Negligence lawsuit filed by assisted living center resident By Steve Horn
ESCONDIDO — What began as a hospitalization for pneumonia and other ailments has escalated into an elder abuse and negligence civil lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of California’s San Diego County division. Brought against the ownership group of the Oakmont of Escondido Hills
assisted living center on June 22, the lawsuit filed by 87-year-old resident Naomi Davis alleges that Oakmont did not provide an adequate response to Davis’ deteriorating health conditions. Davis’ legal team alleges that the facility “failed to exercise the degree of care that reasonable persons in like positions would have exercised.”
The complaint centers on an alleged violation of Section 15610.57 of California’s Welfare and Institutions Code. That state law deals with the legal issue of neglect in elderly care or dependent adult scenarios. Legally, it is defined as a “failure of any person having the care or custody of an An 87-year-old resident of Oakmont of Escondido Hills alTURN TO LAWSUIT ON 18

SAN MARCOS — As expected, the County Planning Commission has endorsed a controversial 2,135-unit development near Merriam Mountain, amid outcry from residents and businesses that say the project will destroy one of North County’s few remaining rural enclaves. The commission voted 6-1 on June 28 to recommend the County Board of Supervisors approve the Newland Sierra project, a master-planned community consisting of 2,135 units, 81,000 square feet of commercial space, open space, parks and trails. Supporters of the project argued that it will provide “attainable” housing to moderate-income families and working-class households and help address the well-publicized county’s housing shortfall. Opponents, however, argued that the project did not address truly affordable housing — none of the homes cost less than $300,000 — and that the impacts to traffic, noise, fire safety and other factors render any benefits the project might have moot.

Coming of age: Storytelling no longer just for children By Adam Bradley

And perhaps they never were. This is according to one of San Diego County’s leading storytellers, Marilyn McPhie, who has made a full-time career as a storyteller since 1985, which evolved while she was raising her family. “When people think of storytelling they think of a little old lady in a rocking chair reading to little kids at the library seated in a circle with a book,” said the 70-year-old Penasquitos resident. “While I can fit that stereotype,

Additionally, she has told stories for assemblies, classes and festivals, has lectured for several colleges and universities. She has also performed for schools, libraries, museums, civic and church groups, as well as private gatherings. She has directed a troupe of student storytellers and has writ-

Election filing period begins July 16 By Aaron Burgin
REGION — Aspiring politicians looking to run for local city councils, school and special district boards on Nov. 6 can officially file nomination paperwork on July 16, the start of the monthlong nomination period. Prospective candidates must obtain nomination
paperwork from their respective agency clerks and return the paperwork before Aug. 10, when the filing period closes. If an incumbent does not file paperwork, the filing period will be extended until Aug. 15. This year, with the advent of by-district elections in a number of jurisdic-
tions, residents must live in the district for which they are running in addition to being a registered voter and resident of the community and jurisdiction. Carlsbad, Encinitas, Oceanside, San Marcos and Vista will be holding district elections for the first time, joining Escondido, which switched in 2013.
ESCONDIDO — Bouncing and flying through the air, 75 trampolinists took flight June 29 through July 1 at the Escondido Sports Center. The GTGames, founded by Los Angeles-based SkyBound, is quickly drawing the masses. Athletes take to one of the oldest home recreations, the trampoline. Drawing on previous experiences in gymnastics or diving, or being selftaught, the competitors bounce, fly and spin their way in a rising new sport. Two years ago, SkyBound partnered with Canadian trampolinist Greg Roe of GRT Sport Events to establish themselves as the leaders in the freestyle and garden trampoline community movement. One year later, the partners launched the first-ever GTGames (Garden and Trampoline Games). “It’s high-end backyard trampolines that free-style,” said Ricky Lai, marketing manager for SkyBound. “The trampolinists are more concerned with creativity, variable techniques and doing different things that weren’t able to be done because the sport just wasn’t there.” Now, the GTGames will head to Denmark for the first European GTGames from Aug. 3 to Aug.
5. The U.S. and European events will feature the same parameters as competitors take part in three disciplines. They competed in a Game of Tramp (like Horse in basketball), the two-trick spectacular and 30-second freestyle, which are the biggest and best tricks. The athletes are selected by the GTGames committee through video submissions showcasing their abilities. “We select through thousands of submissions,” Lai said. Last year, the inaugural event had 50 competitors, but since growth was expected, the committee increased the qualifiers to 75. “It was a great second year,” Lai said. “We want to continue build and grow the event. We will continue to work with the Escondido
Sports Center. Overall, we are very happy with how this year took place.” Growth, though, will come over years with sights on larger venues for trampoline events. Still, the growth has been increasing over the years thanks in part to an already established community of athletes and social media. The athletes, Lai said, challenge and learn from each other forcing the difficulty and originality of tricks to grow. Social media, meanwhile, provides a stimulating visual platform for the tricks to be shared around the world. “It’s almost like the perfect storm,” Lai said. “Ten years ago, you really couldn’t showcase, or nobody would be able to see, what you were doing in your own backyard. With this younger generation, you’re seeing this perfect intersection.”

