Publisher’s Note

Overlooking Highway 15. Shirley Binn photo

Sourcebook is a celebration of the communities the Village News serves, which includes Fallbrook, Bonsall, DeLuz, Rainbow, Pala, Pauma Valley, and Camp Julie Reeder Pendleton. It’s an amazing area with thriving agriculture, beautiful landscape, breathtaking views of mountains, valleys, and even the ocean. There’s wonderful parks, trails, and green space. It’s an area that’s unincorporated, so we depend heavily on local boards and nonprofits to provide direction and meet the needs of the citizens. We truly live in a unique area. There are a lot of beautiful places I’ve traveled, but I’m always glad to return home, and it’s more than the fact that it’s beautiful and serene here – it’s truly home here because of the people. We were one of those family transplants from outside the area almost 30 years ago and we couldn’t feel more welcome. I love going to local restaurants where I’ve known the owners or managers for almost 20 years. They’ve known some of my kids since birth, and now my grandkids. My kids, since they were young, have had the privilege and security of many adults around them who care about them, whether it’s neighbors, church friends, or local business people. They are all adults now and really starting to appreciate how wonderful it was to grow up here. That’s what this book highlights – that it’s a great place to live and full of interesting, wonderful people. In addition to the stories of accomplished people who have made this their home, there are also guides to local nonprofits, restaurants, hiking, etc. We hope you will read it through and find some new groups to join, a new restaurant to try, some local shops to experience, or maybe venture out to a park or hiking trail that you never knew existed! You might want to take someone with you or meet a new friend along the way. If you are in River Village or the heart of historic downtown in Fallbrook, pop into your local Chamber of Commerce and say “hi”. There are a lot of friendly faces and someone is waiting to meet you. Thank you for being part of our amazing community

The original glass – which is flawed and wavy – has a charm of its own, as well as historical value, so during the window restoration they tried to save as much of the original glass as possible. However, when that was impossible, a product that Leung called “restoration glass” was used. When the schoolhouse interior was tackled, one of the first projects was to remove owl and bird droppings from the attic. Leung went up there herself to help with the daunting task. Zeda Fox, who was involved with the initial restoration, rememSINCE 1984 bered that several owls had taken up residence in the attic for a while. “You could hear them tramp across the roof during meetings,” she related. However, the owls were finally “evicted” and the attic boarded up. In keeping with the historical bent of the project, the kitchen that the Bonsall Lions Club had built was removed.

Fallbrook’s A Leer Program Unites Families in Literacy and Reading

by Andrea Verdin

eading is one of the most important aspects of a child’s life. However, with the busy lifestyles that today’s children live, it’s nearly impossible to have a child sit and read, much less so with a parent. However, there is a day in Fallbrook when hundreds of children are given a chance to sit and read, hopefully discovering a passion for books. For the 12th year, the Fallbrook A Leer/ Reading Family Literacy Day gave children the opportunity to read books at their reading level. Parents are also equipped with tools to help them enforce learning and reading at home, and are given the opportunity to hear special presentations regarding learning and reading at home.

The A Leer program began with a simple dream – to encourage children from prekindergarten to fifth grade to read, said Leticia Maldonado/Stamos, one of the directors of A Leer. She had been invited to a similar event in Vista to be a guest reader 12 years ago, and saw the benefit of having such a program in Fallbrook. “Being in Fallbrook, we are isolated from programs that Escondido and Vista can take advantage of,” said Maldonado/Stamos. “I talked to the individual in charge, and he told me Univision had received a large grant from the Ford Foundation – about $10 million – to put on reading events like this in five major cities. The Vista event had been part of the San Diego event.”

Angel Society of Fallbrook

Celebrating 38 Years of Giving The Angel Society of Fallbrook is a non-profit philanthropy that raises funds for our community through the operation of the Angel Shop. Founded in 1978, the Angel Society has donated more than $3.3 million in support of local charities and other worthy programs. The Angel Shop 1002 S.

Maldonado/Stamos discovered that Univision would be able to provide a similar event in Fallbrook, but she would need to find volunteers and a school sponsor to be a part of the program. In the first Fallbrook event, 35 children and parents attended, with 6th graders volunteering to read to children. Books were given to children based on their age and reading level. The following year, when Maldonado/ Stamos approached Univision to see if they would once again put on the program, they informed her that the grant money had run out. However, Maldonado/Stamos was not deterred. “I said, ‘Well, we can do this ourselves.’ We can find volunteers, have books donated, and recruit more students,” said Maldonado/Stamos. “Every year, the event has gotten bigger and bigger; we have had over 150 students and adults volunteer, with over 600 parents and children be a part of the event.” The A Leer/Reading event occurs on or around Cesar Chavez’s birthday, March 31, as it is an official holiday in California. The event is held at the auditorium at Maie Ellis Elementary School, with the lawn and

auditorium separated into different areas for various activities. “It’s a day of community service and learning, and we want this day to have a more lasting effect on volunteers than simply picking up trash,” explained Maldonado/ Stamos. “We have seen such a groundswell of support from the community, which is so representative of the people in Fallbrook. They give their time and money to try and make Fallbrook a better place for everyone. This is especially the case with Tom Aspell, who opened the door for us. He helped me believe that we could make this a big event, and he believed in us.” Students and parents spend an entire day reading, crafting and learning about literacy. Students move in groups to different readers, while parents attend workshops. Every year, the workshops are different. “The workshop could be anything from how to maintain a home library, to how kids can use their Chromebooks for school and homework,” said Maldonado/Stamos. The program has grown through requests made by parents and students, said Maldonado/Stamos. Because of requests from participants, students can now enter essay and

poetry essay contests, and spend an afternoon making crafts that are related to reading and literacy. Every year, students are given books to read at home, including books about Cesar Chavez. Individuals who might never have had another opportunity to become leaders or volunteers find their place in A Leer. “We are completely grassroots, and have no recognizable organization, but parents and people can feel comfortable coming and helping for this one event. They might want to distribute fliers, or make bookmarks for the day. Parents are involved, even those who have never held leadership positions or had big responsibilities before,” said Maldonado/Stamos. “Everyone is a volunteer – we started with about six to eight, and have moved to nearly 120, with students from every elementary school, the junior high, high school, nearby colleges, and universities.” Maldonado/Stamos stated that A Leer does not turn away volunteers. As a matter of fact, volunteer coordinator Siegrid Stillman is able to create shifts for volunteers to come in and read for a few hours. If students and parents are interested in being a part of A Leer, they can register through the public schools. “A Leer is free, but has limited space,” said Maldonado/Stamos. The basic objective of Fallbrook A Leer is to provide a meaningful opportunity for community service and to encourage parents, particularly parents, to focus on reading at home. Parents are students’ first teachers, and may end up being their last teachers. Reading is so important, especially with underachieving, second language students. Learning is not something that only happens at school.” Maldonado/Stamos also said it’s important for parents to read around their children, even if it is for only a few minutes a day. “Some parents feel like they can’t help their children because don’t know how school works, but by reading 20 minutes with their children, parents can make a big difference,” said Maldonado/ Stamos. “Studies have shown that the number of literature books can have just as much influence as a parent with higher education.” A Leer has garnered awards for its transformative impact on the community, including a Golden Bell Award. “This speaks a lot of our program,” said Maldonado/Stamos. “It tells the story of people who believed in something and accomplished great things. The people of Fallbrook deserve a lot of credit. The community has stepped up and donated books, foods, and canopies. In a small town like this, everyone asks small businesses for support. However, if we ask, Fallbrook supports its own. Members might not be able to give big gifts, but they are able to make a difference.” SOURCEBOOK 2016

Lango Baya Mission Project: Creating Safe Homes for Children Around the World

by Andrea Verdin

illions of children around the world have to grow up without the safety of a home, or without knowing where their next meal is coming from. As a matter of fact, Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the highest prevalence (percentage of population) of hunger. According to the World Food Programe, one person in four there is undernourished. The statistics for children is even more staggering; Poor nutrition causes nearly half of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year. For those who survive, one out of six children – roughly 100 million – in developing countries is underweight. As they grow, those children are stunted, with one in three never reaching their full height and weight because of their hunger. Though these numbers truly are heartbreaking, one Fallbrook man has created a nonprofit organization that will truly transform the way that orphaned children in Kenya, Africa, grow up. Doug Boggs has formed the Lango Baya Mission Project, which focuses on the health and safety of orphaned children in six Kenyan villages. SOURCEBOOK 2016

Boggs’ passion to transform these children’s lives came after meeting a Kenyan missionary who visited St. Peter’s Church in Fallbrook in 2007. “For a long time, I had the desire to be involved in the foreign missions, and within six months or so, I went to Kenya,” said Boggs. “Being raised in our American culture, I was shocked by what I saw, and suddenly became aware that everybody in the world doesn’t live the way Americans live.” Boggs was encouraged by the missionaries’ work within the villages, but at the same time, he was saddened by the conditions that large segments of the world’s population struggle with. “That motivated me to get involved with that area and those people who are trying to create the appropriate development for the culture in which they are working,” said Boggs. “One of the first things I asked the missionaries was, ‘What was their first, most urgent, need.’ They said there are many orphans in the area, and I decided to work with them.” Boggs was unaware that the missionaries quickly spread word of his plan to local residents, and two days before he was to return home, Boggs was approached by Mama Lucy, a church member. “She said, ‘I hear you’re looking for orphans. I’ve got nine orphans here, waiting,’” said Boggs. “I wasn’t planning on doing anything on that first trip, but I wrote down their info on a piece of scrap paper and took their pictures. When I returned to Fallbrook, in the very first meeting I began to help the orphans, all nine were sponsored in that meeting.” Today, the Lango Baya Mission Project helps 425 orphans in six villages. Sponsored children are able to go to school, given medical attention, and most importantly, are also given food support. Before being supported financially, the orphans were eating one meal a day, and were severely malnourished. 19

Clay bricks are made by the entire village during mission trips. This is an effective way to have the community gather together to support each other.

This woman cared for several orphans in this hut, which was recently remudded with the help of Lango Baya Mission Project.

Sponsored orphans show off their school uniforms, which are purchased with sponsor’s donations. The students would not be able to pay for the $3-$4 uniforms without their sponsors.

Sponsored orphans who have graduated from college are given an opportunity to learn a trade, such as tailoring with the help of sponsorship. In addition, caregivers are given an opportunity to earn a wage through similar trades.

Unlike orphanages that group children together in large homes for care, the Lango Baya Mission Project works with the orphans’ living family members to care for the children. “It’s better socialization for the children than if they were in orphanages,” said Boggs. “Caregiving family members can be a grandmother, an aunt or an uncle. We also help the families develop sources of personal household income through small business opportunities such as animal husbandry and agricultural training.” As the children sponsored through the Lango Baya Mission Project grew, new needs arose. Before being sponsored, many of these children did not expect to complete high school. If that had occurred, the children would have stayed in the same cycle of poverty they were born into. As a way to break that cycle, Boggs and the Lango Baya Mission Project are aiding students to continue their education. “We now have many students in two-year and four-year college degree programs,” said Boggs. “It’s an understood fact that education is one of the primary ways for children to move out of the cycle of poverty, but we have the same concern for children who are not destined for college. Therefore, we provide access to trade and technical schools. We also provide motivational goal setting seminars for our high school students, addressing the different issues the children may be facing now, as a way to help them succeed in life.” To insure that the orphans’ needs are being addressed, the Lango Baya Mission Project has six local village coordinators who live in the villages to oversee the orphans’ care. “We use strong local leadership to run the program,” said Boggs.

“It’s a nice cooperative partnership because it restrains our Western tendency to go in with a Western solution, which in fact can do more harm than good.” Though the Lango Baya Mission Project is affiliated with the Catholic Church because Boggs is Catholic, the goal of the mission project is to address the needs of the community, not just a select few who attend the church. The village coordinators also identify any orphans within the community that might need sponsorship, and report back to the nonprofit. “The coordinators know the people, and help us find orphans,” explained Boggs. “We have orphans from all religious groups represented. We help anyone that needs help.” “This has been such a wonderful cross-cultural learning experience,” said Boggs. “Effective poverty alleviation is a complex mission involving history, culture, politics and economics. Within the last 15 to 20 years, organizations are doing long-term development the correct way – coming alongside communities to help them, not rescue them. We have the tendency to do things we feel will most benefit [those in need] with our own biases, and we can really hurt people in trying to help them if it’s not properly done with cultural sensitivity and awareness. We need to work within the community’s desired framework of improvement.” Currently, the Lango Baya Mission Project is looking for individuals to help sponsor orphans, in addition to volunteer their time to promote the project. The project is also in the process of developing a website for further reach into the community. To support an orphan through the Lango Baya Mission Project, contact Doug Boggs at (760) 723-2210 or at langobaya@yahoo.com.

