County tops 25K cases, 500 deaths
‘General culture’ of discrimination at school claimed
By City News Service
By Samantha Nelson
REGION — San Diego County crossed two major milestones in the COVID-19 pandemic July 22, reporting more than 25,000 total cases and more than 500 fatalities. With 587 new cases and 18 deaths announced Wednesday, the region’s totals reached 25,107 cases and 505 deaths. As a result of numbers that continue to rise, Supervisor Greg Cox announced that San Diego County was starting a Safe Reopening Compliance Team that will provide assistance to businesses and residents not in compliance with public health orders. The team’s exact powers were not immediately clear. “This is a carrot approach, not a stick,’’ Cox said. “But we still have the stick and other tools to ensure compliance.’’ Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said the team would enable the county to step up enforcement on “egregious violations’’ — but the details on that enforcement were also unclear. Officials were also reaching out to the various cities and communities in the county to collaborate on solutions. “This is out of an effort to keep our businesses open, not to close them,’’ Fletcher said. After three days with a downward trend in cases, the 587 reported Wednesday marked a swing back in the other direction. The 18 deaths were also one of the largest daily numbers of TURN TO COUNTY ON 2

ESCONDIDO — Dozens of current and former students of The Classical Academies, a publicly funded charter school organization, have recently come forward with stories of discrimination they experienced while in school. The Classical Academies is a public charter school organization with campuses throughout North County. The organization has been around since 1999. In early July, an Instagram account called Discrimination @TCA (@discrimination.at.tca) appeared and began posting anonymous experiences of discrimination from current and former students of The Classical Academies. The account also includes posts from students alleging sexual harassment, body shaming, bullying and a lack of adequate counseling resources among other issues experienced in the school. Many of the posts claim that students were openly racist and homophobic yet were not punished for their actions. “At my time at CAHS (Classical Academy High School) I witnessed several white students use the n-word,” one post reads. “When asked to stop, they said it was too

VISTA — Residents are not giving up hope on recent commercial development project along Hacienda Avenue and Vista Village Drive. About 50 people wearing masks and many holding signs gathered at the intersection on July 14 next to the plot of land approved for Sunroad Plaza, which will feature four drivethrough restaurants and a to-be-determined fifth
business. The project is also just off State Route 78. The Vista City Council approved the project, 3-2, during a June meeting. Councilwomen Amanda Rigby, who represents District 3 where the project is located, and Corrina Contreras voted no. Lonna Leghart helped organize the rally, along with Jaydon Sterling-Randall. The two women acknowl-
edged the rally may not make a difference but are holding out hope the council will call back the item and look for a different project. “The goal was to widen the awareness about Sunroad because it seems as though the folks most concerned have already written letters,” Leghart said. “We want the reach to go beyond our neighborhood … and to those who drive through that intersection

Yet another learning curve
imagine it’s no surprise to most of you that being home lots and having more leisure time the past few months has brought many surprises. The surprise that is really smacking me around is that my 33-year-old daughter has confirmed she is truly autistic. She has done deep research and has shared all that research with me. It is all so obvious now. The hardest part is that this comes with dozens of tales of her childhood, explaining many things, but most basically why she was so miserable. This is a tough pill to swallow for a mom. Like everyone, I raised my children the best I knew how and tried hard to give them a happy childhood. Still, I have known, for some time, that I was the wrong mother for my daughter. Now I understand why that is. It doesn’t make me feel any better.
and enlightening, because in spite of being around educators for years, I did not understand all the different manifestations autism can take. I just knew my daughter had lots of learning problems and was an introvert. I thought being autistic meant you rarely spoke and regularly curled up in a corner from sensory overload. I now understand that being autistic can be so much more and so much more subtle — and that it is crippling in our society. I need to add that just asking people to be aware of autism doesn’t bring understanding. And so, it is my time to learn and to change and try help my adult child to find her way. Keep us in your prayers, my friends.

Escondido sales tax measure won’t be on November ballot By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — A motion to place a 1% sales tax measure on the November ballot failed to garner enough votes at the Escondido City Council meeting on July 15, which means the city will need to find other ways to close the budget deficit. The measure aimed to address a structural budget gap exceeding $176 million over the next 18 years, according to city staff. The
1% sales tax would generate $25 million annually in new revenue for maintaining city services. Before the vote, the council heard a presentation on a recent community survey where 71% of residents expressed support for the measure, which would address the budget deficit, as well as fund projects and programs in the community. “Although I’m not a fan of raising taxes and I’m hopeful to add some
accountability language to what’s being presented, I think the options are minimal,” Councilwoman Olga Diaz said during the meeting. “Putting something on the ballot does not mean it’s approved; it means we’re soliciting input from our community about whether or not they want to be taxed.” Mayor Paul McNamara also emphasized that it should be left up to the voters. “I’m not crazy about
raising taxes, but there’s a reality staring us in the face. I think that if we don’t bring in other revenues, we’ll create a downward spiral,” McNamara said. A unanimous vote was needed to pass the measure, but the motion failed 3-1 with McNamara, Diaz and Consuelo Martinez voting for the measure, while Michael Morasco voted against it. Morasco said he was concerned that, now, in the
midst of the COVID-19 crisis, may not be the right time for an increased sales tax. He also added that with three council seats up for election and preparations underway for a new city manager and new assistant city manager, the council should wait until after the November elections to consider it. The current sales tax rate in Escondido is 7.75%, which includes the statewide rate of 7.25%, plus a half-cent for San Diego
County’s TransNet program. Of that amount, the city receives 1%. A term-limits measure for the mayor, council members and city treasurer was also proposed for the November ballot but failed, 2-2. The council also approved allowing weddings and receptions in the rear yard of the historical Wohlford-Ting House and approved allowing menu board signs and oversized directional signs at car washes.

