:::: FROM THE PUBLISHER For many years, educators have expressed more and more concerns about young people’s reduced interest in reading. That’s why this month’s very interesting article on the huge increase in number of books and other materials circulated by the San Diego Public Library’s 4S Ranch Branch (see page 30) is so gratifying. A year ago, total circulation was up 10% (“circulation” measures the number of books and other items checked out). And officials indicate that this year’s circulation growth is significantly greater again. In fact, at this point, the local library – located at the 4S Commons Center – distributes about 30,000 books, DVDs, CDs and other materials each month, averaging 400-500 visitors a day. Those are huge numbers, big enough to make the 4S Ranch Branch library the ninth busiest among the county’s 33 facilities. But what’s special for us is the fact that it’s young people in our community who are leading the way in the surge in library popularity and use: More than half of all items checked out of the 4S Ranch Branch are in the juvenile book category. Congratulations to the local library staff for creating the right environment for this growth in reading by young people – and congratulations to our community’s youths (and their parents) for taking a big step toward personal fulfillment and professional success in the future. Well done!

:::: REAL ESTATE WATCH Jeff Ciccarella and Eric Olsen are mortgage professionals with General Mortgage Corporation located in Rancho Bernardo.

The Clock is Ticking... Extended and Expanded Tax Credit Expires 4/30/2010

Are you on the fence about buying a home? Huge tax credits are scheduled to expire in the next couple of months. Here are some important details that you should know: Tax Credit for First-Time Homebuyers: • have not owned a home in last 3 years • credit is 10% of purchase price • maximum credit available is $8,000 • maximum purchase price is $800,000 Tax Credit for Current Homeowners: • must currently own a home • must purchase a new home • credit is 10% of purchase price • maximum credit available is $6,500 • maximum purchase price is $800,000 What are the New Deadlines? • must be in contract by April 30, 2010 • must close escrow by June 30, 2010

Higher Income Limitations: • Single tax filers up to $125,000 income (partial credits are available for single incomes up to $145,000) • Joint tax filers up to $225,000 income (partial credits are available for joint incomes up to $245,000) What’s So Great About a “Tax Credit”? The benefit is that it’s dollar-for-dollar. Better still, the tax credit is refundable! For example, if a first-time homebuyer is eligible for a tax credit of $8,000 but is liable for $4,000 in income tax, she can still receive a check for the remaining $4,000! If you have any questions regarding the tax credit, pick up the phone and call us. We are here to help you take advantage of one of the greatest opportunities homebuyers may ever have.

ocated less than seven miles from 4S Ranch, Lake Poway Recreation Area boasts an amazing number of familyoriented activities and attractions. Visitors can rent boats and ride horses, enjoy a picnic or play volleyball. They can bike and hike, or fish and frolic in the ample park areas. And, of course, they can feed the ducks. Lake Poway certainly has something for everyone, and is certain to make for a memorable outing. In addition to plenty of trees, picnic tables and barbecue pits, Lake Poway also has two playgrounds, a horseshoe pit, an extensive trail system, and concessions available. And, of course, plenty of hungry ducks. It all began in 1969 when a $3.2 million bond issue was passed by voters in 10

92127 Magazine

the Poway Municipal Water District, creating funding for a dam and filtration plant in Warren Canyon (finished in late 1971). Then came a boat dock, a fishing pier, restrooms, concession facilities, boat ramps, parking lots and pavilions available for rent to the public. And, of course, the ducks soon arrived, anxiously awaiting a tasty treat. The lake is regularly stocked with rainbow trout and catfish. Motorboats, rowboats and paddleboats all are available for rent. Sailing is very popular, as is use of the archery range and the equestrian staging area. A number of classes and camps – and fishing derbies -- are available to all ages. And, of course, anyone and everyone can feed the ducks (and geese, and other March | April 2010

assorted birds). Food is available for purchase and dozens of waterfowl await the handouts. It’s perfect for that special photo opportunity with the kids. Lake Poway is located at 14644 Lake Poway Road in Poway. Parking fee is $5 for non-resident automobiles. The park areas are open sunrise to sunset from May to November, and 7 a.m. to sunset the rest of the year. More information is available by calling 858-668-4770. ¢ 92127magazine.com

