Free Public Veteran's Day Concert on November 11
 
veterensdayconcertpic.jpg
The Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters announced their 11th Annual Free Veteran's Day Concert on Tuesday, November 11. Doors open at noon.

Now a tradition, this program has been offered for many years by the band and choir students of Valley Center Middle and High Schools.  "Each year, we ask several hundred of our performing arts students to share their talents during their day off from school in order to celebrate and recognize all service members," said Diane Conaway, President of the Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters. "This free community event has a full house each year, so come early and enjoy pre-show entertainment from the Len and Greg Beck Jazz Duo, starting at noon."
 
Refreshments and light meals are available for purchase in the Maxine Theater lobby, located at the Valley Center High School.  The free concert starts at 1:00 p.m.
 
The award-winning Middle School Thunderhawk and High School Jaguar Jazz Bands will be performing classic Big Band sounds for guests' enjoyment. The Maxine will rumble when the VCHS Roaring Jaguar Marching Band and Drumline arrive with a special surprise.  Additionally, you will be entertained by the famed VCHS Concert Band and versatile, award-winning singers from the Valley Center Middle School and High School Choirs.  The event is sponsored in part by Left Coast Engineering and RE/MAX United.

"Our job as Boosters of this incredibly talented organization is to continually support Valley Center's instructors and students in their amazing journey showcasing their many talents and hard work," added Conaway. "Our fundraising efforts start from day one of school and continue straight through numerous events leading up to our grand finale with the 4th Annual VCMusicFest set for Saturday, June 6 at Bates Nut Farm in Valley Center."
 
The Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters budget supports approximately 700 students at five schools, including: performance and competition attire; musical instrument purchases and repairs so that no student misses the opportunity to pursue his or her passion; transportation to numerous competitions; and even an additional trailer for carrying all the items the performers need as the bands and choirs continue to grow.
 
The Valley Center Pauma/Music Boosters is a non-profit, all volunteer organization designed to support music in Valley Center and Pauma Schools. They are currently challenging the Valley Center Community to raise $100,000 this school year to help the students reach their continually growing audience, including invited performances at places like Disneyland and San Francisco.  Anyone can become a Booster member and contribute to this goal. 
 
In addition, the Boosters organize many fundraising opportunities throughout the year: Krispy Krème doughnut sales, cookie dough sales, the annual Jazz Benefit set for Sunday, March 8, 2015 and the VCMusicFest on June 6, 2015.  The profits generated at this concert's concessions stands are used to meet our goal, so please support the students' endeavors.

So I Was Thinking…“Back-up Plan”
By Phyllis Knight  
 
PhyllisKnightPhoto.jpg
Remember when times were simpler? Not always better, but definitely simpler. Not so many choices to make – and especially about things we didn’t understand. For instance, I am so not high-tech. My husband recently asked me what kind of new phone I wanted and I said “pink”… Apparently, not the answer he was seeking.
 
I don’t pretend to comprehend even half of the gadgets (is that even still a word?) that I have. Worse, about the time I’m just getting used to the one I do have, it’s time to get a new one (like the phone). But I do get used to it, and then can’t seem to function well without it. Go figure.
 
Like I said, I get comfortable - dare I say, even confident, and occasionally even competent - with what I have, and that’s why I like to keep what I have for as long as possible. (I’ve been married to the same man for 39 years... ‘nough said.) Now, take my car, for example. When I got my new Town & Country last year with all the bells and whistles (read: gadgets) after driving my Mountaineer for ten years, I was a little overwhelmed. I couldn’t even imagine what some of the buttons were for. It took me a little while to realize the little button with the red “up” arrow wasn’t an ejection seat. But, oh, how sometimes I wish it were. (Okay, who hasn’t thought one would come in handy for backseat drivers on occasion?) Don’t even get me started on the “hands-free phone set-up.” It only takes me five times longer to make a phone call now than it used to.
 
The back-up camera definitely was a new experience for me. Instead of relying on constant head-swiveling and neck-craning, I could actually be guided by the camera…if I could just learn to trust it. Aw, therein lies the rub. When you have depended on your own abilities to guide you, it isn’t easy to let go of that control and put your trust in something else. But, as I began to rely on it more, the more it proved itself trustworthy and true, and the more it has become second nature to trust it and let it guide me.
 
