REGION — The effects of continued drought conditions throughout the state are set to hit residents in North County in coming weeks — from homeowners to small children — as many water districts are set to make voluntary water-conservation measures mandatory. Olivenhain Water District was among the first local water authorities in the county to activate “Level 2” of its drought response plan, in the wake of the State Water Resources Control Board and the San Diego County Water Authority making similar declarations. Vallecitos and Vista Irrigation Districts are scheduled to vote on activating their Level 2 responses Aug. 6 ; Rincon Del Diablo Water Dis-

CARLSBAD — Mayor Matt Hall announced he will be running for a second term this November. Hall has been in City Council since 1994. He replaced Claude “Bud” Lewis, who served for 24 years as mayor and was Carlsbad’s longest serving mayor. Hall announced his run on the site of what he hopes will become his legacy to Carlsbad. He aims to create a Carlsbad Linear Park beginning across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn Carlsbad Beach near Palomar Airport Road. His vision is a seven-mile park for pedestrians and cyclists that runs all the way to Encinitas. The city already has a Memorandum of Understanding with the state of California Parks Department, which is the first step in formal proceedings for the city to purchase the land. He also hopes to develop the land where the Encina Power Station sits into a public space to be enjoyed by

‘Turf course is good,’ officials say By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Although half of the deaths in the first nine days of racing at the Del Mar Racetrack have occurred on the newly installed turf course — replaced this year primarily for the safety of the riders and horses — officials maintain the track is not to blame. “The turf course is good,” C.P. “Mac” McBride, director of media relations for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, said. “It’s not the cause of horses breaking down. “We have been caught here in very, very unfortunate circumstances,” he added. “Knowledgeable people understand this. There’s a thought that Del Mar is a terrible place, and we’re killing all the horses. That’s not true.” From July 17, when the current race season started, through July 27 eight horses have been put down. Four injuries occurred during races on the new $5 million turf course and one was on the Polytrack. The remaining three were not race related. For example, one horse suffered a heart attack. McBride said none of the riders Crews began installing the new turf course at the Del Mar Racetrack in March. Four of the five race-related injuries in the first nine days of the season occurred during races on the track, but

Merriam Mountain plans receiving mixed reviews By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — The developers behind the second iteration of a controversial North County development unveiled its plans to local residents this month — to mixed reviews. The San Diego-based Newland Corporation, the master-planned community developer behind 4-S Ranch, is proposing a 2,135-unit project on 1,983 acres in the Merriam Mountain area north of San Marcos. The County Board of Supervisors, by a 3-2 vote in March 2010, rejected the previous plan, proposed by Orange County-based Stonegate Development Group, for a 2,600-unit subdivision, citing traffic, fire and density concerns. Officials with Newland said they hope to avoid some of the missteps that led to the previous proposal’s demise. “I believe that Newland’s approach to planning is distinctly different than the prior developer,” said Rita Brandin, Newland’s senior vice president and development director. The current proposal calls for 64 percent of the homes to be single-family units,

with the rest being townhomes, and an 81,000 -square-foot neighborhood-shopping plaza that will include a grocery store that would serve both the new community and neighboring areas such as Hidden Meadows and Twin Oaks. A combined 200 people attended the developer’s outreach meetings July 22 and July 23, at which time it provided the public of information about the proposed development and gave a preliminary timeline of its next steps. Newland anticipates submitting its specific plan amendment application in January 2015, and if everything went according to plan, the first residents could move in as early as 2021. Several people who attended the meeting that were opposed to the Stonegate plan said they see some positive changes in Newland’s proposal — including the outreach itself - but still see some critical issues with the current iteration.

Three seats to be filled in November elections By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — Potential candidates for November’s elections are getting their paperwork in order. Candidate The Nomination and Filing Period began July 14, though only one person has turned in the paperwork as of July 25. Voters will decide on a mayor and two city council members, one from District 1 and another from District 2. The only two who have picked up paperwork for the mayoral spot are current Mayor Sam Abed and Councilwoman Olga Diaz, according to Escondido City Clerk Diane Halverson. Abed is a conservative running for a second term, and Diaz is a liberal democrat. Diaz was originally elected to City Council in 2008 and again in 2012. Her seat is safe this year. Councilman Ed Gallo picked up papers to defend his seat in District 1. He is an independent Real Estate Con-

tractor. Counsuelo Martinez intends to run against Gallo. She is a legal assistant for The American Civil Liberties Union and criticized Gallo for his attempt to stop landlords from renting to illegal immigrants. District 2 voters will have a few more options. Current Councilman John Masson intends to file, alongside Nicole Downey, an accountant, Chad “Shad” Hunziker, owner of Our Planet Recycling and Lynda Rose. Rick Paul, an independent who was a founding member of the Escondido Charitable Foundation, has already filed his paperwork to run in District 2, according to Halverson. The paperwork is due Aug. 8 at 5 p.m. in order for candidates to get their names on the ballots. All potential candidates must get 20 signatures from Escondido registered voters, which are then confirmed by the San Diego County Registrar of Voters.

Residents sue over housing project By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — Two groups of residents representing hundreds of property owners filed a lawsuit against the city in late spring in response to council’s unanimous April 23 approval of a mixed-use affordable housing development on a city-owned parking lot in the 500 block of South Sierra Avenue. “This small parking lot is an important public access area for the beach,” Kiersten Turrell of Save Our Solana Beach Access stated in a July 29 press release. “This project would remove this access site, making it more difficult for members of the public to visit and enjoy this important natural resource. … The City Council has demonstrated no understanding about how people access the beach, the seasonal traffic and parking patterns on South Sierra.” According to the press release, Everett DeLano, an attorney representing the homeowners, notes there are 12 causes of action in the lawsuit, including a violation of the California Environmental Quality Act. The lawsuit also claims the city’s approval was an illegal use of taxpayer funds. DeLano states the site is on land given to the city with a deed restriction that it be used for public

parking. Hitzke Development Corporation has been working with the city for about three years to build a 10unit, mixed-use complex that would satisfy a decades-old legal requirement. Although all cities must provide affordable housing, Solana Beach has been subject to lawsuits since the 1990s after City Council took action that closed a mobile home park. Affordable housing advocates threatened litigation, claiming low-income units had been eliminated. Rather than go to trial, the city entered into what become known as the Perl settlement which, among other things, mandated the replacement of 13 affordable units. Since then three have been provided. The Hitzke proposal is a three-story complex on a 14,721-square-foot lot with three approximately 500-squarefoot one-bedroom units, three two-bedroom townhomes that are 918 to 1,032 square feet, three three-bedroom units ranging from 1,002 to 1,232 square feet and a 1,383-square-foot four bedroom. The existing parking lot has 31 public spaces, all of which would be replaced. Hitzke will also provide the required 18 spaces for the

residential component and another four for the commercial space, which is slated for office use. Residents said they are concerned the replacement spaces will be smaller and underground, making them difficult to access. They also fear the project will result in increased traffic, parking and noise issues and a loss of property values. According to the press release, the lawsuit alleges the city failed to prepare an environmental analysis or consider feasible alternatives with fewer impacts. “Local residents attempted to participate in the process in a meaningful way, but at every turn we were rebuffed,” stated Bill Gifford, president of Seascape Surf Estate Management Association, on whose behalf the lawsuit was filed. “Residents did not get proper notice of many of the meetings and the City made it very difficult to participate in the public process,” Gifford added. City Manager David Ott said city policy is “not to comment on the merits of litigation other than to say the city’s position will be defended vigorously.” But at the April meeting, when the project was approved, City AtTURN TO HOUSING ON A18

Private company takes on San Luis Rey River wetlands mitigation project By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — Most people will never see the 56-acre restoration project along the San Luis Rey River that will move more than 680,000 cubic yards of fill dirt from the floodplain and plant thousands of native trees and bushes. The restored wetlands north of Mission Avenue and east of Melrose Drive will be kept as a private conservation area and be closed to the public. Beneficiaries will be wildlife and the environment. “It’s all about the biology,” Paul Sherman, director of land acquisition

for Wildlands Inc., said. Wildlands Inc. habitat development and land management company is taking on the restoration project. The company bought the wetlands acreage from the Singh family, who have owned the property since 1964 and run a tomato farm and packing facility on adjacent land. The goal of the company is to restore the wetlands, gain state mitigation credits, and sell those credits to future developers who need mitigation credits to move forward with a building project.

