Inspirational speeches motivate students at TED event BY DIANE WELCH Twentieth century visionary Buckminster Fuller once said, “We are called to be architects of the future...” and this was the message, and the theme, shared with over 400 students from schools around the county who convened at Canyon Crest Academy High School (CCA) on Nov. 18, Universal Children’s Day. Fuller’s phrase, “Architects of the future,” served as the foundation for this

inspirational day organized by TEDxYouth@San Diego, an independently organized TED event which showcased motivational speakers who shared their groundbreaking ideas, through entertaining and powerful messages. During four sessions, or stories as they were termed that day to accentuate the architectural theme, students engaged with big thinkers and doers of all ages and backgrounds who have pushed the boundaries

of their endeavors which span science, art, technology, environment, humanity and more. The thematic sessions metaphorically built from foundation to framing, construction to interior. Between each speaking session students rotated through 15 interactive exhibits in technology, health and environment, and personal reflection. These exhibits included a specially

BY KAREN BILLING There was still a sliver of hope last week that Del Mar Union School District’s Prop CC would inch closer to the 55 percent voter approval required to pass. Although final, official results have been held in a bit of limbo by the late counting of provisional and mail ballots, the initiative’s strongest advocates conceded defeat at the Nov. 14 school board meeting. (At presstime for this newspaper, with 90,000 mail/provisional ballots still to be counted, Prop CC had received 53.97 percent of voter approval. A 55 percent majority vote is needed to pass. Election results are ex-

pected to be officially certified by early December.) “We wish we could’ve brought it home for you,” said parent Suzanne Hall of the Quality Schools for Del Mar committee. The trustees praised the tireless grass roots efforts of parents such as Hall, Janet Handzel and Jen Charat, who organized town hall meetings, led phone bank nights, wrote letters to the editor and waved signs on sidewalks. “My biggest disappointment was not the negative or misleading press, but the thin parent support we had, the thin PTA support we had, the thin teacher supSee BOND, Page 6

Prop AA, the San Dieguito Union High School District’s $449 million bond, has now received the 55 percent majority vote needed to pass. As of Nov. 16, Prop AA has received 55.16 percent voter approval, according to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters. However, about 90,000 mail/provisional ballots are left to be counted so approval of the bond is not official yet.

Election results are expected to be certified by early December. San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Ken Noah said he is optimistic about the possibility of the final bond approval. “I am excited what the passage of the bond would mean for the district for generations to come,” Noah said.

Prop CC, the Del Mar Union School District $76.8 million bond, has now received 53.97 percent of voter approval. Prop EE, The MiraCosta Community College $497 million bond, has received 54.24 percent voter approval. Look for more results at www.

Solana Beach closes public beach access, allocates money to fix stairway

DAN CONWAY & ASSOCIATES, INC. a professional real estate group

BY CLAIRE HARLIN The City of Solana Beach has been working for years on plans to fix the large and deteriorating public stairwell leading from the public beach parking lot on South Sierra Avenue to the city’s southernmost beach, located just north of Del Mar Dog Beach. Those efforts were kicked into gear with the city manager’s emergency closure of the steps on Nov. 13 and the City Council’s Nov. 14 approval of $100,000 in reserve funding to complete plans. City Manager David Ott said he called the emergency closure, which could last up to a year or longer, when an inspection revealed that some of the concrete on the steps, built in the 1970s, had deteriorated to the point that reinforcement bars were being exposed. “As time goes on more and more of the concrete will sluff off and fall apart,” said city engineer Mo Sammack. “We’ve observed a higher level of deterioration in the last few months.” Sammack said the city had already installed chains on the broken railings to keep them together, and even the chains had begun to rust. In addition, PVC piping had been installed to replace broken railings in order to keep people from cutting their hands when using the rails. Signs and caution tape have been installed on the stairway, however, Sammack said locked security fences will soon follow, and lifeguards will be given the keys. The estimated cost to replace the stairway is between $1.5 and $1.7 million. Possible funding sources include the Beach In-

vestment Group (BIG), which may be able to do private fundraising, as well as beach restoration and sand mitigation fees the city collects from homeowners. The city is also looking at bond opportunities, as well as its 2 percent portion of a tourism tax that’s designated for beach repairs. Ott said the California Coastal Commission is aware of the public access closure and the commission will have to grant an extension on a Coastal Development Permit the city obtained last year. Ott said he is confident the extension will be granted. Sammack estimated that the cost of the closure, including signage and fencing, is about $4,000, and the cost to prepare final plans will be $100,000. The city council approved using undesignated reserve funding to cover both costs. Ott said the stair replacement project will go out to bid in the spring and it may take up to a year to construct. Jim Jaffee, a beach preservation and access advocate with Surfrider Foundation, said having a fee structure in place would be a good way to ensure financing for maintaining public access, and he urged the council to complete a fee study as soon as possible. He also expressed concern that the stairs will be closed for so long. “If there’s anything short term we could do, such as … gaining access through the condos for emergencies or emergency exits from the water,” said Jaffee. “In the winter when there’s big surf that’s a spot with some of the most powerful waves in the water, and there should be a way to exit the beach.”

Access slowly being restored in Highway 101 construction BY CLAIRE HARLIN Access to businesses along Highway 101 in Solana Beach may have seemed even more hindered in the last few weeks than any other phase of the city’s ongoing revitalization construction project so far. However, storm drain construction should wrap up at the end of this month, according to the city, and access is being slowly restored. The City of Solana Beach estimates that Estrella Street will reopen soon after base paving wraps up around Nov. 16. However, it may be closed periodically for rain and storms through the end of the month. Cliff Street is expected to open in mid-December, when water service connections are completed. Until then, local access to businesses on Cliff is possible through Acacia Avenue. Sidewalk construction on the west side of Highway 101 is scheduled to begin mid-December, and it will take place in very small sections because it’s expected to inconvenience businesses directly in front of store fronts. It will not be until sidewalk construction wraps up that parking along the 101 will be restored. So far, the city has completed median tree planting and decorative concrete installation, and is in the middle of base paving and construction of median lights and pedestrian ramps. Curb pouring will begin on Dec. 3. The city is publishing a twice-monthly newsletter to give the community updates on the schedule and progress of the project. To see the newsletter, sign up for the city’s mailing list at or visit the City Hall kiosk, located at 635 South Highway 101.

Pasta Pronto to get new look, concept as Urban Pi but the Mango Tart stays

Local eatery Pasta Pronto has closed its doors but not for good—the restaurant in the Albertson’s shopping center on Via de la Valle (across from Flower Hill Promenade) is undergoing an expansion and remodel, and will reopen Dec. 4 under a new format. The new, fastcasual restaurant concept will be called Urban Pi and will serve up custom-made thin crust pizzas cooked in a hearth stone oven, custom-made salads, sandwiches and desserts, along with natural soft drinks, wine and craft beers. “We are committed to serving only the highest quality good-for-your-body food that we possibly can,” said Darrell Szaiff MacNeil, executive chef and general manager. The menu will also retain Pasta Pronto’s favorites like its Mango Tart with mango slices arranged in a pie made to look like a flower in bloom. The Mango Tart will return in time for the holidays, but during the construction phase it is also available by pre-order at its sister restaurant Urban Plates in the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. To place a pre-order, call (858) 509-1800. — Karen Billing

Youth fencing coach sentenced to five years in state prison BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A youth fencing coach who pleaded guilty to multiple felony charges for having sexual relationships with two girls over the past decade was sentenced recently to five years in state prison. Vijay Prasad, 51, of Carmel Valley, was also ordered by Judge Eugenia Eyherabide to register as a sex offender for life. The defendant pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a girl between 2005 and 2007, starting when she was 14, and admitted sexually assaulting another underage girl 10 years ago, said Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth McClutchey. Prasad pleaded guilty to five charges — including committing a lewd act on a child, oral copulation on a minor and sexual penetration with a foreign object — and he admitted an allegation of substantial sexual conduct. Prasad was the after-school fencing coach at La Jolla Country Day School and also coached fencing through the recreation department at UC San Diego. A young woman who was one of the victims said the encounter with the defendant ruined her relationship with her family and that she subsequently suffered from nightmares and depression. “It’s taken many years to get back to normal places,’’ she said. The mother of the other victim said her daughter came home at age 14, excited about fencing, and talked non-stop about her coach. “She adored him,’’ the mother said. She added that both she and her husband were collegiate athletes and understood close connections with coaches. However, Prasad breeched his trust with their daughter, resulting in a series of migraines, anxiety and depression that caused the girl to halt her college studies for two semesters, according to the mother. It was only when she told authorities what had happened to her a few years earlier that she began to get better, according to the mother. She said her daughter has resumed her studies. Neither Prasad nor his lawyer commented.

