Torrey Pines, La Costa Canyon seek ways to attract more students in selection process BY KAREN BILLING Torrey Pines High School and La Costa Canyon are in the process of looking at bell schedules and programs to address some of the enrollment shifts the San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) has seen. In August, the board decided not to change its open enrollment process for its four high schools and instead to have the district focus its efforts on program enhancements and equity among the schools. At the district’s Oct. 1 meeting, Associate Superintendent Mike Grove said Torrey Pines and LCC have been gathering feedback from students, staff and parents and are close to what they would like to propose to the district. Grove said he expects the school board to hear proposals by early No-

vember, as the district would like any potential changes to be in place before the high school selection process. The high school selection window opens Jan. 4, 2016 and closes Feb. 1, 2016. The bell schedules have been cited as one of the main reasons why students opt to attend the SDUHSD academies — Canyon Crest and San Dieguito — over Torrey Pines and La Costa. The new bell schedules being studied give students the option to take more than six classes. Students at CCA and San Dieguito can take up to eight classes. Grove said an instructional-minutes analysis is required to make sure that the schools are meeting their yearly and daily minimums. See STUDENTS, page 22

Del Mar hikes transient occupancy tax for marketing hotels BY KRISTINA HOUCK Del Mar’s Tourism Business Improvement District may be dissolved, but marketing efforts for the city’s hotels will continue through a bump in transient occupancy tax. With Councilman Terry Sinnott absent, the City Council voted 4-0 at the Oct. 5 meeting to increase the tax from 11.5 to 12.5 percent. Paid by hotel visitors, the new tax rate is effective Oct. 6.

The 1 percent increase will replace the funding formerly provided by the Tourism Business Improvement District. In November 2008, Del Mar voters approved an increase in the transient occupancy tax rate from 10.5 percent to 13 percent. Rather than collect the full increase, however, the council allowed hotels in the city to create the district, which imposed a 1 percent room rate fee

on guests to promote Del Mar, resulting in a 12.5 percent assessment on hotel bills. Formed in 2010, the district was authorized for five years and automatically expired at the end of September. The council on Sept. 21 decided to discontinue the district and instead fund marketing efforts through an increase in the tax, which will be administered by the

Del Mar Village Association. With the vote, the council on Oct. 5 authorized City Manager Scott Huth to negotiate and execute an agreement with the Del Mar Village Association, contingent upon approval from the council liaisons. The Del Mar Village Association will continue the marketing efforts established by the district, which inSee TAX, page 22

Santa Fe Irrigation District proceeds with proposed water rate increase BY JOE TASH The Santa Fe Irrigation District is moving forward with a proposal to raise rates for its customers by an average of 9 percent annually over the next three years, beginning in February 2016. The district’s board of directors approved the rate

proposal on a 3-2 vote at its Oct. 1 meeting. Before the new rates take effect, however, a number of steps must occur: The board will review a final version of the draft rate proposal at its next meeting, on Oct. 15, and then schedule a public hearing, mail out a

written notice and receive public comment. The public hearing is tentatively set for Jan. 21, and if approved, the new rates would be in force on Feb. 1. The district has commissioned a study of its revenue requirements — called

a “cost of service” study — upon which the rate proposal is based. The proposal calls for a restructuring of how the district charges its roughly 22,000 customers who live in Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Fairbanks Ranch. One change is that cus-

Committee formed to design PHR park Councils to consider 50-year sand project for environmental approval

BY KAREN BILLING A new citizens committee has formed to help guide the planning and design of a proposed community park in Pacific Highlands Ranch. The park site is across from the Village and adjacent to Pacific Trails Middle School and Canyon Crest Academy. The committee hopes to provide final design recommendations to the Carmel Valley Recreation Council for approval by March 2016. “This is a great opportunity for people to get involved in shaping the future of their community,” said Manjeet Ranu, committee chair. “Getting feedback from residents will help us create a park that meets the needs of the Pacific Highlands Ranch area to the greatest extent possible.” The group is a subcommittee to the Carmel Valley Park and Recreation Council and is composed of four Pacific Highlands Ranch residents and one representative each from the recreation council, San Dieguito High School District and The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch. Monthly meetings are expected to take place over the next several months to ensure that residents and stakeholders have ample opportunity to engage in the process and share their feedback. The committee will make recommendations on various facets of the proposed park, including facilities, accessibility, design and usage. Members of the public are invited to comment on how the park can best serve the surrounding community. The committee will also conduct its own outreach to nearby residents to ensure those closest to the future park have an opportunity to provide input. “Our job is to ensure the park is compatible with surrounding areas and includes amenities that residents want,” said Ken Farinsky, Carmel Valley Park and Recreation Council representative and the committee’s vice chair. “We are excited to begin this process and look forward to gathering the community’s input.”

Burglary suspect arrested in Del Mar Heights BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A homeowner in Del Mar Heights chased off four burglars early on Wednesday, Oct. 7, and jotted down a license plate number that led police to one suspect — a 17-year-old boy. San Diego police Officer Frank Cali said four people broke into the home in the 2500 block of Lozana Road near Boquita Drive and took electronics before being run off by the resident shortly after 2:30 a.m. The homeowner relayed the getaway vehicle’s license plate number to police, who tracked it to an address on Mount Ada Street near Cannington Drive in the Clairemont neighborhood, Cali said. A 17-year-old boy was arrested at that address in connection with the burglary, but three other suspects remained at large late into the morning, Cali said.

BY JARED WHITLOCK The Encinitas and Solana Beach city councils next week will consider environmental approval of their joint 50-year sand project. Under the plan, offshore sand would regularly be spread on local beaches with the goal of protecting infrastructure and coastal access. Solana Beach City Manager Greg Wade said environmental impact documents don’t anticipate that the project will hurt marine life or surfing over the long term. But, he added, the documents do point out the possibility of beach nourishments affecting reefs off the city’s coast, which would be closely monitored. “Typically, a concern in a beach replenishment project is (that) sand will come off of the beach and cover the reef,” Wade said, noting this could affect marine life. As a safeguard, biologists would analyze the reefs before and after the project. If marine life such as lobsters are significantly affected, the Army Corps of Engineers would be required to construct an artificial reef to provide a replacement habitat, he stated. “We don’t believe construction of another reef would be necessary, but obviously, monitoring it is necessary,” Wade said. He said sand nourishments widen beaches for recreation and stave off coastal erosion. “It protects properties on the bluffs, as well as infrastructure,” he said. The environmental documents don’t show any significant impacts to surfing or marine life in Encinitas, according to Encinitas Public Works Director Glenn Pruim. He said the project would be monitored in Encinitas as well. Under the project, Solana Beach’s first replenishment would be 700,000 cubic yards


of sand, followed by 290,000 cubic yards of sand every decade during the project’s lifespan. Encinitas would receive 340,000 cubic yards of sand on the beach during the initial replenishment, followed by around 220,000 cubic yards of sand every five years. The amount of sand was reduced more than two years ago to satisfy the California Coastal Commission. A majority of commissioners voted against a larger plan out of concern that too much sand would overwhelm marine life and surfing reefs, but later signed off on the scaled-back project. Last spring, the Army Corps Civil Works Review Board voted to advance the project, making it much closer to being eligible for federal funding. It’s estimated the entire project would cost $164.9 million. The Army Corps under draft plans would fund about $87 million. The cities, the state and potentially other funding sources would pay for the rest. “At this point, we haven’t sat down with Solana Beach and the state to determine how those costs would be apportioned,” Pruim said in an email. “We will focus on those conversations once we’re past the environmental clearance phase of the project.” If the Encinitas and Solana Beach councils give environmental approval, the next step is engineering design, which could take up to two years. Wade said there are quite a few moving parts, but if everything lines up, the first replenishment would be in 2018 or 2019. The Encinitas council meeting starts at 6 p.m. Oct. 14 at City Hall, 505 S. Vulcan Ave. Solana Beach’s council meeting begins at 5 p.m. Oct. 14 at City Hall, 635 Coast Highway 101.

Stop sign to be considered on Del Mar Trails intersection, site of fatal accident BY KAREN BILLING On Thursday, Oct. 22, the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will consider a proposal for an all-way stop sign at the intersection of Mona Lisa Street and Del Mar Trails Road to improve pedestrian safety. Resident Anna Crotty has proposed the safety measure following a pedestrian fatality at the same intersection on the afternoon of April 30, 2015. Azita Hafezi-Saghafi, 57, was hit by an oncoming vehicle while crossing at the crosswalk in front of Del Mar Trails Park. The proposal is to add the all-way stop sign to the existing crosswalk. Anyone who would like to weigh in on this issue is encouraged to attend the meeting at 7 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Library.

