NOVEMBER 2011: MATT VICELJA, Publisher As I gear up for my 20th annual Turkey Bowl football game, I’m coming to terms with the fact that I’m no longer 25. Last year, I watched my good friend collapse in pain as he rolled out to throw a pass. As he turned around to see who kicked the back of his leg, he realized he’d torn his Achilles tendon. Since I haven’t played football since the 19th annual Bowl and may have been a tad bit remiss at training for this year’s extravaganza, I’ve decided it’s time for me to retire to the sidelines and allow the next generation to carry on the tradition. Perhaps this year, I’ll takes things slow Thanksgiving Day and keep it to a light jog or brisk walk at the Dana Point Turkey Trot. Better yet, I could save my strength for the finish line festivities and watch my son run in the Kids’ Gobble Wobble from behind the rope. One event I’m in shape for, however, is the Taste of San Clemente on the 4th. On the 26th, grab the whole family and check out the annual Puttin’ on the Glitz Holiday kick-off event in downtown San Clemente. You’ll have a great opportunity to tackle that holiday shopping list and you may even catch a glimpse of Santa himself. As always, you can find these and other local activities on our November calendar of events. We are pleased to feature St. Anne Preschool on this month’s cover. Read about the school’s dynamic approach to early childhood development. St. Anne is a wonderful place to get the right start on your child’s education. Thank you for reading The Local DISH Magazine.... Gobble, Gobble!

LOCAL COVER STORY

philosophy St. Anne Preschool provides a warm, nurturing and loving environment that focuses on the whole child. The concept of learning by doing, by exploration and through hands on experience are fundamental to its mission. Banker believes that children are natural learners and the best way to teach them is to build on play and their natural learning styles.

curriculum

the right start

St.Anne Preschool When the time comes for parents to select a school for their child, the choice can seem overwhelming. by Shelley T. Hudson

One institution that may make the decision for your child’s preschool through 8th grade education a little easier is St. Anne School in Laguna Niguel. It’s premium academic experience with equal emphasis on all aspects of a child’s development—cognitive, social, emotional and spiritual—demonstrates a well-rounded approach to addressing the needs of the whole child. By providing family-friendly flexibility, a variety of extra-curricular activities, state-of-the-art technology and competitive pricing, St. Anne proves to be an exceptional value as well. Head of St. Anne School Randy Adams and Preschool Director Diane Banker describe their programs as progressive and dynamic. Banker is enthusiastic when outlining the fully-accredited preschool program. Its mission is to provide a “developmentally appropriate” course of learning that addresses a child’s individual needs. The preschool environment is designed to be equally academic and social, with an emphasis on the teacher-child relationship. “St. Anne Preschool is a happy place where children know they are loved and respected,” says Banker. A variety of scheduling options are available at St. Anne. The five-day preschool program “provides continuity and exposure to the full spectrum of programs,” says Banker, “but we offer two-day and three-day programs as well,” to optimize flexibility for parents. St. Anne even has a drop-in option for parents who want to add days to their child’s schedule. The 92% retention rate from preschool to kindergarten suggests that Banker’s team has created a successful formula that has struck a positive chord with parents.

OPEN HOUSE: St. Anne School’s Admissions Open House is Thursday, January 19th from 9 to 11 a.m. For a private tour and for more information about St. Anne, please call 949.276.6783. 10 NOVEMBER 2011

thelocaldishmagazine.com

The preschool offers a high-quality developmentally appropriate program for children ages 2.9 to 6 years of age. The program implements a curriculum that is consistent with the school’s goals for children and incorporates concepts and skills to promote development and learning. The daily schedule provides opportunities for children to learn individually and in groups according to their developmental needs and interests. The school provides the kind of variety and stimulation children need throughout the areas of language, math, science, art, music, drama and motor skills. Preschoolers also have fun, hands-on extra-curricular choices in cooking, art, yoga, Spanish and jewelry making that are tailored toward thirsty, young minds. Although St. Anne welcomes students of all faiths, the Catholic fundamentals of character-based religious education are also an integral part of the curriculum.

technology Adams cites St. Anne’s implementation of the latest technology for educational institutions as a competitive edge. Everything from class assignments to lunch menus can be readily accessed online. Adams plans to expand the use of this invaluable tool in the coming years as an extension of St. Anne’s “partnership with parents.” In preschool classrooms, computers are introduced at age appropriate levels as an educational tool for developing core skills.

day care Working parents also get a helping hand with St. Anne’s on-campus Day Care facility. The option to drop kids off as early as 7 a.m. and pick them up as late as 6 p.m. offers parents a convenient and seamless transition along with the peace of mind that their child is in a safe environment. With drop-in, part-time and full-time options available, parents have the flexibility of utilizing the service to suit their schedules. In addition to supervised activities and play, the Day Care Program offers assistance with homework, allowing children to maximize their extended time on campus.

dr.givesmark anton us a reason to smile by krissy v.