Santa Fe Irrigation District board approves water rate increases for 2013 BY JOE TASH For the sixth year in a row, customers of the Santa Fe Irrigation District will receive an increase in their water bill come Jan. 1, 2013. Irrigation district directors approved a 6 percent rate increase for 2013 at their meeting on Thursday, Nov. 15. The board approved the rate increase on a 4-1 vote, with director John Ingalls voting “no.” With the latest rate increase, customers’ water bills have risen 74 percent over a sixyear period. The largest factor in the series of rate hikes has been a corresponding increase in the cost of imported water, which the Santa Fe Irrigation District buys from outside agencies to supply its customers, said irrigation district general manager Michael Bardin. This year, 3 percent of the increase will cover an anticipated rise in water costs to be charged by the San Diego County Water Authority, while the other 3 percent will help pay for capital improvement projects in coming years, Bardin said. “From our perspective, it’s a needed rate increase to cover the cost of water going up and fund our infrastructure improvement program. But we really are striving to keep rates as low as possible,” Bardin said. This year, the district’s $20 million operating budget is essentially flat from the previous year, and the agency has trimmed a number of staff positions in recent years to cut costs, Bardin said. At their meeting Thursday, directors declined a request by newly elected director

Greg Gruzdowich to hold off on considering the rate increase until new board members are seated in December. In the Nov. 6 election, Gruzdowich beat incumbent director Ken Dunford, while Alan Smerican won the seat being vacated by retiring director Robert “Bud” Irvin. Each 1 percent rate increase generates about $200,000 per year in revenue for the district, according to a staff report. The district’s water rates are still in the bottom one-third of water agencies in San Diego County, said Bardin. Money from the rate increase will be used to fund the district’s 10-year, $60 million capital improvement plan, which includes replacement of aging valves and pipelines, and improvements to the district’s water filtration plant. Even with the rate increase, Bardin said, the district will have a funding gap for its capital improvement budget, which will have to be revisited in future years. Another way the district is trying to save money is by using as much water as possible from local sources, such as Lake Hodges. Currently, the district imports about half its water, and uses local water for the rest of its needs, Bardin said. “We’re hoping for a wet winter to get some water in Lake Hodges again,” Bardin said. “If Mother Nature provides it, we’ve put ourselves in a position to sustain those levels (of local water use).” The district provides water for about 22,500 people in Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe and Fairbanks Ranch.

Solana Beach School District board members and staff break ground on the new Pacific Highlands Ranch school Solana Ranch. Photo/Karen Billing

Groundbreaking ceremony held for new school BY KAREN BILLING The Solana Beach School District celebrated the groundbreaking of its seventh district school in Carmel Valley’s Pacific Highlands Ranch on Nov. 15. The newly named Solana Ranch Elementary School is planned to be open for students by fall of 2014. The Solana Beach School District band played a medley of songs to mark the occasion and school district staff and board members put their shovels into the earth and tossed a ceremonial spray of dirt into the air. A tractor on site was noted to be parked on the future kindergarten wing. The new school is located on Pacific Highlands Ranch Parkway on a site that will be home to a future joint-use Gonzales Canyon Park. Superintendent Nancy Lynch said a lot of collaborative work went into making the day possible, including a design team of parents, staff and community members, the two previous superintendents Ellie Topolovac and Leslie Fausset, and Caroline Brown, the district’s director of technology and new facilities. Lynch said Brown has done so much work on the school that they joked it should be named after her. The new school will be a 68,000-square-foot facility with a two-story building and a one-story administration building, with room for 650 students. The campus will have a multi-use room and house its pre-school and child development center program. “We have taken into consideration sustainable building techniques,” Brown said, noting the school will have solar capabilities in the parking lot and on the roof, as well as many other energy-efficient measures. Gary Leivers, the design leader, said it’s been a privilege to work on the school project. He said he appreciated the district pushing him and challenging him on the sustainable feaSee SCHOOL, page 19

Mixed response voiced to updated plans for Pacific Highlands Ranch Village Center •C ommunity meeting on PHR to be held Nov. 28 BY KAREN BILLING The movie theater may be out of the plans for the updated Pacific Highlands Ranch (PHR) Village Center, but new owner Tom Blake of Coast Income Properties is developing many ideas he hopes will create a place that appeals to the community. The center’s new plan is for less retail and more residential units. Potential uses include a boutique grocery store, a gym, community gardens, a bocce ball court, wide sidewalks for outdoor dining and an abundance of gathering spaces. The PHR Village Center plans were approved by the city in 2010 with 219 residential units and 195,000 square feet of retail, including the cinema on the site on Carmel Valley Road and Village Loop Drive, across from Canyon Crest Academy. Blake would like to scale down the center to 145,000 square feet of retail and add 110 to 115 more residential units. The design and architecture will remain as was originally proposed and buildings will be a mix of one to six stories. The new plans reflect a five-foot height increase over what was approved. During a review at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board’s regional issues subcommittee meeting on Nov. 15, co-chair Anne Harvey said that what she’s heard most from neighbors is “What happened to our movie theater?” and “I thought we were getting a supermarket.” Blake said the movie theater no longer makes sense in the marketplace — theaters are too expensive to build, they don’t pay much in rent and they generate a “tremendous amount of parking.” As for the grocery store, the plan is to take the 43,000-square-foot building that was considered to be a grocery store —but never promised — and split it into two buildings, one of them potentially for a boutique market like a Trader Joe’s. Harvey worried that the lack of a movie theater would mean the center would lose that “lively” center of activity, “A place to go when people want a place to go.” “I think we can still achieve that,” said Keith Pittsford of SGPA Architecture and Planning. He said they hope to load the center with a variety of uses that will make it an attractive place to visit. See CENTER, page 19

BOND continued from page 1 port we had,” said Handzel. “Until this room is packed with 100 teachers and 1,000 parents saying stop the cuts, you shouldn’t stop. Send a message…we can’t continue to deficit spend. We have to live within our means.” Charat said parents struggled to get information and that the mountains of misinformation was impossible to overcome in the end. She said information about potential cuts, which was reported on in September, shouldn’t be buried in board packets but made more available so parents know what situation the district is dealing with. With the bond’s failure, superintendent Holly McClurg said the district has a lot of challenges but they are moving forward, and looking toward their strategic plan that outlines and helps define their needs. “We’re still working hard to find what are our priorities and goals, and to be very smart about the resources and needs we do have,” McClurg said, “We

have some tough decisions ahead.” Local school bonds throughout the county struggled to gain 55 percent approval in the November election. At presstime for this newspaper, MiraCosta’s Prop EE had received 54.24 percent of voter approval. While it did not have enough votes to pass after the ballot count on Nov. 6, with the tally of mail/provisional votes it appears that the San Dieguito Union High School District’s Prop AA bond may pass. As of presstime, the high school district’s bond had 55.16 percent voter approval with about 90,000 mail/provisional ballots left to be counted. The state’s education proposition, Proposition 30, did pass with 54 percent voting yes. (This bond only required a 50 percent voter approval to pass.) The Del Mar school district was looking at a potential $2 million cut from its reserves if Proposition 30 did not pass, according to Cathy Birks, assistant superintendent of business services. Birks clarified that Prop 30’s passage does not mean

DMUSD will receive any funding, it just means no mid-year cuts. “We’re not in the clear,” said trustee Doug Rafner. “We’re still at bad, we’re just not going to worse.” Birks agreed. “We’re still at bad.” Birks said Governor Jerry Brown can still look at the weighted student formula funding model; the district still could face a basic aid reduction, it still has to make its fair share contribution. Birks said they just received an estimate on the district’s property taxes that it’s approximately $200,000 down from the budgeted as-

sessed value. “We are definitely faced with some challenges. Prop 30 was not the solution,” Birks said. “There’s no new funding coming.” Birks said that they are now reviewing the budget and looking at what they can cut, and staff will be bringing recommendations to the board at its next meeting. Potential budget solutions brought to the board in September included class size reduction, furlough days, re-organizing library services, eliminating oversize class stipend, maintenance and operations work-

force reduction and cuts to programs, materials and supplies, special education transportation, professional services and professional development. Trustee Kristin Gibson said her motivation during the campaign was to ensure there was enough information out there for voters to make a good decision. She said 50 percent of the community supported their solution, which she said makes it clear that they did the right thing by putting it on the ballot. “It’s clearer to me now the impact (of Prop CC not passing),” Gibson said, re-

flecting on the fact that they could have had Chromebooks in all fourth through sixth grade classes next year but that is no longer going to happen. “I’m starting to realize the impact with some fear and some sadness.” Hall said working with the board on the Prop CC effort “renewed and improved” her respect for them. She thanked President Scott Wooden as even though he didn’t agree with the bond, she appreciated that he moved aside and let the process unfold. Hall said she was concerned about the role trustee Doug Perkins played in the failure of the bond. Perkins was the sole vote against the bond. “You were the only member of the board who didn’t support CC and spoke out against it,” Hall said. “We were [about 2] percent short and I think your efforts had a part to play that we didn’t meet 55 percent. This board has history where a lot of the members of the public don’t trust you. [The board] worked very hard to repair its image to the community and I’m concerned when I see divisiveness in the media and public eye that does not foster that image very well.” She said she believes that all the board members’ hearts are in the right place so it’s unfair that the community has that perception — she said that the board members need to consider the role they play so that the community is not suspicious of them or their intentions.


ated by Jurgen Schulze, said he hopes that the students will learn how their body works and what should be put into them to make them healthy, to have the tools to independently think their way beyond how society urges them to make wrong nutrition choices. “Otherwise this obesity epidemic will bankrupt this country,” he cautioned. During the Construction session, independent British musician Alex Day talked animatedly about his unlikely rise to stardom. Now with over half a million songs sold on iTunes, and landing fourth in the British pop charts during Christmas week last year, above Adele and Coldplay, Day, who has no agent, label or PR machine, went from obscurity to “the future of music” as Forbes dubbed him. The video of his latest song, “Good Morning Sunshine,” had the audience tapping their feet and singing along. “Always chase unrealistic goals,” Day said in closing. Wayne Earl founder of the charity, This Star Won’t Go Out, which helps provide funds to families with children who have cancer, spoke

with deep passion and emotion during the Interior session. Author of the biography of his daughter, Esther Grace, who succumbed to cancer in 2010, he talked of Esther’s life and traced her friendship with her favorite author, young adult fiction writer John Green. This friendship inspired Green most notably in his writing of the world-renowned novel, “The Fault in Our Stars,” which he dedicated to Esther. “Remember to read,” Esther advised others, an idea passed along by her father. Sonia Rhodes, executive producer, said of the entire event, which spotlighted over 25 inspirational speakers, “We do this because we understand the concept of big ideas and how they can transform these kids lives. They are ready and eager and willing. What is remarkable is how the community of San Diego has come together to make this happen. They understand that this is our chance to be inspiring and engaging with the architects of all our futures.” Emily Laliotis, a CCA junior who was one of a selected 45 students who collaborated in the planning and ex-

ecution of the event, aided by a few teachers, parents and business professionals, said that she gained life and business experience in helping organize this event. “TEDx was something that I could do that went beyond myself that could make a difference, that could move people.” Drumming, dance, digital technology and live music rounded out the day’s events and for all those who attended the message was clear: “Your ideas are worth sharing, you are architects of the future.” TED, an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, Design, is a worldwide annual conference that brings together achievers in a various fields who share ideas worth spreading. TEDxYouth@San Diego mirrors that vision with a mission to inspire and be a catalyst for change. Sponsors at the CCA event included DPR Construction, JIMBO”S Naturally, Hilton Garden Inn, ebayInc., MakerPlace, Nika, dpiDirect, barnana, Specialty Produce and more.

