:::: FROM THE PUBLISHER “We love the publication!” “Thank you for being a part of the PQ community.” “Our response to advertising in 92129 Magazine has been outstanding.” “Everyone we see is talking about the new magazine. Congratulations!” Welcome to the latest issue of 92129 Magazine. The comments above are just examples of what we’ve heard since the initial issue was published two months ago. Simply put, we are overwhelmed by the positive response, from both readers and advertisers. We realize that expectations are high for the future of the publication (and www.92129Magazine.com website).

And we will strive to deliver what our thousands of readers want to see. It is truly exciting to be a part of something so successful so quickly. Readers called, emailed and told us in person how much they enjoyed spending time with the publication. Advertisers in the first issue were thrilled with the positive response to their messages.

Carolyn Sue McElhaney August 21, 1957 - August 9, 2010

In Memoriam 92129 Magazine – and our family – lost a very special person recently in a tragic, inexplicable traffic accident. Carolyn Sue McElhaney, who actively participated in each issue of Susco Media’s publications and was the proprietor of the Postal Annex in 4S Ranch, was the heart of our family and joy of our lives. Those who knew her – many who only met her briefly – will remember her as a selfless, loving and beautiful woman. Carolyn was known to some as Sue, to three wonderful children as Mom, and to five sweet grandchildren as Momette. No matter what happened to be going on with her personally, she always managed to light up a room with a smile and made a genuine effort to make everyone around her feel special. She impacted the lives of so many people. She was a phenomenal wife, a great mother and the best grandmother imagined. She provided unconditional love, guidance, mentoring and support. 10

We have all lost a saint, but we will not say goodbye to her. Instead we will continue to celebrate her life, enjoy the things she loved, and ensure that her legacy, her example and her magic is always remembered. The memories are so very special to us now – and her insistence on experiencing and chronicling the joyful special occasions. We remember the conversations – both private and with family, the simple pleasure of receiving a hug from her, and the pure enjoyment she cherished by spending time with her grandchildren. All of us who knew Carolyn – family, friends, associates, customers and acquaintances – no doubt have random personal and special memories of talks we had with her. This was clear by the heartfelt outpouring of sorrow and remorse from so many who had come into contact with her, even if briefly. Our family – and, in fact, this world -- has lost so much with the passing of such a special person. As all of us who are touched with such a tragedy, our family will try everyday to find meaning and some understanding of such a loss. We must find solace in the belief that Carolyn’s constant example – perhaps her primary purpose in life – was showing us the importance of family, the critical need to communicate and stay close, the need to never take anything for granted, and the true meaning of consistently loving and caring for others. Our lives will never be the same; our world will never be the same. A family can never be prepared for this type of experience; however, we will continue to grow and continue to nurture each other as she would do. We will live life with more gusto

and strive to enjoy every moment. We will be closer to each other and provide better support. We will plan for the future and set goals. We will all continue to seek her approval, even though we know that was never a requirement to secure her love and admiration. And we will celebrate life and all the special occasions, with her and in her memory. Because this is how she would have it if she were still with us today. Absolutely. We are all still so sad; in so many ways, we always will miss her. But on Aug. 21, about two weeks after the accident, we gathered to celebrate Carolyn’s birthday at a restaurant where our family had shared so many memories. We sang happy birthday, we made toasts, and the children blew out candles. We smiled and we laughed. And we had a good time. We kept her spirit of family alive, for the next generation to know and cherish as well. Our task is to ensure that – even in her physical absence – Carolyn’s spirit remains in our family’s daily lives. May it provide some peace to know that she will always be with us, especially as we encounter life’s special events and milestones – which happened to be her favorite moments. Carolyn still has a lot of love, advice and support to offer our family, and we accept the challenge to realize it regularly. She was a good woman. She always put her family before everything else, and we are all extremely grateful. Thank you to all of those who provided us with your prayers, good thoughts, visits, flowers, food, cards and encouragement. We appreciate you being there for our family.

