Public invited to weigh in on senior facility BY KAREN BILLING A scoping meeting for Hacienda Del Mar, the proposed senior facility on Via de la Valle, will be held on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. at Torrey Pines High School’s lecture hall. At the meeting, members of the public are invited to provide input on what the environmental impact

report (EIR) for the project should study. The proposed project is located next to the polo fields on some of the last acres of open space in the San Dieguito River Valley. As the project has moved through the planning phases, neighbors have expressed concerns about density, community character

and water as the lot sits in a floodplain. Developer Milan Capital’s plan is for Hacienda Del Mar to have less than 10-percent lot coverage, with the remainder of the 23.87-acre site used for dedicated open space. The plan includes four one-story buildings of independent and assisted

he Torrey Pines High School Scholarship Fund (TPHSSF) held a fundraiser Jan. 7 at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar to honor the memory of Nicolas Leslie, TPHS Class of 2014. Leslie, a 20-year-old Del Mar native, was murdered in the ISIS-sponsored terrorist attack in Nice, France on July 14, 2016. The much-beloved only child of Del Mar residents Paola and Conrad Leslie, Nick was in France participating in a summer study abroad program through UC Berkeley where he was set to begin his junior year in the Haas School of Business. The TPHSSF recently created the Nicolas Leslie Memorial Scholarship to further Nick’s legacy at TPHS and beyond. (Above) Nicolas Leslie's father, Conrad, recounts the life of his son.

Del Mar fair board commits $250,000 to planning for proposed concert venue BY JOE TASH The agency that runs the state-owned Del Mar Fairgrounds took the first step toward turning an underperforming satellite wagering center into a 1,900-seat concert venue, agreeing to spend $250,000 on preliminary planning for the conversion. The board of directors of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which oversees fairgrounds operations, voted unanimously to make the expenditure at

its meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 3. The vote followed a report presented at the board’s December meeting, by a team of California State University San Marcos business students, that the project - which will cost an estimated $11 million in up-front construction costs - makes financial sense. “The numbers they (the Cal State San Marcos team) presented show this does make sense for the 22nd DAA to SEE VENUE, A17

The San Dieguito Union High School District Board of Trustees has narrowed its search for a new superintendent to one candidate, Eric Dill. Dill has been serving as interim superintendent of the district since July 1, 2016 following the departure of former Eric Dill superintendent Rick Schmitt. Dill joined the district in 2001. He was promoted to associate superintendent of business services in 2010. Other positions he has held include executive director of business services and director of risk management. San Dieguito Union High School District Board President Amy Herman said, “We have been impressed with Mr. Dill’s leadership of the district since he assumed the responsibility of interim superintendent last summer and are pleased that he has agreed to fulfill this role permanently.” SEE DILL, A17

County supervisors get salary boosts BY KAREN BILLING The San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved a 12.5 percent raise for themselves at the Jan. 10 meeting, a salary increase of more than $19,000 a year. Newly-appointed board vice chair Kristin Gaspar, who represents District 3, was the sole vote against the raises. The new formula is based on the salaries of San Diego County Superior Court judges — the supervisors’ salary had been set at 80 percent of judges’ salaries. Per the approval, it will now shift to 85 percent from March SEE SUPES, A18

One Paseo groundbreaking set for Jan. 25

In the last week of 2016, grading and tree removal began on the new One Paseo mixed-use center on Del Mar Heights and El Camino Real. An official groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 25 from 11:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Speakers will be John Kilroy, CEO of Kilroy Realty Corporation, and San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer. One Paseo’s first retail and restaurant tenants are scheduled to open mid-to-late 2018 and the apartment homes and offices in early-to-mid 2019.

New San Diego County Fair website debuted BY JOE TASH A new website meant to convey the fun and excitement of attending the San Diego County Fair was officially unveiled Jan. 3 at a meeting of the board that oversees the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The state-owned fairgrounds is run by an agency, the 22nd District Agricultural Association, whose board members are appointed by the California governor. Adam Richardson, of the fairgrounds marketing department, said the new website is “high on experience, low on great walls of text.” The revamped site, at www.sdfair.com, is dominated by large photos of scenes from past fairs, and simplified to such clickable topics as participating in exhibits or performances, planning a visit, and what to see — which Richardson described as “the meat of the site.” The new website will work with a companion smart-phone app to tailor a visitor’s experience, Richardson said. For example, the app will use GPS to let visitors know where and when attractions can be found, from rides to animals to concerts. “It’s going to be a very personal experience,” Richardson said. Fair officials will also have the ability to highlight featured events, such as concerts, when they want to bolster ticket sales, Richardson said. Officials delayed the website rollout last month after local Indian groups wrote to the

The theme was a play on the phrase, “how the West was won,” which was also the title of a 1962 film. But in letters to the 22nd DAA, tribal leaders said the theme was insensitive to the murderous attacks inflicted on Indians during the 1800s. Fairgrounds officials then met with tribal leaders and agreed on a new theme: “Where the West is Fun.” The website was then updated to reflect the changed wording. The 22nd DAA said it will work with local tribal officials to include accurate Native American history in fair exhibits. The 2017 San Diego County Fair runs from June 2 through July 4.

Environmental groups, council members urge Obama to protect coast from oil spills BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN City Council members Barbara Bry (District 1) and Lorie Zapf (District 2) along with reps from a half-dozen environmental organizations, gathered at La Jolla Shores on Friday, Jan. 6 to send a message to President Barack Obama to protect the San Diego coast from the consequences of oil and gas drilling. A letter to the sitting president was sent Monday, Jan. 9 with the signatures of more than 1,000 citizens petitioning Obama to include San Diego in the 1953 Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act and permanently withdraw federal waters off the region’s coast from offshore oil and gas leasing. The effort is a continuance of Gov. Jerry Brown’s request to the President to protect the coasts of California in a similar manner. Stressing the importance of achieving the protection goals before Inauguration Day (Friday, Jan. 20) when Obama will be replaced by President-elect Donald Trump, council member Zapf said, “Mr. President, there is still time. Please, do not get on that helicopter Jan. 20 without invoking your authority to protect San Diego’s precious and beautiful coastline from any future drilling, for our children and the future generations.” Council member Bry took the podium to highlight the importance of La Jolla Shores and the San Diego coastline environmentally and economically. “Just out there is Matlahuayl State Marine Reserve (La Jolla Shores Underwater Marine Reserve), a protected underwater eco system that includes a variety of marine mammal species

