:::: FROM THE PUBLISHER

Vol. 2, No. 4 TM

We love this time of year around my house, late spring turning into summer. Of course, the three kids are excited – it’s almost time for school to get out for several weeks. But they also look forward to boating in the bay, trips to the beach, backyard cookouts, playing with friends until dark, and many other family activities. I admit to joining in the excitement. A certain freedom of thought is evident during the summer – a time to think about day trips, the future vacation, and the next interesting recipe to put on the grill. With summer fantasies dancing in our staff’s heads, we are pleased to offer 92127 Magazine readers in this issue a sneak peek at summer in the various communities in 92127. Beginning on page 42, we reveal comments on how four families in 4S Ranch prepare for the daunting task of planning how to keep their children busy and occupied without school in session (and offer even more information from them on how they cope with summer at www.92127Magazine.com). In addition: • We feature a question-and-answer session with key individuals involved with the 4S Ranch Master Association about planned events and activities this summer. • Many youths in 92127 offer their thoughts on what they like best about summer. • A special guide to summer camps and activities in the 92127 area is available in an easy-to-read format (with additional listings available at www.92127Magazine.com).

:::: FACES IN THE CROWD

4S Resident Roppé’s ‘Watershed Moment’ Changes Her Path by LORI LUM

Special to 92127 Magazine

E

ver since she was very little, Laura Roppé has been a performer. From her family’s living room to high school and college, she took every opportunity she found to be on stage. But suddenly, after college she decided to go to law school. She became a wife and a mother of two – and a successful lawyer. Her path had changed. But then, in 2006, she decided to run a marathon, and it became what Roppé describes as a “watershed moment”. She had accomplished a seemingly impossible task with hard work and determination, and she wondered what else she might accomplish if she only put forth the effort. “The answer was very clear: sing,” she said. “I wanted to sing.” She joined a cover band and was having the time of her life when inspiration struck again during her second marathon. She felt a melody form to the rhythm ~Laura Roppé of her pounding feet and by the

‘I’ve lived in San Diego my whole life, and I love this town. But I feel the luckiest of all to live in 4S Ranch. My husband and I are so blessed to live and raise our kids in 4S Ranch. It’s a true community.’

Laura Roppé Name: Age: Residence: Occupation: Hobbies:

time her run was complete, so was a song. When she got home from the run, she asked her husband, Brad: “Is this a real song, or did I just make this up?” He listened and said, “I think you just made that up.” That’s when she realized she was not only a singer…but also a songwriter. In 2008, she recorded her first album, “Girl Like This”. Within a couple weeks, the local radio morning program “Jeff & Jer” played one of her songs (“Float Away”) on their show and also asked her to perform at their annual listener party. Shortly after, a London-based label contacted her and said they wanted to distribute the album overseas. Roppé jumped at the chance, but as she was getting ready to leave for England to shoot a music video she made a major discovery. A lump in her breast turned out to be a rare form of breast cancer. Her big break would have to wait. It was a tough road, but Roppé said something came from the experience. “All throughout chemo and radiation, and in the months right afterward, songs kept pouring into my head: songs about love, hope, perseverance, and strength,” she said. In 2009, when her treatments were complete, she won Song of the Year 14

at the Los Angeles Music Awards (for “Float Away”), and she finally made it to England to film that music video. Later, in 2010, she recorded those songs that had come to her during her battle, and in early 2011 she released her second album, entitled “I’m Still Here”, to rave reviews. When asked what advice she would give to aspiring artists, she replied from the perspective of a woman who has seen and been through a lot. “You have to work harder, longer, and more passionately than everyone else,” she said. “You have to believe in yourself, even if no one else does, and more than anyone else. And, last but certainly not least, recognize the love and kindness you receive from others, give it back, and show your gratitude in word and deed. Success is not worth having if you have stepped on or hurt others to achieve it.” Hers is a story of creativity, and transformation, one that she continues to craft and share passionately with the world. ¢ More information and music is available by visiting www.lauraroppe.com and www.facebook.com/lauraroppe.

BI G Maranatha’s Award-Winning Junior Soccer Player Dreams

Special to 92127 Magazine

Luke

Kadillak of 4S Ranch is a young man who is not afraid to dream big. A junior at Maranatha Christian High School, he has his hopes set on playing both college and professional soccer -- and from the sound of it, he is well on his way. This year, Kadillak was nationally recognized for scoring an impressive 48 goals in winter league, the most for any player during the season. He also was named Frontier League’s most valuable player, featured in the North County Times as player of the week, and made the all-league and all-academic teams. A team player both on the field and off, Kadillak has always shown dedication to his school since he began at Maranatha as a freshman. During his first year, the faculty and staff presented him with the Barnabas Award, which is given to a single student who demonstrates some or all of the qualities (such as dedication, innovation and servant-leadership) exemplified in the life of Barnabas, one of the earliest Christian disciples. It sometimes surprises people that Kadillak was homeschooled until his freshman year, but with his kind personality and easy-going 16

nature it is easy to see how he could make the transition so seamlessly. He enjoys the atmosphere of his private high school and said it helps students to develop close friendships. Also, he said the smaller classroom setting allows for more one-on-one time with the school’s highly qualified teachers. Kadillak especially enjoys speech and debate class. “I find it very applicable to almost every other class I have,” he said. “And let’s face it, I’m a teenager and I like to argue.” Another of his favorite classes is AP Language because it allows for self-expression in writing. Kadillak attributes his success to God, and the support of his parents (Marty and Angela Kadillak), friends and coaches. “I know that without His support I would not be the person I am today,” he said. “My parents inspire me to strive both academically and athletically and have been behind me with their support 100 percent of the way.” Kadillak has two younger sisters: Lea, 15 and Jacklyn, 14. A 4S Ranch resident for eight years, he loves his community for many different reasons, including the closeknit feeling of the community, the parks and shopping centers in close proximity to his home. This summer will find Luke playing ice hockey (his favorite sport after soccer) and considering where he wants to go to college. ¢

