goodbye, many students and parents were unconvinced that his retirement was voluntary. They flooded the school board with letters to ask for transparency on whether he had been “forced” or “swayed” into retirement by the administration. Some speculated that he had been too outspoken
about class sizes and the physics class configuration. “The Harvie we know would not give up without any explanation or any reason. The Harvie we know would endure fire and conflict….The Harvie we know would teach as long as he had a breath in him,” read one student’s letter.
Solana Beach council allocates $300,000 for skate park BY KRISTINA HOUCK Solana Beach could eventually have its own skate park. The Solana Beach City Council on Oct. 26 unanimously agreed to allocate $300,000 from a surplus fund to move forward with a skate park, which was first proposed as part of the planned renovations of the 3.79-acre La Colonia Park and Community Center. “I think this is something great that we can do,” Councilwoman Lesa Heebner said. In 2007, an advisory committee made up of staff and community members developed a needs assessment for La Colonia Park and Community Center. The council in 2008 approved plans produced by Van Dyke Landscape Architects. The two-phase project detailed all exterior improvements west of the community center for the first phase, and the renovation and expansion of the SEE PARK, A26
Both students and parents requested that an item regarding Harvie’s departure be placed on the board’s Nov. 3 agenda. “Mr. Harvie is an outstanding teacher with a well-deserved reputation for his commitment to students. We were also surprised by SEE TEACHER, A26
A rendering of the retail element of One Paseo in Carmel Valley.
One Paseo work to begin in coming months BY KAREN BILLING ilroy Realty is getting ready to start moving some dirt on the One Paseo project in Carmel Valley. Jamas Gwilliam, senior vice president at Kilroy Realty, provided an update to the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board on the mixed-use center planned for El Camino Real and Del Mar Heights Road at its Oct. 27 meeting. Gwilliam said since San Diego City Council’s approval in June, Kilroy has been “hunkered down,” refining its design plan which includes smaller scale retail buildings that incorporate a blend of modern and “country modern”
architecture and softening the residential element off El Camino Real by pushing density to the interior of the site. Construction is set to begin in 2017 on the 95,000 square feet of retail and 608 residential units in 2017. The first retail is set to open in the second quarter of 2018, with housing to follow in 2020. Construction on the 280,000 square feet of office buildings is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2017, opening in 2019.

Del Mar Mesa board questions city removal of historic trees
BY SUZANNE EVANS Unannounced city removal of several eucalyptus trees in the Del Mar Mesa has puzzled the Del Mar Mesa Community Planning Board. The cuttings were done the weekend of Oct. 8 in a grove at the east end of the mesa slated for a community park, including a tree that recently fell down, and others the city deemed “dangerous.” “Without any feeling, [the city] cut down the trees,” complained chair Gary Levitt at
the board’s meeting Thursday, Oct. 13. “About half a dozen large trees in a grove in the corner of the [planned community] park” were removed. “These trees are considered historic and very important to the community. We should talk to a landscape architect,” said board member Lisa Ross. After the meeting, Levitt clarified: “They cut all the trees in one weekend, which were supposed to be left as an important
feature of the park, representative of the many groves of eucalyptus trees that used to populate the area. The city has shown us plans for replacement trees; but two to three trees in 48-inch-sized boxes do not make up for the loss.” Mike Rodrigues, district manager, Northern Parks District 40, said in an Oct. 21 memo to Steve Hadley, council representative, District 1 office: SEE HISTORIC TREES, A26

Retired attorney pens legal thriller with supernatural twist BY JOE TASH uring his 55-year-long career as a trial lawyer, V. Frank Asaro would sometimes wake up in the middle of the night, his mind racing as he fretted about his current case – would a witness show up, had he dotted all the “i’s” and crossed the “t’s?” At those times, he would pick up a pen and write stories. “It took my mind off the worries and then I could go back to sleep,” said Asaro. “The next thing I knew, I had a drawer full of things I’d written.” Some of his writings have since made it into print – Asaro, 81, of Carmel Valley, began publishing books as his legal career wound down. He has now written four books, two nonfiction and two novels. His most recent novel, a legal thriller-ghost story-romance called “Althea Haunting,” came out in October. (The book was published by Del Mar-based Bettie Youngs Books and is available on Amazon.com.) Although he’s now retired from the legal profession, Asaro has no plans to put down his pen and sit with his feet propped on the proverbial porch railing. “I can’t take it easy. Life becomes too boring,” he said. Besides, he said, “I find it very calming to craft phrases and sentences. I enjoy writing.” “Althea Haunting” draws from Asaro’s courtroom experience, a sensational but true 1890s legal case and Asaro’s imagination. Part of the book is set in the present, and part of it in the past. It

centers around an attorney, representing a client in a palimony case, who delves into the archives of past court cases to find legal precedent to bolster his arguments. The historic case – which Asaro first came across decades ago when he was working as a law clerk – concerns a young woman who marries an older, wealthy man who was also an influential politician. When the relationship ends and she seeks financial compensation, the politician prevails and ends up having the woman committed to an insane asylum, where she later dies. The book includes duels, apparitions and intrigue. “It was a lot of fun” to write, said Asaro. In one key passage, the modern-day attorney, Brent Wiles, is in the stacks of a law library late on a rainy night, reading about Althea’s case, when something catches his attention outside the third-story window. “Two sets of thumbs and two sets of four fingers clearly showed through the glass. The fingers extended into the hands of a woman who stood just outside the window, her hands held at waist level. Her rain-soaked dark hair was plastered to her face. Her lips moved, half-smiling, seeming to plead for something; he couldn’t make it out,” Asaro wrote. “... He vigorously rubbed his eyes with the heels of his hands and immediately re-opened them. She was gone.” While Asaro enjoys spinning yarns through his fiction, he also has written

two nonfiction works, both concerning his theory of “co-opetition,” or a fusion of competition and cooperation that he contends can lead to superior outcomes in a range of fields, from music to science to politics. The second edition of his book, “A Primal Wisdom,” was named as a finalist in the categories of nonfiction and philosophy in the 2015 USA Best Book awards. Asaro has also discussed his theory – he said he coined the phrase “co-opetition” in the 1980s – on the Fox Network’s “Fox and Friends” show with host Tucker Carlson. Essentially, Asaro’s theory calls for the aggressive debate of ideas within the confines of civility and good-faith discourse. “It’s about how to avoid polarization without giving up your principles,” he said. “This is something that is missing in our public debate.” Examples he gave are the NFL, where teams share television revenue but compete fiercely on the field, and two car companies that share an engine design, while using those engines in competing vehicle models. War, he said, is a competition, while the Geneva conventions represent cooperation. Hoping to have a positive influence on debate during the current presidential campaign, Asaro sent copies of his non-fiction book to candidates on both sides of the political spectrum during the primaries, but didn’t hear back.

Bestselling author addresses difficult issues in new novel BY LOIS ALTER MARK “Writing this book has completely changed my life and the way I see the world,” said Jodi Picoult at the recent 13th annual Words Alive Author’s Luncheon. A record 750 people attended the event at the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina to hear the bestselling author talk about her latest novel, “Small Great Things,” a powerful, thought-provoking and timely story in which she tackles difficult issues, including racism, privilege and justice. Local author Lacy Crawford introduced Picoult and asked her how the book came about. “About 25 years ago, I was living in New York City and I was very upset about a news story of an African American undercover cop who was shot four times in the back by his white colleagues on the subway even though he was wearing something called the color of the day, which was a wristband that identified him as an undercover cop,” she explained. “I decided I wanted to write about racism and I wanted to use that story. So I started to write it and I failed miserably. I couldn’t seem to create authentic characters, voices, stories that worked within this framework.”
Jodi Picoult signing a book at the recent Words Alive event. Picoult said she really questioned herself and wondered what right she had, as a white woman, to write about racism in the United States. She put the book away but, over the years, kept returning to the subject. “I would play devil’s advocate and say, ‘Oh, you know, Jodi, you write all the time from points of view of people you’re not. You write as Holocaust survivors, as rape victims, as school shooters, as men. How is this different?’ Well, the reason it’s different is because it’s really hard to talk about racism without offending people. So, as a result, most of us choose just not to talk about it at all.” In 2012, another news story finally gave her the framework to be able to talk about it. In Flint, Michigan, an African-American labor and delivery nurse with 20 years of experience routinely delivered a baby, and the father called in her supervisor. He said, “I don’t want her or anyone who looks like her to touch my baby,” and pushed up his sleeve to reveal a swastika tattoo. “In their infinite wisdom, the hospital put a Post-It note on the baby’s file, saying, ‘No African American personnel may touch this infant,’’’ Picoult continued. “The nurse and several of her colleagues sued. They settled out
of court and she got a boatload of money. But it made me wonder, what if this was the story that I wanted to enter into racism with? What if I could push the envelope? What if that nurse was the only one alone with that baby when something went wrong and she had to choose between saving that baby’s life and obeying her supervisor’s orders? What if, as a result, she wound up on trial, represented by a white public defender who, like me, like a lot of people I know, would never consider herself to be a racist? What if I could tell the story from the point of view of the African American nurse, the white public defender and the skinhead father?” Picoult knew then that she was going to be able to write this book. “I was no longer writing it to tell people of color how hard their lives are, because they do not need me for that,” she said. “Honestly, there are many fantastic writers of color who can speak to that experience authentically and are doing it every single day. I was now writing it for people who look like me, to say that although we can all point to a skinhead and say, ‘that’s a racist,’ it’s a lot harder to point to ourselves and say the exact same thing.” That realization led her on a journey she had never taken before, learning everything she could about racism. “I spent 47 years not talking about racism because it’s hard and messy and scary and, most importantly, because I didn’t have to. That, in itself – that silence – is privilege.” The audience was riveted as Picoult shared the stories of the women she met at a Racial Justice Workshop. She spent more than 100 hours interviewing these women, many of whom became the “sensitivity readers” for her manuscript to make sure the characters and their experiences rang true. “I should not and could not have written the book without them, and I’m so grateful to them,” said Picoult. She also met with skinheads and discovered that the white supremacy movement has actually grown and that its members no longer have shaved heads. “They look like us,” she said. “And they’re mostly ferreting out online ways to create and incite fear. They’re preparing for the racial holy war and stockpiling weapons in places like New Hampshire, where I live, and North Dakota.” Picoult said she can’t overstate how much she learned as a human being while doing research for “Great Small Things,” and that fact seemed to perfectly illustrate the importance of Words Alive. With almost one fifth of San Diegans falling into the category of illiterate or functionally illiterate, the organization’s mission is more vital than ever. “It’s always such an honor to have an author of Ms. Picoult’s distinction joining us,” said Patrick Stewart, executive director of Words Alive. “To connect our mission of making reading matter in our community with artists who, truly, make reading matter globally, really reinforces what we’re all collectively trying to achieve.” For more information on Words Alive, visit www.wordsalive.org. “Great Small Things” can be found on amazon.com.

