Retail now planned for medical office space at Pacific Highlands Ranch BY KAREN BILLING More retail is planned for Pacific Highlands Ranch as reworked plans for the Corallina development on Carmel Valley Road were discussed at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting on May 22. A year ago, the plan was for 109 luxury condos and 21 affordable housing units above 30,000 square feet of medical office space next to the Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch. Developer John Finley, of Eq-

uity Properties Group, said they now plan to convert those medical offices to retail space. “We were concerned about the depth of the market and we weren’t sure the market could bear another 30,000 of retail,” Finley explained. “Based on the demand Coast Income Properties is getting for retail (with the Village at PHR) and the interest we are already starting to get, we feel See RETAIL, page 12

BY KRISTINA HOUCK A little more than a week after the Solana Beach City Council unanimously approved $80,000 for the construction of the Veterans Honor Courtyard at La Colonia Park, San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts pledged another $80,000 toward the project. City officials and community members erupted with applause and cheers after Roberts made the announcement during the city’s Memorial Day ceremony May 26 at La Colonia Community Center (see event photos on page B4). “Three hundred and sixty-five days a year, once this project is done, people will be able to come to this courtyard to honor our veterans … and really reflect on the true cost of what these conflicts have on our nation but, more importantly, what they have on the local communities of Solana Beach,” said Roberts, who served as guest speaker at the ceremony. “We stand here united to show you that we understand how to work together

for the values we all hold dear, and our top value is honoring those who have served so that we can stand here to really make this the wonderful community that we all love.” The planned courtyard will feature a stone veneer wall with military seals behind a reflecting pool. It will honor all U.S. veterans, living and deceased, as well as those who are currently serving at home and abroad. The project is estimated to cost about $200,000. With Roberts’ selection of the courtyard as his “2014 signature project” and the council’s designation of funds during the May 14 council meeting, those spearheading the project have almost reached their goal. As of May 26, another $21,000 in private donations has been raised, said former Mayor Tere Renteria, who is leading the volunteer-led Veterans Memorial Committee, which is heading the project.

San Diego County Fair returns to Del Mar on June 7 with a Beatles theme BY KRISTINA HOUCK Food, fun and all things “fab” returns to Del Mar when the San Diego County Fair opens on June 7. This year’s theme is “The Fab Fair,” celebrating the British Invasion that “changed the music scene in America and the world,” said Tim Fennell, CEO and general manager of the Del Mar Fairgrounds, during the May 21 press conference and event sneak peek. The month-long fair will feature British music, pop cul-

ture and several exhibitions, including two Beatles photo exhibits. “The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes” is a collection of 80 never-beforepublished photos of the band’s first U.S. performance on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in February 1964 and the 20-city tour that followed, which included San Diego in 1965. “Give Peace a Chance” commemorates John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “bedin” for peace in 1969. Both exhibits will make their Califor-

nia debut during the fair. The fair will also feature eight stages of entertainment, including 24 days of Beatles’ music. “Every year we pride ourselves on bringing to the fair See FAIR, page 12

Del Mar to hold a Community Workshop June 9 on new City Hall/Town Hall project

Torrey Pines High alumnus Joseph Patterson graduates from Yale School of Medicine

The City of Del Mar recently announced an upcoming Community Workshop about building a new City Hall/Town Hall. On Monday, June 9, the City will be holding a Community Workshop to discuss the City Hall/Town Hall project and the City Council is encouraging all interested individuals to attend. This workshop is the second in a series of Community Workshops about the City’s future civic center. The City Council has also held community forums at each City Council meeting since April to solicit community thoughts on this topic. At the upcoming workshop, information will be available regarding financing of the project, the programs being evaluated, and the opportunities for other uses of the site. More details are available at The existing City Hall is operating in the former St. James Academy/Del Mar Elementary School at 1050 Camino del Mar. Originally built in 1921 and expanded in the 1950s, 45 percent of the original building is unusable because of seismic instability. Additional mobile trailers provide staff offices and meeting space. Current seismic and accessibility requirements, as well as maintenance and space needs, indicate the facility is beyond its usable lifespan as a City Hall. “We know there are lots of good ideas in the community about what residents want to see in a future Civic Center, so we encourage everyone to attend,” said Mayor Lee Haydu. Following the Community Workshop, it is intended that the City Council will provide direction on how to solve the problem of inadequate City Hall facilities. Following this direction, the public and the City Council will work together to craft the details of what and how such a project will be implemented. The Workshop will take place at the Del Mar Communications Center, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with a pre-workshop social, including refreshments,and the formal workshop at 6 p.m.

Dr. Joseph Thomas Patterson graduated from Yale School of Medicine on May 19. Patterson is a 2006 alum of Torrey Pines High School, where he was on the varsity track team. He received his undergraduate degree from UCLA in 2010, graduating summa cum laude with a B.S. in bioengineering.

McAlister Institute board member says Walk for Sobriety benefit raises invaluable funds to help Americans battling addiction BY KAREN BILLING One in six Americans will struggle with addiction but only one in 10 will receive the help they need to move their lives forward on a healthy path. The third annual Walk for Sobriety 5K Walk and Run on Saturday, June 21, is held to raise awareness for those 40.3 million Americans battling addiction, get more people moving in the right direction and celebrate those who have fought hard to remain clean and sober. The walk, which begins at 8 a.m. at NTC Park at Liberty Station, benefits the McAlister Institute in El Cajon, a facility that provides high-quality, low-cost substance abuse treatment, drug intervention and recovery support systems for 2,500 teens and adults every month through its 27 programs. Carmel Valley’s Dennis Ellman, a new board member at the McAlister Institute, knows personally how difficult and painful addiction can be, through his experience with his son’s addiction as a young adult. “He’s one of the hopeful ones,” Ellman said of his son, now 32, healthy and heading to graduate school. “But we lost a lot of people which is always the hard part. When his son was 18, four of his best friends died as a result of being deeply submerged in the drug culture. Ellman calls addiction an “elaborate cult,” where users find ways to get what they need and persist in addiction — they have to decide for themselves to get out and get better. “Drug addiction is an epidemic among young adults,” Ellman said, “It’s a real tragedy for families to try to find ways to cope and deal with a world they never thought they’d be introduced to.” At McAlister, there are a variety of services for everyone from pregnant women and troubled teens to ex-offenders and homeless men, from 30- to 90-day residential programs, recovery centers, safe housing and intervention services. They have a perinatal detox program, which is a short-term, non-medical residential program to help pregnant women detox from alcohol and other drugs in a safe and supportive environment. Many women go on to receive further treatment at Kiva Learning Center for Women and Children, a long-term residential treatment program for women with and without children. Over the course of six months, clients receive housing, treatment planning, daycare and parenting classes, educational workshops, mental health counseling, domestic violence assistance, vocational training and recovery support services. Many of the staff members at McAlister have suffered the challenges of addiction and collectively they have 1,000 years of sobriety — director Jeanne McAlister is celebrating 56 years of sobriety this year. Ellman, a 15-year Carmel Valley resident who founded the public relations firm Beck Ellman Heald in 1986, was introduced to McAlister five years ago as he was helping write a speech for one of the institute’s board members. “I just fell for her and the program and thought it was just terrific and what they do for the community was outstanding so I just become more and more involved,” Ellman said.

Carmel Valley resident Dennis Ellman at last year’s Walk for Sobriety benefiting the McAlister Institute. This year’s 5K

He continued to volunteer and his agency was hired to do the McAlister Institute’s public relations but separate from that, Ellman got involved at the board level just a few months ago. Ellman said one of the key issues the board is looking into is a new building for McAlister in the South Bay area. McAlister currently leases its space and, as its programs continue to grow, the new facility would provide a permanent home to serve even more people in need. “What I find really powerful with them is that they will see people regardless of their ability to pay, which is not common with drug and alcohol rehab centers,” Ellman said. “The dedication level is truly astonishing.” The Walk for Sobriety started three years ago as a result of a conversation the board was having regarding the fact that nobody really wanted to hear about addiction or rehab programs. Then an advisor to the board, Ellman asserted that was not true. “We need to change our thinking and realize

what we have going here is just as important as any type of disease or social issue out there. This is a problem that affects so many people and to feel like we can’t talk about it is a mistake,” Ellman said. He said drugs are often a news headline — celebrity overdoses, the heroin epidemic, the pot controversy — and the conversation is mostly focused on disease and addictive behavior. “On the other hand, people do recover and stay in recovery and there’s a great deal of hope that doesn’t get talked about,” Ellman said. He said rarely do people talk about what a rehab program is, what it looks like and how it works and what sobriety looks like. They decided a community event that celebrates hope and recovery could be something empowering, touch a lot of lives of people who have been impacted by addiction and help further the cause of McAlister. At the walk, many people wear a tally to show the See BENEFIT, page 8

Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito unveils new look, name at Carmel Valley branch BY KRISTINA HOUCK The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito recently unveiled a new look and a new name for its Douglas Allred Branch in Carmel Valley. In honor of the late Ann Douglas and her legacy to the nonprofit organization, the branch is now called the Ann & Douglas Allred Branch. With money from a memorial fund that was established in Ann Allred’s name, the branch was repainted and refurnished with new couches and rugs. “Ann was the love of my life, and an inspiration in every single way,� said her husband, Del Mar resident Douglas Allred, at the May 21 ceremony. “I’m thrilled that this branch has improved. We’ve done the best we can and the most important thing is you kids have a good time.� Ann Douglas, a Pasadena native and longtime Del Mar resident, died May 20, 2013 from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. About half of the $22,000 in her memorial fund went toward the project. The rest of the funds will go toward scholarships for children at the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s La Colonia Branch in Solana Beach, which serves more than 60 elementary school kids and more than 40 teens each week. Located at 12353 Carmel Park Drive in Carmel Valley, the Ann & Douglas Allred Branch serves more than 40 Carmel Del Mar Elementary kindergarten through third-grade students. “This place is for the kids and their families,� said Carmel Valley resident Beatriz Eling, who has served as branch coordinator for 11 years. “I just want to say thank you for making this branch great, helping us not only have a really good program, but also, a very good-looking branch.� “It looks really pretty now,� added Eling’s 8-year-old daughter Emma, a third grader at Carmel Del Mar Elementary. “It’s great. Everyone is so nice here. It’s like a family.� For 44 years, Douglas Allred has served as a board member for the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. He was chairman of the board from 1984 to 1991. Because of his dedication and his leadership, the Allred Branch was named after him in 1990.

Throughout the years, his wife “enthusiastically supported� his work every step of the way, he said. “We’re here to recognize and honor their great partnership, and the passion and commitment Ann had for the Boys & Girls Clubs,� said David Crean, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. “It’s a great privilege to work with these guys to help many kids throughout this whole area,� added Doug Hall, who served as the club’s first executive director in 1966. “Anne was special. And having Doug involved all these years has been very special. Without him, I guarantee you, a lot of things would not have been accomplished throughout our history.� For more information about the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, visit

Q&A: Writer’s Roundtable interview with screenwriter and novelist Terry Hayes •Author to appear at June 8 event at Warwick’s in La Jolla. BY JARED KURITZ AND ANTOINETTE KURITZ Road Warrior/Mad Max 2, Mad Max: Beyond the Thunderdome, Payback with Mel Gibson; From Hell starring Johnny Depp; Vertical Limit with Chris O’Donnell; and Dead Calm with Nicole Kidman are just a few of the movies which list Terry Hayes as screenwriter. And now, after years spent writing for newspapers and the big screen, Terry Hayes has turned his hand to writing an international thriller considered to be one of the hottest books of 2014. Get a sense of what this multi-talented author has to say about his craft, and learn more when he is further interviewed by New York Times bestselling author Christopher Reich on Saturday, June 8, at 7 p.m. at Warwick’s in La Jolla. As a screenwriter, you have written some cult classics, including two of the Mad Max movies, Dead Calm, and Payback. Which were your favorite movies to write, and why? That’s an unfair question! LOL. They all mean an enormous amount to me and it’s hard to single out any one movie, but Mad Max 2/Road Warrior was the first movie I ever wrote and I think for that reason it will always occupy a special place. It gave me a career as both a producer and writer, it was an incredible learning experience and I got to work with some incredibly talented people. At least three of them went on to win Oscars, which was a pretty good strike rate for a small Australian movie. Apart from that, it had a pretty overwhelming response both critically and publicly — well, it was sure overwhelming to me! I can’t help but look back on it with the greatest affection. Forensics, particularly DNA, play a huge role in today’s TV and big screen offerings. How accurate or inaccurate is the use of this technology in storytelling? I think everybody who uses it as part of their storytelling believes it to be highly accurate and works very hard to make it so. But, like every form of science, forensics is an evolving field of study — just a few days ago it was argued that the DNA of hair samples may be far more problematic than previously thought. Similarly, sophisticated skin grafts on finger tips can either mask or alter them significantly. DNA and forensics are a tool but the more we learn, the

more we realize they are not foolproof. And, of course, with so much knowledge about forensic science being shown on TV and in movies, there are plenty of perpetrators thinking about how best to avoid leaving those crucial traces behind. Readers tend to call writers on inaccuracy. As a writer, did you find it important to thoroughly research the technology referred to in I Am Pilgrim. And do you do your research yourself, or do you have a staff to do it? I wish I had a staff. No, I do it all myself — I am a naturally curious person so I enjoy learning about different things and you never know when a seemingly unimportant detail — which you read ages ago — turns out to be enormously useful. You are right about readers

calling you out on inaccuracy, so I do my utmost to make it as correct as possible, and the only way to do that is to research, do more research, and then be prepared to follow it wherever it leads. Do you get everything right? Probably not because any novel — especially something that is epic like Pilgrim — contains so many details, so many tiny things (the rise and fall of tides in the Mediterranean, the currency they use in Syria, the make-up of a bullet proof vest, the area code of a town in Turkey) that it is almost inevitable that you will slip up somewhere along the line. Then again, any novel is meant to be a story — not an instruction manual. What do you enjoy writing more, screenplays or novels? And why? They are both storytelling, though in very different forms — so from that point of view both formats are both grueling and enjoyable. Screenplays are a harsh taskmaster — you only have 120 pages to tell the story, take the characters on an incredible journey, entertain and inspire the audience. You have a lot more freedom — and pages — in a novel. You can also use a character’s internal thoughts in a book, something that is almost impossible to do in a movie. Then again, in the latter, you can always have an explosion or a car crash to get you out of a storytelling hole! I enjoy both forms, and having worked so long in movies, I tend to think in visual scenes so I think that makes it a bit easier. In an ideal world, I would write the screenplay from my own novels and be able to use all the skills I have learned. How difficult or easy was the transition to writing novels? And what do you see as the primary difference between writ-

ing screenplays and novels? As I mentioned, it is all storytelling so you are dealing with the same basic things. At base line, you are trying to take the viewer — or reader — on an intense emotional journey. You have to keep them interested, entertained, and involved in every moment, every paragraph. How you do that is different because you have different tools. For a start, in movies you have huge budgets and actors that can bring an enormous amount to the character. In a book all you have is the type on the page. One of the biggest differences is that movies today tend to be written by a large number of people – you only have to look at the credits to see that – whereas novels are almost always a single author. One has turned out to be a team sport, the other is still singles. I think, probably as you get older, it’s easier to just have to worry about your own game. How has your training as a journalist informed your fiction – both screenplays and novels? An enormous amount. Like most journalists I have always had a huge interest in current affairs and, especially with the novel which deals with cutting-edge scientific developments. Popular culture and current developments in the world are closely linked, so that has informed, I think, everything I have written. Journalism also teaches you the importance of accuracy and you learn a lot about how to interview and research, and these are invaluable tools when it comes to other forms of writing. From where did the idea for I Am Pilgrim develop? I went to a little- known Nazi concentration camp on the French-German border some years ago and I saw a photograph See NOVELIST, page 13

Local Torrey Hills residents request student West Ocean Air Drive bike lane BY KAREN BILLING artists Some Torrey Hills residents are asking that, in the interest of safety, a bike lane be extended on West Ocean Air Drive from Via Mar De Delfinas to Via Congrejo. Currently that winners in stretch is the only two-block section of West Ocean Air without a bike lane and it is freclogged with parked cars, which neighbors feel makes it dangerous for pedestrians, city’s Water quently particularly students walking or riding to Torrey Hills Elementary School. Hills residents Joanne Midgley and Rama Subramanian made their request to Conservation paintTorrey the new bike lane at the Torrey Hills Community Planning Board meeting on May 20. Poster Midgley said 14 years ago — when she first moved to the neighborhood — the lane was supposed to be extended two more blocks. The lack of the lane was never an issue until Contest the area became overflow parking for the hotels, the Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Two local winners of the 14th Annual Children’s Water Conservation Poster Contest were honored by San Diego City Council at a ceremony on May 19. The ceremony celebrated the 19 children whose artwork helped spread the message to “Waste no Water.” The two local winning student artists were Jenny Kim, from Notre Dame Academy who received first place in the third grade category, and Sidharth Udata from Ocean Air Elementary School, second place in the fourth grade category. The city’s public utilities department holds the poster contest every year to provide a focal point for teachers to talk with students about the importance of using water wisely. “These posters celebrate our lifestyle and serve as fun artistic reminders to continue our conservation efforts all days and all ways,” said Council President Pro-tem Sherri Lightner. The winning posters will be on display at the San Diego County Fair’s Creative Youth Exhibit at the Del Mar Fairgrounds from June 7 through July 6. The posters will also be featured in the 2015 City of San Diego public utilities department’s water conservation calendar.

