Rick Schmitt, incoming superintendent of the San Dieguito Union High School District, announced June 26 that Torrey Pines High School Principal Brett Killeen is leaving the district to take a new job. Former Canyon Crest Academy Principal David Jaffe will replace Killeen as principal of Torrey Pines High School. “It is with mixed emotions that I announce that Brett Killeen will be leaving San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD) to assume the role of Assistant Superintendent of Human Relations in the Vista Unified School District,” Schmitt said in a statement. “Brett

served as the TPHS principal for seven years. He was a strong, thoughtful, intelligent and creative leader. Brett’s departure will be a loss for our district and Vista’s gain – Brett is well suited for his new role and this is a logical next step in his career and growth. “Despite the bittersweet departure of Brett, I am excited to announce that David Jaffe will return to our district to assume the helm of TPHS effective immedi-

David is well known to many in our community after serving our district as a teacher, assistant principal, founding principal of Canyon Crest Academy, and Executive Director of Curriculum & Assessment, before leading a private school for the last two years. Mr. Jaffe will be the ninth principal of TPHS since the school opened in 1974. “This is one of those rare win-win instances –

Brett gets a well-deserved new position, Vista gets a strong leader, and SDUHSD gets David back to lead TPHS. “David is a perfect match for Torrey Pines High School – not just because he is a skilled and experienced leader, but, more importantly, because he values people. Mr. Jaffe will work closely with outgoing Principal Killeen to ensure a seamless transition.”

Amid break-ins, sheriff’s office offers preventative tips for summer ■ UCSD’s ICAM students are at the forefront of new media. See page B1

BY ROB LEDONNE Home burglaries are always a concern for community residents, but in recent months a string of brazen midday robberies have left many residents on edge and wondering what to do. As a result, a variety of locally organized neighborhood watches are popping up around the area, and the county sheriff’s office is ramping up patrols and offering a variety of services to

combat crime this summer. Jackie Stockholm, a crime prevention specialist for the San Diego Sheriff’s Department in Encinitas, is fully aware of the problem. What authorities have found, she explained, is that “these are crimes of opportunity. Burglars know when you’ll be leaving for work or school,” and that’s when they take See TIPS, Page 6

Car burglaries reported in Del Mar Heights, Carmel Valley The San Diego Police Department’s Northwestern Division reported the following recent car burglaries on its Facebook site: • On Thursday, June 20, at 8 a.m., a resident on the 13600 block of Recuerdo Drive discovered that his vehicle parked inside his garage had been ransacked and small miscellaneous property had been taken from the center console and glove box. An emergency roadside kit had been taken from the vehicle’s trunk. The vehicle’s driver door had been left unlocked inside the garage. • On Friday, June 21, at 3 a.m., a resident on the 3700 Block of Ruette De Ville heard his garage door open and close. The homeowner checked on his garage and did not notice anything. He secured all doors to his home and noticed one of his vehicles’ parked outside had the cover removed and the hood propped open. Officers responded, checked the area and the car, but nothing was taken from the garage or car. The plastic covers were removed from the car battery and the center console had been ransacked. The homeowner’s other vehicle parked on the street had cash stolen from the center console. The doors of that vehicle had been left unsecured. “This is a good reminder that there are suspects looking for things to take from vehicles. Please remember to not leave anything in your vehicle. Take out the garage door openers from your vehicles at night. Lock the doors and secure the windows. Try to park in the garage or on the driveway, and make sure the area in front of your home is well lit.”

Man arrested in SB for alleged stabbing BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A 23-year-old man was jailed June 21 on suspicion of stabbing two security guards at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, authorities said. Jason Zamora stabbed the guards as they were attempting to break up a fight just before 11:30 p.m. Thursday, June 20, according to San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Clayton Lisk. Zamora was involved in the fight, which erupted at a bar inside the popular concert venue at 143 S. Cedros Ave., Lisk said. Paramedics took the injured guards to a hospital, where they were treated and released, he said. Zamora was arrested on suspicion of two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Del Mar Mesa planning board briefs BY SUZANNE EVANS • Mel Melstein, representative of District One Councilmember Sherri Lightner, told the Del Mar Mesa Community Planning Board June 13 that the city’s new budget will provide $2 million in increases for police staffing and will return branch library hours to their previous number of 48 hours per week instead of 44. • Melstein said the city approved installation of an allway stop sign at the corner of Del Vino and Rancho Toyon roads, to prevent accidents caused by people who speed through, not yielding at that intersection. The city will issue a memo for the sign’s installation. • A park planned at the eastern end of Del Mar Mesa Road will need more community parking, said Chair Gary Levitt, who recommended angled slots to accommodate more cars. Levitt emphasized the need to make the preserve’s completed trail system equally for use by Del Mar Mesa residents as well as visitors.

•N o water rate increase for customers BY JOE TASH Customers of the Santa Fe Irrigation District will not see a rate increase on their water bills next January for the first time in more than a decade under a $33.2 million budget approved by the district’s board of directors at its meeting on Thursday, June 20. The board unanimously approved the spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1. The budget includes operating expenses of $22.3 million, a 5.8 percent increase from the current year, along with $7.3 million for capital improvements such as pipeline replacements, pressure reducing stations and other projects. The budget also includes $736,000 for new equipment, $1.3 million for debt service, and $1.5 million for the capital improvement reserve fund. In order to avoid a rate increase, the district will take $1 million from a “rate stabilization” reserve fund, and maintain lower staffing levels. A staff report said the district currently has 44 employees, a 10 percent reduction from its workforce in 2009. “We’ve tightened the belt and it’s still tight,” said General Manager Mike Bardin. “We’re still in the ‘circle the wagons’ mode.” Director Greg Gruzdowich, who was elected to the board in November, said the budget shows the district is moving in the right direction, but he would like to see more emphasis on cutting operating costs, particularly employee salaries and benefits. At Thursday’s meeting, Gruzdowich handed out a chart he prepared, which he said shows the district’s salary and benefit costs grew by about 30 percent between 2008 and 2013, during a period when the board imposed rate hikes totaling 74 percent. When compounded annually, he said, the rate hikes have effectively doubled customers’ water bills See WATER, page 19

Personal experience with nuclear disaster inspires local safety activist

Cathy Iwane with her family COURTESY PHOTOS “The world needs to learn from the mistakes of Fukushima.” For 25 years, Iwane lived in Wakayama, Japan, which is 380 miles away from the Fukushima nuclear power plant. While her city wasn’t devastated from the nuclear accident, Iwane grew concerned for her family’s health when the Japanese government began burning radioactive debris in garbage incinerators around the country.

Iwane joined other concerned citizens to petition against the burning of waste in Wakayama. Although the petition was successful, Iwane said the government began burning debris in Osaka — about an hour away from Wakayama. “Although it’s low-dose, this stuff goes into the air, it gets blown around by the wind and it rains down onto the people, onto crops,” Iwane said.

Iwane began testing her family’s food with a Geiger counter, a tool that measures ionizing radiation in the atmosphere. She found high levels of contamination in fish and trace elements of contamination in milk. After discovering her younger daughter’s school lunches contained ingredients from northeastern Japan, Iwane began preparing homemade lunches. The school administrator, Iwane

said, told her not to alert the other parents of her findings. “My daughter was forced to tell her classmates that she had a food allergy,” said Iwane, who worked as an English teacher and volunteered as a PTA member at the school. “For me, that was like a stake in the heart. We’ve worked together, you trusted me, I entrusted my children to you, and now you’re telling me to suppress my research?” Iwane tested food for a year before she and her husband decided it was time to relocate their family. After the radioactive gas leak at San Onofre, Iwane decided she was going to do everything she could to prevent a nuclear disaster at her new home. “I’m just here by chance because I evacuated, and it’s an issue that’s close to my heart,” Iwane said. “I never actually did this until the meltdown, until I actually saw and met people who left Fukushima and came to my area in Japan.” San Clemente Green CoFounder Gary Headrick said Iwane’s story helped educate and inspire action from the public regarding the dangers associated with restarting the defective nuclear reactor at San Onofre.

A Geiger counter “Over here, it’s sort of this abstract thing we’ve heard about,” said Headrick, who co-founded the group with his wife, Laurie Headrick, in 2007. “When someone who has gone through it comes and tells you about it and makes it all personal … you start realizing that can happen here.” Although San Onofre is now closed, Iwane’s activist work is far from over. Safely decommissioning the plant is next on her list of priorities. “Shutting down San Onofre is so wonderful, but our work has only just begun,” Iwane said. “Let’s try to decommission this plant so that we do not end up with a nuclear waste dump.”

By KRISTINA HOUCK Del Mar resident Cathy Iwane was elated when she learned Southern California Edison would permanently shut down the San Onofre nuclear power plant. Iwane has fought the effort to restart the plant since she and her family fled Japan last year to escape the effects of the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Three days after Iwane signed a lease to a Solana Beach home, however, a small quantity of radioactive gas leaked inside one of the buildings at San Onofre. “I thought, ‘Are we going to be living like gypsies?’” recalled Iwane, who now lives with her 13-yearold daughter in Del Mar. “Rather than running away from everything, I decided to see what’s available. Little did I know there was such a strong community of activists that devoted their lives to this.” Iwane joined San Clemente Green, a grassroots group that advocated the permanent closure of San Onofre, and frequently shared her story during various city council meetings and other events. “A lot of people say a nuclear disaster would never happen here,” Iwane said.

Couple finds family they’ve always wanted through Angels Foster Family Network Loving temporary and permanent homes wanted for children in need BY KRISTINA HOUCK James Thomas has been the only father 3-year-old James and 4-year-old Aubrey have truly ever known, but Sunday, June 16, was the first Father’s Day he was recognized as their legal father. He and his wife, Kimberley Thomas, officially adopted their son and daughter in November 2012. “They will be with us forever, and we couldn’t be happier,” Thomas said. Together for 14 years and married since 2008, Thomas and his wife tried to conceive for five years. With the help of Angels Foster Family Network, a San Diegobased nonprofit, licensed foster family agency, the couple finally has the family they have always wanted. “That was a devastating loss for us [not being able to conceive] … but as we look back on it now, it seems like a beautifully-written novel,” Thomas said. “We wouldn’t change it at all.” The couple turned to Angels Foster Family Network after working with fertility specialists, and researching adoption and foster parent options. “We really just couldn’t find a connection with anything,” Thomas said. “It seemed like there was a mixup with the supply and demand. We knew there were babies out there who needed safe homes, and we had a safe home. It was just really muddled and complicated.” As a behavioral health educator, Thomas has worked with foster care children and has witnessed what he calls the “broken foster care system.” Angels Foster Family Network is different, he said. Founded in 1998, Angels Foster Family Network recruits and trains foster parents to provide care to one child or sibling set. The nonprofit has provided foster homes to more than 600 children, newborn to 5 years old. About 50 percent of the children placed have been adopted by their Angels’ families. “They have a culture of success at Angels and it’s based off of not doing things the way everybody else has done it for years and years,” Thomas said. “Angels is able to be more of a prevention than a cure by getting these babies early when they start into the system and making sure that this is either their second-to-last stop or their last stop.” After five weeks of train-

