San Elijo Town Center to break ground in summer By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS — After years of delays, it appears the developer of San Marcos’ San Elijo Hills community is ready to start work on the second phase of the community’s Town Center. City officials said they are expecting San Elijo Hills Development Co. to break ground on the lower portion of the town center this summer, after the city approves its grading plan and building permits. “Final grading plan approvals and building permits are expected to be completed by this summer, which are the final steps in the entitlement process,” City Manager Jack Griffin said in an email response to The Coast News. “The devel-
oper plans to break ground this summer.” The second phase will include 12 residential townhouses and 23,000 square

feet of retail space. The Town Center, which is the unofficial “downtown” of the San Marcos community, currently includes a gro-
cery store, gas station and bank, as well as retail units on the ground floor of mixedused developments. The last portion of the center that was finished was the gas station in 2008, but efforts to complete the Town Center stalled as a result of the recession, which ground much of the county’s retail development to a halt. Since then, the three vacant lots, which sit near the heart of the master-planned community, have sat vacant and become a notable eyesore to residents. In 2015, the developer updated the website with a message that said that the town center’s second phase was moving forward. “San Elijo Hills Development Company is thrilled
to share that we are working with an experienced and proven retail developer toward an agreement to build the second phase of the Town Center,” the message stated. “This next phase includes the open lot behind Chevron, the entire open lot across from the existing retail and the parcel of land directly behind Café Stoked leading up to Schoolhouse Way.” The community, which borders Carlsbad on San Marcos’ southern edge, has about 3,000 homes and condominium units and a population of more than 7,000 and includes a large elementary and middle school near its center, and a recently completed K-8 school at the top of San Elijo Road.

SAN MARCOS — Palomar College officials recently celebrated the groundbreaking of a massive five-story parking structure and a new public safety building on the San Marcos campus. Lot 12, the westernmost of the campus’ 18 parking lots, is the site of the nearly 500,000-squarefoot structure, which will house 1,615 parking spaces and 28 handicap accessible and six van spaces. According to a news release, the structure will be equipped with license readers, emergency phones
7,645-square-foot building is being constructed. The building will include a reception area, dispatch office, locker rooms, evidence room, secure interview room, conference/ emergency operations room, armory, report-writing room, and live scan room. The station will have a secure parking area for police vehicles, and will be equipped with cameras and an audio address system. Both projects are expected to be completed by the start of the 2018 spring semester in January.
Escondido mayor boos bill to sandbag SANDAG Vista council gives final approval on mixed-use rules By Adam Sullivan
ESCONDIDO — Mayor Sam Abed stood before SANDAG headquarters on April 14 to voice opposition to California Assembly Bill AB 805. AB 805 was introduced to California legislation by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher on Feb. 15. Julio Rivera is a representative from Assemblywoman Gonzalez Fletcher’s office. “The assembly member is essentially trying to accomplish three things,” Rivera said. “She’s trying to provide new authority to our transit districts in the North County, and at NTS, to raise their own sales tax to be able to fund their own priorities, to provide some new powers to those areas.” Gonzalez presides over District 80, which runs from the Tijuana border, up through Chula Vista and north into City Heights. AB 805 is designed to address greenhouse gas emission reduction rules and regula-

tions and identifying disadvantaged communities, but Abed’s umbrage stems from the proposed changes to the voting structure of SANDAG. SANDAG, the San Diego Association of Governments,
is the forum for regional decision-making in the San Diego region. It is comprised of mayors, council members and county supervisors from each of the region’s 19 local governments.
AB 805 is a multifaceted bill, and a hotly contended one at that. Supervisor Bill Horn from District 5 (along San Diego County’s northern border) TURN TO SANDAG ON 16
VISTA — The City Council gave final approval to rules intended to increase standards for residential projects in mixed-use areas, while keeping incentives for developers along North Santa Fe Drive. The council also allowed two projects on North Santa Fe Drive that were going through the planning process to continue operating under the current rules, changed the parcels at the corners of North Santa Fe Drive and Bobier Drive to commercial only, and extended the area where the new rules affect to one block north of Bobier Drive. “The only thing worse than big government, is when govern-
ment moves the ball on you, all the time, and you feel like Charlie Brown trying to kick the ball Lucy is holding,” Councilwoman Amanda Rigby said, regarding the projects that were still being planned. The original rules were designed for projects that combine commercial and residential uses on one property, addressing parking, setbacks, landscaping, and building height. The standards were intended to give developers more incentive to build here, and create more of a walkable, urban neighborhood. Many of the projects that were actually built in the area TURN TO MIXED-USE ON 15

Color Out Hunger Run takes place at CSUSM By Rebecca Sykes
SAN MARCOS — Food drives usually happen only during the holiday season. For Sonya Mclin, it just wasn’t enough. “Most of the time we do food drives during Thanksgiving,” Mclin, organizer of the Color Out Hunger Run, said. “Why do it once a year? Do it in the spring also because people are hungry all year around.” On April 15, California
State University San Marcos held its third annual Color Out Hunger Run to collect canned food for the hungry. The 5K run was held on the CSUSM track and field, in which roughly 100 students ran to get splattered with colors. Throughout the course, volunteers threw colored powder at the participating students and guests. The fundraiser was a food donation; participants brought at least two can goods
to the event. This year Campus Recreation, the nonprofit that organized the event with Mclin, along with the LGBTQA Center, collected 230 pounds. For each of the past two years they have collected at least 200 pounds of food. “This was a great way to have fun, get involved and give back to the community,” Dillon Price, an event participant, said. Usually the event gives
the canned goods to the San Diego Food Bank or the North County Food Bank, but this year’s run will be giving food to CSUSM’s food pantry, coming this fall, for hungry students. “I’m finding out that we do have some students around that are lacking in food so that’s why the whole … food pantry came about,” Mclin said. “So instead of donating outside, this year we are keeping it (at CSUSM) to help us
start out our food pantry this year.” According to DoSomething.org, one in six people in America face hunger. Also, a new report found two-thirds of community college students don’t have enough to eat and 14 percent are homeless, according to an article published by NPR. The California State University system conducted a study in February 2015 on how CSU campuses were
handling hungry students and to eventually offer help for these students. The study found “displaced students at 8.7 percent and food insecure students at 21 percent; however, preliminary student survey results from one school showed a high population (21 percent and 24percent).” In 2016, the CSU system held a conference to help students with food and housing insecurity and another is set for this year.