A silly con for November By Dana Schierenbeck
Remember the energy crunch? Say no to regional electric grid
ay back in 1990, when Californians overwhelmingly voted to impose term limits on state officials, critics warned about the loss of “institutional memory” the move would inevitably bring with it. This summer, we may see just how much damage that can do. For there’s virtually no one now serving in the California Legislature who was there in 1998, when previous legislators and then-Gov. Pete Wilson opted to deregulate the state’s electric grid. Their action allowed any electric user to buy power from any seller. It encouraged California’s three big privately owned power companies to sell off older power plants whose construction expenses had long ago been completely written off. It allowed outof-state players to manipulate California’s electricity market and led to the energy crunch of 2000 and 2001, complete with rolling blackouts, frequent brownouts and eventual criminal convictions for executives of companies like Texas-based Enron. People now holding office in Sacramento should remember all this, if only because everyone there was at least 6 years old during the power crisis. But this summer, many are acting as if they don’t remember a thing. As if they have no memory of the last time California allowed people in other states to tinker with its electricity supplies. That’s about the only plausible explanation for the so-far steady progress through the Legislature of a bill that would make this state part of a Western electricity grid with a governing board whose makeup is yet to be determined. Essentially, it could
california focus thomas d. elias place California’s power fate in the hands of people from Utah and Idaho who know little about this state’s needs and wants. It could make a joke of California’s own laws governing renewable energy, which dictate that a massive share of the state’s energy must come from solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal or other sources that can never be completely exhausted, as oil, coal and natural gas can. California has avoided problems for the last 15 years largely because it has its own agency overseeing the grid, the so-called Independent System Operator, run by appointees of the governor, who would suffer political consequences for any blunders they might commit. Not so the proposed new Western regional board, which would be appointed largely by electric industry stakeholders. That’s like letting Enron or its modern equivalent run the grid. The fox would run the henhouse. But the plan, known in the Legislature as AB 813, has strong backing from Gov. Jerry Brown, whose term expires Dec. 31, meaning he can never suffer politically for whatever it might produce. It passed the state Senate’s Energy, Utilities and Communications Committee on a 6-1 vote earlier this summer, with only Republican Andy Vidak of Hanford dissenting. One who voted for the bill was Democratic Sen. Robert Hertzberg, a rare bird in Sacramento who
was around to see the ill effects of deregulation and therefore should have known better. Hertzberg, speaker of the state Assembly during the energy crunch, told a reporter, “I generally like the notion of regionalization,” noting that it gives California utilities a chance to sell excess solar energy produced during the daytime into other states. That, some suggest, could lead to lower power rates for Californians. But Hertzberg said the current bill doesn’t include enough assurances of protection for this state’s clean energy policies, already threatened by the pro-coal, pro-pollution policies of the Trump administration, to whom the new grid’s officers would ultimately be responsible. Hertzberg said he only voted for the bill in committee to give its author, Democrat Chris Holden of Pasadena, a chance to fix it. But there is no sign Holden wants to do that. And there is also no answer in sight to the ultimate question every legislative bill should answer before becoming law: Do we need this? In the case of a regional electric grid, we clearly don’t. We don’t need to get mixed up with states like Utah that draw much of their electricity from coal. We have excess power now, and that’s just fine, so why risk shortages if folks from other states choose to send California-generated electricity elsewhere? The answer is there is no reason to do this, and it likely would not have gotten this far if legislators had any sort of institutional memory. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This November, a statewide ballot measure to split California into three separate states is not only a distraction from more important challenges facing our state, it is also quite flawed. First, given the historical spin of individuals spearheading this kind of endeavor, Mr. Tim Draper will most likely argue that this change will “save taxpayers money,” “provide better services” and “give residents more local input.” These are fallacious assertions. The “new” states would need to create their own governments, elect officials, manage services, etc. So there would be three separate bureaucracies created. There is no savings there, probably just more costs. Government services will also suffer in the short run as new bureaucracies get up and running. In the long run, services will suffer because higher bureaucratic costs will siphon off moneys that could have been used for actually providing the services. As for giving “local” communities more input, that is also unlikely. Of course, those financially well off “locals” and majority political parties would perhaps gain a bit more sway in their respective political spheres. What else is new, right? How does any of this help the average taxpayer? Hint: it does not. Secondly, the proponent of this ballot initiative, Mr. Draper, is a very wealthy Silicon Valley hedge fund manager. It is not a surprise that Mr. Draper is advocating this. After all, that is exactly what hedge fund managers do: acquire a company, sell off the divisions and walk away with a profit while leaving others to pick up the pieces and pay the tab. This gentleman is a billionaire and he can live anywhere he wants. So, when the whole deal burns to the ground, Mr. Draper will simply relocate elsewhere. Eventually, who will be left holding on to the new states’ debts and dealing with new expensive bureaucracies that are trying to get up and running, all the while continuing to provide services? Hint: the average Joe or Josephine California resident who cannot “just move.” Third, another faulty argument in favor of this initiative is that dividing California into three states will increase the state’s presence and power in the Senate. While on it’s face this point appears
true, in practice it will be quite a different reality. Witness the situation regarding our current representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives. California has the largest population in the United States of America. Therefore, California has the the largest number of representatives (53). That constitutes over 10% of the total number of votes for any one bill. One would presume that this would be a formidable voting bloc. Unfortunately, California’s representatives have not banded together as a united caucus to support laws that will benefit their constituents, the residents of California. In other words, there are representatives that vote for bills along party lines, even though those bills are NOT in the best interests of Californians. There are numerous recent examples of this. The point here is that even though dividing California into three new “states” would increase the number of senators from 2 to 6, the probability is that a similar scenario as described above would arise in the Senate. Some of the new senators would favor party loyalty over the best interests of Californians and vote for bills that would be not be in Californians’ best interests. That would dissolve any advantage adding more senators would have given. Is that dubious “benefit” worth all the excessive costs outlined above? Hint: NO. Lastly, even IF (and that is a big “IF”) the initiative passes and the new “states” manage to get up and running, the proposed territorial divisions are nowhere near equitable among the new “states” with regard to natural resources and wealth. A few examples of what Northern California would retain are: most of the state’s water, a big part of the central valley, our existing capital of Sacramento, a significant percentage of the state’s financial industry, and the majority of forests. Interestingly enough, Silicon Valley is located in what would become Northern California. That sure is a great deal for Mr. Draper. So, how good a deal is this for all of California? Hint: It is not a good deal for anyone in California, except possibly Mr. Draper. My suggestion to ALL Californians is to vote “NO” in November on this folly. Vote “NO” on Mr. Draper’s silly, con initiative. Dana Schierenbeck is a resident of Encinitas

San Diego band playing for chance to perform at KAABOO By Kelli Kyle
REGION — Three friends playing traditional rock n’ roll — that’s how singer and guitarist Jacob Schrimpf describes Sweet Tooth, the band that he and his buddies from high school started in early 2017. “We were all three together one day ... we played a couple tracks I had made,” Schrimpf said. “They sounded good, and that was kind of the genesis of it.” With Schrimpf is Kevin Bingham on the drums and Trevor Barber as vocals and bass. Sometimes described as surf rock — implying a sort of “punky” laid-back sound — the three-man San Diego band feels like a straight-up rock experience that music blog Divide & Conquer describes as fluid, versatile and original. As current residents of Del Mar, Encinitas and La Jolla, the band members’ San Diego roots and lifestyle largely influenced their sound. “I like to think the music is definitely an extension of us three,” Schrimpf said. “We were all raised here
and that kind of formulated our styles.” On Friday, July 13, Sweet Tooth will join three other regional music acts on stage at Quartyard in downtown San Diego for the second to last piece of the KAABOO Discovery Tour. The crowd votes at each performance for their favorite act, who then gets a spot on stage at the larger festival, KAABOO Del Mar, in September. “The purpose was to give us the opportunity to engage with local talent and provide them the opportunity to compete for the chance to perform at Kaboo,” Jason Felts, KAABOO’s chief brand officer, explained. Felts said Sweet Tooth brings something new to the table — he’s excited for their performance on Friday. “I really like them,” Felts said. “They have a pretty unique sound, and they’ve got great stage presence.” According to Schrimpf, Friday’s audience is in for a no frills, high-energy set. “I like to think we have a strong, pretty powerful vibe when we’re all three fir-