Urbans Committed to Youth, Family

W

hether it’s working with a local teen outreach ministry or just giving their children a “special day” of their very own for no particular reason, the Urbans are committed to young people. Scott and Diane Urban moved to Bernardo Springs in 4S Ranch back in 2000. “We were in one of the first developments,” Diane Urban said. “There were no schools, parks, Starbucks or anything when we first moved here. We love the community and have watched it grow from roaming coyotes into an awesome place to raise a family.” The Urbans moved the family – which includes Ryan, 16, and Nicole, 14, both students at Del Norte High School – from San Joes to San Diego when Scott Urban accepted a job opportunity with a start-up company. He has since moved to Qualcomm as a Senior Systems Analyst. And Diane now works part-time as a consultant and designer 14

92127 Magazine

for House 2 Home Interiors. But the Urban’s passion is being involved with young people and expanding an outreach ministry for teens. “We first started an outreach group called ‘Wyldlife’ five years ago for Oak Valley Middle School. Kids can come for a great time of games, skits and a chance to get to know other kids from their school,” Diane said. “And kids are given a message about the Gospel and a glimpse into a relationship with God.” The group meets every other Monday night in rotating homes from 8-9 p.m., and more information is available by emailing urbbydog@yahoo.com. And the couple hopes to expand with a similar outreach program called “Young Life” for Del Norte High School. “The ultimate goal is to develop relationships that share a foundation in their relationship to God. These kids have

92127magazine.com


opportunities to go to summer camps, winter ski trips and activities like broom ball and rock climbing to name a few,” Diane said. “Currently, we are in need of leaders with a passion for high school kids and a relationship with Christ. We have a network of high school students and parents that are very interested and supportive of getting ‘Young Life’ at Del Norte.” The Urbans already are involved in a Bible study group for Del Norte High School students, currently meeting every other Sunday evening (information also available by emailing urbbydog@yahoo.com). Scott and Diane also like to travel, especially locally. “We have discovered that there is a lot to do in our backyard,” Diane said. “We love the Newport Coast, Huntington Beach and San Diego. And we love hanging out as a family and discovering the many things here in San Diego.”

We first started an outreach group called ‘Wyldlife’ five years ago for Oak Valley Middle School teens The family also enjoys “snuggling up every Monday after homework is done and watching the television show “24” together. Scott and Ryan Urban often golf together, and Ryan plans to play golf on the high school team. Nicole Urban has danced competitively at Danceology Performing Arts Center for five years, and is now involved in cheer and dance teams at the high school. And the Urbans have a unique, fun tradition that began when Ryan and Nicole were young: Celebrating a special day – a day that’s not a birthday – for no other reason than to just spoil and love their children with spontaneity. “It starts in the morning with a surprise breakfast in bed with a series of envelopes throughout the day that contain a surprise or clue for the next event. An example of a day is breakfast in bed with balloons and banners that are put out the night before by sneaking in their room while they are asleep; they wake up to the balloons and if it is not their birthday they know it is ‘their special day’,” Diane said, noting that the activities continued throughout the day, with snacks for the school class, after-school surprises, and movies or sleepovers. “A day of pampering as they became older is more of the theme today,” she said. “It has been a great tradition and we all have fun planning the day and surprising them all day long.” ¢ 92127magazine.com

Local Teacher Competes in Honor of Student

On March 27, 2010, Martin Reisert will compete in the ROHTO Ironman 70.3 California Triathlon. This is the kick-off event to the US Ironman season. Taking place in Oceanside and on neighboring military base Camp Pendleton, the Ironman 70.3 California features close to 1,800 athletes from around the world. They will be competing for 20 qualifying spots for the Ford Ironman Triathlon World Championship, 100 qualifying spots for the Foster Grant Ironman 70.3 World Championship as well as a $30,000 pro prize purse. The length of this course is a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride, and a 13.1-mile run, and just as he has done in the past, Reisert will dedicate this event to one of his former students, Tehya Foussat. Two years ago, Martin Reisert competed in his first full Ironman Triathlon. Under the sweltering heat of the Arizona summer sun, Reisert completed a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run in less than 14 hours. With a small group of family and friends to cheer him, he crossed the finish line, hand in hand, with his student, Tehya Foussat. Tehya, who lives with the medical challenges of Spina Bifida, left her wheelchair behind, and walked the last few 100 yards with her teacher to break the Ironman Finisher’s tape! Tehya Foussat was the 92127 Magazine’s “Student Star” profiled in the 2009 Premier Issue. You can find her story online at www.92127magazine.com (search for Tehya). - special thanks to Mr. Reisert for submitting this information

