Vista Chamber President & CEO Rachel Beld

Do you work at the Strawberry Festival, yet?

This is the question my son excitedly asked me every day during the month of February. To my son, the Vista Chamber of Commerce is all about the Strawberry Festival and at only five years old, he is pretty wise. The Strawberry Festival is a huge part of what makes the Chamber and Vista great; but, producing first-class events is only one small component of the work that attracted me to the organization. I come from a large family of small business owners and I am excited about the opportunity to support local businesses and work with the City and other governmental agencies to further economic development opportunities for the Vista community. And as a first generation college graduate, partnering with local schools to encourage students and connect them with opportunities, such as the Rising Stars recognition program, also speaks to my heart. And, I am excited to champion all the things that makes Vista great. Whether we are dining or shopping, catching a movie in Vista Village or a musical under the stars, cheering at the Vista Sports Park or choosing our favorite new Kites

Over Vista sculpture, snuggling cats or sampling beer, my family and I enjoy all the wonderful things Vista has to offer. While working in local government over the past twenty years (fourteen of those in Vista) I had an opportunity to work on a number of initiatives including Economic Development programs such as the Vista CARE Business Walk which supports local businesses. I helped to market City programs including the Wave, the Moonlight, the Civic Gallery and other recreational opportunities and to shepherd public art projects such as Prima Vista, the round-about sculpture. I supported many events including Vistans R.O.C., 4th of July Celebration, the Taste of Vista, and the Strawberry

Festival. But, what I enjoyed the very most about working in local government was the opportunity to connect with people and to work collaboratively to solve problems and improve our community. I am incredibly grateful for the chance to return to Vista in this new role and

to collaborate with so many wonderful people. Thank you Vista, for the warm welcome as I step into some very large shoes. I could not be happier to join the Chamber and now, it is time to roll up my sleeves and get to work – at the Strawberry Festival! See you there!

... I am excited to champion all the things that makes Vista great...

Former CEO Bret Schanzenbach welcomes Rachel Beld to the Vista Chamber of Commerce.



Purr-fection & Percolation

at North County’s First Cat Cafe By Sherrin Guy



“ We knew we’d automatically attract cat lovers,

but by having a full-service café, it opens up the space to anyone who has a heart for animals.

One might be slightly purr-plexed upon entering the cool new craft cafe in Vista … a seemingly familiar coffee shop set-up, decked in raw industrial styled furniture, classic wrought iron chairs, textured hand tufted rugs, tweed sofas and exposed industrial pendant lights ... but, with a subtle difference here. There’s a distinct proliferation of cat memorabilia wherever you turn; white chunky cat eared mugs, a stoic crosslegged brass cat buddha, succulents brimming over cat shaped ceramic planters, and of course cat centric tees that peer out of the cafe shelves. Cat & Craft is in a pedigree of its own, it is the first cat cafe in North County and second only in San Diego. The brainchild of husband and wife duo Caroline and Andrew Vaught, who found their cat calling when Caroline’s life was inextricably altered by the appearance of a feral cat on her porch who gave birth to kittens right before they were leaving town to get married. “I put everything on hold”, explains Caroline, “but, the process of getting the cats adopted was more rewarding than anything that I’d experienced before”. That pivotal moment set the stars in motion and after a transformative visit to her first ever cat cafe in Bali, the Vaughts changed gear and careers in marketing/ branding and moved from Atlanta to California in 2016; opening up Cat & Craft in January 2019. Cat & Craft is comprised of two business units partitioned by a glassed wall. The space fuses a full service 1,500-squarefoot cafe with a separated, visible,

800-square-foot, cage free lounge where cats (that are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed and neutered) recline among people, couches and cat toys. The lounge area, complete with a specialized separate air-conditioning system, allows anyone with pet allergies, to still enjoy the cafe, and its $12 hourly fee covers the rental, air conditioning, cost and care of the cats. “The concept was to create a publicly accessible foster home, where the community can enjoy craft coffee, locally baked goods, while watching and having access to adoptable cats,” explained Caroline,” whose mission is to find loving homes for cats. “I’m all about changing the cat adoption game”, enthuses Caroline, “We knew we’d automatically attract cat lovers, but by having a full-service café, it opens up the space to anyone who has a heart for animals”. Caroline’s passion is obvious and cat adoption is at the heart of the matter, “Our goal is to place 500 cats a year in forever homes”, states Caroline. Working with Love Your Feral Felines (LYFF), a North County non-profit based organization; the adoption lounge acts as an interim public adoption space. But, the Vaughts believe that the cat café leaves an indelible experience for people too, “we felt that the community could benefit from a space where they can see people experiencing and offering unconditional love”, says Caroline and that seems to be ringing true, the cafe is remarkably busy and since opening its doors, the cafe/lounge has already adopted 2 cats in the space of 6 days!

