REGION — After more than a year of planning and execution, the Solana Center for Environmental Sustainability is set to unveil its midscale composting demonstration and training site — the first of its kind in the state. The site, which is located at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, comes at a critical time when a new state law requires businesses to recycle their organic waste — lawn clippings, food waste and other similar waste — rather than sending it to landfills. “Residential and large commercial composting is most common, while midscale composting is sometimes forgotten. However, the importance of mid-scale composting is growing because of new state laws and companies’ increased desire to preserve the environment,” Solana Center Executive Director Jessica Toth said. The Solutions for Organic Waste Diversion presentation series is from noon to 5:30 p.m. April 9 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Infield Farm, the site of Solana Center’s Eco Learning Lab, which debuted at the fair in 2016. “This presentation series will teach local solu-

tions for diverting waste that would otherwise contribute to landfill greenhouse gas emissions. I’m proud to say we’re once again on the forefront of an environmental trend,” Toth said. Assembly Bill 1826, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed in September 2014, started taking effect in April. It requires businesses to divert organic waste, including food scraps and yard trimmings, from landfills. As of Jan. 1, businesses generating more than 4 cubic yards of organic waste per week are subject to the diversion requirement. Toth said previously that mid-sized businesses have been increasingly interested in composting after CalRecycle published new composting regulation that loosens certain restrictions on midsize composting efforts. That also led to a need for proper training of operators of such composting sites, Toth added. Without proper training, compost operations run the risks of polluting waterways through the stormwater system, creating vector and odor problems, and propagating harmful pathogens, which TURN TO COMPOSTING ON 16

Horn touts North County’s financial footing, public safety efforts By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — With four members of the Board of Supervisors set to be termed out of office by 2020, Dist. 5 Supervisor Bill Horn urged potential candidates for those spots to follow in his and his colleagues’ fiscally conservative footsteps during his annual State of North County Address. “I want to see the next generation of supervisors, they need have that same commitment,” said Horn, who will leave office due to District three County Board of Supervisor Kristin Gaspar introduces Suterm limits in 2018. “When pervisor Bill Horn prior to his State of North County Address.

ESCONDIDO — With the weather warming, and springtime springing, Kit Carson Park has announced its hours of availability for the Queen Califia’s Magical Circle installation. The exhibit is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The artist of the exhibit is French sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle, who throughout her career has had installations throughout Europe, including France, Scotland, and Germany. The nine sculptures in the garden represent stories and symbol from California’s mythic and historic past. The titular Queen Califia, for example, is named for a fictional warrior queen who ruled over a kingdom of Black women living on the mythical island of California. The exhibit first opened in 2003, and is a permanent installation to the park. De Saint Phalle has a long history in San Diego, and several local installations. She moved to La Jolla in 1994, and

Vista moves forward NCTD announces changes to LIFT services with by-district elections to a live person to make, change or customer riding experience. By Promise Yee

By Ruarri Serpa

Vista — Despite their reservations, the City Council unanimously decided to explore switching to district elections to choose council members. The decision comes nearly three weeks after an attorney, representing a voting-rights organization for Latinos, threatened to sue the city over violations of the California Voting Rights Act, if it didn’t change its system of electing council members at-large, to voting districts. No city has successfully defended against these types of lawsuits, and that track record was front of mind when council members made their decision on March 28. “I think (this lawsuit) is horrible for my city. If this wasn’t going to cost $5 million and we still lose, I would adamantly oppose and kick and scream like crazy, but this is the one fight…I walked in and lost before I threw a punch,” Councilman Joe Green said. Specifically, the council chose to explore establishing four districts, with the mayor continuing to be elected at-large. Two districts would be up for election in 2018, and the final two would be elected in 2020. Most council members expressed their frustration

at being told what to do by outsiders — both Shenkman, who lives in Malibu, and the state legislature in Sacramento. “It’s a sad thing, and I don’t like to be dictated to by Sacramento what we can do with our city,” Mayor Judy Ritter said. Another common concern was that five members would represent the city better than four districts competing on the council.

It’s a sad thing, and I don’t like to be dictated to by Sacramento what we can do with our city.” Judy Ritter Mayor, Vista

“I feel our council has represented all parts of our community,” Councilman John Aguilera said. “The reason I’ve been opposed to districts in the past is because that might go away, and you might only have one person fightTURN TO VOTING ON 7

REGION — LIFT services will see changes in management, ways to reserve a ride and rate structure beginning this summer. Services provide transportation for passengers who are functionally unable to use fixed-route services in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Upcoming changes were prompted by an increase in ridership and an audit recommendation to reduce operations costs. “NCTD has seen an increase of 160 percent in cost and a 53 percent increase in ridership on the LIFT program since fiscal year 2012,” Kimy Wall, CMP manager, marketing and communications, said. A welcome change this summer is riders will be able to make and change reservations online 24/7. This allows greater flexibility than the 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. phone hours that are now provided, and will continue. “Currently passengers call in

cancel a reservation,” Wall said. Beginning in fall 2017 rates will change from a $3.50 one-way flat fee, to a fare based on the number of transfers a trip would have if the customer were using NCTD’s fixed-route services. NTCD did not provide a rate comparison, but said customers will be told the cost of their trip when they make a reservation. Along with rate changes an EZ-Wallet payment processor will be implemented to allow riders to pay for their trip with a credit or debit card. MV Transportation will begin managing LIFT operations July 1, as initial changes go into effect. Going forward there will be increased staff resources for MV, enhanced training requirements and new technology. New software reporting systems will give NCTD in-house oversight of LIFT operations, and greater opportunity to improve the

