Residents decry housing development approval By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — A group of residents who have expressed frustration with the pace of development in San Marcos said the City Council’s recent approval a 220-home development on Twin Oaks Valley Road is the final straw. The group of residents plans to pursue a referendum to reverse the council’s 4-1 approval of Brookfield Residential Properties’ proposal, which would re-zone about 23 acres near the southwest corner of Twin Oaks Valley Road and Village Drive — just south of Cal State San Marcos — from commercial to residential to pave the way for the new homes. Residents packed council chambers on Jan. 23 to urge the council to vote against the second reading of the ordinance approving the project. The council had voted two weeks earlier to approve the first reading. They said that the city is approving residential development at a much faster pace than the infrastructure needed to support it, pointing to overcrowding at San Marcos’ schools and congestion on key roads and State Highway 78 as evidence. “It’s the next development on the docket and we are fed up,” said Kelly Shipley, one of the chief organizers of the opposition. “What we want to see is development with infrastructure to support it.”

Their message to the council was clear: slow down. “I get that growth is going to happen and that you’re going to experience growing pains,” said Jeffrey Gelt, a longtime city resident, at the Jan. 23 hearing. “You have a responsibility to grow the city slowly and take care of the citizens that are already here. There is a disconnect between the City Council and the citizens of the city. “We have thousands of new permits slated for new construction, but no new schools,” Gelt said. “If the council votes to adopt this resolution, you will receive formal notice that we are moving forward with a referendum.” Several residents did speak in favor of the project, as well as Brookfield Vice President Dave Bartlett, who said that the project had been vetted by staff and the Planning Commission. “Every legitimate development issue raised tonight has been thoroughly vetted by your professional staff,” Bartlett said. “We have worked with the community, including the Friends of Discovery, and we have put a substantial amount of time into this. We believe we got it right.” Mayor Jim Desmond and Councilwomen Rebecca Jones, Kristal Jabara and Sharon Jenkins voted for the project. They said that the TURN TO HOUSING ON 6

ESCONDIDO — The saga between the city and Michael Schlesinger went to a new level this month when the city filed 12 misdemeanor counts against the developer. The charges were filed in Vista Superior Court and Schlesinger, who is the owner of Stuck in the Rough, LLC, must appear March 1 to respond to the municipal code violation allegations. He does not face any jail time, but could face fines. Two of the charges are in relation to a Nov. 22, 2017, fire that destroyed the country club. The Escondido Fire Department also responded to calls of a fire at the club on Oct. 8 and 25, 2017, according to City Attorney Michael McGuinness. The city alleges on Dec. 7, 2017, and again on Jan. 10, about two weeks later, debris and rubbish still lay on the property along with a fire-damaged and collapsed building. The other charges accuse Schlesinger of not maintaining the property as he allegedly allowed broken windows and doors; broken, cracked or defective walls, fences, patios and driveways; graffiti and an unsecure gate on a property with a pool. “The City has repeatedly received complaints regarding the dilapidated, unsecured and vandalized buildings, trespassers, overgrown weeds, dead trees, graffiti, broken fences, broken windows, polluted ponds and similar property maintenance issues associated with the abandoned golf course,” McGuinness said. “Since April 2013, the city’s Fire and Police departments have responded to calls for service to the property at least 78 times.

City Council votes to uphold massage parlor license revocation By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — In racy ads featuring scantily clad models, San Marcos’ King Massage Parlor promised “most sweet and wonderful Asian girls will treat you like king.” The ads, among other things, were the reason the City Council this week took the rare step of upholding the revocation of the massage parlor’s license. The council voted 4-1 at a special meeting on Jan. 23 to deny King Massage’s

appeal of an administrative hearing officer’s decision to revoke the business’ license. The hearing spanned five hours over two special sessions on Jan. 9 and Jan. 23. “I thought that staff had made the case that the violations were valid and proven,” Councilman Chris Orlando said. “I think the totality of them really concerned me, and they showed a pattern of not abiding by the city’s rules, both the ones established

in 2017 and the rules established prior to that, and many state laws as well.” To Orlando’s knowledge, this was the first massage parlor license revocation that had reached the council. Mayor Jim Desmond voted against the revocation solely because of the finding dealing with the sexually explicit advertising, which he said is not clearly defined in the local ordinance or the state. “We were not given any

guidelines for sexually explicit advertising and it is usually left to the State to determine,” Desmond said in an email Thursday. “The State has it under investigation but has not yet ruled. I was in favor denying the appeal on the basis of all the other findings, but could not vote for it with the one yet to be determined finding by the State. If that finding has been removed I would have voted in favor of denying the appeal.” City staff listed eight

Taking it to the streets SAN MARCOS — In what began last year as a sort of roar for social change, protesters and activists again took to streets on Saturday for the annual Women’s March, carrying similar messages for change in cities around the country — including in San Marcos. Women’s rights were at the forefront again during the Women’s March North County San Diego, which this year began and ended on the campus of Palomar College. “We need a leader, not a Tweeter,” and “Love, not hate, that’s what makes America great,” were some of the marchers’ chants. The rally began at the campus with marchers heading down Mission Avenue and back to the college.

Community health centers brace for deep funding cuts By Allison Madsen

It has been 46 years since Vista Community Clinic opened its doors and gave health access to the area’s poor and uninsured. Since then, the clinic has served the health needs of countless community members in North County. In fact, in that time it has become a landmark of sorts, making itself known as a

the state alone, and 10,000 in the country, this halt can have devastating effects on not only the clinics themselves but the nearly 6.5 million people who rely on these centers to remain healthy. We have already begun to see these effects take hold as that funding has been in limbo since September when the federal appro-

The health center program is nothing less than vital to California’s health care system. One in six Californians calls a community health center their medical home.” safe place anyone can go to for high quality care and service, even when financial resources are scarce. Vista Community Clinic, and other health centers alike, have become the backbone of the health safety net, and many times the only place one can turn to for wellness. Over the years, the clinic has evolved to include health services in a wide range of areas, including chiropractic, optometry, behavioral health, podiatry, and medication assisted treatment to battle the opioid crisis, to name a few. The list of services goes on, and continues to expand with each passing year, along with the reach and support of the clinic. The caveat to all of this is that Vista Community Clinic, like any other clinic, is funded primarily with federal support, and the current paralysis within Congress has put a stop to that support. With over 1,300 community health centers in

priation expired. Congress assured health centers and advocates that they would fund health centers before the end of the year, as they have every year since the program’s inception. Yet it is now 2018 and all that Congress was able to do was to provide a temporary patch of funding through March of this year. Without the full authorization, health centers will lose 70 percent of their federal funding, which in California translates to over $200 million dollars this year alone. Some centers across the country have had to close their doors, lay off staff and make cuts to services for lack of affordability. This creates additional strain on those clinics still able to operate thus far with the limited support they have. The health center program is nothing less than vital to California’s health care system. One in six Californians calls a community

health center their medical home. As was mentioned above, they provide the full spectrum of care, including primary care, dental, behavioral health care, vision services, and support services like transportation and dietary counseling. Independent research has shown community health centers to be cost-saving in the long run. Moreover, health centers contribute over $5 billion to California’s economy alone and employ 33,000 people. Contrary to popular belief, federal support does not equate to a one-way street of economic loss. One estimate showed that on a national level, $24 billion could be saved annually with the use of clinics by preventing hospitalization and by using cost saving techniques to lower the price of diagnostic tests and medicines. It is imperative that Congress act now to renew the Health Center Fund. Health centers across the country are standing by waiting and watching as funds run down, and cuts are made. As we begin 2018, the optimism of what a fresh New Year brings is eclipsed by the fear of losing crucial access to health care on a massive level. With assurances of funding only through March, and not knowing if they will receive the full funding, health centers are unable to plan for the future. As community health centers continue to provide for California’s most vulnerable communities, Congress must fight to stabilize health center funding for the future. It’s not too late for Congress to act.

