VISTA — A tradition dating back a quarter of a century, car enthusiasts gather at the Vista Rod Run to mingle and compete. Marking its 28th year, car owners will motor onto the historic Main Street in Vista on Aug. 6. More than 350 cars will be vying for 30 trophies. Car collectors will journey from San Diego, Inland Empire, Riverside and Orange Counties. Entry is free to spectators. It’s estimated that 5,000 guests will walk through the event, having the opportunity to check out classic hot rods, muscle cars, street rods, trucks and more. In addition to cars, the streets will be filled with music, including live entertainment. “The Millionaire Beach Bums is the cutest young boy band that plays surf music,” said Debbie Medrano, event planner of Five Star Premiere Events.

“This is their third year back by popular demand.” Millionaire Beach Bums has performed at the San Diego County Fair and has netted the attention of KUSI news. Also on hand will be High Energy DJ spinning ’50s and ’60s tunes. Medrano and her team have been the event planners of the Vista Rod Run for the past four years. The event is hosted by the Vista Village Business Association and sponsored once again by North County Ford. The Vista Village Business Association also welcomes its newest sponsor for the event, car detailing company PDT, Inc.

SAN MARCOS — The City Council has voted to start the process of repealing its sex-offender residency and loitering restrictions after receiving a letter threatening a lawsuit if it didn’t repeal the rules, which courts have ruled unconstitutional elsewhere. The San Marcos City Council’s July 25 vote for the first reading of the repeal was unanimous. Voters in 2006 approved Proposition 83, better known as Jessica’s Law, which prohibited registered sex offenders on parole from living within 2,000 feet of a school or park. San Marcos, following the lead of a number of cities, in 2007 enacted its own local ordinance that prohibited all registered sex offenders, not just parolees, from loitering within 300 feet of where children congregate. But in the years following the ordinances, a number of studies and reports have shown that the restrictions have negative effects, including isolating and increasing homelessness among sex offenders, which makes it harder for law enforcement to monitor them. Courts have ruled that the 2,000-foot residency restriction was unconstitutional in San Diego County and the 300-foot loitering prohibition, adopted by a number of cities, was unconstitutional overall. The state’s Sex Offender Management Board in 2016 in its annual report recommended “against all current and future use of blanket residency restrictions by local jurisdictions,” and said that state authorities would stop imposing the restrictions in the wake of court rulings. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has also informed its contract cities that it would not enforce sex offender loitering ordinances. According to a July 25 city staff report, the city recently received a letter from the Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offender Laws threatening legal action if the city didn’t start the process of repealing its rules.

Concern over outsourcing of public library services By Jamie Higgins

ESCONDIDO — The Escondido Library board of trustees will discuss the issue of outsourcing public library services again at their next meeting on Aug. 8 from 2 to 5 p.m. in Escondido Main Library’s Turrentine Room. The meeting is open to the public. Escondido city staff continue to explore whether there are cost savings to be gained from turning public library services over to a private for-profit company. The Maryland-based company, Library Systems & Services, LLC has built a business taking over li-

braries in cities looking to cut costs and in rural areas. It currently manages more than 80 public libraries, according to the company’s website. On July 11, The Escondido Library board of trustees heard a presentation, at the request of city staff, by the Library Systems & Services, LLC about outsourcing of library services. Elmer Cameron attended the meeting as a member of the library’s board of trustees. Cameron is also president of the Friends of the Escondido Public Library. The presentation was followed by a public com-

ment period. “There must have been at least 50 people that wanted to speak, the vast majority of which were opposed to it,” Cameron said. Cameron, a retired speech pathologist and Escondido School District administrator, finds himself serving dual roles in regard to this issue. The trustees’ responsibility is to make recommendations and advise the City Council and Library Administration with regard to library services and operations. “Our job is to listen, do our due diligence and make a recommendation,”

he said. “We don’t make the final decision.” Cameron made it clear that he does not have a position and does not speak on behalf of the board of trustees. Cameron stated that the trustees were notified by city staff that visits to libraries run by Library Systems & Services, LLC may be planned. As the president of the Friends of the Escondido Public Library, Cameron finds himself in a different role — representing more than 300 paying members and 34 active volunteers. Escondido resident Shelley Spisak feels that outsourcing library ser-

vices could reduce community support for the existing library and for

Local businessman joins 49th District race By Aaron Burgin

REGION — Paul Kerr has a story to tell. The Rancho Santa Fe businessman recently announced his candidacy for the 49th Congressional District, taking aim at longtime incumbent Darrell Issa and President Donald Trump. But “Rancho Santa Fe businessman” isn’t all there is to Paul Kerr, the 62-year-old Democratic candidate said. Paul Kerr, he said, is the man whose childhood was rocked by his mother’s medical diagnosis, which underscored in his mind the need for universal health care in the country. He is the man who served his country in the U.S. Navy, but struggled with life after the military. He is the man who attended San Diego State University at age 29, but due to a rule that sunsets G.I. benefits after 10 years, was forced to pay his way through college and absorb a substantial student debt. And he is the man whose life experience fueled him to success in business. It’s these aspects of his life story that Kerr said he believes will click with voters and lead him to victory in November 2018. “I’ve led a very unique life, and I think that it will resonate with a lot of voters,” Kerr said. “I feel like I have a really unique story to tell about the military, about my struggles working in restaurants, to fighting my way through college, to living with a boatload of student loan debt, my family’s health issues ... there are so many different areas that resonate with the people of this district and will ultimately help me to be successful with the challenge I am about to undertake.”

‘A unique life’

Kerr grew up the oldest of six children in Arizona. He said one of his first life lessons was the hard work of immigrants, when his father had him and two of his brothers get a job picking onions with migrant laborers between the summer of seventh and eighth grade. He lasted two days. “I didn’t last even close to that long,” he said about the summer job. “As a result of that experience, I have a profound respect for men and women who are working so hard to provide for a better life for their kids.” A few years later when Kerr was 16 years old, the family’s life was turned upside down when his mother was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. His father’s company was about to shut down its operations in Arizona, which would have left the family in dire straits because his next employer would not have been able to provide insurance for his mother due to her pre-existing condition. The company, Kerr said,

created a job for his father in Southern California, and the family moved to Escondido. His mother died three years later. Kerr has lived in San Diego ever since. “Out of the kindness of this company, that is how I ended up in San Diego,” Kerr said. “That formed in me a very clear understanding of why we need universal health care in this country. I was this family.” At age 17, Kerr, not seeing a path to college, decided to join the U.S. Navy. He served for three years during the Vietnam era (though makes it clear he did not serve in the war itself). When his service term ended, Kerr said he wasn’t prepared for civilian life. Like many of his fellow service members, Kerr said he wasn’t prepared with the skills necessary to find good paying work. “A lot of these guys get out of the service, like me, and I could land aircraft on the beach, but I didn’t have specific training applicable to civilian life,” Kerr said. “I understand why our veterans struggle, because one day you have discipline, missions and goals and then one day, I walk off of the 32nd Street Naval Station and it’s like, ‘What do I do now?’ ” For the next nine years, Kerr said he worked in restaurants, as a waiter, a bouncer and a bartender. He then applied for a job in management at the restaurant and was denied because he didn’t have a college degree. “I started thinking, is this it?” Kerr said. “I have to do something, so I enrolled in SDSU when I was 29 years old.” U.S. G.I. bill benefits expired 10 years after one’s service ended at that time, Kerr said, so he wound up only having one year of his college education paid for. He worked to pay for college, but still graduated with $20,000 in student loan debt. Following graduation, however, Kerr became successful in commercial real estate and “hasn’t looked back,” he said.

