Supervisor hopefuls Danon, Roberts debate Talk focuses on business at chamber-sponsored event BY JOE TASH Steve Danon and Dave Roberts, who are both running to succeed Pam Slater-Price on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, traded jabs and put forward their ideas for generating jobs and improving San Diego’s business climate in a lively debate on Monday, Sept. 24. The debate was sponsored

by the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce, and all of the questions — most of which centered on topics of related to business — were prepared by the chamber’s public policy committee. Reporter Alison St. John of KPBS radio served as moderator. The debate drew a crowd of more than 200, according to

chamber officials, which was highly partisan, applauding loudly following responses by their favored candidate. The event was held at the offices of AMN Healthcare in Carmel Valley. Slater-Price’s retirement means that a new member will See DEBATE, Page 6

Caltrans updates plan to widen I-5 BY JOE TASH Caltrans unveiled new details regarding its plan to widen I-5 in North County at a public meeting in Encinitas on Wednesday, Sept. 19, which include additional work to restore and preserve lagoons, and more bicycle and pedestrian paths. At the meeting, held at the Encinitas Community and Senior Center, North County residents were able to examine graphics depicting different elements of the project, ask questions of Caltrans technical experts, and even dictate comments and questions to a court reporter.

The new information about the project is contained in a draft supplemental Environmental Impact Report, which was officially released for public comment on Aug. 31. The public has until Oct. 15 to review and comment on the document. Additional documents to be released in the coming months include a final EIR and a “public works plan,” that will also include plans to upgrade rail service along the I-5 corridor. Caltrans officials stressed that the project inSee CALTRANS, Page 6

DM school district expected to approve new bond policy

Update on SD Polo Club lease process may be coming soon

BY KAREN BILLING The Del Mar Union School District is looking at developing a new policy and resolution on the use of capital appreciation bonds (CABs) in regards to its general obligation bond on November’s ballot. The board had Dan McAllister, San Diego County treasurer-tax collector, at its Sept. 19 meeting as it considered the policy. “We’d like to give the public assurances that we’re doing our fiduciary responsibility in issuing the

BY JOE TASH For about two years, the San Diego Polo Club has been waiting to find out from the city of San Diego whether its lease will be renewed for the 80-acre parcel of land it has occupied since 1986. In the next week or so, the club hopes to get an indication of the city’s plans. The club’s original 26-year lease for the city-owned property expired in March, and even before that date, the club had been in contact with the city, seeking a new lease or an

bond,” said Trustee Doug Perkins. The county treasurer-tax collector has sent letters to local school districts to highlight how the bond financing can be “excessively costly” for both school districts and taxpayers and to provide the County’s Office of Education with recommendations on other debt financing solutions. The use of long-dated CABs has come to the public’s attention See BOND, Page 6

extension. In 2011, the city announced it would go out to bid for a new lessee, rather than negotiate exclusively with the polo club. Alex Roth, a spokesman for the San Diego mayor’s office, said in December that the city expected to issue a request for proposals from prospective bidders in the spring of this year. However, that RFP was never issued. As of press-time for this newspaper, Roth had not responded See POLO, Page 14

San Diego County Taxpayers’ Association supports high school district bond, opposes Del Mar school district bond The San Diego County Taxpayers’ Association (SDCTA) recently released its position on two local school district bonds. The SDCTA said it supports the San Dieguito Union High School District’s bond, Proposition AA, and opposes the Del Mar Union School District’s bond, Proposition CC. Of the 12 SDCTA criteria, DMUSD met three and SDUHSD met 10. Regarding its position on the San Dieguito Union High School District’s bond, the SDCTA stated: “SDCTA supports Proposition AA. The San Dieguito Union High School District’s proposed bond measure meets key provisions of SDCTA’s Bond Support Criteria. The application submitted by the district outlines the need of the district, plans and draft budgets for each of the proposed projects. Voters within the district will have an understanding of the program prior to the election, but other phases will be determined following the election. The descriptions of the projects submitted and outlined in the Master Plan have been thoroughly vetted, and no reason has been found that would prevent the district from executing the projects. The district has adopted SDCTA’s policy regarding the use of Capital Appreciation Bonds.” In response to the SDCTA’s position, San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Ken Noah said, “The support by the SDCTA was certainly one that we had hoped to obtain. It was reassuring to know that our proposal met their criteria, and that the request to be decided upon by the voters in this district is one that is thoughtful, reasonable and responsible.”

The San Dieguito Union High School District is proposing a $449 million General Obligation Bond which is estimated to increase the current tax rate by a maximum $25 per $100,000 of assessed valuation for properties within the district. Regarding its position on the Del Mar Union School District’s bond, the SDCTA stated: “SDCTA opposes the Del Mar Union School District’s proposed bond measure. The proposed bond measure fails to meet key provisions of SDCTA’s Bond Support Criteria. The district is proposing to use bond funds paid over the next four decades to support ongoing, short-term maintenance needs. Further, the district proposes using long-term bonds to pay for student devices that will only last three to five years. If the district is in need of budgetary relief, it should seek to streamline operations or renegotiate labor contracts to generate needed savings instead of relying on taxpayers paying for these needs for the next four decades.” The Del Mar Union School District is proposing a $76.8 million General Obligation bond which is estimated to increase the current tax rate by $8.44 per $100,000 of assessed valuation for properties within the district. In response to the SDCTA’s position, Del Mar Union School District Superintendent Holly McClurg said, “Unfortunately, the DMUSD was limited to providing only written documentation and was not able to present the bond program to the San Diego

Schools to get a variety of upgrades should bond pass, Del Mar superintendent says BY KAREN BILLING In the interest of being “communicative and responsive to what the community wants to know,” Del Mar Union School District Superintendent Holly McClurg presented, at the Sept. 19 school board meeting, some of the facility needs that would be financed should November’s Prop CC pass. Prop CC asks voters to approve the issuing of $76.8 million in bonds to improve technology, provide accessible classrooms for students with disabilities, fix leaky roofs and worn-out floors, and upgrade aging classrooms, libraries and school buildings. “Our large priority and need is to focus on facilities and infrastructure that make environments conducive for 21st century learning,” McClurg said, noting that it’s more than just putting technology devices in every student’s hands. “Even our newest schools are not designed for that learning environment.” About $15 million is projected for district-wide projects such as upgrading safety and security systems; upgrading current infrastructure to support high bandwidth; installing an improved data center and storage; providing 21s century technology tools to students; and building an early childhood center, including a special education pre-school. Each school site will get the individual upgrades they need in classroom technology improvements, outdoor student areas, and safety and security. When questioned about safety elements as the district just underwent a fencing project at all sites, Randy Wheaton, director of maintenance, said that it’s more

about protecting what the district owns with additional monitors and cameras. Carmel Del Mar, Del Mar Heights and Del Mar Hills are among the schools with the highest number of planned projects. An estimated $9.6 million is earmarked for Carmel Del Mar for a campus-wide modernization to replace the roof, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), interior/exterior paint, fire alarm, design and construct a food service center, redesign the library media center, install enhanced audio systems in the classrooms, install shade shelter in the lunch area and more. “[The school] looks good when you walk up but there are significant needs that need to be addressed,” McClurg said. With $9.2 million for Del Mar Heights and $8.7 for Del Mar Hills, projects include replacement of roofs, portable classrooms, play structures and water and sewer systems. Most schools share the same security and classroom technology improvements, although some have unique projects like installing shade shelter in the kindergarten lunch area at Ocean Air School, expanding the lunch area and adding water fountains and shade structures at Sage Canyon, and installing HVAC in the multi-use room at Torrey Hills. For the district’s strategic planning, the board is trying to predict what the district will need 25 years from now as well as the potential of a ninth school.

Del Mar supports investigation of San Onofre nuclear plant After hearing a detailed explanation from a San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station official about the tubing failure and radiation release that took place in January, as well as nearly a dozen heartfelt pleas from citizens to take a stand on the issue, the Del Mar City Council on Sept. 24 passed a resolution calling for a public Nuclear Regulatory Commission hearing to review the station’s license. Southern California Edison, which operates the station, needs to go the extra mile to re-establish public confidence, said Councilman Terry Sinnott.

“There is a public confidence issue,” he said. “The public is worried.” The resolution was adopted with some amendments, however, narrowing the scope of the issue in an effort to make it more effective in obtaining its goal — a transparent investigation.

Del Mar appoints new planning commissioners The Del Mar City Council voted unanimously on Sept. 24 to bring attorney Sam Blick and his decades of civic government experience to the Planning Commission. Mark Corcoran, who vied for a spot on the commission last year, won three votes from the council, earning him a seat as well. Blick, a Del Mar resident since 2008, is an attorney and founding partner of his Rancho Santa Fe firm that specializes in land use, real estate development, community interest developments, and golf course development. Blick started early in civic involvement when, at the age of 23, he became the assistant city attorney of Chula Vista (which advised that community’s planning commission). Corcoran, who has a master’s degree in city planning, works as a planning consultant for the City of San Diego, and is responsible for writing staff reports like those that get considered by city councils. He also served in the U.S. Navy. — Claire Harlin

Lightner, Ellis answer tough questions at City Council debate BY CLAIRE HARLIN Traffic, transit and development in the rapidly growing Carmel Valley/Del Mar Heights area were only a few issues that steered an animated debate between San Diego District 1 City Council candidates Ray Ellis (R) and incumbent Sherri Lightner (D) on Sept. 19 at a forum presented by the Carmel Valley News, Del Mar Times and La Jolla Light. More than 300 people packed the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art’s Sherwood Auditorium for the debate, in (L-R) Moderator Thad Kousser, San Diego District 1 which the candidates fielded City Council candidates Ray Ellis (R) and incumbent questions from both the audi- Sherri Lightner (D). Photo/Daniel Lew ence and the community newspapers’ staff — a means to test their prowess and display their very distinct philosophies. For four years, Lightner has served District 1, which encompasses Carmel Valley and Del Mar Heights. The former mechanical engineer is fighting a tough re-election campaign following a close June primary election, in which she garnered only 41.5 percent of the vote to trail Ellis’ 45.6-percent win. The race is crucial in that a win for Ellis, a Carmel Valley resident, would result in a shift to a Republican majority on the council. Just as the Interstate 5/SR-56 interchange project, meant to link I-5 South to 56 East and 56 West to I-5 North, was a big issue in the 2008 election, it resurfaced again as a prominent concern for both candidates. When asked what would be the best solution — a direct connector, auxiliary lane improvements, a hybrid or a hybrid with a flyover — Ellis said every alternative has potential problems, but the flyover would definitely disrupt the neighborhoods due to sound. Following the release of the project’s Environmental Impact Report (EIR) in June, Lightner has been vocal in her opposition to every alternative except one — no build. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is expected to make a decision on the preferred alternative by the end of the year. Lightner said her priority as District 1 Councilwoman has been to bring a neighborhood voice to City Hall, and that goal remains, along with improving water supply and bringing jobs to San Diego. Ellis said he has been dedicating his life to volunteer work for the past six years, working with organizations such as Voices for Children and Second Chance, and his priority is helping to solve the city’s financial problems. As president of the city’s pension board, he said he has seen first-hand how San Diego’s pension liabilities have been draining the budget, and that’s why pension reform is a top priority. “I’ve been working on pension reform since before Lightner was on the City Council,” said Ellis, adding that Lightner should have worked harder on the issue and put it on the ballot. Lightner replied, “I’m the only one up here who’s actually implemented pension reform … That’s why we’ve saved the city a billion dollars since I’ve been elected.” She also said retiree healthcare reform that took place during her term resulted in more than $800 million in savings to the city. Lighter became passionate when the subject of public transit came up — and she said she’s been working especially hard to put more transit in place in Carmel Valley due to both the lack of current transit options and the exponential growth of the community. Lighter was a driving force behind securing funding for a senior shuttle launched in Carmel Valley in February. She has also been advocating more east-to-west routes, and was able to secure both a route from Solana Beach to 4S Ranch and a route from Rancho Bernardo to Qualcomm Stadium. “If you can’t tell, I really like transit,” Lightner said. “That’s where our future is.” While neither candidate took a firm position on the future use of the San Diego Polo See DEBATE, page 14

