City joins Trump’s lawsuit Escondido becomes the latest to oppose Calif. sanctuary laws By Steve Puterski
permit its sale,” Pieper said. “Individual consumption is generally legal anywhere in the state, but its sale and commercial cultivation are not.” Pieper said there does seem to be some confusion about the legality of marijuana in Vista. He said the sale of marijuana in Vista has always been illegal and it still is. “The only reason there is ‘confusion’ on the matter is because illegal storefront mari-
Local officials are pushing back against the state of California. The Escondido City Council voted 4-1 on Wednesday to support a federal government lawsuit which takes aim at California’s sanctuary state protections. Escondido Mayor Sam Abed, along with Councilman John Masson, introduced the resolution during the April 4 City Council meeting. “I was elected mayor to uphold the constitution and keep our community safe,” Abed said. “Public safety is and always will be our top priority. Since 2010, we’ve removed over 2,000 illegal criminals from our community. Crime has been reduced by 33 percent and Escondido, today, is as safe as it was in 1980.” The council said the city was not joining the controversial litigation as an active participant and plans to file two amicus briefs before the April 6 deadline. The U.S. Department of Justice filed the civil suit on March 6 naming the state, Gov. Jerry Brown and Attorney General Xavier Becerra as defendants. At the core of the debate is California’s Senate Bill 54, which solidifies the state’s position as a sanctuary state. The bill was introduced by Senate leader Kevin de León on opening day of the 2017 legislative session and signed in to law by the governor in October. The bill is currently being challenged by President Donald Trump’s administration on constitutional grounds. For his part, Masson affirmed that the issue was a matter of public safety and fighting back against overreach from Sacramento, adding that local police are prohibited from assisting and dealing with illegal criminals in the city and its relationship with

Novice San Marcos winemakers tasting success as they grow By Patty McCormac
SAN MARCOS — If there were no documentation to prove it, it would hard to believe that a couple of empty nesters from the Silicon Valley with no previous wine-making experience won a silver medal for their very first batch of wine at their first ever competition. But there it is. Winemaker Malcolm Gray stands holding a bottle of the winning Sunset Red, and the certificate from the San Diego International Wine and Spirits Challenge 2018. “We were shocked,” his wife Kathryn said. “Delighted but shocked.” They had bought the Twin Oaks Valley Winery in San Marcos only five years earlier. They
had no experience at wine-making or running a winery at all. Sure, they liked wine and belonged to a few wine clubs, but that was the extent of their experience. They had been looking for a business for when they retired, Malcolm as an electrical engineer and Kathryn a business manager. They explored the possibility of a sandwich shop or bed and breakfast, but nothing captured their imagination until the opportunity to buy a winery presented itself. They first questioned their own sanity and then jumped right in. TURN TO WINEMAKERS ON 12

City attorney addresses recreational marijuana confusion By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — Though the sale of marijuana for recreational use became legal in the state of California beginning in the new year, some cities are not allowing dispensaries or commercial growing. For some consumers, these regulations mean that they are not able to buy the product legally where they live. The topic has caused a wave of confusion for some Californians. The recreational sale of cannabis is legal in the state — but not every city is allowing it.
Darold Pieper, city attorney and city prosecutor for the city of Vista, wanted to clear up the matter for Vistans. Pieper said that Proposition 64, which legalized recreational marijuana, expressly provides that cities and counties may regulate and completely ban marijuana businesses. So, what does that mean to Vista residents? Pieper said that some cities, such as San Diego, have decided to regulate and permit the sale of marijuana. “Most other cities, including Vista, do not

ICE has disappeared. “I want to bring back control to our community,” Masson said. “When we had control, we weren’t divisive. We were deporting illegal criminals, not illegal immigrants working hard.” Masson went on to chide those who threw accusations of racism and discrimination.
“It’s not about race, xenophobia or hatred,” Masson said. “It’s simply about control.” Councilwoman Olga Diaz was the lone dissenting voice on the council. “There is absolutely zero to be gained from the city’s action today other than political grandstanding,” Diaz said. “SB 54 is about creating better relationships with law enforcement.” Pedro Rios, director of
the American Friends Service Committee, along with several other pro-immigration supporters, spoke about Trump’s action and rhetoric toward illegal immigrants. Rios said the mayor and the other council members in support do not reflect values of the people of Escondido. Rios added that Mayor Abed is out of touch and merely following Trump’s fear-based agenda. Lilian Serrano, chair-
woman of the San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium, said the state has already won, taking a jab at Abed and the council. Still, she called the council’s efforts xenophobic, and rebuked those who support mass deportation of illegal immigrants. “They are still human beings and they deserve to live with dignity,” Serrano said. Trump supporter and Patriot Movement AZ
member Jennifer Harrison arrived from Phoenix, Arizona, to voice her support of deporting illegal immigrants. Harrison said the issue isn’t about race, but rather following the law and that those who support illegal immigrants are “protecting criminals and killers.” Harrison also brushed off being called a racist. “It’s a diversion tactic,” she said. “These catch and release policies
put criminals back on the street. Let the agencies (federal and local) work together.” Cities across California are starting to address the issue of immigration and SB 54. Huntington Beach recently voted to sue the state and Los Alamitos voted to exempt itself from the law. San Diego County is considering taking similar action and will discuss the issues during a closed session in the coming weeks.