Suites, as well as construction vehicles. “The cars obstruct the view of pedestrians for cars coming up the street,” Midgley said, noting the problem is exacerbated by the curve of the road. “You can’t see pedestrians until it’s too late.” Janice Hoover, a representative for San Diego City Council District 1, said that city staff believes the bike lane could be feasible and the exact approval would be to remove onstreet parking in that area. Torrey Hills Planning Board Vice Chair Guy Ravad said he would like to hear from more of the community before they supported the action, noting that the decision could have an unwanted consequence. “Those cars could be moving in front of your house,” Ravad said. “That’s the downside of deleting 30 or more parking spots.” Board member Peter Gillcrist agreed that they want to make sure they don’t create another problem. “I would feel more comfortable knowing the whole community weighed in on it,” Gillcrist said. Midgley and Subramanian said they would deal with the issue if the overflow comes into their neighborhood and that there are workable compromises that can be made, but their main concern is safety.

Torrey Hills planning board pulls funding for easement enhancement BY KAREN BILLING The Torrey Hills Community Planning Board decided once and for all that a simple landscaping project should not cost in excess of $450,000 and voted to pull its funding from the city’s coffers for an easement enhancement under the SDG&E lines at the crest of East Ocean Air Drive. The money, from Torrey Hills donations and maintenance assessment district (MAD) funds has been in the city’s budget since 2007. At its May 20 meeting, the Torrey Hills board voted to use $150,000 of those funds to get the project to a point where it can be taken over by the MAD, planted and maintained, minus the grading, boulders and other decorative features. “The whole idea was to get it to stop looking like a dirt lot, spruce it up a bit,” said Torrey Hills board vice chair Guy Ravad. “I think the public works department can do that with $150,000 and return the remaining $300,000 back to the MAD budget…It prevents community assets from being wasted.” From January to March, Ravad said the board talked about ways to get the projected $441,000 price tag down but could not get solid answers from the city as to where the money was going and why items cost so much. Even as they “hacked” at the plans, removing decomposed granite paving, boulders, a bench, shade structure dry creek and trees, the project would still cost $279,000 due to soft costs such as consultant work, a site development permit and the environmental process. “We were really not getting to pick the project we wanted,” said Ravad, noting all that was really left over was some plantings and no irrigation. Torrey Hills Planning Board Chair Kathryn Burton said she was relieved the board could finally get some “closure” on this ongoing issue.

Torrey Pines Road project update to community rescheduled for June 26 The City of San Diego’s planned community update on the long-range, $26.5 million Torrey Pines Road Corridor Project — originally scheduled for the May Traffic and Transportation committee (T&T) meeting — has been rescheduled for the 4 p.m. Thursday, June 26 T&T meeting at La Jolla Rec Center, 615 Prospect St. District 1 City Council representative Sherri Lightner urges residents to bring their questions on the project, which was approved in July 2011 to slow traffic and improve pedestrian and bicycle access along Torrey Pines Road. A representative from Lightner’s office said city engineers have been working with fire officials on different options for center medians along Torrey Pines Road, though their analysis was not complete in time to present at the May meeting due to the recent wildfires. —Pat Sherman

Carmel Valley transplant recipient chairs 2014 San Diego Kidney Walk, raises awareness about organ donation BY KRISTINA HOUCK It was just five years ago when both of Craig Ramseyer’s kidneys failed. Because of a kidney donation from his longtime colleague and friend, the Carmel Valley resident was able to restore his health and recently chair the National Kidney Foundation’s 2014 San Diego Kidney Walk May 18 at NTC Liberty Park in San Diego. “You can’t express enough gratitude for someone who is willing to do that,” said Ramseyer, who will be 58 years old in August. A father of three, his twins are now 11 and his oldest is 13. “You can’t express in words how important it is.” Ramseyer suffers from polycystic kidney disease, a genetic disorder in which clusters of cysts develop within the kidneys. His kidneys functioned steadily until he turned 50. “If I didn’t do it, he was going to die,” said Rancho Bernardo resident Katherine Knudsen, who donated her kidney to Ramseyer after learning she was a match in 2009. “His health was deteriorating. I could see it every day.” For more than a decade, Ramseyer and Knudsen have both worked at San Diego law firm Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch LLP, where Ramseyer is a partner and Knudsen serves as senior counsel. The pair first met in 1987 when Ramseyer was a partner at the first law firm Knudsen joined. Prior to his surgery, Ramseyer’s kidneys were functioning at 8 percent. With dialysis on the horizon, his wife reached out to friends and family members, asking them to see whether they were a match. “Several of us went in and got tested. It just so happened that I was a match,” Knudsen said. After talking with her family, Knudsen, then 48, decided to donate her kidney to Ramseyer. They went into surgery June 17, 2009 at UC San Diego Health System’s Transplant Center. “He’s like my big brother. I’ve known him forever,” she said. “To me, it was meant to be.” Approximately 73 million American adults are at risk for kidney disease due to high blood pressure, diabetes or a family history of the genetic disorder. Of the more than 120,000 people on the national organ transplant waitlist, more than 98,000 are waiting for a life-saving kidney. Since the transplant surgery, both Ramseyer and Knudsen have served as board members of the National Kidney Foundation, an organization that aims to prevent kidney dis-

Craig Ramseyer with his family. Courtesy photo ease, improve the health and well being of individuals and families affected by the disease, and raise awareness about organ donation. Ramseyer and Knudsen’s company participates in the San Diego Kidney Walk every year. Last year, Team Procopio had about 70 members and raised almost $15,000. “There are so many people who need organs, especially kidneys. Most diseases affect kidneys,” Knudsen said. “Because so many people are in dire need of a kidney, we need to raise as much money as we can for the education and testing that’s done throughout the country so that we can combat this disease.” For more information about the National Kidney Foundation, visit

number of days they have been sober on their t-shirts and Ellman said many family members celebrate those numbers too. “The days are just as important to family members,” Ellman said. “You see a lot of emotions on walkers’ faces because addiction is an experience that really dominates a life.” Last year’s event raised funds to sponsor more than 700 days of treatment and increased the number of people the institute was able to serve by 22 percent—an additional 1,350 people were directly impacted by the walk. They are hoping this year will be even more successful and to continue to change that conversation, to “inspire change through advocacy and create a community of support for those impacted by the disease.” To register, visit For more on the McAlister Institute, visit A lifetime artist, Ellman is also selling his artwork to support his fundraising.

Carmel Valley resident named American Council on Education Fellow New performing arts, multi-purpose The American Council on Education (ACE) announced recently that Carmel Valley resident Michelle Camacho-Walter, professor and department chair of sociology at the University of San Diego, has been named an ACE Fellow for academic year 2014-15. The ACE Fellows Program, established in 1965, is designed to strengthen institutions and leadership in American higher education by identifying and preparing emerging leaders for senior positions in college and university administration. Thirty-one Fellows, nominated by the senior administration of their institutions, were selected this year following a rigorous application process. Joan Wodiska, ACE vice president and chief leadership officer, noted that many previous Fellows have advanced into major positions in academic administration. Nearly 2,000 higher education leaders have participated in the ACE Fellows Program since its inception, with more than 300 Fellows having served as chief executive officers of colleges or universities and more than

Michelle CamachoWalter with her family. 1,300 having served as provosts, vice presidents and deans. “For nearly 50 years, the ACE Fellows Program has transformed lives and grown future leaders,� said Joan Wodiska, ACE vice president and chief leadership officer. “The ACE Fellows Program is unique. The program immerses Fellows in learning experiences to

gain insight and understanding into the changing environment of higher education.� A former Fulbright Scholar, Camacho-Walter’s Ph.D. is interdisciplinary in anthropology and sociology from the University of California, Irvine. She moved to San Diego in 1999 when she held a Faculty Fellow position and a postdoctoral position at UCSD. Her recent research is funded by the National Science Foundation to examine inequities in higher education, in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Her publications appear in numerous academic journals, including American Sociologist, Latino Studies, Journal of Engineering Education, Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering. She has co-authored two books and has a third forthcoming. In 2011 she was named the McNair Mentor of the Year and also received the award for Innovative and Experiential Teaching Excellence.

fessor Award, “the highest academic honor bestowed university-wide, given in recognition of outstanding scholarly achievements in teaching and research.� Camacho lives in Carmel Valley with her husband and three children. She is a regular lector at St. Therese of Carmel Catholic Church and also teaches Zumba Fitness at the Bay Club of Carmel Valley. “I am mindful of the importance of work/life balance; my work enriches my life and I find value and meaning in serving others,� says Camacho. “My path in higher education began as a first-generation college student, and my goal is to contribute to collaborative leadership that fosters equity, supports diversity, and advances knowledge. Ultimately, all of my work is driven by a commitment to social justice, with the aim of generating practices that make an impact.� For more information, visit or follow ACE on Twitter @ACEducation.

