County’s economy expected to rise as developments continue By Steve Puterski

REGION — As the boom of commercial and industrial developments continues, the economic haul is also expected to rise. Building permits, tax revenue, business licenses and other factors will add more money to city coffers. Developers are in the midst of adding more than 1.5 million-square feet of space to North County. There are a number of major projects throughout the region including six in Carlsbad and three in Escondido. The financials, though,

are difficult to forecast, as much of the space is not yet ready for tenants. Still, Tucker Hohenstein, executive vice president San Diego Region of Colliers International and member of the San Diego North Economic Development Council, said the increase in activity is a welcome sign for the region’s economy. “There are a variety of benefits from delivery of new industrial buildings in the North County market,” Hohenstein said. Those include nearly a dozen fees associated with

construction. In addition, fees from developers help offset the cost of cities’ building departments. “Up and down the food chain, there is a lot of shortterm development,” Hohenstein said. “The fee component of the development is often overlooked as an economic benefit and often a strong benefit. There are probably over a dozen fees associated with a new project.” As for long-term benefits, all of those goods and services that flow into and out of an industrial building are valuable, Hohenstein noted. “The

reason industrial jobs are so important to the community is they are long-term providers of goods and services. The higher the wage paying jobs, the better.” “The No. 1 thing cities focus on is recruiting employers to build industrial manufacturing plants,” Hohenstein said. “It’s an economic benefit to the city. Those cities aren’t as economically prosperous as cities that have those.” Carlsbad’s place In Carlsbad,



REGION — When Donald Trump gets sworn in as the country’s 45th president next Friday in Washington, D.C., a number of North County constituents that helped to put him there, or those wanting to witness another moment in history, will be in attendance. For Rep. Darrell Issa’s office, which oversees the county’s 49th District, requests to receive free tickets to attend the 58th Presidential Inauguration began coming in immediately following the election, according to Calvin Moore, a spokesman for the longtime Republican congressman that represents the 49th congressional district in the county. Issa announced the availability of tickets through social media and online back on Nov. 15. “We had significant interest in tickets, many times more than the number of tickets we had available,” Moore said. “We encouraged people on social media and online to contact our office to have their names entered into the lottery. We have currently assigned all of our tickets from the lottery, but we do have a waiting list in case we have any cancellations.” The congressman

pulled names of constituents to receive free tickets out of a hat in early December. Of the 150 tickets that Issa’s office received to give away, the vast majority of tickets went to constituents in North County. “We also had a sizable number that were made available to constituents in the Orange County portion of our district as well,” Moore added. While their office doesn’t have any more tickets left, Moore suggested that if people were still interested in attending the event, they could contact Issa’s Washington office to get on the waiting list, where they would be updated if any new tickets became available. Last week, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) unveiled the look of the almost 250,000 tickets printed, which are color-coded for the various sections for viewing the ceremony. Moore said the tickets and the seating sections were given away randomly. Earlier this week, members of the house and the senate received the tickets to distribute to those constituents selected, according to a press release from the committee. TURN TO TICKETS ON 15

Gaspar sworn in as new Dist. 3 supervisor By Aaron Burgin

SAN DIEGO — A week after officially being sworn into office, Kristin Gaspar and two other county supervisors were honored at a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony Monday morning at the County Administrative Building. Gaspar, who recently unseated incumbent Dist. 3 Supervisor Dave Roberts, was flanked by her husband, Paul, and their three children — Addison, Payton and Carson — as San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer administered the oath of office. Gaspar’s official first day in office was on Jan. 2, however, the Jan. 9 ceremony was a chance to celebrate the elections of Gaspar, Dist. 1 Supervisor Greg Cox and Dist. 2 Supervisor Dianne Jacob. In addition to Faulconer, County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis, Chula Vista Mayor Mary Salas, Sheriff Bill Gore and former mayor and media personality Roger Hedgecock were in attendance. The former Encinitas mayor outlined her goals for her first term on the board, including what she said would be her top priority: addressing homeless-

ness in San Diego County. Comparing the looming tasks to Florence Chadwick’s historic swim across the Catali-

na Channel — her first attempt aborted just a mile away from the shore due to heavy fog — Gaspar admonished the crowd

of dignitaries from across the region to never lose sight of the goal. “As we try to take on some

challenging issues throughout the region...we won’t always be able to see the land, but the main thing is that we have to keep our goal in sight, and before we ever enter the water, we have to establish our goal,” Gaspar said. “We can’t let the fog (obstacles) stop us short of reaching our goal. We have too much at stake.” Gaspar said the her priority will be to “create accountable plans to define a goal and produce results in the challenging areas of homelessness and regional public safety.” In order to combat the rise in homelessness, which has been seen both anecdotally and in recent homeless counts, Gaspar said the county must build on the existing network of individuals and organizations committed to addressing homelessness through collaboration, advocacy and careful allocation and realignment of resources. “We have to define the goal before we ever enter the water,” Gaspar said, continuing with the Chadwick analogy. “We have to keep pushing and we have to keep swimming because we have TURN TO GASPAR ON 15

City Council OKs recycled water facility By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — Despite dozens of protests and pleas, the City Council approved, 4-1, a conditional use permit, denying an appeal in the process, to relocate a recycled water facility. The reverse osmosis facility, which will be at 1201 E. Washington Ave., will add 2 million gallons per day of treated recycled water to the city’s system. It will provide advanced treatment of recycled water from the city’s Hale Avenue Resource Recovery Facility (HARRF) station. However, residents cried foul on Wednesday at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. More than 90 percent who spoke at the meeting were against the location, saying it doesn’t fit the surrounding area, as the plant is an industrial facility, which will sit in a residential and commercial neighborhood. None, though, said they didn’t believe the facility

is unwarranted as the city moves forward to diversify its water portfolio. It is the location that drew their ire. In addition, The Springs of Escondido, a senior living facility, will be less than 300 feet away from the plant. Numerous residents and Assistant General Manager Russell Nakaoka spoke against the location. One resident shouted at the council saying, “old lives matter” and “give a damn about us people.” “The Planning Commission had an issue with its visual compatibility,” Nakaoka said. “We have an active place and don’t want a monolithic facility. The city is large enough to find alternative areas.” Residents also suggested the council was approving the plant due to residents’ social-economic status and ethnicity. Many noted how the project was delayed last year when residents from the Chaparral Glen neighborhood objected.

