Keystone project underway $16 million industrial park breaks ground By Christina Macone-Greene

projects are approved to contest them, so the failure of the signature drive means the Brookfield project can move forward, city officials said. “The window has passed for that particular legislative act,” City Clerk Phil Scollick said.

VISTA — Keystone Innovation Industrial Park, a new development, is making headway in Vista. Badiee Development Inc. recently broke ground on a project with an estimated $16 million completion cost. Executives anticipate that project values will swell to $20 million after the suites are leased at 1398 Keystone Way in Vista. Ben Badiee, CEO of Badiee Development, has worked on and developed properties in San Diego County for 30 years. According to Badiee, the Keystone property is a 10-acre parcel — the largest undeveloped property in the city of Vista. Civil engineers for the project were from Excel Engineering. Design plans by Smith Consulting Architects include two buildings at The Keystone Innovation Industrial Park. Building one is 47,000 square feet with four suites, and building two is 30,790 square feet with three suites. All suites range in size. TFW Construction will build Keystone Innovation Industrial Park. Badiee said San Diego is famous for growing small and mid-size companies, which is why the developer designed multi-tenant inno-

Supervisors back Trump ‘sanctuary city’ suit By Aaron Burgin

REGION — The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 to throw its support behind a lawsuit filed by the Trump administration that challenges the state’s so-called sanctuary laws, despite a throng of protesters urging the board to reject it. With Supervisor Ron Roberts absent, the supervisors emerged from

closed session April 17 and announced their decision, which was to direct the County Counsel to file an amicus brief in support of the lawsuit at the earliest point possible, possibly when the lawsuit is appealed. Supervisor Dianne Jacob said that she expects the lawsuit to prevail, and they would file when the state appeals the decision.

Board Chairwoman Kristin Gaspar and Supervisor Bill Horn joined her in voting in support of the lawsuit, while Dist. 1 Supervisor Greg Cox voted against it. “The board’s vote is a largely symbolic move that will create fear and divisiveness in our region, waste taxpayer funds and create distrust of law enforcement and local government,” Cox told report-

ers.

Jacob and Gaspar had differing views. “We’re talking about people who are crossing the border illegally, coming into this county and committing a crime and them being let loose probably to commit another crime,” said Jacob, whose district covers much of East San County. She had been the most vocal supporter of

the lawsuit. “That creates a public-safety issue and creates a problem in our neighborhoods.” She worried about terrorists crossing the border illegally, she said. “This is a different day than it was 20, 30, 40 years ago,” Jacob said. “That’s why it was important for us to stand up, as controverTURN TO SUPERVISORS ON 7

Referendum to halt San Marcos housing development fails By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — A petition drive failed to gather enough signatures to force City Council to overturn its approval of a 220home development. The group Friends of Discovery needed to collect 4,017 registered voters’ signatures to force a referendum on the project by

Brookfield Residential Properties, which would re-zone about 23 acres near the southwest corner of Twin Oaks Valley Road and Village Drive — just south of Cal State San Marcos — from commercial to residential to pave the way for the new homes. Friends of Discovery had more than 66 volunteers circulating pe-

titions. A group spokeswoman said the group isn’t opposed to growth, they just want it to be well planned. They submitted 4,880 signatures, but the Registrar of Voters invalidated 1,006 of them, leaving the group with 3,874 valid signatures, short of the number needed to force a referendum. Groups only have 30 days after

San Marcos welcomes new top cop Dave Brown has been with Sheriff’s Department nearly 30 years By Patty McCormac

SAN MARCOS — There’s a new sheriff in town. Meet Capt. Dave Brown, who recently took over command of the San Marcos sheriff’s substation. He plans to stay in place between two and five years and retire in five years one way or another. “I am going to sleep in, work on growing a beard and travel,” he said. In the meantime, he said he will work to keep his portion of the county safe and livable. “We have the second lowest crime rate of the 18 cities in the county (with a freeway),” he said. “I’m proud of that.” And Brown said Cal State San Marcos has been named one of the safest universities in the state. “That is determined by crime rate in the city where the university is located,” he said. Poway comes in slightly higher as the county’s safest city. His career path with the sheriff’s office began in 1991 when he worked at Vista’s juvenile hall and then at the county jail. Next he worked patrol in Vista and then all the way up to the command of a couple of substations, now including San Marcos proper with a population of nearly 100,000. The rest of his

area of geographic responsibility is far flung, including Deer Springs, the Lawrence Welk area and Valley Center with four casinos in the area. He thinks his job these days is rather low key including overseeing budgets, personnel, discipline and serving as a department head with the city. However, over the years, he has been in just about every level and job in the

department. He’s also done his time in organized crime. “I can’t talk about it,” he said. He did a three-year tour in homicide when he worked many high-profile cases. “Chelsea King and Amber Dubois was my case,” he said. As most county residents will remember in 2009 and 2010, two young girls were raped and killed and their remains were found later in shallow graves. John Albert Gardner, who was 30 at the time, was arrested in the deaths of both girls. “He will be in for life,” he said. Brown said he lost some sleep over those cases, especially when Amber’s body was discovered only two miles from his daughter’s school and she happened to be 14 at the time. Three years was long enough to be in homicide, he said. “You know what they say about a wheel barrow,” he said. “You can only fill it up so much.” During his nearly 30 year-career, there have been changes in policing that have made it easier, he said. “I would say that computers in patrol cars and

facial recognition, which is hand-held and getting better all the time,” he cited as improvements. He said he remembers learning for the first time that not everyone likes cops and the word came from a 4-year-old boy riding a Big Wheel. He and another officer were trying to get into a locked outer gate of an apartment building to answer a loud, glass-breaking, yelling, screaming domestic violence call. They asked the small boy who was inside if he would open the gate for them. “He asked, ‘Are you cops?’” Brown said. When they said they were, the little boy said, “’expletive’ cops,’ and road away on his Big Wheel.” There were good days, bad days and days that still bring a chuckle, he said, like a finding a couple on a lovers’ lane “engaged in an act.” Brown recalls asking for both their IDs and learning they had the same last name and the same address. These 70-year-old lovers had been married for nearly 50 years. “It’s been a good ride and I have no regrets,” he said. But when he is retired, there are things he will not miss. “When I am retired I am not going to carry my phone everywhere even throughout the house,” he said. “I take it to the bathroom with me. I take into the shower and watch it while I shampoo my hair. You can’t miss calls. There are a lot of lives I am responsible for.”

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens readies for Earth Day Festival By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Alta Vista Botanical Gardens has a mission for its 2018 Earth Day Festival landing on April 21 — to make it the best year ever for children and their families. Nancy B. Jones, director of children’s programs at Alta Vista Botanical Gardens, said the program has grown more popular since its inception more than a decade ago. After joining the gardens in 2009, Jones began championing the festival. She moved it to the Children’s Garden area where the tables, activities and games were stationed. It started building from there because everyone both young and old enjoyed the interaction of it all, she said. “Now we have vendors and music,” Jones said. “It really developed from there. We have some very loyal participants who come to the fes-

tival.” Vendors’ wares range from crafts to earth-wise products for consumers. Plants and pottery will also be available for purchase. The festival is a free family event making it a huge draw for families. Activities for the day include recycled art, painting, crafts, games and more. Barbecue will be provided by Amigos de Vista Lions. Musical entertainment includes guitarist Vic Moraga and harpist Karen Hinkson-Buck. Nathan Rosenberg and Sara Christopher will also perform. What Jones wants most of all is for children to learn how to love their planet. “We live here, we need to take care of it,” Jones said. “We have to take care of it, or else it’s not going to be here anymore.” Teaching this concept at an early age is vital so that children can be empowered, she explained. While guests peruse the 14-acre gardens, they also can learn about horticulture, mainly indigenous plant species. Jones anticipates anywhere from 500 to 800 attendees for the festival. “We have a new discovery trail, so the kids can walk around that,” Jones said. “There are so many great things for kids to do, and families can just come and have a good time outdoors and spend time in nature.” Jones also shared that since 2003, its board has been working on developing the gardens. “We are all volunteers, and we put lots of time into making it available,” she said. “Members have donated sculptures, donated garden areas, and we have a new program called Adopt a Garden.” The Earth Day Festival is a time for the community to enjoy the Alta Vista Botanical Gardens and experience the beauty of nature. For more information about The Earth Day Festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 21, visit AltaVistaBotanicalGardens.org. Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is located at 1270 Vale Terrace Drive in Vista.