DEBATE continued from page 1 join the Board of Supervisors for the first time in 16 years. All five of the current board members are Republican, white, and graduates of San Diego State University. Roberts, a Democrat and Solana Beach city councilman, is running against Danon, a Republican and chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Brian Bilbray. Danon beat Roberts 33 to 31 percent in the June primary, but at Monday’s debate, Roberts cited a poll he commissioned as indicating he is now in the lead. The 3rd Supervisorial District includes Carmel Valley, Solana Beach and Del Mar, and stretches inland to encompass Rancho Bernardo and Escondido. Danon, who spoke first, immediately went on the attack, criticizing Roberts for voting in favor of a business license fee and other fee increases in Solana Beach. Among Danon’s key issues is streamlining the county’s permit process for businesses, and ending a $5

million neighborhood investment program that has been called a “slush fund” by critics because each supervisor controls a $1 million share of the money. Roberts touted his own business experience, including his work as an executive with defense contractor SAIC. He linked Danon to the inability of Congress to deal with federal debt and budget issues, and said Danon has failed to support the popular network of community planning groups that advise the Board of Supervisors on land use issues. “Why can’t Congress get its act together? Why can’t Steve tell his boss what to do back there?” Roberts said. “Dave, if you wanted to run against Congressman Brian Bilbray, you had that chance two years ago,” Danon responded. While Danon ridiculed the use of the neighborhood investment money for grants to arts groups such as the San Diego Opera and Old Globe Theater — recommended by Slater-Price, who has endorsed Roberts —

Roberts said the money is important to such groups as the Boys and Girls Club and the San Diego Burn Institute. Roberts said the program should be maintained, as long as it is run in a “fair, open and transparent manner.” The two candidates also clashed over transportation issues. Danon said Interstate 5 must be widened because high-tech and biotech firms and other businesses need to be able to efficiently move their products. He said, however, that he also supports mass transit and livable, walkable communities, with plenty of bike paths. But Roberts — echoing the concerns of many North County residents who have battled with Caltrans over controversial plans to widen I-5 - said the county needs representatives “who understand we can’t pave our way out of our transportation problems.” “I want to make San Diego County the bike capital of the world,” Roberts said. Throughout the debate, discussion came back to jobs

and the economy, and which candidate has the best vision and credentials to make a difference. Danon said the county needs a “culture revolution” to become more business friendly and dramatically cut down waiting times for permits. Supervisors should leverage resources in Washington, D.C. and Sacramento, and work closely with industry and the defense community, he said. “You need a strong advocate,” to identify and execute on economic opportunities, which will create jobs and reduce poverty, Danon said. Roberts said he has the right mix of business and government experience across such industries as high-tech, real estate and health care. He’s also got the right temperament, he said, to work collaboratively with a variety of public and private entities. “I pull people together, that’s my reputation,” he said. “The newspaper says I’m likeable, that’s probably one of my best traits.”


McAllister said districts can limit the maturity of government code bonds from 40 to 20 years to bring it in line with education code and reduce the maximum allowable interest rate down from 12 percent to 8 percent. “We’d like to issue legislation that calls for everyone who issues debt has a collable feature, the ability to refinance the debt, giving more options,” McAllister said. He noted that one local district is stuck for 40 years with no ability to do anything, no options. The 4 to 1 ratio he feels is a prudent ratio and one that they would like to push for. McAllister also recommended that written statements be signed by school boards and the County for term structures longer than 25 years. Trustee Doug Rafner said he’d like to see all of the points McAllister raised reflected in the Del Mar school district’s new policy and resolution. Staff will revisit the policy and it is expected to be approved at a special meeting before the absentee ballots are mailed on Oct. 8. The San Dieguito Union School District, which also has a bond on the November ballot, approved a similar policy on the use of CABs at the district board’s Aug. 16 meeting.

because of the Poway Unified School District’s situation, but McAllister said it has become a statewide issue. He said there are cases that districts have used CABs that won’t be paid back to the mid-point of this century, heaping debt on generations to come. “We talked about pushing for legislation to bring things into normalcy,” McAllister said. His office wants to promote transparency and openness as a wise way for districts to do business. Changing the legislature will update the California Government and Education codes to bring a more conservative approach to protect taxpayers and citizens. “We’re not opposed to CABs, they are recognized as a valued debt instrument that does play a role in a well-managed debt portfolio,” McAllister said. “But some can lead to issues that we’d rather not face,” McAllister said CAB characteristics that can result in a higher debt burden include term structures longer than 25 years, interest rates higher than 12 percent for California Government Code and 8 percent for the Education Code, debt repayment ratios greater than 4 to 1 and no prepayment clauses.

CALTRANS continued from page 1 cludes more than adding four carpool lanes — for a total of 12 lanes — between La Jolla and Oceanside. “This is not a highway-centric solution,” said Allan Kosup, Caltrans I-5 Corridor director, in brief remarks to the crowd of about 50. Instead, they said, the project will include rail improvements such as double-tracking, enhancements to North County lagoons, bicycle paths along the entire 27 miles of the project, and pedestrian walkways. “Our goal is to enhance the environment in the community while trying to provide congestion relief,” said Arturo Jacobo, Caltrans project manager. Those who didn’t attend the meeting can view the environmental documents and provide comments at the project website, In preparing the supplemental EIR, Caltrans commissioned hydraulic and other studies to determine how best to protect and enhance the health of the lagoons. The study found that longer bridges over three lagoons — San Elijo, Batiquitos and Buena Vista — are needed to provide better water flow in and out of the lagoons. Bridges across Penasquitos, San Dieguito and Agua Hedionda were found to be adequate, Jacobo said. Caltrans has also acquired 100 acres of land along the lagoons, which will be preserved as open space to compensate for environmental impacts of the I-5 project. Planners have also added bicycle lanes along the entire project corridor; some will be within the freeway right-of-way, while others will be on local streets, Jacobo said. Construction on the road improvements and environmental mitigation could begin in 2014, pending approval by the California Coastal Commission and other agencies, Jacobo said. The road portion of the project will cost $3.5 billion, while the total project, in-

‘Our goal is to enhance the environment in the community while trying to provide congestion relief.’ ARTURO JACOBO

Caltrans project manager cluding rail improvements, is pegged at $6.5 billion. The estimated completion date for the entire project is 2035. Reaction to the new project details was generally positive from those who attended the meeting. “We think it’s a major step to improve the health of Batiquitos Lagoon and we’re ecstatic about that,” said Jim Brown of Encinitas, a member of the Batiquitos Lagoon Foundation. He said the foundation is concerned about the impacts of construction on the lagoon, however. And Solana Beach Councilwoman Lesa Heebner said, “I’m pleased with what I see. They responded well to the concerns many of us had about the health of our lagoons.” Heebner questioned Caltrans staff about a planned access ramp at Manchester Avenue, which she said is a concern to the community. Jacobo said the ramp has been redesigned to go below the freeway, rather than above it, and that a planned park-and-ride lot at Manchester has been downsized from 471 to 150 spaces. Betsy Cotton of Encinitas said she attended the meeting to find out more about the project. She said she appreciates the efforts of Caltrans to plan the project, but wants to see more emphasis on public transportation. “I just feel badly that so much real estate is being given up to cars,” she said. “If everything keeps going the way it is, it’ll be one giant freeway from coast to coast.”

Education Matters/Opinion/Commentary

Driving home a point BY MARSHA SUTTON Accompanying my son to a two-hour Marsha Sutton presentation on safe driving was not my idea of a good time, but attendance is required by the San Dieguito Union High School District for both student and parent, for students to receive a high school campus parking permit. I knew what they would tell him, just what we’ve been telling him for ages – the usual admonitions against texting, cell phone use, drugs, alcohol, speeding and distracted driving. Not that those aren’t valuable lessons to hear. But since dire warnings tend to lose their punch after the 30th or 40th time, I thought he would just tune them out. And I’d be bored to tears. I couldn’t have been more wrong. There were tears alright, but not from boredom. This was a powerful presentation – full of jokes and laughter, somber moments, an engaged audience, and a dynamic California Highway Patrol officer who connected with the kids on all levels. He packed a wallop with his photos and videos that, sure enough, presented the expected warnings in living (and sometimes not so living) color. But the difference was they were delivered in ways that captured our attention and had an impact. Called Start Smart, the program was developed by the CHP and is a free two-hour driver safety education class that targets new and future drivers ages 15 to 20. Students must attend with a parent or guardian. Beginning in 2011, SDUHSD required attendance at a Start Smart presentation, to obtain a campus parking permit. The previous year, the program was voluntary. But because so many parents “loved it” and “thought it helped inform kids with real information instead of the online classes kids take today,” SDUHSD associate superintendent Rick Schmitt said the district decided to make it mandatory. The class goes beyond the minimal driver education programs by offering in-depth lessons on accident avoidance, distracted driving, drunk driving and basic road responsibilities. CHP Officer Eric Newbury began by listing what teens worldwide said were their top distractions. Among the usual assortment of driving diversions – eating, boisterous conversation, music, texting – was this: having sex

in the car. “You can’t tell me that’s not a distraction,” observed Newbury dryly, to awkward laughter from the teens and embarrassed groans from the adults. Thus were we warmed up for an entertaining morning. Subsequent slides with disturbing statistics punctured our brief interlude with frivolity. The charts and graphs showing how teenagers have more crashes, many lethal, than any other age group, were sobering. Perhaps the most heartbreaking video was the story of a teenage boy whose girlfriend was driving when she became distracted by a friend in the back seat and hit a tree head-on, killing her boyfriend instantly. No drugs or alcohol were involved. This was a sober driver who was exceeding the speed limit, became distracted, crashed the car, and killed someone she loved. Listening to the driver speak about how she could have avoided the catastrophe that killed her boyfriend and changed her life forever, was agonizing. How does one recover from that? How many years of therapy does it take to get past the horrific finality of causing a preventable death? DriveCam Several of the videos shown were taken from DriveCam, a camera mounted inside the car that is activated by sudden, erratic movements. “The impact of the DriveCam video-based driving feedback program has been repeatedly measured by independent traffic safety researchers and shown to have an immediate, dramatic and lasting change,” said Bill Carpenter, head of the consumer division of the San Diego-based company. DriveCam [], which costs about $500 including installation, records only those incidents triggered by a driver’s abrupt or risky driving patterns or movements. It is not spying or surveillance, Carpenter said. Rather, it provides a “report card” of sorts that gives parents instant feedback of their young driver’s behind-the-wheel progress and missteps. Advocates say teens are motivated not to set off DriveCam and drive more cautiously as a result. “As a parent we want to hand over the keys – and wish we had a magic wand that would put us back into the passenger seat for just those few precious coachable moments. Now we do,” Carpenter said. “You wouldn’t put a baby in a car anymore without a car seat, and parents need to use the same safety precautions when putting their ‘babies’ behind the wheel,” said Del Mar

resident Debbie Mark who called DriveCam “the car seat for teens.” Experts agree that speeding, inattention, peer pressure, alcohol and particularly inexperience contribute to the dangers associated with young drivers. According to “Crash Facts” from the Centers for Disease Control, teen drivers are four times likelier to crash than older drivers, nearly twothirds of teen crash deaths happen when a new driver has one or more teen passengers, and night-time fatal crash rates for 16-year-olds are nearly twice as high as daytime rates. [We learned that the term “car accident” is a misnomer – collisions are almost always avoidable and are not “accidents.”] A 2009 American Automobile Association study found that the majority of people killed in teen crashes are passengers and other drivers, not teen drivers. According to the Calif. Dept. of Motor Vehicles, traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers across the country. For both sexes, drivers ages 16 to 19 have the highest average annual crash and traffic violation rates of any other age group – nearly three times higher. Driving with passengers increases the fatality risk more than three times for teen drivers, and the relative risk of a fatal crash increases as the number of passengers increases. The DMV lists these major concerns for young drivers who have yet to acquire the experience and ability to make clear judgments:

•poor hazard detection •underestimating crash risks •overestimating their ability to avoid threats •risk-taking due to overconfidence •not wearing seat belts •no mastery of basic vehicle handling skills •alcohol or drug impairment •distractions from passengers •night-time driving Baby rattlesnakes Calling his teenage audience “baby rattlesnakes,” which are considered by many to be more dangerous than adult snakes because they are more likely to deliver a full, uncontrolled dose of venom with minimal provocation, Newbury interspersed the comic with the tragic. Much of his presentation consisted of tips and advice, especially this: “Stupid is out there – look out for Stupid around every corner.” And advice for the boys: “You will show off for girls and do idiotic things with moving vehicles. It’s testosterone. It’s part of your make-up. Resist the temptation!” This was punctuated by Newbury’s personal anecdotes, tales of his own antics as a youngster doing dim-witted stunts in his vehicle, for which he not-so-proudly displayed the scars to prove it. Drivers can expect to be ticketed when violating traffic laws, Newbury said, because taxpayers pay him to do just that – that is, remove bad drivers from the road and minimize the harm they can cause others. There was no more gutwrenching moment than hearing Newbury speak of having to tell parents their child died in a car crash. Burying a child is a catastrophe unimaginable, he said. To paraphrase:

Trial date set for CV mother accused of drowning her son BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A Jan. 14 trial date was set Sept. 19 for a Carmel Valley woman accused of drowning her 4-year-old autistic son in a bathtub, then driving his lifeless body to a police substation, where she allegedly admitted the crime. Patricia Corby, 36, faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of murder and assault charges in the March 31 death of her son, Daniel. She pleaded not guilty Sept. 19 at her Superior Court arraignment. Corby’s next court date is a Nov. 7 readiness conference. According to testimony at a day-long preliminary hearing earlier this month, Corby contemplated suicide before allegedly holding her son down in several inches of water in the family’s Carmel Valley condominium. District Attorney’s Office Investigator Walter Escobar testified that Corby told him that her son — diagnosed with a high likelihood for autism — had made strides in his battle with the developmental disorder but not enough to satisfy her. ``She felt like her whole existence was dedicated to her child,’’ Escobar testified. ``She felt like she had no life. She wanted Daniel to be normal.’’ Escobar testified that Corby told him that she tried to drown herself after she killed her son, but couldn’t. Corby realized what she did wrong and drove to the police substation four miles away to turn herself in, Escobar said Corby told him. The victim’s father was at work at the time of his son’s death.


“You don’t know what love is until you’ve had a child. You may think you love your girlfriend or boyfriend, you love your parents and siblings, you love your dog, and you love your wife. I love my wife dearly. But there’s something that kicks in when you have a child of your own. You’ll do anything – anything – for that little bundle of baby. It’s a part of you. To have to tell a parent at 2 a.m. that their son or daughter is never coming home again, it’s brutal. Children bury their parents, not the other way around.” To drive home the point (no pun intended), Newbury showed us pictures of his father Frank who was killed in a collision when Frank was 24 and Eric was 3. “Meet my dad,” he said, showing us a photo of Frank as a young man – happy, smiling, full of life. He was killed by a motorist who ran a stop sign, depriving Eric’s mother of a husband and Eric of a father who was missing for all the proud moments in Eric’s life that give every father immeasurable joy.

‘Bike 4 Mike’ ride to raise funds to help find treatments, cure for ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease •N ov. 4 event is also a celebration of “The Godfather” Mike Ramirez BY KAREN BILLING The first annual “Bike 4 Mike” fundraising bike ride will be held on Sunday, Nov. 4, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds to raise money for Team Godfather, an organization devoted to finding treatment and a cure for ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease. The event is in celebration of “The Godfather,” Mike Ramirez, a local resident who died in April 2012 at age 56 from the devastating disease. The event will begin and end at the fairgrounds with three different distances for riders to choose: 10, 25 or 50 miles on the scenic coastline. The 10-mile and 25-mile courses will be relatively flat while the 50-mile course will feature some challenging hills. Additionally, for those not as comfortable riding the road, there will be a spin bike class at the fairgrounds run by Solana Beach fitness studio BodyROK. ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a progressive disorder that causes permanent paralysis and destroys nerve cells that control muscle movement. Some 5,600 Americans are diagnosed every year and people typically live three to five years after diagnosis. There is currently no cure or treatment. “The remarkable thing about Mike was that he really felt that God chose him, that it was his destiny, that it was meant to be that he would be a link to finding a cure,” said Scott McCauley, one of Mike’s friends and event sponsor. “I truly believe that destiny, that’s why I have been so passionate about it.” Greg Sacks, one of Mike’s best friends and a Team Godfather board member, said everyone is passionate about the event and the cause because of Mike and who he was. Ramirez was the executive vice president, San Diego south regional manager and head of the corporate banking group for Pacific Western Bank. The University of San Diego graduate competed in marathons and triathlons and was an avid golfer and cyclist. He was always active—he studied karate, practiced yoga and played in the Over the Line beach volleyball tournament. Mike was diagnosed with ALS in September of 2009. “It’s a pretty devastating diagnosis,” said Sacks. “It’s one of those hypothetical questions people ask themselves,

“The Godfather” Mike Ramirez Photo courtesy of you’re given two years to live, what do you want to do with the rest of your life?” Sacks said Mike and his family spent time processing the diagnosis and what it meant, but just three weeks later, they fundraised for and participated in the Walk to Defeat ALS in Mission Bay. More than 250 friends and family showed up to support him and he was able to raise over $3,500. Mike, a father of two children, Michael Jr. and Colleen,

decided that he would devote the time he had left to fundraising and helping find a cure, founding Team Godfather with his wife Maureen. The organization has since put on successful events at the Belly Up and the Nine, Wine and Dine ladies golf tournament that raised $13,000 in its second year this year. McCauley had become good friends with Mike and helped remodel his home to make it easier for him to get around. He had the idea for the bike ride in January Scott McCauley and and Mike was on board with the Greg Sacks plan. “Kevin has taken this thing to an incredible level with his effort and passion,” Sacks said. Kevin’s company, McCauley Builders, is a sponsor of the event, along with his wife Debbie and daughter Lauren McCauley Elliott of Coldwell Banker and Fairbanks Ranch Plaza’s Ranch Cycles. Participants will receive a Team Godfather shirt and prizes will be awarded for top fundraisers. They hope to fill the fairground’s Plaza de Mexico with people for a fiesta lunch and party after the rides. “Everything we do for Team Godfather is all based on fun,” McCauley said. “Mike inspired a lot of people and coming to our event, you can see it. He never felt sorry for himself. He said ‘Let’s turn this into something positive’ and that has carried through.” “He is always our inspiration,” said Sacks. “What drives us is that this disease is curable, it’s just going to take time and an incredible amount of money. It takes private funding to get the work and research done and that’s our commitment.” An open house at Ranch Cycles will be held on Thursday, Oct. 11, at 6 p.m. Come by and meet the sponsors and find out more about the event.

POLO continued from page 1 to several inquiries seeking the status of the lease issue. In August, Mel Millstein, an aide to San Diego First District Councilwoman Sherri Lightner, told attendees at a meeting of the Carmel Valley Community Planning Group that the RFP for the polo club property had been delayed as city officials seek to determine how a realignment project on El Camino Real will affect the parcel. The polo club property is located at the corner of Via De La Valle and El Camino Real. This week, polo club president Ron Bonaguidi said his group was notified by the city’s real estate department that it should get some information about the lease process by the end of this month. “We’re hopeful, I’m attending church on a regular basis,” Bonaguidi said. Since its lease expired in March, the club has occupied the property on a month-to-month basis, Bonaguidi said. At the time its lease expired, the club was required to pay the city $9,842 per month for the use of the

property. In addition to the club’s own polo events, the property is subleased to other groups for such events as lacrosse and soccer tournaments. Because the club is on a month-to-month basis, Bonaguidi said, it has been unable to give a firm answer to the outside groups about the availability of the property for events scheduled early next year. Bonaguidi said the El Camino realignment project will encroach on the polo club property, but engineers have not determined specifically how much property will be needed.

TAXPAYER continued from page 3 County Taxpayers Association. Had DMUSD been able to present the bond program, it is believed it would have been evident that the program addresses long-term facility and infrastructure needs. It is discouraging that funding for student devices was highlighted and yet devices would comprise a relatively small part of the bond measure. DMUSD has long-term facility needs that the bond program addresses.” Suzanne Hall, co-chair

of the Quality Schools for Del Mar committee, said, “The taxpayers association is a county-wide group. The benefits of Prop CC are felt locally, in a community that values quality education. I believe that residents of Del Mar and Carmel Valley would agree that keeping cuts as far away from the classroom as possible is an important part of ensuring that our children receive the best possible public school education. “The taxpayers association ruling does not appear to take into account historical aspects of our district, including the fact that the DMUSD has never asked its constituents for a bond before. It does not appear to acknowledge that education funding at the State level has created a crises for all public schools, to which the DMUSD is not immune. The ruling does not address the impact to the taxpayer, and particularly the taxpayer concerned with his or her property values, should our schools’ academic excellence decline because of cuts to the classroom.” For links to full reports on both bonds, visit: •SDCTA on Del Mar Union School District bond, Proposition CC: Uploads/Documents/Proposition%20CC%20Del%20 Mar%20Union%20Staff%20 Report.PUBLIC.pdf •SDCTA on San Dieguito Union High School District bond, Proposition AA: Uploads/Documents/ San%20Dieguito%20 UHSD%20Staff%20Report%20FINAL.pdf


continued from page 5 Club fields, located at the corner of El Camino Real and Via de la Valle, both recognized the importance of the property in its current use. In comparison to other sporting events, Ellis said the San Diego Surf Cup soccer tournament has one of the biggest economic impacts on the city, bringing in revenues that are comparable to that of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon. The lease on the property expired earlier this year, and the bidding process was supposed to open up to potential tenants, but the city put the process on hold, pending a conclusion on the El Camino Real re-alignment project — which would affect the size of the property for lease. (Note: just before presstime, this newspaper received word that the San


Diego Polo Club should get some information about the lease process by the end of this month. See story on page 1 in this issue.) Lightner said holding up the Polo Club lease process is “inappropriate.” The use of the fields has been a concern for local environmentalists and the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority, and while Lighter acknowledged the environmental group would like to have the property, she said “the polo games are pretty amazing.” Both Ellis and Lightner said they do not support Kilroy Realty’s mixed-use One Paseo project in its current form. Ellis said the size of the 1.8 million-square-foot project, which is currently under environmental review, is “way too robust for the community.” “My wife and I are over there at least every other day and understand the impact on the community,” Ellis said. “There are still questions that need to be answered. There are more questions than answers.” The project, planned for Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real, requires the alteration of a number of planning documents, including the com-

munity plan, and Lightner said that has residents rightfully concerned. She said she has been working with the developers, who are revising the plan due to community pressure, and her final decision will do no other than reflect what the community wants. The candidates had a slightly different view on the state of the city’s finances. Lightner said the city has a surplus that has made it able to do things like start a police academy and increase lifeguard staffing, while cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco face millions in deficits. Ellis, however, said the surplus was a short-term situation and it’s now over, so the city needs to take charge. “We have the tools to have a better bottom line, but we need to be more active in engaging that,” he said. While Lightner opposed a special tax district that would fund the $520 million expansion of the San Diego Convention Center, she said she supports expanding the center — and can’t wait for it. “I just have questions with the financing,” she said. “I’m not sure about a