Virtual Comic-Con runs through Sunday and is free By City News Service
REGION — Comic-Con@Home began on Wednesday, allowing comic book and pop culture fans to celebrate the first-ever virtual event for one of San Diego’s largest conventions. Due to COVID-19, organizers canceled the San Diego Comic Convention for the first time in its 50-year history. Comic-Con, an annual celebration of comics and pop culture, is one of San Diego’s largest and most noteworthy events and has been held in the city since 1970. The virtual event will set another precedent by making the whole thing — panels, workshops, exhibits and the masquerade ball — free. The event runs through Sunday. “We’re very excited about bringing Comic-Con online,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson for the Comic-Con International. “And it couldn’t have been achieved without the help and support of so many of our usual friends, and some new ones too.” The virtual event will exist on the www.comic-con. org website, which will transform to Comic-Con@ Home. The redesigned home page will be the means by which participants can access programming, the online exhibit hall, and various events and interactive
elements, as each will be supported by a variety of different platforms. While programming for each day will be available on the website, Comic-Con is working again with Sched.com for those who would like to create their own daily schedule. The Comic-Con Museum began offering activities through Comic-Con Museum@Home earlier this summer, which will continue through the Comic-Con@Home weekend and beyond. YouTube will host over 350 panels and programs as well as the 2020 Eisner Awards. The exhibit hall will feature approximately 700 exhibitors and DC Comics, longtime supporters of Comic-Con, will again provide artwork for the official event T-shirt. Amazon Prime Video is the official sponsor of the Comic-Con 2020 printat-home badge, which will allow participants to print and wear the free badge and take part in yet to be announced interactive challenges. The 46th annual Masquerade will open for viewing Friday, with winners announced Saturday. Comic-Con will also be offering an online version of its Souvenir Book, which will be available as a free, downloadable PDF, starting Wednesday.
ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Union High School District (EUHSD) school board approved a two-model plan for the upcoming school year, which lets families choose between a full-time distance-learning plan or a two-day hybrid-learning model. The board met on July 14 and decided on providing their students with two options. The first is a fully online Independent Study through Edgenuity, an online learning platform, and the second is a Two-Day Blended Model where students attend classes two full days on campus each week and attend classes virtually through Canvas, a learning management system, for the other three days. After deciding to delay the start of the school year by two weeks citing current health conditions, the district plans on resuming classes on Aug. 25. The board also voted, however, to begin the school year for both models
completely virtually, meaning online learning will continue through the district's first grading period, Sept. 25. April Moore, the assistant superintendent of educational services at EUHSD, told The Coast News that until then, the board will continue to evaluate if the district will, in fact, be ready to shift from fully distanced learning to the blended model once Sept. 25 rolls around. “Our two priorities in developing our plans have been safety and flexibility,” Moore said. “The plans developed represent a culmination of extensive stakeholder support including student voice, parent advisories, staff and administrative input. Overall, our staff members, parents, and community have been appreciative of our frequent and transparent communication.” She added that students and families who choose the Two-Day Blended Model may decide to remain in distance learning
after Sept. 25 even if the class becomes available on campus two days each week. “We believe that safety is of critical importance for all members of our school district community, including our students and their families and our staff and their families,” Moore said. “We believe that in-person learning should be the goal and conducted if and when it can be done so with safe conditions.” The district also outlined plans to implement face covering requirements, social distancing measures, health screening procedures, increased sanitation protocols and staff training measures if and when in-person learning resumes. EUHSD’s decision came only a couple of days before California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s announcement of his pandemic plan for California’s schools. Newsom’s plan centers on five key areas including the use of local health data to determine when to resume in-person leaning,
mask requirements, physical distancing, regular testing and rigorous distance learning. “Learning is non-negotiable,” Newsom said during his announcement. “The virus will be with us for a year or more, and school districts must provide meaningful instruction in the midst of this pandemic. In California, health data will determine when a school can be physically open — and when it must close — but learning should never stop. Students, staff, and parents all prefer in-classroom instruction, but only if it can be done safely.” The plan also says that schools located in counties that are on the Monitoring List must not physically open for in-person instruction until their county has come off the Monitoring List for 14 consecutive days. San Diego County is currently on the state’s Monitoring List. For details on EUHSD’s two-model plan, visit: EUHSD.org.
Police academy ceases T C N G ‘sleeper hold’ training ADVERTISING SALES HE
SAN MARCOS — Cadets at the Palomar College Police Academy are no longer being trained to perform a controversial technique known as a carotid restraint, after the director of the academy joined other California leaders in urging for the change. Michael Andrews, director of Public Safety Programs for the college, was one of several leaders from police academies from around the region who raised concern following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Their efforts resulted in the official cancellation of carotid restraint training by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST), which accredits police academies in the state. “Palomar College is committed to training professionals, including police officers, who will serve and build up the community,” said Interim Superintendent/President Jack Kahn. “We applaud the commission, and our Po-
lice Academy leaders, for taking meaningful action on this issue.” The decision follows a June 3 announcement from San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore that his department was curtailing the use of the carotid restraint, commonly known as a “sleeper hold,” that became part of the national debate focusing on police brutality in the wake of Floyd’s death. “Effective last week, the tactic is no longer being employed or used in the academy setting, period,” Andrews said. “We won’t even use it as an example. It will just simply be erased from training.” The official title of the technique in question is a “Carotid Restraint Control Hold,” and Andrews said what was originally a tactic of last resort gradually became more common during arrests. Andrews said that it is the academy’s duty to prepare tomorrow’s law enforcement officers for tomorrow’s conditions, and that “policing as we know it is going to change.”

