Solana Beach acquires public art BY KRISTINA HOUCK A treasured temporary art piece will now become a permanent fixture in Solana Beach. In a 4-0 vote with Deputy Mayor Thomas Campbell absent, the Solana Beach City Council on Nov. 13 purchased the “Yoga Tree” sculpture that has been on display at the corner of Highland Drive and Sun Valley Road since February 2013. The 12-foot piece was installed as part of the city’s Temporary Public Art Program, which is funded through a public art fee attached to qualifying development projects. Created by artist Brennan Hubbell and inspired by a Yoga posture known as See ART, Page 18


Del Mar moves to improve law enforcement services from Sheriff’s Department BY KRISTINA HOUCK After hearing that a police department would cost more than $2 million a year and nearly $1 million in start-up costs, the Del Mar City Council on Nov. 18 decided not to establish its own department, but try to improve the services the city receives from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s Department provides law enforcement services under contract with nine cities in the county. Del Mar currently spends about $1.78 million a year on its contract with the department, which includes one 24/7 patrol deputy, a full-time traffic deputy, a full-time detective and other support services totaling about 8.3 officers. Although the council in January renewed a five-year contract with the department, Del Mar hired a consultant to review the city’s contract, compare the city’s law enforcement costs to other cities, and evaluate other law enforcement alternatives, such as creating a standalone police department. Ralph Andersen & Associates was awarded a $25,000 contract to conduct the study. The study was prompted after the Finance Committee recommended the city research other viable options for law enforcement because of increased contract costs and service complaints from residents. Except for slow response times and a perceived absence of deputies in the city, the report found that the level of law enforcement services provided by the department is satisfactory.

Fairgrounds wetlands restoration, Torrey Pines planning board members fall race meet approved by question One Paseo’s impact on California Coastal Commission emergency response times

BY JOE TASH The Del Mar fairgrounds received permission from the California Coastal Commission on Nov. 13 to begin holding a fall race meet in 2014, and to restore a dirt parking lot on the south side of its property into a natural wetlands habitat. As part of its decision, the panel voted to allow the fairgrounds to continue using its entire east overflow lot for parking and other activities, such as pumpkin and Christmas tree sales, for the next 10 years. Environmental groups, led by county Supervisor Dave Roberts and the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority, pressed the commission to order the fairgrounds to preserve a

portion of the east lot as well as the entire south lot. Officials with the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which oversees the state-owned fairgrounds, said they could not afford to lose both the 1,200 parking spaces in the south lot, and another 1,500 spaces in the east lot. The commission voted 7-3 to allow the continued use of the east lot, but required the fairgrounds to reapply for its permit in 10 years, and also to conduct two parking studies to look at alternative traffic and parking options. “I think it was a fair compromise and seven out of 10 commissioners felt likewise,” said Fred Schenk, See COMMISSION, Page 9

BY KAREN BILLING Torrey Pines Community Planning Board members voiced concerns at a Nov. 14 meeting about the impact the traffic generated by the proposed One Paseo project will have on public safety in their community. Board Chair Dennis Ridz expressed frustration about the lack of response the board has received over its concerns regarding One Paseo’s “unmitigated, significant impact on public service.” Ridz said that no analysis has been provided in the environmental impact report regarding the impact of traffic congestion on Del Mar Heights Road on response time for emergency medical services providers

Public to provide feedback on proposed project at Garden Del Mar property BY KRISTINA HOUCK Five years after Del Mar voters approved a specific plan for the Garden Del Mar property, residents will once again voice their opinions on a proposed project for the site. A new applicant has acquired a purchase option on the site and would like to implement the plan. Because Kitchell Development Company requested to convert approved office spaces to residences, the Del Mar City Council on Nov. 18 had to decide whether the change would be a minor or major amendment to the plan. A minor amendment would require a four-fifths vote by the council. A major amendment would require approval by both the council and Del Mar voters. Although most council members agreed that the change would be a minor amendment, they continued the item and reconvened the steering committee that worked on the specific plan. The council asked committee members to provide their recommendation to the council by the first January meeting. After the council makes its decision, a survey will be mailed to the public. “I think this can be classified as a minor change, but there are specific concerns that we need to be worried about in going from office to residential,” Mayor Terry Sinnott said. “It’s valuable to always get input.” Originally a gas station, the Schaar Company purchased the roughly 25,000-square-foot property at 941 Camino del Mar in 2006 and began preparing a specific plan, which was required under Measure B. Enacted by Del Mar voters in 1986,

Measure B requires public input and voter approval for properties in the downtown commercial district larger than 25,000 square feet in area or with more than 11,500 square feet of development area. In 2007, the council appointed five citizens to the Gas Station Site Steering Committee to work with staff and Schaar on the specific plan. The planning commission, council and Del Mar voters in 2008 approved the Garden Del Mar Specific Plan, which authorized 19,650 square feet of restaurant, retail and office space in six twostory structures built over a 106-space, twolevel underground parking garage. Two years later, however, the owner defaulted on the loan and the property was foreclosed in 2013. Kitchell Development Company would like to move forward with the plan but change the office space to residences. “When we look at the plan, the residential really accomplishes most of the goals of the office, but provides us an opportunity not just to be viable, but to put some people down there on a more consistent basis in a way that’s going to help meet the goals of the specific plan and activate that Camino del Mar street front to provide extraordinary public benefits,” said attorney Marco Gonzalez of Coast Law Group, which represents the applicant. In attendance, a few of the committee members spoke before the council. Although they approved of residential use on the property, they agreed that the public should have the opportunity to provide

Del Mar to begin master plan process for Shores property BY KRISTINA HOUCK More than six years after deciding to purchase Del Mar Shores Park, the Del Mar City Council is moving forward with a plan for the site. In a 3-2 vote, council members on Nov. 18 directed staff to issue a request for proposals and hire a consultant to produce a park master plan. “I think it’s about time we did it,” Councilman Al Corti said. “I’m in favor of moving this as fast as we can.” A master plan for the Shores property is just one of the council’s priorities. Council members and city staff reviewed more than two dozen priorities for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 fiscal years during a special meeting and workshop on Sept. 9. Council members agreed that building a new City Hall is a top priority, but disagreed on how to rank other priorities. Some council members suggested postponing the creation of a master plan for the Shores property to allow more time for other tasks.

“That’s not my highest priority,” said Councilman Don Mosier, who voted against staff direction, along with Deputy Mayor Lee Haydu. Concerned about overworking staff even with the help of a consultant, Haydu encouraged her colleagues to rearrange priorities. “We can’t do everything,” she said. “If we want to start looking at this, we have to push something else out.” The council voted in August 2007 to purchase the $8.5 million property from the school district, with the intent to preserve current open space and recreational uses, continue operation of Winston School, and initiate a master plan process. The long-range plan will guide the development of the 5.3acre park along Camino del Mar. Located on 1.8 acres of leased land, Winston School is also undertaking a school master plan. A provision in the school’s lease, which is through 2063, allows nonexclusive use of the ball fields and south parking lot,

subject to the city’s rights. The lease also stipulates redevelopment of the school site, with the first deadline to complete a development application on or before Dec. 31, 2019. The school has hired San Diego-based HMC Architects to prepare a needs assessment. Del Mar resident and Winston School teacher Linda Castile urged the council to move forward with the planning process. On behalf of the Friends of Del Mar Parks, resident Joe Sullivan also asked the council to make the plan a top priority. “We’re really eager for the city to move along on the planning,” said Sullivan, president of the Friends, a nonprofit that helped raise funds to acquire Del Mar Shores Park. “We know that you’ve sat through many, many meetings on the uses of this property. I think the faster the process begins, the easier it will be for the community to understand that there is a place for them to go to say what it is they want to happen there.” With the help of a consultant, staff expects the

Fire damages structure at Evergreen Nursery in Carmel Valley BY KAREN BILLING A fire broke out at Evergreen Nursery in Carmel Valley on the evening of Sunday, Nov. 17. At around 6:30 p.m., a neighbor called to alert the San Diego Fire Department that the houseplant structure at the nursery on Carmel Valley Road and Via Abertura was ablaze. By 6:54 p.m. the neighbor called owner Mark Collins to let him know it had already been extinguished. “We had three different engines respond,” said Collins, who, with his son Steven, owns San Diego’s largest wholesale nursery, which is open to the public. “The response time was amazing and we’re super grateful for that,” Steven Collins said. On Monday afternoon, the structure remained standing with a portion of the roof and interiors burned out. There were still plenty of healthy houseplants in and outside of the burned structure and it was still business as usual at the nursery with many customers on the large property. Investigations continue into the cause of the fire and the cost of the damages is unknown. On Monday, Nov. 18, the phone lines and Internet services were down, but Steven Collins said they hoped to get back online for customers soon. Evergreen Nursery is located at 13650 Carmel Valley Rd., San Diego CA 92130; 858-4810622;

Solana Beach man killed in car crash BY CITY NEWS SERVICE A head-on collision on a rural road near Lake Hodges killed one person Nov. 18 and left another severely injured, authorities reported. The crash occurred at about 6:45 a.m., when an eastbound 2005 Honda Pilot driven by a 45-year-old Solana Beach man crossed a double yellow divider line on Elfin Forest Road at Fortuna del Este in the path of a 2000 Nissan Frontier pickup truck, according to the California Highway Patrol. The Solana Beach resident was identified in the U-T as Edward J. Quigley III, a research administrator at Rady Children’s Hospital. The collision killed Quigley at the scene, CHP public affairs Officer Jim Bettencourt said. Medics took the other motorist, a 59-year-old woman, to Palomar Medical Center for treatment of major trauma. The wreck forced the closure of the roadway between Elfin Forest Lane and Elfin Creek Trail for about two hours. The cause of the crash was under investigation, though intoxication did not appear to be a factor, according to Bettencourt.


Six cases of whooping cough reported in county schools, including one case at Del Mar Heights BY CITY NEWS SERVICE Six cases of whooping cough, also known as pertussis, were reported at schools in San Diego County this week, bringing the total to 232 cases so far this year, according to county health officials. Cases of whooping cough reported this week involved a 6-year-old at Turtleback Elementary School, an 11-year-old Del Mar Heights Elementary School student, a 12-year-old student at Murray Manor Elementary School, a 15-year-old Academy of Our Lady of Peace student and two 15-yearold Grossmont High School students. All but one were up-to-date on their immunizations, according to county officials. Last year, 162 cases were reported. According to officials with the San Diego County Health and Human Services agency, 142 of those cases had been reported by this time last year. `Pertussis is not at the alarming levels of the epidemic in 2010, but we are seeing many more cases than last year at this time,’’ county public health officer Dr. Wilma Wooten said. ``The majority of cases are in the 10- to 18-year-old age group and

that’s why it’s important that preteens and adults get their necessary booster shot.’’ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that children get the DTaP vaccine at ages 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15 to 18 months and between 4 to 6 years. Preteens and adults should get a Tdap booster. Retail pharmacies offer the vaccine series and the booster for a fee, and those without medical insurance can get the shots at no cost from a County Public Health Center, county officials said. ``There is some evidence that protection provided by the vaccine weakens after time, but the best defense against pertussis is still to get the shot and protect yourself and those around you,’’ Wooten said. According to heath officials, a typical pertussis case starts with one to two weeks of a runny nose, followed by weeks to months of rapid coughing fits that sometimes end with a whooping sound. Fever, if present, is usually mild, according to health officials. The disease can be treated with antibiotics.

