Summer Horse Camps Our camps provide a fun filled day from 9am - 1pm for ages 6-12. We focus on lots of riding time and hands on activities, along with horse oriented crafts and games. Children learn how to lead, groom and tack their own horses, with a strong emphasis on safety. We also include fun activities like painting and decorating our ponies, followed by giving them a bath, of course! Another favorite activity is a scavenger hunt around our lovely grounds where we observe all the fun things in nature. Finally, we finish on Friday with a parent demonstration, so we can show off some of our camper’s newly acquired skills. The week concludes with a pizza party for all.

Vol. 2, No. 8 TM

Publisher Derrick Breaux Creative Director Tyler McElhaney

The Big 4-0

F

Derrick Breaux Publisher

or as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to be older. When I was a child, I wanted to be a teenager. When I was a teenager, I wanted to be an adult. In college, I couldn’t wait to start my career. At nineteen, like most people, I just wanted to reach the legal drinking age. As each year passed, I felt like I was inching closer and closer to something – perhaps some type of goal or milestone? After all, these markers tend to be big deals in all of our lives. We often see them as the ‘end’ of distinct categories. The end of our teenage years... The end of high school... The end of college... The end of our twenties... I’ll take it even further. Have I simply been on course to reach middle age? Goodness, did I really just say that? After spending a few minutes on Google, I’ve concluded that most people classify middle age as 45 to 65 years of age. Apparently this is a relatively new frame of mind because until recently, it was generally thought that 40 to 60 years made up the bracket’s classification. I assume that it wouldn’t be difficult to figure out what age group initiated the sudden five year shift. Turning the big 4-0 was actually a pretty cool experience. My adorable wife worked hard to put together an incredible 40th birthday party. I was humbled by the whole experience – surrounded by dear friends, family members, acquaintances and colleagues spanning multiple decades of memories. The most common question that people have been asking me is how it felt turning 40. The honest truth is that it’s great. For the first time that I can remember, I feel like I am actually at the beginning of something. I’m motivated and inspired. I’m right where I want to be – at the exact age that I want to be at. Truth be told, throughout my thirties I often thought of reaching forty. I’m there and it’s going to be a fantastic decade! I’m no longer looking too far into the future. In fact, I’m doing just the opposite. Spending time with my family and enjoying watching my kids grow into their pre-teen years and young adulthood is an amazing thing. If only there was a way that I could convince them that there is no rush to get older and move into the next category of their lives – but that’s a topic for a different publisher’s note. Oh, and by the way, I subscribe to the new way of thinking – the one that says middle age is classified as 45 to 65 years old. A special thank you to Google for clarifying that and giving me a five year cushion. Regards, Derrick Breaux, Publisher

Never Surrender Retired Marine Sergeant Cogen Nelson Inspires Carlsbad to Take Charge of Its Fitness and Its Future

M

arine Sergeant Cogen Nelson has landed in Carlsbad following an eight year military career. He was deployed in 2006 and 2008, to Fallujah, Iraq and Hadijah, where he turned 21 in Iraq, spent Christmas overseas, and many a night away from his wife and child. Sergeant Nelson sustained a gunshot wound to his left arm during a firefight, and was later injured in the back of a vehicle when it struck an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). The aftermath of these events were not immediate, but eventually required him to spend a year with a Wounded Warrior Battalion, seeking treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), PostTraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and numerous other physical ailments. “Needless to say,” shared Sergeant Nelson, “my days were filled with dark rooms, medicine, [and] very little social interaction.” Sergeant Nelson was able to combat his struggles though, paving a road to recovery through fitness. He discovered CrossFit during a hospital stay in Bethesda, MD, where a gym offered a nearfree membership to train for the months during his rehabilitation. Although unable to do most of the movements, it was new and he liked it. After returning

