RSF School board reaches agreement with RSF Faculty Association BY KAREN BILLING The Rancho Santa Fe School District was able to settle its negotiations with the Rancho Santa Fe Faculty Association for the 2014-15 school year, ratifying the agreement at a special board meeting on June 12. The agreement reached is for a one-time, off-salary schedule payment equal to 2 percent of each employee’s placement on the salary schedule, paid in a lump sum. All classified and certificated staff will receive the increase, including all administrators except for Superintendent Lindy Delaney. Delaney said the district wanted to get the item on an agenda as soon as possible so the money could be added into the June paychecks. The agreement also increased the cap on the district contribution for health care benefits to $675 per month and represents a $151,122 adjustment to the budget. In March, the faculty association made its initial presentation to the school board, requesting a bump in salary, as there had not been an increase since 2009. In 2013 the teachers settled on what amounted to a one-year bonus for the current year of 2 percent of their current salary. In March, the association presented its belief that the district has the resources to improve employee compensation, providing a consistent salary increase. The board ratified the 2014-15 agreement in a 3-0 vote with one abstention. As he did last year, trustee Todd Buchner abstained from a vote. He has stated in the past that while he supports RSF teachers, he has issues with step and column, the salary schedule that determines teacher pay, and whether it is the right long-term decision for school districts. A representative of the RSF Faculty Association said they had no comment on the agreement.

Parents ask for change to school selection system ■ See a variety of society, school and community photos.


BY KAREN BILLING Parents Jennifer Hewitson and Britta Brewer graduated from San Dieguito when it was still just a high school, not an Academy. They had always hoped their children would follow in their footsteps and attend their neighborhood high school, too. But now, because of San Dieguito Union School District’s high school selection and lottery process, there is a chance that they won’t get that opportunity. Sixty-five students did not get into their school of choice — San Dieguito Academy — this year. Many of them live within walking or biking distance of the school. So a large group of Cardiff and Encinitas residents have banded together to ask the district to consider changing the selection system and making San Dieguito a boundary school. Parents filled the room at the June 5 school board meeting and inundated the district with phone calls and letters to prompt an agendized discussion at the Thursday, June 19, meeting and a community meeting on Monday, June 16. About 80 parents attended Monday’s June 16 meeting at Cardiff Elementary School. “Thank you for advocating for your kids and voicing your opinion,” Superintendent Rick Schmitt told the room, See SELECTION, page 24

RSF Association President’s Corner: Congratulations, thank you and accomplishments BY PHILIP WILKINSON, RANCHO SANTA FE ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT The recent RSF Association board election saw a great turnout with 1,544 members casting ballots, which represents 75 percent of registered voters. Congratulations to Ann Boon and Kim Eggleston for each winning a board seat for a three-year term, and thank you to Susan Callahan and Dominick Addario for their willingness to volunteer and serve their community. Outgoing board member, treasurer and chair of the Finance Committee Larry Spitcaufsky, deserves our gratitude and appreciation for his service to the community as does retiring Finance Committee member Jim Putnam for his service and valuable input over the past three years. Many thanks to these community leaders. As we close out this board term, I wanted to take this opportunity share the past year’s accomplishments of the RSF Association board and the Association’s dedicated staff: •Upgraded the entire Association’s IT software and accounting system. •Approved Golf Club membership rights for all condominium owners. •Launched a new RSF Association web site. •Approved a trial Farmers Market •Obtained approval for outside funding for one more RSF Association Patrol officer •Brought awareness to the issue of low percentage of registered voters, and through the outreach efforts of many individuals, voter registration increased from 62 percent to 77 percent in the three short months prior to the election. •Established a committee to review how to simplify the voter registration process. •Settled a significant lawsuit with no out-of-pocket cost to the RSF Association. •Approved Golf Club tree management and turf reduction plans. •Completed new trail and entrance to the sports field and the La Bajada entrance to the Covenant.

Philip Wilkinson •Replaced over 7,000 feet of trail fencing around the golf course. •Worked to bring expenditures in under budget this year and hold down costs in the upcoming fiscal year 2014/2015 budget. Grew reserve funding to $6 million and Community Enhancement Funds to $6 million. •Established a permanent Compensation Committee that has already: 1. Revised the employee vacation accrual policy (capping an employee’s maximum vacation accrued, or unused vacation, at two times their annual benefit) saving an estimated $1 million dollars over the next five years. 2. Changed the employee sick leave policy to be consistent across all operating divisions.

3. Engaged a new healthcare insurance broker and negotiated lower healthcare cost 4. Implemented a new Employee Healthcare Premium contribution policy saving an estimated $173,000 annually. •Establishing a new employee performance evaluation procedure and other best business practices to maintain employee accountability and EEOC compliance. •We have recently eliminated Executive Committee meetings and have limited discussion in executive session, to only sensitive employee and legal matters in order to provide additional transparency. Let’s continue to work together on solving the issues and challenges we face as a community, such as high-speed internet, controlling costs (which we have made great strides in doing so this past year) and providing those amenities that the membership wants. We need to continue to recruit qualified volunteers for these projects and keep the ideas, solutions, and recommendations flowing. There will always be ripples in this small pond, but if we didn’t have any ripples things would be stagnant and we wouldn’t be moving forward, would we?

New construction to continue this summer at Torrey Pines High School BY KAREN BILLING Construction work has begun at the front of Torrey Pines High School — the current dirt mound will be the future home of a new science building and a weight room. The projects are expected to be complete by August 2015. The former portable weight room facility near the sports fields has been removed and the new fourroom chemistry building will be built in its place. The plan includes four classrooms with a shared prep space where teachers can

The science classrooms and weight room are one of many of the district’s Prop AA projects, funded by the $449 million bond that passed in 2012. Long-term plans for Torrey Pines also include a new visual and performing arts center and a new gym, with the existing gym remodeled into a field house.

Accomplished RSF golfer verbally commits to attend Brown University in 2015 BY KAREN BILLING Rancho Santa Fe golfer Sasha Banks has used her talent on the greens to secure a promising next round — the 17-year-old recently verbally committed to attend Brown University (Providence, Rhode Island) in 2015. Sasha plays on the boys’ golf team at her high school, Escondido Charter High School, and was the captain and MVP of the team this year. She is a member of the USA Junior National Team and plays on the American Junior Golf Association Tour. Sasha has only been playing golf for four years, starting at age 14, after being introduced to the sport by her dad. She began her athletic career as a tennis player at age 7 and as a freshman at Torrey Pines High School; she played on the varsity squad and was the number two singles player on the CIF championship winning team. After transferring to Escondido Charter High School after her freshman year, she had to make a decision to play either tennis or golf. She picked golf. “It’s just a very different sport,” Sasha said. “I like the mental aspect of the game. It really challenges you to think in a different way and I feel like it’s helped me with life too.” Sasha said tennis is more of a reactionary sport, in golf she said you have to stay disciplined, positive and play as you go. Sasha plays golf every day, sometimes twice a day, at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. Her coach is Chris Mayson, director of instruction at Maderas Golf Club and west region director of the USA Junior National Team. She also takes lessons from Jacqui McSorely at Encinitas Ranch Golf Course. McSorely started the LPGA-USGA Girls Golf San Diego in North County and is also the coach of the women’s golf team at Point Loma Nazarene University. Sasha consistently shoots in the 70s, saying that her iron game is the strongest part of her game and that about 80 percent of her approach shots are on the green.

