Sticking their necks out
Programs to help conserve giraffe look to gain traction locally and around the world By Tony Cagala
ESCONDIDO — The two giraffe approached the truck seemingly without a worry as Amanda Lussier, an animal keeper at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park extended a large Acacia branch out and over the truck’s railing. One of the giraffe quickly latched onto the branch with its large blue tongue and proceeded to pull it into its mouth, contorting its lips around the leaves. The second giraffe followed suit,
with some of the park’s 14 other giraffe coming over, lowering their long necks down into the truck’s flatbed to see what food might be available. That was an entirely different experience than what David O’Connor, a conservation education division consultant with San Diego Zoo Global Institute for Conservation Research, found while studying giraffe in the East African country of Kenya. For six months near the area of Laikipia, O’Connor would have to overcome certain challenges while
trying to observe giraffe in the wild — at times being forced to observe them from distances anywhere from 200 meters to 500 meters away. It took him a month, he said, just to get the giraffe used to seeing his truck. Other times, the giraffe wouldn’t do anything but stare at him for several hours on end, making it difficult to make any behavioral observations.

Commission endorses cell tower ordinance By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS — San Marcos’ proposed cell-tower ordinance received a unanimous endorsement from the city planning commission Monday night, despite being panned by both cell phone companies and opponents of the towers. That’s compromise — when nobody is happy — the commissioners said. “This is a perfect example of ‘you’re damned if you do, and damned if you don’t,” Commissioner Carl Maas said. “Nobody is going to walk away from this happy,” Commissioner Steve
Kildoo concurred. Technically, the commission’s vote was to recommend the Council approve the proposal at a future council meeting. Among other things, the new rules would discourage cell companies from installing towers in residential and agricultural areas by requiring them to seek a conditional-use permit (as opposed to a less onerous administrative permit) and provide the city with technical proof that the location is necessary to bridge a significant gap in coverage and is the only possible location that would
do it. The ordinance also sets the maximum allowable towers on a given property based on its size. For example, a 10.1acre parcel could have a maximum of three cell towers. Eric Flodine, the commission’s chair, said the inclusion of the maximum-tower language and the conditional-use requirement made his decision easier, despite the opposition from both sides of the debate. “Having a CUP requirement means that the people will have a chance
and we will have a chance and the council will have a chance to weigh in on these application,” Flodine said. “It gives me comfort to move forward.” Cell-tower opponents railed against the ordinance, arguing the rules did not go far enough to protect residents. One particular group of opponents have been urging the city for stricter rules since last fall, when a homeowner in the Questhaven neighborhood sought — and received — approval for a second, 35-foot-tall microwave towTURN TO CELL TOWER ON 8

Vista magnate schools giving students 21st century-ready outlook By Tony Cagala
VISTA — Two magnate schools within the Vista Unified School District are on their way towards making its students more culturally aware, multi-lingual and emerge with a more 21st century-ready outlook thanks to the implementation of the International Baccalaureate curriculum. Laurel Ferreira is an International Baccalaureate coordinator with the Cal State San Marcos extended studies course, where for the past two years teachers from the school districts of Escondido, San Marcos and Carlsbad have been enrolled and receiving training in the curriculum. And for the last year, Ferreira has been working with Vista teachers from Casita Center for Technology, Science and Math and the Vista Academy of Performing Arts as the schools work to become IB recognized. The program has been implemented into the schools as teacher training
progresses. “The International Baccalaureate really works on not just high academic achieving levels, but having people understand different cultures, speak different languages, be able to critically think, problem solve; take in different perspectives — all of those pieces — so that when they’re working with other people it facilitates that,” Ferreira said. A lot of European, Asian and Australian schools are IB recognized, explained Ferreira. Alvin Dunn in San Marcos is in the beginning phase of becoming an IB recognized school, too. Jefferson Elementary in Carlsbad was one of the early schools to implement the IB program into their curriculum. “It’s one of these things, that it’s growing. “What IB tries to do is take skills and knowledge and put them into real world settings so that you’re learning is more inTURN TO SCHOOLS ON 27

The reasons for John Coates’ abrupt resignation as the city manager of Carlsbad remain unknown. His departure, however, has cost the city more than $145,000. Courtesy photo
Departure of city manager cost city over $145,000 By Rachel Stine
CARLSBAD — In a mesh of paid leave, severance package, and increased salary for interim officials, the city of Carlsbad paid more than $145,000 total for the resignation of John Coates, its former city manager. And because the decisions regarding the exit of the top city official were based on confidential personnel matters, the public will never know why City Council decided to spend that money in those ways. Coates spent years building his career within the city of Carlsbad before he silently resigned after serving less than eight months as the official city manager. He was first hired as Carlsbad’s parks and recreation director in January 2010, having previously worked for the city of Santee. On being hired thencity Manager Lisa Hildabrand praised Coates’ “solid leadership and true passion for the parks and recreation field.” Coates quickly rose to assistant city manager on July 19 that same year. He would eventually take over for interim city manager duties for Hildabrand when she went on leave in November 2012. He was appointed as the official city manager on March 12, 2013. As Carlsbad’s head official, Coates oversaw the city’s operations and delivery of services, reporting directly to City Council. He ushered Carlsbad through significant changes including a new pay-for-p e r for m a nc e agreement with city employees and the start of construction of the city’s desalination plant. After months of serving as the official city manager, Coates announced his resignation to city council in a closed session meeting on Oct. 31, 2013. The meeting’s agen-
da stated that the matter was discussed during Coates’ performance evaluation. The evaluation was specially scheduled because according to his city manager employee agreement, Coates was supposed to be evaluated once each year in January. The following Monday, an intercity memo initially stated that Coates was out on leave and the city fire chief had stepped up as acting city manager. Coates made no public comments about his resignation. City council declined to explain why he left after serving as the official city manager for less than a year. Coates’ separation agreement required him and the city to remain tight-lipped about the matter. According to the agreement, Coates is not allowed to comment or file any complaints, charges or lawsuits in regards to his resignation. The city in turn agreed that human resources would respond to all employment references for Coates by stating, “only the dates of Coates’ employment and the position(s) held.” The city’s only official statement about Coates’ resignation was released after his separation agreement was finalized on Nov. 6. “John was called to serve at a critical time of transition for our city organization,” said Mayor Matt Hall in a statement upon Coates’ resignation. “He has accomplished an ambitious agenda, leaving us well positioned to continue on our path of becoming a truly world class city.” The only time any reasons for why Coates left would have been given was in the closed meeting, according to assistant city manager Kathy Dodson. “The only people that TURN TO CITY MANAGER ON 27

Country Club development to be placed on ballot By Rachel Stine
ESCONDIDO — When the Escondido City Council unanimously approved an initiative to keep the Escondido Country Club and Golf Course as open space and a golf course in August, they thought the matter was closed. But a new petition has forced city council to put the country club owner’s proposal to build over 400 homes and a community center on the property to the voters on the November ballot. Hundreds of residents attended Wednesday night’s city council meetings to show their opposition to the development and support of the original open space and golf course initiative. Developer Michael
Schlesinger’s company, Stuck in the Rough, LLC, bought the country club in 2012. The country club was closed on April 1, 2013, and shortly after Schlesinger announced his plan to replace the club and golf course with homes. Residents of the nearby country club rallied together as the Escondido County Club Homeowners Organization to oppose the development and petitioned the city to keep the land as a golf course and open space. That led to city council approving their petition initiative in August. But Schlesinger fought back with a petition of his own, with the initiative to build 430 homes and a community center complete with a
pool and tennis courts. The petition garnered over 11,000 signatures, almost 9,000 of which were verified by the San Diego County Registrar of Voters. The proposal came before city council on Wednesday night. Because enough signatures in support of the petition were gathered, the city was required by California Election Code to place the development proposal on this November’s ballot. City Council did have the option of ordering a report on the facts surrounding the initiative and proposed development before the initiative is put to voters. Schlesinger did not attend, but several of his business associates spoke on the proposal’s
behalf. They lauded the development proposal for bringing jobs and millions of dollars in economic benefits to the city of Escondido. Former state senator Dennis Hollingsworth pointed to the multi-million ongoing dollar litigation Stuck in the Rough, LLC, filed against the city last year. He said that sending the country club matter to the voters is more favorable than continuing with the lawsuit. A handful of ECCHO representatives spoke on behalf of the hundreds of members that attended the meeting to advocate for the study.

