Publisher Derrick Breaux

What is the Special Ingredient?

W

atching each issue of this magazine come together is a very exciting thing for me. Regardless of the number of editorial meetings that we have, it is always fun to see the completed design in print. We feature local students, families, volunteers, businesses and other stories as they relate to our immediate community. We often talk about how there’s a little something for everyone inside of these pages – whether you are 4 years old or 104 years old. Many people often ask me about our community and what makes it a special place. It’s easy to run down the typical list – beautiful homes, high-ranking schools, nice people, close proximity to a lot of things, etc. We talk about these things all of the time. In fact, many of us moved to our community specifically for these things. But there’s something more. There seems to be a special ingredient that can be found in our great communities. I believe that special ingredient is volunteerism. I recently had a conversation with a friend discussing how volunteers have such a positive impact on our local town. In fact, he took it one step further and stated that our community is as nice as it is specifically because of the contribution and donation of time of local volunteers. The more I thought about it, the more I had to agree. There’s something special that happens when people donate their precious time Derrick Breaux for the greater good of the community. Volunteering comes in many Publisher forms. Some people are capable of donating great amounts of time and energy. Others have a more limited ability to donate time. The important ingredient is that contributions are in fact made – big or small. Regardless of the amount of individual time that a person can gift to the community, it’s hard to deny the huge difference that it makes. Whether you are running one of the communities’ nonprofit organizations, volunteering at local events, or simply picking up the occasional piece of litter left behind on the sidewalk, our communities are definitely better places because of the people that do it. Regards, Derrick Breaux, Publisher

Sing Me A Tune

A Musical Love for 92024

K

erry Witkin has been a resident of 92024 since 1978. He and his wife, Robin, have raised their three children here. In fact, he loves Encinitas so much that he wrote a song about it! He drew inspiration from the beaches, the sunsets, arts community, history, popular restaurants and festival flair to create a song written by an Encinitan for visitors to Encinitas. His favorite place to visit? “Walks along the beach starting at Moonlight Beach and heading north, and the Meditation Gardens,” said Kerry. His song-writing and love of Encinitas has led him down the musical path. He has another song ready for release called “Bottom of the Cage”, and is working with another community to create a special song just for them, much like he did with the Encinitas Song. He is also working with a local business to create a song and video for marketing. Kerry is still quite busy, despite all the projects. He is a part of the Encinitas Rotary, serves on the board of directors of the Coastal Community Foundation and on the board of the San Dieguito Heritage Museum. ¢

n a beautiful November day, the Encinitas Fall Festival was in full swing. With over 450 booths to visit, plus dozens of retailers and performances, it was a great day for holiday shopping and entertainment. North County Health Services held a Fall Festival Kids Zone in The Lumberyard for the first time, where children of all ages could enjoy a wide range of interactive booths and activities, including a giant slide and a skate park. Thanks to Hill’s Ideal Balance, canine companions could take a break from the bustling festival at the dog park, also in The Lumberyard, with plenty of turf and an agility course provided by Zoom Room. The Lumberyard Courtyard Stage featured many unique performances, from The Bayou Brothers and Dance Connection, to Kehulili O Kailani and Zumba Dance demonstrations. ¢

“Share The Road” at YMCA Bike-A-Thon

O

n Feb. 8, hundreds of community members dedicated to healthy living and giving back, will participate in the Magdalena Ecke Family YMCA’s Annual Bike-A-Thon event. Ringing in its twelfth year of raising funds for the YMCA, this year’s event will focus on the important message of “Share the Road”. From 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., over forty teams of people will ride on a studio cycling bike for hour increments of the eight-hour event. Each rider will fundraise for the YMCA’s outreach efforts leading up to the event, and all participants at the event will receive giveaways, prizes, the opportunity to bid on popular auction packages, walk through the Health and Safety Fair, eat tasty donations from local eateries, and cheer on their favorite team to spinning victory. Each team will strive to raise $1,000 to provide a YMCA experience to all community members regardless of economic standing, age, race, religion or background. In addition to supporting YMCA outreach, the participants will also engage in the “Share the Road” theme. Co-chair of the BikeA-Thon Volunteer Committee, Barbara Larson said, “Road riding is so popular in this community and many of us have been very closely affected by an increase in tragic accidents. It feels right to band together around this and educate our community on driving

and riding safely.” Co-Chair, Kate Joiner, added, “This is about community and supporting each other, on and off the road.” Last year, the 11th Annual Bike-A-Thon raised over $50,000 in 2013. The committee hopes to break through last year’s total and invites all community members to come check it out, put a team together, donate to the auction or get involved.

SURF, SUN & FUN Kalina Quinn is Off to Surf and Off to College by ANGIE GALLO | photos by Soul of Photography

A

s Kalina Quinn continues her senior year at the Grauer School in Encinitas, there is no question in regards to her abilities to be a top academic achiever. In 2013, Kalina received the Outstanding Academic Achievement Award in science, history, U.S. world history and English as well as Outstanding Student in high school English and Gold Presidential awards. Beyond the awards and the academic accomplishments Kalina is a true California girl who puts her books down and hits the surf. Kalina said, “I live in Encinitas. I love it here because it’s so relaxed. We have gorgeous beaches and everyone is so incredibly friendly. The weather is always so beautiful and I can do my homework outside!”

