4th of July Vista show will go on By Steve Puterski
VISTA — The Fourth of July will go on. The City Council approved its continued celebration of Independence Day amid the COVID-19 pandemic, although with several stipulations. Mainly, the city will open Brengle Terrace Park on July 4 to the first 600 vehicles at $20 per car. Residents must remain inside their vehicles during the fireworks celebration to avoid spreading the coronavirus. Councilwoman Amanda Rigby and Councilman John Franklin brought forward the issue during the June 9 meeting to discuss the options for the city and residents. Rigby said the Fourth of July event is one that should not be canceled. “The community seems fired up about it,” Councilman Joe Green said. “I want it to be a day they can celebrate.” Franklin said 7,000 to 8,000 come into the park. He also wondered about social distancing in the park to accommodate more people to enjoy the show. However, Franklin also discussed the vehicle option in an effort to not run afoul of the county’s health orders. “This is the celebration of our independence and I think it’s important to continue a sense of normalcy,” he said. “I trust our residents to gather and follow TURN TO 4TH OF JULY ON 11

‘We’d had enough of waiting’ Protest organized by high schoolers draws hundreds to Escondido City Hall By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — A Black Lives Matter protest in Escondido drew hundreds of residents to City Hall, and it was peaceful from start to finish. The organizers were two high school students. Seventeen-year- olds Grace Lashley and Rayne Cantero from Escondido started by circulating a poster on social media that
called for a nonviolent protest on June 5 to demand “justice for the countless lives cut short because of police brutality in the U.S.” From there, news of the event spread through the community like wildfire. “We wanted to organize this event because we decided we’d had enough of waiting for the older people to do something in support of the Black Lives Matter
movement,” Cantero said. “So, we decided to take the responsibility and organize it ourselves.” The protest was one of countless demonstrations happening in cities across the United States in solidarity with a nationwide Black Lives Matter movement that was reignited recently by the deaths of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis
and Breonna Taylor at the hands of police in Louisville, Kentucky. Around 500 people filled the plaza in front of City Hall waving signs that read, “Black Lives Matter,” “Justice for Breonna Taylor,” “No Justice, No Peace,” “Abolish the Police” and numerous others. The protest remained peaceful as police stayed close by. The crowd chant-
ed, sang, danced, marched and waved at honking cars and onlookers who cheered them on. “I’m very proud of my community for having a good time, while not forgetting our message, which is that we have to fight against injustice,” Lashley said. The nationwide out-

Silvergate Safety Measures Successfully Protecting Residents SAN MARCOS - June 12, 2020 -
• Increased social distancing of at least six feet.
At Silvergate Retirement Residences, the response to the national onset of the COVID-19 crisis was swift and carefully executed. Management worked alongside all of its communities to carefully develop a comprehensive set of protocols following CDC and county health guidelines to keep residents protected and safe from the spread of the coronavirus. Their efforts paid off. To date, none of the Silvergate communities have reported a case of COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic. “We worked quickly to find the best ways to provide our residents with a protective bubble from the virus,” said Joan Rink-Carroll, Executive Director for Silvergate San Marcos. “We knew we had to manage the risk of exposure to our residents and staff with enhanced safety procedures, increased social distancing, heightened disinfecting, and of course testing once available.”
• Group activities limited to less than 10 people, while maintaining social distancing.
Enhanced Safety Precautions at Silvergate The comprehensive set of protocols and precautions enacted by Silvergate has given residents and their families the peace of mind they need to weather the worries of the coronavirus pandemic. Those precautions include: • Daily temperature readings for nearly 500 residents and staff members. • Restricted, essential-only visitor access. • Screening of all residents, staff and visitors for travel history and recent illness.
• Staggered dining room mealtimes and/or meals offered in resident rooms. • Increased sanitation to all high-touch surfaces throughout the community. • Augmented staff education concerning health protocols and procedures. • Personal protective equipment required for all caregivers including, face masks, hand washing, etc. • Negative COVID-19 testing results required prior to new resident move-in. “I’ve been incredibly impressed by the preventative steps Silvergate has taken to keep all of us safe from this virus,” said Merrio Izor, who has been living at the senior living community in San Marcos since the beginning of the year. “Not only are the staff checking in on us all the time, they’ve modified our routines so that we’re still able to enjoy everyday life without feeling pinned in. Of course, we’re practicing socially distancing together, but I can still see my friends, enjoy activities and connect with my family without worrying about the virus. I trust the team here.” Silvergate Testing Surpasses Requirements Silvergate continues to enact additional safety measures as they become available, even beyond those required by the CDC. Beginning in June, all Silvergate communities will be
adding daily pulse oximeter readings to their arsenal of safety screening measures. These simple tests measure blood oxygen levels and can help identify asymptomatic carriers of the virus who are not experiencing a fever, which is an important aspect of early detection of a COVID-19 infection. Silvergate Keeps Virus Outside Its Doors With no reported coronavirus cases to date, Silvergate’s success at keeping its residents safe has given other local seniors renewed confidence about transitioning to retirement living. Many seniors had delayed their search for assisted living solutions due to the outbreak of the virus and state-imposed stay-at-home orders. As those restrictions begin to lift, many seniors are becoming more comfortable touring senior living properties, like Silvergate where they have a proven safety record in the midst of the pandemic. To help accommodate different levels of comfort with venturing out into the public, Silvergate now offers multiple ways in which to connect with their communities. New virtual tours and videos are available online. Live “FaceTime” tours also are being offered. For those who are comfortable, privately scheduled, in-person tours allow family members and prospective residents to experience the community directly. Silvergate San Marcos offers independent living, assisted living and memory care accommodations.

