By Julie Sarno

Pam and Marty Wygod were involved in Thoroughbred racing long before they took up residence in Rancho Santa Fe in 1994.

It all started with a gift from a friend and business partner.

“In 1963, Fletcher Jones gave me two racehorses as a present,” said Marty, adding with a chuckle, “Unfortunately, they won.”

Pam recalled their decision to come to the San Diego area: “We thought ‘Someday this is where we’d like to live’ and someday came along. It’s a wonderful area to raise a young family.”

‘Just a little radiation’?

Dear neighbors,

Please voice your opinion on cell phone antennae sites right next to residential homes. We received a notice of permit for an intended Clearwire cell antennae on top of the Solana Beach Medical Building at 550 Lomas Santa Fe Drive. The study results presented as “acceptable levels of radiation” are dated 1986. These devices have changed since then! They do more now with new technology and require more bandwidth and power. The variables here are unlimited, and with new 3G and even 4G technology and power bands being utilized, the only question I would ask the property owner and cell phone company is, “You OK if I hang one in your backyard?”