Passengers who use LIFT services must be certified through an online and paper application process. The application includes medical records and is reviewed in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. All LIFT riders will be required to be re-certified in fall 2017. Certification for some applicants may include an in-person interview or functional assessment. If either is required, NCTD will cover the costs for transportation to and from the evaluation center. There are 5,600 customers certified to use LIFT services, which is 1.66 percent of NCTD’s total ridership for the 2016 fiscal year. The final information meeting on LIFT service changes is scheduled: April 12, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oceanside Public Library Mission Branch, Community Room 3861 Mission Avenue, Oceanside

Nonprofit group completes renovations on apartment complex By Adam Sullivan

ESCONDIDO — The local neighborhood children once knew Cypress Cove Apartment’s community center as “the haunted house.” It was abandoned, trashed and covered in spray paint. But the haunted house is gone now — and that particular nightmare is over. In its place stands the newly renovated (and renamed) Manzanita apartment complex, 200 units

replete with modern amenities and green building practices. Community HousingWorks (CHW) is the California-based nonprofit responsible for the project, and along with it, the hopes of making the Escondido neighborhood cleaner, safer and habitable for affordable-income renters. “Rents throughout the state continue to rise, making it more and more challenging for families to afford the basics,” said Community HousingWorks President and CEO Sue Reynolds, adding that it’s “increasingly important to preserve affordable housing.” Cypress Cove was built nearly 40 years ago, as a combination of townhomes and flats designed to house a variety of tenants, including families with children, singles and seniors. CHW bought the aged property in 2014, and worked with the city to extend its affordable rent status for another 55

years. CHW then proceeded to invest an additional $8.83 million into the renovations, using a variety of low-income housing tax credits, bond financing and funds from the city. Escondido Mayor Sam Abed explained that the long-term effects of the renovation are much greater than simply discounted rent. “We feel very fortunate that CHW chose to renovate the Cypress Cove community, which not only provides affordable housing for families, but a sense of stability and the tools needed to get ahead,” he said in a press release. In addition to a much-needed facelift, Manzanita’s massive upgrades include new air conditioning units and plumbing upgrades, as well as outdoor amenities like swimming pools, playgrounds, and dedicated areas for barbecues, picnics, and basketball. CHW also recognizes and embraces the value of environmentally sound living situations: Manza-

nita now boasts energy-efficient windows, domestic solar hot water, and a solar photovoltaic system. All of these amenities are greatly appreciated by the new residents. “Losing these units to market-rate housing would have been devastating for us,” said Antonio Navarro in the news release. Navarro, a resident in the complex, added that, the “renovations are a tremendous change. Along with upgrades to the apartments, CHW brought the unusable community center back to life.” Monthly rent at Manzanita ranges from $762 to $1,272, depending on both the size of the unit, and the renter’s income. Manzanita is the eighth affordable housing community CHW has added to the Escondido community. Other projects currently in their pipeline include Mission Cove, a senior community in Oceanside, and North Park Seniors, which will be San Diego’s first-ever LGBT-affirming senior community.

Leucadia Towing moves to San Marcos By Aaron Burgin

Hunter protest in Escondido calls out congressman’s alleged ethics violations By Tony Cagala

ESCONDIDO — The Indivisible North San Diego County movement continued with another of its rallies against local politicians — this one, held at the end of March, was aimed at Rep. Duncan D. Hunter (R-Alpine). Hunter, whose 50th District includes a portion of Escondido, is the subject of a criminal investigation over possible ethics viola-

tions alleging he may have converted tens of thousands of dollars of campaign funds for personal use. Some of those personal uses reported include family trips to Italy and Hawaii, an oral surgeon, private school tuition for his children and video games. People out front of the main entrance to the Westfield North County

Mall on Via Rancho Parkway carried signs calling out Hunter for his alleged ethical actions, and some wore rabbit ears — a nod to Hunter’s spending of $600 to fly the family’s pet rabbit during his campaign, as initially reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune. The House Ethics Committee, which has been reviewing allegations that Hunter “converted campaign funds to per-


sonal use to pay expenses that were not legitimate and verifiable campaign expenditures attributable to bona fide campaign of political purposes,” since last year, agreed on March 23, according to a press release, to put its review on hold based on a request from the Department of Justice.

ENCINITAS — A longtime Encinitas towing business is adjusting to life in San Marcos after leaving its base of operations at Pacific View Elementary School earlier this month. But the transition has not been easy, Leucadia Towing’s owner, Joe Radick said. “We want people to know that we are still open for business and still serving the community,” Radick said on Wednesday. “Keep us in mind when you need roadside service.” The company operated at the Pacific View site for several years before the city purchased the property from the Encinitas Union School District and placed it and another business, Encinitas Glass, on a pair of six month leases before terminating the agreements last October. The city issued a letter in February demanding the company get off the property by Feb. 7 or face forced eviction. At the same time, the tow truck company’s attempt to relocate to city property on Santa Fe Drive was denied by the City Council in January 2016. After a month of negotiations with the city, Radick ceased operations at Pacific View on March 1.

Since then, the tow company has lost its largest contract, a towing and emergency roadside assistance contract with the Automotive Association of America, or AAA. AAA contracts are highly coveted among tow companies and often can become their lifeblood. In Radick’s case, he estimates

We want people to know that we are still open for business and still serving the community.” Joe Radick Owner, Leucadia Towing

85 to 90 percent of his business was through AAA. “We tried fulfilling the contract from San Marcos, but it didn’t work,” Radick said. Radick said he still hopes to return to Encinitas, and expressed disappointment they and the city were unable to find a location. Leucadia Towing’s phone number is (760) 436-0972.

