LOCAL COVER STORY

JSerra

Pre-Med Professional Magnet Program students and Coordinator, Betty Cappelletti

Catholic High school

sharpening its competitive edge

Courtney Avila, class of 2011, has already received acceptance letters from Penn State, the University of Oregon, and Texas Christian University, where she is interested in studying Communications, Public Relations, and International Relations. Courtney was able to take advantage of the many opportunities open to her at JSerra and founded the JSerra Girls Lacrosse team in 2008, which went on to win the Trinity League title in 2010. “JSerra has prepared me academically to get into the colleges that I applied to,” says Courtney. “It has provided me with lifelong friends who are like family to me and with whom I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life.”

n only its eighth year, JSerra High School, San Juan Capistrano’s top-tier Catholic learning institution, has exceeded all measureable expectations of growth and excellence. The school’s Professional Magnet Program, implemented just last year, has been overwhelmingly successful and has garnered national attention from Ivy League educators. The music and theater programs have been significantly expanded. The athletic department has developed championship teams and nationallyranked individual athletes in a variety of sports. The school has 23 international students from seven different countries. Graduates of JSerra earn a remarkable $24,311 on average in scholarship and have been accepted at 70 of the 100 topranked universities. Frank Talarico, JSerra’s President and CEO, views these achievements as examples of “good customer service.” Talarico describes his approach to managing the development of the school and its students as “customer focused.” That commitment to his customers, in this case the parents and students, has driven him to take the job of college prep to the next level and beyond. In fact, Talarico’s exhaustive discussions with both JSerra parents and parents of students in other area high schools led to the evolution of much of JSerra’s innovative curriculum.

of the magnet program’s success. Mission Hospital’s CEO, Peter Bastone, “has been an extraordinary partner” in the medical track, according to Talarico. The business track, which was just introduced this school year, is co-facilitated by UCI’s Paul Merage School of Business, headed by Dean Andy Policano and Denise Patrick. “Without their vision and confidence, this program never would have happened,” insists Talarico. The corporate partners work alongside the school to offer students a unique first-hand insight into their respective fields. The magnet programs offer significant academic advantages in addition to professional exposure. Business students can earn UC credits through JSerra’s program, and students in both

adding a second college-caliber laboratory and classroom and the liberal arts program is looking to expand its foreign language offerings to include Chinese. Students routinely earn perfect scores on Advanced Placement exams, which speaks well to both the quality of the curriculum and faculty. In addition to academic excellence, JSerra is committed to providing students with a well-rounded high school experience. The school’s South Campus is dedicated to 22 sports and its training facilities rival any in the country. The Aquatics Center has one of only two pools west of the Mississippi that can host an Olympic Qualifier—the other is at Stanford. JSerra’s soccer and cross-country teams are defending CIF State Champions and the baseball team has sent more players to Division 1 teams than any other in Orange County in the last three years. ESPN featured student Juan Gutierrez on its cover and named him the top soccer player in his position in the nation. If that’s not enough, JSerra even has a successful ice hockey team! The JSerra Choir was recently selected to travel to Rome and perform for the Pope. The black box theatre has been expanded and upgraded to accomodate a wider variety of performance art. In conjunction with the school’s Community Relations Committee, many JSerra students are involved with local non-profit organizations, including The Mission in San Juan Capistrano. This commitment to nurturing well-rounded young women and men is as important to the administration as test scores in determining long-term success.

The Varsity Girls Cross Country Team 2010 CIF State Champions

The Professional Magnet Program is one such innovation. JSerra students may apply to either the medical or business track and get a jumpstart on a higher education and possibly a future vocation. Hands-on demonstrations in an actual hospital or business setting combined with the practical application of classroom concepts provide students a foundation from which to start a professional trajectory.

tracks receive a distinctive certificate with their diplomas upon graduation. In the highly competitive climate of college admissions, participation in the Professional Magnet Program may give students the competitive edge they need. Future magnet programs in the works include law, engineering, technology and performing and fine arts. Talarico intends that these tracks will follow the model of the existing programs: real world experience coupled with a strong corporate partner.

Talarico credits the school’s close relationship with its corporate partners for much

JSerra is just getting started. Talarico promises “very exciting and progressive academic announcements” in the next few months. He says he simply “wants kids to be curious about the world.” In doing so, he’s piqued the curiosity of the academic world about JSerra.