With love and gratitude, Scott McElhaney

Bouncing Through Life Students Use Gymnastics Training To Prompt Success in Many Areas photos by Spark Photography

T

wo students training at the North County Gymnastics & Gyminny Kids facility in 4S Ranch may be a few years apart, but they certainly share both a love and the talent to succeed in gymnastics and many other areas. Alexander (Lexa) Staskus, daughter of Denice Mittelstaedt and Paul Staskus and involved in gymnastics for 14 years, is a junior at Mt. Carmel High School. The Rancho Penasquitos resident has leveraged her skills and agility learned in the Gyminny Kids program into a number of sports successes. “I competed on the varsity gymnastics team as a sophomore, and I was involved in the CIF tournaments as both a freshman and sophomore – with Mt. Carmel winning both years,” Staskus said. “This year, I am also on the volleyball team.” The talented 16-year-old – who has an older brother, Kyle, attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo – also plays lacrosse, a sport she hopes to play one day in college. In addition to getting good grades at school (her favorite subject is German language; “awesome teacher, awesome classmates, awesome language, ‘nuff said”), Staskus enjoys technical theater, rock concerts, and music. She one day hopes to be an environmental engineer, and 12

“gets paid in ice cream for walking my neighbors’ dogs”. Marco Leong, son of David Leong and Barbara Romano, attends Black Mountain Middle School (in the Academy program) and has been involved gymnastics for nine years. Also a resident of Rancho Penasquitos, the 13-year-old Leong has progressed to such complex moves as a front tuck with a full twist, a back tuck, and a round off back handspring through hard work, expert instruction and perseverance. He also participates on the Gyminny Kids Demo Team, giving performances throughout San Diego, including San Diego State University Aztecs’ and University of San Diego Toreros’ events. Plus, Leong has a passion for drumming and music (with an interest in be-bop jazz, among other genres), swims and has a black belt in taekwondo. His favorite subjects in school include band and mathematics. And he has his very own favorite macaroni and cheese recipe. “I like to cook,” Leong said. “I would like to consider being a chef, but many other professions and opportunities may rise. I’m only 13 and would like to keep my options open.” Leong – who has an older brother Gianni who also participated in the Gyminny Kids’ programs – is described as “a happy kid with an absolute zest for life”. According to his parents, when he leaves his gymnastics session, he is soaked in sweat with beet-red cheeks and a beaming smile that is both genuine and contagious. ¢

ocated just north of residents living in Rancho Penasquitos, Lake Hodges is considered by many to be a premier fishing lake – and it’s remarkably close. For those local residents who only see the City of San Diego-owned public water reservoir as a small shallow lake while driving along Interstate 15, be aware that the lake actually snakes more than five miles through the hills south of Escondido and east of Rancho Santa Fe. The lake offers a lot to do, with everything from fishing (a public boat ramp is available on specific days of the week), hiking, mountain biking, and picnicking available – plus its own lake monster legend. The lake features 27 shore miles and 1,234 surface acres, which makes it one of the bigger lakes in San Diego County. Plus it has a reputation as a premier bass fishing location. While the most common fish species caught at Lake Hodges tend to be bass and crappie, the lake also includes channel catfish (the only speOctober | November 2010

cies that is regularly stocked), bluegill, bullhead and carp. Operated by the San Diego City Lake Department, it is open on a limited number of days from spring through fall (check www.sdrp.org. for more information.). Since concession facilities at the lake are closed, anglers must bring their own bait, tackles and supplies. To add a bit of spice to a Lake Hodges visit, local residents should also be aware that there have also been rumors of something akin to the Loch Ness Monster residing at Lake Hodges. In the late 1920s, reports began to circulate of a strange creature spotted in the waters of the lake. The first official report came in 1929, when the mayor of Escondido formally asked San Diego officials to look into reports of a creature below the depths. The monster became known as Hodgee, and various research projects have produced only blurry photographs and vague reports of a creature with a “lizard-like head. More details 92129magazine.com


are available at www.hodgee.com. The lake is part of the San Dieguito River Park, and the surrounding trails offer some great hiking routes to waterfalls, isolated lake views and wildlife viewing. It was created with the building of Hodges Dam on San Dieguito Creek in 1918. The City of San Diego purchased the dam and reservoir in 1925. There are six barbecues and 12 picnic tables in the picnic area. Patrons can bring self-contained gas barbecues for use in designated areas only. No ground fires or glass containers are allowed. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times and at least 50 feet away from the water. Overnight camping is not allowed at Lake Hodges. Anglers 16 years of age or older must have a California state fishing license, which is not available at the lake currently. In addition to fishing from boats and a wheelchair accessible fishing float, patrons can use float tubes, waders, or simply fish from shore, which is generally readily accessible by foot. The dirt hiking and riding trails around much of the lake wind through ever-changing terrain and biological settings which include streams, lush river valleys, canopied oak forests, arid rocky terrain and open fields. The topography changes from elevated vistas to marsh-like wetlands. There are accessible staging areas at five locations along the 7-mile primary route. For more information on Lake Hodges trails, visit the web site for San Dieguito River Park at www.sdrp.org. ¢