Citizens unite against BMX track in Kit Carson Park By Jerry Pizet

Farmers among those fearing immigration raids California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


he specter of peaches and oranges and apricots and artichokes rotting on the ground or on trees hangs over California agriculture this spring, in the wake of a series of immigration raids during the first months of President Trump’s administration. If you want to know why it’s not merely undocumented immigrants who fear the prospect of more and larger raids — the first set of them in February saw federal agents net about 600 persons in this country illegally nationwide and a reported 109 in California — it helps to look back to the early 2000s. There is no accurate count of how many have been rounded up since. Illegal immigration, of course, was already a hot political topic 15 years ago, in the wake of the 1997 Proposition 187, which sought to bar the undocumented and their children from public schools and health clinics and almost all other public services in California. Most of 187’s provisions were thrown out by federal judges within a year of its passage, but the memory of the 65 percent “yes” vote on the measure was still vivid. So Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, then in her second full term, decided to check how much of the unemployment problem, then and now serious in both California and the entire nation, could be chalked up to the undocumented taking jobs from U.S. citizens who wanted them. She arranged for every office of the state Employment Development Department to list menial, farm-re-

lated jobs like strawberry picking that were actually available at the time. Absolutely none of the many thousands of citizens then drawing unemployment benefits in California bit on those jobs, even though everyone on unemployment must report job-seeking efforts in order to get a check. The reasonable conclusion from this experiment — which has not since been repeated anywhere — was that unemployed U.S. citizens were not interested in the kind of low-paid, seasonal and physically demanding jobs that often attract illegal immigrants to California and other parts of America. That’s one big reason for this estimate from the American Farm Bureau Federation: Between 50 percent and 70 percent of all farm workers in this country are here illegally. The fear of farmers in the Central Valley, who turned out in big numbers for Trump’s single fund-raising dinner in California last fall, is that nothing much has changed over the last 15 years in the way American citizens view these jobs, even if the minimum wage is now a lot higher than before. California farmers clearly hope immigration raids that so far have targeted some textile workshops, other non-farm businesses and have masqueraded at times as “gang sweeps,” stay far away from their fields. Farmers here saw what happened in the weeks between Alabama’s adoption in 2011 of the nation’s harshest-ever anti-illegal immigrant law and when it was largely struck down by courts. That law required police to check the immigration status of all suspects and turn illegals over to

federal authorities. For awhile, school officials had to demand birth certificates from new pupils. The undocumented still cannot conduct business of any kind with state or local government there, other than paying state sales and gasoline taxes. After the Alabama law passed, many employers reported massive absenteeism, droves of illegals staying home from work for fear of immigration raids. Tomato farms reported fewer than half their workers showed up the next week and chicken farmers said many of their employees flew the coop. The same for plant nurseries, building contractors and more. Prices for tomatoes and other produce rose quickly up and down the East Coast. This lasted months before state officials tacitly relented and many workers returned. But almost no U.S. citizens applied for the vacant jobs. One California farmer fearing Trump-ordered raids told the New York Times that “If you have only legal labor, certain parts of this industry would not exist. If we sent all these people back, it would be a total disaster.” It’s not that the undocumented workers are lowpaid, either. That same farmer said many of his undocumented employees have worked for him more than a decade and now make upwards of $11 per hour, above the current minimum wage. All of which explains why farmers fear stricter immigration enforcement almost as much as their workers. Email Thomas Elias at For more Elias columns, go to

My name is Jerry Pizet, and I’m the publisher of the Public Facebook Group known as, “We Are Kit Carson Park.” We are a 2-year-old Facebook group as of February 2017 and have 104 members including nine “Park Ambassadors.” As you might guess, our mission statement entails protecting and caring for the park. For the record, our group has been very complimentary of the city of Escondido regarding the park’s maintenance, care, general up keep, as well as other matters pertaining to the park. Postings at our group over these past two years will surely confirm my previous statement. Getting directly to the point, it has come to our attention that the Escondido City Council is now entertaining placing a BMX dirt track in Kit Carson Park — once again. While we are certainly not opposed to any BMX in Escondido, we are however vehemently opposed to placing it Kit Carson Park for numerous reasons — reasons that should be ob-

vious with absolute minimal analysis. Furthermore, it is difficult to understand what has changed from the last time the citizens of Escondido overwhelmingly rejected the BMX idea almost four years ago — along with the 9-acre waterpark consideration. And judging from the

Petitions are already being signed as well as placed in public areas. Council’s public meeting on this subject matter, it’s apparent there’s a driving force within the city to construct the BMX dirt track in Kit Carson Park regardless of what Escondido citizens think. However, since that meeting, there’s been a firestorm of opposition building among the citizens of Escondido to squash this idea at the request for proposal level. Specifically: “Friends

of Kit Carson Park,” “We Are Kit Carson Park,” and the “San Diego Aces Disc Golf Club,” are now leading the charge to put a stop to an idea we feel is absolutely “insane.” Collectively the current opposition represents over 800 park-using citizens that will surely be against the BMX dirt track in our park — with other groups scheduled to join in shortly. Petitions are already being signed as well as placed in public areas. In summary, the turn out against the BMX in Kit Carson Park will surely exceed that of the waterpark’s opposition. In conclusion, these opposition groups would simply like to see the city’s pending RFP strike any consideration of Kit Carson Park as the final resting place for the BXM dirt track. It would save much time and energy otherwise wasted, as well as eliminate all the negative publicity that will surely come regarding this matter. Jerry Pizet is an Escondido resident and publisher of the “We Are Kit Carson Park” Facebook group.