I Love a Clean San Diego director Pauline Martinson, Wildcoast conservation director Zack Plopper, San Diego Coastkeeper director Matt O’Malley, District 2 City Council member Lorie Zapf, District 1 Council member Barbara Bry, San Diego Audubon Society conservation chair Jim Peugh, UCSD Ph.D. candidate and professional surfer Cliff Kapono and kelp forests,” she said, pointing to the ocean behind her. “This is just one of 11 Marine Protected Areas on the coast along San Diego County. These underwater state parks are a safe haven for the many unique species of wildlife that inhabit our coastal waters, and are enjoyed by our swimmers, divers, kayakers and surfers. Here, not only is our precious marine environment at stake, but San Diego’s economy is also greatly impacted by the health of our coastline.” Bry referred to the economic stimulus generated by tourists who chiefly come to San Diego to visit coastline landmarks and beaches, as well as the maritime industry,

which yields tax revenues originated offshore. “San Diego’s coastline is one of our most important natural assets and we need to preserve its health and beauty for future generations to enjoy,” she added. During the event, which took place at the La Jolla Shores boardwalk adjacent to the playground, representatives from I Love a Clean San Diego, San Diego Coastkeeper, Wildcoast, Surfrider Foundation and San Diego Audubon Society pledged support to the cause. San Diego Coastkeeper director Matt O’Malley spoke of the dangerous consequences that often stem from oil and

gas drilling offshore. “From Santa Barbara to the Gulf Coast, we have all seen the dangers of blind adherence to fossil fuels. Here in our backyard, we are working toward 100 percent renewable energy goals. We urge our leaders to protect the crown jewels we have behind us here in La Jolla, and the 70 miles of coastline we are using here in San Diego ... and permanently prohibit oil and gas drilling in our offshore waters.” On the same note, Wildcoast director Zack Plopper stated, “California is the world’s largest integrated network of Marine Protected Areas with over 545,000 acres of the state’s most iconic coastal sites — not only for wildlife and eco systems, but for communities around the world that fly to the California Coast to enjoy the amazing resources we have here. It would be absolutely devastating for the wildlife and our collective efforts to protect it if these efforts were undermined by a disaster like an oil spill or something related to that.” During his remarks, Jim Peugh of the San Diego Audubon Society supported the letter urging people to sign the petition. “With the temperature changes that have happened in the ocean already, and the changes in the ocean’s currents, we really don’t need to add to the pollution to make our ocean life even worse,” he said. To close the press conference, UC San Diego Ph.D. candidate and professional surfer Cliff Kapono, who hails from Hawaii, explained that oil and gas drilling offshore also affects the natural eco systems of the Islands.

Premiering at The Globe

The play’s the thing for winning young writers BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT Seven aspiring playwrights will have their work shown as part of the 32nd annual Playwrights Project Festival of Plays by Young Writers, Jan. 19-29, at The Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park. Ranging in age from 12 to 18, they are the winners of the 2016 California Young Playwrights Contest, chosen from 385 entrants in a blind judging by local theater professionals. Of the six prize-winning plays (one is a collaboration), there will be four full-scale productions and two staged readings at the Globe, which has been hosting the festival for the past 18 years. Founded in 1985, Playwrights Project (PP) offers playwriting workshops in schools, produces community readings, and reaches out to about 10,000 people every year, nurturing writers and developing theater artists and audiences. Their annual festival is a chance to see plays by promising young people whose names may be up in lights someday. The Festival’s producer is Cecelia Kouma, PP’s executive director, who first came on board in 2000 as managing director in charge of school programs and took over from founding director Deborah Salzer a decade ago. What’s her favorite thing about the festival? “Watching the young writers’ reactions when they realize that the experts are taking their work seriously,” she said. “They’re treated as professionals here, even if they’re 12 years old.” Dramaturgs help the young writers get their scripts ready for prime time, which includes

GERI GOODALE

The prize-winning playwrights, whose work can be seen at The Old Globe Theatre, Jan. 19-29, include Matthew Maceda, 17 (‘The Dumping Ground’), Cassandra Hsiao, 16 (‘Supermarket of Lost’), Katie Taylor, 18 (‘Pros and Cons’), Eliana Dunn, 16 (‘Hackathon’), Minh-Son Tran, 13, and Samantha Rafter, 14 (‘A Play on Words’) and Absinthe McDonald, 12 (‘Turtle on a Rock’). fleshing out characters and trimming longer works down to no more than 30 minutes. This year’s main man behind the scenes is artistic director Ruff Yeager, an award-winning actor/director and theater professor at Southwestern College, who will be whipping the festival’s plays into final shape. Fun Fact: This is the fifth win for 17-year-old Matthew Maceda, who co-wrote his first winner with a fellow student at Mesa Verde Middle School in 2011, in a class taught by Playwrights Project founder Deborah Salzer. He never stops writing, but recently decided, after

The Sharon Russakoff Story

Documentary on aging well features busy senior BY MARÍA JOSÉ DURÁN In her early 20s, local resident Sharon Russakoff suffered an accident that left her with a chronic disability and made daily routines increasingly harder as time passed. Now, at age 71, she will be portrayed as an example of how to age successfully in the KPBS-TV documentary “Re’flect.” Russakoff’s episode “Showing Up at Every Stage,” the first of six in the “Re’flect” series, will initially air at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12 on KPBS-TV. A related community dialogue will be held 1-3 p.m. Monday, Jan. 16 at the Jewish Community Center (JCC), 4126 Executive Drive, where the episode will be screened following a panel discussion with health-care and aging experts, including Russakoff. A patron of the arts and a philanthropist, the list of activities Russakoff is involved with is impressive. “I see myself as someone who refuses to be a victim. My family doesn’t do self-pity. There’s so much that I can still do and it’s wonderful. You can spend your life hiding or you can be out there and have a life,” she said. As an usher for the San Diego Symphony and the San Diego Opera, a singer in the Pacific Coast Chorale and a volunteer seamstress at Cygnet Theater, Russakoff fills her days supporting artistic and charitable causes. And she does all of it without driving. “I stopped driving 15 years ago because my depth perception is not reliable,” she explained, adding that was one of the consequences of her accident. Her decision not to drive was what prompted the family’s move from their previous residence in San Carlos to University City, one of the county’s public transportation hotspots that allows Russakoff to be independent. “When you have no choice, you get very