Districts address school safety in report By Rachel Stine
REGION — From keeping out intruders to evacuating students, school districts throughout the county examined how secure their campuses are and prepared their staff is for safety emergencies. “Student safety and adult safety are our number one priority. Teaching and learning can’t occur unless people feel safe,” said Jennifer Walters, Superintendent of the Escondido Union School District. “While we are about educating and teaching students, we have to make sure we do that in the best environment,” said Carlsbad Unified School District Superintendent Suzette Lovely. In March, San Diego County’s Grand Jury released a report addressing school safety needs and recommending specific actions
for local districts to enhance security. The report’s fifteen findings focused on measures that districts can take beyond security infrastructure like fences and locked doors to improve safety. “Physical security measures alone, such as increasing armed security and/or arming school staff, should not be solely relied on to ensure the safety of school staff and students,” the report stated. The report recommended increased communication between district staff, first responders, parents, and students as well as established training and security plans. Each San Diego County school district responded to each of the Grand Jury’s findings in terms of how the recommendations applied to their specific schools. The Carlsbad Unified,

What’s the beef with backyard beefsteaks? By Catherine S. Blakespear
I support an Encinitas that embraces our agricultural past and uses it to launch us into a small-scale farming renaissance that could be our future. Encinitas is lucky to still have the remnants of our historic flower-growing industry. We also have landowners with historic avocado and citrus orchards from before the city’s incorporation in 1986 and a batch of new, young residents interested in locally grown food. We have willing growers, eager buyers and the perfect climate for year-round food production. If residents want to grow food for sale locally, we should encourage that and make it easy. Unfortunately, recent interpretations of our current city codes do just the opposite. For example, Encinitas city planners have requested an unreasonable amount of information from the owner of a 2-acre heritage farm, Coral Tree Farm, to prove that the farm has been in consistent agricultural use for the last 28 years in order to retain her right to farm. No public agency, not even the IRS, asks people to keep records 28 years. Similarly, the planning department has suggested to the proposed Encinitas Community Garden that they might need to use asphalt inside the garden because the planners are worried about dust. This perspective reveals a striking lack of understanding about the environmental realities of a community garden. Dust comes from barren, unmaintained land in any zone, whether it’s front yards or the trails abutting the railroad tracks, not from beds of vegetables. We need to revise our city codes to show residents who add value to the community that we value them, too. If someone wants to sell citrus, vegetables or eggs from their backyard garden, the city should not impose a lengthy, expensive permitting process that makes small-scale agriculture impractical. Here’s my suggestion: Instead of starting with the premise that urban agriculture creates lots of problems that we need to aggressively regulate, let’s begin with the idea that through urban agriculture we have an opportunity to build the kind of community we want to live in. Let’s be creative and practical about encouraging safe, responsible, and productive farming. We could ask: What do land owners want to do with their land? What farming or other outdoor experiences do people who live in En-
cinitas want to have locally? If families want to take their children to see a pair of pygmy goats, pick citrus, or take a class on seed saving, let’s make that possible. If, as a city, we want food to travel fewer miles between producer and consumer and we want more people to experience the joy of pulling a carrot from the loamy soil or plucking a heavy tomato from an earthy-smelling vine, then we need to create the legal and administrative structures to support that vision. I believe neighborhood agriculture should be allowed by right in any zone. It should be okay for me to walk across the street and buy my eggs on Saturday morning from my neighbor. Organic gardens under a certain size should be able to sell during daytime hours. We can require online registration so we know where food comes from and to ensure safe agricultural practices, but other than that, no minor use permits, no traffic mitigation studies, no expensive fees. Just to be clear, I’m not advocating uses that look like Knott’s Berry Farm. That’s a different story. But there are a range of uses between a backyard garden and Knott’s Berry Farm, and I think our city codes should recognize and allow for varying degrees of use of one’s land, instead of a rigid and under inclusive standard. Ultimately, urban agriculture creates food independence, promotes consciousness around healthy eating and, and just as important, provides us with an ever-dwindling oasis of nature in an increasingly developed environment that is a joy to experience. We need to be honest about what is at stake. As a city we can remove barriers and allow our agriculture properties to evolve by providing a way for orchards, gardens and greenhouse sites to make money using their land to grow. Or, we can make it difficult, expensive, and so administratively cumbersome that we virtually guarantee the extinction of our heritage as a flower, fruit, and food-producing city. Those lands will then become subdivisions. What do you want for Encinitas? Let your city council know at council@ encinitasca.gov. Catherine Blakespear is an Encinitas City Council candidate in November 2014 and attorney representing Coral Tree Farm pro bono in the owner’s dispute with the city regarding whether the farm has lost the grandfathered “right to farm” on the family’s historic avocado and fruit orchard.
est court has been dominated by leftovers from two of its more conservative governors. That’s about to change, as two retirements will soon let Gov. Jerry Brown change the entire tone of the California Supreme Court, long a bastion of pro-business, anti-consumer decisions and sometimes a brake on movements toward same-sex marriage, loose regulation of marijuana and other social issues dear to activists on the left. The first of the court’s old guard to go was Justice Joyce L. Kennard, appointed in 1989 as the second term of Gov. George Deukmejian wound down. Never a leader of the right, for a quarter-century Kennard could usually be counted on as a pro-business vote in almost every case. She resigned last spring and Brown has yet to name a replacement. Next to leave will be fellow Deukmejian appointee Marvin R. Baxter, known for most of the past 20 years as the California court’s most conservative member. He resigned in late spring, effective when his term ends next January. With 2011 Brown appointee Godwin Liu already the leading liberal in the state judiciary, this means that within six months, California’s top court should feature three Brown choices, the most for any governor since Deukmejian got to name six during his eight years in office. Three Deukmejian appointments, however, came after he spearheaded a move to vote three previous Brown-appointed justices off the court when their terms came up for yes-or-no retention votes in 1986. Deukmejian claimed all — especially former Chief Justice Rose Bird — were soft on crime. The products of that Deukmejian move are long gone, but the tough sentencing laws he pushed, with okays from justices he appointed — including one of his former law partners — are a root cause of today’s prison overcrowding crisis. Academic studies are inconclusive on whether they also reduced violent crime. Now Brown gets another chance. He turned to Liu soon after returning to power in Sacramento, not long after Liu was denied a slot on the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals because some Republican U.S. senators objected to his academic writings excoriating the records of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Samuel Alito and John Roberts. With a moderately conservative majority on the California court, his influence has not yet been strong. That could change. Some legal experts believe Liu, along with Brown’s new
appointees, may quickly form a court majority with the moderate Justice Kathryn Werdegar, the first of ex-Gov. Pete Wilson’s two remaining state Supreme Court appointees. This depends on two eventualities: First, Brown has given no clue about who his next high court appointee will be. There has been strong talk of a Hispanic appointee because Latinos have been unrepresented on the court since Gray Davis appointee Carlos Moreno left in 2011, opening the way for Liu. Moreno is now ambassador to the tiny Central America nation of Belize. Among potential appointees are Thomas Saenz, president and general counsel of the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Stanford University law Prof. Mariano-Florentino
With a moderately conservative majority on the California court, (Liu’s) influence has not yet been strong Cuellar and several federal judges appointed by President Obama. The second eventuality, of course, is that Brown would have to be reelected in November in order to choose Baxter’s successor. Just now, that looks like a lock. Brown netted more than 54 percent of the June primary election vote, and but for a misguided portion of the top two primary law, the 2010 Proposition 14, he would already be reelected. But he must run again this fall, against former banker and Treasury Department executive Neel Kashkari, who drew just over 19 percent of the primary vote. All Republican candidates in that open primary together took only about 35 percent of the vote, barely topping their percentage of registered voters. So chances are Brown will get another crack at appointing a state Supreme Court justice next year. His choice will more than likely come from the same list he’s considering for the current vacancy. The upshot will be a very different court than California has seen since the early 1980s, the last time Brown had something to say about it. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol. com.