EUHSD feeding kids this summer By Tigist Layne
ESCONDIDO — Escondido Union High School District’s Nutrition Services program announced a summer meal plan in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service that will provide free meals to kids in Escondido. The program, which started June 1, provides free breakfast and lunch to any child in the community 18 or under. EUHSD Superintendent Dr. Anne Staffieri told The Coast News that 70% of student households in the district qualify for free or reduced lunch. “EUHSD is committed to the safety and security of all students and their families,” Staffieri said. “Meal distribution is a critical service for the community. With help from Student Nutrition staff and volunteers, the Summer Meal Program continues to be well received.” Meals are distributed Mondays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Orange Glen, Escondido and San Pasqual high schools. A total of seven breakfasts and seven lunches are possible by participating in these two meal distributions per week. Staff and volunteers hand out meals drivethrough style and wear masks and gloves to keep families safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Summer feeding in Escondido Union High School District is already off to a strong start,” Staffieri said. “More than 1,500 students were served a three-day supply of breakfasts and lunches on Monday, June 1, and more than 2,300 students were served a four-day supply of breakfasts and lunches on Thursday, June 4.” The new initiative comes after EUHSD wrapped up its recent meal distribution program that helped families during the campus closures due to COVID-19 in the months of March, April and May. During that time, employees and volunteers provided meals to at least 2,800 children every weekday. In the first 13 days of the distribution, more than 46,000 meals were given out at all distribution sites combined. With the need for consistent and nutritious meals still prevalent, the summer meals program aims to be an extension of the COVID-19 meal distribution efforts to assist in meeting food insecurity needs for students and families. The summer meals program will continue through Aug. 7 and is available to all kids in the community.

Jobs, reopening, seniors on Vista council agenda By Steve Puterski
VISTA — Looking forward, the city of Vista is preparing resources and information to help ease the burden for businesses to reopen and residents to find jobs. San Diego County has slowly reopened in line with the rest of the state, but Councilwoman Amanda Rigby brought forward a discussion during the council’s May 26 meeting on how to better serve businesses and residents who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The council already approved allowing businesses, especially restaurants, to use parking lots and right-
of-way roads as a way to expand their capacity. Rigby and the rest of the council, however, are concerned over the staggering unemployment. Rigby noted the 92081 Zip code was one of the top 10 hardest-hit areas in the county due to the pandemic. So, the city will incorporate listings for jobs and unemployment resources, through a website link, in its special business edition of Our Vista Magazine. “I’m worried some of our business will not survive or have not survived this,” Rigby said. “Is there any way we can help our constituents with unemployment? Families are devastated.”
Councilwoman Corinna Contreras said the unemployment rate is rising near 30% and constituents are struggling to meet rent payments, utilities and other expenses. Additionally, businesses are struggling to meet rent payments, but the March state order did not allow for evictions for 90 days. Still, once those 90 days expire, landlords will be seeking payment. City Attorney Darold Pieper said, however, it is unlikely landlords will have much recourse in the coming months as the courts are massively overwhelmed and will only be hearing criminal cases once they reopen. So, evictions through
the courts are unlikely for the time being, but he said if tenants are evicted or leave, those landlords may have trouble filling those spaces. “I think things will sort themselves out,” Pieper said. “Landlords are going to be hurt, but they are going to have to accommodate. Even when they can access the courts, where are they going to get new tenants? Because you can evict a tenant doesn’t mean you’ll find one who can pay rent.” Also, the council discussed expanding cool zones as summer approaches. The council zeroed in on seniors, along with others who do not have air conditioning in their residences.
County COVID-19 death toll passes 300 By City News Service
REGION — The COVID-19 death toll has passed the 300 mark in San Diego County. On June 10, county health officials reported 108 new COVID-19 cases and four additional deaths involving individuals ranging in age from 27 to 88, raising the county totals to 8,837 cases and 305 deaths. Dr. Wilma Wooten, the county’s public health officer, said that 291 of the 305 people who died had underlying medical conditions. Since Tuesday, the county logged another 3,854 tests, raising the cumulative total to 203,579. The 108 positive tests recorded Wednesday comprise 3% of the total, same as the 14-day rolling average for positive tests. Area hospitals currently are treating 373 COVID-19 infected patients, 153 of whom are in intensive care. San Diego County officials also announced on June 10 that indoor movie theaters will be allowed to reopen Friday, June 12, joining bars, zoos, community swimming pools and hotels in the next step forward to restarting the regional economy, while stressing the importance of continuing to take precautions to protect against COVID-19. County Supervisor Greg Cox said movie theaters will follow similar occupancy rules to churches, with a maximum of 25% of the room’s capacity or 100 customers and typical san-
itizing and facial covering requirements in queues in effect. Over the weekend, the number of Hispanic or Latino residents who have died from the illness surpassed the number of white residents, representing 43.1%
of all deaths. White residents represent 42.7% of the deaths. According to a 2017 demographics profile from the county’s Health and Human Services Agency, the region’s percentage of Hispanic or Latino residents
While the senior center is closed, the council discussed potential partnerships with restaurants and other possibilities to increase the presence of the zones. In addition, they also spoke about how to connect with seniors through physical distancing events or even a drive-by dinner service with the council acting as servers. “I’d like to see how much space we can find as soon as possible,” Councilman Joe Green said. “I love the idea of a physical distance dining event for seniors. Even them just driving by in their car and saying hi to show that we love them.”

ESCONDIDO — An allegedly drugged driver accused in the deaths of a woman, her boyfriend and her two young grandsons in Escondido pleaded not guilty June 10 to charges of murder and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. Ashley Rene Williams, 28, of Escondido is charged in the deaths of Carmela Camacho, 50; Abel Valdez, 33; Yovanny Felix, 10; and Emmanuel Riva, 11. The couple and the boys were walking in the area of Oak Hill Drive and San Pasqual Valley Road when Williams’ northbound 2014 Mazda3 struck them shortly before 8:30 p.m. on May 5, Lt. Scott Walters said. Valdez and the older child died at the scene. Medics took Camacho and Yovanny to Palomar Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead. Williams was transported to Scripps Memorial Hospital for treatment of moderately serious injuries. Deputy District Attorney Laurie Hauf alleged Williams was under the influence of an unspecified drug and was using her cellphone at the time of the crash. The prosecutor also said Williams was driving on a suspended license due to a previous DUI drug conviction. Williams is being held on $1 million bail.