The Treasure of

Red Cloud Mine

Garth Bricker makes his mark in the mineral world by Sandra Shrader


ith a name that exudes a faintly gothic aura, wulfenite is a mineral prized for its clusters of vibrant red-orange crystals so spellbinding that rock hunters all over the world long to add it to their collections. Although the mineral can be found in other less showy colors, there is only one place in the world that the prized and strikingly ruddy-hued versions of wulfenite reside, and that is the Red Cloud mine in Arizona. And that is also where, down in the mine’s underground shafts and honeycombed tunnels, alongside the fissures and cracks in the earth violently brought forth millions of years ago by earthquakes and ancient boiling waters, Garth Bricker staked out a highly respected reputation among the international mineral collecting community. That’s because Bricker, 84, a retired Fallbrook elementary school teacher and former curator of the Fallbrook Gem and Mineral Society Museum, took every opportunity he could for thirty years to descend into the mine in search of its lustrous red treasure. Today he owns a world-class collection of wulfenite specimens from the Arizona site, much of it on permanent display at the museum. “There is just something about the Red Cloud mine’s wulfenite that captured my interest and my heart. It’s a very beautiful mineral that is only uniquely found in one place on the planet,” Brinker said, adding that while

the mineral can form in other colors ranging from orange yellow, waxy yellow, olive green, blue, brown and black, the brilliant redorange minerals native to the Red Cloud location are considered to be the most desirable of the wulfenite family. “I first started digging there in 1964, and I spent every Christmas vacation, every Easter break, every break that I could to be at the mine,” said Brinker, a tall man with a quiet manner of speaking that doesn’t quite hide the joy of his mineral-excavating memories. “I was lucky that, as a teacher, I could take the time to go digging, and that my wife Janice understood how much it meant to me,” he continued, with a nod and smile to his wife standing by his side. “And sometimes she would come along too!” The Red Cloud mine, located about 25 miles north of Yuma, Arizona and not far from the Colorado River, first began operating in the late 1870s as a silver and lead mine. It was one of sixty mines in what was called the Silver District in the Trigo Mountains in La Paz County. But by 1890 the bulk of silver and lead ore production had ceased at the mine, and wulfenite, a by-product of the ore at the Red Cloud site, began to spark the interest of mineral collectors starting with the first public marketing of the spectacular red-orange crystal clusters in 1880. The mineral, commonly known as “yellow lead ore,” was named after an Austrian-German Jesuit priest and mineralogist named Franz Xaver Freiherr von Wulfen in 1845. It is created when the metal elements of lead in ore deposits become oxidized (exposed to oxygen either by air or water.) During the eons-long oxidation process, the atoms, molecules or ions in the lead A large section of wulfenite Garth Bricker mined and collected from the Red Cloud Mine in Arizona on display at the Fallbrook Gem & Mineral Society Museum. Wulfenite is noted for its thin tabular crystals with square or octagonal shape.

all stack together in neat and highly-ordered symmetrical patterns with other elements or by themselves to form crystal structures, thus creating minerals. Wulfenite crystals, which are also found in New Mexico, China, Namibia and Mexico, appear in shapes that are pyramidal, square and tabular which are flat and have smooth planes and sharply beveled edges. The atomic structure of its crystals, however, contain a one-of-kind symmetrical oddity not found in other minerals, and that adds to its desirability among serious collectors, in particular for the flame-colored wulfenite located at the Red Cloud site. Many spectacular specimens discovered at the Arizona mine have been of very large sizes, according to both Brickers, including an unrivaled two-inch-size piece that was discovered in 1938 by a legendary lone wolf prospector named Ed Over. But Bricker himself discovered what has long been considered to be the largest-faceted

wulfenite specimen ever found, “at 5.8 carats, and it is in my collection today,” he said. “The value of a wulfenite specimen is determined by the size of the specimen, the depth of the color, the thickness of the crystals and how translucent they are,” Janice added, explaining that the prized wulfenite from the Red Cloud mine can sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars to mineral collectors. But don’t expect to see wulfenite be made into jewelry, said Bricker, because its crystal structures are too fragile for cutting and can shatter easily. Bricker’s excavations for more than thirty years at the Red Cloud mine not only garnered storied accumulation of wulfenite, but they also inspired the telling of his story in a chapter he co-wrote in Peter Bancroft’s book, “Gem and Crystal Treasures.” The 488-page tome was first published in 1984, and features gem and mineral

mally get an opportunity to see these animals,” said Navarro, a former wildlife biologist and animal educator at the San Diego Wild Animal Park and other major zoos. “We like to think of it as ‘taming’ kids’ curiosity about wildlife, but adults get just as excited as the kids do when they meet our animal ambassadors at Wild Wonders.” Navarro founded Wild Wonders, Inc. in 1991, and today it is recognized as one of the foremost wildlife education organizations in the west, offering “safari” tours and zoo camps at its location on a spacious ten-acre hilltop in Bonsall. In addition, animals at Wild Wonders also are featured in interactive programs at schools and libraries for “face-to-face” and “hands-on” encounters, as well as appearing in television includ-

ing Good Morning America, Ellen Degeneres, Conan O’ Brien, the Tonight Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! shows. Wild Wonders has worked with several notable groups and foundations, including the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Conservation International, the National Wildlife Federation and renowned animal expert Jack Hanna. The organization’s educational outreach programs raise funds for global conservation partners such as Painted Dog Conservation, an organization committed to the conservation of Zimbabwe’s African Wild Dogs, and the Cheetah Conservation Fund, said Navarro, “Less than 7,000 cheetah – the fastest mammals on earth – exist in the wild today, and the largest remaining population is in Namibia,” said Navarro. “Due to the expansion of farmland and livestock, the wildlife habitat for cheetah has drastically been reduced,” she explained. “But a fairly new solution to keep farmers Porcupine “Penelope,” one of two porcupines at the educational animal facility in Bonsall.

Thus far Victor has helped raise $100,000 for conservation needs. In 2014, Wild Wonders acquired a female cheetah called Masika (whose name in Swahili means “when the rains stop”), and she

has taken a number of star turns herself, including a recent visit to the Kimmel show where she was the first cheetah to ever appear on a talk show without being caged. In addition to educating people about wildlife and the need for conservation programs, another part of Wild Wonders’ mission is to rescue exotic animals, said Navarro. “Some of the animals here have been brought in by Department of Fish & Game or U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials after being confiscated from owners who owned them illegally,” she explained. “Other animals have been injured and generally are not releasable back into the wild, and still others have been relinquished by owners who realize that the little wild animal they thought would make a cute pet isn’t so easy to handle when it becomes an adult.” A young alligator named Dolce was one such rescue case, said

Kim Wright, a staff member at Wild Wonders. “Before Dolce came to us in 2009, she had been found abandoned in a sewer drain right here in San Diego County,” said Wright. “She was small and scared, emaciated and very hungry, but now she is healthy and growing. And she will get to be more than fifteen feet long and weigh more than a thousand pounds!” Tours at Wild Wonders, whether for students or adults, encompasses meeting animals from the African savanna to the Australian Outback to the Amazon rainforest to America’s own backyard. A very playful wallaby named Adelaide aka “Addy” is one of the animals who hails from the Land Down Under. From Africa, the animals include a bushbaby, a hyrax [a little furry rotund creature said to be the nearest living relative to the elephant], and also a serval cat – “otherwise known as a ‘giraffe cat’ that can jump twelve feet in the air to catch birds,” said Navarro, who calls Africa her “second home because I have been there about fifteen times.” The Emerald Forest program includes encounters with kinkajous, coatis, and binturongs, or “bear cats,” which are probably the only animals whose fur smells like hot buttered popcorn! Also on hand at Wild Wonders are hedgehogs and porcupines, arctic and grey foxes, and still-growing 100-pound, thirteen-foot albino Burmese python named “Pugsley,” owl monkeys and opossums, a Siberian lynx and a crocodile and too many other animals to be counted. Wild Wonders is closed to the public, but does offer behindthe-scene tours by appointment only at its site. Prices are $30 per adult and $15 per child aged 17 years and younger, but there is a minimum fee of $125 for all tours so it’s best to bring family and friends along. The organization also offers zoo camps, educational programs, birthday and event tours, and animals for hire for film, television, advertising and still photography. For those animal lovers and budding zoologists who really want to get involved with wildlife conservation, there is also the option of “adopting” an animal at Wild Wonders through donations. “It’s so important to educate people today about the plight of wildlife because natural environments are changing and decreasing,” said Navarro. “And here at Wild Wonders, meeting our ‘creature-teachers’ face-to-face is truly helping everyone understand the importance of animal conservation.” Wild Wonders is located at 5712 Via Montellano in Bonsall. It is closed to the public; however, behind-the-scenes tours are offered by appointment only.

Fallbrook Solar Electric Providing Solar, Electric and High Quality Customer Service

“Why install something unless you know for sure you will get the results you had set out to get?”


allbrook homeowners are fortunate to live in a community with large lots, lovely landscapes, and family orchards. However, those same properties can be costly to maintain without the power of solar energy to offset the utility bills. That’s where Fallbrook Solar can transform private and business properties. Fallbrook Solar Electric president Ben Holtz has lived in the greater Fallbrook area for 32 years, and is proud to offer his community a service that many can use on their home, agricultural or business properties. Holtz and his family live and attend church in Fallbrook, and for the past two years, he has led the design and construction of the St. Peter’s Catholic School Christmas Parade Float, which was given the People’s Choice Award in 2014. Holtz is proud to be more than a solar design resource for his community– he is an expert in engineering and installations as well. With Holtz’s leadership and background in engineering and financial evaluations, Fallbrook Solar Electric is a great local resource and a standout among solar companies. After graduating as the Agricultural Engineer of the Year in 2007 from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Holtz began working as the engineering manager for a construction management company in Escondido. He then spent the following two years building the

President of Fallbrook Solar Electric, Ben Holtz.

Escondido Police and Fire Facility, where his passion for hands-on design and construction shined through. Holtz’s entrepreneurial spirit inspired him to provide project management and agricultural consulting services in the area. This developed into the need to provide financial evaluations for the projects he was consulting on. “It became clear that clean energy was an excellent investment and I began to advise and install solar systems for my clients,” said Holtz. “This led me to start Fallbrook Solar Electric two years ago as a resource for the community.” Since becoming a fully licensed bonded and insured contractor and commercial electrician, Holtz has designed, engineered and installed numerous solar systems, both residential and agricultural, ranging in size from 14 solar panels to over 500 panels. One proud customer includes Fallbrook

Equipment Rentals president Rick Windbigler, who proudly states, “Thanks for doing a nice smooth project, I will recommend you highly.” Fallbrook Solar Electric is different because of the leadership and approach towards design, engineering, and above all, customer service. “I believe that solar system design is an incredibly important part of the payback period of a solar install,” said Holtz, who believes that each solar system should deliver the expected solar energy, should be reliable, and should make sense as an investment. “Why install something unless you know for sure you will get the results you had set out to get?” asked Holtz. To find out if Fallbrook Solar Electric has a solution that will work for you, call to set up a personal project review with Holtz. “As a rule of thumb, solar begins to make sense as an investment if you are currently paying $150 per month or more for electricity,” said Holtz. “Throughout the collaborative process of finding the right solution, rest assured that there is a highly trained staff assisting in providing you the best solar investment possible.”

he word “cuisine” has come to mean stylish food, however, the literal meaning of the French word is simply, kitchen. Helene Beck’s cuisine, or kitchen, has a French country house aura. Once you step over the threshold you are greeted by a massive antique stone fireplace and French-style cabinets filled with vintage crockery, knives Helene’s cookbook inspires readers and other cooking implements – to experience the exotic flavors persimmons, kumquats and blood some from as far away as Morocco. oranges can bring to a recipe. These are remnants of an era long gone, and this is where Helene is inspired to create delectable cuisine, experimenting with grove-fresh persimmons, kumquats and blood oranges. She is driven by her love of beauty to create culinary delights that are both delectable and pleasing to the eye. Helene’s kitchen, built from a lifetime of travel and fascination with other cultures, is what gives her the creative edge. It’s a kitchen built with passion – passion for antiques and a passion for her golden grove fruit. The culmination of Helene’s creative time in her kitchen is the recently published cookbook, “Jewels From My Grove.” It had been Helene’s dream for many years to publish a cookbook, but she didn’t know how to go about it. That is when she sought the help of publisher Amy Stirnkorb of Chef’s Press. The result is a stunning piece of art filled with irresistible recipes and captivating photography. “My goal was to generate excitement for this remarkable fruit, as well as to inspire the reader to experience the exotic flavors persimmons, kumquats and blood oranges can bring to a recipe. These flavors are joy. They are calming. They are satisfying. In this book I have shared many years’ worth of flavor blending that is too marvelous a secret to be kept any longer.” Rick Bayless, host of PBS’s “Mexico – One Plate at a Time,” comments, (as quoted in “Jewels From My Grove”), “I have been lucky enough to spend time with Helene Beck…roasting and simmering in her kitchen, and most memorably, feasting at her table…I cut into citrus and tropical fruits I’d never had before, and my horizons broadened.” Bayless’ experience is exactly the results that Helene hoped for. www.my-sourcebook.com