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

If you support revitalization, vote for Prop J Frank Chisari favors a “Bottom-Up” approach to revitalization, and cites the 1975 Community Plan in support of that concept. [“Why I can’t vote for the Del Mar Village Specific Plan,” Del Mar Times, Sept. 20, 2012, page 18.] By contrast, he characterizes the Village Specific Plan (Prop J) as “TopDown,” charging that the City devised the VSP in response to desires of commercial property owners. Before thinking about what his “Bottom-Up” approach might look like, it’s worth studying the VSP and the Community Plan in a bit more detail. Thanks, in particular, to the Herculean efforts of Planning Director Kathy Garcia, the city did its utmost to incorporate “Bottom-Up” elements into the VSP. The problem was that many of the potential “Bottoms” decided early on that they would prefer to attack the VSP, rather than throw their weight behind a “Bottom-Up” version. In 1975, there was no shortage of “Bottoms” among the working groups that created the Community Plan, but without the “Top-Down” leadership of Dave Keeling, it’s problematic whether the Plan that we now take for granted would have materialized. A successful plan requires both “Tops” and “Bottoms.” Dr. Chisari recommends that the City Council “create committees of citizen vol-

unteers,” but where would those volunteers come from? Very few stepped forward to participate in the VSP process; what has happened since then to motivate a bunch of residents to tackle the thorny issues of revitalization? And where will the money come from to provide the staff time that will be necessary to convert volunteer thoughts into the legal prose needed for land-use regulations? Don’t forget that the City staff has just been through this exercise with the VSP. How often can the revitalization movement go to the well on this? And who is going to pay for it? Those of us who have been working on revitalization for over a decade now, are well aware that if it were a simple issue, it would have been resolved by now. The number of moving parts is not going to decrease, and neither will the different competing interests. If the residents of Del Mar believe that revitalization is a good idea, they will vote for Prop J. If they want to stick with an increasingly dysfunctional status quo, they’ll follow Dr. Chisari’s example. John Kerridge Del Mar

The Village Specific Plan for revitalization: It’s time for Del Mar to take control of its future As residents, former council members and mayors, we have been involved with efforts to restore our downtown to meet the objectives outlined in the community plan of 1976. There has been a great deal of community input and discussions over the years, with plan after plan created and subsequently shelved. The time for planning is over. We finally have a well thought out document, the Village Specific Plan, that uses creativity, balance, new opportunities and citizen-inspired changes to build a plan that will slowly and carefully improve the quality of life for everyone in Del Mar. We have heard many comments about the plan from neighbors, and they vary widely depending on personal interest and perspective. Will everyone like every piece of the plan? Of course not. That never happens in Del Mar. Is there something positive for everyone in the plan? We think there is: better pedestrian experiences, safer traffic flow, better opportunities for resident serving businesses, and increased parking availability to name just a few. The Village Specific Plan was vetted through 90 meetings and workshops to get thorough community input, and the plan has been dramatically changed and improved as a result of that feedback. While the plan appears ambitious, it also contains many features designed to ensure that the plan is implemented over time in a way that avoids unintended or negative consequences. We are at a critical juncture in Del Mar, and the vote on this plan in November will determine what Del Mar becomes in the foreseeable future. We encourage you to examine the facts of the plan and to base your decision on those facts rather than the typical campaign rhetoric surrounding most issues this election year. With facts in hand, we believe you will decide that the positive changes offered by this plan far outweigh the alternative of doing nothing. There is simply no way to keep things the same as they have always been. Do we let Del Mar go the way of many other beach communities where everyone drives through our town on their way to the beach? Or do we finally take serious, deliberate steps toward implementing the vision of our community plan? Lives change and circumstances change, and we believe that Del Mar must define the changes in our own way or be changed by outside forces over which we have no control. You get to decide this November. We encourage you to vote yes for Proposition J, and let Del Mar continue to control its future for the benefit of current and future generations.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

Don’t relegate downtown to another 30 years of stagnation The Village Specific Plan is designed to encourage re-development of downtown Del Mar, especially the south side of town which is under-utilized and, in many cases, is an eyesore and about as pedestrian friendly as the bluffs below the train tracks. It is time to make some changes which will improve the south side of downtown similar to the areas on 15th Street, which both the proponents and opponents all think is the right size and scale and ambiance. Opponents of Prop J argue it will allow too much density in downtown. I see it as just a 28 percent increase over what is allowed today, which seems reasonable, especially in light of the fact that the current zoning has produced stagnation. This 28 percent increase equates to approximately 150,000 sq. ft. in total, which is spread over 16 blocks over a 30-year period. Furthermore, this is a maximum, which means it will probably never be built to that extent. Even if all 150,000 sq. ft. of this additional

density occurred between 9th and 14th Streets along both sides of Camino del Mar, which counting both sides of the street is a 10 block stretch, I do not see it as an overbuilt situation but a welcome one. Over two years, the city carefully analyzed impacts and struck a healthy balance between revitalization and preservation. That’s why the plan was approved unanimously by the City Council and Planning Commission. The City Council approved the VSP with comfort knowing that this build-out can only occur after strengthened Design Review Board approval of each project and a periodic review of impacts by the City Council. Prop J finally gives us a chance to achieve the Community Plan’s long-promised goal of a resident-serving, pedestrianfriendly downtown. Don’t let the usual naysayers relegate downtown to another 30 years of stagnation. Al Corti Del Mar

Vote for Proposition J — Don’t miss this opportunity After years of inaction and steady decline in our downtown, I am grateful that the citizens of Del Mar will finally be able to vote for a solution with Proposition J on the November ballot. Prop J will lessen traffic congestion and neighborhood impacts, provide a pedestrian-friendly village, and boost economic activity for our businesses downtown. That is why the plan was adopted unanimously by the Planning Commission and City Council, and why most Del Mar residents are coming together in support of the plan. Please don’t be misled by the nay-sayers. They have no solution to our existing problems. All they offer is more of the same. The Village Specific Plan, or Prop J, is a community-based plan which can pave the way to enhance this wonderful ecosystem of trees, ocean views, lively and economically viable businesses, downtown residential and cultural activities — all meandering down a real “Main Street.” This chance will not come again for a long time.

Proposition CC is an investment in our community and our children As taxpayers in the Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD), and as parents of children — past, present, and future — in DMUSD schools, it is important to understand why Proposition CC, the general obligation bond for DMUSD, will be on our upcoming election ballots. With over 110 school-bond and parcel-tax measures on November ballots across the state, and at least 37 similar measures on this past June’s ballots, as a tax-paying electorate, we have to ask ourselves, “What has happened to state funding for education?” Clearly, the deficit spending that the DMUSD and surrounding school districts, such as Cardiff, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, and San Diego Unified, are experiencing is not unique. Most California school districts are trying to find steady fiscal footing in a time of financial volatility. The DMUSD has been diligent and responsible in its spending, but the reality is that funding is not keeping pace with the educational programs we have worked so hard to build and be proud of. In response, Proposition CC provides DMUSD voters an opportunity to help protect the education of our children and the value of our community. In an effort to better comprehend our present circumstances, it will help to understand how we got here. In 2009, there were many indications that this was the future we were facing. The DMUSD Board of Trustees called for a committee of parents, staff members, and administrators to meet regularly, examine the financial health of the district, and make recommendations based on their findings. This group of 19 was known as the Financial Task Force (FTF). While they tried to remain optimistic, the prospect of deficit spending was very real then, and they recommended that “if basic-aid funding is greatly decreased, or eliminated, then the reserve should be spent incrementally to preserve programs.” (DMUSD FTF Final Report, April 30, 2010) Following the recommendations of the FTF, the district has been conservatively spending our historically healthy reserves for the past two years because basic-aid funding— sourced from the surplus of our local property taxes—has continued to decline. DMUSD’s basic-aid status necessitates that it provide a “fair share” payment back to Sacramento, and this “fair share” cost has been steadily rising since it was established years ago. In fact, our most recent “fair share” sum was $2 million, which was also the amount of our deficit expenditure last year. If this pattern continues — declining property tax surplus, increased “fair share” amounts, and unreliable funding from Sacramento — estimates are that our deficit spending could be about $4.5 million this year. That’s if Governor Brown’s tax initiatives pass in November. If those initiatives don’t pass, DMUSD faces a deficit of approximately $6.5 million for this current year. Projections for the 2013-2014 school year are worse. And the reality is that these future projections of deficit spending could jeopardize our district’s financial standing if we don’t have an alternative source of funding in place. As Marsha Sutton wrote in March of 2011, we are witnessing “the frightful decimation of the education budget in Sacramento.” (Sutton, “Education Decimation,” The Carmel Valley News, March 10, 2011) DMUSD neighbors: as we head into this election season, for $8.44 per $100,000 of assessed property value, we can lessen the impact of this decimation. For the average homeowner, this $76.8 million bond amounts to $65 per year, all of which is tax-deductible. We do have a choice. As we’ve seen, the mitigating steps that the FTF recommended won’t carry us through indefinitely. Governor Brown’s tax initiatives, whether passed or not, won’t help us provide ongoing, quality educational programs for our children. We need to vote “Yes” on Proposition CC to fund our local schools with our local dollars because the funding from Sacramento has become unpredictable at best. It will ensure that our general fund is used to strengthen our local schools and keep our neighborhoods desirable. While many other districts have placed bonds on their communities’ ballots, it is important to note that DMUSD has never asked taxpayers to fund a bond. Not in the aftermath of Black Monday in October of 1987 when markets crashed and property values languished for years, and not in 2008 when some surrounding districts, including Rancho Santa Fe, placed general obligation bonds on local ballots. The DMUSD is placing the bond before voters now because this bond is truly needed to preserve our curriculum and our programs, our jewel in the crown. It will counteract the uncertainty that our district currently faces, no matter what happens in Sacramento. It is an investment in our district, our community, and, most importantly, our children.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

For a healthy prospering Del Mar, vote ‘Yes’ on Prop J

Leaky roofs or modern with no serious defects

It is amazing to me how Prop J has caused so much angst in this town, especially since it is suppose to enhance and enrich this community. I suppose it could be contributed to false statements made by those who oppose revitalization. For instance, a statement made on the “No on J” website stated that there are no vacancies in the City of Del Mar and that the city is doing just fine. Walking the city the other day, it was noted just on 10th St. and 11th St. there are 11 vacancies located within those buildings alone. It is not known how many other vacancies there are for potential businesses since I quit counting. Another statement made by the No on J website, which said that roundabouts are dangerous and one had to be removed due to the danger, came from an article written 12 years ago in the community of Palm Beach, Fla. Anyone can find anything on the web to prove a point but what needs to be clear is that the information cited has to be current, true and appropriate to the situation. Del Mar is dying a slow death. With all the vacancies located throughout the city, how much in sales tax revenues are being lost? How can the city encourage new businesses to participate in Del Mar if it has old ideas and is unwilling to invite new businesses to thrive? What happens when the revenues of the

