‘Hell no’: Leaders stand against offshore drilling

Levin announces plan after San Onofre tour REGION — After touring the decommissioning San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), U.S. Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) announced he is introducing a bill that would prioritize the disposal of spent nuclear fuel currently being stored at the beachfront facility. Levin toured the facility along with fellow U.S. Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Laguna Beach) and retired U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Len Hering, who was appointed to Levin’s task force addressing “safety challenges” at SONGS earlier this year. During a press conference after the tour, Levin said he “appreciates” the work Southern California Edison has done to address the flaws that allowed for the August 2018 incident when a full canister of spent fuel became stuck as it was being lowered into storage, hanging 18 feet in the air for nearly an hour. In March, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a final enforcement decision to Edison, imposing a $116,000 civil penalty for two violations of federal requirements. Still, Levin “remains convinced” that the commission needs stronger oversight on SONGS. “I believe we do our

ENCINITAS — A group of delegates from across San Diego County gathered on Monday, April 15, at Moonlight State Beach to voice their opposition to the Trump administration’s proposal to expand offshore drilling operations along the California coastline. The bipartisan event, hosted by nonprofit marine conservation group Oceana, received overwhelming support from Supervisors Jim Desmond and Kristin Gaspar, as well as mayors and council members from Encinitas, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Oceanside and San Marcos. "San Diego County leaders have stepped up and made it crystal clear that offshore drilling is unacceptable and they will fight it tooth and nail," said Oceana representative Brady Bradshaw after the event. "Today made me proud to live in a place where the leaders we elected are so connected to the coastline." Encinitas Mayor Catherine Blakespear, who helped the city adopt an offshore drilling resolution on Jan. 24, 2018, said President Donald Trump's idea of expanding offshore drill-

Woman who falsely accused candidate has probation revoked By Aaron Burgin

A Superior Court judge has revoked the probation of a woman who falsely accused former State Assembly candidate Phil Graham of sexual misconduct just two months after she was sentenced. Nichole Burgan was sentenced in February to two days in coun-

ty jail and three years’ probation after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of filing a false report with the Sheriff's Department in connection to her allegations against Graham. Her sentence included a 90-day jail term that was stayed pending completion of her probation, $655 fine, 10 days

Sister honors sibling with fundraising effort $10K reward offered in mosque arson case By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — A sudden and tragic loss upended the life of the Chavez family last year. The family lost 11-yearold Wendy Chavez to an unexpected leukemia diagnosis in June 2018, but months later her legacy lives on, in part, to her younger sister, Tania. Tania Chavez, 10, is a fifth-grader at the Vista Academy of Visual and Performing Arts. And several weeks ago, she led the way in the school’s annual Pennies for Patients drive, which raises funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Tania used her wits, family network and some help from her two older sisters — Karen, 22, and Laura, 25 — to build a website. And when it came to tally the funds raised, Tania blew away the field with more than $800. “She was really kind,” she said of her sister. “We used to do videos on our phone or play outside.” “We had a goal of $3,000 and raised over $5,700,” Principal Benjie Walker added. “She (Tania) spoke in front of the whole school, and it was pretty powerful.” Wendy was a bright and funny girl who attended the Vista Innovation and Design Academy. But no one knew last June would be her last days as she suddenly became ill. Her mother, Reina Chavez, was worried so much she admitted Wendy to the emergency room. However, doctors figured the child was dehydrated, but Reina Chavez knew something else was affecting her daughter. They visited a hospital in Tijuana, where Wendy was diagnosed with leukemia. They were referred to

Rady’s Children Hospital, but again the family hit a roadblock with doctors believing the diagnosis. Finally, tests confirmed what the Mexican doctors already knew. The confirmation came with a tragic twist, Wendy was terminal and had little time left to live. On June 24, she slipped out of consciousness and hours later, the energetic, charismatic and bubbly girl was gone, just four days after her 11th birthday. Once news spread, the Chavez family was blanketed in support from friends, teachers, school administrators and others, Reina Chavez said through tears. “They said they were not able to do anything and you have to say goodbye to your daughter,” she said. “I don’t think she ever knew she had cancer,” Laura Chavez added. “She was

so strong.” So when the fundraiser came around, Tania knew it was an opportunity to honor her older sister, the one she used to play with, look up to and was her best friend. Marla Minsart, Tania’s teacher, said she was shocked to learn her student raised about 14% of the school’s total funds. After creating the website, Tania called all her family members, friends and other acquaintances to tell them about her website to honor her sister, and they responded in kind. As a result of her efforts, Tania’s class won first place in the school-wide drive. Minsart said she is proud of her pupil, but noted how Tania has blossomed and improved throughout the year, even though her sister’s death still weighs on her.

“You are your sister’s hero,” Minsart said of her student. “I just think through the year, she has really blossomed. It was amazing that she would find the opportunity and her moment to shine and for her sister to shine.” The gravity and levity of Wendy’s passing is not lost on her little sister. Tania said one of the big reasons she worked so hard to raise the money was to help other kids in her sister’s position. Hopefully, she said, some of the money will lead to earlier diagnoses and those children will avoid the fate of Wendy. Tania, though, speaks with a smile when talks about her sister and role model and the good times. “They need to diagnose what it is and I think the money will help different people in need,” Tania added.

ESCONDIDO — Authorities announced a $10,000 reward April 11 for information leading to the arrest of whoever intentionally set an occupied northern San Diego County mosque ablaze under cover of darkness last month. “Today we are asking for the public’s help in solving this horrible hate crime,” Escondido police Capt. Ed Varso said. “We cannot do this alone, and we believe that someone has information that will be valuable to our case.” Dar-ul-Arqam Mosque, also known as Islamic Center of Escondido, was torched about 3:15 a.m. March 24. Seven people who were inside the West Sixth Avenue house of worship escaped without injury and were able to extinguish the blaze with a fire extinguisher prior to the arrival of emergency crews. The fire was “quickly determined to be arson,” Varso said during a news conference co-led by Suzanne Turner, acting special agent in charge of the FBI’s San Diego field office; and Ernesto Diaz, assistant special agent in charge of the Los Angeles Field Division of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Further evidence of the malicious intent of the

crime was graffiti left on the building making reference to last month’s deadly terror attacks at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Dozens of state, federal and local investigators, including personnel with the county Sheriff’s Department and District Attorney's Office, have worked to identify the perpetrator or perpetrators but so far have identified no suspects, Varso told news crews during the briefing at Escondido police headquarters. While the case remains unsolved, police have sought to protect the mosque from any further harm or harassment, according to Varso. “As we have been investigating the crime, we’ve also worked diligently to ensure that members of the mosque feel comfortable and safe at their place of worship,” he said. “We are currently working with the leadership of the mosque to improve the facility’s security. In addition, our officers ... increased their presence at the mosque immediately following the fire and continue to provide extra patrols in the area.” Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call the FBI at (800) 2255324. Tipsters may remain anonymous. — City News Service

Positive moves for San Marcos Chamber Special to The Coast News

SAN MARCOS — From helping local businesses grow to hosting community events and a future move to a new location, the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce has become more progressive and relevant in the community. As for the move, the chamber, now located at 904 San Marcos Boulevard, will be relocating to the North City development at the end of May. “Our lease was up at the end of November, so we began to explore options including staying in our current location,” said Rick Rungaitis, San Marcos Chamber of Commerce’s CEO. “The space at Union Cowork began to make the most sense when we started adding up all the advantages to the chamber and our members.” Rungaitis added North City has been an active member in the chamber and the move lets the San Marcos Chamber be part of the newest development in San Marcos. “Union Cowork provides a wonderful opportunity to connect with young professionals,” he continued. “Not only can we provide resources to young members, but we can learn new ways to help members tap into new ways to market and grow their business.” “We will have access to their meeting rooms, spe-

cifically access to a 25- to 30-person capacity Education Center where we will be able to host seminars, workshops and meetings which will provide valuable resources for our members,” he said. “This is a new and Rungaitis vibrant area of San Marcos and we’re excited to be part of it.” Rungaitis has been with the San Marcos Chamber since January 2017 and has been instrumental in its recent growth. “The chamber has seen steady growth over the past couple of years. This is due to a strong staff, robust board of directors and active chamber members,” Rungaitis said. Always busy working on something, Rungaitis said there’s not a typical day in the chamber world. “We serve as problem-solvers for our members,” he said. “Anything that we can do to help them grow their business we will do.” Residents are encouraged to stop by the San Marcos Chamber to pick up a free copy of the 2019 Business Directory and Resource Guide that has listings of all its members, information about the city, the history of San Marcos and much more.