Chair of the Board Nick Ljubic


s winter turns to spring, new beginnings are ahead of us. Last December, our long time CEO Bret Schanzenbach accepted the position of CEO at the Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce. On behalf of the Vista Chamber of Commerce, I would like to personally thank him for his 10 years on staff and 5 years on the board of directors. Without his leadership and vision, the Vista Chamber of Commerce would not be where it is today! Best of luck to you in Carlsbad! You will always be Mr. Vista to us! With that being said, we are elated to announce that Rachel Beld will be our new CEO on March 6th. Rachel is no stranger to Vista, she spent 14 years working down the road at city hall in several positions - including working in recreation and economic development. She is a true Vistan at heart!! Please join us in giving her a warm welcome!

2019 Strawberry Festival May 26th



We plan on putting Rachel to work right away! Our annual Heroes of Vista Gala is on April 5th at Cal State San Marcos. It is truly a great event where we honor local educators, law enforcement, fire fighters, business leaders and businesses. I highly recommend attending this event. The energy is the room is electric all night as we celebrate our Heroes, enjoy a great meal and bid on auction items. Vista Strawberry Festival is quickly approaching. As you may have noticed, our event keeps growing every year. Last year we expanded our footprint to South Santa Fe and the field at Vista Magnet Middle School. Please make it a plan to join us for the festival and run on May 26th. This year the growth will continue and we guarantee a BERRY good time for all attendees! I have had the pleasure serving the Vista Chamber of Commerce as the interim CEO for the last couple months while we looked for a new CEO. I have learned a lot in that short time. When they say “It takes a village�, it really does. I have had the opportunity to see how hard our staff, board of directors, members, volunteers and City of Vista staff work to make Vista a great place to live, work and play. Thank you to each and every one of you!

We offer a FREE shuttle running every 15 minutes from two locations. Our shuttles are presented by Altitude Trampoline Park: The Vista County Courthouse 325 S.

Skateboarding will have its Olympic debut in 2020 in Tokyo, and Vista is getting in on the action! The California Skateparks Training Facility (CA|TF) provides a place where athletes can improve their skills in an environment that resembles the events that will serve as qualifiers to the Olympics and that will be in the Olympics themselves. The 27,000-square-foot facility allows participants to train for the Olympic skateboard “Street” and “Park Terrain” events. Says CA|TF Senior Vice President Brian Harper, “Our facility was designed and built to be ‘most like’ what you



would find on the professional contest circuit leading up to … the Olympics.” But you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to use the facility. Although not a typical drop-in skate park, CA|TF offers scheduled training programs and events for people of all ages and ability levels. Training programs include private and group coaching sessions that incorporate pads for safety, strength training, and video analysis. Past events have included Skate with the Pros, Holiday Skate Jam, and contests. In addition, there is open skating on Fridays from 3–7 p.m., “Old Man (and Woman)

Jam” on Thursdays from 3–7 p.m. (must be at least 30 years old), and the facility can be rented for birthday parties and other events. Typical participants are boys and girls ages 6–18, but the facility offers programs for beginning skaters to professional athletes. The facility is indoors and open up to 16 hours per day.

Vista because of its historic connection to skateboarding and because of the brands and professional skateboarders who currently reside in North County. Says Harper, “Vista … is the hub of skateboarding,... making it the perfect home for CA|TF. The community has welcomed us.”