life would be like as a professional golfer. “That was one of the biggest experiences for me, it was so far away and I got to play against players from Australia, Japan and all over the world, and the person who won got to play in the Australian Open,” Sasha said. “It was such a great experience to play on such a nice course and meet so many people.” Some of the players she met she saw later in national tournaments — “It’s crazy how small the golf world is,” Sasha said. This summer, as she did last year, Sasha will play on the East Coast as part of the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Tour. Last year she placed in the top 10 in all of the AJGA qualifying tournaments and is now exempt from qualifying this year because she earned enough AJGA “stars.” This summer she’ll play in three tournaments in New York and Maryland and will travel to compete with the Junior America’s Cup in Walla Walla, Wash., in July. “I’m really excited for the summer,” said Sasha. Before she heads off for the tour in two weeks, she will play in the AJGA ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior tournament in Rancho Mirage on June 16. Academically, Sasha works hard in school and has never had a “B” in middle school, high school or the college courses she takes at Mira Costa College. At Mira Costa, she has taken calculus, chemistry and economics not only to pick up credits but also to prepare herself for the college experience. She said it’s definitely a relief to head into her senior year with her college plans locked. At Brown, she is not only looking to improve her golf game but also plans to go into pre-med or chemistry. “I really want to play professionally but if it doesn’t work out, I have a back-up plan as well,” Sasha said.

Rancho Santa Fe golfer Sasha Banks has committed to attend Brown University in 2015. Courtesy photo Her putting is where she has had to put in the most work to improve. “I love to just hit on the range and hit long balls, and it takes a lot of practice and experience to get good at the short game,” Sasha said. “My short game has definitely improved a lot in the last year.” In January, Sasha was part of the USA Junior National Team that traveled to China to compete in the Aaron Baddeley International Championship at Sheraton Qingyuan Lion Lake Country Club, one of two girls on the six-player squad.

Journalist brings experience as a fashion writer to new book ‘Terminal Life: A Suited Hero Novel’ BY KRISTINA HOUCK After developing the main character and plot at the Rancho Santa Fe Library for months, local author Richard Torregrossa is set to release his first thriller July 1. “Terminal Life: A Suited Hero Novel” follows Luke Stark, a Special Forces veteran, who returns home from his second tour in Afghanistan to learn that his wife has been murdered and his son has disappeared. Nicknamed “The Suited Hero” for his impeccable suit, Stark sets out on a path for revenge and a search for his son. The novel is written in a “very cinematic style,” said Torregrossa, who wrote most of the book at the library while living in Rancho Santa Fe. He currently resides in Scripps Ranch. “I wanted something fast-paced that conforms with all the conventions of the genre but transcends them at the same time,” he said. Originally from New York, Torregrossa first moved to the area in the late 1980s. A professional writer for more than 30 years, he has spent most of his career as a journalist with his work appearing in the New York Post, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, The Huffington Post and a number of other print and online publications. In the late 1990s, he found his niche, covering men’s and women’s fashion. “Fashion was really heating up at the end of the ‘90s. Those were the assignments I got and became interested in,” he explained. “I combined that when I was writing ‘Terminal Life: A Suited Hero Novel.’ Luke Stark is very, very meticulous about his suit, almost as if it has magical powers. It gave him a persona, sort of like a superhero has a costume.” Although “Terminal Life: A Suited Hero Novel” is Torregrossa’s first thriller, it isn’t his first book. He released his first book in 1996. “The Little Book of Wisdom” was his first of several illustrated books. In 2006, Torregrossa published the biography, “Cary Grant: A Celebration of Style,” with the foreword by Giorgio Armani and the afterword by Michael Kors. A first-degree black belt in martial arts and a fan of Ja-

of combined all my passions — martial arts, men’s wear and the suspense-thriller genre. It all came together in a nice, organic way.” Torregrossa will sign copies of his book at 7:30 p.m. July 2 at Warwick’s bookstore, located at 7812 Girard Avenue in La Jolla. Published by Oceanview Publishing, “Terminal Life: A Suited Hero Novel” will be available online July 1 on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

“I hope readers have very vivid entertainment but also recognize the serious themes,” Torregrossa said. “No matter what crisis you find yourself in, there’s always a road to redemption.” For more information about Torregrossa and “Terminal Life: A Suited Hero Novel,” visit

TOP PRODUCING AGENT “We are grateful for her every day...” “A patient of mine who ran a major real estate group in La Jolla recommended Janet Lawless Christ to list our home for sale. Janet responded to our phone calls and sat down with me, my wife, and Jeff (my son from LA who is an attorney). She did a beautiful job outlining how things would evolve and we went on. Fortunately, the realistic price she set for us worked. Fortunately, there was a condo 1.7 miles from our house with a wonderful view. Fortunately, Janet knew a good mover. Janet’s husband, son, and Janet helped us pack. We moved and the new buyer is happy with the house. Moving is difficult emotionally but with a warm, caring and knowledgeable person like Janet Lawless Christ around, it was do­able. We are grateful for her everyday.” ­ Donald J. Ritt, M.D.

BY JOE TASH As a girl growing up in the San Fernando Valley, Nan Sterman learned to garden with her grandfather and mother. “I just always loved the idea of putting seed in the ground and something coming up,� said the local resident. In 2013, she planted a different kind of seed, launching a gardening show on KPBS, called “A Growing Passion,� which has been picked up for a third season, which begins next April. The half-hour show, which she produces with her partner, Marianne Gerdes, airs on Thursday nights and repeats on Saturday mornings on KPBS. It covers a variety of topics, from chaparral and native plants, to food justice and water-wise landscaping. Future episodes will focus on such subjects as insects and growing citrus. Sterman, who hosts the show, relies on both her pasNan Sterman sion for sustainable, water-wise gardening in Southern CaliforCourtesy photo nia’s Mediterranean climate, and her educational background, which includes graduate degrees in marine botany and instructional design. Her target audience is anyone interested in gardening, even those who don’t regularly take to the dirt with a hand trowel or hoe. “Lots of people are armchair gardeners,� she said. Her goal is to educate and entertain, while providing access to places that most people wouldn’t ordinarily see. In one episode, she starts at the horse barns at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, where used straw is gathered up, taken to a mushroom farm in Escondido and turned into compost. Once the farm is finished with the compost, it is given away free to the public for use in home gardens. “I want to empower (viewers) to understand the world around us and how to work with it and make it work for them,� she said. One of the keys to being a successful gardener — whether a planter of ornamental landscaping or a vegetable garden — is to understand the climate where the garden is located, said Sterman. San Diego is one of five regions of the world with a Mediterranean climate, characterized by rain in the fall, winter and spring, followed by hot, dry summers. Also, our soil is lean, without a lot of nutrients. Therefore, gardeners need to pick plants native to Southern California, or Mediterranean areas, that can tolerate the hot, dry summers and don’t need a lot of watering, Sterman said. Vegetable gardens will require soil additives and regular watering, she said. Sterman has published two books, “California Gardener’s Guide, Vol. II,� and “Waterwise Plants for the Southwest,� and her third book will be out next year. She has also written articles for a variety of publications, including Sunset, Better Homes and Gardens, the Los Angeles Times and Organic Gardening, and writes a monthly column for UT San Diego. Sterman’s research as a graduate student at UC Santa Barbara focused on phytoplankton, a one-celled seaweed that is the food source for a variety of marine life, from whales to jellyfish. “I was studying their photosynthesis, how they make food from sunshine. That’s the essential function that powers our world,� she said. In a lab across the hall, she met Curt Wittenberg, who was studying molecular biology. Wittenberg, who became her husband, conducts basic cancer research at the Scripps Research Center. Sterman decided that she preferred communicating and teaching over lab research, and completed a fellowship with CNN’s science reporting unit, before going back to school to earn a master’s degree in instructional design, which she used to create educational programs for different clients, including companies, museums, zoos and aquariums. Along with her books, articles and TV show, Sterman also designs gardens for clients, and one of her designs was recently published in a book, “Groundbreaking Food Gardens,� by Niki Jabbour. For more information about Sterman and her show, “A Growing Passion,� visit www. Full episodes of the show can also be viewed on the web site.