One census question could do long-lasting damage
Education remains key to reducing opioid tragedies By Patricia Bates and Summer Stephan
The opioid epidemic has negatively impacted the lives of millions of people across the nation, and San Diego County is no exception. You may know of stories similar to Aaron Rubin from Escondido, who overdosed on OxyContin and a variety of other prescription drugs. Aaron was in a coma for three-and-a half weeks and woke up as a quadriplegic who now needs 24-hour care. However, Aaron is one of the lucky ones – he survived. Aaron and his mother, Sherrie, began speaking out about the deadly consequences of prescription drugs. They founded the Hope2gether Foundation to help save lives through education. Stories like Aaron’s reinforce our belief that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and this is especially true when it comes to reducing opioid abuse. According to the California Department of Public Health, there were 1,925 opioid-linked overdose deaths in the state in 2016, with 239 in San Diego County alone. As a state, we must do better. While enhanced law enforcement efforts are necessary in confronting the opioid epidemic, we also believe that education is one of the most powerful weapons we can wield to save lives. That is why we have joined forces to craft legis-
lation to help save people from having to experience what Aaron and others have endured. Senate Bill 1109 (Bates) seeks to achieve four objectives: • Require continuing medical education of all opioid prescribers to include the risks associated with opioid use; • Require placement of warning labels on opioid prescription bottles that address the risk of addiction and overdose; • Require physicians who prescribe opioids to a minor to discuss risks with the minor’s parent or guardian and obtain consent before issuing the first prescription; and • Require youth sports organizations and schools that have athletic programs to annually give a document highlighting the risks of opioid use to each student-athlete and their parent/ guardian, and to have the student-athlete and their parent/guardian sign the document. While SB 1109 will not solve California’s opioid epidemic on its own, it can help as part of a broader legislative effort. We crafted SB 1109 based on part of our conversations with grieving parents who have lost young kids to the opioid epidemic. It was clear to us that education must be part of any successful effort to reduce addiction. Education is important because while opioids can effectively treat pain, they also affect the brain and
can create powerful dependency in a short amount of time. Some patients wrongly assume their opioid prescription is safe since their doctor prescribed it, giving a false sense of security that can ultimately lead to death. SB 1109 brings common sense solutions that protect consumers by telling them the truth about the risk of addiction and overdose from prescription opiates. It also focuses on the duty of medical professionals and athletic school-based programs on educating and informing minors and their parents about the risks of opiate-based pain medications. We believe our legislation can help reduce deaths in San Diego County and throughout the state, especially when paired with other efforts to reduce illegal opioid suppliers and improve access to treatment. California needs to attack the opioid crisis in a preventative manner before it reaches the treatment stage to truly make a dent in the epidemic. As the classic saying goes, “Knowledge is Power.” We hope a bipartisan majority of the Legislature will agree and approve SB 1109 as it moves through the legislative process. Patricia Bates is the state senator for the 36th District, which includes North County. Summer Stephan is San Diego County’s District Attorney.
resident Trump may just have struck his most effective and longest-lasting blow of a seemingly constant conflict with California, the state that cost him a popular vote victory in 2016 and continues to resist his policies most. As with many of Trump’s anti-California moves, like his abortive attempt to defund the ongoing construction of an earthquake early warning system, he allowed one of his cabinet members to announce the latest tactic: adding a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. Census questionnaire. California politicians and immigrant rights groups instantly recognized the move for what it is, “an attempt to suppress the political influence of people of color,” in the words of the Los Angeles-based Latino Victory Project. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra and the state’s top election official, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, instantly filed a lawsuit to strike the question from the Census, denouncing it as unconstitutional. Twelve other states quickly followed. But the states will likely lose that legal battle. For the Constitution says nothing about what questions the Census Bureau can ask, nor even about whether the answers are confidential. All it says, in Section 2 of Article 1, is that every 10 years the government must count “the whole number of free persons … excluding Indians not taxed.” The information, it says, is then to be used for setting the number of representatives for each state in the lower house of Congress. But census information now goes far beyond that. It also determines for the next decade how much money each state gets for
california focus thomas d. elias education, highways, homeland security, health care, welfare, natural disaster preparation, sewers and much more. The more people live in your state, the more money it gets for services Congress has decided everyone in America should have. Citizenship doesn’t matter in those distributions. That’s why, every 10 years for the last half-century, California has mounted a loud campaign to convince illegal immigrants to let themselves be counted. For neither federal funding nor apportionment of congressional seats is set by the number of citizens in any state, only by the number of people living there. In short, the more fear the Trump administration can strike in California’s large undocumented immigrant populace, the less money the state will get for a host of vital functions. That’s because illegal immigrants have never completely trusted Census Bureau promises that their information will be confidential and not passed along to immigration authorities. Many fear being counted might lead to deportation, so they avoid census takers. They have even less cause for trust today, when Trump’s Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross controls the Census Bureau and didn’t promise confidentiality when he announced the citizenship question for 2020. (A similar query was used in six censuses before 1960, but obvious
undercounts became common, so the question was abandoned for the last five counts.) But Ross claimed the federal Voting Rights Act requires the government to tally “citizens of voting age to protect minorities against discrimination.” He can likely revive the citizenship question because, as the Census Bureau says on its website, “It is constitutional to include questions … beyond those concerning a simple count.” The bureau then lists several major legal decisions, including a 1999 case in which the U.S. Supreme Court held that the census is “the linchpin of the federal statistical system … collecting data on the characteristics of individuals, households and housing units.” It’s hard to see how a citizenship question violates that decision, but Becerra says it does. He adds, probably accurately, that the question is an “attempt by the Trump administration to hijack the 2020 Census for political purposes,” including diminishing both the federal money coming to California and its representation in Congress. This state already gets back far less in federal spending than it puts in the Treasury via taxes, and Republican politicians in some other states are crowing that the citizenship question could cost California as many as three congressional seats, plus three electoral votes. This all adds up to a savvy move by Trump to strike lasting harm against his political nemesis California, harm that could far outlast his own time in office.

