Publisher’s Note

Published by Village News, Inc.

I hope you enjoy our Sourcebook magazine this year. It is filled to the brim with stories about interesting people. Some of them you may know and have known for a long time but didn’t realize what amazing things they did before they moved to the area. Such is the case with Dom Savoca, who fought in the Battle of the Bulge and marriage and family counselor Robert Wright who, during his military career, flew wounded warriors out of the jungles of Vietnam. Did you ever think of Fallbrook or Bonsall as exotic? This a haven for growers of exotic fruits, flowers and birds, all of which are nurtured here and then shipped out for others to enjoy. Read about Emerald Forest Bird Gardens in DeLuz or take a peek into the house of renowned Fallbrook artist Michael O’Brien, who continues to make his home an artistic wonder. Explore what Fallbrook residents Larry Saunders and Kimberley Zember are doing to bring water, education and joy to others in Africa. Additional stories highlight international businesses that people have started right here from their homes, such as Bonsall resident Janie Hoffman, who has created an exotic healthy drink from the chia seed that is taking the nation by storm or the Siemens, who started an international company that ships coconut coir to farmers and growers around the world, or the Luomas, who have parts from their engineering firm going into space! You’ll want to keep the Sourcebook on the coffee table during the year to reference the dining guide, calendar, hiking guide, golf guide, non-profit directory, stories on things to do locally, and information on the many advertisers who support our community everyday and make this a vibrant and wonderful and exotic place to live!

At shortly af ter 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14, authorities on Camp Pendleton reported that firefighters had been bat tling five small brush fires apparently sparked by military exercises. The fires were spread over open

According to First Lt. Ryan Welsh, a number of small fires are burning on Camp Pendleton, in the Whiskey, Quebec and Zulu impact areas, all of which are in the center of the base. Smoke is visible on and of f base he said, but there is no threat to personnel or structures. A press release sent out earlier today stated that Camp Pendleton units will be conducting ex tended regimental live-fire artillery training exercises in the Whiskey and Zulu impact areas, Friday night through Saturday evening.

Ex tended firing will be conducting throughout Friday night until 2 a.m., Saturday. Training will resume at 5 a.m. and end by midnight, Saturday.

Regimental live-fire artillery exercises involve approximately 25 Howitzer 155mm cannons. Depending on atmospheric conditions, the sound of the explosions may be amplified and heard up to 50 miles away.

CAMP PENDLETON - More than one fire has been started today, with the first one around noon. The fires are likely the result of live fire training being conducted today and tomorrow. A prior press release from Camp Pendleton warned of noise that would be generated by 25 Howitzer 155 mm cannons. It appears that there is no threat of structures at this time. The following general information is found on the Marine Corps Camp Pendleton’s fire information pages:

As a result of the nature of some of the live-fire training conducted on Camp Pendleton, impact-area fires are not uncommon. All Camp Pendleton impact-area fires are monitored by base fire fighters to insure they pose no threat to lives or property either on or of f base.

anytime, anywhere!

Live-fire training ranges surround what is essentially one large impact area in the middle of the base. In recognition of southern California’s historical vulnerability to fires, the impact area, the training ranges and the boundaries of the base are buf fered by a network of fire breaks. To compliment the protection af forded by the fire break system, the type and scope of live-fire training conducted is regulated by what we refer to as the Fire Danger Rating.

Multi-functional Fruit,


Coir by Ashley Tousignant


oy and Robin Siemens, owners of RS Growers Supply, wanted to think ‘outside of the box’ when it came to adding soil to their product line in their company. Their research resulted in an amazing product called Coconut Coir made from the multi-functional fruit, coconuts. After living in Laguna Niguel, The Siemens wanted to move closer to where their nursery clients were, so 13 years ago they decided to move to Fallbrook. After meeting in a country western bar in Lake Forrest, California, Roy was smitten by Robin’s passion to dance and her love of life. After dating for four years, they married in 1999 and created a loving joint family with Roy’s daughter, Alicia. Together, the Siemens created RS Growers Supply. Roy had been in the horticultural business for more than 30 years and Robin joined right in to create the new company. The Siemens were already selling specific items that growers needed, such as pots and fertilizer so soil was the next logical product line. Roy wanted to find a soil that was unique and environmentally stimulating. In his search, he found the coconut. Coconut Coir, or ‘Coco Coir’ sparked his interest and he wanted to learn more about this remarkable product. “Coco Coir is a fruit that is renewable every 3-4 months and it grows great root structure for the plants because it naturally offers 20-25% air – which roots love,” said Roy. “It has amazing capacity to hold water and rehydrate easily when plants dry out in nursery pots.” This was the perfect soil Roy was searching for. Two years ago, Roy founded a new partnership called Tri Prime Solutions LLC (TPS) with a Dutch company Van Der Knaap and a Vietnemese company Plant Best. The main purpose of the new partnership was to supply the best coir in the world to western United States professional growers and soil companies. “We feel blessed to have great partners in Plant Best and Van Der Knapp,” noted Roy. “Our partners not only offer the best manufacturing of coir in the world, but they offer integrity in how we deal with each other and our customers and that is priceless to Robin and me.” Thijs Millinnar built Plant Best into a world leader in horticulture retail packaging of coir products, including coir pots and coir garden starter kits that are sold to big box stores. The other Tri Prime Solutions’ partner Van Der Knaap is headquartered in the Netherlands and is the largest coir processor in the world. They own or manage 14 different coir and peat processing plants around 8

the world with over 500 employees worldwide. They manufacture high quality potting mixes for growers across Western Europe and the rest of the key horticultural world including USA, Canada, Mexico, China, Korea, Japan, Courtesy Photo Columbia, Turkey, Kenya and 3 generations shown: Roy Siemens, Alicia Lovell, South Africa. Their International Robin Siemens and young Jack Lovell. Marketing Director Ludo van Alicia works for RS Growers Supply. Boxem is the key technical adviser to the large growers TPS is marketing coir to. Many companies are selling the coir over the internet and even some garden centers are starting to carry the mixes. Coir can be purchased by the block and it typically weighs 9-11 pounds each. To use these coir blocks, one simply puts the blocks in a wheel barrel and adds water. Once the mixture is stirred, it is ready to be used. One then should mix it with their garden soil; this lightens up the soil and brings the ability for the roots in the garden plants to receive more air and hold water longer below the ground surface. As more professional growers embrace this product, coir will be available to everyday garden enthusiasts. Living in Fallbrook, Roy and Robin are able to enjoy all the plant materials they have planted over the past 10 years on their half-acre. “We love plants, hydrangeas and succulents especially,” said Robin. “Roses, ornamental grasses, fruit trees, various palms are also enjoyed by us. We’ve never regretted our move to Fallbrook. If you love plants, Fallbrook is a great place to live – it has an amazing climate!”

Peter Hopkins uses infrared technology to help homeowners and horse owners identify problems and save money Peter Hopkins has been a local Bonsall business owner and building inspector for over 16 years. Eight years ago, he expanded his building inspection business by starting SoCal Infrared, a full service infrared scanning company. Infrared technology can be utilized to identify weak points of insulation in buildings, allowing for home and business owners to save on utility bills by making their heating and cooling systems more efficient. Infrared technology can also be used to identify the source of roof leaks, bringing down repair costs by discontinuing the need to tear up unnecessary amounts of shingle. Peter’s expansion into the realm of infrared imaging has brought him not only to homeowners and businesses, but animals as well. In 2007, Peter used thermal imaging to detect a fracture in the leg of the race horse “California Flag.” Without Peter’s help, “California Flag” wouldn’t have gotten the rest it needed to win the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint in 2009. Not long after his success in identifying the horse’s fracture, Peter was called upon by the San Diego Zoo to identify an as yet nameless injury in the leg of one of their elephants, Davi. Peter’s thermal imaging was able to detect a tendon injury that standard x-rays could not. Since then, Peter’s imaging technology has brought him to examine animals as exotic as zebras. Peter’s business savvy and experience with thermal imaging technology led to the opening of United Infrared, Inc., the largest network of certified thermographers in the world. According to the website, the company focuses on helping infrared thermography contractors start and grow their own businesses by offering “prearranged, negotiated discounts with equipment manufacturers” as well as offering modules that

operate as a kind of business start up kit; each module comes with specific national ad campaign strategies, training and marketing tools. The company has worked with many Fortune 500 companies and recently signed a contract with North America’s largest manufacturer of commercial and residential roofing, GAF. Despite an economy that has been on the decline, Peter has carved a niche, using thermal imaging to find a “hot spot” in the business world that has taken this Bonsall local on a journey that has included race horses, elephants and a new business whose work has spanned over 40 states and eight countries.

When it comes to designing furniture, Michael O’Brien’s imagination doesn’t just move in a straight line. SOURCEBOOK 2013

When it comes to designing furniture, Michael O’Brien’s imagination doesn’t just move in a straight line. Instead, his unique furniture-as-art embodies the designer’s visions in well-polished swoops and curves which are in turn charmingly anchored by veneers of hieroglyphic angles and ribbony slices of wood from the different forests of the world. And then, in a final, amusing pièce de résistance, O’Brien’s work tantalizes its admirers with “What on earth does it mean?” details of adornments such as primitive symbols, totems of pyramids, crackling rivulets of polished aluminum and stone, flying books, scattered bursts of tiny metal and glass squares and whatever else is capturing the artist’s ever curious fancy at the moment of creation. Local residents can see a masterpiece of O’Brien’s woodworking talents at the Fallbrook library where his gleaming “Orchid Table” has been on display for two years. Built primarily from pale bird’s eye maple and regular maple, ebony and aluminum, the oval 6-foot by 4-foot table stands inside the library entrance, greeting visitors with its ancient-Egypt-gone-galactic vibe. And don’t ask O’Brien, age 70, to classify his work into any particular art genre because he believes his art defies definition. 13