Community Commentary Affordable housing — Let’s try something different and better By Robert Hemphill
“Affordable housing” is a difficult social and economic problem. Many of us lucky enough to live in Encinitas would in theory like “affordable housing” to exist so that our grandparents and our children would have some inexpensive place to live. But no one wants more density next door. The last attempt at an affordable housing policy to meet state law, “Measure T” on the ballot, was a significant failure. 18,000 people voted it
down. And this was after 150 community meetings, much analysis and a 232page thick education document sent to all voters. Why? It was too complicated, it wasn’t explained well, and it attempted to do too much. But its major flaw was the optional zoning that was proposed, called “At Home in Encinitas.” The 15 sites selected by the Council were given the option but not the requirement of going to higher density (R-30) or staying with their current zoning.
This probably seemed like a clever solution when formulated, and respectful to existing property owners, but it was not a good idea. One possible result included no sites converting so you got zero affordable housing. Or all the sites could upzone in which case you got about 3,000 units, far more than the 1093 required. There was no way to control the outcome between these two extremes. Here’s a different way TURN TO COMMENTARY ON 16

Real estate prices driving moves from the state California Focus By Thomas D. Elias
f you’re a millennial, now aged 18 to 35, there’s a good chance the only major city in California you’re very much interested in moving to is San Francisco. That’s because it’s largely walkable, with plenty of amenities like singles bars and gorgeous parks. And also a lot of high-paying, hightech jobs if you qualify. Millenials may be willing to double- and triple-up so they can live where they like despite high rents, but that same cost factor is driving an unprecedented share of them away from California, says a new study from the Apartment List website (apartmentlist.com/rentonomics/millennial-population-trends/). When they get ready to buy, those same millennials are forced out of high-priced cities like San Francisco, Santa Barbara and the coastal parts of Los Angeles, adds the CoreLogic data analysis firm (corelogic.com/ blog/authors/archana-pradha n / 2 016 / 11 / where -a re households-in-high-cost-markets-buying-homes.aspx#. WDx2TVwl3mc). This scene is not unique to California’s higher-priced cities, but also occurs in New York, Chicago’s tonier areas, Boston and Washington, D.C. But it could lead to serious problems for California companies wanting to hire or retain the brightest members of the young-adult generation. In San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, where prices have skied in the last three years, 50 out of every 100 households that apply for new home mortgages are buying in nearby counties like Alameda and Contra Costa, where prices are significantly lower.
Contra Costa’s median sales price over the last year, for example, was less than half San Francisco’s for comparable properties. Now this problem is spreading to nearby Alameda County, home to cities like Oakland and Berkeley, where 34 percent of home loan applications are for areas even farther from the Bay Area’s urban core. In Los Angeles, meanwhile, the millennial population decreased by 7.4 percent between 2005 and 2015, with many 18-to-35s decamping to places like Austin, Texas, Charlotte, N.C., and Houston. The technology industry is strong in those places, but real estate prices and rents are half or less than for comparable properties in the most trendy parts of Los Angeles. Overall, says CoreLogic, home prices were up 71 percent in California in that time, with the median statewide home price in mid-2016 reaching $428,000. There is no backlash yet, mostly because of foreign buyers, who tend to be among their countries’ affluent, seeking a safe place to invest their riches. The leading buyers of this type have lately been mainland Chinese. “This makes it harder for the average person to make a living (in California),” said Sam Khater, a CoreLogic economist. “That means less teachers, fire fighters, retail workers and more. It’s causing the entire state to be more expensive.” Or, as a Silicon Valley executive complained earlier this year, “I pay some of my people with master’s degrees $70,000 and $80,000 a year and they still have no hope of buying a house anywhere near where they work.” Some locales are trying to compensate for this by subsidizing teacher housing, from kindergarten to the
college level. For sure, real estate prices are a recruiting barrier when companies and schools seek to hire top talent from places like Texas and Arizona, where median home prices are barely half California’s level. Some places are trying to solve the problem with affordable housing, generally apartments or condominium units that builders are required to include in new developments along with market-rate housing. This kind of affordable property usually bears a resale price limit, with city and school employees often getting priority on the long waiting lists for them. But those same new developments, when placed in already crowded urban areas, add to traffic volume which is not notably reduced even by new public transit that has opened in parts of Los Angeles and other areas. It’s a real quandary for California: The state needs talented young workers to fuel its innovative industries, but even those who earn more than $200,000 yearly have difficulty qualifying for mortgages on homes selling for more than $1 million, increasingly common in this state. But acting to artificially reduce real estate prices would impact the resources of millions of Californians who have lived here for a generation or two. So far, there is no answer to this dilemma, which sees more and more companies forced to open satellite facilities in more affordable states.

The feel of Del Mar Sheriff or No Sheriff, that is the question! Will Del Mar survive this? Do we appreciate the “feel of Del Mar” under our Sheriff, or shall we become more of a police state and create our own Del Mar Police Force? This is a very important issue and the future “feel of Del Mar” is in question. Under the Police Force plan, there would be an increase in our 55-person staff by about 30 percent (19 police personnel with a Chief of Police). A Holding Tank would have to be constructed, as required. Where? At our new City Hall? I hope not. They estimate the start-up costs between $2,000,000 and $3.5 million. That’s just to buy the cars and equipment. Where would they be parked? Where should the new Police Headquarters be located? Again, not at our new City Hall, I hope. If they do, will the neighbors complain? All over town, with a Police Force, the feel of Del Mar would certainly be much different. Do we want to give that up? I’m for sticking with our Sheriff.

North County continues to shine in San Marcos By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS —A large mixed-used development that proponents see potentially as the North County equivalent of San Diego’s Liberty Station neighborhood took a big step forward this month. North City, an apartment-centric community just north of Cal State San Marcos, celebrated the grand opening of a massive restaurant/entertainment complex, Urge Gastropub and Common House. The 21,000-square-foot restaurant, brewery and bowling alley has arisen from the shell of a former warehouse just east of the Block C Apartments, providing the anchor for the current phase of the project, which includes the recently opened apartments and The Quad, a student-oriented apartment project that was the first piece of North City to open in 2014. City officials hailed the opening and the progress of North City, a critical component of the city’s future look and feel.
“The area is starting to become the dynamic, active area the city hoped it would be, which benefits everyone — residents, businesses and visitors,” City Manager Jack Griffin said. “It is always exciting to see a new business call San Marcos home. Urge is the kind of use we hoped for in that area and complements existing retail and dining options in the city.” Gary Levitt, a member of the development firm behind North City, Seabreeze Properties LLC, said that he’s pleased with North City’s progress and said that Urge ties the current phase together. “We’re trying to create a place worth driving off the freeway to dine and have entertainment,” Levitt said. “We don’t have many of those places between Rancho Bernardo and Oceanside. “We also wanted to create a livable place where you can live, work, raise a TURN TO NORTH CITY ON 16
Escondido schools upset over a matter of principal

