Congestion to ease up on state Route 78 By Hoa Quach

REGION — State officials recently activated more ramp meters on state Route 78 with the goal of easing congestion. The California Department of Transportation, or Caltrans, increased its metering to a total of 22 on-ramps on both directions of the highway that attracts more than 100,000 cars daily. Affected locations include Civic Center Drive, Mar Vista Drive and Sycamore Avenue in the city of Vista. Lawrence Emerson, the branch chief of ramp metering for Caltrans, said the amount of vehicles traveling on SR-78 has increased over time. Nearly 20 years ago, commuters only saw ramp meters in the morning if they were

traveling westbound and in the evenings if they were traveling eastbound. But, times have

changed, Emerson said. “When I joined the Ramp Metering Branch 10 years ago, the meters were on from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

but the congestion started before 3 p.m. so we shifted it to start around 2 p.m.,” Emerson said. “About four to five years ago, we also found it was congested in the evenings going westbound but we weren’t metering at that time. We started activating the meters because congestion continued to increase.” Emerson said Caltrans decided to increase the number of ramp metering times after learning congestion was increasing on SR-78. “We have detection along the corridors that collects all the traffic data,” Emerson said. “Also, when people call to express their concerns, we look at what’s going on and if there’s enough reason to activate more meters. This

past year, we saw that traffic has increased and it was time to make a change.” Caltrans said roughly 122,000 to 170,000 cars drive on SR-78 daily. During peak times, 9,500 to 12,900 cars drive through SR-78. Emerson said SR-78 is unique as it only has three lanes compared to other freeways that have four to five lanes. The small number of lanes requires more management of traffic, he said. “We can’t get rid of all the congestion but we can help manage the flow,” Emerson said. “The ramp metering shrinks the congestion at the beginning and the end.” According to Caltrans, TURN TO CONGESTION ON 22

ESCONDIDO — While an arrest was made in the case of an adult female found dead in a parked car on the northbound El Norte Parkway onramp to Interstate 15 earlier this month, many details surrounding the death are still under wraps. On Tuesday, Escondido Police Lt. Justin Murphy held a press conference to announce the arrest of 38-year-old San Marcos resident Edward Andrew Long on June 21 in Las Vegas, Nev. Long is currently being held in a jail in Las Vegas awaiting extradition on first-degree murder charges of his girlfriend, 38-year-old Fontana, Calif., resident Elizabeth Antionette Perez. Law enforcement and emergency personnel responded to a report a little after 1 p.m. on June 13. Perez was found seated in the driver’s seat of her Mercury Sable with an apparent head injury.

‘Hidden jewel’ Playhouse opens 50th season By Tony Cagala

ESCONDIDO — Not long ago, a pair of teenaged brother actors summed up the 50-year history of the Patio Playhouse Theatre in a matter of two minutes and 12 seconds. Brothers Izaiah Rhinehart and Wyatt Rhinehart, both actors in the Patio Playhouse Theatre troupe, spoke in front of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors seeking community grants to help the theater gain another source of funding. Working off of a script they wrote themselves, those 50 years were told through what the brothers described as “tight-knit” snippets and banter. “We figured out a way to talk about 50 years in that sense,” Izaiah said when the Playhouse held a celebration and ribbon cutting on the theater’s 50 year anniversary on June 17. “We mentioned that Patio is all volunteer based and nobody gets paid and that it’s all been about bringing the community together for 50 years,” said Wyatt. “It’s just a great social outlet, it’s a great theater,” he added. “It’s a good way to be a part of theater without having to get charged for it.” Despite the brothers going over their allotted two-minute time limit

during their presentation to the Board of Supervisors, District 3 Supervisor Dave Roberts commended the two thespians during the ribbon cutting for doing such a “phenomenal job.” The Playhouse ended up receiving two grants: a Community Enhancement

Grant of $1,500 and the Neighborhood Reinvestment Program Grant for $6,500. Roberts said he thinks it’ll be the first time the Playhouse will receive a Community Enhancement Grant. Roberts, a Solana Beach resident and regu-

lar attendee of the North Coast Repertory Theatre, admitted that he didn’t know a lot about the Patio Playhouse. It’s a refrain all too familiar with Brenda Townsend, the Playhouse’s youth theater director. But there are probably a lot of reasons for

it, Townsend explained, including the theater’s almost-hidden location on Grand Avenue. But as Townsend sees it, the Playhouse is more than just community theater. “I think it can fill many needs in people’s lives, for kids, for adults,

and they need something,” said Townsend. “They need a job, they need friends, they just moved here (and) they need to meet people.” The theater also doesn’t charge performers to audition for shows, which might make it one of, if not the only theater in the county that does that. Yet, the cast and crews do take themselves seriously, Townsend said, when it comes to their craft and the theater serving as a place of mentorship. “It’s somewhat one of our jewels of the city,” said Escondido City Councilman Ed Gallo. “They kind of fly under the radar screen. They’re not a flashy group.” He became aware of the theater group back in the late ‘70s when they used to perform in a 300seat theater at the former site of the Vineyard Shopping Center. Their 80-seat black box theater is now at 201 E. Grand Ave. However, with the theater being self-sufficient when it comes to finding and making funds to keep going, (30 percent of funds come through ticket sales and the rest is through donations, Townsend explained) Gallo said he’d like to see a couple of TURN TO PLAYHOUSE ON 22

Department of Energy speaks on SONGS spent nuclear fuel By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — A consent-based sitting on San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) spent fuel storage was held in Oceanside last Wednesday. David Victor, chair of the SONGS Community Engagement Panel, and Oceanside Councilman Jerry Kern, a panel member, led the meeting. The sitting meeting’s focus was to reach consensus on a location for permanent spent fuel storage, which has seen delays. The first meeting asked for community input. John Kotek, acting assistant secretary for the national Office of Nuclear Energy, and Andrew Griffith, associate deputy assistant secretary for national Fuel Cycle Technologies, answered stakeholders’ questions via speakerphone. Concerns were aired on fuel storage, oversight checks and balances, and transporting spent fuel to a permanent storage site. Daniel Dominguez, executive board member of Utility Workers Union of America Local 246, and one of the 3,500 workers who maintain SONGS spent nuclear fuel, said spent fuel is currently extremely safe in wet and dry onsite storage. He added temporary off site dry cask storage would be safer, and the safest place for spent

Dominguez said the important question for him is when will the federal government take responsibility for SONGS spent fuel. Currently the agreement is for the federal government to assume responsibility when fuel is in permanent storage. The push is to have the government agree to own responsibility during temporary storage, which may happen sooner. Sites in New Mexico and Texas are in the process of securing permits to operate temporary storage facilities, which may serve as a future home for SONGS spent fuel. Paperwork to open the facilities is expected to be in hand in two to three years. The shared goal of stakeholders is to move spent fuel away from its current geologically unstable, densely populated location as soon as possible. Future sitting meetings will develop a framework for stakeholders to work with consultants, gain information and clarification, and work together to find a solution to store spent fuel. Sitting meetings are held Oceanside Councilman Jerry Kern, left, and David Victor, chair of the SONGS Community Engagement Panel, host a sitting meeting to address nuclear spent fuel storage.

