Water treatment plant cited

Escondido discusses city murals

City News Service

SAN MARCOS — The San Diego County Water Authority announced on July 8 that the Twin Oaks Valley Water Treatment Plant was cited by the state for a valve malfunction in April. The state’s Division of Drinking Water cited Twin Oaks and the Water Authority on June 4 for a malfunction that lasted roughly 15 hours between April 21 and 22 that resulted in the plant’s ozone levels falling below state-required levels. The chemical compound is used to kill bacteria to make water potable, but it must be mixed with the water being treated at a certain level to be effective. According to the Water Authority, which owns the Twin Oaks plant north of San Marcos, local water quality was not compromised during the malfunction and plant directors promptly reported the issue to state water regulators. The citation is the first for Twin Oaks in more than a decade. A DINOSAUR MODEL greets guests at the Roynon Museum of Earth Science & Paleontology in Escondido.

ESCONDIDO — At its July 8 meeting, the Escondido Public Art Commission discussed plans to boost volunteer efforts at the Queen Califia’s Magical Circle public art display in Kit Carson Park. The Commission also deliberated about the status of its planned murals program rollout plan, as well as vandalism done to a public art piece along Escondido Boulevard. Danielle Lopez, assistant director of community services for the city of Escondido, said that she had been doing research on other city programs since the murals program had received discussion at the last Public Art Commission meeting. Those included programs in places such as El Paso, Texas and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “We’re also trying to incorporate the policies the city already has in place, so it’s become a bit of a larger project than I had originally anticipated,” said Lopez. “But, I hope by our October meeting we will have a document that is complete and ready to go.” Because the Public Art Commission can only meet formally once every three months under city law, Public Art Commission member Ana Marie Velasco raised the prospect of forming an ad hoc committee on public murals to allow for more frequent meetings and discussions about the murals program. “Now, in order for TURN TO MURALS ON 7

Escondido photography gallery opens darkroom, celebrates 1st anniversary By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — Downtown Escondido now has a photography darkroom, a place where photographers of various skill levels can try their hands at the throwback development technique. The darkroom is the second in North County, the other one is at Palomar College and mostly geared toward student use. Hubbed at The Photographer’s Eye on Grand Avenue, the new darkroom is set up for creating black and white photos. In the age of digital photography, darkroom development harkens back to a different era. The process involves only having a finite amount of film with which to shoot photos and the need for careful and patient hands in the darkroom. Donna Cosentino, an Escondido resident who founded The Photographer’s Eye a year ago and formerly worked as a photography professor at Palomar College, called the process “not just alchemy, but magic.” She said that for some of her best photos she has ever developed, it took her a whole day —sometimes stretching from the morning until the middle of the night — to create them. Cosentino said that failure, and the ability to learn from mistakes, is a crucial part of the photo

development process. “With film, you have to wait until you’re done to see if you had success and if gardens.

Located at 326 East Grand Avenue, The Photographer’s Eye is surrounded by what has quietly become a North County

arts destination. It sits across the street from The Ritz Theater — currently being redeveloped as an epicenter for on-stage performances and movie screenings — as well as the ArtHatch Art Complex’s Distinction Gallery and the Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery, all at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Juniper Street. On July 13, The Photographer’s Eye will host a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. for the opening night of a gallery featuring the work of San Diego photographer John Mireles. Called “Surreptitious,” The Photographer’s Eye describes Mireles’ exhibit as a series of “stories told through a keen eye

with great affection for a city known for its diversity of lifestyles.” The name of the exhibit fits the theme of Mireles’ photographs. “What I’m excited about with this show is that I’m bringing a little bit of New York City to San Diego and I’m experimenting with the way that photography is presented,” said Mireles. Mireles added that he will exhibit his work in untraditional ways by “blowing it up larger than life so that viewers can step into the work and intimately experience it.” He also expressed excitement about the addition of The Photographer’s Eye into the photographic arts scene, calling it “much needed,” while

lauding the Cosentino’s efforts. “Having a place just for photography is a big plus for the community. We need more spaces like this,” said Mireles. “As an artist, it’s great to be encouraged and supported by a gallery director who really appreciates the work and is eager to bring it to life.” The Photographer’s Eye is open to the public Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; as well as every Second Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Classes available for a fee include Introduction to Film Development, Darkroom Printing, Beginning Photography Film and Beginning Photography Digital and more.

Vista City Council passes ADU ordinance By Steve Puterski

VISTA — The city is slowly moving forward with its regulations regarding accessory dwelling units. Also known as granny flats, the council tabled its ADU ordinance to its Aug. 13 meeting. The City Council is in recess throughout July. Councilman John Franklin pushed for a delay in the vote so he, and the council, could gather more information on the potential impacts of several issues, along with give residents in District 1 an opportunity to voice their concerns. John Conley, Vista’s director of community development, said during the June 25 City Council meet-

ing, the maximum size for an accessory dwelling unit is 50% of the size of the primary residence or 1,200 square feet, whichever is less. The development impact fees run $14,700 per unit, however, the City Council directed staff during its April 9 meeting to research waiving impact fees for affordable units. The city’s housing division recommended a10-year affordability covenant instead of five years to ensure stability for low-income residents. Even if a property with a ADU on the premises is sold within the 10-year restriction, the new owner would still have to abide by the regulation until the 10 years is up.

“The housing division’s intent is to preserve affordable housing for as long as we can,” Conley said. “That’s the purpose of the 10-year deed restriction.” New state legislation, which was introduced by the city of Encinitas, made it easier for residents to build ADUs. The new units would also count toward Vista’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA), which is determined by the county. The R-1-B zones were also discussed and Conley said about 40% of the current lots would qualify for an ADU. However, Councilman John Franklin said he would like to revisit the R-1-B zones later due to their smaller lot sizes, park-

Club helps dads with parenting VISTA — Programs aimed at helping and assisting women and children aren’t too difficult to find, but what do you do if you’re a father looking for parenting education and supportive services? Vista Community Clinic (VCC) has a team of outreach staff devoted to working with the community to address the needs of different populations firsthand. The health care organization found that male caregivers were one of the particular populations interested in learning about parenting, child development, and in need of supportive services to help decrease the challenges that come with being a parent. In response, VCC created the Dads’ Club program to assist the men in

this position reach their goals by providing flexible case management through home visits, education, and strong support toward self-sufficiency. Dads’ Club is set up specifically for fathers and father figures 16 years of age and older who are interested in learning about developing healthy relationships with their children, partners, and others; positive parenting; and resources and services in their community. The program aims to strengthen the family unit, working with fathers who are parenting or co-parenting. Program staff assists participants with a variety of things including: financial literacy, resume and job applications, health insurance, transportation, parenting

and healthy relationship workshops, managing child support, and more. Above all else, VCC is committed to helping our communities realize their full potential with the understanding that sometimes all it takes is information and a little support in the right direction. There is no standard participant in the program. Each father has his own story, and the Dads’ Club team works to develop a plan to meet his needs and interests. Program participants use the social support service they are provided as a helpful step up to improve their wellness, the wellness of their family, and become self-sufficient. Dads’ Club has helped 727 dads to date.