by KELLEY GUSICH | photos by Soul of Photography

to his Wounded Warrior Battalion, a staff member had the squad of injured soldiers do a Workout of the Day (WOD). “I couldn’t move for days after,” explained Sergeant Nelson, “but I had a taste again for competition. Sitting around feeling sorry for yourself and focusing on ‘what’s wrong’ kept me chained up. CrossFit broke those chains and filled the void I had when I entered treatment.” He was so enthralled with it, in fact, that he sought Level 1 certification and now trains at his own gym, CrossFit San Elijo. Nowadays my motivation is passing along that inspiration.” The personal accomplishment Sergeant Nelson feels most proud of is his ability to go upside down in a workout, after years of headaches, depression and a “kitchen sink of medicine.” In regards to CrossFit, as a coach, “There is no prouder moment than witnessing when an athlete accomplishes the impossible. I’ve seen ladies tell themselves they are too old or overweight to do pullups, only to see them get their chins over the bar, all on their own.” Sarah Hosley, an athlete in the CFSE family, has a Groupon quote he especially cherishes, which includes these words of affirmation: “Not only have they given me back the physical gains I so badly wanted, they also brought me into this community that is there for you no matter what.” ¢

Name: SGT Cogen Nelson, USMC, Ret. Profession: Owner and trainer at CrossFit San Elijo (cogen@crossfitsanelijo.com). Served in the United States Marines as an Infantry Squad Leader with 3rd Battalion 3rd Marines, then with 4th Force Reconnaissance, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines, and finally as a Wounded Warrior Battalion where I was medically retired. Community: Carlsbad since 2012 Hobbies: CrossFit, college football, anything outdoors, coaching my 9-year-old in sports, and playing with my 1-year-old daughter Local Favorites: I love digging into a giant burger (or two) at Notorious Burgers; I frequent Bressi Ranch Trader Joe’s, Starbucks, and CFSE on a weekly basis.

or Tanner Kaiden, nothing beats being out on the baseball diamond pitching in an All-Star game. “I am most proud of the genuine San Diego Padres spring training team jersey that I was awarded when I was named MVP of the All-Star game I played in this past fall. Pitching in the All-Star game was so amazing and exciting,” revealed Tanner. To keep his pitching skills sharp when he’s not on the mound, Tanner practices his motion and form whenever possible, even while walking from room-to-room at home. While baseball is a big part of Tanner’s life, he has many other interests, including math, science and robotics. As a fourth grader at Mission Estancia Elementary School, Tanner feels very lucky to be in a school community that encourages learning and kindness. “Our teachers are awesome. They have encouraged and inspired me to be a good student with high grades and good behavior,” said Tanner. He also enjoys the activities held on campus, such as the joga-thon and talent show, both of which he participated in with enthusiasm. Tanner is also a member of the Mission Estancia robotics team under Coaches Vivian Lee and Curtis Walz. The team builds robots out of Legos and participates in tournaments at Legoland

He and his "Tech Wizards" teammates were fortunate enough to be mentored recently by the San Dieguito Academy robotics “I am most proud of the team. According to Tanner, learning genuine San Diego Padres from the high school students was a great and inspiring experience. spring training team And, the Tech Wizards won the 1st jersey I was awarded place Inspiration Award for Core when I was named MVP of Values in mid-February.

Rinse rice several times in cool water until water runs clear. Place rinsed rice in a bowl with 3 cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt, and set aside. Allow rice to sit in salt water for at least 30 minutes. Take raisins and place in a small bowl with 1 cup of lukewarm water. This will allow the raisins to reconstitute. Set the bowl aside. Rinse lentils in cold water and place in small pot. To the washed lentils add 1 ½ cups water and 1 teaspoon of salt and place on the stove at medium high heat. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and bring to a simmer. Stir lentils occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Once tender, strain water and set lentils aside. In a separate (larger) pot bring 6 cups of water and 1 1/2 tablespoons of salt to a boil. Once water is boiling, strain the previously set aside rice from water and place in boiling, salted water. Note: It’s important not to leave the pot of rice alone here! Once all the rice begins to expand and float to the surface, it is ready to be removed from the heat. Test if it’s ready by taking one grain of rice out and smooshing it between your fingers. If it breaks into 2 to 3 pieces, it’s ready. If not, watch it closely and try again in another 30 seconds. When the rice reaches the desired cooking level, strain the water and set the rice aside. Taking the same empty pot you just cooked the rice in, return the pot to medium heat until any remaining water evaporates. Once water has evaporated, add ¼ cup oil to the pot. Allow oil to become hot (you’ll see ripples), remove pot from heat. Immediately, add half of the rice to bottom of pot of the pot, then half of the lentils, the rest of the rice and then the rest of the lentils. Mix gently. Using a spatula, push the rice/lentil mixture up and away from the sides of the pot (making something resembling a mountain in the pot). Sprinkle the cinnamon on the top of the rice-mountain. Take a dishtowel and cover the lid of the pot (with the 4 corners of the dish towel meeting at the handle of the lid) and place the lid securely on the top of the pot. Cook rice on medium high heat for 5 minutes, and then reduce the heat to medium-low and allow rice to cook for approximately 45 minutes or until rice is fluffy and tender. Take the bowl of raisins, drain the water, and pat raisins with a paper towel to remove any residual water. In a small sauté pan, heat 3 tablespoons of oil. Once oil is hot, add raisons carefully. Saute raisins until you see them all plump up – approximately 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Once rice mixture is done, stir gently, dispersing the cinnamon and lentils throughout. Spoon the rice onto a platter adding the raisins on top. The bottom layer of rice in the pot should have become crispy, (this is called “tah-deeg”, or literally, “bottom of the pot”). Gently remove the tah-deeg and place to the side of the platter. Enjoy your lentil rice with chicken and/or plain yoghurt for a truly authentic Persian meal!