Vista mulls ADUs By Steve Puterski


Helping to kick off American Heart Association National Walking Day in Vista on April 3 were Ticker, Jennifer Sobotka, executive director of the AHA San Diego Division, Vista Mayor Judy Ritter, AHA volunteer and stroke survivor Tyler Howe, Aaron Byzak, chief external affairs officer for Tri-City Medical Center, and Carlsbad Councilwoman Cori Schumacher. Almost 200 people participated in the National Walking Day festivities. The event included a brisk walk around the Civic Center, reinforcing the goal to get more people active and moving more often. In addition, 41 people were trained in hands-only CPR and 37 health screenings were conducted by Mira Costa/Tri-City Medical Center nursing students. The American Heart Association reminded walkers that “staying active is one of the best ways to keep your body healthy. Being more active helps you feel better, look better and improves your overall quality of life.” Courtesy photo

North County report shows Inland-Coastal disparities By Steve Horn

SAN MARCOS — Income disparity is growing in North County, according to the San Diego North Economic Development Council and Carlsbad-based BW Research Partnership’s North County Indicators report. The report, an examination of the region’s economic health, was presented April 10 at the North County Economic Summit hosted by California State University San Marcos. With 1.2 million people, North County’s population would equate to the 48th biggest state in the country and 10th biggest city. The median household income of the region, according to the report, is $85,000. But the median income for Inland North County — defined as San Marcos to Borrego Springs — is just above $62,000. That’s compared to the southwest coastal portion of North County from Del Mar to Encinitas which has a median household income of nearly $122,000. “The growing disparity in income will continue to exacerbate the housing affordability challenges and will likely impact the available workforce as younger

and less affluent workers find it harder to live and work in the region,” reads the report. This economic disparity can be seen in K-12 education, as well, which sees over 56.1% of Inland North County students qualifying for free lunch. California’s Department of Education has a $32,630 threshold for free lunch qualification for a household of four and $27,014 for a household of three. Only 12.1% of students in the southwest coastal quadrant of North County receive free lunch. In higher education, 70% of the southwestern coastal portion of North County’s residents aged 25 to 64 have at least a bachelor’s degree, while less than 30% of those within Inland North County have achieved the equivalent. “So you have, really, these significant differences in terms of educational attainment within North County alone,” said Josh Williams, BW Research’s president and principal researcher, in presenting the report. “And we can really see that in some of the outcomes.” Meanwhile, the average price of a house in North

County, the report details, runs buyers a median cost of $770,616. Yet the price of a home in the southwest portion of Coastal North County has a median price of over $1.2 million. While the sticker price of homes alarms the report’s authors, they point to the percentage of annual income homeowners and renters pay for housing as more worrisome. “In several zip codes in North County over 60% of households are spending over 35% of their total household income on rent,” explains the report. “While overall housing affordability is important, the ability for current and potential workers to find housing is a particularly relevant subset of the larger affordability question.” The biggest employers, according to the report, are the health care industry, the biotechnology sector, the defense and aerospace industries and craft beer. Over 20,000 people work in health care and biotechnology alone, the report shows. In his presentation, Williams expressed optimism about the future of craft beer in the region, downplaying the possibility

of it as an economic “bubble.” “No longer is Budweiser the staple when you go to a friend’s house,” said Williams. “It’s local brews.” Funded by San Diego County Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant program, the SDNEDC wrote that it aims to “spark more informed conversations about the region’s future.”

VISTA — Accessory dwelling units are quickly becoming a way for cities to meet their housing stock. Recent legislation passed by the state, thanks to the city of Encinitas, has made it easier for residents to build ADUs, or granny flats. Cities are also parlaying the new law to add ADUs under their affordable housing requirements. In Vista, the City Council addressed ADUs and associated fees during its April 9 meeting. The council directed staff to return with a more detailed report on impact fees and square footage, to name a few. “The ADU cannot exceed the size of a primary residence,” Conley said. The units are allowed on lots with developed single-family homes and cannot be sold separately. Currently in Vista, ADUs can be up to 1,000 square feet, although the size depends on the size of the property and zoning designations, Conley said. Constructing an ADU will cost $18,464.42 in city fees, which includes about $14,000 in impact fees, and does not include building costs. Several residents spoke about the high fees, which are in addition to other state-mandated costs such as soil tests and storm water and grading plans. The state does not require development impact fees for ADUs. Resident Michael Upton said he and his wife are building an ADU, but just to get started it cost about $37,000 to acquire the plans plus impact fees. The council was most-

ly in favor of waiving impact fees for affordable units. But, they were split on whether to reduce those fees on market-rate units by 50%. Mayor Julie Ritter and Councilwoman Amanda Rigby did not favor the cut to market rate fees, saying those who move in will also be using city services such as roads, emergency services, parks and other amenities. “I’m not a fan of that,” Rigby said. “No matter who is living there, they are still impacting the city. I think the fees need to be paid up so it can go back to helping the community.” “I think for market-rate … I don’t think we should waive those,” Ritter added. The council, though, directed staff to research allowing units to be up to 1,200 square feet, depending on the size of the lot. According to city code, 60% of the lot must remain open, which means living spaces can only cover 40% of the land. Additionally, the council also went back and forth between allowing homes in the R-1-B zoning designation to include ADUs. Those lots are up to 6,000 square feet. Ritter and Rigby said they are too small and dense, and allowing an ADU may negatively impact those neighborhoods, which were not designed to add more residences. Councilman Joe Green, though, said he was in favor for the R-1-B units as it allows those residents the same opportunity as others. In addition, he also favored a 50% reduction in market-rate fees and no fees for affordable units.

Anti-vaxxers grow more aggressive amid challenges


Avoid tech support scams By Summer Stephan

As your District Attorney, I’m committed to increasing communication and accessibility between the DA’s Office and you, the community. One way I have been doing that is through this monthly column, where I provide consumer tips on public safety matters. Since our lives are ruled by our computers and all of the personal and financial data that flows in and out of it, we’re right to be concerned about computer safety and guarding against a virus or spyware. But, don’t trust those pop-up ads that entice you to doubt your security. One of the latest ways senior citizens are being scammed is through phony tech support pop-up ads that scare computer users into thinking their computer has a virus. Preying on security concerns, fraudsters trick victims into providing remote access to their computers, making them believe that the so-called “technical support” will plug gaps in security. The ad often looks like it is coming from a legitimate technology company such as Microsoft, since the ad uses their logo. Although anyone can fall prey to this trick, senior citizens tend to be the most vulnerable in believing their computer is affected, which leads them to provide credit card information to the

law & order summer stephan hacker or allow what they think is anti-virus software to be placed onto their computer, but is really spyware. This shakedown can go down a number of paths, but they each end with significant financial loss. For example: • The scammer strikes every so often making you think your computer has a new virus that you must pay to have removed each time. • The credit card or banking information you provided to stop the virus may have unauthorized use. • Your computer may get infected with spyware allowing access to personal and financial records. Here’s what you need to know when dealing with computer safety and tech support:

Getting rid of fossil fuels will help the economy This study concludes that using sustainable energy not only reduces pollution and extreme weather, but greatly benefits human health and “will pay for itself with those savings.” If we value health, fossil fuel emissions can be viewed as detrimental to us, our children, our grandchildren.

Her video was one factor inducing Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to promise the social medium will remove false anti-vaccine information from its service. Other anti-vaxxers are at least as vocal. The Voice for Choice activist group released a public statement attacking Pan for “invading the doctor-patient relationship.” Early this year, Pan, the Legislature’s only pediatrician, complained that some doctors are falsely writing medical exemptions from vaccination for their young patients in exchange for payments of about $300. Pan also wrote the U.S. surgeon general reminding him that compulsory vaccinations are a longstanding American tradition. “George Washington mandated smallpox inoculation of his army during the Revolutionary War to ensure our country’s freedom,” he said. “I call on you to protect our right as Americans to be free of preventable disease…” All this came against the background of a major outbreak of measles in counties in southern Washington hosting wealthy suburbs of Portland, Ore. More than 55 cases were recorded just west of Vancouver, Wash., an area where vaccination rates had lately fallen below 90 percent. When those rates drop below about 95 percent, vulnerable persons can be more easily infected by others who unknowingly carry the disease. But outbreaks of hepatitis in San Diego and mea-

sles among Disneyland patrons, New York residents and Portland-area suburbanites don’t deter the anti-vaccination campaigns. They don’t acknowledge it, but they’re putting their unfounded fears ahead of the possibility of deadly disease outbreaks. Pan’s 2015 bill ending the religious objection exemption to vaccination for new public schoolers – mostly kindergarten pupils – was supposed to stop the debate. It had the reverse effect, firing up opponents who now turn out in significant numbers for legislative hearings here and around the nation. It also expanded the “doctor’s recommendation” market that began with the 1996 Proposition 215 allowing medical marijuana use with such a note. The bottom-line fact in all this is that measles can kill, while vaccines never have. Not even when a few persons have had strong reactions to them. Here’s what has to happen: Lawmakers must stand up to the anti-vaccination crowd, a very small minority according to every poll. They must pass the Gloria-Gonzalez bill for starters. They also ought to create and pass a new law requiring more than a mere doctor’s note claiming potential ill effects to exempt a child from vaccinations. Perhaps a requirement for some sort of laboratory tests demonstrating a vaccine allergy would be appropriate along with a doctor’s note. Anything short of this leaves the door open for evasion of the vaccination requirements needed to once again make California free of diseases that formerly plagued the entire world, but are now under control except in areas with low vaccination rates.