“If this cookbook brings people to the knowledge and enjoyment of these fruits; or creates a springboard for readers to develop recipes on their own, then it was worth it.” The cookbook idea had been simmering in Helene’s mind for a long time. But, the journey began with a husband and wife’s love for each other, love for life, and love for organic fruit. After Helene and Robert married, they began to travel to locales such as Morocco, Bali, Africa and other exotic destinations. During these travels Helene paid close attention to the cuisine of each country. When the Becks bought their Fallbrook property they went to work restoring the long-neglected grove. George and Gale Cunningham were a great influence on them regarding growing organic fruit, and Jerry Weiss helped their grove become certified biodynamic. The Becks dedicated their lives to growing organic fruit – mainly persimmons, kumquats and blood oranges. The pesticidefree grove gave Robert and Helene great satisfaction because they both felt driven to improve the quality of life for all living things. The first fruits to inspire Helene to create recipes were kumquats and persimmons. She began experimenting using “fresh off the tree” fruit. “Persimmons are a versatile fruit and lend an enchanting sweetness, as well as zest, to a recipe,” Helene noted. “Kumquats imbue sweet and sour tones, as well as color.” With an abundance of persimmons and kumquats that Helene couldn’t bear to see go to waste, she began to consider fruit preservation. In the spirit of preservation, her first product, dried persimmons, was created. The second product was kumquat piquant sauce. Thus her online fruit and condiment business, La Vigne Organics, was born. In 2004 I visited Beck Grove for the first time and was enchanted. I was delighted to be a guest at an event that definitely had the air of a Greek Epicurean feast with culinary art appreciation and delightful camaraderie. Chef Cindy Mushet worked feverishly to create some luscious desserts for that affair. Included in her delectable repertoire was Tres Leches, a light cake flavored with coconut and fresh ginger, then swirled on top with kumquat and whipped crème. Tres Leches, as well as other palate pleaser recipes created by Chef Cindy, Helene and others, are found in “Jewels From My Grove.” It was Helene’s generous spirit that drove her to share these recipes with the world. In her own words, “I wish that everyone could experience the same joyous feeling about this fruit and the recipes created from them.” “Jewels From My Grove” is available online at www.lavignefruits.com and at www.Amazon.com.

I-15 and Hwy Projects Still in Process by Joe Naiman Several projects which will be built near State Highway 76 east of Interstate 15 have been approved but don’t look for too much movement this year. Here is an overview of all the projects in process. In May 2011 the San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved the General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan Amendment, zone reclassification, vesting site plan, vested tentative map, and environmental findings for Passerelle’s Campus Park project. The supervisors approved 521 singlefamily dwelling units, 230 condominium dwelling units, a town


center commercial area totaling 61,200 square feet, 157,000 square feet of professional office space, an 8.5-acre active sports park, six neighborhood parks, a community center, 5 miles of trails, and 197 acres of biological open space. D.R. Horton subsequently purchased the residential component, which is now called Horse Creek Ridge. The one percent base property tax will not be sufficient to fund county, San Diego Flood Control District, or North County Fire Protection District services, and in February 2014 the Board of Supervisors approved a Community Facilities District for Horse Creek Ridge which assesses an initial levy of $1,123 per singlefamily home, $852 per multi-family unit, and $7,400 per acre of undeveloped property with an annual two percent increase to cover the increased cost of service. In October 2013 the NCFPD board approved a property tax transfer agreement to transfer


seven percent of the one percent base property tax from the county to the fire district. NCFPD had approved such a transfer for Pardee Homes’ Meadowood project in March 2013. Meadowood was approved by the Board of Supervisors in January 2012 and will include 397 single-family homes, 447 multi-family units, 13 acres for an elementary school which will be built by the Bonsall Unified School District, four acres of park land, 128 acres of biological open space, 47 acres of agricultural open space, 5.9 miles of trails, and a wastewater treatment plant. The supervisors’ action also certified the Environmental Impact Report which included a statement of verified water service ability. The Meadowood area was within the San Luis Rey Municipal Water District, which is not part of the San Diego County Water Authority, and the Board of Supervisors’ conditions included annexation of the Meadowood property into the SDCWA. In April 2014 San Diego County’s Local Agency Formation Commission, which is responsible for jurisdictional boundary changes, annexed 267 acres of the total 390-acre project into the Valley Center Municipal Water District, the CWA, and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, detached 243 of those acres from the San Luis Rey Municipal Water District, and annexed the entire 390 acres into the North County Fire Protection District while detaching that area from the San Diego County Regional Fire Authority. Although only the 267 acres proposed for development were annexed into the water districts, the desire to avoid a noncontiguous “island” led to the entire property being detached from the county-administered SDCRFA and annexed into the North County Fire Protection District. Pappas Investments is the expected developer of Campus Park West, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors in

June 2014. Campus Park West comprises 116.5 acres and will consist of 283 multi-family dwelling units, 513,000 square feet of commercial use, 120,000 square feet of limited industrial use, and 31 acres of biological open space. Some of that land was already within the Rainbow Municipal Water District, CWA, and MWD boundaries although 99.94 acres were part of the San Luis Rey Municipal Water District before LAFCO’s February 2015 action to detach that acreage from the San Luis Rey district and annex the land into the Rainbow, CWA, and MWD territories. The annexation also included 141.3 acres of California Department of Transportation right-of-way, although the Caltrans area was not subject to annexation fees and will not be subject to property tax assessments. A tentative parcel map becomes a final map after all conditions of the tentative map, other than those for which permits cannot be issued until a final map is recorded, are fulfilled. The conditions of a final map include secured agreements to ensure that the infrastructure will be built and that payment for labor and materials used to build the infrastructure will be made. The Board of Supervisors must approve the secured agreements. A final map only creates legal lots; grading and building permits must comply with all elements of the checklist including environmental protection issues. Payment of the Transportation Impact Fee as well as processing fees is required to build new development. The TIF ordinance designates the area by State Route 76 east of Interstate 15 as a Village Core area; the current TIF payments are $3,760 per single-family residential unit, $3,192 per multi-family residential unit, $2,621 per 1,000 square feet for general commercial stores, $2,073 per 1,000 square feet for office use, and $1,155 per 1,000 square feet for industrial space. As of March 2016 NCTD has no plans to extend the frequency of Route 389, which runs from Escondido to Pala Casino with a stop at the park-and-ride by Interstate 15 and State Route 76, or to add a non-express route covering that area. None of the development project sponsors have discussed completion dates or future service with NCTD planning staff, although NCTD remains open to considering service concepts should any inquiry arise in the future. If a request is made for service, NCTD will review service design guidelines and standards, existing and potential service demand, potential operational or capital constraints, costs, and funding requirements before the NCTD board considers action. www.my-sourcebook.com

Los Osos or Grizzly Bear E

by August Fredy This is an interesting story related 35 years ago by August Fredy in The High Country Magazine, Winter 1981 edition. Fredy was a very well-known resident of Fallbrook with many interesting tales to tell. Published in Village News 1999.

ach time I pass the 150-ton granite monument at the northern outskirts of Temecula – “They Passed This Way” (thanks to Sam Hicks), I can’t help but think of the frontier people who encountered and suffered from the attack of the mighty, but awesome Grizzly Bear. It’s hard to believe that Southern California was in the heart of bear country. Imagine what the first white settlers from the

They Passed This Way

East thought when they encountered the huge, massive Grizzly in this area. They grew to a height of four feet and a length of seven or eight, and attained a weight of up to 1,500 pounds. Standing on his hind legs, he could reach 10 to 12 feet with ease. There were eight kinds of Courtesy www.temeculavalleymuseum.org Grizzly Bear in California. Features that set the Grizzly Bear apart from other bears except the Brown Bears, are the shoulder hump, the long front claws, the color of pelage, and the structures of the skull and teeth; (as compared to the Black Bear with higher shoulders, a longer body, a straighter back and lesser elevation of the haunches). Its head is narrower and the snout and jaws are longer and less blunt. The maximum weight of the male California Grizzly is estimated at 1,200 pounds and some weigh as much as 2,000 pounds. Before the white man came to the North County area, the Grizzly was completely in charge. Indian arrows and spears had little effect on the big Grizzly. Probably no other animal is so intimately connected with the early occupation and history of the Temecula/Fallbrook area. His strength was tremendous, being able to knock down a bull or carry off a horse. The Indians very seldom walked the river or creek bottoms – the huge bear was always waiting for them. In his story of the life of Father Junipero Serra, founder of the California missions, Father Francisco Palou told of how the settlement of San Diego in 1769 was running out of food. The military commander Don Pedro Fages rode with soldiers to the Valley of the Bears, which is now called San Luis Rey, and retuned with bear meat. Bears could be seen in herds from Oceanside to Palomar Mountain. In Southern California, Grizzlies ranged seemingly to the edge of the desert. They were recorded on the desert side of the Cajon Pass, Bear Valley, San Bernardino Mountains, the San Jacinto Range, the Santa Ana Mountains (west of Temecula), and Rancho Santa Margarita (west of Fallbrook). A painting by James Walker shows vaqueros capturing a Grizzly Bear for use in a bear-bullfight at Rancho Santa Margarita, near the town of Fallbrook. Bear and bullfights were also held by the Spaniards at Pala, San Juan Capistrano, Santa Ysabel (near Julian), Old Town San Diego, Los Angeles and the San Luis Rey Mission. In the 17th Century, the Spaniards learned about the ferocity and tenacity of life of the California Grizzlies. They were told they are ferocious brutes, hard to hunt. They attack the hunter with incredible quickness and courage. He can only escape on a swift horse. One painting shows a vaquero capturing a Grizzly Bear on horseback with his lariat, and the bear is pulling the horse and rider into him. Because the average vaquero rarely carried a rifle or a pistol (firearms were entirely the property of the military and special Spaniards), www.my-sourcebook.com

the use of the riata as a weapon was developed to perfection. Made of rawhide in four strands to the thickness of the little finger, and about 40 feet in length with the end tied in a running knot, this instrument, like the horse, was an indispensable part of the equipment of every Californian. The horse which the Californian rode had been carefully trained to assist its master in the Los Osos Roy Morrissey drawing catching of wild cattle, human enemies and savage beasts, such as the Grizzly Bear. Descendants of the Spanish rancheros hunted Grizzly Bears with the riata, even during the early years of the American period. In the area around San Jacinto, Santa Rosa and Cahuilla, in which the Luisenos lived, they regarded the Grizzly as an avenger for their God, Chungichnick. A necklace of the claws of a Grizzly (around five inches) was a priceless possession. In the cosmology of the Luisenos, Grizzlies, along with stinging weeds and rattlesnakes, were the avengers whom the great God Chungichnick invoked upon those who disobeyed his commandments. Long ago, when the Cahuilla near Palm Springs conquered a mankiller bear from the San Jacinto Mountains, the desert air throbbed all night with the singing and dancing of the people around the body of the monster. The Wentrem, possibly as a cathartic against the fear of a live Grizzly, indulged in hysterical hilarity while the hide of a dead one was being fleshed. They threw pieces of meat at one another, and anyone who was hit had to plunge into the river. Later, by the glow of the campfires, the animal’s head was put in front of a young and vigorous male dancer, who pantomimed the killing of the bear with a split-stick rattle. In one of the books, “The Silver Dons,” it tells how on September 11, 1839, Lieutenant Cave Couts led the U.S. Army troops out of San Diego to the desert, and in route, killed 16 Grizzly bears near Julian. History tells of the killing of two Cahuilla women by a Grizzly about 1875 in the San Jacinto area. From the evidence, we may conclude that the Grizzly injured Indians often to keep them in a state of respect or terror. One story of a Cahuilla is about an Indian who attended a bear/ bull fight at the Pueblo of Los Angeles. The Grizzly, a cowardly individual, was getting the worst of the battle and was knocked down. A Cahuilla Indian whispered to him, “You must fight and defend yourself; they are going to kill you.” Whereupon, the bear charged the bull and broke its neck. Hunters were witness to a desperate fight in the San Jacinto Mountains between a mountain lion and a bear. The fight is described as terrific. The superior strength of the bear easily enabled him to throw his antagonist down. But the lion used his paws and jaws so ferociously that the bear could not keep him down. Both animals were covered with blood. They fought until both were exhausted, then the lion dragged himself off into the brush, leaving the bear the winner. SOURCEBOOK 2016

Around 1850 the Americans built huge traps, large and strong enough to hold a Grizzly bear. Several old, log bear traps were seen in the hills ear Tomas Mountain and Cahuilla Valley of the San Jacinto Mountains area. A few Grizzlies of this area became known by name because of a distinctive feature or because of their exploits. In 1875 there was a bear in the Santa Ana Mountains known as Old White Face. In general, the Grizzly Bear’s last stronghold was in the Santa Ana Mountains, from Fallbrook to Santa Ana Canyon. One was shot in January of 1908 in the Trabuco Canyon area where Orange and San Diego Counties meet. One was killed in Riverside County near Tenaja in 1895. It has been reported that there was one killed in downtown Fallbrook in the middle 1800s near the Ridgley Martin General Store located on Main Street near Hawthorne Street. During the year 1900, Henry Steward, a farmer of San Juan Capistrano, shot and killed a Grizzly at Los Vallecitos in the north part of what is now Camp Pendleton. That place is now called Case Springs, and that was the last Grizzly killed in San Diego County. Measurements of that 1900 specimen from the San Onofre Canyon area included the sole without claws—12 inches long and eight inches wide.