Gelson’s Markets, Smart & Final submit bids to buy Haggen stores BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Gelson’s Markets and Smart & Final have submitted bids to purchase a total of 36 soonto-close Haggen grocery stores, including outlets in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties, Haggen officials announced on Oct. 5. According to Haggen, Gelson’s is looking to purchase eight California stores — in Carlsbad, Del Mar, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Beach, San Diego, Rancho Mirage, Santa Monica and Thousand Oaks. Smart & Final has offered to purchase 28 Haggen outlets — 27 in California and one in Las Vegas. The proposed sales are subject to approval by a bankruptcy court. Haggen officials said they are also requesting a hearing later this month to propose bidding procedures for other stores. The company, which took over numerous Albertsons and Vons stores earlier this year but quickly ran into financial troubles, announced last month it will close all of its California stores, reducing its overall operation to 37 stores in the Pacific Northwest. By acquiring stores that were divested by Albertsons and Safeway, the owner of Vons, Haggen expanded from 18 stores with 16 pharmacies and about 2,000 employees in the Pacific Northwest to 164 stores and 106 pharmacies employing more than 10,000 people in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada and Arizona. Many industry analysts at the time questioned whether the grocer had bit off more than it could chew with the sudden expansion.

CV student is youngest winner of state Young Playwrights Contest Emily Midgley, Bishop’s School Class of ’17, has always loved English and writing, which led her to write and submit her play, “The Acquittal,â€? to the California Young Playwrights Contest, held by the Playwrights Project. This budding wordsmith was chosen as a winner, making her the youngest playwright whose work was selected for full production. Her play, about hidden forces ensuring blind compliance in a futuristic society, will be shown in The Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre at The Old Globe between Jan. 22 and 31. Emily, of Carmel Valley, will be supported by dramatist Aleta Barthell, and her play will be directed by George YĂŠ. Emily’s play was one of 269 submitted to the contest in early June. Each play was evaluated by theater professionals, and top-scoring scripts were reviewed by a panel of judges, including representatives from the Playwright Project, South Emily Midgley Coast Repertory Theatre, La Jolla Playhouse and the theater department at San Diego State University. Of the 27 semifinalists selected, there were 14 finalists, seven between ages 15 and 18 and seven under 15. Four winners were ultimately chosen, two in the younger category and four in the older category. Contest judges wrote of Emily’s play, “Gripping story of a frightful future in which a system controls destiny and oppresses freedom of will;â€? “Entertaining and highly creative sci-fi drama with good development of character and suspense;â€? and “chillingly ironic.â€? Thanks to the support of her teachers and mentors, Emily has continued to evolve and succeed as she pursues her passions. This summer, she branched out and participated with several other Bishop’s students in the tutoring program at Nativity Prep Academy. “In her first year with our team, Emily distinguished herself as a dedicated, patient and supportive tutor. Each night Emily planned the next day’s work thoroughly, and during the sessions she used a wide range of sample texts and useful exercises to help students improve their writing,â€? said Robert Mulgrew, chair of Bishop’s English Department. “Her genuine interest in teaching writing, coupled with her gentle manner, made it easy for Emily to earn the trust and respect of her students, who accomplished a lot with her in the short space of a week.â€?

Science Night at Solana Vista engages adults, kids in enjoyable engineering BY KRISTINA HOUCK Although the school day had ended, students gathered Sept. 30 at Solana Vista for its first-ever Science Night. “We hoped for families to spend quality time together through an engaging evening of hands-on engineering that challenged them to solve a real-world problem,” said Solana Vista teacher Taylor Lynch. “The result far exceeded our expectations.” More than 100 people, including students, parents, grandparents and siblings, attended the event, where families were tasked with building a water tower with newspapers donated by the San Diego Union-Tribune, tape and water bottles. The event was such a success, Lynch said the school ran out of supplies. Families had to work together to build the structure. “The buzz and sheer excitement for the task was infectious,” Lynch said. “Many laughs, smiles and successes were shared and could be seen firsthand in our KIVA, school hallways, outdoor courtyard and surrounding areas.”

The event was organized by Lynch, a longtime Solana Vista teacher, who now serves as the school’s full-time STREAM teacher. New this year, the position is funded by the Solana Beach Schools Foundation. “The Solana Beach Foundation and community has partnered and invested in his role, and it’s great to see the return on investment for these families by way of fun learning events like Science Night,” said Solana Vista principal Joel Tapia. Founded in 1987, the Solana Beach Schools Foundation raises funds to support school programs and students in the Solana Beach School District. Since last year, the funds have helped schools offer Discovery Labs, which focus on science, technology, research, engineering, arts and math, or STREAM, and supplemental physical education. “Every student has the opportunity to visit the STREAM lab weekly,” said Kerri Merson, who serves as Solana Vista co-site president for the foundation, along with Kerily McEvoy. She noted that four part-

time instructors also support the Discovery Labs at the school. “Anything we can do to get parents and the community involved is important,” Merson said. “STREAM is a relatively new concept. A lot of parents don’t really know what it actually entails, so for them to come in and see what we’re doing at this school is a really great thing.” The foundation is raising funds to support STREAM at the district’s schools. It costs about $375 per student to cover the costs, Merson said. “I hope that students took an added excitement for engineering home to their families,” Lynch said. “I hope that students will ask their parents to tinker more, and this excitement will trickle into a lifelong love of exploring the world around them.” To donate to the campaign, visit www.solanabeachkids. org.

4th annual Bike 4 Mike set for Oct. 25 to fund research into ALS BY KRISTINA HOUCK Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. To fight for a cure for ALS, Team Godfather Charitable Foundation is hosting the fourth annual Bike 4 Mike Oct. 25 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The event is also held in memory of Michael Ramirez, a Carlsbad man who fought the disease. Known to many as “the godfather,” Ramirez died in April 2012 at the age of 56 from ALS. “Mike loved cycling,” said Greg Sacks, chairman of Team Godfather Charitable Foundation. “He would have loved every one of these events. He would have had more fun than anybody there.” ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure. It attacks the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord responsible for controlling voluntary muscles. There is no cure. According to the ALS Association, about 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. It is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans may be living with ALS at any given time, approximately 300 in San Diego County alone. Ramirez was diagnosed with ALS in September of 2009. A graduate of Helix High School and later the University of San Diego, Ramirez was a commercial banker in local and national markets for 35 years. He served on multiple foundation and nonprofit boards, including Mercy Hospital Foundation. Ramirez was also very active, having played baseball, basketball and football in high school and football in college. After college, he completed long-distance cycling races, marathons and triathlons. He was an avid golfer and practiced karate and yoga. “Mike was a wonderful guy,” said Sacks, a longtime friend of Ramirez. “He was like everybody who’s diagnosed with ALS. They are just larger-than-life people.” Not long after being diagnosed, Ramirez directed his energy toward raising awareness and funds to fight the disease. In May 2010, he and his wife, Maureen, along with friends, founded Team Godfather Charitable Foundation. The Carlsbad-based foundation raises money for medical research and supports the ALS Therapy Development Institute, the world’s first and largest nonprofit biotech focused 100 percent on ALS research. Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the institute has tested more potential treatments for ALS than any other research lab, thanks to support from fundraisers like Bike 4 Mike. “We really rely on our network of ALS friends and families that, like Team Godfather, support our efforts so that we can spend the most money possible toward research,” said Gretchen Simoneaux, a board member of the foundation and employee of the institute.

‘That poor tree was just like me,’ says breast cancer survivor of stricken Torrey pine BY KRISTINA HOUCK Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so is art. Everyone interprets art through their own eyes. And sometimes, as with Del Mar’s Tara Diamond, an interpretation can leave a lasting impression. “That’s what art is about,” Diamond said. With October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Diamond recently shared her story, from battling breast cancer to finding inspiration in art. Diamond discovered a tumor in 2006, and after years of alternative treatments, she was later diagnosed with breast cancer last year. After having a mastectomy, Diamond completed her yearlong chemotherapy treatments over the summer. Her doctor has since confirmed that she is cured. “I’m just happy,” Diamond said with a big smile. “You always wonder if you’re doing the right thing. It’s hard to know,” she added. “But I think that if you’re going through breast cancer or any kind of cancer, an integrative approach is the healthiest thing anybody can do. I couldn’t imagine the medical therapies without the alternative treatments to manage the side effects.” This past year has been one of the hardest for Diamond. While undergoing chemotherapy, she struggled with low self-esteem and depression. But one day, while driving down Highway 101, she spotted a Torrey pine. The beetle-damaged tree had been chopped down. Its branches and leaves were gone. All that was left was an oddly-shaped stump. “That poor tree was just like me,” remembered Diamond, who took photos on top of the tree. “I felt like I understood the tree and it understood me. Somebody saved the tree and somebody saved me.” Del Mar designer David Arnold helped

