Costs to buy water to increase next year for Santa Fe district BY JOE TASH A dry winter and an expected increase in water costs from its suppliers means that the Santa Fe Irrigation District’s costs for buying water will rise by about $1.5 million next fiscal year, according to a budget presentation at the district’s Thursday, April 18, board meeting. For now, the district is planning its budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1 without building in a rate increase for customers. Instead, the budget relies on an infusion of $1 million from reserves to cover rate increases charged by the district’s suppliers, the San Diego County Water Authority and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

The district could decide to raise rates later this year or early in 2014, after it completes a planned “cost of service study,” which will help determine where the district’s rates should be set for the next three years to cover the cost of operations and capital projects. The five-member board will have to weigh all factors before setting the rates for next year and beyond, said board president Michael Hogan in an interview. From his perspective, Hogan said, rates should reflect the increases charged by its suppliers. Over the long term, he said, the district can’t keep dipping into reserves. “You may get by on (reserves) one year but you find you’ve dug a deeper

hole… it catches up to you,” Hogan said. In recent years, the district has cut programs and staff, and maximized its use of local water to reduce its operating costs. “We’re all trying to keep (rates) down as low as we can,” Hogan said. Water customers in San Diego County have been hit with a series of rate increase in recent years, as wholesale water prices have spiked upward. The Santa Fe district has imposed annual rate increases for the past six years totaling 74 percent, including a 6 percent increase that took effect Jan. 1. The district’s operating budget for the next fiscal year is projected at $22.6 See WATER, page 28

Branding survey mailed to 200 Covenant residences BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe Association’s Community Awareness Committee has finalized a new branding survey that was recently mailed out to 200 random Covenant houses this week. The survey is a part of the RSF Association’s efforts

to evaluate various branding and positioning strategies for the Ranch. Board member Craig McAllister said if people are lucky enough to receive the survey they are encouraged to fill it out and send it in at their earliest convenience, preferably by

May 3. The committee is aiming for a good response rate. “We’re very excited, I think this will give us a lot of information and hopefully get us moving in the right direction,” said RSF Association Board President Roxana Foxx.

Rancho Santa Fe Village Parks improvement work begins BY KAREN BILLING A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the RSF Village Parks on April 18 to kick off work on the extensions of the two triangular park segments, as well as a new ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) ramp and sidewalk improvements. RSF Association board members wielded golden shovels to make ceremonial divots — the county was expected to begin actual work by April 22, which is scheduled to take 20 to 25 working days. An RSF Association member with physical chal-

lenges had trouble getting into the parks at last year’s July 4 parade and requested that the board look into making the changes. The extensions of the current curb lines will make more of a peninsula on the two park edges at Avenida de Acacias and Linea del Cielo and on the other side at La Gracia and Avenida de Acacias. The extensions provide room for pause for a person crossing through the five-way intersection. “It really strengthens the connection from The

RSF Association wants to have more input on potential race routes through the Covenant BY KAREN BILLING Close to 800 bicyclists buzzed through Rancho Santa Fe over the weekend as part of the Tour de Cure race. While several times a year special runs or rides come through the Ranch fundraising for good causes, the RSF Association would like to have more input on potential routes not only for the sake of impact on local residents but also to ensure the safest passage for participants. RSF Association Manager Pete Smith said this is a growing issue as organizations have discovered that hosting walks or rides is a very easy way to raise money. Each year there are already four to six charity events that utilize Covenant roadways and many times the Association is given only a few weeks or even just a few days of advance notice. At its April 20 board meeting, the RSF Association board approved sending a letter to the county that would require applications be submitted three to six months before the event and asking that the Association be notified as soon as applications for events are received by the county so the Association can help coordinate routes and planning. Chris Livoni, associate planner, said that county representatives aren’t always familiar See ROUTES, page 28

RSF Association members sign petition in New RSF Historical Society board support of former Golf Club employee working to preserve RSF’s treasured past BY KAREN BILLING A group of Rancho Santa Fe residents appeared before the RSF Association board April 18 and said they are looking to get some “respect and dignity� for a longtime RSF Golf Club employee who was recently terminated. A petition signed by 161 members was presented to the Rancho Santa Fe Association board in support of the employee, who was fired after working 17 years at the club as a bartender. “We’re just looking for a resolution that’s fair,� said Sam Ursini, the resident driving the efforts. “Like all of us she may have had her shortcomings but they were far outweighed by her loyalty, sense of humor, colorful personality and energy.� The goal of the petition, according to those who signed it, is not to have the employee reinstated but to ask that the RSF Association write her a letter of recommendation so she can get another job; give her a letter of appreciation thanking her for her 17 years of service; provide her with severance pay; and not oppose her application for unemployment. RSF Association Manager Pete Smith said the RSF Association does not comment publicly on personnel matters.

BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society’s new board got to work on Tuesday, April 16, to continue its mission to “collect, preserve, research and interpret� the documents, photos and artifacts that connect the community to the past. The Historical Society aims to help people learn more about the history of Rancho Santa Fe through its archives, special events, educational programs and publications. One such way is through the village walking tour. Thanks to a grant from San Diego County last year, the Historical Society recently had new maps printed up for the tour, a glossy pamphlet filled with information and past and present photos of 14 village landmarks. The RSF Historical Society is always looking for volunteers to keep its nonprofit organization running. Volunteer opportunities include helping with events, training as a docent, transferring archived data to computers, scanning photos and articles or helping to plan the summer home tour.

RSF’s Jayden Gillespie wins top honors County to move ahead with plans at RSF Middle School Speech Contest to form joint powers authority Jayden Gillespie took top honors and a $500 prize Feb. 21 in the RSF Middle School Speech Contest with a speech that challenged listeners titled “Leave Your Mark.” Ten finalists competed in the finals — five 7th graders and five 8th graders. Those 10 talented speakers were first winners in their respective writing classes and then winners of the semi-finals held two weeks before the contest. Seventh graders focused their speeches on the “This I Believe” essays which began in 1951. Radio pioneer Edward R. Murrow asked Americans from all walks of life to write essays about their most fundamental and closely held beliefs. The five finalists were Peyton Boyd, Lorenzo Patino, Ashley Perison, Victoria Sabadicci and Elle Schneider. The eighth graders used one of the tenets of Rachel’s Challenge as the focus for their speech.

BY JOE TASH County supervisors voted unanimously April 23 to move ahead with plans to form a joint powers authority with the state board that oversees the Del Mar Fairgrounds, which could lead to the formation of a new, 14-member board to manage fairgrounds operations. The county has been in talks with the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which currently manages the state-owned property in coastal North County, to create a new governance model that provides more local control over the facility. More than 40 people, including elected city and state officials and their representatives, spoke in favor of the proposal at the meeting, which was held at the County Administration Center in downtown San Diego, versus a handful of speakers who criticized the proposal or sought to delay a decision. Supervisors also declined requests from the cities of San Diego, Del Mar and Solana Beach to make them voting members of the new board. Instead, Supervisor

Dave Roberts, a former member of the Solana Beach City Council, requested his colleagues consider adding “ex officio,” or non-voting, seats to the new board for the three cities, whose boundaries either include portions of the fairgrounds property or are adjacent to the fairgrounds. “Some people are going to lynch me in my district for saying that,” said Roberts, who was elected to the Board of Supervisors last November. Both county officials and members of the 22nd DAA board — who are appointed by the governor — said state law allows the 22nd DAA to form a partnership with the county, but not a city. “Unfortunately, that’s not allowed under existing state law,” said Supervisor Greg Cox, who, along with Supervisor Ron Roberts, brought the issue forward to the full Board of Supervisors last fall. While acknowledging that the three cities want full representation on the board, Cox said the plan approved Tuesday will increase regional representation on

the board that oversees the fairgrounds. “I hope we don’t lose sight of the possible in pursuit of the perfect,” Cox said. Supervisors on Tuesday directed their staff to work with the 22nd DAA to draw up an agreement for the new board, which will come back before the Board of Supervisors in about 60 days. If the partnership is eventually formalized, the new board would be made up of the current nine members of the 22nd DAA board, plus five new members appointed by the county supervisors. Each supervisor could nominate either him or herself for the new joint powers board, or a representative. San Diego Mayor Bob Filner asked supervisors to put off a decision for 30 days to allow more discussion, and to create seats for the three cities. “We want to be involved,” Filner said. Del Mar Councilman Don Mosier, and Solana Beach Councilwoman Lesa Heebner also spoke, asking See COUNTY, page 28

Former TPHS football coach looking for families to host Japanese players this summer Former Torrey Pines football coach Ed Burke is hosting a high school football team from Japan in August and is looking for families to help out by hosting a player in the home. You would be asked to provide lodging, meals, and transportation to and from school during their stay. The team is comprised of 19 senior boys and two senior girl trainers. They will arrive on Saturday, Aug. 17, and depart early Tuesday, Sept. 3. The team will be attending school and practicing at Torrey Pines during their stay, so most of the transportation needs will be similar to that of your own family members attending high school. Most of the meals will be breakfast and dinner types, although there will be times when the team will be attending special events where the meal will be supplied. A daily stipend of $15 to help offset your food and gas expenses will be provided. This will be the seventh year that the senior members of the Ritsumeikan Uji Panthers football team selected Torrey Pines to be the host school for their “required” senior trip. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know students from another culture, and to enjoy an experience that will provide lifetime memories for you and your family. Having done this six previous times with Falcon football parents, Coach Burke guarantees that it will be one of the best experiences of the year for you. In order to insure that the players are in an English speaking environment, Ritsumeikan Uji is requesting that each student be housed separately. If interested, please contact Ed Burke by phone at (760) 331-7412 or through email at

