BY KAREN BILLING What will be the impact of One Paseo on traffic in the community? With mitigation city engineers say it will be minimal. Some believe that. Others do not. City traffic engineers Farah Mahzari and Labib Qusem were called upon March 28 to answer the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board’s list of 25 detailed questions regarding their One Paseo traffic study.

Solana Beach City Council stays with plastic bag ban BY CLAIRE HARLIN If you’re a shopper of the Vons or CVS on Lomas Santa Fe Drive in Solana Beach, you’ll likely see some new signage going up that reads “Don’t forget your bags.” That’s right. While many in the city protested the plastic bag ban approved last year — and especially the 10-cent fee for paper bags that goes along with it — the Solana Beach City Council on March 27 made no formal moves when the issue was brought back to City Hall for discussion. Instead, they encouraged the city to put more effort into enforcement and promoting awareness regarding the ban. Councilman Tom Campbell made a motion to explore alternatives to the 10-cent paper bag fee, however, no other councilmembers seconded that motion, and the consensus of the council was that city staff should further educational programs to help integrate the ordinance into the community. Councilmembers said this should include, first and foremost, communication with store employees in order to thoroughly inform them about the city regulation and how they should educate customers. See BAN, Page 19

The board voiced concerns that the traffic study was “inadequate” in assuming there were few significant unmitigatable impacts despite an extra 24,000 average daily trips (ADT) on Del Mar Heights Road that currently sees an ADT of 40,000 cars. The engineers said that Kilroy Realty’s $6 million in roadway tweaks — such as road “lengthening,” new turn lanes, synchronized traffic lights and new traffic

signals — will keep traffic conditions on the roadways status quo. “We believe that the traffic study conforms to the traffic study manual, they’re mitigating all of their impacts, they’re not re-classifying any roadways and there’s no community plan amendment required (for the roads),” Mahzari said. “We, the city, cannot design the project or give them ideas, obviously you as a

SB Children’s Egg Hunt

board can make recommendations. We can only look at the project proposed and make sure they meet all the guidelines and mitigate all their impacts and we think that they’ve done that.” Mahzari said that without the project, driving eastbound on Del Mar Heights from Carmel Canyon Road takes 5.8 minutes to get to I-5, and it takes 6.3 minutes to make the trip westbound. With the project, she

said, overall only one-and-ahalf minutes is being added to an eastbound commute and 1.2 minutes added to the westbound trip because most of the impacts will be mitigated. After One Paseo is built, with all the mitigations complete, she said it will take 7.3 minutes to go eastbound on Del Mar Heights from Carmel Canyon to I-5 and westbound it See TRAFFIC, Page 6

Del Mar Highlands Town Center rejects Kilroy offer BY KAREN BILLING Kilroy Realty recently made a proposal to One Paseo’s potential future neighbor across the street, Del Mar Highlands Town Center. Kilroy offered to build the Highlands a $5 million parking garage to alleviate that center’s parking issues in exchange for the Highlands giving up its 150,000 square feet of entitlements (entitlements dictate the permitted building types that may be constructed on a property). Del Mar Highlands’ owner Donahue Schriber has rejected the offer. Bob Little, Kilroy Realty vice president of development, said he is disappointed that Donahue Schriber turned down Kilroy’s offer.

“We proposed building a parking structure on their site to make a significant improvement to their parking situation which everyone in the community talks about constantly as a problem,” Little said, saying Kilroy would get nothing out of the garage except provide a “huge community benefit” by improving the Highlands’ parking situation. Little added that as the Highlands is entitled to build an additional 150,000 square feet on its property, that additional square footage will bring more cars, more daily trips. So by retiring that entitlement, it would save Carmel Vally from having even more cars on its roads. See OFFER, Page 19

BY CLAIRE HARLIN The Del Mar City Council on April 1 added a new chapter to its municipal code to address a new phenomenon that has emerged as a fun and convenient way to dine for city residents, but as uncharted regulatory territory for city governments. Mobile food trucks, which have gained popularity through a number of TV shows and have thrived off of their interesting food concepts and ability to serve anywhere and anytime, can now officially be a part of Del Mar’s dining offerings, but with much more regulation that when they popped up at the parking lot across from Seagrove Park and began operating last year as a weekly evening event — much to the alarm of many residents and city officials.

Del Mar to preserve historic bathhouse pilings seldom seen by the community BY CLAIRE HARLIN There are some concrete structures on Del Mar’s beach at the foot of 11th and 12th streets that are said to hold some aesthetic value, that look“Stonehengey,” said Councilwoman Sherryl Parks, but they likely haven’t been noticed by many because they are only visible only during the middle of winter and extremely low tides. These pilings, originating from the Casa Del Mar Hotel Bathhouse that once stood on the beach, were declared historic and leased in 1988 by the City Council when the State Lands Commission (SLC) sought to demolish them. On April 1, the council voted to renew its lease of that land — a lease that costs nothing but requires about $3,000 in permit fees. Had they not renewed the lease with the state, the city would have had to fund the removal of the pilings. “I’m a regular on the beach and I was shocked to actually see them,” said Assistant City Manager Mark Delin about the pilings, which look like a line of

Councilwoman Lee Haydu replied, “But we don’t want to remove something we don’t see either.” Mayor Terry Sinnott said it’s unfortunate that the historical site has gone unnoticed and that perhaps some educational signage would benefit the community. “If we go through all the trouble to designate a historical area, it might be nice to have something for people to understand it,” he said.

Northwestern Division officer focused on crime Del Mar city manager receives a raise, major kudos from the council prevention, encourages residents to communicate BY CLAIRE HARLIN After a conducting highly favorable performance review of his first year of employment, the Del Mar City Council on April 1 voted to increase city manager Scott Huth’s $180,000 salary by 2.5 percent, in addition to other benefits added to his compensation package. Huth, the former Coronado director of public services, came in to his position with the city during the drafting of the Village Specific Plan, which involved numerous public meetings and demanded much time of city employees, council members said. In his first year, he also worked hard on the city’s lawsuit, filed with Solana Beach and the San Dieguito River Park, against the Del Mar Fairgrounds regarding its master plan. “He worked hard to find all the information we needed and kept pounding until we got what we wanted,” said Councilwoman Lee Haydu. The performance raise constitutes a $375 per month increase, and the city also approved paying for a short- and longterm disability insurance premium at about $2,000 annually. A cost of living adjustment, not to exceed 3 percent annually, will also go into effect and be placed annually on Jan. 1. The adjustment will be based on the San Diego Regional Consumer Price Index (CPI) as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In terms of leave, Huth’s contract will also be amended to allow him to sell back up to 40 hours of leave per year once his leave balance reaches 400 hours. This was proposed due to the possibility that it may be hard to take allotted vacation time to due the work load, and the current situation would lead to the loss of leave. Haydu said that she has received calls and emails regarding work from the city manager, even while he is on vacation — meaning that “a vacation is not truly a vacation” for the city manager. Mayor Terry Sinnott said that although he supports the contract adjustments, he hopes to see the city consider bonuses instead of salary increases in the future, as well as revisit the terms of how it conducts compensation reviews.

BY KAREN BILLING Natalie Hone, Northwestern Division’s community relations officer (CRO), is enjoying her time serving Carmel Valley, taking an active role in keeping the community safe. Hone has been in Carmel Valley for about a year and a half, coming from the mid-city and western divisions. She replaced Adrian Lee, who is now an acting sergeant at the Northwestern Division. Hone said she loves the Northwestern Division, especially because Northwestern Division the community is so involved. “We know this is a nice communi- Community ty and we know it’s a safe community Relations Officer and the people that I talk with want to Natalie Hone. keep it that way,” Hone said. The police department just went through one of its largest allocation and promotion processes that they’ve had in recent years. Through the process, Northwestern gained a new lieutenant in Lt. Stephanie Rose. Rose comes to Northwestern from the mid-city division. Captain Manny Guaderrama still serves at the helm of Northwestern Division. Hone said this division has very low crime rates. The biggest crime problems in Carmel Valley are residential burglaries and car prowls, the majority of which are crimes of opportunity — cases of doors left unlocked, windows left open, cars being unlocked and valuables left in plain site. “It’s the little things you don’t think about, the window cracked in the back of the house,” Hone said. For example, on Monday, March 25 between 2:20 p.m. and 3:45 p.m., a home on Amberglades Lane was burglarized. The suspect gained access to the home through a side door to the garage left open, as well as the door left open connecting the garage to the home. The suspect took two security safes with jewelry and a .357 Magnum handgun. Hone said she wants to close those little gaps that make

it easier for a criminal to slip in and steal property. She said most criminals like to take the easier route so it’s up to you to make your home a harder target. “I’m all about education,” Hone said. As a community relations officer (CRO), she is available for free security surveys for homes or businesses. She is also willing to come out and speak to homeowners association groups or Neighborhood Watch groups on a range of safety topics. “There are rumors of budget cuts and personnel moving but the police department keeps CROs consistent because they know how important it is for us to connect with the community and share information,” Hone said. She stresses working on crime prevention — she’d rather not meet residents after they’ve become a victim of crime, she’d rather work with them before to make their homes and neighborhoods as safe as possible. “There’s a lot you can do and a lot of things we offer,” Hone said. “If we make that connection there can be a lot of positive change.” The most positive results can come out of residents keeping an eye out on their surroundings and reporting anything that seems suspicious. Two weeks ago, an arrest was made in the community near Torrey Pines High School after someone called to report that a vehicle that had been parked on the street for some time with two young adults inside. When police went to investigate they found the vehicle’s driver had a felony warrant for narcotics. The people in the vehicle were both heroin dealers and users and were arrested on possession and the intent to sell. “If no one called it in, we probably wouldn’t have caught them and they would have kept selling and using in this community,” Hone said. Even if it seems insignificant, Hone said to “always, always, always call.” She said people shouldn’t worry about being a bother, even calling in to report solicitors without permits from the city to solicit is welcome because sometimes they are people casing homes to burglarize.

Astronaut talks about wife’s brain injuries at Scripps conference BY STEVEN MIHAILOVICH Capt. Mark Kelly qualifies as a bona fide American hero. He commanded four space shuttle missions, including the Endeavor’s final voyage, flew 39 combat missions over Iraq during the Gulf War, and has logged more than 6,000 flight hours as a Navy pilot. As the keynote speaker at the eighth annual Brain Injury Rehabilitation Conference on March 22-23, Kelly was qualified to address the roomful of physicians, neurosurgeons, therapists and other brain injury specialists for another reason. Kelly is the husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot through the head during the attempted assassination on Jan. 8, 2011. Talking about that topic forced Kelly to choke up and hold back tears a couple of times during his hour-long presentation. “As Gaby entered Congress for the first time in 2007, I thought I had the risky job,” Kelly told the audience. “I’d flown 39 combat missions. I’d landed on an aircraft carrier nearly 400 times. By that point in my career, I’d flown two flights into space already. I thought I had the risky job. But as it would turn out, Gaby is the one who would nearly lose her life serving her country.” In the speech, the toughness Kelly showed during his daring exploits and rigorous, and often dangerous, training contrasted with the vulnerability he experienced in helping his wife through the ongoing recovery. The audience was often riveted to hear a paragon of American courage and stoicism talk about feeling almost helpless at times.

Mark Kelly “On Jan. 8, 2011, there was no countdown clock,” Kelly noted. “For the big events in my life, like a space flight or a combat mission, they normally start at a specific time. With a space flight, you even have a countdown clock going toward zero. But on Jan. 8, the day Gaby was injured, there was no clock. Just the ringing of my phone when I got a call that put me on this trajectory — this crazy wild ride where I was going to have make an enormous amount of decisions and not really knowing anywhere it’s going to be going ... (I) hung up and then I started trying to figure out, OK, what I do now?” Kelly wove intricate details of glorious victories, horrific setbacks and excruciating doubts into a message of hope and perseverance that reverberated with an audience that daily treats patients suffering from traumatic brain injury (TBI). Of course, getting shot through the head isn’t the only source of TBI and the 1.7 million annual cases in the United States and more than 300,000 sports-related concussions each year attest to that fact. The two-day confer-

ence was held at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa and hosted by the Rehabilitation Center at Scripps Memorial Hospital. Mild traumatic brain injury or concussion, especially in sports and in youth, as well as the use of robotics for TBI served as the major themes this year. The annual conference has grown from almost 30, mostly local attendees in 2006 to more than 200 participants from around the world this year, according to Michael Lopatz, medical director of the Scripps Medical Rehabilitation Center and Brain Injury Program. Top specialists from across the country spoke about the latest advances and techniques in research and treatment, including Dr. Sanjay Ghosh, neurosurgeon at Scripps La Jolla Trauma Center, who spoke about modern care of severe TBI in intensive care units and trauma centers. With thousands of returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffering from TBI and the publicity surrounding tragedies such as the suicide of former San Diego Charger Junior Seau and the shooting of Giffords, the spotlight is squarely on TBI like never before. “I think that the increased awareness in TBI is extremely important,” Lopatz said. “Raising awareness about traumatic brain injury, especially for prevention of repeated concussions, and now what we’re learning (about) the longterm consequences of that, things that have been suggested to be the issues in some of our football players, these are the kinds of increasing awareness that I think is very positive and may help to save lives down the line.”

