That, says Jill Duoto, is what you’ll find at High Bluff Academy, a fully accredited high school housed in the center of an office park in Carmel Valley.

When Carmel Valley triathlete Andi Neugarten isn’t pouring everything she has into training to endure grueling Ironman and half-Ironman distance races, she is putting “blood, sweat and tears” into her company Alii Lifestyle, a line of feminine and fashionable athletic wear.
Her gear is sold online and in 40 stores across the country, including locally at Her Revolution in Solana Beach and Nitro in Encinitas. A percentage of the sales goes to support the Challenged Athletes Foundation, a cause close to Neugarten’s heart.
The Del Mar Union School District is considering a proposed boundary change for future East Pacific Highlands Ranch homes. The recommendation made by the facilities master plan outreach committee is that the boundary be changed for six Pacific Highlands Ranch developments, moving students from Sycamore Ridge to Ashley Falls School.
Jason Romero, assistant superintendent of human resources, said the developments represent 570 single and multifamily homes, which they project to generate around 250 students.
The 5-year-old Fed Biz took his rivals wire-to-wire in the Grade II $200,000 San Diego Handicap on Saturday at Del Mar, scoring by 5 1/4 lengths.

After attending the inaugural La Colonia de Eden Gardens Youth Leadership Camp last year, Edgar Vergara was inspired to make positive change in Solana Beach’s Eden Gardens community.

Passionate about making an impact on his hometown, Edgar jumped at the chance to return to the camp this year as a youth leader.

A new trail running race is coming to Carmel Valley this fall.
Jeff Stoner of Del Mar’s Seasick Marketing visited the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board to update the board on the plans for the Carmel Valley Trail 5K and 10K Run, set to take place on Sept. 20. A portion of race proceeds will go toward the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
“Del Mar is deeply saddened by the loss of Thoroughbred lives we have experienced at the track since the start of our season. Four of those losses have come on our new turf course. Despite that, we continue to have the utmost confidence in the course, as do our partners in this race meet — the Thoroughbred Owners of California, the California Thoroughbred Trainers, the Jockeys’ Guild and the California Horse Racing Board – all of whom have expressed that confidence to us today.
The 45-minute program will include music by Debussy, Schubert, and Dvorak.