However, the council said it wasn’t due to social status, but because the project would be within 10 feet of homes. As for the implications of social inequalities, Councilman Ed Gallo and Deputy Mayor John Masson defiantly and loudly shot down those claims. “When you bring up ethnicity, that really bugs me. That is B.S.,” Gallo said. “We don’t play that game,” Masson added. “Saying we are doing this because of social injustices … that crap doesn’t belong here.” Masson also asked to see evidence of the plant reducing property values, after residents made such claims. Gallo, meanwhile, said the plant would save the city $400 million, as it won’t have to expand its outfall. The two councilmen, along with Mayor Sam Abed and councilman Mike Morasco, said their decision

was based on the needs of the city. In addition, the majoriTURN TO FACILITY ON 8

SAN MARCOS — An environmental group said it was still considering filing a lawsuit to challenge the San Marcos approval of a residential development in the foothills on the eve of the deadline to do so. Dan Silver, the CEO of the Endangered Habitats League, said that the organization would “likely file,” a lawsuit challenging the 189-home San Marcos Highlands project, but was still weighing its options as of last week. The deadline for groups to challenge the city’s approval is Jan. 13, 30 days after the city approved the second reading and officially approved the project. The City Council originally voted 4-1 on Nov. 15 after a four-hour public hearing in which most of the speakers railed

against the project, citing environmental, traffic, open space preservation, wildlife protection and school overcrowding as flaws of the current project. Councilman Chris Orlando cast the lone dissenting vote. A search of the Superior Court’s register of actions show no cases filed against San Marcos related to the project, but at the Nov. 15 meeting, an attorney from at least one organization appeared and submitted a letter of opposition and a representative from another group attached themselves to their complaint letter. These letters are typically precursors to legal action. The Highlands project has been in the works TURN TO HIGHLANDS ON 15

Look forward to the New Year By Dr. Glenn Mollette

I hope 2017 can be a good year for you. Whatever you can do to assist with the success of your year will be very helpful. A local businessman remarked recently, “The harder I work, the luckier I get.” All of us are recipients of some bad luck throughout life. Often some of our bad luck is because of people we are associated with in our lives. What other people do greatly impacts us. A spouse, a parent, a child or work associate all affect us for good or bad. It’s good for us when people we are close to are successful and not so great when they mess up. However, the bottom line is that we must all individually take ownership of our lives. I used to write weekly for a Kentucky paper called Western Recorder. The editor of that paper Chauncey Daley was so great to me. I once submitted three stories one week and he sent them all back to me covered with red marks pointing out errors and things he didn’t like. It was a little painful but he was willing to invest his time to help me learn and be better.

In three years, GOP may be third choice in California California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


he election results were in more than month ago. Except in California and a couple of other states, Republican Donald Trump drew a robust number of presidential votes, enough to put him in the White House even if it fell well short of a plurality. But there was nothing robust about the performance of his party mates here in America’s largest state. They lost seats in the state Legislature and barely held onto piddline 14 out of 53 seats in California’s congressional delegation. Unless things change soon, they only promise to get worse and worse over the next few years for the state GOP. If past is prologue, the state’s Republican Party will soon become the third choice of Californians registered to vote — and 78 percent of those eligible to register are in fact registered — fully 19.4 million of us, according to the count delivered by Secretary of State Alex Padilla four days before November’s Election Day. That overall number is up about 1.2 million over the last four years, despite forecasts that far fewer people would sign up to vote this time because outgoing President Obama was not on the fall ballot. And yet the Republican number is way down. Over those same four years, the state’s GOP lost 312,000 voters even as population climbed and Trump spent much of May campaigning here, at many stops encouraging his supporters to register Republican. This was obviously not enough. For as Republican registration nosedived to just 26 percent of registered voters, Democratic registration was up about 775,000,

for a net gain of more than 1.1 million voters over their Republican rivals in just four years. How did this happen in a time when there was no dramatic demographic change and no one group had reason to be more motivated to register as voters than any other? One factor is the Republican brand. Starting in 1994, when the GOP and then-Gov. Pete Wilson got staunchly behind the anti-illegal immigrant Proposition 187, the party label has been anathema to the vast majority of Latinos and other

But more of them are choosing to switch to the NPP column than into the Democratic fold, which translates as a warning to the Dems: Don’t get smug. For the GOP isn’t losing voters just because of its brand. It’s hurting because it’s out of step with the majority of Californians, whose fall votes favored gun controls, legalized marijuana and higher tobacco taxes, just a few causes Republican Party officials refused to back. If a party gets too out of step with the voters its candidates seek to represent, it

is doomed. But many Republicans, voters and officials alike, prefer to stick to their very conservative guns, refusing to bend even a little on hardline stances they’ve long held. “We wouldn’t be offering a choice if we changed,” said one party official. In effect, they’re borrowing a line from the 19th Century Kentucky Sen. Henry Clay, who said “I’d rather be right than president” — and never became president despite three national runs. Like Clay, the GOP will keep losing elections unless and until it bends at least a little. And if it won’t bend to fit the preferences of the clear majority of California voters, it soon may have runoff spots in even fewer races than it did this fall. That’s the real meaning of all those complicated voter registration numbers. Email Thomas Elias at For more Elias columns, go to

This means fewer and fewer new voters want to call themselves Republicans, even if they share some ideas and preferences with the GOP. In registration numbers, that created a huge shift into the “no party preference” (NPP) category, now the No. 3 choice for registered voters at 24.2 percent of registrants, barely 300,000 voters behind the Republican tally. Over four years, the NPP total is now about 25 percent above its level of four years ago, gaining more than 900,000 voters, the largest increase of any political group, or in this case, a non-group. There’s some comfort here for Democrats, who have seen many thousands of Republican voters convert to their column or drift into NPP-land. California voters, said party spokesman Michael Soller just before Election Day, “reject Republicans’ election lies and suppression tactics…”

Having anybody in our lives who cares enough about us to help us with anything is a real plus. We are better benefited from good advice when we seriously listen and make application. All advice is not necessarily helpful. We all get bad advice throughout life so it’s important to be discerning about what we are told and who is doing the teaching. Some of what we hear in life is repeated with almost inerrant credibility. For example eating badly will have eventual negative results on our health. We are told to watch our intake of sugar, fried food, and red meat and to simply use common sense on our daily portions. It’s good advice and it’s up to us to take it or leave it. We are told to exercise routinely because it’s good for our health. Nobody can make us exercise. We have to take responsibility for our physical fitness.

ViaSat’s newest satellite to increase internet speeds County coming to family’s aid after mobile home fire

By Steve Puterski

EL SEGUNDO — At a low-key press event, ViaSat revealed its latest and most advanced satellite, which will put the company on a path to be more competitive in the internet market. At Boeing’s satellite facility on Tuesday, ViaSat and Boeing executives engaged in an hour-long presentation about ViaSat-2’s capabilities, their business partnership, plus a tour of the facility highlighted by revealing the $350 million state-of-the-art satellite. The total project cost, meanwhile, is about $600 million and took three years to construct. However, no photos were allowed to preserve company and technological strategies. Nevertheless, ViaSat’s crown jewel stands 25-feet high, about 10 feet wide and, once its solar panels deploy in space, it will have a wingspan of 150 feet. Arianespace, a French company, will deliver the satellite on its Ariane 5 rocket. “We’re really evolving toward, what we believe, is the first global internet service provider,” said Dave Abrahamian, ViaSat’s director of space systems. “Our whole mantra for the past 10 years … is to reduce the cost per bit, increase capacity substantially so that satellite-base broadband is no longer the choice of last resort. We’ll move that ball significantly forward when we launch ViaSat-2.” ViaSat-2, meanwhile, will have two times more the capacity than ViaSat-1, which was the highest capacity ever launched in 2011, and increase speeds up to 300 gigabits per second (Gbps), seven times more coverage and customer download speeds up to 25 to 50Mbps. More capacity in the satellite increases the bandwidth, which enables faster internets speeds to consumers. With a successful launch, which is scheduled for March or April in French Guiana in South America, ViaSat-2 will expand the Carlsbad-based company’s reach across the Atlantic Ocean to the Middle East and the northern tip of South America. Alaska will be the only state not to receive coverage from ViaSat-2 due to the angle of Earth. “We don’t have to sacrifice capacity for coverage area,” Abrahamian explained. “We can also move capacity around. ViaSat-2 solves that problem.” In addition, the increase in ViaSat’s customer base is estimated to increase about two to threefold, said Keven Lippert, executive vice president of Satellite Systems and Corporate Development at ViaSat. Currently, the company has about 700,000 residential and commercial users on its ViaSat-1 satellite including more