lorida escaped from President Trump’s plan to sell new offshore oil drilling leases because it has a Republican governor who called in a favor. There was also the fact that Trump owns ocean-view property there. But not to worry, California. This state has the California Lands Commission. This usually obscure agency rescued California almost 11 years ago, the last time part of California’s coast was as seriously threatened as some areas now feel. Both Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the federal administration of President George W. Bush then avidly wanted a floating platform off the coast of southern Ventura County to bring liquefied natural gas (LNG) into California and commit consumers to pay billions of extra dollars each year for cooking and heating. It never happened thanks to the Lands Commission, a three-person board with control over the state’s tidelands out to three miles offshore. And today it’s largely because of that same commission that Trump’s plan draws only lukewarm interest from the oil industry. Almost 11 years ago, on a 2-1 vote with thenLt. Gov. John Garamendi and then state Controller John Chiang, both Democrats, voting no and Schwarzenegger’s representative voting yes, the LNG proposal died despite a multimillion-dollar effort from the Australian energy giant BHP Billiton. California consumers were spared at least 30 years of depending on high-priced foreign energy. Environmentalists and consumer advocates insisted California didn’t need LNG, just as they now say offshore oil is not needed. They proved right, as

thomas d. elias fracking and shale deposits in the Rocky Mountain region created a surplus that American companies are now exporting. The Lands Commission didn’t actually ban LNG then, just as it can’t ban new offshore wells today. It did, however, forbid pipelines carrying the gas from crossing tidelands and beaches. It would almost certainly do the same with pipelines carrying oil from offshore derricks. For even if the federal government sells oil leases in federal waters more than three miles offshore, the Lands Commission would still have to let oil companies connect to onshore transport centers, refineries or other oil holding stations. Such permits won’t happen as long as California remains a Democratic-dominated state. Whoever succeeds current Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom next year will serve on the Lands Commission. So will Controller Betty Yee and a representative of the next governor. There are ways other than pipelines to bring the oil ashore, or it could be exported straight from platforms. Tankers could bring oil to refineries here and abroad, for one example. But that would add vastly to the cost of drilling, making new leases unattractive as long as the price of oil remains well below $100 a barrel. Prices this month have hovered just above $60 per barrel. Meanwhile, the odds of the Lands Commission voting in the immediate future to facilitate offshore oil are infinitesimal.

Adding new drill rigs to the coastal scene has been anathema here since the infamous Santa Barbara Channel oil spill of 1968. The beach-fouling, wildlife-killing Refugio State Beach spill northwest of Santa Barbara in 2015 reinforced that already strong opposition. So new oil leases off California are not very attractive. Oil companies also know the available oil isn’t exactly copious. Known reserves are estimated sufficient to power the country for about 20 days at the most. That’s another reason there’s been little interest from the industry for the last few decades. And there’s an unspoken industry fear of political backlash. If they do anything as radically unpopular and environmentally irresponsible as drilling new offshore wells, oil companies fear they could spur consequences from politicians. Yes, Gov. Jerry Brown has talked a good game on conservation and climate change and renewable energy. But his administration has also issued 238 new drilling permits in existing leases since 2012, the number of active oil and gas wells rising 23 percent in the state since Brown became governor. Most of those new wells are on shore. The expansion could quickly end if the next governor is unfriendly to Big Oil, one possible consequence of new offshore leases. But the base of the state’s ability to resist new offshore drilling still resides in the Lands Commission, and there is every reason to believe it would act the same now as when it stymied LNG.

Hotel project gets council’s approval By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — A 128room upscale hotel that could become an unofficial “entrance to San Marcos” received the blessing of the City Council on Jan. 23. The council voted 4-1 to approve the Carté Hotel, despite concerns from a resident about traffic, glare and the hotel’s height. Kristal Jabara voted against the proposal, which calls for a six-story structure along Montiel Road just east of Nordahl Road and north of Highway 78. She said the proposed building was too tall and modern looking for the neighborhood. The San Diego-based company is also building a 240-room, 14 story hotel in downtown San Diego. Carté representative Ried Floco, who is also listed as CEO of PierPoint Management LLC, a San Diego-based hospitality company, spoke to the council about the project. He said it was comparable to a Courtyard Marriott, and that room rates would run between $159 to $179 per night. Floco said the hotel, which will be 60 feet tall with another 10 feet on top for mechanical equipment, is looking to attract clientele from nearby Cal State San Marcos, Palomar Hospital and businesses in Escondido. He estimates the hotel would generate $400,000

the first few years in transient occupancy tax for the city, and as much as $500,000 in the out years. City development services director Dahvia Lynch said the hotel would also pay between $300,000 to $500,000 in public facility fees, which pay for things such as interchange improvement on Highway 78 and other upkeep. The Planning Commission split 4-3 when it approved the project back in December, amid concerns raised by resident Barbara Radtke about the building’s height, the vehicles trips it would generate and the glare off of the building’s glass panels. A city staff report estimates the project will generate nearly 900 daily vehicle trips, but that the increase doesn’t lead to lower levels of services at surrounding intersections. And the hotel, when constructed, would be among the tallest buildings in the city. The council recently approved a parking structure and six-story building north of Cal State San Marcos, which would rival the project in height. Radtke reiterated her concerns to the council at the meeting. “My opinion is that it will stick out like a sore thumb,” Radtke said. “This six-story building will be an annoyance and an occurrence that I would like to avoid.”

Calling all Texas hold ’em poker players By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — On Feb. 10, the Boys & Girls Club of Vista will transform into a Texas Hold ’em Poker tournament. This is a 21-and-over debut event with the objective to raise more money for the organization and its programs for children ages 5 to 18. The tournament will help fund programs such as Youth of the Year, music lessons, character development classes, Project FUN Healthy Lifestyles Cooking Class, competitive sports and more. “Whenever school is closed, the club is open on weekdays,” Director of Development Ellen Clark said. “About a third of our kids are actually considered in extremely impacted socioeconomic situations with a family income of under

$25,000 and two-thirds of our kids qualify for free and reduced-cost lunch.” As a result, Clark said they only charge $50 a year for club membership. However, the total cost to offer after school care every day, and care during school breaks has a price tag of $577 per child. It’s an event like Texas Hold ‘em Tournament which helps bridge this gap. “We really look to the community to help to support the kids in this way, and these are kids that many of whom would be home alone if we weren’t available,” she said. Clark wants potential guests to know that a professional gaming company will be running the tournament. And yes, there will be opportunities for player re-buys

and prizes for the winners, she said. “The evening should be lots of fun,” Clark said, noting the response has been great so far. Clark explained this fundraiser is unique for the club as it is more casual than other events that it usually does, such as galas. Chairing this debut poker event is Danny Pencak. The title sponsor is Destinations in Paradise, and silver sponsors are North County Ford and the Chaffin Family. Food and beverage sponsors are Charity Bracy and Pizza Port. Clark said that more sponsorship opportunities are still available. It was also essential to have the tournament held at the Boys & Girls Club as a way to bring the community

to the club, she said. “It helps show guests where we are and to really not only have a great time for a great cause but to understand a little bit more who we are serving and where we are located,” Clark said. As far as the tournament is concerned, there will be a winners’ table and $5,000 in prizes will be awarded that evening for those who place in first, second and third. Clark said the event can accommodate about 100 players. Those not interested in playing, but still wanting to support the club, can attend the dinner for $35 and watch the tournament. Those interested in the tournament or attending the dinner can visit www. or contact Clark at ellen@bgcvista. com.