Joseph Smith, the American pioneer who left his name on Palomar Mountain, had so much trouble with Grizzlies getting his stock that he had to get help from the Indians to get the bears under control. In Catherine M. Woods’ book about Palomar Mountain Teepees to Telescopes, Grizzly bears were referred to as “common as pigs, and herds of hem could be found on the mountain.” Bear Valley near Escondido was where the market hunters shot most of their bears for the restaurants in San Diego. The San Diego Union in 1871 reported a huge Grizzly Bear, weighing around 1200 pounds, was killed near Bonsall. Retired Fire Chief William Thurber Jr. of the Fallbrook Fire Dept. told of an old Grizzly Bear that lived on what was the Yackey Ranch. No one would kill the bear because he never bothered anyone. This place is now called the Bear Creek Ranch, which is in Sandia Canyon, north of Fallbrook. According to a story told by Videl C. Reche of Fallbrook, he personally knew six men who were killed in the Fallbrook area by Grizzly Bears in a 10-year period. In the early 1930s, I had the privilege of listening to Grizzly stories told by Mr. Wilmot, who homesteaded a section of land in the DeLuz Canyon before the turn of the century. He told of several Grizzly Bears that roamed in the DeLuz Canyon, killing livestock and bothering homesteaders. Before the Grizzly passed from the Grizzly scene, Charles Howard Shinn wrote an article suggesting that, although the great bear was doomed, it might live on in the minds of men – like the Lion of England and the Winged Bull of Assyria. www.my-sourcebook.com

Kim Steel and Associates

Putting the Needs of Our Real Estate Clients First Weichert, Realtors® Murphy & Murphy


im Steel and Associates brings a fresh approach and a disciplined attitude to providing top-notch service to their real estate clients. For the team of U.S Marine veterans who work together at Kim Steel and Associates, that code of conduct, along with a combined expertise in the residential, land, commercial and income property markets, is the key to success, according to owner and licensed Realtor Kim Steel. “We are all about providing complete and quality professional real estate services to our clients,” Steel said, adding that her professional team focuses primarily on the real estate market in the Fallbrook, Bonsall, Vista, Oceanside and Valley Center areas. “We pride ourselves on going the extra mile and more when sellers and buyers list their homes and properties with us,” explained the former combat veteran. “And that extra effort means everything from providing market analysis, doing aggressive marketing and advertising, helping our clients find loan programs,and processing the paperwork for real estate transactions—which can be more than 100 pages per transaction!” In addition to working with homeowners and homebuyers, Kim Steel and Associates also provides real estate investors with acquisitions, marketing, property valuation, and assitance with consulting services. By doing so, according to Kris McCullough, also a licensed real estate agent and military veteran member of the group, “homeowners who need to sell quickly can benefit when their properties can be purchased by cash-paying investors.” “Many times, there are circumstances in which homeowners need to sell because of a divorce, or pending foreclosure, or probate, or if they are in the military and find out that they have to relocate immediately,” said McCullough, who has more than fifteen years of experience in real estate inSOURCEBOOK 2016

vesting. “When we can sell their homes to investors, we make the process as hasslefree as possible for the sellers.” McCullough is also in charge of the marketing and advertising of client properties for Kim Steel and Associates, coordinating photography, mailers, flyers, newspapers ads, and videos and/or virtual tours of listed homes which are shown on social media. In addition, he also handles agentto-agent communications and consumer phone and email campaigns. Kim Steel and Associates also offers renovation services, particularly for distressed properties or cash sales, but also to home sellers who want to fix up their homes in order to increase a home’s market value, said Steel, adding that she spends ten to twelve hours a week reviewing current decor and renovation trends. Other members of the real estate team, also military veterans, work with sellers once their property is listed, and oversee the various stages of the home selling process all the way through escrow and moving day. That can cover inspections, repairs, clean up, trash removal, even “spending weekends painting a house if it needs it,” said Steel. “We’re told all the time by other real estate professionals that we’re crazy to spend our time painting a place,” she said with a laugh. “But if it needs to be done in order to

sell at a good price, we just pitch in and do it. We are a team here at Kim Steel and Associates, and that keeps us focused on making our service as successful as it can be.” And that teamwork attitude fits right in with the small-town lifestyle in Fallbrook, Steel added, saying that she and other members of the group enjoy living in Fallbrook and taking part in the community events such as last September’s “Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green” day in which she and other representatives of Kim Steel and Associates enthusiastically picked up the most trash during the event. “All the community events – the parades, the Avocado Festival makes us feel like we are back home in the small towns where we each grew up,” she said. “We knew that when we came to Fallbrook for the first time that this was the place for us.”

Renaissance Woman

Fallbrook sculptor and inventor Julia S. Rasor fuses together art, science and entrepreneurship

by Sandra Shrader

Betrayed and Idle Hands of Industry [far right] by Julia S. Rasor.

Julia S. Rasor always gets a little embarrassed when her friends sometimes teasingly call her “da Vinci.” A tall blonde with an exuberant smile, spiky hair and a firm handshake, she is the first to laugh off any comparison to Leonardo da Vinci, that unrivaled Renaissance master who proved that science and art were not mutually exclusive. But with Rasor’s lengthy and prestigious scientific career in the medical device industry and her highly respected reputation as a representational and abstract figurative sculptor, there is some truth to what her friends say. “After so many years of being involved with the creation of medical devices, from the scientific research end of that business to the upper management of it, I suppose that my decision to become a sculptor probably does look kind of strange,” said Rasor at her home and studio located in the hills north of Fallbrook. “But when I started out, in what was eventually to be a thirty-year career in medical device invention and entrepreneurship, I had decided to be a scientific illustrator and I took classes in anatomy and physiology,” she said, adding that as a teenager she drew an illustration of a surgeon operating with remote surgery device to accompany an article written by her physicist father for a

scientific journal. “So wanting to create art was a dream that never really disappeared for me.” Beginning in the 1970s, Rasor obtained a master’s degree in Physiology at the University of California at Davis, and she worked as a research associate and technical consultant for numerous medical businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area. She continued to add to her resume with promotions as senior scientist and medical device consultant through the early 1980s, and in 1983 Rasor founded Rasor Consulting Group, a medical device consulting business. She also earned a professional certificate in engineering management from the University of San Diego at California during that decade. In subsequent years, Rasor not only continued to operate Rasor Consulting Group at various intervals up to the present, she also founded and was president/CEO/ inventor of CAPNIA, Inc., a Los Gatos-based medical device company traded on the NASDAQ that currently markets a monitor that accurately measures carbon monoxide in the exhaled breaths of newborns in order to identify and manage jaundice.

including the Brandon Gallery in Fallbrook, the Fallbrook Art Center, the San Diego Sculptors Guild, the Oceanside Museum of Art and the La Jolla Art Association Gallery. Three of Rasor’s large sculptures are currently on display at the San Diego Botanic Gardens in Encinitas, and a fourth one was just accepted for [Left] The Accuser and [Right] The Accused. the 2016-17 exhibition. Along with her new-found passion for sculpture, the spirit of entrepreneurship still keeps Rasor busy launching new enterprises. Recently she was the founding CEO and now Chairman of the Board for Entrovita, Inc., a company that is developing a new airway device (an instrument used in situations when a patient’s airway is blocked or at risk of being obstructed.) Entrovita’s airway device will improve ease of insertion and decrease trauma for patients, according to Rasor. And in a brand-new business direction, Rasor has set up the San Diego Artist Retreat at her 4-acre mountaintop avocado ranch and art studio in Fallbrook. “I saw a need for a place where artists could go to clear out the clutter of everyday life, where they could get in touch with

nature,” she said, gazing out at the ebb and flow of clouds sweeping through the ravines below her property. Rasor bought the sprawling mid-century-style house in January, 2015, but, despite the fact that it was designed by famed architect Al Boeke (known for integrating house designs Courtesy photos with surrounding environments), the place had been empty for a number of years and needed substantial repairs. The fact that there were holes in the roof and critters inhabiting the rooms didn’t matter to the forward-thinking Rasor, who set about getting property renovations in motion. “I love it that this place can offer artists the solitude and exposure to nature that they need,” she said, adding that she plans to include workshops, retreats and residencies at the San Diego Artist Retreat. “And the retreat will be available for writers, poets and musicians as well.” However, much to Rasor’s delight, her ranch is only a few minutes away from downtown Fallbrook, and she soon became introduced to the community of artists who live in the area.

Diane Hartcorn Rasor taught a sculpture workshop at the Fallbrook School of the Arts. Like the artist-engineer-scientifically-curious Leonardo da Vinci who, even in his own time, became hailed as the first “Renaissance Man,” Rasor agrees that one basic tenet is constant no matter how many fields of interest one becomes accomplished in. “There are no failures in science,” Rasor said. “Every time is an experiment, a time to try new approaches and to test limits. And that’s just the way it goes with art too.” For more information about Julia S. Rasor and the San Diego Artist Retreat, visit: www.rasorssculptures. com/home.php; to see a video of Julia S.

Brett Stokes

– a versatile, soulful artist Artist Brett Stokes with his mural at Café des Artistes.

by Nathalie Taylor


rett Stokes shares a philosophy with the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. In the poem, “The Force that Through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower,” Thomas explores the interconnection of nature and life: “…The force that drives the water through the rocks, Drives my red blood…” In many of Stokes’ paintings his goal has been to express the interconnection of life, nature and elements. “I ponder the world – everything is connected and goes in cycles – I try to portray that essence,” Stokes explains. During the greater part of his multifaceted career Stokes has painted what he calls “objective” art. That is, art that represents a recognizable object. This type of art is represented in the pieces he created for the Leanin’ Tree greeting card company while an employee. In Fallbrook he painted several objective murals inspired by his life-long connection with the town. He may paint objective art, but Stokes doesn’t paint static objects. His painting is driven by emotion, and that is what gives life to the completed works. “I want to offer the viewer beauty and goodness,” he said. 58

Stokes’ artwork is thought-provoking, and sometimes contains many layers and hidden messages. He once painted a mountain lion head that was practically hidden. Against a background of blue, Stokes painted a faint, starry outline of a mountain lion’s head. Stokes explained that he knows there are mountain lions among us even though he hasn’t seen them. (I attribute this sensitivity to his Cherokee heritage.) If he had actually seen one in the area, the mountain lion head Stokes painted would probably have been a bolder color – more discernible. Stokes is able to take his insights and translate them to recognizable art. Capturing the essence of personalities on canvas is another artistic avenue where Stokes shines. A mural entitled, “Where Fallbrook Eyes are Smiling,” was painted in the former MaGee’s Tavern. This work included images of Fallbrook

personalities sharing good times. The group included Grammy Award-winning music legend Rita Coolidge. Coolidge noted, “I was absolutely honored to be in his mural – especially in the front row!” According to Coolidge, Stokes became one of her first friends after she moved to Fallbrook, and the two share a Cherokee heritage. Brett Stokes’ much-admired piece at Café des Artistes was inspired by Van Gogh’s “Café Terrace at Night.” In this brilliant work, he created a fantasy meeting of several renowned artists. Stokes put much thought into the piece and added subtle suggestions that point the viewer towards the artists’ works. For example, a vase of sunflowers rests on the table in front of Vincent Van Gogh, and a melted watch drips out of Salvador Dali’s pocket.