Summers Are Made for Sports

Participating, Coaching a True Family Affair for PQ Family

J

ust ask Tom and Amy Summers about their family’s biggest common interest – and they don’t even hesitate: Sports! The Summers family moved to the Park Village neighborhood in Rancho Penasquitos in 2006, after Tom – a National Accounts Executive for a wholesale building materials company – was transferred. And after researching schools and youth sports opportunity, choosing PQ was an easy decision. Of course, it also didn’t hurt that Amy, an instructional assistant at Westview High School, had an identical twin sister and her family already living in the community. So how big is sports participation to this family? Well, all four of their children are involved to start, including football (both Pop Warner and Westview High School), lacrosse (Penasquitos Tigers and Westview High School), and recreational soccer for the youngest family member, 8-year-old Mikaela, a third grader at Park Village Elementary. “In August, that meant making it to 24 practices for the

family members (or getting help from car pools…),” according to Tom. The Summers’ other children are Chris, a sophomore at Westview High School; Brent an eighth grader at Mesa Verde Middle School; and T.J., a fifth grader at Park Village. And all are thrilled with living in Rancho Penaquitos, especially with family so close. “We actually live just five houses down the street from my sister and her family (husband and three children),” Amy said. “All seven cousins are great friends. When we show up at events, they all roll out of the car and people can’t believe how much they look alike.” She added that both she and Tom feel extremely lucky to have such a close extended family in the community. In addition to all the participation by the children in local sports activities, Tom – a native of central New York – has made a personal commitment to give back to the sport of lacrosse through his involvement in coaching. Not only is he

an assistant lacrosse coach at Westview High School, but he also was involved in establishing the San Diego Youth Lacrosse Festival, which is held locally every February.

The Summers family managed to coordinate a total of 24 practices during August The boys and girls youth event includes teams from as far away as Texas and Colorado. And the 2011 edition (5th Annual) will feature 50 teams from around the western United States. “The lacrosse festival is a true family affair,” Tom said. “Everyone pitches in to ensure that all attendees have a great experience.” ¢ Know a family that should be profiled in 92129 Magazine?

Kidding Around Offers Unique Children’s (and Parent’s) Experience

A

s the parents of young twins, Ronyt and Lyle Sprung knew they wanted Kidding Around to be clean, safe and fun – and to also appeal to the parents. “We felt there were many ways to improve on the indoor playground concept,” said Ronyt Sprung. “And that was the start of the thought process for Kidding Around.” Located at 9925 Carmel Mountain Road in Rancho Penasquitos, the indoor playground (and more!) offers a dynamic play area, games and activities, classes, a party room for birthdays, constant care and oversight, reasonable prices – and a place for adults as well. “Our goal is to provide a safe and clean environment for kids (primarily up to eight years of age, although older children also enjoy) and grown-ups to come have a great time,” Sprung said. “We know kids are going to have fun in a place like ours, but we also wanted to make it a place where the grown-ups want to go.”

Several things make Kidding Around unique from other family fun facilities: • Equipment was selected to have a balance for all the age groups. “For example, we have a large air jumper that everyone can use, but we also have a smaller air jumper that is meant for toddlers only,” Sprung said. This ensures the littlest visitors are safe. • The layout of the facility was designed so the grownups have full visibility of the playground from the lounge area. • In-and-out privileges are available for the entire day. • The facility provides a full coffee bar – with FREE WiFi – and a nice selection of food for the kids and the grown-ups. • The professional staff is instructed to play and interact with the kids. So, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a Kidding Around staff member jumping in the air jumper with the kids or climbing with them through the large climbing structure. “The thought is, if we can give that parent a few minutes to sit and relax while we play with the kids it would be great for them,” Sprung said, noting such amenities as the boutique, a variety of special classes, and “twin day” Mondays, featuring two for the price of one admission.