Vista Community Clinic raises bar on tobacco control programs By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Health groups across the county and nation continue to raise awareness about the dangers of smoking. In North County, the Vista Community Clinic is putting this health issue at the forefront with its Tobacco Control Program. Fatima Ashaq, media specialist and prevention specialist at the clinic, said the Tobacco Control Program is part of its Health Promotion Center. The Health Promotion Center focuses on supportive and preventative resources for the community. The Tobacco Control Program has different focuses such as having a smoke-free environment through policy changes and minimizing tobacco product access to the younger population. On its victory roster, the clinic’s Tobacco Control Program secured smoke-free beaches in Oceanside in 2007, and in Carlsbad one year later. Smoke-free parks were enacted in Oceanside in 2007, San Marcos and Carlsbad in 2008 and Escondido and Vista in 2009. When it comes to smoke-free amusement and entertainment venues, Vista Community Clinic’s program successfully pulled out tobacco product usage at LEGOLAND California in Carlsbad, Moonlight Amphitheatre and Wave Waterpark in Vista and The San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido. Ashaq said the program has youth coalition clubs on three different high school campuses in North County at Oceanside High School, El Camino High School and Rancho Buena Vista High School.

Each club has around 25 students taking part in the program. “What we do within our youth coalition is we empower students to have the tools and resources to not get into tobacco or drugs,” she said. “We partner our youth coalitions with our alcohol and other drug prevention programs as well.” Ashaq said these programs help students with public speaking and teach them how to lead a

successful and drug-free life. “Within our Tobacco Control Program, we also have our SmokeFree Homes Project,” Ashaq said. “Our main goal for our SmokeFree Homes Project is to reduce secondhand smoke exposure inside the home. Our program so far had about an 85 percent success rate in taking smoking outside of the home.” Ashaq said the program isn’t about smoking cessation. Instead,

it guides people to smoke outside. However, something surprising happened with the Smoke-Free Homes Project. “We found that within our program, we’ve had a very high success rate of individuals that quit smoking,” she said. The clinic’s Tobacco Control Program is also tackling the rise in e-cigarette usage. It was instrumental in the ban on electric smoking devices where smoking

is not allowed. This came into effect in Vista and Carlsbad in 2013. Poway, Oceanside, San Marcos and North County Transit District enforced this decision in 2014. Ashaq said her department is working hard on the e-cigarettes front because advertisements attract the younger population. “This is something that we are definitely putting our efforts into so that we can prevent and protect our youth from that type of media influence or advertising exposure,” she said. Ashaq said her fellow staff members have been leading presentations for parents and school administrators so that they can have the knowledge about “vapes” and e-cigarettes. “A lot of our community members including school administrators and schools, in general, have reached out to us for these educational presentations,” she said. The Tobacco Control Program was recently awarded a state-funded grant. Ashaq said they are looking forward to using those funds so that they can make a more significant impact in North County. Looking ahead, smoking cessation classes will be offered this summer. On a personal level, Ashaq is passionate about her work. “It’s been so fulfilling,” she said. “Every day, I’m able to see how lives can be changed through our program and the work that we do by giving individuals resources and opportunities to better their lives.” To learn more about Vista Community Clinic’s Tobacco Control program, visit www.vistacommunityclinic.org.

The 49th as a birthday gift By David Dozier

What does one of the richest men in the United States buy his granddaughter for her 30th birthday? If you're Irwin Jacobs, co-founder of Qualcomm, you buy granddaughter Sara Jacobs a congressional district. She'll turn 30 in January. With a net worth of $1.3 billion, according to Forbes, the senior Jacobs is doing just that. If you're a woman living in North County San Diego or southern Orange County, you likely received a mailer proclaiming Sara Jacobs as the "fresh face we need in Congress." The "fresh face" claim walks back Jacobs's prior apology to Democratic frontrunner Col. Doug Applegate, a retired Marine. In response to a question at a campaign event, Jacobs described Applegate as a "crusty old Marine." She later apologized. Nevertheless, the super-Pac supporting Jacobs remains preoccupied with complexion over substance in campaign mailers. The mailers are part of an extravagant media blitz paid for by the super-PAC, Women Vote! As reported April 9 in the San Diego Union-Tribune, Sara Jacobs's grandfather donated $250,000 to this super-PAC. In late 2017, Sara Jacobs moved to Encinitas (and the 49th Congressional District) for the express purpose of running for Congress. Her only visible qualification for the job is her grandfather's checkbook. On March 27, the San Diego Union-Tribune dissected Sara Jacobs's resume. College professors can tell you that their students often pad or inflate their resumes to get internships. Unscrupulous students will later claim their internships as "professional experience." Clearly, that is what Sara Jacobs's is doing. Perhaps that's why the super-PAC adopted her

"fresh face" as the tagline. Behind the fresh face is little substance. One longtime North County politician described a speech by Sara Jacobs as one befitting a candidate for student body president, not one running for Congress. One might be taken aback by the hubris of a 29-year-old who presumes to acquire the 49th Congressional District with nothing more than deep pockets. On Nov. 28, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Sara Jacobs is accustomed to moving to the front of the patronage line. In 2015, granddaughter Jacobs wanted to work for the Hillary Clinton campaign. Clinton's campaign turned her down. Not to worry. Grandfather Jacobs is one of the largest donors to the Democratic Party. Mary Pat Bonner, a major Democratic Party fundraiser, began lobbying John Podesta, Clinton's campaign manager, on Jacobs's behalf. In short order, Sara Jacobs was hired as a "foreign policy adviser," according to the U-T article. Her credentials as a "foreign policy adviser?" At the time, granddaughter Jacobs had 28 months of professional experience, plus three internships. Despite limited professional experience and her brief residency in Encinitas, Ms. Jacobs is eager to move on to bigger and better things. But one wonders how she might represent her constituents. The political spin is that she's a "native" who grew up in the district and attended Torrey Pines, a public high school. Arguably, a coastal heiress is hardly qualified to represent the rest of the 49th, the lower 99.99 percent of the economic pyramid. Her coastal gilded palace of privilege is a million miles from Camp Pendleton, Fallbrook and Valley Center.

Civilians working with active-duty Navy and Marines often develop sensitivity to the isolation of today's professional military. It's said that five percent fight our wars. The other 95 percent go shopping. According to the U.S. Census, over 46,000 veterans live in the 49th. Some carry visible physical wounds of combat. Others carry their wounds inside as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The sacrifices and challenges of active duty and retired military men and women ought to be on the front burner of anyone in Congress representing the 49th. There are other differences that set apart this trust-fund fresh face from her constituents. In the 49th, per capita income is $42,826. The average citizen in the 49th would have to work 5.8 years and give all those earnings to Sara Jacobs, just to match her grandfather's single check. In the 49th, about 9 percent live below the poverty level. About a quarter live in households where a language other than English is spoken. The 49th is a purple district. Republicans outnumber Democrats, 37% to 31%, with 26% stating no party preference. Representing such a diverse district requires a strong leader who can address constituent needs across the political, cultural and economic divides. Developing those leadership skills ought to happen before running for Congress. In the process, a fresh face might get a bit crusty. David Dozier is professor emeritus in the School of Journalism & Media Studies, San Diego State University. He helped establish the military public affairs officers (PAO) program at SDSU. A Democrat, he has lived in Encinitas for 29 years.

