City, county agree to settle airport lawsuit By Steve Puterski

By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — A robot police officer will soon join the ranks of the Escondido Police Department’s officer corps following a vote at the March 20 Escondido City Council meeting. The robot will be funded by an $8,550 grant given under the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI) program, a federal grant program administered by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. In the past, UASI has come under fire as a feeding trough of sorts for police departments lacking proper oversight. Escondido Police Department Chief Craig Carter made his case for the department’s need for the robot saying it would be designated for uniquely dangerous circumstances. “That robot will be used to enter into locations that are otherwise not safe for law enforcement to entire, with the goal of establishing a communication between the officers and the person that’s inside,” Carter said. “The idea of that is we go in with the robot, we establish that communication and it keeps us from having to go into a situation where it might be a life or death situation.” In response to Carter’s presentation, Deputy Mayor and Councilwoman

CARLSBAD — An agreement between the city of Carlsbad and county of San Diego announced on March 27 puts to bed a lawsuit regarding the environmental impact report over the McClellan-Palomar Airport Master Plan. The San Diego County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the plan on Oct. 10, 2018, which reclassified the airport from a B-II to a D-III to handle larger jets, repositioned the taxiway and runway and also lengthened the runway by up to 800 feet. On March 27, the City Council voted to approve the settlement 4-1, with Councilwoman Cori Schumacher voting no. The council discussed the settlement for three-and-a-half hours in a closed session before announcing a deal had been reached. However, the resident

We look forward to collaborating with the city and implementing the Master Plan to enhance airport operations in the future.” Also, the county did not respond to an email request for comment by deadline.

REGION — U.S. Rep. Mike Levin (D-San Juan Capistrano) along with several other members of Congress want to expedite the removal of spent nuclear fuel from San Onofre and other decommissioning nuclear plants across the country. Levin and 14 other congress members sent a letter to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water De-

velopment urging them to fund activities that will speed up removing spent nuclear fuel from decommissioning plants like the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS). Currently, spent nuclear fuel is stored in a facility on the SONGS site, which has been a hot-button issue for many of the region’s residents. In March, the NucleTURN TO LEVIN ON 21

Local avocado company faces listeria recall Solutions for Change campus to double in size By Steve Horn

By Steve Puterski

VISTA — A proposed campus extension for Solutions for Change was approved on March 12 by the City Council. The nonprofit, which focuses on homelessness, requested $2.7 million from the city to purchase two adjacent properties next to its headquarters at 722 W. California Avenue. The council voted 4-1 in favor, with Councilwoman Amanda Rigby voting no. According to the staff report, plans call for constructing permanent and transitional housing units, rehabilitating existing units, building an empowerment center, while the developer, Kingdom Development, would operate an emergency shelter on site. About eight months ago, Solutions for Change completed another expansion project, this one increasing the size from 50,000 square feet to 240,000, said Chris Megison, co-founder of Solutions for Change. “More importantly, we went from about 45 families helped per day, to almost 200 per day,” he said. “We’re now lifting 600 formerly homeless kids and their parents out of homelessness every day.” Concurrent to the recently completed project, the nonprofit bought several properties around its main campus. The goal is to expand the front-end programs, Megison said. In total, Solutions for Change acquired six properties to nearly double the size of the main campus. Through an Exclusive Negotiation Agreement, the city is committing $2.7 million, while the remaining funds will come from other sources, Megison said. As for the groundbreaking, he said it depends on the tax credit application in July. If the application is approved, Megison said the project

Consuelo Martinez instructed the police department to give more documentation and explanatory materials when it comes before the council for budgetary items. She also said she had pulled this particular line item from the Consent Calendar, which meant it would have been voted on without discussion. “The reason I pulled this item is because the staff report that I received said ‘training for fire and police’ and it said ‘regional law enforcement equipment.’ But it gave no details as to what kind of training that was going to be or what kind of equipment that was going to be,” Martinez said. “So, in the future, any similar type of requests I would

would be completed in about 34 months. If the tax credits are not approved, the project would be delayed by about six to eight months. “Over the past two decades, we’ve pioneered a completely different model that is used to address homelessness,” Megison said. He and his wife, Tammy, started the nonprofit in 1999 after the two met a homeless girl who asked if they also lived at an emergency shelter. He said the system then, and now, is “woefully inadequate” and the reason the couple started the nonprofit. Since then, one goal has been to move away from churn and a government-based model for funds, resources and tools. When the government required Solutions for Change to take in active drug users, Megison declined and gave up the government funds. The new expansion will increase the footprint of Solutions University, a 1,000-day academy, along with two other programs. “This will take it to 86 total families,” Megison said of the daily reach. “We’ve been running a shelter on East Vista Way … and we’re going to transfer that shelter function to the California (Avenue) campus.” In addition, they will add another 18 transitional housing units and another 16 permanent units. The campus currently sits on 1.7 acres, which will double after the expansion. Rigby did not respond to messages by deadline. During the March 12 council meeting where the council made its approval, Rigby said she did not feel comfortable with the terms, although she did not expand. “We’ve worked really hard to get her comfortable,” Megison said. “We don’t understand it and we try really hard to get consensus.” ask for details about what you’re thinking of purchasing with that money, what it will be used for and just more details because I only got the lump sum.” Martinez also cited some concerns she has pertaining to civil liberties, saying she would also like details addressing these things in the next go-round. Before it was removed, the robot officer funding had been placed on the Consent Calendar as one in a block of 13 items originally slated for a council vote without discussion. Criticism of the UASI program is exemplified in a 2012 report — the byproduct of a yearlong probe — published by the office of then-U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) and titled “Safety at Any Price: Assessing the Impact of Home-

ESCONDIDO — Just weeks after receiving the Mayor’s Leadership Award from Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara at the State of the City address, Escondido-based company Henry Avocado Corporation has voluntarily recalled its product due to potential listeria contamination. The company made the announcement via press release on March 23, detailing that contaminated avocados grew in California. The product was then distributed to six different states, including Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin. Henry Avocado primari-

ly works in the avocado mass storage and distribution end of the industry’s supply chain, with a massive distribution center in Escondido, the city in which it was founded in 1925. “Henry Avocado is issuing this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution due to positive test results on environmental samples taken during a routine government inspection at its California packing facility,” reads the company press release. “There are no reported illnesses associated with this recall.” The company also pointed to potentially fatal consequences of consuming listeria in its press release. “Listeria monocyto-

genes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” the company statement reads. Henry Avocado deferred a request for comment on the exact scientific explanation behind why listeria infected its avocados to University of California-Davis professor emeritus, Trevor Suslow, who now serves as vice president of food safety for the Produce Marketing Association. “The finding of environmental positives for Listeria monocytogenes in the packing and shipping facility in California was in conjunction with a routine, not for cause,

inspection conducted by the California Department of Health consistent with Federal Drug Administration state agreements under the authority of the Food Safety Modernization Act,” Suslow said. “The recall was quickly initiated by the packer upon being informed of the California Department of Health findings and included all California-sourced avocado by the company as a precautionary measure and in an exercise of an abundance of caution for consumer protection. “These findings are relevant to a single packing company facility, for a specific and limited time period, and not the California avocado industry as a whole.”

Professor sues, seeks records related to presidential suite By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — Palomar College math professor Shannon Lienhart has filed a lawsuit against the Palomar College Community District alleging a violation of the California Public Records Act. The records in question pertain to communications about the $1 million presidential suite built on the top floor of the school’s new library for Palomar College President Joi Lin Blake. Lienhart, chair of the Committee on Political Education for the Palomar Faculty Federation union, filed the lawsuit on Dec. 27, 2018, in San Diego Superior Court. Lienhart’s request for records on July 24, 2018, sought “communications (including electronic communications) and documents regarding the Superintendent/ President’s bathroom installation in the new Learning Resource Center. “By documents, I mean every document that exists, including, but not limited to: drawings, contracts, estimates, as well as minutes, agendas, and exhibits where Governing Board approved such changes to the original design.” According to the complaint, Palomar College responded to Lienhart’s first request for records on Aug. 7, 2018, and handed over the

responsive records it said it had in its disposal. The next day, Lienhart issued a rebuttal, stat- Blake ing that she did not believe the college had provided all the available documents. According to Lienhart, none of the records transmitted in the batch included communications, such as emails, but instead centered around architectural design. “It seems unlikely that this entire project was planned and constructed without a single internal or external communication being sent,” wrote Lienhart in an Aug. 8 letter to the college. “At the very least, it seems that there should be emails to an architect or a contractor. How did President Joi Blake communicate with facilities personnel that she wanted this remodel or any of her desires regarding the remodel?” Two days later, Blake emailed Lienhart, saying the college had turned over all documents in its possession in compliance with the Public Records Act. Lienhart submitted another records request on Oct. 4, 2018, homing in on documents specifically per-

taining to the presidential suite. Palomar College denied the request on the grounds that all related documents to the suite were submitted to Lienhart back in August. “There is no further information at this time,” wrote Laura Gropen, director of communications, marketing and public affairs for Palomar College. “Please let me know if you have any questions.” Lienhart disagreed and proceeded to file a legal complaint. “(Palomar College) did not do a thorough search for all public records responsive to plaintiff’s request,” the complaint alleges. “Alternatively and/or additionally, (Palomar College) has not produced all public records responsive to plaintiff’s request, despite informing plaintiff that it had produced all responsive records.” Gropen told The Coast News that the district does not comment on litigation. But in a March 4 response to Lienhart’s complaint, attorneys for Palomar called the lawsuit “frivolous” and that the plaintiff is “inexplicably fixated upon the bathroom in the presidential office suite in the Library.” Palomar also wrote in its response that the Public