Grocery, hobby stores seen as positives for San Marcos Hobby Lobby at center of Supreme Court ruling By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos City Council is expected to finalize lease agreements that will pave the way for the city’s most high-profile retail vacancy to be filled. The council will vote to approve the a 20-year and 10-year lease agreement with WinCo Foods and Hobby Lobby, respectively, to fill the space in the Creekside Marketplace once occupied by Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse, which closed in late 2013. The lease agreement is on the consent calendar, which is usually approved by a single council vote unless a council member or a member of the public asks for a more detailed discussion of the item. City officials said the tenants are both unique additions to the city. “In the case of Hobby Lobby it is a type of tenant that does not exist within the city boundaries,” City senior management analyst Geoffrey Foster said of the arts and crafts store that is similar to Michaels. “WinCo is a unique 24-7
grocery store that will provide additional services to our residents.” WinCo, a 24-hour grocery chain, would fill 91,000 square feet of the 150,000-squarefoot property, and would pay the city $ 875,000 in annual base rent during the first 10 years of the lease and $962,500 years during the final 10 years. Hobby Lobby will pay $768,500 in base rent during years one through five, and
It’s a net positive for the city.” Geoffrey Foster Management Analyst, San Marcos
$ 826,500 during the latter half of the lease. Under these terms, the city will recoup the money it spent on the purchase of the building in about five years. The city spent $ 8 million to purchase the building from Lowe’s and rejected WalMart as a tenant before starting negotiations with the pair of tenants. “It’s a net positive for the city,” said Geoffrey Foster, a management analyst for the city. Foster said the city is able to demand more from the new tenants
than it did from Lowe’s, which paid less than $ 650,000 in rent in 2013, because the city is leasing both the land and the building to the tenants. Hobby Lobby is at the center of a controversial Supreme Court ruling that states certain companies and corporations cannot be required to pay for specific types of contraceptives for their employees. The U.S. government sued the Oklahoma-based company for refusing to provide emergency contraceptives to female employees — a key provision of President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform laws. Hobby Lobby claimed the mandate violated the religious beliefs of the company’s owners, the Green family. The 5-4 ruling, along ideological lines, has sparked debate over religious and reproductive and women’s rights. U.S. Rep Scott Peters (D-San Diego) in a prepared statement called the ruling “hugely disappointing.” A representative of U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista) said Issa had not released a statement on the ruling.
VISTA — The city’s smoking policies now prohibit electronic smoking in public areas and the possession of such devices/ materials by minors, after the City Council voted 4-1 to include revisions to its municipal code’s stance on smoking at its June 24 meeting. The modified ordinances update Vista’s definition of electronic cigarettes and incorporate such synthetic smoking devices into its current regulations, as well as extending prohibitive measures to said devices. Following last October’s adoption of an ordinance amending the city’s municipal code regulation of smoking in public places, as well as at a May 27 meeting this year, Councilman Cody Campbell requested further discussion on the e-cigarette topic by considering amendments to include prohibiting e-cigarette use in public parks/facilities as well as possession by minors. In response, three sections in the Vista Municipal Code were presented before the City Council addressing Campbell’s agenda request. Chapter 8.12 deals with smoking activities in public places; Chapter 8.16 concerns minors’ possession of smoking materials; Chapter 12.08 tackles smoking in and around public parks. During the meeting, Gena Knutson, who manages the Vista Community Clinic’s tobacco control program, mentioned how the aggressive marketing of e-cigarettes affects minors in terms of where they’re sold (in convenience stores, placed where candy, gum, and ice cream are located) and the appealing flavors contained within these products. “Youth are rapidly adopting e-cigarettes,” she said, and as to why, she added, “Flavor is an important product characteristic in determining who is attracted to a product and
the ability to get started on a product.” And some of these flavors include gummy bears, chocolate, cotton candy and cherry. Knutson went on to say that there is no proof of e-cigarettes helping people quit smoking; furthermore, according to the FDA, e-cigarette use has not been approved as an effective means of aiding smokers in their efforts to
We’re going to create another generation of smokers if we don’t take care of this in North County right away.” Janet Asaro Resident, Carlsbad
quit. And no e-cigarette brand has undergone FDA safety evaluations. Janet Asaro, a citizen from Carlsbad, expressed relief at hearing the Vista City Council add e-cigarettes to its smoke-free ordinance, which already includes regular cigarettes. “They advertise to our youth,” she said. “We’re going to create an-
other generation of smokers if we don’t take care of this in North County right away.” A member of the American Lung Association, Debra Kelley, voiced her concerns about the youth not realizing the e-cigarette’s deadly potential due to its attractive flavors marketed towards them. “They might not even know,” she stated, and continued to say that, “they might not even taste the nicotine because of the sweetness.” Kelley continued by mentioning how the number of calls to poison centers has increased from “one a month to over 200a month,” thanks to the introduction of e-cigarettes. Among the four — Mayor Judy Ritter, Deputy Mayor John Aguilera, and Campbell — who voted in favor of adopting the amended ordinances regarding the electronic smoking issue, it was Councilman Dave Cowles that acknowledged the speakers in particular for bringing substantial research and data about e-cigarette smoking to the council’s attention. “We can’t control the overall sale of it,” he said, “but where we can — in our public places and in the way we allow sales — I think we need to do the best we can.”

HAM radio enthusiasts gather for a ‘field day’ By Tony Cagala
SAN MARCOS — Ham radio enthusiasts were literally having a field day. Sifting through static and listening for another voice on the other end, ham radio operators spent two days in a field off of Rancheros Drive, participating in the annual ARRL Field Day event. Greg Gibbs, organizer of the event, said one of the goals was to see how many messages could be sent from their camp to others around the U.S. and Canada. During the two-day event on June 28 and June 29, their group made 776 contacts from cities within the U.S. as far away as Virginia and Florida to Tex-

as, Ohio and Hawaii. They were also able to reach other ham radio operators in Canada. The Field Day event is part fun, but part training, too. Meant to simulate an emergency where all power and communications are down, the event served to highlight that with portable generators communications were still possible by using ham radios. “The fastest way to turn a crisis into a total disaster is to lose communications,” said Allen Pitts
of the ARRL in a press release. “From the tsunami in Japan to tornadoes in Missouri, ham radio provided reliable communication networks in the first critical hours of the events. Because ham radios are not dependent on complex systems, they work when nothing else is available. We need nothing between us but air.” Terry Runyon, a member of the Palomar Amateur Radio Club, said that as people are becoming more addicted to instant communications through
cell phones, ham radios are important because during an emergency, cell phone signals are cut to allow for emergency personnel to communicate, leaving ham radio operators to help spread the word on what’s going on. If the ground shakes, Runyon said, a ham radio operator will be there to report on the damage. He said that law enforcement is also using ham radios as backup communication devices. an Tom Howard, Oceanside resident, has been involved with ham radios since 2007. Howard, who is blind, said he keeps his radio by his bed and is able to talk with people all over the world. In March 2012, the ARRL listed 702,506 ham radio operators in the U.S. and more than 2 million around the world. Getting involved with the radios sounded like something interesting for Brian Tagg, who’s been with the Palomar Amateur Radio Club for three years. He said he didn’t know anything about it when he started, but found out how much there was to it. “It’s a very neat hobby,” Tagg said. The Palomar Amateur Radio Club has more than 300 members, who come from all over San Diego County, Howard said. It was founded in 1936 and meets at the Carlsbad Safety Center the first Wednesday of each month. Visit PalomarARC.org for more information.
the wonderful world of sepsis rocking and rolling under all this bandage. I’m sorely tempted to use the turkey-basting syringe to shoot some alcohol into it. That couldn’t hurt, right? There is no way to anticipate the screaming inconvenience of being limited to one hand. I thought I had a clue because I had been avoiding the use of my painful left thumb, the reason for the not-theleast-bit-glamorous surgery. I didn’t arrange to have someone do my dishes and pour my iced tea and I blame that on denial, at which I am pretty skilled. But there is no denying a club-like wrap around one of your major appendages. I am working all angles, though. From the X-ray of the large screw that now lives in my thumb, I feel great kinship with Wolverine, which has to be cool. The suggestion I like the very best, from a clever friend, is to ask the surgeon to use the big screw as a base for a full Swiss Army knife set of attachments. Here, let me open that bottle for you! You’d like that fish filleted? Just give me a minute. I think I’ll have to just settle for being able to open a jar again, and that will be bliss.

I can see the nurses scowling at me and my hand surgeon tut-tutting. But as I try to type, use a knife or fork, wash my hands or any other normal activity requiring two hands, I am embarrassed at every turn. I prefer to tell inquirers that I broke my hand in a really awesome bar fight. The tedious truth is I had an arthritic knuckle on my left thumb fused. I have been reveling in the sympathy, because the bandage /cast looks gnarly. However, it has caused me to become an even bigger klutz. I want my hand back. Now. No, Yesterday. I managed to keep the cumbersome beast on my left hand intact and dry for 10 whole days, which was not easy. I guess I got overconfident. struggling While to wash my hands with great care, I tipped it the wrong way or Jean Gillette is a freesomething, only to find lance writer who found things a bit damp. that wearing an arm cast I used the hairdryer makes her claustrophoon it until I almost set bic as well as cranky. the gauze on fire.

College expands speech and language center SAN MARCOS — California State University at San Marcos’ new Speech-Language Clinic will celebrate its grand opening with an open house and tours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 7 at 135 Vallecitos De Oro, Suite D. The center will provide speech and language therapy services for adults who are survivors of a stroke, traumatic brain injury and other illnesses that cause communication and swallowing disorders. These services will benefit North County residents, as they fill
the need for continued speech-language treatment once insurance services run out. The clinic, which allows students in the master of arts option in communicative sciences and disorders program to gain real-world experience with patients, has been operating out of a converted dorm room on campus for the past five years. The new facility will be 1,600 square feet and will feature cameras in the treatment rooms that will allow observation of student-patient interactions.