At the upcoming November election, Del Mar residents will vote on Proposition CC which calls for borrowing $76.8 million by the Del Mar Union School District to improve and expand school facilities. The borrowing is to be paid for with a new property tax assessment which will cost each residence $84 per year on average. This may surprise some who remember that just two short years ago there was discussion about closing facilities because Del Mar had too many schools. At that time an advisory committee was formed to assess current facilities and Del Mar’s future needs. The results of that report stand in stark contrast to the pleas being used today to justify a tax hike. In January 2012, the District Advisory Committee for DMUSD examined capacity and enrollment trends. Here’s a quote from their findings: The DMUSD 7-11 DAC reviewed historical enrollment trends and the most recent enrollment projections. The finding was that there was excess seating capacity across the district, with 1,235 empty seats spread over the eight elementary schools in the DMUSD. (According to the committee, Del Mar schools have space for 1,235 more students as currently configured which represent 23 percent excess capacity over current 2012 enrollment. The committee also looked at enrollment projections and maximum capacity. Maximum capacity achieved through reconfiguration was estimated to be 6,932 students. By 2018, they estimate 5,389 students which would still leave ample room. Enrollment could grow 50 percent from 2012 numbers and DMUSD would still have available space without constructing new buildings. The ballot languages says that borrowing will be used to repair and maintain the dilapidated conditions of DMUSD schools: “To protect quality education, provide

safe and modern schools and create budget savings, shall Del Mar Union School District improve instructional technology and classroom computer systems; provide accessible classrooms for students with disabilities; fix leaky roofs and worn-out floors; and upgrade aging classrooms, libraries and school buildings by issuing $76.8 million in bonds at legal rates, with independent oversight, no money for District administration, and all money staying local?” This language stands in stark contrast to the findings of the district report of two years earlier when the facilities got high marks: “The schools in the DMUSD vary in age, from 45 to two years old, and all are in good repair and fully functional. The two oldest schools, Del Mar Hills and Del Mar Heights, have been recently modernized. The next oldest school, Carmel Del Mar, while showing its age somewhat, is due to be modernized in 2017. All other schools are modern with no serious defects or deficiencies other than a lack of storage space, which seems to be an endemic problem at all schools.” The typical interest component for a bond will be two-three times the principle amount taking the total obligation to more than $200 million. This is an enormous financial commitment spanning several decades. Residents should not be misled by hyperbolic ballot language and mischaracterization of needs and facilities. DMUSD official internal report reveals the truth that the current facilities are “modern” with “no serious defects” and have ample capacity for even the most wildly optimistic growth. The only serious defect is in DMUSD’s justification for hundreds of millions in higher taxes. The official report is here: DMUSD-report Michael Robertson

city dwindle to the point that the City of Del Mar can no longer maintain its infrastructure properly or continue to pay the needed amount of City employees to run the city or maintain our beautiful beaches? Does the County of San Diego take over? I don’t know. The Del Mar City Council and staff have spent a lot of time and energy creating a very factual pamphlet on what Prop J can do for the City of Del Mar. Take the time to read it and understand it. Then go to the meetings and ask educated questions with the knowledge to understand or question the responses. For a healthy prospering Del Mar, vote “Yes” on Prop J. A comment; no I am not a resident of Olde Del Mar, but I love it and contribute to it as if I were. Corinne Hackbart

Vote ‘No’ on Prop J and save money! A “Yes” vote on Prop J on Nov. 6 means two things, maybe, plus the possibility of a third. 1. You will pay at least $5 million to get the main street reduced from two lanes each way to one lane each way with three roundabouts, plus signals at 15th & 16th with unknown results. 2. You get the possibility that private property owners will build 220,000 square feet of additional buildings, including a lot more new restaurant/bars. Nothing is required. 3. If #1 doesn’t work out, as happened in Claremont, Calif., in 2004, the possibility is you get to pay several million dollars to remove the roundabouts and re-open the main street to two lanes each way, with synchronized signals. What’s wrong with this plan? Mainly #2 above. The property owners asked for a more reasonable amount of building allowed on their property, but are not clamoring for this plan, because of all the onerous costs and hoops to go through to get it. Therefore, you have not heard any clamoring to revitalize! Also, restaurants don’t work without an ABC license, and the ABC laws say a license can’t be issued to a location within 100 feet of a residence. That shoots down all the new restaurants! Vote “No” on Prop J and save money! Ralph Peck

New State law impacts Proposition J — and the future of Del Mar The Village Specific Plan that was approved by the City Council and the Del Mar Village Association after two years of public meetings and long hours of committee work is neither responsive to the needs of the City’s residents, nor does it respect the vital role of the residents’ participation in critical development for our City. If Proposition J passes, we, the residents of Del Mar, will lose vital rights under Measure B to final approval of largescale developments within the City. Measure B [adopted by the voters in 1986] requires specific plans for properties in the downtown commercial area larger than 25,000 square feet or proposing more than 11,500 square feet of development to be approved by the voters. The City Attorney’s impartial analysis of Proposition J in the Specific Plan states: “[If Proposition J is] approved by the voters, no separate specific plan or further Measure B vote will be required for developments that are designed, reviewed and implemented in accordance with the Specific Plan.” What this means for you, and why you should be wary of ceding control over development in our City to developers, is that the new State law passed in 2008, Government Code Section 65915-65918, allows developers to increase the density of commercial and residential development by up to 35 percent over the caps in our local zoning limits if they agree to build certain levels of low, very low and moderate income housing. This State law is also identified as the “Density Bonus and Incentive Plan”for developers. It was written as an incentive to developers to build projects for low-cost housing

and is being used by developers to increase the size of projects beyond local restrictions as it appears in this instance. The City of Los Angeles is already experiencing problems with this Density Bonus Plan. This incentive plan for developers may well cause problems throughout California. In other words, if the Village Specific Plan (Proposition J) is adopted on Nov. 6, it will give the right to developers to build above and beyond what is stipulated in the Specific Plan. The daily lives of residents will be most affected by this development, and no longer have any voice in the City. Measure B governs the “last word” for residents. These are hard-fought rights won by residents over the last 50 years, i.e., the 1976 General Plan lays out the City codes we all abide by that enhanced property values in the City, and Measure B that enables our ability to halt the over-development that promises to bring those property values back down again. Since property taxes are the main source of revenue for the City and retail business downtown contributes little to the tax base, and better ways of satisfying State mandates for affordable housing, a “No” vote to avoid rapid overcrowding as well as additional heavy traffic and parking woes that will ultimately become extremely costly for the city would be wise.

Letters to the Editor/Opinion

For the patients of Del Mar, vote ‘Yes’ on Prop H Prop H is about compassion for patients with oversight for the City of Del Mar. Prop H will allow severely and terminally ill patients of the City of Del Mar to access medicine that will alleviate their pain and suffering. It allows the City to conduct total oversight to ensure the lawful and safe operation of a very limited number of dispensaries. City officials will be allowed to inspect dispensaries at any time, monitor their operations to ensure complete compliance with state law and enforce safety requirements contained in Prop H. These important safety requirements include security cameras, alarms, guards and the requirement that no visible representations of medication can be seen by the public. An impact report is meant to be an impartial analysis to aid voters. Unfortunately, members of the Del Mar City Council chose to create a bias propaganda piece filled with half-truths and misrepresentations meant to influence the voters of Del Mar to vote against Prop H. The impact report has served only as opposition research for Prop H opponents. Opponents claim that up to six dispensaries would be possible under the ordinance. This considers all possible locations rather than the probable or realistic number of locations for dispensaries. The reality is that under the ordinance the probable maximum number of dispensaries ever to be located in the city of Del Mar is two. The report included possible locations regardless of existing use such as on top of hotels, like the Hotel Del Mar, and city buildings, such as City Hall. Realistically, this ordinance would result in only one or two dispensaries ever to exist to serve Del Mar patients.

Opponents claim that City employees could potentially be prosecuted for implementing the regulations under Prop H. Federal law clearly states that “no civil or criminal liability shall be imposed ... upon any duly authorized officer of any State … who shall be lawfully engaged in the enforcement of any law or municipal ordinance relating to controlled substances.” Additionally, State law allows the regulation of medical marijuana dispensaries. Both State and Federal laws protect any city employees from prosecution while enforcing or implementing regulations under Prop H so this claim by opponents is brazenly false. Opponents claim that Prop H would allow felons to operate dispensaries, but nothing is farther from the truth. While state law does not impose any restrictions on who can operate a medical marijuana dispensary, Prop H creates restrictions. Under Prop H serious felons could not operate dispensaries within seven years of their conviction. This is a limitation, not an allowance. Opponents claim that dispensary permits could not be revoked. This is also completely false. Prop H allows the city to revoke or suspend operating permits to dispensaries at any time. Therefore, operating permits can be revoked or suspended immediately when a dispensary is found to be in violation of any of the strict operational and safety standards contained in the ordinance. Prop H affirms Del Mar City to be a compassionate, forward thinking, progressive haven that takes care of its ill and elderly. For the patients of Del Mar, vote “yes” on Prop H.

Lightner replied, “I support a penny for the arts.” Not only that, she said she is glad to see some local schools incorporating art and music into their standard curriculum. In a final question, moderator Thad Kousser, a UC San Diego associate political science professor, asked the candidates who they support in the San Diego mayoral race. Lightner has worked closely with candidate Carl DeMaio, but said her full support goes to his opponent, Bob Filner. “I believe he has a strong interest in the com-

munity and a fine understanding of the city and region as a whole,” she said, adding that he “actually knows that Mexico exists and might be important to our longevity here” when it comes to cross-border economic development. Ellis declined to pick a candidate for mayor, but he said he’s in line with DeMaio on fiscal issues like pension reform. “I have been trying to stay out of the partisan side,” he said. “That’s why our campaign has been able to attract Democrats and Republicans.”

The team also showed some defensive prowess including a drive-ending interception by Ryan Tom. Ben Hendrickson, first-time quarterback and Dylan Basuil, first-time center, worked well together and the smooth hand offs contributed to the victory. The Dons dominated the game, and were thrilled to get their first win of the season.

Torrey Pines Falcons Jr. Midgets (D2) defeat Murrieta Silverhawks 38-8 BY BILL BUTLER The Torrey Pines Falcons defeated the Murrieta Silverhawks on Saturday 38-8 behind a stout defense and a well-rounded offense. Torrey Pines struck first on a 25yard pass and run by Garland Peed to Brandon Ray following a blocked punt by the Falcons. Tucker Pike broke through the middle of the line for the block, which Conner Whitton launches a 54-yard touchdown pass to wide was covered by Tan- receiver Scotty Gange. ner Watkins. On their next possession, the Falcons struck through the air again, as Conner Whitton and Scotty Gange connected on a 54-yard pass and run. Torrey Pines regained possession after Jack Nelson blocked another Silverhawk punt, but were unable to score due to a strong defensive effort by Murrieta. Later in the first half, the Falcons had the Silverhawks penned near their own goal line. Murrieta tried a pass, picked off by Nick Clapp and returned 10 yards for the third Falcon touchdown of the first half. Pike was on target with his third successful extra point kick of the half, and Torrey Pines was up 24-0. The Falcons were unable to move the ball on their first possession of the second half, and Murrieta needed only one play to score, breaking a 56-yard run down the left sideline. The successful kick made the score 24-8, Torrey Pines. Following the kickoff, Torrey Pines moved quickly down the field, with Jake Boone getting the score on a nice run of 25 yards. The kick was good, and the Falcons led 32-8. Murrieta was unable to move, and Torrey Pines took over possession at their 46 yard-line. Runs by Zac Friedland and Beau Morgans picked up 8 yards to the Murrieta 46-yard line before Morgans ran through the middle of the line and went 46 yards for an apparent touchdown. The TD was negated by a holding call against the Falcons. Late in the game, Friedland intercepted a pass at the Falcon 36-yard line. Jackie Plashkes ran hard for 7 yards; on 2nd down, Friedland started over the right side of the line, cut left against the defensive flow, and carried the ball down the left sideline for a 57-yard run and score. With the score at 38-8, the thresh-hold of a 28 point lead had been met, and the Mercy Rule went into effect. There would be no extra point try by the Falcons, and the game would continue with preferential field position for Murrieta. There would also be a running clock. The game was quickly over with a nice win for Torrey Pines. The Falcons will face La Costa Canyon next Saturday at Torrey Pines stadium.