T

hey researched where the marine layer hovers. The Davises wanted sunshine. And, they prefer to be in the nucleus of North County’s running and cycling communities. La Costa has been home for fifteen years. Susanne and Scott Davis, and their children Matthew and Brooke, are an active family.

22 • 92009Magazine.com • April | May 2014

Scott and Susanne Davis Matthew (10) 4th grade and Brooke (5) Kindergarten – both at La Costa Heights Copperwood at La Costa Oaks Scott – Glen Ellyn, IL; Susanne – Plover, WI Scott – VP/Senior Consultant for Calamos, a Chicago investment firm Susanne – Owner Best Foot Fitness and a personal coach/trainer

“We sometimes think we have more bikes than shoes,” said Susanne. Together, they enjoy swimming, biking, running and triathlons. They also love the beach and bonfires – family adventures that unplug them from cell phones and computers. Last April, Scott survived a heart attack at the age of 49 in a friend’s garage

just before heading out on a bike ride. His healing from heart surgery, and the deaths of two cyclists in their community last year, were extremely challenging to the Davises. “You can’t imagine the hundreds of people that come out to give you meals, take your kids for the day... and the list goes on,” said Susanne.


Scott and Susanne met when he came home and found her in his Carlsbad house. Literally. At the time, Scott offered to homestay two traveling athletes, one of them Susanne. Three months later they reconnected. Scott has been with his Chicago investment firm for more than twenty-five years. Susanne is a decorated athlete and personal coach. Last year, she entered eight races and won them all. She is currently the number one ranked triathlete over 40 years of age. She enjoys watching her clients achieve their winning dreams. Matthew, age 10, is in fourth grade at La Costa Heights Elementary. He’s involved in baseball, Pop Warner football and basketball. Back in class, he’s a super speller and received 100% on spelling tests last year. Brooke, age 5, is in kindergarten also at La Costa Heights. She is expressive and sings with her friends (who then vote for who’s going to Hollywood). She is also involved in cheerleading and gymnastics. “We always sit down and eat together regardless of sports or work activities,” mentioned Susanne. They also stay connected through “twenty-minute time”: the parents, uninterrupted, can relax and discuss the day. They regularly attend church and enjoy listening to the heartfelt prayers of their children at the table. The Davises are also involved with Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA, especially its annual charity event that raises funds for underprivileged kids to attend a weeklong camp. Scott coaches Matthew’s Friday Night Lights Football Team. “Every week we ride the coast and say 'Hey, guess what? We live here!'” said Susanne. The Davises don’t take this for granted, or the beauty of its people, which to them is the best part about Carlsbad. ¢

Rockin’ Out

TEEN BANDS GATHER FOR A NIGHT OF MUSIC, DANCING AND VIDEO GAMES photo provided by the City of Carlsbad