REACH supports community youth VISTA — The VCC Project REACH (Recreation, Employment Readiness, Academic Achievement, Communication and Healthy Lifestyle) youth development program provides support to middle and high school students from low-income backgrounds to help them succeed in school while setting goals for their futures. The 2018-2019 school year ended with 21 REACH graduates being honored with a ceremony May 16 in decorated classrooms at

the Vista Community Clinic Vale Terrace location. Since it began in 1996, Project REACH has touched the lives of more than 3,000 boys and girls by steering them toward success and preparing them for college and careers. Students enrolled in the program receive after-school supervision from mentors that have already gone through the college process, understand the community, and are able to supply the tools to help. REACH is more than an after-school program, it’s an after-school community. Counselors provide homework help, advice on choosing classes, applying for college, financial aid, and more. Students also receive education on how to prevent drug use, gang involvement, and teen pregnancy. While field trips to university campuses, businesses and amusement parks help students realize a world beyond their neighborhoods, volunteer service projects foster a sense of communi-

ty, helping students discover ways that they can have a positive impact locally. The program isn’t as simple as just signing up. Students have to make the choice themselves to show up every day and stay committed to the process. Seniors are rewarded for their dedication at the end with a graduation of their own as they prepare to move on to pursue their goals after high school. Those that receive a certificate of completion at the REACH graduation have completed 180 hours of life and academic skills (per school year). The path to college graduation is not simple, especially for students with limited resources. REACH steps in to help ease concerns over finances, troubled neighborhoods, the need for academic support, and positive outlets. The program even includes scholarships, made possible by VCC donors, to help alleviate financial burdens faced by students, many of them the first in their families to enter college.

ing concerns and upsetting residents. Councilwoman Corinna Contreras said those residents should have the same opportunity as other zones, but did say parking was a concern. “I understand the concern … I really think closing the R-1-B zone off from the ADUs for those property owners, then very few will probably come forward for a conversion,” she said. Mayor Julie Ritter said her concerns centered on parking, especially in District 1 with the R-1-B zones, and the cost of rent, which is on the higher end of the AMI spectrum, and the process of qualifying by submitting personal finance records.

However, she said the garage units are cheaper for homeowners to renovate and add to the city’s housing stock. Franklin also favored those conditions, including the 10-year restriction, but was worried about allowing garages to be converted, thus potentially reducing parking and increasing street parking where allowable. He said the council could review the garage units down the road in a manner of caution. Councilwoman Amanda Rigby was not in favor of garage units and said she is opposed to ADUs on any level. “At some point that goes back into the housing market and will be rent-

ed out at market rate,” she said. “You can see the unintended consequences. You can foresee what would happen in our community.” Homeowners associations are currently not subject to the new state legislation allowing more ADUs, but Conley said current legislation in Sacramento is pending and would supersede an HOAs authority to not allow ADUs. The city, though, exempted HOAs from its ordinance. Rents, meanwhile, range from $1,499 for one person earning less than $59,000 per year to $2,140 for a family of four, as long as those individuals meet the 80% of Maximum Annual Household Income threshold.

More trains, buses coming from NCTD By Steve Puterski

CARLSBAD — The North County Transit District is rolling out a fiveyear budget plan to improve service throughout the region. Damon Blythe, chief operations officer of NCTD, updated the Carlsbad City Council on June 25 and said the district faces many challenges including declining ridership, which is down across the country as well, he said. NCTD’s plan is to increase ridership along with improving the frequency of bus and train service. In addition, NCTD will implement a comprehensive program addressing first and last mile service. First and last mile refers to getting people from their homes or office to transit in an effective manner. “Just because you don’t ride transit doesn’t mean you don’t benefit from transit,” Blythe said. “Transit takes cars off the road, it reduces carbon emissions, so everybody benefits from it.” Another big goal is addressing the Coaster train between Oceanside and San Diego during peak times, Blythe said. Currently, riders must wait between 25 to 60 minutes, while the new plan calls for train service every 30 minutes during rush hour and every 60 minutes in off hours. As for the Sprinter, the goal is to reach a 15-minute service, although Blythe said NCTD will not reach it in five years. The reason, he said, is due to NCTD conducting a study to determine where to build more

tracks, plus ordering new trains. Currently, the Sprinter runs every 30 minutes during weekdays and weekends, except the timeframe is every hour during the morning and evenings on weekends. Currently, NCTD runs 22 Coaster trains per day and the increase would add 20 trains into service. “The key to getting people on a train, or any transit service, is frequency, speed and reliability,” Blythe add-

carbon-free by 2040. Blythe said NCTD will start with procuring six battery-electric buses by 2020-21 and testing their viability. “We’ll run those around our entire service area to determine how they work,” he added. “Then, we’ll start making some decisions of whether we want to continue down the battery-electric path or go to the hydrogen fuel cell path.” NCTD is also pursuing a first-last mile program

ed. “Where going to need to make some improvements on Breeze (bus service).” AS for the first and last mile program, Carlsbad recently approved a pilot program with NCTD and the San Diego Association of Governments to promote transit from the Poinsettia station to business parks. Blythe said NCTD will also conduct several studies including land use and transit integration, a strategic multimodal implementation plan and public benefits. As for an increase in new locomotives and rail cars, Blythe said NCTD is partnering with SANDAG to receive funding and purchase the trains. Also, NCTD will increase its fleet of battery electric or hydrogen buses, per a state mandate requiring all buses be

with California State University San Marcos in partnership with SANDAG and the city of San Marcos. He said the micromobility program will likely feature an autonomous vehicle from the Sprinter station to campus. Also, he said upgrades to NCTD’s website and customer relationship management software will also help expedite service, booking travel and next generation fare collection. “We’ll be monitoring some of the data in terms of understanding where the patterns are and where people are traveling,” said Carlsbad Councilwoman Priya Bhat-Patel, who is the city’s representative on the NCTD board of directors. “I’m really excited to see that come to fruition.”

Wildfires, and the Aftermath By Marie Waldron

Fifteen of California’s 20 most destructive wildfires have occurred since 2000, with ten since 2015. Economic costs to homeowners, utilities, ratepayers, insurers and local governments resulting from the destruction of thousands of homes makes preventing fires and dealing with their costly aftermath top-priority issues in Sacramento. Proposals discussed include creating a Power Company Safety and Accountability standard requiring safety investments by utility companies, mandating accountability for their wildfire safety record, and protecting ratepayers from sole financial responsibility for utility-caused fires. A new Wildfire Safety Division within the CPUC could

be created to oversee and enforce safety compliance by investor-owned utilities to develop wildfire safety performance metrics, improvements to wildfire mitigation plans and other safety initiatives. Discussions also center around creating a catastrophic wildfire victims fund to assist homeowners and insurers by streamlining fire victim recovery. Instead of insurance companies filing lawsuits against utilities to recoup their losses, a process that takes years, claims could be filed directly with the fund. Concern over homeowner insurance being non-renewed is also a big issue. The cost of inaction will be a significant hit to ratepayers as utility companies will risk being downgraded in their credit rating, meaning it will cost more to obtain capital for

urried, slapdash amendments to a proposed state Wildfire Fund plan pushed by Gov. Gavin Newsom improve it a little, eliminating secret meetings by a now-discarded new commission and forcing utilities to pay a full $5 billion for fire safety measures. But the plan still does not answer two key questions ignored by Newsom and the state Legislature: Why should consumers pay for the negligent conduct of utility companies like Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric? And do these companies deserve to survive, considering how the largest two of them admit they’ve behaved? Other huge problems also lurk in both the amended measure, known as AB 1054, and in Newsom’s original plan: While the putative new Wildlife Fund Commission is gone, replaced by a fire advisory board with no real powers, vital decisions on whether utilities act responsibly remain with the state Public Utilities Commission despite its long history of corrupt favoritism of those same utilities. The latest plan would let the PUC decide when utilities can issue bonds to pay for wildfire liabilities, with electric customers obliged to pay them off via increased rates. That’s on top of a mostly customer-paid fire claims fund that could exceed $30 billion. There is no limit on how much in bonds the PUC could authorize, money consumers would have to repay as certainly and as regularly as they pay taxes. But no company could issue bonds if the PUC finds it was irresponsible.