CA|TF was designed and built by California Skateparks, which has designed, built, and landscaped more than 300 public skate parks throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. CA|TF is its first training center. California Skateparks chose

Mayor's Musings

2019 State of the Community

Mayor Judy Ritter

Thank you to the Chamber for hosting the State of the Community in which I presented my State of the City address. This venue provided the opportunity to share our City’s achievements and challenges for the future. I appreciate the Chamber’s continued partnership with the City and its leadership and support of our business community. The fiscal health of our city is in good shape due to sound financial planning. We have a good safety net with our emergency reserves and are now better financially prepared, regardless of future economic downturns. New jobs are being created and more opportunities are on the horizon. With our continued support of our business sector, we will continue to keep, train, and attract creative talent to our city and to our region. Like most successful cities, we have seen our city grow over the past years, and more recently, we are facing new housing, traffic, and environmental challenges, and a new medical marijuana industry which are all changing our city. While there is always change, there is also the constant: that the City is facing these challenges and our future projections with sound policies and informed and prudent guidelines. For me, this means listening to our residents and our business leaders who are experiencing these and other influences and different trends, and trying to truly understand where they are coming from before formulating any actions. I am honored to be your Mayor in a time of remarkable change in Vista. By defining unified goals; creating a comprehensive roadmap, and maintaining service levels to support the whole community; we will continue to shape our entire city’s collective destiny.

The Greatest Advancement in Spine Surgery Right in Your Own Backyard By Dr. Payam Moazzaz I have been a practicing spine surgeon for over ten years now. I began my career with an internship and residency at the University of California in Los Angeles, followed by a spine fellowship at the San Diego Center for Spinal Disorders and Scripps Green Clinic and began operating at Tri-City shortly after.

While traditional open spine surgery involves exposing the entire spine, the Renaissance system combines a CT-scan and advanced planning software to pinpoint the exact locations for treatment, minimizing wound exposure, loss of blood, scarring and reducing recovery time.

Eighty percent of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their life - that is an epidemic! A lot of my patients have very serious spine conditions and conventional methods such as physical therapy and prescription medication doesn't work for them. They need a permanent solution to their problem, but even after years of struggling, spine surgery was always considered to be a last resort.

After I plan everything out and enter the operating room, the Mazor device assists me in placing implants in the patient's spine with 99% accuracy and it is consistent across the board in all types of procedures. Since I know the robot will be accu-rate, I can then focus on overall treatment of the spinal condition to ensure this is the best possible option for my patient.

In 2012, I was introduced to a new technology - the Mazor Robotics Renaissance® Guidance System. Since then, I have performed over 400 spine surgery cases with the system and I am still excited about it and what it does for my patients. With the robot, I know I am giving my patients the best care. In many cases, my patients are up and walking the very same day after surgery, and they are going home the next. How does the Renaissance system help? First, I upload a basic CT scan of the patient's spine into the system's 3D planning software so I can see exactly what I need to do before I even enter the operating room. I plan everything out ahead of time, so I feel confident taking on difficult cases – even patients with really complex conditions can be corrected and walk normally again!

surgeries at Tri-City. Dr. Moazzaz has been practicing medicine for over 10 years – his many awards include the UC Davis Ernest M. Gold Award for Excellence and the Paul Lipscomb Award for

Excellence in Orthopedics. To learn more about Dr. Moazzaz or to determine if robotic spine surgery is right for you visit, or call 855.222.TCMC (8262).

If you are considering back sur surgery because nothing else has worked for you, check out the Mazor Robotics info on the TriCity website: www.tricitymed. org/services/surgical/roboticsurgery/mazor-robotics/. I truly believe in this technology be-cause I have witnessed first-hand how it benefits my patients. This is the best advancement in sur surgery that I have seen – the future is here! As the West Coast training center for the Mazor, Tri-City is one of the top sites for the system nationwide. Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Payam Moazzaz and Dr. Neville Alleyne have performed over 800 Mazor spine

Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Payam Moazzaz and Dr. Neville Alleyne stand beside the Mazor Renaissance spine surgery system which offers 99% accuracy and can be used for spine surgery here at Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside.



Dog Haus Biergarten Energizes Key Downtown Vista Corner When shoe repair shop owner Tom Fleming decided to retire and sell his building, he struck a deal with developer Lev Gershman of Tideline Partners and the By Barb Miltenberger

two agreed that whatever business would eventually open on this key corner of downtown, historic Vista, it needed to be a place where community would come together and gather.