Council updates city goals, focuses on homeless strategic plan By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — City Council updates its goals every two years, and did so most recently at an open workshop March 6. Vista residents were invited to provide their input at the beginning of the workshop. Department directors were on hand to answer questions from the city manager or other council members regarding specifics such as programs and activities. Many of the city goals from 2018-2020 mirrored those from 2016-2018. Looking ahead, the itemized goals included Fiscal Responsibility; Homeless Strategic Plan; Continue to Improve Flow of Traffic, Reduce Congestion, and Improve Roads and Sidewalks; Continue to Decrease Blight and Improve City's Image; Econom-
ic Development; Public Safety; Parks and Recreation; and Maintain Standards for Multi-Family Housing. New to the city goals was the Homeless Strategic Plan. Communications Officer Andrea McCullough said that across San Diego County there has been an increase in homelessness. “The council wanted to come up with something on how to address this,” McCullough said. “The city already gives funding to CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) funds.” McCullough said that some of these funds go toward affordable housing or can be used to support organizations that help the homeless, such as Operation Hope or Solutions for Change. “The City Council wanted to
come up with a comprehensive plan,” she said. Now that the council has determined this as a goal, McCullough said that City Manager Patrick Johnson and his staff will come up with the objectives to meet those goals. Once a plan is mapped out, it will be presented to the council for consideration. It’s a collaborative approach in which council members will then provide their input and further direction. McCullough also said “sidewalks” was added to the 20182020 goals under the category of Traffic and Roads. “One of the 2016-2018 goals was to improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and continue to improve our roads, which is still a priority,” McCullough said.
During the 2016-2018 period, McCullough said, the engineering department was already working on sidewalks with limited funds from Safe Routes to School grants. She also said the city was incorporated in 1963, but before that time it was county incorporated, and there weren’t a lot of connecting sidewalks. When the city incorporated, there were older homes that didn’t have sidewalks, so there are still areas without them, she said. Therefore, the council wanted to add the goal to this category. Another slight difference between the 2016-2018 and 20182020 goals was the change from Continue Fiscal Sustainability to Fiscal Responsibility. “The council agreed they had achieved the emergency reserves
that they want,” McCullough said. “Then every year, trying to reach a 30 percent reserve. This year in the budget year, before July 1, the city will have reached and anticipated reaching its 30 percent emergency reserves goal. So, their goal instead of continued fiscal sustainability is now fiscal responsibility.” McCullough said although there was a discussion about removing the line altogether because the 30 percent was achieved, it was decided that the item would stay with a minor rewording. “The city is very fiscally responsible regarding budget, but other members decided they wanted to keep that and have it as a goal because they wanted to make sure the public knew that,” McCullough said.
Death penalty out in trial of alleged gang member charged with murder REGION — Prosecutors won't seek the death penalty against an alleged gang member charged in a shootout in Escondido that killed a woman driving home from church, it was announced March 29. Dionicio Torrez Jr., 25, is charged with murder, a special circumstance gang allegation, attempted murder of rival gang members, and shooting at an occupied vehicle in connection with the death of 55-year-old Catherine Kennedy. Torrez will face life in prison without parole if convicted at a trial scheduled for May 22, said Deputy District Attorney Laurie Hauf.
The victim was found shortly after 9 p.m. on March 7, 2017, alongside eastbound Grand Avenue near Midway Drive, suffering a gunshot wound to her head. Her silver Toyota Camry crashed into a parked vehicle. Investigators believe Kennedy was struck by a stray bullet fired by one of at least two gang members shooting at each other. Kennedy was taken to Palomar Medical Center, where she died. A 16-year-old boy was also arrested in the case and charged in Juvenile Court.
Pieper wants Vistans to know that as of the end of December 2017, their department had a total of four criminal cases in process. These cases also involved multiple defendants, he said. “We cannot comment on open investigations, but there are several businesses adve r t i s i n g that they sell m a r iju a n a in Vista,” he said. “Most of those purport to provide delivery services only, which are also illegal, while around a half dozen others indicate they are storefront operations.” Pieper said the city of Vista has had great success in shuttering illegal marijuana businesses. Closures can vary ranging from one day up to one year or more. Pieper said the timing is dependent on many factors, such as the level of cooperation among property owners and attorneys or the speed of a case moving through the criminal justice system. “We do not have a vendetta against these businesses; rather, they seem to have a vendetta against Vista and its lawful ordinances and policies,” Pieper said. “We will keep enforcing its laws to keep order and preserve the safety and quality of life for its residents.”

juana stores have regularly opened and operated in defiance of Vista’s complete ban on marijua na-related land uses in the city,” Pieper said. “Vista does not, and cannot, regulate individual consumption. We do, however, prohibit its sale and commercial cultivation in the Darold Pieper city.” Pieper said even though Vista’s zoning regulations prohibit the sale of marijuana, businesses have been in violation. At the end of 2017, Pieper said his department closed 46 such cannabis dispensaries, including three growing operations. And with these closures have come legal consequences. “Business owners and their landlords face civil and potential criminal penalties for operating these businesses,” Pieper said. “Potential criminal violations include violations of the Vista Zoning Code, the California Penal Code and the Health & Safety Code. The city has prosecuted business owners and landlords under all of these authorities, and we commonly receive guilty pleas from the defendants.

Parents’ Night Out gives adults free time By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — After the hustle and bustle of a busy week, Vista parents can now have a few hours to themselves to kick off the weekend. The city of Vista program is called Parents’ Night Out and its hosted at the Jim Porter Recreation Center. The monthly program is relatively new having launched in August 2017. At the recreation center, boys and girls stay busy with games, activities and crafts from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The age range for participants is between 5 to 11 years. The cost is $10 per child. Depending on the month, Parents’ Night Out program dates land on a Friday or a Saturday. The next program date falls on Saturday, April 21. “The activities are age appropriate, so there will not be 11-year-olds getting bored by 5-yearold activities and crafts,”
T he C oast News - I nland E dition
city Communications Officer Andrea McCullough said “Everything is age appropriate so the 5-yearold and 6-year-olds will be entertained with games and activities, and then the older children will also have age-appropriate games and activities to partake in.” So far, the feedback has been good and the program has been very well-attended. Registration is encouraged in advance, but signups can occur up to the day before each event. McCullough said Parents’ Night Out is a great opportunity for adults and children. “Parents can drop the kids off and visit downtown Vista or go see a movie,” she said. “Or if it’s during the summer months, they can go to a Moonlight production show. Parents spend time around Vista since there are many adult activities in the downtown area.”
New restaurants are also opening in the area. McCullough said the city came up with this program concept because Vistans are always looking for new entertainment opportunities. Keeping the children engaged and having fun while their parents have a few hours to themselves seemed like the perfect fit. “There was a need for it,” McCullough said. Food is not provided at the recreation center, so parents are asked to feed their children before the drop-off. Children can also bring their own snack and water. Registration for Parents’ Night Out is available through Sept. 22. Parents interested in this program can visit http://www.cityof v ista.com / ser v ices / city-departments /recreation-comm-services/parents-night-out or call Kim Crawford at (760) 6435275.
Eureka! Earlobes discovery small talk jean gillette
may have been born a couple of centuries too late. I was told, at 40, I had reached “the age of wisdom.” If I can remember who told me that, I may have to chide them severely. I was confident that when I got older, at some magical point, I would finally know everything and could relax a little. Meanwhile the world got busy creating a gazillion more things I need to know, in addition to the existing ones. I had really counted on it meaning I would stop making stupid mistakes, but that was all bait and switch advertising. Every now and then I have a moment that smacks of wisdom, but there has been no noticeable drop in my stupid-mistake quotient. I call “no fairsies.” My latest painful, be-
lated lesson reveals that my upbringing lacked sugar daddies and/or jewelry salesmen. I did not know about gold. I had learned the three Cs of diamonds, but absolutely did not understand the differences in gold karats. I thought karats just meant hardness of pure gold. Wrong, wrong, wrong. To my surprise, I have found that pure gold only comes one way. It is way too soft to use for jewelry, so other metals have to be added for strength. Please don’t tell me you already knew that. My ignorance didn’t bite me until this very year, when I purchased some earrings I simply adore, that are 10K. What that means, I have now discovered, is that the lower the karat, the more other metals are mixed in, and my ears do not like most other metals. Apparently, my allergic ears were cool with 14K, which has some, but a lower amount of alloy. But when I downgraded to 10 parts gold with 14 parts other metal,
my lobes went into revolt. The real problem was I got a new hole pierced, going from two piercings per ear, back to one. They kept hurting for six months. I thought the problem was that the new puncture just wasn’t healing for some reason. After switching out earrings a few times, the light bulb went on. The problem wasn’t the healing, but my new, wonderful, overpriced earrings. So my wisdom-gathering continues on the subject of gold, its necessary alloys and what one can do about weird, diva earlobes. There are various dips, sprays and covers available and I have just ordered some. I just wonder what gaping hole in my knowledge base I’ll discover next. I fear I will never become the village crone.