Police, fire sign 3-year contracts ‘Pre work’ begins on bridge projects By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — The City Council approved a threeyear memorandum of understanding with the Escondido Police Officers’ Association and the Escondido Firefighters Association on Jan. 24. The three-year contract runs through Dec. 31, 2020, and allows for the employees to contribute more toward health care premiums. In addition, the employees and city will share increased costs for future medical care, according to the staff report. This provides the framework for cost sharing and for jointly addressing and avoiding future increases, the report states. For the police union, the council also approved a budget adjustment appropriating $256,005 to cover increased contract costs. The cost to the General Fund for fiscal year 2018-19 is $503,185, while the total cost over the three years of the contract is $1,935,235. “That $111,000 would come within from other savings,” Councilwoman Olga Diaz said. “I think the key point here is that council maintain a balanced budget and address the CalPERS unfunded liability issues,” City Manager Jeff Epp said. “Those were two of the city’s

key goals. These two contracts need not stand in the way of those goals.” As for the firefighters, a budget adjustment of $111,870 was approved to cover their increased contract costs. The fiscal year 2017-18 General Fund operating budget did not allocate funds for the increase, but the report states budget savings at year-end will cover the costs. In total, the cost for the General Fund fiscal year 2018-19 is $178,865 and for the three yeas is $445,400. The council approved both MOUs during its Dec. 7 meeting. Fire association members and city staff also framed this agreement to help address the long-term budget impacts as a result of CalPERS pension liabilities, according to the report. “Both parties understand the importance of reducing the CalPERS unfunded liability,” the report reads. “To assist in reducing the CalPERS unfunded liability, the City is in the process of preparing a Section 115 Irrevocable Pension Trust for adoption by City Council.” The report states the firefighters association will begin cost sharing the employer’s CalPERS contribution up to 3 percent over the term of the agreement.

Currently, Classic CalPERS Safety members are contributing 9 percent of their salary toward the employee’s retirement benefit. By the end of this contract, Classic CalPERS Safety members will be contributing 12 percent toward their CalPERS retirement benefit. The Escondido Fire Department provides critical public safety actions for the city. The agreement focuses on a median salary for these personnel based on other entities in San Diego. A decent median-based salary level, combined with other terms and conditions of employment, create an excellent working environment for these individuals, according to the report. As for the police, by the end of the contract, Classic CalPERS Sworn members will be contributing 12 percent toward their CalPERS retirement benefits. This will greatly assist both parties in addressing the CalPERS cost, particularly unfunded liability. Like the firefighters, the police will begin cost sharing the employer’s CalPERS contribution up to 3 percent over the term of the contract. Currently, police are contributing 9 percent of their salary toward retirement.

SAN MARCOS — San Marcos crews began pre-construction efforts on a pair of highly anticipated bridge projects in the area known as the Creek District. But the project isn’t going to happen overnight, city officials want local residents to know — the projects are still a way off. Crews started relocating utilities along Discovery Street, Via Vera Cruz and Bent Avenue, which will pave the way for the widen-

ing of Discovery Street from two to four lanes between Via Vera Cruz and Bent, a new four-lane bridge across San Marcos Creek on Via Vera Cruz and a two-lane bridge on Bent Avenue. These streets are often shut down during heavy rains when the creek rises above street level. The project will also create a promenade park and resolve the area’s long-standing flooding issues. During the utility relocation work, according to the

city’s website, westbound and eastbound lane closures along Discovery Street and side streets from Via Vera Cruz to Craven Road will be in place through summer 2018. Work will take place Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Delays in work schedules may occur due to inclement weather. Street and bridge construction is expected to begin in early 2019 and continue through late 2020, weather permitting.

Krouse announces Assembly bid CARLSBAD — North County businessman and Republican Thomas Krouse on Jan. 19 announced his candidacy for the 76th Assembly District seat. The seat, which represents Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Vista and Camp Pendleton, currently is held by Assemblyman Rocky Chavez, R-Oceanside, who announced last week that he is running for Congress in the 49th district. Krouse, of Carlsbad, unsuccessfully ran against Chavez in the 2014 and 2016

general elections. He won 41 percent of the vote in 2016. “I am committed to serving as watchdog in Sacramento, holding our state representatives accountable for every dollar they consider spending of taxpayers’ hard-earned income,” Krouse said. “California’s surplus revenues should be returned to the taxpayers now or placed in the ‘rainy day fund’ — not squandered by overspending politicians and bureaucrats.” Krouse has served in several executive-level roles

— including chief executive — and has more than 25 years experience in finance, technology, health care and education. He has a chartered financial analyst certification. He earned his bachelor’s degree at Stanford University and a masters of business administration degree from the University of Southern California. Former San Diego County supervisor Pam Slater-Price and former Oceanside mayor Jim Wood have endorsed Krouse, according to his campaign.

Vista dispensary raided VISTA — Authorities shut down an illegal North County marijuana dispensary Jan. 25, seizing inventory, arresting a group of employees andbarricading the building to prevent entry. Deputies served a search warrant at Joshua Tree 7G in the 1000 block of Joshua Way in Vista shortly before 10 a.m., according to sheriff’s officials. Inside, the personnel “located a large amount of marijuana, marijuana edibles (and) marijuana paraphernalia, as well as items used in the sales of marijuana and evidence of numerous building- and fire-code violations,” Sgt. Jason Scroggins said.

Four workers were taken into custody and booked into county jail in Vista. Due to “immediate hazards” in the building, the city ordered it closed and had it secured against entry. the sergeant said. Last March, the county Board of Supervisors banned marijuana businesses in all unincorporated San Diego-area communities, though two existing medical-cannabis dispensaries — near El Cajon and in Ramona — were granted waivers allowing them to operate for five more years before closing. The vote was 3-2, with Supervisors Greg Cox and Ron Roberts voting against the prohibition. — City News Service


that take no-growth stands wind up with deteriorating infrastructure and failing schools because they don’t have the money to improve them. “Stagnation is not an option for the city,” he said. “Stagnation is death for a city.” Councilman Chris Orlando was the lone dissenting vote. Siding with residents, he said that the city doesn’t have the same funding mechanisms to pay for infrastructure like it did in the past, and that critical improvements to Highway 78 have been taken off the table indefinitely. “We used to have redevelopment dollars, now we don’t have the ability to do infrastructure at the rate we used to,” Orlando said. “We are going to deal with (the infrastructure woes) for a very, very long time, yet we keep doing things the same way.” In order to pass a referendum, the residents would have to collect the signatures of 5,500 residents, at which time the council would either choose to reverse the approval or hold an election.

