After primaries, what’s next for 49th District activists? By Kelli Kyle
VISTA — On June 5, approximately 158,000 voters turned out in the 49th Congressional District — covering North San Diego County and Southern Orange County — to determine which two candidates would face off in the November midterm election. The spots went to one Democrat, Mike Levin, and one Republican, Diane Harkey. This was the moment when Terra Lawson-Remer could finally exhale. “I think people are
tired, but really inspired,” Lawson-Remer said. For more than a year, Lawson-Remer and about 2,000 other citizens in the 49th Congressional District came together as Flip the 49th! Neighbors in Action to coordinate the removal of Republican Congressman Darrell Issa from office. While some protested outside the congressman’s office, Lawson-Remer got together with a small group to plan a strategy to help the Democrats win the next election. Now that they have a candidate on the
November ballot, Flip the 49th! Campaign Manager Johnny Papagianis said members of the group are resting briefly, then making efforts to ensure that Democratic candidate Levin wins. “Now it’s a one-onone contest,” Papagianis said.” There’s no let-up. I think that everybody I’ve worked with throughout this process, everybody gets this. I don’t anticipate there being any drop-off.” Since Flip the 49th!

REGION — A proposed 1,700home master planned community near Valley Center is headed to the County Board of Supervisors, after the County Planning Commission voted June 8 not to rehear the project. But opponents of the project said they likely will sue to have it reheard by the planning group. The commission voted 5-0, with two commissioners absent, to advance the Lilac Hills Ranch Proposal to the supervisors, despite staff’s recommendation that the body hold additional hearings to address what they called “s u b s t a n t i a l changes” to the project. The Valley Center Community Planning Group and a group of residents who have opposed the project since its incepBryan Woods tion urged the Planning commission to Commissioner side with its staff. Lilac Hills Ranch owners contended that the changes made since the Planning Commission’s approval in September 2015 were incorporating the recommendations the commission provided but developers did not explicitly include in their failed 2016 ballot measure attempt, Measure B. The commissioners sided with the developer’s argument. “All of the changes are to the betterment of the project,” Commissioner Bryan Woods said. “After 10 years, enough is enough, the board needs to make a decision and move on.” Lilac Hills Ranch Vice President John Rilling said the group

2018 Primary Elections
Democratic women are top 2 in 76th
Desmond wins District 5 but runoff likely
GOP loses grip on Assembly seat
Gomez holds 2nd spot in supervisors race
By Aaron Burgin
REGION — In the three elections since the inception of the 76th State Assembly District in 2012, no Democrat has advanced to the runoff stage of the campaign. In fact, no Democratic candidate has appeared on the ballot during that time. This backdrop makes the June 5 results all the more surprising, as two Democrats will move forward in the race to replace Rocky Chavez. Elizabeth Warren finished Tuesday night ahead of fellow Democrat Tasha Boerner Horvath by about 600 votes (as of Thursday morning), each with about 25 percent of the vote. Republican Phil Graham, who received the endorsement from the party’s establishment, finished in third place with 21.3 percent of the vote. “There weren’t a lot of big surprises on the night, only little surprises,” political consultant John Dadian said. “But this qualifies as one of those surprises.” Boerner Horvath, who serves on the Encinitas City Council, and Warren, a popular Oceanside activist, both expressed cautious optimism that the results would hold as the registrar of voters begins to count absentee, provisional and mail-in ballots. “We have been saying all along that we look forward to turning the district blue, and now we are looking forward to a positive runoff campaign,” Boerner Horvath said. “We remain optimistic that we’ll fare well when all the votes are counted,” Warren said. “I’d also like to send my thanks and good wishes to the many candidates who ran clean, issuefocused campaigns, and to the many volunteers who gave countless hours to our campaign and others. This election is about the voters — not the candidates. It’s about regular people who work hard and deserve better than they’re getting.” Seven candidates comTURN TO 76TH ON 11

Stephan cruises to full term as county DA
REGION — From four to two, the race for the District 5 seat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors appears set. San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond, a Republican, blew away the field, but didn’t earn enough votes to avoid a runoff. He tallied more than 45 percent of the vote, while Democrat Michelle Gomez earned nearly 23 percent, Oceanside City Councilman Jerry Kern, a Republican, finished third with 19 percent and Democrat Jacqueline Arsivaud came in fourth with nearly 13 percent. According to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, there were 38,000 outstanding ballots as of Desmond Thursday morning, although many of those will not affect the District 5 race. Still, there are enough to flip second and third place. Still, Desmond is too far to catch and he touted his success as mayor as one reason he’s connected with District 5 voters.
Dumanis’ hand-picked successor tops Jones-Wright with over 63 percent of the vote By Steve Puterski
REGION — It wasn’t close. Interim San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan will retain her position after trouncing challenger and Deputy Public Defender Geneviéve JonesWright. With only 38,000 ballots still to be counted, as of Thursday morning, Stephan won more than 63 percent of the vote, while JonesWright tallied just under 37 percent. Stephan, a Republican, was appointed to the position last summer after Bonnie Dumanis retired, and finished second in her race for the District 4 seat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. A message left with Stephan by The Coast News was not returned. The race saw nearly $4 million pumped in, with Jones-Wright, a Democrat, receiving the bulk. However, it was revealed Democratic megadonor George Soros of