Sharks and Solana Pacific join forces to repair school fields

In a great showing of working together for the benefit of all, Solana Pacific Elementary School Principal Brian McBride, PTA President Stephanie Kowack, DMCV Shark Volunteer Eric Kowack and DMCV Sharks Director of Rec. Erin Misaki recently organized a group effort to repair the fields at Solana Pacific. With the opening of school and the fall soccer season the fields were in poor shape and the situation did not look good. However, the team worked together in a matter of weeks to acquire funding, supplies and labor for the needed improvements. On a very hot Sunday more than 30 volunteers from Sharks and teachers from Solana Pacific, including principal McBride worked from 6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., providing the on-site labor to replace large areas of the field with new sod. It was a long hot day for many, but the results were worth it. They were able to turn this back into a quality field suitable for the students at Solana Pacific, as well as the soccer players that utilize it for both for practice and games and the community at large. The Sharks would like to thank principal McBride, the teachers and volunteers that went above and beyond to make the community better for all.

CV mom ready to head back to the stage for ‘Footloose’ BY KAREN BILLING Carmel Valley mom Debra Wanger is taking the stage in San Diego Musical Theatre’s “Footloose,” running Sept. 28 through Oct. 14 at the Birch North Park Theatre. Wanger, a mother of three, stars as mom Ethel in the nostalgic ’80s show. “The adults all remember the movie but to the kids it’s kind of a period piece,” jokes Wanger. Wanger started in theater at age 9 and has been performing in shows on and off ever since. She worked as a singer and actress in shows at the Welk Resort Theatre, La Jolla Stage, San Diego Repertory Theatre, and Mo’olelo Performing Arts Company before going on “baby hiatus” after the birth of her twins, now 7, and her 19-monthold daughter. She had always been impressed with SDMT shows and jumped at the opportunity to perform with the group, fitting time Debra Wanger into her busy schedule to rehearse. It was hard work, but worth it to return to doing something she loves, something that “makes mommy happy.” “This will be the first time that my twins will see me on stage,” Wanger said, noting the Girl Scout troop and all the moms will be coming to the show. “The moms are excited because we all remember the movie. It was an important coming of age piece for all of us and we all had crushes on Kevin Bacon.” Wanger plays Ethel, mother of the main character, the teenage Ren, who moves to a town where dancing and rock music have been banned. “It’s hysterical to me that I’ve moved on to playing the mom,” Wanger said. “She’s been through a tough road. Her husband left her and she’s raising her teen son by herself. She has to move to this podunk town with her sister and tries to keep her son out of trouble.” Wanger doesn’t have to do much of the “cut loose” dancing, but she does sing a song with the other moms when all the “athletic dancing and teenage energy stops for a minute.” Playing Ethel, she gets to act out a mother’s struggle and a bit of redemption. “Ethel goes through a journey herself. As her son finds his voice and the town goes through a transformation, she goes through a transformation as well,” Wanger said. “She learns to speak up for herself and helps to encourage Ren to keep the faith and stand up for himself, which in the past she wasn’t able to do.” Wanger said she is continually wowed by her young SDMT co-stars. “Vocally, it’s very demanding, a lot of tight harmonies, all while dancing,” said Wanger. “I’m grateful to be playing an adult.” Tickets for “Footloose” can be purchased online at or by calling (858) 560-5740. The Birch North Park Theatre is located at 2891 University Avenue, San Diego, 92104.

The Montano family kids with the Torrey Pines lacrosse team. Photos/McKenzie Images

TPHS Boys Lacrosse ‘adopts’ Jose Montano A ceremony was held Sept. 20 “adopting” Jose Montano into the Varsity Boys Lacrosse Team as an “Honorary Team Member.” The event was held at the Torrey Pines High School Library and included “Friends of Jaclyn” founder Denis Murphy. Jose was brought into the lives of the Boys Lacrosse Team through the “Friends of Jaclyn” program and Children’s Hospital. Jose is an 11-year-old boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in April of 2011. Jose has an amazing spirit and a passion for life. He touches the lives of everyone he meets simply with his smile. Jose’s biggest support includes his parents and five siblings. Jose and his family realize the support they have is how they have gotten through the toughest times of their lives. Jose recently completed his treatments at Children’s Hospital and is now cancer free. Torrey Pines High School was connected with Jose Montano and his family through the Friends of Jaclyn (FOJ) program and Foundation (www. The Friends of Jaclyn Foundation is inspired by Jaclyn Murphy who, in 2004, also had a malignant brain tumor (medulloblastoma). The Murphy

family founded the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation in 2005 to improve the quality of life for children with pediatric brain tumors and their families. The Mission of the Friends of Jaclyn program is to improve the quality of life for children with pediatric brain tumors. The program is based on love, support and friendship between the child, the team, and the child’s family. The program pairs a child with a college or high school athletic team so the child can be involved with the team as much as possible. The child is “adopted” by the team and becomes an honorary team member. The gift is in the relationship. The child gains a new support network of loving friends and the team learns to see the world with new eyes. The Torrey Pines High School Lacrosse program, along with Denis Murphy, and the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation, welcomes Jose and his family to the TP Lacrosse family. The Torrey Pines Lacrosse Team, friends and family will be walking to support Jose Montano at the Children’s Hospital Shamu Walk on Oct. 6. Visit — Submission

Del Mar Farmers Market awards eight scholarships in 2012

La Jolla Cultural Partners

Since the early 1990s, the Del Mar Farmers Market has awarded scholarships to students who are currently enrolled in higher education and either work at the physical market or behind the scenes during breaks from school. The Del Mar market is a non-profit organization, one of the few in the county. Each week participating vendors pay a small percentage of their margin to the market. In turn, the funds are used for the scholarship program and are awarded to a variety of community organizations, such as, the library, Community Connections, the new Safety Center and the Friends of the San Dieguito River Valley. This summer the market granted $7,000 in student scholarships. “This is one of my favorite things about being involved with the Farmers Market” said Lisa Renner, scholarship director, “With the soaring cost of education and the debt that these students carry post-college, it’s a privilege to provide a little financial assistance. All of these students help make our market a community treasure.” This year’s recipients include an owner/vendor, children or grandchildren of vendors, a spouse, and a fiancé of a vendor. Sonja Knowles, co-owner and operator of The Passionate Palate, bakes delicious cakes and pastries with her mother. Knowles, a senior at SDSU, will soon complete a BS in foods and nutrition, and hopes to expand her business and take more culinary courses. Sarah Jessica Parra, a family member of KG Growers, specializing in potted plants, recently said “The Del Mar Farmer’s Market scholarship program has made a huge impact on my college experience. It gives me the chance to focus more on school and less on the cost after I graduate. I’m very grateful for the board of directors who continue to be supportive of my education!” Parra is in her final year at UC Davis where she studies psychology and biology, and researches child memory and brain imaging. Elma Binuya, of Blue Heron Organic Produce, attends Kaplan University and studies nursing. Aracely Vega, of the Valdivia Farms, is in the Vista Adult Education Regional Occupations Program studying to be a phlebotomist. Aracely wrote, “I am very appreciative of this

things that a college student depends on throughout the semester. I greatly appreciate the scholarship because it allows me to focus harder on my studies and accomplish more in a short amount of time.” By shopping at the Del Mar Farmers Market you are not only getting the most fresh and delicious produce of the season, but you are also giving back to your community and supporting higher education. The market operates Saturdays, from 1-4 p.m., in the Del Mar City Hall parking lot between 10th and 11th, west of Camino Del Mar. Bring a reusable shopping bag and come hungry!

kind gesture as it will help finance my education.” Tyler “TJ” Wiesler, of Peggy’s Pasta, is a first-year student at Cal State San Marcos. David Lowry, of the French Cuisine is pursuing studies to become a physician assistant at Mt. St. Antonio College in Walnut, Calif. Two granddaughters of Annie Hogervorst, the egg vendor, Elena and Eva Nevarez, each received scholarships for the second year in a row. Elena is graduating in political science and has just completed an internship in Washington, D.C., and Eva is an art student at Cal State Long Beach. In the past, two other Hogervorst grandchildren have also received scholarships. Eva commented, “Without this scholarship it would be very difficult to pay for all the little

Acoustic Evenings with Jefferson Jay

Perspectives Lecture Where the Swell Begins

Jack Tempchin, Hugh Gaskins, Jeffrey Joe Morin

Monday, Oct. 8: 6:30-8 p.m.

Friday, October 5, 7:30 p.m.

Every summer the California surfing community enjoys the arrival of a long regular swell from the southwest. The origin of the swell is in the winter storms of the southern hemisphere, some in the Indian Ocean, halfway around the Earth. Join internationally renowned Scripps professor Walter Munk to learn how World War II and measurements of Guadalupe Island led to this discovery and what it means for surfers today.

Acoustic Evenings with Jefferson Jay have returned to the Athenaeum. Local San Diego legends will open the series. Jack Tempchin has co-written five multiplatinum hits for the Eagles, Hugh Gaskins will perform a bluesrock fusion on acoustic guitar, acoustic bottleneck slide, harmonica, and electric lead guitar, and Jeffrey Joe Morin will share his exemplary guitar and harmonica skills.

The Ceviche contains citrus-marinated shrimp with chopped tomato, cilantro, onion, cucumbers, avocado and serrano chili.

Casa de Bandini serves Mexican favorites as a feast for the senses BY KELLEY CARLSON trip to Casa de Bandini is like taking a vacation to Mexico — but without leaving your hometown. Previously located in Old Town, on the former homestead of Juan Bandini — a prominent San Diegan in the 1800s — the 32-year-old restaurant settled in at its current home in The Forum Carlsbad three years ago. Despite the move, “we brought the essence of Old Town to North County,” General Manager Gilbert Gastelum said. Much of the decor transferred with Casa de Bandini, including the bubbling, three-tiered fountain at the front of the establishment. Once guests walk through the front doors, they can detect the aromas of soft tortillas being freshly prepared at a station between the cantina and dining room. To the left of the entrance is the cantina, where customers can sit at high- or low-top tables, celebrate happy hour five nights a week, and watch sports on two TVs. The mirrored back bar displays wines and more than 30 tequilas, including Clase Azul — a brand that’s difficult to find in a restaurant. According to Gastelum, Casa de Bandini is one of only 10 restaurants in the country to offer it. The bar itself is fashioned of copper, with carved wooden rope detailing and moldings, and accented with oversized iron nails. Dangling from the ceiling are chandeliers in shapes such as stars, teardrops and globes. Against one of the walls is a large, 250-year-

Directly beyond the entrance is the orange-and-rust-hued dining room with hand-painted stenciling. One of the walls showcases ornate gold-leaf Peruvian mirrors. The room feels spacious, as it has an openbeam ceiling and plenty of windows. Handpolished wooden tables and chairs featuring colorful Oaxacan/Zapotec weavings dot the Saltillo tile floor. Next to the dining room is the Sala de Santos (“Saints Room”), often the site of parties. It’s decorated with figurines and artifacts of saints and cultural folk art from Central American countries, canvas oil paintings of archangels Gabriel and Michael, and an ornate altar of the Virgin of Guadalupe. In the patio, guests can drink and dine among succulents, cacti, Mexican arid agaves and exotic tropical plants. Pink

bougainvillea frame the doorways, and bees and hummingbirds are frequent visitors of the fountains. Yellow-and-orange umbrellas provide shade over the black metal-framed tables, and heaters are nearby if it’s chilly. At night, strings of multicolored lights overhead add to the festivity. The energetic Cielito Lindo mariachi group performs 6-9 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. Tinku serenades guests 6-9 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, and also performs its Andean rhythms and Latin American favorites from noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. While evenings are lively, the daytime is more reserved and calm. The main menu is filled with more than 80 selections, including vegetarian, healthy and gluten-free options. Breakfast primarily consists of egg dishes. Among them are the Huevos Rancheros a la Bandini — fried eggs and corn tortillas with salsa española cheese, and grilled marinated top sirloin — and the Avocado Omelette Español with green chilies. Frequently ordered entrees include the Carnitas a la Michoacan, which are morsels of pork served with tortillas, guacamole, salsa and beans; Carne Asada Tampiqueña, composed of seasoned carne asada topped with mild green California chili and grilled onion; and the award-winning San Germán, which is seasoned shrimp sautéed with butter, brandy and chunks of pineapple and combined with a creamy wine sauce, over a bed of arroz amarillo, and served in a pineapple half.