Dog Haus Biergarten was the lucky tenant chosen to take over this space, opening on the corner of E. Broadway and South Indiana back in October of 2018. After receiving a near complete makeover, the only visual reminder of the former building is the octagonal-shaped window that still proudly hangs in the front of the restaurant. In the cobbler’s place now stands a lively, open-air, industrial-vibed eatery that has plenty of picnic-style tables to savor your meal at or you might want to seat yourself at the counter and catch the game on the big screen. The outside dining area is equipped with creature comforts like overhead

garden lighting, shade sails, heat lamps and even a long table that adds the ambiance of fire, perfect for a lingering evening hangout on the patio. Dog Haus is a dining concept that started back in 2010 by 3 friends and partners, Quasim Riaz, Hagop Giragossian and Andre Vener. The restaurant’s popularity caught on and demand caused them to begin opening more locations, many being in the Southern California region. Dog Haus serves up casual, counter-ordered fresh sandwiches, burgers, dogs and sliders, using only the finest, hormone and antibiotic-free beef, chicken and sausages, and they also provide a

plant-based option. The secret magic of their menu is in the combining of savory with sweet. All of their meats are sandwiched between their signature grilled Hawaiian rolls. Other options are available like lettuce wraps or a French roll if you ask at the counter. Tempting sides are fries (regular or sweet potato), tater tots (with or without cheese and chili- you choose), slaw, chili and onion rings. Their sandwiches are gooey and melty so you just might want to grab a fork, knife and plenty of napkins! There are ample interesting topping and sauce varieties to choose from like pickled jalapenos, onion rings, avocado, slaw, fried egg,

smoked bacon, chili, kraut, caramelized onion, a variety of cheeses, an array of aiolis, BBQ sauce, miso ranch and more. To complement your meal, Dog Haus has plenty of craft beers and your favorite local brews on rotation, in addition to wine and soft drinks. Be a part of the new history that is being made in downtown Vista! Grab your friends and stop by to try their tasty food and drink. You can find Dog Haus Biergarten at 229 E. Broadway in Vista. Hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday 11am to 10 pm and Friday and Saturday 11am to 11pm. Happy Hour is Monday through Friday 4:00 to 6:00pm.

Thinking About How to Keep Your Valuables Safe? Brown Safe Manufacturing Is Your Answer By Mary Schmidt-Krebs Have you ever thought about storing your valuables in a safe or a vault? Perhaps you should think about it! Founded in 1980, Vista is home to one of the nation’s preeminent builders of innovative, rugged, and luxurious safes and vaults – Brown Safe Manufacturing. Security is a growing issue these days and storing valuables in safes and vaults is fast becoming the standard, not the exception. Located at 1082 Poinsettia, Brown Safe Manufacturing offers a vast array of products for business, residential and government needs.

Their business products range from very small to very large safes along with two types of vault doors – monument and antique. Residential offerings include safes, in a variety of sizes, for jewelry, watches, guns and other valuables. Brown Safe Manufacturing even lets you customize your own jewelry safe with exotic metal and wood interiors. On the government side, they make GSA certified safes and vaults for U.S. embassies, Naval bases and ships built to withstand severe attacks. Every safe carries a 50 year warranty that covers the entire safe, including the lock and bolts.

Their website, is chockfull of valuable information about the business of safes and vaults including safe terminology, safe buying tips and competitor comparisons. The site also boasts nice array of testimonials from their loyal client base located all over the world. Included in the testimonials are accolades to Brown Safe Manufacturing from owners who have lost their home from fires here in Southern California and other parts of the country. Brown Safe Manufacturing recently started working with San Marcos’ HighTech High School and hired two female interns who are studying technology and manufacturing. Brown Safe was started by Frederick Brown shortly after his military service.

Initially a one man operation, Frederick was not a manufacturer but a reseller. Unhappy with the quality of the safes he was selling and determined to improve on existing designs, Frederick began designing custom safes of his own from his home workshop. Once he established a proven design method, Frederick started his own high security safe line in 1980. Initial production levels were quite low and Frederick employed a very small but select production crew. Most of these valued employees are still with the company. Demand slowly grew as word of mouth spread. As the operation expanded, every family member became involved in the business. Today, Brown Safe’s facilities occupy over 40,000 square feet, employing a workforce of over thirty along with contracting out to numerous external agencies. Demand for Brown Safes continues at a steady pace.