y the time most folks reach 70, even very impetuous males, they’ve realized the truth of the hallowed cliché, “act in haste, repent at leisure.” But apparently not President Trump. By many reports, he announced a massive round of tariffs on foreign materials and goods like steel and aluminum in a fit of pique, angered because his sonin-law and adviser Jared Kushner could not get a full security clearance. Within less than a week, there were already signs of regret. This was prompted not only by loud criticism from some of his fellow Republicans in Congress, but also because some other countries and federations, most notably the European Union, began openly contemplating their own tariffs on American goods, especially those made in “red” states that backed Trump in the 2016 election, goods like blue jeans and bourbon. For a businessman widely experienced in the give-and-take of negotiating, Trump surely knew that for every action there’s a reaction. He likely was not surprised when, for example, Canada began openly thinking about tariffs on cars built in states Trump carried, from Nissans (Tennessee) and Mercedes-Benzes (Alabama) to Chryslers (Michigan). So Trump began backtracking. He started by suggesting he might relent on tariffs affecting Canada and Mexico if a “better deal” emerges from current talks on revising the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). But so far, there’s been no backing off prospective tariffs against goods from China, Japan and

california focus thomas d. elias South America, among the largest buyers of exported California products from high-tech silicon chips to movies and food products. Even if Europe were to target red-state industries, China and Japan probably cannot. That’s because so much of their trade with America is actually trade with California. California rice, grown in the Sacramento River Valley north of the state capital, is a staple of the Japanese diet because population growth long ago outstripped Japan’s ability to grow enough on its own. China is the largest foreign market for American films, mostly produced by California-headquartered firms, even if some of those companies are foreign owned. And much of Asia depends on computer chips developed in the Silicon Valley. Wine and nut exports to China are also substantial. If Trump thought retaliation against his proposed tariffs would hurt California, he didn’t say so. But given the context of his seeming vendetta against the Golden State because it has defied him on several fronts, chances are he would not mind that. Of course, if Central Valley farms begin to suffer and fallow fields and orchards because tariffs are cutting down the exports that consume almost half their output, it just might harm the electoral prospects of GOP congressmen like Jeff Denham, Devin Nunes and David Valadao, who have toed almost the full Trump line for the last 16 months.

And California farmers are expecting big trouble if Trump insists on the tariffs. They now take in more than $21 billion from foreign markets, with California almonds, for example, dominating nut sales almost everywhere. California vintners also would suffer. Wheat growers immediately protested the tariffs, and some large grain farmers were major Trump financial backers in 2016. California farms account for much of the world’s crop of table grapes, olive oil, raisins, figs, artichokes, dates, kiwis and canned, pitted fruits like peaches, plums and apricots. China imposed 25 percent and 15 percent tariffs on some of those items, including grapes, almonds and walnuts. Put a serious crimp in the China trade, as the nascent tariff war could do, and rather than helping decrease America’s trade deficit, the new levies could worsen it. So if he ever reflects on his insistence on tariffs – by all reports, against the advice of his top economists – Trump may come to regret it. But even though he frequently denies saying things days after they were videoed and recorded, he won’t be able to label the consequences of tariffs as fake news. Rather those consequences could include a new recession, loss of millions of American jobs and assured electoral defeat in 2020. The bottom line: Trump acted in haste on the tariffs and unless he relents soon, he could regret it the rest of his life. So might a lot of other people. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Buena Creek part of Creek to Bay Cleanup By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — I Love A Clean San Diego is gearing up for its next Creek to Bay Cleanup effort. On April 21, from 9 a.m. to noon, volunteers will gather to support a healthier environment through trash pickup at Buena Creek in Vista. Last year, I Love A Clean San Diego reported 6,500 volunteers removed 170,000 pounds of litter at 112 different locations. Stephanie Jackel, president of the nonprofit South Vista Communities, is a regular volunteer at Buena Creek. She and other supporters of South Vista Communities have pitched in since the organization’s inception in 2006. “The city of Vista is our immediate partner in this, and they are just terrific,” she said. “They let us know when this (cleanup) is happening, and we help gather our volunteers.” This year volunteers will specifically clean up the area around the Buena Creek. Andrea McCullough, city communications officer, said each year the city hosts this annual cleanup in partnership with I Love a Clean San Diego. “Every year Vista residents join other volunteers to clean up Buena Creek,” McCullough said. “We appreciate our local volunteers' efforts and applaud their assistance in helping to beautify our wonderful city and in keeping our waterways clean.” Jackel said the Buena Creek cleanup area is near The Burlington Coat Factory lot, and across the street at Stater Brothers. The creek stretches from Sycamore Avenue to Shadowridge Drive. According to Jackel,

in 2017 they had about 60 volunteers at Buena Creek. Those who pitch in range from students working on community service goals, to families and members of group organizations. “If any person volunteering is under 18, they need to have a waiver signed by their parent or guardian,” she said. “Almost every year, we have had a couple of sets of grandparents with their grandkids.” Volunteers are advised to wear sturdy shoes, long pants and long sleeves. Although water will be provided, Jackel said it’s a good idea to bring a bottle anyway. Jackel said there is a need to clean up the Buena Creek area. For those unaware of the litter, Jackel said a walk around the creek beds reveals accumulated debris ranging from trash to old garage doors and used mattresses. People would be shocked by it, she said. The city supplies volunteers with water, gloves, pickers and bags for trash. It also makes arrangements with EDCO to have a large dumpster on site. “If volunteers find a lot of big items, the city tells us to leave it in a certain place like by the curb and then city crews go by and pick those up,” she said. Jackel said the Creek to Bay Cleanup is important because it’s about taking care of the community. “Picking up trash definitely affects our quality of life,” she said. To volunteer for the cleanup on April 21, register at CreekToBay.org and locate the Zone 2 tab. From there, scroll down to find Buena Creek to complete the registration process.

San Marcos commercial property sells for $1.75 million By Christina Macone-Greene

SAN MARCOS — A San Marcos commercial property on the market for about a year was recently purchased for $1.75 million. The 1.28-acre parcel located at 1075 Grand Avenue, adjacent to State Route 78, was sold by American Fence Company to new owners Bemus Landscape, Inc. Representing the buyers was Pacific Coast Commercial. According to Dave Dilday, director of land and investment sales of Pacific Coast Commercial, what made the property so ideal for his buyers was the excellent freeway location and high visibility heading west. Headquartered in San Marcos, Bemus Landscape will sell its former property and move operations to the new location. “The new property is a larger and better location,” Dilday said. “There’s one small brick building that’s about 1,000 feet, and then there were some metal buildings on the property. They (Bemus Landscape) are going to fix up the existing buildings and use those as their offices.” In addition to an office, Bemus

Landscape will also use the property as a yard area for its business. Dilday estimates that Bemus Landscape will move to the Grand Avenue location within the next 60 days. “The compelling part about this property is it’s directly next to a large piece of property that the city of San Marcos owns,” Dilday said. “It’s a commonly referred to as the triangle property. That property is zoned commercial as is this property. Currently, the city of San Marcos is working with a developer to build an outdoor mall concept from that property.” Dilday said the new Bemus Landscape property is right next to the city’s “triangle property,” so it naturally has a strong brand residual value due to the future use of the property next door. Dilday said his work is geared toward businesses in San Diego County wanting to relocate within the county. “Primarily, I assemble land for mixed-use projects or commercial/ residential property that’s throughout the county,” he said. “I go into different cities and municipalities and find out where they’re looking to create a

new project. I then go in and look at the community plan and then when I find out where they want to locate these new projects.” Sometimes Dilday’s work includes contacting the owners of those properties to see if they are interested in selling them on behalf of his clients. Dilday said selling the Grand Avenue property was a bit of a challenge because of the grandfathered industrial zoning. While several potential buyers looked at the property, what they needed it for would have required a conditional use permit. This could have been a long, challenging process with the city of San Marcos, Dilday said. “Fortunately, Bemus Landscaping had a good consultant that had worked with the city of San Marcos before,” he said. According to Dilday, the consultant explained to the city that the new use would not be much different than its former property owner American Fence Company. “This made the transaction a much quicker process,” Dilday said.

Mayor Jim Desmond, who voted for the project, said that he felt that residents who pursued the signature drive echoed the anti-development sentiment he said he sees countywide. “It’s frustrating because nobody wants growth near them,” Desmond said. “We are in a tough spot because we are being forced

by the state to build housing, and if we don't (approve it) they are going to allow it.” Desmond said that cities have a duty to make sure that growth is regulated, which he believes San Marcos is doing.

Before Listing Your North County Home for Sale North SD County

- According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what

you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To order a FREE Special Report, visit www.ElevenInspectionTraps.com or to hear a brief recorded message about how to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free 855-840-6489 and enter 1003. You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Get your free special report NOW to learn how to ensure a home inspection doesn’t cost you the sale of your home.