buildings planned for SD Jewish Academy

BY KAREN BILLING San Diego Jewish Academy is planning for a new 409seat performing arts center and multi-purpose building. The buildings will take the place of a previously approved second gym. The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board approved the new buildings at its May 21 meeting, on the condition that color renderings and material samples are presented to the board as the plans progress. SDJA was founded in San Diego in 1979 and has been in Carmel Valley off Carmel Creek Road since 2000. Jeff Barfield, of RBF Consulting, said the campus has evolved since the master plan was developed and approved in 1999 — the original plans had been for the 48,000 square feet of land at the school to house a second gym. Barfield said in reviewing the plan, SDJA deemed the second gym was not necessary anymore as its existing gym, which the school had always planned on being its smaller, second gym, has served all of the school’s needs. The addition of the two buildings does nothing to change the campus’ footprint nor does it allow for a bigger school population, Barfield said. The buildings will be accessed through a circular piazzastyle motor court with decorative pavers. There will be a landscape buffer between the parking area and the Carmel Valley Restoration Enhancement Project (CVREP) trail. The gym was planned to be 48-feet tall and while the performing arts center will be a similar height, it will be set back farther and, additionally, will be screened behind the 27-foot-tall multi-purpose building. As long as funding is available, Barfield said they also plan to do a series of retaining walls with flat planting areas to plant Torrey Pines and create a “Torrey Pines forest.� “We think it’s a much better situation and much less visible from the CVREP trail,� Barfield said. The building will use natural stone, cedar plank towers and earth tones with the goal of blending with the rest of the campus and the surrounding open space.

CURTIS L. CHAN, DDS CELEBRATING 26 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE IN FAMILY DENTAL CARE During the cookie season, Carmel Valley residents would often spot Girl Scout Zoe Antonoff with her cookie mobile. The 13-year-old member of Carmel Valley Troop 1276 sold 2,161 boxes of Girl Scout cookies this year. She and her fellow troop members will use their cookie proceeds for a summer trip and for their Silver project (developing a website for Carmel Valley Girl Scouts). In addition, Zoe earned a Girl Scout camp session.

Local Girl Scout helps fuel success of Operation Thin Mint Thirteen-year-old Girl Scout Zoe Antonoff of Carmel Valley was among top cookie sellers saluted by military dignitaries and other VIPs during the 13th annual Operation Thin Mint Sendoff celebration May 3 aboard the USS Midway Museum. Zoe sold 2,162 boxes of cookies this past spring, of which 752 were donated for Operation Thin Mint to ship to deployed military troops. She is one of just 31 Girl Scouts in the San Diego-Imperial region who sold 2,014 or more boxes in 2014. Zoe is a member of Carmel Valley Troop 1276, which is led by her mother, Cassie Doerfling.

Zoe and the other top sellers took center stage with Congressman Juan Vargas and military dignitaries at the sendoff. This is the 10th consecutive year the USS Midway Museum hosted the public event. More than 2,600 revelers gathered on the historic ship’s flight deck as an Uncle Sam on stilts revealed that generous San Diegans are shipping a total of 198,470 boxes of OTM cookies to troops this year. The colorful event also featured skydivers and a Coast Guard helicopter airlifting a pallet of Thin Mints from the Midway to demonstrate how cookies are delivered to some ships.

Every dollar of cookie proceeds stays local to fund Girl Scouting. Zoe and her fellow troop members plan to use a portion of their earnings for a getaway to Seattle or San Francisco next summer and part for their Silver project, a website for Carmel Valley Girl Scouts. In addition, as a cookie sales reward, Zoe earned a trip to Girl Scout camp. Through other Girl Scouting activities, Zoe supports the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, in tribute to her father’s four years of remission from cancer. For more information, visit or call (619) 298-8391.

Volunteer event May 31 to clean up Carmel Valley canyon after fire Friends of Gonzales Canyon is hosting a volunteer work party on Saturday, May 31, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to help clean an area that was recently damaged in a fire.

FAIR continued from page 1 industry and our guests new and exciting themes and entertainment that are loads of fun and appeal to the entire family,” Fennell said. “Creativity, innovation, education, novelty and good old family fun makes the San Diego County Fair, in my humble opinion, the best fair in the world.” As the largest annual event in the county and one of the top 10 fairs in the United States and Canada, the San Diego County Fair attracts more than 1.4 million fairgoers each year.

VETERANS continued from page 1 “I’m in awe,” said Renteria, who had tears in her eyes after Roberts made his announcement. “For some families, every day is Memorial Day. That’s what we must never forget.” A $4 million improvement plan for La Colonia Park and Community Center included recognition for veterans, but the project was put on hold indefinitely due to lack of funding. Funds were to come from

One of the biggest draws? Food. Fair mainstay Chicken Charlie’s is back. Last year, his top seller was deep-fried cookie dough. This year, Charlie is serving a triple cheeseburger on Krispy Kreme donuts instead of buns. He’s also excited to introduce fried chicken — no meat, just the skins. “I don’t know if I’m crazy or I’m a genius. All I know is everything I see, I question if I can fry it or not,” said Charlie Boghosian, who has served fried food at the fair for nearly 30 years, 18 years as the owner of Chicken Charlie’s. “Even if it’s not on the

healthy side, it’s not something you’re gong to eat all the time. That’s what makes it so fun. Once a year you get to try something different.” The Big Bite Bacon Fest will also return for a second year on July 5. The event features a variety of bacon dishes paired with samples of San Diego’s top craft beer. “Just get your bacon on,” said Kelleigh Strobel, promotions director of Big Bite Events. She noted that nearly 4,000 people attended the inaugural Big Bite Bacon Fest to sample bacon-themed dishes from roughly 40 restaurants last year. “It’s

an awesome event and there’s something for everybody.” Other fair highlights this year include the “J.F.K. Experience,” which commemorates the 50th anniversary of his assassination. The exhibition will include a re-creation of the Oval Office, a replica fuselage of Air Force One and a collection of gowns worn by first ladies during inaugurations. On June 14, the Toast of the Coast wine festival will feature wines from California and Baja California wineries. The San Diego International Beer Festival June 20-22 will offer more than 400 beers from

around the world. Performances for the Summer Concert Series include Third Eye Blind on June 7, Jeff Dunham on June 12, Darius Rucker on June 13, Hunter Hayes on June 14, Smokey Robinson on June 20, Toni Braxton and Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds on June 21, REO Speedwagon on July 2, and more. The fair opens June 7 and runs through July 6. Daily admission is $14 for adults, $8 for children ages 6-12 and $8 for adults 62 and older. Children 5 and younger receive free admission. A season pass is $24. For more information, visit

the city’s redevelopment agency, but Gov. Jerry Brown abolished redevelopment agencies in 2011. In 2012, the council approved plans for what was originally slated to be a veterans’ memorial, after a community group asked if the project could move forward separately from the La Colonia renovation. Currently, a flagpole and a 2-foot boulder serve as a memorial at La Colonia Park, where the city and Solana Beach Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5431 host annual Veterans Day and Memorial Day ceremonies.

Pictures of veterans are also posted on a wall inside the community center. Led by VFW Post 5431 Commander Randy Treadway, the 2014 Memorial Day ceremony featured the presentation of colors by the Camp Pendleton Young Marines, a military musical melody by the Santa Fe Christian School Band and a “Doves from Heaven” release. “I’m very honored to be part of this important occasion. On behalf of the entire Solana Beach City Council, our city’s deep appreciation goes out to all

who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces and their families,” said Deputy Mayor Lesa Heebner during the ceremony. “We are indebted to them, and we will not forget.” Construction plans for the courtyard are being completed, Heebner said. The city will issue a request for proposals as early as July. A groundbreaking ceremony will be held in the fall. “Next year for our Memorial Day ceremony, we will have a brand new Veterans Honor Courtyard put

together by the community, county and city, for all of us to be here again to celebrate this beautiful day,” Heebner said. To raise funds for the project, the community group is selling 12-by-12 inch tiles that will be placed in the courtyard. Tiles will feature the name, rank, branch of service, war and years of service of any veteran, and cost $300 each. For more information about the project, and to donate or purchase a tile, visit

RETAIL continued from page 1 there’s enough demand to do retail on our site as well.” The plan will be reviewed in more detail at the planning board’s regional issues subcommittee meeting on June 4 at 4:30 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Library. Finley said the design would have the same look and feel that was originally proposed, with vertical mixed-use facing the access street, Village Way. The plans aim to give the curving street a feeling of warmth by having the flats above the retail spaces utilize design features, such as overhangs, balconies and French windows. In another change to the plan, only 40-45 flats will be above the retail, instead of all of them on the second story — the rest will be behind those buildings in townhome-style units. “It won’t be as dense on the street but will have the same stacking,” Finley said. Finley said they tried to get away from underground parking but they will need it for the retail uses — there will likely be one-to-two levels of underground parking.

