Dave Roberts addresses allegations By Bianca Kaplanek
REGION — In claims filed by two former staff members, Dave Roberts is accused of misusing county resources, creating a hostile work environment and having an unprofessional relationship with a male staffer. The 3rd District county supervisor said the only thing he is guilty of is poor judgment when it came to replacing his chief of staff. “My mistake was obviously not hiring the correct staff for my office,” Roberts said, referring to Glynnis Vaughn, whom he hired to replace John Weil as his chief of staff. “When you look at the facts this was a bad personnel hire on my behalf. “If you look at the first two years my office was a stable, smooth operation, with almost no personnel changes,” Roberts added. “Then on January 7, a new chief of staff started and worked for approximately 50 days. In that time we had seven resignations, plus her own.” Weil was chief of staff for former Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, who supported Roberts to replace her when she opted not to run in 2012. He left the office in December because he said he was moving out of the county. More than 60 people applied for the job. Roberts said three people recommended he hire Vaughn. Of those who have left his office recently, including four people in three weeks, Vaughn and Diane Porter, his former office manager and scheduler, have filed claims against the county, a precursor to a lawsuit. They claim Roberts used his staff for campaign

Double-amputee to cycle across America By Ellen Wright
ESCONDIDO — Escondido resident and retired Marine Sgt. Toran Gaal just finished four marathons in four weeks. He placed first in the Achilles division at the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon Sunday and the following day, he began a bicycle ride across America. Gaal hopes to complete the 65-day trek on a hand-cycle, because he lost both his legs in Afghanistan after an Improvised Explosive Device detonated underneath him. His goal is to raise

work — he is up for re-election in 2016 — and shared a hotel room on a business trip with Harold Meza, a policy adviser and community representative. They also claim, among other things, that the supervisor showed favoritism toward males and promised raises and promotions if staff members would lie to the human resources department. Using copies of text messages and a sworn statement from Meza, Gary Gartner, a spokesman for Roberts, refuted the allegations during a May 21 press conference. Speaking on his own behalf for the first time, Roberts denied any inappropriate relationship with Meza. “I want to be crystal
clear,” Roberts said. “We did not have an affair. These slanderous, false allegations have to stop. They are a lie. “We never stayed in a hotel together,” he added. “We did go on a water authority trip and we were assigned to a military-style workers barracks. There were two single beds in the room. If I wasn’t gay this would not even be a story.” In his statement Meza said he and Roberts were “booked into a room with two separate beds.” “All that happened was that I went to sleep in my own bed. There was no sexual activity of any kind. “Let me be perfectly clear on this,” Meza added. “I am a heterosexual male.” Copies of text messag-
es between Roberts and Porter that were distributed by Gartner include several happy emoticons and present what appears to be a positive working relationship and friendship between the two. One features a cartoon outlining 12 outstanding personality traits of a great boss, which Porter described as Roberts “to a tee.” In her final text on March 31 she wrote, “You know I love me some Dave Roberts.” Porter’s attorney also distributed copies of text messages, one of which has Roberts saying Meza could keep him warm on a trip to the East Coast, although Meza ultimately did not TURN TO ROBERTS ON 18
$20,000 for the Semper Fi Fund, a nonprofit that provides assistance to wounded service members. “I just want to raise awareness for adaptive athletes across the world,” Gaal said. He told the crowd of about 70 people at City Hall Monday how important exercise was to him in coping with his injury. “I spent much of two years of my injury just wallowing in my own self-pity but I got out and started surfing,” Gaal said.

Abed to address rumors of run for supervisor seat Monday By Ellen Wright
ESCONDIDO — Mayor Sam Abed is planning to address rumors Monday that he will be running for the San Diego County District 3 Board of Supervisor seat currently held by Supervisor Dave Roberts. In recent weeks, allegations have come up from two of Roberts’ former staff members that he misused county resources, created a hostile work environment and had an unprofessional relationship with a staff member. He refuted the claims calling them slanderous and false. The Republican Party of San Diego County is hoping to replace him, although nobody has stepped forward yet to officially
announce a candidacy. “There will be at least one Republican candidate before summer,” said Chairman of the Republican Party of San Diego County Tony Krvaric. “As long as Roberts is there, we’ll keep challenging him.” Krvaric said they’re not in a hurry to place support behind one candidate because the election is a year away. “There’s plenty of great talent out there, and any one of them would make a great supervisor,” said Krvaric. He also stressed the importance of the seat. Roberts is the only democrat on the Board of SuperTURN TO SUPERVISOR ON 18

Farm Bureau executive director speaks on drought By Promise Yee
ENCINITAS — Though the topic of a recent library workshop was officially climate change, presenter Eric Larson admits he is not an expert on carbon footprint. What he does know a lot about is water and farming. Larson, San Diego Farm Bureau executive director, spoke at the Encinitas Library on May 27 and shared an overview of California water systems, the impact of the drought and solutions that need to be implemented. California is facing a water supply shortage due to the current four-year drought that follows previous dry years. Larson said state water systems also have flaws that add to the shortage. One chief fault is the lack of water storage facilities. “CliffsNotes” on the talk are storage systems were designed around water runoff from winter snowfall in the Sierra Mountains. Since there was very little snow last year, there is less water in storage. Other factors that add to the problem include the Salton Sea. The manmade lake was accidentally created when the Army Corps of Engineers channeled the Colorado River, and it got away
ter was transferred to residential use, the lake has started to dry up and toxic dirt is exposed and stirred up by winds. Larson said the solution might be to give the water back to Coachella Valley farmers to prevent further lake evaporation and health risks. Developing more local water sources was also discussed. Larson said desalinating ocean water is costly, uses a lot of energy and is currently an impractical way to secure a large amount of potable water. “We’re not going to desal our way out of this drought,” Larson said. He suggested a better option is to treat reclaimed water to the degree it can be used by residents. Larson said the term “toilet to tap” set back consumer buy-in of the idea. He added it is a common sense, cost-effective way to ensure more water. Lawson said current water reduction mandates do not credit development of local water sourcEric Larson, San Diego Farm Bureau executive director, speaks at Encinitas Library.

Escondido Creek ACLU sues Escondido for discrimination Conservancy secures 241 acres By Ellen Wright
Property considered a ‘very important habitat area’ By Ellen Wright
ESCONDIDO — Members of the Escondido Creek Conservancy are celebrating a big win, after securing a 241-acre property in Elfin Forest. The property, called Cielo del Norte, cost $13.5 million. “That area in Elfin Forest is considered a very important habitat area,” said Conservancy Executive Director Ann Van Leer. Van Leer said the property will help maintain crucial environment for the Gnatcatcher bird, which is a federally listed threatened species. SANDAG, California Department of Fish and Wildlife and SDG&E all contributed grants to help secure the property. “It’s the last piece of a long open space area,” said SANDAG Senior Regional Planner Keith Greer. The purchase was made in early May. SANDAG was able to contribute $4.8 million from TransNet, a half-cent voter approved sales tax that pays for many regional transportation and habitat preservation projects. Van Leer said the main goal for the property is preservation but there
will be trails for public accessibility. It’s still too soon to know how many miles of trails will be installed. Had the conservancy not been working towards preserving the land, about 70 homes could have been built on the site. Van Leer said that because the seller was willing to sell to the conservancy, things were a little easier. “Fortunately, we had a willing seller who was willing to sell it to the conservancy and we were able to successfully secure grant funds for it so it all came together. It was a beautiful thing,” said Van Leer. Members from the conservancy have been working 24 years to preserve the habitat along the Escondido Creek Watershed area. They manage 1,300 acres in the watershed. One challenge the conservancy faces is managing all of the properties in perpetuity. “Part of our responsibility is to put together a good management plan, and implement the plan,” Van Leer said. The property will be maintained through interest from endowments at The San Diego Foundation. Van Leer said the project took lots of hard work and collaboration from regional entities. “It was a wonderful partnership. It was one of those times where everybody is marching together,” Van Leer said.
ESCONDIDO — The San Diego branch of the American Civil Liberties Union is suing the city of Escondido claiming the city unfairly discriminated against unaccompanied migrant children last summer. Last June, the Escondido Planning Commission denied a proposal from non-profit Southwest Key to convert a former nursing home into a shelter for unaccompanied minors that illegally cross the border. Escondido City Council upheld the planning commission’s decision and the issue drew national attention. Mayor Sam Abed appeared on Fox News to explain his belief that the federal government, who contracted with Southwest Key, shouldn’t be involved in local land-use issues. “The ACLU has no business interfering with a land use decision. It is our government that needs to make that determination,” Abed told Fox News last August. “I’m a proud immigrant coming to this country for
the values, for the liberty, for the freedom,” said Abed. “I see myself fighting the ACLU because they are trying to attack these values that America stands for.” Councilwoman Olga Diaz was the only councilmember in favor of the shelter and drew national

