    slideshow
    Waterfront Park, a patch of green sandwiched between city and harbor, is lined with palm trees and fountains. On Saturday, Aug. 19, it will also be packed with yoga students. By last year’s estimate, more than 600 people will crowd the park for the sixth annual Charity Yoga Event, spreading out mats and stretching their limbs under the directions of distinguished yoga instructors. Live music is provided by local group Dub Sutra, and afterwards the event will host an extensive wine and beer garden, with vendors such as Kashi, Indo-Love, Suja Juice and Mush. The Charity Yoga Event is organized and run by Kim Bauman, Pacific Beach resident and founder of the One Love Movement. Bauman was adopted at a young age from a South Korean orphanage. As a young adult in America, she sometimes felt directionless. Though she did frequent charity work, it took her a long time to find what she was truly passionate about. Bauman’s life was changed when she won a charity contest in 2011. The contest challenged its participants to raise as much as they could for disaster relief in Haiti. Bauman, having collected $21,000 over a period of six months, was offered a trip to the country, where she would have a chance to work on the ground with the refugees, seeing the money she’d raised put to use. It was while working at a Haitian orphanage that she had a revelation. “I realized how blessed I was for being adopted,” Bauman said. “These kids would never get the life I had.” Bauman had found a new direction. That year she launched the first annual Charity Yoga Event, with the goal of raising awareness for underserved children across the globe. Initially, the charity focused its efforts on groups native to San Diego – organizations like the Monarch School, San Diego Youth Services, and Outdoor Outreach, which work to provide education and foster care for at-risk youth. Though the foundation continues to donate to these organizations, it has since broadened its horizons. To date, the One Love Foundation has raised more than $150,000, $50,000 of which has gone to countries outside the U.S., such as Tanzania, Haiti, Uganda and the U.K. In 2015, the foundation purchased a children’s shelter in India. Today, the shelter houses 19 children, and Bauman flies out twice a year to visit. Though the Charity Yoga Event is the group’s largest fundraiser, they hold smaller events throughout the year. In 2016, they held a benefit concert at city hall, and offered outdoor yoga classes at Tower 23. Bauman also keeps a list of future projects; ways in which the foundation hopes to extend its outreach. One is the expansion of the Charity Yoga Event to cover other cities across the U.S. Another is what she refers to as the Prison Project; though as-of-yet undefined, it will be centered around providing service and creating projects for both the incarcerated and the recently released. In the very long-term, Bauman hopes to someday find the orphanage she was adopted from, and launch a One Love project to help the children still living there. In the meantime, the Charity Yoga Event is more than enough to work with. “Every year this event brings together the people that enjoy the spirit of yoga both on and off the mat by practicing kindness and compassion,” she said. “It’s a beautiful thing to see so many people share a common goal in helping others.” Charity Yoga Event Where: Embarcadero Waterfront Park When: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19 Tickets: $27.

    City selling old reservoir near Kate Sessions Park, housing development planned

    Some Pacific Beach residents near Kate Sessions Park are upset about the city's plans to sell the old reservoir. The approximately 4.76-acre reservoir site in north PB, is one of the beach community's last remaining developable open spaces offering views to the west.  The property is expected to bring a bid between "$5 million and $10 million” and could be developed into as many as a dozen houses. The city is expected take out the cement reservoir tank, fill it in, and level the area. Property owners nearby have houses currently valued in the $1.5 to $3 million range. One of those neighbors is Lt. Col. David Mulcahy, USMC (Ret) and his wife, Carol. Mulcahy recently dashed off a letter to 2nd District Councilmember Lorie Zapf, arguing the reservoir project has not been properly noticed. “I am baffled by the total absence of any reporting (on the reservoir project) that has not been publicized, or brought to the attention of our neighborhood,” Mulcahy said referencing steps required to remove the Pacific Beach Reservoir tank on Los Altos Road. “Residents surrounding the reservoir have been expecting, literally for years, that this would occur. Many of us have been in touch over the years with various city administration leaders who have consistently assured us that there were no plans to sell the reservoir property.” Mulcahy added neighbors only became aware of the city’s decision to sell the reservoir property last week when a “For Sale” sign was posted at the reservoir.  Another Kate Sessions Park neighbor, Debbie Kostas, expressed other “transparency” concerns about the city project. “The reservoir was dedicated to the community many years ago,” Kostas said. “All of a sudden, the property is for sale in a single-family residential community.” Fellow neighbor Michael Wagner said residents near Kate Sessions are discussing taking action. “I heard the neighbors are going to have an informal meeting over what can be done,” Wagner said. “At one time, I heard the city would make it into a park. But I guess the city needs money to pay for road improvement (yeah, right).” In promotional materials, project developers are characterizing the reservoir project, named Los Altos Summit, as “A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire an irreplaceable development site in a highly-sought-after residential neighborhood with abundant employment.” It was pointed out by developers that, within one mile of Los Altos Summit, the median home price and per capita income is roughly 70 percent higher than the county average. The median home value in this area was $875,500 in 2016 and is expected to reach nearly $900,000 in 2021.