Mark Heintz, COO and general counsel for Wildlands Inc., said the credits could be sold to any builder within the San Luis Rey River watershed service area, which is essentially most of San Diego County. Required studies for the restoration project have taken four years to complete. With the Planning Commission’s approval on July 28, Wildlands Inc. will move forward with restoration efforts that will benefit area wildlife and agriculture. The San Luis Rey River channel design and floodplain capacity

will be improved by removing massive amounts of fill dirt. The adjacent agriculture fields and packing facility will benefit by having the dirt added to their sites and raising their elevation. “The existing agriculture fields are the best type of land use for years for come,” Richard Greenbauer, city senior planner, said. Long-term benefits of restoring the wetlands are increased wildlife and improved watershed quality. Planning commissioners said the project is a win-win.

What we don’t know about the drought — Plenty e know W a fair amount

California Focus By Thomas Elias

Letters to the Editor Fire prevention I have been a Carlsbad resident for 38 years and had the pleasure of attending a hike, which terminated immediately adjacent to the burn areas of the recent Poinsettia fire. This hike was sponsored by San Diego Canyonlands along Encinas Creek, adjacent to Palomar Airport Road in Carlsbad on July 26. As part of the outing, deputy fire Marshal Greg Ryan talked with us about the different types of vegetation in the area adjacent to developments and their varying potential for fire damage. It was so informative I found it rather sad that there were only 12 to14 folks on the hike even though 1,000 flyers about the event had been distributed by volunteers to the nearby residents, none of which attended. I hope the home owner’s associations will contact the city fire marshal in the future when planning landscaping, as their decisions could have a profound impact on fire prevention. Kathy Parker, Carlsbad Sheriff Department and response times The newly appointed captain of the San Diego County Sheriff department, Encinitas branch, recently had provided the city of Del Mar’s budget and finance committee with the average response times for the four major types of 911 calls. The response times as stated by the captain appear to be consistent with our neighboring cities including Solano Beach. Priority 1 calls, extreme emergency to life such as serious accidents, airplane crashes and SWAT actions, at approximately 12 minutes. Priority 2 calls, serious felonies in process such as homicide, kidnapping, rape, armed robbery, and residential burglary, at approximately 9.5 minutes. Priority 3 calls, such as

potential risk of injury that is ongoing such as reckless driving, driving under the influence, hit and run property damage, at approximately 14 minutes. Priority 4 calls, occurrences or recent events with less chance of injury or harm such as loud parties, prowler, vandalism, trespassing and burglar alarm, at approximately 42 minutes. The independent consultant hired by the city of Del Mar to evaluate the current sheriff contract reported in late 2013, that the estimated average response using our own police department would be similar to the response times of our fire department at 5 minutes. The consultant also stated that the annual estimated cost of running our own department would be comparable with the current Sheriff department contract at $2 million annually. Under this current fiveyear contract, the Sheriff department provides one deputy 24/7, one traffic officer for 40 hours per week, and one detective for 40 hours per week. Our consultants have estimated that with our own police department we would need up to 19 full and part time employees. The captain has admitted that the Sheriff department is unable to improve these response times significantly based on the way deputies are assigned to patrol. You be the judge. Our community deserves better. Your opinion matters, please contact your city council members at delmar.ca.us Barry Entous, Del Mar Good luck with “That Change Thing” Being a hybrid resident-tourist to Oceanside, I just couldn’t sit back and not comment on the “Mission Avenue Re-do.” Ultimately, the changes may create a significant magnet for tourists. However, this marathon project has likely cost dearly — both to the

city coffers and to the unfortunate merchants along Mission Avenue. My biggest armchair criticism of the project is the allotment of lanes to traffic. One too few! Even the tourist town of Palm Springs, allots three lanes of one-way traffic along it’s main cruising thoroughfare, called South Palm Canyon Drive. I’ll bet Oceanside staff, planners and council fought hard and long, over the number of traffic lanes. Looks like “the lanes” lost. I predict that this shortsightedness will create traffic back-ups to the east--perhaps even to the Interstate 5, during midsummer weekends and holidays. Additionally, did O-staff, consultants, and city fathers, overlook providing three lanes of traffic (one west and two east) on Pier View, east of Coast Highway? Unlike restoring a third lane to Mission Avenue, this is something that can be enacted at any time. The changes to Seagaze Drive appear to be fairly traffic friendly, although the abrupt transition from one-way to two-way traffic at Clementine, will surprise many drivers using the Number one lane. It should be interesting to see how this all pans out for Oceanside. After some intervals of use, say six, 12, and 18 months. Staff would do well to analyze the changes and its effects. G. Lance Johannsen, Carlsbad

about the drought that has now afflicted California for about three years: It has been the driest period since record-keeping began in the 19th Century. If their wells are deep enough, farmers can still pretty much pump all the ground water they like, while homeowners can be fined up to $500 for watering down a walkway. Water use actually rose after Gov. Jerry Brown asked for a voluntary 20 percent cutback. A large seawater desalinating plant will open by 2016 in the north San Diego County city of Carlsbad. Ground has subsided in many parts of the Central Valley as aquifers have been pumped faster than they could be replenished. Weather forecasters predict next winter may be as dry as the last one.

We have no idea how much water lies in most California underground lakes, also known as aquifers

But there remains much that we don’t know, as detailed in the latest issue of Stanford Magazine article by writer Kate Galbraith. It turns out that what we don’t know may be more fundamental than what we do know. For example, because more than 255,000 homes and businesses in 42 communities lack water meters and because of the almost unlimited, unmetered ground water pumping, no one knows just how much water California uses or needs. In Sacramento, scene of the meeting where state regulators this summer decreed there be less watering of lawns all over California, about half the homes and businesses lack water meters. They can use all they like without any financial or legal consequence unless they have the temerity to hose down a walkway or sidewalk.

tol lawn and many others go brown. Drought or not, a vast underground lake beneath most of that area has so far kept water shortages there at bay. Plus, much of the water sprayed onto that valley’s myriad greens and fairways eventually filters back down to the aquifer. But it’s the extent of aquifers in the Central Valley that’s most important to know. As farmers expend tens of thousands of dollars deepening wells to reach the new, lower levels of the aquifers, no one has the foggiest notion how long this can go on. Meanwhile, state law effectively permits farmers, water districts and anyone else with a well to pump all the water they want, the presumption being that water beneath a property belongs to the property owner. Never mind that ground water has no idea who owns it or where property lines may lie. Which can mean that if one well owner pumps excessively, others in the area get left high and dry. Meters, Stanford Magazine says, could fix some of that. “If everyone had a meter on their well and you knew how much everyone was using and you knew what the aquifer levels are, you could sort of calculate everybody’s contribution to aquifer depletion,” Leon Szeptycki, executive director of Stanford University’s Water in the West program told the magazine. “But if you don’t know any of those things, they just become things to fight about.” So ground water regulation bills now wending their way through the Legislature could be vital to planning the state’s water future. So could expanded aerial surveys of the Central Valley’s land formations and levels, which can indicate how much of a region’s ground water has been lost over time. Every other Western state now regulates ground water use. But California operates blindly, and could pay a heavy price if it doesn’t begin sizing up its real situation, since ground water is the usual backup when surface water supplies from aqueducts and reservoirs run low. Yes, conservation is important, but even more vital is information. Right now, California simply doesn’t have enough upon which to base vital decisions that become more urgent with every passing month of drought.

Council members OK specific planor Watermark project By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Without any formal plans or permit applications, council members at the July 21 meeting approved a specific plan process for a proposed development on a vacant lot at the corner of Jimmy Durante Boulevard and San Dieguito Drive. “I think the process has lots of opportunities for public input, plus it (requires) Planning Commission and Design Review Board approval,” Councilman Don Mosier said. “So I think the process will work for this project, and I think putting it in a specific plan process rather than going through four independent review cycles will work better and … moves the project forward a little bit faster.” Property owner Watermark DM LP has expressed interest in building a multifamily development on the approximately 2.3-acre lot. Known as Watermark Del Mar, the project was introduced at a July 2013 workshop and included 54

one- to four-bedroom apart- rentals. Because the parcels ments and townhomes. Seven of the units are slated to are located in the north be classified as affordable commercial zone, several

legislative changes and discretionary permits must be approved before residential units are allowed.