P

unk, indie and rock music hit each other head on in the recent 11th Annual Teen Scene at the Calavera Hills Community Center. The main event, Battle of the Bands, gathered quite a crowd as ten bands took center stage to battle for the title of champion. Bands were judged by music industry professionals in five categories: on-stage presence, vocal ability, instrumental talents, originality and crowd response. The victors, Occupancy 64, now Misinterpretations, a pop punk band with members from Carlsbad and Encinitas, won a one-day recording session in Hurley’s professional recording studio, along with Big Bear ski lift tickets and paid gigs with the Rock the Library concert series. Occupancy 64 was started in early 2012 by childhood friends Jack Lambert (guitar/vocals) and Rylan Lacey (bass). Through member changes early on, Tommy English joined on drums, but later switched to guitar when AJ Tartol took over. You can find the band’s music online at www.occupancy64.bandcamp.com or www.facebook.com/occupancy64. Step Forward Lads, a North County indie/rock band who has hit the stage with bands like The Black Keys, Modest Mouse and Jimmy Eat World took second place. Third place went to Consensus, a Mission Viejo bred band with a taste for music of all kinds. Other highlights of the events included an art café, a neon dance room, and a GameTruck which held four game units for gamers to choose from and play.

Rachael Shay, the special events supervisor for the City of Carlsbad said, “The caliber of talent that Teen Scene attracts as well as its highquality production, professional judges, and prizes have made it one of the largest teen events in North County. The City of Carlsbad is proud to offer this venue for creative expression to its young residents.” For more information on the Teen Scene or other upcoming events visit www.carlsbadca.gov/parksandrec or call the special events hotline at 760-434-2843. ¢

A Wish Come True

In his battle against hereditary progressive muscular dystrophy, Aidden has found help in the form, of a superhero that is. Aidden was recently granted his lifelong wish, to swim with dolphins in the Bahamas, through Make-A-Wish San Diego at Spinal Elements in Carlsbad. His wish granting ceremony was anything but ordinary as it was unveiled superhero-style. To recieve his wish he had to race through a Gotham City-like course in his mini-Batmobile, taking directions from Batman and Batgirl to reach the finish line. Spinal Elements donated over $50,000 to the San Diego Make-AWish Chapter in 2013 and estimates it will double that amount in 2014. For more information visit www.sandiego.wish.org.

Supervisors Support “Think Local First”

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution to encourage local spending, as part of the Think Local First campaign by the San Diego North Chamber of Commerce. “Buying locally instead of buying out of town – when the price for the product is the same – will positively impact local business,” Supervisor Dave Roberts said. “This program is designed to grow jobs, strengthen our tax base, and champion commerce in our county.”

or the past thirty years the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce has put on an event that has come to be a staple of the city, community and enthusiasts alike. The Carlsbad Village Faire can now claim the title of the largest single-day street fair in the nation, and with the wide variety of shopping and activities, there’s plenty of reasons why. Drawing as many

as 100,000 attendees to over 900 booths, the faire is an event that lives up to its title. Whether you attend every single year, or haven’t been recently, one thing is certain: Sunday, May 4 will be a day that all Carlsbad residents will be proud of. Ted Owen, President and CEO of the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce, shares some of the history of the event and what attendees can expect this year.

Q&A

with Ted

Owen

President & CEO of the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce For the benefit of those who may have never attended, can you describe the bi-annual Carlsbad Village Faire? With more than 900 vendors, the Carlsbad Vilage Faire is the largest one-day street fair of its kind in the United States. Held the first Sundays of May and November each year, this is the forty-first year of the tradition that draws more than 100,000 people. The fair has grown to be so popular, that it not only continually attracts people from all over Southern California, but also from other states. Some visitors even plan their vacations around the bi-annual event. The reason so many people return to the fair every year is that they can count on finding quality items to purchase because of the wide variety of vendors. You name it and it’s for sale at the fair.

When and how did the bi-annual event begin? The reason that the Carlsbad Village Faire was created was to bring attention to downtown Carlsbad. Back in 1984, the Chamber organized the Carlsbad Village Faire to showcase the Village of Carlsbad and all of the businesses that call it home. The plan worked beyond the Chamber’s expectations, and it has grown into

Hobbies and Interests: Owen, a twenty-two-year combat veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, joined the Chamber as president and CEO in 2004. Before taking the helm of the chamber, Owen twice served as the president and publisher of the San Diego Business Journal. Favorite Activity at the Carlsbad Village Faire: I like to walk the aisles and see what all the vendors are offering. I’m always amazed by what I find.