Working toward the cure: Past, present and future of breast cancer under the microscope BY ASHLEY MACKIN At a recent luncheon honoring Dr. Doris Howell of La Jolla (founder of the Doris Howell Foundation for women’s health) fellow wellbeing advocate Dr. Anne Wallace gave a presentation on the past, present and future of breast cancer. Director of the Breast Care Unit and Professor of Clinical Surgery at UC San Diego, Dr. Wallace opened with the point “this field is changing really rapidly.” “If I gave this presentation six month ago, I’d have to change the whole thing,” she told the gathering at La Jolla Country Club. “There’s a lot to breast cancer, it’s not just a matter of diagnosing or doing reconstructing, it’s looking at a patient from a lot of different aspects.” Who’s at risk? Risk factors, as well as how those risks can be quantified, has changed dramatically over the years, Dr. Wallace reported. She said scientists know quite a bit about the role genetics play in the risk for developing breast cancer, but the scientific exploration of the “BRCA” gene has changed the game. She said someone with a BRCA gene – which actress Angelina Jolie famously announced she carries – has up to an 87 percent chance of developing breast cancer. However, “This gene is associated with other cancers, too, like melanoma and prostate cancer or pancreatic cancer,” Dr. Wallace said. “Some women don’t have breast cancer in their family, but they might have these other cancers in their family, so we’re putting the word out … to make sure you take a detailed family history.” In addition to family history, other risks are also becoming clearer. “What we didn’t know until very recently is that there is a clear relationship between diet, obesity, exercise and alcohol (to the risk for developing breast cancer).” When it comes to alcohol consumption, she said four drinks a week are considered cause for a slight risk increase, and seven drinks a week a significant risk increase. However, exercise can help decrease the risk of cancer. Dr. Wallace said a woman’s body size factors in, too. An adult woman should not weigh more than five percent of what she did when she was 18 years old. “I always kid and say I would like to have a study that puts exercise against alcohol to see if you can exercise off your alcohol,” she joked. Once risk is determined, there is a mathematical model some doctors use that takes in all risk factors and issues a

Dr. Anne Wallace discusses the latest findings on breast cancer at the Nov. 6 luncheon honoring health pioneer Dr. Doris Howell. number indicating one’s overall risk of developing breast cancer, she said. Screenings and prevention In an effort to further personalize the approach to breast cancer, once a person’s risk level is determined, doctors can implement different screening strategies, depending on the patient’s breast size and density. She said in California, there is a law that mandates patients be told if their breasts appear dense on mammograms so they can be counseled on additional imaging techniques.

Dr. Wallace said she uses a MRI machine on many of her patients. “MRIs are now used for women who have dense breasts, high-risk women or women who present with something in the lymph nodes,” she said, showing slides of how breast tissue with a small tumor looked after a mammogram, and then how it looked after an MRI. The MRI indicated there was cancer present in much of the breast tissue. In addition to screenings, those with in an increased risk of developing breast cancer can also undergo chemoprevention and surgical prevention. “Chemoprevention basically means getting drugs to somebody so we can lower their risk for breast cancer,” she said. When it comes to surgical prevention, Wallace said there is an attitude of old-isnew-again. “We can remove the ovaries (of high-risk women) when they are done with childbearing,” she said, adding that surgeons in the 1950s removed women’s ovaries for breast cancer riskreduction and everyone thought that was appalling. “Then data started coming out to suggest that ovarian shutdown is very good for breast cancer (prevention) in extremely high-risk

women,” she said. Similarly, women can elect to have their breasts removed through a bilateral mastectomy. However, she explained there was a paper published in 2010 that showed when women have a mastectomy to reduce their risk for breast cancer, it doesn’t guarantee an extended lifespan. “So when Angelina Jolie chose to have her breasts removed, her statement, ‘I did it because I want to live,’ was a little misleading,” Dr. Wallace said. “The statement, ‘I didn’t want to put my kids through me having cancer,’ is more correct.” Removal and repair However, she said perhaps women are jumping to this solution a too quickly. “We are in a little bit of an epidemic of doing these very radical surgeries right now. I think some of it is we’ve gotten very good at reconstructing, but the rest of the world does not do as many bilateral mastectomies as we do,” she said. Other options for cancer removal include radiation, which has been improved in recent years, especially for larger-breasted women. Thanks to better technology, instead of increasing the amount of radiation to accommodate the larger amount of breast tissue – which can expose the

heart and lungs to radiation – radiation can be localized to specific areas of the tissue. Whether patients have a lumpectomy or mastectomy, there are also several developments in reconstruction. Dr. Wallace said there is a new breast implant (nicknamed “the gummy bear implant”) that the FDA approved in March. It has an anatomic shape, which it keeps when placed upright, and does not collapse. It is implanted higher up on the breast for a more natural look and does not have liquid inside, so if it breaks, there is no leakage. Looking ahead Dr. Wallace said the future of breast cancer is in understanding biology. “Ten years ago, if you had a threecentimeter tumor (of a certain type), you got chemo because it was three centimeters. Now we are sending that tumor for genetic testing and … that tells us if chemo is going to be effective. That person can go on a drug (instead).” She said there are new drugs in the works that focus on specific biological signatures of the tumor. “That’s where we are going in cancer; finding specific care for a specific tumor as opposed to the same thing for everybody.”

Del Mar couple celebrates National Adoption Month by officially adopting four children BY KRISTINA HOUCK Nov. 30 is a special day for the Bonadeo family of Del Mar. John and Betty Bonadeo will celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, and their oldest child will turn 10 years old. Dorothea, 9, proudly informs others that she was born on her parents’ wedding day. “We actually had a child that day, we just didn’t know her yet,” Betty Bonadeo said. The Bonadeo family celebrated National Adoption Month by finalizing the adoption of their four children Nov. 15, when nearly 20 families finalized adoptions during a ceremony at Juvenile Court in San Diego. The event was held a week before National Adoption Day, which takes place Nov. 23. “I can’t imagine life without them,” Betty Bonadeo said. John, 59, and Betty Bonadeo, 56, met later in life. Originally from Detroit, John Bonadeo owns a bathroom and kitchen remodeling business. Betty Bonadeo, a Chicago native, is a former Secret Service agent who retired 12 years ago. After working with fertility specialists and trying in vitro fertilization and surrogacy in their early years of marriage, the couple turned to adoption. They decided to relocate to California, which they found to be an “adoption-friendly state,” and moved from Washington D.C. to Del Mar in 2010. “When I was working, failure was impossible,” Betty Bonadeo said. “I always thought I could work hard enough or study hard enough and I could get whatever I wanted. “It was the first time I ever came up against a wall and couldn’t get what I wanted with hard work. It took a long time to move on.” Shortly after becoming licensed foster care parents, the couple received a call about four siblings from Alaska who needed a forever family. They welcomed Dorothea, Peter, David and Katherine — now 9, 8, 7 and 5 years old — into their home on March 24, 2012. Being new parents to four children was a little overwhelming at first, Betty Bonadeo admitted. During the first week,

John and Betty Bonadeo with their children: (l-r) Peter, Katherine, Dorothea and David. Courtesy photo she and her husband planned a family outing every day, taking their the children to the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Legoland and other kid-friendly destinations. “It was the wrong thing to do because after that first week, the kids said, ‘Where are we going now?’” recalled Betty as she laughed. After three months, the couple hired a summer nanny. An au pair from Germany now lives with the family. The bonding process also took time, especially for the two older children as they had memories of their birth parents, she added. “When the bonding occurs, you know what day it is,” she said. “These little kids look at me in a loving way, and of course, I love them, too.” One of her most cherished memories was hearing her youngest tell her classmate, “That’s my real mom!” when he asked whether Betty Bonadeo was her grandmother. “It just touched my heart,” she said. Now, the couple is open to potentially welcome a fifth child. Their home could accommodate one more child and they plan to renew their foster care license. “The kids all want more kids. The girls want a girl and the boys want a boy,” said Betty Bonadeo, who noted the family sponsors a 15-year-old girl from Guatemala. “I already cook for seven people, so one more child doesn’t seem like a big deal.” For the most part, John Bonadeo said the adoption ceremony was “not going to change anything.” He was already their father, and his wife was already their mother. “It seems like we’ve had them forever,” Betty Bonadeo said. “I don’t remember not having them.” “The good lord provided,” John Bonadeo said. “I think what happened to us — we couldn’t have asked for anything better.” There are about 3,500 youth in the San Diego County foster care system. At any given time, more than 40 children are waiting for permanent adoptive placement, according to the county’s website. The couple encouraged others to become foster parents and choose adoption. “Don’t be afraid of doing it,” Betty Bonadeo said. “We want to tell everybody that we’re not perfect and they’re not perfect, but it’s OK. “Everybody can do this. It doesn’t matter how old you are.” For more information, visit gov/hhsa/programs/cs/adoptions_program/

Accomplished ‘Beautiful Ruins’ author prides himself on writing a wide range of novels BY JOE TASH Jess Walter’s latest novel arose from the nucleus of an imaginary tableau: it is 1962, and a beautiful actress steps out of a boat at the dock of a tiny village on Italy’s Cinque Terre coast as a young man watches, spellbound, from shore. The novel spans continents, decades and encompasses a number of different types of storytelling. Walter worked on the book, “Beautiful Ruins,” for 15 years before it was published in 2012 by HarperCollins. “As a writer, I like to challenge myself,” said Walter, who spoke Nov. 14 at the Grand Del Mar Resort before members of the Rancho Santa Fe Literary Society. By interweaving the different points of view of his characters and telling a story that covered 50 years, set in both Europe and America, he said, he hoped to provide “an uncommon read” for those who picked up the book. “Beautiful Ruins” is Walter’s sixth novel, and he has also published a work of nonfiction and, most recently, a collection of short stories. A former journalist who has lived his entire life in Spokane, Washington, Walter said, “With (non-fiction) you’re trying to write about what is, with fiction what could be. You try to research it into being.” The book’s settings are places he has visited, such as Italy’s coast, Edinburgh, Scotland, and England, Walter said. He especially loved the Cinque Terre coast, which he visited with his Italian-American wife. Walter’s research led him to a snake-bitten production of the film “Cleopatra,” which came in over budget to the point that it lost money, even though it became the highest-grossing film of 1963, the year it was released. One of the film’s stars, Richard Burton, also becomes a character in the novel, and the film production serves as a backdrop. Early in the novel, the young man who had watched the actress disembark from the boat in 1960s Italy, Pasquale Tursi, shows up in the present time — some 50 years after the fact — at a Hollywood studio. Meeting with a young film executive named Claire Silver, he describes that event as “L’attimo che dura per sempre,” or, “the moment that lasts forever.” Pasquale is on a quest to find the long-lost actress, Dee Moray. “And Claire feels a tug in her chest, some deeper shift, a cracking of her hardearned cynicism, of this anxious tension she’s been fighting,” writes Walter. “The ac-

tress’s name means nothing to her, but the old guy seems utterly changed by saying it aloud, as if he hadn’t said the name in years. Something about the name affects her, too — a crush of romantic recognition, those words, moment and forever — as if she can feel 50 years of longing in that one name…” Walter began his writing career at age 19 when he landed a reporter job at his hometown newspaper, the Spokesman-Review in Spokane. His first book grew out of his reporting on the 1992 Ruby Ridge incident, a deadly standoff between federal government agents and the Weaver family, who lived in a cabin on an Idaho mountaintop. Walter was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for his reporting on the story, and a film was later made out of his book. “That was the beginning of working on books, which I’d always dreamed of doing,” he said. The product of a working class family, Walter was 20 before he flew on an airplane. Since then, he has traveled extensively to research and promote his books. He prides himself on writing a variety of different types of novels, from mysteries to literary fiction to “Beautiful Ruins,” which he compared to a “pastiche” or “quilt” of different elements that are woven together to form a coherent narrative. “I’m very hard to peg,” he said. One common thread in his novels and short stories, though, is the use of humor. “I like the intersection of humor with every other emotion,” such as sadness or pathos, he said. Rather than work on one project at a time, he said, he often juggles two or three, putting one down when he gets stuck and going on to another. He’s currently writing two novels and doesn’t know for sure which he’ll finish first. He also recently worked with a film director to craft a screenplay based on “Beautiful Ruins.” He’s hoping the film will be made, eventually, but, “Until you’re in the theater eating popcorn, you don’t really know.” Walter said he’s enjoying the current speaking tour he’s on, sponsored by financial services corporation Northern Trust. “To be in Las Vegas one day and La Jolla the next… growing up in a blue collar family, it was far more than I expected or thought would happen to me,” he said.