Solana Beach Big Brothers Big Sisters board member brings largest fundraiser to life BY KRISTINA HOUCK For the second year, Solana Beach’s Tom van Betten helped bring Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County’s largest fundraiser to life. The 54th annual Gourmet Dinner Oct. 20 at Hyatt Regency at La Jolla Aventine was another success, raising nearly $800,000 for the nonprofit organization. “This was the biggest and best year ever,” said van Betten, Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County board member and Gourmet Dinner chair. A longtime supporter of Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County, van Betten has served on the organization’s Board of Directors since 2011. Prior to the board, he volunteered on the organization’s Gourmet Dinner Committee. This was his second consecutive year as board chair of the Gourmet Dinner. From selling tables to soliciting auction items, he had his hand in just about everything in the sold-out event. About 700 people attended the event. “People had a great time,” said van Betten, who has lived in either Del Mar or Solana Beach since 2001. Although van Betten has worked on other boards, this is his first time serving on the board of a nonprofit organization. It was an easy decision to get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County, he said, because it is an effective organization that makes change in the community. “I really believe that it works,” he said. “One-on-one mentoring works.” For more than 100 years nationally and 55 years locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters has created and supported mentoring relationships, matching adult volunteers known as “Bigs” with children called “Littles.” Locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County serves children ages 7-21 through six distinct programs. These include Amachi, a program for children with an incarcerated parent; High School Bigs, after school one-to-one mentoring programs; Community Mentoring, the traditional one-to-one mentoring program; Operation Bigs, a program serving children with active military parents; Big Futures, education and career support; and Healthy Futures, a health
Tom van Betten and wellness mentoring program. “Every year we’re pushing it and achieving more,” van Betten said. “It’s been really fun to be part of such a well-organized, well-run nonprofit.” Since coming on board, van Betten, who has worked in commercial real estate for 25 years, has served on the board development and fundraising committees. He was also instrumental in negotiating the lease when Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County moved its headquarters to City Heights in 2014 and donated his commission to the organization. Van Betten currently serves as managing director of commercial real estate company Cushman & Wakefield’s Tenant Representation division. He is also co-owner of the Saddle Bar in Solana Beach, where he has held another fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of San Diego County. “A lot of our revenue is driven by events,” van Betten said. “We are run almost exclusively by donations.” This year’s Gourmet Dinner, Van Betten said, raised nearly $800,000 and netted $650,000, which is a $200,000 increase from 2015 and a $100,000 increase from 2014. Funds raised help support the programs, which research has found help Littles become more confident of their performance in schoolwork and get along better with their families. According to a study that looked at more than 950 boys and girls from eight Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies across the country, researchers also found that after 18 months of spending time with their Bigs, Little Brothers and Little SEE BIG BROTHERS, A26

Making an impression
Student stokes young STEM minds BY KAREN BILLING Bishop’s senior Nikita Krishnan visited Torrey Hills Elementary School recently to encourage young students to spark an interest in STEM. Nikita, 16, took her interest in STEM and created her own non-profit Creature Comfort and Care — she uses 3-D printer technology to provide inexpensive but effective prosthetics and assistive devices to animals in need. Torrey Hills’ science teacher Uma Krishnan (no relation) invited Nikita to the school on Oct. 25 to inspire her robotics students. Nikita’s innovation evolved out of her enjoyment of community service. She had been working as a volunteer with the Lions, Tigers and Bears, a big cat and exotic animal rescue in Alpine. “I really loved working with animals but I realized I could be doing more. I wanted to help even more,” Nikita said. Through her volunteerism with the rescue, she understood how big an expense it can be to take care of animals. She wanted to create an
inexpensive solution to an expensive animal-care problem. To find her solution, she turned to STEM and began researching 3-D printing. Nikita knew nothing about 3-D printing before she began but found that anything is possible with the amazing technology of the printer — you could make 3-D jaws, beaks, horseshoes, horns, legs and splints for animals made of safe, non-toxic material. She founded Creature Comfort and Care with her home printer and reached out to many local organizations to see if they would be interested in what she offered. She heard no response. “Failure was a big part of my experience,” Nikita told the students. “Without failure, I wouldn’t be where I am today… Failure is common and happens to everyone and you shouldn’t let it get you down.” While there were times she wanted to give up, she was determined and kept sending out inquiries about her free service. Finally, she received a response
from the Greyhound Adoption Center, which rescues track dogs, many of them from Mexico. A lot of the dogs suffer from injuries in their legs. Nikita first met with the dogs, took a lot of photos and measurements and brainstormed ideas for a splint. Through a lot of trial and error, she designed a model to take to the printer using a program called On Shape.
“The splints they had been using were 11-and-a-half ounces and were heavy for the dogs to carry,” Nikita said. “My splint was three-and-a-half pounds, which was much lighter and helped expedite the healing process.” Her first splint was for a dog named Leah. “It worked for her and I was really happy,” she said. Media attention for her series of splints has resulted in some

Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society shares history with students BY KRISTINA HOUCK ontinuing the late historian Jim Nelson’s legacy, former Solana Beach Mayor Joe Kellejian recently stepped into the role of Sen. James West Stevens and brought history to life for local students at the Solana Beach Heritage Museum. Solana Vista third-graders visit the Solana Beach Heritage Museum every year through Solana Beach Civic and Historical Society’s Living History program, which Nelson managed, along with his wife Kathalyn, until his passing in April. Fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students in Skyline’s Global Education program also visit the museum every three years. “That was my driving force — Jim Nelson,” Kellejian said. “What he had done for this community, and what he had done to make this a wonderful place where people could come and enjoy and learn about the history of Solana Beach — it’s a wonderful thing. They preserved this for future generations.” Built in 1887, the museum is the first home constructed in the community. It sat on Pepper Tree Lane, now called Del Mar Downs Road, for 101 years. In 1990, the house was moved to La Colonia Park in Solana Beach, where it is owned by the city and operated as a

Nelson, who authored two books on the history of Solana Beach, served as curator of the Solana Beach Heritage Museum. “It’s Solana Beach’s best-kept secret,” Nelson said in a past interview. The Living History program, which launched more than a decade ago, covers the community’s history, starting from
when the area was inhabited by Native Americans. During the nearly 2 1/2-hour program, volunteer docents dress in period costumes, inviting students to imagine they are spending a week at the 10-acre Molly Glen Ranch. Nelson had played the role of the senator, who lived in the original house. He showed the students around the 1900s-style parlor. Stevens, now performed by
Kellejian, teaches the children how to perform chores such as filling kerosene lamps and sweeping the floor. The students then visit the 1900s-style kitchen, where Stevens’ wife, Susanna, demonstrates another two dozen chores. After touring both rooms, students go outside to play traditional games such as croquet, hopscotch, and jump rope. After playing outside, they return to the museum, where it is now the 1930s,

They discover how chores changed and tour a more modern 1930s kitchen and living room, which feature a sink with faucets, refrigerator, gas stove, washing machine with spin dryer, wall phones and more. Before the end of the field trip, students help make homemade ice cream. “We’re carrying on Jim’s legacy,” said Jolene Bogard, who now heads the program. The daughter of former Mayor Marion Dodson, Bogard asked Kellejian to step into Nelson’s former role, and her mother to portray the 1930s kitchen maid, a role formerly played by the late first Mayor Margaret Schlesinger. Kathalyn Nelson still serves as narrator. “It’s wonderful to see former council members stepping into these roles and wanting to share the history of Solana Beach with area children,” Bogard said.

Carmel Valley Middle School students ‘Elect to be drug free’
Ninja Builders and coaches from left to right: Mingming Zhang, Woocheol Kim, Sean Cooney, Nathan Wu, Christopher Caliguiri, John Aste, Meredith Caliguiri and Mason Holst.
Carmel Valley Ninja Builders advance to First Lego League Southern California Championship A group of six eighth grade boys from Carmel Valley will advance to the First Lego League (FLL) Southern California Championship after winning for robot design at the FLL Qualifying Tournament on Oct. 30 at High Tech High School. The Ninja Builders – John Aste, Christopher Caliguiri, Sean Cooney, Mason Holst, Woocheol Kim, and Nathan Wu – competed against teams from throughout San Diego in this year’s FLL Challenge. The FLL Challenge is a three-part competition involving a robot game, which requires competitors to build and program an autonomous robot to accomplish various missions on a thematic Lego playing surface, a project requiring the team to find creative solutions to improve human and animal interaction, and a demonstration of core values emphasizing teamwork, cooperation, gracious professionalism and friendly competition.
As Red Ribbon week kicked off at Carmel Valley Middle School, the message was clear from students that they choose to be drug and alcohol free. To help empower kids through education, both Carmel Valley and Pacific Trails Middle schools presented the same assembly to their students. Hope2gether Foundation shared the story of Aaron Rubin, a popular athlete from Poway High School, who had it all going for him but could not overcome his addiction to drugs. When he was 23 he overdosed on prescription drugs but somehow survived after almost four weeks in a coma. His mom, Sherrie Rubin, founded Hope2gether in 2009 to help educate the community, and especially kids, about the consequences of drug use. Aaron is a quadriplegic but this doesn’t stop him from engaging with the students during the assembly. He is
Guest speaker Sherrie Rubin with her son Aaron Rubin. able to use his fingers to answer yes or no questions and you can tell that he understands. Aaron and Sherrie delivered a powerful message related to the dangers of prescription drugs that are commonly found in medicine cabinets. The statistics from the CDC are shocking, 44 people a day die in a prescription drug death. Please protect
your family and safely drop off any prescription drugs that you have no use for in your home. The community drop box is located at SDPD Northwestern Division, 12592 El Camino Real, Carmel Valley.

UCSD Innovation Lecture Series
Medical tattoo ace: Research must ‘skate to where the puck is going’ BY WILL BOWEN UC San Diego Professor of Bioengineering Todd Coleman opened his recent lecture at Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine with a quote from hockey great Wayne Gretsky: “Gretsky says that he does not skate toward the puck, but rather, he skates to where the puck is going.” Coleman followed up with an inspiring lecture on where things are going in medicine, as part of the “Inside Innovation” lecture series, presented by the UCSD Office of Innovation & Commercialization, 4 p.m. third Tuesdays in Roth Auditorium at Sanford Consortium. Coleman is best known for his work with medical tattoos. These are very Todd Coleman small electrical circuit boards you peel off from a piece of plastic and paste on the skin. The “tattoos” monitor and send off all kinds of data about what is going on in your body — things like blood pressure, heart rate, etc. Medical tattoos are the wave of the future. They will replace all the bulky testing and monitoring equipment that doctors now use. Soon, you won’t have to go into the doctor’s office or hospital to be have simple tests, the doctor can monitor your wellbeing from afar — 24/7 — by way of signals from the medical tattoo. Knowing about medical tattoos now is like knowing that you should have invested in
Todd Coleman talks about his research on medical tattoos. Facebook before it took off or Qualcomm before everyone on the planet bought a cell phone. This is where the puck is going! By way of example, Coleman shared slides of a pregnant woman who was being monitored in the hospital for fetal heart rate. She had two bulky belts with electronic instruments strapped to her body. It was a pain for her to unharness them when she had to use the bathroom. Coleman came into her room and replaced the bulky harnesses with a 1- by 2-inch electronic tattoo that he stuck to her protruding stomach like a post-it note. The tattoo sent the same data as the bulky belts to a nearby iPad screen by way of Bluetooth technology. Coleman went on to share another use of the tattoo technology.