We often hear that moving away from fossil fuels will hurt the economy. A recent study by Scripps Oceanography finds that phasing out fossil fuels could save 3.6 million lives per year. This contrasts significantly with this assumption, if we view human lives, health and productivity as part of economic growth.

he more credible challenges are raised against their claim that vaccines cause autism and other problems in children, the more aggressive becomes the anti-vaccination camp in California. During the very same week that Danish researchers released a study of 650,000 youngsters over 10 years that found absolutely “no association” between autism and vaccines for diseases from polio and measles to whooping cough and hepatitis, the anti-vaccine camp again raised claims there is such a link. That contention – often repeated by America’s most visible anti-vaxxer, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. – is based on a thoroughly debunked British study from early in this century. Nowhere are the anti-vaccination folks more active than in California. In the last two months they’ve gone after Democratic state Sen. Richard Pan of Sacramento, co-author of the state’s newest law demanding vaccination as a condition of public school registration, and attacked a legislative effort to prevent a repeat of a deadly hepatitis A outbreak in San Diego. The bill by Democratic Assembly members Todd Gloria and Lorena Gonzalez, both from San Diego, doesn’t mention vaccinations, but would demand that local authorities take “any action the health officer deems necessary to control the spread of (a) communicable disease.” Anti-vaxxers responded that this could allow county health departments to order adults vaccinated, not just schoolchildren. “This is a pretty scary bill if they don’t make any amendments to it,” anti-vaccination activist Denise Marie said in a Facebook video that got thousands of views.

CUSD trustee to run for 76th seat CARLSBAD — The first challenger for the race for the 76th State Assembly District has emerged. Ray Pearson, who currently serves on the Carlsbad Unified board of trustees, said April 12 he will challenge Tasha Boerner Horvath for the district, which covers Pearson Encinitas, Carlsbad, Vista, Oceanside and Camp Pendleton. Pearson, a Republican, said his platform is centered on community and public service, which he has been doing since his teenage years growing up in Huntington Park.



community a disservice when we underestimate the risk caused by the fuel at this site, which poses unusual challenges due to its geography,” Levin said. Once Levin returns to Washington, D.C., he plans to introduce a bill that would, if enacted, require the Department of Energy to consider three criteria for selecting sites nationwide to remove fuel from and transport to either an interim or permanent storage facility. The first criteria would look at the operating status of the plant, with priority given to plants that are decommissioned or decommissioning, like SONGS. The second criteria would consider population density around the facilities. Levin noted that there are 8.3 million people living within a 50-mile radius of the SONGS facility. The final criteria would look at the potential earthquake risk at these facilities. Levin noted there are two active faults and “a network of” inactive faults near SONGS. According to Levin, the bill would prioritize sites that are at highest risk under the three criteria. “I don’t think there is any other site in the United States that has the seismic risk, the population density and is a decommissioned or decommissioning site,” he said about SONGS. “I’m fairly certainly that we’re the only site quite like it.” Levin noted the Diablo Canyon Power Plant and other sites in California have similar seismic risks, and sites across the country have high population density around them that could be affected in the event of a crisis. “We have both,” he said about SONGS. Both Levin and Rouda also noted sea level rise poses a risk to the beachfront SONGS facility as well. According to Levin, he and Rouda were unable to discuss the potential risks of scratching or gouging of canisters as they are lowered into storage at SONGS with facility officials. He

He said his experience on Carlsbad Unified’s board of trustees is also another reason for his decision to run. Pearson, who is in his second term on the board, said one priority is to find positive pathways for students to succeed, attend college and afford homes in North County. In addition, he is also prioritizing seniors and finding ways to make those living on fixed incomes more comfortable with the state’s challenging and rising costs of living. Pearson is a marketing executive for Jewelry Television and his prior work includes positions with Interlink Electronics, Disney, The Weather Channel and in government relations with Westinghouse Broadcasting and Cable.

His public service includes serving on the Carlsbad Senior Commission and Mayor’s Education Advisory Committee; sits on the board of directors of the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation (and past chairman), North Coastal Prevention Coalition and Carlsbad Fire Department Foundation; and is an advisor to the Mitchell Thorp Foundation and Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce Education Committee. Pearson is married to Karen Pearson and the couple has three children and three grandchildren. They moved to Carlsbad in 2008.

said they plan to continue that discussion at a later date. Rouda announced his support for Levin’s upcoming bill at the press conference. “With that legislation, we will begin the process of doing what we should have done decades ago,” Rouda said. According to Rouda, the federal government has “failed” the nation by not creating a plan to remove spent fuel from sites and store it safely somewhere else. “I think one of the most concerning things I heard today was under best case scenario, when we look at the timeline to address removing the nuclear waste from this facility and other facilities across the U.S., we are talking 10 years,” he said. Without Levin’s bill, according to the two congressmen, it could take even longer to remove and transport fuel from sites. Levin and Rouda are hopeful that the bill will gain bipartisan support in Congress. “This is an accident waiting to happen 100 times over across our country,” Rouda said. “This is not a partisan issue. These sites are located in districts that are represented by Republicans and Democrats.” In early April, Levin led a letter with signatures from several other members of Congress, including Rouda, asking the House Appropriations Committee for $25 million in federal funding to support developing a consolidated interim storage program at the Department of Energy. The funding would also assist with site preparation and regional transportation of spent fuel. Though most of the signatures were from Democrats, Levin noted that the $25 million requested was consistent with what Energy Secretary Rick Perry has requested, adding that Perry has supported the concept of a consolidated interim storage facility being placed in his home state of Texas. Levin also wants to have another tour of SONGS

with Perry as well as Gov. Gavin Newsom and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein. According to Edison public information officer John Dobken, 102 of 123 canisters of spent fuel will be eligible for transportation to an interim storage facility by the end of 2020. “What the industry needs is certainty,” Dobken said. Yucca Mountain in Nevada was selected to become the nation’s permanent repository for nuclear waste in 1987. The government spent $15 billion studying the location, and the Department of Energy began pursuing a license in 2008. The Obama Administration abandoned the project a few years later due to opposition from Nevada residents and politicians. The Trump administration and other Congress leaders favor reviving the Yucca Mountain plan, with the administration proposing $120 million to revive the project this fiscal year.

Note: Pearson and this reporter both serve on the board of directors of the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation.

Casualty of feminism?

small talk jean gillette


here was a moment, during my second pregnancy, that I will always remember with enormous clarity. It was just after I had gotten my amniocentesis results and had the joyous news that I was carrying a boy. I was substitute teaching in a junior high classroom, and the day’s activity was to view the film. “All Quiet on the Western Front.” Not far into the movie, I was struck hard with the sudden knowledge that this baby could someday be required to serve his country, and perhaps die for it. I stood in the dark in the back of the classroom and quietly cried for some time. As the daughter of a career Air Force officer, it was quite a jolt to set aside my esprit de corps and cope with the much stronger urge to protect my child. I still struggle with it, as mothers have for all time. One day, I joined a friend, a fellow mom with two daughters, as we left the school grounds. This woman has struggled to reconcile the needs of sustaining the family unit, as a wife and mother, with the needs of ridding the world of sexist expectations. We are also both at-home moms, by choice, and often discuss our very fuzzy place in the feminist/anti-feminist lineup. She took her one daughter’s hand, turned

to me and said, laughing tightly, “Well, did you hear that they’ve opened to doors for women to go into combat? My first reaction,” she said, “was to shout, ‘Yes!’” Her immediate second reaction was like a fist to her gut. “This was the one problem I thought I didn’t have when I had girls,” she said. I laughed, too, but wryly. I had an identical reaction to the news. It is the reaction, I suspect, of a whole generation of women with young daughters who have cheered and supported the growing freedom to choose our futures and now, more piercingly than ever, see the cost of that freedom. I thought very seriously about joining the military when I was young. Having grown up within that structure, it was not such a foreign environment to me. In those salad days, full of the blind courage of youth, I might well have chosen to go into combat. I don’t believe, however, that I ever discussed this with my mother. I’m sure I would have remembered her response. The idea of, now, both my children going off to war forces me to question the changes we have earned. Only the revulsion at having my or my daughter’s life choices narrowed and truncated, has sustained my faith that we are moving in the right direction. “I guess,” I told my friend, “we will just have to stop having wars.” Jean Gillette is a freelance writer still puzzled by war.