Modern Medicine. Personal care. The ross Way.

asK tHe doctoR email your questions for next month to:

askThedoc@rossMedical.net Question: Is Ross Medical an Urgent Care or regular doctor’s office? —Kim, Dana Point ross meDical: actually, ross medical is both! Urgent care means that we will see you without an appointment, and walkins are welcome. We can treat many acute Illnesses and minor emergencies such as sprains and sports injuries, lacerations and cuts, sore throats, coughs, stomach aches, wheezing and asthma, and rashes. All ages are welcome, and each office has the latest Digital x-ray equipment. Family Practice means that we can be your primary care doctor for you and your family. This includes preventive screening and treatment of diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, asthma, thyroid disorders and other medical conditions. We perform annual exams for men, women and children, immunizations, travel counseling, skin screening and minor dermatologic procedures. We have four locations, and our offices are open every day of the year including Christmas and New Year’s! —Karl gebhard, mD

Physicals

ross meDical: Most of us take in adequate amounts of protein in our daily diets to supply more than is actually needed by our bodies, even during exercise. For those who work out especially rigorously or are concerned about protein intake, supplements will not cause any harm when used as directed. However, these commercially prepared protein supplements can be very costly and many of them contain little more than milk protein and flavorings. Choosing healthy foods, such as low fat milk and egg whites, are a good source of protein and cost less money. —andrew Klein, m.D.

CafE American Bistro & Bringing you American cuisine in a relaxed environment, Sundried Tomato simulates the complete gameday experience with prime viewing, tasty food and drinks and fantastic cash prizes. Equipped with four flat-screen TVs and a 46 incher on the patio, Sundried Tomato San Clemente party-goers won’t miss a moment of the action. Feeling lucky? Then rush over for their cash prize raffle of $250 at each quarter and a $500 cash prize at the end of the game. San Juan’s Sundried Tomato is also getting in on the action, offering $250 at halftime and $250 at the end of the game. Fans will score on fare that ranges from filet of beef tacos to braised beef sliders. (See pages 37 & 40)

For serious football fanatics, Renaissance Café is broadcasting the game on a giant 12 foot screen and on four additional LCD TVs. A $15 all-you-can-eat buffet and $5 beers will ensure that your appetite will be satisfied and your thirst will be well-quenched. The festivities will start at 2 p.m. with prizes being awarded at the end of each quarter. (See page 42)

If you’re looking for unique ambiance in which to watch the game, you will find it in the form of a swanky, fully-restored 1927 Pullman Car at The Vintage Steakhouse. Located adjacent to the train station in downtown San Juan Capistrano, the art deco-styled restaurant will be offering their happy hour menu throughout Super Bowl Sunday. Consisting of half-priced Lounge Menu items, $4.95 martinis and well drinks, $2.50 select beers and $5 wines, you can’t afford not to hop aboard! (See page 37)

We’ve got a line on big fun in Laguna Beach. At The House of Big Fish, five large HD flat-screens, sumptuous seafood, more than 40 different beers, a complimentary nacho bar and a new Bloody Mar bar are the name of the game. Raffle prizes will be given away every quarter and a grand prize giveaway for a one night stay at La Casa del Camino in Laguna and Hotel Menage in Anaheim, along with gift certificates to House of Big Fish, The Rooftop Lounge and K’ya Bistro are yours to win.

At The Next Door in San Clemente, you’ll be greeted by an upscale, yet casual viewing experience and a unique menu reflecting the regional fare of the competing Super Bowl teams. Don’t miss their 25 cent wings, eight homemade beers and over forty wines from which to choose. (See page 36)

Super Bowl XLV watchers will be cheering Luxe’s happy hour specials, delish tapas-style small plates and generous giveaways. Located in Dana Point on Del Prado Avenue in the former space of the Purple Feet restaurant, this newly-opened spot will not only feature the game, but an appearance by the Bud Girls. Drink specials include: $3 draft beers, $4 cocktails, $6 martinis and $5 wines by the glass. (See page 40)

Sunsets in Capo Beach will offer up a spirited Super Bowl Sunday along with superior scenery. With a hard-to-beat ocean view, this island-style bar offers an interesting approach to catching all the gridiron. The bar will literally be split down the middle into two sections right down to the décor, food and beverages representing each team’s region. Wear your favorite team’s colors and you’ll receive $1 beers each time they score. (See page 36)

Have a SAFE and HAPPY Super Bowl Sunday. May the best team win! 18 FEBRUARY 2011

Ky-Mani marley

(949) 415-2373

by Anthony Small {smallworldband.com}

Friday, February 11th at the Coach House, Ky-Mani Marley will treat fans to a fiery set of hip hop, rock and soul-infused reggae. In the last few months, he’s played concerts around the world - from the World Festival of Black Arts & Cultures in Dakar, Senegal to the Raggamuffin 2011 Tour in Australia and New Zealand to our California Coast. Ky-Mani was also the featured entertainer at the recent United Nation’s Human Rights Day event in New York and The Beat Breast Cancer Music Festival in Trinidad.

