Del Mar City Planners make recommendations on affordable housing ■ Former TPHS soccer player now an MVP at Dartmouth. Page 22

BY CLAIRE HARLIN The Del Mar Planning Commission signed off on a number of suggestions Jan. 2 to send to the City Council regarding affordable housing, which came to the table after weeks of collaboration among residents and local entities, such as the city’s Housing Element Advisory Committee, Housing

Corporation and nonprofit Del Mar Community Connections. These modifications to the draft housing element of the city’s general plan, if approved on Jan. 14 by the City Council, will head to the California Department of Housing and Development (HCD) for preliminary approval. As part of a statemandated update, the ex-

tensive document will identify the city’s housing conditions, needs, programs and goals through year 2020. However, the city is hung up on a particular hurdle — showing the state it can accommodate 71 new housing units, 22 of which need to be affordable enough to serve those in the lowest inSee HOUSING, page 6

BY JOE TASH A Del Mar woman’s grass-roots bid to end future gun shows at the Del Mar Fairgrounds prompted hundreds to sign an online petition, but appeared to miss hitting a bullseye with the appointed board that oversees the state-owned fairgrounds. Rosanne Holliday generated enthusiasm and media attention when she posted a sign in her front yard urging an end to gun shows at the fairgrounds, following last month’s deadly rampage by a lone gunman at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. At Tuesday’s (Jan. 8) meeting of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, Holliday and several other Del Mar residents asked the board not to approve any future contracts to hold gun shows at the fairgrounds. However, speakers in favor of the gun show ban were outnumbered about 2-1 by speakers in favor of continuing the shows. And following the comments by member of the public, the board showed little inclination to put a stop to the gun shows. Board president Adam Day said any board member can request consideration of a gun show ban on an upcoming board agenda, but so far he has received no such requests from fellow board members. Day said he does not intend to bring the matter forward for discussion, so the 22nd DAA See FAIRGROUNDS, page 6

Del Mar residents want to ban gun show BY CLAIRE HARLIN The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut took place on a Friday, and like many around the world, longtime Del Mar resident Roseanne Holliday spent the following Saturday and Sunday reading about the tragedy and trying to make sense of it. “I was so overcome. I said, ‘I have to do something,’” said Holliday, who

took matters into her own hands by bringing attention to the Crossroads of the West Gunshow, one of the largest firearm retail events on the West Coast, which has taken place four times a year at the Del Mar Fairgrounds for the past 22 years. The next show is set to take place on March 9 and 10. See BAN, page 19

Roberts became the only Democrat on the board when he took the oath of office before an overflow audience at the County Operations Center. Roberts defeated Steve Danon, chief of staff to ex-Rep. Brian Bilbray, in a November runoff. Neither received more than 50 percent of the vote in the June primary election.


“Today, we turn the page to a new chapter in the 162year history book of San Diego County,’’ Roberts said. “I’m the first new supervisor in 18 years — the first member of that next generation of leaders on our county Board of Supervisors — and I know I’m joining a great team of people, one that has turned the county around.’’ See ROBERTS, Page 16

Harvest Ranch closes at Del Mar Plaza BY CLAIRE HARLIN Those who attended wine tastings and special events at the Harvest Ranch Market —which abruptly closed Dec. 31 after serving Del Mar for 25 years — can continue attending those events at La Jolla’s Jonathan’s Market, a specialty grocer of the same company. Al Bercuson, the director of Jonathan’s, said the owners did not renew the lease at the Del Mar Plaza, located at 1555 Camino Del Mar, and he was not authorized to comment on why. He said he would be updating the website,, later this week with more information. In the meantime, store employees are cleaning up the 12,000-square-foot Del Mar site, a large task that includes moving all the wine to the La Jolla location. “The good news is that 90 percent of the people who worked at Harvest Ranch got moved to other stores,” Bercuson said. Harvest Ranch was known for its extensive wine selection, as well as its rare and imported meats, cheeses and snacks.

Carmel Valley Farmers Market closes The Thursday afternoon Carmel Valley Farmers Market at Canyon Crest Academy has closed for good, due to “not enough support from the community,” according to the market’s Facebook page on Jan. 3. The market opened in May and benefitted the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation.

Wells Fargo Immigration reform forum to Bank be held in Solana Beach Jan. 20 robbed in Carmel Valley A Wells Fargo Bank in Carmel Valley was robbed Jan. 3 around 3:33 p.m. at 3445 Del Mar Heights Road. The male suspect walked up to several tellers and demanded cash. The suspect fled the bank with an unknown amount of cash. The suspect was seen running toward an apartment complex. The suspect was described as a white male, 5’9” to 6’ 0”, who was wearing a white baseball cap, a dark shirt with a print on the front, blue jeans, and black Vans shoes. The suspect has sleeve tattoos on his arms. No one was injured. The San Diego Police Department Robbery Unit is investigating the crime.

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito is undertaking a social justice project relating to immigration reform. As part of the program the Fellowship is sponsoring a forum on Jan. 20 at 11:30 a.m. at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of San Dieguito, 1036 Solana Drive, Solana Beach. The event guest speaker is Enrique Morones, executive director of Border Angels. Topic: “Border Angels — Border Realities — Immigration Today” The event is free to the public. As part of the project, an exhibit will be displayed of immigration art at the Fellowship. Whether you believe in

immigration reform or not, Mexicans are dying by the thousands trying to cross the U.S. border in the southwest, seeking a better way of life. Enrique Morones is the founder and executive director of the San Diego nonprofit Border Angels. The all-volunteer group places water in the desert in places where immigrants are likely to try to cross. Border Angels provides free legal advice for immigrants facing deportation and runs community awareness and education programs. Morones has met with President Barack Obama, appeared on CNN and debated Maricopa (Az.) County Sheriff Joe Arpaio; he also has led several cross-country marches, including one this past summer, to dramatize the need for comprehensive federal immigration reform. Morones is the author of “The Power of One, The Story of the Border Angels.” Morones will receive The Standing on the Side of Love campaign’s Courageous Love Award from the UUFSD on Jan. 20.

Spine specialist helps people in need through foundation love of sports — particularly soccer and tennis which he played competitively into college — and his interest in orthopedics came together in his focus on the spine. Spine surgery “is very structured and an artistic field,” he said, adding that he particularly enjoys it because it is a “huge, evolving field.” As he progressed through his 16 years in practice, he said he noticed “something is not right” with the fact that in the U.S. back surgery is performed at more than three times the rates of Great Britain. He’s also studied medical practices in Scandinavia and has seen a “system that is empowering patients.” Concluding that there’s got to be a better way, the Spine Institute’s goal, according to its website, is “to maximize function through muscle preservation and strengthening” through a fitness program targeting spinal muscles. It adds: “If surgery is required, we employ the latest endoscopic minimally invasive techniques to preserve muscle function. We

Dr. Kamshad Raiszadeh also specialize in disc replacement and joint preservation surgeries.” Raiszadeh, who also serves as medical director of the Advanced Spine Institute Minimally Invasive Spine Center at Alvarado Hospital, said he has also learned much about gaps in the healthcare system and has seen the “massive impact” paralysis can have on families. That knowledge has taught him the value of giving back, he said. Eight years ago he founded SHaRE, the Spine Humanitarian and Research Education foundation.

“I thought, ‘Why not help through a charitable organization and get others to help,’” he said. Through the nonprofit he has provided care for “undocumented workers who had no way of getting help,” others who have had their workers’ compensation claims denied, and single moms. He has also provided funds to support biomedical research into disc and nuclear replacement alternatives for disc degeneration being conducted at the University of Toledo. His efforts have international ties, too. He re-

ceived a call from a woman whose husband worked at the U.S. consulate in Brunei, describing her daughter’s severe scoliosis and heart deformities. “It was so severe it would have destroyed her life,” he said, acknowledging that Jaska’s case was “above my head. I needed a lot of help.” Part of it came from specialists at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles who performed the heart surgery; Raiszadeh and his associates handled the spine operation. “We had tremendous success,” he said. Five years later she was the valedictorian of her eighth-grade class. “Without the surgery, it would have been a completely wasted life,” he added. In late December, his wife, Shirin – a former New York City assistant district attorney who he met while doing a fellowship at the Hospital for Joint Disease in New York — and daughter Sophie, a Solana Santa Fe Elementary School sixth grader, pitched in with a

holiday event that raised money for SHaRE. They hosted a shopping get-together for friends at C. Wonder in Fashion Valley, with the shop donating 10 percent of the proceeds to the charity. Some people passing by the store also found out about the event and just donated, he said. Sophie, at 11, is the oldest of the couple’s four children; they have another daughter and two sons, with the youngest a 3-yearold. Sophie and her older brother both share their dad’s love of tennis and play competitively. Soccer is also a big part of their lives. Raiszadeh said that he tries to teach his children not to be self-absorbed. And while he’s proud of his charitable efforts, he is shy about boasting about them. It should always be about helping people who are less fortunate, he said. For more information, visit or sdspineinstitute. com

BY KATHY DAY Growing up in the shadows of a physician and a chemist, Kamshad Raiszadeh and his two brothers helped out a lot in the family’s clinical lab. Today all three are surgeons, with Kamshad and Ramin both spine specialists at the San Diego Spine Institute. The youngest, Kian, is a sports medicine specialist at Kaiser. “I always knew I was meant to be a physician,” Kamshad Raiszadeh said in a recent interview. Born in Iraq, he grew up primarily in the Modesto area where his mother, a pathologist, was clinical director of the lab, and their dad, a Ph.D. chemist, was the businessman who ran the lab. He taught at Arizona State University before they moved to Northern California where they opened the lab. Raiszadeh stayed around that area for college, graduating from UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco School of Medicine, before heading off to UC Davis for his orthopedic residency.

Record-breaking singer and longtime local resident Patti Page dies Editor’s note: This article contains quotations from a Solana Beach Sun article written by Diane Y. Welch who interviewed Patti Page in 2005.