Records Act was not violated because Lienhart cannot prove that the college has the records in its possession that she says she believes it has. “Plaintiffs position that it is ‘unlikely’ that there are no further e-mails than those which were produced cannot and does not constitute a violation of the Public Records Act,” argued Palomar College. “In October 2018, Plaintiff was reminded that all of the information she requested was previously provided to her, and that there was no further information at that time. That Plaintiff wishes it were so does not make it so.” Lienhart’s attorney Cory Briggs told The Coast News via email he believes that a judge will decide the case by end of year and that more records may be released. “It’s too soon to know how they communicated (with one another), but I highly doubt that they don’t have something else in writing that should have been turned over,” said Briggs. “The public is entitled to know how the college is spending bond monies and good oversight prevents or corrects waste and abuse. Government officials usually hide lots more than they let the public see, so we need to keep pushing.”

land Security Spending in U.S. Cities.” “Congress and DHS failed to establish metrics to measure how funds spent through the UASI program have made us safer or determine the right amount to dedicate to counterterrorism programs to mitigate the threat,” Coburn wrote in that report’s prelude. “If in the days after 9/11 lawmakers were able to cast their gaze forward ten years, I imagine they would be surprised to see how a counter-terrorism initiative aimed at protecting our largest cities has transformed into another parochial grant program.” Seemingly the stuff of science fiction movies and novels, police robots have become more mainstream in recent years. Indeed, in 2016, the Dallas Police De-

partment utilized a robot equipped with a bomb to kill a sniper, the first such occurrence in policing history. The civil liberties concerns expressed by Martinez were previously conveyed by the American Civil Liberties Union. “It is easy to think up scenarios where weaponized robots might save the day, but such scenarios are likely to be rare — and meanwhile the potential for abuse and overuse is so significant that policymakers should closely monitor police departments’ acquisition of and involvement with such machine,” wrote the ACLU. “Even though the use of lethal remote force can be constitutionally permissible, a wholehearted embrace of such devices by law enforcement

would be dangerous.” This is not the first time the Escondido Police Department has received money via UASI. For example, for fiscal year 20162017, the Escondido Police Department received a $92,392 UASI grant and in 2015-2016 an even bigger $569,126, while an additional $19,508 went to the department the previous year. In the report published by Coburn’s office, the Escondido Police Department’s use of $246,000 of UASI money from an even earlier grant cycle to buy a military-style armored vehicle came under fire, pointing to reporting done by The San Diego Union-Tribune. Escondido Police Department public information officer Chris Lick, citing the ongoing investigation over the attempted

arson of a mosque in the city, could not provide The Coast News with the UASI grant application materials by press time.

No insect is more valuable than bees! By James McDonald

Insects are the vital base of the food chain, and we are killing them at a record rate. No insect is more valuable to us than our humble bee. A local man bought an avocado grove for next to nothing because the trees were not producing any fruit. He put one beehive at the center of the grove, and thereafter the trees were filled with avocados every year. 75% of our flying insects have been lost in the past 27 years. Few people notice when a species of bug is miss-

ing, and even when they do, they shrug their shoulders and throw up their hands. But we should do a lot more than that. Many birds get their protein and nutrients from bugs. Without bugs, we would have no birds. And if we have no birds, we have no humans. We need bugs. What can we do? • Plant drought-resistant flowers that don’t need extra care and fertilizers to survive. Bees need food all year, and your garden will be beautiful. • Stop using chemical

pesticides: we are killing bees because of the poisons that we dump into our environment. But because of California’s preemptive laws, we are not allowed to say anything about the chemicals dumped on private property. • Ask your elected officials to fight for a chemical-free community. If they say no, vote for people who will. All life depends on bees, and they need our help! James McDonald Encinitas Bee Co.

Funding increase needed to fight gun violence in state Dear Editor, On Monday, March 18, I was fortunate to have participated in the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s Advocacy Day. This year, hundreds of volunteers descended on the Capitol in Sacramento to advocate for increased funding of the California Violence Intervention and Prevention (CalVIP) grant program. This program funds grants to community-based organizations to implement violence intervention programs in our state’s hard-

est-hit cities. Programs and grant awards vary by city, but their success rate is undeniable: Oakland Ceasefire, implemented in 2012 and a CalVIP grant recipient, helped drop that city’s homicide rate by 43%. Operation Peacemaker in Richmond, also a recipient, similarly saw a 56% drop in homicide rates. But California’s per capita spending on this program, at 23 cents, lags behind similar programs in other states. For example, New York spends $1 per cap-

ita, and their gun homicide rate is two times lower than California’s. Our delegation of local Moms Demand Action members met with both state Sen. Pat Bates and Asm. Tasha Boerner Horvath during our Advocacy Day. We appreciated each of them taking the time to hear from us about this program, and hope to see our requested budget increase reflected in this year’s budget. Nikki Faddick Carlsbad

Kudos to council for endorsing House climate change bill emissions by at least 40 percent in the first 12 years (energyinnovationact.org). The City Council's endorsement makes Encinitas the first city in California and one of top 10 cities in the country to endorse this bipartisan, congressional bill.

california focus thomas d. elias switched parties last year were cast by Latinos in 2014, the last previous non-presidential general election year, in 2018 Latinos accounted for 22 percent. This was the single biggest reason why turnout in the districts targeted by Democrats equaled what is usually seen only in presidential elections. That flipped those seats. The best example may have been the 21st District south of Fresno where current Democratic Rep. T.J. Cox ousted longtime Republican Rep. David Valadao by a slim margin of 50.4 percent to 49.6 percent. In 2014, when Valadao won the district handily, Latinos accounted for 44 percent of votes there. Last year, that number was up to 52 percent. This amounted to an increase of almost 8,000 Hispanic votes in a district Cox carried by only about 1,000 votes. Increased Latino turnout plainly did Valadao in. Another way to see it was that President Trump’s regular insults of Latinos and other ethnic groups aroused them sufficiently to cost his party that seat. At the same time, turnout was 58 percent among eligible Latino voters in the Modesto-centered 10th District, compared with just 29 percent during the last previous non-presidential year. Latinos in that district, long represented by Republican Jeff Denham, produced 26 percent of the 221,000 votes cast, up from 18 percent four years ear-

lier. The increase did Denham in. In other districts, the Latino difference was also pronounced: The Orange County district that went to Democrat Gilbert Cisneros by a slim 51.6 percent to 48.4 percent margin over Republican Young Kim saw a 7 percent increase in Latino votes over 2014. Differences weren’t quite so great in other districts the Democrats flipped, but each of them saw increases of 3 percent to 4 percent in the Latino share of the vote. There’s a lesson here for every politician in California and nationally: When the interests of a large demographic group are denigrated by the leading figure of a major political party, consequences will follow. The backlash Trump created this time proved there’s a major price to pay for insulting behavior and rhetoric. Some Latinos thought their group’s turnout should have been even larger. “You’re definitely going to see higher numbers in 2020,” Virginia Maduena, a former mayor of the small city of Riverbank in Stanislaus County, within the 10th district, told a reporter. “As long as Republicans continue to support Trump’s rhetoric, I just don’t see how a Republican can succeed here.” She’s convinced the once-slumbering giant will stay awake and perhaps become even more alert and influential. If she’s right, Democrats stand a good chance of hanging on to many of the seats they took from the GOP last year. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

Dear Editor, During a relatively quiet council meeting on Wednesday, March 20, the Encinitas City Council took action against climate change by endorsing HR 763 — the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act. This legislation proposes a fee on fossil fuels and returns the revenue to all Americans. This policy, supported by economists and scientists, is expected to reduce America's carbon

or decades, it was been one of the biggest nightmares of the California Republican Party: What happens when the sleeping giant of California politics finally wakes up? That feared sleeping giant was the great mass of legal Latino residents in the state, who didn’t bother to vote in telling numbers through most of the years it was growing into the largest ethnic group in this state. The latest numbers show the sleeping giant in fact did waken in a big way last fall, one of the main reasons why Democrats took over seven seats in Congress that had long been held by Republicans. Yes, Latinos voted Democratic in only slightly higher proportions than they usually have. But the raw numbers told a different story. The awakening was actually a gradual thing and it is far from complete. While Latinos surpassed whites five years ago as the state’s largest population bloc by a margin of 39 percent to 38.8 percent, even now, they account for less than 24 percent of all California voters. That means Hispanics can wield even more political clout than they have over the last few years, when they at times simultaneously held both the Assembly speaker’s chair and the presidency of the state Senate. What they did last year was already enough to shake things up considerably here and in Washington, D.C. Without its new California members, Congress would look quite different today. Here’s what actually happened: Where just 16 percent of the total votes in the seven districts that

‘Meading at the Garden’ not just for wine lovers 27th annual San Marcos Spring Festival returns Special to The Coast News

VISTA — If you thought “Meading at the Garden” had to do with something in the backyard and plants, you’d be wrong. If you want to learn more about mead is — which is a type of wine — you will want to attend Meading at the Garden, the largest mead festival on the West Coast April 6 at Alta Vista Botanical Gardens in Vista. According to Festival Coordinator Dave Nichols, this is the fifth year for “Meading at the Garden” and it continues to grow. Nichols said Mead requires a winemaker’s type 2 license just like grape juice but instead of grape juice the fermentable sugar is honey, he explained. “Mead is a wine made from honey that's usually served sweet, but can also be medium or dry,” he said. “Mead that is not cloyingly sweet lends itself to festivals better in my opinion, as many of the guests are also drinking beer and don't prefer sweet beverages.” Nichols started the event five years ago and at first it was a bit small; “We had a good event so I went ahead and continued it. We’re expecting more than 800 this year, we had around 700 last year.” “I wanted to be able to fuse two of my family’s loves — mead wines and the Alta Vista Botanical Gardens,” he said. “My mother Miriam Nichols had a great love of the gardens and was a huge activist for them. She always believed the gardens would become a world-class destination for nature lovers. I wanted to fuse her love with my love and the Meading at the Garden was born.” He said Meading at the Garden continues to be a success “because a lot of people are just finding out about mead as it wasn’t a well-known beverage before the craft beer craze. Now, it is the fastest growing beverage in the

world.” Nichols said the event will feature more than 35 meaderies, cideries, and breweries. Also, 100 percent of all proceeds are donated to the Alta Vista Botanical Gardens. “Come join hundreds of other mead enthusiasts, homebrewers, aficionados, and fans for unlimited tasters of the world’s oldest fermented beverage — mead,” he said. “There will also be plenty of beer on hand from some of North County’s finest breweries for those who aren’t into mead.” Also, on hand will be delicious food from local restaurants, live and local bands. Visitors may also win raffle prizes and bid in a silent bottle auction. “The meadmaking demonstration and honey tasting are always popular events,” Nichols said.