DUI suspected in fatal crash SAN MARCOS — A woman was killed March 27 in a single-vehicle crash on a North County highway, and the man driving the car was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, authorities said. The fatal accident was reported a few minutes before 2 a.m. on westbound State Route 78 near the Barham Drive offramp, California Highway Patrol Office Tommy Doerr said. Details of what led to the crash were not immediately available, but a woman in the front passenger seat was fatally injured and pronounced dead at the scene, Doerr said. The driver, a man, was taken to a hospital with injuries of unknown severity and arrested on suspicion of DUI. His name was not immediately released. Two of three westbound lanes of SR-78 and the onramp and offramp at Barham Drive were closed for several hours following the crash, according to Caltrans San Diego and the CHP. — City News Service
In loving memory of
Erik Daniel MeisterJanuary 16, 1968 March 10, 2018
Erik Daniel Meister passed away at his home in Costa Mesa, CA on March 10, 2018 at the age of 50. Erik grew up in Encinitas, CA and then moved to Fallbrook, CA where he graduated from high school in 1985. He received a B.A. in Economics and a B.S. in Marketing from California State University, Chico where he was a proud member of Sigma Chi Fraternity and
Alpha Chi’s Ax Men. After school Erik worked as an account manager for Mini-Micro Supply and Cisco-Linksys-Belkin for many years. Erik’s infectious smile, openness to all he met, and his caring for all living creatures will be greatly missed. When he wasn’t watching his San Diego Chargers or Padres he volunteered regularly for the Special Olympics and the March of Dimes. The family is asking, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to those organizations in Erik’s name. Erik is survived by his father Bill Meister, sister Erin Meister, stepfamily David, Kathy and Ben Siegel, his uncles, aunts, cousins and many friends. Erik is preceded in death by his mother Frances Meister. A memorial service for Erik will be held on Saturday, April 7th at 2pm at the Olivenhain Meeting Hall, 423 Rancho Santa Fe Road, 92024.

REMEMBER WHEN SERVICE MATTERED?
On March 22, 2018, we lost a bright light in our lives with the passing of Laurie Bianchi. For those of us who knew Laurie, just thinking of her would bring a smile to our face along with a body shaking laugh. There was nothing timid about Laurie, for her it was either full speed or sleep. With her enormous heart, she was forever helping someone or sharing her joy of life. There is sadness with her passing and eternal joy and love for having her in our lives. Laurie is survived by her husband John Bianchi, daughter Nicole Mareno and son Anthony Bianchi. Her loving Parents, Leonard and Ann Cory of Carlsbad. Brother, Larry Cory, sister’s Linda Roskovics, and Lynette Cory.

Flu still a concern for region By Steve Puterski

Roosevelt Middle School band entertains at Senior Center By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — Musical talent from the Roosevelt Middle School Wildcat Band captured the attention of everyone at the Gloria McClellan Adult Activity and Senior Center on March 21. The 47-member band followed direction from band director Greg Anderson. “We were invited to play, and we decided to do it,” Anderson said. “These kids are getting better.” The band entertained guests for just under an hour. Donna Meester, executive director of the Gloria McClellan Center, said what made the band visit so special was that young adults
were learning to give back to the community. The children were making a connection with the senior adult population. “The day also gives our seniors the opportunity to connect with the young adults,” Meester said. “Many of them (seniors) don’t have family in town. The day also brings our seniors on a walk down memory lane remembering when their son, daughter, or they themselves were in a band.” Players from the Roosevelt Middle School Wildcat Band triggered nostalgic memories for the seniors. Meester said the band members had great energy, which was really enjoyable for everyone to experience.
REGION — Influenza is still going strong in one of the worst season’s in recent memory. Emergency room and doctor visits are up throughout the county and the latest strain of the flu is still responsible for hundreds of cases per week. According to San Diego County, 247 new cases were reported in the last week of March, with seven deaths. The total number of cases this season is 20,131 with 326 deaths. Palomar Medical Center Escondido, at 2158 Citracado Pkwy., used surge tents in January to treat hundreds of patients, according to Derryl Acosta, public relations manager. He said a typical day in the emergency room has about 280 visits, but increased flu cases grew the number to the mid- to high-300s with one day seeing more than 400 patients. Hospital staff trains quarterly for mass casualty incidents, which provided an effective system to treat flu patients, with a small percentage being admitted. Another reason for the tents was to avoid flu patients infecting other ER patients, Acosta added. The surge tents averaged between 30 to 40 patients per day with highs reaching about 50. He said the hospital saw a spike after Thanksgiving and continued into December, triggering the surge tents, which were removed before Christmas. While the average daily ER visits is about 280, Acosta said the number jumped to 313 in
San Diego County reported 247 new influenza casses in the last week of March. Courtesy photo
December, 305 in January, 296 in February and 301 in March. “In early January, the waits were up to eight hours due to the population of flu patients,” he said of the ER. “We had so many patients it overwhelmed the ER.” In addition, the ER saw more visits on weekends as patients could not see their primary care physician as most of those offices were closed. During the week of March 16, the county reported 11 deaths bringing the season’s total to 319 prior to the release of last week’s reports. Nearly all deaths had an underlying condition, the county also reported. The number of reported cases dropped to 399 from 685 the previous week, while flu patient
emergency room visits dropped from 4 percent to 3 percent. In contrast, last year 80 deaths were attributed to the flu, while the total confirmed cases tallied 5,203. The prior three-year average, according to the county, was 5,872 cases and 73 deaths. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend anyone 6 months or older get vaccinated. The immunity takes two weeks to develop. Also, the county and CDC recommend precautions such as thorough and regular hand washing; use of hand sanitizers; staying away from sick people; avoiding touching the eyes, nose and mouth; cleaning common surfaces; and staying at home when sick.

identified body parts and how many legs an insect has, and classified which animals are insects. Have you watched green fruit beetle larvae scoot along on their backs? They dig down into the soil backwards. Most kids like handling quick little roly-polys, but they learned that the correct names for them are sowbugs and pillbugs. These are not insects since they have seven pair of legs, but they are bugs that we find in our compost. Using recycled materials, pipe cleaners and markers, the kids then created their own unique bugs: praying mantis, caterpillars and butterflies. They also took home their choice from a collection of butterflies made from soda bottles. The next event for children at Alta Vista Botanical Gardens will be the April 21 Earth Day Festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This free event will include children’s nature activities, painting Earth Day rocks, music, vendors and a BBQ lunch and plants for sale.