Abed expands on city’s immigration decision By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — The city’s decision to file amicus briefs supporting the Trump administration’s legal challenge against California’s sanctuary laws was one issue brought up during Mayor Sam Abed’s town hall meeting on April 11. Resident turnout was low, about a dozen people, but one man challenged Abed on his views of immigration and the city’s 4-1 vote to support the federal case. O n April 16, Mayor Abed Abed also rallied for support during an anti-illegal immigration rally in San Diego, an event to urge the San Diego County Board of Supervisors to join a lawsuit against the state. “Our No. 1 priority is public safety,” he said. “Our policies are driven by public safety. We used to pick up criminals only.” Last week, Abed reaffirmed his position on eliminating SB 45, otherwise known as The California Values Act, which prohibits local law enforcement from cooperating with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. Abed, who immigrated

SUPERVISORS CONTINUED FROM 1

sial as it was. Gaspar, at a news conference announcing the decision, displayed two stacks of emails she had received. Those supporting the decision outnumbered the emails opposing it by a wide margin. Inside of the supervisors chambers, however, speakers in opposition to the board supporting the lawsuit outnumbered those speaking in support by a 3-1 margin. Thirty-nine speakers urged the board to not support the lawsuit, which they said would tear apart families and keep many immigrants from reporting crimes because of fear of deportation. “California is the sixth largest economy in the world and that reason is because immigrant workers and families are valued here for many reasons including the contributions they provide to this economy,” said David Garcias, president of the Service Employees International Union Local 221, one of the region’s most powerful labor unions. “I believe you are on the wrong side of history, and this is going to affect your legacy.” Milad Tarabi, a member of the group San Diego Border Dreamers, said that the supervisors’ decision to join the lawsuit would jeopardize public safety by moving more immigrants into the shadows, making it less likely they will report crimes. “The community mem-

to the U.S. from Lebanon 30 years ago, said since 2010, Escondido police and ICE have arrested and deported about 2,000 illegal immigrant criminals. He said those illegal families who work, go to school and contribute to the community were not targets. Now, he said, those individuals are being targeted because ICE and the Escondido Police Department can’t coordinate. Abed also said he supports Dreamers, children of illegal immigrants who are also subject of deportations. “After SB 54, we were no longer allowed to cooperate with ICE,” he added. “The overwhelming majority of people support our action.” One of the biggest issues on a national scale, Abed continued, is immigration reform, which he supports. However, he said the logjam in Congress is due to Republicans wanting cheap labor and Democrats chasing votes. Those two aspects, he added, are why reform is not possible, yet. In other news, Abed also discussed the San Diego Association of Governments pumping $7 million for an environmental impact report and construction of an HOV lane from Interstate 15 to Highway 78. bers are the eyes and ears of the police department, they are an invaluable resource,” Tarabi said. “When we are in fear of contacting law enforcement because of the fear of being deported or detained, that will hurt our law enforcement and actually jeopardize our public safety.” The Trump administration filed a suit against three California laws, although much of the focus has been on Senate Bill 54, known as the “California Values Act,” which prohibits local law enforcement from sharing information about undocumented immigrants — including their release from custody. Assembly Bill 103 prohibits local governments across California from adding new contracts with the federal government for civil immigration detention or expanding old ones. AB 450 prohibits employers from voluntarily allowing immigration officials into nonpublic areas of the workplace unless the officers have judicial warrants and requires employers to notify employees about upcoming immigration inspections. San Diego County becomes the second county in Southern California to vote to support the lawsuit. Orange County did so in March and several cities — including Los Alamitos and Mission Viejo — have taken similar actions. Los Alamitos voted this month to exempt itself from the state laws.

Oceanside plans salute to ‘Hometown Heroes’ OCEANSIDE — Start planning your parade entry now for the 24th annual Oceanside Independence Parade, set for June 30, honoring three Hometown Heroes. To participate or volunteer in the parade, complete the parade or volunteer application at oceansideparade.com.   The grand marshal of this year’s parade and the first Hometown Hero to be recognized is Jim Wood, former mayor of Oceanside. An Oceanside resident since 1955, Wood spent almost all of his adult life in public service. Wood was an Oceanside police officer for 31

years before serving as a councilmember and mayor for the last 16 years. He retired in January. “Our ‘Hometown Heroes’ theme was selected to celebrate those like Wood who have made an ex t raordinary difference in the Oceanside c om mu n i ty. Come

out in your best patriotic duds and wave your American flags as we pay tribute to them, along with our nation, our city and our local businesses.” “We owe so much to our Oceanside community partners and parade sponsors,” said MainStreet Oceanside’s execu-

tive director, Rick Wright. “Without their support, it would be very tough to continue the legacy that this parade represents to our city residents." Starting at 10 a.m. at the intersection of North Coast Highway and Wisconsin Avenue, the parade will travel north on Coast Highway to Civic Center Drive. More than 100 parade entries are expected to march, roll, walk and drive down historic Highway 101. A local tradition since 1892, the Oceanside Independence Parade is made possible by the assistance of more than 100 volunteers.

Cypress Court home to happy, healthy, active seniors ESCONDIDO — On any given day, Cypress Court is bustling with activity. From the dining room, to the fitness center to the garden and beyond, there is no shortage of socializing or smiles. It’s clear that this isn’t an ordinary senior living community. “We like to think of it as a cruise ship on land,” said Executive Director Donna Daniel-Herr. For nearly 30 years, Cypress Court has been home to seniors who have made the transition to independent or assisted living. “Our residents get many of the benefits of being in a resort environment, combined with care if they need it,” Daniel-Herr said. Recognizing that the transition can often be overwhelming, Cypress Court likes to help before residents’ boxes are even packed. “A lot of times people look at the actual move

as a mountain, and they don’t know where to start,” Sales Director Catherine Babinski said. “We provide them with resources for their first steps. Whether they need help organizing, packing or deciding which items to bring, our goal is to support them each step of

the way.” “At Cypress Court we have a keen understanding of the importance of providing excellent care to our residents as well as giving piece of mind to their friends and family,” Daniel-Herr said. Cypress Court is truly

a home to both its residents and staff. “We love what we do here, and it’s reflected in how you feel when you walk in the door,” Daniel-Herr said. “Our residents and staff are very happy.” Cypress Court has something for everyone. “We have a variety of card groups, physical, and educational programs,” Babinski said. “We do a lot of brain health activities too, and we have an extensive transportation program for appointments and errands. One of the key staff members is Wellness Director Judy Lucous. “We strongly feel that an active resident is a well resident, which is where Judy comes in,” Daniel-Herr said. “We do a baseline test when residents move in to test their balance, strength and gait. Then a few months later we do another test to see how much they’ve improved. We keep residents busy with

balloon volleyball, resident-instructed yoga, chair Zumba, balance classes, and more.” Cypress Court cares for its residents. “Our executive director meets with residents every Monday afternoon to let them voice their concerns, kudos, and address things they want new or improved,” Babinski said. One such example is the new garden, which will have a grand opening on May 1. “The residents wanted more gardening space, and we listened to them,” Daniel-Herr said. “Residents will be able to garden just as they did in their own homes.” The dining program is another huge draw. “We have a great dining program, residents can come down for restaurant-style dining from our extensive menu from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.,” Babinski said. “One of our

94-year-old residents likes to tell visitors the food is so good she has to walk up and down the stairs to make sure she stays nice and fit!” Cypress Court has oneand two-bedroom apartments, at about 600 square feet and 850 square feet, respectively. “Our two-bedrooms are dual master suites and each unit has a full kitchen,” Babinski said. Cypress Court is located at 1255 North Broadway in Escondido. The grand opening for the garden is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 1. “We will have music and our dining services will be preparing delicious appetizers,” Babinski said. “We will have planting, workshops and more.

The Road and Repair Accountability Act is a landmark transportation investment to rebuild California by fixing neighborhood streets, freeways and bridges. “The passage of SB1 means that $52 billion is being invested over the next 10 years to complete projects in our communities,” John Hakel, Executive Director of Southern California Partnership for Jobs said. “While this is a victory for our state, we are working to increase awareness about the continuous need for long term infrastructure funding.” According to Hakel, the bill amounts to approximately $5 billion a year to support infrastructure improvements, but it’s a drop in the bucket compared to what is actually needed. “To get everything in tip-top shape, we would need $300 billion,” he said. Southern

California Partnership for Jobs works with cities and local regional agencies to raise public awareness and educate elected officials about the most severe infrastructure needs to improve conditions within our communities. Southern California Partnership for Jobs is a nonprofit which represents 2,750 contractors who employ more than 90,000 union workers in Southern California. “In 2014 there was a frustration by both the general contractor community and unions about the lack of transportation tax funds available to fix the degradation of our infrastructure,” Hakel said. “The unions and contractors came together to fund and begin supporting a way to strategically educate the public and public officials why there needs to be more infrastructure funding.” Prior to SB1, there was no designated state money to address these issues. “We couldn’t motivate the legislature to come up with

MISTAKEN IDENTITY

Around 4:30 a.m. on March 22, High Point, North Carolina, 911 dispatchers received a surprising call from a man informing them he had broken into a business. "Yes, this is Jesus Christ, and I just broke into the Pizza Hut," claimed 46-year-old Richard Lee Quintero of Greensboro, according to WFMY TV. "Jesus is here, he's back to Earth. I just broke in and had a pizza. I'm Jesus," Quintero told dispatchers. "Because I'm Jesus, I can do whatever I want."