More than 1,400 Celebrate Opening of New Del Sur Parks, Neighborhoods

M

ore than 1,400 people visited Del Sur during a recent March weekend to celebrate the grand opening of three new neighborhoods and two new parks at the San Diego master-planned community off Camino Del Sur, just north of state Highway 56. Nine new model homes are now open featuring more expansive floor plans, larger backyards and the new “Del Sur room.” “The debut of the Del Sur room was a highlight of the weekend events, with home shoppers really connecting with the concept of expanded indoor/outdoor living space,” said Bill Ostrem, president and CEO of Black Mountain Ranch,

developer of Del Sur. Showcased in all three new Del Sur neighborhoods, the Del Sur room is a covered extension of the home. With one to three sides enclosed, the room provides the best of both indoor and outdoor living. The added square footage is ideal for casual living and entertaining within the coastally cooled La Jolla Valley.

One grand opening day visitor said he appreciated that the Del Sur room is built in and not something a homeowner would need to add in order to enjoy its benefits. Offering protection from the sun or rain, the Del Sur room allows homeowners the option of more time outdoors. With prices expected to start from

find time for crafting and making hand-made gifts, as well. So how do they do it? What is the day-to-day reality of having such a large family? To start, there are five boys and six girls ranging in age from 3 to 17. The children attend four different schools, and mom visits each one twice per day (in the family’s 15-passenger van) for drop-off and pick-up. The family can consume 12-14 gallons of milk, five-dozen eggs, and 8-10 loaves of bread per week. Of course, they also generate lots of loads of dirty laundry! Although they have live-in help, the family is big on chores. All the kids contribute to keeping the house clean and well organized. The older siblings are wonderful homework helpers for the younger children and also take on greater responsibilities such as doing their own laundry. One special time of year for the Rubin family is the holidays. They have made it a tradition to spend every Thanksgiving at the Disneyland Hotel’s Family Thanksgiving Feast, and although Charina and Paul say Christmas is their busiest time of year, it is always fun and memorable. The family stays busy year ‘round with sports, music, and school events, but incredibly, they keep everything in perspective. “Managing our busy lives, to stay close to what is most important (which is the physical and emotional well-being of our family) has always been our goal as parents,” said Charina. “Our family is unique. We are a blended family but our children treat each other like they are real brothers and sisters.” ¢ Know a family that should be profiled in 92127 Magazine?

Unique Big Sister/Little Sister Program An Important Part of Dance Experience

I

t’s called the Big Sister/Little Sister Program, and it’s an important part of the Performance Company’s Mission at Danceology Performing Arts Campus in 4S Ranch because it connects younger dancers to their older peers – creating a sense of camaraderie and friendship between age groups. “Danceology prides itself in maintaining a close-knit, family-like performance company, wanting every single dancer to feel special and a part of the team,” said Hayley Elwood, a member of the staff at DPC. Dancers are paired up at random at the beginning of the dance year and keep their siblings through the end of the session. They are encouraged to cheer each other on at competitions and support one another throughout the year. Emma York and Alexa Huey are just one example of how the program works. York, a 2nd grader at Monterey Ridge Elementary School in 4S Ranch, began taking dance classes just before her fifth birthday and has had the opportunity to compete at several

dance competitions and has earned many awards over the last three years. Earlier this year, she took her solo to the Youth America Grand Prix, a prestigious ballet competition in Los Angeles – and, as the youngest competitor in attendance, she placed in the top 10. Kayla Kalbfleisch, York’s solo teacher and an award winning dancer/choreographer said York truly dances with her heart. “Emma has qualities of dance you just can’t teach: Spirit, heart, and emotion. These are rare to find in a dancer at such a young age,” she said. In the Big Sister/Little Sister Program, York is paired with Huey, a senior at Mt. Carmel High School who took her first dance class when she was five years old. Now 17, Huey is an elite dancer for Danceology and feels the dance studio has become her second home. “My mom took me to my first dance class” she said. “I was shy when I was younger; my mom figured dance might help me come out of my shell.” “Alexa’s heart and soul is with dance,” said Kayla Kalbfleisch, who also teaches Huey. “She strives for excellence and this shows in her skill and performance. She has that special something that makes people want to watch her.” Huey is also a four year member of the Mt. Carmel Dance Troupe. This year she was elected captain by her fellow team members. She has won numerous dance awards and scholarships from many competitions and conventions. She was awarded 2010 West Coast Elite Dancer of the year and became a part of the prestigious 2011 West Coast Dance Explosion Elite Program. After graduation, she plans to continue dancing at the University of Arizona. ¢