Desmond in his address to the public, argued that the public’s calls amounted to a moratorium on development, which would harm the city. He said that many of the people in the audience moved here after he arrived in 1992, in housing developments that were controversial at the time. “They all had the same complaints, similar stories ... that every new neighborhood is going to bring Armageddon,” Desmond said. “Growth is what builds infrastructure. We don’t have money sitting around for roads, growth is what builds new roads. Growth raised the dollars that went to the school district that allowed us to get (new schools).” Desmond said cities

Georgia on their minds after 65 years By Steve Puterski

ESCONDIDO — Over the past 65 years, Georgia’s School of Dance has become a part of the fabric of the city. From grandparents to grandchildren, the dance studio has maintained its presence through good times and bad. Now, owner Sue Gilson is searching for alumni to be part of the studio’s 65th anniversary recital on June 22 and June 23 at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. Gilson was gifted the studio after founder Georgia Copeland died in 1998. Gilson, who had already worked for Copeland for 25 years, said she was in utter shock upon hearing Copeland left her beloved studio in Gilson’s name. “We formed a class on Thursdays just for those who are coming back,” Gilson said. “For the recital, I try to keep the prices down. I want family to come and watch.” The recital will be over two days, open to the public and feature a number of performances from hip hop to ballet to jazz and tap.

application, that it didn’t post state license certificates in public view, that they did not require massage therapists to wear state ID cards and they failed to keep a log of all massages performed, among other allegations. The troubles for King Massage, which is located in a shopping center off of Nordahl Road and the 15 Freeway, started in August 2017, when the city found a number of violations during a routine inspection. According to the staff report, one of the massage parlor’s unlicensed therapists initially ran away during the inspection. Records show that the owner, Xianhe Li, explained during the administrative hearing that it was difficult to list all of therapists working at the location due to

high turnover and that therapists are often called in to fill in from other locations. He also said that therapists often kept their ID cards in their pocket while giving massages because it was inconvenient to wear while giving massages. City officials said the reasons were not valid excuses under city and state law. The Coast News reached out to the establishment’s owner, Xianhe Li, for comment. After explaining that he did not speak English well enough, he said that his son would contact a reporter. The Coast News will update the story with comment from the family when it is received. San Marcos in June 2017 adopted wholesale changes to its massage parlor regulations to counteract a proliferation of the estab-

lishments citywide. Among other things, the new rules required all massage therapists working at an establishment to have state licenses, and capped the number of establishments at one for every 2,500 residents. Additionally, brick-andmortar massage establishments have to obtain a new license, which costs $380 the first year and $308 to renew annually. Out-call massage establishments would be required to obtain a permit, too, but for $125 and $53 to renew. The new rules also bar a proprietor from transferring a suspended or revoked license to another person at the same location for five years, which likely means King Massage would have to close if it does not appeal the city’s decisions to the state Superior Court.

Since May 2013, the CONTINUED FROM 1 city has issued to Stuck in those calls for service spe- the Rough Notices of Violacifically involved crimi- tion ... more than 20 times.” Schlesinger’s attorney, Ronald Richards, slammed the city for “an appalling abuse of discretion.” “The Deputy City Attorney is aware that the entity is managed by professional managers and that Mr. Schlesinger’s addition as a co-defendant with the entity is nothing more than a

crude publicity stunt,” he said. “Besides lacking any criminal intent whatsoever, Mr. Schlesinger was never put on notice that this matter was remotely close to escalating to this level. The muni (sic) code ordinance violation complaint filing represents a poor use of City resources and is the epitome of a prosecutorial overreach simply designed to further a personal agenda at the expense of my client and its manager.” Schlesinger and the city have had a combative relationship for years stemming from his actions, along with the city’s, regarding the country club. Schlesinger originally planned to develop the property with 600 homes in 2012, but ran into fierce resident opposition, with which the city sided. Schlesinger scaled back to the project to 270 resi-

dences, but the Escondido Country Club Homeowner asked the council to declare the golf course open space. Once they did, Schlesinger sued the city and a court ruled in his favor, and the settlement in 2015 had Schlesinger’s company withdraw any opportunity of being the applicant. So, the city and Schlesinger agreed New Urban West would be the developer, although Schlesinger still maintained ownership. Schlesinger was also fined $100,000 in 2014 by the San Diego Air Pollution Control District for dumping five tons of chicken manure on the course. The city also filed a Certificate of Public Nuisance with the county recorder in 2016, issued a $100 administrative fine in 2016 and issued a Notice and Order to Abate in 2017.

Vista school board names new superintendent By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — At the start of 2018, the Vista Unified School District has a new superintendent taking the reins. Replacing Devin Vodicka is Linda Kimble, who began serving her new appointment on Jan. 3. Kimble brings 30 years’ experience in the field of public education. She began as a bilingual teacher for grades one through eight. Over the years, she moved up the ranks becoming a bilingual coordinator, vice principal, principal, assistant superintendent and ultimately superintendent. Before taking on her position in Vista, she served as the Anaheim Elementary School District superintendent. In addition to Anaheim, Kimble has completed her combined 15 years as a su-

perintendent in Monrovia, Keppel and Acton-Agua Dulce Unified school districts. For Kimble, the Vista position was intriguing on many levels. She described the district as having a fantastic interaction of innovation. “It seems that there has been a real interest in making sure that every child gets a unique education, gets personalized learning and gets the education their parents are dreaming for them,” she said. “I wanted to become part of it.” As Kimble settles into her new role in Vista, she said the first thing she will do is find out what the community, parents, staff and students need and want. She avoids stepping into her position with a big list of things to do. Instead, she

Influenza deaths reach 174 REGION — Influenza-related deaths in the San Diego region continued to increase last week, bringing the total to 174 this flu season, though the overall number of cases declined for the third week in a row, according to county data released Jan. 24. An additional 32 deaths and 1,183 lab-confirmed cases were reported last week, down from 2,170 the week before and 2,992 the week before that. The total number of cases to date stands at 13,712, compared to 2,100 at the same time last year, according to county data. Health officials said part of this season’s heightened activity could be due to better testing and reporting

systems, coupled with the fact that infections occurred earlier than last season. “San Diego is experiencing the same severe flu conditions that are being seen across the country,” said Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer. Wooten said it’s still not too late to get vaccinated for protection against the flu this season, which can extend into April. Vaccines are available at doctors’ offices and retail pharmacies. Those without insurance can go to a county public health center to get vaccinated. For a list of locations, visit or call 211. — City News Service coastnewsgroup


listens to the needs of everyone and determines the next steps to take to help enhance the district and the schools. “I do have experience in a number of areas that I think might be helpful to Vista such as developing comprehensive school facility programs,” she said. “I think maybe we have some room to grow in making our schools even better in terms of construction in school, growth and development.” Another area that Kimble called “budding and beginning to grow” is the dual immersion program. It’s a concept where a child learns in two languages during their school experience with the goal of being bilingually fluent on graduation day. “So, if they (students) come as a Spanish speaker,

they’re learning English, or if they come as an English learner, they’re learning Spanish at school,” Kimble said. “All of those children walk away with the added benefits of two languages.” Kimble brings skill in starting dual immersion in schools. She implemented it in four districts and about 10 different school sites. “I’m really excited about this program,” she said, adding that the topic is in discussions right now. Kimble is also looking forward to helping grow the arts, particularly for the younger students. Skills in fine arts, music, dance and drama are noted to transcend into reasoning in areas such as math and logic. While the school board is interested in seeing the arts developed, Kimble will be researching

the overall needs in this area. Kimble said she is also happy to be working with a unified district where so much is already going so well. Her goals are improving on areas that may be experiencing a challenge and encouraging the areas that are doing well. Kimble wants everyone to know that she brings experience and an opendoor policy. She wants to connect with people and ensure the democratic process is there so all views can be expressed. “Parents can reach me through the superintendent’s office anytime if they have a question, concern, idea or complaint,” she said, adding that they can also email or call her. “I’m definitely here for the parents.”