By Adam Sullivan
ESCONDIDO — Tempers were high at the Escondido Board of Education meeting on April 6, as dozens of concerned parents and educators lamented decisions made in haste. The anger and frustration stems from a student fight that occurred at Rincon Middle School last month. The fight, caught on camera via a student’s phone, shows a one-sided beating. It also shows Assistant Principal Mike Brinkley standing idly by, hands in his pockets. Both the fight and Brinkley’s inaction are enough to cause frustration, but it was the Board of Education’s response that was the predominant topic at the meeting. In the wake of the fight, the board’s immediate solution was to shift the playing field. Brinkley was placed on leave and two assistant principals were brought in to fill the gap. The student responsible for the fight was suspended. But the part that really caused uproar in the meeting was the decision to send Rincon Principal Beth Crooks to Juniper Elementary and Juniper Principal Jason Wrzeski to Rincon. Several members of the community used their two

minutes to share their perspective, many criticizing both the decision and its execution. Christian Boots is the parent of a student at Juniper Elementary. “I don’t understand how you think that’s a reasonable solution,” Boots said to the board. “On top of that, the communication about what was done, and how it was done, was abysmal. I literally received two letters on the same day with different information.” Juniper, which has had three principals in three years, appears to be quite fond of Wrzeski.
Parents and students alike protested in front of Juniper, following the decision. Another concerned teacher brought up the topic of reprisals, calling the language around what teachers can and cannot do ambiguous. Escondido Unified School District Superintendent Luis Rankins-Ibarra says these issues have since been discussed with teachers, in the wake of the fight. “We had administrators lead a conversation about what to do in the event of a fight on the TURN TO SCHOOL BOARD ON 16

Eugene C. Eagles, Born 22 October 1931, in Kansas City Missouri, died on 28 February in Chula Vista CA. Eugene was the last of a direct line, the nephew of famous 1920’s actress, Jeanne Eagles. George Eagles, Eugene’s father, was the brother of Jeanne. After George’s death, Eugene’s Mother, Virginia, married F. John Fox, a Navy man, then began his young life. The family, moving because of Navy orders, lived in several cities, and a tour in the Philippines. Returning to the US, he attended and graduated from the Pasadena Playhouse, Pasadena, California.

Total retirement brought him back to Carlsbad, where he assisted the folks at Fox’s Snug Harbor. He, and his sister, Marilyn Fox Halder, and her husband, Rear Admiral, (Retired) Robert Halder, made plans to live in Italy.

ing for ways to manage and live with the disease. They help newly diagnosed kids learn to cope with the disease. They have their own blog. The family helps raise thousands of dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. “It has been stressful for me because I have my friends, my school plus diabetes,” said Parker, a fifth grader at La Costa Heights Elementary. “But because I have had it for a while, I feel like I can share my story and teach other people about diabetes.” Madison concurred. “They understand what I am feeling, and it makes me feel really happy inside,” Madison said when asked how she felt when she is able to tell people about her life and the disease. “Without diabetes, I wasn’t that type of kid.” Jen Poston, their mother, said she is amazed at how her children have embraced this role in the Type 1 Diabetes community “We have made it clear that it doesn’t define them, that they are a child first who has Type 1 Diabetes and that is so critically important,” Jen Poston said. “But being that voice has allowed them to be in the community and be in schoolCROP and has given them .93 the opportunity to educate .93peers.” ... their 4.17family has also beThe come 4.28 passionate advocates of the Dexcom monitoring device, which continuously monitors their glucose levels and sends readings to their parents on their smartphones or watches via an app. The device, Jen Poston said, allows Madison to play soccer or Parker to participate in parkour without the stress of worrying about sudden drops in their blood sugar. “It has given them more freedom,” Jen Poston said. “It keeps us as parents much more on top of their blood sugars whereas before we were flying blind without knowing technically where they were. “As long as they are under our house or until they are 18, they are wearing the Dexcom,” she said. “And I strongly believe a child diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes should not leave the hospital without one.” The device hasn’t been a panacea: replacing the
sensor weekly requires sometimes painful needle pricks, and monitoring the blood sugar levels doesn’t mean they won’t drop, making sleepovers difficult. And while they are able to do certain things, Jen Poston said it does require more planning and more caution than if they didn’t suffer from the disease. “They don’t complain about Dexcom or their pump, but they have complained about being different, and it’s not really complaining as it is tears and sadness and mourning,” Jen Poston said. “Madison was too young to remember what life was like before her diagnosis, but Parker remembers. “It is a lot of anxiety when it is time to change the machines...and it does hurt,” she said. “It is a very silent disease. People will come up to us and say, “Oh, your children look so good, they look healthy,” but little did they know about the five times they were up at night for blood checks, or their sensor failed, the tears and the crying. People don’t see any of that.” Still, the brother and sister are able to live their lives and help other children and adults to understand the disease. They are members of an ambassador program for the makers of the device called Dexcom Warriors, a community that includes singer Nick Jonas and San Diego Ninja Warrior Kyle Cochran, one of Parker’s favorite warriors. But Jen Poston said having Parker and Madison as role models is critical for other kids newly diagnosed or struggling with their diagnosis. “I think it is important for other kids to look at other kids,” mom said. Jen said that community has been invaluable for her family too. “My family has been very supportive, but they don’t get it,” she said. “Only another individual or family with Type 1 gets what you have been through. That is our tribe.” But like many families who cope with the disease with their children, Jen said if she had one wish, it would be simple. “Without hesitation, a cure,” she said. “And if there wasn’t a cure, I wish I could take it from them.”

Interfaith, Carlsbad open doors to people in need I’m old enough to know better By Adam Sullivan
CARLSBAD — Interfaith Community Services and the city of Carlsbad have turned a $600,000 federal grant from the Community Development Block Grant program into a brand-new service center in an effort to help stabilize people in need. The center, which is located at 5731 Palmer Way, held its debut open-house event on April 6. One of the issues Interfaith is up against is homelessness, and San Diego has one of the largest homeless populations in the country. It was ranked 12th highest metro area in 2007, and jumped up to fourth in 2015, according to federal data. Fortunately, organizations like Interfaith Community Services are working to combat this issue. Director Greg Anglea is leading the charge. “We’re helping individuals with employment, food, access to housing and what we call ‘self-sufficiency services,’” he said. “So it’s helping people to improve their situation financially, and get to a point where they don’t need any assistance to make ends meet.” Prior to the new service center, Interfaith managed the previous Carlsbad location, which was little more than a hiring hall trailer — undersized, understaffed and underfunded. “The space was extremely limited, and the services provided were limited to job placement, ESL classes and basic job training,” Courtney Pene, city management analyst, said. “Now that the Hiring Center has moved into a permanent facility, an expanded array of services can now be provided to … Carlsbad households.” “It was run by different nonprofits over the years,” Anglea said. “A couple years ago, Interfaith took over management of it, and expanded it from a simple hiring hall to a more robust wraparound service center.” The city of Carlsbad was appreciative, and showed its appreciation by finding funds for the new, upgraded location. “The city very graciously stepped forward to help us purchase this new, larger permanent home for our Carlsbad service center.” The new location is bigger, and more room means more of everything. The computer lab went from three workstations to an actual computer lab, and more space is available for both clients and volunteers to help them. One of the main focus areas for the center is employment. Interfaith works carefully to not only get clients jobs, but also to get them better jobs. During its previous fiscal year (in the old location), Interfaith had 798 job placements, with an average hourly wage of $13.69 — more than $2 above minimum wage. “When we first took it over, pretty much everyone was just going out for minimum wage jobs,”

