BY KAREN BILLING Kim Eggleston and Ann Boon have been elected to the Rancho Santa Fe Association Board of Directors, marking the end of one of the most hotly contested elections in Covenant history. Eggleston received the most votes in the election with 823 and Boon received 819. Candidate Dominick Addario received 740 votes

and Susan Callahan received 689. “Kim and I are both very happy with the results, especially the huge voter turnout,” said Boon, who was re-elected to the board. “It shows that people throughout the community are engaged and interested in participating in the governance of Rancho Santa Fe. Kim and I look forward to

rolling up our sleeves and working not only with the members of the board but with all the members of the community as well. The Association board has many projects on the table and Kim and I want to focus on the positive things we can all do together. “I also think that Dr. Addario and Mrs. Callahan should be thanked for their

BY KAREN BILLING The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe is considering a new step-down housing project for the village, giving people the opportunity to live in a smaller home or downsize without giving up the Ranch lifestyle. The Rancho Santa Fe Association board heard The Inn’s proposal as an informational item at its June 5 meeting and showed support for the project. John Kratzer, president and CEO of JMI Realty, which owns The Inn, said they are proposing adding three new neighborhoods to

the 21 acres they own in the village. Of their existing 99 units, they would demolish 14 and add 30 for a total of 115 units, a net gain of 16. Kratzer said that while the project does represent some densification of the village, it is modest and the new neighborhoods will still be relatively low density. “We really do view The Inn as the foundation or cornerstone in the village of Rancho Santa Fe,” Kratzer said. “Whatever we do over there we want to be responsive to the needs of the See HOUSING, page 28

BY KAREN BILLING Rancho Santa Fe had a close call last month as the Bernardo Fire threatened the community, but fortunately its flames did not reach any homes. With the images of smoke-filled skies and fireravaged canyons fresh in everyone’s minds, Rancho Santa Fe Fire District Chief Tony Michel said he wants to take advantage of the community’s hyper-awareness to make sure everyone is fully prepared for fire season. Michel stopped by the Rancho Santa Fe Association’s June 5 board meeting with some district staff to share an update about the fire and fire

prevention efforts. “We want to be diligent that we stay fire safe throughout the fire season,” Michel said. “I don’t believe that just because we had a fire, we’re safer.” Michel said the fire was a direct result of a prolonged drought in Southern California, enhanced by the unseasonably strong Santa Ana winds and “unprecedented” amounts of dry fuels in the area. “The fuel moisture is at critical levels,” Michel said, stating that the 60 percent moisture level is not usually See FIRE, page 28

RSF School District adopts math pathway BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe School District June 5 approved the math pathway of courses its students will go through to get ready for the next level. The math pathway will offer advanced math in third, fourth and fifth

grade and at the middle school level, sixth grade math, advanced sixth grade math and math seven and eight. “I feel like the whole math program has taken a step up,” said Assistant Superintendent Cindy Schaub.

Schaub has worked with the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD), which the district feeds into for 9-12 math courses. Together they determined which middle school courses See MATH, page 28

‘Flash report’ in works for Association finances BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe Association is developing a new “flash report”, which is a new way to see “in real time from a bird’s eye view” where the Association stands financially on a monthly basis.

RSF Association President Philip Wilkinson said the flash report is a great step forward as they continue the process of introducing best practices to effectively run the business of the Association. Fred Wasserman, a fi-

nance committee member, gave the board an overview of all the flash report entails — including expenses such as legal and litigation, home sales numbers, expenses of the Community See FLASH, page 28

Outgoing RSF Education Foundation President Lynn Frank recognized BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe School Board June 5 honored outgoing RSF Education Foundation President Lynn Frank for her dedicated service to the children at the school. Superintendent Lindy Delaney presented Frank with a glass bowl inscribed with one of Frank’s favorite quotes from Albert Einstein: “Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think.” Frank thanked all the contributors who have volunteered time and given money to the foundation, which raised $1.3 million for the district this year to further enhance students’ learning. Next year’s president will be Alexia Bregman.

BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe Association board approved a temporary construction easement for the Santa Fe Irrigation District as the district replaces an aging pressure-reducing station on Rambla de las Flores, south of La Granada. According to Arnold Keene, RSF Association field operations manager, the water district is in the process of replacing pressure-reducing stations throughout the district and the easement will allow them to excavate onto RSF Association property for the installation of an underground vault. As the vault includes some above ground fixtures, the RSF Association’s trails and recreation committee had requested that an alternate location as it would be quite an interruption to the trail system and traffic flow, said RSF Association President Philip Wilkinson. Wilkinson said that is one of the busiest and most dangerous crossings for equestrians in the Ranch. Upon extensive review, the irrigation district determined it would not be possible to move the location as it is too cost prohibitive. However, by granting the easement, the RSF Association will allow the district to place the unit the maximum distance from the road as well as allow the Association to provide landscape screening of the unit. The temporary easement allows not only the landscape but for the trail to detour around the little pond there. There will also be fencing to direct horses away from the construction. Keene said the district’s work should be complete in six months, although the accompanying roadwork in the area is moving ahead of schedule.

Local high school students talk with Earl Warren middle schoolers about positive influences BY KRISTINA HOUCK Growing up, Spencer attended eight different schools. He had trouble making friends and he experimented with drugs. Now a senior at a local high school, Spencer plans to join the U.S. Navy Reserves and study graphic design after graduation. “I was pretty lost and alone,” said Spencer during a presentation at Earl Warren Middle School. He talked openly about being arrested for drug possession. “But it doesn’t have to be that rough. I found positive influences.” Spencer was one of several high school students who visited seventh- and eighthgrade English classrooms and talked about positive influences June 3 and 4 at Earl Warren. Students from Canyon Crest Academy, San Dieguito Academy and Torrey Pines High School participated in the two-day event, which was organized by members of Earl Warren’s Friends of Rachel Club. “They’re so wonderful and open and genuine,” said English teacher Cheryl Yoshida after one of the presentations. “These kids really do worry about high school, so I think it’s a great bridge to make those connections.” School counselor Lisa Curry, a handful of teachers and a number of Earl Warren students launched the Friends of Rachel Club after the nonprofit organization, Rachel’s Challenge, hosted a school-wide assembly at the school earlier this year. In honor of Rachel Scott, the first murder victim of the Columbine High School massacre, the organization and its clubs aim to create safe, connected school environments where learning and teaching are

maximized. With the club nearing the end of its first year, Yoshida plans to grow the group and model it after Torrey Pines High School’s PALS (Peer Assistant Listeners) Program. Next year, club members will host more events and actively welcome new students to the school. “Instead of pointing out all the negatives, we focus on the positives and what we can do to make everyone feel included and respected,” said Yoshida, who serves as advisor of the roughly 25-member student club. To further its mission, the club promotes a positive message every month. May’s theme was “positive influences.” Club members invited students from local high schools to the campus to talk about their positive influences and how they help support them academically and personally. Seventh grader James Singer, whose older brother is a freshman at Torrey Pines, said he learned that “if you do something bad, you can recover from it.” “Their best advice was to always keep going and do things that you want to do,” added seventh grader Mikayla Azcue, who is looking forward to playing volleyball at Torrey Pines. “You don’t need to feel alone,” Yoshida said. “You have opportunities to make connections with really great people. You are supported here, at Earl Warren, and you’re going to be supported at your high school. There’s a lot to look forward to.” For more information about Friends of Rachel clubs, visit

Cathedral Catholic’s Brady Aiken Number 1 MLB pick, drafted by the Houston Astros BY ROB LEDONNE Brady Aiken, the Cathedral Catholic High School senior who seemed destined for greatness throughout his young baseball career, hit the national spotlight after getting drafted by the Houston Astros as the number one draft pick in the United States last week. Broadcast live on MLB Television and reported on by sports media worldwide, Aiken instantly became one of the most recognizable names in baseball (and a national trending topic on Twitter), when he was announced as the number one prospect in the country after years of honing his craft and months of rumors about his ranking. Gary Remiker, Aiken’s (now former) baseball coach at Cathedral Catholic, was one of many in North County watching as Aiken suddenly turned from a Southern California sports star to a national one. “I was sitting on the couch watching it on TV with my wife and my assistant coach, and when they announced Brady’s name we all started cheering,” Remiker said. “There was a lead up to that moment for weeks; until they announced he was actually number one we were all cautiously optimistic, nervous, and excited all at once. I think it’s pretty safe to say that this will never again happen in my career.” Being named number one is a double honor for Aiken, considering only two high school pitchers have been taken first in the entire history of the modern draft (which dates back to 1965). In addition, 17-year-old Aiken is initially set to make upwards of $8 million (which is a bonus “slot” payment the number one pick receives). Aiken beat out a nation full of hot baseball prospects to attain the number one ranking, including Tyler Kolek (a Texas-born pitcher who’s headed for the Miami Marlins) and Carlos Radon (another pitcher headed for the Chicago White Sox from North Carolina). “These past few months for Brady and his family have been chaotic to say the least,” Remiker said. “There were 30 MLB teams who wanted to meet him to find out what he’s like and how he handles himself. There were media outlets

Throughout it all, he did an amazing job handling everything. For me as a coach, there was more demand for my time this year than there’s ever been before. I tried to treat it as a special opportunity instead of a burden, and I imagine Brady felt the same way. I’m sure it will be like this for him for years to come.” The next step for Brady and his team is to hammer out a contract with the Astros (for now, only a verbal agreement is in place). Once that’s complete, he’ll join the short-season rookie league, and then it’s into the minors next season. According to Remiker, for a high school pitcher it “typically takes four to five years to go from the mi-

nors to majors.” With that timeline (which includes a plethora of variables in between), Aiken should be ready for his major league debut by the year 2018, give or take. In a recent interview with ESPN, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said: “(He’s) the most advanced high school pitcher I’ve ever seen in my entire career. He has command like I’ve never seen before of his stuff.” “Throughout this season, I’ve tried as much as I can to enjoy everything,” said Remiker, who noted the intense scrutiny on the Cathedral Catholic baseball team this year. “I had the best seat in the house for all of his starts. Based on natural talent alone, he’d be one of the better pitchers in San Diego. However, that can only get you so far, because what set Brady apart was his work ethic. He’d get up at 5 a.m. to go to the gym for conditioning, would always take great care of his body, and he constantly avoided many of the temptations a senior in high school may come across.” When speaking to ESPN after getting drafted, Aiken was understandably emotional, saying the moment was “Unbelievable. It’s really a dream come true. This is something that I’ve wanted ever since I was a young kid. I’m at a loss for words. This is my dream and it’s finally starting to come true.”