california focus thomas d. elias Lawmakers giving the PUC these powers apparently don’t remember that this commission in secret and illegal meetings with SoCal Edison officials agreed to force consumers to pay two-thirds of the cost of decommissioning the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, closed in 2012 because of an Edison blunder. The PUC years later conceded this was wrong, changing its earlier decision to charge consumers about one-third less than before, a difference exceeding $1 billion. Then there was a federal investigation that found PUC negligence as much at fault as PG&E’s criminal behavior for the 2010 San Bruno gas pipeline explosion which killed eight persons and destroyed much of that San Francisco suburb. All this came before the huge wildfires of 201718 drove PG&E into bankruptcy because of expected fire claims in the tens of billions of dollars. Now, the only limit on the PUC’s bond-authorizing ability in the Wildfire Fund plan, original or amended, is that it expires after 2035. So the commission’s long history of favoring utilities and getting investigated for criminal collusion with Edison is ignored. AB 1054 would give the PUC a new way to help the utilities it consistently favors. One other problem: While the current Wildfire Fund proposal forces customers to pay many billions, it does not name a single fire prevention

move the utilities must take, even though their lines started multiple billion-dollar-plus blazes. Instead, the companies would bring safety plans to the PUC only once every three years, the aim to “harden” power lines, whatever that means. “This entire plan does not focus on fires, but on ways to let the utilities keep making billions,” says former San Diego City Attorney Michael Aguirre, whose legal work caused the reduction in consumer payments for San Onofre. He threatens a lawsuit to cancel the new plan, if it becomes law. “It’s as if no one really wants to stop the fires.” Meanwhile, Newsom keeps urging quick passage of AB 1054, with its current amendments and others likely to come. He says it must pass before the lawmakers’ impending summer recess or Wall Street will degrade utility bond ratings. This rush to poor judgment again places utility interests ahead of consumers’, with no explanation why the present companies should be allowed to survive and keep their monopolies intact. For despite a Newsom suggestion to the contrary, power would not disappear if the companies do: state law allows a government takeover of their systems if those firms fail, with employees guaranteed their jobs. It all means slowing down this bill is a must to allow measured consideration of alternatives to the current system that frequently foments criminality and negligence.

Tap along with the Toe Tappers dancing group By Samantha Taylor

VISTA — A tap dancing group based in North County is looking for more senior women in North County who want to tap their toes. The Toe Tappers is a tap dancing group comprised of senior women ranging from 57 to 80 years old, with some past members joining as young as 55 and others reaching their 90s before retiring from the group. From Escondido to Carlsbad, the women who make up the group live all over North and Inland County and meet in Vista to practice. The Toe Tappers have been performing in San Diego and Riverside Counties for 35 years. According to Manager Fran Vitek, the Toe Tappers first started as an aerobic dance class in a retirement community mobile home park amongst several residents who wanted to exercise close to home. Sometime later, a few of the women in that original group who had previous tap dancing experience started demonstrating basic tap moves to the others. “They showed you what you could do with a stepball-change and a shuffle hop,” Vitek said. “One thing led to another and the group went from a basic aerobic class to tap.” The group then started developing routines and performing for audiences, and eventually the Toe Tappers were born.

Today, the Toe Tappers perform for senior communities, club meetings and luncheons. The group has three seasons: its patriotic season, which includes performing numbers like “Yankee Doodle” at Memorial Day and Fourth of July celebrations; its Broadway season, which the group starts working on beginning in January and includes performances through September; and its holiday season, which takes up the end of each year for the group. “We call ourselves ‘seniors entertaining seniors,’” said Hope Malis,

dance captain of the group. In addition to their dances, the tappers also put a lot of effort into their costumes. Most of the dancers have three to four costume changes throughout a show. “We dress professionally and wear glamorous costumes,” Vitek said. Currently, the group has eight members and is looking for two more to make it a 10-member group. Interested dancers should be seniors with some previous tap dancing experience. “We would certainly like to get another senior who hasn’t danced for a

while or who is currently dancing,” Vitek said. Vitek has danced on and off throughout her life. She enrolled her daughters in lessons when they were younger, which kept her tied to the dancing world. She also occasionally took classes when time permitted. Vitek first joined the Toe Tappers in 2009 after seeing an article in the paper about the group needing dancers. She contacted them at the same time as another woman, Margaret Clive, who saw the same article. The two auditioned



at The Gre

together and became good friends throughout their time with the group. Many of the other women, like Vitek, also danced when they were younger but went through extended hiatuses due to raising children, career changes and other life occurrences. “I hadn’t danced for 50 years and then I went to a class and found that I could still do it,” Clive said. Malis, who is set to become the group’s choreographer once she creates her own dance material in the fall, will teach a dance to those who are interested in

joining before they officially audition. Malis explained that she is looking for some basic skills as well as a passion for dance in potential members. “There’s a passion for dancing that needs to be there,” Malis said. Each member also pulls her own weight behind the scenes and works together with the others to produce a show. “We’re a happy little group,” Clive said. “We are,” Vitek agreed. “We get along well.” The Toe Tappers are delighted by the reactions they get from the seniors for whom they perform. “It’s just remarkable to watch the changes come over them,” Vitek said. Vitek recalled seeing a non-verbal woman moving her hands and feet while sitting in a wheelchair in the front row of a Christmas show the group performed at a senior community in Escondido. When Vitek went to meet the woman after the show, she learned from the woman’s daughter that the woman had owned a dance studio for 40 years. She may not have been talking at 101 years old, but she was still moving along to the beat. Those who are interested in joining the Toe Tappers should contact Vitek at (760) 845-5705 or email, or visit the group’s website,

New NCAA-sanctioned high school ‘team camp’ By Aaron Burgin

REGION — Brandon Angel and his Torrey Pines Falcons teammates had finished their final game of the Section 7 Team Camp in Phoenix 20 minutes earlier on June 23 when his phone rang. On the phone was Joe Pasternack, the head coach of the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos, calling to offer Angel, who just completed his junior year, a basketball scholarship. As it turns out, Pasternack’s call was just the beginning. Over the next four days, 12 Division 1 college basketball coaches would call Angel and offer him basketball scholarships. “It felt good to see the hard work and time I’ve put in pay off, and it’s something to motivate me into the future,” said Angel, a 6-foot-8 forward. “The team camp was a great opportunity, especially for me, because coaches from all across the country were there, and if you capitalized on the opportunity, good things would happen.” Angel’s impressive haul highlights a recent change to the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s basketball recruiting calendar that puts high school athletics back in the recruiting spotlight. Spring and summer have long been the domain of what is known as grassroots, or travel basketball, where players from different teams join forces and play for various basketball clubs. Those clubs play in large tournaments where college coaches are allowed to observe and evaluate players. These evaluations play a major role for college

programs as they determine which players they will recruit to their programs. The month of June, however, has been a time for players to return to their high school clubs and participate in team camps and summer leagues, which college coaches can’t attend unless they are hosting the camp. But last year, the NCAA announced sweeping changes to the recruiting calendar in the wake of a FBI investigation into college basketball recruiting and grassroots basketball. In an effort to shift the focus of recruiting away from the grassroots events, the NCAA announced that college coaches would be allowed to attend tournaments during two weekends in June. Those tournaments would have to be sanctioned by the state’s high school athletics governing body, and only schools that were under the body’s jurisdiction could attend the events. The June periods replaced two of the weekends in July when colleges would normally attend grassroots tournaments. But many of the large states — including California — opted out of hosting tournaments, citing costs, the exclusion of non-traditional schools from the events and other regulatory hurdles. Only two states west of the Mississippi — Arizona and Washington — chose to host events. The Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA), which governs the state’s athletics, sanctioned the Arizona Basketball Coaches Association’s Section 7 Team Camp, which was held from June 21-23.