Kerr as candidate

Kerr, who has never held a political office, said he felt compelled to run for congress due to the policies of the current presidential administration under Trump, which he said pose a threat to America’s poor and working class. Issa, who narrowly defeat-

ed a 2016 challenge by Col. Doug Applegate, has not only not stood up to Trump, but has ardently supported his agenda, which runs counter to the wishes of the people in the district, Kerr said. Kerr said that he feels the current political dynamics, in addition to fatigue over “career politicians,” could help him be victorious in the election. “First and foremost, if Trump keeps going down the road he’s going, he could make it very easy, to put it very simply,” Kerr said of a Democrat victory in 2018. “But assuming nothing else changes, I think people are fed up with professional politicians.” Kerr said he’s working hard to communicate his message to voters in both San Diego and Orange County. His campaign, he said, is focused on six issues: assisting lower income and working poor families, solving the country’s health care problem, veterans issues, solving the nation’s immigration problems in a humane fashion, protecting the environment and making college education an affordable option for young Americans. Each of the prongs of his platform comes from some aspect of his life experience, he said. “I am going to be out everywhere, and I am going to get that message out,” Kerr said. One thing he said he wants to do is get voters to know him beyond his current position in life, he said. “I don’t think it will be hard to overcome,” Kerr said of the perception that he is a rich guy from Rancho Santa Fe. “I’ve talked to you for about 15 minutes, and you already know where I’ve come from, and I don’t think you would identify with me as ‘just a wealthy guy.’ “I’ve beat back some really tough challenges and come through to the other side,” Kerr said. Kerr said he feels he will also be successful with independents and moderate Republicans — many of whom comprise the voting bloc that is critical in South Orange County — because of his business background. “That’s a big part of my life, and that is an area that they will look at and say, ‘he’s had to manage a budget, he’s had thousands of people work for him at his firm over the years,’” Kerr said. “I think those issues make me a very attractive candidate for the O.C. voter, especially for the moderates and independents.” Kerr said he will spend much of the next few months networking and fundraising to increase his visibility with voters in what will likely be a crowded Democratic primary field, which includes Applegate and environmental attorney Mike Levin. “I appreciate and respect the fact that people feel motivated to do this and get out and run,” Kerr said, “but at the end of the day, I am laser focused on beating Darrell Issa in November 2018.”

Council votes down distilleries in village By Ruarri Serpa

CARLSBAD – The City Council balked at a request to allow distilleries, but said restaurants were OK in an industrial part of Carlsbad Village, after a three-hour hearing on July 25. The 2-2 decision came after a request by Nicholas Hammond, owner of Pacific Coast Spirits, to amend the city’s planning documents and allow distilleries in a part of the village designated District 6, on Tyler Street between Walnut and Oak avenues, at a location owned by Mayor Matt Hall. Hall recused himself from the discussion and the council was split on the issue of allowing distilleries in this part of the village, with Councilman Mark Packard and Councilwoman Cori Schumacher voting no. Packard said he believed that distilleries and other alcohol-producing businesses don’t benefit neighborhoods in the long run, so he couldn’t support allowing distilleries. “My old friend Thomas Jefferson helped me out, in a quote I found last week,” Packard said. “On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock. So my principle is that ... distilleries, wineries are not going to be a long-term plus in the community, so I am not going to support the motion to allow a

distillery in this zone.” In June, the Planning Commission approved the request to allow distilleries in the district, by a 3-2 vote, with two members absent. Commissioners and residents who opposed distilleries cited the proximity to the Boys & Girls Club and nearby homes, and a lack of parking. Liquor stores, wineries and breweries are already allowed in different parts of village by-right, meaning without special approval by the City Council. District 6 — where the distilleries were proposed — is currently dominated by car-oriented businesses, like a towing company and an auto-body shop, and self-storage. Wineries are already allowed in the district and in the adjacent village area stretching east to Madison Street. Cori Schumacher said she had a problem with the process of how wineries and breweries were first allowed in the village, and that a distillery is a manufacturing operation that belongs in an industrial area. Councilman Michael Schumacher said he didn’t see there were many issues between existing bars and restaurants and the nearby Boys & Girls Club, and said he agrees the council needs to approve new uses as the downtown “matures.”

Cap and trade shows the California difference California focus By Thomas D. Elias

You better hold on to your wallet By Marie Waldron

As your Assemblywoman, I oppose tax increases, which is why I voted against extending cap and trade, a huge regressive tax on the working men and women of this state. Though cap-and-trade fees generate billions for California’s general fund, there is little evidence of any positive environmental impact. Under the program, caps are placed on greenhouse gas emissions by industries, such as oil refineries and energy producers, which pay fees on emissions that exceed those caps. Though the intent is to create incentives for industry to invest in new and cleaner technologies, the fees are usually passed through, largely removing the incentives by forcing

Letter to the Editor Highest standard? Many public stakeholders in Escondido observe a number of 'myths' are contained in City of Escondido’s website. For example, the “myth du jour” features a description among city manager duties: “Ensure City services are performed to highest standard, in accordance with Council goals and policies." Despite online assurance contained in City of Escondido's website that the city manager's duty ensures city services are performed to highest standard, public stakeholders observed Mayor Sam Abed directed city staff to do otherwise during his tenure as mayor.   During 2014, the County of San Diego adopted updated stormwater discharge regulations for the county, but Abed specifically directed Public Works to apply only the bare minimum level of compliance necessary in City of Escondido. By doing so, Abed set a lesser standard, which reduces Escondido’s capability to control wastewater discharge, apply best practices to minimize potential adverse wastewater impacts and maximize economic benefits.

consumers to pay the additional costs. Like the recent gas tax increase and extensive changes to the Board of Equalization, last week’s cap-and-trade vote to extend the program’s expiration date from 2020 to 2030 was rushed through with little debate or input from those most affected, including California’s small businesses. Large enterprises can increase their products’ costs to cover the fees, but smaller companies aren’t able to cope as easily. For example, cap-and-trade fees may eventually increase gasoline prices as much as 90 cents per gallon, literally driving up the cost of everything, including shipping costs and fuel surcharges on the goods we purchase. These costs will

be added to the 12 - 20 cent per gallon gas/diesel tax going into effect this November. On the other hand, smaller businesses will see out-of-state and foreign competitors that don’t have to worry about cap and trade undercut their prices, forcing them into bankruptcy or out of California. Regrettably, California’s small businesses and its hardworking taxpayers, many with the least ability to pay, will be saddled with years of massive tax increases as a result of last week’s cap-and-trade vote. Assemblymember Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes Escondido, San Marcos and Vista.

Over-prescribing opioids a prescripton for disaster all the drug-lord jobs overseas. Village Idiot ping If only constipation By Jim Mullen

The most fascinating commercial on television right now is the one for a medicine that will cure “opioid-induced constipation.” I have to wonder if there could be any other possible way to cure opioid-induced constipation. If you said, “Stop taking opioids,” boy-oh-boy would you be practicing medicine without a license! Some big pharmaceutical company probably spent half a billion dollars getting this latest wonder drug approved by the FDA, and you want to step on their profits? What are you, a communist? Of course, practicing medicine WITH a license is where all the opioids are coming from in the first place. No one needs to smuggle these pills into the country. They are being over-prescribed by doctors right here at home. At least we’ve stopped ship-

were the worst side effect of opioids. While I’ve seen the one about opioid-induced constipation, I must have missed the commercial that ends with, “Ask your doctor if being addicted to opioids is right for you.” After all, there's a 50/50 chance he’s the one who got you hooked in the first place. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that “opioids (including prescription opioids and heroin) killed more than 33,000 people in 2015, more than any year on record. Nearly half of all opioid overdose deaths involve a prescription.” Funny, they didn’t even mention the constipation.