Young singers to audition for the Metropolitan Opera More than 20 young aspiring opera stars are expected to compete for the chance to end up on the stage of New York’s Metropolitan Opera. For the 54th time in as many years, the San Diego District of the Metropolitan Opera National Council (MONC) will hold auditions on Saturday, Oct. 13, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Crill Performance Hall in the Cooper Music Center at Point Loma Nazarene University, 3900 Lomaland Drive, San Diego. The public is invited to hear these possible “stars of tomorrow.” A donation of $5 is suggested. The event is expected to last until mid-afternoon. These nationwide auditions provide an opportunity for young singers to be heard by veterans in the field of opera. The auditions are sponsored by the MONC with the expressed aim of discovering new talent for the Metropolitan Opera and assisting the singers in their professional development. For additional information, please contact one of the San Diego District Co-directors: Carol and Ted McLaughlin, 619-460-3167, or Karen Pennix, 619- 921-0990; www.sdmonc. org.

Holly Smith Jones, Division 2 (Solana Beach) The rising cost of water for the Santa Fe Irrigation District (SFID) is a concern for each and every ratepayer. Water rates in the past 5 years (FY2006-FY2011) have increased 94%. Large users like the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club are already digging wells on their property to remediate the growing cost of water. Gardens that were once lush and green have dried, not only from our summer heat, but reduced water usage. In just the last couple of years, the community has already reduced water consumption to meet the 20% reduction target set by the State for the year 2020—but, without addressing overhead and pension costs, our rates continue to rise! We believe there are enough cost reduction opportunities available to operate SFID in a downsized mode, without adversely impacting the mission of SFID to provide reliable delivery of quality water to its customers. Consider that in just 3 years administrative costs have increased from $2.4M to $3.5M, an increase of 46%. Gruzdowich and Smith Jones want to work with the SFID to tackle the hard issues that must be addressed to maintain the affordability of water. As a show of their fiscal responsibility both of these candidates have committed to opt out of the “free” Board health, dental, and vision plan that costs the district approximately $16,000 per Board member. It is an honor and community service to sit on the SFID Board—ratepayers, our own neighbors, should not be asked to pay for health related benefits especially as most of us have access to active or retiree benefits from our employers. We encourage your support and vote for Greg Gruzdowich in Division 1 and Holly Smith Jones in Division 2 on your absentee ballot or on November 6 at the polls.

Del Mar Taste & Stroll set for Oct. 7, tickets on sale now BY CLAIRE HARLIN One of Del Mar’s most popular events of the year is almost here. The Del Mar Village Association (DMVA) on Oct. 7 will hold its annual Taste & Art Stroll, a free event for those only wishing to view the art, and a ticketed event for those wanting to taste samples from 29 local restaurants. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 on the day of the event. Camino Del Mar will be closed down from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. to let event-goers stroll the Village, a practice that’s been in effect for the past six years to accommodate the growth of the event. (The tasting portion of the event runs from 1-4 p.m.) DMVA Executive Director Jen Grove said the event started out small and has grown to bring out between 4,000 and 7,000 attendees (unticketed guests are hard to quantify). There is room for about 700 in the restaurant stroll, and that portion of the event is capped to ease pressure on the local restaurants. This year’s event will feature 75 to 100 artists, more than any other previous year, as well as several music acts. For the first time, the event will include a large stage set up on the south

end of Camino Del Mar featuring local jazz artist Peter Sprague. “We’ve never had a big stage like this,” said Grove. “We did it to energize the south end of town and make sure people go all the way down to 11th Street.” New restaurants featured this year include the Oceanview Bar & Grill at Hotel Indigo, Sip at Flavor del Mar and the Brigantine, which has not participated in several years but will this year. PrepKitchen is also up and running and will be serving up samples. The other 25 restaurants involved have been loyal participants for years. “It’s a great way for them to showcase what their restaurant has to offer,” Grove said. Canine guests will also get the special treatment. Each dog will get a free bandanda, and there will “doggie tastes” set up at SmashBurger, Frustrated Cowboy, Willis Allen, Julie Beachwear, Dexter’s Deli and Cafe Secret.

Carmel Valley couple takes visitors to 19th century through Old Town music program BY KAREN BILLING For more than 20 years, Carmel Valley residents Harry and June Goldenberg have been taking visitors on a trip back through time, singing in the parlor of the Casa de Estudillo in Old Town State Historic Park. Every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to noon, the couple offers up a slice of what life was like in the parlor in 19th century America. “What we do is educate and entertain,” said Harry, who plays the harmonica to accompany June on piano. “I’m a ham, I love to perform.” In Old Town, Estudillo is one of a handful of historic sites in the park. Estudillo is an adobe house built in 1827, one of the first buildings built in the city. The original adobe was restored in 1910. Harry and June set up shop in the parlor, known as the “sala.” “It’s a step back in time,” June said. June is a classically trained pianist with a master’s degree in ethnomusicology. While living in New York, she took on a project at the Old Bethpage Village Restoration on Long Island, researching the songs that were sung in the 19th cen-

tury parlors. Once the project was complete, she ran the music program for the guests. When the couple moved to San Diego in 1990, June immediately contacted Old Town San Diego to find out about its music program. Finding there was none, June offered her services and was very well received. A year later Harry, a retired advertising sales representative, joined her in the singing and to accompany her on harmonica. The pair dress in traditional costumes; June in full-skirted dresses and Harry in a coat and top hat. Both take on the roles of early San Diego settlers: June plays Sarah Robinson and Harry transforms into Louis Rose. Robinson came on a wagon train from Texas with Rose, who was the first Jewish man to come to San Diego. It took eight months to reach California by wagon and at one point Robinson was captured by Indians. They talk about how in 1855 there was no electricity and how the parlor is where people would have to entertain themselves with

Carmel Valley residents June and Harry Goldenberg perform a historical music program in Old Town San Diego. activities such as knitting, playing games and, especially, singing. June said

music that came into the parlor in the 1850s represented a wide variety, from

military songs to French songs to the popular Stephen Foster songs, such as “Oh! Susanna,” “Camptown Races” and “Beautiful Dreamer.” Harry said in those days, playing an instrument was a very important talent to have. “Girls played the piano to show they were accomplished and to get a husband,” Harry said. “Boys played the violin and most of the mouth instruments because it wasn’t ladylike for women to play them.” The most fun the Goldenbergs have had over the years was when the Old Town School was working. During that time, the sala would be filled with students who were very interested in the history and keen to sing along to songs like “Yankee Doodle” and “Skip to my Lou.” While the Old Town School has ceased operations, they still get school visitors, typically fourth graders who are studying California history. Entertaining children is something the Goldenbergs’ particularly enjoy. “Have you ever sat in front of a room full of first graders, all with their teeth

missing?” June said. “When they enter the parlor I’d say ‘You have left the year 2012 and you’re now in the year 1855.’ There’s a difference in the silence when I say that and I always love that moment when suddenly we’re in a different place.” Visitors from all over the world have come to Old Town and the couple has been surprised by how the songs of the 19th century are still known today. “One of the songs the whole world knows is the ‘Battle Hymn of the Republic’,” Harry said. “Even people who don’t speak English.” June said Japanese visitors love to hear “Auld Lang Syne”—they have different lyrics for the tune and it is commonly heard at graduations and at the end of the day. When June starts playing, Japanese tourists all begin to sing. Music, the couple has found, is an international language that brings people together. Casa de Estudillo is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is free. Learn more about visiting Old Town San Diego at oldtownsandiegoguide. com/

Arts Alive event set for Oct. 6 in Solana Beach BY CLAIRE HARLIN If you have strolled along the Solana Beach Coastal Rail Trail, you’ve likely noticed the large, round Sunburst of Color stained glass installation that’s permanently situated there. Created by Amber Irwin, the piece is one of many indicators around town that Solana Beach loves the arts. On Oct. 6, from noon-4 p.m., the city will hold its biggest art festival of the year — Arts Alive — and Irwin, as she has every year, will be presenting a temporary installation as part of a group exhibition that defines the event each year with a new theme. Irwin illustrated this year’s “Urban Gardens” theme with a large, mosaic “Arbol de Vida” — meaning “tree of life” — which she installed Sept. 19 on the fence of the Coastal Rail Trail. Twelve other Southern California artists, many from Solana Beach, join her in the project. “This event is so unique compared to any other art event I’ve seen,” said Irwin, adding that the performing arts component really makes it stand out. Event-goers will get to see six musical acts, two theater performances, a troupe of stilt walkers, and two dance groups at the event, which will start at Lomas Santa Fe and travel north to the San Elijo Lagoon. The event always features a “creation station” in which kids and adults can take part in a hands-on art project. In light of Solana Beach’s recent plastic bag ban, this year’s project will be reusable grocery bag decorating. The Bag

The San Diego Women’s Foundation (SDWF) has more than 200 members, each of whom represents a strong, dynamic woman committed to creating an even better San Diego for future generations. The upcoming “Get to Know SDWF” event on Oct. 4 at the San Diego Foundation will give others the chance to join them. The event will provide all San Diego women the unique opportunity to mingle with members, learn about the foundation and its model of pooled philanthropy, and hear the story of just one community partner making an even greater difference thanks to foundation funding. The featured partner, Playwrights Project, advances literacy, creativity and communication by empowering individuals to voice their stories through playwriting programs and theatre productions. “We are so pleased to provide this opportunity for our special community of women in San Diego to come together, learn from each other, and hear an inspiring story of how the San Diego Women’s Foundation helps change lives for the better,” said Rita Solberg, president of the San Diego Women’s Foundation. “Each time we bring dynamic women together to create change we become even more certain of our core belief that, together, women can do more than woman.” “Get to Know SDWF” will take place on Oct. 4, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the San Diego Foundation, 2508 Historic Decatur Rd. in Point Loma’s Liberty Station. Participants are asked to RSVP to Tracy Johnson at Tracy@sdfoundation. org or 619-235-2300.