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) will host its event June 28-30. Because only one event was held the weekend of the Arizona event, literally hundreds of college coaches converged on Phoenix for the tournament, which featured nine, 16-team brackets for boys and one 16-team bracket for girls at various schools across the city. High school basketball analysts have widely classified the event as a sweeping success, from the coaching contingent that attended to the style of play, which was more structured than grassroots games, which makes for a different evaluating environment for coaches compared to the up-anddown grassroots format. “I think the entire weekend’s games showcased the importance — for the “recruitable-athletes” and college coaching staffs — of NCAA coaches (D-I) having the ability to closely watch how an athlete plays for his high school team, and interacts with his teammates and coaches,” said Frank Burlison, a longtime high school basketball scout and McDonald’s All American Game voter. “Seeing a kid in a ‘camp’ or ‘club ball’ setting is advantageous for a number of reasons, mostly getting a real-time look at the kid’s size, innate ‘athleticism’ and level of skill,” Burlison continued. “But it’s very rare that you see kid playing within any real ‘structure’ in that setting. He’s playing for a coach who, in many cases, doesn’t offer a real ‘authoritarian-like leader,’ one that TURN TO BRANDON ANGEL ON 10

Stumpwork Boxes can sell for thousands of dollars today Ever notice stumpwork in an antiques auction or shop? It is a type of early embroidery that makes raised designs on a flat textile to make a three-dimensional design. It uses

wire or padding to stuff the figure made of thread. This difficult type of embroidery was popular in England from about 1650 to 1700, but it was called “raised” or “embossed” work until the 1890s. Stumpwork was used on clothing, decorative boxes and pictures. Girls learned to embroider as young as 8 years old, and the training culminated with the production of a box, often with the name and date of the embroiderer. Today, these boxes sell for thousands of dollars. An example made in 17th-century England on silk fabric with flowers, insects and birds, two well-dressed women framed in wreaths, and many other figures and bits of flora and fauna was auctioned in Massachusetts. It was estimated at $2,500 to $5,000, but sold for $9,225. The box had doors and small drawers for storage of writing supplies. Q: My 39-year-old toy lead soldiers are turning grey and then white, and are covered with a white dust when kept in a box for a long time. How can I store

them safely? A: Your toy soldiers have “tin pest.” Years ago, all tin was made with some impurities, like lead or other metals. This tin alloy was more stable than the nearly pure tin used in many electronic devices and in some tin soldiers. Cold weather makes the tin become “white tin” that is brittle, and then it becomes “grey tin.” And when stored in very cold temperatures, it turns into a powder called “powder pest” or “tin pest.” There is no cure if it is very cold. Q: What can you tell me about Briglin Pottery? I bought a pin dish marked “Briglin” at a house sale and would like to know when it was made. What can you tell me about the company? A: Briglin Pottery was a studio pottery founded in London in 1948 by Brigitte Goldschmidt and Eileen Lewenstein. Earthenware mugs, jugs, plates and other items were made. Lewenstein left the pottery in 1959. It closed in 1990. Pieces are very low-priced. A pin dish would cost under $10.

THIS 8-INCH-HIGH stumpwork box is over 400 years old. It has the embroidery on all sides. It sold at Cowan Auctions for $9,225, way over estimate. It is a writing box fitted inside for notes, inkwells and pens. Courtesy photo

Vista High School hires David Jaffe as new principal By Steve Puterski



form that we need to be less than a quorum. I think it’s the only requirement that I read, in addition to it needing to be public and announced” said Velasco. “But then, we could meet as much as we want between now and October, specifically on murals.” Lopez questioned what an ad hoc group could meet about if no policy is in place yet for the murals. But Velasco responded by rattling off a list of things that she believed such a group could still discuss. “Well, for example we have to define the area that we’re talking about that needs to be defined,” said Velasco. “And then second, we need to actually define the spaces of the murals on the walls that we see within this area ... At least start setting down specifics and start moving forward because once we identify certain walls and spaces, then we know which businesses we may have to address to see if they in the future would be interested in financing the mural.” Lopez suggested, instead, waiting until city staff had finished their research report on other cities’ mural programs before forging ahead with an ad hoc committee. “I think the way I see it working is we’ll have the document and send it out to the entire commission for review once we have a pretty solid draft,” said Lopez. “And then at that time, that’s where you’d give me your comments about adding boundaries, locations, things of that nature. And then it could be on the next agenda to discuss in detail.” Lopez later highlighted the city’s efforts to boost volunteer numbers at the Queen Califia’s Magical

work in,” Jaffe said. “I love being a principal. It’s my strongest position to be in. I have a direct impact through leadership, culture of the campus and kids’ journey.” What drew him to Vis-

ta High was it is one of the original schools in San Diego County and the school community. The roots, he said, run deep along with a student population in need of strong leadership. Jaffe has worked as

a teacher and in leadership roles across the K-12 spectrum. He also served as principal at Torrey Pines High School, assistant principal at Diegueño Middle and La Costa Canyon High School, and was

founding principal of Canyon Crest Academy. Additionally, he served as the executive director of curriculum and instruction for the San Dieguito Union High School District. “We are pleased to welcome Mr. Jaffe to VHS and the district,” said President Rosemary Smithfield of the district’s board of trustees. “In partnership with parents, teachers, and staff we were able to find someone who has the knowledge and experience needed to take Vista High School to the next level of excellence.” One area of strength at Vista High has been focused on personalized learning, which puts ownership of education on the students. Jaffe said the old-school method of educating doesn’t work, so engaging students is critical for their success. One program of note is the school’s Career Technical Education pathways, which include the JROTC, Future Farmers of Amer-

ica and culinary arts, to name a few. “These kids are really running a kitchen,” Jaffe said. “They are excited about it. These types of programs are what attracted me to here. Now, let’s build more.” Another longer-term goal, he said, is to evaluate programs at Vista High and the middle schools and vertically align those. In addition, starting with this year’s freshman class, another goal is by the time they graduate, the students have a clear picture of the next step. Whether it’s a four-year college or trade school, Jaffe said, the students must have engaged in “intentional” thought about their future. “When we focus solely on the Xs and Os of education … we’re not developing the whole person,” he added. “Unless they are grounded in an interest or have a passion for something, the attrition rate out of college is tough on them.”