EXTREME MEASURES

Shannon Dean Egeland, 43, of Kuna, Oregon, was found guilty Feb. 28 in an elaborate scheme to delay a prison sentence and collect insurance. The Idaho Statesman reported that shortly before Egeland was to begin a 10-year jail term in 2014 for his role in a $20 million housing scandal, he took out a disability insurance policy and talked his then-17-year-old son into shooting him in the legs with a 20-gauge shotgun,

a game plan to address these very critical problems,” Hakel said. “The cities and counties didn’t have the money; the state didn’t have the money. But with SB1 funds, we have begun to clean up and make our roads and communities safer.” The benefits of SB1’s passage is twofold. While transportation infrastructure projects make safer communities, it also means more local jobs. “SB1 is a job creator,” Hakel said. “The White House Council of Economic Advisors found that every $1 billion invest-

ed in transportation infrastructure supports 13,000 jobs a year. SB1 is putting people to work rebuilding California. In Encinitas, the Santa Fe Drive Corridor Bike and Pedestrian Improvement Project is a prime example of SB1 funs at work. “The city knew exactly what project needed funding, and said ‘We have got to fix this,” Hakel said. The city of Vista submitted a request for projects that needed construction overlay work. Work is currently underway. Solana Beach has an

which would delay his prison term -- not to mention let him collect on the new insurance policy. After the teenager shot him, Egeland called police and said he'd been assaulted, but police became suspicious when they found Egeland's wallet and BMW were still at the scene. U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown tacked three years and 10 months of additional time onto Egeland's original sentence. Egeland, who eventually lost his left leg, stood before the judge on his prosthetic leg and said he'd had a lot of time to reflect on his crimes and realized he needs mental health counseling. Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Bradford called him a "menace to society." [Idaho Statesman, 2/28/2018]

JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH

It's been a twisty, U-turny road for Brittany Ann Koerselman, 19, and her first (soon-to-be second) husband, Jeremie Rook, 24, of Little Rock, Iowa. The two originally married in 2014, when Koerselman, then 15, was pregnant with Rook's child. But they divorced when she was 18. "He just wasn't ready to be all of that," Koerselman told Metro News. "The parent, the husband, the responsible person. He just wasn't ready for that." She said she and Rook have gotten back together and split up seven times since their divorce, but they can't stand being apart, so they're planning a "f-ing princess wedding" for this summer.

Proposition 69, which will be on the June ballot, is crucial to ensure SB1 funds continue to support local infrastructure. “A “yes” vote on this proposition means that the state can’t take away money and use it for other things,” Hakel said. “It assures the voter that those projects approved will be funded and will be completed.” Southern California Partnership for Jobs stays got swollen on the way to Missouri -- it's six hours (drive), so my shoes didn't fit," Koerselman recalled.

The need for speed – Cox Internet now twice as fast When it comes to the internet, one of the things consumers value most is speed. It frees up their time by completing tasks faster, it makes watching a movie or listening to music more enjoyable, and it could be the difference between winning or losing while gaming with an opponent in another country. So, how much speed do you need? That depends on how you’re using the internet, and how many connected devices you have in your home. Whether you’re using the internet for basic search, paying bills, and shopping online, or are a multi-generational household with multiple connected devices streaming simultaneously, there’s some great news on the internet speed front. Cox Communications, which already offers some of the fastest consumer internet speeds in the nation, recently doubled the speed for most

of its customers in San Diego County. Cox offers a variety of internet service plans, so households can select the option that best fits their needs. Take a short quiz on the speed advisor at www. cox.com to determine which speed is right for you. Cox doubled the download speed for three of its service plans: Starter, Essential and Preferred.  The new download speed for Preferred, the company’s most popular tier of service, is now up to 100 Mbps.  The Starter and Essential plans are ideal for lighter users with one to five devices connected to the home network.  The new download speed for Essential is now up to 30 Mbps and Cox Starter is now up to 10 Mbps and.  The speed increases went into effect automatically for all Cox High Speed Internet customers with those service plans

in San Diego. “Speed increases are one of many ways we continually add value for our customers,” said Suzanne Schlundt, Vice President of Field Marketing for Cox Communications. “Today, the majority of Cox

customers in San Diego are now enjoying speeds twice as fast.”   Faster speeds, including the company’s Ultimate and Gigablast service plans, have been made possible by continual investments in Cox’s

network coupled with the deployment of new technology and infrastructure. Cox is also improving the in-home WiFi experience with Panoramic WiFi, ensuring wireless internet service is “wall-to-wall” fast throughout every nook and cranny of the home. “Our internet customers have embraced Panoramic WiFi,” said Schlundt. “Our technicians will literally walk your home from wall to wall to identify any dead spots and turn them into live spots so that you can have an optimal wifi experience in your home.” Cox plans to invest $10 billion in its infrastructure over the next five years, with a focus on enhancing the customer experience inside and outside of the home.  The company already provides its internet customers with access to more than half a million wifi hotspots

nationwide. GIG SPEED AHEAD Cox, which was the first company to launch residential gigabit speeds in San Diego under the product name Gigablast, has continued the expansion of gigabit speeds to households countywide. Gigabit speeds (1,000 Mpbs) are the fastest residential internet speeds around. When you have a gigabit connection, you can download 100 songs within three seconds, 1,000 photos in 16 seconds, and a two-hour movie in eight seconds. You can also run dozens of connected devices simultaneously at blazing fast speeds, which is key if you are planning on adding the increasingly popular smart home devices to your household. For more information on gigabit speeds and see how fast they are, go to www.cox. com/giglife.

Program simplifies home-selling process for seniors REGION — Selling a home can be overwhelming for anyone, especially for seniors selling a home they have lived in for decades. Anyone who has sold a home can relate to the anxiety associated with a range of unknowns including what repairs need to be made, how often will strangers be coming through their home, how long will it take to sell and what are the fees, just to name a few. Add in the emotional attachment to their home and the uncertainty about the timing or availability of their next home and the entire process can be very stressful. Rob Perkins and his sister Corinne Ross experienced this firsthand with their grandparents. “My sister and I went through this with both sets of grandparents,” Perkins said. “They had lived in their homes for a long period of time and both

of their spouses had passed. They needed extra care and couldn’t live by themselves any longer.” The siblings wanted to do something to help. “It was overwhelming for our grandparents,” Perkins said. “It took an all hands on deck effort from multiple family members to accomplish the task of selling their homes. Knowing that we weren’t the only family to deal with this, Corinne and I thought, ‘There has got to be a way to solve this problem.’” After investing in residential real estate for a decade, Perkins and Ross created the Senior Home Purchase Program (SHPP) in 2015. They wanted to offer seniors a transparent and simple way to transition to senior living. What differentiates SHPP from a traditional home sale is that there is no real estate agent required, no

home preparation, no showings and no fees. Homes are sold “as is” — clutter and all. There are no failed escrows, no commissions, no closing costs and no repair credits or seller concessions — it is a certain sale at a certain price. The SHPP team works with homeowners to give them the best price for their home on a flexible timeline that works for the seller. “Seniors are often in a position where they don’t know when they are going to be able to move into a community,” Ross said. “This can be very stressful. We provide them flexibility with the closing date and even offer a lease back option if they need extra time after they sell and before they move into their new home.” The process is staggeringly simple compared to selling on the open market. “The first step is we speak to the homeowner on the phone and provide them an

overview of the process,” Perkins said. “We then set up an in-person meeting at their home where we bring our contractor to conduct a comprehensive inspection of the home.” After this first meeting, SHPP spends on average four to six hours doing their homework on the property and the

market. “We want to be 100 percent confident that we can close at the price we offer so we don’t get ourselves in a position where we have to ask for credits from the seller during escrow,” Perkins said. “Once our homework is completed, we come back for a second meeting where we present our absolute best of-

fer. We encourage the homeowners to invite as many family members as they would like to this meeting. Anyone they trust, we want there, whether it’s family, friends or trusted advisors.” Through a traditional market sale, a seller not only has commissions and closing costs to pay, but also will need to come out of pocket to prepare the home for sale. “Getting the home ready to sell can cost thousands of dollars,” Perkins stresses. “SHPP will purchase the home in its current condition and pays 100 percent of all costs associated with the sale. Our Senior Home Purchase Program can not only net our customers more money from their home, but it saves them an incredible amount of time and reduces their stress.” For information about the Senior Home Purchase Program, call (858) 859-0107 or visit westviewshpp.com.

