    San Diego’s Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) will host its year’s biggest weekend featuring its crown jewel event, the 26th annual Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge, from Oct. 18-20, at La Jolla’s scenic cove.

    Jam-packed with weekend events for every family member, a star-studded lineup of para-athletic, professional and athletic legends, and celebrities will join more than 5,000 spectators and volunteers in raising funds to empower individuals with physical challenges to succeed in sports.

    The triathlon challenge, noted as the “best day in Tri,” will showcase 200 physically challenged athletes competing with 600 able-bodied athletes through a 1-mile ocean swim, a 44-mile bike ride, and a 10-mile run.

    “The weekend, which has transcended far beyond our triathlon, celebrates how the power of sports transforms lives, builds community and changes perceptions of what people with permanent physical disabilities can accomplish,” said Virginia Tinley, CAF’s chief executive director. “Funds support CAF’s mission to provide opportunities and support to those with physical challenges so they can pursue active lifestyles through fitness and competitive athletics.

    “We, CAF, believe that involvement in sports increases self-esteem, encourages independence, and enhances one’s quality of life, and the San Diego Triathlon Challenge is every athlete’s chance to prove it,” she continued.

    The weekend’s nonstop sporting events and entertainment starts with a Friday meet-and-greet celebration including CAF’s Celebration of Abilities Awards Dinner with awards presented to “CAF athletes and supporters who have demonstrated extraordinary amounts of strength, resilience, and commitment.”

    Friday and Saturday events will include adaptive sports clinics the likes of open water swims, running and mobility clinics and wheelchair sports training.

    Sunday’s triathlon will kick off with the national anthem sung by Samuel Nehemiah. All-day events include San Diego’s YMCA Tour de Cove stationary cycle-thon “Rocket Into Orbit.” More than 100 stationary cycle bikes will line the cove’s great lawn with YMCA instructors leading a 4 1/2-hour stationary bike tour.

    Challenged athletes, “each with an incredible story to tell,” will also share the stage with instructors and cyclists in this “sweat-drenching workout.”

    “Through the YMCA of San Diego County partnership – YMCA has provided over 1,000 memberships to San Diego’s CAF grant recipients to pursue their fitness goals – we’ve made a positive difference in the lives of challenged athletes,” said Tinley. “The membership grant program has helped San Diego’s physically challenged population get active for the first time along with those who wished to increase their fitness and athletic levels.

    “The athletes love the facilities and resources, but more importantly, they feel welcomed and cared for by the staff,” said Baron Herdelin-Doherty, president and CEO of the YMCA of San Diego County. “Belonging to the Y means these athletes have a safe and encouraging environment. We are proud to partner with CAF and admire the elite athletes.”

    “The Tour de Cove is the perfect celebration of our long-standing partnership,” continued Tinley.

    Katie B Happyy will lead Kaiser Permanente’s Thrive Yoga by the Sea, a 90-minute outdoor yoga class that takes place on the La Jolla coastline.

    “Take this opportunity to find your Zen, inspire a new audience to thrive, and connect with CAF,” said Tinley.

    New for 2019, CAF will introduce the American Ninja Warrior Challenge, where athletes of all abilities can put their ninja skills to the test.”

    Sunday’s all-day events also include the Philadelphia Insurance Challenged Athlete Kids Run, the CAF store, a silent auction, a family fun zone and a Paul Mitchell Cut-a-thon.

    Since 1994, CAF has raised more than $112 million to support 26,000 physically challenged athletes worldwide. Another 60,000 individuals are impacted every year through CAF’s outreach programs.

    Dedicated to awarding physically challenged athletes a level of respect equal to able-bodied athletes, CAF impacts millions living with physical challenges by providing access to adaptive sports equipment, training, and programming – including mentorship and competition and travel expenses.

    “We emphasize community and mentorship so individuals with physical challenges can connect and learn from one another,” said Tinley.

    CAF supports “athletes at every level and ability” including those dealing with spinal cord injuries, limb loss, cerebral palsy as well as cancer survivors and the visually impaired. Twenty-nine percent of grants fund athletes under 18 years of age.

    “We strive to reach challenged athletes at a young age to ensure they have access to a full, active life,” said Tinley.

