Publisher’s Note

Shane Gibson photo

This year we really wanted to emphasize the natural beauty of the Fallbrook/ Bonsall area. Most of us have chosen to live here because we enjoy the small town feel and the friendliness of the people around us, but I can’t help but believe it’s Julie Reeder mostly because of the beautiful landscape of manicured agricultural properties, old oak trees, flowing streams and the two major river valleys most of us live between or around. How fortunate we are to have the beautiful Santa Margarita River Valley and the San Luis Rey River providing a scenic backdrop for us to enjoy while we drive in and out of town and live our lives. I appreciate the views every single day, and it never gets old for me. My kids, who are grown now, have always enjoyed hiking and playing around the Santa Margarita river, and now they take their kids frequently. While hiking, we’ve met people from out of town who visit Fallbrook, just so they can walk the trails around the river. In previous years’ we’ve featured birds and some of the animals like coyotes and bobcats who call the area home. This year we have more extensive photos featuring area wildlife from birds to caterpillars and everything in between. They also make our lives beautiful. We want to thank the Land Conservancy for providing us the information and photos and for all the work they do, along with the ancillary groups who take care of and protect our area’s natural beauty.  While the events calendar, nonprofit directories and chamber business listings are always helpful, don’t miss the features and stories on some businesses we have in town and the interesting people that you may not know who, along with the efforts of all residents, help make the area great. We hope you enjoy reading about them as much as we enjoy telling their stories.  Do you have any interesting local people you know, or beautiful photos that you think would add to Sourcebook next year? Please don’t hesitate to send us your thoughts, ideas or photos for inclusion in an upcoming publication. I would like to thank my staff who worked tirelessly to create this magazine. They all put their heart and soul into this project and it is something our community can be proud of. I believe Sourcebook is a beautiful representation of our community.

Clay Sides Fallbrook attorney also enjoys success outside of courtroom with his racehorses by Tom Ferrall


ong before he ever picked up a law book, prominent Fallbrook attorney Clay Sides was studying a condition book, a publication produced by racetracks that informs horsemen of the types of races that will be offered on a specific day.

Horse owners and trainers pour over the condition book, which gives extensive and sometimes complex details about each race, in an effort to find – in their parlance – “the right spot” for the horses in their stable. Clay Sides’ father, Robert Sides, knew how to train a horse but had trouble reading the condition book. “I helped him pick races (in which to run in),” said Clay Sides. “I would get a condition book, and he’d say, ‘tell me where we’re going to run.’” Before training racehorses, Robert Sides and his wife, Geri, owned them, and young Clay was along for the ride. “My parents owned horses since I was three,” said Clay, a Southern California native. “They had Quarter Horses who raced at Los Alamitos. We had box seats, and I was at Los Al probably five nights a week as a kid. I was basically raised at the racetrack, and we all loved it.” Clay, who would often accompany his father to the barn area to check on the family’s runners, witnessed at a young age how a good horse can change a man’s life. “In 1973 my dad claimed (purchased via the claiming box) a horse named Wheatland,” said Clay. “Wayne Charlton trained for my dad, and he heard the horse had been gelded. Wayne thought he’d be a great 870 horse (a horse that excelled racing 870 yards). “My dad claimed the horse for $3,500, and he won eight in a row and 10 out of 13,” continued Clay. “He made $89,000 in a year, which in 1973 was a lot of money. We went from living in a simple little house in Hawthorne to the biggest house in El Segundo.” Wheatland, while racing for the Sides family, went from a lowlevel claiming horse to a stakes-winner who made headlines in 1975 when he captured the $25,000 Marathon Handicap at Los Alamitos while carrying a stakes-record 129 pounds. Jockey Jimmy Dreyer was aboard for the win in the 870-yard feature. With such an upbringing, it’s no surprise Clay Sides has never left the horse racing game.

“I started owning horses when I was 21,” said Clay, who breeds and raises racehorses on his 47-acre ranch in Rainbow. “My dad was a great horseman, and I learned everything from him.” Clay is coming off one of his most successful years as an owner. Racing exclusively in Northern California in 2016, Clay won 19 races with his small stable of claiming horses. The majority of the victories were scored at Golden Gate Fields, the premier racetrack in the San Francisco Bay Area. Just as his father introduced him to horse racing, Clay did the same with his children. “All three of my children have their owner’s license, and we actually won six races together last year,” said Clay. Supplying the six-pack of victories for Clay, daughter Carlene and sons Curtis and Jesse was the 4-year-old colt Just Let It Slide, who put together a four-race winning streak at Golden Gate Fields early in 2016 and later added wins on the summer fair circuit at Pleasanton and Sacramento. Clay – who has the “OK” from Jill, his wife of more than 26 years, to tell the story – relayed how he picked out Just Let It Slide as a yearling at a horse sale in Pomona in 2013. “I was walking on the backstretch (barn area) at Fairplex Park, and there was a very attractive lady with this tiny horse (Just Let It Slide),” said Clay. “I looked at her once and thought, ‘wow, she’s really good looking.’ Then I looked at the horse, and I couldn’t stop looking at the horse. I looked at her and said, ‘I’m buying your horse – you’re good looking, and I can’t stop looking at him.’” Clay said it was the way Just Let It Slide was built that won him over. “Being raised around Quarter Horses, I look for that Quarter Horse tilt, where the butt’s higher, nice muscle, lower front end… kind of like a dragster,” said Clay. “He’s really tiny, but he’s got a big heart.” Although he has had good fortune in finding bargains like Just Let It Slide at sales and has enjoyed even more success claiming horses, Clay said nothing beats the thrill of watching a horse that you’ve bred and raised compete. “I like raising a horse at my ranch and seeing it run,” said Clay. “When you raise one that’s a good runner, it’s so exciting. Especially when you’ve picked the mom and dad. It’s a lot of fun.” Winning with clients in the courtroom and horses at the racetrack, that’s what drives Clay Sides. SOURCEBOOK 2017

Michael O’Leary of Steele Insurance Agency, Inc.


ndependent insurance broker Michael O’Leary believes customer service is paramount, and consequently he still makes the old-fashioned “house call” while providing clients with the best coverage at the best price for their auto, home, and life insurance needs. “Most of the time, I will go to the client’s home,” said O’Leary. “I like to go and visit people when it’s best for them. Instead of them coming to me between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., and having to get off work to do it, I can meet them in the evening, no problem. A Saturday? No problem.” O’Leary prides himself on being accessible. “Customer service is completely response time,” said O’Leary. “I don’t know how many people I’ve talked to over the years that hadn’t talked to their agent in awhile, or the last time they called they never got a response. In a sense, sometimes that’s why they are switching (insurance companies or brokers) – it isn’t always the rate, it’s the service.” O’Leary’s status as an independent agent also allows him to shop around to find the best fits for his clients. “Since I don’t work through one company, I can look at all the companies and see what discounts are offered for specific individuals, specific clients,” said O’Leary. “For example, if they’re a teacher, they get a different discount with a different company than others. Things like that.” O’Leary, a 24 year resident of Fallbrook, sums up his job succinctly. “Give the clients a policy that serves them well at the best price and protects them properly, because that’s why they’re buying insurance.” said O’Leary.

Adventures in the

with Stephen and Heidi

by Nathalie Taylor Stephen and Heidi Tillinghast and their GlaStar in the Fallbrook Airpark hangar.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings…

– From “High Flight” by John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

hen Stephen and Heidi Tillinghast go out for a leisurely breakfast, they don’t just hop in their car and drive down the street – no – they board their self-built GlaStar airplane and “slip the surly bonds of Earth.” Their aircraft is not just a novelty, or something that is used infrequently, but is a vital, important vehicle that takes them to breakfast on Catalina Island, a jaunt to a remote area in Baja, California, or a journey to the edge of the Arctic Ocean. The Tillinghasts have seen country that very few have seen. “We enjoy the flying aspect, but we really enjoy going to remote places to do some adventuring,” Heidi explained. Stephen is Instrument Flight Rules rated, which requires additional training beyond what is mandatory to become a private pilot. However, he chooses not to fly in poor weather. “Adventurous, but safe, that is how we live

our life,” explained Heidi. On their first date Stephen took Heidi– and her two children – flying. When her plans for childcare fell through, Heidi thought she would have to cancel, but Stephen solved the problem in his own way. “Bring the kids along,” he told her. “I was so excited,” she said. That was it – they married, and began their life adventure in the sky. The Tillinghasts were both middle school teachers, so they had to be creative in order to own an airplane on their salaries. Their first purchase was a Cessna 182, which they sold when the children got older and their lives became busier. However, it wasn’t long until Stephen and Heidi decided it was time to buy another airplane, but they found they could not stretch their funds that far. The problem was solved by purchasing a GlaStar airplane kit, which did not require the purchase of all

The Tillinghasts flew from Florida to various Caribbean islands.

Flying near mountains, such as Glacier Peak in Washington, is always a thrill for Stephen and Heidi.

the parts at once. They spent seven years building the GlaStar, with the tail section as their first project. Stephen learned how to rivet, and he and Heidi spent a year building the tail in their garage. It took two more years to build the wings. Next came the fuselage, then the engine, which has since been replaced by a Lycoming engine. Stephen possesses a maintenance license to repair his aircraft only, so he takes much of the aircraft apart once a year and gives it a thorough inspection, including the wiring, engines, etc. The couple enjoys flying up the coast to Santa Barbara and Monterey and also make Catalina Island a frequent destination. Mountain flying is a joy for them, and they prefer to land at back country airstrips – accessing areas so remote that the only way in or out is by aircraft or mule pack. Some back country destinations include Moose Creek, Idaho, and Kennicott, Alaska. One of the most memorable trips was a flight to Alaska, which included flying over Canada to the Denali Park area, then north to the Arctic Ocean. “It was quite an adventure planning a trip of that scope,” said Heidi. They experienced 50 take-offs and landings and traveled 9,017 miles.

For trips of that magnitude, there are different considerations. For instance, when flying over Canada, the Canadian government requires that travelers carry two weeks’ worth of food, as well as survival gear. The couple also brought their mountain bikes, which are full-size, but collapsible. “Any time you fly into back country one major consideration is clearing the runway of animals before you land,” Stephen explained. He does a low flyover to scare away any antelope or bears. One bold flight took them over the vast Malaspina Glacier, which is over 60 miles across and is larger than the state of Rhode Island. If they had experienced a problem that required landing, the airplane would have been “torn to pieces,” Stephen related. “There was not one flat place to land.” “It was one of the most amazing experiences of our life,” Heidi added. During that same trip they flew at 10,000 feet near Mt. Denali, formerly Mt. McKinley. There were times when they flew low enough to enjoy watching herds of elk, moose and musk oxen. “We can fly fairly low over the wildlife without disturbing them,” Stephen noted. Another daring series of flights were to the Caribbean. It took them two days to

fly from Fallbrook to Florida with the first stop at Midland, Texas, for the night. The hotels were full so they had to sleep on couches in the airport office. “You have to be really flexible,” said Heidi with a smile. If necessary, Stephen could fly the plane about 700 miles, which translates to five hours in the air. On the Caribbean trip, as well as the others, Stephen set his own flight limit to three-hour legs. “Much more that than and you get fatigued,” he said. Safety is of the utmost concern to both Stephen and Heidi who said that there are specific safety considerations for flying over water. Every person needs to be wearing a life preserver. Personal locator beacons need to be within reach. Onboard is a four-person self-inflatable life raft. Small scuba tanks armed with about 30 breaths of air are carried in case they need extra time to extricate themselves from the aircraft. “On a water route we are always looking for boats,” explained Stephen, “so if there is an engine problem we can land in front of a boat for a quick rescue.” The couple flew to several islands, including the Virgin Islands and Guadeloupe, during the course of their Caribbean trip. The first flight was a daring 368 mile leg from Florida to the Bahamas. The longest and “most exposed” over the sea leg was a nonstop flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Provo, Grand Turks and Caicos. While vacationing on the many islands they visited, Stephen and Heidi enjoyed scuba diving, sailing and exploring on their bicycles. Stephen and Heidi retired in June 2015, and both agree that they are ready for some new adventures. As they live their dream, there is one thing certain – the sky’s the limit!

The Journey of

Peggy Callahan – Hollywood and Beyond!

by Nathalie Taylor James and Peggy Callahan. Courtesy photo


I first met Peggy Cannon-Callahan at the 2008 Fallbrook Film Festival. She is a beautiful, elegant woman with a wonderfully dry sense of humor and impeccable British diction and accent. Peggy was born in England when her mother and father were visiting from Ireland, and returned to Ireland with her parents. She spent the first seven years of her life in Ireland, before the family moved to England. As a young woman, Peggy settled in the Los Angeles area of the United States. In Los Angeles she worked as Golden Globe winner George Hamilton’s personal assistant. The dashing star gave Peggy the title of Vice President – and she earned every letter of that title. Peggy traveled with Hamilton when he was on location for various films. They would sometimes stay in a country three months while filming. Among the countries visited were Australia, Hungary, and France. When Hamilton was filming “Zorro: The Gay Blade,” Peggy and he were in Mexico for about three months. Peggy’s family was proud of her work in Hollywood. When some of her family members saw “Zorro: The Gay Blade,” on an airplane flight, they

all vigorously applauded when Peggy’s name came up in the credits. While in the Philippines for a film festival, Peggy and George Hamilton were guests at Malacañang Palace, the home of President Ferdinand Marcos and his wife, Imelda. “We got up early, and we were always going someplace, usually in a helicopter or on President Marcos’ 254-foot yacht,” she said. “We never knew where we were going, but we had to be ready in the morning,” Peggy explained, “so we didn’t know if we were wearing the right clothes.” However, that didn’t matter because Imelda would give her guests new clothes if they were not dressed appropriately for the occasion. “She was fun,” Peggy said of Imelda. One of Imelda’s “Blue Ladies,” from her inner circle, owned a store, and Imelda told Peggy that she could go shopping there…and…take anything she wanted. “But, I was too bashful,” she said, “so I took a shawl and a picture frame.” Once when George Hamilton and Robin Williams were appearing as guests on the same talk show, Peggy was waiting for Hamilton in the backstage “green room.” Williams happened to be waiting as well.