The boys from 4S Ranch are: Jason Slavin #1 (first row, 1st from left) Brendan Davey #50 (first row, 2nd from left) Justin Campos #51 (first row, 5th from left)

Dear 92127 Magazine, Three local 4S Ranch baseball players won their first tournament of the year on January 31. Jason Slavin, Brendan Davey, and Justin Campos, all third graders at Stone Ranch Elementary School, play for the 9U Longhorns. The San Diego Longhorns are an elite youth baseball non-profit organization. They played in an AAU National Qualifier tournament over the weekend of January 30th and 31st. The team played hard and competed with local travel teams in the San Diego area and were able to get to the Championship game with good pitching, fielding, and hitting. The team won 6-1 in Sunday’s Championship game against a very good Chula Vista Turbos team. The win qualified the 9U Longhorns for the National AAU World Series Tournament in Orlando Florida this summer. They will be traveling to Tempe, Arizona for another Tournament in March to compete against over 60 teams from around the country. Good luck ‘Horns! Photo (on left) was taken by Lisa Davey. Thank you, Brian Slavin

A graduate from a San Francisco Beauty College, Claude is also Hair Extension Certified. She and her husband Tony (of more than 17 years) have four children, John-Paul (16), Christina (15), Angelina (13), and Mitchell (10), all attending local schools. Tony Azar works at Northrop Grumman as a Senior Avionic Systems Software Engineer (and is also a very talented pianist). While others may be cautious about opening a new business in the current economic climate, the owner of Salon De Claude feels the timing is right for launching her new venture. “I patiently searched for six months for the perfect location,” Claude said. “I have always dreamed of being successful in the beauty industry. Opening my own salon business gives me the freedom and creativity of being my own boss and the luxury of designing the type of salon I have always dreamed of and desired.” Claude indicated she wants to consistently provide the best customer satisfaction possible by rendering excellent service, quality products and an enjoyable atmosphere. “Opening my own salon empowers me to maintain a friendly, fair and creative work environment, which respects diversity, ideas and hard work,” she said. “I truly want our clients to be our friends and feel at home when visiting Salon De Claude.” The salon’s owner said she really enjoys working with clients and making them comfortable. Not only does she ensure a pleasant environment, but she takes the time to listen to the

challenges people have with their hair – and strives to provide answers for them in the form of styling tips, a good haircut, and products to use at home. “It’s very important that we provide services and products that boost a person’s self-confidence, and enhances both their physical appearance and mental outlook,” Claude said. The motto at Salon De Claude, which boasts 12 highly experienced staff members, is “Looking Gorgeous Begins Here!” – and Claude is quite serious about ensuring those results for clients. “We stay current on our techniques and styles by attending advanced training classes several times a year,” she said. “And we pick up new tricks and techniques from just watching each other.” “We strive to provide an environment conducive to giving relaxing and professional service,” Claude said. “We provide our clients with a wide range of services in one setting, and offer extended business hours – and, of course, always extend superior personal service.” ¢

t’s all about the smiles on the youthful faces. And watching the young clients’ enjoyment of playing baseball or softball increase. “Our gratification comes from watching all the participants get really excited about being at the facility,” said Ron Witmeyer, co-owner of Frozen Ropes, located in 4S Ranch at 10710 Thornmint Road. “And it is really special to see the kids improving in all aspects of the game.” Frozen Ropes, a franchise with more than 30 operations in the U.S., opened its San Diego location in 2008 and provides baseball and softball players in the area with a state of the art facility to practice and train – and features the highest level of professional instruction. “Players of any age and ability level can improve their performance,” Witmeyer said. “We are here to get them better and promote their enjoyment of the game.” Born and raised in New York, Witmeyer moved to California to attend Stanford University on a baseball scholarship, achieving his degree and then securing a Masters in Health and Physical Education at St. Mary’s College. In addition to playing on two NCAA Championship teams at Stanford, he was in