TRAFFIC continued from page 1 will take 7.5 minutes. Some planning board members and audience members were unconvinced, one resident saying it was “impossible to believe� that with the number of trips One Paseo would generate, traffic would only be made worse by the short amount of time cited by the city traffic engineers. Qusem said the reason why it will work is because of the mixed use program; One Paseo’s different uses will draw people in and out at different times of the day, not all out on the road at the same time. He said it would be more or less similar to what people experience today because mitigations will get it back to an acceptable level of service. Planning Board Chair Frisco White said there is still much to review about One Paseo, as the draft environmental report looks to become final in the next few months. “As we continue to review this project, we have to consider what is the benefit of this project to the community. That is the question we will dwell upon and research,� White said. “There’s a lot to look at beyond traffic, it’s a lifestyle issue as well.� The meeting took about three hours and the Ocean Air MUR was filled to capacity. The hundreds in atten-

dance became very familiar with the term “level of serviceâ€? or in engineer speak,“LOS.â€? LOS “Dâ€? is what the engineers aim for as an acceptable level, 35 to 55 seconds spent at an intersection. A LOS E is considered unacceptable, with a delay of 55 to 88 seconds. Beyond 88 seconds in delay, an intersection becomes an F and there’s no limit to that failure — it’s anything beyond 88 seconds. Del Mar Heights Road and the northbound I-5 ramp is where the traffic will get the stickiest, according to Qusem. “That’s the biggest issue we have to work on,â€? said Qusem. “With that lot vacant, it’s already failing‌ we’re starting with a base that’s already at capacity with the vacant lot.â€? In the near-term and at full build-out, the I-5-Del Mar Heights interchange area will have an LOS E. However, even if only the 550,000-square-foot office building is built on the One Paseo site, that intersection will still fail at a LOS E at the 2030 full build-out of Carmel Valley. With the projection of the 2030 full build-out, the traffic engineers said they assume everything that has been entitled to be built in Carmel Valley has been built, including 150,000 additional square feet at Del Mar Highlands Town Center and a connection between I-5 and SR-56 and a widened I-5.

“The City staff confirmed what I have saying about Carmel Valley traffic — without One Paseo you get the Del Mar Highlands Town Center expansion (they announced it), plus the 550,000 square feet of office development with no traffic improvements,� Robert Little, vice president of development for Kilroy Realty said after the meeting via email. “With One Paseo you get mitigation (traffic solutions) that take into account both developments, thus it is smart development, resulting in a worst-case delay counted in seconds.� Some project opponents insist that the Highlands’ 150,000 square feet was, in fact, not included in the study and board members also questioned whether 5/56 connections will be made by 2030—wondering if the roads will actually fare far worse until those improvements are made. “Everything else we can mitigate to a level D or better,� Qusem said. “There will be no delays or similar to what you experience today. This project gives the ability to mitigate impacts where the office (the 550,000 square feet the land is entitled for) does not.� The study says that one intersection will actually improve significantly—by installing a traffic signal at Carmel Creek Road and Del Mar Trails it gets that intersection up to a B grade. The project’s proposed mitigation of signal synchronization will be a first

for San Diego. The closest area that uses synchronization is the city of San Marcos on San Marcos Boulevard, and Mahzari said they report a 30 percent better progression of traffic. Conservatively, One Paseo is projecting a 10-to-15-percent improvement with the synchronization system, which monitors traffic by satellite, adding green time to roads that are experiencing back-ups. Board member Anne Harvey pointed out that even if a car hit every green light on Del Mar Heights Road, the ramp meters on the I-5 are what cause backups and those are controlled by Caltrans and the freeway level of service. Qusem said that the planned improvements for El Camino Real and Via de la Valle (replacing the bridge past San Dieguito Road and widening El Camino Real and Via de la Valle to four lane roads) would also help get cars off of Del Mar Heights Road in the future. “In the future� is a stumbling block for the board, White said, because it isn’t certain when those city-driven improvements will be made. “It’s hard to believe that widening Via de la Valle is going to shift traffic off Del Mar Heights,� board member Nancy Novak said. Novak, who represents the neighborhood off High Bluff, had a lot of concerns about the project increasing cut-through traffic through their streets, especially near

Solana Highlands School where they just worked to curb traffic with a new stop sign. Extra turn lanes onto High Bluff are part of the traffic improvements and Novak said they just seem to be “an invitation� for cutthrough traffic. Mahzari and Qusem said that is not the case. “We want the intersections to work. Giving extra capacity isn’t going to make cars go on High Bluff. Instead of people turning one by one they will be able to turn two at a time,� Qusem said, “It will be faster to stay on Del Mar Highlands and El Camino Real than shortcut through residential streets,� Mahzari said. “Unless the signals aren’t working, there’s no reason to cut through residential streets.� Mahzari said that if it does cause an impact, they could take steps to mitigate the issue. White said that if they are waiting until phase three of the project to be built to solve a problem like cutthrough traffic, it might be too late. “The residents to the north of the project will be the most impacted so we may need this question to be more thoroughly addressed,� White said. Board members pointed out that it may take some time for all these mitigations to be complete and the roads could reach failure level in the meantime.

Qusem said that their concerns are the reasons that projects have to be phased and that the developer won’t be able to proceed to the next building phase until the impacts are mitigated. “That’s the point of the phasing plan, to control the project,� Qusem said. The board also questioned whether the existing street systems will be overburdened and cause the circulation system to not function as intended by the 1975 Community Plan. Mahzari said that Kilroy is not proposing to reclassify the roads so the project is staying within the community plan, mitigating for everything added to the system and it won’t change the character or function of the roadways. Harvey argued that their mitigations will change the roadways, as the community plan intended for Carmel Valley’s roads to have well-landscaped medians and to be “natural and serene to drive.� “These mitigations will change the character of the streets entirely. When you say it won’t change the function, it wasn’t intended to function like Mira Mesa Boulevard,� Harvey said. Mahzari pointed out that the streets do have a landscaping plan and she disagreed that the mitigations will drastically change the character of the community.

RDA dissolution shakes up city finance process, but Solana Beach handed positive audit for 2011-2012 BY CLAIRE HARLIN The Solana Beach City Council on March 27 approved the city’s comprehensive annual financial report for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Although the city’s auditor deemed it an “unusual” year due to the recent dissolution of the Redevelopment Agency (RDA), there were no concerns about the city’s statements. “We felt that the controls were solid,” said Richard Kikuchi, a partner with local auditing firm Lance, Soll & Lunghard (LSL), which conducted the audit. The city had to report extraordinary losses due to the dissolution of Solana Beach’s RDA, which would have supplied funding for revitalizations projects such as La Colonia Park and the Cedros Avenue train station but was nixed along with more than 400 others statewide. The move, made by the governor’s office to address state budget woes, went into effect on Feb. 1, 2012, after which the City Council then had to establish itself as the successor agency. Over the course of the year, the city moved its assets, liabilities and reserves from the RDA and reported them as a private-purpose trust. The council implemented a sevenmember board, which included the mayor, county education superintendent, a community member and several other leaders, to oversee the process. Kikuchi presented a report of the financial audit, which involved assessing the city’s balances and internal controls. He handed down an “unqualified opinion,” which means the amounts in the city’s financial statements are correct, and no material weak-

ness or significant deficiencies were noted. The audit took more than 500 hours, he added, which consisted of much planning, risk assessment, documentation and testing of internal controls. The city’s net assets increased by about $3.4 million to about $76 million, with business-type net assets totaling about $30 million and government net assets totaling about $45 million, reported a city financial staff member. Business activities also exceeded expenses by about $3 million, with revenue coming in at $24.8 million and expenditure equalling $21.5 million. The general fund reported a revenue of $798,000. The general fund reserves ended with a balance of about $7.3 million, up by about $800,000 from last year. Kikuchi said the audit was handed down much later than it should have, as the year was an “anomaly” due do the RDA’s dissolution. “That really threw a wrench in the lives of many finance people and auditors in the state of California this last year,” he said. “It was a lot of work.” In 2015, the city will have another shake-up in its financial procedures that will greatly affect numbers in the final audit, Kimichi added. Issued in 2012 by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB), a new public pension accounting rule will go into effect that will mandate the city report unfunded pension liabilities in its statement of net position. “In most cities across the state and across the nation,” Kikuchi said, “that’s going to be a big number.”

David Twyman is Troop 765’s 29th Eagle Scout

David Twyman of Troop 765 was honored on March 30 at Torrey Pines High School for earning his Eagle Scout Rank. It was a busy year for Troop 765 as David is the 9th Scout from the troop to earn his Eagle rank in 2012. David is a junior at Canyon Crest Academy and balances his time between academics, Scouts and competing as a threesport varsity athlete in water polo, basketball and swimming. The beneficiary for David’s Eagle Scout project was Olivewood Gardens in National City. Olivewood Garden’s mission is to provide garden and nutrition education to students from underserved communities. Part of their garden includes a greenhouse that could not

David Twyman be used during the hot summer months. David built a wooden frame over the greenhouse to hold a shade net that can be moved to cover the top and south side of the greenhouse. This allows Olivewood Gardens staff to use the greenhouse all year around. In addition,

another part of David’s project was to paint six rain barrels with water conservation slogans. He logged 351 total hours for his project. David has been very active in troop activities, including summer camps at Catalina, Oregon, the Sierras, a 10-day back pack trip to the Philmont Scout Ranch and a hike to the summit of Mt. Whitney. In addition to troop community service activities, David spent his Memorial Day weekend for four years in Mexico, building houses for the Come Build Hope project. He gives back to his troop by helping the younger Scouts and recently led a group of them to earn their First Aid merit badge. He has already earned his Bronze Palm and is working on his

Gold. “In order to reach this plateau, I needed the help of so many people from my Troop and my friends. Most of all, I would like to thank my mom, Amy Seki, and my sister, Katie Twyman, for all the love and support I have received from them over the years. You guys are the best no matter how hard of a time you’ve given me and I can’t put into words how thankful I am,” David said.

Tickets on sale for April 13 Casa de Amistad annual fundraiser

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Casa de Amistad, a Solana Beach nonprofit organization that’s provided dual-language families with educational support for 15 years, is once again gearing up for its annual fundraising event on Saturday, April 13. But in addition to featuring a dinner, dance and auction for the organization’s loyal donors, the event this year will also serve as a celebration of the students whose lives have been impacted tremendously by the help they’ve received there. For example, Arturo Sotelo, a former student of Casa, will attend via video feed from the University of California Los Angeles, where he now studies business as a freshman. Having been impacted greatly by two Casa volunteers while growing up in Solana Beach, he now gives university tours to potential college students who face similar challenges that he did as a kid. “Now he says he might have dropped out of school if it weren’t for those volunteers who helped him,” said Casa de Amistad Executive Director Nicole Green-Mione, adding that Sotelo is a leader at UCLA and has been chosen to participate in events such as Raza Day, which is geared toward promoting diversity at UCLA. Another guest of honor at the event will be Judge H. Lee Sarokin, a retired U.S. district judge and U.S. appeals court judge, who volunteers as a mentor and tutor at Casa. In addition to attending the fundraiser as part of the Casa de Amistad family, he will be playing with his jazz band, Joe Satz Trio. Sarokin has been working with the same student at Casa during his three years there, following her from third to fifth grade and teaching her about music and public speaking. The student just started learning to play the viola, Green-Mione said. Casa de Amistad will enjoy having some more space at its location at the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church when the church is done being remodeled within the next year, but Green-Mione said there is still a need at the nonprofit for more volunteers, as there are still 50 kids on the waiting list for private tutoring. The fundraiser will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. on April 13 at the Del Mar Hilton, located at 15575 Jimmy Durante Blvd. For more information, email director@casadeamistad. org, call (858) 509-2590 or visit

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest to mark Golden Anniversary with gala event BY DIANE Y. WELCH On Thursday, May 9, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest (PPPSW) will celebrate its Golden Anniversary. The half-century milestone will be marked with the affiliate’s biggest fundraiser of the year, a gala dinner at Hilton San Diego Bayfront. This energizing night will feature a program that celebrates PPPSW’s causes along with an opportunity to reconnect with a motivated community of friends, said Kathleen Strauss, event co-chair along with Nora Taylor Jaffe. Dr. Katharine Sheehan, medical director for PPPSW, with over 30 years of involvement, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award and seven honorary chairs will be recognized for their generous contributions to this major affiliate of Planned Parenthood that includes San Diego, Riverside and Imperial counties. There will also be a funding match to The Strauss Family Foundation’s pledge of $50,000. Guest speakers include Sarah Weddington, attorney, professor, and women’s rights advocate, best known for successfully arguing the landmark Roe v. Wade case before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973; Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America; and Jessica Valenti, feminist author and blogger, and founder of Bob Filner, mayor of San Diego, will speak briefly and several local elected officials will be guests. A presentation of video highlights and photographs taken over the five decades will showcase past achievements with an eye on future growth. According to PPPSW’s website, a San Diego clergyman, visiting a parishioner in a maternity ward in 1963, was asked for advice to secure aid in family planning. When he sought out an agency to which he might refer her, he discovered there was none. Because of this experience Reverend Arthur G. Elcombe began to recruit a group who soon established Planned Parenthood of San Diego. Sara Moser became a part of that group in 1968. “I didn’t realize then that it was such a new organization,” she said. Her involvement was personal after she had helped two former neighbors get illegal abortions. Both married – one with three children, the other with four – they