    Sponsors of the weekend’s events include: Aspen Medical Products, Össur, Nike, Converse, YMCA of San Diego County, XTERRA Wetsuits, Ashworth Awards, Philadelphia Insurance Companies, Lusardi Construction, VitalFitSR, LAZ Parking, Kaiser Permanente, Accenture, Sycuan Resort Casino, Toyota, Union Bank, Headsweats, Life Time Fitness, Zappos Adaptive, Watkins Wellness, Smoothie King, Wells Fargo Advisors and performance nutrition partners CLIF Bar and GU.

    Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. i read people's testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Ojoka herbal medicine, so i decided to contact the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal anything.

    La Jolla’s Redwood Hollow Cottages, a place where time stands still

    In between newer and more modern buildings and structures in La Jolla, there’s still a bit of charm and whimsy to be found at 256 Prospect St.

    Located here and within the village on this lush property is Redwood Hollow Cottages aka Prospect View. These quaint dwellings have been part of the local scenery for decades and continue to intrigue visitors from far and wide with their rich history.

    Redwood Hollow's site was first developed by Walter Scott Lieber circa 1915 and was named Prospect View. At the time there were “wide ocean views from this area since all the surrounding lots were vacant,” the property website states.

    At one point, Lieber had a number of these cottage courts around La Jolla used for daily, weekly, and monthly rentals. However, in later years, they were all demolished for large-scale condominiums except for Redwood Hollow. The property now consists of two contiguous parcels linked together in 1998, and again according to the property’s website, “Redwood Hollow is about 400 yards from ‘Whispering Sands Beach.’”

    Although nestled in a serene residential neighborhood, the property is only about 4 miles from shops, parks, art galleries, and restaurants.

    Today the cottages serve as vacation rentals and some are private residences; some of the cottages include a full kitchen, queen-sized or king-sized bed in the bedroom(s) and a sleep sofa in the living or sitting area. The 12 units range from studios to three-bedroom, two-bath cottages. Some units have fireplaces, and others are lined with redwood or cedar.

    The architecture is considered a Craftsman and mountain-style cottage, which was popular at Southern California beach resorts early in the 20th century. Since 2013, the property has been managed by Capital Asset Management Co., which in recent years conducted various renovations including new restrooms, floors, ceilings, and walls.

    LANDMARK

    Redwood Hollow Cottages is not only a popular place to vacation. It was registered as San Diego Historic Site No. 347 in 1997. Below is an excerpt from the historical nomination report written and prepared by historical consultant Alexander D. Bevil in 1997.

    This is a cluster of five small, rustic, 1 to 2-story Craftsman and Ranch style bungalow cottages. Arranged around a central garden court, they are linked physically and visually by a meandering red brick walkway. Several of the bungalow cottages share common garden and patio areas, which adds to the property's communal sense of place.”

    Bevil added in the historical analysis of the property: Although built between 1915 and 1951, and even though they went through many remodels over the years, “they still share similar form, type, style, materials, methods of construction, and use.”

    Some of the remodels at the time of his report included, “the use of similar roof styles and shingles, exterior split-redwood shingle, board-and-batten, and clapboard wall cladding, and recessed porch and multi-light window treatments.” 

    Additionally, he wrote: “The buildings' uniform scale and layout, plus the use of red brick planters and mature plant material, link the entire site together into a unified whole.

    The report further confirms the cottages were associated with “noted La Jolla real estate developer and philanthropist Walter R. Lieber, and it is one of at least 30 similar bungalow cottage rentals he developed between 1904 and 1945 …

    While first developed by Lieber ca. 1915 as Prospect View, subsequent owners continued to develop it into a bungalow cottage garden court by retaining the use of similar style, type, and building materials. Grouped as parts of a whole, each building contributes to the property's overall sense of scale, feeling, and place,” Bevil wrote. 

    The feeling can apparently still be felt as is.

    People from all over the world come and stay at Redwood; they’re all different themes, and the interior design is the creative genius of Mariela DeStout, operations director for CAM. Popularity varies and there isn’t one that is more popular than the others,” according to Sheridan Cucurillo, property manager at Redwood Hollow Cottages. 

    And even though improvements have been made “aesthetically and mechanically, it is still the same in most ways,” she added. “The property is whimsical, magical and peaceful; one of the most beautiful places to come and rest and relax.”

    Throughout the years, Redwood Hollow Cottages has not only been a place for vacationers but also a location visited by famous surfers, artisans, writers, and other professionals. 

    It looks like time continues to stand still at 256 Prospect St., La Jolla — much to many people’s delight.