No other state has a cap-and-trade system anything like California’s for limiting and, in the long run, vastly reducing production of greenhouse gases behind climate change. In fact, the chairmen of every key congressional committee and subcommittee on the environment where this issue is heard are all long-term climate change deniers, best exemplified by Oklahoma’s Republican Sen. James Inhofe, who once said his granddaughter was “brainwashed” when she asked him about the issue. He heads the Senate’s Committee on Environment and Public Works, a job once held by retired California Democrat Barbara Boxer. That’s just one way California is different from most of the rest of America, especially the wide swath of “red” states stretching from the Rocky Mountains east to the crest of the Appalachians. But the mid-July vote in which California legislators overwhelmingly extended the cap-and-trade program until at least 2030 exemplifies why almost one-third (32 percent) of Californians said in a springtime poll that they’re at least somewhat interested in seceding from the Union. On that issue, votes in both houses of the Legislature exceeded the twothirds supermajority needed to prevent threatened future lawsuits claiming cap-and-trade is a tax, not a fee. It takes that large a margin to pass a new tax, meaning this doesn’t happen very often. But it did this time,

You can have it. You want a government that thinks like you? You can have it. In California, we just had a Senate race where only Democrats ran. You’ll have your own presidential races where the choice is between one conservative Republican and another even more conservative Republican. Good for you. You want no environmental restrictions? You can have it. We’ll shed a tear when you start open-pit mining in Yellowstone, but we won’t do a thing to stop you. You want to establish an Evangelical state religion? We won’t have any say in what you do anymore.” That’s putting it pretty strongly, but it represents a little bit of the frustration some Californians felt when several small states imposed their political will last year via the Electoral College. “Think about his for a minute,” the essay continues, “You won’t have us always butting in with our political correctness… And don’t worry about losing us. You don’t need us. You’ve got the oil and the gas and the amber waves of grain. You can build pipelines … you can drill offshore.” That may be a very fanciful vision, but there’s little doubt about how different California is from most of the rest of America. The secessionists are merely saying they’d like to formalize that reality. Email Thomas Elias at tdelias@aol.com.

and seven Republicans who voted for the extension were critical to its getting 55 votes in the Assembly, where 54 out of 80 were needed. There was also a single Republican vote for cap-and-trade in the state Senate, where 27 of 40 votes were needed and the extension actually got 28. The GOP votes were vital because a few Assembly Democrats defected to the “no” side. Those eight Republicans made up more than 20 percent of the GOP’s legislative membership; a vote like that to fight climate change could never draw nearly so much Republican support in any other state these days. But this is only one area where California is vastly different from most of America. Some other fields where polls and election results show most Californians want policies at variance with those of the Trump Administration and much of Middle America: gun control, sanctuary policies for at least some undocumented immigrants and strong voting rights, to name just three. In that light, some are seeing the cap-and-trade vote as more than just an extension of a unique state policy. They see it as something like the first salvo in their wished-for divorce proceeding from the Union. This is nowhere better expressed than in an open-letter essay in the new journal Grizzly, published by the nascent California National Party, whose purpose is a push for independence. “You can do whatever you want,” the essay says to the rest of America. “You want a country where everyone looks like you?

Encinitas latest to face election demand

By Christina Macone-Greene

By Aaron Burgin

ENCINITAS — Encinitas has become the latest target in a series of demands for North County cities to abandon citywide elections in favor of electing council members by district. And if history is any indication, Encinitas will be the latest city to begrudgingly make the electoral change. The city received a legal demand letter from the law firm Shenkman & Hughes, the same firm that has targeted San Marcos, Oceanside, Vista and Carlsbad in recent months. Attorney Kevin Shenkman, in the letter dated July 14, asks the city to voluntarily change its citywide election system or face litigation. Shenkman argues that the citywide voting violates the California Voting Rights Act because it dilutes the voting power of the city’s Hispanic residents — who comprise 13.7 percent of the city’s 63,000 population. Shenkman’s firm, which represents a voting rights organization for Latinos, made similar demands in the four aforementioned cities. In each case, the city chose voluntarily to create districts for future elections — including at least one district whose population has a Hispanic majority — as opposed to fight them in court. Escondido was the first North County city to make the change in 2013. All of the cities chose the voluntary path because no city has ever prevailed in a lawsuit challenging a city’s at-large elections since the state Legislature passed its updated Voting Rights Act in 2002. Palmdale in Los Angeles County challenged Shenkman’s firm in 2012 and lost a jury trial, costing the city millions in the process. As proof of this disparity in Encinitas, Shenkman’s letter states that Encinitas has never had a Hispanic elected official and that historically, the city’s first mayor in 1986, Marjorie Gaines, was hostile toward Hispanic immigrants. Encinitas, however, has elected at least two council members of Hispanic heritage: Mary Lou “Lou” Aspell, who served a single term from 1994 to 1998, and Teresa Arballo Barth, who served eight years on the council from 2006 to 2014. Aspell, reached this week, said she doesn’t support the concept of cities like Encinitas voting their elected officials by district because it creates divisions and doesn’t guarantee the best candidates will be elected. Aspell also questioned whether the district system would be effective getting more Hispanics elected to the council, given the city’s smaller Hispanic population than its neighboring cities.

Teen bikes across state to raise money for Police Officer Memorial Foundation By Promise Yee

REGION — On July 7, 16-year-old Travis Risley set out on a bike ride across California to raise money for the Police Officer Memorial Foundation. “I felt that it was my time to give back to the community,” Risley said. “All of the money that I raise will go to the families of fallen peace officers.” The charity is close to Risley’s heart. His father has served as a Napa police officer for 27 years. “I chose this foundation because of my dad,” Risley said. “There have been times that I stayed up at night, wondering if he would come home.” The idea to raise funds for the Police Officer Memorial Foundation with a state bike ride began to take shape in December 2016. Risley wanted a challenge, and after checking the journey would be 1,000 miles, committed himself to it. Risley has been cycling for two years, and had never been on a multi-day bike tour prior to his state ride. To prepare for the journey he rode an average of 45 miles, three times a week.

“I tried to ride three to four times a week for as long as I could, which would be anywhere between 15 miles with a lot of climbing or 75 miles when I had more time,” Risley said. His selfless efforts touched a lot of people. “So far, we have raised about $20,000 in donations,” Risley said. Risley was supported on his ride by a crew of two, his mom and dad. His dad, Dan Risley, served as the ride manager. “My dad’s job was to make sure I was safe, stay in contact with me via twoway radios, give me directions and answer any phone calls that he got about the upcoming days of the ride,” Risley said. A few days into the ride his mom, Andi, joined them and lent a hand with directions and social media posts. Days began at 5:30 a.m. Charged electronics were unplugged, Risley readied himself for the ride, the follow van was loaded, and pedaling began by 7:15 a.m. Risely rode for five hours each day. At the end of each day’s ride he was greeted by well-wishers

Botanic Garden gets approval for new space ENCINITAS — The San Diego Botanic Garden recently the final approval it needed to proceed with construction of its long-awaited education pavilion.

Most of his days riding were solo. “It is uncommon for people to hang around (and ride) with me,” Risley said. “I try not to sound cocky, but I am usually faster than everyone else.” Risley began his journey from the Oregon/California border in Brookings, Oregon, with a one-car Highway Patrol escort for the first 50 miles. The first day he pedaled 98 miles, the longest distance in his trip. Kinks in the routine were worked out the first day. The trip ran smoothly as he made his way to McKinleyville, Myers Flat, Hales Grove, Manchester, Valley Ford, Napa, Pacifica, Aptos, Greenfield, Paso Robles, Orcutt, Santa Barbara, Malibu, Newport Beach, La Jolla on July 23, and the California/Mexico border at San Ysidro on July 24. Humble through it all, at the end of his journey Risley said he hopes to have a few days to relax before heading home and beginning his fall classes.

RESIDENCY CONTINUED FROM A1

City staff said that a full repeal was the prudent step to take. “Mindful of the growing data from the State and experts in the field suggesting that sex offender residency restrictions could have the unintended consequence of threatening public safety in our community, as well as careful evaluation of the recent case law decisions which raise questions regarding the City’s authority to enforce blanket residency restrictions, it is recommended that the proposed Ordinance be adopted to repeal SMMC Chapter 10.44 in its entirety,” City Attorney Helen Holmes Peak wrote in a staff report. The City Council must vote on a second reading in August before the repeal takes effect.