Circle, which have centered around online and social media outreach. She also said that the city has beefed up security efforts around Queen Califia in the aftermath of vandalism incidents. “The cameras are up and functioning and everything is done as far as that goes,” said Lopez. “Public Works will be going in to trim some of the trees so that our visibility is better, but those cameras that are set up there go straight into our police dispatch center.

Called “Pillars of the Community,” it is by Wick Alexander and sits on Escondido Boulevard. “Wick, the artist who made those, has picked them up from the yard and has them in his home now,” said Lopez. “He is assessing the damage. He said it’s going to take quite a while because a lot of the materials he used to create these pieces are from faraway lands and he doesn’t even know if he can get them.” Public Art Commission member Marty Tiedeman said she thinks the damage Your protection needs are unique.

VISTA — As a new school year approaches, a new face has taken over at Vista High School. Longtime educator and a former superintendent David Jaffe is excited to get to work. He started on July 1 after the Vista Unified School District board of trustees approved the hire in April. He replaced interim Principal Chryl Taugher, who is retiring after 17 years in the district. Jaffe was superintendent of the Rancho Santa Fe School District, but said it was a mutual decision to leave the district. Jaffe said he is more comfortable in schools rather than in a district administration capacity. Regardless, he has been prepping for the new position for the last several months, getting to know the staff, campus, programs and environment at Vista High School. “I want to make an impact and difference in the next community I

am bereft. I am stricken. I am about to throw a red-hot pity party. Get me some experts from the FDA, the FFA or the California Tomato Growers Association in here fast. My tomatoes are mushy. I was giddy as I picked a half-dozen of our first tomatoes of the season. There is no one who loves a vine-ripened tomato more that this girl. The disappointment of finding them mushy left me chewing angrily on a lettuce-only salad. This is unacceptable in the extreme. I looked up why tomatoes get mushy, and overwatering is the first suspect. My dilemma then was how to ask my backyard-farmer husband to hold back on the sprinklers. It’s not just the telling that’s a problem. It’s getting him to take my word for it. My hubby is the amateur botanist around here, so any advice I might hand out in that arena is taken with high suspicion. But we are talking about my favorite food item, just below chocolate. I determined it was worth the risk, and broached the subject. Of course, he hadn’t found them to be mushy, but the man is not nearly fussy enough. He pointed out that each of the eight tomato bushes in our backyard is a different variety, so perhaps one may be less perfect than another. He went right out and picked one. I tasted it. It was not the firm, juicy creature I was looking for, but by then I had lost my nerve. We agreed to wait and see. Until last summer, I had lived in tomato poverty for too long. Waiting around for someone with a garden to feel generous is misery. At last, I had access to fresh tomatoes all day long, eaten any way I could dream up — sandwiches, salads, in salsa, on grilled cheese, in omelets, as a side dish, with brie atop a baguette or all by itself atop a baguette. I couldn’t bear to cook them into tomato sauce, but this year that may be in everyone’s Christmas stocking. If less water doesn’t work, I have visions of myself on my knees testing the soil for nitrogen, potassium or calcium, but nobody wants to see that. I could break a nail.

Escondido to consider police drone, immigration enforcement federal dollars By Steve Horn

ESCONDIDO — At its June 5 meeting, the Escondido City Council authorized the purchase of a drone for the Escondido Police Department and voted to accept federal dollars under a controversial immigration program. Both items were listed on the Consent Calendar, meaning they received no public debate by the City Council because none of the members requested that either of the items be pulled. Consent Calendar items receive a vote by governing bodies void of discussion. “To expedite meetings and reserve time for matters that need to be discussed, many local agencies have a section on their agendas labeled as the ‘consent calendar,’” explains the Institute for Local Government, a local government advocacy organization based in Sacramento. “Items on the consent calendar are generally non-controversial items that do not require much, if any, discussion.” And yet, both of the items passed on the Consent Calendar have come under controversy in other municipalities. According to the background documents published as part of the meeting, the Escondido Police Department received a $41,670 grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland

Security to purchase an unmanned aircraft system, known by many as a drone. It will be used by the department’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Unit (UASU), which has existed since 2017. “To date, the UASU has flown 117 missions,” explain the documents. “The aircraft have proven to be reliable and safe with no accidents, injuries or property damage as a result of training or operational flights.” Some of those missions have included overseeing SWAT operations from above, aiding in searches for missing people and suspected criminals fleeing from crime scenes, as well as other civic-minded uses to help in city planning efforts, according to City Council documents from the meeting. The Escondido Police Department says it complies with all Federal Aviation Administration guidelines, as well as Fourth Amendment privacy protections, in the grant documents. The grant money will enable the Escondido Police Department to purchase a DJI Matrice 210, a drone owned by a company based in China. The drone will not have weapons, and will be used for surveillance purposes only, the police department says in the grant documents appended to the City Council agenda.

“The FAA strictly forbids weaponized small unmanned aircraft systems,” it wrote. “The Escondido Police Department UASU does not, and will never, consider utilizing unmanned aircraft for anything other than passive observation and intelligence gathering during mission-specific law enforcement, fire, and disaster operations.” Despite that language, however, the libertarian Cato Institute has stated that it believes California law and the Fourth Amendment provide little protec-

tion against warrantless aerial surveillance. California, for example, does not require law enforcement agencies to have a warrant before doing above-ground surveillance. Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed AB 1327, the Drone Privacy Protection Act, calling for such a warrant. “Many Americans could be forgiven for thinking that this constitutional provision would act as a shield against warrantless aerial surveillance,” wrote Cato in 2017. “Sadly, this is not the case. California law

is similarly of little help.” For the immigration enforcement federal grant received by the Escondido Police Department, the agency received a $10,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security under that agency’s Operation Stonegarden Grant program. Operation Stonegarden began in 2003 in order to streamline relationships between local, state and federal law enforcement units on immigration enforcement efforts. It has come under fire in some

circles for putting local law enforcement agencies in the business of doing immigration enforcement work and sometimes aiding in deporting illegal immigrants. Escondido Police Department, however, has pledged not to do immigration-related work with the grant money. “The Department proposes to use grant funds to pay overtime expenses for multi-disciplinary crime suppression operations related to human trafficking, narcotics trafficking, criminal gang activity, and weapons trafficking,” explain documents provided in the packet for the June 5 meeting. “Grant funds will not be used to enforce immigration laws on behalf of Customs and Border Protection/Border Patrol.” The Escondido Police Department joins the Chula Vista Police Department, San Diego Police Department and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department as units which have drones as part of their arsenals. The purchase of the drone by the Escondido Police Department comes just over two months after the Escondido City Council voted to allow the agency to purchase a robotic police officer, also lacking lethal firepower capacity, with money it had received from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Vista council prepares for CCE study By Steve Puterski

VISTA — More North County cities are beginning to explore Community Choice Energy. During its June 25 meeting, the Vista City Council approved a request for proposal to engage with San Marcos and Escondido for a feasibility study. The cities are the latest to join exploring the alternative to San Diego Gas & Electric. John Conley, Vista’s director of community development, said in April a CCE program, also known as Community Choice Aggregate, would most likely be able to help the city reach its state-mandated climate action goals.