BY DIANE Y. WELCH On New Year’s Day the world of music lost an icon when Patti Page, whose 1950s hits include “(How Much is That) Doggie in the Window?” and “Tennessee Waltz,” died of heart failure. She was 85 years old and was looking forward to next month’s GRAMMY celebrations when she was to be honored with a lifetime achievement award. “Just last week we were discussing the transportation and what outfit she should wear,” said Michael Glynn, her Massachusettsbased manager. “She was just beaming, she really wanted to be a part of it.” Known as “The Singing Rage,” because of her smooth vocal style that had universal appeal, Page said, “Retirement isn’t in my vocabulary,” when interviewed in 2005 by the Solana Beach Sun, as her career approached its seventh decade. Page had lived in Rancho Santa Fe for 30 years before she moved to Solana Beach, 12 years ago. She died at the Seacrest Village nursing home in Encinitas. Born in Claremore, Oklahoma, on Nov. 8, 1927, Page’s roots in entertainment started in a nearby church in Tulsa. “I sang alongside two of my sisters, Ruby and Rema. They called me a little ham,” recalled Page who changed her name from Clara Ann Fowler when she left home at the age of 18 to begin her career. Growing up during the Great Depression she was the next to the youngest in a family with 11 children. “We were poor but we

had no shortage of love,” she said. An unparalleled record-breaking artist, she has sold more than a 100 million records, has earned 15 gold records, has charted 111 hits, recorded one hit that exclusively sold 20 million copies –“Tennessee Waltz”– and was the first artist to use over-dubbing techniques in the studio, allowing her to sing both lead and accompanying harmonies. During her career she performed for five U.S. Presidents, an accomplishment that Page regards as her dearest, and had an impromptu jazz session with the King of Thailand, who played his clarinet whilst Page sang. “He also told me that he learned English while watching my shows on TV,” said Page. In the 1950s she was featured on “Person To Person,” a television show hosted by legendary interviewee Edward R. Murrow, an accolade that was shared with presidents

Vintage Patti Page and royalty. She also appeared as a guest star on the game show, “What’s My Line,” and starred in her own variety shows, which included a twice weekly NBC show, “Oldsmobile presents Patti Page” ; CBS’s “The Big Record”; and ABC’s “The Patti Page Show.” Another record breaker that has not been matched: Page is the only performer to have had shows bearing her name on all three major networks.

January 10, 2013 approved doing away with the idea of rezoning in the central commercial (downtown) zone to allow 20 units per acre, but it added the consideration of public facility zones back into the discussion. When it comes to the city’s condominium conversion program, the commission approved changing the affordable unit set-aside program from a 10- to 30-percent figure — meaning if a complex owner converts units, 30 percent must be affordable. However, commissioner Lani Curtis pointed out that there should be some flexibility with that

number, considering that it is not possible to anticipate future property values and whether that incentive to convert units will be financially feasible or profitable in the future. The commission also improved a yearly cap on the number of condos converted, and it can later be determined as an amendment whether that means per city, per building or per zone, Birnbaum said. The commission retained the consideration of the north commercial (NC) zone, which the Housing Corporation has suggested presents much opportunity for the city. Don Country-

man, of the Housing Corporation, said he would like to see one or more of the 17 parcels there to be zoned at 20 units per acre for housing. It’s also an area in which retail development would be a good for the city, he said, especially since the area is a short walk to the San Dieguito Lagoon. Barbara Stegman, a resident on the Housing Element Update Advisory Committee, said there’s still a big need for public input on affordable housing. “We didn’t really have time to discuss the ramifications,� she said. “As each of these things come up, like

company which has held gun shows on the property for 22 years. The current contract runs for three more years, officials said. Those in favor of prohibiting gun shows at the fairgrounds said they find the events – and their advertising, such as billboards – offensive, and also questioned whether a familyoriented venue such as the fairgrounds is an appropriate place to hold them. “I see gun violence as a society-wide problem and glorification of guns is one important aspect of that problem,� said Del Mar resident Bud Emerson. Banning the gun shows at the fairgrounds, said Emerson, would be “a small but important step at the local level to address the problem of gun violence.� But supporters of the gun shows spoke with equal passion.

“I’m here to defend my God-given rights as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution,� said Thomas Stephan of Ramona. The Del Mar gun show is the best in the region, he said. “It’s where law-abiding citizens go to shop for the tools they need to defend themselves from the bad guys.� The speakers included state Sen. Joel Anderson, REast County, who urged the board to continue to allow gun shows to be held at the fairgrounds. Bob Templeton, owner of Crossroads of the West, said additional gun restrictions aren’t needed in California, because the state already bans the sale of assault rifles and large capacity magazines such as the ones used by the Connecticut shooter. In addition, the state requires a 10-day waiting period and a background check for any gun

HOUSING continued from page 1 come bracket (a population that constitutes between 20 and 25 percent of Del Mar residents). Del Mar faces a challenge in that there’s limited space that could accommodate at least 20 units per acre, a number determined by HCD to be the lowest density possible to achieve affordability, and most of residents’ concerns have been in relation to this “sites inventory� portion of the housing element — figuring

out where to put new units within Del Mar’s built-out, environmentally-sensitive, high-value land space. “I’m confident that the city has a wide variety of housing programs that will help demonstrate that we have good programs in place to achieve affordable housing,� said Del Mar Planning Manager Adam Birnbaum. “As to whether the state is going to sign off on all of those, especially the site inventory and whether enough land is designated at that density, that’s a harder one for us to know.� After much community discussion, the commission

events each year, which generate $324,000 in annual income for the fairgrounds. “California has the most stringent gun-control laws in the nation. These shows are heavily regulated,� said Day. He said he has spoken to law enforcement officials who believe that gun shows held on public property are likely safer than those held in private venues, in part because of a strong presence by uniformed and undercover officers to ensure compliance with local, state and federal gun laws.

Templeton said the rules are strictly enforced by law enforcement officials who attend the gun shows. “There are no illegal activities that take place at any gun show,� he said. Holliday said she was not discouraged by the 22nd DAA board’s response to her petition, which was signed by 750 people within the first 36 hours of its posting online.

Whistleblower to tell corporate tale at local luncheon The movie “The Informant,” starring Matt Damon, is based on the real-life story of Mark Whitacre, the 1990s whistleblower in the infamous Archer Daniels Midland price-fixing conspiracy. Whitacre, the FBI’s key informant in the case, has bipolar disorder and will discuss his life journey as a guest of the International Bipolar Foundation at a luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24, at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel. Whitacre, an Ivy League, Ph.D. and the highest-ranked executive of any Fortunate 500 company to become a whistleblower in U.S. history, currently holds the position of Chief Operating Officer and President of Operations at Cypress Systems, Inc. Drawing from his unique history, he will provide a one-of-a-kind insight into corporate ethics, corporate greed and the warning signs of a flawed corporate leadership. After simultaneously completing B.S. and M.S. degrees at Ohio State University, Whitacre earned his Ph. D. at Cornell University in nutritional biochemistry. He

worked for multiple Fortune 500 companies, including Ralston Purina, Degussa (Evonik), and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). He was hired at ADM when he was 32, and as the president of the BioProducts Division from its launch, was the youngest divisional president in the history of the company. In just six years, its fermentation complex became one of the largest in the world. At age 35, he became a corporate vice president of ADM and was the leading candidate to become the next company president. His more than two decades of top management experience, as well as his experience with the ADM price-fixing scandal and the FBI, give him a unique, seasoned perspective on leadership in the corporate world. RSVP for lunch tickets, $65, by Jan. 15 to Ashley Jacobs (858) 764-2496 or Checks can be made payable to International Bipolar Foundation and mailed to 8895 Towne Centre Drive, Suite 105-360 San Diego, CA 92122.

Accomplished interior architect/designer to open home décor store BY KATHY DAY Molly Proul knows what it’s like to change jobs. Each time that she’s made a change, she’s taken what she learned and applied the lessons to the next position. Now the Del Mar interior architect/designer, wife, mother and Del Mar Heights Elementary School PTA President is about to put another notch in her belt. Having opened MMP Design Solutions and getting it on the road to success, she’s now preparing to open a home décor store at 1228 Camino del Mar in Del Mar. Set for a spring opening, MMP Home will feature accessories of all types, as well as its own furniture line that will be made in San Diego. While owning a full-service design firm specializing in interior and exterior design was her ultimate career goal, it took a few steps along the way to get there. “As a woman, there really is a glass ceiling,” Proul said. “You can’t just go to work. You have to be a good wife, a good mother, part of the school and keep your health.” She’s done all of the above, including faced down post-partum depression and her husband’s

Proul, Associate AIA, Allied member ASID, IIDA Where: 11230 Sorrento Valley Road #140 Phone: (858) 761-8951 Web: brain surgery this past August. “Life hits you,” she said. “It’s how you deal with life and it’s challenges. Don’t give up. Surround yourself with intelligent people with integrity.” A native of Newport Beach, she grew up on the water, sailing and teaching the sport she and her husband Eric still enjoy. The couple knew each other “as little kids … we didn’t like each other,” she said. But when she went to work for him at Balboa Yacht Club, they fell in love, spending their first date on a boat in the summer’s weekly Beer Can race series. It ended with a kiss; on New Year’s Eve they celebrated their 19th anniversary. They attended the University of Southern California, where she studied pho-

tography and film. She dropped out after they married, and he graduated in electrical engineering. “My dad was a lawyer and I thought he should be a lawyer, so I signed him up for the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test),” Proul said with a chuckle. He was accepted to the University of San Diego School of Law. Meanwhile, she tried to figure out what she wanted to do, eventually settling in as a teacher’s aide at La Jolla Elementary School. But to get that job she had to be a student, so she enrolled in meteorology and interior design/architecture classes at Mesa College. “I got a ‘D’ in meteorology and an ‘A-plus’ in the design class,” she said, adding that her teacher encouraged her to get an internship. With Ross Theile’s studio near the elementary school, she mustered up her courage and asked for a spot. “Elizabeth Theile hired me and taught me,” she said. “Mr. Theile told me, ‘Don’t call a couch a couch. It’s a sofa. And things are not cheap – they are inexpensive. … They are beautiful, classy people with amazing taste.”