I believe that art is the closest thing to magic there is because you are taking something from an intangible source and creating something that can be taken in by the senses. – Brett Stokes

About nine years ago Stokes began to delve into abstract art, which he said, “exists below the radar of consciousness.” He also mentioned that it will take longer for someone to view an abstract piece than an “objective” piece. “I encourage people to pay attention to their feelings and to what the splatters and drips mean to them,” he said. Whether abstract or objective, his artwork bursts from the canvas and his pieces demand attention. When viewing, each individual brings their own perspective and life experiences to art. If I interpret a piece in one manner, and the next viewer sees something entirely different, I think that Brett Stokes has accomplished his artistic objectives. Stokes is a life-long Fallbrook resident. He attended Fallbrook High, Palomar College and then began his commercial art career. One important mentor was the late Dave Deal, who was working on Disney’s “Cars” film when he passed away. “He taught me so much – I am forever indebted to him.” At thirty years of age Stokes began to get serious about fine art work. His first show was at Fallbrook’s Brandon Gallery; and the pieces were Native American designs in pen and ink. His work is now represented on the website, www. findyourcool.us. Because Stokes is proud of his Cherokee heritage, much of his work contains Native American imagery. The award-winning artist has shown pieces around the world including galleries in Japan, Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, and California. His works were well-received in Oklahoma at the Cherokee Heritage Museum’s “Trail of Tears” exhibit in 2004. Stokes “respects the earth and all of its wonders…like magical sunsets.” He suggests we should all, “take a few moments to look beyond the obvious.” Stokes feels that it makes a difference between “just being alive and living.” “As an artist my hopes are that I can see enough beauty and that people can see that beauty in the works that I have done.” SOURCEBOOK 2016

Creative Zone All’s fair in love and art

for Fallbrook couple

Ceramic artist and owner of CR Studio4 Robin Vojak, works on a custom ceramic table design inside her Temecula studio.

by Sandra Shrader Cy and Robin Vojak are plagued by a million creative ideas. Well, perhaps not a million, but the Fallbrook couple whose combined artistic talents run the gamut from sculpting movie props to fine art to tile and mosaic art is truly rich in creative accomplishments. Whether it’s for dinosaur haunts, alien spacecrafts, ancient Egyptian temples or panels of Chinese dragons, Cy Vojak has made a name for himself as a consummate prop sculptor in the film, event, and fair industry. “Over the years, I have had a lot of fun creating props for every scene imaginable,” said Cy, who has worked on movies directed by Steven Spielberg and James Cameron, among other notable film makers. “Anything from building jungle waterfalls for the dinosaur scenes in ‘The Lost World, Jurassic Park’ to making the ‘Turboman’ toy that everyone wants in the Christmas movie ‘Jingle All the Way’.” A trip into Cy Vojak’s Fallbrook studio reveals an artist’s life lived with gusto. Surfboards hang next to the prop of an enormous foot and leg of an ancient Egyptian, giant molds of the continents adorn the walls, the front facade of a Mexican hacienda lines up along one side, and all manner of set scenery components are stacked in the rafters overhead. And his studio is where one will find Indiana Jones’ lost ark. Not the actual ark, but an identical replica constructed by the artist for San Diego’s 2012 Comic-Con, the hugely popular annual four-day event that showcases pop culture elements from films, video games, toys, comics and other entertainment media.

“Lucasfilm called me about building an Indiana Jones’ set for the 2012 Comic-Con event,” said Cy, adding that the film company was promoting the Blu-Ray DVD release of the collection of all four Indiana Jones’ movies in one collection. “So I replicated the Well of Souls—and the event used real snakes for effect!—and the ark of the covenant itself.” But it wasn’t an easy task to create the replicas because the original props from the movies had long been discarded, said Cy, who sculpts out of mediums such as styrofoam, particularly polystyrene foam and urethane foam. “The studio didn’t keep the props after the movies were made because storing scenery sets for years is not feasible for the film industry,” he explained. “So, with the ark, for example, all I had to work with for research were the film clips which showed the Egyptian ornamental designs on the lid and body. And I had to create the molds and find the right ornamentation. It was a quite a challenge, but it was a lot of fun too.” With computer-generated imagery being used in movies today, Cy, who not only has a masters degree in fine arts, but also holds a general contractor’s license to do home remodel projects for his “day job,” has more recently focused much of his attention on making large scenery props for fairs and educational events. He makes many of his projects durable enough “to withstand years of kid contact,” he said. While the scenery props take up much of the space of Cy’s studio, the artist’s smaller mixed media assembly sculptures offer just as much viewing delight. A combination of organic elements like driftwood, snake skins, and

seed pods assembled with throwaway detritus such as rusty tools, bent metal, torn paintings and anything the artist finds interesting, the assemblage art pieces are both thoughtful and humorous. “I take what other people think of as junk, and give it a new context, a new life in my art pieces,” said Cy, adding that his assemblage art pieces can take six months to two years to complete. “And I transform all that stuff that would normally get thrown out into a visual statement about life and culture today.” Mixing traditional and cutting edge ideas in another art medium, that of ceramic and metal tile work, is Robin Vojak’s forte.

Considered to be one of the country’s top artisan tile makers, Robin has been an artistic force in that industry for more than 27 years, including designing tile lines for the past seventeen years for Ann Saks, Inc., renowned for its high-end collections of hand-crafted tiles. As with Cy, Robin is a degreed artist, and and the pottery and ceramics maven first started making tiles in the 1990s as a way “to do something creative, make money and still be able to raise our four kids,” she said. “But I still enjoy coming up with the

It’s a lot of work because we do everything in-house, but it’s so rewarding and no two tiles are ever the same.” CRStudio4 is a Temecula-based tile studio and foundry, and has three kilns and a smelter. It is one of a few dozen remaining companies which produce lines of artisan and hand-crafted tiles in the United States, said Robin. Whether it’s geometrics, raised bubbles, organic designs reminiscent of lakes and wood moss or natural brick layered with metal glazes, Robin is constantly finding sources all around her just waiting to be expressed artistically. And there have been a few instances in which inspiration arrived “when I was drinking the fruit of the grape,” she said with a laugh. Creative inspiration can be both a catalyst and a source of

friendly friction between two artists who are married to each other, according to Robin. “I will get this great idea for a project and start to talk about the design or the look I want, and then Cy, who is a fantastic artist himself, will start to map out how it can be done or if maybe another approach is more do-able,” said Robin, adding that the couple never seems to run out of artistic ideas. “There is a lot of give and take, but, I have to say, our art is all the better for it.”

Law Offices of Clay R. Sides Winning With Integrity


lay R. Sides, a personal injury attorney who has owned and operated the Law Offices of Clay R. Sides in Fallbrook for 29 years, likes to win. Better yet, he knows how to win. “I’ve tried, give or take, 130 jury trials and won almost all, you can count the number of losses on one had,” said Sides. “I’m very proud of the fact I have a very high win percentage.” Sides provides legal representation to people injured in automobile, motorcycle, or bicycle incidents, as well as people involved in dog bite cases. The nature of injuries include wrongful death, traumatic brain injuries, soft-tissue injuries and open wounds. Sides is a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law, and UCLA (with Honors). He prides himself on being a “hands-on lawyer” who reviews every case personally and does all his own trial work. “You hire a lawyer, you get a lawyer,” said Sides. “You get me.” What a client gets in Sides is an attorney who often wins settlements without going to trial. “I have a reputation built on integrity and long-standing relationships, and I think a lot of times people will pay me

“I’ve tried, give or take, 130 jury trials and won all but two of them... I have a very high win percentage.” before a trial because they know if I go to trial I am going to get a good verdict,” said Sides. “That’s because I’m prepared for every case. Sometimes I take longer than other attorneys, but I’ve been told by several people that I always get more than other attorneys because I’m prepared and ready for trial.” Sides, who also has satellite offices in Temecula and Big Bear, opened his practice in Fallbrook in 1987 and knows the scrutiny a business receives in a small town. “Fallbrook was a real small town when I started practicing and in a small town, your results speak better than any advertisement,” said Sides. “There’s a lot of communication, and to survive in a small town you have to be honest, you have to be fair and you have to be good.” Sides and his wife, Jill, have been married for more than 25 years and live on a 47-acre horse ranch in Rainbow, where he raises his own racehorses. They have three children: Jesse, who is in his second year in law school in San Diego; Carlene, who is

in her senior year at San Diego State; and Curtis, a varsity baseball player at Great Oak High School. “Jesse will be joining the practice, and what’s nice about that is it lets everyone know that this business is going to be in existence for a long time,” said Sides. Sides’ success rate allows him to enjoy many victory dinners. When asked about a dining tip, Sides offered up this advice – pro bono – to Sourcebook readers. “If you want to go to a great local restaurant, go see Bill and Nitza Ehmcke at The Gambling Cowboy in Old Town Temecula (42072 Fifth St.),” said Sides. “I promise you, you’re not going to find a better steak for 50 square miles.”

eventually, he decided to focus on yellow pages exclusively. “Yellow pages are universal, so it was easy to expand our market. We were the first to come out with PC-based directory solutions for small publishers. We eventually were in 54 countries and creating directories in 24 languages.” The company was originally called Composition Technology International, but concentrating on yellow pages, in 1991 he stopped all other non-yellow page business and changed the name to Yellow Magic. Magic? You may ask, “What does magic have to do with technology?” Ron replies with a quote from author Arthur C.

Jackson & Parkinson, Trial Attorneys Robert W. Jackson Changing the Perception of Attorneys

Robert W. Jackson at Trial Stars Dinner


hen Robert W. Jackson puts on his suit for court, it comes with more than three decades of experience as a respected nationwide trial attorney. His message is simple and heartfelt, “I want to change the public perception of lawyers, and I do that by focusing on one client at a time and doing the very best that I can for each and every client.” Robert’s first law office was opened in

Fallbrook in 1984, and the Fallbrook High School alumnus expanded the small town practice over the years to include three Southern California locations where he attracts and serves clients from around the nation. Jackson specializes in catastrophic injury cases, and is joined by a partner who is also a personal injury attorney. “We treat people like they’re family,” Jackson said. “Every aspect of the case is handled on an individual basis.” His caseloads have ranged from wrongful deaths and traumatic brain injuries to pedestrian cases and construction site accidents. To date, he has taken more than 80 cases to jury trial and mediated and

arbitrated hundreds of cases. But it’s no secret amongst legal affiliates that a high percentage of cases handled by Robert W. Jackson are ultimately settled before they reach a trial. “We have outstanding trial results. The insurance industry knows we’re not going to settle for anything short of full justice,” Jackson said. Jackson has been awarded either “Trial Lawyer of the Year” or “Outstanding Trial Lawyer” six times in his career, and over four times in the past ten years. “Every case that we take in my office has a story, and we strive to be the messenger of that unique and personal story,” he said.

Brett Parkinson Helping the Individual


Brett Parkinson

orking on behalf of others and representing them in court is what Attorney Brett R. Parkinson does best. Often people come into Parkinson’s office feeling mistreated by an insurance company and

confused about how to proceed. The insurance company just didn’t seem to care, they say. Parkinson has found that “if you don’t stand up to the ‘bully’ in those situations, people will keep being mistreated.” Parkinson enjoys being able to use his experience to help level the playing field for his clients. Parkinson’s legal career began as a law clerk to two federal judges. He then worked for several years as a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Utah before he decided to transition to helping people involved in personal injuries. Although it might not seem like a natural transition, Parkinson’s father was a personal injury lawyer, so it was like “going home.” Parkinson works hard and is dedicated to helping clients receive full compensation for their injuries. It is not uncommon for Parkinson to be in his client’s home learning their story. “You can only learn so

Jackson & Parkinson, Trial Attorneys 205 West Alvarado Street | Fallbrook, CA 92028 (760) 723-1295 SOURCEBOOK 2016

much in your office. To really understand how an injury has affected someone, let them walk you around their home, showing you what they can and cannot do. Only at that point, do you know your client’s story well enough to share it with a jury,” says Parkinson. Parkinson’s represents injured persons throughout the state of California and in Utah as well. Currently, the firm has about or over 100 clients in Utah who were affected by the large Wood Hollow Fire in 2012 as well as hundreds of clients in Northern California who were affected by the Butte Fire. The San Diego County-based office of Jackson & Parkinson have enjoyed success in their newly opened office in Riverside County. Parkinson was raised in Indio so it was natural to open up an office in the desert. His father, James Parkinson, is ofcounsel to the firm.

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 is not just about teeth – it’s about people. He enjoys getting to know his patients. 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.”

“Cosmetic dentistry can improve one’s image, and in turn, boost confidence.” 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 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). As a result 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.