Two years in a row prestigious BSA Scholarship awarded to TPHS graduates •Brothers Matt and Sean Depolo also attended R. Roger Rowe School TPHS senior and RSF resident Matthew Depolo was recently awarded the Donald and Marie Belcher Eagle Scout Scholarship for leadership, as well as the RSF Rotary Scholarship via the Torrey Pines Scholarship Fund. The same awards were presented a year ago to his brother Sean Depolo. Russ Christensen, of the Eagle Scout Alumni Association, said both boys were top in the pool of candidates representing Eagle Scouts from all over San Diego County. The award recognizes what they did both in and out of scouting. Combined, the Depolo boys performed over 1,700 hours of community service during their high school years. Matt and Sean have been Scouts since first and second grade respectively and have earned their Arrows of Light and Eagle Scout Rank. In addition, Matt has gone on to earn two Eagle Palms; bronze and gold with a total of 32 Merit Badges. Matt and Sean Depolo say they are honored to be recipients of the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Scholarship for 2014 and 2013. They both say they have fond memories of growing up and going to school at the R. Roger Rowe school. Sean says the experience he had are ones that he would not have had elsewhere and “Rancho is a really great school.” Matt commented how special it was to be in the Honor Guard Flag Ceremony during the July 4 Parade multiple times, helping out at Rancho Days and even having fun directing traffic at the Community Concerts at the Village Church. They are both grateful for all the great things the Rotary does for the Rancho Santa Fe community. The brothers plan on studying engineering and pursuing a career in the medical field. Matthew will be attending the Henry Samueli School of Engineering at UC Irvine in its biomedical engineering program and is interested in the field of medicine and prosthetics. Sean, a Regent’s and Chancellor’s Scholar, was in the top 1.5 percent of UC Berkeley freshman admits. A sophomore this coming year, he studies bio-engineering and plans on a career in medicine and heart surgery. Over the years, both brothers say that Boy Scouts has played a significant role in their lives. Sean says, “Being a Boy Scout has taught me the importance of being an active leader and member of society. One of my most significant memories is when my Scoutmaster, Dan Claxton, told us that it takes a good man to be trustworthy, you can’t just follow blindly, and you can’t just be the smartest person around who isn’t willing to do his part.” Matt shares his experience in scouting as full of fun activities, campouts and learning experiences, and that, “Scouting has given me core values which drive all my actions in life. I approach any task, always willing, thinking that I will do a good job, do it well, and also do it so that I will be proud of helping others in my life.” Matt is the president and founder of clubs at his school and played two sports for four years — he is a varsity football player and varsity track and field thrower. Matt has also earned several scholarships from the Past President’s Award from the CSEA, Vista Employees Association Scholarship, a Union Plus Scholarship, and the Global Leadership Connection Ambassador Scholarship. In addition, Matt and Sean are committed to their community and grateful to the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary, Belcher Scholarship and all that have supported their college and career ambitions. The RSF Boy Scout Troop 766 meets bi-weekly at the Village Presbyterian Church and is led by Scoutmaster Dan Claxton as part of the San Diego Imperial Council.

TPHS harpist awarded University of Southern California’s prestigious Mork Family Scholarship BY KAREN BILLING Emma Dyson, a 17-year-old harpist from Torrey Pines High School recently became the first music student to receive the University of Southern California’s Mork Family Scholarship, a four-year, full-tuition scholarship with a $5,000 yearly stipend. Less than 20 Mork scholarships are offered per year and after Emma was accepted to the school she was selected to apply for the scholarship. Mork finalists are required to go through an interview process before they are awarded the scholarship and Emma underwent hers early this year. “I was nervous at first but it was pretty conversational and they let me lead the interview,� Emma said. “When I opened up my computer and saw I had won the scholarship I was shaking a bit because it meant so much to me. I was so excited, I had to immediately call my mom and dad. “I’m looking forward to the whole music program at USC and getting introduced to music I haven’t heard of and meeting people who are interested in different things.� Emma said she is especially excited to learn under USC’s harp professor JoAnn Turovksy as part of the USC Honors program. “Emma’s unique combination of musical talent, strong intellect and hard work has been recognized by the highly competitive University of Southern California,� said Turovsky. “I look forward to working with her and welcome her to my harp class.� Emma is the harpist for the Mainly Mozart Youth Orchestra and has performed with the Torrey Pines Advanced Orchestra, the New Youth Orchestra, NYO Advanced Chamber Orchestra, Civic Youth Orchestra, Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and in a range of chamber ensembles. Due to the angelic and relaxing sound of harp music, Emma has also been called upon to play gigs at parties and a day spa. With the Mainly Mozart group she has been a featured soloist many times—her final solo performance will be Sat-

TPHS harpist Emma Dyson will attend USC this fall on a full-ride scholarship. Courtesy photo urday, June 14, at Balboa Theater. The performance is at 6 p.m. and admission is free. Her face breaks into a smile when she mentions the piece she will play, Claude Debussy’s “Danses SacreĂŠ et Profane,â€? a favorite of hers. “Emma is such a joy to work with, I feel honored to have worked with her and helped her in any way,â€? said Hernan Constantino, the conductor of Mainly Mozart Youth Orchestra. “Emma is a highly skilled instrumentalist whose dedication to her instrument has inspired others around her to be better.â€? Emma started out playing the piano when she was 6 years old but she always had her eye on the harp. “I wanted to play the harp since I was 5 years old and I saw it in a picture book. I’d hear it and ask to play it again,â€? Emma said. As a 12-year-old middle school student, she started taking lessons on a small harp with not many strings, me-

morialized on display in a corner of her family’s living room. Once she started playing more classical music, she graduated to the large, 47-string concert grand that she uses to play today. “At first I don’t think I really realized to play an instrument you’ve got to practice a lot,� said Emma, who now practices a few hours every day. Emma takes lessons once a week from teacher Elena Mashkovtseva, a graduate of the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory and member of the harp faculty at San Diego State. “It is a joy to work with Emma, her rapid progress is inspirational,� said Mashkovtseva. “Her love and passion for the harp and music will serve her well in the future.� This summer leading up to USC, Emma will be attending the Idyllwild Arts Academy. She has attended the workshop for the last three summers, serving as the principal harpist this past summer. “She has a quiet and effective way of leading,� said Allison Allport, the workshop’s harp teacher. “When appropriate Emma is not afraid to speak up in a way that benefits the music but never alienates the other players. She is intelligent, kind, enthusiastic, proactive and very motivated.� Playing the harp has allowed Emma to play the classical music that she loves in an orchestra setting, where she has met many musicians from all over San Diego. When not playing the harp, the National Merit finalist enjoys doing yoga, reading and playing Scrabble with her friends. “USC presents an opportunity to go to a really good music school and take challenging academic classes and be able to balance them both,� Emma said. “I’m really thankful for all of the teachers I’ve had and I’m looking forward to next year.�

Sammy’s Del Mar to host fundraiser for children’s shelter Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza and the Rescue Children from Human Trafficking Foundation (RCHTF) present a fundraiser to open a shelter for child victims of trafficking in San Diego County. Sammy’s Del Mar Heights restaurant will donate 20 percent of dinner proceeds from those who dine in at the restaurant 5-8 p.m. Thursday, June 19, and present a copy of this article to their server that night. The restaurant is located at 12925 El Camino Real, J-21 (Del Mar Highlands Town Center). RCHTF member Kim Angle said children who escape or are rescued from human trafficking situations can’t go into regular homeless shelters because “these children have unique needs; they suffer from PTSD, multiple injuries, and often drug-addiction and STDs.” San Diego has a limited number of shelter beds available for victims of sex trafficking, and there are no shelters or homes for child victims.

