Teamwork makes the dream work. On May 26, 2019 – I witnessed something that was just short of magic. More than 150 volunteers, dozens of City employees, Sheriff Deputies, Fire personnel, event professionals, vendors, racers, participants and sponsors all came together to celebrate our beautiful City and the love of all things strawberry. The 10th Annual Vista Strawberry Festival was one for the books. Despite a gloomy weather forecast, Mother Nature smiled upon us and the weather held out for most of the day which allowed tens of thousands of folks to enjoy all the Festival had to offer. It would not have come together without the efforts of our amazing team. It really is true; nothing can be accomplished without teamwork. Since the Chamber introduced the first edition of our quarterly publication ten years ago, Vista has grown and changed. A shared vision and commitment to improving

our community has pushed us forward. No one single action, person or business has brought on these positive changes alone; it has been a collaborative effort from many vested folks to create the momentum. Development is changing the landscape of our city, particularly Downtown. Phase One of Paseo Santa Fe is complete with construction for Phase Two slated to wrap up in the coming months. The need for housing in our region necessitates the incorporation of mixed use developments, which aim to bring residents Downtown to support businesses in a pedestrian friendly, transit friendly space. Construction for Streetlight, the mixed used development at 100 Main Street, is well underway. Things are happening in Downtown Vista! Throughout the City, we have seen the craft brew boom and a move towards celebrating many types of “makers.” New retail shops featuring locally made and unique clothes, accessories, and décor have opened. And with craft beer, we have also seen an uptick in dining options with varying price points. We have many more restaurant options compared to ten years ago. Visit our Facebook page and tell us your favorite places to eat and shop in Vista. Over the last ten years, Public Art has flourished and continues to grow with

increased support from the City via the annual Kites Over Vista exhibition, Vista-in-Bloom utility box beautification, and the addition of dozens of murals around town. The Civic Gallery, located in the Vista Civic Center, has grown into a year-round gallery space. Community groups such Backfence Society and the Vista Arts Foundation bring art to the community through participatory programs such as events, workshops, and pop-up shows. Make sure to check out the Alley Art Festival on June 9! Since our first publication ten years ago, our community has grown and changed in many ways. What has not changed is the hard-working, innovative and warm-hearted people who live, work, and play in Vista. I am so proud to know you and work alongside you to improve our city. Cheers!

Rachel Please visit the businesses on South Santa Fe during construction. See the ad of page 35 for more info. They are open and want to see you! VISTACHAMBER.ORG


Curbside Cafe–a Downtown Vista Classic By Barb Miltenberger

While businesses in the area have come and gone over the years, The Curbside Cafe has been delighting diners with breakfasts and lunches for the past 17 years. It seemed to have come at a time when the community hungered for a spot such as this, because business started taking off as soon as the doors opened. Affectionately known to locals as simply Curbside, it harkens to days gone by and you can’t help but feel at home inside the cheery walls.



The light and bright cafe is dotted with the colorful works of local artists and has a faithful following. It is perhaps best known in the community for their ample dog-friendly, umbrella-lined patio seating, right smack in the middle of downtown Vista. On a nice day, this is the most popular place to enjoy a meal. If it is a chilly day, John has provided a rack of jackets for your use so that you will be comfortable. He takes them home and launders them regularly. It is personal touches like this that make the Curbside Cafe extra special. John Randall, chef and owner, is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America. You can always find him floating around the establishment, either personally preparing your food or checking on his customers in his signature white apron. John has been in the restaurant business in one aspect or another for 45 years. He has served in just about every capacity of food service, including humble positions like dishwasher to quite lofty management appointments in 5-star restaurants and country clubs. You could say being a restauranteur is in his blood at this point. I asked John what his favorite part of running the business is and he replied, “I am a people pleaser and a caretaker by nature, and it’s all about customer service to me. I believe if you are going to do something, you need to

