Memories That Last a Lifetime

P U B L I S HE R

Derrick Breaux D IRE C TO R O F B U SINE S S DE V E LO PME NT

ost people hold the memories of a few precious life experiences close to their heart. These are the memories that you are excited to tell your close friends and family about. They can be trips that you’ve taken, academic accomplishments, or even sporting events. Regardless of the specifics, these events are often remembered as if they were yesterday. I certainly have a handful of special memories that I am always eager to talk about. My youngest daughter recently experienced something that very few 12-year-old kids get to experience. She and her fellow softball teammates from the 4S Ranch 12U All-Stars went on a 13-game winning streak and became the California State Champions in their division. I still get choked up mentioning that title. It was an amazing thing to watch. Looking back, I realized that I was the exact same age when my Little League team went to the Texas state tournament. Although we didn’t become state champs, 32 years later I still have very fond memories of my experience at the tournament and the journey getting there. In fact, I’ve told the story countless times – just ask my sweet wife who has had to listen to it more times than I care to admit. And that brings me to my point. As these girls made the last out to win the state championship game on that hot and sunny day in Lancaster, the pure joy and emotions that followed were amazing to watch and absorb. There were tears of joy, lots of hugs, and plenty of celebrating that took place on the field. It was at that very moment that the magnitude of my daughter’s life experience became a reality. It was quite an emotional feeling for my wife and me when we realized that our daughter had just experienced a lasting life moment that she will carry with her and talk about for decades to come. I wish there was a way that we could select which life experiences we hold onto and carry with us for the rest of our lives. It would make things so much simpler. However, one thing that I have realized is that these life experiences tend to pick us – and not the other way around. Some people refer to them as a gift, and I definitely agree with that analogy. I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to my sweet daughter and her talented teammates. I am very proud to be a part of your journey and life experiences. Your hard work, enthusiasm, and zest for life are a true blessing. Keep doing what you do!

or Dylan Soto, music, especially jazz, is his deepest love. “It is not an overstatement to say that I am obsessed with music and every single moment of every day, I have a tune in my heart and a melody on my mind. I spend virtually all of my time outside of school either thinking about music, reading about music, studying music, listening to music, or making music,” revealed Dylan. At the young age of 18, he has played music professionally for many years. He leads his own jazz sextet that performs throughout San Diego County (The Soto Six), holds positions in four other professional jazz ensembles, is a member of the jazz ensemble at Palomar College, and is a music therapist at Palomar Medical Center. “I’ve been honored to be a part of the professional jazz community in San Diego for so long and at such a young age. Words simply cannot describe the amount of love I possess for jazz music,” stated Dylan, who is inspired

by the talent, spirit, and selfexpression of jazz legend John Coltrane. AKES Dylan recently R F R NNIFE by JE graduated from Vista High School as a candidate for the full International Baccalaureate diploma and is headed to Columbia University in New York City this fall. While attending Vista High, Dylan participated in many service organizations including Best Buddies and the Environmental Club. Dylan is especially passionate about environmental issues and ensuring the health and survival of the planet for future generations. “When I took over as Environmental Club president my senior year, I wanted to grow the club and recruit driven, self-motivated, community service-minded kids. We grew the club’s membership and teamed up with other Vista High organizations to tackle beach clean-ups and participate in other events to protect and preserve the environment,” related Dylan. He and the other Environmental Club members also participated in community events at Alta Vista Botanical Gardens, providing fun and interactive crafts and activities for young children to learn about the environment and sustainability. As Dylan prepares to embark on his next adventure at Columbia University, he is excited to immerse himself in the Columbia and New York City vibe and is looking forward to being on a campus where jazz is considered one of the most important modern art forms. “It is my hope that I will find success as a musician while attending Columbia and living in New York,” said Dylan. He feels that his time at Vista High School truly prepared him for future success and credits his supportive teachers as one of the main reasons he is ready to take the next step in his life. And of course, his beloved jazz music has also prepared him for this moment. “I find it unfathomably beautiful that with jazz one can communicate and move audiences to tears without ever uttering a single word,” said this talented young musician. 