San Marcos approves temporary zoning rules to boost businesses By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos City Council met on May 26 and approved an urgency ordinance adopting temporary zoning and development regulations to make it easier for businesses to reopen safely and serve customers while adhering to public health guidelines. The ordinance temporarily changes the rules regarding outdoor uses and allows restaurants, retail stores and other activities to be expanded to parking
lots and sidewalk patios. These regulations include establishing temporary outdoor and drivethrough pickup areas, allowing to-go and on-site outdoor consumption of alcohol, allowing temporary banner signs and permitting outdoor group assemblies in parking lots. “We heard from quite a few businesses that they wouldn’t be at capacity in their existing dining room areas or brewery tasting room areas or retail areas because of the social dis-
tancing requirements,” said Tess Sangster, Economic Development Director for the city. “So, we wanted to make it as easy as possible for these businesses to start operating again.” Sangster told The Coast News that they have received applications from six businesses shortly after the ordinance went into effect. The application can be found online where business owners will be asked to answer a few questions and submit a basic site plan
of how they would like to use their outdoor spaces. The permit process is free and will typically take about two business days to be approved. “People are really happy about it,” Sangster said. “Businesses are already facing an uphill battle as they get back to business and we are hoping to ease that process as much as we can.” The plan also takes fitness centers into account and, once these establishments are allowed to re-
open under phase 3 of the statewide guidelines, gyms will be able to use parking lots and put some of their equipment outside. Churches and religious organizations can also apply to hold gatherings outside and in parking lots with social distancing requirements in place. Sangster said that these regulations will be in effect throughout the stayat-home order. Once those orders have been lifted, the city will address how things will go back to normal.

Of course! Black Lives Matter
This rage is not just about racism, but also economics
or decades, academics warned that the ever-widening income gap in America could have dire consequences for California and the rest of the nation unless someone did something about it. Nothing happened. Then came the wholly unjustified police killing of the African American Minneapolis resident George Floyd, touching off protests from coast to coast, from near the Canadian border to near the Mexican border. The protests broke out in Seattle and Phoenix, in Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco, Miami, Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia — almost everywhere with significant minority populations. These began peacefully. But then crowds began expressing pent-up anxiety and rage left from the 11week coronavirus lockdown, with its loss of jobs and continuing spread of the plague itself. Both hit minorities far harder than whites largely because of their vastly contrasting living conditions and educational levels. Over a week of steady demonstrations, looters eventually began exploiting the protests. Some of their raids looked well organized, likely via social media. They went after high-end shopping areas in San Francisco and Emeryville, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and the Santa Monica Promenade. In Santa Monica on Sunday, May 31, legitimate demonstrators and looters split sharply, soon conducting their activities blocks apart. On swank Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles Saturday, May 30, and on Santa Monica’s Broadway the next afternoon, looters literally trampled groups of legitimate peaceful protesters trying to divert them
california focus thomas d. elias from storefronts. The thieves went after goods from sneakers to sweaters, jeans to jewelry, TVs to computers and cellphones. The booty so packed their cars, SUVs and pickups that looters themselves almost could not fit in with it. Look for much of that easy-to-sell stuff in swap meets across America. Outside some brandname sneaker stores, the bandits’ vehicles lined up in what seemed a systematic pattern, police so outnumbered in many places that they could not safely intervene. Some conservatives including President Trump soon tagged “Antifa” as the culprit, with no evidence. Of course, no one knows exactly who Antifa is, so it’s a convenient, anonymous scapegoat. But there’s much more at work here than the usual “outside agitator” suspects, to whom conservatives appear to be applying the Antifa tag, after a group that has not been very active for the last few years. Doing that intentionally downplays and ignores the legitimate grievances of African Americans, who have time after time seen police injure or kill unarmed persons of their race. It bypasses at least one legitimate question: Why are police trained in the knee-on-neck technique used by Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin to kill Floyd while three other cops stood by as Floyd moaned that he could not breathe? But there are deeper
issues. California exemplifies them, Los Angeles in particular. Said one businessman who recently relocated to the posh L.A. district of Bel Air, “It’s been hard for me to believe that I can live in luxury here, but less than five miles away are some of the poorest people in America.” Academics have noted that contrast for years, sometimes warning it could lead to violence. The New York-based Urban Institute, for one example, reported that between 1963 and 2016 families near the bottom of wealth distribution (those at the 10th percentile) went from averaging no wealth to being about $1,000 in debt, while families near the top (at the 90th percentile and above) saw their wealth increase fivefold between 1963 and 2016. That’s compounded inequality. Long before the Floyd murder, then, there was plenty of inequality and reason for minority rage. The rage is now in the open. That’s why it was no coincidence when, at least in California, protesters and their piggy-backing looters headed to high-end areas. With a long, hot summer ahead, this outbreak may lapse, but its causes won’t go away. California can hope this is not the start of the class war some scholars warned of, but the only way to make sure of that is to do something about the blatant inequalities in economics, policing, housing and many other areas. That could lead to a guaranteed monthly income for all, or something else. But there must be movement, or the troubles may only be starting. Email Thomas Elias at firstname.lastname@example.org
f our response is “All Lives Matter,” we are totally missing the point. Yes, all lives do matter, but only one ethnic group is being so discriminated against that they are literally dying in the street in this country. It’s time we admitted that black people’s slave labor built this country’s wealth. It’s easy to build a world-dominating economy when labor is free. However, the black community has had no share in this. Even when slavery was abolished (America being one of the last countries to do so), segregation and Jim Crow laws continued to keep black Americans from sharing in this economic success. Even today, especially today, the inbuilt racism pervasive in our society continues the vicious cycle set up by lack of good schools, well-paid jobs and decent health care for the black community. Unless we accept that we have a societal problem, where people are prejudged solely based on the color of their skin, where black people are assumed to be criminals before the facts are known, or killed before they can defend themselves, we have no hope for a just society. The problem is glaringly apparent when we look at the police force and the way they impose law and order.
Over the years, police have become increasingly militarized, and made to believe in the “warrior” mentality. Too often they shoot first and ask questions later, more so when they are confronted by a black person. You must
read the appalling statistics to see the racial bias. Is the horrific public killing of George Floyd and senseless police-involved shooting of Breonna Taylor, a young, black emergency technician, a myth? Is the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, a young black jogger hunted and
killed by a white man and his son, a myth? Was calling the police on Christian Cooper, a black Harvard graduate because he asked a white woman to keep her dog on a leash in Central Park a myth? If these incidents do not represent “white privilege,” I’m not sure what does. It is no wonder that the world is outraged by the recent killing of unarmed black Americans in the past three months. Senseless killings all based on racial prejudice that black men (and women) are inherently criminals. White people need to own this problem since they built the system that continues to repress the black community and they need to fix it. As Banksy (an anonymous artist and social critic) rightly put it: “It’s like a broken pipe flooding the apartment of the people living downstairs. The faulty system is making their life a misery, but it’s not their job to fix it. They can’t, no one will let them in the apartment upstairs. “This is a white-people problem, and if white people don’t fix it, then someone will have to come upstairs and kick the door in.” Narima Lopes Carlsbad