After his talk, Bill Decker, director of operations at OIC, got up to moderate a Q&A between Coleman and the audience.

Coleman said he is working on a tattoo you place on the abdomen and it monitors the electrical waves in the intestines and provides all the information needed without the invasiveness of the other methods. Medical tattoos can also be used to turn on genes — like a gene that would prevent or rehabilitate Alzheimer’s disease. Athletes can use tattoos for enhancing their training and performance. The sky is the limit when it comes to medical tattoos. Coleman said he can do a lot of the necessary research in his lab to develop the tattoos with grad student

De Anza DAR donates stuffed animals to San Diego Police
he De Anza Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, recently offered a donation of over 100 new stuffed animals to the San Diego Police Department. Members of the chapter, in order to celebrate the 126th birthday of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, engaged in a “Day of Service.” This year’s service project was an outreach to first responders. The chapter collected and bagged the plush toys and brought them to Community Relations Officer Trevor Philips at the Northwestern Division Station in Carmel Valley. The police officers carry the stuffed animals in their vehicles to offer to children in crisis. “Our chapter felt that our police officers could use some support from the community. Many times they are the first on the scene in troubled situations, and there are children in need of
comfort. These stuffed animals are a way to help officers calm those children,” said chapter Regent Linda Unrue. “Community service is a big part of what we do as an organization, and Officer Philips was great to work with in helping us coordinate this donation.” The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation’s children. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With more than 165,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world’s largest and most active service organizations. To learn more about the work of today’s DAR, visit www.DAR.org.
The Del Mar Foundation recently announced new officers for 2016-17. Bob Gans, most recently Foundation Vice-President and Development Chair, was elected President to replace Judd Halenza, who has headed the organization for the past two years. During Halenza’s tenure, the Foundation expanded its programming, increased the size of its endowment, and doubled its grants-making budget. The board expressed its gratitude to Halenza for his leadership at its most recent meeting as well as its appreciation for his willingness to remain on the board as Immediate Past President. Also elected as officers were Ira Sharp, who becomes Vice President and remains Chair of the Grants Committee; Michael Halpern, who remains as Treasurer; and Sandra Hoyle, who assumes the position of Secretary as well as Chair of the Foundation’s Special Events Committee. Formerly co-chair of the Young Del Mar Committee, Hoyle replaces Julie Maxey-Allison, who is leaving the board after six years of service. Gans thanked Maxey-Allison for her service at the October board meeting, specifically crediting her as the architect of the popular DMF Talks series, which he described as “Del Mar’s own version of TedX talks, only better.” The entire board expressed the hope that she will remain an active part of the Foundation for years to come. The Foundation also elected Del Mar
resident Amanda Allen to the board, appointing her as Co-Chair of the Young Del Mar Committee. A native of Norris, Tennessee, (which she describes as “a tight knit community much like Del Mar in its spirit of volunteerism”), Ougoing Allen has been an active President Judd member of Young Del Halenza Mar, having played a principal role in organizing the highly successful “Parents’ Night Out” program. She is the proud mother of son Wylie, a second grader at Del Mar Heights Elementary, and daughter Eva May, a preschooler. The remaining membership of the Foundation board includes Cultural Arts Chair Donna Shaw, Communications Chair Bill Morris, Summer Twilight Concerts Chair T. Pat Stubbs, Young Del Mar Co-Chair Karla Deerinck, and Foundation mainstays Steve Lutz, Richard Bockoff, and Alice Brown. Jan Barnes remains the Foundation’s indispensable Administrative Director. The mission of the Del Mar Foundation is to promote civic pride and cohesiveness, acquire and preserve open space, improve beaches and parklands, raise and grant funds, and sponsor diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar.

Local students create mobile crime app Plans safe driving route BY VIC WINTRISS igh-crime areas are unfortunately becoming a reality. To help find safe driving routes, a team of students at The League Of Amazing Programmers has created a new app Steer Clear San Diego. It computes relative danger of a driving route based on local crime data bases. Mentored by teacher Site Mao, the app was written by Ruoya Yan, Matthew Smith, Ryan Nemiroff, TJ Gascho and Nicholas Contreras as part of their level-6 “social good” project. The League is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) after-school program that teaches Java programming to 5-12 grade kids. The 10-level curriculum takes students from novice to Oracle Certified Professional Programmer in 4-6 years. Students prepare for the AP Computer Science exam by 9th grade and earn UCSD Extension credits while having fun learning programming! When asked to describe the project, Yan says “A large set of crime data was provided that shows points of crime in San Diego, with the location, time and type of crime. This data is compiled by our Android app, which computes crime density as a ‘heat map’ over San Diego. By tapping on the screen, you can see specific stats for a precise location. You can also find the average crime over a selected
CCA students Ruoya Yan and Matthew Smith programming the mobile crime app. route.” Smith adds “we are planning on restructuring the data and adding new features...which could take a while. One of our goals is to get it integrated with Twitter and Facebook so it can search for people posting about crime in San Diego. This will allow us to provide more recent and accurate data to the user.” The Android mobile app is available in the Google Play App Store by searching “Steer Clear San Diego.” The League hopes to help train some of
the million programmers who are expected to be needed in the next 10 years. Classes are offered in Carmel Valley and at the Downtown Central Library. Taught by Java professionals employed locally by high-tech firms such as Qualcomm and Sony, teachers volunteer their time as teachers and mentors to the students. As a prerequisite for the continuing classes, interested students attend a week-long workshop. Check the workshop schedule at www.jointheleague.org/join. Financial aid is available.

All three are among the countless MiraCosta College graduates who have transferred to some of the top universities in the world. And all three underscore the success of MiraCosta students. “The education I got at MiraCosta College prepared me for Columbia,” said Williamson, who is pursuing his bachelor’s degree in political science. “Some of the professors I had at MiraCosta were just as good, if not better, than some of the professors I’ve had at Columbia. All of the instructors at MiraCosta are invested in making sure their students succeed.” It’s not just the instructors who are invested in ensuring MiraCosta College students succeed. Counselors at the Transfer Center are committed to helping students transition to a four-year college or university and making sure they are prepared for the rigorous upper division course work. Counselors in the Career Center assist students in learning the skills to create cover letters and resumes, then using these skills to seize volunteer and internship opportunities. This hands-on support worked for MiraCosta graduate Richard Huizar. Huizar graduated from MiraCosta College in 2014 as an honors scholar and is now a mechanical engineering major on track to earn his master’s degree. MiraCosta College, he said, prepared him well for his success at MIT, which has produced more than 80 Nobel laureates and nearly three-dozen astronauts. “MiraCosta College is an amazing place with a positive environment and excellent faculty,” said Huizar. “MiraCosta gave me the
opportunity to transfer to a great school and showed that I can do anything I want.” Elizabeth Egel graduated from MiraCosta in spring 2015 and transferred to UCLA the following fall. An applied mathematics major, she spent this summer as an intern with Northrup Grumman in Rancho Bernardo, learning the ins and outs of budgeting and business forecasting. “MiraCosta sets up students to transfer to any college they want to go to, and I had an wonderful experience there. The support services are beyond compare and the Honors Scholar Program really helped me develop,” she said, referring to a program comprising specialized courses designed to help highly motivated students reach their full academic potential. “MiraCosta College helped me get into UCLA and made the transition a lot easier.” In fact, when Egel graduates from UCLA in the spring of 2017, she will be one of the 48 percent of UC graduates with STEM degrees who began their postsecondary education at a community college. “If you’re getting a full ride to wherever you want to go, then of course starting out at a four-year college makes sense,” said Huizar, who served as a student ambassador at MiraCosta. “But if you’re uncertain about what you want to study or if you’re uncertain about what you want to do for a career and don’t have the ﬁnancing to cover your college education, MiraCosta is a better option. It can help you get to just about any four-year college or university.” MiraCosta College (760) 757.2121 | www.miracosta.edu | Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Oceanside Campus: 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside, CA 92056
MEASURE From Carmel Valley in the south to Camp Pendleton in the north, North San Diego County depends on MiraCosta College to prepare students for four-year college and future careers.
NORTH COAST - NOVEMBER 3, 2016 - PAGE A19
PREPARING STUDENTS TO TRANSFER
As the cost of attending University of California and State University schools rises, more students are starting their education at the community college level. MiraCosta College helps to ensure that students who canâ€™t afford the high price of a university still have the opportunity to succeed in college and careers.
PREPARING STUDENTS FOR CAREERS
MiraCosta College is an essential part of the North County economy. We are a critical partner to local employers in biotech, manufacturing, and other industries that help our area and economy thrive.
SERVING OUR VETERANS
MiraCosta provides job placement, job training and counseling to approximately 1,800 Navy, Marine and other military veterans and their families each year.
COST OF MEASURE MM To continue providing a high-quality education for local students, the MiraCosta Community College District has placed MEASURE MM, a local facilities bond measure, on the ballot this November. The measure may generate $455 million to upgrade our college and will cost approximately $14.99 per $100,000 of assessed value (not market value) per year.
THE MEASURE WOULD PROVIDE LOCALLY-CONTROLLED FUNDING TO: Improve the Veterans Center to provide job training, job placement, counseling and support services Upgrade career training facilities for science, health care, technology and skilled trades Update instructional technology for improved student learning in core subjects like math, science and technology Improve access for students with disabilities Repair or replace leaky roofs, worn-out ďŹ‚oors and restrooms, old rusty plumbing and faulty electrical systems Update science centers and labs to allow for state-of-the-art courses in biology, chemistry and physical sciences
FISCAL ACCOUNTABILITY WOULD BE REQUIRED All funds would stay in our community to support our local community college and students No funds could be taken by the State No funds could be spent on salaries or pensions