Anglea said. “But a lot of the people we work with have significant skills, and so we’ve been able to help people hone and market those skills, get them equitably paid for what they’re doing.” Anglea stresses that in order to really help people, you first have to connect with them on a human level. “One of the individuals we’re working with, he’s homeless right now, staying at a local homeless shelter,” he said. “He came to us seeking temporary employment, trying to get some dollars to make ends meet, and we were able to help him find a permanent job at a tree landscaping service. He’s been doing really well there, he’s been promoted, and through support from the Carlsbad Charitable Foundation he was able to purchase some equipment, some tools for his job, and (it) helped him get the promotion that he got. Now he’s saving money and beginning to look for apartments.” It’s inspiring success stories like these that fuel all parties concerned. “Someone may come in, just looking for some food or a temporary job placement,” Angela said. “But if we sit down, and build a connection and a relationship with them, we can do a lot more.” Education is another arm of the center. Pene explained that the service center helps provide people with life skills that will help them to become self-sufficient: “The new Carlsbad Service Center will now offer services such as financial literacy classes, assistance with Cal Fresh applications, case management and basic needs services.” Another new amenity will help Interfaith provide food. “At this new center we also have a walk-in refrigerator and a walk-in freezer,” Anglea said. “So we’re able to provide perishables, proteins, vegetables, fruits and all that good stuff that we weren’t able to do at the old center.” Interfaith may not
hand out hot meals like other resources (Brother Benno’s, in Oceanside, offers both sack lunch-style and hot meals six days a week), but they do operate on an “emergency grocery system,” where they can assist someone with food up to six times a year. Access to housing is the third branch of service provided by Interfaith, which
includes emergency, transitional and permanent places to stay. Anglea is both modest and proud of Interfaith’s many accomplishments, and said the Interfaith team does a lot with a little. He suggests that anyone interested in volunteering check out the website at interfaith.org, to see all open volunteer positions.

Since they were down, might as well launder them. The new furniture arrangement cried out for additional smaller pieces to be dusted and dragged here and there. Then I remembered I had the right color paint in the garage, and proceeded to freshen up the dinged and newly exposed wall area. After cleaning paint drips from floor, couch and my hair, I now had a fair-sized pile of dirty towels to add to the laundry. Finally, tchotchkes got redistributed, packed away and or just tossed. Do not mistake this recount for complaining. I loved every dust-laden minute. I find this sort of overhaul divinely therapeutic. It’s just that I still underestimate the dozens of small bits that always surface when you move the big bits. Four hours later, I stood back and gave a happy sigh. Even my husband liked the new arrangement. I will continue to enjoy our on-shore breeze, making the air fresh as sparkling wine. I will also continue to fight the mildew it brings on the leather couch, wood and walls. Hey, I’ve got 10 minutes to spare. I think I’ll rearrange the guest room.
pring cleaning, or housework of any sort is not something I plan on. It tends to sneak in when I plan something far less industrious. The last day of my spring break, I decided to just rearrange the living room furniture. As one does, one night at 3 a.m., I had planned it out very simply in my head. Just push the sideboard down, take the decorative mirrors down, put the couch by the windows and the chairs where the couch had been. Shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes, tops. I really am old enough to know better. Where I took down the mirrors, I left a dartboard of nail holes. Behind the sideboard, I discovered oceanbreeze-fed mildew, and, of course, spider central. A good scrubdown was in order. Bleach spray truly is my friend.

lage. I just learned about the inaugural Spring Shop Hop this weekend, April 22, which will highlight the dozens of restaurants and retailers in the village. With the longer, warmer evenings, I’ve been noticing so many great boutiques there. Event participants can pick up business directories at a welcome table at the fountain corner located on State and Grand starting at 4 p.m.; discounts and prize giveaways are “in store” for shoppers. In early May, some exciting soccer action is coming to the village. The SoCal Surf will play their season home opener against the San Diego Zest May 6 at 6 p.m. at the Army Navy Academy Sports Complex, on 2600 Carlsbad Boulevard. This minor league soccer team is going places — be sure to check out their Carlsbad home games. Maybe grab drinks and dinner in the village before the game starts?
The following day, America’s largest one-day street fair will return to the village. The Carlsbad Village Faire is scheduled for May 7, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; more than 900 vendors will be participating this year, offering a wide variety of food, retail goods and unique business services. There are even children’s games and rides. I’ve had a great time at the Village Faire every time I’ve attended, but plan ahead! Parking and traffic will be tough. Carlsbad Village is my favorite North County downtown, but it’s not the only one. Vista Village is also making strides in event programming and economic development — I missed a really fun BBQ event last year, and some great storefronts have opened for business recently. Luckily I haven’t missed the San Diego Brewers Guild’s Rhythm & Brews beer festival in Vista Village, scheduled for May 6. General admission is 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. I still need to explore and learn more about the rest of North County’s villages and commercial cores. Escondido and Oceanside have larger, older downtown areas that are following their own strategies for growth and investment. The city of San Marcos has been hard at work creating a downtown area of its own. Who doesn’t like an intimate, small-town feel? Main Street USA is alive and well in North County. Support your local village — there’s lots of good small business owners and fun events planned this year. You’ll be glad you did. Vince Vasquez is a data analyst based in Torrey Pines.