Molly Proul, owner of MMP Design Solutions, will open MMP Home this spring. That experience set Proul on course to the Design Institute of San Diego, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Her first job as a designer was at BKM OfficeWorks where she gained experience in space planning and commercial projects. When her husband took a job with a Laguna Beach law firm, they moved back to Newport Beach and she went to work for one of the largest residential, model home design firms in Southern California, doing everything from selecting paint colors and furnishings

to overseeing installation of entire model homes. And then came a call from a Taco Bell executive that would take her into a new world. “I was so shocked,” she said. “Why would they want me, but I knew it was an opportunity to work in corporate America so I took it.” The job entailed figuring out how the fast foot establishment’s kitchens function, improving efficiency and even designing equipment. “I even worked in the restaurants to learn how the food is built and what uten-

sils they used.” But then another move to San Francisco brought another shift of gears – this time to Gap, Inc., and the world of retail. She worked with its international team, creating stores around the world. When the downturn of the ‘90s came and layoffs began, they moved her first to the domestic unit and then when they laid off the entire architectural/design staff, somehow she survived, she said. They moved her to the marketing department where she learned about copywriting and graphic design. “It was a fascinating experience … I knew at the end of the day I wanted to own my own business and that I needed to get back to design.” She eventually left Gap to have her baby – who’s now 8. Before long, she got back to business, working from her home. Among the jobs she logged were interiors for a 365-room hotel, as well as tasting rooms and other spaces for several winery owners. And then came another one of those calls out of the See HOME, Page 19

Teen Volunteers in Action assist Monarch School students The Monarch School in downtown San Diego serves K-12 students impacted by poverty and homelessness. Joel Garcia, principal of The Monarch School, addressed teens from the local chapter of Teen Volunteers in Action in September. His comments moved many TVIA boys to further assist the Monarch students (see caption with photo at right). In addition, an article in this newspaper on Garcia’s presentation prompted a local benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous to donate $50,000 to the school. TVIA is an organization of young men in grades 7-12 who, together with their families, participate in structured programs of volunteerism, philan-

James Foster, TVIA member and sophomore at Francis Parker School, loaded his mother’s SUV with over 30 bags of gently-used clothing and helped deliver the donations to The Monarch School. The donations were collected in November and delivered to The Monarch School in early December, in time for the holidays and the cold weather. thropy and personal development.

The Gift of Giving The holidays will never be the same for the CStar Productionz clan who participated in the preparation and distribution of sandwiches, fruit and water to the homeless in downtown San Diego Christmas morning. The experience was so rewarding that they vowed to make it a yearly ritual — maybe even a monthly ritual. Christopher Estrella, founder of CStar Productionz, organized the undertaking on the spur of the moment with an email blast and by posting it on his website Christmas Eve. Those free on such short notice met downtown and traveled on foot — each

carrying a different food item which were systematically handed out to hungry people. “It was a great feeling to be able to contribute in some small way” says Estrella.” We all went home to our holiday meals with a heightened awareness of how much we have...I hope the concept spreads and more people will join us next year — or do it on their own.” For more information on CStar Production events, visit

SB woman, 93, pens memoir of growing up tough in rural Indiana BY CLAIRE HARLIN Many longtime Solana Beach residents know Ruth Gunther as the owner of Gunther Realty, which operated for more than 25 years on Plaza Street at the current site of Sushi Solana, right by Fletcher Cove. A successful real estate agent during a growing time for the city, Gunther bought and sold many a home during the 1970s and 1980s, and she was the creative eye behind the Victorianstyle remodel of her former office, which bears the same facade to this day. At 93, Gunther still practices real estate on occasion and she’s active with the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church and the senior center there. And if you are wondering where all that energy comes from, you may look to her latest project for the answer — a book chronicling her childhood years growing up with no running water or electricity on a farm in Indiana. The memoir, “Papa Said,” hit the market in December and she’s scheduled to do a book signing and discussion at the Presbyterian church on Jan. 16 at noon. The memories in her book date back to when she was between ages 3 and 7 — her youthful, innocent perspectives on growing up without much money, but with lots of love. Gunther was the fourth of 12 brothers and sisters, and she remembers vividly how she felt about losing the fami-

Ruth Gunther with family ly farm, getting along with her ornery brothers and learning from her dad’s heartfelt advice. “When it’s rough times you either decide you are going to do better for yourself and your family or not … I was always a self-starter, and I had a lot of energy,” she said. “I had a determination that life was going to be different than some of the things I saw growing up.” Gunther writes about how her mom made clothes for the kids out of feed sacks and how her family took in bums off the street and gave them work and fed them. “The way I wrote the book, I just imagining I was on the porch

of the house and I remembered every detail of the farm,” she said. “I could see my dog and all the things that happened … I remember when my dad’s leg got caught in the belt of an old motorized washing machine. I remember it because it was traumatic for me … I can still see him lying there.” Gunther began crafting the book in the late 1970s after she took her kids and their families to visit her old house, located on a gravel road more than a mile outside of Pittsburg, Indiana. There were people living in the home, however, when they let her enter it, she remembered it as though it was yesterday, and her children and grandchildren were intrigued by her stories of how life was back then. “I was telling them all about it and the kids said, ‘You’ve got to write this down for us,’” Gunther said. For years, she jotted down little stories, and it wasn’t until about a year ago that she strung them together chronologically — at the behest of her daughter-inlaw who encouraged her to enter her writing into a Guideposts “Inspiring Voices” book publishing contest. Through writing the book Gunther hopes to pass on the inspiration she took from her father and has carried with her throughout her life. “In hard times he was patient,” Gunther said of her father.

Ruth Gunther “He couldn’t say ‘no’ to anybody, and he would spend all night outside with a sick cow if he needed to. I have never known anyone who lives as much by their faith as he did.” Gunther’s daughter, Dana, edited the book and said she enjoyed reading it more and more each time she read it. “She has such a great memory,” said Dana, the Torrey Pines High School attendance secretary.

ROBERTS continued from page 1 He said he believes he will bring a new “activist perspective’’ on some issues, and a shared vision on others. He didn’t specify the issues. Roberts listed several goals, including maintaining fiscal discipline, sustaining the environment, protecting neighborhoods from over-development and reviewing foster care and adoption policies. The new supervisor is the father of five adopted children. Supervisors Greg Cox and Dianne Jacob were both re-elected outright in June. Cox bested Deputy City Attorney Brant Will to continue to represent the district, which includes the southern region of San Diego, the cities of Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach and National City, along with the unincorporated communities of Bonita and Point Loma. Jacob cruised to re-election for her East County seat over Rudy Reyes, an archaeologist who was severely burned in the 2003 Cedar Fire. He also unsuccessfully challenged Jacob in 2008. Cox and Jacob both listed public safety and fire protection as their main priorities. “My goal in the coming years will be to make this region the best prepared we can possibly be, not just for fire but for any kind of emergency,’’ Jacob said. Combined, the supervisors represent more than 3 million residents and oversee a nearly $5 billion budget.

Two couples from former Valitar cast stay in San Diego to launch Equidae • Hands-on equestrian and thrill riding event to take place Jan. 12 and 13 BY CLAIRE HARLIN Trapese artist Kimberly Souren and her husband Nicolas, a juggler, were on tour performing in Europe when they agreed to move to San Diego to perform in Valitar at the Del Mar Fairgrounds — a contract they said, monetarily speaking, they couldn’t pass up. Within only days of the equine-human acrobatic show’s November opening, however, they found the opportunity was too good to be true, with the show’s producers abandoning the cast and crew with no pay, and horses with no food. But the unfortunate string of events was somewhat of a new beginning — or blessing in disguise, perhaps — for the Sourens, who have always wanted to put on their own show but have opted for the safety net of signing contracts with big traveling acts. Left unemployed after Valitar, they had to come up with a plan. “When we signed the contract with Valitar, we had to say ‘no’ to all the other opportunities, so when they closed the show we were forced to wait until 2014 to sign more contracts,” Kimberly said. The Sourens, with several other former Valitar performers, put on the show “Liberte” in December to help recoup wages, but many left San Diego after that one-time event. The Sourens, however, see opportunity in San Diego, and stayed along with Nicolas’ cousin, Christine Zerbini Kumisbayev, and her husband, Sultanbek Kumisbayev, to join forces on their new interactive production “Equidae.” The debut of the performance — set for Jan. 12 and 13 at Bonsall’s Horse Spirit Ranch — will include a trapeze act, Roman riding, juggling, hula hooping and cross-act extreme thrill riding — which was a big highlight of the Valitar show.

The two couples will then offer a howto clinic on trick riding, and a VIP lunch will be served. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Horse Spirit Ranch, which rescues horses and housed the six Valitar horses for free after the show closed. Those six horses will be the stars of Equidae. While the performance was inspired out of necessity, Kimberly said she’s happy to work with her fellow family members. Having been hired to manage the wardrobe at Valitar — her first-ever non performance role — she’s also happy to get back to her art of trapeze. Kimberly said that even though the last few months have been tumultuous, they’ve brought opportunity and also renewed her faith in humanity. “I forgot how kind people can be,” she said, referring to the many people who offered free services and products or opened their homes to the cast left behind by Valitar. Not only did Rancho Santa Fe resident Linda Davis track down and purchase one of the abandoned horses, but hotels such as the Hilton Del Mar offered free stays. She also said a number of locals invited her family to their Christmas dinners and bought presents for their kids. The Sourens have a 2-year-old son, Lucas, and the Kumisbayevs have three kids, ages 2 to 12. They all reside in Escondido. “We live in a dog-eat-dog world,” said Kimberly. “It was so touching how people stepped up and treated us like family.” For more information on Equidae or to register by Jan. 10, visit www.EquidaeShow. com or call (760) 822-3579. The Horse Spirit Ranch is located at 3712 Villa Del Sol in Bonsall.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Carmel Valley faces ‘Traffic Cliff’ DMUSD teachers thank At the heart of our nation’s fiscal cliff was our government’s willingness to spend more than can be supported by its revenue sources. Carmel Valley now faces its own “Traffic Cliff” in Kilroy’s request for our community’s approval of its recently reduced One Paseo, which is still nearly one million square feet more than the current City approval. When you add their request to another one million square feet that neighboring landowners are already approved to build, some of which is already in planning, our community’s streets will simply be unable to support the traffic that it brings. While we applaud its mixed-use concept, our community must insist the developer further reduce One Paseo at the Jan. 24 meeting of the Community Planning Board, or we surely will go over a “Traffic Cliff” into a sea of perpetual traffic congestion. As many are aware, the City entitles each parcel in a community with a specific build-out capacity such that the traffic generated by the total build-out of all the parcels will not overload the capacity of its streets. Periodically the City measures the actual traffic on each street and gives it a Level of Service (LOS) grade A through F. Like a school grade, the City considers LOS F “unacceptable” and characterized by “...extremely low speeds caused by intersection congestion, high delay, and adverse signal progression...”. A 2009 Traffic Study indicated that segment of Del Mar Heights Road between I-5 and El Camino Real was already at LOS D “where small increases in volume produce substantial increases in delay,” an accurate description of the delays we all experience already. The nearly 1 million square feet of already entitled future development surrounding but not including One Paseo are roughly the size of four Del Mar Highlands centers. These include another 150,000-square-foot Del Mar Highlands expansion and one more 150,000 Neurocrine building to the south of One Paseo. Build-out of this 1 million square feet alone will take Del Mar Heights Road well beyond the unacceptable LOS F level, even before considering One Paseo’s request for an additional million square feet over their approval. Proposals such as the