Students learn about the lagoon restoration.

R. Roger Rowe School third grade students donate to new Birdwing Open Air Classroom Third graders at R. Roger Rowe School recently collected $200 in coins and donated the money to the new Birdwing Open Air Classroom along the San Dieguito Lagoon as an “Act of Kindness” for the RSF Education Foundation Kind to Core campaign this year. A ranger recently taught the third grade students about the lagoon restoration they are working on at the new Birdwing Classroom as part of the San Dieguito River Conservancy. A grand opening was held May 13 for the new Birdwing Open Air Classroom. The San Dieguito River Park’s 80-seat amphitheater features rows of concrete benches covered by panels of perforated stainless steel. The outdoor facility overlooks scenic views of the carefully restored wetlands. The roughly $500,000 classroom was constructed with a $340,000 grant from the county, which kicked off the project. The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that supports the River Park and education, raised more than $170,000 in donations.

RSF Children’s Library ‘Pause to Read’ summer program offers a variety of activities BY KAREN BILLING Rancho Santa Fe Children’s Library is hoping that kids will “Pause to Read� this summer as part of its annual summer reading program. The program kicked off on June 5 and lasts through July 31 with a fully packed schedule of free activities, encouraging kids to read anything they can get their hands on. To participate, kids just have to sign up and choose their reading goal — 10 hours or 10 books. Every time they reach that goal they can earn a prize and go through the program as many times as they can. Additionally, every 10 books or 10 hours read earns a raffle ticket for bigger prizes that will be raffled off at the end of the program’s Ice Cream Social celebration on Aug. 1 at 2:30 p.m. “The goal is to keep them reading all summer long,� said Laurie Knodle, children’s librarian. “There’s always time to take a break with a book in their hands.� This year’s summer reading program’s theme is “Pause to Read� and Knodle has taken great care to decorate the library for summer — carving out special nooks for children to take a moment and read. She built a space ship for kids to read in “space�; created a jungle with animals hanging from vines; and put a few Adirondack chairs in front of a campfire made out of paper to read “outdoors.� In the teen section, there will be beach chairs and towels in a corner to read at the

“beach.� Knodle has also created a full schedule of activities for the summer: Movie Mondays at 1 p.m., pre-school storytimes on Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.; Thursday and Saturday crafts such as beading, spin art and sand art; toddler storytime at 10:30 a.m. on Fridays; and games such as Wii and bingo on Fridays. There are also special author visits and book signings on June 21 with Salina Yoon, author of “Found� at 2 p.m., and on July 15 at 2 p.m. with Jenny Craig, the author of “I Believe in Genevieve.� Kids can attend the John Abrams Animal Magic Show on June 25 at 2 p.m. or the Buster Balloon Show on June 30 at 2 p.m. “There is something going on every single day,� Knodle said. She encourages families to put the link to the RSF Library Guild website on their smart phones so that wherever they are they can see what’s happening at the library and swing on by. Knodle hopes it becomes a habit, families coming to the library to check out books, receive a prize for their reading, participate in an activity and read even more books. “It’s an inexpensive way to keep kids busy in a great way over the summer,� Knodle said. As cursive writing is no longer being taught in schools, the summer reading program will also hold a “Pause for Penman-

Sydney Helfand, Kaiya DeHaan and Olivia Schleicher led the way for the Avengers. “The Avengers were a formidable opponent and gave us a very tough time, especially in the first half,” said GojiGirls Coach Ray Faltinsky, “But we hung tough and hit some key shots in the second half to pull away. I am really proud of both teams!” More than 100 girls in first through sixth grades participated in the Junior Dunkers basketball league this spring. Players were separated into 15 teams and placed in Instructional, Rookie, or Star divisions based on age.

We are very thankful to the many families who participate, as well as our volunteer coaches for their dedication and our sponsors for their generous support. The involvement and support of the Rancho Santa Fe community is what makes this league so enjoyable.” Coach Mike and his staff will run three Basketball Skills Camps at the Community Center this summer during the weeks of July 7-11, July 28-Aug. 1, and Aug. 18-22.

Fire season tips for horse owners Sheriff’s Department offers summer safety tips BY RANCHO SANTA FE ASSOCIATION DIRECTOR ROCHELLE PUTNAM AND THE RSF FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT The fires a few weeks ago were a reminder that this is going to be a hot, dry and dangerous summer. We’ve put together some ideas for horse owners to assist with evacuation planning in the event of fire. Some things to keep in mind before you begin planning: 1) you may not end up with your horses in a stall where water and hay are readily available 2) if fires are anywhere in your area, it’s too late to begin running around filling your tank up with gas and getting supplies — you might get shut out if they close the roads and traffic will be snarled anyway, slowing you down and frustrating you 3) when it’s time to go, Go! Don’t hesitate. Furthermore, if you feel threatened, don’t wait for an evacuation order. In Advance: If you have a truck and trailer, make sure that you keep your gas tank full. Make sure you know how to hook up your trailer quickly and consider putting a “hook up and load checklist� in the glove box in case you are in a hurry and frazzled. Your horse(s) should load willingly so if you don’t haul them regularly, set up time to practice loading with someone who knows what they are doing. If you don’t have a truck and trailer but have horses on your property, it is your responsibility to coordinate with someone who can help you and keep their phone number(s) handy. If you are at a facility

where many horses will be hauled together, make sure your horse has ID, either on the halter or you can use a sharpie to write your phone number on their hooves. If a professional hauler is loading your horse, get out of the way or you will likely slow the process down — a good hauler can usually load a horse quickly and confidently. Most important for horse owners is water. A horse drinks 6-10 gallons a day. It’s important to realize that many facilities fill up early in a fire situation, and you may be in a place with no access to fresh water. Buy 5 gallon containers of water at the grocery store or some empty containers that you can fill with tap water and keep on hand in case you end up somewhere without easy access to water for your horses for a period of time. You should prepare horse information sheet(s) in advance. Have a sheet ready to tape or staple on a door or stall for your horse(s) which includes: your horse’s name, description, and key contact information (cell phones, veterinarian), and feeding/ medication information. Santa Ana Conditions If a Santa Ana is forecast, keep your keys in the car/truck and the tank full. Consider hooking up your trailer to be ready to go on short notice. Gather the following items. Horse stuff • Information sheet for your horse(s) (see above) • Buckets for hay and water, muck bucket, rake • Hay, water • Calmer such as EQ Gold Paste See HORSE, page 28