Shane Gibson Photo

“I really don’t know what art genre my work falls into,” said the self-taught artist with a slightly bemused shake of his head. “I’ve been told it’s a bit of everything—Art Deco, Art Nouveau, American Southwest, abstract, folk art... I don’t even know what to call it myself. The ideas just happen. That’s all I can say.” But form really does follow function with O’Brien’s furniture— not only are his tables and V-backed kitchen chairs amazing works of art, he says proudly that people have told him that the chairs are comfortable enough to make a Sunday brunch long and leisurely. O’Brien, who moved to Fallbrook in 1995 after he decided that he wasn’t going to endure another St. Louis ice storm, didn’t set out to be a furniture-maker extraordinare. In one of those swoops of fate when he was in his twenties, a broken leg actually set him on a new path. “I had some carpentry skills and I had been a sign maker and I think I had done something like 28,000 signs at $4 apiece before I broke my leg in an accident,” recalled O’Brien. “O’Brien...didn’t set “So I suddenly had no out to be a furnitureway to make money and maker extraordinare....a as it happened, a furniture broken leg actually set dealer asked me if I could him on a new path.” make an armoire. And I told him that I could do it even though I had no idea what an armoire was!” With some research, persistence and pure luck, O’Brien was able to build the piece and he delivered it to the furniture dealer who was very impressed. Until the next day, he said, when it was discovered that “I hadn’t known that the wood putty I had used to cover the nail holes would dry white, and the dealer was having to paint over all those white spots,” O’Brien laughed. “Luckily for me, though, he wanted me to build more furniture.” 14

Shane Gibson Photo

Such a can-do attitude has worked for the artist in other ventures as well, including designing and building his 3,400-square foot home on a Fallbrook hilltop, running his own cabinetmaking business, learning to metal craft sculptures such as a Captain Nemo-like aquarium and a school of flying fish which grace the

top of a cupola dome, jewelry making, creating elaborate stained glass windows, building the wooden mission-gothic style ceiling beams that transform a media room into an old time Hollywood screening room, working with stone and steel and even doing a painting or two a la artist’s brushes and canvas. Although he still gets an occasional commission to build furniture or cabinets, O’Brien, who lives by a weekly clock and follows his body’s circadian rhythms—or natural timekeeping system—spends most of his time building pieces to fill his home and working on his ever-growing list of creative projects. “I feel lucky,” said O’Brien, reflecting on how the events of his life and his artistic dreams have cosmically dovetailed. “Just the way I fell into doing furniture making for a living, moving out to this area because I was sick of Midwest winters and still being able to enjoy doing this kind of creative work. And that there is probably still thirty years worth of more creative ideas on my list just waiting in line to take shape.” SOURCEBOOK 2013

ometimes gardeners appear to be senators on opposite sides of the aisle. Vegetable gardening or flower gardening? Each will have their very strong opinions as to why they have chosen one or the other. But in the spirit of bi-partisanship, why not do both in the same garden? If taking such a grand leap into the other party’s dogmata is just a bit too scary, why not inch into it? If you are a vegetable gardener, create small arcs of annuals on the outside edge of each corner of the garden, creating a surround of color just as you would your mailbox. Flowers attract pollinators, which in turn pollinate tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and other fruit bearing plants. Flowers provide nectar and pollen to the beneficial insects which in turn prey on pests. Confuse insect pests searching for their favorite vegetable plants to feed upon by mixing up the beds with flowers. The

flowers will attract birds looking for seeds, but who are delightfully happy to settle for eating insects that are unwanted in your garden. This is especially helpful if you’re gardening organically! Whether your vegetables and herbs are being grown in big, raised beds, in window boxes or in containers, the same rules apply. We are always searching for a variety of color, texture and height. Lobelia, with over 350 species, is an ideal addition to any container garden, whether you’re opting for the trailing varieties, with billowing masses of blossoms or more compact bedding types that seldom exceed 6 inches in height. As they sport ½ to ¾ inch wide flowers that come in red, white and blue, a container filled with all lobelia could be a patriotic nod for your Fourth of July barbecue. Why not add snapdragons for height? Plant them in the back of your container, with a center of herbal plantings and a border of trailing lobelias. The dwarf varieties grow to about 10 inches, while the taller types grow to a height of 18-24 inches and come in a fantastic

array of colors from red to orange, yellow, lavender and white. The bright blue of bachelor’s buttons (also known as cornflowers) is attractive to pollinating bees. Candytuft, an old-fashioned annual, attracts hoverflies that are excellent pollinators. It also provides nectar for other beneficial insects and a cover for good-guy beetles. The easy-to-grow calendula feeds many predatory insects with its abundance of pollen, along with nectar for butterflies. The tall, fernlike cosmos add height and cheeriness to your late summer veggie garden. It’s a jack-of-all-trades, attracting bees, hoverflies, parasitic wasps, butterflies and many small birds. One favorite annual in a vegetable garden was also a favorite of the Aztecs, who believed that marigolds protected their crops. Planting a ring of them around the garden wards off parasitic nematodes. Plant them in amongst the vegetables and they will draw many pollinators and parasitic wasps. They will bloom all summer long, need little attention and come with pompom flowers or tiny, daisylike blooms. Keep in mind a cardinal rule of an interesting garden, whether it be a vegetable garden or a flower garden, is that variations in height will always be more interesting to view. Start with a border of sweet alyssum which hides the beetles that feed on insects and pests. The flowers are a rich source of nectar for a number of pollinators. Then add in vining and dwarf forms of nasturtium, which are strong pollinators and a great trap crop for aphids. When planted alongside cucumbers and squash, they confuse attacking pests. Top it all off with big, bouncy, colorful sunflowers. They attract many beneficial insects, produce nectar for butterflies and bring

birds to your garden to nosh not only on their seeds, but also on proximal insects. If you have created only Garlic chives flower gardens, flirt with the other side by incorporating edible herbs and vegetables into your beds. Bergamot, or bee balm, is a perennial herb with minty leaves and attractive flowers that will attract bees and hummingbirds. Garlic chives provide a light flavor and scent and look like tall clumps of grass; their pretty white flowers self-seed prolifically. Combine these with onion chives, which sport purple flowers. Kale and cauliflower add color, texture and taste, especially to your late-season garden. Eggplants have very attractive purple flowers. Lettuce and Italian parsley add texture and fullness to the garden and will allow you to eat your way through the color! And if you want not only a fresh and delicious vegetable as a centerpiece in your flower garden, but also a conversation-starter, plant the spinach Malabar where it can vine upwards, sporting tiny, purple flowers with beautifully thick green leaves. Pluck the leaves, rinse them off and pop them into your salad! Let’s join forces and recognize the assets of both vegetable and flower gardens. When the bill of fare includes color, texture, scent, attractiveness to bees, birds, butterflies and hummingbirds, as well as taste that enhances our dining pleasure, isn’t it one bill that simply must be passed?

Taken with

Toucans by Sandra Shrader


ost people like to think that they have some kind of master plan for their lives, but for Jerry Jennings fate came disguised as a pair of toucans in a San Fernando Valley pet store in 1976. A longtime bird lover who had raised finches, Jennings thought the male and female toucans, each adorned with stunningly oversized beaks and plumage of bright colors, would become gaga over each other. But to his surprise, the cage mates remained completely disinterested in each other and that was when he became aware that there was more than one kind of toucan species. “They were sold to me as a pair of the same species, but one of the birds was actually an Ariel toucan and the other was an emerald toucanet. That was an eye-opener for me about toucans,” explained Jennings, now a world-renowned expert and breeder of the crowdpleasing avians as well as being the owner of Emerald Forest Bird Gardens, located on forty acres in the woodland hills above Fallbrook. “I started doing research and asking questions and that was when I discovered there were so many different varieties of toucans, so I bought another male and female to pair up with the first two, started building larger outdoor cages in my one-acre backyard in Woodland Hills and things took off from there.” Although it wasn’t exactly that quick or simple of a learning curve for the proper care and feeding of the birds, two years later, Jennings achieved two world first breeding awards when the Ariel toucans became the first pair to breed in captivity, and days later, the emerald toucanets provided another first when they laid eggs. Encouraged by aviary officials from the San Diego Zoo and other zoos about the need to develop breeding methods for toucans in captivity, Jennings’ expanding passion for the charming birds motivated him to start searching for a larger piece of property. In the mid-1980s, he began looking all over California for the right place to create an outdoor breeding site, and by 1990, he purchased the Fallbrook site and began constructing outdoor cages that simulated natural environments. “This property was just what I was looking for because it’s in a semitropical climate that can accommodate these birds who are native to climates in Central and South America,” said Jennings, a now-retired 20

attorney who was also the founder of the American Federation of Aviculture and served as president of the organization for several years. “Not only that, I wanted

that has plenty of room to grow, a stream running through it and existing buildings for a nursery and birdraising facilities.” Today, Emerald Forest Bird Gardens, which breeds and raises toucans for zoos and private breeders throughout the world as well as for individual pets, is the largest toucan breeding operation in the country. The highly-lauded facility has been home to twenty-five species and 350 individuals, the world’s largest collection of captive toucans in a single place. The large cages are measured in “bird flight” feet and are usually nine feet high and range in size from eight feet by twelve feet up to ten feet by thirty feet. This provides plenty of space for a pair of birds to become compatible. They may take some time to get to know each other, ignore each other, fight with each other or become enamored with each other. When toucans do become simpatico, the male and female will sit together and the male will share its food of fruit and nuts with the female “much like a man might ask his date if she wants to share a glass of wine,” said Jennings with a smile. And toucans are monogamous, he added. The toucan family Ramphastidae includes several types of large “show stopper” toucan species which are recognizable by their black coats and colorful banana-shaped beaks. The birds use their beaks, which vary in markings from species to species, to pluck fruit in the

wild. Their beaks have also been studied by aerospace engineers for their unusually high impact strength, according to Jennings. Other species in the toucan family found at Emerald Forest Bird Gardens include the smaller toucanets and aracaris which are usually more exquisitely colored and have smaller beaks than the larger toucans. The bird gardens are not just limited to toucans, however. Parrots, cockatoos, macaws, tanagers and turacos are also bred at the facility. And guiding visitors into the somewhat hidden grounds are several dozen peacocks strutting their stuff while hawks soar across the treetops. With all those avian residents living in one location, it doesn’t exactly make for a soothing lullaby of birdland. It’s more like a peculiar cacophony of sounds like chihuahua barks, guttural throat clearings, shrieks, card shufflings, whistles, twitters, and mournful love calls across the canyon. Still, for Jennings, whose world travels have given him the chance to pet penguins in the Antarctic, pursue parrots in Peru and create conservation habitats in Costa Rica, all those feathered-friend greetings at Emerald Forest Bird Gardens sound like home, sweet home.

