Parents voice concerns over DM school district teachers contract By Karen Billing In a narrow vote last week, Del Mar Union School District teachers voted down an amendment to their 2013-16 contracts that included language about class size increases. The vote was 108 opposed and 105 in favor of the contract, according to district teachers who wished to remain anonymous. Del Mar California Teachers Association (DMCTA) Co-Presidents Gina Vargus and Tiffany Kinney did not respond to requests for comment. Del Mar Union School

District (DMUSD) Superintendent Holly McClurg said that the tentative agreement the teachers were voting on maintains the current class sizes and short-term flexibility. She said the district’s intent is to maintain current class sizes at grades K-3 of 22 and grades 4-6 of 27, with the flexibility to go up to the state’s maximum of 24 in K-3 and 29 in grades 4-6. “Our district is committed to maintaining low class sizes and has no intention of increasing class sizes beyond the current class sizes in the district,”

McClurg said. “As is currently in place, there would be short-term flexibility to meet the needs within a school due to enrollment during the school year. The class structure is in place this school year and would continue in the future.” In April 2013, the teachers reached a oneyear memorandum of understanding, resulting in $1 million in budget solutions that included increasing class sizes from 20:1 to 23:1 in grades kindergarten through third; a corSee TEACHERS, Page AA2

La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation and National Latino Research Center to conduct needs assessment on Solana Beach community By Kristina Houck To improve the quality of life for residents of Solana Beach’s Eden Gardens community, a local foundation and university are teaming up to conduct a needs assessment. In partnership with La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation, researchers at the National Latino Research Center at Cal State San Marcos will interview residents and stakeholders to learn how to improve community resources. The community needs assessment was announced during an informational meeting hosted by the foundation March 19 at North Coast Fellowship in Solana Beach. “We’re happy to have you here because we can’t make change unless we have more people involved,” said Manny Aguilar, president and board

chairman of the foundation. “We have to be the owners of our future and our family’s future.” Aguilar and other concerned citizens founded the organization nearly three years ago to suppress escalating drug and gang violence, as well as encourage local youth to make positive choices and improve resources for residents. In that time, the foundation has held a community forum, created a community garden and launched a youth leadership camp, among other accomplishments. The National Latino Research Center aims to promote scientific and applied research, training and the exchange of information that contribute to the knowledge and understanding of the growing U.S. Latino population. Underwritten by

Santa Fe Christian Schools, the study will identify and prioritize community needs and opportunities in education, civic engagement and social capital. Like his grandparents who emigrated from Mexico in the early 1900s, Aguilar noted the more than 30 people at the meeting were there for one common goal: to have a better life. “That’s what everybody wants in this group for every one of their families — for their kids, for their grandkids,” he said. “That’s why we’re here.” After conducting interviews and hosting focus groups, researchers at National Latino Research Center will analyze the information and write a report. The report will be presented to stakeholders and community members in the summer, AguiSee EDEN, Page AA2

By Kristina Houck A recent court decision clarified the city’s code on the right to continue a structural nonconformity in Del Mar. In a decision published March 14, the Court of Appeal upheld Del Mar’s decision to grant a variance to resident Jon Scurlock, allowing him to build a house that does not comply with the 20-foot front yard setback requirement in the city’s municipal code. Built several decades ago, a two-story house currently sits on the hillside lot on Seaview Avenue. Scurlock plans to build a new house on the footprint of the old house, which is located 9 to 11 feet from the street. “This case is a good outcome for older cities such as Del Mar because it establishes some clarification on the law with respect to existing nonconforming residences and the ability to obtain variances where appropriate with respect to new construction and things of that nature,” said Bill Pate of Stutz, Artiano Shinoff & Holtz, the firm representing the city. Del Mar’s Design Review Board approved Scurlock’s development application in June 2010, concluding that constructing the new house on the existing building pad instead of moving it westward would minimize adverse impacts to steep slopes, minimize land disturbance from grading the site, and minimize the bulk and mass of the retaining walls. The Del Mar Planning Commission conditionally approved the variance in September 2010, which Stephen and Lucy Eskeland, along with residents of three other homes in the neighborhood, appealed to the City Council. The Eskelands brought the matter to court after the council on Oct. 18, 2010 declined to set the appeal for a de novo public hearing. The San Diego Superior Court denied the petition, which the Court of Appeal upheld. “It leaves the discretion where it should — which is with the design reSee CODE, Page AA2

New TPHS football coach tackles ‘dream job’ •Gladnick is attacking new job with a comprehensive plan

New TPHS head football coach Ron Gladnick PHOTO/KAREN BILLING


By Tim Pickwell After what Torrey Pines High School Principal David Jaffe called “an exhaustive, monthslong search process,” the Carmel Valley school has found its new head football coach — only the third at the campus since 1992. Retired CEO and former college All-American defensive end Ron Gladnick was introduced to the campus on Monday, March 17.

The burly coach is expected to bring change to the program — a promised “five new faces” on the coaching staff. But, he also brings a healthy respect for tradition, and has invited Ed Burke, the winningest (182-60-5, four CIF Titles) coach in school history, back to assist. Burke downplayed his future role during an afternoon visit to the campus, but seemed eager to


begin working on footwork drills with the quarterbacks and running backs. “Ed is going to be around to help make our players better,” said Gladnick. For Gladnick, the tradition that Ed Burke represents is all part of a 11-chapter business plan that he pitched to the eight-person hiring committee that ultimately

Deputy Mayor Lesa Heebner was also in attendance. “We’re excited about being a part of this.� Representatives from various community organizations also attended the meeting.

At that time, teachers agreed on solutions such as class size increases over proposed furlough days. But as rumors spread throughout the district about what the teachers were ratifying, concerns and frustrations grew. Some parents even picketed in front of the multiuse rooms at schools while votes were being held because they wanted teachers to know how they felt. While they were assured by McClurg that the intent is not to raise class sizes, some parents focused

“We’re here as a community,� Aguilar said. “We have all these pieces available. Let’s make it work.� The National Latino Research Center will host its first focus group at 6 p.m. April 16 at North Coast Fellowship, 940 Genevieve St., Solana Beach. “If you have problems and complaints, bring them to the table,� Aguilar said. “Let’s find a positive solution. We’re here to find solutions.� For more information about La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation, visit For more information about the National Latino Research Center, visit

on “the state’s maximum� in the contract language and contend that it does, in fact, spell out class size increases. They said the state’s maximum refers to the new funding formula that calls for an average class size maximum in K-3 of 25. Because the funding formula states an average, a third grade class with 28 students would be fine as long as other classes had low numbers to bring down the average. Many parents did not want to go on record but stated how much they value their low class sizes and that they were upset they didn’t have the opportunity to weigh in on the agreement before the vote. Sycamore Ridge parent Josh Clorfeine heard about the vote, as many parents did, by accident. One parent reported finding a notice about the upcoming vote left in the copy room

while she was volunteering. “It’s unfortunate the way we found out,� Clorfeine said. “It was frustrating that there wasn’t any attempt to communicate about it from the district and that they didn’t solicit input as they prepared to make a proposal to increase class size caps.� As it is now, his fourth grader is already in a class that is two students over the cap. He said he did appreciate the efforts school staff made to avoid having a combination class by bumping a class above the cap in this case, but he said he is just disappointed with the lack of transparency in the process. “It just seems that a lot of this could’ve been avoided by having an open discussion,� Clorfeine said. According to McClurg, the process for ratifying any changes to the agree-

ment between the DMCTA and the DMUSD follows a timeline. After the vote, the tentative agreement is publicized and brought before the board of trustees at a public meeting — which will be held at 5:45 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26, at Del Mar Hills Academy. The meeting occurs after presstime for this newspaper, so check for a full report online (www. or in next week’s newspaper (April 3 issue). Despite the rumors, McClurg said that the best interests of the children are the top priority of the district. “Low class sizes are highly valued by our district and are something we plan to maintain,� McClurg said.

The plaintiffs, however, argue that the ruling could make it easier for developers to not just continue, but expand nonconforming structures in Del Mar. “It establishes — for essentially all of California — that a variance can overcome a prohibition on expanding nonconformities,� said Todd Cardiff, who represented the Eskelands. “You can always seek

a variance to get over that hurdle. That’s something that’s new for Del Mar.� In a written statement, Stephen Eskeland said the decision sets “horrible precedent� for the city and the state. “It blows a hole in our community plan,� he said. “What this means is that through the variance process, redevelopment will be able to routinely increase the degree of nonconfor-

mity. This will result in structural overcrowding, possible loss of significant public views and private views, and invasion of privacy, which is what happened to us.� The Eskelands are currently reviewing the decision and considering their options, Cardiff said. They have 40 days from the publication of the decision to seek Supreme Court review.

selected him. “It’s very important that the players understand the tradition,� he said. “It’s important that they understand when they put on the uniform that they represent every Torrey Pines player who went before them, and every Torrey Pines player who will come after them.� Gladnick experienced the Falcon football tradition first-hand as an assistant coach from 2009-2011. “I fell in love with the campus when I first walked onto it,� he said. But, to become a head coach, he first had to leave, going to Clairemont High School for the 2012-2013 seasons, where he led the Chieftains to their first playoff win in nearly a decade. When Torrey Pines Head Coach Scott Ashby announced his retirement in January, Gladnick applied. “I was up-front with Clairemont. I told them that Torrey Pines was my dream job, and if that position ever opened-up, I was applying.� Born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island, Gladnick played defensive end and tight end for Smithtown High School East. His senior year, the 6’ 3�, 245-lb. star believes he was “the biggest tailback in America.� Gladnick then headed west to Hillsdale College in Michigan, where he became a consensus First Team All-American, a Kodak All-American, Team Captain, Team MVP, and All-League Defensive MVP. Gladnick then went into sales and marketing for Proctor & Gamble (“I was a ‘Tide Guy’�), but found time to coach at Brecksville High School, in Brecksville, Ohio, where the team won a state championship. A 1990 convention brought him to sunny San Diego for four days during a dark Ohio winter. He promptly quit P &G and moved to San Diego without a job or prospects. With three other people, he ended up starting an aviation parts company that grew to more than 500 employees in seven facilities. He sold

the company in stages from 2008-2011. The proceeds of the sale have allowed him “to do what I do now� — which is to devote fulltime attention to football. He is attacking his new job with a comprehensive business plan. “I’m meeting with the coaches of other sports on campus,� he says. “We need to recruit on our own campus first. There are five-seven boys in each grade who should be out here playing, but are not. We need to create a positive environment that makes lacrosse players want to play football as well.� He is also meeting oneon-one with each athlete on the football roster, and setting out some goals and expectations. He is doing all this while assembling his staff. “We have several coaches already on campus that will be returning,� he said, “and there will be five new faces on the staff.� “We have a very demanding schedule next year,� he notes. The school will play in Division I, but has three Open Division opponents on the horizon, along with a highly ranked team from Utah. “For us to win, we have to win every intangible in the game. We have to handle every blocking assignment, we have to work harder, we have to be in better condition. We are going to work on a lot of things above the shoulders. We are going to give the players a smaller universe of tasks to master, but we will expect them to do them to perfection. We have to be smarter and more disciplined than the other teams. Fortunately, with Torrey Pines athletes, we have a shot at being both.� Gladnick is also passionate about his community outreach program. “I will speak to any group, anytime, anywhere — consistent with the CIF rules.� Gladnick said believes that the football program needs to do a better job promoting and working with Pop Warner. “We need to do everything we can to support the program that provides our pipeline of players.�

all about,” Fowler said, noting the organization’s commitment to philanthropy. “If we don’t engage the community, I don’t think we have the ability to accomplish all we want to accomplish,” Dee was with the Padres from 1995 to 2002, assisting in the financial planning and construction of Petco Park alongside Larry Lucchino. Both Lucchino and Dee left for the Boston Red Sox in 2002, where Dee was CEO. In 2009, he became CEO of the Miami Dolphins until 2013 before being wooed back to San Diego. Fowler said part of the reason they brought Dee back to San Diego was because of how he embraces all the elements of community which is good for business, not to mention his contagious energy. Dee said since he’s been gone, downtown San Diego has evolved into everything they dreamt up when Petco Park was first envisioned. “It’s an exciting city,” Dee said. Dee said there’s still a lot of potential both within the walls of Petco and with ownership and management to come together and build a team that will bring the community together as in 1998, the year of the team’s World Series run. Dee said he doesn’t view the Padres as a small-market team but believes they can compete as a mid-market team. “We’ve got to go out and take care of business,” Dee said. The Padres will get some national attention right off the bat as the Padres’ March 30 home opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers will be the Padres’ first nationally televised Sunday Night Baseball Game on ESPN that they’ve hosted since 2008. It will be a chance to showcase Petco, which Dee said has become nationally renowned since its opening in 2004. Even though Petco is only celebrating its 10-year anniversary, Dee said a four-to-five-year process to modernize the stadium has already been set into motion. They will start with a new sound system, new video board and a lot of technology that can be personally incorporated through fans’ handheld devices unlike any sports venue anywhere.