attention from MSNBC. The ACLU is suing Escondido claiming they denied children from Central America housing based on race, color, national origin, ancestry, immigration status and/or hostility to federal policy. The proposed shelter was intended for children
who were crossing the border in large numbers to escape violence and upheaval in Central America. “This is what 21st Century discrimination looks like,” said David Loy, Legal Director for the ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties. “Whatever the personal beliefs of individual officials, the City of Escondido capitulated to discrimination and xenophobia and unlawfully denied a home to traumatized children.” Planning commissioners originally denied the shelter for a variety of reasons. Some commissioners argued the proposed 96-bed shelter would negatively impact the surrounding neighborhood because of traffic and noise. Others argued the shelter wasn’t large enough for nearly 100 children and was meant to house ailing seniors. The shelter proposed was meant to be temporary. Children would stay there for a maximum of 30 days while staff located
their family members. The ACLU appealed the decision to city council last October. Hundreds of residents attended the hearing, which got heated at times. Opinionated residents on each side waved signs with provocative messages. Some residents refused to say the Pledge of Allegiance, drawing boos from those with opposing political views. All of the council members, except Olga Diaz, voted to uphold the commission’s decision denying the shelter. Southwest Key originally tried to open a facility at the site of a former motel, but couldn’t because of changes to the zoning codes. The lawsuit will be heard in San Diego federal court. Southwest Key currently operates 23 immigrant youth shelters in Texas, Arizona and California. Two of those shelters are in San Diego, one in El Cajon and one in Lemon Grove.
Credit rating agencies reaffirm Vallecitos credit rating By Aaron Burgin
SAN MARCOS — The soon-to-be-completed Carlsbad Desalination Facility is already reaping benefits for at least one water agency. The Vallecitos Water District had its high credit rating affirmed by one of the leading credit rating agencies, and upgraded by another, in no small part due to the district’s planned purchase of desalinated water from the facility. Fitch Ratings recently affirmed the San Marcos
district’s “AA+” rating, while Standard and Poor’s upgraded its rating from a AA to a AA+. Both rating agencies gave the water district a “stable” outlook for the foreseeable future. A key reason for the high ratings, according to a district news release, is that investment in local storage has lessened the risk of supply disruptions. Vallecitos could see as much as a third of its demands met by desalinated water, which is considered “drought proof.”
The $1 billion desalination plant is expected to produce 50 million gallons of water per day, or roughly 7 to 10 percent of the region’s water supply. Crews are nearly done with a 10mile pipeline that will deliver the water to the San Diego County Water Authority’s aqueduct in San Marcos, with water expected to be delivered starting in early 2016. In addition, the ratings agencies highlighted the district’s diverse revenue
stream, strong debt coverage performance, affordable rates, no planned debt over the next five years and conservative financial forecasting as other reasons for the strong ratings. Vallecitos provides water and wastewater services for nearly 100,000 customers in a 45-squaremile area that includes San Marcos and unincorporated Lake San Marcos and portions of Vista, Carlsbad and unincorporated North San Diego County.

Time for North County to get on board with housing package By Bruce Reznik
What issue is so universal it brings together diverse groups like the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, California Building Industry Association, California Association of Realtors, social justice and environmental advocates, business and organized labor, veterans, seniors, the LGBT community and people with disabilities? Access to affordable homes is critical to everyone in our community, and a package of bills championed by Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) offers California the opportunity to start building again after most affordable construction has ground to a halt. With so much support from all over the spectrum, it is surprising that our North County Assemblymembers haven’t supported this groundbreaking legislation. Every San Diegan knows that the cost of housing in the region is too high. Rarely a week goes by without a study identifying San Diego as one of — if not the — most expensive places to live. Most recently, the National Low Income Housing Coalition’s Out of Reach report concludes that the annual income needed to afford a two-bedroom apartment in San Diego County is $55,600, meaning a minimum wage worker would have to work 119 hours per week — or three full-time jobs — just to pay the rent. Even when the average San Diegan does somehow manage to pay their rent, this means these individuals — working families, seniors, veterans and others on fixed income — do not have sufficient funds to pay for transportation costs to get to work, utilities, healthy foods or health care. To remedy this growing crisis throughout California, the state legislature is considering strategies to create more affordable housing statewide. The centerpiece
of this package is Assembly Bill (‘AB’) 1335, Atkins’ (AD 78) legislation that will provide a stable and permanent source of funding to build affordable homes for people in need. Having a dedicated funding source is critical to provide developers with the certainty they need to spend the years it takes to build such affordable communities. It is necessary to make up for the loss of redevelopment funds that used to provide an ongoing source of funding to the tune of approximately $86 million annually in San Diego and over $1 billion statewide. It is essential in San Diego, which as recently reported by the California Housing Partnership Corporation,
families and in need of stable homes. And the business community is supportive of AB 1335 as they recognize the San Diego region will no longer be competitive for business if workers cannot afford to live here. With this broad-based community support, AB 1335 has yet to receive support from our three North County legislators — Assemblymembers Brian Maienschein, Rocky Chavez and Marie Waldron. While these legislators have been advocates for veterans’ issues, the homeless and enhancing the climate for local business, they have yet to commit to supporting this legislation that will provide the critical tools to address issues they care so deeply about when it