Both organizations opened play with big events, guest speakers and good crowds of parents, volunteers, coaches, community supporters, guests – and, of course, players eager to get the season under way. 4S Ranch Little League’s Opening Day ceremonies in March featured hundreds of people applauding and screaming support, Miss California singing the National Anthem, and a former Major League Baseball player throwing out the first pitch. “I’ve been to a lot of opening days in my career,” said Dave Stewart, 17-year MLB veteran. “And this is unbelievable, one of best Little League opening day’s I’ve ever seen.” Stewart, whose baseball career included stints with the Athletics, Dodgers, Rangers, Blue Jays and Phillies, was the

More than 225 attended the March event at the Del Sur Ranch House. The Platinum LEED-rated building was transformed into Casino Del Sur, featuring gaming, entertainment and a live and silent auction. “As parents and community members, we’re thrilled to help support Del Sur Elementary’s needs, especially with an event that is so much fun to attend,” said event chair Pete Kunowski. “Last year’s inaugural event raised $21,000 in one night, and this year we more than doubled that.” Proceeds from Casino Night will go toward technology upgrades, science, art, music programs and other support at Del Sur Elementary School, Kunowski said. A highlight of the event this year was the “Date With a Teacher” auction, where student-teacher excursions like surfing and Padres game tickets went to the highest bidder. As a new fundraising tactic, each Del Sur Elementary classroom contributed an auction item crafted by students. Also new

this year was the “fund a need” auction, in which money was donated directly to the school. Tickets started at $35, with options to buy advanced ticket packages, reserve gaming tables, and more.

Sponsored by Del Sur homebuilder California West Communities and run by the school’s Extended Student Services staff, more than 105 children were entertained while parents attended the event.

Firefighters Raise Funds for Burn Victims

Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District firefighters took to the streets again this year to help raise money for burn survivors. The annual Burn Institute Boot Drive, which raises money to fund burn survivor support services such as Camp Beyond the Scars, was held April 6 when firefighters were at major intersections throughout the district – including 4S Ranch. During the morning and afternoon commute, the firefighters collected monetary donations of any amount in empty fire boots from passersby. “We look forward to this event every year,” said Engineer Tim Wood, who coordinated RSFFPD’s efforts this year. “It’s a great chance for us to interact with members of the community and raise funds for a very important cause. It also creates a friendly competition among participating fire agencies to see who can raise the most money.” The Burn Institute is a non-profit agency dedicated to burn prevention and support for burn injury survivors and their families.

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 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. 40

‘North County Soccer Park has become an icon in the soccer community.’

A Little History... The North County Soccer Park is a recreational place for kids and adults of all ages and abilities to play soccer. There are two arenas that provide indoor soccer in an outdoor facility. We have topof-the-line astro-turf for you to play on. The stadium field is the largest indoor soccer arena in

San Diego County and has the new kind of turf technologyField Turf so players can wear their soccer cleats. The smaller mini-field is fun and innovative and has brand new traditional turf so players can wear their rubber sole indoor or “tennis” shoes. There is also a large grass

field with soccer goals for practice and free play. We have an indoor area for you to come in and hang out after the game, with a full concessions stand, and an office where you can come and talk to us about any questions or comments that you may have. There is always a manager on staff to help you. In February of 1986, Tom Schwartz and Mark Bentley opened the North County Soccer Park with 85 teams. In September 2000, Dave Brennan and his wife, Lynne, bought the North County Soccer Park and have been spending almost all their time making it the best place to play soccer in San Diego County.

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.

Keeping the Kids Occupied Means Sun, Sand, Swimming. . . and Stress

ummertime in 92127 means a lot of sunshine, sandy beaches, swimming in the pool, and fun events. For some, though, it can also mean stress – from finding child care, to providing transportation to various activities, to just figuring out how to keep older children busy and occupied during the break from the regular school routine. Certainly choices abound to meet those challenges, but that doesn’t necessarily reduce the worry and anxiety. “We have probably the same obstacle all working families face (in

the summer) – we need more time. We would love to have more time to just explore San Diego and spend outside with the kids,” said Lynn Herrick of 4S Ranch. She and husband Michael both work and are the parents of three children under age 10. “The other difficulty is that most local camps end by 3:30 p.m. and, unfortunately, our work day is a little longer,” she said. “Michael and I take turns dropping off and picking up and I actually joke at Hughes Family Profile

That includes 4S Ranch residents Noel and Robert Moser, who both work and have four children under age eight, including a 14-month old. “We are very fortunate to live in an area that is so kid-friendly. There are so many things to choose from, and only 10 weeks to pack it all in. Being organized and planning ahead helps,” Noel Moser said. “Summer plans take time to finalize. I start by collecting information about summer camps the children would enjoy – and we look at them as a family.” At this point, Moser said it starts to get a little crazy. “We use a spreadsheet that is color coded for each different child, for each different camp,” she said. “We start getting them excited about the camps, so they can invite friends to join the camps with them.

revolve around some type of sport,” said Tony Quatararo, who works while Stacie is a stay-at-home mother. “But, for us, the best part of summer actually is not sticking to a routine schedule.