Williams said to Peggy speaking of the bright green walls, “The color of these walls makes me think I am in an Aer Lingus terminal.” They chatted a bit, and he asked her what she did for a living. Peggy replied with a twinkle in her eye and speaking with her British accent, “I am an Aer Lingus stewardess.” Williams was surprised and very apologetic. Then Peggy smiled and said, “Not really, I work with George Hamilton.” Peggy was thoroughly enjoying her life as personal assistant to Hamilton, but then…James Callahan appeared on the scene. He was an actor who has appeared in over 200 television shows and films, and he is probably most well-known for his portrayal of the grandfather character “Walter Powell” on the television series “Charles in Charge.” In recent years, he had guest starred in “ER,” “The Practice,” “Medium” and “Seventh Heaven.” After James met Peggy, he quickly decided that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. “Quickly” is the operative word – after their third date James proposed. This was the first marriage for James. After Peggy agreed to marry James, she asked George Hamilton if he would “give her away” at the wedding ceremony. “I won’t give you away – James has to negotiate,” replied Hamilton. Peggy and James were married at Treasure Island in Las Vegas. The Callahans enjoyed a wonderful life together. Peggy would accompany James to the set when James guest starred on various television shows. They also traveled in Europe together, visiting Venice, Paris, Florence, London and Dublin. They loved to dine out and always enjoyed being personally served by Wolfgang Puck in his Los Angeles restaurant. SOURCEBOOK 2017

Peggy Callahan presents George Hamilton the “Career Achievement” award at the 2010 Fallbrook Film Festival. Nathalie Taylor photo

“Our life together was wonderful, blissful – we had 13 and a half blissful years,” Peggy said. James discovered Fallbrook when he was acting in a La Jolla play. As he was driving back to Los Angeles, he became thirsty, so he pulled off the freeway when he saw a sign that read: “Fallbrook.” It was the night of the Christmas Parade. “He just fell in love with Fallbrook that night,” Peggy recalled. Peggy and James moved to Fallbrook in 1998 and enjoyed the rural, quiet setting. James developed esophageal cancer and passed away in 2007 at the age of 76. Many friends mentioned how deeply Peggy and James loved each other and what a severe blow it was to Peggy when James passed too soon. According to a Village News article published August 10, 2007, “Acting was not simply a career for James, it was the means of making a difference in the lives of those he met…A regular participant in the Frank Sinatra Golf Tournament, James was more intent on involving the spectators than securing a good score. To the delight of the crowd, he would often invite someone from the gallery to take his next shot. It was one of these admirers who summed up his life so well in a letter she wrote to him after one such event: “People pass through our lives like never-ending streams, and others stop and touch our hearts with a warmth that never fades.’” James’ death not only affected family, but many friends as well. Valerie J. Nelson at the Los Angeles Times, quoted Scott Baio, who was the star of “Charles in Charge”: 1 “As an actor, he was just an absolute pleasure. He wanted what was best for the team and that’s very rare.” Throughout that difficult time, and beyond, George Hamilton has remained a close friend to Peggy. When Hamilton was presented with the “Career Achievement” award at the Fallbrook Film Festival in 2010, Peggy introduced her friend to the audience and presented the award. Hamilton occasionally visits his long-time friend – driving down from Beverly Hills in his stunning Bentley. “I’ve been spoiled,” Peggy said with a twinkle in her eye. Nelson, Valerie J., “James Callahan, 76; actor on ‘Charles in Charge’”, Los Angeles Times, August 8, 2007.

id you know that people from around the world send their Porsches to Fallbrook to be restored? Neither did we – until we visited CPR Classic Restoration and toured its numerous work stations, where classic cars are literally stripped down to their metal frames and then reassembled to exact, original Porsche specifications. CPR has been located in Fallbrook for 25 years and is currently the largest Porsche restoration company in the continental U.S. CPR was originally founded by the Doherty family and is currently owned and managed by Andrea Doherty, daughter and niece of the original founders. “Right now, we have over 90 cars in restoration,” said CPR general manager Michael Heilbronn in a February interview. “We try to put out between two and four a month – two is a goal, four is always better. Primarily, the cars that we do are Porsche 356s years ‘54 to ‘65, and early 911s, ‘65 to ‘73. These are all considered collector’s cars.” When cars arrive at CPR, they often look like anything but “a classic.” Some have been badly neglected (how does somebody neglect at Porsche?) and many have been involved in

accidents. Quite frequently, the car’s history reveals less-than-stellar repair jobs. “Most of the time we spend our time fixing other people’s fixes,” said CPR service manager Dean Reade. CPR has built a world-renowned reputation for restoring Porsches to their original pristine condition. “When a restoration (car) comes in, one of the first things we do is order the COA (certificate of authenticity) from Porsche,” said Reade. “They send us the certificate based on the vehicles VIN number, and the COA tells us when the car was manufactured and what the car’s options were, color of exterior and interior, motor/transmission serial number along with any additional client ordered options. We then take that COA and establish our build sheet or work scope. When the car leaves here, we want it to be as original as possible. That’s where your value is. That’s where the car will command the best money value – originality.” CPR purchases parts in the U.S. from Stoddard, an Ohio company that deals in classic Porsche parts and in Germany from Porsche, along with other venders throughout the U.S.

So what happens if a part is simply not available? “We have a boneyard, and we’ll cut it out of another car and stick it in so it’s still original,” said Reade. “Or, we’ll fabricate it in our metal shop.” CPR has 32 employees that have specific roles – disassembly, strip, straighten, repair, clean, plate, paint, reassemble – but work as a team to return both parts and cars to the point of perfection. “With the skill set that we have, and the people that we have, we could build a complete car,” said Heilbronn. “Literally, we could actually start with sheet metal and could build a complete car body. We have a metal shop that’s pretty phenomenal. “I don’t know of anybody in a production-type environment that does a better car than we do,” continued Heilbronn. “Our painter, Jesus Hernandez, has been a painter of Porsches for more than 20 years and his paint jobs are exceptional. It’s the prep work that goes into them that makes the paint jobs so good, and he’s a stickler.” Outstanding work takes time, so people that take their Porsches to CPR know they’ll be without their vehicles for well over a year. “I usually tell people 18 months and try to adhere to that,” replied Heilbronn when asked about the timeline of a restoration cycle. “We’ve done a car – just to prove we could do it – in nine months.” Some Porsches have celebrated multiple New Year’s Eves at CPR.

rom Fallbrook, unless you drive your own car, or ask a friend to drive, it is difficult to find transportation to local airports – LAX, John Wayne/Orange County, San Diego, Ontario. That is, unless you are aware of a service called Fallbrook Transportation. For 17 years they have served the community; and now have a fleet of three vehicles. On the job 24/7, the company can drive you any time of the day or night. They also transport passengers to cruise terminals – as far away as San Pedro. At the airports, drop-off, as well as pick-up, is at curbside. Fallbrook Transportation is a doorto-door livery service, and are not affiliated with Uber, nor are they a taxi service. Fallbrook Transportation was founded in 2000 by Randy Harsha and Ron Youngmark because they realized how difficult it was for Fallbrook residents to find transportation to the airports. Ron passed on, but Randy is still running the business, along with his wife, Teresa Harsha, and Larry Sinclair, his long-time business partner. Teresa and Larry both drive for the company. Safety is of the utmost importance, and regular maintenance is done on all three vehicles. Random drug screening takes place, and background checks and fingerprinting are mandatory for all employees. “We have a lot of regular customers,” said Teresa. “They trust the company so they recommend us to others.” “Don’t hesitate to call us at the last minute,” Teresa noted, “if we can take you we will, but reservations are highly recommended.”

The restoration process generally takes 18 months and can take longer due to part availability.

“I’ve had cars here over four years, and not necessarily because of the restoration portion, but because of the availability of parts or other factors,” said Heilbronn. Porsche owners can expect a six-figure bill for the restoration. “Your investment in restoration starts out at about $130, 000,” said Heilbronn. “That doesn’t include metal work. I can’t tell you the cost of metal work until all the paint has been removed from the car. Only then can we estimate time and material costs for the metal work.’” So who are the people that don’t flinch when they hear the amount of time and money it will take to restore their Porsche? “It’s all across the board, but it’s somebody that has an extra cash flow or is looking to establish a car collection,” said Heilbronn. “I have clients as young as in their 30s, and I have a gentleman over in Switzerland that’s 92 years old. A lot of people that do restorations, or have restorations done, are people that have extra money or are investors or are simply great enthusiasts of these cars. They can invest it in something and let it sit for six months or a year or five years, and then turn around and resell it for a profit in most cases. Porsche has always been on the upper level.” And keeping classic Porsches at that “upper level” is what drives CPR, the restoration giant hidden in Fallbrook.

planned for the eastern outskirts of Fallbrook. The scope of the project which will replace the previously-planned Gregory Canyon Landfill on that site is unknown. The master specific planning area which totals 1,178 acres includes the Meadowood, Campus Park, Campus Park West, and Horse Creek Ridge developments. The San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved the 416-acre Campus Park project in May 2011 when Passerelle, owned all of that land. Passerelle subsequently sold the residential component to D.R. Horton, who will be building the Horse Creek Ridge development with 521 singlefamily dwelling units and 230 condominium dwelling units. The Campus Park map also includes a town center commercial area totaling 61,200 square feet, 157,000 square feet of professional office space, a community center, an 8.5-acre active sports park, six neighborhood parks, five miles of trails and 197 acres of biological open space. The county supervisors approved the final map on March 22 and secured agreements for Horse Creek Ridge. In January 2012 the board of supervisors approved the 390acre Meadowood development proposed by Pardee Homes. That map includes 397 single-family homes, 447 multi-family dwelling units, 13 acres for an elementary school to 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. In 2014 LAFCO annexed the Meadowood area into the Valley Center Municipal Water District, the CWA, and MWD while detaching that area from the San Luis Rey Municipal Water District and also annexed the land into the North County Fire Protection District and detaching it from the San Diego County Regional Fire Authority. The supervisors’ June 2014 approval of Campus Park West created a map for the 116.5-acre Pappas Investments project which includes 283 multi-family dwelling units, 513,300 square feet of commercial use, 120,000 square feet of limited industrial use and 31 acres of biological open space. LAFCO detached the land not already within the Rainbow Municipal Water District from the

Highway 76.

San Luis Rey district and annexed that acreage into Rainbow, the CWA, and MWD in February 2015. The Palomar College campus comprises 70 acres of the area. The Transportation Impact Fee ordinance program provides funding for construction of transportation facilities needed to support traffic generated by new development and to meet state law requirements. The TIF ordinance designates the area by State Route 76 east of Interstate 15 as a Village Core area, and 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. New GCL Project will replace Gregory Canyon Landfill In November 1994 the county’s voters approved Proposition C,

which created the Solid Waste Landfill zoning category and rezoned the Gregory Canyon area to give it the Solid Waste Facility designation. Gregory Canyon, Ltd., was unable to obtain all of the necessary permits for an actual landfill operation, and GCL eventually became the entity owning approximately 1,700 acres which includes a buffer area as well as the site of what would have been the landfill. The concerns about the proposed landfill included the potential impacts to the San Luis Rey River, and the land also included a Luiseno sacred site on Gregory Mountain. During fall 2016 negotiations took place between GCL and the Pala Band of Mission Indians for the tribe to purchase land including the sacred site. The transaction was finalized in November and recorded with the county November 17. The tribe acquired approximately 700 of the 1,700 acres, which included everything the Luiseno deem

to be of sacred or cultural significance and also included the area where a landfill could be placed on the property. The tribe does not plan to erect any structures on that land. GCL retained the remaining approximately 1,000 acres and will develop plans for housing, commercial development or a combination of uses. Pala or other Luiseno representatives will work with GCL to ensure that no Luiseno artifacts or other cultural remnants are disturbed and the project will include Native American consultation as well as a monitoring process, but the tribe in concept supports the development. Because the Solid Waste Facility zoning classification was created by a voter initiative, the county’s Zoning Ordinance has no specifications about what else is allowed or prohibited on land with such zoning. A parcel in Otay Mesa was subsequently zoned for Solid Waste Facility use by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. GCL will thus likely need to rezone the property for the residential and commercial structures to be built. An action achieved through the voter initiative process can only be changed by a subsequent election, although that election could be placed on the ballot by the board of supervisors rather than by a separate initiative petition. The rezone could designate all of the GCL land as a specific plan area or portions could be designated with residential, commercial, light industrial or other zoning. Because any amendments to zoning would require subsequent voter approval, the likelihood is that the land would be redesignated as a specific plan area. Although any changes to a separate specific plan would require a specific plan amendment, if the zoning is unchanged a specific plan amendment would require only the county process rather than a new public vote. The county’s S88 Specific Plan zoning allows limited uses and allows any use by the specific plan after the adoption of the specific plan. GCL and its consultants would first develop a conceptual project. Although the project could utilize the initiative petition process to be placed on the ballot, county and community review could result in the board of supervisors placing the zoning amendment on the ballot without a petition. The 36

conceptual project would be reviewed by the county’s Department of Planning and Development Services, and PDS would also send the proposed project to the Pala-Pauma Community Sponsor Group for a public hearing and a potential recommendation. Although a project approved by voter initiative does not require an environmental statement for a rezone or a general plan amendment, the project itself will require environmental documentation and a programmatic Environmental Impact Report could be used as the basis for a project-specific Environmental Impact Report or Mitigated Negative Declaration. Because the California Department of Transportation rather than the county of San Diego has jurisdiction over State Route 76, a cumulative traffic finding of significant impact which cannot be mitigated by the project is likely, although findings of overriding considerations can be made in the certification of an EIR. The development would include Traffic Impact Fee payments, and some of that funding is supposed to be used for regional roads including interstate and state highways. Even if a finding of overriding considerations must be made for a significant and unmitigable impact, the project likely would not face opposition from environmentalists or neighbors. If GCL is denied the opportunity to build a project feasible for the developer, the land may be sold to the Pala tribe, in which case, the development would not be subject to county land use policy, and the project could be built anyway. However, the land would not be subject to property tax and the commercial businesses would not be subject to sales tax, this issue makes passage of a project supported by the community likely to pass when the election is held. PDS staff will make a recommendation to the county’s planning commission based on conformance with county policies and community standards. The planning commission has the authority to approve a tentative map, although that may be appealed to the board of supervisors. The board of supervisors must approve any rezone, general plan amendment, or specific plan amendment. If any major use permit is required the planning commission has that approval authority although an appeal to the board of supervisors is allowed.