Summer provides the perfect opportunity to spend lots of time outside. People take advantage of the sunny weather to do outdoor projects, take their families to fun places, relax and keep cool. For criminals, however, it’s a very busy time of year. It can be easy to forget to close a door or window, but if they are left open it creates an easy opportunity for a burglar. Criminals focus on easy targets; make it difficult for them to choose you. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department recently released some tips to keep yourself, your family, your home and your valuables safe. At Home • Always lock your doors and windows especially at night and when you’re away • Close your garage and pet doors • Secure ladders and tools so they can’t be used to gain entry into your home • Be wary of anyone who approaches your front door and don’t let them take up too much of your time. Criminals work together; one will come to your door and distract you while the other sneaks into your home. Ask for an ID of a utility person. • Be a good neighbor, lookout for one another. • Excessive dog barking could be a sign of an intruder and may warrant a call to the Sheriff’s Department. • Report suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s non-emergency line (858) 565-5200 • Sheriff’s Crime Prevention Specialists offer a free security check to show vulnerabilities in your home. Call your local Station or Substation. For more information, visit When going on vacation • Lock up your home, activate your alarm • Don’t share your plans on social media • Hold the delivery of your mail and newspaper or ask a trusted friend to pick them up for you • Buy a timer for your lights and set them in a random pattern • Ask a neighbor to occasionally park in your driveway • Sign up for a FREE vacation check so Sheriff’s Senior Volunteer Patrol (SVP) members can keep an eye on your home. Visit Pool Safety The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death for children ages one to four. Drownings and injuries are highest in warm weather months, from May to August. These simple steps can save lives: • Keep children within arm’s reach at all times in and around the pool • Assign an adult water watcher • Fence your pool with self-closing or self-latching gates • Install pool and gate alarms See SAFETY, page 28

Local company to launch streaming video service for extreme sports on June 21 BY KRISTINA HOUCK From how-to videos, to feature-length documentaries, fans of extreme sports can soon have unlimited access to action sports and outdoor entertainment at the push of a button. Vaporvue, a new subscription-based streaming video service, launches June 21, the first day of summer. “We’re trying to provide the most comprehensive, diverse library of extreme sports content on the web,� said Ira Opper, a 32-year resident of Solana Beach and owner of Opper Sports Production, the local company behind the new online video platform. “That’s our goal.�

Launched by Solana Beach-based Opper Sports Productions, Vaporvue is a new subscription-based streaming video service. Courtesy photo By working directly with filmmakers, Opper Sports Productions has compiled more than 1,000 movies, television series, documentaries, and travel and informational videos about surfing, skiing, snowboarding, climbing, paddling, motorcycle racing, mountain biking, and other fitness, out-

door and adventure-related content. Videos will be available to stream on Internetconnected devices, including smart TVs, phones, tablets, media players and computers. “You can access our content on pretty much anything, anywhere, anytime,� said Opper, who will also have about 150 of his own titles on Vaporvue. Located in Solana Beach, Opper Sports Productions is an Emmy Award-winning digital broadcast television production and Internet development company. Since 1982, the company has produced extreme sports videos, documentaries and television programs for national and inter-

national cable networks, including ESPN, Fox Sports and National Geographic Adventure. In 2007, Opper Sports Productions launched the Surf Network, a collection of surf videos on demand. The company later released three additional platforms, one centered on snow, another on moto and the last on fitness. Then Opper and cofounder Dustin Hood decided to create a comprehensive “Netflix for the extreme sports world.� “We’ve been in the business forever, so we’ve seen the transition from VHS tapes to DVDs. Being involved in technology like we are, we knew it

wasn’t going to last forever,� Opper said. “We’ve been able to grow downloads, rentals, streaming, and now, with Vaporvue, we have probably the most comprehensive and technically challenging website we’ve created yet.� “I’m very proud of it,� added Hood, who developed the site. “Being able to build something that people can use on a daily basis is pretty cool. It’s not just a website; it’s a service that people can really make use out of.� A subscription to Vaporvue costs $9.99 per month. The site goes live June 21.

5 Annual Sidewalk Local Arch Academy students from Carmel Valley and Rancho Santa Fe traveled to San Francisco on June 7 to participate in the annual Alcatraz Sharkfest. Courtesy


Local Arch Academy students from Carmel Valley and Rancho Santa Fe traveled to San Francisco on June 7 to test their strength and endurance in the annual Alcatraz Sharkfest swim from Alcatraz Island to Aquatic Park near Fisherman’s Wharf. The students swam in 57-degree water for 1.5 miles from a ferry to the shore. Arch Academy’s Zombie Club swimmers from Carmel Valley included Cardell Ackell, Matthew Georgy, Kaylee Kussman, Lauren Weinreb and Betzi Lindberg. Swimmers from Rancho Santa Fe included Austin Drawdy and Andrew Golub. Fifteen-year-old Cardell made the crossing in the fastest time of the group, in 40 minutes. Arch Academy school founder Cheryl Zak and Assistant Principal Dominic Manente also swam with the students. The Arch Academy is a kindergarten through 12th grade school specializing in motivating students who struggle in general school population because of ADD, ADHD, autism and behavior issues. The school’s philosophy is that each student is expected to achieve extraordinary things to the best of their ability no matter their challenge and the Zombie Club is an example of that. Zombie Club members train for long-distance swims throughout the year, meeting at the Santee YMCA for 6 a.m. weight and swim training. They also meet once a week at La Jolla Cove for ocean swim training, working up to swimming more than four miles to the Scripps Pier and back. The next big challenge for Zombie Club swimmers is a timed relay to Catalina. After that, the students will begin training to swim the English Channel next year. To learn more, visit

which was full of parents and SDUHSD staff members. “We are in the business of listening to moms and dads and students.” The board’s discussion at the June 19 meeting will address concerns and comments and how the district should move forward. A task force could be formed to look at the issue. Schmitt said the district really has three options: to remain a mix of schools of choice and boundary schools; to make all high schools boundary schools; or to make all schools schools of choice. Parental concerns about nonboundary schools have risen, as no students were accepted from the wait lists at San Dieguito or Canyon Crest Academies this year. Neither school has any room left. “We have seen an increase in the numbers of students that are choosing the academies,” said Michael Grove, the district’s associate superintendent of educational services. He noted there was a big jump this year, with almost 60 percent of students choosing academies.

“The increase in the size of the schools is because of the increase in demand.” Jennifer Leslie is a parent of one of the 65 students for whom there was no room. She lives seven houses away from the school. She walks her kids to Ocean Knolls School every day, but now her oldest will have to be at the bus stop at 6:30 a.m. to be bused to La Costa Canyon, a transportation cost she must incur. As a single parent, she’s not sure how after-school activities like sports will work without transportation. “We appreciate having a choice,” Leslie said, “but effectively, my daughter is being displaced and her choice has been removed.” Grove gave a history about how the high school selection process and nonboundary schools came to be. When building La Costa Canyon High School in 1995, the district took a look at the boundaries for the new school and saw it would be creating a population at LCC that would be 95 percent Caucasian; San Dieguito would be 33 percent Latino. To create a balance of diversity between the schools, they came up with the idea of making San Dieguito an

academy — “a school of choice.” When San Dieguito opened as an academy in 1996, it had 976 students. This fall, there will be 1,600 students. In 2004, when the district was looking to open Canyon Crest Academy, Torrey Pines High School had 3,600 students. The district had the same discussion about boundaries and decided to duplicate the success of SDA as a choice school, rather than redraw boundaries. CCA had 369 students when it opened one grade in 2004. That number reached 1,200 in 2008 with a full campus, and now it is the district’s second-biggest high school, with 1,955 students coming in the fall. Grove said the district’s goal is to get all ninth-grade students into their choice schools. But with the school selection lottery process, SDUHSD is simply following the law. The Open Enrollment Act of 1993 was enacted because at the time, students who wanted to attend another school did not have that legal right. The law states that districts must allow transfers as long as there is space and, if demand exceeds capacity, the district

must conduct an unbiased lottery. The law allows only three exceptions to the random lottery: if a student faces a threat of bodily harm at one school; if a student is the child of an employee; or if a sibling already attends the school. SDUHSD uses only the sibling exception. The law does not allow geographic proximity to be a priority. Grove said capacity at SDA is realistically about 1,600 and they typically accept 25 to 50 more students than that to allow for attrition. Since 2006, he said, 98 percent of high school students have enrolled in their school of choice. For that 2 percent not admitted, however, “it creates a great deal of anxiety,” he said. Grove said 60 percent of enrollment at SDA comes from Encinitas, 23.2 percent from La Costa, 12 percent from Cardiff, 2.3 percent from Solana Beach, and less than 1 percent from Rancho Santa Fe and Del Mar. One parent pointed out that if there were boundaries, taking away the kids from the south would represent the 60 local children who did not get into SDA this year.