Veterans groups have gotten behind AB 1335 as they recognize San Diego is home to nearly 39,000 post9/11 veterans, the highest concentration in the nation, many of whom are now or soon will be in need of stable, affordable homes. Homeless advocacy groups are onboard as we continue to move to a proven “housing first” model that demonstrates the most important factor in getting people off the street is to provide a safe and stable home. The LGBT community supports affordable housing as they recognize that up to 40 percent of homeless youth are from the LGBT community — separated from their
comes to a floor vote in the Assembly by June 5. We call upon all legislators throughout the region to support the entirety of the affordable homes package, including AB 1335, and ask upon all San Diegans to contact their local legislators in support of these measures. As San Diego Housing Federation’s Executive Director, Bruce Reznik leads the organization in its efforts to ensure all San Diegans, regardless of income, can afford a safe and stable place to call home. About the San Diego Housing Federation The San Diego Housing Federation is a broad coalition of organizations and advocates that work to ensure all San Diegans, regardless of income, have access to a safe, stable and affordable place they can call home.
On May 20, the Encinitas city council voted 3 (Shaffer, Kranz, Blakespear) to 2 (Gaspar, Muir) to build a multipurpose rail trail along San Elijo Avenue in Cardiff. I am very pleased to know we will have one more piece of the puzzle for those of us who choose non-motorized transportation. We all really want the same thing — to move safely and easily from Point A to Point B. We just each have different ways of doing it — some prefer an auto, and I don’t begrudge them that preference; some prefer a bicycle or simply using their feet. The bravest cyclists are willing and wishing to share the existing road with the motorist. But a large chunk of our population would love the opportunity to cycle to work, on errands, to a social event, or to the beach — but they’re too afraid. While the motorists have a city’s worth of pavement to traverse, the cyclist is left with a patchwork of disconnected paths. We are only asking for that which the motorists already have. Have you ever noticed the subliminal assumption many of us make: people in cars are going somewhere important; people on bikes are just out having fun. I heard it reflected in the statements at the meeting. “You cyclists have a lane on 101, why do you need San Elijo?” If I asked the question in reverse, would it somehow sound odd to you? — “You motorists have a road on 101, why do you need San
Elijo?” The concerns of the Cardiff residents opposing the trail are real — they are worried about 1) a potential fence along the railroad tracks 2) changes in the parking situation, and 3) the challenge of exiting their driveways in an automobile. Those are solvable problems and the City Council is actually working to solve them.
and healthy folks. Walking is good for all of us. 3) Exiting your driveway safely. I don’t know the perfect answer. Perhaps the city can provide free mirrors for all homes on San Elijo. It is a challenge. But it will be a challenge with or without a bike path. More people are coming to Encinitas because it’s an amazing place and that means more traffic on all of
We are asking for that which the motorists already have 1) We have been asking for at-grade crossings for decades. Thanks to the work of our NCTD representative, Councilman Kranz, a partnership is being forged with the transit district that could make at-grade crossings a reality. And thank you to Councilwoman Shaffer for asking pointed questions of NCTD at the council meeting to move the process along. We need more crossings, so everyone will have safe and legal access to the beach. We may currently have access — but it is neither safe nor legal. If you want more pedestrian crossings, tell all of your city council members and ask what you can do to help. 2) Parking will change — but there will be enough of it. If you don’t like the current proposal of how to lay it out, propose something else. You may have to walk a short distance from your car to your home, but this is the land of good weather
our roads. Narrowing the lanes to allow for auto, cyclist, and pedestrian activity will slow the traffic and potentially make the difficult task of leaving your homes a bit easier. And finally — one resident ended his presentation by saying “We are at war.” I countered, stating that this is not a war. War is much more serious. But I’ve been thinking. This is how wars get started — because of silly little disagreements — because people work against each other and not together. We can solve this problem together. I can’t wait to see the first real estate ad for a home on San Elijo Avenue — “beautiful ocean view home, just across the street from a delightful cycling/ walking path. A three-minute bike ride to both the local grocery store and world famous surfing.” Judy Berlfein is an Encinitas resident.

REGION — It’s going to take more than rain or fire to stop North County cyclists. Bike to Work Day was postponed for the second year in a row, yet the amount of people participating increased from past years, said Carlsbad Special Events Coordinator Nick Sitar. Last year, it was postponed due to the fires and this year because of rain on May 15. More than 200 riders went by the pit stop at Pine Avenue and Carlsbad Boulevard on May 29, with about half stopping for free tee-shirts, pastries and bike accessories. Sitar said a few people were coming all the way from Orange County. The San Diego Association of Governments, or SANDAG sponsors the event, in an effort to get more people out of their cars and onto bikes. “It’s really amazing, the relationship between people that bike, people that drive and use transit,” said Hannah Williams with the San Diego Bike Coalition. “ (If) more folks ride their bikes, it eases up congestion.” She said one of the big draws of Bike to Work Day is that people feel safe riding their bikes when there are more riders on the road. “It comes back to safety in numbers,” Williams

Disposti said. â€œItâ€™s our first time dealing with this type of funding and process.â€? Disposti said once the lease agreement is finalized next week, the center would work with an architect to design the interior. The next step would be hiring a contractor to do the building. Disposti said the city would disperse funds as needed, and help the center through the process. Once the new site opens it would have three more rooms than the current center. This would allow more support group meetings, a larger youth area and secure offices for confidential documents. It would also provide space for outreach training about the LGBT community for educators, police and hospital staff. â€œWeâ€™re happy to grow into this bigger space,â€? Disposti said. Disposti said the interior finishes would be warm and inviting. He said the goal is to make the new center a welcoming place where people feel uplifted and empowered to grow as individuals.

had largely left behind in East Village. There, I knew what was being done to confront the issue, and who was leading that charge. Here in North County, I am only left with growing questions. Where can the homeless turn to for food, shelter, or social assistance? What are elected officials doing to help make a difference in peopleâ€™s lives? Do cities here differ in their approach to dealing with homelessness? Who are the unsung everyday heroes that meet the needs of the homeless population in our part of the region? Most importantly, what is the broader vision and plan to ending homelessness in North County? Some of the workload addressing the issue in North County is falling to those who have broader public obligations. Caltrans announced this month that it was clearing out four homeless encampments along Interstate 5 in Oceanside, Carlsbad and Del Mar. Speaking with Caltrans Public Relations Officer Ed Cartagena, I learned that while North County highway encampments are generally smaller and less elaborate than those found in the San Diego metro area, public calls to remove them have been increasing in our area. Cartagena estimates there are 200 encampments in North County. Caltransâ€™ maintenance crews can only do so much â€” 400 maintenance workers are responsible for hundreds of different tasks, and are assigned to projects across 4,000 acres of right of way in San Diego and Imperial counties. State resources and manpower can only be stretched so far. Itâ€™s up to us to find the real solutions that will end homelessness in North County, and commit to the hard work to get it done.
Iâ€™ve decided to write a new series of columns confronting North Countyâ€™s homelessness issue, and I hope youâ€™ll join me in exploring the challenges and opportunities we have to end this epidemic in our community. My knowledge of homelessness comes mostly from living in places with some of the nationâ€™s largest homeless populations for eight years â€” San Francisco and San Diegoâ€™s East Village neighborhood. Encounters were part of everyday life. Iâ€™ve witnessed tragic incidents that were preventable, and worried about the safety of my loved ones. Iâ€™ve seen faces far younger than mine on the streets, and families that deserved a better life. With age, Iâ€™ve come to respect the complexities of solving homelessness, and have earned a growing desire to restore human dignity. Iâ€™ve also followed the policies and politics that have too often failed to provide long-term, comprehensive solutions. Every community has its roadblocks. San Franciscoâ€™s mayor struggled to gain the support of the Board of Supervisors for a modest â€œsit-lieâ€? law prohibiting sitting or lying on sidewalks from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., and resorted to taking his proposal to the ballot for a public vote. Meanwhile, only until recently did the city of San Diego muster the political courage to agree to fund a permanent homeless shelter, after years of political tip-toeing with temporary winter shelters in East Village and Barrio Logan. I never thought that after moving to Carlsbad last year, Iâ€™d still see so many homeless on Vince Vasquez is a policy analyst at an economic think the streets, in parking lots and grocery stores. tank based in Torrey Pines.