Tara Diamond’s letter to David Arnold

Tara Diamond was touched and inspired by a chopped-down Torrey pine. Courtesy photos save the stump. He, too, spotted the tree while driving down Highway 101. He asked the crew cutting the tree to stop, giving him time to contact the city and receive support to turn the stump into art. This took place in January. Since then, woodworking artist Tim Richards has transformed the dead Torrey pine into a lively piece of public art at the bluffs along Camino del Mar. The stump is now “Sunset Seat,” a wooden bench where people can sit and look at the scenic surroundings. Attached is a carved red-tailed hawk — the official bird of Torrey Pines Reserve. The art piece was unveiled in April. “It’s a beautiful statement,” Diamond said. “It evolved into something that is so interactive for people. It’s such an experience creator.” Diamond knows a thing or two about creativity. After all, she is also an artist. Originally from North Carolina, Diamond completed a master’s degree in speech See TREE, page 22

Dear David, I imagine I felt just like you when you saw the Torrey Pine being cut down to its bare beginnings this past winter. There it was, this raw structure of support merely echoing its mighty effort to reach the sky for so many years. Laying it to rest would have been a sad waste of the precious memories anchored within its roots, memories that now pass through the minds and hearts of people on the winds of change. Thank you for stopping them from destroying it. Tara Diamond sitting atop the Torrey pine. When I first saw the remains of that day, I said to myself ... “just like me.” I was startled by how much the tree was me, how much it reflected how I felt after each treatment for breast cancer I endured this past year. One limb, one branch, one needle after another, falling to the ground of what once supported it, what once gave it its might, its beauty, its honor, its strength, now falling away, bearing what’s beneath it all, bearing what’s left. That’s what grabbed my attention ... the tree standing there, proud of what’s left of it. I don’t know that I ever saw the tree as it was, separate from the surroundings it defined. It wasn’t until it has been cut, scraped, shaved, and carved up that I noticed the beauty of what was supporting it. Perhaps this is happening for me too. I had to have a photo of it, so I walked over one Sunday morning, climbed it, and a nice couple took photos of me with my iPhone. I was quite lucky they came by since no one was out on such a cool morning. My hair had just started growing back on New Year’s Day and this was my first shot of it, my coming out photo ... a new beginning of what’s left from the balding shock of such an ordeal. For that short while, it was the tree and me. I felt like I belonged up there. I didn’t know there were plans for it at the time ... plans similar to mine. I just thought its pure essence had been spared. I thought how brave of it to bare its soul to a world passing by day after day. If nothing else, it would have been a monument to longevity and history, but you championed a reconstruction, and now we see it becoming something else, something new. Now, it’s quite the monument to what we can find inside of what’s left of us if we just look. Thank you for your knowing in an instant that this life had to be spared, that you had to stop the waste of timeless memories it held for us. Thank you for letting everyone else share in its beauty, its triumph. Thank you for letting me share mine too. Rarely do we know what effect our art has on others. I thought you might like to know. Sincerely, Tara Diamond

Students and volunteers build learning garden at Pacific Trails Middle School Pacific Trails Middle School in Carmel Valley hosted the San Diego Green Building Council (SDGBC) and Balfour Beatty Construction fourth annual Green Apple Day of Service on Sept. 26. More than 40 volunteers composed of students, parents, teachers, family members, Balfour Beatty Construction and SDGBC employees, as well as representatives from supporting sponsors and vendors, spent a full day constructing four planter boxes, size 20 feet by 4 feet, filled with species of plants mentioned in the works of William Shakespeare. “Any time you bring together different resources from the community to support students, it speaks volumes to the cause that we all collectively support — greener schools designed with healthy, safe, cost-effective and productive learning spaces,” said Mary Anne Nuskin, principal of Pacific The garden is filled with species of plants mentioned in the works of William Shakespeare. Courtesy photo Trails. “When I step back and think about the transformation of the space, how many people were involved with planning and constructing it, and the fact that this beautiful area was created in a single day, it’s pretty amazing. The garden helps us achieve our vision of creating a space where kids can connect with the material they are being taught in their classrooms. It’s going to enhance the learning experience of students for years to come.”

The Shakespeare theme for the garden stemmed from members of the school’s Garden Club, led by Gregg Hunt, student adviser, English and social studies teacher. All six members of the 2015 Garden Club came out to help build the project. The seventh-graders attend club meetings on Wednesdays during lunch, and one of their first projects will be to create a planting schedule that will eventually include edible plants. The overall vision for the space is to create an environment where students can make positive connections to what they are learning in the classroom. In addition to the garden, a work shed was installed that consists of a re-purposed structure originally used during construction of the school. “Before the first nail was hammered on this 74,200-square-foot campus, we created a sample building mock-up using materials and colors of the actual school,” said Grace Chan, senior project manager for Balfour Beatty Construction. “This mini-school structure not only helped everyone on the project team to visualize the end product, it inspired us on a daily basis. Now, that same structure will house the tools the student gardeners will use ... — it’s one of the most creative ways we’ve repurposed old building materials, and now it stands to commemorate the

school’s beginnings.” The Green Apple Day of Service is an initiative from the Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council. This annual day of service takes place on the same day at different schools around the world. This year’s event also served to kick off the San Diego Green Building Council’s yearlong Green Schools Challenge, a friendly competition where schools will develop a sustainable “green” or healthy project and complete that throughout the school year and then document the results for a chance to be recognized and win a variety of prizes. Balfour Beatty Construction led the efforts to recruit volunteers, obtain sponsors and in-kind donations, and manage the improvement projects. Sponsors that helped to make the 2015 Green Apple Day of Service a success include: A&S Flooring, Abbott Engineering, Advance Plumbing, American Fence Company, Inc., Balfour Beatty Construction, Brady Company, Commercial Furnishings, Inc., Consulting & Inspection Services, Einstein Bagels, Glumac, Gould Electric, Groundlevel, International Iron, Johnson, Finch & McClure, New Dimension Masonry, Pacific Coast Glazing, Inc., Pecoraro, Inc., PSSI, Rocky Coast Builders, SCOR Industries, Subway, Sunbelt, W R Robbins, and Western Rim Constructors.

With forgiveness foremost, Khamisa Foundation aims to steer youth from violence BY KRISTINA HOUCK After the murder of his son, Azim Khamisa chose forgiveness. And with that, tragedy turned into triumph through the creation of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation. Twenty years later, the nonprofit, which aims to stop youth violence, marked a major milestone with its 20th anniversary gala Oct. 3 at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club (CSJ Capital served as site sponsor for the event). “Looking back over the last 20 years, I’m just amazed at all that has been manifested from the choice I made,” Khamisa said. “I made a choice to forgive.” Formed by Khamisa just nine months after his son’s death, the Tariq Khamisa Foundation is dedicated to stopping the cycle of youth violence, starting with the kids themselves. The foundation offers violence-impact assemblies and a violence-reduction class curriculum. It also offers community-service events, mentorship programs and workshops. “We are teaching the principles of empathy, compassion and forgiveness,” Khamisa said. When Khamisa speaks to students, the gunman’s grandfather, Ples Felix Jr., is often at his side. In a spirit of forgiveness, Khamisa reached out to Felix to help form the foundation. Felix now sits on the board. “I can’t bring my son back from the dead. He can’t get his grandson out of prison. But the one thing we can do is make sure that no other young soul in our community ends up dead or ends up in prison,” Khamisa said. “He was very quick to take my hand of forgiveness. We’re still together, 20 years later.” In 1995, Khamisa’s 20-year-old son, Tariq, a San Diego State University sophomore, was shot and killed while delivering pizza. It was part of a gang initiation, called “Jacking the Pizza Man,” and 14-year-old Tony Hicks, the one being initiated, fired the fatal bullet. The following year, Hicks became the first child in California under the age of 16 to be convicted as an adult. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. Now 35, Hicks is working on his associate degree in child psychology, and he wrote the forward to Khamisa’s last book. He’s also been promised a job with the foundation once he is paroled in 2018. “He’s totally shifted now. We saved him,” Khamisa said. “Think about how many more kids he will save when he joins us.” In two decades, Tariq Khamisa Foundation has reached 500,000 youths through its programs and millions of people through its story. Khamisa has given more than 1,000 school presentations and more than 500 keynote addresses across the world. He has also written four books. With violence still prevalent, Khamisa hopes to bring the foundation’s programs to even more youth. “Sometimes tragedies destroy you, sometimes they make you a better person,” Khamisa said. “It’s based on the choice you make.” For more about Tariq Khamisa Foundation, visit www.tkf.org.