ber of units than the county’s general plan — adopted in 2011 — calls for in the area. “The density we are talking about is ridiculous,” said Tom Kumura, who lives in the Twin Oaks Valley Community and serves on the community sponsor group’s board. Some of the more high-profile opponents of the project are the owners of the Golden Door spa, a world-renowned facility along Deer Springs Road. The owners said that the bucolic nature of the spa’s surroundings are part of the appeal, and the project would destroy that. “It will destroy rural Twin Oaks Valley as well as
our business,” said Kathy Van Ness, Golden Door’s chief operating officer. Beck, who dominated the commissioner’s question and answer session before the vote, pointed out that despite the developer’s pledge to widen Deer Springs Road and contribute $56 million for various road and traffic improvements, large stretches of Interstate 15 and nearby streets would be operating at failing levels of service due to the traffic. “So we’re planning for gridlock?” Beck rhetorically asked staff. Beck also expressed disappointment that the county did not enforce the general plan’s affordable housing requirements on the devel-
oper. County staff said that it couldn’t impose the regulations because the county does not have an inclusionary housing ordinance that most jurisdictions have that require a certain percentage of a development to be set aside for affordable housing. A developer could argue that if the county required affordable housing without an ordinance it would be a capricious requirement that could make the project financially unfeasible, county staff said. Planning Commissioner Bryan Woods said that while there is no housing below $300,000, the project does provide about 700 units below $500,000, of which there is a dearth countywide.

for nearly an hour regarding the project and its impact on traffic, schools, affordable housing and other issues, cast the lone dissenting vote. The Board of Supervisors denied Newland Sierra’s predecessor, the controversial Merriam Mountains project, in March 2010. Developers of that project, which consisted of 2,700 residential units, first applied at the county July 9, 2003, nearly 15 years ago. Developers resubmitted the revamped project in 2015, and the county released the draft environmental impact report in mid-2017. The report, which comes in at nearly 1,800 pages, states that the project will have significant and unavoidable impacts to traffic, air quality, mineral resources, noise and increase in population. Some of the traffic impacts — including increased congestion along several major roadways, intersections and Interstate 15 — can be mitigated, according to the report. However, several of the streets and intersections impacted are outside of the county’s jurisdiction and could only be fixed by Escondido, San Marcos or Caltrans. Newland Communities, the developer, issued a statement shortly after the release of the report in 2017 touting the developer’s commitment to environmental stewardship. The statement highlighted several features of the project that help make it the county’s first net-zero emissions community, including putting solar panels atop every home, a charging station for electrical vehicles in every garage, a community-sponsored shuttle with service throughout the community and the Escondido Transit Center and an

grown its following pretty organically through Instagram and word-of-mouth. Right now, Schrimpf said they’re focused less on marketing and more on producing quality content, so they’ll be ready for the exposure from KAABOO should they get it. “When the opportunity affords itself, marketing isn’t going to do much, but having the chops will,” Schrimpf said. When asked how it would feel to perform on the Del Mar stage he’s grown up at, Schrimpf opted to save the answer for if they get the opportunity. Regardless of what happens, he said Sweet Tooth plans to reach as many people as they can with their music. “It’s kind of always been our goal since the start,” Schrimpf said. “We want to make good quality music and see how far we can take it.” Sweet Tooth performs as part of the KAABOO Discovery Tour at Quartyard in San Diego on Friday, July 13 at 7 p.m., with winners announced at 10 p.m.

According to the environmental report’s summary page, the project is the first large-scale planned community in San Diego County to achieve a 100 percent reduction in the project’s construction and operational greenhouse gas emissions. “Environmental stewardship is one of our company’s highest priorities,” said Rita Brandin, senior vice president and development director at Newland. “Now we’re taking this commitment to new heights by creating a community that will have a net-zero emissions footprint. We believe that Sierra will become the new green standard for sustainable communities in San Diego County.” A substantial group of residents have opposed the project since its inception, and the community groups in the impacted area have all unanimously voted in favor of the project’s denial, including the Twin Oaks Valley and Hidden Meadows community sponsor groups and the Bonsall Community Planning Group.

Long-awaited San Elijo Town Center finally taking shape By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS — “It’s opening Friday?” Drempko said when a reporter told her of the imminent opening. “That’s great.” Starbucks will be the first store to open its doors in the long-awaited San Elijo Town Center, the 5-acre retail and residential hub in the center of the San Elijo Hills. Residents have waited for 15 years after multiple false starts and a recession that snuffed out dreams of the completion of the community’s core, turning it into a fenced-off field full of weeds. Today, however, workers are busy putting the finishing touches on the 34,000-square-foot retail center that anchors the first part of the second phase of the town center: 11 businesses, in-
cluding the aforementioned Starbucks, a CycleBar indoor cycling franchise, Lourdes Mexican Food and a dental chain. “It’s really gratifying to finally get to this point, but more importantly, it’s a big win for the community,” said Duncan Budinger, the director of retail development for Ambient Communities, the project developer. “They have waited a long time for this.” San Elijo Hills, the suburban enclave at the southern tip of San Marcos, sprouted in 2000 with the first homes going for sale. It’s now home to nearly 9,000 people and more than 3,000 homes and condominium units. The Town Center, which is the unofficial “downtown” of the San Marcos community, current-
ly includes a grocery store, gas station and bank, as well as retail units on the ground floor of mixed-used developments. The last portion of the center that was finished was the gas station in 2008, but efforts to complete the Town Center stalled as a result of the recession, which ground much of the county’s retail development to a halt. Budinger said that while residents enjoyed the grocery store and shops that lined either side of San Elijo Road, the vacant five acres rendered the community incomplete. “It was missing a heart,” Budinger said. “It was missing a place to unite the community and give them ‘their place.’” As the economy rebounded, the community’s developer, San
M arketplace News
Elijo Hills Development Co., began to show signs of resuming the project. First, in late 2015, a message on the company’s website said that it was working with a proven retail developer and moving forward with the second phase. Then, nearly two years later, the city and developer confirmed that they would be breaking ground in late 2017, to the surprise of skeptical residents. “I know there has been skepticism. I hope to cure that in a few weeks as we start creating dust and showing people what a great project this is,” Budinger said in 2017 in the San Diego Union-Tribune. “We fully believe we are going to meet or exceed the expectations of the community.”
The decade-long gap between the completion of the earlier phase and the current phase gave the developer a chance to retool the design to make it more walkable and more of a destination. “We didn’t want it to be another strip mall,” Budinger said. “The updated design put an emphasis on open space and common areas, and every building is unique. I think the community is going to embrace it.” Following Starbucks, the dental office will open on July 20, CycleBar will open July 26 and Lourdes, Everbowl and a third restaurant will follow in August. The project also includes 12 townhomes on an adjacent pad being developed by Hallmark Communities.