For true mead lovers there will also be a very special gourmet VIP mead pairing at 11 a.m. Nichols will be on hand for a guided pairing of modern honey wine and contemporary cuisine. “VIP members can enjoy a delicious five-course gourmet pairing featuring primer, appetizer, entree, dessert, and aperitif,” he said. “It will be an exploration of gourmet creations as we experiment with old and new flavor combinations.” While tasting mead, sway to the tunes of guitarist Jimmy Patton, who will provide an enjoyable listening atmosphere during the VIP event which requires a VIP ticket for entry. Visitors can experience meadmaking firsthand at the mead brewing demonstration with the North County Homebrewers Association, as well as experience honey firsthand with periodic honey tastings throughout the day. There will be a Viking Village, sponsored by the Raiders of the North Viking group, that will feature a mini-village comprised of a Mead Hall, axe-throwing, live blacksmithing and leatherworking, Nichols said. Speaking of raffle tickets guests can win valuable merchandise thanks to the dozens of prizes donated by breweries, homebrewers, meadmakers, and local establishments. With every raffle ticket purchased, guests directly support the gardens. These donations help pay for much-needed improvements and maintenance, education, and natural resources like water and power, he said. Some other fun activities include a game area, virtual reality tent, virtual egg hunt, and much more. Admission is limited to persons 21 years of age and older. Event occurs “rain or shine” No refunds are possible given this is a nonprofit benefit. More information at meadingatthegarden.org.

Special to The Coast News

SAN MARCOS — Nothing says its spring like an outdoor festival and San Marcos invites everyone to its 27th annual Spring Festival & Street Fair from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 7. The event is hosted by the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce and according to event planner and coordinator Patricia Keller, the “Spring Festival is a popular community event that has traditionally served as the spring ‘kick-off’ event for the festival season.” “This ‘spring fling’ features a little something for everyone,” she said. “For all attendees this festival will host a varied mix of 200-plus vendors featuring fine craftmanship, as well as great deals on local businesses.” As the event grows in popularity, it provides the opportunity for thousands of visitors to sample in a condensed format some of what San Marcos has to offer, Keller said. In addition, the city of San Marcos always provides a large and informative booth display about the latest development news, recreational opportunities, and business opportunities within the city and along the 78 Corridor, she added. “So, the event really serves as a dynamic connection point between

the city and its residents (as well as potential residents),” she said. The festival will host a large children's attractions area on the south end along with refreshing treats, cotton candy, and decorative and whimsical face painting. In addition, a centrally located food court with music all day long will feature such foods as seafood paella, ceviche, roasted corn on the cob/or in a cup and smoked pulled pork to name just a few menu items. Those 21 and up can enjoy the chamber-hosted beer garden featuring favorite local craft breweries and there will be a stage, with music and dance entertainment all day. This free event extends along Via Vera Cruz between Grand Avenue and San Marcos Boulevard in San Marcos. There is no charge to attend the event; however, all children’s attractions, food, beer garden, etc., require onsite purchases. All proceeds go to the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce for its mission to promote local businesses in the city of San Marcos. “The sense of community in San Marcos makes this a very enjoyable event and popular destination for locals during the spring break season,” Keller said.

Hate crime probed after mosque fire By Steve Horn

Largest disc golf tournament in SoCal plays out in Escondido By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — Escondido’s Kit Carson Park played host to the largest disc golf tournament in the Southern California region in an event held from March 29 to March 31. Dubbed the Daniel Boe Memorial, the tournament featured some 341 total entrants and 110 professionals, according to Valley Center-based tournament director Mark Verrochi. In the three-round event, Steven Rico of Sylmar, California walked home the winner at -32 below par, taking home a prize of $1,205. North County resident Max Nichols, who lives in Poway, took second place at -26. He told The Coast News the result sits as one of the better ones in his career so far as a touring disc golfer. “Taking second was a great feeling, but there is always so much to learn and accomplish in this sport,” said Nichols, 28, who said he considers his best finish ever fourth place at the U.S. Disc Golf Championship in 2013. “I am always wanting more, which keeps me coming back and keeps me practicing to do better at the next one.” On the women’s side, San Diego’s Vanessa Van Dyken came out the winner with a score of -3. “This course is pretty centrally located for both North County and South County,” Van Dyken said in an interview with the broadcast television publication KUSI. “So, I think all of the best players in the region are here right now.” Like traditional golf, disc golf has a tour of its own administered by the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA). The Daniel Boe Memorial at Kit Carson Park is part of that tour. Verrochi said that individuals from three different countries, including the U.S., competed in the event, as well as disc golfers from 10 different states. One of them was Seppo Paju, from Finland, who took third place overall in the professional division with a score of -25.

“This was my third year in a row playing the Daniel Boe Memorial,” he explained. “I play mostly in the U.S. I will have about 20 competitions in the U.S. this year ... I enjoy the easygoing feel that the course has, it's actually very different from my very wooded home courses.” Expressing his love for the tournament and the atmosphere surrounding it, Paju said: “I will for sure be back at the tournament every year for the rest of my life hopefully.” Describing himself as an “advanced amateur” disc golfer, Verrochi said he began working as a tournament director in 2010 and became director of the Daniel Boe Memorial in 2014 during its first operational year. He hopes next year’s version of the tournament can morph into an official partnership of some sort with the city of Escondido for both logistical and financial help. “That's kind of the next step is trying to go to the city and see if the city's willing to commit to making this into something truly special. I mean, it already is, but just kind of taking it to the next level,” explained Verrochi. “ … we're bringing in a lot of money to the community that weekend with hotels and gas, food, a lot of foods. And so, it is a discussion I'd probably think about having over the course of this offseason or before the next tournament comes up.” The Daniel Boe Memorial always takes place during the last weekend in March. Its namesake, Rancho Bernardo’s Daniel Boe, passed away at the age of 25 in a car accident in 2014 on his way back from a disc golf tournament in Arizona while driving along Interstate Highway 8. “It’s truly wonderful to see Daniel’s spirit alive in the tournament and to his memory,” his mother Donna Boe, told KUSI. “Somebody quoted Daniel on the email page which was ‘If you’re not having fun playing disc golf, then what’re you doing?’”

I don’t think that everybody is entirely comfortable talking about the root causes of it.” Councilwoman Olga Diaz Lt. Chris Lick, public information officer for the Escondido Police Department, did not provide comment beyond pointing The Coast News to the press release when asked if the department had discovered any details about the perpetrator and the investigation’s expected timeline. The San Diego Union-Tribune has reported that to date, few clues exist for the identity of the arsonist. The attack slightly damaged the building’s exterior. In response, Dar-ul-Arqam Mosque has launched a crowdfunding campaign on the website LaunchGood, with a goal of raising $20,000. Donors from around the world have given nearly $3,000 to the cause as of March 26. In a press release, the Muslim Leadership Council of San Diego called the attempted arson an “act of terrorism.” “We want to call on the Muslim community, leaders and our Interfaith partners, to be vigilant about the safety and protection of places of worship,” said the council. “Islamophobia and hate crime activity against Muslims are on the rise and we must stand together as Americans to fight our common enemy, hate

groups and individuals who commit acts of terror against any group of Americans.” On the night of the attempted arson, San Diego County community members held a candlelight vigil in front of the mosque. It was a display of interfaith solidarity and among the speakers was Rabbi David Castiglione of the Poway congregation Temple Adat Shalom. “We don’t rise in anger, not the anger of revenge. We rise in anger for justice and righteousness,” said the rabbi, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. “We’re not saddened with the sadness that plunges us into despair but the sadness that lights the fire of that hope that says we must take care of each other, even those whose way has yet to find the light.” Also attending the vigil were local political figures, including Escondido City Councilwomen Olga Diaz and Consuelo Martinez, as well as 50th U.S. Congressional District candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar. Diaz told The Coast News that, while some attempt to depoliticize what transpired in New Zealand and now Escondido, she believes the current polit-

ical climate bears some of the blame. “I don’t think that everybody is entirely comfortable talking about the root causes of it. So you’ll see some folks bring politics into it,” said Diaz. “I think that’s a strong component of it, right? That we currently have a president who, you know, just brushes right up to his own form of racism and emboldens people to feel that this type of behavior is acceptable.” Further, Diaz said that she believes the event unfolding close to home gives the issue a more visceral sense of urgency for the local community. “It’s terrible what happens in anywhere, anywhere in the world, anywhere in our country. But when it happens in your own community, it forces you to like confront it,” she said. “Like this was not something you see on TV. This is something that happens and suddenly it brings everybody’s level of consciousness about crime, racism and hatred to the top.” California Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, who represents Escondido as part of her constituency for 75th District, also decried the attempted arson on social media. “Acts of hate and violence will not be tolerated. In the wake of the New Zealand tragedy, it is appalling that this happened in our own backyard,” Waldron stated on Facebook. “Thankfully no one was injured. Our police and fire departments are investigating and asking everyone to remain vigilant. We need to work together and support our community. We are stronger when we are united.”

ESCONDIDO — An attempted arson at a city mosque has prompted the Escondido Police Department and federal law enforcement agencies to investigate a possible hate-crime motive behind the act. Seven congregants were engaged in prayer at Dar-ul-Arqam mosque on March 24 when there was an attempt to burn down the Islamic center located on West Sixth Avenue near outh Escondido Boulevard. But the suspect, or suspects, left behind a clue. A graffiti note at the scene referenced the deadly terrorist attack by a white supremacist two weeks prior in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left 50 dead and another 50 injured. A press release disseminated by the Escondido Police Department the day of the arson attempt details that the agency has teamed up with the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, as well as Escondido Fire Department arson investigators and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department bomb and arson unit. “There were seven people in the mosque during the fire who were there for religious purposes. No one was injured during the incident and the structure had minor damage to the outside façade,” reads the press release. “There have been no suspects identified and the investigation is ongoing. The incident is being investigated as both an arson and a hate crime. Uniformed officers are providing additional patrols in the area of the mosque.”