With her love of 92024 beaches, it’s no wonder she joined the expeditionary program at her school where twice a year the program travels locally or internationally with her peers. This year Kalina visited Bahia de Los Angeles, Mexico. According to Kalina, it was the best week of her life. “I had the opportunity to swim with whale sharks, eat fresh fish, sleep outside, and snorkel in the clearest, most beautiful water I’ve ever seen.” What she realized on her trip was how the experience has shown her how to keep a balance between academics and gaining life experience. Kalina received the Commended National Merit Scholar Honor Award and is a member of the National Honors Society. Not only is this star student dedicated to her academics, “I had the opportunity but also to her family life. When asked what inspires her, Kalina said, “My to swim with whale brother Colin. He is such a positive, sharks, eat fresh fish, happy person that I can’t help but feel sleep outside, and good about myself when I am around snorkel in the clearest, him. I love spending time with him and most beautiful water he keeps me grounded. I don’t know I’ve ever seen” what I’m going to do without him next year when I go off to college!” Recently Kalina took her love for the ocean a step further and obtained an internship at the Salk Institute. With an obvious talent to be a go-getter, she continues finding fun ways to enjoy school throughout the year. As senior class president, she is enjoying planning Grad Night and can’t wait to start putting together graduation for the Class of 2014. Kalina Quinn is a girl on the move. She surfs, loves her family, and has big college plans on the horizon. She's truly a girl who is livin’ the dream. ¢

Giving Pets a Second Chance

L

ast Chance At Life Rescue (LCAL) is an animal rescue and adoption program based in Oceanside, specializing in canine and bird adoptions. They take in animals from all over San Diego, including those facing euthanasia because of medical or behavorial issues. For these forgotten pets, this place is their “Last Chance At Life.” LCAL started as the Boxers N Birds rescue back in 1986 when Lisa Hamilton was rescuing dogs and taking them into her home. She joined Mission Animal Hospital in 1988 with Dr. Robert Cartin and began taking in more medical needs animals. When Mission Animal & Bird Hospital moved to Oceanside, Dr. Cartin let the rescue use the old facility as their adoption center. The name of the rescue was then changed to Last Chance at Life. LCAL rescues animals from other counties as well, such as Cassidy, a Doberman Pinscher from Riverside County. Cassidy’s broken leg was going to be amputated, but was exited to LCAL’s care to see if his leg could be saved. Although Cassidy’s LCAL vets agreed that it had to be amputated, Cassidy has been doing well, adapting quickly with a missing leg. LCAL is currently searching for a home for Cassidy. Through the efforts of the LCAL Thrift Store and fundraising, they will continue to grow. Last year saw over 200 pets adopted and they want to make an even bigger dent this year. Visit their website, www.lastchanceatlife.org, for more information on adoptions and rescues. ¢

MISO GLAZED delicata squash Ingredients 2

2 1 1 2 1

medium to large delicata squash (you can also use butternut and kabocha, but those would have to be peeled) Salt, to taste tablespoons dark sesame oil tablespoon mirin tablespoon sake tablespoons white miso tablespoon brown sugar

Directions 1. 2. 3.

4. 5.

6. 7. 8. 9.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil. Cut the squash in ½ thick rounds and cut out the seeds so you keep the ring shape. Place in a bowl, season with a little salt and toss with 1 ½ tablespoons of the sesame oil. Lay the slices in one layer on the baking sheet(s). Roast the squash for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. To make the glaze, combine mirin and sake in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat for 20 seconds. Turn the heat to low and stir in the miso and brown sugar. Whisk over medium-low heat, without letting the mixture boil, until the brown sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and whisk in the remaining sesame oil. Remove the squash from the oven. Heat the broiler. Turn over the slices and brush each with the miso glaze. Place under the broiler, about 2 inches from heat and broil for about 1 minute or until the glaze begins to bubble and look shiny. Remove from heat. Makes: 4 to 6 servings Total Time: 40 minutes