AS

we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, it’s an ideal time to appreciate the health and happiness of our loved ones and to recognize the selfless acts of others. In September of this year, local plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Anton gave families halfway around the world a lot to be grateful for. In conjunction with Operation Smile and a mobilized team of surgeons, medical professionals and caring hearts, Dr. Anton set out on a journey to Kenya, Africa to bring smiles to children throughout the region. Working alongside local plastic surgeons at Provincial General Hospital in Nyeri, Kenya, the team provided hundreds of patient evaluations and performed operations to correct cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial and bodily deformities. Reconstructive surgeries are especially needed in this area, as nearly one in 500 children are born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. What drives a successful plastic surgeon with a thriving Newport Beach practice to travel to a third world country to treat patients? Anton’s response:

“The gift of seeing such dramatic change in the lives of these young children, both physically and psychologically, is indescribable. Children who may once have been ostracized because of their conditions now have an opportunity to lead happy and productive lives.” In addition to Dr. Anton’s obvious love of children, his mission to Kenya allowed him, “The opportunity to partner with doctors of similar ilk that have voluntarily taken hiatus from their surgical practices. I was fortunate to get to know them on a personal level - sharing philosophies on politics, spirituality and humanity. I have formed friendships through Operation Smile that I expect will last forever,” shares Anton. Dr. Anton’s relationship with the international charity began in Liberia over 21 years ago when he provided medical assistance to victims of the war-torn nation. “Working with Operation Smile in Liberia was a life-altering experience,” says Anton. “I was humbled by the spirit and determination of people who faced incomprehensible obstacles. That experience will stay with me for a lifetime.”

Anton Aesthetics

In February 2010, Anton once again partnered with Operation Smile in Hinche, Haiti to offer medical and surgical treatments to post-earthquake survivors. Due to Operation Smile’s remarkable ability to transport supplies and medical personnel internationally, Dr. Anton readily volunteered his expertise because he “was confident that the effort would have a direct impact on the lives of the Haitian people. Operation Smile delivers medical services that make a difference. I’ve witnessed it firsthand.” In stark contrast to Dr. Anton’s recent trip to Kenya, he was featured on The Real Housewives of Orange County last season when he performed a revisional breast augmentation surgery on Peggy Tanous — the newest housewife to join the reality series. When asked to comment on the seemingly disparate experiences, he said, “Reconstructive procedures, whether in wealthy Orange County or poverty-stricken Kenya, maintain a common thread; the psychological component affects all aspects of a patient’s life. I am just fortunate to be able to help those who want and need it.”

Operation Smile is more than just a global charity organization. Thanks to volunteerism and donations, it’s provided more than 2 million patient evaluations and over 200,000 surgeries for children and young adults with cleft lips, cleft palates and other facial deformities. To make a taxdeductible donation to Operation Smile, visit www.operationsmile.org or call 888-OPSMILE (888.677.6453).

about the doctor Dr. Anton is a Boardcertified plastic surgeon and has been practicing in Newport Beach for more than 20 years. His skin care and plastic surgery business, Anton Aesthetics, offers the full-spectrum of cosmetic procedures and enhancements. He is one of the only plastic surgeons in Orange County who has completed a fellowship in both face and breast surgery.

QUESTION: Why do I feel “depressed” during the holiday months and what can I do to prevent it this year? —Liz, Dana Point

Flu Shots available No Appointment Necessary

ROSS MEDICAL ASSOCIATES: You may be suffering from “SAD,” or Seasonal Affective Disorder. This has also been called the “winter time blues.” Symptoms such as low mood, sadness, fatigue, low energy and poor concentration are common, however, you might feel fine the remainder of the year, especially during the summertime. The cause is felt to be due to a change in your circadian rhythm, or the natural biological clock that controls the biochemical cycles in your body. Your brain produces serotonin and melatonin, which helps to regulate your mood, sleep cycles and sense of well-being. When these hormones decrease, as seen with less sunlight exposure during the winter months, you may feel a sense of sadness and malaise.

Free youth

physicals Anytime at the San Juan Capistrano Location Evenings and Sundays only at other locations Walk-Ins & New Patients Welcome Exam only. Parent must be present. Bring physical form.

It’s important to consult with your doctor when these symptoms arise in order to rule other metabolic causes or underlying mental illness such as major depression. Routine lab tests are performed, including evaluation for anemia, diabetes, and thyroid disease. In menopausal women, estrogen levels may play a role, and in men a testosterone level should be checked. Treatments include exercise and exposure to sunlight for about 30 minutes per day . Some persons may benefit from artificial light treatments under the supervision of a physician. Medications such as the “SSRIs,” or serotonin reuptake inhibitors may be useful, although they take about 2-3 weeks to see a clinical improvement. In addition, counseling and cognitive therapy has been shown to be of benefit. —Karl J. Gebhard, MD, MS

LOCAL Biz

Debbie & Rick Dunning’s Paradise II Jewely Boutique in downtown San Clemente has answered the call for unique jewelry and accessories at affordable prices.