The district has increased capacity at both campuses to accommodate increased demand, and the goal is to continue to increase the cap on enrollment with scheduling and facility improvements provided by Prop AA funding. In discussions with the principal at San Dieguito, Grove said the top reason why students choose the academy is the four-by-four schedule and the flexibility it offers. “La Costa Canyon and Torrey Pines High School are in discussions about a change in the bell schedule in the 2015-16 year to draw more students to those schools and decrease demand at the academies,” Grove said. LCC has plenty of capacity. At one time it had 2,700 students; now it has 1,950. Grove said the goal should be creating programs that will attract students to the boundary schools and restore balance among the four high schools. Parents argued that the situation is different at SDA and LCC than TPHS and CCA — Torrey Pines is a couple of miles away from CCA, and La Costa and San Dieguito are about six miles apart.

Parents noted that surrounding areas have changed and conditions for transporting children long distances have changed. It’s best for the students, the community and the environment to keep them in their neighborhood school. Parent Joel Rump said some parents are facing about 150 hours a week in travel time, a 30-minute round trip every day — versus a five- to 10-minute walk without spending money on fuel. Parent Nancy Frazier said the ability for kids to walk and bike to school gives them a taste of independence, forges a sense of community and promotes health and wellness. “It means a lot to us to be at the neighborhood school and not to be all over town and spend $700 on bus rides,” said Hewitson, who lives four blocks from San Dieguito. Britta Brewer said the importance of having her children at a school closer to home came into sharper focus after the wildfires last month. “Over the last 20 years I’ve watched the district acSee SELECTION, page 30

BY RANDI CRAWFORD Knowing that our child’s graduation was fast approaching, I wanted to write something about the experience. At the beginning of the year, I went to our school’s Open House and silently wept most of the night because this was our daughter’s last year in this school. She basically grew up with this community of people that have become like family to us. I couldn’t stop thinking about how sad I was going to be when the day finally came that she would move on to high school. It was just yesterday that I sent her off to pre-pre-school at the tender age of 2. What was I thinking? When she was only 4 years old, the school told me that she had mastered everything and was ready for kindergarten. My husband and I had nothing to compare it to, and she was our oldest, so we went with their advice. This is funny: I remember that we had a birthday party for her within the first two weeks of starting school, and she received birthday cards that read, “Happy 6th Birthday.” It took my husband and me a few moments to understand that she was the only child who was turning 5 years old. Our daughter is (and has always been), the youngest kid in her class. So many people analyze the pros and the cons of holding a child back, but we never did. We took the advice from her preschool and sent her straight to kindergarten. We both worked full time and, frankly, we never gave it a second thought. Fast forward to this past weekend and, here she is, 13 years old, and she just graduated from the eighth grade. She’s officially going to high school in the fall, and that’s something that I always thought happened to other people. Now I’m one of them. Crazy, I know. But here’s the strange part. On the day of her graduation, I wasn’t emotional, crying or freaking out. In fact, she was so happy that it made me happy. I looked at her with so much pride that crying wasn’t an option. To know me is to know that I worry about things that haven’t even happened and may never happen. I create scenarios in my head and then I worry about them, and they are all fiction! Don’t ask — it’s a terrible quality, and one that I need to work on. I went to a party with my husband the night after the graduation, and heard varying degrees about how scary high school can be. People all like to say things like, “Oh Randi, there’s sex and drugs everywhere, you just have to hope you’ve done your job.” Or you might talk to two parents (of the same child), and find they each have a completely different take on what it’s really like when your kid starts high school. One parent will tell you the horrors, while the other tells you that it’s the greatest thing that’s happened to their family. I’m confused. Last year, I spoke with a good friend whose daughter had moved on from our school to high school with so much grace. I asked her how she was dealing with it. She looked at me and said, “Randi, this is life! Would you prefer that she was held back? You want her to move forward. Stop worrying about what could happen — it’s not going to do you any good.” I walked away from that conversation thinking that she was a lunatic. How could she think that I wouldn’t worry that my daughter was going to high school (in a year)? Fast forward to this past weekend. I saw this same mom and reminded her about our conversation. She also had remembered it and asked me how I was dealing with the process. I suppose she was right. It’s surreal that I’m old enough to have a kid going off to high school in the fall, but here we are. We can’t worry about what hasn’t happened, or try to think about everything that could happen. This is life and it’s full of change and risk and opportunity, and as I type this I’m getting nauseated. OMG, I have a kid going to high school in the fall! Are any of you here yet? Email me at

commodate growing communities with La Costa, Del Mar and Solana Beach. We’re left behind, in a sense,” Brewer said. “Old Encinitas and Cardiff are not allowed the choice to attend their local public school. It’s time to give us the same treatment as other communities. We want the choice to keep our kids near us.” Several parents proposed that perhaps the problem was with the law and that they should lobby to change it to include geographic proximity as a priority. “The legislation was more about if you didn’t want to go to your neighborhood school,” said parent Danica Edelbrock. “But I want my kids to be able to attend a school within walking distance.” Some parents spoke in favor of high school selection. Paul Abel said his children have been different from each other since day one, and he likes that they are able to choose where they would fit best. “I drive my kids way too much, but I am willing to drive for my kids,” Abel said. “I appreciate the choice we have, and it encourages

schools to be unique and have their own unique culture.” He wondered whether the time and resources spent to redraw boundaries would truly benefit students. Grove said varying factors must be considered with all the district’s options for solutions. For example, the ethnic/racial/socioeconomic diversity of the campuses, Mello-Roos funding, redrawing middle school boundaries, and where the high school boundaries would be. There are also program implications — for example, if the district isn’t offering different schools to students, would it have to offer football at San Dieguito? “The unique culture of SDA may be lost over time if it is a boundary school,” said Grove, who used to be principal at the school. He said these are discussions that they need to have as a community, a big discussion with all 12,300 families in the district. He believes a task force will help solicit feedback and generate a community dialogue. “In the meantime we continue to find as many ways as we can to get students into their school of first choice,” Grove said. The parents said all they


are asking for is fairness. “We understand change will be difficult and long, but we know it will benefit all of the district, not most of the district,” Brewer said.