ome people long to spread their wings and fly the coop. Others treasure their hometown so much, they have no desire to search for greener pastures. The Cote family falls in the latter category. Patriarch Chris, who lives in Leucadia with his wife Marie and two young sons, London, 5, and Roman, 2, even lives across the street from the house he grew up in (where his mom still resides). He proudly stated, “We’ve had the chance to relocate so many times, but why move when you already live in the best place there is? We love living in Leucadia! There are great schools, fantastic beaches, wonderful people and amazing places to hang out; and yeah, it’s still funky.” Chris likes it a little funky, and his employment positions reflect his fondness for an urban eclectic-cool vibe. He recently started his own company, Cote Media Group, and as a content director for GrindTV, he does freelance work for such trendsetting magazines and websites as Transworld SKATEboarding, Monster Children, STAB and Later. He also consults for emerging brands such as Hitcase, an iPhone case company, and works closely with Tim Swart at UNIV, an Encinitas-based streetwear brand and shop. Wife Marie also has her finger on the pulse of edgy-chic hipness, working for Julez Bryant, a Carlsbad-based high-end hand-crafted jewelry company. The Cotes regularly enjoy the wonderful outdoor activities that living in Leucadia affords them. Marie mentioned, “Our interests include surfing, skateboarding and lots of beach time. We also take advantage of the parks and trails around town, especially the Torrey Pines State Park trails and the San Elijo Lagoon area. We try to get to one of those spots every weekend.” Grateful for all that they have, the Cotes wanted to spread the love. They joined forces with Chris’ brother and sister last November to host the first annual Toys for Tots Surf “WE’VE HAD THE CHANCE TO RELOCATE Jam at Moonlight Beach, followed by a pancake SO MANY TIMES, BUT breakfast at UNIV. Three WHY MOVE WHEN YOU giant boxes of toys were ALREADY LIVE IN THE collected for children in BEST PLACE THERE IS?” need, and local businesses even donated raffle prizes. Chris elaborated, “It was such a fun day. We had a great turnout and got really fun waves, as well as a nice pancake breakfast party.” Something tells us every day probably feels like a party for the exciting Cote clan. ¢ Parents: Children: Community: Hometown: Profession: Pet:

Introducing “Rain Shadow” by Local Couple

Longtime 92024 residents, Rebecca and Laurent Carrer, have recently completed a creative joint venture. Rebecca’s new novel “Rain Shadow” is about the Los Angeles and Owens Valley conflict over the aqueduct bringing the Owens River water to the city. This past Nov. 5 was the centennial of the opening day celebration, when William Mulholland christened the water cascading down into the San Fernando Valley with the oft-quoted words: “There it is – take it.” The couple then thought of creating a musical score to align with certain chapters and passages in the book. If movies could have their own soundtracks, why not books? Adding to the local Encinitas vibe, all compositions were recorded at SpragueLand, with Peter Sprague, an Encinitas musical hero, playing on several of the tracks. You can find more about the novel by visiting www.rainshadownovel.com.

Little Jumps, Big Changes!

During the month of February, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego will hold its 3rd Annual Little Jumps, BIG Changes campaign. Little Jumps provides lessons and knowledge to club members about how to lead active and healthier lifestyles, while also raising funds to support the Clubs’ three priority outcomes: academic cuccess, character development and healthy lifestyles. According to the Boys & Girls Clubs, this campaign is very important, given the alarming national statistics of childhood obesity and the serious health risks our youth face, such as diabetes and heart disease. They are asking everyone to make a minimum $15 donation to support the 25,000 youth served annually by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego. To make a donation or for more information about the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Diego head over to www.sdyouth.org/littlejumps.aspx.

Her long involvement for more than twenty years is a testament to her dedication, commitment and success,” stated David H. Crean, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. “We are truly blessed to have Marineke in our organization as a strong advocate for the children we reach out to and serve.” Outside of the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, Marineke volunteers for Mama’s Kitchen providing meals to others in need.

Shockwave Robotics, The Grauer School’s FIRST robotics team, From left to right: Andrea Sanchez, K.J. Newman, had a 4-0-1 record Maddy Gardner, and David Lilburn. Not pictured: Erik at the Los Angeles Guetz, Alexandra Stibor, and Max Greiner. qualifier competition and was ranked 2nd place overall out of twenty-two teams going into the semifinals. The team was narrowly defeated in the final round and was a team finalist for the Control Award and the 3rd place winner of the Inspire Award. The outstanding results have qualified the team to move on to the Los Angeles Regional Championship in February. The team has over fifty percent new members with Andrea Sanchez, Erik Guetz, Max Greiner, and Alexandra Stibor joining returning teammates K.J. Newman, Maddy Gardner, and David Lilburn. Last year’s team won first place in the Inspire category at the Los Angeles Regional Championship, guaranteeing them a spot at the World Championship. This is the fifth year that The Grauer School has had a FIRST robotics team qualifiy for the World Championship every year since its inception.

Founded in 2004, the Knit for the Cure Campaign recruits knitters and crocheters to create handmade items to be sold at various Komen events, one of which included the Race for the Cure which was held on Nov. 3 in Balboa Park. Although most items are created by San Diego County residents, the campaign had knitters and crocheters from all over including Connecticut, Virginia, and New York. This year, some San Diego knitters also formed a team and participated in the race. Knit for the Cure raised over $5,300 this year. Seventy-five percent of the funds raised remain right here in San Diego to cover every step of the breast health journey – from education, outreach, mammograms, and diagnostics, to surgeries, chemotherapy, and more. The remaining 25% of each dollar raised funds national research to discover the causes and cures for breast cancer. For information on how to become involved in next year’s campaign contact barbara.susangkomen@gmail.com.