The Thomas family COURTESY PHOTO ing, Thomas and his wife welcomed their first foster child, a 22-month-old whose mother was arrested for heroin possession. The couple quickly became attached to the boy and took him to the beach, park, San Diego Zoo and SeaWorld. “We were having the time of our lives,” Thomas said. “He was wonderful.” Three weeks after welcoming the boy into their Pacific Beach home, he was reunited with his grandparents. The couple was devastated, Thomas said. “All the training that we had done was helpful and reliable, but there’s nothing that can prepare you for when you have your hopes built up that you might have a little boy forever and that dream is broken,” Thomas said. Rather than having an empty nursery, the couple decided one week later to welcome another infant, who was reunited with his grandmother after a few days. Later that same day, the couple took home a drug-dependent 14-month-old, who they helped detox. After he was reunited with his mother two months later, Thomas and his wife cared for a severely abused 3-monthold, who had a concussion, fractured skull, broken jaw and three broken ribs. Four months later, the boy, who was born while his mother was incarcerated, was reunited with his grandmother and older sister. “We had become really attached and thought that he might be with us forever, but we were happy he was going to be reunited with his sister and his grandma,” Thomas said. “It was another heartbreak, packing up his stuff and taking him there.” Devastated, the couple decided to take a break from fostering. Thomas planned a weekend trip with friends while his wife visited her family in Oklahoma. Just as he was about to leave, however, Thomas received a call from the couple’s Angels social worker. A 17-month-old

girl needed a home. “It was the first time we kind of hesitated because my wife was out of town and I was on my way out of town,” Thomas said. After an hour-long phone conversation, the couple decided to provide a home to the girl. A half-hour later, Aubrey arrived in a dirty onesie with a San Diego County social worker. “It was just me and this little girl,” Thomas said. “I called my friends and said, ‘I won’t be playing any golf this weekend. On your way out of town, if you could drop off some size three diapers and a gallon of whole milk, that would be great because my weekend just changed.’” Aubrey had been raised in a violent home. She had a bloated stomach due to malnutrition and had never slept in a crib. “She was a very, very scared and angry little girl,” Thomas said. When his wife returned that Monday, the couple met with Aubrey’s biological parents and were surprised to discover the mother was eight-and-a-half months pregnant. When the baby boy was born three weeks later, Thomas and his wife were asked to take him home from the hospital. Today, Aubrey is almost 5 years old and is starting kindergarten next month. “We have our forever family and they are absolutely amazing,” Thomas said. “We just feel forever blessed to be part of the Angels’ family. It’s been a miracle for us.” There are more than 3,500 children in San Diego County’s foster care system. Thomas encourages potential foster parents to contact Angels Foster Family Network to learn how they can provide love and care to a child who needs a home. “Keep an open mind and an open heart,” Thomas said. “It’s important that you understand what your role is. You need to let go and know that you can’t control it. Your job is just to love the baby.” For more information, visit

TIPS continued from page 1 take advantage. Stockholm explained that even though crime is an issue year-round, summertime in North County is a more vulnerable season than any other. “Whenever there’s an increase in population, you’re going to see an increase in property crimes,” Stockholm said. “Population density and property crimes have a biologic relationship. So when we have events like the fair and races, you’re going to see the same trend.” In addition, the summertime is also an exodus for many who vacation for weeks at a time, leaving their homes vulnerable. Quiet, dimly lit and empty houses on low traffic blocks are perfect targets and are most at risk. As a result, the Sheriff’s Department has set up a program that offers free home residence checks for people going away for an extended period of time. “A lot of people are surprised and very pleased when they find out about

other hallmark of a future robbery. “We warn people against doing so. If people think their home is about to be robbed, or is being surveyed, we always tell people to try to call us as soon as possible. Don’t confront or engage the person, just get as much information as possible; like their description, a model of their car, or a license plate number.” Lastly, Stockholm says that the website is also a good resource to see if your neighborhood is close in proximity to recent crimes. “You can plug in your address and see all of the incidents that have been reported.” Overall, Stockholm advises residents to be vigilant and practice common sense. Turn on alarms, make sure all doors and windows are shut and locked. Temporarily cancel deliveries when out of town. Lock all cars and don’t leave valuables inside or visible. “Some of the cases that we’re seeing is that people are leaving their house with the windows and doors unlocked,” she explained. “Even if there’s a screen, you have to at least lock your doors and windows.” To find a Vacation Check form, check out the

Residents can fill out a form, tell us when they’re going to be out of town, and give us any pertinent information like cars that should be in the driveway and if there’s an alarm system... The patrol is excellent; they’re the best resource we have. Plus, all of the information is private.” Stockholm also notes that residents can always request extra patrols “for certain neighborhoods that have an increase in criminal activity. People can call us if they see strange people during a certain time of day. Usually residents have a pretty good idea of who lives or hangs out in their neighborhood on a regular basis,” Stockholm said. “If there’s a car idling for awhile that doesn’t look right,” is just one sign a home may be being cased.

CONGRESSMAN continued from page 1 said. Himself a Democrat, Peters added that he is “very frustrated” with the leadership style of President Barack Obama, declaring him to be “the most disengaged person you could imagine.” “I am very disappointed in him,” Peters said of the president. “We could really use his engagement.” Peters narrowly defeated incumbent Republican Brian Bilbray last November to represent the 52nd District, which extends from the coast to take in much of inland North County. He is a former San Diego City Council member and port commissioner. “San Diego is the home of collaborative cooperation,” Peters said. “In Washington, it’s more hierarchical. The first thing they want to know there is ‘What school did you attend?’ and ‘What’s your title?’ ” During his first six months, Peters said he has focused on the federal budget, the economy and clean technology. San Diego, he said, is the “Silicon Valley of the military” and that the commandant of the Marine Corps is very interested in developing ways to use solar energy in the field as a replacement for petroleum. Peters has also been involved in helping veterans adjust to civilian life. Peters said there seems to be “a lot of motivation to do immigration (reform)” in Congress and to achieve some kind of tax code reform. Earlier this month Peters introduced the “Strengthening the Resiliency of Our Nation on the

Ground (STRONG) Act.” He said the act will save taxpayers money over the long run by having the federal government be more proactive, rather than reactive, in providing disaster relief funding in the wake of wildfires, hurricanes and drought. He also called on leaders in both the House and Senate to take definitive action to stop student loan interest rates from doubling on July 1. In the coming months, Peters said his office would conduct a series of local workshops designed to help businesses of all sizes prepare for the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare. His “Congress on Your Corner” town hall-style public forum will be coming to the UTC-area in July, he said. The congressman said he would launch a re-election effort early next year. However, he did have a few comments regarding his first declared Republican opponent, former City Councilman Carl DeMaio of Rancho Bernardo. “Carl is not right for the district,” Peters said. Noting DeMaio’s reluctance to compromise and his penchant to achieve political goals through ballot initiatives, Peter said, “You can’t do a national ballot initiative.” Voter registration in the 52nd District is roughly onethird Democratic, one-third Republican and one-third independent. Peters said he wants voters to disregard political labels and study the qualifications and accomplishments of candidates. “I’m not Nancy Pelosi, Donna Frye or Bob Filner. I am what I am. We need to break through the labels.”

Education Matters/Opinion

Saying goodbye to Ken Noah, and hello to an interesting lawsuit BY MARSHA SUTTON T h e saying goes that nice guys finish last. But Marsha Sutton in the case of this nice guy, retiring superintendent Ken Noah comes out on top. Noah, whose last day with the San Dieguito Union High School District is June 30, has been an ethical bellwether – not just in San Dieguito but with parents, board members and educators from surrounding districts, many of whom have looked to him for guidance and inspiration. He’s demanded high standards of behavior from adults in the system and has skillfully managed to disarm critics, even turning some former adversaries into allies. He has also inspired colleagues and supporters with his uncanny ability to traverse treacherous ground without stepping in quicksand. The public education system can be a bureaucratic nightmare with often upside-down values, a CYA mentality and human inertia that resists change with astonishing zeal. But there is another side to the depressing aspect of this equation: those people behind the scenes whose purpose in life is to support and improve public education and help children become compassionate, educated, open-minded, curious, vibrant, contributing members of society. Noah – a man of genuine integrity, honesty and commitment to student success – is one of the stars in local education who deserves recognition for never losing sight of the goal and using the highest degree of ethics as his guide. Challenging himself to always stay true to what’s best for kids has been his greatest virtue. Personnel changes are inevitable, healthy for an organization and necessary for careers. But our gut reaction when a true leader departs is sadness and frustration. You get to know these people and how they think and operate. And if we like what we see, their departure is met with trepidation and anxiety. Even though he’s retiring after only five years leading San Dieguito, Noah leaves behind a culture and legacy that feels strong and lasting. One of Noah’s biggest fans is incoming superintendent Rick Schmitt, who has

pledged to continue Noah’s commitment to the strongest ethical standards and to put kids first in every decision. Schmitt will be a stellar leader, cut from the same cloth as his predecessor, so in many ways we don’t have to say goodbye to Noah after all. Gratitude goes to Ken Noah for making the district a better place, and best wishes for many happy and fulfilling years of retirement. Getting access to your child’s tests When Schmitt takes over on July 1, one of the first challenges he will face is one of the more interesting lawsuits to come before the district in years. After being frustrated by teachers who refused to provide copies of his child’s tests, San Dieguito parent and Del Mar resident Michael Robertson filed a California Public Records Act and is suing SDUHSD to release those exams. His case is centered around the idea that if teachers allow parents to come to school, to their classroom, to review their child’s tests, then they’ve tacitly made the exams public information. “A document can only be one of two things – either it’s public and everyone in the world can see it, or it’s private and nobody can see it,” Robertson said in an interview. “There’s no halfway in between.” “The law is very clear on this,” he said. “If you take a document and you show it to the public, it’s now a public document.” Robertson makes a distinction between the exams and each student’s answers. The test questions are what he claims are public. The individual student’s scores and responses to the tests, however, should obviously not be made available to anyone other than the parents of that student, the same way confidential student records are required to be made available but only to the parents. Robertson also said a public agency such as a school district can’t have a public document and then restrict how the public can view the document. For teachers to say, “You have to look at it at this site and during these hours that are convenient to the teacher,” doesn’t cut it. “That’s not the way it works,” he said. Requestors should be allowed to view public documents however they want: either copies or in person,

he contended. “If they want a copy, they get a copy,” he said. Parents should be able to access copies of tests, he said, because time in the teacher’s classroom is often inadequate, it is inconvenient to come to school only when the teacher is available, and away from school other family members or tutors can be enlisted to help the child. Robertson is officially seeking the release of his child’s math exams, but he called this a strategic move that, if successful, will set a precedent and open the door for all exams from all coursework in the district to be made available in any form to all parents. The risk of cheating In the formal complaint filed May 14, Robertson contends that public information is being improperly withheld and parents have a right “to be involved in the education of their children and to take steps to effectively augment said education.” The complaint states that San Dieguito refused to provide him with the copies he requested, and that the district’s “obligations to the wishes of one or more teachers” prevented the district from complying. According to Mike Grove, SDUHSD’s associate superintendent of educational services, the matter is generally left up to individual teachers. He said some teachers send tests home to be reviewed and signed by parents, while others only make tests available at the school. Grove said tests sent home can be copied and distributed, which for security reasons would require teachers to create new, secure exams continually. The possibility of cheating and more work for teachers aren’t the only reasons tests are not always sent home. Often it’s because the exams are used throughout a department and shared among other teachers. “They’re not comfortable sharing an assessment that other colleagues are using,” Grove said. San Dieguito has no written policy on this issue, so Grove defines it as a practice and said it varies by department and by school. However, he said if teachers don’t release copies of tests, parents and students have the right to review any exam in a supervised school setting. “We tell teachers that

they have to make the test available to parents and students if they don’t send it home,” he said. “There’s educational value in the parents being able to see it.” Robertson said not only is there no district policy prohibiting tests from being sent home, there’s also no mention of the matter in the teachers’ collective bargaining agreement. In fact, Robertson interprets the teachers’ contract as giving the district the right to set education policy on this issue. He references Article 14 of the San Dieguito Faculty Association, which gives the district the right to: •Determine the kinds and levels of services to be provided, and the methods and means of providing them. •Establish its educational policies, goals and objectives. •Ensure the rights and educational opportunities of students. California Education Code, section 49069-49072, would seem to bolster Robertson’s case. It reads in part: “Parents of currently enrolled or former pupils have an absolute right to access to any and all pupil records related to their children that are maintained by school districts or private schools.” But, to Grove’s point, there is also this: “Each school district shall adopt procedures for the granting of requests by parents for copies of all pupil records pursuant to Section 49065, or to inspect and review records during regular school hours.” “We do our absolute best to make [tests] available to parents and to be flexible,” Grove said. Disclosure not required No one at the district would speak directly about the case, referring all inquiries to attorney Dan Shinoff, of Stutz Artiano Shinoff & Holtz. In response to the complaint, Shinoff filed a demurrer June 17 on behalf of San Dieguito that states in part that the California Public Records Act “has a specific express exemption for ‘academic exams’ and related materials.” Government Code section 6254 reads in part that disclosure is not required of “test questions, scoring keys, and other examination data used to administer a licensing examination, examination for employment, or academic examination …” “Academic examina-

tions fall squarely within the exemptions of the CPRA,” the response reads. A demurrer is a written response to a complaint filed in a lawsuit which objects to or challenges a pleading filed by an opposing party, and it asks for dismissal. SDUHSD’s demurrer states that it “is not required to provide academic exams, test questions, scoring keys, or other examination data. This makes sense because academic records, including exams, are private in nature. … Mr. Robertson has requested copies of 10 of his son’s ‘math tests’ as well as the work performed in relation to each test. Such material is expressly exempt under the CPRA.” The district’s response does state, however, that “parents should have access to their own students’ work in schools, including exams” and that the district provided