Rancho Santa Fe Review

RSF resident thrives in avocation as a news helicopter pilot BY KAREN BILLING Rancho Santa Fe resident Ruben Campos is “living the dream” — being paid to fly a helicopter, his biggest passion. Campos was recently named the pilot for KFMB CBS Channel 8 Chopper 8, the only news helicopter in the city. “To be up in the air, especially in a helicopter hovering, that’s the ultimate. In an airplane you take off and it can basically fly by itself. In a helicopter, you can’t take your hands off the controls,” Campos said. He enjoys the extra challenge of piloting a helicopter and can’t help but gush when he talks about his amazing opportunity. Flying the news helicopter is only a part-time job as Campos has worked full time for Qualcomm for 18 years as a staff engineer/manager. Campos first started flying in 1998 in commercial and multi-engine airplanes. He always thought it would be cool to fly a helicopter and did some introductory flights at Civic Helicopters at Palomar Airport in Carlsbad. “I was addicted,” Campos said. He received his private pilot license and commercial pilot license at Civic and did his instrument ratings at Heliclass in Van Nuys. In addition, Campos was also trained to fly the Bell Jet Ranger 206B3 at Bell Helicopter Training Academy in Fort Worth, Texas. That advanced training helped Campos to be competitive as a pilot as the Bell certificate carries a lot of weight in the field. The training also made him feel extremely confident at the control of a helicopter. Campos’ first news helicopter gig was with Sky10, KGTV 10 News. Due to the high expense of helicopters, all of the news stations recently got together and determined that they would all use one helicopter to provide live feeds for all stations. Campos was hoping that he and his “talent” reporter Phil Konstantin would be the crew selected to fly the one helicopter but the decision was made to go with Channel 8. Campos lost his helicopter job for about a month and a half until the position opened up again. April 9 was his first day back, reunited with Konstantin. “It was really cool to get to fly together again,” Campos said. With Chopper 8, Campos has to be awake by 3:30 a.m. to be up in the air by 5 a.m. “To me it’s no big deal because I know I’m going to fly,” Campos said of the early call time. “When I’m up there, seeing the sunrise over the city, to me it’s all worth it. Literally, it’s heaven.” Campos flies to get “beauty shots” for the news, at all different parts of the city, from Vista to the Mexican border. The chopper then does typical live traffic shots and will handle breaking news. “You’ll never forget your first car pursuit,” Campos said.

His first car chase was exciting because he was able to get up in the air just as the chase was starting. They followed the car for about a half an hour with the entire sky to themselves as the other news chopper was not in service and the police helicopter was not up either. The chase eventually ended in Mira Mesa and the police instructed them to stop following the car and Campos had to fly off to his next assignment — from a high-speed chase to shooting the high surf at La Jolla Shores. Flying over such a scenic city is nice perk for a news chopper pilot, Campos said. “I love flying downtown over Coronado Bridge. My dream would be to fly underneath the bridge but you can’t do that,” Campos said. “Flying over the beaches is nice and I especially love flying over the water because you can fly as low as you need to as long as you’re not a hazard to people or property.” Campos wishes he had the time to do more flying on the Electronic NewsGathering (ENG) force and his ultimate goal would be joining his two jobs and flying for Qualcomm. For now, he is living his dream of being able to be up in the air. While he loves flying, he gets a kick out of his children Miranda and Sebastian (“my treasures,” he calls them) thinking he has the coolest job of all. “For them to be proud of me, that is priceless,” Campos said.

new novel at upcoming event On Wednesday, June 26, at 7:30 p.m., Warwick’s and Words Alive will present “Khaled Hosseini in Conversation.” Warwick’s and Word’s Alive are pleased to welcome back Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of “The Kite Runner” and “A Thousand Splendid Suns” as he discusses his newest novel, “And the Mountains Echoed,” with Martha Barnette, the co-host of radio’s A Way with Words. The event will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, 700 Prospect St., La Jolla, This is a ticketed event. Tickets are $32 per person and are available only through Eventbrite at Tickets include a copy of “And the Mountains Echoed.” “And the Mountains Echoed” is an unforgettable novel about finding a lost piece of yourself in someone else. Hosseini has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children, but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe — from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos — the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page. Words Alive is a nonprofit reading advocacy organization that inspires a commitment to reading and develops shared reading experiences for children, youth and adults.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

‘The story’s the thing’ for Pulitzer Prize-winning author BY JOE TASH The idea for Geraldine Brooks’ latest novel grew out of a detail she glimpsed while reading a historical document about what was then her new home, the island of Martha’s Vineyard off the coast of Massachusetts. Brooks, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her 2006 Civil War novel “March,” read an entry about Caleb Cheeshahteaumauk, the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College. She did a double-take when she realized the young man had graduated in 1665, and not 1965, as she had originally supposed. “That just raised so many questions in my mind,” said Brooks, a former foreign correspondent for the Wall Street Journal who was the featured author for the Thursday, April 18, meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society. Brooks began to research the story, as she has for three previous historical novels, but found little about the young man’s life to satisfy her curiosity. So, she decided to build her own story around the fact of Caleb’s academic achievement, which turned out to be the novel “Caleb’s Crossing,” published by Viking in 2011. “It’s important to me to follow the line of fact as far as you can and imagination fills in the voids and silences,” said Brooks in an interview before her talk at the Literary Society luncheon, held at the Grand Del Mar Resort in Carmel Valley. Brooks set her novel in Martha’s Vineyard, which in the 1600s was occupied by Puritans, the white settlers who had emigrated from England, and several Native American tribes. Her first-person narrator was Bethia, the teenaged daughter of a preacher, who forms a friendship with Caleb. “Who are we, really? Are our souls shaped, our fates written in full by God, before we draw our first breath? Do we make ourselves, by the choices we ourselves make? Or are we clay merely, that is molded and pushed into the shape that our betters propose for us?” Bethia wonders. In researching her book, Brooks said, she learned that girls of Bethia’s time were taught to read, so they could read the Bible to their children, but not to write, because that was a skill reserved for males to communicate outside their families. “(Bethia) longs to be a scholar herself but of course those doors are closed to her,” Brooks said. “She’s trying to do what she’s supposed to do, but it’s not sitting well with her.” During the period when the book is set, women could

Photo/McKenzie Images be arrested and prosecuted for being a “scold,” or criticizing a man in public. Men, on the other hand, could seek entry into institutions such as Harvard, where they were instructed in Latin in the classics of Greek and Roman poetry and drama. The novel details the parallel lives of Caleb and Bethia as they pursue the lives chosen for them by their families and society. “It’s a story of an intense friendship and the limits of that friendship in that time and place,” Brooks said. In crafting her fiction, Brooks said, she draws on her experiences as a foreign correspondent in war zones ranging from the Middle East to the Balkans and Somalia in the 1980s and early 1990s. Particularly, she said, she writes about the ways that people are affected by catastrophe, a theme that runs through her work. A native of Australia, Brooks began her journalism career with the Sydney Morning Herald, before winning a scholarship to the master’s journalism program at Columbia University in New York. She was hired by the Wall Street Journal, and first assigned as Australia correspondent, before moving on to cover conflicts in the Middle East, Bosnia and Africa. Being a wartime journalist, she said, is “the easiest reporting job there is. You don’t have to look for the story, you’re standing in it.” However, after being arrested while covering protests against a military dictatorship in

Nigeria — then being released after three days — she decided she wanted to stay in one place and begin raising a family. A year later, her first son was born, and she tried her hand at fiction. Brooks and her husband, writer Tony Horwitz, have two sons, Nathaniel, 16, and Bizuayehu, 10. The family lives in Martha’s Vineyard. Before speaking to the Literary Society, Brooks met with a group of juniors and seniors from Pacific Ridge School, explaining that she usually writes each day while her children are in school. Each of her books so far has started with a piece of information that she found compelling, and used it as a core to build her story and characters around. For example, her first novel, “Year of Wonders,” was about a village in England struck by the plague in the 1600s. Her interest in the topic was piqued by a plaque she saw about a “plague village” while traveling in the English countryside. Her job as a novelist, she said, is to make her readers interested in what happens next. “For me, the story’s the thing,” she said. For more information om Brooks, visit http://

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Local resident offers a variety of unique French-themed items at new shop ‘The French Nose’ BY KAREN BILLING Over the last couple of months, handwritten notes have appeared on the windows of the empty storefront next to Albertsons on Via de la Valle as a new shop took shape inside. The thoughtful bonjours and bon mots, such as “Home is the dearest spot on earth,” alluded to the French-themed store that would open on April 21, The French Nose. “People said they loved those little updates,” said owner Andrea Morgan. “One woman said ‘I’ve been following all your notes and I’m so glad you’re open.’ That was kind of fun.” An official sign is still to come although a handwritten one stays up on the door and a quick glance through the windows shows a store brimming with furniture, home goods, florals and “pretty things.” Lots of fleur-di-lis, Eiffel towers, French dress forms and toile. “Like the legendary French pig that can sniff out the secretly hidden, highly-prized truffle, we at the French Nose sniff out the very best of French-made products and Frenchinspired items throughout the world and bring them to you,” Morgan said. The store ranges from the whimsical, like a flying pig statue, to the one-of-a-kind find — a Sohmer baby grand piano from the early 1900s with an intricately carved wood body and keys made of real ivory. Morgan combs flea markets and estate sales for her vintage pieces, but also has lots of contemporary and new items from decorative pillows to roomy ceramic mugs for café au laits. “I’ve always had a love of French items, a love of design and décor,” said Morgan, who has lived in the Rancho Santa Fe area for 26 years. She has been a Francophile since she spent time at La Sorbonne in Paris in the 1970s, studying art history while working as an au pair and relies on her discerning nose to find the best items to fill her new store. The French Nose has come together in a dizzying threemonth time span, said Morgan. It wasn’t until the holiday season last year, she started thinking seriously about the possibility of opening her own store.