Land use modifications require community plan and local coastal program amendments and a new zoning map. All three actions mandate action by the Planning Commission, City Council and California Coastal Commission and are subject to an environmental review. Also needed are Design Review Board, coastal and floodplain development, conditional use and land conservation permits. Zoning changes can be made using one of two methods. A sequential process would initially create a new zoning chapter that could not contain any deviations or assess public benefits. A specific plan, which creates a special set of development standards for a particular area, encompasses all the legislative actions and regulatory development parameters and allows the public benefit of the project to be addressed. The property owner asked the city to consider

allowing the use of a specific plan. That will require a citizens participation program, an environmental scoping meeting, presentations to the Planning Commission and Design Review Board and at least three public workshops. In addition, the developers have proposed an informal process that would TURN TO WATERMARK ON A18

Council discusses parking solutions in Solana Beach Gaspar

announces run for mayor

By Bianca Kaplanek

SOLANA BEACH — Addressing a parking shortage along Coast Highway 101 and South Cedros Avenue, City Council directed staff at a July 16 special meeting to bring back more details on four proposed solutions that include valet service, shorter time limits for areas with high turnover, rooftop lots and a change in requirements. Council members generally agreed the first two could be implemented fairly easily, although they had some concerns. “I don’t think it should be used in exchange for required parking,” Councilman Mike Nichols said of the valet service. “This is just to provide supplemental parking for existing businesses.” His colleagues agreed and were also amenable to dedicating a few street spots for drop-off and pickup. But there were mixed feelings about using public lots for a private valet service and the city contracting with a provider. “I’d like to avoid that as long as this private arrangement can really function in an effective way,” Councilman Peter Zahn said. If the idea goes forward, it was suggested that it start slowly, perhaps Thursday through Saturday nights. As long as business owners agree, council members support shortening parking times to 20 minutes at a few spaces in front of stores such as UPS where customers are generally in and out quickly. “I think that this absolutely makes sense,” Mayor Tom Campbell said, adding that approval from the California Coastal Commission must be secured before moving forward. He also agreed with Councilman David Zito that the limits must be strictly enforced. “This one will be fun,” Campbell said sarcastically

that come in that start to pick away at these and take them down, we’re going to end up with a streetscape … that may not look like Solana Beach. … I personally don’t want to see that happen.” Campbell said the concept is great but not without problems. “Something like this, in my mind, just pours fuel on the fire,” he said. “I would like to see more restaurants, too, but where are they going to park? “I’ve got some concerns about just making these exceptions and just creating a bigger problem than we have now,” he added. It was suggested that rooftop parking and requirement changes only be offered to a limited number of businesses. But council members and some residents questioned the legality. Resident Tracy Richmond, one of only a few peo-

ENCINITAS — After months of speculation, Encinitas Councilwoman Kristin Gaspar announced she would indeed run for mayor, setting up a potential battle between she and council colleague Tony Kranz. Encinitas voters will elect the city’s first elected mayor Nov. 4 after decades of the position being ceremonious in nature. Gaspar made the announcement on Saturday at the 20th anniversary of Gaspar Doctors of Physical Therapy, where she serves as chief financial officer. “During my first term on the council and as Mayor, I have focused on and voted for projects and services the vast majority of citizens support, such as Moonlight Beach renovations, the Olivenhain Fire Station, completing the Encinitas Community Park and improving the quality of our roads,” Gaspar said in a statement. “My public service experience, strong fiscal record, and business skills make me the most qualified candidate to protect local quality of life.” Kranz, who serves as deputy mayor, is one of four people who have already pulled nomination paperwork for a mayoral run. He allies with the current council majority, which includes Lisa Shaffer and Teresa Barth, who has announced she will

as the rooftop parking discussion began. “I certainly have some concerns about this particular item. My primary concern is if we go down this road it’s really going to, I believe, change the character of some of these business districts. “I do not want to see bigbox buildings built from lot line to lot line to facilitate rooftop parking,” he added. “I’m not saying I wouldn’t consider it but there would have to be a lot of safeguards.” His colleagues had the same concern. Council members Lesa Heebner and Mike Nichols said they would support it on the west side of South Cedros only. “I think it might help with the employee parking as well as patron parking,” Heebner said. As for allowing it on Coast Highway, she said, “There’s an opportunity for new buildings and I wouldn’t want to see them become

large, boxy, bulky buildings that wouldn’t suit the pedestrian nature and scale.” Based on what some other cities have done, Nichols introduced the idea of allowing existing commercial buildings to convert to restaurants without requiring more parking spaces, as is the case now. “Most of the buildings were constructed before Solana Beach became a city, when the current parking standards did not exist,” Nichols said. “Today most buildings are underutilized because of the current restrictions. They prohibit a change in use from office building to restaurant because they can’t add parking. This is a way of finding new life for those buildings. “Part of the character and the urban fabric and the architecture of Solana Beach … is that we have a lot of old buildings,” he said. “That charm has evolved over time and if you have … projects

Zooinitas art raises money for the animal safehouse program By Promise Yee

ENCINITAS — Zooinitas brought together animal-inspired art, adoptable pets and information on the animal safehouse program at its opening reception on July 26. Wildlife paintings, photographs and sculptures by 16 juried in artists lined the Encinitas Library community room gallery, while live painting and dogs ready for adoption filled the adjacent outdoor patio. “I decided I wanted to created something animal related to give back to community,” Cheryl Ehlers, event organizer and artist, said. “I picked the animal safehouse program. It’s unlike any other program in the county with the exceptional far reach it has.” The animal safehouse program accepts pets from domestic violence victims and injured military and elderly who are recovering and unable to take care of their animals. The safehouse provides temporary care for pets while people get back on their feet. More than 75 percent of pets are reunited with their owners. Pet owners who can no longer care for their animals have the option of putting them up for adoption. The safehouse program allows people to recover and move forward with their lives. The program was first formed in 1997 to house pets of domestic violence victims and has expanded on a case-by-case basis to serve military and elderly in need. About 150 animals are cared for through the program each year. There is no charge for services. The idea of the fund-

It’s so beautifully universal.” Many artists donated several paintings to the auction fundraiser that was held during the reception. “There are two pieces I’m donating,” artist Krista Timberlake said. “We’re trying to raise money for the puppies.

Artists being sought out for center’s inaugural contest By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — With “Images from Life” as its theme, the Del Mar Art Center’s inaugural competition is essentially giving San Diego artists a blank canvas to showcase their talents, with entry possibilities limited only by the imagination of the creators … and just a few guidelines. The contest is open to San Diego residents who are 18 and older. Original works in two or three dimensions can be submitted. Jewelry and photography are eligible but film, videos and clothing are not. The cost is $20 per piece and all fees and entries must be received by Oct. 26. The Del Mar Art Center opened in 2000 to increase public exposure to quality art, foster an appreciation of the arts, present art events and demonstrations and provide space for local artists to exhibit their work. In May the gallery moved upstairs to the second level of Computer Man is the symbolic spokesman for the Del Mar Art Center’s inaugural art competition. He will be at the gallery in the Del Mar Plaza for the next few months, with the Del Mar Plaza. a reception set for 5 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 16. Courtesy image The nonprofit organization

traditionally gives back to the community by providing materials, scholarships and funding to area schools. “This time we wanted to give back to the 18 and older crowd,” said Bob Coletti, the center’s vice president, who suggested the art competition. The seven-member DMAC board of directors will serve as jurors. A list of winners will be posted on the center’s website by Nov. 15. Two $250 first-place awards, two $100 second-place awards and six $50 third-place awards will be granted. First-place winners will be shown in the DMAC gallery and works by all winners will be displayed in a 30-day online exhibition at dmacgallery.com. In addition to looking forward to the competition, Coletti said he is proud of the help the art center provides to local artists. Currently the center has about 36 members but it could handle a few more. “We are limited by wall space,” he said, adding that

membership is available only to serious painters, artists and photographers. “Not everyone who applies gets in,” he said.”It’s not just about selling their work. They have to get involved in the community. That’s important to us.” Works by all members are displayed, with exhibits rotated about every three months. Pieces include everything from sculptures and jewelry to mixed media. “And we cover every price point,” Coletti said, from a $5 postcard to a $2,500 sculpture. He said one piece that was on display at the gallery sold for $10,000 about a week after the exhibit was taken down. A reception featuring Computer Man, the symbolic spokesman for the contest who will send an email and talk to visitors, is scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 16. He will remain at the gallery for the next few months. Visit dmacgallery.com for more information about Computer Man, the gallery and the art competition.

Cardiff heading to the dogs By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — For one day a year for the past nine years, Cardiff-bythe-Sea goes to the dogs — literally. The Cardiff 101 Main Street group’s Cardiff Dog Days, set for August 9, is billed as the county’s largest canine-centric event.