Torrey Pines grad and mom publishes first children’s book BY KAREN BILLING A busy local mother of three children ages newborn through 4 was able to carve out enough pockets of free time to finish her first children’s book. Allison Gharst, a Torrey Pines High School graduate, published “Monochromatic Dan” two weeks ago, a book she wrote and illustrated that teaches lessons of friendship and being accepting of others’ differences. “It was very exciting,” said Gharst. “I really wanted to have this for my kids, they don’t get to see my artsy side very much.” The title character of the book, Monochromatic Dan, is a shy little boy who only wears different shades of brown — he even only likes brown foods such as peanut butter, refried beans, meatloaf and brown “cookies by the bunch.” Dan makes a new friend named Luminous Lil’ (named after Gharst’s daughter) who introduces him to color and changes his social outlook. Gharst said the book provides a lesson to kids on finding their own voice and having the confidence to believe in it, no matter the color. Gharst has three daughters, Lillian (“Lilly”), Charlotte (“Charlee”) and Adelaide. She worked as a teacher before she starting having kids, working as a substitute teacher at her alma mater R. Roger Rowe School and then teaching art at Maranatha Christian School until 2008.

‘Monochromatic Dan’ “I’d always thought writing a book would be fun but the idea really came to me in 2008,” Gharst said. She and her family were meeting her in-laws for lunch at Balboa Park when her father-in-law came strolling up in an all-brown ensemble, complete with a brown safari hat. As a joke, she called him “Monochromatic Tom.” “I liked the way that sounded and I started writing a story in my head,” Gharst said. During a family road trip to Colorado, she had a lot of time sitting in the car and started putting her story idea on paper. She was able to write the whole book in the car. Finding time to complete the illustrations was difficult. Gharst painted the illustrated pages and had to set aside time on her calendar to sit down and work on it. Gharst published the book through Amazon’s Cre-

ateSpace and it was a long process of submitting the story and illustrations, picking letterings and critiquing samples until the finished product was just right. “It was really exciting finishing it and for my girls to see it finished,” Gharst said. While it took four years to get the first book done, Gharst said there may be more books in her future. Especially as her kids get older and notice Lilly’s name is in the book and a character is named after Charlee too, but Adelaide wasn’t born yet to get a mention. Gharst said reading the book, her daughter Lilly already asks, “Where’s Addy?” “There probably has to be another book, they just might be 20 by the time I finish it!” Gharst said. “Monchromatic Dan” is available on and at any national bookstore web site.

Scripps surgeon first in San Diego to perform single-site robotic hysterectomy Scripps Memorial Hospital - La Jolla recently became the first hospital in San Diego and one of the first in the country to perform a hysterectomy using single site robotic technology. Mel Kurtulus, M.D., a La Jolla gynecologist and surgeon, led the surgical team that performed the hysterectomy performed from a 1-inch incision at the belly button. The single site technology allows the procedure to be performed using a single incision virtually hidden in the patient’s navel. Recently approved by

Mel Kurtulus, M.D. FDA, this revolutionary surgery not only offers the benefits of robotic surgery such as less scarring, less bleeding, less pain, fast recovery and a shorter hospital stay than with conventional laparoscopic surgeries but it is also a virtually scarless sur-

gery performed just from a small incision hidden in the belly button. “With the addition of single site surgery, Scripps Memorial continues to lead in the evolution of surgical technologies.” says Kurtulus. “We’re thrilled to be the first to offer our patients the most technically advanced surgical options available to address women’s health issues.” For more information on Scripps Memorial’s minimally invasive surgery programs, go to: http:// surgery__minimally-invasive-robotic-surgery__gynecologic-surgery

Patriot Profiles: ‘It’s not how well you outperform people — it’s how you work as a team’ BY JEANNE MCKINNEY A Navy corpsman is an essential key to deep sea rescue operations. When a distress call comes a medical team reports to Undersea Rescue Command, and Command has 72 hours to get trained personnel and equipment to the sunken submarine site. Over the years, American and international sailors were tragically lost due to a lack of effective methods and technologies to remove survivors. The United States Navy’s next generation Submarine Rescue Diving Recompression System (SRDRS) leads the world in the ability to safely extract crews of disabled and trapped submarines running out of time on ocean floors. Petty Officer First Class Sunshine Padilla is a hospital corpsman attached to Undersea Rescue Command (URC) stationed at Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego. She’s a member of a triage team, whose main job is to make sure patient transport from the rescue module to the surface ship is “good to go.” Padilla describes triage as helping to sort and categorize the types of injuries, which result from burns, trauma from impact, near drowning, or the dreaded Decompression Sickness (DCS), when lifethreatening nitrogen bubbles form in the blood or body tissues. The first SRDRS phase delivers to the disabled sub

an Atmospheric Dive System (ADS 2000). This manned one-atmosphere dive suit that can be lowered 2000 feet to inspect damage and clear escape hatches. The second phase deploys the Submarine Rescue System-Rescue Capable System (SRS-RCS), which is a tethered and remotely-operated two-manned module launched from the forward deck of the ship. It rescues up to 16 sailors at a time. Padilla states, “We mate this pressurized module to the submarine, try to get equal pressurization and get everyone out.” Depth of sub impact determines how many hours before survivors can surface. Padilla explains, “The deeper you get, the more air expands in the lungs. You don’t want to go up too fast or they can burst.” Gradual ascent is calculated by a dive table so air bubbles can equalize. Padilla and her medical team step up once the remote module reaches the rescue ship. “I look through the incoming patients or ask the person assisting the patients ‘what are the symptoms?’” If Padilla sees any obvi-

ous signs of distress she relates that to her provider, the Dive Medical Officer who is an ENT surgeon. She must also be “watchdog” to make sure no further injuries occur. The third and final phase will use the Transfer Under Pressure System (TUPS) to be delivered to the Navy in November 2013. TUPS will allow sailors rescued from pressurized subs to remain under pressure during transfer to hyperbaric treatment chambers on board the support ship. “They haven’t given me a job description for this, but I know when it comes in we’re going to do man-training,” she adds grinning, “I’m going to be the test dummy.” The diversity of undersea rescue is very challenging to someone who did not come from a diving background. “I’ve always been on shore commands where it involves a hospital. My background as a general corpsman was mainly emergency room – nasal gastric (NG) tube placements, trauma stuff from sutures to immediate patient action. Now, I have to deal with the dive community, the sub community, and private contractors.” Sunshine was named by her mother for the first thing she saw after her birth. Her parents migrated to Ingleside, Calif., over 30 years ago and still live Phil-

ippine cultural ideals that everyone is family. “I didn‘t want to be a Filipino who stays at home until married. I wanted to travel — get away and be independent,” Padilla said. That independence shines a light on a culture that takes pride in their sons and daughters entering the medical field. HM1 Padilla brought her sunny disposition and work disciplines to Undersea Rescue Command, winning “Sailor of the Year” in 2012. Her humble version of how she got there is, “I just do what I’m told. I like doing community service — command involvement. I don’t really whine or complain. I’m thankful they’ve acknowledged that.” Her Navy Achievement Medal (NAM) was based on knowledge, skill, effort, performance, oral presentation, military bearing, and performance. Excellence in these categories is often times hard-won. She remembers being freaked out as a newly trained E3 serving in Kuwait. A mass casualty incident rousted her out of bed at 3 a.m. “I didn’t know what to do”, she says. When the 13 patients from the U.S Carl Vinson came through, that’s when everything the Navy taught her bloomed. “The fun,” as she tags it, “went on for about six hours until we got everyone stabilized and triaged.” Serving with the Marines is a future goal, as Navy Corpsmen attend to their medical needs. The closest field trauma she’s encountered is taking a Combat Casualty Care (Triple-C) course. “It made me hyped up. I wanted hands-on everything.” She knows the risks, “I can’t let fear get to me.” Padilla’s hardest test was working with detainees at GITMO, a classified subject, but offers, “You have to apply more psychology.” Her greatest accomplishment was leading 35 junior sailors in her old command,

There hasn’t been a major submarine disaster since August 2000, when the Russian K-141 Kursk sank in the Barents Sea. All 118 sailors on board died. For now, Padilla hones her life-saving skills in training events such as Bold Monarch — an international submarine rescue exercise held in Spain. Everybody was there – the French, Spanish, Canadian and, for the first time in history, the Russians joined in. “We mated with different subs and pretended patients were in distress that needed medical attention.” A playful 3-year-old daughter loves to go to grandma’s when Padilla has to go to work. HMI Padilla tells her, “I’m going to be a hero today, so when I come back, I’ll be a mom again.” Her daughter replies, “OK, I want to be Dora today.” For that anxious sailor trapped thousands of feet underwater, he wants to be a survivor that day. When he steps out of the rescue module, a ray of ‘Sunshine’ will be waiting, offering her welcoming hand.

MAYOR’S VIEW I was at lunch the other day with a friend who asked me how the City was doing. I described a number of areas w h e r e the City is making progTERRY ress. His SINNOTT response was “I Del Mar Mayor didn’t know all that was going on.” So maybe it would be good to share some significant steps we are taking that may not be so visible to your readers. Fairgrounds Governance Thanks to the hard work of Don Mosier and Lee Haydu, we have been able to communicate to our County and State elected officials our desire to have Del Mar, Solana Beach and San Diego represented in the new Joint Powers Authority being formed by the 22nd DAA and the County. Supervisor Ron Roberts and DAA President Adam Day have proposed a JPA made up of nine members of the DAA Board and five County Supervisors, leaving out any representation from the cities that surround the Fairgrounds. Whether Supervisor Ron Roberts and Adam Day will ultimately agree to have local representation on this new governance body is still uncertain. But we have made the point that the quality of decisions regarding Fairgrounds operations will be much improved if the perspectives of the surrounding communities are considered. And isn’t that what this proposal should be; better governance and regional oversight? If Del Mar and the other two cities are not allowed to participate, all that will have been accomplished is the establishment of a new entity that permits 22nd DAA employees to receive higher

pay and benefits. That is not better governance. A Balanced Budget In May, the City Council reviewed and adopted the proposed City Budget for 2013-14, and 2014-15. The budget for 2013-14 is planned to be $19 million, and for 2014-15, $19.3 million. This compares to the budget of 2012-2013 of $19.9 million. Our General Fund Contingency Reserves remain over 10 percent at 19.5 percent and 24.9 percent for each of the two years. Pension Liabilities All cities in California have been impacted by the recession. Most cities are facing a situation where their pension benefits promised to employees are more than the asset values of the CalPERs investment pool. Del Mar is no exception. We have an estimated $9 million unfunded pension liability that needs to be funded. Thanks to the hard work of Jim Eckmann, Tom McGreal, and members of the Finance Committee, we are developing a strategy to correct the problem over the next several years. This year we are taking the first step by paying off a $3 million Side Fund obligation that has cost the City interest payments of 7.5 percent annually. Our next step is to set aside roughly $220,000 per year as a local savings account to offset and gradually eliminate our unfunded pension liabilities. How to save that amount is a question the City Council will be discussing in the weeks ahead. Long-term Forecast It is difficult to predict the future. But for the first time, Scott Huth and his staff have put together a 30year forecast to project the City’s revenues and expenditures. This allows for better decisions when it comes to determining how the community can pay for needed improvements. Business Support Advisory Committee Our Council has had concerns for the economic

health of the downtown. The Del Mar Village Association is very active promoting the downtown. We have a three-year-old Tourism Business Investment District that uses a 1 percent fee on hotel rates to market the hotels in Del Mar. But that effort has grown slowly. To make sure that City government is not an obstacle for businesses to locate and grow in our downtown, the Council established a Business Support Advisory Committee, made up of business owners, to recommend ways city processes and regulations could be improved. Councilmembers Al Corti and Sherryl Parks were instrumental in getting this done. Public Safety A big issue we have been addressing is the increasing costs and level of service of our contract with the Sheriff. How can we control costs and provide a higher level of police service to our residents? Under the leadership of Jim Benedict and Barry Entous, the Finance Committee has been looking at options the city has in providing police services. The City has hired an outside consultant to review our options and provide recommendations to the City Manager and Council. New Projects We are moving forward on some important projects in the coming year. We hope to develop a facilities plan which documents our longterm needs for office space. This will include options for how to achieve our goal for a new City Hall. The development of a Shores Park master plan will begin. Efforts will continue to put in more sidewalks to improve pedestrian flow. And we will see a milestone completion of the Torrey Pines Bridge seismic retrofit. These are my list of significant activities. Be sure to contact the other members of the City Council for their perspectives. Terry Sinnott Del Mar

