Students call for campus safety By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS — As police and Cal State San Marcos officials continue to investigate an alleged rape at an off-campus fraternity party, dozens of people rallied in a show of solidarity with the alleged victim and called on university officials to create safer campus. University officials issued a crime alert last week that a student reported being sexual assaulted at a Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity party in Oceanside the weekend of May 4. School officials said the circumstances involving the alleged incident suggested that date-rape drugs were involved. The Oceanside Police Department is leading the criminal investigation as the incident occurred in its jurisdiction. Police officials said the suspect, a fraternity member, is cooperating in the investigation. He has not been charged, pending the results of DNA testing. School officials said that the school has received other reports of sexual assault involving the fraterniTURN TO SAFETY ON 18

ESCONDIDO — Mayor Sam Abed held a town hall meeting on Wednesday to talk about the city’s developments and to allow residents the opportunity to formally voice their concerns. Abed announced that the city’s long-term and underlying bond rating has been upgraded from A+ to AA- by Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, which means the city can borrow money more cheaply, according to Abed. “When everybody else is struggling with their bond rating, Escondido’s bond rating has been upgraded,” said Abed, “This is great news for the taxpayers.” The city will be able to borrow money for city services with a lower interest rate, according to Abed. The Neighborhood Transformation Project was also discussed. The initiative is a collaborative effort between the police, faithbased organizations, residents and businesses to improve property values in order to bring in better business. Police Chief Craig S. Carter talked about the success the program has had on the area between West Grand Avenue and Thirteenth Avenue along South Centre City Parkway. “During one point we might have had 10 or 15 auto thefts in a two week period and now we have zero,” said Carter, “It’s actually making an effect.” Carter said his budget has not increased at all. Once the area becomes prosperous and self-sustaining, the police will focus efforts on a new area in the city, said Carter. Neighborhood improvement is one of the top four priorities for the city, said Abed.
“Creating a safe and healthy neighborhood is our top priority,” said Abed. Residents also asked about the move to a charter city, which Abed said he supported. “We want to be as independent as possible from the state’s failed policies,” said Abed. He referred to past

failures at the city level, like the city of Bell in Los Angeles, which was embroiled in a scandal after city council members were found to be giving themselves exorbitant salaries. He said the city would not be able to “arbitrarily give ourselves money.” “We have left the risks out of the charter city,” said Abed, “The power is with the people of Escondido, not with the government in Sacramento.” Another resident brought up the solar panels the city installed in Kit Carson Park. City Manager Clay Phillips said the panels are not generating tremendous amounts of money. “It’s not so much savings as protection from future costs because obviously electric costs are going up,” said Phillips. “We may not have reduced costs but we also won’t be subjected to higher electrical TURN TO TOWN HALL ON 18

REGION — North County cities along the Interstate 5 corridor are on board with improvements planned over the next 40 years. The Coastal Commission gave the go-ahead on Aug. 13 to the public works plan submitted by Caltrans and SANDAG for 27 miles of corridor improvements between La Jolla and Oceanside. “We’re supportive of it, all North County coastal is,” Oceanside Mayor Jim Wood said. Corridor improvements will be made to I-5, rail lines and bicycle lanes. Wood said improvements are sorely needed. The interstate faces major traffic congestion even in off-peak hours, and double tracking rail lines is essential to make railroad transportation more efficient. The corridor plan will be phased in multiple projects and paid for by TransNet half-cent on the dollar sales tax funds. Phase I improvements will cost $600 million and begin in 18 months. They include adding a 27-mile carpool lane to I-5 in each direction from Solana Beach to state Route 78. Allan Kosup, Caltrans I-5 corridor director, said the extended carpool lane would encourage carpool and bus traffic and accommodate the free flow of

traffic. Additionally, sections of rail line will be double tracked. Another improvement will be the installation of a 7-mile Class 1 bike lane at the I-5/Genesee Avenue Interchange. The bicycle and pedestrian lane will be put in on the west side of I-5 from Voigt Drive to Roselle Street. Currently bicyclists drive along the shoulder of the freeway on that stretch of the corridor. Phase I improvements include dozens of projects that are expected to be finished by 2018.

Future corridor improvements will add a second carpool lane to I-5, restore lagoon habitats and replace railroad trestles with tunnels. Kosup said the 40-year timeline for the corridor project does not mean continuous work will be going on for four decades. There may be years of no corridor work between phased-in improvements. He said it was significant that all cities supported the plan at the Coastal Commission meeting. “A unanimous decision is very rare in a project this size,” Kosup said. The commission’s decision came after a long review process that included all stakeholders. Kosup added there are a handful of county residents who continue to push for more public transit and less freeway. Overall the project is balanced to serve vehicles, rail transportation and bicycles. Final engineering work on the project remains to be done. SANDAG will continue to work closely with cities as the project moves forward. For more information and maps visit keepsandiegomoving.com.

Students’ longstanding parking ‘tradition’ comes to an end By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS — It has been a longstanding tradition at Cal State San Marcos for students to park their cars in the Barham/Discovery Industrial Park and leave them — for hours, sometimes days at a time. The city of San Marcos recently took action to end that tradition.
The City Council in July voted to enact new parking rules that limit parking the industrial park, just north of the campus, to two hours, effective 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The vote also includes a ban on parking on Monday between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. to accommodate street sweeping. The streets included in
the new zone include Industrial Street, East Carmel Street, Trade Street, La Moree Road, Venture Street, Hill Drive, Distribution Street, Production Street and Enterprise Street. Violations come with a $48 fine. City officials said they had received complaints from businesses in the industrial area whose customers had trouble
finding parking as it was taken early in the day by co-eds. “By also having 2-hour parking in the Industrial Park more street parking will open up for people looking to visit a business in the area,” said Karl Schwarm, the city’s housing and neighborhood services director. The City Council during its July discussions expressed
concern that the $48 penalty would not be enough of a deterrent, because it is still significantly cheaper than purchasing a university parking pass — $ 643 for the academic year or $338 for the fall semester. The Council, as part of its approval, agreed to bring the item back in several months to determine if it needs to raise the citation amount.

Small businesses benefit from government contracts By Ellen Wright
REGION — “Small business drives the economy of San Diego,” Assemblyman Rocky Chavez told a crowd full of small business owners Friday at an event put on by The North County Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The free Meet the Buyers event was hosted to help small business owners get coveted government contracts and learn how to avoid common pitfalls. “Believe it or not, government contracting can be one of the easiest things you do,” said Cheryl Brown, senior business consultant for SBDC. “The hardest part about government contracting is following directions.” The federal government places emphasis on small businesses, which is why 23 percent of federal contracts are required to go to small businesses, according to Lynn Pittman, a business consultant with SBDC. California requires 25 percent of contracts be awarded to small business, said Pittman. Wayne Gross, outreach liaison with the Department of General Services for California said the state is the ninth largest economy in the world. “The question is not what would we buy, it’s what don’t we buy,” said Gross. “We buy everything from apples to Ziploc bags and services to go along with it.” A unique example is the Kool Tool, which was honored at the event. Sher Krieger,
partner and executive vice president of sales and marketing said the company worked a lot with the SBDC. Without them, the company would not have gotten a contract with CalTrans, said Krieger. Kool Tool is an absorbent towel that cools down when snapped and Krieger said CalTrans bought an order to cool off their employees in East County. Her biggest hurdle has been getting the word out so that employees know to ask their procurement departments for the product. In order to sell to the government, a business must be certified. The process of filing paperwork takes about 30 minutes, according to Gross. Some agencies also place emphasis on businesses owned by women, minorities or veterans. The SBDC helps business owners understand the process of applying for government services and helps small business owners run more efficiently. All services are free and the program runs on grants and donations. The government also matches each donation since the program helps create jobs and more tax revenue. Last year the SBDC helped small businesses create and maintain 400 jobs in North County. The panelists at the Meet the Buyers event had some advice for landing government contracts. “To get the contract TURN TO CONTRACTS ON 17
SAN MARCOS — There will be no city council election in San Marcos on Nov. 4, as a divided council voted to cancel the election as all of the incumbents — Mayor Jim Desmond and council members Kristal Jabara and Chris Orlando — are running unopposed. It is believed to be the first time in San Marcos’ 51-year history that an election was cancelled due to lack of opposition. The City Council voted 3-2 in a special session Wednesday afternoon to cancel the upcoming mayoral election election and 3-1 to cancel the upcoming council election. Desmond, Jabara and
councilwomen Rebecca Jones voted for the cancellation, Orlando voted against the mayoral cancellation and abstained from the council vote and councilwoman Sharon Jenkins opposed both votes. Reached after the vote, Jenkins said she believed voters deserved the right see their local representatives on the ballot, even if there were no challengers. “My reason of wanting to have it is that I think it is the most transparent process and that the American way is to vote,” Jenkins said. “I think the community would rather see their local representatives also.” Jenkins said cancelling the election also eliminates the possibility of someone mounting a write-in campaign, despite the fact such campaigns are rarely suc-
cessful. “Again, I think our residents deserved that right,” she said. Desmond, when asked about a potential write-in campaign, said being a good steward of public funds outweighed using the money for an election with a remote chance of success. “I think that option, since no one stepped up in regular process, that option would be have a very remote chance of being successful, I think it is less than a five percent chance that it would have any traction,” Desmond said. “Having up to $30,000 in taxpayer money to maybe pay for a write-in election, which has a 95 percent chance of not happening, I just think that money could be spent some place else.” Desmond agreed with Jenkins in regards to the
state of the city. “I don’t know, I would like to think people are pretty happy with direction city is going,” Desmond said. “We don’t have internal bickering, tend to get city business done, and then we go home.” The San Marcos Council has had a relatively controversy-free stretch, with the most divisive issue most recently being the overhaul of the city’s wireless communication tower ordinance. Jenkins said she thinks the lack of challengers speaks to the fact that residents are pleased with the governance. “I think overall people are satisfied in San Marcos,” Jenkins said. “Maybe we don’t always agree, but I think people are satisfied with the work being done by the Council as well as staff.”
Source of water contamination determined By Ellen Wright
ESCONDIDO — Officials from the Rincon del Diablo Municipal Water District have determined the source of the water supply contamination that resulted in the boil alert, which started on Aug. 15. Four weeks ago, a fire hydrant near Nutmeg Street was sheared off and a small amount of “soil-related organic matter” made it into the pipe system, near the water sampling station, according to Julia Escamilla, public services information officer of the water district. “This organic matter
has since been flushed their tap water for five from the system,” said minutes before drinking or cooking with it. Escamilla. About 60 more homes About 6,300 homes were forced to spend a few more days without drinkable tap water while officials did more testing. The Coliform bacterium is not harmful itself, but it is often an indicator that more harmful bacteria, like E.coli, may be present. Officials did not Julia Escamilla find any E.Coli, or other Water District Spokewoman harmful bacteria.