VISTA — Five people were injured in Vista when a wrong-way driver with a 2-year-old child in his car slammed head on into a pickup truck, authorities said Jan. 23. The 2-year-old appeared to sustain the worst injuries in the crash and was airlifted to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego with several broken bones and unspecific internal injuries, San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputy Matthew Harrel said. But the child and the four others injured were all expected to survive. The crash happened around 8:45 p.m. Monday as a 2010 Dodge Caliber crossover vehicle headed north in the southbound lane of South Santa Fe Avenue, Harrel said. In the 700 block of the business-lined two-lane road, the Caliber crashed head on into a 2005 Toyota Tundra. While the 2-year-old in the Caliber was air lifted to the San Diego children’s hospital, the 30-year-old male driver suffered a broken wrist and was taken to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, Harrel said. A 29-year-old female passenger was taken to the same hospital for observation of internal injuries. The 52-year-old driver of the pickup truck and his 57-year-old female passenger both complained of pain and also went to Palomar Medical Center, according to the deputy. “None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening,” Harrel said. It wasn’t immediately known if drugs or alcohol impairment was a factor in the collision. Anyone with information is asked to call the Vista sheriff’s substation. — City News Service

Friends of WRC preps for fundraiser By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Friends of the Women’s Resource Center readies for a philanthropic luncheon in an effort to raise awareness and funds. The “Have a Heart for a Child” event will be held Feb. 15 at the Vista Valley Country Club. According to event chair Marybeth Glenn, the three-course luncheon is coming back due to popular demand. It was an annual event but was on hiatus for a couple of years. The luncheon’s re-emergence reminds people of the nonprofit’s mission. “The WRC is a domestic violence shelter for sexual assault and domestic violence victims — they have an actual emergency shelter and transitional housing in Oceanside,” said Glenn, adding that the center also helps men because they are also victims of domestic violence and assault. According to Glenn, the Friends of the Women’s Resource Center was formed to provide an array of items for children residing in the shelter and the transitional housing. Even though the nonprofit is afforded government funds and money from fundraising efforts, there are still budget gaps. Entering its 11th year, the group was specifically formed to help children. It raises money through fundraising and activities geared toward advocacy. Glenn has been involved with the organization since 2012. “The mission of the Have a Heart for a Child luncheon is to spread more awareness of Friends of WRC to hopefully obtain some new members … ,” she said.

Glenn shared that one of the ways to support the center is through membership for as little as $25 per year. Different levels of giving are also available. “The focus is to raise money for counseling for the children, which is one area of a budget shortfall for WRC,” Glenn said. “We already provide $10,000 a year for counseling, so we would like to increase that amount that we are able to provide to WRC and also to buy playground toys for the transitional housing facility.” Also taking part in the event as a keynote speaker is San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan. Special entertainment will be provided by the Fallbrook High Madrigal’s Choir. Opportunity drawings and auctions items will also be available. Glenn wants people to know she is hopeful that the event, slated around Valentine’s Day, is an optimal one for the children. “It seems apropos to have it at this time because everyone’s heart seems kind of full, so we tied the luncheon to a Valentine’s Day theme,” she said. “The children that the Friends of WRC helps are subjected to things that some people can’t even fathom — a regular childhood and things that most kids take for granted these children do not have such as their backpacks or participating in school sports — so we provide just those basic things.” Those interested in learning more about the “Have a Heart for a Child” can visit www.wrcsd. org / 2 017/ 10 / 19 / have -aheart-for-a-child/ or call (760) 757-3500.

Scripps family estate sale items auctioned for charity By Patty McCormac

RANCHO SANTA FE — Just in Time for Foster Youth and Humble Designs, which both work with the homeless, will be the recipients of the proceeds from an upcoming auction and sale of household furniture starting the weekend of Jan. 26. The items, and there are more than 500 of them, include indoor and outdoor furniture, knick-knacks, decorator touches, art, live plants and other accessories that have been donated by Bill and Kathy Scripps who removed them from a home they have for sale in Rancho Santa Fe. The sale will take place at a 10,000-square-foot warehouse at 220 N. Quince Street in Escondido with a preview from noon to 4 p.m. on Jan. 26, followed by an auction from 4 to 6 p.m. An open sale will take place on Jan. 27 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If there are any remaining items, the sale will continue from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 28. The public is invited to purchase quality furnishings at a great price and help meet one of San Diego’s most pressing needs. Diane Cox started Just

in Time for Foster Youth 15 years ago while she was working as a title representative in the Del Mar/Rancho Santa Fe area. While working she noticed many garages filled with stored furniture, just sitting there. When a friend approached her about helping a foster child who had aged out of the system, who had nothing, Cox remembered the excess furniture. Just in Time began with one small project following another and since it has grown to help the foster youngsters settle into their first home

or college with all the items they need for a dorm room or a small apartment. They can even be assigned a person who can help them like a parent would. “You look at these kids and you expect to see victims, but what you see is faces glowing and enthusiasm looking toward the future,” she said. “A little help means the world to them.” And a little help may be all they need. Most of them finish college and continue to make their way in the world, she said. “Studies show 70 percent of all the people in our prisons were foster children,” Cox said. Now, whenever a realtor sees a situation where furniture is about to be stored or discarded, they know who to call. “The realtors are really the unsung heroes in this,” Cox said. Currently the organization serves 600 youths 18 to 26 with about 600 volunteers. Youths and Just in Time find each other through social workers and word-ofmouth, Cox said. Humble Design expanded to San Diego Coun-

ty from Detroit recently. Founders Treger and Rob Strasberg have a different approach. They identify families, vets, disabled, single people and foster children who are emerging from homelessness for their program. “The only qualification is that they have nothing,” Treger Strasberg said. They first meet with the recipients and ask them about their tastes and preferences in decoration and life. Three days later, while they are out of the apartment or house, volunteer professional decorators arrive with everything they need including furniture, linens, pots, pans and appliances and everything else — even down to Spiderman sheets if a child wants them. “Then we have a reveal,” she said. “They cry. We cry.” Donated household goods are used to transform empty, cold homes into warm, welcoming and uplifting homes so that they can have a fresh start, Treger Strasberg said. “We are not just about furniture, we try to provide dignity,” she added. The best thing, she said, is that only 1 percent of their clients return to the streets as opposed to the 50 percent who return after other programs. So far, more than 700 people have been helped by the organization. Pacific Sotheby’s real estate agents Scott Robeson and Cathy Gilchrist-Colmar, who are selling the Scripps’ home in Rancho Santa Fe, added, “Our first priority is always to help people achieve their dreams, whether it’s families who are making their next move or foster youth and families who are creating a new life for themselves.”

An eager Ott returns to lead Cal State San Marcos baseball sports talk

al State San Marcos University’s Austin Ott’s right arm is back and so is a certain feeling. “The chemistry is really nice,” Ott said of the Cougars. “When we had that run at Vista, it was just like this.’’ Ott returns for CSUSM after being idle last year following Tommy John surgery. With his elbow fixed, the infielder’s bat is back on a squad that opens against Concordia-Irvine on Feb. 2. “It’s about time,” an antsy Ott said. “I’m looking forward to this being a good season.” When chatting about outs with Ott, the conversa-

tion veers to Vista High. As the team’s lone sophomore in 2013, Ott helped it win the Avocado League title, a CIF San Diego San Diego Section banner and a state crown. Vista had two future pro baseball draftees in Brett Seeburger and Billy Roth and Ott completed the rotation. When Seeburger pitched, Ott played right. When it was Roth’s turn, Ott was the designated hitter. Despite his age, Ott was never left out on a championship squad. “It was sweet,” Ott said. “I was definitely the young guy on a really talented team. But it was the chemistry we had that was the difference.’’ Ott will be a difference-maker in the Cougars’ deep batting order. Second-year CSUSM coach Matt Guiliano happily scribbled Ott’s name in the lineup for the first time in a recent scrimmage. “He has raw power,

Ott, who paced the Cougars in 2016 in doubles and three-hit games, couldn’t help himself in accelerating his rehabilitation last season. It was a chill year for Ott. “It was mentally exhausting just watching,” the junior said. “But I think the injury happened for a reason. “Last year’s team was kind of rough because (Guiliano) didn’t really get to recruit after being named the coach at the last minute. Now I get to play on an amazing team, with the players on board for the stuff he brings to the table.” Guiliano gets the 6-foot2, 205-pound Ott back, has revamped the pitching staff and he promises to be aggressive on the bases. “I’m surrounded by guys that want to compete; you can tell (Guiliano) went out and got the right guys,” said Ott, a former Vista High athlete of the year. “And I

love playing for him.” Playing for anyone is a blessing for Ott as he’s cognizant of his second chance. “I will never take baseball for granted again,” he said. “It can all end so quickly that you just never know.” Ott’s gotcha moment came in relief in 2016. He threw a curveball when preparing for a three-inning stint and knew something was amiss. “I tried the curveball again and I could tell something wasn’t right,” he said. “I played second base the rest of the season but I could barely throw the ball. “But being hurt has only fueled what I want to do this year. I think the sky is the

limit for us.” The finish line isn’t necessarily when the regular season ends. With CSUSM being a Division II member, the Cougars are eligible for the playoffs. “That is what we are looking forward to,” Ott said. “We have something to play for.” His teammates will do so with Ott having their back. “Austin is one of those players that’s going to make everyone else better,” Guiliano said. “He will be fun to watch this year.” Contact Jay Paris at com.

