:::: FROM THE PUBLISHER A Tribute to Poway’s Crime Fighters Half of the 18 incorporated cities in the County of San Diego contract their law enforcement services with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department – and, of the nine (Del Mar, Encinitas, Imperial Beach, Lemon Grove, Poway, San Marcos, Santee, Solana Beach and Vista), Poway consistently ranks as the lowest or among the lowest in terms of crime rate. That’s great news for the residents of 92064! It’s also a tribute to the management and fine officers and staff working out of the Poway Station. But as Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Hernandez explains in this issue’s cover story (beginning on Page 34), Poway did experience an increase in total crimes reported in the first six months of this year compared to 2010. Hernandez, a Poway High School graduate who took command of Sheriff’s Department operations in Poway in April when former Capt. Mark Elvin was promoted, details in the article how local residents can reduce crime in their hometown: ●● “Almost half the burglary calls in Poway are thefts from vehicles. The easiest way to prevent this type of crime is to not leave valuables in a vehicle.” ●● “Be a good witness. Most people are keenly aware of their neighborhood. We encourage the citizens of Poway to report any suspicious activity in their neighborhood.” ●● “Avoid complacency. Burglars tend to be opportunists. Leaving homes or vehicles unsecured is an invitation. ALSO IN THIS ISSUE, be sure to: ●● Read about the multi-talented Poway resident who not only has her first album scheduled, but also makes her acting debut in a major motion picture (Page 13). ●● Check out Poway’s Gail Matson, a dedicated school advocate who has volunteered extensively at three different campuses (Page 14). ●● Catch the heart-warming story about a local group that is organizing trips to the war memorials in Washington D.C. for combat veterans throughout the region – including Poway (Page 18). ●● Get an update on the Poway Unified School District Foundation’s goals and priorities to raise awareness and resources to better educate the school district’s students (Page 24). Enjoy the read. All the best, Derrick Breaux, PUBLISHER

Multi-Talented Stevie Porzak’s First Album, Acting Debut Near By ZEENA GREGG

S

tevie Nicole Porzak wrote her first song at the age of 15 and hasn’t stopped since. Porzak and her best friend started writing country music together while playing guitar and experimenting with chords. “The singing didn’t come until much later though,” said Porzak, now 32 and living in Poway. “I was plagued with terrible stage fright – much too shy to let anyone hear what I knew I could do in my head.” But as she got older, Porzak learned to let her fears go and, with support from her manager, became a performer. “He really believed in me and it gave me the confidence I didn’t know I had,” she explained. These days, Porzak isn’t letting anything hold her back. Working with guitarist/ engineer Tim Iler of Voltage Studios in Temecula, they have been recording her debut album – due out later this year. Porzak also is making her acting debut in the upcoming motion picture, “Geezers”, scheduled for release in November. The film, which also features some of Porzak’s

facebook.com/92064magazine

music, is a comedy about a group of mischievous senior citizens starring Tim Allen, JK Simmons and Kyra Sedgwick. “I was really excited to be a part of it. I make an appearance in the film as well and wrote some of the soundtrack, “ said Porzak, who is married to professional golfer Adam Porzak and mother of a 2-year-old son. “It was a really great opportunity for me and I had a ton of fun with it.” Recently, Porzak was given the opportunity to write a song for singer Frankie J and actress/singer Fernanda Romero. And, if not busy enough, she also volunteers for “Stand up for Kids”, an organization that helps homeless and street kids. But juggling multiple projects doesn’t appear to daunt her. “I think women were just made to do it all,” Porzak said. “As long as I keep my priorities straight – I’m a mom first and foremost – everything seems to fall in to place. It’s just time management and keeping a good balance in life, family and career. I think the best artists are the ones that are well-rounded.” ¢

:::: FACES IN THE CROWD

Matson’s

Advocacy for Schools Includes Three PUSD Campuses By JENNIFER SOUSA photo by Zeena Gregg Photography by JENNIFER SOUSA

W

hen Poway’s Gail Matson married a school teacher in 1997 – and three years later adopted twin 5½-year-old children – she knew she wanted involvement beyond just parenting. “I have been involved in the Parent Teacher Association since our children started first grade at Midland Elementary School,” said Matson, noting that Daniel and Mariah are now age 17 and attending Mt. Carmel High School in Rancho Penasquitos. “And I served as PTA president at all three schools (including Black Mountain Middle School, and currently at MCHS, where husband Ken teaches).” Matson is proud of many things connected to her volunteer activities, but she specifically mentions two programs involving Poway Unified School District campuses. “The PTA Reflections program is near and dear to my heart,” she said. “This National PTA arts recognition program is held during the fall at all units and many students advance to council, district and even the national level. I have a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree in photography, played the clarinet on and off my whole life, love to dance and appreciate many forms of art – thus my appreciation for being the Reflections Chair for the local PTA.” In addition, Matson actually trains other Reflections Chairs for all PTA organizations in San Diego and Imperial counties. She’s equally pleased with two current projects she launched involving Mt. Carmel High School: The weekly Farmers Market and the MCHS Media Sale. “The Farmers Market operates 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday on the MCHS campus, and its main focus is to raise funds for such programs as Grad Nite, Reflections, Coffee with the Principal, Staff Appreciation Breakfasts, Adopt-a-Family, Character Counts and Senior Scholarships,” said Matson, who actually lives in Poway. “And the Media Sale operates twice a year at the MCHS campus, including 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 27-28. Books, CDs, DVDs and other media are donated by the community – and we sell them to local residents, with all funds donated to the Library at the Mount.” But Matson’s community involvement doesn’t stop at the school house door. She also devotes time and energy to the Poway Youth 14