Del Mar residents petition against development of Hidden Pines Road property By Kristina Houck In an effort to preserve the property as open space, a Del Mar resident is circulating a petition to prevent a small cityowned parcel from being sold for development. Located on Hidden Pines Road, the vacant parcel was formerly used as a water pump site. The Del Mar City Council on March 18, 2013 adopted a resolution with the intent to sell the land, and the Planning Commission on Jan. 14 declared the parcel in conformance with the city’s general plan. But some residents argue the 25-foot-wide, 127-footlong space is too small for development. “The city has been describing this as just another nonconforming lot, whereas it’s really the most nonconforming lot ever,” said Clive Freeman,

who owns a home that borders the western side of the parcel. Since launching the petition in January, he has collected more than 80 signatures, he said. The property was mapped in 1947, but the city’s zoning code was established in the 1976 Del Mar Community Plan. Therefore, the 3,170-square-foot plot is located in a zone for single-family residential development where lots must be a minimum of 10,000 square feet. “The parcel is a legal parcel with development rights and the purchaser of the property could choose to build on the property, or keep it as open space,” said Assistant City Manager Mark Delin. In an interview, Delin noted about 30 percent of parcels in the R1-10 zone are not in conformance See PROPERTY, page A23

By Karen Billing In anticipation of the start of the new Major League Baseball season, The Bridges of Rancho Santa Fe held a special event March 18 on “The Business of Baseball.” Guests noshed on bacon cracker jacks, warm hot pretzels and mini hot dogs as they heard from baseball voices such as Mike Dee, CEO and president of the San Diego Padres, and Ron Fowler, the Padres’ executive chairman in an interactive forum. Former Padres player Mark Loretta was also in attendance. Fowler is the executive chairman of the San Diego Padres’ ownership group composed of the O’Malley and Seidler families that completed a $800 million purchase of the franchise in 2012. Fowler has always had a love for baseball and set his sights on playing professionally. His plans to play in college for the University of Minnesota were dashed when he tore his ACL. “For me to be engaged in baseball over 50 years later is really special,” said Fowler. He had always enjoyed the business of sports and thought it would be fun to be a part of a group like the O’Malley and Seidler families represent. “You need to become a part of the community and work with the community and listen to the community. I think that’s what we’re



Torrey Hills planning board may stop enhancement project, says cost too high By Karen Billing The Torrey Hills Community Planning Board continues to resist the idea of having the city spend hundreds of thousands of community money on a simple enhancement project. “It started out as a wonderful idea to make an area that was a little bit of a blight look nice,” said board chair Kathryn Burton. “But the costs are just out of line…Any homeowner in Torrey Hills would be appalled at spending this kind of money for what’s essentially a boulder, gravel and a bench.” Due to the costs of the proposed enhancement of 1.5 acres under the power lines on East Ocean Air Drive, the board may consider just stopping the project altogether. City staff and consultants presented plans for the enhancement in January and reported that they could start construction in March 2015. The estimated construction cost would be $231,000, plus soft costs for the environmental process and a site development permit which can be as much as $100,000. Potentially, the enhancement could end up costing the entire amount in the Torrey Hills maintenance assessment district (MAD) budget: $441,000. At its Feb. 18 board meeting, the board voted to send a letter to the city to request a stop in spending on the project, as already $75,000 has already been spent, including $20,000 for Estrada Land Planning for what the board said was just “two

pages” of planning and design work. Burton said the city projects another $75,000 for future consultant work. The board asked Ali Darvishi, the supervising project manager and deputy city engineer, to provide a list of costs on the project as well as potential cost savings. They asked whether the site would really require temporary irrigation and if their MAD (Maintenance Assessment District) would be allowed to maintain the site in lieu of the proposed 25-month maintenance and monitoring program. In a letter to the board, Darvishi said it is possible that hand-watering could replace the irrigation system but the method has not been effective in the past with the kind of hydroseed mix planned for the site. He said they could save $76,500 by eliminating the temporary irrigation system and the base under the decomposed granite trail, bringing the new construction cost to $153,000, with total project costs of $332,000. Darvishi’s letter said that $53,000 of additional savings could be realized with the elimination of DG paving, boulders, bench, shade structure, dry creek and the five-gallon trees. The new construction total would be reduced to $100,000, with total project costs of $279,000. Last year the board approved spending $290,000 on a project that included things such as the paving, boulders and benches. Without even those, not much is left of the original intent of the project, Burton said.

Planning board continues to voice concern over placing a proposed new DMUSD childcare development center at Torrey Hills School By Karen Billing The Torrey Hills Community Planning Board reiterated its opposition to a proposed new childcare development center at Torrey Hills School at its March 11 meeting. Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD) Superintendent Holly McClurg and other district staff members — as well as DMUSD President Doug Rafner — attended the meeting to hear the board’s concerns, the major one being the potential traffic impact on the surrounding neighborhood. As part of the school district’s facili-

ties master plan process, a proposal is being discussed to find a permanent home for its childcare development center (CDC), which is currently housed at Sycamore Ridge School. As Sycamore Ridge is facing an overcrowded campus, a new 13,000-square-foot CDC at Torrey Hills is one of the options. According to McClurg, various funding sources for such a facility are being explored and the board will make a decision on the CDC in six months. “The issue of course is the siting, it has nothing to do with the value of the proSee CENTER, page A26

Water agencies protest proposed Metropolitan rate hikes By Joe Tash The Santa Fe Irrigation District, which supplies water to Solana Beach, has joined forces with other water agencies and civic groups in San Diego County to protest proposed rate increases by the Metropolitan Water District, Southern California’s water wholesaler. The local groups have sent letters to Metropolitan, and a delegation also spoke against the proposed rate increases of 1.5 percent over each of the next two years, at a public hearing in Los Angeles on March 11. The Metropolitan board is expected to consider the rate increases — as well as a decision to maintain its current property tax levy on Southern California residents — at its next meeting on April 8. For the entire story, visit (news category).

By Joe Tash Daniel James Brown’s book about nine working-class boys from the Pacific Northwest who rowed their way into history by winning a gold medal in the 1936 Olympics in front of Adolf Hitler began with a brief conversation in Brown’s own living room. Brown, a Seattle resident, had already written two successful non-fiction books and was looking for a new topic. He had hosted a community meeting in his home, and afterward he was approached by a neighbor who asked if he would come by to meet her elderly father. “This story literally walked into my living room one day after a homeowners association meeting,” said Brown, the featured speaker at the March meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society. The meeting was held at The Grand Del Mar Shortly after that initial conversation, Brown sat down with Joe Rantz, who had a compelling story to tell about perseverance, deprivation, love and trust, all against the backdrop of the Great Depression and the buildup to World War II. Rantz, who was in his 90s at the time, was dying of congenital heart failure and would be gone just a few months later. “By the end of that first conversation, I was completely mesmerized and ready to go,” said Brown in an interview before his talk. “The story got richer and richer the more I dug into it.” The end result of Brown’s digging and writing was “The Boys in the Boat,” which was published by Viking in June 2013. The paperback edition comes out this summer, and movie rights to the book were recently purchased by producer Harvey Weinstein. At one level, the book tells the tale of the varsity

But it’s also a story about the struggles of Rantz and his teammates to survive during brutal economic times, and of western democracy vs. facism. “This book comes down to a race between a bunch of American boys against German boys and Italian boys,” said Brown. “I wanted the reader to be aware of what was at stake symbolically in that race. It was a clash not just of boys in boats, but very different views of the world.”

Brown spent four years researching and writing the book, which reads like a novel as it chronicles the early adulthood of Rantz and his crew, but also cuts to dark scenes of Germany during the early 1930s, soon after Hitler’s rise to power. Along with countless interviews of family members of the rowing team,

Brown went on the water himself to get the feel of being an oarsman, learned to cut cedar shingles as Rantz did, and traveled to the lake near Berlin where the fateful 2,000-meter race took place nearly 80 years ago. He also pored through boxes of letters, diaries and other documents provided by the families, as well as reading newspaper articles from the ‘30s. One challenge in writing the book, said Brown, was that the events portrayed in the story had occurred more than seven decades earlier. In Seattle, particularly, people knew that the University of Washington crew had won gold at Berlin, and the boat they used, called a rowing shell, is still on display at the school. He counted on the peaks and valleys of the story to carry the reader’s interest. See OLYMPICS, page A23

District Attorney faces first challenge for office in 11 years By Pat Sherman Three-term San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, who was uncontested in her first two bids for re-election as the county’s top prosecutor, has competition this time as she seeks a fourth term in the June 3 primary election — among them, attorney Robert Brewer. The newspaper group met with both candidates this month to talk about their plans to protect the region if victorious. A third candidate, Terri Wyatt, a former prosecutor in the DA’s office, did not respond to an interview request by press time. Her interview will run in next week’s edition. A former prosecutor, Brewer has surpassed Dumanis in fundraising with $482,000 to her $341,000 as of last month’s campaign disclosure reports (Wyatt has about $20,000). Dumanis holds the power of power of incumbency, and the backing of Mayor Kevin Faulconer, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore and all five county supervisors. Though voters historically turn out in smaller numbers for countywide races, Brewer said they should not take the district attorney’s race lightly. “No felony case is filed in San Diego County without the approval and review of a deputy district attorney — and there were 17,000 felonies filed last year in San Diego County,” Brewer said. “The district attorney also files 80 percent of the misdemeanors in the county. … The district attorney has the power to take people’s freedom away, and has the power to put people on death row. There’s no more impactful person in the county.” Dumanis said she’s used that power to unite a divided office after narrowly defeating former DA Paul Pfingst

in 2002, going on to cut the office’s budget by $14 million and increase diversity. “When I was a deputy DA in the office there were only six women out of more than 60 deputy DAs,” she said. “Now , a little over half are women.” Dumanis highlighted her office’s role in the prosecution of sexually violent predators, working to craft and assure passage of Jessica’s Law (designed to reduce sexual offenders’ ability to re-offend), as well as her office’s role in prosecuting the killer of teenagers Amber Dubois and Chelsea King. Dumanis also touted “gutsy moves,” such as going after unlicensed contractors who prey on wildfire victims, and an ongoing suit against former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for violating victim’s rights by reducing the

prison sentence of a political ally’s son by more than half (without giving the family a chance to argue against the commutation). Both Dumanis and Brewer say that, if elected, they plan to crack down on elder abuse, identify theft and human trafficking, all of which are on the rise. Dumanis met this month at the U.S.-Mexico border with Attorney General Kamala Harris (who has also endorsed her) to discuss her initiative to combat sexual exploitation and the trafficking of human labor. “We’ve just begun to see the enormity of it,” Dumanis said. Dumanis, whose office boasts a 94 percent conviction rate, said San Diego County has the lowest crime rate in 30 years. “We’re one of the safest urban counties, public safetywise,” she said. “I think people know me. I’m tested and trusted. As I go into the community, they like what we’re doing in the DA’s office.” Brewer, who underscored his leadership serving in combat during the Vietnam War, and role in successfully prosecuting a deeply embedded KGB spy during the Cold War, said his primary goal will be to “regain the confidence of law enforcement,” which he says Dumanis has lost. Dumanis attributed the loss of support to “holding people accountable.” “That includes police officers,” she said. “We prosecute where necessary and sometimes they don’t agree with those decisions.” Dumanis said her office meets monthly with police chiefs and assistant chiefs from cities around the county, See ATTORNEY, page A20