However, when it was revealed Soros donated and backed Jones-Wright, Stephan used it to paint a picture of outsiders trying to influence a local election. “San Diego is not for sale and our voices are going to be heard,” Stephan said at a press conference in May. “I’ve devoted my life to protecting victims of crime, to looking into their eyes and seeing pain, to restoring justice. This is not about criminal justice reform. This is about advancing the rights of criminals over the rights of victims.”
Stephan has spent 28 years in the DA’s office, but has not specified whether any changes are coming. Still, Stephan did not come out unscathed as the longtime prosecutor was attacked for overlooking alleged accounts of police brutality and backing racial profiling from police. Jones-Wright ran on a platform to reform the DA’s office, one where she would have expanded the definition of a victim to include those profiled and victims of police shootings. Stephan, meanwhile, gobbled up dozens of Republican and law enforcement endorsements. She also touted her record, especially in trials, and the fact Jones-Wright never prosecuted a case. In addition, Stephan has been in a management position since 2003 overseeing departments and budgets. The DA’s office has about 1,000 employees and a $190 million budget.

California’s economic success helps explain low GOP vote
Everything in San Diego County is brought to you by water By Mark Muir
We’ve got a great thing going here in San Diego County, from the mountains to the coast and from the far northern reaches of our region to the international border. Our economy is strong — one of the largest in the nation — with everything from global giants to startups trying to make a splash. We’ve got the most small farms of any county in the country and innovative industries that put us on the map. And our quality of life is second to none. People come from all over the world to play here and stay here. They come for our attractions, our beer, our climate and everything else this great region offers. That makes me proud to call this place home. And it reminds me that none of this would be possible without one key ingredient: a safe and reliable water supply. Think about it: We get just 10 inches of rain a year
at Lindbergh Field. That’s not enough to sustain even a small fraction of what we do here day in and day out. In fact, the last time our natural water resources were sufficient for San Diego County was 1946. At the time, San Diego was just at the start of its renaissance, first as a center of military operations, and later as one of the largest, most vibrant metropolitan areas in the nation. Today, we boast an advanced economy that’s still a key military hub, and also a center of manufacturing, brewing, tourism, agriculture and so much else. There are lots of reasons for our collective success, but none more foundational than steady and sufficient water supplies. Water is critical for developing new smartphone technology, next-generation medicines, high-tech military ships and world-class guitars and banjos. And the list goes on. That’s where the San Diego County Water Au-
thority and its 24 member agencies come in. Together, we secure, treat and deliver this vital resource 24/7/365. We do it in pioneering and innovative ways, like new and enlarged reservoirs and the nation’s largest seawater desalination plant. We also work the front lines of water-use efficiency with rebates and resources to stretch every drop, because we appreciate the value of the region’s investments in safe and reliable water supplies. So, every time you slice an avocado on your salad, use your smartphone for directions to the Gaslamp, watch your kid hit a home run on a Little League field, or stroll the tree-lined trails of Balboa Park, remember that this San Diego life is Brought to You by Water. For more on the Water Authority’s Brought to You by Water program, go to https://b2ubyh2o.org/. Mark Muir is Board Chair for the San Diego County Water Authority
Local cities and the Trump administration I wondered when the Trump fascism would hit close to home. Last week it did. A beloved member of our Leucadia community was taken away by ICE. He is one of the most upstanding of citizens, a young guy who manages a local business and has lived in the area for more than fifteen years. He has no criminal record. The police pulled him over and contacted ICE, who came and took him away. Now, he’s sitting in a holding facility and could be moved anywhere at any time. Now, take a deep breath. Imagine if this happened to your grandparents, most of whom were immigrants. There would be no USA, as we know it. So, I would like to say shame on you to the San Diego County Board of Super-
visors, especially to Kristin Gaspar, an Encinitas resident, and also to the Carlsbad City Council. Both of these bodies recently made a point of fighting California’s sanctuary policy with plans to file amicus briefs with the Trump government. What happened to my friend was a direct result of Carlsbad’s newly stated position, where local police work freely with ICE. There’s a reason the great state of California, under the wise stewardship of Jerry Brown, has objected to the Trump policies, which are un-American and lack compassion and wisdom. In contrast, Encinitas is an example of a city that’s done the right thing. Thank you to Mayor Catherine Blakespear, Tony Kranz, Tasha Boerner Hor-