Weir aims for historic finish in Ironman sports talk jay paris
T he C oast News - I nland E dition
ance Weir was in the record book. Then things got weird. “We were super excited, doing high-fives and everything,” Weir said. “Then the air went out of our balloon.” Weir, a paraplegic, and his pilot, Parker Berling, were the first tandem bike duo to finish in an Ironman event with a qualifying time last year when hitting the finish line last year after 56 grueling miles in Oceanside. But after being pulled aside, Team Weir got the news they were disqualified. It seemed their bike blasted through a 25-mile speed zone at 32 miles and that was a no-no. Weir, who will race again on April 7 at the Ironman 70.3 Oceanside, nods in agreement. Although his affirmation comes by mentioning the mitigating circumstances that led to the dilemma. “Our bike is so low to the ground that we didn’t see any of the signs to slow down,” he said. “We certainly didn’t do it to gain a competitive advantage. With the weight of that bike and the two bodies, we could have been going through that stretch at 55 miles an hour.” At any speed, Weir and the numerous other riders from the Challenged Athletes Foundation are an inspiration. If lucky enough to ride alongside Weir, his motivation is evident. If fortunate enough to see the pair speed by from the curb that deserves a salute, too. “We’ve got some unfinished business,” Weir said of reaching the tape in the required 5 1/2 hours to qualify as an Ironman finisher. “A lot of things have to go right with that bike. We can’t have any mechanical problems or anything like that. But that’s what makes it cool if we can do it.” Weir, of Carlsbad, is one cool cat regardless of when his arms stop making the wheels go round and round. After sustaining a spinal injury 25 years ago that left the Marines Corps Reservist unable to use his legs, Weir can’t believe where his misfortunate has taken him. He went from throwing a pity party after being hurt to being the life of the party at most CAF competitions. Weir has ridden from San
Francisco to San Diego; he also didn’t blink on a 508mile race over 48 straight hours through the Sierras. It takes a big man to stand tall after fate dealt Weir a tough hand. But instead of folding, Weir, 48, is flourishing. “I was an athlete before I got hurt and all that stopped,” Weir said. “I was battling my own demons in my own little life — severe depression, addiction and thoughts of suicide — and I didn’t realize how sports was missing from my life.” He discovered the CAF through Nico Marcolongo, its Operation Rebound coordinator. Weir’s aim changed when Marcolongo suggested he reach for his air rifle. Weir would go on to earn eight medals at the Marine Corps Trials and the Warrior Games and he participated in the Paralympic. “Because of the CAF my life had come full circle,” Weir said. “I was back in sports, it was athletics and the physical assertion that had been part of my life was back.” The CAF lends support on so many levels to those disabled and discouraged, from providing equipment to supplying a nudge when doubt creeps in. With a gentle push, the CAF got Weir back into the game. “None of us can understand how hard all of this is for Lance,” said NBA legend Bill Walton, who participates in the SF-SD trek with the CAF. “Despite that, he’s one of the greatest athletes I have ever seen.” For Weir it’s about the bike, but so much more. “This has really been a great journey when considering all the awesome people that helped get me to where I am today,” Weir said. “I feel like the luckiest guy in the world and I wouldn’t change a thing. I really mean that.” Bet against Weir at your own risk. Although he’s grounded enough to know that reaching the finishing line by that difficult standard is a daunting task. “We’re a year older now and there’s not much room for error to make it,” Weir said. “So we are holding our breath and hoping the stars are aligned for us.” Weir would be over the moon if he’s first to be classified as an Ironman finisher. Although regardless of what the race clock reads, Weir long ago proved his mettle. Contact Jay Paris at email@example.com. Follow him @jparis_sports.
Transgender Visibility Day celebrated at picnic By Promise Yee
REGION — Transgender Visibility Day was celebrated locally with a potluck picnic at Heritage Park in Oceanside on March 31. The annual worldwide celebration supports the transgender community, raises awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people and honors accomplishments of trans people whose gender identity does not match their assigned gender at birth. The local gathering was an upbeat event with music, games, a pie eating contest, a raffle and sharing of potluck dishes. This was the first year the North County LGBTQ Resource Center and city of Oceanside held a Transgender Visibility Day event. Max Disposti, North County LGBTQ Resource Center founder and executive director, said the day focused on family fun, not politics. “It’s more about people being together, bringing food and empowering trans folks in North County,” Disposti said. The event was planned a year ago. Since then, President Donald Trump has tweeted about not allowing transgender people to serve in the military. Some
Pentagon officials repeated that idea, which is cause for concern for the tens of thousands of transgender individuals serving our country, Disposti said. Disposti said there is a lot of misunderstanding around transgender identity, including that Pentagon officials are considering a diagnosis of gender dysphoria as a reason not to allow transgender to serve. Disposti said what officials do not understand is that the mental health condition is actually distress for transgendered people caused by lack of acceptance and not being able to present oneself as the gender that an individual identifies with. Discussed banning of transgender people from military service would further the condition in individuals, he said. “It’s a trauma that can be overcome by a support system, they’re creating more hysteria,” Disposti said. The city of Oceanside, which neighbors Camp Pendleton, wrote a resolution in support of transgender military personnel in January, following Trump’s initial tweets. The city resolution includes the data that an estimated 15,500 transgender
individuals served in military active duty, National Guard or Reserve in 2014, and 134,300 transgender are veterans or retired National Guard or Reserve. Also following Trump’s tweet, 56 retired generals and admirals across the country stated their support for transgender who serve our country. Transgender Visibility Day is a means to bring community members together to talk, share food and bridge understanding. “It normalizes them,” Disposti said. “They’re mothers, fathers, kids, cous-
ins, brothers, sisters — real people like everyone else.” Disposti said the day went really well, and there were close to 100 people in attendance. Some alarming statistics shared by Trans Student Educational Resources are 80 percent of trans students feel unsafe at school, and more than 58 percent of gender nonconforming students have experienced verbal harassment compared to 29 percent of their peers. The educational resources group also shared that 41 percent of trans people have attempted suicide.