Four-alarm fire tears through vacant Escondido building Thursday By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — A four-alarm fire at a vacant building at 559 N. Hale Ave., which used to house Talone’s Meat Market erupted at 8:52 a.m. on Thursday, according to city officials. Upon arriving on the scene, the Escondido Fire Department found the blaze had broken through the roof. As of 12:30 p.m. Thursday the fire scene was still active, however, fire crews appeared to have the blaze under control. Several fire agencies, including Vista, Carlsbad and others from around the county responded to the blaze. Five ladder companies were on scene and at the height of the blaze, according to a city official, at least 96 firefighters were battling the fire.

According to Escondido Fire Department Chief Russ Knowles at least one fire crew will remain on scene overnight to monitor the building, which has totally collapsed. At of press time Knowles wasn’t speaking on a cause to the blaze, but said the building had no electricity running to it. He said that four transients were in the building, but those four appeared to have gotten out, however, questions over whether any others were inside during the fire are still unknown. Fire officials will conduct a search on Friday to confirm that no other persons were in the building, according to an update from the city. “Until the structural integrity of the building is assured and the remaining hot spots

are extinguished, no one will be permitted to enter the building,” the news release read. Knowles said firefighters fought the blaze as a “defensive fire,” dousing the building from the outside because temperatures inside the building made it too risky to send firefighters in. A short section of Hale Avenue will remain closed between the railroad tracks and Tulip Street as the mop up continues. It was the second biggest blaze in Escondido that Knowles could recall. The first being when an apartment complex caught fire in 2007, he said. Sprinter operations have since resumed and SDG&E restored electricity to businesses in the nearby area.

City should have say over drone use By John Herron

Letters to the Editor RE: Drone regulations The f.a.a. spent years drafting a 600 page document requiring drone pilots to register, carry a license, put their registration number on the drone and follow numerous rules. Somehow, Encinitas feels they have the right to over ride the f.a.a. because some people find them irritating. If they truly believe they this maybe they should address a really annoying problem. Small private planes. I constantly see them flying at illegal, dangerous altitudes over homes , beaches etc. The noise is equivalent to a hundred drones. As for privacy rights; they are looking down on us at drone like altitudes and could easily have a camera like a drone. Encinitas needs to handle relevant problems and leave personal ” irritations” to themselves. Ron Jensen, Online comment RE: Carlsbad plots 3-year water savings course (June 17, 2016) How about insisting that all new residential and commercial development be built with rain reclamation systems? How about retrofitting existing buildings to do the same? Look

at what they do in Bermuda where their only source of fresh water is rainwater. I don’t see them building any desalination plants there. Time to get smart and time to get smarter people making important decisions. Don, Online comment Investigative reporting Make it clear that I am a fan of Mr. (Aaron) Burgin’s work. Hopefully, I made that clear. He is one of the few out there that actually pounds the pavement. I will continue to look forward to his efforts. To have someone acting as he does, to investigate major issues, is rare for a small paper and I hope the readers and publishers of the Coast News Group appreciate and recognize his sizable contribution to the paper. John Donovan, Online comment Yoga and EUSD The study conducted by USD is hardly worthy of publication but in defense of its authors, study limitations are well described throughout the document. For example, randomized teacher response rates were noted as, “uniformly poor” and parent response rates

were as low 1.2 percent. Further, focus groups represented less than 1 percent of EUSD parents and likely subject to response bias. What is troubling is (Tim) Baird’s willingness to use information gleaned from the study or focus groups to justify the program and that the board passively supports his contentions. So while science in our schools remains underfunded, Baird and the board have chosen to use taxpayer money to support a program driven by agnotology. As for the politics, both Baird and (Emily) Andrade seem confused regarding their responsibilities. Following the law is an expectation of all citizens, making good judgment calls is the expectation of leaders. What is in question here is whether Baird has used good judgment as a leader. If a significant number of folks that read this article feel the answer is “no,” then he will lose the trust of tax payers, which in turn will hurt schools, teachers, students and ultimately our society. Aaron thanks for a wonderful piece of investigative reporting. MJM, Online comment

Cities across the United States continue to adopt sensible rules addressing low-cost drones that have flooded consumer markets — like L.A. (the second largest city in the country), Chicago, Miami, West Hollywood, Manhattan Beach, and others. A recent 7th Circuit decision addressed the doctrine of preemption in another industry, where Judge Easterbrook said: “(the Constitution) establishes a federal republic where local differences are cherished as elements of liberty, rather than eliminated in a search for national uniformity.” The FAA released data on March 25 revealing drone safety reports “increased dramatically” last year. This shows recreational drone owners increasingly flout “safety guidelines” and fly illegally because drone industry educational campaigns have no teeth. And a constant stream of dangerous drone incidents illustrates the public safety issues that exist and should be addressed by responsible local legislators. Allowing unpiloted aircraft to operate without any enforceable rules is like throwing a bunch of operating Cuisinarts into the air and hoping for the best. And if you question that, consider:

nce California’s primary election season ends in early June, most candidates go into a sort of statis for almost three months, until just before the traditional Labor Day start of the fall political season. But if Loretta Sanchez is smart — and no one ever suggested she’s not — she will not wait months before resuming an aggressive campaign for the U.S. Senate. Sanchez on Election Night in early June eased into a November runoff against state Attorney General Kamala Harris,

beating out five Republicans who split the GOP vote while Democrats – already more numerous – were only divided two ways. There’s every reason to believe that if Sanchez slacks off over summer vacation, she’ll put herself out of politics indefinitely. All post-primary polling has shown she lags far behind Harris. Just such slacking off is a California political tradition. To keep campaigning means keeping up the spending and energy levels of the primary season. Just a month before the June vote, Sanchez had raised slightly over $2 million, a paltry sum compared with the $30 million to $40 mil-

lion that’s usually spent on successful top-of-ticket California races. The best historical lesson about what can be accomplished by staying active on the campaign trail was taught in 1978 by current Gov. Jerry Brown, when he sought reelection to a second term during his first gubernatorial era. When the primary ended that year, incumbent Brown trailed his upcoming Republican challenger, the popular state Attorney General Evelle Younger, a former district attorney of Los Angeles County, in all polls. California was not yet a Democratic stronghold in TURN TO ELIAS ON 16

The FAA is finally signaling to local governments, like Encinitas, they are free to tailor supplemental drone regulations...” tion and Reform Act of 2012 says model drones must be operated in accordance with a community-based set of safety guidelines, so the community should set the rules for the operation of recreational drones. Many drone hobbyists have been misinformed. Preemption arguments by drone lobbyists typically begin with the false premise the FAA controls the airspace down to the lowest blade of grass in our backyards, and that’s wrong. Local regulations typically do not interfere with the FAA’s jurisdiction of “navigable airspace” as codified in 49 U.S.C. § 40103(b).