W Water safety: Knowing what to do will help save lives
ecently, Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District firefighters responded to the report of a near drowning of a child. They arrived to find that someone had been able to get the child out of the pool and perform CPR while waiting for help to reach the scene. Had the child not received care until the firefighters and paramedics arrived, the outcome could have been different. Fortunately, someone knew what to do and the child is expected to make a full recovery. Knowing what to do in a water emergency, and how to prevent them in the first place, saves lives. Whether swimming, boating, bathing, or simply spending time near water, it takes just a few seconds for an accident to happen and drowning is usually quick and silent. A person who is drowning will lose consciousness in as little as two minutes after submersion, with irreversible brain damage occurring within four to six minutes. Children are at particular risk of drowning. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drownings a leading cause of injury deaths in children 1-14 years old and are the leading cause of injury death for young children 1-4 years old. Fortunately, drownings and near drownings are preventable. Taking the following actions can help save a life: • Learn CPR. This is one of the most important things you can do to save a life should a drowning incident occur. As mentioned before, a bystander rendering aid until help arrives greatly increases the patient’s chance of surviving. • Always have a phone
near the pool for emergency use. If possible, the phone should be a “landline” rather than a cell phone. • Know the address of your location in case you have to call 9-1-1. This is especially important if you only have access to a cell phone. If you are at a location such as the beach or a lake that does not have a specific address, know the name of the closest street and cross street. Being able to provide other landmarks, such as a lifeguard tower number, is also helpful. • Make sure pools and spas are enclosed on all four sides with a fence at least 60 inches high with self-closing and latching gates. Latches should be a minimum of 54 inches from the ground and gates should open outward. • Have life-saving devices, such as a hook, pole, or flotation device, near the pool. • Do not allow children to play in the pool area. Store all toys out of the pool area. • Any door that provides direct access to the pool should have an exit alarm installed. • Drains in pools and spas should have anti-entrapment drain covers. • NEVER leave children unattended in or around a pool or water source. ALWAYS have a designated “Water Watcher” who is responsible for watching those in the pool at all times. The Water Watcher should avoid distracting activities such as being on their phone, playing games, reading, or having distracting conversations. If you leave the pool area, designate another Water Watcher or take all children with you. • Every child over the age of three should have swimming lessons. Even
then, they are still susceptible to danger in the water, especially if something causes them to panic. • Children using airfilled swimming aids should always be supervised by an adult within arm’s reach. • When diving, always protect your head and neck by extending your arms over your head. Never dive into shallow water or water with an unknown depth. • A U.S. Coast guard approved lifejacket should be worn for water sports such as tubing, skiing or jet skiing. Air-filled aids such as inner tubes, water wings, and inflatable rafts are not substitutes for approved lifejackets. • Most boating accidents involve the consumption of alcohol. Never drink while operating a boat. Following these simple guidelines can help everyone have a fun and safe time under the sun this summer. For more information on water safety, including building code requirements for residential pools, please visit our website at www.rsf-fire.org. The mission of the Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District is “To serve the public through the protection of life, environment and property from fire and other emergencies through prevention, preparedness, edTcation, and response.” Formed in 1946, the Fire District now spans approximately 50-square miles and protects over 34,000 citizens. The Fire District currently operates out of six fire stations and serves the communities within and surrounding Rancho Santa Fe, Fairbanks Ranch, 4S-Ranch, Elfin Forest, and Harmony Grove.

student, teacher or small group. Even to get to a “breakout” room — where you can do a video chat with less than all the people — you have to ask the “host” to do it for you. A lot of school is normally about hanging out with friends and being social, and you miss out on that, too. In person, school is longer, and it’s easier to share ideas and finish projects. One specific area where online learning seemed harder than in-person learning involved paper workbooks. My teacher told students to scan their work and email the scanned pages to turn them in, but that was an extra step and not a lot of the students even had a scanner. There are also some good parts of online learning, though. For one thing, there’s not as much distraction from the other kids, so you can focus on the subject and learn about it. For example, I wrote some essays about the California Gold Rush for online school last spring. Did you know that Margaret Frank made the equivalent of $400,000 in today’s money by making pies and selling them to miners? Overall, school online is not as much fun as it would be if everyone were there in person. I guess it’s true that something is better than nothing. But distance learning definitely takes some getting used to. Everyone is still figuring it out.

Should North County students pursue STEM? Yes. Maybe. By Dan Brendel
REGION — Will studying STEM — science, technology, engineering and math — set young adults up for good jobs in San Diego County? Having perused various data, our short answer is that studying STEM won’t hurt. In particular, a solid foundation in coding and computer skills is broadly applicable, even in non-technical jobs. Our longer answer is that STEM demand may vary considerably, depending on sub-discipline, where you’re willing to live, and whether you’re willing and able to pursue advanced degrees. Parents and students should do their research and manage plans and expectations accordingly. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2015 published an article entitled, “STEM crisis or STEM surplus? Yes and yes.” Comparing the STEM job market to the fluid taxicab (haha) market, the authors write: “Just as there are separate lines for taxicabs that accept credit cards versus ones that do not, there are distinct lines for each type of STEM occupation. The demand for workers with doctorates in mechanical engineering is different from the demand for those with bachelor’s degrees in mechanical engineering, and the supply of workers with doctorates in the biomedical sciences is different from the supply of those with doctorates in physics. There are also spatial differences. A queue of waiting taxis may be a common sight at an airport, but outside a hotel it may be more common to see a queue of waiting passengers. Analogously, the de-