vation centers with different size spaces for various users. “The reason we built this is to provide an amazing environment for fast-growing, high-tech companies for people in technology, manufacturing and robotics,” he said, adding that these are innovative businesses. “They can have their headquarters there, not to mention warehousing and distribution.” Vista Economic Development Director Kevin Ham said the city is pleased to welcome this type of innovative industrial and commercial project to the city. “Especially, those that help foster innovation in our city and along the Highway 78 Corridor,” Ham said. Badiee selected broker Conor Boyle with Colliers International to vet potential innovative companies for leasing opportunities. As far as the location, Keystone Innovation Industrial Park sits on top of a knoll and is visible from Palomar Airport and Mill roads. Badiee said the reason it had never been developed was due to inherent environmental challenges. “I can only say that the reason we managed to overcome the challenges was due to the hard work of a tremendous amount of people in our company, the consultants that we retained and the city of Vista who is an absolute pleasure to work with,” Badiee said. The Keystone property overlooks Carlsbad and there are no nearby neighbors.

Badiee also credits the talent of their brokers Colliers International, Tucker Hohenstein and Mike Erwin. “They alluded to the fact that this property has been available, but that it was a big challenge,” Badiee said. “And we have a history of taking on very challenging projects in the past.” Badiee said his company scouted the Keystone property in 2015 and recently managed to secure all the entitlements and all the documents necessary to begin the grading. An integral part of the negotiations included how many acres would be developed and remain untouched. “Out of these 10 acres Badiee Development breaks ground on Keystone Innovation Industrial Park, leaving five acres of the 10-acre site undisturbed. Courtesy photo we dedicated five acres surrounding our property to be kept undisturbed. The city, the county and in general all of the environmental-related entities involved, they wanted the beauty of open space, which is why it was so challenging to get the entitlement,” he said. “We worked together to preserve that, and we dedicated five acres of our property to remain as open space.” Badiee said the collaboration was important, because as a developer, they were not treating this property as a typical developer that wanted to maximize. “While we want to build the most that we can, we are sensitive to keeping the beauty of the environment and allow five acres of this land to be dedicated in this way,” he said. “We conduct our affairs differently in our company and are socially responsible developers.”

— In Toronto, a group of animal rights advocates started protesting outside a restaurant called Antler in early December. By March, the protests had grown, and Antler's co-owner, Michael Hunter, had had enough of the "murder" signs and "You've got blood on your hands" chants. So on March 23, he told the Globe and Mail, he figured, "I'm going to have my own protest. ... This is who we are and what we do. So I went and got a deer leg." Hunter brought a cutting board, knife and the hindquarter of a deer into the front window and butchered the meat while the protesters looked on. As a result, Hunter and the protesters are now trying to open a dialogue, and reservation requests at Antler have increased. [Globe and Mail, 3/28/2018]

Man, 91, injured in crash

SAN MARCOS — A 91-year-old man was seriously injured in a four-vehicle crash in San Marcos, authorities said. Deputies were dispatched to the crash at 5:33 p.m. April 13 at 1615 W. San Marcos Blvd., said Deputy Tammy Bennetts of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department. The man was behind the wheel of a 2017 Kia Sportage traveling northbound on South Rancho Santa Fe Road toward West San Marcos Boulevard when he ran a red light and made a right turn, colliding with a 2006 BMW 535, Bennetts said. He continued east on San Marcos Boulevard and

attempted to make a left turn into the shopping center across from San Marcos High School. While trying to make the left turn, the front of the Kia collided with a 2002 GMC Sonoma pickup truck and then with a 2018 Infiniti Q70, according to Bennetts. The Kia then came to rest facing eastbound in the westbound lanes of San Marcos Boulevard. The San Marcos Fire Department responded to the collision and took the driver of the Kia to Palomar Medical Center with serious injuries, she said. Alcohol is not a factor in the collision, Bennetts added. — City News Service

Mayor touts adult education at annual career fair By Promise Yee

VISTA — Vista Adult School held its annual Career and Resource Fair this month during the statewide Adult Education Week. At the career fair, Mayor Judy Ritter honored the adult education center with a proclamation and visited with participants. Ritter said her message to those in attendance was the city is working with Vista Unified School District to educate and elevate residents, and provide more options for personal and professional growth. The annual Career and Resource Fair showcased job opportunities and shared roads to gain employment. A variety of peo-

ple attended ranging from young job seekers to older employed folks seeking a better paying job. Information tables filled the school auditorium and spilled out to adjacent rooms. Among those hiring were San Diego County Sheriff, the city Fire Department, Vista Community Clinic and local banks and businesses. Representatives discussed job opportunities and needed training. Ritter said the education center was the perfect setting to hold the event. Students attending classes at the center were introduced to a variety of career paths, and those drawn to the career fair had an op-

portunity to learn what the center has to offer. Ritter said adult education is important to those who need to complete a high school education, as well as those seeking further training. She added she was struck by the news of the high number of skilled workers employers will be seeking by 2020, and the education gap that exists. Estimates are 65 percent of all jobs will require some post-secondary education in two years. Ritter said a significant number of Americans do not have basic reading and writing skills that adult education centers can teach. “There’s a lot of people in that position,” Ritter said. Education gives prospective employees a leg up. Data shows that a person with a high school diploma earns $9,620 more than one without a high school education. In the workforce, low-skilled workers are two times as likely to be unemployed, three times as likely to live in poverty, and eight times as likely to be incarcerated.

Adult Education Week in California shines a light on how adult education centers bridge the education gap. Vista Adult School serves more than 2,800 adult students annually with high school graduation, technical education, and college preparation courses. It offers a wide range of low-tuition classes including adult basic education, English as a second language and citizenship. Students seeking a better job can enroll in certificate programs for medical, culinary, information technology and business careers. Personal enrichment classes are also offered such as yoga, line dancing and physical fitness. The school provides a variety of support services for students that include counseling, academic planning, job placement and college transition. Free childcare is also available to students. Vista Adult School was also honored with a proclamation from county Supervisor Bill Horn during Adult Education Week, which ran from April 9 to April 13.

Escondido police, districts focus on school safety By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — The city’s police department and school officials are joining forces to ensure safety on campuses. The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which resulted in 17 deaths, has spurred action from public and private schools, along with police officials. Since the Parkland shooting, the Escondido Police Department reported six threats on Escondido campuses, although no shootings materialized. Still, the department said it takes every threat seriously and each is investigated “fully.” Several meetings have been conducted, according to Lt. Ed Varso, to scrutinize all current safety plans.

Plans include evaluations of site security measures including fencing, gates, doors, controlled access points, training, adding a School Resource Officer and encouraging the reporting of suspicious activity. “Don’t discount what you have heard,” police Chief Craig Carter said. “Call us. If you hear something, see something, say something.” School officials are in talks to provide funding for additional school resource officers, full-time police officers assigned to service the specific needs on school campuses. Carter stressed the importance of students understanding the severity of making a school threat. Any threat, regardless of intent, will likely result in felony charges. Escondido Union High School

District Superintendent Steve Boyle spoke on behalf of the various public, private and faith-based schools. “Our schools are safe places,” he said. Boyle encouraged staff, parents and students to continue to work together to help ensure the safety of school campuses. Those with information on a possible school threat can leave an anonymous tip through San Diego Crime Stoppers by calling (888) 5808477. An additional option is to download the “P3 Tips” smartphone app. The app allows users to send an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers for a variety of reasons, including school threats and school bullying incidents.