Soccer League, Rancho Bernardo Soccer, Poway Valley Garden Club, and Poway Community Leadership Institute. In addition, she owns and operates Freelance Production, a graphic design company operated from her home; plays in a competitive women’s soccer league; and is an avid gardener. “Growing fruits and veggies and creating foods to share with others is also a passion of mine,” said Matson, mentioning that it’s a love she and her husband share. “We can preserve a lot: Catsup, salsa, stewed tomatoes, applesauce and more.” She even turned the pleasure she gets from working a garden into an opportunity to give something back. “Being the environmentalist that I am, I took a 30-hour class in composting and now donate my knowledge to organizations in San Diego each year giving back those 30 hours (as a San Diego Master Composter, promoting and teaching composting,” she said. ¢

Poway Student Loves School, Dance, Cheer – and Assisting Other Children By SARABETH GRAML

P

oway is where 11-year-old Paige Haywood calls home, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. “I’ve lived here all my life; I can’t imagine living anywhere else,” she said. But it’s her closest friends and family that inspire her. A current student at Twin Peaks Middle School, Paige loves studying and the company of her classmates and teachers. Although her favorite subject is math, she added that she also loves art. “I really enjoy learning and so far I’ve loved all my classes,” she said. “I work hard to get good grades every year.” Born in 2000, Paige is an avid dancer and cheerleader. She actually began cheerleading because she wanted to cheer for her twin brother Drew, who started playing Pop Warner Football a few years ago. “I also admire my cheer coach, Trisha, because she inspires me every day at practice,” Paige said. 16

92064 Magazine

Armed with her flexibility, she has been recognized for being extremely sharp with her moves and stunting -- and for being an excellent dancer during cheer camps. Paige looks up to her mother mostly. “She’s a very hard worker, especially since my dad died this year,” said Paige, who’s mother Sue owns two restaurants in the area (Café Luna and Oggi’s Pizza & Brewing Co., both located in Carmel Mountain). “But she still makes time for me and my brothers.” Paige has a lot of passion to assist children with cancer and disabilities. Working with Locks of Love, Paige has vowed to donate her hair to a child in need as soon as it grows long enough. “I’m hoping there is someone out there that is wishing for a donation of bright red hair,” she said. “Even though I’ll miss my long hair I know it will be a gift to someone special.” ¢ October | November 2011

Trips Honor War Veterans Honor Flight Raises Funds For Washington DC Visits

R

ancho Penasquitos resident Dom (Monte) Montemarano – a World War II veteran who landed at Omaha Beach in 1944 and participated in the Battle of the Bulge – was very moved by his first ever visit to the national war memorials in Washington D.C. earlier this year. “The most emotional impact through this experience was it brought back memories of the war for all of us on the trip,” said Montemarano, 85, who served as an Army private first class for more than two years. “Most of us were chocked up at the sight of the memorials. We regretted that those who did not survive the war didn’t have the opportunity to see this (WWII memorial, completed in 2004).” Montemarano made the trip thanks to Honor Flight San Diego, a nonprofit organization that honors veterans by funding and conducting visits to the nation’s capital and tours of the memorial. The local group – part of a national organization -- was founded in 2010 by Dave Smith of Rancho Penasquitos and Pam Russell of Rancho Bernardo. Both Smith and Russell had fathers who took an Honor Flight trip and credited that experience and its impact on them personally for becoming involved in the organization. “It is very important for the World War II veterans to make these flights to Washington because they can realize the honor and recognition paid to them for our sacrifice and how we all fought for the freedom of our country,” said Montemarano, who now works with Honor Flight San Diego raising funds for other veterans to make the trip. “I talk about the experience often. I was so impressed, not only with

the memorial – but also with the organization and its dedicated work for veterans.” According to Smith, Honor Flight currently has more than 300 veterans on the waiting list in San Diego (and more than 1,200 in Southern California), and more applications arriving daily. “We depend upon donations to make these trips happen. We have the organization to take all these veterans to Washington,” he said. “All we need are the funds to complete our mission.” Honor Flight San Diego is just one of about 100 independent “hubs” linked to the national Honor Flight Network, which has funded trips for more than 65,000 veterans of various wars and military conflicts. “San Diego is running far behind other ‘hubs’ in the U.S. We’re running out of time to thank our WWII veterans,” said Smith, 59, the founder of Professional Workplace Interaction Inc., a training and consulting firm. “Our long-term goal is to take all surviving veterans that served in our wars on a ‘Mission of Honor’ to Washington. My short-term goal is to charter a 747 to get the majority of our current veterans on the local waiting list to the memorial this year.” Montemarano agrees with the urgency. “All WWII veterans should go on this trip, mobile or not,” he said. “It is the best way to show tribute to those of us left. About 1,000 veterans per day are dying – and the organization is trying to give this opportunity to them as quickly as possible.” For more information on Honor Flight San Diego or to volunteer, visit www. honorflightssandiego.org or call Dave Smith at 858-442-8337. Donations may be sent to Honor Flight San Diego, 9423 Keck Court, San Diego, CA 92129. ¢