BizAir to start servicing Palomar Airport By Ellen Wright
CARLSBAD — A new airline is taking over service from McClellan–Palomar Airport to Los Angeles International Airport, which was formerly served by United Express. BizAir Shuttle is set to have their first flight out of Carlsbad with service to LAX June 18 at 6 a.m. They won’t be offering as many flights a day as United did, but are looking to ramp up service as the demand increases. Airport Manager Olivier Brackett said the demand for commercial service is high. “We receive phone calls every day asking about commercial service to different cities,” Brackett said. In the beginning, Bi-
zAir will have two roundtrip flights to LAX a day. United Express had seven round-trips a day but stopped service on April 6 after discontinuing the use of the Embraer 120 Brasilia turboprop planes. In January, the Federal Aviation Administration released new rules involving pilot’s duty times, which increased the cost of operating the Brasilia turboprops and caused United to switch to an all-jet fleet. BizAir Founder Daniel Cretsinger had hoped to have BizAir up and running by the time United left, but faced issues getting approval at LAX. LAX is undergoing a $4.1 billion remodel. It’s the largest public works program in the history of
the city. Cretsinger said the remodel has not only made it difficult to get the airline service approved, it’s also unpleasant for passengers. “It’s a real unfriendly user environment right now for passengers,” Cretsinger said. The remodel is scheduled to be finished in 2019. BizAir is adding service to Las Vegas in July and to Phoenix in August. Cretsinger said they likely won’t be adding more cities to their route within the first year although they’re taking suggestions for the future. He said they’re considering service to San Jose and Sacramento. They have one 30-passenger Embraer Regional
Jet and one Dornier jet. In L.A., they’ll share a terminal with Virgin America, Allegiant, Frontier and Spirit Airlines. Brackett said BizAir may not be the only commercial provider for long. Airport officials are in talks with multiple interested parties who are looking to provide service at the airport. Another airline service recently opened at the Carlsbad airport, Surf Air. Surf Air is a membership-based “all-you-canfly” service, which offers unlimited private flights for $1,750 a month. Members must also pay a $1,000 initiation fee. The airport is also home to multiple charter businesses and flight schools.
Students succeed with reading program VISTA — Ask Empressa Elementary School third-grader Jordan Kondo a question about Greek mythology and the chances are he’ll have the answer. Kondo, 9, was so fascinated by tales of gods and goddesses, among other topics, that he was the top reader among all the elementary school students in Vista Unified School District in a reading competition that ran from March 31 to May 8. To win the contest, Jordan logged near-
ly 106 hours on a computerized reading program called myOn, said Jerri Keen, a district content support resource teacher in charge of the reading challenge. The myOn program tracks how much students read, what they read, how well they understand what they read and the level at which they’re reading. Jordan’s main competition was fellow third-grader Anaiah Edwards, who placed second in the district-wide myOn reading chal-
lenge. Wright said she structures class projects around topics students are reading about. Other students placing in the top 10 readers in the district’s myOn reading competition were Lake Elementary School second-grader Madison Steiger; Lake fourth-grader Amy Zhang; Alamosa Park Elementary School third-grader Sean McClellan; Lake fourth-grader Hunter Pochop; Hannalei Elementary School second-grader Eric Sanchez; Casista Center for Tech-

so spotless I believed that dust never built up and soap scum did not exist. Dirty bathrooms? Phsst. Dirty sliding glass door tracks? Nope. Animal hair? Uh-uh. Spider webs? Heaven forfend. There were rarely dirty dishes in her kitchen sink. Her silver didn’t even tarnish. I had some big surprises once I moved out on my own, but then I was young and energetic and lived in tiny apartments. I modeled myself after mom, back in the day, and was a true clean freak, even (briefly) after having children. I remember downing massive quantities of caffeine at 7 p.m. and turning into the white tornado until midnight. My back hurts to even reminisce about it. Then one day I woke up and realized I loathed every aspect of housecleaning and really needed to just back off. Yes, I had help for a while and it was heaven, but budgets don’t always allow for such luxuries, and I am back to being the mistress of my abode. Bother! I now fall back on my favorite motto. “My house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy.”
I hesitated at writing this column, as it seems like yesterday I was writing on this same subject. Turns out it was two years ago, the last time my daughter moved. Fortunately, she hopes to stay a decade in the new condominium. I will need that much time to recover. I feel pretty sure I will not be able to stand upright in the morning, if I make it out of bed at all. Even if my legs work, my hands have gone on strike demanding multiple treatments of moisturizer, several max doses of acetaminophen and at least one expensive manicure. Did I scrub a lot? Did I scrub top to bottom? I feel like it just finished the squat thrust portion of the Big Tony’s Boot Camp, followed by the mud run. Thinking like my mom, I cleaned places no one had ever looked at before. That quaint little granny flat is cleaner now than it has ever been and will ever be again. It took the entire weekend.

ESCONDIDO — Celebrating the Indian tradition of Holi, welcoming in spring and the passing of winter, revelers at Grape Day Park on Saturday threw their worries to the wind in the form of colored corn starch, drenching themselves and anyone nearby in colors of purple, green, yellow and pink. India’s Holi Festival of Color is typically celebrated in late February or early March, which helps to bridge social gaps and to renew relationships, often through hugging. This is the second year in a row the Holi Festival of Colors was hosted at the park. A second event is scheduled for Oceanside’s Rotary Park June 13. Revelers throw their worries to wind, in this case, colored cornstarch, to help celebrate the Indian tradition of Holi. Photos by Tony Cagala

Frampton doesn’t live in the past on new tour By Alan Sculley
Peter Frampton, of course, has an album in “Frampton Comes Alive” that gave him hit songs he will always have to play whenever he steps on stage for a concert. But that iconic album hasn’t forced him to live in the past. Quite the opposite, Frampton insists on moving forward musically, refusing to let that define his artistic present and future. That outlook was apparent when he celebrated the 35th anniversary of “Frampton Comes Alive” with a lengthy 201112 tour that featured an epic show each night. Yes, he played the live album in its entirety. But then he devoted an entire second set to newer material, much of which came from two acclaimed albums that have helped rejuvenate his career over the past decade, his Grammy-winning 2006 instrumental album “Fingerprints” and an equally excellent 2010 CD, “Thank You Mr. Churchill.” Now Frampton pushed himself into another realm, composing seven songs that were part of a 2013 performance of the Cincinnati Ballet that was set to his music. Those seven new songs were released in June 2014 as the EP, “Hummingbird in a Box.” Given the chance to collaborate with the Cincinnati Ballet, Frampton realized he was no longer bound to the usual rules of pop/rock songwriting structure. “We don’t necessarily have to have intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, out,” Frampton explained in a phone interview. “It can be whatever we want it to be. Therefore all of a sudden I decided I would have a song (‘The One In 901’) completely break down, and it just had background vocals over a riff, just for a visual thing almost. “On (the track) ‘Norman Wisdom,’ it’s just a chorus comes in every now and again, and the rest of it is completely instrumental. So each track was completely different and didn’t follow any songwriting rules — not that there should be rules, but there are — well, accepted (conventions for) this is how you go. You have your verse, your chorus, your verse, your chorus, your bridge, chorus out sort of thing. But this, we just sort of changed up and said

there’s no rhyme or reason to do anything specific that should come in here.” If the song structures weren’t typical, the music Frampton created for the Cincinnati Ballet should still sound familiar to fans. An EP that is as eclectic as it is concise, “Hummingbird in a Box” ranges from the fluid and slightly jazzy “Promenade” to the acoustic “Norman Wisdom” (which has a jazzy Django Reinhardt feel) to snazzy and rocking “The One In 901” (which has a bit of Joe Satriani in its molten guitar lines) to the topical anthem “Friendly Fire.” Frampton is so pleased with the music on “Hummingbird in a Box,” that he thinks the project will set a precedent for albums he makes in the future. “It was very freeing,” he said of “Hummingbird.” “It’s also made me think ahead because that’s the way I want to approach my music from now on as well.