Fallbrook attorney and consultant Carl Morrison works under the radar for more accurate rainfall forecasting by Sandra Shrader Whether it’s by rain dances, rain gauges or reams of weather data run through computer models, predicting when, where and how much of the wet stuff will land has been an inexact science since humans started planting crops. Even today, with all the weather balloons, satellites, super computers and radar stations, predicting precipitation continues to

include a frustrating percentage of guesswork about whether or not we will just simply need our umbrellas, but also if floods will happen and reservoirs will overflow. But Carl Morrison, a Fallbrook attorney and president of Morrison & Associates, Inc., anticipates that those percentages will be greatly reduced with a new weather radar unit prototype that uses X-band radar to

AQPI’s expanded radar ability to track the precipitation intensity and location, down to the neighborhood, of a storm’s landfall within two to twelve hours before heavy rain begins is enormously valuable. – Carl Morrison

provide more accurate and unprecedented forecasting of rainfall amount and location in as little as one to two hour’s notice. “There are different radar systems which are used as meteorological tools, but the X-band radar is very useful because it works to fill in the forecasting gaps left by traditional weather radar units,” said Morrison, whose firm is currently overseeing the installation of four of the X-band radar units for a multi-government-agency fourphase project in the San Francisco Bay Area called the Advanced Quantitative Precipitation Information (AQPI) System project. AQPI is part of the Bay Area Integrated Regional Water Management Plan. With the installation of the four X-band radar prototypes and supporting existing and new weather forecasting infrastructure and modeling, the project is the first such weather forecasting of its have been installed there. “Two weather radar systems—the S-band, or NEXRAD, and the C-band—have been in use for decades, but forecasting analyses by those radar systems have been hampered by geographical factors such as mountains or valleys,” Morrison explained. “That is why weather forecasting has always needed to factor in percentages of certainty or uncertainty when it comes to rain forecasts.” Due to its projection of particular wave lengths which can “see” and track raindrops inside of clouds, radar first began to be employed in the 1930s as a meteorological tool. Present-day weather forecasting systems use “Doppler Radar” which emits short bursts of radio waves (or “pulses”) through cloud formations generated by what is rather poetically called atmospheric rivers. The ARs, as they are commonly called, are narrow plumes of moisture such as the Hawaii-to-the-North-American-West-Coast’s Pineapple Express, for example, and are constantly moving through the skies above us. When a radar wave, or beam, hits a moving object such as a raindrop, it echoes back to the radar source which then measures the raindrop’s velocity, thus making it possible to track the direction and intensity of an incoming storm. “When you see those green spots swirling around a weather forecasting map on television, those are actually the radar pulses,” said Morrison, adding that green usually signifies light precipitation, yellow signifies moderate precipitation, and red and purple indicate heavy and very heavy precipitation. The National Weather Service uses what is known as S-Band—or NEXRAD (Next Generation Radar)—radar programs which have been around since the 1970s, but began to be used in the early 1990s. The S-band radars are usually located on fifty-foot towers “in what SOURCEBOOK 2016

looks like giant white soccer balls on top,” Morrison said. “Those are usually permanently installed in the mountains, and are used for near and far range weather observation. But the S-band radar was first used to detect thunderstorms in the Midwest, and they don’t work as effectively in California’s terrain.” C-band radar has also been in use for weather forecasting since the 1980s and, while the C-band radar units can have satellite dishes similar to those “soccer balls” on S-band units, they are usually constructed with much shorter towers, and they are permanently stationed in lower land elevations such as valleys. However, due to their mountain locations, portions of S-band radar beams tend to aim too high over clouds at lower elevations and can overshoot precipitation levels. Conversely, the beams of C-band radar weather units located in valleys can be blocked by surrounding terrain, and thus they cannot reach higher level clouds to measure water moisture. That is where the usefulness of X-band radar for weather forecasting becomes a valuable meteorological tool, Morrison said. “Although X-band radar has been around for a while, its short range wave lengths, higher operating frequencies and higher resolution imagery has become important for filling in the gaps in rainfall forecasting,” he explained. “Not only do we get a much narrower margin of error as far as when a storm will hit, we also can narrow down the location as to where that storm will hit.” Unlike the S-band and C-band radars which operate on longer

wave lengths and lower frequencies, X-band radar is more sensitive and can detect smaller water particles than the older radar systems. The first phase of the AQPI project was completed in January, 2016 with the installation of the first prototype X-band radar unit in Silicon Valley. Three more of the X-band radar units will be added in the third phase of the project along with the installation of another moderate range C-band radar unit in Sonoma County, all of which will augment the Bay Area’s established weather forecasting system of existing S-band and C-band radar units, rain gauges, moisture probes and other technology. The X-band radar prototype units are portable which offers an economic advantage over the other fixed-location radar system units. In addition, X-band radar units are visually less conspicuous and “small enough that we were able to use a crane to install that first X-band radar unit on the top of a building,” said Morrison. According to Morrison, whose company provides negotiation and facilitation services for various projects which need to be coordinated between different government, state and local agencies, the AQPI project came about because the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission became concerned about extreme weather conditions such as this year’s predicted El Niño conditions. The agency was alarmed about the potential for heavy rainfall and how that could impact the agency’s ability to process wastewater. If San Francisco’s combined sewer and stormwater system’s underground storage area becomes too full from street runoff during heavy rains and enough wastewater stored in the holding area cannot be pumped back to the wastewater treatment facility in time, the excess sewage water is forced to flow into the San Francisco Bay, resulting in contamination to the Bay and causing the sewer agency to incur huge fines. Through AQPI’s enhanced weather radar system, wastewater officials will be notified of the need to increase pumping to the wastewater treatment plant. The AQPI project then expanded to include the following participating agencies: Santa Clara Valley Water District, the Sonoma County Water agency, the Bay Area Flood Protection Agencies Association, and the local sponsorship by the San Francisco Estuary Partnership, an organization that oversees wetland and wildlife habitat preservation in and around the San Francisco Bay Delta Estuary. AQPI will provide the estuary officials with information about impending storm surges and other weather-related events affecting the wetlands. www.my-sourcebook.com

Other AQPI participants include the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes based at Scripps Institute of Oceanography in San Diego, the U. S. Geological Survey agency, and Colorado State University, one of the pioneer institutions in the development of Xband radar systems and X-band radar networks. Water levels at reservoirs and dams would likely also be lowered by releasing water in advance if the AQPI radar system signals heavy rains in the future, thus avoiding spillage and overflows and to accommodate new runoff and rainfall. Since more than 50% of the San Francisco Bay Area’s rain come from atmospheric rivers which flow over the region, AQPI’s expanded radar ability to track the precipitation intensity and location, down to the neighborhood, of a storm’s landfall within two to twelve hours before heavy rain begins is enormously valuable for flood control management and dispatching emergency personnel to areas before those locations are flooded, said Morrison. “Unlike now with the more traditional weather radar systems, emergency responders will know which places are going to have

rains and possible floods, and go there rather than to where it might be raining,” he said. One of Morrison’s tasks is to coordinate funding for the AQPI project. California’s Department of Water Resource, which manages the state’s water resources. He assisted in obtaining $19 million in grant monies from California’s Proposition 84, the Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond which voters passed in 2006. The $19 million will fund the first three phases of the AQPI project. Morrison will continue to facilitate negotiations for funding of the project’s final phase four, which includes offshore weather forecasting analyses done via the use of aircraft and drones. Of course, his role will involve bringing together all the remaining participating agencies—and even the National Football League because the 2016 Super Bowl 50 will be played in Santa Clara—as the project moves ahead. “There are a lot of meetings, presentations and horse trading that has to happen with a big project like this,” Morrison said. “But it’s going to be worth it in the end, come rain or shine.”

Smiling Through It All Not even life-threatening health challenges keep Aunjelique Andersen from serving others by Robin Thayer Courtesy photos

You could be saving somebody and not realizing it...God put you there for that moment.

– Aunjelique “Jeeky” Andersen


It’s not unusual when you first meet Aunjelique “Jeeky” Andersen, to be greeted with a beautiful smile and a face that radiates pure joy. After meeting her seven years ago, my life, and I’m sure many of those who have come to know Jeeky as well, has never been the same since. May her story be an inspiration to all. Jeeky has always been very passionate about helping people, especially children in need. With a background working in television, she double majored in Social Services and Video/ Television in college, shortly after she married Chad Andersen in 2001. That same year she started her own photography/video business, Jeeky Productions. In 2005, Jeeky worked for a year at Casa de Amparo, a children’s shelter in Oceanside. She then worked for The Outdoor Channel in Temecula. In 2008, Jeeky wanted to spend more time with her 8-year-old son, Kevin, so she started working with Bonsall Elementary School’s extended daycare program. In May of 2010, Jeeky had just turned 31. She was planning a summer program to teach a Television and Video Enrichment program to local children, combining her two passions. She also had her sights on running for Honorary Mayor of Bonsall because she wanted to serve her community. Then came the diagnosis that July. After delays because doctors thought she

was “too young to have breast cancer” and many tests, Jeeky was diagnosed with Stage 3 triple negative breast cancer (at that time only found in three percent of women), and the cancer had spread into her lymph nodes. Being diagnosed as triple negative meant that her cancer would not respond to three common treatments. With those unavailable, she would need to endure one of the most extreme treatments available: harsh doses of chemotherapy followed by extensive radiation. But not before a double mastectomy was performed at the end of August. Did that deter Jeeky from her plans? Of course not. She went on with her enrichment program. She had just started her first round of chemotherapy when she held her first Honorary Mayor fundraiser. With her family and friends cheering, she was named Honorary Mayor of Bonsall in October. She served in that role for the next year, all while still enduring her cancer treatments. Two months into the chemotherapy and extremely ill from it, Jeeky was www.my-sourcebook.com

Jeeky and son Kevin in 2010. Jeeky had just had her long hair cut to donate to Locks of Love. Her chemo treatments were about to begin.

Jeeky’s husband, Chad, shaved his head in honor of his wife. Kevin grew out his hair so he could donate to Locks of Love. Jeeky was now undergoing chemo treatments.

also busy arranging for giving away Christmas trees to needy families -- a family tradition. On March 17, 2011, Jeeky finished her treatments and was declared cancer free. Her prognosis: 30-40 percent chance that the cancer would return within five years. What did she do? She immediately headed back to working at the extended daycare program, which she loved. In May of that same year, Jeeky, who had run in many different races throughout the years, ran in an annual 5K race that she had run the year before. She was excited to only add 4 minutes to her time! That November, she ran in the Susan G. Komen 5K and noticed that she was having difficulty breathing when running up hills. She assumed that she was still recovering from the chemotherapy treatments.

By the following March, the difficulty in breathing, combined with a racing heart, became more noticeable. Many tests and several doctors later, they narrowed in on the cause. On July 31, 2012, a test was performed at UCSD Thornton Hospital wherein Jeeky was awake while they put a scope into her heart. The outpatient test was supposed to take 30 minutes. When an hour and 30 minutes went by, Jeeky knew there was something wrong. Jeeky was admitted to the hospital after the procedure. The doctor and his head nurse entered her room. The first words the nurse said to this 32-year-old woman were, “You are dying.” Jeeky had Pulmonary Hypertension. It was so far advanced by the time she was diagnosed that her right lung and heart were severely damaged. They told her that she would probably have died of heart failure within the next two weeks. It was a slowly progressing dis-

ease that started in her lung, probably when she was a teenager. This then put too much stress on her heart. To make matters worse, all of the breast cancer treatments just masked the symptoms. Her prognosis: hopefully 10 years if she had medicine pumped directly into her heart and all went well. A heart and lung transplant were out of the question because she could not be put on the donor list until she was five years cancer free. At this point, she had just reached the one-year mark. The tube that would be used to pump the life-saving medicine was placed into her heart. That pump has been on her hip ever since. If removed for only 10 minutes, she would start to experience heart failure.

Jeeky was told that 100% of all patients in her condition experience depression, usually severe. Jeeky responded, “Not me!” Yes, tears flowed that day and many times since. She has had some very difficult and painful days from medicine side effects, but that beautiful smile of hers still blesses everyone around her. Her doctors had doubted her saying she would not become depressed. They no longer do. In fact, they bring medical students in to talk to her when she is getting her continued checks and treatments. Jeeky says she has a choice. She could choose to be sad, which she portrays by dramatically saying, “Ohhhhh, I have 10 years left… this sucks…being Negative Nancy all the time,” or she can be joyful that she has been given a gift, happily saying, animated with a huge smile, “What am I going to do with my 10 years?!” She then commented that this reminds her of Jesus’ parable about the 10 talents – are you going to bury or invest? Of course, Jeeky chooses to invest. And what has Jeeky done with that pump at her side in the last four years? So many things and she is just getting started. She has followed a dream and in December 2012 she performed in the first of several plays. She not only has speaking and singing parts, she tap dances! She has to be careful not to get her heart rate up too high while dancing, but she still dances – and smiles that beautiful smile.