OUR READERS WRITE Open letter to recently retired physics teacher William Harvie Dear Mr. Harvie, “My powers are ordinary. Only my application brings me success.” – The smartest man to walk the earth, Sir Isaac Newton Your dedication has inspired thousands. Your decades spent volunteering your time to this school has not gone unnoticed. You found the talents we were ignorant to. You made sure that each of our achievements, no matter how seemingly small, did not go unrecognized. You believed in us when we didn’t believe in ourselves. The honor was all ours, and We are good. Yours truly, Your Torrey Pines Falcon Physicists
Choice instead of ‘no choice’ without a CCA The letter published in this newspaper’s Oct. 27 issue titled, “There is no choice” regarding Community Choice Aggregation is a mishmash of mistruths and misinformation. The writer begins with an ominous warning that residents will be “forced” to join the CCA. In fact, should a CCA be implemented – which is far from certain since the City is only in the exploration phase – all customers (including residential, commercial, and industrial customers) currently receiving electric service from SDG&E, would be automatically enrolled in the program as provided by California state law (reference http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/general.aspx?id=2567). Customers who choose to opt out will remain SDG&E customers. The opt out mechanism was determined by the CPUC to be the most efficient and cost-effective CCA implementation method. The writer says he finds the “exploratory” aspect to be “short sighted.” His contention that no further proposals, negotiation or customer input will be required is simply untrue. The writer asserts the City Council will blindly accept whatever proposal – pricing, terms and conditions – is delivered by the CCA feasibility study contractor. This is wrong on more levels than space allows me to dispute. The author’s dismissal of competition as “specious nonsense” is perplexing? Although responsible for rate-setting, oversight and the safe and reliable delivery of electricity, the CPUC does not directly regulate “costs, profit margins, [or] reserves”. How private capital invested in SDG&E mitigates against “performance failure” when it didn’t work so well for the likes of Enron, PG&E and Chrysler is mystifying? The primary mission of a CCA is to serve its constituents (Solana Beach residents and local businesses) rather than maximizing shareholder profits. There is no economic or policy reason why a CCA cannot be a formidable competitive force in the energy marketplace. Also, the CCA as envisioned here, would be a public-private partnership rather than a City-operated entity.
The writer acknowledges he does not understand how a CCA “can be called competitive?” The answer is simple – consumer choice. Contrary to the writer’s claim, no resident will be “forced away from SDG&E.” Everyone’s electric bills will continue to come from SDG&E. The CCA will not displace SDG&E. CCA’s are focused solely on energy generation. Energy distribution (bringing electricity to your home or business), billing, and customer service would remain with SDG&E. From the consumer’s perspective, nothing changes – other than local accountability, expanded access to renewables, and potentially lower electricity prices. The writer’s closing remarks center on morality. Whether morality is a factor is a question best left to each individual consumer. No “particular morality of technology” would be imposed on our residents. Instead, a CCA provides individuals, as the writer argues, with the ability to make “choices based on their values.” Choice instead of “no choice” without a CCA. Robert Glatts Solana Beach
‘To vote, or not to vote?’ To vote, or not to vote, that is not the question. The question is how to vote. In the City of Del Mar there are six candidates running for three openings on the City Council, so you could vote for three candidates. However, you are under no legal obligation to vote for three candidates. What if your vote for your third choice resulted in that candidate being elected at the expense of your first choice? If that is not what you want, maybe you should not vote for three candidates. But please vote for one candidate, two candidates, or three candidates while being aware of the possibilities. Larry D. Brooks Del Mar
School districts thriving I am concerned about comments in recent articles published regarding our local school boards and those running for office. Subtle endorsements of inexperienced candidates have been printed in opinion columns, inaccurate information has been included in their comments and bios, and party line propaganda is being touted as fact. One would think the sky is falling in our districts. The truth is they are thriving as evidenced by balanced budgets and exceptional student performance! As a former school board member of Del Mar Union Elementary School District, CSBA Delegate Assembly, and parent in the San Dieguito Union High School District, I shudder when any candidate promises to start or stop a program or step in to “fix” a problem that may or may not exist. This kind of power does not rest with one individual board member. The role after hiring a superintendent is to participate in the governing of their schools by setting a vision and course collaboratively with all educational stakeholders. Their one vote bears the responsibility of being a
voice of reason setting direction. Both SDUHSD and DMUSD have balanced budgets with healthy reserves to weather volatile funding. They also have a majority of students consistently performing well above state and federal standards. I believe this is due to outstanding leadership and a commitment to excellence by all. I believe a good school board is bi-partisan and brings a healthy mix of perspectives and professions to the table to discuss issues in an open forum. It was surprising to read in last week’s Carmel Valley News an assertion that there is no credentialed teacher on board. DMUSD does have a current credentialed teacher on board - Trustee Kristin Gibson. Kristin is an adjunct faculty member at SDSU’s School of Teacher Education and supervises student teachers in classrooms throughout San Diego County! She and the current board members bring their collective talents to work cohesively together and work with all DMUSD leadership to maintain stability and establish healthy reserve levels in spite of fluctuating funding environments. Arguably, we have the best school districts in California! Our students thrive because we work together as a “village” to support their efforts and learning opportunities. Our teachers and administrators challenge themselves consistently to improve as a matter of culture, and our current school board members show integrity and understand their roles. Comischell Bradley
Who and What is this ‘Old Guard?’ There has been a lot of talk this election season about the “old guard” in Del Mar and how they have held back progress. In the same vein, this “old guard” is described as a small group of “anti-improvement” and “preserve the status quo” insiders. This got me to thinking. Who are these people and what has this “old guard” done to hold us back? Let’s get to the bottom of this! Perhaps this “old guard” are the ones who prevented Powerhouse Park from becoming a restaurant row in the early ‘80s. Some may not know that these “anti-improvement insiders” rallied the community against tremendous opposition to raise money and assist the city in buying the land that is now Powerhouse Park, a Del Mar jewel. But let’s get back to this “old guard.” They could be referring to the “old guard” who oversaw the creation and decades of enforcement of the Design Review Board (DRB). If you enjoy a glass of wine from your backyard deck as the sun sets, you have the DRB to thank. Your DRB experience may have been a time-consuming and possibly contentious process, but you have your enjoyable view protected. Also, if you have recently appraised your home or have seen your neighbor sell theirs, you have the DRB and this mysterious “old guard” to thank for the 3x-plus increase in property values over the last 20 years. These unnecessary regulations greatly escalated
NORTH COAST - NOVEMBER 3, 2016 - PAGE A23
OPINION: OUR READERS WRITE (CONTINUED) the value of your home. Regarding our downtown, this “old guard” could perhaps be the ones that created the anti-improvement regulations that helped oversee the total remodel of L’Auberge hotel. Or the ones that also watched the old out-of-date hotel at the south end of town turn into Hotel Indigo Del Mar (a pretty cool place if you haven’t been there). Or the ones that permitted the heavy tenting of Pacifica Del Mar to allow our residents “outdoor” seating year round. Or oversaw the streetscape improvements near the beach and Jimmy Durante. Or helped build the new state-of-the-art lifeguard tower. Or the complete remodel of Poseidon or the courtyard improvements next to Starbucks or the creation of the Tasting Room or right-sized sidewalk cafes…sorry, listing all of these anti-improvement improvements is tiring. Thanks “old guard.” Is Del Mar perfect? Definitely not. Do we intentionally move at a slower pace? Absolutely and that is a good thing, no, a GREAT thing. If you think an out-of-town developer is going to come into a lesser regulated town, build to a rational scale with community in mind, I invite you to check out some of the overbuilt ghost towns of Silicon Valley or even the viewless neighborhoods of Mission Beach. We don’t have that problem here in Del Mar. You know why? Must be that “old guard.” Tom Sohn Del Mar Design Review Board 2008-2012 (Chair 2012) Shores Park Advisory Committee 2014-Present (Vice-Chair)
Vote ‘Yes’ on Measure B for better housing opportunities, less traffic Having served on the SANDAG Board of Directors for about 10 years, including two years as Board Chairman, I can tell you that it is nonsensical to believe that stopping or limiting home construction will improve traffic. In fact, witness the past decade, new home construction is at historical lows and traffic has progressively gotten worse and worse because people are forced to commute long distances to jobs. We should support Measure B on the Nov.8 ballot specifically because it allows for greater home construction east of the I-15 taking some of the growth pressure off of our coastal communities in North San Diego County. Measure B is an important step towards relieving the supply and demand imbalance as it will provide housing that is affordable to the majority of San Diego families and residents, and is absolutely critical for San Diego’s current and future generations. Measure B has gone above and beyond what any project has done in the history of San Diego County and will also provide $16 million in road improvements and fully fund a new K-8 school. Additionally, this new community will not cost taxpayers a single cent and will privately pay for all road, fire, sewer, water and school improvements in the area. The “precedent” this project creates is the provision of well-planned, high-quality, affordable housing to address our regions current and
future housing needs. The North County Leadership Council has unanimously endorsed Measure B and I ask you all to support and vote for Measure B. Jerome Stocks Chairman, North County Leadership Council
Kristina Houck, Great journalist! I’m moved to write to you about your excellent reporter and journalist, Kristina Houck. It’s not often that one finds such great journalism in a small local newspaper. The Del Mar Times is that rare exception. As a longtime Del Mar resident, I have always anticipated receiving and reading the weekly issue of your newspaper...as do my neighbors. This Friday’s issue was outstanding. I was once again impressed with Ms. Houck’s great reporting, especially in this latest issue of the Del Mar Times (Oct. 27, 2016). Her article covering the Del Mar candidates was exceptional and informative. I have even changed my voting selection based on Kristina Houck’s in-depth, unbiased and factual article. I wish this country’s local and national news media were unbiased and factual like Ms. Houck’s journalism displays. Sadly, many larger news media and national journalists let their personal agendas and politics dictate what and how they report the news. I wish for the early days of those journalists who are guided by integrity akin to Walter Cronkite and others like him. In my opinion, Kristina Houck is one of those fine journalists. R. Paul Allen Del Mar
My notes: The facts on marijuana Marijuana, comes from the hemp plant, has chemicals called cannabinoids, and specifically the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol,(THC) that has psychoactive effects. Here are some properties that THC has in common with other addicting agents. 1)It acts on receptors in the brain that activates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine which is the messenger that activates the rewarding pathway, which is involved in pleasure and hence in craving or wanting, like other addicting agents such as nicotine, alcohol, and cocaine. All of these are very addictive substances and have their effects by releasing dopamine, the neurotransmitter involved with in craving and addiction. 2)Marijuana is associated in animals (mainly mouse studies) and in humans with rewarding and craving and withdrawal symptoms. 3)Marijuana is associated with higher risk of developing addiction and follow up studies on users suggest a greater chance of moving on to more addictive behavior and addiction to other agents, a possible gate way effect. 4) Chronic use is associated with apathy and lack of motivation and probably some depressive features. 5) Chronic use in younger school students has been associated with reduced motivation, lower grades and more drop out as compared to those who do not use marijuana, however
these are correlational studies, not prospective blinded clinical trials with long follow up. However animal studies show lack of motivation in constructed trial and tests. 6) Certainly users have many varied symptoms that support it as being a psychoactive drug, such as euphoria, psychic activation, reduced inhibition, feelings of calmness and relaxation, visual and auditory perceptual alterations, disorganized thoughts, anxiety, paranoia, agitation, and poor judgment. 7) It has also been used medically to benefit pain, nausea and some less completely studied benefits. The evidenced for tolerance is weak but probably present. The above are just a few facts to help with your understanding of marijuana and any decisions you may need to make about this most commonly abused illegal drug. Dee Silver M.D. Rancho Santa Fe
‘No’ on County Measure B The League of Women Voters supports policies that provide decent homes and a suitable living environment for all residents of San Diego County. Though the well-funded “Yes on A” campaign presents the Lilac Hills development as the answer to San Diego’s housing needs, it is not the solution. The League opposes Measure B and we ask you to do the same. The League of Women Voters believes this project is inconsistent with the County’s General Plan. Though the General Plan includes provisions for housing development, this project is not suitable for the location. This is a rural area of farm fields, lacking the infrastructure required for the proposed development of 1,746 homes. In the County’s General Plan, the area is zoned for 110 homes. Ballot-box land use planning falls far short of the systematic approach required for County land use decisions arrived at collaboratively with community planners. Don’t reward developers who choose to bypass this process. Join the League of Women Voters in voting No on Measure B!