From Outreach, Local Events and Programs, and Support, the Goal is…

Creating A Great Neighborhood

A

s another summer is about to begin in 4S Ranch and other communities in 92127, residents’ thoughts turn to long, lazy summer afternoons, outdoor activities, unique events and family fun. Whether it’s in High Country West, 4S Ranch, Del Sur or other planned developments, the local homeowners’ associations play a major role in developing and managing much of the lifestyle amenities that local residents have come to love. In this issue, 92127 Magazine takes a closer look at the 4S Ranch Master Association, providing new and long-time residents a peek into the history and workings of the organization. Located in the scenic hills of North San Diego County, the 1700-acre community of 4S Ranch sits on the original 3,600 acres purchased in 1938 by the Ralphs family – and features homes with varied architecture, authentic details, engaging facades and front porches. Quiet tree-lined neighborhoods with walk able promenades are clustered around 4S Commons, the town center. One of California’s finest traditional communities, 4S Ranch has led the way in creating a new sense of luxury, forging a sea change in great residential design, and refining the ways in which houses of diverse architectural style go together. The 4S Ranch community features single-family homes and multi-family developments created by more than a dozen different homebuilders offering an array of exterior styles, square footages, and floor plans, under the auspices of Master Developer Newland Communities in partnership with the Ralphs family. According to Cynthia Van Cleave, CEO of the 4S Ranch Master Association, the local entity is dedicated to the development of the whole community as a vital contributor to the social and cultural fabric of the region, through community outreach, participation in local programs, and support of efforts by its residents to make 4S Ranch a great neighborhood. Van Cleave – who has managed the Master Association for 10 years with The Prescott Companies management firm – provided answers to questions about the organization, with assistance from Rebecca Soto and Laura Hurst Brown. A special thanks also goes to Ms. Linda Ralphs Kaeser – whose family was largely responsible for the 4S Ranch community as it exists today – for providing background and historical information and photographs for this article.

Q A

with the 4S Ranch Master Association

92127 Question: When and how did the 4S Ranch Master Association begin? 4S Ranch: In 1842 English sea captain Joseph Snook, as a naturalized Mexican citizen, married the daughter of the recipient of a land grant of 17,000 acres known as Rancho San Bernardo from the Mexican government. A working cattle ranch for nearly a century, the property was divided, changing hands several times – retaining the name 4S Ranch. In 1938 the land was purchased by Albert Ralphs, head of the Los Angeles-based grocery store chain. In the early 1980s, the Ralphs family decided to retain 1,200 acres as a family retreat and developed the southern portion of land facebook.com/92127magazine

into what is now the 4S Ranch Master Planned Community. 4S Commons Town Center was named after the English policy in the late middle ages of having a “commons” in the end or center of town where livestock could graze “in common.” 4S Ranch parks are named Heritage, Pioneer, Patriot, Freedom, and so on, as a tribute to the pioneer heritage of the area. The Ralphs family ancestors (four brothers) traveled across the continent in wagon trains (with one wife pregnant and carrying a 2-year-old) in the early 1850s. They came for religious freedom, and the names bestowed on the common areas honors them. “We watched Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos and Carmel

Mountain Ranch being built,” said Linda Ralphs Kaeser, who has resided in Rancho Santa Fe for 20 years. “While they have many nice features, we thought we could do better. We began actively planning (the 4S Ranch community) in 1981; construction of the first phase began in 1987.” 92127 Question: What attracted the Ralphs family to the land? 4S Ranch: Rolling hills and deep valleys, sky-blue lakes that stretched through the winding terrain and rugged ridges, cool breezes, views to the horizon, the peace and quiet of the wide-open spaces, and the company of wildlife. 92127 Question: Can you name a few of the fondest memories of the Ralphs family on the land? 4S Ranch: Horseback riding through the hills, big family dinners, long hikes, dove hunting – perhaps best of all, there were no phones – we lived “off the grid” – and listening to the sound of breezes blowing through the mighty eucalyptus trees. 92127 Question: How was the decision made to develop the land? 4S Ranch: The Ralphs family partnered with 4S Kelwood in the early 1990s, making every decision together. “We had no partners in the first phase, which was primarily a business park,” said Ms. Ralphs Kaeser. “And we have always felt a strong commitment to the land, bought by my grandfather in 1938. We had a vision to build the best possible master planned community anywhere. Period.” And the Ralphs family did not sell that vision short; it is one now shared by the many families who have come to enjoy life here at 4S Ranch. “We have done everything we possibly could to help that happen. Staying a part of that process and protecting that vision has been the major focus of my life,” said Ms. Ralphs Kaeser. “We are here for the long haul. I hope that all of our grandchildren will be proud of all that 4S Ranch has become.” She added that as a working mother, she personally planned a community with busy parents in mind: One-stop shopping – live, work, pray, and play – with families all together. “You should see all of the little PHOTOS (Left to Right): • Recent photo of Linear Park in 4S Ranch • Historic Photo: Percy Brooksbank, Ava and Albert Ralphs, and Richard Ralphs, grandson of George Albert Ralphs - Courtesy of Linda Ralphs Kaeser • Historic Photo: Ava Ralphs, grandmother of Linda Ralphs Kaeser, circa 1945, overlooking Lake Hodges - Courtesy of Linda Ralphs Kaeser • Historic Photo: Ralphs Family Retreat - Barn, this structure was originally built where 4S Commons Town Center is now located, it was disassembled with every board numbered and moved when the area was developed - Courtesy of Newland Communities and the Ralphs Family