If you ever see me crying for what seems to be no apparent reason, never think that it is because I am weak or I have given up. It is simply because I feel loss, triumph, and wonder. Loss because I have lost close to a year of my life, triumph over a battle, and wonder because I always wonder if people see me the same way I see myself. – Aunjelique “Jeeky” Andersen, March 8, 2011

Speaking of not getting her heart rate up, Jeeky had five doctor visits in one day scheduled at Thornton Hospital. She and her husband went to the nearby Torrey Pines Running in the Vista Strawberry 5K in 2010. Gliderport to have lunch. The next thing she knew, she was jumping off that seaside cliff with an instructor in a paraglider. She said the flight was amazing. What a great way to celebrate because the date was March 17, 2014, her third anniversary of being cancer free! At her appointment that afternoon, as part of monitoring how the heart medicine is working, the doctor asked her what she had been doing. Can you imagine the look on her doctor’s face when she told him she had just jumped off a cliff in a paraglider? Priceless. But then her doctors know that Jeeky is someone very special. When others in her same condition might be curled up in a ball in a dark room depressed, she is out in the sunlight living life to the fullest. When asked what is on her “bucket list,” the first thing she men-


tions is what she has already started doing – being a mentor to teens in the Solutions for Change Teen Program. She has also been working on another item on her list. As of February of this year, her family has completed the very intense Foster to Adopt screening process and are now on the list. The child that is fostered by Jeeky and her family will be given an incredible gift. Why is mentoring, donating and volunteering so important to her? She says, with tears in her eyes, “You could be saving somebody and not realizing it…God could put you there for that moment.” How many years does Jeeky have left on this earth? She’s not sure, but she goes unafraid into the future because of her faith saying, “I am not worried about where I am going, because I already know…if He takes me tomorrow, I am fine.” Writer’s note: May this story inspire you to cherish each heartbeat as Jeeky does. Live life to the fullest and love with all your heart. It is not the quantity of the years, but the quality of those years.

ravery is defined as: “Ready to face and endure danger or pain.” Synonyms include, intrepid, bold, daring and courageous. All of these words can be used to describe Fallbrook’s Rich Minga, who works in the entertainment industry as a stuntman. In his chosen profession, bravery is of the utmost importance. Minga’s inaugural year was 1994, when he worked as a stunt driver in the television show, “Baywatch.” Now a seasoned veteran, he has worked on many feature films and television shows. “I make a living dying – I get shot, burned, blown up, drowned, and smashed by dinosaurs,” he said. In the 2003 film “Master and Commander” Minga said he was “killed about four or five times – drowned, hit by cannon balls, stabbed and washed down a flight of stairs by a huge wave.” The “wave” was actually water from a 500-gallon tank. “The detail on that set was unbelievable,” Minga recalled. “Every day we went into makeup for an hour… they made our eyes bloodshot, made us look exhausted and painted our teeth brown and yellow…” “Snakes on a Plane” (2006), was initially filmed in Canada, but the fuselage of

the plane was flown to Los Angeles for a re-shoot to give the “PG-13” film an “R” rating. “We did re-shoots for three days,” explained Minga. “I was a human pad – climbing over chairs and protecting actors.” For many stunts Minga drives motorcycles and cars – and crashes motorcycles and cars. Stunt driving is dangerous work, and as Minga noted, “Things can go wrong – weather, equipment failure – it is not an exact science.” Even changes in positioning of props can affect a stunt driver’s performance. “You can’t just put a hot dog cart on a corner without telling anyone.” From set decorators to special effects personnel – they all need to be vigilant about changes. If a hot dog cart was suddenly placed in a different position than what was originally planned, the driver might not be able to see a pedestrian on the corner, and that pedestrian was his cue to “slam on the brakes and slide the car.” “The smallest detail is important,” Minga stressed. Not all stuntmen have a love for driving, but Minga is one of those with a passion for it. Minga exceled in off-road racing at an early age, and in 1980 he www.my-sourcebook.com

raced in his first Baja 1000, finishing 6th in his class. In 1987 he was at the pinnacle of the sport when he won the offroad world championship. Minga was honored as the “1987 Overall Champion” for SCORE/HDRA by winning six of the eight races in the series. Actor Patrick Dempsey raced with Minga for the first 100 miles of the 2006 Baja 1000. During the 100-mile trip with Dempsey, a helicopter followed them along the route. He was then airlifted out to appear on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” In November 2015 Minga completed another Baja 1000 – winning in his class with a BF Goodrich sponsored off-road race car. This was his fourth Baja 1000 victory.

Dust was ever-present when Minga drove a support vehicle in the “Paris to Dakar” race in January 2007. The 21-day, 7,000-mile endurance test, which concluded in Africa, led them over dunes, rocks, and other rough terrain. “It was a life-changing event,” he said. For the last three seasons Minga has worked on a Discovery Channel reality show called “Street Outlaws” (2013-present). Since the show highlights illegal street racing, there is no need for stunt drivers, so Minga was hired as a stunt coordinator and is in charge of safety. “It is a reality show. These are top notch street racers who own their own cars.” Minga explained. “This show is very dangerous.

It’s street racing with telephone poles and fire hydrants – it’s not a set.” Minga is also a BF Goodrich Brand Ambassador and Performance Team member, traveling the country with public appearances, ride and drive programs, and tire testing. As if he is not busy enough, Minga works as a driving instructor at the Ford Racing Minga as a Cuban policeman in “Charlie’s Angels.” School in Utah; and as a driv(TV-2011) ing instructor and guide for Wide Open Excursions. Because he is an expert on Baja travel, and an accomplished motorcyclist, Minga has found employment behind the handlebars as a guide for Baja Bound Adventures, which specializes in motorcycle tours. He recently returned from leading seven clients (riding dirt bikes) on a 1,700 mile trip. Riding motorcycles from Tecate to Cabo San Lucas – one end of Baja to the other – is a challenge, but Minga feels a great deal of satisfaction as he guides the riders. The area where they ride is desolate, but they do stop at an occasional village where the residents view them as celebrities – asking for autographs. “The villagers come flying out of their houses and we stop and talk with the kids – then give them stickers and candy,” Minga related. “When you take these riders to Baja and introduce them to the culture, it changes them forever,” Minga explained. “That is the magic of what I do down there.” Living with danger has its challenges, but Minga presses on. How does he cope with the danger? “Crashing a car or dangling on a cable fifty feet in the air can be scary,” Minga confessed. “My Christian faith comes into play. God gives me strength, support and protection. I pray before stunts – then I find peace – and am ready.” Even when Minga works as a stunt coordinator, rather than a performer, prayers are still a key part of preparation. “Whether I am slightly involved, or very involved in a stunt – I always pray.” It has been a wild ride for this bold, daring man. Each experience has been different, and each experience has had its own challenges and rewards. Where will his next adventure take him? I didn’t get a chance to ask. Like the intrepid adventurer he is, Rich Minga was off in a cloud of dust. SOURCEBOOK 2016

People want better, cleaner water. That’s what I do. I’m covering your health, home or property, your appliances, and fixtures. – Harry Jones, founder of PureartH2o

Once scale forms on your faucets and glass, it’s very difficult to remove.

“The build-up of mineral deposits in your water heater, faucets, and shower valves is a costly problem, particularly in hard water areas, where water contains large amounts of calcium and magnesium,” explained Jones. “Mineral deposits will start to form corrosion the minute your appliances and fixtures are installed. “Scalexpel water conditioner provides the green solution to residential hard water problems and has proven effective in significantly reducing mineral build-up on faucets, shower valves, and tankless water heaters,” continued Jones. “After it’s installed, it goes to work on your existing scale as well. And with proper care, it keeps all your plumbing faucets, fixtures and appliances looking like new, and keeps maintenances low too.” Jones added that his products are “a must”for people doing a home remodel. “If you’re remodeling your home or buy a new house, you invested a lot of money in your new faucets and appliances, Protect them!” said Jones.

Jones said all of his products work to reduce the chloramine in your water. Chloramine is used by San Diego area water districts to disinfect water supplies. “Since many water districts switched from chlorine to chloramines for disinfection of drinking water, reports have surfaced that chloramines may damage Reverse osmosis systems pipes and appliances,” said Jones. “It has provide the whole household been linked to pinholes pitting in cop- with bottled-quality water. per pipes.

Local Invaluable Benefits of


by Julie Reeder Honey has been enjoyed both as a sweetener and for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. It’s been used for soaps, creams, and cosmetics. It’s great for cooking, mixes well in baked goods, salad dressings, tea, and pairs well with cheeses, fruit, yogurts, etc. Did you know there were 2,000 year old vats of sealed honey found in King Tut’s tomb? The honey is believed to still be edible. Honey is the only food produced by insects that humans can eat. It’s the only food item created with the sole purpose of being stored. Why? Since bees need to eat during the winter, and plants aren’t flowering, they needed a food source that wouldn’t spoil after a few months. They needed something non-perishable (at least for a year or so) and nutritious — they needed honey. During its production, the bees slightly overcompensate, creating a nutritious food that has the potential to last for hundreds of years or more. No other food source is created this way and we now know that in addition to its great taste and medicinal purposes, it contains great nutrition. Is all honey equal? No. Local raw honey is the best. Our area produces some wonderfully rich and tasteful honey, including orange blossom and sage. The very best raw honey will also be organic – beekeepers must adhere to very strict regulation in order to be certified organic. While it’s hard to pin down an exact definition of “raw” honey, a label that says “untreated” or “unpasteurized” may be an indication, but not a guarantee. The words “natural” or “pure” don’t mean anything in regards to honey processing.


Many beekeepers consider honey raw only if it has not been heated above 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it is heated above 105 degrees, the consistency changes along with the taste. Pasteurized honey is heated to increase shelf life and prevent crystallization. It can be heated to 161 degrees or higher and at that point, many of its beneficial properties are compromised. Raw honey typically contains small wax particles and pollen. Honey in its purest raw form is alkalinizing in the stomach and contains amylase, an enzyme that helps break down foods containing starch. Strained honey, also known as filtered honey, has had the particles removed, but not the pollen. Much of the honey found in grocery stores may contain corn syrup or cane sugar. In order to test your honey to see if it is unadulterated, combine a tablespoon of honey to a cup of water and see if it dissolves easily. Real honey doesn’t dissolve very easily in water. Or, place a cotton wick in a tablespoon of honey and light it. Honey will burn. Bee pollen also is very valuable. It is the male seed of a flower blossom, collected by honey bees and combined with the insects’ digestive enzymes. It’s considered by many as a perfect superfood because it’s so highly assimilable, and its nourishment, containing nearly all nutrients humans need to thrive, including protein. It is 40 percent protein, with about half in the form of free amino acids that are ready to be used directly by the body. It’s even richer in protein than any animal source and contains more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. In addition to the luxurious benefits of

If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left. – Albert Einstein

honey bee products, bees are so important to our agricultural area for pollenization. Did you know that each bee visits 50 to 100 flowers during a collection trip? And they do it for free! More than 85 percent of the Earth’s food system relies on pollinators to exist. Albert Einstein is credited with saying, “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years of life left.” The honeybee population of the planet has been in steady decline since the 1940s. There has been much written about it, being commonly referred to as colony collapse disorder (CCD). During the winter of 2012/2013 it is believed that there was a 30 percent loss in honeybee colonies. Researchers are working to identify the problem and rectify it. Some of the possible culprits are believed to be pesticides, pathogens, parasites, or environmental stressors. Some believe it may also have something to do with wireless signals confusing their communication systems. Whatever the cause, what can you do to promote healthy bee activity? Create wildflower areas for bees and adopt less aggressive, less pesticide-intensive practices, especially the use of pesticides with neonicotinoids. This way we can contributing to the health and beauty of our area – nutritionally and agriculturally! www.my-sourcebook.com

OPEN Mon-Fri 8-5 & Sat 8-2

Roy Moosa grew up in New Jersey, so his first exposure to the wide open spaces was when he came to California in 1971 to attend University of Southern California (USC). There he obtained a bachelor’s and master’s in Cinema and after graduation moved to Orange County and worked for Fortune 500 companies as their advertising and media manager. In 1982, Moosa started up his own video and advertising company and produced TV commercials, corporate presentations, and eventually became a public communications specialist. Moosa moved to Fallbrook in 1994 because he was so impressed with the quaint rural character of the town. He decided this was the place to live for him, his wife Christine, and their two daughters, Jennifer and Lauren. In 2005 he purchased a commercial building in the downtown portion of the village and set up his business, which by then included a real estate brokerage, a tax consultant business, and a licensed automobile dealer specializing in classic cars. Roy’s first venture in taking on a leadership role in the community was when he was elected President of the Fallbrook Vintage Car Club in 2009. He worked hard at organizing and building up its membership and reputation to the point that in 2015 the club enjoyed its largest and most successful car show ever, which drew an attendance of over 20,000 people. He also envisioned the potential for retaining the rural character of the village and its charm, which many of the surrounding communities had tried to do. In 2014 he became President of the Fallbrook Historical Society, which up until then had done a good job in maintaining historical records of Fallbrook but needed fresh energy. Like the car club, he began building membership, working on publicity and established a downtown presence in the Juice Bar on Main Ave. More recently, Roy worked to put together a merger of the Historical Society and the historic Reche Schoolhouse organization that further expands the overall collection of Fallbrook’s history into one unit. His goal is to continue to focus attention on the society and the rich history of Fallbrook as www.my-sourcebook.com

Courtesy photos

well as expanding its presence in the downtown area. In 2014, Roy took on yet another endeavor and became President of the Fallbrook Village Association (FVA) and began working with the Chamber and the downtown merchants to develop special programs to attract visitors. One of the most recent successes was with Hot Summer Nights. After Fallbrook Connections Networking founded the events, the FVA took over sponsorship and the last two years created “Fallbrook Summer Nights.” The goal of these events was to attract families by creating a small town festival feeling. During those evenings, attendees enjoyed displays, vendor booths, music and dancing, car shows, and entertainment for children. Each night had a different theme. Roy also chairs the Fallbrook Revitalization Committee and coordinates the use of the Vince Ross Village Square at Alvarado and Main Ave., the Heyneman Park at Beech and Mission, and the Fallbrook Library parking lot, which is a parking trust. In addition, he is an elected member of the Fallbrook Community Planning Group that meets once a month to review planning and land use issues. However, the most admirable aspect about Roy’s activities is that he manages, in a very calm and unruffled manner, to carry out all of these civic-minded endeavors while still operating his real estate business (Sun Realty), classic car sales (Horizon Motors) and his tax consulting business (Sentry Financial Services). When he is asked why he involves himself in so many endeavors, most of them without remuneration, his response is that he is “on a mission to help revitalize Fallbrook by preserving and promoting what the village already has, and that is the ‘Charm of Small One of the “Fallbrook Summer Nights” events that Roy worked to produce in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce and Town America.’” the downtown merchants.