about the chef

Tim Connole – a Poway resident since 1975 – has a strong connection to Mexico; hence, his selection of a favorite stuffed jalapenos recipe for 92064 Magazine readers. “I built a beach house near San Felipe, Mexico, 28 years ago,” said Connole, a long-time Baja off-road enthusiast. “My wife Doreen and I spend half of our time each winter there, and we’ve learned how make several authentic dishes in that environment.” A retired real estate developer and general contractor, Connole and his wife, Doreen, have four children and six grandchildren. They enjoy flying, golfing, traveling abroad, fly fishing, gardening, woodworking and collecting (and drinking) wine. To finish off the stuffed jalapenos, Connole highly recommended a fine gold Tequila. ¢

e’re there two or three times a week,’ said Joann Whetstein, explaining that husband Tony and their son, 7-year-old son Lee, are very enthusiastic about the Poway Midland Railroad, which is located at the park. “They have been volunteering for two years, since Lee turned 5. They take tickets and also drive the Trolley and Speeder trains.” So dedicated were Tony and Lee to their new volunteer opportunity with the railroad, they actually showed up an hour early on their first day. “Lee was anxious to start working in the trains,” Joann said. “He was so anxious, they just sat on a bench by the train waiting; Lee wasn’t about to miss his shift and was completely focused the whole time.” According to Joann, both Lee and his 4-year-old sister Lily are great ambassadors for Old Poway Park. “They will tell anyone what and when an event is going on – including strangers in line at the grocery checkout, and the parents of kids at the park,” she said. 92064 Magazine

Joann – a self-employed Social Media Marketing Consultant, originally from San Diego – has more than 15 years of experience in corporate direct marketing, working for such companies as Anderson Direct Marketing in Poway (handling such clients as Boeing, Secure Horizons and Sun Microsystems). She worked for almost five years at Intuit as a marketing and affiliate manager, and for Vistage as a marketing director. Tony – owner of Poway Samurai Martial Arts, a traditional martial arts school focusing on the Samurai and Ninja arts, named Kobudo and Ninjutsu – has studied in both the U.S. and Japan with some of the most skilled martial arts instructors. He is also a member of the VFW in Poway, having served in the U.S. Navy during the first Gulf War. He devotes much time to his family, even serving as his children’s home-school teacher and participating in family outings. “We are always attending events in the Poway community such as the Old Fashioned 4th of July, the Train Song Festival and the Christmas in the Park, and Candyland at the Community Park, while it was still going,” Joann said. “We are at the Old Poway Park practically every weekend and helped the VFW with a Motorcycle Bike Run to raise funds to erect the Veterans Park.” And, of course, Tony believes volunteering in the community is very important. “He’s even studying the three-year course necessary to become a driver of the 100-year-old steam engine” that is operated by the PMR in Old Poway Park, Joann noted. No doubt, son Lee also will want to be part of that action as well. ¢

PUSD Foundation Provides Critical Support to Schools and Students

S

ince being conceived and organized in 2003, the Poway Unified School District Foundation has provided more than $1.7 million in critical funding to ensure the success of local students. “Our goal is to promote getting our students ready for college, career or trade after high school,” said PUSD Foundation President Toni Kraft. “We want them to be ready for life.”

Kraft stressed that the non-profit Foundation is necessary because it fills fundraising gaps for schools throughout the district. Its support is focused in three areas: ●● STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) Skills for all students. ●● College and Career Readiness. ●● Rigor, Relevance and Relationships

Supporting such a large district obviously takes a great deal of funding and sweat equity, so the Foundation currently holds two major fundraising events that bookend each year. In addition to a spring golf outing (which raised $50,000), a family-oriented event is scheduled Oct. 22 at Bernardo Winery. “We need a lot of imagination to pull these events together,” said Kraft, noting

that the goal is to raise $35,000 at the October fundraiser. “We couldn’t do these things without the support of all the volunteers.” Kraft said the Foundation’s effectiveness can be seen in the many student activities and programs for which it provides funding and support: ●● Local, state and national competitions, such as DECA, Science Olympiad, and Robotics ●● Career Days and participation with industry partners, such as Women in Engineering; and field trips to Junior Achievement’s Biztown ●● College Fairs and career exploration programs ●● Student internships ●● Technology in the classrooms ●● Training and supplies for Project Lead the Way ●● And when transportation became an issue for the district, the Foundation formed TAKE (Transport All Kids Everyday) and made sure that all students who needed transportation were able to get to school. “Working hip-to-hip with site

foundations and the district is what we are driven by,” Kraft said. “But we will need to stay ahead of the curve and relevant within the world of foundations.” According to Kraft, additional support is needed for the Foundation. “We need people to get involved with the Foundation financially, and with their

energy. Don’t wait; get involved now,” she said. “These children are our future employees and future employers. We need to be sure they are well-educated.” For more information on the PUSD Foundation, visit www.powayusd.com/foundation, call 858-668-4041 or email antoinettekraft@sbcglobal.net. ¢

Simply Amazing!