Fiesta Del Sol: Rocking Solana Beach for 35 years BY DEL SOL LIONS PRESIDENT DAVID CAIN AND SOLANA BEACH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PRESIDENT CAROLYN COHEN Where were you leading up to the summer of 1979? Elton John had just become the first pop star to perform in Israel, the San Diego Chicken was reborn at Jack Murphy Stadium, Margaret Thatcher was elected as the woman prime minister of the United Kingdom and Solana Beach was hosting the 1st annual Fiesta Del Sol. Thanks to a strong collaborative effort between the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce, the City of Solana Beach and the Belly Up Tavern, more than 50,000 festival-goers will again experience the most unique and anticipated events of the year in the San Diego region. The Fiesta Del Sol, taking place Saturday, May 31, and Sunday, June 1, this year, is a two-day festival that truly lives up to the billing as an event with something for everyone. Families can stroll the music-filled streets surrounding Fletcher’s Cove visiting with more than 200 vendors offering an eclectic array of exhibits, arts and crafts and children’s activities. New this year, the Fiesta Del Sol will feature an array of gourmet food trucks offering tantalizing choices. The world-famous Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach offered its connections to create an awesome ensemble of musicians taking turns on the stage for two straight days. This year’s headliners are Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe on Saturday and Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real on Sunday, bands that will bring a wave of talent, rock and roll and getting crowds on the dance floor.

there which I found particularly heart-breaking. It never left me and I think, in a way, that was the first tentative step on the road to developing the story. It features in the book and is a significant influence on the childhood of the man code-named Pilgrim.

Del Sol Lions and Solana Beach Chamber volunteers in the wine garden at last year’s event. Courtesy photo rocks Solana Beach with a diverse musical showcase providing continuous live music. The lineup is rich with rock, reggae, soul, funk, jazz, blues, Latin and worldbeat, to name a few, spanning cultures and countries from Africa to Brazil to the United States. Adults can enjoy a beverage or two while taking in the music at the adults-only beer and wine gardens. The Del Sol Lions Club will be volunteering at the Fiesta Del Sol’s wine garden, working for tips with the goal of raising $1,500 for backpacks and schools supplies for more than 200 students from Casa de Amistad – a local non-profit which manages a K-12 tutoring and mentoring program for children in need in Solana Beach. We encourage you to stop in, grab a glass of wine while listening to some tunes and pitch in a few dollars on this community effort. For the littler Fiesta-goers, the Fiesta Del Sol also has a kids center filled with rides, games and hands-on activities. Favorite destinations include the hair salon and face painter. The climbing wall and bounce houses are always a big hit too. Our Solana Beach community is proud to open its doors during this great weekend to give the surrounding communities a taste of our businesses, quality of life and the city we are lucky enough to enjoy year-round. The Highway 101 redevelopment project has significantly improved the pedestrian and cyclist-friendliness on the corridor which offers wider sidewalks, additional crossing signals, new landscaping, sharrows and more parking. We encourage you to take stroll down Highway 101 and visit some of the unique shops dotting the landscape – before, during or after your Fiesta experience. Summer officially starts on June 21, but the Solana Beach community likes to stay ahead of the game to ensure the best season of the year is kick-started with the best party of the season.

believe is more important to a good novel? It’s almost impossible to say. The two things have to work in tandem — you can’t have a meaningful plot without a compelling character and vice versa. I knew I wanted to do a story about a loner, a covert agent, who goes on an extraordinary journey, but all the details of him and his quest had to develop together. You pull one sock up, and then the other! I guess you could say it’s like a really good marriage. As a result, both are equally important in a novel —each informs and propels the other. Without a character you’ve just got a synopsis; without a plot, you’ve just got a per-

son. Most of all, you’d have a world of problems. What do you hope the reader takes away from reading I Am Pilgrim? A real concern for the dangers that confront us. There has been a huge hemorrhaging of previously secret information on the internet and that, combined with breathtaking scientific advances, has opened up a whole new world of threats.

Education Matters/Opinion

A vote for decency on the county school board

BY MARSHA SUTTON A lawyer once told me he would rather defend rapists and murderers than dive into the ugly world of education politics. Although joking Marsha Sutton (sort of), I take his point. Having written about education for the last 18 years and suffered more than my share of abuse for the positions I have espoused, I vowed never again to enter into a debate about the merits of one candidate over another for school board seats. That was until I learned that words I had written over three years ago had been dug up and used, actually misused, on a hit piece mailer. These words were reprinted without my permission or knowledge, taken out of context, and included to push the agenda of a candidate I do not support. Furthermore, the quote expressed my anger at a unanimous vote taken by an entire school board, not the one individual the hit piece targets. Using my words in this way is deplorable, deceptive and, sadly, likely very effective – especially considering that the mailers were sent to voters in North County who reside in communities beyond the readership area of this newspaper and may never see this column. Vying to replace Sue Hartley on the County Board of Education for District 5 are Doug Perkins and Rick Shea. Three hit pieces supporting Shea have been mailed in the last few weeks, all of them slamming Perkins, while Perkins has had one distributed that never mentions his opponent. Just on the surface, knowing nothing else about the two candidates, which would you support? The one twisting facts to relentlessly blast his opponent, or the one refusing to engage in negative advertising? It’s the second mailer, which oddly enough I never received, that contains my quote. The first and third pieces appeared in all their nasty glory in my mailbox, but not the one with my name on it. I learned about it only from others. The fragmented sentence quoted in the piece is this: “A monumental misuse of taxpayer money and an embarrassment for the local community.” — Marsha Sutton, Del Mar Times This is the full quote, which ran in a column published Sept. 1, 2011: “The irresponsible allocation by the Del Mar Union School District of the Federal Education Jobs Funds during a financial crisis is a monumental misuse of taxpayer money and an embarrassment for the local community.” The point of that 2011 column was to alert the community to the Del Mar Union School District’s decision, supported unanimously by all five trustees and then-superintendent Jim Peabody, to spend a one-time allotment of $500,000 in Federal Education Jobs Fund money by giving cash bonuses of $1,000 to all full-time employees in the district. Although the misallocation of free money still aggravates me, what aggravates more is the implication in the mailer that my anger was directed solely at Perkins, one of the five trustees. To extract a phrase from something writ-

ten nearly three years ago, and use my words to give the false impression that I support Shea, is despicable. When I asked about the mailer, Shea, who ran unsuccessfully in 2010 for the San Dieguito Union High School District school board, wrote in an email, “As I’m sure you know, the mailer is not my mailer. It was put out by AFT.” He’s right: All three hit pieces were paid for by the American Federation of Teachers union, so Shea has cover and Nixonian-like plausible deniability. I wrote back the following message but never received a reply: “So does that mean you disavow the contents and accept no responsibility for the piece?” As an aside, the Del Mar teachers union strongly approved that cash give-away in 2011 and applauded the school board’s action. How ironic that the AFT is appearing to criticize Perkins for supporting the cash bonuses. Also ironic is Shea’s lawn sign slogan, which reads: “Quality education – not politics.” Really? Not sure how his campaign could be more political. But that’s not all. Each of Shea’s mailers contains a list of endorsements, but at least one of those listed did not endorse Shea and asked that the name be removed. It was not removed and continued to appear on the second and third mailers. How many other “endorsements” might also not be true? Aren’t we better than this? Why would any upright citizen want to run for elected office when they would be subject to this kind of personal abuse and undeserved negativity? By contrast, Perkins’ direct mail piece, paid for by advocates for the California Charter Schools Association, never mentions his opponent and focuses only on his own qualifications for the seat and his long list of solid credentials. If you know little about either man, Perkins is the one running the decent campaign that doesn’t stoop to shameful attacks on opponents, disgraceful deception, and win-at-allcosts tactics. — Marsha Sutton can be reached at Upcoming topics: •San Dieguito Union High School District athletes scheduled for sports physicals next week through their foundations should know that, despite language indicating otherwise, students do not need to pay their foundation $25 for physicals. Going through the foundation is optional, even though flyers did not make that clear. Furthermore, a legal complaint charges that the school district may be on the hook to pay for sports physicals entirely. •Should students be charged a permit fee to park their cars in school parking lots, when teachers can park their cars for free? •Look for the school district to reimburse families this year that paid graduation cap-andgown fees which it appears were charged illegally. •A legal challenge may mean students’ tests, upon request, should be allowed to come home for parent-student review. • Why one obscure exposure of an invoice payment may mean less transparency for everyone on San Dieguito school board agendas.