do it right.” As well as keeping his diners comfortable and well-fed, he is happy to share his days with his patrons and has rarely taken a day off in twenty years. You can certainly find some eclectic items on Curbside’s menu that you might not find other places. They are very well-known for their beautiful fresh fruit cups with up to 15 different kinds of fruit and house-made, meltin-your-mouth cinnamon rolls that are prepared and baked fresh daily. Popular breakfast items include huevos rancheros, crabcake benedict, New York Steak and eggs, hashes or one of their many omelettes. For lunch, you also have a wide variety of choices. You can find anything from burgers to quesadillas to wraps and sandwiches (including crabcake and the classic Monte Cristo) as well as salads and soups. The Curbside Cafe's recipe for success is using high-quality, fresh ingredients, giving superior customer service and providing a consistent experience, visit after visit, year after year.

I am a people pleaser and a caretaker by nature, and it’s all about customer service to me. I believe if you are going to do something, you need to do it right.

The Curbside Cafe is waiting to host your next meal. Grab your friends and family and come down soon and say hi to John and his friendly staff. You can find The Curbside Cafe at 307 Main Street, Vista, CA, they're open 6:30am2:30pm daily. VISTACHAMBER.ORG

Summer time plans are underway in Vista and we are excited for another great season of entertainment at the Moonlight Amphitheatre. Four blockbuster musicals are on tap, kicking off with Mel Brook's hit, The Producers, then on to the family-oriented Matilda, the Musical, followed by the great epic love story West Side Story, and concluding with the witty and comic Victor/Victoria. If you have not yet experienced a Moonlight production, I encourage you to learn more about the upcoming productions online at MoonlightStage. com. The Moonlight Amphitheatre is a one-of-a-kind experience with its beautiful outdoor setting and professional productions. The theatre is very family friendly and is a great place to make summer memories. I've enjoyed sharing the theatre with my children and now with my grandchildren! The City is also providing its Movies in the Park series. This is a terrific venue to spend an evening with family and friends. This summer's line-up includes: BumbleBee; Incredibles 2; and How to Train Your Dragon - The Hidden World. The best part is that the movies and popcorn are free! The movie locations and more information is available online at Enjoy the season and make this summer one to remember in Vista! Photo by Kent Leithold VISTACHAMBER.ORG

The ancient Greeks did it, the Romans and Vikings did it, even Chaucer and Shakespeare were rumored to do it; now modernday Californians in Vista are doing it too; imbibing the sweet elixir of mead at the Norse inspired Twisted Horn.

“Mead is fermented honey and is almost as old as civilization, dating back to ancient Greece and the Romans”, explains Vince Obarski (head mead maker at Twisted Horn), his face lights up as he leads me through an innocuous industrial estate facade, through to an extraordinary Norse inspired mead hall, flanked in reclaimed cedar and lit by tarnished silver Viking-helmet lamps. Above me sprawl the branches of a Norwegian Birch tree strung with lights; around the corner is a replica of a Viking longhouse, complete with wood beams, a pseudo flickering fire and a bar hung with horns (to drink out of, of course). The feel evokes a mythological world of mystique and marvelous flavors. Twisted Horn, opened its doors in December 2016, formed by two home brewing couples and friends - Vince and Robin Obarski and Mike and Lisa McCague. Vince’s love of mead grew out of a trip he had made while serving in the military in Norway, captivated by the flavor and culture of that region. Vince learned how to make his own mead and along the way and years later, met Mike, an avid home brewer and business owner. “I had been brewing for a number of years,” says Mike, “I was looking to open up a brewery in 2007 but, there was a hop crisis and grains became very expensive”. Almost eight years later in 2015, Mike had lined up capital and began shopping for a location, only to realize that San Diego had become saturated with breweries. “There are over 175 warehouse breweries in San Diego”, says Mike and, “I