Hair restoration and summertime savings OCEANSIDE — Summer inevitably brings sunshine and beach days. You may have been stepping up your workouts, wanting to look and feel your best. But as good as exercise is to help you feel and look great, if you’ve experienced hair loss it might have you feeling less than confident about the season. The specialists at MyHairTransplantMD can not only help you restore your hair, but your confidence too. Using cutting-edge hair transplant technology, MyHairTransplantMD is able to help clients achieve optimal natural-looking results. Think of it like having a personal trainer, but for your hair loss. Similar to meeting a personal trainer, you’ll have a free consultation and have your measurements taken and then your specialist will help you devise a plan. Next you’ll choose the method you’d prefer to achieve your
desired results. The biggest difference between getting started on a workout plan versus a hair restoration plan is that with the latter, you will walk out the door knowing exactly what you are going to get, how much it will cost, and how long it will take. Not to mention these results last! “Our first step is to accurately measure the thin or bald area using our proprietary hair restoration template to determine how many square centimeters need restoration,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD, said. “We measure precisely so that our calculations are correct,” Wagner said. “We draw directly on the patient’s head, and then transfer the surface area to be restored onto our 3D Hair Mapping Template. We then calculate the size of the restoration area in square centimeters.” The template helps determine the area of
baldness and the number of grafts needed. “This is based on what the client wants, and how much donor hair they have,” Wagner said. “More grafts are required to produce fullness, and fewer are needed to deliver coverage,” Wagner said. “Our patients walk out of here knowing exactly what they are going to need to achieve their desired results, and precisely what is possible.” The next step is to choose which method of hair restoration is best to fit the
client’s needs. Traditionally Follicular Unit Grafting (FUG) was the only choice for hair restoration. A relatively new technique, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), is not as widely available as the traditional FUG method, and Wagner is proud to be able to offer it to North County clients. “Both FUE and FUG produce amazing natural-looking results,” Wagner said. “Both techniques place hairs the way they would naturally grow. The big difference is the way in which the
hairs are extracted. While FUG excises long, thin strips of scalp, FUE makes a tiny circular punch around each follicular unit. While FUG involves a thin scar which is difficult to detect, even on close inspection, FUE leaves only tiny circular marks that are typically also undetectable. There are no sutures or bandages with FUE.” With the FUE procedure you can return to work the next day, while FUG recovery takes a bit longer. “No matter which way you and your specialist decide to
go, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the summer with both your confidence, and your hair, restored,” Wagner said. M y H a i rTr a n s p l a n tMD is located at 2103 S. El Camino Real, Suite 201, Oceanside, CA 92054.

STORYTELLER CONTINUED FROM 1
movement has changed in the last 10 years.” Storytelling: A real ‘thing’
McPhie said that storytelling has become a real “thing” and is extremely popular among all people. “This is not to say that it is less important, or useful and interesting for kids, but rather it’s just expanding to people of all ages who can benefit from storytelling.” Of course, when she tells people what she does for a living, they are shocked, she said. “When I tell people that I am a storyteller, they often say something like, ‘Oh, how cute! You read books to small children.’ I must explain that, although I do that, my storytelling consists of stories told orally rather than read and that I tell stories to all ages and in many different situations. “More and more, as people become familiar with programs like MOTH (a series of live storytelling events; some of the stories are aired on their radio shows and podcasts), ‘This American Life’ or TEDtalks, or storytelling in other areas of their experience, these people recognize that it’s more than they first assumed,” she said. But don’t get confused, her own storytelling is not a traditional 40-hour-a week job. “However, I do consider storytelling my full-time profession,” she said. “In addition to the actual performing, there is research, rehearsal, preparing proposals, writing grants, keeping records, etc.” Storytelling in North County
McPhie tells stories all around San Diego and beyond. Last month, for example, she did a solo show at the International School of Storytelling in England and North County is a popular place for her services. “North County, and Encinitas, has become a focal point for storytelling in San Diego,” she said. “The Storytellers of San Diego and the Encinitas Library have presented an all-day free storytelling festival for the past eight years. It involves more than two dozen storytellers, including professionals, community members, school children and more.” If you’re interested, next year, the festival will be on Saturday, March 16. “In addition, we are collaborating with the library on a Storytelling Institute, with a series of classes available to anyone who would
like instruction in the art of storytelling,” McPhie said. “We plan to start the institute this fall. Also, at the Encinitas Library, we are preparing to launch a storytelling collection of books.” Stay tuned for more information on that. Additionally, North County businesses, government, civic organizations, and individuals have been important donors and supporters of storytelling, she said. The Storytellers of San Diego has regular programs in many areas of the county, too. “We currently have a monthly storytelling show in South Park, at Eclipse Chocolate Bar and Bistro, and have recently begun talking with a venue in Oceanside for something similar,” she said. “I tell stories every year at the San Diego Highland Games in Vista and the Sam Hinton Folk Festival in Poway. I tell stories to preschoolers every week at my library in Penasquitos.” Storytelling apparently has come of age and then some. Who is Marilyn McPhie?
McPhie said. “Corporations hire storytellers for training and team-building. Hospitals and other health-related fields hire storytellers in healing and wellness situations. And then, of course, there’s the pure entertainment of good storytelling.”

I tell stories from all over the world, but I am particularly drawn to stories from the countries of my ancestors — England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, and though I have no ancestral link, Russia. “I like stories with strong female characters, and I favor tales with an interesting plot and clever twists,” she continued. “All that said, one of my favorite and most requested stories is ‘Rindercella,’ a short Spoonerism word-play take on ‘Cinderella,’” she said. Many of today’s storytellers, including McPhie, do use ancient myths and legends, and the oldies but goodies as a basis for their tales when performing. “Whether the storyteller recognizes these patterns and deliberately shapes a story around them or instinctively and unintentionally uses a time-honored form, traditional patterns and expectations often provide a basis for a successful story,” she said. “Some things just resonate in satisfying ways.” In her spare time, this Pala Casino Spa and Resort offers an exciting work environment, storyteller is a busy lady. a competitive salary, and excellent benefits, including She is married and has five Medical, Dental, Vision and 401(k) plans. adult children and 22 grandchildren.