This is generally 500 feet, or 1,000 feet in congested areas. Drone corporations spent millions lobbying the FAA, Congress and executive agencies to include strong preemption language in the rule for small unmanned aircraft systems (“small UAS,” or commercial drones) rules released last week, but the FAA expressly rejected federal preemption over state and local drone laws. The FAA said: “certain legal aspects concerning small UAS may be best addressed at the State or local level.” The FAA’s conscious decision to exclude a federal preemption provision for commercial drones in the “navigable airspace” reinforces the important role of cities in promoting safe and efficient drone activity in the nation’s airspace. The FAA is finally signaling to local governments, like Encinitas, they are free to tailor supplemental drone regulations — for recreational drones and small commercial drones — to suit the unique needs of their jurisdictions and preferences of their residents. More than 3 million people live in San Diego County, and more than 60,000 people live in Encinitas. The notion that low flying consumer drones can do whatever they want in the airspace just above our backyards, homes and public parks without any local regulation, is irresponsible. Management of this awesome technology is essential. That is why our responsible city leaders — as a matter of public safety and good public policy — have a legitimate say about drone operations in our community. John Herron is an Encinitas resident.

Promenade at Creekside Apartments open in San Marcos By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — San Marcos officials celebrated the grand opening of the first major project in the city’s Creek District, the city’s long-awaited and highly anticipated downtown district. The Promenade and Creekside Apartments, a 65-unit affordable housing complex, has been open for several weeks, with all of the units being filled by families. But on Tuesday morning, dignitaries — includ-

ing San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond and council members Rebecca Jones and Kristal Jabara — met to tour the property and cut a ceremonious ribbon to christen the major step in the Creek District development. “We are honored to help meet the desperate need for affordable housing and be the first project in the new San Marcos Creek District. We hope this will inspire additional affordable housing and spur further

development,” added Steven Bram of the Encinitas-based Opportune Companies, one of two companies that partnered on the project. The one, two and three bedroom apartments are set aside for households earning between 30 percent and 60 percent of the area median income for San Diego County as published by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Monthly rents range

from $342 to $1,070, well below prevailing market-rate rents in the area, according to a news release. Amenities include a community room with kitchen, computer lab, fitness center, media room, pool, tot lot, playground, picnic and BBQ areas, community gardens, a public paseo area adjacent to a 1.5-acre future Promenade Park, and an onsite bus stop that connects to Sprinter, Amtrak, the Metro Link, and

Residents will be provided with access to a variety of free on-site services through the community learning center, including 20 hours per week, year round after school child learning and tutoring, reading and literacy, arts and crafts, youth empowerment, school and college preparation programs, and 60 hours of adult education, including fitness and nutrition, comTURN TO APARTMENTS ON 16

Escondido to operate Vista aims for crime-free housing on $184.4M budget By Hoa Quach

By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — On Friday, the city’s Fiscal Year 2016-17 $184.4 million operating budget will come into being. The City Council approved the budget earlier this month with a focus on public safety, economic development and stability and neighborhood improvements. The largest portion of the budget is the general fund, which comes in at $92.6 million. City staff developed a balanced budget with projected 2 percent and 4 percent increases in expenditures and total revenue, respectively. “I believe a balanced budget like this is good for us,” Mayor Sam Abed said. “We need to live within our means. I am happy with the priorities. I think they are great for the community.” Enterprise funds account for $80 million, while the other remaining funds total about $12 million. The General Fund Reserve balance is $16.9 million. Enterprise funds, which include water and wastewater, is down $1.9 million due to a $3.4 million decrease in purchased water, $500,000 less in water treatment chemicals, which are offset by a $400,000 increase in operating supplies. The budget, however, is balanced with the use of $9.2 million in capital project reserves.

Recycled water sales revenue is projected to total $500,000 more than Fiscal Year 2015-16. Sales tax remains the city’s largest funding source, which is expected to come in at $37.2 million, or 40 percent, and is a four percent, or $1.57 million, increase over the previous year. According to city staff, the increase is due to a rise in auto sales, building materials wholesale and restaurants, which account for 40 percent of sales tax revenue. Property tax, meanwhile, is also slated for a 4 percent increase for $12 million, or 26 percent, of the total sources. Positive growth in home prices with an annual increase of 10.6 percent in the median home price in Escondido are contributing factors to the rise in taxes, according to the city. In addition, home sales are up 8.8 percent. Salaries are expected to increase by two percent, or $900,000, while PERS contributions are also expected to rise by $900,000, or five percent, due to rate increases, Sheryl Bennett, director of administrative services, explained. Police and fire services, though, combine for the largest expenditure at $62 million combined, while the public works department will receive $11.6 million.

VISTA — The city of Vista is ramping up its efforts to reduce crime and service calls at multifamily complexes. The City Council unanimously approved an ordinance to adopt the Crime Free Multifamily Housing Program, which leaders hope will ultimately reduce the number of service calls and crimes at residential properties with 10 or more units. Under the program, the city will have the authority to require complexes with 10 or more units to participate in the program if the “complex exceeds a threshold for service calls to the Sheriff’s Department in at least two of three successive six-month periods.” “The threshold is exceeded if a complex has calls for service within a six month period that are equal to or greater than 25 percent of the units in the complex. For example, if a complex had 40 units, it would exceed its six-month threshold if it had 10 or more calls for service. “When this threshold is exceeded in any two six month periods within an 18 month time frame, a Code Enforcement Officer may issue a Finding of Noncompliance,” according to the staff report. The property owner would then need to remedy certain conditions on the site and meet certain qualifications such as at-

tending an eight-hour seminar on crime-free multifamily housing provided by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department or hosting a crime-free multifamily tenant meeting. The ordinance also allows for eviction if any prohibited activity is done on the property. The importance of the