    In the mid 1970s these cottages were rental apartments owned by the Barrymore Family who lived on Coast Walk. Mr. Barrymore owned a fleet of classic cars that often transported folks for the LJ Historical Society annual historical site tours. The cottages were occupied a medley of individuals from aesthetes to artists to everday "weird" folks who just liked the place. My friend, Ted Stauch, managed the place for Mr. Barrymore and moved from a small studio to the small single cottage at the far west. he planted many of the flowers and shrubs during his time there. Eventually he lived in the ground floor of the house to the south which became part of the complex.Ted worked at the Mithras Bookstore (look it up)/Unicorn Cinema at LJ Blvd and Pearl St and for the Green Tiger Press. Those 1970s-1980s were an amazing time at this complex and in LJ. One cottage was rented by Melaine Christiansen who owned and operated BookWorks in Del Mar. Both Ted and Melaine have passed but there spirit and those of others inhabit Redwood Hollow.

    Oh my goodness, I remember these cottages! I lived just around the corner, on South Coast Boulevard, from 1967-1970, and I remember cutting through the property on my way to school. I also remember the Mithras Bookstore and the Unicorn Cinema, which to my young teen self seemed just the epitome of cool. The apartment I lived in was part of a modest two-story building with nine units, built, I believe, in the 1930s or 1940s. It was torn down a few years ago. and it seems to me that with its sad demise, that entire era passed from view.

    Kitten Lady gets personal rescuing at-risk kittens in San Diego

    Two book releases in the last month, an appearance on Animal Planet, and two advocacy awards show not only how quickly Hannah Shaw has been able to make a name for herself in the public eye, but also the ripple effect of her high-energy and hands-on approach regarding kitten advocacy, rescue and education. “This has all happened much to my surprise and delight,” said Shaw, founder of the nonprofit Orphan Kitten Club, which provides lifesaving operations and the world’s first grant program specifically funding innovation in kitten welfare. “When people realize that these babies are all unique and so worthy of protection, I think that it gets a lot of people to go out and sign up to foster in their own communities.” Nicknamed the “Kitten Lady,” Shaw provides educational media and training resources on her website and social media, as well as instructional workshops, all to help individuals and animal shelters learn how to save the lives of kittens. “I wanted to create a fun community where people could see up close and personal what it looks like to rescue kittens, and also help people to feel like they know the individual animal,” said Shaw, who tries to share all the intimate moments she has with her rescued kittens, from helping them through a disease to helping them hit their first steps, making them hats or even writing songs about the kittens. “It hopefully helps with finding adopters and encouraging more fostering,” Working closely with the San Diego Humane Society, East County Animal Rescue and Love Your Feral Felines, Shaw has helped to rescue dozens of kittens (and two neonatal piglets) since moving from Washington to San Diego, including Flapjack, a malnourished orange tabby who was covered in fleas when Shaw and her team found him in Spring Valley. “Hannah has done a great deal for kittens all across the world through her humane education program, and now that Hannah is local to San Diego, we are proud to have her Orphan Kitten Club as a rescue partner,” said Jackie Noble, nursery manager at San Diego Humane Society. “Not only does OKC care for these kittens at their in-home Kitten Nursery, they also help out our community through their Full Circle TNR (trap-neuter-return) program. Talk about the ‘purr-fect’ partnership!” Though his brother didn’t survive, Flapjack regained his health and was the inspiration for Shaw’s new Full Circle Program, where Shaw and her nonprofit team go out and sterilize the family, or colony, of the kitten they rescue. “When we picked him up, we saw just how many cats there were in just his colony living as strays,” said Shaw. “These cats are coming into shelters at the rate that they are because there’s so many community cats outside. There’s no harsh winters in San Diego, so it’s kitten season year-round here.” Orphan Kitten Club also takes on cases where the kitten’s condition is more challenging, perhaps too challenging for the average shelter, such as their most recent addition to Shaw kitty nursery, the tuxedo kitten named Apple. Apple was born with Swimmer Syndrome so her hind legs spread out like a frog’s, inhibiting her from walking. For the next few weeks, Shaw will be wrapping and taping Apple’s legs so they can grow in a normal posture. “A lot of kittens like her are euthanized because she can’t walk, but with us she will get to live a normal life,” said Shaw. “We work with the kittens that no one else will.” Shaw is also a New York Times bestselling author, with her educational book on the U.S. kitten crisis “Tiny But Mighty.” Shaw also has an upcoming children’s book, “Kitten Lady’s Big Book of Little Kittens,” which releases Tuesday, Oct. 8. The book takes children through the life of foster kittens. Both books can be found at Barnes & Noble or on Shaw’s website, kittenlady.org. “It’s all a lot more personal for me now,” said Shaw, who had been an activist for many years but never planned on getting this hands-on with the work. “It’s not just theoretical. It’s not just data. You’re not just trying to convince people something matters because you read a statistic,” she said. You’re literally looking at a little life in the palm of your hand and knowing that there are so many other little lives like that who are out there in need of love and support and care. “That’s why, whenever I teach, I teach using stories. It’s not a theory, it’s a real kitten that you can hold and see and feel and that needs your help.” To apply to adopt any of Shaw’s rescues, visit orphankittenclub.org.