JOB FAIR FRIDAY
Born in Boston, her family moved to California when she was a toddler. McPhie grew up in Pasadena and has lived in San Diego since 1978. She has degrees in English and French literature and is the president of the Storytellers of San Diego, and the Pacific region director for the National Storytelling Network. She said she’s always worked various careers and at various places, but the storytelling has been one of her most favorites. McPhie said she became an adult storyteller because it’s satisfying work. “Storytelling can truly change the world, one person or one group at a time,” she said. “How? That is complicated and different for every teller. Sometimes, a more traditional occupa- Teaching others tion leads to storytelling. McPhie also teaches a Sometimes, an unexpected opportunity presents itself. Sometimes, a teller is recognized for that ability and responds to more and more requests for storytelling. Sometimes, a teller in a more traditional job retires or leaves that job and decides to become a full-time storyteller because it would be interesting and fun. The path is different for each storyteller.” As someone who tells stories to a wide variety of people, she said never tires from spreading the word. “Applications for storytelling are seen in business, speaking, healing, community building, entrepreneurChad Hazelrigg ship, teaching and more,”

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., followed by driving and putting practice, the presentation of colors at 10:45 a.m. and a shotgun start at 11:30 a.m. Operation Game On was created in 2008 by Rancho Santa Fe resident Tony Perez to give returning combat-injured troops suffering from physical and mental disabilities a custom introduction-to-golf package. receive Participants golf lessons from PGA-certified instructors, a professional fitting session at The Kingdom at TaylorMa-

Doctors, prosthetic specialists and counselors have found golf provides mental and physical rehabilitation that rapidly allows combat-injured troops to regain confidence and enjoy an active lifestyle again. “The change from day one is dramatic,” Perez said. “I stay in touch with most of those who have come through the program and hear some wonderful, heartfelt stories about their successes because of OGO. “However, there is still the other side of those that are still suffering from their invisible injuries,” he added. “Most recently, two alumni called me to inform me that they are having some issues and still struggling and asked if they can come back.

Keeping history alive in Deadwood hit the road e’louise ondash
sk town archivist Mike Runge how he views Deadwood, South Dakota, and he’ll likely start talking dirt. No, he’s not passing along town gossip. The city’s archivist is referring to the soil upon which Deadwood has been built and rebuilt. Digging and sifting through the various levels of earth is, for an archivist, like opening packages on Christmas morning. Soil stratigraphy — examining layers of soil — is important to understanding Deadwood’s past, Runge explains. “Deadwood’s history can be divided into several distinct episodes (marked by) catastrophic disasters, primarily fire and flood. Evidence of these disasters leave traces in the soils, including ash, burnt wood or fine silty soils. …artifacts found with the layers provide archaeologists and historians a window into the past. They help tell the story of the people and businesses that once occupied an area.” We are in the basement of Deadwood City Hall, now
a special facility to house and restore artifacts and the city’s paper records. Runge showcases some of the treasures that have been excavated from various locations. “We are all about preserving Deadwood’s past above and below ground,” he explains. For instance, the soil under Nelsons Garage in Deadwood’s Badlands District indicates that there have been several fires and floods in the town. “Some of the artifacts (we found) … contained manufacturers’ marks that could be dated and then compared to the written records chronicling the local events of the mining camps,” Runge says. This basement “vault,” with its valuable artifacts, is a stop on one of several new behind-the-scenes tours offered at the visitors’ center. Today’s guide is longtime resident Raul Ponce de Leon, who says that “Deadwood is the most recognized Wild West towns in the U.S.” Ponce de Leon takes us in and out of buildings and side streets, demonstrating that Deadwood is a treasure trove of history that tells much about our Western frontier. We learn that as our country was celebrating its centennial in 1876, surveyors in General George Custer’s illegal exploration

party discovered gold near what was to become Deadwood. (The exploration was illegal because a recent treaty had designated this land as exclusively Native American — mostly Sioux.) The usual flood of fortune seekers followed, and the population swelled to 13,200. With the boom came legendary figures like Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Potato Creek Johnny, Poker Alice and 15-year-old Dora DuFran, a highly successful madam and town benefactor.

One mine, the Homestake, the largest and deepest in North America, eventually produced 10 percent of the world’s gold supply. It operated until 2002. Because of its colorful history, and perhaps thanks to the HBO series “Deadwood,” the town welcomes 2 million visitors a year — all the more remarkable because Deadwood has only 1,267 residents. “When the show first started airing we saw a huge increase in visitation,” says Amanda Kille, marketing director at the Deadwood Chamber & Visitors Bureau. “At the time, we developed materials to help visitors understand what was real and what was fiction in the series. (The show’s) creators worked directly with Deadwood-based museum staff to blend history with Hollywood.” The popularity of streaming series has kept the visitors coming, Kille adds. And here’s another amazing number: $6.8 million. This is what Deadwood’s visitors’ bureau, historians, archeologists and preservationists reap annually because of — like it or not —
Legalizing gambling in South Dakota in 1989 has produced the revenue needed to preserve and restore Deadwood’s history, including these city ledgers that date from the late 1800s.

gambling. In 1989, South Dakota legalized gambling, which one might liken to striking it rich in the Homestake Mine a century earlier. “Historic preservation began in 1989,” Runge says. “Prior to that, Deadwood was just a sleepy little town. Gaming opened Pandora’s Box for us and allowed us to do a lot of things.” Things like buying the building that we are standing in — a former millworks — and converting it to City Hall with a costly, customized basement vault where priceless artifacts and city