Celebrating 30 Years at the Solana Center

It was 1983 when the Solana Center first opened its doors. Throughout the organization’s early years it was known as Solana Recyclers, the vision of an idealistic UCSD graduate named Brooke Nash. The beginning was a humble one, with one used truck they collected recycling every other week from any resident that would sign up. Introducing residents of San Diego County to curbside recycling was a grassroots effort in its truest form, and as with most efforts of this nature, there were hurdles to overcome. With curbside recycling being in its infancy, slowly but surely the Solana Recyclers carved out their place in the community. Over the years the focus of the Solana Center has broadened to include other areas of environmental concern. While recycling has become the cornerstone, there are many less practiced conservation methods that they want to make known to the public. Armed with thirty years of experience, the Solana Center continues to evolve. The plans for tomorrow are being shaped by the lessons of yesterday, and the future is bright.

Stuart Grauer, founder of The Grauer School, discovered the secret to school success in 1991, after seventeen years of teaching kindergarten through post graduate classes in U.S. and international public and private schools settings. Grauer explained, “Many years of research have shown that in schools of 230 or fewer, there are significant gains in connectedness, academic achievement, and safety (physical and emotional).” At The

Grauer School, Grauer capped enrollment at 150 for grades 7 through 12, and current parents and students immediately feel safe and connected as they enter campus. “Accreditors identified the special ingredient in our campus atmosphere as ‘love,’” said Elizabeth Braymen, the admissions director. In fact, according to 2013 survey data, nearly 100% of Grauer students like school because they feel teachers and administrators support them and respect their opinions. Braymen suggested, “Our music and STEM programs give teachers and students the forums they

students complete over 100 community service hours before graduating. Two alumni started non-profit organizations, and Nick, an alumni, revealed, “At The Grauer School, I have become exactly the person I want to be.” Excellence is the norm at The Grauer School. Dr. Grauer recently published a book entitled Real Teachers: True Stories of Renegade Educators and created the Small Schools Coalition to provide a network for small schools and provide awareness of small school benefits. He also recently received the 2014 Alumni Career Achievement Award from the University of San Diego. Most Grauer teachers graduated from their collegiate programs with honors and currently demonstrate a commitment to humanitarian service and international or intercultural immersion experience. The recent Class of 2013 had an amazing 89% college application acceptance rate and collectively earned $6.8 million in merit-based scholarships. According to Braymen, the ultimate goal of The Grauer School is to offer the best college preparatory education via expeditionary and Socratic learning anywhere. Parents hoping to enroll their children in The Grauer School for the 2014-2015 academic year should apply quickly before the remaining openings disappear. ¢

The Little Leagues in 92024 Step Up to the Plate photos by Soul of Photography

O

n any given spring Saturday in 92024, hundreds of parents and players can be found gathering around the baseball diamonds for both Encinitas Little League (ELL) and Encinitas National Little League (ENLL). While spectators enjoy fresh hot dogs and cracker-jacks, young players are learning the fundamentals of teamwork and

sportsmanship. With the abundance of players and talent that our young ballplayers bring to the table, it’s only a matter of time until we see a 92024 All-Star team battling their way to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. So get out your eye black, pop in some sunflower seeds, and work in that glove because Little League baseball season is back!

ELL At A Glance

with Encinitas Little League President, Todd Sleet

What is the history behind Encinitas Little League (ELL)? Encinitas Little League started as Northern San Dieguito Little League in 1957, with one baseball field next to highway 101 and Moonlight Beach. The league started with sixty players on four teams. In 1959, ELL moved to “Ecke Field” on Saxony Road, where they had a Majors field and a Minors field. Ecke Field turned into the YMCA fields, where ELL currently plays on four fields, from T-ball to Juniors division, all within one location. The league was Encinitas Little League in the 1980s; Encinitas National Little League formed in 1986 due to the eastward growth of Encinitas. The primary goal of ELL is to allow all kids to play recreational baseball, with tens of thousands of players having been a part of our program. ELL has also enjoyed dozens of championship all star and tournament teams, including four teams (1968, 2010, 2011, 2012) that have finished in the top eight or higher in Southern California. Recently, ELL has been fortunate to win two championship banners each of the past four seasons, starting in 2010. Today, our league does its best to carry on the goal of the League Constitution set forth in 1957; teach “the ideals of good sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and reverence” through organized baseball.

Name of Organization: Encinitas Little League Website: www.ellbaseball.org

to fourteen years old. We will register 460 kids and play 500+ baseball games, using over 1,000 baseballs and logging over 3,000 volunteer hours.

What is the traditional Little League season for ELL? ELL teams will form on Feb. 1 and will play games from Opening Day on March 1 until Closing Day on May 31. All six divisions (Juniors, Majors, Minor A, Minor B, Rookies, T-ball) will play games between these dates. After May 31, our kid pitch divisions will enter a post season Coast Cities Tournament, concluding mid-June. We will then have four teams participate in the Little League All Star Tournament, which will begin June 15 and possibly conclude in mid-August in Williamsport, PA. Fall baseball will start Sept. 5 and conclude on Nov. 23.