It’s just different. How can I make it different? How can I make it more enjoyable for me to find new places to go? And the ballet definitely made me sit up and think, wow, this is different. And it doesn’t have to always be the same. We can change it up. There are no rules. There really are no rules when it comes to music. “What I do, it’s not going to be the same as a straight rock pop album,” Frampton said. “I don’t think it will ever be like that again. It’s just going to be different.” Frampton at some point may go beyond exploring
how he can use unconventional song structures within a rock-pop album format. Having gotten a taste of ballet, he has his sights set on collaborating with an orchestra — perhaps the Nashville Orchestra in the city where he now spends considerable time — on some sort of musical work. “I have often thought I would love to do something with a symphony, but not my old music,” Frampton said. “I’m talking about something brand new, so that it’s actually written, coordinated with the symphony, the conductor and whoever would be the arranger and whatever. That would be something I would really love to do, and mainly instrumental.” For now, what Frampton wants to do most is play live, and he’s on tour this summer with Cheap Trick. The co-headlining format should give him a chance to hit the highlights of a solo career that began in 1971, following his four-album stint with Humble Pie. “I always like to keep it fresh,” Frampton said of his shows. “So I’m always going to do the chestnuts, the ones that people want to hear. But we do mix it up."

Fundraiser set to benefit San Marcos equine therapy program SAN MARCOS — Lia Ray knows all too well the stress associated with the life of a cancer patient. A breast cancer survivor herself, she founded Ray of Sunshine Equestrian Therapy in 2014 to realize a dream she had to help others like her find an escape. Ray was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 30. She said the cancer treatments would have been almost unbearable without her horse. “I decided to create a place where families affected by cancer could have something to look forward to other than doctor visits and treatments,” Ray said. “I wanted to create a healing place without walls and with no boundaries.” Knowing that animals, including horses, have long been regarded as natural healers, Ray realized that Lia Ray (third from left), founder of Ray of Sunshine Equestrian Therapy, with a group of cancer survivors and working with horses helps volunteers at the facility.

participants gain insight as it relates to emotions, communication, relationships, personal healing and inner strength. “Ray of Sunshine has created a safe and healing environment where our program is tailored specifically to each persons needs and capabilities,” Ray said. “This makes each experience unique to each person and their cancer journey. Our program will help families find a new way to cope with a cancer diagnoses, learn to live in the now, and give people something to look forward other than cancer and cancer-related things.” Ray of Sunshine Equestrian Therapy doesn’t only benefit cancer patients, it also helps survivors, siblings and caregivers. “The therapy helps promote healing mentally and phys-
ically for those who have been through or are going through the trauma of cancer,” Ray said. On June 19, a fundraiser is being held for Ray of Sunshine that will help more families and individuals benefit from the therapeutic equine program. The event will feature a silent auction, hosted bar and dinner by Nectar & Greens. There will also be live music from Grand Canyon Sundown. Tickets for the family-friendly event can be purchased for $25 online at rsunshine. org or for $30 at the door. The event will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. at Williams Barn at Walnut Grove Park.

History and farm-fresh food few of inn’s offerings hit the road e’louise ondash
hat is shakshuka? I haven’t a clue, but it’s on the breakfast menu at Los Poblanos Historic Inn and Organic Farm and I’m game. Thanks to my cell phone and Google, I learn that shakshuka is a popular Moroccan breakfast dish of poached eggs that float in a spicy tomato sauce, garnished with bacon and feta cheese. And here at Los Poblanos, it is accompanied, much to my delight, by gluten-free cornbread. Who could ask for anything more? Certainly not I. Flash back to yesterday when we arrived … My husband, Jerry, deliberately slows as he drives down the long entry road that runs through the dense arches of cottonwood trees. It doesn’t take long, however, to know that this is where we want to be. Los Poblanos, a boutique hotel and lavender farm, sits within the boundaries of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, a village of almost 7,000 just seven miles from downtown Albuquerque. The inn could be a day away for all we know. That’s because residents of Los Ranchos, a 4.4-square-mile town sitting just east of the Rio Grande, incorporated in 1958 with the goals of maintaining the area’s rural flavor and creating a unique identity. For those who live in the Albuquerque metro area, Los Poblanos is a place to get away without having to go far. For the rest of us, it’s just a beautiful place to get away. The original boundaries of the ranch once stretched all the way to the crest of the Sandia Mountains, but today, Los Poblanos Inn occupies 25 acres. In the 1930s, the ranch’s first owners hired notable craftsman, professionals and artists to create what we see today. John Gaw Meem, considered New Mexico’s finest 20th-century architect, designed and remodeled the ranch house and the large communal building called La Quinta. Today, La Quinta still serves as a gathering place for social, civic and cultural events. Tinsmith Robert Woodman fashioned the light fixtures illuminating the buildings; ironsmith Walter Gilbert crafted the iron door handles depicting San Ysidro (the patron saint of farmers and laborers); artist Gustave Baumann carved the floral and Native American designs into the oversized pine doors and other designs over the mantle in the formal ballroom; and landscape architect Rose Greely designed the formal Spanish-style gardens where visitors can meander or pause to contemplate life and the land. Los Poblanos presents a complete package of history,

tranquility, setting, comfort and cuisine. Executive Chef Jonathan Perno, also a farmer, creates the daily breakfast and dinner faire inspired by produce and meat that are available at more than a dozen nearby farms. Fresh farm-to-fork cuisine helped Los Poblanos earn recognition in 2013 from Bon Appétit magazine as one of the 10 best food-lover’s hotels in the country. (The staff gladly accommodates special dietary needs.) Diners enjoy Perno’s culinary creations in a warm and rustic farmhouse dining room softly illuminated by Robert Woodman chandeliers of tin. Los Poblanos owner Matt Rembe has created a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts; the farm is a poster child for agritourism. Guest houses provide all the modern amenities within a charming, uncluttered environment. The family's other enterprises include wholesale production, retail sales (a gift shop features many items made on the farm), the

restaurant and catering and venues for large and small events. After enjoying our Moroccan breakfast, we stroll to the lavender fields, which are warming in the April sun.