than 550 aircraft along with maritime vessels and the U.S. government. Its domestic airline portfolio includes United, JetBlue, Virgin America and most recently, American Airlines. “We won the American Airlines contract first for their 737… and then their entire mainline North American fleet,” Abrahamian added. “We think we can compete favorably with cable providers. The cost per user…, which is there metric, is greatly, greatly in our favor. There is no great efficient means of providing broadband in a large area than satellite.” Abrahamian said another advantage for the company comes from aircraft service. With the launch, and ViaSat’s European partner Eutelsat, 85 to 90 percent of all flight routes will be covered. Lippert, though, said the ultimate advantages of the new satellite will allow

the company to become more competitive in the internet market. Notably, ViaSat can challenge low- to mid-tier cable and DSL internet service providers. In addition, ViaSat-2 will begin to ease data caps currently in place. In other words, ViaSat-1’s capacity allows for up to 150 gigabytes of data per month, similar to cellphone data plans. Abrahamian, though, said ViaSat-2 will dovetail into ViaSat-3, the company’s most aggressive plan to date. The project will launch a trio of satellites for global coverage and could eliminate the data caps plaguing internet satellite companies. It will be the first satellite with one terabyte of capacity, which is larger than the more than 400 combined communicaTURN TO SATELLITE ON A13

Ride-share driver sentenced to jail, must register as sex offender By Steve Puterski

VISTA — A 37-year-old San Marcos man and former ride-sharing driver was sentenced up to one year in jail this month after he was arrested for groping and exposing himself to women. In addition to one year in jail, Jeremy Vague, 37, was sentenced to three years probation and must register as a sex offender. He pleaded guilty Dec. 1 to one felony count of false imprisonment and misdemeanor charges of sexual battery and indecent exposure. Both ride-sharing companies, Uber and Lyft, fired Vague after his arrest. According to Escondido Police Lt. Justin Murphy in an interview in September, he said an 18-year-old Palomar College student in San Marcos hailed Vague in his blue 2014 Town & Country minivan through Uber to take her home. Instead, authorities allege Vague turned off the application and took the woman to an

alternate destination where he sexual penetrated her with his hand. “Jeremy Vague was subsequently arrested at his home later the same evening,” Murphy said. On Sept. 7, Vague was working for Lyft and is alleged to have assaulted two women after taking pictures with them. He was accused of groping the women, which were college-aged, Murphy said. “Uber and Lyft have been cooperating with investigators throughout the process and are providing information requested through the legal process,” Murphy explained. Another female Palomar College student, meanwhile, avoided Vague’s attempt to lure her into his vehicle on Sept. 6, 2016 when she refused to accept a ride, Murphy said. He explained the woman had not used either Uber or Lyft to hail a ride. “This female refused

to get into the van and reported the incident to the Palomar College police department,” Murphy said. “Since there was no specific criminal violation during this incident, Vague was contacted and advised by police not to return to the campus.”

Vague played two seasons of college basketball at Utah State, according the team’s website, and coached girls basketball at Calvin Christian High School in Escondido for several years, according to reports. He no longer coaches the basketball team.

ESCONDIDO — Residents from all over Escondido, San Diego County and, perhaps, the country, have stepped up to help a family who lost their 5-year-old daughter, Elizette Orozco, in a fire in December. A day after the blaze, 11-year-old Diego Floresvidal, the girl’s uncle, died at a local hospital, according to media reports. With the tragic loss of two children, a family friend started a GoFundMe page for the Flores family, which has raised more than $57,000 as of Tuesday. Donations ranged from $5 to $5,000 to help the family cover funeral expenses and personal items lost in the fire. The GoFundMe drive started with a goal of $10,000 about six hours after the fire. Just over eight hours later, the goal was increased to $15,000 due to the outpouring of support from those all over San Diego. More than $9,800 was raised in the first eight hours. The page’s creator, family friend Miles Firme, kept increasing the goal as people continued to support the families. On Dec. 29 at 12:36 a.m., the Escondido Fire and Police Departments responded to a structure fire with reports of victims trapped inside at the Green Crest Mobile Home Park, 541 W. 15th Ave., in Escondido. Upon arrival, firefighters and police officers found heavy fire and black smoke coming from the front doors and windows. Family members on scene confirmed two children were trapped inside

the home. Firefighters took action and requested second alarm, an air ambulance, and additional ground ambulances, according to the EFD. Two firefighters made entry to the rear of the structure where they quickly located Floresvidal. He was removed from the structure and firefighter paramedics and police officers waiting outside provided CPR, according to EFD Fire Chief Russ Knowles. Paramedics were able to restore a pulse, but the boy was declared brain dead one day later. Floresvidal was transported to Palomar Hospital and was later transferred to UCSD Medical Center by air ambulance. A total of eight residents were transported to local hospitals with injuries ranging from mild smoke inhalation to acute status CPR. After the fire was controlled, firefighters found the girl inside the mobile home. The fire was contained to the mobile home by a total of 42 firefighters including seven fire engines, three truck companies, six ambulances and four chief officers. The EFD was assisted by San Marcos Fire, Vista Fire and Mercy Air. The Red Cross was requested to provide assistance to the residents. The cause of the fire is undetermined, however it is possible the fire was caused by an electrical failure or a candle. No smoke detectors were found in the mobile home and there were no reports of a smoke alarm sounding.

Palomar College’s flora, trees and plants have brought the campus into the green thumb spotlight By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — The transformation of Palomar College over the decades has not just been reserved to brick-and-mortar construction. Over the years, the campus has become home to one of the most unique collections of trees, plants and other flora — a fact that often goes unnoticed by students and faculty alike as they hustle to and from the newly fabricated buildings. Recently, however, the campus’ greenery received a prestigious certification, as Palomar College was recently certified as a Level II Arboretum by the ArbNet Arboretum Accreditation Program. Palomar College is the only community college to achieve the recognition, and one of only two college campuses statewide to achieve the designation, with UC Davis being the other. What makes the designation significant is that

while the college does have an arboretum — the Edwin and Francis Hunter Arboretum flanks the campus’ northeast side — this designation encompasses the 200-acre San Marcos campus in its entirety. “The fact that the entire campus is recognized as an arboretum... is very exciting,” said Joi Lin Blake, Palomar College superintendent/president. “This is a notable distinction that places Palomar as a leader in the county.” Below the freshly minted two-story and three-story buildings that have dotted the campus as part of the decade long building campaign, grounds services crews have created a lush landscape of plants from all across the world. A recently completed Polynesian garden Teaching and Learning Center contains exotic palms, screw pines, sweet potatoes, and “Arguably Palomar College has one of the greatest concentrations of plant diversity on public display within banana trees set against the a relatively small area in San Diego County, rivaled only by Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park backdrop of a faux-lava rain and San Diego Botanical Garden,” says Tony Rangel, the college’s current grounds services supervisor. water feature. Nearby, a garden of plants from Madagascar adorns the side of another building, with native, drought tolerant California landscape woven throughout. Towering bamboo and palms adorn the official arboretum and its stone pathways. And acres of coastal sage scrub set the backdrop for the college’s new baseball stadium. The collections and gardens — there are 31 different themed gardens throughout the campus — have been cultivated and cared for over the decades