What is the goal of ELL as a whole? The goal of ELL is simple. Teach the youth of our community to love baseball, while fostering lifelong relationships and instilling ethics and sportsmanship into each player. This is established through hard work and dedication of our hundreds of volunteer coaches, team parents and board members.

What is the make-up of the 2014 ELL?

Are there any changes this season that players need to be aware of?

The league in 2014 will be made of six different divisions, ranging from boys and girls aged five

We work hard to give the players and parents the best experience each and every year with

36 • 92024Magazine.com • January | February 2014

new additions. The ELL board is in meetings now to add a few features to the baseball fields and to the snack bar, but we need to keep it secret until Opening Day on March 1.

What do the league registration fees cover? The fee covers jerseys, hats, baseballs, umpires, team/individual pictures, field maintenance, practice field usage costs, Little League charter registration, scholarships, and training equipment costs.

How does a business or family become a sponsor? Email our Sponsor Chair, Chris Cooperman, at donate@ellbaseball.org.

How does ELL run such an organized program? Every nonprofit will answer “volunteers”. We are no different. ELL has an amazing community of parents and coaches who all have the common goal of teaching our kids. Our nineteen member Board o f Directors is amazing. Anything that needs to be done gets done, as soon as yesterday! We are truly fortunate to live in a remarkable neighborhood for Little League baseball.

Does ELL hold any fundraisers? We have one fundraiser every year, the ELL Home Run Derby. This is just like the MLB homerun derby. We have every age represented, with different distances for specific ages. The kids get sponsors for number of swings. They have a


blast and ELL benefits from the funds received. This spring 2014 will be our fifth annual; it will be held on Opening Day, March 1, 2014.

How could a community member volunteer their time to help ELL? We have many projects in February and will have additional needs near the end of the season. They can email me directly if they are interested at president@ellbaseball.org.

six years, participation in ELL has stayed steady over that period, when most other leagues in North County San Diego have seen significant declines. We believe our emphasis on community oriented baseball, our excellent facilities and relationship with the YMCA and City of Encinitas, volunteers and parents result in our participants having a great time playing recreational baseball in our community, ultimately contributing to our strong retention rate.

What is your role as ELL president? What is the biggest challenge that ELL faces? Retention. Little League nationally and locally has seen participation decline for various reasons. We have been very fortunate over the last five to

My role is to run daily operations. To lead and organize board members, insuring they have enough information and support to do their specific jobs. I run monthly board meetings and answer all

calls/emails regarding Encinitas Little League. It would be impossible to do this job without a strong Board. I am thankful for them every day, especially now with registration in full swing.

What is the most rewarding thing of being ELL president? The players. Seeing our youth of Encinitas having success during games/practices, playing this game that I absolutely love; there is no better sport than baseball. Watching hundreds and now thousands (I’ve been in the league eleven years) of Encinitas Little League players have fun, learn and want to come back every year, makes each day worthwhile. I am very fortunate to be president of ELL.

Name of Organization: Encinitas National Little League Website: www.ENLL.org

What is the history behind Encinitas National Little League (ENLL)?

What is the traditional Little League season for ENLL?

Are there any changes this season that players need to be aware of?

ENLL has been part of the community for over twenty years. We currently play home games at Park Dale Lane Elementary School.

The season begins in January and runs through July for players, but the League runs year-round for board volunteers. The season exemplifies character, courage, commitment, and individual growth for our players.

We continue to develop divisions for our kids to play recreational ball well into high school. We developed a new juniors program for our thirteen to fourteen year olds. We want this important age to have a chance to continue to play organized baseball.

What is the make-up of the 2014 ENLL? K through 8th grade; Encinitas Union School District with Diegueno and Oak Crest Middle schools. We have players from five years old to fourteen years old. We have around 450 players and many parent volunteers. We are a nonprofit all-volunteer program that is 100% reliant on our wonderful community.

What is the goal of ENLL as a whole? “Where kids can be kids”; courage, commitment, character, and a place to enjoy the great game of baseball. We like to see confidence build and citizen development through rec baseball for our players and community. We want our kids to have fun.

What do the league registration fees cover? Our league is different because we play at Park Dale Lane Elementary School and pay for field use. Altogether, the fees cover everything except personal equipment. Fees go towards fields, uniforms, equipment, and Little League International.

How does a business or family become a sponsor? Go to our website (www.enll.org) and contact myself, our Sponsorship Director Howard Joelson, or any board member. We also have a donate button. Donors are usually local families and businesses; in return, we like to support local entrepreneurs. Our sponsors all come from our local community. They are listed on our website.

How does ENLL run such an organized program? Volunteers and more volunteers! We run an organized program through our hardworking community.

Does ENLL hold any fundraisers? We hold fundraisers on Opening Day and Closing Day, but anyone can donate by going to our website.

How could a community member volunteer their time to help ENLL? Contact me or our director of sponsorships. Anyone can volunteer by contacting us at www.enll.org.

38 • 92024Magazine.com • January | February 2014


What is the biggest challenge that ENLL faces? Rising costs to run an all-volunteer nonprofit for the benefit of our community and children. Our biggest challenge to running an all-volunteer nonprofit is the rising cost associated with Little League baseball. It will take our entire community, businesses, and government to keep it alive.