bette Brown, media relations manager for the hospital. The hospital shut off the tap water during the weekend and sanitized all of the ice machines, water dispensers, coffee makers and eye washing stations once the water was safe to use again. The water district has never had to issue a boil alert in its 60-year history. The cost of the boil alert is still being determined, according to Escamilla. Officials alerted residents and businesses through phone calls and home visits.
Former employee removes patient records from Tri-City Health By Aaron Burgin
OCEANSIDE — The Tri-City Healthcare district is investigating how a former employee was able to remove private records of about 6,500 patients from the hospital earlier this month and why he turned them over to the state Department of Public Health. In a statement, the district said the former employee removed emergency department logs — paper records that include personal information of patients who visited the hospital’s emergency department
and were admitted to the hospital or transferred to another facility — without authorization. The logs include full names, dates of service, birthdates and medical record numbers and covered a time period from Dec. 1, 2013 to May 13, 2014, but don’t include social security numbers or financial information. The former employee turned the records over to the San Diego office of the state’s public health department, which still has the records, but is in the process of turning them over to Tri-City,
hospital spokesman David Bennett said. It is unclear why the former employee took such action. “We don’t know why he turned them over to the state,” Bennett said. “Normally if the state health department wanted those records, they would have contacted the appropriate people here, and obviously we would have given them whatever they wanted.” Hospital officials described the employee as a mid-level official in the hospital’s facilities department who was let go
earlier in the summer. He would not have access to those records, they said, but another worker left them on a cart that the employee used. Bennett said the hospital immediately reported the breach to appropriate regulatory agencies such as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The Oceanside police were also contacted. Bennett said there is no indication that any of the confidential information in the logs has been used or further disclosed.

Views expressed in Opinion & Editorial do not necessarily reflect the views of The Coast News
If not six Californias, how about one, sovereign Ca? California Focus By Thomas Elias
Letters to the Editor The ACLU and Escondido I read an article in The Coast News Inland Edition about the ACLU with great interest. The article is in regard to the Southwest Keys interest in housing 96 illegal immigrant children in a convalescent care facility in Escondido, Calif.. The article states, “that Mr. David Loy of The ACLU filed an appeal against the city’s denial of the facility, stating the difference between a shelter and a residential care facility is the children served by Southwest Key are not homeless. They are traveling from one home to another.” I live in Escondido, Calif. about three blocks from the residential care facility where you want to force the city of Escondido to house 96 child illegal aliens. It seems you gave little or no thought to what is best for the children’s best interests. This facility was designed for as a hospital care facility. The facility has no playground for the children to play and exercise which is important for keeping children healthy. The majority of the Escondido residents have decided twice that this location is not the place for this use. This facility is not suitable for housing large numbers of children and adolescents. Also, the parking lot is small and will not service the large amount of vehicles for employees needed to operate this facility. Rather then spending your time and energy forcing this inappropriate facility down the throats of the citizens of Escondido that do not think this facility is the proper place for 96 illegal alien children, why don’t you locate a proper location for the children, such as a school. The city of San Diego is in the process of selling several schools to meet a
budget deficit. I am sure they would be more then willing to help you locate a facility that would be suitable for the young children bests interests. You need to keep in mind the ACLU mission statement. We want you do the right thing to help the children: “The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization whose stated mission is “to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States.” It works through litigation, lobbying, and community education. Sincerely, Timothy Swift, Escondido Mayor’s comments The mayor of Escondido, Sam Abed’s comments regarding the ACLU’s efforts to house the unaccompanied minors coming across our borders shows that his racist attitude still lingers. The ACLU’s appeal concerns whether the denial of housing was based on discrimination rather than trying to “interfering with a land use decision” as per Mr. Abed’s comments. Mr. Abed tries to assuage his actions by stating that he’s a “proud immigrant” himself, forgetting to mention that he took the fast route to the head of the line by marrying an American thus kicking dust in the faces of those who truly faced untold dangers and even death to get here for the same “values, for the liberty, for the freedom” which Mr. Abed claims were the reasons he came here. Some people will say, “But these children are breaking the law. Why should we house them?” The law mandates that these children be housed.
How is that breaking the law? Until the law is changed, the ACLU is only trying to do what the law states. Mr. Abed does not have the humanness that an elected leader should have and my hope is that the truly righteous residents of Escondido will see him for what he is and will not vote for him in November. Andy Pino, Escondido The price of voting Last Monday notice was given that the Del Mar City Council would interrupt their August vacation to hold a special meeting on Wednesday to vote to cancel the Del Mar Citizens’ right to vote in November for the election of two councilmen for the next term! And appoint the two instead! The reason being to save $7,000 to $9,000 cost to hold the election. What a cheap price for the citizens’ right to vote! And, if 2,000 citizens would have voted in November, the two appointed councilmembers wouldn’t know whether they had the approval and support of 2,000 Del Mar voters, or 50! What other citizens’ rights will be ignored during the next council term?
Two years from now, Californians will not only be thinking about electing a U.S. senator, 53 members of Congress and a President, but most likely also about the possibility of carving up their state into six new ones. The ballot initiative to do this is the brainchild of billionaire venture capitalist Tim Draper, who observes to reporters that “bad government is not to be tolerated” and that “California is ungovernable.” His idea of creating new states like Silicon Valley, Jefferson and West California and possibly making state capitals of places like Santa Ana, Redding and Fresno comes after many other failed efforts to rip California apart, mostly motivated by water politics or Republican frustration at living in a Democratic-dominated state. But just as Californians for the next two years will bandy about the idea of Balkanizing their state, some may also want to consider using their state’s sheer size and scale to secede from the Union. Granted that the last time anyone made a serious effort at something like this, a four-year Civil War resulted. But still, California takes occasional stabs at semi-sovereignty and even manages to pull some of them off. One example is on smog, where the federal government for 44 years has let this state set rules tougher than those in force elsewhere. California governors sometimes even broach the topic of sovereignty. Example: On a July junket to Mexico City, Jerry Brown observed that “Even though California is a mere sub-national entity, it is equivalent to the eighth largest country in the world and we intend to operate based on that…clout.”
Ralph Peck, Del Mar
Brown referred to gross domestic product, where California ranks just behind Brazil and Russia, but is gaining on them, and well ahead of prominent nations like Italy, India, Mexico and Argentina. Like his predecessors going back to Goodwin Knight in the 1950s, Brown has signed international memoranda of understanding on subjects like trade, environment and tourism. But MOUs don’t have the force or standing of treaties,
A sovereign California also would no longer have to pour money into the federal government’s sinkhole... which a stand-alone California could make. A sovereign California also would no longer have to pour money into the federal government’s sinkhole, getting back only about 77 cents for every dollar its taxpayers put in while the likes of Mississippi, West Virginia, Maryland and Florida get far more than a buck back in federal spending for every one they kick in. Six Californias would give the current state 12 senators to the two it has now, guaranteeing that small states like Wyoming, Delaware and Wyoming will fight to kill this idea. They could do that if and when it comes up for congressional approval, as it must if the voters approve Draper’s idea. A sovereign California would also avoid the pesky worries that plague the six-state idea, like how to split up the state’s universities and how to finance states like Jef-
ferson (northern counties whose public services, including fire protection, are often subsidized by the rest of California) and Central California, which would instantly become America’s poorest state. Right next door to the poorest state, of course, would be the richest, Silicon Valley, perhaps making the Google headquarters in Mountain View its Capitol building. That would likely be the de facto headquarters, anyway. While there are questions about whether six new states could stay afloat financially and intellectually, there would be no such qualms about a sovereign California, which could create as many senators as it wanted. This, after all, is the idea capital of the world, a place where world-changing enterprises from the Google search engine to Apple’s family of i-Products originate. It’s where film companies like Paramount and Warner Bros. and Disney and Dreamworks create global dreams. It’s where public universities became great and its farms feed much of the human race. As a nation, it would rank sixth worldwide in producing solar power and boast the world’s fourth-highest human development index score, while having only the 35th-highest population. But splitting into six would create have- and have-not states with plenty of foreseeable grudges and grievances against each other. California could avoid all that by becoming independent. Or, of course, by simply remaining a single state. Email Thomas Elias at email@example.com.