Andrea Morgan opened The French Nose on Via de la Valle on April 21. Photo/Karen Billing She had been working at Lo Lo Callisto in Del Mar Highlands but also had a background in real estate, design and business, designing a makeup kit that sold on QVC in the 1990s. A girlfriend offered to provide financial backing for The French Nose and on New Years Day 2013 she set out looking for the location. As Morgan frequently shopped at Albertsons, she saw that the storefront next door had been vacant for about a year. With its huge 40-foot tall window spaces in front, it was a perfect showcase for a furnishings store, she said. Since taking over the space, she painted the walls a Parisian blue and put in Venetian tile flooring and a faux fireplace. For each section of the store, she designed different patterns for the tile flooring — from herringbone tiles to hexagon — to denote a different area of the home.

Currently on display is a pair of vintage scroll metal chairs from the 1960s with black and white herringbone covers and a duo of leopard print French empire chairs that she scored at an estate sale in Beverly Hills. Morgan was “blessed” to find a full dining set at an estate sale — a 10-foot-long Avignon double pedestal dining table that pulls out to 14 feet with nine chairs, a bench and matching console and display case from the late 1800s. “Everything has its own little story,” Morgan said of the vintage and antique finds, giving a pair of lion statues a pat on the head. In addition to furniture, the store will also carry soaps and candles, linens, coffee table books, coffee, teas and chocolates — items Morgan said will make perfect gifts to be picked up in her very convenient location. Morgan hopes to hold a Grand Opening party in May. The store also does consignment items, offering 75 percent back to the consignee. For more information, call (858) 759-1761.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Too many questions need answers on proposed RSF Garden Club sale This letter was submitted to the RSF Garden Club board and to this newspaper for publication. Re: RSF Association plan to buy RSF Garden Club April 19, 2013 Covenant members recently received correspondence from the RSF Association regarding its proposal to purchase the Garden Club. Likewise, members of the Garden Club received a letter and documents from the club regarding this proposed sale. The Association sent property owners within 500 feet of the Garden Club a letter from the RSF Association regarding a Covenant modification affecting the Garden Club’s southern lot parcel seeking to change the current Class “A” Single Family Dwelling to Class “H” Public and Public and Semi Public Uses. A separate RSF Association Explanatory Letter will address the adjacent northern lot, which contains the Garden Club building. These proposed changes of land uses will affect the value of the property current owned by the RSF Garden Club. As a long-time member of both associations, I expressed my concerns about the proposed sale at the April 5 joint meeting. I have reviewed the RSF Garden Club bylaws (dated Jan. 1, 2010), the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (dated June 15, 2006), a Letter of Understanding (LOU) signed by the RSF Association President (dated Feb. 7, 2012) and the recent ballots from both parties to the proposed agreement. I have also requested the Garden Club board minutes from 2012-13. As a club member, I have not seen or been given a copy of the actual joint agreement executed by both the Association and the club. My other concerns are primarily related to the Garden Club and the “Talking Points” provided with the Club President’s letter dated April 10, 2013. As proposed, a Garden Club Endowment Fund will be set up at the RSF Foundation from 100 percent of the proceeds of the sale. There will be an Oversight Committee to oversee our endowment funds annual disbursements. The committee of five members, only two of which represent the Garden Club, are to decide how they will distribute our annual endowment fund proceeds. These funds are from the proceeds of the sale of the Garden Club property, the sole property asset of the Garden Club and should be distributed at our sole discretion for our 501c-3 charitable purposes. (See our bylaws Section ll B — The specific purpose of this corporation is to further the development of charitable horticultural and charitable conservation activities, both within and outside the community of Rancho Santa Fe.) The Garden Club has been donating funds to various groups, many of which are outside of the Covenant like Wounded Warriors, etc.; however, the wording in the “Talking Points” says our Endowment Fund annual distribution monies from the sale proceeds will be utilized solely for the benefit of the RSF Covenant community organizations, such as the RSF School, Historical Society, Garden Club, Library, Art Guild, Senior Center, Community Center and the RSF Association as determined by the Oversight Committee. Why should there be restrictions on who can receive these or any of our funds? Since when does the buyer of property tell the seller how to use the money earned from the Sale? Under the current terms of the sale, the Garden Club will be given “priority use” for 10 days per year for their programs and have the ability to request additional days as needed. What is meant by “priority use?” It is mentioned that beyond the annual use provided by the “Beneficial Use” Agreement, the Garden Club may schedule other events at the facility on the same basis and at the same cost (if any) as any other community organization. Since we have not seen the “Beneficial Use” Agreement, it is unclear whether there is a charge for this 10-day “priority use,” the other 22 days outlined under description “Recent Garden Club Usage” and/or for additional days as needed except to mention that this is in return for the restriction on the use of our endowment fund. The club is asking for only 22 days a year, or less that 10 percent on an annual basis leaving 333 days wide open for others to use/rent? A lease needs to be in place to insure our continued use of the Garden Club in perpetuity and/or some mutually agreed to renewable long-term arrangement must be established. The lease that is mentioned in the “Talking Points” is for the retail space in the basement currently used for our resale store. The lease rent, as stated, will be at market rates as established by appraisal, the proposed lease is for 10 years, renewable at the Garden Club’s option, at a rate of $40,000/year inclusive. The lease rate will be adjusted every five years, according to the CPI. In the event of default (or cancellation) of the lease by the Garden Club, the Association will have the option to offset the remainder of the lease against the endowment. The lease at $40,000/year for a basement windowless facility is at market rates? How can our Endowment funds intended for charitable uses be used as collateral for the lease? As a member, I mention these concerns to highlight the fact that this arrangement really needs more review. I have not been privy to any of the negotiations; however, I do have experience and have locally chaired several homeowners associations, charitable community organizations and public agencies over the years and am directly involved with property management. I also have many years experience with real estate property transactions. I am also still very concerned with the issues of conflict of interest with dual membership by many residents in both organizations and/or boards that need to be addressed as I stated at the April 5 joint meeting of the RSF Association and the Garden Club. Where is a signed actual Letter of Understanding (LOU) executed by both parties outlining the terms of the agreement? It has not been circulated to members of the Garden Club, so how can we make an evaluation on this important issue without ever seeing the documents outlining the terms of a mutual agreement? We need all of the details of the proposed transaction before any vote. As members of the Garden Club, we have sole responsibility to the Club to make the best deal possible for our 501c-3 organization. This is a big change in many ways and the Garden Club needs to step up and protect the best interests and assets of the club in this or any negotiation for its future. Again, there are way too many questions and details that need to be cleared up before there is any voting on this important issue. We need to vote NO on this current proposal until we are told and understand all aspects being proposed in this sale of the Garden Club’s property and its sole asset. Marion B.

continued from page 3 that their cities be represented, because of the impacts the fairgrounds has on their communities. Supervisor Ron Roberts said it was never his objective to gain control over the fairgrounds. “It was not our intent to control, rather it was our intent to have regional influence,” he said. “I think what’s before us today is a good start.” The issue of governance of the 340-acre fairgrounds — and the 65-acre horse park property to the east — came to the forefront in 2010 when former Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneg-


ger agreed to sell the property to the city of Del Mar for $120 million. The proposal generated intense opposition, including from the 22nd DAA, and Schwarzenegger’s successor, Jerry Brown, killed the deal. However, state officials have encouraged the county-22nd DAA partnership as a way of giving the local community a greater voice in running the fairgrounds. Adam Day, president of the 22nd DAA board, initiated the talks in an October letter to Supervisor Ron Roberts. Day has strongly supported the proposed partnership, saying that it will increase accountability and transparency in the fair-

grounds’ operation, and provide protections to fairgrounds employees, who are now state employees. The proposal now under discussion calls for allowing current workers to either remain on the state payroll, or become employees of the new joint powers authority, or JPA. New hires would work for the JPA. Day said after the meeting that the next step is to draft an agreement between the county and the 22nd DAA, which would ultimately have to be approved by the boards of both agencies, as well as by state officials.

with the locations or traffic patterns which creates the potential approval of an event route consisting of highly traveled roads or roads with abundant grade changes that pose safety concerns. “We’re the ones that house the best information,” Livoni said, noting getting the Association involved as soon as possible would be a benefit. While with the Tour de Cure the Association didn’t have the ideal amount of notice, RSF Patrol Chief Matt Wellhouser was able to work with the organizers to get a part of the course tweaked with a small window of notice, Originally the course had been on La Bajada, “the least preferable” and “most impactful” and Wellhouser was able to get a portion re-routed to El Camino Real and El Mirlo. RSF Association Vice President Anne Feighner noted that El Mirlo is still a dangerous route as there is no bike lane — which is the case with most Covenant roads,. Feighner said it will be helpful if the RSF Association can weigh in on the safest race routes.