Letters to the Editor Sanctuary cities? It’s time for a sane sanctuary city compromise? Hardly. Mr. Elias’ view (‘It’s time for a sane sanctuary city compromise,’ March 24), that there should be compromise regarding applying U.S. law to sanctuary cities is a view based on political posturing. Either

a law is violated or it is not. Undocumented immigrants who broke the law should experience the full consequence of breaking the law, (splitting families does not have to be the case: send the entire family back.) The same comment about law-breaking is true for cities, counties and states.

Why should some entities be above the law and others not? That must not be the case. If entities break laws without retribution, then we have anarchy. We must avoid anarchy in a civilized republic. John Fiscella, Carmel Valley

SANDAG budget has money to study bluff removal By Bianca Kaplanek

Helping those in need Northbound vince vasquez


reat news! There’s more progress in the push to serve North County’s vulnerable populations. This week, the new Carlsbad Service Center will celebrate its official opening. The 2,500 square foot building, which was secured with support from the Carlsbad City Council and a $600,000 federal grant, is a substantial improvement from the mobile trailer that was previously used for the center. The facility will be operated by Interfaith Community Services, North County’s largest social services agency. I asked my friends at Interfaith to update me on the details of this facility after I learned about it last fall. Compared to the old trailer, the new center will provide additional capacity to meet more client needs, such as storage, social and employment services. Federal funding fully covered the purchase of the building, as well as the improvements Interfaith made to the facility, including a computer lab, open office spaces, meeting rooms and a refrigerator-freezer to support healthy food distributions. Operating hours will also be extended to serve a greater number of clients. Available services include computer lab access, emergency food supplies, interview apparel, case management, job connections, and access to social services.

As you said, Mayor Judy, you feel like you have no voice and that’s what the community of minorities feel…. Like we have no voice,” Cindy Odo-Amen said. Still to be decided is what the four districts would look like, and the council heard from a demographer, Dr. Justin Levitt, who helped El Cajon, Escondido, and San Marcos establish their districts. He described the process of creating the maps, and what criteria could be

work of programs across North County, as well as referrals to their partner organizations. Kudos to the Carlsbad City Council and Interfaith on partnering together to build the new Service Center. As our community continues to grow, the importance of meeting human needs grows too. I’ve previously written in this column about the growing suburban poverty and homeless population in North County. Every city in our part of the region has to do their part, particularly when it comes to helping people help themselves. In a press release, Interfaith states that the new Carlsbad Service Center will do just that. “We’ve had a presence in coastal North San Diego County for many years, and we’re excited to further expand our reach and impact in Carlsbad with the support of the City,” remarked Greg Anglea, Executive Director of Interfaith Community Services. “Thanks to their generosity, we will be able to help more individuals than ever return to the workforce and continue on their path to self-sufficiency.” How do we create positive change as a community to serve others in need? Public-private partnerships and funding are critical, particularly in a resource-strapped area like San Diego County. So too is raising public awareness to unmet needs and opportunities to serve others in big and small ways. Perhaps this is a good time to reach out and volunteer in the community? A few hours of community service in April would be well received. Vince Vasquez is an economist based in Torrey Pines. He is a Carlsbad resident. used to define districts, like streets, highways, rivers or groups of neighborhoods. Whatever those boundaries, the districts would need to meet Federal standards for equal population, without racially gerrymandering, and in compliance with the Voting Rights Act. Levitt said that process needed to involve input from the community. “We encourage people to tell us, ‘This doesn’t work for X, Y, and Z.’ Those reasons that you give, for why a map works or doesn’t work - that’s the heart of this,” Levitt said. Vista won a lawsuit in 2003 against the Department of Justice, which alleged the city was violating the voting-rights of Latinos. It was this defeat, as well as others the DOJ brought against cities, that instigated the California Voting Rights Act — the law now being used to force cities to adopt new electoral systems.

Margaret Jean Thibodo (Margie) September 11, 1925 – March 22, 2017

Margie was born in Centerline, Michigan on September 11, 1925 to William and Hazel Langley. Her father was from England and her mother was from Michigan. She had one sister, Helen. Margie began her life of tap dancing at age ten and taught tap lessons at the Monte Carlo School of Dance when she was only sixteen. Margie was also a majorette/baton twirler during her high school years. As a teenager, she joined the USO as a dancer and singer and traveled to the South Pacific and other locations to entertain the troops for four years during World War II. Margie married Russell Thibodo on February 16, 1946 in Lynwood, California and shortly thereafter they moved to Vista. She spent her time teaching high school students baton twirling, and her students were the first to participate in local parades.

Submission Process:

After her four children came along, Margie became very active in the Vista schools, participating in the PTA and helping out at various schools. She also began teaching tap dancing at the Vista Girls club where she donated her time for the next fifteen years. She also taught in her home dance studio. Margie belonged to many local organizations including Triple M, PEO, and was an honorary member of the Soroptimist Club. She was a Tri City Hospital Foundation member and is a founding member of the Vista Foundation which supported the Moonlight Amphitheater. She attended Vista Community Church and Riverview Church in Bonsall. After Russell passed away in 2001, Margie moved into La Costa Glen Retirement Home. She eventually moved back to Vista where she resided for the past ten years. Margie is survived by her four children: Janice (& Stuart) Free, Nancy (& Doug) Beckett, Gary (& Cheryl) Thibodo & Denise Thibodo, eight grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren. Margie’s Celebration of Life Service will be held on April 22, 2017, 2:00 pm, at Hope Church, 1755 Thibodo Road,Vista. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to Hope Church, Elizabeth Hospice in Escondido, Operation Hope in Vista, or a charity of your choice.