developer’s synchronized traffic light offer have already been discredited as an effective mitigation measure. It’s well known in real estate circles that Kilroy overpaid for the parcel based on its 500,000-square-foot entitlement, hence the request for an additional million square feet to “make it pencil.” But to gain approval the developer had to deliver a traffic study to the City that accounted for both its neighbors’ already approved million square feet, plus the million it wants to add, and not have it show traffic generation beyond the threshold of LOS F. How did it approach this? Magicians call it misdirection: while Kilroy focused our attention on tasty barbecues, idyllic renderings and the convenience of one 13,000-square-foot specialty food store, their traffic engineers were making the nearly 1 million square feet of its neighbors’ already approved entitlements disappear, at least from the all-important traffic study they submitted to the City. Unfortunately, being glossed over by Kilroy will not keep those other owners from building out their development rights. By themselves and even before considering the reduced One Paseo, these build-outs will take our main arteries over the Traffic Cliff and into LOS F, bringing much extended commuting times to and from work and school, interminable waits during peak hours and events, and unacceptable response times for emergency vehicles. Our own 11th hour for avoiding going over the Traffic Cliff is Jan. 24, the next meeting of the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board, when the developer will present its recently reduced One Paseo and request the Community and Planning Board’s support. Join us at this meeting to insist the developer produce a complete traffic study, and use it to actually work in good faith with the board to arrive at a much smaller, more traffic-friendly plan that still includes Trader Joe’s, but adds less congestion to our streets so we can continue to enjoy our community and what in many other respects is a well-conceived mixed use development.

Polo fields lease: Where is the City of San Diego? Anyone who drove along Via De La Valle from I-5 to Morgan Run in early January 2013 was confronted by warning signs that warned of congestion along that road during the weekend of Jan. 5-6. This warning was well founded since the traffic and haphazard parking created a scene beyond imagination — so much for the lease between the City of San Diego and the Polo Club that prohibits events that attract large numbers of automobiles. A lease, by the way, that expired in March 2012 and the city has promised will not be renewed without competitive bidding and complete transparency. During the weekend noted above, cars were parked everywhere — on Via De La Valle, on the polo fields and every space within a mile of the polo fields that accommodate a car. Our neighborhood was overwhelmed by the traffic and parking and our privacy was disdained by the attendees to the event. This must not be allowed to take place in the future. The City of San Diego must stand up for the rights of the taxpaying citizens. Obviously the thousands of people that invaded our neighborhood and disturbed our peace are by and large from somewhere else. They should practice their mayhem in their own neighborhoods. So we say to the City of San Diego, where are you? What’s happening with the lease? Where is your transparency? Where is your public bidding? And when will you start to stand up for those of us who live around the polo fields and pay our taxes to the city. We have received no answers to our phone calls and e-mails and it’s time for our elected representatives to represent us. Mr. and Mrs Rudy L. Biller

supporters of Prop CC

The teachers of the Del Mar Union School District would like to thank the many parents, teachers and administrators who worked tirelessly on their own time in support of Proposition CC. We would like to especially thank Suzanne Hall, Jen Charat, and Janet Handsel. They were the driving force of the campaign and worked tirelessly. We would like to thank teachers Fred Bettig, who served as treasurer, and Bill Porter, who organized the phone bank. We truly appreciate our superintendent Holly McClurg, who worked alongside us at the phone bank, and Comischell Rodriguez, our former board member who donated office space and made phone calls with us. While we are disappointed Proposition CC did not pass, we are committed to working with our district to come up with solutions to our budget shortfall. Del Mar teachers care deeply for our students and our wonderful district and have been problem solving budget issues for years. We have contributed over $1.1 million back to the General Fund over the past two years in surplus funds retained from Health Care benefits. This is a result of many teachers choosing less expensive HMO options vs. PPO options due to the increased cost, and therefore not using all of their benefit dollars. A reduction of our Extended Studies positions (Art, Science, Music) has saved the district over $700,000, and the reduction in teacher’s salary (1.5-1.8 percent) through the elimination of staff development days has resulted in a savings of $300,000. Teachers of Del Mar were thankful to be active participants in the budget workshop held Wednesday, Dec. 19, at Del Mar Hills Academy, where we presented other ways staff has problem solved to save money, and ideas for future savings. We look forward to working with our administration and school board to find creative, cost-saving measures while still retaining the high quality of education we are proud of. Gina Williams-Vargus DMCTA Vice President

No more twisting of the adopted zoning code regulations Did you know that a commercial property owner in Del Mar has filed a $14,762,000-plus attorney and legal costs lawsuit against the City of Del Mar? You won’t believe what it is all about! After the City adopted an overwhelming volume of Zoning Code regulations for developers and residents to abide by, this commercial property owner has produced a very extensive list of commercial property developments that have been approved, and allowed to proceed, over the years in alleged violation of adopted zoning code regulations. Looking at the list, it would appear the property owner has a legitimate case against the city, but it will be up to the court. We are beginning a New Year with two new Council members who have not been involved with any of these alleged violations. Let’s hope that henceforth the City Council, with accurate advice from the City Attorney, will make sure future developments will only be approved per the adopted regulations of the city and state, as interpreted by the ordinary and customary use of the English language. Please, no more twisting of the rules and language, which may lead to expensive lawsuits. Ralph Peck Del Mar

Letters to the Editor/Opinion The hubris of inflexible principles — issue arrogance Less than 1 percent of taxpayers would face a tax increase. The out-of-control Alternate Minimum Tax would become a relic of history. Dividend and capital gains tax rates would not rise. Sounds like a proposal that the Republicans would enthusiastically support, especially following a Presidential loss and after losing seats in the Senate and the House. But a relatively small element within the Tea Party caucus denied leader Boehner the votes he needed to pass such a bill. Even low tax mavens Paul Ryan and Grover Norquist gave the legislation their blessing. It would have called the President’s bluff by conceding on a small tax increase for those earning over a million dollars while making one important tax reform and maintaining the Bush cuts for more than 99 percent of taxpayers. I know it would not have passed in the Senate but it would have placed the Republicans in a far better position than where they stand today. How about modest adjustments to Social Security by way of more accurately measuring inflation, a gradual increase in the qualifying age for benefits and some modest means testing? Democratic left wing nuts reject these reasonable steps that would preserve Social Security for our children. They also ferociously object to any changes in Medicare and Medicaid, both of which are on the path to insolvency. This kind of intransigence does have a remedy. But since we have President HubrisIn-Chief, irrational defiance persists and a remedy will remain elusive. In the good old days when ideological purity was not in residence in the White House, politics was played as a game of genuine compromise, understanding something called the greater

HOME continued from page 9 blue, this time from a headhunter for Jack in the Box. She had just interviewed with Albertsons, but wasn’t inclined to relocate to Idaho for the job. “At the time I was at a point with my business that I either had to close it or move out and hire people,” she said. After two interviews with Jack in the Box – which had been the subject of many conversations when she was at Taco Bell — and lots of reflection, she took the job with Jack in the Box as director of the architecture, engineering and design department. She and their daughter moved back to San Diego for the job, while Eric commuted until he landed a job here; he’s now in-house counsel for Websense. For those who remember the rollout of the redesigned Jack logo and the stores’ new look, Proul played an integral part not just in overseeing the changeover but in its actual creation. But in 2009, she left the company and took time to regroup, she said. “Our daughter was in kindergarten and it was time to get in

good. The key element in finding accommodation has traditionally been a President who leads. He’d call together leadership from both parties. He’d employ his immense prestige to peal off votes from the extremes in both parties for compromise in the people’s interest. Having established good relationships with members of the other party the President would nurture trust and compromise. Make no mistake about it; the President is the moving party in the budget fiasco. He does not demonstrate leadership by making speeches offering selected constituencies’ goodies, inciting class divisions and crafting rhetorically vacuous platitudes for public consumption. The President is expert in this style of political conflict. But the unpublicized, behind-the-scenes activity for the good of the people, where public bravado and acclamation don’t count, can’t be found among Mr. Obama’s talents. As arrogant as the President appears to be, I have to say there are those from both extremes who share that unattractive characteristic. They call it principles. I call it issue arrogance. Presidential power complemented by good relations with leadership from the other side of the aisle, in conjunction with a desire to truly do the people’s business, leads to crafting grand compromise out of inflexible positions. The President has had years, as a senator and president, to establish the personal relationships that are critical when hard choices need to be made. Having instead led largely by fiat, Mr. Obama never laid a foundation for comity. As a consequence, the extremes are seeded veto power. Michael Hayutin

touch with my priorities.” Then in 2010, a Realtor friend needed help with staging a home. “I took that first check for $125 and opened a business account and decided I’m getting back in business.” When she created MMP Design Solutions, she said she knew she eventually wanted to be part of Jack in the Box again and to work on restaurants and hotels. But she kicked off the business in the residential arena, developing a sort of niche helping clients who were divorced and moving into condos set up their new environments. “They needed everything from plates and bedding to furniture and paint,” she said. Then, through LinkedIn, she reconnected with Jack in the Box, first working on a project for a franchisee. But the franchise fell through and the store went back to corporate control. Soon after she was invited by corporate officials to attend a meeting with franchisees and was welcomed back into the fold. Today her business reflects her attitude that if you “do something you enjoy and something that my daughter and husband can

be proud of” you will succeed. MMP Design Solutions, a licensed architecture, engineering, interior design, project management and construction firm, is growing, with clients ranging from supermarkets to strip malls and a new hotel. She is seeking clients through the north and southwest, including Alaska, Hawaii and Texas, she said. Proul is hiring people who bring special skills to the mix. Her employees include two wounded warriors, moms she knows from PTA who want to work but also want a flexible schedule that enables them to pick up and drop off their children at school, and an architect. “I like that I’ve helped people who were unemployed,” she said, adding that she will hire more as the business grows and as she opens MMP Home. Noting that there are no home décor stores in the Del Mar Village, she said she sees a need for “retail that is tangible, not high end. We want to be accessible and inspiring.” The store will also offer design services, she added. “I love the fact that we can find you a light fixture or we can find you a lot to build on,” Proul said.