Dominic Savoca

Soldier and Victor WWII “Battle of the Bulge” by Nathalie Taylor


ocals know Dominic Savoca from his successful insurance business and his community involvement, including building the Bonsall Community Center. However, it isn’t well known what he did when he was young and fearless. Dominic, who will be 89 this year, participated as a soldier in the Battle of the Bulge during WWII. Dominic, or Dom, fought as a member of the 28th Infantry Division. (The division was called “The Bloody Bucket” because so many of them were killed.) Dom landed at Omaha Beach in July of 1944 and participated in the campaigns of Ardennes, Rhineland, Central Europe, Normandy and Northern France. He is the recipient of the Good Conduct Medal and the EAME Theatre of Operations Medal. Even though Dom was in the infantry as a commando, he was also taught to fly and flew reconnaissance missions in a L-4A (Piper Cub). He was drafted as a US Army PFC and then was promoted

to Corporal, then “Another memory that stands Technical Corporal. out in Dom’s mind is when he The ship that was walking alongside General carried Dom to George Patton who was riding a Europe was a ‘magnificent horse.’ ” specially outfitted passenger ship with little breathing room. For meals, they were required to stand in the mess halls and eat at very narrow tables. “The bunks were stacked in layers with only about two feet between them,” he related. The crossing was very rough. One night he was up on deck in the “stormiest sea” that he had ever seen when he witnessed a wave wash four men off the ship. Dom was close, but managed to stay on deck.

The ship docked in Wales, then he boarded another vessel for the short trip to Omaha Beach, where he landed in July of 1944. “There was quite a reception – machine guns, dynamite,” Dom recalled, “This was my first taste of war. We were in constant battle.” The 28th Infantry Division then moved inland. On December 16, 1944, Dom was in Wiltz, Luxembourg when the breakthrough

When he saw the German troops advancing over the hill and down the valley toward them, he marked his 20th birthday, having been born December 23, 1924. “The general then gave orders to break camp and that was the beginning,” Dom remembered. He was assigned full field artillery with a rifle, a 45 automatic and hand grenades. He also participated in hand-to-hand combat. In the Hürtgen Forest they dug trenches with slats of wood and fought a battle from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. “We carried rifles and machine guns, but the most important thing was your brain and your guts,” Dom reflected. At one point, when snow was piled high and the division was stopping for a night’s rest, a sergeant said to Dom, “Son you have to take your clothes off and get into your pouch [canvas duffle bag] and get under the snow.” The sergeant said it would keep him warmer. Another memory that stands out in Dom’s mind is when he was walking alongside General George Patton who was riding a

Dom estimated that there were probably 2,000 former soldiers in attendance. The princes circulated to each table and presented a plate and a commemorative coin to each veteran and told them, “If it weren’t for you we wouldn’t be here.”

Resurgence of Fallbrook

by Richard Kennedy


Angie Peters Photo


he Fallbrook community is an area hidden in the hills of inland North San Diego County and because of that is an attraction for those who want to get away from the fast-paced, sometimes complex life in more heavily populated parts of Southern California. After the first settlers, the Reche family, came to this location in 1869 from an area known as Fall Brook, Pennsylvania, many families followed suit to pursue their happiness. For many

years, Fallbrook was relatively unknown and rarely visited by people from nearby cities until it became a place for agricultural development, retirement living with open spaces and outdoor activities such as hiking, etc. Fallbrook has been known as the Avocado Capital of the World due to the many groves of Avocado trees, but many varieties of agriculture abound in this area. History abounds here too, such as

The Ultimate in Comfort, Shade and Protection...

the early railroad that brought many interesting people and personalities into Fallbrook. Let’s not forget the many nationally known artists that live and teach here at the Art School with an abundance of art on display both in public places and heavilyvisited art exhibits and shows. Over the years, the Fallbrook community has lived in relative obscurity and the people were content with letting time pass them by while the residents enjoyed a good life. Businesses were established only to serve the community needs and there was no interest in bringing large companies into the area nor were companies interested because it appeared to be just a quiet, agricultural-focused community. However, in the 1970’s and 1980’s changes were taking place such as investments in Avocado groves, purchases of large estates for retirement, and a communal spirit for the growth of families. Events such as the Avocado and Wine Festival started(now known as the Avocado Festival) and, a few years earlier, the Christmas Parade began putting Fallbrook on the map, at least in North County San Diego. Today the Avocado Festival attracts from 70,000 to 100,000 people on a single day and the Christmas Parade brings in 30,000 to 40,000 people. During this time, many new businesses flourished but still the community retained its “hometown” feel. A change was beginning, but at a slow pace, which was fine with most residents.

There are many things to do when in Fallbrook such as hiking or biking the many miles of trails, spend a few hours at the Grand Tradition gardens, browse some of the long-established shops in the Historic downtown section, tour the Historical and Gem & Mineral Museums and then enjoy some of the excellent restaurants. You never know, you might meet one those nationally-known artists that live in Fallbrook.

Francis E. Willard Fallbrook Historical Society Photos

n 1981, in an attempt to obtain information about the early hotel in Fallbrook known as the Francis E. Willard Hotel, Floyd S. Markham obtained the hotel’s parcel identification number from the San Diego County Assessor’s Office. The information included a document number of the Security Title Insurance Company.

A summary list of title transactions was secured from the Safeco Title Insurance office in San Diego. The first entry on the summary showed that “the land belonged to Francis W. and Mary E. Bartlett in 1885.” Then in 1887, the year construction began on the hotel, the names of Scott, Porter, Dougherty, Townsend and Bartlett appear in the record. In 1888 the names of P.M. Green and

that of the Fallbrook Hotel Company are added to the list. The Construction Company makes its first appearance. In 1895, the name “Hotel Bolivar” and G. G. Warrner also appear. In attempting to identify the hotel’s architect and designer, many have given credit to Stanford White, but a check of the files at the Serra Museum in San Diego established the fact that White was not even the architect of the Hotel del Coronado, as believed. The work was done by the Reid brothers, James Merritt and Watson. Charle’s Moore biography of Charles Follen McKim, ‘Life and Time’, written in 1970, states that the firm of McKim, Neal and White between 1880 and 1910 executed single projects only in Washington, Oregon and Nevada, in the West, one in California was delayed, one report states, for the lack of lumber; however it may have been the lack of money to pay for the lumber. A few years and several mortgages later, in 1894, the names of A. F. Cate and the Russ Lumber and Mill appears. From where did the original name of the hotel “Francis E. Willard” come, and who named it? In 1888 Francis E. Willard was the national president of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. It would appear that Francis W. and Mary E. Barlett (the original sub-dividers of West Fallbrook) were strong believers and backers of the Women’s Christian Temperance Union. Francis C. Van Velzer in his book In The Year 1900, a Nickel Bought a Lot quotes his father Gilvert M. Van Velzer, “We have never lived in a community that was so agreed on morality and temperance. Although California has no restrictive laws on gambling, liquor, selling and the like, yet these are not tolerated

here; all deeds prohibit the sale of liquor.” The records of both the Methodist and Baptist Churches show that Francis and Mary Bartlett donated the land on which these two churches were built and $700 to each. Therefore it is safe to assume that Francis and/or Mary played a large role in naming the hotel in West Fallbrook the “Francis E. Willard,” which some time later changed to Naples. Gilbert Van Velzer went on to state, “Our town is three years old; contains about 300 inhabitants; has two general stores; one hotel and stock subscribed for another to cost $12,000.” The newspaper Fallbrook Review for March 8, 1889, displayed a large ad for a splendid new hotel that appeared something like the following: Fallbrook’s New Hotel The Francis E. Willard Containing over 50 rooms Is now open for the reception of guests First class in All respects Terms $2 per day Special rates for families and those Remaining by the week or month W. M. Scott, Prop. Vic Westfall, in a biographical sketch, which appeared in the Fallbrook Enterprise, stated “My father worked in the hardware store for Bartlett and Scott, then bought it. When he and my mother began managing the Naples Hotel they turned the store over to me.”

Victor’s life was filled with many memories of his “beloved Fallbrook.” As a boy he helped out at the hotel and at times supplied the menu with quail and duck for the guests. He remembered a traveling dentist who provided Hotel Ellis Register dental work for the Westfall family in exchange for room and board at the hotel. Victor also remembered, with a chuckle, when a shocking development occurred: Mamie Tomlin was riding a man’s bicycle down Main Street with her bloomers exposed. Her father was a proper English gentleman who owned the Fallbrook Hotel on the northwest corner of Main and Alvarado streets. The records show that George F. and Laura (Woodbury) Westfall leased the Ellis Hotel and operated it for 14 years. In 1911 William S. Ellis, a soft spoken, sober, jolly, good man who was always helping members of his family and businessmen of the community, purchased the Hotel Naples and renamed it the Hotel Ellis. With the help of Adelle, his wife, daughters Nellie and Birdie, and a Chinese cook they made the dining room famous for its wonderful food. Local hunters were employed to

supply venison, duck and quail, which were regularly served to the guests of the hotel around a large Franklin Stove located in the middle of the lobby. The Ellis family entertained regularly and one of the highlights of the hotel’s social events was the New Year’s Party of Wednesday, Jan. 1, 1913. Thirty-four guests signed the register. Included were Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Ellis, Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Ellis, Henry Ellis, Lee Ellis, John Doyle, Rev. and Mrs. Eugene Burr, Lee Jennings, Freeman Larson, Ernest Rive, Ray Ellis, Mr. and Mrs. G. F. Westfall, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander, Dr. Morris Wilmott, E.C. Reader and one Yong Sing from Peking, China. It is said that when local folks teased him he would chase them, brandishing a meat cleaver. One account taken from a Fallbrook Enterprise newspaper article of a visit to the hotel is as follows: “John Stintin of Fallbrook first saw this community through a muddy, steaming windshield on a trip from San Diego to Santa Monica. The Stintin’s Locomobile touring car was leaking through its fabric top as they reached Escondido, but Mr. and Mrs. Stintin and son John Jr. did not care for accomodations there. They continued through Vista where they purchased gasoline and finally stopped at the Naples Hotel on a Sunday night. Stintin says they were ushered into the bridal suite in the cupola of the hotel. It was grandly furnished with a four-poster bed featuring a down mattress, and on the highly polished floor was a white bear rug. There being only one toilet on that floor of the hotel, a chamber pot was also furnished. A washstand in the room featured the usual pitcher and basin. The Stintins were