vath and Joe Mosca for your bravery and vision in standing with California against the increasingly Orwellian policies of the Trump government. Sometimes it’s hard to do the right thing. Sometimes it takes a little time to see the truth. But it should be getting more clear that those who do not distance themselves from the dark brutality of the Trump government will have both a political and moral price to pay. Our national government, and now local governments like the cities of Carlsbad and Escondido, are starting to look scary. This must stop. Shame on Trump and those who do not see the danger in this. Darius Degher Leucadia
hen all the votes have finally been counted, the total tally for the two major Republican candidates in this month’s California primary election run for governor likely will come to just over 35 percent of the total. That’s the lowest percentage for the GOP in a seriously contested primary in modern history, and there’s a reason for it: Despite constant Republican rhetoric about this state’s decline and despite the echoes of President Trump in the vows of GOP candidates John Cox and Travis Allen to “Make California Great Again,” things are actually going pretty well here — at least for the vast majority of Californians. Generally, when the economy is successful, challenges to the party in power can flop. So it will almost certainly be a defeat this fall for Cox, a former Illinois businessman and peripatetic 12-time losing candidate there who beat out Democrat Antonio Villaraigosa and Orange County Assemblyman Allen for the right to run against Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom this November. With Republican voter registration now barely 25 percent of the total and actually third behind Democrats (45 percent) and those with no party preference (almost 26 percent), Cox will have a difficult task. No California candidate has ever faced such a party-registration deficit and it isn’t because the GOP hasn’t tried hard. Over the last 25 years, the party spent millions of dollars on voter registration efforts aimed at whites, Latinos, Asian-Americans and African-Americans,
california focus thomas d. elias with little or no success. One result is the low percentage of votes for the party’s major springtime candidates for governor. This performance led to Democratic primary winner Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor, instantly becoming a big favorite to win the November election and succeed Jerry Brown as governor. The reasons for it include California’s economic performance, which belies Trump’s labeling this a “failed state.” Simply put, reality is the opposite. Yes, as Newsom said in a springtime interview, this is both America’s richest state and its poorest. But the election results demonstrate the poor have no faith Republicans will solve their problems, while the well-off are satisfied with the party that’s at least partly enabled them to achieve that status. California is doing well by almost every measure. The latest ranking by the often-cited Wallethub website of the best and worst state economies in the nation — out early this month — placed California in fourth place, contrary to GOP rhetoric that routinely calls this a rotten place to do business. California had the fifth-most start-up businesses in America over the last year. It tied Massachusetts for the most independent inventor patents per capita. It ranked among the lowest in unemployment. That was just one ranking system. Perhaps the most important ranking for
California came when it surpassed the United Kingdom and France for the first time ever to become the world’s fifth-largest economy (behind only the overall U.S., China, Japan and Germany) with a gross domestic product of more than $2.7 trillion, an increase of $127 billion over just the last year. The rise in gross domestic product put California’s pace of growth far ahead of low-tax states like Texas and Florida, which style themselves as the wave of the future and California’s chief rivals. Economic and job growth has far outstripped the nation as a whole, accounting for the lion’s share of national growth. It’s hard to see how Trump, who says his decimating of federal regulations has created economic growth, can try to make the same claim about California, which is fighting most of his changes. This all trickles down, as the conservative economist Arthur Laffer (a former Californian) might say. It even trickles into the voting booth. Essentially, the party registration figures and the flight of onetime Republican voters into both the no-preference and Democratic columns are the result of Democratic successes with the state economy. Cox will surely keep arguing that things are terrible. As a challenger of the status quo, he needs to do that. But barring a sudden collapse that could be blamed on Democrats, he’s unlikely to have much more success in the fall than his party did this spring.