LAW continued from page 1 According to the report, in 2012, there were 2,470 calls for service, with 470, or 19 percent, generated from the fairgrounds. There were 213 arrests in Del Mar in 2012, including 119 in connection with the fairgrounds. Data from June through August 2013 showed that 55 minutes was the average response time for priority four calls, which includes calls about loud parties, prowlers, fires, assaults, burglaries and more. The average response time was 14 minutes for priority one calls (serious accident, airplane crash, SWAT alert, blood run or a disaster), almost 10 minutes for priority two calls (homicide, kidnapping, rape, armed robbery, residential burglary, grand theft, among others) and 13 minutes for priority three calls (minor accident, reckless driving, DUI,

among others). “Service is not good,” said Jim Benedict, chair of the Sheriff’s Sub-Committee and member of the Finance Committee. “This relationship is broken with the Sheriff’s Department right now.” According to the report, the response times in Del Mar for high priority calls are consistent with the response times for Solana Beach and Encinitas. The Sheriff’s Department indicates that from Jan. 1, 2013 through Oct. 23, 2013, the average response times for priority one and two calls was 9.8 minutes in Solana Beach, 9.8 minutes in Encinitas and 10.2 minutes in Del Mar. “The Sheriff’s Department is not only nationally known, but known throughout the world for quality service. As the station captain and essentially your chief of police, I believe in it,” said Sheriff’s Captain Robert Haley. “We work diligently to provide the best services. There are some limitations.

You have one deputy.” Haley noted that through the city’s contract, Del Mar has the full resources of the Sheriff’s Department. When 43,030 people visited the city on Opening Day at the racetrack, the department had about 50 officers on and around the site, he said. Losing the department’s support during the summer season was one of Deputy Mayor Lee Haydu’s concerns about creating an in-house department. “We’re a special city with special needs because we do have a beach that really takes so many tourists and we do have the fairgrounds,” Haydu said. “You cannot compare us to any other city around because they don’t have those things.” If Del Mar were to establish its own police department, it would cost the city more than $2.2 million compared to $1.97 million for the projected 2014-15 Sheriff’s contract, according to the report. “I’m a firm believer that you get what you pay for,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “If you want the fanciest police department with a nice police station it’s going to cost a lot and we’re going to have to plan a lot longer for it.” With this budget, a standalone department would employ 19 officers, 12 full-time and seven parttime. The city would have control and response times would improve. However, the staffing and cost of the transition period leading up to the department’s creation

could cost the city nearly $1 million, according to the report. “We definitely need more service one way or the another,” said Del Mar resident Bud Emerson. “I’m not urging you to make a quick decision on this,” he said to the council. “This is a big, strategic move and it’s important. I’m just urging you to take it seriously and not shelve it.” The council directed staff to use the recommendations in the report to develop a plan to measure improvements in areas such as response times and law enforcement presence. The report recommended that Del Mar change its contract to have one part-time detective instead of a full-time detective. The report also recommended the city obtain detailed data from the department to evaluate operations, encourage the department to place experienced lateral deputies in the city, and train patrol deputies to provide community outreach. The council also directed the Finance Committee to continue studying alternatives to the sheriff’s contract. If service doesn’t improve in a year, the city may decide to create its own department, council members said. “It’s one of the most important services that we can provide the community — fire, security, fixing the roads, providing water and sewer,” said Councilman Al Corti, who serves as a liaison to the Finance Committee. “We need to look at it seriously.”

PASEO continued from page 1 the recognized planning group for Carmel Valley,” wrote Kilroy in a letter to Ridz. “As you know, there have been numerous public meetings on the project both this year, 2013, and last year, 2012. There have been no changes to the project since the last public presentation to the Carmel Valley Planning Board in early August 2013 and we have been working very diligently to respond to your DEIR [Draft Environmental Impact Report] comment letter dated May 29, 2012.” While the Torrey Pines Community Planning Board is not the planning board of note for the project, Ridz said he still feels the Torrey Pines group’s voice needs to be heard. “We, as a community, are directly impacted by what happens in Carmel Valley,” Ridz said. The Torrey Pines planning board held its special meeting on Nov. 14 to address the public comment period for One Paseo’s re-circulated EIR [Environmental Impact Report], which includes two scaled-back alternatives of the proposed project that weren’t included in the original document. One alternative is half of the reduced project, about 800,000 square feet of retail, residential and office space. The other alternative is an 80,000-square-foot retail amenity. The Torrey Pines board did not talk much about the alternatives at the Nov. 14 meeting, but the board did set up an ad hoc committee to submit comments on the alternatives by the Dec. 10 deadline. The board’s main focus Nov. 14 was a discussion on the board’s public safety concerns, particularly emergency response times that board members believe will be hindered by One Paseo’s traffic clogging Del Mar Heights Road. Ridz said Del Mar Heights Road is the Torrey Pines’ area’s “emergency lifeline” as emergency services come to them from Station 24 near Torrey Pines High School in Carmel Valley (east of the I-5). From 1973 to 1993, Fire Station 24 was located on the Torrey Pines side of the I-5 on Mango Drive, but it moved to Carmel Valley as that community started to develop more. The Del Mar Fire Department’s station at the Del Mar Fairgrounds does not have an ambulance and the closest brush fire engines

— other than Station 24’s — are located in La Jolla Village and Rancho Santa Fe. Ridz said the generally accepted standard for emergency response times is 8 minutes, 90 percent of the time. Through project traffic studies, the public was told that travel time from One Paseo to the Interstate 5 ramps may increase by one to two minutes and the level of service during evening and morning rush hour will be rated the worst, a level of service “F.” Kilroy has pledged to provide traffic improvements, such as synchronized traffic lights to mitigate traffic impacts, but Ridz said he is doubtful about their efficacy and feels those extra minutes of delay could lead to loss of life. Ridz cited the American Heart Association’s position that a victim of cardiac arrest’s chances of survival are reduced by 7 to 10 percent with every minute that passes without defibrillation and advanced life support intervention. Torrey Pines board member Dee Rich expressed concern about the schools located west of I-5, such as Del Mar Hills and Del Mar Heights and their playing fields used for recreation and organized sports. She said she was angry that the city hasn’t encouraged a solution that would make it easier for ambulances to get to children in case of emergency. The Torrey Pines board members agreed to send a letter to District 1 Councilmember Sherri Lightner saying that they want her support on these public safety issues. “There needs to be some solution, no matter where the project goes, that we have response times that maintain the safety of our citizens,” Rich said. According to Bernie Turgeon, a city community planner, the city’s development services department plans to release the final EIR in February or March 2014. A recommendation from the Carmel Valley planning board will come before the planning commission hearing, which could be scheduled in April or May. “The project is on the fast track to the planning commission in my opinion,” Turgeon said.


COMMISSION continued from page 1 president of the 22nd DAA board. “It’s a balanced approach.” River park officials, however, wanted the commission to order the 22nd DAA to phase out its use of the southern one-third of its east overflow lot over the next 10 years, as recommended by Coastal Commission staff. In seeking the additional land for restoration, river park officials cited a study commissioned by the fairgrounds, which showed that a 4-acre section of the east lot had the potential to be transformed back into wetlands if it was no longer graded or used for parking. At its October meeting, the commission delayed a decision on the permit to allow the two sides to attempt to work out a compromise. At the time, the commission’s staff recommended approval of the permit without restrictions on the use of the east lot. “It was disappointing,” said river park JPA executive director Dick Bobertz of this week’s decision by the commission. “Particularly since the Coastal Commission staff had come around from their first recommendation to basically agree with us that the southern one-third (of the east overflow lot) should be preserved.” Proponents of preserv-

November 21, 2013 ing the additional land said the 22nd DAA’s own parking study showed there were options to make up for the loss of parking. But 22nd DAA board member Adam Day disagreed, contending that the additional loss of parking from the east lot would have dealt “a devastating blow to our operations.” Roberts praised the commission’s decision, noting that neither side got exactly what it wanted. “I believe the Coastal Commission found a way to keep the possibility of preserving more wetlands open, while allowing the fairgrounds to continue operations while we work together to seek a solution,” he said. The river park JPA will continue to urge that the southernmost portion of the east lot be restored to wetlands, said Bobertz, even if it means waiting for 10 years. “That’s our strong point. We never go away,” he said. The second permit approved by the commission on Nov. 13 brings the fairgrounds into compliance with coastal regulations for activities on its main property, and also allows a fall race meet to begin next year, in addition to the regular summer meet from late July through early September. The fall race meet will run from Nov. 5 through Dec. 7.

PROPERTY continued from page 2 feedback. “The committee worked so hard and so diligently on this, and that’s why it passed with an 85 percent vote,” said former Del Mar Mayor Brooke Eisenberg-Pike, who served on the steering committee. “You have to respect Measure B. You cannot undermine the integrity of Measure B. It was voted on by the public as an office project. I am not saying that we have to do that again. But I am saying that you can’t just do four-fifths


of the council and not have some kind of mail-in ballot that would give an advisory vote that people did want that change.” Former Del Mar Mayor David Druker, who served as a steering committee liaison, also approved of residential use and spoke in favor of a mail-in ballot. “I truly believe that we need to go to a vote of the people on this, because this is a major usage change,” Druker said. “People will be watching you to see what you do here. If will foretell the decisions and how you’re going

process to take 12-18 months. If staff led the project, the process would have taken 18-24 months, said Kathleen Garcia, planning and community development director. The process is estimated to cost between $145,000 and $270,000, with consultant fees ranging from $85,000 to $100,000, and environmental assessment costs ranging from $60,000 and $170,000. “I can see the stars are all aligned,” Councilwoman Sherryl Parks said. “It’s sort of a magic time to get this moving.” “I recognize Lee’s concern about staff time and resources, but I also think that this is an important opportunity to coordinate what the city is planning with what Winston School is planning,” Mayor Terry Sinnott said.


to make decisions on Watermark and the city hall project. Without a vote, it may propel people to want to pursue a Proposition A like in Encinitas, where any type of change to density or height, no matter what zone, would have to go to a vote of the people. I don’t think you want to go through that battle.” The council asked Druker, Eisenberg-Pike and the other committee members to present their recommendation by the Jan. 6 council meeting. After the council determines whether the change is a minor or major amendment to the plan, the city will send a survey to residents, requesting feedback on the decision. “I think we have to do this the Del Mar way,” Deputy Mayor Lee Haydu said. “We have to dot our I’s cross our T’s.”

San Diego Jewish Academy hosting communitywide Craft Fair Nov. 24 to benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines “While the entire world witnessed the complete devastation brought to the Philippines by Typhoon Haiyan,” said Alan Rusonik, San Diego Jewish Academy’s Director Judaic Studies, “my students were approaching me asking, ‘What are we going to do?’ Whether or not we would do something, was never a question.” The answer to their question is San Diego Jewish Academy’s Typhoon Relief Craft Fair. “One of our staff members regularly participates in local craft fairs,” added Rusonik. “She believed all of the vendors she works with would be happy to take part in a relief effort.” She was right. Close to 30 craft vendors have agreed to take part in SDJA’s Typhoon Relief Craft Fair to be held on Sunday, Nov. 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Suggested entry donation is only $5 per person (children under 12 free) and parking is free. One-hundred percent of the vendor fees raised (the fee crafters pay for participating) and 100 percent

The Craft Fair will benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. of the $5 admission fee will be donated to benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. The crafters will also be donating a portion of their sales from the fair. In addition, SDJA will be selling food and refreshments and 100 percent of those proceeds will also be donated. “We thought a craft fair would be an ideal way to engage the community while raising needed funds,” said Dustin Woods, dean of students for SDJA’s upper school. “It’s a perfect time – just before Thanksgiving and Chanukah – which happen to fall on the same day this year.” SDJA has a long history of organizing large-scale service projects that benefit the victims of natural disasters.