The dangerous lives of little ones small talk jean gillette


orking around y o u n g children can be many things. They can be shriekingly loud, boisterous, careless and goofy, smart and serious — and just as often, so adorable you want to cry. What almost made me cry this week? Well, first it involved little boys, who are my soft spot. Four second grade boys bustled into the nurse’s office, one of them holding his head and crying quietly. Now you know he is hurting, because very few almost-third grade boys will cry without a good reason. Turns out he had somehow flipped backward off the lunch bench (“Oh no! Nobody pushed him!”) and cracked his head on the pavement. His buddies were breathlessly sharing what happened with the nurse, and as one paused, the other said, with some

pride, “And we gave him the concussion test!” “What,” asked the nurse, once the patient was settled with a large ice pack, “is the concussion test?” “Well, first you ask them their name. Then you ask their mother’s name, and then what year it is.” He rattled off several like questions, ending with “and he knew them all!” “How do you know about a concussion test?” The nurse asked, chuckling. “Oh, my brother gets concussions all the time!” he replied with a big smile. I often joke about “the dangerous lives of boys,” starting from when my brother broke both arms twice, carrying on through with my son throwing himself into a few odd and scary accidents. Today, however, you cannot limit that high-energy, go-for-broke, competitive behavior to boys. It delights and terrifies me equally to see today’s young women hitting the soccer field, martial arts mat and, actually, any areTURN TO SMALL TALK ON 16

Willow mattress proposed to help reconnect trail By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Tree branches and soil layered to create what is called a willow mattress is the latest plan to help restore an approximately 75-foot section of the Coastto-Crest Trail, adjacent to Del Mar Horsepark, that was washed away last year. The proposal was submitted to the California Coastal Commission by the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which owns Horsepark, as an amendment to its development permit. “There would be thick layers of willow cuttings and dirt,” said Kevin McKernan, executive director for the San Dieguito River Park Joint Powers Authority, which maintains the trail. “The willow sprouts roots and regrows, creating a thick vegetative

know that I would call that a solution, though.” According to a study completed in July 2016 by Environmental Science Associates to assess the site conditions and develop potential concepts for bank stabilization, the area and surrounding sections of bank “are inherently susceptible to ongoing bank erosion.” There is, however, “potential to locally increase bank stability and the longevity of the current trail alignment by creating a lower gradient bank with more vegetation and a more resistant toe.” While that will buy some extra time for the trail, it will not reduce the factors causing erosion in that part of the river. In other words, it “will reduce the symptoms and rate of bank erosion but not the causes,” the study states. On Jan. 7, 2016, following a heavy storm, the bank collapsed and severed the Coastto-Crest Trail west of the El Camino Real Bridge. The JPA sought to repair the damage, but a Coastal Commission permit issued to the 22nd DAA includes special conditions that do not allow “channelization,” such as berms, walls, riprap and shotcrete, or “substantial alteration of a river or stream” to protect the development from flooding or the riverbank from eroding. McKernan said the first proposed solution was to install a railroad flatcar but

that was deemed too big for the site. This past October, McKernan suggested installing a prefabricated, 6-foot-wide, 100-foot-long pedestrian bridge. David Watson, a 22nd DAA board member, said he opposed the railroad car because he doubted the Coastal Commission would “look favorably on putting an old railroad car in a sensitive habitat area.” “It would be too much like an armored barrier wall,” he said. Contrary to what some believe, Watson said, “I am not opposed to a bridge. … An environmentally sensitive design for a bridge is more likely to be approved.” McKernan said the JPA’s primary interest is keeping the Coast-to-Crest Trail connected and the bridge, estimated to cost $90,050, “seemed like a viable option.” Dustin Fuller, senior environmental planner for the 22nd DAA, said with the permit application for the willow mattress submitted to the Coastal Commission he will “work with (its) staff to find a compromise solution.” “Once you put in supports for the bridge, it’s possible it will erode away around it,” Fuller said. When finished, the 71mile Coast-to-Crest Trail will connect from the beach in Del Mar to Volcan Mountain near Julian. Approximately 45 miles are complete.

Alkaline water without having to leave your house REGION — “Drinking enough water isn’t really enough,” Mike Wingenbach said. “You have to drink the right kind of water. Water that will help buffer acid, remove toxins and is easily absorbed by your body.” As an independent retailer of one of the best home alkaline water systems on the market, Wingenbach knows a thing or two about the benefits of having alkaline water in your home. LivingWater is a countertop unit that hooks up to your faucet, providing acid-buffering alkaline water for drinking and cooking right in your kitchen. The acidic water is also good for cleaning without chemicals and watering plants. So what exactly does drinking alkaline water do for your body? “When you drink alkaline water regularly, you’re helping your body to hydrate itself as well as flush out toxins and waste products,” Wingenbach said. “If you’re trying to lose weight, you may get a boost there as well. Overall, there’s no better way to help stay healthy.” The unit works by using two



to keep speed up, but they’re deeper and longer,” Worden said. Tunnels under Crest Canyon and near Interstate 5 were in the billion-dollar range. An environmental impact report completed in 2009 for the bridge replacement considered the Camino del Mar option and one other alignment. An environmental constraints analysis, which Worden described as “a quick-and-dirty” assessment, determined all five alignments would work. Worden said he and Mayor Terry Sinnott agree the best strategy is for Del Mar to work in conjunction with the other North County coastal cities up to Oceanside, “saying we had some kind of a vision of what the whole corridor should be like.” “Terry and I agreed we would do an outreach to the people interested in rail issues on those councils,” Worden added. “Hopefully then it won’t just be us advocating for what we want. But it’ll be a north coast coalition because otherwise, you know how that goes. Somebody will think you’re trying to steal my … money for your tunnel.” “I think our hope, primarily, is that we build a better case … for the region to want to complete this effort sooner rather than later,” Sinnott said. “So we may poke into a couple of areas that we haven’t poked into before but it’s nice to get all the information that’s already