Hickerson – who also serves on the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District Board – has been Board President for the last three years. Erpelding is a principal in the Poway Unified School District. John Pintacuda, a licensed real estate broker with 23 years of experience in property management, has served on the board since 2007. David Maley, a veteran of the U.S. Navy, holds a Bachelor of Science degree in business management and joined the board in 2009. Linda Ralphs Kaeser, granddaughter of Albert Ralphs, has sat on the board from the beginning – first as a developer representative, and later as a director elected by homeowners. 92127 Question: What is the structure of the Association? 4S Ranch: 4S Ranch Master Association is comprised of 32 delegate districts – each maintaining voting power based on the number of units sold – which elect a portion of the Board each year on a rotating annual calendar of two or three seats respectively. 92127 Question: What are the specific roles for the Association Board of Directors and the Prescott Companies Management Team? 4S Ranch: The roles are divided into three areas: 1. Board of Directors: Directors are elected to perform all of the duties and powers vested in or delegated to the Master Association per the governing documents, including but not limited to the adoption and publishing of rules and regulations pertaining to the use of Association Property and the personal conduct of the Owners and their guests. 2. Prescott Companies Management Team: A driving force in the management of the Master Association, the Prescott Companies ensures effective governance and member support, with full-service solutions pertaining to the day-to-day life of the Association.

3. 4S Ranch Activities and Communications Team: As part of the management team of the Master Association, the Prescott Companies Activities and Communications Director and staff promote, protect and preserve the organization with a full menu of public events. Summer programs and activities designed especially for members bring families together from all walks of life and create a sense of unity within the community. Lush green common areas -- seen in the luminous glow of moonlight (at Summer Movies in the Park, Fourth of July fireworks), the shimmer of sunrise (Spring Egg Hunt and early-riser Pancake Breakfast) or the rich tone of sunset (Fall Concert in the Park) – promise an array of wonders through the year. 92127 Question: When and where are the Association Board meetings and can any resident attend? 4S Ranch: Every third Tuesday at 5:30 pm, at the 4S Ranch Branch of the San Diego County Library; 4S Ranch Association members only may attend. Occasionally meeting dates change due to conflicts, and members are encouraged to verify the meeting date and location via 4SConnect.com. 92127 Question: When and how often are Association Board elections held? 4S Ranch: The Annual Meeting and Election of Directors is held annually in November in the community room at the 4S Ranch Branch of the San Diego County Library. 92127 Question: How can a 4S Ranch resident become involved with the association, either as a board member or a community volunteer assisting with events and activities? 4S Ranch: Members may participate in their community government primarily in the roles of Delegate or Board member, or may volunteer to serve on a committee of their choosing, or help at an Association-sponsored event or activity. For more information, members in good standing may email 4sranch@prescottmgt.com 92127 Question: What are the primary responsibilities and priorities of the association? 4S Ranch: The Association is principally engaged in providing for the management, administration, maintenance, preservation and architectural control of the community, in addition to promoting the health, safety, and welfare of its members. A dynamic and richly diverse community still in development, 4S Ranch relies on the Master Association to provide the kind of leadership and oversight to its membership that both preserves its traditional nature and promotes future-friendly decisions, while protecting the value of its natural resources and architectural integrity. 92127 Question: What makes the 4S Ranch Master Association differ-

ent or unique, when compared to other planned community homeowners’ organizations? 4S Ranch: 4S Ranch encapsulates a rich diversity of architectural and natural elements: with more than 10 miles of walking trails and 1,600 acres of dedicated open space, a community garden, town green, splash park, baseball field and many public spaces – including a 22-acre community park with picnic areas, and proximity to 4S Commons, which includes a retail center and library. 92127 Question: What does the association hope to accomplish with its summer events for local residents? 4S Ranch: The Master Association is dedicated to community outreach with a full program of events for its members and their guests – plus a menu of activities designed to promote interaction with the public, such as Summer Movies in the Park and the fall Concert in the Park. In addition, the Association works closely with 4S Ranch Little League and Girls Softball League to promote sports events at the baseball field. 92127 Question: What are some of the summer events and activities planned for this year? 4S Ranch: 2011 will feature many fun and fabulous activities for members and their guests, that are also open to the public. In Summer 2011, 4S Ranch residents will enjoy Movies in the Park, a series of blockbuster hits viewed in the open arena of 4S Ranch Community Park – under the stars, complete with popcorn and moonlight. The Association also co-sponsors the 4th of July Fireworks after dark at Del Norte High School, with free field seating and refreshments available for purchase. In Fall 2011, the Concert in the Park highlights a rock theme, and members and their guests may dress down in jeans and tee shirts for this one.