BAN continued from page 1 Soon after the Connecticut tragedy, Holliday hand wrote a sign that reads “Stop Del Mar Gun Show and Sale” and placed it in her front yard, and within a couple weeks she has amassed the support of at least 70 residents, many of whom have signed a petition to ban gun shows in Del Mar. She also invited those interested in the cause to attend an organizational meeting on Jan. 6. She said she expected about 25 people, however, at least 50 people showed up and packed her Del Mar home. “At the bottom of the sign I put my email address, so I’ve been getting a lot of emails,” she said. “People are even coming up to me at the store asking how they can get involved.” In recent weeks, some gun shows in Connecticut have been banned, and other places across the country — from New York to central Texas — are looking into similar measures. Holliday said she hopes efforts in Del Mar will be a model for the entire state. “They banned shows in Connecticut, and the 3,000 miles between us means nothing,” she said. “I’d feel the same way about this if Sandy Hook was a mile away.” Crossroads of the West owner Bob Templeton said he’s “been through this in the past with the residents of Del Mar.” He will provide protest space at his upcoming show if necessary, he added. “If the residents of Del Mar wish to protest, we support their First Amendment right to do that,” said Templeton, who has been putting on gun shows for 35 years. “But I hope they will also respect our Second Amendment right to own firearms lawfully.” He added that gun shows are one of the most highly regulated industries in California, and there are both uniformed and undercover officers from the California Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms and local sheriff’s departments at each show. Templeton said he is in a three-year contract with the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Del Mar is one of the most attended of his 13 show locations, next to Orange County. “We don’t plan to change anything that we have in place,” he said, adding that he is not anticipat-


ing that the petition will have any impact on his company’s operations. “There are lot of people in San Diego County who own and use firearms, and they are upset by the fact that others would try to curtail their right to own and buy them,” Templeton said. Holliday and several people opposing the show presented their case to the 22nd District Agricultural Association at its Jan. 8 meeting (see story on page 1). For more information, contact Holliday at Roseanne@ To view the petition, visit https://www.

PAGE continued from page 5 In recent years Page starred in local PBS music specials. It was during the year of her 50th anniversary in show business that PBS filmed a retrospective of her life and career. She has also been honored by the Puccini Foundation, which recognized her achievements in the arts, and was inducted into the Casino Legend Hall of Fame for her numerous appearances in Las Vegas Casinos. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has been inducted into the Country Music Walk of Fame, just two of many honors earned. In 1997, Mercury, her former recording label, staged a retrospective at Carnegie Hall for Page who starred with guest artists whom she had not seen for decades. The line-up of songs were then captured on CD for which Page earned her first GRAMMY award in 1999.

Before Page passed away the rights to her music were licensed to a writer/producer to create a musical and last month it played off Broadway for 10 days. There are plans for the show to do a national tour. “I hope Patti’s legacy lives on forever,” said Glynn. “She contributed so much to the entertainment industry.” Page leaves behind a son, Daniel O’Curran; a daughter, Kathleen Ginn; a sister, Peggy Leyton; 14 grandchildren and six greatgrandchildren. The Solana Beach Presbyterian Church held a public viewing on Wednesday, Jan. 9. Page was interred in El Camino Memorial Cemetery in Sorrento Valley. Flowers may be sent to El Camino Memorial, Sorrento Valley, 5600 Carroll Canyon Road, San Diego, CA 92121. Memorial donations may be made to Society of Singers, Inc., 26500 W.

Manchester Boys U9 starts 2013 with a win The Manchester Boys U9 dominated their division recently at the Arsenal Winter Classic in Riverside. The team won 5-1, 5-0, 7-0 in the semi-final and 8-0 in the final. It was a great weekend for Coach Steve Hill and the team.

The Manchester Soccer Club Boys U8 Academy Team are Coronado Holiday Cup Champions! The boys played four games over the weekend and came out on top against Carlsbad Wave in a hard-fought final. In the first game of bracket play, Manchester were off to a strong start against Carlsbad Wave, gaining a 4-0 lead in the first half. In the second half, Wave fought their way back into the game, but Manchester never lost their composure and walked away with a 5-4 win. Next, Manchester comfortably beat Vista Storm, and then ended up drawing the final bracket game against a feisty CSC team. In the final, Manchester again took on Carlsbad Wave. After some strong goal-tending, the game was tied 1-1 at half time. However, in the second half, Manchester poured on the pressure and earned a 3-2 victory to capture the cup. During the last few months, Manchester’s DOC Billy Garton has been heading the team. Garton was “very pleased with how well the boys played”, noting that they “had played some great soccer”. He also thanked field-players Brenan Klein and Logan Hershey for sharing the goal tending duties during the tournament. Garton is now handing the team over to coach Ryan Penton.

For local soccer star, success is the name of the game • TPHS grad now an MVP player at Dartmouth BY ROB LEDONNE As a young girl living in sunny Rancho Santa Fe, Jackie Friedman emulated her older sister. This was especially true when she’d attend her club matches and dreamt of being out on the field with her. Little did she know at the time, that was the start of an ongoing passion that’s guided her throughout her entire life. “I used to go to all of my sister’s games and ended up starting to play when I was about 5 years old,” remembers Friedman from her home in Rancho Santa Fe during Christmas break. “I actually hated playing at first, but I stuck with it and realized I was good... so I kept on doing it.” Friedman not only kept on doing it, she became one of the area’s biggest soccer success stories after recently receiving a smattering of accolades while playing collegiate soccer for Dartmouth College. But like any classic success story, there was a lot of hard work along the way — and most of that took place in North County. “I played soccer all the time, even with the boys at recess. It was just always really fun to me,” said Friedman, who first played on a recreation team simply because there were no clubs that accepted players under 8 years old. Friedman’s debut on an actual team was playing for the Rancho Santa Fe Attack, followed by a longer stint with the Surf soccer club, playing there until she was 18. In addition to the soccer clubs, Friedman also played varsity for Torrey Pines High School and racked up numerous accolades, including being voted team MVP, and as a result steadily gained a reputation in the San Diego area as a rising star; all the more impressive since she kept her grades high the entire time. All the while, her parents were there providing support: “My mom and dad went to all my games, whether it was high school, club, or summer rec. When they didn’t come I’d be freaking out.” Stellar grades or buzzed-about playing are two separate factors that woo colleges, but the two together made Friedman a score for any school searching for an exemplary addition to their campus.

Jackie Friedman playing for Dartmouth. “I never was someone who had a dream school, I just knew I wanted to use soccer to get the best education I could possibly get,” Friedman explains. “Ivy League schools popped up, and at first I was looking at Pepperdine and Columbia, among others. I went to so many campuses, but Dartmouth wound up to be the best fit for me.” Arriving on Dartmouth’s campus in Hanover, New Hampshire, thousands of miles from the ocean waves in San Diego

may be a culture shock for some students, but Friedman explains that soccer made the transition a bit easier: “Because I joined the team there, I had to be on campus two weeks before everyone else and was on a very strict schedule,” she remembers. After quickly acclimating to the school during the fall of her freshman year in 2011, she soon realized how different playing collegiate soccer is from smaller clubs and teams. “It’s just 100 percent all of the time,” explains Friedman of its intensity. “You need to be constantly game ready, even during practices. You never have your own spot, so you’re constantly fighting to maintain it. It’s just elevated competition.” However, just as Friedman was a standout in San Diego she became a standout at Dartmouth. Since first playing she’s been a starter every game, and all of her hardwork paid off this past September when she was voted team MVP, something made all the more sweet since she’s become best friends with her teammates. “I just love all the girls on the team; I love being able to spend time with them.” At the same time, she made the Dean’s list— not an easy task at an Ivy League school where playing a sport that takes up much of her time. Friedman is typically optimistic about her future, which includes a trip to Europe she’s taking with her team to play and be a tourist this coming summer. “We’re going to England and Scotland to play a few Jackie Friedman when she games. I’m really looking forward to it.” Nowadays when she comes back to the area to visit, played for Del Mar Surf. she can’t help but reminisce as she passes all the places that shaped her life. “It brings up so many memories and thoughts. For example, I’ve spent so many hours of my life playing on the Polo Fields, during surf clubs and national league, between practice and running. I was there constantly from when I was 11 to when I was 18. Now, when I see the really young soccer players out there it makes me sad I can never do that again.” As for her proudest moment in a sea of them, Friedman can’t pinpoint one in particular: “I really don’t know. I was happy just getting into college, but I’m trying to take whatever happens in stride.”

The Claire Lynch Band

Del Mar Foundation to present special ‘Bluegrass & Beyond’ concert The Del Mar Foundation’s Cultural Arts Committee presents The Claire Lynch Band in a special “bluegrass & beyond” performance at the Del Mar Powerhouse on Sunday, Jan. 27, at 7 p.m. (doors at 6:30 p.m.). By any measure, the Claire Lynch Band is high on the bluegrass world’s A-List. Claire Lynch has twice won the Female Vocalist of the Year trophy from the International Bluegrass Music Association, and has two Grammy nominations for Best Bluegrass Album. In 2012, Lynch was named a United States Artists fellow, a $50,000 grant given each year to 50 of America’s finest artists across eight disciplines, including music. Lynch was a rare woman in bluegrass when she led the Front Porch String Band in the 1970s. Today, the Claire Lynch Band is acclaimed for its distinctive, seasoned sound that is simultaneously unpretentious and richly textured. It’s a down-home, front porch sensibility — until you realize that it’s a rare front porch, indeed, that has ever hosted musicians of this caliber. Matt Wingate, a remarkably soulful “young gun,” won the MerleFest Doc Watson Guitar Championship at the age of 15. Bryan McDowell, currently just 21 years old, amassed 21 first place wins in competitions in 2009-10. Bassist Mark Schatz brings a masterful instinct for groove that garnered him two IBMA Bass Player of the Year awards. Dolly Parton credits Lynch with “one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today.” Equally gifted as a songwriter, Lynch’s songs have been recorded by The Seldom Scene, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, Cherryholmes, and others. After a distinguished career as a Rounder Records recording, Lynch has just wrapped up studio work on a new album, set for release in 2013 by Compass Records. The Foundation invites the Del Mar community to help welcome Claire Lynch back to the Powerhouse for a show featuring her soon-to-be-released new work, along with songs from her rich and varied repertoire. Advance tickets are available at Check the website on the day of the event to see if tickets will be available at the door.