program was embraced by the City Council. However, Councilman John Franklin urged his peers to define the type of service calls after one property owner expressed concern during public comments. “This is creating some uncertainty,” Franklin said. “Here’s another regulation that’s poorly defined and it’s going to give someone at City Hall the ability to make the definition.” Franklin said he wanted to give property owners and their tenants examples of service calls that would be considered

a red flag under the program. “I just want to demonstrate that we’re good regulators and we’re listening to the people we’re regulating,” Franklin said. “I like to give government narrow powers.” After a brief discussion, the City Council agreed to adopt the ordinance but that it include a list of exempted service calls, a one year sunset clause that would allow city leaders to revisit the ordinance, and allowing for 60 days before enacting the program. Councilman John Aguilera praised the program, saying it would reduce crime in Vista. “This is going to help, quite a bit, in cleaning our city up,” Aguilera said. There are currently 160 multifamily developments in Vista with 10 or more units. From July 1, 2014 through Dec. 31, 2015, a total of 55 of those developments had calls for service in excess of the threshold requiring participation in the Crime Free Multifamily Housing Program, according to the staff report. The annual fees for the Crime Free Multifamily Housing Program are $850 for complexes between 10 to 50 units, $1,000 for complexes between 51 to 100 units, $1,250 for complexes between 101 to 200 units, and $1,500 for complexes with 201 units or more.

San Marcos to consider district elections By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — San Marcos could become the second North County city to elect its council members by electoral districts rather than at large. The inland city is considering the change after a law firm threatened to sue the city, alleging the atlarge electoral system discriminates against Latino voters. Kevin Shenkman, an attorney with the Malibu-based law firm Shenkman and Hughes, first contacted the city in December in a letter that alleged that the city’s atlarge system “dilutes the ability of ... Latinos... to elect the candidate of their choice or otherwise influence the outcome of San Marcos’ council elections.” According to the letter, San Marcos, which is 37 percent Latino, had not elected a minority council member in 22 years. The city’s most recent election in 2014 was cancelled after no candidates emerged to challenge the incumbents. The San Marcos City Council discussed the matter in closed session at the June 14 council meeting. The council emerged from closed session and announced they were already in the process of reviewing the issue and working with a consultant to develop potential district boundaries for the council and public review. San Marcos is working with Douglas Johnson of National Demographic Corp., considered a leader in districting and redistricting at a local, regional and state level. San Marcos’ next election is in November, when Rebecca Jones and Sharon Jenkins are up for re-election. North County has been the target of one such legal action before. Escondido moved to district elections in 2013 after settling a 2011 lawsuit filed by five residents who made a similar argument as being made in San Marcos. That city now has four council districts, including one made up primarily of Latino voters, and the mayor is voted at large. Shenkman’s firm did not represent the plaintiffs in the Escondido case.

Vista Kiwanis applaud oldest member VISTA — Recently the Kiwanis Club of Sunrise Vista celebrated Ethel (“Mom” to her Kiwanis family) Arrowsmith’s 103rd birthday. According to her fellow Vista Kiwanians, there’s a secret to aging with grace and a lot of that has to do with attitude. If there is one person on God’s green earth that embraced the philosophy of making lemonade out of lemons, it is Ethel. A framed picture of herself, taken in her forties, was presented to her by her fellow members of the Kiwanis Club of Sunrise Vista which they shared a birthday message on the picture mat. She became a member of the Kiwanis Club of Sunrise Vista “at the age of 100 years young.” To mark her 50th birthday, Arrowsmith

traveled around the world as the secretary to the dean on the University of the Seven Seas. Earning her AA degree from Glendale Community College, at the age

of 62, is a testament to a love of learning and a lifelong reader (she has been known to have more than one book going at a time). With the name of Ethel R. Arrowsmith, (ERA),

she found her cause célèbre — The Equal Rights Amendment. Arrowsmith marched at many rallies in Illinois, in favor of granting equal rights to women. She will still proudly don her ERA and NOW pins and talk about this very exciting time in her life. In her late 90s, she took on a speaking career, creating programs around women inventors that was presented at various churches, Kiwanis Clubs and other venues. She has also given programs on Susannah Wesley and the Oregon Trail — always portraying a strong female facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Arrowsmith’s philosophy on life is always the message — “All things are possible with God and hard work.”

MLB, Padres give Escondido a new diamond By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — A new shiny diamond is coming to the city. Major League Baseball and the San Diego Padres Foundation will hold a dedication ceremony for a new baseball diamond at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego — Conrad Prebys Branch, 115 Woodward Ave., at 2 p.m. July 9. This site was chosen by MLB as a 2016 All-Star Community Legacy proj-

ect. An existing parking lot and green space has been transformed into a multi-purpose baseball diamond complete with manual scoreboard, moveable fences and a large shade structure. Escondido Mayor Sam Abed, who will participate in the dedication ceremony, expressed appreciation for the legacy project noting, “Thanks to the generosity of MLB and the Padres, countless children in our community will

have the chance to realize their dreams both on and off the field.” “This project would not be possible without the long-term partnership between the City of Escondido and the Boys & Girls Club. We are grateful for the support of a caring community,” BGCGSD President/CEO Danny Sherlock added. The 2016 All-Star Legacy initiative includes community improvement projects designed to leave

Let’s legalize ‘Safe & Sane’ fireworks Northbound vince vasquez


s we approach Independence Day, North County residents should consider restoring an old American tradition — permitting the sale and use of safe and sane fireworks for fun and family entertainment. “Safe and sane” refers to fireworks that do not explode or fly; it does not include firecrackers, bottle rockets, roman candles, or any explosive, airborne projectiles. Think sparklers, smoke balls, snakes, and snaps. They’ve been permitted under state law since the 1950s, and are left to individual municipalities to determine how they’re regulated. Today, nearly 300 cities and unincorporated communities in California permit the sale and discharge of safe and sane fireworks during the Fourth of July season, including 10 cities in Orange County. One of the most recent O.C. cities to approve fire-