Connie and Bill McNally, internationally-known antique dealers in Rancho Santa Fe, recently announced the launch of their new venture, McNally’s RSF Estate Auctions. The first auction, set for June 21-22 at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club, will offer an array of antiques, designer furniture, paintings and objets d’art from some of the finest homes in Southern California. A portion of profits will benefit local charities. While auctions have been around since the 16th century, the McNally auctions will have a decidedly 21st century twist, with bidders in the audience competing in real time with prospective buyers around the world via the internet. The public can now view the 395 items up for bids at Treasures range from a Louis XV-style vitrine valued from $15,000 to $25,000, to a more affordable art nouveau jewelry box, for $150-$300. Among the more unusual items are royal toilet accoutrements, including a chamber pot, soap dish and toothbrush container, once owned by King Frederick VIII of Denmark. The McNallys, who will continue to own and operate McNally Company Antiques, their longtime shop on Paseo Delicias in the Village of Rancho Santa Fe, say they decided to add estate sale auctions because more and more clients, many with large homes in Rancho Santa Fe, either want to downsize or update the home’s interior design. Disposing of a lifetime of possessions can become problematic. “People who are scaling back often have large pieces that they’ve had in the family for years, and their chil-

Photo by Gail Owens. dren don’t want them, they’re into more modern things,” says Connie. “Our clients want these treasured possessions to go to a good home because they are part of their family’s heritage.” Adds Bill: “Clients tell me ‘I’d rather sell the pieces now because if something happens to us, our children won’t know what the values are, and they’ll give them away.’” Better, say the McNallys, to enjoy the extra money now, perhaps take a trip, or invest it for the future. “The beauty of antiques, particularly, is in passing them down,” says Connie. “It is art history to start with, and you are only a steward of it for a certain amount of time. Whether we sell an item in our shop, or at auction, it goes into the hands of someone else who loves and desires it.” Another advantage to selling at auction, the McNallys say, is to save often

hefty storage fees. Bill tells the story of a couple who put many of their possessions in storage more than 20 years ago when they moved from La Jolla to Rancho Santa Fe. “I’ve paid $40,000 in storage,” the man told Bill. “And I have no idea in the world what’s there.” His wife still can’t bear to part with anything, so those costs will likely mount. The McNallys say auctions are successful for a simple reason: “People love the idea of finding a bargain.” Bidders include collectors, interior designers, and those who need to furnish a new or second home. “They’re looking for that special piece,” says Connie, “that hidden treasure.” McNally’s RSF Estate Auctions offer antiques, high-end contemporary furniture from Baker and other fine furniture makers, and, especially “hot” right now, mid-century pieces from the 1950s through the 1970s. “You never know what’s going to come in the door,” says Bill. Adds Connie: “It’s exciting. It’s always a treasure hunt.” Previews for the McNallys’ inaugural auction are Thursday, June 19, and Friday, June 20, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club, 17025 Avenida De Acacias in Rancho Santa Fe. The auction will be held on Saturday, June 21, beginning at 10 a.m., and on Sunday, June 22, beginning at 1 p.m. For more information about consigning a single item or an entire estate, contact the McNally’s RSF Estate Auctions at (858) 756-2701,, or

Torrey Pines High School promotes acceptance through student-run campaign, social media BY KRISTINA HOUCK “Just because I’m Middle Eastern doesn’t mean I’m a terrorist.” “Just because I’m Asian doesn’t mean I have a 4.0.” “Just because I’m quiet doesn’t mean I don’t have a lot to say.” These are the voices of Torrey Pines High School students. To fight stereotypes, celebrate diversity and promote acceptance, students have shared personal messages and photos of themselves on the school’s new Tumblr page, “Voices of TP.” “Acceptance is an issue people know about, but it’s at the very bottom of the list of issues to deal with,” said Torrey Pines junior Isabella Gadinis. “We’re trying to bring it to the surface. It’s a top priority.” The school’s Peer Assistant Listeners, or PALs, Program launched the social media page mid-May. Since then, the page has grown to almost 200 posts from students, teachers and alumni. “It’s about confronting judgments and stereotypes, and creating an inclusive environment where people are heard,” said teacher and PALs advisor Don Collins, who brought the idea to his students after seeing the University of Virginia’s Tumblr page, which celebrates the school’s diversity. “It’s about raising awareness and challenging ourselves. Once we raise awareness, we can start developing our acceptance. If we’re not aware of our preconceived ideas, we just assume that they’re true.” Launched in 2008, PALs is a service-oriented course that offers one-on-one peer assistance, and organizes campus activities and tours. Every year, students in the program organize Red Ribbon Week to promote alcohol and drug prevention, as well as Yellow Ribbon Week to raise awareness about mental illness and promote suicide prevention. The PALs program launched the Tumblr page during the school’s first an-

After hearing about students being bullied on campus, PALs Mimi Najmabadi and Bailey Pope proposed coordinating a campaign to promote self-care and acceptance. “It was really hard to hear — to learn someone was having such an awful experience,” said Mimi, a junior at Torrey Pines. She noted that one student said he was afraid to come to campus because he was being bullied. “We have the ability to change this.” “I just couldn’t understand why someone would want to be mean and want to hurt someone else,” added Bailey, also a junior. “So we decided it was necessary for our school to address the issue.” Organized by the program’s 44 sophomores, juniors and seniors during the last two weeks of May, Self-Care and Acceptance Weeks promoted diversity and tolerance through the Tumblr page and positive messages posted around campus. Held in conjunction with finals, the campaign also promoted healthy living, with student events focused on proper nutrition, exercise and stress reduction. Students and teachers who participated in the Tumblr page received T-shirts that read, “Be kind to yourself” and “100 percent self-approved.” “If these two weeks affected one person, switched their mindset and put them on a different path — it’s so worth it,” Isabella said. PALs plan to organize and celebrate Self-Care and Acceptance Weeks again next year. Students have also discussed bringing the campaign to local elementary schools. “In and of itself, this Tumblr isn’t going to change the community. But it can be part of opening a dialogue, part of increasing the voices of those underrepresented,” said Collins, who noted the nearly 2,800 students at the school speak more than 20 languages and come from more than 30 countries. “I’m proud of the PALs for the work they’ve put in, and I’m really proud of Torrey Pines High School,” he added. “The students at Torrey Pines have shown real maturity, insight and courage in speaking out their truths and letting it be known. And other people have been receptive in hearing that. That’s how we create understanding.” For more information, visit

LDS Church Awards 10 Crystal Apples to local teachers The Del Mar Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints held its 20th annual Crystal Apple Awards ceremony on May 8 where 10 local school teachers received an award. Teachers are honored annually by students who attend public high schools and are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Teachers are nominated by LDS students who attend “seminary” (Bible study) at 6 a.m. every day prior to going to their high school classes. Nominated teachers exemplify dedication to quality teaching and who uphold and encourage students’ moral values and high ethical standards. Drew Page, member of the Del Mar Stake Presidency and Crystal Apple Awards committee, welcomed those in attendance and shared these heartfelt comments submitted by LDS students along with their nominations: The winner from Earl Warren Middle School is Cheryl Yoshida. Her student’s say: “I feel happiest when I am around her. She values all opinions and treats them with respect. When I am in her class I feel like the sun is shining brighter. I hope to make her proud of my writing. I want to inspire kids when I grow up the way that Mrs. Yoshida has inspired me.” The winner from R. Roger Rowe School is Maureen Cassarino. Her students say: “She inspires me every day to be a more kind person. Her classroom is always a place I feel comfortable to open my heart and express my true feelings. One thing that I most admire about her are her signs stuck all around the classroom. My favorite is “Be nice or go away”. Even though these words are so simple, they have such strong meaning. So thank you for being such an inspiring example to me.” The winner from Canyon Crest Academy is Zachary Brown. His student’s say: “He really relates with all his students and gets to know all of them. Mr. Brown doesn’t just focus on teaching his subject but he also helps students improve in English and expresses and develops their thoughts and opinions. Mr. Brown is always quick to lend a helping hand and answer questions. He teaches his lessons in a manner which really helps me to get the material.” The winner from Torrey Pines High School is Catherine Mintz. Her students say: ““Ms. Mintz is amazing! You can tell, as you watch her teach, she makes me feel at ease and unlike other teachers she gives off this feeling of happiness and makes me cheerful when I come to class. She is the teacher that I want to keep in touch with after high school.” A Special Crystal Apple Award went to William Raschke from Earl Warren Middle School, a long-term substitute teacher who had overwhelming student nominations. His students say: “Mr. Raschke is an awesome teacher. For starters, he looks like Clark Kent, so he is essentially Superman. He makes the class interesting by making history fun.” “I know that Mr. Raschke has worked hard to become a history teacher. He is helpful, smart, kind, and very good at what he does. He’s always smiling and laughing, and doing the best for students. Mr. Raschke makes history come alive, and makes it fun.”

TPHS girls win state title Four players from Torrey Pines High School helped the San Diego Rush field hockey team to the Under 19 California state championship recently at Moorpark College near Los Angeles. Junior Clare Young and sophomores Farah Farjood, Gabi Jimenez and Shannon Yogerst were part of a 14-player squad that swept through Cal Cup undefeated including an edgeyour-seat title game victory over three-time defending champion San Diego Short Corner. Rush head coach Brian Schledorn decided to divide his travel team in half for the state tourney. His college-bound seniors (including Grace Trupe and Alie Zimmer from Torrey Pines and Gabi De Petro from Canyon Crest) and most of the juniors played in the college division. Meanwhile the underclassman – mostly sophomores and freshmen – competed at U19 against the best high school clubs in California. They easily won their pool to earn a quarterfinal berth, Farjood and Jimenez anchoring a defense that allowed just one goal, and both Young and Yogerst scoring goals. But nobody expected such a young team to advance farther, especially against older, more seasoned club teams and playing with only one substitute due to injuries. Defying expectations, they beat Saratoga Impact 1-0 on a goal by Nina Randolph (LCC). Next up was Quicksilver Cats, the defending Bay Area CIF champs. Goalie Chelsea Bigelow (Westview) made several spectacular saves to keep Rush in the game and Yogerst blasted a ball past the Cats keeper with less than five minutes to play to notch the win. The championship game was a back-and-forth affair that matched Rush’s speed and stick skills against Short Corner’s size, strength and experience. Tied 1-1 at the end of regulation, the game and state title was decided on penalty strokes, Rush prevailing 3-1.