professional baseball for six years, including time in the Major Leagues with the Oakland A’s. He also spent time as a hitting coach at both Stanford and the University of California. Frozen Ropes has programs designed for all ages, ranging from the “Born to Play” for 3-4 year-olds to advanced training for high school and college athletes. “All of our training programs are hugely popular due to the level of training, quality of our staff (both as coaches, and the way they interact with the players), and the personal attention each player receives,” Witmeyer said. “We consider each of our players to be a part of the Frozen Ropes family and take our jobs seriously to give each of them a great experience while helping them grow as athletes and people.” Witmeyer, who owns the spacious, attractive indoor facility with partner Joe McAtee, said Frozen Ropes is unique in San Diego because it is a true training center – not just a  batting  cage. “Over 80 percent of our  business is  instruction and training,” he said.

Players of any age and ability level can improve their performance. We are here to get them better... Crediting the excellent staff he and McAtee have put in place, Witmeyer praises the level of instruction available at Frozen Ropes. McAtee brings many years of baseball and teaching experience to the operation, including time as a professional pitcher in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization. Eric Andrews, di22

rector of pitching, has coached travel baseball for 10 years and is an associate scout for the Baltimore Orioles. Tracy Sanders was a 10-year professional baseball player in several MLB organizations. And Ryan Martin is a former CIF-champion baseball player and award-winning collegiate player. Witmeyer – who lives in Rancho Santa Fe with his wife Marianne and their three sons (Luke, 12; Clay, 10; and Tommy, 6) – also feels what Frozen Ropes offers is important for the development of today’s young people. “There are so many entertainment options for kids these days,” he said. “We want them to get away from the video games, to stay active, and to enjoy their participation in youth sports.” Which is why Frozen Ropes has several unique offerings for young people – such as “Spring Break Camps”, which are scheduled for April 5-9; and the extremely popular birthday parties, which include an hour of baseball/softball-related games in the turf area and a one-hour party in the “Clubhouse” for pizza, cake and presents. And that brings Witmeyer back to seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces and helping young people enjoy the game. “We are striving to be a valuable asset to the community and have conducted dozens of free clinics for area Little Leagues in an attempt to improve the overall level of play,” he said. “Though many of the area’s best players train here, we take great pride in helping players of any ability level get the most out of themselves and help them to enjoy playing the game more as they see their progress.” ¢

Oak Valley 8th Grader works to Send Shoes to Haiti

Parents: Jeff and Stephanie Gearhart

A

lthough many tragedies seem far away and not related to everyday life, the tragic earthquake that hit Haiti recently had a profound effect on 14-year-old Rachel Gearhart, a student at Oak Valley Middle School in 4S Ranch. So profound, in fact, that she led an effort to collect about 700 pairs of shoes from neighbors, friends, school friends and faculty, and other in the community – a coordinated campaign with “Soles 4 Souls”, a worldwide charity organization dedicated providing footwear to those in need due to tragedy or poverty. “I decided to do the “Soles 4 Souls” campaign because I saw the devastation in Haiti on television,” Gearhart, who has lived in Rancho Bernardo for 12 years, said. “I heard about the shoe collection from my Mom’s friend and decided to have a shoe drive.” The shoe drive was conducted from Jan. 16 to 24

Jan. 29. “The best part of the ‘Soles 4 Souls’ effort was seeing all the shoes and imagining all the kids faces when they receive them,” she said. “I didn’t like the idea of people running around barefoot with debris everywhere.” This is not the first time Gearhart – an eighthgrader who hopes to become a marine biologist -has helped out in times of distress around the world. She previously was involved in the “Koins for Katrina” after the huge hurricane hit New Orleans several years ago and the “Pennies for Pakistan” effort, a coin collection for victims of an earthquake that hit that country in 2005. Gearhart – who has lived in Rancho Bernardo for 12 years – is the daughter of Jeff and Stephanie Gearhart. She has a 19-year-old brother attending UC Santa Barbara. When not engaged in humanitarian projects, she enjoys volleyball and soccer, playing on the La Jolla Impact competitive team. ¢ 92127magazine.com