charged $2.50 per night; they stayed two nights because of the rain. They enjoyed the dining room, where everyone had their meals family style around a long table on the ground floor. Automobiles were scarce in those days so with the Locomobile in sight the men and their friends relaxing on the verandah of the hotel all asked for rides – Stintin obliged. Fallbrook itself boasted only dirt roads and wooden sidewalks. Stintin particularily remembers the Fallbrook Hardware Co., which still stood in 1912. Also the blue building on S. Main Street, which was a garage as well, was the stables, Stintin said. The rain finally stopped Tuesday morning and when the Stintins got ready to leave for their trip north, Vic Westfall, the son of the hardware store owner and hotel operator, presented them with $12 in payment for the Locomobile rides.” The hotel register was a collection of names from all over the world, Oliver Twist of London signed in on February 27, 1917; on Friday, Jan. 19, 1917, Theo. Roosevelt of Oyster Bay, N.Y. signed the register. William S. Ellis died in May 1923. Family and friends came from near and far to pay final tribute to a true Fallbrook pioneer. Adelle Ellis carried on the management of the hotel until 1925 when she sold it to Joe Smarr. Joseph B. Smarr and his wife purchased the Hotel Ellis in 1925 and operated it until Mr. Smarr’s death in 1929. Local resident Art Lenfers tells the story of Joe Smarr being quite a gambler. During those years there were high stake poker games played in the old hotel. It seems that during one of these games Joe had placed the deed to the hotel and a deed to Smarr’s 160-acre ranch in De Luz

into the pot on the table. As the story goes, after the game, which he somehow came out the victor, he gave the two deeds to his wife the next day, with the instructions that some day Hotel Ellis they would be valuable and she was not to sell or part with them under any circumstances, not even if he were to ask for them. Larry Yokum tells stories of playing in the old hotel after school. It seems that Larry had to walk home after attending Fallbrook Elementary School (later Maie Ellis School). His path led him past the old hotel and like any red-blooded young man, he just had to go into the old vacant hotel building to explore and play for a few minutes before going on his way. He stated that it was a lot of fun, - there was furniture still in there, along with old magazines, and the building was pretty much in one piece. One retired deputy sheriff tells about going up into the turret of the old hotel with a pair of binoculars while on duty since it was possible from that point to watch the “activities” going on in town.

usie Emory has been a Fallbrook resident since 1975. She’s seen the area grow and flourish into the thriving community that it is today. Her expertise ranges from ranches to luxury homes, residential and beyond. As a Fallbrook-area Realtor for the last 23 years, Susie Emory wears many hats. “I’m an adviser, a good listener, a “With low prices and caregiver, a problem-solver still historically low and sometimes I have to be interest rates the a mind-reader,” she says opportunity for buyers with a warm smile. In business as in life, is the most exciting it’s Emory treats others as she been in decades.” would like to be treated. “I handle my clients with care and constant attention,” she says. “I love meeting new people and figuring out what they need and want in a home purchase or sale. No two deals are the same. I welcome the challenge of meeting my clients’ needs.” Emory is good at what she does, as evidenced by her office wall of awards and many photographs of satisfied clients. Numerous testimonials, as well as repeat business and referrals, are a tribute to her honest work ethic and upbeat, positive outlook on life. “The current real estate market is a challenge,” Emory says. “However, the market has improved dramatically

over the past several months. The demand is high but the Susie Emory supply is low, so inventory is the key. This is the best market to sell a home in the last 6 years.” If you are currently looking to buy or sell your home, Emory greatly encourages doing so with the current opportunities the market has to offer. “Prices are still about where they were in 2002 and interest rates are still at historic lows. That combination provides the best buying opportunity in decades,” Emory says. With that knowledge, there is no better time than now, according to Emory, to jump into the best looking market in recent years. And with her experience, she would definitely know best. “It is universally accepted that home prices bottomed out last year and are steadily increasing. With low prices and still historically low interest rates, the opportunity for buyers is the most exciting it’s been in decades.” Emory knows north inland San Diego County like the back of her hand. She also represents clients in Riverside County with the same hard work and genuine caring. Call her to list your property or help you discover a new life in your dream home.

Hitching Post Malt Shop by Russ Vatnsdall


n the late 1940s the William Pearson family was enticed to this community by their new son-in-law, John Haworth. Johnny kept extolling the verities of Fallbrook, which was the home of his great grandfather Fred Fox, one of the early pioneers in this community. He urged his new bride’s family to consider the area in their plans to move from the metropolis of El Monte to a more rural town area. The parents, Bill and Mildred Pearson, had dreams of a malt shop or some such effort where they could work together as a family and become part of the community. Bill had been a carpenter. They looked around and decided that Fallbrook could be the place for them as it really didn’t have a malt shop. It was possible to get cold sandwiches at the counter in Harrison’s Drug Store. Or you could patronize the ‘workers cafe’ south of Alvarado on Main St., but those were located in an area of a bar and a pool hall, which were out of bounds for most teenagers. Thus Bill and Mid, as his wife was known, relocated in the late spring of 1947 to begin their dream of a malt shop. They brought

along Johnny and his bride Patti, the oldest son Jack and the youngest, Marion, who still had a year of high school to complete. A location was found in the new five and dime store building which Mrs. Miles was opening. It was in the 300 block of north Main Street across from the Safeway store. July 4th was the Grand Opening. A name was chosen, “The Hitching Post.” Now Fallbrook was considered a one-horse town but there weren’t very many horses here except for recreational use and there wasn’t even room for a rail out front, but the name seemed to fit just right. Mrs. Miles gave them just enough space to locate a counter, with 13 stools and space for the fountain and grill area, but there was nothing in the way of table or booth space. Mildred had room in the back for a stove from home, which she used to prepare daily specials. They had a French fryer, which was the first in town as I remember. They first blanched the potatoes and had a hand mounted slicer, which made real French fries, not the skinny frozen kind you get

today in the fast food joints. The specialty of the fountain was a frosty parfait, with the standard sundaes, malts and milk shakes. They might have been standards, but the Hitching Post seemed extra special. It was ‘standing room only’ most of the time. It was said that the few competitors in town ordered the Hitching Post hamburgers “to go” just to see what was in them that made them so popular. The Pearsons used only the freshest and the best ingredients that they could obtain, mainly from the Corner Grocery Store, run by Roy and Adabelle Solso across the intersection. This also helped the small local business families. The real facts will show that one of the best reasons for the Hitching Posts’ popularity was the staff that ran the place. Included, besides the outstanding chef Mildred Pearson, there were lots of good looking local girls. Now that was a drawing card! With the opening of Curt Donath’s new Mission Theater on Main, which employed more of the local girls, it was something of a problem for the young men to find a date as the girls were all working in the evenings. This didn’t stop one of our local lads, Don McLean, who decided to help out with the clean-up chores at closing time. He was there to impress Marion anyway. He got no pay, but could cook up anything for his dinner, which is said to sometimes include T-bone steaks. The real pay off came when Don left town to join the Navy and returned to claim Marion as his bride, in December 1948. That was well over 50 years ago now! Another reason for the Hitching Posts’ popularity was its community involvement. The Pearsons took an active part in organizations including the Quarterback Club in which the community was

building support for the High School and the athletic teams. They were part of a group of farsighted merchants and friends who got together and obtained lights for the football field. It was the first season, 1947, that the football games could be played at night so that everyone in the area could attend. This community spirit helped the football team gain the Championship of the North County League (CIF). The Pearson family all entered the community activities. On Pioneer Day, Marion was one of the princesses, Johnny took first place in the bronco riding and Jack was involved in the 2030 Club sponsored beard growing contest. The Hitching Post lasted from 1947 until 1952, “Mom just got tired of going seven days a week from 6am until near midnight,” said her daughter Marion. “They continued on in the community - but the Hitching Post was no more!”

Janie Hoffman

the Chia Seed Lady

by Dustin Emery


hia seeds are the newest health craze to sweep America, and Bonsall local Janie Hoffman is sweeping America right along with them. You may recognize chia seeds from the long-lived television advertisements touting their profound abilities to make small pieces of pottery appear to grow green hair (Just add water!), but now, with the help of Ms. Hoffman, these magical little seeds are making their way into beverages and snacks you can find at your local super markets and health stores. Ms. Hoffman is founder and CEO of Mamma Chia, the company that established the first-to-market chia beverage. This beverage has been certified by the USDA as organic and verified by the NonGMO Project as not containing any geneticially modified organisms. Each drink contains a whopping 2500mg Omega 3s, 4g of complete

protein, 25% of your daily fiber needs and 95mg of calcium, as well as antioxidants and minerals. The drink can be a healthy addition to anyone’s diet, but vegans and vegetarians who lack Omega 3s and complete proteins in their meals can benefit especially from the potential of the chia seed harnessed in this drink. When asked why she decided to make Bonsall the headquarters for Mamma Chia, Ms. Hoffman responded, “To walk in the avocado groves, especially this time of year with the trees so heavy with fruit, feels truly magical. It was easy to pick this special place as the home of Mamma Chia, as the vistas offer endless inspiration to create tasty and nutritious snacks and beverages that ‘seed your soul’.” She said that she and her husband still pinch themselves due to the dreamlike quality of the “beautiful and joyful setting.” BevNET, an online and print magazine dealing with the nonalcoholic beverage industry, named Ms. Hoffman “Person of the Year” in 2012 for the leadership and promotion skills she has shown in pioneering the field of chia beverages, and for having her product nationally distributed within the first year of her company’s inception. Beginning with health food stores, the Mamma Chia brand can now be found in traditional grocery stores such as Vons, Ralphs, Albertsons and Daniel’s Apple Market. BevNET honored the product with their “Best Non-Carbonated Beverage” award in 2011 as well.