Sharon Russakoff will be featured in the first episode of the KPBS-TV documentary ‘Re’flect,’ airing Jan. 12. organized,” she laughed. When she can’t take a bus, she gets a ride from her husband or one of her sons, Mark, 42 and Jonathan, 34. She’s also a member of the La Jolla JCC, where she works out at the gym, attends music lessons and swims. “Six months ago or so, the producers of ‘Re’flect’ contacted the head of the JCC and asked for a list of active seniors to be interviewed. My husband and I were in that group, and they chose me!” “Re’flect” episodes will air in January and April. The documentary provides insight on the lives of seniors who conduct fulfilling lives. And of that, Russakoff is an example. The show’s co-producer and writer, Theresa Hoiles, said in a statement: “As we learned more about her, we realized she is unstoppable. The woman never seems to

slow down. She is always doing something. And she really becomes the go-to person for everyone she works with. She really runs the show. “We also feel her story will resonate with people who say they want to, but find reasons why they don’t get involved with things.” When asked how she finds the variety of activities she’s involved in, Russakoff replied, “I get the ideas through networking. We started in ushering because a friend became an usher captain and needed someone to be on the team. And from there, basically, it was networking.” Music has been a part of her life since her early years. At age 4, Russakoff was already singing with a choir back in Philadelphia, from where she hails. “My eldest sister was in a choir, which to audition for, you had to be 7, and my mother decided she had one kid out of the house, and she wanted the other one out, too… so she got me an audition, and I sang with them many years all through high school.” Her accident happened during an ice storm, when the public transportation vehicle she was riding in collided with an ice block, and it threw her around. “It took a year for anybody to take me seriously and take spinal X-rays. These revealed I had dislocated six vertebrae, and by then, it was too late to do anything. It changed the way I do things. There are things I can’t do, but others I can, and I choose to focus on those,” she explained. Russakoff said she moved to San Diego County in 1980, when doctors told her the harsh cold East Coast climate was contributing to the deterioration of her health so much that if she didn’t relocate, she would be in a wheelchair by age 40. ■ When to Watch: Russakoff’s episode on ‘Re’flect,’ airs 8:30-9 p.m. Jan. 16, Feb. 23 and Feb. 27 on KPBS-TV.

Since 1997, the program has awarded more than $26 million to thousands of students. “According to U.S. Census data, 35.7 percent of San Diegans 25 and older have a bachelor’s degree or higher,” explained Kathlyn Mead, president and CEO of The San Diego Foundation. “While many individuals choose to enter the workforce immediately, we want to give everyone the opportunity to pursue higher education if they so choose.

Thanks to philanthropy, we are making higher education more accessible and attainable for all San Diegans.” Using one online application, students can access more than 100 types of scholarships for the 2017- 2018 academic year, with awards generally ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.

E

ach year, talented students from the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory's most advanced level Ovation compete in solo concerto competitions. In addition to cash scholarship awards, the winners gain the opportunity to perform as featured soloists in future San Diego Youth Symphony concerts. In June of 2017, the co-winners of the Ovation Concerto Competition will perform full concertos, instead of single movements, for the first time, backed by their orchestras. Two talented and dedicated students from Torrey Pines High School, violinist Erica Hwang and flutist Christine Kim, were recognized for the top award during the Ovation Concerto Competition held in October 2016. They will both be featured soloists during the Ovation Spring concert, to be held Sunday, June 11 at the Jacobs Music Center's Copley Symphony Hall. "Performing full concertos is demanding and is usually only a requirement of college students. They require a high level of musicianship, endurance, artistry, professional-level performance ability, and extreme poise and confidence,” said Dr. Sidney Yin, associate director of conservatory

These surfers stand ready to try and break the world record for number of surfers on one wave.

COURTESY ALAN HESS

Surfers enter the water for the 2016 One Wave Challenge, which was held at the La Jolla Shores beach.

One Wave Challenge returns with attempts to break world record FROM ONE WAVE REPORTS The world-record-breaking One Wave Challenge invites surfers to share a single wave for the benefit of Boys to Men Mentoring Network, a San Diego nonprofit dedicated to guiding and supporting high-risk and fatherless boys on their journey to manhood. This year’s One Wave Challenge will attract surfers to La Jolla Shores on the morning of Saturday, Jan. 21, for the chance to smash the current world record for most surfers riding one wave, a feat accomplished seven years ago in Cape Town, South Africa, when 110 surfers rode a single wave to shore. The 2016 La Jolla attempt to break the record

got close, with 97 riders on one wave. “The One Wave Challenge gives surfers, of all ages and abilities, the chance to participate in something much larger than themselves at the start of a New Year,” said Boys to Men Executive Director Craig McClain. “We see the event generating a spirit of excitement and possibility that will inspire our work throughout the coming year.” The second event will be limited to 180 participants. Surfers will be challenged to raise a minimum of $250 to participate, with proceeds benefitting Boys to Men’s life-changing mentoring programs. Surfers will be treated to a delicious breakfast, a schwag bag

— including a commemorative T-shirt, hat and rash guard — and a beachside concert performed by local beach-rock band, Sandollar. Running enthusiasts will have the chance to participate in a new wrap-around event: The Torrey Pines Adventure Run. Starting and finishing on the beach at La Jolla Shores, the five-mile run will have runners racing to the back fence of the iconic Torrey Pines South golf course. The scenic race route will showcase the beauty of the La Jolla coastline, while exposing runners to its rugged terrain and expansive vistas. Hosted by Easy Day Sports and timed to coincide with the One Wave Challenge, the adventure run will allow runners to finish their

race and then watch the surfing spectacle unfold. The Torrey Pines Adventure Run registration fee is $60. A full-race entry refund will be given to any runner who raises $250 or more for the Boys to Men organization. Limited to 500 participants, the race features a men’s and women’s elite division, a general classification time-trial start, age-group awards and breakfast. The La Jolla Shores Business Association is planning a weekend of exciting promotions, events and activities designed to immerse community residents and visitors in the spirit of the One Wave Challenge. —Read more at 1wavechallenge.org

Five things to know about ‘Christmas miracle’ comforts parents of Nice integrative heart care TO YOUR HEALTH

H

eart disease is the leading cause of death among both men and women in the United States, taking the lives of 610,000 Americans every year. While conventional medicine can offer heart patients the very latest technology in terms of medications, surgeries and interventional procedures to treat heart attacks and other acute heart conditions, preventing those problems is often less precise and sometimes more complex. “Certainly risk factors such as family history, blood pressure, Dr. Poulina cholesterol levels and genetics are important, Uddin but often there are other, less obvious aspects involved as well,” said Poulina Uddin, M.D., an integrative cardiologist who will be seeing patients at the Scripps Women’s Heart Center when it opens in San Diego in January. Here are five things to know about integrative heart care, which focuses on caring for all aspects of a person’s health. 1. Look beyond the physical symptoms. “If someone comes in with a heart attack, I ask what happened that day. Were they angry with someone? Was there a stressful event?” Uddin said. “All of the physical risk factors are important, but why did it happen on this particular day? And the majority of the time, there is some emotional or environmental trigger.” According to Uddin, who is board certified in both cardiology and integrative medicine, an integrative approach to heart care takes all of those factors – physical, emotional, psychological and social – into consideration when determining treatment and crafting an individualized care plan for each patient that reflects and acknowledges their unique lifestyle. 2. Make nutrition and exercise realistic and achievable. Physicians often instruct heart patients to eat well, exercise and live a healthy lifestyle, but patients may not have the knowledge and tools they need to follow through on those instructions, Uddin says. A patient who is depressed, for example, is unlikely to stick to an exercise program unless the depression is addressed. Nutrition and cooking classes, for example, can help patients learn to make heart-healthy meals. Uddin recommends being very specific about dietary recommendations. “I actually ask the patients what they are eating, make a list, and then give very specific recommendations for substitutions, portions, and problem foods,” she said. “For example, replace