In 2005, the school raised over 30 tons of supplies for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, in 2010, SDJA raised over $100,000 worth of medical supplies for the victims of the Haiti earthquake, and in 2012, SDJA was able to raise over $22,000, which was donated directly to aid groups “on the ground.” “We know this will also be a teachable moment for our students,” added Daniel Sussman, SDJA’s lower school principal. “This is why we didn’t just ask our parents to donate money. Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) is a Jewish value we teach at our school, and the best way to learn is often through action.” Both SDJA parents and students – from preschool through high school — have been calling, e-mailing, and asking, “How can we help?” For more information on the craft fair, please contact Alan Rusonik at 858704-3738 or by e-mail at For more information about San Diego Jewish Academy, visit www.sdja. com

Community celebrates improvements at Solana Beach’s Eden Gardens BY KRISTINA HOUCK To suppress escalating drug and gang violence in Solana Beach’s Eden Gardens community, members of the public organized in September 2010 to encourage local youth to make positive choices and improve resources for all residents. From creating a community garden to launching a youth leadership camp, La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation continues to work toward building a better community. “We just felt that as a community, we needed to organize ourselves so that we can have more open communication and more accountability among the schools, the police and the city around what the community deserves,” said Manny Aguilar, president and board chairman of the foundation. “Our focus is to help facilitate healthy choices, healthy opportunities for our community, so that our kids can be successful academically, socially and make better choices for their futures.” Hosted by the foundation, community members and local officials gathered to celebrate the organization’s accomplishments Nov. 13 at La Colonia Park (see event photos on page 13). Foundation board members recognized their supporters, including San Diego County Supervisor Dave Roberts. During the event, participants of the foundation’s youth summer leadership camp presented videos of the event. Local youth who formed a chapter of the Friday Night Live program unveiled a series of photos of things they would like to change in and around the community. As part of the project, students will try to make those changes and follow up with a second exhibition of photos that show the evolution of their efforts. “There have been a lot of collaborations, because we’re all volunteers,” said Aguilar, who has lived in the community for 33 years. “We all work and we don’t have staff, so we try to partner with as many community services, businesses, organizations and individuals to make this a better community.”

Before the foundation became an official organization in June 2011, the group organized a community picnic that featured information about job training, charter schools and other community resources. “That was when the economy was really tough,” he said. “We wanted to make sure people knew there were resources out there.” Since then, other foundation projects have included a youth soccer program and a youth leadership camp. In April 2012, the foundation held a community forum to discuss social, educational and health issues affecting the quality of life in the community. With private donations and a $10,000 grant from Home Depot, the foundation established a neighborhood garden in October 2012 at St. Leo Mission Catholic Church in Eden Gardens. “We’re very happy with what we’ve been able to do,” Aguilar said. “But there’s so much more that we’d like to accomplish. We’d like to unite the community even more.” In addition to celebrating its accomplishments and thanking supporters, the foundation kicked off an overall needs assessment of the community and asked attendees to fill out a survey about their desires for Eden Gardens, as well as their concerns. The assessment, which will be done in collaboration with area school and city officials, is the next major project for the foundation, Aguilar said. “This is where I live. This is where we all live. We need to invest ourselves in our community,” Aguilar said. “The long-term goal is that we can take a step back so kids can take the lead and begin the process of advocating more directly for themselves. Kids can graduate from high school, go on to college and come back to our community to be the future leaders. That’s what we want.” To learn more about the La Colonia de Eden Gardens Foundation, visit

The “Compassion Campaign” of the San Diego Veterans For Peace begins its fourth year this fall, seeking donations from the public and purchasing and delivering new sleeping bag sets to the most needy of the 1,000 homeless sleeping on the streets and alleys in downtown San Diego. The campaign began in December 2010, when veteran chapter members learned from homeless vets on the street how a sleeping bag, waterproof stuff sack, and reusable poncho could change the lives of people on the street who had no protection from the elements at night. The chapter veterans set about to raise $3,000 and buy 100 sleeping bag sets. With the generous help of the public, over 1,800 sets have now been purchased and delivered quietly late at night by chapter veterans to the most needy homeless on the street. Many have nothing but their clothes and a piece of cardboard to sleep on.

Having purchased its first sets locally, sets are now purchased for $33 each from the Coleman Company in Colorado, in quantities of 50, well below wholesale, with Coleman paying the freight and charging no sales tax. Bags are a great value San Diego Veterans for Peace thanks the Coleman Company. As the cold weather and occasional rain is now upon us, San Diego Veterans for Peace asks that you consider a donation to the “Compassion Campaign,” which may be made on- line with a credit card or by mail with a check. In either case, the organization’s treasurer, a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer, will immediately provide you with a beautiful card of thanks and receipt for your taxes, as San Diego Veterans for Peace is a 501-C-3 non-profit veterans educational organization. One-hundred percent of your donation buys gear. To donate by credit card: and to donate by check, send your check to: SDVFP, 12932 Sunderland Street, Poway, CA 92064. For more information, please call 858-342-1964.

ART continued from page 1 “Tree Pose,” the sculpture depicts a person standing on one foot and stretching toward the sky. Council members and staff noted the city has received requests from the public to permanently display the statue. In May, the Public Arts Advisory Commission, which oversees the community’s art programs, recommended the city purchase the piece. Priced at $8,000, Yoga Tree will be purchased with funds from the city’s reserve public art account. As of June 2013, there is nearly $140,000 in the account, and $111,820 is available to acquire public arts, among other projects. Yoga Tree will remain at its current site for at least three years, with the option to relocate the piece in 2017. Mayor Mike Nichols and Councilman David Zito, both PAAC standing committee members, reiterated that the funds used to purchase the piece did not come from the general fund but money intended to purchase art. “It’s a very good price,” Zito said. “It’s a very well loved piece.”

Solana Beach Foundation for Learning kicks off fund drive

The “Yoga Tree.” Photo/Kristina Houck Launched in 2008, the Temporary Public Art Program allows artists to donate their work for at least six months and up to two years to be on display in a public right-of-way in the city. Through the program, the city saves money while artists gain exposure. Installation costs about $500 for each piece, which comes from the city’s public art fund. The artists agree to pay for any needed upkeep or maintenance.

The Solana Beach Foundation for Learning Annual Fund drive offers parents an opportunity to help kids discover new ideas in science, physical education, art and technology. The Solana Beach Foundation for Learning (SBFL) recently kicked off its Annual Fund Drive to support art, physical education, science, and technology programs in the Solana Beach School District. The Solana Beach School District consists of 3,035 children in six elementary schools, including Carmel Creek, Skyline, Solana Highlands, Solana Pacific, Solana Santa Fe and Solana Vista. SBFL is a nonprofit organization made up of volunteers who raise funds to make it possible for these children to experience and discover new ideas by providing instructional staff, materials, and supplies for hands-on learning in art, science, physical education and technology. “Other local school districts have had to cut science labs, physical education, technology and art programs from their schools,” says SBFL President Bryan Pruden. “But thanks to our continued donations, the kids in the Solana Beach School District are still enjoying these programs.” The Solana Beach Foundation for learning is dedicated to bridging the gap between vital school needs and state funding so as to enrich the educational experience of all the students in the Solana Beach School District.

BY KRISTINA HOUCK When her 7-year-old daughter refused to sing during the voice lessons she purchased at an auction, Anna Danes stepped in. The Solana Beach resident didn’t realize she would discover her true passion. “I love the expression of singing,” Danes said. “The songs that I like are what I consider American songs and standards. It’s the classics that we all grew up with. “They’ve always been an inspiration. To be singing these songs now — it’s awesome! I just love jazz.” Now 9, her daughter opted for guitar lessons, while Danes recorded her first album. Family, friends and neighbors celebrated the release of “Longing” during a party Nov. 15 at Coast Highway Photography in Solana Beach (photos from the event are on this page). Owner and photographer Kevin Connors captured the photos for Danes’ album cover. “I’m excited!” said Danes at the party. “It’s such a community event. So many people who live and work here have helped me with this project. That’s why I wanted to keep it local.” Now available at local retailers such as Coast Highway Photography, the album will be released on iTunes and on

Anna Danes Photo/Jon Clark Danes’ website Feb. 11, just before Valentine’s Day. “It’s appropriate because it’s an album about love and longing for it,” Danes said. “Longing” features a dozen jazz covers, including “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” “Killing Me Softly” and “Sweet Valentine.” “The music, to me, is beautiful. The melodies are beautiful,” Danes said. “The sentiments are about wanting love and missing love. Everybody can relate to that.” Born in Gdansk, Poland, Danes was 10 years old when her family escaped Communist rule and vacationed in Sweden. After her father landed an engineer position in Ottawa, the family settled in Canada.

While adapting to a different culture and learning English and French, Danes also struggled with her parents’ divorce. She used music to escape and joined a Polish church choir in Ottawa. Until now, that was the only music experience she had. Danes earned her bachelor’s degree in ancient history and archaeology from the University of Ottawa and studied law at the University of Windsor. She practiced family and estate law as an attorney in Toronto prior to relocating to California 14 years ago. Since then, Danes became a business owner and mother. In addition to promoting her album, Danes said she would soon announce upcoming shows. Already looking forward to making more music, she is also considering recording a Christmas album. “Once you catch the bug, it’s hard to stop,” said Danes, who moved from San Marcos to Solana Beach in 2011. “You just never know where life is going to take you. Sometimes difficulty comes in your life, but you’ve got to turn it around and create something positive. That’s what I did.” For more information about Danes or to preview her album, visit

Del Mar Village Association History Committee releases second commemorative historical ornament BY KAREN POWELL, DEL MAR VILLAGE ASSOCIATION BOARD MEMBER In celebration of Del Mar’s recent designation as a Certified Main Street and the upcoming holiday season, the History Committee of the Del Mar Village Association has just announced the release of its second commemorative historical ornament. This colorful decoration depicts the Del Mar Library, historically known as St. James Catholic Church. The building, located on the corner of 13th Street and Camino Del Mar, was the first Catholic Church in town. The first Mass at St. James was held upon its completion in 1914 despite its lack of lighting, pews or an altar. The Parish continued to grow over the years and was eventually forced to relocate to Solana Beach where it was able to accommodate its burgeoning congregation. Rather than fall prey to a wrecking ball, the building interior was redesigned in 1971 and converted into a fish restaurant called The Albatross. Pancho’s Restaurant later followed The Albatross, and shortly thereafter the building was transformed into commercial office space. The City was able to purchase the building in 1994 at a cost of $1.2 million. In 1997, after considerable fund raising on the part of The Friends of the Del Mar Library, the old St. James Church building was able to open its doors once again and welcome the public at the new Del Mar Library. To this day it remains an historical treasure and a cornerstone of the Del Mar Village. The first commemorative historical ornament depicting Stratford Square made its debut in 2011. This prominent building on the corner of 15th Street and Camino Del Mar was originally known as the Kockritz Building. It housed a drugstore, soda fountain, grocery store, barbershop, doctor, and dress shop. It was built in 1927 in an Old English architectural style to match the Del Mar Hotel and surrounding buildings. Stratford Square has been host to numerous inhabitants since its inception, from its original local service businesses to street level shops, second story apartments, offices, restaurants and a museum of local history. The decaying building was purchased and renovated by local developer Jim Watkins in 1971, and became a designated historical


The new Del Mar Library ornament. landmark in 1978. Both Stratford Square and the Del Mar Library commemorative ornaments are available for sale at the Del Mar Community & Visitor Center located at 1104 Camino Del Mar, Suite #1. The DMVA History Committee plans to release a new commemorative historical ornament each year. — The Del Mar Village Association is dedicated to enhancing the vitality of the village of Del Mar while preserving its history and unique character.

The overall winner and female champion was Carmel Valley resident Christina Kamme. Thomas Lopez and Mark Jones tied for the male championship. “Being a vet myself I wanted to pay tribute to all those that have served this great nation so I decided to host this event over Veterans Day weekend,” said Joe Decker, founder of Gut Check Fitness. At the race, a wall was set up where participants posted photos of veterans they cared about. “Each time racers passed the flag they were required to turn and salute the flag and the vets,” Decker said. “This is one of he most grueling four-hour events in the world, as well as the most inspiring.” Gut Check runs boot camps throughout the week at the Carmel Valley Recreation Center, Sage Canyon Park, Torrey Hills School and Torrey Hills Neighborhood Park.