New All-Natural Weight Management Program Targets Fat and Increases Energy

A

ccording to Rick Micheri, one word describes a new and unique, all-natural weight management program now available locally, “Amazing!” And he should know. After allowing his weight to climb to over 310 lbs. and his health decline, the father of two young daughters knew something had to change...and fast. So he tried the same methods himself, dropping more than 70 lbs. on this program (see photos below). “I started as a skeptical and reluctant client,” said Micheri. “Within a short period of time I saw such great results that I approached the doctor to see if there was an opportunity to be more involved. A few months later we opened the Rancho Bernardo location of Amazing New Me in May 2010.” According to Micheri, Amazing New Me – a whole body naturopathic health center -- gets real results with a philosophy that utilizes all natural products and education. Utilizing the center’s weight loss program, clients reduce fat, increase energy and experience an improved sense of well being. “Most diets today focus on speeding you up and starving you. This is a dangerous combination.” said Micheri. “More often than not, you will lose weight (pounds) at the sacrifice of your lean body tissue (muscles) and water not fat loss. Once you stop eating and drinking their products and begin to

eat normal foods, those muscle tissues will rebuild themselves, therefore gain weight back.” “This is where the Amazing New Me program is set apart from other diets,” Micheri said. “Our program reverses everything. We focus on reduction of fat inches and education to help you to keep it off. This program puts the patients’ bodies in what we call a state of release. The body will naturally release and metabolize about 2,000 calories of fats daily. This is key, as the body bypasses the lean body tissue – what normally is lost by other diet methods. Our patients’ bodies, instead, target the adipose fats (fat layer below the skin) for calories and nourishment. As these fats are reduced it is noticeable more quickly. Your clothes will tell you everything Simply put, the combination of Amazing New Me’s all-natural supplements and an adjusted diet allows the body to burn fat and use this fat as nutrients, he said – which in turn feeds the individual. Even though the patient is consuming between 500-1,000 calories daily, their body is now releasing and metabolizing additional calories from their fat. “That is why our patients are not hungry, have plenty of energy and feel a sense of well-being while on the program,” according to Micheri. . Our most popular programs are a 70-day, (two-cycle) and 150-day, (four-cycle) program.” Micheri points out that typical weight loss during EACH cycle is 7 to 25 lbs., depending upon the individual’s body structure, eating habits, and activity level. “Each cycle is 25-30 days of fat loss, with a two-week maintenance period separating each cycle,” Micheri said, noting that there are three products taken during the weight loss cycles: First is the oral spray, which is taken twice daily (morning and night). Patients keep the product by their bed, applying three sprays under the tongue when they awaken and when they go to bed. The second component is a professional grade sublingual B-12. Patients take 10 drops once daily in the morning. Third is a once-daily supplement capsule taken with breakfast, which assists in appetite control and provides a small amount of energy (many patients often stop this supplement as they progress in the program and appetite control no longer is an issue). A unique part of our program is how each cycle begins for patients. “The first two days of each cycle, you get to binge or splurge or ‘pig out’. We want you consuming 1.5 to 3 times your normal daily caloric intake,” he

‘We believe teaching proper eating habits and portion control along with our program is the best approach to achieve long-term results.’ ~Cyndi Keech, Amazing New Me said. “This abundant ‘satisfied state’ is the first part in shocking your body out of its existing plateau point. The holidays are great for these binge days” Day three of the cycle is the trigger point and the start of the weightloss process. “All you eat are fruits, preferably apples, pears and berries. And no more than eight portions total, which brings the day’s caloric intake to about 500,” according to Micheri. “After that, we recommend 5-7 small meals throughout the day for the rest of the cycle, trying to maintain a daily calorie total never below 500 and not to exceed 1,000” Each cycle then ends with the two week maintenance period, allowing the patient’s body to set a new “zero point” – referring to where the body sets its natural plateau to be maintained. “It’s important to remember that 5 lbs. of fat is a large volume off your body,” he said. “You will see your body melt away and shrink faster than you see pounds come off.” The 70-day (two cycles) program normally is $599, but Amazing New Me’s current Promotion has the program priced at only $349 – or only $5 per day, for all supplements and consultations throughout the program. The 150-day (four cycle) program is the best value at only $4.00 per day. ¢ 858-521-9332 Call for a FREE consultation www.AmazingNewMe.com 16885 W. Bernardo Dr., Suite 230 San Diego, CA 92127

Frequently-Asked Questions About the Weight Management Program

Amazing New Me’s Rick Micheri answered some frequently-asked questions about the center’s weight management program:

Is the program safe?

Yes, your body uses nutrients stored in the adipose fat deposits for additional nourishment. There are no unnatural or synthetic ingredients, no accelerants that speed you up or make you feel shaky or uncomfortable.

How long does it take to see results?

Most clients are astonished in the first two weeks. They can’t believe how quickly their bodies are shrinking.

What is the average weight loss for the program?

The average male patient can lose one pound of fat a day. The average female patient can lose ½ to 1 pound of fat a day.

Will I feel hungry?

No, our products cause the body to use nutrients stored as fat to “feed” you, so you don’t feel physiological hunger. In the beginning days, the low calorie diet may trigger cravings or mental hunger because the body is removing toxins. If this occurs, the program provides an all-natural appetite control capsule.

Will I regain or rebound my weight?

Our program targets fat reduction which is less likely to return. You only restore fat by a continuous overeating over consecutive meals, allowing your body to have surplus calories to store as fat.

Am I required to exercise to see results?

No, it is not required. Although it can improve results, we ask to limit exercise to non-strength building (such as cardio, walking, swimming, stretching, yoga) during each of the weight loss cycles. facebook.com/92064magazine

Wranglers Encourage All To Have Fun, Get Fit and Be Square By JENNIFER SOUSA

n American institution, square dancing is alive and well in San Diego County – thanks to the Wranglers. It all started in 1973 when nine couples completed a square dancing class, and then decided to start a club so that others could join in the fun. “The group first met and danced at the Westwood Club in Rancho Bernardo,” said Don Carnahan, co-president of the The Wranglers Square Dance Club with wife Barbara. “Thus the club is officially chartered as the “Westwood Wranglers.” Although Square Dancing has been around since the early settlers came to New England, it has changed a lot over the years – with popularity fading out for a time, then revived in the 1930s by Henry Ford. Today, the Wranglers maintain the tradition, with 45 members from Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos and 4S Ranch. “The Wranglers club is a fun and friendly group of people who regularly host dances, visit other clubs (there are five other square dance organizations in North San Diego