been developed so we’re not having to start from ground zero.” SANDAG staff included funding for the feasibility study in the upcoming budget because the agency is working on an update to its regional transportation plan. The long-term goal is to remove the tracks from the bluff by 2050. In addition to being in danger of collapsing during a major bluff failure, they pose a safety risk for pedestrians. There is approximately one death per month on the tracks along the San Diego coastal corridor, including about three in one recent year in Del Mar. To increase safety, North County Transit District last year began stepping up enforcement efforts by issuing warnings and citations to people crossing the tracks at undesignated areas. That has angered many residents and visitors because in Del Mar the only legal crossing along the 1.6-mile coastline is at Coast Boulevard. As a result, in most of the city, the tracks create a barrier, limiting access to the beach and tempting people to cross illegally and unsafely. In 2014, SANDAG’s regional transportation plan put the estimated cost of a tunnel and double tracking at $1.3 billion, meaning nothing will happen overnight. “It’s going to be a long process,” Worden said. “But this is a very key first step. The 2018 fiscal year budget is scheduled for adoption by the SANDAG board of directors May 26.

sure proper mineralization of the water using good calcium.” The LivingWater unit is easy to install to your existing faucet and doesn’t require any special plumbing. “Having a LivingWa-

ter is like owning a limitless supply of alkaline, ionized, healthy water,” Wingenbach said. “You get pH-balancing, healthy alkaline water for drinking and cooking, strong alkaline water for washing vegetables, and acidic water for cleaning.” LivingWater has eight different pH levels, ranging from 4.0 acidic water to 10.0 alkaline water. “I see a lot of interest in alkaline water locally,” Wingenbach said. “I see people lugging around and filling up 5-gallon jugs at the local water depots. With the LivingWater, you make an initial investment but it will end up paying for itself after a few years. And you don’t have to leave your house to get the best tasting and healthiest water available.” Wingenbach is a believer because he has had his own LivingWater machine for nearly seven years. “All you need to do is replace the filters once a year,” he said of the maintenance required. The filters are easy to remove and can be replaced with a simple twist and lock design. “The LivingWater can last 10 years. I personally am so glad

I made the investment. I really think I feel better today than I did 25 years ago.” He believes so much in the product that he has a proposition for buyers. “I will assist in setting up the living water machine,” Wingenbach said. “Try it for 10 days and see for yourself. If you decide it’s not for you, you can return the machine for a full refund, no questions asked. There is zero risk to you. “ The LivingWater retails for $2,199.00, and comes without any worry about complicated or intense maintenance. “LivingWater is designed for easy maintenance,” Wingenbach said. “It has an automatic cleaning cycle every 12 minutes of use.” The unit also comes with a five-year limited warranty. Now through April 30, 2017 Wingenbach is offering readers of The Coast News $100 off the price of the unit as well as free maintenance for one year, free shipping, a replacement filter set and a complete cleaning kit.

1-2-3. But that’s for those looking to pile on. Instead, look at what’s piled atop the order. Giddy-up. Guts. Guile. Those are the three things to look for in the three Friars leading the lineup: Travis Jankowski, Manuel Margot and Wil Myers. “To me it’s an exciting brand of baseball,’’ manager Andy Green said. There’s never been a skipper more appropriately named for the can-I-see-your-ID Padres. While Myers is the youthful face of the franchise after signing the richest deal in team history, Jankowski and Margot are the kiddies. But what all three have in common is attacking this great game in a similar manner. It’s to get on base and get on the rivals’ nerves. “They can bunt, they can steal, they can slash, they can move the ball around the yard,’’ Green said. “It’s a fun top three of the order.’’ It’s clear the Padres enter most games undermanned, and where’s the joy there? When you’re paying more players not to punch the Petco Park clock than those dressing in its clubhouse that can be a problem. There’s no sugarcoating it. The Padres are a safe bet to run their consecutive-season streak to seven of finishing under .500. Come this fall, they may be deep on the wrong side of the ledger. But it’s baseball, where there’s a surprise around every curveball. Few though expect

the Padres to zigzag their way into contention, especially in the daunting NL West. So if the fresh-faced Padres really are heading south — unlike the Chargers, who pointed their compass north — the ride figures to be bumpy. Still, baseball can be fun even if the score might not confirm it. I’m focusing on Jankowski, Margot and Myers to keep my summer baseball candle flickering. Jankowski, who hit .245 last year while swiping 30 bags, has shifted from center field to left. Margot is roaming the great expanse in center, where his quicks are put to the test. Between them, not many fly balls are expected to return to the pitcher with grass stains. “Travis and Manny have a ton of athleticism,’’ Green stressed. “There are a ton of reasons to believe in those guys.’’ The Padres always keep the faith but they didn’t retain All-Star closer Craig Kimbel in 2015. He was peddled to Boston for much more than a hill of beans. Margot was the big prize among the four prospects headed to San Diego. In putting this latest Padres puzzle together, he’s a piece that must fit snugly. So while this year is likely a sprint to the bottom, don’t lose focus on the lineup’s beginning. If speed kills, maybe the Padres can collect a pelt or two. “I think each one of them would claim to win that race,’’ Green said. “But I think I will put Wil in the three-spot, just like I did in the lineup. “Jankowski and Margot? That would be fun to watch.’’ Just maybe that goes for the Padres as well — at least up top. Contact Jay Paris at Follow him @jparis_sports on Twitter.

y family started me on sips of red wine when I was a mere 4-year-old. It was an Italian family in a neighborhood that raised me and most of my relatives, in Boston, Mass. My mother came from a family of nine and my father a family of 11, so you can just imagine what it was like at a Saturday night get-together with baked beans and hot dogs or 10-gallons of Italian sauce and pasta pans.