There are a couple of other things noteworthy about the camera as well. The first is, not only do I have to trust that the camera is true, I have to follow its guidelines or I’m in big trouble. I know that as long as I stay within the green lines, I’ve got smooth sailing. When I test the waters by edging into the yellow lines, it gets a little dicey, and I have to tread more carefully. If I dared to wade into the red lines, I’d be sunk.
 
The other important aspect of the camera is that across the top as you’re backing up is the warning: CHECK ALL SURROUNDINGS! In other words, just because you are staying within the lines, it doesn’t mean that you can’t or won’t be blindsided by those who are not following the same lines as you.
 
So I was thinking…
 
What a great way to depict our faith in God! If we’ve never trusted Him before, it takes a little getting used to, to allow ourselves to be guided by Him. As our faith grows, because of His faithful guidance, we are able to trust Him more, rely on Him more and follow His guidelines.
 
God is faithful and true, but our journey with Him runs smoother when we stay within the guidelines He has given us in His Word. And in His Word, He warns us to be on the lookout for those who cross our paths, not following His guidelines. He wants us to stay the course, ever mindful of those who intentionally, or even unintentionally, distract us, block our path, and/or cause us damage.
 
I drove a car recently without the back-up camera and was lost without it; I have come to depend on it that much. And that’s how we are without God, we’re lost. So, this begs the question, are you allowing God to be the camera directing your life? If not, then isn’t it time to back-up, and get your life in focus?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:4-5 (NKJV)

Bates Nut Farm: A Valley Center Tradition 
By Assemblymember Marie Waldron 


Bates-3.jpg
For many people in San Diego County and throughout Southern California, Valley Center and Bates Nut Farm are synonymous. Since its founding over ninety years ago, visiting Bates Nut Farm has become a tradition for countless San Diego families.
 
From its beginnings as a family walnut farm, Bates has expanded to a major retailer providing pistachios, pecans, peanuts and other nuts from around the world. Over 5,000 square feet of retail space selling everything from jewelry and fudge to kitchen items and collectibles make Bates a major retail presence in Valley Center. Tractor parades, a yearly pumpkin patch, music festivals, craft fairs, gourmet food truck celebrations, a farm zoo and much more have made Bates Nut Farm an integral part of life in this region.
 
But Bates Nut Farm is much more than a retail location. Bates often donates use of its property to nonprofits such as the American Cancer Society, which recently raised $90,000 at their Relay for Life event. Valley Center Lion's Club and Valley Center Optimists are among local service organizations holding fundraisers and selling food at many Bates events. Bates also donates sales and clothing items to the Assistance League Thrift Store in Escondido and supports Coffee for Kids, a non-profit that provides medicine for sick children in Honduras. 
 
Through its sponsorship of community events, its support of local charities and numerous philanthropic organizations, Bates Nut Farm has become an example of how hard work pays off, not only for the entrepreneur -- in this case four generations of the Bates family -- but for the entire community. For these reasons I am proud to designate Bates Nut Farm as my October Business of the Month.

It protects you from liability, ensures that you meet the required local disclosures and exposes your home to the most knowledgeable real estate professionals in the area. Now there's an added benefit. Members of the Valley Center Real Estate Professionals have pledged a portion of their commission to the Valley Center Community Aid Group, a 501c3 helping those in need in our community.
 
Members have given over $100,000 in scholarships to Valley Center High School graduating seniors in the last 10 years, and more than $12,000 to families in need in Valley Center in the last 3 years. Funds are raised through an annual golf tournament and other special events throughout the year.
 
Additionally, these professionals adhere to the highest standards of excellence in ethics, all while giving back to our community. If you'd like to know more, contact Diane Conaway at (760) 749-2888.

Missing Person at Risk - Julian
 
SDSheriffNewsReleaseEmail2902.jpg
Update 10/13/14: A reported sighting of 75-year-old Sally Estabrook, who has been missing for more than a week, led dozens of Sheriff's Search and Rescue (SAR) volunteers to a Scripps Ranch neighborhood. However, the search turned out to be fruitless.
 
The Sheriff's Department received a tip Monday afternoon (October 13th) from someone who reported seeing a woman matching Sally's description walking northbound along Semillon Boulevard at Scripps Trail. Search and Rescue volunteers were quickly called into the area.
 