Council approves EIR Cities along state Route 78 corridor chip in $23,000 each for regional marketing for El Caballo Park By Promise Yee
By Ellen Wright
ESCONDIDO — The proposed 8-acre equestrian El Caballo Park is one step closer to becoming a reality. On June 18, the Escondido City Council approved the use of $40,000 for an Environmental Impact Report during the 2014-15 fiscal year. The report will make it possible to begin building the park, located across from the Caballo Trail Head at 3410 Valley Center Road, once enough money has been raised. “It is not a true project until the EIR is completed,” said Library and Community Services Director Loretta McKinney. The city approved the budgeting for the report as part of the 2014-15 fiscal year in order to set into motion the process of creating the park. The piece of land has been the subject of debate between the city and residents since 2011, when the city originally planned to use the recreational space as a water treatment and distribution facility. The city planned to build on the site but the Council decided not to after learning the site would cost $6 million to develop. The project still has a long way to go until it is completed. The fundraising for the park will be in the hands of the community, said McK-
inney. The nonprofit group El Caballo Conservancy was established in March 2013 to help develop the land as a unique public park focused on equestrian services, according to their website. They are asking the community for donations to raise enough money to build on the site. The city funded the drafting of a master plan for the park by Wynn-Smith Landscape Architecture, Inc. The estimated cost of the park is $10 million. The park will be built in phases so building can begin earlier than the entire funding is raised. The plan includes arenas, bull corrals, pens, bleachers, a bandstand and more. The land has been in use for over four decades by the Charros de Escondido, who lease it from the city and built an arena on the property. The Conservancy is celebrating their accomplishments July 27 on the site of the proposed future park near the Escondido Humane Society off of East Valley Parkway at Bevin Drive. The event, which takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. will feature pony rides, horsemanship demonstrations, equine therapy, entertainment and a food truck.
REGION — Cities along the state Route 78 corridor are banking on regional marketing to attract more businesses to North County. Oceanside approved $23,000 for annual regional marketing on June 25. The cities of Carlsbad, Vista, and Escondido have also approved funds, and San Marcos will OK funds in July. Once San Marcos is officially on board, a regional logo and campaign will be launched to attract out of area businesses. Cities will continue their own marketing, but regional efforts will highlight the collective resources cities share. This includes regional workers, colleges and universities, and housing. Another big plus North County has to offer to businesses is available land for development, and empty buildings to set up shop. “More businesses within San Diego County are looking for an alternative,” Steve Jepsen, Oceanside city manager, said. “We want them to be aware of the assets North County has to offer.” Businesses will bring in additional revenues and jobs, and change North County sprawling bedroom communities into one collective region to live, work
and play. Tracey Bohlen, Oceanside economic development manager, said regional visioning is the new economic development thinking. “It’s very attractive to companies,” Bohlen said. Oceanside set aside $35,000 in February for regional marketing efforts. The approved $23,000 out of those funds will get first year marketing efforts started. The remainder of set aside funds will be allocated to future regional marketing expenses.
The marketing campaign by San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation will begin when all cities have signed on. Services will include material development, target audience selection, ad placement, and aid in business recruitment. The campaign is anticipated to explode with a website, materials, and kick off celebration by the end of summer. Collaborative efforts to develop a regional brand have been going on for two years.
A logo has been designed by North Star under the direction of North County city economic directors, mayors and city managers, but will be kept under wraps until the campaign kick off. “It will be July or August until we roll it out to the world,” Bohlen said. “It’s really fresh. It’s a really good interpretation of our area.” Oceanside City Council will get a first look at the logo June 30, prior to the regional marketing kick off date.

er on his property. John Signorino, who served as spokesman for the group at Monday’s meeting, repeatedly pointed to the cell-tower issue in their neighborhood, which he said was the “UNICEF poster child for everything wrong with the ordinance.” He said the proposed ordinance, by virtue of its tower-to-acreage standards, would allow the property owner to seek a third tower on the property in question. He also said that ordinance did not require the city to seek a third-party analysis of the wireless companies’ technical data. Signorino’s strongest criticism, however, was that the ordinance did not set a minimum distance between cell towers and homes and did not mandate wireless companies to install newer, smaller, less intrusive tower technology. ordinance “The doesn’t do it,” Signorino said repeatedly throughout his 15-minute presentation to the council. Signorino pointed to Irvine and Calabasas’ ordinance as examples of one with distance requirements. City staff, however, would later say that Irvine’s ordinance only mandates the distance between towers and Calabasas’

but nobody’s really spent much time studying them, he said. What they know a lot about is their physiology — what isn’t so well known is how they live in the wild, and how they live with humans and how giraffe and humans interact, O’Connor added. What he did note, however, was the skittishness of the giraffe in the wild as the result of falling prey to poachers. “The main challenges facing giraffe are most recently poaching,” O’Connor said. “And they’re poached for several reasons: one reason is for meat, for food. Unfortunately, in the wild, giraffe are quite easy to kill,” he said. “Because sometimes initially they’ll just stop and stare at you, so one bullet can take them out, as opposed to an elephant or something where it’s harder. And you get quite a lot of meat for that one bullet…. “If you’re just trying to get some protein for your family, if you’re thinking about the species you could go after…you can see why that’s attractive.” While O’Connor said that the numbers on certain species, such as the Reticulated giraffe are uncertain, researchers think they’ve declined from about 28,000 in the year 2000 to about 5,000 today. “So if that trend continues, that subspecies will be extinct by 2019,” O’Connor said.
ly ban wireless facilities in areas where a coverage gap exists or would ban certain tower technologies outright, said Jonathan Kramer, a wireless law expert contracted by the city to develop the ordinance. The proposed ordinance, Kramer said, goes as far as the city can within the current constraints of the law. Wireless companies, however, said they believed the ordinance goes beyond the scope of federal law. Representatives from Verizon, AT&T and a company that develops the smaller tower technology
said some of the requirements, including annual reports to the city’s planning department and the requirement for companies to prove the need to install sites in agricultural and residential sites, would be unnecessarily costly and time-consuming. Milan Brandon, whose father Jeff Brandon is the property owner whose cell towers sparked the controversy, said the proposed rules would hamper the city’s ability to provide quality wireless coverage to residents. “This ordinance would put our city at an economic disadvantage to other cities…and hinder progress,” Brandon said. “We must not delay the wireless buildout of our city any longer.” “We don’t want to see a government taking of rights from the carriers,” said John Osborne, AT&T’s external affairs director. AT&T sent a letter to the city last week that outlined 47 points of contention the wireless carrier has with the proposed ordinance. After the meeting, Osborne said the fact that both sides opposed the city’s rules didn’t necessarily mean that the ordinance was a good compromise. “We still believe the ordinance violates AT&T’s rights and ability to place infrastructure as designed to be placed where it is allowed under federal law,” Osborne said.
That’s why now, working with the institute, O’Connor and others are trying to start a program addressing giraffe conservation. “People don’t really think about giraffe as a conservation issue,” he said. “People don’t even know that there are nine different types of giraffe…and some of the subspecies of giraffe are in real trouble. The West African giraffe only has 200 left in the wild; the Nubian giraffe may already be extinct. So this World Giraffe Day initiative, I think, is fantastic.” June 21 marked the first ever World Giraffe Day. It’s an initiative started by the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, which, according to its website, is meant to “raise awareness and shed light on the challenges they (giraffe) face in the wild.” What initially brought O’Connor to study giraffe was his interest in how they were able to coexist with cattle and goats, especially as it pertained to food sources. Giraffe feed up so high, O’Connor explained, adding that cattle and goats feed so low that their food sources don’t overlap. Yet, he found that there was a shift in how people were relying on the traditional livelihood of pastoralism. “And that is where pastoralists keep cattle and goats and everyday they’ll take them out into the wild for grazing,” he said. But they’re now switching to camels as a new livestock species, perhaps, he said, because of climate chaos and other reasons.
That’s something they’ve never done before, O’Connor said, but noting that camel milk is now becoming a new health trend. And the camels will eat anything — they’ll move through an area leaving the whole of the vegetation denuded, and with camels being so big they can get into that zone of the giraffe. Most worrying, O’Connor said, was a myth being perpetuated, which said that eating giraffe brains or bone marrow could protect people from HIV and AIDS. “So they’re being slaughtered for that reason, and it’s completely ineffectual,” he added. The giraffe conservation program is hoped to be in place over the next 12 months. Some of the ongoing conservation efforts include working with the communities that overlap with giraffe. One of their main goals for helping to implement conservation efforts with those communities is not to be viewed as outsiders. “We can’t just say, ‘Stop killing giraffe,’ or, ‘Stop using the wood in the forest,’ without giving them an alternative,” he said. It’s about building relationships with the communities and with the herders, which usually entails going out on walks with them, understanding what their perceptions of the animals are. One of the best ways to help a species is to bring awareness, said O’Connor. “And that is what World Giraffe Day is going to do,” he added.