Americans hesitant to travel, survey says
hit the road e’louise ondash
he COVID-19 pandemic has done more than make people ill; it has changed our way of life, especially when it comes to travel. A recent survey by FinanceBuzz, an informational website that provides tips, advice on making financial decision, gives us a snapshot of Americans’ attitudes about travel. FinanceBuzz surveyed 1,500 adults 18 years and older “who comprise a nationally representative sample of Americans,” on May 13. Here is what it found: • Nearly half of respondents said they don’t plan to fly in the coming year. • As for summer travel, 56% have canceled their trips, 19% have changed plans and 25% are holding off making plans. • Despite shelter-inplace rules, 36% of male respondents say they’ll travel anyway; 26% of women will do likewise. • Reasons for canceling or changing this summer’s travel plans include health concerns (69%); travel restrictions (50%); and financial concerns (42%). Bottom line, the survey concludes, is that, “Until a vaccine is found, companies ranging from airlines to hotels to restaurants to travel credit cards will need to find ways to adapt to the new normal.” When we finally get around to traveling again, what can we expect? Travel writer Adam H. Graham has pondered this question and takes a stab at imagining the future of travel on the AFAR website. There’s no doubt about one thing, Graham writes: Face masks will continue to be essential and they will be necessary to board an airplane. Lucky for us, there are plenty of styles available — both fun, funny and fashionable. Graham also envisions the use of more touchless technology like phone apps to open hotel rooms and operate elevators; make payments;
REGION — As San Diego slowly moves toward Stage 3 of reopening the local economy amidst the COVID-19 health pandemic, many are looking to antibody testing to gauge both personal exposures to the virus, and the region’s level of herd immunity. And local companies are meeting the call — health care diagnostics company Genalyte has partnered with the San Diego Blood Bank to provide the tests, more technically referred to as SARS-CoV-2 Multi-Antigen Serology Panels. Claudine Van Gonka, a spokeswoman with the San Diego Blood Bank, called the partnership “an extension of our mission.” “We’re proud to offer greater access to antibody testing for San Diegans,” she said. The tests are meant to detect whether an individual has potentially been ex-
posed to the virus. It specifically tests for IgM and IgG antibodies that can remain in the body after someone has recovered, and according to a news release issued by Genalyte, “(IgG antibodies) are believed to be a marker of sustained immunity, although the duration of immunity to SARS-CoV-2 needs further study.” According to a report released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the tests should not be used to determine immunity at this time, but more to provide information “about populations that may be immune and potentially protected.” The report states that although the presence of anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies “likely indicates at least some degree of immunity, until the durability and duration of immunity are established, it cannot be assumed that individuals with truly positive antibody test results are protected from

future infection.” The report suggests that those who test positive through serologic testing but have been asymptomatic and “without a recent history of a COVID-19 compatible illness,” should still continue to follow general recommendations to protect from infection. Regardless, according to Genalyte CEO Cary Gunn, the company’s tests have over a 99% accuracy rate, and a low false-positive rate. The serology panel has a positive predictive value of 84% — meaning that less than 1.6 in 10 individuals tested will have a false positive outcome. This is based on specificity of 99%, and the approximate prevalence of the virus in San Diego of about 5%. The testing is available at all of the blood bank’s six sites in San Diego County, Tuesday through Thursday. It is now mandated by federal law that private insur-
ance companies cover the cost of such tests; without insurance, it costs $149. The tests are meant for those who no longer have symptoms and have not had symptoms for at least 14 days. Results are available within 24-48 hours. Individuals can sign up for an appointment at: https://www.genalytecovid19.com. Van Gonka said that the organization’s headquarters off Gateway Center Avenue has carried out approximately 60 tests a day since testing began in early May, with the other five sites doing around 30 a day. The blood bank has the capacity to test up to 1,000 patients per day. The San Diego Blood Bank is also urging people who have had the virus and been symptom-free for 28 days to donate convalescent plasma — which is currently being investigated as a potential treatment option for COVID-19.

fornia awarded the City a $15 million California Proposition 1E Grant. Staff are working, with the assistance of the San Diego County Water Authority, to sponsor legislation in 2021 to extend the term of the Prop. 1E funding. If the legislative extension is successful, the California Department of Water Resources has determined that the grant may be used on a project that mitigates the seismic issues, even though the original award was for dam replacement.” The council agreed to further discuss these options at future meetings.
Also on the agenda was the Lindley Reservoir Replacement Project, which will replace a 2 million-gallon water reservoir near Hubbard Avenue and North Ash Street with two 1.5 million-gallon reservoirs. The reservoir, constructed in the early 1950s, is deteriorating and in need of urgent replacement. At the meeting, the council awarded contracts for $12.8 million to Pacific Hydrotech Corp. and for $1.15 million for construction management services and $169,400 for consulting services from Stantec Consulting Services Inc.