VISTA — The Psychiatric Emergency Response Team, also referred to as PERT, visited the Vista Community Safety Commission at its July 13 meeting to provide information about their program. PERT is a psychiatric team of licensed clinicians who offer its services and partnership to law enforcement in San Diego County. In existence for 21 years, PERT was first established as a pilot project out of the San Diego Police Western Division in 1996. In 2017, the greatest complaint PERT receives from its law enforcement partners is that there are not enough clinicians, said Marla Kingkade, law enforcement liaison and community outreach coordinator for PERT. “Today, we are funded for 51 clinicians countywide,” Kingkade said. “We provide clinicians to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department including the Vista station, San Diego Police Department, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Escondido, La Mesa, El Cajon, National City, Chula Vista, Coronado and Harbor PD.” PERT is also available when requested by other agencies such as the Highway Patrol, San Diego School Police Department and San Diego County Probation Department. Kingkade explained that PERT utilizes its clinicians who are assigned to a particular station. She confirmed that the Vista station has two fulltime clinicians. “Our first clinician works Sunday through Wednesday and our second clinician works Wednesday through Saturday providing the Vista Sheriff’s Department with seven days a week coverage,” she said.

In addition to a PERT uniform, Kingkade shared that clinicians must also wear bullet resistant vests and carry police radios for safety measures. They also take part in the daily law enforcement briefings. Kingkade was quick to point out that PERT is not law enforcement. “We absolutely and appropriately need to stay in our lane,” she said. “We don’t tell law enforcement how to do their job, but collectively, as partners, we’re going to work together. Our clinicians then get into that patrol car.” Clinicians are then integrated into patrol and teamed with an officer, and PERT responds to mental health calls that go through the law enforcement system via 9-1-1. Kingkade also cleared up the misperception of a 5150: Holding a person for further mental health evaluation. “Most people think that a PERT unit arrives and 100 percent of the time they’re detaining people against their will for further evaluation. Statistically, we only 5150, 50 percent of the time,” she said. Kingkade shared that half of the time, PERT can de-escalate the situation and connect a person to the appropriate level of services. Hospitals and the highest level of care may not be necessary. “There are so many levels that really can and should be accessed," she said. Kingkade called PERT a true partnership with the collaboration of law enforcement. During the city of Vista’s Community Safety Commission meeting, San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Glen Twyman shared that a high volume of law enforcement service calls was for those needing psychiatric assistance.

Oceanside named a state Cultural District By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — The California Arts Council recently named Oceanside as one of 14 state Cultural Districts. Cities were selected though an initial letter of intent, peer panel review, site visit and invitation finalist application. “Oceanside is an original, active and eclectic area abundant with cultural resources,” CJ Di Mento, Oceanside Public Library principal librarian, said. Before being officially selected the city was notified it was a semi-finalist, and two representatives from the California Arts Council conducted a site visit. The tour began with a stakeholders meeting of

leaders from Oceanside’s arts and cultural organizations. Then a walking tour of the proposed downtown Cultural District was given. Oceanside’s Cultural District is just under a square mile. Its northernmost point is Sportfisher Drive, its eastern boundary is Nevada Street, its southern boundary is Minnesota Avenue and its western boundary is the Oceanside Pier. The tour highlighted an area within the city that has a high concentration of cultural resources and activities, and serves as a location of numerous annual cultural events. Stops on the tour in-

cluded the Oceanside Public Library, California Surf Museum, the pier and beach amphitheater, Local Tap House restaurant and bar, Linksoul workspace and gallery, MainStreet Oceanside, Star Theatre, Artist Alley and The Arcade tattoo shop. Beyond being recognized as a California Cultural District, Oceanside will be able to use the state Cultural District brand and logo in its marketing for five years. The city has partnered with Visit California and Caltrans for statewide marketing and resource support. The California Arts Council will also provide

the city technical assistance through an annual convening session and peer learning opportunities. Additionally, the city will receive an annual $5,000 stipend for two years to support its participation in the Cultural District program. “The community is excited and validated by this designation, and will continue to work hard to create and support cultural assets in Oceanside,” Di Mento said. Oceanside Cultural District partners are the city of Oceanside, represented by the Oceanside Public Library and advised by the Oceanside Arts

Local office offers low-cost hair restoration OCEANSIDE — If every business operated on the same principles as MyHairTransplantMD, gone would be the days of vague and misleading online pricing. You would never be hit with hidden fees and unrealistic promises would be obsolete. And once you’ve made the decision to go forward with the hair restoration you’ve been considering, Daniel J. Wagner, CEO at MyHairTransplantMD, assures you that you will know up front the entire cost and scope of the process to give you the head of hair you desire. The MyHairTransplantMD website offers clear information about the consultation and even the price. “My goal is for people to be able to make informed decisions and have realistic expectations about their hair restoration op-

tions,” Wagner said. But his decision to be completely transparent with potential clients has come with some criticism. “Our competitors don’t lay everything out for people the way that we do,” he said. “I’ve been criticized for having all of the information on our website. I’ve been told I should leave something to the imagina-

tion. But I don’t want to do it that way. I want people to see what we do, how we do it and how much it will cost them.” Another frequent tactic of other offices that offer hair restoration is to lead clients to believe that a full head of hair can be achieved in one procedure. “When a client is looking

to restore an area that used to have 20,000 hairs, there are limitations to what we can do in one visit,” Wagner said. “We often have people come in telling us that the guy down the street said they could get their hair back in just one visit. What I tell people is that if you lost your hair gradually, we are going to restore it

gradually. We will only do as much as is medically safe to deliver the results you want.” He added that his team always informs clients exactly what it will take to fully restore their hair. “If you have no hair, you didn’t lose it overnight,” Wagner said. “It’s not possible to come in today and leave with a full head of hair. The hairs are so close together, it’s a gradual process. For those clients looking to add to thinning hair, the process involves increasing the density. “As you lose your hair, we add it,” Wagner said. MyHairTransplantMD does not mislead clients by quoting less than it would take for the results clients are looking for. “We take the measurements, tell clients, ‘This is what it’s going to take to achieve the

results you want,” Wagner said. “We don’t intentionally mislead clients by underestimating what it’s going to take to reach their desired goal. We back it up based on hair science — which is math — not opinion.” “Our prices are competitive, and posted right on our website. We want to tell you honestly what it will take. And if you’re happy after one procedure, you are free to go on your way. We want you to know going in what it’s really going to take, but you don’t have to complete the entire plan.” MyHairTransplantMD is located at 2103 S. El Camino Real, Suite 201 in Oceanside. For a step-by-step guide to their consultation process and a complete explanation of pricing, call the office at (800) 262-2017 or visit their website at myhairtransplantmd.com.

With the world’s most enviable weather yearround, an abundance of outdoor recreational activities, world-class entertainment, fine dining options and miles of gorgeous Pacific beaches, it’s no wonder that Coastal San Diego residential real estate is booming.

There is no indication that the new high sales and average prices in San Diego beach communities are due to seasonal factors, rather values are climbing because of tight supply and high buyer demand for coastal living. Homeowners and sellers should be pleased to know that year-over-year average sale prices from June 2016 to June 2017 increased in the double digits in many communities including Carlsbad (92008), Solana Beach (92075), Oceanside (92056) and Encinitas (92024), according to MLS data.