Not only is she making a healthy mark on the beverage industry, but she’s using her company to leave an environmentally friendly mark on the world as well. Mamma Chia donates 1% of its gross sales to support farmers, community groups and organizations that build healthy local food systems. The business is also a member of the organization 1% for the Planet, a group of businesses that donate 1% of their sales to environmental groups around the world. Ms. Hoffman has her hands in more than the fate of her own organic, local Bonsall company. She is one of the founding members of Slow Money, a non-profit organization that seeks to promote investment in small and mid-sized organic farmers, local and regional food processing and distribution and improving nutrition. Through her pioneering work with the organic and nutritious brand of Mamma Chia, her donations to local and environmentally friendly farming and her efforts with Slow Money, one local Bonsall businesswoman has brought her vision of healthy, organic farming to a nationwide audience.

Yogurt Palace Fallbrook’s home away from home.


hat would F-R-I-E-N-D-S be without Central Perk, what would Seinfeld be without Monks and what would Norm be without Cheers? Yogurt Palace is Fallbrook’s home away from home. From the pictures on the walls, to smiles at the counter, it is no wonder so many residents have sought comfort in the walls of this hometown “My customers are establishment. How many places can you go to, forget my family... We never your wallet, and hear the let them forget how cashier reply, “No worries, truly important they just pay us next time.” are to us.” There will always be a - Cindy Avina, Owner time when we wish there was a Target just down the street, but we live in Fallbrook because there isn’t. We live in Fallbrook and trade in conveniences for little courtesies just like that; courtesies may seem small but often go a long way. At the Yogurt Palace you will never see an employee who is just there to get paid and get out, you will never be bribed by flashy signs and halfhearted marketing schemes. All they rely on is a quality product, amazing customer service, and small-town integrity. TED hosted a speaker several years back who explained the

evolution of business. They started with the importance of natural resources, but soon that Yogurt Palace is known for having a variety of fresh toppings was not enough. and flavors to choose from Businesses needed to be able to produce a needed commodity. Over time with the development of marketing and competition in the marketplace, the evolution continued. This was the beginning of branding which lead us through most of the twentieth century. Today, and for several years now, we have felt the process of evolution on our backs once again. Now, having a natural resource that is needed, with a trustworthy brand and a nice looking business is not enough. This new concept was never lost with the original founders of Yogurt Palace and is not lost on the women you see running the place today. What is different about Yogurt Palace? How have they been so successful in a small town where it is amazing for an unnecessary business to keep its doors open for two years let alone thirty-six? They made themselves necessary. “I have always said that family comes first, no matter what. I guess what some people don’t understand is that my customers are my family and maybe that is why we have been so successful. We never let them forget how truly important they are to us,” says Cindy Avina, Owner of Yogurt Palace.

Jackson’s interest in dealing with cases that involve catastrophic injury such as traumatic brain injuries stemmed from the interest he had in his father’s occupation. “I do a lot of brain injury litigation; my father was a neurosurgeon so it kind of got me interested in brain injury cases,” said Jackson. Jackson has truly made a name for himself and his firm. He has been named “Outstanding Trial Lawyer of the Year” in San Diego County five times in the last 10 years. Robert


takes tremendous pride in his work for improving the lives of others. Robert W. Jackson Of the many cases he has taken on, perhaps the most notable is the mass tort cases against SDGE after the devastating 2007 firestorm that left both Fallbrook and San Diego County with devastating damage, and leaving many residents picking up the pieces. Jackson was named the lead liaison attorney for the Rice Canyon fire victims in connection with the wildfire litigation. “I had responsibility for overseeing about 500 cases against SDGE, about 250 were my cases, it was the single largest case in the history of California, in terms of financial loss and compensation that SDGE had to pay,” Jackson said. Global settlements from the wildfire cases went on to reach the “billions,” according to Jackson. “It was important [to me], because it involved the residents of the community that I practice in, Fallbrook, Rainbow, Bonsall - our community was devastated by these wildfire cases,” said Jackson. Currently the firm has a staff of seven including three “extremely talented,” attorneys between his two offices in Fallbrook and Cardiff, which gives enough coverage to all areas of San Diego County. “We make a tremendous difference in people’s lives. The types of cases we handle, the individuals are typically at a crossroads, something very dramatic and tragic has happened in their lives, and the most rewarding portion of what I do is helping people put their lives back together.” When he isn’t handling, Robert takes the edge off by going surfing, although he “falls a lot more than surf,” scuba diving and traveling and he has recently taken up guitar playing and martial arts.

Brett Parkinson Helping the Individual


wo simple words are what make Brett Parkinson’s job as a lawyer completely worthwhile – “Thank you.” “It is the most rewarding thing to hear,” he says, as he describes when he knows that he has done his job well. As a personal injury lawyer, Brett is responsible for handling the cases of individuals whose lives have taken an unexpected turn, and ensuring that they receive the restitution they “If you don’t do right by deserve. He takes on cases, primarily against insurance your client, somebody companies, to recover really suffers.” compensation for any injuries, damages, or losses. After graduating from California Western School of Law in San Diego, he was given the opportunity to work as a law clerk for two federal judges, in both the trial court and the court of appeals. Through this he gained the experience and knowledge of courtroom operations. Afterwards, Brett delved into the court system further, serving as a prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “I viewed prosecution a little bit differently than some, I saw it as representing the victims of the crime as opposed to representing the government. When viewed from that perspective there are many similarities with what I do now as a personal injury trial lawyer.” Brett has completed the transition, now fulfilling his passion for serving others, knowing that he has the ability to really change someone’s life for the better. He wanted a change and found that opportunity when he joined Robert Jackson’s practice nearly two years ago. “I was looking for a professional challenge, growth, and I wanted to move away from government work.” He spent almost six years as a prosecutor but has found it even more of a challenge representing individuals, knowing their fate is in his hands. “When you report to a real person and not just to your

manager, there’s more on the line. If you don’t do right by your Brett Parkinson client, somebody really suffers,” he said. However, working side by side with a renowned attorney and a widely recognized firm has made his job that much easier. Brett says Robert is “Very supportive, he allows me to stretch and reach and grow in my own way while at the same time being there for any questions or concerns. Robert is big on experience and training, making sure we stay at the top of our game.” As a resident of Fallbrook, Brett loves the small town feel and the sense of community. “I’ve personally found Fallbrook to be very friendly, the ‘Friendly Village’ you know they call it, and it has been just that for me and my family,” he said. As part of his work, he has had the opportunity to help many individuals first hand, who were affected by the 2007 wildfires which left a vast amount of devastation throughout the area. “Folks who stayed in Falbrook after that are a resilient group, of people. A devastating fire like the Rice Canyon Fire is a frightening thing to live through and their stories inspire me,” said Brett. As times goes on, Brett is motivated by always evolving and continuously giving others a helping hand when they are down. “Hopefully, the more I’m able to do, the better I’ll be able to help people in times to come. The more experience I develop, the more people I can help, and that is the business that I am in,” he said. To take the edge off Brett enjoys being outdoors with his family. Together they snowboard, ride bikes and hike. With the motivation and inspiration of his wife, Brett’s family stays active, which keeps Brett busy both on and off the clock.

A Part of the Shane Gibson Photos


espite what you might have heard about the death of American ingenuity, there is a vibrant revolution in technology going on and Roy and Linda Luoma are thrilled to have a part in it. Fallbrook residents and owners of 3-D Engineering Corporation in Temecula, the Luomas have been successfully turning a mindboggling array of “Can this crazy idea even be done?” product development dreams of major corporations and government institutions into reality since 1998 when Roy first set the company’s gears into motion. Today, 3-D Engineering Corporation, which relocated from Rancho Bernardo to Temecula in 2005 and provides design development solution partnering along with manufacturing of precision machined parts, is keeping their globally-renowned clients ahead of the ever-increasing pace of the technical innovation curve. And that’s exciting, according to Roy who has been an engineer for 28 years. “What’s happening right now in the space industry, the medical industry, aerospace, telecommunications and all kinds of other industries is just amazing,” he said. “There are technological game-changers going on everywhere that will transform all those industries. They will transform the way we live with innovations such as being able to permanently change the color of your eyes or using an extreme ultraviolet light source (30 times smaller than commonly used lasers and hundreds of times more intense) which will assist microelectronics manufacturers in developing integrated circuits much smaller and even more powerful than what we see Jason Turbes, VP Manufacturing today.” Both Roy, founder and vice-president, and Linda, CEO and president of 3-D Engineering and 3-D Precision Machine, have their feet firmly on the ground when it comes to running both the engineering services and the machining/manufacturing businesses which, with 25 employees, operate synergistically in the same building. But gravity doesn’t slow them down when it comes to meeting the project demands of one of their most visionary clients. Three years ago, 3-D Engineering began a key relationship with SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies Corporation), a privatelyfunded American space transport company founded by PayPal and Tesla Motors co-founder Elon Musk. SpaceX, the first private company to successfully launch and 64

recover a spacecraft from orbit, made history last year when when it sent an unmanned cargo payload to the International Space Station. A second unmanned launch followed to supply the space station and some of 3-D Precision Marchine’s components were part of the enterprise. “Knowing that parts which we produced here at 3-D are up at the space station now is just thrilling for me,” said Linda, who manages the human resources, administrative and regulation compliance side of the business. “I love it that we are helping to push technology to the edge of the earth and beyond.” Over the years, 3-D Engineering has accumulated a long list of government agencies and corporate clients on its manifest as well. General Atomics, JPL, CareFusion, Abbott and General Dynamics are just a few of the global giants who have contracted with the Temecula company in addition to other communication, defense, microelectronic, aerospace and medical companies.

The company has turned its attention to navigating human inner space via medical technology too, said Roy, through prototype development and machining of miniature parts for robotic laparoscopic or minimally invasive “keyhole” surgery. “One of the ways to make robotic laparoscopic surgery even more effective is to have the ability to do in-situ tool changes to assist the surgeon while he or she is doing the surgery via camera monitoring,” said Roy. “But because the trocar (the hollow-cylinder instrument medically used to insert a port in the body for laparoscopic surgery) is usually 5mm to 10mm, finding a way to get the tools small enough to fit through the cylinder has been a challenge until now,” he added. ”Some the machining for the tools we do for the robotic tools is as tight as two ten-thousands of an inch!” When asked if there has ever been an engineering challenge that 3-D has had to turn down, both Linda and Roy proudly smiled, shaking “When asked if there has ever been their heads “no” at an engineering challenge that 3-D has the same time. But had to turn down, both Linda and Roy it often does take proudly smiled, shaking their heads perseverance and “no” at the same time.” patience on the part of clients, said Roy, because they are “investing in us to make their ideas feasible and that can very often take several years because external factors like changes in technology, political support and the environment can affect the process.”