A slice of France arrives in Leucadia
is known for serving just steak frites and a modest selection of desserts. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it, steak and French fries with a simple sauce. Love it. Alexandra starting working in restaurants
early on during her summer breaks from school. She started at 16 and when she was 20 moved to New York and worked in many different types of restaurants including French, Italian along with some catering. Paris and New York are two great places to cut your culinary chops and so when Alexandra and her husband decided to open their own place, they had plenty
of experience to fall back on. She made the move to California three years ago and settled in Encinitas for all of the same reasons that most of us end up here. When the time came to open their own restaurant, they were looking for a small place on the 101 and found a nice little corner spot in the heart of Leucadia. To Alexandra, making food becomes an art when you combine passion and great ingredients â&#x20AC;&#x201D; something exceptional is sure to result. Based on what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sampled, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say she is staying true to that philosophy. Most everything at the French Corner is made in house except for the bread that they source from a reputable French baker. I can attest to the quality of the bread, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very good. Speaking of the bread, my favorites at French Corner are the baguette
aving made several trips to the south of France on business trips in the past, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve developed a passion for the cuisine and culture. Sure, the fine dining was amazing, but it was the simple pleasures found in the bakeries and cafes that I still crave on a regular basis. With the addition of the French Corner Parisian Bakery & CafĂŠ in Leucadia, I am a very happy plate licker these days. The French Corner is owned by Alexandra Palombi-Long, who is originally from Paris, France. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a good thing when the owner grew up surrounded by the cuisine she is preparing. You may have seen Alexandra at the Leucadia Farmers Market over the past year awaiting her new Coast Highway location to be ready for her venture. As with many French people, food was everything for Alexandra growing up, and she remembers being active in the kitchen with her mom at a very early age. She claims her momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for cooking as an early influence. One of her early restaurant memories in Paris was eating at the famous lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Entrecote, which
sandwich and baguette breakfast sandwich. Going back to my time in France, I was amazed at how something so simple tasted so good. The jambon-fromage is my go-to and I admit I will be adding this to my weekly lunch schedule. By the way, that fancy sounding name translates literally into ham and cheese on a French baguette. Gruyere cheese, butter, and the optional cornichon pickle and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. Of course the quality of the baguette plays a huge part in this simple sandwich, and the French Corner has that covered as I mentioned. This sandwich is so simple, yet with the right ingredients, is an elegant alternative to the overthought sandwiches that are common amongst restaurants looking for a differentiator. Of course itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all about the baguettes. French Corner offers quiche, frittata, spinach soufflĂŠs, omelets, crepes, and other seasonal savory specials.

A couples’ infertility struggle leads to helping others By Christina Macone-Greene
CARLSBAD — Having a baby may not be so easy for some couples. According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 7 million Americans deal with infertility every day. Stephanie and Mario Caballero struggled with infertility for years, resulting in Stephanie having to undergo 10 artificial inseminations, surgeries, 13 in vitro fertilizations, and miscarriages. The dream of parenthood faded with each attempt, but new hope emerged when Stephanie’s cousin became her surrogate and gave birth to their twins. Today, the twins are 12. It was the heartache of infertility and ultimately realizing the different options for parenthood, which inspired Stephanie, who is also an attorney, to open Extraordinary Conceptions in 2005. Stephanie’s husband, Mario, joined the company a year later serving as executive director. In under a decade, Extraordinary Conceptions, headquartered in Carlsbad, has transformed into an international agency which matches surrogates and egg donors to couples and individuals, also known as “intended parents.” Stephanie admits she did not have a specific vision when she founded her company. “The goal that Mario and I both did have, though, was to help as many people have a baby wherever they were and to see the joy on their faces,” Stephanie said. “To help people in the U.S.A., China, France, Germany or even Italy — to help someone have a baby is the best job ever.” Stephanie wants people to know that there is no average couple that comes to them for help. While numerous issues cause infertility, others may face it due to cancer treatments and even those born without a uterus.
vitro fertilization after the age of 40,” he said. Mario continued, “Some counties also have limitations about having a child if someone is in a wheelchair, specific disease and restrictive policies, and where surrogacy is banned.” Because of this, foreign couples travel to the U.S. “They especially come to California where surrogacy is legal and legitimate to have a child; and, to have the name of the clients on the birth certificate the moment their child takes its first breath,” Mario said. Stephanie said when

And Extraordinary Conceptions also helps gay couples that yearn to be parents. For Mario, who was by his wife’s side during eight years of infertility, the obvious emotional frustrations were also punctuated by the changing of doctors and not receiving the right information. “It seemed that people were more interested in our wallets than helping us and we learned a lot over those years,” Mario said. Invariably, this helped Mario and Stephanie fine-tune Extraordinary Conceptions to become a company of fairness and compassion. “What this company does is educate potential clients on all the different roads as far as egg donation and surrogacy to achieve fertility,” he said. According to Mario,
since Extraordinary Conceptions opened its doors, for the first initial years they helped five to 10 couples per month. Now, they average 20 to 30 couples every month. Mario went on to say they have expanded internationally for many years and it continues to be a focus. “There are people in so many countries that are not allowed to do in
their focus went international they wanted to make sure they had people on staff who spoke various languages such as French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese. Be it a phone call or “intended parents” flying thousands of miles to the United States, this was a comforting welcome. Stephanie attributes their business growth because it comes from the heart. After the grieving process of infertility, Stephanie said, couples come to realize there are other options for becoming parents. “It may not have been
the way you thought or wanted — but if you really want it, you can get it,” she said. Mario said a common misconception he runs into is people thinking a business like theirs is focused on financial gains. Not for Extraordinary Conceptions, Mario said, because their policy is helping the client first. “Even if clients decide not to work with us after we invested hundreds of hours, just educating them toward making the right choice is our goal,” Mario said. “Everyone deserves the love of a child and no one should be denied that right.”

Military helps TERI build center SAN MARCOS — TERI (Training, Education, Research & Innovation), a center for autism and special needs, has partnered with the Military’s Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) program to build a new “Campus of Life” in San Marcos. The Military’s special IRT program works to provide real-world training opportunities for service members and units to prepare them for their deployment missions while supporting the needs of underserved communities, including individuals with special needs and autism. The IRT’s commitment to TERI includes skilled labor and equipment to train and build the “Campus of Life.” The value of the IRT labor & equipment is estimated at between 33 percent and 50 percent of total construction costs for the new facility. At the new campus, 555 Dear Springs Road, the groups launched a campaign titled, “Building Bridges: Connecting Into
the Minds of Children, Adults, with Autism and Special Needs.” In order to complete construction of the entire campus, 111,000 square feet on 20 acres, TERI will rely on donations from individuals, the community, and foundations for the $30 million project. Its vision is to begin grading/construction in Spring 2015 and complete the campus in 2017. “TERI’s new campus is vital for us to continue offering services that truly impact and improve the quality of life for people with special needs,” said Cheryl Kilmer, TERI CEO and founder. Founded in 1980, TERI, Inc. is a private, non-profit whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children, adults and seniors with autism, developmental disabilities and learning disabilities, specializing in serving individuals who have needs, which cannot be met by other existing programs.