Disabled men buoyant after experience with Surfing Madonna Oceans Project BY JARED WHITLOCK The ocean was just as Bob Wineman remembered it. The smell. The sand. The waves. Sept. 22 marked the first time Wineman had gone into the ocean in 50 years, a feat made possible by volunteers and the nonprofit Surfing Madonna Oceans Project. Wineman has been a quadriplegic since age 16, when he was in a car accident after returning from a backpacking trip. Before that, he was an avid surfer, frequently hitting spots across Southern California, including Swami’s Beach.

Letters to the editor/Opinion 21-gun salute to Del Mar racetrack employee It is axiomatic that there are unsung heroes in every endeavor, and I have a long-overdue one right here in Del Mar to sing about. About a man whose multi-faceted work on behalf of the Del Mar racetrack began 35 years ago, the last eight of which have been as director of media. I could write a long and detailed account of his above-and-beyonds that I personally know about, but suffice it to say that they go far beyond his job description. If it’s in the best interest of the Del Mar racetrack, it’s done. He avoids recognition and publicity for himself like a cat avoids a bath, and I know he’ll strongly object to what I’m doing here. But the time has come to let this cat out of the bag. His name is Mac McBride. As a 60-year devotee of and contributor to the Del Mar racetrack and the entire racing industry, I’m taking this opportunity to give him the 21-gun salute he deserves. Jim Donovan, Del Mar

Kaaboo signals that Del Mar still has a pulse I loved hearing the thumps, chords and cheers of Kaaboo from my home in Del Mar! I took walks all that weekend to find the spots where the sound was clearest. Dear old Del Mar has managed to squeeze out the train station, failed to support dynamic commercial development, declines to build housing that would appeal to the young, and over the years has atrophied to the point that it has lost its only gas station, drug store, and grocery store. All vitality seems to be gravitating to the communities north of us. At least the strong beats of Kaaboo are a sign that Del Mar still has a pulse. Susan Hurd Magee, Del Mar

With careful transit and road planning, a future for all of us We all want to keep this region a wonderful place to live. We want to protect our environment. We want our local economy to thrive. We want everyone to have the chance to live in healthy, vibrant communities. But big change is coming. There are 3.2 million people in the region now — we expect another million in the next 35 years. With those new people will come another half a million jobs and 300,000 homes. Accommodating that growth while still maintaining our quality of life is going to take careful planning. That is what the San Diego Association of Governments has been doing over the last three years. The result is San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan. San Diego Forward — a $204 billion vision created with the help of more than two years of public and stakeholder input — lays out a future where we will accommodate growth in our existing communities, preserve our open space, and create active, vibrant communities connected by a variety of transportation choices. In coastal North County, that means adding Managed Lanes (for carpools and public transportation) along the length of Interstate 5 — encouraging ridesharing and transit services. Double-tracking the coastal rail corridor and increasing the frequency and capacity of the Coaster commuter rail line. It also means adding safe, off-street bikeways up and down the coast, as well as from coastal cities inland, including the Coastal Rail Trail along the Sprinter line. In Oceanside, the Regional Plan will finally complete the connectors (for general purpose lanes and Managed Lanes) between I-5 and State Route 78. It also will add Managed Lane connectors on the eastern end of SR 78 at Interstate 15. And, in between, the Plan calls for adding Managed Lanes to SR 78, helping to relieve some of the region’s most frustrating traffic snarls. Adding transportation choice has its benefits. Economic analysis of San Diego Forward shows that for every dollar invested in the Plan, we will realize almost $2 in economic benefit. An efficient system will support an average of 53,000 more jobs a year, and it will result in an average annual increase of $13.4 billion in gross regional product. Creating choice also allows for more trips to occur outside of a solo vehicle, benefiting the environment. The transportation network in the Regional Plan will reduce greenhouse gas emissions even further than targets set for our region by the California Air Resources Board — reducing per capita greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent by 2020 and 21 percent by 2035. In the end, we all have the same goals for the region’s future. And we all have a role to play in getting us there. Let’s work together to keep San Diego moving forward.

Education Matters: Pope Francis, Bernie Sanders, and educational inequity BY MARSHA SUTTON If you liked Pope Francis’s message last week, you’ve got to love Bernie Sanders. When the pope spoke of the heartbreaking misery of those living in poverty, he was not just talking about Third World countries. The income inequality in this country is a fine example of the social injustice the pope rightly denounces. Is this not precisely the message Marsha Sutton presidential candidate Bernie Sanders delivers? Why are we not hearing this from other candidates? Again and again, Sanders stays on point, condemning the growing divide between the rich and poor. Everything wrong in education starts with this. Experts have worked tirelessly to boost the achievement of minority and low-income students. Methods and incentives have been in place for years, only to reveal that little progress has been made. The latest test scores show once again that the achievement gap is alive and well. If educators focused 100 percent of their time and energy on low-income students, they still couldn’t overcome the effects of growing up poor, hungry and denied opportunities for success that middle- and upper-middle-class children receive. From lack of breakfast to lack of preschool, poor children lose out on the basic building blocks for future success. Shelley Petersen, assistant superintendent of instructional services for the Del Mar Union School District, was recently quoted discussing Del Mar’s test scores, saying the exceptional outcomes had nothing to do with demographics and everything to do with skilled teachers. She implied that Del Mar’s teachers could make brilliant students out of the poorest children. From the Sept. 24 story in this newspaper, Petersen said, “I absolutely refuse to dismiss our test scores due to our demographics. I would put our teachers and the work we do in any district anywhere and we would see marked results.” As I wrote in my last column, the way to get good test scores is to first start with smart kids. I stand by that statement. Sure, districts can certainly screw things up by not providing excellent professional development or by not hiring and training motivated, energized teachers. Del Mar has done both. But unless districts completely drop the ball, districts serving high-income communities absolutely have a leg up on those that don’t. Some statistics The state’s new Smarter Balanced tests, first given last spring, were administered to all public school students in grades 3-8 and grade 11. Del Mar, an elementary school district serving kindergarten through sixth-grade students, tested students in grades 3-6, while the San Diego Unified School District, the closest large urban school district, serves students in grades See EDUCATION, page 19

To your health: Beyond the headlines: Individualizing breast cancer care becoming new gold standard BY PAUL GOLDFARB, M.D. This summer, an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) challenged standard treatment for “Stage 0” breast cancer, or ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Most often, this is a nonaggressive precursor to breast cancer, though it can become invasive. For many years, DCIS has been treated with surgery. However, the JAMA study found that survival rates for women with DCIS were the same whether they had surgery or not. While the temptation may be to look at these results and conclude that women with DCIS should never get surgery, that may be overreaching. The study also showed that African American women, and women diagnosed before age 35, had a much higher risk of death stemming from DCIS — more than double. Further research may show that some patient subgroups benefit from surgery. These findings are good news, because they highlight an emerging understanding of cancer. Breast cancer, or any cancer, is not a single, monolithic condition. Tumors differ from patient to patient. Some tumors are more aggressive, some respond to different therapies. Research like the JAMA study reveals that one-size-fits-all approaches need to be revised. Treatments should be individualized, based on patients’ unique set of risk factors. Figuring out mammograms The recent JAMA article is not the first time a conventional approach to breast can-


cer has been challenged. In 2009, the United States Preventive Services Task Force concluded that women younger than 50 don’t need regular screening mammograms. This conflicted with “gold standard” mammography guidelines supported by the American Cancer Society, the American College of Surgeons, and others, which suggest women should have a baseline mammogram at age 40, followed by annual screening mammograms. The choice of when to get screening mammograms should be made with a view toward individual risk, which can hinge on factors such as personal and family history, genetics, ethnicity, breast density, general health and other factors. While mammograms are a good diagnostic tool, they are also flawed. They can miss small tumors, generate false positives or identify a low-risk condition, such as DCIS. Fortunately, the science of detecting cancer is improving. New screening tools, such as tomosynthesis, provide higher resolution without increasing radiation. Tomosynthesis software is used with digital mammography equipment to convert images into a stack of very thin layers, creating a 3-D reconstruction of the breast. This technology can be particularly helpful for women with dense breasts. Biopsies are also improving, giving patients and clinicians a clearer picture of risk. Better risk assessment and treatment As researchers find new associations between genetic mutations and breast cancer,

Paul Goldfarb M.D.

care should improve. Discovering mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes (which are genes that suppress tumors in humans) was revolutionary, helping to identify women who are at much greater risk, and can therefore benefit from increased monitoring or intervention. Newer genomic tests may be less illuminating. BRCA mutations have a strong association with breast and ovarian cancer, while other mutations often have a weaker link. Sometimes, breast cancer mutations are only discovered after the patient is diagnosed. Still, these can be helpful for family members, for example, better identifying a daughter’s risk.