BY KATHY DAY Next time you’re out surfing or walking along the beach, look to the east and imagine what it looked like 200,000 years ago when camels roamed the land. That’s a favorite part of the speech Michael Wall, Ph.D., likes to include when he’s talking about the San Diego Natural History Museum – which is now known as The Nat – and the biodiversity of the north coastal part of San Diego. The Solana Beach resident has been the Balboa Park museum’s curator of entomology since January 2006. He is also the director of the Biodiversity Research Center of the Californias (BRCC), as well as vice president of research and public programs. He worked on the 2010 BioBlitz at Torrey Pines State Reserve where 530 different species of insects were identified along with 11 of the 25 species of amphibian and reptiles that have been documented in the reserve. “There is a lot of biodiversity in our backyard,” he said in a recent interview, adding that the BRCC is truly the scientific research center of Southern California and Baja California. “People typically think of the tropics or the Great Barrier Reef” when they think of biodiversity. In Wall’s roles he keeps a close watch on the changes the region is seeing – everything from changes in the ant population to the influx of invasive species. With research and exploring the region at the center of his work — and his personal interest in entymology — he is well positioned to tell the story

BY KATHY DAY One of those who helped with The Nat’s Plant Atlas for about seven years was Del Mar resident Karen Rich. While she has been a botanist for 25 years and was on The Nat staff when she first took on her grid, she said that is “atypical. Most of the volunteers are not educated in botany.” Instead they are people who like the outdoors and are interested in their surroundings, she added. Museum staff holds regular training sessions to teach them how to get the samples and what is expected of them and then they pick the grid where they want to work. “I’m basically lazy so I picked the area where I live,” she said. That covered the area roughly between Via de la Valle, Del Mar Heights, I-5 to the west and Torrey Pines High School to the east. “It’s an urban area — perhaps not so glamorous but it was interesting to learn what grows around where I live.” During walks with her husband she primarily focused on four natural spaces which she tried to visit once a month, all the while looking for flowers and fruit on trees, grasses, cacti, perennials and annuals – but not those cultivated. She found 200 different species in her wanderings, including two never before documented. One of those – a member of the night See NAT, Page B18

Eliza’s makeover in ‘Pygmalion’ mirrors Reality TV

The Old Globe’s 100th anniversary production of George Bernard Shaw’s ‘Pygmalion,’ runs through Feb. 17.

If you go What: ‘Pygmalion’ When: Jan. 12–Feb. 17 Where: 1363 Old Globe Way, Balboa Park Tickets: From $29 Phone: (619) 234-5623 Website: Insights seminar: 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14. Free. Production thoughts from panel of the artistic company. Reception at 6:30 p.m. Post-show forums: Jan. 22, Jan. 29 and Feb. 6. Free. Discuss the play with members of the cast and crew after curtain calls.

BY DIANA SAENGER The Old Globe Theatre starts the year — and its 100th anniversary production — with George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion.� Shaw penned his romantic comedy in 1912 and named it after the mythological Pygmalion, a sculptor in Cyprus who fell in love with a statue he had carved. The play is a sharp parody of the rigid British class system of the day. In 1938, Shaw adapted “Pygmalion� for the big screen with Leslie Howard and Wendy Hiller. It is best known, however, as the 1956 Broadway musical “My Fair Lady,� starring Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews — who was replaced by Audrey Hepburn for the 1956 film version. Nicholas Martin directs The Globe production, which stars Tony Award-winner Robert Sean Leonard as Professor Henry Higgins, Charlotte Parry as Eliza Doolittle, Kandis Chappell as Mrs. Higgins, Don Sparks as Mr. Doolittle, Deborah Taylor as Mrs. Pearce, and Paxton Whitehead as Colonel Pickering. The story is about a young woman who sells flowers on the streets of London and who ends up being the prop of a bet between Professor Higgins — who believes teaching her how to speak properly will change her life — and a gentleman, Colonel Pickering. Assessing “Pygmalion� as “a brilliant play with great characters,� Par-

ry said she has always wanted to play the role of Eliza Doolittle. “Eliza is a sensitive, kind of put upon flower girl ‌ but confident in her own way,â€? Parry said. “She makes quite the journey in this story, ending up at Higgins’ house with a dream of being a lady in a flower shop. She wants to get away from the life she’s trapped in.â€? At the time the play was first written, it was viewed as an observation on female independence. “At Higgins’s home where she’s being tutored, she grows into a sophisticated and confident young lady who realizes she has choices and even learns to stand up to Professor Higgins, who constantly puts her down,â€? Parry said. “At one point, she tells Higgins that the difference between a flower girl and a lady isn’t the way she behaves, but the way she’s treated. “It’s a true rags-to-riches story, but always reminds me of the movie ‘Trading Places’ (1983 starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd) where if a poor person switches lives with a rich one, they are still the same people inside and a reflection on prejudice,â€? Parry said. “Today, we love watching reality TV shows and makeovers where people’s lives are transformed; it’s human nature. That’s the basis of ‘Pygmalion,’ but it’s also a really funny classic that will entertain the audience.â€?

Local resident’s Tolani Collection of women’s wear worn by celebrities, sold around world

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANE Y. WELCH From its humble beginnings as a business run out of a modest guest room to its current stature as a global company with operations in a 15,000-sq.-ft. warehouse, the Tolani Collection has exploded in just seven years. Founded by local resident — and mother of two — Alka Tolani, the collection, comprising her signature vibrant silk garments and accessories, has risen rapidly in the highly competitive mainstream market and is a leader in the ready-to-wear wholesale fashion industry. What started as a cottage industry by Tolani – the creative and energetic powerhouse behind the designs – is now an entire line of women’s wear. Tolani’s clothing includes tunics, skirts, shorts, jump suits, dresses, jackets and more – from petite to plus sizes to maternity and everything in between. Made from top-grade, high-density, washable silk, each garment has unique colors that pop, intricate patterns, and a feminine cut, said Tolani. “It looks and feels amazing and makes a woman look great,” she added. Tolani has come a long way since her days as a school room mom and an avid PTA member who initially sold Tolani silk scarves – an introductory product that aided the learning curve – to benefit local charities. Her business took a pivotal shift when movie star Jessica Alba was photographed wearing a Tolani scarf to an LA Lakers game. That brought coverage in popular fashion magazines and helped make other Hollywood A-list stars take notice. Today Tolani designs are worn by more than 100 celebrities. With that popularity came an increase in demand and now the entire Tolani family is on board with the day-today running of what has become House of Tolani. Raj, Tolani’s husband, a scientist who creates software companies, is in charge of all logistics operations; son, Vijay, helps in the warehouse with administration and packing; and Aishya, recently graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in art, and marketing and communications, helps with designing and trade shows. Born and raised in India, Alka Tolani has been in the USA since she was 22. Her business strengthens her ties to India where production takes place. With a background in art and economics, Tolani has the ideal balance of creative and analytical skills to make her business successful. The company has over six different showrooms in the

Saks Fifth Ave, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom and more. “We supply to most of the shops where Hollywood celebrities shop,” said Tolani. Already working on designs for fall of 2013, Tolani shared that a new line will be introduced that departs from the jazzy patterns that have helped shape the Tolani brand. It will be manufactured from muted tones of plaid cotton flannel and twill. Jackets made with leather accents will be another new addition. With a more contemporary, edgy look, it’s a line that will appeal to the younger market, and one that she hopes Aishya, who has studied fashion at London’s Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, and Parsons’ the New school for Design, will be more involved with, said Tolani. It takes a creative mind, great motivation and a positive attitude to put a fashion business together, added Tolani, who said that she is still learning. When asked what’s ahead, Tolani was quick to respond, “I want to take it public, I want to have more distributors covering all the world. I love the nuts and the bolts of the business, it’s so exciting, it’s beautiful.” Visit to find out where the Tolani Collection is sold through retail.

Alka Tolani with pieces from the Tolani Collection U.S. and the lines are sold in Italy, Spain, Australia, Germany, Canada, Japan, and soon in Sweden, Finland and France. On her team, Tolani has three technical designers who take her ideas and perfect them. She also connects with fashion editors and industry insiders, and listens and learns from them. In response, details are adapted and edited. “We are constantly adding and subtracting until the last minute when the product line is complete. It’s a beautiful process,” Tolani said. Adding to the popularity of the collection is its uniqueness and its affordable price point. “We saw that there was a deficit in the mainstream market and our product filled that deficit,” said Tolani. The lines are carried by many top-rated fashion boutiques and well-known stores. Tolani supplies to Bergdorf Goodman, Kitson, Madison, Fred Segal, Neiman Marcus,

Eggs Benedict tops the menu at The Broken Yolk Cafe BY KELLEY CARLSON rom scrambled eggs to grilled chicken, The Broken Yolk Cafe offers something for everyone on its ovalshaped menu. The family-friendly restaurant — which has nine locations throughout San Diego County and in Temecula — advertises that its food is fresh and the portions are ample, as scales are not used for weighing. Customers won’t find dehydrated potatoes here; the hash browns and home fries are prepared from genuine spuds on site. They will also discover the salsa is house-made, and fruit and vegetables are sliced and diced in the kitchen rather than prepackaged. “People like that (freshness); they see the difference,” said John Gelastopoulos, who co-owns the chain with his wife, Chris. Starting at the crack of dawn until its mid-afternoon closure, The Broken Yolk serves breakfast, so that even night owls can enjoy the most important meal of the day. The top seller is Eggs Benedict, featuring two toasted English muffins topped with Canadian bacon, two poached eggs and Hollandaise sauce. Fans of omelets will find seemingly endless combinations (28 to be exact), each containing four extra-large eggs. The Mom Vegetarian Omelet is one of Broken Yolk’s signatures; it is stuffed with avocado, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, alfalfa sprouts and finished with sour cream and salsa. “Mom always tells you to eat your vegetables,” Gelastopoulos said when explaining the moniker.