Soon after that Moser relocated to San Diego. Her move coincided with the passage of the Therapeutic Abortion Act which had been made legal in 1967. “And so I jumped right in,” Moser said. Planned Parenthood is about helping families – and particularly women – control their fertility and have children when they want them, said Moser who reflected that it has been, “great watching Planned Parenthood grow.” What started out as educational outreach then developed into itinerant clinics in other organizations’ locations, eventually became a permanent clinic over a furniture store on Morena Blvd. Moser, then a volunteer, provided pregnancy counseling there but soon became a staff member. She later served on the board of directors and spearheaded raising money for Planned Parenthood’s first building on the corner of Fifth and Hawthorn in San Diego. She was also hired to run a public affairs program and helped create the Action Fund that provided political campaign funding. Samuel Ward, a San Diego attorney — currently serving on PPPSW’s board of directors — started his involvement on the board of the Action Fund about six years ago. Prior to that he had been active in local politics and focused on Planned Parenthood’s role as a bellwether for political candidates. “If you could get Planned Parenthood’s endorsement, I knew that there were a lot of other things we would agree on. And if you didn’t, I knew that this would

be the beginning of a long line of issues that we would disagree on,” Ward explained. As Ward began to become more active in the affiliate, it gave him the opportunity to have a deeper knowledge of the services provided. “Our role in providing no-cost birth control or our role in helping to develop comprehensive sexuality education programs are just a couple of the ways that the organization contributes to our community,” he said. But more than that, PPPSW strives to fill holes in communities where there is a lack of basic reproductive services, he added. To further help fill that need and to continue to fund the 19 health care centers in the region it is hoped that last year’s record of $1 million raised will be topped at this year’s gala. The anniversary fundraiser kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception followed by dinner. “We hope you’ll join us for the biggest night of the year for reproductive health,” said Strauss.

Local mother and daughter making great strides for FARE Walk for Food Allergy

Charlotte and Michelle Bailey hope people will join them at the FARE Walk for Food Allergy. Courtesy photo “We’re very honest with her, we don’t sugar-coat anything,” Bailey said. “She needs to take it seriously. We’ve met children who are bullied because of their food allergies so it’s important to us that she’s not afraid to stand up and speak for herself and not be embarrassed. She’s a trooper.” The Baileys have taught Charlotte that she needs to be her own advocate. They have to always be aware because her allergens can pop up in unexpected places — especially as coconut is especially popular these days with coconut oil and coconut water. At a recent breakfast outing, Charlotte asked about one menu item that turned out to be cooked in coconut oil. They also have to be careful at places that serve smoothies because coconut water is used in some of the smoothies. “It can be extremely overwhelming,” Bailey said of looking out for hidden allergens. “It’s something you can manage if you have the right information.”

She welcomes talking with other parents, sharing her stories and fears about what they can do and how to make sure their children are safe. The more Bailey has gotten involved, the more she realizes just how many children suffer from food allergies—one in every 13 in the U.S. or about two in every classroom. “It’s severe, urgent and people need to be aware. I don’t think a lot of people understand the severity of food allergies. It’s helpful to raise awareness,” Bailey said. Just in March, a 19-year-old in Georgia who was allergic to peanuts died after eating a cookie that contained peanut oil. His friend gave it to him and swore it didn’t have peanuts. Also in March, a 7-year-old in Virginia died after having a reaction at her school and the school was unprepared to handle the reaction. “The key is prevention,” Bailey said, stressing how much FARE works to get information out, provide options and ensure people and places know how to help in the event of an emergency, because reactions are quick and can be life-threatening. The organization works with a variety of organizations, from hotels to restaurants to theme parks. Locally, FARE has put its resources toward a successful effort at SeaWorld. Not only does the park now offer gluten-free and allergen-friendly Shamu-shaped chocolate bars, FARE also sponsored employee training so they know how to handle guests with allergen needs. FARE also provides community grants and raises funds and awareness through 67 walks across the country. A patient education conference is held every year to learn of new advances and cutting-edge technology, some of it happening right here in San Diego. A new peanut allergy patch is currently being researched at Rady Children’s Hospital. The patch aims to increase tolerance in patients by exposing them to small amounts of the allergens to help prevent it from being a life-threatening reaction. “It’s really exciting, compared to when I first started, I feel like research has already come really far,” Bailey said.

BY KAREN BILLING For the last two years, Carmel Valley 6-year-old Charlotte Bailey has been the top fundraiser for the San Diego Walk for Food Allergy. In two years, Charlotte, who is allergic to peanuts, pecans and coconut, has raised $7,550 and has already raised $5,800 for this year’s walk. The Baileys have been so involved with the walk that the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) organization asked Charlotte’s mom Michelle to chair this year’s event. She was more than willing to take the lead. “I was really flattered and honored to chair the event in support of Charlotte but also to help reach out to the community and spread the word to make the walk even more successful,” Bailey said. The walk will be held Saturday, June 29, at NTC Park at Liberty Station. Registration is free and individuals and teams can set their own fundraising goal. This year’s walk is different as it supports FARE, a new group representing a merger between the two leading food allergy organizations, Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network and the Food Allergy Initiative. “My biggest hope is that this reaches somebody who was maybe in my position, just finding out their child has food allergies and asking ‘How can I get involved? How can I help?’ Getting involved was one of the best things I could’ve done,” Bailey said. Charlotte was 2 years old when they discovered her allergies. As a baby she would react to eating eggs so the doctor advised them to be careful when they first tried to feed her peanut butter. Sure enough, a dab of peanut butter on the side of her lip triggered reaction and they took her through a complete allergy test. Charlotte will be 7 in July and as she’s gotten older there are new challenges. Michelle has to put her trust in other people, that they understand what Charlotte faces and she also has to put trust in her young daughter to be responsible. “I have to trust that we’ve prepared her to do the right things and make the right decisions,” Bailey said. Charlotte knows that if there’s no label, she can’t eat it.

Young CV resident top-ranked tennis player in Southern California BY GIDEON RUBIN Winning a USTA regional tournament is an impressive accomplishment for any youth tennis player. When an 11-year-old emerges from a field of predominantly bigger, stronger and more experienced players in a 14-and-under bracket carrying the trophy, it tends to attract a bit more attention. Such is the case for Brandon Nakashima, whose surprise showing in last month’s Long Beach tournament helped catapult him to elite status in national and regional polls. Nakashima, a Carmel Valley resident who attends Keystone Academy, is ranked No. 2 in the nation and is the topranked player in Southern California in the most recent 12-and-under USTA rankings. The rising Carmel Valley star will compete this month in a prestigious national youth event that could shoot his stock up even higher. Nakashima will travel to Delray Beach, Fla., for the April 7-12 USTA Boys’ & Girls’ 12s National Spring Championships. The tournament is a qualifier for the Longines Future Tennis Aces tournament, with the boys’ and girls’ champions competing amid an intensely competitive international field in June on the storied clay courts of Roland Garros Stadium in Paris, France, that are the site of the annual French Open “It would mean a lot because that’s where they play some of the biggest clay tournaments,” Nakashima said. But Nakashima’s coaches are taking a long-term view towards his development, building on his solid foundation for a career with seemingly limitless potential. “We try not to get too excited about what he’s doing now,” his coach, Angel Lopez said. “The goal is how good he can be 10 years from now. “He’s like a little tree and we kind of want to make him a big tree.” Nakashima’s tree, however, is already yielding fruit. His performance in the Long Beach tournament followed an appearance in the finals of USTA Winter Nationals

in Phoenix earlier this year. Lopez attributes Nakashima’s success to a fundamentally sound game and a solid foundation that are products of a great work ethic. Nakashima practices three hours a day, which Lopez attributes to a passion for tennis that he says is rare. “A lot of kids like tennis but not a lot of kids love tennis,” Lopez said. “It’s something I see once a decade.” Lopez believes Nakashima’s passion for the game is a contributing factor in his success. “It’s a big part of it,” Lopez said. “If it was a pain in the butt for him to go out there every day I don’t think he’d do it.” Nakashima said he developed his passion for tennis when he was practically a toddler. He was 3 when his grandfather, Anh Pham, first starting hitting balls to him on local tennis courts. He started taking private lessons when he was 7. His passion for the tennis grew as he began idolizing tennis star Roger Federer, whose game and playing style

he’s tried to emulate. Asked what he liked about Federer, Nakashima said “just how he’s calm and pretty smooth. He doesn’t get that emotional.” Some of those qualities seem to have rubbed off on Nakashima. “He doesn’t get too excited and he doesn’t really get too mad, he’s a cool cucumber type of kid,” Lopez said of Nakashima. “If he hits a great shot he doesn’t celebrate too much, if he hits a bad shot you’d never know he made a bad shot.” These days, Nakashima isn’t making too many bad shots. Lopez described Nakashima as a “smooth dude” who doesn’t have any readily apparent weaknesses that opponents can pick apart — a scary prospect for any youth-level opponent. “He’s a complete all-court player and he’s got every tool in his toolbox,” Lopez said. “He’s got stuff in his bag that other kids don’t have.” Just as impressive is Nakashima’s down-to-earth persona, something Lopez attributes to the influence of his mother, Cris. “He respects the teacher, he respects what’s being taught to him and he respects the game,” Lopez said. “A lot of it is nature and a lot of it is nurture too.” And although Nakashima’s long-term development remains his primary focus, Lopez admits it’s hard not to be excited about his present-day successes, let alone the prospect of him advancing to Paris. “It would be a great accomplishment and it would be a great experience for him to go to Paris and experience that,” Lopez said. But Lopez said the smart money is riding on the future of a player whose combination of ability and work ethic has the potential to be pretty special. “I would bet on it,” Lopez said.

The Fair — smoke free but not cruelty free? Elephants have been viewed throughout history with a sense of awe. In the fourth century Aristotle referred to the elephant as “the beast which passeth all others in wit and mind.” “Natures great masterpiece,” poet John Donne wrote of elephants, “the only harmless great thing. Elephants are magnificent, highly complex, social animals living in extended family groups The largest land mammal, elephants are genetically designed to move and forage most of the day; this constant movement is necessary for their psychological and physical well-being. Elephants in captive environments suffer from captivity-induced physical and psychological health problems. Health problems include debilitating foot and joint problems, arthritis, digestive disorders, stereotypical behaviors (neurotic behaviors resulting from severe confinement).

Other problems include reproductive system shutdown, and high infant mortality rate. There is no “elephant whisperer” coaxing these creatures into submission. Captivity is contrary to everything these giant mammals are about and is done through cohesive force-- beating, chaining, the use of bullhooks and electrical hotshots and social isolation. Additional callous treatment of these sensitive animals is imposed during the rides. The chair or Howdah attached to the back of the elephant is miserable, causing irritation and blistering from the side to side motion and weight of the riders. Videos, witnesses and photos attesting to the heartless practices at Have Trunks Will Travel (HTWT) were submitted to the board in the past. The board turned a blind eye. A visit by a board member to HTWT “did not turn up any abusive practices.” With so much at stake, wouldn’t

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

City traffic engineers drink Kilroy Koolaid Apparently the two city traffic engineers who were present to answer the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board’s questions at the meeting of March 28 concerning the impacts of the massive proposed One Paseo project forgot that they were public employees whose first duty is to protect the interests of the communities of San Diego and that they owe the Carmel Valley community an independent, objective assessment. Apparently they believed that they were Kilroy’s employees, at least they acted as though they were. They did their best to minimize and brush away the obvious significant impacts of adding 24,000 additional trips per day to our already congested roads. “Mitigations” were to solve the problem and would keep the intersections along Del Mar Heights Road functioning. Chief of these was the widening of Via de la Valle and the bridge on El Camino Real, although, by their own admission, this would remove only a few thousand cars, at best, from Del Mar Heights Road. There was talk of additional left turn lanes and of lengthening the onramp to I-5 northbound, although it had, of course, to be admitted that cars would continue to queue up along Del Mar Heights Road to get on that freeway. Perhaps a diamond lane onramp would help? How lovely – and useless. There was also the mention of speed bumps on High Bluff Drive to discourage the use of the residential neighborhood by drivers attempting to avoid the gridlock on Del Mar Heights Road. And then there was Kilroy’s ever popular “synchronized traffic lights” ploy. These lights would be “satellite” controlled and presumably more effective; however, the engineers had to admit they had not seen them in action anywhere and could only refer to the synchronized lights on San Marcos Boulevard. Of course, they had not talked to the engineers in San Marcos nor examined the functioning of traffic on that boulevard themselves. Had they done either, they would no longer be able to use the San Marcos experiment in Kilroy’s support. The additional traffic generated by the existing entitlement, 550,000 SF, would be 6,500 daily trips as compared to the 24,000 daily trips proposed by Kilroy’s 1.4 million SF project. The DEIR described the traffic impacts from Kilroy’s project as “significant” and “unmitigable.” The city’s traffic engineers attempted to support Kilroy’s proposed project by referring to speculative and unrealistic mitigations, which may never actually materialize, and, if they do, are likely to be ineffective to compensate for the enormous increase in traffic this proposed project would generate. These city traffic engineers failed the Carmel Valley community gravely in providing an independent and objective assessment of the traffic impacts of this proposed massive project. They get a Level of Service – F. Gabriele Prater Carmel Valley resident Past Vice Chair, CV Planning Board