One Paseo: Take a hint from L.A. project

Esteemed Del Mar educator honored for work •I mplementing ‘Lamborghini Model’ creates lasting legacy This week the Del Mar schools community, teachers, parents and students will gather to celebrate the life and accomplishments of Janet Lamborghini. Janet served 16 years, longer than most elected officials, from 1992-2008 where she helped guide the expansion of our district to its current eight schools. As her obituary stated, she “was a vigorous advocate for all students, and worked hard to maintain excellence in education during a challenging period of rapid growth.” In addition to this leadership, Janet always maintained a hands-on approach working on behalf of individual students at my own children’s school, Del Mar Heights. She tutored and taught math to fifth and sixth graders and served as a coach for geography and math Olympiad. This work continued at the Heights even after she stepped off the Board of Trustees in 2008. She also served as The Dollars for Scholars treasurer at Torrey Pines High School. At her last meeting in the fall of 2008, Janet reflected on her career and stated that a remaining goal to be accomplished was the combining of the Del Mar Hills and Del Mar Heights into a more collaborative model. Since these two schools share a common attendance boundary, she reflected that some sort of merging (pre-k to second grade at one site, with 3rd to 6th grade at the other) would better maximize district resources and could allow for more expansive programs and innovations. I happen to agree with Janet so at our next DMUSD Board of Trustees meeting I plan to request that the superintendent and board appoint a committee to study the possibility of the “Lamborghini model.” Such collaboration could free up space and district resources to allow for an expanded ESC type academy, a language program or even a STEM-type magnet program at these schools. Janet’s commitment to learning excellence and willingness to innovate should be the guiding force as we explore the “Lamborghini Model.” Doug Perkins Doug Perkins is a local small business owner and a member of the Del Mar Union School District Board of Trustees.

Allowing lease of property will help revitalize Del Mar I read the following speech to the City Council on June 17, 2013, pursuant to agenda Item #6: The Staff Report says the “pilot program ended on April 14, 2012 and you’ve been working with Crepes & Corks for the last 14 months to help satisfy their parking requirements.” Crepes & Corks opened their restaurant by funding $500 with the DMVA’s valet parking program . . . and I funded $42,000 with the same DMVA program, but that wasn’t good enough. I signed a contract with Pacific Coast Valet in 2012, and sent a copy to the Planning Director and the City Manager . . . and the City simply ignored it. When Prep Kitchen was shut down for a year because of the fire, they asked the City if they could move upstairs to Suite 200 during re-construction. The Planning Director denied this request and Prep Kitchen laid off 30 employees. You might be working with Crepes & Corks, and all these other under-parked properties in town . . . but you’re fighting me . . . because you want to convert my parking garage to a public parking lot. And that’s a published fact: The City’s 2009 Parcel Survey stated that the parking garage at 1201 Camino del Mar should be “shared parking for the entire block.” The City’s Village Specific Plan required: “existing development to open private parking to the public . . . in return for reduced parking standards” The Planning Director conducted 100 meetings with Del Mar residents . . . and told them that my parking was under-utilized, and therefore should become public parking . . . But she didn’t tell them that my 41 spaces were mostly

In the Los Angeles Times of June 26, under the headline “West L.A. project shrinks,” (page AA), we read, “Real estate developer Casden West L.A. has agreed to chop down the size of its hotly contested commercial and residential project on the Westside...The reworked project...will have just 15,000 square feet of commercial space, instead of the previously proposed 160,000...” Let’s hope the folks at Kilroy read their hometown paper and take the hint.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Monsters at the beach BY GORDON CLANTON On a recent visit to the Torrey Pines State Beach, I came upon the sights and sounds of a major reshaping of the natural world. Two enormous bright yellow Komatsu excavators, as tall as Tyrannosaurus rex, with articulated booms and tank-like treads, scoop sand from the mouth of Los Penasquitos Lagoon and from the tidal basin east of the bridge. The wet sand is dropped into three huge bright yellow Caterpillar dump trucks, each with six wheels six feet in diameter. The trucks, belching diesel smoke, roar south along the beach, now cordoned off from public use. They dump the sand, some near the high tide line, some into the edge of the surf. A bright yellow bulldozer, beeping loudly when it backs up, rakes and smooths the new sand. The sand replenishment is a side benefit. The main purpose of this activity is to re-open the lagoon mouth to the ocean. Although a new highway bridge built

LAWSUIT continued from page 7 Robertson access to inspect the math test materials he seeks but he “apparently is not satisfied with this access.” Accordingly, the demurrer summarizes, “there is no legal requirement under the CPRA for the district to provide Mr. Robertson with copies of these tests. Mr. Robertson is not entitled to relief under the CPRA, and the court should therefore sustain San Dieguito’s demurrer.” Robertson countered this position by claiming that a waiver is in effect after meeting with his child’s teacher at the school to review a math test. “Once you show a document to a member of the public, you’ve waived all exemptions,” he said. Robertson and many other involved parents want to review how their kids are doing more specifically, not just get the grades. And one way is to examine tests and quizzes with your child sitting next to you, without time pressures or adjusting work schedules to teacher appointment times. Robertson said existing

in 2005 greatly e n hanced the tidal flow, the outlet still becomes clogged. The health of the lagoon depends on the natural flushing action of the tides. When the lagoon mouth becomes silted in, the regular influx of seawater is blocked and the lagoon becomes stagnant and stinky. Mosquitoes breed here, then drift uphill. Meanwhile the lagoon continues to be fed by fresh water, including the increased runoff from decades of paving and home construction in Del Mar Heights and Del Mar Terrace and the “urban drool” that trickles down from adjacent bluffs because of the continuous irrigation of a thousand bright green lawns. As the lagoon fills with fresh water, the marsh becomes inhospitable to certain species of birds, fish, and plants that depend on

practice, which he called teacher-centered and not student-centered, supports adults in the system rather than children, and restricts the ability of parents to stay involved and provide academic support for their kids. “It’s about what’s best for the teachers and not what’s best for the children,” he said. Even Shinoff seemed intrigued by the case. “It’s a very interesting issue,” he said. We’ll see how this one plays out. Jaffe returns Lastly, and perhaps most relevant, is the news that David Jaffe is returning to San Dieguito to take the reins at Torrey Pines High School. For those who don’t remember Jaffe from his years as founding principal of Canyon Crest Academy, his two-year absence has been sorely missed. And for those students who didn’t get into Canyon Crest from the waitlist and are attending Torrey this fall as your second choice, you are in for a real treat.

tidal flushing. As the water in the lagoon becomes less salty, a fresh-water mosquito (Culex tarsalis) moves into the area — the mosquito known to carry the West Nile virus. WNV first appeared in the United States in 1999 and spread across the country from East to West. Infection can sometimes, although very rarely, be fatal for humans — one death in California (Sacramento) in 2013. After mostly being open in recent years, the lagoon mouth closed in March. The slough was reopened in May but again became blocked with sand. The current activity is scheduled to last eight days and will cost the City of San Diego an estimated $100,000. Gordon Clanton teaches sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at

WATER continued from page 2 over that six-year period. “My concern is salaries and benefits per FTE (fulltime employee) have been rising while we’ve been raising rates dramatically,” Gruzdowich said. While district officials have said that the rising cost of water from the district’s suppliers has fueled recent rate increases, Gruzdowich said his analysis showed that rising water costs have only added about 25 percent to the district’s wholesale water costs. The district can’t keep taking money from reserves, and should instead seek to pare back expenses wherever possible, he said. “I’d like philosophically to look at everything we’re doing and make sure it’s worth doing,” he said. Bardin said the district has done everything it could to keep expenses in check and rates down. A new labor agreement with employees gradually reduces the district’s contribution to employee pensions, and created a new tier of lower retirement benefits for new hires. However, the district’s personnel costs under the new budget increased by 1.5 percent to $6.1 million. Rate increases from the San Diego County Water

Beware of heat’s impact on pets: Store owner, bystander, Vons employees rescue old dog at Carmel Valley shopping center BY SUZANNE EVANS It was a scorching, hot summer day. A huge, old dog, Irish Setter mix, with thick, graying fur and muzzle, was stretched out on the hot pavement next to a bench, in front of the Vons grocery store in the Piazza Carmel shopping center. He was without a leash, panting, his eyes closed. Jenny Kim, owner, with her husband Sun Kim, of Pets & Fish, next to Vons, was struggling with an over160 lb. dog, but he would not budge. I walked by, thought his look was ominous, and asked the petite woman if I could help. She said “Yes,” adding the dog had been there for some time. Kim attached a bright pink leash from her store, trying to coax him to shade. His fragile appearance was alarming, and he had no energy to lift his head. Fearing heatstroke, I rushed to get help from Vons employees. Two men dropped everyAuthority, the district’s wholesale supplier, will cost the district 2.2 percent more for buying “imported” water in 2014, according to a staff report. The district projects it will need to buy more imported water in the coming year because a dry winter has reduced the availability of less expensive water from local reservoirs. Director John Ingalls said money generated by rate increases has been used to maintain and improve the district’s network of pipes and pumping stations. “We’re spending the money on construction,” Ingalls said. Along with the $7.3 million planned for capital projects next year, the district spent about $1.5 million this year, and $7.2 million the year before, according to budget documents. After a discussion of the budget in May, district officials removed a planned expenditure of $360,000 for a financial software upgrade. Ingalls objected to the expense, because he said the district should work with neighboring water districts on a shared system, an approach that might make it easier to consolidate functions in the future. The district has raised its rates annually since 2004, according to Jeanne Deaver,

thing, ran outside with me, and carried the heavy dog underneath a table, into the shade. They lifted up the heavy umbrella pole, sliding the pink leash around it. Kim had tried calling for nearly an hour the dog’s owner using the ID phone number on the tag, but got no answer. Realizing they were part of a dog rescue saga, The California Cuts salon, where I had an appointment, generously let me race back and forth to check on the dog. Another 20 minutes passed, but the dog had barely budged, although he managed to slide his tongue into a dish of water. Inside Pets & Fish, I dialed the police, who said they would contact animal control. A half-hour later the dog was still limp beneath the umbrella. Luckily, Kim said the dog’s owner was on her way. I returned home, the phone rang and Kim told me the owner claimed the

administrative services manager. No rate increases were imposed from 1997 to 2003. After that, rates went up each year from a minimum of 6 percent to a maximum of 20 percent, including a 6 percent increase that took effect Jan. 1. If the district did seek a rate increase for 2014, it would have to notify customers and hold a public hearing under state law before the increase could be imposed, Deaver said. The district serves 22,000 customers in Rancho Santa Fe, Solana Beach and Fairbanks Ranch.