‘Mexican Seas’ photo exhibit opens June 28 at Birch Aquarium Some of the world’s most diverse and magnificent marine life is located not in the Australian coral reefs or off the coast of Indonesia, but in the waters of San Diego’s neighbor to the south, Mexico. From shallow mangrove and kelp forests, to deep black coral gardens and seamounts, Octavio Aburto has been photographing these remarkable ecosystems and the sea life residing there ever since he was a student earning his bachelor’s degree. He worked on one of the most important binational research projects between Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, and the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Sur (UABCS). Opening at Birch Aquarium June 28, “Mexican Seas/ Mares Mexicanos” features the awe-inspiring photography and fascinating research of Aburto, now assistant professor of marine ecology at the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. The exhibit will take visitors on an intimate photographic journey to four biodiversity hot spots in Mexican waters and offers stunning views of the marine life that thrives in these protected areas. His photographs, and the corresponding conservation stories, capture “the art of science” and seek to inspire ocean stewardship. Birch Aquarium at Scripps, at 2300 Expedition Way, La Jolla, is the public exploration center for world-renowned Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. Call 858-534-3474; visit

Top dancers perform at City Ballet of San Diego’s spring fundraiser in RSF

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANE Y. WELCH Manicured grounds, a majestic fountain, and an architectural marvel of an estate-home provided a romantic Europeanstyle venue on Sunday, June 8, for City Ballet of San Diego’s annual spring fundraiser. The estate home and grounds of Tommie and Dr. Jack Wasserman in Rancho Santa Fe’s “The Meadows” struck just the right sophisticated note for the 131 guests who attended the afternoon’s event. The high point came when City Ballet’s principal dancers performed on a portable dance floor laid on the Wassermans’ tennis court. Ariana Samuelsson, Geoff Gonzalez, Erica Alvarado and Stephano Candreva performed selections of Elizabeth Rowe Wistrich’s original choreography set to the music of Mozart’s “Requiem.” In addition, they performed the famous pas de deux from Don Quixote, “which our company will perform – with full orchestra – in its entirety next season at the Spreckels Theater,” said Wistrich. Twenty-plus dancers, who comprise City Ballet’s talent, work intensely through a 26- week season. This year marks the company’s 21st season. It performs four major productions – with 20 programs – annually at Spreckels Theatre. Rehearsals take place at the City Ballet School located at 941 Garnet Avenue in Pacific Beach; it provides a full classical ballet curriculum for children, adults and pre-professionals. In addition, the dancers perform and teach throughout the year in city schools in the San Diego area. The company – under the dual artistic direction of Elizabeth and Steven Wistrich, former Boston Ballet and Stuttgart Ballet

dancers – is famed as the largest presenter in Southern California of the works of master choreographer and founder of the New York City Ballet George Balanchine, a rare privilege granted by the George Balanchine Trust and Foundation. “[They] decide whether your company will be granted permission to dance his ballets. You have to demonstrate that your company is performing at a high enough quality and level of excellence in dancing,” said Steven Wistrich. “It is an honor that City Ballet has earned their respect.” Proceeds from the spring fundraiser benefit City Ballet’s education programs, including: “Discover a Dancer” which provides free year-round ballet classes and dancewear for at-risk children; “Ballet Goes to School” which provides special performances during school hours for San Diego’s school children; and the “Summer Intensive,” which provides career-track students the opportunity to study with international ballet stars culminating with a free public performance at the Spreckels Theatre. The event showcased the sale of designer clothing and accessories, a silent auction, and an opportunity drawing featuring Seaport Village Shops, The Marriott Marquis, the San Diego Symphony Summer POPS and the Kona Kai San Diego Resort and Marina. The event raised just over $30,000, “which is the most ever for our spring fundraiser,” said Lauren Scott, special events coordinator and fundraiser chair. The funds raised at the spring event meant that City Ballet could afford to offer scholarships for its Summer Intensive program, July 28 though Aug. 15, with famed dancers Paloma Herrera, Maria Kowroski

fundraiser is critical in order to help us reach our goals,” Wistrich stressed. John Nettles, conductor for the City Ballet Orchestra, with his string quartet, provided the afternoon’s live musical backdrop with a medley of classical pieces with some Beatles sprinkled in. Wild Thyme catered with gourmet food and wines, and Michele Coulon Dessertier of La Jolla provided desserts. “All in all, a lovely way to spend an afternoon in Rancho Santa Fe,” said Elizabeth Wistrich.

Globe’s Summer Shakespeare Festival opens with ‘Othello’ BY DIANA SAENGER Actor Richard Thomas, Iago in “Othello,” the first show of the Globe’s 2014 Summer Shakespeare Festival, calls “Othello” “one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies in the theater.” In addition to his role, Thomas said he’s eager to work again with Barry Edelstein, the Old Globe Artistic Director making his outdoor directorial debut in The Old Globe’s Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. Thomas played the role of Timon in “Timon of Athens,” directed by Edelstein at New York’s The Public Theatre in 2011. “I’m very excited to be here at the Old Globe and with Barry,” Thomas said. “Barry is a dynamic director with his own vision that’s strong, artistic, wieldy and productive.” Thomas has an impressive resume in television, stage touring. Born in New York City in 1951, he started acting at the age of seven. His parents, Richard and Barbara Thomas, were dancers with the New York City Ballet and owners of the New York School of Ballet. His first role was his Broad-

Thomas (“An Enemy of the People,” Broadway’s “Race,” “Richard II,” “Richard III,” “Hamlet”) went on to make more than 105 film and TV appearances as well as many roles on the theatrical stage. He appeared in more than 20 film and TV roles before earning an Emmy Award for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series as “John Boy” in the Walton’s TV series that ran 1972-1981. One character he’s longed to play is Iago.

“Iago is a challenging character but a big reward for me to play,” Thomas said. “Shakespeare is the greatest writer in the English language. His writing is smart and complex but elemental with all kinds of passion. He puts his teeth down where he can get at the core of the story.” Thomas currently has the role of Agent Frank Gaad on FX’s “The Americans.” “I feel very lucky to have so many performing opportunities, but theater is my greatest pleasure,” he said. “Playing some of the classic roles like Iago is a great privilege.” Joining Thomas in the lead roles are Blair Underwood as Othello and Kristen Connolly as Desdemona. Underwood is an awardwinning actor/writer/director/producer. He received two Golden Globe Award nominations, 10 NAACP Image Award nominations with six wins. His theater credits include his one-man show “IM4: From the Mountaintop to Hip Hop,” New York Shakespeare Festival’s

“Measure for Measure,” and the Broadway revival of Tennessee Williams’s “A Streetcar Named Desire,” which garnered Underwood a 2012 Drama League Distinguished Performance nomination. He’s appeared in many films and TV roles. Connolly worked with Barry Edelstein on “King Lear, All’s Well That Ends Well,” and “Measure for Measure,” at The Public Theater/New York Shakespeare Festival. She had a role in the History Channel miniseries “Houdini” and the Netflix’s series “House of Cards.” If you go: “Othello,” 8 p.m. June 22-July 27 at The Old Globe’s Lowell Davies Festival Theatre, 1363 Old Globe Way, Balboa Park.

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.