NFL Hall of Famer’s biggest win is beating prostate cancer By Adam Bradley
CARMEL VALLEY — Meet Mike Haynes: pro football Hall of Famer, former NFL cornerback who played for the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Raiders, and prostate cancer survivor. The Carmel Valley resident, now 64, has had a lot of successes in the world of sports but perhaps one of his greatest achievements has been to beat prostate cancer. In 2008, at the age of 55, Haynes attended a health screening at the Pro Football Hall of Fame which led him to the discovery he had prostate cancer. Shortly after, he had a real wake-up call. Even though as an athlete he got a physical checkup every year, this one was different. Talking about his story for National Men’s Health Month in June, Haynes wants to help other men be proactive about their health. “When I got the results, it really got my attention since because my PSA (prostate specific antigen) numbers were up,” said Haynes, who has been a spokesperson for the Urology Care Foundation’s Know Your Stats campaign since 2009. “African American men are much more susceptible to prostate cancer and I started thinking about my own family, and my grandpa who died of cancer.” When he called his primary care physician he was told his number had gone from 3.0 to 3.5 in just three months. “We never had a conversation about it and I quickly learned that my numbers and had gone up, but I was told it wasn’t much of a spike, and I had nothing to really worry about,” said Haynes, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1997.
In pursuit of answers But instead of turning his head, Haynes pursued the results further and went to a urologist, who told him he might want to think about having a biopsy since his PSA numbers had gone up quite a bit in three years. He followed the advice and had the biopsy done; sure enough, it came back that he had tested positive for a low stage of prostate cancer. “Like a lot of men, I was naïve Mike Haynes when it came to my health. I’d always been in the dark and never wanted to talk to anyone about it,” he said. “When I learned I had cancer, I started doing research and looking into treatments and everything I could.” He added that he didn’t want people to feel sorry for him and his reaction was typical: “Let’s not tell anyone.” But as soon as he started talking to people and seeking help, he felt better: “People’s opinions made me feel better and stronger, I’m now a strong advocate of talking about things, especially when it comes to health.” Haynes was living in New York at the time and decided he wanted to have surgery to remove the cancer, but he wanted to return to California to be with family. “I was lucky to find out early on that it was a slow-growing cancer that could be treated,” he said. “I wanted to take care of it immediately.” That’s when he called Urology Care Foundation and asked them what he should do, and he looked
wife,” he laughed. He also likes to walk, hike and play golf. Does he miss football? Haynes, a two-time All-America selection at Arizona State University (1972-75) and inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2001 said, not really the game, but more of the camaraderie. “I miss being in a huddle with 10 guys and all of us are reaching to complete the same assignment and pull it off,” he said. “I do miss the environment of the game, but you know, it was my job then.” His advice to other men who put off health checkups? “Don’t. I say get to know your family history and start there,” he said. “There’s the likelihood that In remission Haynes, now in remission for 10 you will get the disease if it runs years, ended his career in football in in your family.

Haynes returned to San Diego in 2008 about six months after the diagnosis to have a radical prostatectomy surgery to remove the cancer at UCSD. “It was so innovative; instead of the doctor standing over me doing surgery, a robot did the surgery,” he said. His stay in the hospital was one night and he felt great immediately afterward. “My wife and I went shopping the next day,” he laughed. “Even though I had a catheter in for 10 days, and couldn’t do anything strenuous, I felt good.”

Sports Familiar face to lead city’s team in new football league REGION — Former St. Louis Rams coach Mike Martz was introduced last week as the coach of San Diego’s team in the Alliance of American Football. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to get back on the sidelines in my hometown of San Diego,” Martz, a graduate of San Diego’s James Madison High School, said at a May 31 news conference at San Diego County Credit Union Stadium where the team will play. “This city is very special to me. It’s where I grew up, started my collegiate career and met and married my wife,” he said. “I would love
Mike Martz nothing more than to bring a championship here.” Martz coached the Rams from 2000 to 2005, guiding the team to a 53-32 record, including a berth in Super Bowl XXXVI, where the Rams were upset by the New England Patriots. After being fired by the Rams, Martz was the offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions from 2006 to 2007, San Francisco 49ers in 2008 and Chicago Bears from 2010 to 2011. Before becoming the Rams coach, Martz was the offensive coordinator in the 1999 season when the team won Super Bowl XXXIV. He had been the quarterbacks coach from 1992 to 1994 when the Rams played at Anaheim Stadium and receivers coach in 1995 and 1996, their first two seasons in St. Louis. The league announced on May 29 that San Diego would have a team in the eight-team league set to begin play Feb. 9. “From the moment Bill Polian and I began discussing our vision for The Alliance, a pro football league founded on a commitment to players,
fans and the game, San Diego was one of the first markets we discussed because of the city’s love for the game,” said Charlie Ebersol, a co-founder of the league and its CEO. Fans may make $50 deposits for season tickets by calling (833) AAF-2019 or online at AAF.com. Ticket pricing and seat locations for Alliance San Diego home games will be released later this summer. The league has committed to making a limited number of $35 sideline seats available for purchase, said Ebersol, a television and movie producer who is the son of TV executive Dick Ebersol and actress Susan Saint James. “The Alliance of American Football represents a fundamental shift in the way we approach professional sports,” he said. “We believe fans and players are what’s most important, so our approach is simple — we’ve created an alliance where fans and players share in the success of their teams.” The league will have a bonus structure based on victories, statistical milestones and fan engagement. Players will receive post-football scholarships for postsecondary education for every year played in the league and comprehensive post-football career planning and counseling. Fans will be able to stream games via a free app “while accessing integrated fantasy options with real rewards, for themselves and the players they are cheering on,” according to the league. The league’s opener and championship game will be televised by CBS. A game will be carried each week by cable's CBS Sports Network. The league will operate under a single-entity structure instead of having individuals own teams. The other cities to be awarded teams are Atlanta, Memphis, Orlando, Phoenix and Salt Lake City. The other two cities will be announced soon, Ebersol said. Teams will have 50-player rosters, built primarily through regionally based allocation which will be made in the fall. Players will be available in markets near where they played in the NFL or college. In an attempt to increase player safety, the league will not have kickoffs. Instead, teams will start with the ball on their own 25-yard lines to start a game or second half or after allowing a score. Instead of an onside kick, the trailing team will receive the ball on its own 35-yard line, facing fourth down and 10. To improve the on-field product and telecasts, the league will have a shorter play clock and fewer commercial breaks to create shorter games. Extra-point kicks will be eliminated, with teams required to attempt twopoint conversions after every touchdown. — City News Service
The Great Scott runs off into retirement sports talk jay paris
teve Scott got out of town. Of course, he was quick about it. “I’m sitting in Pacific Grove right now,” Scott said. “Feeling an arctic blast.” Scott was always the epitome of chill. Whether he was helping get the iconic Carlsbad 5K off the ground or starting the Cal State University San Marcos cross country and track teams from scratch. But Scott, 62, got the retirement itch this year. After 20 years of reading stop watches and inspiring runners, he’s run off to the Monterey area. “It was the right time,” Scott said. The man’s life revolved about getting the right times so we can’t argue. The longtime American record holder in the mile, a three-time Olympian and owner of a record 136 subfour-minute miles is keen on timing. “I will miss the kids,” he said. “I most definitely will miss the kids.” Some of them from that first Cougars team in 1999 were at his retirement gig. In fact, runners from every era of his stint at the San Marcos university on the hill was represented. Of course many recreational runners know Scott from his days of leading, and winning, the Carlsbad 5K. Same goes for the zillions of parents with pic-