In loving memory of

Alex Nava

April 5, 2019

It is with immeasurable sadness that we share with our community the passing of our enigmatic and charismatic son, Alex Nava. He lost his eightmonth long battle with opioid addiction on Friday, April 5, 2019. He had called the Village Park area his home for all of his 24 years. Alex’s smile is what we will remember. He was a light in the world. He was authentic and genuine, with a greeting full of affection,

and his smile and goofiness will remain with us. It is our hope that Alex’s light will help someone find their way through the disease of addiction and stay alive. Some of us will forever remember Alex as he stood outside of his childhood home wearing his favorite boots and Magic Girl costume. And then there were the days he wore nothing at all, except those boots. Alex leaves behind his mother Lisa, father Antonio, brother Andrew, and sisters Angela Morgan and Ariana. His Nava and Morgan families extend across the U.S. and Mexico. In lieu of flowers, the family is graciously accepting donations to contribute to continued expenses, and there will be a one-time donation in Alex’s name to a program to be determined.

Documentary on sex trafficking premieres at Palomar College SAN MARCOS — Palomar College Television held its first screening of the documentary “Shattered Dreams: Sex Trafficking in America” on Thursday, April 4, at its Howard Brubeck Theatre. Tackling the subject of sex trafficking in San Diego County, the premiere also featured a post-film conversation with San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan, as well as two survivors of sex trafficking featured in the film. In her post-film remarks, Stephan — who has made it a priority to prosecute all elements of sex trafficking — praised the “Shattered Dreams” team for putting a human face on what she described as a societal anomie. “I really wanted to be here because this is a great piece of work,” Stephan said. “And the reason it is so great is because it brings (forward) the artistic talents of Palomar College

not have made this film possible, but for that it is real. It is very, very real.” “Shattered Dreams” tells the story of sex trafficking through the stories of three of its victims. Jaimee Johnson and Tyesa Harvey, survivors featured in the documentary, spoke during the post-film conversation moderated by NBC News San Diego journalist J.W. August. Harvey emphasized a family’s background can push those to enter what those within it call “the life.” “If you grow up in a family and your mom and dad and uncle and aunties and grandmothers and grandfathers are all doctors, you’ll be a doctor,” said Harvey. “If you grow up in a house and you’re watching your father rape your mom, what are you going to do? You’re going to think it’s OK to rape a female, to take away a female.” Johnson, on the other hand, said that she dis-

ern California's Looming Water Crisis,” “Joshua Tree: Threatened Wonderland” and “Larger Than Life: The Story of the Northern Elephant Seal.” Wisneski said his team found the project a difficult but rewarding pursuit. “Finding the survivors who are willing to tell their stories is the biggest challenge,” he said. “We felt an incredible burden to do justice to their story, which is something we’ve never dealt with before and that was a real challenge to us.” Wisneski added that the “Shattered Dreams” team worked on an expedited timeline to work the film through production. “It took us one year to finish this film,” explained Wisneski. “Our previous feature length documentaries took on average three years to complete, so this was a very ambitious production schedule and it took substantial effort to finish it in one year. I have an amazingly talented and

agreed with the usual framing around the dynamic between victims and perpetrators. “I think that there is a huge gap in understanding that there are so many different dynamics at-work, there are so many different intersectionalities,” said Johnson. “I have to be completely honest, I still have my reservations about being portrayed as a victim. ‘Oh poor me,’ victim, ‘I was forced to do so many things.” Instead Johnson advocated that a middle ground point of view should prevail. “That’s where the lack of understanding comes in,” said Johnson. “There are a lot of parallel dynamics between what forces someone to become an exploiter or buyer and what drives someone to become the exploited.” The film was directed by Palomar Television’s Bill Wisneski, also director of the recent documentaries “Shadow of Drought: South-

ESCONDIDO — The city of Escondido Public Art Commission, a volunteer group which meets quarterly to make decisions around public art, may combine operations with the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, according to an April 9 announcement by Assistant City Manager Jay Petrek. The proposed merger is part of a continued arts initiative by Mayor Paul McNamara and several council members. “It kind of falls into sync with, if you will, with the focus that the Center for the Arts has with regards to the visual arts program that they have, the museum program, as well as the art that they have on campus,” Petrek said. Located near Escondido City Hall, the Center for the Arts — which opened for business 25 years ago — already receives about half of its annual revenues from fees paid by the city of Escondido. Escondido’s five-year management agreement with the Center for the Arts will expire in October. Petrek said this is a perfect opportunity to strike a new deal, helping grow the arts in Escondido by combining efforts and resources between city staff and board members at Center for the Arts. “So, (both parties are) open to that idea, but we haven’t put anything in writing yet,” said Petrek. “As far as who would do what and what those responsibilities would be” has yet to be determined.

CARLSBAD — Get ready for a treat at The Museum of Making Museum in Carlsbad when the trio Harpeth Rising performs at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 20. Harpeth Rising is a group of three women who recently came back from Cambodia and Singapore as part of the U.S. State Department’s American Music Abroad Program. Maria Di Meglio is one of those three classically trained musicians — the other two are Jordana Greenberg and Michelle Younger. The ladies all play original music arranged as a string quartet with Appalachia and Medieval Europe influences in their music. The group’s music is “a mixture of folk, newgrass, rock and classical, which produces a unique sound, according to Di Meglio. The women, who met in college, each have classical performance degrees from such places as Indiana University, Oberlin, Eastman School of Music. “I became involved with Harpeth Rising through Jordana Greenberg, violinist and lead singer,” Di Meglio said. “While I was wrapping up my master’s degree at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University mutual friends connected us. We hit it off and started playing together, and the rest is history,” As for its unique name Di Meglio said, “Harpeth Rising, comes from a river that runs through Nashville. We lived near the Harpeth River in Nashville during our formative years as a band. We draw a lot of

inspiration from nature, and it felt appropriate and auspicious to include this beautiful river as part of our identity.” Di Meglio plays the cello, sings harmonies, plays the bass drum with her left foot, and sits on a Cajon (box drum) which she plays with her right foot. “We all play foot percussion and sing in addition to our principal instruments, and those three elements form the core part of our sound,” she said. “I am a first-generation American and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. “I have strong ties to the countries where my mother and father are from, which are Montenegro and Italy, respectively. Having that background has made me very appre-

ciative of other cultures and has been a catalyst for seeking out the many unique cultures and musical styles that make up our great American identity.” Speaking of other countries, she said the trio was thrilled and honored to be part of the American Music Abroad Program, which took them to Cambodia and Singapore as mentioned. “This was our first government tour, and it lasted about two-and-a-half weeks,” she said. “We were fortunate enough to travel throughout both countries. At each performance and workshop, we collaborated with local artists and students. Personally, this was the first time I had been to Asia, and everything was new for me. The biggest

takeaway was how similar we are. No matter what far reach of the world you travel to — say the top of an ancient Cambodian temple, or the most futuristic-modern skyscraper in Singapore — we all have the same collective human commonality that drives us in our lives. It may manifest differently and be expressed in unfamiliar ways, but it comes from the same place. The warmth with which we were embraced by people was incredibly touching.” For tickets and more information, email mus e u m @ m u s e u m o f m a, call (760) 438-5996, or visit www. museumofmakingmusic. org.

‘Engibeering’ beer science program begins at CSUSM By Steve Horn

SAN MARCOS — The craft beer capital of America, San Diego, now has a new scholarly epicenter at California State University San Marcos. Dubbed “Engibeering” and owning a trademark as such, the program has a cross-disciplinary focus rooted in science, but also having social science, historical and business elements. Classes began on March 19 and it takes 12 to 16 credit hours to complete the certificate. With over 155 craft breweries in San Diego County and dozens of them in North County, advocates

of the program say Cal State San Marcos will serve as a strategic home to study the burgeoning industry. “San Diego has a thriving craft brewing industry, and it needs more qualified workers,” Jackie Trischman, faculty co-director and professor of chemistry at Cal State San Marcos, said in a press release. “This program prepares students for every aspect of a brewing operation, from buying the materials and brewing to bottling and selling.” Classes will also feature instructors who work for the industry itself.

he first thought that came to mind when I looked at Slater’s 50/50 menu in San Marcos was, “well this is over-the-top.” And given that they use those words specifically twice on their website homepage with the lines “all sorts of over-the-top options” and “over-the-top food favorites” then that’s what this dining experience was going to be like so I was just going to go with it. With a column called Lick the Plate I better be able to go big once in a while right? That’s what this place is all about so I planned a day of light eating in preparation. In case you were unaware, the 50/50 comes from their original differentiator of their burgers having an even mix of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef. That ensures a moist, flavorful burger regardless of the temperature you order it. Much like buying the fattiest blend of beef for

your burgers at home, 70/30 has always been my preference. My point is, lean blends of burgers are not my thing so Slater’s is doing it right with their signature hook. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m more of a simple burger kind of guy, I want to taste that moist, fatty blend with minimal distractions but since this is an over-the-top kind of place, I was ready to indulge. Before I get into the food I should note that their San Marcos location has the most beer taps I’ve seen. They claim over 100 and that all their bartenders and servers are Cicerone certified, which bodes well for all you crafty beer drinkers out there. In case you are unfamiliar with the term Cicerone, (sis-uh-rohn) it “designates

hospitality professionals with proven experience in selecting, acquiring, and serving today’s wide range of beers. To claim the title of Cicerone, one must earn the title of Certified Cicerone or hold higher certification as Advanced Cicerone or Master Cicerone. Those with a basic level of expertise gain recognition by earning the first-level title Certified Beer Server.” This level of beer knowledge was evident with our bartender/server who brought out several tasters based on my request for something that would accompany the forthcoming feast. Slater’s Vampire Dip was recommended to start our meal and it was a fine pick.