Moreover, coding skills translate across industry sectors. (Your correspondent, for instance, frequently uses coding, geographic information systems and basic data science knowledge for journalism.) Translatability could prove valuable in a labor market Bruvold describes as requiring workers to “adapt and learn and pivot.” Of STEM fields in San Diego County, software development and market research analysis offer the most job openings and fastest growth, according to the California Employment Development Department’s 2016-2026 employment projections. Second, Bruvold noted sub-disciplines relating to biotechnology and biomedical devices. Local companies in this sector added more than 6,000 jobs — a growth rate over 40% — over 9 years, according to a 2018 report from Bruvold’s organization and BW Research Partnership, a Carlsbad-based firm. Third, specialties related to unmanned vehicles, especially the aerial sort. Companies like General Atomics and Northrop Grumman have added thousands of jobs over the last decade, demanding skills in aviation technology, materials sciences and software, Bruvold said. Finally, advanced manufacturing. Automated processes — like those used by San Marcos’ Hunter Industries, which makes irrigation equipment, and Carlsbad’s Nordson Electronics Solutions, which makes industrial fluid dispensing devices — require technical aptitudes. More advanced or management-level jobs in STEM industries
would draw from a national or even global talent pool. But Bruvold thinks companies prefer local applicants for entry-level positions, as it costs a lot to fly in non-local interviewees and relocate households. Nevertheless, parents and students might bear in mind that most jobs aren’t STEM jobs, even in the STEM-richest regions, including San Diego County (see chart). And not every STEM field that’s growing relative to some timeframe is adding tons of jobs in an absolute sense. In San Diego County, roughly as many or more bachelor’s-degree jobs are open for teachers, general and operational managers, and registered nurses as for software developers, according to the state’s 2016-2026 employment projections. The county’s fastest growing fields include operations research and information security analysis, but they’ll add only a few hundred jobs. The Bureau of Labor Statistics puts the average STEM proportion of regional labor markets, including 530 metropolitan areas nationwide, at about 5%. In San Diego County, the share is about 10%. To further research specific STEM fields, readers might start by checking out the Employment Development Department’s online “occupational guides” tool. This tool enables users to explore occupational fields by county, pay, job openings, growth rate and personal interests. For students enrolled in public schools, consider reaching out to your school district’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) department.

mand for petroleum engineers in Texas is different from the demand for petroleum engineers in Massachusetts.” Similarly, compiling various federal data, The New York Times in 2017 published a chart entitled, “So Many Degrees, So Little Demand,” comparing nationwide post-secondary degrees against job demand in five STEM fields. Graduates with majors in life sciences (excluding health care), engineering, physical sciences and mathematical sciences far outnumbered job openings. Only in the field of comput-
er science did degrees and job openings roughly balance. That said, California’s outlook for STEM career opportunities has long been optimistic. The state government in 2015 forecasted that, by 2022, California would boast the largest share of nationwide STEM jobs — two-thirds higher than second-place Texas, more than double third-place New York. Erik Bruvold of the San Diego North Economic Development Council, a membership organization, expresses similar optimism for North County
specifically. He says “tons” of local companies can’t find enough workers with adequate technical backgrounds, pointing to four STEM sub-disciplines as exhibiting the most local growth potential. First, anything related to software and coding. College students need not pursue a computer science degree specifically, but they should consider leaning toward computer sub-disciplines in whatever field they choose. For example, electrical engineers might focus on firmware or computer-aided design rather than hardware, he said.

WATER GRANT FOR O’SIDE
The city of Oceanside received $4.565 million in state grant funding from the Department of Water Resources (DWR) to expand the city’s compressive water reuse efforts. The state grant funding is available through California’s Integrated Regional Water Management Program. Oceanside received funding for two different water reuse projects: Pure Water Oceanside and expanding recycled water infrastructure. City Council set a goal of a 50% local water supply by 2030. In response, Oceanside has developed a comprehensive water reuse program including expanding water recycling and advanced water purification. PSY-TEK GOES ROBOTIC