There are quite a few new therapies being developed, such as immunotherapies, which prime the immune system to attack cancer. There are also emerging treatments designed to convert breast cancer from an acute illness to a chronic condition. The cancer would not be eliminated, but the growth could be arrested and women could go on to live a normal life. Some companies are working on liquid biopsies that use either blood or urine to detect cancer and monitor treatment. Once again, this would help to understand each patient’s individual risk and guide treatment accordingly. The big picture Much can be done to help women through this difficult process. The O’Toole Breast Care Center at Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego is working on a rapid response approach, in which women who have a positive screening mammogram can quickly get a biopsy appointment. Reducing wait times can reduce associated stress. It’s also important to take a hard look at life after cancer. So many women survive breast cancer and it’s important that they live well. There are many approaches that can address hormonal problems, bone density and sexual issues. Breast cancer survivors should know that many services are available to help them as they navigate life after cancer. For example, Scripps offers several different types of breast cancer support groups in locations all across San Diego County, including one designed for young women and another at the Scripps Well Being Center in Chula Vista for Spanish speakers. Survivors can also stay connected with resources at annual Scripps Cancer Survivors Day events every June. And cancer navigators and social workers at Scripps can provide additional support.

K-12. Only 5.1 percent of DMUSD students tested were classified as economically disadvantaged. This is indisputably an affluent community. To compare, in San Diego Unified, 57 percent tested were classified as economically disadvantaged. If it’s simply a matter of better teachers, then the disparity between economically advantaged and disadvantaged kids should be much less in Del Mar. But that is not what we see. DMUSD’s test results show glaring differences in achievement based on socio-economics, even with good teachers and stellar training. In English/language arts/literacy, for the 135 DMUSD low-income students tested, 57 percent met or exceeded standards. For the 2,422 other students who tested, 89 percent met or exceeded standards. The difference is 32 points. In math, the same 135 DMUSD low-income students were tested, and 53 percent met or exceeded standards. Of the 2,488 non-economically disadvantaged students tested, 86 percent met or exceeded standards. The difference is 33 points. In San Diego Unified, for English/language arts/literacy, 38 percent of low-income students met or exceeded standards. Of those students not economically disadvantaged who tested, 71 percent met or exceeded standards. The difference is 33 points. In math at SD Unified, 27 percent of low-income students met or exceeded standards. Of the others who tested, 62 percent met or exceeded standards. The difference is 35 points. The disparity between the two groups of students, 32 to 35 points, is essentially the same for both districts. If it were all about good teaching, Del Mar’s gap would be less. Overall test scores for both low-income and non-low-income students in Del Mar are higher than San Diego Unified, to be sure. But a district primarily serving poor students like SD Unified will naturally average lower overall achievement numbers than one with significantly fewer low-income kids. Petersen makes a point, though. Good teachers are certainly a key ingredient to student success. Sadly, it’s well-

documented that poor kids living in low-income communities generally don’t get good teachers. So agrees Bernie Sanders. “We need to take a hard look at our education system,” he states. “Black students attend schools with higher concentrations of first-year teachers, compared with white students. Black students were more than three times as likely to attend schools where fewer than 60 percent of teachers meet all state certification and licensure requirements.” The homeless Add to all this the fact that homelessness is on the rise. According to a Washington Post report, “The number of homeless children in public schools has doubled since before the recession, reaching a record national total of 1.36 million in the 2013-2014 school year, according to new federal data.” This is an 8 percent increase over the prior year and “offers a glimpse of the growing challenges that public schools face nationwide as they seek to educate an increasing number of low-income children.” There’s more: “The impact is profound on public schools which struggle to try to address the needs of homeless children. Teachers often find themselves working not only to help children learn but also to clothe them, keep them clean and counsel them through problems — including stress and trauma — that interfere with classroom progress.” Is it fair to blame teachers when low-income students don’t perform as well academically as kids who grew up in stable homes with enough to eat, attended preschool, traveled, and were given innumerable opportunities to explore their environment and exercise their curiosity and creativity? How do we tell teachers that closing the achievement gap is their responsibility, when it’s next to impossible to counter the debilitating effects that poverty has on the very young? Even the best teaching can’t possibly overcome the crippling condition of growing up poor. Teachers have for years bemoaned this unrealistic expectation placed on them. Sanders supports quality universal child care and prekindergarten programs, which are an absolute necessity if

we are to begin to level the playing field for all children in America. “Every psychologist understands that the most formative years for a human being is from the ages 0-4,” states Sanders. “We have got to make sure every family in America has the opportunity to send their kids to a high quality child care and pre-K program.” About income inequality, Sanders says, “There is something profoundly wrong when the top one-tenth of 1 percent owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent.” He calls this “economic violence,” noting that America has “the highest childhood poverty rate of any developed country on earth.” Educational inequity The link between poverty and chronic academic underachievement is undeniable and has far-reaching and longlasting effects on the workforce, crime, racism and America’s place in the world. Which brings me back to Bernie Sanders and the pope. Is it socialism to say that we must care for our poor? Is it socialism to say that vast amounts of money in politics are warping our democratic system? Is it socialism to say that the gap between the wealthy and everyone else has left far too many children behind? I’m not suggesting support for Sanders — just his message. If the pope resonated with you (and who could not be moved by his words of compassion?), then connect the dots and recognize how poverty and the disparity in wealth doom poor children to insurmountable academic struggles. Solutions cannot be found using foolish incentives and federal funding bribery. Nor can we browbeat teachers into pretending the educational inequities that stem from entrenched societal ills don’t exist. Only when the ruinous effects of poverty on our children are recognized and addressed can we begin to close the so-called “achievement gap” — which should by all rights be called the money gap. Until then, eliminating that achievement gap will remain unattainable, no matter how skilled the teacher. — Marsha Sutton can be reached at suttonmarsha@gmail. com.



New coach setting Pacific Trails Middle School volleyball team up for success BY KAREN BILLING No net? No gym? No problem. Coach Maureen Reilly has done whatever she can to serve up the new Pacific Trails Middle School’s first ever volleyball team. The school gym is not anticipated to be complete until Nov. 30, and there were no sunken poles or even a net on campus. But there was a sand volleyball court at neighboring Canyon Crest Academy and 12 girls who were willing to get their feet dirty and start playing. “They’re really good sports and they’re really motivated,” said Reilly of the Pacific Trails team. The school just completed voting on their new mascot—the Pacific Trails Wolves—and the girls are very excited about the silver team color of their new uniforms. Pacific Trails’ first game in the Big 8 Middle School Sports League run by the Boys & Girls Club of San Dieguito is scheduled for the end of the month. There will be a lot of away games in Carmel Valley, Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe for this inaugural season. Pacific Trails has also formed flag football and cross country teams for this first year. Reilly, a mother of five children ranging in ages from three to 10, is a former teacher who taught at an international school in Switzerland for eight years. While there, she also coached the middle school and high school varsity volleyball and basketball teams for five years before moving back to the US. The family left Switzerland for Boston in 2012 and moved to San Diego in 2013 because of her husband’s work. Reilly grew up in Tampa, Florida and her first introduction to volleyball was at the same time as her current players, as a middle schooler. She was a Florida High School All Star and went on to play volleyball at Emory University. She later got her masters in education from the University of Michigan. In addition to her coaching duties, she is also working as a substitute teacher in North County schools, managing a “Rubik’s Cube of schedules” for her five children, work and volleyball practices three times a week. “I love to coach. I’m so excited that I get to do it again,” Reilly said. “For me it’s really

Coach Maureen Reilly with her team. Courtesy photo nice to see kids outside of the classroom. I love the opportunity for them to be competitive and exercise, and especially with girls, it’s an opportunity to develop self-confidence and help with their self-esteem issues.” While youth club volleyball is big in San Diego, Reilly is excited that many of her players are new to the sport and she is happy to provide them with their first introduction to it. To tap into that popular club volleyball market, Reilly has also started Dunk Set Sports, offering private youth coaching for youth volleyball, basketball and personal training. “I have a passion for finding creative ways to get kids moving as well as for helping athletes push past their boundaries,” Reilly said.