your white rice with brown rice or quinoa, or eat only half of what you have taken on your plate. This gives makes it much easier for people to get started in the process.” 3. Learn effective ways to manage stress. Stress and anger can be major risk factors in heart disease, and learning to deal with these negative feeling can lower risk and benefit overall wellness. “I am a big proponent of dealing with stress. I send plenty of patients to acupuncture or healing touch, a therapy that focuses on the energy field surrounding the body. And I teach breathing exercises in my office,” Uddin said. “I often recommend yoga, and I recently became a certified yoga instructor myself because I want to be able to set up classes for my patients who are apprehensive about doing it on their own. A lot of patients just need that support.” 4. Complement conventional medicine rather than replace it. Uddin noted that the integrative approach complements rather than replaces conventional heart care. For a generally healthy patient who may be slightly overweight and have high cholesterol, lifestyle changes such as improving their nutrition, exercising and managing stress may be enough to lower their risk, and having a personalized plan to follow makes that more realistic. If after six months there is no improvement, it may be time for medication – and that often raises questions about prescription versus supplements or “natural” products. 5. Use natural supplements wisely. Natural supplements such as fish oil and turmeric have a proven anti-inflammatory effect on the body and can help reduce risk, but for someone who has already had a heart attack or a stent placed in an artery, standard medications such as aspirin and statins are part of the recommended treatment. Some patients, however, may be reluctant to take prescription drugs, preferring instead to use herbs or supplements. While these alternatives may do the same thing as prescription medications, they tend to be far less regulated and tested for safety and effectiveness than prescription drugs. “Red yeast rice, for example, can be a substitute for statins, but the chemical effect on the body is essentially the same, and you’re still taking a pill that may or may not be as safety-tested as a prescription,” Uddin said. Successful integrative heart care starts with an open, honest dialogue with your physician, and creating a care plan that addresses your unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual health. “To Your Health” is brought to you by the physicians and staff of Scripps.

BY DEBORAH SULLIVAN BRENNAN Approaching the first holiday season since his son was killed in a terrorist attack in Nice, Conrad Leslie received what he called a Christmas miracle — a measure of comfort in a sea of nearly unrelenting grief. Nicolas Leslie, a 20-year-old UC Berkeley student from Del Mar, was one of 84 people killed July 14 when a Tunisian attacker drove a box truck through a promenade in the French city filled with people celebrating Bastille Day. Conrad Leslie said he and his wife, Paola, had been tormented by thoughts of their son’s body abandoned at the scene, until receiving a Facebook message in December saying that two French women had found Nicolas and stayed with his body through the night. “It was a beautiful Christmas story,” Leslie said. “It couldn’t get any better.” In the message, Leslie learned that a mother and daughter from Nice had encountered Nicolas’ body as they left the scene of the attack. “They were there on the 14th, and they came Nick Leslie across this young man’s body all alone,” Leslie said. “Something compelled them to stay there. They went home and got candles, and stayed and prayed by his side.” The message, Leslie said, helped console him and his wife and represented a milestone in their journey to make sense of their son’s death. It was sent by a woman whose mother is a neighbor of the Good Samaritans. Nick Leslie, a graduate of Torrey Pines High School, entered Berkeley to study environmental science and then switched to a business major, hoping to found a sustainable food company. He was participating in a summer entrepreneurship program in Nice, when he was struck by the truck as it barreled through the plaza. His parents initially believed he had survived the attack and arrived in France only to get the devastating news that he had been killed. Even days after the attack, the scene at the plaza was horrific, Conrad Leslie said, with blood still pooled on the ground. Months later, Leslie said he and his wife both struggled with nightmares of the night Nicolas died. “The people who died lay there all night until the next day,” he said. “That thought drove us crazy, that he lay there alone, while we thought he was (still) alive.” To deal with their grief and honor Nicolas’ memory, they worked with UC Berkeley to create a scholarship that will help other students study abroad. Conrad Leslie also began exploring spiritual writings. “I’ve been trying to find faith, to find meaning to his death,” he said. The work of Emanuel Swedenborg, a 17th Century Swedish scientist and mystic, resonated with Leslie. And Swedenborg’s illustration of two angels beside a dying person convinced him that Nicolas was not alone the night he died. Then he received the message, which he said confirmed that belief. He shared it with his wife, who was recuperating from hip surgery in the hospital. “Basically it was the proof that I needed, that these two people were the embodiment of the angels that I saw in the illustration,” he said. “It brought us so much peace, and faith in humanity.” Paola has communicated with the woman who relayed the message, and the couple plan to meet her in Nice next summer, along with the women who found their son’s body, Leslie said. The ongoing story, he said, shows how terrorist attacks alter lives far beyond the immediate victims. “That’s not just an event,” he said. “It ripples, and it ripples, and it destroys lives. But there are also ripples of goodness.” The Torrey Pines High School Scholarship Fund (TPHSSF) held a fundraiser Jan. 7 at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar to honor the memory of Nicolas. (See photos page A15.) The TPHSSF recently created the Nicolas Leslie Memorial Scholarship to further Nick’s legacy at TPHS and beyond. For more information, visit www.tphssf.org.

Fundraiser held to honor memory of Nicolas Leslie

T

he Torrey Pines High School Scholarship Fund (TPHSSF) held a fundraiser Jan. 7 at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar to honor the memory of Nicolas Leslie, TPHS Class of 2014. Leslie, a 20-year-old Del Mar native, was murdered in the ISIS-sponsored terrorist attack in Nice, France on July 14, 2016. The much-beloved only child of Del Mar residents Paola and Conrad Leslie, Nick was in France participating in a summer study abroad program through UC Berkeley where he was set to begin his junior year in the Haas School of Business. The TPHSSF recently created the Nicolas Leslie Memorial Scholarship to further Nick’s legacy at TPHS and beyond. While at Torrey, Nick excelled in his academic studies, played on the lacrosse team and pursued his passion for water sports. He founded the startup company N2 Kitesurfing to earn money for college by teaching kitesurfing. He also served as Congressional Debate co-captain for the TPHS Speech and Debate Team where he enjoyed mentoring younger students who respected him and often sought his guidance. Nick’s life reflects all that is best about the greater TPHS community – a love of the outdoors, enlightened global engagement and compassionate entrepreneurism.