tures of Scott leaning over to proudly place a medal on a tyke racing in an abbreviated event, all in the name of spreading the joy of running and really, just being a good guy. Tracy Sundlun, one of Scott’s closest friends and a longtime member of the San Diego County running scene, might have put it best. Watching Scott sprint north comes with a cost. “It’s a loss to our community and certainly a loss to those kids he served as a coach and a mentor,” Sund-
lun said. “He provided an opportunity for people to be the absolute best as a human they can be on off the field. It will be a shame people won’t have the opportunity to take advantage of that. “People might never come across somebody who has accomplished as much as he has, with as much character. He’s a very, very special man.” It’s chatter like that which makes Scott squirms. He’s a gold-medal winner at deflecting praise, instead
making sure it lands on those not accustomed to it. The racer with the legendary kick got just as big a kick watching a youngster finish a run that lasted three blocks as an CSUSM athlete attaining All-American status. “I don’t not have a Master’s degree in kinesiology and I’m not the greatest ‘X’ and ‘O’ guy in terms of training techniques,” Scott said. “I know there are other coaches that have more common knowledge and degrees than I had. “But the one thing I passed on to the kids was that they knew that I cared about them. I loved them and I wanted the best for them. That was sincere.” Scott, who continues to run, poured his heart and soles into doing just that. “Coaching is stressful and it was starting to take its toll on me,” he said. “I wanted to make it to the first year CSUSM was eligible for Division II and we had a great season. It was the right time.” So the classy ex-Carlsbad resident has skedaddled to the Northern California, and yeah, we miss him already. In the long run, there might not be another Steve Scott and here’s why. “I don’t get any bonus money for winning championships or producing All-Americans,” Scott said. “I do this because I want to help young kids achieve their goals, and to grow as people. That’s the thing that I brought.” And what he left behind. Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him @jparis_sports

Life thrives along the Animas River in New Mexico hit the road e’louise ondash
ere’s an amazing fact: Farmington, New Mexico, a city of only 44,000 in the northwest corner of the state, has 58 parks. To put this in perspective, that’s nearly 44 acres per 1,000 residents. The national average is 10.1 acres, according to the 2018 Agency Performance Report prepared by the National Parks and Recreation Association. So yes, Farmington does love its outdoors, and no one exemplifies this better than Donna Thatcher. She is the teacher, tireless worker and one-woman show who makes the Farmington Museum’s Nature Center what it is — a wonderful natural and educational resource for both residents and visitors. The center sits on a nature trail that hugs the Animas River and is visited daily by deer, various birds and resident Canada geese and their goslings (one mother has 13) that waddle around like they own the place. The New Mexico sun is intense, so when Thatcher takes us out on the trail, we are grateful for the enormous, stately cottonwoods — some half a millennium old — and renegade Russian olive trees that provide shade. Thatcher gives us a crash course in the area’s plants, animals and bugs, and shows off the herb and succulent gardens and recent improvements. We learn later that this leafy river corridor of pavers and groomed hard-packed gravel extends for eight-plus miles along the Animas. Ev-