The combination of roasted garlic, artichoke hearts and creamy melted cheese served in a sourdough bread bowl with crispy pita and veggies for dipping was delish. I could envision eating a lot of this stuff watching a sporting event on a lazy Sunday. They also offer up Crispy Brussels Sprouts (see, there are healthy options), Ahi Tuna Poke Nachos, 50/50 Sloppy Joe Sliders, Kona Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Bacon Mac and Cheese Balls, and of course the pork centric Pork-APalooza, their signature bacon flight with Bacon Chicharron, Bacon Kettle Corn, Sweet & Sour Agave Pork Wings, Crispy Pork Belly with Jalapeno-Bacon Jam and Slater’s Giardiniere. Yep, that would fit into the OTT category. The salads at Slater’s are hearty and definitely an option for those of you not up for the OTT experience. We added the Southern Fried Chicken Cobb into our mix for a slice of healthy and it was solid. Other salad options include the ultimate BLT, Tomato Basil, Strawberry + Burrata and Ahi Poke. Burgers are the stars at Slater’s and all 1/3 Burgers are served with your choice of: French Fries + Slater’s Bacon Ketchup; Sweet Potato Fries + Pumpkin Sauce; or Slater’s Salad; and any burger can be served on organic mixed greens or in a lettuce wrap. I’d suggest it in a bun but just wanted to put that out there. And of course you can “Slaterize” your fries for that OTT experience with beer cheese or bacon chili cheese. Impossible burgers are available to replace the 50/50 blend, but that just seems counter intuitive to this whole experience. I counted 13 burger options so there is something for everyone. The signature 50/50 includes that magic beef and bacon blend with pepper jack cheese, avocado, sunny-side up egg and chipotle mayo on a brioche bun. Shakes seem to be the way to go for dessert and they go big with those as well. The Ultimate S’more Shake, King Shake, Candy Shop Shake and the adult Mint Chocolate Guinness Shake will complete your going big experience at Slater’s in fine fashion. It’s a fine place to watch sports with TVs everywhere and a nice outdoor patio perfect for happy hour that runs Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and Friday through Sunday 9 p.m. to close. My advice is to bring an appetite and let loose a bit as we all need to indulge on occasion right? Find Slater’s at 110 Knoll Road, San Marcos. Call (760) 759-2900 or visit

The “Family Tradition” of the largest association of California wine farmers, bottling craft wines, is increasingly attractive to a growing wine drinking public that will pay up for the experience. The Family Winemakers collected its top members and over 70 wineries, from all over the state, offered their top brands to a full house of tasters. This is one of the few big wine shows where the owners and winemakers are eye to eye with the many who have come for the newest and the best of breed.

Sports Moore has Masters experience to make others green with envy It’s just sports something talk


hen settling in to watch the Masters forgive Haley Moore if she offers four words: been there, done that. Moore, a senior star at Arizona after being a standout at San Pasqual High School, has felt that iconic Masters course under her golf cleats. She tied for seventh in the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur this month, with the last round on April 6 being played at the Augusta National course. “It was pretty awesome,” said Moore, an Es-

jay paris condido native. “It was like a dream come true.” That Augusta extended an offer to the world’s top female amateurs is an odd vision as well. The club which has hosted the Masters since 1934 didn’t accept its first female member until 2012. And before announcing the ANWA at last

year’s Masters didn’t seem a likely spot for the women to match shots. “I remember when I got my invitation and I was out of the country,” Moore said. “I had my mom send me a picture of it.” It was a big deal then and even more so with Moore shooting even par 72 over the 18 holes where the best men players teed off a week later. Moore felt honored to be among the final-round field of 30, but there was more than golf and Georgia on her mind. The 2014 CIF San Diego section player of

the year saw large groups of girls lining the fairways and hugging the greens, looking at Moore as if peering into the future. “There were all these young girls standing around, giving all the players high-fives and asking for autographs,” Moore said. “They were saying, ‘In five, 10 years I want to be playing here, too, making moments and making history.’ They were cheering us on but really everyone was really nice.” Twice as nice was the women getting to play two rounds, with the Friday

practice session being memorable as well. “It’s just something that I never thought would happen and that’s to drive down Magnolia Lane and play at Augusta,” Moore said. With every step around the hallowed grounds Moore thought of past winners and those indelible performances delivered by Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth and others. “And really just for anyone winning at Augusta and to think what it must feel like for them to walk up to the green on No. 18 with everyone cheering,” Moore said. “That has to be a special moment.” Moore knows the sensation even if her biggest winning putt didn’t come with a green jacket. It was Moore’s 5-footer for a birdie in a playoff last year which clinched the NCAA Women’s Golf title for the Wildcats. Soon Moore will be putting for bucks.

that I never thought would happen and that’s to drive down Magnolia Lane and play at Augusta.”

REGION — What started as an evenly matched tilt between the county’s best seniors turned into a runaway victory for the North team, which routed the South 124-92 in the latest installment of the San Diego County Senior AllStar Game on April 12. Fueled by strong performances by La Jolla Country Day senior guard Ryan Langborg, Torrey Pines star guards Bryce and Michael Pope and Rancho Buena Vista center Drew Cisse, the North team used a 37-15 third quarter to blow open a game that the South led 49-48 at halftime. Langborg, who led the Torreys to their first boys basketball state title in March, was named the North most valuable player after scoring a game-high 23 points. Bryce Pope added 21 points, Cisse scored 18 points and Rancho Buena Vista senior guard Patrick McLachlan scored 16 points. The North team also got standout defensive performances from Vista guard Jordan Hilstock and Bishop’s forward Christian Rose. Hilstock, who recently committed to Cal State University Dominguez Hills, made Duke-bound Boogie Ellis work hard for scoring opportunities. Ellis’ Mission Bay teammate Jay Norton was named the South MVP after tying Ellis for team-honors with 15 points. One of the biggest sur-

prises was the play of Otay Ranch senior guard Rayqwan King, who scored 13 points and more than held his own against many of the big names in the county. Both North and South teams came out flat to start the game, missing wide open shots and struggling to get into an offensive rhythm during the first quarter, which the South led 26-24. The lone bright spot in the first quarter was Cisse, who hit two three-point shots and scored a gamehigh eight points. But after halftime, the North players played stifling defense and Langborg, Pope, Hilstock and McLachlan each hit two threes, and the game quickly became lopsided. Ellis won the event’s slam dunk competition after jumping over Norton for a tomahawk slam, all while Norton was recording it with his smart phone. Carlsbad senior guard Chase Murray won the event’s three-point contest, defeating Tri-City Christian senior wing Chase Webb in the finals. coastnewsgroup