Ongoing renovations help Fallbrook’s oldest church keep its heritage intact by Sandra Shrader

If Norman Rockwell had ever traveled to by members of the Methodist Episcopal Fallbrook in the last century, there’s a good Church, a religious movement that began chance that the iconic artist who captured to be popular in United States shortly after quaint scenes of American life would have the American Revolutionary War. In 1965, been inspired to do a painting of the First ownership of the church changed to First Christian Church. Christian Church. They both would have been roughly Although funds have been limited for the same age. Rockwell was born in 1894, repairs, the largest renovation project is just a few years after construction of the nearly finished because eighty percent of small, picturesque house of worship the roof replacement recently has been with its splendid steeple and bell tower Stained glass on the second floor of First Christian Church in Fallbrook. done, he said.

Unlike the artist, the church’s stained glassed foyer. “However, as was a common design Shane Gibson photos however, who died in 1978, the little whitecomponent for churches constructed in the shingled church on the hillside corner of Fig Street and Mission late 19th century, the pitch of our church’s roof was built at a steep Avenue is still standing. Its nearly 135-year-old structure a tangible angle so there were safety issues, and we couldn’t offset the cost by link to the days when the railroad first brought new settlers to using volunteers to help with the re-roofing,” said Galbraith. “But Fallbrook. we’ve made good progress, and once the rest of the new roofing is But as with all buildings of historic years, the First Christian done, then we’ll be looking at other repairs such as upgrading the Church is constantly in need of loving care, according to its pastor building’s electrical and plumbing systems.” Gary Galbraith, who has been leading the church’s congregation The current congregation at the First Christian Church is about since November of 2015. seventy-five people, according to the pastor, and at a maximum “Our church is the oldest church in Fallbrook.

dry rot is an issue in other parts of the building including its carved corbels and fancy wooden moldings. “Over the years, moisture has gotten inside some of the decorative elements, for example,” he said. “The corbels look just fine from the outside because they have been painted over and painted over, but they are filled with dry rot so they need to be replaced.” Preventing damage to the church’s exterior from water runoff on the hillside streets is another matter that needs to be be addressed, Galbraith continued, noting that affordable solutions included low barriers of brick or stone around the base of the building. Also, not to be overlooked for overhaul are the stained glass windows which are original to the structure, he added, explaining that over time the leading that holds the colorful glass pieces together has worn down, causing the glass to “sag and bow out in some places.” According to historical records, First Christian Church was originally built at a cost of $3500, but congregation members were able to raise $2700, leaving a debt of $800. Galbraith wishes that the repair costs needed to keep the church, its steeple, and its classrooms and kitchen (added between 19301940) were as manageable as what it cost to build it in 1888. He estimates that repair expenses for the antique building could be as much as $150,000, and fundraising has been a very slow process. But the pastor is committed to the cause. “It’s a constant labor of love, and we’ve put a lot of elbow grease and dedication into keeping our church building as safe and beautiful as it is,” said Galbraith. “And we plan to keep on doing that. This church is an important part of the community, past and present.” And in this age of mega-churches with tilt-up concrete walls and theater-style seating, such devotion to keeping the historical and petite First Christian Church, whose bell rang in the birth of the last century, standing tall in Fallbrook throughout the 21st century too is reassuring indeed. First Christian Church renovations include a new roof.


Gary Galbraith is the pastor of First Christian Church, located at 318 West Fig Street in Fallbrook, CA 92028. For more information, call 760-7287649 or visit www.facebook.com/ FCCofFallbrook/

Jack Story The Music Man by Chuck Tillotson

Jack Story was born in 1934 in Fallbrook and has lived his entire life in this charming village community except for a two-year stint in the Army. In the early days of his life, Fallbrook was a farming community, so Story had to combine the chores of farm work with education. While he performed farm chores very well, he was quite self-conscious in school and found achievement in scholastics very challenging. School was quite competitive for Story; his peers could spell better, learn arithmetic faster and even excel in sports more than he could. So, it was a music teacher that began Story’s lifelong adventure with music. His school music teacher told his parents that Story seemed to have an aptitude for music. His father asked him if he wanted to play an instrument and after saying yes, Story was presented with an alto saxophone that had been in the family. Story learned how to play the sax very quickly and it helped him gain confidence in himself. His music teacher was impressed with his ability and began scheduling special performances for Story all over town, some out of town and even at music festivals where he always achieved a superior rating. And, with a last name like Story, it wasn’t hard for people to remember him. As time went on, Story also developed an interest in singing and in 1952 he joined a local group that sang barbershop harmony. In 1954, the Barbershop Singers called themselves the Avocado Empire Chapter of Barbershoppers and became affiliated with the International Society now located in Nashville, Tenn. After a few years the Avocado Empire group changed its name to the Palomar Pacific Chapter of Barbershop Singers as it remains today. In 1955 Story was drafted into the Army and his music background and ability placed him with the 282nd Army Band stationed in Fort Jackson near Columbia, S.C. where he served out his two

years of duty. While there, he met his wife Shirley and after he was discharged, they returned to Fallbrook where Story began a career in agriculture by managing a 55-acre avocado grove for 15 years. Eventually, Story became recognized for his grove management skills and that led to managing avocado groves for other people as a business, which he did for the remainder of his active career. However, managing the business of farming and the groves didn’t prevent Story from continuing his association with the Music Men Chorus of the Palomar Pacific Chapter of Barbershop Singers. He became very active in this association and throughout the years in addition to harmony singing he has served as Music Director and held most of the Board positions including President of the group. For over 20 years he also sang in a quartet called the “4 FOR 4.” In the world of Barbershopping, they were well known throughout the western states. Over the last 62 years, Barbershop singing and playing the sax was his avocation, and he is still actively involved with both forms of music. Upon request, Story plays his sax at various events as well as continuing to sing barbershop regularly with the Music Men Chorus. Another avid interest in Story’s life has been the participation and involvement in the Fallbrook Historical Society. Since joining the Society in the early 70s, Story has served this organization in many ways including tenure on its Board as a Member at Large, Vice President, President and Landscape Manager as well as a docent. He has written many articles about the rich history of Fallbrook including a booklet of his own memories of his life in this town. Story is also a treasured resource for anyone needing historical information about Fallbrook in the days gone by. After all these years, Jack Story is still full of enthusiasm for life, has a strong Christian faith and is looking forward to the future for many more years of music and fun.

DBCS makes


Rainbow Nation

By Ruth M. Haferkamp (Formerly Ruth M. Haring)


n May 12, 1987, the Drakensberg Boys Choir School (DBCS) took a historic first step towards the “South African Rainbow Nation.” A first (to my best knowledge) combining a white choir, (the DBC) and, a black choir, (the Kavango Choir) to tour together in the then-South Africa/South West Africa. A first also for the DBCS, since the inception of the school in 1967, had never previously pursued the concept of conducting a concert tour with another choir. It all began in the latter part of 1986, while in my capacity as the Director of Public Relations for the DBCS. Having received an invitation to attend a luncheon at the SABC-TV studios in Johannesburg, along with local personalities, there was a member of the South African Defence Force (SADF). Lively conversations were flowing over lunch, when the military representative approached and commented to me, “You must be very proud to be the Public Relations Director for the DBCS.” My immediate reply was, “Yes indeed, proud and honored.” He then proceeded to tell me about a military choir consisting of young black men, namely, the Kavango Choir, members of the SADF RUNDU 32 Battalion located in South West Africa. Not hesitating a beat, I replied, “Wouldn’t it be a marvelous opportunity to pursue the possibility of spotlighting a unique approach and enabling the two choirs (one black choir, one white choir) to travel and perform together on a concert tour in SOURCEBOOK 2016

(the then) South West Africa?” Little did I realize after making that statement, what a tremendous amount of dedication and delicate negotiations that would have to take place, in order to set the stage for such a monumental, historic moment in time, for the DBCS, the Kavango Choir, under the auspices of the South African Defence Force, and, South Africa/ South West Africa. Subsequently, the SADF invited me to a fact-finding mission on the Angolan/SWA border, traveling on a C-130, swooping down and flying over the Okavango River, viewing hippopotami and elephant below us, with the ultimate result, being introduced to the Kavango Choir and a starting point for the groundbreaking negotiations. Upon meeting the Kavango Choir, I was most impressed with how gracious and welcoming the young men were. The pièce de résistance was when the Kavango Choir treated me to an exclusive concert of music, song, and, dance, a moment in time I shall never forget. The next step was an hour-long road trip to meet with Hompa Maria, the Chief of the Kavango People. This was an official/ unofficial meeting for her to share her thoughts and blessings on our upcoming planned historic tour. She was proud, honored and thrilled that such a choir tour would actually come to fruition. In addition, flights were made to Windhoek for negotiating 125

strategic planning meetings of concert venues, and, of course, the intricate infrastructure required for a concert tour of this magnitude. The initiation and creation of the repertoire and dance entailed months of exchanging music cassettes between the two choirs, harmonizing with each other’s choir cassettes, while creating and tweaking the repertoire for this history-making concert tour. The DBC departed Waterkloof Airbase on May 11, 1987. The next day, May 12, after months of planning, the time had arrived for the two choirs to finally meet and assemble on stage. The venue for the first rehearsal, and subsequent, first historic concert of the combined choirs was the Grootfontein City Hall, South West Africa. Yes indeed, a moment of profound history had begun. The first

rehearsal had eyes looking left to right, nervous laughter emerging, and performers trying to get the momentum of the dance steps just right. And then, somehow, some way, there was a touch of wonder unfolding on stage. A black hand reached out to a white one, a white hand reached out to a black one, steadying one another, while formulating the dance steps. Blissfully and almost magically as the rehearsal unfolded, the combined choirs created a sight and sound to behold, while harmonizing and truly creating a goose pimple moment for us all. While the choirs continued their rehearsal session, I quietly slipped out of the auditorium to walk alone in the sunny warmth of the day, enjoying the beauty of the gardens surrounding the city

hall. In a moment of reflection, I felt a tear or two slip down my face. After days, weeks, and months in preparation for this moment, I realized with gratefulness, my mission had been accomplished. As we proceeded to embark on our concert tour, the conductor of the DBC, Mr. Christian Ashley-Botha, and the conductor for the Kavango Choir, Lt. Arno Botes raised their batons, “creating a historical first” for the Rainbow Nation. Our travels extended the width and breadth of South West Africa. Audiences were mesmerized as the two choirs created music entertainment, the likes of which no one had previously experienced before. What a gift it was at the conclusion of each concert to receive such joyous standing ovations from the enthusiastic concert guests. Alas, after an adventurous river cruise, flying in a C-130, Puma Helicopters, and an abundance of heart warming and unforgettable experiences, sadly, the time had arrived for the two choirs to bid adieu. Our final concert performance was held where we had begun, at the Grootfontein City Hall. Again, to our astonishment the City Hall was full to capacity. The intensity of the music performances, both choirs on stage together, song and dance, an eclectic selection of arrangements starting with Beethoven’s Gloria Creation Hymn, to traditional, then on to Barry Manelo and ABBA classics, Music of Israel, and much more. The “Grand Finale” was approaching and as the Kavango Choir sang a farewell song to the DBC, the members of both choirs were visibly emotional. Then the DBC reciprocated with a farewell song to the Kavango Choir. The emotions on stage were so intense that the curtains had to be closed. I left my front row seat and proceeded up on to the stage and behind the stage curtains, to witness the shaking of hands, some tears, and some hugs that these fine boys and young men extended to each other. Conductor Lt. Arno Botes approached me and extended a bear hug with tears in his eyes and said, “Ruth, we did it!” At the conclusion of our unbelievably successful two-week tour, the DBCS Meister Conductor, Christian Ashley-Botha (Bunny) said to me, “Thank you Ruth for pursuing the concept of this historically unique DBC and Kavango Choir concert tour that will transform the image of our school forever. This was a small step for us all who participated in the concert tour, a giant leap forward for the continued focus for the DBCS.” I know for certain each and every young boy present on this momentous concert tour will never forget their unique travels and experiences, while having the opportunity to have contributed to a great historic moment in time. One young DBC member summed up perfectly while on tour when he said, “Mrs. Haring we are being treated like water in the Sahara Desert.” Indeed we were! (Excerpts from Ruth M. Haferkamp’s African Memoirs, submitted to the DBCS to coincide with their 50th Jubilee Year 2017)