What is your role as ENLL president? Work within the rules of Little League International as an all-volunteer/nonprofit organization while maintaining future board members to run the organization for our future. My role is simply to push the proverbial ball forward and make sure the kids are having fun.

What is the most rewarding thing of being ENLL president? When that one player, not the All Star, but the kid who struggles with his or her athleticism, guts it out and has a rewarding season and tells his/ her parents that they love baseball and want to play again next year. We are also very proud of our Youth Umpiring program. When little Joey gets the big hit, has that smile on his face, as his teammates are cheering him on. ¢

DRUMBEATS BY DRE DrumBeats by DRE is On the Pulse of San Diego by KELLEY GUSICH | photos by Soul of Photography

David Esau (33) Encinitas for 2 years Playing Drums, Photography, Exercise, Surfing, Live Music Zenbu, Union, Pipe’s, Fish 101, Lou’s Records, East Village facebook.com/drumbeatsbydre drumbeatsbydre @drumbeatsbydre

RHYTHM We follow a definite beat in the movement of our lives. Such is the story of 92024 resident David Esau. A San Diego native and El Capitan graduate, David started drumming in high school, then joined the drumline at SDSU. Even though he had no quad playing experience and few music reading skills, he flourished and garnered the University’s very first presentation of the Most Improved award. TEMPO David’s stage name, DrumBeats by DRE, has the advantage of being his actual initials, but also allows for some widespread name recognition. David’s friend Will Hernandez, a local DJ, called David to play a live show. “I was lucky enough to know Mike Garcia from the Saddle Bar and they gave us a shot last February,” David explained. “We now play at least once a month there.”

CADENCE Giving back to the community is a big part of the mission for DrumBeats by DRE/DJ Will Hernandez. Recently, they played at Zenbu in Cardiff, with all raffle ticket proceeds going toward helping children in Panama go to school.

40 • 92024Magazine.com • January | February 2014

They also performed earlier in the month at a private charity function benefiting the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. “My role as an artist is to add an element and texture of sound to compliment my DJ and his style,” David shared. “When you add a live drummer with an exciting DJ and a good cause, you can accomplish a goal.” People can see DrumBeats by DRE/DJ Will Hernandez in numerous San Diego locations – they have a residency at Saddle Bar every first Thursday, and at Barley Mash (their favorite downtown spot), once a month on Tuesday nights. PULSE David Esau is now rocking the socks off the locals, but there are interesting tidbits about his life that aren’t common knowledge. He is a massive foodie, posting photos from all his favorite spots – East Village Asian Diner, Zenbu, Saddle Bar, and Pacific Coast Grill, to name a few. His entire family lives in East County, and his parents are high school sweethearts. His experience includes performing in an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba (“Let’s Dress Up.”). And when asked the best part about being connected to and involved in the community, David told us, “It’s rewarding for me because I’m playing music and helping others while doing something I love.” ¢

TEAM GODFATHER CHARITY Greg Sacks & Kevin McCauley Raise Funds for Lou Gehrig’s Disease by LINDA FRABL | photos by Soul of Photography

G

reg Sacks and Kevin McCauley have been good friends for more than twenty years, and are always there for each other. When Greg’s other best friend, Mike Ramirez, was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrig’s Desease), Kevin was right there, ready to assist in any way. Therefore, when Greg and Mike started an ALS Foundation in 2010 called Team Godfather (in honor of Mike’s nickname), whose purpose is to raise funds for medical research in hopes of finding a cure for ALS, Kevin attended that first foundation meeting and found a new vocation. “I looked into the eyes and faces of both Mike and his family and decided that I needed to make a change in my life, to get involved and become a better citizen and person,” Kevin recalled. He is now a board member on the Team

Godfather Charitable Foundation, alongside Greg, who is the chairman. The foundation raises money through various fundraising events, including a “Bike 4 Mike” community bike ride, fun-themed golf tournaments and the “Groovin' for a Cure” live music extravaganza, which will be held on March 6 at the Belly Up Tavern. Greg acknowledged, “We live in a most remarkable community, because the support for our foundation is incomparable.” In addition to their commitment to Team Godfather, Greg and Kevin are also committed to their families and to their professions. Both are married with two grown children, and Greg does custom residential landscape construction/ maintenance, while Kevin is a general contractor. Both men are also into outdoor pursuits, such as snow sports, water sports, running, bicycling and

hiking. Greg added, “I also love playing poker, gardening and doing home remodeling projects.” Kevin piped in, “I am an obsessive jock; you name it, I do it – none of it well, but I’m always doing something in a high-energy way.” As for the most fulfilling aspects of their foundation efforts, Kevin proclaimed, “Hearing the feedback and gratitude of doing something positive has been rewarding, as well as seeing my ‘Bike 4 Mike’ idea become a reality.” Greg shared, “It is rewarding to see the participation of the 20-to-30year-old kids; they come because they get it.” With these two motivated men at the helm, we’re sure even more of the community will also “get it,” and join in to help this great cause. ¢