quickly realized there was an alternate path”. That path would lead to the friends, fusing their vision, their respective business experiences and their love of home brewing to open the doors of Twisted Horn, which is also the only mead and cider maker in Southern California. Mead comes in hues of autumnal colors, deep ambers, claret reds and honeyed browns. With concoctions like Blushing Maiden; a semisweet mead, made with wildflower honey and cranberry, and Red Harvest; a dry mead reminiscent of apples with vanilla bean and hints of cinnamon, there are many varieties to choose from. As a novice to mead, the taste is uniquely fresh, conversely sweet and slightly tart, with an unparalleled complexity. The ciders here too, are a complete surprise to me with their unusual and delightful flavor combinations. Hidden Stones; a full sweet cider with peachy flavors and a zing of spicy ginger root or the delicate taste of Solsteinn; a cider made with tart hibiscus and guava are just two of the many cider offerings. “People assume that mead is overly sweet and syrupy as its typically between 12 and 20 percent ABV (alcohol

by volume), ours however, is 7 to 9 percent, so it's not too sweet, but still has a full flavor to it”, explains Mike.

in drink,” and the perfect destination for weary craft beer lovers looking for something totally exciting and different.

Apart from the ingenious infusions, quality is key, “our honey comes from Temecula Valley Honey, a locally sourced honey producer, with honey made in the state of California … it's pollinated by bees on orange, avocado groves, grapefruits, wild flower and

mountain sage,” explains Vince. The wonderfully eclectic flavors are the experimentations of Vince, Robin, Mike and Lisa, whose passion for flavors, is apparent in their love of supper clubs and home brewing. With such an amalgam of fruits, spices and herbs and a spectrum ranging from sweet, dry, sparkling to still, it's no wonder that partners Mike and Vince are convinced that “this could be the next new wave VISTACHAMBER.ORG

My family and I moved to Vista in 1988. A vivid childhood memory of mine was taking S. Santa Fe, taking the left on Broadway and going to school at St. Francis. If I was lucky enough, we would even stop at the Thifty’s across the street for a scoop of ice cream. I remember chats with my mom on the way to school, and how she would complain how bad Santa Fe looked and that it needed to change. That left on Broadway is now gone. The Thifty’s gone. What we have now is a vibrant Vista Village, a revitalized historic downtown and a S. Santa Fe on the verge of being the gem of Vista as Paseo Santa Fe. 30 years ago, I doubt many of us could have ever thought that little Vista would grow up to be as awesome as it has. I’d glad they took my mom’s advice. It does take a village though! Countless hours of city staff time, collaboration with residents, communication with the Vista Chamber, dozens of planning commission meeting, getting state funding (then losing it) are just some of the steps many in Vista had to take to even get the projects started. I commend the officials at City Hall for never losing focus and always keeping the foot on the gas pedal. A special thank you to all the businesses affected by the current construction. I personally encourage the community to make an effort to still frequent these places of businesses. They need our support! Lastly, it has been a pleasure serving as your Chairman of the Board this last year. It has been great to be involved with an organization that does so much good work in the community. From Rising Star scholarships, to kids playing at the Strawberry Festival, to business mixers, we have affected many people in the community. I leave you in the hands of two amazing women: Jamie Johnson from North County Health Services, as your Chairwoman of the Board and Rachel Beld, Vista Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Officer. Watch out Vista….great things are on the horizon from these two!!

Leading By Serving Others By Anne McDonnell

The Servant Leadership Institute (SLI) is dedicated to inspiring and equipping leaders to practice the leadership philosophy called “servant leadership,” which takes the traditional model of leadership and turns it upside down. Instead of staff and employees working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people. The practice is centered on a desire to serve, and emphasizes collaboration, trust, empathy, and the ethical use of power. Its primary goal is to enhance individual growth, teamwork, and overall employee involvement and satisfaction. Based out of its headquarters in Carlsbad, SLI teaches this model through programs, workshops, conferences, podcasts, webinars, books, and coaching. Says SLI President Robin Swift, SLI “seeks to help both individuals and organizations put servant leadership into practice and find meaning and purpose in their work. The Institute encourages the fostering of a workplace environment built on trust where all employees and stakeholders can feel fulfilled and succeed.”