Give One Paseo the green light Benjamin Franklin stated that there are two certainties in our world. With the development and modernization of the car industry there are now three assurances – death, taxes and traffic. With just another office building at the corner of Del Mar Heights and El Camino Real, there will be additional traffic in Carmel Valley but little in the way of mitigations. Period. We will continue to be a community of segregated land uses that make us dependent on the car. The best way to deal with future impacts is to approve the mixed-use design of One Paseo along with all the traffic mitigations and improvements that go with it. Will there be added traffic? Yes. But with an office building we get more traffic and none of the community benefits envisioned with One Paseo. In fact, with more places to go in Carmel Valley, we will spend less time in our car driving from place to place. Let’s give One Paseo the green light so we can finally have a true gathering place in Carmel Valley that reflects the residents’ desire for more opportunities to stay closer to home. Thank you for taking the time to hear from a citizen of Carmel Valley. Laurence Schreiber

One Paseo mitigation plans compensate for increase in traffic Open Letter to Councilwoman Lightner and Carmel Valley Community Planning Board (CVCPB), First, I would like to thank Councilwoman Sherri Lightner for providing the venue and attending last Thursday’s Carmel Valley Community Planning Board (CVCPUB) meeting — in its entirety — and listening to the community’s major concern with the One Paseo project — traffic. The city staff, especially the traffic engineers, did an outstanding job in responding to the 20-something questions provided by the CVCPB concerning the community’s major concerns with traffic and circulation around and through the project. Second, I would like to thank the CVCPB for its diligent efforts over the past year that have shaped this project to meet the greater San Diego land use needs and our desires to have a viable focal point for North City. I urge the board not to delay the permitting and approval process. As a homeowner just off High Bluff and most likely to be affected by the increased traffic at the Del Mar Heights and High Bluff intersection, I was most interested in the project’s mitigation and future planned road improvements and enhancements. I believe the One Paseo mitigation and future improvements as explained by the City traffic engineers during the lengthy meeting more than compensates for the increase in traffic. We have before us a rare opportunity to bring a well thought-out smart growth “fill-in” land use project that will serve as the gateway to Carmel Valley and the cornerstone of our Del Mar Heights community. The project is a clever blend of office, retail and residential space and yet is flexible enough to accommodate future growth changes. The Main Street theme will serve as a confluence for professionals, shoppers, residents and students, having the potential of becoming a destination point along the I-5 corridor. With the recent buildout of our middle school, community center and police station, and the existing library and fire station, all that is missing for a viable stand alone San Diego community in North City is a Main Street and this project fits that need to a T. Raymond Mello, PE Carmel Valley

One Paseo traffic issues: Too many unanswered questions The March 28 meeting of the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board featured traffic engineering staff experts responding to questions from the members of the Community Planning Board. The auditorium was full of concerned residents who fear that the impacts on the proposed project far outweigh any benefits to our community. Residents were wearing “Save Carmel Valley” stickers. Their concern is centered on the fact that the proposed mixed use project would exacerbate the already congested traffic flows, especially on the northbound entrance to I-5 freeway where metered Caltrans entrance ramps back up traffic on the Del Mar Heights Road westbound in the morning rush hours. Residents fear long delays at the additional two traffic lights and during both rush hour traffic peaks that will be created by the additional 23,000 auto traffic trips per day generated by this proposed project. The existing entitlement is for 550,000 square feet under the community plan. Kilroy wants to build 1.4 million square feet, or approximately three times what is presently allowed! Such a vast increase in use would require “mitigation” measures. These measures were enumerated by the traffic engineers. The factual basis for the efficacy of these measures is lacking. The engineers could only cite the experience of the City of San Marcos as a place where the satellite-controlled traffic signals had ever “solved” the problems of overlydense development. The engineers admitted, however, that neither of them had ever spoken to anyone in the Traffic Engineering Department at the City of San Marcos to determine whether the timed traffic signals solved the severe traffic congestion eastbound on San Marcos Boulevard at 5 p.m.. during peak rush hour traffic. To test the hypothesis, one need only make a telephone call to the San Marcos City Traffic Department itself, or better, get in your own car and drive eastbound toward the I-78 freeway onramp on San Marcos Boulevard at 5 p.m.

The “un-mitigatible” traffic jams themselves would stimulate the provision that the developer would have to contribute to a City fund their “fair-share” of the cost of widening roads, use of satellite-controlled traffic signals with computer timing, installing more left turn lanes, making right turn lanes longer, and even installing a “diamond lane” for commuters who wish to go north on the I-5 freeway from eastbound Del Mar Heights Road. That diamond lane would be in addition to the normal right turn lane. We all know how people are carpooling these days. Not! When asked how bicycles are supposed to navigate the mess, the engineers were stumped. Residents also learned that future contingencies, such as rebuilding the bridge at Del Mar Heights Road and the I-5 might never happen. The proposed widening of eastbound lanes on Via de la Valle from El Camino Real eastbound would allegedly take pressure off of traffic on Del Mar Heights Road, but, if the mitigation fund is not funded, then the only remedy would be to stop the proposed development at that “phase.” But that would only be if that provision was written into the plan. The Chairman of the Carmel Valley Planning Board, Frisco White, asked the ultimate question of the City traffic engineers, “Would the proposed project (at three-times the existing entitlement) be good for the community?” Again, the traffic engineers from the City could not answer that question. The existing level of service on our roads in rated at an LOS D or even at LOS F. The latter is deemed to be unacceptable traffic delays. Creating another 23,000 trips per day is like booking passage on the Titanic and hoping for more lifeboats after leaving the dock. The original Community Plan was based on competent traffic studies. No technology can change the traffic jams that are inevitable if Kilroy Realty builds three times its entitlement. That’s roughly two to three times the traffic by anyone’s math. William Bibb

OFFER continued from page 1 “It’s too bad they declined without consideration for the community’s needs,” Little said. Elizabeth Schreiber, vice president and general manager of Del Mar Highlands Town Center, said she was disappointed that Kilroy is attempting to shift focus from its own problems onto Del Mar Highlands. “Donahue Schriber is disappointed that Kilroy continues to employ tactics seeking to deflect their impacts onto others, rather than scaling back their project as per the community’s request and offering real solutions to the concerns of Carmel Valley residents and businesses,” Schreiber said. Little said the parking garage proposal was made as a result of a Carmel Valley Community Planning Board suggestion that the two property owners speak to each other about how to deal with the future retail entitlement at the Highlands. On March 13, John Kilroy sent a letter to Patrick Donahue, the chairman and chief executive officer for Donahue Schriber, making the initial offer. Kilroy stated that the Highlands’ increase in square footage has “created a parking deficiency that cannot be solved in its current configuration and is a significant concern to both your customers and tenants.” Kilroy proposed increasing the existing parking supply by 330 cars with a Kilroy-funded, two-level parking garage at the back of the Highlands Center. Donahue responded to Kilroy’s letter on March 21, “respectfully declining.” “We are exploring plans to build out much of our remaining entitlement, which would likely include the construction of our own parking garage if and when we were to proceed,” Donahue wrote. He said the Highlands’ recent remodel increased the parking at the center by nearly 200 stalls and they continue to study ways to improve and enhance the experience for Highlands’ customers. “Frankly, we don’t think the parking at Del Mar

April 4, 2013 Highlands has anything to do with your One Paseo project,” Donahue wrote, noting that they have met with Kilroy on a number of occasions to express their concerns about the project’s density and traffic issues. “You building a garage on our property at the cost of us retiring our entitlement does nothing to alleviate those concerns. Moreover, your project is opposed by thousands of Carmel Valley residents and we suggest you should be working with them to address and alleviate their concerns vs. worrying about our parking.” Little said the Highlands’ letter was an announcement of Del Mar Highlands’ intent to increase its center by 50 percent, 150,000 square feet, without any traffic improvements. “Obviously they want to continue their retail dominance of the community without speaking to anything that might be a big community benefit,” Little said. “This was not a small offer, this was a significant offer from our CEO to them and it was flat-out declined.” Schreiber said that it is untrue that the letter was an announcement of the center expansion. She said their ad-

ditional entitlements were approved more than 20 years ago and they will move forward with the plans at the appropriate time. “The letter to Kilroy Realty was not an announcement regarding the start of construction to complete the build out of our shopping center,” said Schreiber. “Additionally, to clarify the misleading statements made by Kilroy Realty, traffic improvements associated with the build out of the Del Mar Highlands Town Center have already been made.” Little said the rejection indicates Donahue Schriber’s intent to maintain “selfserving retail control of Carmel Valley” and that he doesn’t know anyone who wants that center to take advantage of its remaining entitlements to expand and “exacerbate” its existing parking problem. “Donahue Schriber welcomes other retailers to Carmel Valley as long as the projects proposed don’t destroy the character or nature of the community as One Paseo would,” Schreiber said in response. “As currently proposed, One Paseo is three times what is allowed under current planning and entitlements for that land.”

RELIGION & spirituality

TRUCK continued from page 1 times) mobile food truck permits in the city while analyzing the issue and drafting an ordinance, city staff came up with a set of rules that includes operating hours of 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and the prohibition of alcohol sales, in addition to a number of other parameters. Del Mar Planning and Community Development Director Kathy Garcia said the goal is to have regulations in place before summer, and the council can revisit the ordinance later if needed. The ordinance also addresses the control noise, smoke and odors. Dining events or gatherings are also limited to eight mobile food truck vendors at a time or one truck per 1,500 square feet, and there must be 7 feet of free and clear sidewalk if a vendor wants to operate streetside. If operating as a caterer, that’s the only case in which an operations permit isn’t required, but the truck must be on private property. Last October, six food trucks operating under the company, Curbside Bites, rolled into the parking lot at

1957 – 2013

1601 Coast Blvd. and began serving foods from crepes to Italian food to gourmet hot dogs on Wednesdays starting at 5:30 p.m. To address concerns and implement parameters, the city issued a moratorium on food truck permits and the trucks ceased operations until it could formulate an ordinance. Other terms of Del Mar’s mobile food truck ordinance: • Engine idling limited to no more than five minutes per hour • Waste and recycling bins required • Food packaging must be biodegradable • Events limited to central, north and beach commercial areas • No overnight food truck parking • Truck events in parking lots must occur during off hours of lots (no dual use) • Restrooms required for patrons and food truck operators • Must operate within 25 feet of an intersection controlled by a crosswalk, traffic light or stop sign • Vendors must report sales tax revenue

BAN continued from page 1 Not only did close to 20 residents provide comment at the public hearing, mainly in favor of the ban, but three members of the first Solana Beach City Council showed up — two being in favor and one, Celine Olson, being the lone soldier in opposition to the ban. A mother of five, Olson said she depends on — and has for many years depended on — re-using plastic bags within the home for clean-up tasks. “They are necessary for chores in the house,” Olson

said. “Shoppers will go elsewhere as long as there is an elsewhere to go.” Councilman Dave Zito said he appreciated the public discourse and hopes that Olsen doesn’t think she has made any enemies on the council. However, he said he supports the 10-cent fee for paper bags in the city. “I think one of the best ways to work with our fellow cities in encouraging them to adopt and follow us is to show the leadership we are showing,” said Zito. “I think this is great that we are sticking to our guns and continuing on the path we have taken.”

From the beach to baseball, TPHS grad catching success at USC BY ROB LEDONNE When you grow up steps away from the Pacific on Del Mar’s well known 15th Street, odds are you’d want to pursue surfing. However, for Garrett Stubbs, a 2011 graduate of Torrey Pines High School, he’s focused his athletic abilities on baseball — and in a big way. Stubbs is currently in the midst of his second season as part of USC’s Trojan baseball team, one of the most well known athletic organizations nationwide. “I always wanted to play for USC,” explained Stubbs from Berkeley, where Garrett Stubbs. he’s gearing up for an away game. Photo courtesy of “Baseball was something I knew I al- USC Sports ways wanted to pursue.” Like many kids, Stubbs was intro- Information. duced to the sport by first playing little league, which was followed by a few stints as part of traveling teams. “I was playing both baseball and soccer until I was 13, and then I decided to focus fully on baseball,” said Stubbs. It was around this time when he met Ed Herrmann, a San Diego native and former Major Leauge Baseball catcher. Herrmann, who played for a variety of teams such as the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox in the 1970s, was first introduced to Stubbs through his step-grandfather. Remembers Stubbs: “He asked Ed if he’d be willing to coach me when I was about 10 years old, and he’s been my coach ever since.” Herrmann’s coaching seems to have paid off as Stubbs was a two-time All-CIF Selection while playing at Torrey Pines, a high honor for a high school player. By the summer of Stubbs’ junior year, he was recruited by USC — a dream come true at the time. “High school was awesome for me, I loved it. Hoggie (Herrmann’s nickname) taught me everything I knew about catching up until that point. As long as I could remember, I always wanted to go to USC but never really knew how I was going to do it, or how hard it was going to be to get in,” says Stubbs. “They started to show interest in me during my

Time management is a must for any college student, especially for members of USC’s baseball team which has a brutal schedule. For example, the next three weeks of play finds the team in Los Angeles Oregon, Utah, Malibu, and back again. However, just like when Stubbs was at Torrey Pines, he’s thinking of his future yet again — but this time it’s about whether or not he’ll get a chance to play for the majors. “I know from getting recruited to go to USC that you never know when an opportunity is going to present itself. Now that I’m here, I’m going to do everything I can to get to the next level,” Stubbs notes, summing up: “Baseball is going to end at some point for me — whether it’s in two years or 20, I’ll have to wait and see.” For now Stubbs is focusing on his next game, and is hoping the rest falls into place.