The likelihood is that the zoning amendment and the tentative map will be approved separately so that any changes to the tentative map including modifications to lots or roads would not be subject to the public vote process. The board of supervisors could place the proposed rezone on the ballot by a simple majority. If three supervisors votes are not obtained, GCL may gather petitions to place the rezone on the ballot, but since that would eliminate the ability of the board of supervisors to place conditions on the project, the initiative would also likely include a tentative map with the developer’s desired specifications. The lack of any significant opposition after the county process will make passage of the rezone likely. GCL would then send the an application for the specific plan including the tentative map and any needed major use permits through the PDS, sponsor group, and planning commission process. The board of supervisors would be required to approve the specific plan along with any specific plan amendments, but with the area already zoned no voter approval would be necessary unless enough signatures are gathered for a referendum - which is theoretical but unlikely. Approval of the project would require letters of service availability from the school district, fire agency, water agency and sewer agency serving the property; although if separate septic systems are used, no sewer service letter of availability is required. The GCL land is within the boundaries of the Bonsall Unified School District, the San Diego County Regional Fire Authority, and the San Luis Rey Municipal Water District. The board of supervisors conditions would likely require that the project be annexed into either the North County Fire Protection District or the Valley Center Fire Protection District, and since the San Luis Rey Municipal Water District is not within the San Diego County Water Authority, the supervisors would also likely require annexation into the SDCWA which would involve annexation into a CWA member agency - either the Rainbow Municipal Water District or the Valley Center Municipal Water District - and into the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. A tentative map is approved as a final map when 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. A final map only creates legal lots; grading and building permits must comply with all elements of the checklist including environmental protection issues. Board of supervisors’ approval is required for the final map and secured agreements.

onsall has the distinction of being home to the top thoroughbred training facility in California – the San Luis Rey Training Center. A beautiful layout located on Camino Del Rey, San Luis Rey affords horses the opportunity to prepare for upcoming races in a spacious and relaxed atmosphere, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the racetracks where they will eventually compete. Peter Miller, who has won multiple training championships at both Del Mar and Santa Anita in Arcadia, keeps the majority of his stable at San Luis Rey. “San Luis Rey is a great facility, and you have a beautiful climate and clean air – no city smog like they have up in Los Angeles and out in Arcadia,” said Miller. “It’s very quiet and provides peaceful surroundings for horses where they get good rest, good exercise and a relaxing atmosphere. I think it’s really important to have the relaxation of San Luis Rey to help them counter-

balance the stress of racing.” Miller’s system of training his horses at San Luis Rey and then shipping them to whichever Southern California track is racing is obviously a winning one. Miller has been the leading trainer at Del Mar four times (2016 fall meet, 2014 summer, 2014 fall, 2012 summer) and the top conditioner at Santa Anita two times (2015 spring, 2016 fall). He has also won a training title at Los Alamitos (2014 spring). Miller is one of approximately 30 trainers who have runners stabled at San Luis Rey, which can house as many 495 horses. “We fluctuate between 350 and 400 horses depending on the time of year,” said Kevin Habell, general manager of San Luis Rey. There are a total of 16 barns in the stable area, including six large adobe brick barns that feature high ceilings, wide aisles and outward facing stalls. There are also round pens and paddocks.

The thoroughbreds get to stretch their legs on a one-mile dirt racetrack that features wide, sweeping turns. A 12-stall starting gate, manned by experienced assistant starters, help the horses practice leaving the gate so they don’t “get left at the gate” come race day. There is also a smaller training track – three-eighths of a mile – as well as an equine swimming pool and a large arena. San Luis Rey is located only 32 miles from Del Mar, and consequently the facility is at its busiest before and during the Del Mar racing seasons in the summer and fall. “It’s definitely beneficial to our racing program to have a training center like San Luis Rey,” said Del Mar racing secretary David Jerkens. “We roughly get about eight horses per day that start at Del Mar, and that’s just the horses that ship from San Luis Rey to Del Mar the day of the race. There are other horses that have been preparing at San Luis Rey that ultimately are stabled at Del Mar.” Horses based at San Luis Rey performed very well at the 2016 summer meeting at Del Mar, racking up 38 victories at the seaside oval. Several of those wins were recorded by 2-year-old runners just beginning their racing careers. Jerkins noted the calm surroundings at San Luis Rey make it an ideal place for trainers to groom their young horses. “If you’re preparing 2-year-olds to race at Del Mar, this is where you’d want to be,” said Jerkens. San Luis Rey’s reputation often prompts horsemen to send horses to the facility to train for big races. In 2016, the speedy Danzing Candy trained for the Kentucky Derby at San Luis Rey. Danzing Candy led through the first seven furlongs (seven-eighths of a mile) of the 1 1/4-mile Kentucky Derby but grew tired after setting a wicked pace and checked in 15th in “The Run For The Roses.” San Luis Rey will always boast of being the home of the champion mare Azeri, the 2002 Horse of the Year, who took her lessons from trainer Laura de Seroux while based at the Bonsall facility.

Fallbrook Land Conservancy 46

by Jennifer Anderson


he first busload of fifth-graders arrives at 8:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning at the north entrance to Los Jilgueros, a 46-acre nature preserve nestled between a private development on the east, and busy South Mission Road on the west. Jean Dooley, a longtime volunteer, is there to greet the students; just as she has nearly every year since 2004, when the environmental education program in Fallbrook elementary schools began. It is a two-year program, introduced in the fourth grades when volunteers visit classrooms in the district’s five elementary schools to teach the benefits of trees and shrubs, the importance of conserving water by planting native and drought-tolerant plants and the how-tos of planting seedlings in one-gallon pots. The lessons are revisited the following year, when the same students, now fifth-graders, are bussed to a nature preserve owned and managed by the Fallbrook Land Conservancy, where they learn to plant those same seedlings in the ground. “Remember those plants?” Dooley asks the students. “Now they’re bigger and stronger and ready to go. Are you ready to plant?” They respond with a chorus of eager faces and disembark, following Dooley in single file down a narrow dirt path off Peppertree Lane to the north end of the preserve. They gather around Jackie Heyneman, chairman of the FLC’s Save Our Forest committee. The group has a long history in Fallbrook’s community, evolving from the original “Save the Oaks” grass roots organization led by Heyneman in 1972 to protect native oak trees marked for destruction on Live Oak Park Road. In 1993, the group was renamed Save Our Forest and joined forces with the FLC as an all-volunteer organization. Since then, SOF has planted and maintained thousands of trees in Fallbrook’s downtown area, on FLC preserves and throughout the community, as well as guided landscaping efforts in the Pico Corridor and along Mission Road. Heyneman’s enthusiasm for native plants is infectious, as she urges the students to touch the leaves of a white or black sage, and then inhale its earthy aroma. She points out potted buckwheat, “part of the chaparral family that covers the hillsides in California,” she explains. Yarrow and monkey flower add to the mix of plants to help create “an old-fashioned native plant garden,” she says. A half-dozen volunteers help guide the students through the planting process. They include first-time volunteer Abe Gonzales, 88; Gary Marske, a self-described “snowbird” who is lending a hand for the second consecutive year while wintering in Fallbrook; Anne Richter, who is a 14-year SOF volunteer and Kelly Bednarski, an Angel Society board member and Fallbrook High School graduate. Many of the volunteers in the environmental education program are also members of another FLC committee, the Native

preserve’s two-mile trail meanders through wetlands and lush groves of mature oaks, sycamores and other native trees and brush. The pathways, lined with benches, are popular with runners, hikers and dog-walkers. Frequent sightings of several local bird species also make Los Jilgueros a popular destination for birders and nature-lovers. Seven FLC preserves have been listed as birding “hotspots” in San Diego County on eBird, an online database of bird observations by scientists, researchers and amateur naturalists. A total of 137 species have been recorded at Los Jilgueros. The tranquil beauty of Los Jilgueros, which is Spanish for finches, is a tribute to the vision of the FLC’s founders, a handful of friends from diverse professional backgrounds – Vince Ross and Wallace Tucker among them – who shared a common goal: to preserve the

rural character and natural beauty of community through the permanent protection of open space. They formed the Fallbrook Land Conservancy, incorporating in April 1988. Two years later, the group acquired Los Jilgueros, its first property, through a private donation. In 1993, an addition to the property was acquired when it was purchased through a grant from the California Transportation Commission Environmental Enhancement and Mitigation Program. The FLC was, in fact, the first land trust in California to receive such a grant. On Earth Day in 1990, more than 1,000 people visited LJP to see Fallbrook’s first nature preserve. Less than a year later, 700 volunteers planted 400 native California oaks and other trees as part of its restoration. Today, with an estimated 14,000 visitors annually, LJP remains one of the FLC’s most popular preserves. Also in 1990, the Palomares House and 1.5 acres of surrounding land was donated to the FLC by Otis and Linda Heald, Al and Flo Pinamonti and Vince and Joy Ross. Built in 1888, the Palomares House is one of the oldest structures in Fallbrook and currently houses the FLC’s administrative offices as well as a community meeting room. In the fall of 1990, the newly formed nonprofit held its first fundraiser, Stagecoach Sunday, at the Palomares House. The event was such a success it’s been held there every fall since, and always on a Sunday, with the exception of one Stagecoach Saturday. This year, Stagecoach Sunday will celebrate its 27th anniversary Oct. 1. Throughout the 90s, the FLC acquired a total of six properties and one conservation easement. A conservation easement is a legal agreement between a landowner and the FLC that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values. Then, in 2000, the FLC was once again on the leading edge when it acquired the first phase of the 307-acre

Monserate Mountain Preserve through the creation of a conservation bank formed by agreement with the Heights of Pala Mesa Owners. In fact, it was the first conservation bank to be established in the unincorporated area of northern San Diego County. A conservation bank is an innovative way for landowners to realize a profit from a large tract of land with high habitat value without developing it. When developers purchase conservation bank “credits” in lieu of setting aside land on their projects, the proceeds from the credit sales provide a return on the investment of the owners who created the bank, and fund an endowment for maintenance of the habitat. Five miles of public trails traverse Monserate Mountain Preserve, which is located just east of Interstate 15, at Horse Creek Ridge and Stewart Canyon roads. A steep 1.5 mile switchback to the summit rewards hikers with panoramic views of the Peninsular Range to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The preserve is also the site of the Fallbrook Firefighters annual 9-11 Memorial Hill Climb. For more information, visit Over the years, community support has been vital to the FLC’s success, with hundreds of volunteers the key to various outreach programs. Between individual and corporate donations, combined with funds raised at its annual Stagecoach Sunday event, the FLC generates some $100,000 annually, which helps to cover basic operating expenses. Today, more than 3,100 acres of open space in San Diego County is now permanently protected by the FLC. The total includes 2,164 acres in North County San Diego that is owned and managed by the conservancy. This “fee title” acreage includes the Palomares House and Park, 11 nature preserves, and six additional properties that protect valuable habitat. In addition, the FLC holds 955.93 acres of

conservation easements, which are legal agreements between a landowner and the FLC that permanently limits uses of the land in order to protect its conservation values. In 2014, the FLC was certified to hold and manage mitigation properties in San Diego and Riverside counties by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. With endowments in place, these properties help the FLC generate additional income. Margarita Peak is the FLC’s largest preserve at 1,206 acres. With an elevation of 3,193 feet, it also has the highest peak in San Diego County, west of the I-15. It was acquired in 2007 through a partnership with Camp Pendleton, the California Wildlife Conservation Board and the Trust for Public Land and remains closed to

the public for habitat protection. In 2015, Renee Ingold, a former member of the FLC’s board of directors, donated funds in memory of her parents, Robert and Arlyne Ingold, for an endowment for Margarita Peak Preserve to “provide support for its preservation and maintenance in perpetuity.” “Perpetuity” is a word Mike Peters mentions often as he discusses the future of the Fallbrook Land Conservancy. For the past 20 years, he has been employed as the FLC’s preserve manager, and in 2009 he was appointed executive director. In this dual role, Peters is responsible for a laundry list of duties that includes reporting to the organization’s board of directors and technical advisory board; managing the office; monitoring the preserves;

overseeing building projects and land acquisitions; applying for grant funds and so much more. Currently, he is assisted by a staff of three: Daniel Lombera, assistant preserve manager; Debbie Crawford, accountant; and Michele Redmon, administrative assistant. Peters is perhaps the organization’s greatest resource, but his time at the FLC is limited. He plans to retire in two years and, until then, will be working closely with the FLC’s board of directors to apply for “accreditation,” a system of standards and practices created by the Land Trust Alliance, a national organization of land trusts. “Planning for the future of our conservancy is not an easy task and our staff and directors realize this,” said Peters, who believes the accreditation process will help “guide future staff and board members through the years ahead. “It’s our responsibility to set policies that our future staff and board can follow and practice as good stewards of open space. Having procedures and policies in place, and documents to back up everything we have accomplished in land protection through the years, is critical to our land trust going forward into perpetuity,” Peters said. The FLC’s 12-member board of directors met in January with Tom McCampbell, a facilitator with the LTA who will guide the FLC board through the application process, which takes a minimum of two years. Will Shakespeare, Board Chairman, is confident the organization will achieve the “level of accreditation” by June 2018. It is an honor that has been awarded to only 384 out of 1,700 registered land trusts to date, according to McCampbell. Next year, the FLC is also looking forward to celebrating its 30th anniversary. “For 30 years the FLC has been protecting and conserving open space in San Diego North County,” Peters said. “As I see it, the conservancy’s journey has only just begun.” It is a journey the FLC will not take alone, added co-founder Tucker, who remains active on the board as chairman of the FLC’s Acquisitions and Stewardship Committee. “Through the years we have benefited greatly from partnerships with the community, as well as with governmental and non-governmental organizations,” he noted. “These partnerships link us with each other – and with nature. They help to make the world become a healthier and better place for every living thing now and in the future.” For more information, visit

The Santa Margarita

Conjunctive Use Project, Dam Land Sale Bringing Decades-Old Situation to Closure

by Joe Naiman

The main condition the FPUD Board had was that whatever the final outcome – that the property would remain accessible to the public.

– FPUD Board Director Don McDougal


The Fallbrook Public Utility District was founded in 1922. A state engineer looking for potential reservoir sites identified one in Fallbrook in 1924, just after the district formed, and after World War II the FPUD board decided to pursue building a dam on the Santa Margarita River. During World War II the former O’Neill Ranch became Marine Corps Base Camp

Pendleton, and by the time a water rights settlement had been reached at higher government levels, environmental and funding issues prevented the dam from being built. The plans for the dam have been replaced with the Santa Margarita Conjunctive Use Project, and a finalization of a water rights settlement is expected this year as are the steps to begin construction

on the Conjunctive Use Project. Camp Pendleton officials were concerned that the dam would cut off their water supply, and a joint agreement was reached in 1949. But elsewhere in the federal government the agreement was not acceptable. After several rounds of court cases, a memorandum of understanding was signed in 1968 for a two-dam project where Fallbrook would obtain water supply and Camp Pendleton would receive water supply and flood control.