O’side council denies zoning request By Promise Yee
denied zoning on June 25. OCEANSIDE — After George Sadler, ownmoving statements for and er of Nature’s Leaf Colagainst medical marijuana lective, made the request dispensaries, City Council for a zoning change. The dispensary has been operating in Oceanside during ongoing litigations with the city to close it. Oceanside’s present zoning laws explicitly state that businesses delivering, storing and selling medical marijuana are not allowed. During the meeting patients spoke about the benefits of using medical marijuana, and the difficulty in finding reliable and safe access to the drug without the help of city zoning. Vey Linville suffers from emphysema. Doctors recommended he have a double lung transplant. He did not get the transplant, but did begin using medical marijuana. Linville said he has gotten increasingly healthier. He is a board member of the San Diego Chapter of Americans for Safe Access. “It offends me to be treated like a criminal,” Linville said. “We’re not doing anything illegal. We don’t want to do anything illegal. Just give us a tiny place to stand.” Other supporters said regulations are needed to ensure safe access. Frank Smith said he is interested in opening a medical marijuana distribution center in Oceanside. He urged the City Council to set the bar high with strict regulations that prompt professionalism. Joshua Hamlin attorney for Nature’s Leaf Collective said city regulations would curtail problems of theft, and deny access to minors. “Robberies do not correspond to regulated dispensaries,” Hamlin said. “City regulations that allow access is the way to go.” Those in opposition
said it is not the right time to allow dispensaries. Federal pharmaceutical standards need to be established first. Complaints were made that anybody can obtain a doctor’s recommendation letter for medical marijuana. A speaker said she worked next to a pot shop, and nearby businesses suffered because of the smoke and unruly customers. Ray Pearson, president of North Coastal Prevention Coalition, said it’s about keeping marijuana away from kids by decreasing its availability. “Until the federal government regulates the substance for medical reasons, I’m not able to support it,” Pearson said. The City Council unanimously agreed dispensaries are not a business fit. Mayor Jim Wood said he was uncomfortable the zoning change was requested by a for-profit business. EsCouncilwoman ther Sanchez said she was moved by patients’ statements, but feels dispensaries cannot be allowed until there are medical standards that identify patients who genuinely need the drug. “This is not a business that would be positive with the laws as it is today,” Sanchez said. “I don’t believe any of us are here to judge. We’re focusing on marijuana, the drug.” The Planning Commission gave the go ahead to consider a zoning change to allow dispensaries in a 3-2-2 vote in May, with two commissioners absent. City Council’s decision not to make a zoning change means Nature’s Leaf Collective must close its doors. City staff acknowledged there are other dispensaries operating in the city, and code enforcement and police will continue to shut them down.

Words of wisdom from an American hero By Cpl. Tyler Viglione
REGION — The Medal of Honor is the nation’s highest military honor awarded for personal acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. On June 19, President Obama presented the award to the eighth living recipient. Cpl. William K. Carpenter (retired) is the newest recipient of the Medal of Honor for his selfless acts during Operation Enduring Freedom in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in 2010.
According to his citation, “Lance Corporal Carpenter and a fellow Marine were manning a rooftop security position on the perimeter of Patrol Base Dakota when the enemy initiated a daylight attack with hand grenades, one of which landed inside their sandbagged position. Without hesitation and Kyle Carpenter with complete disregard Medal of Honor recipient for his own safety, Lance Corporal Carpenter moved towards the grenade in an low Marine from the deadattempt to shield his fel- ly blast.

nade detonated, his body absorbed the brunt of the blast, severely wounding him, but saving the life of his fellow Marine.” Carpenter suffered severe head injuries, a collapsed right lung, multiple facial fractures, the loss of a third of his lower jaw and fragment injuries to his arms and legs. Just days after he was awarded the Medal of Honor, Carpenter flew to Southern California and attended events and got the chance to speak with Marines at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif. After his visit was complete, he traveled to Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego to eat lunch at Duncan Hall and speak with Marines aboard depot. The young corporal had some words of wisdom to pass on to present and future Marines. “Appreciate what you have because you are a part of the best military in the world,” said Carpenter. “Whenever you are going through a tough time just know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and take advantage of that and do the best you can.” Carpenter explained to his audience that he loved being a Marine and being around them. “I wear this medal for all of you, not for my benefit,” said Carpenter. “Everything I do I want to make past generations and all of you proud.” While aboard the depot, Carpenter also visited the base barber shop to freshen up his look and took a tour of the Command Museum, which is where a copy of his citation will be placed. Behind the scenes, he is just a typical 24-year-old guy who enjoys staying active and enjoying the small things in life. “I like to do anything that comes my way,” said Carpenter, a native of Jackson, Miss. He explained that he loves to take part in activities such as skydiving, that

deliver a thrill or adrenaline rush. Carpenter is a full-time student at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and is looking forward to starting his sophomore year in the fall. “I love school,” said Carpenter. “It is excellent and everybody is really respectful and treats me well.” Carpenter has plans to travel the world, which was inspired by his favorite author, Dan Brown. “Traveling is on the top of my priority list,” said Carpenter. “My number one place I want to go is Italy.” Carpenter explained that he had read about Italy’s history and it is a place he has always wanted to go. As far as other travel, he notes he also wants to
visit historical World War II battle sites and see where many men had fought to give Americans the freedoms they have today. One thing that Carpenter stressed is that he wants to help people. He is a motivational speaker and hopes to help individuals by spreading awareness about the Marine Corps and how professional and excellent they are, he explained. Carpenter is scheduled to spend his summer traveling the United States speaking on television shows and at different events spreading his message throughout the country. “It took me getting blown up to realize how incredible this life is that we have,” said Carpenter. “Go out there and experience everything you can, while you can.”

Exciting new charter school enrolling now in North County SAN MARCOS —Taylion San Diego Academy announces the opening of its newest location in San Marcos, offering a variety of unique and customized classes for students in grades K-12.

Our philosophy is to inspire confidence in a child through our belief that we can make a significant impact with each child by

challenging curriculum different from a tradi-tional class setting. The Taylion program is an option for students K-12, who find that a traditional school setting just isn’t a good fit for them, academically or otherwise (bullies, etc.). A large number of their student population is high school students. “Taylion San Diego Academy provides students a unique holistic learning environment that prepares them for the 21st century
empowering all students to better understand themselves as individuals.” Taylion offers three sep-arate learning environments for students: an online component, a home-school program, and a blended program that includes independent study and classroom options along with online components. School officials say the program offers individualized learning, a safe environment with less distraction, higher parent involvement, credit recovery,
credit acceleration, greater access to new educational resources, and unparalleled flexibility in utilizing various instructional delivery methods based on the particular student’s learning style. “We are thrilled to be opening a school here in San Diego, offering a blended learning solution which is state of the art, but we are also very proud of our independent study and home schooling options as well,” said Timothy A. Smith, president of the school’s parent company, Learning Matters Educational Group. “We feel that we are going to be able to serve our students in the San Diego area very well with highly qualified teachers —dynamic teachers that are going to be able to personalize instruction for each child.” Taylion belongs to a group of charter schools that began in Arizona in 1996. The San Marcos campus is located at 100 N. Rancho Santa Fe Rd. #119, San Marcos, CA 92069.

Academy of Arts and Sciences...
A leader in the frontier of educational options For students who fall behind, AAS can help turn things around with our award winning credit recovery courses. Our curriculum is designed to ensure that students receive credit for what they already know and supports them with dedicated teachers that will build mastery in the areas they need to complete their courses. Our credit recovery courses are available free of charge during the school year and as part of our free summer school as well. Credit recovery courses are available in all core subject areas (Math, English, Science and Social Studies and some elective areas). Academy of Arts and Sciences is a leader in the newest frontier of educational options: online learning. AAS, a leading free public charter school of choice for students in grades K-12, offers a blended (online and on site) customized learning program. Students engage in an exceptional learning experience that blends innovative online learning with critical face-to-face and lab time.

their needs, which is why a key tenant of the Academy of Arts & Sciences philosophy is flexibility,” said CEO Sean McManus. “With this instructional model, on site and off site time can be adjusted to fit individual student needs. The flexibility of blended learning provides choice for students.” The school utilizes cutting edge 21st century curriculum. Students are able to access the curriculum twenty four hours a day, and have the flexibility to participate in a wide variety of events, activities and experiences that enhance the learning experience. AAS also allows students the opportunity to access a wide variety of world language, humanities, media and technology, engineering and robotics, app and game design as part of the rich elective program. Online learning differs from traditional schools in that classes do not take place in a building, but rather at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection
can be found. Because of this, students take courses online with support from their teacher via phone, online Web meetings, and sometimes even face to face. This new way of learning allows the parent to take an active role in the student’s learning and to really become a partner with their child. The parent (or "Learning Coach") keeps the student on track in line with the provided lessons plans. In addition to the online courses, AAS provides plenty of opportunities to connect online and offline with other AAS students and families. The Academy of Arts and Sciences staff is very active in the community and can often be found interacting with families at Beach Clean Up Days, various community festivals, and organized activities that take place at their Learning Centers. An online education offers students the opportunities to learn in a small setting with a course schedule that is tailored to meet their individual learning styles and needs. This unique learning environment meets the needs of all types of learners and offers solutions to many different educational challenges. Many students find that learning in the comfort of their own home allows them be successful in ways never dreamt of before!