Rodriguez’s term on board ends Outgoing trustee Comischell Rodriguez said a tearful goodbye to the Del Mar Union School District board at her last meeting on Nov. 14. Superintendent Holly McClurg said that Rodriguez has been an exemplary leader for the district through her vision, passion, perseverance, courage and caring. “You were the type of leader we needed at a certain time,” McClurg said before presenting Rodriguez with a gift of artwork by a DMUSD teacher featuring district children. Rodriguez said that her last 12 years in the district and four on the board have been a blessing. She said she truly believes the district offers the finest public education possible. “We will always credit our teachers for giving so freely to the children so they can grow individually and intellectually,” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez said she joined the board

During the Foundation session, Dr. Larry Smarr, professor of computer science and information technologies at the University of California, San Diego, and founding director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Technology (Calit2) spoke about the importance of healthy nutrition and obesity. “We are trapped in a culture that is trying to sell us things that ruin our body,” he told the audience as he showed data on obesity statistics and the amount of sugar individuals consume annually that leads to this obesity. “Learn to think for your self,” he stressed, “Arm yourself with the CEO of your own body.” Smarr, who showed 3D images of his own internal organs through software cre-

She joined right after the ouster of Superintendent Tom Bishop and her campaign based on balance never saw the light of day as she ran unopposed. During the first two years of her term, she said she weathered some choppy waters watching leadership in the district change but said now they have restored “balance and well being.” “The focus is back on the business of educating our students,” Rodriguez said. She said superintendent Holly McClurg sets a positive tone and leads the district with grace and dignity. Rodriguez also welcomed new board member Alan Kholos and said that he will be a perfect fit with the seating board that is “knowledgeable, thoughtful and willing to state their opinions for open and honest dialogue.” Kholos will join the board at its Dec. 19 meeting.

Find your best holiday gifts at Canyon Crest Academy’s First Annual Ravens Holiday Bazaar to benefit the girls’ basketball team. It will be held in the CCA Gymnasium from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. The event is open to the public and attendance is free. Vendors will offer a wide variety of goods – jewelry, home goods, apparel, handbags, stained glass art, chefs’ wares, candles, and more — to fill all of your holiday shopping needs. The bazaar will also feature exciting opportunity drawings throughout the day. The Ravens team depends on a variety of fundraising means, from rummage sales to selling team sweatshirts, to support their team. Mike Ramel, new head coach of the Ravens notes, “Unfortunately when it comes to the school budget, extracurriculars always take the biggest hit. The lessons learned from participation in athletics have the same or greater value to a student’s life as classroom lessons. The girl on my team aspiring to be a doctor excels in biology class, and she also learns how to meet deadlines, perform under pressure, and work with a team through participation in athletics. The players have spearheaded the fundraising efforts in order to meet our budgetary needs as

a program, and this great event is just one example of their hard work coming together.” All proceeds will directly benefit the program and be used to pay for officials, trainers and staff at games, provide transportation, pay for tournaments and additional coaching, and purchase necessary equipment and new uniforms. The mission of the Ravens Girls’ Basketball Team is to use basketball to teach life lessons, transforming players in successful leaders now and in the future. The Ravens are taught time management, communication, setting and achieving goals, decision making under pressure and working as a team; all of which are abilities that will spill over into their life beyond the program. Vendors interested in participating in the bazaar should call Mike Ramel at (845) 649-4193.

The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy has been described by families and homeowners on news networks globally over the last weeks. There are those, however, who cannot share their stories; orphaned dogs and cats in shelters that are facing loss and displacement to make room for the thousands of pets who need shelter as a result of Hurricane Sandy. On Nov. 17, 45 orphaned dogs and cats (from Save A Pet on Long Island, NJ and animals from New Jersey rescued by Delco SPCA) flew across the country, via a donated charter from Southwest Airlines, chaperoned by SeaWorld’s animal rescue experts, just in time for a safe and secure new home for the holidays at the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe. The extraordinary rescue was made possible by Southwest Airlines, whose Flight Crews donated their time and whose fuel provider BP donated fuel for the flight; along with the donated manpower of SeaWorld, providing veterinarians and technicians to assist and chaperone the pets across the country. SeaWorld’s experts in San Diego also donated transportation for the pets to their new home at the Wodoward Center after they “touched paw” at Lindbergh Field.

Del Mar Solana Beach Sunrise Rotary Club delivers dictionaries to local school district BY DEL MAR-SOLANA BEACH SUNRISE ROTARY CLUB The Del Mar Solana Beach Sunrise Rotary started delivering dictionaries to the third grade students in the Del Mar Union School District. With five participating schools and nearly 60 students per school, DMSB Sunrise Rotary will reach out to nearly 300 students this year. So why third graders? Third grade is when young people start to take ownership of their own possessions and students start to learn word mechanics in the second half of third grade. The pleasure you see on the kids faces tells the story. They show amazing interest in their new book. The U.S. Dictionary Porject started from a shared dream between two Rotarians. In 2001 it was five clubs in Southern Colorado lead by the Lamar Rotary club. These five clubs distributed 1,800 books the first year. In 2010 over 120 Rotary clubs in 14 states and 14 Rotary districts participated and distributed 39,000 hard-cover dictionaries worth over $750,000. Here are just a few more reason why DMSB Sunrise has been part of the USA Dictionary Project for years: • 44 million adults in the U.S. can not read well enough to read a simple story to their child. 50 percent of American adults are unable to read an 8th grade level book. 46 percent of American adults cannot understand the label on their prescription medicine. • Children who have not developed some basic literacy skills by the time they enter school are three - four times more likely to drop out in later years. • The average student learns about 3,000 words per year in the early school years (eight words per day).

1St-8th grade students, Hands-On Robotics Education



(Above) The Del Mar Solana Beach Sunrise Rotary Club dictionary delivery at Ocean Air Elementary school in Carmel Valley. They were distributed by Rotarians Beverly Wolgast (in the picture) and Jan Parsons. • Disadvantaged students in the first grade have a vocabulary that is approximately half that of an advantaged student (2,900 and 5,800 respectively). • 14 percent of all individuals have a learning disability. • It is estimated that more than $2 billion is spent each year on students who repeat a grade because they have reading problems. • Over one million children drop out of school each year, costing the nation over $240 billion in lost earnings, forgone tax revenues, and expenditures for social services. • Low literacy is strongly related to crime. 70 percent of prisoners fall into the lowest two levels of reading proficiency. and 30 percent of children in United States will not finish high school.

Del Mar professor of medicine and neuroscience honored for discoveries made on diseases such as Huntington’s, ALS BY KATHY DAY Don Cleveland’s career path took a turn when he was in graduate school at Princeton, veering from physics to biochemical sciences. The Del Mar resident was married then to a biologist who used to come home and talk excitedly about her experiments. In physics, experiments take about 50 people; in biology it takes two or three, he said. Soon, he changed directions and earned a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences. Today he is a professor of medicine and neuroscience and heads the Laboratory of Cell Biology at The Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research at UCSD. He is also chair of UCSD’s Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine. His change of focus may well turn out to be a very good thing for people suffering from neuromuscular and neurogenetic diseases, such as Huntington’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gherig’s disease) and spinal muscular atrophy – a fatal disease affecting children who are born with little muscle tone and never develop muscle control. He has teamed up with Dr. Frank Bennett, senior vice president of research at Carlsbad-based Isis Pharmaceuticals, and Holly Kordasiewicz, who used to be a member of Cleveland’s research team and now is at Isis, to work on a way to treat these diseases. In the June edition of the journal Neuron, they reported that they had found a gene that can silence the mutated gene that causes Huntington’s disease. In animal models, they found that a single infusion of a DNAbased drug built on Isis’s antisense gene-blocking technology slowed and even partly reversed the progression of the debilitating disease. On Nov. 16, the Huntington’s Disease Society of America ( honored the trio and their research teams at the annual Celebration of Hope Gala & Auction at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. According to a press release “The honorees have made discoveries into the causes

and treatment of human neurodegenerative diseases, especially ALS and Huntington’s diseases. Their efforts are pioneering the development of stem cell and gene silencing therapies for both of these disorders.” Huntington’s is a fatal genetic brain disorder that results in the loss of all mental and physical capabilities. It affects about 30,000 people a year, CleveHonoree Don Cleveland in the lab. land said. For him, the “aha moment” was the realization that DNA-based drugs could be used to treat disease. It came after the concept was repeatedly championed by Richard Smith, a neurologist and director of La Jolla’s Center for Neurologic Study. “He came by and said, ‘Don, you should try it,’” Cleveland recalled, adding with a wry smile, “He was very pushy and very annoying.”