As for adding non-voting seats to the new board for Del Mar, Solana Beach and San Diego, Day said Supervisor Dave Roberts’ comments were the first he’d heard of the suggestion. “I’m open to discussion,” he said. Del Mar Councilman Mosier said he and his council colleagues had considered the idea of “ex officio” seats. “It’s not my favorite option, but it’s better than no seat at the table,” Mosier said. He added that attorneys

WATER continued from page 1 million, a $1.5 million increase from the current year. A staff budget report lists three factors for the increase in operating costs: an expected increase of up to 12.2 percent in imported water costs, a drop in the availability of cheaper local water and costs for meter replacement and valve maintenance programs. For the past two years, the district has been able to meet about half of its water needs from its supply in Lake Hodges, reducing the need to buy imported water, according to the budget report on Thursday’s agenda. However, due to a dry winter this year, the district is projected

If necessary, he said, state legislation could be written to allow it. Del Mar still wants representation on the fairgrounds board, Mosier said. “We’re going to continue to press for it.”

that it will only be able to meet about 30 percent of its needs from local supplies in the coming budget year. That amount could drop as low as 15 percent, the report said. In addition to its operating budget, the district plans a capital improvement budget of $8.4 million, which includes replacing or upgrading district infrastructure such as pipes, valves and its treatment plant, as well as equipment and vehicles. While the district could cover the increase in water costs from a corresponding increase in revenue due to this year’s rate increase, the district would be unable to fully fund its capital improvement budget, said Jeanne Deaver, administrative services manager. Therefore, the budget

includes the $1 million transfer from a rate stabilization reserve fund. The district’s labor costs are budgeted at $6.1 million next year, a 1.59 increase from the current year, resulting from increases in health care costs, as well as a new labor agreement, said the report. The Santa Fe district serves a population of about 19,400 in Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Fairbanks Ranch. Its water supply system includes some 150 miles of pipeline. Following this month’s budget preview, the board will receive a full budget document at its meeting in May. A public hearing will be held on June 20, after which the board could vote to approve next year’s budget.

Old Worlds meet New World in symphonic concert

La Jolla Cultural Partners

FROM LJS&C REPORTS The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C) will perform three works that present vivid musical images of Asia, Europe and America, in a program themed “Old Worlds/New World,” May 4-5, at Mandeville Auditorium on UCSD campus. Music Director Steven Schick will lead the orchestra in Chou Wen-chung’s “Landscapes,” Richard Strauss’s virtuosic “Horn Concerto No. 2,” and Edgard Varèse’s “Amériques,” a work, written in 1927, that influenced Frank Zappa and a generation of rock artists. This will be the fifth concert of the 58th season, “Angle of Repose,” exploring themes inspired by Wallace Stegner’s Pulitzer Prizewinning novel of the same name. “This is a very personal concert for me,” Schick said. “I can say with no exaggeration that without Varèse, I would not be a musician today. His ‘Amériques,’ ‘Déserts,’ and most importantly ‘Ionisation,’ written in 1931 for 13 percussionists, were my guiding lights as a student.”

Nicolee Kuester will solo in Strauss’s ‘Horn Concerto No. 2.’ COURTESY PHOTO

If you go What: Old Worlds/New World, La Jolla Symphony & Chorus When: 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 4; 2 p.m. Sunday, May 5 Where: Mandeville Auditorium at UCSD Tickets: $15-$29 Box Office: (858) 5344637 Website: Schick noted the connections between the three composers on the program. A young Varèse, who had studied in Paris, moved to

Berlin to begin his musical career and found an unlikely ally in Richard Strauss, one of the most influential composers at the time. A few doors were opened, but eventually Varèse decided that the Old World had little to offer him and moved to America. Decades later, Varèse is the famous (and perhaps infamous) composer of some of the 20th century’s most inspired, powerful, and important music when a young Chinese composer and recent immigrant to America, Chou Wen-chung, seeks him out for composition lessons. “ ‘Landscapes’ was the composition Wen-chung was working on when he came to Varèse’s apartment to begin studying with him,” Schick said. “Landscapes,” first performed in 1953, is his bestknown composition. It is a concise piece of music in three movements, spanning eight minutes. Chou based each movement on a traditional Chinese melody, each in turn linked to a Chinese poem. Richard Strauss’ (1864–

Steven Schick conducts La Jolla Symphony orchestra. PHOTO/BILL DEAN 1949) father was one of the finest horn players of his time and a crucial influence on the composer’s abiding love for the instrument. Strauss finished “Horn Concerto No. 2 in E-flat Major” in 1942 at the age of 78, with W.W. II darkening the world around him. The opening Allegro begins with the horn soloist alone: the octave leap and flourish establish not only the virtuoso character of this music but also its essentially lyric nature. Horn player Nicolee Kuester solos. She was LJS&C’s 2011 Young Artists Competition first-place winner and is now principal

horn in the orchestra. Varèse (1883–1965) wrote “Amériques” between 1918 and 1922. It was one of the first works from the young French composer after moving to the U.S. and settling in New York City. Varèse intended the title of the work to symbolize “discoveries — new worlds on Earth, in the sky, or in the minds of men.” “Amériques” is scored for a gigantic orchestra, one that includes eight horns, six trumpets, five trombones, two harps, and nine percussionists, who play a total of 27 different instruments. Among these are

such unusual instruments as the lion’s roar and a siren, the latter a deep wailing siren as heard on New York City fire trucks, a characteristically “urban” sound to the composer. Varèse did not write in traditional form, and listeners should not expect thematic ideas to “develop.” The dynamic range is huge — from the barely-audible to ear-splitting intensity. Listeners will also be struck by the extraordinary writing for percussion in this 24-minute score, almost a world unto itself, full of strange new sounds and rhythms.

Seafood, service, seasonal selections shine at Sally’s BY KELLEY CARLSON rom the ocean floor and straight to its door, Sally’s Seafood on the Water serves fresh catch from the local docks. Located on the Manchester Grand Hyatt property with one of the largest downtown waterfront patios, the restaurant is conveniently just around the bend from the Chesapeake Fish Co., which has access to 90 vessels and processes seafood daily. “We want you to have the best quality, the best food you can get,” Chef-de-Cuisine Laura De Martin said. Sally’s offers California/Mediterraneanstyle cuisine in an upscale-casual environment that is suitable for most, whether it’s couples on dates or families from out of town. The upper-and-lower dining rooms are spacious with an industrial-yet-modern design. Large, vibrant, original paintings by artist Craig Kindel grace the walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows allow for plenty of sun by day. In the evening, the lights dim and candles glow atop classic marble tabletops. Servers constantly traverse the marble-andstone floor to check on guests and deliver dishes that are of high standards. “Nothing goes out that’s ‘OK’ — it’s perfect or it’s not (going out to the table),” De Martin said. The fare is made with sustainable, organic ingredients that are obtained as locally as possible; the menu changes seasonally in reflection of ingredient availability. As guests sit at the table and peruse the menu, they can nibble on warm slices of Lemon Thyme Ciabatta, served with sweet butter and a mixture of sea salt and pink peppercorns to sprinkle on top.


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

Sally’s Seafood on the Water’s Crab Cake The dining room features large windows with views of the marina. PHOTOS BY KELLEY CARLSON To further whet their appetites, there are starters such as the creamy Smoked Bay Scallop Chowder with black pepper creme fraiche, and Shiitake Chicken Spring Rolls that can be dipped in a cilantro sauce. There are also several types of salads, including California Greens, with long cucumber slices, chunks of tomato and a light lemonherb dressing. Sally’s has a variety of entrees — including meat, vegetarian, and gluten- and dairy-free — but naturally, seafood is among its specialties. There’s the homemade Dungeness Crab Pasta, a unique combination with oven-dried tomatoes, corn gremolata, soft shell crab and bottarga; the tender Pacific Ahi Tuna on a bed of purple mashed potatoes in miso-mustard sauce; and delicate Diver Scallops in a misomustard sauce with thyme roasted carrots and sautéed broccolini. A staff-recommended wine that will pair with pretty much anything on the menu is

The Four Graces Pinot Noir 2011 from Willamette Valley, Ore. The red wine is earthy, yet fruity. To close out the meal, there are a number of desserts. Among them are the sweet-andsalty Crème Fraiche Pana Cotta, topped with black bowfin caviar and salted caramel sauce; Creamsicle Gelato; and Banana Trifle, featuring layers of banana mousse, chocolate cake and caramelized banana. Children have two menus from which to choose: one designed by Alice Waters that consists of organic foods, and the other based on Sally’s entrees. Lunch and dinner are served daily, and breakfast is offered during weekends. For a special group dining experience, there’s a Chef’s Table next to the kitchen. Patrons can experience the sounds and sights of the chefs in action while dining from a five-course tasting menu that’s tailored to specifications with an optional wine pairing.