by previous landscapers, arborists and grounds crews. Tony Rangel, the college’s current grounds services supervisor, said the certification is the culmination and recognition of that work, and speaks to the educational value of the collection, which he said teaches valuable lessons about conservation, proper landscaping techniques and appreciation of and awareness of endangered species. “We had an opportunity to basically make it a more formal effort, and solidifying the value of the collection to the community, and to show the com-

munity that we are not just growing a bunch of cool and interesting plants because we can,” Rangel said. “We are doing it as an educational opportunity. “An arboretum is a living museum, and you go to a museum to learn, so that’s pretty much tied into the fact that this is an institution of learning, and since we have to beautify the campus anyway, let’s do it in a way that offers the community, staff and faculty an opportunity to teach and a way to learn,” Rangel said. Rangel further stated, “The arboretum certification allows the college

to work more closely and efficiently on plant-based conservation and education projects with other like-minded institutions from across the country and the globe. The certification demonstrates that the plants on campus are more than landscaping — they are part of a classroom, teaching visitors about the importance of landscaping responsibly with non-invasive plants, native plants and plants adapted to our climate. As the campus grows and diversifies over the coming years, Palomar will continue to show that we recognize and are committed to treating our botanical gems as ambassadors for conservation.” Rangel said that the college understood the value of adding to its diverse cast of plants and landscaping over the years to complement the heavy construction brought along by Proposition M, the near$700 million bond measure approved in 2006 that has transformed the campus. “Arguably Palomar College has one of the greatest concentrations of plant diversity on public display within a relatively small area in San Diego County, rivaled only by Balboa Park, the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park and San Diego Botanical Garden,” Rangel said. “It really speaks to the commitment of the college to striking the balance of bringing in plants that not only complement the building, but also benefit us in the areas of conservation, education and environmental stewardship.” For Level II accreditation, ArbNet requires that institutions have, among other things, an up-to-date database with a minimum of 100 woody plants and TURN TO ARBORETUM ON 8

Marcella, the city’s economic development manager, said the uptick in commercial buildings is a sign the market has recognized growth opportunities in Carlsbad and North County. Although Carlsbad has the highest vacancy rate among the five cities — Escondido, Oceanside, Vista and San Marcos — in North County, the number has dropped steadily over the past five years. In fact, Carlsbad ended the third quarter of 2016 with a 6.9 percent vacancy rate, according to Chris Reutz, a research director for Colliers International. Marcella, though, reported the city’s vacancy rates are 2.5 percent in retail, 8.3 percent in industrial and 18.2 percent for office. “The vacancy rates have steadily been declining over the past five years,” she said “This shows confidence in our commercial real estate market and provides opportunities for growth of existing businesses and the establishment of new businesses here in Carlsbad. While we won’t have concrete numbers on the impact of this development activity until tenants are in place, we do expect to see dollars come from business licenses, TOT (Transient Occupancy Tax) revenue and property tax.” Although Carlsbad sits No. 1 in vacancy rates, the city is undergoing numerous new projects to increase its high-end manufacturing, research and development and warehousing sectors. Reutz’s report said Carlsbad is the fastest growing submarket in San Diego County since the end of the recession. Also, Carlsbad average rent for industrial space is $1.08 per square foot, which is 1.9 percent higher than the third quarter of 2015. Reutz also noted the 390,204-square feet of space under construction is 22 percent of the total space being built in the county, and among submarkets not counting research and development Carlsbad is No. 1. “Many of these developments also include infrastructure improvements to the city’s streets and sidewalks, maintaining the city’s standards when new development is in place,” Marcella said. “The new buildings provide flexibility to businesses, offering more opportunities to find the space that best suits their company’s needs. As the portfolio of North County expands, a city is better able to help a broader population of businesses, from those starting out and needing a small space, to larger corporations looking to grow or move here for our quality of life and highly educated talent pool. Escondido In North County’s largest city, meanwhile, space is limited and difficult to rent, according to Management Analyst Michelle Gellar. Like Marcella and Hohenstein, Gellar said there


T he C oast News - I nland E dition is no way to determine the actual financial impacts of current projects until tenants move in. Still, the city landed its two largest projects in 10 years when La Jolla-based Badiee Development was approved for two large projects. “Obviously, jobs will be created and that will be the biggest impact to us,” Gellar said. “We are pretty heavy in retail. So when new developments that are geared more toward highend manufacturing, it diversifies our job base.” Although the city will miss out on sales tax from those industries, the trickle down effects are positive. Companies still must pay property taxes, water, but is a smaller slice. More jobs, higher paying employment increases spending and thus adds to sales tax revenues. “Sales tax will be generated in the supply chain,” Gellar added. “These employees are obviously getting gas, going out to lunch and getting these sorts of things. So that helps too.” Still, Escondido has the third-lowest vacancy rate for industrial at 2.8 percent, although it did increase by 0.4 percent over the second quarter of 2016. Rents, meanwhile, average $0.02 per square foot, which is second highest in North County behind Carlsbad, according to Reutz’s report, although rates did increase 12.2 percent from third quarter 2015. As for the new developments, Gellar stressed the importance of those additions to the city. “It is very needed,” she added. “We have companies … that unfortunately that had to leave Escondido because we didn’t have space for them to grow in to. Having nice, big industrial spaces will help us retain these businesses as they grow. The rest of North County As a whole, North County offers 52.7 million-square feet of industrial space with a 3.75 vacancy rate, which includes research and development facilities. Rental rates are going up faster in North County than anywhere else in San Diego County, according to Reutz. The average rate is $0.89, which is 3.5 percent higher than last year, while the county average increased by just one percent. Construction is “robust” as 415,970-square feet of space were completed in the first nine months of 2016. Another 605,363-square feet is currently under construction. Expansion is underway with Coca-Cola adding 193,800-square feet in Oceanside, a 21,359-square foot addition in Vista and three projects in Carlsbad. San Marcos, meanwhile, has the second highest vacancy rate at 4.55 percent, while Vista is the lowest at 1.7 percent followed by Oceanside at 1.96 percent. More than $100 million in sales of current buildings transpired in the first three quarters of 2106, Reutz reported.

Some favorite reads to start the New Year small talk jean gillette


here is, of course, never a bad time to read, but the holidays usually offers particularly splendid opportunities. I made the most of it, once I got the tree down and decorations stored, shamelessly devouring several books. If you are very lucky, you get books as a gift, which you are then clearly obliged to drop everything and read, right? The next best thing is a bookstore gift card, which I wasted no time cashing in.

ho will North County Chargers fans support now on game day? After 15 years of evaluating sites in San Diego County for a new football stadium (including Oceanside), it seems the team has finally decided whether there’s a local solution to replacing the aging Qualcomm Stadium. As of the publishing of this column, it’s been reported that Chargers owner Dean Spanos has decided he’ll be filing for a team move to Los Angeles. This new development comes off the heels of a failed effort to move the Chargers to Carson in 2015, and a failed ballot measure to build a stadium in downtown San Diego last fall. Measure C, the NFL stadium measure on the November 2016 ballot, was crushed on Election Day — only 43 percent of voters cast ballots in support. Shortly thereafter, intense negotiations were held between the Chargers, the City of San Diego, San Diego County, and San Diego State University, which reportedly resulted in $375 million in financial support for a new football stadium, requiring a countywide public vote. I know a lot of Chargers are out there mourning over the team’s announcement. However, it’s important to remember that it’s ultimately not up to Dean Spanos — the final decision-maker is the collective will of the NFL ownership, which previously rejected Dean’s loud and splashy co-venture with the Oakland Raiders to move to Carson. It’s entirely possible that, given the fickle L.A. fan base and fragile efforts to expand the Rams brand last season, he may be given extra cash to try another stadium vote in San Diego, giving the Rams extra time to prove the viability of an NFL team in L.A.