fun to stop and that they enjoyed saying it.” In the same post, the former student explains they were afraid to tell the administration what they witnessed at the time. When the student finally did reach out, they were disappointed by the response. Some posts also claim that the school administration is homophobic and often censors topics involving the LGBTQIA+ community. One post alleges that after a student told a story, during an assembly, about coming out the closet, the school administration sent out a letter to CAHS families that the speech should have never happened. Another post came from a current student who was part of the school’s Gay Straight Alliance student club. “We had two pride flags stored in the club room, and would pull them out during meetings,” the post reads. “One day, we came in and found both of the flags were in the trash.” Anzy Adams, a former student who graduated from CAHS in 2013, said the school reinforced conservative standards and beliefs even though it is a publicly funded charter school without any religious affiliation. According to Adams, racism, sexism and homophobia were pervasive at the school. “There is a general culture of homophobia, sexism and racism that all high schools struggle with to a degree, but at Classical in particular it felt like a lot of this behavior went excused,” Adams said. Adams also said students were often ostracized for not going to church or for being a newcomer to the school. ment,” Sterling-Randall said. “(Rigby) voted adamantly against it and gave a number of viable reasons.” One of Rigby’s arguments was the increased traffic, which she said will increase the time it takes drivers to get on and off the freeway at the intersection by six to eight minutes. Sterling-Randall said the roads going through the
She noted that many of the students who go to TCA attend North Coast Church. A similar Instagram account called “North Coast Church Abuse” (@northcoastchurchabuse) recently began posting experiences of abuse at the church as well. Adams frequently butted heads with the TCA administration.
According to the account holder, D@TCA has only been up a few weeks yet has heard from nearly 200 people including current and former students, parents and faculty. More than half of the stories have yet to be posted. The account holder said they created D@TCA after hearing about the Instagram account called “Black
in PUSD” (@blackinpusd), which shares stories of racism in the Poway Unified School District. “I talked with some friends from Poway and we had a long discussion of what to do and how to improve,” the D@TCA account holder said. “I then realized that Classical needed an awakening like that.” TCA is aware of the Instagram account and has chosen not to engage with the account “so that students sharing anonymously do not feel attacked or marginalized again,” said Communications Officer Michelle Stanley via email. “We deeply regret any student who felt marginalized or unloved while in their time with us,” Stanley said. “These situations call for us to look deeply at our interactions to improve where needed and be better as an educational organization moving forward.” In many of the posts on the Instagram account,
many of the students felt out of place in the school. Adams agreed with that sentiment. “I just felt really misunderstood during the four years I was there, and that’s what other people felt like,” Adams said. Stanley said TCA wants its students to “advocate their needs so that caring adults can be a source of support.” There are several stories of sexual harassment and assault that are shared on the Instagram account. One alleged that after a student reported an assault from another student, that other student got a “gentle warning” from the school. According to Stanley, the school has “strict policies” that “promote equality and access for all.” It also has policies in place to address sexual harassment and assault. “In the event that harassment or assault would occur, we would swiftly contact local authorities and launch an official investigation,” Stanley said. The school also has an “extensive” counseling team accessible to students. Stanley said the school organization has made a “significant investment in the social and emotional needs of students” over the last decade. Stanley also confirms that the school has no religious affiliations and does not try to censor its students. “As American's (sic), our students know that they have freedom of speech rights and no efforts are made by employees at The Classical Academies to limit or curtail student voices in a manner that would impede those rights,” Stanley said. “When it comes to distraction and disruption, we expect that all students will be kind and treat others well.”
Leghart and Sterling-Randall said they are worried property values may slump as a result of so many drive-through businesses. In addition, Leghart said Panera is relocating, so the city cannot count those people as new jobs and Starbucks may also be relocating to the new development. Also, Leghart said the approval of Sunroad Pla-
za has resurrected a hotel project across the street, which was voted down by the council last year. “He’s going to bring back the hotel,” Leghart said of Julian Shadle, who wants to develop the hotel. “He doesn’t want to build homes next to the freeway and he doesn’t want to build homes across from the drive-throughs.”
We deeply regret any student who felt marginalized or unloved while in their time with us. These situations call for us to look deeply at our interactions to improve where needed.” Michelle Stanley TCA Communications Officer, via email
“I was told on multiple occasions that political activism on campus could be a distraction,” Adams said. Adams and several posts on the Instagram account also criticized the TCA student body and faculty for being mostly white. The person who created Discrimination @TCA (D@TCA) said they grew up in the TCA school system and also experienced discrimination while attending the school. “Although I am a minority student, I was ignorant of any discrimination until high school,” the account holder, who wishes not to be named, told The Coast News. “I realized how lonely I felt with how few students looked like me, and how often I was asked things like ‘Who were your parents?’” The account holder also recalled hearing a student talk openly about how “gross” gay relationships were. quiet neighborhoods will also experience increased noise and traffic. But their main issue is that the city is looking to drive-throughs rather than for projects with higher-paying jobs. They say that they understand the land will be developed, but what goes on the 4-acre plot of land should enhance the area.