One of the shifts in technological development that both Roy and Linda are noticing is an encouraging change in attitude among college students toward engineering, math and other sciences. Linda and Roy Luoma, owners 3-D Engineering Corporation “It’s been slow to happen, but we are seeing more young people moving away from getting degrees in business and finance,” said Roy, “and more— although not as much as we need in this country—are interested in careers in engineering and math. And still more young people are taking up vocational training and becoming machinists.” The long-term success of 3-D Engineering Corporation is proof that engineering is still very much alive in the American “can do” spirit, said Linda. “There is a lot of technological innovation going on and I am so glad that 3-D has been and is contributing to that,” she said. “Just as with our contribution toward furthering space travel, I feel like the sky is the limit.” 3-D Engineering Corporation is located at 42132 Remington Avenue, Temecula, CA 92590.

Osgood, to build a railroad through the San Luis River Valley. Thankfully he refused and in 1890 the area was renamed Bonsall. A lot has changed since the 1800s! Bonsall now has a burgeoning business corridor with the widening of State Route 76, the upcoming San Luis Rey River Park, a new Palomar College annex and residential and commercial development soon appearing at the intersection of Interstate 15 and 76, all which will increase business! Bonsall is identified by the River Village Shopping Center and the Bonsall Village Center.

Bringing Water to Kenyans

At the site of a village water project, children surround Larry Saunders

by Nathalie Taylor

ater is one of the elements on earth that no one can do without; and Larry Saunders, age 80, has devoted much of his life to making sure that many Kenyans have water on tap. Larry earned a BA in engineering from Cal-Aero Technical Institute and an MBA from the University of Denver. He is using both of his degrees to help the Africans obtain a better life. After he retired from a 30-year career with Otis Elevator as an engineer, Larry and his wife, Alice, moved to Fallbrook. It was there that he was inspired to work in Africa. His church’s mission committee, the Fallbrook United Methodist Board of Global Ministry, sent a mission team to Africa and he was a part of that team. Larry was familiar with Africa as he had worked there during his employment with Otis Elevator. In 1992 the couple spent three months in Kenya developing a water system, which they completed the following year. The house where they lived was comfortable, but with one drawback – bees were living in the structure walls. Larry was told that the bees had been living in this house since the 1930s. “Sometimes it was hard to sleep because you could hear them humming,” he noted. In the 2000s Larry and Alice continued their ministry with a project in Maua, Kenya, a city with a sprawling population of over 450,000. There they began working on establishing a septic system for the 280-bed Maua Methodist Hospital, which was located on the northern slope of Mt. Kenya at about 5,000 feet. Even though the hospital had 280 beds that still wasn’t enough. “I had seen as many as three in one bed,” Larry noted. With that many people in one building, a working septic system SOURCEBOOK 2013

was definitely a priority. It took five years to complete the project. Larry and his team built seven “water points” (places to get water) at the Kenya Methodist University, which has over 10,000 students. One Kenyan village had no water at all, so the first thing Larry and the team had to do was scour the countryside looking for a water source. During these journeys they were protected by a team of “elephant rangers” with rifles. After the water source was discovered, the team built a dam for irrigation water and drinking water, but also created water troughs for the cattle. The locals were so thankful for all of the work they did, a celebration was held and the women of the village, dressed in grass skirts, performed a dance for them. Larry’s most recent trip was in June/July of 2012. In the last 20 years he has traveled to Kenya 13 times. “It has been a long time and I have seen a lot of changes,” Larry said, “but the changes have all been good.” After spending so many years with the Kenyans he has definitely established a bond with the people. “Having seen families grow, the daughters marry, the children come and the grandmas die – makes it all worthwhile. I can’t express how Larry Saunders at a “water point” at deep the feeling is to help these Kenya Methodist University. (His team built seven water points at the university.) people.” 73

On the Cutting Edge of Learning to Live a Productive, Healthy & Life


by Laura Taylor


here is a new resource available in Fallbrook starting April 15, 2013. Children ages 8-18 can enroll in an extracurricular course at The Edge Life Skills Center. The Edge is a fun and flexible, proactive educational program which focuses on learning about healthy attitudes, people skills, goal setting and success in all areas of a young person’s life. “At The Edge, one of the focuses is to teach students how to apply various living skills into their current life. Positive attitude and emphasis on communication are some of the tenets that the Edge promotes in the program. The structured program is only one hour every week over a period of a year and the center is open during the week after school. Other issues are addressed as well, such as how to stop a problem before it becomes a problem,” said Tod Cunningham, co-founder of The Edge. Cunningham is a certified prevention specialist and has been involved with the drug and alcohol addiction industry for ten years. Some areas of importance that are offered within the program, are: • Accountability and the courage to address responsibility; • Relationships (parent, sibling, friend, dating and intimacy) • Emotions: sadness, joy, anger, bullying • Fun stuff!: artistic skills, games and field trips. • Self-defense and finding out just how our brains work • Attitude, manners and etiquette • Success and striving for excellence; goal setting • Dealing with pressure • Anger management • The ability to apply these concepts to daily life Tod and his wife Sharae are local residents and want not only their children, but all of our community’s children, to be safe in school and have a fun place to socialize and learn important life skills that might be overlooked in the generic academic curriculum. “When I come home at the end of a day, I have about three hours of time with my sons. I do not want that time to be spent educating them about what they could better learn in an environment such as The Edge, which would group them with peer support, in a comfortable and enjoyable surrounding.” At The Edge, one of the goals is to support the parental guidance that exists at home, although with a more proactive approach than just having a facility where these young people can hang out together. “Our ultimate ambition 76

is to help kids grow up happy and healthy in Fallbrook,” said Cunningham. “I got tired of reading about drug busts Tod Cunninham, co-founder of The Edge, shown with his family. that were so close to school environments. I believe that The Edge has the capability to offer solutions to problems before they even become problems.” Krista Alexandra, one of the instructors at The Edge, has been employed in the school district for a long period and is currently a nurse at La Paloma Elementary, in Fallbrook. The Edge is not the place for troubled youth, as there is a zerotolerance policy implemented. Parents may halt the program at any time, if there is a need for absence. It is a habitat that offers a safe and secure environment for children who want to be associated with a healthy lifestyle and learn life skills which are taught with patience and encouragement, yet in a fun and easy-to-learn method. The Edge is also a place to learn how to deal with the obstacles of general peer pressure involving a variety of subjects, such as substance abuse influence, bullying and many other challenges that one encounters in daily life. The base of the program stems from the life skills of having a positive attitude, strong communication skills with parents, teachers and peers, dealing with peer pressure, goal setting, responsibility and accountability, leadership, character, people skills and success. Through entertaining activities, students will learn skills that they can work on. (considered “homework”). After school ends for the day, there are many children who have little or no parental supervision for a while or no extracurricular activity. Open on weekdays, from 2-8, and on weekends, this is a perfect opportunity to be surrounded by their peers and learn life skills in a fun atmosphere, (which enables the child to absorb concepts faster), rather than the alternative, which is sometimes a negative environment. There will be role playing and “how to handle” scenarios that inevitably will arise in real life. After contacting their office, they will set up an appointment for enrollment. Call 760-600-5148 to learn more about the program.

drugs in the Workplace? by Ashley Tousignant & Dustin Emery


rug use in the workplace has the potential to bring down productivity by increasing errors, creating an uncomfortable environment for employees and increasing general absenteeism and tardiness. For many employers, the fear of falsely accusing an employee of illicit drug use may keep them from identifying and removing those employees that bring down productivity with bad habits, but the signs can be glaring when you know what to look for. There are many factors that should lead to a reasonable suspicion of drug use in an employee, although it is important to note that recognition of only one is not a solid basis for such suspicion. One method of detection, as described by the employee assistance program provider Besinger, Dupont & Associates is the observation of BABS: Behavior, Body Odor, Appearance, and Speech. Behavior in an employee that is considered suspicious would be difficulty walking straight or frequently bumping into things in the office, laughing at inappropriate times, as well as sudden emotional swings or upheavals. Qualities of appearance that are considered suspicious are unusually disheveled hair, skin, nails or clothing. Red or glazed eyes and tremors or unusual shaking are also qualities of appearance that may be cause for suspicion. Suspicious body odor consists of the scent of alcohol or

“For many employers, the fear of falsely accusing an employee of illicit drug use may keep them from identifying and removing those employees...but the signs can be glaring when you know what to look for.” drugs on the body or breath of the employee. Incoherent, slurred, loud, pressured or aggressive speech are all verbal signifiers that drugs or alcohol may be an issue with an employee. An employee who habitually arrives late or leaves early, is frequently absent on Mondays or Fridays, uses sick time an inordinate amount, extends their lunch break beyond what they should or collects a great deal of unexplained absences may also be a candidate for suspicion. Irresponsibility and job performance that declines in quantity or quality could also be indicators of 78

alcohol or drug use. Other signs that are easily visible are poor personal hygiene, a frequently fatigued appearance, frequent stomach issues and the deterioration of oral hygiene. As an employer or an affected employee, it is important to document your suspicions. Describe the time and place of the suspicious activity, as well as how it has negatively impacted the workplace. Then, if you have an HR department, contact them for further investigation.