■ This week’s recipe: The Broken Yolk Cafe’s The Mom Vegetarian Omelet His own favorite is Tony G’s Special, named for a patron who has consistently customized his omelet in the same manner for 18 years at the Pacific Beach location. The plate-sized, open-faced egg creation contains sautéed mushrooms, black olives, water chestnuts, green onions, tomatoes and bell peppers. The Fresh Fruit Boat, French toast, waffles, pancakes and South of the Border-themed selections are among other breakfast options. But those who have a large stomach — and the huevos — are invited to try the Broken Yolk Iron Man and Iron Woman Special, highlighted in “Man v. Food” with Adam Richman on the Travel Channel. A 6-pound, dozen-egg omelet that is filled with mushrooms, onions, American cheese and smothered with house-made chili and more cheese is served on a 15-inch pizza

The Mom Vegetarian, one of Broken Yolk’s signature omelets, is stuffed with avocado, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions and alfalfa sprouts. pan with a large pile of home fries and two biscuits. To complete the challenge, one person must finish it within an hour; winners have the $25.99 cost waived, receive a T-shirt, and have their names added to the Hall of Fame Plaque. Not only is breakfast an all-day event at The Broken Yolk, lunch is too. Customers have choices of sandwiches, street tacos, wraps, paninis, soups and salads, along with half-pound Angus burgers, many of which are named for local cities. For example, the Solana Beach Burger is defined by bacon strips, melted Jack cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on a buttered-and-grilled, sesame-seed bun, while the Del Mar Burger is piled with sauteed mushrooms, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. Ironically, the most popular patty is “nothing fancy,” according to Gelastopoulos: The Old

Reliable Burger is layered with American cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. Although the daily dishes are a draw, The Broken Yolk’s special events attract so many guests, lines form outside the door. One instance is the chain’s anniversary celebration, held every March, when about a dozen items are priced at $2.99. Another is National Maple Syrup Day on Dec. 17, when the establishment gives customers free short stacks. But no matter which location people visit, they will find consistency. The menus are identical, and appearances are similar. Contrary to what the name suggests, which is country decor, The Broken Yolk is a modern breakfast house. The walls have warm tones — soft yellow and brick red — and wood floors, and the majority of seats are cushioned booths. Upbeat music plays as televisions silently show sports.

New venue for ‘Heard it through the Grapevine’; Wine taste May 10 will benefit Rady Children’s Hospital Emergency Department To borrow from jazz great, Nina Simone, “it’s a new dawn, it’s a new day” and the ladies of the Del Mar Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary are “feeling good” about the changes they are making to the annual fundraising event titled, “Heard it Through the Grapevine.” The “Grapevine” is a fabulous food and wine taste party meticulously executed by an all volunteer group of women who have a special love for children and Rady Children’s Hospital. This year, the ever popular event has moved to the beautiful rolling hills of The Santaluz Club and is scheduled for Friday, May 10. Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Emergency Department at Rady’s, which is need of new equipment. “Heard it Through the Grapevine” had traditionally been held in Del Mar, most recently at the Del Mar Plaza roof deck. But a desire for more space and a great opportunity prompted this year’s event co-chairs, Melinda Tucker and Grace Evans, to consider looking just a few miles inland at a new location. “We want our guests to get the sense of a beautiful wine country and The Santaluz Club does just that with its natural beauty and

Grace Evans and Melinda Tucker, event co-chairs hilltop location,” said event co-chair Grace Evans. The Santaluz Club is the events venue for the expansive and private gated community located adjacent to Fairbanks Ranch and Rancho Santa Fe boasting panoramic views of the coast. It is sure to excite and delight new and returning guests of the “Grapevine.” The members of the Del

Mar Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary are now hard at work orchestrating the 52nd annual “Heard it Through the Grapevine” and are accepting donations for the silent and live auctions. Chef Brian Malarkey of Burlap in Del Mar has already gifted “Brunch and Drinks for 10 at Herringbone,” his newest restaurant in La Jolla. Corporate sponsors for the event are also being considered. Tickets will be $75 per guest (21 and up only) and will include wine, beer, food, music, silent and live auctions.

East Coast hair stylist brings unique skills to local salon BY KELLEY CARLSON Using his own cutting-edge technique, one of Rancho Santa Fe’s newest hair stylists has the ability to conquer complex curls. Licensed cosmetologist Daniel Rosati recently relocated from the East Coast and set up shop at Studio Felando, where he is now taming all types Daniel Rosati of manes, including cowlicky tresses of local residents. “I like to leave hair somewhat longer, and then cut it vertically and create shorter layers, and yet at the same time give it the illusion of a one-length look,” he said. Among Rosati’s dedicated customers are women who have gone through menopause, whose hair is affected by the hormonal changes. “Hair can change; it can lose melanin and elasticity, and may be thinner,” he said. “It might get less curly or more curly,” and some spots may have more ringlets or waves than others. “Women’s hair may not recede ... but (their curls do) all kinds of crazy things,” Rosati added. “Everyone is different, with different hair and different personalities and lifestyles,” he further explained. “This is what makes my work so interesting. And, of course, you have to take the client’s facial structure into consideration when you consider the cut.” Yet Rosati is up to the challenge.

“Most women like easy maintenance today, and I came up with a technique for a cut that requires no maintenance; it can just air dry,” he said. Rosati has had plenty of time to perfect his methods. He first entered the profession 28 years ago as a barber with his father, Charles, who is still cutting men’s hair at age 70 in New Jersey. Working in a Puerto Rican and Italian neighborhood, Rosati became accustomed to handling curly hair. He gained additional experience working with top stylists in New York, such as the renowned Frederic Fekkai and Stephen Knoll. “I got into the trade to do men’s hair, but eventually I turned into being a unisex stylist,” Rosati said. Several months ago, Rosati arrived on the West Coast, drawn to the quiet, laidback nature of Rancho Santa Fe. While he works in the Ranch’s Covenant and resides in Del Mar, he continues to own a salon in Princeton, N.J. Rosati said his clients often seek his advice on the most flattering style. “I like to get to know them, and I love helping women look beautiful,” he said. “If a client looks better, she will feel better.” And Rosati emphasizes that he also cuts men’s hair, preferring to use the scissorsover-comb technique rather than clippers. To see Rosati in action, go to and type “Daniel Rosati Haircutter” in the search box. He is based at Studio Felando, 16921 Via de Santa Fe in Rancho Santa Fe; For an appointment, call (858) 9008187.

Rita (Meghan Andrews) gets inspiration from her tutor Frank (Bjørn Johnson) in ‘Educating Rita’ at the North Coast Repertory Theatre. PHOTO/KEN JACQUES

May/December romance plays out in ‘Educating Rita’ Herbal and Nutritional Pharmacy Celebrating 15 years. Come see our new beautiful location in Carmel Valley.

Rubus ursinus Rubus or better known as blackberry helps the person who cannot make a viable connection with the will. A preparation of the flowering part or essence of the plant is vitalizing for persons who find it difficult to overcome inertia. The soul of this individual has many lofty visions and desires but is unable to translate these with decisive action. Often this results in perplexity about the gap between aims and accomplishments. In some situations a general feeling of sluggishness may interfere with achieving their goals. Blackberry flower essence helps awaken the will to direct self-actualization and catalyze breakthrough. Blackberry essence encourages exuberant manifestation in the world and helps with the overcoming procrastination and frustration a common pattern with new beginnings in our calendar year.

By the second act, Rita grows beyond Frank and does not need him as much.” Educating Rita has often been compared to “Pygmalion.” “It is similar,” Reynolds said. “Frank and Rita go through a huge arc in their relationship. It’s a very well written play that’s witty and charming with interesting characters who find unlimited potential in each other. That’s what that makes an audience root for them to succeed.”

BY DIANA SAENGER The story of a university lecturer who takes on a young woman to tutor becomes a journey of revelation for both of them in “Educating Rita,” which opens the North Coast Repertory Theatre’s 2013 season. Rosina Reynolds directs the play by Willy Russell, on stage through Feb. 3. Although the original script was revised by Russell in 2007 to make it more contemporary, Reynolds said she prefers the original script set in the 1980s. “For a woman of Rita’s class to cut loose from her surroundings was far more significant in the 1980s than it would be now. It was quite something at that time for the community she lived in and for girls her age.” Meghan Andrews portrays Rita and Bjørn Johnson plays her tutor. “Frank is a college professor in the south of England,” Reynolds said. “He loved literature and had great aspirations to be a teacher at one time, but he’s disillusioned with the system and his life, and the drink has become more familiar to him now. He drinks to forget the things he hasn’t managed to do.” Then Rita enters Frank’s life and inspires him. “She’s not a regular student, she’s a local who is plain speaking … a working-class girl,” Reynolds said. “She left school early and became a hairdresser. Her education was squandered by peer pressure to work, but she has a really curious mind and wants to learn. The dynamic of her coming into Frank’s life shakes him up considerably.” As revealed on stage and in the 1983 film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters, there are some dark moments in this story. “These two people have a dynamic influence on each other, but it’s definitely a MayDecember relationship, even though they have an energy and passion between them,” Reynolds said. “Like all relationships, the

BIODIVERSITY continued from page B1 about what’s being done at The Nat. And while the public probably thinks of the museum as just that – a repository for the specimens found around the region and a place to study them – it is also a place where scientists are called on to work on special projects, Wall explained in a recent interview. “We do a lot of work for hire,” he said. “We might get a special request from the Torrey Pines State Park or the county, the state or the fairgrounds, and even sometimes the cities.” Often, the agencies need survey work done to meet regulatory requirements so the museum contracts to do such jobs as having its paleontologists keep an eye out for fossils during grading or having its botanists look for rare and endangered plant species. Among the specimens found over the years in the San Dieguito River Valley, for example, were a mammoth, a ground sloth and camels which had lived in the region as much as 200,000 years ago, giving Wall fodder for his public speaking engagements.