www.delmartimes.net FROM VENUE, A1 re-purpose the SSRP to a 1,900-seat venue for music and entertainment,” said board member Stephen Shewmaker, who heads up a committee seeking new uses for the Surfside Race Place, as the satellite wagering center is called. The center is designed to allow patrons to bet on horse races beamed in by satellite from around the United States and even from other countries. The 22nd DAA has been struggling for years to find a new use for the satellite wagering center, a 91,000-square-foot building that was completed in 1991 at a cost of $12 million in state funds. In recent years, both attendance and revenue have plummeted; in 2010, some 108,000 people visited the center, but that number had dropped to about 62,000 in 2014. Similarly, annual revenue generated by the center dropped from $471,771 in 2010, to $128,489 in 2014. The trend has continued - a report showed that both daytime revenue and attendance declined in December 2016 compared to the same month one year earlier. 22nd DAA officials have blamed industry changes, such as the rise of Internet gambling and Indian casinos, for the declines. Among the ideas considered and rejected for “re-purposing” the satellite wagering center were a high-end movie complex, a bowling and entertainment center and a mico-brewery. Officials then began considering the idea of a concert venue. After conducting research internally, the 22nd DAA commissioned the study by the CSUSM business students. “The team’s findings revealed that there is a demand for a concert venue of 1,900 seats in San Diego that has not been met by existing competitors. By analyzing the industry and the competitors in the local area, the team was able to determine that investing in a concert venue would be profitable,” said the executive summary of the business students’ report. The students also determined that the 22nd DAA would recoup its initial

investment in about five years. The study based its financial assumptions on an average ticket price of $45, with 90 shows booked per year. It also recommended that the 22nd DAA partner with the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach to book talent for the new concert venue. As the 22nd DAA moves forward with its plans, the $250,000 appropriation will be used for such tasks as exploring financing options and completing engineering drawings. One official said full construction plans could cost as much as $800,000, but Shewmaker said the board will have to approve any costs over the initial seed money authorized Jan. 3. The district will also have to work with the California Coastal Commission to determine if the new use for the building will require an amendment to a previously obtained coastal permit. Director David Watson said an amendment may not be needed, because the size of the building will not change, and it is already permitted for up to 5,000 people per day. Current daily attendance at the satellite wagering center is far below that number. Officials said a portion of the building would be reserved for satellite wagering after the renovation. Board president Russ Penniman said the district has set aside $5 million for re-purposing the satellite wagering center, and officials will be looking at a number of options for financing the rest of the project. Officials stressed that the Jan. 3 vote was not a final go-ahead for the project. Penniman said the board will want to know more precisely how much the renovation will cost, where the money will come from and what will be required by the Coastal Commission. “Once we get answers to those questions, then there will be a board discussion on moving forward,” Penniman said. That discussion could take place within the next six months, officials said. If the district does move forward with the concert venue project, officials said they will hire a project manager to oversee the work. district, continue our traditions of excellence, and build upon the student success for which our district is known.” The board of trustees will formally consider Dill’s contract in open session at its next regular board meeting on Jan.19.

FROM SUPES, A1

called into question the need for adjustment. He said the increases will put San Diego second in compensation but the county would still be “significantly” lower than Los Angeles and over 150 county employees would still earn higher salaries than the supervisors. The formula establishing the supervisors’ salaries has not been adjusted since 1998, according to Roberts, and salaries have been increased a total of 7.17 percent over the nine years since 2008.

The fiscal impact of the increases would be $17,688 for the remainder of 2016-17 and additional costs of $88,438 for 2017-18. In making her vote against the salaries, Gaspar explained that for many years, both in the public and private sectors, she has been responsible for overseeing and implementing employee compensation packages. “This is a duty I take very seriously because as I know, there are always competing priorities for our precious resources,” Gaspar said. The question she said she always asks herself when reviewing employee compensation for her own company or as an elected official is whether the compensation is appropriate for the work performed. “Awkwardly I sit here having been sworn in just 24 hours ago and I can be the first to admit that I don’t know how to get past that first fundamental question, so I won’t be supporting the motion on the floor today,” Gaspar said. Gaspar’s predecessor, former District 3 Supervisor Dave Roberts, also voted against the salary increase at December’s first reading before he left office. Some in the audience began to yell as the supervisors prepared to vote, one woman shouting “shame on you!” Board chair Dianne Jacob had to quiet the audience before they could continue, stating that even though there may be disagreements there should always be respect and that outbursts and “unfortunate personal attacks” aren’t helpful. “Let’s continue to work together as a community,” Jacob said. “I think you’ll find this board in the past and in the future willing to work with all San Diego citizens in trying to address the priorities.” During public comment of 25 speakers in opposition, many argued that taking money away from people who are suffering is not fair or reasonable. Members of the Invest in San Diego Families Coalition and Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACE) spoke about how the salary increases seem wrong in light of how many in the community are struggling. They referenced a recent report showed that the percentage of people homeless in San Diego County is higher than it was during the great recession

eight years ago, there is a housing crisis and San Diego has the fourth highest homeless population in the nation. “The county needs to address affordable housing, it is out of reach for many. We ask you to make the same investment in the county’s families and safety-net services as you are making in yourselves,” said Lileana Robles. Deanna Myers asked the supervisors to consider walking a mile in her shoes — she has worked for the county for 30 years and as an office assistant she tops out at $17.49 an hour. “You live on that salary,” she challenged, noting that the average housing in San Diego is now $1,800 a month. “County employees would love to have a 12.5 percent raise. If you can do it for yourself you darn well better come with it for San Diego County employees…There’s so many things we need, we don’t need to spend $90,000 a year on your retirement when we, as a community, are suffering.” Rancho Penasquitos resident Isabella Firth asked the board members to “check their priorities” after watching last summer when the board was asked to spend reserves investing in needs like homelessness, foster care, mental health services and criminal justice and did not. “And yet you’re able to grant yourselves an annual increase that is more than many families have to live on. That failure to invest in San Diego families diminishes us as a county,” Firth said. “And your willingness to vote to increase your own comfort adds insult to that injury. You can say that in a budget as big as San Diego’s this is just a drop in the bucket. But these acts tell us where your priorities are and who you serve.” Jacob said the board listened very carefully to the many “compelling” arguments people made. She said when the supervisors get to the budget for next year, she thinks the board will adjust priorities appropriately and have adequate public hearings. “They’re tough decisions to make but we do our best to carefully allocate the resources that we have control over,” Jacob said. “Let’s all work together and not create divisiveness in our community because, in the end, that’s not going to help us come to good decisions.”