Swayze Foundation Benefits Youth April 8th, 2018 - Government at all levels…Local, State and Federal…have made stressful reductions in funding for the Arts. The Swayze Foundation has been established by Charlene and Don Swayze to help those kids and special adults who have been caught in the middle with little or no funds or outlets for their pursuits in dance, sports, the arts, equestrian and animal therapies. Don’s brother, the late Patrick Swayze is a famed actor for his roles in Dirty Dancing, Point Break, Roadhouse and many other acclaimed movies. Don’s mother, Patsy, was a famed dance instructor for many Hollywood Stars who also gave tirelessly of her time to introduce dance to up and coming artists. Patsy’s dance academy literally had more students on scholarship than paying students. Patsy was a giver and volunteering was always a mainstay for both of Don and Patrick’s parents. Don’s father, Jesse, was instrumental in financing Patsy’s dance academy as well as volunteering to coach his kids in sports. Carrying on the tradition of “giving and volunteering” Don and Charlene have set up the Swayze Foundation to continue the legacy of helping others, just as Don’s parents did. Charlene Swayze, Don’s wife, has always been a philanthropist. Even as a very young child, Charlene would collect for UNICEF instead of trick or treating for candy. She would even ask for spare change for UNICEF! Every March Charlene would also collect for the March of Dimes charity to help newborns in need. As a child, Charlene would put on her Pantomime costume to volunteer and perform for the Muscular Dystrophy organization. Growing up in Campbell CA, a small town/city in

It’s the Swayze Way! “Swayze Baby” as Patrick would say! For Patrick Swayze is an Icon who is still loved around the World!

Just go to www.Swayze. co (not .com but .co) to make a donation or purchase items from the Swayze Store. 100% of the sale proceeds will go to The Swayze Foundation to gift scholarships for children as well as adults in need!

She now says adults.

“it is who I am now”! Later in life while Charlene had her own dance and gymnastic studio, she gave many scholarships to children who wanted to learn but could not afford it. For decades Charlene has tithed her income to give to others. “Giving a portion of my income to those in need are the first checks I write at the beginning of each month”! I give to those in need religiously. I have sponsored many many children all over the world for decades! Besides being a successful actor in his own right, volunteering is what Donny has always felt a calling for. Don has been volunteering as an acting teacher for many years. Don is also a gracious giver. Over the years he has donated Sky diving equipment, cars, motorcycles, bicycles and cycling gear. Don and Charlene are a benevolent, class act! Together they have established The Swayze Foundation to continue the Swayze Legacy of giving. It is who they are!

Are you calling me a pear? small talk jean gillette

W

hen chatting with my women friends, we always first settle the questions of how to eliminate foolish legislators, how to achieve world peace and how to save the rain forest. But before the day is over, the conversation unfailingly will turn to a depressing scrutiny of our body shape. The lament of the female body is a universal one and varies only so far as body types and gene pools vary. I believe we insist on discussing it endlessly because we always wrap up by reassuring each other that, “You look fine! No, really!” But memories of that kindness vanish quickly when we make the foolish mistake of shopping for a swimsuit or thoughtlessly disrobe near a full-length mirror. The discussion is usually launched when someone remarks, “I finally went through my closet and gave away those size-8 designer jeans I wore before the baby.” Each mom will have a similar wardrobe story to contribute. It generally consists of describing the beautifully tailored, timeless, expensive pre-conception wardrobe she spent 10 years building but can no longer get into. Then we’ll note the three mismatched sweat suits we’re wearing right now. Some hold on to the foolish belief that they will again wear those size 8s. They usually have just one child. The rest of us endlessly discuss the new wardrobe we will buy, just as soon as we win the lottery. The real depression hits when we finally starve ourselves back down to our pre-maternity weight and our old pants still won’t button. If this happens just as a friend is approaching her 40th birthday, we quickly

hand her the suicide prevention hot-line number. I finally lost the last 10 pounds, spurred on by the approach of my 20th high school reunion. I still needed extra-strength tummy control panty hose. And I frankly suspect that if I added up all the money I have spent on liquid diet powder over the past 10 years, it might well have purchased the complete Ann Klein II spring line – in a comfy size 12. Oh, of course there are those women who somehow regain those castiron stomachs and firm thighs within moments of childbirth and, unfortunately, most of them live right here in Southern California. Still, those of us with the more typical female flab accumulation retain the majority clout. Should one of those slim women cross our line of vision, we simply muddy the question of their character by gently observing that she must have neglected some critical phase of mothering. I mean, honey, how else would one find the time to exercise? If that doesn’t work, we casually drop terms like anorexia. When these inevitable conversations begin, I generally start fantasizing that I live in the French countryside where some adorable Frenchman coined my personal, all-time, least favorite term of endearment, “Mon petit anjou” (my little pear). Now, that pear shape is truly beautiful while we are with child. We can even stretch the acceptability out for a good eight or nine months of nursing (when one really must not diet), but when you’re celebrating your second child’s third birthday, the anjou shape looks a bit, well, overripe. I will continue to do my part to raise appreciation of the anjou-shaped body, but I have this hunch that its success in France relates directly to the fact that they drink wine with every meal.

Pacific Northwest continues to impress taste of wine frank mangio

A ton.

short time ago in this column, I made the case for the wines of Washing-

I thought the quality and depth of flavor coming from that No. 2 producing state had exponentially spread to buyer decisions. Shelf space in wine shops are making these wines available, especially the top combination of Chateau Ste. Michelle and Columbia Crest, combining massive farming, production and distribution tools to make a solid impression in the industry. Among the elite names in Washington, Leonetti of Walla Walla wowed a recent gathering of that state’s wine connoisseurs, with its signature style of blackberry and black tea. Flushed with this newfound discovery, I was attracted by one of the frequent Friday comprehensive tastings at Meritage Wine Market in Encinitas, underlining the Pacific Northwest. The other state featured was Oregon. Both states are a kind of hybrid wine style of the warm stable weather of the West Coast producing live-

ly fruit, combining with the cool nights that create added acidity during the growing season, an “old world" wine attraction. The lineup at Meritage included a few Oregon picks led by a Ken Wright Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014 ($30). With Pinot, you are in Oregon’s sweet spot. It excels at this varietal that resembles Burgundies coming out of the district of the same name in France, with rich flavors and muscular black cherry backbone. By far, the star of this tasting was the Quilceda Creek Columbia Valley Washington Red (CVR) 2015 ($72). This is worldclass Cabernet Sauvignon from the winery that was awarded Best Washington State Winery 2017 at Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate event. The CVR is a blend of 81 percent Cab Sauvignon, 11 percent Merlot, 4 percent Cab Franc and 4 percent Petit Verdot. Meritage called it “a decadent texture that slowly gives way to a vivid display of crushed violets, black plum, dark spices and chocolate dipped raspberries.” In 2015, Wine Spectator gave Quilceda Creek the No. 2 wine in all the world for its 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. This winery is located in the massive Columbia Valley of Washington. Visit at quilcedacreek. com.

GIANNI BUONOMO HAD ROOTS IN WASHINGTON

Keith Rolle was like most of us, he had several careers, migrating from cold Minnesota to hot Ensenada Mexico, all the while developing a passion for Washington wine. He followed his passion, moved to Washington and educated himself in the making of wine. When the time was right, he set up his own winery in sunny San Diego and in 2010 Gianni Buonomo Vintners was born, eventually to locate in the Ocean Beach district. Rolle is emphatic about sourcing the right fruit. “The grapes we use come from some of the top vineyards in Washington state and the Sierra foothills of California near Placerville. We keep our production small, allowing us to monitor how each individual barrel is aging.” About 2,000 cases of wine are made each year. According to Rolle, the wines sell out each vintage. A little known red varietal that’s become an award winner in some high-powered competition is the 2015 Charbono wine ($20 and up). It won Double Gold in this year’s San Francisco Chronicle event. Charbono is coming back from near oblivion with just 52 acres in Napa Valley and 27 acres elsewhere. This is a deep, bold, rustic essence of ripe black cherry, with lightly toasted oak and an enduring soft finish. Gianni Buonomo has