Peruvian delights await at new Pisco in Carlsbad

There’s a wide variety to sample, plus a list of crafty cocktails based on the spirit. Pisco Carlsbad also offers Peruvian and other South American wines as well as local and Peruvian beers.

The Pisco Sour Classico is the traditional cocktail of choice and includes Pisco Quebranta, fresh lime juice, simple syrup, egg white and Chuncho bitters. Then you have the whimsical treatment of Pisco with something like their Prickly in Pink with Pisco, prickly pear puree, fresh lemon juice and soda. They have a daily hap

py hour from 3 to 6 p.m. with food and drink specials. Given the inclusion of cevicheria and rotisserie in the name of the restaurant, it’s safe to assume that they excel at both. I’ve written about ceviche before and it ranks right up there in my favorite ways to prepare seafood. Pisco takes it to a whole new level though and in the tradition of Japanese Sashimi, Peruvian ceviche is freshly made to order, combining fresh fish with leche de tigre or “Milk of the Tiger” as they call it and it is fabulous. It comes in seven varieties including Salmon, Bay Scallop & Shrimp, Ahi Nikei, Mixto, Classico and


f you live in North County, there is a good chance you have been to the Sammy’s Woodfired location on Avenida Encinas. It was one of the first in the area to offer wood-fired pizza and had a long run in that location. Restaurateur Sami Ladeki who founded Sammy’s has a fresh new concept in the location and has transformed it into Pisco Rotisserie & Cevicheria with partner Chef Emmanuel Piqueras, a celebrated Peruvian culinary star. Based on the early crowds and a recent dinner I had there it’s a perfect evolution of the location and the menu of classic Peruvian specialties and modern takes on them makes for a fun and delicious dining experience. The restaurant is named Pisco though and that Peruvian white spirit is well-represented on the drink menu, which is extensive. Pisco is a grape-derived brandy that’s a signature drink of Peru.

list of must-try items on the Pisco menu. Causitas, the chilled whipped Peruvian potatoes, are another favorite and come in four varieties including grilled octopus, chicken, crab and ahi tuna. There are also a nice variety of small plates and salads, sandwiches, burgers and large plates. And yes, the small plates include the popular Empanadas. My table sampled several of the large plates including the Arroz Con Pollo (pictured) and

Martini De Tigre. As far as the rotisserie element goes, the Pollo a la Brasa Peruvian Rotisserie chicken is made from natural, hormone-free 3-pound chicken marinated for 48 hours in their Peruvian spice mix. It comes as a half or whole bird cut up and served with mesa sauce, chimichurri, aji and Amarillo mustard and your choice of two sides that include Choclo garlic rice, potato wedges or white beans with bell pepper. And yes, it should be high on the

Lomo Saltado, which is a traditional beef tenderloin stir fry. My adventurous friend went for the Lengua, which is grilled beef tongue. Be sure to leave room for desert at Pisco as they have some really tasty offerings including the Chocolate Hazelnut Cake, Alfajores, Spicy Caramel-Filled Cinnamon Churo, Plantano and Green Apple Cotton Candy. Inca Cola and Chicha Morada are the two most popular sodas in Peru and are part of the beverage lineup as well.

Chef/partner Emmanuel Piqueras has a great backstory as he draws from Peru's oldest culinary traditions to create innovative dishes. Piqueras is helping to spark a new interest though his menu influenced by indigenous agriculture, ingredients and ancient cooking techniques.

Father and son reach ‘term limits’ on council and high school hoops By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — Chris Orlando and his son, Ryan, are at a crossroads that few father-and-son duos face together. Call it ‘term limits’ — figuratively and literally. Chris Orlando is a San Marcos City Councilman in the final year of his last four-year term of office. Ryan Orlando, 18, is a standout basketball player at San Marcos High School, playing his final high school basketball season. Both are plotting their next steps. For Chris Orlando, the next step could be a run — for mayor, that is. For Ryan Orlando, it could be a walk — as in “walk-on,” the term for a nonscholarship member of a collegiate basketball team. But both of them are enjoying going through the transition together. “It’s really interesting, as I am considering my next step and watching him do that, the realization that we’re both figuring out what the next chapter is, is kind of cool,” Chris Orlando said. “My son has a strict ‘no pep talk’ policy, so we keep the pep talks to a minimum, but it is neat we are at a new chapter at the same time. It’s been good.” The Orlandos’ respective political and athletic journeys have virtually paralleled each other. The elder was elected in 2006, around the time that the younger first picked up a basketball. Ryan Orlando’s first sports love was baseball, he said. But as the 6-foot-3 player got older — and taller — basketball became more of a natural fit. “It’s a lot of fun, I really like the team thing, hanging with the guys before and after games, and the camaraderie,” Ryan Orlando said. “I also like the running around a lot

more than the standing around you do playing baseball.” Chris Orlando, who called himself “vertically challenged” at 5 foot 9, said he didn’t really know where he got the basketball ability, but he supported his son’s career, making every game possible as he balanced being a father with being an elected official. “I think every family has a balancing act they have to go through, but I try to make all the games,” Chris Orlando said. “He tells me, ‘Dad, you don’t have to make all of the games,’ but I tell him that I do all the other stuff so I can make the games. It’s not perfect but it works out.” The “other things” include defining policy for one of the fastest growing cities in North County. Chris Orlando served on the five-member City Council during a critical period in the city’s history,

joining at the height of the housing bubble and into the recession, which hit municipalities like San Marcos the hardest. “We weathered some really tough times in the recession, but we were well positioned to come through it in a better place because our financial house was in order,” Chris Orlando said. “There’s no shiny building to show for it, but for me that’s one of the biggest accomplishments from us working together as a team through that time, which was a tough time for every city.” Following the recession, San Marcos has continued its growth. Chris Orlando said some of his proudest accomplishments include the North City project, which has transformed the area immediately north of Cal State San Marcos into a bustling entertainment and residential district that has enlivened

the campus and the surrounding areas, and the general plan — the city’s blueprint, which he called “innovative.” “There have been a lot of changes the last 12 years, and it’s gratifying to be a part of that,” Chris Orlando said. “I don’t consider it the end, obviously I am termed out from a council standpoint that is a milestone, but for me it has been a really good 12 years, and I have enjoyed it a lot.” Chris Orlando’s accomplishments haven’t been lost on his firstborn son, who said he has a strong admiration for his dad doing what he considers a thankless job. “First of all, I don’t know how he does it, whenever I go to a meeting, people yell at him all the time,” Ryan Orlando said. But he said he’s strongly considering politics in his future, with his father as his inspiration. “I can’t exactly say why I like it yet,” Ryan Orlando said of politics. “It’s an odd job because it’s very thankless, but you know what you are doing is very important even though some people might not appreciate you for it. “It’s kind of funny because he’s been doing this as long as I can remember,” Ryan Orlando said. “And now to see him leaving and shifting into something else. “Do you know what you’re doing?” Ryan Orlando asked his dad with a laugh. His father smiled. “I’ll let you know soon,” he said. Chris Orlando said he is mulling whether to run for the city’s elected mayor position, which is currently held by Jim Desmond, who is also terming out of office and running for the County Board of Supervisors. “I haven’t said anything public-