Letters to the editor Education Matters/Opinion Illegal fees collected for cap-and-gown; refunds owed BY MARSHA SUTTON Parents who paid for caps and gowns for their graduating high school seniors this year are owed a full refund, the San Dieguito Union High School District has determined. Because the district did not make it clear that caps and gowns could be provided at no Marsha Sutton c h a r g e , SDUHSD is now forced to offer refunds to anyone who purchased the attire and does not wish to keep it. All orders for caps and gowns were processed through each school’s Associated Student Body, and the ASBs contracted with a third-party vendor. Jostens was used for Canyon Crest Academy and Torrey Pines High School. San Dieguito Academy and La Costa Canyon High School in the north used San Diego Graduate Supply. Costs varied from school to school and increased in price as ordering deadlines passed. Charges ranged from $40 to $56, with delivery fees as high as $10. At $50 per purchase for an average graduating class of 500, the total required to reimburse families for illegally charged fees could reach as high as $25,000 per high school. What’s galling is that ordering graduation regalia in bulk can cost as little as $12.95 per unit ( Now the district – meaning taxpayers – must pay three to four times that amount to reimburse families for their purchases. All this could have been avoided had the district followed a new law which was clearly communicated last fall. In a memo distributed to all school districts on Oct. 4, 2013, Jeannie Oropeza, a deputy superintendent of public instruction for the Calif. Dept. of Education, cited the Sands v. Morongo Unified School District case wherein “the California Supreme Court found that the high school graduation ceremony is ‘an integral part of the educational process’…” Because the graduation ceremony is an “educational activity,” a pupil fee for caps and gowns cannot be charged, Oropeza concluded in her memo. The legislative advocacy group School Services of California weighed in on the issue with an update to school districts on May 16, 2014, writing that the law “clarifies that school districts may not require students to purchase a cap and gown as a condition of participating in the graduation ceremony.” Sally Smith, education activist and crusader for equal access in public education, said in an email, “Districts had plenty of notice from CDE to provide caps and gowns but ignored CDE. It will be an expensive lesson but districts were forewarned.” Smith said it is irrelevant that third-party vendors were used, since the district directed students to one particular vendor. “The district picked the c/g, not the students,” she wrote. “The district could have contracted to buy in bulk but failed to do so when it was notified by CDE in October.” San Dieguito is liable for reimbursement because it was legally responsible for providing caps and gowns, she said, adding that the district must make a good-faith effort to contact all individuals who paid the illegal fees and send them refunds. A May 5, 2014 story in the Sacramento Bee stated that, “for the first time, the state has called on school districts to provide graduation attire at no cost to students or their families if required during the diploma ceremony.” The story referenced Sally Smith and quoted her as saying she’s filed more than 200 complaints against California school districts for collection of illegal fees. Smith, an attorney now focused on education law, filed a Uniform Complaint against the SDUHSD on May 2, objecting to several practices of the district’s, one of which was fees collected for cap-and-gown attire. She supported her claim with ample evidence, much of which could be found on school websites. Smith cited a Torrey Pines High School memo to students that offered two options for purchase of cap-andgown, with “Best Value!” highlighted. In the Canyon Crest Academy principal’s April 2014 letter to the senior class, this bullet was provided: “Get your cap and gown orders in! Packets are available in the finance office or front office!” A May 2, 2014 CCA daily bulletin posted this to seniors: “Today is the last day to preorder graduation caps and gowns from Jostens. Perfect sizing and fit cannot be guaran-

teed if you miss the deadline and decide to purchase in person at graduation rehearsal.” At San Dieguito Academy in Encinitas, an email received by parents of graduating seniors was sent from vendor San Diego Graduate Supply, with the headline: “San Dieguito seniors, the time to order your graduation items is here.” An order deadline of Dec. 15 is provided, with a notice that the price for cap-andgown will increase $10 after that date. Even more egregious are the notices that low-income students must self-identify as poor to qualify for a free cap-and-gown. The May 2 CCA notice concludes with this sentence: “If you would like to request financial assistance, please contact the assistant principal…” An SDA announcement stated, “If you need financial assistance ordering your cap and gown, information is available in the counseling office.” CDE’s Oropeza, in her 2013 memo to school districts, noted that “no student should be required to self-identify as indigent in order to receive a cap and gown from the district.” Improper charges In initial discussions with Eric Dill, SDUHSD’s associate superintendent of business services, he said the district was reviewing how “the messaging” went out but agreed that the district needed to provide the cap-and-gown set to any student who wanted to borrow one, regardless of income or proof of hardship or need. “All kids have to say is, I want one,” he said. “They don’t have to justify it.” Dill said it was likely that people “probably did purchase who might not have wanted to.” The district, he said, now has “a duty to go out and notify people that we made this improper charge, and then make it right.” San Dieguito’s formal response to Smith’s Uniform Complaint came on May 30. In it, Dill wrote that caps and gowns “are available to students who do not wish to purchase them, for any reason. Students must alert the school of their desire to borrow a cap and gown, but need not provide a reason.” Even though he claimed San Dieguito is in compliance with the law, the letter admitted a lapse by the district, stating, “The initial communications to students regarding caps and gowns may not have complied with the proper procedures for ensuring that all students were aware that caps and gowns were available to them,” at no cost. Furthermore, “Initial communications required students to speak to an administrator if they needed financial assistance,” he wrote, acknowledging this was wrong. “The district has since recognized that these procedures are improper.” “The district is also currently evaluating methods of ensuring that any student who

believed they were required to purchase a cap and gown in order to graduate, but did not wish to, are refunded,” the response stated. Even though the cap-and-gown sales are not run through the district’s main purchasing department, the refund money will come from the district’s general fund, Dill said. He said each school’s ASB sets its own contract with third-party cap-and-gown vendors, and ASB will be allowed to keep the money. “I wouldn’t want to take it out of ASB funds,” he said. “Since the court case essentially said that graduation is an instructional-related activity, then I think it follows that the district’s general fund should cover that and not student-activity funds.” The final step after notifying families of the error was implementing a workable system to exchange the caps and gowns for a refund. The district had to scramble to put a plan in place. By now, all families with graduating seniors should have received emails informing them that they may return the graduation attire on Monday and Tuesday, June 16 and 17, for a full refund, as long as the sets are not damaged or personalized. A more convenient day and time would have been directly after graduation ceremonies on June 13, but Dill said administrators felt that would be too chaotic. Dill said the cap-and-gown set must be returned as a unit; no partials will be accepted. But he was unsure what to do about the differing amounts people paid and advised everyone to save receipts to attach to their forms when the attire is returned to the schools. Every school has an inventory that has always been sufficient in the past, he said. But with the new law, the district will need more cap-and-gown sets to accommodate those families who don’t wish to buy their own. He said exchanging the caps and gowns for money this year will be a “back-door way of increasing our inventory.” This seems a nice way of saying being caught charging illegal fees will work out for the best. But it’s inexcusable that taxpayer money approaching $100,000 will need to be expended, when the cost to the district should have been one-quarter that amount. There’s no conflict here – it’s not like some major decision had to be adjudicated. Sally Smith challenged the district to follow the law and make amends for illegal fees, and the district agreed. The law was clear, plenty of notice was given, and the district is at fault. And now we all have to pay. Marsha Sutton can be contacted at

Local resident launches photo project showcasing Del Mar’s Dog Beach BY KRISTINA HOUCK For nine months of the year, man’s best friend can frolic leash free along the sandy shores of Del Mar’s North Beach. Armed with a camera, a local resident is highlighting the popular site with a new photo project. “The photos turned out really well,” said Terry Williams, a 20-year Del Mar resident, who recently launched a new website called Dog Beach Del Mar to showcase his photos. “They really capture the fun, the play, the interaction.” Located north of 29th Street, North Beach, also known as “Dog Beach,” stretches nearly a half-mile to the city’s border with Solana Beach. Del Mar allows dogs to roam the area free with their owners much of the year, but leashes are required June 16 through Labor Day. With a passion for animals and the beach, Williams took to the sand about a month ago to capture fun-filled moments of beachgoers and their fourlegged friends. “There are lots of people and lots of dogs. It’s a

as well as Classical is Cool, a site that promotes classical music for young people. Having launched his latest project in June, Williams plans to continually update the site with new shots. “I hope people enjoy the beauty of these dogs and the freedom of their play at the beach,” said Williams, who was the proud owner of a keeshond for 15 years be-

fore his dog died a few years ago. “Dog Beach is leash free for most of the year — not a lot of dog beaches or parks allow that. The beach is just beautiful and has attained quite a notoriety.” For more information about the photo project, visit