“We came before the council in April to discuss the update to our Climate Action Plan and one of the mitigation measures proposed … was to pursue Community Choice Energy,” Conley said. “We have prepared an RFP and also engaged … San Marcos and Escondido to join in the study.” The RFP will analyze load forecasts, rate analysis and comparisons, supply scenarios, regulatory and risk, management, funding and economic impacts, to name a few. Vista is looking at a CCE to meet its 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target. During the April meeting regarding the city’s CAP, the staff report stated the city would be 42% below greenhouse gas emission levels by 2030. The study will also incorporate a standalone option for Vista and the other cities Councilwoman Corinna Contreras said it is exciting to potentially join with San Marcos and Escondido. Those two cities will be presented with the RFP in the coming weeks. “I’m really excited for San Marcos and Escondido to join, pending their council’s passing the RFP,” Contreras said. “I appreciate all the hard work that has gone into Community Choice Energy.” A similar study conducted from 2017-19 between Carlsbad, Encinitas, Del Mar and Oceanside revealed a cost savings between 1% to 2%. Carlsbad, Encinitas and

Oceanside could also form their own standalone CCEs or opt to join a current CCE program or form a joint-powers agreement with other cities or municipalities. In addition, the city of San Diego, San Diego County, Chula Vista and National City are among other municipalities exploring a CCE. Currently, Solana Beach (Solana Energy Alliance) is the only city in the county with an active CCE, launching last year. Including SEA, there are 19 other CCEs throughout the state. Councilman John Franklin said the city was not considering a CCE one to two years ago, but said investigating methods to protect ratepayers and looking into if the program would be cost effective is worth the time. “There are new imperatives that we have become aware of,” he said. As for the coastal cities, Carlsbad, Encinitas and Del Mar are all moving forward with more in-depth research of a CCE. The Carlsbad City Council approved a subcommittee consisting of Mayor Matt Hall and Councilwoman Cori Schumacher to take a deep dive into the program. Hall said he is wary of a program, citing the economics and potential fallout of starting a new utility. Schumacher, meanwhile, has been a proponent of CCE saying it will help the city and state reach clean energy goals.

commands a kid’s respect by way of the day-to-day interaction that comes with being in the gym with a coach from September to March (in many cases).” The event also allowed for lesser heralded prospects on the grassroots circuit who have bigger roles on the high school level to showcase their talents — and reap the benefits. Cal Poly San Luis Obispo extended a scholarship offer to Kobe Sanders, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard from El Cajon Christian High School, who did not have a scholarship offer entering the weekend. Chibuzo Agbo, who is a reserve on the high-powered Compton Magic travel basketball program, parlayed his weekend into two high-major scholarship offers, from Marquette and Texas Tech. And then there was

Angel, who entered the weekend with five scholarship offers — the highest profile basketball program of the group being the University of San Diego. He left with scholarship offers from Washington State, UC Berkeley — both schools in the Pac-12 Conference — UC Irvine, Pepperdine, UC Santa Barbara, Rice, UC Riverside, Dartmouth, Yale, Hawaii, UC Davis and Northeastern. Angel said he liked the high-school environment more than the up-and-down game traditionally played at grassroots tournaments. “The biggest difference was the level of defense, the rotations were there, there was more team defense, which I enjoyed,” Angel said. “There was really good competition, and I think everyone treated it like a high school game, as opposed to playing in transition like you see in AAU ball.” California players probably won’t have to travel to Arizona next year for the

high school live period. The California Interscholastic Federation’s state executive director Ron Nucetti was seen in Arizona, and many experts see California setting up its own event next year. Burlison said that while he believes it’s a key component to recruiting, coaches get the best gauge of a recruit’s ability seeing him in all settings. “Again, I believe that having the opportunity to see a prospect in every setting — ‘high school,’ ‘club ball’ and ‘camp’ — is the ideal path toward getting as good a ‘real evaluation’ as possible,” Burlison said. “Having the opportunity of seeing a kid in the ‘high school’ setting — especially within the framework of the event put on by the Section 7 folks, especially in providing competitive game platforms in pretty much every round — extensively is truly a ‘win-win’ opportunity for both sides of the recruiting dynamic.”

SANDAG launches webinar series to explain strategies By Steve Horn

REGION — On June 27, the San Diego Association of Governments launched its summer webinar series, which by the end of the season, will explain each of the “5 Big Moves” in its newly launched mass transit plan from a variety of viewpoints. The webinar included discussion about topics ranging from “seamless mobility,” “unconstrained autonomy,” and “smart roads” in laying out what “Complete Corridors” — one of the “5 Big Moves” — could ultimately look like in San Diego County. Presenters included SANDAG’s Coleen Clementson and Alex Estrella, Ben Sumers of McKinsey & Company and Jonathon Hart of CDM Smith. “It is these five moves together that provide the strategy for a bold new vision for the San Diego region’s transportation system,” said Coleen Clementson, special projects director for SANDAG, in introducing the webinar presentations. “We all know we can’t build our way out of congestion, although population growth is continuing and congestion continues to build on our local highway system. However, we can explore ways to improve our roadways, providing compelling transportation alternatives to driving.” Sumers further laid out the concept of “seamless mobility,” or “a future in which the boundaries between private shared and public transit are blurred.” “It’s placed where people have clean, cheap and flexible ways to get from point A to B,” said Sumers. He also pointed out that in a city the size of London, McKinsey research has shown a single minute of

traffic congestion every day for a year can cost the economy $1.4 billion in GDP. But as the webinar series got off the ground, leaders of all of the North County chambers of commerce situated along State Highway 78 published their own letter just a day earlier to SANDAG Executive Director Hasan Ikhrata raising questions about how or if the region will be served by the moves. Echoing some of the concerns raised by conservative representatives in the region, such as San Diego County Supervisors Kristin Gaspar and Jim Desmond, as well as San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones, the chambers teamed up with the North County Economic Development Council in pointing to what they wrote are previous promises thus far unkept by SANDAG. “(W)e are writing to express our strong opposition to any changes to the funding commitments laid

out in the 2004 Transnet renewal ordinance,” wrote the organizations. “We believe such changes would hurt North County’s competitiveness, would break faith with voters who supported the 2004 measure and are extremely premature given SANDAG’s analysis of future Transnet revenues.” The business community leaders pointed to the priority project list created by SANDAG for TransNet, the fund for road and infrastructure projects under the banner of Proposition A — passed by San Diego County voters in 2004 to fund TransNet via a halfcent sales tax through 2048 — as something which should be completed before shifting funds toward “5 Big Moves” projects. “A feature of nearly every successful self-help sales tax measure passed in California, the project list provided voters assurances that if they supported

the measure investments and improvements would be made in their communities,” they wrote. “Voters

view project lists a promise and a commitment that all areas of the county will benefit from the tax.” Two of the projects on that the TransNet list were State Highway 56 and 78, two of the three main eastto-west highways in North County. Public officials representing communities situated along both the 56 and 78 corridors have called for those highways to receive an upgrade and expansion. The business community letter continues that call, honing in on the 78. The business leaders also wrote that, if those items on the list are left unfinished, it will mean voters will be less likely to trust SANDAG if it comes to voters for a new ballot referendum in the future to fund the “5 Big Moves.” “To us, it seems highly unlikely that you and others could convince voters in North County that a future project list would be worth more than the paper print-

ed on since SANDAG will have convincingly demonstrated a proclivity to treat projects lists as only suggestions,” they continued. “Nor will passage be likely if staff continues to not listen to North County elected officials who are articulating the passionate views of their constituents.” The united letter amounts to another hurdle SANDAG will have to clear in selling its new proposal to the public in the months ahead. The organization says it will have a more clear outline of what its plan, still in formation phase, will look like by the fall. The next SANDAG webinar will take place at noon July 10, focusing on the “Transit Leap” move. Speakers will include Katie Chalmers, the service planning supervisor for King County Metro in Washington and Ben Porritt, senior vice president of corporate affairs for Virgin Trains.