4S HOA, County Split Responsibilities, Offer Events, Activities at Local Parks by TARA PRITCHETT 92127 Magazine Staff

O

n any given day, 4S Ranch residents will see kids practicing their monkey bar skills or learning to pump their legs on the swings, teenagers playing hoops, and adults partaking in boot camp workouts. They’ll also see young and old lining up their shots on the putting green, aiming at bocce ball or horseshoe targets, or even participating in early morning Qigong, a favorite local Chinese exercise. All of this happens at the local parks in 4S Ranch. Most community members have taken advantage of the multitude of parks in 92127, which is one reason so many are attracted to the various communities. In the 4S Ranch planned community, the 4S Ranch Master Association and County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation have teamed up to keep the grounds of the parks in top shape. Each group has exclusive ownership of specific parks. 4S Ranch Master Association May | June 2011

(HOA) maintains PIONEER PARK, also known as “Splash Park.” This park is at the corner of Albert and Sienna Hills on the North Side of 4S Ranch. Main features include a large play structure, Splash Park, gazebos, swings and barbecues. A private, HOA-maintained facility, it is designed exclusively for 4S Ranch residents. A key-FOB must be purchased in order to gain access to the park. The Summer Splash Park hours run 10 a.m.-7 p.m. LINEAR PARK – home to many 4S Ranch HOA-sponsored events like the 4th of July Celebration and Concerts in the Park – is also managed by the HOA. Located on the north side of 4S Ranch, this park features a putting green, horseshoe runs, a large gazebo and excellent opportunities for easy bike rides and flat, dry land exercise. The two pocket parks on Deer Trail Drive and Deer Ridge Road and Wells Fargo Field are maintained by the HOA along with the Tot Lot on Painted Canyon and the Park on Dove 92127magazine.com


Creek Road. County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation maintains grounds at Patriot Park, Heritage Park and the 4S Ranch Community Sports Park. PATRIOT PARK, also known as “The Red Park” boasts a rock climbing wall, state of the art play structure and a pirate ship playground. Adjacent to the park, which sits next to Monterey Ridge Elementary School, is a large grassy area where soccer and football have been meeting up for practices and games and kites have been soaring. The sidewalk around this area runs approximately ¼ mile in length, which is why one may see people running countless laps around the “track.” HERITAGE PARK, on the corner of Lone Quail, is also a local favorite. The play structure is fun for all ages, the basketball courts are well maintained and the grassy area surrounding the park has been home to dog training on Saturday mornings as well as intense games of flag football. The most used park in the community, 4S RANCH COMMUNITY SPORTS PARK offers baseball and soccer fields, roller hockey, tennis, basketball and bocce ball courts. Park hours are 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Most fields and courts are subject to reservation and park activities and need to be scheduled with the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation. Their offices are located behind the 4S Ranch Boys & Girls Club next to the basketball courts, at 16118 4S Ranch Parkway, Building D. Residents wanting to hold a camp, clinic or class, or have questions, should contact the Recreation Office at 858-673-3900. ¢

Love of Sport

Leads to 4S Ranch Soccer League’s Growth by ZEENA GREGG

Special to 92127 Magazine

T

he leaders of 4S Ranch Youth Soccer Association – started in 2004 – have a whole lot in common. Babak Azad, president and founder, saw the need for a youth soccer organization in the community, and together with his wife, Cybele, stepped forward to make it happen. To get things going, the Azads distributed flyers at Stone Ranch Elementary and registered families in the back of his truck parked near the local Starbucks. These grassroots efforts led to an impressive 300 registrations back then, but a true testament to their hard work is that the association now has more than 1,000 participants. “The enormous amount of time that this has taken from me and my family as well as the rest of our volunteers is always rewarded best when during the practices and games we see smiling and laughing children of all ages having a great time player soccer right here in our neighborhood,” Azad said. Azad’s love of soccer began as a child as he grew up with street soccer in his hometown of Tehran, Iran – and later played soccer while attending high school in Memphis, Tenn. When he’s not involved in soccer, Azad’s other hobbies include reading, music, scuba diving, hiking, boating, and spending quality family time with his wife and four children. Azad also considers his job (he’s CEO of his own biotechnical company, DNAmicroarray Inc.) a hobby as well. Like Azad, Ben Russ, currently serving as the soccer organization’s vice president, also grew up with soccer – playing the sport for most of his life. Russ initially signed up as a coach in the first spring season in 2005, attended a board meeting shortly thereafter and has been with the club coaching and serving on the board ever since. “My biggest accomplishment has been helping to grow the club each and every year,” said Russ. Also a family man, Russ is married to wife Kara, and has five children. 4S Ranch Soccer has two leagues: A recreational league open to all players regardless of skill level or where they live (www.4sranchsoccer. com) and a competitive division, the 4S Avengers (www. avengerssoccer.com) that play in the San Diego Presidio league. ¢

Two 4S PUSD Employees Receive Top Honors

P

oway Unified School District’s Classified Employees of the Year both work in 92127. Vonnie Warrick, Monterey Ridge Elementary School Administrative Assistant, and Trish Malimali, Lead Adult Education/ ROP Office Specialist who now works at Del Norte High School were selected by a committee of district and site representatives based on work performance, contributions to the school district, and community service. Both campuses are located in 4S Ranch. Warrick’s principal, Dr. Richard Newman, described her as a people person and as the co-pilot of the school. The multiple hats Vonnie wears – from administrative assistant, to health advisor, surrogate mom, leader, cheerleader and friend – makes the school Vonnie Warrick office a friendly and inviting place for all to visit, according to Newman. “Vonnie ensures that successes are celebrated and students are recognized and cared for when they enter the office. She is someone who helps others achieve their potential and who students, staff, and parents naturally gravitate towards. She is a quintessential problem solver, an out-of-the box thinker, and a highly effective leader in the office,” said Newman. The second PUSD honoree, Trish Malimali, has been a valued member of the Career, Technical, and Adult Education team. Her