    This is public land. Should it remain for public use?

    Yes, this public land should be made into a public park.

    To sell this land would be the equivalent of stealing many millions of dollars from the people.

    Last Sunday, Fiesta Island celebrated Southern California’s minis – miniature horses that is! So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary held a beach day breakfast and afternoon barbecue while spotlighting their function as the world’s largest mini horse rescue/sanctuary. Founders Jeanne and Carlos Candelario showcased the equine play day surrounded by minis splashing, jumping and munching on an abundance of hay and treats. The annual event, now in its fourth year, recruited everyone “to see who we are.” “We celebrated the opportunity to gather like-minded owners to meet while introducing ourselves to those who don’t know who we are or what we do,” said Jeanne Candelario. The So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary is instrumental in the care, welfare and lifesaving of miniature horses. The nonprofit organization uses 100 percent of its donations for the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of neglected, abused and abandoned miniature horses. Candelario works “tirelessly” to inform the public on the plight of mini horses because “people do bad things to mini horses. “Caring for a mini is a full-time responsibility not to be taken lightly,” she said. “Minis are not cute dogs. They’re equines. Overbred by backyard breeders, they’re often abused and abandoned.” The So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary was born serendipitously. Severely injured by a riding accident, “so much so that I thought I’d never ride again,” Candelario purchased a mini, “because I couldn’t give up my love for horses.” Rescuing minis “became a necessity” after realizing the extent of neglect and abuse these animals endured due to a lack of understanding how to properly care for them. Candelario said that minis are often given as presents – grandparents to their grandchildren – but their novelty quickly wanes. “Similar to Easter bunnies, minis are cute at first, then neglected, abused or taken to auction and dumped for money,” she said. “We happily rescue the malnourished and abandoned from questionable fates. Minis enter our sanctuary emaciated, abused and neglected, no doubt on their way to a merciless end. We even cross state lines, literally saving some from death’s door.” The sanctuary began as a private family venture a decade ago because “what better way to teach my boys compassion” while noting that nothing of its kind existed. Minis were rescued from public auctions and selected from “sad” Craigslist ads. Local auctions are noted as the first stop for minis destined for a “darker and crueler” outcome. “Loving minis in need has made us who we are,” she continued. “We rescue minis in terrible conditions at auctions and work as a family to nourish, rehabilitate, love and adopt them out.” Upon their arrival, minis are confused, cognizant of little more than neglect and abuse. Horses purchased from auctions are usually emaciated. Healing with meds and nourishment is only a part of the process. Providing emotional stability is key. “Changing a mini’s state of mind from fear to safety is 90 percent of our care,” continued Candelario. “Within a short period of time our animals understand that they’re in a safe space. They see other horses playing, having fun, and talking to each other.” Noted for excellence in animal husbandry, the Candelario clan – including their three adopted boys – devote every day to caring for minis. Socializing the once terrified horses is imperative. Terrified minis are not adoptable. “Horses, thrown away by those who were supposed to care for them, appear at our gates afraid and untrustworthy,” she said. “We devote time, patience and tender-loving-care in teaching the horses to trust. Through love and nourishment, we heal their mental, physical and emotional health. “My autistic son sits for hours, singing, reading or talking to these animals. Depending upon the animal’s level of abuse, transition can take weeks. Horses make tremendous progress in our care and we work to find them wonderful, forever homes.” Adoptive families are vetted. Because horses are herd animals, horseless homes are required to be adopt in pairs. Bonded horses are also adopted together. Home checks are conducted. “The majority of our minis were left alone for years, never touched, played or properly cared