Community should be represented, vote ‘Yes’ on Measure R Measure ‘R’ - Del Mar Right to Vote law would be a huge accomplishment ensuring our entire community will have a say concerning developments on properties over 25,000 sq. ft. only, which would change our Community Plan - Del Mar. City Governments - City Councils and developers hate “Right to Vote” laws. Because, without a public vote, City Councils can vote their interests and relationships first. Accordingly, opponents to Measure R continuously liken our Measure ‘R’ to the Encinitas Prop A., Right to Vote law which was passed three years ago. Exclaiming the Encinitas Prop A. Right to Vote law is endlessly in litigation costing hundreds of
thousands of dollars in defense litigation costs. Fact is - Encinitas Prop A., has never been sued/litigated! Additionally, opponents always try to comfort the public with the idea of a referendum if the City Council makes a decision repugnant to the community. Problem is, our community would have only 30 days to amass an infrastructure and costs sufficient to make all aware and gain sufficient signatures/petition. The pressure of time, money and effort within a very short time is an onerous one. With Measure ‘R’ there is sanity and time for our community to become fully informed and scheduled to a public vote as opposed to an all-out alert the evening of a bad decision by the City Council. Folks, our entire community should be represented, within a calm, fair and intelligent process...vote yes on Measure ‘R’. Congratulations in advance Del Mar. Arnold Wiesel Del Mar resident
No to Solyndra Beach Want to vote no on the risky power scheme to take away your reliable power provider and hand it over to some yet to be named LLC? Tough luck, you can’t - the City of Solana Beach just might make up your mind for you! If this risky scheme is so great why not let people opt in vs. mandatory enrollment in the program with no known way of getting out? Maybe because the people of Solana Beach have Google and they can look up the NoCal City of Hercules $9.5 million loss (East Bay Times ). A loss of just a fraction of this magnitude would bankrupt Solana Beach. I’m no fan of SDG&E but when I turn the lights on I don’t want to rely on Al’s Biofuel. They won’t let you vote, but you can (try) and pin down the Council candidates on their stand on the CCA before we become Solyndra Beach. Craig A. Nelson Solana Beach Disclosure: the writer is the former Chairman of the Solana Beach Budget & Finance Commission
Prop 64 a flawed bill Aside from serious consequences for youth (unlimited TV advertising to and only minor fines for sales to minors) Prop 64 poses a series of problems for our neighborhoods. It eliminates city rights to regulate, allowing six unlicensed marijuana plants per household, making every home a potential unregulated pot farm. It assumes growers and sellers will pay taxes while establishing another expensive State bureaucracy likely to eat up tax revenues in administrative and regulatory costs. It fails to establish impairment levels for DUIs, hampering law enforcement efforts to prevent drugged driving and traffic fatalities. Neighborhoods in states where pot has been legalized report reduced home values, property damage, rental destruction, growing stench, increased traffic, noise and drug dealing. Prop 64 is a flawed bill that will allow the drug industry to dictate to our communities and undermine our quality of life. Peggy Walker Solana Beach resident and drug prevention specialist

Opinion: Education propositions on the ballot
s a socially-liberal fiscal conservative (or a fiscally-conservative social liberal), I find myself in a bind at each election cycle. The Republican Party is too extreme on social issues, and the Democrats are too free with our hard-earned cash. So where does that leave us registered Independents (or No-Party-Preference people, as we’re officially called)? This newspaper’s policy prohibits opinion writers from publicly endorsing or opposing any candidate running for office, but we are permitted to opine about ballot propositions. And there are several education-related propositions on the ballot this year worth discussing. Given how I’ve defined myself in the first paragraph, readers would be correct to assume I oppose Proposition 51. Another gigantic General Obligation bond to build and modernize schools, Prop. 51 totals $9 billion and is financed primarily by the construction industry. An editorial in the Los Angeles Times opposed to Prop. 51 reasons: “Gov. Jerry Brown hasn’t had anything good to say about Proposition 51. ‘I am opposed to the developers’ $9-billion bond,’ he told The Times in February, referring archly to the construction industry’s role as the proposition’s main financier.” Brown also argued, the LA Times said, that it would “continue an inequitable system based on which school districts get to the application line fastest, not which ones need it the most.” The Legislative Analyst’s Office, according to the LA Times piece, stated that a bond such as this one “allows disparities based on school district property wealth, fails to target funding according to greatest need, results in excessive administrative complexity, and lacks adequate accountability mechanisms.” Proposition 51 deserves a “no” vote. No on Measure MM With Measure MM, local voters are faced with yet another General Obligation bond that affects them directly, through increased taxes based on property values.
Measure MM asks voters to approve a $455 million bond for the Mira Costa Community College District, to upgrade facilities that those opposed to the measure say is unnecessary for a community college district that has healthy reserves and a robust income stream. Estimates are that the 40-year bond would cost about $15 per $100,000 of assessed property value. Don’t be fooled by the existence of an independent citizens’ oversight committee. Once voters approve a measure like this, oversight committees have little power. One strong argument against Measure MM is the cumulative effect of another layer of taxpayer-funded bonds for schools. How many more of these GO bonds are voters willing to support? Taxpayers are already paying up to $30 per $100,000 of property value for San Dieguito Union High School District’s GO bond. School districts in Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Carlsbad also have GO bonds that homeowners are paying for. The Solana Beach School District, which historically has had one of the heftiest reserves of all school districts in the county, will have its own school bond on the ballot next week, as will the Cardiff School District. General Obligation bonds require a 55-percent passage instead of two-thirds. So everyone is jumping on the “free money” bandwagon. What’s disturbing about these measures is that much of the campaign financing comes from builders and construction-related industries, as well as school district employees and vendors, many of whom contribute money to campaign war chests but don’t live in the districts and would not be subject to the tax. No on Proposition 55 Proposition 55 represents a broken promise. Prop. 55 seeks to extend until 2030 what was promised under Proposition 30 in 2012 to be a temporary tax on individuals earning over $250,000 per year or couples
filing jointly who make more than $500,000 per year. Prop. 30’s purpose was to help the state recover from years of recession. The tax was to last six years only, ending in 2018. The bulk of the Prop. 30 money was for education, resulting in significant increases in school district budgets in recent years. If you think districts are still struggling, consider the 12.5 percent salary raise that San Dieguito recently gave each of its employees. The justification for this was that the district has plenty of money now and into the foreseeable future. San Dieguito recently boasted of a $4 million surplus. To be clear, I am not in the higher-taxation category – nor do I know many people who are. It’s the unfairness and the deception that drive me to oppose this measure. The “facts” that proponents push are cunningly worded. To say Prop. 55 “does not raise taxes on anyone” is technically true – because the tax on the wealthy is already in place. And when supporters say it would prevent $4 billion in cuts to education, that’s just twisting the truth. A “no” vote doesn’t cut funding – it ends extra funding that was intended to be temporary under Prop. 30. Furthermore, not all of this money would go to schools, as advertised. As if there’s even another good reason to oppose Prop. 55, consider an Oct. 26 Wall Street Journal op-ed by Joel Fox, former president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. “California’s public-pension problem is what really drives many of these campaigns,” Fox wrote. “State and local pensions are deeply in debt because of the generous giveaways elected officials have offered government workers. While the money for the taxes isn’t directly dedicated for pensions, new tax revenue can free up funds to cover local governments’ obligations to the state retirement system.” Millions of dollars from the Calif. Teachers Association are helping to fund Prop. 55. Backers also include Calif. State Controller Betty Yee, who issued a letter in support – mailed to Calif. voters on her official state letterhead. The wealthy made their sacrifices in 2012 and did their part to help the state through hard times. The state’s budget is now back on solid ground. This is just another money grab by special interests who don’t want to turn off the spigot.
Expert election analysis at RSF Democratic Club meeting Nov. 10 Two days after the historic general election, a panel of top San Diego-area political experts will provide post-election commentary and answer questions from the audience at the Nov. 10 meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club. Come and ask the experts about the races that interest you most. National, state and local candidates and ballot measures will be discussed. The distinguished panel includes three of the sharpest political minds in San Diego. Jennifer Tierney is a top political consultant whose clients include Toni Atkins and Todd Gloria. Professor
James Ingram, who teaches political science at San Diego State University, is an authority on the politics of the San Diego region.

As Gov. Jerry Brown said about Prop. 30 in 2014, “That’s a temporary tax and, to the extent I have anything to do with it, it will remain temporary.” Yes on Proposition 58 Under Proposition 58, according to the Legislative Analyst’s Office, “schools would no longer be required to teach English learners in English-only programs. Instead, schools could teach their English learners using a variety of programs, including bilingual programs.” The ballot states that Prop. 58 “authorizes school districts to establish dual-language immersion programs for both native and non-native English speakers.” While providing schools with flexibility, Prop. 58 preserves the requirement that public schools work to ensure that students have proficiency in English. English learners are defined as those students who are not fluent in English, and they represent about 20 percent of California’s student population. Of that 20 percent, the vast majority are native Spanish speakers. Supporters say Prop. 58 gives options to schools, parents and children, and lifts restrictions that have been in place since Proposition 227 passed in 1998. Prop. 227, according to the LAO, “generally requires English learners to be taught in English and restricts the use of bilingual programs.” Many education experts say English language immersion programs have been ineffective. In a Huffington Post piece co-authored by local UCSD professor Ana Celia Zentella, she and her associates say that dismantling bilingual education in 1998 under Proposition 227 did not result in significant improvement in English language development. “Bilingual education provides the most effective way to learn English while students strengthen their home language,” say the authors. Zentella, who is Professor Emerita in UCSD’s Department of Ethnic Studies, states in the op-ed, “The bill would authorize parents or legal guardians of all pupils enrolled in the school ‘to choose a language acquisition program that best suits their child’ from among many well-established educational methods.” A “no” vote, the authors say, “confines children to a single language.” Sr. Education Writer Marsha Sutton can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Gwilliam said over the next few months Kilroy will also begin working on the off-site traffic signal upgrades and mitigations. At 10 intersections between Mango Drive and Townsgate Drive, they will be installing adaptive control systems which helps to keep traffic moving by allowing emergency responders to preempt traffic lights well before they approach them. The work will involve limited digging as it mostly involves putting new technology into the cabinets and most of the work will be done at night, Gwilliam said. Kilroy expects to begin work on project driveways, new turn lanes and turn pockets on Del Mar Heights and El Camino Real in February 2017, tentatively lasting until spring or early summer. Project mitigation of a new signal at Carmel Creek and Del Mar Trails Road is scheduled to begin in March 2017. As the grading and construction begins, Gwilliam said Kilroy is committed to being open about the process and responsive to residents’ concerns.