SAN MARCOS — The city of San Marcos is hosting its annual Independence Day celebration, all day July 4 at Bradley Park, 1587 Linda Vista Drive. It is also planning its traditional fireworks display,
and is looking to the North County community to help. The show will be entirely dependent on community donations. To contribute, send tax-deductible donations by June 26 to: San Marcos Fireworks Fund, 3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos 92069. Donations of $25 or more will receive a commemorative item. You can picnic and play all day, then enjoy the evening’s free entertainment, The Polyester Express, at 6 p.m. Children’s activities include face painting, party jumps and more. Food concessions will include all the traditional holiday fare, including hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, snow cones and non-alcoholic beverages.
“Meals” 2.0 Silicon Valley code-writers and engineers work long hours — with apparently little time for “food” as we know it. Eating is “time wasted,” in the words of celebrity inventor Elon Musk, and normal meals a “marketing facade,” said another valley bigwig. The New York Times reported in May that techies are eagerly scarfing down generic (but nutrient-laden) liquids like Schmilk and People Chow, largely for ease of preparation, to speed their return to work. The Times food editor described one product as “oat flour” washed down with “the worst glass of milk ever.” “Pancake batter,” according to a Times reporter. (That supermarket staple Ensure? According to the food editor, it’s “fine wine” compared to Schmilk.) Distracted Americans Air travelers last year left $675,000 in (obviously) spare change in airport screening bins, reported the Transportation Security Administration in April. Of the cars reported stolen in 2014, 44,828 were with keys left inside them, according to an April National Insurance Crime Bureau release. American credit card holders fail to claim “about $4 billion” in earned “rewards” each year, according to CardHub.com’s 2015 Credit Card Rewards Report. Our Least Hardy Generation (1) Nursing student Jennifer Burbella filed a lawsuit against Misericordia University (near Scranton, Pennsylvania) for not helping her enough to pass a required course that she failed twice. The professional caregiver-to-be complained of stress so severe that she needed a distraction-free room and extra time for the exam, but claims she deserved even more special treatment. (2) Four Columbia University students complained in May that courses in Greek mythology and Roman poetry need “trigger” warnings — advance notice to super-sensitive students that history may include narratives of “disturbing” events (that have somehow been studied without such warnings for centuries). In March, following the departure of Zayn Malik from the British band One Direction, an executive with the Peninsula employment law firm in Manchester told London’s Daily Telegraph that he had received “hundreds” of calls from employers seeking advice about workers who were requesting “compassionate” leave because Malik’s resignation had left them distraught. (Also, a spokeswoman for the charity Young Minds told the Telegraph she was concerned about Malik fans self-harming.)

Sniper Instructors aim for success in training By Cpl. Shaltiel Dominguez
CAMP PENDLETON — Staff Sgt. Daniel Ramos and Sgt. Emmanuel Velayo teach prospective Scout Snipers about the art of war: Sniping, stalking, land navigation and observation are their crafts. Ramos and Velayo are instructors with the Scout Sniper Course, Advanced Infantry Battalion, School of Infantry West, and each training evolution is a chance for them to become better snipers. “We have to uphold the high standard of Marine Corps marksmanship for our students,” said Ramos. “As instructors, we also need to stay proficient for them.” Both Marines got a chance to refresh their own skills and learn new techniques when they took second place in the 24th Armed Forces Skill at Arms Meeting Sniper Championship hosted by the National Guard Marksmanship Training Center at Fort Chaffee, Ark. “At the end of the day it was like another training evolution,” said Ramos. “I learned a lot. We learned a lot by competing against other services and saw the different techniques that the Army utilizes in their sniper program.” “Those are some things we could take back and apply to our programs for our students,” added Ramos. They competed against teams from the National Guard, Marine Corps, Air Force and other foreign al-

lied militaries. The competition offered service members the opportunity to test their skills and practice their proficiency on a variety of weapons systems and field techniques. Ramos and Velayo also received first place for the AFSAM Fieldcraft Award, which tested skills such as stalking, land navigation and observation. “It was challenging at points, but definitely one of those things that we train here for and do all the time,” said Velayo. “It wasn’t exactly a walk in the park, but it was something

For Velayo, it was first time both competing in the event, and in using the .300 Winchester Magnum and the Army’s XM2010 enhanced sniper rifle. “It was definitely a crash, burn and learn session for a couple days,” said Velayo. “But I was able to learn differences in handling in handling those weapons, which helped me become a better marksman.” Ramos ranked as the second overall highest shooter in the competition. It was his second year competing. In 2014, Ramos teamed up with Sgt. Shaun Garvey to take first place. “Our success is due to the unique position we’re in,” said Ramos. “We maintain that Marine Corps Scout Sniper standard that allows us to go and compete and be successful."
Marines participate in EOD warrior race By Cpl. Keenan Zelazoski
CAMP PENDLETON — Camp Pendleton’s Base Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team and local communities participated in the third annual EOD Warrior 5K run in San Diego on May 25. The event was open to the public and was used to raise money for fallen and wounded EOD service members. EOD technicians perform various duties that include locating, accessing, identifying, rendering safe, neutralizing, and disposing of hazards. During the event, members from military and civilian EOD organization had the option to participate in a 3K relay race in which each team was comprised of three members. Each member donned a 70-pound bomb

suit and ran one kilometer. The Camp Pendleton Base EOD team took third place in the bomb suit relay race. “There is really no way to describe the feeling of running in a bomb suit,” said Sgt. Derek Jonese, an EOD Technician with Camp Pendleton Base EOD. “It’s hot and heavy, but it was an honor for us to participate in this race and pay tribute to our fallen EOD brothers on Memorial Day.” Not only did the participants have to run the kilometer, they also had to transfer the suit to the next
member of the team. It was no easy task, according to Jonese. “It literally looks like a NASCAR pit stop out there,” said Maj. Jose Soto, the Base team coach and officer-in-charge. “The runners come in and their teams help take the suit off and change it over to the next runner as fast as they can.” Each year, EOD communities try to raise awareness of the event to support their wounded comrades. “It was great to see so many participants from the local militaries such as 1st EOD Company and Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in the 5K,” said Soto. According to Jonese, Base EOD challenged all local EOD units to don a bomb suit in the 3K relay race next year to improve the competition. “We challenge anyone to knock us out of the top five,” said Soto. “We’ll be training, and we look forward to competing in honor of our EOD brothers again next year.”

El Camino’s Crawford back home and in no hurry to bolt
sports talk jay paris The Chargers’ Richard Crawford describes his NFL career as a roller-coaster ride. Better buckle-up if wanting to tag along. “I’ve seen the highest of highs and the lowest of lows,’’ said Crawford, a former El Camino High star. Crawford, a cornerback, is going through drills during the team’s offseason workouts. While those with bigger credentials don’t fret their roster spot, Crawford doesn’t have that luxury. Not when battling the likes of Brandon Flowers, Jason Verrett, Steve Williams and others. Does that bother Crawford that his position, and the odds, are stacked against him? Nope. “I just worry about myself,’’ Crawford said. “Santana Moss and DeAngelo Hall taught me that a long time ago: don’t worry about anybody else, just worry about yourself.’’ Crawford mentions Moss and Hall, his ex-Washington teammates. It was with the Redskins that Crawford made his mark and wrecked his knee. “It’s football,’’ he said with a shrug. “You never know what’s going to happen.’’ In 2012 Crawford surprised many by making the Redskins as a seventh-round pick. With his contributions during the season, Crawford was more than an afterthought. He had a 64-yard punt return to help beat the Ravens in overtime. In Week 16, his fumble recovery iced another win. In Week 17, Crawford recorded his first NFL interception off the Cowboys’ Tony Romo, helping Washington claim a playoff berth. Crawford’s solid rookie season was to be a stepping-stone to year two. Instead, a misstep in the third preseason game of 2013 sent Crawford reeling. He tore three ligaments in his knee and has been clawing his way back
since. “It wasn’t really humbling because I was already humble,’’ Crawford said. “But it was a test of my will. How bad did I want to play football and how could I come back from it? It was more mental than physical.’’ And that played to Crawford’s strength. Not many 5-foot-7 players make the NFL and that was Crawford’s listing at El Camino. If you don’t mention him standing on his tiptoes, we won’t either. But countless people told the headstrong Crawford to chase another dream. “I never had any doubts,’’ he said. Just like he never had a growth spurt like his freshman year at Saddleback College — four inches. Take that, you doubters, as the 5-foot-11, 192-pound Crawford eventually transferred to Southern Methodist and then landed in D.C. But he was cut after getting hurt. He returned to Washington’s practice squad, was cut again, and signed late last year with the Chargers. Crawford didn’t see game action, but showed enough in practices that the Chargers coaches have taken a liking to him. “He has a real love for the game,’’ Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. “You love to see a guy like that.’’ Getting noticed — for the right reasons — is TURN TO JAY PARIS ON 18