T he C oast News - I nland E dition

works, Anaheim, did so by a public vote in 2014, with 2015 as the pilot year for the program. The ballot measure approved by voters gave the City Council the power to regulate fireworks — and the framework they subsequently developed was stringent. They designated limited times and days for fireworks sales and discharge, and stiffened penalties and fines for the possession and use of illegal fireworks and violations of the use of safe and sane fireworks. Fireworks were prohibited from parks, parking lots, residential streets, and within the fire-prone Anaheim Hills community. Sales were coordinated through one central retail location and vendor. One of the main arguments in favor of legalizing safe and sane fireworks in Anaheim was that community nonprofits and charitable organizations could receive a portion of the sale proceeds. In all, $85,200 in proceeds went to support community nonprofits and programs last year, with 53 community groups receiving proceeds. Other cities have generated far more revenue through fireworks sales; for example, Huntington Beach raised more than $700,000 for communi-

ty nonprofit groups over a two-year pilot program earlier this decade. Public safety-wise, Anaheim’s pilot program was a success; the 2015 Fireworks After Action Report noted that no fireworks-related fires or injuries were reported in Anaheim on Fourth of July that year. Allowing North County residents to purchase and use safe and sane fireworks, with restrictions, is both reasonable and manageable. Community groups could benefit from sale proceeds, and elected officials could make regulatory adjustments based on a one or two-year pilot program. If a repeal of the ban on safe and sane fireworks reached the ballot, I think most North County voters would vote yes. Fireworks ballot measures have won strong majorities across the state, reversing bans that have been on the books for decades. In all, more than 1.5 million Orange County residents have the freedom to purchase and discharge safe and sane fireworks this July 4. Why not North County?

a lasting impact throughout San Diego County. The charitable program is done in tandem with the upcoming 87th MLB AllStar Game on July 12. The initiative is made possible by the donation of nearly $5 million toward these local projects supporting youth or veterans, as well as to national charitable organizations.

lright, people! Jump, shout, knock yourself out. Wave your hands in the air and shout “Hallelujiah!” You can do this as many times as you like. I am prone to do it on a moment’s notice, because my daughter has finished her chemotherapy. She is a very worn-out young woman, but she handled 14 sessions of chemo very, very well. She did everything right and I am pretty much in awe of her strength. And she is still smiling. Well, unless the doctor is describing anything invasive or graphic, at which point she throws up. Hey. We all have our weak spots. This is a young woman who has loathed shots, and medical poking and prodding of any sort, all her life. During the past 6 months, she first got daily shots to gather and store ovum, then got shots three times every week to keep her blood count up, and then…yes, there’s more…she had to give blood every week the day before her chemo session. Talk about your pincushion. No whining, no complaining, no nonsense. She just did what

had to be done. And she’s isn’t only finished with chemo. She has no cancer in her lymph nodes, the mammogram and ultrasound of her right side was clean and clear, and she does not carry the BRCA cancer gene. These are all wonderfully good things. She is, essentially, cancer-free now. However, to seek and destroy any wayward, hanging-about cancer cells, she will begin six weeks of radiation next week. The doc said, from the start, they were going to be very aggressive with her treatment. That works for us. Think cool, healthy thoughts her way, as radiation can burn and blister the skin at the site. She is good, though, and focused now on getting her immune system back in the game and feeling a bit less like she just finished a marathon run. There is an ad I love, for an insurance company, that I think sums up the last year, and life in general. It says, “In a place, far away, there is the Warehouse of the Unexpected. You never order from it — but, oh, does it deliver.” We are officially celebrating with an End-ofChemo, Mexican food and Margaritas party tomorrow. Salud y largo vida to us all.

Rolling down the St. Lawrence river

Passengers from Adventure Canada’s ship, Ocean Endeavor, land on the beach about a mile from the entrance to Reford Gardens in Canada’s Quebec Province. Photos by Jerry Ondash

hit the road e’louise ondash


he first thing you notice about the St. Lawrence River

is its size. It’s so big that it’s the longest east-west river in North America. So big that it more resembles the ocean. So big that nine species of whale, including 400 belugas, call it home. So big that, from the middle, you can’t see either shore, home to 6 million Americans and Canadians. The St. Lawrence River is so big, so fast and so cold that we quickly forget about any fantasies of a leisurely paddle or swim, which makes the converted Russian ferry on which we are traveling seem like the sensible alternative for cruising this 744-mile-long

waterway. It is Day Three of our 11-day cruise with Adventure Canada on the Ocean Endeavor. The trip began in Quebec City and will eventually deliver us in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the farthest eastern point on North America. This is the first year that Adventure Canada has offered this itinerary. Our destination today, Reford Gardens, is 220 miles northeast and downriver of Quebec City. It sits at the neck of the Gaspe Peninsula where the Metis River empties into the St. Lawrence. Aboard the198-passenger Ocean Endeavor are numerous expert naturalists, birders, geologists, historians, artists, authors and musicians who entertain and educate us on their respective fields. But on this morning, we welcome aboard an outsider — Alexander Reford — who has come to give us a crash course on the amazing gardens that we will soon visit. They were designed and

created by Elsie Reford, his wealthy, independent-minded, great-grandmother. (She inherited fortunes from her father and uncle, who founded the Canadian Pacific Railway). Elsie was 54 in 1926 when she began her grand garden experiment — cultivating a collection of both common and rare blooms that were never meant to flourish at 48 degrees north latitude in a short growing season. Many bulbs and seeds were imported from faraway countries, and because of Elsie’s determination, leadership and a lot backbreaking work, her 44 acres of forest, hillsides, river and streams is home to more than 3,000 thriving native and exotic species.

An hour late after Alexander’s presentation on the ship, passengers board 20 Zodiacs. After a somewhat choppy ride, we are pulled ashore by the ship’s staff, using a small ramp built especially to accommodate our motorized rubber rafts. Then it’s a mile-plus hike to the entrance of Reford Gardens, where a guide escorts us throughout most of the 17 gardens, including the House Garden with its crabapple and shrub roses; the Blue Poppy Glade where the rare Himalayan blue poppy unexpectedly survives; the Bird Garden where birds of all kinds congregate 24 Visitors at Reford Gardens stroll the meandering paths that run through hours a day; the Azalea 17 gardens and 44 acres.

Nonprofit Solutions for Change begins construction for homeless VISTA — Solutions for Change will be building an affordable housing community in Escondido, which the organization estimates will be completed in the summer of 2017. This new construction of 33 units of affordable housing, funded by public and private revenue streams, is at 1560 S. Escondido Blvd. The Escondido planning

commissioners unanimously approved the Solutions for Change housing project in 2015 by financing $2.1 million in affordable housing funds for a mixed-use project of 33 housing units with offices and a community center. The California Department of Housing and Community Development and Federal Home Loan Bank

also are providing funding, and Escondido council members approved an additional $86,000 from a San Diego Foundation-administered fund. “Solutions for Change is taking people who were falling deeper into poverty and turning them around to where they are performing in the community as assets, not liabilities,” Vista Councilman John Masson said.