community center, relocation of parking lot areas and construction of a new plaza for the second phase. Preliminary design plans were completed in 2010, with a total estimated cost at $4.6 million for park improvements and $800,000 for community center improvements. Initially, the council intended to use funds from the city’s redevelopment agency to renovate the park and community center, including constructing the skate park, but Gov. Jerry Brown abolished redevelopment agencies in 2011 and the plans have since been on hold. With support from community members, the city completed the construction of the Veterans Honor Courtyard at La Colonia Park, which was also first proposed as part of the planned renovations of the park and community center. The project was funded with city general funds, a county grant, and money raised from donor tiles. The Veterans Honor Courtyard was dedicated in a ceremony last Memorial Day. Now, with support from a group of community members led by the city’s Parks and Recreation Commission, the city is moving forward with the skate park portion of the project. “I have lived in Solana Beach for 30 years and have witnessed our city’s need for a skate park,” resident Lenore Dale said in a letter to the city. “My children had no place to skate except Encinitas YMCA and it’s time for their children to have a local skate park.” The estimated cost for the skate park in 2010 was $250,000. As a standalone project, City Engineer Mo Sammak said the project is now estimated to cost about $400,000 to $450,000 for the skate park and minor but necessary modifications to the soccer field and perimeter pathway. In addition to the $300,000 allocated from a surplus fund, the Tony Hawk Foundation provided $5,000 for the project. “With approximately 4,000 skate parks in the nation, we are seeing lasting value in these facilities through their ability to draw teenagers and young adults off the streets and off their couches,” Alec Beck, the foundation’s programs director, said in a letter to the city. “Skate parks have shown to be an effective deterrent to other less desirable activities while supporting healthy and habitual athletic recreation,” Beck said. “An investment in public recreation for young people helps establish active lifestyles early, when it is most important, and can lead to a lifetime of positive health impacts.” The city launched a fundraising campaign for the skateboarding section of the approved master plan with “Skateboard Day at La Colonia Park” on Sunday, Oct. 9 at the park. “The outpouring of support at the recent skate park event at La Colonia Park demonstrated not only a clear service need, but community advocacy in action as well,” Beck said in his letter. “Definitely saw all the support at the event,” Linda Swindell, who serves on the Parks and Recreation Commission, said at the council meeting. “There’s a lot of community interest out there to do additional fundraising.” The Surfing Madonna Beach Run has pledged to donate $20,000 for the project. The city already received $1,000 from the Solana Beach Sunset 5K and “Skateboard Day at La Colonia Park” raised about $2,200. In addition, about $14,000 in surplus money for the Veterans Honor Courtyard is available. Community members in support of the project hope to raise the remaining funds. Supporters are already working with the Coastal Community Foundation to help raise funds for the skate park. For more information or to make a donation, visit http://coastalfoundation.org/programs/solana-beachskatepark-fund. “I think this is much needed,” Councilman Mike Nichols said. “The kids need a place to go so they’re not loitering down at Fletcher Cove,” Councilwoman Ginger Marshall added. “They should be loitering down at the skate park.”

Many have asked us to provide explanations either by e-mail or at the school board meeting. Unfortunately, we cannot discuss personnel matters in open session out of respect for individual privacy,” Dill continued. “We will be having a discussion on our resignation policy, but not on the specific details of any particular employee.” In a message to Falcon families, TPHS Principal Rob Coppo again reiterated that the announcement was a “sincere surprise” and assured students that a plan is in place to keep the class running effectively. Coppo stated that he understood that the transition will be challenging and just how missed Harvie would be. “I visited his classroom often over my years here at Torrey Pines and always enjoyed watching him teach,” Coppo wrote. “He is an exceptional educator and we were very lucky to

have him a part of our school for so long.” In the days following the shocking retirement, the campus was “rife with panic, rumors and overall confused sadness” one student wrote. No one could comprehend how a teacher who had so positively affected countless students would just leave when one of his regular mantras had been that he would be teaching their children in 20 years. Students created and distributed t-shirts in Harvie’s honor and started an online petition to “Bring Harvie Back” that generated 576 signatures. On the petition, both current and former students praised him as the best teacher they had ever had and the only person qualified to teach the physics curriculum — the class’ textbook was an original collection of hundreds of pages of Harvie’s own handwritten notes that had been utilized by universities such as UCLA and MIT. “Harvie was no doubt the most influential teacher I had, even more so than my professors at USC,” wrote one former student. “I still tell stories of this guy to people at work. In fact, I wouldn’t be where I work if I hadn’t had Harvie. He opened my eyes to the beauty of physics, and now I myself have become a mechanical engineer
working on airplanes. Before his class, I had never felt so passionate about a subject. But his unique teaching style was unlike anything I had ever seen.” Harvie was known for more than just his curriculum but for his motivational speeches. Students recalled Harvie-isms like “The first time you settle for second place is the last time you will ever stand on the podium” or “The smartest people in the world are sitting in this room and to be clear, I’m standing.” “Students often credit their success in the difficult course to Harvie’s unwavering belief in his students, often more than they believe in themselves,” one student wrote. One student stated it simply: “There is no TP without Harvie.” SDUHSD Board Vice President Joyce Dalessandro, whose daughter was a student of Harvie’s, said she, too, was broken-hearted over his retirement. “Mr. Harvie decided to retire. No one asked him to do so. There is no hidden agenda here,” wrote Dalessandro in a response to students and parents. “For whatever personal reasons he may have, no matter that it defies everything any of us thought we knew about him — he simply retired.” Mr. Harvie did not respond to requests for comment.

‘Bing Crosby’ season to begin with patriotic celebration BY KELLEY CARLSON el Mar racetrack’s upcoming fall meet will be a star-studded affair. The “Bing Crosby” season will kick off with a patriotic celebration on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, and will continue through Dec. 4.

For Opening Day, the seaside oval will honor the nation’s military with a “Veterans Day Salute” and other themed activities. “We expect a real fun day,” said Chris Bahr, director of events and promotions, who noted that the Hollywood theme of the last two years was changed to correspond with the holiday.

Among the familiar activities are: College Day: On Nov. 19, students who present their ID will receive free admission and exclusive access to the college tailgate party in the Red Star Cafe.

Fun Run on Nov. 24. Registration begins at 7 a.m.; at 8 a.m., participants run a lap around the racetrack and finish in the winners circle, where they have their pictures taken. There are other activities that morning, as well, such as the Helen Woodward Puppy Race, arts and crafts booths, face painting, entertainers and games. For those who register by Nov. 18, the cost is $22 for adults, $12 for children ages 4-15, and free for kids 3 and younger. Those who wish to enjoy holiday fare during the races can partake in a three-course meal and bottomless mimosas or champagne.

paddock will be given away Dec. 3. Both are free with paid admission. Daybreak at Del Mar: Racing fans can watch morning workouts while eating breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturdays in the Clubhouse Terrace Restaurant. Admission is free, but there is a $10 parking fee. Taste of the Turf Club: Formerly known as Bing + Bubbles + Brunch, Chef Brian Malarkey will prepare different menus each week, composed of an appetizer, entree, dessert and bottomless mimosas or Chandon. Cost is $100 per person, which also includes seating at a Turf Club table. “Freebies” and discounts: Every Sunday is “Free & Fun,” as Diamond Club members receive free Stretch Run admission; a free program; a free seat; and half price on domestic drafts, Bloody Marys and Champagne Splits. Seniors 62 and older receive the same freebies on Thursdays, with a valid ID. And as with past meets, there will be a “Pony Express” deal ($11 for a roundtrip Coaster ride and admission); and “30-for-20,” in which people can buy $30 of script for $20 that can be used for food and beverages at the track. Lucky stars This season, there will be a new twist to the Pick Six bet, which costs $2 and involves selecting the winners of the last six races of the day on the card – a not-so-easy feat. “(The Pick Six) has been very popular over the years, and has the

biggest payout,” Bahr noted. The Pick Six now will offer a “Single Ticket Jackpot,” in which those picking all six winners will get 70 percent of the pool, but instead of the remaining 30 percent going to those with consolation tickets (five of six winners) as in the standard Pick Six, it will be split two ways. Those with consolation tickets will be paid 15 percent of the pool, while the final 15 percent will be carried forward until there is one Pick Six winning ticket, at which time that day’s total Pick Six pool – along with the complete carryover pool – will be paid to that winner. “While the Pick Six used to be the only exotic wagering game in town, the landscape has changed and players are looking for new bet concepts,” Del Mar President and Chief Executive Officer Joe Harper said. “We believe the ‘Single Ticket Jackpot’ will reinvigorate California’s Pick Six and produce some life-changing payouts.” To get some handicapping tips, racegoers can attend Weekend Handicapping Seminars in the Seaside Terrace; or Newcomers Seminars every race day, one hour before first post in the Plaza de Mexico. More advanced bettors may want to test their skills in the Handicapping Challenge, set for Nov. 12-13, with $125,000 in prizes. It’s a $4,000 buy-in, with $2,500 designated for a live bankroll and $1,500 toward the prize pool. Contact Bahr at firstname.lastname@example.org. “We have planned really great events that appeal to everyone (this season),” Bahr said. “We’re looking forward to having a great meet.”

This is the first time she was directly asked to exhibit several sculptures. “It allows me to get my work out for art galleries to see it, for collectors to see it,” Morhous said. With her mother an artist, Morhous developed a passion for art at a young age. The New York

native earned her master’s degree in fine art and continued her studies at Stanley Hayter’s Atelier 17 in Paris. She worked as a professional etcher and printmaker in Los
Angeles for more than a decade before moving to Del Mar in 1986. Since then, she has focused on sculpting. Working out of her Del Mar home, Morhous’ artwork is embedded in social critique, political and cultural issues. She is inspired by the human figure and emotions. Her work can be found in public and private collections in the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. “I’ve always loved sculpting,” Morhous said. “It’s who I am; it’s what I do.”
From longtime artists like Morhous, to those new to the art scene, Art San Diego features more than 500 leading contemporary artists, museum exhibitions, art labs, events and talks focused on collecting. Thomsen Walker, who has lived in Solana Beach for four years, is making her debut at Art San Diego this year. “I’m so excited and really honored to be a part of Art San Diego,” Thomsen Walker said. Although an artist since childhood, Thomsen Walker didn’t
begin to pursue a career as an artist until a year and a half ago. Now owner of Purely Zen Art, Thomsen Walker specializes in watercolor and sells original paintings, prints, note cards and stationary on her website. “It never occurred to me that I could do what I absolutely adore and love all day long,” said Thomsen Walker, who also teaches meditation. Her art was pushed into the spotlight when a friend shared her work on social media. “It’s going to be really exciting to see so many different artists and different mediums and different formats,” Thomsen Walker said about Art San Diego. “It’s so many different people expressing themselves in individual ways.” One-day tickets for Art San Diego cost $20 online and $25 at the door for general admission. For opening night, tickets are priced at $75 online and $85 at the door. Proceeds from opening night ticket sales go directly to the Museum of Contemporary Art.

ON VIEW THROUGH JANUARY 2, 2017 The Uses of Photography examines a constellation of artists who were based in San Diego between the late 1960s and the mid-1980s and whose experiments with photography opened the medium to a profusion of new strategies and subjects. These artists sought artistic media and formats adequate to address their turbulent era and its pressing questions.