excellent communication skills, both oral and written, have assisted her immeasurably in interactions with co-workers, supervisors, and members of outside organizations, according to Kathleen Porter, Career, Technical, and Adult Education Executive Director. “Trish complements her excellent work skills with an exceptional work ethic,” Porter said. “She is always on time, always prepared, always accurate, and can be counted on to do whatever it takes to get the job done. I have been impressed on many occasions by Trish’s ability to skillfully handle constant interruptions, multiple (and often conflicting) demands, and an incredible workload.” Malimali, presently located at Del Norte High School after a recent promotion to the position of high school registrar – consistently demonstrates the ability to anticipate and remedy problems before they occur, Porter said. “She became a leader in the department in record time, helping others Trish Malimali interpret and understand data collection requirements and establishing office procedures to improve efficiency and effectiveness,” she continued. “Trish’s ability to understand the requirements and nuances of the Adult Education/ROP department and its many different funding sources quickly demonstrated. She has served as a lead staff person for the department in interacting with the County Office of Education for Adult Education contracts.” ¢

Golf Benefits Young 4S Ranch Resident G

avin Cole Marquez – only 5½ years old – has an extremely rare hereditary disease and needs assistance from the 4S Ranch community. The first annual Golf for Gavin event is scheduled for May 20 to benefit Gavin, who was diagnosed with TaySachs disease. Gavin, born in November 2005 to 4S Ranch residents Jan and Ferd Marquez, was a happy-go-lucky baby who loved books and stuffed animals. As an infant, he was behind on many milestones and although his parents worried, they were repeatedly told that he was normal and developing at his own pace. It wasn’t until after his third birthday that the couple noticed signs of regression. It seemed that Gavin was now unable to do things that he had done just a few months before. Gavin could no longer walk without falling and he

92127 Magazine

was having difficulty eating. A series of visits to doctors and specialists resulted in an unbelievable diagnosis: Tay-Sachs. A rare hereditary disease caused by a genetic mutation, it leaves the body unable to produce an enzyme necessary for fat metabolism, causing degeneration of the central nervous system. Gavin is the only child in San Diego with a Tay-Sachs diagnosis, a disease that has no known cure. The Marquez family continues to hold out hope that

May | June 2011

they will find a way to help their son. “Though Gavin has been having many great days, he continues to fight,” said Jan Marquez. “First phase human trials [of gene therapy] are being pushed back to 2013, which is truly heartbreaking. Other possible experimental treatment options – such as stem cell treatment – may be something we may consider for Gavin. Time is against us and the disease continues to progress. We

continue to unite to work to spread awareness and raise money for Gavin.” The Golf for Gavin will take place at Carlton Oaks Golf Course in Santee with an 8 a.m. tee time. The cost to participate is $500 per foursome or $125 for an individual. Included with the package are 18 holes of golf, a gift, banquet facilities with a burger bar, and a morning snack pack – plus the opportunity to bid on items at the silent auction.

Points or No Points?

What Loan is Best For You? Below are a Few Pointers. No Point/No Fee Loans

Loans with Closing Costs

Benefits: The main benefit to a No Point/No Fee loan is that you have no out-of-pocket costs. As a result, if the rates drop in the future, you could refinance again without the need to take closing costs into consideration.

Benefits: The main benefit to paying closing costs and/or origination fees is that your rate is typically lower than a No Point/No Fee loan. You will end up saving a substantial amount of interest paid over time.

Disadvantages: The main disadvantage to a No Point/No Fee loan is that they are typically higher rates than loans with closing costs and/or origination fees. If you intend to keep the loan for a long period of time, you will end up paying more interests in the long run due to the higher rates.

Disadvantages: The primary disadvantage to obtaining a loan with closing costs and/or origination fees is the fact that it costs you more initially to obtain the loan. You must do a “break-even” analysis to determine whether or not the upfront fees outway the long-term savings.

BBQ BAR-B-Q BARBEQUE OR BARBECUE?

Whatever the Backyard Cookout Flavor, Play It Safe This Summer

C

onsumers’ love affair with barbecuing continues unabated, and for good reasons, according to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association. They tell the organization that they barbecue mainly because the food tastes good, but they cite other reasons too: It’s fun, it keeps the kitchen cool, it’s a great way to entertain at home…the list goes on. Following a few basic steps provided by the HPBA that can help ensure safe, reliable operation of an outdoor cooking appliance, regardless of what type is used. Recipe for Safety: First, be Smart and Informed The main “ingredient” for safety in outdoor cooking is common sense. Read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for assembling and using your grill or smoker, and call their “help line” numbers if you have a problem or a question. Basic Safety Tips • Use the barbecue grill outdoors, in an open area away from any enclosure or overhang – carbon monoxide can accumulate and cause fatalities. • Be sure all parts of your grill are firmly in place and that the grill is stable. • When using electrically-powered accessories (e.g., a rotisserie), be sure they are properly grounded in accordance with local codes. Buy a cord designed for outdoor use. Route the cord well away from the hot grill and away from walkways. • Use long-handled utensils to avoid burns and spatters. • Do not wear anything with hanging shirttails, frills or apron strings. • Use flame-retardant mitts when adjusting hot vents. • To extinguish flare-ups, spread out the coals with a longhandled utensil (if they can reach them easily), or adjust the controls to reduce the temperature. If a sprits of water must be used to douse the flames, first remove the food from the grill. Always use an elbow-length, flame retardant mitt when dealing with flare-ups. • Use baking soda to control a grease fire and have a fire