After hours of searching, SAR volunteers located the woman who was originally spotted. However, it was not Sally Estabrook.
 
Sally, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease, was last seen on Saturday, October 4th at the Pinezanita RV Park and Campgrounds in Julian. Her husband took a shower and when he returned, Sally was gone.
 
Since then, hundreds of volunteers have searched the area in and around the Julian campground for any sign of Sally. The search for Sally will resume on Tuesday morning, but on a smaller scale.
 
Sally Estabrook stands 5'4" tall, weighs 145 pounds and has shoulder length blonde hair. She may be wearing a teal top and white capris pants.
 
Because Sally suffers from Alzheimer's, she isn't very communicative, but might respond to her name.
 
If you have seen Sally or have any information on her whereabouts, call 9-1-1 or the Sheriff's Department at (858) 565-5200. 
 
If you have a loved one who suffers from Alzheimer's or any other form of dementia, you're encouraged to register for the Sheriff's Take Me Home program.
 
It is a free and confidential database only available to local law enforcement agencies. It contains photos, crucial medical information and special care instructions for people with Alzheimer's and likely to wander off or children with special needs.
 
It helps to know during a search if the patient is a non-verbal, doesn't want to be touched or would only respond to a certain name.
 
#### 
 
Sheriff's Search and Rescue (SAR) has been activated for a 75-year old woman with Alzheimer's who walked away from a campground in Julian.
 
Sally Estabrook was last seen today, October 4th, around 4:00 p.m. at the Pinezanita RV Park & Campgrounds located in the 4400 block of Highway 79. When Estabrook's husband finished taking a shower, he noticed she was gone. The Sheriff's Department was contacted just before 5:00 p.m.
 
Sally Estabrook stands 5'4" tall, weighs 145 pounds and has shoulder length blonde hair. She may be wearing a teal top and white capris pants.
 
Because Estabrook suffers from Alzheimer's, she isn't very communicative, but she might respond to her name.
 
If you see Estabrook, call 9-1-1 or the Sheriff's Department 24-hour line at (858) 565-5200.

AB 1447 Will Help Get California Moving Again
By Assemblymember Marie Waldron

Marie-Waldron-Photo.jpgAB 1447 will help get California moving, save gas and reduce pollution

For most of us, the automobile remains our only effective means of transportation. In a state as auto-dependent as ours, it makes sense to do all we can to see that traffic moves safely and efficiently, with the least environmental impact possible.

Multiple studies have shown that synchronizing traffic lights will have a huge impact on travel times and congestion. Less widely known is its effect on air pollution. Fewer cars idling at intersections will mean less pollution pouring into the atmosphere. In an effort to reduce gridlock and improve air quality, Los Angeles recently synchronized all of its traffic lights, becoming the first major city in the world to do so. Experts estimate that the new system will allow Los Angeles motorists to drive faster, consume less fuel, and save an estimated million metric tons of emissions. Accidents should also be significantly reduced.

That's why I introduced Assembly Bill 1447. The bill makes local traffic synchronization projects eligible for state funding through an existing environmental program designed to reduce pollution. No additional revenues will be needed; no taxes will be raised.  Traffic synchronization projects will simply become eligible to access funding that already exists.

AB 1447 will help get California moving again. It is an important step that protects the environment and reduces congestion in a sensible, cost-effective way. I am pleased to report that AB 1447, which passed both houses of the Legislature with wide, bi-partisan support, was signed into law by Governor Brown on September 26.

John Lallo Receives DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

JohnLallo.JPG

Sept. 26, 2014 - John Lallo, RN/Emergency Department at San Diego Healthcare System VA received the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, presented by The DAISY Foundation and UnitedHealthcare, at a special ceremony earlier this week in San Diego, Calif.  Lallo resides in Valley Center, Calif. 

Lallo received a certificate commending him for being an "Extraordinary Nurse" to his veteran patients.  The certificate reads: "In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people."  

The DAISY Foundation's unique recognition program is part of many hospitals' recruitment and retention programs, helping to offset the acute shortage of nurses nationwide. Each month, nurses are selected by their nursing administration and peers to receive the DAISY Award, established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Barnes died in 1999 at the age of 33 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura.  