San Diego Mayor’s Update BY TODD GLORIA, INTERIM MAYOR, CITY OF SAN DIEGO Dear Friends, November is synonymous with Thanksgiving Day. I look forward to sharing a special holiday meal with family and friends and giving thanks for all my blessings. With Thanksgiving as November’s main event, it’s easy to lose sight of other things I’m thankful for besides food on the fourth Thursday of the month. Here are some other things for which I am truly grateful. Our veterans whose service and sacrifice is unparallelled. Pictured at right is my great grandmother, Dolly Avery, standing between her sons, my great uncle Forest on the left and my grandfather Charles on the right. Both men served honorably in the U.S. Armed Forces. My grandfather arrived in San Diego from Oklahoma in 1943. His move from the Midwest made me a native San Diegan. I owe them and all our acting and retired service men and women my thanks for their dedication to our country. So many service members are overseas this Thanksgiving and don’t get to pass the mashed potatoes or carve the turkey with their parents, spouses, children and siblings. Our first responders, trash collectors, street

crews and others making up the City’s 10,000-person workforce who provide vital services we all rely on each day. Their efforts keep our City’s engine running. My Council colleagues who focus on improving their neighborhoods and look for ways to make San Diego’s economy more robust. They are dedicated public servants who strive every day to make San Diego an even better place to live. Those who are caregivers to our ill, our elderly and our homeless. By way of example, their service and big hearts remind us to practice patience and empathy toward all our neighbors. For being born and raised in a city that has such a varied and vibrant cultural identity. This is the town where a Native American, Filipino, Puerto Rican, Dutch son of a maid and a gardener became the Interim Mayor of San Diego. This is the town where I have lumpia and tamales next to the turkey and stuffing on my Thanksgiving plate. Finally, I am thankful for the ability to serve. I ask for your continued patience and participation as we draw closer to electing a new mayor for San Diego. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Let Solana Beach City Council set policy for Center It’s time for the sponsors of the Party Initiative to stop blaming the Solana Beach City Council for the cost of the election. Their Initiative petition and cover letter to the City requested a “Special Election” and asked that the election, “be called and scheduled at the earliest possible date after the qualification of this initiative.” How much clearer could their intentions be? The group had a maximum of six months to turn in their petition and if they had waited only a couple of weeks the Initiative could have been included in the June 2014 primary election. This would have saved the city at least $180,000. Let’s let our elected City Council set the policy for the Fletcher Cove Community Center. Look around the city. It looks great. The City Council is doing a great job. Vote “No” on the Party Policy Initiative. Joe Behrmann Solana Beach LETTERS POLICY: Topical letters to the editor are encouraged. Submissions should include a full name, address, e-mail address (if available) and a telephone number for verification purposes. We do not publish anonymous letters and there are length limits. E-mailed submissions are preferred to Letters may be edited. The letters/columns published are the author’s opinion only and do not reflect the opinion of this newspaper.

Interim Mayor Todd Gloria

The Initiative policy is too lenient I read Mrs. Boyd’s remarks in last week’s edition and I take issue with her comment, “the people who signed the petition are clear about what it says...” I signed the petition and I was not informed that by signing I was agreeing to a $200,000 Special Election and I was not told that the City Council had established a compromise policy that allows the residents to rent the Fletcher Cove Community Center. Had I known the city policy was in place I would not have signed the petition. The Initiative policy is too lenient. I am not in favor of allowing private rentals of the Community Center on two days of every weekend for 100 guests. That level of use will impact everyone that drives to the Fletcher Cove area on weekends. Where will people park during the summer? I will be voting “No” on the Initiative. Joe Crocamo Solana Beach

GUNS continued from page 3 Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe. “Sometimes people inherit guns from family members and don’t know what to do with them. Sometimes people have children in the house, so they don’t want guns in the house. This is an opportunity to get rid of unwanted guns.” More than 200 firearms were collected during a five-hour “Guns for Gift Cards” event in May at the San Marcos sheriff’s station, Zermeno said. The latest exchange will take place from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. at MiraCosta College’s San

Elijo Campus, 3333 Manchester Ave., Cardiff. Gun owners are asked to place unloaded firearms in the trunk of their car and follow the instructions of officers at the event. Handguns are worth a $100 gift card and assault rifles are worth a $150 gift card. All weapons will be destroyed. The Sheriff’s Department is partnering with several agencies for the “Guns for Gift Cards” exchange, including the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, MiraCosta Community College, San Diego Police and Oceanside Police.

New ownership brings new possibilities — Hope springs eternal BY GORDON CLANTON The new owners of the Del Mar Heights Village shopping center (on Del Mar Heights Road at Mango Drive) circulated a questionnaire that purported to gather community input regarding the future of the center. Apparently I have lost my copy of the questionnaire. Nevertheless, based on what I have seen happen when other shopping centers were bought and sold, I have the following neighborly suggestions for the new owners, Donahue Schriber, a real estate investment firm that owns and manages 74 shopping centers in California, Arizona, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington — including the Del Mar Highlands Town Center in Carmel Valley. (1) Don’t raise rents so that well-established, familyowned, local-serving businesses are driven out. New owners usually borrow lots of money to buy a shopping center, so they raise lease rates. Sometimes they also “re-measure” the space and determine that it

is larger t h a n previously believed, thus justifying a d d i tional rent increases. New owners often assess business owners for alleged “improvements.” Because centers usually sell for more than their previously assessed value, business owners typically face substantial property tax increases. This financial quadruple-whammy is more than many small businesses can survive. Most cannot raise the price of their product or service in order to cover the increased costs. (2) Don’t build additional buildings in the parking lot. This would result in a shortage of parking and a worsening of traffic congestion. I avoid shopping centers where I cannot park easily. (3) Don’t make parking spaces any narrower. I avoid shopping centers with spaces so narrow that I cannot

park without risking dings. (4) Don’t make it any harder to get into or out of the center. I mention this because of the maddening circulation patterns at Donahue Schriber’s other nearby property, Del Mar Highlands Town Center. For example, I can easily access my bank, which is near the Del Mar Heights Road entrance to the center. But to get out of the center, because of various barriers and one-way passages, I must drive through the congested parking lot into the heavy traffic in front of the Ralphs supermarket and then break into a never-ending parade of cars that moves, very slowly, toward the exit. Best plan for Del Mar Heights Village: No major expansion. No reduction of parking. No additional congestion. And find a tenant for the long-vacant Del Mar Diner Gordon Clanton teaches Sociology at San Diego State University. He welcomes comments at

Education Matters/Opinion Policy changed for questioning of students by school authorities BY MARSHA SUTTON Several weeks ago, I presented the first of two recent policy Marsha Sutton changes at the San Dieguito Union High School District, on “Discipline” – and promised a discussion the following week of the second policy change, “Questioning by Law Enforcement.” That scheduled column was pre-empted after I discovered an error on San Dieguito tax bills, which became the subject of several, more pressing columns. To now return to the policy change issue, the new policy on Questioning by Law Enforcement (#5145.11) was updated to reflect a new court decision (Camreta v. Greene) “which vacated the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision that required law enforcement to have parental consent, warrant, or other court order to interview a student in school absent exigent circumstances,” according to the board report. This got my attention because I recently wrote about a case in Kentucky where the rights of a high school student were judged violated by the Kentucky Supreme Court after his school expelled him for possession and sale of a controlled substance. In this case, according to the story in Education Week, “A high school student’s statements to an assistant principal about giving prescription pills to other students had to be suppressed in a criminal proceeding because the student had not been given a Miranda warning.” The ruling stated that students must be read their Miranda rights before school district administrators can question them about possible illegal activity. But apparently Kentucky law does not travel past state boundaries. Although the offense may be expellable, should students be routinely denied their basic Miranda rights when questioned by school authorities? And with only their accusers in the room, are they further denied fundamental rights when parents or attorneys are prohibited from being with them during questioning? Miranda rights for students run head-on against the concept of in loco parentis, the Latin term for “in place of a parent.” In this application of the term, this refers to the legal right schools have to act as substitute parents when students are at school and under school supervision. “Once a kid’s on campus, we become their parent and

we become responsible for them,” said Rick Ayala, SDUHSD’s director of pupil services and alternative programs. This policy gives schools the right to interrogate students and “to allow a police officer to come in and question a kid,” he said. After we discussed the issue, Ayala said he checked with school district lawyers who told him that school officials are indeed able to question kids without first informing their parents. “According to counsel, it is legal and there are no court decisions that have changed that,” he said. “We can interview kids and bring in law enforcement and not have to notify parents.” If the student is arrested, however, “we try to call the parents and let them know where they’re at and what the situation is,” he said. But in loco parentis does not extend to violations of civil liberties, so gray areas exist, as evidenced by the afore-mentioned phrase in the San Dieguito policy which states “… absent exigent circumstances.” “I understand the rights part of it, but if we had to get a parent in there any time we had to question a kid about anything, whether it was serious or very simple, it would tie up our jobs and we’d be doing that all day long and not do the rest of our jobs,” Ayala said. It’s this line in the board policy that’s particularly troubling: “… the principal or designee shall attempt to notify student’s parent/guardian as soon as practicable after the law enforcement officer has interviewed the student on school premises.” [italics mine] In an email, Ayala wrote: “School officials do not need to notify a student’s parent/guardian of an interview by a law enforcement official on school grounds until it is practical after the interview has been conducted. School officials will immediately notify a parent/guardian if the student is removed from school in the custody of law enforcement.” Note that, before the change, the policy read: “Except in cases of child abuse or neglect, the principal or designee shall attempt to notify the student’s parent/ guardian when [a] law enforcement officer requests an interview on school premises.” This was changed to: “Except in cases of child abuse or neglect, the principal or designee shall attempt

to notify the student’s parent/guardian as soon as practicable after the law enforcement officer has interviewed the student on school premises.” Removed from SDUHSD policy is the following: “At the law officer’s discretion and with the student’s approval, the principal or designee may be present during the interview. The law officer should advise the student that he/she has the right to remain silent, but that he/she is encouraged to cooperate with law enforcement … If in the course of the interview the law officer finds it necessary to remove the student from school so as to better aid the investigation, the principal or designee shall first ascertain the reason for such action.” So to be clear, many protections of student rights have been removed from board policy. “I can see both sides,” Ayala said. “As a parent I can see that I would want to know. But I do see for the purposes of conducting an investigation how if I’m considered the parent while the kid’s with me at school then I have the right to give law enforcement the opportunity to interview the kid.” Ayala said that police have fewer rights than school officials because police need probable cause and school officials only need reasonable suspicion. And there is a distinction between the two. “As school officials we have more search rights than cops,” he said, citing, for example, the confiscation of cell phones on demand, the use of breathalyzers, or asking students to empty their pockets. And even though 18-year-old students are considered adults under the law, the authority of in loco parentis still applies when they are at school, Ayala said. Court ruling The case cited in the new board policy on Questioning by Law Enforcement, Camreta v. Greene, is an odd basis by which to alter policy. The case involves a then 9-year-old girl from Oregon who was questioned, some say badgered, at school for hours, without a warrant or parental consent, after officials from Child Protective Services heard of possible sexual abuse. The girl’s mother claimed her daughter was denied Fourth Amendment protection which states in part: “The right of the people to be secure in their per-

sons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated …” Many child-advocacy groups supported the mother, citing the potential for an abuse of power by state authorities who, upon little more than hearsay evidence and with minimal accountability, can interrogate young children for hours until “the right answers” are provided. This, some claim, denies innocent children the rights given even to alleged criminals. According to written reports, the District Court sided with the officials, and the Ninth Circuit affirmed the decision. The Court of Appeals first ruled that seizing the girl “absent a warrant, court order, parental consent, or exigent circumstances” violated the Constitution but noted that the officials were entitled to immunity because no clearly established law had warned them that their conduct was illegal. In March 2011, when the girl was nearly 18, the case went to the Supreme Court which vacated the lower court’s decision. It’s complicated, because children can easily become victims of an over-zealous state that browbeats the scared and young, who are alone in a room with strangers, into saying things not true. On the other hand, parents who abuse their children cannot be contacted for permission to allow authorities who, out of genuine concern for the child’s welfare, need to question the child


and work to remove them from negligent parents and harmful home environments. Child sexual abuse falls into a different category than other kinds of cases more frequently occurring in high schools: for example, the possession, sale or use of illegal drugs or alcohol; weapons violations; and violent threats against teachers, students or property. To be clear, San Dieguito is likely not alone with this policy change. Ayala said the California School Boards Association reviews policies and makes recommendations to school districts throughout the state on a quarterly basis, after CSBA lawyers analyze legalities and establish guidelines based on any new developments. Interested readers can Google the case to learn more details. But for the purposes of the new San Dieguito board policy, the district appears to be relying upon the ruling that search and seizure to interrogate children without notifying parents or obtaining a warrant is not judged unlawful. It’s difficult to understand how the Camreta v. Greene judgment should be broadly applied across the board, but one can easily see how the over-application of this ruling can allow school authorities to detain and interrogate children in ways we would never tolerate for adults.