Vista Way seen as ideal spot for new fire station By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — The Vista Fire Protection District continues its search for a potential new location for an additional fire station. Site studies by the Vista Fire Department indicate that the Vista Way corridor is an ideal locale. Over the last month, a realtor mailed out letters to specific properties along the Vista Way corridor, said Director Jerry Hill, who provided the Vista Fire Protection District board with a July meeting update. “The response has not been what we would like,” Hill said. “We had one response so far — a property on the corner of Gopher Canyon and Vista Way.” Hill, who is working on this project with Director Read Miller, deliberated on the low response rate. Miller was not in attendance at July meeting, but Hill provided the feedback. In their opinion, the realtor letterhead may have been a deterrent since recipients might have thought it was junk mail. “So, our thought is to resend the letter, tailor it a

little differently, coming from the district and on district stationery,” Hill said. Hill also pointed out the likelihood of residents opening the letter was higher if it came from the fire department versus a realtor. “So, with the board’s permission, we would like to resend out the letter on our letterhead and see what kind of response there is,” he said. The board wanted to know from Hill the goal of the letter. Hill said it was to inquire whether targeted property owners along the Vista Way corridor were interested in possibly selling their property to the district for the development of a fire station. While these mailing efforts were made in the past, the board commended Hill and Miller for their perseverance and decided to leave the decision to their discretion, while noting that the substantial record of attempts. “I’m not saying it (the new mailing) is going to get us anywhere, but at least we’re going to give it our best shot,” Hill said.

LIBRARY

CONTINUED FROM 1

Volunteers operate the Friends Book Shop, which raises funds to help support Escondido Library programs and materials. He and the Friends of the Library board are very interested in learning to what degree groups like Friends of the Library are involved or if they exist at all at libraries managed by Library Systems & Services, LLC. “I asked the question, ‘What happens to these groups?’ The answer was not quite clear,” Cameron said. Virginia Abushanab is a 20-year volunteer at the Escondido Library. She was surprised to learn that the city was exploring outsourcing the library’s ser-

vices to a private company. According to Abushanab, volunteers already save the library money. “The Friends Book Shop, run entirely by volunteers, earned $72,000 last year, all of it given right back to the library,” she said. Abushanab believes that the library may lose volunteer support if the city decides to outsource services. “I doubt that any of these volunteers are going to continue working for free, knowing that the value goes to a profit-making company,” Abushanab said. In 2016, 220 library volunteers gave 29,000 hours, according to Cynthia Smith, interim director of library and community services. The 29,000

$10 per hour, this is a value of $290,000. “We love our volunteers,” Smith said. “They help our daily operations by providing services to the community.” Escondido resident Shelley Spisak wondered if outsourcing library services would also reduce donations and community support for building a new library in Escondido, something the City Council supports. “I do worry that people will be less likely to want to donate money and time to get a new library up and running when they know that any financial benefit is going to go to a for-profit company instead of staying in the community,” Spisak said. Spisak attended the July 11 meeting because she has great affection for the Escondido public library. “I took my three kids there all the time when they were growing up — youngest just graduated high school, and they all three are big readers,” she said. She feels that out-

sourcing would be the wrong move because the benefits are unclear and the community is opposed to it. “The job of the City Council is to listen to the voice of the community, and the community has spoken, loud and clear,” Spisak said. Escondido City Councilwoman Olga Diaz is listening. Diaz said she believes that the public has a right to participate in discussions and exploration of ideas that affect city operations. “The library is especially important to our community and any changes would be a matter of public concern,” she said. She has been vocal about her opposition to outsourcing library services. “The library budget represents only 3% of our entire general fund budget. Significant savings can be found elsewhere,” according to an Op Ed piece authored by Diaz, that appeared in the Escondido Times Advocate. The City Council’s vision for a new library is dependent on taxpayer support of a large library bond. Diaz questioned how tax payers are supposed to support such a measure if the City Council majority cannot see the value of operating a public library. The city has produced a fact sheet about the issue of outsourcing library services that can be found on its website at www.escondido.org. According to the fact sheet, next steps include a cost comparison analysis performed by city staff. If substantial savings could be achieved, site visits to libraries that utilize Library Systems & Services, LLC may be conducted. If substantial savings could be achieved, a public comment period will be held to gain insight from the Escondido community.

District elections move forward in split vote By Promise Yee

T he C oast News - I nland E dition

OCEANSIDE — City Council voted 3-1 to introduce the “communities of interests” district map and election calendar, which sets districts 1 and 2 as first for election. Councilman Jack Feller cast the no vote. Mayor Jim Wood was absent from the July 25 special meeting. Feller voiced his objections to district-based elections, which require City Council candidates, except the mayor, to live within the district they represent and only allow votes by residents of that district. “I'm losing three-quarters of my voting right,” Feller said. “It hasn’t been easy for any of us, (running for City Council) I don’t think we should be making it any easier.” A handful of residents made comments prior to council’s vote. Most said there was not enough information for residents to provide full feedback on proposed district maps prior to the final selection. Frustration was expressed over having to wait until the next official census count in 2020 to fine-tune district boundaries. One speaker said the districting process “had to get done” and praised city staff and consultants for moving the task along and avoiding the pending lawsuit, which claims that current at-large elections do not ensure equal representation. Going forward seated council members will continue to serve at-large until their district of residence has elections. Districts 1 and 2, which are comprised of the northwest and northeast communities of Oceanside, will hold council mem-

ber elections in November 2018. Districts 3 and 4, which contain the city’s southwest and southeast communities, will hold elections in November 2020. If a council seat becomes vacant prior to revised election dates a council appointment can be made or an at-large special election held to fill the seat. Following the meeting Feller said he is not in favor of election rules that help underfunded candidates. He added that Oceanside has had Hispanic, black and women council members. “Oceanside has had a lot of diversity,” Feller said of the city’s elected offices. After the meeting Councilwoman Esther Sanchez said district-based elections will provide a better democracy and greater government transparency. “We’ll see more responsiveness to communities,” Sanchez said. The process to form districts began in May and included five public outreach meetings to create and discuss district maps, and four public hearings to review and adopt the final map and election calendar. Criteria for city districts includes equal population, a contiguous territory, visible features and boundaries and representation of communities of interest. Three community-drawn district maps were brought to City Council on June 21, and the communities of interest map was unanimously selected. City Council will meet to adopt the selected district map and election calendar at a special meeting Aug. 1.

German Shepherd Rescue provides hope By Rebecca Sykes

SAN MARCOS — Morning commuters heading to the 78 might not realize that the people walking more than a dozen German shepherds by California State University San Marcos and the shopping center across the street are volunteers for a rescue group. “Sometimes people ask if there is a German shepherd parade going on,” said Denise von Muhlen, a volunteer since 2009. The Coastal German Shepherd Rescue of San Diego started as a chapter from Coastal German Rescue in Orange County in 2008. Teresa Baltao was the founder of the San Diego chapter and was the director until earlier this year. San Marcos Kennel on Twin Oaks Valley Road boards the rescue group’s dogs and the volunteers walk the dogs. There are more than 40 active volunteers, according to the group. Volunteers tend to carry the rescue’s business cards since there are always curious people who stop their cars to ask about the dogs being walked. “When I walk the dogs, I always make sure to smile at people looking at the dogs I walk, hopefully inviting them to come say hello and ask questions about them,” said volunteer Wendy Lynn. Lynn started a couple months ago volunteering with the rescue group and is in love with all the dogs there, especially the older ones. “I have such hope that people adopt and do not shop at puppy mill stores,” Lynn said. “These dogs deserve a loving

home, especially the older dogs who tend to not get adopted compared to puppies. But we all have hope that the veteran dogs will find a forever home.” The dogs that are up for adoption tend to be abandoned rescues from Southern California shelters. Also, the rescue takes in dogs from families who can no longer care for their German shepherd dogs and are open for requests from different animal welfare organizations. “The most important criteria we have when evaluating a candidate to join our organization is that the dog should be adoptable. We do rescue dogs with medical and behavioral issues that can be addressed,” von Muhlen said. “Our mission

is to rehabilitate and find loving homes for all our beloved dogs.” San Marcos resident Dillon Price started volunteering with the rescue group a month ago out of curiosity about the people walking the German shepherds. “I attend Palomar and every morning, I drive past CSUSM, I would always see people walking German shepherds,” Price said. “I was so curious as to why there were all these people walking those dogs. I decided to call the (San Marcos) Kennel, where I saw the dogs coming out and found out there was a rescue boarding dogs there.” Price decided he wanted to volunteer and has loved it. “It has been so rewarding walking these dogs that need homes,” he said. “However, it has been difficult hearing some of the stories as to why they are here.” Von Muhlen stated many people who adopt have unrealistic expectations about a dog they purchased or adopted as a puppy. Some owners tend to get bored when the dog grows up or the puppy is too much work. “It’s very sad when a dog is turned into the rescue,” she said. “However, I’d rather focus on the new loving home we are going to work hard to find for each dog than in the sad example of a human being who abandoned the dog.” Adoption events happen on Saturdays in Del Mar at various locations. It is rare for the group to have an event without at least one adoption. If interested in adopting a German shepherd or volunteering with the rescue group, visit Coastalgsrsd.org.