dog. Kim said the woman’s gardener had left the gate open. The heavy old dog wandered more than two blocks in the hot sun to Vons. Tips: Hot Weather Hazards for Dogs — San Diego County News Center “Animals can be very sensitive to high heat,” said Director of Animal Services Dawn Danielson. “Make sure your pets have plenty of fresh cool water and shade; and cut down or stop any exercise for your dogs when it is hot.” DAS offers eight tips to help your pets: •Keep your pets indoors if the temperature is lower inside; •Keep your pets’ water supply in a tip-proof container, always topped off, and be sure it stays cool (pets will not drink water that is too hot); •Consider a misting system to keep the outdoor areas cooler; •Be sure your pet has shade ALL DAY. Remember, the sun’s position changes during the day; •Do not take your pets for car trips unless absolutely necessary. A car can heat up very quickly. On an 85-degree day, a car can reach 102 degrees in 10 minutes and soar upward to 120 degrees — even with the windows down an inch or two; •If you exercise with your dog, do so only in the very early morning when the temperature is lower. However, it may be better to leave your dog at home. •Don’t take your dogs for walks on the hot pavement. If it is too hot for you to walk barefooted then don’t make your dogs do it either.

vacant because I’m not allowed to lease my property. Withholding permits in an attempt to coerce me to convert my property to a public parking lot is wrong. Withholding permits from the best-parked building in town, while you enrich all these other under-parked properties is wrong. Del Mar’s downtown is mostly run-down, under-parked buildings because permits have been based on politics instead of planning. This has been going on four-and-a-half years, and I’m losing $15,000 per month rent. But Del Mar is losing a lot more. If you can’t figure out how to allow me to lease my property, you will never be able to revitalize this town. George Conkwright

North Shore 8U All-Stars win District Championship The North Shore Girls Softball 8U All-Star team clinched the North San Diego District Softball Championship in dramatic fashion on June 23 after a 7-inning game that was decided in an international tie-breaker over Rancho Bernardo. With North Shore down by one run in the bottom of the 7th inning, Ashley Alarcon

hammered a ground ball into the right field gap, driving in Claire Sefkow to tie the game. With two outs, first year player Sarah Hathorn ripped a walk-off single to drive home Alarcon, who slid into home plate narrowly beating the throw to end the game 6-5. Team Manager Andy Sefkow credited the

They played their hearts out to win this championship. Not only are these girls tremendous hitters and fielders, but great teammates as well,” he said. Katie Rechs drove in a run in the 1st to tie the game 1-1. North Shore took a 3-1 lead in the 2nd inning after the first of two doubles by Andie Gately, and RBI singles by first-time allstars Sarah Hathorn and Anna Nichols. The team lost the lead in the top of the 6th inning, but tied the game 4-4 on a two-

strike, two-out RBI single by Claire Sefkow that scored Kyra Chan from 2nd base, sending the game to extra innings. Rancho Bernardo retook the lead 5-4 in the top of the 7th inning after 2 bunts. But Kyra Chan, who pitched the entire game (13 Ks), struck out three players at the top of RB’s batting order to get her team back to the plate. The ensuing two runs for North Shore clinched the District Championship. The win represents the first District Championship for the North Shore Girls Softball League in the 8U division.

Del Mar residents row to Nationals

Under near perfect rowing conditions, and in a photo-finish race, four junior rowers from the San Diego Rowing Club burst onto the national rowing scene. Spectators were thrilled as they battled it out with three other well-known crews at the U.S. Rowing Youth National Championships held on Melton Hill Lake in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. In the six-boat final, the women’s quad made up of Christine Buckley, Lexie Tatro, Marissa Gibson and Mariko Kelly, charged down the racecourse for 2000 meters with commanding strength and synchronicity. They crossed the finish line in 7:04.48, missing 3rd place and a medal by 1/100th of a second — a blink of an eye. The event brought together 153 rowing clubs and schools from 30 states with the hopes of being crowned national champions in 18 different boat classes. Earlier in May, the San Diego quad placed second at the Southwest Regionals in Sacramento to earn an invitation to Nationals. Much of the crew’s success is credited to their talented and decorated coach, Susan Francia, a two-time Olympic gold medalist from the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Games. Despite her accolades, she is quick to mention that, “the girls did all of the hard work.” “I am incredibly proud of the girls and how much they have improved this year,” claimed Francia. “It was a heartbreaking race, being on the wrong side of a photo finish, but I know it will fuel the fire for next year. I think we learn from our losses, especially close races, more than our wins. In the end they will be tougher athletes and stronger people.” “It was the race of a lifetime,” said bow seat Mariko Kelly. “We are never going to live

She placed 11th overall in an incredibly competitive and talent field of single rowers — one that even intimidated Coach Francia. “The women’s single has proven to be insanely competitive. I’m not even sure I would want to race these girls!” In addition to gaining valuable racing experience, the girls had a real life look at living and training the life of an Olympic champion. Not only did Francia share her winning strategies and mental racing insight with them, she travelled, drove, cooked, chaperoned

Another summer of great music comes to DM through fair, horse racing BY ROB LEDONNE Current chart-toppers, yesterday’s favorites, and everyone in between will be descending on Del Mar these next few weeks and months thank to a summer music lineup that seems to get stronger every year. Throughout the year, residents mostly rely on the Belly Up for their live music needs, but with the San Diego County Fair to the new season of the Del Mar Racetrack, the North County music scene gets a large boost every summer season. “We’ve always been striving to get the best caliber entertainers we possibly can,” said Linda Zweig, the head of media relations for the County Fair. “Historically across the board, we’ve had huge names on our grandstand stage and we’re just trying to carry on that tradition.” Zweig isn’t kidding; since the fair’s inception in 1936, it’s had a steady drumbeat of the day’s hottest acts. Looking at a complete list on the fair’s official website, names such as The Temptations (1978), Johnny Cash (1988), and Bruno Mars (2012) pepper the list. This year is no exception; some of the highest charting and most buzzed-about artists will be appearing at the fair this year, right alongside stars from yesteryear. That’s all part of the plan, said Zweig: “While trying to be

ting quite a bit of radio airplay,” said Bahr. “When they played last time, they were a real high-energy group and we definitely wanted to bring them back a second time. They fit our lineup really well.” Also performing are San Diego-staples Pinback (Aug. 9) and Weezer (Aug. 27). In addition, indie darlings the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s are also slated to perform in support of their new album Mosquito, which was released by Interscope Records this past April. Bahr says because of all the booking that goes on in North County every summer, the track has “a close relationship with the San Diego Fair and the Belly Up. We all talk about who’s going to have who.” These discussions result in a full summer of music with exThe crowds swell during a 2012 performance by Ziggy Mar- treme variety — and no double-booking. ley, who is slated to perform again this year in Del Mar at Reggae Fest on Aug. 31.

family friendly, we want to appeal to every demographic, every age.” Train, perhaps best known for one of the biggest songs of 2009, “Hey Soul Sister” and on the charts today with the smash hit “50 Ways to Say Goodbye,” will be appearing at the fair on June 27; the next day Kendrick Lamar, an R&B darling known for the hit track “Swimming Pools” and a collaboration with Jay Z will be at the fair June 28. Both shows will be a part of the Toyoto Simmer Concert Series at the Grandstand Stage, which began with the Beach Boys on June 8. After the fair wraps up, the Del Mar Racetrack will begin another season of weekend concerts; this year’s roster includes the same number and variety of chart-topping acts as well. Chris Bahr, the director of events and promotions for the track, says it’s sometimes tricky to book a consistent slate of quality acts. “It’s always a bit of a challenge when booking. We only have these bands on Fridays or Saturdays, so they have to be available then and on the West Coast. This year, I think we have one of our best lineups.” That lineup includes bands such as Fitz and the Tantrums (July 26), whose single “Out of my League” has been a recent indie hit. “Fitz and the Tantrums have been get-

The pre-race togetherness strengthened the already deep bond and mutual respect the girls have developed with their coach. Now the team will have the chance to cheer for Francia, as she quickly changes gears from her role as coach to that of athlete. She will carry the spirit of the girls into her own selection and training with the US team. Francia hopes to race the quad at the World Cup in Switzerland and World Championships in Korea in August. “My girls will be my

As for Zeig, she explained she’s been attending the fair since she was a kid and relishes the music acts every year. “There have been so many favorite performances over the years. I have a soft spot for Chubby Checker who was here in 2005; he was such a pleasure. It was also thrilling to meet Mel Torme back in the 1980s because he has such a long history.” As for who Zeig is looking forward to this year, she points out Adam Lambert (July 2) is both a public and staff favorite. “For some reason,” she mused, “I’ve been getting a lot of requests to see Adam by older women...” For more information on upcoming concertsm visit (concerts and entertainment category) and www.dmtc. com (season info category).

The team is already looking to regroup in the fall to improve on the fourth place performance. Despite the loss of team captain and stroke seat Buckley, who will attend UCLA on a rowing scholarship, the team looks to be even stronger next year. Meanwhile, the four returning rowers, Tatro (Torrey Pines High School), Gibson (La Jolla High School), Kelly (La Jolla Country Day), and Hooton (Bishop’s), will not be taking the summer off. This select group of rowers has been invited to U.S. Junior Women’s National Team Selection Camp with the hope of representing the United States at the Junior World Championships

in Trakai, Lithuania. Head Coach of San Diego Rowing Club, Chris Callaghan, is extremely proud of the growth and success of the junior team and club. “Both our girls and boys have taken their rowing to the next level and they are racing harder than they have ever before.” San Diego Rowing Club is located in Mission Bay and hopes to build on this recent success and to introduce others to the beauty and joy of the sport of rowing.

CCA student named ICAM 2013: Where new media is being born ‘Swimmer of the Year’ UCSD senior thesis projects show visions for future of electronica, more Palomar League recognizes Garrett Schmid BY GIDEON RUBIN Garrett Schmid first took up swimming a few years back as a way to boost his strength and stamina for competitive soccer. He immediately

Coach Michael Galindo and Garrett Schmid

took a liking to the pool. “I’ve always loved the beach so I was a fairly good swimmer and it was fun,” Schmid said. These days, Schmid no longer competes on dry land. Just three years removed from the local rec. soccer circuit, Schmid has come out of nowhere to emerge as one of the area’s most dominant prep swimmers. Schmid, who will be a Canyon Crest Academy junior later this year, is coming off a breakout year. He was named the Palomar League’s Swimmer of the Year — an honor typically reserved for upperclassmen — after winning league championships in two events. Schmid clocked a 1:57.05 to win the 200-meter individual medley and won the 100 backstroke in 53:28. He was an All Palomar League First Team selection and named CCA’s Most Valuable Swimmer. He was also named to the Palomar League’s All Academic Team. “I really liked improving,” Schmid said of transitioning to competitive swimming. “I got better and better and seeing my results was pretty fun. I enjoyed it and I’ve been swimming ever since.” Schmid’s first breakthrough came in at a novice-level USA Swim-sanctioned meet. Competing in the “C” group, Schmid won two of the three events he swam just a year out from his first lessons. Schmid was hooked right away. “It was the slowest (group) but I didn’t really know it at the time and I won a lot of events so it was really fun,” he said. “After that I realized I’m a good enough swimmer to swim year-round. Just that one meet brought everything together.” Schmid, who has a 4.0 GPA, receives high marks for coachability, work ethic, and commitment to balancing swimming and academics from his Pacific Athletic Club coach, Michael Galindo. “Its’ pretty rare that we get swimmers at that age who are able to be open-minded to different

BY WILL BOWEN Let’s Review! It’s surprising that you don’t see many entrepreneurs shopping around for some new technology to fund at UC San Diego’s Interdisciplinary Computing in the Arts & Music (ICAM) presentations. The productions occur on the last day of spring quarter each year and are really the place to see the latest developments, trends and realizations in computing and the arts. “The projects of our students range from pure research, through computer games, all the way to art installations and performances,” said Visual Arts Professor Brett Stalbaum, who co-directs the program with Music Professor Peter Otto. “This is where you really see innovation,” Otto added. “It isn’t really happening in the game companies out there, as you might expect, but in student projects like these at ICAM.” For the last five months, ICAM students have been working on their Senior Thesis Project, which is their stepping stone to graduate school or a job in the new media marketplace. “I have put every spare minute into my project,” said Wesley Hawkins, who single-handedly built and programmed his own combat simulator video game. “This is my fifth year at UCSD. I spent three years studying chemical engineering before I switched to ICAM. I made the switch because I finally realized that I wanted to make some ‘fun’ stuff; I consider myself a funengineer!” Hawkins constructed an army-green wooden cockpit, the size of a VW bug, and adorned the interior with a video screen, computer and controls, some of which came out of a Honda Prelude that he and his girlfriend

cockpit and play a video game that takes place on a mining planet, where you are inside a converted transformer-like salvage robot

that has been armed to fight bandits, who are raiding the planet. Hawkins built all the hardware, wrote the software computer program, and drew all the graphic art by himself! This is quite a feat because a game like this usually requires a team effort with many people involved in the various aspects. Fellow ICAM student Nick Wolford used two arduino devices, clear PVC pipe, lacrosse balla and LCD lights to create a new style of hand-held toy, which he calls a “Techno Icosahedron.” Modeled after a geodesic dome, the toy will play music and flash different light sequences as you spin it around. You can also place it on a shelf as a light fixture/art piece. Kevin Lam placed light sensors around a bowl of water to create a fascinating new type of musical instrument he calls “Hydrina.” You play the Hydrina by placing your fingers in the water and twiddling them. The resulting ripples on the water are picked up by the sensors and cause different sounds to be played through a speaker. Grady Kestler used complex math formulas to develop a new process for creating 3-D surround-sound headphones. Currently, to get a good set, you must have your head, nose, and ears personally measured because your features affect the soundfield around you. Kestler’s math may make it easier to mass produce quality surround-sound headphones, which may someday come with your iPhone!