SLI was founded in 2008 by speaker and author Art Barter, who rebuilt the culture of the manufacturing company he bought in 2004, Datron World Communications, and wanted to share what he learned with others. Clients of SLI come from many industries, including manufacturing, hospitality, healthcare, and education. They include supervisors, human resources professionals, managers, and individual contributors who want to be better leaders, says Swift. The most popular SLI services are its workshops, books, and yearly leadership conference. According to Swift, the yearly conference is attended by groups from large companies like Boeing, American Airlines, and Luby’s Fuddrucker restaurants; smaller organizations representing education, healthcare, hospitality, and government; and individuals looking to create servant-led environments where they live and work. Says Swift, “Thanks to social media, our reach has grown, and we continue to draw attendees nationwide, as well as visitors from Canada, Europe, and Africa.”

It follows that if you teach leadership, you need to practice what you preach. Says Swift, “We don’t just teach servant leadership, we employ it here in our office. Each employee comes into the office … with the mindset that we want to add value to the organization. In each of our roles, we look to serve those around us and our customers, internal and external. Leadership here is constantly looking to serve our employees by meeting them where they are and maximizing their strengths.”

"...The Institute encourages the fostering of a workplace environment built on trust where all employees and stakeholders can feel fulfilled and succeed.”

SLI is also involved in the local community, including sponsorships, such as the recent Women’s Leadership Day at the KIA Classic golf tournament. According to Swift, the local community has always been supportive of SLI, and plays an important role in promoting its yearly conference. Says Swift, “The practice of servant leadership is a game changer. We believe it not only creates more successful and significant leaders, but better people in general. We are very honored to do the work we do.”

Whether you're being pampered, stretched or soaked in your favorite spa, massage or salon, odds are that you are doing so on Earthlite’s massage equipment. Earthlite, based in Vista, CA is touted to be the world’s leading supplier of spa and massage tables. Winning a bevy of accolades and awards from the spa industry, including One Concept’s award for Environmental Leadership; the ISPA Innovate Award for the last five years (in categories ranging from mani-pedi combination chairs, mobile carts to super low-height range spa tables); it has also garnered recognition from the public, winning, nine years in a row, the American Spa Magazine Readership Awards – for its products (Favorite Treatment Table Manufacturer) and for its stellar customer service – Favorite Company for Manufacturer Support category. The list of the awards and recognition is endless, so what makes this company so successful? “If your committed to making a high-quality product, you stand behind that product...and you dealing with people and products ethically…as a result, you empower your employees to do the right thing, this gives a sense of pride and job satisfaction”, explains Jim Chenevey, the President, Chief Executive Officer and co-owner of Earthlite and Living Earth Crafts. Jim who used to manage the international division of Callaway Golf, joined Earthlite back in 2004, he had met the founder, Tomas Nani a former massage therapist. “Tomas had grown the manufacturing company from scratch...there were some challenges in the marketplace and I was able to help him”, says Jim, who was drawn by what he saw, as a highly principled company. “I loved Toma’s focus on core principles of honesty, sustainability, and quality instead of profit only”, enthused Jim. Jim Chenevey, Earthlite President, Chief Executive Officer

Those ethics were drafted and written into the company’s ‘Guiding Principals’ by Jim. They include being - Earth Friendly, using environmentally friendly materials and processes whenever possible. “We have a clean effluent factory here in Vista...we don't use any solvents, only water-based lacquers and glues, we recycle our sawdust, wood scraps, use the low voltage lighting program with SDG&E and have a complete carbon offset program, which means a zero-carbon footprint for our factory”, says Jim. The company name and environmental philosophy is, as Jim puts it, “simply, part of our DNA”. Product excellence and Innovation is another key principal at Earthlite. “We employ a number of technologies in the way we build our tables, so that they last for a long time”, says Jim, who is proud of the technological advances and processes that the company uses. “We developed a super quiet, sound dampening technology–Quietech™, which is key in the hotel and resorts industry,



Acoustic Resonance Therapy, as well as the 100% PU state-of-the art ultra-soft vinyl’s, just some of many”.