The following year Congress passed the National Environmental Protection Act, and by the time the documentation for the proposed dam was finished, a reorganization of federal agencies handling water led to an unfunded office from which no documents left. The passage of the Endangered Species Act forced an update of the original environmental study, which was finally completed in 1983. The legislation to get the project authorized was Pete Wilson’s first bill as a United States Senator and Ron Packard’s first bill as a U.S. Congressman. The bill passed the Senate but died in the House Environmental Committee. The bill was re-introduced in 1985, but the Reagan administration wanted the project to be paid out of the Armed Services budget and Rep. Ron Dellums demanded another study of the water supply. The study, completed in 1988, said that Camp Pendleton should connect to the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. By that time a development in Rancho California was seeking a failsafe way of disposing of livestream discharge of tertiary effluent. That led to the 1990 approval of the Four-Party Agreement with FPUD, Camp Pendleton, the Rancho California Water District and the Eastern

Municipal Water District. The agreement would provide 6,000 acre-feet of local water. FPUD and Camp Pendleton, along with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, began pursuing the Santa Margarita Conjunctive Use Project. The Conjunctive Use Project would enhance groundwater recharge and recovery capacity within the lower Santa Margarita River basin and develop a program which would increase available water supplies for Camp Pendleton and FPUD.  Facilities within the lower basin would be constructed to capture additional surface runoff, which currently flows to the Pacific Ocean, during high stream flow periods. The surface water would be recharged through existing groundwater ponds and stored in groundwater basins during wet years while being “banked” for water rights statistics. The water would be used to augment supplies during dry years, which would reduce the reliance on imported water provided from San Diego County Water Authority sources.  The Conjunctive Use Project would include improvements to the diversion works, increased capacity to the headgate and the O’Neill Ditch, improvements to seven existing recharge ponds, installation of new groundwater production wells and gallery wells, water treatment at either an existing or an expanded or new water treatment

The Conjunctive Use Project would enhance groundwater recharge and recovery capacity within the lower Santa Margarita River basin and develop a program which would increase available water supplies for Camp Pendleton and FPUD.

plant, and a bidirectional pipeline which could deliver water to FPUD while also providing the Marine Corps base with an off-base water supply should conditions warrant. The amount of water obtained will depend on weather conditions. FPUD will not receive any water in the event of an extreme drought. The minimum water delivery to FPUD will be 580 acre-feet for a very dry hydrological year, 1,300 acre-feet for a below-normal year, 3,100 acre-feet for a normal year (based on the average over the past 50 years), 5,120 acre-feet for an above-normal year and 6,320 acre-feet for a very wet year. A potential additional allocation of 400 acre-feet is possible, and FPUD also has the first right of refusal for excess water sold rather than used by Camp Pendleton which could provide up to 1,500 additional acre-feet annually for FPUD while also providing Camp Pendleton with revenue for operations and maintenance. FPUD was the lead agency for the environmental documentation which combined an Environmental Impact Report to meet California Environmental Quality Act standards with an Environmental Impact Statement to satisfy National

Environmental Protection Act requirements. The draft EIR/EIS was released for public review in May 2014 and received two comments: a letter of support from the Fallbrook Land Conservancy which noted the project’s environmental benefits and a letter of concern from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA addressed insufficient information on potential impacts to water resources, habitat, and special status species while also requesting additional mitigation measures to reduce impacts to water quality, air quality, and biological resources and calling for the inclusion of a facility operating plan.  The Marine Corps worked with the National Oceanographic and Atmosphere Administration fisheries and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on modifications to the draft document.  FPUD’s board approved the EIR/EIS, along with a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, Sept. 26. The Camp Pendleton infrastructure will include piping to deliver the water to the boundary of the Naval Weapons Station and Fallbrook behind the FPUD solar facility site on Alturas Road.  Construction of the facilities from the NWS boundary is FPUD’s responsibility. The water will be treated

at the Alturas Road plant and delivered into FPUD’s distribution system. In October 2014 FPUD’s board awarded a design contact to Infrastructure Engineering Corporation. The final design for the FPUD portion has been completed. The FPUD board authorized an application for a State Revolving Fund loan from the State Water Resources Control Board on Jan. 23 to construct the Santa Margarita Conjunctive Use Project. The loan would be for $45,000,000 and would be repaid over 20 years at an interest rate of approximately 1.6 percent. The Camp Pendleton cost estimate is $54 million. The Department of the Navy has awarded a contract for construction of the Camp Pendleton portion, although the settlement agreement must be finalized before construction can begin. The settlement agreement is expected to be finalized in spring 2017, and water rights work also includes finalizing changes to water rights permits with the State Water Resources Control Board, which is also expected to occur this spring. FPUD’s summer 2017 planned activities include pre-qualifying contractors and issuing a request for proposals. The FPUD contract award is scheduled for late 2017, although the actual construction will likely begin in early 2018. The work will take approximately two years to complete. 62

FPUD had acquired 1,384 acres along the Santa Margarita River for the planned dam. In September 2015 the FPUD board Gina Thomson rides Boozer along the Santa Margarita River Shane Gibson photo approved the sale Trail in Fallbrook. of that land to Western Rivers Conservancy for $9,975,000 while allocating the revenue for funding to construct the Conjunctive Use Project facilities.  The expectation is that the land will be placed into a permanent conservation easement, and the purchase and sale agreement stipulated that a recreational trails easement as well as a long-term stewardship agreement will be finalized before the close of escrow.  The process would involve The Wildlands Conservancy undertaking the role as the long-term steward of the entire land with an equestrian easement being granted to the Fallbrook Trails Council. Concurrence in writing by FPUD, Western Rivers Conservancy, The Wildlands Conservancy and the Fallbrook Trails Council will be necessary for the agreement to be finalized.  The purchase and sale agreement stipulated an escrow closing date of December 31, 2016, unless Western Rivers Conservancy chose to increase the deposit and extend escrow to June 30, 2017.

Fallbrook Solar Electric Offering Quality Service and a Smart Investment “Each solar system should deliver the expected solar energy, be reliable and make sense as an investment.” President of Fallbrook Solar Electric, Ben Holtz.


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 utility bills. That’s where Fallbrook Solar Electric can transform private and business properties. Fallbrook Solar Electric president Ben Holtz has lived in the greater Fallbrook area for 32 years. An expert in engineering and installations, Holtz also has a background in financial evaluations. Holtz employs all of that knowledge to make Fallbrook Solar Electric a great local resource and a standout among solar companies. “It became clear that clean energy was an excellent investment,” said Holtz. “This led me to start Fallbrook Solar Electric.” 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 more than 500 panels. Fallbrook Solar Electric is different because of Holtz’s leadership approach towards design, engineering, and above all, customer service. Holtz believes each solar system should deliver the expected solar energy, be reliable and make sense as an investment. “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. “Through the collaborative effort of a highly-trained staff, we will provide you with the best solar investment possible.” Find your cost-saving solution by calling Fallbrook Solar Electric and asking for a personal project review with Holtz. He’ll be happy to help.

Camp Pendleton dedicated on sept. 25,

he full name of the military base next door to Fallbrook is Camp Joseph H. Pendleton, named after the Major General who was first stationed in San Diego in 1914 as head of the 4th Marine Regiment. A proponent of establishing the Marine Corps’ Advance Base Force on the West Coast, Gen. Pendleton settled in Coronado after his retirement in 1924 and died in 1942. In the 1930s, Marine officers in search of a large training area on the West Coast found Santa Margarita Ranch just north of Oceanside (aka Rancho Santa Margarita and Las Flores) and 9,000 acres of the ranch were bought by the U.S. government in May 1941 for the Naval Ammunition Depot at Fallbrook. After the attack on Pearl Harbor that December, a home was needed for the “Marine Amphibious Force in the Pacific” that was a key factor in fighting World War II. So, the Navy bought 120,000 more acres of the Santa Margarita Ranch in March 1942. To establish the training base, the U.S. government, using wartime powers, had the federal court condemn the property so that the Marines could immediately take control of the land in July 1942. They added more land for the Marines and the Department of the Interior to the original purchase for a total of 124,637 acres, or two-thirds of the Santa Margarita Ranch at a cost of $4.2 million. That September, while the base was still under construction, the 9th Marine Regiment with the 1st Battalion, 12th Marines, marched for four days from Camp Elliott in San Diego, which is now known as Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, to its new home, arriving Sept. 4. It took a record 16 months, for the base to be built, but it was officially dedicated on Sept. 25, 1942 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself. His visit on board the base lasted less than an hour and, as it was wartime, was not publicized. Seventy-five years later, the Marines are celebrating the anniversary of Camp Pendleton’s creation. As part of the celebrations, the docents of Rancho Santa Margarita and Las Flores will lead tours of the buildings that were on the ranch before the base was built.

Railroad in Fallbrook Article and Photos Courtesy of Fallbrook Historical Society


n the early days several developers and other prominent citizens of San Diego wanted to increase the flow of goods and passengers through the port of San Diego. To do this, they decided the port would have to be connected to the national railroad system. The steep mountains east of San Diego made it too difficult to connect the port to the Southern Pacific Railroad, which ran through the eastern part of the Imperial Valley. Frank Kimball, one of the early railroad developers in San Diego, traveled east to meet with other railroad entrepreneurs to create interest in San Diego as a railroad terminus. After making offers of land and other inducements, he reached an agreement with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad Company July 10, 1880. Thus, the California Southern Railroad Company was formed. California Southern would build a rail route northward from National City to the Santa Margarita River north of Oceanside; up the Santa Margarita River to Temecula and northward to Lake Elsinore. It then turned east up Railroad Canyon to Perris and northward to Riverside and Colton. From San Bernadino, the route continued over the Cajon Pass through Victorville and on to Barstow, where it joined the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad. That line was owned jointly by the Santa Fe, St. Louis and San Francisco railroad companies. Historians tend to blame the unsuccessful route location of the California Southern Railroad on errors made by eastern engineers, who, unfamiliar with California rivers, set the grade stakes in Temecula Canyon just a few feet above the river bed. Old timers of the area showed them higher water marks on the side of the canyon walls. The engineers built the line as originally surveyed though as they were convinced the dry river never carried that volume of water. A proposed alternate route up the San Luis Rey River to Rancho Monserate, turning northward and passing over Rainbow Pass, was surveyed, but those in charge believed that the least expensive route was the best route so the railroad was constructed up the Santa Margarita River and through Temecula Canyon. The error in choosing the Santa Margarita River route over the San Luis Rey was a costly error on someone’s part. Construction of the railroad advanced at a rapid pace up the coast from National City during 1881, opening for operation to Fallbrook Jan. 2, 1882, then from Fallbrook to Temecula March 22, 1882. The pace slowed as track workers reached the narrow, near vertical rocky walls of Temecula Canyon. Support and supply trains were running on a regular basis, bringing up rails, ties, blasting powder, laborers, telegraph poles and food for the workers. Construction camps had to be established SOURCEBOOK 2017

along the route to house the workers. The W.B. Hayden homestead, located at what is now the intersection of De Luz and Sandia Creek roads, was purchased by the railroad. The area was first utilized as a construction camp, and later the Fallbrook station was built there. Railroad stations were established in the Santa Margarita River Canyon at De Luz, Fallbrook and Ranchita which is Willow Glen. Vital Reche had established the Fallbrook Post Office in Live Oak Canyon before the construction of the railroad. To publicize the railroad, the available land of the area and to have a rather spectacular event to remember, the fraternal order of Odd Fellows, which was holding its 63rd anniversary celebration in April 1882, ran an excursion train from San Diego to Temecula just one

month after the completion of the line. Everything went smoothly until February 1884 when heavy rains came, and the water level in Temecula Canyon rose, washing out 30 miles of track along the Santa Margarita River and closing the railroad for nine months. The losses forced California Southern Railroad into bankruptcy. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad Company was determined not to let its rival Southern Pacific gain control of the California Southern line, so in November 1884 Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe offered purchased the bankrupt company. With new capital, the reconstruction of the line through Temecula Canyon resumed. Construction of the rail line up over Cajon Pass continued, connecting with the Atlantic and Pacific line at Barstow. The first passenger train departed from San Diego Nov. 18, 1885. The port of San Diego had been successfully connected to the U.S. railway network.

Competition between the railroads in Southern California began in earnest in 1885, when the Santa Fe route connected with San Diego via its affiliated California Southern Railroad. The area’s freedom from transportation monopolies was assured. Prices dropped. A ticket west from the Mississippi River, which had cost $125, was reduced to $25 or less by 1887. To avoid the continuing problems with the Santa Margarita River in Temecula Canyon, the Santa Fe Railroad created the San Bernadino and San Diego Railway. The objective was to build the “surf line” south from Santa Ana to El Toro and San Juan Capistrano, then along the coast through San Clemente. It would connect with the California Southern line north of Oceanside. This line was complete Aug. 12, 1888, and over the years has become the principal route north out of San Diego. The Temecula Canyon segment was kept in operation but was no longer considered the “main line.” The winter rains of 1891

severely damaged the rail line in Temecula Canyon and the cost of reconstructing the line was too high. The rail line between Temecula and Fallbrook Station was abandoned in January 1892. A portion of the old California Southern Railway line lying between Fallbrook Station and the Los Angeles junction (later known as Fallbrook junction) on the new surf line north of Oceanside continued to serve the Fallbrook area. Known as the Fallbrook Branch, this line left the surf line north of Oceanside and turned east into the route of the Santa Margarita River. The rail bed curved sharply along the narrow bench between the river and the high chalky cliffs. A little farther along it entered the Santa Margarita Valley and passed the mouth of De Luz Creek where the De Luz station was located. At this point the canyon narrowed considerably. Between De Luz and Fallbrook stations, the railroad crossed the Santa Margarita River four times by means of “floating bridges which lay flush with the river on a 4 to 5 percent grade. Upon crossing the river, the grade out of the riverbed was about the same. The bridges on the horseshoe curve were from 50 to 100 feet in length, and were so close together that the track took on a roller coaster aspect. Extreme skill was required in both the uses of the throttle and the brakes in getting trains over the track. Too heavy a brake application would result in the train stalling in the river, and too light an application might result in derailment. Both engine and cars rocked from side to side in an alarming manner as the train passed over the bridges. During the winter months of high water in the river, it was the custom to stop the train before crossing any bridge. The brakeman would don hip boots; take a long pole and cross ahead of the train, to check if bridges could still float. If all was well the train would proceed to follow him across the river. Heavy rains Jan. 22 through Jan. 28, 1916, once again caused floodwaters to pour through Temecula Canyon. The Fallbrook Branch Line was closed Jan. 22. On Jan. 28, the freight house and five cars at the Fallbrook Station were washed away. The Santa Margarita riverbed was scoured out down to bedrock, some 20 to 25 feet below its former level. Much of the exposed bedrock revealed pitting by ancient Indian metates, indicative of the canyon being a favorite camp site where the local Indians had harvested acorns for untold years. About 9 miles of railroad track had been lost downstream from the Fallbrook station. Much of the Santa Fe’s property was swept away by the floodwaters. Engineer W.R. Angelo’s house, though surrounded by floodwaters, remained, as did the engine watchman’s house, water tank, turntable, the engine and a few cars which had been spotted on higher ground.