RSF Women’s Fund distributes grant money By Christina Macone-Greene
RANCHO SANTA FE — Since its inception in 2004, the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund has granted more than $3.4 million to nonprofits based in San Diego County. Recently, the organization distributed a total of $254,000 to seven nonprofits. Generate Hope was the recipient of $50,000, which goes to support victims of sex and human trafficking by offering them both refuge and rehabilitation. Also receiving the same dollar amount was North County Lifeline. According to the advisory chair of the Women’s Fund, Sandra Coufal, MD, the branch of Project LIFE provides trauma-informed services for victims of human trafficking throughout San Diego County. The Community Resource Center received funding of $30,000 to decrease domestic violence while educating victims on ways to achieve a healthy lifestyle after being entrapped in a life of domestic violence. The Angels Family Foster Network was also
Vista’s Operation Hope among 7 nonprofits splitting $254,000 the recipient of $50,000. The nonprofit is regarded for its work with babies and toddlers who are in foster care with the aim of providing a loving and nurturing home life. Operation Hope in Vista helps homeless women by providing them and their families with shelter in private room settings where members of the family can be under one roof. The Women’s Fund gifted $25,700, which will help with housing and programs which empower women to be more self-sufficient. The Emilio Nares Foundation received a $25,000. The nonprofit helps families whose children are battling cancer with roundtrip transportation to receive care and treatment. Also receiving $50,000 was Nativity Prep based in San Diego County. The funding will go to help offer scholarships for the tuition-free prep school. “This grant had
$23,300 funded by our group, and subsequently had an anonymous donor intimately aware of our grant vetting process complete the grant request in full by adding $26,700,” Coufal said. “And our member Mindi Butterfield donated another $500 to top off the full grant.” According to Coufal, the Women’s Fund consists of 120 members residing in Rancho Santa Fe. Members contribute $2,300 every year. While $300 covers administrative costs, the remaining $2,000 is deposited into the grant funds for future distribution. Coufal said the group’s grant-vetting process encompasses an entire academic year. “Each year, our membership votes in two specific areas of focus. For example, this past year, we had women’s services and at-risk youth,” she said. Once the focuses have been determined, they are posted onto the Women’s Fund website no later than Aug. 1. Coufal said that generally they receive about 100 grant requests. “Each grant request can be for a maximum of $50,000,” she said. “We begin our grant-vetting process by forming two work groups, one for each area of focus.” The groups consist of member volunteers, she added. “These groups collectively decide the top organizations that are then asked for more detailed grant proposals in January,” Coufal said. “These proposals are then reviewed weekly in the spring until approximately 10 to 12 organizations are scheduled for site
visits by all members who sign up to attend.” Every May, the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund hosts its annual Grant Awards Ceremony. Coufal was quick to say the group has a stipulation that it cannot fund the same organization for the same purpose within three years of an awarded grant. “So, the nonprofits this year have not been funded within the past three years,” she said. “We have detailed records of all the grants which we have made since our inception in 2004.” Coufal said the Women’s Fund recently received a sizeable anonymous donation of $326,700. The anonymous donation of $26,700 that went to Nativity Prep came from this. For the next three consecutive years, $100,000 from this donation will be added every January to the pooled grant fund amounts. “This generous donation will allow us to fund at least two more nonprofit groups each year for the next three years,” she said, adding how the extra money will allow the organization to fund nonprofits that do critical and necessary work. “I feel that this anonymous donation validates the process and the work that our members have voluntarily done and developed over the past 14 years,” she said. “It cements the purpose of group philanthropy creating a larger impact for our San Diego County neighbors that are less fortunate than ourselves.” To learn more about the Rancho Santa Fe Women’s Fund, including membership information for women residing in the 92067 or 92091, visit http:// rsfwomensfund.org.

The best way to keep coyotes out of residential areas is by “hazing” them with loud noises or water. The Humane Society recommends never running away from them. Courtesy photo
Hazing is how to keep coyotes away By Bianca Kaplanek
DEL MAR — While hazing is considered unacceptable for fraternity initiations, it is the preferred method to deter brazen coyotes who wander into residential backyards. In fact, it was highly recommended in a Del Mar neighborhood alert issued after someone called the city to report that a pet had been the victim of a coyote attack. The caller wanted to know what Del Mar was doing to prevent such occurrences. “We put out some reminders to raise awareness,” Assistant City Manager Kristen Crane said. “I'm not aware of multiple reports or any specific sightings.” According to The Humane Society of the United States. coyotes generally avoid human contact. However, some have adapted to urban and suburban environments and, sensing no real threat, may approach humans or feel safe entering yards even when people are present. Breakfast, lunch or dinner are usually the main attractions. The presence of a free buffet in the form of pet food or garbage can lure coyotes into suburban yards and create the impression that backyards are bountiful feeding areas. And a coyote who finds food in one yard may learn to search for it in others. The boldness of these animals should not be tolerated, The Humane Society warns. One way to dampen this bold behavior is hazing, which includes a variety of deterrents to move an animal out of an area or discourage an undesirable behavior or activity. The practice can help maintain a coyote’s fear of humans and keep them out of backyards and play spaces. To ensure coyotes don’t get used to redundant or single-stimulus devices, sounds and actions, use a variety of different “hazing tools,” such as yelling and arm-waving while approach-
ing the animal. Noisemakers can include anything from a voice, whistles, air horns and bells to “shaker” cans full of marbles or pennies and pots, lids or pie pans banged together. Projectiles such as sticks, small rocks, cans, tennis balls or rubber balls can also be used, but thrown toward the animal, not at it. Hoses, water guns or spray bottles with vinegar water, pepper spray or bear repellent are also acceptable hazing tools. According to The Humane Society, the easiest way to haze a coyote is by being loud and large. Stand tall, wave your arms and yell, approaching the animal if necessary, until it runs away. A coyote that has never been hazed may not immediately go away. If this happens walk toward the coyote and increase the intensity of hazing. The animal may start to leave, but then stop after a distance and look back. It is important to continue to go after the coyote until it completely leaves the area. Try different tactics, such as noisemakers, foot-stomping or spraying the coyote with a hose. Carrying hazing tools such as a whistle, a squirt gun or projectile objects while walking your dog is also recommended. The Humane Society recommends hazing a lone coyote by a variety of people using a several different tools and techniques. Additionally, the animal must be able to recognize the potential threat is coming from a person. So, hiding behind a bush and throwing rocks or hazing from inside a car isn’t effective. There is usually a dominant animal in the group that will respond, and others will follow its lead. After a coyote has been successfully hazed, it may return. Continue the practice. It usually takes only one or two times to haze the animal away permanently. Never run away from a coyote.

tive — in addition to owning the Aviators he’s the WTT’s big boss, too. Actually he’s the league’s biggest fan and what’s the harm in a kid chasing a dream even if it had a different ending? Luddy rubbed shoulders with the game’s stars as an Indiana teenager, working as a ball boy at the state’s annual clay court tournament.

Aviators owner Fred Luddy
“I was standing there with all these great athletes: Rod Laver, Bob Lutz, Stan Smith and others,” said Luddy, a Del Mar resident. “It was really cool and inspirational.’’ Luddy didn’t include embarassing, without some prodding. Luddy worked a televised match with a wandering mind when a player wondered when the tyke was going to supply the ball for his serve. “I wasn’t paying attention,” Luddy said. “So he threw his tennis racket at me. My parents saw it and were so proud.’’ If they weren’t then, they should see Luddy now. His ServiceNow company was recently named Forbes’ most innovative company. ServiceNow, an IT firm, had revenues of nearly $2 billion last year and is expected to grow 30 percent this year. Software is where Luddy, 63, makes his dough. But he’s got a sweet spot for making tennis accessible to a fresh generation of follow-