Once read, my very favorite thing to do is pass the book along to a friend or at least tell them about the best ones. Hence, I am listing of some of my favorites from the last few months. I stumbled onto a delightful science fiction book called “A Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet” by Becky Chambers. It had a fascinating take on the future and the job of coexistence amon extremely different life forms. The story is set on a ship that bores tunnels creating wormholes for interstellar travel, and the crew is a glorious mix of fascinating alien species. It’s great fun. I indulged my newfound taste for mysteries with the first in the “Lady Hardcastle” mysteries by T.E. Kinsley. “A Quiet Life in the Country”

is just clever in both plot and character dialogue. Set in the 1930s, the marvelous pairing of a rich, middle-aged British widow and her best friend/lady’s maid who solve mysteries, kept me laughing throughout. Another mystery I recommend is “Broken Grace,” by E.C. Diskin. A woman loses her memory in a car crash leaving her boyfriend’s house and then discovers her boyfriend has been murdered. Her sister takes her in and a twisting, turning plot ensues. “The Sisterhood” by Helen Bryan is a great combination of historical fiction, mystery and art. Using a dual timeline, it tells of female oppression in the 16th century and the story of Menina, adopted by American parents, who ends up in Spain to finish her thesis on a little-known

artist who signs his work with the same image as a medallion Menina has had since birth. “The Things We Wish Were True,” by Marybeth Mayhew Whalen introduces some wonderful, very human characters, which grab your heart. During the summer at a North Carolina community pool, a near drowning brings the community together and the story is filled with unexpected twists and turns. Here’s hoping you can curl up with any of these, on paper or electronic device. As one cartoon puts it, “It’s like TV in your head!” Jean Gillette is a freelance writer whose books may have a couple of sticky fingerprints from Christmas cookie icing and fudge.

San Diego: Post-Chargers edition No one really knows, but yes, this is probably goodbye.

I have mixed emotions about the move to L.A. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but the 49ers and Raiders never earned my fan support — my dad was a loyal Dallas Cowboys fan, and we used to get flack for that at family gatherings with my extended family members. When I moved to San Diego in 2007, I eagerly adopted the Chargers as my team — I wanted to support local in all aspects of my life, and

build roots here. The Rivers-LT-Gates era probably made that transition fairly easy. I couldn’t imagine making that transition now, as the team comes of a lackluster 5-11 season with uninspired play, coaching, and ugly injuries. Still, it was fun representing our home team on NFL Sunday, taking the Coaster from North County to downtown San Diego to watch all the games with friends. I still plan on doing that next season, but now as

a Las Vegas Raiders fan. I would never support a Los Angeles team, and I don’t think the Chargers ever did enough to support fans, our community, or work with our elected officials on building a new stadium. They’re no longer worthy of my support. Every Chargers fan in North County has a decision to make. What will yours be? Vince Vasquez is a newly-minted Las Vegas Raiders fan, and a Carlsbad resident.

Robotics in hair restoration? It’s a buyer beware scenario OCEANSIDE — Robotics are becoming increasingly common in surgical procedures, and for good reason. However, no matter how efficient and precise a machine can be, when it comes to aesthetics there is no replacement for a highly skilled surgeon. Hair restoration is one such industry that is being flooded with robotic surgery, but its popularity doesn’t necessarily mean it’s your best choice. “Essentially what is happening is that robotic surgery is enabling less skilled surgeons to perform delicate procedures such as hair transplants,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD said. “And when you are trying to visually recreate what God gave you, it’s just not going to happen with a robot. There are problems with it.” Currently there are two main methods for hair

transplant. Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG) and the more recent Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). FUG procedures, also known as the strip method, are done by taking a strip of a patient’s scalp and extracting donor harvesting from that strip. A robot cannot perform FUG procedures. FUE procedures, by contrast, involve extracting follicular units one hair at a time from the donor area. When it comes to FUE, Wagner advises patients to opt for the skill of a surgeon versus a robot. “The human eye can see things that a computer or robot can’t,” Wagner said. “At MyHairTransplantMD we pay the utmost attention to the artistic side of the procedure. We found that advanced technology is amazing, but in the wrong “Essentially what is happening is that robotic surgery is enabling less hands it yields bad results. skilled surgeons to perform delicate procedures such as hair transIf you’re looking for the plants,” says Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD in Oceanside. highest aesthetics, the best Courtesy photo


That’s really our goal … and we’re headed.” As for Boeing’s role, the two companies partnered to build the satellite. ViaSat constructed the technology for its systems and the design, while Boeing built the satellite (a 702 high-power series) and performed the mandatory testing require-

COMMUNITY MEMBER OPENING ON TRI-CITY HEALTHCARE DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS COMMITTEE The Tri-City Healthcare District Board of Directors currently has a community membership opening on the following working Committee: 1. Audit/Compliance/Ethics Committee – one opening. This Committee meets monthly. Applicants shall have a basic understanding of finance and accounting and be able to read and understand financial statements, and shall have experience and familiarity with the specialized issues relating to health care financial issues. Applicants will be expected to attain a basic understanding of the design and operation of an Internal Audit Program and Ethics & Compliance Program, including: (1) review of Office of Inspector General/AHLA materials for Boards; (2) review of OIG compliance program guidance; and (3) attendance at relevant educational sessions presented by the Chief Compliance Officer, Internal Auditor, and/or the Health Care Compliance Association or similar organizations. If members of the public have an interest in serving as a community member on the above listed Committee, please send a resume or biography delineating your experience relevant to this Committee to: Teri Donnellan, Executive Assistant Tri-City Medical Center 4002 Vista Way, Oceanside, CA 92056 Your information will be forwarded to the Chairperson of the Committee and Board Chairperson for review and consideration. After consideration by the full Committee, a recommendation will be forwarded to the full Board of Directors for final approval/ appointment. All appointments are voluntary and do not include compensation. Community members shall serve a term of two years, with an option to renew the appointment for one additional two year term. At the conclusion of the second term, the community member shall not be eligible to serve on the same Board Committee for at least two years. It is preferable that a community member shall be a member of no more than one Board Committee at a time. The Board of Directors of Tri-City Healthcare District desires to ensure that its Committee community members are knowledgeable as to the issues that face the District. Therefore, only applications submitted by persons residing within the boundaries of the Tri-City Healthcare District will be considered.