We had been working with Rudy & Sandy for at least two years looking for our ‘dream house’ in Fallbrook. Rudy & Sandy happened to hear about our home thru one of their colleagues at another office and called us to view our home. The house wasn’t quite what we were looking for but it has turned out to be so much more than we had ever hoped. We moved last November 1st and have not regretted a single day. The ‘Gallegos Team’ did an outstanding job for us but their follow-thru, attention to detail and their expertise were invaluable to us since we were long-time Los Angeles residents and needed lots help with the Fallbrook area. Team Gallegos did an outstanding job for us and I would highly recommend them to any new/existing buyers in the areas they service. – C. Doolin

My husband and I lived in orange County for over 30 years. Rudy and Sandy worked with us for two years, from the time we thought we might like to move to Fallbrook to the time we were determined to move to Fallbrook. The Gallegos team frequently updated us with current properties for sale. When it was time to get serious and start looking at homes, they had a good understanding of what we were looking for. They kept on top of our progress while selling our property and answered our millions of questions. It was a great experience. We would highly recommend Rudy and his team. – L. Thornton

Salvaging the old train engine.

Train wreckage in Santa Margarita riverbed, January 1916.

Beginning in 1915, through an arrangement with the O’Neill and Flood families, owners of the Rancho Santa Margarita, a new route into downtown Fallbrook was established and began construction. Secondhand 85-pound rails from the main line were being laid from the Fallbrook junction to the town of Fallbrook. The old roadbed was used between Fallbrook junction and the Ranch House; beyond the Ranch House a new line was constructed up over the hill. The grade on this new construction was very steep, averaging 132 feet to the mile. With the new line under construction, the Santa Fe Railroad Company turned its attention to salvaging the railroad equipment still in the Santa Margarita canyon. Santa Fe placed a value of $25,000 on what was left after the flood. Santa Fe Superintendent Hitchcock stopped off one morning at Oceanside for a consultation with the agent and branch line train crew. He told them that the company had advertised bids for the salvage of the stranded equipment. The bids specified that the salvager was to deliver the engine cars, turntable and all available scrap to a connection with the new line within 90 days from the time of the awarding of the contract. Equipment to be moved included an 80-ton 2-8-0 locomotive No. 721, a 36-ton turntable, four refrigerator cars, one passenger coach, one baggage-passenger combination car, one tank car, one box car and an assortment of scrap material. Some lay on their sides along the riverbank. Total weight of the equipment, including loads, was about 400 tons. The distance to be moved to a connection with the new line in the town of Fallbrook was 8,400 feet, with a vertical rise of 463 feet up a maximum grade of 14 percent with a 50-degree maximum of curvature. Hitchcock said he had received a bid of $40,000 from a responsible and reliable firm from Los Angeles, which proposed to construct a temporary line from Fallbrook Station to a connection with the new track. He had also received a low bid of $6,000 from a house-mover in Pasadena, though he was in some doubt about the house-mover’s ability to do the job. As the house-mover however, had made good on several other company jobs on the Arizona Division, he decided to give the house-movers, or “the Boys,” he called them, the job. Salvage work was done by W.O. Basore, W.L. Basore, R.L. Fisher, W.L. Smith and Norman Switzer. J.P. O’Shea was Santa Fe inspector for the job. The salvage work was performed by five men and four horses, using two capstans and about 3,000 feet of one-half inch cable, several one-inch chains and a lot of “cussing.” The capstans had 10-inch spools with a sweep of 108 inches and were each operated by two horses. At several places along the route the clearance was

so close that it was necessary to dig into the hillside to allow room to operate the capstans. Through the work, every precaution was employed to safeguard the equipment on the unusual grades. Ties were placed behind each pair of trucks, and 12x12 chocks were carried behind each pair of drive wheels. Ties and chocks were wired to the equipment in such a manner that they dragged along the top of the rail as the equipment moved forward. In the event of a broken cable or chain, the wheels would settle against the timbers to avoid any possible chance of a runaway. Each piece of the equipment was chained to the track when not in motion. Everything in the canyon that was salvageable was brought out. All available scrap was loaded in the box and refrigerator cars, the turntable loaded on a flat car and, to reduce weight, the tender was cut away from the engine, which was last to be brought out. A short distance from the starting point in the bottom of the canyon the equipment was switched over to a country road, but as the movers neared the top of the hill, they were forced to leave the road and build their own right of way. Fifty-pound rails spiked to ties were laid ahead of the equipment, torn up behind and relayed ahead as the work progressed. Two capstans, four horses and six single-sheave blocks pulled the 80-ton locomotive up the 14 percent grade. On light grades, two cars were moved by the same method, at an average speed of 6 feet per minute. No “engine trouble” developed, and on grades under 10 percent, two horses easily moved loads up to 50 tons. The engine was stripped to a 15-foot rigid wheelbase and was pulled around 50-degree curves without derailing. A maximum super-elevation of 4 inches was used on curves, and the inner rails were kept well-greased with crude oil, something necessary to keep the engine on the track. A 4-inch super elevation was the maximum that could be used without overturning the rails. Work began March 14, 1917, and all the equipment was cut in on the new line in Fallbrook, Sunday, June 10, 1917, well within the contract time. Hitchcock was highly pleased. “The Boys” got their $6,000 and were rich. Fallbrook relied heavily on the new line that led from the coast through Rancho Santa Margarita for transporting produce. One of the largest users was the Fallbrook Citrus Association, but the avocado industry, grain, cattle, oil, honey, tomatoes – all benefitted. In the years of World War II, the government shipped ammunition from Fallbrook Naval Weapons Station. The daily train would come into town to the station on East Alvarado, then turn around just east, near the area of Santa Margarita Road, to head back to the coast.

Kim Carlson and Ken Follis Real Estate Group Fallbrook Realtors pride themselves on giving home buyers and sellers personal attention in the community they love to call home


hether the subject is the real estate business or their hometown of Fallbrook, it’s a truly personal matter for Realtors Kim Carlson and Ken Follis. The Windermere Homes & Estates-Kim Carlson & Ken Follis Real Estate Group duo are fans of Fallbrook’s small town charm and country lifestyle which make it such a great destination community for old-timers and newcomers alike, according to Carlson and Follis. “Fallbrook is a place of the heart for me,” said Carlson, who lived in Orange County and Oceanside before moving to Fallbrook 19 years ago. “Every time I was here for open houses or just visiting and see the horse ranches and avocado groves and the downtown village, I just knew that it was the place I wanted to live.” “And I know that same sense of place where someone can run into other people they know at the supermarket or the local restaurant or even the hardware store,” she continued, “is part of what continues to make Fallbrook such an appealing real estate market today.” Follis, who has lived in Fallbrook since 1996, calls it his “forever home.” “There is a true sense of community here,” he said. “And we are always thrilled when prospective buyers in other counties, states and even other countries respond to our marketing and advertising, and then ask about Fallbrook, saying that ‘it seems to be a wonderful place to call home.’’ Strategic marketing has proven effective for Carlson and Follis, two longtime Realtors (Carlson became a real estate agent in 1987 and Follis in 1980) who formed a partnership in 2013. The real estate group, which includes a full-time staff of of four in addition to Carlson and Follis, sends out thousands of postcards each month to Fallbrook,

Bonsall, Carlsbad, Oceanside and surrounding areas. They also promote their real estate services for buyers and sellers alike through Zillow, Trulia, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in addition to using videos, drone photography, print media, and letter campaigns. And they provide a moving truck for clients and charitable organizations to use for free. Carlson’s and Follis’ continued commitment to top-notch service garnered them the 2016 Platinum Service Award of Excellence by the San Diego Association of Realtors, said Carlson, adding that it was “a very huge honor.” The group, which provides real estate services in other parts of Southern California including Temecula, Murrieta, Orange County, San Diego County and North San Diego County, was also Windermere’s number one team for 2016. “And I am proudest of the fact that we have more 5 star testimonials from past

clients than anyone locally,” said Follis. With the expansion of Hwy. 76 and other transportation improvements, Follis is bullish about the continued desirability of custom homes in Fallbrook for retired and soon-to-retired executives, but he believes that the “friendly village” atmosphere will still prevail. Carlson too is seeing an increase in move-up buyers wishing to relocate to Fallbrook as well as first-time buyers choosing to purchase their first homes in the community. “I do enjoy working with older move up-buyers, but I have to say that the firsttime buyers are my favorite clients,” she said. “They are usually young and not familiar with the up-and-down experience that can happen when buying a home. I become like a den mother to them. And when they call me about how thrilled they are to have their own home for the first time, I absolutely love it!”

Rick and Jennifer Buffington produce wines that would have made Roman gladiators mellower, Michelangelo happier and Sinatra want to croon a late-night ballad. by Sandra Shrader

The Buffingtons produced wine from vines on the property at their the more satisfyFallbrook home before joining Temecula’s wine industry and ing phrase would opening Cougar Vineyard & Winery for wine tasting in 2006. Shane Gibson photos be in “vino Italiano veritas.” Unique among Temecula Wine Country’s colony of wineries, the Buffingtons currently produce eighteen wines solely from the estate Italian grape varietals that also flourish in various regions throughout Italy, including Sardinia, Calabria, Tuscany, Piedmonte, Umbria and Veneto. On the Cougar Winery menu, wines with names like Vermentino, Lambrusca di Alessandria, Brachetto, Aglianico, Pinot Grigio, Montepulciano and Sangiovese roll off the tongue like bread dipped as a benediction in olive oil or raviolis blessed by marinara sauce.  Which is one of the major reasons that the Buffingtons decided to produce Italian wines. “Rick loves Italian food! He would eat pasta every day if I would let him,” said Jennifer with a good-natured laugh.  “So what better reason to make Italian wine than to go with Italian food?” Indeed, Rick’s passion for Italian foods and Italian wines like Chianti and Sangiovese goes back at least as far as the laid-back days in the 1970s when he lived in Pacific Beach. “One of my good friends back then was Michael DePhilippis, a grandson of the founders of the popular and family-run line of Filippi’s Pizza Grottos, including the one in Pacific Beach.

fers the white wines and lighter red wines created from Italian grape varietals to the fuller-bodied wines such as Cabernet, Syrahs and Merlots which are produced by other Temecula wineries, according to Jennifer, who, like Rick, is approachable and so downto-earth that she has been known to wait on customers and help out with the grape crushing. But making Italian wines wasn’t what the Buffingtons had in mind when, as software design engineers, they relocated to Fort Worth, Texas to work for Boeing, Lockheed and Sprint in the early 1990s.  It was only at the happenstance suggestion of a beer-making friend that Rick and Jennifer first got the inspiration to try their hand at fermenting the grape.

The couple didn’t calculate for the hot summer weather in Texas which can play havoc with the fermentation process, but somehow in their first winemaking attempt they were able to make five gallons of Merlot that didn’t, as Rick likes to say with a grin, “make anybody too sick. We were hooked on winemaking from then on.” In 1995, the Buffingtons moved to Seattle where they were contractors at Boeing, and the change to a cooler climate proved to be a boon to their newfound passion for winemaking. Additionally, through the company’s Boeing Beer & Winemakers Club and its facility of grape crushers and tanks, the amateur winemakers had access to grapes from thirty eastern Washington vineyards, and the pair began making Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillion and Chardonnay. Rick, 58, and Jennifer, 50, soon decided to produce wine at their home on Cougar Mountain in Washington, even digging into the hill beneath their home to set up their winery, and for the first time gave their wines the Cougar Mountain Winery label. Set on the notion of growing their own grapes, the Buffingtons moved to Fallbrook in 2000, planting their one-acre vineyard of Sangiovese and Montepulciano d’Abruzzi grapes through their own hard work on a south-southwest facing hill that was cooled by afternoon breezes.  Not only did Rick and Jennifer find the ideal setting for planting their vineyard, they also appreciated the pastoral and artsy small town ambience of Fallbrook. “We love living in Fallbrook. It’s charming, it’s quiet and there is no building taller than two stories,” said Jennifer. “We feel like it is truly a village. It’s unique.” Four years later  after first planting their vineyard, the couple learned that they could become a bonded wholesale winery, and they converted their emptied-out three-car garage into a winemaking facility with sixty barrels and three small tanks. Expanding their winery “hobby” when Rick purchased a used crusher/ destemmer and tanks from a local Temecula winery, Cougar wine began to be sold in Fallbrook’s grocery stores, including Major Market, Daniel’s Apple Market and Albertsons, as well as restaurants in downtown San Diego. But by 2005, spurred on by the production of their popular Muscat Canelli sweet wine and family members’ urging, it was obvious that the Buffingtons needed to open a tasting room. “My father, especially, would look at our sixty barrels and keep asking when we were going to get serious about our ‘hobby’,” Jennifer recalled with a smile.  However, the costs to establish a wine tasting room and expanded winery in Fallbrook were double what the Cougar winemakers

had budgeted, said Rick, Wine from Anderson’s and the couple began approved vines are listscouting out Temecula ed on Cougar Winery’s Wine Country.

Are Health Coaches the Answer

to Reversing the Health Care Crisis?

Health Coach Marti Avila “It’s Easier to Prevent an Illness Then to Cure It.” – unknown


ust about everybody knows that junk food is bad for you, eating too much sugar taunts diabetes and research has shown us that red meat is linked to cancer. Diet books, exercise books and cook books can easily be checked out at libraries, purchased and borrowed. So why aren’t Americans in better shape? Carrying additional weight is the gateway to receiving all types of chronic diseases and illnesses. Obesity is the reason, for the first time ever, why today’s children are not expected to outlive their parents. But yet more than one-third, 35.7 percent, of adults are considered to be obese. More than 1 in 20, 6.3 percent, have extreme obesity. Almost 3 in 4 men, 74 percent, are considered to be overweight or obese. The prevalence of obesity is similar for both men and women, about 36 percent.1 With these devastating facts, is it any wonder why America is in the clutches of such a health care crises… with no end in sight? Cue the health coaches. After all, if you want to improve your golf game, you hire a golf pro. If you want to become a better athlete, you listen to a sports coach. If you want a better handle on your finances, you hire a financial adviser. Doesn’t it make perfect sense that if you want to get healthier, you hire a health coach? Although some people don’t know what health coaches are or that health coaching has been available for some time now, many may view heath coaches today the way they viewed chiropractors 20-30 years ago with wonder, skepticism and curiosity. Seeing that insurance companies don’t pay for the services of health coaches yet, again like chiropractors weren’t covered when they first started, using a health coach is not even on most people’s radar. 94

I must admit that I was not that familiar with the full extent of health coaching either, except for a title that is given to many people that sell MLM health products. Health coaches are educators, mentors and well… coaches. A good health coach should be certified in many modalities of diet of both body and mind, have patience, guide, be positive, hold hands, lead the way and have experience working with people creating custom programs for each and every client. Starting with modifying foods that their clients already like, teaching new habits that can be easily incorporated into their client’s busy schedule and most importantly, education on what is needed to improve their specific health issues is the heart of health coaching. Daily habits are what makes a life. Life is everything we eat, drink, think and do. To better understand what a health coach does and how it can help the health care crisi, Sourcebook has asked Marti Avila a certified: integrative nutrition health coach, an ayurveda practitioner, an Amen Clinic brain health coach, a corporate wellness facilitator and a vegan/vegetarian chef, to give us some insight. SB: What is a health coach? MA: A health coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who works with clients to help them feel their best through food and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet or way of exercising, health coaches tailor individualized wellness programs to meet their clients’ needs.