ESCONDIDO — Hundreds of dancers, dancing fans and generous people attended the California Center of the Arts, Escondido’s second annual “Dancing With Our Stars” Fundraiser on April 1. The theme of the evening was derived from the popular show, “Dancing with the Stars,” which airs on ABC. Center for the Arts Development Advisor Tina Inscoe explained it’s a format everyone seems to enjoy: “It’s just so popular,” she said, adding, “you get community leaders to pair up with local celebrities.” Once paired off, the dancers compete for the People’s Choice award, the Judges’ Choice award, and others. “Each couple does two dances,” explained Inscoe. “The first is ballroom, they all pick their own music. The second is freestyle — which can be anything from Hip-Hop to Tango — and at the end they’re judged on both.” The winners for the night were San Diego Opera singer Priti Gandhi, who paired with Dan Gibbons, and Hidden Val-

ley Orthodontics owner Dr. Christy Fortney, who danced with Jose Jaimes, CEO of Tierra Caliente Academy of the Arts. Gandhi/Gibbons were awarded the Judges’ Choice, while Fortney/Jaimes took home the People’s Choice award. Fortney was also awarded the Ballroom Benefactor award, recognizing her fundraising efforts for the Center. In addition to the dancing, funds were raised through ticket sales, sponsorships and a silent auction. The $100,000 raised surpassed expectations for the evening, as well as besting the $85,000 raised at the inaugural “Dancing With Our Stars” fundraiser in 2016, according to Inscoe. This fundraiser was one of many held throughout the year, to raise money for community outreach and education programs that serve more than 75,000 members of the community each year. The money raised will fund several programs and free events throughout the year, including art discovery field trips for students in grades K-12, which help expose students to art, drama, music, and — appropriately — dance.

e are peeking through the large, l o c k e d glass doors of the Catalina Island Museum in Avalon, watching a team assemble an 18-foot, mystical glass sculpture called Blue Ridge Chandelier in the museum’s lobby. The piece is just one of several created by renowned artist Dale Chihuly that will be featured at the museum through Dec. 11. It is a few days before the exhibit opens and the museum is closed until the installation is complete, so we feel a bit nefarious watching as Chihuly’s team works. They carefully, carefully slide the translucent blown-glass pieces onto the metal skeleton. I soon learn that we aren’t the only ones with noses pressed against the glass. This exhibit is a big deal for islanders and the museum, which until now, has focused mostly on the area’s history. “Most of the people in Avalon hardly ever leave the island, and when they do, it’s to visit the doctor or for some other appoint-

We are an underserved community in this respect.” Just getting the Chihuly pieces to Avalon is a story in itself. “The logistics have been interesting,” Fornasiere says. Ten thousand pounds of blown glass and steel armature were loaded on to two 53-foot trucks in Washington state. When the boxes arrived in Long Beach, they were reloaded onto four trucks that were loaded onto barges that were unloaded in Avalon. In all, seven Chihuly pieces will be displayed throughout the 18,000-square-foot museum, many times larger than the former 1,500-squarefoot space. Now, one of two large galleries focuses on island history. Among the treasures are 10,000 photos and negatives that chronicle island life from the early 1880s, including pictures of William Wrigley, the chewing gum magnate who bought Catalina in 1919; the many seasons that the Chicago Cubs, which Wrigley owned, held spring training on the island; Natalie Wood, who died mysteri-

Springtime means rattlesnakes REGION — Spring brings out rattlesnakes following winter hibernation. Your Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) is offering pet owners a few simple rules to help avoid snakebite. “Sunset is when you’re most likely to encounter a rattlesnake,” said RCHS spokesman John Van Zante. “People need footwear that gives protection. Keep your dog on a leash and on a well-used trail. And carry a stick. Hitting the bushes can scare snakes away.” Other basic rules tips that can save pets and their people: • Don’t go places where there are likely to be snakes • Don’t put your paws, hands or feet where you can’t see (like under a log or rock) • Look before you leap. Step on a rock or log instead of jumping over it • Take your cell phone for emergency (not to talk or text while you hike) • If you stop to rest, look before you sit • Be careful around water. Snakes can swim and they look like sticks in the water.

• If you see a snake ... leave it alone. Van Zante says that a rattlesnake’s strike distance can be one-third to one-half the length of its body and it’s faster than a human eye can see. What should you do if you or your pet are bitten by a rattler? Try to remain calm. If you panic or run, it spreads the venom faster. And get to a doctor ASAP. “Try to remember what the snake looks like. Your veterinarian or emergency room attendant will want to know how big, what color, shape of head, and anything else you can tell them,” Van Zante said. “We’ve also heard of people who pick up what they think is a dead snake, only to find that it’s resting. And even if it’s freshly dead, the bite-reflex can still be there. Leave it alone.” And that old myth about sucking the venom out of a snake bite – that’s a myth, Van Zante said.