Zier feels a draft and couldn’t be happier
sports talk jay paris Whack, whack, whack. It was the sound filling the San Diego State batting cage of baseballs meeting bats. But Tim Zier, the former Escondido High star, longed to hear the ring of his cell phone. Zier and Brad Haynal, his SDSU teammate and best friend, were building calluses by hitting on draft day. The second baseman and catcher were pounding baseballs under the sun while their aspirations were shooting for the moon. The draft was entering its anxious latter rounds and the pair retreated to their comfort zone to preserve their sanity. Disappointment for Zier visited the previous

spring when the draft came and went without his name being called. “It was definitely not enjoyable,’’ Zier said. “I couldn’t watch it this time.’’ Instead of staring at the MLB Network, Zier zeroed in on fastballs and curveballs. But he thirsted for a change up, seeking joy in contrast to last June’s heartache. Suddenly Zier’s cell started vibrating with texts flooding his device. “I said what the heck and gave it a look,’’ Zier said. The messages were different but with the same theme: each one offered congratulations. “I got the call right after that,’’ Zier said. “I was a dream come true.’’ The Phillies selected Zier in the 21st round, and round and round went his emotions. A decision he made years ago — taking baseball over football — paid off. Zier earned 10 athletic letters at Escondido, and that included two phenomenal seasons
with the Cougars when he rushed for 2,201 yards and collected 31 touchdowns. “It was tough to let go of the other sports, especially football,’’ Zier said. “I really had a passion for football. But it’s all coming together now and it looks like I made the right choice.’’ He exits SDSU with a slew of records — most career hits, games and at-bats — and one big distinction — being among the pallbearers for his beloved coach, Tony Gwynn. Zier calls the last month or so “a surreal experience’’ as he turns the page into becoming a professional. Haynal knows the type of player the Phillies are getting in the 5-foot-10, 195-pound Zier, a two-time AllMoutain West selection. “He is gritty, hardnosed and he will give it his best shot,’’ said Haynal, a former Rancho Bernardo High star. What Haynal relinquishes is a roommate and best friend. The two become inseparable at SDSU and that won’t end with Zier playing for the Phillies and Haynal going to the Marlins. “We will always stay close,’’ Haynal said. “He’ll be in my wedding and I’ll be in his.’’ That can wait. What’s important is Zier’s marriage with the Phillies. “They’re getting a guy who will go to work every day and give it everything he has,’’ Zier said. “I’m going to work my tail off every time and play the game I’ve always played. That’s being a blue-collar player and just having fun.’’ But while looking ahead, he seems to exemplify the slogan, “Aztec For Life.’’ “Those are memoTURN TO ZIER ON 27

Clippers’ Chris Paul shares life experiences with area kids By Aaron Burgin
REGION — A 6-foottall man clad in Jordan-brand apparel stood in the center of Alliant International University on Monday afternoon. If you weren’t an NBA fan, you might wonder why a man of such modest stature commanded the attention of the 100 or so young basketball players seated at his feet, hanging on his every word. That man was seven-time NBA All Star point guard Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul, 29, was a guest speaker at the Jared Dudley Camp of Opportunity, a local camp for elite players hosted by Jared Dudley, Paul’s Clippers teammate and a former San Diego Section player of the year at
Horizon High School. Dudley’s camp, in its second year, attracts top middle school and high-school players from across San Diego — including a number from North County — who participate in skill drills and competitive games. It also included several NBA guests, including Phoenix Suns forward P.J. Tucker.

Turning 65 this year? Understand your Medicare Options. Medicare is a great start, but it never was designed to cover everything. For example, it only pays 80 percent for the Medicare allowed amount of covered healthcare expenses. The rest comes out of your own pocket. So, depending on your personal situation, you’ll want to review your choices for getting coverage beyond Original Medicare. At a minimum you will want to have Part D drug plan coverage. Even if you are still working or retired and are covered by your company’s health plan, you are probably paying something in premiums every month. Now that you are about to turn 65, you could get on a Medicare Advantage Plan where the monthly premi-
Original Medicare coverage may not be enough um is $0. Another option would be a Medicare Supplemental Plan that usually has lower premiums than most company insurance plans. Selecting the right coverage can be confusing, and making the right decision might be more complex than you expect. You have a window of opportunity: Three months before your 65th birthday month, the month of your 65th birthday, three months after your 65th birthday month (seven months), where you can not be denied Medicare Insurance. By planning ahead, your Medicare coverage can start on the first day of the month you turn 65. For more information and a no-cost review of your Medicare options, contact: Douglas Kerr, Secure Horizon / United Healthcare Advisor (Lic#0G64783) at (760) 473-7721. Doug@ MedicareInsurance SanDiego.com or online at MedicareInsurance SanDiego.com. He will make sense out of all the “stuff” you have been getting in the mail and help you make informed decisions. Doug Kerr has lived in Encinitas for 28 years, is a Board member of the Encinitas Rotary Club and a member of the Senior Network of Associated Professionals (SNAP).

Don’t let pain and neuropathy hold you back from enjoying life.
Could this be your solution to neuropathy, numbness or pain? Do you have any of the following symptoms? Pins and needles feeling? Numbness in the hands or feet? Tingling or burning sensations? Weakness in the arms or legs? Sharp shooting or burning pains? If so, you may have a condition called Peripheral Neuropathy. Numbness, tingling, and pain are an extremely annoying problem. It may come and go...interrupt your sleep...and even make your arms or legs feel weak at times. Maybe you’ve even been to other doctors and they claim all the tests indicate you should feel fine. More Drugs Are Not The Solution. A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be nec-
essary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure mediations, and anti-depressants — all of which can have serious side effects. My name is Dr. Jeff Listiak. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than eight years. Neuropathy can be caused by Diabetes, Chemotherapy, Toxins, etc. It may also be compounded by poor posture or a degenerating spine stressing the nerves. The good news is that NeuropathyDR™ combination treatments have proven effective in helping patients with these health problems. Here’s what one of my patients had to say:
“I had been feeling very sharp pains in my feet… they just felt like they were on fire. I just couldn’t stand it… every night for the last year or two. I’m so excited today to tell Dr. Jeff that four days in a row I have felt no pain whatsoever.” — Marilyn You could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating and life-disrupting problems. Don’t Miss This Limited Time Offer. It’s time for you to find out if NeuropathyDR™ treatment protocols could be your neuropathy solution. For the next 14 days only, $30 will get you a complete NeuropathyDR™ Analysis that I normally charge $197 for! What does this offer include? Everything. • An in-depth discussion
about your health and wellbeing where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. • A posture, spine, range of motion, and nerve function examination. • A full set of specialized x-rays (if necessary) to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms. • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain and numbness free. • And, if after the thorough analysis we feel we can’t help you, we’ll tell you that right away. Until July 18, 2014 you can get everything I’ve listed here for only $30. So, you’re saving a considerable amount by taking me up on this offer.
Call (760) 230-2949 now. We can get you scheduled for your NeuropathyDR™ Analysis as long as there is an opening before July 18. Our office is located just off Interstate 5 and Encinitas Boulevard. When you call, tell us you’d like to come in for the NeuropathyDR™ Analysis so we can get you on the schedule and make sure you receive proper credit for this special analysis. Sincerely, Dr. Jeff Listiak, D.C. P.S. Remember, you only have until July 18 to reserve an appointment. Why suffer for years in misery? That’s no way to live, not when there could be help for your problem. Take me up on my offer and call today (760) 230-2949.

here’s no doubt about it, Francine Filsinger is having a positive influence on the arts in San Diego. Working in multiple arenas, she creates invariably remarkable results with her widely ranging projects. She makes things happen. Within her first six months as member of the Commission for the Arts of the city of Encinitas, Filsinger had successfully completed the production of the first Encinitas Student Film Festival. Her background in filmmaking and membership on the executive board of directors for the San Diego Filmmakers Association allowed her to rally many award winning associates to work with area high school and college students for a engaging film symposium, culminating weeks later in the screening of the students’ short films and a red carpet awards ceremony.

estly, but the group managed to launch the early versions of what would become a continually more extravagant live show. The commercial breakthrough came with the 1975 concert release, the double LP, “Alive.” Featuring the hit “Rock and Roll All Nite,” it opened the door to a string of hit studio albums that continued through 1979’s “Dynasty.” Simmons, in a separate late-June phone interview, said the group could sense that something was happening by the time of “Alive.” “It wasn’t about the albums,” Simmons said. “It was about the crowds getting bigger and bigger.

hunger to know as much as possible about its celebrities, Stanley doubts that Kiss could have kept the secrecy that came with the makeup and helped create a largerthan-life image for Kiss. “I think that certainly in all walks of life in terms of public figures, there is a certain mystique that is gone because everything is known,” Stanley observed during a mid-June teleconference interview with a group of reporters. “I think mystique is healthy.

Earlier this year, Kiss received a big dose of vindication when the original edition of the band — singer/guitarist Paul Stanley, bassist/ singer Gene Simmons, guitarist Ace Frehley and drummer Peter Criss — were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Today’s edition of Kiss — with guitarist Tommy Thayer having replaced Frehley and Eric Singer on drums — is following up that event with a tour that marks the 40th anniversary of the group. Obviously, Kiss has had a major impact on rock and roll — in terms of albums sold (more than 100 million worldwide), with the group’s groundbreaking pyro-filled stage shows and with the makeup the original band members wore that gave a blueprint for any number of acts (Slipknot, Daft Punk, the Residents) to don masks or other costumes to create stage characters for their bands. The makeup — with Stanley as the starchild, Simmons as the demon, Frehley as the space ace and Criss as the catman — remains perhaps Kiss’ greatest signature, and it helped create a mystique that was a big part of the band’s appeal during the 1970s and very early ‘80s — the group’s peak years as hitmakers.