Federal case alleging Escondido police abuse gears up again By Steve Horn

Police Department came to the dwelling rented out by the daughter of the plaintiff, Maggie Emmons, in response to a 911 call made to the department by her roommate’s mother. The mother had heard screaming on the phone while talking to her daughter. Officers arrived to do a welfare check in response to that call, but both Maggie and Marty Emmons denied the officers entry into the apartment, instead choosing to speak to them through the window. After the tension escalated between the parties, Marty Emmons attempted to leave the apartment and close the door behind him, but was swiftly tackled to the ground. He was then arrested, accused of obstructing a police offer for refusing to open the door and then closing the door behind him against the command of the officer.

Marty Emmons alleges that the police rushed to apply force on him, acting outside the bounds of the Fourth Amendment constitutional protection against “unreasonable searches and seizures.” “This is another case in which officers use force as a first (and unnecessary) option, then charge the individual with resisting/obstruction as a shield from potential civil liability for their use of excessive force,” reads the opening brief in the Appeals Court case for Emmons, filed on his behalf by attorneys from the San Diego-based Singleton Law Firm. “It was clear, at the time of this incident, that tackling an unarmed, non-threatening, elderly man, who did not see the officers or hear any command by the officers before being tackled by the officers, would be a violation of the elderly man’s Fourth Amendment right to be free

from excessive force.” The city of Escondido countered in its opening brief that its officers acted well within the bounds of the qualified immunity legal doctrine. In the 2011 U.S. Supreme Court ruling Ashcroft v. al-Kidd, the court defined qualified immunity as what a “reasonable official would have understood that what he is doing violates that right,” with “that right” those defined under the Fourth Amendment. “Emmons’ actions only served to dial up rather than dial down the concerns around the circumstances and the potential need to use some level of force,” wrote City Attorney Michael McGuinness in the city’s opening brief for the appeals court case. “Who was this man and why did he just exit unannounced as he did? Why was he determined to close the door and to do so quickly? Is he the reason

that the mother of an occupant of an apartment called 911 and reported screams for help followed by a disconnection? Is he armed? Does he intend to fight? Does he intend to flee?” McGuinness told The Coast News that for the Escondido Police Department, the “only force used on (Emmons) was minimal, measured and brief,” and thus, within the bounds of the qualified immunity doctrine. “It is the Plaintiff’s burden to identify the clearly established law existing at the time of the event prohibiting the officer’s conduct in this case (i.e. showing that it was ‘unreasonable’ and therefore unconstitutional),” McGuinness said in an emailed response. “Here, throughout all of the pleadings in this case all the way up to the Supreme Court, the Plaintiff has repeatedly failed to advance any cases which would

have put reasonable officers on notice that they could not secure Mr. Emmons in the manner they did under these kinds of circumstances.” Emmons’ legal team said its problem is with the very premise of the qualified immunity doctrine itself. “Over the past couple of decades, this prong has become increasingly difficult for victims of police misconduct to overcome,” Brody McBride, an attorney for Singleton Law Firm representing Emmons, told The Coast News. “This is because the Supreme Court has required victims to identify a past case or cases (from the circuit courts and/or the Supreme Court), in which the court found virtually identical conduct by officers to be unconstitutional.” Neither McGuinness nor McBride could say when the case will proceed to oral arguments and then a final court ruling.

AIRPORT

The airport master plan has long been a divisive issue for residents here, along with others in the flight path in Vista and San Marcos. Many of those complaints revolve around noise and voluntary night flying, which the city has no power to enforce. The Federal Aviation Administration takes control over planes in the air, but residents’ complaints have not been addressed to their satisfaction. As part of the deal, the county will install two more noise meters. Kirsch said the agreement establishes permanent quarterly meetings to

keep city staff updated on airport issues. In addition, the county will give the city 30 days to comment, reaction and feedback on any major development plans at the airport. Another aspect, perhaps one of the biggest, is the county is committed to all of the mitigation set forth in the Mitigation Monitoring Program set in the final EIR, plus in addition to those required by law, Kirsch said the county will include all mitigation measures in responses to comments in the EIR. “It’s a relatively short agreement, but it sets forth

a number of areas in which the county and city will cooperate on issues having to do with mitigation and noise mitigation, in particular,” Kirsch added. One hurdle over the years has been with the FAA, Mayor Matt Hall said. With the deal, his expectation is to work collaboratively with the county to approach the FAA, especially with flight paths and noise. Hall said he’s happy with the deal because it covers other issues such as noise, hours of operations and more defined flights paths, which were not part of the lawsuit, he said.

And with the election of Jim Desmond and Nathan Fletcher to the board, Hall said they bring a different perspective to the issues surrounding the airport. “I think the settlement was a good thing,” he added. “FAA issues, without us both working together and being collaborative, we’d never stand a chance of getting those changed. If we work as a team, I think some of those might be accomplished.” Kirsch said the Palomar Airport Advisory Committee will be a conduit of communication as the board recommends actions

to the county and Board of Supervisors. The PAAC was against reclassifying the airport. The City Council also nominated Winthrop Cramer as the Carlsbad representative to the PAAC last week. Schumacher, meanwhile, has long been against the airport master plan and wary the county would expand the airport into something resembling John Wayne Airport in Orange County. She motioned, which was passed, for the council to bring the issue back so the council and residents could have a conversation regarding the deal.

ESCONDIDO — After its sojourn to the U.S. Supreme Court, the case Marty Emmons v. City of Escondido has begun anew in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, with both parties filing opening briefs for the case in early March. In January, the Supreme Court remanded the case back down to the Appeals Court, with the case living on nearly four and a half years after originally filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in October 2014. The case centers on the concept of qualified immunity for police officers, a principle created to give police officers and departments the benefit of the doubt during use-offorce incidents. Emmons v. Escondido involved an incident that took place at an apartment close to the city’s downtown core. The Escondido

of objectives such as creating a better working relationship between the two entities and avoiding a costly legal process. “What’s really important to understand … is it’s designed to change the relationship between the county and the city with regard to Palomar Airport issues,” Kirsch said. “And in particular to establish a permanent mechanism of dialogue between the council and supervisors, and staff of the city and staff of the county.”

Joseph Damien (Joe) Saunders May 11, 1950 February 24, 2019

Joe Saunders, 68, died suddenly at his home in Clio, California, on February 24, shortly after finishing a puzzle with his grandson, Michael. Joe was the third son of the late George R. and Mary F. (Rhyne) Saunders of Carlsbad California. He was a graduate of Carlsbad High School in 1968, where he was in the band, on the tennis team, and active in student government. He attended Pomo-

na College, and Lone Mountain College in San Francisco, where he majored in music. After college Joe continued his love of music, playing trombone, piano and, ultimately, the bass guitar and banjo. He was a musical fixture in the 70’s in Northern San Diego County as a member of the popular Langen Brothers Band, and was sometimes referred to as the “Fourth Langen Brother”. Besides his avocation as a musician, Joe worked briefly as a piano tuner, but his primary career was in the wholesale flower business throughout California. He initially worked in the North County, and later worked and lived in Watsonville, Humboldt area, and Ventura County. It was in Ventura County, and in the flower industry, that he met his “soulmate”, Libby Mullikin, to whom he was married, and with whom he was living his “dream life”, at the time of his death.

Joe and Libby loved life on their mini-ranch in Plumas County, where they enjoyed the company of Joe’s son by previous marriage, Spencer, Libby’s grandson Michael, and several dogs, chickens, and frequently-encountered wild fauna. They enjoyed hiking and visiting local lakes, playing pool and cribbage, and performing the various chores incumbent on denizens of the wilderness and farm. Besides his wife, son, and grandson, Joe is survived by his sister Martha, his brothers Mark, George, Tim, and Alan, and their spouses and families. Joe is also survived by Libby’s children from a previous marriage and her grandchildren, all of whom he also embraced as family. Joe was a revered and well-loved husband, brother, father, grandfather and friend. He was a kind and gentle soul, with a wonderfully droll sense of humor, who will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

In loving memory of Walter Bruce Roland April 22, 1939 March 27, 2019

Walter passed away peacefully at his home in Mariposa CA on March 27, 2019. He was an only child born on April 22, 1939 to the late Bruce W. Roland and Fern Keim of Reading Pennsylvania. He resided in Reading PA until his graduation from Reading High School. In 1957 he joined the United States Marine Corps, at which point he began his military service at Parris

Island, North Carolina. In 1959 he returned on leave to Reading PA and married Mabel A. Kline with whom he had four children (and later divorced in 1975). He spent the next 20 years serving his country with two tours of Vietnam, and serving at MCB’s Camp Lejeune NC, Hawaii Kaneohe Bay, HI, MCRD San Diego and Camp Pendleton, CA and his home base of Reading PA. While transferring from MCB to MCB, Walter would drive his family on various routes across the United States, always stopping to enjoy the National Parks and other interesting sites to see around the country. Walter retired in 1976 while stationed at Camp Pendleton CA. In 1982 he married Vicki E. Johnson and they blended their two families into one. They resided in North San Diego County area until 1990 when they moved up to Mariposa

CA. They both worked at Yosemite National Park until they retired. Walter is survived by Vicki E. Roland, his wife of 37 years. His adult children: Becky Roland, Lori Roland Pourhosseini (Ali), Sherry Roland Hoffman (Tom), and Daniel Roland.