“Certain customers, like ViaSat, does certain proprietary information that they may not want to share that and we respect that.” As for the launch schedule, Abrahamian said ViaSat-2 had undergone and passed all testing performed by Boeing and is now waiting to be shipped to South America. Testing included temperature performances, where in space there is a 600-degree difference between light (300 degrees Fahrenheit) and shade (-300), noise exams up to 10,000 hertz and simulated space tests in Boeing’s thermal vacuum. “You get one shot at this,” Spiwak added. “These are 22,000 miles away so it’s a pretty rigorous test program so it makes sure it works for 15 years or whatever the design life is on orbit. You can’t go up there and fix it.” Once there, it will be fueled and launched into its orbital slot above the East Coast. However, ViaSat will conduct numerous systems tests once the satellite is in space and will not be operational for consumer use until fourth quarter 2017, Lippert added. “There will be improvements to the ViaSat-3 satellite class,” he said.

results, only a skilled surgeon can deliver that.” Hair restoration by robot is being offered more and more frequently at offices where FUE is just one of a menu of cosmetic procedures. “At MyHairTransplantMD, we do one thing and we do it extremely well,” Wagner said. “This isn’t something we decided to do on a whim or to keep up with the growing demand. It’s the only thing we do, and we stand by the results our surgeons deliver. Our team in particular has a more artistic approach than some of the other offices that might offer it.” Robotic surgery’s popularity is often attributed to the precision it offers and the elimination of the possibility for human error. However, robotic systems are prone to software and mechanical errors, and when you have less skilled surgeons performing sur-



ty said it doesn’t make sense to spend millions for a new piece of land or put the facility at the Public Works Yard. Several residents put the yard forth as an alternative location, but Abed said the land is too valuable. He noted plans to develop it as a business park. Abed also said the San Diego Economic Development Council reported the development would bring in 1,000 jobs through light industrial and technology. He added its location, near state Route 78, Interstate 15 and a rail line, make it ideal for business development. “It is our obligation to do what is best for the city,” Abed explained. “We totally understand your concerns. That is why staff took their time and due diligence.” Councilwoman Olga Diaz was lone no vote and said the scope of the project caught her off guard as it move forward. She also appealed the Planning Commission’s ruling along with Escondido attorney Everett DeLano, although the two appeals are independent of each other.


that a plant collection policy must be in place and collections defined. Palomar has more than 300 plants labeled and hundreds of species of seeds, including for several endangered plant varieties.

We feel strongly that what we do here is best done by hand, and done best by highly skilled, trained and experienced surgeons.” M y H a i rTr a n s p l a n tMD is located at 2103 S.

Diaz, though, agreed the city must expand its recycled water capabilities, especially since the water from this plant will be delivered for agricultural uses. However, she said the vision doesn’t fit with the area and will be delayed by a lawsuit. Resident Alfred Roebuck, who lives two blocks from the site, said an industrial facility near his home wasn’t what he “signed up for.” He explained of a chemical spill at another facility in 2012 and said even with safeguards, another accident could still occur. “You wouldn’t want it next to your home, so ask to build next to mine or theirs,” he said of his neighbors. The facility could also be expanded to three million gallons per day, should it be determined the city needs to increase its capacity. Two buildings would comprise the new plant, one consisting of 21,660-square feet and the other at 14,400 and housing the chemicals needed. In addition, above-ground storage tanks totaling 1.26 million gallons would be on site and range between 27 and 31 feet high.

We are always learning.”

My travel wish list for 2017 hit the road e’louise ondash


lthough I have friends who have completely discarded the exercise of making resolutions at this time of year, I still find that hanging a new calendar on the wall (sometimes you just gotta see that whole month on paper) is a practice that begs introspec-

tion. I like to think about where I’ve been and where I might be going. I do know where I’ve been; I’m not sure about where the coming year may take me. And while some find this cause for anxiety, I find it a bit exciting. I like to think of the possibilities. For many years, my family has had to plan ahead and navigate around school and employment schedules. Now we have arrived at a time when these factors are less important and it feels good. But it’s still fun to plan a bit and at least make a wish list of destinations and some

goals about how to get there. At the top of my list is Botswana. I’ve researched Africa and found that Botswana is noted for its lack of conflict, commitment to the environment (38 percent of its lands are protected), excellent game-viewing and welcoming people (no visas required for U.S. residents). Botswana also is the setting for Alexander McCall Smith’s “No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,” a book series that I love. The author did a lot for

atirist Tom Lehrer once said, “Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it.” For George Winston, his approach has been one of total immersion and a laser-focus on his chosen instrument dating back to 1972, when he forsake playing the organ after getting turned on to the stride piano stylings of Fats Waller and Teddy Wilson. Winston never looked back and went on to become a self-described

“rural folk pianist,” more than happy to play live, periodically record and raise money for charities at seemingly every turn. Having made his recording debut with “Ballads and Blues 1972” on the Takoma Records imprint of fellow musical iconoclast John Fahey, it would be another eight years before he entered the studio to make “Autumn,” his Windham Hill Records debut for label owner Will Ackerman.

Runners to fill streets again during annual marathon By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — About 8,000 runners and walkers will once again take to the streets as part of the 26th

annual Tri City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon. The race features full and half marathons and

draws thousands of runners from across the country. There will be a Kids Marathon (one mile) at Legoland on Saturday. Sunday’s race begins at 6:15 a.m. with the full marathon (26.2 miles) followed by a 7:45 a.m. start for the half marathon (13.1). This year, though, will

see several additions to Sunday’s race including a beer garden for participants 21 and older. The garden is hosted by Ballast Point and was created after gather feedback, according to Nicole Mowat of In Motion Event Marketing and Management, the TURN TO MARATHON ON 15

ven old coaches can learn new tricks. R a y Johnson was proud of his healthy ways. His mornings arrived with a glass of orange juice and a big ol’ bagel. It was as normal to the winningest prep coach in San Diego County history as toasting another victory. Then Johnson felt the tug from his daughter. “Dad, that seems great but that’s a big shot of sugar with a ton of carbs,’’ Megan Johnson McCullough told him. So the kid took pops under her wing and all was not lost. Just his belly. “She questioned a lot of things I was eating,’’ Johnson said. There’s no question it was for the better. “He got rid of his beer gut,’’ she laughed. Smiles and shedding pounds is the norm at Johnson McCullough’s Every Body’s Fit in Oceanside. A former El Camino hoops star, she is coaching in another way. Instead of dishing advice to players, as she did as a girls basketball coach at Oceanside and Carlsbad highs, Johnson McCullough is working with all ages of both genders. “It’s kind of cool,’’ she said. “I’m still coaching but it’s just a different avenue.’’ Johnson McCullough is 30 going on 20. Her fitness level is off-the-charts and she has the body building trophies to prove it. But it wasn’t always

smooth sailing. After dipping her toe into the coaching world, she thought about a legal career. A stint as a paralegal proved otherwise. “I hated it,’’ she said. “It was awful.’’ She looked into the fitness world and something clicked. She met another woman who owned a workout studio and Johnson McCullough said, “why not me?” Five years ago Johnson McCullough found a spot and, of course, called her father with her idea. “I showed up with my Dad, ‘Will you co-sign for me?’’’ she said. “I was 25 and had no credit to my name. But the owner said, ‘You really look like a girl with a dream and I’ll give you a shot.’ Five years later it all worked out.’’ Now the gym is buzzing with activity, with everyone from a teenager getting ripped to a 75-year-old getting loose. But it wasn’t always that way. “At first I just waited, hoping for people to walk through the door,’’ she said. “About six months later it started picking up and now we are in a really good place.’’ Johnson McCullough’s approach is well-rounded. She organizes workouts, makes meal plans, gives inspirational chats in person or through social media. Just like preparing a team to be sharp, she wants her clients to be at their best. Or maybe she is just getting revenge. “She beats me up pretty good,” said John Farrell, her El Camino coach and a regular at Every Body’s Fit. “I’m not surprised she’s been so successful at this. She’s always been so driven to be the best in whatevTURN TO PARIS ON 15

friend, Cesar Merline, a chef and Maitre Charcuterie, was his first mentor. Along the way, Pascal held executive chef positions at six different fivestar hotels in France and California. After making his mark in the culinary world as a chef, he founded Angel’s Salumi & Truffles and the rest, as they say, is history. His products can be found in many high-end restaurants, shops and gourmet food distributors around the country. The