KAABOO Del Mar announces 2017 lineup By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Featuring musical entertainment from rock, rap and R&B to oldies, pop and a basketball MVP, this year’s KAABOO Del Mar has something for everyone. The lineup, announced March 23, includes Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Pink, Muse, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, David Guetta, Ice Cube, Jason Derulo, Alanis Morissette, Jackson Browne, Kesha, The Wallflowers, Eric Burdon and the Animals, Michael McDonald, Smash Mouth, Dave Mason and Fishbone, to name a few. Also scheduled to appear at the three-day event Sept. 15-17 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds is DJ Diesel, better known as NBA star Shaquille O’Neal. Additional performers, as well as the comedy lineup, will be announced in the coming months. Described by organizers as an “adult escape” arts and entertainment “mix-perience,” KAABOO features about 100 acts on several stages and includes an onsite pool, a sand beach complete with cabanas, massages, hair and makeup services, hot shaves, an art fair and art exhibits. Culinary choices are provided by local restaurants, with fried fair food

Anyone who already bought tickets can send the confirmation code to the Lions ( so the group gets credit. Going into its third year, KAABOO has not been without past mishaps. A perfect storm of atmospheric conditions on the final day of the inaugural event in 2015 resulted in noise complaints from as far away as Carmel Valley, where residents said their windows shook and they could clearly hear song lyrics. Organizers went to great lengths to avoid a repeat the following year, including hiring a sound engineering team with members who hold doctorate degrees. In 2016 they were fairly successful when it came to reducing noise, but there were parking and traffic problems and complaints about ride-sharing access and surge pricing. And when two popular concerts ended almost

simultaneously and crowds from both performances tried to enter anther show one law enforcement officer ended up on the ground, which kicked off a police response that included a hovering helicopter. In response to previous issues, some of the venues and stages will be relocated for better accessibility and a new director of security with experience working at large venues has been hired. This year will feature a re-engineered traffic flow plan and improved parking will include additional training for lot attendants. The drop-off and pickup area for ride-hailing services will be expanded, and KAABOO organizers are working with those companies to address surge pricing. Other improvements will include additional restrooms in centralized locations, an increased janitorial staff and more ID checkpoints, bars and bartenders in several popular areas. A total of about 50,000 people attended the inaugural event, less than half of what organizers hoped for. The average attendance last year was approximately 30,000 patrons per day. Ticket sales have always been planned to be capped at 40,000 a day.

Don Was and The Band play on By Dave Gil de Rubio

When the 1978 concert documentary “The Last Waltz” was released, a then-unknown Don Was and his nine-months-pregnant wife watched the film in a Detroit theater. The loud music put her into labor and his first son, who grew up to become a drummer, was born the next day. It was one of a number of chapters involving The Band that would come to be part of Was’ musical life that has most recently culminated with The Last Waltz 40 Tour. The idea behind this string of live music dates that commemorates the

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame quintet’s farewell concert appearance was born out of conversation between Was, Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule/Allman Brothers Band) and concert promoter Keith Wortman (Blackbird Productions). “We were trying to figure out something cool to do at JazzFest (in New Orleans) last year. So we figured we’d play ‘The Last Waltz’,” Was recalled. “As we rounded out the personnel, just the idea of having Michael McDonald and Jamey Johnson as part of a three-part harmony stack—I had to hear it.

It was really unexpected and it could have been a train wreck between it being a lot of different people with a lot of different styles. But it just gelled from the first rehearsal, where there was a really nice chemistry. “We knew it would be a good show, but what we didn’t anticipate was the audience response,” Was said. “When you looked out at the first 10 rows, everybody is standing up and singing along to every song from the first bar, really. I’d forgotten how deeply ingrained these songs are in the American TURN TO DON WAS ON 20

Hunter, who was first elected in 2008, is reported to have paid back some $60,000 of the money charged to his campaign expenses. Noah Bookbinder, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which brought a complaint to the ethics office last April regarding Hunter’s spending, issued a statement on the House Ethics Commission deferring the investigation saying, “Rep. Hunter has shown a blatant disregard for the rules, spending tens of thousands of dollars from his campaign for his personal benefit.

Two intriguing wineries that I re-visited at the show were Galante Vineyards in the Carmel Valley of Monterey County and Coomber Family Wines from here in San Diego County. Jack Galante’s wine club is the “Galante Gang,” and he is the true embodiment of the cowboy philosophy of the west. His advice: “Always drink upstream from the herd.” Think about that! His family has a long history in the Monterey area. Galante’s great grandfather was the founder of the town of Carmel and he later built the Pines Inn and the Highlands Inn. In Jack’s youth he worked on his father’s 700acre cattle ranch in Carmel Valley, most of which was converted to wine grapes and then a winery founded by Jack in 1994.

counts for allegedly stealing government funds, fraud, making false statements and false tax returns, according to a Chicago Tribune story. “We are glad to see the Office of Congressional Ethics voted unanimously for an investigation and will be closely following the FBI’s criminal investigation into Congressman Hunter,” Bookbinder’s statement concluded. Debbie Resler, a resident in Hunter’s district, said on Saturday that she’s been pretty much underwhelmed by his level of maturity and attitudes on a whole number of issues. As one of the rally participants, Resler said she was hoping to accomplish two things with these continued protests: “One is making him realize that for as long as he remains in office that he needs to represent all of his constituents, and he seems like he’s been afraid to listen to the viewpoint of a number of his constituents if it

differs from his own,” she said. “But he represents us as well as the others. “And I think the other thing is that he’s been pretty complacent, and I think he feels like he’s entitled, and owns his own seat, and I don’t think that’s the case. I think this is a big wake up call for him.” With the investigation into Hunter underway, Resler said she could understand if the charges were an isolated event. “I can understand if Hunter’s wife, (who also serves as his campaign manager) or somebody pulled the campaign (credit) card by accident, but the number and the scope and the length of time…that’s not an accident. It’s either incredible incompetence or complete indifference. I don’t want either in my elected official.” Gregory A.

I asked Skip how things were going for their many wine brands. “Our brand with the English bulldog in the pink tutu on a skateboard, Skater Girl, is exploding,” he said. “We’ve got over 50 locations in the area.

Waiting in the wings are new brands Lemon Cake, a Russian River Chardonnay and the Coomber Vintner’s Collection along with others. Coomber has an interest in the newly renovated Witchcreek urban winery in downtown Carlsbad, now drawing a lot of attention. Learn more at