How is the faire planned and managed each year? Kennedy & Associates operates the Carlsbad Village Faire for the Chamber. The effort is headed by Brian Roth, who is continuing a tradition that started with his father-in-law, Keith Kennedy, who, along with the late Buddy Storm, promoted the fair and grew it into the best street fair in the country.

How large is the event in terms of attendance, activities, booths, and revenue? We have more than 900 vendor booths at the event, which makes it the largest one-day street fair in the country. Our figures suggest that in good years, more than 100,000 people visit the fair during the day.

What are some of the most popular activities/vendors each year? It all depends on what people are looking for. That’s the beauty of the Carlsbad Village Faire. If it’s legal and if it’s made, you can almost always find what you’re looking for.

What is new this year at the faire? Some of the new products that vendors are offering at the Carlsbad Village Faire this year include wagons for children with custom suspensions and accessories, carved soap flowers, patio swings, personalized stainless steel rings and wooden neck ties, bowties and bolo ties.

Where and when is this event held? The Carlsbad Village Faire is held the first Sundays of May and November every year. The next event takes place in the Village of Carlsbad on Grand Ave. from Carlsbad Blvd. to Jefferson St. on May 4 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

What can attendees expect in terms of entertainment at this year’s event? The Rotary Club of Carlsbad’s beer and wine garden will entertain fairgoers with a large screen TV and live bands. The Kiwanis Club of Carlsbad will continue its more than twenty-five-year tradition of hosting a pancake breakfast at the Carlsbad railroad depot. The meal, which includes pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice, will be served between 7 a.m. and noon.

What can attendees expect in terms of food and refreshments at this year’s event? The international food court will once again feature more than fifty booths serving everything from Thai to Hawaiian cuisine. There is also a beer garden and many booths with delicious snacks scattered throughout the fair, so bring your appetite.

What types of activities are planned for children this year? The children’s area will entertain youngsters with games, a super slide, a bounce house, a rock climbing wall, face painting, and arts and crafts.

Where should attendees plan to park for the faire? Due to limited parking and street closures (Grand Ave. from Carlsbad Blvd. to Jefferson St. and all of the cross streets in between will be closed for the event) we recommend that people use public transportation. The Sprinter can drop you off right at the heart of the fair. We also have complimentary shuttles that will run to and from the fair. Shuttles will pick up and drop off passengers at the Poinsettia Coaster Station and the northwest corner of Sears at Westfield Plaza Camino Real.

Why should local residents attend and support the event this year? Despite its size, the Carlsbad Village Faire is still a local event. Many local businesses take part in it, so you can shop and feel rest assured that your dollars stay and are invested locally. In addition, the Carlsbad Village Faire is a great way to get to know the businesses that are located in Carlsbad Village. Many have booths in front of their stores. The great thing about them is that they’ll always be there after the fair is over. ¢

Please Call Our Office For A Complimentary Consultation

Why Would a 7 Year Old Need Orthodontics? Typically, Early Treatment involves obtaining necessary diagnostic records such as models of teeth, photographs and growth analysis. Predictions can be made regarding nose, upper and lower jaws and chin. The analysis tells us what will happen to the face - both with and without treatment. I am very interested in smile analysis. We study: • The shape and color of the teeth • How much gum tissue is shown • The smile line (it is possible to have straight • The width of the jaws • The length of the upper lip teeth without having a good smile)

Also, great emphasis is placed on the airway. The way a child breathes can definitely affect the development of the jaws. Normal breathing occurs with the lips together and inhaling through the nose. Narrow nasal openings are a sign that breathing is occurring mainly through the mouth. Another sign of mouth breathing is red, swollen gums. There are several causes of mouth breathing: • Enlarged adenoids • Allergies which can cause nasal blockages • Underdeveloped nasal passages

• Malocclusions (bad bites) which are characterized by the upper teeth and jaws being so far forward that the lips cannot easily close • Deviated nasal septums • Enlarged nasal turbinates

These conditions cause the lower jaw to grow downward which then causes an "open bite." This condition is exhibited when the front teeth do not meet. How can you tell when there is an airway problem? Below is a list of symptoms and signs: 1. Chronic open mouth position 2. Gummy smile 3. Swollen gums 4. Chronic dark circles under the eyes 5. A crease on the nose (about 1/3 of the way up from the tip) 6. Pouting" lower lip 7. Short upper lip 8. Narrow "V" shaped under jaw 9. Upper teeth in "bucked" position 10. Chronic chapped or cracked lips 11. Excessive snoring

Since the Vast Majority of Growth (90%) is Accomplished by Age 12, It is Important to Begin Treatment Very Early.