Clifford becomes newest member of Vista Fire Department By Steve Puterski

VISTA — The newest addition may not have spots, but he does offer comfort and provide excitement. Clifford is a chocolate Labrador retriever, who is now on duty with the Vista Fire Department. He was donated by the Thor’s Hope Foundation as a facility dog to help the firefighters cope with stress and improve mental health around the department’s six fire houses. “Clifford is just one tool in that toolbox,” Chief Jeff Hahn said. “It has both broad appeal to our firefighters and to our community members when we bring him out. Even in its infancy, this program is taking off and doing good things.” Vista Fire Inspector Investigator James Gillespie said Clifford had been in service about month before he was unveiled publicly during a press conference on April 11. Hahn said the idea for

the program came last year when he met Christina Macone-Greene, vice president of the board of directors of Thor’s Hope Foundation (Macone-Greene is also a freelance writer for The Coast News). The foundation launched its Firehouse Project, which will reach continue to reach out departments across North County, and other areas, to discuss the need or want for a facility dog. Susan White founded the foundation in 2013 as a way to provide low-income mobility-impaired individuals with a trained service dog. White, who suffers from cerebral palsy, said service dogs have been a part of her life for more than 10 years. To date, the foundation has placed five dogs with individuals in need, she added. Hahn and Macone-Greene discussed the benefits of a facility

dog and Macone-Greene’s husband, David Greene of Performance K9, trained Clifford. The dog was origi-

nally going to be trained as a service dog, but after the conversation with Hahn, Clifford’s path changed, Ma-

cone-Greene said. “We talked about the occupational stresses firefighters face every day,” Macone-Greene said of the meeting with Hahn last year. On April 11, David Greene handed off Clifford to Deputy Chief Ned Vander Pol, who will be the dog’s handler and caregiver. “It’s been fun to see the interaction with Clifford and the firefighters,” he said. “The toxic stress that develops can have long-term negative impacts. All of this interaction and communication can have a positive impact on the firefighters. There is evidence out there … that just even being around animals has a very positive impact.” Vista firefighters, like many of their peers in San Diego, are also paramedics, said Joshua Corrdao. About 80% of their calls are for non-fire emergencies such as car accidents. He said they act as a

bridge between the field and emergency room to provide triage and other care on route to the hospital, thus saving time for waiting nurses and surgeons. Those scenes, though, take a toll on firefighters, which is why Clifford was brought on board. Firefighters witness more trauma than the average person and Clifford will be used as an additional approach to help Vista firefighters relax and unwind from the stresses of the job, Macone-Greene said. “A facility dog is expertly trained in obedience and specialty cues and is used in work settings under the direction of a professional partner or handler,” she added. “The handler is trained in specific techniques, which enable the dog to maintain a calm and polite manner in all situations and to be adaptable to interactions with a variety of people in different situations.”

Breweries hit with string of break-ins Vista man charged with fatally shooting wife By Aaron Burgin

REGION — A rash of break-ins and reports of burglaries at breweries, tasting rooms and wineries across the region has the San Diego libations community on edge. Surveillance footage from at least several of the incidents, which began in late March, appear to show the same person breaking glass doors at the breweries and attempting to steal money from the registers. Originally believed to be isolated to about five locations across the county, now as many as 18 breweries from as far north as Temecula, Murrieta and throughout Vista, Oceanside, Rancho Bernardo, San Marcos and as far south as Scripps Ranch and Sorrento Valley have reported burglaries and vandalism. “They obviously had scoped out these locations, they knew exactly where the cash drawer was,” said Eve Sieminski, co-owner of Iron Fist Brewery in Vista and Barrio Logan. The Vista location was one of the first to be hit in late March. Sieminski said that there was no cash in the

drawer, so they only had to deal with the property damage of a shattered glass door. “It’s definitely got everyone talking about it,” she said of the incidents. Police in three jurisdictions — Oceanside, San Diego Police Department and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, which contracts with San Marcos, Vista and the unincorporated areas — are investigating these incidents, but have yet declared that they are part of a series or committed by the same person. “It is still too early to determine if this is a series,” said Billy Hernandez, an officer and spokesman with the San Diego Police Department. “The cases are all spread out through a few divisions and detectives are currently working them.” San Diego County is home to one of the most active brewing and winemaking regions in the United States. There are more than 130 breweries countywide, which in 2017 had an economic impact of $1.1 billion in output and $802 million in revenue, according to the 2018 Economic Impact of

Craft Breweries in San Diego County Report. At least 115 wineries actively operate in the county that generate a $50 million economic impact, according to a similar report on the impact of the winemaking industry on San Diego’s economy. Kris Anacleto, this year's San Diego Brewers Guild vice president, is the CEO and co-owner of Booze Brothers of Vista, one of the locations that was targeted. Anacleto called the incidents "unfortunate." "Thankfully, our brewery community looks out for each other and has really stepped up to let our fellow neighbors know what's going on,” Anacleto said. “Hopefully this serves as a reminder that we all need to take safety precautions at our establishments and keep safety and security a priority." Sieminski said that surveillance footage from the Iron Fist location, Black Plague Brewing in Oceanside and Longship Brewery in Sorrento Valley appear to show the same person in a hooded sweatshirt breaking into the location and grabbing the cash box and leaving.

VISTA — A murder charge was filed April 17 against a Vista man who allegedly shot and killed his wife last weekend. Andrew Thomas Smith, 57, was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of killing 59-year-old Jean Moore Smith. Her husband faces 50 years to life in prison if convicted of murder and an

allegation of using a firearm causing death. Deputies were dispatched just before 6 p.m. Saturday in response to a report of a shooting at the couple's home at 475 1/2 Rancho Vista Road, where they found the victim suffering from severe injuries and detained her husband, according to sheriff’s Lt. Michael Blevins.

Cypress Court of Escondido resident shares his Pearl Harbor experience Cypress Court Recognized for Outstanding Resident ESCONDIDO — Tom Foreman doesn’t consider himself a hero. But the 97-year-old World War II veteran’s stories say otherwise. He is just one of Cypress Court senior living community’s many residents with an extraordinary story. A San Diego resident since high school, Foreman has plenty to share about his time both here and in Pearl Harbor. The Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, considered a turning point in the war efforts in the Pacific, took place between Nov. 12 and Nov. 15, 1942. The Japanese launched air attacks on U.S. ships in an attempt to bring

reinforcements to Guadalcanal and retake the Henderson Airfield. Foreman was on the front lines of the battle. Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Foreman was a child of the Depression. “My older brother joined the Navy because he couldn’t find a job,” he said. The Foreman family moved to San Diego to be closer to his brother who was stationed here. “As I recall, San Diego had a population of 180,000 in 1937,” he said. Foreman graduated from Sweetwater High, and like his brother joined the Navy right after high school. At his home port at Pearl Harbor he was a gun director on top of the bridge. Foreman remembers vividly the night the Battle of Guadalcanal began. “Luckily we had gone out to sea and the destroyer that tied up where we had been got blown up,” he recalled.

“We were the lead destroyer because that was when radar had just come out,” he said. Foreman was on midwatch that night. “I had the radar in front of me … it was showing ships everywhere.” He initially thought the radar wasn’t functioning properly. “I thought this can’t be right,” he said. “I counted 22 ships. We had eight destroyers and two light cruisers

and three heavy cruisers.” “We saw the destroyer coming down our port side,” he continued. “We got hit. After several hits we lost power. The official count, I saw it later, we took 52 hits.” While helping a fellow sailor who had been badly injured, Foreman was hit with shrapnel in the leg. In the chaos of the gunfire and loss of power, Foreman was told to abandon ship. “I just

jumped overboard,” he said. “I had a life jacket on. I tried to swim away. Finally, I got out about 100 yards out.” In the ocean on a moonless night, Foreman saw a beacon of hope. “It was real dark. I saw some yellow out of the corner of my eye. I saw a small donut shaped raft…. I paddled around and I picked up three other fellas. ... Two were badly injured. We paddled around all night. We got on about 1:30 in the morning and got picked up late afternoon.” Throughout the battle, Foreman never contemplated dying. “I just felt that I was going to make it,” he said. “I don’t know why … But I was young and didn’t know any better.” Though many lives were lost in that battle, and many saved thanks to brave acts like his own, Foreman says he’s just an average person. “I just did what I had to do to survive,” he said. “I just

tried to do my job that’s all. In any war like that, that’s about all you can do.” Foreman is one of two Cypress Court residents who will participate in a May Honor Flight. This is thanks to Honor Flight San Diego, a nonprofit team of volunteers dedicated to escorting San Diego County Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials dedicated to their service and sacrifice. Cypress Court of Escondido is located at 1255 North Broadway in Escondido.

For the past several months, Bradshaw and others have attended city council meetings across the county to encourage local leaders to publicly oppose a Jan. 4 proposal by former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to develop the National Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Leasing Program (National OCS Program). The federal program

seeks to significantly expand oil and gas exploration and development by approving 47 lease sales — the largest number of lease sales in U.S. history — including seven new leases along the California coastline. Additional leases would allow drilling access to nearly the entire U.S. outer continental shelf, making “more than 98 percent of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources in federal offshore areas available to consider for future exploration and development,” according to a department release. Since Zinke's announcement, Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano), who serves as a member of the House Natural Resources Committee, has cosponsored two bills in Congress — West Coast Ocean Protection Act (HR 310) and California Clean Coast Act (HR 279) — that would effectively ban offshore drilling on the West Coast and in California, respectively. Bradshaw said that many state and federal leaders who were not invited to the press conference remain adamant in their opposition.