Vista Awarded Public Works Project of the Year The City of Vista has recently been recognized with the Public Works Project of the Year Award for the Buena Vista Creek Restoration Project, which was completed in Brengle Terrace Park last year and has created more recreational outdoor activities for the community. The San Diego and Imperial Counties Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) presented the award to city officials during their annual conference. The APWA Chapters recognized Vista for its good planning, design, and construction management techniques; staying within regulatory requirements; and keeping the project on schedule and on budget. Hikers can now walk further alongside the creek at the front of Brengle Terrace Park which links up with land owned by the Vista Conservancy, creating an uninterrupted trail running from the park to the City-owned Rancho Buena Vista Adobe. The restoration project was paid for with a $994,000 grant from California Natural Resources Agency’s Urban Greening Program, funded through Proposition 84, passed in 2006.

WCV and Blue Star Families Gather for Tea The Woman’s Club of Vista (WCV) hosted a Mother’s Day Tea to honor Blue Star Families – present and past military families.

The celebration was held at the Vista Historical Society Museum with a menu including a variety of teas, fruit scones, finger sandwiches, and delectable desserts. Vista Mayor Judy Ritter also joined in on the festivities. Karen Hinkson-Buck serenaded the guests with graceful harp music while families enjoyed using the selfie booth with Mad Hatter props to create a photo memory. With 23 enticing items, the raffle was an exciting way to honor and share treats with those in attendance. To learn more about WCV visit www.womansclubofvista.org.

uajome Regional Park is home to a unique educational destination. Spanning 55 acres of historical ranch and farmland, the Antique

Gas & Steam Engine Museum highlights technology primarily from 1849 through 1960. Exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on classes give community members the chance to learn about farming, metalsmithing, wagon repair, textiles, gas and steam engines, and so much more. We spoke with Museum Director Rod Groenewold to learn more.

with A & Q Museum Director Rod Groenewold WHAT IS THE HISTORY BEHIND THE ANTIQUE GAS & STEAM ENGINE MUSEUM (AGSEM)? WHEN WAS IT FIRST BUILT? The membership of our organization started as a branch of the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association in the late 1960s, a loose-knit antique equipment collector’s organization with branches all over the US. Just over 10 years later, our club partnered with the County of San Diego to establish a permanent museum at our current location at the South end of Guajome Regional Park. At the time the lease was negotiated, the Antique Gas &

C O V E R F E AT U R E Steam Engine Museum was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The County of San Diego has been a steadfast supporter from day one and an ongoing partner in our success. We truly appreciate the support of the Board of Supervisors, especially 5th District Supervisor Bill Horn and the Department of Parks and Recreation led by Brian Albright.

The museum preserves a timeline of invention fulfilling necessity so the ingenuity and pride of these achievements will not be forgotten by future generations.

WHAT IS AGSEM’S MISSION?

The mission of the museum is to collect and display examples of the mechanical ingenuity associated with American agriculture and industry. The museum offers educational and recreational opportunities to the public in displays, demonstrations, and programs designed to depict a timeline of invention fulfilling necessity. The museum preserves that timeline so the ingenuity and pride of these achievements will not be forgotten by future generations.

Southern California was predominantly rangeland and dryland crops like wheat, oats, or beans that do not require irrigation. According to the County Agriculture Department, we maintain the last parcel of wheat production in the County. In our nearly-40 years on this site, we have gone from bare ground to a fully developed facility with multiple exhibit buildings, restoration facilities, and outdoor camping and entertainment venues.

TELL US MORE ABOUT THE GROUNDS AND PROPERTY.

DOES AGSEM HAVE ANY SPECIFIC PROGRAMS OR ATTRACTIONS?