Twenty-two of the homes will be 800-squarefeet, with 11 homes a little larger at 1,000-square-feet. Applicants for housing must earn less than 80 percent of area median income. “We’re honored to work with the city of Escondido to help solve family homelessness,” said Chris Megison, president and CEO of Solutions for Change. “We recog-

nize that homelessness will always be a part of society, but programs to address it don’t have to be wastefully expensive and ultimately unsuccessful. Individual transformation for those who want to get off the streets can occur opportunity and accountability. This kind of affordable housing is a tremendous asset to help end family homelessness.”

Leave fireworks to professionals REGION — With the Fourth of July just a few days away, the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District would like to remind everyone that fireworks, an exciting and traditional part of our Independence Day celebrations, are best left to the experts. Aside from professional displays, all fireworks are illegal in San Diego County. This includes, but is not limited to, firecrackers, torpedoes, sky-rockets, Roman candles, sparklers, snap caps, and poppers. Legal firework shows done by professional pyrotechnicians can be viewed throughout San Diego County. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), an estimated average 18,500 reported fires were started by fireworks each year from 200915. In 2014, an estimated 10,500 people were treated for firework-related injuries in hospital emergency rooms throughout the United States. In addition to those fire injuries, thousands of people, including children and teens, are injured every year while using consumer fireworks. Even something as “harmless” as a sparkler, which burns at over 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, can cause critical injuries and pose a serious fire hazard. Due to the high risk of injury and fire presented by these items, especially with the current drought conditions, possessing fireworks in San Diego County is a misdemeanor.

A strong work ethic has never been a problem for G-Eazy, so maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that in less than 18 months, he has followed up his breakthrough 2014 album, “These Things Happen,” with the recently released “When It’s Dark Out.” The new album — his first under a deal with RCA Records — arrived on Dec. 4 despite the fact that G-Eazy toured into the early months of 2015 behind “These Things Happen” and needed to include time for the manufacture and promotional set-up of the new album — a process that can take a few months for a major label release. “I don’t know how we did it,” G-Eazy said in a recent phone interview. “I guess just by not taking any days off. I went from the end of the last tour for the last album (straight) to the studio, just set up shop, locked the doors and put my phone on airplane mode and made the album.” G-Eazy had good reason to push himself to make “When It’s Dark Out.” “These Things Happen” debuted at number three on “Billboard” magazine’s all-genre album chart and topped the magazine’s HipHop and Rap album charts — an impressive showing for an album that was independently released (although it was distributed by RED, one of the industry’s leading distributors). Now G-Eazy (real name Gerald Gillum) is being touted as a candidate to be hiphop’s next superstar, having seen his single “Me, Myself & I” (featuring Bebe Rexha)

top “Billboard’s” Hot Rap, Mainstream Top 40 and U.S. Rhythmic singles charts (and reach No. 7 on the allgenre Hot 100 singles chart) G-Eazy’s ascension didn’t happen by magic. That aforementioned work ethic played a key role in getting him to the cusp of stardom. Raised by a single mother in the San Francisco bay area, G-Eazy got into hip-hop as a teenager, and during college at Loyola University in New Orleans, began releasing a steady stream of mixtapes, beginning with the 2008 release, “The Tipping Point.” A key point came with the 2011 release of his mixtape “The Endless Summer. It included an updated version of Dion’s 1961 hit,

“Runaround Sue,” generated more than 4 million You Tube views, and “The Endless Summer” mixtape gained widespread acclaim for the way G-Eazy built his tracks and his raps around ‘50s/early ‘60s-era doo-wop and early rock and roll samples — a unique blending of retro and modern. The exposure from “The Endless Summer” enabled G-Eazy to start what became a relentless touring schedule. In addition to headlining shows, he also landed a spot on the 2012 Warped tour and snagged opening slots on tours by Lil Wayne, Drake, Shwayze and others. He also started to get considerable attention for his race (he’s white), his looks (he’s often compared to film

idol James Dean) and his sharp sense of style. But his music remains G-Eazy’s biggest selling point. With “These Things Happen,” he started to move away from the retro element of “The Endless Summer,” and now on “When It’s Dark Out,” any traces of that style are pretty much gone. To G-Eazy, though, it only made sense to evolve his sound. “I think it was important as a creative (artist), with every project or body of work you set out to put together to push yourself and move forward, take risks,” he said. “You can’t reheat the same soup forever.” “When It’s Dark Out,” stands out for several reasons.

Sometimes it’s easier to say what I don’t grow than what I do. The list includes: Avocados, oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, asparagus, beets, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, corn, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, dragon fruit, passion fruit, pumpkins, squash, pigs, chickens and eggs. I am sure there are more but I can’t think of them now.

For one thing, “When It’s Dark Out” is an unusually musical and melodic hip-hop album. For instance, “Me, Myself & I” is built around Rexha’s strikingly pretty guest vocal, while “Drifting” (featuring Chris Brown) and “Nothing To Me” (with Keyshia Cole and E-40) are silky ballads with mostly sung vocals. G-Eazy also steps up his game lyrically, showing a personal and vulnerable side in a several songs that is rare in today’s hip-hop, where it’s common for artists to use their words to brag about their success, money, women and ability to party like a pro. “When It’s Dark Out” has some lyrics (“One of Them” or “Order More”) about living the big life of a hip-hop star, but the songs “Drifting” and “Sad Boy” find G-Eazy contemplating the downsides and insecurities of fame. On “Everything Will Be Okay,” he recalls real-life difficulties, including when his mother left his father, weathering times when his mother was unemployed, understanding his mother’s sexuality and discovering the body of his mother’s girlfriend, who had suffered a fatal overdose. G-Eazy is proud of what he’s created on “When It’s Dark Out,” to the point that the new songs will be the focus of his live show this summer. “I kind of put the album together in a similar way I would put a show together, like in terms of a set list, just energy wise, keeping the dynamic,” he said. “So I’ll play most of the new album and of course I’ll do some of the favorites off of the last one.” One of my friends always says, “food is community and we produce a lot of good food.” We are proud of what we are doing and its fun being recognized for our hard work.

that era. But Younger took the traditional path. Just after the primary, he left for Maui and stayed on vacation almost a month, figuring no one would heed politics until summer’s end. But that year was volatile, just like 2016. In the June vote, Californians had passed the landmark Proposition 13 property tax limits over Brown’s objection, so there was plenty to talk about. And Brown talked plenty. Overnight, he pivoted from the Jarvis-Gann Initiative’s leading opponent to its foremost enabler. He traveled up and down the state, campaigning not merely for himself but also discussing how the new property tax law could be codified and made to work smoothly without destroying public education, parks and other services the initiative’s opponents had worried about. Brown put up two series of television commercials that summer, too. He was seemingly everywhere, campaigning far harder than his current older incarnation ever has. All this buried Younger, who became a sure loser in the fall, and was finished politically. Brown understated later that “You get some results when you advertise prolifically and no one else is on the air.” No one has needed even to consider this kind of summer campaigning in recent years, when incumbents like Brown, Arnold Schwarzenegger and U.S.

Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer have not felt seriously threatened after the primary. Partly, that’s been because California became “safe” for Democrats and partly it’s because none of their opposition was either well-funded or determined enough to go on a summer offensive. Helping make summertime campaigning effective is the reality, documented in a broad body of psychological research going back to World War II, that the more often people hear positive messages about a person they have only recently begun to like, the more solid that feeling becomes. This could make a post-primary offensive from Sanchez extremely effective, especially because even though Harris has been in office six years and has vast poll leads, she’s somewhat lesser-known than many other public officials of similar status. It also means, of course, that Harris, could conduct a summer offensive of her own, especially since she had far more money on hand than Sanchez at the last reporting date. But a radical departure from traditional politics seems more up the Sanchez alley, since she’s by far the more outspoken of the two. That’s a quality she’ll need to take advantage of, because she starts the runoff as a distinct underdog, just as she did in the primary season. Email Thomas Elias at For more Elias columns, go to

Officials for decades have envisioned the milelong stretch south of San Marcos between Grand Avenue and Discovery Street as the downtown that the city has lacked, with a mix of housing, retail establishments, parkland and open space transforming the area. Most cities in North San Diego County have well established downtown districts, which were the

original town settlements. San Marcos, however, does not have a traditional downtown district. The city’s creekside plan calls for the creation of a new circulation road, Creekside Drive, that will run parallel to San Marcos Boulevard, turning the stretch of twin roads into the city’s center and will also serve to link that area to the city’s University District, MacDonald said.

The City Council in 2007 approved the plans, which call for a 214-acre shopping and housing district, with 73 acres set aside for a habitat preserve. Once built out — which is expected to take 20 years — the Creekside District will contain about 2,300 residential units, 1.2 million square feet of retail space and 590,000 square feet of office space.

he Haferkamp family is super cool. Or is it su-

per nuts? You decide, but the Carlsbad clan did something that nearly everyone addicted to baseball has pondered: What would it be like to visit all 30 Major League stadiums? The Haferkamps found out over a five-year trek that has resulted in a dynamite book, “Let’s Hit ‘Em All.” Parents Steve and Dayna Haferkamp were only half of this bunch hooked on baseball. Their

sons, Grant and Jack, were also along for the ride and according to the adults, were the instigators of this mission, which is dear to all Seamheads. The Haferkamps were attending a Padres game in 2008 when Grant and Jack were selected to assist in the pre-game activities. “That was so special and they were so excited,’’ Steve said. “The next day we were having breakfast and they said they were thinking about doing all the stadiums. It was totally their idea that we do it. We figured if we were going to do it, we had to do it as a whole family and while the kids were young.’’ Singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” never gets old. But 30 different venues over five summers with young ‘uns so small they still fit in their parents arms?

The book, “Let’s Hit ‘Em All,” is published through Mascot Books. The book was written by Dayna and Steve Haferkamp. Courtesy photo

Steve and Dayna just shrugged. “It didn’t take us long to consider doing it,’’ said Dayna, born and raised a dedicated Pittsburgh Pirates fan. “We got out the pen and paper and started TURN TO JAY PARIS ON 22

Sabers ‘reloading’ for new hockey season By Tony Cagala

ESCONDIDO — Centerman Ben Evans took two high sticks to the face, got a cut above his eye, busted a lip, shattered a tooth, and needed at least five stitches all before the tryout was through. Evans, 20, a hockey player from Denver, Colo., was trying out for the San Diego Sabers, Escondido’s hometown hockey team. Though not to add salt to his wounds, Evans most likely wasn’t going to make the team. “Ben’s a great kid and I

research indicates a “short delay at the ramp meter will not only save you time, but makes for safer ride as well. “For instance, it can take an hour to travel from Encinitas to downtown (San Diego) on Interstate 5 if traffic is moving at less than 25 miles per hour. With ramp meters regulating traffic, even at a speed of just 40 miles per per hour, the same destination can be reached 20 minutes faster.” Ramp meters were first used in the U.S. in the early 1960s and introduced to San Diego County in the mid-1980s, according to Caltrans.



would love to have him here, but he’s also played in this league on another team, so his rights are currently owned by another team,” said Mark Haupt, assistant coach and media relations manager for the Sabers. Having a contract with another team makes it all the more difficult for other organizations to try to obtain players. The Sabers are part of the Western States Hockey League (WHSL), an amateur athletic union sanctioned Tier II Junior A hockey team, which claims the Escondido Ice-Plex as their home arena. First entered into the league as the San Diego Surf from 2001 to 2008, the team changed their name to the San Diego Gulls in 2008, which lasted until last year when the Gulls of the American Hockey League, the minor league affiliate of the Anaheim Might Ducks returned to San Diego. The 2015-16 season was the team’s first time as the Sabers. Now, the Sabers are entering the 2016-17 season with another new start, too — the team’s owner and general manager Jim Cavataio brought in Haupt and head coach Joakim Falt. The organization wrapped up a three-day tryout in June, with more than 30 players hoping to make the team. “Out of that, there were some pretty good players that we’re interested in,” Haupt said. “I thought all in all, it was a very good showcase and there was some good talent out there.” The hope was to sign at least five or six players from the tryouts, with the rest of the roster being rounded out later on. This year, the Sabers

Outreach will also be done to encourage drivers to allow for more time during their commutes and to carpool with others. In general, it’s good for everybody to leave a few minutes earlier, especially during the peak of congestion.” Emerson said. “It just helps reduce traffic.” From 5:30 to 9:30 a.m., ramp meters will be activated on eastbound SR-78 in the following areas: • July 6: Jefferson Street and Plaza Drive in Oceanside

• July 12: Twin Oaks Valley Road, Barham Drive/Woodland Parkway and Nordahl Road in San Marcos • July 19: Rancho Santa Fe Road, Las Posas Road/Grand Avenue and San Marcos Boulevard in San Marcos From 3 to 7 p.m., ramp meters will be activated on westbound SR-78 in the following areas: • July 26: Mar Vista Drive, Civic Center Drive and Vista Village Drive in Vista • Aug. 2: W.