An article on Motovoto.com lists Encinitas number 8 on a list of top 10 snobby cities. The ranking was based on such criteria as the amount of performing arts venues, prices of homes and income of its residents. File

Encinitas a snobby city? Article says so By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Encinitas has been called many things, from a beach town to a surfer’s paradise. But, snobby? According to a recent article on Movoto.com, yes. The quirky real-estate blog named Encinitas No. 8 on its list of the “Ten Snobbiest Small Cities in America,” a list that includes such upper-crust communities like Palo Alto, Bethesda, MD, and Laguna Niguel. So, what does Encinitas have that would make it a “snob magnet?” According to the study, a ton of performing and visual arts venues, pricy homes and a population that earns a decent living. Encinitas ranked sixth among the 50 cities listed in terms of performing arts venues per capita and 11th in terms of art galleries per capita and median home price. The household income rank was average, 32nd among the 50 cities included. Despite the explanation of the criteria, a number of Encinitas residents and defenders jumped on

message boards to protect the coastal community’s honor. “The snobs? They are the old money folks in La Jolla & Rancho Santa Fe,” one commenter said. “Encinitas folks will welcome ‘anyone’ with open arms.” “Snobbery is not how I would define any of our communities, or the people in them,” commenter Lorri Greene said. “We are a small beach town, and yes there are a lot of things to do. However, we have some of the most caring, giving people living here.” One city councilwoman also questioned the rationale of the study. “If snobby means lots of arts and a strong economy, then I’m proud to have that designation,” Councilwoman Lisa Shaffer said. “But I don’t equate arts and culture with snobbishness.” But, before residents pull out the pitchforks, the article’s author said, this might be one of the few times where being classified as snobby is a good thing. “The article should have been titled, ‘Best City for Snobs,’” Laura Allan said. “It was focused

on things that snobs would like rather than focusing on the people in the town being jerks. And snobs appreciate the finer things, like art galleries and a good ballet.” “Encinitas in particular is not exactly a bad looking place, it is a gorgeous place,” Allan continued. “People have a lot of pride in their homes and where they live. People are happy to live there and very proud of it.” Councilman Tony Kranz said he is taking the article in stride — there’s no such thing as bad publicity, he said. “If that is how you define snobby,” he said of the article’s methodology, “Then I will take that definition any day.”

scious surreal paintings, had a brief but brilliant career as a fine artist as she increased awareness of the earth’s changing ecology. With technical mastery reminiscent of the Old Masters, she created superbly detailed and darkly humorous admonitions regarding the state of our society and the environment. Due to the labor-intensive nature of her process, Trute’s entire body of work consisted of a mere 35 artworks at the end of her lifetime. Most were created during her decade-long battle with cancer, to which she succumbed in 2011 at age 51. Trute’s work was featured in a retrospective solo exhibition at Oceanside Museum of Art in early 2013. According to OMA’s Executive Director Daniel Foster,

“Trute was one of Oceanside’s most talented artists of all time, and was certainly deserving of applause and acclaim from national and international audiences because of her talent and a focus on content that is important to people of all ages addressing critical issues facing our global context.” Foster adds, “It was a very sad loss to our arts community when Trute passed away several years ago prematurely... but her spirit lives and breathes strong through her amazing body of art and paintings.” Enthusiasts of her work and advocates for the environment will have an op-

Tom Noel and Larry Baza, who hosted a memorial exhibition of her work at Noel-Baza gallery just weeks after her passing, said of Trute, “She was one of the most thoughtful, committed and technically advanced artists we have ever shown. “Jen was at the forefront of a growing group of artists doing their best, using their skills and imaginations to bring awareness to what may prove to be the most important battle our species will ever face.” Synergy Art Foundation’s Executive Director Naomi Nussbaum comments, “Jen was way ahead of her time. She saw and expressed through her painting man’s devastation of nature and its repercussions. Her subject matter was often unpalatable but a brilliant depiction of her vision of the results of our irresponsibility and abuse of our environment.” Trute came relatively

late to fine art, having spent her early adult years as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. Born in Springfield, Mass., she attended Massachusetts College of Art in Boston majoring in painting and graphic design. She freelanced as a graphic designer and illustrator prior to specializing in storyboard and advertising illustration for ad agencies in major markets across the country. Only after relocating to Southern California in the mid-1990s did she begin her serious pursuit of fine art. It has been said that Trute was devoted and meticulous in her craft to the point of obsession. Her art was enriched by her voracious fascination with issues such as human impact on our fragile ecosystem. San Diego Visual Arts Network coordinator Patricia Frischer notes, “Her paintings might look zany and colorful, but like Jen herself, there is a quiet and TURN TO BRUSH WITH ART ON A18

During the 2014 Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival, the Italian short film adaptation of the book “Mordraud” emerged as a finalist in the Science Fiction/ Fantasy category. The audience responded with many intricate questions, both technical and story-related, which signified the likelihood of many readers for author Fabio Scalini and many viewers for director Riccardo Piana. The first in a four-part medieval fantasy saga, “Mordraud” is about the tragic story of three brothers who grow up in a climate dripping with hatred and remorse. Compelled to drown their pasts in a destiny defined by blood and oblivion, they seek revenge on the battlefield. Currently available as an Italian eBook, the English version of “Mordraud” will be published online. I landed an exclusive interview with Fabio Scalini and Riccardo Piana, who were more than happy to discuss the book

and its short film, their Comic-Con experience, their hopeful plans for the “Mordraud” project, and more. First off, Fabio Scalini, congratulations on your novel “Mordraud”; words alone cannot express the magnitude of your incredible imagination in terms of the mythology you’ve established. What inspired you to construct this tragic epic? It’s difficult to say what inspired me, because the story is very, very old. I started to write “Mordraud” when I was around twenty years old, twelve years ago. The story itself is even older than that, but I never had the courage to put it down on paper. I think that my story is original enough to say that it is all my own. How did you (Riccardo Piana) hear of “Mordraud,” and what was it like getting to collaborate with Mr. Scalini? Everything began with me reading the book. I found the story to be original and powerful as a drama that I thought it would be ideal for adapting onto the screen. Fabio and I met, and we began a beautiful friendship as well as a professional relationship, and from there, we worked together and produced the film. It’s been a very long work-in-progress. Fabio, what makes the short film adaptation work is that it makes “Mordraud” faithfully recognizable to readers and astonishingly fascinating to newcomers. Did you find it challenging to reach a creative balance between the two extremes? It was a very difficult job because the book is so long and it’s also part of a longer work, and by its nature, the short film is a TURN TO MORDRAUD ON A18

Comic-Con marks the rise of ‘Gotham’ TV series By Noah S. Lee

The darkness “Gotham” cast over Comic-Con was met with welcoming excitement. Warner Bros. Television treated its attendees to a special DC Entertainment event in Hall H last Saturday night, where the highly anticipated upcoming series “Gotham” made its world premiere. Shadows enveloped the audience as the giant screen positioned above the stage depicted the iconic comic book moment in which Bruce Wayne witnesses his parents’ untimely deaths, following that up with the introduction of the young Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), who vows to catch the killer responsible. Now the parentless Bruce faces a solitary life under the care of his butler, Alfred Pennyworth. From there on out, it’s a perilous police procedural where corruption thrives and rules the city with an iron fist, and the dark, brooding atmosphere is populated with the very persons who will eventually become Batman’s famous adversaries. Gordon, who is paired up with Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), a rougharound-the-edges cop, faces a long battle to fight in his dedication to uphold justice — which will continue to unfold in the weeks to come. Once the screening was over, several cast members and producers from the show made special panel appearances throughout the evening event to talk about the series, ranging from how the idea first formed to personal thoughts on their respective roles. For series creator Bruno Heller (“Rome,” “The Mentalist”), this origin story project was right up his alley; to him, it was only natural that the murder of the Waynes be interwoven with the young Gor-

don’s investigation of that case. And from that inspiration, “Gotham” emerged. “That was the beginning of the thing, and everything followed from there,” he affirmed. If the world premiere was of any indication of this approaching show’s quality, it’s one where the promising potential is the kind that we can definitely look forward to. With its serious tone and fast-paced tension in every corner and back alley, “Gotham” comes alive and lives up to its hype. In fact, it’s easy to think of this not as a television pilot but rather as a film instead, courtesy of the absorbing cinematic feel within its gritty visuals and everlasting suspense. Leading the cast is Ben McKenzie as James Gordon, whose “good cop” approach stands in direct contrast with his “bad cop” partner/mentor of sorts, Harvey Bullock, played by Donal Logue. The on-screen chemistry between the two men is concrete, providing “Gotham” with a guiding force that could prove pivotal in determining the direction of the show. The on-set rapport between the actors is as tangible as the one they share off-set. “Donal and I feel like we’ve known each forever. I worked with his sister on ‘Southland,’” McKenzie remarked. Co-star Logue agreed, saying, “It’s hard not to love Ben.” The opposition is spearheaded by Fish Mooney, a gangster with a formidable charisma about her, thanks to actress Jada Pinkett Smith. For her, getting to participate in the Batman franchise and collaborate with Heller has been, as she put it, “amazing.” In the case of Robin Lord Taylor, his twisted TURN TO GOTHAM ON A16