County), and sponsor classes,” said Carnahan. “It’s a great, safe place to meet new people and have fun. In fact, we recently had two single club members get engaged at a square dance.” Carnahan also noted that square dancing is a proven way to reduce high blood pressure and get a good cardio work out. Wranglers’ regularly offers classes for beginners and for those who want to renew their dancing skills. Although the current class – for both couples and singles – began in September, newcomers with square dancing experience are welcome to begin while the class is in progress. With instruction by accomplished dance “caller” Ray Holmes, each class is 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays at Rolling Hills Elementary School, located at 15225 Penasquitos Drive. The dress is casual and the first class is free (and $5 per week thereafter).

After 50 Years, Poway Valley Garden Club Still Vibrant

P

oway Valley Garden Club celebrated its 50th anniversary in September, fitting with this year’s theme of “Poway Valley Garden Club is Golden”. Established in 1961, the club’s goal was to promote an interest in gardening and related creative activities – as well as to encourage the improvement and beautification of the community and personal property. Fifty years later, the club is still going strong through community service, annual events and monthly meetings. The club provides a variety of community services. Throughout the year members maintain three community gardens. The Rose Garden at Lake Poway was started in 1973 and today showcases 45 rosebushes of various types and colors. It is also the site of a Blue Star Memorial. The Nelson House Period Garden, started in 2003, dem-

onstrates how a 1900 turn of the century garden may have looked in Poway. The newest garden, the Statuary Garden at Templars Hall, features California native planting demonstrating minimal water usage. Another community outreach project the club participates in is providing fresh flower arrangements to local public libraries and senior centers on a weekly basis. And, as part of a conservation project, some of the money raised by the club goes to “Pennies for Pines”, which supports the Cleveland National Forest Reforestation Project. The club is involved in several annual events in the community, as well. The first and foremost is the “Standard Flower Show and Plant Sale”. The club puts on this annual event with both horticultural and design entries. There is also an educational booth and often a children’s activity. The show is

judged by certified judges and prizes are awarded. It is a free event and the public is encouraged to participate. Along with this is the club’s annual giant plant sale with a variety of bargains. The club also participates annually in December Nights, where the club joins other district garden clubs in alliance with the San Diego Floral Association in decorating a Christmas tree in Balboa Park. Each club decorates a tree in accordance with the theme for that year. Another annual event is Christmas in the Park, where the club sponsors a booth at Old Poway Park. The club meets at 9 a.m. monthly on the second Wednesday of the month, September through June, at Templars Hall in Old Poway Park. ¢ This article submitted by Ann Dahnke, on behalf of the Poway Valley Garden Club.

Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead Features Peek at 1880-Era Life

C

an you imagine living in an 1880-era farmstead in Southern California? The Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead provides visitors the opportunity to peek into the world of Inland North County’s earliest American farmers to settle in the state after statehood was achieved. Located just off Interstate 15 near Lake Hodges at the gateway to the San Pasqual Valley Agricultural Preserve, the Sikes Adobe is a registered City of San Diego Historical Landmark and a part of the 55-mile San Dieguito River Park that extends from Julian to the Pacific Ocean. Built in 1870, the Farmstead features one of the oldest structures in the county. It sits on a 5.7 acre parcel at the head of the Mule Hill Trail, and consists of an adobe and wood frame structure, originally constructed by Zenas and Eliza Sikes as a dwelling on their wheat farm of 2,400 acres. “The Sikes Adobe is representative of the growth of California which followed the Gold Rush and October | November 2011

statehood in 1850,” said Anne Cooper, Sikes Adobe Museum Manager. “The Farmstead is significant today because it is a rare example of a middle class pioneer farm family’s dwelling. As a historic site it also presents the opportunity to interpret the last quarter of the nineteenth century as it was experienced by that family’s members.” The process of historic research and restoration of the Farmstead began in 2002 (when it was owned by the City of San Diego Water Dept.), and the fully restored farmhouse opened to the public in January 2004. The San Dieguito River Park’s volunteer docents provided tours of the house on the weekends. Furnishings in the house were minimal at the time of the October 2007 Witch Creek Fire, which burned the meticulously restored house to the ground – except for the adobe walls. “In February 2008, the San Dieguito River Park purchased the Farmstead,” Cooper said. “With the help of Federal Emergency Management Administration funding – which 92064magazine.com


covered stabilization of the remaining adobe walls – and insurance…the house was restored and reconstructed a second time. A reopening celebration was held June 26, 2010.” Visitors enter a six-room late-Victorian farmhouse with period furnishings, complete with an exhibit room that includes the Sikes family history, artifacts recovered at the site, and information on the nearby town of Bernardo (which now is covered by Lake Hodges). “Docents are available for background history and to answer questions,” Cooper said. “Guests can open our stove, try out furniture in the sitting room, sit at a writing desk, try their hands at a wash board and wash tub, operate a sewing machine treadle, rock in a rocking chair, build a tower with blocks, view a short video on the restoration and post-fire reconstruction of the farmhouse, and more.” Other activities occurring at the Farmstead include the North San Diego Certified Farmers’ Market, which is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays; a Valentine’s Day Tea; a Spring Social, and other events. School groups are welcome, and workshops are conducted periodically on such things as beekeeping and candle-making. In addition to encouraging people to visit the historic Farmstead, Cooper indicated she seeks both financial support to expand the activities and continue the research and site investigation – and volunteers to continue the restoration and serve as site docents. The Sikes Adobe Historic Farmstead is open to visitors 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday (and by reservation for groups). More information is available at www.sdrp.org. To schedule a school outing, volunteer or make a donation, contact Cooper via email at anne@sdrp.org, or by phone at 760-432-8318 or 619-884-1170. ¢