Even heredity can play a role in it and stick your fingertips in there. in nail strength, but environmental It really will work better if the nails factors and nutrition are a lot easier to aren’t layered with polish, but it will help tackle than changing your ancestors! anyway. For a really bad case, you can do it at by Dr. Don Lewis Our nails are made of the same proteins as skin night and then put your hands in gloves designed and since we all know how skin loses moisture in these for this purpose or old woolen gloves you are no longer cold winter months, it makes sense to protect your nails as you fond of anymore. Yes. Go to sleep with slightly oily fingertips. It would your skin. We must take into account that many people really helps. Be careful to file your nails in only one direction, and drink less water in the winter, since they perspire less, and that isn’t only use the finer side of the file or emery board. Invest in those good for your overall health, much less only your nails. In addition, ugly yellow gloves for dishwashing and treat yourself to a new set the oil glands don’t secrete as much during the winter, so that’s of good (not cheap) gardening gloves for the spring. To your health! double-trouble. When you add in the fact that with all the germs going around, we are encouraged to wash our hands often as well, you can see how this is a set-up for problems. High quality alcoholfree, Vaseline or lanolin-based hand creams are best used freely. I really prefer that you obtain your vitamins and minerals from healthy foods, because supplements are not always effectively or completely absorbed. Some even have a petroleum-related base, which can’t be digested, so that the vitamins are not taken up correctly. The B vitamins are the biggies! They are found in abundance in lean meats, poultry, seafood, dairy products and eggs, as well as in beans, bananas, whole grains and best in green leafy vegetables, other than iceberg lettuce, which has about “zip” of anything. Vitamin A is essential and leads to the production of the vital natural skin oils. Carrots, squash, sweet potatoes and pumpkin are a few of the natural sources. With vitamin C, most of you know of juice sources, but green peppers, cantaloupe, broccoli and spinach provide that too, as well as giving you all those B vitamins. Don’t forget your mega 3 oils. Use olive oil in cooking, in salads, and eat fish twice a week. Salmon and tuna are best, but others are good as well. When it comes to supplements, you get what you pay for. Go to a pharmacist for starters and read the labels. Liquid supplements may often be better absorbed. Some cheap vitamins just “pass right through.” Yes, nothing beats a colorful plate of vegetables. Believe it or not, the chemicals in nail polishes may sap moisture from your cuticles and therefore lead to nail problems. You might need to let the polish wear off, clip your nails short, and start over. Naked nails can be attractive if gently buffed, having been nurtured by a healthy diet. SOURCEBOOK 2013


Fallbrook man taps his childhood, combat service, Christian faith in Murrieta

counseling practice

by Tim O’Leary

“(Wright’s) combat experience gives many of his military clients an assurance that he truly grasps the horrors of war and the tensions of always living on the edge.”



obert Wright draws from a deep well – a strained childhood, combat service and Christian faith – as he works to heal hurting marriages and families. Wright brings a rare combination of skills and personal experience to his work as he approaches his 20th anniversary of private practice as a marriage, family and child counselor. He also straddles two counties – as a resident of Fallbrook who practices his craft in Murrieta – as he approaches his 70th birthday. “It has all rounded out the spiritual dimension of who I am,” Wright said in a recent interview during a break between clients. Wright noted it was his wife who suggested that he become a counselor, a career shift that occurred after he served in the Navy, worked in pharmaceutical sales and raised money for a Georgia-based international health organization. But the stage was set decades earlier when, as a child, he took it upon himself to help his parents cope with some of the emotional challenges they faced. Wright said he did not know his mother was ill until he returned home from school one day to hear a Catholic priest explain that she had died of alcoholism. Wright was 12 years old at the time. His mother was 44. “Growing up hard was commonplace then,” Wright recalled. The Vietnam War interjected another harsh reality when Wright came of age. He was drafted, but did not resist service because his family had deep ties to the military and a relative was part of the first wave of Americans to storm Normandy’s beaches

during World War II. “I guess you could say that (military service) was in my DNA,” he said. The draft launched Wright into flight school and into Vietnam as a helicopter pilot. There he was assigned to high-risk rescues of American pilots who were shot down over land or water. He was a target of gunfire while in the air and mortar fire while on the ground. His squadron was involved in about 200 combat missions and it was credited with rescuing more than 150 downed pilots. Wright was decorated with medals for his valor and his service. His next key assignment was less risky, but equally mesmerizing. His duties in Navy public relations included work as a press secretary to six returning prisoners of war. That Operation Homecoming assignment thrust Wright into TV and celebrity circles that few service members ever experience. Wright’s military service also included a stint

Robert Wright flew this helicopter in Vietnam.

as a recruiter who provided stunt-laced flights to prospective pilots. “What a job. It was fabulous,” Wright said of his military experience. “I packed a lot into those eight years.” After the military, Wright helped sail a 36-foot boat from Maryland to the Virgin Islands. A bicycle trip took him from Del Mar to Delaware. He built upon his previous college course work and earned a master’s degree in marriage, family and child counseling. He became a Christian and met his soon-to-be wife at a Christian learning center. Along the way, Wright and his wife raised five children. Wright’s initial professional forays into the counseling field – which he said “really honed my skills” – were at family life and adoption centers in Hemet and Oceanside. He currently sees about 50 clients a week in his private practice. “Counseling is an art form,” Wright said. “It isn’t easy. You have to know how and when to talk and to listen. It’s a challenge.” Wright estimates that about 15 percent of his clients are military veterans or active duty personnel or their spouses or families. He said his combat experience gives many of his military clients an assurance that he truly grasps the horrors of war and the tensions of always living on the edge. “The guys are really encouraged when they know I’m a vet,” he said. “In (counseling) they will talk to me. I’ve had guys unload some heavy stuff in here.” While those clients typically struggle with the same emotional difficulties as their civilian counterparts, infidelity, anger management, traumatic shock, suicide and pre- and postdeployment pressures often run rampant. “My heart goes out to them,” he said. About 50 percent of Wright’s clients seek him out because of his Christian faith and counseling approach, he said. His resume notes that training in Biblical counseling and self-confrontation round out his educational background. “My door is open to anybody,” he said. “I am an optimist and I see in people an opportunity to change. I like to get them out of the victim mentality and move them into how we can change.” Robert Wright can be reached by telephone at 951-304-0882.

Alleviating Your Child’s Asthma Symptoms

by Seema Aceves, M.D., Ph.D. Rady Children’s Healthcare

Over 10 million children have been diagnosed with asthma in the United States and 7 million children still have asthma. Boys are more often diagnosed with asthma than girls and non-Hispanic black children were the most likely to ever have been diagnosed with asthma. There is no cure for asthma but there are effective treatments and some children will outgrow their asthma. As such, it is important that parents be proactive in preventing, managing and alleviating their child’s asthma symptoms. Although asthma attacks can be very serious, there are many ways to prevent and control symptoms. Engage with your child’s physician to establish a personalized asthma management plan. Your child’s written asthma management plan should describe medications and measures to take in order to ensure that asthma interferes with your child’s daily life as little as possible. Every child’s asthma triggers and symptoms are unique. Common asthma triggers include upper respiratory infections, mold or pollen, pet dander, dust mites, air pollution and tobacco smoke, strong perfume and cleaning products, changes in air temperature and exercise. Medications that are used for asthma include inhaled corticosteroids, oral leukotriene inhibitors, long and short acting beta-agonists and biologic agents such as anti-IgE.

Allergy Induced Asthma 70 percent of asthmatics also have allergies. Allergies can trigger asthma symptoms. It’s important to know what your child is allergic to and how you can prevent exposure to allergen triggers. Provide an allergen-free environment by using a HEPA filter to capture pollens and mold spores, limiting pet dander, having special dust-proof mattress and pillow covers and washing bed linens weekly in hot water, not letting others smoke in your home or car and avoiding the use of strong scents. Exercise Induced Asthma All children need exercise to stay healthy. Children with asthma may experience coughing, wheezing, chest tightness or shortness of breath during or after exercise. Exercise induced asthma symptoms can be prevented by allowing your child to use their rescue inhaler before exercise. Exercise induced symptoms can be worse during times of high pollen and pollution levels or when your child has a cold and also if the air outside is cold. Speak to your child’s physician if you have questions about your child’s asthma or allergies. If you have questions about finding a pediatric Asthma, Allergy and Immunology specialist in your area please give us a call at (877) 885-1246. Seema Aceves, M.D., Ph.D. is a pediatric and adolescent Allergy and Immunology specialist at Rady Children’s Hospital - San Diego and an associate professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at University of California, San Diego.

Dr. Richard Goble Exceptional Smiles through Exceptional Dentistry


he only way to do great work is to love what you do,” said Steve Jobs. Richard Goble, DDS, loves what he does and it shows in the expert work that he performs on each one of his dental practice patients. He feels that cosmetic dentistry can improve one’s image, and in turn, boost confidence. “We have a wonderful team and we are here to help our patients,” he remarked. Dr. Goble’s dental practice “Cosmetic dentistry can is not just about teeth – it’s improve one’s image, about people. He enjoys and in turn, boost getting to know his patients. confidence.” The minute that anyone steps in the door to the warm, inviting waiting room, they feel at home. His office is equipped with advanced technology, including digital x-rays and a 3D pan which pans through the mouth to give a three dimensional view of the entire mouth. One of the benefits of the 3D pan is that it allows Dr. Goble and his staff to differentiate between the various diseases of the mouth. “It is the best way to get a complete diagnosis,” Dr. Goble noted, “It also allows us to put implants in and virtually see where they will go.” It pleases Dr. Goble to see the satisfaction that patients feel after coming in. “Many are, at first, very apprehensive, but we have the ability to make top quality crowns that last a long time – in one appointment.” These crowns are bonded and beautiful. There

are advantages to making same-day crowns. Patients skip the series Dr. Richard Goble of appointments needed for traditional crowns; and they also avoid the uncomfortable feeling of wearing an ill-fitting temporary cap. Dr. Goble has been making a difference in the lives of his patients through dentistry for 37 years. It was a life-long dream of his because his father was a dentist and he could see that he enjoyed his work. Dr. Goble earned his DDS degree in 1976 from the University of the Pacific Dental School, and then continued his education at the post-graduate dental school – Las Vegas Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry (LVI). Because of his training, Dr. Goble is adept at advanced techniques in cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry. After Dr. Goble completed his dentistry degree he joined his father Dr. Gaylord G. Goble in his Beverly Hills practice. But, in 1991, searching for a more peaceful, rural atmosphere, Dr. Goble and his family moved to Fallbrook where he established his practice. Getting that perfect smile has never been easier. Just pick up the phone and call 760-728-2661. Also, find out how Dr. Goble’s patients rave about their treatment at the website:

Natural Ways to Ease Arthritis Pain A

leading cause of disability in the United States and elsewhere, arthritis can be a debilitating disease. Pain and stiffness are the leading symptoms, and millions of people seek relief from arthritis every year. Contrary to popular belief, arthritis is not a disease of old age. The Arthritis Foundation says one in every five adults has arthritis, two-thirds of whom are under the age of 65. In a 2008 Canadian Community Health Study, 15.3 percent of Canadians aged 12 or older reported a diagnosis of arthritis. Even children can suffer from arthritis. A complex family of musculoskeletal disorders, arthritis consists of more than 100 different diseases that destroy joints, bones, muscles, cartilage, and other connective tissues. This can compromise physical movement and lead to pain. Arthritis may result from the wearing down of joints and connective tissue through repetitive movement or injury, but it also may be the result of an autoimmune disease. Rheumatoid arthritis, for example, is caused by the body’s own immune system attacking

the membranes around joints, particularly in the hands and feet. Treating a complex condition like arthritis is not always easy. Treatment of arthritis, which has no cure, typically involves reducing pain and improving mobility. While pain medications can be prescribed to treat arthritis, there are other more natural ways to handle arthritis as well. •Eat foods that reduce inflammation. Arthritis causes inflammation in the joints and connective tissues, so it makes sense that reducing inflammation could ease symptoms. A number of foods, including tart cherries, have been found to reduce inflammation. According to research from Oregon Health & Science University presented in 2012 at the American College of Sports Medicine Conference in San Francisco, tart cherries have the highest antiinflammatory content of any food.