Charles Eric Kingston March 5, 1969 March 12, 2019

Eric loved to drive fast on his many off-road motorcycles. He was only constrained when broken bones prevented him from enjoying his favorite sport. Family lore has Eric involved in many scrapes, close calls and disasters. After one dirt bike crash he drove himself to the hospital, and was concerned only that the nurse didn’t cut off his new riding pants, and that she take care of his dog still in his parked truck. He started racing offroad when he was 10, and he died 40 years later in a freak solo ride. Eric was celebrating his 50th birthday, sharing the week-end in the desert with his sons Camron,19, and Chase, for Chase’s 15th birthday with their many friends. After Eric crashed he was helicoptered to Palomar Medical Center, where doctors were unable to save him due to his irreversible brain injury. Charles Eric Kingston was born March 5, 1969 and died March 12, 2019. Eric was the youngest of the four children of Patti and Allan

Gilbert Buckholtz, 89 Encinitas March 1, 2019 Steven Richard Fisher, 62 Oceanside March 14, 2019 John Clinton Alexander, 85 Oceanside March 18, 2019 June Dannenberg, 92 Escondido March 10, 2019

Kingston, but he never let birth order get in the way of joining his older siblings in adventures. With his enormous, sweet smile and intense green eyes, Eric charmed his way into many hearts. He lived all his adult life in the San Diego area. His “family” included many biking and boating friends who joined him and the boys on his trips to the desert and to the Colorado River. There were many happy times in the desert riding dirt bikes, quads and dune buggies. Camron and Chase have memories of the care, concern, and laughter with those Eric loved. He was always available to assist others solving problems and was there to help a friend. He had a big heart. Not really with an academic bent, Eric after high school graduation started as an apprentice learning the plumbing trade. He eventually focused on the water purification system industry, where he had many friends and associates. His colleagues considered him the “best of the best” in designing and installing clean water systems. He was a numbers guy with a bent toward the mechanical, and always worked at warp speed. Eric married Casey Zalpis and they had two sons, Camron and Chase. Eric loved being a father and the boys meant everything to him. He was deeply proud of the fine young men that his sons were becoming. It was natural that as soon as each was big enough they would have their

own motorcycles. He was adamant about safety equipment and insisted that they wear it or “they could not ride”. In 2003 the quick spreading Cedar Fire destroyed the Family’s Harbison Canyon home. Eric was assertive in working with insurance adjusters, assessors, politicians, and local officials and became one of the first owners to rebuild. Similarly, when his new pickup truck was flattened by a stolen National Guard tank, his persistence with the State of California paid off, and he was quickly reimbursed. Eric rehabbed a house in Palo Verde on the Colorado River. Friends often gathered at the river to share in water adventures as he introduced his sons to jet boats, jet skis, and other river toys. Survivors include his sons, Chase and Camron; his ex-wife Casey Kingston; his parents, Patti and Allan Kingston; siblings Brad Kingston, Jennifer (Missy) Kingston, and Blythe Peelor (Stephen); uncle Charles Kingston (Jeannette); nieces Allegra Peelor and Emelia Beldon Kingston. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday April 14 at 11 am at the Ostrander/Watson residence, 898 Vale View Drive, Vista, CA, 92081. Please text your RSVP to 760-978-9538 In lieu of other remembrances, the family requests donations to a GoFundMe account established for the higher education of his sons at: www.gofundme.com/erics-boys-education-fund

SELF PORTRAIT by artist Mike Doyle. Courtesy photo

uch has been written of water-man Mike Doyle aka “Malibu Mike” aka “The Hawk,” and the many highlights of his life that began when he first surfed in 1954. In the 1980s, after a long and very successful career in the surf industry, Mike made a dramatic life-changing decision and moved to San Jose Cabo, Mexico. This is where Doyle began his artistic journey. Mike’s art work represents a lifestyle of free and easy living, depicting colorful scenes of a tropical seaside nature. His flu-

Bob Coletti id impressionistic painting technique leaves you with a tactile awareness of his dream inducing images. Doyle wrote about his personal journey as an artist, saying he was born with a desire to express himiself. “My mother was an oil painter artist from as early as I can remember,” said Doyle, who grew up in

Lawndale in Los Angeles County. “My father was a silver- and goldsmith specializing in rodeo buckles.” In 1986, Doyle said he gave up his real job in the surf industry for painting and never looked back. “I love it,” Doyle said. “It was always in my veins but I just wasn’t sure about making a living out of doing what I totally believed in. Well, it worked for me in surfing and it’s working for me in art. “I put my brush where my mouth is and it’s working. See more of Mike’s work at: www.mikedoyle. com

REGION — A British balloonist and scientist who set 79 world ballooning records died March 26 following a balloon-related accident near Warner Springs two days earlier. Julian Richard Nott, 74, was injured March 24 in an accident several hours after his pressurized, high-altitude cabin and balloon had a soft landing north of Warner Springs and east of Palomar Mountain, according to an obituary on his website and San Diego County Sheriff’s officials. Nott’s partner of 30 years was by his side when he died at a hospital from injuries that resulted from “an extraordinary and unforeseeable accident following a successful balloon flight and landing in Warner Springs,” according to the obituary. “Julian was flying an experimental balloon that

he invented, designed to test high-altitude technology,” the obituary said. Deputies responded twice to the landing site where Nott was fatally injured near Chihuahua Valley Road and state Route 79, a remote area in northern San Diego County, Lt. Mike Rand said. Around 12:45 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the scene of a possible aircraft crash, but when they arrived they found Nott’s experimental balloon and pressurized cabin had made a soft landing in the area and no injuries were reported, Rand said. The occupants of the aircraft told deputies they needed no further assistance and deputies left the scene, the lieutenant said. Around 3:30 p.m., dispatchers received a call from a person reporting that the two occupants of the balloon had suffered back injuries and one man was going in and out of consciousness, Rand said. Witnesses told deputies that Nott and the other man were preparing the balloon’s cabin for retrieval when the passenger compartment detached and fell about 150 feet down an embankment, Rand said. A sheriff’s helicopter responded to the scene and extricated Nott and the 64-year-old man from the passenger compartment, he said. Both men were airlifted out of the area by a sheriff’s helicopter, then a second helicopter took them to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, Rand said. Nott lived in Santa Barbara, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. — City News Service

Mountain lion spotted along Escondido Creek By Staff

ESCONDIDO — In early March, fresh mountain lion tracks were seen by Escondido Creek Conservancy land managers, and a sighting was reported by a local volunteer, all within a 2-mile stretch of the Escondido Creek near Elfin Forest. Understanding animal behavior can help reduce the risk of getting yourself into trouble. Going out in small groups is recommended and you may want to make noise on the trail so animals are warned of your presence and have time to flee. Keep your headphones off while on the trail so you can stay aware of any creature or hazard that might cross your path. Maintaining a healthy balance of fear between people and predators — like the mountain lion — protects humans and protects wildlife. If you encounter a mountain lion in wildlands, do not run

or turn your back. If you have small children or dogs with you, immediately pick them up. Slowly back away while maintaining eye contact and making yourself appear larger. You can also make yourself appear more threatening by making menacing sounds and collecting nearby rocks or sticks so that if they were to attack, you’re ready to fight back. Striking them may cause the animal to retreat. If you see a mountain lion in or near your home, shout, bang pots, or use anything you can find that makes noise to scare them away. By being scary and loud, you may feel ridiculous, but you are really giving a gift to the mountain lion as its natural instinct is to be frightened of humans and, if it stays frightened, it’ll have a better chance of a long life in the wild. If you do see signs of a mountain lion, report them to information@escondidocreek.org.

The benefits, she said, include opening pathways for students as the graduate from high school and college and begin their careers. In addition, studies also show a second language also results in better academic accomplishments, such as grades, along with better test scores. And while Vista Springs doesn’t force students to speak one language

in the 50-50 program, teachers encourage the students to help each other out. “We also do a large number of community events every year, including having people come in and present in English and Spanish,” said Heald, who also speaks French, German and Portuguese. “We had an international community day, where each class sort of adopts as their country. They did activities related to that country and the students rotate around

new offshore drilling to the region’s coastal economy and environment. “The offshore drilling opposition here is so strong and from every angle, both Republicans and Democrats and from across the county,” Bradshaw said. “There is no question that San Diego County is overwhelmingly opposed to the drilling plan. It’s just a question of whether the Trump administration will listen to the overwhelming opposition that exists in Southern California.” The Trump administration recently moved to limit the scope of states’ review powers and shorten the period of time to process an appeal under the decades-old Coastal Zone Management Act. Environmental activists and opponents of the drilling plan have argued that this is a direct attempt by the president to limit the state’s ability to challenge

the proposed expansion. Bradshaw said he believes the action will backfire, as it will bring more Republicans — who are traditionally champions of states’ rights — into the fold. “That is something that will continue to unify and strengthen opposition in California, because this is an attack on states’ rights,” Bradshaw said.

and learn about all the countries.” As for the students, third-grader Nadia Beard, 8, and fifth-grader Teegan Story, 10, said the program has led to better learning opportunities and brought various methods of learning to the classroom. The students use a variety of methods, such as computers with interactive curriculum, songs and traditional bookwork. But mostly, learning a new language is fun with little downside, Story said. “It’s kind of like, why not?” he added. “It can help you in a few ways. It can’t negatively impact you, so it’s fun.” Beard lived in Italy for three years and picked up some Italian. So, when she was introduced to Spanish, she said it was similar to Italian. “Once I go to España, it will be fun to speak to other people in Spanish,” she said. “Learning how to do that is also a blessing.”