Pinot Pleasure: What’s in your cooler? taste of wine frank mangio
es, it’s another column romancing the virtues of the most exotic red wine of them all, Pinot Noir. If I asked for a count of Pinots in your cooler, how many would I see? My bet would be very few. Not that Pinot Noir isn’t doing well in the marketplace … it is! It’s just that when it is purchased, it’s not laid down in a cooler for a few years like some other reds, it is consumed. It goes so well with such a variety of meals, and tastes so wonderful as soon as the cork is popped, there is no need to wait for another day. It has been called “the Queen of Red Wines,” and a grape of perfumed aroma and delicate finesse. It bears the genetics of old world French Burgundy, and is one of the basic grapes used in the making of Champagne (the other is Chardonnay.) Pinot Noir is not a forgiving grape. It is a finicky grape and is grown and

harvested successfully in only a select number of wine countries, which does not include any south and east of San Luis Obispo in the Central Coast of California. The Oregon coast does well as it’s on the same global path as Burgundy in France. The wine is low in tannin and silky to the taste, which makes it a favorite with most women and men who find the muscular, acidic tannins of Cabernet or Syrah too astringent. A recent Friday night tasting at Meritage Wine Market in Encinitas with Nathan Sneller, who has a grip on favored Pinot Noir, found seven selections to

taste. There were three from Oregon and four from California, a fair balance. My favorite of the group was the 2014 Tyler “Old Vine” Pinot from the famed Bien Nacido Ranch from Lompoc in the Central Coast of California. ($67.) Old vines are those 30 years or more and provide rich concentration to the taste of the wine. Sneller revealed that, “Pinot Noir on a price basis is Meritage’s top seller. We sell a lot of it to younger wine lovers who enjoy pairing it with a wide range of foods. It has less alcohol and its flavor is locked into an exotic style.” Check out other wine tastings at meritagewinemarket.com. Doug Wiens on sugar in wine Doug Wiens, the successful winemaker at Wiens Family Cellars in Temecula, recently wrote an article on wine and sugar content in his newsletter that I thought I’d share with you. In it he states that all wine contains sugar. In dry reds it usually is
quite low. Dessert wines, he reports, are high on sugar, at times 10 to 20 percent sugar. There is not much in the way of sugar standards in wine here in the U.S. In Europe they have controlled standards that are measured and are lower than the U.S. percentages. In California, all sugar comes from grapes themselves. Winemakers can manage this sugar, some of which gets consumed by yeast during the fermentation process (conversion of sugar to alcohol). Wine grapes are sweet, usually 18 to 25 percent sugar when harvested. Residual sugar is the term used for that amount of sugar left when the wine is bottled. The higher the alcohol level, the sweeter the wine, like in Port wine. The winemaker may adjust the residual sugar through techniques to smooth out and soften the acidity, especially for consuming at a wine’s younger age. We have condensed TURN TO TASTE OF WINE ON 16

provides a great view of the parade going north and south on Coast Highway and the occasional passing train. I visited recently to check out their new Friday evening dinner service and really enjoyed sitting
outside. For those of you unfamiliar with Haggo’s, I should point out that this is no ordinary taco shop. Tacos are on the menu, but this is a chef-driven endeavor and there is much more going on here. First off, 98 percent of what they serve is organic with much
of it sourced locally, which plays a big factor in the quality of ingredients. This was Haggo’s mantra long before the farm to table and organic movement became a trend, it’s just the way he operates. I’ve said this many times before but it’s worth repeating. Chefs, especially those with a European or rural background, have been sourcing locally when possible since long before it became a culinary marketing buzzword and with little fanfare. Prior to opening Haggo’s, chef/ owner Haggard was a 15year food and beverage veteran with the majority of that time spent at Rancho Valencia. He has resided in Encinitas for the past 20 years and definitely has a pulse on the local vibe, and this new location is definitely a reflection on the changing face of Leucadia. As far as the food goes, the quality is on par with if not better than what Haggard has been putting out all along. Quality ingredients in the hands of a talented chef go a long way. I started a meal out recently with a ginger carrot soup that was a perfect way to begin the meal. There were several dinner options on the board along with the full menu. An example of the quality differentiator at Haggo’s would be the Nautilus Plate. It’s a sautéed seasoned local catch of the day on a bed of organic red inca quinoa and seasonal veggies with
will admit up front that I was very bummed a couple years back when Haggo’s moved out of their quaint, funky space straight out of a Wes Anderson movie where The Lanai now resides. It captured the essence of Leucadia at the time and combined with the stellar food they put out became a go-to spot for me. But hey, the times they are a changing and quaint and funky does not cut it for a restaurateur trying to keep up with increasing demand in cramped quarters with limited refrigeration. Chef and owner James Haggard had limited growth potential in that spot so when the space Dos Palmas occupied became available, he jumped on it. That’s where my initial concern began, as the new building could not have been more different than his original location. Its modern lines did not necessarily exude the warmth and charm that was so much a part of the original Haggo’s experience. That said, it definitely provided a challenge for Haggard to transform the space and make it his own. Based on a couple of recent visits, I’d say he accomplished that nicely. The lighting, seating, art and fixtures all combine to make the space work. The odes to Wes Anderson and Jacques Cousteau still exist, yet in a manner that is contemporary yet still maintains its distinct personality. They have carved out a cool little bar area and another room feels more like a warmly lit library. The soundtrack is as eclectic as one would expect from Haggo’s and is one of the better restaurant mixes around. Outdoor seating is largely unchanged and

Vista Academy of Visual & Performing Arts second-grader Chelsea De Los Santos begins a drive to donate toys to the sick children at Rady Children’s Hospital, starting with her birthday presents. Courtesy
Vista youngster shares her birthday By Ray Huard
VISTA — Second-grader Chelsea De Los Santos won’t have a birthday party this year when she turns 9. She won’t get any presents either. “For my birthday, instead of getting gifts for myself, I’m going to donate toys to the sick children at Rady Children’s Hospital,” Chelsea said, in a talk she gave to her schoolmates at Vista Academy of Visual & Performing Arts (VAPA) in the Vista Unified School District. So far, Chelsea has collected more than 100 toys, everything from dolls to coloring books, said her mom, Cristina De Los Santos. “My living room and dining room are full,” De Los Santos said. And Chelsea’s not finished. “I want to collect more toys,” she said, standing outside her classroom. Her mom said that Chelsea would like to collect enough toys so that every child in the hospital will get one. Chelsea’s adding her own contribution, using part of her $5 weekly allowance to buy coloring books and board games to include in the toy drive She came up with the idea of a toy drive on her own, one night in January, when she and her mother started talking about what Chelsea might want for her birthday, April 20. “Every year, we have a party for her, usually two parties, one for friends and one for relatives,” De Los Santos said. This year, Chelsea had other ideas. “I’ve already had lots of birthday parties,” Chelsea said. “I already have lots of toys.” When Chelsea said that she wanted to collect toys for children in a hospital, “It just caught me by surprise,” her mom said. To be sure, her mother asked Chelsea, over several days in January, if she really wanted to give up her party and gifts. “She was very, very insistent,” De Los Santos said. Soon after Chelsea announced her plans and started collecting toys, her teacher, Denise Shaver, gave the
T he C oast News - I nland E dition
class a writing assignment asking students, “If you could do anything to make a difference in the community, what would you do?” Chelsea wrote about collecting toys for sick children, and the essay prompted De Los Santos to think about expanding Chelsea’s toy drive. “I thought, maybe I should email Mrs. Shaver, letting her know we’re already doing this, asking if she wanted to get the class involved,” De Los Santos said. Shaver loved the idea. Not only did Shaver’s class take up Chelsea’s toy drive, but it went schoolwide, with Chelsea taking one day to make presentations to other classrooms with a simple plea – “Please help me bring happiness, hope and share a smile to the sick children at Rady Children’s Hospital.” “She did it all herself, I’m so proud of her,” Shaver said, adding, “Chelsea’s a wonderful student. She’s one of the top students.” Hospital Media Relations Officer Carlos Delgado said others interested in forming a toy drive like Chelsea’s or donating to the hospital can contact Rady’s Children Foundation at (858) 966-4015. Smiling shyly, Chelsea said, “I don’t know how I thought of it,” although her family has a history of helping others. When Chelsea’s 26-year-old sister, Sarah, was Chelsea’s age, the family would hand out boxes of food in their native Philippines, De Los Santos said. Giving to others is an important value in their family. “It’s better to give than to receive,” De Los Santos said. “It opens your heart to everyone.” In addition to the toy drive, Chelsea sold 425 boxes of cookies as a Brownie in Vista Girl Scout Troop 1925. She’s also a member of Vista Voices choir, the Music Conservatory at VAPA, and performed in two musicals through the school’s Drama Conservatory. Chelsea’s not sure why people are impressed by her toy drive. “Really, anyone can do it, any kid,” Chelsea said.