Earthlite: Light on the Planet, Large in the Spa Market. By Sherrin Guy

This emphasis on innovation has been a key part of Jim’s strategy in growing the company, “I wanted to create opportunities to grow the we have innovated a lot, invested a lot, got into new sectors of our industry,” explained Jim. When Jim joined Earthlite, back in 2004, the company was the leading player of spa and portable massage tables, but the organization was faced with challenges that were affecting the company’s profitability- problems with the dealer network, Chinese competitors knocking off their products at low prices and internet retailers, who were selling their tables at deeply discounted prices. Jim decided to turn that around, “we went on a campaign, innovating basic products and creating patented technologies”, said Jim. “We continued in this process of innovation in our Spa division, creating new types of products and versions of our spa tables, to differentiate them from everything else that was out there”. Earthlite also makes customized spa tables to order. These strategies have paid off with Earthlite being recognized as the market leader not only in the US, but also abroad with its international sales. “We've done two acquisitions in the last two years...are investing in automated equipment and are looking to expand serving the international large hotels and resorts.” “Earthlite is already selling well internationally both in Asia and in Europe”, states Jim. With global growth and a commitment to environmentalism, Jim is soundly optimistic about the future.



Tim McCreary Teaches Important Life Skills Through the Vehicle of Automotive Repair at VHS By Julie Taylor



fter more than a decade, Automotive Repair Instructor Tim McCreary continues to give students at Vista High School (VHS) the opportunity to get their hands dirty while learning some invaluable life skills in the process. Each year, between 100-130 students, including a growing number of girls from every grade level learn all about what it takes to be an automotive technician. Students learn everything from maintenance to light repair. The program covers oil and filter changes, tire maintenance and repair, engine tune ups, brake repair and more. Second

year students learn computer engine controls, diagnostics, computer wheel alignment and other complex electrical systems found in today´s more sophisticated vehicles. In the process, they also learn about teamwork, problem-solving, effective listening, and overcoming their fears of trying new things in front of their classmates. “Failing is part of the learning process, but kids don’t like to fail in front of their friends,” says McCreary. “I try and create a team environment that encourages trial and error. As a former earth science teacher, it’s also important

to me to show students how science, math, and technology play important roles in automotive repair, especially when we talk about fuel injection, barometric pressure, and air/fuel ratios,” he explains. “My students also learn how to apply the scientific method in everything we do. It is very satisfying to see

cars. “We are grateful to them and to all those who donate vehicles,” says McCreary. “This year, a local woman offered her vehicle for the students to learn and work on. When completed, she plans to donate it to a needy/deserving VHS student,” he says. “We’ve also worked closely with Toyota

“I try and create a team environment that encourages trial and error."

students repair vehicles from a hypothesis they formed through testing and the data they collected and analyzed. Once they figure out the solution, they beam with pride.” McCreary adds that this is the skill-set of a highly qualified technician, not just a parts replacer. Furthermore, the skills they learn in his class are easily transferable and what employers are looking for in today’s work force. Obtaining vehicles and supplies is sometimes a challenge, but McCreary finds support from local sources, including VHS staff willing to let the kids fix their

Automotive. Representatives from the Corporate Technician Training program recently toured our shop and classroom. They ended up donating a Prius to us, along with the dealer tech curriculum to help our students study the latest Toyota technology. Donations like these and from Napa Auto Parts and B&D Automotive of Vista make all the difference.” Through the years, VHS students have worked on a wide variety of makes and models. They include a ’65 Mustang, a Volkswagen diesel engine, and a 1984 Porsche that the kids put a modern V8

Corvette engine into. They have also worked on a Honda Civic Hybrid to learn about new technology and are in the process of transforming a beautiful 1929 Model A into a hot rod. After two full years in McCreary’s program, students are eligible to become NC3 Certified. The NC3 is a standardized certification program in the automotive industry that tests students’ knowledge in the areas of torque, digital multimeters, and scanners since most cars today have up to 10 separate computers in them. Tests are taken offsite and cost $30. Students may also obtain an Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification. This program tests

their knowledge of brakes, front ends, and transmissions. “There is such a huge demand in the industry to get qualified technicians out there, that it’s gratifying to know that my students are able to work as mechanics right after high school,” says McCreary. “Several of my former students are successful technicians and some even travel as part of auto racing teams. Seeing my students excel, while learning team building skills and life lessons in the process is truly what makes this job so worthwhile.” VISTACHAMBER.ORG