red Luddy loved tennis but he was far from an ace. “When I was in seventh grade I started playing,” Luddy said. “I was instantly mediocre and never got any better.” Luddy kept tennis near his heart while he later provided winners in the software world. That’s where he made his fortune and World Team Tennis is fortunate to have Luddy being among its biggest boosters. Luddy’s San Diego Aviators of the WTT are primed for another season at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, starting on July 15. The endeavor, which brings fast-paced tennis in a setting unlike the sport’s prim-andproper reputation, is a hoot to watch. Attending an Aviators match is fun, loud and unpredictable. Wait a second, that sounds like the personable Luddy. “You have to be on top of your game when Fred is around,” said Aviators general manager Jim Ault. “He’s constantly pushing me to try stuff that I didn’t think I could do.’’ In Luddy’s third season, the Aviators are aiming for their third straight WTT final. Luddy is excited not just for his team, which is led by Rancho Santa Fe’s Taylor Fritz, but the entire league. Luddy should be posi-
“The appetite for sports fans is changing,” Luddy said. “It seems they want a bite-sized portion instead of the whole meal.” Which is a plus for the accelerated action in the WTT. There are five matches with each set lasting about 15 minutes with the event going a shade past two hours. Luddy’s audience isn’t at La Costa for a long time, but they’ll have a good time and that is Luddy’s goal. “I like to see the kids meet the players and get some autographs,” he said. “It might even get the kids off their electronic devices and they can spend some time with their parents.” A Silicon Valley guru suggesting something other than the latest gadget? Yes, and no, as Luddy’s push for the WTT includes a social media barrage which bombards the 20 countries from which the players hail from. “If someone from South Africa is getting ready to play, we tweet it out and push it out there,” Luddy said. “We are streaming out everything for free and we think that’s the way to make the WTT grow.” Luddy’s strides since retrieving tennis balls is impressive. He counts those former players as friends, and that includes Laver, the Carlsbad resident and whose court the team plays on at La Costa. “Fast-forward 45 years,” Luddy says as he cranks up the time machine. ‘It’s pretty amazing.”

Birds of a feather … flock to our yard small talk jean gillette
ll right, students. Take your seats, please. Today’s lesson will be your last on the hatching and raising of quail. So, for those just catching up, my interesting spouse decided that La Costa and California’s quail population needed a little help. He reads a lot, but I still don’t know what brought him to this conclusion. Not all his projects spring from logic, so I just rolled with it. I spotted a receipt from a poultry distributer and thought he had decided to raise chickens. Oh, no (I think I am rather glad). He had ordered three dozen Valley quail eggs. You have seen this critter if you have ever done a report on the great state of California. It is our state bird. OK, so out of 36 eggs, 16 hatched, which is amazing, according to general expectations. Two failed to thrive. Two escaped the brooding pen and were never seen again. One flew off into the wilds of the garage when they were being moved to the fledging cage. Finally, yesterday, my husband turned them all loose. Most of them flew up into our macadamia trees.
Eventually, we had 11 confused, young quail wandering around our backyard. As my daughter was helping her dad do a head count, she turned toward the empty cage and saw a magnificent, gutsy, enormous hawk sitting atop it. We think it was drooling. We politely asked it to leave. No mother was ever more solicitous of their youngsters than my husband of these birds. He left lights on all night, in case they needed to see how to get back to the semi-protection of the cage. After the hawk visit, I truly expected one or two to be missing the next morning, perhaps snagged by an owl. But, voila, all 11 were accounted for. They have been hopping and flying around the yard all day, making adorable, soothing quail sounds. The hawk was back the next morning but again, was shooed away. My husband is making regular patrols around the yard about every 15 minutes, so I’m not expecting any trouble. Husband thinks they will eventually fly off to the nearby watershed. I am skeptical, but quite content to have them stay nearby. I am most curious how it will go, and you know I will keep you updated, whether you like it or not. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who thinks her big softy of a husband would have named the birds by now, but they all look alike.

More EV charging stations come to Carlsbad By Steve Puterski
As electric vehicles and hybrids become more popular, cities continue to invest in infrastructure, notably charging stations. Last week, the city of Carlsbad added three locations for EV drivers to charge their batteries. Motorists can now charge at Stagecoach Community Park, Pine Park and a cityowned parking lot on State Street between Oak Avenue and Carlsbad Village Drive. In total, the city now has four EV charging locations. Alga Norte Park was
the first, and has a total of 16 charging portals, and there are 10 at Stagecoach. More importantly, though, the EV additions are complementing the city’s push to reduce greenhouse gasses as part of its Climate Action Plan. “Emissions from gas and diesel vehicles account for the vast majority of greenhouse gas emissions in Carlsbad,” said Mike Grim, who administers Carlsbad’s Climate Action Plan. “Every mile you can travel in an electric vehicle, carpooling and even biking

A funeral serves a wide range of purposes, with religious, psychological and physical significances. There are many aspects and details to a meaningful service - a celebration of the life of a loved one - that are arranged with the assistance and guidance of a caring and professional funeral director or arrangement counselor. Many times, these services are provided at the time of need. However, many people prefer to arrange everything prior to need because this allows decisions to be thought out and made without the stress of a recent death. We are happy to answer all your questions and to provide information, without any obligation, on pre-arrangements and/or optional pre-payment options. Please feel welcome to contact us at your convenience to schedule an appointment. We have answers for your questions!

and walking, adds up to a marked improvement in our air quality and progress in meeting our Climate Action Plan goals.” The plan calls for increasing the amount of zero-emissions vehicle miles traveled in Carlsbad from 15 percent to 25 percent by 2035, according to the city. As for the city-owned EV stations, they use the ChargePoint network and charge a fee of $0.35/kWh. Looking forward, though, the city is analyzing other locations to add more EV stations. According to the city, a 2015 Center for Sustainable Energy infrastructure assessment found other city-owned sites with potential include The Shoppes at Carlsbad parking lot, City Hall, the Cole and DoveCROP libraries and the Fara.93 day Administration Center. .93 The Stagecoach and State4.17 Street locations were 4.28 because existing chosen electrical service capacity made these sites the most feasible. Meanwhile, EVGO Services LLC, a division of NRG, is under a legal
mandate to build out California's electrical vehicle charging system infrastructure in workplace and public facilities statewide, at no cost to the public agencies or property owners. The city entered into an agreement with EVGO Services in July 2016 to install the base units for the new charging stations at the State Street and Stagecoach Park locations. The city then contracted with ChargePoint to provide the charging terminals. The Pine Avenue Community Park location just underwent major improvements, including a new community center and gardens. According to Grim, when the city builds new facilities it’s become routine to work in as many environmental sustainability features as possible. In addition to the charging stations, the new Pine Avenue Community Center has solar power, natural lighting, smart lights and temperature controls, and even a water bottle filling station that tells you how many plastic bottles you save with each refill.