Mastering the art of traveling with these new gadgets hit the road e’louise ondash
he art of travel changes constantly with the introduction of new products that make getting there easier, more fun and convenient, and maybe even cheaper. New gadgets let us take our creature comforts with us and can make traveling with children less stressful. Speaking of which… There was a time not so long ago when, if you were under 3 feet tall, you didn’t go anywhere beyond the back yard or grandma’s house, but today, babies and toddlers seem to go everywhere. A couple of new products make taking along baby not so difficult.
The first is ciao! baby Portable High Chair (for kids up to 3
years old; theportablehighchair. com; $68.) The high chair, an engineering marvel, opens with a couple of easy motions. It’s constructed of sturdy canvas and is ideal for travel, camping (I would have loved this when my kids were young). It’s also ideal for the grandparents’ home because the chair folds easily and takes little storage space. Comes in a multitude of college team colors and logos, too ($99). The second parent-helper is the Baby Change-N-Go (babycha ngengo.com; $ 9 9 ) , w h i c h was born of the frustration that c o m e s with the lack of diaper changing facilities or facilities that are downr i g h t filthy. This system, with plenty of pockets for accessories and extra clothing, hangs on the bathroom stall door or wall. It folds up to fit in the stroller, diaper bag or backpack. Long flights or car trips sometimes require diversion for kids as well as adults. You can make sharing one tablet, phone or laptop easy with loveBuds (mylovebuds. com; $25.49), which can be used with any device that has a regular audio jack (3.5 millimeters). The
ultralight earbuds come in metallic gunmetal on one side; pink on the other. Each side has its own volume control, and it comes with extra bud covers of three sizes. Should you choose to share your music at the beach with a bottle of wine, don’t worry about having to transport breakable wine glasses. Flexible, durable
and colorful, Bendiware glasses (bendiware.com; set of four $25) are fun and negate the need for disposables (hooray!). If that weren’t enough, the 100 percent BPA-free silicone glasses are foldable so you can stow them in your backpack or bag. They won’t freeze, crack or shatter, so they are safe to put in the freezer or dishwasher. N e e d something to sit on at the beach? The Parasheet from G r a n d T r u n k (grandtrunk.com; $40) is just the thing. The 7-foot-square blanket,
constructed of ultra-lightweight, quick-drying parachute nylon, has sand pockets in the corners to make it easy to anchor, and loops for those sit uations that call for stakes. (Stakes not i nc luded.) Parasheet comes in several color combinations and the entire thing compresses into a small, attached stuff-sack, so it takes up little space. While you’re enjoying the beach, do you need insect repellent, sunscreen, breath freshener or sanitizer? These are all available from MiiSTS (miists.com), which has figured out how to dispense these liquids in flat, pocket-sized spray cont a i ners that make it easy to carry a variety of first-aid and beauty needs when you travel. MiiSTS also offers tiny spray dispensers that contain bite and bug relief, stain remover, lens and screen cleaner, zero-calorie sweetener, wrinkle-releaser and hairspray.