Then Smith met Bennett, one of the founders of Isis, and told him the same thing. Finally, Cleveland said, “We just told him we would do it.” Initially, they didn’t think that if you infused the DNA into a single gene that it would transfuse throughout the body. But their experiment showed otherwise. “It broadly delivers an effective drug into the nervous system,” he said, noting that the approach is being applied to several diseases and has already entered clinical trials in three. They hope to move into the clinic with Huntington’s patients within a year. “The last 14 months have been the most exciting time in ALS (research) in history.” Thirteen months ago they discovered the cause of that disease. Cleveland read the original description in a scientific journal on a Wednesday; on Thursday he and the team started talking about “likely clinical strategies” and off they went into their labs. Today Isis has a drug for spinal muscular atrophy, using the antisense technology, in clinical trials. Meanwhile, Cleveland still is focused on “establishing the feasibility of trying to truly treat the primary causes of cancer,” but his excitement over the efforts in neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases is hard to hide. Huntington’s disease is a “monogenetic disease,” meaning that a single gene causes the damage, in this case producing a toxic protein called the huntingtin that damages and ultimately destroys brain cells. Because of that, the antisense approach to silence the gene “makes great sense,” he said. It’s a technique already proven safe in trials and there are already antisense drugs approved for other uses. In research to date, Cleveland’s researchers and the Isis team have been able show the mutated gene’s instructions can be turned off for short periods and that the effects can actually be reversed for a period of time. It could be that a monthly or quarterly infusion could See PROFESSOR, page 19

Maki co-founder meets supporters for first time at Del Mar fundraiser • Peruvian woman lives to tell of decades-long genocide BY CLAIRE HARLIN Marisol Chancos Mendoza recently became a legal resident of the United States. She made the move from her native town of Ayacucho, Peru to New York City only a few weeks ago, joining her husband and 14-year-old son, Adrian, both of whom Del Mar resident Martha Dudenhoeffer she hadn’t seen Kolodny (left) and Marisol Chancos in five years. She Mendoza (right) held an event in Del endured a long Mar on Nov. 13 to raise money for Maki wait for her pa- International. Courtesy photo pers, and was even denied visitor visas during the process. However, for the first time this month she saw snow — and a hurricane — and she also attended her first parent-teacher conference for Adrian, who is now fluent in English and also learning to speak Chinese. “My husband and I thought it was better for him to get accustomed early, but I remember it was so hard when I had to ask him if he wanted to come to the States and tell him he would have to come without me,” said Mendoza. “He was only 9 and he said, ‘Mom, don’t worry. The first thing we’ll do is get you there.” It wasn’t an easy five years after her family left Peru, but Mendoza wasn’t lonely — nor was she idle. Working as a volunteer coordinator for an international service organization, she crossed paths with Martha Dudenhoeffer Kolodny, a Del Mar resident who had come to Peru with the desire to make a difference.

Kolodny, with Mendoza’s guidance, found her passion working with female prisoners in Ayacucho, and ended up returning several times to visit and bring materials for embroidery — a traditional talent Kolodny noticed the women had. Many serving time for drug trafficking they were forced into, the prisoners began creating intricate Peruvian textiles, which Kolodny sold in the United States to raise money for educational programs in the prison. Soon enough, the women’s efforts grew into the non-profit Maki International, which not only brought solace to Mendoza while she was separated from her family, but uplifted her hometown, which is still recovering from a 20-year guerilla conflict that began there in 1980 and resulted in the deaths and disappearances of some 80,000 people. “Maki was my salvation during that time. It kept me busy,” said Mendoza, giving an appreciative glance to Kolodny during a Nov. 14 interview at Pannikin Del Mar. Kolodny responded,”If you were busy, had you had your son there, Maki might not have ever happened.” Mendoza spent a week in Del Mar — her first trip to California — to attend a Nov. 13 fundraiser for Maki at the Powerhouse Community Center, where she met Maki supporters and shared first-hand experiences about life in Ayacucho. The prisoners who benefit from Maki’s framework of creating, exporting and selling their work each have stories to tell, either of how they were forced into being a drug mule or how Maki’s educational programs will keep them out of the drug trade upon their release. But many have also lived to tell the story of the decades-long genocide that was brought upon the Andean region by the Shining Path, a terrorist group that recruited thousands into its murderous insurgency. This is also a story that Mendoza is all too familiar with. “I remember when it started, the first time in my life I heard gunshots. I was 6,” said Mendoza. “It was after that I started hearing of people killed on the radio every day. Every night there were bombings. Every single night. We wouldn’t have power for days, months.” Mendoza said she remembers walking to school as a child and seeing dead bodies in the streets, often with dogs

eating them or signs draped over them warning people not to cooperate with one side of the conflict or the other. She said she saw violent strikes and military raids. She saw car bombs often, but one of her most frightening memories was when she saw a child explode right in front of her. Whether a bomb was strapped to the child or thrown at the child, she said she is unsure. “I remember so clearly what I saw. I want to forget, but it’s hard to forget those things,” she said. “It’s like I was standing and everything was spinning around me. We just started running to school, crying.” Mendoza was sent by her family to escape the violence and attend school in Lima at the age of 15. She lived with and worked for a family and, in exchange, they paid for her education. She studied English. Having worked for a living since she began selling cakes to make ends meet at the age of 6, Mendoza said she values hard work and is motivated to help those who need it. “I remember all the people who bought my cakes, who helped me as a child growing up,” said Mendoza. “Over the years I’ve met so many people who aren’t my relatives but have helped me so much, like the families I lived with … What helps me now is being able to help all these women.” In particular, Mendoza said she is thankful for Kolodny. “She helps me so much by giving me the opportunity and she is also helping all these women,” she said. “She’s like a mother and a sister and a friend. She means so much to me.” Kolodny helped Mendoza train her 31-year-old sister, Jessica, also of Ayacucho, to take over Maki operations at the prison in preparation for Mendoza being granted her immigration papers. The training took more than a year, Kolodny said. “It’s not an easy thing going in that prison,” she said. “It was like leaving our child with someone,” said Mendoza, who has to stay in the States for at least a year under customs requirements to show residency. And even though she is now living happily ever after in New York with her own child, she’s already thinking about what she’s going to do when she’s granted the right to travel legally. “The first thing I want to do,” she said, “is visit Ayacucho.” For more information about Maki, visit

Cavalia extends show dates after huge local response BY CLAIRE HARLIN Cavalia isn’t your ordinary horse show, and it’s surely not just for horse people. The billboards for the live production, which opened at Petco Park on Nov. 13, are a bit vague, showing nothing more than a white horse and a quote from Tonight Show host Jay Leno: “The greatest show I’ve ever seen.” Much like the Montrealbased production itself, the advertisement leaves much to the imagination. But after seeing the multi-disciplinary production, created by Normand Latourelle and described as “Cirque meets rodeo,” the reason why some 3.5 million people have also seen the show may make sense. Featuring more than 50 horses and 42 riders, aerialists, acrobats, dancers and musicians from all Cavalia has extended its show over the world, the show is capable of inspiring or dates until Dec. 30 renewing anyone’s love for horses, while invoking thrill and excitement along the way. Priced from $39.50 to $154.50, fans can immerse themselves into Cavalia at a number of different tiers — from great to mediocre seats, to free drinks and food in the “Rendez-voux Lounge,” to backstage access to the stars’ changing rooms (i.e. the horse stables). Cavalia was planning to end in mid-December, however, it extended its show dates until Dec. 30 because ticket sales were so strong. Latourelle said in a statement that Cavalia has had a local following in San Diego since the show came to town in 2004. Maybe that has something to do with the large horse-centric vibe exhibited through the stables of Rancho Santa Fe and the racehorses of Del Mar. “That’s why we chose America’s finest city for the last stop of our North American tour before traveling to the land down under for our first ever Australian tour in early 2012,” he said.

Solana Highlands Elementary School recently held an educational week to help prevent bullying. Photo/Jon Clark

While Supplies Last

‘Bully Free Week’ at Solana Highlands Solana Highlands Elementary School held a “Bully Free Week” Nov. 12-16. While most experts consider bullying an issue that largely begins in 4th grade, the school wants to be sure that it proactively teaches about this behavior so that bullying does not occur either now or in the future. Students were taught: The definition of bullying; the difference between conflict and bullying; what each of us can say and do to prevent bullying and the role bystanders play; and the difference between “Tattling and Telling.” At the conclusion of the presentation, the student council acted out the story “One” by Kathryn Otoshi. After seeing their grade’s presentation each student was asked to take the following pledge: “I promise that I will do my best to show good character and keep our school a safe and caring place. This means that I will: 1. Treat everyone with kindness and respect. 2. Refuse to bully others. 3. Refuse to let others be bullied. 4. Refuse to watch, laugh, or join in when someone is being bullied. 5. Try to include everyone in play, especially those who are often left out. 6. Report bullying to an adult.”