We provide two Kidding Around employees to assist in keeping everything on time and to play with the kids. Plus, we will help to pack up, clean up and assist you to your car with your take-home items.” Sprung also noted that all packages are very reasonably priced and that any event can be customized to fit any specific needs. Beyond parties and playgrounds, Kidding Around also offers a variety of classes for children. In addition to “hip hop dance” classes currently available for registration, a “baby sign language” class is offered – plus, additional instruction is planned for art, music and baby yoga. Among the unique aspects of Kidding Around is a staff that actually plays with the kids, in addition to making sure the playground and facility is clean. “We have excellent customer service and we really care about every one of our little clients and their needs,” Sprung said. “We have a spacious area for the kids to run around and we have a nice variety of toys for the kids. And here is a little secret…we have some new exciting equipment coming very soon.” ¢

For adults, the grown-ups lounge features comfortable leather chairs and modern décor, in addition to the coffee bar and FREE WiFi Internet connection. “We have a wide variety of magazines to read as well. The thought process here is that the grownup can come and relax in the lounge while their kids exercise and have a great time,” Sprung said. “The grown-ups have full visibility of the playground from the lounge area.” And the boutique at the facility carries a wide selection of items. “What makes it personal for us is that all of the brands we carry are brands we use ourselves, such as Melissa & Doug, Pedipeds, Taggies and Zirimi hair clips,” Sprung said. Kidding Around’s owners are especially proud of the private and semi-private birthday celebrations. “We take care of everything,” Sprung said. “You choose your party package and we handle the rest.

PQ Kiwanis Celebrates 8th Anniversary

September 20 marked the 8th year that the PQ Kiwanis Club has been an organization in Rancho Penasquitos. During those 8 years we have had many very successful projects due to the participation of our friends in the community. The projects we have sponsored were the Kiwanis Market and Bazaar, the Chest Book donation program, finger printing children, the adoption of the Park Village Elementary School, the Children’s Hospital Miracle Miles of Quarters, Easter Egg Hunt for the children, talent show, Miss Penasquitos Beauty Pageant, bicycle safety program, Halloween Parade and fund raisers. Our on-going project is with the Kiwanis High School Key Clubs – the high school component of Kiwanis. We sponsor the three area high schools – Mt. Carmel High School, Westview High School and Catholic Cathedral High School. Each high school has between 100 to 200 members. We also sponsor the K-Club, which is the grade school version at Schoal Creek Elementary School in Sabre Springs. The Key clubs fulfill community service hours required for graduation.

Westview High Parent Runs for Poway School Board

Fred Pierce, whose daughter is a senior at Westview High School, has declared his candidacy for the Poway School Board in this fall’s general election. Pierce, 48, is a 17-year resident in the District and is a local business, education and community leader. His educational experience includes six years as a Trustee for the California State University (CSU) System. Pierce has also served as president of five different university alumni associations including the CSU Alumni Council (statewide board representing 23 CSU alumni associations) and SDSU Alumni Association. Professionally, Pierce is President and CEO of Pierce Education Properties, a national firm specializing in student housing and educational real estate. He was named the Alumni of the Year by the SDSU College of Business Administration in 1999 and earlier this year was named a San Diego semifinalist for Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. “Currently, all of the Poway School Board members reside in Poway and it has been a very long time since a board member has come from the area west of I-15,” said Pierce. “As a majority of the schools in the district are located west of I-15, our communities deserve a voice on the board.” Pierce has indicated that his priorities if elected would include gaining equal admissions access to SDSU for District graduates, increasing private financial support for the schools and enhancing the District’s legislative clout in Sacramento.

Protecting Lives, Property and the Environment

An Inside Look into PQ’s Fire Station 40

S

SDFD protects most of Zip Code 92129 and Rancho Penasquitos out of Fire Station 40, located at 13393 Salmon River Road in PQ. In total, SDFD covers 331 square miles and services more than 1.3 million people. The department’s Maurice Luque, Media Services Manager and spokesperson, provides 92129 Magazine readers with some insight below into the operations at Fire Station 40 and its team of dedicated public servants.