Sailing takes me away … from the pandemic hit the road e’louise ondash
confess: There are days when weathering this pandemic is pretty challenging. The biggest obstacle to inner peace for me is the uncertainty of its duration. I try to stay positive and productive; steal ideas from others on how to stay positive and productive; limit my exposure to the news (not easy because I’m a news junkie); and clean out some closets. And when my brain is on overload, I turn to Netflix. All this helps — mostly — including counting my blessings, one of which is our proximity to the Pacific Ocean. When all else fails, we can drive 15 minutes west and enjoy the ocean — walk on the beach or boardwalk, check out the Oceanside pier, paddleboard, surf, fish, kayak and, once in a while, sail. Not that I’m doing the sailing. For that, I turn to my 13-year-old grandson, who is kind enough to invite me to spend an hour with him chasing the wind in Oceanside Harbor. Over the past three years, David Paul (to distinguish him from his father, David), has taken several sailing courses, from beginner to advanced, at both Camp Pendleton and the Oceanside Yacht Club. He’s tried several sports, but nothing grabbed his soul like sailing. “The first beginner class was tough,” he tells me, “but when I took the second beginner class, it
reinforced what I learned. The basics are pretty solid now, (but) sometimes you just have to learn on the water.” Now, with his junior yacht club membership ($18.75 a month), David Paul can take out sailboats (on which he qualifies) as often as he likes. “I love being out on the ocean, especially with friends,” he says. “The ocean is a cool place. When we were sailing at Camp Pendleton, we saw dolphins in the marina. I like being out and practicing whatever I want to.” According to Discover Boating (www.discoverboating.com), interest in boating and boat sales have recently mushroomed because “after months of being cooped up, people are looking for ways to stay in their safe nuclear family unit while engaging in more exciting adventures.” Yes, I get that, and now, I’m a passenger and sailing crew of one. As we shove off from I-Dock in the 13.5-foot CJF (California Junior Flyer), I sit on the centerboard and David Paul sits on the hull. My job is to pull the sheet (rope) connected to the jib (smaller of the two sails) when my grandson yells “Turn!” He’s a bit reluctant to shout orders at his grandmother, but he eventually gets the hang of it, as do I with the sheet. Lucky for us, the wind picks up and we fly along and heel (tip) from one side to the other. Each time my grandson yells “Turn!” I feel as though the boat is going to capsize. I stifle a squeal, shift to the high side and maintain a death grip on the hull. David Paul doesn’t bat
ESCONDIDO — Recently released data by the federal government revealed that more than 2,000 Escondido businesses received federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans designed to help small businesses financially impacted by the COVID-19 shutdowns. The PPP was created by the Small Business Administration (SBA) as part of the $2 trillion CARES Act that was signed into law back in March. Since then, it has allocated $659 billion to American businesses in the form of loans. According to the report, more than 300 businesses in Escondido received large loans of $150,000 or more. The highest loan that any business received in Escondido was $2 to $5 million. Daniel Fitzgerald, acting regional director of the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in San Diego County, told The Coast News that they helped roughly 8,000 businesses with PPP loans, one-on-one advising, trainings and more. The SBDC is a network of centers that are chartered and partially funded by the SBA to provide support for small businesses at little to no cost. “We assisted in two different ways. Through trainings—we had hundreds of those for both small and large audiences—and in applying for the loan and helping business owners to understand how to utilize the funds and maximize them, and that was done through one-onone business advising,” Fitzgerald said. Fitzgerald said they were able to help people from a variety of different backgrounds, including
those whose primary language isn’t English. “We assisted people in Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Korean, Arabic, Swahili, Farci and more,” Fitzgerald said. “We had to do a lot of active listening. A lot of people are scared and stressed because there is so much unknown during this time, but we wanted to be a resource for them.” He added that the SBDC is available to business owners who are still in need of assistance or still haven’t applied for a loan. Interfaith Community Services in Escondido received a PPP loan of $1 to $2 million. CEO Greg Anglea spoke to The Coast News about their experience with the program. “It has been a really valuable support for us because we have seen such an increase in demand for our services,” Anglea said. “Normally, we rely on hundreds of volunteers to do a lot of our work like meeting with individuals who need assistance, making meals, providing legal assistance, etc. Almost all of those became impossible for volunteers to do, and the loan allowed us to hire additional staff.” He added that the loan also allowed Interfaith to provide resiliency bonuses to their staff who have been on the frontlines providing in person services for the past four months. “We are so appreciative for the resource and, combined with a tremendous outpouring of contributions from the community, it has allowed us to continue to help people during this time of need,” Anglea said. Interfaith has more than 200 full time employees.
According to the SBA, the PPP loan was created to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. The federal government released the data on July 6 for the first time since the loan program began. The release includes loan-level data, including business names, addresses, NAICS codes, zip codes, business type, demographic data, non-profit information, name of lender, jobs supported, and loan amount ranges. Specific dollar amounts were not reported, but loans were grouped into five categories. The lowest range is $150,000 to $350,000, the highest is $5 million to $10 million. Loans of less than $150,000 were reported without the names or addresses of recipients. In San Marcos, over 1,500 businesses got PPP loans Meanwhile, federal data reveals that more than 1,500 San Marcos businesses received PPP loans. The data shows that more than 300 businesses in San Marcos received large loans of $150,000 or more. The largest recipient being an “employment services” firm called Hospitality Team Members, Inc., which received a loan of $5 million-$10 million. Not much information can be found about Hospitality Team Members, Inc. except that it is headed by Jon Fredricks, the president & CEO of Welk Resort Group, a more than $150 million company with several resort locations nationwide. The company’s listed address is also the same address as Welk’s corpo-
rate office. If connected, Welk Resort Group would be one of several major hotel companies in the county that was awarded between $5 million-$10 million through a loophole that has allowed large hotels and restaurants to apply for loans regardless of how many workers they have, as long as each location employs fewer than 500 people. It’s one of the reasons the program came under fire back in April after burning through funds and providing loans to several larger chains, leaving countless small businesses without any sort of relief. Welk Resort Group could not be reached for comment. “The loan may be partially or fully forgiven if the business keeps its employee counts and employee wages stable,” the SBA says. Tomme Arthur, co-founder and COO of Port Brewing/The Lost Abbey in San Marcos, told The Coast News that they received a PPP loan of somewhere between $250,000 and $500,000, which helped them retain almost all of their employees. “We had furloughed about 25 to 30 employees at that point, and that money allowed us to bring those people back in good confidence, knowing that we had the ability to pay them. We are very grateful for that,” Arthur said. Arthur added that they applied for the loan back in April and received it through Bank of America about two weeks later. Because they were able to put at least 60% of it toward payroll for their employees, their loan will be forgiven, according to SBA rules.

ESCONDIDO — The City of Escondido implemented its outdoor dining expansion on July 10, just three days after San Diego County officials ordered the shutdown of indoor operations for a number of businesses including restaurants and bars. In an effort to keep businesses open amid the new countywide restrictions, Escondido is allowing restaurants to temporarily expand outdoor seating. In collaboration with the Downtown Business Association (DBA), the city has reduced the travel lanes on Grand Avenue between Maple and Juniper streets to allow restaurants to create temporary outdoor dining locations. Traffic will be temporarily limited to one travel lane in each direction with the other lane serving as parking. “People are always worried about a parking problem down here, so one thing I wanted to do was make sure we didn’t give up any parking and create extra space for the businesses that needed that extra space,” said Dan Forster, vice president at the DBA. “Hopefully that one lane of traffic will slow people down a little bit and allow them to look around and notice what this place has to offer.” The move is part of the city’s Business Recovery Strategy, which went into
effect back in May, and implements temporary regulatory and non-regulatory measures such as permit extensions, off-site sale and delivery of alcohol and temporary signage relief to assist local businesses. Amber Tarrac, the city’s deputy director of economic development, told The Coast News that, because the county ordered the rollbacks for three weeks, that’s what they are planning for, but if the order does get extended, the city might consider prolonging the outdoor expansion. “We decided — both the business operators and
the city — to be flexible and to just try it and see how it goes,” Tarrac said. “We are all trying to figure out what the best happy medium is. We’re taking it on a case by case basis, but overall there’s been a lot of support for this.” The DBA has committed $10,000 for shade coverings, tables, and chairs to support the effort and are also reimbursing businesses the $100 Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) permit fee to allow them to serve alcohol outside. “Something like this has never really been done before. We have sever-
al events every year, and that’s how we bring in money, but we’re always looking at ways to make it better for the merchants down here, how to get more feet on the street, how to create more visibility and things like that. We just really want to see the area prosper, that’s why we got involved,” Forster said. The city hopes to implement similar strategies citywide, and with more restrictions announced by California Gov. Newsom last week, Tarrac told The Coast News that they’re hoping more Escondido businesses will apply for assistance.