Del Mar Times Letters to the Editor/Opinion Solana Beach Sun Mar Little League to split into two smaller leagues in 2013 Carmel Valley News Del Del Mar Little League (DMLL) is excited to manager placement, and team manipulation and, leagues as of now is to have each league have a 3702 Via de la Valle Suite 202W Del Mar, CA 92014 858-756-1403 The Del Mar Times (USPS 1980) is published every Friday by San Diego Suburban News,a division of MainStreet Communications.

announce that it will be splitting into two smaller, individual leagues beginning in 2013. DMLL has been serving young people in the community since 1960. Just as Del Mar and Carmel Valley have grown over the years, so too has DMLL. By 2000, the league had grown so much that it exceeded size restrictions for one league and was forced by the governing body of Little League to add a second charter, thus dividing the league into two, but operating under one board. For the past 12 seasons, under a special waiver, Little League International has allowed the league to operate as one of the largest Little League’s in the country, with almost 1,000 players, under one board of directors. The goal and directive from Little League International was for this waiver to last a maximum of two seasons, at which time the league would need to split the boundaries and form two completely separate leagues, under two boards of directors. For the past 12 seasons, the league has been operating under that same two-year waiver, continuing to fight for the right to keep the leagues together in order to not have to go through the great effort to complete the split. The job for the board has always been very difficult, but manageable, as players of all ages bounce back and forth from one league to the next during their Little League tenure. During a player’s final year or two of their Little League career, most players play in the Majors Division. Players had been drafted into one of the leagues or the other in an open draft format, but once a player was drafted into a particular league, they needed to complete their Little League career in that same league. “Every year this caused our board of directors a tremendous amount of stress. No matter what we did, we would always have complaints of manipulation or lack of transparency. Some folks just weren’t happy with their manager, their team, or the perceived strength of a different team, so they suggested that our board was making attempts to make one league stronger than another, and considering that was never the case, it was always very frustrating,” stated DMLL President Joe Caprice. “We always had complaints of

frankly, it has been a very difficult task to make everyone in the community happy. Our league has just been too large, which has made it difficult to run and to the rest of the league has appeared to lack transparency.” Finally, after modest pressure from Little League International over many years, as well as dealing with the frustrations from many of our league members, claiming league manipulation, when the topic of league split was presented this year by the District 31 officials, the board voted unanimously (19-0) to proceed with the split. The new boundary for the two leagues is Highway 56, with Del Mar National now operating on the south side and Del Mar American on the north side. Players who reside in those neighborhoods will only be allowed to play in the league in which boundary they live. District 31 Administrator Larry Burch expressed his pleasure that DMLL has finally complied with the wishes of Little League International, stating, “I appreciate the great effort that has gone in to this transition by the Del Mar board. My thanks to all of you for working with me on this split to satisfy the needs of Little League in making the Del Mar Little Leagues like leagues are supposed to be: small, community-based and locally operated to serve the youth of their community.” “The board was exhausted from all of the complaining about perceived manipulation, and it was simply time to stop fighting the request from the district to proceed with the split” explained Jeff Bernstein, a long-time board member and current Majors Division coordinator. “This board this year is also in a unique position to complete the split over the next 12 months considering the current membership has 10 members on the north side of the Highway and nine members on the south side. In addition, we have just about the same number of returning majors players on each side.” The board is extremely excited about the split, and is confident that it will allow for some fantastic opportunities to create a much more enjoyable and harmonious Little League experience for the kids. For example, the intent for the

“Home Base” where most of the games are played every Saturday. Ashley Falls Elementary will be the home of Del Mar American and Sage Canyon Elementary will be the home of Del Mar National. “We intend to play almost every game from each league at the same location each Saturday” discussed past DMLL President and current Treasurer Larry Jackel. “Creating this home base will allow the kids to have more of a Little League environment like when we grew up. We plan to have snack bars at each field and slightly shorter game times so that our multiple player families will be able to see both of their children play at the same park each weekend. We are hoping these become ‘Baseball Parks’ where each individual league can have pride in their League and a sense of League unity.” Having two smaller leagues will also make the tough task of being a board member much more enjoyable. Average size for a large league throughout the country is about 350 players. Each Del Mar Little League will have over 400 players, so they will still be on the large side, but certainly more manageable. “Hopefully the entire Del Mar Little League community understands that this move was something we simply had to do in order to comply with the wishes of Little League, and that our entire board is excited to bring about the change. We were simply tired of answering to our members about manipulation and lack of transparency, so continuing to fight to keep the leagues together was no longer an option. There will be a small adjustment period as we move forward, but we believe that the long run will result in a more harmonious and enjoyable environment for the kids,” summarized Caprice. For more information and frequently asked questions please see the website at where you will find a FAQ link on the front page. Registration information for both leagues may also be found on the website. — Submitted by Del Mar Little League President Joe Caprice.

The FAR-parking relationship I’ve previously discussed the need to change Del Mar’s parking ordinance. I’m writing this letter to discuss the Floor Area Ratio (FAR). I believe the General Plan got it right. Forty-five percent lot coverage is about the maximum FAR achievable with on-site parking. Providing one parking space per 300 square foot generally requires off-site parking for when the FAR is greater than 45 percent. The City didn’t have a public parking garage when the General Plan was written, and they still don’t. The FAR is one of six variables involved with commercial development, along with land cost, building cost, net leasable, take out interest rate, and rent. The spreadsheet at right shows that economic benefits result from off-site parking when land costs exceed $100 per square foot and offsite parking spaces cost $35,000. With this spreadsheet, you can plug in your own numbers and see where a development is fundable. In summary, increasing the FAR will incentivize Del Mar’s re-development, but it can’t happen until Del Mar has a public parking garage; which is years away. However, some properties in Del Mar may become candidates for redevelopment when reasonable parking standards are established. George Conkwright 1201 Camino del Mar

Week in Sports: Torrey Pines wins volleyball, PROFESSOR SCHOOL continued from page 5 golf championships; Cathedral wins Division III continued from page 9 water polo, volleyball championships BY GIDEON RUBIN Golf: Torrey Pines solidified its dynasty status as the Falcons easily won their third consecutive state championship as senior standout Minjia Luo led the way to win the state individual title. The Falcons shot a combined 401 on the 18-hole par-72 course at Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga at the Nov. 13 state championships. The Falcons finished 19 strokes ahead of second place Diamond Bar, which shot a combined 420. Luo shot a 74 to win the individual title by one stroke. Sarah Cho placed third with a 76 score. Sandy Choi fired an 80 score, Jennifer Peng contributed an 85 and Shiyang Fan and Sung Eun Park each added 86 scores. Volleyball: Torrey Pines trounced Poway 3-0 (25-15, 25-16, 2518) to win the San Diego Section Division I championship.

CENTER continued from page 5 Blake said that they have talked to some potential tenants to replace the large cinema space, although nothing has been made official yet. Some sample tenants include an upper-end gym, an REI or Nordstrom Rack. “I think there’s a demand for retail in this area,” said Blake. Neighbor Shenping Yuan said he was concerned that building more units and incorporating less retail won’t encourage people to come to the site and also doesn’t provide local residents with the uses they need to be a self-sustaining community, without having to travel east or west to shop. “We have been hoping this new village will make our life easier and make the area more attractive to future homeowners,” Yuan said. “The original plan approved by the city may not be perfect, however, it seems to have a better proportion of residential versus retail.” Neighbor David Shamos said he moved into the PHR community a year ago and the Village plan played a role in his decision. Like Yuan, he said he didn’t like

Reily Buechler had 16 kills to lead the Falcons and Jennie Frager contributed 10 kills. Setter Ryan Chandler contributed 38 assists. The Falcons improved their overall record for the season to 31-4. ***** Cathedral Catholic defeated Del Norte 3-1 (25-17, 20-25, 25-12, 25-23) to win the Division III championship. The title was the Dons seventh straight. Tatiana Durr had 19 kills to lead the Dons and Krissy Witous added 11 kills. The Dons improved their overall record for the season to 30-4. ***** Canyon Crest Academy lost to La Costa Canyon 3-2 (25-23, 20-25, 15-25, 25-16, 15-11) in the Division II championship game. Jolie Rasmussen had 14 kills to lead the Ravens and Caterina Rosander added 11. The Ravens fell to 26-10 overall for the season. *****

Santa Fe Christian lost to Francis Parker 3-0 (25-14, 25-20, 25-21) in the Division IV title game. Hannah Hubbard had 13 kills to lead the Eagles. The Eagles fell to 17-12 overall for the season. Water polo: Cathedral Catholic defeated Bishop’s 9-8 in overtime in the Division III championship game. Jordan Colina scored four goals to lead the Dons and goalie Joe Cleary contributed 14 saves. Field hockey: Canyon Crest Academy lost to Serra 2-0 in the Division II championship game. The Ravens lost for just the second time all year in 27 games.

that the retail was being trimmed and that the residential square footage is being bumped up. Jan Fuchs, committee co chair, reminded Blake that one of the key planning elements of the village was the openness, preserving a view corridor to look out to Santa Monica Ridge. Blake said they have maintained and even expanded on the open spaces and views. He said a central plaza area is planned to be about 40 feet wide and 90 feet long, opening into the open space, which is a green area 100 feet across that goes 500 feet long. To make the far end of the green open space more appealing, they would like to add amenities like an amphitheatre, community gardens, bocce ball courts and possibly a playground space. The 3-acre future city library site remains at this end of the property, but the developer does not have control over when that will be built. Pittsford said ideas abound for the green space, including a meandering trail with passive seating spaces, an area for a coffee cart or even terracing the lawn to provide seating walls. The terraces could be lit at night so people would see ribbons of light marching up to the

retail center. In the original plan, the commercial uses used to extend down to the end of the green. The loss of the commercial uses in that area was disappointing to neighbor Karen Dubey. She said the new plan feels like a segregated village divided into two uses — one a six-story apartment complex surrounding a park and the other a small shopping center. “This is not a mixed-use village as intended by the community plan, but a boring corner center where people can get their dry cleaning and take-out food on the way home,” Dubey said. “I have hope that by incorporating community input Coast Income Properties will be able to make substantial improvements to make this a truly special place.” Dubey said she has found Coast Income very willing to speak to the community and get their ideas. A community meeting for public input will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 4:30 p.m. at the Airoso community great room, 6135 Galante Place. Dubey has created a site for more information on the project at

prove to be the answer for those who suffer from this type of genetic disease, Cleveland noted. As the team pursues the latest discoveries into the clinic – his former student Kordasiewicz left for a job at Isis to do just that – Cleveland leads his team of 15 post-doctoral students at the Ludwig Institute. It’s the largest of the centers funded by the global nonprofit founded by Daniel K. Ludwig, a business magnate who pledged $1 billion to support cancer research after his wife died of the disease. Cleveland left Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1994 to head up the center. He enjoys the teaching part of his work and, like many of his colleagues, he said, “I teach all day every day.” He gets major satisfaction from seeing his students succeed -- 25 have left for jobs all over the country and one is running a clinical trial for an ALS drug. “I’m proud of lots of them,” he said. “They’re going to replace me one day. That’s the goal.” He tries to impart to them something he began to learn at Princeton about the keys to success. “Smart is nice, being experimentally talented is helpful and perseverance helps.” But it is the process of discovery that is the key part, he added. “If you enjoy it, it’s a great life. If not, get out.” A native of New Mexico who did his undergraduate work in physics at New Mexico State University, Cleveland says he lives his hobby, spending nearly 12 hours a day on campus. Occasionally he finds time to take a run, enjoys spending time with his wife and their two cats, and gets a kick out of traveling all over the world to talk about his work. “My mother said, ‘You have to have a hobby,’” said Cleveland, whose father was a physicist. “I get paid for my hobby. I’m engrossed in it. I like what we do.”