Cygnet Theatre opens season with Sondheim’s ‘Company’

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY DIANA SAENGER Cygnet Theatre Artistic Director Sean Murray directs the season opener and compares Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” to a great detective novel where there are clues in the music about what’s happening in the story. Sondheim songs in the 1970 ground-breaking hit (nominated for 14 Tony Awards) include “The Ladies Who Lunch,” “I’m Not Getting Married,” “Another 100 People” and “Being Alive.” George Furth wrote the book for the comedy, and the music and lyrics are Sondheim classics. Murray vocalized his admiration for the composer when Cygnet recently staged Sondheim’s “Assassins.” Murray said he continues to seek award-winning shows to produce. “ ‘Company’ was a breakout for Sondheim, who had done ‘Forum,’ and was doing a lot of collaborations. ‘Company’ is a first conceptual musical, which means it’s more than just a plot; it’s an exploration of a theme.” Through short vignettes, ‘Company’ centers on the character of Bobby. He’s about to turn 35 and is puzzled over why he can’t commit to one of his girlfriends and be happy like his married friends. “This musical questions relationships,” Murray said. “Is it a failure to commit or allow yourself to be vulnerable? One of the themes

If you go What: “Company” When: Matinees, evenings, July 5-Aug. 18 Where: Cygnet Theatre Company, Old Town Stage, 4040 Twiggs St., San Diego Tickets: Tickets: $24-$59 Box office: (619) 337-1525 Web: www.cygnettheatre. com that comes up often is compromise. “There are a lot of benefits in being in a committed relationship, but there are freedoms a single person has that married people sometime sacrifice. You have to ‘give in’ in order to ‘get,’ and that’s a problem for Bobby. He’s looking at the other side of the fence and longing for that, but unwilling to give up what he already has.”

In an era when the idea of marriage is being explored — who can be married and who cannot — “Company” is of renewed interest. “It was different in 1970 than today,” Murray said. “Back then, there was more pressure for people to get married at a certain point in life, and if they didn’t, society didn’t find that acceptable. Bobby has to find out for himself what is important without society pushing it on him.” This production has a cast of 14 actors and an additional six musicians. Musical direction is by Patrick Marion and choreography by David Brannen. Murray is credited with staging incredible productions on the intimate stage at Cygnet. “Every project we begin is like creating a new universe for that project to live in,” Murray said. “We figure out the theme of the show and as we get closer to what the world of that show is, we begin to work with designers. A lot of them are the same designers we’ve been blessed to work with before. This allows us a short hand. “For example, I know how Chris Rynne lights a show, and that helps us create a clear and focused world so the audience knows what we’re trying to say. More than telling those creating the show what to do, I try to paint a picture of what we’re trying to create, and work with what they bring to it, so it becomes a collaborative production.”

Ham’s heirs remodel his ‘lighthouse’ on the bay BY KELLEY CARLSON fter a recent $3.5 million renovation, Tom Ham’s Lighthouse is back in the spotlight. While it retains its classic early California design, the restaurant has a new interior, bayfront bar, outdoor dining deck and wedding site, along with an updated menu. “My father, Tom Ham, built Tom Ham’s Lighthouse in 1971,� said Susie Baumann, who co-owns the restaurant with her husband, Larry. “This was his dream, to build a restaurant that highlighted the history of San Diego. I think he would be pleased with the outcome of this remodel. The genius of our architect, Graham Downes, was that he could see what an older building could be.� The history is apparent from the moment you walk into the lobby of this functioning lighthouse, known as Beacon No. 9 on U.S. Coast Guard nautical maps. There are antique model ships behind glass and a shiny USCG 1893 Fog Bell stationed near the stairway. Patrons can peek through windows into the new keg room full of local brews before ascending to the dining room on the second floor. Along the walls of the grand stairway are multicolored panes of stained glass and illustrations of maps and nautical charts from the 1900s to the present. The upstairs landing opens into a spacious room that displays artifacts like shipwheels and oars, and has large panes of glass that provide unobstructed views of San Diego Bay, the Coronado Bridge and downtown San Diego’s skyline.


On The Menu Recipe Each week you’ll find a recipe from the featured restaurant online at Just click ‘Get The Recipe’ at the bottom of the story. Wild Salmon is served with an English pea puree, beluga lentils and pork belly. To the right is the dining room with tables next to the windows and “elevated� booths in the back, including a private “Sweetheart Table� for two. “You get a view no matter where you sit,� said Andy Baumann, who joins his sister and manages the restaurant with his brother Grant. On the left side of the space is the bar, which faces the bay and contains a collection of ship heads. Guests can slurp on $1 oysters during happy hour, gaze at the city as it lights up after sunset, root for their favorite sports teams on two TVs, and relax with mellow melodies while quaffing a craft beer. There are 32 brews on tap — 27 of them local — including Beacon No. 9, a light beer exclusively created for Tom Ham’s by Ballast Point. There’s also an extensive wine list, offered by the glass and bottle, and specialty cocktails such as the signature Saucy Sally, a citrus-flavored libation with light rum,

■This week’s recipe: Tom Ham’s Pan-Roasted Wild King Salmon with beluga lentils and English pea puree Chambord and lemon verbena. Outside is a heated dining deck that extends over the ocean, bordered by infinity glass. On Wednesday through Aug. 7, it’s a hot spot to watch sailboats fill the bay for the annual Beer Can Races, while sitting in the cool shade. Most of the menu consists of seafood, delivered fresh daily. One of the lunch crowd favorites is the Crab BLT with heirloom tomato, butter lettuce and peppered bacon on brioche toast. “The minute you bite into it, the

bread condenses, it’s so soft,� Andy Baumann said. At dinner, many people start off their courses with an appetizer, such as Calamari with honey, lime and chili or the smoky Grilled Octopus with olive, confit tomato and sauce vierge. For the main dish, there is pan-roasted Wild Salmon in an English pea puree with beluga lentils and pork belly; Linguini and Clams with green onion and tomato, covered in a white wine sauce; Lobster Bouillabaisse with clams, mussels, scallops, fish and pieces of toasted baguette soaking in a saffron broth; and Executive Chef Lance Repp’s personal favorite, House Made Linguini noodles with uni butter, paddlefish roe, chive and pecorino cheese. A non-seafood entrÊe to note is the Jidori Half-Brick Chicken with wild mushroom risotto in pan jus. Among the desserts offered are Mango Cheesecake and Almond Brown Butter Cake with goat cheese Chantilly and cherry ginger compote. Reservations are recommended at Tom Ham’s and almost required for the popular Sunday brunch, which includes lobster claws, crab legs, an omelet station, pasta station and prime rib. Furthermore, the establishment hosts special events in its three banquet spaces — the California Room, Harbor View Room and Private Dining Room. And it has a new wedding ceremony site with an arch created by local artist Christopher Puzio, which contains 2,000 individual aluminum rings and frames the downtown San Diego skyline.

CV entrepreneur’s Surf-Grip functions as a ‘bodyboard for your hands’ BY KRISTINA HOUCK Carmel Valley resident and entrepreneur Michael Sick developed a product he said beachgoers use surfer lingo — and his last name — to describe. “‘Sick’ was not always cool, but when people see this they say, ‘Oh man, that’s sick!’” he said. Sick describes the Surf-Grip as a “bodyboard for your hands.” The lightweight foam paddle with a handle allows bodysurfers to have increased buoyancy and velocity when catching waves. “Not everybody can go to the beach every day, so when I go to the beach I want to have a good time regardless of what the waves are,” said Sick, 58. Tired of hauling bulky bodyboards during family trips to the beach, Sick, a father of four, longed for a more portable product that could be used to improve his bodysurfing ability. Using pool noodles and ski pole handles, the New York native experimented with several prototypes before the bodysurfing tool was manufactured in Southern California. Sick has sold roughly 3,000 Surf-Grips since the product launched in 2009. “If you’ve got a bunch of kids, a cooler, umbrella, chairs and four bodyboards, these are a whole lot easier,” said Sick, who also heads Sick Consulting, a marketing and consulting firm. Also a fitness device, Sick noted Surf-Grippers can use one or two simultaneously when working out. “This is a way to get a little bit more active experience and really ride the waves rather than dodging the waves,” Sick said. Pacific Beach resident Trevor Moore learned about Surf-

I think it is going to become popular to all people whether they’re new to water sports or are experienced surfers and grew up in the water.” The Surf-Grip currently sells for $14.99 plus shipping online and is also available at Rusty Boardhouse in La Jolla, Green Room Surf Shop in Ocean Beach and Wind An Sea Surfboards in Mission Beach.

Frontline: Cancer

To Your Health: Top 10 Summer Safety Tips

Academia-Industry partnerships turbocharge cancer medicine

BY SANAZ MAJD, MD, SCRIPPS HEALTH Pool parties, barbecues, beach outings and bonfires…summer fun is in full swing. Enjoy the sun and warm weather even more by taking steps to protect yourself and your family from injuries and illnesses that tend to be more common in the summer months. Keep these ten tips in mind for a safer summer: 1. Avoid the Burn Sun exposure is the main culprit in the majority of skin problems from sunburn to cancer. Protect your skin with wide-brimmed hats, sun-protective clothing, and an above 30 SPF sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays (even on cloudy days) preferably containing ingredients titanium and/or zinc oxide. Make sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours. Harmful rays can pass through car windows as well, so be sure to wear sunscreen while driving. 2. Pool Play Follow all posted safety rules at swimming pools and know where to find emergency safety equipment such as life preservers and rescue poles. Ensure children wear appropriate floatation devices, and never leave a child unattended. Keep a mobile phone nearby in case you need to call 911. If you have a backyard pool or spa, cover it when not in use and invest in a pool lock for added safety. 3. Ocean Awareness Whether you’re swimming, bodysurfing or just playing in the waves, avoid going into the ocean alone and always let someone on shore know that you’re going in. Stay in a designated swimming area where lifeguards can easily see you, and ask about rip currents or other dangers. If you do get caught in a current, don’t panic or try to swim out of it. Stay relaxed and swim parallel to shore until you’re free. 4. Sea Critter Alert Stingrays and jellyfish can be abundant at San Diego beaches, especially as the water warms up. Shuffle your feet when you enter the water to let stingrays know you’re coming; they are unlikely to sting unless you step on them. If you do get stung by a ray or jellyfish, alert a lifeguard. 5. Stay Afloat Going boating? Make sure everyone has a life jacket and the boat has required safety equipment. San Diego’s waterways can get crowded in summer, so keep an eye out for watercrafts such as jet skis, paddleboards and kayaks. Never operate any type of watercraft while distracted or drinking alcoholic beverages. 6. Fireworks Fireworks cause thousands of injuries every year. More than 80 percent of emergency room fireworks injuries involve legal fireworks— handheld sparklers, for example, can burn at more than 1200 degrees. If you do use legal fireworks, keep them away from young children and always have an adult present. Light fireworks one at a time, back away to a safe distance after lighting, and never try to re-light them if they don’t ignite. Keep a hose or bucket of water nearby in case of fire, and soak used fireworks before putting them into the trash. The safest way to enjoy fireworks? Attend a professional display. 7. Keep Cool When the temperature climbs, so does the risk of heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Symptoms of heat-related illness include muscle cramps, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, disorientation, nausea and vomiting. Immediate medical attention is a must for both heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Call 911 and help the person cool down in the shade with cold water. Stay extra-hydrated in the summer months, especially if drinking alcohol. Carry a few water bottles with you everywhere you go. 8. Food Safety Beach cookout? Take extra precautions to keep food safe. Wash your hands or use a hand sanitizer before handling food. Make sure that foods are cooked to the proper temperature to kill bacteria, and use separate plates for raw and cooked foods. Keep cold food on ice, and don’t eat food that has been left out for more than two hours. 9. Poison Plants Contact with the oils secreted by poison ivy and poison oak may cause an itchy, blistering skin rash 12 to 72 hours later. In most cases, the rash can be treated at home with cool compresses, calamine lotion and oral antihistamines; serious reactions such as breathing difficulty and facial swelling require emergency medical care. Protect yourself by avoiding contact with the plants or anything they may have touched, such as clothing, animal fur or hiking equipment. 10. Travel Smart Taking a summer road trip? With more cars on the roads and tourists driving in unfamiliar areas, motor vehicle safety is more important than ever. Buckle up every time you’re in the car, and ensure children use an age-appropriate car or booster seat. Practice distraction-free driving and keep your eyes on the road.