San Dieguito Union High School District Superintendent Rick Schmitt’s Monthly Update Superintendent Rick Schmitt plans to update the greater San Dieguito Union High School District community through the local media with a monthly update. Topics covered will include curriculum, facilities, budget, safety, and other specific and special interest topics. Today’s update focuses on your property tax bill, technology and plans for a new middle school in Pacific Highlands Ranch. BY RICK SCHMITT As many of you know, property tax statements were mailed in October with an incorrect tax rate for Proposition AA. Once the error was discovered, the District, the Treasurer-Tax Collector, and the Auditor-Controller of the County of San Diego all took responsibility to correct the mistake. The County mailed letters to every affected property owner and new statements Rick Schmitt were sent before the first payment was due. Anybody who paid the incorrect amount will be refunded the difference. The District would like to thank the Treasurer-Tax Collector and County for working so quickly to ensure that all taxpayers will only pay the correct amount. We have all promised to work together to make certain this will not happen again. We encourage anyone who may have questions about their tax bill to contact the Tax Collection customer service staff at (877) 829-4732. One of the major priorities of Proposition AA is the upgrading of network technology infrastructure at each of our schools. Bond funds will be focused entirely on improving our network bandwidth, power, and wireless access so that any device a student or teacher wants to use on the network will have a fast and reliable connection. With more instructional content making its way online and traditional applications moving to browser-based cloud computing, it’s important that we build a network that will support any device accessing the curriculum, whether it is owned by the school or a student. Over the next three years, we will upgrade local networks, wireless access, servers, media centers, and classroom technology at all of our ten campuses. While we would love to accomplish all of this work over a summer, the upgrades must be methodically phased in at each campus and, in some instances, wait for other structural bond projects to happen before the technology improvements can be completed. To keep updated on our bond projects and schedules, refer back to the Prop AA website at The San Dieguito Union High School District will open a new middle school in the Carmel Valley area in the fall of 2015. The as of yet unnamed school will be very near to Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) off of Village Center Loop and will be designed to initially accommodate approximately 500 students with the ability to expand to accommodate up to 1,000 students should population growth call for this. While the new middle school will be very close to CCA, attendance at the new middle school will not provide students with any advantage if they ultimately choose to apply to attend CCA for high school. The construction of this middle school will allow us to decrease the size of Carmel Valley MS to somewhere in the neighborhood of 900-1,000 students. The current plan calls for the new school to open with 7th graders only in fall of 2015 and grow to include both 7th and 8th graders in fall of 2016. Student attendance at this new school will be determined by attendance boundaries and these boundaries will be determined in the spring of 2014. These boundaries will be determined through a process that will examine demographic projections and existing elementary and middle school boundaries and will include input from parents, community members, and elementary and SDUHSD educators. One of our priorities in developing our new middle school boundaries is to do our best to ensure that students from individual feeder elementary schools are not forced to attend different middle schools.

San Diego Pros team up to help Philippine disaster victims at Carmel Valley event Nov. 22-23 North Shore Girls Softball League opens spring A group of local professional athletes will rally together to support Philippine disaster North Shore Softball league players.

registration for new season of ‘Aloha’

A local softball league will be playing with renewed inspiration after a landmark trip to Hawaii. The North Shore Girls Softball League’s name was created from its North San Diego location. But over the summer, two softball teams played in Hawaii as part of the League’s 25-year anniversary celebration. League President John Wood said the high level of play and the extraordinary hospitality shown to the players and families impressed him. “We were touched by their aloha spirit and sense of ‘Ohana’ or family, which made for an incredibly heart-warming and memorable experience for the girls and their parents,” he said. Two teams played in the Paradise Tournament on Oahu. The 10U team took 3rd place in their division. More importantly, Wood hopes to embody the same spirit of ‘Aloha’ in the 2014 recreational season. “The trip reaffirmed our commitment to creating positive experiences for every player to build their physical and emotional confidence,” said Wood. “And through this great sport we can also bring parents and the community together.” Registration is now open for the Spring Season. Those who register by Nov. 25 will be guaranteed a spot on a team. Evaluations for 10U, 12U and 14U players will be held on Jan. 11, 2014 and the Carmel Valley Recreational Center.

victims, and they’re asking San Diego residents to help with donations of food, summer clothing, toiletries or monetary gifts for the Red Cross and Catholic relief services. One of the most devastating storms to ever make landfall, Typhoon Haiyan has affected the lives of 10 million people and caused more than 4,000 casualties, according to U.N. estimates. Organized by San Diego residents Karen Moyer and her husband, former World Series Champion pitcher Jamie Moyer, the donation drive will be held on Friday, Nov. 22, and Saturday, Nov. 23, from 7 a.m to 7 p.m, at the St. Therese of Carmel Church parking lot. Jamie Moyer, former Padres ace Trevor Hoffman, and former San Diego Charger John Carney will be among the pros on hand collecting donations at various times throughout the two-day drive. Please see below for specifics regarding acceptable donations. “Disasters like this are as overwhelming as they are heartbreaking,” said Karen Moyer, co-founder and vice president of the Moyer Foundation. “But every little bit really does help. So we’re doing what we can as a community here in San Diego to make a difference.” The Moyers have organized similar and successful donation drives in the past. In response to the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, Karen and Jamie worked with the Seattle Mariners to fill a tractor-trailer with donations at Safeco Field. They hosted a similar event during Philadelphia Phillies spring training for victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The 50-plus-foot trailer and logistics assistance for this weekend’s donation drive is being provided by Alexander’s Mobility Services and Atlas Van Lines, with the help of The Dingman Group, Inc.

Del Mar doctor-turned-author launches fifth book in honor of girl who died of a brain tumor

Beverly Mangerich, Robin Rady and Ashley Cadell. Courtesy photo

Carmel Valley breast cancer survivor donates medical record organizers to other patients BY KRISTINA HOUCK From MRI, CT scans and blood work results, to appointment reminders and handwritten notes, Carmel Valley resident Robin Rady quickly acquired a variety of paperwork after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011. “I had papers in my car, papers in my kitchen, papers in my office, papers everywhere, and I saw how quickly this could get out of hand,” said Rady, who was diagnosed and treated at the Scripps Polster Breast Care Center at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. “I created a medical records binder for myself as a way to take control of my disorganized self and bring some order to this already stressful time.” Impressed with the organized binder Rady brought to every appointment, one of her doctors asked her to share her binder at a Scripps event. This prompted her to begin assembling and donating binders for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients. “I created this binder as a way of giving back and,

hopefully, other patients like me will benefit from a little organizational help,” she said. “There may have been days when I couldn’t find my car keys, but ask me for my pathology reports, and I could give them to you in two seconds flat.” With the assistance of Nurse Educator Beverly Mangerich, Rady organized a focus group with patients to learn what they wanted in their binders. Diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2012, Ashley Cadell was the first patient to receive the early edition of Rady’s binder. “When you go through cancer, it’s truly the only part of this whole process that you really can have any control over,” said Cadell, who lives in La Jolla. Then 38 years old, Cadell was also diagnosed and treated at the Scripps Polster Breast Care Center at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. She received the binder the day after she was diagnosed. Cadell noted that her oncologist is so used to see

BY KRISTINA HOUCK Maddie James loved the ocean. One of her favorite places to visit was the Ocean Institute at Dana Point Harbor. Although the 5-year-old lost her battle to an inoperable brain tumor in 2011, her love of the ocean lives on through a new learning center at the institute and a recently published book. Written by Del Mar resident Dr. Udo Wahn and Pete Hodgson, “For the Sake of Hugh Manatee” follows Maddie and Hugh the manatee on a stand-up paddleboard adventure. During the story, the pair discovers some of the problems affecting the watershed that are adversely impacting the ocean and its life forms. “Every morning when she woke up she would say, ‘What adventure are we going on today?” said Maddie’s mother, Kajsa James. “Every day was an adventure. In my world, I think this is my way of continuing to go on adventures with her.” A portion of the book’s proceeds will support the Maddie James Seaside Learning Center, which opened in May at the Ocean Institute. Maddie’s parents cofounded the Maddie James Foundation to raise $1 million for the construction and ongoing operation of the $4 million center. The new center introduces students and other visitors to current and emerging issues in oceanography, environmental science and maritime history. More than 115,000 K-12 students and 8,000 teachers annually participate in the institute’s immersion-style programs. “With her love of the ocean, this little girl has had a seaside learning center named after her and a book written about her,” said

Maddie and Kajsa James Wahn, who has lived in Del Mar for 30 years. “Children now have an opportunity to have a hands-on experience with sea life at the center. With the book, I hope children will learn it’s important to be aware of what’s happening in places that are distant from the ocean. What’s happening can have a major impact on the ocean and on its sea life.” “For the Sake of Hugh Manatee” is Wahn’s fifth children’s book. A physician and avid surfer, the 59-yearold started writing when his then 2-year-old son Paolo Cabo began taking swimming lessons at the Noonan Family Swim School in Del Mar. “I wanted to inspire him to learn about surfing, ocean safety and the aloha spirit,” Wahn said. “The aloha spirit really just encompasses sharing, being kind and living in harmony with the environment. That something’s that’s been really important to me and I wanted him to learn some of those lessons.” A story and a series of sketches for his son led to Wahn’s first book, “Cabo & Coral Go Surfing” in 2007. Since then, he has released

(Right) Dr. Udo Wahn Courtesy photos three more books about Cabo — who was inspired by his namesake, Wahn’s 9-year-old son — and Coral. A New York native and environmental activist, Wahn has surfed for more than 30 years along the shorelines of Australia, Costa Rica, southwestern France, Mexico and Hawaii. He has also served as a core volunteer for Surfrider Foundation since 1986. “I enjoy having children happy with my product, having parents happy, having teachers happy, and, hopefully, making a difference in the world and our environment,” Wahn said. Through social media, Wahn learned that GoPro photographer and videographer Hodgson had an idea for a children’s book and needed a children’s book author. After selecting

Wahn, the pair collaborated on “For the Sake of Hugh Manatee,” along with Kajsa James and illustrator Ron Croci. “I think any children’s book that you pick up and take the time to read to your children is good time spent,” James said. “This one in particular, with its message, is very important. “Use that time and cherish that time with your children.” For more information and to purchase “For the Sake of Hugh Manatee,” visit For more information about the Cabo and Coral series, visit

Local couple launch unique custom fragrance company ‘Pastiche’

La Jolla Cultural Partners

BY KAREN BILLING Entrepreneurial husband and wife team Bill and Dana Knees have used their business sense to launch a new business that specializes in scents. Their company, Pastiche, allows people to mix their own perfumes, sold at fun and festive privately-hosted parties and events. “I believe we’re bringing what most people think is an unaffordable luxury and we’re making it affordable,” Dana said. While Pastiche is not the first custom fragrance company, Dana believes they are the first social selling company. Launching officially two weeks ago, she has 20 designers on her team hosting parties in San Diego and selected markets around the country. “It makes me feel good because I can create jobs, I can help people supplement their income or do well enough to run their own business,” Knees said. “And I’m doing something that I really love and enjoy, I’m back in the fragrance world that I love.” Pastiche is getting a lot of attention during the holiday season. It was featured at Nativity School’s holiday boutique and was a part of the Rancho Santa Fe Senior Center’s silver anniversary party held Nov. 16 at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. Pastiche will also be available at the “Sip, Shop and Style” event at 20 Lounge; the boutique nail bar in Cardiff on Nov. 21 from 5-8 p.m.; the Horizon Prep’s holiday boutique on Nov. 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and at The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe’s first annual holiday boutique to benefit the Rancho Coastal Humane Society on Dec. 10. from 4-7 p.m. Dana, a Kentucky native, had been in the fragrance industry for over 25 years in New York, working for Unilever (where she met Bill) and Coty Beauty in sales and marketing. She also had the opportunity to work at a perfume house, as the vice president of global development at Robertet. “It was my favorite job out of everything in the industry because that’s where I really learned to appreciate the art of perfumery,” said Dana of her work with master perfumers, of which there are only about 500 worldwide. “It was my dream job.” The Knees eventually moved to California to pursue an-

Bill and Dana Knees started Pastiche. other dream, to live and raise their children in California and for Bill to become the chief marking officer at Callaway Golf. Dana knew she wanted to continue working but wanted it to be something entrepreneurial. After Bill left Callaway they started exploring their options together. “I was ready for something new and different, something really fun. When we discovered the social selling model for Pastiche, we loved it because we’re both so social. The idea of doing parties for a living sounded pret-

ty good,” Bill said. “Plus Dana and I are really compatible. She’s great at the creative and I’m great at the business side, so we work well together.” “We respect one another and there are no egos,” Dana said. It was Bill that came up with the name Pastiche, a French word for pulling individual pieces of art together to create a masterpiece. It was a perfect fit for Dana’s selected logo, a fleur-de-lis with a heart in the center. The Knees started test marketing their idea a year ago in Northern California, New York and Kentucky to see if it would work and the results were promising. Pastiche’s fragrance designers become independent consultants, buying a starter kit to go out and host parties. Pastiche pays 40 percent commission, which Dana said is very strong in the industry. “We wanted people to be able to buy in and really make money off the bat,” Dana said, noting each designer can also recruit three deep that they receive a percentage of. There is a basic script to follow but the designers can get creative in how they host a party.