pecializing in authentic dishes to suit any taste, Takhrai Thai offers an intriguing and varied menu, a soothing ambiance, and a warm, welcoming attitude. “We treat our customers as guests in our home with friendly service and delicious food,” said owner Nikki Bubpha. “And we try to expose our guests to Thai culture through our exquisite food and special events. For example, earlier this year, we featured Thai musicians and dancers performing at the restaurant. We also had a large display of our famous carved fruits (to resemble beautiful, colorful flowers).” Conveniently located in Poway at 12265 Scripps Poway Parkway #116-118, Takhrai Thai focuses on providing excellent service in an upscale – yet familyfriendly – atmosphere. “Our inspiration was to serve authentic Thai cuisine to the busy working people in the area, and make the restaurant a great destination for a “date night” any day of the week for the 92064 and surrounding communities,” said Nikki, noting that guests are greeted at the front door with decorations imported from her native Thailand. “The décor is traditional Thai, but with a modern feel. The fountains and music provide a soothing atmosphere to enjoy our delicious food.” Superb service begins with Nikki, a hands-on owner who actually cooks in the kitchen to ensure the food meets her high standards for taste and preparation. “Takhrai Thai offers an array of musttaste items – such as the Satay Chicken (grilled, marinated chicken breast tenders served with peanut sauce and cucumber dip); Crispy Calamari (fried Thai-style with sweet and spicy dipping sauce; Black Mussels (sautéed with garlic and basil curry sauce), and a wide variety of delicious soups,” she said. “In 48

addition, our Green Papaya salad, Yum Nuah (beef salad) and Yum Ta-Lay (chilled mixed seafood salad) are a few of our popular Thai salads.” Nikki specifically mentioned that Panang curry – a mild yet flavorful curry in coconut milk with bell peppers, carrots and topped with kaffir lime leaf, as the most popular curry dish at the restaurant; and the Phad Thai noodles, a dish that tickles diners’ tastes buds with thin flat rice noodles, stirfried with bean sprouts, eggs and topped with crushed peanuts. The extensive menu also includes a variety of unique beef and seafood entrees. Takhrai Thai – opened in 2005 – features a large wine list, a special children’s menu, and a selection of party trays for special events and affordable catering services, Nikki said. A busy mother of a 5-year-old daughter, Nikki holds a Masters degree in finance and worked as an assistant vice president for Goldman-Sachs and GE Capital in her native Thailand before moving to San Diego and starting her restaurant career 15 years ago (her first restaurant, Lai Thai, is a popular spot in National City). According to Nikki, though, her top priority is ensuring that all guests enjoy their visit to Takhrai Thai. “I want to ensure that everyone has an excellent, enjoyable dining experience,” she said. ¢ Takhrai Thai is located near the Scripps Poway business parks and the residential neighborhoods of Scripps Ranch, Poway and Sabre Springs at 12265 Scripps Poway Parkway #116-118.

F

or 25 years, North County Soccer Park has provided San Diego’s families and adults with a fun, recreational arena soccer facility operated by a dedicated staff. “North County Soccer Park has become an icon in the soccer community,” said NCSP Owner Dave Brennan. “People tell me all the time how much they enjoy playing here. When I tell people I am with NCSP, I often hear personal stories about how their children grew up on our fields. As of this year, we have over 18,000 children on record of having played with us.” Brennan said at times during the year, the facility has as many as 180 teams of adults and children playing every week. Besides the league games there are 340 students in our youth classes. NCSP offers three different kinds of soccer fields to play on, providing league play opportunities in all age groups – plus soccer and baseball classes for youths. And, according to Brennan, it is the only facility in San Diego County to offer Lil’ Kickers soccer and Lil’ Sluggers baseball classes. Lil’ Kickers is a national program and is recognized as America’s leader in introducing young children to the sport of soccer. Classes start for children as young as 18 months old and

facebook.com/92064magazine

continue up to 9 years old. The Lil’ Sluggers baseball classes are nearly identical in structure, but with the games and activities focused on throwing, batting, fielding and running the bases for children ages 2-6 years old. Brennan noted that NCSP is a privatelyowned facility, and not operated by a city or athletic department. “I feel that we have more class and league offerings, better service, and lower prices than any other sports facility in San Diego County,” he said. The North County Soccer Park’s primary customers are families in the communities of Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Penasquitos, Scripps Ranch, Escondido, and Ramona. “Within those families, we offer programs for young children as young as 18 months in the form of parent/child soccer and baseball classes. Toddlers through 9 year olds can still be in classes but with Mom and Dad on the sidelines taking pictures, enjoying a coffee and socializing with other parents,” Brennan said. “For 4-11 year old children, we have weekly 4v4 soccer leagues on the mini-field. For the 11-14 year olds, they can play in either a 3v3 format on the mini-field or a 6v6 one on the stadium field. There is even a dynamic 3v3 high school league for 15-17 year olds.” Brennan noted that adults come to NCSP for the fun and the competition. The soccer park offers men’s, women’s, and co-ed leagues six nights a week. There are adult beginner leagues where no score or standings are kept and competitive leagues with a championship game, October | November 2011

League Champs shirts given out, and a team picture taken for a wall plaque with a copy made for every player on the roster. Open seven days a week, NCSP has a busy concessions area, and a plasma TV with cable so patrons can watch soccer while waiting for the game to start. “We offer a clean environment with working and well-maintained equipment – as well as a trained, dynamic staff that wants to see you and your family every week,” Brennan said. NCSP also offers fun birthday parties for only $5 per child – and a popular, weekly youth soccer camp three times a year. And NCSP is a strong supporter of the United States military and their families. “Active military families are offered deep discounts in their registration fees. We thank them for their service! Also, the NCSP is a great place for military commands to bring in teams for competition and camaraderie,” Brennan noted. ¢ North County Soccer Park is located at 14530 Espola Road, Poway, CA 92064.