7 Tips for a Safer Home

ecent news about recalled window coverings has many homeowners assessing their window treatments. “While nothing can replace the careful watch of a loving parent or caregiver, we encourage parents of infants and toddlers to opt for cordless or motorized treatments to eliminate the hazards posed by dangling window cords,” said Linda Allen, owner of Budget Blinds serving Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs, and Rancho Penasquitos. Corded window treatments can pose entanglement and strangulation hazards to small children and pets. Budget Blinds encourages new parents to replace window treatments featuring looped cords or treatments manufactured before 2001 with cordless or motorized options to minimize hazards. “Window treatments manufactured after 2001 have updated safety features like breakaway tassels and inner cord stops,” said Linda Allen. Recently, Budget Blinds introduced a new continuous cord tensioner on its Signature Series® cellular shades, pleated shades and Roman shades. Signature Series by Budget Blinds® is the company’s private label line and is available exclusively through Budget Blinds. “The new tensioner on our Signature Series® shades must be installed properly if the window shade is to operate,” said Linda Allen. “If the cords aren’t secured in the tensioner, the shade won’t work.” ¢ 92127magazine.com

1. Keep all cords out of reach from small children and pets. 2. Replace window treatments purchased before 2001. 3. If you move to a new home, consult a professional to make sure that the window treatments have safety features. 4. Secure all pull cords out of reach by using a permanent cord cleat. 5. Retrofit kits are available to enhance the safety of looped pull cord window treatments. 6. Place cribs and other low-standing furniture away from windows. 7. Install window guards. Don’t rely on screens designed to keep bugs out to keep children and pets in.

Linda Allen is the owner of Budget Blinds serving Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs, and Rancho Penasquitos.

“Traditionally, in tough economic times, public libraries experience an upswing in use,” Los Angeles Public Library spokesman Peter Persic to the Los Angeles Times recently. The LA facility has seen a 10% overall increase in items checked out in the most recent annual statistics. The increase at the 4S Ranch Branch Library is similar, with 2008-2009 total circulation at nearly 270,000 items – up from just over 240,000 items during the previous 12-month period. And there are indications that current visitor counts and circulation numbers are even higher. “4S Branch Library circulates about 30,000 items (books, DVDs, and other materials) each month (at this point), said Assistant 4S Ranch Branch Manager Irma Pena. “And we average 400-500 visitors a day to the facility currently”.

The 4S Ranch Branch Library sees a similar increase in the demand for such services. “We have nine computer terminals, with free Internet connection” at the library, Pena said. “And for unemployed individuals – and students doing homework – we offer up to 10 printouts at no charge. We’ve definitely seen an increase in use of the work stations.” “Whenever you have tough economic times, public libraries are a place people go because they have no other alternatives or because they know they are going to get the kind of powerful information that will make a difference in their lives,” said Kristin McDonough, director of the Science, Industry and Business Library in New York City. But Zhou and her 4S Ranch Branch Library staff are quick to point out that the increase in visitors to the local facility is also due to a firm philosophy of serving the community. “We are a special place, because of the variety of programs we offer each month – especially for the youth,” Zhou said. “Our parents are very involved, and the youth programs are some of the most popular of the more than 40 or so programs we provide visitors each month.” In fact, juvenile books are among the most popular to check out by the library’s visitors, amounting to more than 54% of the total materials circulated. Pena indicated that the wide range

of programs is key to visitors becoming involved in the library. “The library has about 40 programs each month, ranging from six regular weekly “English as a Second Language” sessions to “U.S. Citizenship” classes” – and, of course, we have a variety of youth-oriented programs.” Zhou added that the environment at the local library is also conducive to visitors returning. “We have a happy staff,” she said. “And we really make people feel welcome. We know a lot of our visitors by name.” ¢