Pastiche custom-made perfumes. Courtesy photos Dana likes all of the parties she hosts to begin in the kitchen, after all “perfume is so inspired by flavor,” she says. She likes to whip up her special “Pastiche Pizza”— a pizza crust slathered with pesto and topped with arugula, mushrooms, diced pear, cheese and a surprise ingredient of white chocolate chips, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and agave honey. Building a fragrance can be a lot like loading a pizza or, as Bill explains it, like making an ice cream sundae. You start with a base and then add different toppings to balance it out.

Flower Hill Promenade welcomes new Cucina Enoteca BY KELLEY CARLSON eople are welcome to have a seat at Cucina Enoteca — literally and figuratively. At this modern Italian kitchen-meets-rustic farmhouse concept eatery — which recently took over the former Chevy’s location in Flower Hill Promenade — guests will discover a “restaurant to retail” environment. Everything is for sale, from Italian entrees on the menu and bottles of wine stocked near the entrance, to the customized furniture and lighting. Owner Tracy Borkum completely redesigned the space (using repurposed and reclaimed materials) and filled it with her eclectic array of creations and locally procured vintage wares, such as orange-wire bend chairs and relish jar candles. Large windows permit plenty of natural light by day, and at night, the establishment is glowing from candlelit tables and custom-made chandeliers suspended from the high ceilings. Guests can be found chattering over the soft background music while seated around the two large communal tables in the main dining room, or making new acquaintances at the bar. Kids have can fun at the seating area that wraps around the pizza oven, watching chefs toss dough high into the air, then spreading tomato sauce and piling cheese onto their own pies. A side dining room offers a more quiet and intimate experience. A “garden in the sky” awaits above. Patrons travel up the stairs past a “curtain” of model-sized horses to the second-story deck, which is abundant with foliage and offers views of the area. There, they can

lounge on colorful couches, rock gently in a swing for two, or savor specialty cocktails, wines, and Italian artisan brews at the bar. “You feel like you’re in your own world up there,” Chef de Cuisine Andrew Bachelier said. With all the different dining options, “you can come in each time and have a different experience,” he noted. Bachelier is part of the culinary team led by Executive Chef Joe Magnanelli, and together they created a menu that incorporates some staples from Cucina Enoteca in Irvine and sister Cucina Urbana locations, but also concocted items specific to the Del Mar site. Many of the ingredients used are from Borkum’s garden at her home in San Diego. Many guests start their meal with antipasti such as Burrata and Prosciutto “Caprese,” featuring creamy cheese and wedges of heirloom tomato accented with


wild arugula and Gaeta olives, drizzled with 18-year aged balsamic, all resting on razorthin slices of prosciutto. Other crowd-pleasing starters include the Panko-Crusted Rabbit Sausage with a celery confit, in which the prunes are cooked down in cognac; and the Grilled Octopus, surrounded by tiny pickled beech mushrooms and charred scallions, acqua pazza (crazy water) aioli, black garlic and coriander vinaigrette. For the main course, there are selections ranging from pizzas and pastas to salads and meat-based dishes. The favorite among the Cucina chefs is the Bucatini, a pile of thick noodles mixed with bits of house-cured guanciale (jowl of a pig), burnt cabbage leaf, tomato, chili and pecorino, topped with a hen egg to be broken and mixed into the noodles. Another desired dish is the Celery Root

Agnolotti with black trumpet mushrooms, Tahitian squash, slices of duck prosciutto and espresso sugo (rich Italian sauce). Among the desserts are Pear and Armagnac Tiramisu with vanilla bean mousse and bittersweet chocolate, and Zeppole (Italian-style doughnut holes) with spiced apple conserva and chili chocolate. Along with such temptations, diners may want to take advantage of the themed daily specials, offered from 3 to 6 p.m. There’s Meatball Monday, Take-Out Tuesday, Wild Wednesday (burger and Moretti beer); Thrifty Thursday (half-price pizza), Formaggi Friday, Social Saturday (when people are asked to find the weekly password on Twitter or Facebook) and Sinful Sunday (no corkage on all bottles from the wine shop over $20). Also, $1 from each purchase of a Cucina signature wine goes toward a different local charity each month.

Students at Pacific Ridge School learn how to live in a 21st century world through travel programs

By Kristina Houck Still in high school, Emily St. Marie has already completed her first internship and Tony Oliverio has already studied abroad. Both are students at Pacific Ridge School in Carlsbad, an independent college preparatory school that emphasizes global engagement, as well as academic excellence and ethical responsibility. “We live in a global community,” said Head of School Dr. Bob Ogle, who helped launch the middle and high school in 2007. “Anytime we connect our students with other communities outside our school, whether it’s across the street or across the globe, we are teaching them how to work with others and how to live in a 21st century world. There’s no way you can teach that just in books.” Along with most of the ninth grade class, Tony Oliverio traveled to China last spring in a school-designed program. During the nearly two-week-long trip students explored China’s capital, toured monumental sites, hiked the Great Wall, learned about the lives and work of farmers in rural China and volunteered in primary schools in small villages. Tony, who has studied Chinese for five years, said his favorite part of the trip was the home stay experience in Shanghai, where he stayed with a mother, child and two sets of grandparents. “It’s a diverse world with so many different cultures and people and outlooks,” said Tony, a 15-year-old sophomore. “Getting to experience that at such a young age and getting familiar with that, I think, will serve us well later on.” Like Tony Oliverio, Emily St. Marie participated in the China trip when she was in ninth grade. More recently, she and two other students spent their summer interning at a South Korean language school. As a freshman, Emily was one of several students who founded a service-learning group called Lingo Online. Working with the contacts of a former Pacific Ridge faculty member who now works in South Korea, the group offers free English lessons to non-native speakers via Skype. During the self-designed five-week internship with lan-

guage institution Paedea, Emily visited the land and people she had experienced only virtually. “I had a more hands-on approach,” said Emily, an 18-yearold senior. “Getting to see the classrooms and the material that’s actually used was really helpful in my exploration into teaching English.” Along with classmates Carter Triana and Anny Huang, Emily spent the first half of each day creating worksheets and developing grammar and vocabulary assessments. For the second half of each day, the students pursued independent projects. Emily worked on increasing the number of children’s audiobooks in Paedea’s library system. She selected books, designated timelines and sourced narrators, narrating a few of the books herself. “Going to these places where the living conditions are so different, even if it’s in a very advanced nation like South Korea where the conditions are very similar to ours, or going to a place in rural China where the conditions are so different, it’s great for kids to get this kind of perspective,” she said. “Most kids don’t get to experience anything outside of their bubble at home.”

(Left) Tony Oliverio with children from a rural village in China; (Above) Pacific Ridge School. Courtesy photos Pacific Ridge School offers a variety of travel programs for all students. Last year, more than 90 percent of the school’s students traveled at the end of the school year, while others chose to participate in local internships or other activities, Ogle said. Located at 6269 El Fuerte St. in Carlsbad, Pacific Ridge School opened in 2007 with 108 students. The school has since grown to 503 students and 95 faculty and staff. Global engagement is just one of the three pillars of the school’s mission statement. Pacific Ridge promotes academic excellence by offering seminar-style teaching, while an extensive service learning program built into the curriculum helps students learn ethical responsibility. “I think our school is a place where everyone wants to know about the world, wants to know more about different cultures,” Tony said. “I think that yearning to know more is something we can apply to academics, ethical responsibility, and obviously, global engagement.” For more information, call 760-448-9820 or visit Note: Business spotlights are developed through this newspaper’s advertising department in support of our advertisers.

SPOTLIGHT on LOCAL BUSINESS Wink Optometry & Eyewear in Del Mar offers a variety of services and products By Kristina Houck Many diseases such as diabetes, cancer and multiple sclerosis can go undetected, but early signs can be spotted in the eyes. Through her comprehensive eye examinations, board certified optometrist Dr. Puneh Baha has detected a variety of diseases and viruses in her patients during her 13 years of practice. “The eyes are kind of like the window to your soul,” said Baha, who can begin treatment or refer patients to their primary physicians for further evaluation, depending on the diagnosis. “We can pick up so many things in the eyes.” After a decade in optometry, Baha opened her own practice in Del Mar in February 2011. Located in the Albertsons supermarket shopping center on Via de la Valle, Wink Optometry & Eyewear offers diagnosis and management of ocular disease, treatment for eye infections, pediatric optometry, contact lens evaluation and fitting, evaluations for LASIK and cataract and glaucoma surgery, as well as routine vision checks. The 1,100-square-foot location also features designer-label frames such as Dior, Gucci and Fendi, and the very latest in fashion frames from designers such as Tom Ford. “I wanted this to be a service-oriented place where patients could understand how important their eyes are,” Baha said. “In general, people think their vision is only being able to see the 20/20 line, but it’s much more than that. I just want to make sure that people understand the importance of getting exams, so we try to educate as much as we can here.” Promoting prevention, Baha recommends annual eye exams. It’s also critical to examine children’s eyes from an early age, she said. Baha begins seeing children at age 2 because undetected problems could result in eyes that become lazy with ambly-

Dr. Puneh Baha. Courtesy photo opia, which she said can’t be corrected after the age of 7. A mother to 7-year-old twin boys and a 6-year-old daughter, Baha has checked her own children’s eyes since they were 6 months old. Baha’s first eye exam when she was 8 years old sparked her interest in optometry. “By that time, I was very nearsighted and my

parents didn’t really know,” she said. “I thought that the leaves on trees were just in my coloring books until they gave me glasses. “Kids are so important because it’s tough for them to know what clear looks like if they’ve never seen it.” A native Californian, Baha grew up in Agoura Hills. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biology at California State University, Northridge, where she researched retinoblastoma, a congenital cancer of the eye. In 2000, she earned her doctorate degree at the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, along with an additional bachelor’s degree in visual science. Baha began her career at LensCrafters in Escondido, and then worked at a few different private practices throughout the county. Nearly three years ago, Baha’s husband, a real estate broker, helped her find the location where she opened Wink Optometry & Eyewear. Baha launched her practice with no patients, and has now seen many patients for

about three years. Her stock of roughly 200 frames has grown to almost 700 frames. She also employs three opticians. “I love what I do,” said Baha, who has served as an examiner for the National Board of Examiners in Optometry and is currently a member of the San Diego Optometric Society. “I think that when a patient is sitting in my chair, they definitely feel that. “For myself, I would want to go to a doctor who loves what they do because I know that they’re going to take every bit of care to make sure that they not only look at my eyes, but look at me as a whole.” Wink Optometry & Eyewear is located at 2673 Via de la Valle, Suites E and F.