VISTA — Language programs are becoming more than a trend in schools. Schools and school districts throughout the state are beginning to invest more in early language development, and Vista Springs Charter School is no exception. The school, which is part of the Springs Charter Schools network, launched its dual immersion program with Spanish and English five years ago. Regardless of their grade level, students take part in learning a second language and the results are beginning to show, said Principal Amy Heald. “The idea is to create a community of language learners, not just the kids, but their families,” she explained. “We really emphasize bringing in the parents to participate in activities and to speak English if they’re Spanish speakers and Spanish if they’re English speakers.” The program, dubbed La Fuente, incorporates TK through fifth grade and will continue to expand into middle school as an enrichment program as the student population grows older. Heald, who speaks five languages including Spanish, said about one third of students are English speak-

Sports Rodriguez returns to North County on the run

atalie Rodriguez makes her professional debut at Sunday’s 34th Carlsbad 5000 and just maybe someone will shout “Chi-co, Chico” to boost her performance. “She is so sweet, so kind and so nice,” said Steve Scott, the race’s co-founder and Rodriguez’s former Cal State University San Marcos coach. “Then she gets into a race and she turns into a lioness.” Hear them roar and Rodriguez got an earful at last year’s California Collegiate Athletic Association 5K final in Turlock, California. After winning the 1,500-meter event, Rodriguez attempted her second triumph just hours later in the 5,000. But she trailed the leader, a competitor from nearby Chico State, until she heard those magic words. “In the last 300 meters she had to make up 50 meters,” Scott said. “Just then the “Chi-co, Chico” chant started down the home stretch and it really ticked Natalie off. With every stride Natalie was cutting down the distance she was behind and she just barely nips her at the finish line. “Natalie had already won a race; she was a conference champion and could have easily coasted in. But that showed her competitive spirit and it really kicked in when they started doing that chant.” That Rodriguez became the first NCAA Division II All-American from CSUSM was a kick in

the britches for the entire school. Count Rodriguez as among the most surprised that it was her. Rodriguez, 22, didn’t start running until high school. After verbal agreeing to attend San Diego State University, her coach suggested CSUSM and its program directed by Scott, one of the greatest America runners ever. Who? That was Rodriguez’s response as she didn’t know Scott, a three-time Olympian and the owner of a mind-boggling 136 sub 4-minute miles. Scott transformed from being anonymous to a godsend for Rodriguez. “I owe everything to him,” said Rodriguez, who lives and TURN TO SPORTS TALK ON 15

It’s the No. 4 national ranking of Cal State University San Marcos’ women’s golf team which is noteworthy. For the first time since CSUSM elevated to the heights of Division II status, a Cougars squad resides among its sport’s top five. What doesn’t warrant a breaking news alert is this nugget: Jaime Jacob is driven. “I wouldn’t say I’m a perfectionist,” said Jacob, CSUSM’s ace golfer. “I’m just very competitive.’’ Any golfer knows some swings are tougher to digest than others. So when Jacob flew her approach shot on No. 17 at Shadow Ridge Country Club recently in the Fujikura Invitational after taking the lead with consecutive birdies, her pitch came with a punch. “I couldn’t sleep that night,’’ Jacob said. When the sun rose, Jacob followed suit. She grabbed her usually trusty 56-degree wedge, some balls and returned to that dastardly spot 65 yards shy of the pin. Her do-over was done well, but it didn’t erase the sting of tying for third instead of being the medalist. “That was the first time that I had let the adrenalin take over,” said Jacob, who’s ranked No. 6 in individual play. “Usually if I’m too amped up I can feel it, I can back off and I’m very comfortable with it.’’ Those woes at No. 17 notwithstanding, Jacob is cozy atop the leader board. Jacob was recently named the California Collegiate Athletic Association player of the week, the third time this season she’s had a share of the award. Her per-

for m a nc e s are among the reasons the Cougars have won five of their seven events. Jacob, a junior from La Costa Canyon High, also doesn’t mind dividing the success that has found Jaime Jacob the Cougars. The Fujikura Invitational, which included the country’s top teams, was CSUSM’s coming-out party. The Cougars finished within one shot of No. 1 Dallas Baptist in third place and saw their ranking zoom from No. 16 to No. 4. “Going against the top teams in the nation we did well and that’s because we have a great team,’’ Jacob said. “We have seven players who can score in the top five at any tournament.’’ Three of them have won tournaments. Seniors Sarah Garcia and Bergen Benedict, plus freshman Breann Horn, have found the winner’s circle. Garcia isn’t very long off the tee but is lethal with her short game and putting. “It doesn’t matter that she doesn’t hit it very far because she always pulls it off around the greens,” Jacob said. “She’s feisty.” Benedict is consistent with her smooth, ball-striking ability. Horn, in her first year, is proving the present and future of CSUSM women’s golf resembles a smooth patch of the fairway. “It always seems like we have

someone up near the top,’’ Jacob said. Jacob shines in the classroom where big numbers are good. Her GPA is north of 4.0 and she is far from short on ambition. She’ll contribute to society thanks to her studies in global business management. But there’s also the question of going pro and what better way to travel the world as a professional athlete. “I don’t think there is anything standing in her way to be as good as she wants to be,” said Jennifer Johnson, an assistant coach and former touring pro. First she’ll take care of the business at hand — getting a CSUSM degree — and then will tackle qualifying for the Ladies Professional Golf Association in 2020. “It was just too much to do it this fall with my studies,’’ she said. Alana Uriell suggested as much when Jacob asked for advice. Uriell, from Carlsbad, was at last week’s LPGA’s Kia Classic at the Aviara Golf Club. Uriell was playing in her second LPGA event following a win at the tour’s developmental level after playing at Arkansas. “She said it was best to get her school out of the way,” Jacob said. The Cougars’ season is just getting good, with the CCAA championship at Morgan Run Club and Resort, April 15 to April 17. It’s the first step of a postseason in which the Cougars hope to advance to the Division II championship in Florida in May. It could be an early summer to remember for CSUSM as the Cougars, with Jacob in the lead, have the DNA for a special season.

Fleet, AAF suspend operations REGION — Despite having only two regular season games remaining, the San Diego Fleet and the other seven teams in the Alliance of American Football suspended all operations April 2, according to reports. Pro Football Talk reported rumblings of the league's demise Monday night, followed by the Action Network's Darren Rovell. Tom Dundon, the league’s majority owner and the owner of the Carolina Hurricanes hockey team, raised the specter of closing the league in an interview last week with USA Today. Representatives of the San Diego Fleet did not immediately respond to a request for comment. San Diego was scheduled to play the Orlando Apollos on Saturday before closing the regular season at home April 14 against the Arizona Hotshots. At 3-5, the Fleet needed to win out to have a chance at making the playoffs as one of the top two teams in the league's Western Conference. The fledgling league was only eight weeks into its first season, but faced immediate questions of funding and where each team’s players would come from. AAF

co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian intended to run the league independently for three years, with plans to eventually form a partnership with the NFL as a developmental league. According to Rovell and others, Dundon, who purchased a majority stake in the league in February, wanted to form that partnership this season and pressured the NFL Players Association to share players on NFL practice squads. Dundon argued the league could not survive without NFL support. The NFLPA balked at the rushed relationship and the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement made some of his demands impossible. Dundon apparently chose to suspend the league rather than continue committing money to it. Pro Football Talk reported that the league required $20 million to make it through the April 27 championship game. The Fleet played its games at SDCCU Stadium, with estimated turnouts growing to nearly 20,000 by season's end. The Fleet also led the league in merchandise sales.

but I wasn’t sure it would be something that I would ever be able to do,” said Rodriguez, who also works as a family counselor. “After I made a big jump with my performances at CSUSM, I realized I should take advantage of this opportunity when I’m young.” She’ll toe the line at the good old Carlsbad 5000, a trek that was concocted by — what’s that guy’s name again? “I had no idea Coach Scott designed the course,” Rodriguez said. “He is so humble that he never brags about anything.” Although Scott will speak forever about his athletes, especially ones like Rodriguez. “She has that natural ability,” Scott said. “She can definitely take it to the next level and I can’t wait see how far she goes.”

trains in San Luis Obispo. “He was so supportive. He made it a point to say running is great and it’s fun but there are a lot of other things in life, too, and that helps when you are a student-athlete.” Rodriguez, an excellent scholar, exited CSUSM with a degree and as one of its most decorated athletes with records at 5,000, 3,000 and 1,500 meters. “It took her about twoand-half years to really figure out what she needed to do to reach the next level,” Scott said. “Now she has all the ingredients: she can train hard, she is durable and she has that tenacity. But you talk to her before the race and she is so nice that you think she isn’t going to do anything.” Instead she’s going for everything as she chases runners, and a paycheck. “It was a dream of mine

of CAKES Oceanside author, blogger whips up a dessert cookbook

Special to The Coast News

OCEANSIDE — Most folks never forget their childhoods and dessert cookbook author Jackie Bruchez is no exception. The Oceanside blogger and author now in her 30s said her love of all things sweet stems from baking holiday cookies alongside her granddad when she was a kid. “My grandfather loved to bake, and we would spend a week every year making hundreds of pounds of Italian cookies to give to friends and family for the hol id ay s ,” said the author of “Decadent Fruit Desserts.” A Californian native, Bruchez is spoiled with the “never-ending growing season,” which inspired the recipes in “Decadent Fruit Desserts,” which are much more than tarts and pies. With a diverse set of recipes from “simply dressed” desserts to “frozen sweet concoctions” to “retro-modern delights,” Bruchez writes about a dessert fit for any occasion and season. Even the most novice of chefs can recreate her desserts such as: Blood-Orange Crème Brûlée, Bananas Foster Cake, Paloma Tart and Lemon Cheesecake Bars. “I love to cook and baking makes me happy and a dessert cookbook was

a no-brainer,” Bruchez said. “I’m also into gardening and I love the u-pick markets and farms.” Bruchez said the idea came about while baking and blogging on her site The Seaside Baker: “When I am brainstorming recipes for my blog, they almost always end up being a sugary concoction …” she said. She said what makes her cookbook different than others are the recipes within its glossy pages, as well as the colorful photos she photographed for it. “I tried to develop the book to have a range of easy to more difficult recipes. However, the instructions are written to be very step-by-step for every level baker,” she said. “I really wanted to enhance the flavors of the fruits with other special ingredients. This is a cookbook for anyone who likes to bake.” Bruchez combined different elements of her upbringing in her debut cookbook and said she writes of the “tropical-infused recipes that feature fruits and flavors of Hawaii, where I spent a good part of my childhood,” and Italian flavors. “I grew up eating at my grandparents’ big Sunday dinners and beaucoup French-inspired recipes that have helped manage to keep my husband around