Beloved Rincon Middle School music teacher retires ESCONDIDO — After a 25-year career at Rincon Middle School in Escondido and in the middle of a pandemic, Roger Anderson barely squeezed in a band festival for his advanced students on March 7 before San Diego County closed its school doors. And then he retired. Anderson said he will miss the high-fives and fist bumps that he gave his kids after a job well done; he will miss the daily interactions with his 180-200 students, every day for 25 years. His leadership style provided structure and encouragement in deeply caring ways. “They need a leader that calls them out, and at the same time connects to

them as individuals,” Anderson said. “The trick is to push them, whether they like it or not, beyond their current limitations and make them see that risk and momentary failures are part of the learning process — push
them beyond themselves in order to create a better self than they ever thought possible.” Anderson’s goal is to to create leaders and self-starters as well as better human beings. “You are an amazing
teacher Roger,” said Dr. Luis Rankins-Ibarra, superintendent of Escondido Union School District. “I cannot believe the great work you get out of these students year after year.” But despite his retirement, Anderson has no plans to leave music. As an accomplished jazz pianist, flutist and artist, he never stops performing and collaborating. His choral group, the Roger Anderson Chorale, explores all genres and traditions of music, collaborating with dance companies such as the Performing Arts Workshop, H2O and Devine Desi Dance.

Restaurant sets fundraiser Escondido pet store ordered to stop puppy sales after manager dies in crash By Tigist Layne
By Tigist Layne
SAN MARCOS — Local restaurant Landon’s East Meets West is raising money to support the family of its former general manager Angela Cryan, a 34-year-old single mother of six who passed away in a car accident on May 24. Cryan was the general manager of Landon’s, a global-fusion restaurant that opened in June 2019 in San Marcos’ Old California Restaurant Row. She started working at the restaurant as a server before quickly climbing the ladder to become a general manager. Co-workers describe Cryan as “fiercely independent,” a fitting title for someone who obtained a college degree, held multiple jobs and was pursuing her MBA, all while being a single mom. “She had so much courage to bring up six children and still do everything she wanted to do and take pride in all of it,” said Vinnie Tiru, a managing partner at Landon’s. “She had an amazing spirit. I was always so impressed by her.” Cryan is survived by her six children: A 4-year old daughter, a 9-year-old son, an 11-year old daughter, a 12-year-old son, a 14-year-old daughter and a 17-year-old daughter. To help support her children during this time and beyond, Landon’s launched a GoFundMe that has raised more than $12,000 in just one week. “The children are what motivated us the most to start it, we want them to be happy, and they don’t deserve what happened to them,” Tiru said. “The oldest one is about to
go to college and I want to make sure that her dream is fulfilled and that she can go to college. I don’t want to break that commitment to her mom.” A commitment, Tiru said, he made to Cryan the day before the accident. “Only a day before she passed away, I talked to her for an hour about her daughter and how she wants to go to college, and Angela asked me to help her daughter find the right school and help her decide what to study and support her in any way I could,” said Tiru. “So that’s what I’m going to do.” Landon’s has also promised to match up to $10,000 of the total donations received in an effort to cover funeral expenses, costs associated with Angela’s home, the children’s tuition expenses and anything else they can contribute to. To donate, please visit GoFundMe.com. Landon’s is currently open for dinein, take-out and delivery. “It makes me extremely happy to see what our community can do. It’s a beautiful thing,” Tiru said. “Angela was a selfless individual who did everything for everybody, and we would do anything for her and her family.”
ESCONDIDO — Two pet stores, including one in Escondido, were issued temporary restraining orders on June 3 by San Diego County Superior Court Judge Eddie Sturgeon to stop selling puppies. The ruling comes after Broadway Puppies in Escondido and Pups & Pets in Santee were recently cited by San Diego Humane Society’s Humane Law Enforcement for illegally selling puppies that were sourced from puppy mills. Both stores were issued multiple citations for violations of failing to partner with a rescue that has a valid cooperative agreement with at least one public or private shelter, as cited in AB 485, California’s ban on the retail sale of dogs, cats and rabbits. The lawsuit was filed by attorney Bryan Pease, who is representing several customers, as well as nonprofit organizations Animal Protection and Rescue League, Companion Animal Protection Society and Not One Animal Harmed. Pease said that the stores, which are both owned by David Salinas,

Arrest made in Vista shooting VISTA — Authorities announced an arrest June 5 in connection with a shooting that left a San Marcos woman gravely wounded last month. Members of the U.S. Marshals Service took Marvin Meyers Wight, 40, into custody in the 500 block of Big Bend Way in Oceanside on June 4, according to sheriff’s officials. Wight allegedly shot Kristina Montalvo, 34, who was found about 6:15 a.m. May 23 in a vehicle in the 400 block of Sycamore Avenue in Vista, suffering from a gunshot wound, Lt. Thomas Seiver said. Montalvo remains hospitalized in critical condition, he said. Officials have released no suspected motive for the shooting and have not disclosed the relationship, if any, between the victim and suspect. Wight was booked into county jail in Vista on suspicion of attempted murder. He was being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for June 12. — City News Service

have been fraudulently labeling puppy mill puppies as “rescues” to evade California law against selling non-rescue dogs in pet shops. Humane Law Enforcement Chief Bill Ganley told The Coast News that he hopes the public can learn from this case because the health and safety of these animals depend on it. “The goal of AB 485 and a new proposed law that we’re backing, AB 2152, is to stop this stuff from happening,” Ganley said. “The message we hope the public
receives from this is to adopt from shelters if you can. If there’s a specific breed that you want, go to a reputable breeder. Don’t buy from retail stores because they ship puppies in from out-of-state, large-scale operations and you don’t know the history of that animal.” The judge’s ruling also requires Missouri-based Pet Connect Rescue, Inc., which is a fake rescue brokering puppies from puppy mills and has allegedly been providing puppies to the two pet stores, to stop doing business in California
unless in compliance with California law, according to Pease. A sign currently posted on the door of Broadway Puppies in Escondido says that the store is “temporarily closed.” George Najjar, the attorney representing Salinas, said that both stores will comply with the order until the next court date, which is June 18. At that time, they will attempt to show why the order should not remain in effect until the rest of the lawsuit is heard.
plies, San Diego County Supervisor Greg Cox said. The majority of businesses still closed will be able to reopen Friday, as long as they meet the county’s reopening guidelines. Statewide protocols for
those businesses were released late last week. Wooten, the county’s public health officer, said Monday that an expected spike from restaurants reopening for dine-in service two weeks ago has not yet
occurred, to the credit of business owners who followed sanitation and social distancing protocols. “I like to think our restaurant industry has done a phenomenal job,’’ she said.