Our site was originally home to members of the Luiseño Indian tribe and was later part of Rancho Guajome, deeded to Cave Couts and his bride Isadora Bandini-Couts in the 1840s. The museum’s leasehold is 55 acres of what historically has been ranch and farmland. 100 years ago,

Think of us as a “Museum Mall.” Museums typically adopt a very narrow focus based on a specific time period, trade, etc. A tour of our grounds may lead you to think that we collect about anything that comes our way. Separate buildings or areas on the grounds highlight farming,

Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum At-A-Glance

NAME: DIRECTOR: metalsmithing, wheelwrights/wagon repair, horology (the science of measuring time), textile arts, model railroading, gas and steam engines, and homelife 100 years ago. However, spend a little time here and you’ll find the thread that ties it all together is an innate curiosity and wonder at the wisdom, skill, and ingenuity of our predecessors. Many of our nearly-2000 members are made up of engineers, skilled tradespeople, and artisans that are attracted to our model of maintaining a working collection. The bulk of our collections are mechanical and best maintained in operation. We have always believed that preserving the operating skill and knowledge relating to our artifacts is as important as the artifacts themselves. Every part of our collection is coupled with the opportunity for internship learning alongside skilled craftsmen on an informal basis or by enrolling in one of our skills-based class offerings in blacksmithing, weaving, and clock repair, or in our School of Times Past program for schoolage children. WHAT IS YOUR ROLE AT AGSEM? I have been director of the museum since 1992. In its simplest definition, my job is to bring options and opportunities to my organization. At their direction, I manage all finances and business operations. As the figurehead of our organization, I represent our interest to potential donors and business partners. Most importantly, I am responsible for the care

C O V E R F E AT U R E and preservation of our collection. Related to my position with the museum and recognizing our close partnership with County Parks, I am also a 5th District Representative on the County Parks Advisory Committee. WHAT ARE THE MOST CHALLENGING AND MOST REWARDING ASPECTS OF YOUR ROLE? Honestly, the most challenging and rewarding aspect of my duties is managing growth. Our business model that encourages and empowers volunteers to take on operational areas/aspects of our operations has enabled us to sustain continued growth. Some days I’m convinced that my job is akin to herding cats when we have classes, events, and construction projects running at the same time. As chaotic as that can be, when I look at other small to mid-size museums or historical agencies, I never cease to be amazed at the talent and dedication of our volunteers. In addition to having a “can-do” volunteer force, I feel truly blessed to manage an organization with a working board. My board of 12 is elected to serve by our membership. All of them were elected by going above and beyond in their areas of interest and are trusted to lead by their fellow volunteers. I mentioned earlier that one of my primary duties was to bring opportunities to our group. The board here has always welcomed new groups and ideas. Much of our growth and prosperity has come enticing other nonprofit organizations to join us. In recent years, several other nonprofit organizations have reorganized under our corporate umbrella, including Palomar Weavers Guild, Short Track N-scale model railroaders, and the West Coast Clock & Watch Museum formerly of Bellingham, WA. HOW IS AGSEM MAINTAINED AND FUNDED? A combination of working volunteers, location, and a site amenable to varied uses makes AGSEM very “untypical.” Most museums are funded at the whim of a patron or government agency. From its beginning as a club, our museum has worked hard to pay our own way. All of our operational funds are generated by the events and classes we offer throughout the year. Our volunteers act as docents and demonstrators during events, instructors, groundskeepers. and even provide all of our food service during events. Before I moved to California to take the position here, I managed a County museum in Nebraska. It

was challenging for me at first to transition from budgeting based on an annual stipend to running a museum as a business, but now I wouldn’t have it any other way. During my tenure here, our operating budget has grown tenfold, and our designated gifts and giving even more. Very few museums can claim that they truly pay their own way, and we take great pride in the fact that we have from the beginning. Of course we apply for and receive grants, corporate gifts, individual, and foundation funding. These

funds are dedicated to establishing new programs, collections acquisitions, facility improvements, or other one-time expenditures outside of normal operating expenses.