CCA surf team places first in state championships By Bianca Kaplanek
CARMEL VALLEY — The Canyon Crest Academy boys surf club took first place in short board in Division 2 of the Scholastic Surf Series High School State Championships. Teams from 40 schools from San Diego to Santa Cruz participated in the three-day event at San Onofre State Beach that began May 16. The win was quite a feat for a team that finished last season 0-5. Making it even more impressive is the fact that half of the six-member squad was competing at the high school level for the first time. “We got a lot out of our freshmen, who had limited experience,” coach Jesse Sinclair said. “That we won with three freshmen is pretty powerful.” Sinclair, in his second year as coach, also credits

the success to “a lot of hard work and a lot of involvement.” “I gave them clear instructions and a game plan and they executed it perfectly,” he said. “I told them to be conservative and focus on wave selection.” A late season winter storm provided a big south swell on Saturday, with some challenging surf in the 5- to 7-foot range.

JUNE 14TH ~ FLAG DAY “The Stars and Stripes", "Old Glory", "The Star Spangled Banner"... by any name, the flag of the United States is one of our nation's most widely recognized symbols. Many people do not realize that the design of the flag has been officially modified 26 times since 1777. Prior to the proclamation of the 48-star flag, there was no official arrangement of the stars. This resulted in the various designs officially recognized during our country’s history. Our flag has become a powerful symbol of Americanism, and is proudly flown over many businesses and homes. We hope you will join us in saluting and honoring “Old Glory” and all that it represents on Flag Day and every day!

Water district clamps down on water waste SAN MARCOS — The Vallecitos Water District board of director took action in May in response to Gov. Jerry Brown’s executive order and the State Water Resource Control Board’s emergency urban water conservation regulations. The board voted to limit outdoor irrigation to eight minutes per station, two days per week from June 1 through Oct. 31. This is intended to help the district achieve the 24 percent reduction in water use mandated by the governor. In addition, the board also adopted edicts from the SWRCB’s emergency drought resolution in their new ordinance. The district’s ordinance now re-
stricts watering within 48 hours of a rain event, irrigating street medians and adjacent landscape strips using potable water and requires all leaks to be repaired within 48 hours of notification by the district. The new ordinance can be found at vwd.org/home/ showdocument?id=3800. The district is committed to its community-wide conservation goal aimed at keeping as much water as possible in storage for 2015 and beyond. As a proactive measure, the district initiated drought patrols in its service area. District employees are on duty in the pre-dawn hours and during the day looking for drought ordinance violations. The customer will be contacted to provide assistance with ways to conserve water, water rebates and advice on saving water. Since patrols began May 11, staff documents more than 250 instances of water waste, mostly due to irrigation runoff. Runoff problems can be caused by many factors, usually easily repaired and adjusted. For more information or to schedule a free irrigation audit, visit vwd.org.

Get juiced at Fully Loaded Juicery !"#$%&'( )!*&( +*,"+%-./!*0
deas for columns come to me in many ways and this one was one I will remember. I was hosting a celebration of life party at my house in Leucadia for a deceased friend. The party brought together old friends and our house band from back in the day called The Citrus Revolution. One of their signature songs was called Get Juiced and it just so happens that Kaz and Jacqueline Murphy, who own Fully Loaded Juicery, are also neighbors of mine. They heard the music of Citrus playing and were drawn over to the house where they enjoyed a couple sets of music with us. Conversation followed and here we are. I’ve become a huge fan of their cold-pressed juices and wanted to learn more about them and Fully Loaded. I spoke with Kaz Murphy all about the juicery. You have had an interesting career in the entertainment world prior to opening Fully Loaded. I grew up in a very musical family and I’ve spent a lot of my life writing and making music. My wife, Jacqueline, who is also my partner in Fully Loaded, plays violin and accordion, so we’ve done a lot of performing together also. These days I do some writing for television and independent artists, and plan on releasing a CD of my own material by the end of the summer. My next gig is June 26 at the Summer Fun on the 101 Music Festival on the stage right in front of our shop. Easy gig. How did Fully Loaded come to be? Many years back the opportunity arose for me to be a life coach for peo-
ple with Parkinson’s and paranoid schizophrenics. I would be in out of hospitals with these folks and couldn’t believe the unhealthy food and beverages that they would be served. Being avid juicers since the mid-‘80s, Jacque and I started making recipes for my clients and we found them to be helpful on many levels. About four years ago, we bought a Norwalk coldpressed juice machine and that changed everything. Our friends started to tell us that our recipes not only made them feel amazing, but that they were delicious, so we decided to try them out at the Leucadia Farmers Market. Before long we couldn’t produce enough juice in one day to last through one farmers market. That’s when we decided to open up a shop and here we are.
What exactly is a micro-juicery? We call it a micro-juicery, because like a true microbrewery, you can only get that particular recipe in our shop. You can’t go to Jimbo’s or Seaside and find it. You will never find our juices on store shelves because we will never pasteurize or HPP and that is the only legal way to get your juice on a store shelf. Our juice has a three- to four-day shelf life. How does your process of juicing differ from others and what other differentiators are there at Fully Loaded? Our juice is coldpressed. When you cold press, the temperature of the produce stays cool so that the enzymes and nutrients stay intact. Our juice machine has 21,000 pounds
of hydraulic pressure and after pressing, the pulp is almost as dry as sawdust. We get every possible bit of value out of that pulp. We get three to four pounds of produce in a 16-ounce bottle and there is no pulp in the juice so that the juice absorbs through your stomach lining rather than taking a longer time to go through your entire digestive tract. That way, the valuable health benefits get into your blood stream quicker while everything is still TURN TO LICK THE PLATE ON 18

Another adaptive athlete, Brian Riley, helped Gaal start doing cross fit. “I ended up losing a good amount of weight while doing it in preparation for this ride,” Gaal said. He also coaches the police athletic league and kids basketball. He is getting involved in the Escondido community after living in the area for a few months and hopes to bring a positive message about exercise. “We can all be active, and I want to bring that to the city of Escondido,” Gaal said. His fiancée, Lisa Graves, said she isn’t worried about his physical strength in completing the ride, which is over 2,600 miles. She’s more concerned about traffic on the road. “It’s not the physicality of it, because he has pretty

alive and active, and is therefore the healthiest way to drink juice. The juice recipes are literally fully loaded with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and enzymes. We work closely with local farmers so that some days the produce is picked in the field that morning and in our juice by noon. I counted 10 different juices at Fully Loaded. What are some of your favorites? At Fully Loaded we usually have between 22 and25 recipes at all times. We are seasonal so that four times a year we take a few recipes off the menu and add a few new ones using produce that is in season.