UCSB/Isla Vista shooting: Their loss is ours As a parent of a UCSB freshman I feel compelled to write about the recent shooting incident involving our students in nearby Isla Vista. We should all be personally touched by these events. I hope that many reach out to those affected families and reflect on the deeper issues at the root of this tragedy. It is beyond comprehension that the victims – young, hopeful, promising men and women were denied their right to a future. It is heartbreaking to think of the many families and friends whose lives will be forever diminished by the loss of their loved ones. Their grief should be our grief. Their loss is ours. It is hard to believe that in this era of networking and connectivity that a young man can feel so isolated, sad and alone. That his heartache can turn to hate, anger and a break with reality. Our society often fails outliers. I urge you to reach out when someone is slipping. A small gesture can make a difference. How is it possible that a disturbed young man can acquire such an impressive hoard of weapons? As a Canadian, it is perplexing. I am not implying that such an event would not occur in my home country. A horrible campus mass shooting occurred in 1989 at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. This incident resulted in more stringent gun control legislation in Canada. South of the border we seem more tolerant of gun violence. Despite massive outpouring of grief after school massacres, I do not see concrete changes that limit access to weapons. In fact, several states are moving towards liberalization. I urge parents to pressure politicians and to examine their own tolerance of the prevailing gun culture. This incident was partly motivated by perceived rejection of the perpetrator by women. The Montreal massacre where feminists were targeted had a similar chilling theme. Misogyny permeates our society. I hope that we engage in meaningful discussion with our teens about stereotypes and the sexual objectification of young women. By breaking down misconceptions our kids are more likely to nurture healthy and balanced relationships. On Tuesday, May 27, classes were cancelled at UCSB. A fund has been established to honor UCSB students who were victims of this tragedy and to memorialize their lasting impact and contributions to the UC Santa Barbara community. do?n=Fs@5Cs&dfdbid=1203702 Karen Tipler MD Carmel Valley

In-Lieu Parking Fee program requires a year-round shuttle system While we are considering a new Del Mar City Hall with a new parking structure for public parking, I thought it would be worthwhile to point out the In-Lieu Parking Fee program does not suggest just a huge parking structure, but does require also a fully operational, year-round shuttle system throughout the commercial zone to Powerhouse/ Seagrove Park before more than 50 In-Lieu Fees can be sold. See DMMC 30.80.170 G. “In-Lieu Parking Fees cannot be collected for more than 50 total parking spaces before both the public parking facility and shuttle system are fully operational. Once the In-Lieu Parking Fee Program becomes fully operational, the City shall utilize its best efforts to continue the Program.” It seems it isn’t required to have a 200-space parking structure at one location. In fact, it is suggested only that public parking spaces be provided throughout the C-zone, down 15th to Powerhouse/Seagrove Parks. With a yearround shuttle system, a large underground parking structure could be located under either of the parks at the beach! Wouldn’t that benefit the parking problems at both the beach and the commercial zone? The Coastal Commission would certainly like that! The sooner we get additional public parking and shuttle, the sooner we can sell more of the in-expensive InLieu Parking Fees to re-develop the private properties downtown! Ralph Peck Del Mar

CCA Ravens conclude historic lacrosse season The Canyon Crest Girls Lacrosse team recently concluded its 2014 season, finishing with an outstanding overall record of 18-3, while earning the number 1 seed in the San Diego CIF Open Division playoffs. Following two impressive playoff wins over La Jolla and Poway High Schools, the girls earned a trip to the CIF Open championship game, eventually losing to defending champion La Costa Canyon 12 to 9 in a hard-fought contest. The season marked the Ravens’ first Palomar league championship, finishing with a perfect league record of 6-0. During the season, the Ravens held the number 1 ranking in San Diego County by Max Preps for most of the year and have been consistently ranked within the top 10 teams in all of California. This year’s impressive season follows last year’s breakthrough performance in which the Ravens captured the CIF Division 1 championship, defeating Cathedral Catholic in the final game. The 2014 Ravens squad was led by head coach Rebecca Kingsbury, assistant coach Trevor Kingsbury and team captains Emma Normoyle, Alexa Carter and Palomar League Player of the Year Katie Carlson. Expect the Ravens to be a major player again in San Diego high school lacrosse in 2015 with 12 returning players from this year’s varsity team to participate again next season.

Local philanthropist to be featured in photo exhibit highlighting inspirational women

TPHS student wins Optimist International Oratorical Contest BY KRISTINA HOUCK As a young boy, Hanrui Zhang was shy. Now a sophomore at Torrey Pines High School, Hanrui is the recent winner of the Optimist International Oratorical Contest at the California-South District level. “It’s a really big accomplishment,” said 16-year-old Hanrui, who was sponsored by the Del Mar-Solana Beach Optimist Club. “It shows my hard work can pay off.” At 13 years old, Hanrui enrolled at San Diego-based Academy for Public Speaking to sharpen his speaking skills. With new confidence and skills, Hanrui gave a speech during his eighth-grade promotion ceremony at Carmel Valley Middle School the following year. Recognizing his talent, Hanrui’s teacher and speech coach, Kathleen Petrone, encouraged him to participate in the Optimist International contest for the past four years. On his fourth try, he won the coveted district title, a plaque and a $2,500 scholarship. “I just thought [his winning speech] was outstanding,” said John R. Murphy, a Point Loma-based speech and presentation coach who has emceed the contest for the past three years. “I do a lot of work with at-risk kids. To be able to use Hanrui as an example, I’ve actually got some of my kids to enter the oratorical contest. He’s been an inspiration to them.” At school, Hanrui has used his skills as a member on the speech and debate team. In addition, he plays the cello in Torrey Pines’ advanced orchestra and serves as a staff writer on the school’s student newspaper. “For bringing many people information as a journalist, by selecting arguments as a debater that inspires the audience to change themselves and others, and, by communicating intellectually and spiritually through a group of people as a musician, my passions can change the world,” said Hanrui in his winning speech, which he presented again during the Del Mar-Solana Beach Optimist Club’s May 21 dinner meeting. See CONTEST, page B22

BY KRISTINA HOUCK An act of kindness from a former employer in a time of need set Ruth Westreich on a path where she has since been able to pay it forward. In recognition of her work in the community, the local woman will be one of 40 featured in “Notes to Our Sons and Daughters: My Sister’s Voice,” a photography exhibition June 6 in San Diego. “It’s important that women’s voices be heard, and it’s important that we all learn from each other,” said Westreich, a local philanthropist and artist who made necklaces for all of the honorees. As one of the event’s honorary chairs, she plans to present the women with the necklaces during a private reception June 5 at her Fairbanks Ranch home. Originally from South Los Angeles, Westreich’s father died when she was young, leaving her as the primary income earner for her family. At 19, Westreich got a full-time job at a carpet company instead of going to college. Inspired by her dedication, her employer helped her financially. All he asked was that she help others one day. “I was able to get through with the kindness of a family,” Westreich said. “Had I not, I could have been, very easily, one of those kids that fall through the cracks of society.” Westreich went on to study design at Woodbury University and UCLA before she met her husband, Stanley Westreich, and had two children. More than a decade ago, she founded The Westreich Foundation, an initiative-based foundation that aims to advance health and wellness, education and literacy, and leadership. “It just became so ingrained in who I am and what I’m about,” Westreich said. “I didn’t let my early circumstances define who I am, but it did define who I am in the world.” Directed by Alexis Dixon, “My Sister’s Voice” is

Ruth Westreich the second photo exhibit in a series called “Notes to Our Sons and Daughters.” Held in October 2012 at the Broadway Pier in Downtown San Diego, the first exhibit combated ageism and celebrated wisdom. The first exhibit stemmed from Dixon’s background in mediation, a field he has worked in for more than 15 years both in the U.S. and abroad in government and corporate settings. Although he didn’t plan on turning it into a series, he was inspired to create a second exhibit after hearing the story of Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani activist known for championing education for girls. She rose to prominence internationally after the Taliban shot her in the head in 2012. “That story just wouldn’t let me go,” Dixon said. “It just held onto me. I had to do something about it.” In an effort to “create a space where women’s voices could be heard,” Dixon decided to create “My Sister’s Voice.” The multimedia exhibition will feature 40 portraits of women from diverse generations and cultures, captured by photographer Pablo Mason. A short video documentary and a “note” will accompany each photograph. The youngest woman featured in the exhibit is 17 and the oldest is 92. “They have very different journeys, but the spirit and the texture of these women are very similar,” Dixon said. “There’s this force about what it means to be a

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Center for Community Solutions, a nonprofit organization that operates the only rape crisis center in the city of San Diego along with a countywide 24-hour bilingual crisis helpline. Founded in 1969, CCS serves more than 11,000 adults and children each year through emergency domestic violence shelters, hospital and court accompaniment, as well as legal and counseling services for those affected by rape, domestic violence and elder abuse. “This event was not just about raising money to us. It is very much in tandem with what we believe and what we’re trying to promote: empowering the voices of women,” said Verna Griffin-Tabor, CEO and executive director of CCS, which has 88 staff members and 200 volunteers. “Certainly locally, the crimes that we see end up silencing people. People end up blaming themselves for crimes they didn’t commit. We saw this as a way to put a spotlight on women’s voices.” Griffin-Tabor, as well as two of the nonprofit’s clients, are among the 40 honorees. “We are really honored and humbled and couldn’t be more grateful to have this opportunity,” Griffin-Tabor said. “These are 40 amazing women. It’s really an inspirational exhibit.” A book featuring the black and white photos, as well as bios of the women, will be available for sale at the exhibit and online. Proceeds will also benefit CCS. “It’s a stunning book,” Westreich said. “The photographer has really brought out something in each of the women. You can really see something behind their eyes. It’s like a window into them.” The VIP reception begins at 5 p.m. June 6, followed by the general reception and exhibit at the Broadway Pier, located at 1000 North Harbor Drive in San Diego. General admission costs $175. VIP tickets cost $250. “I hope others recognize that the way to transform the world is to begin by listening to others,” Dixon said. “These are the people we live with. It’s our community. The greatest gift we can give members of our community is to listen to them. And simply listening to the story of another person opens the door for them to listen to you.” For more information about the event and to purchase tickets, visit For more information about CCS, visit For more information about The Westreich Foundation, visit