Yellow YOLO’s crowned DMCV Sharks Soccer Club Boys Division 4 (Under 12) League Champions was a great game and a great tournament! Coach Sanborn commented: “The boys were simply amazing all weekend with everyone playing their best soccer ever. To watch them play as a team, taking on great teams, and never giving up or backing down. Other teams struggled when they got down but our boys did not, they all stepped up. They earned this Championship all on their own by beating the best of the best, and I will certainly cherish their reactions after the last whistle blew… from the cheers and screams, to the shirt waving, the Gatorade shower, and most importantly, all the smiles.” Coach Timmons added: “This is what the season is supposed to be about. Working hard, learning, developing as players, becoming a team, and most importantly having fun.” Congratulations Yellow YOLO’s

The Yellow YOLO’s (You Only Live Once) soccer team was triumphant recently in the Del Mar Carmel Valley Sharks Soccer Club end-of-season league tournament. The YOLO’s faced off against the very strong Maroon Hammer-Heads. The Hammer-Heads struck blood first on a blistering shot from Josh Ziegel hitting the back of the net from deep in the box, and took a 1-0 lead going into halftime. In the second half the YOLO’s dug deep, scoring the equalizer on a Ryan Sanborn corner-kick placed perfectly on the head of a darting in Stoney Timmons, and then scored again on a tremendous shot from Mathieu Barthelemy from outside the box. Although the YOLO’s took a 2-1 lead, there was still eight minutes left on the game clock and the colossal clash of the titans continued with both teams fighting until the end, with the YOLO’s eking out the 2-1 win.

SPORTS continued from page 19 play this year for using an eligible player. School administrators self-reported the infraction, which they said was the result of a clerical error. The Dons were the No. 2 seed in the Division III playoffs and had been scheduled to play Serra in a quarterfinal on Nov. 16. They were coming off a firstround bye. The Dons were 8-2 overall for the season and won the Eastern League championship with a 4-0 mark. They were seeking their sixth consecutive Division III title. “We hope this severe punishment raises awareness to get other schools to come together and start a conversation about appropriate consequences in the future,” school officials said in a statement. Denton credited Cathedral Catholic for self-reporting the infraction but said the punishment is consistent with California Interscholastic Federation regulations. “The school should be commended for self-reporting this violation and for maintaining the highest ethical standards,” he said in a statement. “The Court does not make this decision lightly.

Torrey Pines trounced Poway 3-0 (25-15, 25-16, 25-18) to win the San Diego Section Division I championship. Photo/Anna Scipione However, this decision is necessitated by the rules. Schools, teams and players must all abide and play by the same rules. The integrity of the system necessitates a level playing field.” ***** It took a little time to get Santa Fe Christian’s started, but once the Eagles got going they were off to the races in a 31-6 route Mountain Empire in a Division V playoff game on Nov. 16. Conor Keith rushed for 106 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries to lead the Eagles. Quarterback Hunter Vaccaro completed seven pass attempts for 137 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions and also rushed for 33 yards and a pair of touchdowns on nine carries. Hakon Bream caught three passes for 55 yards and one score.

Darrian Borboa led the Eagles with 16 tackles and Slater Howe added 11. The Eagles improved their overall record for the season to 8-3 and will play host to Horizon in a semifinal on Friday (Nov. 23). ***** Torrey Pines lost to Eastlake 28-10 in a Division I playoff game on Nov. 16. Chase Pickwell rushed for 75 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries and Mike Ward completed nine of 13 pass attempts for 124 yards to lead the Falcons. The Falcons trailed 7-0 early in the second quarter when Spencer Brewster kicked a 45-yard field goal to make it 7-3. Pickwell’s scoring run from three yards out in the closing minutes made it 2810. The Falcons concluded their season with a 6-6 overall record.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author shares the secrets of ‘Catherine the Great ‘ BY JOE TASH Historians’ work is similar to that of novelists, in that both types of writers tell stories about people, enlivening their tales with details of their characters’ triumphs and travails, award-winning writer Robert K. Massie told local audiences this week. While fiction writers populate their stories through their imagination, historians and biographers “have to work hard to discover the facts” by poring through mountains of documents, from letters to archives,Robert K. Massie Massie said in a recent talk to the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society, which was held at the Marriott-Del Mar. Massie’s latest effort to unearth the stories of real people is “Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman,” published in 2011 by Random House. He spoke Nov. 13 and 14 in San Diego. “Catherine” is Massie’s sixth historical work. His past books have included “Nicholas and Alexandra,” which was made into an Academy Award-winning film, and “Peter the Great,” for which he won a Pulitzer Prize in 1981. Massie is a native of Lexington, Kentucky, and now lives in New York state. He studied at Yale and Oxford University in England, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He previously worked as a journalist for Newsweek and the Saturday Evening Post. Massie’s subject, Catherine the Great, held power as the empress of Russia from 1762 until her death in 1796, at age 67. The daughter of a German prince, she is considered a key figure in both European and Russian history. “She reached at age 33, halfway through her life, a summit where in the 1,000-year history of the European monarchy, only one other woman had stood,” that being Elizabeth I of England, Massie said. The book details Catherine’s childhood, when she was rejected by a mother who wanted a boy, to her marriage at 16 to Peter, heir to the Russian throne. Her marriage was troubled from the start, said Massie, because her husband preferred playing with toy soldiers in the couple’s bed rather than having sex with his young bride. Later, Peter’s aunt, the Empress Elizabeth, forced Catherine to have a child with a man other than her husband, in the hope she would become pregnant and produce a future heir to prolong the Romanov Dynasty. The coupling arranged by the empress was successful, and Catherine gave birth to a boy. Catherine’s husband, Peter, became emperor of Russia at the death of his aunt, but was toppled from the throne during a coup by the Russian military. Catherine was named empress, and shortly after assuming the throne, Peter — who had been arrested — was strangled to death by his prison guards. According to Massie, questions dogged Catherine for See PULITZER, page B11

At 17, Del Mar author embarks on children’s book series, fantasy novel BY CLAIRE HARLIN For Del Mar resident Liana-Melissa Allen, what began six years ago as a fifth grade writing assignment has turned into six published books (including one Spanish version) and a children’s book series that she hopes to grow to dozens of titles. Allen may only be 17, but she currently has several draft novels on her desk and she’s quickly becoming a seasoned author. But success didn’t happen overnight for the Torrey Pines High School junior. She knew from the time she was old enough to read that she wanted to be a writer, and she’s been blowing people away with her artwork since she was 3 years old — that’s right, she also illustrates each and every one of her books, which are available on or local shops such as Frustrated Cowboy in Del Mar and Warwick’s in La Jolla. Allen’s passion for writing is just an extenuation of her passion for reading, she said.That passion began at a young age in a big, comfortable chair in her living room, where she would sit with her dad and read. He would read aloud and ask her to read along, stopping at random points and awarding her with popcorn if she was paying good enough attention to pick up where he left off. “We still read aloud together,” said Allen’s dad, Paul, publicist for the wellknown surf documentary, “The Endless Summer.” “It’s amazing what reading can do; It takes over your imagination and even your senses. The other day we were reading together and the characters walked into a room that smelled bad and we both smelled it. It was incredible, and that’s why people always say the movie is nothing compared to the book.” The fifth grade assignment that really inspired Allen was a “fractured tale,” a story that is based off another story. Allen loves horses, so she wrote a spin-off of “The Three Little Pigs” called “The Three Little Horses and the Big Bully Donkey.” Her dad, who volunteers at Del Mar Heights School by reading to the kids, began incorporating Allen’s book into his story time and he said the kids loved it. “I didn’t even tell them it was my daughter who wrote it, and these kids were so engaged,” Paul Allen said. “I was amazed how much they were into it and it didn’t even have any illustrations, so I said, ‘Liana, you have to do

d ol


some illustrations because the kids loved it.’” T h e kids began a s k i n g w h e r e they could get the book, and they were inspired that a kid close to their age wrote it, so the Allens decided to self-publish the book.

Del Mar site of cheering station for Komen 3-Day


La Jolla Cultural Partners

he 60-mile Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk against breast cancer came through the Del Mar Village on Nov. 16 after kicking off at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The event raised more than $6.5 million for breast cancer research, scientific programs and community-based breast health and education programs. Del Mar and surrounding communities showed their support with bubbles and noisemakers, cheerleaders from Torrey Pines High School and volunteer well-wishers — a foursome of golden retrievers was even offering complimentary nuzzles to walkers. Pink balloons, pink streamers and signs decorated the businesses along Camino Del Mar and volunteers handed out water, coffee and other treats.

