A new year and new president for the Rotary Club of Del Mar

Dr. William Rawlings

The first of July marked the beginning of a new year for the Rotary Club of Del Mar and with it brings new President, Dr. William Rawlings. Bill is off to a roaring start with exciting guest speakers, new goals for the members and a passion for serving others.

Bill has been a Solana Beach resident with his wife, Mary, since 1982. He is a Specialist in Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry and has been in the Rotary Club of Del Mar since 1996. Over the years, his contributions to the club have focused on community service, planning and executing club fundraiser events and international service projects. He counts his most memorable moment as a Rotarian to the trip he took last year to Cambodia to perform dentistry. He says he gained perspective while working there and “understanding the tremendous need for medical and dental care in the Third World.”

Coastal lagoons provide one of North County’s most defining natural features. And in our increasingly urbanized environment, the relief and respite we gain from these valuable wetlands is more important than ever.

In past decades, we have mistreated our lagoons. But that has changed. Coastal wetlands are getting the protection they deserve. In fact, wetlands are so important that some of them have received multimillion-dollar restorations to improve their ecology.

Increasing speed limit on Ocean Air Drive will not solve anything

In response to last week’s letter to the editor titled “Disappointed to read about increasing enrollment at TH school” regarding increasing class sizes at Torrey Hills Elementary school, I couldn’t agree more. My daughter is beginning kindergarten this fall and part of the reason we chose to buy our home in Carmel Valley is due to the stellar public schools. Anything that could potentially erode her receiving the best public education possible, is a negative in our book.

Kelp? Help!

Residents and visitors alike can’t help but notice the bumper crop of kelp on Del Mar’s beaches this summer. Even kids, who are usually endlessly amused by the piles of brown, brackish stuff, are steering clear.

Financing tools for water, energy conservation

By Supervisor Dave Roberts The Golden State is rapidly turning brown, thanks to three back-to-back dry years.