Estates Group of San Diego, Mindy Hewitson, event diners have been treated to a four-course custom dinner with accompanying premium wines. “I offer these dinners as a kind of thank you to my customers,” he confided. “I also hope that new diners will see the value and introduce themselves to our restaurant family through our wine dinners.” And a value they are! Most dinners are priced from $49.95 to $55.95 for a fixed custom four-course stylish dinner, with four to five wines generously poured. At times, the winemaker will make an appearance and lead the audience of diners through the vintage and harvest of the wines that are present-

T he C oast News - I nland E dition business continues to grow with the addition of the distribution center, storefront, online shop, and tasting room located in Carlsbad. Pascal’s experience and passion can be tasted in each and every bit of his products. In case you are wondering, the word “Salumi” is simply the plural for Salami. Angel’s Salumi & Truffles was derived from Pascal’s childhood nickname, Angel. Their mission has always been to provide top quality, uniquely handcrafted salami, truffles and other gourmet products. All of their meats are cer-

tified antibiotic and free of steroid and growth hormones. The game meats are free range, cage free or wild. They exclusively use Berkshire pork for all their products. Berkshire pork originated hundreds of years ago in Britain and boasts more marbling, richer color, increased tenderness, moisture and flavor. At the family owned farms in Kansas, the pigs spend most of their time outside roaming free. Their venison hails from New Zealand farms, and is also humanely raised and antibiotic free. The same can be said for their farm raised

ducks and bison. So besides sourcing the best meats possible, Pascal obviously has the pedigree to turn them into amazing salumi. Slice some up with some good cheese and a fresh baguette and it is one of life’s simple, yet delicious pleasures — and with the confidence of knowing it was made by one of the best in the world at it. Their truffle products come from La Maison de la Truffle Crayssac, a French company founded in 1900 in Perigord, a region synonymous to truffles worldwide. Angel’s Salumi acquired Maison Crayssac to

bring this European tradition to the American dinner table. Crayssac manufactures products in France and Italy such as pearl caviar, sea salts, puree, peelings, Carpaccio and juice that are available through Angel’s as well. Their black and white oils, butters and salumi are processed locally here in California and are perfect in pasta, scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes…you get the point. Adding truffles to the menu is a great way to impress guests at your next dinner party and a perfect gift for the foodies in your life. So speaking of perfect

gifts, much of what I spoke of here and more can be purchased online at I would also highly suggest stopping by their showroom location in Carlsbad and meeting them in person at 5621 Palmer Way suite. Call for more details at (760) 931-1324.

Hewitson herself knows about as much as the winery owners and can speak from the experience of walking the walk through the vines. On a recent Miner Family Wines event, Hewitson spoke about the owner, Dave Miner and his beginnings in Napa Valley in 1993. A former Oracle tech exec, he quit to manage a winery, then started up Miner in 1996. In 2007, his wines were served in a White House Presidential dinner. She then walked us through Viognier, Chardonnay, Sangiovese and a beautiful red blend, Emily’s Cuvee ($38).

U.S. Senators receive almost 400 tickets to offer to constituents, according to a source familiar with the ticketing process. Ticket requests made to California’s house and senate members came in at a high volume, with a large amount of requests coming in well before Election Day. Though the source couldn’t say whether it was an anomaly compared to years past. “I don’t know if people were expecting the election to go one way,” the source said, adding that offices don’t ask constituents for their party affiliation when ticket requests are made. Each person, including children, attending the ceremonies taking place on the Capitol grounds, are required to have a ticket.



er she’s doing. “She always guarded the best player on the other team, she was our top scorer and she was always up at 5 a.m. for shooting practice.” Now she aims for physical fitness reaching everyone in her longtime community. “I have former teachers, coaches, players coming in so it has a very lo-


firm who operates the marathon. “It will be in the finish festival,” she said. “We do that with other events and it was something that was requested by our runners. It was a last-minute thing, so it was a surprise.” The full marathon will run from The Shoppes at Carlsbad, through Carlsbad Village then down Coast Highway to La Costa Avenue and also along Palomar Airport Road to El Camino Real. The half marathon has the same starting route, but turns around on Coast Highway just north of Poinsettia Lane. The full marathon is a qualifier for the prestigious Boston Marathon, while the half marathon is part of the triple-crown series in San


putting Botswana on the public’s travel radar, so I’m hoping that, if we go, we won’t see a lot of others like ourselves. Also on the list are Iceland and southern Chile and Argentina. All three countries appear on recent popular mustsee lists, but my incentive has been fired by friends who have been there. It’s mostly the outdoor splendor they describe that has the allure — the mountains, meadows, glaciers, ocean — and the wildlife. Last on my list, for now, is a road trip through North and South Carolina, Georgia, and perhaps Florida — St. Augustine and the


T he C oast News - I nland E dition Tickets, while free and which aren’t meant to be purchased, have begun showing up online. On one website tickets are being sold anywhere from $700 up to $9,000 depending on the viewing sections. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, in fact, while serving as the chairman of the JCCIC, introduced legislation back in 2008 to ban the sales and counterfeiting of inaugural tickets. While the bill didn’t pass, online auction sites as eBay and StubHub announced at the time that sales of the inaugural swearing in tickets wouldn’t be allowed on their sites. However a posting on eBay lists two inauguration tickets for $1,800, or best offer. It is still possible to request tickets by calling the offices Feinstein and new-

ly-elected Sen. Kamala Harris. Some other tickets may become available through the offices of Issa and Rep. Duncan D. Hunter as well. According to several national media reports, a number of protests against the Trump presidency have been planned for Washington, D.C., during the inauguration, and in other cities as Seattle, San Francisco and New York. ANSWER SanDiego, the local chapter of ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition, is planning a Jan. 20 march at noon in downtown from Park Boulevard to the federal building on Front Street. “We want to send a clear message to the Trump administration that we will not allow business as usual,” the group’s Facebook post reads.

cal feel to it,’’ Johnson McCullough said. “It’s fun and I really enjoy it. It’s not like going to work. “I’m a wellness coach. I let people know I will be with them through their fitness journey as they build habits that become established, that will last and lead to lifestyle changes.’’ Johnson can feel it. So can others patting the spot where his belly once resided. “She’s pretty good at

taking you to the limit,” said Johnson, an assistant men’s coach at Cal State San Marcos. “She knows how to get to muscle groups you haven’t used and revitalize some old body parts.’’ That game plan makes sense, from one coach to another.