TPHS alum Garrett Stubbs’ dream came true when USC came calling.Photo/Pierson Clair sophomore year, and by the time I was a junior they asked me to join the team. There was just no question about it and I accepted with open arms.” Stubbs also credits his coach during his time at Torrey Pines, Matt Chess, for his success: “Chess really helped me with my hitting, and became not only my coach but my friend.” Last spring, Stubbs made his college debut as he stepped out onto the grass at USC’s Dedeaux Field. “My very first game I got to start was opening day my freshman year, and it was pretty surreal.” Stubbs explained. “I never get nervous beforehand because it’s just a game, but that day was the first time I ever really, really felt nervous; it was more excitement than anything, because I couldn’t believe I had made it to that point.” The team’s season was off to a hot start, winning seven straight games before cooling off, and Stubbs sees his freshman year as a learning experience. Says Stubbs: “That first season was kind of a roller coaster ride, but I think everyone needs a season like that. Personally, I had to learn how to manage my time with baseball and school. It’s a juggling act.”

Mustangs U18’s down Fallbrook, look now towards Concord de la Salle BY TIM PICKWELL In between Good Friday and Easter Sunday a trinity of Cathedral Catholic boys led the way, and the result was heavenly for the Carmel Valley-based San Diego Mustangs U18 Rugby Club. The undefeated Mustangs were down early, 5-0, on Saturday, March 30, to the nationally-ranked Fallbrook Warriors, when Cathedral Catholic Senior Drew Gaffney went on a brutal run up the middle. Classmate Alec Barton took his pitch as Gaffney was tackled about 20 meters out. Barton sprinted ahead and almost made it to the try zone. But, as he was tackled, Barton flipped the ball to hustling fellow Don Joey Kuperman, who split the posts for the score. The Mustangs then went on a rampage, opening a 29-5 halftime lead, and finishing out the win, 44-10, even though they played the final minutes down two men thanks to a red and a yellow card. Players and coaches have high hopes for the Mustang squad which has been invited to play in the prestigious National Invitational Championship in Elkhart, Indiana in May. The Mustangs are currently ranked 23rd in the nation by Rugby Magazine. Saturday’s win over 24th ranked Fallbrook can only help the Club’s standing. The Mustangs combine the best of the Torrey Pines Varsity Rugby team, and the Cathedral Catholic Varsity squad, along with a handful of seasoned players from La Jolla, Westview and La Costa Canyon high schools. Torrey Pines and Cathedral finished 1-2 in the County during the recently concluded high school rugby season, so their combined talents are potent. Of the six tries against Fallbrook, half were scored by Torrey Pines students (Chase Pickwell, Billy Maggs, Jacob Neeley), and half by Cathedral boys (Kuperman, Mac Entwistle, Gaffney). “We didn’t really know how to measure ourselves, winning out first few games against the lower half of our league,” said Head Coach Matty Sandoval. “But this was a quality win over a quality opponent. Fallbrook isn’t nationally ranked for no reason. We set the bar high for the boys, and they exceeded it.” But, being invited to the NIC in Indiana is half the battle. Because teams have to plan and prepare for the travel, the selection committee has to make its best guess in Febru-

The Mustangs are in the arena, but they will have to show well the rest of the season to be slotted into the championship bracket in Elkhart. A significant opportunity to impress comes this Friday when De La Salle of Concord, Calif., visits for a match Friday, April 5, at 5 p.m. at UC San Diego’s Warren West Field. Concord de la Salle is arguably the most highly regarded high school football program in America. The Spartan football team once had a 12-year, 151 game winning streak, and ESPN and USA awarded them national championships seven times. In recent years, they have won the CIF Football “Open Division” State Championship twice, including finishing 14-0 and ranked No. 1 in the nation by MaxPreps in 2010. The Spartan Rugby program employs many of the same athletes as its football team, and has enjoyed some success, including an 8-2-1 record this season. One loss was a squeaker to Dixon, a top California program. The other loss? To Cathedral Catholic in a “friendly” back in February.

BY ASHLEY MACKIN La Jolla Surf Association is accepting applications for its annual Menehune Surf Contest on April 20 at La Jolla Shores. The deadline for registration is April 13. The youth surfing contest (menehune means little person) is broken down into age brackets. Of the approximately 150 competitors, boys longboard and shortboard compete in age groups 7-9, 10-12, 13-15 and 16-18, and girls longboard and shortboard in bracket ages 7-10, 11-14 and 15-18. One registrant is a 7-year-old who cannot walk, but will surf with the help of his brother. He has medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer, and will enter in the novice division. Contest Director Stephanie Hoffman said surfers will be evaluated by a panel of three judges on choice of waves, style and maneuvers. Keikis (kids ages 6 and younger) will not be judged, but will be allowed to participate for fun. “One of the most rewarding events to watch is the Super Menehunes, who are under 6-years-old. We have surfers as young as 2-years-old in this division. They all surf at one time and it is great fun to see all the little ones together,” Hoffman said, noting that one of the goals is to “Host a fun, community surf contest to allow kids to compete in a friendly environment.” The other is to “gather our surf community for an event that benefits others; we donate 100 percent of the contest proceeds to charities in the area.” The contest also serves as a fundraiser for local charities. This year, beneficiaries include Natural High, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve and WiLDCOAST. Registration discounts apply to members of a middle or high school surf team, or those who enter with a team of five or more, or for surfing students in area surf camps or schools.

Del Mar and New Zealand lifeguards share a productive friendship Azim Khamisa Photo/McKenzie Images

Azim Khamisa shares inspirational story BY JOE TASH Eighteen years ago, Azim Khamisa’s only son, Tariq, was shot to death by a 14-year-old gang member during an attempted robbery in a San Diego neighborhood. Tariq, 20, was a college journalism student moonlighting as a pizza deliveryman. His killer, Tony Hicks, was later tried as an adult and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. Khamisa, a La Jolla resident, reached out to the killer’s grandfather and legal guardian, Plez Felix, and asked him to help with a newly adopted cause — ending youth violence. The pair forged what has become a lifelong bond as they’ve taken their message of non-violence, compassion and forgiveness to tens of thousands of middle schoolers in San Diego and beyond. Khamisa, featured speaker at the March 28 meeting of the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club, held at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club, lives by the philosophy he espouses. Five years after his son’s death, Khamisa visited Tony Hicks in prison, where he forgave the youth for his crime. Since then, he has lobbied for Hicks’ early release from prison (Hicks, now 32, is eligible for release in 2027), has offered him a job when he gets out, and corresponds regularly with his son’s killer. Hicks has shown remorse for what he did, and has used his time in prison to earn his high school diploma and take college courses, and even write poetry, Khamisa said. Forgiveness, Khamisa said, is a “selfish act,” because without it, he would have remained a victim throughout his life and been unable to live a happy, productive life. “You cannot destroy darkness with darkness… you cannot destroy hate with hate, only love can do that. You can’t destroy violence with violence, you need non-violence,” he said. “Violence is always the wrong response, it always makes things worse, not better.” Nine months after his son’s death, Khamisa founded the Tariq Khamisa Foundation, a nonprofit group dedicated to ending youth violence. Targeting middle school youth, the program includes school assemblies and non-violence curriculum, in which former gang members are often featured to help dissuade children from joining gangs. The program also provides youth mentoring and organizes community service projects.

BY ROB LEDONNE In the midst of the Pacific Ocean, slightly south of the continent of Australia, lies New Zealand, a country known for its beaches and a lush green countryside famously showcased in the “Lord of the Rings” films. However, even though the country is thousands of miles and a 15-hour plane ride away from the North County, there’s a very strong local connection. The lifeguards of Del Mar have a unique bond with their contemporaries in New Zealand, and there’s a sort of exchange program between the two outfits of not just people, but ideas and equipment as well. “We operate informally through a close friendship,” explained Jon Edelbrock, the Community Service and Lifeguard Lieutenant for Del Mar. “New Zealand selects two people every year to come over here during our summer and do a monthlong tour of our beaches. They don’t directly work, but they do little bits of stuff [with us],” Edelbrock explained. “There’s an established brotherhood between the two countries... it’s a mutual respect type of situation.” Aside from an official exchange program which is run in part by the U.S. Lifesaving Association, Del Mar’s specific relationship with New Zealand runs much deeper. Veteran lifeguard and Del Mar resident Tyler Grant first visited New Zealand when he was 20 years old with a group of six other lifeguards. Grant, who’s been back to New Zealand at least seven times, calls that first trip “life-changing. It was amazing. It’s a different lifestyle

It was invaluable to learn their rescue techniques, and see how they (conduct everything) down there. It makes your waterman skills a lot better by going there as well.” Del Mar Lifeguards also travel to New Zealand to learn how to use inflatable rescue rafts, which are widely used in the country and have diminished popularity in the U.S. “Most agencies here have moved toward personal watercraft like jet skis,” explained Edelbrock. “We, for many reasons, have chosen to stay with inflatable rescue boats, and the only place to get good inflatable rescue boats is New Zealand; they still make them.” Training how to use the boats in New Zealand is ideal, says Edelbrock, since surf there is much choppier than

Here, if we try to do training at that level, we’d generate complaints and problems. Over there, you get to test the limits.” That all adds up to stronger, more capable and knowledgeable lifeguards, he said. However, all of this traveling comes at a cost. “The first time I went out there in 2000, plane tickets alone were around $1,000 round-trip. Since then, they’ve doubled,” explained Grant. A [small] portion of the travel expenses are covered by the Del Mar Lifeguard Association, but the lifeguards pay for the vast majority of the expenses themselves.

Upcoming FACE Foundation fundraiser targets pet ‘economic euthanasia’ BY KELLEY CARLSON Bags & Baubles is back. For the third consecutive year, the Foundation for Animal Care and Education — also known as FACE – will hold its increasingly popular silentauction fundraiser to assist family pets in need of critical or emergency care. The event is slated for April 28, from 1 to 5 p.m., at Casa de Cinira, the Rancho Santa Fe home of FACE President Cini Robb. Designer handbags and jewelry will be up for bid, as well as items from the new “Men’s Section,” including ties, belts and wallets. Bags on the block will be in varying styles, colors and sizes – including some that are leather-free — with price ranges that fit nearly everyone’s pocketbook. Some of the designers of these new and “gently loved” items include Banana Republic, Big Buddha, Christian Dior, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Gucci and Balenciaga. Bidding starts at 10 percent to 15 percent of retail value. Among the donated baubles guests can compete for are an 18K White Gold Diamond Handbag Pendant and Chain, a Tiffany Somerset ring, and Judith Ripka necklaces and rings. The auction items can be previewed on the Bags & Baubles Facebook page,, or bagsandbaubles. org, so people can decide what they want to bid on ahead of time. There are currently more than 300 handbags available, but the number may grow as FACE is accepting donations up through the event. As for the auction itself, it’s likely to be lively. “The ladies get very enthusiastic about it; they have fun with the bidding wars,” Executive Director Stacy Steel said. Along with the auction, there will be a raffle of high-end items such as a brandnew Louis Vuitton handbag, jewelry, and spa and skin care-type items. Tickets are three for $25 or 15 for $100, and guests will receive a complimentary ticket if they purchase them ahead of time. While browsing, bidding and socializing, people will be able to nosh on appetizers and sip on wines. And once again, Lulu the dachshund — a FACE success story who suffered from disc herniation — will make an appearance and have several clothing changes. “It will be a beautiful day,” Steel predicted. In 2012, about 300 people attended Bags & Baubles — which is FACE’s biggest annual fundraiser — and this year, a crowd of about 400 is expected, she said. Steel also noted that 100 percent of this year’s proceeds will go to FACE. The nonprofit, headquartered in Sorrento Valley, was established in 2006 by a group of veterinarians who were distraught over the rise of “economic euthanasia,” in which pets are left to suffer or are euthanized when their owners can’t

afford the cost of treatment. The organization provides part and full financial assistance. To request help, pet owners can call FACE at (858) 450-3223, and fill out a one-page application that can be obtained through the organization’s Web site, w w w. f a FACE will then obtain paperwork from the veterinarian and request proof of fin a n c i a l hardship from the owner. According to Steel, turnaround can be as Malakai in a double cast short as one COURTESY OF FACE FOUNDATION hour, and normally occurs within 24 hours, depending on the nature of the emergency. The organization works with 80 hospitals in the area, and veterinarians working with FACE will discount their fees by 25 percent. To date, about 675 animals have been assisted by FACE. One recent case involves Malakai, a 5-year-old German shepherd mix. He was standing on furniture in front of a second-story apartment window, slipped and fell through the screen to the ground, and fractured both of his front legs. Malakai’s left foreleg required two pins; his right foreleg needed a steel plate and 12 pins, and his bone was fused to his ankle. His owner, Lara — a former member of the U.S. Marine Corps and a full-time college student with limited income — had to carry her large pet up and down the stairs at her apartment complex while he recovered. With financial aid from FACE, Lara was able to afford the care for her dog, which the nonprofit’s staff affectionately nicknamed “the gentle giant.” Since it issued its first grant in August 2007, FACE has contributed about $1 million in assistance, and funding is primarily provided by individual pet owners, with additional contributions from hospital partnerships. Special fundraising events are held throughout the year, such as Bags & Baubles. Last year, Bags & Baubles raised $130,000, and the goal for the 2013 event is $150,000, Steel said. Sponsorships are still needed, and FACE Grantee Lulu Howland they are tax-de- SOUBLET PHOTOGRAPHY ductible. Admission to the event is free, but an RSVP is required.