ON

Ky-Mani has four albums to his credit: Like Father Like Son, an album featuring cover versions of some of his father’s songs, 1999’s The Journey, 2001’s Many More Roads, which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Reggae Album and Radio in 2007, which has more of a hip hop feel than his previous albums and reached #1 on the Billboard Reggae Album charts. In addition to being a critically acclaimed singer, Marley is an actor, author and humanitarian. He released his memoir, Dear Dad, on February 6th, 2010, what would have been his father Bob Marley’s 65th birthday. In 2009, he started the Love Over All Foundation (L.O.A.F.) which is dedicated to the educational development of youth by creating programs and distribution of grants that help promote positive change in low socioeconomic communities. Grants are distributed worldwide with a focus on education, music and sports. Ky-Mani and Julian Lennon were jointly named Philanthropist of the Year by Prince Albert II of the Monaco Foundation, Better World Awards. Marley continues to work on his own songs for his album Evolution of a Revolution. He spent many weeks at the famed Tuff Gong Studios in Kingston, Jamaica recording for the first time. Ky-Mani and Andrew Tosh also do an acoustic version of Peter Tosh’s powerful classic, “Lessons in My Life,” on Tosh’s new Grammy nominated album, Legacy.

F

rom the moment you walk into Ricardo’s Place, you’ll feel like part of the family. Ricardo himself will likely greet you with a warm smile and welcoming handshake before leading you to your table, where you’ll be tended to by an equally friendly server. You’ll always feel like an esteemed guest at Ricardo’s, where authentic, home-cooked Mexican food is simply a tradition. Ricardo and Rosa Beas opened their San Juan Capistrano restaurant in 2003 to share their mother and grandmother’s traditional Mexican recipes with the people of Orange County in a comfortable, affordable environment. And this is just what they’ve done. Their expansive menu is filled with a wide variety of dishes, many of them straight from Grandma Juana in Mixtlán Jalisco, Mexico, and all at a tremendous value. With so many tempting options, my friend and I had a difficult time deciding what to order at Ricardo’s, so we had a bit of everything. After a traditional pork pozole soup, we munched on ceviche-topped tostadas with fresh avocado and lime. For the entrée, we shared Camarones a la Diabla, a spicy shrimp dish that was flavor-packed, perfectly cooked, and downright delicious when stuffed into warm corn tortillas with guacamole and sour cream. We also tried the Enchiladas Suizas, which was presented in a green chili sauce that was so good I could have licked my plate. To top off our meal, we sampled the creamy homemade flan and warm, crispy churros. To say we both left satisfied and happy would be an understatement. There’s always something special happening at Ricardo’s. Come in for $1.50 tacos on Taco Tuesday or stop by for a tasty margarita or beer during their daily happy hour. Don’t miss the delightful music of talented harpist Julio Montero on Friday and Saturday nights. No matter when you visit, your experience at Ricardo’s Place will have you coming back for more.

Was Your Last Carpet Cleaning A Disappointment?

BIG

• Were they in-and-out of your home in no time at all?

• Did the same spots come back within a couple of days?

• Did it seem to take forever for your carpet to dry?

• Did you end up paying more

then you were led to believe?

I’m glad to tell you “not all carpet cleaners are created equal.”

6 Reasons You Should Call

HAINES & CROSS 1) MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE. If you are not totally delighted with the results of our cleaning, we will not accept your payment. 2) MANY SATISFIED CLIENTS. On request, we will provide you with names and phone numbers of happy clients who live in your neighborhood. 3) MOST THOROUGH CLEANING. If you feel our carpet cleaning wasn’t the best, most thorough cleaning you’ve ever had, you don’t pay.

4) FREE PRE-CLEANING INSPECTION. We provide you with a firm, written price quotation before the job, no hidden or surprise charges.

My Personal Guarantee If you don’t feel my cleaning is the most thorough you’ve ever had, I won’t accept your payment. No fine print, just an honest guarantee that assures your complete satisfaction.

5) YOU’LL GET TRAINED, SKILLED TECHNICIANS. Not kids, not day-laborers, not unskilled spare-timers. 6) ONE FREE ROOM OF CLEANING. For you to give our service a try we are offering one room of carpet cleaning FREE. There’s no obligation to by anything else. Just a chance for you to try out our service without any further obligation.

“Wow! My white carpets look brand new! I’m through with any other carpet company — it’s Haines & Cross for me. They were delightful, personable and professional.” —Natalie Stein, San Clemente “The best cleaning our carpet has ever had.” —Ruthi, Dana Point “Thanks to your superior method of cleaning and your willingness to rework the overly soiled areas, it all looks like new!!! Thank you for going above and beyond what we expected.” —Vi & Cleo Mathis, San Clemente