for the past 15-plus years,” she said. Speaking of her husband, Bruchez met him when she was an exchange student in Switzerland years ago. “My husband’s family was always into gardening; they had the most pristine gardens and would serve raspberries and other fruits from their summer harvest. They would pickle everything and everything would be set for the year. It was an inspiration for me so I was in awe because my mom never did any cooking when I was growing up.” These days Bruchez and her family live on 1/8 of acre in Oceanside that has all kinds of lemon, orange and pink guavas trees. “When we moved in, we were in heaven,” she said. Before the cookbook and the baking blog there were cupcakes, Bruchez said. “I used to sell cupcakes online and did well but I had

a baby and it got to be too much,” she said. “I ended up getting my degree and my husband said I needed a creative outlet. He got me a big girl camera and domain name and that’s where the blog started.” She writes daily and creates recipes a few times a week and then tries them on her family and friends. And Bruchez didn’t attend professional culinary school and is self-taught, but she does have a degree in Political Science. She said one of her dreams is to one day attend law school. “If my grandfather could get his law degree at 70, then I can, too,” she said. “Hopefully, I will do it sooner though.” When she isn’t blogging or baking, she helps manage her husband’s landscaping business. Married for 16 years they have three children. Bruchez also loves to travel as much as she can and has lived in a variety of places. “I absolutely always love to travel and have to have something booked. Whenever we travel, I usually hit up the grocery stores first. My husband knows that if I eat something I like, we will probably be eating it at least 10 times until I can perfect it,” she said. And if you wondered if she was a dessert lover herself, she laughed and said: “I am quite the dessert lover and have the hips to prove it! My go-to dessert is probably a warm brownie with a scoop of ice cream on top.” The “Decadent Fruit Desserts” is published by PageStreet Publishers and distributed by Macmillan. It is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Indie Bound Books, and Books-AMillion.

he first few months of 2019 saw more expansion of urban wine bars, catalysts for growth and increased interest in older communities. Highlights included a discovery of the legendary Opus One on a wines-bythe-glass menu, a new pizza and pasta place run by a chef who was part of the longest pizza ever made and the return of Family Winemakers of California to the San Diego Fairgrounds with many wineries from Paso Robles. We have three such wineries on our Top Ten. All our wines are equal in excellence and are listed in alphabetical order with varied pricing to fit most any budget. • Cass Backbone Syrah, Paso Robles, 2015, $49. Cass has more fun making those distinct Rhone Valley French wines than any winery I know, from Syrah to Viognier and on to Grenache and more.

Mostly Sangiovese with some Malbec, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon, it mates beautifully with pizza, pasta and Italian salads. Visit ferrari-carano.com. • Frank Family Pinot Noir, Napa Valley, 2016, $24. This lovely easygoing red comes from Carneros in the south part of Napa Valley, and has the benefit of a cool, coastal climate by San Pablo Bay. Winemaker Todd Goff coaxes a sensitive, stunning Pinot that pairs well with most food, as only Pinot can do. Visit frankfamilyvineyards.com. • Fonterutoli Chianti Classico, Tuscany, 2015, $27. Now this is Italian. Mazzei, the maker of Fonterutoli, and 2015, a classic growing year, are a combination that is the best in a decade. This is a “Super Tuscan” style wine with mostly Sangiovese and some Malvesia, Colorina and Merlot. The Mazzei family dates back to 1435 making wine. I feel that’s enough to guarantee goodness in wine. If you want to visit, the village is Castellina. Visit mazzei.it. • Golden Eye Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley,

Getting brewing down to a science craft beer in North County Bill Vanderburgh

W

avelength Brewing Co., one of five (soon to be six) breweries and tasting rooms in Downtown Vista, celebrated its fourth anniversary on Saturday, March 23. I dropped by in the mid-afternoon and the place was almost completely full of fans of the brewery. Unlike many brewery tasting rooms that are sited in industrial spaces, Wavelength is in one of the quirky old shops along Main Street. The interior is decorated with astronomy, rocketry and science fiction memorabilia. They have a large skylight that brings in beautiful light during the day, and a serious set of stage lights for nighttime events. One of the signs out front says, “Craft Science”; their clever slogan is “So Good It Hz.” That combination of science outreach, a comfortable atmosphere, and geeky fun means that the crowd is different than what you

typically find at many breweries, too. Wavelength fans seem to be diverse in gender, age, and background, all brought together by a love of beer and science. You still see a lot of beards, but some of them are on old professors instead of hipsters. As Hans Haas, owner and now brewer, puts it on his website, “No science, no beer.” From microbiology to chemistry to thermodynamics, the science of beer is deep and interesting. And tasty. While Wavelength Brewing admits they had some beer quality issues early in their existence, they have made serious — and successful — efforts to improve. Last year, Wavelength installed a better and larger brewing system, too. Haas worked with and learned from several local experts, and the beer recipes are now “dialed in,” as they say in the beer world. I can confirm that the six beers in the flight I sampled on my visit were all good. Some, like the Stage IV Double IPA which was brewed to celebrate the fourth anniversary, were very good. Stage IV has floral and tropical fruit aromas, a soft and sweet mouthfeel, and loads of flavor. Although it comes

across as a little boozy at 10 percent ABV, overall it is well-balanced and finishes clean. It is the best Wavelength beer of the 10 I’ve tried over the last couple of years, and it puts them “up there” with other quality breweries across the region. I also especially enjoyed The Missing Link, a biscuity amber ale. It pours a slightly cloudy golden-amber color and its foamy head laces the glass, leaving ring marks

with every sip. Missing Link seemed to be carbonated a bit more than typical, which was good because the sharpness from the carbonation complemented the hop bitterness on the finish. I would have happily drunk several of these had I planned to take a rideshare home. Haas also has one of the best sound systems around.

See the great outdoors differently with OptVue Windows Outdoor pizza ovens, wine coolers, spas, jacuzzies and complete kitchen entertaining centers ... It’s no secret Southern Californians love the great outdoors and thanks to our almost perfect year-round temps outdoor living and entertaining is a favorite pastime. But besides the usual outdoor suspects there’s an additional way to get the party started and enjoy Mothers Nature’s gifts: pass-through windows with streamlined designs that allow items to be effortlessly passed from the kitchen to an outside patio or entertaining space. Pass-through windows like Optvue, Thruvue are San Diego’s newest trend in both new construction and remodeling. They help homeowners breathe new life into their spaces by bringing the outside in, and give your home a new look and feel without doing a major remodel. Fully functional passthrough Optvue,ThruVue windows are the essence of indoor/outdoor living allowing food and drinks to be passed through easily to guests all while the cool breezes flow in. If you like to entertain, or simply want to transform your outdoor space, consider installing a pass-through window in your home just in

GREAT FOR HOMES AND BUSINESSES The unique design with no bottom sill gives pass-through windows by Optvue both residential and commercial applications. Stop by Gelato 101 in Encinitas and see for yourself how cool they are. Three pass-through windows were just installed at the newly remodeled building across from the Moonlight Beach 7-Eleven under the Encinitas sign. Courtesy photo

time for summer. BELLS & WHISTLES Optvue, Thruvue passthrough windows can be customized and have various product options including an array of sizes and finishes. Easy to open and shut, Optvue, Thruvue windows are available either motorized or equipped with gas struts. This makes them

simple to open and shut whether you just want to let in a quick fresh breeze or keep them open for hours. Simply reach over the counter, turn the handle, and push the window out 6 to 8 inches allowing the gas struts or motor to take over and slowly open the window in to the final position. Imagine the possibilities when it’s a warm summer day and the kids are

frolicking in the pool while you’re in the house doing chores. The next thing you know they’re out of the pool, dripping wet and craving a mid-day snack. Instead of letting them drip through your kitchen, serve them a cheeseburger and fries via your Optvue,Thruvue pass-through window without them entering the kitchen. Hand out snacks, dry towels and sun-

screen using a pass-through window, and if you need to get your swimmers’ attention, just do a quick holler out the window. When your husband comes home from work direct him to the outside patio and serve him a cocktail via your pass through window. For parties, the Optvue Thruvue is a must have choice for serving your guests outside.

When you’re home alone and want to catch the morning sunrise but it’s chilly, just flip the switch to open the motorized window, then take advantage of unobstructed views minus traditional vertical or horizontal interference. These windows can span large or small openings and are avialable in various stock sizes. Since Optvue are the manufacturers, you can also order custom sizes to fit any project. It’s clear to see Optvue, Thruvue is the best way to get the most out your window. According to the manufacturers of this miracle window, “Modern living is often defined by clean lines, simplicity, and ease of use. Nothing distills that essence more than indoor-outdoor living, and pass-through windows are trending as homeowners clamor for ways to incorporate indoor-outdoor elements into their lives. The ability to pass food outside to guests is easier and less messy than ever,” San Diego window manufacturer Optvue specializes in pass-through windows; they don’t just sell the windows, they also make them. To see photos and videos of local projects, visit www. optvue.com or call (949) 783-8003 for a quote.

North County family-run business is bringing BACKYARD HOMES to a whole new level ENCINITAS — Recent state legislation regarding Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs, more popularly known as granny flats or backyard homes, has created a lot of buzz and opportunities for San Diego residents. And the Arendsen Family, owners of Crest Homes, with 33 years of experience in the tailored-home business, is committed to providing education and assistance to homeowners. As state laws work to ease the housing crisis by making the permit process easier with reduced or eliminated permit fees, more homeowners are considering backyard homes. John Arendsen and his Crest “Backyard” Homes team have made backyard homes their primary focus. They currently have four furnished models in Leucadia that are available to tour by appointment. Arendsen, a resident of Vista since 1980, and Leucadia since 2002, has been in the small home business for most of his life. “These new laws

have definitely enhanced awareness of the possibilities of ADUs and are making it more affordable. However, the biggest misconception is that small means inexpensive even with jurisdictional fee reductions. In today’s labor shortage environment, California construction can never be considered cheap.” As a licensed general and manufactured home contractor, manufactured home dealer and real estate broker, Arendsen is experienced in all facets of the industry. His wife and partner of 45 years, Janis, runs her own division of On The Level General Contractors Inc. dba CREST HOMES. “She has always been my partner,” he said. And four of his five children are also involved in the design and building industry, two of them with On The Level and Crest Homes. The other two own their own companies but on many projects they all interface with one another. “I am blessed to be able to rely on their expertise,” he added.