Pendleton Marines help to close out Afghan war By Tony Cagala
CAMP PENDLETON — Artillery rounds from a training exercise nearby exploded in the hills of Camp Pendleton. “The sound of freedom,” said Col. Peter B. Baumgarten, as the resounding thunder of a shell hitting its mark rolled overhead. Baumgarten and more than 40 other Marines and Sailors from the 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division had, only moments before, disembarked from one of the white buses that brought them to their families. It was six months ago they deployed to Afghanistan as a task force to safeguard Camp Bastion /Leatherneck in the Helmand province. “It wasn’t bad at all,” said Cpl. Andrew Guzman on his first deployment. In the Marines for three-and-a-halfyears, Guzman, who’s from Walnut, Calif., said it was good experience and an honor to finally go and to close it out. The base is being downsized and the reduction of combat powers are underway, signaling the end to the longest war in U.S. history. “It’s interesting,” Baumgarten said on being a part of the war. “You stop and you think about it — 13 years in Afghanistan — and I always reflect back on 2001. I was a Major, a staff officer at Headquarters Marine Corps and somebody called me to the television and said, ‘Hey, you’re not going to believe what’s going on.’” It was just that morning, he explained, that he was thinking the world was quiet

— that his Marine Corps career was quiet. “For the next 10 years nothing is going to happen,” he said. “And then the whole world got turned on its ear on Sept. 11, 2001.” To be the last regiment after 13 years of combat in Afghanistan, it’s really an important feeling for the Marines, Baumgarten said. Though originally thinking that he would be taking 300 Marines on the deployment, things changed, and Baumagarten, who assumed command of the 1st Marine Regiment in May of 2012, was only able to take 45. “So these 45 are very spe-
cial Marines and they did a fantastic job. And I think the pride that they have in being a part of that history and contributing to that history is really important,” Baumgarten said. Samantha Newbern waited with excitement for her husband Sgt. Nicholas Newbern to get off the bus. Waiting with her was their 3-month-old son William, whom Nicholas hadn’t yet met. “It’s definitely not been easy,” Samantha said of her husband’s first deployment and their first child. “I’ve had a lot of support, and my husband has been fabulous throughout,” she said, noting
that she’s videoed and photographed every moment of William’s life. Still, Samantha said she expected to start crying on reuniting with her husband. “There’s this strange phenomenon where you finally allow yourself to realize just how hard it is,” she said. “Until that point, with the self preservation, you just don’t. And so yes, they’re happy tears, and it’s super exciting, but you also let yourself fully realize just how hard it was.” Another Marine, Cpl. Eric Candelario met his 4-monthold son Liam also for the first time since deploying. There are still 4,500 Ma-

SOLANA BEACH — A business relationship that started at Fiesta del Sol has evolved into a friendship and the creation of a book that will be submitted to the Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. During the 2012 Solana Beach event, resident Seymour Phillips stopped by the ScanDiego booth, where he met Brett Weiss, owner of the digital conversion company. “I had a million pictures and I needed help getting them organized,” Phillips said. “But I’m probably the doofus of all computer operators.” As they worked together Weiss, who describes himself as “an archivist and a bit of a historian,” became fascinated by his new client’s history, especially his service as a submarine electrician’s mate during World War II. Phillips, now 89, grew up in the Los Angeles suburb of Encino, not far from Phillips Bootery, the family business his father established in 1936. After graduating high school, Phillips joined the Navy in 1943. Following his training in San Diego, Iowa, Connecticut and Northern California, he arrived at Pearl Harbor on

Jan. 3, 1944. A few months later he received orders transferring him to the USS Herring. But the next day new orders arrived. “I was assigned to mess duty for 10 days, which was reporting to the commissary at 5 a.m., to a room with potato-peeling machines,” Phillips said. “We spent two hours filling 20 vats of peeled potatoes.”
Phillips said he doesn’t know if the reassignment was a mistake. Although he wasn’t happy about it at first, it appears to have been life-saving. The USS Herring’s eighth war patrol, which he had been assigned to, was its last. The submarine sank and no one aboard survived. “Life is really funny,” Philips said. “Sometimes I think I have some karma

Baumgarten described the interactions between the coalition forces and Afghan people as, “very positive right now.” “So it’s positive right now, in terms of the dynamics… the real question is, after we leave, how much is the support they’re getting from Kabul — the ministerial support, the logistics, the medical, the maintenance — all those things. How do those work to keep them sustainable over time,” he said. Yet, while in Afghanistan, Baumgarten said he was watching what was happening in Iraq with the militant group ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) seizing territories in the country, saying that it was “very disheartening.” “To be in a deployed environment — and I’ve lost friends in Iraq — every Marine who has served in Iraq has lost friends in Iraq. And to watch…ISIS take over territory in a matter of weeks that we worked years to hold and maintain and build — it was disheartening,” Baumgarten said.

Deputy mayor calls endorsement of initiative a ‘compromise’ By Ellen Wright
ESCONDIDO — Michael Schlesinger’s development company, Stuck in the Rough LLC, is aptly named. The Escondido Country Club was purchased by the Beverly Hills-based company in 2013 and the property has been stuck in the rough since then. Earlier this week, Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz announced she is backing Schlensinger’s initiative, which will be on the ballot in November, to develop the defunct golf course into a 430-home development with 25 percent open space. Diaz endorsed the Lakes Specific Plan, Open Space and Revitalization Initiative or Proposition H, calling it a compromise. “It provides a path to resolving an expensive legal dispute, offering a mix of community amenities, open space and new residential housing,” said Diaz. When Schlesinger first purchased the golf course, it was losing more than $35,000 a month, he said. Membership The Country Club property in Escondido remains unused since its purchase more than a year ago.

Throwing sheets to the wind
the cabinet doors wouldn’t close. I have actually watched a video on how to “fold” a fitted sheet but I end up in a wrestling match every time. I even had an acquaintance practice her organizing skills on these closets several years ago. Her lovely handiwork lasted about two weeks. I took a deep breath and made the decision to actually send off a good bit of my linen overflow. I finally parted with the bulk of the single-bed sheets. Of course, I had to keep the one I use to make a ghost at Halloween, and a few in various colors in case I needed them for a quick costume creation. The discards still filled a large bag. I then diligently sorted every sheet by size and made appropriate stacks thereof. I discarded ratty blankets, stained napkins, various tablecloths that fit no table I now own, two of the three Christmas place mat sets and some serious bleach accidents. I de-mustified the shelves, which were threatening to smell like mold, and put everything back all folded to the best of my rather insouciant style. All in all, it was almost as therapeutic as a day at the spa. Perhaps that’s why I rarely get trips to the spa. That needs to change.

members, and only half were using the golf course. The 50-year-old course also needed a lot of upgrades, including a sprinkler system. “They were watering 110 acres by hand,” said Schlesinger. He said he spent four to five months trying to decide whether or not the property, which has declared bankruptcy three times by different owners over the years, could become economically viable. After deciding it wasn’t, he proposed the building of 430 homes. In August 2013, the City Council unanimously voted to turn the property into permanent open space after residents surrounding the golf course started a movement to halt development of the property. They called themselves ECCHO (Escondido Country Club Homeowners Organization). Schlesinger then began litigation against the city, because, he said, his property became worthless. “It’s an extremely compliTURN TO COUNTRY CLUB ON 18
New campus building a boost for science By Aaron Burgin

the first new construction on the campus since the expansion of the student center in 2009. Broom said the additional classroom space will allow district officials to schedule more science offerings at the lower campus. “Science labs are always in high demand,” Broom said. “This was the board of trustees top priority.” The labs were such a high priority that the district proceeded with the project using reserves — nearly 20 percent of the previous $22 million pot — to build it after a bond measure was defeated in 2012. District officials pointed out though, that the $17.3 million left in the reserves is higher than the board’s policy of an 8 percent reserves-to-budget ratio.
Local residents and students are thrilled with the addition. Encinitas Councilwoman Teresa Barth, who graduated from the San Elijo campus in 1991, called the building a “great addition to the community.” “As an elected official, I always say that in Encinitas we have an incredible education system from pre-K to the community college level,” said Barth, who continues to support the campus’ goals. “I think it is great to see the San Elijo campus continue to expand and provide more classes to our local students in this area,” Barth added, Broom said the campus should see more activity in 2015 when several of the campus’ older buildings are retrofitted.