It’s dining to a gold standard at Ruth’s Chris Steak House BY KELLEY CARLSON t the Ruth’s Chris Steak House in North County San Diego, guests are treated to the best of two regions — idyllic California sunsets and Southern hospitality. Not your typical “dark” steak house and different from the 134 other restaurants in the chain, this particular Ruth’s Chris has windows that stretch from the floor to the high ceiling, allowing for an abundance of light as the sun makes its way across the sky and seemingly descends into the ocean, just on the other side of Interstate 5. Through the main dining room’s glass, patrons can also see the rays glinting off the 36-foot silver sculpture by Encinitas-based artist Jeffery Laudenslage, titled “Archimage,” (which means “great magician”). The piece stands guard at the Torrey Reserve business complex and continues to glow at night through artificial lighting. Despite the grand setting, diners can expect to feel as if they’re at home. “We aim for treating people as if they’re in their own living room,” said general manager Bobby Daitch. It’s a signature trait of the chain that stems from its early days, when Ruth Fertel, a single mother of two and professor at Tulane University in New Orleans, mortgaged her home for $22,000 to buy Chris Steak House in 1965. A handson owner, she cut meat, poured drinks and kept the books, and exuded friendliness. While the Ruth’s Chris in North County often draws people from as far away as Murrieta and Escondido, many live nearby and the staff know them by name, Daitch said. In fact, the bar/lounge, which opens a half-hour before the dining room, is really

Or they select the Ruth’s Chop Salad (julienne iceberg lettuce, baby spinach and radicchio tossed with red onions, green olives, eggs, mushrooms, bacon, hearts of palm, bleu cheese, croutons and lemon basil dressing, topped with crispy onions) and sip a glass of wine while socializing. Yet others indulge in handcrafted cocktails, such as the Raspberry Rosemary Cosmo or the classic Moscow Mule, while listening to the sounds of jazz music. For lunch or dinner, patrons congregate in the main dining room, where nearly every table has a scenic view. Daitch suggests asking the server for advice and guidance on what to order. “They’re pros; most of them have worked here for a long

time,” he said, including Executive Chef Nef Hernandez, who has been there since Day 1. The trademark of Ruth’s Chris is the sizzling, juicy steaks that are prepared in 1,800-degree ovens designed by Fertel, and served to customers on 500-degree plates. The Filet is “the proper way to go,” Daitch said. It’s cut from corn-fed Midwestern beef and broiled. Big meat eaters may lean toward the Cowboy Ribeye. Fertel’s favorite was the New York Strip, which has a full-bodied texture that is slightly firmer than the rich and marbled Ribeye. And each selection can be paired with potato and vegetable sides, including Fertel’s original Creamed Spinach. Non-steak eaters can choose from seafood, chicken and vegetarian entrees.


November 22, 2012 PAGE B5 Work by Charles Reiffel.

The SD Museum of Art and SD History Center host joint exhibition of Charles Reiffel, ‘The American Van Gogh’ The San Diego Museum of Art and the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park are presenting a comprehensive and collaborative, two-museum retrospective of the work of Charles Reiffel celebrating the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth. Charles Reiffel: An American Post-Impressionist opened Nov. 10 and runs through Feb. 10, 2013. More than 90 of Reiffel’s works are being exhibited; primarily oils on canvas but also watercolors, gouaches, and drawings in both pencil and wax crayons. During his lifetime, Reiffel’s work was exhibited throughout the country, winning many national awards and the accolades of critics who compared him to John Henry Twachtman and other important American artists of the period. They often referred to Reiffel as the “American van Gogh.” Coming West, he died a pauper in San Diego early in 1942, a victim to the conservative taste of collectors here, who considered him “too modern” for their taste. The rise of the American avant-garde movement after World War II further overshadowed Reiffel’s legacy. This is the most important exhibition of Reiffel’s work since “Second Nature,” curated by Martin Petersen more than 20 years ago, and the first major retrospective of the

artist’s work since his death in 1942. The exhibition is accompanied by a handsome, fully illustrated catalog, featuring a major essay by noted scholar Bram Dijkstra (of Del Mar) which places the artist’s work in its historical context, and reveals what an illustrious career he sacrificed by coming West. “Charles Reiffel was more than just a founding father of the California landscape school, he was a Post-Impressionist of national stature,” says Ariel Plotek, Dijkstra’s co-curator. “This exhibition is a long overdue homage to one of San Diego’s most outstanding painters.” In addition to essays by Dijkstra and Plotek, the catalogue, the first collaborative exhibition between the two institutions, includes appreciations and observations by several local Reiffel collectors. Members of both institutions are invited to see the exhibition in its entirety and take advantage of free admission with a membership card for either museum throughout the run of the show. Nonmember visitors can receive $2 off admission at either museum by presenting a receipt or ticket stub from the partner institution. Visit and

Cedros (in the Cedros Design District) at the South Cedros Crossings. You can contact Passion Fine Jewelry via phone at 858-794-8000 or visit More about the Jacksons and Passion Fine Jewelry: •No counters, no barriers, just a place where people ... can simply talk. •There is “above and beyond” and then there is Tim, hand-delivering a watch to London Heathrow on Christmas Eve. •Question: When is a jewelry store, not a jewelry store? Answer: When Tim and Janna Jackson are in charge and when it’s a community. Undoubtedly, the Jacksons provide unparalleled customer service, but what may be even more impressive is that they value and understand certain aspects of business that few others even recognize.

continued from page B1 the rest of her life regarding whether she had ordered her husband’s death, or known about the assassination in advance. “Certainly, it was very convenient for her,” Massie said. Through her long reign, Catherine proved a skilled administrator, who steeped herself in philosophy and literature, maintained a correspondence with the French writer Voltaire, and enacted reforms such as ending torture and advocating for the emancipation of serfs, who toiled in the fields of rich landowners. Although she never remarried, she had 12 lovers. “The official term was ‘favorites” and all were given titles, positions at court and very considerable wealth,” said Massie. The most important of those lovers was Grigory Potemkin, who became her close confidant, military leader and viceroy for the southern portion of the country. Potemkin was considered the most powerful

man in Russia, and helped Catherine rule Russia for 17 years, Massie said. Catherine was one of the two most important rulers of Russia during the 300year reign of the Romanovs, said Massie. Along with the political reforms she ushered in, she can also be credited with cultural advancements that endure today, from literature to ballet. Peter the Great, Catherine’s predecessor by 37 years, brought in Western technology and made Russia a military power. “Catherine, building on that, brought Western culture and European culture and art, architecture and literature… to Russia,” Massie said. She wanted to bring enlightenment and reform to her country, but was no proponent of democratic rule. Catherine and other progressives of her era “wanted to create and enact reforms, but they thought reforms should come from the top down. They didn’t want people at the bottom of the layers rising up and imposing their own changes,” Massie said.

Accomplished local photographer’s solo exhibit of Iceland and Antarctica to be held at Spanish Village Art Center Noted local landscape and wildlife photographer Steve Gould, a Carmel Valley resident, will have a solo exhibition of images from Iceland and Antarctica at Gallery 21, Spanish Village Art Center, 1770 Village Place, in Balboa Park, San Diego, from Dec. 5 through Dec. 17. This summer, Gould spent two weeks in Iceland, felt by many to currently be the number one world destination for photographers. He has captured images of awesome Iceland landscapes, adorable puffins, and beautiful Icelandic horses. Iceland is at latitude 65° north. Two years ago, Gould journeyed to Antarctica and other parts of the Southern Ocean over the course of a month, and reached latitude 65° south. In this new exhibition, Gould juxtaposes images from both ends of the Earth: volcanoes and glaciers, icebergs and geysers, puffins and penguins.

AUTHOR continued from page B1 the plot. “There’s a teacher who is a celtic goddess, and she’s based on a real mythological goddess I researched.” For those who are familiar with the Del Mar Heights School, Allen and her dad may be recognizable, as they team up each

winter holiday season to perform “The Polar Express.” Allen, a longtime classical pianist, provides music and sound effects while her dad reads aloud. At home, the two rarely watch TV and are advocates of turning it off. “We watch movies, but no commercial TV except Chargers football,” said Paul Allen, who is working on a

website called “Turn Off the TV and Read.” On the site, he hope to provide tips for parents on how to encourage more reading and writing at home. Allen also is a big advocate of choosing books over TV — “It turns your brain off,” she said. “It’s really important to exercise the imagination,” she said. “The stronger the imagination, the more you learn, the more you can think of things, the more you can create more things.” To see more of Allen’s work or to find out where to purchase her books, visit her website at

Red Ribbon Week at Carmel Creek BY ALYSSA NASH-GOELITZ Carmel Creek Elementary School held a fantastic Red Ribbon week Oct. 22-26. Red Ribbon Week is the nation’s oldest and largest drug prevention program, reaching millions of Americans in the last weeks of October every year. By wearing red ribbons and participating in community anti-drug events, young people pledge to live a drug free life and pay tribute to DEA Special Agent Enrique “Kiki” Camarena. Some of the week’s activities included jump to keep your heart healthy, wear red to school, and bring a healthy snack. The big surprise for the students occurred Oct. 25 when the San Diego Sheriff’s Department landed a helicopter on the field. The Drug Enforcement Administration, San Diego Police Department, and Border Protection also volunteered their time to talk to the students about ways to stay safe and make healthy choices.