center identified the need. “Oceanside police were finding a safe place for women, but there was quickly a realization that they needed a place for kids,” said Casa spokeswoman Donna Greenbush, adding that the facility has grown from serving 100 kids to serving some 400 kids and 500 adults today. “We’ve really come full circle.” Beginning as a safe place for women and children, Casa has, through fundraising, been able to add more programs that cover the entire process of addressing child abuse — from prevention to victim assistance to reintegration of foster children back into the home. In the past couple of years, Casa has also begun to offer programs for a small fee to those who have not been referred through the court system.

A New Play For Family Audiences!

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY CLAIRE HARLIN Casa de Amparo is once again holding its second largest fundraiser of the year, Meet the Chefs of Del Mar, on April 14. And this year, in particular, marks some particularly notable milestones for the child abuse outreach nonprofit. Having been providing services to families dealing with child abuse issues for more than three decades at the Mission San Luis Rey Parish in Oceanside, Casa de Amparo opened a second campus in San Marcos last year, culminating a 14-year vision. Also, since locals attended the last Meet the Chefs event, the nonprofit has added a new supervised visitation space, more than doubling the amount of visits between parents and children in foster care that Casa can facilitate each year. In addition, Casa has added a young parents’ network, funded by United Way, which provides support and services to young parents ages 14 to 24. These new beginnings for Casa add to the handful of other programs that prevent and address child abuse. “We’re like a little grassroots organization that has grown up a bit,” said Director of Development Kathy Karpe, who has been with the nonprofit for more than 10 years. “It’s pretty overwhelming to come to work every day and look at a building and think ‘Wow, look what a group of people can do when they believe in a cause.’” Casa de Amparo no longer has to rent space from the Mission, where the organization began housing kids in 1978 when several members of a women’s resource

“If anyone in the community is suffering abuse and needs counseling, they can come to us and the fees are nominal,” Karpe said. Casa’s expansion to its new building, built on more than 11 acres and meant to offer a “healing environment,” according to Greenbush, opens up a lot of doors for the organization in terms of space. And while there are a number of new initiatives on the wish list, such as building a new child development center, there is still much money to be raised. Greenbush said last year’s Meet the Chefs event, which allows guests to try the signature dishes of more than a dozen of Del Mar’s finest chefs, brought in more than $120,000 for Casa, and an even bigger crown is expected this year. “It continues to grow in success every year,” Greenbush said. This year, the event will take plan from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Hilton Del Mar, located at 15575 Jimmy Durante Blvd. The cost is $150 per person or $200 for a private reception from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. that will include a wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres. “The best part is having all the chefs there in the same place, and getting to meet and talk to them in a casual setting,” Greenbush said. “And even greater is hearing how passionate they are about helping the kids. It’s one fundraiser in which it’s not us talking about us. It’s them talking about us, and all those chefs just being there says a lot to the community.” Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling or emailing Trina Godwin at (760) 566-3560 or For more information, call

Cultures mix to serve up delicious fun at Indigo Grill BY KELLEY CARLSON ith the rare distinction of being a non-Italian restaurant in a district known for its pizzas and pastas, Indigo Grill (a member of the Cohn Restaurant Group), stands apart from its neighbors in Little Italy, San Diego. Its décor and menu range from one extreme — the warm and culturally diverse state of Oaxaca, Mexico – to the other — the icy wilderness of Alaska. But together, the elements create a casual fine dining setting that’s playful and welcoming, a reflection of partner/Executive Chef Deborah Scott’s personality. It’s immediately obvious to passers-by, who look up to see the Indigo Grill sign with letters that “dance” like flames. Inside, the restaurant is divided into regions. To the left is the “south,” where woven walls in golden hues feature tribal masks, copper lights dangle from chains, and cultural artifacts, such as skeletons, accent the room. Moving in the opposite direction, the space gently curves and the décor begins its transition. The bar combines rich browns with cool, slate gray. A giant, partially faux coniferous tree — typically found in the cooler northern climates — greets guests at the entrance. Chairs with native symbols representing various tribes surround a community table.

■ This week’s recipe: Indigo Grill’s Jalapeño Pappardelle It’s separated from the “north” dining area by a sheet of “ice” and a totem pole. A salmon run is painted above the nearby ceviche bar. Common throughout all areas is a wood floor with a rustic, earthy tone, along with the sounds of Peruvian, Hispanic and European melodies. It’s the ceviche bar where Scott recommends that guests, especially first-timers, sit. “There’s a lot of interaction and it’s fun to watch (the behind-the-scenes activity),” she said. “You get a good feeling of what’s going on, and you get to watch all the food go by.” Patrons also get the aromatic whiff of

Those who prefer to dine outside may sit on the fully heated and enclosed patio, which features adjustable screens and views of Little Italy’s tree-lined streets. Not only does the restaurant décor contain an artistic flair, but the dishes are also visual masterpieces. It’s common for a guest to stop a server and ask to take a photo of a brilliantly colorful creation or a chocolate garnish designed to look like a dragon or serpent. “We have an amazing staff, a lot of real artists,” Scott said. The most popular item is one of the starters,

the Pipian Crusted Brie, a soft cheese that is enveloped in a nutty, earthy-flavored crust. It’s served with sweet-yet-spicy jalapeño jelly, honey-roasted garlic, grilled nopalese, mole negro and scallion flatbread. A popular soup is the Roasted Butternut Squash, an autumnal-colored concoction that incorporates cilantro pesto, roasted corn, beet puree, pepitas and creme fraiche. Scott’s personal favorite entree is the Jalapeño Cilantro Pappardelle. Other chef recommendations include the PecanCrusted Rainbow Trout, Pork Porterhouse and Pipian-Rojo Chicken Breast.

TPHS freshman prepared ‘ladybugs’ for Del Mar Heights musical BY KAREN BILLING As Del Mar Heights teachers set out planning their annual second grade “Bugs” musical, they ran into a problem as they could not find a parent volunteer to help choreograph the show’s big ladybug number. Who could possibly help these young ladybugs earn their spots? That’s where Tasia Machernak, a 14-year-old Torrey Pines High School freshman, came in. A dancer with previous lady big experience and a big sister to a Heights first grader, Tasia volunteered her time to teach 15 second grade bugs to dance. It was teacher Paige Rollins’ idea to recruit Tasia as she had been her student in second grade and she knew she had the chops as she has been dancing with Royal Dance Academy since she was 3 years old. There was some concern about a teenager being able to handle a group of second graders, but Rollins soon realized Tasia had no problem wrangling the bugs. “It turned out to be a blessing. Not only has Tasia been organized, dedicated, focused and energetic, the second graders have honestly never looked better and have learned the dance faster than any group,” said Rollins. For the last month and a half, Tasia has been back at the Heights putting the number together. “I like how the girls pay attention and try to pick up the steps. They try really hard even though a lot of them don’t take dance very often or at all,” said Tasia at

last week’s final dress rehearsal leading up to the March 28 show. “I enjoyed that they put in the effort.” For a few practice sessions Tasia had help from her friend Mikayla Chang, a Canyon Crest Academy freshman who also takes dance at Royal Dance Academy and was also a ladybug in the past. The show is different from when Tasia and Mikayla performed it, mostly in the number of bugs involved. When they were ladybugs, there were just eight dancers and they performed a different style of routine — Tasia’s adorable piece has a lot of jazz influence and lets each of the ladybugs shine as they sign about the importance of “being a lady.” “They’ve come a long way and I’m surprised all of them remember the steps without me constantly having to remind them,” said Tasia, who has also been impressed with how the girls have been devoted to practicing on their own time at lunch and recesses. “I really like her because she’s nice,” said ladybug and first-time dancer Nikki Quinn, 8. “If you make a mistake she doesn’t really care. I like that I get to dance with all my friends.” Tasia owes her success with the dance to her experience at Royal Dance Academy, where she takes classes in ballet, jazz and lyrical styles. “Francine Garton taught me everything I know, she’s the reason I can help them and make up the choreography,” Tasia said.

PHOTO/KAREN BILLING Tasia dances most every week day, recently completing the Royal Dance Academy exam in the advanced one level. Tasia occasionally assists her younger sister Natalia’s class at Royal Dance Academy and also choreographed a routine for Natalia and her friends for the upcoming school talent show. Additionally, she plays on the varsity tennis team at Torrey Pines, writes for the school paper, The Falconer, takes Spanish, and speaks Russian and Chinese. Tasia became fluent in Mandarin after living in Beijing for a year and a half with her family. She takes courses for high school credit at HuaXia Chinese School in Miramar. “I’m proud of Tasia and all of the students in Del Mar like her,” said Rollins. “Tasia has also been a role model to our second graders that kids can make a difference and that it is expected that we all help out.”

Global charity efforts come full circle at Santa Fe Christian Students assemble 400 Easter baskets to deliver to youth in City Heights BY CLAIRE HARLIN Earlier this year, the third grade class at Santa Fe Christian Schools helped their upperclassmen by gathering shoes and other necessities for the high schoolers to take to a Russian orphanage in February — one of a dozen worldwide mission trips the Solana Beach private school conducts each year. And on March 28, those third graders got a chance to steer their own charity project by assembling 400 Easter baskets to deliver to kids in San Diego’s City Heights as part of a Bridge of Hope project. They utilized the help of four upperclassmen who had delivered the donations to the Russian orphanage, as well as seven visiting Russian students who had also assisted on the Russian orphanage project. The partnership between the lower and upper classes is part of a new effort implemented by the school this year to let the younger students learn the meaning of charity while also getting to be a part of the older students’ mission trips to places such as Thailand, India, France, Uganda

and Rwanda, just to name a few. Previously, the upperclassmen prepared on their own, however, lower school principal Hannah Park said the new model lets the younger kids “live vicariously through the upper school students, while also helping them in whatever way they need for their trip.” The Easter basket project isn’t a new endeavor for Santa Fe Christian, said parent volunteer Melissa Drake, who steers the effort in partnership with Bridge of Hope, a nonprofit that helps those in need by supplying necessities in times of transition. As a Bridge of Hope volunteer, Drake got the idea to employ the help of the school’s third-graders about four years ago, and the project has since grown to involve the entire lower class. “It went so well I asked the principal to open it up to the whole school,” said Drake. The baskets were filled with daily necessities, toys and candy brought to school in a collaborative effort by the students, and they were delivered on

March 30 to a park in City Heights by Bridge of Hope volunteers. Bridge of Hope has for years been helping people, from refugees to single moms to the elderly, fill their homes with furniture or closets with clothing — or assist in other specific needs. Park said the Easter project is only one of many charity efforts the school conducts every year, including a large Thanksgiving project in which the entire school community raises money for and packages more than 60,000 meals to be delivered during the holidays. Kayla Stults, a freshman who went with “Team Russia” on the mission trip in February, said she had wanted to go for years and was happy to “jump in with two feet” to learn the culture while helping kids in need. She said it was exciting to work again with the Russian students who also participated in the mission. The timing of their recent visit aligned perfectly with the charity efforts of the lower class. “I like that we are doing our part to make their

Easter as good as an experience as possible,” Stults said. Park said her own daughter, a sophomore at Santa Fe Christian, recently left for a mission trip to France, another of the school’s global partnerships. She stressed that the school strongly enforces the notion of “helping outside ourselves,” and the Easter basket collaboration was a perfect example of that. “For our students to go all the way to Russia to do service, and then for the students from Russia to visit us and get to do this for our neighbors in City Heights, it worked out perfectly to make it a mission trip for them as well,” said Parks. “And it’s important for students in affluent areas to understand that you don’t have to go outside the country to find others who need help.” For more information on Bridge of Hope, visit, and for local volunteer opportunities email Drake at melissadrake228@gmail. com.