Amos Lee has seen his career take a welcome step forward with his two most recent albums, 2011’s “Mission Bell” and his fifth studio album, “Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song,” which was released last fall. “Mission Bell” debuted at number one on the “Billboard” magazine album chart and produced a hit single, “Windows are Rolled Down.” The latest album, meanwhile, debuted at number 16 on “Billboard’s” all-genre album chart, hit number seven on the Rock Album chart and spent some four months in the upper tier of the Americana Music Association album chart. But Lee doesn’t sound like someone who dwells on chart numbers or album sales statistics. And asked about his success, his thoughts quickly turned to others who helped make things happen. “It makes me incredibly grateful for the fans that I have,” Lee said in a recent phone interview. “It also takes me to the people who work on my team, like management, agents, all the folks, label people. There are so many people that get their hands dirty working these records and trying to help to dig a foundation and keep it solid and build it up from the ground. I’ve been with a lot of the same people from the beginning. So it means a lot to me to have people on my side to share these things with. To me, it’s as much about sharing these moments as it is about having them.” In fact, making music for Lee is about the songs themselves, and more to the point, what they mean to people who experience them. He sees each album as a chance to renew his relationship with fans and part of a bigger overall objective. “For me, the larger picture is about catalog. It’s about creating a list of songs that you can rely on every night to go into a show with and go I feel great about these songs,” he said. Lee is well on his way to developing that kind of large and formidable song catalog that will enable him to draw fans to his shows for many years to come. He made a big initial splash when his 2005 self-titled debut CD caught on commercially, selling nearly 500,000 copies. Tours followed with the likes of Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Merle Haggard. His next two albums, “Supply and Demand” and “Last Days at the Lodge,” were well received, but they didn’t match the impressive sales of his first CD. Still, Lee was able to solidify his career, and when he turned his attention to “Mission Bell,” he was ready to try something new.

For that album, he brought in Joey Burns of the band Calexico to produce the album and had other members of the group play on the CD. With “Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song,” Lee was ready to change up the recording experience once again. This time, he brought in his touring band to play on the album, worked with a new producer in Jay Joyce and used a different studio - Joyce’s newly constructed studio in Nashville. This change fit with Lee’s overall desire to make recording an album a unique experience shared with a certain group of collaborators. “For me it’s about experiencing that moment, whatever that moment is and appreciating it and respecting it for what it is,” he said. The efforts of all involved produced impressive results. “Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song” finds Lee once again showing his talent for writing spare, acoustic-centered songs with strong melodies and affecting lyrics (“Johnson Blvd.,” ”Still In The Air” and “Dresser Drawer”). But Lee also broadens his musical range with several songs that considerably beef up his sound. “High Water” is the prime example. Its big beat, distorted vocal and electronic touches are something different for Lee, and the treatment works well on this bluesy song. “Stranger,” meanwhile, combines a bit of bluegrass with rock and some big gang vocal parts. ”The Man Who Wants You”

is a tangy rootsy rocker with a soulful edge and vibrant feel. Lee said it’s been fun — and challenging — to create a song set that incorporates new material and has a good flow for the audience. “I think the basic idea that I try to put into the set is to build it to make a shape, try to build a shape for the night,” he said. “And I think some of the (new) songs really translate well live and other songs, we’re

still working on and trying to get the right way for them to fit with everything else so there’s not much overlap between songs and between sections in the set where there’s like a lull or a moment where maybe we’re not as engaged as others. “So I try to keep it fun and ever-changing, not only for the crowd, but for the band because the more that we keep it fresh for ourselves, the more inspired we are.”

Superhero space tale helps end summer film season on high note By Noah S. Lee

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is an undoubtedly funny and exhilarating superhero space tale, and just what we need to finish this year’s summer. Deep within the farthest corners of outer space, a thief named Peter Quill/Star-Lord is targeted by the sinister Ronan after stealing a mysterious orb the latter covets. To evade Ronan and his followers, Quill forms an uneasy alliance with the assassin Gamora, a raccoon thug called Rocket, his tree-like accomplice Groot, and a vengeful warrior named Drax. But once they realize the threat the orb poses to the rest of the galaxy, this band of wanted criminals must make a final attempt to stop their enemy from unleashing destruction upon innocent lives. Now that Earth is crowded these days with so many superheroes, it’s only natural that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) leaves our solar system to set up shop elsewhere. With “Guardians of the Galaxy” poised to open the door to so many future opportunities – and stick around for who knows how long — I think MCU just found what it needs to expand its heroism. Director James Gunn takes the audience on a rousing intergalactic odyssey capable of distanc-

ing itself from what MCU has already achieved. He certainly isn’t lacking in imagination in terms of the otherworldly environments encountered throughout the film, such as the desolate Morag, the Kyln space prison, the populated Xandar, etc. It’s difficult not to admire Gunn’s ability to immerse us in worlds unlike what we’ve seen in previous MCU installments. A major highlight is the soundtrack consisting of various ‘70s and ‘60s songs, thereby helping to convey the film’s quirky, offbeat personality. “Come and Get Your Love,” “Hooked on a Feeling,” “Cherry Bomb,” “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, “Fooled Around and Fell in Love,” and many more exude this immediate connectivity that clicks with the viewer and stays that way until the very end. It’s a clever and amusing means of establishing a sense of cultural nostalgia, and a satisfying treat for those who enjoy music from either time period. Somehow, director Gunn managed to assemble this motley crew of cast members devoid of star power to make them heroes… and succeeds without compromising the heart hidden beneath their misfit exteriors. Chris Pratt brings a relatable sensibility to Peter Quill that meshes well with his character’s cocky, quip-prone self.

Zoe Saldana has never failed to impress viewers with her expressive athleticism, and she continues to uphold that reputation with her Gamora. Dave Bautista proves to be competent in matching his unstoppable momentum with the painful rage swelling within Drax. Vin Diesel is simply impeccable whenever he utters (or bellows) “I am Groot!” and Bradley Cooper emerges triumphant as a crowd-pleasing scene-stealer when conveying Rocket’s fasttalking speech patterns and inner loneliness. As the Kree warlord Ronan, actor Lee Pace

does a good job of radiating a fanatical ferocity through his monstrous actions. Karen Gillan is as deadly with her blades as she is ruthless with her pitch-black eyes as the baldheaded blue assassin Nebula. What’s interesting is how the story blasts off from the start and doesn’t lose its concentration — before, when, and after the Guardians unite. To make things better, the conflict these outlaws and misfits face when contending with Ronan’s agenda matches the enormity of the film’s interstellar surroundings.

I mean, if you want your space adventure to go places, every aspect of its action-packed narrative should be as big as the world it lives in. All the digital effects are, expectedly, of the highest quality; Rocket and Groot win first prize for splendid photorealism. Same applies to the makeup, the obvious examples being Gamora’s green skin, the crimson scars crisscrossing Drax’s body, and the various shades of blue in Ronan and Nebula. As clichéd as this sounds, I believe this film is worthy of the description “visually satisfying” for the right reasons.

The intergalactic blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” features a good balance of euphoric humor, dazzling action, reverent drama, and majestic visuals, and should please Marvel fans looking for something to conclude the summer on a high note.

closed until drought conditions improve. “By closing the splash pads, the city anticipates saving between 8,100- and 12,150 gallons of water per day,” the city said in a news release. “We realize this, during the peak of summer having the splash pads turned off, is something kids aren’t looking forward to, but we also understand need to conserve as much water during this drought period,” San Marcos city spokeswoman Sarah Divan said. Water districts across the region expressed thanks to their residents for their cooperation during the drought conditions. “We sincerely appreciate all of the efforts our customers have taken to conserve, especially after the exceptional efforts they have already implemented after the last drought,” said Vallecitos spokeswoman Lisa Urabe, who provided several suggestions to assist customers with increased conservation efforts. “There are many programs that can help ease the transition into greater water restrictions, such as rebates on rain barrels and replacing turf grass with drought tolerant plants,” she said, directing customers to the website whenindrought.org.