Diego. The other two are in La Jolla in April and America’s Finest City (San Diego) in August. As for the weather, Mowat said it appears the race will dodge any issues. “It’s been kind of a crummy week,” she added. “It appears it will be clearing up and so far its telling us it will be a nice weekend.” In addition to the beer garden, other new items for participants include a high-quality pullover shirt along with being the winner of the Carlsbad Marathon Golden Ticket, which includes a massage, sandals, apparel, gift cards and more. Road closures in Carlsbad, meanwhile, run Sunday from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. They are as follows: • Marron Road between Monroe Street and Jefferson Street.

• Monroe Street between Marron Road and Carlsbad Village Drive. • Jefferson Street between Marron Road and Laguna Drive. • Laguna Drive between Jefferson Street and State Street. • State Street between Laguna Drive and Carlsbad Boulevard. • Carlsbad Blvd. all lanes between Buena Vista Lagoon and La Costa Avenue. • Avenida Encinas between Cannon Road and Palomar Airport Road. • Poinsettia Lane between Avenida Encinas and Carlsbad Boulevard. • Palomar Airport Road between Carlsbad Boulevard and El Camino Real (both directions from Carlsbad Boulevard to Avenida Encinas then eastbound lanes only from Avenida Encinas to El Camino Real).

Keys. It’s mostly the history that calls us to these places, as well as a kangaroo preserve. (Stay tuned.) Though I’ve visited all these states before, it’s been a while and there is more to see, including friends and family. If time permits, I’ll add Washington, D.C. One goal I’d like to accomplish this year: Learn to pack light. My dream has always been to travel for weeks with only a backpack and perhaps a purse, but those days may be gone. I do think I could probably get by with just a carry-on and a backpack. I’ve been researching this, too, and everyone has their packing tricks. In general, most recommend traveling to some-

place warm (summer clothes don’t take up much room); packing lightweight clothes (wash and dry easily) and those with a limited color palate (everything goes with everything). Take items that serve more than one purpose and wear everything twice anyway. Take no more than two pairs of shoes and wear your hikers on the plane. Leave your jewelry at home, as well as most electronics. The latter can eat up time that you’d otherwise spend exploring, talking to locals or just getting deep into the present — wherever that may be.

for more than 30 years since Farouk Kubba purchased the property in 1981. Kubba originally proposed a 275-home development in 1990, but over time he has reduced the number of homes with each iteration of the proj-



to meet that goal.” Gaspar said that since she was declared the victor in December she had reached out to Faulconer, whose role, she said, is critical in her vision of getting a handle on the county’s homeless issue. “Any plan that has to deal with homelessness has to involve the city of San Diego,” Gaspar said. Faulconer, who called Gaspar’s energy and drive “contagious,” said he shared Gaspar’s passion on the homeless issue, calling it critical to the county’s stability. “For us to succeed the county and the city have to be working close together,” said Faulconer. “The focus is now providing help to the women and men and families who need it.



don’t even know what that even is. I’m sure there’s good stuff everywhere but I have no clue what it even is or where it even came from.” For Winston, simplicity has always been the key to a career in which he’s used his passions and inspirations to forge his creative path, whether it’s the weather patterns of his native Montana, cats, slack-key guitar, Vince Guaraldi, the Doors or the music and culture of New Orleans. Winston is also quick to throw his efforts behind numerous charitable causes. Proceeds for CDs sold at his shows go to local food kitchens and concert attendees are always encouraged to bring canned food to donate to the aforementioned food pantries. There are also a string of benefit albums Winston has recorded that helped out those who lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks (“Remembrance — A Memorial Benefit”), victims of Hurricane Katrina (“Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions: A Hurricane Relief Benefit”) and the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill (“Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions 2: A Louisiana Wetlands Benefit”). And while some may view his unerring willingness to throw his efforts behind various charitable causes as being slightly New Agey, Winston is rather nonchalant about why he chooses to help out in this manner. “My job is to try and clean up a mess after it happens. I’m not really a changer or preventer. Stuff happens and I try to

ect before finally settling on the 189-home version that received the Planning Commission approval in September. It was revived in late 2014 after developers temporarily shelved the plans, and has been very controversial in the communities immediately surrounding the project, which is proposed on 262 acres north-

west of Palomar College. Consultants representing Kubba said that each variation of the project has improved its impact on the surrounding habitat, and that the current project calls to preserve 240 acres of open space. But opponents said the improvements don’t go far enough.

“There are a lot of well meaning, great providers and institutions. How do we weave all that together? How are we making sure that we are providing the

dollars and the wraparound services, mental health in particular and substance

abuse, that really not only gets people off of the street, but in permanent and supportive housing.” Gaspar’s speech capped a ceremony that saw Jacob and Cox sworn into office for the final time in their lengthy careers on the board due to term limits. Cox was sworn in by his wife, former Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox, and Jacob was sworn in by Gore. Jacob, in a nod to Gaspar’s joining the board, which was previously composed of four men and one woman, said she was looking forward to having the junior member aboard. “It’s not just me and the boys anymore,” she said. The ceremonies began with the Gaspar children reciting the pledge of allegiance.

do something like a benefit to help out. That’s my area,” he said. Winston’s latest release is the three-song “Spring Carousel — A Cancer Research Benefit” that was released as an EP earlier this year. Available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play, 100 percent of his artist royalties will go to benefit cancer research. The latest effort strikes close to home because Winston was working on this project after being diagnosed with having a low platelet count. Having already survived thyroid and skin cancer, he flew to California-based City of Hope, a private, not-for-profit clinical research/medical treatment/graduate medical school for a bone marrow transplant. Not only was he successfully treated, Winston got musically inspired. “It was great being there. It was a bone marrow transplant, which is not surgical. I don’t know if it’s harder or easier but it doesn’t involve surgery. I think I had it super-easy compared to a lot of people,” Winston observed. “I’m sure it was harder than I remember. I’ll do whatever it takes to get the music good besides drugs or drinking. I had treatment at City Hope in 2013. I was recovering and staying close by. They have a village, so then you can just walk to your doctor’s appointment. It’s like their hotel, so I was just at the piano every night and these songs just kind of emerged. That whole experience took place on their grounds, in their lecture room on their piano.

It was very serendipitous.” For this current tour, Winston is playing what he calls a “winter show,” which will feature him playing solo on his trademark nine-foot Steinway. From there, Winston will play fall and winter-themed songs mixed with Vince Guaraldi’s “Peanuts” pieces with stride piano, folk piano and New Orleans-influenced music. Or as he puts it, “kind of a mixture of where I’m coming from musically.” Aside from the plan to release a full-length 2-CD version of the “Spring Carousel” EP, Winston has loose plans to eventually do a follow-up to 2002’s “Night Divides the Day — The Music of the Doors” and a long-planned project of songs either written by or inspired by New Orleans piano legend Professor Longhair. But it’s about as close as he’ll get to actually planning anything, as Winston is of the mindset that inspiration comes at its own pace. “If a song happens that’s original or a song of somebody’s to interpret, it’s all something that I notice. That’s serendipity but I’ve got to get the fingers going so that I’m able to play (it),” he said. “Some things take a long time. It’s really just like watching the weather. When it snows, we do certain things and when it rains, we do certain things. It’s kind of like reacting to what the music tells me what to do. It’s not an entity, but it’s like one. It’s of me but not of me. It’s one of those indefinable things. It is what it is or isn’t what it isn’t. It’s neither is nor is what it is or isn’t.”

Any plan that has to deal with homelessness has to involve the city of San Diego.” Kristin Gaspar Dist. 3 Supervisor