Alaska’s wildlife, landscape reveals itself in daylong cruise hit the road e’louise ondash
e have barely pulled away from the docks at Seward when we spot a sizable otter, lazily cruising on his back in the icy waters of the Gulf of Alaska. He seems not to be bothered a whit by the hundred-some tourists peering over the boat railing, all trying to capture a photo to text home. My husband and I are as guilty as the next guys. We don’t want to miss a thing on this daylong cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park. A park only since 1980, Kenai Fjords encompasses 605,000 rugged acres, including the 300-square-mile Harding Icefield, which feeds 39 glaciers. Lucky for us, it’s a dry and cloudy day — great conditions for photos. Full sun creates way too much glare on all that snow and ice, and besides, the low-hanging clouds provide extra drama to the landscape. Our boat, a custom-built, 83-foot catamaran named Orca Voyager, is operated by Kenai Fjords Tours. The company, owned by Native Alaskans, offers a variety of cruises along the magnificent real estate that is Alaska’s south central coast, also home to plentiful wildlife. As we cruise toward the fjords, Capt. Dan Olsen entertains us with continual and humorous narration about what we are seeing. In the off-season, he conducts orca research, so we benefit from all he knows about marine life — including his extensive file of whale-tail markings. He’s been cataloging flukes for years, and when we spot an orca, he searches his database for the pattern, puts it on the flat screens located throughout the boat, and gives us a bit of a biography. When we spot an orca known as KFY72, Olsen
tells us that the whale was last seen in these waters in 2008 and 2010. I would’ve been grateful to see a whale or two during the daylong cruise, but by trip’s end, we saw eight or nine, including a breaching humpback. As the whale propels himself out of the water again and again, Olsen explains that “he is a teenaged male showing off.” We see plenty of other marine and land life — otters, Steller sea lions, Dall’s porpoises, puffins, eagles and cormorants — and then the boat comes to a stop for another once-in-a-lifetime experience: glacial “calving.” I’m not sure who came up with this term, but calving occurs when chunks of ice break off into water at the end of a glacier, creating icebergs of varying sizes. This phenomenon is caused by the forward movement of the glacier, and when calving happens, it sounds like a tremendous roar of thunder — a drama to thrill anyone lucky enough to observe it. Sometimes hours can pass between calving episodes, Olsen says, but today we have the good fortune to witness nearly a dozen. Our day cruise includes a box lunch aboard the boat, and an excellent steak and grilled salmon dinner at a large rustic lodge on Fox Island, 12 miles south of Seward. During dinner, Ranger Ann Whitmore-Painter presents a brief slideshow and lecture about the area and the park service. A substitute teacher during the cold months, the born-and bred Alaskan tells us that, although she’s traveled to many places, “I would never want to live or retire anywhere else” — a common sentiment among Alaska residents. Our 10-day, late-June Alaska adventure was based out of Anchorage, a great location for seeing many sites within a two-to-three-hour drive. For our fjord cruise from Seward, we spent two nights at the comfortable Seward Windsong Lodge, a collection of 15 comfortable cabins (180 units) with all the amenities. It’s situated on the Resurrection River just north of town. Snow-covered mountains

Council closer to finalizing Pacific View deal By Jared Whitlock
ENCINITAS — The council took another step toward acquiring the Pacific View site on Wednesday night. Council members voted 3-2 in favor of a $50,000 deposit and other conditions spelled out in a memorandum of understanding for the property. That document paves the way for a final purchase agreement, which the council majority hopes to approve by the end of May. But the agenda item sparked a long debate over whether the council should have even agreed to pay $10 million to acquire the site from the Encinitas Union School District. Resident Jeff Eddington said he’s excited at the prospect of the city owning the site, but worried the coun- Pacific View Elementary, which closed a decil is getting “bamboozled.” cade ago.

2.3 times that price.” Eddington said. Councilman Tony Kranz, an advocate of the purchase, said the $4.3 million figure was based on the property’s current public zoning. And it was only intended as a first offer. Additionally, Kranz said he voted in favor of upping the price knowing that EUSD had a strong rezoning case, which would have made the land much more valuable. The city could have tried to fight the district’s rezone request, but that would likely have resulted in an expensive court battle, Kranz added. Last month, EUSD was due to auction Pacific View with a minimum bid set at $9.5 million. With the clock ticking, the city submitted an offer just before the deadline. EUSD has delayed the auction by two months as a safeguard, in case the deal with the
CARLSBAD — With it’s primary storefront empty for five years, the 33-year-old La Costa Towne Center at the corner of El Camino Real and La Costa Avenue is at last getting a revamp. The owner of the property gained approval to demolish two commercial structures in the shopping center and replace them with buildings that are half retail and half apartments from Carlsbad’s Planning Commission on April 16. Planning Commissioners praised the owners for coming forward with plans to redevelop the dated shopping center that they said currently lacks signage, design, and a main tenant. “(La Costa Towne Center is) just this big long white wall. You have no idea what’s inside, it’s not inviting,” said Planning Commissioner Hap L’Heureux. “This center has been long overdue.” Commissioner Aurthur Neil Black called the little mall an eyesore.

OCEANSIDE — The announcement that an UrbanLIFT grant will fund building the Kay Parker Family Resource Center at the planned Mission Cove affordable housing project bought applause for two reasons. Community members were glad to have a family resource center as part of the city’s low-income housing project, and equally pleased the name of the center will honor the late Kay Parker, a beloved, fair housing advocate.
Kay’s husband Dick Parker helped accept the grant at the City Council meeting April 16. He said the honor of naming the resource center after his late wife was well deserved. The Mission Cove affordable housing and mixed-use project on Mission Avenue is being developed through a partnership between the city and National Community Renaissance nonprofit developer. The project will break ground this summer. GradTURN TO CENTER ON A17

Trends to help small businesses stay competitive (BPT) — Some of the latest changes in technology are making it easier for employees to connect with clients and conduct business both day and night, which makes it easier for small and medium-sized businesses to compete against larger companies. Just a few years ago, unified communications (UC) systems were commonly found in large enterprises, however with the growth and widespread availability of the Internet, this technology is now becoming a competitive edge for small and medium-sized businesses. UC allow employees to interconnect anywhere at any time, helping to increase productivity and collaboration. From online messaging to Internet protocol telephony (IP telephony), businesses of all sizes can take advantage to connect with clients, partners and coworkers at all times of the day. Since 2012, the actual and planned use of UC has risen 54 percent, according to a November 2013 poll commissioned by Plantronics. The company, in partnership with Spiceworks, released an infographic to visually show the growth in UC product usage. Two technologies experiencing the greatest increase are mobile extension integration - which allows a company to connect employee cellphones with the company’s landline for purposes of forwarding calls when the employee is on the road, and for identifying calls made from the employee’s cellphone as having come from the company line — and IP telephony — which allows companies to conduct voice, video or fax connections via the Internet. Companies are also planning to boost the usage of Web and video conferencing, instant messaging with presence and softphones — which allow employees to make telephone calls over the Internet. The use of UC helps remote and mobile employees to stay connected with headquarters and can improve customer service, too, because it makes employees available when customers need them. Plantronics identified
the following five features as necessary parts of a UC system that employees will love: * Unified messaging All messages from email, voicemail, video, text and all other forms of communication will be gathered in one inbox, making it easy for employees to check and review all messaging in one glance. The phone messages can be accessed with a mobile Bluetooth headset like the Voyager Legend UC, transcribed for reading, or even forwarded to a colleague. • Presence - With many workers now on the road or working remotely, it will be easy for employees and management to see if someone is available with this feature of UC. • Integrated conferencing - A blend of Web and audio conferencing, integrated conferencing allows all employees to participate in meetings, training activities and lectures without having to come into the office. • Instant messaging or chat - All employees can quickly connect and hold a discussion about the latest company news with IM or chat capability. These UC tools also allow for the sharing of video or a desktop screen to enhance the communication. • One-number reach - This system gives clients direct access to employees, improving customer relations. One number is provided to clients. When called, this number is routed to all the telecommunications devices selected by the employee, such as their office number, mobile number and home phone, for example. The employee can set it to call all numbers at the same time or sequentially, and if the call is not answered, the system will deliver the caller to the employee’s voicemail. Employees at small and medium-sized businesses are busier than ever, which is why these unified communications technologies are so important.