The variety of what has been found and catalogued by the staff and volunteers since the museum was founded in 1874 can be seen in a cursory survey of its records for the Del Mar region by the museum’s staff done for this newspaper: • In the botany collection there are 2,094 specimens, including 28 sensitive species. • The herpetology collection includes 103 specimens from Del Mar-Carmel Valley, 52 from Rancho Santa Fe, 27 from Cardiff, 31 from Encinitas and 38 from Leucadia, reports Bradford Hollingsworth, curator of that collection. • There are 272 specimens of birds of 137 species from the area. • Forty-one species of algae and diatoms were found to have washed up on the beach during 24 hours of bioblits. • In the mammal collection, museum experts mentioned one specimen that stands out – a kit fox, collected in 1931 at Rancho Santa Fe on Douglas Fairbanks’ Ranch. Today it is found mostly in desert habitat. Scott Tremor, a mammalogist in the Department of Birds and Mammals, said

via email that “Frank Stephens, noted in his 1921 annotated list of the mammals of San Diego County, California, that it was reasonably certain that the kit fox formerly occurred in the region between the sea and the mountains in San Diego County and that a few probably still persisted there. The 1931 specimen proved his theory.” There are other tales of unusual finds, including one told by Philip Unitt, who has been curator of birds and mammals since 1988. “I think the most notable is the Newell’s Shearwater found alive at Del Mar on Aug. 1 2007 — the first of this Hawaiian seabird found on the continent of North America,” he wrote. A piece he wrote for the museum’s website details the rare find by Charles Swanson, an Escondido man who was working with a crew to stabilize the bluffs along the railroad tracks in Del Mar “when he noticed a bird dive-bombing a co-worker. Suspecting the bird was attracted by the light from the headlamp on his hardhat, Swanson suggested he turn the light off. He did so, but the bird continued to dive at

Love it or loathe it: the polarization of cilantro The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE L. KAUFMAN Cilantro (aka Chinese parsley or coriander) is probably the most-loved, while at the same time most-hated, herb on the planet. The cornerstone of Middle Eastern, Latin American and Southeast Asian cuisines, cilantro has caused culinary divisiveness among families and nations. Here’s the nitty-gritty and a little PR boost on this much-maligned Biblical botanical. Roots and Relatives The glossy, bright green scalloped leaves are called cilantro or Chinese parsley, and the seeds are referred to as coriander. Ancients from India, Egypt, Rome and


China have revered cilantro for thousands of years for its culinary charm and medicinal properties. A close cousin to carrots and parsley, cilantro is a hardy annual that originated in southern Europe, North Africa and western Asia, and happened to be one of the plants thriving in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Confessions of a Cilantrophobe If you are repulsed by the taste, smell or even being in the same room as cilantro, you are in good culinary company. Charter member of the anti-cilantro club was the late great Julia Child, who described the green herb as “having kind of a dead taste.” There is an “I Hate Cilantro” Facebook page and blog with a growing community of cilantro-despising followers. Scientific studies now propose that the cilantro aversion might be caused by a genetic predisposition. According to behavioral neuroscientist Charles J. Wysocki of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia,

Cilantro Pesto Ingredients • 2 cups fresh cilantro leaves • 1 garlic clove • 1/3 cup toasted pine nuts, cashews or walnuts • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil • 1⁄2 cup grated Parmesan cheese • Coarse salt and cracked black pepper to taste Method: In a food processor or blender add the cilantro, nuts, garlic, salt and pepper, and blend until it is minced. Slowly add a stream of oil until the mixture forms a smooth, creamy texture.

blend in the cheese. Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Toss with your favorite pasta, or use as a sandwich spread or topping for chicken or fish.

Place in a glass bowl and

Serves 4.

“Strong evidence suggests there’s a heritable component to the reactions that people have to cilantro, whether you’re a hater or a lover.” Cilantrophobes experience something akin to the taste of a mouthful of soap when eating the stuff. Funny enough, the similar aldehydes or fat molecules that

The rail improvement project will improve a critical part of the 351-mile Los Angeles-San Diego-San Luis Obispo (LOSSAN) rail corridor that serves as a vital link for passenger and freight movements in San Diego County. The project is also one part of a package of rail and transit improvements planned for the North Coast Corridor, which spans 27 miles and includes the six coastal cities of Oceanside, Carlsbad, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Del Mar, and San Diego.

Project Area

The project will begin its early planning and environmental scoping process in January 2013. The meeting will offer members of the public the opportunity to provide input on what should be studied under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

give cilantro its distinct smell and flavor, are also found in soaps and lotions. For some chemical reason, cilantro detesters perceive the soap aldehyde flavor rather than the sweet, pungent and aromatic cilantro aldehyde. For all you cilantro loathers out there, I’m sorry to say that the fragrant herb

has assimilated nicely into the American gustatory scene and is relished by millions. As for finding a suitable substitute, cilantro is irreplaceable, but you can try blending assorted herbs like chopped parsley, mint and oregano or basil as a half-baked alternative. Perks of Parsley Packed with essential oils (both leaves and seeds), minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron, folic acid and Vitamins A, K and C, cilantro has been found to put the skids on everything from digestive ailments and creaky joints to an aging brain and “bad” cholesterol levels. An anti-oxidant phytonutrient powerhouse, this mighty herb warrior boosts the immune system fending off various viruses, has diuretic properties found to control mild cases of diabetes, and with high dietary fiber acts like nature’s rotorooter for the intestines. Cilantro also detoxifies the body of heavy metals, wards off inflammation, maintains healthy vision,

bone mass and skin, and has been linked to protecting against oral cancers. Cilantro’s seedy counterpart, coriander, has been used as a homeopathic Viagra, deodorant, fungicide and pain reliever, to mention a few. Turn Over a New Leaf To get the greatest flavor oomph out of cilantro, chop this fragrant herb just before using as a garnish for soups, stirfries, chilis, Thai noodle dishes, bean salads, grilled wild caught salmon, seafood cocktails, whole fish presentations, veggie fried rice and salsas. Stuff it into fully-loaded baked potatoes, spring rolls and calzones. Use whole sprigs to jazz up savory cocktails like Bloody Marys, omelets and frittatas. Swap out curly parsley for cilantro in tabouli. Concoct a cilantrolime dressing to dial up chicken, or make a spicy pepper cilantro sauce to give a kick to lamb shanks.

Expert care for your Vintage Jaguar

BIODIVERSITY continued from page B12 him. The bird suddenly flew in front of him, landed, and squawked.� The story continues, with the bird coming back at Swanson’s co-worker, who ducked only to have the bird crash into a metal box nearby. “Thinking the bird was probably stunned or possibly hurt, Swanson picked it up carefully, finding it very docile, and placed it in a bed of iceplant along the cliff.� After a brief flight, the bird returned and Swanson left it in the iceplant when his shift ended. It was till there the next day, sitting by the metal box. At the end of his shift he took it home, eventually turning it over to Project Wildlife in Carlsbad. Many of the specimens in the museum’s collection have been contributed by the “citizen scientists� who play a key role in the effort to document the area’s biodiversity, Wall said. One particular approach they have used is having volunteers like Del Mar’s Karen Rich “adopt� grid squares – a 3-mile-by-3mile area – where they walk and document what they see. This approach has been used to create a Bird Atlas and a Plant Atlas. “We get baseline data to compare the past to use in the future,� Wall said, adding

that between the 2010 BioBlitz and the Plant Atlas the area has been well covered. “We found several things that we thought were locally gone and new things that unfortunately included many invasive species.� When the Plant Atlas project began in 2003, the museum had 527 specimens; now the collection numbers 1,567. When you visit The Nat, you only see a tiny part of the work being done there. There’s much more behind the scenes and, from the exhibits to the research efforts, the staff aims, according to the, “to interpret the natural world through research, education and exhibits; to promote understanding of the evolution and diversity of Southern California and the peninsula of Baja California; and to inspire in all a respect for nature and the environment.� For Wall, it’s a personal and professional mission that he says gives them an eye on species “living on the edge� and a greater understanding of the local ecosystem.

NAT continued from page B1 shade family — was in “the far reaches of her yard. There was only one plant and it never came back, she noted. The second, a member of the composite family – a kind of sunflower — was on an SDG&E service road in the Gonzales Canyon behind TPHS. It was just a small patch when Rich, who speculated the seeds might have come in during construction of the power line, found it. A year later when she returned, it had expanded. She said she was always thoughtful in taking the samples and keeping notes that would be translated into labels for the specimens. Noting everything from where she found the flower to what color and how tall it was, she also took GPS readings to get exact locations. The idea, she explained, was to gather all of the information necessary so that “someone in five, 10, 100 years could look at a specimen in the herbarium and be able to picture its surroundings.�

Underwater homeowners breathe a sigh of relief as Congress extends Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act • Certified Distressed Property Expert Toni Cieri helps homeowners facing foreclosure On Jan. 1, 2013, Congress passed an extension of the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act as part of tax bill H.R. 8, the bill addressing the “fiscal cliff.” Originally passed in 2007, this act exempts struggling homeowners from paying taxes on debt Toni Cieri forgiven in a short sale, foreclosure, or loan modification. The bill extends the act through Dec. 31, 2013, allowing underwater homeowners to once again pursue alternatives to foreclosure, such as short sales or loan modifications, without the fear of owing thousands and taxes. “For distressed homeowners, the extension of the Mortgage Debt Relief Act is amazing news. Before this act, homeowners would negotiate a loan modification or avoid foreclosure through a short sale only to find they owed an equally unmanageable tax debt afterwards,” says Toni Cieri, broker/

owner RE/MAX Distinctive in Del Mar As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), Cieri is specially trained to help homeowners who find themselves facing foreclosure. “I’m committed to helping homeowners who are struggling,” Cieri said. “Too often, homeowners facing foreclosure believe there is nothing they can do, but there is. “In fact, the options available to homeowners are better than ever. Lenders realize how much foreclosures cost, and increasingly favor short sales and other alternatives over letting a home go to foreclosure. Lenders are more willing than ever to work with homeowners,” said Cieri. Cieri has developed a free report with more information on the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act and the options available to homeowners facing foreclosure. This report, titled, “Attention: Distressed Homeowners! Congress Renews Critical Homeowner Relief Program,” is accessible from her website: For more information or assistance in stopping a foreclosure, contact Toni Cieri at 858-229-4911 or email@