Moonlight Youth Theatre alumnus directs musical comedy By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — Dedicated to offering students a production stage experience, the Moonlight Youth Theatre aims to nurture creative minds. Over the weekend of March 23 at Vista’s AVO Playhouse, the student production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” not only put on a show for audiences, but was a springboard of opportunity for aspiring students wanting to work behind the scenes. The show was part of the Moonlight Youth Theatre’s internship program and sponsored by the Vista Education Foundation. Leading the lively cast was Moonlight Youth Theatre alumnus and student director Jake Bradford. “‘The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee’ is the story of six young spellers in hopes of winning it all and the equally quirky adults that lead the bee,” said Bradford, adding it was a hilarious interactive performance. “The show was better than anything we could have asked for.” Bradford said nine cast members and a total of 28 interns helped with the production. He added that nearly most of the production team was comprised of students aged 18 and under. Bradford, 18, who has lived in Vista his entire life, graduated from Rancho Buena Vista High School in 2017. Now, he is a first-year theater major at UC San Diego. Bradford is no stranger to Moonlight Youth Theatre. He began performing with the group when he was 7. “The 25th Annu-

al Putnam County Spelling Bee” show was his first crack as a director. Moonlight Youth Theatre works with students ranging in age from 7 to 18. Bradford said Moonlight Youth Theatre has hugely shaped his life. “Many of the closest people in my life I met through MYT,” he said. “I now have the chance to work professionally as a performer with Moonlight Stage Productions, which never would have happened without my training with MYT.
MYT also made me appreciate the power of education, specifically in the arts, which is why I plan to become a theater teacher.” Bradford said Moonlight Youth Theatre is special because students have the chance to perform and learn from industry professionals in a variety of ways. Through a unique internship program, students can learn about every aspect of the theater arts, he said. According to Fred Tracey, marketing director of Moonlight Stage Productions, Moonlight Youth The-
atre produces two productions a year. One is at the AVO Playhouse and the second at the Moonlight Amphitheatre. However, due to sponsorship, Tracey said that Moonlight Youth Theatre was able to add “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” as a third production. “MYT’s internship program offers area students training to be the next generation of theater production professionals,” Tracey said. “Young people shadow professionals in their chosen area of inter-
est such as makeup, costumes and stage management. Rancho Buena Vista High School has several students participating in our program. Soon, Guajome Park Academy will be participating in our program as part of their International Baccalaureate program.” After learning from the professionals, students put their newfound knowledge to the test with a production. This internship program has been in existence since 2016. “MYT has a wide range of educational opportunities, from beginner to advanced, which makes it easy for students to jump in, regardless of experience,” Bradford said. “I think this enables students to grow at their own rate, figuring out how to balance as much as they can.” Bradford said it was a perfect educational opportunity to set up students for a career in theater. He said the skills that students learn while pursuing the arts transcend into other areas of life. One aspect is building confidence when it comes to public speaking. “The arts teach students the importance of time management,” Bradford said. “The arts teach students how to appreciate and pursue a passion. I believe any education in the arts sets up students for success in whatever path they decide to take. I think MYT has done an excellent job at showing the importance of arts education for young people and I hope the success of this program continues to touch the lives of students throughout Southern California.”

Michael, Kathryn and Malcolm Gray with some of the 17 wines they offer at Twin Oaks Valley Winery in San Marcos. The winery’s tasting room opened March 24.
WINEMAKERS CONTINUED FROM 1
Although they had to learn the business from the ground up, they had help and support from other winery owners and Lum Eisenman, a legendary winemaker and teacher who passes on his secrets to fledgling winemakers. Oh, yes, and they did take a couple of classes at UC Davis, which offers classes on grape growing and wine making. During their first harvest, they processed 30,000 pounds of grapes by themselves. “We had bruises in places we didn’t know you could get bruises,” said Kathryn Gray with a chuckle. They bottled their first batch in 2015 with encouragement from Eisenman in the form of the comment “that’s not bad.” In the meantime, while that wine was aging, life has gone on at the winery and three years have passed. The Grays lived, learned and expanded. They now offer 10 red wines, five blends
and two white wines under two labels, Twin Oaks Winery and San Marcos Winery. Son Michael, who came on board to help with the heavy lifting, also handles the wholesale marketing, distribution and has become the in-house viticulturist. His mom calls him a “godsend.” The Grays bought a home that sits just above the vineyard and they bought more vines. Malcolm Gray said he has learned much more about wine making, mostly about the commitment to it. “It requires a lot of heart,” he said. “You really want to have to be there.” He wants to be there. “I enjoy what I do,” he said. Their goal is to produce about 800 cases of wine a year and keep the business small and manageable. They are mindful of the environment and do everything they can do save and reuse water and other resources. They also stay involved with the community. Kathryn Gray was just elect-
ed president of the Friends of San Marcos, which is a group whose mission is to keep the city’s parks beautiful and inviting. The Grays opened their first tasting room at the end of March and have had many visitors who arrive by car, bicycle and even horseback. “We are considered the neighborhood winery,” Kathryn Gray said. And since their grand opening, they already have more than 20 wine club members. When the winning three-year-old wine was entered along with 1,500 hopefuls, they didn’t know what to expect from their inaugural effort. “You tell me,” said Malcolm Gray, holding the certificate and a bottle of the wine. The tasting room is open Thursday through Sunday 2 to 6 p.m. The Twin Oaks Valley winery is at 1575 Mulberry Dr., San Marcos.

near Seattle, in Woodinville, but like most others, the wine comes from such eastern districts as the Columbia Valley and Horse Heaven Hills, accounting for more than 20,000 acres, about 60 percent of all vineyard acreage in Washington. The company has collaborated to make wine with Piero Antinori, one of Italy’s most famous winemakers for Col Solare, a “Super Tuscan” ($70); and Dr. Ernst Loosen, Germany’s most famous Riesling producer, to create “Eroica” (means heroic in Italian, $18).
Intrinsic is the newest sensation from Columbia Crest ($18), created by the master winemaker Juan Munoz Oca. He was quoted as saying “I love the fact we have experimented in a funky, avant-garde way of winemaking with Intrinsic.” The zesty label color is that of a tango dancer in Oca’s home state of Argentina, painted by a street artist in New York. Aromas of plum and blackberry, are followed by silky flavors yet pliable tannins. There is a background of wildness, described as a
cross between soy sauce and black olive. Other Ste Michelle wines to try include: Canoe Ridge Cabernet 2013 ($20) and Indian Wells Red Blend 2012 ($10). Columbia Crest has a few that I consider steals. Try the H3 (Horse Heaven Hills) Red Blend 2013 ($9).