Canyon Crest Academy’s robotics team 4278 – de.evolution – is headed to the world championship robotics tournament in St. Louis next month, after competing at the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Super-Regional competition held in Sacramento March 20 to 22. De.evolution earned a spot at the world competition after winning the coveted Connect Award, which, according to organizers, “is given to the team that most connected with their local community and the engineering community.” The Super-Regional tournament brought together 72 teams from 13 western states. California sent 21 teams, seven from the San Diego area. The FIRST organization places as priorities other achievements besides winning the game on the field, by presenting six different awards: Inspire, Think, Connect, Innovate, Design and Motivate. The teams judges select for these awards are honored and qualify to advance to the next round. The world competition in St. Louis is the fourth level of advancement and the culmination of a season that began last fall. FIRST defines the winner of the Connect Award as “more than a sum of its parts and [one that] recognizes that its schools and communities play an essential part to their success. “The recipient of this award is recognized for helping the community understand FIRST, the FTC, and the team itself. The team that wins this award is aggressively seeking engineers and exploring the opportunities available in the world of engineering, science and technology. In addition, this team has a clear Business or Strategic Plan and has identified steps to achieve their goals.” Judges in Sacramento cited de.evolution’s outreach to the community, the positive influence the team has had on its own school and other local schools, its comprehensive strategy to expand understanding of FIRST, and the team’s efforts to highlight the benefits of robotics for students interested in science and technology. According to FIRST, the FTC games, different each year, use “a combination of motors, controllers, wireless communications, metal gears, and sensors, including infrared tracking (IR) and magnet seeking.” Students “program their robots to operate in both autonomous and driver-controlled modes on a specially designed field.” De-Evolution is a FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) team, with eight members this year, and is CCA’s after-school FTC robotics team. FTC teams are limited to 10 students in grades 7-12. Based in Manchester, New Hampshire, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an international robotics competition founded by inventor Dean Kamen in 1989. A non-profit organization, FIRST [] was created to inspire and motivate students to excel and pursue careers in engineering, science and technology.

Psychologist offers insights on the joy of living at Stein Institute lecture By Linda Hutchison Is it possible for us to become happier people – that is, to experience happiness more often and throughout our lives? Yes, it is, says Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ph.D., who recently spoke on “The Science and Practice of Happiness Across the Lifespan” at UC San Diego’s Stein Institute for Research on Aging. A professor of psychology at UC Riverside, Lyubomirsky has spent more than 20 years developing a science of happiness, investigating how and why people are happy, and how they can become even happier. Her research has been awarded several prizes and grants and has been featured in hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles and television shows around the world. In addition to her research, teaching and lecturing, Lyubomirsky is the author of two bestselling books on the subject: “The

Psychologist, researcher and author Sonja Lyubomirsky, Ph.D., (second from left), spoke recently on the “Science and Practice of Happiness Across the Lifespan” at the UCSD Stein Institute for Research on Aging. With her are Dr. Dilip Jeste, director of the Institute, Suzanne Angelucci, whose endowment sponsored the lecture series, and her daughter Barbara Giammona. Photo/Linda Hutchison How of Happiness” and “The Myths of Happiness.” How does she define happiness? “It has two components,” she said. “The emotional component means we experience more positive emotions, such as joy, curiosity, appreciation and we want to increase the frequency. The cognitive component means we are aware that life is good, we are satisfied with our progress toward goals, for example, and in other ways.” The two components are intertwined. Americans are happiness oriented, she points out. After all, “the pursuit of Happiness” is included as an un-

alienable right in our Declaration of Independence, right up there with Life and Liberty. Lyubomirsky readily admits that no one can be happy all the time and that there is no magic formula. We have to work at it and realize that what we think will make us happy doesn’t always — or not for long. Mind the Matter One of her central themes is the importance of having a prepared mind — a mind prepared to make reason-based, healthier decisions, to think instead of acting on gut-based reactions. She admits that these initial reactions are often more compelling, such as “Take this job and shove it!” but rational second and third thoughts are more productive. When we think something through more carefully, we leave ourselves open to more ideas and opportunities. Another finding of her research is that while

certain events can make us very happy – a new marriage, job, home ,promotion, for example — our happiness doesn’t usually last. That’s because as humans, we quickly adapt to circumstances. Lyubomirsky refers to this as hedonic adaption, and also as creeping normalcy, insidious habituation, taking things for granted and boredom. When this sets in, we feel something must be wrong with us and that we are not happy. But there are tools we can use to head off or minimize this feeling, such as enjoying nature, introducing variety and surprises into our lives, meditating, exercising, eating well, writing and reflecting (without falling into ruminating), practicing gratitude and kindness and pursuing meaningful relationships and goals. Lyubomirsky refrains from suggesting any one-sizefits-all formula for increasing happiness, but says that we can use our prepared minds and tools throughout our lives and view crisis or turning points as opportunities for growth. According to her research, approximately 40 percent of how we feel is within our control, with approximately 50 percent genetically determined and 10 percent influenced by circumstances. Mature Happiness Although older people may face some different challenges (health problems, loss of friends and family, feelings of lost opportunities), they also have many advantages, according to Lyubomirsky. “Older people have more perspective, are emotionally wiser, know what makes them happy and avoid situations and people that don’t,” she said. “They know they have less time, so they use it more wisely and effectively, are less likely to ruminate. They know they will get through the day.” If older people can learn anything from younger ones, it would be to take more risks, she added. Instead of sticking with the comfortable, have lunch with someone new or try a new activity. “Younger people are risk takers, they want new experiences and opportunities. Neither approach is right or wrong, both have advantages.” Lyubomirsky even thinks those who have been chronically unhappy can learn to start an upward spiral with such simple steps as helping others. “Acts of kindness can help people feel really good, can snowball, attract new friends,” she said. Lyubomirsky says her own greatest sources of happiness are her family (she is married with four children, ages 10 months to 14 years) and her work. She first noticed a difference in happiness levels at the age of 9. Newly arrived in Boston from Russia, Lyubomirsky was struck by how much happier Americans appeared strolling down the street, smiling and saying hello, than Russians. (Today, she adds, younger Russians are happier.) Her interest in studying happiness sparked on her first day of graduate school. While walking around the Stanford campus with her new bachelor’s degree from Harvard and her graduate advisor, they began discussing what makes people happy, even though his area of expertise was conflict and negotiation. This conversation led to their first research studies. In the future, she would like to conduct more long-term studies that follow people for many years as well as analyze how positive actions work, how to alleviate depression, the role of genetic make-up and how to measure behavior more objectively beyond self-reporting. As part of the UCSD School of Medicine, the Organized Research Unit was founded in 1983 and renamed the Sam and Rose Stein Institute for Research on Aging in 1992 to promote education and research in geriatrics and gerontology. The Institute presents free public lectures promoting physical and mental wellbeing. La Jolla philanthropist Suzanne Angelucci as a memorial to her father, Frank Benedikt Roehr, endowed the current series. Want to know more?

Del Mar Hills students give Principal Lerner a ‘SurfRider Tidal Wave’ The students at Del Mar Hills Academy ran their annual Jog-a-Thon on March 5, with all proceeds benefitting the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF). Afterward, the school wanted to honor both the students who ran the most laps that day (two per grade), as well as those who raised the most money for the DMSEF (one per grade). Those high achievers were invited to the school field

on Friday, March 21, to participate in the SurfRider Tidalwave, where they got to douse Principal Julie Lerner with buckets of water. Lerner was armed with both goggles and a good sense of humor.

Parents and grandparents are invited to attend to learn more about the events and activities offered to Del Mar families through the Del Mar Foundation, as well as meet with neighbors and friends in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. “Over the past year, we heard from many parents saying how much they love the events we put on for their children and could we offer something just for them as well?� explained Kelley Huggett, chair of Young Del Mar. “This made us realize that we needed to expand our service to specifically address the needs of parents. We are also planning fun activities for our teens/pre-teens.� Young Del Mar will continue providing exceptional children’s events and activities, such as the Fancy Nancy Parade, 4th of July Parade, Toddler’s playgroups, Annual Easter Egg Hunt, and Spooktacular Beach Bonfire, while adding activities geared towards parents. These may include gatherings at local restaurants to “get out of the house� for a relaxed evening, presentations on current topics of interest to families, and fundraising events to support Young Del Mar programs. The Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages nearly $2 million in endowment funds to benefit the community and the San Dieguito Lagoon. The Foundation’s community endowment provides long-term funding stability for community needs. For more information about the Del Mar Foundation please visit our website at or call 858-635-1363.