SDA’s New Stadium & Turf Project

S

an Dieguito Academy (SDA) is currently under construction, with the exciting installation of a new field turf and stadium. According to Doug Kamon, Assistant Principal and Athletic Director of SDA, Phase one of the project will include a new synthetic turf field, new all-weather track, new scoreboard, new fencing, improved electrical system, landscaping, and improved drainage. SDA will be able to begin playing on the turf and running on the track sometime in January 2014. Phase two of the project will be the construction of new bleacher seating, pressbox, new restrooms, and storage. Phase two is projected to be completed before graduation in June 2014 and SDA plans on holding graduation ceremonies within the new stadium. SDA was founded in 1936 and has grown exponentially since then. A new turf and stadium was just what the school desired to provide a better arena for their sports teams and physical education classes to play on. ¢

EEF’s Early Christmas Present

T

he students of the Encinitas Union School District (EUSD) received a special early Christmas treat this past December: Legoland Community Day. Families from the district enjoyed a discounted day at Legoland California and Sea Life Aquarium, plus a little something extra, courtesy of the Encinitas Educational Foundation (EEF). The EEF usually saves this family fun-filled event for the springtime, but in typical holiday cheer, the venue not only gave families discounted tickets, but invited them back with a free return ticket just by turning in their used ticket at the end of the day. EEF considers this event their gift to all families in attendance. In addition, EUSD families didn’t have to share the day with any other organizations. The most special event of the day was what Legoland called “snow days”, where they had actual snow for kids to play in as an exhibit. According to Melissa McGhee, Executive Director at EEF, “With a winter crowd in play and plenty of snow in the park, EEF had a successful day! EEF will most likely make this event a new annual tradition.” Next year EEF plans to add entertainment provided by their community of elementary students. ¢

He cheered on my flag team and I his baseball team in high school. We had our first date at nineteen, became a couple in 1999, and this year he proposed.

The duo decided to join Coldwell Banker in 2009 when they noticed the market changing, to take advantage of their powerful leadership, brand marketing, and networking opportunities. The Silbermans are thrilled to be working out of the Encinitas/La Costa Coldwell Banker office. The camaraderie amongst agents is refreshing and they value the partnerships they’ve established. Part of their success comes from leveraging their exposure. You can find them in email campaigns, shopping carts, and magazines, and they use social networking to their advantage. “Joining forces as a real estate team has been a win/win career move that enables us to still serve our community as well as help families find their next home,” said Diane. “We couldn’t be happier to be living and working in North County. I truly believe that what you give out, you get back and so far, it’s working for us.” ¢

s a husband and wife real estate team with Coldwell Banker, Kevin and Diane Silberman know how important a home is, and are proud to help families make their next move. When Kevin and Diane started their family, they planted roots in Encinitas. They loved the small town feel, beautiful beaches, and friendly atmosphere of North County. The couple and their four children have woven tight bonds within their community. “For us, real estate is about building lasting relationships and being involved in whatever way we can to help our clients and community thrive,” said Diane Silberman. The advantage to working with their real estate team is you have two agents, with different skill sets, collaborating to meet your needs. Kevin typically works the transaction and negotiation sides, and Diane markets listings and facilitates the search for the client’s next home. Both believe strongly in

educating consumers about current market conditions and having open, honest lines of communication throughout every transaction. “We truly care about our client’s happiness, and want to help them make smart investments,” said Kevin. Kevin began his career in real estate finance as a loan officer and then moved into the residential side of real estate. He became a broker, owning and operating two successful brokerages, and closing over 100 transactions. Diane joined the business later, bringing extensive community connections through years of fundraising with the group “Boobs on the Move”, which she founded. Her organization has helped to raise over $500,000 for breast cancer charities. She has also been an active volunteer for Flora Vista Elementary School and the Encinitas Educational Foundation. Her professional background in interior design staging, management, and event promotions have transitioned naturally

Surf’s Up!

San Dieguito Surfing

S

urfing is a tough sport. To maneuver a board as it slices through a wave is both impressive and skillful. For the members of the San Dieguito Academy (SDA) Surf Team, surfing has become so instrumental in their lives that they compete against other high school surf teams for domination in the sport. The SDA Surf Team has been a local powerhouse since the 1970s. Currently, there are seventy members with approximately thirty of them on the competitive team. The team participates in the Scholastic Surf Series with a team in both Division 1 and Division 2, which translates to varsity and junior varsity. This year, both varsity and junior varsity have remained undefeated after three contests, coming out on top above the other high schol surf teams in San Dieguito School District. The team also values community service, and requires each team member to participate in community service each year. Taking it a step further, the team takes a trip each year to Central America and other locations, where they give back by participating in a project to help the local community. Last year the team coordinated with the Rob Machado Foundation and their Hydration Nation program in Nicaragua. If you’re down by the beaches this coming year, keep a look out for these fantastic surfers. ¢