am constantly surprised and delighted by the quality of wines coming out of Washington state, without the high-profile publicity of Napa Valley and the celebrity personalities who have lifted the Napa story to great heights. The quick sip on Washington is that the wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, are deeply intense and stunningly delicious, surpassing the challenge of the rugged terrain and long, summer heat of the eastern part of the state, where the wine grapes are farmed and harvested. Washington is now the second-largest wine producing state in the country with more than 750 wineries from 13 AVA wine zones. The three most prominent, all in the east, are: the massive Columbia Valley, the Walla Walla Valley and Yakima Valley. All are protected from the incessant rainfall in and around Seattle by the Cascade mountain range, which keeps rainfall to an average 8 inches, compared to some 48 inches in the western areas like Seattle. The first commercial winery was started in 1967 featuring an enduring white varietal, Riesling. The first winery in Walla Walla was established by the Leonetti family in 1977, but the real pioneers were farmers Francesco and Rosa Leonetti, who after arrival in the U.S. from Italy, took a path that led them to Walla Walla and a 20-acre parcel of land in 1906 that would become the roots of an entire industry in the district when their descendants, Gary and Nancy Figgins, founded Leonetti Cellar. Today, their Cabernet Sauvignon is a signature style of blackberry and black tea, perfectly framed by a light touch of French oak, barreled for 22 months. It is the finishing touch of seven vineyards including the 7 Hills Old Block 1, which others would love to draw from. Other varietals in the bottle include 9 percent Merlot, 9 percent Petit Verdot and 7 percent Malbec. ($85/2,876 cases). In the constant pursuit of winemaking excellence, Leonetti does not have a public tasting room, and does not accept appointments or tours. Its mailing list for sales is closed and the wait is currently three to four years. The Washington wine industry would be nowhere near what it is without Ste Michelle and Columbia Crest, two high-profile wineries that linked up several years ago. In 2016, the two cranked out 4.6 million cases of wine. Another division, 14 Hands, surpassed 2 million cases. Its headquarters are

High-speed internet coming to libraries Vista to honor new Hall of Fame members By Joe Naiman
REGION — The 33 county library branches currently have internet service with a broadband speed of 40 megabytes per second, but an upgrade to high-speed internet will improve the download speed to one gigabyte per second. A 5-0 San Diego County Board of Supervisors vote March 27 authorized a sole-source contract with Califa Group to provide high-speed internet services at county library branches. The five-year contract has a value of $1.5 million. “I have been a huge supporter of libraries and I know their value in our
communities,” Supervisor Bill Horn said. “The countywide upgrade to a high-speed network will open up countless new opportunities for library visitors, and it comes at very little cost to the county.” The Federal Communications Commission has an E-Rate Program which subsidizes 85 percent to 90 percent of the costs for access to high-speed internet service for libraries and educational institutions. The county’s projected expense (based on an 85 percent subsidy) of $225,000, or $45,000 annually, will be funded by the county’s general fund revenue. The county has provided free internet access
for library patrons since 1994, and currently personal computers available for public use and free wireless fidelity access are available at all branches. The California Research and Education Network is operated by a nonprofit consortium of research and education institutions, and in 2013 the State Library of California funded group access for California’s public libraries to join the network.

Patrick Swayze’s Legacy Lives On March 30, 2018 - Government at all levels…Local, State and Federal…have made stressful reductions in funding for the Arts. The Swayze Foundation has been established by Charlene and Don Swayze to help those kids and special adults who have been caught in the middle with little or no funds or outlets for their pursuits in dance, sports, the arts, equestrian and animal therapies. Don’s brother, the late Patrick Swayze is a famed actor for his roles in Dirty Dancing, Point Break, Roadhouse and many other acclaimed movies. Don’s mother, Patsy, was a famed dance instructor for many Hollywood Stars who also gave tirelessly of her time to introduce dance to up and coming artists. Patsy’s dance academy literally had more students on scholarship than paying students. Patsy was a giver and volunteering was always a mainstay for both of Don and Patrick’s parents. Don’s father, Jesse, was instrumental in financing Patsy’s dance academy as well as volunteering to coach his kids in sports. Carrying on the tradition of “giving and volunteering” Don and Charlene have set up the Swayze Foundation to continue the legacy of helping others, just as Don’s parents did. Charlene Swayze, Don’s wife, has always been a philanthropist. Even as a very young child, Charlene would collect for UNICEF instead of trick or treating for candy. She would even ask for spare change for UNICEF! Every March Charlene would also collect for the March of Dimes charity to help newborns in need. As a child, Charlene would put on her Pantomime costume to volunteer and perform for the Muscular Dystrophy organization. Growing up in Campbell CA, a small town/city in
It’s the Swayze Way! “Swayze Baby” as Patrick would say! For Patrick Swayze is an Icon who is still loved around the World! Everyone adores Patrick Swayze and now his legacy lives on through the Swayze Foundation. You too can volunteer by giving to the Swayze Foundation. Just go to www.Swayze. co (not .com but .co) to make a donation or purchase items from the Swayze Store. 100% of the sale proceeds will go to The Swayze Foundation to gift scholarships for children as well as adults in need! Among other items available are the hand-made the heart of Silicon Valley, she was Gratitude Stones which are handraised by honorable parents who taught Charlene to volunteer and crafted by the special clients of donate to good causes. “My parents California Spectrum Care which is an were always volunteering and giving adult day program for Special needs to help those in need. She now says adults.
“it is who I am now”! Later in life while Charlene had her own dance and gymnastic studio, she gave many scholarships to children who wanted to learn but could not afford it. For decades Charlene has tithed her income to give to others. “Giving a portion of my income to those in need are the first checks I write at the beginning of each month”! I give to those in need religiously. I have sponsored many many children all over the world for decades! Besides being a successful actor in his own right, volunteering is what Donny has always felt a calling for. Don has been volunteering as an acting teacher for many years. Don is also a gracious giver. Over the years he has donated Sky diving equipment, cars, motorcycles, bicycles and cycling gear. Don and Charlene are a benevolent, class act! Together they have established The Swayze Foundation to continue the Swayze Legacy of giving. It is who they are!
Visit www.swayze.co to purchase your Swayze merchandise or simply donate to The Swayze Foundation today. You, through your generous actions, will help give scholarships to those kids and special adults who cannot afford it. You too can become a part of The Swayze Legacy today! Swayze Inc and The Swayze Foundation have been established to give back and to Honor the Swayze name, their Legacy and the Arts!