And being the sole Carlsbad store where people can purchase firearms, Gunther Guns has become the go-to-spot for locals. But with that comes a sense of responsibility, too, which Lisa described as a “very detail-oriented paper driven business.” “We are heavily regulated by the state and the federal government,” she said. “No one,” she added, “can purchase a firearm without passing a thorough background check. We sell firearms to responsible law abiding citizens – it can be no other way.” And it’s not just gun enthusiasts that are coming through their doors, but also your average citizen. “It’s the people you do busi-

Highlanders victorious over the Beasts By Cpl. Keenan Zelazoski
CAMP PENDLETON — The 1st Light Armor Reconnaissance Highlanders won their opening game with a 28-8 victory over the 1st Marine Logistics Group Beasts at the Paige Field House on Aug. 19. The defense of the Highlanders was rock solid throughout the game, forcing three fumbles and an interception. The Highlanders returned the opening kickoff to their own 25-yard line. They continued to march the ball downfield and scored on a 60-yard run, taking an early 8-0 lead after a 2-point conversion. The Beasts tried to answer the touchdown with their ground game, but with the exception of one 40-yard burst, they couldn’t penetrate the Highlanders run defense. On fourth and 10, the Beasts failed to convert, turning the ball over on downs. The two teams had trouble finding a rhythm on offense until the Highlanders quarterback Josh Bulla connected a deep pass downfield, taking a 14-0 lead with them into halftime. Each year the Commanding General’s Cup is hosted on Camp Pendleton to breed the spirit of competition and team work that distinguishes Marines. In addition, the top two units competing in the CG’s Cup win money for their command at the end of each half of the competitions. “Eleven people with one goal, to win, there is nothing like it,” said

Marine dog handlers honored By Cpl. Keenan Zelazoski
CAMP PENDLETON — The Dawgs Project, a company dedicated to military working dog handlers of all services, unveiled a memorial to commemorate K-9 handling service members at the Pacific Views Event Center’s Memorial Garden at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in August. A 5,000-pound statue was placed in the garden with the names of fallen dog handlers from each generation dating back to WWI. Canines have been used to support warfare in various ways since ancient times. Romans used heavy-armored Mastiffs to attack the legs of their enemies as a strategy to force them to lower their shields during battle. The U.S. military also used dogs to carry first-aid kits during World War I. “It is difficult for people

Charles Peoples, corner back and wide receiver for the Highlanders. “It’s not just a game to me, it’s a lifestyle.” The Highlanders’ stifling defense came out in the second half and forced a fumble on the very first play, giving them excellent field position which led to them extending their lead 20-0. The majority of the second half was spent with a lot of back and forth with both defenses playing strong and creating numerous turnovers on downs. Just when the Beasts gained momentum, Peoples snagged an interception
and returned it to their own 43-yard line. The Beasts stuffed the run game on the first two downs of the drive following the interception, but on third and 10, Bulla connected with a 24-yard pass down to the 36-yard line. The Highlanders managed to move the ball downfield as Bulla scrambled for a few yards at a time until he found Bennie Netters, his tight end, open in the end zone, taking a 28-0 lead after another two-point conversion with 8:44 left to play in the game. The Beasts’ offense retaliated by moving the ball
downfield methodically on the ground. Despite trailing by 28 points, they were determined to find the end zone. They punched it in on a 20-yards run, putting their first points of the night on the scoreboard with 1:30 left to play in the game. Following the twopoint conversion, the Highlanders ran down the clock and claimed a 28-8 victory in their opening game of the season. This win was their first step toward claiming the trophy for 1st LAR this year in the tackle football league.
Preparing for various combat situations CAMP PENDLETON — Marines with 9th Communication Battalion, I Marine Expeditionary Force, got a bit more comfortable and skilled with the use of grenades aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton on Aug. 14. The communication Marines were trained by 1st Marine Division Schools as part of an annual training event to prepare them to react to various combat situations with confidence. Communication Marines don’t always get the combat training that is necessary, but Capt. Michael Trombitas, the company B commander for 9th Comm. Bn., is doing his part to make sure that changes. “I organize this training as often as I can to build proficiency and instill confidence in the Marines,” said Trombitas. “I want to make sure they are fully prepared to engage the enemy. The 9th Comm. Batallion Marines need to be ready to support all the Marines in I MEF.” The average day for these Marines is far from that of an infantryman, Trombitas said. They are of-
hand.” Though these Marines don’t see training like this all the time, Vickers said, they do their best to make sure they are proficient with the weapon system. “Practice makes perfect,” said Vickers, “and that’s what we are aiming for here.”

ten attached to infantry battalions and need to be prepared for when it happens. “This training differs from their usual workflow,” said Trombitas. “It reminds them that as Marines their main function is to fight America’s battles.” Sgt. Joseph Vickers, an instructor at 1st Marine Division Schools said the training is crucial for all Marines and can be a game changer on the battlefield. “Knowing how to utilize this weapon system is vital for any Marine,” said Vickers. “It’s a very basic weapon but it’s versatile and can
really change the outcome of a combat situation.” This small deadly weapon system is easy to train with. Vickers explained that they took the Marines through one at a time to reteach them the procedure of throwing a grenade. After reviewing the procedures and being cleared by the instructors, the Marines threw live grenades down range. “The Marines started the training by throwing simulated grenades and getting the feel for them,” said Vickers. “After that, they moved to live grenades and got to see their effects first
to understand the bond we share with the dogs,” said Jonathan Hemp, co-founder of The Dawgs Project and prior Air Force sentry dog handler during Vietnam. “[My dog] kept me alive every night, and I took care of him to the best of my ability.” The present generation has taken dog handling to a new level, as the dogs today are able to perform duties such as tracking and sniffing out narcotics and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), one of the most lethal threats U.S. troops face in Afghanistan today, according to Hemp. Members of the organization plan to begin the project each year with a ceremony where members of the organization and service members from the dog handling community will come together and honor fallen dog handlers at the memorial.

OCEANSIDE — Grab your Speedo, the annual Labor Day Pier Swim will be held Sept. 1. More than 500 swimmers are expected to compete in the 1-mile open water swim around Oceanside Pier. Event coordinator Larry Barr said race turnout depends on the weather. More than half of the athletes sign up the morning of the swim. A big part of the race challenge is facing the elements. Swimmers cannot wear fins or a wetsuit. Ocean temperature, currents and the race distance are demanding. “The biggest challenge is finishing it,” Barr said. “It’s a rough water swim,
not a pool event. It’s totally different elements.” The annual swim is a beloved tradition for many Oceanside families. Barr said he has seen three generations of a family take on the challenge together. “There’s a core group that has been swimming the race for years,” Barr said. Age divisions range from 12 to 80 and older. The top category was added to the contest last year at the request of an age 80-plus swimmer. “I’ve seen a 70-year-old man swim the race, and his wife waiting on the beach with a towel for him,” Barr said. “Most swimmers compete to stay healthy and challenge themselves.” Barr added the annual
85-year event is the longest running open water swim competition in the U.S. Matt Crabtree, of Murrieta, California, has competed in the annual swim for five years. “In the beginning it was to see if I could do it,” Crabtree said. “I’ve always been fairly outgoing and athletic. “Each year as I get older I see if it’s something I can still do.” Crabtree said facing outdoor elements makes each year unique. “It can be a different kind of swim every year,” Crabtree said. “One year it was really foggy and the lifeguards had to point me back because I couldn’t see the pier. Another year the cur-
rents made it tough to get out and stay on course. You just don’t know.” In addition to the race being a local tradition, swimmers from as far away as Arizona, New York and Alaska come to compete. The race is a personal best challenge and awards medals to top age group finishers. The fastest swimmers complete the mile in 15 minutes. Proceeds from the race help support the Oceanside Swim Club. Funds raised allow the club to purchase equipment, pay expenses and provide youth scholarships. Day-of signups for the Labor Day Pier Swim will be held at 7:30 a.m. The first heat takes off at 8 a.m.