FIRE continued from page 1 seen until August or September and the district has been observing that level in the area since February. “(The fuel levels) are just perpetrating the fire season. For all intent and purposes we should have lost homes but we didn’t. Defensible space is paying off and it shows. Kudos to the people who have done what they need to do around their houses.” The Bernardo Fire was ignited by accident at a construction site on May 13 just before noon, south of Del Norte High School, the south end of 4S Ranch. Deputy Chief Mike Gibbs said the fire started in light grass and was aided in its spread by winds of 25 miles per hour, gusting up to 40 miles per hour. The fire on the mesa top unfortunately progressed into the east-west drainage area and caught the full force of the Santa Anas and took off, eventually reaching the Lusardi Creek area that funnels into Zumaque. Gibbs said fire crews thought they would be able to capture the fire at a choke point at the Camino Del Sur main bridge but they were unsuccessful. “We dumped everything on that, we had hand crews and helicopters,” Michel said. “But little embers

that flew in seconds were quarter-acre fires.” Once the fire burned into Lusardi canyon, it came into the footprint of the 2007 fire. Michel said there hasn’t been a lot of recovery since 2007 so the fuel loads and intensity of the fire was not the same. Another “saving grace” was that when it got to that point, around 5 p.m., there had been a reversal in the winds. Michel said a lot of their success in fighting the fire could be attributed to the fact it was the first to start and they got the majority of resources with aircraft and personnel on the ground. He said later fires were hindered by not having the resources available that they did. Michel said it’s going to take a long rainy season to get fuel moisture levels up so it’s important that the district maintains its good partnership with the community, educating people about defensible space and staying fire safe. Renee Hill, deputy fire marshal, said rather than staying and defending your home, it’s more important to harden your structure by taking steps such as replacing roofs; making sure roofs and gutters are clean; using ember-resistant vents; and reviewing your landscaping and mulch. Hill said those steps could ensure that if a firefighter is not there and

there are little spot fires near your home, it will protect itself. “Efforts we put in before the fire comes are more important than boots on the ground,” Michel said. Hill said they have placed a focus on dead and dying eucalyptus trees on evacuation routes within Rancho Santa Fe, not looking to clear-cut, just to reduce the threat and hazard. RSF Association Director Rochelle Putnam noted that an Association trails and recreation committee has been working with the fire district to put together a special equestrian evacuation plan. She said during the fire, it took her two and a half hours to move two horses to the Del Mar Fairgrounds evacuation center as traffic was backed up all the way down Via de la Valle to Mary’s Tack and Feed. Putnam said she hopes they can coordinate a smoother plan for the unique needs of equestrian facilities for future emergencies. Michel agreed and said when in doubt, people evacuating horses should start earlier as it takes longer.

Salute to Beethoven at Athenaeum’s festival social dinners The 16th annual Athenaeum Music & Arts Library Summer Festival with pianist Gustavo Romero will feature four concerts celebrating the work of composer Ludwig van Beethoven at 4 p.m. Sundays, July 6, 13, 20 and 27. Post-concert dinners are part of the package, set in private homes or at the Athenaeum, allowing concert-goers to socialize, meet Romero, and have a meal together. Dinners are $165 and include the concert ticket. The series of four concerts and dinners are $620. Romero, a native San Diegan, first performed at the Athenaeum as a boy, and it was with him that the Athenaeum planned its first Summer Festival in 1999, the organization’s 100th anniversary. Each year, he chooses composers to study in depth, sharing the full range of their artistry. For more information, visit the Athenaeum at 1008 Wall St., contact (858) 454-5872 or

HOUSING continued from page 1 community.” As it was presented, the board liked the concept and product quality and felt it would be something positive for Rancho Santa Fe. “It looks classy and in keeping with the community character,” said RSF Association Vice President Rochelle Putnam. “I think stepdown hosing is something very much needed here.” In The Inn’s specific plan approved in 1988 and amended in 2001, 133 units were approved and 99 exist

today, allowing for an additional 34 units. Currently The Inn operates the dwelling units, built over the last 90 years, as long-term residences for rent. Two existing communities will remain untouched, the communities of Casitas de Cielo and Canyon View. Some dwelling units will be removed to create three new neighborhoods called The Orchard, The Grove and La Gracia Village. Kratzer said the plan is to offer three distinct products to the marketplace. With the Orchard, they would demolish the two ex-

isting units and add five new single-story detached courtyard homes in the Lilian Rice row house style of about 2,800 square feet. With the Grove, off La Flecha by the RSF Senior Center, they would demolish two units and come back with four approximately 3,000-square-foot units. At La Gracia Village, they propose demolishing the 10 existing units to redevelop into 21 2,000 -squarefoot units in three two-story structures. Although the buildings would be two-story, because of the step down in grade from Senda de la Luna, they would be below

MATH continued from page 1 would have students bestprepared for the next level — both for students who need to be challenged and those that need extra help. Schaub said the new Common Core State Standards (which go into effect this fall) recommend against acceleration in math because the philosophy is that it’s best not to “squeeze a lot in” but rather focus on depth of knowledge. As SDUHSD is doing, RSF will offer accelerated students a chance to skip seventh grade math and they are developing an online course for seventh graders to show mastery of that level. Students on that track would then go from advanced sixth grade math to eighth grade math and then take SDUHSD’s ninth grade Integrated Math 1 in eighth grade. For students who are struggling or need small group instruction, the dis-

FLASH continued from page 1 Enhancement Fund, and RSF Tennis Club and Golf Club numbers from memberships to food and beverage revenue. The flash report also includes Covenant Design Review Committee applications submitted and approved. RSF Association Director Jerry Yahr requested more information in that item so RSF Association directors can see the success rate — such as applications submitted, deferred, withthe street level. Kratzer said The Inn would have the ability to offer hotel amenities to the people who live there, such as housekeeping, room service, spa privileges and direct links to The Inn’s phone system. The units in all three neighborhoods would be for sale but some may be retained by The Inn for longterm rentals. Kratzer said he knows of no long-term renters who would be displaced by the planned demolition. Their longest renters, one of them who has been there for 26 years, live in Casitas de Cielo and Canyon View

trict will offer math intervention outside of the regular math block. “Regardless of what track (the student is on), it’s really rigorous and difficult,” Schaub said. “Students are going to be challenged.” Schaub said the new Common Core math curriculum has been a huge undertaking and a big change this year. “Changes in homework were the biggest challenge in the beginning of the year,” said Superintendent Lindy Delaney. By November, the problems seemed to be ironed out regarding homework but it did take a lot of education for both parents and staff—the students were the easy ones. “They’re like sponges,” Delaney said. RSF School District Board Vice President Todd Frank agreed that the homework has been rough—especially when students came home with poorly Xeroxed sheets for assignments. Delaney

agreed that “cattywampus” copies reflect a rush and that not a lot of thought has been put into it. She admitted it has been a challenge but they have been and will continue to work with teachers on that issue. Schaub said it has been a “long and tedious” process reviewing materials for their math program. Staff reviewed potential new material from eight publishers. “At this time I’m recommending not to adopt or purchase any material,” Schaub said. “They just don’t meet the needs of Common Core.” Instead of adopting new material at this time, RSF will continue using the district-written curriculum and Engage NY material, free material from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that Schaub said gives a solid scope and sequence for the year. Schaub said it was many of the teachers’ decision to stay with what they used this school year as it is really working for the kids.

drawn and approved in both new homes and remodels. The board will also have a flash report on the unrestrictive reserves — essentially the amount of cash the board has available to spend. Currently that reserve is in the $1.7 million range. RSF Association Treasurer Larry Spitcaufsky said the report reminded him that the board probably carries too much money in free reserves and the board should consider moving about $300,000 to another fund.

Wilkinson said that kind of discussion is just one demonstration of how valuable a tool the report can be. The flash report continues to be a work in progress as far as what and how much information gets included — Wasserman said the hope is for the report to be just one page a month. In the long term, the board also hopes to give members access to the monthly reports via a password-protected page on the RSF Association website.

and will not be effected. Just two weeks ago, the RSF Association heard a presentation on another stepdown housing project in the community — a proposed 46 units and four estate lots on the 29-acre Mabee property on Calzada del Bosque and Via de la Valle. RSF Association Director Larry Spitcaufsky said while he supports the idea of step-down housing; he was wondering how big the market is for it. Kratzer said it has been somewhat challenging researching how big the marketplace is for step-down housing as the real estate re-

search tends to be anecdotal. He has been told that properties that come available that are under 3,000 square feet and within walking distance to the village don’t stay on the market long. According to tax records, he said about 20 percent of Covenant homes are under-3, 000 square feet but many have been remodeled and are significantly larger than when they went on the tax roll. He estimates that currently about 15 percent or less of Covenant homes are 3,000 square feet or less..