SB: Why did you become a certified integrative nutrition health coach? MA: It started when I weighed over 250 lbs when I was 19 years old. After trying all the popular diets, starving myself and even going on drugs under the supervision of a doctor, I finally went into a library and learned how to safely lose the weight myself and that sparked a passion. It took me over a year to lose over 100 lbs slowly and consistently. I had to first change my mindset then learn all new habits, exercise, drink water and take supplements. That was several decades ago. Since then, I feel that my mission in life is to help people get healthy. SB: What would be the first step to working with you or any health coach? MA: First we speak on the phone. The client tells me what health issues she/he has and we get to know each other. Then if we both feel comfortable, I e-mail them a 4 page “Health History” questionnaire. Once I receive that back, we set up a day and time to meet over Skype, Google Hangout or any other way on the internet, where we can see and hear each other. We then have a 1 hour paid session. From that first session, a client walks away with a wealth of information about what foods help or harm them for their particular condition, an immediate action plan, what they should watch out for to change and answer any and all questions.

SB: That’s just from the first one-hour meeting over the internet? Then what? MA: Yes. From there, if they are interested in hiring me as their health coach, I work up an estimate that includes the cost and how long I think it will take to coach them into new healthy habits so they see and feel an improvement in their health. Using food as medicine, we work together on a meal plan, recipes, and they receive a notebook. Before each session, I send them materials that we go over in our session, showing them how to look at situations in a different light, how to incorporate a new mindset, infusing play and fun so it’s a part of their daily life. SB: A new “mindset?” MA: Everything begins in the mind and brain. Once that is changed and in a healthy state, the rest is easy. That is why I got my certification from Dr. Daniel Amen as one of his brain health coaches. He is the world’s leading authority on brain health. Many of my client’s and my biggest successes have come to me through his clinic. Having a healthy, sharp, well-working brain determines what type of life you’ll have. SB: About how long is an average health coaching program? MA: It depends on the client and their situations. Remember these programs coaches a client into good daily habits and foods that they will practice for the rest of their lives! For someone just

Whenever possible, we stop whatever is causing the illness/disease, whether it’s physically, mentally or emotionally.

Emotions and mental stresses can cause illnesses.

trying to lose a little weight and is really committed, usually 5 to 7 weeks. For someone that has ADD, ADHD or OCD, depression, anxiety, addiction, etc. it can take 6 months or more. With the harder issues, the longer the program, the more likely the client will practice good healthy habits and eating for life. SB: Are there any illnesses or diseases that you have not been able to help? MA: I have found that any disease can be helped by a clean whole food diet specific to the needs of the client, along with education and information. As long as the client has an open mind and is willing to step outside their comfort zone, I’ve seen all kinds of “miracles,” including stage 4 cancer patients get healthier. The body has remarkable healing capabilities as long as you keep it clean, moving and give it the right nutrition as fuel to heal itself. SB: Speaking of stage 4 cancer, I understand you work with a Doctor in Mexico that specializes in helping cancer patients? MA: Yes! I have been working with Dr. Luis Velazques for about 2 decades now. He uses holistic live cell therapy. Cancer and other diseases respond Extremely well to that alternative therapy along with a healthy, whole food diet. SB: What exactly is “Live Cell” therapy? MA: There are many types of “Live Cell” treatments, but Dr. Velazquez uses a combination of holistic live cells. My family and I have had many “Live Cell” treatments from Dr. Velazquez for preventive purposes over the years. SB: Back to your health coaching practice, is good nutrition all that is needed to get healthier? MA: There is a certain protocol that has worked very well. And that is: 1st – Whenever possible, we stop whatever is causing the illness or disease, whether it’s physically, mentally or emotionally. For instance, if you are a smoker, the smoking must stop. If you are addicted to sugar, junk food, etc. that must stop. Again whenever possible, the poisoning must stop. 2nd - If a client is suffering from emotional or mental stresses, i.e. holding a grudge, anger, hatred, jealousy, stuffing down unexpressed feelings, etc., we dig to see what they may be and deal with them or at least view situations in a different light. It’s been my experience that there is always a mental or emotional accompaniment to illnesses. 96

3rd - The body must be cleaned or de-toxed. It depends on what the body is being poisoned with that determines what food we’ll use as medicine. Sometimes it’s been necessary to use colonics, which is one of the fastest ways to clean out the body. 4th - Build a strong body back up with good, organic whole foods and good daily healthy habits, movement (which I call exercise) mindsets, laughter and play. Normally though, it usually starts with the diet, eliminating red meat, sugar, white flour, sodas, junk food, GMO’s and other chemicals. Along with little to no exercise, being overweight, not being mindful and eating anything therefore using the body as a trash can, not drinking enough alkaline water and a life of not enough gratitude, being negative are the usual culprits for most diseases. SB: How can people that are interested in using a health coach get ahold of one? And what are the specific things to look for in a good health coach? MA: The good news is that most health coaches meet with clients over the internet so it really doesn’t matter where anyone is located. As long as the parties involved have access to the internet, there’s the ability of being able to see and hear each other. In-so-far as how do you pick a good health coach, I would say, ask a lot of questions about your specific health issues and see how you feel while talking to them. Does what the health coach have to say make sense to you? Do you two resonate? I feel that the most important things that a person should seek are trust and experience. SB: Is there any advice you’d like to leave us with? MA: Yes. Doesn’t it make sense to finally learn, once and for all, what to eat, do and think to have a good healthy body for the rest of your life? Doesn’t it make sense to live a healthy, happy life of preventing diseases instead of trying to cure them? With every bite of food and drink, you are either fighting a disease or you are feeding one. How much more would you love your life if you had energy, good health and happiness?

illiam Atkins’ lifetime career choice to be a physical therapist is written in his DNA. The pugilistic accomplishments of two generations of Atkins men, his grandfather and his father, fueled family stories and inspired in longtime Fallbrook resident Atkins a devotion to both community sports and a profession that helps injured athletes and non-athletes alike get back on top of their game. “Athleticism does run in the family so I suppose it was a natural choice for me to go into physical therapy and sports medicine,” said Atkins. The 61-year-old is an orthopedic clinical specialist and certified strength and conditioning specialist who heads All Star Physical Therapy in Fallbrook, located at 577 East Elder Street. “My grandfather Herbert Atkins, who was born in England and emigrated by way of Australia to the United States in 1906, won at least one title in amateur lightweight boxing while he was living in New York according to the family stories,” he said.  “And my father, Raymond Atkins, graduated from Vista High School’s very first four-year class in 1939, where he excelled in football and basketball, but he loved to box too,” recalled Atkins, who himself has been a stalwart booster of Fallbrook’s athletic community, including a stint as a strength coach for Fallbrook High School from 2005 to 2010. “In fact, my father and my grandfather often went down to the boxing clubs that were hugely popular in San Diego in the years before World War II, and even though he was too young to be allowed in the ring, my dad would lie about his age so that he could box the young military soldiers there,” Atkins said. Atkins’ father Raymond joined the United States Air Force during the war, and while stationed at Drew Field in Tampa, Florida, he not only obtained the rank of sergeant, he also won the Golden Gloves of Florida, an amateur boxing organization which is

593 E. Elder St, Suite A, Fallbrook


My father [Raymond Atkins] and my grandfather often went down to the boxing clubs that were hugely popular in San Diego in the years before World War II, and even though he was too young to be allowed in the ring, my dad would lie about his age so that he could box the young military soldiers there.

their avocado and citrus nursery, which still operates today under the Atkins name but is under different ownership, Atkins began working as a registered physical therapist at Fallbrook Hospital in 1981. In 1984, he started his own physical therapy business in Temecula, adding two partners along the way, and by  2006, Atkins’ company had successfully expanded to include nineteen clinics located throughout Moreno Valley, Riverside, southwest Riverside County and North County San Diego, including Fallbrook.  However, Atkins was dealt a hard blow when unforeseen circumstances in 2013 led to his departure from the company he built. He and his two partners, who also left the business, were faced with the question about how to start anew in providing physical therapy services for the community. To show pluck, in boxing terms, is to have determination. It means to show strength of heart.  Luckily, Atkins also has pluck and confidence in his genes. His pugilism-loving grandfather and his Swedish-born grandmother had rolled with some punches of their own during their lives and rebounded with new opportunities. Both were immigrants to America at the turn of the 20th century, and both found work and each other as servants in New York City’s upper East Side of Manhattan. Somehow they made the big dream leap to being farmers in Alberta, Canada, when the Canadian Pacific Railway was selling fertile prairie land on the cheap in 1910.  By 1928, however, the family, including Atkins’ father who was seven years old at the time, had seen their farming profits in Alberta dry up from a prolonged and devastating drought. So the Atkins clan moved south to sleepy Vista, California, a place they were rightly convinced would be the next emerging agricultural boomtown. Like his grandparents and his father and even his mother— who left her Boston home during World War II to join the U.S. Army Air Corps where she was trained as an airplane mechanic—Atkins doesn’t let life’s obstacles get in his way. So in 2013, Atkins joined All Star Physical Therapy, Inc., a company which had been founded by occupational therapist Paul DiMeglio in 2008 and consisted of two clinics at the time

t’s happened. Someone showed you a photo of yourself, and you suddenly realized to your shock that age is not just a number anymore. You aren’t alone when it comes to feeling like the passage of time has made you look like an older, grumpy, or weary version of your earlier self, says Dr. Georgina “Anna” Miller, who practices family medicine at Rancho Family Medical Group, which has offices in Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee and in Fallbrook, located at 521 E. Elder Street. “My patients were coming in for medical health reasons, but they also, particularly my female patients, kept telling me that they were tired of looking tired or grouchy when they weren’t,” said Dr. Miller, whose gentle manner and youthful appearance belie her nineteen combined

years of active duty military service and the military reserves. “They would ask me if I knew how to get rid of the wrinkles and lines in their faces and how they could get a fresher look without having to go through a lot of plastic surgery,” she added. “That’s what prompted me in 2015 to begin providing aesthetic cosmetic services in addition to continuing with family medical care.”  The results of Dr. Miller’s decision to undergo training for aesthetics procedures ranging from the ever-popular Botox injections to a newer therapy called Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, the extraction of platelets from one’s own blood microneedled into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin, have greatly exceeded her expectations.   “There has been a terrific response. People here are very hap-

py about having aesthetics treatments available,” she said, adding that her customers include both men and women. “It’s been so busy that I am now spending half of my time doing family medical care, and the other half to aesthetics services,” she said. However, the doctor, a petite woman who wears her summerblonde hair long and looks like she could be teaching a joyful yoga class instead of making professional medical rounds, is an experienced hand at making pragmatic and sure decisions about the direction of her life. Convinced that the biotech industry was where she wanted to build a career, Dr. Miller  graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1997, also fortuitously meeting her future

After college, the microscopic world intrigued Dr. Miller for a few years during which she performed bacterial transformations and other tasks in genetics such polymerase chain reactions—which is used in a number of applications including the diagnosis and monitoring of genetic diseases, forensics for identification of criminals, paternity testing and diagnosing infectious diseases. But a career in the biotech industry “turned out to be not what I wanted after all,” said Anna, adding that her husband Brandon also wanted to opt out of that world. Both of them decided to pursue medicine, but financing for medical graduate school for the couple seemed nearly insurmountable until an advisor wisely suggested that enlistment in the military would be one way to pay for the necessary education. Through a Health Professional Scholarship program offered by the U.S. Navy, both Anna Miller and her husband Brandon Miller earned their Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degrees from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in 2004. They then completed their Family Medicine Residency programs at a Naval hospital in Florida. Although their profession focuses on a form of hands-on care known as osteopath-

ic manipulative medicine used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness or injury, the training of osteopathic physicians is equivalent to the training of Doctors of Medicines. Both require four years of medical school, followed by an internship and a minimum of two years of residency. Osteopathic medical physicians have full practice rights as medical doctors in all 50 states, including serving in the U.S. armed forces, as done by the Millers, as physicians. When their residency in Florida ended, the Millers were assigned to the Naval Hospital in Twentynine Palms in 2007 where Dr. Anna Miller cared for active duty Marines retirees and their families. Not long after that, Brandon Miller was deployed to Iraq for seven months as a Navy physician with the 1st Medical Battalion from Camp Pendleton. After her husband returned from his deployment, it was Dr. Miller’s turn, and in September, 2010, she was sent to Djibouti, site of the only permanent U.S. military base in Africa, for six months. While there, the physician served as an acting emergency room doctor, volunteered off-base at an orphanage operated by nuns and “was even able to go on a few safaris,” she said. After their commitment with the Navy finished in 2011, the Millers decided to return to Fallbrook and join Rancho Family Medical Group to practice family medicine.  The Aesthetics procedures offered by Dr. Anna Miller include Botox injections and dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Bolvella and Voluma for reductions in wrinkles and

facial lines, microneedling for skin rejuvenation and PRP for hair loss in both men and women. Other procedures provided are easy-on-the-skin chemical peels, dermaplaning for exfoliation and sclerotherapy for treating spider veins. “Botox injections can also be given to treat medical conditions such as migraines and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and, in those cases, may be covered by insurance,” said Dr. Miller. Aesthetics medicine is used to treat a number of conditions including scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, liver spots, hair loss, skin discoloration and spider veins.  There are many different aesthetics treatments that can effectively rejuvenate skin’s appearance, and can be gentle on ther face and less expensive than other plastic surgery options, according to the doctor. With her background in biotech as well as her current practice of osteopathic medicine which, according to the Osteopathic Pledge of Commitment, emphasizes “the dynamic interaction of mind, body and spirit,” Dr. Anna Miller understands the connection between inner health and outer appearance. “People want to look as good as they feel,” she said, “but they also want to feel as good as they look!” Dr. Anna Miller and Rancho Family Medical Group is located at 521 E. Elder Street, Fallbrook. For more information about Aesthetics, call 951-225-6284 or visit or follow Dr. Anna on Instagram at fm.aesthetic.diva/

ccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 800,000 Americans suffer a new or recurrent stroke every year. In fact, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds, and someone dies of a stroke every four minutes, making stroke the fifth leading cause of death nationwide. According to experts, a stroke should be treated with the same urgency as a heart attack. Every second is critical to patient care, survival and subsequent quality of life. What is a Stroke? Stroke is sometimes called a brain attack. It occurs when there is an interruption in blood flow to the brain, or when a blood vessel bursts in the brain. Once deprived of the oxygen from the blood, the brain cells die. The most common form of stroke is an ischemic stroke, which is when an artery blockage occurs. Hemorrhagic strokes occur when an artery inside the brain ruptures or when an aneurysm at the base of the brain bursts. These account for about 20 percent of strokes. Common Stroke Warning Signs and Symptoms Suddenly experiencing the following signs and symptoms could indicate a possible stroke. Numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg -- especially on one side of the body. Confusion, trouble speaking or understanding. 108

Trouble seeing in one or both eyes. Trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination. Severe headache with no known cause. Acting FAST Awareness is the key to stroke prevention. If you or someone you know is experiencing any of the signs or symptoms listed above, act FAST because every second counts. Remembering the word FAST will remind you of the following:


Ask the person to smile. Does one side of the face droop?


Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?


Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence (i.e. “Do you know what time it is?”). Is the speech slurred or strange?


If the person cannot perform one or more of these simple tasks, call 9-1-1 immediately. How to Reduce Stroke Risk There are certain life choices that can help reduce the risk of stroke. These con-

trollable factors include avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, eating a balanced diet and getting exercise. Other factors, such as family history, age, gender and ethnicity, cannot be controlled. Certain medical conditions can also increase the risk of stroke. These include high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol and obesity. Rely on Temecula Valley Hospital Temecula Valley Hospital is a designated Stroke Receiving Center for San Diego and Riverside counties. The hospital has a clinical collaboration with UC San Diego Health to provide 24/7 Telestroke Rapid Response, which is a service that provides greater access to quality stroke and neurological care. Temecula Valley Hospital’s comprehensive stroke treatment, programs and services have earned the hospital the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Advanced Primary Stroke Center Certification, and the Get With the Guidelines® Stroke Silver Quality Achievement Award for fostering better outcomes for stroke patients in Temecula and the surrounding areas.

Village Acupuncture Kristine Vanderstock, L.Ac., MSTOM


here’s a new business in town – Village Acupuncture. Acupuncture is now more widely available in the Fallbrook/Bonsall area since Kristine Vanderstock, L.Ac., MSTOM opened Village Acupuncture at 121 E. Alvarado, adjacent to the Fallbrook Wellness Spa. Kristine has recently expanded her services to the Fallbrook area after several years of successfully treating patients in Temecula and San Diego. For thousands of years, acupuncture has been recognized as a safe, effective treatment, which activates healing mechanisms by inserting sterile, hairthin needles into the body. “Acupuncture is a simple, low-cost treatment offering immediate, effective and accessible treatment for many,” says Kristine. “We will work together to create a course of treatment tailored to meet your unique health needs,” she added. According to Kristine, “Acupuncture stimulates the body’s healing process, and our goal at Village Acupuncture is to help Fallbrook area patients achieve improved health utilizing natural, drug-free solutions – without the side effects of medication.” Kristine, a resident of Fallbrook, specializes in pain management and also works with patients with emotional disorders, migraine headaches, digestive issues, PTS, arthritis, anxiety, depression,

“Acupuncture treatments aren’t just about chronic pain – we can effectively treat many of your health issues and concerns.” – Kristine Vanderstock insomnia and stress management, to name a few. Kristine also offers facial rejuvenation, and herbal medicine and cupping, one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine. To obtain a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, Kristine suggests that a first time visitor have a 90 minute diagnostic session with her in order to ‘paint a picture’ of the patient. Acupuncture is a tool that can work synergistically with conventional Western medicine treatments. One of Kristine’s main goals with acupuncture is to help her patients lead a healthier, more balanced lifestyle and a sense of improved well-being without the ties of medication. Many insurance providers and networks now offer health plans that cover acupuncture, and Kristine will verify insurance eligibility for her patients. Kristine also specializes in Veterans services, and she is proud to be a “Veterans Choice” provider. Veterans in Fallbrook and surrounding areas who meet eligibility requirements can

he Temecula Wellness Center has changed its name and is now called Omega Brain Health and Nutrition Center. Dr. Terry A Rondberg, a chiropractor for over 43 years, has also studied and practiced acupuncture, ayurveda, massage, mind body medicine and energy medicine. Dr. Rondberg is the author of many books. He and his wife, nutritionist Ruth Rondberg are doing amazing work – helping people overcome chronic diseases, helping kids with ADHD, debilitating illnesses, preventing alzheimer’s and much more through non-invasive natural means. “We integrate cutting-edge neuroscience, nutrition and proper

hydration,” Rondberg said. “We make good brains great with a natural approach using state-of-theart neuroscience promoting regeneration on a cellular level. We are Dr. Terry A. Rondberg and Ruth Rondberg. your ultimate healing partners.” Courtesy photo They begin with a brain scan and lab work measuring two types of brain health; the structural brain health the nutritional health of the neurons and the functional brain health; measure how strong the brain’s connections are. Our assessment quantifies four structural biomarkers from blood cells and measures four cognitive functions; attention, memory, executive function and cognitive flexibility. Each of these is scored based on the latest scientific research and validated normative databases. They measure, improve and track brain health. If it can be measured, they can change it. They allow for complete healing, starting with the most important organ – their brain – which controls 100 percent function in the human body. Coming to Omega Brain Health & Nutrition is like taking the brain to the spa. They are one of the few practices in the country licensed to administer a new state-of-the-art, science-based brain assessment Brain Lab. Brain Lab includes both blood tests and a 15-minute interactive online test to measure attention, memory, processing speed and cognitive flexibility. This lab discloses whether or not a person is a candidate for dementia or other neural dysfunction which can cause attention problems, impulsiveness, memory decline, mood instability and behavior problems. Inflammation leads to many chronic diseases. Brain Lab will report a person’s inflammation levels and offer specific remedies to help them back on the road to health. It is extremely affordable at $199. Most people consider themselves “healthy,” if they look good and feel good, yet over half of all Americans have some form of chronic issue, including high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, anxiety, learning disorders, chronic hives, Alzheimer’s, dementia, fibromyalgia, addictions, brain injury, PTSD, weight and many other conditions. These are conditions the Rondberg’s successfully deal with. For people who truly have no “symptoms or conditions” the Rondbergs can help you prevent disease, which is the very definition of wellness. They partner with patients so

they can become their own doctor and be responsible for their own future health. Dr. Terry Rondberg said, “What’s amazing about the energy medicine we practice is how we have blended the ancient wisdom of eastern medicine, acupuncture and Ayurveda, along with massage, chiropractic, modern psychology and neuroscience. Energy medicine corrects interference in the brain and nervous system on many different physical, chemical and emotional levels and provides us with the best potential for healing our body and mind; it truly is like taking your brain to the spa.” In addition to the Brain Lab, part of the initial consultation also includes a brain scan, using an electroencephalograph, i.e. qEEG. This is a medical device that produces a record of brain activity.  This machine uses 19 electrodes placed on the scalp to monitor the electrical activity of the brain.  Irregularities recorded indicate brain dysfunction which can help determine how healthy theirr brain is functioning.  The brain controls 100 percent function of all your organs and tissue cells.  EEG’s are also used to establish clinical death in hospitals. Current neuroscience suggests energy medicine can balance out the brain and autonomic nervous system. What does that mean? When the control centers of the brain are healthy and working at

optimal capacity, it promotes regeneration on a cellular level and restores life support systems. The benefits are that the patient is healthy and has a better quality of life. According to the Mayo Clinic, chronic stress puts people’s health at risk and can wreak havoc on their mind and body. The long-term activation of the stress-response system — and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones — can disrupt almost all the body’s processes. This overload puts people at increased risk of numerous health problems, including: • Anxiety • Heart disease • Depression • Sleep problems • Digestive problems • Weight gain • Headaches • Memory and concentration impairment Another tool utilized at Omega Brain Health and Nutrition Center to improve brain function is something Dr. Rondberg developed called Bioenergy. It’s a scientific method for correcting interference in muscles, nerves and blood vessels in the muscles of the upper neck. Relieving brainstem tension from this area of the body allows the body to function more efficiently and increase total wellbeing. It can also strengthen the immune system which helps prevent many diseases and conditions, including strokes, kidney failure, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, lung disease and cancer. The plain fact is chronic diseases can be prevented and most people can restore their health without drugs and surgery. The Rondberg’s help people protect themselves and their loved ones from chronic diseases by inspiring you to choose a wellness lifestyle. For a free consultation, call 951-699-5000.

Chronic Disease to Health Through Diet

My Journey from by Julie Reeder


n a previous year‘s Sourcebook we did a feature on Leslie Kirchmeyer, a woman who healed herself of cancer twice with food. Julie Reeder Another year we did a story about the benefits of juicing. This year we are talking about the benefits of a health coach and brain health and diet as it relates to chronic disease. This is out of an intense desire to bring to light how important diet is to our health. This is probably TMI (too much information) but because the chronic health issues I’ve struggled with are epidemic in our country, I’m hoping that some of you may find this helpful. I’ve struggled with Type 2 diabetes (25 years), Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (30 years), high blood pressure (since the recession), chronic hives for 8 years (also surfaced after the recession), asthma, and was even diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis decades ago. My hips were very sore from Bursitis and kept me from sleeping very well or exercising. I’ve always struggled with my weight, but in the last couple

years I have found the answer to all of those issues and most of them are becoming a memory of the past. Two years ago, a family friend, after hearing about my chronic hives, suggested I watch a movie on Netflix called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.” I watched that movie and took the message to heart. The subject of the film had many of my same health issues and cleared them all up within a short period of time by changing his diet. I was amazed how quickly most of my problems cleared up when I just took processed sugar, breads, processed foods (cereal is one of my favorites) and most carbs out of my diet. So now I eat a low carb, high fat (not corn or vegetable oils or margarines), low to moderate protein diet with all the greens and richly colored vegetables as I can eat. I do eat fruit in moderation because of the sugar/carbohydrates. My blood pressure is down 45 points to almost normal, my blood sugars are normal, my hives and bursitis are both gone and only flare up when I cheat and eat high carbs or sugar. My inhaler is all but a thing of the past.

We enjoy offering General Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Dentures, Implants and Orthodontics.

Because Alzheimer’s and Dementia run in my family, I decided to do a test ($199) at the Omega Brain Health and Nutrition Center in Temecula where I have been learning to eat a healthy diet. The Brain Lab is the latest technology that takes a blood test and gives you a specific, customized, individual report showing several markers, including inflammation. My inflammation was off the charts and likely the cause of most of my chronic conditions, which I’m still working on. It gave me specific supplements to take to improve my brain health and overall health, including one that I was very deficient of – Omega 3. You see, if you eat a lot of processed foods, fast food, etc., you’re likely getting more Omega 6s, which you do need in small amounts, but the Omega 3s are the healthy fats that keep you healthy and your brain function strong. The Brain Lab, through a series of easy computer touch screen “games”, also tests your cognitive abilities (and hey, I did really well!). There’s a new age upon us. We are learning yet another lesson on how the old ways are best. Even fats are okay, as long as they are good fats. This is just my own story - I’m not a doctor - but I can tell you that what I’ve been taught about low fat, low salt, grain rich diets isn’t true, and I’m enjoying butter and coconut oil and I’m salting my eggs to taste and getting healthier every day. Life is much more enjoyable now. My weight is coming off finally without too much effort. I’ve lost almost 20 lbs, but still have 50 to go. Hopefully next year my staff photo will look much nicer! We are blessed with wonderful doctors and medical services in our area, but we have to do our part to be healthy, and it starts with healthy food. This is my journey, I would love to hear about yours.

Skills Merchandise display maven Claudia Morris of Level One beats the new store opening buzzer every time

No, we’re not talking about boxes, fancy ribbons and shiny paper. We’re talking about space. Interior retail store space that is filled with cleverly-placed lighting and museum-style display cases, trendy urban shelving and wall-grabbing graphics, custom modular fixtures and gleaming floors just waiting to be walked on by thousands of customers. It’s all the behind-the-scenes stuff that gets done in an amazing three-day turnaround before a new Nike store opens, and Claudia Morris, president, CEO and founder of Level One Installation and Remodel Services, Inc., has the schedule down to a science. “We have done the new store installations for Nike stores in all forty-eight contiguous states in the country, and also in Puerto Rico, Guam and Canada” said Fallbrook resident Morris, 61, who is still enjoys coordinating new store installation projects despite more than thirty years in the retail merchandising display and “fixturing” industry.