New 7 Mile Kitchen in Carlsbad promises eating & drinking pleasure taste of wine frank mangio
arlsbad now has another reason to get out and eat, drink and play with the opening of the new and innovative 7 Mile Kitchen at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa, soon to be joined by its sister hotel, Westin Carlsbad Resort and Spa, just above Legoland. If there’s a party going on, chances are it’s happening at 7 Mile Kitchen’s airy, comfy colorful restaurant and extensive new pool next door. You can sit in or sit out in the 4,000-square-foot glitzy surroundings which include a slick cocktail, wine and beer bar supervised by Beverage Director Steve George. George also handles the bar at the more upscale sit-down Twenty/20 Grill. The chef is Gil Manipon, who deserves all kinds of kudos for his selection

elder or a dependent adult to exercise that degree of care that a reasonable person in a like position would exercise.” The code provides many examples of neglect, including not helping maintain personal hygiene, not providing proper food or shelter, not maintaining adequate health or safety conditions, among other
of seven artisanal pizzas, created with handmade dough and house-made tomato sauce baked in a super-sized Neopolitan-style, wood-fired oven, at more than 700 degrees. And it doesn’t stop there. The pizza sauce is made with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh herbs and the best olive oil available. My craving for the perfect pizza knows no bounds, and going through the 7 Mile list is one of the more delightfully difficult decisions out there. That’s why I’ll keep returning. My choice after examining each …the “Wild ‘Shroom,” with roasted wild mushrooms, prosciutto and white truffle cream. Cost is $15 for a six-piece pie. You’ll have a great time with the rest of their extensive menu, including remarkable ravioli and lasagna and lots of fish and beef choices. Mixoligist George pointed out some exclusive cocktail names, 35 wines and 10 beers on the wide ranging list. A favorite wine from Italy had a nice glass and bottle price, the Banfi things. Oakmont of Escondido Hills markets itself as a luxury, affordable retirement community, according to its website. It is owned by the Windsor, California-based Oakmont Management Group. Oakmont owns 20 communities throughout California and has plans to open another facility — Oakmont of Carlsbad — in 2019, according to its website.

Rosso Centine from Montalcino in Tuscany. A recommended mixed drink is the “Strawberry Balsamic Shrub” with all-fresh produce added to a vodka base. See more at 7milekitchen. com. Justin is the western-most Paso Robles wine property with fine wines that have enabled it to identify itself as a leading winery in all of California. For years it was operated by banker turned winemaker
Justin Baldwin, who had a love for French blended wines from Bordeaux. His style evolved from old world to new world, with a very high flavor profile. Sal Ercolano, the high profile restaurateur at Seasalt Seafood Bistro in Del Mar, caught on to the Justin story, and after a threenight sell-out wine dinner with the Prisoner wines in Napa Valley, welcomed his adoring public with another “three-peat” dinner event WINE BYTES featuring Justin and its • A Batasiolo Barolo Landmark Vineyards wine wine dinner happens at
The 22-page legal complaint, featuring three separate exhibits, lays out a timeline beginning with a hospitalization which ensued in 2014. From there, Davis alleges that her health began to crumble rapidly, culminating with her departure from Oakmont this past April. Davis has “dementia, a history of falls, a history of combativeness and agitation, and a history of infections,” according to the complaint and she alleges that Oak-
mont should have known this medical history and taken it into account in treating her between 2014 and 2018. During that time period, Davis is alleged to have been hospitalized multiple times, fallen on several instances, gotten into physical altercations with other residents and staff and suffered wounds including ear lacerations and bruising. “Defendants knowingly disregarded this risk and failed to adequately assess,

division. Recently, Justin was purchased by Fiji Water and in some quarters there was a collective groan as to what a water company could do with a quality wine. But groans changed to applause as Justin not only got better, it got less expensive. Their Cabernet Sauvignon can be found in many wine departments for just $21.99. Each night, Seasalt positioned the final Justin tasting for the new release 2015 Justification, a right bank Bordeaux Blend highlighting Cabernet Franc and Merlot with 19 months in French Oak ($60 at the winery.) There is the more wellknown Isosceles, for slightly more dollars, but for my money, Justification justifies your buying decision. Next event at Seasalt is “A Night in France” and it happens at 6 p.m. July 26. Make your reservation at (858) 755-7100. See more of the Justin story at justinwine. com.

generate and implement and adequate plan of care,” reads the complaint. “That in so doing, Defendants failed to meet Naomi Davis’ needs and failed to comply with the rules, laws and regulations governing their facility.” After being moved to a different facility in April, however, Davis alleges that these ailments subsided and she has not fallen since being moved. Davis, details the complaint, also has regained some of her memory capacity, including the ability to recognize her family. Oakmont Management Group has previously faced civil lawsuits at other facilities, including most recently in Santa Rosa, California, at its Villa Capri facility. That case, also falling under the banners of elder abuse and neglect, was filed in November in the aftermath of the Tubb Fire in Napa County and Sonoma County. The wildfires burned down the Villa Capri housing complex. The plaintiffs allege that Oakmont was neglectful in its evacuation planning and execution and have sued for elder abuse, negligence, false imprisonment, wrongful death and a litany of other tort law damages. Two of the plaintiffs in that case died just weeks after the wildfire evacuation, with family members stepping in to sue on behalf of their estates. The outlet BuzzFeed News further reported that the California Department of Social Services has opened up an investigation in the aftermath of the Santa Rosa wildfire evacuation incident as to whether Oakmont followed its evacuation plan.

The Saturday Beachside fest starts at $70. Details at calwinefest.com. email@example.com after opening that query, the Department of Social Services opened another one after it was reported that Oakmont’s employees began demolishing materials at its Fountaingrove living center — also located in Santa Rosa — before authorities had a chance to do a comprehensive search for bodies and other hazardous materials. Oakmont is also subject to an elder financial abuse and fraudulent business practices class action lawsuit which is ongoing in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. In that case, Lollock, Et Al v. Oakmont Senior Living Center LLC, the complaint alleges that Oakmont does not maintain proper staffing levels to match with the residents’ needs, despite attesting to that in contracts given to its prospective residents. “This is false and misleading because the results generated by Oakmont's resident assessment system are not used to set staffing at each facility, Instead, as a matter of corporate policy, Oakmont allocates expenditures for staffing at each facility based on predetermined and static budgets designed to maximize revenue,” reads the complaint for that lawsuit. “As a result, Oakmont's facilities do not have sufficient numbers of trained staff to provide promised care services to its residents.” Officials from Oakmont of Escondido Hills and Oakmont Management Company did not respond to repeated requests for comment for this story. The attorney for Naomi Davis, Stephen Garcia, also did not respond to repeated requests for comment.