Youth volunteers distribute annual graduation safety bulletin San Dieguito Union High School District hosts graduation ceremonies at four high schools on June 13, and teen volunteers are using the occasion to send an important message to parents and graduates regarding local laws prohibiting underage drinking parties. The “Graduation and Summer Safety Bulletin,” sent jointly from the school district, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and San Dieguito Alliance for Drug Free Youth, alerts students and parents to the dangers of underage drinking, the responsibilities of party hosts, and local Social Host Ordinances (SHO). Social host ordinances hold party hosts responsible for making sure minors do not have access to alcohol. Violators may face six months in jail and pay fines up to $1,000 including costs for law enforcement services. Party hosts are required to control access and quantity of alcohol, verify the ages of guests, and supervise the activities of minors. San Diego County Sheriffs have issued over 100 citations for SHO violations since 2012 in their contract cities and the unincorporated areas of the County, according to data analyzed by the Center for Community Research. Over half of those cited were minors under 21, and nearly two-thirds were male. The public seems to be getting the message – nearly half of adults surveyed in the North Coastal region reported awareness of SHO in 2013, compared to only 26 percent in 2011. Preventing underage drinking is important. People reporting first use of alcohol before age 15 are more than five times more likely to abuse alcohol later in life compared with people who first used alcohol at age 21 or older. Alcohol is also associated with the leading causes of death for teens and young adults including motor vehicle crashes, homicides, suicides and unintentional injuries. “Our teens are important to their families and friends, and we want them to enjoy graduation without any negative experiences,” said San Dieguito High parent Olivia Jacobsen. “This is an important time to spread the message to teens and parents about preventing underage drinking,” stated Mckenna Dunn with La Costa Canyon High School Teens for Teen Safety. Youth volunteers will be on hand at graduation ceremonies being held June 13 at La Costa Canyon, Torrey Pines, San Dieguito Academy, and Canyon Crest Academy High Schools. The youth represent various groups including Teens for Teen Safety, Young Leaders in Healthcare, and La Colonia Changers. These groups are sponsored by local community agencies, including Scripps Hospital, La Colonia de Eden Gardens, County Office of Education’s Friday Night live, and San Dieguito Alliance. Because preventing alcohol consumption by minors is everyone’s responsibility, the public is encouraged to report underage drinking parties to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department: (858) 565-5200, San Diego Police Department Northwestern Division: 858-5237000, or Carlsbad Police Department: 760-602-2442. — Press release

Klutz in the kitchen? How-to author will offer cooking tips at talk

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY ASHLEY MACKIN Celebrity chef Ina Garten says stirring a pot of risotto at the end of the day with a glass of wine can be relaxing. Food Network personality Anne Burrell prefers tenderizing meat as a way of bringing joy to the cooking experience. Whatever your preference, author Kate Payne wants to see you in the kitchen, enjoying yourself. In her new book, “The Hip Girl’s Guide to the Kitchen,” she presents different projects for aspiring cooks and will speak about them at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 17, at Warwick’s Books, 7812 Girard Ave. One of Payne’s first projects was baking bread. “I’ve been gluten-free for eight years but because I was living in Austin (Texas) and had a salary, I didn’t mind buying the gluten-free bread.” But in 2008, she and her wife Jo Ann moved to New York, and that bread was suddenly $9 a loaf. “I thought, how hard could it be to make this myself?” she said. “That was really my introduction to the kitchen. My background is in anthropology and sociology, and working for nonprofits, so my culinary experience is fairly limited.” From there, in an effort to get the most from her entire grocery budget, she started making jams and pickles. A particular favorite, and something she plans to discuss at Warwick’s, is preserving vegetables through lacto-fermentation. “They are incredibly easy to do (despite how it sounds) and they can be done in small batches, so people can get the hang of it,” she said. “Fermented vegetables are really crisp and zingy, but not acidic, and can have that pickle taste plus whatever flavorings you add to it.” Payne said the fermentation gives certain vegetables have probiotic benefits, similar to those found in yogurt, and that fermented cabbage produces anti-carcinogenic compounds. “It’s pretty magical stuff,” she said. Now back in Austin, Payne said cooking for her family is “a grounding experience” and that once novices get in the habit of cooking, even just a few small things, making complete meals is not that far behind.

is going in your body.” She said there are many reasons why people don’t cook today. “Sometimes people watch the Food Network and think ‘only people like that cook at home,’ or maybe it’s because there are so many cookbooks and so many recipes that people get inundated with possibility and don’t actually undertake anything,” she said. “It can all get to be too much.” She hopes her books (she also penned “The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking,” HarperCollins, 2011) simplfy the cooking process.

Farrell Family Jazz at the Athenaeum Melissa Aldana & Crash Trio Wednesday, June 18th @ 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $21 for members · $26 for nonmembers Join us for the local debut of Melissa Aldana & Crash Trio, featuring Chilean-born tenor saxophonist Melissa Aldana with bassist Pablo Menares and the esteemed Cuban drummer Francisco Mela. A rising star on New York City’s jazz scene, late last year Aldana became the first female instrumentalist to win the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Saxophone Competition. The Washington Post wrote, “Aldana embodies a new sense of possibility and direction in jazz.” The Boston Globe wrote, “Aldana and the Crash Trio moved through alternating sections of Afro-Latin grooves, straight-ahead swing, and out-of-tempo exploration…every solo felt personal—in the way an abstract run would break for an aside of funky riffs, or in the way Aldana would climb to the top of her altissimo and stay there, holding a final note on a softly fading vibrato.”

General has fun fighting foibles in ‘Faded Glory’ at NC Rep Upcoming home tour features historic Rancho Santa Fe Row Houses

BY DIANA SAENGER LET’S REVIEW! Tales from the Civil War are rarely amusing, however, playwright Tim Burns’ “Faded Glory” finds huge hilarity and humor in retelling the story of one colorful old soldier — General Daniel Sickles. The delightful drama, based on the life of a long-forgotten figure has its world premiere on the North Coast Repertory stage through June 22. The curtain rises on stacks of old papers and a bright Civil War uniform, which fill the home of the retired general, a military hero who’s had his Congressional Medal of Honor rescinded. What did Sickles do to have that happen? Maybe what he didn’t do is easier to answer. As he prepares to have an official portrait painted, the audience learns he’s been quite the scoundrel in his lifetime — a murderer, philanderer, Congressman, embezzler, and lover of Queen Isabella of Spain … among other things. Actor Andrew Barnicle is stunning as Sickles, who is stuck in a wheelchair because his leg was shot off in the Battle of Gettysburg. He’s a tough old curmudgeon who spends a lot of time hollering at this caregiver/confidant, Eleanor (Shana Wride). Sickles whines about his inabilities, and the injustices he believes he’s suffered, only to become even more upset when his romantic gestures to Eleanor always end up rebuffed. Wride is priceless as Eleanor. She is not only a boxingring match for Sickles’ verbal abuses, but his physical advances as well. Wride infuses Eleanor’s rich dialogue with just the right amount of humor and sarcasm, drawing laughter from the audience at most every line. Theater always loves a few drunks, so Ben Cole (as Frank Butler) and Bruce Turk (as actor John Barrymore) are clearly assets when they sneak through Sickles’ bedroom window and fall face-first on the floor. Sickles wakes to see his old friends, and begins a long conversation with Barrymore about his acting career. The thespian flounders all over the room looking for more liquor and making disparaging comments about his craft. When he finds a most unusual object that just might contain a few drops of alcohol, we see to what lows his lushness has sunk. Yet, Turk is a blast as

General Daniel Sickles (Andrew Barnicle) finds himself confronted by two sassy females (Shana Wride and Frances Anita Rivera), in the funny ‘Faded Glory.’ Aaron Rumley Barrymore. Things only intensify when Sickles’ estranged wife Condesa (the handmaid of his former lover, Queen Isabella of Spain) shows up after 30-some years and demands they re-unite. Frances Anita Rivera plays both the Queen and Contessa — each women holding a pivotal secret that centers on Sickle. NCRT’s Artistic Director David Ellenstein is a pro at picking the productions just right for his theater, and he’s done a great job in directing this one with all its fussing and frivolity. Burn’s dialogue is masterful in advancing the story and revealing the characters. “Faded Glory” should not be missed and ought to be Broadway-bound, according to the opening night audience. If you go: “Faded Glory” plays matinees, evenings through June 22 at North Coast Repertory Theatre, 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach. Tickets: $37-$54 at (858) 481-1055 and www.northcoastrep.

Diegueño Country School cultural and historical DIG study This year, Diegueño Country School journeyed around the world for its cultural and historical DIG study, an archeological simulation. Every class researched a different continent to honor the physical and cultural geography of each region. Students in kindergarten through sixth grade used PowerPoint, Glogster, and Prezi software to demonstrate their rich understanding of each continent and teach their parents in an exciting format prior to their stage performance. Following the classroom presentations, the children engaged in a dynamic stage presentation that took the audience on a cruise around the world that showcased fast-paced worlddance choreography, harmonious musical numbers, and clever narration in a tribute to each continent. For the grand finale, the three Diegueño Geography Bee finalists faced-off to determine the winner of the school-wide competition. Students created artifacts to represent each continent, including: detailed sculptures, finely crafted embroidery, architectural replicas of landmarks, authentic musical instruments, cultural masks, ancient jewelry, and dyed cloth…just to name a few artifacts. Diegueño Country School is currently accepting applications for the fall semester. Please contact Sushma Patel to schedule a tour (858-756-0184). Photos by Jon Clark and courtesy photos.

Canyon Crest Academy recently received their No Place for Hate designation from the Anti Defamation League.

