of a virus or bacteria that has been killed, is very weak, or has been artificially created. The immune system quickly learns to recognize this invader and defend the body against future attacks. Consequently, the next time the body is exposed to the virus or bacteria, the immune system kicks in and either prevents infection or weakens the severity of the illness. Since the widespread introduction several decades ago of infant immunizations in the U.S., vaccine-preventable diseases have dropped to historically low levels. Following the recommended infant immunization schedule provides the best protection against 14 serious childhood illnesses early in life, before they are exposed to these diseases. However, according to a study by the National Immunization Program, more than one in three children may be “under-vaccinated” for more than six months during the first two years of their lives, increasing their risk for highly contagious diseases such as measles. Many of these cases are a result of parents delaying their child’s vaccines, or not getting them at all. To provide maximum protection, the right vaccinations need to be given at the right time. Most immunizations are given as a series of shots over a number of months or years beginning at two months of age and ending by age 6. Failing to immunize infants and children according to recommended schedules increases their own risk of illness, and opens the door for diseases to become more widespread in the community. Following is a partial list of recommended immunizations, and the number of shots in each series: • Hep B: Protects against the hepatitis B virus, an infection of the liver (3). • DTaP: This combined vaccine protects against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, also known as whooping cough (5). • RV: Protects against rotavirus, which causes severe watery diarrhea, often with vomiting, fever, abdominal pain and dehydration. • Hib: Protects against Haemophilus influenza type b, which can lead to meningitis, pneumonia and a severe throat infection (3-4). • PCV (pneumococcal conjugate vaccine): Protects against pneumococcal disease which can cause ear infections and more serious illnesses (4). • IPV (inactivated poliovirus): Protects against polio (4). • MMR: Protects against measles, mumps, and rubella or German measles (2). • Varicella: Protects against varicella, also known as chickenpox (2). • Hep A: Protects against the hepatitis A virus.(2) In recent years, some concern has been expressed about the safety of vaccines, especially combination vaccines that protect children against several diseases with one shot. However, both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Institute of Medicine agree that vaccines are not responsible for the number of children now recognized to have autism or ADHD. Moreover, they conclude that the benefits of immunization far outweigh the risks. In most cases, immunization side effects are very mild and may include redness, soreness or slight swelling at the injection site. Rarely, a child may have a reaction to a shot, in which case the physician will recommend whether to continue with the rest of the series. Parents who have questions or concerns should talk with their child’s physician. Current information about immunizations and schedule recommendations are available at www.vaccineinformation.org, and the American Academy of Pediatrics’ website at aap.org . Mark Shalauta, MD, is a family medicine physician with Scripps Health. “To Your Health” is brought to you by the physicians and staff at Scripps.

Honor our planet by going green on Earth Day The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Earth Day is celebrated globally on April 22 as folks pay homage to the planet’s bounty with a rekindling of community awareness and commitment to a cleaner, greener, safer place in the universe we call our home. So rally your sustainable sensibilities while kicking up your heels and shrinking your carbon footprints. Establish roots in your community Become an intrepid landscaper by cultivating “green” gardening techniques —enliven your outdoor space by conserving water and using native plants and pesticide-free edibles. Plant a Mediterranean herb garden with

basil, thyme, rosemary and Italian parsley, along with fruit trees and veggie gardens suitable for California climes (heirloom tomatoes, avocados, apricots, zucchini, plums, low-chill apples and figs). For apartment or condo dwellers, plant a windowsill garden and dwarf Meyer lemons that thrive indoors. Be a bag lady Environmentally friendly eco-totes are flying off shelves faster than you can say “paper or plastic?” In this country, 88 billion plastic bags made of non-renewable petroleum are consumed yearly. Some of these troublemakers suffocate birds, choke sea critters and take 100 years to decompose. While paper bags produce heaps of solid waste, and require more energy to recycle than plastic. Invest in a handful of recyclable cotton totes (some insulated and waterproof) that also keep perishables from perishing. Another incentive is the bag credit awarded at natural food supermarkets, and the bag bylaw in Solana Beach, now charging customers for paper shopping bags. My eco-tote of choice is the Tote Buddy (thetotebuddy.com) that helps organize a pile of reus-

able bags in a decorative folder. Set a sustainable table Reusable flatware, glassware and dishes trump paper plates and plastic cups and cutlery by a long shot. Snagging second place are biodegradable or unbleached, recycled plates and cups and bamboo utensils. Do as the French do and use cloth serviettes instead of paper napkins. If beverages are served from cans and bottles — recycle. Where possible, buy in bulk to cut down on package wastes. For leftovers, pack in glass storage containers that are also freezer-friendly. Be a SoCal local Buy seasonal and local (if possible, organic as well), it’s healthier for you, (your wallet), and the community. These not only have fewer chemicals (pesticides and synthetic fertilizers), but a smaller carbon footprint since they are not road- or jet-lagged, travelling fewer miles to market, wasting less energy. Check out farmers markets and seasonal produce charts for best bets. Where’s the beef? Recent studies have

Chilled Green Bean Soup My Earth Day contribution is this ecofriendly recipe that will cool you down during the steamy globally-warmed summer nights ahead. Serves 4. Use organics when possible. Ingredients: 1 pound fresh green beans (trimmed, quartered) 1 sweet onion, diced 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 8 cups filtered, boiling water 2 eggs 6 tablespoons plain Greek yoghurt 1 tablespoon brown sugar 2 tablespoons lemon juice 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest 1/4 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon dried parsley 1/4 teaspoon dried basil Sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste Method: In a stockpot sauté onions in oil on low until translucent, then add the water, green beans and lemon zest. Cook unshown that cow flatulence and sheep belches emit millions of metric tons of methane gas into the air every year (one-fifth of total greenhouse gas emissions) — even more than cars. Substitute an organic quinoa burger or grilled Portobello for a beef burger on a bun. If you must do meat, make it grass-fed and organic.

til the beans are al dente. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. In a blender mix eggs, yoghurt, lemon juice, herbs, spices, sugar, salt and pepper, and whip until frothy. Slowly stir this blended mixture into the soup. (This is a delicate operation since the eggs must cook but not curdle). Cool at room temperature, then chill. Serve in environmentally-friendly bowls like tempered glass. Garnish with lemon slices and sprinkle with paprika.

Green grilling This time gas beats out. Using natural gas and propane grills is more energy efficient, cleaner, and produces less waste (including greenhouse gases) than using the charcoal counterparts. If you’re a die-hard charcoal grill-meister, consider swapping out conventional char-

coal for more eco-forgiving types. Lump or hardwood charcoal produces less ash byproducts when burned, while ceramic briquettes and lava rocks don’t burn at all, rather absorb and radiate heat for even distribution.

The proceeds from the event benefit research, treatment and education programs at City of Hope, aiding the treatment and research center’s efforts to expand awareness of the importance of the mind-body-spirit connection when battling cancer, diabetes or HIV/AIDS. McCarthy’s goal in her yoga teachings and practice is to help balance the mind, body and soul while awakening the spirit. Many people undergoing treatment for cancer have found that the practice of yoga helps to restore energy, reduce stress levels and help bring peace and positivity to their body and mind during a very trying time. McCarthy’s cutting edge classes are unique as she uses a variety of techniques and tools for accessing and sustaining mental, emotional and physical well-being. Location: Pacific Athletic Club Lawn Area near the Pool, 12000 Carmel Country Road, San Diego 92130.