Couple’s Pilates studio a perfect marriage of therapy and fitness • Pilates People serving community for more than 10 years BY CLAIRE HARLIN Dave and Doreen Hall say their clients are like family. And they have a really huge family. After 15 years, Dave Hall still sees his first-ever Pilates client. She’s now 76 years old and has endured hip, shoulder and knee replacements. Doreen Hall has even done physical therapy for a man, now in college, who used to accompany his dad at age 5 to Pilates People, which was located in Carmel Valley for 10 years before moving to 11300 Sorrento Valley Road, Suite 101. In all, there are about a dozen original clients who they still see regularly. Some clients come to Pilates People to recover and some to simply further their fitness routines. They see the young, middle-aged and elderly, and they say Pilates seems to keep their clients “youngâ€? too, such as with one woman in her 40s who plays competitive soccer with 20-something players. Many are neighbors in the Halls’ own community of Carmel Valley, and many come from La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, Solana Beach or further — as Pilates People is the only facility in San Diego County that incorporates Pilates and physical therapy into a single healing regimen. The couple opened their first studio in 2001, with Dave bringing his graduate work in exercise physiology to the table and Doreen having more than a decade of physical therapy practice under her belt. And since they expanded the business in 2006 to begin accepting all forms of insurance, the studio has been flooded with clients who are interested in combining their physical therapy with Pilates. “It’s unique in that the Pilates and physical therapy overlap,â€? said Dave. “People who come in for PT often transition into a fitness program, and because a lot of people come in for fitness, they don’t even know they are being rehabilitated too.â€? Dave said Pilates can be a form of rehabilitation in that it can pinpoint muscles in the body that are either weak or imbalanced, and it’s imbalances such as those that can, sometimes unknowingly, place strain on the body and cause

Doreen and Dave Hall injury. A back problem may be attributed to a weakness in one hip, for example. “A body needs to work like a symphony,� said Doreen. “As you listen to music all the instruments have to come in at the right moment, and the body is just like that; the elements may come in at different times, and coordination and neurological control of muscles is important.� Sometimes, Doreen said, even a past injury can seem healed, but because the person was compensating for weakness from the injury in the process, imbalances can occur and actually exacerbate the injury later on. “People say, ‘Wow, I blew out my back picking up the car keys,’ but it doesn’t work like that,� said Dave. “Usually they were exacerbating the injury the whole time due to compensating for weaknesses.� Dave said that had he himself not found work in physical therapy and Pilates, he may have ended up on the surgeon’s table as he has broken at least 10 bones in his lifetime from practicing action sports. Doreen has been practicing physical therapy since 1989.

When Pilates first hit the fitness scene as a new and unique concept, both Doreen and Dave fell in love with the practice and all it did for the body. “Back then, people couldn’t even pronounce the word, and it didn’t even come up in a Google search,� said Doreen. They embraced Pilates into their practice from the very beginning, learning all the ins and outs along the way. Following and utilizing the practice as it has evolved over the years, the Pilates gurus now have the knowledge necessary to tweak the practice according to each individual, whereas many Pilates studios employ the same workout for all. “Exercises can be broken down for any issue, and you can see how every little muscle works and any imbalances can be seen,� said Doreen. “The training we do has evolved over 30 years, and we modify and customize it. You won’t come here to simply find a traditional workout.� For more information, visit Note: Business Spotlights are developed through this newspaper’s advertising department in support of our advertisers.

Back in November 2012 during the holiday season, Maya Kabakibi, a 6th grader at Solana Pacific Elementary School who plays competitive soccer, came up with the idea to organize a campaign to collect and donate soccer gear to the underprivileged community. “I was thinking that there are so many kids that play soccer in Carmel Valley whose families’ garages are probably full of unused soccer cleats, shin guards and jerseys, just like ours. These could all be used by children who love to play soccer in another part of the world.� With the help of Dr. Art Mendoza and Ildiko Tesak from the Del Mar Rotary Club, Maya was able to secure a collaboration with Club Deportivo, the biggest soccer club in El Salvador, to help donate the gear to local school children in the city of Antiguo Cuscatlan. Maya emailed all her friends and family to get the word out, including contacting the local schools and clubs to see if they would be willing to participate. Shannon MacMillan, the director of operations at DMCV Sharks Soccer Club, was also kind enough to send out multiple emails to notify the community about this worthwhile project. In just four weeks — with the help of DMCV Sharks Club, Solana Pacific Elementary School, Solana Highlands Elementary School, Carmel Valley Middle School and the Pacific Athletic Club (now called Pacific Sports Resort), Maya was able to collect close to 100 pairs of cleats/shin guards and five boxes worth of balls and jerseys. “It was great to come to school every day and see people dropping off the soccer items. It made me realize what a great community we live in. With everyone’s help we can truly make not only our community but the world a better place,� Maya said. Maya’s next project? Participating with Girl Scout Troop 1360 to earn their silver award.

Erik Skoldberg Gallery opens at the Del Mar Plaza Erik Skoldberg, a contemporary artist and resident of San Diego, has opened his first gallery at the Del Mar Plaza. Erik Skoldberg Gallery showcases Skoldberg’s original fine art in a 2,000-square-foot space on the Plaza’s third level. Skoldberg is known for large-scale, abstract paintings that explore vivid color schemes. A native of La Jolla, Skoldberg grew up surfing and traveling, and cites nature and the ocean as primary influences in his work. Inspired by the vibrant hues found in earth’s elements, the artist’s ultimate goal is to present a new vision of possible color combinations. Using acrylic on canvas, the painter experiments with fluid brushstrokes, layering, and blended colors, resulting in pieces that portray passion, movement, and a sense of curiosity. In selecting a location for his first gallery, Skoldberg identified a niche in the Plaza’s art scene. Michael Seewald Galleries, located on the street level at the Plaza, was the only other fine art gallery, and Skoldberg’s contemporary paintings could provide the Plaza with a creative balance, offering a wider selection of artistic genres. He says, “I saw a need for a wonderful contemporary gallery in Del Mar. My mission is to bring contemporary art to this community, and to create a place of gathering where visitors can experience my art and where they can express themselves.” In the spirit of contributing to the community, Erik Skoldberg Gallery will host art classes for both children and adults on a weekly basis, to be taught by local artist and art teacher Gloria Skoldberg. Erik Skoldberg Gallery is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. The gallery is located at 1555 Camino Del Mar, Suite 117, on the Del Mar Plaza’s top level.

Friends of Jung lecture, workshop to be held April 12, 13 A Friends of Jung lecture, “Antarctica: Inner Journeys in the Outer World” will be presented by Robert Romanyshyn on Friday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 334, 14th St., Del Mar. After a trip to the Antarctic, Robert Romanyshyn created landscape pictures set to music and a voice narration telling the story of a journey that began with a dream and a series of synchronicities. He uses Jung’s description of the psychoid archetype as a level of the unconscious where psyche and nature are one, to help us recognize that the melting polar ice is as much a psychological issue as an issue of nature. This becomes both a symbol of ecological crisis and a symptom that calls us to remember and heal our broken connections with nature. Romanyshyn is a Senior Core Faculty member in the clinical psychology program at Pacifica Graduate Institute. He has lectured all over the world, is a master story teller and has published six books, numer-

ous articles and is currently finishing two new books. Admission fees are $10 for Mueller students with a badge, $15 for FOJ members, $17 for full-time students and seniors (65+), and $20 for non-members. Romanyshyn’s lecture will be followed by a workshop on Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. titled “Left by the Side of the Road: Individuation and Homecoming.” Using dream material, symptoms, fantasies, and writing exercises to tap into the creative unconscious participants will engage in a journey of coming home to oneself and to the world. The workshop will be held at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 334 14th St., Del Mar, 92014. Cost is $50 for members, $60 for nonmembers. For more information on the lecture and workshop, visit

Solana Highlands Daisy Troop 3042 helps others through donations Solana Highlands Daisy Troop 3042 worked on a Daisy Journey this year that had a focus on animals and animal care. The Troop members raised $600 this year selling Girl Scout cookies. Troop 3042 members have donated $200 to the Helen Woodward Animal Shelter and $200 to the San Diego Zoo ($100 to adopt a giraffe and $100 to adopt a panda). Additionally, they have donated $200 to The Avielle Foundation (Avielle Rose Richman was one of 26 children and educators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, 2012. According to its web site, “the Avielle Foundation has been created to bring about change in the hope of honoring Avielle and all the others that have fallen to such senseless violence. The goal of the Foundation is to prevent violence through brain health research and fostering community. The Avielle Foundation will work directly with world leaders in these fields toward understanding and change.” Visit Avielle Richman was a Daisy Scout, just like the Solana Highlands Troop members.

Local Biotech — Ultimate Labs — donates Mad Science Birthday Bash for children in need A special celebration took place at a foster home in East County recently with a Mad Science Birthday Bash for over a dozen youngsters. The staff of local Ultimate Labs joined forces with the organization “They Say It’s Your Birthday” to provide exciting experiments and a science-themed birthday cake for the young children ages 5 to 12. Several children at the long-term care facility have never celebrated a birthday while being housed there. Some come from broken homes while others never met their deceased parents. The center also takes in children who are at risk and provides a safe haven. The monthly event has been held for over two years now. Kim Scullion of “They Say It’s Your Birthday” says this event is an investment in today’s youth and is thankful to the volunteers who throw an “Oprah-style” birthday for the kids! She adds it is truly a joyful event for the children. Volunteers from Ultimate Labs, a local microbiology testing lab owned by Carmel Valley resident Kim Lim, helped set up various science experiments, such as

(Above) Ultimate Labs Mad Science Volunteers; (Right) The molecule cake for the Mad Science birthday alka seltzer pop rockets, and showed children how to make fake snow. Lim believes in giving back to the community and encourages team endeavors such as this one. She says her company has a core value of “Helping You Save Lives” and believes such events promote the joy of discovery and further promote the value of science education. She adds, “Employees have designed their own community outreach programs in which the company sponsors several

monthly volunteer opportunities within the San Diego community.” Ultimate Labs will be participating in a beach cleanup effort in April at Sunset Cliffs and a Habitat for Humanity San Diego event in June.

New Shoe Event to put 1,000 new shoes on San Diego school kids in need Gaylord-Hansen Shoes, a nonprofit 501c3 organization, recently secured the 20,000-square-foot Activity Center at the Del Mar Fairgrounds to hold its annual New Shoe Event for San Diego school kids in need. The event will be held on Oct. 7. Believe it or not, there are almost 16,000 kids in the San Diego area that are homeless or in transition. The mission of the Gaylord-Hansen Shoe Foundation is to give San Diego school kids in need an opportunity to enjoy the fun and excitement of getting a brand new pair of shoes and feeling the exhilaration of running faster, jumping higher, looking cool, or feeling fancy. Additionally, the foundation holds used shoe drives throughout the year to provide used shoes to help

school kids as they grow and wear out their shoes. “I remember as a kid growing up I always loved getting a new pair of sneakers! I always felt faster and thought I could jump higher,” states Bill Gaylord. “Unfortunately, there are so many kids in San Diego that have never had a new pair of shoes. What most of us take for granted, so many kids out there just want some shoes that fit, new or used.” According to Sam Hansen, “We want to put 1 million new and used shoes on kids over the next five years. This year, we will put 1,000 new shoes on kids and working to collect 25,000 used shoes through used shoe drives throughout San Diego County.” The North County Association of Realtors (NSDCAR) has


adopted Gaylord-Hansen Shoes as its Community Project for 2013, providing numerous volunteers at the New Shoe Event and holding used shoe drives.

CCA’S ‘Eurydice’ a hit, sells out first week; Adds special 1 p.m. Friday, April 5, show Canyon Crest Academy’s “Eurydice” is a big hit, selling out all of its first week performances. The energy, creativity and message of the production are delighting audiences of all ages. After Friday’s opening one audience member exclaimed, “What talent! I am overwhelmed by the production quality of every aspect of the show…the music being originally written by a student, the acting, the casting was perfect and to top it off, they made it rain on the stage! Wow! Hard to believe this is high school theater!” “There has been such an overwhelming response to the first week that we have actually added a special show on Friday, April 5,at 1 p.m.,” says the show’s director, Tarla Hill. “We had to turn people away on Saturday night, even after adding additional seating,” Hill explained, “It’s risky to add a performance in mid-run without much advance notice, but we don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to see the show.” The added show was specifically created for student audiences, especially 6th graders, but all, students and adults are invited to attend. In addition to the performance, there will be a cast talk-back immediately following the special student show.