I confess: I like Belgian beers after all craft beer in North County Bill Vanderburgh


y personal beer preferences are mostly for British ales. While I do enjoy a good West Coast IPA — hoppy, malty and bitter is often just what the doctor ordered — I prefer a porter or stout almost any time. If I could get reliably good ESBs in San Diego, I’d be a happy camper. And if any local brewery regularly made an English mild that came close to Fuller’s London Pride, I’d be a daily customer. I love the malt, caramel and fruity flavors that are typical in a mild. I especially love that milds are almost always low alcohol beers, in the range of 3% to 4% ABV. That means you can enjoy several while talking with friends. That’s a perfect fit for British pub culture, of course, and something I wish more San Diego breweries would embrace. I’m a bit tired of having one 8% ABV Double IPA and then having to go home for a nap. Everyone’s beer preferences are different, and so my affinity for British

beers is an explanation (or perhaps a cause) of why I have never been an enthusiast for Belgian style beers. That makes me an outlier among many beer aficionados, especially those who helped launch the craft beer movement in America. But since I’m about to leave for a trip to Brussels, I figured I needed to get up to speed. In San Diego County, there is no better place for an education in Belgian-style beers than Lost Abbey. Founded in 2006 by Tomme Arthur and the Marsaglia siblings, Vince and Gina, Lost Abbey’s focus has always been on Belgian-inspired beers. In Belgium, some of the most famous beers are brewed at monasteries, which is where the “abbey” reference originates. Arthur was brewing at Pizza Port when the original Stone Brewing location in San Marcos came free, and he convinced the Marsaglias of Pizza Port to help him open a brewery of his own. It was a good decision: The very next year Lost Abbey won the Great American Beer Festival’s Small Brewery of the Year award. Then in 2008 Lost Abbey won Champion Small Brewery at The World Beer Cup, the most prestigious inter-

Belgian beer is tradiltionally served in this special shaped glass shown above. File photo

national beer competition. The awards kept on coming from major beer festivals, and Lost Abbey acquired an international reputation. It is worth mentioning that Arthur had previously

won the GABF brewer of the year twice before when he worked for Pizza Port Brewing. It wasn’t a great surprise, then, when he won the 2018 Russell Scherer Award for Innovation in

Craft Brewing from the World Beer Cup, a kind of lifetime achievement award held by only 21 other major figures in the beer world before Arthur. Today, there are two Lost Abbey locations, both in North County. The main brewery in San Marcos was joined in 2014 by a tasting room in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Named “The Confessional,” it is a pleasant place to enjoy a beer — it made my list of the best brewery patios in North County, too. On the day of my visit, Devin Patterson-Hall While the ones I seem to be most susceptible to lend clove-like and banana-like flavors to the beer, some Belgian beers are sought for their pepper, apple and even “barnyard” characteristics. In British and German beer traditions, these extra flavors are generally thought to be flaws, but Belgian brewers have mastered the art of getting just enough of them in just the right ways to create beers that fans love for their depth. Belgian brewers are also unafraid of adding flavor in other ways, too: coriander, anise, ginger and other spices, orange peel, whole fruit, even bacterial strains. Many Belgian beers are also aged in oak barrels

to allow even more flavors to develop. The great news for me is that after visiting Lost Abbey, I feel more educated and I’m much less nervous about jumping into Belgium’s beer culture. I have to admit, though, that after my flight of Belgian beers, I did order a pint of a West Coast IPA. Old habits die hard, I guess. was behind the bar. I told him I wanted an education in Belgian brewing and he set me up a flight of four beers. It was designed to take me from lighter, less intense beers to stronger, darker and more intense beers. He talked me through each one, letting me know what is typical of the style each was based on, teaching me about Belgian yeast and brewing practices, and explaining how Lost Abbey has innovated on those things. For example, where Belgian brewers commonly use candy sugar to add flavor and color to their bigger beers, Lost Abbey uses raisins for their complementary flavors as well as sweetness and color. The yeast in Belgian beer does a lot of the work, not just converting sugars to alcohol but also producing chemicals called phenols and esters that add complexity to the flavor of the beer.

There is also a good chance you will find owner Debbie Zinniger chatting those folks up. Debbie was working as a waitress in the 1980’s when the restaurant abruptly closed. She realized the importance of the restaurant to the community way back then and took a leap of faith to buy it and has not looked back. Many of the servers at Encinitas CafÊ have been PM there a while as well and if

they have not, they still exude that friendly diner vibe that makes everyone feel like a local. The Encinitas CafĂŠ is also a place I have no problem going to solo. In fact, I somewhat enjoy bellying up to the counter on a diner stool and enjoying a good read over a patty melt, bowl of soup, a soda and a chocolate malt for dessert. Other favorites of mine include just about any burger, the soup and salad combo with tuna fish on white bread, the French dip, one of the many fine salads, or just about anything on their break-

And of course they have some fun desserts including malts and shakes made with the retro immersion blenders, root beer floats, chocolate sundae, tapioca pudding, fresh baked pies, chocolate cake, and fresh baked pecan cookies. The Encinitas CafĂŠ is a place to go to forget about your diet du jour and indulge a bit. But if you happen to be in the company of someone who does not indulge, first

sell them on the history of this place, then assure them they do have some healthy options on the menu. This is by no means a knock against the trendy and in many cases delicious new eateries that are taking over Encinitas, it’s just an appeal to please support places like the Encinitas CafÊ that are part of the original essence of the our area. They deserve your attention and not just on weekends. Find them at 531 South Coast Highway 101, Encinitas, or www.encinitascafe. com

Best new restaurants so far in 2019: Del Frisco’s, Cesarina, Mangia e Bevi and West End Bar & Kitchen. Important yet-to-open restaurants include: Brian Malarkey’s Herb & Sea in Encinitas, star chef Michael Mina’s International Smoke in Del Mar, Italian Restaurant Blade in Oceanside and Sere, the new anchor restaurant for the Hotel Del Coronado.

Nothing says summer like the smoky flavor of foods cooked out on the grill, the bright, warm sunshine, and the nearby buzzzzz of bees. It’s time for fun in the sun as we all continue to take to the great outdoors to enjoy our Southern CA lifestyle. Summer also requires a few safety reminders to keep fun at the top of our list. Outdoor activities should always include sunscreen and plenty of water, for young and old alike. Whether at the pool or beach, a cautious eye for safety is a must. Food eaten outdoors should be monitored for temperature - both hot and cold - to prevent food poisoning. Outdoor activities can sometimes include bee stings, snake bites, scrapes, and various “owies,” so be prepared to provide first aide to those in need. Please stay safe while having a “ton of fun” in the good ole summertime!