Running, drinking and eating with the Los Guapos Trail Runners lick the plate david boylan
f you have been reading Lick the Plate for any amount of time, you are probably aware that I’ve always tried to balance being an athlete and, well, a plate licker with a thirst for an occasional beer. Good thing for the athletic part, and it’s still a mix I strive for. Running and drinking goes way back but was formally organized around 1938 by a group of British soldiers who called themselves “Hash House Harriers.” It’s a fascinating history that I would encourage you to read up on. My brother Michael Boylan, a former distance guy, track coach and Harrier participant, gave me a thorough education on it. In a nutshell their mantra is to promote physical fitness, get rid of weekend hangovers and acquire a good thirst and satisfy it with a beer, sometimes in large quantities. I came across a local group of like-minded but less hard-core folks who call themselves the Los Guapos Trail Runners (LGTR) who frequent area brewer-

ies post-run and add some food to the mix. I asked a few of them to take over the column this week and they gladly obliged. I’ll start out with Amber Self, who organized this and is part of the family that owns Sunshine Gardens in Encinitas. “I am picking Culver Beer Co and they are located in Carlsbad. I picked them because they have a really good Mexican Lager that is especially great after a run! They also have a deli inside their brewery called Locally Toasted. My go-to sandwich is their Quitting Cold Turkey and if I want
something a little different, I'll get their Pesto Turkey sandwich. It's always a bonus to get good food after the run too.” Thanks Amber, a new discovery for me! Scott Johnston is a local mortgage broker and also part of the LGTRs. Given that their trail runs are usually in Vista or San Marcos, his pick is Belching Beaver in Vista. “I like the large outside area with chairs, fire pits and games and beer and food can be ordered at the counter outside. It’s also dog and kid friendly. I prefer a hoppy West Coast-style single IPA and their Hop High-
way does the trick. It’s a West Coast IPA style, which originally put San Diego on the map as a craft brew paradise. I’m a pescatarian so I like places which have good vegetarian and fish options, which they do. The fried cauliflower and leeks with honey ponzu, fried Brussels sprouts with cherry balsamic and blue cheese, fish taco or mahi burrito and any of their salads are all spot on. I run between 30 and 80 miles a week, so what I put in my body has to be worthy of my effort.” I don’t run nearly that far but still agree with the concept, thanks Scott!
Jennifer Jacobs met her husband in this group six years ago and they are still going at it together. With twin toddlers, they still love spending their date nights with the Guapos. “My favorite after-run spot is Wild Barrel Brewing in San Marcos, which seems to excel in every beer style. I gravitate toward their Hazy IPAs, which are perfectly balanced and juicy. Since I eat mostly vegan, eating at the breweries can be a challenge. I love to eat at the vegan pop-up Harmless Eats after a run, which was at Raging Mead and Cider most Friday nights. Their buffalo “chickn” sandwich with a refreshing cider is the perfect reward for a grueling run.” I really need to get up to speed on some of these breweries … they sound fabulous, thanks Jenn. Systems Administrator and leader of the Guapo’s Elena Ibarra had a hard time narrowing her breweries down with all the solid options. She made it happen though. “One brewery that comes to mind is Aztec Brewery (in Vista) as they often have local musicians and food trucks in the parking lot. Close to this brewery is a pizza spot called Leucadia Pizzeria and when there are no food trucks, we all like to pitch in and order some delicious pizza. A couple of our
favorites are Margherita for our vegetarian runners and the Meat Combo pizza for the meat eaters. We usually dance or sing depending on the music. I’ve tried most of their beers, but a couple of my favorites are Hibiscus Wheat and Macaroon Nut Brown.” I’m a big fan of Leucadia Pizzeria, Elena! Realtor Dave Hyman wraps things up by taking a more people focused approach to his content. “When you run with friends, it’s a free feeling combined with camaraderie and a sense of healthiness. When you run with Los Guapos, you get to throw in a touch of culture, good conversation and a couple of pints of beer. We Guapos try to keep it interesting by visiting a different microbrewery after each of our Friday runs. In North County, there’s no lack of them, but we do repeat a few, time after time. One of our favorite repeats is Indian Joe Brewing, in Vista. The beer quality is great and there’s every type of brew, the atmosphere is intimate yet spacious, the food truck is first class and to top off the experience, they have live music upstairs. Friday nights rock.” I like your style, Dave. For more information on Los Guapos Trail Runners, search their group on Facebook at Los Guapos Trail Run.
Filling the duffel bag of motherhood
hen I gave birth to my first child, I received a clever congratulatory card with a picture of an open briefcase containing a pacifier and baby bottle tucked in it. I laughed at the silly, far-fetched image. I’m not laughing anymore. I reached absent-mindedly into my purse last week to retrieve my keys and pulled out one small, soggy sock, Barbie’s sun-

small talk jean gillette glasses and a half-eaten Tootsie Roll Pop. The discovery of the moldy sock goaded me into a badly needed purse-cleaning. As I turned it over, that which didn’t stick to the remains of the Tootsie Roll Pop included a baseball-sized wad of candy wrappers and pediatrician receipts, three broken ear swabs, one of Batman’s arms, an unraveled Raffi tape and a plastic cup with mold at the bottom. Everything in the purse was nicely powdered with the crumbs of what were once half a dozen snack crackers. I found that my daughter had used half of my checkbook for a doodle pad, but, of course, I found no money. Truly, some of my best chuckles over the past few years include the unexpected things my husband and I have pulled out of pockets and purses. In church, instead of my tithe envelope, I once whipped out a very small pair of panties with the Little Mermaid on the
front. Much like that once-funny greeting card, my husband unwittingly smuggled Barbie across state lines, discovering her as he opened his briefcase to make a presentation. My daughter was tickled at having given Dad such a swell surprise. I graduated to the justsmaller-than-a-duffel-bagsize purse on the arrival of my children. I thought it an efficient effort to eliminate the need for both diaper bag and purse. We dispensed with diapers a year ago, but somehow I have been unable to de-escalate. My purse has become an annex for the county dump. One consolation is that my children are never tempted to litter. They just toss any waste material into Mom’s big black bag and give me that “Didn’t I do good?” grin. Of course, I must tell them they did, but I sense growing disaster here. When the kids were still babies, I thought nothing of slamming two bottles of formula, two diapers, an extra pacifier, sunscreen, booties, wet wipes, a bib and three jars of strained bananas in alongside all the other things one must carry in a purse for daily
existence. I usually was prepared for any emergency, and with continued chiropractic help, I do hope to be able to stand up straight again someday. It won’t be soon, however. These days I have become, purse or no purse, the one to whom everything migrates from little hands. Whatever our agenda or destination, my children will not leave the front porch without an armload of stuffed critters, toys, books, crayons and collectibles. They also collect flyers, cards, handouts and free newspapers as we progress through our daily errands. But carry it home or bring it out of the car? I think not, Mumsie. You get the feeling they may have been royalty in their last several lives, followed around by a full staff of handservants. Meanwhile, I will continue to dream my little dreams. They are filled with slim envelope purses into which I need only put a credit card and compact. Or I could have some of those handservants.