The antioxidant compounds – called anthocyanins – in tart cherries have been specifically linked to high antioxidant capacity and reduced inflammation at levels comparable to some well-known pain medications. Spinach, walnuts, garlic, and broccoli also can reduce inflammation. • Use hot and cold treatments. The University of Washington School of Medicine says hot and cold treatments can reduce swelling, relax muscles and relieve pain. Cold packs can numb sore areas and should be used when symptoms come on suddenly. Heat sources, in contrast, can help ease pain gradually and limber up tight joints and muscles. Always use a towel or barrier between a cold or hot pack and the skin to avoid injury. • Exercise a few times per week. Although it may hurt to move around, frequent exercise can actually be beneficial in the long run. Low-impact exercises like walking, swimming and cycling three times a week can help to keep joint pain at bay. Always consult with a doctor before beginning an exercise regimen to find out if it is right for your condition. Once you get the green light, start out gradually. If you are experiencing pain for more than an hour after a workout, your workout was too much for your body to handle and you need to lighten the load during your next workout. • Lose weight. Being overweight can put added pressure on joints and cause more pain. Shedding a few pounds may be all it takes to get substantial relief from pain associated with arthritis. Many natural therapies can effectively alleviate arthritis pain. Talk to a doctor if your symptoms are affecting your quality of life.

The House on the Hill The New Palomar Medical Center


early ten years ago, Palomar Health conceived an idea to build a health system for the future. The first piece of the master plan would be a new hospital infused with a sense of healing, innovation and flexibility – a place built entirely around the needs of patients and their families and a place where highly skilled physicians and staff are provided every capability to deliver their finest care. Today, that once hopeful idea stands high on a hill in Western Escondido and is a testament to forward-thinking, generosity and the desire to meet the medical needs of a growing community. The new Palomar Medical Center opened its doors for care on August 19, 2012 – making it the first new hospital in North County San Diego in more than 30 years. The Journey In 2004, taxpayers supported a $496-million construction bond, known as proposition BB. Their nod of approval allowed for the development of a master plan that would help shape the future of health care throughout Palomar Health’s 850-square-mile district. The vision for the new Palomar Medical Center crystallized through an extensive planning process involving physicians, nurses, staff, volunteers, community leaders and health-care futurists who voiced heartfelt opinions and proposed creative, beyond-the-box solutions. As expansion plans evolved, the concept of sustainable and flexible health-care design was adopted. This innovative approach would provide for the best healing environment while reducing environmental impact, optimizing patient safety and creating a facility that would stand the test of time. The result is a 740,000-square-foot architectural and technological masterpiece. Patient Rooms One of the most highly anticipated features of the new facility is the all-private patient rooms. Each room averages 320-square-feet and includes a private bathroom, family visiting area and sleeper couch. A bedside control panel allows patients to manage their own environment, change lights, adjust temperature or airflow, raise or lower their window shades, use the flat screen television

or call their nurse. Distributed nursing stations located outside every patient room enable nurses to be closer to the bedside and to respond more quickly to patient needs. For families, numerous family consult rooms are available for loved ones to speak privately with a physician, spacious visitor lobbies and terraces provide respite and an inviting Terrace Café offers a wide variety of tasty dining options. Emergency and Trauma Care Expanded emergency and trauma services were a cornerstone of Proposition BB. The new Trauma Center and Emergency Department is designed for direct access to prompt care. Two new trauma suites are configured for three treatment stations each, but can accommodate up to five patients each in the event of a major emergency. The adjacent Emergency Department has 44 treatment rooms divided into three bays. Healing Environment From the moment you step into the new Palomar Medical Center, you will recognize that you have entered a peaceful, healing environment that rivals that of five-star hotels. Research shows that exposure to natural light helps to speed up the healing process. Rain or shine, night or day – patients, families, physicians and staff can enjoy outside views without ever leaving the building thanks to expansive windows, skylights, solar tubes and accessible outdoor terraces on every floor. Innovations for Today, Tomorrow A primary design goal was to build a facility that can easily adapt to future technologies and innovations. One example is the advanced Surgery and Procedures department where the use of open floor plates and minimal vertical obstructions provide for easier modifications to operating rooms as the practice of medicine changes.

A Heart by Julie Reeder

While everyone believes children deserve a chance at a healthy life and a bright future, one person who is dedicated to giving children that chance is Kimberly Zember.

Kim was raised in Fallbrook as the youngest of three children, and her family’s constant loving support helped mold her into the person she is today. According to Debbie Zember, Kim’s mother, “Even when Kim was a child, she dreamt of playing with the children in Africa.” Following her high school graduation, she began a career in real estate. Although she was blessed and achieved monetary success in that field, she knew that she was not fulfilling her true purpose. On a whim in 2007, she traveled abroad to visit a friend in Ethiopia who changed her life. Her long-time friend, Fran Jones, said, “The overwhelming passion that Kim felt in Ethiopia while serving the needy convinced her that her true purpose in life was to help serve those in need.” Kim met two Ethiopian natives while she was there, Nikodemos and his wife, Wideneshe. This couple felt it their duty many years ago to help impoverished children within their

village. Years prior to Kim’s travels, this couple began providing whatever amount of education they could to nearby children, as well as sharing the scarce food they had. Kimberly founded Unforgotten Faces shortly after that first trip. After much prayer and consideration, she made the decision to move to Ethiopia with a friend, to help Nikodemos and Wideneshe develop the children’s project and further relations with the Ethiopian staff and children. Kim’s friend Fran said, “They also wanted to ensure every donation was used in the best possible way. With the Lord as their foundation, these relationships flourished. After living there for several months, they returned to the U.S. and began to spread the word about the organization, in order to raise the necessary funds to support this children’s project.” In the following years, Kim made many trips back and forth to continue work on the project.

or fChildren In the summer of 2012, Kim planned a mission trip with the support of St. Peter the Apostle Church, which took 19 high school students and young adults across the world to see Unforgotten Faces’ work in Ethiopia. The missionaries’ lives were all changed by that ten-day trip. Fran said, “Kim’s continually growing faith allows her to be ready for changes in her life, both big and small. Kim is now permanently living in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, continuing to help develop the children’s project to greater levels.” Kim’s dedicated work created Unforgotten Faces with the vision that it will continue serving others in need with countless compassionate volunteers in this country and abroad. Unforgotten Faces provides support in the development, management, finances and logistics of the Ethiopian’s children’s project. It strives to continue this couple’s dream. Unforgotten Faces currently helps by providing an educational foundation, hot daily meals, water and basic medical care to 164 children enrolled at a children’s project in the village of Kechene. Without these basic necessities fulfilled, hope for a better future is often unachievable. In addition, Unforgotten Faces provides salary for the Ethiopian staff at this children’s project. They pay fair


Ethiopian wages and currently have 16 local staff members. While the Ethiopian-filled positions are paid, the work in the United States operates solely by volunteers who donate their hearts and talents to serve the greater human good. The hope for these children is that they will grow up with the opportunity to follow the vision God has put in their hearts. The hope is this “better” start will lead them to be a positive influence within their country and the world.

“The hope for these children is that they will grow up with the opportunity to follow the vision God has put in their hearts.”

in Public Places by Stephanie C. Ocano

Looking to discover something new? Spend time with your loved one enjoying public art that Fallbrook has to offer. Designed to create artistic harmony between buildings, landscapes and open spaces, Art in Public Places serves the community and visitors by bringing art into individual’s daily lives. With over 30 features around Fallbrook, the newest addition is a 96” tall bronze, “Yeibichai,” cast by former ArtWorks of Fallbrook Peter Mitten. In 1996, a bronze installation of bears, dubbed “Bearfoot in the Park,” by Nancy Scott of Loveland, Colorado, began the path that lead to the multiple pieces that garnish Fallbrook grounds today. During that same year, The Fallbrook Mural Project joined the Art in Public Places program. Together, they transformed a shed in Village Square that had seen better days by having local artists paint a mural of flora and fauna on its wooden planks. Because of this initial success, nine murals are now in effect. The Ingold Family donated a life-size bronze, named “The Facts of Life,” by renowned sculptor Glenna Goodacre who is the creator of the Vietnam Women’s Memorial in Washington, D.C. Due to this donation, Art in Public Places was taken to a new level where it expanded to reach areas such as Beech Street Park, later renamed Jackie Heyneman Park. Art in Public Places’ first project was a mural painted by students of Fallbrook Country Day School. “All Creatures Great and Small” was completed in 1988. Years later, a joint venture between Fallbrook Village Association, the Fallbrook Land Conservancy and SDSU’s Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve brought forth the sculpture garden at Palomares House Park on Stagecoach Lane. In this design, bronze sculptures grace the park grounds throughout. Art in Public Places is making art available to everyone while enhancing the beauty of Fallbrook. Take a tour of the program’s collection and become inspired to create your own versions of artwork. To learn more, go to Looking for classes? The Fallbrook School of the Arts offers classes and workshops to the public in sculpture, hot glass, ceramics, printmaking, jewelry making, photography, classical drawing, fiber arts, oil/acrylic/watermedia/pastel painting, paper arts, life drawing, stone carving and welding for the sculpture artist.