open the season with a three game series in Arizona against the Hawks starting Sept. 30. Their first weekend series at home is slated to begin Oct. 14 against the Las Vegas Storm. “This division has a highly-skilled talent level,” Haupt said. “The influx of European players coming over here has made the entire league really good.” Last season was a struggle for the Sabers, though, finishing with a 9-40 record, with three overtime losses over the course of their 52 game season. It’s one of the reasons why Cavataio, the team’s general manager and owner, brought Haupt and new Falt in. “The wins and losses are great and we always strive to win,” Haupt said. “But the development of the young man and moving them on to college to play hockey in college and go to school, or moving them on to the pro ranks, speaks volumes for your program.” But don’t call it a rebuilding season. “I would say in a Junior A level you’re always in a position where (you’re) not so much rebuilding but you’re reloading,” Haupt said. “I think San Diego has a good core here even though we blew it up a little bit.” Haupt added they’re not only looking for good hockey players but for good character kids. Liam Ritchie, who came down from British Columbia, Canada to try out said it was pretty interesting to see a good number of Canadians trying out for the Sabers. “I like to see all these Canadian boys come down here, it’s pretty fun,” Ritchie said. Towering over the other players, Ritchie, a defenseman by trade, stood 6-feet, 10-inches tall — not really normal for a hockey player — and that wasn’t in-

cluding his skates. “The weather’s nice up here,” he said though. But the height, he thinks, helps him out on the ice. “It’s like a quarterback situation, you see over people when you play,” he said. Following the tryouts, Ritchie said he liked it here in San Diego, especially the weather and gave the team a verbal commitment to play. On Wednesday, the Sabers announced they had signed Ritchie to this year’s roster. In a statement issued from Cavataio, he said the team is looking for great things from Ritchie this season. “His size and quick speed will help our team defensively,” Cavataio said. At 15, Mason Kohn is one of the younger members of the team already signed. It will be the Carmel Valley resident’s first year with the Sabers. The talent he’s seen already, even at the tryouts, has been pretty decent all the way through, he said. “Everybody’s pretty big, pretty strong. Definitely a lot of older guys for me, especially with me being a younger kid,” he said. As for seeing a 6-foot, 10-inch player on the ice: “It’s unusual for sure,” Kohn said referring to Ritchie. Now that they’re teammates, it’s a sight he’ll have to get used to. Back to Evans, playing hockey professionally has always been the dream, he said. But the aspiring hockey player/actor knows the odds of making it in the NHL. “One in every 10,000 people make it to the NHL. Unfortunately, when I was in high school, I didn’t have the drive that those professional athletes have,” he said. “Right now it’s just fun,” he added.

hears people say, “This is just how Moonlight (Theater in Vista) started. “But I don’t see that kind of thing in our future,” said Townsend. “I’m not sure we want that much growth because we do have so many things going on right now. We don’t really aspire to be Moonlight or aspire to be anything. I

think we’re great how we are. Obviously, we need money to continue what we’re doing.” The Patio Playhouse Theatre opened its 50th season with Green Day’s “American Idiot,” on June 24 at the Kit Carson Amphitheatre. Tickets and information are available online at

picious death. It was later determined to be a homicide, according to Murphy. As the cause of death was ultimately determined, Long became a person of interest in the homicide investigation, Murphy said. Escondido detectives received a warrant to search Long’s San Marcos home where, according to Murphy, several items were seized. Murphy wouldn’t elaborate on the items found at the home. On June 21, an officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle in which Long was riding in. A crime bulletin, which had been shared with law enforcement agencies, showed Long as a person of interest in the case. Long was then taken into custody and is now awaiting transfer back to San Diego to face the murder charge in connection with the death of Perez. Another person was driving the vehicle in which Long was arrested in,



mapping it out.’’ So the journey began, as the Haferkamps rode a collection of planes, trains and automobiles to reach their nirvana that revolved around the No. 30. “It was everything we thought it would be and more,’’ Dayna said. Which is evident in their book, which includes pictures of every venue that make you feel as if you’re riding shotgun with the Haferkamps. The second stop of their trek was Pittsburgh’s PNC Park. While the Haferkamps were introducing another generation to baseball’s pull, Dayna was felling the tug on her heart. “This was really a testament to my mom,’’ Dayna said of her late mother, Della Marie Cochran. “She was all about family and spending quality time together. We wanted that spirit to live on and build a legacy that we could pass on.’’ But the excursion became more than just about baseball. It was about interacting with others, learning about different cities, discovering what makes America — and Toronto — great and is it possible to eat too many

though investigators, at this time, don’t believe he was involved in the murder. “Escondido Police detectives traveled to Las Vegas to continue their investigation and serve additional search warrants,” Murphy said. The investigation, Murphy explained, is ongoing and details, including what evidence was seized, a motive, and caliber of weapon used haven’t been released. According to a timeline of events, the investigation into Perez’s death began on June 13. Four days later, Long was deemed a person

Details on Long’s criminal record were not given per the department’s policy not to share criminal history information about those that they charge with crimes, according to Lt. Edward Varso, Long is being charged with first-degree murder, which entails a 25 years-tolife sentence.

hot dogs? “We learned that what you find out when you are in these different places that you can just talk to people and everyone is connected through baseball,’’ Dayna said. “When you would engage in conversations it was just amazing.’’ While also underscoring what makes baseball so grand. There’s down time between batters, a causal rhythm that every game possess which allows strangers to become friends in the moments when the action on the diamond takes a break. Steve had a go-to line that never failed. “You guys from around here?’’ he asked as a tourist, knowing what came next. “They would give you the history of the stadium, tell you where the best microbeer stand was and everything else,’’ Steve said. “At baseball games, people are really open. At football games, people are in a rush, a hurry, not to miss a play. Not so at baseball games.’’ While absorbing the nuances of every contest — they saw a no-hitter in Cincinnati — it was before the first pitch that often had its biggest impact. The cheery Haferkamps made

sure their sons met the people running the games and not just those running on the field. They made nice with ushers, parking lot attendants, concession workers — you name it. “The most important thing we wanted to get across to the boys was to make sure they were respective and learned their pleases, thank yous and to look people in the eye when they met them,’’ Dayna said. “Those were life lessons.’’ While they had the time of their lives, in doing so, they’re hoping their trip inspires others. “So many people say, ‘Oh man, that is everyone’s dream,’’’ Steve said. “And it can be done. You don’t have to do it in five years; there’s no need to be rushed. Just enjoy yourself, plan it out and go for it.’’ The Haferkamps did just that and have the frequent flier miles to prove it. The book is a fun read and if you’re wanting to meet the Haferkamps, they’ll be at the All-Star FanFest which runs July 8 through July 12 at the San Diego Convention Center.