Typical treatment in our office includes a combination of expanders and braces. Phase I usually lasts for 12 months. There is then a resting phase (6 months to 2 years) followed by Phase II which may last from 10 to 13 months. Each of my staff members and I want to provide the same exquisite results for your child. We hope you feel the same.

Before Treatment: Irregular teeth, lack of space

Final Result: Exquisite, wide, and natural smile with perfect occlusion (bite)

Conserve, Conserve, Conserve! By SUPERVISOR DAVE ROBERTS

The

vote by the San Diego County Water Authority’s Board of Directors in February was unanimous and the message was clear: conserve, conserve, conserve. Drought conditions in parts of California are as bad as they have been in a century. As the county’s representative to the Water Authority, I joined my colleagues from twenty-four member agencies in support of furthering conservation. The directors’ vote initiated the agency’s Water Shortage and Drought Response Plan to conserve as much stored water as possible so it can be made available where it is needed most. Last activated in 2007, the plan is designed to preserve the water held in storage and to minimize the impacts of supply challenges. The board also approved alerting all of its member agencies that the region is at Level 1 Drought Watch. That means that water district officials must identify specific actions necessary for their communities, such as repairing leaks quickly, limiting irrigation to the evening and early-morning hours and expanding use of recycled and non-potable water. As we lay plans to conserve, we can feel good about our track

42 • 92009Magazine.com • April | May 2014

record. San Diego County has reduced its water consumption by 27% since 2007, even though our population has increased. The Water Authority, to its credit, has greatly expanded the county’s storage capacity and has made capital investments and negotiated agreements to diversify the sources of our water portfolio. Since January, when I took over as the county’s water board representative, I have toured the Colorado River Aqueduct and the Sacramento/San Joaquin Bay Delta. Those trips drove home an important point: that most of the water we consume travels great distances, and at great cost, to reach us. And when water flows from our faucets, it’s no accident. To maintain our quality of life for our homes, businesses and farms, we must continue to diversify our supplies and to expand water recycling and reuse. And of course, conservation is key. To learn more about how to conserve water visit the Water Authority’s website at www.sdcwa.org. ¢ Dave Roberts represents the Third District on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

High Carlsbad’s Successful Horse-Riding School by MICHELLE TREMBLAY | photos by Tyler McElhaney

T

o say that Graeme Dixon knows a thing or two about horses is an understatement. While growing up in the United Kingdom he learned to properly ride and thoroughly care for horses as an active member of The Pony Club. When he later moved to the states Dixon became a regular competitor in horse riding, competing on the San Diego “hunter/jumper” circuit for over twenty years. Today, Dixon acts as owner and head trainer for UK Equestrian LLC, a riding school and training facility located in Carlsbad; and although Dixon still competes, though not as often, he takes much joy in seeing his riders succeed, supporting them every step of the way. According to Dixon, the overall mission of UK Equestrian LLC is to “create an environment that allows us to reach our goals and celebrate our successes as part of our UKE family.” With this mantra in mind, Dixon

He is now offering a horse-lease program while currently looking into a consignment program that matches horses with riders who are looking to be a horse owner. Trail rides will also be available March 1 “for those more interested in escaping the worries of the world for an hour or two in the beautiful surroundings,” explained Dixon. When asked about specific successes of his Whether it’s team, Dixon replied: “Whether it’s learning to trot, learning to trot, canter or jump for the first time, or whether you’re canter or jump for competing as part of the equestrian show team at the first time, or UKE, success is different for everyone.