Talent + Community = SDA

W

ho remembers Drake Bell from Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh TV show? Whose listened to the punk-rock beats of the band The Burning of Rome? Who supports anti-bullying, individuality, and freedom of expression? Who enjoys viewing colorful artwork at a gallery opening? San Dieguito Academy (SDA), home of creative opportunities and unexpected possibilities, would answer “I do!” to all of the above. Music has forever been an important aspect of the SDA culture. Every year, Battle of the Bands takes place where student bands compete against each other for the winning title. This year, there was a wide range of genres, from alternative to heavy metal and jazz to indie-rock. Battle of the Bands is typically judged by teachers, but this year, Drake Bell, a famous Hollywood TV star, made a special appearance. Countless photos were taken by screaming fans, mostly girls, and posted on Facebook that very night. His appearance complimented the culture of SDA: unpredictable, memorable, and unique. In addition to Bell’s presence, The Burning of Rome, a band founded in San Diego, performed in the Mosaic Cafe during lunch on Nov. 20. This alternative-rock band has opened for acts such as The Black Keys, MGMT, and Skrillex. Crowds of students watched the performance, bobbed their heads, and even danced to a few songs. The month of November was truly a music infestation at SDA. Community, a word that resembles both the character of the Mustang

students and SDA. Community Day, a day where volunteered students promoted expression, anti-bullying, and school spirit, took place for the first time ever at SDA. I, being a volunteer, spoke out against bullying and shared personal experiences with my classmates. The students bonded and learned more about each other, ultimately making it a memorable moment for the school. Art is seen everywhere throughout the campus of SDA. It is visible on the walls, in the classrooms, in the courtyards, and in the student art gallery. SDA’s art gallery opened during Veterans Day week to showcase the Mustangs diverse art pieces: sculptures, paintings, acrylic drawings, and photographs. The students also had the chance to display their pieces at the Del Mar Art Center Gallery, where an award ceremony took place. In addition, throughout the school year, “live action painting” occurs, where students put up a wall on campus and paint it. That’s pretty awesome, considering that most public high schools lack emphasis on art. To wrap it up, talent, community, and infinite possibilities equal SDA. You never know what you’ll find on campus and what you’ll learn beyond the school. ¢ Gabby Catalano is an incoming senior at San Dieguito Academy.

new year brings transitions. For some of us, we attribute that to the age-old saying, “Out with the old, and in with the new!” And when we say that, we’re usually standing in front of our closets, or our kids’ closets, and wondering where we can haul off all those unused goods. Before you bag it up and take it to your nearest donation drop-off, consider that there are ways to both donate your unused or gently used clothing, and still give back to the community. How, you ask? All around San Diego, there are specialty thrift stores that directly benefit a local cause. Do you love animals? There’s a thrift shop that benefits a humane society. Want to help the American Cancer Society? There’s a shop for that too. Take a look at some thrift shops around San Diego that give back to the community, and you might even find one in your neighborhood that you never knew was there. 

espite the rainfall and the chilly night air during the Encinitas Holiday Parade, the event was still a success with spectators and participants alike. This year’s parade theme was “Growing Holiday Cheer” – celebrating 92024’s rich agricultural history, from flowers to fruit trees, and everything in between. This year’s Grand Marshal was Evelyn Weidner, a fellow “green thumb,” who even has a Begonia named after her. A longtime fixture on the Encinitas flower scene, and an icon in Encinitas’ growing history, Evelyn lead the nearly 100 entries down the 101, including the San Dieguito Academy Mustang Band and the Miss Carlsbad and Miss Teen Carlsbad pageant ladies with their courts. ¢

Real Estate News and Reality in Regards to You by DIANE and KEVIN SILBERMAN

I

n 2013, real estate news was all over the map. One day it was a seller’s market with bidding wars and record low interest rates. The next, we heard about a cooling market and escalating rates. With ever changing information, how much weight should you give the latest real estate news? Is now the right time to buy, or should you wait? Is this another bubble? Follow these strategies to avoid information overload:

Get Educated about Financing Research your mortgage rate options. In strong markets, buyers feel pressure to move quickly and tend to do less shopping around. Don’t act simply because of the recent rise in mortgage rates. They’re still near historic lows. Don’t say “no” to the perfect home just because you think rates might go down in a month. Talk to multiple lenders and find one who will answer your questions and walk you through the process.

Be Patient Buying a home is a huge deal. Whether you’re a first time buyer or not, learn the market, see all available properties and comparison shop. You don’t want buyer’s remorse on the largest purchase of your life. Your local agent can provide you with a neighborhood analysis so that you feel confident in your investment. Ultimately, the right time to buy is when you’ve found the place you love, organized your finances, committed to the local community, and are ready to reap the tax benefits of homeownership. That’s when it’s time to make your move!

Diane and Kevin Silberman

It’s Tough to Time a Real Estate Transaction

Helping you Make Your Move!

Without a crystal ball, there’s no way to time a home purchase. New opportunities and different circumstances present themselves in every home buying and selling situation. Local trends often vary greatly from national real estate news. But, you can be prepared in any market. Do your research, line up financing, and be ready and able to make your move when the right property pops up.