Walton talks food, music, Bike for Humanity lick the plate david boylan
will admit up front that there are very few professional athletes or celebrities whom I can say I’ve “followed” over the years beyond their latest accomplishments. Bill Walton is one of those few. Going way back, even as a little kid, I loved his hippie style, how he was so not a typical jock full of the same cliché sound bites. He marched to the beat of his own drummer and because of his immense talent, has been able to create a career in broadcasting and philanthropy after basketball that has served him well. If you have ever caught him as the color commentator for Pac 12 basketball broadcasts, you know how entertaining he can be. I always make it a point to stop channel surfing when I see that it’s Walton on the mic, as a great story is coming soon that may or may not be basketball related … and that’s the beauty of it. I also have several framed Sports Illustrated covers from my youth hanging in my home office and that collection includes a 1979 cover of a bearded Walton in a suit tossing a basketball in the air. So, yes, it was a thrill to join him in the lush gardens outside his San Diego home recently to record a LTP on 101KGB show and gather content for this column. One of his latest ven-

tures and what brought me together with Bill for an amazing interview is called Bike for Humanity. It benefits Free Bikes 4 Kidz, No Kid Hungry, The Rex Foundation and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. This global initiative created by Walton in April is gearing up for its second rendition with a star-studded cast of elite athletes and celebrities when the ElliptiGO Bike for Humanity II presented by Banner Bank and Events.com takes to streets around the world on Saturday, July 25. It’s an opportunity for participants to get out and ride their bikes for up to two hours during the day to support four outstanding organizations that are do-

Go here to register: www.bikeforhumanity.com So that’s what brought us together, but I should say that Bill seemed equally enthused to talk food, music and plate licking with me. I was well aware of his passion for music of all kinds, but in particular the Grateful Dead, whom he has seen 500+ times and with whom he has appeared many times on stage. That and the fact that his first concert growing up in San Diego was Carlos Santana and, instead of a dream concert lineup of three bands on a stage for a night, he came up with a fantasy music festival full of his favorites, including one of mine, Bob Seger. I can also recall seeing Walton on stage at a Bob Dylan concert at the Del Mar Fair several years ago. Needless to say, his tastes in music are eclectic and diverse, which is the only way to go, in my opinion. Growing up in a family of big hungry guys, Bill also developed a passion for food and, as he put it, “I licked the plate to get every last bite.” Yes, I loved that comment! Another pleas-
ant surprise is that he has limited food restrictions, and while keeping a very healthy eating regime most of the time, he does indulge in meat, fish and poultry on occasion to satisfy those cravings. I had a feeling I was going to dig Bill Walton before we met and as our conversation progressed he just kept validating that notion. For those of you unfamiliar with his athletic accomplishments, they are extensive and impressive and I would encourage you to search his name online not only for his athletic accomplishments but those relating to music, broadcasting and philanthropy. Walton attended high school in San Diego where he attracted the attention of John Wooden and the UCLA Bruins. At UCLA, he won three successive national college player of the year awards, led the Bruins to NCAA championships in 1972 and 1973 and was part of an 88-game winning streak. After being selected as the first overall pick in the 1974 draft, by the Portland Trail Blazers, he led them to an NBA championship in 1977. He won another title with the Boston Celtics in 1986 and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1993. All of this despite a history of injuries and surgeries going back to high school. Post-NBA had him embarking on a second career as a sportscaster, working as both a studio analyst and color commentator, and he won an Emmy Award in 1991. This is even more impressive considering he overcame stuttering to make it happen. So yeah, I am a big fan of Bill Walton’s accomplishments as a basketball player, his eclectic passion for life and music, and his dedication, through projects like Bike for Humanity, to use his celebrity to help those less fortunate. Again, please check out this virtual event happening Saturday, July 25. Go to www.bikeforhumanity.com for all the details and I will see you pedaling around coastal North County this weekend!
BAGBY BEER COMPANY shut down in March and used the break to retool the business from the ground up. The Oceanside brewery just reopened. Courtesy photo
Bagby is back Cheers! North County
here have been teasers on social media that Bagby Beer Company in Oceanside might be reopening soon, and I’ve been craving some Slow Ride Pils ever since co-founder Dande Bagby agreed to appear on the Cheers! podcast. When I saw their official Instagram post declaring their reopening was official, my heart soared. Then I looked at the clock. It was Sunday at 6:15 p.m. Bagby had opened for the first time that day from noon until 6! Insert curse word here. Then I started thinking about my upcoming conversation with Dande, and I had a realization. We haven’t been fighting the same quarantine battle. She’s had access to Bagby Beer! The rest of us are out here surviving without! Not fair! I thought. Back in March I spoke with Dande about Bagby’s shutdown announcement due to COVID-19, and how uncertain the future was not just for the brewery but for all of us. The announcement was a poignant description of the fears and concerns facing small businesses during this time. Now that they are choosing to reopen, I wanted to know what had changed. Why now? The answer was simpler than I anticipated. The coronavirus is still a beast and working around it has been difficult. Dande has expressed the desire that they do no harm as far as possibly spreading the virus to employees or customers or being a hub for that spread. As a company, they’ve also viewed this break during the pandemic as an opportunity to retool their business from the ground up. They looked at operations, training, staffing and
planning and have been making changes. Those changes took time, and now all of that work has come to fruition. For the first time since March, they feel like they can reopen safely. According to their website, “After 4 long months, we are proud to announce we are ready to serve you our award winning beer, killer cocktails, and delicious food!” When I asked Dande why now was the time, she said, “The coronavirus is still there so that is the most important thing. … I also think a lot of evidence is suggesting how safe you can be with masks, and gloves and proper distancing. … It has become more clear to us that it is possible to do this in a really, really safe way, and that’s what we’re doing.” Looking at their safety protocols, what stood out was that there is no interaction of any kind during a pickup. After you order online and head to the brewery, Bagby employees check your ID through the car window, and leave your order on a table next to the parking spot. The brewery employee is far away by the time you get out to grab your order. It is the first truly socially distanced pickup exchange I have seen. It feels like forever, but really we’ve been in the throes of this pandemic here in SoCal for about five months. My family has been aggressively social distancing, giving up travel, and rarely even making trips to the store, preferring to pay for delivery services (be sure to tip well). The few ventures we’ve made have been for beer pickups from local brewers we really wanted to support. The luxury of great local beer has been one thing that has really helped us feel … normal. I’ve already written about how the inherently social nature of humans is the one thing breweries can’t control, and what has impressed me about the TURN TO CHEERS! ON 11