Those who are seeking a more laid-back setting can venture into the bar to catch the latest sports and news coverage on TV while nursing a local draft or a specialty cocktail, such as the carbonated Blueberry Mojito garnished with lime. But to truly get the essence of Sally’s, General Manager Chris Reid recommends sitting on the heated front patio for al fresco dining. The waterfront views are great for people watching, he said, and it’s dogfriendly. Live music from local bands nearby can be heard during the weekends, and as the weather warms, guests will also detect sounds from Summer Pops concerts at the nearby Embarcadero Marina Park. The patio is the perfect spot to nosh on Crab Cakes with tomato relish and avocado aioli, Reid said. He also suggests sampling the unusual Kazoo Roll, a mixture of salmon, mango, avocado, red-leaf lettuce and rice inside a soy wrap and topped with crushed pistachio.

Successful carbon offset program only part of local organization’s global conservation efforts BY CLAIRE HARLIN There’s a unique tropical forest along the Peruvian border called the Cazaderos in southwest Ecuador that’s home to numerous species found only in that ecosystem, including the highest concentration of endemic bird species in South America. It’s rainy for half the year and dry for the rest, making it the perfect climate to produce corn — a crop that’s boomed over the past decade since the U.S. government has been offering subsidies to increase its production for use in biofuels. That’s also part of the reason such forests have been greatly reduced, and the 19,317-acre Cazaderos, which is of major biodiversity importance and has luckily remained unharmed, is at the top of the world’s conservation list. But the Solana Beach community, in conjunction with a small grassroots conservation group started 15 years ago by longtime local resident Ivan Gayler, has played a major role in preserving the Cazaderos while offsetting its own carbon footprint. Since 2009, residents of Solana Beach alone have raised more than $24,000 to save about 500 acres of the rare deciduous forest. That equates to about 48,000 tons of carbon, considering the average person is estimated to use about 11 tons a year and there’s an estimated 100 tons provided per acre of forest, said Solana Beach City Councilmember Lesa Heebner. Heebner came up with the idea behind the carbon offset program after a moving speech by Gayler about his organization, the Del Mar-based Nature and Culture International (NCI). NCI has helped save more than 9 million acres of rainforest since Gayler, also known in the community for developing the Del Mar Plaza, founded the organization in 1997. “After hearing Ivan speak the first time, I was moved. Most people who were there were in tears,” said Heebner. “It just hit me that Solana Beach would be a great sister city. I wondered if we could buy acreage the size of our city.” After approaching Gayler with the idea right after his speech and then presenting the idea to the City Council, the city gave the carbon offset initiative two thumbs up and a campaign followed. While the city has successfully offset its estimated carbon footprint, it wants to keep raising money as a symbol that people continue to use more and more carbon, year af-

Charles Smith and Ivan Gayler present a recent lecture. Courtesy photo ter year, as rainforest continues to disintegrate. And Gayler said he thinks the city’s efforts thus far are nothing compared to what they could be. “It shows how much impact a community can have,” he said. “But that was not even a huge campaign … If we went door to door in Solana Beach we could conserve many times what we’ve already done. If we could get all the high school kids involved, we’d be shocked at how much we can conserve … It’s just a joy for this to happen so close to home.” Gayler, who has lived locally for 55 years, has employed conservation methods that set NCI apart from many much larger conservation groups and have astonished major players in the environmental realm for years. NCI board member Charles Smith, for example, used to do reforestation work with the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and when he met Gayler and learned of NCI’s efforts in 2007, he said he and Edward Wilson, who is often called the “father of sociobiology,” were “flabbergasted at how effective Ivan was being with NCI.” With a staff of only five in its Del Mar office but dozens more in its 11 offices throughout South America, NCI employs South American conservationists who know the ins and outs of buying land and using political influence to create reserves in place such as Peru, Columbia and Ecuador. That’s what sets NCI apart from many other U.S. conservation groups. “Our conservationists are leaders in their communities,” said Smith. “They can make deals and put in large reserves through political influence with no monetary cost … It would be impossible if you sent down Americans to do that. It’s their area and it’s they who have

to preserve it.” Smith grew up in Rancho Santa Fe and has been inspired to conserve land ever since seeing bulldozers take down the chaparral ecosystem he lived among during his childhood. Feeling powerless in that situation, he longed to conserve land and that was made possible when he sold his business, the first-ever online stock photo database, to Bill Gates in 1998 and began putting his dollars and efforts where he felt they counted. “Conservation is one of the great tasks of the 20th century,” said Smith. “We have problems in education, healthcare and poverty, and not that those aren’t important problems, but the problem of conservation has an end date on it. NCI will not be able to do what it does in 20 years … Conservation is not a problem that’s been around for hundreds of years, and we are running out of time.” For more information on the Solana Beach carbon offset project, visit and for more information on NCI, visit www.natureandculture. org.

Award-winning Encinitas Nursing and Rehabilitation Center considered ‘a family serving families’ BY DIANE Y. WELCH Three years ago when Joseph Franz took over as executive director of the Encinitas Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, located on Santa Fe Drive, it was after he’d learned the intricacies of compassionate skilled nursing care from the ground up. In so doing his intimate knowledge of how to provide quality care has been an asset that has had a winning effect on the center and its staff. On Franz’s watch, the five-star-rated center has received several national quality awards and was recently honored with the US News and World Report rating of a “Best Nursing Home.” As National Nurse’s Week approaches, May 6-12, and Nursing Home Week closely follows, it’s timely to celebrate the successes of the center. “This is the time of year that we spotlight our staff and thank them for the tremendous job they are doing,” said Franz. Half of the facility is devoted to rehabilitation. For example, a patient who has fallen and broken a hip will be admitted to stay a short time during recuperation. In contrast are those patients in the long-term stays, some who have no family, or they require so much medical care, or have Alzheimer’s disease or dementia-related disorders, that they are unable to stay at home, said Franz. There are over 100 staff members and several part-timers who provide around-theclock care. “We have one staff member for each bed in the facility,” Franz explained. Setting the center apart from other nursing and rehabilitation facilities is its out-patient license. “You don’t have to be a resident here to get award-winning therapy. Before you need to go to the hospital we can get you tuned up,” said Franz. The center prides itself on providing top-rated medical care, respect, a commitment to quality and comfort, and security for its residents. But it’s not only the medical care that is outstanding, the center’s activities program, headed up by Christy Floyd, is innovative and fun.

Sandra Poungded (Director of Nursing) and Executive Director Joseph Franz of the Encinitas Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Courtesy photo In partnership with St. James Academy, the center welcomes its students to visit one Friday each month. Each child is engaged in a variety of activities and art projects with their adopted “grandparent.” San Dieguito Academy high school students also earn community service hours by

volunteering doing one-on-one activities with residents. There is a karaoke singing happy hour program each week and once a month residents and their guests are treated to themed dinners. The last two years have had a theme of trips around the world, with dinners featuring specialties from far-flung places. The Director of Dietary Services, Danilo Lee, is famous for his “floral bouquets” crafted with vegetables that enhance the fancy dinners. This year’s dinner theme is murder mystery with staff acting out the murders and the residents having to guess who did it, said Franz. “One of the staff will be laying on the floor with ketchup smeared on them, supposedly stabbed in the back with scissors. It’s very entertaining.” Franz came to nursing via an administrative route. After his undergraduate years at Brigham Young University, studying business, he then earned an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. He worked in the Human Resources department of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for four years. Then 10 years ago he took a night job in a nursing home — as a nurse’s aid — to see what it was like. The learning experience was invaluable, said Franz. “I understood fully what it was like to be on the front lines.” When Franz got the position of executive director at Encinitas Nursing and Rehabilitation Center any story that the staff would tell him, he could match, he said. “And if I ask them to do anything they know that I’ve done it before. But I’m a better manager than I am a CNA, (Certified Nursing Assistant)” he joked. Despite the challenges brought on by the current changes in health care and the decline of the nuclear family, the center — considered a family serving families in a homelike setting — remains a vital source of compassionate, dignified care. “Nursing homes aren’t what you think they are, anymore!” Franz said.

A family wound reopens at Christmas in ‘Other Desert Cities’ BY DIANA SAENGER Family secrets can either tear a family apart or bring them closer together. That’s the theme of playwright Jon Robin Baitz’s 2011 “Other Desert Cities,” directed by Richard Seer and opening April 27 at the Old Globe Theatre. The play went to Broadway only months after it premiered and was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Wyeth’s are a well-to-do couple in Palm Springs excited that their children are coming home for Christmas. After a few days of tennis and humorous conversation, their joy of being together begins to unravel.