"Congressman Mike Levin, for example, is one of the leading members of Congress taking this fight to Washington, D.C. and he has not let up since coming into office," Bradshaw said. At the municipal level, several North County cities adopted resolutions opposing offshore drilling, including inland cities Escondido and Vista, and more than 90 cities have passed similar resolutions statewide. In February, the San Marcos City Council voted 3-2 to indefinitely table its resolution after several council members expressed concerns that adopting it could lead to a “slippery slope” of future requests to pass judgements on partisan and divisive issues. Despite voting to strike the proposal, San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones attended Monday’s press conference to express her opposition to offshore drilling expansion. “The bipartisan opposition to offshore drilling is overwhelming,” Jones said. “Today, we are standing together to tell the Department of the Interior that our communities oppose further gas and oil drilling off

our California coast.” Desmond, a former mayor of San Marcos, said that increasing oil and gas production along the coastline could disrupt military operations and jeopardize the county’s economy that relies on more than 143,000 active-duty soldiers training, living and working in the area. “San Diego County is a military and veteran county,” Desmond said. “We want to make sure our military has the ability to train and to preserve the options they have out at sea without the effects of drilling platforms.” Desmond also encouraged residents to say “no” to offshore drilling expansion. “Let me rephrase that,” Desmond said. “Hell no.” The Board of Supervisors sent a letter on March 9, 2018, urging President Donald Trump to “reject any proposal that would allow an expansion of offshore oil drilling in the coastal waters off of the State of California.” National City and Coronado are the only coastal cities in San Diego County that haven’t passed an offshore drilling resolution.

Award and Cox Business Exemplary Award. In 2018, nearly 900 people attended the event, enjoying food stations and entertainment while honoring IT leaders who bring forward-thinking and innovative approaches and programs to their organizations. “The Top Tech Exec Awards event has become the premier networking and awards recognition program for our region’s IT industry,” said Duane Cameron, Vice President of Cox Business in San Diego. “IT leaders may work behind-the-scenes, but they are critical to their business or organization. This

event is our way of recognizing these unsung heroes.” Tickets to the first-class awards reception include live entertainment, heavy hors oeuvres, craft beer and beverages, interactive games and premier networking with some of San Diego County’s best and brightest in the Information Technology world.

ry to different media outlets and a series of restraining orders filed against Burgan in the past that accused her of filing false reports raised doubts about the veracity of her claims. The Sheriff’s Department investigated and disproved the claims after reviewing video surveillance inside and outside of the bar and interviewing several witnesses. Graham vociferously denied the allegations, but Democratic activists quickly launched attack ads against Graham based on the allegations. An unknown party issued an illegal robocall alluding to the allegations but concealed the identity of the source of the robocall, which violates campaign finance laws. The Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating the robocalls. Von Kalinowski's original sentence was lighter than what prosecutors requested — 90 days in county jail — because Burgan did not have a criminal record. Friday's evidentiary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Friday in Orfield's courtroom, Dept. 1, in the North County courthouse in Vista.


Orfield lift the stay and that Burgan be required to serve the 90 days. “At the hearing, the judge will determine whether to reinstate probation on the same terms, change those terms and/or impose the full sentence,” Deputy District Attorney Katherine Grabar said Monday. Burgan was not taken into custody following Monday's hearing. Originally, Judge Sim Von Kalinowski ordered Burgan to serve her jail time on Feb. 23 and March 9, but Burgan, according to Grabar, rescheduled the February date for March 29. It is not clear if Burgan has served either of her two custody dates. Burgan told the media that Graham, the Republican front runner in the 2018 race, forcibly kissed her during the early morning hours of May 14, 2018, after a night of drinking at the 1st Street Bar in Encinitas. She later filed a police report, which prompted a San Diego Sheriff's Department investigation of her claims. But variations in her sto-

Firefighting operations controversy still ablaze By Carey Blakely

JULIAN — The fight over whether local volunteers or the county should manage Julian’s firefighting operations has, like any wildfire, spread in unforeseen directions. Starting on April 8, volunteer firefighters have holed themselves up in the fire station on Highway 79, refusing to allow county officials to enter the building. Their lawyer, controversial San Diego mayoral candidate Cory Briggs, has alleged Brown Act — or open-meeting law — violations against the previous board of the Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District that voted for dissolution in 2018. Now that Superior Court Judge Randa Trapp has ruled that Brown Act violations did occur, Briggs seeks to render the original decision to dissolve, and all subsequent ones related to it, null and void. That includes asking to invalidate the results of a March 19 special election when Julian residents voted in favor of having the county assume control of their firefighting and emergency medical services. Attorneys for the county have argued in court filings that the judgment should be reversed because it was obtained by fraud against the court. The next hearing related to the case is scheduled

for April 26. The volunteers refuse to leave the station. The county, however, refuses to dispatch any calls to them. That means that during the protest and while waiting for court action, Cal Fire personnel at neighboring stations are charged with handling emergencies. There have been reports, or some would say accusations, of fake distress calls made to Cal Fire. Tension, confusion and a desire for a swift resolution to the standoff are on people’s minds as spring brings with it the fear of fires.

Leslie Crouch, who is in favor of keeping Julian’s fire and emergency services under local control, said she gets very passionate and upset about the situation. Crouch said she and other concerned citizens previously talked to volunteer department personnel in the state who voted to dissolve their units. “They all warned us, ‘Don’t do it. Because once the county takes over, you’ll have no say.’ That’s just the way government is,” Crouch shared. While she made it clear that she harbors no hostility toward Cal Fire, noting,

“Their job is fighting wildfires and they’re very good at it,” Crouch thinks the local volunteers offer a superior service because they will never leave the station uncovered and they don’t get lost on the backcountry roads when responding to calls. Others in favor of local control have cited similar critiques, but the accusations have gone uncorroborated. Julian resident Alan Marvin served on the fire board from 2011 to 2016. When the district was forced to tap its financial reserves to purchase a fire engine and experienced

difficulty in securing a loan to build the new fire station, Marvin began to have serious doubts that the volunteer organization could remain solvent. So when the county made what Marvin found to be a convincing case for Julian to join the county’s fire authority, he voted for it. It was a tie vote, which resulted in no action being taken. At that time, Julian was the last volunteer department remaining in San Diego County’s backcountry. “It was obvious to me that the department was going to have financial problems in the future. Plus, I believed that the county could provide better training, better equipment and more support,” Marvin said. Marvin also once served as a Julian volunteer firefighter. When asked what kind of vetting and training he underwent, he chuckled and said, “Well, let’s just say that I was 64 when I signed up, and they asked me very few questions.” He never took a physical exam and said his training was “the bare-basic minimum.” The controversy has pitted townspeople against each other. When supporters of the volunteer firefighters sought to appeal the dissolution by calling a special election, some residents felt strong-armed into

signing their petition. A massage therapist, who asked to remain anonymous because she did not want to “instigate hate” against herself, said she was very uncomfortable when immediately prior to a massage treatment, a new client asked her to endorse the petition. “I told her that I’d like to read more about the issue before signing my name. She said it was just to get the issue to a vote and that I could make my choice then. It was clear she was on a mission and adamant about the cause. It was like sign now and think later,” the massage therapist recalled. Not wanting to incite an argument, she signed the petition but felt frustrated about it. The client never returned for a second treatment. Supporters needed 605 signatures and received 626. Ultimately, 54% of voters opted for county services. Michael Hart, editor of The Julian News, asked in a recent article how the community could be so divided and answered: “passion, on both sides.” But as Marvin pointed out, while for some residents the passions run deep, others don’t have time or interest. In an emergency, “Most people want to just pick up the phone, dial 9-11 and trust that they’ll get help,” Marvin said.

Emissions tampering alleged

Stolen school bell returned nearly 100 years later By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — Once upon a time, school children were shuffled to school by the ringing of a loud brass bell. At the Carlsbad School in 1922, teachers rang such a bell until one day it went missing. For nearly 100 years, very few in the city, or North County, knew what happened to the bell or the scofflaws who made off with it.It was lost to history. But on March 21, Florence Oliver, 79, of San Marcos and formerly Carlsbad, returned the bell to Carlsbad Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Ben Churchill. Oliver said she wanted to wait three more

years to return the bell, but due to her health, she felt now was the right time. “I would’ve loved to have that bell three more years,” Oliver said. “I fall down a lot. I’m just afraid one of these times I wouldn’t make it back to my house. I wanted that bell to be where it’s supposed to be. That bell is at home, finally.” Even after 96 years of hiding in plain sight, the bell remains in tip-top condition, she and Churchill said. No rust or cracks are visible, just a missing cap at the top of the handle. Oliver said the family never polished it, but it has withstood the test of time.