Two Del Mar residents — Lin Chao and Susan Taylor — were recognized as stellar faculty members by UC San Diego as part of the 40th Annual Chancellor’s Associates Faculty Excellence Awards, held March 20 at the J.R. Beyster Auditorium at the Rady School of Management. Six outstanding faculty members were honored for excellence in teaching, research, community service and the performing and visual arts. The recipients of the 2014 Chancellor’s Associates Faculty Excellence Awards include: Lin Chao, professor of biological sciences, for excellence in undergraduate teaching; Leslie J. Carver, associate professor of psychology, for excellence in graduate teaching; Stephan M. Haggard, professor of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS), for excellence in research in humanities and social sciences; Susan S. Taylor, professor of pharmacology and professor of chemistry and biochemistry, for excellence in research in science and engineering; Ramamohan Paturi, professor of computer science and engineering, for excellence in community service; and Susan Narucki, professor of music, for excellence in performing and visual arts. Award candidates are nominated by their academic peers, with final selection by a committee comprising Chancellor’s Associates donors. Criteria for selection are based on faculty member achievements, reputation and impact on students and the academic community. About the Del Mar honorees: Lin Chao: Chao’s commitment to student learning is reflected in the comments made by his undergraduates, who give his approach an outstanding 98 percent approval rating, including many kudos for using a chalkboard instead of PowerPoint. Chao has a reputation for clear, interesting lectures that enable students to absorb tremendous amounts of material, informed by his long research career in experimental evolution. The trajectory of former students, many of whom go on to prestigious research and faculty positions, speaks to his influence as teacher and role model. “Lin Chao is an outstanding researcher and educator with the rare ability to convey even the most difficult of ideas in a clear, understandable and inspirational manner,” said Joshua Kohn, professor and chair of the section of ecology, behavior and evolution in the Division of Biological Sciences. “He provides the students with the concepts that lead them to be able to reach the proper conclusions by their own reasoning. This is a deep goal of instruction, one that is not easily reached.” Susan Taylor: Considered one of the world’s preeminent scientists, Taylor has made major contributions to modern biology and chemistry. Her seminal work on protein kinase A has defined the structure, function, dynamics and evolution of the protein kinase super-family—crucial for cellular processes such as growth and metabolism. Taylor is considered the antithesis of an ivory-tower scholar and recognized as a collaborative force

Saratoga WarHorse Foundation’s Marilyn Lane honored for work supporting veterans’ rehabilitation By Julie Sarno Marilyn Lane of the Saratoga WarHorse Foundation was recently honored by the Women’s International Center (WIC) with a Living Legacy Award. Living Legacy Awards celebrate women and each year honors groundbreaking individuals from around the world who are making a difference. WIC is based in Rancho Santa Fe. “The mission of the Women’s International Center is to acknowledge, honor, encourage, and educate women all around the world,� said local resident Bridget McDonald, Ph.D., president and executive director for the Center. “That is what we have been doing for 30 years.� Lane was honored for her work as a horsewoman supporting veterans’ rehabilitation at Saratoga WarHorse. Lane serves as director of Thoroughbred Industry Relations and Development for Saratoga WarHorse near Saratoga Springs, New York. The WarHorse Project provides a three-day program for returning veterans who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Lane has been part of Saratoga WarHorse since its inception in 2011. Her father and four older brothers served in the military. Lane was interviewed during her time in San Diego for the award ceremony. “With PTSD, the problems get worse for 10 or 12 years after the veterans return,� said Lane. “Time Magazine reported in July of 2012, that there is one suicide every day. In World War I, it was called Shell Shock. World War II called it Battle Fatigue. Now it’s PTSD.� “Horses bring people back to a calm place,� continued Lane. “There is a strong link between horses and the military.� Lane told the story of the Saratoga WarHorse Project. It was founded by Bob Nevins, a retired pilot. Nevins served in the army in the 101st Airborne. During Vietnam, he flew a Medevac helicopter and was wounded in 1971. He also served in the New York National Guard. His love of horses, his military service and his desire to help the many veterans returning with PTSD gave him the idea for the project in 2008. When he retired after 24 years as a commercial pilot for American Eagle in 2011, he devoted his efforts to bringing veterans together with former racehorses. The project received national publicity when a documentary film made by HRTV (Horse Racing Television) won an Eclipse Award — Thoroughbred racing’s equivalent of an Academy Award — in January. The award-winning video and more information is on the organization’s website, “It was heart-warming to watch the video and see the reaction of the veterans,� said Del Mar resident Joe Harper, president and chief executive officer of Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. “It’s an experience that is so positive. It’s pretty emotional for them. I’m very impressed with Saratoga WarHorse, and not just the results. They’ve done so much work to get the program organized.�

Marilyn Lane in Saratoga Springs with a retired Thoroughbred from the Saratoga WarHorse Project. Lane described the three-day program. Participating veterans fly in on a Sunday evening. They meet with a nurse practitioner. After breakfast on Monday, they go to the farm. They spend the morning in a classroom with instructor Melody Squier, who will work with them throughout the three days. According to Lane, Squier is a lifelong horsewoman. According to the WarHorse website, she “developed ‘Equipoise’ natural horsemanship techniques and communication skills to create respect and understanding.� Initially, Squier uses a Powerpoint presentation and talks about herd behavior, longlines and the visual field of a horse. One powerful classroom exercise has participants describe themselves without using language: “How am I perceived if I can’t talk?� Veterans work together in pairs, with one being the horse and the other having a longline. Then they all set up a round pen, as a team-building exercise. The veterans are paired with horses by temperament. A veteran enters the round pen and stands in the center. The horse he has been paired with enters the round pen. “There is a mystique to being in a round pen with a galloping horse,� said Lane. “There is no escape. ‘Is he a trustworthy leader?’ is what the horse is trying to discover.� Once the horse recognizes that the veteran displays body language showing that he is a trustworthy leader — not a predator waiting to eat him for dinner — the horse approaches the veteran in the center of the round pen. The horse demonstrates his trust in the human. After viewing the documentary and other videos on the website, Del Mar Director of Media Mac McBride, a former Marine and Vietnam veteran, said, “It’s remarkable to see the way those young vets just melt in the horses’ final presence — it’s like a great weight has been lifted

The latter was the first female pilot ever licensed in the West Point Flying Club at the United States Military Academy. Photo/Edith Jones, from them. I believe that Bob Nevins sets the stage perfectly through his understanding of both sides of that equation.� “The amount of trauma someone carries makes for a stronger connection,� said Lane. “The veterans respect the retired racehorses. The horses have clamored out of the starting gate and done battle. They’ve made the transition from being a racehorse to ‘civilian’ life.� Lane said the first goal is to fully develop Saratoga WarHorse in Saratoga, beginning with training other instructors. There are plans for a satellite operation in Aiken, South Carolina, spurred by the efforts of prominent Thoroughbred owner and board member Anne Campbell. Lane said donations have increased since the organization was granted not-for-profit or 501(c)(3) status. Lane met with Harper during her time in San Diego. Following the meeting, Harper said, “It makes a lot of sense to have a program like this here, because of the number of military in the area. We’ve also got a whole lot of horses. The WarHorse Project has done so much groundwork. Use the experience they have and take the next step.� Rancho Santa Fe resident Joseph Boscacci also met with Lane during her visit. Boscacci was in the U.S. Army for 32 years, retiring as a Colonel. He spends his time volunteering with Heroes to Hire, part of the Yellow Ribbon Program. A Vietnam and Gulf War veteran, Boscacci said, “I find animals have a calming effect. They help when you flashback. The use of horses is a wonderful thing. It helps people to get through the memory of what went on.� “The Saratoga Warhorse program does not change yesterday,� said Lane. “It simply makes it so the veterans can jump that track and take on tomorrow.�

International designer Zandra Rhodes to speak at Canyon Crest Academy March 31 The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation recently announced an evening with Zandra Rhodes on March 31 at 6 p.m. in the school’s Proscenium Theater. Rhodes is an internationally-acclaimed artist, textile and fashion designer and set/costume designer. As the kick-off of the “Across the Universe: A Tribute to the Beatles,” Rhodes will speak to students and the community about her experiences as an artist. “It is the mission of the CCA Foundation to enrich the experience of every student, every day,” said CCAF Executive Director Joanne Couvrette, “and with that in mind we have designed ‘Across the Universe’ with our students central to the planning, and have sought to include expert guests into the process. Zandra Rhodes is not only an accomplished artist and designer, she brings an expertise and experience in both set and costume design.” Rhodes has designed for an eclectic mix of wellknown individuals ranging from Princess Diana to Freddy Mercury (of Queen) to Jackie Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor. She has been nominated for an Emmy award for set design. Locally, she has designed sets for the San Diego Opera’s production of Aida. Her biography notes, “Zandra’s own lifestyle is as dramatic, glamorous and extrovert as her designs. With her bright pink hair, theatrical make-up and art jewelry, she has stamped her identity on the international world of fashion. She was one of the new wave of British designers who put London at the forefront of the international fashion scene in the 1970s. Her unique use of bold prints, fiercely feminine patterns and theatrical use of color has given her garments a timeless quality that makes them unmistakably a Rhodes creation. In 1977 she pioneered the pink and black jersey collection with holes and beaded safety pins that earned her the name of “Princess of Punk.” Her posters from this period have been a continuous inspiration for make-up artists and are collectors’ items. She continues to clothe and design for the rich and famous around the world, from royalty to rock stars including: HRH Princess Michael of Kent, Debbie Harry, Bianca Jagger, Kylie Minogue, Anastasia, Paris Hilton, Joan Rivers and the late Isabella Blow.” “Although we planned the event as an education opportunity for students, we soon discovered a huge interest among parents and the community,” says Couvrette. “We decided to open the event to the public, as a kick-off to ‘Across the Universe’ and are asking our adult guests to bring a set of Beatles Drinking Glasses as their ticket. We plan to use the glasses at the May 16 gala.

Zandra Rhodes The glasses are unexpectedly proving more difficult to find in the last month, however. We found them at several local stores last month, but now I can only find them online, and hope we will collect the number we need!” For more information on this event and to find out where to get your Beatles glasses, visit to the CCA Foundation Facebook Page. Information about “Across the Universe” and Zandra Rhodes is updated frequently. The Canyon Crest Academy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization providing fantastic opportunities across academics, athletics, and the arts, and creating an environment where students can thrive. Your tax-deductible donation to the CCA Foundation is vitally needed to continue our support of these programs. You can donate online at

By Kristina Houck Although new to the Solana Beach Soccer Club, Antonio “Tony” Cruz has already made a lasting impression on his team. The Torrey Pines High School freshman was recently named “Athlete of the Year” by the youth recreational program. “He seems genuinely happy to be a part of the team and all those around him,” said Coach Michelle Moraga, who nominated Antonio for the award. “It’s been an absolute pleasure to have Antonio this past season. I feel he is very deserving of this award.” The Peter Schmid Sportsmanship Award recognizes standout players for their sportsmanship and attitude. Representatives from the Solana Beach Soccer Club presented Antonio with a plaque that read “Athlete of the Year” during a brief ceremony March 18 at La Colonia Park. “We take great pride in having our players show great sportsmanship,” said Jeff Lyle, president of the Solana Beach Soccer Club, which serves 400 players in kindergarten through 12th grade. “[Antonio] is a great role model to his teammates and to other kids who are watching,” added Peter Cavanagh, the Peter Schmid Award coordinator. “He never gives up. If they’re getting beat badly, he’s still out there playing as hard as he can.” Although the 2013-14 season was An-

tonio’s first with the Solana Beach Soccer Club, he has played the sport since he was in preschool. “I was very surprised,” Antonio said. “I’m honored.” Now 15 years old, Antonio said soccer has helped him develop sportsmanship and become organized on and off the field. “I am proud because he has never received an award for playing sports,” said Antonio’s mother, Maria Cruz. Her daughter and Antonio’s 12-year-old sister, Gissell, helped translate. In addition to playing for the Solana Beach Soccer Club, Antonio plays for a soccer team established by La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation, which works to improve Solana Beach’s Eden Gardens community. A representative from the foundation was in attendance at the award presentation. “Tony is very well respected and engaged,” said Manny Aguilar, president and board chairman of the foundation, which launched its youth soccer program more than a year ago. “He really is a good kid.” For more information about the Solana Beach Soccer Club, visit For more information about La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation, visit

TPHS soccer star overcomes injuries, headed to UC San Diego By Rob LeDonne Zoe Purcell was only 4 years old when she started playing soccer, but her passion for the sport runs in her family. Purcell, currently a senior at Torrey Pines High School, was born in Dublin, Ireland — a country rife with soccer fanatics (or as they call the sport over there, football.) “My whole family is from Ireland, and we follow the English Premier League,” she said from her Carmel Valley home. “We all actually visited England and Ireland over Christmas and went to a game. European sports have a different vibe for some reason. To go from watching it on TV to being there in person, it makes you want to be on the field. It was a greats feeling.” Fortunately for Purcell, she’s had plenty of great feelings playing on the field as part of the Torrey Pines Varsity Soccer team, which recently wrapped up its season by making it all the way to the state semifinals. “As a kid, I started playing competitively as soon as I was allowed,” Purcell said, alluding to her skill-set. “I started out a right defender, and now I’m a forward and mid-fielder. The first day my coach wanted me to switch positions — I wound up scoring six goals in a tournament and I’ve stuck with it since.” Along with Purcell’s hectic Torrey Pines schedule, she’s also active in the North County’s busy club soccer scene playing for Surf, which takes place during the high school’s off-season. However, amid all of Purcell’s success in soccer, her journey hasn’t been easy. “I’ve had some really bad years,” she remembers. “During my very first high school game in 2010, I tore my ACL and meniscus.