BY SCOTT M. LIPPMAN What happens when you put the nation’s second largest cluster of life science companies in the same town with one of the world’s most amazing groups of academic biomedical research institutions? You accelerate a certain chemistry, the combinatorial kind that produces a phenomenon known as the academia-industry partnership, or AIP. This supercharged chemistry happens in San Diego and La Jolla, where AIPs fuel the development of novel cancer medicines that help patients get better. More so than almost any other place on Earth, researchers and entrepreneurs from industry and academia rub shoulders in San Diego and La Jolla. They commingle in events that foster AIPs, like the annual UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center Industry/Academia Translational Oncology Symposium. They get together through two nonprofit organizations, BIOCOM and CONNECT, that strongly facilitate AIPs via services to the region’s numerous biotechnology companies. This proximity matters. It’s hard to beat creative interactions stemming from spontaneous and short-notice encounters and meetings, from seeing raw data and experiments in person in the lab, and from a host of other immediate advantages that Skype, e-mail and distance can’t offer. AIPs work, and work fast. For example, in 2008 Catriona Jamieson, M.D., Ph.D., and academic colleagues in La Jolla reported that a JAK2 mutation in cancer stem cells drives the hematologic cancer myelofibrosis (MF). MF is debilitating and life-threatening, with abnormal blood-cell production and scarring in the bone marrow. Jamieson linked up with another academic scientist, David Cheresh, Ph.D., who had founded the local company TargeGen, which developed a JAK2-inhibiting drug. They formed an AIP. Only eight months after the JAK2-stem cell discovery in 2008, this AIP began a clinical trial of the JAK2 inhibitor here and else-

Dr. Scott Lippman where. The early-phase trial was quite successful, helping patients right away and a harbinger of things to come in this emerging era of targeted therapy. It caught the eye of the large pharmaceutical company Sanofi-Aventis, which acquired TargeGen in June 2010. More trials were then launched at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center and elsewhere, and last month, Sanofi announced that the drug’s large, multi-national Food and Drug Administration-registration trial, called JAKARTA, had exceeded its expected benefit. If all goes well, it’s expected the FDA will approve the drug for cancer treatments in 2014. This case of AIP-turbocharged drug development went from 0 to 60 in eight months and from 0 to the finish line in just five years. That’s lightning fast compared with typical cancer drug development, which often takes from 10 to 15 or more years to get an idea to market. Drug development moves fast in La Jolla because it’s easier to generate the AIPs that propel good science and medicine. Inspired by success stories like JAK2 targeting in MF, researchers from academia and industry are partnering to build and occupy the Center for Novel Therapeutics (CNT; originally announced as the Center for Innovative Therapeutics). The CNT will incubate scientific discovery and then foster AIPs that speed development of clinical testing and therapeutics. The 110,000-squarefoot CNT will rise in the UCSD Science Research Park, just east of the Moores Cancer Center. Teams of potential CNT developers, architects, contractors and

consultants attended a mandatory Qualifiers Meeting in May. By June 10, the teams had to submit their qualifications to develop the CNT, which is slated to open in July 2016. The CNT will house academia and industry tenants in wet and dry laboratories, including space for bioengineering and medicinal chemistry. It will house people who know how to develop clinical protocols, as well as core facilities to support joint research. Several large labs from Moores will become CNT tenants. The scientific leaders of these labs have all been involved in AIPs. They believe in the CNT’s ability to facilitate and hasten AIPs that will help them get their discoveries into therapeutics that help patients as quickly as possible. It all comes together nicely: All of the pieces needed to create and develop life-saving cancer therapeutics and technology under one roof in the CNT. In turn, the CNT is near clinical doctors and researchers at the NCI-designated comprehensive Moores Cancer Center (just across the street) and at the UCSD Thornton Hospital and the Hospital for Cancer Care (walking distance) within the Jacobs Medical Center (scheduled to open in 2016). Nearby as well are Moores’ large bank of clinical tissue specimens and the UCSD Center for Advanced Laboratory Medicine. Whether within the same building (CNT), campus (UCSD), community (La Jolla) or city (San Diego), close proximity spurs invention, inspiration and innovation, in this case in the form of AIPs. These partnerships are at the heart of accelerated drug development that makes life better in our community, the nation and the world. Scott M. Lippman, MD, is Director of UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center. His column on medical advances from the front lines of cancer research and care appears in this newspaper once a month.

Longtime Italian restaurant Villa Capri more popular than ever Eatery offering family-style meals Sunday nights BY KAREN BILLING After 13 years as a reliably tasty Italian eatery in Piazza Carmel, Villa Capri Cucina owner Salvatore Ercolano is still looking for new and exciting ways to bring neighbors in for the first time or to keep regulars coming back. The restaurant is now offering family-style meals every Sunday night. The family-style menu includes a selection of the “most-ordered” Villa Capri favorites in big potions, large enough to share. Ercolano wants a family of four to get a great deal dining on a family-style appetizer, pasta and an entrée. He hopes people will skip going to the store and worrying about cooking and cleaning up and let Villa Capri handle Sunday dinners. Since 1993, Ercolano has opened 17 restaurants in San Diego County, along with his partner Antonio

Salvatore Ercolano has owned Villa Capri in Piazza Carmel for 13 years. PHOTO/KAREN BILLING Viscito. He has enjoyed his time at Piazza Carmel “I like the quality of the people in Carmel Valley, they have a certain standard here,” Ercolano said. “I com-

plement the look of the restaurant and the consistency of my food for the palate of the people who live here.” Ercolano still speaks with an Italian accent from his Capri origins, where he

learned the ins and outs of the restaurant business from his restaurateur father. Before landing in San Diego, he spent time in restaurants in Bermuda, New York City and Hong Kong. Ercolano spent a little time in the kitchen and used to make desserts — some of his specialties included tiramisu, ricotta cheesecake, ice cream and flourless chocolate almond cake, a typical dessert from Capri that is a sweet staple on his restaurants’ menus. “Tiramisu and chocolate almond cake will always be on my restaurant menus,” Ercolano said. “Those two desserts are so good you never hear people say ‘No, I’ve had enough.’” Ercolano owns eight Come on In Café locations throughout San Diego (two more are slated to open soon, in Chula Vista and one on High Bluff Drive in Carmel Valley) and a second Villa Capri location in Poway, next to Target. Villa Capri 2, which was located in Torrey Highlands Center off Camino Del Sur, is no longer in existence and Ercolano stresses that he is not affili-

ated with the new restaurant in its place. Ercolano also does catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner for any kind of event. He does free consultations and will coordinate everything for events from “A to Z.” At Villa Capri, customers can dine al fresco in a dog-friendly outdoor patio or enjoy meals indoors in the warmly decorated restaurant. The menu is stuffed with traditional Italian dishes from lasagna to fusilli with fresh salmon and leeks in pink vodka sauce; veal scallopini to fettucini with classic Italian lamb ragout. For those with dietary concerns, Villa Capri can offer gluten-free pasta as well as whole wheat pasta options. During the weekdays, Villa Capri serves up a prix fixe lunch with six different three-course and dessert options to choose from, ranging in price from $9.95 to $14.95. The restaurant also boasts a very nice wine list as Ercolano is always on the lookout for great wines at reasonable prices. Mondays

and Tuesdays the restaurant offers 50 percent-off wines for wine lovers. To show his appreciation to customers, Ercolano said people can go online and sign up for a Villa Capri VIP card and immediately receive $15 off their next meal. Every time a VIP card holder spends $100 in one of his restaurants they get $25 off the bill. From July 1 to the end of September, VIP members will get $20 off their meals, a summer “extravaganza and craziness from Salvatore Ercolano” as a token of his appreciation. Villa Capri also hosts occasional wine dinners and the next Carmel Valley event is upcoming on Aug. 28. The five-course dinner paired with wines will be “an Italian gastronomic ballet,” Ercolano said. For more information, visit Villa Capri is open for lunch Monday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and daily for dinner from 4:309:30 p.m. Via Capri in Carmel Valley is located at Piazza Carmel: 3870 Valley Centre Drive, #301 San Diego, CA 92130; 858-720-8777.

New Melero Boutique & Gallery offers variety of women’s apparel, accessories Flower Hill shop offers ‘things that don’t exist in San Diego’ BY KRISTINA HOUCK Due to growing demand for high-end fashions from Ruth Melero’s North County customers, the San Diego-based entrepreneur opened her second store in March in Del Mar’s Flower Hill Promenade. The first Melero Boutique & Gallery opened in Little Italy more than three years ago. “Our customers love our one-of-a-kind products, but some were having a hard time driving all the way to Little Italy,” Melero said. From lace blouses and dresses by Exetera in Paris, to hand-crafted earrings and necklaces by La Jollabased designer Leslie Fastlicht Russo, Melero Boutique & Gallery offers a variety of women’s apparel and accessories. Specializing in European styles, Melero travels to Paris, Munich or Berlin every six months to stock her stores with the latest fashions from popular and

emerging designers. “I have things that don’t exist in San Diego,” Melero said. “It’s unique. It makes Melero Boutique & Gallery rare and different from anybody else.” Passionate about discovering up-and-coming designers, Melero said she only purchases items she would wear. “If I believe in it and I love it, I know I’ll sell it,” Melero said. Longtime customer Sonya Berg, who lives near Del Mar, said she frequents the boutique to shop for horse racing season and polo matches. “I love her clothes. I like that they have an ethnic flair, and they’re not like any other clothes you can find around San Diego,” Berg said. “She carries a lot of stuff that’s great for our Del Mar lifestyle.” Using $2,000 she won from a beauty competition, Melero opened her first store in Durango, Mexico, shortly after graduating from high school. “It was hilarious because I was 19 years old,”

Melero said. “My high school friends would purchase things. It was just a great experience.” Before closing the shop to study business and international commerce in college, Melero traveled by bus from Durango to Monterrey, Mexico, for two years to purchase clothing to sell. Now 34 years old and inspired by her travels and love of fashion, Melero is currently developing a jewelry line with her friend Bettina Estes. Vlu is expected to launch in both boutique locations by the end of the year. “There’s going to be pieces that you’re never going to want to take off,” Melero said. “They’re statement pieces that represent you and are very personalized.” In addition to discovering the latest trends and designing her first line of jewelry, Melero produces and directs various fashion events and photo shoots. As a personal stylist, Melero also offers in-store and in-home wardrobe consultations, encouraging her clients to “think outside


the box” and try on new styles. “A lot of people get discouraged,” Melero said. “When you walk in and you’re looking at something that’s hanging, it’s not the same as when you wear it.” Although she admits her selection can be pricey for the casual shopper, Melero said customers on a budget can get a new look by building their wardrobe slowly. “If you come here on a monthly basis and choose one item, your closet is going to be out of this world by the end of the year,” Melero said. “Start getting timeless pieces that are going to be in your wardrobe forever.” For more information about Melero Boutique & Gallery or to shop online, visit www.meleroboutique. com. Melero Boutique & Gallery is located at Flower Hill Mall, 2710 Via de la Valle, Suite B-150, Del Mar, 92014; (858) 259-7467.