Komen Three-Day Walk kicks off in Del Mar Hundreds of people motivated to fight breast cancer participated in the annual Komen San Diego Three-Day Walk fundraiser recently. The trek covered a total of 60 miles and started at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Nov. 15. The event finished with a celebration Sunday afternoon, Nov. 17, at Petco Park. The SGK Breast Cancer Foundation selected En Fuego in the Del Mar Village as the “first official water donation & cheer station.” Walkers were required to raise at least $2,300 to participate. Organizers say the walkers usually raise an average of around $3,000. The walk is the second major event for Susan G. Komen for the Cure this month in San Diego. About 14,000 people took part in the 17th annual Race for the Cure 5K on Nov. 3. — City News Service and staff reports. Photos/Kristina Houck; For photos online, visit

Join the fun: Indoor paintball facility opens off Miramar Road

Driving long distances to play paintball is a thing of the past. A rained out paintball birthday party isn’t a worry anymore. Indoor paintball has come to San Diego in a central location off Miramar Road. San Diego Paintball Park (SDPP) opened its doors on Saturday, Nov. 16, with a Grand Opening Event in its 12,000-square-foot facility designed to provide hours of fun for all ages. According to SDPP operator and Carmel Valley resident Bryan Clark, “One of the unique things about our park is that we are open six days a week. That means we can accommodate after-school birthday parties, weekday corporate events, and after-work bachelor parties. You aren’t limited to hosting a paintball party on a weekend day.” Clark recommends requesting “Low Impact” paintball sessions for birthday parties and corporate events to reduce the impact to novice players on the field. Low impact (.50 caliber) paintballs produce 60-75 percent less impact than regular paintballs, but are just as accurate. SDPP offers regular paintball on Saturday and Sunday, and reball Tuesday through Friday. Hours are Tuesday-Thursday (4 p.m.-8 p.m.), Friday (noon-9 p.m.), Saturday-Sunday (8 San Diego Paintball Park a.m.-9 p.m.). owner Bryan Clark Online reservations ensure that you get the most out of your playing experience by limiting the number of players for each session. Bring your own “team” of 5-7 players or join in

The 12,000-square-foot San Diego Paintball Park is now open. a team put together with the help of the field referees. Referees will help match up teams with similar skill sets to increase your enjoyment. SDPP is a family-friendly facility with the goal of introducing more people to the awesome sport of paintball. SDPP also offers a high-quality rental equipment package, indoor staging area, professional turf, membership program, and a video game room. To reserve a party of 15 or more, call to set up your preferred date and time. San Diego Paintball Park is offering $5 off the cost of admission per person through the end of November (bring in coupon/ad from page 28 of this newspaper). San Diego Paintball Park is located off Miramar Road at 9570 Distribution Avenue, San Diego, CA. For more information, visit www. or call 858-461-8305.

One Night Only: Arcangelo Corelli music live at the Athenaeum Nov. 24 BY LONNIE BURSTEIN HEWITT On Nov. 24, a modernday violin virtuoso and her gifted keyboard accompanist will pay tribute to a legendary 18th century violinist/ composer with a special concert at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library in La Jolla. Victoria Martino and James Lent will mark the 300th anniversary of Arcangelo Corelli’s death with another of their musical marathons, featuring all 12 of Corelli’s sonatas for violin and organ continuo, performed on authentic Baroque violin and pipe organ. Arcangelo Corelli (16531713) was the most popular Italian composer of the Baroque era, a major influence on Vivaldi, Bach and Handel whose sonatas and concertos were famous throughout Europe. His skill as a composer was matched by his skill as a performer. He toured widely, establishing the violin as a solo instrument, and has been called the “World’s First Great Violinist.” Well-rewarded for his work in his lifetime, he is buried in the Pantheon at Rome. For the past seven years, Martino and Lent have been performing commemorative anniversary marathons of the complete violin works of some of their favorite composers, starting with Mozart in 2006 (26 sonatas in eight hours on his 250th birthday), and including Bach, Handel and Beethoven. Their Corelli concert will be only a quarter as long as their Mozart marathon, but it’s even more challenging. “The music is so demanding,” Martino said. “Corelli wrote these pieces for himself to perform, and included every technical trick in the book, most of which he invented. Preparing for the concert is like go-

Victoria Martino and James Lent, before their 2012 Beethoven Marathon at the Athenaeum. On Nov. 24, they will perform the complete sonatas of Arcangelo Corelli. PHOTO ©2012 by Lonnie Burstein Hewitt ing through an anthology of everything anyone could do on the violin in 1700.” Corelli, like other composers of his time, did not actually provide complete scores for his compositions. “Performers were expected to co-create the music, embellishing what was written down with their own ornamentation, like jazz musicians,” Martino said. “I have to train hard for the concert, to have the physical, intellectual and creative stamina to do it, first to learn all the pieces, and then to be in top form for over two hours. It’s pretty scary, and it’s a one-time only event.” Martino, who was raised in La Jolla, has had a long and varied career on three continents. She calls Lent, who has a Ph.D. in music performance from Yale, one of the most sought-after collaborative keyboardists in Southern California, and the two will be performing on authentic Baroque instruments. “This will be an amazing opportunity for audiences to hear Corelli’s works performed on an 18th century violin that has never been modified and an organ with all wooden pipes,” Martino said. “There’s no way to duplicate that special sound! What these instruments have is an incredible, embracing warmth, and in the Athenaeum’s intimate setting, the music will penetrate into your bones.” Martino has been “in training” for weeks, running the entire program every evening, in addition to her regular practicing. “One must be a gymnast, wizard, fire-eater, tightrope walker, poet and priest in order to perform this extraordinary music,” she said. “You’ll understand when you hear it!”

Accomplished hairstylist opens full-service salon Voilà Hair Atelier in Fairbanks Village Plaza By Diane Y. Welch Hairstylist Luis Angel has cultivated a unique approach to hair, make-up and beauty by training at the top stylist academy in England “Toni&Guy.” He now brings his signature skills to his own salon, Voilà Hair Atelier, which opened this fall at Fairbanks Village Plaza, in Building #1 - Suite 13. The full-service salon has a high-caliber team of hair and make-up stylists with a combined training background with Paul Mitchell, Vidal Sassoon, and Toni&Guy, said Angel. “We offer here facials, skin treatments, manicure and pedicure, and for hair, color treatments, precision cuts, styling, highlights and hair extensions.” Everything is custom-based for each client and wedding party services are also available. “We want our clients to relax while they are here,” said Angel. The music even hits the right note with the retro sounds of Frank Sinatra and soothing jazz or classical favorites being played. Interior decor – designed by Angel – echoes this relaxation with a palette of soft natural earth tones. “It’s in good taste creating an elegant and sophisticated vibe,” he said. For sale in the salon are high-end hair products: Oribe, Number Four and L’Oreal Professional are favored lines of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products available for purchase. There is also hand-crafted jewelry for sale. The salon location, in the heart of Fairbanks Ranch, is a far cry from Angel’s humble roots, having been born and raised in Havana, Cuba where his burning desire to style hair came at a young age. As a 14-year-old, Angel would follow his mother to the salon to see how the process was done. He determined then that this was his passion and future career path. Ten years later Angel moved to Europe to realize this dream. He trained with Toni&Guy in its salon in the heart of London city on Bond Street, learning the fine craft of precision cutting and color treatments. Angel relocated to San Diego in 2001 where he studied to get his U.S. license, further training with Vidal Sassoon in Santa Monica, and Martin Parsons of Los Angeles. He attended make-up artistry training classes at the Institute in Burbank, where he received his Make-Up Designory. Angel’s unique fusion of make-up skills paired with hair styling, brought him into the world of fashion where he worked at prestigious fashion events in Los Angeles and was featured in LA Fashion Week Magazine. This recognition gave him the confidence to take his skills to the next level. “My dream was always to open a salon and now I’ve done it,” said Angel, who added, “I’m glad it happened now

Author to speak at next free monthly lecture on mental health

On Dec. 5, the International Bipolar Foundation will hold its free mental health lecture series and book signing with author Karen Winters Schwartz. Schwartz is an active board member of NAMI Syracuse and has traveled throughout the country advocating for mental illness awareness. “Where Are the Cocoa Puffs?: A Family’s Journey Through Bipolar Disorder” is her debut novel which was released in September 2010. Her second novel: “Reis’s Pieces: Love, Loss, and Schizophrenia” was released in May 2012. Among her numerous family members who have dealt with some sort of neurobiological brain disorder are her two beautiful daughters, both of whom struggled greatly as adolescents, both of whom were labeled with an axis I diagnosis, one with bipolar, the other with schizophrenia. They are both now in recovery and doing wonderfully. Mental illness may begin with the individual, but it ultimately affects families and communities. These effects are partly due to stigma stemming from ignorance and fear. Schwartz will discuss the derailment of her own family by mental illness, and how her ignorance and the lack of support made the journey to recovery more difficult. She’ll share her thoughts on decreasing stigma, increasing education, and eliciting empathy—thus smoothing out the road to recovery. New location: Janssen R&D, LLC, 3210 Merryfield Row San Diego, CA 92121; Doors open at 5:45 p.m., Lecture begins promptly at 6 p.m. R.S.V.P Required; Event and parking are free. Visit

Don’t Just Wing It: Tips for a Fabulous Feast The Kitchen Shrink

By Catharine L. Kaufman This time of year, both seasoned cooks and neophytes, are cocooning themselves in their kitchens to prepare an impressive, bountiful (and hopefully healthy) Thanksgiving feast. It is also that time of year when assorted culinary crises abound, including everything from leaving the giblet bag in the cavity to undercooking a turkey to the point where a competent veterinarian could possibly revive it. Here is some solid gustatory advice to help you seamlessly navigate your way through turkey land. Gobble, gobble. Gender selection Do you want a girl or a boy bird? Tom is the boy, hen is the girl. Large, older males are tastier and tenderer than the young, wily boys, while old hens are tough birds. So it’s better to buy an old tom or a young, tender hen (no older than 15 months). If your druthers are breast meat, the young hen is for you, but if you prefer dark meat, then buy the old tom. Dressed to kill The big Thanksgiving dilemma is whether to stuff the bird or do the stovetop

method. For the nays, an unstuffed turkey will roast more uniformly and quickly, but if you stuff, it must be completely scooped out from the cavity within an hour after the turkey is removed from the oven, to prevent an environment rife for the formation of bacteria and food-borne illnesses. For a no-fuss stuffing technique simply pack the dressing in a cheesecloth bag and insert in the bird. This cavity protection not only prevents sticking to the insides, but makes for easy removal when the turkey’s done. Rack it up For easy cleanup, swap out the roasting rack for an edible makeshift one. Line your roasting pan with layers of carrots, celery and parsnips that will also infuse the bird with divine flavors, and create an aromatic blend of juices for gravy. Let’s talk turkey Fresh is always best, but if you go the other route, never put a frozen turkey in the oven unless you are cooking it for Christmas dinner. The best way to thaw the bird is in the refrigerator, breast side up in a shallow pan, in its original wrapper allowing 24 hours for every four pounds. Massage the skin with virgin olive oil and season with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Or do a dry rub instead of liquid brine by seasoning with 1/3 cup of kosher salt and an herb blend, and letting it marinate overnight for a tender, juicy bird. It’s about time While cooking times will vary depending on whether you purchased a fresh or frozen bird, generally for a frozen defrosted one,

Foolproof Zesty Cranberry Citrus Relish Ingredients 2 cups fresh cranberries, stems removed Zest from one orange or Meyer lemon Flesh from one orange, chopped 1/2 cup brown sugar (adjust to taste) 1 sweet apple, peeled, chopped 1/3 cup roasted pecans 1/3 cup dates (optional) Method: Place ingredients in a blender or food processor and coarsely chop. Refrigerate in an airtight container.

allow 20 minutes per pound, while a fresh 10 to 15 minutes per pound at a moderate 350 degree F oven. In addition, a stuffed turkey will need extra roasting time, around 25 to 30 minutes per pound. Tent the bird with aluminum foil or parchment paper to prevent overbrowning. Only open the oven about 30 to 45 minutes before ETA, and remove the foil or parchment paper to allow it to brown nicely. A meat thermometer is a great gadget to check for doneness. Stick the thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh without touching the bone. When the temperature reaches 180 degrees F, the bird is done. Also test the stuffing temperature, which must reach 165 degrees F for doneness. If you don’t have a thermometer, use the old school method of joint jiggling and juice testing. Pierce the thigh with a knife, and if the juices run clear, then it’s done. Also, the joints should wiggle freely. Let the turkey take a nap for 20 minutes after removing it from the oven so the juices settle in, for easier carving. I’ll drink to that With 15 minutes to go on the clock, brush the bird generously with white vermouth to give a golden glaze thanks to the sugars in this fortified wine.