ly, but I am looking at it real closely, and trying to assess from folks in town if there is support (for a mayoral run),” Chris Orlando said. “We’ve done a lot of great things in San Marcos, and I’d like to continue that, so I’ll be saying something really soon about that.” Meanwhile, he’s continuing his work as a councilman and as a proud dad. This week, he sat in the stands at El Camino High and watched his son play a key role in the Knights 78-56 victory over El Camino, the team’s 15th win of the season. “I’ve seen my son grow from 6 years old to 18 years old ... it’s amazing,” Chris Orlando said. “When I first started on the council I put pictures up like everyone else does, they are tiny, my oldest (Ryan) was a first-grader, and now he’s obviously about to graduate high school, he’s 6-3 or 6-4, things have changed, but it’s been amazing watching him grow to be as much a part of the city as I have.” San Marcos is currently ranked in the Top 10 of the San Diego Union-Tribune’s basketball poll. Ryan Orlando is loving every bit of what could be his last season with some of his lifelong friends. “It’s a lot of fun, we expected to be good, but you can’t be prepared for how fun it is going to be,” he said. “We were talking about how we just played our last first league game, and it’s weird that it all might be over in a couple of months.” Known for his perimeter shooting and his tireless motor, Ryan Orlando said he would like to extend his career if at all possible, potentially walking on to whatever school he chooses to attend. “I would love to walk on somewhere, I am going to work hard and see if I can do that, definitely,” he said.

News of the Weird Weird Chemistry In Lawrence County, Tennessee, law enforcement officials are confronting the fallout from a new drug known as "Wasp" (crystallized wasp repellant mixed with methamphetamine). To wit: On Dec. 18, as the Johnson family baked Christmas cookies in their Lawrenceburg kitchen, Danny Hollis, 35, walked into their home and asked for help. NewsChannel 5 in Nashville reported Hollis poured himself a glass of water from the sink before grabbing a knife and cutting across his throat. Teenage son Canaan Johnson said Hollis then ran up to the second floor, heaved an oak dresser down the stairs, and jumped out a window onto a gazebo below, seriously injuring his neck. The Johnsons, meanwhile, had retreated to their car, where they called 911. Hollis chased the car down the street, but got hung up on a barbed wire fence, then stripped naked to free himself and climbed a nearby tree, where officers found him, according to police reports. Hollis fought them off by allegedly throwing his own feces at them, as they tased him out of the tree. Hollis was booked into the county jail on numerous charges. [NewsChannel 5, 1/4/2018] Oooh, Wise Guy, Eh? Khaled A.

Combining the best of traditional and innovative education for you With the pace of change increasing and technology as its primary driver, educating young people for the future needs to combine proven, traditional methods with new, innovative approaches. In the best environments, students learn how to ask discerning questions and discuss and design solutions to complex problems. At Carlsbad’s Pacific Ridge School, students in grades 7-12 practice these skills daily in core classes, integrated projects, STEAM electives and co-curricular activities.

[Fox News, 1/7/2018] The Litigious Society Siera Strumlauf and Benjamin Robles of California, and Brittany Crittenden of New York, saw their complaints go up in steam on Jan. 5 when U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers dismissed their lawsuit against Starbucks for underfilling its lattes and mochas. According to Reuters, the judge cited lack of evidence brought by the plaintiffs, who accused the coffee chain of fraud by making its cups too small and instructing baristas to skimp on ingredients and adhere to low "fill-to" lines on milk pitchers. The suit also claimed milk foam should not be counted toward advertised volumes, an opinion Rogers said reasonable customers do not hold. Starbucks and the plaintiffs had no comment. [Reuters, 1/7/2018] Weird Science Researchers have discovered that 99 percent of green sea turtles born in the northern parts of Australia's Great Barrier Reef are now female. Sea turtles' gender is determined by the temperature at which the eggs are incubated, and warmer temperatures reduce the number of male hatchlings. The author of a new study, marine biologist Michael Jensen, told The News York Times the shift in gender suggests climate change is having a more dramatic effect on sea turtle populations than scientists realized. "We're all trying to wrap our heads around how these populations are going to respond to those changes," he said. Researchers warn that continued global warming will threaten the persistence of these populations. [New York Times, 1/10/2018]

Man pleads guilty to robbery SAN DIEGO — A man who held up a Mira Mesa credit union office, then led police and sheriff’s personnel on a high-speed, four-city pursuit that ended with his arrest in Carlsbad, pleaded guilty Jan. 23 to robbery and reckless evading charges. Thomas Joseph Dufek, 29, faces five years and eight months in prison when he is sentenced Feb. 22. Authorities said Dufek robbed the Navy Federal Credit Union branch in the 10800 block of Black Mountain Road about 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 3 and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. When officers caught up with Dufek’s white Toyota pickup truck a short time later, he refused to yield, instead fleeing to the north over city streets and onto northbound Interstate 15,

San Diego police Lt. Eric Hays said. The suspect sped through northern San Diego and Escondido, then headed west on state Route 78 and crossed into San Marcos, where sheriff’s personnel began tailing him. The pursuit, which reached speeds in excess of 100 mph, came to an end after Dufek ran over a tire-flattening spike strip laid in his path by officers. He pulled to a stop on Palomar Airport Road, bailed out of his crippled truck and ran off to the south, climbing over fences and traipsing through residential yards. Deputies finally caught up with the suspect in the area of Rancho Del Canon and Rancho La Presa streets, sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Giannantonio said. — City News Service


gives the students time to tend to their schoolwork. For the older students, though, he is a source of knowledge of how professional dance companies operate. He said it is important for those who want to purse a career in dance to research their auditions to maximize their chances of success. “It’s just like a home base and a place where people can bring their kids,” Russell said. “It’s not just a place where we teach dance, we mentor them. Every kid who has gone through the program has gone off to college and is successful.” And while some students may choose to pursue a career, many are there for the love of dancing. Jessica Smith’s two children attend and can’t get enough. She said it’s a home away from home and provides confidence, but also drives home commitment and dedication to her youngsters. And the studio is always willing to help when it can. Alumni who want to participate are urged to contact Gilson at


al studio in Escondido. For the past 40 years, it has called 142 E. Grand Ave. home, but recently expanded to the building next door giving the studio four dance floors. Dancers range in age from 18 months to adults, while the disciplines include ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, Pilates, jazz funk and contemporary, to name a few. “They are here to learn to dance, learn respect for each other and have fun,” Gilson said. “We work around everybody’s schedule. I think everybody in Escondido has been through Georgia’s at one time or another.” Instructor Anthony Russell, who has taught at the studio for 20 years, said the studio is a source of pride and tradition in the city. No matter the skill level, he said all are welcome, although a majority of the 150 students are children.