DEL MAR — As the 2014 season of thoroughbred racing at Del Mar winds down, officials are gearing up for the inaugural Bing Crosby fall meet, which will feature a Gatsby-style opening-day party with all the glitz, glamour and headwear that implies. Described as “old Hollywood meets classic Southern California cool,” the added season will pay tribute to the 1930s, when Bing Crosby and some of his celebrity friends founded the seaside track. There will be 15 racing days Thursdays through Sundays, with an earlier daily post time of noon on weekends and 12:30 p.m. on weekdays. Post time will be at 11 a.m., however, Nov. 27, which is Thanksgiving Day. The Nov. 7 opening-day event will include an old-Hollywood fashion contest, with awards for best-dressed cou-
ple, best old-Hollywood and best celebrity lookalike. Saturday concerts include a reggae festival featuring Iration on Nov. 15 and the alternative rock band Cake on Nov. 29. Football fans can take in a day of racing and NFL action in the Cabana Football Lounge, with multiple TV screens, bars and food options. The Hollywood Derby, the biggest race of the new meet, and a craft beer festival are scheduled for Nov. 29. Admission is free on closing day Nov. 30. Admission is $6 for the general public and $3 for Diamond Club members, who get in free every Friday except for opening day. At the end of the meet work will begin to replace the synthetic turf course. Call (858) 755-1141 or visit delmarscene.com for more information.
up lots of yards and lots of wins. We figured he had something that he believed in.'' El Camino's selection committee had faith that Roberts lack of head-coaching experience wasn't a drawback. Among the five finalist two were head coaches, but the Wildcats went with Roberts. He replaced Pulu Poumele, who was 21-25 in four seasons. "It's a little bit of a risk but we checked John's references and everybody we talked to said he was ready be a head coach,'' Helgesen said. El Camino will navigate the rugged Avocado League West, which is like crossing a shallow creek filled with alligators. But Roberts, an Escondido resident, knows the waters he's dipping his toe into and isn't fazed. "North County football is at a high level and we will fit right in,'' Roberts said. "Ultimately, we don't want to fit in but do things above and beyond and get to the level of outstanding. "We have our standards set high here from the legend, Herb Meyer, so there is a tradition of doing things exceptional. The goal will be to get better every single day, be competitive week in and week out. We have to change the mindset of the athletes, the community and have them expect to win, no matter who we line up against.'' The Wildcats will lean on Eric Wilson, their standout wide receiver and cornerback, and Antonly Taele, a tight end and defensive end. Plus there's the Kish twins, Kevin and Connor, setting up shop in the middle of both lines. It's been a active summer for El Camino, with Roberts being the busiest bee. "It was about learning new schemes, solidifying the depth chart and finding out who are playmakers are going to be,'' Roberts said. Something was revealed about Roberts at a recent team barbecue. He invited the players and parents to his house, where a tasty Mexican buffet was presented that left everyone full. This Roberts is something else: teacher, coach and chef. Right? "I had it catered,'' he admitted. "I've got more important things to do than cook.'' His plate his full at El Camino and Roberts couldn't be happier.
rep football is here and new El Camino coach John Roberts has one task: go from being a Saint to a savior. "He has a lot of energy and is very positive,'' Wildcats athletic director Sean Helgesen said. "It's kind of infectious.'' El Camino is betting Roberts, the former St. Augustine Saints offensive coordinator, delivers hope and success. Roberts makes his debut on Friday night with the Wildcats playing Point Loma. It's a game that can't get here soon enough, but then again, Roberts eyes his to-do list and longs for more time. But he's not anxious because that would expose someone as inactive. Roberts hasn't been that since February, when named as only the fourth coach in El Camino history. Instead Roberts, an on-campus math teacher, has been crunching the numbers while his players collide in pads. Roberts is in his mid30s and realizes a dream he's had since he was 12. "I always wanted to coach football,'' Roberts said. "All my best role models as a young person were easily my coaches and teachers.'' Roberts' role at El Camino is simple, but not easy: bring back the good ol' days. The football program's pedigree is among the best in San Diego County with eight CIF titles under iconic coach Herb Meyer. "But we haven't won one in 15 years,'' Helgesen said. "But John keeps that at the forefront, he reminds the kids what is expected of them to be part of a program that gets back to those years of winning leagues and CIF championships.'' Roberts, a former Utah State running back, did just that last fall. His Saints throttled Mission Bay, 49-0, in the Division II title game. While the shutout was impressive, it was Roberts' pro-style, offensive scheme that routinely had St. Augustine speeding past the 30-point mark. "We were definitely looking for an offensive guy,'' Helgesen said.

vate the quality of wine everywhere. My friend Claude Robbins, who operates one of the highest quality International Wine & Spirits schools, out of Denver Colo., found some research on how private tastings for wine club members are much bigger sellers of wine than public tastings. The private gatherings average $294 per person compared to a $70 per person sale at public tastings, although it needs to be said that public tasting room fees are growing, generating revenue growth. Caymus Winery in Napa Valley scored a big success with their 40th anniversary 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet keepsake bottle. Owner Charlie Wagner shipped the special edition in May and sold 60,000 cases that month alone ($58). The word is spreading up and down California about an early wine grape harvest and what that will mean for the quality of the wines. At Laetitia Vineyard and Winery in Arroyo Grande, south of San Luis Obispo and makers of premium Pinot Noir, they got bud-break in February â&#x20AC;&#x201D; way too early â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at picking their 12 different clones of Pinot, managing sunlight, leaves, soil and water.

TASTE OF WINE is now my â&#x20AC;&#x153;gateâ&#x20AC;? and I am up to an average 200 emails daily that feature information on wines. At times I wish it were less. But every so often I see fascinating, game-changing news and I want to share it all. So, every so often I put a column out that is a sort of roundup of nice stuff that I love to uncork for my readers, like this one. Last night, I had the pleasure of tasting through the current vintage of Castello Banfi wines from Montalcino, Italy. The wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature Brunello vintage 2009 has been released after four years in barrel ($58.) The building up of Brunello to its most elegant position among the famous wines of the world is an inspiring story. As co-founder John Mariani says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a revolution that sparked a fine wine renaissance.â&#x20AC;? Recently, the renowned Cornell University in New York bestowed the 2014 Icon of Industry Award on the Mariani Family for their leadership and contributions both in industry research and education. I affectionately like to call John my electronic â&#x20AC;&#x153;pen palâ&#x20AC;? for his comments and insights on my TASTE OF WINE columns. Congratulations to John and to all the members of the Mariani family for all theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done to ele-
crisp and clean, refined by the wineryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to limited production craftsmanship. Its best example is the Laetitia Whole Cluster Pinot Noir, with notes of cassis, tobacco and peppercorn with a touch of sweet oak and black tea ($40). The delicate berries are removed from the stem prior to fermentation. The wine is taken to a whole new place and is a top new pick for TASTE OF WINE. Another great new pick from the Central Coast is the Niner Wine Estates 2010 Fog Catcher, a blend of 29 percent Cabernet, 29 percent Malbec, 24 percent Cab Franc, 9 percent Carmenere and 9 percent Petit Verdot. It won gold at the Central Coast Wine Competition 2014 ($65.) The Paso Robles AVA is getting bigger, expected to be split up into 11 districts within the existing 612,000 acre area.

The essence of gelato
â&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been a big fan of gelato yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been somewhat of a mystery to me. I recently discovered a company that makes gelato here in San Diego and is sold at several locations in North County. David Arato, native of Italy and a former professional cyclist is part of the team here in
San Diego and I had this conversation with him recently to learn more about gelato.
Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with what exactly is gelato and how is it different from ice cream?
Gelato is the Italian way of making ice cream. The main difference is that it contains approximately 60 percent less fat and calories than conventional American ice cream. Not all of our flavors contain dairy, but those that do are made with 2 percent milk. They are rich in flavor, not in fat! In addition, the end
result for those dairy free selections is an even lower
calorie count product. Unlike many ice creams and other frozen desserts there is a lot less air whipped into our product creating a sinfully satisfying mouthful that really packs a punch of flavor. A little gelato goes a long way. We also make a point to use natural ingredients, all of this resulting in a healthier treat for customers and their families.
Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that gelato is taken very seriously in Italy. Having grown up there, what are your memories of it and tell me about itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standing in the rich Italian TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON A18

David Gray pushes himself on ‘Mutineers’ By Alan Scully
David Gray reached the heights of stardom with his 1998 album “White Ladder.” He knows he may never experience that level of success again. After all, the vast majority of artists never sell seven million copies of their entire catalog of albums — much less reach that worldwide sales total on a single album like Gray did with “White Ladder.” But at least on an artistic level, Gray feels with his new album, “Mutineers,” he returned to a place he found himself when he started work on “White Ladder.” ‘”White Ladder’ was
an unself-conscious record. It just spontaneously happened,” Gray said in a late-July phone interview. “I opened the music up to other people and other ideas. And (“White Ladder” became) something that sounded still very much like my music, but it had a slightly different sound. It sounded like a record of now when we made it. That’s what we ended up with, something even stronger than I could have done on my own. And that was because I let go. I let other people in. And this record (“Mutineers”) has been the same in that way.” Gray openly admits that while the success of