CCA receives ‘No Place for Hate’ designation

BY KAREN BILLING Canyon Crest Academy recently received a No Place for Hate designation from the AntiDefamation League for the third year in a row. CCA was one of 32 San Diego County schools and the only San Dieguito Union School District school to receive the designation. The No Place for Hate initiative seeks to promote respect for individual difference while challenging bigotry and prejudice. To receive the designation, the campus must engage the entire school community to sign ADL’s Resolution of Respect and complete three or more school-wide activities that focus on anti-bullying prevention, anti-bias or diversity. Teacher Tracy Bryant has led the No Place for Hate effort and said it’s a big honor to continue on the tradition of the ADL designation. “For me it’s not just a one-year thing, it becomes a multi-year thing and it becomes a buzzword on campus,” Bryant said. “Kids think they can’t change the climate of the school but they can change the climate of the school. The most rewarding part is to see a more inclusive environment, where kids are thinking more consciously on not propagating hate. To make a little bit of an impact, it’s worthwhile and year to year there’s such acceptance.” Earlier in the year, CCA held a No Place for Hate Week where they had guest speakers on civil rights and diversity and heard from Holocaust survivor Horst Cahn. They also had a separate event with speaker Emmanuel Jal, a former Sudanese child soldier who now advocates for peace, and held Challenge Day, a day that breaks down stereotypes and promotes acceptance and respect among peers. The activities are just a few of the many things CCA does to promote a more inclusive campus. Bryant said she is not naïve enough to think that there is no bullying or discrimination happening at CCA, but she said the school is overall an extremely positive and welcoming place to be. “CCA is so accepting already. This is my fifth high school and this is the most tolerant high school I’ve ever worked at,” Bryant said. “The kids here are genuinely nice, they thank me after class and that comes from their parents who taught them to be respectful.” Student leaders in the SLATE Club organized and planned many of the activities for the No Place for Hate designation. Bryant brought SLATE (Students Learning Acceptance Through Education) to CCA after originating the club at a high school in Colorado. The SLATE Club is also focusing on cyber-bullying and members attended a cyber-bullying conference with ADL earlier this year. “That’s the challenge for high school, the technology piece, and how it can be universal with this age group,” said Bryant of the focus moving forward to prevent bullying and hate speak on social media platforms that the kids all use. Bryant said she wants to encourage other districts to participate in No Place for Hate because it involves a lot of things the schools probably already do, the process just highlights it and encourages schools to do more.

Pacific Ridge School volunteers recognized by The Arc of San Diego The Arc of San Diego has selected Pacific Ridge School to receive its President’s Volunteer Service Award in recognition of the commitment and dedication of the school’s student and adult volunteers. The Arc of San Diego, a service provider for local children and adults with disabilities, has been a longtime community partner for Pacific Ridge’s Middle School Service learning program. Students visit the San Marcos facility nearly every week to engage with Arc’s clients in craft projects, music performances games, seasonal activities and more. “Our partnership with the Arc of San Diego is consistently one of the most profoundly moving experiences for our Middle School students and their faculty mentors,” said Pacific Ridge School Director of Service Learning, Alison Behr. “Through their work with Arc consumers, students become more compassionate, patient, and selfless.” The award will be given at the Arc of San Diego’s Annual Meeting and Installation Ceremony in late June. The event is held to honor staff and consumers for their contribution to the organization, as well as to recognize the efforts of volunteers who work to help improve the lives of people with disabilities. Arc is one of six community partners that middle school students actively engage with as part of Pacific Ridge’s curriculum-integrated service learning program. During their seventh and eighth-grade years, students spend time each week performing a variety of meaningful service. Projects include visiting local Head Start facilities to play with and read to preschoolers, helping to promote adoptions and maintain the shelter facility at Carlsbad’s Department of Animal Services, working with the Center for Natural Lands Management to restore a local preserve, and sharing stories and creating projects with seniors at Sunrise at La Costa and ActivCare in Bressi Ranch.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS EZ Cars 101 makes the car-buying experience easy BY KRISTINA HOUCK From competitive pricing to unmatched customer service, EZ Cars 101 truly makes the car-buying experience easy. But what really sets the Encinitas-based company apart from other dealerships is its 90-day warranty on qualified cars. “When you buy a car from us, you don’t have to worry about it,” said Karen Ventura, who co-owns the business with her husband, Gene Ventura. “When we get our cars through trade or we buy them from auctions, we fix them. We don’t want you to have any problems.” EZ Cars 101 offers a variety of pre-owned vehicles, from economy cars to luxury cars. Located one block from Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, the company carries about 60 vehicles on its lot. Because most sales are

EZ Cars 101 offers a variety of pre-owned vehicles, from economy cars to luxury cars. Photo by Kristina Houck done online, EZ Cars 101 also has expanded its presence on the Internet through its website, eBay,, and social media. Always growing, the company plans to open an offsite warehouse to house even more vehicles. “We’re technologically advanced and our top concern is operating at the highest level of integrity,” said Gene Ventura. Although the company ships vehicles across the country, EZ Cars 101 is still a local, family-owned business at heart, Karen Ventura explained.

A few things I’ve heard through the grapevine The Kitchen Shrink

CATHARINE KAUFMAN “Beulah, peel me a grape.” ~ Mae West Plump, juicy grapes in rich royal jewel tones have invaded supermarket aisles and farmers market stands, piled high in luscious mounds. When you pop a cold one in your mouth, the sweet juices burst into thirstquenching ambrosia. A Methuselah fruit, grapes have been hanging around for more than 8,000 years. They were first cultivated domestically in the Near East, where the craft of winemaking seems to have developed as a natural progression of cultivation. Enjoy this botanical berry at its

peak this summer. Cabernet for the Cure Grapes, especially the red, purple and black varieties are loaded with antioxidants called bioflavonoids that pack a powerful anticancer punch. Grape skin, in particular, a rich source of resveratrol, synonymous with wine, has been found to put the skids on enzymes that stimulate cancer cell growth. Drinking more than one glass of wine a day, on the other hand, has been linked to increasing breast cancer risk. So swap that second glass of Merlot for some fresh concords or a swig of grape juice. Resveratrol has also been linked to longevity by the activation of three anti-aging genes. In addition, just one handful of grapes a day will pump iron into your blood, Vitamin C and other antioxidants into your immune system, a load of fiber into your intestines to keep your constitution regular. A mother lode of Vitamin A and lutein grapes will boost ocular health. There’s more. The noble berry is packed with folate, body-balancing potassium and anti-inflam-

matory quercetin to ward off free radicals and reduce the risk of heart disease. Seedy Side of Grapes Conventionally grown grapes appear on the notorious “Dirty Dozen” list of the most heavily pesticide-laced fruit and vegetable crops. A single sample tested had contained 15 pesticides. Standing advice – buy organic. The Grapes of Math • Spanish explorers introduced grapes to America roughly three centuries ago. • There are some 8,000 varieties of grapes worldwide with 60 species, primarily American and European. • One cup of grapes is a mere 100 calories. • 2.5 pounds (or 600 to 800 wine grapes) yield one bottle of wine. • 10 percent of U.S. grapes are grown organically. • 72 million tons of grapes are grown around the world, with 300,000 tons in California alone. My cup runneth over as the majority of these grapes (71 percent)

Sweet and Savory Grape Gazpacho Ingredients 1 pound or 2 cups of seedless green grapes 1 Persian cucumber, chopped 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped 1 cup of Greek yoghurt 1/4 cup of white grape juice, adjust to desired consistency Juice from one lime 2 scallions, thinly sliced 1/2 cup of Marcona almonds or blanched almonds are used to produce wine — over 7.2 trillion gallons.

To your health: Avoid hazards on the road to raising young athletes BY PAUL STRICKER, M.D., SCRIPPS CLINIC Kids are getting involved in sports at younger ages, training more intensely at younger ages, and have more pressure at younger ages than in previous decades. According to the National Council of Youth Sports, approximately 60 million kids in the U.S. are now playing in at least one organized activity. Getting into the game can bring many benefits: improved fitness, better social skills and less downtime for potential trouble. But pressure to succeed at a young age has set the stage for physical overuse injuries, emotional stress and burnout. Even if well-intentioned, too much pressing can create problems. These pitfalls can often be averted if parents and coaches understand how kids develop their athletic abilities. Children build sports skills in a progressive sequence that cannot be dramatically sped up. It is important to understand how an individual child’s sports skills develop, and then those skills should be nurtured with patience and support in order to provide the best opportunity to maximize performance and minimize pressure. Over the past decade, I have seen a 25 percent jump in the number of overuse injuries – and the injuries themselves are becoming more severe. For example, stress fractures were unheard of in children just a few years ago, but now have become relatively common. This is what can occur when kids are trained at adult levels. To help kids effectively learn sports skills, parents and coaches need to understand all three core developmental processes – physical, intellectual and emotional. To start, here is a sampling of physical sports skill milestones that are important to keep in mind: •Ages 2 to 5: Most kids can’t yet effectively throw and catch (due to incomplete development of the brain’s vision centers); basic skills like running and hopping are acquired mostly through unstructured play. •Ages 6 to 9: The body’s nerve connections start doing a better job of communicating the brain’s messages to the muscles – as a result, a basic toss may progress to a more accurate throw. •Preadolescence (age 10 to puberty): Control of body motions becomes more automatic; kids can refine skills like pivoting, turning and spinning; eye-to-brain pathways mature, allowing for better visual judgment of speed and location. •Puberty (usually ages 11-13 for girls; 13-15 for boys): Due to rapid physical growth, there may be a temporary decline in balance skills and body control, as the body’s center of gravity changes. •Mid-to-late teens: More aerobic gains are achievable with training; strength gains can be achieved, but heavy weights should be avoided until the skeleton fully matures. Many of the skills required for sports fall on a developmental milestone highway that occurs in stages over a period of time, much of which cannot be sped up. Parents and coaches should keep in mind that “success” is not only measured by taking first place or a receiving a gold medal -- improvement is the true mark of personal success!