Her younger brother (Andy Bean) is a reality show producer; her dad a former movie actor turned politician; and her mother (Polly-Kanids) a 1960’s-era comedy writer turned socialite. Brooke’s sister, Silda, (Robin Pearson Rose), freshly out of rehab, is also at home for a visit. Revelations in Brooke’s memoir changes the dynamics of the family, especially for her dad. “They’ve been very close historically,” Foxworth said. “But she has a memory of her dad with the older son that she writes about negatively in her book. It’s a disastrous slap in the face to her father because he’s been very caring of her.” The family’s politics also fuels the gathering. Movie actor dad became involved

RSF Senior Center: Calling all literature lovers; Navigating our healthcare system BY TERRIE LITWIN, RSF SENIOR CENTER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Calling all literature lovers! Don’t miss Garrett Chaffin-Quiray’s “Writer’s Talk.” Each session includes a conversation about a particular writer, and one of their more critically-acclaimed stories, followed by a writing workshop (optional) for those interested in crafting their own stories. Classes meet the first Friday of each month, from 10 a.m. until noon, (Friday, May 3, Friday, June 7, and Friday, July 5). Terrie Litwin Navigating Our Healthcare System Anyone who has had a need to obtain healthcare or long-term care for themselves or a family member knows how difficult it can be to explore the options available and get answers to their questions. With a multitude of providers and services, seniors are often overwhelmed with choices and have difficulty finding appropriate care. Important decisions are often made in a crisis when there is an inadequate amount of time to fully understand and explore resources. Our healthcare system is complicated and can be difficult to navigate. The long-term care system is complex and constantly changing. Understanding the terminology used and finding out which services you are eligible for is both challenging and time consuming. Whether you are caring for a loved one or planning for your own future needs, you can benefit from the experience of knowledgeable professionals who work within these systems. Please join us at the Senior Center on Wednesday, May 8, at 10 a.m. for “Your Health, Your Choice: Navigating our Healthcare System.” Chris Knutson, RN, MSN will present information on topics including: current changes in our healthcare system, the continuum of care, advanced care planning, and the role of the physician and the medical team. Other topics include HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act, 1996), communication and advocacy, and a partnership approach for healthcare decision making. Chris has worked in the healthcare field focusing on Advanced Care Planning for long-term healthcare needs for more than 40 years. She has a diverse nursing background in home health, residential care, palliative care programs and hospice services. She provides education and outreach to patients and families about how to navigate and advocate in our complex healthcare system. As a respresentative of North Coast Hospice, she teaches individuals how to empower themselves with knowledge so they can learn to speak up for themselves, make informed choices about their healthcare needs, and become “partner’s in care” with their healthcare providers.

San Dieguito Union High School District Teacher of the Year happily comes full circle to teach at Earl WarBY KAREN BILLING The San Dieguito Union School District (SDUHSD) Teacher of the Year Samantha Greenstein truly feels like the district is her home. Her father has been a teacher in the district since before she was born; Samantha served as the Torrey Pines High School football team water girl at age 7; she attended SDUHSD’s Oak Crest and La Costa Canyon schools; and has now come full circle to teach physical science at Earl Warren Middle School for the last six years. “I was so inspired by the teachers I had,â€? Samantha said of wanting to come back to the district she grew up in to teach. “I received e-mails from former teachers when I was named Teacher of the Year. My high school biology teacher said that he couldn’t imagine a better ambassador for our district. For people who believed in me when I was in high school to still believe in me and think I have something valuable to say is really inspiring.â€? Samantha found out about the honor earlier this month with a visit from SDUHSD Superintendent Ken Noah. Noah came with a bouquet of flowers, laughingly telling the school board at its April 4 meeting that many of the students mistakenly thought he was coming to propose. Samantha’s extremely proud father Simeon Greenstein, who teaches social science at Torrey Pines High, was also in attendance. Samantha was surprised and a bit humbled by the honor. “I feel like I’m getting paid to do my dream job as it is,â€? Samantha said of working in beautiful Solana Beach — where they can have surf and skate PE. She also said she loves working with amazing families, dedicated staff and great students. “That’s all reward enough. ‌Teachers are intrinsically motivated, all we want is for our students to learn and grow so to be recognized is a little bit weird.â€? After graduating from La Costa Canyon, Greenstein went to Occidental College for her undergraduate degree and earned her teaching credential at UCLA. She taught for two years in Los Angeles before making her way back to her home district. Science is a subject that Greenstein always liked but she

San Dieguito Union High School District Teacher of the Year Samantha Greenstein, of Earl Warren Middle School, with her father, Torrey Pines High teacher Simeon Greenstein. Courtesy photo admits it wasn’t always an easy subject as a student. She challenged herself by majoring in science in college. “I liked the idea of having a lab to go to and engaging with the subject instead of just going to a lecture,� Greenstein said. As a teacher, she went

into the science field as it gave her the ability to plan those really hands-on lessons that require her students to engage with the subject matter, problem solve, collaborate. She has

the ability to make the learning experience fun. One fun activity her students do in her lab every year is an aluminum foil boat contest in which they try to build a boat that can hold the most pennies as possible without sinking, competing against their fellow students. At the end of every year, her students launch model rockets out on the field — another crowd pleaser. Samantha is going with the flow of how education is changing and how much of a role technology now plays in the classroom. Thanks to generous donations from the Earl Warren Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), she now has Chromebook laptops to use in her lab. “I’ve been encouraging my students to bring their own devices so I integrate technology a lot more in my classroom,� Samantha said. Her students have been building websites, creating videos and presentations about what they have learned this year. Using those tools helps her students build the skills they will need in high school and to be competitive in the job world. Samantha said she’s very grateful for the parent support she has. “I never imagined the community could be so supportive,� Samantha said. At a time when school budgets are stretched thin, she said it’s nice to see that the parents are so willing to step up and get teachers what they need. Samantha said she really enjoys teaching middle school age students as they are right in the midst of forming their identities. She likes being there for them as they go through different experiences and as they make decisions for themselves. “They’re trying to figure out who they are, what’s important to them and what their values are. To be a part of that process is really rewarding,� Samantha said. “To see them grow and help them reflect on who they want to be, it’s cool to be involved with that.�

HUNT SLONEM with his first solo exhibition in San Diego:

“BUTTERFLIES & REBIRTH” Sublimely decorative yet deeply spiritual, Hunt Slonem’s work is filled with light and color, with exotic birds, animals, saints, and Hollywood stars. His art celebrates the glory of life while underlining the threats that our civilization poses to the natural world. Slonem’s canvases emphasize an aesthetic of ocular activity; the viewer’s eye is set in almost constant motion, flicking about to take in the entire rectangle. The butterflies themselves come into focus as his central subject only after the few seconds it takes to apprehend the whole painting. They are rarely in sharp focus; their shapes are somewhat misted and often repeated, so as to create a pattern which itself must be uncoded. Again, this all happens in only a few seconds, before the creatures can be given individuation and appreciated as belonging to a distinct species. In all of Slonem’s work, after one has studied it for a time, there is seriousness about painting. The various devices that divide the space, render it shallow, thus keeping the work coherent in its own terms, adds up to a consistent investigation of post- cubist abstraction. By varying the moods and techniques of his work in fresh and exciting ways, Hunt Slonem creates a beautiful work that continually gives joy and surprise.

EXHIBITION: June 8 - July 8, 2013 Opening Reception: Saturday, June 8 · 6-9 pm

Hunt Slonem was born in Kittery, Maine in 1951. His fascination with exotica imprinted during his childhood in Hawaii and experience as a foreign exchange student in Managua, Nicaragua. Since 1977, Slonem has had over 250 solo exhibitions at prestigious galleries. Museums both domestic and international have collected his work, among them The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Slonem lives and works in New York City in his legendary loft which houses an aviary for his 70 exotic birds. The studio is a work of art itself, a lush and sensuous environment, filled with not only birds and plants, but also a collection of Baroque and Neo-Gothic furniture, Blenko glass and brilliantly hued rooms that house a dazzling array of paintings in period frames. He also owns a Victorian mansion in Hudson, New York and two plantation homes in Louisiana.

No rhyme or raisin: National wrinkled grape day is April 30 The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Each year nature’s perfect “candy,” raisins, are celebrated with a pair of national holidays: National Raisin Day on April 30 and National Raisin Week, which kicks off May 1. As a child I was deprived of this sweet, nutrientpacked treat, as raisins were then maligned for causing cavities (and my mouth was full of them). Times they are a-changin,’ and this precious little package is now celebrated. Here’s why. Nothing new under the sun Raisins were discovered serendipitously in ancient times (circa 1400 B.C.) when farmers stumbled upon grapes shriveling on a vine. Hundreds of years later vine-

yards were developed and cultivators in southern Spain were producing the finest Muscat raisins. Meanwhile, the Greeks were growing tiny, seedless currants. During the 18th century Spanish missionaries living in Mexico (also adept viticulturists) came to California to teach farmers how to grow grapes for wine production. In the late 1800s California’s first raisin crop was produced as a result of a fluky heat wave scorching the Joaquin Valley grapes before harvest (most dried on the vine before the farmers could pick them). Soon after, a Scottish immigrant, William Thompson, began growing a seedless grape variety that he found ideal candidates for raisins. These events launched California as a commercial blockbuster for raisin production, the majority made from Thompson seedless grapes. Raisin rewards These high-fiber, glutenfree, energy powerhouses are rife with iron to pump up red blood cell formation to prevent or treat anemia, as well as stress-relieving B-complex vitamins and potassium and magnesium to neutralize acid attacks. Phenolic phytonutrients in raisins put out fever

The seedy side of raisins One word of caution: some raisins (especially golden varieties) are treated with sulfur dioxide, which could cause a reaction to those with asthma or sulfur sensitivities. Standing advice: read labels carefully. fires by fighting viral and bacterial infections, while the Boron in raisins builds bones and absorbs calcium to prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis, and Vitamin A and Beta Carotene boost eye health and ward off age-related ocular diseases. Raisins also contain the mighty resveratrol (although in lesser concentrations than fresh grapes), a powerful antioxidant phytochemical that has been found to lessen stroke risks, lower blood cholesterol levels, and have a protective effect against heart disease and certain cancers. Finally, those sexy little morsels are nature’s Viagra, igniting the libidinal fires with Argenine, an amino acid that tinkers with the romantic wiring in the brain. In India an age-old custom on nuptial night includes the bride and groom sharing a potion of boiled milk with raisins and saffron for fortification, amongst other benefits.