DEVELOPING FUTURE LEADERS Former Fire Chief Crawford Serves His Community from Various Leadership Positions by AMY LEHRER | photos by Soul of Photography

F

ormer fire chief for the Carlsbad Fire Department and philanthropist, Kevin Crawford recently became the president and CEO of the United Way of San Diego (UWSD). He looks forward to expanding UWSD’s new business model and plans to focus on early grade education, financial stability, community health and homelessness. Via a unanimous vote, Crawford briefly served as the interim city manager. As Carlsbad’s chief executive officer, he managed a workforce committed to serving its community. Two of his projects included creating a childhood literacy initiative and expanding the Scripps Encinitas Hospital. While serving as fire chief, Crawford ensured the Carlsbad Fire Department safeguarded lives, property and the environment. This all-risk fire department prevents, prepares for, responds to and helps Carlsbad citizens recover from emergencies. The mission of the Carlsbad Fire Department is to enhance Carlsbad community life, and if the community felt safe and had confidence in its fire department, Crawford felt that mission had been accomplished. He enjoyed witnessing people’s lives improve physically and emotionally. He revealed, “It motivates me to see people reach heights they didn’t know were possible.”

Additionally, to raise the next generation of leaders for San Diego, Crawford taught charactercentered leadership strategy seminars. He created his book, A Chief Reflects on Leadership: Thoughts to Awaken the Mind of a Leader, as a means to express his vision. Crawford earned his ALA degree from Santa Ana College, completed the fire protection administration program with honors from San Diego State University (SDSU) and earned his JD from Western Sierra Law School. He became a firefighter/ paramedic for the City of Poway in 1984 and transferred to the Carlsbad Fire Department in 1986. Crawford fulfills his personal mantra – live in the moment – by spending time with his family. Crawford explained, “Spending time together as a family is the highlight of our personal lives.” His wife, Jolane, is the most compassionate, beautiful and sweet person he knows. They have two sons, two daughters and three grandchildren. Jolane and Kevin Crawford participate in philanthropic activities. Crawford helped create the paramedic program at Palomar College and served on the Education Vision Council for United Way as chair. Crawford advised, “Those of us who can need to help those who can’t.” In the future Crawford looks forward to reading on the beach bluffs and traveling. He’s visited Russia four times, and he and his wife envision more adventures. ¢

by TORI MORRISON | Photos by Spark Photography and Project Wildlife Care Center Staff

P

roject Wildlife, a nonprofit organization, serves as the primary resource for animal rehabilitation and conservation education in San Diego County. The organization cares for sick, injured, and abandoned wildlife throughout the County and then ensures that healthy animals are released back to the wild. Educating the public about wildlife interactions is another part of their mission, as they can have a major positive impact on the lives of wild animals.

Sick, Injured or Orphaned The first thing to remember is that wildlife generally view humans as a threat. So even if you are trying to help, too much handling or commotion can lead to undue stress on an animal. Watch to be sure the animal really is sick, injured, or orphaned and then act. When assisting the animal, stay calm. Bring the animal to a licensed rehabilitation center. If you are handling the animal yourself, wear gloves or use a towel and place the animal in a container with air holes.

frequented by coyotes. Also, ensuring trash can lids are tight, not leaving pet food outside and sealing access to garages or crawl spaces will help avoid unwanted wild animal visitors. If these efforts fail to keep wildlife out of your home or backyard, there are also some simple and safe deterrents you can try. These include using chili powder on plants, and installing motion-sensitive lights. Humane wildlife extraction is also an option. Humane exclusion encourages wild animals to leave and not to return without the use of pesticides.

Feeding Animals Avoid feeding wild animals as that teaches them to associate humans with a food source. This act causes wildlife to become too tame and lose their self-protecting fear of people.

Resident Wildlife

If you find an injured or abandoned animal, do not attempt to keep the animal yourself. Its best chance for survival is to get it to a licensed rehab facility like Project Wildlife as soon as possible.

Some wild animals live close to residential areas and may enter yards in search of food or water. Pets should never be left in unattended areas

aplastic anemia, a rare disease in which bone marrow, and the blood stem cells that reside there, are damaged. As a result, Mason does not have an immune system and is not able to go out in public in order to protect him from disease. Mason’s best bet for treatment is a bone marrow transplant. His best match would have been his younger brother, Ethan. Ethan, however, was not found to be a match. The Morash family has now begun to search for an unrelated donor through the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Mason’s only hope is to find a match through Be The Match, a global leader in bone marrow transplantation. The more people that register as donors, the more likely it is that he will find a match. Then he can go back to being an active and healthy 7-year-old kid again, with the ability to go to school, participate in sporting events, and scrape a knee or two every once in awhile.