eastern San Juan County. Drawn by the confluence of three rivers — the Animas, La Plata and San Juan — the population began to grow in the 1870s with Mormon settlers and others. Today, the proximity of ancient dwellings and amazing natural landscapes draw visitors to Farmington. Using the town as a base, visitors can visit many Four Corners-area attractions; Shiprock Pinnacle; Four Corners Monument; and Aztec Ruins. The town of Farmington offers its own charm and fun. There is Lake Farmington where families can spend the day for $5 per vehicle, play in the sand and
on the giant water toys, rent kayaks, try paddleboarding and eat icy treats from the Shiver Shack. In town, Adrienne Boggs, Farmington Museum’s education coordinator, gives tours of the historic downtown and regales visitors with stories from the past. There’s the one about the wealthy, elderly man and the young, single teacher who inherited his home; the divorce that determined the town’s street grid; and the downtown fire that was finally extinguished with dynamite. One building, a former drug store and then a newspaper office, took on new life when the Three Rivers Eatery & Brewhouse opened in 1997. It has expanded to three restaurants, a lounge and game room, all supervised by Jesse Gravelle, who arrived from Columbus, Ohio, in 2000. “I fell in love with Farmington,” he says. “People here are really friendly and there’s so much to do close by.” The restaurant features original wood flooring and an elaborate tin ceiling. Hundreds of pop culture artifacts and antiques blanket the walls and tables, including “the largest beer label and beer coaster collection in New Mexico.” (How many? Gravelle wonders, too. My guess: thousands, plus more still in storage.) While Farmington celebrates its roots, it also looks forward. An extension of the Farmington Museum recently opened a downtown gallery to showcase Navajo art and culture, and there are big plans for renovating downtown. Smaller portions of the total project have been in the works, but the financial pieces for the major work came together recently “in the perfect storm,” explains Michael Bulloch, project coordinator. The six blocks of downtown will get a makeover with landscaping, seating, murals and sculptures. A water park is in the plans and some are working to create a system of river trails. Upcoming: Chaco Culture National Historical Park and Bisti Wilderness. See additional photos in and around Farmington at www. facebook.com /elouise.ondash.

CARLSBAD — Teachers, parents, and students of Carlsbad High School recently had the opportunity to become more informed on human trafficking and how it impacts families of all socioeconomic levels in San Diego County. On June 7, Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland visited the Parent Teacher Student Association meeting to raise human trafficking awareness. The Soroptimists brought the 20-minute docudrama titled, “CHOSEN” for attendees to watch. The film shared the story of two American girls de-
ceived into sexual exploitation. Before the film, there was a brief presentation led by Kaye Van Nevel of Soroptimist International Vista and North County Inland. According to Van Nevel, Soroptimists have had a strong focus in raising awareness on human trafficking for more than a decade. Van Nevel also champions the San Diego County Human Trafficking Collaborative. Following the viewing of “CHOSEN,” Van Nevel was on hand for a Q&A. Van Nevel said “CHOSEN” is a true story and is also very relevant. “One of the young women is 18 and just out of high school,” she said. “She falls for a handsome, somewhat older guy she meets while waitressing.” She added that the young woman is lured into human trafficking. “It (the docudrama) is very well done, and hits home.” The film educates adults and teens on the warning signs of being trapped into sexual exploitation in an effort to prevent other unsuspecting victims from being trapped into it. Van Nevel is quick to point out that human trafficking is a global issue. She also shared how 80 percent of those who are sexually exploited are United States citizens — and anyone can

be a target. Also, 72 percent of those victims are youth. Van Nevel explained that over the years there are always a few in the group surprised to learn that human trafficking is taking place in their own backyard. There is a perception that it’s happening somewhere else. Some attending the June 7 meeting were also surprised by the statistics, Van Nevel said. She also noted the prevalence of sex trafficking with women and girls but said boys can also be victims. Van Nevel hopes that viewers walked away armed with more knowledge, awareness and with a newfound interest to team up with an organization such as the San Diego County Human Trafficking Collaborative, which are fighting this epidemic. Other ways people are getting involved include mentoring and helping victims of sex trafficking with the goal of living a new life. “When our public schools, both middle and high school grades, open their doors to presentations such as this, we create public interest and hope to abate and eventually eradicate these crimes,” Van Nevel said.

REGION — An initiative to split California into three states has qualified for the November ballot. What initiative author Tim Draper has dubbed “CAL 3” surpassed the 402,468 projected valid signatures needed to qualify by random sampling, Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced June 12. Splitting California would require congressional approval. One proposed state would be called California or a name to be chosen by its residents after a split. It would consist of Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and San Benito counties. A second state, Southern California or a name to be chosen by its residents, would consist of Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Fresno, Tulare, Inyo, Madera and Mono counties. The remaining 40 counties would be part of the state of Northern California or a name chosen by its residents. Draper, a venture capitalist, said he believes that “the citizens of the whole state would be better served by three smaller state governments while preserving the historical boundaries of the various counties, cities and towns.” “CAL 3” has no connection to efforts to have California secede from the United States.