A support vehicle will follow Gaal throughout the journey, which began in Seaport Village Monday morning and will wind throughout the U.S. He will visit 16 states and his final stop is in Arlington, Virginia. Fellow-adaptive athlete Riley will be driving the support vehicle and will help with any flat tires or other support needed along the ride. Local law enforcement throughout the country will escort Gaal some of the way, which will improve his safety. Graves said she fell in love with Gaal the first time she spoke with him, when she interviewed him for a book she was writing at Freedom Station in Balboa Park. “The reason why I fell in love with him, is his deter-
mination,” Graves said. Freedom Station provides temporary lodging to disabled military service members and helps them transition out of the military and back into civilian life. While Gaal’s goal is to raise awareness for wounded servicemen, Graves said the support he received Monday from dozens of Escondido residents helps him flourish. “These people that come, don’t realize what they give to (the wounded service people) when they come like this. It’s not even about a donation. What it makes them feel like to see this, there’s no check that you can write that’s big enough,” Graves said. She will be posting to Gaal’s website, torangaal. com, the entire trip with route updates and progress information. The couple is also in the process of having a home built for them by nonprofit Homes for Our Troops.
things. Like his mastery of chicken, steak and ribs in the kitchen. Crawford, 24, lives with his mother, which makes playing for the Chargers almost like when he was a teenager playing at El Camino. “We do well together,’’ Crawford said, and if you tasted Jacqueline Crawford’s zucchini and sausage dish, you’d know why. “It’s been me and my mom since I was 7 or 8 and
it’s almost like having a roommate. I love my mom and we just sit at home and chill.’’ Crawford is back in familiar haunts and wouldn’t it be something if he’s here on opening day? With that, you may unbuckle your seat belt and exit the ride. Crawford will take it from here. Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter at jparis_sports.

Roberts said those and similar texts were simply staff members joking around but they ultimately led to a situation in which he should have displayed better leadership. “The texts were a joke,” he said. “They were always followed by ‘hahaha.’ I tend to joke with people. I can tell you that I learned from this and my new chief of staff has really implemented some very good policies for all of us in my office about not texting. “When Harold Meza was assigned to the same room with me, after that trip it kind of became verbal joking around. It is not appropriate and we have stopped that verbal joking around. It was done by all sides but as the leader in the office I should have put a stop to it.” Roberts said it wasn’t until recently that he learned there was tension in his office. With his busy schedule and outof-state parents who had some health issues he said he wasn’t in the office frequently during the early part of this year. “There was a lot going on in our office,” he said. “You expect your chief to keep operations flowing

smoothly and obviously that didn’t happen. “Glynnis Vaughn, as my chief of staff, complained to almost everybody else about problems in the office, but not to me,” he added. “I find that very unusual. I actually learned about this from Diane Porter.” Roberts said Porter and Vaughn did not get along. “There were just issues all along,” he added. “Nobody could please Glynnis Vaughn. She was dissatisfied with everybody, including me.” Roberts said he can only speculate as to how things got so bad so fast or why Vaughn and Porter are making what he describes as false allegations to “misrepresent the truth and defame and slander” another person. “If you look at this objectively some people would say (Glynnis Vaughn) didn’t have the skill set to be a chief of staff,” he said. “She had never been a chief of staff before and she didn’t really understand the process. “I can’t get into the minds of these two people but I can read their claims and all the false allegations,” he said. “Your eyes immediately go to the bottom of both claims and you see the dollar amount their

Roberts said the allegations are a distraction but “my eye is on the ball I am focused on my county work.” He said he has already taken steps to move forward. “I have now hired the correct staff for my office and it’s back to business as usual,” he said. His new chief of staff is Mel Millstein, a finalist when Vaughn was hired. “He’s well-qualified,” Roberts said. “In almost six weeks he has right-sided the ship. He really has put into place a smooth operation and we are continuing our extensive level of service to our district.” Roberts said the accusations have hurt his family, which includes his spouse and five adopted foster children between the ages of 6 and 19, some of whom played with Porter’s kids. “They keep asking why they can’t play together anymore,” Roberts said. “My kids have two less friends now.” Efforts to reach Porter’s attorney for comments were unsuccessful.
short boarders all get along really well,” he said. “We communicated, which is vital in team competition. And we all enjoy surfing as a sport and a hobby. So it wasn’t hard to commit to practice.” He said Sinclair is a great coach whose experience in competitive surfing has helped the team.
“There’s a lot he can apply to each and every aspect of the sport,” he said. “We really appreciate him organizing team events. He’s a coach and a guide.” Canyon Crest, in a new division this year, finished the regular season 4-1. “We came through,” Jason said. “We hope next year will be the same.”

Celebrity Cruises makes it a Great Wine Festival taste of wine frank mangio
range County is quickly catching on and catching up to San Diego and Los Angeles with elegant, comprehensive wine events of size and stature. Three such events caught my attention recently, one of which I was able to attend, at the Great Park in Irvine. It was the Celebrity Cruises Great Wine Festival, created by the Legal Aid Society of Orange County to raise funds for low-income individuals, to allow free legal services. There was wine, beer, spirits and lots of gourmet food from chefs with some of the finest restaurants in Orange County. Celebrity Cruises, as the lead sponsor, shared a large, living room VIP atmosphere with Jackson Family Wines of Sonoma. Several oversized sofas and wine bars provided the comfort for Celebrity’s information stations, presenting future cruises around the world. Scott Clifton, Celebrity’s Vice Pres-

ident, Strategic Marketing Team, Scott Clifton pointed out that his cruise line places high value on wine pairing with the highest quality food for his guests. He supports events that are able to put him and his team together with event guests, to present the Celebrity story. A couple of interesting wine booths caught my attention. Zaca Mesa vineyard and winery in Los Olivos, Santa Barbara County, was offering their 2013 Viognier for tasting. This is one
of the best examples of this complex white that originated in the Rhone Valley in the south of France. Fresh tropical fruit permeates the palate. Zaca Mesa is building interest in a river trip through the Rhone Valley in 2016. Another fascinating booth was from the Malibu Coastal Hills, just north of Los Angeles. Its Cabs and Syrahs are winning some important awards internationally and the Malibu Coast is now an official AVA area for growing wine
grapes. The vineyard is Malibu Rocky Oaks, some 2,000 feet above sea level and the city of Malibu. See more at maliburockyoaks. com.

KICKIN’ IT IN PINK Escondido Heat Under-10 girls soccer team will be among those showing pink spirit at this year’s Kickin’ It Challenge, a local soccer tournament sponsored by soccerloco, taking place June 20 and June 21 at Frances Ryan Park, 390 Hidden Trails Road, Escondido.

Founder and Director, Pam Bickel, runs the annual tournament with four other soccer moms all touched in some way by breast cancer. Hundreds of players ages 7 to 18 scrimmage on fields sporting pink yard lines, pink goal nets, pink corner flags and referees using pink whistles, in homage to the symbolic color for breast cancer.

TASTE OF WINE CONTINUED FROM 20
Internet tracks. It was different. It was brilliantly articulate. It was from a friend and master sommelier that I knew from another day. Gino Campbell had returned to San Diego County and was now at PAON, as wine buyer, manager of the wine shop and wine educator. As soon as I saw the weekly lineup of wines at the current wine shop tasting, I knew a special dynamic had swept PAON: the wine choices were fantastic, brilliant selections from Austria, Hungary, France, Italy, Spain, Washington and a tucked away hill along the Central California Coast. No one takes this much care about their offerings, except maybe a master sommelier. And if you think being a master sommelier is easy, two of the best advanced sommeliers in San Diego took their final master exams recently, and failed. Not only is Campbell a master, he graduated with honors at the University of Bordeaux in France. He is in the process of opening a wine school at PAON, “to take the mystery out of wine.” Campbell has scheduled a Burgundy Tasting with a Burgundian expert June 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. for $25 per person. No RSVP. Don’t miss it.

Prices begin at $100 for general admission, with higher levels for VIP privileges. The selected wines have shown premium levels of competition at the San Diego International Wine Competition held earlier this year.