We operate with a very lean and focused staff compared to other museums. I manage day-to-day operations with the assistance of my Curator of Collections, Ashley Jaques, who joined us as a high school intern nearly 20 years ago. Marie Smith and Megan Tessicini are part-time employees who manage our educational programming and front desk operations. A major responsibility for all staff is facilitating and coordinating volunteer efforts, since they’re our primary work force.

students a real taste of what a school day in 1900 was like. Our most popular adult educational offering is blacksmithing. We offer classes and workshops from beginner to artisan level. Other popular offerings include weaving and clock repair. By joining a group here on the grounds you can attain a wealth of hands-on experience in cooking, gardening, farming, machine work, and mechanical skills. All of our volunteer groups are open to sharing their skills and making new friends. In addition to museum-sponsored events like our five annual antique consignment auctions, spring and fall farm shows and Fiber Arts Fiesta, several other groups partner with us to put on Vintage Marketplace events, Summergrass San Diego, and several gem and mineral shows. There’s something going on here nearly every weekend, check out our website for current event listings.

DOES AGSEM OFFER ANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR SCHOOL/ GROUP FIELD TRIPS OR OTHER LARGE EVENTS?

DOES AGSEM NEED VOLUNTEERS? HOW SHOULD THOSE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING GET INVOLVED?

We offer educational programming for all ages. Retired educator and former State of Nebraska Teacher of the Year Connie Morton is our School of Times Past (K-12 education program) schoolmarm. As Ms. Wimplewart, she gives

The more the merrier! We’re always looking for new talent and friends. I’m always amazed what our members have to offer. Our members include inventors, business entrepreneurs, master tradesmen, and skilled artisans. One of the favorite parts of my job is visiting with my volunteers to catch up on what they’re up too. In my rounds, I’ve visited with members who have developed lubricants used in the space program, maintain sub-zero systems used in university cryogenic experiments, are award-winning textile or metalsmithing artists, and skilled musicians from one of our two house bands. Many of our members are masterlevel tradesmen and restorers who have restored vehicles for prestigious collections like Jay Leno’s and the Nethercutt Museum. Historic clocks, engines, wagons, and other artifacts seen in other museums and historic sites in the region have been restored by our volunteers, free of charge. The diversity of knowledge and skill in our group is almost unimaginable.

HOW MANY STAFF MEMBERS WORK ON THE PROPERTY? CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THEIR ROLES?

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT ANY UPCOMING EVENTS? WHERE CAN READERS FIND OUT MORE, GET TICKETS, ETC.? The museum is open every day, and there are special events or activities scheduled nearly every weekend. For a full listing of events, classes, and scheduled activities go to our website at www.agsem.com. Our website also has many links to related interest groups, other museums, and resources for restorers and collectors. Advance tickets, class enrollment, and camping reservations can also be made online or by calling the office at 760-941-1791. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE? I’m always surprised to meet locals who know about us but have never been here. Many have seen our equipment in movies and on television, locally at the Del Mar fair, or over at the Carlsbad Flower Fields providing wagon rides. We are so much more than our name implies, come see us!  August | September 2018 • 92081 MAGAZINE.COM • 21