Del Mar Rotary Club celebrates outgoing and incoming presidents BY EMILY FIGUEIREDO, CLUB PUBLICITY CHAIR It was a lively, spirited group that gathered at the Fish Market on Via de la Valle on Saturday, June 15. More than 50 Rotarians and their significant others enjoyed dinner and lots of laughs and praises as the current president of the 2012-2013 Rotary year, Val Myers, was demoted from her role and incoming president Pat Dougherty was promoted for the 2013-2014 year. Fellow club members roasted Val’s frustrations with technology while praising her inspiring strength and dedication to the club even through health challenges which are thankfully far behind now. Under Val’s leadership, the club gave out thousands of dollars in

Val Myers and Pat Dougherty scholarship funds for local youth, supported local nonprofit agencies with donations and hands-on work, sent club members to third world countries to work on service projects, put on successful fundraiser events and bonded over a Rotary trivia challenge at the weekly Thursday afternoon meetings. Val said she truly enjoyed the year as president

because of her friends and mentors in the organization. “I really got to know just how much everyone steps up for this club. I found out who was accomplishing great things behind the scenes and so many people offered their help when I needed it. This club is an amazing group of people.” Val presented the “Rookie of the Year” award to Mark Henshaw and the

“Rotarian of the Year” award to John Matthews for their outstanding efforts and dedication to the club. Val also recognized and presented roses to her board members, president of the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club Richard Fogg, her husband Jeff and daughter Paige for their support during this past year. Similarly, incoming president Pat Dougherty is also looking forward to a year of teamwork. He expressed his gratitude and anticipation to work with the 2013-2014 board members which were inducted on Saturday night along with Pat. Pat Dougherty is cofounder of Solana Beachbased contracting company Steigerwald-Dougherty, Inc. and has been a Rotarian for over a decade.

Don Diego Dinner and Concert Gala The stars were out on the evening of June 15 for the Steve Miller Band concert at the San Diego County Fair Grandstand. Earlier, the stars were inside the famed Turf Club, scene of the annual Don Diego Scholarship Foundation Gala. Since 1986, the Foundation has awarded more than $600,000 in college scholarships and grants for agricultural education. Before settling in their VIP concert seats to rock out with the band, famous for such songs as “Fly Like an Eagle,” some 200 people – including local notables– enjoyed cocktails, silent auction, gourmet dinner, and introduction of 2013 scholars Brooke Buckley, Matt Kelly and Scott Jacobson, each of whom received a $5,000 scholarship. Unable to be at the event, Tessa Adler, first in her Pt. Loma class and bound for Yale, received $5,000 plus the first $5,000 Spanjian scholarship for a total of $10,000.

Del Mar Foundation launches Summer Twilight Concert series BY JOHN R. SAENZ The Del Mar Foundation kicked off its 30th annual Summer Twilight Concert series on June 18 at the Powerhouse Park in Del Mar. The first of this four concert series featured the returning band Atomic Groove, which rocked the crowd with its high-energy dance music. The Donnis Trio performed the opening act with their folk rock-inspired melodies, as families and friends picnicked on the grass. “You have good food, good music and friends with all this beautiful scenery; this is the best way to kick off the summer,” said Susan Johnson, a local teacher who attended with a group of friends. Johnson has been attending the summer concerts on and off for the last 20 years. The concerts are made possible by the generous funding of its sponsors: The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, Marrokal Design and Remodeling, Jake’s Del Mar, Lutz Insurance Services, Poseidon, Zel’s Del Mar and Jeff Miller and by a grant from the County of San Diego. Volunteers, including Del Mar Lifeguards and Del Mar Foundation board members, ensured a well-run and memorable evening. Nine-year-old Zoe Wallace of Del Mar, attending her first Twilight Concert with her family, said “The music is amazing and everyone is having such a good time.” She was quick to point out she plans to attend future summer concerts. The next Twilight Concert takes place on Tuesday, July 9, featuring the band Mrs. Robinson. On Tuesday, August 13, join the Del Mar Foundation for a Tribute to Crosby, Stills and Nash, Back to the Garden. Both concerts begin at 6 p.m. with an opening act, followed by the main act at 7 p.m. The final Summer Twilight Concert will be on Sunday, Sept. 8, featuring Mark Wood and the Parrot Head Band. The opening act begins at 4 p.m. with the main act beginning at 5 p.m. For additional information about Del Mar Foundation events and how to become a sponsor of the Summer Twilight Concerts, visit or call 858-7505883. As Del Mar’s oldest 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages over

SWIMMER continued from page B1 techniques and different ways of doing things,� Galindo said. “A lot of times the older they get the more set in their ways they are and they don’t want to change things. “Garrett’s coming in later in the sport and having an open mind has definitely been an advantage and will continue to be an advantage for him down the road.� Schmid acknowledges that his more experienced competitors have certain advantages, but he believes that competing in a sport that still feels fresh and new has benefits too. He insists that his enjoyment of the sport is one of the biggest pluses. “I think it’s an advantage and a disadvantage,� he said of his late-comer status. “The people who have been swimming longer don’t enjoy the sport as much because they almost get like burned out, but I’m not used to all the events yet and so the other guys might have an advantage.� But Schmid is leaving nothing to chance. He trains daily, averaging 15 hours a week in the pool. Schmid aims to compete at the collegiate level, but next on his to-do list is qualifying for Junior Nationals, something he hopes to accomplish this summer. “It’s been a dream to go to Junior Nationals so that would mean a lot to me,� Schmid said. It was also mean a lot to his college prospect status going into his junior year, Galindo said. “I think that’s a great benchmark for him,� Galindo said. But it is an early benchmark in the career of a swimmer that Galindo says has great potential. “He’s definitely just scratching the surface as to what he’s capable of,� Galindo said. “He’s still focusing a lot on technique and just beginning to get into strength training. Adding those things in with a little more volume and I think down the road he’s going to hopefully be set up [to reach his goals].� For his part, Schmid is the first to admit that his journey to a successful swimming career couldn’t be more improbable. “I never really expected any of this,� Schmid said. “It was just some conditioning classes that brought me into this. We played some games in the pool and pretty much that brought me into all of this, I’m really glad it happened.�

Divine picnic: a primer on summer’s outdoor portable party The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN Everybody loves a picnic (especially those pesky ants) — whether it be sharing crusty bread, cheese and grapes with friends on a canoe; eating box lunches on the beach with the kids; or a romantic tête-à-tête along the lake sipping wine and savoring caviar blinis and other gourmet treats sumptuously displayed from a bamboo picnic basket. Executing a divine picnic is truly an art form. Although we missed International Picnic Day (June 18), we still have the rest of the summer, including July 4th to celebrate. Here’s a primer to get the best out of this outdoor portable party. Imported from France The French lay a solid claim as any to the origin of the word “picnic.” Etymologists believe it is derived from the French, “pique-nique,” the verb “piquer,” meaning “to pick or peck,” and the rhyming suffix “nique,” which means “trifling thing or bagatelle.” Two sandwiches shy … Sandwiches, hands down, are the most iconic and perfect picnic food. They are portable, low maintenance in terms of serving and utensil use, and clean up well. They also appeal to a wide range of tastes (both savory and sweet), as there are more sandwich amalgams than license plate combinations. Also, a sandwich properly constructed provides a complete meal (protein, carb, fruits and veggies). To me, a sandwich is only as good as the sum of its parts, and an outstanding sandwich should have five components: bread, filling, condiments, toppings and sides. For starters, use a fresh assortment of breads and buns (ciabatta, seeded baguette, Challah rolls, pita

pockets), accompanied by organic meats and fowl, wildcaught firm fish, cheeses (Swiss and spreadable goat are good choices), raw or grilled veggies, nut butters and pure fruit preserves. You can easily convert your sandwich to different ethnicities by changing up the accessories (toppings, condiments and sides). A grilled Portobello can be done Italian-style if topped with arugula and pesto vinaigrette, and a heap of sun-dried tomato chips. If you have a yen, do an Asian Portobello by topping with daikon radishes and wasabi, and a side of ginger seasoned slaw. A Mediterranean sandwich is a mushroom stuffed in a pita pocket with feta crumbles, shredded cucumber and black olives, drizzled with tzatziki. Other ideal picnic offerings include finger foods that travel well and aren’t super perishable (baked pita chips, carrot, celery and jicama sticks) and Persian cucumber slices with hummus dips, along with an assortment of grapes, fruit kebobs and cheese chunks. For dessert, pack along bite-size treats like pecan brownies, oatmeal date squares or Nanaimo bars (in sealable containers). Don’t forget to bring plenty of portable fluids to keep everyone hydrated. Picnic dos • Bring a picnic basket filled with unbreakable plates and cups, flatware and serving utensils, napkins and hand-wipes, a sharp knife, corkscrew and bottle opener, a durable tablecloth and plastic tarp (if the ground is damp), and multi-purpose cutting boards for prepping, displaying and serving cheeses and other goodies. • Bring the right amount of food — not too little, not too much that will be spoiled and wasted. • Keep cold things cold and hot things hot. Bring two coolers packed with ice – one for drinks that are opened frequently, the other for food items. Keep hot items in thermos containers. • Pack salt and pepper shakers, mustard, ketchup and other nonperishable condiments. Picnic don’ts • Skip heavy, bulky or breakable containers, packages or jars, candles or other fire risks, a cranky baby (or adult). • Pass on anything that will melt, stick to fingers or attract bugs (ice cream, puddings, gooey cakes) or anything mayonnaise or cream-based that will spoil in the heat. A-Tisket, A-Tasket • Early picnics were potluck feasts that preceded the chase during medieval hunting conventions in England and France. • When an ant visits a picnic site, it deposits a scent so it can find its way back from the nest after telling family members where to crash the party. • In 2000, France celebrated the first Bastille Day of the millennium with a 600-mile-long picnic extravaganza.

ICAM continued from page B1 ate studies. Ricca created a computer program that directs lighting while sending instructions to human performers, which will be very useful in live performance art pieces. Cory Gehrich composed a 30-minute musical piece that examines the current political situation in this country. Gehrich integrated music he wrote with recorded speeches off the Internet. He also played all the instruments involved. The Music Department gave Gehrich an award for “Best Composition Student� this year. Sophie Dowd constructed a four-by-four foot white box and projected different visual images on each of the five sides of the box using three external film projectors. She did the filming and also wrote the accompanying musical score. Otto called the piece “sublime� and encouraged Dowd to place it in an art gallery as an installation piece. David Lopez de Arenosa closed out the evening’s presentations by setting up as a band for computer, guitars and voice. He sang and played while the computer mixed and trans-

formed his presentation to create a very beautiful sonic environment. “Five or ten years ago a student could do a part of a project, such as a computer game,� Professor Otto observed. “But now students have the skill and mindset to build the container, write the program, and create the music and artwork involved. They are now multi-talented and multitasking. They can do the whole thing themselves!� Professor Stalbaum noted that the department was “proud our major is adept at filling the top graduate programs in art and technology, and in industry, where our grads work at companies ranging from Sony to Yahoo.� Otto also noted that for the future, the plan is to help students bring their ideas to fruition in the marketplace. He said Larry Smarr, who heads up California Institute of Technology (Calit2) which supports ICAM student work has stated the next step is to build relations with entrepreneurs and game companies to shrink the gap between conception and manifestation of a product in the marketplace from six years to six months. “Right here, in this classroom, we are inventing the future of media!� Otto proclaimed.