Video game tournament adds to fun of annual Supergirl Pro By Promise Yee

Tia Blanco from North County is the 2015 and 2016 ISA Women’s Gold medalist. File photo

A local to watch this weekend By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — North County surfer and 2015 and 2016 ISA Women’s Gold medalist Tia Blanco is one to watch in the upcoming Supergirl Pro, which is set to take place at Oceanside Pier from July 28 to July 30. The Paul Mitchell Neon Supergirl Pro is hailed as the largest all-women surf contest and draws 120 competitors including the world’s best female surfers. The contest marks its sixth year as a World Surf League (WSL) Women’s Qualifying Series event, and has been held for 10 years. Blanco said she is looking forward to the competition and an opportunity to turn around her slow start this year. She has surfed the Supergirl Pro event since its inception, and considers Oceanside her home turf. The 20 year old was born in Puerto Rico and raised in San Diego County and South Orange County. In 2006 she moved to Hawaii. She started competing professionally in 2008, and has always loved the sport. “I started surfing at the age of 3 and starting competition at 13,” Blanco said. “I love surfing because it is a fun way to express myself.” Blanco moved to Carlsbad in 2010 and has since called North County home. “It’s refreshing to know that I will be competing in a familiar environment close to my friends and family,” Blanco said. “I haven’t really found my momentum this year. I am hoping with this event I can get a good result and finish the year strong.” To ready for competi-

tion Blanco has been surfing, training at Neutrility, eating clean and practicing yoga. It’s all about a healthy lifestyle. Her Facebook page shares that she is vegan and supports several charities including homeless shelters for women and children. “I try to be as authentic as possible and promote ideas and lifestyles that I wholeheartedly believe in,” Blanco said. “It’s all about helping people and making a difference.” Other competitors to hit the water this weekend who share the title of the world’s best include three-time WSL Champion Carissa Moore, of Oahu, Hawaii; two-time Championship Tour runner-up Courtney Conlogue, of Santa Ana, California; and last year’s Supergirl Pro winner Coco Ho, of Hawaii. “Sixteen of the top 20 women surfers in the world are competing so there are many stars of the sport attending,” Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment, said. In addition to providing an opportunity for surfers to gain qualifying points, the contest gives everyone competing the experience of surfing against world champions. Surfing alongside the best fuels Blanco. “I love watching all the women surfing to their full potential and pushing one another to surf better,” Blanco said. Conditions over the three-day competition are expected to be good. “I think we will be fortunate enough to surf in some fun hurricane swell,”

Blanco said. Blanco’s first heat is Round 72, which is set to run from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. July 28. All Saturday and Sunday heats promise to provide great match-ups. “Since 44 of the top 50 ranked surfers are competing, virtually every heat on Saturday and Sunday features an incredible matchup,” Bratman said. “The true can’t-miss heats are the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.” Blanco will also have two signing sessions with fans during the weekend at the Supergirl Pro Festival Village. For exact times see her Instagram account @ tiablanco. Additionally, the Festival Village features 20 live concerts, an all-female DJ competition, a women’s skateboarding competition, the Supergirl Gamer Pro esports tournament, hair styling by Paul Mitchell, a food court, a beverage garden and more than 50 vendor booths.

OCEANSIDE — True to tradition, the 11th annual Supergirl Pro will bring as much action to the beach as it does to the water. This year an onsite women’s video game tournament will be held with cash prizes and products for top individual and team players. Winners will also claim the crown as the first ever Supergirl Gamer Pro champions. The Supergirl Pro event strives to provide opportunities for women in traditionally male-dominated arenas. “Esports is the perfect example of an industry where women are unnecessarily treated like second-class citizens despite a huge percentage of the gender that considers themselves avid gamers,” Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment and producer of the Supergirl Pro, said. Bratman says 46 percent of gamers are women, yet only 1 percent are included in esports tournaments. The Supergirl Gamer Pro is a platform for female gamers to take a larger role in esports, and inspire other women. “Our mission is to encourage the empowerment and participation of more women in competitive gaming and to help facilitate a future where women and men have equal opportunities within esports,” Bratman said. Tournament pre-qualifications began online with 32 “Hearthstone” players, and 16 “League of Legends” teams battling it out in head-to-head competition.

The “Hearthstone” quarterfinals, semifinals and finals, for individual players, will be played onsite at the Supergirl Pro on July 30, and broadcast live on Twitch.tv. The semifinals and finals of the “League of Legends,” for teams of five, will be played onsite at the Supergirl Pro on July 29, and also broadcast live on Twitch.tv. The tournament is played in head-to-head bracket-style, with games usually lasting an hour. “Given the family-friendly environment of the event’s festival, we also wanted games

that were both PG-13 and recognizable,” Bratman said. “’Hearthstone’ was selected as the one-versus-one game in consultation with Blizzard, and “League of Legends” was a no-brainer for the team game.”

Vista Fire Department on track with weed abatement notices By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Weed abatement remains a top issue for San Diego County, including the city of Vista. At a Vista Fire Protection District meeting in July, Fire Inspector Mike McFadden told directors that it was a busy month for weed abatement notices. According to McFadden, some longtime residents were shocked to receive those notices. Due to the heavy rains, additional parcels required abatement and this netted the attention of fire inspectors. McFadden said his department was fielding

numerous calls as well as letters. He also described visiting with residents as a unique opportunity for more educational dialogue. “It’s not uncommon for me to be in front of somebody talking to them and then have two neighbors come out,” McFadden said. “So that affords me the opportunity to spread the district message as to what we’re about, provide handouts to them, offer to look at their parcels right then and there, and give them ideas on how they can harden their stance against wildfires. So, it’s

been very fruitful compared to the first quarter of this calendar year.” Current fires burning within the state have raised fire awareness — residents are clearing their parcels. “I’m sure the rest of you have seen there’s a whole lot of work that your constituents have been doing,” he said. “It looks very good at this point. I’m pleased with what we’re seeing.” During the meeting, McFadden showed some before and after weed abatement slides of Vista parcels.

Fadden said. “It’s a free download, and you can have it on your phone. It’s a great website, and Director Miller was absolutely correct.” McFadden explained that he shared this information with the city of Vista’s communications director. Another item mentioned, which was also suggested by Director Miller, was Pulse Point Automated External Defibrillator (AED). PulsePoint.org offers a registry and ability to update AEDs’ locations in the event someone has a cardiac arrest and re-

McFadden also pointed out that at the previous district meeting, Director Read Miller mentioned the Cal Fire website. McFadden shared that Miller was correct in that the site provided users with great information such as notification of a nearby fire, the location of fires within the state and other resources. All data is in real time. Other helpful areas on the site included evacuation plans, emergency supply checklists, defensible space and more. “It’s all the good stuff that we’re out there preaching every day,” Mc-

Safety commission discusses domestic violence calls By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — A new member of the city of Vista’s Community Safety Commission, Marvin Mizell, wanted a brief rundown on the top calls to law enforcement at the monthly meeting July 13. On hand was San Diego County sheriff’s Sgt. Glen Twyman, who asked whether Mizell was referring to calls for crimes against people or property. Mizell asked for both. “I would say that a lot of our calls are domestic violence,” Twyman said. Twyman said many calls were about arguments and fighting which could potentially lead to or had led to an injury. “I would say that’s probably the number one call overall,” he said. A high number of calls are also for those needing psychiatric assistance. Twyman explained that those calls stem from a range of

concerns including depression and psychological issues, to medications not being properly administered and self-medication situations. “There’s a wide range,” he said. According to Twyman, the city has two Psychiatric Emergency Response Teams, which consist of a licensed clinician and trained deputy for this specialty area. The team responds to calls together and implements the best solution(s) based on the resources available. “We also do have a tremendous amount of nuisance calls, from loud parties on weekends to fights,” said Twyman, reminding the Community Safety Commission that he did not have the most recent stats available for specifics. “But I would say domestic violence is probably the leading call on the range that encompasses a lot of these calls.”