hen Terry Chamberlin retired from her career as an executive assistant for a local software company, she had a strong desire to continue working in one form or another. After supporting her daughter for a time in a hair salon venture, Terry decided to become an entrepreneur herself. “The concept of Gramma in a Box is actually the perfect marriage between my love for baking cookies, and my love of being a Gramma. I have created a monthly subscription box which is very cost-effective and allows parents or grandparents to have a fun activity every month,” explained Terry. She develops the concept for each month’s box – some months are centered on a holiday theme and others focus on themes such as sports and nature. Terry does all the baking and orders all of the supplies for each box. According to Terry, each box also includes detailed step-by-step instructions. The idea of Gramma in a Box came to Terry as she was making a care package for her grandchildren in Seattle. The package contained homemade cookies, along with frosting and sprinkles. Terry wanted her grandchildren to experience the joy of decorating the cookies themselves, and know that the cookies were baked with love. Terry pitched the idea of a subscription box containing cookies and activities to friends and family, and after receiving an overwhelming amount of positive feedback, Gramma in a Box was born. She now sends love from Gramma to children all over the U.S.! Terry hopes to expand her business to include birthday themed boxes, college student boxes, and more. In her spare time, Terry enjoys crafting, knitting, candy making, cake decorating, and baking. “I can’t sit quietly – I love to be busy! I even took a semester-long cake decorating class at Palomar College when my first grandchild was born so I could whip out Disney princess cakes for birthday parties,” exclaimed Terry. She is known for baking cakes for friends and family and enjoys the challenge of trying new things. Terry and her husband George, a well-known radio and television personality, are long-time San Diego residents, having lived in San Marcos since 1973 and Vista since 2005. They have two grown children, four grandchildren, and a dog. They love living on the golf course at Shadowridge and seeing plays during the summer months at Moonlight Amphitheatre. 

RBV Artists Bring Color to the Hallways

F

rom chalk pieces conveying political messages to colorful mandalas, the Rancho Buena Vista High School (RBV) art students covered the hallway floors with their creations to decorate the school as a yearly tradition to celebrate the end of the year and express themselves through their art and show their skills to the campus. Chalk day has been a tradition for over a decade to celebrate the arts as well as showcase the talents of the students. Students begin this eight-hour process by sketching out their artwork on the concrete floors as a base, later coloring it in and developing the art. Once the layout is complete, color is brought in to illuminate the school floors, and by mid-day, vibrant red flowers, twinkling eyes, and oceans begin surfacing for the entire campus to see. By the end of the school day, fluorescent creations are visible in the hallway. Senior at RBV and student in IB visual arts Teresa Anderson and her team created a piece of a woman with lavender hair, a

red necklace with gold hanging off of it, and a royal blue tiara. “We wanted to do something different instead of a regular mandala so we thought of a portrait. We looked for inspiration and altered different pieces to create our own girl incorporating all of our styles.” This a not only a great experience for the artists, but for the staff and students. Valerie Shoup, a sophomore at RBV, expressed “The chalk art shows people’s creativity, it’s very interesting to see what new things people come up with each year as the tradition progresses. It creates an interest in the arts as well.” To learn about the RBV visual arts program, visit rbv-vistausd-ca.schoolloop.com/visualarts. 

ON LAND AND IN

THE WATER Enjoy Everything Mission Bay Has to Offer This Summer by SAMANTHA EDWARDS

S

weet summertime in San Diego means sunshine, lazy beach days, and outdoor barbecues. With its 27 miles of shoreline, grassy parks, playgrounds, and breathtaking views, Mission Bay is perhaps the best place to congregate with friends and family this season. The area is known as the perfect spot for aquatic sports, so you can try your hand at everything from sailing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding to jet skiing, wake boarding, and kite surfing. The bay is also home to boat docks, sailboat and motorboat rentals, and sport fishing and whale watching launching facilities. Mission Bay has plenty to offer for those who prefer to stay on land. Walk, jog, roller skate, or bike along the meandering paths surrounding the bay before enjoying an afternoon picnic in the sun. Strike up a game of volleyball or beach tennis. Break out the barbecue for a sunset dinner or gather around a waterfront bonfire for marshmallow roasting. Be sure to arrive early to claim your spot – it can be busy during the summer months. Visitors with furry friends in tow can venture onto Fiesta Island, a large peninsula within the bay with even more recreation options, including an off-leash dog beach and calm waters for swimming. You’ll also be in close proximity to several local communities – Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, and Ocean Beach – each with their own attractions for continued fun. So whether you’re looking for an action-packed afternoon adventure or just a place to relax and refresh, Mission Bay has something for everyone to experience this summer! 