Heard it through the grapevine • California grows half of the global raisin supply, and 95 percent of the U.S. supply. • The etymological root of the word “raisin” comes from the Latin “racemus,” meaning “a cluster of grapes or berries.” • It takes four pounds of fresh grapes to yield a single pound of raisins. • A grape basks in the sun for two to three weeks to morph into a raisin. • Raisins comprise 30 percent of California’s grape production, snagging second place only to wine. • Ancient Roman physicians lauded raisins for their miraculous curative powers, from alleviating mushroom poisoning to putting the skids on aging. The revered raisin transformed into barter currency (two jars traded for one slave).

Sweet and spicy rum and raisin sauce 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1/2 cup agave syrup 1 tablespoon sweet butter 1/4 cup dark rum 1/4 cup each dark and golden raisins 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon Cayenne pepper to taste (optional) In a small saucepan on medium heat combine sugar and syrup until sugar has melted. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients, stirring until butter has melted. Serve warm over anything you desire.

Something to smile about No longer the evil tooth monster, raisins on the contrary have been found to actually prevent tooth decay thanks to the presence of a phytochemical called oleanolic acid, a mighty warrior against the bacteria responsible for causing cavities and gum disease. In fact, it is the stickiness in raisins that provides an added protective oomph giving the oleanolic acid more staying power. Also, loaded with calcium, raisins strengthen teeth and enamel. So go ahead, pop a handful of plump, dark Thompsons, golden Sultanas

(dried white grapes) or currants (dried red grapes), or toss them in your oatmeal, granola, muffins, pancakes, scones, zucchini and carrot cakes, baked apples or apple strudel. Whip up a Mediterranean quinoa tabouli with dried apricots and raisins, a rice pilaf, egg noodle, raisin and ricotta casserole, sweet and sour cabbage rolls, rice and raisin pudding or this blissfully spicy rum and raisin sauce to enliven everything from ice cream to chicken, pork and vegetarian dishes.

Rancho Santa Fe Review

Your Family Matters: Talking to kids about terrorism BY DR. KEITH KANNER The recent senseless bombing at the end of the infamous Boston Marathon has now forced parents to go to work assuring their children that ” everything is going to be OK.” After all, Dr. Keith Kanner the role of a parent is to secure and protect their children. But how do you do that from senseless terrorist attacks? Whether it’s a terrorist act, an earthquake, a flood, a fire, a death, or any other trauma, the message sent to children is that bad things do happen, but not as often as they fear. In other words, the first teaching point for the parent is “reality,” not “hysteria.” The target children who will be most effected when a crisis hits are the 4to-9-year-olds. They are already in the normal fear zone ( i.e. the dark, noises, monsters, etc .), so, add on a bombing and all emergency mental lights go off in their brains. But, the truth is, they don’t and won’t happen every day and the chances of being a victim to one of these awful events is still statistically small. Second. Educate your children that when these traumas or disasters happen, we come together as a nation and figure out how to make things even safer. It is safe to say that the Boston bombing will certainly lead to greater security in public events. Third, emphasizing empathy for the victims

helps your child focus on the need to help others who were less fortunate. Fourth, assure them that you will protect them directly – statements like “we will never let anything or anyone hurt you” immediately sends relief to your child. You may have to say it a bunch of times, but it will sink in. Fifth. Keep them on track. Letting your child regress by not going to school, sleep in your bed, or hide in a closet, will only make them feel worse. When they witness that their day is safe, they will recover faster. Finally, and most importantly, calm yourself down. Refrain from watching too many news shows covering the event. It’s not good for you or your kids to replay disaster and meanness. The unfortunate-yettrue result of disasters is that it does make us stronger. Without being tested, technology and better ways of dealing with life as we know it would not be possible. Dr. Kanner is a board certified clinical child, adolescent and adult psychoanalyst. He is also the host of Your Family Matters which is a media brand broadcasting on TV, radio, and the Internet. Locally, Dr. Kanner and Your Family Matters is part of San Diego 6’s San Diego Living Show on Friday mornings, while Your Family Matters Radio is broadcasted through UT Radio & UT-TV where Dr. Kanner is also part of the news team as the Mental Health Host. His book with the same name ( “Your Family Matters — Solutions to Common Family Dilemmas” ) recently won the Mother’s Choice Gold Award for excellence in parenting literature.

The battle against breast cancer: RSF’s Lili Myers’ story continues By Lili Myers Things happen to us in life which reach deep into our heart and grab us at the most unexpected moments. [A few days ago], my husband and I were running around doing erLili Myers rands. It was a beautiful severe-clear-skies day, flowers were blooming everywhere, birds were singing and I had just finished having a conversation with him about how happy I am to be alive, and how happy I am to be his wife. As I am driving, I am a little distracted by all the beauty that surrounds me. We pull into the inside left-turning lane and the left-turning arrow turns red, so we stop. A car pulls up next to us very slowly, the driver smiles at us and continues stopping a few feet ahead. My husband and I look at each other and wonder if this woman thinks she knows us. Maybe she knows me from tennis? I don’t recognize her, I haven’t been playing league much these past months, maybe she has me confused with someone else? Did I, in my distracted moment, cut her off while driving? Did I do something stupid, hence the funny look? Suddenly, she puts her car in reverse and is now next to us on our passenger side, rolls her window down, so my husband rolls his window down and we wait for what seemed like an eternity. With a strange sort of smile she asks me where did I get the sign

in the back of my car (it is a large white square with a pink ribbon and it says “Fight Like A Girl”). I went on to explain that it was given to me about six years ago and I really don’t know where they got it. She takes her sunglasses off, starts crying and tells us that she has been just diagnosed with breast cancer. We suddenly have this desperate feeling of time rushing by. My husband in a very loving and caring tone tells her “There is light at the end of the tunnel kiddo, take it one day at a time, you can do this.” Then he points at me and tells her that I am a seven-year survivor. As he is talking with her, I am fumbling through my purse looking for one of my business cards. I ask my husband to hand it to her and I ask her to contact me. She takes the card, apologizes for crying, we try to reassure her, she thanks us, the light changes and off she goes. As we made the left turn, I wanted to follow her, and find her. There was this desperate feeling of wanting to help. I wanted to talk with her and try to answer any questions she might have. I wish I could help her navigate through this difficult roller coaster. I wanted to do something. It was at this point we realized that we had no idea what her car looked like, or what she looked like. We only recognized her tears. We only knew that she was desperately hurting, she was scared and she needed someone to hold her. I am all too familiar with those emotions. The hope is that she kept my card and will email me. I hope I can be of help.

Ask the Plastic Surgeons By Wendell Smoot, MD, Reza Sadrian, MD, Carol Hollan, MD and John Smoot, MD Q. In anticipation of the summer swimsuit season, I’m wondering what I can do to remedy the excess weight around my stomach. Do you have any recommendations? A. This time of year we receive an increase in inquiries regarding this condition, in advance of summer. For women, it’s the desire to reduce fat in the abdominal region, or “belly fat� and for men, it’s the unsightly appearance of what’s commonly referred to as “love handles� around the mid-section or a “beer belly.� The abdominal region is often the most stubborn section of the physique regarding improvement, but we find through our consultations that there are a variety of options to contemplate. First and foremost, consider your lifestyle habits. Regular alcohol consumption can lead to an excess bulge around the middle; alcohol contains a large amount of sugar that is delivered directly to the stomach region, and prohibits one from burning all other fat until the alcohol has been processed. Cutting back on sugar-laden desserts and snacks (such as ice cream and chocolate) can also be beneficial. Additionally, The Mayo Clinic reports that the natural aging process can lead to an increase in belly fat. It’s been scientifically proven that as the body ages, muscles that become more sedentary over time will cause the body to burn fewer calories. Even though you may be consuming an equivalent number of calories you did when you were younger, weight gain will still occur faster around your mid-section as you age. If you don’t consume excess amounts of alcohol or sweets on a daily basis, you watch carefully the number of calories you consume regularly and you exercise on a frequent basis but still experience extra weight around your mid-section, you may want to opt for a plastic surgery procedure. Liposuction is specifically designed for individuals who have stubborn pockets of fat that have accumulated in the thighs, buttocks or stomach region. Liposuction does not remove the visceral fat that surrounds organs and which may cause significant health problems, so adhering to a healthy lifestyle

International Bipolar Foundation to hold ‘Behind the Mask; Proud as a Peacock Gala’ Look around you. One in four people is touched by a mental illness – 450 million worldwide. It is very likely that you, your family or one of your colleagues has experienced the stigma and misunderstanding of mental illness. That is the goal of International Bipolar Foundation’s 2013 Gala, “Behind the Mask; Proud as a Peacock Gala,� which will be held at the beautiful Estancia Hotel and Spa in La Jolla on Saturday, May 11, at 6 p.m. at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa 9700 North Torrey Pines Road La Jolla. According to Dr. Thomas Insel, Director of the National Institute for Mental Health, “psychiatry is the only part of medicine — where there is actually greater stigma for receiving treatment for these illnesses than for having them.� International Bipolar Foundation is going to change that – and it is asking for your help. Stigma – although powerful – does not have to be inevitable. International Bipolar Foundation (IBF), founded here in San Diego by four mothers with children who have bipolar disorder, is dedicated to educating the public and erasing the devastating stigma and isolation, thereby breaking down obstacles to treatment, promoting recovery, and decreasing isolation and emotional pain. IBF invites you to help them remove the mask, so that their family members, neighbors, co-workers and friends can take off their own masks and strut with pride instead of shame. Gala Co- Chairs: Robin Nordhoff and Maggie Watkins. Gala Committee: Susan Blanchard, Kate Collier, Ashley Jacobs, Katherine Kennedy, Marina Pastor, Lauree Sabha, Camille Sobrian Saltman, Lisa Stennes, Debbie Torbati, Fiona Tudor, Muffy Walker, Lonna Williams and Julie Meier Wright.