17-Dec. 7 and to 90 percent afterward. The regular supervisor salary will increase from $153,289 to $162,870 and then increase to $172,450. “The adjustment before us today is fair and it’s reasonable,” said Supervisor Ron Roberts. Roberts said San Diego is the second largest county in California but its supervisors aren’t compensated as such — seeing counties such as San Bernadino with higher compensation

‘Marjorie Prime’ explores aging in the techno age

La Jolla Cultural Partners

FROM NCRT REPORTS North Coast Repertory Theatre continues its Season 35 with the San Diego premiere of “Marjorie Prime,” a finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, written by Jordan Harrison and directed by Matthew Wiener. The New York Times called the play “an elegant, thoughtful, quietly unsettling drama.” “Marjorie Prime,” focuses on artificial intelligence that in the near future will treat dementia and depression in a surprising way. “Primes” — humanoid life-like robots — will be able to speak with patients in the form of lost loved ones and provide companionship for the lonely. The script has been adapted into a film that will debut at the Sundance Festival this year, starring Jon Hamm, Tim Robbins, Geena Davis and Lois Smith. Noted actress Dee Maaske said she is excited to portray Marjorie Prime in the NCRT production. Once a classical violinist, Maaske’s theatrical résumé spans performance halls in the United States, Europe and the Middle East. She has had more than 50 roles in 21 seasons at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. In 2004, she was asked by Horton Foote to play Carrie Watts for his 50th anniversary production of “The Trip to Bountiful” at Hartford Stage Company and the Alley Theatre in Houston. “Artistic director David Ellenstein called me about doing ‘Marjorie Prime’ at the North Coast Rep,” she explained. “I worked with his father, Robert Ellenstein, at the

young. It’s nice to reconnect with David, as well as to do this play with new cast members to work with.

“The script and its content are interesting ... particularly now that there’s a lot of attention being paid to changing our lifestyles,” Maaske said. “We see inventions all over the country now with virtual, mechanical and new scientific things that will help our lives — some, people would never have dreamed of! Though this idea is a little creepy, to me it’s a ‘What if?’ What if someone near you passes away and you could provide another person in their life with 10 more years to be there for them! “This is a play that deals with character studies and it has interesting characters, I think that’s why it won a nomination for a Pulitzer,” Maaske said. “All three of the actors in this production are great to work with. Elaine Rivkin plays my daughter, who has moved me (at age 85) to her West Coast home, which she shares with her husband. She and I have twists and turns that are interesting. I think many of the audience members will find this thought-provoking and initiate some stimulating conversations after they leave the theater. “Sometimes people tend to forget that older people have sensuous thoughts — they like a good drink, joke, conversation — and the more we do such with them, the better off they are.” The cast also includes Steve Froelich and Gregory North.

Dolce at Pacific Highlands to host CCA Foundation’s Rendezvous in Paris Gala VIP After-Party and January Restaurant Nights

If you’ve tried to enter the new Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch shopping center weekdays at 3 p.m., you have no doubt witnessed the sea of teens descending upon the stores. Not only is it their place to socialize, it has become an extension of their school. With Canyon Crest Academy right across the street, these young adults have an easy stroll into the mall to fulfill their afternoon craving for a latte, an ice cream sandwich or sushi. Many CCA students have expressed that the plaza is as much a part of their everyday life as is the school itself. It’s no surprise some of the establishments recognize CCA families as a vital piece to their success. With Rendezvous in Paris, Canyon Crest Academy Foundation’s Annual Gala on Feb. 25, a few of the center’s shops and restaurants have generously donated auction items. And one establishment in particular has partnered with the CCA Foundation to make sure CCA’s premier event is a huge success! Dolce at the Highlands has very generously agreed to donate the VIP After-Party, featuring a meet and greet with Tony-nominated performer Susan Egan immediately following the dinner and show on the Canyon Crest Academy campus. In speaking with Steve Flowers, manager at Dolce, he shared, “It’s important for us at Dolce to be part of the gala.

How close is La Vida Del Mar? You can almost reach it in two. Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But La Vida Del Mar Retirement Community is still tantalizingly close to Lomas Santa Fe Country Club. It’s just 5,104 yards away—a dogleg northeast, if you will. It truly is a great location to live for golfers and non-golfers alike. In fact, most folks can’t help but feel a bit inspired when surrounded by the beauty of Solana Beach. And La Vida Del Mar itself? With its spectacular views and amenities straight out of a resort you can bet your 5-iron it’ll feel like home. And assisted living services are always available if needed. We invite you to see for yourself at a complimentary lunch and tour. (It’ll be a great walk unspoiled.)

Carmel Del Mar kindergarten students at the Winterfest.

COURTESY

Carmel Del Mar’s Winterfest impresses the critic Every year, for the last 20 years, Carmel Del Mar Elementary School’s music teacher, Cinda Peck, produces Winterfest – a concert spanning two evenings when all students (from kindergarten through sixth grade) sing songs of the season to their families in the audience. Even if you are not a trained professional musician, it’s easy to appreciate the work it takes Peck and the students to put on the event. At this year’s Winterfest (on Dec. 17 and 18, 2016), however, there happened to be a trained professional musician in the audience so he was asked to share his perspective through a review. Curtis “Rusty” Barker (grandfather of two Carmel Del Mar students) is a retired professional lead trumpet player who toured the world with Maynard Ferguson and the Ice Follies, and also played on Broadway. His wife and daughter describe him as a musical snob who is not impressed by 99.9 percent of what we generally refer to as “music.” Barker’s review of Winterfest follows: “It was a pleasure to attend this year’s production of Winterfest. The polished performances made clear that Mrs. Peck and the students put in many hours of dedicated, enthusiastic work. The smiles on the faces in the audience were a tribute to how well the children worked together in executing the rather intricate choreography and round robins of the arrangements. It was wonderful to hear the full breadth of dynamics as a focused, disciplined response

CDM music teacher Cinda Peck to Mrs. Peck’s subtle urgings. Even accuracy of intonation belied the average age of the choirs. Bravo Mrs. Peck! Bravo CDM! Bravo STEAM+!” STEAM+ refers to the Del Mar Union School District’s integrated approach to learning that emphasizes science, technology, engineering, the arts, math and PE instruction. At CDM and the seven other elementary schools in the district, donations to the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) help fund music specialists like Peck (as well as teachers specializing in art, technology, science and PE). “It is wonderful to be a part of a community that values the arts and their critical role in primary education” said Ruby Evans, CDM parent and DMSEF director.

‘Toys for Tots’ 2016 campaign a success at drop-off station in Del Mar For its 18th holiday season, Jim Coleman and his staff at Your State Farm Insurance Agency in downtown Del Mar were an official drop-off station for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s “Toys for Tots” campaign. “We had another terrific year with over four boxes of toys collected,” said Coleman, who added that he is grateful to all who supported the campaign again this year.