“White Ladder” was thrilling, the aftermath wasn’t always pleasant, as he dealt with commercial expectations and sought to move forward musically. “It was a difficult experience as much as a wonderful one, and a powerful experience, a profound, life-changing experience,” Gray said, looking back on the time after “White Ladder.” “You can’t reverse it. You’ve got to go with it and find your own way through. I didn’t want to start playing stadiums or that stuff. I didn’t know what I wanted, to be honest. For awhile, I was just completely overwhelmed, not while we were going there, but when we got to the top, that rarified plateau.” Gray continued to release albums to declining levels of success. “A New Day At Midnight, his 2002 follow-up to “White Ladder,” was a bwig hit in the United Kingdom and sold respectably in the states. But 2005’s “Life In Slow Motion,” 2009’s “Draw The Line” and 2010’s “Foundling” delivered diminishing returns — and not just in sales. After releasing “Foundling,” Gray sensed he had grown bored with his musical methods and had reached a creative crossroads. But it took Gray a couple of failed attempts to start recorwding the new album before he realized he needed to push further to find ways to make his music feel fresh again. “Something else was needed, somebody else, a collaborator, a producer in the true sense of the word,” Gray said. He found that person in Andy Barlow of the electronic-leaning duo Lamb. “He was somebody who took me on creatively in a really strong and robust TURN TO DAVID GRAY ON 15

way. He really stood up to my ideas,” Gray said. “He pushed me into areas where I didn’t really know what I was doing or where we were going.” Gray knew he was in for a challenging experience early on. He brought in some 40 songs for Barlow to review, and the producer rejected all but a handful of those song ideas. “He preferred to have me go off and look and try to create something new, something different, which I just thought was an act of madness because there were so many things I already had in the bag,” Gray said. “He sort of sensed that there was more joy to be had going toward ideas where I didn’t have the lyric, where I didn’t have the full song. And he could throw ideas and sounds, crazy ideas, at me because I would be slightly off balance just trying to even figure out what it was myself. So that was how we worked.” For all that was different in the process of writing and recording “Mutineers,” the album will sound familiar to Gray fans. His songs remain in the burnished pop-folk mold of his other albums and pos-
sess the gracious melodies and literate lyrics that characterize his best work. The differences are mainly found in the margins of songs, with creative choices of instrumentation (the tinkering tones that introduce the title song, the lovely violin that provides a soothing bed for “Birds of the High Arctic”), smart and less-than-obvious instrumental parts (the rolling beats of “As the Crow Flies” and the organ and electric guitar that tastefully wash around Gray’s vocal on “Snow in Vegas”) and deftly applied production touches (the scratchy textures that accompany the sepia-toned piano of “Beautiful Agony”).
The songs are immediately appealing, but it’s the nuances that help give “Mutineers” the ability to surprise after several listens. The varied sounds — and especially the layered backing vocals on many of the songs — have prompted Gray to bring out a large, versatile band to tour behind “Mutineers.” “There are eight of us, and everyone’s playing an instrument and singing,” Gray said. “There’s quite a bit of layering of instrumentation on the record, but it’s the vocals really that I thought were the most key. So we had to get the power of them across.”

Local charter school is now enrolling for the new school year San Marcos — Taylion San Diego Academy is now enrolling for the new school year, with programs in home school, independent study and a virtual program serving North County. With locations in San Marcos and Vista, the charter school has a program to meet the needs of students in need of a more personalized education. The charter school opened in 2013, and has since grown to be a partner in the North County community. During its first year of existence, the school was granted accreditation by the Western Association of Schools (WASC), and has now expanded into Vista. The Taylion program is an option for students K-12, who find that a traditional school setting just isn’t a fit for them, academically or otherwise (bullies, etc.). A large number of their student population is high school students. “Kids that come to us, are for whatever reason, not thriving in a traditional public school setting,” said Taylion San Diego Academy’s Director of Business Development, Shannon Smith. “It can be for a variety of reasons: academics, socially, and they come to us where they find

a place where they can academically and socially thrive.” Taylion offers three separate learning environments for students: online education programs, a home-school program, and an independent study program. Programs are often blended to meet the needs of students. Some additional learning opportunities include small group instruction and online learning programs. 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 var-
ious instructional delivery methods based on the particular student’s learning style. When asked what parents should look for in a choice for education, Smith said, “I think, first of all, parents consider what their kid’s needs are. What is it that they think can help their kid to be successful, and then go look at what the options are, and that’s what is wonderful about charter schools. At Taylion San Diego Academy, we are able to customize their learning program. We offer independent study, online classes, homeschooling and a blended model. We are able to take each student, assess where they are at, determine what would best help them and design a program for them individually.” The San Marcos campus is located at 100 N. Rancho Santa Fe Rd. #110, San Marcos, CA 92069, while the Vista site is located at 1661-B South Melrose Drive, Vista, CA 92081. For more information regarding enrollment and upcoming parent information sessions, call (855) 77-LEARN or (760) 295-5564, or visit taylionsandiego.com.
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. At Academy of Arts and Sciences, students will be able to access a diverse range of Arts and Science electives. “We understand that students learn best when their education is tailored to

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!

Free Homeowner Workshop:
How to buy solar electricity wisely Home solar electricity systems don't need to be difficult, but there's no easy way to learn by experience before you deal with salespeople. The Solar Buyers Workshop is a non-commercial informal workshop where homeowners can gain the understanding to determine how much solar electricity is right for them, if any, and what it should cost, before seeking quotes from providers. Homeowners will be empowered to tailor a plan that fits their actual site, their personal power needs, and their budget, before
talking to a sales person. And they'll get a better understanding of fair pricing. Although solar energy can get technical, the workshop is discussed in plain English without industry jargon and is friendly to both non-technical and technical attendees.
The workshop discussion includes:
• Evaluating providers. • The engineering, permitting, and inspection process. • The Money: Pricing, financing, ownership and Federal credit. Armed with this knowledge, homeowners are better prepared to make a wise choice among prospective installers before signing any contracts or paying any deposits.

woman who would eventually become his wife. But his college plans ended after less than two years when a heart attack landed his father in the hospital for three months. Phillips left school in 1948 to help with Phillips Bootery. Following his father’s death in 1963, he took over the family business, but eventually closed it in 1984, nearly 50 years after it began. He then put his electrician skills back to work for a few years, helping his cousin develop medical equipment. He retired in 1990, and he and his wife, Barbara, moved to Solana Beach. But when his daughter announced a few years later that she wanted to go back to school, Phillips went back to work since tuition “wasn’t in my budget at that point,” he said. He started Seymour

Chocolate and Vanilla is a must, so is Pistachio and Hazelnut, all the fresh fruits of each season. But we also added our own special twist to some of those, and invented many flavors of our own along the way. Things like Mascarpone Lemon Zest, Opera (Pine nuts, Almonds, Pistachios, Hazelnuts), Speciale (creme brulee with a hint of salt, and chocolate chips), Mojito, Mediterraneo (Almond cream with orange zest, fig and mandarin swirls and Pistachio topping), and Watermelon are all big favorites in our stores.

It is a high quality dessert, but also a pastime, a meeting place, a night out spot when you don’t feel like the bar seen. In the summers in Italy, you will find Gelato stores packed until 1am with families and friends.

Bottega Italiana has developed quite a following. Tell me about your San Diego distribution and what makes your gelato different? We are in all the San Diego area Whole Foods Market locations, Hilton resorts, Catamaran resort, Chuao chocolatier stores, and many Italian restaurants. Our gelato difference is all in the quality. We make every flavor fresh to order and in small batches, with fresh ingredients. It is very easy to cut corners in food production, and gelato is no different. But we refuse to, and still squeeze those lemons, limes, and oranges one by one into our Gelato. We are constantly working on developing new flavors and searching for even better ingredients and are working on organic, vegan and gluten free gelato lines that will be available soon.
You have an interesting background as a professional cyclist. I’ve always been jealous of the mass quantities of calories cyclists can consume and stay thin.

But we regularly had days of eight hours on the bike, and trained seven days a week for 11 months a year, so not much calorie intake control was necessary.