Next International Bipolar Foundation lecture on ‘Meditation, Medication and Magic’ is May 9 The International Bipolar Foundation will hold its free monthly mental health lecture May 9 with Kimberly Knox on “Meditation, Medication and Magic.” What if you had a quick and precise way to size yourself up mentally, emotionally and physically throughout the day? What if you could have reminders to take your medications and supplements? And what if you could accurately chart all of this information – including how you were feeling, sleeping and meditating for your personal reflection, or to share with your physician or therapist? These will be the topics that Knox will cover at the May lecture. Knox is a multidisciplinary inventor and, of note, a patient with Bipolar I. She was educated around the world, completing her bachelor’s degree in philosophy of art and science at the Union Institute & University. Her patented inventions include US6476069, “Compositions for creating embolic agents and uses thereof” (11 patents), and (US61757086 pat. Pending) Moodwatch, among other notable contributions in chemistry, biofluid mechanics and biomechanical engineering, including awards and publications.

De Anza DAR Celebrates 79th Anniversary The De Anza Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) celebrated its 79th anniversary on April 6 at Lomas Santa Fe Country Club with a luncheon meeting, cake and informative talks. Members were encouraged to dress in period costumes, which ranged from former Regent Jody Bray’s 1920s flapper costume to 1st Vice Regent Marti Meiner’s elaborate and historically-accurate 1776 vintage outfit. Attendees enjoyed presentations on conservation, Native Americans, and several hilarious jokes about grandchildren. Prospective member Polly Martin displayed her greatgrandmother’s DAR certificate dated 1917. A short biography of Margaret Haughey, known as the “Angel of the Delta,” preceded lunch. Her portrait adorned the De Anza chapter’s anniversary cake. Former Regent Francie Spears gave an enlightening speech on Thomas Jefferson’s prodigious gardening and culinary endeavors. De Anza Daughters and guests enjoyed Jefferson trivia, from his 23 varieties of garden peas to his irreverent attitude toward seating guests and dignitaries in a first-come, first-seated pell-mell fashion. Cheri Myron was inducted as a new member into the De Anza Chapter DAR. Her patriot ancestor, Captain Samuel Fitz Randolph, served in the Second Regiment, New Jersey militia in the American Revolution. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. De Anza Chapter was founded in 1934 and is named for Juan Bautista de Anza, an early explorer of California. Members live in Rancho Santa Fe, North County coastal communities and other nearby areas. A woman over 18 years is eligible for membership who can prove direct lineage from a patriot who gave service during the American Revolution. For further information visit: http://www.

The Caregivers’ Journey: You Need to Give It a Rest Summer Extended Studies Program BY MARSHA KAY SEFF

Caring for your parents is tough enough under any circumstances. Without a good night’s sleep, caregiving is an almost impossible task. Being sleep-deprived not only drains energy but can drastically affect your health, mood and daily functioning. Adequate rest is vital to being able to handle your life, your family’s and your parents’. Doctors say there are several things you can do to improve your sleep. Tell that to my “sleep center,” which never worked very well and went on permanent disability while I was caring for my parents. But some of these tips from healthcare professionals might help and certainly can’t hurt: •The first step is discussing the issue with your physician. Certain medical conditions, such as chronic pain, breathing difficulties, frequent urination, reflux disease and an overactive thyroid, can lead to insomnia. Sleep testing and sleep aids might help alleviate underlying causes of insomnia. •Try to reduce stress. I know, easier said than done. But stress is one of the biggest obstacles to sleep. Exercise, even a 10-minute daily walk, will help. Exercise promotes better sleep, reduces tension and depression and increases energy and alertness. •If you’re still having trouble managing stress, talk with a therapist. Once when I felt overwhelmed with my parents’ care, I sought out a therapist. She pointed out all the choices that I didn’t even realize I had as a caregiver, and this was enough to relieve my mind – a little. •Limit naps, unless that’s the only time you can steal for yourself. If you choose to nap, it’s best to limit it to 10 to 30 minutes. •Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even on weekends, holidays and days off. •Avoid eating too much late in the evening. A heavy meal or snack before bedtime can cause heartburn and keep you up. •Also avoid drinking too much before bed, as this can increase trips to the bathroom.

•Don’t count on a glass of wine, a cigarette or hot chocolate to do the trick. Caffeine and nicotine are the last things you need late in the day. Avoid caffeine after 2 p.m. •Some people believe a glass of warm milk aids relaxation; others say a small bowl of oatmeal might help. Then, there’s the banana-believers that point out potassium and magnesium relax muscles and produce serotonin and Marsha Kay Seff melatonin. I won’t swear to any of this but, hey, if it works… •Check side effects of medications, especially those for allergies, colds and high blood pressure, as some can disrupt sleep. •Unwind tight muscles before sleep with a warm bath or shower and gentle upper-body stretches. •Don’t watch TV, study or use your computer in bed. Make sure your bedroom is dark, quiet and comfortable and climb into bed when you’re ready for sleep. •Make a to-do list before turning in if you find yourself waking in the middle of the night worrying about all you have to accomplish the next day. •Realize you can’t do everything yourself. Ask family and friends for respite, to help with meals, chores and healthcare needs. I wish I’d hired a care manager or inhome care company for at least a few hours of help a week. With little to no sleep, family caregivers can get stuck in a wearisome cycle of exhaustion, mental fog, irritability and depression, which ends up affecting the quality of care they give their loved ones. Without adequate rest, you risk your own health and face caregiver burnout. So take your sleep seriously.

The Investigator

Burglary and Home Invasion This column, written by investigator RW “Pete” Peterson, discusses issues and cases related to investigations and investigative services.

BY RW “PETE” PETERSON Home invasion robberies are very rare in this country, but it only takes once to change someone’s life. One of our clients was the victim of a home invasion robbery. After the incident, Peterson InvestigaRW “Pete” Peterson tive was asked to implement numerous security improvements and to build a safe room. This room was equipped with elaborate security features, weapons and back-up communications that would function in the event of an electric grid shutdown or other major disaster. Burglary is very common and most often is committed by amateurs or teenagers who want to emulate a movie jewel thief, etc. Many times it is someone who had access to the property as a repairman or service person. Most burglars are not Rhodes Scholars and are easily dissuaded by fairly simple measures. If they do “case” your home it will probably be to a limited extent. Having conducted a lot of surveillance and reconnaissance over the years we have developed a good feeling for what an intruder dislikes. Motion detector lights: Constant lighting is OK but an intruder can usually work their way around it and it doesn’t have the startle factor that motion lights produce. Constant lighting is also expensive. Properly placed motion lights that are varied in response are very disturbing to a burglar. Most burglars are only a few heartbeats from bolting from the premises. Motion detector lights can also alert the home owner or a neighbor. You can install solar lights and defray wiring and installation costs Barking dog: A barking dog may be the number one nemesis of an intruder. The importance of a dog cannot be over emphasized. An electronic barking dog alarm properly deployed, can also be very effective. If you are away from the home it can alert a neighbor.

Social media: Do not advertise your travel plans or activities to the world. Very limited personal information is wise when using the internet and social media. Even work information can give someone access to your schedule, etc. Electronic openers: Try to limit the information in your vehicle if service and repair people have access to it. Many burglaries have been perpetrated by people who had access to the gate or garage remote control in the vehicle and used the registration information in the car to locate the home. We’ve seen cases where the vehicle was being serviced and the owner went shopping or to an appointment and someone from the repair facility went to the home and cleaned it out. Also, the remote control code or setting can be cloned or copied on some units. Trees and shrubs: Survey your house at night and determine which bushes and shrubs would make it easier for a burglar to hide by windows and doors. Trim accordingly. Locks: Install good deadbolt locks and then don’t forget to use them. People in remote, gated or relatively secure settings often become very lax about locking doors and windows and setting alarms. Timers: Timers on interior lights and the TV can be effective. There are also simulated TV gadgets available. Blinds and drapes: “Out of sight out of mind.” Don’t make it easy for a burglar to window shop. Alarm systems: The options are endless but with the advent of the recent, good wireless systems you don’t have to take out a second mortgage to equip your home with a decent and reliable system. The newer systems can be installed by a handy person and wiring and installation costs can be avoided. Of course, always have mail picked up if you’re going to be away and alert neighbors and the local Sheriff’s Department. There are many other recommendations that can be made but you have to weigh the costs and what your comfort level is. Don’t wait until you are burglarized to take steps. RW “Pete” Peterson has operated his investigative firm for 30-plus years. He can be reached at 760-443-0575; www.RWPeterson. com.