Zoe Purcell. Courtesy photo Seven months later, I re-tore my meniscus again, and then again. All told, I couldn’t play for two and a half years; it was absolutely terrible. I couldn’t put it into words if I had to.” During that time, Purcell was frustrated but kept her eye on the prize. “Never once did I think I was going to ever stop playing,” she explains. “I was always determined to get back on the field again.” As a result, even though

she wasn’t actually playing, Purcell rarely missed a practice or game to root her fellow teammates on. Tearing your ACL is typically a career-ending injury for any athlete, but not Purcell. She began playing once again in 2012 after four surgeries, and by then was both mentally and physically ready for the game. “Throughout it all, my parents were very supportive,” Purcell said. “They’ve always pushed me to keep playing and keep trying, and I did.” Her Surf coach, Ada Greenwood, was equally supportive and made sure to ease Purcell back into the game. “What I don’t want to do is make her play 60, 70 minutes in a row,” Greenwood explained to U-T San Diego this past summer. “That might be too much for her — not that she’ll hurt her knee, but she might pull a muscle or something.” Purcell, fresh off of being sidelined and armed with her newfound soccer strength and skills on the field, eventually overcame her injury in a big way. The powers that be at UC San Diego had been monitoring her recovery and skills, and liked what they saw. “They had seen me play and contacted me to offer a spot to come join their team,” she said. “I took it right away.” UC San Diego’s season starts gearing up in July, but until then Purcell is enjoying attending high school and looking forward to what’s to come. “It’s weird, but I’m extremely excited,” she says. “I’ve played with the same people since I can remember. UCSD will be a different environment, but I’m ready.”

as well as the U.S. attorney. “We’re always looking to improve,” she said. “There is a process by which any issues that come up are addressed. Recently they’ve expressed some concern about how cases have been handled when (officers) are injured and we looked nationwide at how those are handled.” While in her 2006 bid for re-election Dumanis garnered unanimous support from San Diego County law enforcement, Brewer now boasts the endorsement of 98 percent of local law endorsement — including the Deputy Sheriff’s Association of San Diego County, San Diego Police Officers Association, San Diego County Probation Officer’s Association and police associations in Carlsbad, Coronado, Oceanside, Escondido and other cities. “They’re sick and tired of her being a politician, they’ve told her that, and that’s one of the reasons why they didn’t endorse her in 2010,” Brewer said. “Then … she’s sworn in and 70 days later she announces the most political thing she could do — she runs for mayor.” Brewer claims Dumanis’s unsuccessful 2012 mayoral bid and history of making endorsements has politicized the district attorney’s office. (Her endorsements include Carl DeMaio, whom she backed in the 2012 mayor’s race after she came in fourth in the primary, and, more recently, the re-election of San Diego County Clerk Ernie Dronenberg, who has also endorsed Dumanis’s bid for reelection.) Brewer said he believes that, like the U.S. attorney — who is barred from engaging in partisan political activity (including endorsements and fundraising) under the Hatch Act, the district attorney should also not make endorsements. “I will never endorse anyone for any office — ever — when I’m the district attorney, and certainly never run for another office,” he said. Brewer said the district attorney holds an important responsibility to apply state law to politicians.

“When you become too close to the politicians, when you become a politician, you create layers of conflicts of interest — and this present district attorney, in 2011, 70 days after she was sworn in for a third term … became what she was supposed to be policing: a politician.” Brewer argues that Dumanis’ mayoral quest precluded the DA’s office from prosecuting disgraced ex-San Diego Mayor Bob Filner during last year’s sexual harassment and assault scandal. “The entire district attorney’s office was disqualified from investigating him … (and) infected with her bias against Filner because she spent 17 months running against him and because she endorsed Carl DeMaio,” Brewer said. “Not true,” Dumanis maintained. “Endorsing, by its very nature, does not require you to recuse yourself or not to handle a case. In this particular case … I proactively saw that there was going to be a criminal case, way before it got to be criminal. I called the attorney general’s office and the U.S. attorneys’ office so that we could talk about who the best prosecuting agency and the best police agency would be.” Though San Diego Police would normally work with the district attorney’s office on the case, Dumanis said reports of potential federal charges against Filner made the offices of the U.S. attorney and attorney general seem “a more appropriate agency” to handle the case. “We all decided together that the sheriff, as opposed to San Diego Police Department, would handle the investigation and the attorney general would handle the prosecution,” she said. “We helped with that in terms of giving advice and Mr. Filner was held accountable.” When forming her Public Integrity Unit in 2007 to root out political corruption, Dumanis said she would no longer endorse political candidates. However, she made an exception for races impacting public safety that Brewer said he considers too broad. “Once you make a commitment for no endorsements and then you qualify it, you’re on a slippery slope,” he said, noting that even Dumanis’ habit of endorsing judges could

prove problematic. “If that judge gets elected, invariably, (Dumanis) will have employees of hers appearing before that judge. I think the optics of that are terrible.” Dumanis said the DA’s office is not political, and that making endorsements is necessary. “I am in a political office, where I am elected, and whether we like it or not, we have to raise money, as my opponents are, and we have to get endorsements. We also have to endorse if we want to have a leadership role in the state on what I consider public safety issues,” she said. Dumanis, who also boasts the endorsement of the San Diego Police Chiefs’ and Sheriffs’ Association and the San Diego Deputy District Attorneys Association, said making endorsements helps her office gain a foothold in Sacramento. Following the lead of Sheriff Gore, Dumanis dedicates someone from her office to work on legislative affairs in Sacramento. “We’ve been very effective in getting laws passed and stopping laws that would be bad for public safety,” she said. “It’s about relationships, not politics. … As the district attorney I have created strong relationships in Sacramento, in Washington and in San Diego and those have benefitted the public safety of San Diego.” Dumanis said she believes Brewer’s hard-and-fast noendorsement vow would tie his hands as district attorney. “I’m not sure he’ll be able to get much done. I don’t know of any other DA or any other elected official who does no endorsements,” she said, noting that the state attorney generals and former San Diego County district attorneys Ed Miller and Paul Pfingst also made endorsements. “My opponent (Brewer), who works for a law firm and is taking money from people in law firms, will have a conflict built in there as well … if he takes money from people who may be defense attorneys practicing in criminal cases,” she said. “By the way, it’s the court that makes the decision — if it’s raised — as to whether or not the See ATTORNEY, page A26

Mrs. Paige Rollins: An exceptional person and teacher

Rant with Randi: Thank you Chelsea

By Tasia Mochernak It can be very difficult to break a cycle. As a high school sophomore, that cycle is school, stress and lack of sleep. This recurring, unyielding pattern seldom provides an opportunity for us to reflect on the happy years of elementary school with 15 minutes maximum of homework and all the leisure time in the world. The focus is on the future, not the past, and we are hardpressed to remember details of our lives from the fleeting glimpses we catch while continuing our cycle. Mrs. Paige Rollins, however, can see much more than a glimpse of everything, or at least, me. Mrs. Rollins was my second grade teacher at Del Mar Heights Elementary School. Everything about her exudes warmth, intelligence, kindness, familiarity — all the qualities of not only a wonderful second grade teacher, but also an exceptional person. Throughout the years, my thoughts have returned many times to the studies of Africa, vocabulary word jars, creative writing and an overall incredibly interesting learning environment that is Mrs. Rollins’ classroom. One of the main highlights of every second grader’s year is the “Bugs” musical, performed by student-insects going on a picnic. As a second grader, I was a ladybug, singing and dancing to “Be a Lady” along with many other girls. It is an exciting experience for any 7- or 8-yearold, but it remains the same year after year, especially for the teachers. For Mrs. Rollins, however, every year is absolutely special. Seven years later, after a wave of hundreds of other students had rolled in and out of her doors, Mrs. Rollins remembered my ladybug performance. When no parents volunteered to choreograph the ladybug dance like they had in the past, Mrs. Rollins contacted me and offered me the opportunity. Over a couple of months, she provided me with CDs, videos of past performances and endless support. While she and the

BY Randi Crawford I don’t even know where to start. Four years ago, I received a call from a friend, whose dear friend needed our help. Her daughter had gone jogging and wasn’t home at her usual time and, within minutes, her family knew something was terribly wrong. My friend asked if I would help to put up flyers around Poway to look for Chelsea King and so I jumped right on it. I remember how the community immediately sprang into action and people from all over San Diego were there to help. My friend told me that Brent King would never stop fighting for his daughter until the day he died. While I believed her then, I never would have believed what that family has accomplished in the four short years since that tragic day when a monster took her life. They established “Finish Chelsea’s Run” to literally finish the run that Chelsea never got to finish herself. From what I understand, they were expecting 100 people to show up for that first race. Instead, they were showered with 3,500 people the very first year. I’m not a runner, and I definitely don’t like getting up at the crack of dawn. But this year my daughter convinced me to register us for Chelsea’s Run because it really meant a lot to her. It rained all week and the weather channel said, “100 precipitation Saturday”... it didn’t say “chance” because 100 percent means there is no chance. This was going to be a wet, and cold race, but I still committed to my daughter and agreed that we would go unless there was thunder and lightning. (You know I prayed for thunder and lightning, right?) My sister and her daughter ran with us, which made the experience incredibly special. And then the most magical thing happened. My alarm went off at 5:30 a.m. and there was no rain. I thought I must have still been sleeping because it had to be raining, but there was none. So I prayed for it to just hold off a little more, at least until the end of the race, chugged two cups of

coffee, and headed out the door. When we arrived, it was gorgeous outside. The sun was shining, the skies were blue, and it hit me harder than I had imagined. The only way to explain it is that you just felt Chelsea’s presence all around. It was an intensely emotional experience. The next thing that bowls you over is the magnitude of people. They announced that it was close to 10,000 supporters this year, and again a flood of emotions took over my body. While we were lining up for the run, Brent King started talking, and he told us to “Jump in all the puddles because that’s what Chelsea would have done,” and by now the swell of emotion was enormous. I wish that I could better describe the feeling that takes over your body, because it’s almost an out-of-body experience. You just want to hug every single person that you see running alongside you. When I looked around, there were so many smiling faces, young and old, teams, groups, schools, and volunteers, and it was so uplifting, knowing that you’re all there for the same reason. While I was running, a teenage boy put his hand out to give me a “high-five” just because, and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. My sister knew some of the volunteers and it made me so proud of all the kids, who inspired us and cheered us on along the way. I may stink at running, and my legs almost fell off my body, but I can honestly say that experience was one of the best days ever. And to all my doubters, there were no paddy wagons carting me to the finish line, I got there all on my own. We have an amazing community and it was a huge honor to be a part of something so special. May God bless the families of Amber Dubois and Chelsea King, and I hope to see you next year at Finish Chelsea’s Run, I’ll be there with sunflowers in my hair. What say you?