Oliver said her mother’s cousins, Robert and James Carpenter, swiped the bell from the Pine Avenue campus just before her mother and father married. As a joke, the cousins placed the bell under the mattress of Grace Edith Curtis (Carpenter) and her husband, Charles Henry Curtis. The mattress was loaded with springs, so as the two lay on the bed, the bell rang, giving all in earshot a laugh at the consummation of the marriage. “The boys went over and stole the bell from the school,” Oliver said laughing. “They put the bell under the bed and nobody knew it until they went to bed. Of course, everybody had a good time laughing about it because the bell is very, very loud.” When Curtis died, the bell passed to Oliver’s brother, Robert James Curtis, then it passed to Oliver’s other brother, Charles Henry Curtis. In 1976, after her brother passed away, Oliver inherited the bell. The school eventually replaced the bell, although Sarah Dana, senior librarian at the Carlsbad Library, said there was no record of a missing bell in 1922. There is little documentation of the bell’s history, she

added. Still, Curtis recalled another humorous tale of the bell’s power. Born in 1940, she began attending the school, but every time a teacher rang the new bell, Curtis bolted home because she thought it was the stolen bell calling her home. A teacher would then fetch

her, nearly every day, after she ran home. “We were a little confused at first because we weren’t sure what she was describing,” Churchill said. “She came in and told us some of the backstory. It was a really cool story and has this item that had got to be at least 100 years old.” When Oliver came into the CUSD’s office, it came as quite the surprise to Churchill and the staff. No one knew of the bell or its colorful past among the Curtis and Oliver families. It appears no reports, from law enforcement, the Carlsbad Journal or Oceanside Blade newspapers, were ever filed. But Oliver said it was time for the bell to return home. Churchill said the meeting was a lighthearted affair and even rang the bell, which still lives up to its reputation as loud. He said he is open to ideas for the bell, such as displaying it at each school, but most likely the bell will be housed in a glass case with a placard at the district office. The library, Carlsbad Historical Society and Carlsbad Police Department have no records of the bell’s origins or any law enforcement reports.

SAN MARCOS — A San Diego federal grand jury returned an indictment on three San Marcos companies April 11, alleging that the businesses tampered with emission control devices on their heavy-duty diesel truck fleets. Among the companies charged were portable toilet rental company Diamond Environmental Services LP, Diamond Maintenance Services, LLC, and Diamond Solid Waste, along with Diamond’s owner Arie Eric De Jong III, 52, Diamond's Chief Operating Officer Warren Van Dam, 52, and technician Jorge Leyva Rodriguez, 51. De Jong and Rodriguez are also charged with evidence tampering. The companies and its leaders are accused of disabling systems on Diamond’s trucks that warn if their emissions filters become too dirty, according to prosecutors. These electronic control modules — or ECMs — are required by the EPA to be in all heavy-duty diesel trucks since model year 2008. In addition to warning the driver that an emission issue needs to be resolved, prosecutors say the devices can “limit the top speed of the truck to as low as five miles per hour, providing an incentive for the truck’s operator to repair the truck.” Instead, the indictment alleges that Diamond had the ECMs removed from their trucks and shipped out of the state to be reprogrammed, allowing the companies to avoid the costs of removing soot and other particulate matter from the trucks’ filters. Further, Diamond is accused of having employees punch holes in some of the trucks’ dirty filters to allow air to flow through without filtration, and prepare false smog test results to ensure trucks that were not operating properly could pass muster. San Diego FBI Acting Special Agent in Charge Suzanne Turner said, “The alleged activity impacts every citizen and visitor to San Diego by contributing to declining air quality and increasing public exposure to airborne pollutants.” De Jong and Van Dam previously pleaded guilty to illegally dumping the companies’ portable toilet waste into municipal sewer systems, rather than certain designated locations. De Jong was sentenced to five months in federal prison last year, while Van Dam received five years probation. A third Diamond employee also was convicted of perjury and sentenced to five years probation. — City News Service

Neighbors work to protect wildlife By Staff

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Creek Conservancy has joined forces with neighbors of the Mountain Meadow Preserve in Hidden Meadows to help monitor and protect the newly preserved wildlife habitat. Neighbors have signed on as Conservancy Land Stewards to help monitor the Preserve, report suspicious activity, and help protect this important area west of Daley Ranch. Other neighbors have joined the Conservancy’s monthly Shrub Club events to actively restore the Preserve and other natural lands in the Escondido Creek watershed. The Preserve is owned by San Diego County Parks and Recreation and the Conservancy, and the Conservancy manages the Preserve. For those interested in active restoration projects, Shrub Club has been a great way for hardy volunteers to

get outside, explore local preserves, and give back to nature. Volunteers can join in on any of the Conservancy’s monthly projects on various Preserves around the watershed to remove invasive species, take down old structures, and enhance native wildlife habitat. While the location of this hands-on physical work varies by month, the potential for restoration projects on Mountain Meadow Preserve means the Conservancy will be organizing quite a few Conservancy events there in the future. By becoming a trained Land Steward or Shrub Club participant, the Conservancy’s volunteers are permitted special access to land as they help with monitoring and restoration. Those interested in volunteering should contact the Conservancy’s Volunteer and Marketing Manager, Nathan Serrato at

or (760) 703-3393. “We are deeply passionate about the land, as well as the plants and animals that inhabit our neighborhood. The training was outstanding, the Conservancy team is very energetic and they gave us the tools we need to help them maintain and protect this beautiful piece of property,” said Amy VanLiew. VanLiew and her husband are neighbors of the Preserve and have just completed the Conservancy’s Land Steward training. Acquired with the support of hundreds of donors as part of the Conservancy’s Save 1000 Acres campaign, the Mountain Meadow Preserve was purchased in September of 2018 with help from the US Navy and the county. It includes a more-than-9-mile area of preserved wild lands across the upper Escondido Creek watershed, generally from Highway 15 to Bear Valley.

helm. Founded in 2012, the Coombers managed to get involved with a custom crush and winemaking facility in Buellton (where the wine movie “Sideways” was made), created one of the fastest selling value wines around by converting their pet bulldog into a skateboard-rider and wine star for their “Skater Girl” wines and now they are ready to open Coomber Craft Wines Oceanside with a grand piano as the focal point. Follow this unique wine story at Vineyard Drive is one of the most picturesque wine country drives you will ever manage with almost endless S shaped curves through the west side of Highway 46 in Paso Robles. Finally, the Tasting Room of Opolo Vineyards, offers a welcome and some of the best Mountain Zinfandels you will ever experience. Opolo was founded by Rick Quinn and Dave Nichols, who were next door neighbors in the Southern California community of Camarillo. In 1998 they found they had a big dream in common: make the best wines with a European style based on Rick’s Yugoslavian heritage. They now manage over 270 acres split between the East and West side of Highway 101. Mountain Zinfandel is the go-to wine for Opolo. You will also enjoy their Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Meritage Red and Alberino. Visit at Finally, a word or two about Enriquez Estate Wines in Sonoma at Forestville, in the Russian River Valley.

One of those teachers: Rip Current Brewing founder and CEO Paul Sangster, who also served as the 2018 president of the San Diego Brewers Guild. Other instructors include Kyle Adams, general manager at Prohibition Brewing Company; James Petti, head brewer and co-owner of Wavelength Brewing Company; and Mike Stevenson, co-owner and head brewer at Culver Beer Company. The program will also offer students a chance to beef up their resumes in the form of an internship at a local brewery. “You’ll be learning from and networking with local brewery owners and experts associated with the beer industry, and will see behind-the-scenes of breweries of all sizes,” reads the program’s website. “As part of this program, you will complete an internship at a local brewery to gain real experience to help start or advance your career in this exciting and growing industry.” Those not seeking to matriculate through the entire certificate program can still enroll in one or all three of the entry-level courses offered. They include Sensory

structed Pinot Noir, Tempranillo and Muscat Canelli. If you love your wine cool and relaxing, then try the Sauvignon Blanc. It will set the mood for you. At 23 years old, the president and proprietor of Enriquez Estate Wines is Cecilia Enriquez, who is as passionate a wine executive as I’ve ever seen, operating the winery for her parents.

Engibeering’s commencement comes just two years after the dawn of another beer-centric program at the school, the Brewchive, or an archival collection focused exclusively on the document-based history of beer. That collection of materials focuses, in particular, on the modern era of beer industry development in San Diego County from 1987 through the present day. According to the university, both the Engibeering program and the Brewchive go hand-in-hand. “An archive of San Diego brewing industry practice supports research by business majors (marketing and business planning), science majors (recipe development and industry technology), history students (archival research experience and exhibits), as well as scholars and the public,” the university notes. The first days of Engibeering and the early days of the Brewchive come just as the city of San Diego’s East Village neighborhood in the downtown-area has announced that it may soon open a 12,000-square-foot Museum of Beer.