extinguisher handy. If no commercial extinguisher is available, keep a bucket of sand or a garden hose nearby. • Never leave a hot grill unattended. • Do not allow any activities around the grill when it is in use or still hot. Always use the grill away from combustible surfaces, and never attempt to move a hot grill. • Prior to lighting a gas grill, be sure to open the lid to prevent a buildup of gas. • When cooking is completed, be sure to turn off the fuel supply and then turn the burners to “off.” • Check your grill regularly for signs of wear and tear, particularly for hose cracks and possible leaks; also keep burners clear of dirt and insects that can block hoses or tubes. • When using a liquid propane (LP) gas grill, always store propane tanks outside and in an upright position. • Never use an LP cylinder if it shows signs of dents, gouges, bulges, fire damage, corrosion, leakage, excessive rust or other forms of visual external damage. It may be hazardous and should be checked by a liquid propane supplier. • For more consumer safety information about liquid propane, visit www.usepropane.com. ¢ The Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) provided these suggestions for general grilling safety. More information – with detailed sections on safety tips for gas, charcoal/wood chunk and electric grilling, as well as food safety tips for barbecuing – is available under the consumer link on the home page of the group’s web site (www.hpba.org).

Do Yourself and the Environment a Favor Bicycling Saves Money, Improves Health, Saves the Environment

and more!

by Ralph Simon, President of Green Cruiser Inc.

P

remium electric bicycles make sustainability a ride in the park, according to Ralph Simon, president of Green Cruiser Inc. “Our engineers designed Green Cruiser electric bicycles with the very best components to ensure dependability and your complete satisfaction,” he said. In addition, many other reasons exist to buy a Green Cruiser: • Environmental Responsibility: A Green Cruiser electric bicycle eliminates – for every 500 miles that are not car driven – 25.3 lbs. of carbon monoxide emissions, 3.4 lbs. of hydrocarbon emissions, and 1.8 lbs. of nitrogen oxide. • Get Paid to Commute: The Bicycle Commuter Act of 2009 permits companies to provide $20 a month tax free to employees who bike to work, allowing the money to be used for bicycle purchases and bike upkeep. • Parking Becomes a Non-Issue: 7-to-12 Green Cruiser E-Bikes can be parked in one automobile parking space. • Annual Gas Savings: Using an E-Bike 50 percent of the time, with gasoline priced at $4 per gallon can save $1,340 per year (assuming 41 miles driven per day in a passenger car averaging 22.5 MPG. • Health and Fitness: Riding Green Cruiser E-Bikes burns 300-500 calories per hour (compared to driving a car, which burns 5-20 calories per hour – and zero calories when stopped in traffic!).

ith the largest facility — 16,000 square feet — of its kind in San Diego County, Bounce California teaches trampoline, gymnastics and tumbling to boys and girls in a fun and active way. “We offer family friendly scheduling and pricing on all our programs,” said Susan Wilson, who owns Bounce California with husband Glenn. “Our recreational and competitive training program for girls and boys is designed so that kids make more progress in less time.” In addition, Bounce California is the only local center to offer two training floors — spring and non-spring — for Pop Warner and high school cheerleader programs seeking training space. And the center also offers birthday party packages with broad scheduling choices. Although the facility opened in 4S Ranch in 2005, the Wilsons have vast experience and operated similar facilities in San Diego County since 1980. Serving as Bounce California’s primary coaches, the Wilsons’ background includes being college gymnasts, gymnastics judges, members of NCAA gymnastics boards, members of the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame board, as well as interna-

In addition, all staff members are former gymnasts. “Our staff members know what it feels like to do something when they ask a kid to do it,” Susan Wilson said. Bounce California provides programs for all age groups, tots to teens – and adults. Students learn fundamental tumbling skills and basic trampoline progressions. Among the class offerings: • Girls and Boys Recreation Classes: Classes are for girls and boys ages 5 and up and are one hour in length and focus on skills on Trampoline, Double-Mini Trampoline, and Tumbling. • Cheer Tumbling: Cheer Tumbling classes are designed for all levels of tumbling. Girls need to be in either

middle school or high school. • Adult Classes: Held Tuesday and Thursday night for men and women over 18, drop-in classes are at 8 p.m. for one hour at a cost of $10. But Bounce California has a wide range of unique programs in its wellequipped facility, which includes six large trampolines, three tumbling trampolines, and fun activities using rope swing, zip line and space ball trampoline.

“We run recreation classes, with a recent welcoming of home school programs offered mutually agreed upon training times,” said Wilson, who noted that the center is the only place that has an open gym program for elementary school children (an afterschool program 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. “We also have a new Circus Skills Training Class,” Wilson said. “The class is directed by the husband and wife team of Pete and Rachel Wray who are staff from the San Diego Zoo Special Events Group.” Birthday parties are available at several times on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, at a variety of cost and service levels. ¢ Bounce California is located at 10806 #3 Willow Court, San Diego, CA 92127.