The Beginning of a Mission Tradition

By Lois Vaughan Cavalier

Built in 1798, the church at Mission San Luis Rey was once the largest building in California, with mission lands covering a 15-square-mile radius.

“Magical moments. From the elegant hors d’oeuvres served in the sacred garden of Mission San Luis Rey to the last toe-tapping tune, the Old Mission Heritage Ball was a festive and gala evening of glamor for North County.” The Bee Line social column in The Vista Press, October 7, 1984 20


And so it was– the outrageously successful beginning of a tradition that through the ensuing years has provided needed funds for historic Mission San Luis Rey. The mission stands tall and proud in eastern Oceanside, with the same majesty that greeted visitors after it was built in 1798. It is fittingly called the King of The Missions. Even though buildings and grounds are meticulously maintained by mission staff, in the early 1980s paint had begun to peel and the gardens and other areas required upkeep and renovation for which there were no funds. The mission does not receive grants or other

governmental help. Repairs must be funded by parish members and other citizens who care about its rich history. So committee members smiled a lot on the evening of September 22, 1984, as they viewed the results of their monthslong efforts to provide a fund-raiser that would honor the dignity of the historic site. Most important was that they knew they had reached their goal of $25,000. More than 300 guests in formal or early-Caifornia attire, including a large number of supportive Vistans, were warmly welcomed as they entered through the mission museum, wherein is housed one of the state’s finest collections of early California memorabilia. Gregorian chants played softly in the background. Mariachis strolled and the Los Amigos Folklorico Group danced as elegant cocktails and hors d’oeuvres were served in the sacred garden. A gourmet dinner followed in the softly lit inner garden, at tables centered with autumn-hued floral arrangements and votive candles. Even the nearby pepper tree, the oldest one in California, glowed with twinkle lights. Franciscan Father Michael Weishaar, superior of the mission, gave the blessing and welcomed guests, extending his gratitude for this outpouring of support.

Honored guest California Lt. Gov. Leo J. McCarthy was introduced by State Sen. William Craven, a parish member. Both cited the importance of preservation of this vital part of our history. A burst of fireworks filled the night sky – the signal for ever-popular Les Brown and His Band of Renown to strike up music for dancing and visiting from table to table. One more thing– rain was predicted for that night, but the sky was perfectly clear.

supposed to be a fund-raiser and you have already spent $10,000.” Not to worry, he was assured. Dr. Robert Germann was elected chairman and duties were assigned. Everyone set to work –with vigor.

And at last, on that magical evening, committee members watched with satisfaction as the event unfolded. And they smiled. A lot. And they said let’s do it again next year. And they did, setting a bold precedence for the many years to come.

At the first meeting of the ball committee in May 1984, members had gathered to consider an event, perhaps a dinner dance, that would raise the most funds while maintaining the mission atmosphere. As the meeting progressed, the everpatient Father Michael began to look concerned. Things appeared to be getting out of hand. “I know someone who has connections with Les Brown and His Band of Renown,” said one. Everyone nodded approval. There would be valet parking and an elegant cocktail hour and a gourmet dinner and flowers...and the tickets would be $100 per person or $180 a couple, an amount unheard of for a North San Diego County social event in the early 1980s.

Rancho Buena Vista High Students Learn in New, State of the Art TV & Film Studio By Julie Taylor Since the official ribbon-cutting ceremony in mid-October, Rancho Buena Vista High School students have had the opportunity to learn what it’s really like to work in a state-of-the-art television and film studio--right on campus. The studio was updated with $600,000 as part of a $4 million grant from the state entitled the Career Technical Education Insensitive Grant (CTEIG). The monies are to support the district’s Career Technical Education (CTE) programs. “The goal of the CTE programs are to prepare our students for careers upon graduation by giving them enough hands-on, real-life experience while still in school,” says Kelly McKinney, Career Technical Coordinator for Vista’s School District. McKinney says another round