Architect exchanges drafting for watercolor, holds first show in Del Mar BY CLAIRE HARLIN In his more than 40 years of working as an architect, Del Mar resident Don Coordt excelled by virtue of being precise and detailoriented, because any architect knows problems can arise if specifications aren’t spelled out to a tee. “You have to get it close to 100 percent before it goes out the door,” said Coordt, who operated a small firm in Sorrento Valley for 20 years. But Coordt has scaled down his work load to focus on a passion that doesn’t require him to carry errors and omissions insurance — watercolor painting — and his first exhibition is on display through the end of October at the Del Mar Art Center Gallery of Fine Art, located at 1555 Camino Del Mar in the Del Mar Plaza. Coordt was introduced to watercolor as somewhat of a technical skill in architecture school at Berkeley. Now he’s trying to “become more loose” in his application and approach, turning the skill into an art that’s open-ended, spanning far beyond the parameters of architectural renderings. He’s painting vibrant landscapes of sentimental places he’s visited, as well as a number of special local landmarks — Powerhouse Park, Del Mar Dog Beach

and Carmel Valley’s I-56 countrylike bike path, to name a few. His local renditions are available for sale at the Del Mar Art Center gallery, and his work is also on display at the San Diego Watercolor Society gallery in Point Loma’s Liberty Station. Not to mention, he serves on the board of the local Coastal Artists group, a nonprofit that showcases its members calls for exhibition space at the website The group will be having upcoming shows at both the Encinitas Library and the La Vida Del Mar retirement community in Solana Beach. “I’ve really got my plate full,” Coordt said. It’s not the first time Coordt has dove full force into an art he’s passionate about, and a proof of that is a five-tier shelf in his home filled with dozens of his colorful, handmade ceramic pots. He picked up that skill, as well as stoneware, by taking night classes at San Dieguito High School, and he said he has made so many pieces that he donates them or gives them away to friends. Coordt doesn’t consider his shift into the visual arts a retirement — actually, he doesn’t even like the word “retirement” at all. He said he is simply making a transition, and he continues to serve

the needs of past clients when necessary. In his years as an architect, Coordt’s clients included Dixieline ProBuild, formerly known as Dixieline Lumber Co., Frost Hardwood Lumber Company and Jack in the Box. He also completed a $2.5 million construction project at Solana Beach’s St. James Parish about a decade ago. Coordt has been a member of the Del Mar Art Center since 2007, excluding a sabbatical of about two years. The center has 35 members and operates like a cooperative, with each member paying dues and hanging fees to hep pay for the space. Each member volunteers in the shop twice a month and helps at various openings in exchange for gallery space. Members are diverse in their different artistic mediums, ranging from paint to sculpture to jewelry. Coordt said he sells about a painting a month there, in addition to greeting cards featuring his local watercolor scenes on them. Coordt said he often gets requests for commission work such as painting someone’s house or recreating an original he has already done, but he usually turns down such requests. “I have to be inspired by [what I paint],” he said, adding

Longtime Del Mar resident Don Coordt’s artwork will be on display at the Del Mar Art Center gallery through the end of October. PHOTO: CLAIRE HARLIN

that he doesn’t like to paint the same thing twice. Coordt said it’s the vibrancy of colors that fascinates him about watercolor, and he often gets into “the zone” and doesn’t come out for hours. “When I get into that state, and I can’t be interrupted, my wife Susie always says, ‘The crab is in,’”

Anxiety is never funnier than when ‘Mistakes Were Made’ BY DIANA SAENGER One man’s obsession for staging a show about The French Revolution soon turns into a frenzied mania that just might be his undoing in “Mistakes Were Made,” having its West Coast premiere at Cygnet Theatre through Oct. 21. Under the direction of Shana Wride, San Diegobased actor Phil Johnson tackles Craig Wright’s zany script. It’s a challenge, but Johnson has the skills to pull it off. His credits include Broadway’s “Les Miserables,” touring productions of “Les Miz” and “Miss Saigon,” “Putnam County Spelling Bee,” “Don’t Dress for Dinner,” and many more.

have earned Johnson awards and recognition. All of which have helped him identify with this character. “Felix isn’t very far from me,” Johnson said. “I think every performer ends up chasing after things. Because acting is a weird life, you end up approaching things as a little bit of your own personal salesman. “This play is a funny look at obsession from an American point of view, and how far some will go to get that one thing they really want.” Because Felix is having

difficulty in getting what he wants, he goes out on a limb and is in danger of falling. “He’s a theater producer so how big a consequence can he get into?” Johnson said. “But Felix gets into big trouble when he becomes so desperate he attempts to raise money overseas.” Getting in over one’s head and reaching desperate measures is something today’s audiences can relate to. “Exactly. Felix is very much a person of today,” Johnson said. “We’re all on smart phones and finding ways to jam more work into every crevice of our lives. It’s a tough thing to look at your own life and ask, ‘when is it really enough?’ Felix works hard and makes work the absolute ultimate of his life to the detriment of everything else around him.” Misguided ambition has dire consequences as Felix eventually discovers.

But can he rebound? “The story gets complicated, but everything Felix does, he feels justified in doing,” Johnson said. “He ends up losing everything that’s important to him, including his family.” A lot of humor and a character with a good heart is what Johnson found intriguing about this story. “Because it’s based on a theatrical production, it has very funny elements to laugh at like actors, producers, movie stars, and divas. “I think Felix is smart and essentially a sweet guy. He’s not doing this for the money. He’s doing it for his self-respect and for something he wants very badly – to have a play on Broadway. “The story is not cliché at all. Felix is his own creation; a smart New Yorkertype, who is also a feeling and caring fellow, and that’s what gets him into trouble sometimes. But we care for him, too, and when he falls, we fall with him.”

Felix (Phil Johnson) has problems balancing it all in ‘Mistakes Were Made.’ COURTESY

Rotary Corner

Bixby & Ball is located at 214 S. Cedros Avenue in Solana Beach;

Rotarians get ‘Quacked Up’: Del Mar Rotary Club brings back the Quack for 4th Annual Chili & Quackers Event BY EMILY FIGUEIREDO, PUBLICITY CHAIR Who wants to win an iPad? How about witness thousands of rubber ducks swimming at the beach? Or taste a chili concoction made by local firefighters? This is not a contest for the most bizarre bucket list; this is the 4th Annual Chili & Quackers Challenge presented by the Rotary Club of Del Mar. On Oct. 20, all of these crazy questions will come together for one afternoon of free fun for all, Del Mar sun and supporting the community. The Chili & Quackers event began four years ago with the idea that Del Mar Rotarians wanted to host a community event that was fun for all ages. We knew we wanted it to be free, unique and a visible display of how much fun our club has while giving back. Thus, The Chili & Quackers Challenge was born! The event is held from 3-6 p.m. at Powerhouse Park and will include something for everyone. For those wanting to bring the family over to the park, there will be games for children, face painting by Pinky’s Big Top, fun hair design by Vickie Lavanty Salon and live musical entertainment. In addition, the chili cook-off will provide delicious and unique flavors to try. Each year the chili entries get more creative and more competitive with new ingredients, fun themes, costumed chefs and family recipes to delight your palate. Please visit our website to sign up as a chili chef and enter your stew for the big win! On top of the family activities, chili tastings and a beer and wine garden, the real star of the show will be the ducky derby. Anyone can “adopt a ducky” that will swim in the ocean during the event thanks to support from the Del Mar Lifeguards. If the ducky with your number swims in first, you will win a fabulous prize! Prizes include an iPad, iPod Touch, Kindle, certificates for dining in Del Mar, Turf Club access at the races, a flat screen TV, autographed shirts by the Chargers and the U.S. Women’s Olympic Soccer Team, and so much more! Visit to enter this fun opportunity drawing today. We would love to partner with you or your business for this event. Thank you to our sponsors who have already committed their support, especially our Very Important Duck Partner The Fish Market Del Mar. We also thank Steigerwald-Dougherty, Elevated Search, Coldwell Banker with Sharyn Daly, State Farm with Val Myers, Jim Watkins and Stratford Square, Flavor Del Mar, Monty Woolley and Dr. Frederick Wallace. Join us on Saturday, Oct. 20, at Powerhouse Park for all of the fun and visit to adopt your duck, become a sponsor, sign up to cook chili, learn more about our charitable beneficiaries and receive all of the event details.

In the Battle of the Bulge: Slow and steady wins the diet race The Kitchen Shrink

BY CATHARINE KAUFMAN “The bestsellers are cookbooks and the second best are diet books; how not to eat what you’ve just learned how to cook.” — Andy Rooney We have become a nation enamored with fad and trendy diets for decades. Think Dr. Atkins’ exclusive carnivorous smorgasbord, the Paleolithic Hunter-Gatherer “Caveman” Diet, The Zone, The Martini Diet, low fat, low salt, low sugar, low carb, low food. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has the latest stats on the weight-loss scene. Here’s

the skinny on the most effective diet regime. Researchers weighed the low-carb, low-glycemic and low-fat diets against each other and found the former burned the most calories in a day, the latter burned the least calories, while the low-glycemic was the best all around diet, burning more than the lowfat diet while easier to stick to over the long haul than the low-carb diet. The buzzwords of this diet are Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load, referring to how certain foods affect blood sugar and insulin levels, and ultimately measuring how quickly foods are digested. High-glycemic foods cause a spike in blood sugar then a crash, resulting in a surge of hormones that trigger hunger pangs and lower metabolism. This puts the skids on weight loss and maintaining optimum weight. So in the new world of dieting, the lower the index and load, the better. Numbers Game The Glycemic Index is measured on a scale of 1 to 100. Foods ranging from 1 to 54 are low-glycemic; those between 55 and 70 are mod-

erate, while those over 70 are considered high-glycemic, glucose representing 100. Low GI foods include lentils, beans, sourdough rye, pumpernickel and stone-ground whole wheat breads, sweet potatoes, barley, apples and tomato juice. The moderate category includes brown rice, Moroccan couscous, raisins, corn and cranberry juice; while in the high category are the refined whites — white rice, Wonder white bread, baked potatoes, French fries, Cheerios and watermelon. To calculate the Glycemic Load, (a more accurate indication of the effect of a serving of food on blood sugar levels), the amount of available carbohydrate in a serving of food is multiplied by the GI, then divided by 100. Once again, lower is better. Some examples include lentils with a GL of 5, brown rice 16, and white rice 25. Swap Meat It’s easy to swap out high GI foods for low ones. For breakfast, instead of sugary, refined, cold cereals and orange juice, do oatmeal with raw oranges. For burgers switch the pasty white buns for whole grain or rye. With breaded

Not Your Grandma’s Barley Tabouli (Serves 4) Ingredients 1 cup pearl barley 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped 1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped 3 Persian cucumbers, diced 1/2 small red onion, minced 3 Roma tomatoes, chopped 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 1/4 cup lemon juice Sea salt and black pepper to taste 6 Romaine lettuce leaves Method: Boil barley in 2 cups of salted water. Cover and simmer for 35 minutes, or until water is absorbed. Chill and combine with cucumber, onion, tomatoes

chicken cutlets or battered fish, use whole wheat, rye, oat or almond flour, or better yet, poach or grill with fresh lemon and olive oil. Do sweet potato fries instead of Russet fries, and raw veggies with a low-fat yoghurt dip, rather than chips and cheesy dips. Gas it Up Beans and lentils add a low GI oomph to your diet, dialing up fiber, protein, an assortment of B vitamins and minerals. Autumn offers a bounty of beans — from

and herbs. In a mixing bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Toss into barley mixture. Line a platter with lettuce leaves and top with tabouli. Garnish with mint leaves.

Cranberry, Butter Limas and Cannellini to Black, Red and White Kidneys. If you’re not a fan of beans, do hummus with traditional chickpeas or riffs using Great Northerns or organic edamames. Watch Your Bs and Qs Give wheat the shaft for low GI grains like nutty, chewy barley, as divine in soups, stews, pilafs and risottos as in cereals and desserts. Fragment and fluffy Basmati rice has a low GI because it losses a lot of starch during cooking, the finished

product not sticky like other high GI rices. Buckwheat is a versatile seed that can be roasted as in Kasha, or ground into flour or enjoyed as a noodle. Quick-cooking, multitasking bulgur wheat is typically used for Mediterranean dishes, including tabouli, pilafs and stuffings. The Incan Mother grain quinoa is a complete protein that can be a satisfying main dish or a delectable side or salad. — If you’d like to chew the fat, e-mail kitchenshrink@