On Tuesday, members of a group called Feminists Anonymous staged a rally on campus to bring awareness to sexual assaults on campus and to urge the university to take necessary steps to foster an environment where rape victims have access to reporting services and aren’t vilified for stepping forward. Carrying signs with messages such as “No Means No,” and chanting slogans such as “Wherever we go and however we dress, no means no and yes means yes,” the rally participants urged students and faculty to join in making the university a rapefree environment. “Growing up in the 21st century, there are so many things that perpetuate the rape culture…and places blame on survivors of abuse,” said Karen Guzman, a prominent local activist and a self-described “survivor of violence.” “We want to create a sense of community where victims are willing to speak out without fear of retribution,” she added.
Aug. 29, 2014 Schlesinger said that he is open to the idea of a restaurant or anything else, which is why he’s asked residents to attend his CARE (Creating A Revitalized Escondido) meetings. The property was zoned for 600 additional homes and he believes his plan is “truly a compromise,” since he’s only planning to build 430 homes and 25 percent is going to be space available to the public. Some parts of the initiative have not been decided. He said he hopes to form partnerships with the city and nonprofits like the Boys & Girls Club, and to maintain the pool and to hire a lifeguard, if it passes in November. As part of the plan, he will also contribute $1 million to the city to be used to purchase land to be designat-
ed as permanent open space. Residents were upset with Schlesinger after chicken manure was spread over the course this April. He said it was a huge mistake and it was cleaned immediately. He also said it was worth noting that he was never fined for the ordeal. If the initiative passes, the litigation from Schlesinger towards the city would wind down. The city would likely still be on the hook for legal fees but the damages owed would be minimal, said Schlesinger. “The worst thing for anyone is that this property just sits there like this for generations to come, fought over with legal fees, no economic value, all the homes surrounding it are plummeting and no one can use the space. That’s not beneficial for anyone.”
know…that doesn’t offer everybody… the immediacy that they may want to have in dealing with this threat, this very serious threat — but ultimately, it’s defeating the ideology through good governance.” Having deployed several times to Iraq and Afghanistan, Baumgarten said he really tries not to draw parallels between the two countries.
“It’s different,” he said. “And I think they (Afghans) have the opportunity to draw their own future. And I think Iraq is a cautionary tale to the leadership in Afghanistan. And I’m confident, given the next couple of years of U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan, that we can create the conditions to prevent something like Iraq.”
Some in attendance at the rally said they want to see the university do a better job of reporting incidents such as these in a timely fashion and educating both students and faculty about their roles in reporting a sexual assault. Nancy Cairns-Pietrangelo, a Womens Studies professor at the university, said she believes all faculty members should receive some sort of rape reporting training. Following last week’s crime report, Cairns-Pietrangelo said, the university sent out a notice to faculty reminding them of their roles as mandated reporters. “They tell you that you are a mandated reporter, but what does that mean?” Cairns-Pietrangelo said. “Explaining that role could be easily done for the faculty as an online course in maybe 15-20 minutes.” Additionally, Cairns-Pietrangelo said, she is concerned that some rape victims might have the impression that a visit to the student health center would count as reporting a rape. Student health centers, she said, are bound by patient confidentiality. “Some might not know that they have to go to the school’s Title IX coordinator or the police,” she said. “If they don’t do that, then the school’s Clery report will claim we have a rapefree campus, and some of these incidents will fall through the cracks.” On university campuses, issues of sexual violence and harassment fall under the auspices of Title IX, the landmark gender equity law that is often associated with athletics. University officials,
including the school’s Title IX coordinator were on hand at the rally. They said the school is doing everything to provide victims with necessary services and provide the public with timely information on incidents or occurrences of rape. The university set up a hotline on Friday to allow victims to confidentially report sexual assaults, and have trained campus healthcare professionals to provide victims of sexual assault options for reporting the allegations. School officials also said they are trying to adhere not only to the letter of the Clery Act, which, among other things, mandates schools report crimes in a timely fashion; they are trying to adhere to its spirit as well. “There have been a lot of concerns to balance, such as victim privacy as well as the integrity of the investigation, in addition to our duty to alert the campus in a timely fashion,” said Bridget Blanshan, the university’s Title IX coordinator. “But, we want the student body to know that we released the information at the earliest opportunity possible.” Guzman said she sees the actual reporting of the May incident as a step forward for the university. “Oddly enough, this is the first time I have heard about a (sexual assault) on campus, and we were told there have been several in the past,” she said. “It’s good to know about it. We want to know about it pretty quickly so…hopefully in the future they can do it at a little faster pace, so that it can be addressed and we can move forward with the healing process.”

Caltrans gives back land, horse trail planned By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — Caltrans will give back a stretch of land along state Route 76 to Oceanside and add native plants and a horse trail to the property. The 1,600-foot horse and pedestrian trail will be added between Melrose Drive and Jefferies Ranch Road. The trail site is unique because city utility workers need access to the property, and it sits between existing horse trails. “The city can get at utilities, the trail reconnects with the trail system in Jefferies Ranch, to let the city have access to the road (horse trail) made perfect sense,” Carl Savage, Caltrans project manager, said. Oceanside City Council voted to accept the land on Aug. 20. Currently the area between the expressway and
homes consists of dirt and some trees. “It’s weedy brush, it doesn’t look like much of anything,” Gary Kellison, city senior civil engineer, said. “With landscaping of native plants and a irrigation system it will definitely look better.” Caltrans will plant buckwheat, poppies, native sages and live oak trees beginning in Oceanside and continue through Bonsall as part of the required plant reestablishment, following the roadwork. Savage said care is given to place native, self-sustaining plant species that do not require extra watering after they are established with temporary irrigation systems. He added that Caltrans digs the irrigation lines out of the ground once the plants reach maturity. The trail added will be wide enough for city
and maintenance vehicles to access it, Kellison said. “And it has a good firm foundation where pretty much any kind of the public’s non-motorized use — horses, pedestrians, dirt bikes — would have no trouble using,” Kellison said. During the City Council meeting David DiPierro, city traffic engineer, said the trail could also serve as an emergency exit road. The Jefferies Ranch Community currently has one road to access the expressway. Work on the trail is slated to start in January, with the expectation of being opened to the public in January 2016. Caltrans retains the right to reclaim the land if the expressway needs to be expanded in future decades. Estimates for any expansion wouldn’t take place until 2050.
CSUSM offers new professional certificates SAN MARCOS — In an ongoing effort to offer educational programs that meet a clear workforce need, California State University San Marcos’ College of Business Administration and Extended Learning division have developed two new offerings in accounting and water leadership and management to provide students with the theoretical knowledge and practical training to enrich their careers. Free information sessions for the accounting program will be offered on campus on Aug. 29 and Sept. 5. An information session for the Water Leadership & Management program will be held on Sept. 9. To register or learn more about these programs, visit business certificates at csusm.edu/el/ certificateprograms /index.html or contact Alan Styles at astyles@csusm. edu.
The Water Leadership & Management certificate is designed for those currently working, or interested in working, in the water management industry and prepares middle level managers for leadership roles. Fall courses include Water Resource Planning & Development, Leadership in Water Organizations, and both Human Resource Management and Financial Management for the Water Industry. Classes meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the San Marcos campus and the certificate caps off with a practicum in the spring semester. The new accounting program was initially developed in response to the 150-unit state of California licensure requirements for the CPA designation that took effect in January 2014. Applicants for the license must now supplement
the 120-unit bachelor’s degree requirements with 30 semester units of accounting, ethics and business related courses that are available through CSUSM. Accounting courses that meet the requirements are offered weekday evenings this fall and include Tax Research, Current Issues in Accounting and Assurance Services and Information Technology. “These courses comprise the first stage of CSUSM’s new Professional Certificate in Accounting which is scheduled to launch in the spring,” said Alan Styles, chairman of the Accounting Department at CSUSM. “ All of the courses in this program offer a strong mix of both theoretical and practical knowledge and are designed for the student who wants to move on and eventually assume a leadership role in the field.”

Water desalination plant over 60% finished By Ellen Wright
CARLSBAD— With California’s severe drought in full swing, the water supply is more stressed than ever. The city announced mandatory water restrictions for residents but by this time next year, the desalination plant will offer residents a droughtproof water supply. Officials from Poseidon Resources, the com- Once the desalination plant is complete, the regional water supply will pany building the plant, be less dependent on imported water. Photo by Ellen Wright gave the City Council an update on Tuesday about the project. Almost 75 percent of pipeline has been laid along Cannon Road and Faraday Avenue and the project is 64 percent finished, according to Jessica Jones, community outreach manager at Poseidon Resources. The pipeline will run from the plant, which is next to the Encina Power Station, to the San Diego County Water Authority’s aqueduct in San Marcos. “We’ve got 500 more sticks of pipe to go,” said Casey Arndt, construction manager for the city. Deputy general manager at the water authority, Frank Belock, said there have already been a few headaches with the project and Arndt warned there will be more to come when pipeline is laid at the intersection of El Camino Real and Faraday Avenue.

Traffic lights nearby will need to be changed temporarily to accommodate the increase in traffic on College Boulevard. The road along Cannon Road and Avenida Encinas should be restored by mid-September, said Belock. Jones said Poseidon is also looking into different intake and discharge facilities for the plant since the existing facilities are connected to the Encina Power Station, which will be closed in 2017. Once a new system is selected, the company will need to apply for five permits, to stay in compliance with state ordinances that require the best use of technology to minimize the impact on marine life.