Sports Strong rewriting CSUSM record book SAN MARCOS — Cal State San Marcos track and field coach Jason Jackson was running late, thanks to the area’s weekend traffic that any local can verify. “I didn’t think I was going to make it, but I did,” said Jackson. “When I got into the stadium, I walked around the corner toward the ring and we made eye contact. He gave me a nod.” The reassuring bop of Ndoto Strong‘s noggin was all Jackson needed. “I never want to let my coach or my team down,” said Strong, a CSUSM junior. What came next on Strong’s final throw didn’t surprise Jackson at the recent Aztec Invitational. “There is never a doubt he is going to do what he needs to do,” Jackson said, “because he puts in the work.” The 6-foot-5, 284-pound Strong flexed his considerable muscles and heaved the shot put 16.75 meters to set a CSUSM standard. It also gave Strong his third NCAA provisional qualifying mark of the season as he continues to rewrite the Cougars’ record book for throws. Strong already owns the school’s top discus mark at 47.57 meters. Strong was also named the Cal State San Marcos Student-Athletes of the Month presented by The Quad for March 2018. “He’s also a beast in the weight room,” Jackson said. “If we kept a record book in there, he would have destroyed it.” One glance at Strong brings with it two reactions: he’s big enough to block out the sun and built in a manner that causes college football coaches to salivate. “I played football in high school but I tore up my ACL,” Strong said of a knee ligament. Instead he turned to track and field after growing up in rural Washington. It was on a farm where his family raised llamas that Strong learned the meaning of hard work and hard knocks. While Strong was a standout in sports, he struggled in the classroom. A learning disorder meant he had to read book passag-

VISTA — Taurus Samuels said he wanted to have fun while donning his Vista Panthers jersey one final time. The senior point guard was one of 30 players selected to participate in the San Diego County Hoops Report Senior All-Star Basketball Game, which pits the top graduating players against each other in a “north vs. south” format. Not only did Samuels have fun, he put on the performance of the night. With the North team leading by seven points entering the final quarter, Samuels scored 19 consecutive points to turn what was a competitive game into a

es “three or four times,” he said, before comprehending the subject. With his academic challenges, classmates often looked at Strong askew. And when they saw his special-needs sister, the blowback couldn’t be ignored. What they didn’t know was a cherished lesson the wise Strong learned early. “If you have a family member that has a disability, that can actually make you a better person,” Strong said. “It can make you more compassionate toward people. It can make you relate to people and their feelings.” Strong, who like his sister was adopted, could hear and sense the ridicule behind his back and it never left him. Now he’s involved with San Diego Sibshop, a support group for siblings of those with disabilities. “I didn’t have anyone to talk to and just kept it bottled up,” Strong said. “This group is a great idea to help these kids. I don’t want them to lash out at people and cause more problems for the family. I can be their teacher.” Strong’s relationship with Jackson has a foundation. After Strong moved to California he enrolled at San Diego Mesa College. Eager to continue in sports, minus football, he went out

for track and field where he met Jackson. When Strong heaved the shot put for Jackson, it was clear he had potential. When putting air under a discus, it was clear Strong had no clue. Enter Jackson’s plan for action: Strong competes in both throwing events, although he had thrown a Frisbee disc more than a discus. “I taught him the discus from scratch, which at the college level is unheard of,” Jackson said. “It took a long time and he was coming off a pretty severe knee injury. But he put in the work and it could end up being the better of his two events. He is really close to a big throw.” Jackson was certain he had seen the last of Strong after their parting at San Diego Mesa. CSUSM head coach Steve Scott asked Jackson to join the Cougars’ staff and Strong was bound for Western State College in Colorado. Then word came that Strong was shy a class to transfer. In an academic mix-up not of his own doing, Strong’s admission to Western State was rescinded. Jackson got wind of that and pounced in the name of CSUSM. “For me, it’s all about the team and doing my job,” Strong said. In and out of the throwing ring, it’s a job well done.

blowout. The North defeated the South team 130-110 and Samuels, who finished the game with 31 points — including nine three-point baskets — was named coMost Valuable Player. Akil Parrish, a 6-foot-5 senior from Morse High School, was named MVP of the South team. “It was just good to get out and play with these guys who I have been competing against practically my whole life,” Samuels said. “I’m just glad I had the opportunity to wear this jersey one last time and be out there with my friends.” Samuels, a 6-foot guard who is headed to Dartmouth, opened up the

fourth quarter with a driving layup before rattling off five consecutive three pointers, with the crowd getting louder with each attempt. He finished his 19-point run with another driving layup, and added a nifty assist before exiting for the game’s final three minutes with the game in hand. Isaiah Morris, Samuels’ back court mate at Vista, had nine assists, a team high, for the North. He will play at Cal State Dominguez Hills. Mission Hills forward Warren Washington, who is headed to Oregon State, scored 24 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. The North dominated the girls game, 102-50.

Adventures on the terrain of Tierra del Fuego hit the road e’louise ondash

T

he Ventus Australis is cruising east through the Ballenero Channel at the southern end of South America where the continent becomes, as geographers have called it, “a mess” of islands. This archipelago is part of Tierra del Fuego, which translates as Land of Fire, a reference to the native people’s fires that were spotted by the first European explorers. The western portion of Tierra del Fuego, including the islands and Cape Horn, lies within Chile’s border; the remainder belongs to Argentina. Much of Tierra del Fuego’s acreage comes under the national park systems of the two countries. Today, our destination is a portion of Alberto de Agostini National Park, a 3.6-million-acre preserve named after an Italian missionary who explored, photographed and documented the area’s ecosystem. Its islands, mountains, glaciers and fjords are nothing short of stunning. We decide that it’s difficult to capture the grandeur with camera or cell phone, but we’ll try. It’s Day Three of a fiveday cruise, part of the 17-day

Patagonian Frontiers Tour offered by Odysseys Unlimited. Our trip began in Santiago and will end in Buenos Aires; in between, we explore some of the 260,000 awe-inspiring square miles that is Patagonia. From the deck of the 200-passenger Ventus Australis, we seem surrounded by water and mountains. I give up trying to discern which way is north and focus on absorbing what we see — jagged, snow-laden mountains that jut everywhere from this wild land, and the glistening glaciers and fjords that are too numerous to count.

After a while, I start to doubt that all of this is real, but after lunch, we get our chance to confirm that it is. We pile into Zodiac rafts and cross the waters of Pia Fjord to an isolated moraine beach. We are in luck; the weather is fair and the landing easy. More often, in this land of unpredictable weather, conditions are much crazier. Once on shore, we drop our neon-orange life jackets and hike a short way up the trail that hugs the fjord. Our guide, Cris, encourages us to pause a moment to note the grandeur and silence of Pia Glacier. This works until

we hear — and feel — the rumbling crash of calving as huge chunks of ice pull away from the body of the tidewater glacier, so called because it flows into the sea. Unfortunately, we can’t see this force of nature because all of the action is happening across the water and around the corner, but there is no doubt that the terrain is on the move. So the calving continues and so must we. The group heads further up the forested trail where even better views of Pia Glacier and the fjord are ours. Slippery rocks and roots make the going slow,

but we eventually reach a plateau where an extraordinarily beautiful panorama of mountains, glaciers, sea, islands and forest come together before and around us. It’s another moment to take in — and to realize that we are only 600 miles from the South Pole. We are looking at landscape that has probably changed little in the last few centuries. What has changed are the inhabitants — that is, the lack of them. It’s a stunning fact that this landscape once was inhabited by Yaghan or Yamana, nomadic hunters and gatherers who lived naked in this harsh land. Predictably

and sadly, most died due to diseases carried by Europeans or their bullets. A blustery wind begins to whip at our faces (the only thing that is exposed) and in the distance, we can see dark clouds rolling over the top of the Cordillera Darwin mountain range. It’s time to head down the trail. Hot chocolate and/or whiskey greet us on our return to the beach. Back on the Ventus Australis, we cruise east through the Beagle Channel, named after the boat that brought Charles Darwin to this area. He sailed this way in the 1830s to study the area’s flora, fauna and native peoples. The channel is one of three routes around the bottom of the continent used regularly by sailors before the Panama Canal opened in 1914. More than 800 ships perished in the turbulent waters. Our day culminates with a real-life slide show of Glacier Alley, so named because of the many glaciers that creep down the mountains on the channel’s north side. As we slide through the icy water, the ship’s announcer relates the name of each glacier, which celebrate the European countries of France, Germany, Holland, Italy and Spain.