Another day it was car insurance cards, junk mail and a banana. The next day it had a couple of W-2 forms, some Styrofoam balls for a school project — and a familiar-looking banana. Next came scissors, a pencil and the same abandoned banana, looking a little peaked. By the fourth day, I tossed the fading banana and cleaned the basket where some squishy banana had stayed behind. Along with orphaned fruit, my poor basket is

likely to be home now to a spoon, coupons for fast food, three French fries, oily rags and the TV remote. My once-tidy basket is now where I go first to look for my daughter’s cell phone, a missing sock or Jimmy Hoffa. I am plotting to buy stair baskets that will be clearly labeled for each inhabitant of said house. Then, perhaps, I will once again be able to find the thing I keep forgetting that I put in the basket by the front door.

have, for many years, had a basket near my front door. I put things in it that I need to remember to take with me when I leave. The contents are getting stranger and stranger, as my household expands with a retired husband and couple of 30-somethings. In the past, it might contain envelopes, a box of tissue or reusable grocery bags. Or you might find clean towels and church linens and a small vase of flowers for a friend. Another day it might have been some reading glasses and an apple for my snack, plus my water bottle. Now, it gets fed things for both coming and going and, I’m pretty sure, from

two puppies inside a box at a dumpster in the nearby Midway District. If police determine the incidents are unrelated, PETA will offer up to $5,000 for information on each case, the group said. Rescue groups are fostering the dogs, who will be put up for adoption once they are old enough. Those with information are asked to call county Animal Services at (619) 767-2740. — City News Service

VISTA — Vistans who have an interest in how their city government operates are invited to take part in an eight-week Vista Leadership Academy. The spring complimentary class sessions begin on March 7. Enrollment is open now and ends Feb. 28. The Vista Leadership Academy was first established in 2008. Every year, sessions are slated in the fall and spring on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. However, one citywide tour will take place during the day. City Communications Officer Andrea McCullough said the Academy is for Vista residents and Vista business owners. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. The academy offers residents and business owners a way to become more familiar with their city. Topics will include city

policy, finance, touring facilities and development projects, and discussing issues such as traffic and growth. McCullough said the law enforcement session will consist of a tour of the detention center. The city manager or director of a particular department will lead the discussion for specific sessions. McCullough described the classes as interactive in which residents and participants are encouraged to ask questions. The last day of the academy generally falls on a Tuesday so that graduation will include recognition during a City Council meeting. Space is limited to 20 attendees. Those interested are advised to apply ahead of time since there is usually a waiting list. McCullough said after the academy, participants can take part in an evalu-

ation. Over the years, this feedback has been useful — participants say they know more about their city than they did before. In addition to meeting council representatives, graduates also learned more overall about how their city operates. “The Vista Leadership Academy is definitely a really good opportunity to learn more about the city you live in or work in — you can ask those questions you might have,” she said. During the course of the academy, participants are asked what their vision is for the city of Vista. McCullough said this is vital aspect to the city. McCullough also said it’s important for the city to get its residents involved. “By knowing what is going on, when they read or hear about information, they will understand it more fully,” she said. “Or if they don’t, they will know

who to contact.” Those interested in learning more about the Vista Leadership Academy and wanting to apply can call (760) 639-6125 or visit /residents / leadership-academy.

nity. He loved Leucadia and his retirement of 22 years. He remained an avid reader and traveler, exercised regularly at the YMCA and pursued his many interests in painting, wood working, investing and creative writing. He also volunteered for the Sheriff Dept., Batiquitos Lagoon Project, Wounded Warrior Project and others.

Hartmut “Harry” Riedlbauer passed unexpectedly on Monday, December 11th, 2017 in Encinitas, California. He was born on November 3rd, 1936 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. He was a loving father, devoted partner and a great friend to all. Hartmut endured the war as a young child in Germany and immigrated to the US when he was 26 years old. Within months of his arrival, he was drafted into the US Army, where he learned to speak English fluently and colloquially. He had a long career in the automobile business and many of his longest friendships originated there. It was his first boss in the States that suggested the alias “Harry Bauer” and the name stuck

for the rest of his life. Hartmut was a music aficionado with a deep knowledge of jazz, a quick ear and an amazing musical memory. His love of music was contagious and the source of much pleasure and bonding with his family and friends. Music was always playing and will continue to play on. A resident of Encinitas since the 1970’s, he loved the ocean and spent much of his free time walking and swimming at the beach. He also had a deep love of the desert and later lived part-time in Borrego Springs. He was an active part of the community there and met his partner of 13 happy years, Margaret “Peg” Nelson. They enjoyed hiking, entertaining friends, playing Scrabble and traveling the world. He is survived by his son, Roger Riedlbauer; daughter-in-law, Sarah Harding; grandsons Lukas Hart Riedlbauer and Quinn William Riedlbauer of Oakland, CA; nephew, Dr. Joerg Riedlbauer and wife Ute Riedlbauer of Penzing, Germany; and the many friends and family members whose life he touched. His memorial will be private. In lieu of flowers and in honor of Hartmut’s generous spirit, please consider making a donation in his memory to a charity of your choice.

Grape Day Park wins concert grant ESCONDIDO — The Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation named Escondido as one of 15 towns across America to win a Levitt AMP Grant Award of $25,000 in matching funds for the California Center for the Arts, Escondido to present a free concert series at Grape Day Park. In June, the Levitt Foundation invited nonprofits to submit proposals that would reflect the

three goals of the Levitt AMP awards: amplify community pride and the city’s unique character; enrich lives through the power of free, live music; and illustrate the importance of vibrant public places. The public voted on the submitted proposals during a three-week period in November, selecting their favorite projects online. Read about the winners at http://levittamp. org.


a vocal career. In 1993, he gave his first concert with the Italian pop star Zucchero. In 1997, he recorded “Time to Say Goodbye” with Sarah Brightman, who heard the Italian version on the radio and convinced Bocelli to sing the English version, and the rest is music history. For nearly three centuries, the Bocelli family has made classic Italian wines in the same village farm vineyard in Tuscany.

JAN. 26, 2018

His mother Edi and brother Alberto still live and work there. They grow and make Sangiovese, Canaiola, Malvasia and Trebbiano varietals. Lately, after much research, they are launching their Cabernet Sauvignon. Their top seller is the Sangiovese Di Toscana, widely available in the U.S. ($13). It has a young fruity cherry and earthy smoky flavor with a savory aftertaste and brown sugar notes. Bravo to the Bocelli brothers for keeping the price low and reasonable. They have now expanded to include

other vineyards in the region, sourcing only the best and most suitable for Sangiovese. The grapes are only hand-harvested without irrigation, pesticides or chemical agents. Bocelli states that “when I return home after long trips, the joy I receive from the taste of my wines is hard to match. It brings me back in time to memories of my father respectfully pouring the wine. It is now my honor to be an ambassador for these wines.” For more, visit

SHAFER LED AGED WINES AT MERITAGE Meritage Wine Market in Encinitas does wine events every Friday evening, each one with a different theme that brings out the tasters in droves. They recently opened a number of perfectly aged wines from their cellar, exhibiting a superior flavor profile. From a Cuvee Brut Champagne to a 2009 award-w inning Stags Leap District Napa Va l l e y A Cabernet from C a b e r n e t Shafer Vineyards Sauvignon, in Napa Valley. the debate Courtesy photo was on for favorite of the evening. A south of France, Rhone Valley Chateauneuf-du-Pape got my attention in a hurry, until I came to that 2009 Napa Valley Shafer “One Point Five” Cabernet from the Stags Leap district. Here is strong, polished black fruit with mocha and spice and a cedar flavor note. This eightyear-old had smooth tannins and a pleasingly long finish ($85). Doug Shafer, the winemaker and son of owner John Shafer, has been at it since 1983. A trick of the trade for vigorous grape production is to plant vines close together and have them compete with other crops like bell beans, clover and oats for water and nutrients, pushing them to produce small berries and rich flavors. The 1.5 Cab was introduced in 2007 and has become the standard bearer for Shafer quality. See shafervineyards. com.