    Several local surfers and shapers were among legends of the sport who were inducted Aug. 13 into San Diego's Surfing Hall of Fame at a ceremony at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. The event was hailed by its organizers as “the greatest gathering of surf legends San Diego has ever seen.” Among the inaugural list of surfing hall of famers: • Skip Frye (from Pacific Beach known for his pro surf career and iconic boards.) • Mike Hynson (from Pacific Beach who costarred in the 1966 hit "The Endless Summer" and surfboard design guru.) • Butch Van Artsdalen (from La Jolla, a pioneering surfer who took on 25-foot waves in Hawaii to garner the title "Mr. Pipeline.") • Tom Ortner (La Jolla resident and an icon in the Windansea beach community.) • Carl Ekstrom (from La Jolla, developed the first asymmetrical boards in the late 1960s.) • Larry Gordon (a fixture in the board making community from the 1960s until his death in 2016.) • John Holly (veteran Ocean Beach surfer and board shaper.) • Chuck Hasley (founder of the Windansea Surf Club of La Jolla.) • Windansea Surf Club (legendary surf club known for boasting some of the best-known surfing names.) Surfboard craftsman Hank Warner, a legend in his own right, was the event’s master of ceremonies. “It was a big event, Belly Up was packed,” said Warner adding, “Ninety-nine percent of surfers grew up idolizing these inductees in the San Diego Surfing Hall of Fame.” Attendees enjoyed live music from Jimmy Lewis, live art from Wade Koniakowsky, and a special collaboration between Warner and surf filmmaker Ira Opper.  "These innovators and pioneers have emerged everywhere that waves break. In this regard, San Diego has been particularly blessed," organizers wrote. "Our 70 miles of coastline have produced some of the most innovative shapers and wave stylists in the sport. And as everyone paddling out to the lineup knows, you have to honor those who have come before us." Warner discussed his long-term goals for the San Diego Hall of Fame. “We’re going to be doing this yearly,” he said. “We have a list of about 100 people we’ll be choosing from.” Warner pointed out the inaugural list of legends are “influential surfers so it was pretty much bulletproof (selecting) for the first year.” Warner said the objective is for the San Diego Hall of Fame to be nonprofit and truly representative of the surfing community. “It’s an amazing group,” he noted. “It’s not just surfers. It’s shapers. It’s artists. It’s photographers, the whole gamut. It’s really honoring all the elite surfers who have come before us.” Discussing the policy of a future brick-and-mortar San Diego Hall of Fame site, Warner envisions inductees “donating boards, photos, wetsuits, etc., priceless heirlooms to the museum/hall of fame.”

    There is A cure for Herpes virus

    I was tested Herpes positive in 2018 which I have been searching for cure from different doctor until I came across a testimony of Gabby Gabriel on a blogger who said she was cured from 2 years Genital Herpes with Herbal medicine and she included the doctors email which name is doctor Ahmed Usman, I contacted him and he replied and after much discussion he sent his Herbal medicine to me which I took for 21 days with his prescription. I discovered that I no longer have frequent fever and headaches and the sores on my genital parts were healed, after concluding the Herbal medication I went for test and my PCR DNA result was Negative, there was no trace of the virus on my blood thanks to doctor Ahmed for his cure. Contact him on drahmedusman5104@gmail.com, I recommend him for Herpes or any diseases. He has Herbal cure for the following diseases; Heart Diseases, Cancer, Fibroid, HIV, Autism and Typhoid