Escondido orthodontist committed to helping kids in need Conservancy By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — For roughly 10 years, an orthodontist from Escondido has used his practice to help children who can’t afford treatment by providing pro-bono orthodontic services for kids who need braces. Dr. Brad Baker of Baker Orthodontics is one of a handful of orthodontics businesses in San Diego County that has partnered with Smiles Change Lives (SCL), a nonprofit that has worked with more than 15,000 families nationwide that can’t afford the full cost of braces. For almost a decade, Dr. Baker has committed to helping at least 2 kids at a time. He explained that each case can take up to two years from start to finish, which makes the end result well worth it. “It’s fun to see the before and after of the whole process,” Baker said. “They come in with a real significant need to have the treatment done, and they can’t afford it, and when we do that treatment for them, and we see how much it transforms their lives, that means a lot. It’s really gratifying.” Baker Orthodontics recently reopened after 2 months of being shut down due to the COVID-19 pan-

are asked to pay a $650 fee. Melanie Johnston, director of marketing at SCL, told The Coast News that the fee doesn’t pay for treatment, but it’s a way for families to pay it forward, and is used to find more doctors and continue the work. “Most orthodontists donate care anyway as part of their community involvement, but the problem is that they don’t know who really needs help and who doesn’t, so we screen families for their pro bono care to make sure there is a financial need and that both the kids and the doctors find the right fit,” Johnston said. SCL is raising money for their cause with Walk Run Smile!, a virtual funrun challenge. Anyone can participate with a $10 donation that will benefit SCL. For more information, visit SmilesChangeLives.com. “We get cards and letters and calls from kids and their moms where they say ‘you have no idea what you’ve done for my child. My child wouldn’t smile, they would talk with their hand over their mouth, they wouldn’t make eye contact with people,’” Johnston said. “It’s just amazing what a difference it makes in the child’s self-esteem and in their confidence.” The wake of the CJF seems to wash away the claustrophobia of quarantine. As I look west, I find peace in the fact that there is nothing between us and Hawaii.

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Creek Conservancy is helping put people back to work through jobs in conservation. The Conservancy has won several competitive grants and will be hiring various contractors — from restoration specialists to computer animation designers — to help with conservation projects throughout the Escondido Creek watershed in Northern San Diego County. “Since there’s enough room to maintain social distancing while performing restoration work, we haven’t had to slow down progress, in fact, we are ramping up efforts this year,” said Juan Troncoso, Conservation Associate for the Conservancy. In 2020, the Conservancy will begin work on a restoration buffer at the Mountain Meadow Preserve, continue restoration work at Reidy Creek, and begin invasive species removal in the Harmony Grove and Elfin Forest areas, all with the support of private companies employing local workers. there is no pandemic.

On July 27th, our Korean War Veterans will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of a 3 year war that changed their lives & changed the world. The three years of fighting cost more than 33,000 U.S. lives and many of the surviving veterans are now in their 90s. It is important that we take the time now to listen to their stories and thank them for their service. The men and women who served in the Korean War were called to protect a people they had never met and to defend a country they have never seen. They answered the call and helped stop the spread of communism at a crucial point in world history. Please join us in honoring our Korean War Veterans on July 27th & every day!

JULY 24, 2020
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A bit of Arian contrariness could be keeping you from getting all the facts. Turn it off, and tune in to what you need to hear. It could make all the difference this week. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Getting an answer to a vital question involving financial matters might take longer than you’d expected. A new factor might have to be dealt with before anything can move forward. Be patient. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Use your good sense to see what might really be driving a colleague’s workplace agenda. What you learn could lead to a new way of handling some old problems. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A change of mind might once again turn out to be a good thing. True, most of your co-workers might not like the delay, but as before, they might appreciate what follows from it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You revel in golden opportunities this week. One cautionary note, though: Be careful to separate the gold from the glitter before you make a choice. Someone you trust can help. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Marriage is important this week, as are other partnerships. Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by sentiment. Instead, try to steer a path between emotion and common sense.
TRIVIA TEST ANSWERS
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dealing with someone who has let you down is never easy. But the sooner you’re able to clear up this problem, the sooner other problems can be successfully handled. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A “friend” who is willing to bend the rules to gain an advantage for both of you is no friend. Reject the offer and stay on your usual straight and narrow path. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) After all the effort you’ve been putting in both on the job and for friends and family, it’s a good time to indulge your own needs. The weekend could bring a pleasant surprise. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might want to do something new this weekend. Close your eyes and imagine what it could be, and then do it, or come up with the closest practical alternative. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your good deeds bring you the appreciation you so well deserve. But, once again, be careful of those who might want to exploit your generous nature for their own purposes. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Trolling for compliments isn’t necessary. You earned them, and you’ll get them. Concentrate this week on moving ahead into the next phase of your program. BORN THIS WEEK: Meeting new people usually means you’re making new friends. People want to be reflected in your shining light. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