The facility is absolutely beautiful and it was perfect for our needs. — Bret Schanzenbach


ith nearly two decades of home-brewing experience and a doctorate in chemistry from UC San Diego, 117° West Spirits head distiller, Justin McCabe, has chosen to weave these two passions together to reinterpret traditional spirit recipes. He and his longtime friend and now business partner, Jon “Archie” Kasten, decided to abandon the home-brewer’s dream of opening a craft brewery and forge relationships with the young tight-knit craft spirits industry and make a seminovel product that taps into the heart of the San Diego beer scene – hopped whiskey and gin.

117° West Spirits Distillery Offers an Array of West Coast Inspired Spirits By Mary Schmidt-Krebs

Both Justin and Archie are teachers by trade – and still are – but they also have a shared passion for the science of distillation. They opened their Vista-based distillery in late 2017, at 2332 La Mirada Drive, Suite 800, and have developed a line of 10 products with more on the horizon. The 117° West Spirits product line includes west coast style inspired rum, gin, bourbon, rye and whiskeys. In addition to serving up their line of spirits at their tasting room, the spirits can also be found at six San Diego-area eateries, with more to come. On tap for late July, the duo plan to hold an invitation-only special whiskey tasting event that will feature three new whiskey batches – bourbon, rye and cherya – a hops whiskey. Due to strict ABC regulations, whiskey enthusiasts interested in attending this event must be on the 117° West Spirits mailing list and submit an RSVP. To join the mailing list, visit the company website at and simply hit the Sign Up or Join The Club buttons. The date for this event is still to be determined but subscribers will be notified when a date is set. In addition to its weekly tasting hours of 4–8pm Thursdays and Fridays, Saturdays from 2–9pm and Sundays by appoint-

What is a West Coast Spirit you might ask? Honestly, at this point it is up for debate but their interpretation is one that focuses on the elements of high quality regional ingredients, bold flavors and new ideas. An example is their gin. This product takes a traditional recipe for the precursor to Gin known as

Genever and reinvents it with a West Coast twist. While maintaining the predominant flavor of juniper among their botanicals along with more traditional ingredients like coriander, orris root, angelica root and others, they add West Coast inspired ingredients like White Sage, Hibiscus, citrus peel and Citra hops.

Vista's Bill Shutts... Still Teaching and Learning at 105! By Lois Vaughan Cavalier Photo courtesy of Marilyn Adams.


remember throughout our lives the great teachers who inspired us to learn and to grow and to use our acquired skills to the utmost. As he celebrates his 105th birthday, longtime Vista resident Bill Shutts remains an exemplar of those special teachers. He says that of the awards he received during his decades in the classroom, he is still proudest of the “Professor of the Year” honors bestowed upon him by vote of his own students at two major universities. And William Holland Shutts, Ph.D., still teaches – and learns, his other favorite thing to do. “We look forward to Spanish class with him each week,” said Paula Montalvo. “We have been reading and translating Spanish books together for more than five years.” “We share everything from novels by Mark Twain and Louis L’Amour to short stories by Spanish authors,“ added classmate Karyl Bruhn. “Our Profesór keeps his students inspired.”



Bill was born on May 11, 1914, in Woodston, Kansas, a town of 300. He was the third of five children born to Fred and Nellie Shutts. While he was still attending what he calls an “excellent high school” that also served neighboring communities, his mother saw his potential and urged him to earn a teaching credential and enroll in college. Bill studied hard and soon received a “mail-order” teaching certificate. From 1932 (he was 18) to 1934, he taught all eight grades in a one-room school house in Osborne, Kansas. “I was the principal, the teacher and the playground supervisor,” Bill said. Of his $40 a month salary, he paid his parents $5.00 for rent. In 1935, he enrolled at the University of Colorado at Boulder. It was there that he met Enid, “my cute red-headed Irish girl.” They soon married, a union that lasted “66 and one-half years” until Enid’s death in 2007. The couple had two sons, Bill Jr., who passed away in 2018, and David, who lives in La Mesa and keeps in close touch.