TURLEY UEBERROTH VINEYARD ZINFANDEL, PASO ROBLES, 2016, $50. Larry Turley loves to make wine from Old Vine Zinfandel. In fact, he makes 47 wines, mostly Zin and some Petite Sirah, from 50 different vineyards, hand-picked for their excellence. The oldest is the 131-yearold Ueberroth Vineyard, high on a hill closest to the ocean in Paso Robles, with very steep limestone slopes. The high pH of the soil makes for a high acid wine, elevating the ripe fruit flavors. All of Turley’s vineyards are certified organic and use all natural yeasts in the fermentations. Learn more at

Farmer is fed up with abandoned pets

Paws Corner by Sam Mazzotta

DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I'm hoping you'll publish this letter and make people aware that farms are not dumping grounds for unwanted pets. This year alone, I've found

a litter of kittens (no mama) outside my front gate, two dogs tied up to my cattle gate, and a dead hamster in a cage next to my trash cans. When an animal is abandoned near our farm, we take it to the local shelter. Most likely that dog or cat is put down after a few days. Dogs that I can't catch, that begin to threaten our livestock, we have to hunt down and kill. A farm is not the place

to leave your pet. We do not have a room in the house staked out for hamster cages. We did not prepare a sunny corner of the barn for your kittens to live in (we have our own barn cats, thank you). Our dog is a highly trained working dog who helps us tend livestock; we do not have time to heal your dog of the trauma you caused by abandoning it, much less teach it how to be a farm dog. Please don't publish my

location, as it might just encourage more idiots to dump their pets at my front gate. -- Frustrated and Sad Farmer DEAR FRUSTRATED: I hear you, and I'm sorry it's happening to you. Folks, dumping your pet is cruel, and in some states, it's a crime. Most abandoned pets suffer and die. If you cannot take care of a pet, contact the local shelter for help. Your pet is your responsibility.

Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase in early 2020. Those artifacts include ancient dinosaur eggs, bones, fossils, and other rock formations. Roynon said he felt sadness about having to leave it all behind. “It’s a very emotional thing to give up 75 years of this, but what must happen, must happen,” said Roynon. “It would’ve been nice to have a benefactor come in and give us a hand. We needed to hire another person, but we weren’t making enough money to hire another person. So, we need to close her down.” Robert Paolella, a public relations and media strategist, said he, Escondido philanthropist and business owner George Weir and Escondido City Councilman Mike Morasco have kept an open line of communication with Roynon to keep at least some of the artifacts in Escondido. “The Center for the Arts has been suggested by countless people since it’s such a fitting location,” said Paolella. “Wherever it may sit, I am working to try and get Keith on board with someone who will house it publicly. That’s the best solution for everyone in Escondido to be able to continue to enjoy it.” Next up on the docket for Roynon will be a chance to fully retire and spend more time with his wife.

“There are times to spend together and now we’re going to spend more time together,” said Roynon, noting that his wife is a retired teacher and both had spent significant time away from home as part of their professional endeavors. Community members

also conveyed a sense of sorrow, as well as pride, about the museum shuttering. One of them is Blanca Jarquin. “My son is super sad that it was his last time there and he didn’t want to leave the museum,” she wrote in the Facebook

Group Escondido Friends. “However, we were able to take tons of pics for my son to keep in his dinosaur photo album. Thank you Mr. Roynon for this amazing place that made a lot of kids like mine happy and taught them about the amazing dinosaur era.” Roynon concurred, saying the “most important thing” was the lives of children the museum touched. “The 6,000 children a year that we did run through the museum here, those children are all growing up with great remembrances of our museum,” said Roynon.

But seriously, Lamb, you might want to back up your ideas with some solid data, and then watch the yeas pile on.

Tend to that pesky health problem now so you’ll be in top shape to tackle the new projects coming up. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Planning a family event can be stressful unless you make it clear from the start that you’re in charge. You might accept suggestions, but it will be your decisions that count. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You still have a way to go to bring that professional matter to a satisfactory conclusion. Meanwhile, an important personal situation could require more of your attention by week’s end. LEO (July 23 to August 22) There’s something about you Fine Felines that makes people want to tell you secrets. But once again, be wary of who is doing the telling. You might not want to be that person’s confidante. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Creating a fuss about a family matter might get everyone’s attention. But it might be better to talk one-on-one with family members in order to spare a loved one unnecessary embarrassment.

Your personal life takes an unexpected (but very welcome) new turn.

News of the Weird Arby's has turned the trend toward plant-based "burgers" on its head with the new Marrot: a carrot made out of meat. Vice reported that Arby's has definitively rejected the plantbased meats movement. "(W)hat Americans really want ... is great, tasty meat," said Jim Taylor, Arby's chief marketing officer. "So we said if others can make meat out of vegetables, why can't we make vegetables out of meat?" The Marrot is made by rolling raw ground turkey breast into a carrot shape, cooking it sous-vide for an hour, covering it with a special "carrot marinade," and then oven-roasting it for another hour. Bon appetit! [Vice, 6/27/2019] THE LITIGIOUS SOCIETY Tommy Martin, 58, of Mount Holly, North Carolina, hopes to see Hardee's in federal court after a "humiliating" incident at a Belmont store in which Martin was given just two Hash Rounds on his breakfast plate, rather than the half-dozen or so depicted on the company's website. Martin, who is black, told The News and Observer that he felt like he was in a scene from the segregated 1960s when he asked for more. "The manager came back and said that what you get. Got home with tear in

mine eye," Martin said in the handwritten lawsuit filed June 24 in U.S. District Court in Charlotte. The cashier was prepared to give him more Hash Rounds, Martin said, but the manager, who is white, stepped in and gave him a refund instead. [Raleigh News and Observer, 6/26/2019] Cultural Diversity A cafe in Bangkok, Thailand, is encouraging customers to "experience the death awareness" and reflect more on their lives by inviting patrons to get into a coffin and spend some time with the lid closed after finishing their coffee. Death Awareness Cafe owner Veeranut Rojanaprapa told United Press International that the practice encourages people not to be driven by greed. "When the lid of the coffin closes ... they will realize that eventually they cannot take anything with them." (Hope there are air holes.) [United Press International, 6/26/2019] NIGHTMARE NEIGHBOR After her husband suffered a stroke in 2012, Junghee Kim Spicer, owner of the Yakima (Washington) Arts Academy, increased the number of piano students she taught in her home, angering neighbor Paul Patnode, who complained and forced Spicer to get a permit that limited the hours and number of students she could teach each day, reported the Yakima Herald. Spicer complied, according to court documents, but Patnode, unsatisfied,

sued her and lost that case in 2014. Undeterred, Patnode changed tactics: From November 2015 through March 2016, he parked his diesel pickup truck next to Spicer's home, remotely revving the engine and setting off the truck's alarm each time a student walked by. Spicer and her husband won a $40,000 settlement in their resulting lawsuit, and on June 25, the Division III Court of Appeals upheld that ruling. Chief Judge Robert Lawrence-Berry wrote: "(Mr. Patnode) intended to achieve through harassment what he had been unable to achieve through legal means."

So on the morning of June 11, the 4-year-old climbed into the front seat of his great-grandfather's Hyundai Santa Fe and drove at low speeds to a nearby gas station, where police met him. To accomplish this, according to Fox9, he had to reverse out of the driveway and navigate winding residential streets before getting onto a busy fourlane avenue in rush-hour traffic. Along the way, he dinged a few mailboxes and a tree, but he arrived safe and sound. Blaine police Capt. Mark Boerboom told Fox News, "I've never seen a driver this young before operating a vehicle."