Welcome to Manhattan: The perfect summer cocktail Cheers! North County
he Manhattan is the perfect summer cocktail. Named after the New York City borough where it was invented, supposedly, though probably not, for a party in support of presidential candidate Samuel Tilden, the Manhattan is a cocktail containing whiskey, traditionally rye, sweet vermouth and bitters. It’s garnished with a dark maraschino cherry. It is a classic drink. Simple, yet with infinite variations. I hear you, margarita people. I know the last few remaining Tom Collins enthusiasts are getting all riled up somewhere, and I’m ignoring you if you’re waving any sort of spritzer at me with your drinking-atbrunch hand. It’s summertime, and while whiskey isn’t normally featured on the front page of hip magazines (do they still make magazines?) it is an overlooked classic. This is how you make it. First, choose your whiskey. I prefer a quality, yet

affordable whiskey like Maker’s Mark or Buffalo Trace. You’ll be adding flavors so no need to go for the fancy stuff on the top shelf, but you still want quality because the end product depends on it. Also, you’ll want something with a nice label so your Instagram photos look good. Next, round out the rest of your ingredients. Buy a bottle of sweet vermouth, which is a fortified wine. It is very, very important to
make sure you buy sweet and not dry vermouth. The labels can be confusing, and it will make for a jarring taste if you mix them up. Many vermouth labels use red to indicate sweetness or green to indicate it is dry. There are some craft versions out there, but your basic bottle of Martini & Rossi will do just fine. Spend 10 bucks, toss it in the fridge and it will always be there when you need it. It will seemingly never dis-

appear, and when you move someday, the remains of the bottle will wave goodbye. You need bitters. Bitters are important. They are a concentrated collection of herbs and spices that add flavor and aroma. Just a dash can change the entire complexion of your drink. Angostura is the best known brand and has been producing their specific blend of herbs since 1824. I like the classic, but they also offer an orange in-
fusion that can really spice up your cocktail. See what I did there? You can also make your own and infuse them with whatever flavor suits your fancy. Search for “bitters recipe” on Pinterest and be prepared for a weekslong slide into the rabbit hole of craft bitters making. Lastly, you put it all together. Tradition says to mix it over ice. Stir and strain it into a chilled cocktail glass (think miniature martini glass), drop in the cherry, and serve neat (without ice). However, like Manhattan the city, the cocktail doesn’t like to be defined. It can also be served in a lowball glass on the rocks (with ice), with or without garnish or, if you prefer, and this is really crazy, a different alcohol entirely. Use scotch, and it becomes a Rob Roy. It’s the drink of the people. I prefer it on the rocks without the garnish. Make one and take it to the nearest patio about an hour before the temperature drops. Bask in the remains of the late-day heat. The ice will make a pleasant clinking sound as you instinctively rotate your wrist in a swirl. The sun’s rays will reflect through the amber liquid. That first drink will
be a complex cacophony of flavors in your mouth, a curious blend of bitter and sweet with just a hint of botanical fruit. It will be cold and refreshing. The air around you will begin to blur, and the world will appear to be drowsy. As you near the bottom, you’ll feel a pleasant buzzing in your head that could be the whispers of hummingbirds or honeybees, or perhaps the whiskey is starting to take hold. Even though there is a chill rolling in off of the Pacific, you will feel the warmth of the whiskey flowing through you. This is summer, and you’re going to Manhattan. Manhattan recipe: • 2 ounces rye whiskey • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth • Dash of bitters • Garnish with a maraschino cherry • Optional: Ice • Combine whiskey, vermouth and bitters in a cocktail glass. Add ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Post a photo with your Manhattan, and be sure to tag @CheersNorthCounty on Instagram or Twitter. Got a unique recipe?

Sports Lewis eager to usher in another Padres season at Petco Park sports talk jay paris
ike most baseball fans, Franklin Lewis is hitting rewind. “I like watching the old games but you know how they are going to end,” Lewis said. Lewis, of Cardiff, was set to start his 28th year as a Padres usher. Just maybe during a time when baseball needs direction, the personable Lewis can point the way. He’s done just that as a Qualcomm Stadium and Petco Park usher, where he sets
up shop near the right-field foul pole. “It’s a pretty good spot,” said Lewis, a retired teacher. “There’s a standing area there where I can talk to people and they can just hang out. In most ballparks, the standing-room area is 30 rows up. At Petco, it's right after the fifth row.” Front-and-center are the MLB owners and players as they negotiate a path toward playing games. But countless others are involved, like Lewis and his service-oriented colleagues, and they miss the game, too. For Lewis, 68, that includes seeing familiar faces. He taught physical education at Carlsbad's La Costa Meadows Elementary School for a dozen years and in four of them, Padres great