Students go green to celebrate Earth Day VISTA — For Earth Day week, students at Vista’s Monte Vista Elementary School celebrated a months-long program to educate their peers about energy efficiency. Students prepared and delivered presentations on smart energy use to their classmates and formed a group that identifies ways of saving energy called the “Volt Patrol.” The students were the recipients April 19 of a power-generating “Green Bike” from VUSD partner, Schneider Electric. These initiatives are the culmination of the “Conserve My Planet” curriculum developed in partnership with Schneider. The school unveiled the bicycle, which monitors the energy it creates
when pedaling the bike, giving riders a firsthand look at how power is generated. Students in Annjanette Ziegler’s third-grade class visited multiple classrooms, sharing PowerPoint presentations. All students got to try a home energy audit, to continue their energy education at home with their families. “‘Conserve My Planet’ is a fantastic addition to our school’s ‘Leader in Me’ initiative, which is designed to help students take control of their own learning,” said Monte Vista Elementary Principal Charlene Smith. “Kids are capable of so much, and our team works to give them the tools, direction and inspiration to discover just how much they can achieve.”
Explore San Dieguito River Valley REGION — The San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy has opened enrollment for its 2017 “Exploring Our Sense of Place” program, which will close Aug. 10. Participants, or “explorers,” will experience the San Dieguito River Valley and watershed in all seasons. The first visit is from Volcan Mountain in Julian, heading west to North Beach in Del Mar. Hikers will learn about the area’s history, geology,
native inhabitants, plants, and wildlife. Many of the excursions include areas that are not open to the public. The enrollment fee is $250 per person or $450 for a couple. Register at exploringoursenseofplace. org. Eight excursions are held monthly from September through May, including a welcome reception at the Del Mar Powerhouse and seven outings with experts in a variety of topics.
ne of the best defenses against the growing threat of osteoarthritis as you age is simply to outrun your aches and pains. While this strategy doesn’t seem intuitive to everyone, the fact is that a balanced approach to physical activity decreases pain, improves joint function and quality of life, improves your mood, and helps manage other chronic health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Plus, it doesn’t have to consume the bulk of your time and attention, either. “Exercise is a major factor in healthy joints,” said Dr. Andrew Hartman, an orthopedic surgeon affiliated with Tri-City Medical Center. “Spending just two and a half hours of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per week or one hour and 15 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity every week will set up a healthful defense around the perimeter of your body.” Making time to exercise is important and there are ways to ensure you are set up for success along the way. What Exercises Should I Do? Aerobic activity is anything that will make your heart beat faster and breathe a little harder than when you are resting. To start with, some good low-impact activities to pick from include brisk walking, water aerobics, gardening, dancing, and group exercises. If you want to take it up a notch, some examples of moderate-intensity activities are brisk walking, bicycling, swimming, mowing the grass or heavy yard work, doubles tennis, social dancing, hiking, tai chi or yoga, and sports like softball, baseball, volleyball, skiing, roller skating, and ice skating. If you can still talk comfortably but can’t sing, you’re on the right track. For the more ambitious, a vigorous-intensity activity means finding something you can do where you find yourself unable to sing or talk comfortably without stopping. Some of these exercises include jogging, running, singles tennis, jumping rope, and sports like soccer, basketball, racquetball, aerobic dance, or spinning classes. Don’t Pick Just One To maximize the benefits to your body, choose a variety of different exercises each time you exercise, and remember that any physical activity is better than none. Try to exercise in addition to doing your other daily activities; it doesn’t have to be all at once. If you prefer, you can break up your exercise time into smaller increments throughout the day. Moderate,
low-impact exercises are the safest, but more health benefits are gained with more exercise. In general, the benefits of exercise outweigh the risks. Also attempt to mix in some muscle strengthening using weights, resistance bands, or calisthenics. An ideal regimen should work all the major muscle groups of the body - legs, hips, back, chest, abdomen, shoulders, and arms - and it should be performed two or more days per week. Dr. Hartman agrees, “Incorporating resistance and strength exercises into your fitness routine supports the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the body. An increase in muscle strength leads to better protection and shock absorption abilities of the muscles surrounding your joints.” For people who are at risk of falling, balance exercises are another important component. Some examples of balance exercises are walking backwards, standing on one foot, and tai chi. Exercise SMART Our doctors recommend the SMART approach to an exercise routine: Start low and go slow. Modify activity when arthritis symptoms increase, but try to remain active. Activities should be joint friendly. Recognize safe places and ways to be active. Talk to a health professional or certified exercise specialist about the proper exercises for you. When the Pain Sets In Pay close attention to the feedback your body is giving you while exercising and make appropriate adjustments to avoid excess pain and unnecessary injuries. And while some soreness or aching from exercise is normal for the first four to six weeks, and the good news is it should lessen
over time. If you experience pain after establishing an exercise regimen, here are the most common tips: Decrease the duration and frequency of your workout, modify the types of activities you are performing, warm up before and cool down after your workout, exercise at a comfortable pace – one where you should be able to talk, and wear good-fitting, comfortable shoes. “Reducing joint pain after exercise is important to ensure proper healing of the tendons and ligaments of the joints,” said Dr. Hartman. “One way to help reduce pain is to apply a towel-wrapped ice pack for no more than 20 minutes at a time, three to four times per day.” Any soreness that lasts longer than 48 hours means you need to take it easier next time you exercise. That pain may be telling you that you’ve overstressed your joints, muscles, or tendons, and working through it may lead to injury or damage. You’d better call your doctor if the pain exhibits any of these warning signs: It becomes sharp, stabbing, or constant; it causes limping; it lasts more than two hours or worsens at night; it is not relieved by rest, medications, or hot or cold packs; you observe large increases in swelling, redness, or warmth; or the joint feels hot. In the end, a balanced and consistent exercise plan is one of the most beneficial treatm e n t s for your progressing osteoarthritis condition. Plan a little exercise into your daily life and outrun your aches and pains. Dr. Andrew Hartman is an orthopedic surgeon affiliated with Tri-City Medical Center.

were residential only, however. Critics, like Rigby, said developers were taking advantage of what was intended to be mixed-use, to build denser residential projects with lower
standards than would be required in other parts of the city, in what came to be known as the “mixeduse loophole.” The new rules affect these residential-only projects, applying the same rules that apply in other residential areas. Projects that include
commercial space would not be subject to the new rules. The council also chose not to apply these new rules along North Santa Fe Drive, and created an “overlay zone” with four story buildings (compared with three stories in other parts of the city),
setback 10 feet from the street and other buildings (compared with up to 20 feet), with nearly half as many parking spaces required for apartments. The decision came 4-1, with Rigby ultimately opposing the lower standards along North Santa Fe Drive.

than 60 percent occupied, which he finds validating. “It shows that people like living in this type of building, if you have great architecture and create places with great design, people will follow,” he said. The next phase of the project, which is already under construction, is the Pima Medical Institute building, which signed a 15-year lease to occupy 40,000 square feet
of the building being built north of the Block C and visible from state Route 78. Block K, another high-density apartment complex is in the building plan check phase. Following those developments, Levitt said, are ambitious plans for the area immediately west of The Quad, which include a future Cal State San Marcos Administrative and classroom build-
ing, and potentially other retail, hotel and office spaces surrounding it. Levitt said that while in parts of North County, a project like North City might not be compatible, but he calls the area surrounding Cal State San Marcos ideal for denser, mixed-use model that has failed elsewhere. “I pose the question, ‘If not here, where,’” Levitt said.

School safety has been a hot-button issue across the United States for the past several years. Even a casual glance at Rincon Middle shows they are aware, and acknowledging the issue.

brought to light that teachers and administrators should be properly trained to deal with situations like student fights, and the clearer the language, the better. While unable to comment on the suspended student, the assistant principal’s leave or the shift in personnel, Superintendent Rankins-Ibarra has released the following statement: “The Escondido Union School District is committed to a safe and respectful environment where all students have the opportunity to learn and achieve. EUSD does not condone altercations
or other forms of violence among students, staff, or other members of the EUSD community. Our district mandates training for all of our administrators in appropriate and lawful techniques for de-escalating situations to prevent dangerous behavior. Administrative staff is definitely taught to intervene if there is an immediate threat to student or staff safety. The safety and educational achievement of our students will continue to be our highest priority.” The next Board of Education meeting is scheduled for April 27.