Mrs. Paige Rollins visiting her class and the ladybugs. Courtesy photo other second grade teachers coordinated their schedules to fit in convenient practice times for me, I endeavored to break out of my high school cycle and absorb some of the ordinary, pure excitement and enthusiasm from the second graders I taught. At the same time, Mrs. Rollins wrote a detailed letter describing my achievements to the Del Mar Times, and asked the newspaper to write an article about me — even though I owed the success of the show to her. After the delight that many students, parents and staff expressed about the musical, I could see that Mrs. Rollins’ simple request had developed into more that just some volunteer hours for me. It became an activity that I would enjoy continuously throughout my high school years. As I am writing this, the dress rehearsal and final performance of this year’s “Bugs” musical are drawing closer. In some ways, this year’s ladybug performance is even more special to me. My little sister, Natalia, a second grader in Mrs. Rollins’ class, will perform the dance that I choreographed, continuing the legacy. Unfortunately, Mrs. Rollins cannot entirely participate in the rearing of a new generation of fun-loving insects. Mrs. Rollins was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2013. Since then, she has undergone treatment at various facilities in Texas and California while Mrs. Meaghann Denyer has been teaching in her absence. In order to repay Mrs. Rollins for her many years of love and commitment to all of her students and Del Mar Heights Elementary School, students, parents and staff have united to provide Mrs. Rollins with dinners and support her while she is away from her beloved classroom. On designated days, teachers and staff wear shirts decorated with the words “Team Paige” to raise awareness of breast cancer and encourage Mrs. Rollins to continue her fight. Additionally, Team Paige members make entertaining videos and take photos of her past and present students’ growth and accomplishments, supplementing those with products of love such as a large, decorated ceramic heart and many handwritten notes. Parents of former and current students sign up to participate in a Meal Train, cooking meals for Mrs. Rollins and her family three times a week. Simply returning the love, attention and encouragement that Mrs. Rollins has always provided can be enough to help her overcome each and every obstacle in her way. If Mrs. Rollins has touched your life in any way, whether with great influence or with just a small act of kindness, I encourage you to “be the change you wish to see in the world” and take action to aid Mrs. Rollins in her fight against breast cancer. To Mrs. Rollins: Thank you for all you have done for Natalia and me. We wish you all the best in the world! To participate in Mrs. Rollins’ Meal Train, visit www.


Footnotes and fragments BY GORDON CLANTON Keynoter. California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsome will speak Thursday, April 3, at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. Info at www. Either Newsome or Attorney General Kamala Harris is likely to be the next governor of California four-plus years from now – sooner if Jerry Brown runs for president. Newsome, former mayor of San Francisco and an early advocate for same-sex marriage, announced for governor four years ago before bowing to the inevitability of Jerry Brown. Newsome is available for speeches like this because, as lieutenant governor, he has nothing to do. City Hall? A recent survey of residents of the City of Del Mar shows strong community support for building a new city hall on the city-owned site of the current City Hall, a former schoolhouse built in 1956. The old building is in the last stages of deterioration and decay, almost half the space used only for storage because of seismic instability. A com-

concepts: The Rail and the Foul Pole Suite. The Rail is Petco Park’s version of the Green Monster seats at Fenway Park, with an elevated bar rail on the patio deck of the Hall of Fame Bar and Grill, with in-seat service. The Foul Pole Suite along the third base line is a 12-person, semi-private suite with corner access seats on the Rail. Dee said the Padres will fit businesses of all shapes and sizes and at different price points. Gordon Cooke, who spent the last nine years as director of sales and marketing for The Bridges, is now the senior director of Padres Premium Plus. Padres Premium Plus is a new venture to engage local businesses and provide the most elite guest experience in the sports and entertain-

ment industry, including unique seating, five-star food and beverages, partner networking and speaking engagements. Premium Plus is designed to help local businesses “do more business” with customized plans and focus on generating a positive return on investment. Craig Edwards, owner of Rancho Santa Fe Insurance, talked about how he successfully uses the Padres as a business tool. He said he gets twice as many compliments when he sends clients to the ballgame than when he sent clients to another event. “Business-wise it has been a great deal,” Edwards said.

with the city’s general plan. In an email with Freeman, he specified that there are 775 parcels in the R1-10 zone throughout Del Mar. Of these, 266 are nonconforming and 71 are also in the Wildland Urban Interface zone, which essentially creates a buffer between development and the Torrey Pines State Reserve. Using the city’s online tool at delmar.geoviewer8. com, Freeman discovered there are no other parcels smaller than 5,000 square feet in the R1-10 zone that are designated as Wildland Urban Interface. The next largest nonconforming parcel in the zone is 5,130 square feet, according to the data. If the Hidden Pines Road property is sold for development, Freeman said he is concerned it will set a precedent that Del Mar will “move toward concrete and money rather than open space in the community.” “The drive to turn currently open space into developed properties is going to be amplified in the future,” Freeman said. “I think that’s not widely appreciated.” This wouldn’t be the

Along the way, the book puts the reader into life in Depression-era America with vivid clarity. In their gold medal

If they purchase the city-owned property, Rita van Rooyen said she and her husband would not change the plans for their yet-to-be-built home and would keep the plot as open space. There have been at least two other instances where residents have helped purchase property in the city to preserve it as open space. Unlike the Hidden Pines Road property, however, the parcels had been private property. In 1978, the city created a special assessment district after neighbors jointly purchased private property on Luneta Drive. In 1995, the city and a group of residents cooperatively purchased private property on Crest Road. Residents raised $91,125 and the city committed $80,000 in open space funds and a $16,306 loan to preserve the land as open space. Although the date has not yet been scheduled, city staff could bring the Hidden Pines Road issue before the council again as early as April 7 during a closed session. Real estate negotiations are closed session discussions, Delin said. “When it’s firmed up, we’ll certainly let people in the area know,” he said.

race, the boys had nearly reached their physical limits as the finish line approached. The event attracted 75,000 screaming spectators, including the Nazi high command. “Somewhere, deep down inside, each of them grasped at shreds of will and strength they did not know they possessed. Their hearts were pumping at nearly two hundred beats per minute now. They were utterly beyond exhaustion, beyond what their bodies should be able to endure,” Brown wrote of the race’s climax. Brown took great pains to accurately depict the intricacies of rowing and the intense interest in the sport in 1930s America, when as

many as 100,000 would turn out to watch a regatta. But in the end, the story was about the nine boys. “These were kids who grew up in mill towns and fishing towns in the Northwest. They grew strong wielding axes and hay forks. They were nine really nice young men, all good-hearted and they remained that way for the rest of their lives. They’re just a bunch of really good guys,” he said. For more information, visit “The Boys in the Boat” is available on, at Barnes & Noble ( and more.

“We want to customize an iconic seat experience,” Dee said. The Padres offer experiences such as the Lexus Home Plate Club or the On-Deck Suite, an on-field suite for eight adjacent to the visitors’ dugout. Dee said businesses can send clients to the game and they will likely say it is the best experience they’ve ever had at a sporting event and that will make an investment with the Padres well worth it. “It’s incumbent on us to make that experience great and we spend a lot of time on it,” Dee said.

In the Dec. 19 column, I complained about excessive fence building at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. The fence-ification of the park is continuing. More fencing is planned. As I feared, the park has an unlimited supply of free peeled-pole fencing and an unlimited supply of free Boy Scout labor. If you share my concern about the over-fencing of the park we love, contact Ranger Dylan How green?

East County Republican Duncan Hunter received a score of 4 percent, thus finishing just ahead of North County Republican Darrell Issa with a score of zero. Nowhere to go but up, Congressman Issa. Dirty tricks. The LA Times (2/9/14) reports that the National Republican Congressional Committee, in preparation for the 2014 elections, bought up hundreds of URLs and created deceptive websites appearing to support Democratic candidates while seeking to damage them.

first time Del Mar has sold city-owned property. In 2010, the city sold a 22,215-square-foot lot on Balboa Avenue for $4.4 million. Del Mar used the funds to pay off the city’s debt on the Shores property and fund the Beach Safety Center. “The important point to note is that as a city asset, this parcel belongs to all of the residents of Del Mar, and if sold, the funds could be used to help fund a variety of city projects that would benefit the community,” Delin said. Currently, the city’s Finance Committee is evaluating other city-owned parcels for potential sale, he added. “The council may or may not determine to sell any other property,” Delin said. An appraisal on the Hidden Pines Road property has been completed, but the parcel has not yet been listed for sale. Delin could not disclose any other details about the appraisal. Although the value of the land has not yet been disclosed, Carmel Valley residents Pieter van Rooyen and Rita van Rooyen have already made an offer. The couple purchased the currently undeveloped land bordering the eastern side of the parcel in 2012.

DMCV Sharks GU17 Elite repeat as Blue Division National League Champions — team is heading to Nationals again DMCV Sharks GU17 Elite (above) clinched a return trip to the US Youth Soccer National Championships by repeating as the Blue Division National League Champions. In December, the Sharks traveled to North Carolina to play four National League games. The team went 3-1, losing to NSA Jaguars from Illinois but ended the weekend in a three-way tie at the top of the bracket with Jaguars and So Cal rival Legends. This past weekend, the Sharks were in Las Vegas playing three tough games to close out the League. A top-two spot was earned with a 1-0 win in a tough battle over So Cal rival Legends on Saturday. The Sharks then earned their second National League title with a 2-0 win on Sunday over NEFC Elite from Massachusetts. “This year I told the girls we needed to DREAM BIG!” Coach Felicia Kappes said. “They needed to visualize themselves back at the US Youth Championships. Dream big for our team, our club, ourselves, our goals, and our seniors. It was so much more difficult to qualify, but we found a way to win. One of the most important themes we have had is that we want to send our seniors off with one incredible final run, and winning the National League guarantees that we will,” Kappes continued. “Losing six teammates in another four months from a team that is exceptionally close is emotional.” Those six moving on to college life at the end of the summer provided great motivation for the Sharks team. Congratulations to Coach Kappes, Gianna, Hannah, Mari, Melissa, Sam, Shelby, Rachel, Natalie, Sydney, Dominque, Jennifer, Angel, Hailey, Brooklyn, Kirsten, Jordan, Crystal, Huli, Zisi.

continued from page A2 gram,” said board chair Kathryn Burton. “The school isn’t just the site by itself and in the small community of Torrey Hills it’s a really integral part of the community. I hope the district will look at what’s coming down the pike in the neighborhood as far as traffic.” Burton was referring to the already congested intersection of Calle Mar de Mariposa and Ocean Air Drive and the 484 townhouse/apartment units that are planned adjacent to that busy intersection. The 384-unit Garden Communities project is currently under construction on the corner and is expected to be first occupied in June this year, and a 100-unit MBK Homes development next door is expected to be done in October. A few years ago, Burton commissioned a traffic study for Via Mar de Delfinas, a street that leads to the school and park from Ocean Air Drive. Traffic often gets diverted to Via Mar de Delfinas to avoid the busy Calle Mar de Mariposa intersection and the study showed the number of car trips on the street was approximately four times the number in the community plan. “That neighborhood area is quite impacted and shouldn’t be regarded as an alternative route,” Burton said. Any additional trips generated by the CDC would be “devastating” to the neighborhood, Burton said. “Children should be able to walk to school without encountering a dangerous traffic condi-

those funds could legally be used to build something that will serve children from outside the community. “As a taxpayer, that’s money intended for the school in my community,” Hall said. “It’s objectionable to me to serve students from another part of the district that don’t pay into CFDs.” Cathy Birks, assistant superintendent of business services, said that’s one of the things they are looking into, if those CFD funds can be used in this case. She said the district continues to “think outside the box” on other funding sources that can be used. Burton also voiced concerns about the potential build site on campus. A 16-year resident in the community, Burton said she remembers when the school site was a huge canyon and the spot where DMUSD is proposing to build is where there was the most amount of fill. Burton wondered if the fill would even be able to hold the building. Dee Snow, project manager of Garden Communities, noted that the district is not required to do an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) or traffic studies, and she advocated that the district keep everyone informed on what it is doing throughout the process. Rafner said that while an EIR may not be required, plans must go through the Division of State Architects and it is still a “rigorous” review process. McClurg said it is very important to the district to keep an open dialogue with the community and hear community members’ concerns.