of money is available for next year to receive continued funding through this grant. The new television and film studio at Rancho Buena Vista High includes a complete, working TV studio set with a full wall green screen chroma key, a news anchor desk, three studio cameras, and a separate area for guest interviews with a couch and chairs. Adjacent to the studio, there is a control room. In here, the director can call out shots using a brand new NewTek TriCaster, which allows the technical director to switch cameras as directed. The control room also features a teleprompter for scripts, a character generator for graphics and a sound board for mixing all the audio. Students also have access

to three separate sound rooms with smaller sound boards for cutting and editing purposes. The entire set up is equivalent to what one would typically find in most news stations across the country. On top of this, students have access to a computer lab with 36 brand new iMac computers. “Our TV/Film program at Rancho Buena Vista is extremely successful and this grant allows us to broaden the opportunities even further for our students,” adds McKinney. “They learn a variety of skills such as team work, public speaking, leadership, initiative, editing, producing, interviewing and much more!” Chris Tompkins, the school’s TV/Film/ CTE teacher since 2009 has seen

tremendous growth in his students because of this program. “There are 30 kids that make up two crews that rotate every other week,” he explains. “I’m so proud of this program. It really tests the kids’ abilities on so many levels – challenging them under pressure with only one chance to get it right when it’s live TV. The quality of work they are producing is impressive. Seeing them work together as a team and showing each other respect as they achieve their goals is extremely satisfying.” Today, students can now get involved as freshman and by the time they are juniors and seniors, they have the opportunity to work as interns doing independent projects and gaining even more experience for a future career. Starting in February, with a project deadline of early April, a group of 12 intern level students will be working with the Vista Chamber to interview between 50 and 60 local business leaders who are nominees for the Heroes of Vista celebration, which will be held later

this spring. Students will be creating 2-minute reels or videos highlighting each of the nominees and their work. “To see my students grow and mature each week in our program and achieve so much makes me incredibly proud,” says Tompkins.

“The goal of the CTE programs are to prepare our students for careers upon graduation by giving them enough handson, real-life experience while still in school,”

Qué Tortas has been operating a very successful shop in Escondido for ten years under the skillful leadership of Martin Hernandez. He brought his vision to Vista in October of 2018, with dreams of expanding further into North County in the future. The shop, which is tucked away off a busy Vista street, is light and bright, and clean as a whistle with ample indoor seating. Fresh fruits and veggies beckon from the front of the eatery in gleaming glass cases for all to see. Qué Torta’s concept is to focus on simple, yet amazing food and drink and to offer only the freshest ingredients to its customers. Martin was raised by a father who was employed in the produce industry and wholesaled to restaurants. In the process of working with the family business, Martin got a chance to preview many restaurants and what they had to offer and he knew he wanted to have his own establishment someday. Fast forward to 2008, he decided to make tortas his focus as he felt it was the “next hot thing” in the food market and that Southern California had a distinct lack of restaurants that offered them. The success of his Escondido location has certainly proved that tortas are indeed in demand. In addition to tortas, Qué Tortas offers sandwiches, both green and fruit salads, acai bowls, fresh juices, aguas fresca (blended fruit mixed with water), smoothies, soup, cakes and flan, and they plan to add real ice cream shakes in the near future. The star of the menu is most definitely the torta which has roots in Hispanic culture. What makes the sandwich special is the bread. Only a long, football-shaped bolillo roll will do for a torta, and at Qué Tortas, they are baked fresh, in-house daily. The uniqueness of the bolillo roll is that the



outer portion of the bread is toasty and crunchy, while the inside remains fluffy and soft. The tortas are toasted in the oven and layered with different meats, cheeses, fresh veggies, sauces and condiments. Their signature torta is the aptly named the Qué Torta. Inside the roll are layers of pork loin, ham, turkey, mayo, lettuce tomato, onion, avocado, jalapeno and chipotle sauce. Cheese is optional. Other meat options available to create your dream torta are: tuna, crab, salmon, chicken, ham, pork loin, turkey and Panela cheese for a vegetarian option. You pick and add the veggies and condiments of your choice. Qué Tortas wants to be your go-to for fresh and tasty sandwiches and salads, so please stop by soon and check it out. Martin and his crew are waiting to welcome you. You can find Qué Tortas at 828 North Santa Fe Ave, Ste. C in Vista 92083 (760) 295-3642 Hours of operation are: 7am to 9pm Monday through Saturday and 8am to 9pm on Sunday.