Tacos are represented, of course, with fish, beef and veggie options either as a combo plate or a la carte. The plates come with two tacos and organic corn tortillas beans and rice. One of my favorite burritos is the Ron Burgundy. It’s made up of cit-
rus soy marinated grassfed beef, sautéed corn, poblano, onion, heirloom red cabbage slaw and fresh herbs. It’s served with a cumin-lime crema and rice and beans. I really love this burrito. The $7-$12 price points are well worth it considering the quality of ingredi-
ents. There are kid options as well and a list of sides for you to mix and match. Beer is a new addition along with Kombucha and all the beverages are organic as well. Overall, I’m a big fan of the new space and the food is better than ever. I’m stoked that they have
been able to grow while maintaining their unique appeal. Haggo’s is located at 1302 N. Coast Highway 101, in Encinitas. Call (760) 753-6000 or visit haggosorganictaco.com.

expressed concern that the bill proposes to shift voting power away from North County San Diego. “This bill specifically disenfranchises most of North County,” he says. “As far as I’m concerned, this is a power grab for Chula Vista. It basically disenfranchises the corridors. I don’t think this can be amended.” Seated next to him, Supervisor Greg Cox from District 1 (along San Diego County’s southern border) also voiced opposition. “What this bill does, in my opinion, is it throws out the idea of consensus,” he said. Cox explained that under AB 805, Chula Vista and the city of San Diego can swing a vote with “just one friend.” Alternately, the city and county of San Diego would have a majority rule by themselves. “They can do whatever they damn well want, because it’s just a straight population vote,” Cox added. “That would not serve this county well, it would not serve this cog well and I don’t think it would

to get to the numbers we need for state law compliance, but no more, using an entirely different system: 1. Establish a five-year program with an annual auction for 20 percent of the units needed. Any property owner may participate as a bidder. 2. Each interested owner bids a dollar amount for converting his property to R-30. The bids are opened publicly and the winners declared. Contingent bids are not allowed. 3. The City may select or reject bids for any reason. Any shortfall is added to the next year’s auction. Any over-selection reduces the target for the following year. 4. Fees collected are distributed equally to each voter living within a quarter mile of the site selected. The City does not keep the fees. 5. The site upzoning is valid for five years. If a site is not developed as bid in five years, it reverts to the original zoning, loses its investment, and the shortfall is added to the subsequent year’s auction. 6. Prop A is amended to
serve local government well.” Rivera responded to criticism. “This bill is not designed to take away the voice of the smaller cities, it’s simply designed to give greater proportional representation to all residents in this county,” he said. Under AB 805’s proposed redistribution of votes, Escondido is the only region that would lose a full vote. This sticking point in particular prompted Escondido Abed to host a press conference to voice his opposition: “(Rivera’s) just trying to deceive 18 mayors. He’s saying we aren’t going to disenfranchise. They are giving San Diego council members 42 votes, and Chula Vista eight, to make 50 percent of the votes. That is what’s wrong with the bill. If it passed we would lose the tally vote and lose the weighted vote.” The board meeting concluded with a vote of 17-2 (with two absentees) on a motion to oppose until (and unless) there are amendments. The board has declared they are amenable to discussions with Assemblywoman Gonzalez Fletcher.
allow for this auction system. 7. The actual development of the rezoned properties must comply with all existing codes and approval processes. Why is this better? 1. The market selects the best sites, not city planners. Local political influence doesn’t matter. 2. Only 1093 units are upzoned. We get what we need to comply, and no more. No “buffer” is required. 3. The selected sites will probably get built since there’s money at stake, so we actually get some affordable housing. 4. Local neighbors may not like the idea of more density nearby, but receiving a share of the payment should quell some of this unhappiness. Similar auction systems have been used in electric utility pollution control, very successfully, over the last 25 years. Maybe it’s time to try an equivalent approach on affordable housing.

Chicago-based rock band Ne-Hi performs at The Hideout in San Diego April 28. Courtesy photo
Ne-Hi gaining momentum outside of their native Chicago By Bill Forman
Back when the Sex Pistols played Manchester in 1976, their audience famously included future founders of Joy Division, The Buzzcocks, The Fall, Magazine and The Smiths. “They say everyone who was at those gigs went out and formed a band,” Johnny Rotten would later remark, “but that wasn’t our plan — or our fault!” For Chicago’s latest wave of young indie bands, a Black Lips’ show at Logan Square Auditorium may have performed similar magic, as members of Twin Peaks, The Orwells and NeHi gathered to witness the notorious Atlanta band’s combination of punk and garage-rock antics. But, of the young Chicago musicians in attendance, Ne-Hi have since shown themselves to be the least Lips-like, possibly because co-frontman Jason Balla was working the door that night. “I was making sure everyone had their tickets, rather than losing myself in the moshpit,” said the now25-year-old musician, whose tastes run more toward Krautrock acts like Neu!, post-punk bands like Wire, and the jangly pop of “Hoboken Sound” bands like The Feelies. Although Balla didn’t know his counterparts in Twin Peaks or the Orwells, his band was soon playing underground shows with them at Animal Kingdom, a now-defunct DIY space on Chicago’s north side. It was there that Balla recalls seeing one of Twin Peaks’ first gigs. “They were all in my high school, but I was a couple years older than them,” he said. “I was like, ‘Who are these guys?’ They were super-young and really good. It was kind of mind-blowing.” While Twin Peaks were the first among them to find national acclaim, Ni-Hi are beginning to catch up. The “Chicago Tribune” included both bands in its 2014 list of best Chicago indie albums, with Twin Peaks coming in at No. 1 and Ne-Hi at No. 4 (two places above legendary Nirvana producer Steve Albini’s band Shellac!). Ne-Hi has since toured with Twin Peaks, played seven showcases at this year’s South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, and signed to Grand Jury, whose roster also includes Mothers, Esme Patterson and, yes,

Twin Peaks. Ne-Hi’s sophomore album “Offers,” released this past February, finds the band advancing musically, as well. While their Krautrock leanings have yet to come to the fore, postpunk-inspired single-note guitar lines surface on many of the songs. Meanwhile, the standout “Palm of Hand” is straight out of the Feelies playbook, with Balla and Mikey Wells’ intermeshed guitar parts cascading over bassist James Weir and drummer Alex Otake’s insistent rhythms. “I love the Feelies,” said Balla, who still hasn’t reached the stage where musicians bristle at comparisons to other artists. “The cool thing about all those (Hoboken) bands, for me, is how the guitars are so unaffected and almost
awkward or broken-sounding,” he said. “They’re kind of on that edge of — I don’t know — being nonsense, but also being the best hooks ever. And I think that’s one of the things that most interests me now, too, is like finding newer and sh*****r ways to play the guitar that still sound exciting.” From a songwriting perspective, Balla says his favorite lyrics on the new album are from “Buried on the Moon,” which co-leader Wells wrote about his father, who was also a musician: “Well, come and make a record like your dear old dad / Yeah, we’ll give you all the money, then make you feel sad.” “Every time I hear it, it’s a really powerful and

Sessions began in January of last year at Chicago’s Minbal Studios, where they recorded on a ’60s-vintage Scully analog eight-track that had once been used for the Rolling Stones’ “Exile on Main Street” sessions in Muscle Shoals.