SAN MARCOS — Palomar College has hired its dean of social and behavioral sciences as its new vice president of instructional services. Jack Kahn, who was hired by the college district in 2013, was recently named the college's assistant superintendent and vice president of instructional services. Kahn succeeded Interim Assistant Superintendent/Vice President Dan Sourbeer, who retired after 25 years at Palomar, where he served as professor and Dean, Division of Mathematics and the Natural and Health Sciences. “I am very excited to be working with Jack in his new role at Palomar,” Palomar Superintendent/President Dr. Joi Lin Blake said. “His enthusiasm, experience and background are a great mix to help us serve our 21st century students during these transformational times.” Kahn as dean worked with faculty and staff on several initiatives including enrollment management, the development of the “My Class Finder” tool and the Academic Spotlight online site, and a revamp of the college website, among other accomplishments. He also helped develop the Ramona High School Partnership, and took on a key role of support and leadership for the biannual Tarde de Familia event, and the undocumented student support committee and the Association for Latinos & Allies for Student Success (ALASS). Prior to working at Palomar, Kahn served as the Program Director and Professor of Clinical Psychology for two years at the California School of Professional Psychology, Alliant University. He was also chair and professor for 13 years at Curry College, a liberal arts institution in Milton, Massachusetts. Kahn holds a doctorate in Counseling Psychology from State University of New York, Buffalo.

she got out, she was fine." -- In Green Bay, Wisconsin, a driver crossing the Walnut Street Bridge on June 22 disregarded the traffic arm and drove around it onto the drawbridge as it was opening. His van ascended the opening span, but then rolled back down into the gap between the stationary bridge and the moveable span. Green Bay Metro firefighters, concerned that the van might slip through the gap, cut a hole in its roof to rescue the driver. Suspicions Confirmed Karen Leclair, 51, of Albion, Pennsylvania, was reported missing on June 11 by her commercial fisherman husband, Christopher, 48, after she went over the side of his boat on Lake Erie. Christopher told police he hadn't been watching when his wife fell overboard. When her body washed ashore on July 4 in upstate New York, however, she had a gunshot wound in her head, and she was bound by nylon fishing rope and weighted with an anchor. Christopher was charged with her murder after the gun used to shoot Karen was found under a bed in their home. Oh, THOSE Monkeys A monkey mystery unfolded near Mesa, Arizona, in early July as drone owner Jesse Sorensan dispatched his device over a facility rumored to house abandoned monkeys. "Hovered above it and took some pictures ... and sure enough there's monkeys in almost all the cages," said Sorensan. "What are these monkeys doing ... in the middle of the desert?" Local TV reporters looked into the mystery and found the facility is used for research and breeding for the University of Washington and the Centers for Disease Control, who were quick to point out that the monkeys have access to air conditioning and veterinary care.

called in the Royal Thai Police Force to help rid them of an evil female spirit, "phi pob," they accuse of killing four cows and sickening four border police officers, reported the BBC in June. In Thai folklore, phi pob can possess people and sow chaos, including a 2016 incident in which neighbors were forced to strip naked at gunpoint by three reportedly possessed individuals. Adul Chaitprasithkul, the local police chief, noted, "More people believe in phi pob than those who don't." Pre-existing Conditions Police in Dearborn, Michigan, are hoping a thief's unusual loot may draw him back to the scene of the crime. Surveillance video at a Walgreens store captured a bald man making off with seven boxes of Rogaine, a hair-growth product, on June 22. "While this is not the most hair-raising crime ... it is suspected he will continue committing this type of crime, as 12 to 14 months of consistent use is needed to see results," Police Chief Ronald Haddad said in a news release.

Precocious Residents of Baraboo, Wisconsin, must have done a double-take when they looked outside during the early hours of June 30. Kelly, a full-grown elephant, had escaped from the Circus World Museum nearby and wandered the neighborhood, munching on marigolds. Apparently, her partner, Isla (also an elephant), had used her trunk to free Kelly from a restraint. A trainer from Circus World was summoned, and Kelly was returned to her home at the museum.

Why Aren’t My Hands and Fingers Working Quite Right? Grant Seiden, MD, Hand Surgery

Summer has arrived, and brought with it all the fun, work, and activities that keep us moving and motivated. From doing small crafts to home improvement projects, we all depend on our hands to interact with the people and world around us. Our hands allow us to swing a hammer, paddle in the ocean, dig in the sand, or delicately thread a needle. Most of the time our hands are up to the task and ready to take on just about anything we get ourselves into, but on occasion something just isn’t quite right, which can be quite a nuisance to our busy schedules. As a hand doctor, I enjoy the intricacies of the hand and everything that normally allows such seamless and wonderful motion and function. 27 bones, and the nerves, tendons, and blood vessels that go with them in each hand work together as a compact mechanical masterpiece. However, I have also witnessed occasions when something in this delicate system goes slightly awry, and seen how much it can impact patient’s lives, work, and play. As the sun heats up and the barbeques and beach days roll on, here are some of the most common correctable issues I see and my advice for getting you back to your busy summer schedule. The “Jammed” or Cut Finger We have all jammed a finger, but not every “jam” will go away on its own. Some “jams” are actually fractures or tendon injuries which shouldn’t be ignored. Similarly, a slippery avocado seed can re-direct a sharp kitchen knife and lead to a cut on a finger, sometimes injuring the tendons right beneath the skin even if the cut in the skin is very small. Here are some basic things to look out for: if you can’t straighten or bend a joint normally, if a joint swells and bruises, or if you suspect a cut was deeper than just the skin, you should get checked out sooner rather than later. Hopefully it’s just a sprain, but it is something more serious, it’s better to get on the road to recovery sooner! The safest course

of action is to get checked. The Clicking or Locking Finger The tendons that bend our fingers work in a very special environment to allow so much motion and freedom- but sometimes that environment loses its balance. This can lead to a finger (or thumb!) that seems like it clicks, or might even get stuck in a bent position. The most common cause is called Stenosing Flexor Tenosynovitis, or Trigger Finger. If you wake up and your finger clicks, or you need to “unstick” it from your palm, you are not alone. Trigger finger typically affects the finger worse in the morning, and causes pain across the palm. Fortunately, there are excellent treatments that can make this go away! The Numb or Tingling Fingers Our fingers depend on good sensation, but some-

times that

sensation can turn to

numbness, tingling, or burning. This makes even simple tasks difficult - like buttoning a shirt, or even holding a cup of coffee. Sometimes major nerves to the hands and fingers can become compressed, which causes this change in sensation, and can also lead to pain. Nerve compression is often worse at night and can disrupt sleep with pain, numbness, or fingers being “asleep” - not good for a busy schedule! The most common nerve compression is the median nerve as it crosses the wrist- a problem called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. If any of this sounds familiar, you aren’t alone – Carpal Tunnel is quite common, and fortunately excellent treatment options exist to take care of this problem as well. Hopefully your hands are keeping up with everything you have planned this summer! If any of these issues sound familiar for you or the ones you love, or any hand issue gets in the way of your plans, I would love to help! Wishing you all a safe and relaxing summer.