tion. My driving force is making our neighborhood a safe place for pedestrians, particularly children pedestrians,” Burton said. McClurg agreed that safety is always a priority for the district. “We want all of the children to be safe coming to school,” McClurg said. “(The issue) will be thoroughly looked at.” McClurg reported that Torrey Hills has the capacity to increase with a CDC at the location as enrollment has been dropping since a peak in 2006-07 when there were 784 students in the school. Currently they have 615 students with capacity for 898. According to projections prepared by the district’s consultant The Dolinka Group, Torrey Hills’ enrollment is expected to continue to decline, dropping off every year to a low of 580 in 2022. Torrey Hills parents have frequently questioned how that is possible with all the new construction, but the Dolinka Group has maintained that typically apartment units generate fewer children than singlefamily detached homes. Per statewide averages, for every 10 homes, roughly four children are produced for the district; for apartment complexes it takes 10 units to produce one child. McClurg said another way the district could look to mitigate traffic concerns is staggering start and end times for the CDC and school. Per the funding issue, board member Suzanne Hall pointed out that neighborhood residents have been paying MelloRoos fees into the Community Funded District (CFD) for their community school and she wondered whether

office should be recused.” Brewer also noted Dumanis’ involvement in an ongoing financial contribution scandal in which the federal government has indicted four people — two of whom worked on Dumanis’ mayoral campaign and one who funneled $200,000 in

foreign contributions to an independent expenditure supporting her candidacy. Federal law prohibits foreign nationals from donating to U.S. political campaigns. “There could be an incredible number of state violations in those transactions — money laundering, conspiracy, disclosure,” Brewer said. “Again, her office can’t look at them, because she’s in the middle of them.” The answer, Brewer contends, is a change of leadership. “I’m a firm believer in term limits,” he said. —To read more of this interview, visit

Del Mar resident named one of 78th Assembly District’s ‘Women of the Year’ By Kristina Houck From preserving the San Dieguito Lagoon, to providing services to seniors, Nancy Weare has worked to enrich Del Mar and the greater San Diego region since she moved to the coastal community in 1969. Recently named one of 78th Assembly District’s 2014 “Women of the Year” by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins (D-San Diego), Weare’s more than four decades of service will be celebrated during a reception March 28 at the State of California office building in San Diego. “It is so nice. I didn’t expect it,” said Weare, a semi-retired senior research chemist at UC San Diego. “It feels really nice when other people appreciate your work.” With a desire to create a sense of community and offer services to seniors and people with special needs, Weare founded Del Mar Community Connections in 1999. From educational and social activities, to in-home care management consultations and transportation services, the volunteerdriven organization offers a variety of programs for community members. “It’s grown and grown,” Weare said. “We’re very much supported by the city.” A Connecticut-based senior center inspired Weare to form DMCC. After her father’s death, the center sent a counselor to help Weare and her family cope with their loss. “I realized we didn’t have anything like that

in Del Mar,” Weare said. “There may have been in San Diego, but we were a little hole in the area with a lot of people who could definitely have used the help.” Almost 21 percent of Del Mar residents are 65 or older, according to the 2010 census. The growth of DMCC has proved the city’s sizable senior population needs the organization’s services. Located in the Del Mar Community Building at 225 Ninth St., DMCC has grown from a handful of founding members to two staff members, 15 board members and dozens of volunteers. “There have been a lot of people who have been of great help and continue to be,” Weare said. “I think this will be a long-term program in the city.” Weare has been involved in the community since she and her husband first moved to Del Mar. In the early 1970s, Weare and other concerned residents began drafting a plan to preserve and restore the San Dieguito Lagoon. The group officially established the San Dieguito Lagoon Committee in 1974 to See WOMEN, page B8

Funds raised at the April 26 event in Rancho Santa Fe will help children in Guatemala. Courtesy photo By Stacey Phillips Imagine making a difference in a family’s life in just an hour. That’s all the time it takes for the Maya Relief Foundation to improve the quality of lives for Maya families in Guatemala by providing a fuel-efficient stove and water filter. Randie Reinhart, who started the foundation with her husband Leon on July 4, 2002, said they hope to provide stoves to more than 100,000 families within the next five years. “There are seven-and-a-half-million Maya families out there out of a population of 15 million,” she said. “We need to touch as many of these families as we can.” Based in Rancho Santa Fe, the Maya Relief Foundation is holding a fashion show and silent auction to raise money to purchase the stoves and water filters that will benefit indigenous families in the highlands of rural Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. The show will be held April 26 at the Rancho Santa Fe Community Center starting at 5:30 p.m. Standing room tickets are $35 and cover the cost of one water filter; general seating is $70 and will pay for two water filters; and VIP front row seating is $110 and will cover the cost of a fuel-efficient stove. “One hundred percent of the ticket sales is going directly to help these people,” said Jenny Donaldson, a volunteer from the Maya Relief Foundation who is coordinating the fashion show called FLOW. Professionally directed by Gia Nina Bodarocco, the show features Harper’s Bazaar models presenting apparel from local boutiques. Hor d’oeuvres will be served prior to the fashion show beginning. There will be a silent auction and local accessories vendors with items to purchase, all contributing to the foundation.

The Maya Relief Foundation was established as the Reinhart Family Foundation 12 years ago with the intent of serving the humanitarian needs of the poor in Latin America. Soon after, the Reinharts decided to focus on ways to assist the Maya with their health and well-being as well as help them become self-sustainable. After living abroad in mostly developing countries for 30 years, the family relocated to San Diego in 1996. They had lived in Iran, Panama, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Bahrain, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and Mexico. Reinhart said she always felt a special connection with the people in these countries and wanted to do something to help them. “Since day one we tried to come up with good solutions to the problems of the Maya indigenous

people,” she said. “We could see what was the most beneficial thing for the most needy people.” The Reinharts and their son Rob work full-time for the foundation and other family members assist when they can. Alex Ingersoll from the Maya Relief Foundation said that Maya women’s lives revolve around cooking and they usually stand in front of huge fires built on a wooden pallet called a polleton inside their homes. The families breathe in toxic fumes from the fires, which cause eye irritations and respiratory problems. In order to address this, the foundation replaces the Maya’s open cooking fires with a fuel-efficient EkoStove. “It radically changes these people’s lives,” said Ingersoll. The cleaner burning stove emits little smoke and allows the women to cook in substantially less time. In addition to having cleaner air, Reinhart said their respiratory illnesses decline dramatically due to the decreased amount of smoke. The stove also has a flue that carries any excess smoke or gases out of the house. Because the stove uses 70 percent less firewood, the women do not have to spend as much time looking for wood but instead have time to make handicrafts they can sell in the marketplace, which is a source of income for them. “The women like to have beauty around them and when you have a dirt See MAYA, page B20

By Karen Billing Broadway is coming to Carmel Valley as former NFL player Bo Eason brings his critically-acclaimed one-man show, “Runt of the Litter,” to the San Diego Marriott Del Mar Grand Ballroom on Friday, May 2. The rare theater opportunity is being presented by Carmel Valley-based business Make Market Launch IT and Pam and Chris Hendrickson. A portion of the proceeds from the show will benefit Torrey Pines Pop Warner Football. The performance is part of the three-day Make Market Launch IT live business training seminar presented by Pam Hendrickson and her partner Mike Koenig. “We are thrilled to bring Bo and his powerful play to Del Mar,” said Pam. “Bo’s themes of sheer will and determination, and what it takes to be the best, really resonate with any parent, entrepreneur or business leader.” Eason played four years in the NFL with the Houston Oilers in the 1980s and the safety had a reputation as one of the hardest hitters in the league, Chris said. His play is a semi-autobiographical story about him and his older brother, Tony, who played quarterback for seven years in the NFL with the New England Patriots and the New York Jets, reaching the Super Bowl with the Patriots in 1986. The play details how the older brother, Tony, was destined for stardom, casting a shadow over the little brother. Bo decides he wants to be like his brother and creates a roadmap of how to get to the NFL despite everyone telling him he’ll never make it. He decides he will catch 1,000 passes a day but he

Through an artist’s eyes, darkly: ‘Red’ comes to the SD REP By Lonnie Burstein Hewitt In 1999, San Diego-born playwright John Logan first hit the big time with his screenplay for “Any Given Sunday,” directed by Oliver Stone, with a high-profile cast including Al Pacino. Ten years later, after Oscar-nominated screenplays for “Gladiator” and “The Aviator,” his play “Red,” about abstract artist Mark Rothko, was produced in London, starring Alfred Molina. It moved on to Broadway, winning a Tony and other awards for Best Play in 2010. Now, at last, this acclaimed drama is coming to San Diego, opening at the REP on April 4. Last September, the REP presented another artistcentered piece, Herbert Siguenza’s one-man tour-de-force, “A Weekend with Picasso.” “Red” is a piece of a different color, a two-man powerhouse that plumbs the depths of an artist’s psyche and creative process. “This play feels like a spiritual séance,” said Sam Woodhouse, artistic director of San Diego REPertory Theatre. “It begins and ends with the image of Rothko staring out into the audience at one of his paintings, trying to hear what it says to him.” The director of “Red” is Michael Arabian, a newcomer to the REP but not to the world of theater. He is especially known in Los Angeles, where he directed a multi-awardwinning production of “Waiting for Godot” at the Mark Taper Forum in 2012. Playing Rothko is John Vickery, who played both Romeo and Macbeth at La Jolla Playhouse in the 1980s, and whose Broadway credits include originating the role of the villainous Scar in “The Lion King.” Vick-

John Vickery plays artist Mark Rothko and Jason Maddy his fictional assistant in ‘Red,’ opening April 4 at San Diego REP April 4. Photo/Sandra Small ery divides his time between L.A. and Canada, where he performs at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. This will be his first appearance at the REP. “It’s an interesting challenge for me, at this point in my life,” he said. “’Red’ is really a psychodrama between two guys, the old and the new generation, and when I first

read it, I thought: whoa, this is very applicable to me! I’m about the age Rothko was then, and I know what it’s like to feel like you’re losing your powers, can’t do the things you used to. The challenge is: how to present this to an audience.” There were other challenges, too, Vickery said. “A lot of the play is talking about art, and I have to make it come off as deeply felt, without sounding ponderous. And there’s an awful lot of technical stuff we have to do — priming, mixing paints, climbing up to reach the canvases. We have an artist coaching us; we want to get things right.” Vickery had never met Michael Arabian before, but knew his reputation. “I didn’t audition for him; we just had a long meeting and talked about art. We got along, and knew we could work well together.” The same good feelings came up in the first reading, when Vickery met Jason Maddy, the young actor playing Rothko’s assistant. “I turned to him and said: ‘You’re gonna be great!’ “ Vickery looks forward to uncovering more layers of Rothko, and presenting his larger-than-life-size character onstage. “It’s been almost 30 years since I worked in San Diego,” he said. “It’s nice to be back.” —If you go: “Red” runs matinees, evenings through April 27 at The Lyceum Stage, San Diego REPertory Theatre, 79 Horton Plaza (4 hours free parking with theater validation).

Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito seeks donations for kitchen and garden project at branch in Encinitas By Kristina Houck For nearly five years, children have learned how to live healthier lives by cooking and gardening at a yellow cottage in Solana Beach. Opened in April 2009, the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s Center for a Healthy Lifestyle features a teaching kitchen, classroom space and an interactive garden, offering after-school programming and summer camps for children, as well as classes for adults. Because of the success of the center, the nonprofit organization is raising money to open a second center at the Griset Branch in Encinitas. Members of the public were invited the see the progress of the project during an open house on March 20. “This has always been my dream,” said Del Mar resident Barbara Harper, the center’s founder. “We’re hoping to spread this to all the Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation.” To expand its programs, the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito opened a garden at its Del Mar Branch in May 2011, and another garden at its La Colonia Branch in November 2012. Mirrored after the first center at 533 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, the proposed second center at 1221 Encinitas Blvd. will feature an interactive, half-acre organic garden and commercial-like kitchen classroom. Amanda Mascia, the children’s chef at the Center for a Healthy Lifestyle, said she is looking forward to teaching cooking classes at the Encinitas branch. “The kids are really energetic and enthusiastic,” said Mascia, who currently teaches at the Solana Beach site. She is also creator and host of the Emmy-award winning healthy kids cooking show, “The Good Food Factory.” “I cook really large healthy meals with them and they’re super pumped. They love it, and I have a blast,” she said. “It’s very hands-on. They do all the cooking and I guide them through it.” Already under construction, the kitchen is expected to be completed in June. In addition to appliances and equipment, the kitchen will also be connected to a snack shop, where children will sell the food they prepare. “Solana Beach doesn’t seem that far, but a lot more kids in Encinitas will be able to enjoy this,” Mascia said. “There are a lot of children here who are really excited about it because they haven’t been able to participate before.” To date, the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito has raised $100,000 for the kitchen. The organization needs another $25,000 to complete the first phase, and an additional $125,000 to create the garden, which is the second phase of the project.

(Above) $125,000 is needed to create the garden — the second phase of the project. Photos/Kristina Houck Construction of the garden — which will feature trees, plants, an orchard, an herb garden, a greenhouse, picnic tables, benches and more — is set to begin in the summer. “Kids will learn how to eat healthy and live a healthier life, and they will also learn other skills they can use later in life,” said Harper, who encouraged community members to consider contributing to the project through sponsorships, naming opportunities and donations. “This project covers so many aspects.”

prepare a plan to protect, revitalize and manage the lagoon ecosystem in anticipation of the California Coastal Act. The San Dieguito Lagoon — which was recommended for top priority acquisition by the California Department of Fish and Game and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service — was defined by the California Coastal Commission as a sensitive resource area worthy of special protection under the California Coastal Act when it was enacted in 1976. “I always loved nature. I couldn’t just let the lagoon go,” said Weare, who added that the committee developed the San Dieguito Lagoon Enhancement program, which the city adopted in 1979.

“But you don’t do anything by yourself. I love Del Mar because the people here are so active. You can get them excited; you can get them to work hard. You can’t do it without the support of many, many people.” Recognizing that the lagoon couldn’t ultimately be saved without preserving the river valley, Weare and her fellow advocates went a step further and formed the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy in 1986. She served as the first president of the nonprofit organization, which raises funds to acquire land along the river valley through grants, donations and mitigation. The conservancy, along with the committee and the Friends of the San Dieguito River Valley, encouraged the formation of a multijurisdictional task

To date, the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito has raised $100,000 for the kitchen. The organization needs another $25,000 to complete the first phase. For more information about the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, visit To learn more about the project or to donate, visit

force under SANDAG to create the San Dieguito River Valley Park. In 1989, the task force became a separate Joint Powers Authority to implement and manage the river park. “This area is so beautiful,” Weare said. “You’re supposed to preserve things for the future.” The “Women of the Year” honorees will be celebrated during a reception from 3-4 p.m. March 28 in the sixth floor auditorium of the State of California office building at 1350 Front St. in San Diego.

San Diego’s largest ballroom dance studio, Fred Astaire, will be launching a children’s dance program in May 2014. Specifically planned for children ages 7 to 14, Fred Astaire’s children’s program will feature a comprehensive three-month curriculum, culminating in an exciting end-of-term spotlight performance. Students will meet twice a week, working in pairs and individually to learn a variety of dance styles. Each day will be divided into two sessions: the first de-

voted to learning steps and techniques and the second focused on choreography for the final performance. Ballroom dance provides children with a creative outlet, in addition to teaching essential life skills such as discipline, respect, fitness and confidence.

Since 1947, Fred Astaire Dance Studios has

had one of the most effective systems for learning social dance in the world. The studio focuses on several aspects of dance such as footwork, patterns, partnership, confidence, animation timing and rhythm.

eachers and students on tricycles zipped around the Carmel Valley Middle School campus with blazing speed during the annual Bobcat 500 on March 18. The race, part of the school’s Spirit Week, served as exciting entertainment for the lunchtime crowd.

Vermilyea is an art teacher at the school and the ASB advisor; Busch is a campus supervisor.

floor you have to create beauty in a different way. They do that in their clothing and what they weave,â&#x20AC;? said Reinhart. A portable Ektofiltro water filter is also given to the families by the foundation, which provides clean water. The families no longer have to collect wood to boil their water and intestinal illnesses due to poor water quality are substantially decreased. Reinhart said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very moving, you feel a loving feeling that you have given a little kid a cold glass of water.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the stove and water filter, both made in Guatemala, the foundation works with

families in other ways to help improve their lives. They assist them with planting a garden so they learn to vary their diet. The garden provides them with cash crops the families can sell or barter with. The foundation also supplies the women with multi-nutritional vitamins donated by the Kirk Humanitarian Foundation. Finally, the Maya Relief Foundation pays a local social worker from the village to help families maintain the stove and water filter for a year, as well as teaching them basic health lessons. A year ago Reinhart formed a group in San Diego called Women 2 Women to help support the needs of the foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerful for our ladies here to see the ladies

there,â&#x20AC;? said Reinhart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They really are kindred spirits.â&#x20AC;? There is a Teen 2 Teen component of this group that plans fundraisers like lip-syncing contests and a mother-daughter tea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are great needs around the world and we, with an abundance, sharing just a modest amount can make such a difference in a familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life in the Third World,â&#x20AC;? said Reinhart. Ticket to FLOW can be purchased on-line or at the event. More information about the Maya Relief Foundation is available on its web site: http://www.

SHOW continued from page B3 speaker at the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last two conferences, but they wanted to do something different this year. People come from all over the world to attend the conference; more than 14 countries were represented at the last event. Pam and Chris Hendrickson worked 40 years collectively for life coach and motivational speaker Tony Robbins, with many years of experience in event planning. Chris was in sales and Pam was the vice president of content development and eventually ran the marketing department as well. Pam came up with an idea three years ago for a product creation system called Make Market Launch It, helping people discover strategies to create best-selling products and services. Her partner, Koenigs, is the inventor of two widely-used Internet tools, Traffic Geyser and Instant Customer. Both simplify marketing for more than 30,000 small businesses, entrepreneurs, authors, experts, speakers and consultants worldwide. While their conference attendees have had the opportunity to hear Easonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motivational speaking for the last two years, because the play is open to the public it is a chance for others to hear his inspirational message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bo is tremendously powerful,â&#x20AC;? Chris said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody considers Tony Robbins the best theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen, but Bo really rivals him.â&#x20AC;? The Friday, May 2, show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $67 and $27 for children over the age of 12. The play has some strong language. For tickets, call (858) 720-8720 or visit For more on the three-day Make Market Launch event, visit The San Diego Marriott Del Mar is located at 11966 El Camino Real, San Diego, CA 92130.

The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN For all you gustatory pranksters and adventure seekers, here’s a line-up of funky food foolery—no kidding—all true except for a pair of imposters. Check out next week’s column to reveal the fake flakes. Coal Cloves Black garlic is on the culinary radar of top chefs around the globe, pushing the pale sibling under the table. This black beauty achieves its dark hue, complex sweet and savory flavor blend and delicate dried fruit texture from one month of natural fermenta-

tion. Black garlic is better on many other levels, having twice the antioxidant oomph as raw garlic without the bad breath, acerbic bite and stinky aroma. The Skinny Cow Ranchers, plastic surgeons and veterinarians have partnered in a technique to siphon off fat from strategic areas of cattle to produce leaner beef. Similar to liposuction in human patients, the bovineplasty reduces marbleization and concentrations of fatty deposits, particularly in the rump region. The result is a less fatty, lower cholesterol meat. Salad Sips Teaphiles can now relish a jolly good cup of steaming vegetable-infused brew. Move over pedestrian pekoe and other sweet teas thanks to Numi’s super savory blends, such as, tomato mint, fennel with orange peel, spinach greens with notes of citrus, broccoli and bright cilantro, curry ginger with a side of sweet carrots, and ruby red beets with pungent cabbage.

The Lay’s Lottery Lay’s has launched a “Do Us a Flavor” campaign in search of a winning seasoning concept. This game of chance has no downside, with a payout of $1 million to the creator of the company’s fave flave. Recent submissions include, Kosher Dill Pickle, Curry Chicken, Chocolate Covered Bacon, Kimchi Cabbage, Lobster Diablo, Coffee Bean and Truffle Oil and Parmesan. Real chips off the old block. It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature Genetic engineers have collaborated with a team of pumpkin farmers, tinkering with the gourd seeds by infusing them with a spice combo of nutmeg and cinnamon. The novel variety has been named, “Instant Pumpkin Pie.” Wacky Wiki A French-American Harvard engineer invented a futuristic product called Wikicells. David Edwards’ eco-friendly and edible wrap for assorted foods was inspired by the

self-containing cellulose membranes and peels on fruits. The edible “skin” is composed of a blend of chocolate, fruit, nut and grain particles with a cohesive biochemical polymer to hold it together. These soft, moisture-retentive shells encapsulate everything from yoghurt and ice cream to coffee, cocktails and juice. Frankenfruits The difference between hybridization, which has been going on since the dawn of agriculture, and GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms) is that the former blends two breeds or cultivars within the same family (like a tangelo, a citrus cross of a tangerine and a grapefruit), while the latter involves cross species combinations giving rise to novel genes. These include blending “anti-freeze genes” from cold-water fish like Sea Flounder or Arctic Char with a peach, tomato or strawberry to create frost-resistant fruit. Sounds pretty fishy to me. Or when a Gala or Fuji apple hooks up with a grape—out comes a Grapple.

The Toast of the Town The latest culinary snack and breakfast craze has been artisanal toast. Cafes and diners throughout the land have menu offerings of $4.00 slices of naked toast, golden brown and warmed to an optimum temperature to maintain the internal integrity of the hand-crafted bread. For an additional cost patrons can enjoy a nostalgic slather of buttery cinnamon sugar, peanut butter with banana coins or a chocolate hazelnut spread with chopped nuts. Not so crummy. Try concocting this delicious organic spread at home for your toast or bagel. It’ll save you a bundle. And that’s no joke.

Maple Pecan Butter from Scratch (Where possible, use organics) 1 cup raw pecans 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup Sea salt to taste A few drops of vanilla extract Drizzle of almond or walnut oil Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.


Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Layer the sheet with nuts and drizzle with maple syrup. Bake until lightly toasted. Cool. Place nuts in a food processor, add salt and extract. Process for several minutes until desired consistency is reached. For creamier texture, drizzle nut oil while processing. Store in an airtight container or glass jar in the refrigerator. Enjoy also on pancakes, waffles, granola, yoghurt or as a sundae topping for ice cream.