for,” Candelario added. “We refuse to repeat the situation they were rescued from. People don’t spend enormous amounts of time with their horses. Of course, we do, but most feed their minis and move on with their day. We make sure our horses are forever with a buddy. Those who don’t understand, don’t get a horse.” Candelario stressed that although highly intelligent and trainable, minis function as pets or cart animals only. Minis are not ponies, therefore not rideable. Many of So Cal’s mini rescues have knees and legs “blown out” because they’ve been ridden. Horses are “fixed” upon arrival. Pregnant mares are cared for through their pregnancies and healthy babies are given up for adoption. Noting the aid of charitable communities and volunteer “Rescue Angels,” the organization strives to provide safety and care to those rescued and reward them with long, loving lives. “Our network of rescue angels raises funds and pool resources to save as many minis as possible,” she said. “We work with these horses too begin life anew, replacing fear and neglect with love and trust.” Located in Hemet, the five-acre, “extremely clean” facility was verified by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) in 2016 for meeting the criteria as a top-level, accredited equine sanctuary/rescue. The GFAS is also a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting worldwide animal sanctuaries, rescues, and rehabilitation centers for animals including horses, lions, tigers, bears and elephants. Daryl Tropea, GFAS’s director of accreditation, issued this statement: “The So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary has shown impressive accomplishments. The GFAS site inspector noted the organization’s excellent husbandry practices and innovative solutions for caring for these smaller equines, often forgotten in this large-equine oriented world. “So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary has adopted great enrichment and socializing practices, certainly enhancing their suitability for adoption. Verification provides a clear and trusted means for the public, donors and grantors to recognize So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary as an exceptional organization.” "We’re proud to be part of a world-wide organization dedicated to the care of animals,” continued Candelario. “We hit platinum with this prestigious certification that inspires us to strive even further to provide the best quality of life for the mini horses in our care."  “Every year, the So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary invites the equine community to meet at Fiesta Island to enjoy swimming with the horses,” said Michelle Motyl of MM Training/San Diego Hunter Jumpers. “We’re grateful for the rescue efforts of these precious minis. We’re thrilled to be a part of the day with Jeanne and team of Rescue Angels!” According to Candelario, miniature horses were bred by the Spaniards 600 years ago. “Royal families bred horses down to size to gift as pets to their children,” she said. “Minis were bred to become smaller, similar to today’s breeding of teacup dogs.” In 1650, King Louis XIV's Palace of Versailles kept the minis as part of his menagerie of unusual animals. Accounts also note that during 17th century, the minis were bred as pets for European Habsburg nobility. To date, the So Cal Mini Sanctuary has rescued more than 100 minis. Invited to attend the 2017 Tournament of Roses Parade, they continue to extend themselves to become a bigger part of community adventures. “Our minis are well prepared for an exciting world,” she said. “We regularly attend holiday parades, community functions, pet adoptions and local equestrian events.” Citing passion and local activism, the So Cal Mini Horse Sanctuary will continue to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home. Stating that “I won’t be here forever,” Candelario is determined to educate others, publicizing, “the more who know, the more who can help.” “We hope to infuse everyone with a strong equine addiction to consider adopting or sponsoring one of our loving horses, or donating to our efforts for caring for them,” concluded Candelario.

    The amount of time, energy and money that this wonderful family spends rescuing and taking care of these little lives is just amazing. I am fortunate to be a volunteer and get to watch Jeanne, Carlos and their children turn terrified, emaciated, sometimes hurt minis into sweet, curious and trusting animals. The world needs more people like the Candalarios.