Carmel Valley native wins gold medal at 2015 World Rowing Championships Kerry Simmonds, a 2007 graduate of Torrey Pines High School, won a gold medal in rowing as part of the USA Women’s Eight (eight rowers plus coxswain) team at the recent World Championships in Lac d’Aiguebelette, France. This is Simmonds’ third World Championship medal, and second gold medal. She was a member of the 2013 gold-medal-winning USA Women’s Eight team and then won a silver medal in the 2014 Women’s Pair event (two rowers, without coxswain). Simmonds’ goal is to make the team in one of the boats to represent the United States at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The USA women’s rowing team had a particularly strong showing at this year’s World Championships, winning gold medals in three events (Women’s Eight, Women’s Four, Women’s Quadruple Sculls) and bronze in the Women’s Pair. The first-place finish in the Quadruple Sculls was the first World Championship victory for the USA in that event. The USA continued its dominance in the Women’s Eight race, winning gold for the 10th straight year — a streak that rivals some of the great dynasties in team sports history. Simmonds began her athletic career playing youth soccer with the Del Mar Sharks. She played basketball and ran cross country and track at Torrey Pines. She began rowing as a walk-on athlete at the University of Washington, where she later earned a full athletic scholarship and was named team captain. Since graduating from UW in 2011 with a degree in biology, she has continued her rowing career by training full time with the USA national team, based in Princeton, N.J.

judgment. Everyone is on the same level.” Robert Nichols, chairman and founder of the nonprofit, said helping the two men get in the water was “much more fun than surfing a perfect day.” “Just the stoke on everyone’s face makes it worth it,” Nichols said. The Surfing Madonna nonprofit is named after the famed “Surfing Madonna” mosaic, which hangs on the Leucadia Pizzeria wall facing Encinitas Boulevard and Coast Highway 101. The nonprofit funds a number of ocean-related causes; it’s supported by proceeds from the annual Surfing Madonna 5K/10K and other nonprofit ventures. Nichols said the nonprofit plans to buy more floating beach wheelchairs. “I want these people to know they have a support team behind them if they ever want to get in the water,” said Nichols. “The water — it’s a healer.” Friends and family cheered the two men on. Donna Orr, Wineman’s sister, said it’s just like the old days. “We were a beach family,” she said, adding, “I’m thrilled he’s in the ocean again.”

A Celebration of Philanthrophy was hosted Sept. 29 by the Coastal Community Foundation to recognize its donors, volunteers, and community partners. Coastal Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization of North San Diego County since 1987, has more than 50 charitable funds that enable residents who live here to give here. This can be accomplished by establishing a donor-advised fund or by contributing to existing funds that support education, scholarships or women’s issues. Celebration Board President Alice Jacobson thanked guests, saying, “We are grateful for your investment in our community through your donations and volunteer time.” Annie Burchard from Welcome Home Ministries shared how its F.A.I.R. Dorm program helps women transition from jail. This program has received national recognition for reducing recidivism from 60 percent to less than 10 percent. Board member Ed Blodgett spoke of the donor-advised fund he and wife Betsy established before retirement to continue their diverse philanthropic giving. Among the highlighted grants at the event were: Trauma Intervention Project, which provides volunteer emergency support during accidents and crisis; Casa de Amistad, which provides after-school and summer programs for Hispanic children in Solana Beach; and the EdVenture grants, which bring art and science into North County classrooms. Gold sponsors of the event were the Leichtag Foundation, Mike and Adele Lapadula, the John and Mary Rainsford Charitable Foundation and California West Communities. Silver sponsors were Debbie Carpenter of P.S. Platinum Properties, Bill Cox, Shea Homes, Seaside Courier, Bobbie Hoder and the Edward and Betsy Blodgett Family Foundation. Community sponsors were P-O-L-O B-A-Y and the board of directors of Coastal Community Foundation. Visit www.coastalfoundation.org or call 760-942-9245.

On the program side, Grove said each site has established a committee to brainstorm program options that might attract incoming students. Some initial ideas are developing curricular pathways for subjects such as computer science and engineering, advance manufacturing, green building, bio-medical and bio-tech engineering. These career-specific pathways would include courses that fulfill basic University of California requirements. The sites are also exploring diploma programs such as International Baccalaureate (IB) and AP Capstone, which allow students to engage in “rigorous scholarly practice” to develop academic skills necessary for success in college and beyond. The programs require students to pass a certain number of AP courses and complete a research project. Grove said with diploma programs, the district has to consider the cost — IB, in particular, involves some start-up costs for professional development in the neighborhood of $50,000 to $100,000. Other options the sites are considering include dual language immersion and creating spaces for project-based learning and “maker spaces.” Any shift in curricular programs takes a lot of research, Grove said, as they want to ensure the programs are high quality and represent what is best for the school.

The association will be required to produce performance metric reports. “The TBID is just finally getting up and running, in terms of its marketing activities, so this would build on that momentum and keep it going forward,” said Assistant City Manager Mark Delin. Transient Occupancy Tax revenues are anticipated to increase $205,000 on an annual basis, or $153,750 for the nine months of the fiscal year that the tax increase will be in effect. With the vote, the council appropriated $180,000 for marketing efforts, in the event that revenues from the 1 percent increase exceed projections. Future funding will be based on projected transient occupancy tax rate revenue. The agreement will be subject to annual renewal during the budget process. The city will send out letters announcing the increased tax on Oct. 6. And because a public hearing regarding the continuation of the district had already been scheduled, it is still slated for Oct. 19.

that raises the cost of water as customers consume more water each month. Therefore, under the proposal, the specific increases faced by customers would depend on their classification — single family, commercial, multi-family — and the amount of water consumed. At the Oct. 1 meeting, district staff presented a chart that illustrates the impact of the rate proposal on single-family homes. Customers who use 15 units every two months, which is considered the baseline allowance, would see their bills rise by $4.20 per month, for a bi-monthly bill of $107.36. Those who use 120 units every two months, the district average, would see their bills rise by $25.84 per month, for a bi-monthly bill of $588.30. While most customers would see their bills increase, the proposal would actually result in a decrease for a small number of customers. For example, customers who use 55 units every two months would see a monthly decrease of $3.43, for a new bi-monthly bill of $245.72. The variation in how the rate proposal would affect customers concerned board members Greg Gruzdowich and Marlene King, who voted against the measure. Gruzdowich also suggested that the graduated rate tiers should have a greater effect on the district’s largest consumers, whom he called “super-users.” General Manager Michael Bardin said the rate proposal and the method used to create it were seen by staff and consultants as legally defensible under state regulations, and a fair way to proportion costs to the district’s customers. “There is a little pain for everyone,” he said, because fixed charges would be increased for the district’s smallest users, while large users would be hit with higher water rates. “The majority of folks, their bill is going up,” Bardin said. The proposal also calls for the creation of “drought” or “water shortage” rates, which would be an additional increase designed to help the district maintain revenue in the face of mandated water conservation. The Santa Fe district is under orders from the state to cut its water use across the board by 36 percent. Because of that decrease in water sales, the district will face a steep drop in revenue. Jeanne Deaver, administrative manager, said the rate proposal approved by the board Oct. 1 contains provisions that would allow the board to impose drought rates to compensate for lost revenue, based on the corresponding cut in water use. However, the board would have to take a separate action to put the drought rates into effect, in addition to its vote on the overall three-year rate plan. Under the drought rate proposal, if instituted by the board, per-unit water rates would rise by roughly 50 percent under the district’s mandate to cut use by 36 percent, in addition to the average 9 percent increase contained in the three-year rate proposal. The district did not raise rates in 2014 or 2015, although rates were increased yearly from 2004 through 2013. Bardin said Thursday that if the proposed rate package is approved, Santa Fe will remain about in the middle of the pack in terms of water rates among San Diego County water agencies. “We won’t be the most expensive,” he said. A Santa Fe Irrigation District fact sheet is available at www.sfidwater.org/ratefactsheet.

Theatre School @ North Coast Coast Rep presents ‘Tale of Two Cities’ concert benefit The nonprofit Sing Your Song, which provides students with opportunities to perform in musical theater, is partnering with The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep’s production of “A Tale of Two Cities in Concert.” The staged concert version of the musical based on the novel by Charles Dickens will be performed Oct. 16 and 17 at the Avo Playhouse. The event will help raise money for The Theatre School @ North Coast Rep and support their Art With A Heart initiative. “It is the goal of Theatre Henry Pedersen, Alex Barwin and Emily Sturgess in “A School @ North Coast Rep Tale of Two Cities in Concert,” playing Oct. 16-17. that every child will have a Courtesy photo place to express themselves and the chance to help others by sharing their passion,” said Sullivan Crews, director of the production. “Not only will this ‘Tale of Two Cities in Concert’ fundraiser provide training for students interested in musical theatre, but it will also provide funding to allow students to participate in the education and training offered at the Theatre School @ North Coast Rep,” according to Sing Your Song. The play follows an emotionally moving love story amid two cities caught up in revolution. Although it is not fully staged, it will feature period costumes by David Pelton. “Being in the period costumes really does help with getting into character,” said cast member Emily Sturges, one of the actresses playing Lucy. “It helps me learn how I should hold myself and how to move accurately according to the period. Plus, the costumes are gorgeous. Doing a concert version is easier than doing a full-out production … It’s a double-edged sword, though, because it’s your job as the performer to get the message across to the audience without as much context.” “A Tale of Two Cities in Concert” opens Oct. 16. Performances are 7 p.m. Oct. 16 and 17. The AVO Playhouse is at 303 Main St. in Vista. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 with a military discount, and $15 for seniors and students.