The Del Mar Foundation (DMF) will present Dr. Erica Ollmann Saphire, from The Scripps Research Institute, as the next DMF Talks speaker Monday, Jan. 23, 6 p.m., at the Powerhouse Community Center. Join Ollmann Saphire as she speaks on “Fighting Global Viruses: Ebola and Lassa.” Ollmann Saphire’s research focuses on the “Structural Studies of Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Pathogenesis” (viruses with compact genomes of only 4-7 genes). Consequently, each protein is critical, many are obligated to perform multiple functions, and some actually rearrange their structures to achieve those new functions. As a result, these few polypeptides accomplish a surprisingly complex set of biological functions: immune evasion, receptor recognition, cell entry, transcription, translation, assembly and exit. The event is free. Online reservations are required and may be made at www.delmarfoundation.org/events. Seating is limited. DMF Talks, the Del Mar Foundation’s unique version of TED Talks, draws its speakers from locally-based creative, intellectual and scientific leaders. Launched in 2012, DMF Talks aims to entertain, inspire, and educate the Del Mar community through a series of free presentations.

Local poet Patricia Dugger to read works at event BY BRITTANY WOOLSEY ot long after losing her husband in 1998, Patricia Dugger found a new calling in life — poetry. Just prior to his death, her husband would drive his wife to late-night poetry meetings with the Carlsbad City Library Magee Park Poets. Shortly after, Dugger was published for the first time and her husband got to see the work before he died. “I found [poetry] as sort of a new focus in my life,” Dugger, 87, said. “It’s like my husband introduced me to my new life.” The longtime Cardiff-by-the-Sea woman has since joined multiple local poetry clubs — including being one of the first members of the Full Moon poetry group, which will hold a reading Jan. 14 with Dugger and three other local poets. Dugger, who was named Encinitas’ poet laureate in

N

2005, said she enjoys reading poetry often, but she doesn’t write her own poetry every Patricia day. Dugger But when inspiration hits, she’s hard to stop, said the author of three poetry books. “I write about everything,” she said, adding that she’ll look for prompts by hearing or seeing something interesting that might be included in a poem. Cardiff, where Dugger settled with her family in 1952, has inspired her because of how long she has lived in her home and how close she is to the ocean, she said. When asked whether her writing tended to be fiction or non-fiction, Dugger, who is influenced by poets like Tony Hoagland and Ted Kooser, said she believes “fiction

doesn’t relate to poetry.” “Once, my granddaughter asked me, ‘Nana, is this true? Did this really happen?’” she said. “I told her, ‘Honey, it’s somebody’s truth.’ I do make up stuff. Once in a great while, I’ve had maybe five poems that have been gifts that sort of just slid out of my mind.” The most important criteria of a successful poem is that it evokes emotion, she said. For Saturday’s reading, Dugger said each poet will have about 20 minutes to read their work. Patrick Brady, Darius Degher and Jim Babwe will also read. Dugger expects to read about a dozen poems and offer background information for each one, which is something she said she has never done before. The free event, presented by 101 Artists Colony and taking place at 540 Cornish Drive, will begin at 6 p.m., with seating starting at 5:30 p.m.

Tiger Woods commits to 2017 Farmers Insurance Open Tiger Woods, a seven-time winner of the Farmers Insurance Open, has committed to play in the 2017 tournament, the Century Club announced recently. Woods will join a stellar field that includes Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson, Brandt Snedeker and more. Woods will play for the first time in 2017 at the Jan. 26-29 PGA Tour event at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla. He won the Farmers Insurance Open in 1999, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2013, and earned his last major championship victory in a 19-hole playoff at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in 2008. The return of the 79-time PGA Tour winner and 14-time major championship winner will mark his first start in a full-field PGA Tour event since August 2015. In early December, he returned from a 15-month injury layoff in the 18-player Hero World Challenge. In addition to his seven victories at the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods has finished in the top 10 six other times in 15 appearances. He is the tournament’s all-time leading money winner, with $6,856,015. “We’re thrilled our fans will have the opportunity to see Tiger in addition to what is already a very strong field for the Farmers Insurance Open,” said Century Club CEO Peter Ripa. “He has experienced tremendous success at Torrey Pines and in our tournament, and we couldn’t think of a better place for him to start the year. Tiger’s presence will add to a deep and talented field that includes many of the top stars in the game as well as some exciting up-and-coming players.” Tickets for the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open are now on sale and can be purchased online at www.FarmersInsuranceOpen.com.

Mitchell Thorp Foundation (“MTF”) has been helping these children and families with financial, emotional and resource support to their desperate situations. “Not many organizations can claim more than 90 percent of all funds raised go directly to the programs to assist the families and children,” noted MTF Co-Founder and CEO, Brad Thorp. “We are proud that we can.” MTF will hold its largest fundraiser of the year, the eighth annual 5K Run/Walk, on Feb. 4 at Poinsettia Park in Carlsbad. This year, the event will be themed around these Warrior Children who fight every day for their lives. “Bring Out The Warrior Within to Help a Warrior Child” will set the stage for the 5K, which will feature a chip-timed race for runners and a beautiful park loop for walkers. In addition, a kids’ obstacle course with great prizes, warrior trophy awarded to largest team, music, and food will set the stage for a great day for the entire family. The funds raised from the event will benefit the families in these grave situations. “There are so many hurdles faced by these families and we are honored to be able to help them,” said MTF Co-Founder and Executive Director Beth Thorp.

Red Cross issues an emergency call for blood and platelet donations during severe winter blood shortage The American Red Cross has a severe winter blood shortage and is issuing an emergency call for blood and platelet donors to make a donation appointment now and help save patient lives. Hectic holiday schedules for many regular blood donors contributed to about 37,000 fewer donations in November and December than what was needed. Snowstorms and severe weather have also impacted donations. Nearly 100 blood drives were forced to cancel in December, resulting in more than 3,100 blood donations going uncollected. “Blood and platelet donations are critically needed in the coming days so that patients can continue to receive the lifesaving treatments they are counting on,” said Jay Winkenbach, Donor Recruitment director of the local Red Cross Blood Services Region. “We encourage donors to invite a family member or friend to donate with them to help meet patient needs. Right now, blood and platelet donations are being distributed to hospitals faster than they are coming in.” Find a blood donation opportunity and schedule an appointment to donate by using the free Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). The Red Cross is extending hours at many donation sites for more donors to give blood or platelets.