Collaboration on Globe’s ‘Dog and Pony’ looks promising

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANA SAENGER The three collaborators behind the Old Globe’s world premiere of the romantic musical comedy, “Dog and Pony,” are playwright Rick Elice, composer Michael Patrick Walker and director Roger Rees. The trio has much in common and their body of work is well noted. The plot follows a successful screenwriting team, Mags and Andy, as their professional relationship evolves into something more. Blending three different talents on one project takes a lot of collaboration, and that’s something Elice said he enjoys doing. Elice also penned “The Addams Family,” “Peter and the Starcatcher,” and with Marshall Brickman co-wrote “Jersey Boys,” which won the 2006 Tony Award, 2007 Grammy Award, and 2009 Olivier Award for Best Musical. “The screwball comedies of the 1930s and early ‘40s dealt with the imitate circumstances between men and women in the workplace, who were not husband and wife,” Elice said. “In my experience, I found myself in a situation that was intimate, even romantic at times, and it seemed to

Photo by Jim Cox. supersede other relationships in our lives. Eventually, things changed from incredibly seductive to a little sour.” It was while acting in a play by Elaine May (half of the of Mike Nichols and Elaine May comedy team) that Elice said he began to talk to her about their personal relationship. “Her voice stuck in my head and I decided I wanted to write a story about a girl like her and a guy like me, not a marital-sanction relationship guy, and how that would wreck everything eventually,” he said. “The pleasure for me in collaborating with Michael, a wonderful composer and lyrist who wrote ‘Altar Boyz,’ and ‘Land of Dreams,’ is the songs seem to grow out of the dialogue in a way that is stealthy, clever and not corny. “ ‘Dog and Pony,’ feels very modern, but is not divisive in its structure because before you realize it, the characters are not speaking anymore they are singing.” It was director Rees (“Julius Caesar,” “The Merry

Wives of Windsor”), who got the call from Globe’s Artistic Director Barry Edelstein who was looking for a good new musical. Rees suggested he try “Dog and Pony.” “When Barry asked me about Roger directing I said, ‘could I be that lucky?’” Elice laughed. “Roger is a wonderful director. He directed ‘Peter and the Starcatcher.’ He knows so much about the theater and is so good in the room. Actors love him.” “I think I’m hard wired into musical theater in particular because it’s still around … as humans, we respond to sitting in the dark with other people having a socializing experience where we all witness something that’s happing before us that is probably not true, but for two hours of time, we are happy to believe it is true.” Note: Elice’s “Jersey Boys” the movie hits theaters in June.

The North County Shark Tank to be held at CCA June 1 BY MAITHU KOPPOLU CANYON CREST ACADEMY CLASS OF 2016 After years of excellence at both schools, Canyon Crest Academy and San Dieguito Academy have joined forces to offer their students yet another amazing opportunity: The North County Shark Tank, to be held on June 1 in the Canyon Crest Academy Proscenium Theater. Students, parents, and community members are welcome to this Sunday evening event (5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.) where student visionaries will take advantage of two panels of investors, A.K.A. “sharks,” with ties in the science and business fields. Ideas will range from healthy fast food concepts to modeling the flow of energy in migrations; the discussion will evolve as the night progresses, with audience voting as well as Q&A sessions with the “sharks.” The goal of this unique event is to bring the business and science community together in support of student creativity, ingenuity and brains. After reviewing a slew of applications from both the business and Quest science programs, a group of finalists were selected to proceed to the final event on June 1. And then the student finalists will enter the tank. Following the footsteps of the hit ABC television series The Shark Tank, the event will commence with students showcasing their ideas to investors that specialize in these fields, gaining input and creating bonds that will prove useful in the future. Unlike the show, the panel will be looking to support and help the students move their ideas forward. The chance to discuss a product with masters of that very discipline is bound to be a life-changing event, and to be able to watch it unfold will be equally as rewarding. Following both sessions of the Shark Tank, the night will conclude with an awards banquet, including two awards for the winners of each side of the Shark Tank (Science and Business), as well as a People’s Choice Award, where the audience will have the chance to text in their vote and contribute to the decision. Although only three awards will be given out, the night will still be an outstanding chance for students to expose their ideas to the world, and gain professional feedback as well. Having the community come together for the North County Shark Tank will be an amazing display of support for these finalists and their interests, creating a sense of hope and determination similar to that of the show the event is modeled after. Community members, family members, fans of the show, are all welcome to come and support student entrepreneurship. There will food, pitches, and audience voting to support your favorite idea—so come and join in. It’s free! The Canyon Crest Foundation is a parent-led 501(c)(3) organization providing fantastic opportunities across academics, athletics, and the arts, and creating an environment where students can thrive. Your tax-deductible donation to the CCA Foundation is vitally needed to continue our support of these programs. You can donate online at

Band and guitar classes will play a concert at the event, and art will be on display from the school’s Art for New Media, Digital Art, and Studio Art classes.

Ballet Arte’s spring production of the classic story ballet “Sleeping Beauty” will be the last performance for four longtime students trained at the ballet school’s Solana Beach studios. Roya Chagnon, Sophie Williams, Wren Ponder and Junyi Zheng will be pursuing academic and professional opportunities in other cities, leaving behind good friends and cherished memories of their years at Ballet Arte. Roya, 18, has studied ballet for 13 years at Ballet Arte Academy. She will be attending UC Berkeley and will continue to dance as a hobby. “I have made the most amazing friends at the studio and I thank the directors, Sara Viale and Erlends Zieminch, for having given me the opportunity to perform in two professional-level classical ballets every year.” Sophie, 17, a student for 10 years, will become a trainee with either Miami City Ballet or Royal Winnipeg Ballet. “Sara and Erlends are the best teachers I could ever wished to have and I will be forever grateful for all the opportunities and advice they have given me towards my career as a professional dancer.” Wren, 17, will be attending Columbia Universty in New York City. She plans to continue to dance by joining the Columbia Ballet Collaborative, a student group. “Sara and Erlends have been so supportive and kind throughout my seven years at the school. Not only do they teach ballet, but also how to be focused and confident in every walk of life.” Junyi, 18 , a student for three years, will be attending UC Berkeley and plans to continue to dance. “I love the individualized attention at Ballet Arte and how the directors have combined extensive training with a warm, inviting environment that makes every class, rehearsal and performance a celebration of the joy and beauty of dance.” Ballet Arte’s “Sleeping Beauty” will be held at David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre, Lawrence Family JCC, La Jolla, on Saturday, June 7, at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Box Office: 858362-1348 or online:

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS 2014 Encinitas Rotary Wine Festival to be held June 7 North County Blind Company can do ‘just about anything’ related to window coverings BY KRISTINA HOUCK As victims of the recent wildfires in San Diego County move forward and begin to rebuild, a local company has offered to help homeowners save on design costs. Based in Encinitas, North County Blind Company is giving a 10 percent discount on its products to those who have lost their homes. “When people are having a hard time, it’s about community,” said owner Rebecca Greene, who noted North County Blind Company offered a similar discount to victims of the 2007 wildfires. “I’ve always taken care of my customers, and they’ve always taken care of me, too.” North County Blind Company has served the community since 1985. As a Hunter Douglas Gallery Showroom, the company offers a full line of Hunter Douglas window coverings, and can also create custom draperies, shades, valances and cornices in a variety of fabrics. From design and measurements, to installation and troubleshooting, the staff at North County Blind Company can do “just about anything,” Greene said. “We believe that you have to take care of the customer,” she said. “We don’t want them just to like what they’re getting. They have to love it.” With a background in both finance and restaurants, Greene joined the window treatment business in 1991 when her late husband became ill and needed assistance with the company. Since then, Greene has steadily grown the business, with competitive prices and dedicated customer service. “I love what we do,” said Greene, who even met her best friend on the job. “I like connecting with people and making relationships, and, above all, having fun. It should be fun doing your window coverings. It’s a creative experience.” North County Blind Company is located at 264 North El Camino Real, Suite G, Encinitas, 92024. The showroom

The 11th Annual Encinitas Rotary Wine & Food Festival will be held on Saturday, June 7, from 5-8 p.m. in the Hamilton Children’s Garden at San Diego Botanic Garden.