Thanksgiving thoughts at Del Mar Hills and Del Mar Heights Editor’s Note: We asked first graders at Del Mar Hills Academy and Del Mar Heights School how to make a Thanksgiving turkey dinner and what they are thankful for. Below are a few of their responses. For all responses received, visit and write “Thanksgiving: Del Mar Heights and Hills� in the search category. It will also be posted under the Schools category. Cristin Ebright’s first grade class at Del Mar Hills: You heat up the turkey in the oven for eight minutes and put mashed potatoes on it. I have a sugar-free Jolly Rancher for dessert. Just one. - Bryce. Get the turkey in the fields, you capture it. My dad cooks it in the oven for 10 minutes. Eat it with rice and strawberries. -Summer I don’t like eating turkey because I’m a vegetarian. I usually have tofu. We have mashed potatoes, roast beef, green beans, cranberries, and sometimes applesauce because it’s nice to have warm applesauce for Thanksgiving. Also apple cider. -Neta Cook it in the stove and then you get to eat it with other stuff for Thanksgiving. I do like the turkey skin. That’s the part I do like. -Niko My mom goes to cooking class and she’s in cooking class to learn how to work in a restaurant. She cooks it on the stove for 20 or 10 minutes. Last time I didn’t eat turkey though, I ate baby food. -Kaili Well I never had one before. My mom does not make Thanksgiving dinner, we just have normal dinners. I always don’t have the turkey, I have a real meal like carrots, fruits, vegetables, real food not like turkey. -Levi

You get a turkey from the forest. You put it in the oven for 23 minutes at hot temperature. -Madison Cristin Strain’s first grade class at Del Mar Heights: I’m thankful for my dog because he actually helps me go to sleep because he’s so big and fluffy. He’s very cozy. -Millie I’m thankful for the school because people be nice to us. -Nico I’m thankful for my dog because I hope she doesn’t die. -Nolan I’m thankful for my brother and my mom and my dad because they’re nice to me and they usually give me a lot of stuff. -Reece I’m thankful for my kitty because I love him. -Scarlett I’m thankful for my family because my family protects me. -Charlie I’m thankful for my cat because he’s really funny. He jumps on my dad’s car. -Molly I’m thankful for my family because I’ll be really sad if they’re gone. -Kaden I’m thankful for bats because they eat 600 mosquitos in one hour. -Danielle I’m thankful for my family because they keep me safe. -Autumn I’m thankful for everything because I am. -Shaylee — Compiled by Karen Billing See pages B16 and B17 for more schools.

‘Education Under Fire’ screening to be held Dec. 6 Baha’is of San Diego is the largest religious minority in Iran and they have been subjected to persecution for the last 30-plus years, according to its members. The government of Iran is prohibiting the Baha’i youth from attending colleges and universities in Iran just because they are Baha’is, members say. To increase awareness of this latest injustice, the Baha’is all round the world have organized a campaign to publicize what is being done to the young men and women who seek higher education in Iran. This campaign is called “Education Under Fire.” They are presenting a free screening of a short film detailing the human rights abuses denying education in Iran, including a panel discussion. This event will be held on Thursday, Dec. 6, from 1-5 p.m. at the Ocean Air Community Recreation Room, 4770 Fairport Way, San Diego, 92130. For more information, visit — Press release submission

AGENDA ROLL CALL AND CALL TO ORDER AGENDA ITEM: COMMUNITY (GENERAL) PLAN AMENDMENT GPA-12-02 Application: Draft 2013-2020 Housing Element update to the Del Mar Community Plan Location: City-wide Applicant: City of Del Mar Environmental Status: A Negative Declaration will be prepared for later consideration by the Del Mar City Council prior to its action on the draft Housing Element. Contact Person: Adam Birnbaum, AICP, Planning Manager Description: A request to amend the City of Del Mar Community Plan (General Plan) to update the Housing Element for the 2013-2020 Cycle in accordance with State requirements. The Planning Commission will review the draft Housing Element and will consider taking action to recommend that staff send the draft Housing Element to the State Department of Housing and Community Development for preliminary review and comment. Availability of Document The 2013-2020 draft Housing Element is a lengthy document. It will be posted to the City of Del Mar website at on or before Tuesday, November 27, 2012. It will also be available for review at Del Mar City Hall and the Del Mar Public Library. Background Information on the Del Mar Housing Element Under State law, every jurisdiction in California must adopt what is known as a General Plan with different segments, known as elements, to guide development in the community. The Del Mar Community (General) Plan was adopted in in 1976 and has been the subject of a number of amendments since that time. State law further requires that every General Plan contain one segment called a Housing Element which sets forth the City’s policies and programs to meet the existing and projected housing needs of all economic segments of the community. The goal is to establish land use policies and regulatory systems that accommodate opportunities for preservation and development of housing without undue constraints. The State Housing Element law also requires that each local jurisdiction’s Housing Element be subject to review and certiďŹ cation by the State Department of Housing and Community Development. While jurisdictions periodically review and amend different elements of their General Plan, California law is much more speciďŹ c in regard to the schedule for updates to the Housing Element segment, requiring an update at least every eight years. The current Housing Element planning period (cycle) under review in this agenda item runs from 2013 through 2020. Participation at the Planning Commission meeting In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, if you need special assistance to participate in this meeting, please contact the City Clerk’s ofďŹ ce at 1050 Camino del Mar, or by calling 858-755-9313.

Kitchen Shrink: Re-strutting its stuff – a lesson in turkey recycling BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Now that you survived the Thanksgiving gustatory orgy, the nation’s next culinary challenge rears its head– what to do with the carcass and uneaten meat from roughly 46 million turkeys? Here’s a primer to help you navigate through leftover land. When Grease meets Turkey Even though such rock star foodies like Emeril Lagasse and Paula Dean give the thumbs up for deep-frying a Thanksgiving turkey to yield a moist and juicy bird, you now have gallons of old grease on hand. Puh-leeze, don’t feed it down your drain. If you’re eco-inspired, you can donate your used vegetable oil to a recycling facility that will process the oil into a biodiesel fuel using a chemical process that strips out the glycerin. Heart bypass flambé, anyone? Rolling in Dough With assorted pastries and doughs you can whip some divine dishes in a jiff for lunches, appetizers or light dinners. Artisan puff pastry makes a flakier, lighter turkey pot pie or turkey wild mushroom strudel. Phyllo dough does a great riff on Greek spanakopita with turkey, spinach and feta or a turkey tenderloin wrapped in the paper-thin layered pastry. Use pizza crust for a turkey margarita pie or top with zesty bbq turkey strips. A Melting Pot Leftover turkey goes ethnic with such global concoctions as a fowl fiesta of south-of-the-border turkey quesadillas, tacos or burritos; turkey Italiano with turkey lasagna, turkey and wild mushroom risotto, or turkey alfredo with fettuccine; Mediterranean meals with a Persian stew of chopped turkey, ground walnuts and

pomegranate paste, Greek salad with turkey chunks, black olives, tomatoes and cukes, and turkey tabouli; or Yankee Doodle turkey with all-American cobb salad, bbq turkey burgers, or Sloppy Tom’s. Have a yen for Asian, whip up a pan of turkey egg foo young, turkey and ginger scallion lettuce wraps with hoison dipping sauce or turkey egg rolls with bean sprouts and shredded veggies. A Man, a Can and a Frying Pan Simple Simon, just add shredded turkey with a can of kidney beans and a dash of chili powder, cumin and cayenne and you have a skillet of turkey chili. A can of tomato sauce, cannellini beans, chunks of turkey, fresh garlic and Italian parsley, and voila— turkey pasta e fazol. Or combine turkey cubes with corn and limas, fresh tomatoes and a dot of butter for a southern succotash. Long-term parking Turkey is a freezer-friendly food that can last for several weeks in airtight storage containers. Separate breast slices for making easy sandwiches in a pinch, and wings and legs for snacking. Soup’s On Toss the whole carcass in a soup pot for a killer turkey noodle, wild rice, gumbo, lentil, tortilla, Vietnamese Pho or matzo ball. Shred breast meat into the broth for a thicker, heartier main meal dish. Or cook up this amazing curry-flavored Mulligatawny of Anglo-India origin By Chef/Partner Chris Idso of Pacifica Del Mar. Serve with this exotic turkey salad sandwich with curry and red grapes from Executive Chef Donald Lockhart of Cusp Dining & Drinks in the legendary Hotel La Jolla.

Grading underway at Watermark; a collection of new, luxury homes by Pardee Grading is underway at Watermark by Pardee Homes, a new neighborhood of luxury homes planned for the coveted Pacific Highlands Ranch master-planned community. This distinctive collection of homes is anticipated to open for sale in early 2013. “With limited coastal-close new home construction available, we have chosen to use this coveted location to build a breathtaking enclave of estate-like homes filled with impressive amenities,” said Matt Sauls, director of marketing for Pardee Homes. “From the over-sized gourmet kitchens to the expansive and luxurious master bedroom suites, Watermark will offer unsurpassed style and sophistication. Three unique floor plans will feature an array of room choices, such as an optional library, available outdoor living room, game nook or complete suite with private entry, to help you create your own vision of home.” Elegant architectural design and ecofriendly features and options will be the hallmark of Watermark, which will include three two-story floor plans with five bedrooms and square footage ranging from approximately 3,394 to 4,163 square feet. Eighty-seven homes are planned. “Watermark has been designed for today’s energy-conscious homebuyers by incorporating an array of standard and optional measures that boost energy efficiency, help reduce water consumption and improve indoor air quality,” said Sauls. “This is our LivingSmart® brand, and it is designed to offer added value to the homes at Water-

mark, providing homeowners with lower energy and water bills, greater indoor comfort and better resale value. With LivingSmart, energy efficiency exceeds California’s Title 24 criteria. Water-thrifty appliances, plumbing and the use of low VOC (volatile organic compound) materials are among the LivingSmart standards. Buyers can also add such features as photovoltaic systems for in-home solar power, whole house water filtration, and tankless water heaters.” Located in coastal-close Pacific Highlands Ranch, adjacent to Carmel Valley, Watermark offers residents exclusive use of the private, resort-style Pacific Highlands Ranch recreation center, as well as proximity to beaches, shopping and many highly rated public and private schools. The neighborhood will be served by schools in the Solana Beach School District and San Dieguito Union High School District. Established in 1921, Pardee Homes is active in California’s San Diego, Inland Empire and Los Angeles/Ventura markets, and in Las Vegas. The company emphasizes master-planned communities that include schools, parks and open space, and is noted for quality construction, customer service and dedication to the educational and civic goals of the communities in which it builds.