Cahill leaves behind local roots for greener pastures sports talk jay paris

T

he rebuilding Padres are wheeling and dealing and yes we’ve written that before. It’s midsummer, when the parking along the coast is tight and Padres are peddled before barely getting to know them. Then there is Trevor Cahill, the right-hander from right around here who resurrected his career. Cahill, an Oceanside native, was the Padres’ best starter, make that ex-Pa-

dre, and it was fun while it lasted. He nearly made it from February-to-August in a Padres uniform. Despite the brief stay, it’s cool he came home and suited up for the local nine. Trouble was Cahill was too good for what the Padres are doing. This is a year of player development and crossed fingers for the future. Winning takes a backseat to building for better days and yeah, we hope it all works out for the Padres’ brainiacs, too. Among the team’s big thinkers is A.J. Preller, the general manager from Encinitas. He figured discarding Cahill, along with Brandon Maurer and Ryan Buchter to the Kansas City Royals would help down the road.

So Cahill points his GPS toward the Midwest, grateful he hung around the team he grew up cheering. “I had a great time here,” said Cahill, a Vista High product. He leaves with his career on an upswing, which was all part of the grand plan when he signed with sunny San Diego. Cahill wanted to prove again that he could shine as a starter. But it was how the stars lined up that made Cahill come home. Knowing he would get a chance to throw the first pitch, and not work from the bullpen, was enticing to Cahill. So was the possibility that if he excelled he could get plopped into an exciting pennant race.

Kansas City, here he comes, and the Royals’ chances for an American League playoff spot just improved. That payoff is what Cahill had in mind. “Coming here I knew the team being where it is right now, that there was a chance some pieces would maybe get traded away,’’ said Cahill, who went 4-3 record and 3.69 ERA. “Just look at it as another team that’s in the playoff hunt.” He leaves behind Andy Green, the Padres manager, hunting for wins but understanding the long-term views of the front office. But Green stressed Cahill left a positive mark. “With Trevor it goes all the way back to Arizona,’’ Green said of their

Aztecs’ Long expects strong year from QB By Joe Naiman

SAN DIEGO — The duty of a football quarterback is to advance the ball regardless of whether he throws to a receiver, hands off to a ball carrier, or carries the ball himself. Carlsbad High School graduate Christian Chapman, who is now the firststring quarterback for San Diego State University, lacks the impressive passing statistics of many of his National Collegiate Athletic Association colleagues but led the Aztecs to an 11-3 season last year that included victories over Wyoming in the Mountain West Conference championship game and over Houston in the Las Vegas Bowl.

"I think he's developed into a better quarterback as he's played," San Diego State head coach Rocky Long said during the Aztecs' Media Day on July 20.

Chapman is currently a junior. Last year he completed 153 of his 251 passes for a total of 1,994 yards. Twenty of his passes were caught for touchdowns, and he only threw six interceptions. Although sacks and kneeldowns are subtracted from a quarterback's rushing yardage, Chapman's rushes for gains totaled 244 yards; his 71 attempts included 28 sacks. The Aztecs as a team rushed for 3,680 yards, and 34 of the Aztecs' 636 rushing attempts were for touchdowns. Donnel Pumphrey gained 2,133 yards and crossed the end zone 17 times, Rashaad Penny had 1,018 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground with an additional 224 yards and three touchdowns on 15 receptions, and when Juwan Washington filled in for the starters, he gained 441 rushing yards and scored six times on carries. The Philadelphia Eagles selected Pumphrey in the fourth round of this year's National Football League draft. This

year Penny is a senior and Washington is a sophomore. Long expects Penny to carry the ball approximately 30 times per game and anticipates Washington having the ball on 15 to 20 rushing plays each contest. Long noted that a successful running game will actually give Chapman more flexibility. "If we run the ball well enough, he'll have chances to make some big plays in the passing game," Long said. Oceanside High School graduate Mikah Holder and fellow senior Quest Truxton are San Diego State's first-string wide receivers. "We've got to have Mikah and Truxton start making some big plays in the passing game," Long said. The Aztecs begin play Sept. 2 at home against the University of California, Davis and follow the season opener with games Sept. 9 at Arizona State and Sept. 16 at home against Stanford. Mountain West Conference play for the Aztecs begins Sept. 23 at Air Force.

time together with the Diamondbacks. “And I’ve just seen the growth in him. You like watching people grow up and succeed.” That success comes from Cahill swapping his bread-and-butter for something with bite. Known for his fastball, he went to more sliders. That led to swings-and-misses, ground balls and a one-way ticket to K.C. “It’s not easy to make deals,” Preller said. “We traded three guys we know are going to help Kansas City in the short and medium term.’’ So Cahill exits a team rolling toward its seventh straight season of below .500 baseball. It’s all about what’s to come and that’s doesn’t include Cahill.

“I think it’s consistent with the plan we have been talking about,” Preller said. “Which is to continue to build the organization with a lot of quality depth as far as players that are going to help us in the future.” Green mentioned Cahill when talking about a postseason, which for the 11th consecutive year won’t include the Padres. “It gives me a team to pull for in the AL,’’ Green said. “If you are allowed to do that in my position.” Cahill put himself in a position to pitch meaningful second-half games. Even if he had to leave home to do it. Contact Jay Paris at jparis8@aol.com. Follow him @jparis_sports

CS San Marcos’ move to Division II is official By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — After a decade of plans, benchmarks and patience, the Cal State San Marcos athletics department received the news they had been waiting for. They’re officially a Division II school. The National Collegiate Athletics Association notified the school on July 9 that it had completed its transition from National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics to NCAA Division II membership. “This move benefits our athletics program on multiple levels,” CSUSM President Karen Haynes said. “During the transition to Division II, we have been establishing exciting rivalries with regional universities, our student-athletes have been able to spend more time in the classroom thanks to reduced travel time, and our University is better aligned athletically with schools of similar size and stature. This is another great day for the University and our athletics program.” The process technically began three years ago when the NCAA approved the school’s application for D-II candidacy after rejecting the school’s previous attempts in 2009 and 2012. But for university officials, the journey from the NAIA to D-II dates back to before 20006, when the school began to build up its athletics department with the intent to move on from the NAIA, which is largely composed of smaller, parochial colleges. Cal State San Marcos sought to join D-II to compete against schools of similar size and demographics. The move would also cut down on travel costs, as putting together a competitive national NAIA schedule required the school to schedule many of its athletic events out of state, including the Association of Independent Institutions

conference tournaments, which are usually across the country. As part of its transition, Cal State San Marcos entered the California Collegiate Athletic Association, a 12-team D-II athletic conference composed largely of San Marcos’ sister Cal State institutions and UC San Diego, schools with reputation of academic excellence. “Our student-athletes are students, first and foremost,” Jennifer Milo, athletic director, said. “The NCAA Division II philosophy reinforces this. The move to Division II is directly in line with our department’s mission and values. We want our student-athletes to graduate and develop into well-rounded individuals who will be successful beyond their life on the playing field.” Cal State San Marcos’ teams have competed in full D-II schedules the past two years, but as part of their transition were not able to compete in postseason tournaments. As a full member, their teams are now eligible for those tournaments. The school also needed to build the facilities to compete in D-II before its transition, chief of which was an on-campus arena for its indoor sports teams. Men’s basketball and women’s volleyball both have boasted gaudy records since their inception in 2010, all the while playing in front of sparse crowds at local junior college and high school gymnasiums, including Pacific Ridge and Escondido high schools and MiraCosta College. The $11.4-million, 1,400seat Sports Center opened last year, giving the men’s basketball and women’s volleyball programs a permanent home and a chance to compete in front of true home crowds. The athletics department will host a public celebration of the transition on Aug. 31 at The Sports Center.