News of the Weird PETS ON A PLANE
In the same week that a dog perished after a United Airlines flight attendant insisted it be stored in an overhead compartment on a flight from Houston to New York City, another family's pet was lost by the beleaguered carrier. Irgo, a 10-year-old German shepherd belonging to the Swindle family, was mistakenly sent to Japan instead
of Kansas City, Missouri. When Kara Swindle and her children went to pick up their dog on March 13 after flying from Oregon, they were given a Great Dane -- whose destination was supposed to be Japan. The dogs got mixed up in Denver, where they both had connecting flights. Swindle was concerned that her dog wouldn't survive the long flight back: "He is a 10-year-old dog, and he's never been on a flight before," she told KCTV 5 News. However, United had Irgo checked out by a veterinarian in Tokyo and loaded onto a private charter to
Wichita, Kansas, where he was reunited with his family on March 15. [KCTV 5, 3/14/2018] I AM NOT DEAD YET!
Constantin Reliu, 63, appealed unsuccessfully to a court in Barlad, Romania, in March to overturn a death certificate that his wife had obtained after not hearing from him for more than a decade. According to The Guardian, Reliu left Romania for Turkey in 1992 to look for employment, but neglected to keep in touch with his family. In 2003, Reliu's wife, believing he had died in an earthquake in
Turkey, argued in court for a death certificate, which didn't come to light until Reliu was deported back to Romania because of expired papers in Turkey. Upon his arrival, immigration officers explained to Reliu that he had died in 2003. His appeal failed, as the court maintained he was too late, and the ruling is final, leaving Reliu in an odd state of limbo. "I am officially dead, although I'm alive," Reliu told Romanian media outlets. "I have no income and because I am listed dead, I can't do anything." [The Guardian, 3/16/2018]

APRIL 6, 2018 DIVINE INTERVENTION
-- In a recent interview on "60 Minutes Overtime," Oprah Winfrey said that if God wanted her to run for president, "wouldn't God kind of tell me?" Oprah may have gotten her answer in the form of a letter from Jesus Christ, an 83-year-old North Waterboro, Maine, woman who started a letter-writing campaign 50 years ago to spread a message of faith and peace -around the same time she changed her name. WGMETV reported that Christ sent her letter to Winfrey on March 9, without knowledge of the media speculation, or Winfrey's wish for a heavenly sign, regarding her running for president. Christ said she sent the letter because she likes Winfrey, but "If she does (run), I'll vote for her -- that's for sure." [WGME, 3/15/2018] -- Destiny Church in Columbia, Maryland, tried a novel approach to attract new members. On March 4, the church gave away five used cars to "demonstrate God's unbelievable, nostrings-attached goodness," according to The Washington Post. The idea was hatched to increase attendance at the church's new location after several years meeting at a high school. "Who doesn't need a new car?" asked Sandy Dobson, who came with her son. "Different people have different things that bring them to Christ, to church. It doesn't always have to be traditional methods." Pastor Stephen Chandler added that Jesus himself taught that giveaways are guaranteed to draw a crowd: The biggest gatherings Christ preached to came on the two times he distributed free loaves and fishes. [Washington Post, 3/4/2018] ANIMALS WITH ISSUES
Louis, an 18-year-old male gorilla at the Philadelphia Zoo, appears to be something of a germophobe, according to the Associated Press. When he is carrying food, 6-foot-tall Louis walks on his hind legs, like a human, rather than leaning forward on his front knuckles, as gorillas usually do. Zoo curator Michael Stern says workers installed a fire hose over a mud puddle in Louis' yard, which he crosses like a tightrope to avoid getting his feet dirty. Stern says in the wild, gorillas may stand up on their hind feet to reach food or wade in a swamp, but only for a few seconds. [The Associated Press, 3/16/2018]
RESTORING FAITH IN HUMANITY
The Rev. Alex Santora of Our Lady of Grace Church in Hoboken, New Jersey, called local police on March 14 when a suspicious package was delivered to the house of worship. But after officers from the Hoboken Police Department declared it to be safe, church staff found a surprising delivery inside: a baby Jesus statue that had been stolen from the church's Nativity scene about 90 years ago. WPIX-TV reported that an unsigned note inside the package explained: The statue was stolen when the note-writer's mother was a
young girl, and it became a sort of heirloom in her family. When she died, it was passed on to the note-writer, who thought it should be returned. [WPIX-TV, 3/16/2018] EWWWWW!
Ravenna, Ohio, resident Nickolette Botsford was startled by what felt like an extra-hard cashew as she enjoyed some Planters nuts in early March. As she drove, she handed the object to her mom, who turned on the interior light in the car and realized it was a human tooth -- with dried blood on it. "I got very upset, I was crying, I threw up two or three times," Botsford told WOIO-TV. She went to a hospital, where doctors confirmed it was a human tooth and treated her for exposure to blood or bodily fluids. Botsford called Planters, and parent company Kraft Heinz sent a courier to pick up the tooth for testing. The company said it is investigating its manufacturing process and suppliers. [WOIO, 3/5/2018]
A member of the Listowel Paranormal Society in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, was surprised when police arrived at his door on March 13, inquiring about a small black box with a red wire protruding from it that had been left at Mackenzie Hall in Windsor. The Windsor Police Explosives Disposal Unit was called to the hall to investigate the box, but determined it was "safe" and not explosive. Society members had used the box on March 9 at the historic building to sweep for spirits. Jen Parker, assistant director for the society, called the box an EMF (electromagnetic field) sensor and said each team member carries one when they're looking for ghosts. The society's spokesperson also told the CBC that there were strong signs of paranormal activity at the hall, especially in the old jail, dressing room and basement. [CBC, 3/16/2018] FERULA!
Springville, Utah, resident Tiffany King has weathered devastating health problems. FOX 13 reported that she suffers from a condition for which the medication weakened her immune system. In January, she contracted pneumonia, which led to a blood infection, and complications forced doctors to amputate both her legs and arms. King, who is engaged, hopes to complete therapy and walk down the aisle with prosthetic legs and arms, which is where a unique fundraiser comes in: On March 17, King's friends announced "Phoenix Wing Productions Welcomes Harry Potter to Burlesque," a caricature of the blockbuster movies based on J.K. Rowling's books. All proceeds from the event on April 20 at the Utah Arts Alliance in Salt Lake City will go toward buying King's prosthetic limbs. "I'm going to work hard," King said, "because I have a family I need to get back to." [Fox 13, 3/17/2018]