Vista BBQ Classic brings 63 teams to compete Promise Yee

VISTA — On July 25 the three block area of historic downtown Vista was closed to traffic, and barbecue teams were setting up their spaces and firing up their smokers for the next day’s competition. A “meat and greet” was held that evening for spectators to chat with teams before the final focused hours of competition the next day. Sixty-three teams faced off to claim bragging rights to the best-cooked chicken, pork ribs, pork and brisket. Briana Wagner, event coordinator and president of Artist Eye Events, said the barbecue competition draws teams that range from professional chefs to back-yard smoker novices. “Mom and pop teams who do well can beat national teams,” Wagner said. “It’s all over the board.” The competition is anybody’s game, and each team has a strategy to win. Lilia and Ira Pupko make up the two person Hog Heaven Sauces team. They entered for the first time last year and won best brisket. “It was actually surreal,” Lilia Pupko said. “We were hoping to hear our name when they were calling the top 10 down.” Pupko said when the judges announced the fifth runner up her and her husband started to discuss what they may have done wrong, and what to do next time. Then the Hog Heaven Sauces team was called as the first place winner. “The emotions that arose from there are hard to describe,” Pupko said. This year they hope to win again. “Hopes are always high,” Pupko said. “The driving force of competition is to win.” Aaron Black and Cory Brown of the Meat, Inc. team were also getting their meats ready July 25. The Meat, Inc. team usually has between 15 and 20 team members. Most team members serve tastes to spectators following contest judging. The team has been competing for 12 years, and has won California state champion in chicken and pork, and the people’s choice award at the Vista BBQ Classic. “We have a blog we put everything on and have fun with it,” Black said. During the competition teams are given identical containers to deliver their meats to judges. Meats are scored by certified judges

on taste, tenderness and presentation. Wagner said the Kansas City BBQ Society points that come with a win are just as important to competitors as the $10,000 prize purse. Points qualify teams for invitation only barbecue competitions and more prize money. “They’re crazy, intense barbecuers,” Wagner said. “It’s a life for them.” Teams spend over $1,000 for travel, meats and ingredients. They can make up some of the competition costs with the sale of taste tickets

that spectators purchase to try 2-ounce samples of meats and deserts following the judging. “Most people buy 10 to 20 tickets,” Wagner said. “You don’t get to try competition barbecue very often. A lot of love goes into these meats.” In addition to tastes there are venders and live entertainment. “The entertainment is super smokin’ this year,” Wagner said.

Marines and sailors saluting 67 years By Sgt. Sarah Fiocco

CAMP PENDLETON — Marines and sailors of 1st Marine Logistics Group celebrated their unit’s 67 years of dedicated service during a battle colors anniversary ceremony aboard Camp Pendleton July 16. For more than half a century, the MLG has provided troops on the ground with the logistical support needed to complete their missions. The ceremony allowed

Marines and sailors to pay homage to the MLG’s illustrious history of providing combat logistics support all over the globe. Its past came to life as veterans and active duty Marines of 1st MLG presented battle streamers, representing unit awards, to the group’s commanding general, Brig. Gen. Vincent A. Coglianese. “We stand on their shoulders. It’s important that we as Marines always remember our heritage and

where we came from,” said Coglianese. The group has deployed to Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Somalia, Iraq and Afghanistan – where MLG Marines are still providing their logistical services. “As I speak to you today, Combat Logistics Battalion 1 is flying into Afghanistan, and they’re about to relieve CLB-7 who has done a magnificent job,” said Coglianese. “I saw them off the other day,

BETTER BOWL

and they just couldn’t wait to go. They know they’re part of Marine Corps history, as they will probably be the last CLB in Afghanistan.” Looking to the future, Coglianese said MLG will continue to provide excellent support as the logistics combat element. “The world’s a mess” said Coglianese. “It’s not ‘if’ we get called, it’s when. And when we do, 1st MLG will be ready.”

Marines, sailors and families enjoy the upgraded of Leatherneck Lanes on July 17 during its grand reopening. The remodeled base bowling alley is in the Mainside area of Camp Pendleton. The new facility features a new scoring system, party rooms, lounge, arcade and pool tables. For more information visit mccscp.com/bowl. Courtesy photo

CAMP PENDLETON — Marines with Headquarters Regiment, 1st Marine Logistics Group, participated in the testing of an emerging seabasing capability, using the Joint High Speed Vessel and the Mobile Landing Platform, aboard the U.S. Naval Ship Millinocket out of Long Beach on June 24 and off of Landing Craft Air Cushions on July 9 . The Mobile Landing Platform is a new type of Maritime Pre-Positioning Ship that facilitates the transfer of military equipment and personnel from large ships to ship-to-shore connectors. Seabasing is a naval capability that provides commanders the ability to organize and employ forces and equipment from ship-to-shore, entirely at sea. The concept of seabasing has been around for more than 30 years but the testing of MLP specific capabilities dates back to 2003 and is slated to be used during Rim of the Pacific 2014, the world’s largest multi-national maritime exercise. “The current version of the MLP was developed primarily to provide a surface interface between other Maritime Prepositioned Forces-Future squadron ships, ship-to-shore connectors and the Sea Base,” said Maj. Chad Grimmett, United States Marine Corps Liason to Program Executive Office Ships, Pacific and Theater Sealift PMS 385 and 470. “During a crisis response, local infrastructure may be unable to support the mooring of large Maritime Pre-Positioning Force ships,” said Grimmett. “Additionally, the instability triggered by the crisis might present a security concern that could expose personnel and equipment to poten-

tial shore-based threats. MLP can provide a ‘pier in the ocean,’ from which MPF shipping can safely and efficiently offload mission essential equipment, greatly increasing the Marine Corps’ responsiveness during crisis response.” During last month’s MLP exercise, Marines guided and drove Humvees and 7-tons from the USNS Millinocket to the USNS Montford Point. More recently, the embarkation specialists guided amphibious assault vehicles off of Landing Craft Air Cushion onto the ship. “This (capability) allows us to bypass either or unfriendly neutral ports, so we don’t need a deep-water port to come into an area where a crisis or conflict is erupting,” said Capt. Nicholas Borns, operations officer, Headquarters Regiment, 1st Marine Logistics Group. “This allows us to do what the nation sends us to without [taking several] extra steps of getting to a port and securing it.” Practicing both techniques allowed the Marines to explore the MLP’s full range of capabilities. “Just thinking about it, driving from one ship to another over the open ocean, it is definitely a unique, fun experience,” said Conerty who drove the first 7-ton across the bridge. At the end of the exercise, the seabasing concept was validated, something Borns has waited almost 10 years to see.

currently undeveloped land where the project is proposed. Geiser, who said he attended the meeting not representing the fire district, said he sees the major flaw of the project, much like the first one, is there is effectively one access point to the entire community — Twin Oaks Valley Road, which becomes Deer Springs Road on the eastern edge of the project. The two-lane road experiences serious congestion during rush hour as commuters use it as a pass through to avoid traffic on state Route 78 and Interstate 15. Adding as many as 10,000 new residents, Geiser said, could be disastrous. “That is the choke point in the whole thing,” Geiser said. “If we get a big wind-driven

fire, and this area hasn’t burned in 100 years so there is a lot of brush there, how do you get all of these people out in a hurry? “The bottom line is that they haven’t figured out how to get those people out of there,” Geiser said. Sandra Farrell, chairwoman of the Twin Oaks Community Sponsor Group, echoed Geiser’s concerns about the roads, but also expressed concerns about the project’s density, which would require an amendment to the county’s General Plan in order to proceed. “If we spent all this money on a general plan and we keep allowing developers to file specific plan amendments, we are going to be back in the same problem we have always been in,” Farrell said. “We won’t be able to mitigate the impacts, so why spend all of the millions of

dollars to update the general plan in the first place.” Brandin acknowledged the traffic and access concerns and said it is something they are working on trying to find a solution. One thing they have done, she said, was make the access point for the entire development would be at the Deer SpringsMesa Rock Road intersection, as close to the I-15 freeway as possible. “This was done so that the access would be right by the freeway,” Brandin said. Brandin said Newland has also tried to address some of the density concerns by consolidating development on only about 380 of the total project acreage. She said 1,200 of the acreage will be public open space and the rest will be for a large firebreak. The open space

would be roughly the size of Balboa Park, she said. One concern that Brandin said she doesn’t necessarily agree with is that of the general plan changes. She said the specific-plan process was created for specifically this purpose — to allow developers latitude with property and fill an important housing need for the county’s future growth. “I think the underlying very important thing to think about is when you look at the projected growth in this county, there could be an additional million people by 2050 and it is believed that 330,000 homes will be needed,” Brandin said. “We believe it is a value to go through the process of a Specific Plan amendment because we can meet a portion of the county’s longer-term needs.”

to say, when asked about his inspiration for his character, “I see what’s been created and it’s all just there in front of me, I feel like I’m just stepping into something amazing. “I feel like it’s a vessel that I’m filling,” he continued. “For inspiration, I don’t know — it’s just a dream come true.” “Hopefully, this show will run until I’m 25,” commented David Mazouz, the young Bruce Wayne, who thinks he will don Batman’s cape

and cowl at around that age. Camren Bicondova, described as a miniature Michelle Pfeiffer, admitted she was unaware her audition was for Selina Kyle — the future Catwoman — but nonetheless expressed excitement about what awaits her character. “I’m excited about everything. She’s (Selina Kyle) really mysterious and you don’t really know what she’s thinking all the time, or whether

she’s thinking anything at all,” she said, going on to add, “She’s a cat lover and I’m a cat lover. I feel like we could be best friends.” The seeds for the Gotham City, as well as its residents, that we know and remember have been planted, and the prospect of them growing into something wonderful seems likely. “Gotham” is scheduled to premiere Mondays starting Sept. 22 on FOX.