BRUSH WITH ART CONTINUED FROM 24
Museum of Art, planned for spring 2015. Filsinger spent most of her professional career in international business. She states, “Being exposed to different cultural perspectives helped to equip me to look beyond the surface, to look for a deeper understanding of what was before me. I also found myself having to separate my perceptions from my own cultural biases.” She finds that in her artistic pursuits this approach helps her view a subject with fresh, unconventional and unconstructed vision. A native of Newport, R.I., Filsinger began formal piano training at the tender age of 8. She reflects, “It seems that my entire life has been spent cradled in the arms of artistic expression. I began my adventure as a child studying the classics, falling in love with the piano as the perfect conduit for connecting the child artist with her innermost feelings.” She continues, “It was there that I learned to perceive the world around me through rhythm. I soon discovered rhythm is everywhere. It’s found in sounds, in shapes, in light — all moving in unique patterns that intertwine with one another to tell a story. I’ve pursued that sense of chaotic order

ing first responders. Carlsbad schools now practice drills for tsunamis and plane crashes on campus that specifically involve the districts’ resource officers, said Tim Evanson, the district’s safety coordinator. Each of the districts has also ensured that local emergency personnel also have blueprints and keys to every school. Carlsbad Unified School District has digitally blueprinted each of its schools and painted doorways specific colors so law enforcement knows not only the layout of a given campus but more detailed information including how many exits a certain building has.
ever since.” In considering her artistic evolution, Filsinger tends to think in terms of mediums. Having developed a proficiency in a number of disciplines including music, writing, acting, decorative arts and fine art photography, she finds that they are interdependent, with each discipline giving insight into the others. Filsinger explains, “l Iook at photography as the medium which best allows me to apply the important characteristics of the others for the greatest effect. For example, from my education in classical piano, I learned to look for harmonious and dissonant chord progressions and how their phrasing choices changed the entire feel and perception of the piece.” In her photography, Filsinger most often contemplates a subject for quite some time before actually beginning to photograph it. She muses, “In that quiet interlude, I find the rhythmical message of the subject — how it moves, how it speaks. As I apply light to it, its innermost expression is exposed or hidden, depending upon how I feel the message is to be communicated. Some images shout and others whisper; the light is the conduit of revelation. Very much in the same way I shape the expression of a
musical composition, it is the same end goal but just a different process to achieve it.” A published national and international award winning fine art photographer with credentials too numerous to list, Filsinger relates intimately with her subjects. Oceanside Museum of Art Executive Director Daniel Foster describes Filsinger’s works as “quiet and understated photos that speak loudly.” Her images are simultaneously mysterious and familiar, inviting the viewer to delve deeply into them. Filsinger states, “If my imagery stays with you long after it has left your sight, whispering a message only you can hear, then I will have achieved my purpose.” A selection of Filsinger’s photographic images will be on view July 14 through Aug. 24 in the Zooinitas Exhibit in the Encinitas Library Gallery, with a reception July 26, from 1 to 4 p.m., benefitting Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s Animal Safehouse Program. Learn more about Francine Filsinger and her fine art photography at FrancineFilsingerPhotography.com.
ing traffic, schools, and infrastructure. “We’ve heard an awful lot of claims. Those claims need to be tested,” said Ken Lounsbery, an attorney for the local residents. The City Council unanimously voted in favor of obtaining such a report. The report will be
presented to city council at its July 23 meeting, at which time the initiative will be formally placed on the ballot. “Now we are sending an initiative to the voters,” Mayor Sam Abed said. “It’s not about a few dollars or revenue to the city. This is about the interests of the country club community. Period.”
Many school districts also highlighted the multitude of ways that administrators can reach out to parents and community members with quick information in an emergency via websites, social media, and automatic phone call systems. Walters and Lovely said their districts made use of these communication systems during the recent fires. Moving forward, many of the districts are focusing on enhanced training for school staff. This fall, more Carlsbad administrators will be trained in assessing potential threats to campus safety. Walters added the district is looking to train more school staff on first aid and CPR. Both Lovely and Wal-
ters also said that their districts focus on maintaining heightened awareness at all schools for suspicious activities, including a stranger on campus. They said that their districts offer a number of ways to report concerning activity, including anonymous tip lines. Disagreeing slightly with the Grand Jury report, Escondido Union and other North County districts said that security infrastructure is still a vital part of keep students and staff safe. Walters pointed out that in August, Escondido Union School District’s board will decide whether to put a bond measure on the November ballot that would in part pay for additional safety infrastructure at the district’s schools.

Laura Smith, principal at Casita Elementary, explained that parents have a choice of pathway for their students, which, she added, include either the STEM path or the IB program.

that they are not allowed to talk about this issue,” she stated. Personnel records are exempt from disclosure under California’s Public Records Act because releasing such information “would constitute an unwarranted invasion or personal privacy.” Immediately after his resignation, Coates was placed on paid administrative leave.
He was retained on paid leave until March 12, 2014, exactly one year after he was formally appointed as city manager. While on leave, Coates received his full pay and benefits, including vacation and car allowance, according to his separation agreement. At the time of his resignation, he was earning a $220,500 annual salary.
Smith said of the IB program. “And it’s meant to internationaldevelop ly-minded young people.” Character-education is entwined with being an IB learner, she explained. Smith said the IB program really engages students, and that it’s a lot more interesting, which leads to a lot less discipline problems because there’s more participation. “If you’re bored in class you’re going to start goofing around,” she said. “So their kids are being challenged, they’re active; they’re moving around. And when kids are asking the questions, instead of the teachers asking the questions, they’re a lot more involved.”
Ferreira said it isn’t just the standards when it comes to how the program monitors students’ understanding of the materials. “STAR testing, and we’re moving into Common Core, would just be the knowledge based,” she said. “This is actually working with the whole child, and really working on their social, emotional needs; music and artistic abilities, academic abilities.” Common Core standards are standards, which the schools have had before, Ferreira said. “Common Core is kind of the ‘what.’ These schools will still be meeting those standards, however, IB is how they’ll be teaching it,” she said.
learned both how to be a better point guard and how to plan in case his hoop dreams die. “It was a great experience having Chris Paul there, he knows how to lead his team,” Fenzi said. “A point guard should be the loudest player on the court, and he is. “But I also learned that basketball I just

REMEMBERING ROUTE 395 The 14-foot-by-70-foot mural commissioned by the Vista Village Business Association is at the Lush Coffee and Tea building at North Michigan Avenue and Main Street in Vista. The mural commemorates Vista’s presence along historic 395, which once took travelers from San Diego to Canada, meandering through downtown Vista. The winning design was created by Kait Matthews, owner of the co-op ArtBeat on Main Street gallery. In creating this signature piece, Matthews worked artists Cyndi Kostylo, Mo McGee, Raziah Roushan and Phyllis Swanson. For more information, visit artbeatonmainstreet.com. Courtesy photo

fervor, how crazy the fans were getting. So we weren’t looking at the charts or the numbers or anything like that because remember, we’re playing five and six shows a week… But we did realize that within a year and a half of our debuting, we were playing Anaheim Stadium, headlining. “We knew something was up,” he said. “We don’t have any hit singles, and here we are (in Anaheim) headlining over all sorts of bands who have been around for decades.” Since then there have been albums that bombed (“Music From ‘The Elder’), others that have been hits (“Crazy Nights”), lineup changes, an unmasking that lasted from 1983 to 1996, a reunion of the original lineup and a return of the makeup and several recent arena-filling tours with the current lineup. This set the stage for the band’s induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Hall, though, insisted that only the original band members would be inducted. Stanley and Simmons protested, saying Thayer, Singer and other members who had been in Kiss should also be included. The Hall stood firm, so Stanley and Simmons refused to perform at the induction event — although the original four-

you start together and you celebrate that.” So with induction in the rear view mirror, Stanley, Simmons, Thayer and Singer are doing what they consider far more important than awards — playing live. This summer’s 40th anniversary tour (with Def Leppard as the opener), Stanley promised, will more than live up to past live extravaganzas. “I believe that this is the greatest and really the best stage that we’ve ever had,” Stanley said. “The band is firing on all cylinders, so between that and the fact that we’re psyched up for this and we’re celebrating our 40th year, we’re out there to do a victory lap, although the race isn’t over yet. “There will be more races. But this is a celebration of everything we’ve done until today.”