United Way’s Virtual Book Drive gives San Diego Children Summer Reading Books Fourth grade is a critical year. It is when children switch from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” At least that should be the case. With over a quarter of the county’s fourth graders not reading proficiently and over half of San Diego’s students considered “economically disadvantaged,” United Way of San Diego County will host its second annual Virtual Book Drive for local children up to age eight, to foster a love of reading and learning for long-term success. United Way’s Virtual Book Drive has been extended through April 5, with the goal of purchasing 48,000 summer reading books. The bilingual books cost only $2.50 each on average, and individuals and companies are encouraged to make any size donation at the online “bookstore” at or by texting “BOOKS” to 41444. Proceeds from the book drive will buy five different books: “Are You My Mother?”/ “Eres Tú Mi Mama?”; “Gossie”/ “Gansi”; and “A Birthday Box”/ “Mi Caja de Cumpleaños” for children up to age three and “Big, Big Wall”/ “No Puedo Bajar” and “Daniel’s Mystery Egg”/ “El Misterioso Huevo de Daniel” for children ages four to eight. Each child will receive their own book, a bookmark with an inspirational note and bilingual tips parents can use to encourage the love of reading. The books will be distributed throughout the county. A donation of $20 will buy books for eight young San Diego readers. Donations of $50, $100 or even $1,000 will make an even bigger impact and create more happy readers. The drive will culminate with United Way’s annual Day of Action, sponsored by Geico, on Friday, June 21, where volunteers will help package the books and write notes to kids.

Local residents to perform in San Diego Musical Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Sound of Musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; San Diego Musical Theatre recently announced its second production of the 2013 season, Rodgers and Hammersteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sound of Music,â&#x20AC;? running May 10-26 at the Birch North Park Theatre. Carmel Valley performers in the production include: Katelyn Katz (Brigitta von Trapp); Jonas McMullen (Friedrich von Trapp); Debra Wanger (Sister Margaretta). The final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beloved musical. When a postulant proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immediate service in their navy. The familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narrow es-cape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time. For individual or group tickets contact the Administrative Office at 858-560-5740 or visit SDMT online at www. Birch North Park Theatre is located at 2891 University Avenue, San Diego, 92104.

International speaker to present talk on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;God and Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Is prayer really a reliable form of health care? Can God be relied on for health and healing? International speaker Rob Gilbert says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my own experience Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found that prayer and a deep understanding of God is a reliable way to maintain health and experience healing.â&#x20AC;? Gilbert will present a talk titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;God and Healthâ&#x20AC;? on Sunday, April 7, at 2 p.m. at University City High School, Mini Theater, 6949 Genesse Avenue, San Diego, 92122 â&#x20AC;&#x153;This lecture corrects mis-

conceptions often held about God and shows the nature of God, divine Love, to be a consistent healing Principle,â&#x20AC;? says Gilbert. Gilbertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas are based on the teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and as discussed in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Gilbert is a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.For more information on the event, email Marcie Germani at marcie@fliptime. com.

CITY OF DEL MAR NOTICE OF PLANNING COMMISSION AND CITY COUNCIL PUBLIC HEARINGS ON APPLICATION GPA-12-02, AN AMENDMENT TO THE CITY OF DEL MAR COMMUNITY PLAN TO ADOPT THE 2013-2021 CYCLE HOUSING ELEMENT NOTICE is hereby given that THE CITY OF DEL MAR PLANNING COMMISSION AND THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF DEL MAR will hold (separate) public hearings at the dates, times and locations listed below to review and consider adoption of the following application: GPA-12-02 Project Description: An Amendment to the Del Mar Community [General] Plan to adopt the 2013-2021 Cycle Housing Element. The Planning Commission meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. in the Del Mar Communications Center, 240 10th Street, Del Mar, CA 92014. The City Council meeting will be held on Monday, May 20, 2013 at 6:00 p.m., in the Del Mar Communication Center, 240 10th Street, Del Mar, CA 92014. Background: The 2013-2021 Cycle Housing Element of the Del Mar Community Plan contains analyses, strategies, policies and programs for addressing the following goals: ensuring the provision of sufďŹ cient housing for all income groups, preserving affordable housing stock, minimizing governmental constraints to providing housing, providing affordable housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income residents, and complying with all applicable laws and regulations relating to housing. By State law, a cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Housing Element must be periodically updated in order to assess the changing housing needs of the region and the community, and to establish an action plan to address these needs. The updated Housing Element is also subject to review by the California Department of Housing and Community Development for compliance with State housing law. The Housing Element is a planning document. Its adoption would not authorize any change in land use or development permit(s). Subsequent proposals for amendments to City land use documents or for development projects would be subject to separate review, including environmental review as appropriate. The Planning Commission will review the draft 2013-2021 Cycle Housing Element and make a recommendation to the City Council on whether to approve the document as an amendment to the Del Mar Community Plan. Following the recommendation from the Planning Commission, the City Council will be asked to approve the 2013-2021 Cycle Housing Element as an amendment to the Del Mar Community Plan and to submit the approved document to the California Department of Housing and Community Development for certiďŹ cation. A notice was previously distributed and published announcing the release of the draft 2013-2021 Housing Element Update for a 60-day public review period. A copy of the draft 2013-2021 Cycle Housing Element Update is available for review at the Del Mar Public Library at 1309 Camino del Mar, Del Mar California; at City Hall ofďŹ ces at 1050 Camino del Mar, and on the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s web page at: Additional information about State requirements for Housing Elements is available on-line at the California State Housing and Community Development website at: Environmental Determination: A Negative Declaration has been prepared for this planning document and will be considered for certiďŹ cation at the time of the City Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s May 20, 2013 review of the 2013-2021 Cycle Housing Element. Coastal Jurisdiction: Public Resources Code Section 30500.1 of the California Coastal Act provides that: no local coastal program shall be required to include housing policies and programs. This public notice is ďŹ led consistent with and subject to the California Government Code, Section 65009(b)(2) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Exhaustion Doctrine. Any subsequent court challenge to the above item may be limited to those issues raised at the public hearing, or issues raised in written correspondence delivered to the City at, or prior, to the public hearing.

Pando Health Groups celebrate Grand Opening


he newest tenant on South Cedros is a medical, health and wellness center — with a

twist. Pando Health Groups celebrated its Grand Opening on March 14. Pando pitches itself as a “new paradigm” in medicine. It promotes health and well-being through a combination of discussion groups and centuries-old movement exercises, such as tai chi and chi kung. While this combination of non-traditional medical approaches in itself is somewhat unconventional, what truly makes Pando unique is that it was founded by a licensed medical physician. Dr. Mark Kalina, an internist practicing in San Diego for over 20 years, including 16 years at Scripps Clinic, is Pando’s founder and Medical Director. To a crowd of over 100 attendees at the Grand Opening, Kalina announced, “Welcome to Pando. We are going to revolutionize the way health care and wellness are provided in this country!” Pando Health Groups is located at 427 South Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach. It is currently conducting a special introductory offer as part of its ongoing Grand Opening celebration. For more information, call (858) 876-6360 or visit PHOTOS/JON CLARK

In gallops the King of Condiments — hurray for horseradish! The Kitchen Shrink

welled up with tears and stung like crazy even several minutes after she finished her prep work. Decades later, horseradish has become the King of Condiments, enlivening holiday tables and everyday meals. Here’s a primer to guide you through the shoals of the horseradish world. Root of the Root This ancient root is a member of the mustard family (and first cousin to wasabi). It has been used for culinary, medicinal and ritual purposes since Biblical times (the original bitter herb used on the Passover Seder table to remind Jews of their enslavement under Pharaoh). No country holds a solid claim to the origins of horseradish, although it is possibly from Asia, Germany or Mediterranean parts. Ancient Greeks and Egyptians prized sexy and soothing horseradish as a balm for backaches, a syrup to quiet coughs and an aphrodisiac to jump-start the romantic wiring. Horseradish spread to the Scandinavian countries and England via Central Europe during the Renaissance. By the late 1600s, the Brits embraced horseradish, which became a staple condiment for beef and oysters. The snappy root was soon grown at inns and coach sta-

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN As a little girl, I hovered around the kitchen after school, especially when my beloved grandma, a governess and trained chef, came over to give my mom cooking lessons. Grandma Eva was one of those old school European cooks, who made everything painstakingly from scratch. One afternoon she warned me to steer clear and go outside and play, as this particular lesson was going to be a teary-eyed one. More curious than ever, I stood my ground and sat safely in a corner out of harm’s way as grandma started shredding this knarly, knobby tubular root until her knuckles practically bled. And true to her warning, her eyes

The word “horse” is believed to denote large size and coarseness; “radish” comes from the Latin radix, meaning root. Another theory: The Germans called it “meerrettich.” The German word “meer,” sounds like “mare” in English. Perhaps “mareradish” eventually became “horseradish.” tions, blended in cordials and served to energize weary travelers.

Tubular Tips • Before grating this pungent root, wash, trim and scrape thoroughly, and toss the core. Store for up to four weeks in the refrigerator. • Horseradish is benign until crushed or grated, whereupon it releases its mighty oils. So prep or process with care — best in a blender or food processor. • Since vinegar is a stabilizing agent, add it immediately to the grated root to calm the fires and produce a milder condiment. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. • Preserve shredded horseradish in vinegar before using, even in cooking. • When heated, horseradish loses its zip, so to maintain

In upscale eateries, it’s an accompaniment to wild caught fish, prime rib, duck and seafood. The French call it raifort or moutarde des Allemands; its rafano in Italy, rabano picante in Spain and meerrettich in Germany. You can whip up a creamy sauce with mayo, sour cream or mustard to dial up turkey burg-

ers, bratwursts, roast veggie or chicken sandwiches, or you can spread horseradish on wild caught salmon before grilling. Add chopped roasted beets and red onions to horseradish for a savory relish. Spike up your mashed potatoes, soups, meatballs, green bean-, egg- or chicken-salads by blending in some shredded flakes. Blend horseradish with butter and garlic for a zippy bruschetta.

and minerals, including immune boosting Vitamin C (more than an orange or lemon), stress relieving B’s, magnesium, potassium, iron to pump up red blood cell production, zinc, selenium and folate. Horseradish contains stimulants that dial up enzymes to aid digestion, anti-inflammatories that ease creaky joints and stiff muscles, and assorted antioxidant and detoxing isothiocyanates — the volatile oils that give horseradish its famous fire in the belly. It is even rubbed on the forehead to calm a throbbing headache.

LIFEGUARDS continued from page B1 tionships with the exchange guards.” Matt Becker, another Del Mar veteran, is currently in Australia after a stint in New Zealand and is chasing an endless summer, a common quest among lifeguards and surfers alike to experience ideal beach conditions year-round. Everything switches this July and August when it’s winter on the other side of the world, and Del Mar welcomes a new crop of New Zealanders.

“Since they’re so far away, they appreciate anyone who goes out there. When you’re in their little clique, they let you into their homes and are very welcoming,” notes Grant. “When it’s summer here, we exchange the favor and reciprocate.” Overall, the bond between Del Mar and New Zealand is a special one. Sums up Grant: “Everything about it is great.” For more information Del Mar Lifeguards, visit http://www.delmarlifeguard. com/


STORY continued from page B1 Khamisa said the program has shown results in the schools where it has been implemented, from reducing the presences of gangs to lower suspension and expulsion rates and higher academic achievement. With more resources, he said, the program could be replicated in schools across the country, he said. Children see the pain of violence and loss etched on the faces of Khamisa and Felix, which they don’t get from violent video games or movies, Khamisa said. “This is real. It puts a face on violence,” he said. The foundation has also created videos which can be shown to schoolchildren when the two men are not available for a personal appearance. In an interview before his talk, Khamisa addressed the debate over gun violence — and how to reduce it — that has emerged in the wake of December’s deadly school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Khamisa stressed that he was speaking as a U.S. citizen and victim of violence, not as a representative of the foundation, which does

While he supports the right of people to hunt, he said, he would prefer that the rifles be kept at hunting clubs, which is the practice in Europe. He also advocated for extensive background checks and registration of all handguns, the way cars are registered at the DMV. Handguns, he said, “should be under lock and key, not loaded handguns on nightstands and coffee tables,” he said. Khamisa’s talk was part of the regular monthly program of the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club, which was formed in 2007 in the runup to President Barack Obama’s first campaign. At the time, residents of the conservative enclave of Rancho Santa Fe were reluctant to admit they were Democrats, said club president Michael Gelfand. Since then, the club has become much more active, supporting candidates at the national, state and local levels, such as newly elected county supervisor Dave Roberts, the first Democrat to sit

on the board in nearly 20 years. Local Democrats are now willing to put bumper stickers on their cars and plant yard signs for their candidates, Gelfand said. “They’ve come out of the closet,” he joked. “They’re admitting they’re Democrats and proud of it.” Khamisa has received over 65 humanitarian awards from people and organizations as diverse as the Dalai Llama, the White House, the Children’s Defense Fund, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Child Safety Network. Khamisa was recently appointed as President of the Child Safety Network in CSN’s continuing mission to make America a safer place for children. He is also the founder and National Director of the Constant and Never Ending Improvement program. In June 2004, Khamisa participated in the Synthesis Dialogues, with His Holiness the Dalai Llama, held at the Pope’s summer residence in Castelgandolfo, Italy. Azim’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Washington Post, People Magazine, U.S.A. Today, Oprah Magazine, NBC’s Today Show, Nightly News, CBS’s Early Morning Show and KPBS’s Fresh Air.