NRG Energy owns the power plant, which it plans to retire and tear down after a new plant is built on the same location. Negotiations between the city and NRG made this agreement possible. The power plant sits on 100 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean. “Can you imagine what 100 acres is worth on the Pacific Coast?” Hall asked. He told the crowd that a lot of work is needed to make his vision for the linear park and the power plant come true. “When you start thinking about dreaming the impossible dreams, these two projects themselves are

sustained any great injuries, and overall they have had no complaints with the new track. “Generally speaking — and maybe there are one or two contrarians — the riders are fine with the turf,” he said. Following two deaths on the grass course July 26, all races the following day were run on the main synthetic track and no injuries occurred. Track officials used the extra day to soften the grass with a complete watering and aeration. The inner rail was also repositioned. Work to replace the turf track, which was installed for the 1960 season, began in September. The same grass was used because of its proven ability to adapt and grow well in Del Mar and withstand the track’s use of salty reclaimed water. The grass is also said to be tough and dense, which keeps the hoof from penetrating the turf. CROP .93 Several factors go into determining which .93 races will 4.17 be run on turf rather than Polytrack, 4.28 McBride said. “Different animals do well on certain surfaces,” he said. “Certain types of horses are trained on grass. Horses that run on grass are usually of higher caliber. They run for bigger purses. There’s stiffer competition. “Polytack is universal,” he said. “Some adapt and respond kindly. For the vast majority it proves to be kind to almost all horses.” Horses are generally faster out of the gate on the Polytrack. Turf racing tends “to end with a great rush at the end. It’s very European,” McBride said. Each race is carded, or put together, based on several factors, including which of the 2,000 horses are available to race and their caliber. He also said several factors can contribute to accidents and injuries, including the nature of the sport.

probably about a billion dollars,” said Hall. He said the city would need to work with the business community and gain the support from voters and citizens to make the projects happen. Former Councilwoman Ann Kulchin endorsed the mayor and his vision. “We are so fortunate to have a mayor we all know and all respect,” said Kulchin. Along with the two park projects, Hall hopes to make Carlsbad more efficient. “My focus is to design and run the most high efficient public sector or governmental agency in the state, if not the country,” said Hall. As of July 25, nobody else has filed paperwork to run in the mayoral race. “We take as many precautions as we can,” McBride said. “You’ve got a 1,000-pound animal on thin legs going 45 mph in close quarters. Sometimes there’s bumping.” McBride noted that within the first nine days of racing hundreds of horses raced without incident. “We do everything we can to ensure safety,” he said. “Our No. 1 priority is safety. We can’t have any other priority in this business.” He said most injuries occur in the legs and there is usually no other choice but to put down an injured animal. “You can’t put a horse in a cast and lay it down for six weeks,” he said. At Del Mar, each horse is inspected four times before it races by three different veterinarians, one of which is appointed by the state. A vet is also at the starting gate in case a rider suddenly determines something “doesn’t feel right,” McBride said. But even with all those precautions, unknown pre-existing conditions can result in accidents and injuries during a race, McBride said. Every horse that dies at the track is mandated by the state to go through “an A to Z necropsy,” McBride said, to determine the cause of death. The results usually take months. In a press release issued following the two deaths July 26, track officials stated they are “deeply saddened by the loss” of thoroughbred lives but “have the utmost confidence in the course.” They stated they expect the course will “perform in a positive fashion” following the three days of maintenance. The 36-day meet runs through Sept. 3, with no racing scheduled on Mondays and Tuesdays, except for Labor Day. Del Mar is coming off one of its safest years, with only four horses lost during the 2013 season. Its worst year was 2006, when 18 animals were lost, McBride said.

Sports Encinitas Little League wins SoCal title, sets sights on the LLWS Contact us at sports@coastnewsgroup.com with story ideas, photos or suggestions

sports talk jay paris Love these newfangled GPS devices but can you really trust them? Consider the one employed by Encinitas Little League’s All-Star team. It punched in Encinitas as the starting point with San Bernardino as the destination. The route, though, was a bit curious, as ELL was pointed toward San Diego and El Cajon before reaching the Inland Empire. But not once did someone beg the driver to pull over and ask for directions. ELL was on the right road the whole time. “It’s unbelievable,’’ ELL manager Chaz Gagne said. ELL rolls into the IE one step away from the Little League World Series. In advancing to the West Region Tournament, after

claiming crowns around San Diego County, ELL is this close to reaching South Williamsport, Pa., and the Little League World Series. For the first time in ELL’s 57-year history, its team won the Southern California title on July 27. It did so with a dramatic rally in the final weekend, erasing a one-game deficit to eliminate Long Beach and win the best-of-three series. When the final out nestled into left fielder Finlay Lumsden’s glove, a celebration was set off that stretched from the Fletcher Hills Little League complex to the Encinitas shores. Or was anyone at the beach to boast? Probably, but it seemed most of the city was at the deciding game, decked out in red, loud and proud. “It looked like the Red Sea out there,’’ pitcher/outfielder Spence Jones said. Not sure ELL departing to San Bernardino is a miracle but consider the odds. Nearly 600 SoCal teams would swap their summers with it. The baseball-mad SoCal

section is among the world’s toughest to survive. But live on and play on is ELL’s motto and just how did this plucky bunch of kids pull this off? “I’m at a loss for words,’’ said Pete Gagne, Chaz’s son, and it was his gutty pitching performance on July 26 which staved off elimination.

“The biggest identity this team has is we don’t rely on any single person,’’ Chaz said. Pete’s old man proved that in the SoCal title game. He pegged Nick Sando as the starter, after he pitched one inning in the postseason. Sando was relieved by Ryan Martinez, who entered with a whop-

ping three innings of AllStar work. We’re pleased to report both pitchers remembered to breathe. We can’t say the same for their pacing parents. But their teammates just shrugged, figuring someone else would come through. “We have a lot of confidence,’’ said outfielder Niko Ortega, who crushed a homer in the championship game that might still be traveling. “It comes from the players and the coaches.’’ ELL continues an amazing run of success for North Coast teams. Oceanside American went to the LLWS in 2001. Solana Beach’s 2007 squad reached the West Region final. Eastlake of Chula Vista is the defending U.S. champion and its players met with ELL before its charter bus headed for San Bernardino. “It’s amazing that they reached out to us and talked to the kids about what to expect,’’ Chaz said. “But we’ve heard from a lot of teams around San Diego County.’’

That includes leagues ELL ousted — maybe because Gagne requires his players to smack the ball and not their lips. After each game ELL players and coaches remove their hats, stand before the other team’s boosters and applauds them for attending. Class act by a class team. “That’s the one thing I’m most proud of,’’ Gagne said. “You can see it in other fans’ faces that they appreciate the effort from our boys and how they carry themselves as competitors and not showboats.’’ The West Region schedule shows five games in six days for ELL, starting Saturday against Hawaii. “Sleep well and pack a big lunch,’’ Gagne will tell his team. Good advice because one can’t dream with eyes open. For 14 Encinitas kids, those Little League World Series aspirations still breathe. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com.