Muriel Bernice Ohriner
Mar. 7, 1924 - Jun. 2, 2018
Muriel Bernice Ohriner, age 94, passed away on Saturday, June 2, 2018, in Carlsbad, California. Muriel was born March 7, 1924 in Wilmington, DE to Pinkus and Madeline Kanofsky. The second oldest of 3 girls, Muriel always wanted to ride a bicycle. When she met her adventurous husband, Marvin, her wish came true. In addition to bicycling, they loved to play tennis and travel. Married for 56 years, they raised 4 sons in Queens, NY.
Donald Edward Priest, 86 Carlsbad June 2, 2018 William Taylor Carlsbad May 22, 2018 Carol Ann Nelson, 67 Encinitas May 21, 2018
During that time, she took classes at Queens college and fondly remembered being the oldest student in her classes. She was a gourmet chef, often developing her own family recipes. Muriel loved to read and was an avid crossword puzzle enthusiast. After their sons graduated high school, Muriel and Marvin moved to Rancho Bernardo, CA in 1987, and she moved to Carlsbad in 2008. Muriel is preceded in death by her parents, her sisters, Jeanne Rubenstein and Adele Markfield, and her husband. She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law: Evan and Jenifer, Steven and Rita, Kenneth and Pamela, and Jeffrey, as well as six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. With an ever-present brilliant sense of humor, Muriel brought smiles to those around her. Her kind, gentle spirit will be dearly missed.

Desmond cleared of campaign violations
Democratic candidate, Lawson-Remer said the group is also working to reconnect with members of the party. “We need to go through a process of rebuilding some bridges and building those relationships so that we can focus together on the common overarching goal, which is to defend the values that make America what it is and to take back the country that we love,” Lawson-Remer said. Since 2003, the 49th Congressional was held by Issa. Before that, two Democrats held the seat non-consecutively for one term each, with Republican Brian Bilbray taking the seat from 1995 to 2001. Diane Harkey’s campaign manager, Bryan Shroyer, said the Republicans have had their own campaign efforts operating just as long as the grassroots Flip the 49th!, and they are ready for the challenge. “Bring it,” Shroyer said. “When voters of this district hear what Diane has to offer versus our opponent, they’re going to side with Diane.” Flip the 49th! is currently working to rebuild within its party, but Shroyer said he sees their past approach as divisive. “Diane’s message speaks to the voters in the 49th, as opposed to dividing people into different segments like our opponent.” Additionally, Harkey’s campaign is not concerned by the higher Democratic voter turnout in June’s primary. “The primary turnout is not indicative of what we’re going to see in November,” Shroyer said.

June 1 confirmed he did not violate any ordinances. The independent elections council verified what Desmond and his campaign believed since the complaint was filed. John Hoy, Desmond’s campaign consultant, said on May 31 the municipal code in question does not apply to elections outside the city. The code, he added, only applies to candidates running for election in a city race, and not any other jurisdiction. Also, Hoy said Desmond’s attorney, who is also his campaign director, did not send a formal letter to the elections council or have any contact with investigators. “Our position is it just simply doesn’t apply to him,” he said on May 29. “That’s a city of San Marcos ordinance drafted to regulate elections in San Marcos. He’s running in the county of San Diego for supervisor under the rules of the county of San Diego. This ordinance is just not applicable in this situation.” A letter from the law firm states the alleged violations in question are not
covered in the municipal code, are barred by the statute of limitations or will be by June 5 and there are no sufficient facts to “demonstrate probable cause.” In addition, the letter states the amount of campaign contributions apply only to municipal elections, which has been the position of Desmond and Hoy since May 29. The complaint alleged Farouk Kubba of Vista San Marcos LLC donated $800 to Desmond’s campaign on June 6, 2017, and Desmond voted for the controversial San Marcos Highlands project on Nov. 15, 2017. In addition, $650 was donated to Desmond by David Hammer and Eric Armstrong, who worked on the Brookfield project. “I’m pretty disappointed,” Rosvall said of the investigation. “I feel that these laws should be applied to all elections. It seems like no matter what you do, they’re one step ahead of you.” Despite the allegations, Desmond continues to lead handily in the District 5 Superviors contest ahead of Michelle Gomez and Jerry Kern.
The election pitted elected political stalwarts Desmond and Kern against up-and-comers Arsivaud and Gomez. Desmond also survived a late complaint of violating campaign finance laws, but the case was cleared almost as quickly as it was filed. Desmond said last week it was “last-minute political hit.” He was cleared by an independent council and the California Fair Political Practices Commission. Regardless, Desmond has a comfortable lead going into November, although turnout is expected to be higher.
There are more than 600,000 residents in the district that includes Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Camp Pendleton, Valley Center (excluding Escondido) and Borrego Springs. Now, his focus is on the general election in November. “In November, it’s a different electorate,” Desmond said. “We’re going to be looking at the issues we have now, you know, homelessness, housing and infrastructure. We’re going to keep an eye on those and issues that pop up they will need to be addressed.”