Bestselling author Alice Hoffman to speak at RSF Library Guild event Nov. 10 Author lunch to be held at the RSF Golf Club BY LOIS ALTER MARK “As a reader, the books I’ve really loved are the ones that helped me through something,” said bestselling author Alice Hoffman. “And, as a writer, there’s nothing more special than when someone feels that way about a book I’ve written.” There’s little doubt thousands of readers will be feeling that way after reading her new novel, “Faithful,” which she will be talking about on Nov. 10 at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club. This Author Lunch is presented by the Rancho Santa Fe Library Guild, in partnership with Warwick’s. “Faithful” is the story of Shelby, a Long Island, New York teenager whose life is changed forever after she survives a car accident which destroys her best friend’s future. The book will be published on Nov. 1. “I’d been working on ‘Faithful’ for a while, put it away to write three big historical novels but kept coming back to it because I was really interested in Shelby,” said Hoffman. “I wasn’t sure what the story was but I knew I was writing about someone who had survivor’s guilt.” Fans of Hoffman’s work know that survivorship is a recurring theme in her books and one that the author herself is quick to acknowledge. “I think it’s because of my grandparents, who came from Russia and had such a hard life – and yet they survived,” explained Hoffman. “I was always in awe of what they managed to deal with and accomplish. I’m also a breast cancer survivor and ever since then have been even more fascinated by the idea of why one person lives and one person dies. “Sometimes you don’t even know why you’ve written a book until you’re finished,” continued Hoffman. “Maybe I was feeling guilty about surviving cancer when other people close to me had not survived.” Hoffman also credits Anne Frank’s “The Diary of a Young Girl” as a major influence on her subject matter. “It was huge,” she said. “I think when
The cover of “Faithful” by Alice Hoffman you read that book at a young age, it’s so powerful. It has this incredible voice of a girl who’s so positive and so filled with life. Also, it really makes you think about the idea of who survives and who doesn’t. It’s kind of the big mystery and the big question.” Mystery is another signature of Hoffman’s writing – but more in the way of magic than thriller. “That’s from what I read growing up. I loved anything with magic. I loved fairy tales, I loved myths, I loved my grandmother’s stories and folk tales – that’s what I gravitated to,” she said. “The themes of fairy tales are so interesting psychologically and they’re actually so adult. They allow kids to subconsciously understand the deeper meaning of finding themselves and going through dangerous paths to become heroic.” Hoffman’s characters have shown their own heroism in so many different ways – some quite ordinary, others quite extraordinary – in her 25 novels, three books of short fiction and eight books for children and young adults. “I really try hard not to write from reality. I’m not that
interested in reality as either a reader or a writer,” she laughed. “Emotionally, true things do come out and I always think in some way I’m sort of writing about myself or my questions or what I’m interested in, but I don’t want to write about real people or real things. I really want to write from my imagination.” Over the past 40 years, Hoffman’s imagination has taken her readers all over the world and back and forth in time, yet one thing has remained consistent – her voice. “I had a professor who always said that every writer has a single voice and that nobody else can write like you,” she said. “And that’s true. It’s your voice. It’s like a fingerprint.” In “Faithful,” Hoffman’s voice especially comes through Shelby’s mother, a character who may physically spend more time in the background but whose love and emotional support are always very much present. “I feel very motherly toward Shelby,” admitted Hoffman. “In the end, I think I was really writing about this mother-daughter relationship. That, to me, is the heart of the book.” She went on, “I’ve been a mother and I’ve been a daughter, and I think I was a worse daughter than I was a mother. But even though we fought and, at times, didn’t even talk to each other, I always knew my mother was on my side. Always.” Hoffman believes that the things we hate our mothers for when we’re young are often the same things we admire and respect about them when we get older. Her wish for this book is that mothers and daughters will read it together to see and understand each other’s side. “I always feel like if you have one person standing by you, that’s all you really need,” she said. Hoffman will be speaking at the Author Lunch at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club on Nov. 10 at 11:30 a.m. Proceeds will benefit the Rancho Santa Fe Library.

The San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health Center team: Dr. Allen Richburg, Dr. Jeff Anthony, Doreen and Dave Hall.
Pilates strengthens San Diego Sports Medicine’s program BY KAREN BILLING ave and Doreen Hall have been instrumental in making Pilates a part of the physical therapy program at San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health Center (SDSM) in Sorrento Valley. For 15 years, the Halls have found incredible success with their Pilates People physical therapy patients and they are excited that the larger clinic at SDSM gives them more exposure and the ability to help heal more people. San Diego Sports Medicine was founded in 1980, with care focused not only on the treatment of injuries but individualized patient education and lifestyle improvements to attain “optimal health and wellness.” Over the years, the center’s physicians have worked with athletes from the U.S. Olympic Training Center, San Diego State University, Grossmont College, U.S. National Men’s and Women’s Rugby teams, Canyon Crest Academy, Cathedral Catholic, Santa Fe Christian, Bishop’s and Torrey Pines High School, just to name a few. The Halls owned Pilates People, which for 10 years was a fixture in Torrey Hills Center before moving to Sorrento Valley. Their company was acquired by SDSM in May 2016 and they moved their entire operation into SDSM’s facility, which is three to four times bigger than where they were. “We have had a physical therapy program for many years and always like to stay current and keep up with the most effective techniques,” said Dr. Jeff Anthony, partner at San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health Center. “We wanted to make a change in our program and looked into Pilates as a viable adjunct to our service. We brought in Dave and Doreen, who not only do physical therapy, but also have a wealth of experience in Pilates.” Doreen is now the director of physical therapy and Dave serves as the director of Pilates and wellness. An underutilized area at the center was revamped into a Pilates studio complete with reformers, chairs and barrels. “It’s an interesting clientele and that made us really excited about the move,” Dave said
about the opportunity to work with high school, college and Olympic athletes. “They bring in a lot of young athletes and it has allowed us to tap into that group. We now offer services like high-level fitness training, injury rehabilitation and ‘heal your back’ classes for people with chronic back issues.” SDSM offers Pilates-based physical therapy for any orthopedic injury. Doreen said Pilates lends itself well to rehabilitation as the exercises are inherently therapeutic, they incorporate so many parts of the body and the movements are easily modified for different levels of abilities. “It turns physical therapy into a whole body approach,” Doreen said, noting they work to correct underlying causes of injuries to create better outcomes. “Physical Therapy and Pilates are a natural fit to help patients improve range of motion, strength and function while recovering from injury or during post-operative surgery recovery,” said Dr. Allen Richburg, San Diego Sports Medicine’s director of athletic medicine. “I have had many patients give compliments about the help they have gained from the combination of physical therapy and Pilates.” Anthony said he has heard comments especially from patients with lower back pain, who have been able to return to activities with “a renewed vigor.” “Many patients, after finishing the prescribed therapy program continue to do Pilates on their own as health maintenance and prevention,” Anthony said. “I look forward to continued success with the utilization of Pilates.” As Anthony noted, there is a full schedule of Pilates classes offered in the studio throughout the week, more information is available at pilates people.com/ physical-therapy. San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health Center is located at 4010 Sorrento Valley Blvd, suite 300, San Diego, 92121.

Fresh Brothers hopes to be big slice of the community BY KAREN BILLING resh Brothers Pizza opened in the Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch on Oct. 26, just in time for Halloween, the biggest pizza day of the year followed by the Super Bowl. “I’m ecstatic with the way the new store in Carmel Valley has turned out. This is a neat store for us because we’re surrounded by schools,” said founder and CEO Adam Goldberg. “We’re a community pizza place so we couldn’t be better strategically located.” The Pacific Highlands Ranch store marks Fresh Brothers expansion into the San Diego region — they have 14 locations throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. After 15 years in the television entertainment industry, Goldberg and his wife Debbie opened their first Fresh Brothers in 2008. The name references where it all began for Goldberg, working in his brother Scott’s pizzeria in Indiana, learning the trade with his hands in the sauce and delivering pies. Scott Goldberg was on hand for the opening and is heavily involved in training the staff, many of whom are neighborhood students. “We take a lot of pride in

Goldberg said what sets Fresh Brothers apart is its high-end product — there are no additives, no preservatives and no GMOs and they are known for their excellent quality, fresh California tomatoes,
high-end mozzarella cheese and all-natural pepperoni. While they do offer deep-dish, many of their pizzas are thin-crust, with skinny and “mega-grain” options. The Fresh Kids Special features a sauce created by Goldberg’s wife Debbie that

with special diets, Fresh Brothers offers an extensive gluten-free menu, as well as vegan options. Every effort is taken to make Fresh Brothers a safe place for those who have allergies — it is a nut-free environment. With all of their locations, Goldberg said they look to become deeply integrated into the neighborhood by sponsoring local sports teams and fundraising for local schools, churches, temples and all kinds of organizations. Fresh Brothers has wasted no time in making community connections: On Nov. 2 they hosted a “Pay What You Want” fundraiser with Ashley Falls, Sage Canyon and Carmel Del Mar schools. Families order whatever they want off the menu, select their price and 100 percent of the proceeds goes back to the school — it is typically a very successful fundraiser in all of their stores. “Giving back and getting involved with the community is hugely important to us,” Goldberg said.

If I Was A Bird kids yoga studio opens in Flower Hill BY KAREN BILLING f I Was A Bird Yoga opened in Flower Hill Promenade on Nov. 1, bringing the benefits of yoga to the younger set in a unique and fun way. If I Was A Bird classes are designed for babies and toddlers to tweens, teens and families and each one-hour, 15-minute class includes a playful yoga practice, as well as an art project and a healthy snack. “Even though it is playful, they are getting a real yoga program,” said founder Tiffany Gullberg. In every class, kids stretch, breathe and work on their posture and balance, going through a steady, structured flow ending with a cool-down and peaceful relaxation. Gullberg said kids love the relaxation part of the practice, in which they get a blanket, lavender oil on their foreheads and optional massage therapy from the teacher. If I Was A Bird will celebrate the opening of the new studio with a week’s worth of free classes Nov. 7-13. Gullberg started teaching yoga at Core Power Yoga 10 years ago and, after she had her first daughter, it naturally led to practicing with children. She winged it in her first class at a daycare center. “I really loved it, I had goosebumps,” Gullberg said. “It was just really joyful and there was so much magic to it. The very first class I taught, I knew it was what I was supposed to do with my life.” Four years ago, she opened her first studio in Point Loma, and it has now grown to include one other location in San Diego, in addition to the new Flower Hill studio.
If I Was A Bird Yoga owner and founder Tiffany Gullberg with her daughters Juliet and Pearl. She has crafted a thoughtful kids yoga program that infuses fun and educational learning with mindfulness and relaxation. Kids learn about a different part of the world in every class and do a corresponding craft. As an example over the holidays, the kids will visit Plymouth Rock and the Arctic Ice. During the yoga practice set to music, children use props
like colorful scarves, parachutes, instruments and bubbles. “It’s a peaceful yoga practice with sprinkles of playful,” Gullberg said of the classes for Tots and Me (nine months to 3 years), kids ages 2-5, and kids ages 5-8. For the tweens and teens, Gullberg said yoga is a great complement for all of their daily

activities. Classes include popular music and positive themes which help build a healthy foundation for the stressful tween/teen years. Gullberg enjoys that “magic” of kids yoga while still loving teaching adult yoga classes at Core Power — she has the earliest morning adult classes six times a week. She won’t say which she prefers best, as like any good yogi, it’s all about finding balance. “Teaching the kids is my passion,” Gullberg said, noting that she is now teaching some of her longtime adult yoga clients’ children, which has been very fun. If I Was A Bird offers a “drop-and-shop” service at Flower Hill where children can be dropped off for open art and creative play — it’s not the full signature yoga class, but it will feature some yoga movement. On weekends, the studio offers two-hour specialty workshops on different themes. Del Mar’s first workshop is a Katy Perry event on Nov. 11, followed by American Girl yoga event on Nov. 19 and a Star Wars yoga workshop on Nov. 26. Gullberg is also hosting Thanksgiving break yoga camps on Nov. 21-23 and holiday break camps in December. The studio is available for birthday parties. All of the classes also sync with classes at Flower Hill’s Core Power Yoga, so adults can drop off their kids for yoga while they take a class of their own. Those interested in If I Was A Bird’s complimentary classes Nov. 7-13 must book classes in advance by calling (858)775-2913 or emailing Tiffany@ifiwasabirdyoga.com.