RSF Rotary’s Taste event will be a first STEP for military aid group

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANE Y. WELCH Rancho Santa Fe Rotarians will present the third annual Taste of Rancho Santa Fe from 4-7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, to be held on the front lawn of The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. The event will feature culinary fare from more than 20 top-end local eateries along with fine wines and craft brews. There will be a silent auction, a live auction and gourmet tastings, all for a charitable cause which will directly benefit 10 local nonprofits. One of the beneficiaries is Support The Enlisted Project (STEP). This is its first year to benefit from the event. STEP’s mission is to provide financial assistance for basic needs like food, shelter, utilities and transportation to junior active-duty military and recently discharged veteran families, in pay grades E1 to E6. It also helps them achieve financial self-sufficiency. STEP supports all branches of the armed forces, the Coast Guard, as well as federally activated National Guard and activated reserves. Applicants may be on active duty or within the first 18 months after honorable discharge and experiencing temporary hardship. The organization provides an important safety net for service members. The need is great in San Diego County, which has the largest population of young vets under 25 years old (28,000) in the nation. Their earnings are generally below or just above the HUD low income classification, with thousands relying on food assistance to feed their families. Tony Teravainen, president and CEO of STEP, has been involved with the charity since 2009. It was renamed STEP in 2012, “to adjust to best serve the needs of southern California,” said Teravainen, who said that the nonprofit was originally part of a larger national charity. Teravainen understands first-hand the needs of military families. He spent 16 years traveling the world because his father, who was in the U.S. Air Force, was often stationed overseas. Just as Teravainen was embarking on a college education, he had to quickly leave, and with “big debts and nowhere to sleep” he enlisted in the Submarine Force, service that spanned more than eight years until he was discharged without notice on medical retirement. “I thought I had my life laid out in front of me, then I abruptly found myself out of the military and alone,” he recalled. Through a lot of hard work and luck, Teravainen said he got to a point where he could give back, and “that’s what made me decide to take that volunteer position on the (STEP) board of directors.” STEP is going through a period of expansion to meet the growing needs of the military community.

Courtesy photo Sixty percent of service members and their spouses indicate their family’s financial situations are a top stressor. Fifty-eight percent of military spouses, about 40,000 of them in San Diego’s local community, are at home and unemployed, but want to work and contribute to the family income. However, they cannot find meaningful work or afford child care, according to STEP’s statistics. Being a beneficiary of Taste of Rancho Santa Fe will greatly help STEP’s visibility, bringing awareness of its important work, which is 100 percent funded by private donations. “We are honored to be a part of the event,” said Teravainen. “As our reputation starts to solidify and more people become aware of us, we find more partners like the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club that have decided that we are a worthy cause,” he said. “That not only helps raise money for us but helps raise awareness of our mission and our organization.” To learn about STEP, visit www.stepsocal.org.

Each fall, Studio Barre encourages the communities of each of its nine national studios to join in promoting breast cancer awareness throughout October with events and promotions to benefit breast cancer charities and support those affected by the disease. This year, Studio Barre founder Shannon Higgins has made it a personal mission to create new opportunities to raise awareness through Studio Barre, because she was diagnosed with breast cancer over the summer. “One in 8 women will get breast cancer in (her) lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society,” Higgins said. “Every day, I am lucky to be surrounded by fierce, strong and inspiring women, and feel that more than ever, as a breast cancer fighter, I have an opportunity to make an impact by sharing my story.” Local Studio Barre locations in Carmel Valley, La Costa and Bird Rock will be offering free month-long memberships for cancer survivors and fighters, and free socks for those who book a mammogram this month. • On Oct. 16, Studio Barre will host a

“Girls Night Out” at the Belly Up Tavern in partnership with the Keep-A-Breast Foundation. The night will include a concert by Atomic Groove and a dance performance by the Fly Girls. • On Oct. 17, Studio Barre Carmel Valley will hold donation-only classes (minimum $10 donation), with all proceeds going toward the Apryle Showers Foundation. Apryle Showers is an organization that offers beachfront or waterfront rental properties to cancer patients in need of healing, restoration or peace. • On Oct. 25, Studio Barre La Costa will be hosting a donation-only Barre Workshop at 4:15 p.m. with all proceeds going to Keep-ABreast. Limited reservations are available, so advance sign-up is encouraged. Studio Barre has also designed two limited edition tank tops available for purchase in the studio boutiques. A portion of the proceeds will go toward a local cancer charity. Every Tata Tuesday, vendors in the boutique will donate 20 percent of sales to Keep-a-Breast. Visit StudioBarre.com.

The La Jolla Writers Conference marks its 15th anniversary this year with its annual symposium Nov. 6-8 at the La Jolla Hyatt at Aventine. Fifteen years ago, La Jolla Writers Conference founder Antoinette Kuritz gathered a group of successful writers together in her dining room to discuss an idea. With the changes in the publishing industry about to accelerate, she wanted to create a conference that focused on the art, craft, and business of writing. And in late October 2001, the LJWC was born. The conference has drawn attendees from 43 states and five countries to San Diego to become part of its writing community. It still remains a pay-it-forward conference; everyone involved, from the organizers to the faculty and keynotes, donates their time so that it can remain affordable to aspiring and seasoned authors. The facultyto-attendee ratio remains around 1-to-5, and the faculty are chosen for their knowledge, their ability to impart that knowledge effectively, and their generosity in doing so.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether you are a first-time author looking for direction or have a finished product, we provide a place where authors of every genre, fiction and nonfiction alike, at any stage of their writing or publishing process can come and get direct, personalized, honest feedback and direction. This is why we have always limited our conference to the first 200 attendees and only bring on outstanding faculty members that want to pay it forward,â&#x20AC;? says conference director Jared Kuritz. Approximately 70 classes are offered over the three-day weekend, including classes given by New York Times bestselling authors, agents, editors, publishers, publicists, and other professionals. This year, best-selling authors Scott McEwen, Christopher Reich, Andrew Peterson, Marie Bostwick, Lissa Price, Michelle Gable, and Dale Brown headline yet another stellar faculty eager to help turn writers into authors and authors into bestsellers.

Jungian analyst to discuss ‘Hauntings’ Oct. 16 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church “Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts that Run Our Lives” is the topic for James Hollis, Ph.D., at the Friday Lecture at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 16 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Del Mar 92014. Our ancestors believed in ghosts, and perhaps they were not far off the mark, as so much of daily life is driven by invisible psychic forces, archaic agendas, and imperious admonitions and prohibitions, all the more powerful because they operate unconsciously. What are the features of such “hauntings,” and how might we gain some further foothold on a more conscious conduct of life? Hollis is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst in private practice in WashJames Hollis ington, D.C., where he is also executive director of the Jung Society of Washington. He is the author of 14 books, most recently, “Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life,” “What Matters Most,” and “Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives.” Hollis’ work will also be the focus of a Saturday workshop from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 17 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, Del Mar. Literary and case studies will illustrate the presence of “hauntings” in people’s lives. Please bring note pad and pen upon which to reflect on the invisible powers that govern your daily life.

Aardvark Safaris of SB donates to rhino conservancy efforts In honor of the recent World Rhino Day, Solana Beach company Aardvark Safaris U.S. is donating $500 total ($125 each) to four rhino charities for each person who books a rhino conservation safari within the next three months. It’s a rare opportunity to get hands-on with these endangered animals, and a winwin for rhinos which, sadly, need all the help they can get. Rhino populations are being poached for their horns at an alarming rate — some species to the point of extinction — and the slaugh- The Spence family on rhino safari at Lewa Conservancy ter shows no sign of slowing. in Kenya. Courtesy photo By the end of August, 27,749 Southern white rhinos had been killed in South Africa — home to the majority of the world’s remaining rhinos — compared with 716 at the same time last year. “San Diego has always had a strong connection with rhinos through its Zoo and Wildlife Park, both of which are associated with many of the camps we work with,” says Aardvark Safaris U.S. President John Spence. “We love all African wildlife, but the poor old rhino holds a place in our hearts, which is why we decided to donate directly to the charities working so hard to save them.“ Tourism remains one of the best forms of conservation for all threatened species, including black and white rhinos. By creating jobs and wealth at a local and national level, tourism drives governments to defend those tourist dollars by protecting their wild animals. Aardvark Safaris works closely with conservation-focused camps and has arranged for clients to enjoy behind-the-scenes access to various rhino-related projects at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Borana Conservancy, Lewa Conservancy, and more. With large-scale poaching, slow breeding cycles and vanishing habitat cutting into rhino numbers, programs like these are vital to their recovery. One option is a three-night rhino conservation safari at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, South Africa. There you will track rhino by helicopter, dart them and help drill their horn to insert microchips, perform ear-notch procedures, and learn about rhino behavior. Call Aardvark Safaris at 888-776-0888 or email info@aardvarksafaris.com.