Bill earned his bachelor's degree with a major in mechanical engineering and then went on to receive his master's degree at the same school with a major in aeronautical engineering. He managed to letter in tennis along the way. And he played clarinet, saxophone and guitar for most of his life. Education was not easily come by financially for Bill. He worked as an instructor while earning his bachelor’s and master's degrees and as an assistant professor as he worked on his doctorate.

To reach his ultimate goal of full professor, he would need a doctorate degree. So with full support from Enid, they were off to the University of Texas at Austin. Bill taught as an assistant professor as he earned his degree in aeronautical engineering. “Enid was such a good wife and partner,” he said. “She took care of the boys and of me while I was carrying as many classes as I could and being the best assistant professor I could.”

In 1947, the family came to San Diego. Bill was on leave from the University of Colorado to gain some practical knowledge in regard to the courses he had studied. He worked for Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation as an aerodynamicist from 1947 to 1949.

Doctorate in hand, Bill “put out a few feelers” for possible jobs. He was immediately invited by San Diego State University to help establish, and serve as head of, the Aeronautical Engineering Department of the School of Engineering. He accepted the offer and remained there as a professor and department chair until his retirement in 1977.

But he was a teacher. It was always there. A teacher. He interviewed with San Diego State University, then known as San Diego State College, and was hired as an assistant professor of engineering.

Golf and travel in their motor home were on the retirement menu. But Bill and Enid were looking for the perfect permanent home as well. While driving through Vista, they saw a For Sale sign at the entrance to Vista Cascade

What is the secret of Bill’s longevity? “I think keeping a positive attitude and having a sense of humor helps...”

Mobilehome Park. By evening, they had found and purchased the home where Bill still resides after 35 years. “Retired” wasn’t exactly the right description for Bill. He served on the board of directors of the resident-owned park from 1994 to 2002 and filled a half-term in 2004. He helped guide the purchase of the park, saved many thousands of dollars through a later mortgage re-negotiation, and was honored at the mortgage-burning ceremony in 2017. Now for what everyone would like to know. What is the secret of Bill’s longevity? “I think keeping a positive attitude and having a sense of humor helps,” he says. “I’ve had a few close shaves along the way but I’ve made it okay. I had a good wife, good genes and good luck.” Two of his family members have lived past 100. As he celebrates his 105th birthday, Bill Shutts has a dedicated fan club of loving family, friends, neighbors and caregivers who honor him for a life dedicated to helping others learn and succeed.

Nick says, “We understand everyone’s budget and timeline is different and our customers are treated with the utmost respect, while they decide what works best for their family. There are no aggressive “commissioned salespeople” on our staff, pushing to just … close the deal. This is not how we do business”. Your Window Shoppe also welcomes Do-ItYourself customers.

Broadway’s Best Under the Stars! 2019 SUMMER SEASON

JUNE 12 – 29 AT 8 PM


AUGUST 14 – 31 AT 8 PM

SEPTEMBER 11 – 28 AT 7:30 PM

Mel Brooks’ “equal opportunity offender” blockbuster musical kicks off the summer skewering Broadway traditions in a take-no-prisoners comedy hit! Recommended for mature audiences.

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, this new Broadway musical hit receives its San Diego Regional Premiere. This Tony-winning show about an extraordinary girl was Time Magazine’s #1 musical of the year.

Something’s coming, something good in this musical that triumphantly changed Broadway forever. This great American musical is as relevant today as ever and is sure to stay with you long after the last rumble.

Based on the hit 80s film, Victor/Victoria is a truly classic musical with an electrifying musical score and dazzling production numbers set against the backdrop of the original Broadway sets and costumes.