Paradise II Jewelry Boutique

The couple’s first business, Paradise Jewelersalso in San Clemente, was a success right from the start. Their high-end fine jewelry and estate offerings have adorned the local community for over seven years now. Debbie and Rick saw an opportunity, however, to expand their current business and appeal to a wider audience as customers increasingly asked about more affordable gift options. To meet the demand, Paradise II was born. The timing was perfect. Debbie jumped on an ideal space on busy Avenida Del Mar and hit the ground running. Even after three years, Debbie says, “I’ve never even had to advertise; business is booming.” Her wide selection of affordable sterling silver jewelry is culled from all over the world and has become somewhat of a signature. In fact, Paradise II is both a local favorite and a regular stop for tourists. “People say this is their go-

to for fun, affordable gifts,” Debbie enthuses. The extensive inventory and variety of unique merchandise make Paradise II an easy shopping choice, especially for the holidays. Many of Debbie’s loyal customers stop in regularly to check out the latest collections from her exclusive lines. Dancing with the Stars designer Anne Koplik’s pieces, for example, feature hand enameling, replicas of heirlooms and elaborate, Swarovski-crystal studded dragonfly and butterfly designs. Paradise II is also one of the only retailers in the area to carry the exclusive “Mary Francis” line of beaded evening bags. Each one is named and numbered and produced in limited quantity. The bags are considered art pieces by many collectors and they’ve been carried by many celebrities at red carpet events. Ohio natives Debbie and Rick made San Clemente their adopted home and have embraced the community wholeheartedly. They passed through a number of seaside locales ten years ago while looking for their slice of SoCal heaven. They stopped for lunch in San Clemente one day, Debbie says, “And we knew this was it… we just can’t believe we didn’t get here sooner!”

Celebrating 10 years in Dana Point

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Maria Elena Banks, but most of my friends call me by my initials, “M.E.” I am the 2012 President for the Orange County Association of REALTORS®. I have been through three decades of real estate market ups and downs. Because of this experience, my passion for real estate rights has grown immensely. I am director of both the California and the National Association of REALTORS®. I have served on and chaired the Local Government and Legislative Committees. I have also helped in several of our neighboring cities with different ballot measures and local elections. In addition, I am the Liaison to State Senator Mimi Walters and to State Assembly Member Diane Harkey for the California Association of REALTORS®.That means I help these legislators interpret bills and understand how they will affect the real estate industry and private property rights. Right now, I am urging our legislators to do what they can to • Preserve the Mortgage Interest Deduction • Prevent any change to Proposition 13, and • Streamline the process for those who must resort to short sales.

DRs. MARK AND JEANNINE KOFFORD

In the future, I look forward to communicating with you through this column concerning different issues that affect real estate, home ownership, and private property rights.

LUNCH SPECIALS Starting at $5.95 by shelley t. hudson

If you’ve missed your favorite Chinese restaurant in Dana Point, you’re in luck! After eight years in the former Hollywood Video center on Coast Highway, Helena Ha’s Kaleyard has moved to a new location on Niguel Road in the Clubhouse Plaza. Helena and chef/business partner Kelly offer generous portions of authentic Chinese cuisine at family-friendly prices. They’ve kept all the local favorites on the extensive menu, including fifty “lite and lowfat” items, delivering a healthy and tasty Chinese option to the local area. On my recent visit, my friend and I sampled a variety of Kaleyard’s most popular dishes. Our appetizer sampler included Vegetable Egg Rolls, Chicken Dumplings, Scallion Pancakes and Aromatic Shrimp. The crispy shelled egg rolls were packed with fresh, crunchy vegetables. The dumplings were as light as air and stuffed with perfectly seasoned chicken, accompanied by a sweet, tangy sauce for dipping. The scallion pancakes were a more substantial choice and served with a very spicy hot mustard sauce. We enjoyed the Aromatic Shrimp appetizer as well, which was sautéed in a sweet and spicy reduction and lightly fried. One bite, and I understood why this is a Kaleyard signature dish. My companion’s entrée was a hearty serving of Mongolian Beef. His squeaky-clean plate was an obvious signal that the tender strips of beef sautéed with grilled onions and scallions in a piquant brown sauce was a hit. The Mixed Vegetables with Tofu was my choice for lunch - and it did not disappoint. After indulging in such a decadent variety of starters, I relished the lighter fare. The seasonal vegetables were cross-cut into bitesized pieces and sautéed in a feather-light sauce with soft tofu. At only 150 calories and ½ gram of fat, this well-portioned dish is a dieter’s dream! The lunch specials at Kaleyard are an exceptional value. Most entrées come in at around $8 and include salad, choice of soup, egg roll, dumpling and rice. From 4 – 6 p.m. on weekdays, an early bird special offering 20% off the entire menu is easy on the wallet and a terrific excuse for an early dinner. If you’re interested in eating Kaleyard’s cuisine at home, take out and free delivery (on $30 minimum orders) are also available. 38 NOVEMBER 2011