    The Paul Mitchell Neon Supergirl Pro QS6,000 caped Courtney Conlogue (Santa Ana) its winner after a marathon finals day at the Oceanside Pier. This marks Conlogue’s second Supergirl Pro victory, her first since 2009, after a hard-fought battle with fellow Championship Tour (CT) and Californian Sage Erickson (Ojai). The final was an absolute battle as Erickson came out firing on her backhand with a 7.83 (out of a possible 10) and quickly backed it up on her forehand — earning a 4.66. But, Conlogue responded with a 6.83 of her own before pulling the event’s highest single-scoring wave on an incredible, single-maneuver and earning a near-perfect 9.77. The current CT No. 5 showcased her innovative and progressive skill with the massive air-reverse she spun out of in the whitewater. Conlogue and Erickson have been hoping to face each other in a final this year, each saying the other inspires them to perform at their best. Erickson took her support of her final opponent literally, as she helped carry Conlogue in her victory “chair up” from the surf. “After being the runner-up a few times, I’m definitely stoked to get the cape back,” Conlogue said following her win. “The opportunity to surf against Sage in the final was a big highlight of this event. I haven’t been able to compete against her in a final in a long time and every time we surf against each other, she brings out the best of me. I just know it’s always going to be a fun heat and she always lays it down, so when she opened with that seven, I just knew it was going to be one of those heats. It was a great way to end this event.” “I hold this contest high up on my priority list to do well, I feel a sense of comfort here and responsibility to perform well for all my friends and family,” Erickson said. “It was a dream to be in a final with Courtney again, especially here in California. We have so many memories together and we’re at a point where we love and encourage each other, but I still wanted to beat her.” Erickson went on a tear through finals day taking down Australian Holly Wawn (AUS) in Round Six before eliminating defending Supergirl Pro winner Coco Ho (HAW) in the quarters and 15-year-old phenom Caroline Marks (USA) in the semifinals. Her dominating backhand attack was on display throughout the day that helped propel her to a finals appearance. Falling shy of her third Supergirl Pro title didn’t hinder the Ventura, California surfer’s spirits as she now sits at No. 1 on the QS rankings. Marks’ Supergirl Pro dream run was ended by Erickson in the semi-finals, but she walked away with vital experience and 3,550 points. 2015 Supergirl Pro winner Tatiana Weston-Webb (HAW) unleashed her backhand once more en route to a semifinal finish — falling to eventual winner Conlogue. But, a huge bonus for Weston-Webb and Erickson was walking away with a brand new Nissan Rogue Sport and a $5,000 donation to charity for standing out as Supergirls — based on a combination of competition results and social media outreach.  The program results came down to a tie between the two surfers, which was decided by a coin-flip that Weston-Webb won.  To show their support for the surfers and the event, Nissan doubled down and presented Erickson with a car of her own. “Nissan is excited to be the official automotive sponsor of the Neon Supergirl Pro, as well as presenter of the ‘Super Sport Award,’” said Jason Stoicevich, Nissan regional vice president, who announced the winners on stage during the awards ceremony. “It was inspiring to see so many female athletes come together and support one another throughout the competition. Nissan is looking forward to building upon these key relationships in the lifestyle sports community.” “It’s such an amazing thing for Nissan to do for women’s surfing, showing that they really believe in us,” Weston-Webb added. “It’s really awesome to be a part of this inspirational event with such an incredible prize.” “This weekend is all about female empowerment,” said Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment, the event’s producer. “The Supergirl Pro was created with the mission of providing opportunities for young women in areas where they are traditionally under-represented. It’s incredibly heartening to see all the young women that come out to watch these phenomenal athletes compete and find inspiration for their own dreams.” Beyond the surf competition, the free event also featured live concerts on the Supergirl Pro Entertainment Stage by Bea Miller, Drake Bell, Skylar Stecker, Aaron Carter, Spencer Sutherland and 15 more artists; the inaugural Supergirl Gamer Pro – the only female-driven multi-title esports tournament in the U.S.; meet-and-greets with top pros; a Celebrity Surf Invitational; and so much more.
