Solana Beach resident to head Rotary of Del Mar

Dr. William Rawlings

Since Rawlings took office, the Del Mar Rotarians have already been visited by Joe Harper, CEO of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, and Steve Fisher, head coach for the San Diego State University men’s basketball team. Rawlings also points to the upcoming inaugural Ethics in Business Awards event in October as a highlight that will begin during his term. This new program honors local businesses that place ethics — a core Rotary value — as a main priority in their mission and commercial practices.

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.”

Public review begins for San Elijo Lagoon restoration

Dave Roberts

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.

Rant with Randi: Criminalizing parenting

Randi Crawford

In case you were wondering, it turns out you can’t parent however you want in 2014.

A 46-year-old woman was recently jailed for letting her 9-year-old daughter play in the park, unsupervised, while she was working. This story comes on the heels of the homeless woman who was arrested for leaving her kids in the car during a job interview. (Sort of ironic, since her home was her car.)

Carmel Valley residents concerned about trees removed at Torrey Pines HS

Some Carmel Valley residents have noticed that several trees have come down on the Torrey Pines High School campus. The trees have been removed for a couple of different reasons, according to Eric Dill, San Dieguito Union High School District’s associate superintendent of business services.

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.

Alvarado House still has no home

The house that used to be a home has sat forlornly for 26 years, still up on the moving blocks.

Disappointed to read about increasing enrollment at Torrey Hills School

As a Torrey Hills School parent and homeowner, we were disappointed to read about increasing enrollment at Torrey Hills School due to large apartment complexes under construction next to the school.

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.