Puppy Love Dedicated Poway Volunteer Carries His Dog 5,800 miles… And Counting!

By JENNIFER SOUSA

D

oug Johnston cares for his dog, Murphy. He also carries his dog, Murphy. A lot. “I actually carry Murphy on my back in a fireman’s hold,” said Johnston, 53. “I began this over five years ago when I chose to prove to myself that I could carry Murphy to safety in the event of an injury during our many and frequent hikes.” Though Johnston planned only carrying the 8-year-old, 65-pound Labradoodle once, Murphy liked it so much that he immediately learned to feign weariness on outings to secure another ride. “So I began keeping a log of these free-rides and, so far, have carried Murphy on my back for more than 5,800 miles,” said Johnston, a Poway resident who works as a Solutions Consultant. “I could have carried him from Los Angeles to New York and half-way back across the country again. In fact, most people in Poway and surrounding areas are more familiar with Murphy being on my back so, when he is on the ground, they kiddingly come up to me to verify whether he is the same dog they normally see on my back.” Johnston and Murphy typically are sighted at Lake Poway (or other parks in the community), where they are members of the Reserve Park Rangers K9 Unit. “Over four years ago, Doug Smith, Senior Park Ranger, approached Murphy and me at Lake Poway,” said Johnston, a 14-year Poway resident originally from Canada. “He had known us for a short while as we crossed paths frequently during our regular hikes. He asked me if we would consider coming on board as a K9 Unit for the Reserve Park Rangers. It sounded like a perfect fit for us and so, we

joined the program, went through a grueling Park Ranger Academy.” In addition to their park responsibilities, the Johnston and Murphy also spend time as part of the Pet Therapy team at Scripps Memorial Hospital and the Naval Medical Center San Diego (in Balboa Park). “I am particularly inspired by the friendship and generosity extended to Murphy and me by our wounded warriors at NMCSD. As you all know or can imagine, our heroes have and continue to pay an incredible price for our country, our freedom and the future of so many others,” he said. “I can’t tell you how many times, when visiting our wounded service men and women – before I could extend my hand to say thank you for their service – they extended their’s to say thank you to Murphy and me. With all that we’ve seen over the years in our hospital visits, those moments are some of the most memorable.” Though Johnston indicated the pair have experienced many exciting and dangerous moments as part of their park responsibilities, he feels his biggest accomplishment is being available to people. “When we’re not purposefully enforcing rules and regulations, Murphy becomes a very approachable and memorable soul – which encourages many people to come over and talk to us,” he said. “We listen intently to their stories and difficulties they are facing in their lives. At the end of the day, if we can make even the smallest positive change in someone else’s life, that’s what I’ll carry with me forever.” According to Johnston, the end result is that he and Murphy have a great opportunity to give back to their community. “Many times, people just are going through hard times and just need someone to talk to,” he said. “We patrol regularly all over Poway for public health and safety and make family and the welfare of children our top priority.” But it’s not all work for Murphy. “Each day, he and I spend a few hours stalking and chasing rabbits and squirrels around some of our favorite places,” Johnston said. “I can remember one recent moment when Murphy stared at a squirrel for nearly an hour. I held that leash and remained motionless for the entire time, not wanting to spoil his special moment.” ¢

Wildfire Season Here Again by SUZY-BETH SARVER

What Residents Need to Know To Protect Property and Family

O

n a busy stretch of West Bernardo Drive amid the towering pine trees is a plaque that bears a simple message: “Thank you San Diego Fire Fighters 2007.” This is a daily reminder to many who travel this road on what was lost and how much was saved. Unless you were hiding under a rock in San Diego County, you remember exactly where you were on Oct. 21, 2007. It was a day that began like many other Sundays in San Diego County. But as the winds picked up a smell of burning timber permeated the air. A serious situation was unfolding in the East County, and it had a name — the Witch Creek Fire. “I remember we were out by the pool enjoying a beautiful Sunday afternoon and by 2 p.m. the ash started to fall,” recalled 4S Ranch resident Janice Karr. “By 9 p.m. that evening, it looked like a snowstorm outside with continual ash falling -- and in the wee hours of the night, less than 12 hours later – I was banging on doors and alerting residents to evacuate.” The Witch Creek Fire developed rapidly that Sunday night, and by Monday morning it had engulfed portions of North Poway and Rancho Bernardo as it jumped west through Lake Hodges and across I-15. A wall of fire headed toward the Westwood neighborhood and took little mercy as it raged through brush and surrounded homes in a matter of minutes. “One minute I was in bed sleeping, the next I was trying to get my wife and daughter into the car and find my keys,” recalled Frank Smith of Rancho Bernardo. “It happened so fast, I went to bed around 11 p.m. watching the story on the news; I never thought it would affect our neighborhood.” Families fled, some with little more than the clothes on their backs. Local streets soon became congested and other areas completely shut down. By Monday morning almost the entire I-15 and SR-56 Corridor had been evacuated. Qualcomm 54

opened up as a makeshift shelter. Thousands of residents were displaced. With such a back story, residents should consider a number of tips and suggestions on how to prepare for the threat of wildfire prepared by the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District, the Poway Fire Department, and the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (after all, October is Wild Fire Awareness Month): How to Prepare Your Home • Keep gutters, roofs and eaves free of any dead branches, leaves, pine needles or other debris.