Questions & Answers 92129 Question: What is the structure of the fire station, in terms of personnel and shifts? Luque: Six personnel on a regular basis each day (four firefighters to staff the truck; and two ambulance/San Diego Medical Services personnel. Fire Station 40 is a “double house” station, meaning there is also an engine based there, but as most (Rancho Penasquitos residents) know the engine is browned out (out of service due to budget restrictions) monthly. There is also a water tender at the station and a brush engine (an off road fire engine.) The staffing is for three distinct shifts – known as “divisions” A, B and C.

92129 Question: What is the most common type of call to which personnel at the station respond? Luque: Medical – 85 to 90 percent of all calls crews respond to are medical. This is typical of all fire departments anywhere.

92129 Question: When was the station opened, and how does it compare to the other stations in the department? Luque: Fire Station 40, located at 13393 Salmon River Road in the Rancho Penasquitos community of San Diego, was placed into service in June 1981. In addition to its fire protection, inspection and medical/rescue responsibilities, Station 40 is responsible for the repair, maintenance, and annual inspection and testing of all ground ladders in the department. The firefighters look for loose rivets or nuts, cracks, or other faults. There are three ladders on each engine and 10 ladders on each truck. Besides ladders, Station 40 also repairs small tools with wooden handles such as axes and pike poles.

92129 Question: What is the most common misconception about firefighters and emergency personnel? Luque: Many firefighters would say that there are many inaccurate perceptions about their pay and benefits.

92129 Question: Many fire stations include pets or mascots, such as a Dalmatian; are there any at the station? Luque: There are no mascots at any stations in the San Diego Fire Department; however, there are two dogs that participate as part of operations – an arson dog at Fire Station 1 and an Urban Search and Rescue dog at Fire Station 12. They are at the stations only when their handlers/firefighters are on duty.

92129 Question: What type of on-going training for personnel at the station occurs on a regular basis? Luque: The training is basically standardized for all fire-rescue personnel. It ranges from manipulative with equipment and apparatus to medical-related training.

92129 Question: Can you describe the best or most gratifying aspect of serving the residents near the station? Luque: The crews say they are grateful to have the opportunity to be of service to their “neighbors” when the need arises. They also welcome interacting with the community at events and meetings, as well as talking about safety at schools. 92129 Question: How can community residents schedule fire inspections or visits to the station? Luque: Questions about fire inspections can be directed to the Fire Prevention Bureau at 619-533-4300. Station visits are coordinated by the Public Information Office at 619-533-3780. ¢ Left to right: Jon Husby (Engineer), Tim Olson (Firefighter Paramedic), Dena Sickels (Captain), Ken Harris (Firefighter)

92129 Question: What is the typical shift at the station? Luque: Firefighters at Station 40 typically work a 24 hour shift. 92129 Question: Firefighters often become known for their cooking skills – does the station have a resident “top chef”, someone who has a reputation for good meals? Luque: Firefighter/paramedic Benson Perez is “hands down” the best cook, according the crews at the station. His specialty is “any Mexican food dish.” 92129 Question: How many emergency calls are dispatched from the station per month on average? Luque: In the most recent 12-month fiscal year, Station 40 dispatched a unit to 3,412 total incidents, including fires and medical/rescue (this number could involve multiple units to the same incident). facebook.com/92129magazine

Beautiful Setting, Plus Qualified Staff Lifetime Montessori Strives for Quality Care, High Standards

A

ccording to Lifetime Montessori School officials, distinction in education is fairly simple: Provide excellence in education with a beautiful setting with new, lovely materials and a highly qualified staff. Lifetime Montessori provides quality education and care for children ages 18 months through kindergarten. “We have high standards, a highly educated staff, and we are in tune with the students,” said Kristin Edwards, the school’s director. “We provide quality care for parents and their children. We find that each parent’s high standards are happily satisfied upon entering our program. Children are inspired and challenged within our loving, nurturing and stimulating environment.” Lifetime Montessori puts a premium on quality education. “A Montessori school’s main objective is to instill confidence and independence in the child,” Edwards said. “We want children to think ‘I can do that’ as they explore every environment they are in. When children feel confident and secure, they can expand their academic horizon, learing to read, write and do math.” Open 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day, the Lifetime facility offers a variety of benefits: • A highly trained teaching staff, providing excellence in education. • A beautiful environment and excellent materials (providing a situation whereby children are excited about school). • The Montessori method of instruction, considered by many to be superior to traditional methods. “Our teachers are highly trained, and devoted to this school,” Edwards said. “The Montessori method is proven to get kids excited about learning, which means they do learn a lot more than we would expect at such a young age.” Lifetime Montessori School has been in its current location for three years, and is one of four Association of Montessori International affiliated schools in San Diego. ¢