An excerpt from Lallo's nomination form reads:  "John takes time out of his busy schedule to mentor, support, and educate new graduate nurses.  He helps veterans navigate the veteran's administration system properly using the chain of command, and provides a supportive shoulder to lean on.  John spent many of his days off selflessly promoting the Care and Share Silent Auction, collecting money with a coin drive, and put together 34 Care and Share silent auction baskets in an effort to feed our veterans and their families."

"Fall Fun for All Ages"
By Phyllis Knight

bates.jpg

Things are heating up at Bates Nut Farm. In fact, it was 95 degrees when I was there this afternoon checking out the action on Opening Day of Pumpkin Season, which runs through the end of October. Since school was still in session, the crowds hadn't started, yet, but based on those who were there, it's obvious Bates Pumpkin Patch isn't just for kids.

For instance, I had the pleasure of meeting Alex and Ruthie (soon-to-be) Eddington, and their dog, Arthur. This lovely, young couple were at Bates picking out pumpkins for their fall-themed wedding this weekend. The couple, who had driven up from Poway, said they had been to Bates in the past and thought it was the perfect pumpkin place! I agree, and who doesn't?

Bates employee, Tim Torlina, was on hand to, well, give them a hand in getting their pumpkins from wheel barrel, to priced and ready to be the guests of honor at this weekend's wedding. With such colorful decorations, you know it's going to be a beautiful wedding, and our congratulations and best wishes to Alex and Ruthie.  

This weekend, with cooler temperatures on the way, will find Bates Pumpkin Patch in full swing. You won't want to miss any of the fun which includes: pumpkins of all sizes, a straw maze, tractor hayrides and the farm zoo. (Please check-out their website @ www.batesnutfarm.biz for more info and pricing.)

Also, this Saturday is "Celebrating Farm Life Day" at Bates from 10 am - 4 pm. Special activities include a Harvest Talk and Tour - focusing on the history of Bates Nut Farm, as well as learning about nuts and pumpkins, two of my favorite things about fall! The kids also will enjoy the hayrides, pony rides, petting zoo, face painting and more.

So be like Alex and Ruthie this weekend and say "I do" want to join in the fun at Bates. You'd be nuts to miss it!

 

CCC Lawsuit Dismissed - Historians Find Buildings Never Used as Civilian Conservation Corps Barracks
By Trina West

VCPUSD-Sports-Field-Lawsuit.jpg

Robert Mahlowitz, legal counsel for Valley Center-Pauma Unified School District (VCPUSD), presented an update to the School Board and public at large on September 10, 2014 regarding the status of the lawsuit brought against the district in April 2013 by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) Interest Group.

The CCC Interest Group, led by President Jon Vick, accused the district of not complying with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), as well as violating the Brown Act after they demolished the buildings located on Cole Grade Road in front of the Elementary School. Mr. Mahlowitz successfully defended the district, and on September 8, 2014, the decision by the Court of Appeals to dismiss the case became final.

The Court of Appeals returned the case to the Trial Court to work out the final details, including reimbursements charged to the CCC Interest Group for hard costs incurred by the district. While some have claimed that the district would be entitled to full compensation of the roughly $79,000 spent in defending the lawsuit and appeal, Superintendent Mary Gorsuch confirmed that the maximum the district would be reimbursed is only $2,000. The remaining $77,000 spent defending the erroneous charges brought by the CCC Interest Group will not be recouped.   

Mr. Mahlowitz also stated that as part of the public comment period of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR), attorneys representing the CCC Interest Group filed two comment letters regarding the historical significance of the buildings. In response, Shelly Gunderman Castells, M.A., Registered Professional Archaeologist and Sarah Stringer-Bowsher, Registered Professional Historian, authored the Cultural and Historical Resources Survey and Evaluation Report (Appendix E of the final EIR). They researched the project site and concluded that while the buildings were constructed during that time period with funds from that federal program, they were not used as Civilian Conservation Corps barracks as the community believed.

Additionally, the historians searched for evidence that the buildings had ever been considered historically significant by any other public agency and found no such records. The authors concluded that "the Project site...does not present historically significant resources as defined by CEQA."

Following Mr. Mahlowitz's presentation, Superintendent Gorsuch presented diagrams of the proposed multiple-sports turf field measuring approximately 60 yards wide and 100 yards long. The plan calls for the maximum preservation of existing trees on the site. With the EIR complete, grading should begin shortly. Valley Center youth will soon be seen practicing and competing on their new sports field.