• • • • • •

• Create 100 feet of defensible space surrounding your home. Plant fire-resistive trees and plants around the first 50 feet of the structure. • Keep all branches and any native vegetation at least 10 feet from rooftops, chimneys and outdoor barbecues. • Firewood should be kept at least 30 feet from any structure. • Thin out overgrown vegetation by at least 50 percent and all dead plant material should be removed. How to Prepare Your Family • Prepare an evacuation checklist. In the event of an evacuation, what items would October | November 2011

you need to take? Consider medications, important paperwork, cash, contact phone numbers, precious keepsakes, photos and any jewelry or other valuables. Have a family plan. If you have to evacuate and members of the family are not at home, where is the family to meet? Keep a full tank of gas for your vehicle. Have cash on hand. Listen to local radio reports on where to find shelter for yourself and your pets. Pack a first aid kit. Keep enough food and water for three days per person. Remember your pets. Bring their food, water, medication and supplies

How to Prepare for Your Safety • Wild fires are unpredictable. They can jump two homes or five homes. A wild fire can travel blocks at a time. • Do not wait until the last minute to evacuate. • Follow instructions given by your local police and fire department. • Have an alternative route planned in the event your plan is impassable. • If you are caught in a firestorm, do not panic; find a swimming pool or body of water and remain. ¢

Ambassador Troop Active in Community, Learning New Skills By LORI LUM

B

etsy Morris, the group leader of Poway’s Ambassador Girl Scout Troop 8269, has a unique perspective on scouting. “When people think about Girl Scouts, they think of those cute little Brownies out selling cookies,” Morris said. “And for many girls, that’s where scouting ends.” But the young women in Morris’ group are an exception. Currently, the troop members include one high school senior, 17 juniors, and three sophomores, spread out over four area high schools. Many people have only heard of the more common program levels such as Brownies and Juniors, but Troop 8269 is classified as Ambassador level because most of the girls are in 11th and 12th grades. The troop originally formed at Tierra Bonita Elementary with eight 1st graders. Since then, it has continued to grow. Six of the eight original members still participate, and new members are typically girls who have recently moved to the

facebook.com/92064magazine

area or those whose current troop is disbanding. Of course, being in high school means that the girls in this troop are very busy with their extracurricular activities and studies, but they still come together several times a month as scouts. The result is not only beneficial to the girls, but also to their community.

Perhaps the troop’s mission states it best. Their goal is, “to give back to our community, to learn how to live in our world, and have fun doing both.” This past year, they served dinner at Father Joe’s Villages, made holiday packages for the teens at San Pasqual Academy, participated in the 24-hour Relay for Life, and

October | November 2011

ran a dance for younger girls. They have also learned skills such as car care, CPR and first aid, and video production. In conjunction with their commitment to community service, some of the girls have chosen to pursue their Gold awards – the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. Right now, two members of the troop (Mary Beth Dato and Madeline Haff) are carrying out approved projects, and 12 more are in the process of developing their proposals. According to its members, one thing that makes the troop so special is its leadership – with scouts Rachel Prince and Dato speaking highly of Morris in this regard. “She organizes everything, comes up with brilliant, creative activities for us to experience, and encourages us to become better people along the way,” they said. For more information on the troop, contact Morris at 858-722-4784 or betsmorris@gmail.com. ¢

:::: REAL ESTATE WATCH

So What’s All the Fuss About Credit Scores? Originally, credit scores were developed using a mathematical model created by Fair Isaac Corporation in the 1960s – with many revisions, updates, and improvements since then. Today, the three major credit bureaus are Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Lenders use the credit scores received from these agencies to evaluate the risk associated with lending money to borrowers. Higher scores represent a lower risk, and result in better pricing on the loan for the borrower. These scores tell the lender the likelihood of the borrower defaulting on the loan within the next 12-24 months. The score is comprised of five factors: Payment history, amounts owed, length of credit history, types of credit used, and new credit (to include inquiries). The calculation on the score includes: ● 35 percent of the score is related to how borrowers pay their bills. A 30-day late is hugely detrimental to an individual’s score, as well as paying a collection that is more than two years old. ● 30 percent of the score is related to managing the debt. For example, consolidating all credit card balances to one card will lower the score, since balances should be kept at less than 50 percent of the card limit (and less than 30 percent of the limit for at least three months prior to applying for a home loan). ● 15 percent of the score is length of credit history. Closing unused cards or cards with higher rates decreases your score. ● 10 percent of the score involves the mix of credit. Having three-to-five credit facilities, with at least a two-year history is optimal to establish sufficient history – and a mix of types of credit cards also matters. ● And lastly, 10 percent of the score is new credit, to include inquiries. Whether inquiries are soft (such as an online inquiry personally handled to check credit) or hard (such as one conducted by a bank) can affect scores. Inquiries do lessen credit scores, and consumers should understand that pre-approved credit card offers are not really pre-approved. ¢