‘El Henry’ brings Chicano-style Shakespeare to outdoor stage BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Last fall, you might have seen actor/writer Herbert Siguenza at San Diego REPertory Theatre in his one-man show “A Weekend with Pablo Picasso.” This month, he’s bringing a new play to SILO, an outdoor space in the up-and-coming East Village neighborhood called Makers Quarter, where life is still a little rough around the edges. Siguenza, a founding member of the comedy troupe Culture Clash, moved his family here from Los Angeles two years ago, and is making good on his post-Picasso promise to make this town his own. “El Henry,” a sort of “East Side Story” based on Shakespeare’s Henry IV, is a futuristic piece that takes place in a “post-gringo” California, where Chicanos rule. It’s a world premiere billed as Shakespeare for the 21st Century, the latest in La Jolla Playhouse’s Without Walls (WoW) series of sitespecific plays that began with “Susurrus” at San Diego Botanic Gardens in 2011. This time, LJP is producing in association with the REP, where Siguenza completed an 18-month residency in 2013. Here’s the story, which Shakespeare might have a bit of difficulty recognizing: It’s 30 years from now in Aztlan City, a run-down metropolis formerly known as San Diego, where corruption is rampant and violent barrio families rule the streets. El Hank (King Henry) finds his street kingdom threatened by El Tomas (Thomas Percy, Earl of Worcester) and his hot-headed nephew El Bravo (Hotspur). He seeks the help of his so-far disappointing son and heir, El Henry (Prince Hal), who has been spending most of his time with a bunch of thieves and drunkards headed by the fat, lazy, boastful but jovial Fausto (Falstaff). The cast features Siguenza as Fausto, with Kinan Valdez as El Bravo and Lakin Valdez as El Hen-

Brothers Lakin Valdez (left) and Kinan Valdez in rehearsal. Photo by Mia Fiorella ry, the someday-to-be Henry V. They are the sons of Luis Valdez, the groundbreaking writer of “Zoot Suit” known as the father of Chicano theater, and they’re part of El Teatro Campesino, the Northern California troupe he founded in 1965. Siguenza said he came up with the idea for “El Henry” at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival four years ago, when he was understudying roles in the original “Henry IV.” “I never did get to go on, but I did get familiar with the story,” he said. “Family, loyalty, honor — that’s what the play’s about. And I thought: those are the same themes that apply to Chicano gangs. So I kept the story intact and just changed the place, the times, and the language.” “El Henry” translates Shakespearean cadences into the edgy contemporary poetry of English and Spanish street slang. The soldiers use futuristic weapons and their fight scenes have been choreographed by Edgar Landa, an awardwinning fight director from LA who’s been responsible for authentic-looking battles in many Shakespearean plays. Except for Landa and the Valdez brothers, the company is all from San Diego; Siguenza believes in using local talent, himself included. “In the past few years, all my dream roles have been coming to fruition,” he said. “I played Big Daddy in ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ in Alaska, Picasso at the REP, and now Falstaff here — all larger-than-life people. ‘El Henry’ is my biggest project yet, and Sam Woodhouse (‘El Henry’ director and artistic director of the REP) really knows how to put on a spectacle. I’m so happy to be doing this.” If you go: El Henry (adapted from Shakespeare’s “Henry IV, Part I”), written by Herbert Siguenza, directed by Sam Woodhouse, 7:30 p.m. through June 29 at SILO at Makers Quarter, 753 15th Street, San Diego.

Supporters gather for launch of local author’s book of memoir poems ‘Chop Suey and Apple Pie’ BY DIANE Y. WELCH The atmosphere was buzzing with excitement as friends, supporters and aficionados of the written word gathered on June 11 at the Parish Hall at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar to celebrate the launch of “Chop Suey and Apple Pie,” a book of memoir poems authored by local resident Mai-Lon Gittelsohn. The book is a collection of Gittelsohn’s poetry that represents her life as a fourth generation ChineseAmerican. The 20 pieces, which according to one fan, “embody a beautifully expressed selection of memories that contain and share the flavors of this wonderful culture,” give a first-hand account of her growing up in Oakland and Berkeley and the diverse area of El Cerrito where Gittelsohn’s parents ran their restaurant “Violet Wong’s Dining Room.” The couple introduced Chinese food — such as the popular Chop Suey dish created especially for the American palate — to the Bay Area locals in 1945, said Gittelsohn. But Albert and Violet Wong understood their customers and were considered culinary pioneers when they offered American food, too. “My mother prepared the Chinese food and my father the American food,” said Gittelsohn. One of the most popular dishes on the menu was apple pie. At the book signing event Gittelsohn offered both to her guests after a rare showing of a segment of a 1916 silent film, which was directed and produced by her aunt and starred her mother. The backstory of the film is a rich tale of determination and ingenuity and its rescue from certain obscurity — as the aging celluloid began to break down into yellow dust — is compelling. Because of her limited budget Gittelsohn’s Aunt

Author Mai-Lon Gittelsohn Photo by Lynn Rybarczyk Marion – through The Mandarin Film Company – wrote, directed, starred in and made the costumes and scenery for the first Chinese silent movie produced in the U.S.: “The Curse of Quon Guon: When the Far East Mingles with West” released in 1916. “She cast my mother in the leading role,” said Gittelsohn. The film, a love story, had an all-Chinese cast with Chinese sets and elaborate Chinese costumes. The movie was not picked up by a major distributor resulting in the film company’s bankruptcy, but the reels of film stayed in the Wong family and several were rediscovered after Violet’s death in 1982. “Through the help of the Chinese Historical Society in San Francisco we were put in touch with Arthur Dong, who was on the board of governors for the film academy. He was very excited about the film and sent a car with a refrigerator to pick up the reels,” Gittelsohn recalled. Dong is an awardwinning documentarian and film producer. The film fragments were restored by members of the Academy Film Archive in 2006, placed in the National Film Registry and catalogued at the Library of Congress. It was this surviving footage that captivated the guests at Gittelsohn’s book launch and also served as some of the inspiration for the poems inside the book which she read aloud. Gittelsohn teaches memoir writing to seniors through the San Dieguito Adult School. Many of her students — who take her class repeatedly — were present at the June 11 event. “Mai-Lon’s classes fill up immediately so we know that we have to sign up at midnight when registration opens to get a place,” said Persephone Roland-Holst, a writer from Rancho Santa Fe. “We share our life stories with each other, it’s very personal, it’s very special.” A graduate from the University of California Berkeley, Gittelsohn taught elementary school in the Del Mar Union School District for 23 years. She received her MFA in creative writing from Oregon’s Pacific University in June 2012. Her poetry book is published by Finishing Line Press and came about when she was one of its winners in the “New Women’s Voices Chapbook Competition.” It is Gittelsohn’s first published book but her poems have appeared in various anthologies.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Swirls frozen yogurt continues to please customers this summer with a variety of new flavors BY KAREN BILLING The only time a Swirls customer isn’t happy is when they arrive to find the doors haven’t opened yet or that the store has just closed. For the last five years, Swirls owner Evan Wilensky has been serving up his creamy, quality frozen yogurt and making sure he keeps the community happy. A business owner who places a strong emphasis on community, Wilensky has loved the shops he’s been able to create and support at his three locations in Encinitas, Carmel Valley and Del Mar. Wilensky, a graduate of Torrey Pines High School’s class of 2002, opened his first Swirls shop in Del Mar in 2008. Encinitas Swirls followed in 2009 and a long-awaited Carmel Valley location opened in 2012. Wilensky’s Swirls family has enjoyed sweet success and looks to grow even more. “People come from all over to our locations because of our product, how good it tastes and the atmosphere we create. I really want the community to recognize that this is their community yogurt shop,” Wilensky said. “I want to make people happy.” At Swirls’ three locations the goal is always providing excellent customer service and serving up a premium product in an extremely clean and bright environment. Wilensky said that he loves “providing a healthy treat for the community to enjoy. We will never let a customer leave the yogurt shop unsatisfied. If the customer’s yogurt is not perfect, tell us and we will make it

right!” There are over 52 flavors of yogurt in the mix and 12 on tap on a daily basis — everything from plain tart to the exotic tropical island coconut. All locations always have a non-dairy flavor and a “no sugar added” flavor, and Wilensky said 10 or more new flavors will debut this summer. “You can join Swirls Vip Club by texting the word SWIRLS to 99000 to get the latest flavor alerts and special deals,” Wilensky said. The self-serve concept allows customers to create their own masterpieces — swirling yogurt into their cups and capping it off with a full toppings bar that includes everything from cookie dough hunks and candy bits to fresh fruits chopped multiple times a day. Wilensky notes his shops always use fresh fruit, never frozen. The yogurt itself is a good source of protein, can help lower cholesterol, improves digestion, increases metabolism and stimulates the immune system, Wilensky said. All three shops are consistently busy and Swirls keeps going strong despite many other yogurt stores going out of business. Wilensky said he is surprised by Swirls’ success but he works very hard to achieve that success — often putting in 18-hour days, going non-stop between stores. “I love to interact with customers. I’m not the owner that likes to sit off to the side, I love to take the register and work the store