by Sandra Shrader

In the United States, according to the Level One executive, there are only a few women business owners in the field of specialized installation services for retail display, and in Morris’ case, she may be the only female business owner to do so in the sporting goods and athletic apparel industry. How she got to be a leader in her field started back in the 1980s, and was due to a remarkable confluence of the frozen yogurt craze, a shift in how the food products and other items were merchandised in grocery stores and pure gumption by Morris. “You wouldn’t know it today, but how products get to the grocery store shelves has dramatically changed over the past thirty years,” said Morris. “Up until the late 1980s, the retailing service for manufacturers’ food products in grocery stores had historically been done by store employees,” she explained. “But at the same time, products for health, beauty and housecleaning were also beginning to be brought in to the stores.” The result was an increased demand for labor, accompanied by a rise in labor costs, in grocery stores.  And, unfortunately, relying on retail food store employees to place products on shelves did not always

guarantee distributors and companies that their goods would be consistently stocked on shelves, given that by the end of the 1980s, a grocery store on average carried approximately 22,000 items. “As a way to offset the higher labor costs in grocery stores, the companies and distributors began to hire and use their own sales professionals to handle stocking their goods on stores shelves,” said Morris. “But they also soon discovered that cost too much, and was not an effective use of their resources.” The solution was to outsource the merchandising activities to third-party companies, and the quick-thinking Morris spotted the opening in a new industry trend. “I began a company in Orange County called Shelf-Watchers, Inc. in 1988,” she said, adding that she received investment backing for the start-up from her former employer Reesa Hahn, the woman who founded the wildly popular Penguin’s Frozen Yogurt in the calorie-conscious, Jane-Fonda-workout-videos era of the 1980s. “We made sure that our clients, companies like Procter & Gamble, Leggs Pantyhose and Nathan’s Meats, for example, got their products placed and maintained on grocery store shelves,” said Morris. “And that meant being completely hands-on. We did everything, even down to making sure that we did stuff like rotating out items such as packaged hot dogs before their expiration dates!” However, as what can occur when small businesses have clients who are manufacturing and distributing giants, the gap between Shelf-Watchers’ immediate costs of payroll and accounts payable versus its accounts receivable widened to as much as 120 days. Although slow pay is not an uncommon business payment practice by larger companies, Morris found the process unsustainable, and she decided to shutter Shelf-Watchers. But she knew by then that providing third-party merchandising services was her professional calling, and Morris soon joined with Irvine-based PIA Merchandising Services Co., another forwardlooking business in that emerging industry.  It proved to be a smart decision.  In 1989, PIA, which had previously operated only with grocery retail chains in California and Arizona, decided to go with a national expansion strategy. By 1994, the company was providing services to grocery retailers themselves in addition to mass merchandisers, chain drug stores and deep discount drug stores, and had a client roster of 180 branded product companies including heavy-hitters like Lever Brothers, Colgate-Palmolive, Safeway, Vons, Ralston Purina and Kmart. PIA also initiated a client project services division, and that’s when Morris really began to hit her stride, forming and expanding the Retail Resources division of the company for just that kind of merchandising services.  “I didn’t say no to any promo idea that the client wanted to be done, even if I had no idea at the time about how I was going to pull it off,” said Morris.  “A customer of ours who was associated with the CompUSA store in Newport Beach came to me and the division team members with the idea of having a promotion that included the use of a sailboat. Of course, there was no way we could have used a real sailboat – it would have been too big and too difficult to move around,” she said, laughing at the recollection.  “I had no idea how I was going to make it happen, but, of SOURCEBOOK 2017

course, I said, ’Yes, sure, we can do that. No problem,’” she continued. “But we actually did end up assembling a Snark sailboat which had a hull made of styrofoam, a mast, triangular sail and a rudder. The whole boat, which actually could be used for sailing, weighed about 50 pounds, and the promotion turned to be a huge hit!” Not only did PIA’s Retail Resources provide special instore promotional and merchandising installation activities for seasonal or new product rollouts, it also, and more importantly for Morris, performed installations new store sets and existing store resets, a skill set that she took to naturally. “My parents had a paint and wallpaper shop when I was growing up,” Morris said, “and I would spend hours and hours flipping through wallpaper books and remodeling magazines. So merchandising and installation services for new store openings was already in my blood.” In 1995, Morris, sensing the financial troubles that would later sink PIA, left the firm and went on to join a St. Louis-based merchandising company that provided services nationwide for Fortune 500 companies like Nabisco, General Mills, Gillette, Wrigley and others. However, by 2003, Morris, who had moved to Fallbrook from Laguna Niguel in 2001 with her husband Rick Morris, decided it was time to create her own merchandising and installation services company, Level One Installation and Remodel Services, Inc.  126

She also wisely decided to concentrate on only a few select clients which currently include Nike, one of the world’s largest suppliers of athletics shoes and apparel and a major manufacturer of sports equipment, shipping titan FedEx and Dick’s Sporting Goods, a Fortune 500 American sporting goods retailer. But although Morris operates as the command center and coordinator for dozens of new store merchandising installation projects all going on simultaneously, Level One is no onewoman show, she is proud to say. Whenever talking about her company, Morris first always gives credit where credit is due: to all the independent teams of dedicated project managers, installers, electricians, the truckers who transport the materials, flooring specialists, carpenters, graphic designers, electronic equipment experts, sign makers and countless other skilled professionals who work on-site before each new store opening. And Morris particularly credits her husband Rick, a retired firefighter and now vice-president of Level One where he oversees project development and installation. Also, Rick’s natural passion for fishing and golf also provides another great service at Level One. “Clients often call and invite us to go on fishing trips or to go golfing,” said Morris, waving her elegantly polished nails and an armful of silver bangles.  “You will  never  catch me on a fishing boat or a golf course fairway so I tell him to go for me, and believe me, he is more than happy to go. That kind of public relations is right up his alley,” she said There are days when Morris’ “can-do-it” attitude sometimes needs a boost. A recent day in March was challenging due a massive blizzard causing project delays for new Nike store on the east coast, road problems that were throwing truckers off schedule and a load of badly-needed cement was stuck at the border in Mexico. It was just another day in the life of Claudia Morris and Level One. And yet, despite setbacks and challenges that occur in her installations services and merchandising business, every problem is eventually overcome and forgotten by the time a client’s new store opens its doors. Not only does she manage to beat the clock, Morris does it with a “perfect is good enough” final game-winning flourish. For more information about Level One or to see their work, visit

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

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. 127

Community Served by

Third and Fourth Generation Fallbrook Businesses by Nathalie Taylor

Statistics show that the success of family businesses drop rapidly after the first generation, so any business that has made it to the third generation must be providing an excellent service to the community. The community, in turn, has responded with trust and continued patronage. The businesses highlighted in this article are run by third generation owners â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and one business has even made it to the fourth generation.


Durling Nursery – Four Generations Durling Nursery, Inc. is a fourth generation nursery established in 1926. It has 68 employees, and many have been employed by the company for over 20 years. A wholesale grower of citrus, avocado and fruit trees, many of their trees have been shipped internationally. Customers include movie stars and world leaders, as well as retail shoppers at Home Depot, Lowe’s and other stores. The Martha Stewart Show featured Durling Nursery citrus trees on one of the television segments. The business was founded by Clarence Durling. Durling was the superintendent at the Rancho Santa Fe Orchard Development in the mid-1920s. One of his responsibilities was to locate avocado trees for new orchards. He had difficulty finding trees, so he started his own avocado nursery in 1926. The Depression of 1929 put an end to that location, and the nursery relocated to Pico Rivera. After World War II, Clar-


ence asked his son Robert to join the business. In the late 1940s, the nursery moved to Orange County. In the sixties, the nursery need to expand so they found some land in the Morro Hills area of Fallbrook. Robert then invited his son, Don, to join him in the business after Don had attended Cal Poly State College (now University). Don retired in 2009. The nursery again relocated, this time to 175 acres in the DeLuz area of Fallbrook, where it remains. Robert’s daughters, Carol Elder and Christy Westerhold, managed the office, before Christy retired in 2009. Even in his nineties, Robert continued to work at the nursery, and passed away in 2013 at the age of 94. Durling Nursery continues to be run by Robert’s daughter, Carol, who is CEO and her husband Wayne Elder, who is nursery manager. Their son, Craig, is operations manager, and Craig’s wife Wendy is office manager.

The key to a successful family business is having family members with a passion for the business and not just a feeling of entitlement. The business must be a life and not just a job. They must be visionary and continually willing to change and keep current with trends and industry changes.

Kevin Durling is the shop manager. It is not only the Durling family who have persisted in employment, but the nursery foreman, Juan Garcia, has helped to manage the nursery for over 37 years. Juan’s son, Joel, is the field and loading dock supervisor, and Joel’s wife, Amber, is assistant office manager. Durling Nursery has been a family-run business since 1926 and even has a fifth generation waiting to serve – just give Robert’s granddaughter Callie Elder a few more years.

Grand Tradition – Three Generations The Grand Tradition Estate, founded in 1984, is a piece of paradise with not so secret gardens. Within the estate, a noble Victorian-style structure, the Beverly Mansion, is perched on a grassy hill and overlooks a serene lake. The Grand Tradition is a venue for special events, including weddings, receptions, anniversaries, birthdays, memorials and the list goes on. They offer public gardens, a public restaurant, The Veranda, as well as full service on-site catering. Everything done at the Grand Tradition is done in style. In 1984, Earl and Beverly McDougal, with partners Jack and Shirley Story and Dorin (Dode) and Muggins Martin, founded the business. However, the partnership was dissolved after two years. When the property was purchased there was a swamp in the middle of the land, but the McDougals didn’t see the swamp as a detriment, they just pushed forward and turned it into a magnificent lake. As a home economics teacher, Beverly was adept at cooking, and thus the idea of a food-related event business was born. The McDougals were so bent on perfection when building the mansion that the couple worked on pieces of the railings, molding and trim at night in their garage. Years later the McDougal’s son, Don, began work in the business, and now Don’s son, Mark is an integral part of the enterprise. Over the years, the Grand Tradition has served celebrities such as three San Diego Charger football players: LaDainian Tomlinson, Antonio Cromartie and Carlos Polk. Judge Lance Ito, O.J. Simpson Trial Judge, performed a wedding ceremony at the Grand Tradition and Congressman Darrell Issa’s son was married there. Among celebrities attending weddings at the venue have been Bill Walton and Rue McClanahan.  In 2007, the Grand Tradition cancelled several weddings when the town of Fallbrook was evacuated due to a wildfire.

The business must be a life and not just a job.  They must be visionary and continually willing to change and keep current with trends and industry changes.” The Grand Tradition Estate & Gardens is located at 220 Grand Tradition Way, Fallbrook. For further information, please call (760) 728-6466.

Copies of the directory are available year-round at the Fallbrook Directory office.

The Fallbrook Directory, a third generation business, publishes a complimentary telephone book, which is distributed to the public annually. Second generation owner Charles Mackey is shown with third generation employee, Courtesy photo Carla Mackey, his daughter.

The waiting area of the office is clean and pleasant. One wall is lined with team photographs dating back to the early seventies. Scrappy’s has been sponsoring soccer and other youth sports teams since then. Steve mentioned that they feel it is very important to invest in team sponsorship, so they still make it a priority. The business was founded in 1967 by Forrest “Scrappy” Scrape.

Wilbur Mackey took over Fallbrook Directory in 1958, and also owned the Fallbrook Courtesy photo Enterprise newspaper.

Forrest retired from the U.S. Marine Corps and opened the Douglas Gas Station in 1962, then in 1967 he opened Scrappy’s Tire & Auto at its current location. Forrest’s son Larry, joined his father in the early 70s. Larry owned and operated the business from 1970 until he passed away in April of 2012. Larry had no plans for retirement.

Steve Scrape began working with his father, Larry, at Scrappy’s after graduating from Fallbrook High School in 1984. Steve still runs the business. Many residents who have moved out of town still return to Scrappy’s for service. Why? “They know they will always be treated right and get a good price,” Steve explained. Just as the business itself is a third generation business, many of Scrappy’s customers are third and fourth generation customers. Steve mentioned that many customers tell him, “This is where my parents and grandparents always came for tires and so do I.” Scrappy’s has never expanded or tried to compete with chaintype stores. Their business has always focused on providing high quality products and stellar service delivered with honesty and integrity. Scrappy’s employees have been with them for many years, and some are second and third generation. “We believe in family, work as a family, and treat our customers like family,” Steve noted. “We have immense pride to be part of the Fallbrook community and will continue to support the community and youth organizations just as we have since 1967.” Scrappy’s is located at 346 S Main Ave, Fallbrook. The telephone number is (760) 728-9252. Fallbrook Directory – Three Generations The Fallbrook Directory, a complimentary telephone book, is distributed to the public annually. It is a thrill for many residents when the publication shows up on their driveways once a year. In our family, the Fallbrook Directory is the only hard-copy telephone book that we have used for about 15 years. It has a special spot in our kitchen drawer. We can always count on a delightful cover photograph depicting an iconic Fallbrook scene. The publication was founded in 1953 by a local service organization called Twenty-Thirty Club, and continued as their publication until 1957 when the Optimist Club took over for the next two years. In late 1958, three years after moving to Fallbrook and buying the Fallbrook Enterprise newspaper, Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur Mackey took over the publication, which was 120 pages. Ninetytwo of the pages comprised the White Section, and twenty-two pages were Classified Advertising. In 1984, the Mackey’s younger son, Charles, bought the Fallbrook Directory from their family business, the Fallbrook Enterprise newspaper. Charles Mackey’s daughter, Carla, grew up in the business and became a full-time employee following her college graduation in 2012. She studied at San Francisco State University and Cal State San Marcos, graduating from the latter with a bachelor’s degree in human development, and a minor in psychology. Carla now works as the assistant to the Shirley Seith-Bergholz, who is general manager. Shirley joined the company in the late eighties. The Fallbrook Directory continues to grow. The current 2017 Edition contains 808 pages, with more than 500 pages of business listings and advertising. “We have the pleasure of working with so many local businesses and business owners,” Charles Mackey commented. Copies of the directory are available year-round at the Fallbrook Directory office at 414 S. Main Avenue, Fallbrook. Call them at (760) 728-5555. SOURCEBOOK 2017

Division 3 is the central part of the RMWD service area and includes the Gird Valley and Pala Mesa. Gasca has lived on Wilt Road since 2011 but previously lived in San Bernardino County and served two four-year terms on the Running Springs Water District board. “He brings experience from serving on a board,” Kennedy said. “He brings some understanding of water districts.” Gasca was born in Los Angeles and attended Saint Francis High School in La Canada. In 1974 he received his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Loyola Marymount University; his field

Gasca chosen for Rainbow MWD board vacancy Miguel Gasca is the newest member of the Rainbow Municipal Water District (RMWD) board. A 4-0 board vote Feb. 28 selected Gasca to fill the Division 3 seat vacated after Tory Walker moved to Murrieta and resigned from the board. Gasca will fill the remainder of Walker’s term, which expires in December 2018. “I’m glad to have the opportunity to serve the community,” said Gasca. “He’ll be a good addition to the board,” said Rainbow general manager Tom Kennedy.

The Bonsall Unified School District (BUSD) board of trustees has voted to publish a request for proposals (RFP) for “lease-lease back” services for the Bonsall High School Capital Improvement program, in accordance with recently enacted AB2316. This would be a method that could potentially allow for the school district to fund the high school on its Gird Road site by leasing the land to a developer, who would build the campus and, in turn, lease it back to the district. A component of AB2316 provides for board adoption and approval of the guidelines and requirements for selection of the lease-leaseback firm on a best value basis. This includes the approval of the evaluation process set forth in the RFP that is to be used for the selection of the successful “best value” lease-lease back firm. According to Bonsall district superintendent Justin Cunningham, the leaseback agreement is written loosely so that contractors may apply, indicating how they may be able to fulfill the basic tenants of the contract. “We’ve used a lease-lease back for three schools: Bonsall West, Bonsall Elementary and the two high school buildings,” said Cunningham. “Contractors are not necessarily signing a contract for building. Different contractors will show how they will meet your criteria – some will use more sub-contactors, or others will have more focus on a project manager. There are different ways that contractors build schools, and they show how they would set the parameters.” “You have an arrangement that lets you have a guaranteed cap on construction costs,” continued Cunningham. “We then select the best value, not just the lowest bid that will end up charging us for every little extra thing, which would have us lose control of the bottom line. We are able to find a contractor that could build within the budget, and offer the services we need within those parameters.” Though the process has begun