tive remembers the 1960 World Series when New York Yankees’ second baseman Bobby Richardson slugged a grand slam. While Lewis was drawn to the perennially successful Yanks, his address said otherwise, especially in 1962. “Brooklyn is a National
League borough,” he said. “So I started to root for the Mets. Every time the Mets come in everyone razzes me, ‘We know who you’re rooting for Franklin.’ ” But you can like two teams, too. Lewis came west but his Brooklynese remained and that includes his name tag designating his hometown. His dish of baseball comes with an entree of confidence. “If you’re from Brooklyn you have two things built-in: baseball and attitude,” Lewis said. “Which is great because at Petco I get to talk to fans from all over their country. Sometimes I know more about their team than they do.” Lewis’ can-do spirit didn’t take long to shine, and yes he did look spiffy at his first opening day in 1993
when ushers wore tuxedos. He started in a Qualcomm Stadium escalator and four days in he was elevated to the right-field seats. A year later he started the tradition of hanging a “K” banner after a Padres pitcher notched a strikeout. And just below Lewis was Tony Gwynn in his prime. “I got to see some of the best years,” said Lewis, a keen observer of all things baseball. “I didn’t bother him much, but one time I yelled out that his son, Tony Gwynn Jr., had hit a grand slam in a playoff game for Poway High the day before. He turned around and acknowledged that one.” Lewis, who played all sports growing up in the Big Apple, hopes the worm will turn between the owners and the players. When Lewis punches the clock it requires standing through batting practice and games that flirt with fours hours. Still, nothing erases his love for baseball. “All the games they’ve shown on TV in the off-season the Padres won,“ Lewis said with a laugh. “So it’s kind of nice that the Padres are undefeated.” In Lewis’ section, that notion always has a reserved seat.

Racetrack plans July 10 open date DEL MAR — The Del Mar Thoroughbred Club announced May 28 it plans to start its racing season on July 10, pending the approval of the California Horse Racing Board. The state's Horse Racing Board will decide at its June 11 meeting whether to approve the Del Mar racetrack's plan, which would employ a Friday through Sunday race schedule. The track will operate without spectators for the foreseeable future, according to track officials. Originally scheduled to open on July 18, the track’s operators proposed moving up the start date to fit its usual amount of races in, despite an abbreviated schedule. “We want to begin the meet earlier and offer horsemen the same number of opportunities to run as we have for the last several summer seasons,” said Tom Robbins, executive vice president of racing for the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. The proposed schedule calls for 291 races over nine weeks. The track ran 297 races over its eight-week summer program last year. — City News Service

How to stay connected during wildfire season For Southern California residents, preparing and protecting your home or business in the event of a wildfire is a daily reality. A top priority for Cox during a wildfire or other natural disaster is to keep customers connected so they can stay informed, check in with family and friends, and even access their shows and movies while away from home. Cox also works hard to keep business customers, including hospitals and offices of Emergency Services, connected so they can continue to serve their customers and the public. Wildfire season now begins earlier and ends later than in years past, so Cox prepares all year long, reviewing its business continuity plan and running through mock wildfire events so employees in all facets of its operations will be prepared and know their role and responsibilities

area around Poway Lake. Johnson’s biggest concern, though, was that if Vista is the only North County city to have a celebration, it is likely residents from other cities will come to Vista to watch the show. “It might put a strain on our neighborhoods,” he said. “That is a concern from a law enforcement and traffic options.” Additionally, Star 94.1 radio in San Diego will con-
tinue to broadcast songs in sync with the show, Johnson said. Mayor Judy Ritter recalled her father, a World War II pilot, saying the holiday always reminds her of him and what his memory means to her. Councilwoman Corinna Contreras also supported the celebration, noting the tradition in Vista and the country of celebrating the freedoms of the nation.

Video taken of the arrest shows since-fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, 44, kneeling on Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, including for nearly three minutes after Floyd became unconscious. Floyd can be heard on video saying “I can't breathe,” several times before he died. Chauvin, along with the three other officers who witnessed the incident without intervening, have been fired, arrested and charged since the wave of protests began. Tensions had been mounting since before Floyd’s death, however, after Taylor, 26, was shot

eight times in her home by police who entered on a noknock warrant in the middle of the night. The police were investigating two men who they believed were selling drugs out of a house that was more than 10 miles away from Taylor’s home. The warrant included Taylor's residence because police said they believed her apartment was used to receive packages, yet no drugs were found in Taylor’s apartment. The case is under investigation, but no arrests have been made in Taylor’s death. In the meantime, demonstrations demanding “Justice for Breonna Taylor” persist. “While there are those in the community who care about Black Lives Matter, those voices are normally quieter than the ones who are against it,” Lashley said. “I wanted people to have a voice and to be heard over all of the hate in Escondido.”

JUNE 12, 2020
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Choosing to work with someone you once thought might have been disloyal is a courageous move. The logical next step is to talk things out so there’ll be no reason for raising suspicions again. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Take your time making a decision about a personal or work-related relationship. New facts are still coming in, and you’ll want to know the full story before you take a definitive step. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Expect to learn something new about an old problem. This could provide some insight into how the problem began, and why it still defies efforts to find a resolution. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An uneasy work-related relationship can be eased with compromises by both sides. The parties might consider putting the agreed-upon changes in writing in case of a future misunderstanding. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Oh, you lucky Felines: Your romantic aspects are in absolutely purrrfect form. Don’t be surprised at how especially attentive the ladies and gentlemen in your life are going to be this week. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Looking to prove yourself in a difficult situation is laudable. But try paying more attention to advice from experienced contacts. It could help you avoid time-wasting missteps.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business decision seems easy enough to make based on what you know. But this week could bring new facts to light, and you might have to do some heavy rethinking. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Feeling sure about the steps you expect to take is great. But you may need to share a few dollops of that confidence with those who have some doubts about your plans. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A sense of well-being dominates much of the week. A slightly depressed mood could set in on the weekend. But seeing family and friends helps shoo it away. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You appear to be walking your life’s path like the sure-footed Goat you are. But someone might feel you could do better. Listen to the advice, but make up your own mind. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) With positive signs growing stronger, Aquarians could find themselves facing choices that are each too good to turn down. Best advice: Go for the one you feel most comfortable with. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Someone you know might need your comfort and wisdom during a particularly difficult period. Your encouraging words help restore self-confidence and rebuild strength. BORN THIS WEEK: Your kindness to all who need you is always appreciated and sets a fine example for others to follow. © 2020 King Features Synd., Inc.