Going Nuts Over Seeds — Part 2

W

hen I was growing up, chia pets were all the rage. As a gag for my Sweet 16 birthday, one of my friends gave me a kitschy chia dog that magically grew a luxurious “fur” coat after I placed hundreds of tiny chia seeds on the canine’s bare body, and watered them religiously for several days. Today I still embrace those precious chia seeds, but now I sprinkle them on everything from acai bowls, smoothies and hot cereals to green salads, pastas, and stir fries, along with blending them in pancakes, scones, muffins and quick breads to dial up flavor, texture and add a nutritional oomph. The chia plant or chia sage botanically known as Salvia hispanica, a native of the Mexican central valley, and staple of the Aztec and Mayan diets for thousands of years, has ironically transformed into a trendy new superfood of the Western world. The petite, elliptically-shaped black seed has Herculean powers, especially being hydrophilic. Having the ability to absorb more than 10 times its weight in water makes this potent oilseed both hydrating for athletes and healthful for diabetics as it puts the skids on the rate at which carbs are converted into sugars. Soaked in almond, soy or coconut milk for an hour, the wondrous seeds form a gelatinous

■ Ingredients (Serves 4): • 1 cup buckwheat (kasha), whole or coarse • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 1 sweet onion, diced • 1 cup mushrooms (crimini, button, oyster, your choice), sliced • 1 large egg, beaten • 2 cups broth (chicken, vegetable or mushroom)

mixture that makes a refreshing fresca or indulgent pudding. There’s more. Having a rich store of vitamins, minerals, proteins, dietary fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids, this translates to multiple benefits for mind, body and soul. Feeling sluggish and logy? Chia seeds boost energy and enhance your work-out regimen. Have brittle bones and chalky teeth? Chia seeds are a calcium powerhouse beating out milk by a long shot. Your ticker need tweaking? Chias reduce inflammation, bad cholesterol and blood pressure levels to keep the heart and constitution humming. Want to shed some holiday pounds? These

slimming seeds regulate digestion and slow down food absorption. As an added boon, they’re gluten-free with a heap of antioxidants to ward off harmful and aging free radicals. At last, the high fatty acid profile lubricates brain cells to keep you sharp and alert. Hearty and stable, chias have a long shelf life, unlike flax seeds that turn rancid quickly if not stored in a cool, dark place. Another seed-related flashback to my youth relates to buckwheat, which my grandmother sautéed with onions and mushrooms, and tossed with little bow tie pastas (recipe provided) as a side dish for chicken, brisket or fish. The kernels would perfume her kitchen with a distinct earthiness, so strong it would trail out the door. Once considered an ethnic dish popularly served at delis and other Jewish eateries, buckwheat is making a culinary conversion, becoming part of the mainstream repertoire of chefs coast to coast. Of ancient Central Asian origins, buckwheat is a misnomer, since it is neither a wheat, grass

• 1 cup (cooked, drained) whole-wheat bow tie pasta (farfalle) ■ Method: Heat oil on medium in a covered saucepan and sauté onions and mushrooms until tender. In a mixing bowl, blend kasha, egg and seasoning. Add to saucepan. Cook on medium until groats separate. Add broth. Bring to a boil, then simmer, covering pot until liquid is absorbed (about 10 minutes). Toss in pasta. Garnish with chopped parsley.

nor cereal grain, though its chewy texture rife with complex carbs earned it the moniker “pseudo-cereal.” A member of the rhubarb and sorrel family, buckwheat is a pyramid-shaped seed coated with a black hull. When the latter is removed, the kernel or groat is exposed, which can be ground into buckwheat flour to impart a nutty flavor to pancakes, breads or Japanese soba noodles. When prepared toasted and whole, the seed is commonly called “kasha,” enjoyed as a sweet breakfast cereal, tossed in salads to add a protein load for a complete meal, molded into toothsome vegetable burgers, or used as a filling for cabbage rolls or a rice substitute. Buckwheat contains a motherlode of gluten-free, anti-inflammatory nutrients, including vitamins B1 and B2 for metabolic functions and stress relief, iron and copper to pump up blood health, magnesium for normal muscle, nerve and bone function, and trace minerals, such as, phosphorous, zinc, and selenium to store energy and boost the immune system.

The Hazards of Binge Exercising after the Holidays January is filled with people resolving to live a healthier, more active lifestyle. In fact, many gyms make most of their money between January and February on new memberships (and often see a 40%-80% drop in attendance by March). Frequently, though, people are so preoccupied with numbers and sizes—dropping those 5-15 holiday pounds, for example—that they only focus on short-term results for what really should be a long-term solution. The truth is that fitness is a lifestyle and not something that should be a binge activity. Why? Binge exercising can actually be harmful

to your vein and heart health. Other hazards of binge exercising are an increased chance of sustaining injury, especially when coming off a stretch of inactivity. Does this sound familiar? You resolve to get in shape, so you join a fitness boot camp. They have a plan that gives you some kind of rebate if you lose a certain amount of weight in the first week. You are pushed to binge exercise (and binge diet). The problem? Sudden bursts of extended (binge) exercising are hard on your muscles, which haven’t been trained slowly to be in shape. The same problem is true for people who set a goal to run a marathon for the first time. You don’t become a marathon runner to get in shape; you have to train slowly, over a period of time, to build up to becoming a marathon runner. You can’t binge exercise over a few months to get in shape and be healthy. Binge exercising is like overdosing on exercise. A lot of scientific research has been conducted on the effects of binge exercising on health because of the recent trends in boot camps and marathon and triathlon

participation. For most people, workouts should be low impact and should not last for more than 45 minutes at a time in order to be the most effective with the fewest health hazards. Cardiovascular activity improves the oxygenation in your blood, your body’s ability to detoxify, your endorphin levels, and can boost your immune system, all while getting your heart to pump more efficiently through your cardiovascular system. However, binge exercising—heavy activity sustained for considerably more than 45 minutes, not only decreases the rates of these benefits but can actually do harm to your body. For one thing, binge exercising can cause your body to break down your tissues, also known as going into a catabolic state. Your immune system may be weakened, in part because of the release of excessive cortisol, which in some cases can lead to chronic disease. Sustained binge exercising can lead to microscopic tears in your muscles, which won’t heal if binge exercising continues. And working out too late in the day and for too long can lead to insomnia.

But the greatest potential threat of binge exercising is the effect it can have on your heart’s health. Remember, the heart is a muscle as well as the center of your vascular system. Overtraining for activities such as marathons or triathlons can put the heart under extremely high stress. Endurance runners experience greater scarring on the heart tissue (this is especially acute for middle-aged men). Part of the reason for this is that extensive cardiovascular exercise causes high oxidative stress, as well as inflammation—and all of these can potentially trigger cardiac arrest. Recent extensive research even shows notably higher instances in endurance runners of calcified plaque in their arteries, as well as more detectable scar tissue on their heart muscles and decreased right ventricular systolic function.