Annual longboard contest returning to Oceanside By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — The annual Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club contest is a longloved summer tradition for locals. For 30 years longboard riders have gathered to compete at the Oceanside Pier. This year the contest will be held Aug. 1 through Aug. 3. In addition to the Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club team competing against rival California surfing clubs, there will be pro open surfing, longboard noseride and tandem surfing competitions open to all competitors. “There will be surfing all day, every day,” Gretchen Harris, Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club team captain, said. The pro open includes men’s and women’s longboard and short board competition. The contest splits a $5,000 prize purse among the top eight overall winners. Trophies are also given to top age division winners. The noseride competition is all about time on the front 24 inches of the board. Longboards must be nine feet or longer, and are measured and taped at the 24-inch mark before competition starts. “It’s a timed event with both feet across the top 24 inches,” Harris said. “It’s all timed on the tip.” The noseride competition will also award a $5,000 prize purse among the top eight winners. Preliminary heats for the pro open and noseride competitions take place Aug. 2. Final heats will be held Aug. 3, along with an awards ceremony to close the contest. Another nostalgic competition to take place is tandem surfing, in which pairs hold acrobatic lifts while riding in on a wave. Competition

takes place midday Aug. 2. New this year will be the doctors and legends heat on the north side of the pier. TriCity Medical Center doctors will surf alongside surfing legends. Legends including Mickey Munoz, LJ Richards and David Nuuhiwa will also be at Legends of Surf Gala. Fans can meet and greet renowned surf legends and enjoy live music, appetizers, wine, beer and a silent auction of surfboards by Guy Takayama, Infinity and Donald Takayama/Hawaiian Pro Designs. The ticketed fundraiser will be held at the California Surf Museum Aug. 1 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. On the beach during the three-day event will be live music, Tahitian dancers, vendor and food booths and a microbrew beer garden. “There will be 30 to 40 vendors of all kinds,” Harris said. “Bands will be playing all weekend.”

The festival will be held at the Junior Seau Pier Amphitheater. Proceeds from the event will help support Oceanside High School and El Camino High School surf teams, the Scholastic Surfing Association and the California Surf

Museum. The Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club was formally established in 1983 in order for Oceanside surfers to compete against other surf coalition teams. The goal of the club is to promote and foster amateur surfing, emphasize good sportsmanship and citizenship, support coastal conservation, and improve the public image of surfing. “The focus of the club has always been on good sportsmanship, surfing, having fun and giving back to the community,” Harris said. The club has 180 active members. The Supergirl Pro ASP sanctioned women’s surf contest, which was previously held in conjunction with the Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club contest, will be held the following week on Aug. 8 through Aug. 10. A complete schedule of Oceanside Longboard Surfing Club competitions will be posted online the days of the contest at oceansidelongboardsurfingclub.org.

ple who spoke at the meeting, didn’t support any of the recommendations. “Solana Beach has to improve over time,” he said. “It has to upgrade. But boy, let’s keep it low key because that’s why we live here.” He said adding more restaurants is good in theory, but they will inevitably become bars. “Encinitas is a good example,” he said. “The vibe of the street is different. It’s not a funky beach town anymore. It’s starting to become a party town. There’s bouncers at the doors of places. … It’s not what I want to see in Solana Beach.” He said suggestions, including the valet service, wouldn’t add more parking.

powerful message behind them.” Trute’s story would not be complete without mention of her relationship with companion and fellow artist Dennis Paul Batt, who for a decade was the principal champion of her work. Upon her death, Trute bequeathed her entire body of work to Batt as custodian of her legacy. However, as the result of his untimely death a mere six months after hers, the ownership of Trute’s entire body of work passed to Batt’s mother.

About 40 suggestions came out of the first meeting, a brainstorming session in December where “no idea was a bad idea,” Nichols said. All ideas were discussed, some were eliminated and others were combined into the list of four that were presented to council. City staff will come back with more details on

the feasibility of each item at future meetings. Heebner said they all warranted further exploration. “People are coming here to develop, and if we don’t do something that is maybe creative and a little out of the box what we’re going to see is a lot of boxes because people are going to buy these spaces, tear them down, build to the max as much as they can and provide underground parking for their parking requirements,” she said. “That’s what I don’t want to see up and down 101,” she added. “We have to do something. That’s why we’re here talking about these different ideas — so that we can maintain the fabric of our beach town, so that we can create incentives so that some of these old buildings won’t be torn down.”

Gaspar also touts her opposition to a proposed sales-tax increase that the council majority discussed earlier this year. The council ultimately sidelined the plan in March. In addition to Gaspar and Muir, peace activist

Alex Fidel, local activist Al Rodbell and local engineer Munawer “Mike” Bawany are the others to signal interest in running for the mayoral position. Fidel is the only one to return his paperwork and be certified for the Nov. 4 ballot, City Clerk Kathy Hollywood said. Candidates have until Aug. 8 to return their nomination paperwork.

Since that time, Zelda Batt and her daughter Laurie Aker have been eager to share Trute’s compelling legacy with the world. During the exhibition of Jen Trute’s original oil paintings at L Street Fine Art, one of her most popular paintings titled “Sunbathe Barbie at Bombay Beach” will be represented by a giclée print. For the month of October 2014, the original painting will be traveling with Oceanside Museum of Art’s California Dreaming exhibition to Italy’s Palazzo della Provincia di Frosinone, where Trute’s painting will make its in-

ternational debut. Trute’s message of the urgent need for environmental responsibility will live on through her art, both locally and abroad. Jen Trute’s Enviroscapes will be on display at L Street Fine Art from July 31 through Oct. 8. The public is invited to attend an opening reception Aug. 9, 6 to 9 p.m.

Mr. Piana, considering the significant role you played in bringing “Mordraud” to life through visual form, are you going to have a hand in shaping future adaptations of the book, or is your current focus on other equally inspiring yet unrelated projects? Fabio and I have always discussed how “Mordraud” would be best adapted to a television series.

include an interactive website, creation of a database of interested parties that would be used for direct noticing of meetings and workshops beyond what is required, meetings with neighbors and other stakeholders and creation of an advisory group. In a letter to the city and during the public comment period, resident Hershell Price said the project should be approved in a formal vote. He also asked that the public be notified once the plans have been submitted so residents can begin commenting on the project as soon as possible. “We welcome your comments on the project,” Marco Gonzalez, of Coast Law Group, said on behalf of his clients. “We’re trying to create a very, very transparent process.” Gonzalez said as a land use attorney, he is often frustrated trying to get documents. As a result, his clients are committed to creating a website where the public doesn’t have to search for documents, such as a draft specific plan, the environmental impact report and public comments. “We’re going to make that readily available right up front and an opportunity for people to put in their comments right there on the spot online,” Gonzalez said. He said the goal of the

with Coast Law Group who is representing Hitzke, said. “There are currently 31 public parking spaces available, and when the development is completed, there will be 35. “ Un for t u n ate ly, while the project was being processed, it became readily apparent the opposition was, in fact, more concerned about the affordable nature of the development than any impacts that might occur from the 10 units,” he added. “This is exactly the

type of lawsuit that has caused legislators to push for CEQA reform in Sacramento,” Gonzalez said. “It’s an abuse of the law’s intent.” Tom Ryan, chairman of the Condominium Organization of South Sierra Avenue that represents other condominium associations on South Sierra, said his group has no plans to take action against the city. Seascape Sur, also headed by Gifford, withdrew from COOSSA the day after the project was approved.

advisory group is to “foster some dialogue from some interested parties in regular meetings … so that we can get their honest, very upfront approach to things as they go along.” “We’re here to constantly field the comments of the community,” Gonzalez said. “Because this is such an important project at such an important location in this community, we want to give this added level of transparency. “However … we don’t believe it’s appropriate to bring this to a vote,” he added. “We are committed to transparency and having as many meetings as it takes to make sure everyone gets heard and hopefully we’ll see this project evolve into something that at the end of the day we can all stand proud of.” Price and resident Arnold Wiesel, who also spoke at the July 21 meeting, said they appreciate the transparency efforts, but still believed registered voters should have a chance to weigh in. “This is serious enough, contentious enough,” said Wiesel, who hosted a community meeting about the project in November. “This is not a light-hearted event. This will be a dogged fight and it doesn’t have to be. This is not a moment of crisis and conflict. This is really a moment to vote.” Residents Don Countryman and Dwight Worden sent emails to the

city supporting the specific plan process. Countryman said the city should “avoid a public vote” because the housing goals of the project are part of the state-certified housing element, a fact not lost on Councilwoman Sherryl Parks. “We can’t forget that we will be penalized and have a hefty fine if we ignore this,” she said. “So that’s the reality of this plan.” With a 4-0-1 vote, with Al Corti recused because he lives within 500 feet of the project, council members agreed to allow the specific plan process, noting it is too early to discuss a public vote. “This is a very, very important project for the community,” Councilman Terry Sinnott said. “It’s in a location that we hope is going to be developed in a way that fits with the community. “I know there are folks who want to have a public vote on the project,” he added. “I think that is a little bit premature because we don’t even have a project. We don’t have the public input yet.” Mosier agreed. “I think … the council can make more commitments about a public vote or not a public vote when we see how the process works at each step,” he said. “If it’s still controversial at that end stage, after all this public input, we’ll have to consider exercising the wisdom of the voters.”

If you consult

either of these resources, you should be aware that the same Lender may hold more than one mortgage or Deed of Trust on the property.