:::: IN OUR OWN BACKYARD

CAMPING MADE EASY

T

here’s nothing like the great outdoors and camping is one way to take it all in. Camping brings a change of pace, fresh air, and the chance to wake up to a chorus of birdsong to name a few things. It’s the perfect remedy for the busy day-to-day work schedule, and the adventure element allows for families to spend time together. Trying it close to home, in your own backyard, is a good way to start.

Make it a True Getaway Keep it Simple • Keep an eye on the weather. A soggy tent and muddy ground will probably have you running inside the house. • Pick a date when you or the kids don’t have school or events the next day. • Don’t purchase too large a tent. A small one will be much quicker and easier to put up. Better yet, if it’s a clear night, skip the tent altogether and sleep out under the stars. • Go off the radar. Tuck your cell phone and tablet away for the day for an instant stress reliever. • Don’t forget the bug spray. Camping is fun, bug bites aren’t.

• As much as possible, pretend the house is not there. Don’t use electricity. • Play some games. A scavenger hunt, board games, playing cards, trivia, or croquet are all great activities. • Use charcoal or colored pencils to take nature rubbings in your yard or press flowers and leaves into a scrapbook. • Explore your neighborhood. Set out with a compass or map to trek local trails. • Plan a sensational dinner that can be cooked entirely on the barbecue. • Do some bird watching, sing campfire songs and swap ghost stories. Bring a tape recorder so you can record the best songs and the scariest ghost stories for posterity. • Make a campfire. Have kids collect wood and teach them how to light and manage a fire safely. • Do some stargazing and pay no heed to a bedtime; everyone will eventually fall asleep to the sounds of nature. • Light the barbecue again after it gets dark and enjoy a late night marshmallow roast.

Now go outside and set up camp . . . no travel required! ¢

Preserving Our Trails

THE LAKE CALAVERA BOARDWALK TRAILS AND WETLAND RESORATION PROJECT photos provided by Steve Jantz

T

here’s exciting news for the hikers, cyclists, trail enthusiasts and naturalists in Carlsbad as the Lake Calavera Boardwalk Trails and Wetland

Restoration Project constructions are finished. Construction to the boardwalk trails began in December 2013 and was completed this spring. The Project’s goal was to create new boardwalks to improve access to and from the existing trail system in the Lake Calavera Preserve. It is part of a trail improvement plan to improve the quality of the trails, the environmental impact people have on the preserve, and the safety of the boardwalks. Before the project began pedestrians relied on makeshift, constructed crossings made out of debris and salvaged construction materials. The new boardwalks are constructed from solid wood and pose less of a risk with elevated edgings for additional safety. Both pedestrians and cyclists are able to access and use the new paths. The construction was made to two areas of the preserve. One boardwalk crosses the Calaveras Creek in the middle of the preserve and is approximately 150 feet long, and the other is located on the east side adjacent to the creek and is approximately 760 feet long. “The new boardwalk trail is a great enhancement for Lake Calavera, because it both improves the preserve’s aesthetics and protects the habitat with a single project,” said Steve Jantz, an associate engineer with the City of Carlsbad Parks and Recreation Department. “This is a win for the preserve’s users, and a win for the environment,” he noted. ¢

:::: REAL ESTATE WATCH

What to Expect in 2014? Ask Us! Ranked in the Top 20 for 2013 by GLENN HOLTZ & TANYA GABRIELLA

W

hat is going to happen in 2014? The only way to really know is to review the past trends. In previous years, investor sales were very high due to the excess of distressed properties up until 2013. With these “bargin properties” continuing to decrease, the investor sales also declined which made 2013 the year of “primary home sales.” Investors are now taking a step back as the discounted properties’ values are appreciating, their profits are becoming less and less, which will allow the traditional and first time home buyers to get a chance to become homeowners. Inventory levels will likely improve in 2014 making the market a more “normal” year. Sellers have also become very optimistic about 2014. According to CAR Seller Survey, “In 2012, the majority of sellers sold primarily because of financial difficulties, but as home prices surged, a desire to trade up became the top reason for selling in 2013.” By July 2013, 95% of the sales in San Diego County were equity sales, 2.7% were short sales, and 2.3% were REOs. We expect that these numbers will stay the same if not get slightly better in 2014.

Now that you have all this information, you need the right realtors to help you. Ranking in the Top 20 for Transaction in 2013 in both San Diego County and all of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, we are your best choice! ¢