The Rotary’s overall goal is aligned with the Garden’s; both strive to be leaders in promoting and implementing sustainable, eco-friendly practices. The Wine & Food Festival is a wonderful way to spend a fun evening with friends while supporting San Diego Botanic Garden, enjoying fine wines, the best dishes from local restaurants, music, and a live and silent auction. This event is held at the Garden and presented by the Encinitas Rotary Club. Each year, the Rotary selects local beneficiaries to become a part of the event’s fundraising efforts. Tickets are priced at three levels: $90, $135 & $500. San Diego Botanic Garden will receive $60 of each $90 ticket and 100 percent of the other two categories. To designate the Garden as the beneficiary of choice please select San Diego Botanic Garden when purchasing tickets. Tickets can be purchased at This very popular event has sold out for the past five years.

TPHS Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to deserving students Fundraising efforts of the TPHS Scholarship Fund board culminated in a spectacular awards ceremony held May 21 for college-bound Torrey Pines High School seniors. The 22- member board comprised of TPHS parents, past parents, and community child advocates devoted to supporting continued education awarded 50 scholarships totaling $33,500 to deserving students. The TPHS Scholarship Fund (formerly known as TPHS Dollars for Scholars) meets year round and has been the official scholarship arm at TPHS for over 27 years. Awards are granted based on merit, need, and individual criteria. Local businesses and families who sponsor scholarships joined the board to personally hand their scholarship to the thankful awardees. Alumni scholar, Keirsten Newquist returned from her freshman year at UC Berkeley to give words of advice to the graduating seniors. She let them know that the college experience transcends the classroom into learning how to grow as an independent individual. Principal David Jaffe presented Principal awards to Daisy Aguilar, Lucy An, Jourdan Johnson, and Peter Mitchell, congratulating them on their accomplishments. He recognized all awardees as outstanding representatives of Torrey Pines High School. For a complete list of scholarship recipients and more information, visit Photos by Jon Clark.

Canyon Crest Academy Dollars for Scholars awards scholarships An exceptional group of seniors from Canyon Crest Academy were awarded scholarships at the Canyon Crest Dollars for Scholars (DFS) Awards ceremony on May 20 at the CCA Proscenium Theater. “Readers volunteering for DFS as well as volunteers from our school and local community reviewed 197 applications from CCA students, representing an 11 percent increase from the previous year,” said Beth Broussalian, CCA DFS board president. “ Each application was scored anonymously based on a detailed rubric that evaluated details of the student’s extracurricular activities, leadership experience, honors, awards, and academic achievements. This year, we are delighted to award scholarships totaling $32,150 to 57 students in the CCA Class of 2014.” 2014 scholarship recipients excelled in academics, athletics, and the arts both at CCA and in the community. These talented seniors are planning majors as diverse as neuroscience, film, environmental engineering, computer science, music, industrial design, and theater. Colleges and universities they will be attending include Amherst College, Arizona State University, Bates College, Brown University, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Cal Tech, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Georgetown University, Harvard University, Long Beach State, MIT, Minerva Schools at KGI, Princeton University, Santa Clara University, Stanford University, University of Arizona, University of British Columbia, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, UCSD, University of Chicago, University of Minnesota, USC, and Williams College. Funds awarded in CCA DFS Scholarships are sent directly to the student’s college or university to offset tuition expenses. Scholarship funding came from many CCA families and alumni, the community, and generous individual donors to the DFS fundraising programs of CCA Directory, Graduation Lei sales, and Driver’s Ed. CCA families supported scholarships from the CCA Improv Club and CCA Science Olympiad. Corporate donors included Ducerus and the Price Foundation.

Jumbo Loans Are Making a Comeback Jumbo loans are not only making a comeback; they are coming back in all shapes and sizes. Since the latter part of 2013, jumbo loans have been making headlines because something quite unprecedented happened: jumbo loan interest rates started to drop below conforming loan interest rates. Traditionally jumbo loan rates have been between 0.25 and 0.5 percent higher than conforming loan rates, and during


a journey to Wonderland

the financial crisis, the rates on jumbo loans skyrocketed. So why are jumbo loan interest rates uncharacteristically low? Making jumbo loans attractive is one way banks can attract wealthier clients. Such low interest rates make refinancing the loan unnecessary; therefore, the wealthy client stays with the bank longer and gives the bank the opportunity to sell the client other products, such as financial accounts and brokerage services. Also, wealthy clients are less likely to default on a loan. To make jumbo loans even more attractive, banks have started promoting shorter repayment periods: from 10-20 years,instead of the traditional 30-year mortgage. Wealthy clients can afford the larger monthly payments of a shorter term loan and still reap the tax benefits while paying less in interest. According to AnnaMaria Andriotis of the Wall Street Journal, much of the demand for shorter

term jumbo loans is for refinancing. Thanks to the low interest rates, existing borrowers may be able to maintain a similar monthly payment over a shorter period of time. Andriotis continues to say, “the starting rate on a 30-year fixed-rate jumbo is 4.5%, while the starting rate on a 10-year jumbo is about 3.4%. Over the life of a $1.5 million mortgage, borrowers will pay more than $1.2 million in interest with a 30-year period, compared with roughly $271,000 in interest with a 10-year term.” Another jumbo loan option currently promoted by banks is the 5/5 ARM. The jumbo 5/5 ARM has a fixed rate for the first five years, after which it resets to a new interest rate for the next five years – and so on throughout the life of the loan. The 5/5 ARM might give the borrower a better chance of receiving a lower interest rate at the point of reset than if the loan

adjusted annually. Some banks are offering incentives for this program, including waiving closing costs or offering rate-reset protection, which allows borrowers to adjust the rate earlier than scheduled. With low interest rates and a variety of incentives, a jumbo loan might be a great choice for you. However, it’s important to take your time, shop around, and ask the right questions. You have to make sure the terms are right for you, the rates are competitive, and that you fully understand the cap structure options on ARM loans. If you have any questions about jumbo loans, please don’t hesitate to contact me. With over 15 years of experience in the mortgage industry and an impressive track record of 100% on time closings, I look forward to finding you a loan to meet your needs.

Cooks conjure concoctions for Literacy Council event The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Fine foodies mingled with devoted bibliophiles May 14 at NTC Promenade’s McMillin Center to celebrate the San Diego Council on Literacy’s fifth annual “Eat. Drink. Read.” event, amping up awareness of the shocking illiteracy figures in our community. It was a perfect marriage since books nourish the mind, spirit and soul, and food fuels the body and mind. Literacy Council CEO Jose Cruz told attendees 20 percent of the adult population in this country — 444,000 in San Diego County — are illiterate and des-

perately need help with reading skills. He explained that the Internet and social media, while easy to navigate, encourage the lazy use of acronyms and code words, which jettison all grammar and syntax rules. “Eat. Drink. Read.” is the foodie community’s way of saying reading is important and they can play a vital role in improving the literacy rates. Last year’s event raised enough cash so that 171,000 adults and children in San Diego received tutoring, books and instruction to hike their literary skills and improve their quality of life. Celebrated chefs, bakers, chocolatiers, caterers, vendors, vintners and craft brewers gathered to plot a gustatory adventure using a food-related book for their inspiration. • Chef Donald Lockhart from Cusp Dining and Drinks created a whimsical tea party featuring Mad Hatter finger sandwiches of burrata, Serrano ham and basil crema, along with fruity teacakes paying homage to Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” • The Marine Room’s

Executive Chef Bernard Guillas plated up an exquisite red quinoa and blue crab salad with basil sprouts and Egyptian Dukkah in honor of “The Adventures of Tintin – The Crab with the Golden Claws” by Georges Remi (Hergé). • Chef Matt Gordon from Urban Solace served smoky bacon-wrapped beets inspired by Tom Robbins’ “Jitterbug Perfume.” • Mistral’s Chef de Cuisine Adam Cho concocted a zippy yellowtail and white peach ceviche with Roald Dahl’s “James and the Giant Peach” as his motivation. •Solare Ristorante’s gnocchi sautéed with slow braised wild boar ragu with wild ramps (leeks) took a cue from Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are.” •Chef Matt Sramek, Amaya at The Grand Del Mar, offered beef short rib bourguignon, smoked bacon soubsie and trofie pasta using Julia Child as his muse with her “My Life in France.” • Specialty Produce, a supplier of exotic and mainstream fruits and veg-

“Always remember that you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world. The funny thing is, to change the world, it really is just up to us and our passions.” First conducted in 1928, the Optimist International Oratorical Contest

gives students under the age of 19 the opportunity to build their speaking skills and share their opinions. Nearly 2,000 clubs participate in the program each year. Funded by the Optimist International Foundations, more than $150,000 in college scholarships is awarded annually through the program. “It’s such a great way to get what I want to say out there to people in the world,

regardless of their age,” said Hanrui, who is also a new member of the Junior Optimist Octagon International Club at Torrey Pines. “The ability for my words to have such a profound impact on someone is amazing. I just want to keep doing that and hopefully inspire more people as I go.” For more information about the Del Mar-Solana Beach Optimist Club, visit