What if

Four Simple Tips to Keep It Draining

I

t’s in virtually every home in our area. It almost always works flawlessly -- but when it doesn’t work, it is a major inconvenience. Before even begin to reviewing any type of troubleshooting on a nonworking garbage disposal, it’s extremely important to establish one rule: Never put your hand in the hopper. Never, ever. Not even to retrieve an errant spoon. So let’s take a look at what problems might surface in kitchen with the indispensible disposal – and some of the possible solutions (and don’t avoid calling on an expert, if these solutions are too daunting or don’t provide the results expected).

Problem #1: Disposal does not turn on

If the disposal will not turn on and does not make a humming sound, then there is an electrical problem. Here are some basic steps: • • • •

Make sure the disposal is plugged in. Press the “reset” button on the bottom of the disposal unit. If that does not work, check to see if a circuit breaker was tripped. If neither works, then the problem is likely a faulty switch or garbage disposal. First locate the switch that powers the disposal unit (should be located on the wall but may be under the sink). Check the switch first, then move to replacing the unit.

Problem #2: Stuck Flywheel

If the garbage disposal won’t turn on but makes a humming sound, the flywheel is stuck because something is lodged in it. • Turn off power to the garbage disposal; take the offset wrench that came with the disposal unit and insert the wrench into the flywheel turning hole in the bottom of the unit. If no wrench can be found, pick one up from a local hardware store. Turn it clockwise to dislodge. • Another approach is to use a wooden object to free the stuck impeller and flywheel from the top of the unit through the drain. • Once freed, turn the power back on at the panel – but don’t turn on the disposal yet. Instead, press the reset button. And run some tap water into the disposal and quickly flip the switch on and off, to wash the obstruction down. 31 facebook.com/92129magazine 92127 Magazine

Problem #3: Leaking Garbage Disposal

Leaks can occur at a number of places on a garbage disposal: At the sink flange, at the dishwasher connection, or at the discharge drainpipe. Turn off the power, and check each of these potential leakage points. As needed, utilize plumbers’ putty, replace hoses, or add gaskets as necessary.

Problem #4: Slow Draining

A garbage disposal draining slowly can be caused by a number of problems. • Assuming you’ve given the disposal enough time to run and clear the garbage, you probably have a clogged drain line. Avoid chemical drain cleaners if possible, to keep from damaging the disposal. • Remove bolts holding the discharge pipe to the disposal. Disconnect the drain trap and remove the trap and the discharge drain pipe. Check for clogs or obstructions. • If none are found, the clog lies in the line going into the wall or beyond the vertical pipe going into the wall, meaning the obstruction must be cleared with a sink auger. • To avoid future clogs, do not grind up potato peelings, eggshells or coffee grounds in the disposal. And regularly grind up pieces of lemon feel and ice cubes. ¢

:::: REAL ESTATE WATCH

What’s the Best Mortgage? No Mortgage! Imagine waking up tomorrow without a mortgage. How would you feel? Probably pretty great. More importantly, what would you do now? Would you find a less stressful job? Start a business? Spend more time with the kids? Help out at a local charity? Work on your fitness? Bottom line, having no mortgage could dramatically change your life. The problem is, most lenders want you to only focus on getting the lowest rate and payment. Of course that’s not all bad, but it ignores the bigger issue: you’re still paying off three decades from now (maybe). And still incurring a huge interest

cost as a result – even at today’s rates. At CMG, we’ve got the best rates, but we’ll also show you the patented Home Ownership Accelerator loan. It could allow you to cut your interest costs in half, and be able to own your home free and clear in just a few years, rather than decades. With no change to your spending habits. And full access to your rapidly-growing equity along the way! You’ve got to check this loan out. Call us today, and we’ll help you get started on the road to true financial freedom! ¢