Pastor Jeff Gonzalez and Rick Warren at the new Saddleback at CCA.
Ready to serve New Saddleback Church opens in Carmel Valley led by former Marine BY KAREN BILLING Saddleback Church, founded by Pastor Rick and Kay Warren, launched its newest campus in San Diego on Sunday, Oct. 23. Warren, senior pastor of Saddleback and author of “The Purpose Driven Life” was there to celebrate the opening of his 17th campus that will meet weekly at Canyon Crest Academy. Everyone, no matter what their background, faith journey or need is welcome to attend Saddleback, said the San Diego campus’ Pastor Jeff Gonzalez. At the first Sunday, there were over 1,600 people in attendance between the two services inside the CCA auditorium, the outdoor service and the student ministries. “It was amazing,” Gonzalez said. “There are so many great churches in San Diego and I just feel privileged and honored that 1,600 of my neighbors decided to come out and be there for the historic launch of the newest Saddleback campus.” “Saddleback San Diego is one we’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” Warren said. “We have members who drive every week from San Diego to our other campuses…We’ve been waiting for the right pastor.” Gonzalez is a former Marine who served over 20 years in the Marine Corps and did four combat tours, two in Iraq and two in Afghanistan.

Flour Power: Fall Baking Primer – Part 2
rior to the Neolithic period, humans had a steady diet of meat, wild game, seeds, nuts, berries and vegetables, while wheat and other grains containing gluten weren’t cultivated until 9500 B.C. Relative newbies on the evolutionary food block, grains were foreign to the cave dweller gut, and anthropologists surmised that the primal intestines did not have time to adapt the mechanism for digesting this new food group. Consequently, some people ‘til this day have difficulty breaking down wheat into individual amino acids, reeking havoc on their compromised intestines. Let’s continue last week’s baking lesson with some more darlings of the gluten-free flour line-up, not only for Celiacs and those sensitive to the protein found in some common grains and their hybrids, but the rest of us, too, who like to experiment with different flavors, textures, and aromas in our autumn baking repertoires.
Coarse and grainy, hearty cornmeal with a golden hue adds a chewy bite and sweet taste to breads, muffins, polentas, and dumplings. Cook’s tip – dust pizza pans and baking sheets to prevent sticking along with adding an extra layer of flavor and crunch to the dish.
Hemp, the new soy, is popping up everywhere from milk drinks to trail mixes, and now in flour form from the mild-mannered, nutty-flavored ground seeds. Perishable, this flour needs to be refrigerated. When using sweet and hearty flour ground from oats, make sure it is certified non-gluten. Even still the presence of the protein avenin might trigger sensitivities. Oat flour adds a chewy nuttiness to quick breads, cookies, muffins and assorted cakes. Like hemp, oat flour has a short shelf life, so refrigerate to prevent it from turning rancid. Potato flour is heavy in texture with a strong, distinct spud flavor, which lends itself well to dumplings, biscuits, pot pie crusts, and other savory recipes. While the lighter, finer textured potato starch with a delicate flavor is best suited as a thickener for gravies and sauces, along with a leavening agent for assorted baked goods. The starch has a much longer shelf life than its flour counterpart. Flour made from seeds of the Incan mother grain quinoa adds a vegetarian protein oomph, and nutty richness to cookies, muffins, quick breads and pancake batters. High fiber coconut flour ground from the “meat” of the coconut after the fat has
D N A R G
been removed still retains its tropical flavor. Since coconut flour is not grain-based (it’s the chewy white flesh from the seed of the palm tree), it has a low carb content with a load of healthy fats (medium chain saturated fatty acids), and non-inflammatory properties, the latter due to the scarcity of omega-6’s abundant in other seed and nut flours. So coconut up with everything from fruit and nut muffins and scones with lemon, poppy seed, rhubarb, blueberries, bananas and walnuts to sweet flatbreads, crepes, coconut-crusted coating for fish, chicken or veggies, sweet breakfast pizzas and other Paleo-inspired treats. Almond flour or meal, a finely ground powder from raw almonds that makes tasty tender cakes and flaky pastries should be used in moderation for the following reasons: 1) It contains a load of inflammatory polyunsaturated fatty acids and enzyme inhibitors that can tinker with digestion, thyroid function, metabolism and hormone production; 2) It has a dense concentration of pure almonds, which makes it difficult to rejigger a recipe when substituting almond flour for baking flour; 3) While protein-packed, it also has a load of fat. Since one cup of ground almond flour contains about 100 almonds (and most recipes call for two or three cups), that’s over 2,000 calories from the flour component alone. So this would not be the best choice for the weight-conscious; 4) Since the fatty acids in almond fat are not heat stable they can easily oxidize and release harmful free radicals. So use low temperatures and adjust baking times.

Cashew Ginger Laddu One of my favorite flourless delights is made from gram or chickpea flour (referenced in Lesson 1), and as an added boon doesn’t require baking. This celebratory melt-in-your-mouth treat, known as Laddu from the southern region of India, gives an excuse to celebrate anytime. 1 cup gram (chickpea) flour ■ Ingredients: 1/3 cup powdered (Confectioner’s) sugar 5-6 tablespoons ghee butter (melted) 1/3 cup roasted cashews (crushed) 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder ■ Method: In a large pan, dry roast flour over low heat, stirring for about 10 minutes, until golden and exudes an aromatic fragrance. Add ghee butter and continue stirring for about 3 minutes until well blended. Remove from heat, let cool, blend in sugar, spices and nuts. Roll into walnut-size balls, coat with shredded coconut, chopped nuts or cinnamon. Store in airtight containers. — firstname.lastname@example.org

New Research Study to Determine Whether Truckers Can Have Relaxed Sleeping Regulations It is well-known that trucking accidents are some of the most common and deadly across not just California but the
United States. According to government research, more than 30,000 individuals die on highways annually every single year, and accidents involving larger trucks are responsible for about 1 in 7 of those fatalities. Federal trucking regulations have been a focus of the national attention over the last 20 years, and a new research study to be completed by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute will determine whether more freedom and ﬂexibility could be infused into those regulations without impacting safety. The new research study is part of a partnership with the Federal Motor

Carrier Safety Administration, and it will explore the experiences of 200 long-haul truck drivers who will not be required to commit to the consecutive 8 hour sleeping requirement in their truck cab. Recent news stories such as the Walmart driver who seriously injured comedian Tracy Morgan in New Jersey have led Congress and members of the public to be more concerned about trucker safety. One of the most important regulations being explored in this study is that involving sleeper berths. Compartments in the truck cabs where drivers sleep are currently an important part of their rest procedure. In 2008, changes were made
to the law to require that truckers spend a minimum of 8 of their 10 hours of in-cab requirement in the berth during just one period. The research study will explore whether or not it makes a difference to have 8 hours in one particular period or not. If you or someone you know has been injured in a trucking accident, getting medical help as soon as possible could make a big difference on your ability to heal and move on with your life.

Malin Burnham ‘Makes Waves’ at National Charity League San Diego Del Norte Chapter meeting Malin Burnham, author of the newly released book “Community Before Self, Seventy Years of Making Waves,” addressed over 200 members of the San Diego Del Norte Chapter of National Charity League, Inc. (NCL, Inc.) at their Chapter meeting on Oct.9 at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club. Burnham encouraged the audience with an inspirational message about living a life filled with purposeful giving and integrity. “We were thrilled to hear from Mr. Burnham who echos our theme of ‘Making Waves’ in the community by giving time and effort to improve the lives of others,” said Anne Woolson, president San Diego Del Norte NCL. “It was an honor for him to inspire the mothers and daughters of our Chapter who have committed to a six-year program of serving a variety of philanthropies in our community to do just that.” “It was a pleasure sharing what I have learned over the years with these teams of dedicated mothers and daughters,” said Burnham. “The impact of their commitment to put ‘Community Before Self’ will surely serve to enhance the lives of those in San Diego for years to come.” The San Diego Del Norte Chapter officially supports 26 philanthropies and consistently logs more than 9,000 hours of community service hours each year — 75 percent of these hours are served onsite as mother-daughter teams. Burnham is a notable successful businessman, sailor and philanthropist. His charitable and civic involvements include: The Malin Burnham Center for Civic Engagement, the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute and the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate. Burnham is a former Trustee of Stanford University and President of America’s Cup Organizing Committee. National Charity League, Inc. (NCL, Inc.) is a non-profit national organization of mothers and daughters who join together in community involvement within local chapters throughout the United States. Its goal is to foster a sense of community responsibility and strengthen the mother-daughter relationship. Daughters participate in a six-year program of philanthropic work, educational activities and cultural events. For more information, visit nclsandiegodelnorte.org.

deployed — he wanted to give back and share what had helped him and his family. “It felt good serving others,” Gonzalez said. A father of four children, including a son with cerebral palsy, Gonzalez credits his “super hero” wife Christine for holding it all together throughout his deployments. After his second tour in Afghanistan, Gonzalez finished his degree, retired from active duty and was hired to lead the outreach ministry at Southwest Church in the Coachella Valley. He said he has a real heart for working in the community, meeting the needs of the hopeless and people who don’t have a voice. He served at Southwest Church for three years before Warren came calling about Gonzalez helping him fulfill a longtime dream of opening a church in San Diego. “I said ‘Me? I’m just a regular guy’ and he said ‘Exactly. You are.’ I told him I would be honored to be the pastor of a neighborhood, family church,” Gonzalez said.

The service also includes live, contemporary music and attendees have the option to sit either inside or outside. Gonzalez said that he is very grateful for the cooperation of the Canyon Crest Academy administration and CCA Foundation and hopes that they can develop a strong partnership. “We want the best for our community and our kids,” Gonzalez said. “We aren’t just tenants…We are Carmel Valley.” Saddleback Church San Diego’s Sunday service times are 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. at Canyon Crest Academy, 5951 Village Center Loop Road, (Carmel Valley) 92130.