Don’t dump that mattress

A brief bout of baby fever

By Staff

REGION — Illegal dumping in California is a crime. However, you will still find spots where old mattresses have been dumped, in alleyways or parking lots, as charities won’t take used mattresses and they can’t go out with the trash. A group has formed to help solve this environmental challenge. An organization, Bye Bye Mattress, now recycles mattresses and box springs for free. Bye Bye Mattress is a program of the Mattress Recycling Council that has established a statewide network of free drop-off locations including recycling centers, collection sites and events. The collection site for North San Diego County is at Palomar Transfer Station, 5960 El Camino Real, Carlsbad. Residents can drop off their old mattress at no cost at the collection site or recycling facility. A $3 reimbursement per mattress may be given at participating recycling facilities and is limited to five units per person per day. As of January 2018, California State Law requires retailers to collect a $10.50 “recycle fee.” Did you buy a new mattress? Free mattress pickup may be provided by your retailer. California’s law also requires retailers that deliver new mattresses to offer consumers the option to have a used mattress picked up at the time of delivery, at no additional cost. However, mattresses delivered by common carrier (for example UPS or FedEx) are not subject to this provision and retailers can refuse to take back a used mattress if it poses a health or safety risk.

xcuse me while I dry me eyes. I am having a small midlife crisis. In an hour or two, I will again rejoice that my two youngsters really have begun to do things for themselves a bit, can spend a good hour entertaining themselves after they wake up in the morning, can tell me where it hurts and what they want to eat for lunch. They are still small and sweet, and I still get lots of wonderful hugs and kisses. But this morning, none of that made me very happy. It is a very good thing I can still, when I really apply myself, remember just how exhausting the first years with a new baby were for me. Why? Because I just paid a visit to a young friend and her newborn baby girl. Oh my. The envy was almost physically painful,

The main draw for ADUs tends to fall in several categories: extra income as a rental unit, independent living for a family member, or even a guest house. “ADU’s can provide an additional revenue stream for homeowners,” he said. “But I caution people to do the math and make sure they are able to recoup their investment.” With the onslaught of Baby Boomers wanting to

and I had to laugh at myself. I was so moved by the presence of this precious, tiny little creature, happily nursing away. I realized that without the barriers of age and good sense, I would still be agonizing over having another. I came home and just indulged in a little cry and then another laugh and decided I should compare my situation to retiring before you lose your title. I walked away a winner before the idea of a baby, any baby, made my legs throb and my back hurt. For me, that first year with each baby was magic. But I suspect that the knowledge of repeated sleep deprivation and the growing cost of college would have sobered me, even before my body slammed the door shut. As with labor, memories become pleasantly selective as the years slide by. After six-plus years, I can easily close my eyes and transport myself back into the hospital room with my first baby. I remember nursing them both in the dark of night, when there is no one in the world but the two of you, and you feel you can read their little minds and they yours. I remember being so captivated by their bright eyes, the shape of their lit-

age in place, Arendsen has also seen an increase in people wanting units for family members that offer independent living and privacy but in close proximity to the main home. “For older family members, it allows them to be in a familiar and loving environment as they begin to require more care,” he said. “We’ve also seen units occupied by grown children who have moved back home while

I can still taste those first damp, sweet, amateur kisses. I have had some lovely moments with my friends’ infants and toddlers. They are cute and chubby, and they have sometimes made me their friend, because they soon figure out that I think they are wonderful. But one thing is missing, that someone else’s baby can never provide. I miss that look saved only for Mommy. It is a pre-language look I saw in my infants’ eyes when I would pick them up for a hug or return from being gone for a while. I was Mommy. You will never get that look from another infant — I suspect not even from your grandchildren. It is only for Mommy, and it is extraordinary. It overfills the heart and restores the spirit. Another of God’s little tricks, no doubt. Remind me to thank him or her for that. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer, smiling and remembering when. Contact her at jean@coastnewsgroup.com.

2 pandas to leave San Diego Zoo for China REGION —A pair of giant pandas living at the San Diego Zoo as part of a conservation loan agreement with China will return home next month, zoo officials said March 25. Bai Yun, 27, and her son Xiao Liwu, 6, will remain at the zoo's Panda Canyon until April 27. A public celebration taking place over

the course of “a couple of weeks” is scheduled for this month, according to the zoo. The pandas' departure marks the last pandas the zoo has on loan from the Chinese government. Zoo officials say that panda conservation efforts will continue, though in exactly what form was uncertain. “Although we are sad

to see these pandas go, we have great hopes for the future,” said Shawn Dixon, the zoo’s chief operating officer. “Working with our colleagues in China, San Diego Zoo Global is ready to make a commitment for the next stage of our panda program.” — City News Service

paying off college debt.” Some families wish to have a backyard home for a full-time caregiver to reside on the property. Also, those with large estates may want a private dwelling for a fulltime groundskeeper or onsite housekeeper. Also popular are pool cabanas, also known as guest cottages or casitas. “Sometimes homeowners want to have self-contained units for accommodating visitors,” Arendsen said. While the future growth for backyard homes is clear, plenty of confusion continues to surround the ADU industry and the new legislation. This is why Arendsen is organizing an ADU Forum & Panel Discussion titled “ADU4U?” The event will be open to the public and provide comprehensive information from a variety of state and local officials and building experts. The event will be hosted by the nonprofit San Diego Creative Investors Association and doors open at 6 p.m.

June 11 at the Scottish Rites Center in Mission Valley. Sen. Bob Wieckowski, the architect of the new Senate Bills on ADUs, will lead the discussion with a video presentation from Sacramento about the state laws that are currently in progress that will make it even easier to build an ADU. The keynote speaker is Greg Nickless, Senior Housing Analyst for the California Department of Housing and Community Development. Other panel members include a San Diego mayor and Geoff Plageman, a city planner whose mission is coordinating the soon-to-be-released PRADU Program. It will be standing room only, so early registration is advised. For more information and tickets, visit www.sdcia.com.

“Any delay in this schedule will only increase the Department’s liabilities,” the letter states. According to the letter, the funds are paid out of a permanent appropriations account called the “Judgment Fund,” and add to the federal deficit without the benefit of budget or appropriations considerations. The Trump administration’s fiscal year 2020 budget for the DOE requests “robust” funding to address spent nuclear fuel vita an interim storage program, which could help with the startup of a consolidated interim storage program within DOE that would initially focus on accepting spent nuclear fuel from shutdown reactors. The letter notes the NRC is currently conducting a multiyear technical review on two interim storage facility applications to ensure the facilities up to standards. “Our constituents have waited patiently for action on this matter, and it is past time that we end the continued stalemate that is wasteful of taxpayer resources and detrimental to the redevelopment of these sites in our communities,” the letter states.

ar Regulatory Commission (NRC) imposed a $116,000 civil penalty to Southern California Edison for two violations of federal requirements at SONGS. The violations relate to Edison’s handling of an Aug. 3, 2018, incident after a stainless steel Holtec canister containing 50 tons of spent nuclear fuel rods got stuck on a shield ring as it was lowered into a concrete vault. The congress members’ letter calls for $25 million in federal funding to support the development of a consolidated interim storage program at the Department of Energy (DOE) and assist with site preparation activities and regional transportation. Congress members are requesting $10 million for the initiation of such a program, another $10 million for site preparation activities to prepare for moving spent nuclear fuel to interim storage facilities, and $5 million to support DOE’s efforts for transportation coordination. Other congress members from California who signed the letter include Democratic Reps. Doris Matsui, Ami Bera, Tony Cárdenas, Salud Carbajal, Jerry McNerney, Harley Rouda and Scott Peters. According to the letter, the federal government has been found by the courts to be in partial breach of a contractual obligation to remove spent nuclear fuel beginning in January 1998 as created by the 1982 Nuclear Waste Policy Act. The DOE has estimated the resulting impact on taxpayers could reach or exceed $30.8 billion assuming the department is in a position to begin meetings its obligation with a pilot consolidated storage facility in 2021.

Emotions will be difficult to ignore this year. Make a point to revisit old goals and decide what’s really important to you moving forward. Nothing is out of reach if you go about getting what you want with finesse, intelligence and a positive attitude. Reach for the stars. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t lose sight of who you are, what you want and how capable you are of taking charge. Don’t let anyone take control when it comes to getting what you want. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A reserved attitude will serve you well, especially when dealing with government agencies, financial or medical institutions, or legal matters. Stick to facts, and offer as little personal information as possible. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don’t let someone from your past disrupt your day. An exaggerated opinion will lead you in the wrong direction. Make adjustments that will benefit you, not someone else. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Put greater emphasis on how you earn your living and handle your money. A decision should be made based on facts and figures, not on what someone is trying to sell you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When opportunity knocks, be ready to take

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don’t get angry; take the necessary action to counter any negative thing in your life. Controlling a situation is better than ignoring what’s going on around you. Romance is in the stars.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Do your due diligence before you make a decision. Don’t expect everyone to like the choice you make. Follow what feels right, not what someone else wants you to do. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A change at home will add to your comfort and enhance your relationship with someone special. If you are creative in how you approach whatever you do, success will be yours.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -Listen to someone, but don’t be gullible. When in doubt, gather the facts and act only when you are certain that what you are doing is right. Someone you least expect will withhold the truth. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Try something new, or use your skills differently to discover something that can be life-altering. A romantic gesture will improve your personal life and future.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Trust in your ability to get things done. A positive change will take place if you put your energy into making physical adjustments that suit your needs.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Offering or accepting help will lead to emotional problems. Don’t interfere or let others meddle. Making or listening to suggestions and being nonjudgmental are in your best interest.