Preschoolers are focus for reading event Oct. 24 The Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito plans a “Make a Difference Day” Preschool Literacy Event at 10 a.m. Oct. 24 at the Encinitas County Library, 540 Cornish Drive, Encinitas, CA 92024. Preschoolers will be “jazzed” when the day’s entertainment is designed specifically for them. While supplies last, preschoolers who have a library card and attend will receive a book bag and a special T-shirt to commemorate the day. This congratulates them for their involvement in the library’s audacious goal: In 2015, 1,000 preschoolers will read 1,000 books before starting kindergarten. This year, 1,039 preschool library readers are working to achieve this goal. Assistance League of Rancho San Dieguito’s volunteers support the overall goal, that all young library readers will read at grade level by third grade. This year, Assistance League is “Making a Difference” with a donation of $2,000 to buy new preschool books. The books will be introduced to young readers and their parents on Oct. 24. “Our volunteers work all year to secure funds that will enrich the lives of children in our North County San Diego communities.” said Chapter President Lois Green.

Jeep Vehicle Hacked, Unwittingly Driven Into Ditch Imagine this. You’re driving on I-5 when all of a sudden your gas pedal is no longer responsive. Your wheel goes dead. You frantically check the gas meter – all looks fine. What just happened? A hacker turned off your vehicle. This isn’t a tale from Hollywood. In fact, it’s exactly what happened when a cybersecurity group of researchers used the internet to hack into a Jeep Cherokee’s computer system. Of course, the radio, equipped with the entertainment system

UConnect, had all the bells and whistles a consumer could want… including WiFi and internet. And it was precisely those features that allowed hackers to get into the vehicle’s computer and command its steering, brakes and the engine. That’s an incredibly scary thought in this day and age as cyberattacks are nearly rampant. We’ve all heard of the security breaches at stores like Home Depot and Target; now, hackers can even take over a citizen’s car if they want to. The proverbial doors are wide open. The story original debuted at Wired magazine (7/21/2015). Among other things, researchers disabled the brakes of the Jeep Cherokee in question, driven by one of the technology reporters. The vehicle careened into a ditch as a result. Fortunately, the hack was controlled and no one was injured. Researchers didn’t stop there. They toyed with the vehicle’s radio, steering, horn and seat belt. They disabled the brakes. And

what’s more, everything was done on the fly, through the internet. Fiat Chrysler issued a software patch as soon as the issue became public. As a result of the potential threat, the manufacturer issued a recall for 1.4 million vehicles to address the bug. Fiat Chrysler owners don’t have to take in their vehicles for the patch; instead they will receive a USB drive with a software update they can do themselves right from the dash of their vehicle thanks in part to – that’s right – the internet. In a reassuring twist, the researchers did note that the hack was certainly not easy to perform. It took one year of sophisticated reprogramming including multiple attempts to actually hack the vehicle. So, the good news is that if you’re driving an affected Jeep according to the list below, you’re more than likely safe – for now. Of course, it’s a good idea to get your patch right away. Affected vehicles include: • 2013-2015 MY Dodge Viper specialty

vehicles • 2013-2015 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups • 2013-2015 Ram 3500, 4500, 5500 Chassis Cabs • 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Cherokee SUVs • 2014-2015 Dodge Durango SUVs • 2015 MY Chrysler 200, Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans • 2015 Dodge Challenger sports coupes For more information on the UConnect security update, click here.

A golden fruit: Fall’s main squeeze is here CATHARINE KAUFMAN KITCHEN SHRINK Orange season has arrived with such varieties as Valencias, Cara Caras and Navels piled high in supermarket aisles and farmers markets. Christopher Columbus took a goodly supply of oranges on his voyages to protect his sailors from scurvy. Here’s why you should have a daily dose of sunshine. A Slice of Life As healthful as it is delicious, this mighty carb is an immune-boosting Vitamin C powerhouse with a load of bone-strengthening calcium, body-balancing potassium, Vitamin A for skin and ocular health, a slew of B’s for cell metabolism and nerve function, and Vitamin E, a warrior against toxins and other diseases. There’s more. Oranges have been linked to keeping kidney stones at bay, amping up heart health, regulating blood pressure, lowering cholesterol levels, kicking viral infections under the bus, and keeping the constitution regular. Orange Up The orange is believed

to be a Pomelo and Mandarin hybrid. Globally, there are more than 600 orange varieties, but here is a list of some California and Florida favorites: • One of the most popular oranges is the seedless Navel, so named because its blossom end resembles a belly button. Navels make great snacks, easy to peel and separate into segments for a juicy pick me up. Tip: The bigger the navel, the sweeter the orange. • Seedy, thin-skinned Valencias are great for juicing. There’s nothing more invigorating than a cool glass of fresh-squeezed pulpy orange juice. Or shove a whole orange into the cavity of a duck or chicken before roasting. • The Moro, the most common type of blood orange, is a seedless, thinskinned variety with a strikingly beautiful crimson-tinted flesh. The Moro’s dramatic color and distinct taste with notes of raspberry come from high concentrations of the powerful pigment anthocyanin, an antioxidant that fends off free radicals. Sliced or segmented, Moros should be shown off

The Kitchen Shrink in everything from the traditional Sicilian blood orange winter salad with fennel bulbs and a drizzle of olive oil, chilled soups and sassy vinaigrette dressings to gelatos and sorbets. Or whet your whistle with a blood orange Mimosa, Cosmopolitan, Sangria or smoothie. • The juicy, low acid Cara Cara, a type of Navel hybrid has a distinct rosy flesh, rich in lycopene with hints of zesty cranberry. A splash of Cara Cara juice enlivens marinades, mocktails and cocktails, while the pretty pink segments or slices add eye candy and zip to pico de gallo and fruit cocktails, grilled chicken or halibut, trifles and flans. • Tangerines (Fairchild and Dancy), Mandarins (Sat-

suma, Honey and Royal), and Tangelos, a grapefruit and tangerine cross (Orlandos and Minneolas) are palmsized spheres with loose, bright orange skin. They are easy to peel in one motion, and delightful as a snack, addition to quinoa and spinach salads, taboulis, cranberry relishes, chutneys and salsas, stir fries, parfaits and rice pudding. With notes of honey, Tangerines and Mandarins are delicate nuggets, while Tangelos have a tart, sweet kick. Lots of Appeal Before you toss orange peels in the compost bin, think again. Those dimply rinds have four times the amount of fiber as the flesh, are diabetic friendly and contain a motherlode of flavonoid antioxidants to boost the immune system and curb inflammation. The peel also contains the precious orange oil that exudes the true, concentrated fruit essence. Zest or grate into scones, cakes, cookies,

up candied orange peels to accessorize cocktails or dial up your favorite dessert. Try infusing olive oil with the peel to ratchet up salads, stir fries, or simply use as a divine dipping sauce for your favorite crusty bread. Orange and Rosemary Infused Olive Oil Ingredients 1 cup extra virgin olive oil Rind from two oranges (Blood, Cara Cara, your choice) 1 fresh rosemary sprig

biscotti, quick breads or pancakes, risottos, pilafs, chilled soups, steamed vegetables, or a cup of hot cider. Shave on grilled wildcaught salmon, seared scallops, shrimp skewers, Asian chicken or beef, rice pudding or Greek yogurt. Toss the whole peel in barbecue coals to infuse a fruity essence to grilled offerings. Add rinds to a bag of brown sugar to keep it moist. Whip

Method: Peel rind from oranges, removing bitter white pith. Combine ingredients in a saucepan and heat on low for 20 minutes. Remove from heat, cool, and strain. Pour into spouted glass olive oil bottles. Enjoy as needed. For additional orange recipes, e-mail kitchenshrink@san. rr.com

Heier has been in residential real estate for many years, but recently moved to the San Diego area from northern California. Her experience in real estate runs the gamut, from working successfully with real estate investors to representing luxury buyers and sellers, as well as first time homebuyers. “As I was talking to other Realtors and friends in San Diego, the name Willis Allen kept coming up in conversation,” explains Heier of her decision to hang her license at the brokerage. “I was able to connect with

another Willis Allen Realtor, and she raved about the company! It just felt like the right fit for me.” Del Mar branch manager Anne Le Beau McBee says that feeling was mutual. “Beckie shares many of Willis Allen’s core values – honesty, knowledge and working hard,” she says. “It is a good match, and we’re excited to have Beckie on the team.” Heier is an advocate for children’s issues and is a volunteer at the local PTA. She is also passionate about sex trafficking awareness and dedicates her time to Blue Heart International. That organization is dedicated to giving the survivors of child trafficking a place to work, live, and learn what it means to be loved.