Owner Evan Wilensky gives customers their frozen yogurt fix at Del Mar Swirls, Encinitas Swirls and Carmel Valley Swirls. Photo by Karen Billing myself, I’m a really hands-on owner,” Wilensky said. “I go back and forth constantly between the stores to make sure everybody’s happy and everything’s running smoothly.” Visit Del Mar Swirls at 2683 Via de la Valle, suite E, Del Mar, 92014; Carmel Valley Swirls in Del Mar Highlands Town Center, 12925 El Camino Real, suite AA1, San Diego, 92130; and Encinitas Swirls at 204 N.

“A Crosby Evening” shines at The RSF Golf Club It was “The Bing Thing” at the RSF Golf Club, Saturday, June 7, as a sold-out crowd gathered to honor the legacy of Bing Crosby’s music, and especially his prominence in the history of The RSF Golf Club. A world-renowned singer and actor, Bing Crosby started the tournament at RSF that is now played at Pebble Beach. To Crosby, it was a party for his Hollywood friends as well as his professional golf friends and was appropriately named “The Clambake.” The tournament was interrupted by WWII after only seven years, but after the war was re-established at Pebble Beach, Crosby’s new home. (Listen to the announcers at next year’s tournament; you might just hear them talking about “the early days” at Rancho Santa Fe!) Several members of the Crosby family gathered to reminisce about Bing. Crosby’s youngest son, Nathaniel, and his daughters Claire and Bridget traveled all the way from Florida. Nathaniel gave a kick-start to the evening, sharing fun memories of golfing with his dad. Bing’s nephew, Chris Crosby, motored down from West Los Angeles and entertained everyone by singing many of his uncle’s favorite tunes. He also put together a video presentation of Bing Crosby that set the mood during the cocktail hour for the evening’s entertainment. Also attending were Malia Crosby, Bing’s niece and her husband, Bill, from Texas. Richard Crosby lives right here in RSF and joined in the fun, costumed as Bing himself. Rhonda Perks, the capable program director, will be remembered better for her beautiful singing, especially the duets with Chris Crosby. RSF’s own Dom Addario as “Satchmo,” joined in the singing and entertainment, everyone accompanied by a talented group of musicians who never missed a beat. The evening ended with — what else, Crosby’s best-known and favorite song, “White Christmas.” It was a totally fun evening “nightclubbing” at the Golf Club. All are looking forward to a repeat — even the Crosbys! But the evening was not really all about Bing Crosby. The Chuck Courtney Honorary Scholarship Fund hosted the evening, the first fundraiser of the year for the Golf Club’s special “Future Legends” scholarship program. Not only was Crosby important in the club’s history, he was a most appropriate focus to kick off the 2014 fundraising program for the Future Legends. Crosby’s caddy was once asked whether he really caddied for him without pay. The caddy’s unhesitating response was that he was being handsomely paid, because Crosby was putting the caddy’s son through college. Several of these Future Legends were present for the evening. The scholarship winners have all come from the ranks of Pro Kids and are continuing to excel scholastically. The next event hosted by the CCHSF will be the Future Legends Party on Wednesday, July 16, a festive affair with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner at The Golf Club. On Monday, Sept. 8, the second annual RSFGC/CCHSF “Future Legends” Golf Tournament is scheduled at the beautiful RSFGC. This is a wonderful opportunity for those not living in the Covenant to enjoy the beautiful course. There will be two flights this year, one flight being for the more experienced golfer who wants to truly enjoy this golfing opportunity.

Annuities: Only Under the Right Circumstances Preparing for retirement is a priority when making decisions about how to invest your money. Annuities are one of the financial products sold with the aim of giving a person a steady cash flow during their retirement years. An annuity is a product sold by

insurance companies designed to grow funds from an individual and then convert that investment into a series of periodic income payments. There are different kinds of annuities with varying kinds of risks, such as fixed, variable and deferred. Although annuities can be the right product under the right circumstances, in general, because of their cost, risk, and complexity, we usually recommend staying away from them. Today, annuities are expensive. Compared to the 50 basis points they cost 10 years ago when the insurance industry was trying to attract annuity investors, today annuities generally cost investors 200 basis points to receive the guaranteed pay out. Also, attractive contractual additions—such as

upfront bonuses and appealing income rider percentages— often come with additional annual fees for the life of the policy. Annuities are also risky. Many insurance companies, for example, only guarantee 87.5 percent of the premiums you pay plus 1 to 3 percent interest, which means if you don’t receive any index-linked interest you will lose money. Even if an agent plugs in some numbers and comes up with an annual projected growth number for the accumulation value, it’s important to realize that this projection is not guaranteed. These numbers are based purely on a theoretical estimation of the stock market’s growth. In fact, even if you have a fixed annuity that promises that you’ll get your money back after

10 years in the stock market, due to inflation, that money will probably be worth less. Because annuities are so complex, consumers buy them without fully understanding them. For example, people are drawn to annuities because they offer certain safeguards for their principle and regular payments, but because they don’t fully understand how they work, people find themselves with their money tied up and are unable to access it without incurring big penalties. Despite their pitfalls, some annuities do have their place in certain retirement portfolios, but this decision should not be made without a full understanding of how annuities work.

The San Diego Jewish Film Festival will host the premiere screening of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Internetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Own Boy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Story of Aaron Swartz,â&#x20AC;? at 7 p.m. Friday, June 25, at the Carlsbad Village Theatre in Carlsbad. The 90-minute documentary is about programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz, a young man who made international news with his groundbreaking work in social justice and political organization in relation to the Internet world. His aggressive approach to information access created a two-year legal nightmare that resulted in a prison sentence and ended in his tragic death at age 26. His story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. After the screening, a Q&A discussion will take place with individuals who were involved with the case and personally knew the story. The Carlsbad Village Theater is at 2822 State St. in Carlsbad.

Out of more than 100,000 nationwide applicants, just 150 high school seniors are selected each year. A member from each of Pacific Ridge’s first four graduating classes has been honored by the Coca-Cola Foundation on a regional or national level.

Besides receiving $20,000 in scholarship money, Miller now has access to the Coca-Cola Foundation’s community of past and present winners. According to the foundation, Coca-Cola Scholar alumni stay in touch through regional councils and special events, and often unite to organize and implement community service projects that enable them to make an even greater impact together. “I didn’t realize the magnitude of this network until my trip to Atlanta,” Miller said. “It is a honor to be selected and really exciting to be a part of such an accomplished group of