Reception held for women honored in photo exhibit “Notes to Our Sons and Daughters: My Sister’s Voice” is a one-of-a-kind photographic exhibition that was held June 6 in downtown San Diego. The exhibition featured 40 remarkable women from all ages and walks of life. One of the honorees, Rancho Santa Fe resident Ruth Westreich, a philanthropist and artist, made necklaces for all of the honorees. As one of the event’s honorary chairs, she presented the women with the necklaces during a private reception held June 5 at her Fairbanks Ranch home. Proceeds from the June 6 exhibition event benefit the Center for Community Solutions (CCS), a San Diego nonprofit that operates the only rape crisis center in the city of San Diego along with a countywide 24-hour bilingual crisis helpline. Founded in 1969, CCS serves more than 11,000 adults and children each year through emergency domestic violence shelters, hospital and court accompaniment, as well as legal and counseling services for those affected by rape, domestic violence and elder abuse. A book featuring the black and white photos, as well as bios of the women, is available online. Proceeds will also benefit CCS.

SPONSORED COLUMNS MICHAEL PINES Accident & Injury Legal Advice 858.551.2090

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

first onto icy pavement. “My feet went out from under me and my head just hit the pavement,” said Carey Gelfand, a Glencoe, Ill. resident who said she was on a business trip in New York when the accident occurred. Although she brushed off the accident at first, a cognitive fog soon developed. Once she returned home, she began forgetting crucial details and lost the ability to focus at work. Exhaustion overtook her body and she was often plagued with debilitating headaches. “My boss [wanted] to take jobs away from me. I was very diminished in my position. I was just so frustrated and I had such poor sense of self,” said Gelfand. Although most TBIs occur as a result of car accidents, some may occur in the most unfortunate and yet ordinary ways such as a trip or fall. Seeking medical attention as soon as a TBI is suspected is essential when it comes to recovery and possible prevention of further injury. “It is important after a brain injury see a

neurologist who can administer the proper tests,” the article noted. “Not doing so means it could be weeks or years before the injury is diagnosed.” Gelfland said her job suffered considerably in wake of her TBI. Though she did not lose her job, she struggled to keep up with demands. Fortunately, she is able to talk about her experience, striving to create awareness for this surprisingly prevalent injury (TBIs affect at least 1.5 million Americans each year). Although Gelfland has maintained her work, most people are not as fortunate. One small study found that low income and unemployment were quite common in the aftermath of a traumatic brain injury, leading many into difficult financial positions. There is one bright aspect: psychologists, doctors and other healthcare practitioners are working together to increase head injury awareness. “I think we are in… one of those ‘ah ha!’ [moments]. We know better now,” said Chicago-based psychologist Morgan Wolin.

“But, if we know better, will we do better? Will human resources say, ‘Okay concussions are a real thing, let’s take it more seriously?’” As for employee accommodation, most human resource (HR) departments are willing to accommodate individuals with TBIs. For the most seamless transition, employees affected by traumatic brain injury are urged to work with their employers and HR departments to find a reasonable solution. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, individuals with a TBI may need special accommodations such as: SCHEDULE CONSIDERATIONS. You should work with your employer to accommodate shorter work days and/or an increase in breaks. Resting is the key when it comes to recovery. SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS. Operating vehicles, heavy equipment or lifting heavy objects are generally prohibited once TBIs are diagnosed. It’s important to keep activities light while promoting rest.

Cathedral Catholic High students showcase their art BY KRISTINA HOUCK The Guadalupe Center at Cathedral Catholic High School was recently transformed into an art gallery for the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Student Art Show May 19-24. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 375 art students all had at least one piece in the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important part for any artist to show their work to the community and get a feel for how others see it,â&#x20AC;? said art teacher Silvia Wiedmann, who helped launch the show when she started at the school 15 years ago. At that time, the school was called the University of San Diego High School. The school was renamed and relocated to 5555 Del Mar Heights Road in 2005. Inspired by Spaceship Earth, the geodesic sphere at Walt Disney Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Epcot theme park, senior Alexander Krikes constructed a geodesic half-dome out of paper called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Age of Discovery.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very rewarding,â&#x20AC;? Alexander said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really nice to sit back and watch people experience your piece.â&#x20AC;? Senior Anna Horne had three pieces on display, one of which was later sent to the fairgrounds. About 50 of the pieces were entered into the Student Showcase at the San Diego County Fair. Anna created paper flames, as well as a wire and plaster sculpture of a man playing a flute. The piece that she entered in the fair

was her independent project â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a wire and paper replica of the enchanted red rose from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beauty and the Beast.â&#x20AC;? In her second year in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art program, sophomore Belle Hilton had several drawings and paintings on display. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neat to show your parents and grandparents, as well as your friends what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on,â&#x20AC;? Belle said. Senior Megan Gless also had five drawings and paintings in the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to express yourself,â&#x20AC;? said Megan, who has taken art classes for two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives you an opportunity to show who you are, be creative and really learn about yourself.â&#x20AC;? Placing an emphasis on the arts, Cathedral Catholic is currently expanding its program. This year, the school launched its foundations course, an introductory visual arts class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important because art is everywhere,â&#x20AC;? said Alyssa Vallecorsa, who specializes in 3-D art and has taught art at the school for two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everybody needs to be exposed to art. It makes for a well-rounded person.â&#x20AC;? For more information about Cathedral Catholic, visit For photos online, visit www. PHOTOS/KRISTINA HOUCK

June 20-29 at The Lyceum Theatre in Horton Plaza. This musical is a high-voltage whipsmart comedy about coming of age, teen traumas and (barely) surviving middle school. Propelled by a pop/rock score by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County), this hilarious musical has it all. Local youth performing in the event include Riley Cavanaugh, Jordi Bertran, Oliva Hodson, Alex Kim, Alexis Maltzman, Jessica Maltzman, Stephen Read, Camden Rider, Ali Rohrbaugh, Shelby Sanborn. In 2009, CYC Theatre presented the San Diego premier of this new title, and is re-staging it with even more talent, production value and pizazz. This production features an impressive on-stage live band and an all-pro production team led by veteran award-winning actor/director Shaun T. Evans. San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most talented all-teen cast delicately navigates and delivers the ups and downs of turning 13. Evan Goldberg, a cool kid from New York City, suddenly moves to a small mid-western town following his parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; breakup. With his Bar Mitzvah around the corner, he finds himself struggling to fit in, find friends and survive all of the changes of adolescence in a strange new world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; flirtations, cell phones, cheerleaders, rumors, first kisses, cliques, boyfriend-stealing, bullies and crushes in this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;grown up musical about growing up.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Opa! Athens Market Café says go Greek, it’s good! BY KELLEY CARLSON fter growing up learning the family business, Vickie Anastasopoulos stayed true to her roots and branched out with her own restaurant in San Diego. She and her husband, Nick, opened Athens Market Café in Carmel Mountain Ranch — a sister restaurant to her sister Mary’s downtown San Diego location. At her Athens Market site, Vickie serves as chef, using the culinary skills she developed and honed at her parents’ hotel and restaurant in the village of Levidi, Greece. “She’s the brains behind the cooking,” Nick proudly emphasized. Nick aids in the operation of the restaurant, which was named a Small Business of the Year in California in 2011. He enjoys putting customers at ease — getting to know many of them by name — and occasionally breaks out in spontaneous Greek dancing alongside the staff. Patrons relish the authentic food that’s made from scratch, served in a charmingyet-casual atmosphere, as evidenced by readers’ polls in publications over the years. One of the most popular items is the Saganaki. Brandy is poured over imported


On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured ‘On The Menu’ restaurant at / menurecipes

■ This week’s recipe:

Athens Market Café’s Moussaka Greek cheese, which is then flambéed at the table, often drawing oohs and ahhs. Afterward, the melted cheese is cut into pieces and wrapped in pita slices. Other traditional starters that garner requests include the Spanakopita, a flaky filo pastry that’s filled with spinach, feta, herbs and spices; and Souvlaki, with pieces of chicken breast or beef tenderloin alternating with colorful grilled vegetables on a stick, kebab-style.

Guests who seek light, traditional fare will discover several salad offerings. Among them is the village-style Horiatiki Salad, with tomatoes, cucumbers, feta, olives, red onions, bell peppers, oregano and olive oil; and the Tabouleh Salad, a mixture of parsley, bulgur wheat, tomatoes, red onions, mint, lemon juice and olive oil. There are also pita wraps such as gyros, which are stuffed with beef and lamb or chicken, along with tomatoes, cucumbers,

onions, and cool-and-creamy tzatziki sauce. There are heavier, meat-based entrees, as well. The Pastitso is the Greek version of lasagna, a casserole-type dish with penne pasta and ground beef that has been seasoned and slowly simmered, while the Makaronada is a thick pasta topped with sautéed vegetables and grilled chicken. The Lamb Chops are prepared with the “right combination” of garlic, olive oil, oregano and other “secret” ingredients that involve Greek herbs and seasonings, Nick says. Another favorite dish of customers is the Moussaka, a baked dish of eggplant, zucchini and beef that is topped with béchamel sauce. It can be paired with a side of lentil soup, consisting of legumes simmered with tomatoes, onions, garlic and spices that create a flavorful, reddish-brown broth. Homemade desserts range from baklava to rice pudding. To further the ethnic experience, patrons can order imported bottled Greek beers (including the straw-colored lager Mythos) and wines (among them the Kourtaki Retsina of Attica, which has a pine aroma), or even Greek coffee.