prised a crowded field to replace Chavez, who saw his bid to succeed Darrell Issa as 49th District congressman fail on June 5 as well. Graham was one of several high-profile Republicans, including Thomas Krouse, Amanda Rigby, Jerome Stocks and Maureen Muir. Graham’s campaign was roiled by false accusations that he forcibly kissed a woman in a bar last month. The San Diego Sheriff’s Department cleared Graham a week after the woman, Niki Burgan, made the allegations. Republicans and Graham’s campaign spent the final week fending off political mailers and robocalls

U.S. REPRESENTATIVE 49TH DISTRICT as of June 13
If Levin does not win in November, Papagianis said there would be mourning, but he is confident the citizens will find a way to organize — like getting involved with local government or speaking up about national matters. “If there’s a bill coming up in Congress, I’m confi-
dent that people will turn up and make their voices heard after the election no matter what the outcome is,” Papagianis said. Neither Papagianis nor Lawson-Remer could think of an organization doing similar work — something that Lawson-Remer. troubled Still, the group received national attention for its efforts when it saw more Democratic voters than Republican voters in the primary. Lawson-Remer described these results as providing even more energy for the campaign and its volunteers. “I think people should be proud,” Lawson-Remer said. “This is one of those rare things where you really can say this belongs to everyone.” The next five months will tell which candidate makes it into the House of Representatives — and whether Flip the 49th! Neighbors in Action will meet the second part of their goal on Nov. 6.
that alluded to the incident even after he was cleared. The state Fair Political Practices Commission and the Public Utilities Commission are investigating one such robocall. Dadian, who was the
UCSD political science professor Thad Kousser said. “It is inarguably bad that in one of the key battleground districts in the state, Republicans have no shot in November. It is good for Democrats, but bad for democracy.”

chief of staff of former San Diego Mayor Susan Golding, said he believed the aborted scandal had minimal impact on the race’s outcome. “Because of the fact it was so short in nature, I don’t think it had that big of an impact,” Dadian said. Graham’s campaign did not respond to several text messages left by reporters. One political expert said that Republicans had too many candidates on the ballot, which split the vote to make it difficult for any of them to make it through to the November runoff. Experts had predicted this scenario would harm Democrats in congressional races across the state. “They had too many good candidates, which can be too much of a good thing,”
SAN MARCOS — Mayor Jim Desmond has been cleared of wrongdoing after an independent investigation found no “probable cause” to validate claims he violated campaign finance laws concerning his bid for the District 5 seat on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. The complaint was filed on May 29 by Realtor Ana Rosvall, among others, who claimed Desmond violated the city’s municipal code (2.16.010), which prohibits votes within 12 months of receiving a donation or receiving donations within 12 months of a vote. Rosavall’s complaint alleged Desmond accepted campaign donations from several sources prior to votes on development projects in the city. “Unfortunately, it was a last-minute campaign hit,” Desmond said. “An independent elections council was able to determine very quickly that there was no wrongdoing and I’ve been cleared of all allegations. So, we’re going to continue full speed ahead with the campaign.” A letter to Desmond from investigators dated

While the race for second is tight, Gomez said she is encouraged by the results. “It was a really exciting night last night,” she said. “Every time there was an update, our numbers went up, so we are pretty optimistic. We are looking forward to bringing on new volunteers and going into November.”

ront Porch Gallery invites you to experience Second Act, a collection of works by artists who found their calling later in life. From those who had long careers in other professions to those returning to passion from youth — the creative expressions in their work are as unique and varied as the stories that brought them to it. Come be inspired by the power of art to transform not only the viewer, but the artists themselves. The exhibit includes 47 juried in local artists including: Patrick Murphy “My Second Act came in the form of a Parkinson's disease diagnosis four years ago. Little did I know that it was actually a permission slip for me to become the artist I had only imagined. It launched my journey into developing my own unique style of award-winning Dimensional Fine Art.”
“Yuja,” an art quilt by Linda Anderson
1974, I taught art for a few years. Then I kept morphing into other arenas that also interested me: a trainer for decorators on how to use art and accessories in home designs; return to school for a MA in counseling and work as a Marriage and Family therapist; a short Linda Anderson stint as an executive recruit“After a MFA degree er; substitute teaching while from Otis Art Institute in being a stay at home mom;
sailing away with my family for 3 years and ending up in Trinidad and Tobago and becoming the school guidance counselor and holding parent training programs all over the island country. But behind it all, I always knew I would one day return to my roots as an artist. It happened in 2009 when we returned to the US and I saw my first art quilt. I im-
mediately went home and taught myself how to create doing the 2 things I have loved consistently: sewing and drawing and painting. Capturing ordinary and extraordinary moments with people around the world, moments that reinforce our sense of shared identity..... this is what drives me each and every day in my studio.” Exhibit Dates Now through July 7 Gallery Hours Wed.-Fri., 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Sat.-Sun., 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Gallery Location 2903 Carlsbad Boulevard in Carlsbad

Built to Spill happy to be headlining weekend Ship in the Woods festival By Ed Condran
Built to Spill, which will headline A Ship in the Woods Music and Art Festival, which is slated for Saturday and Sunday at Felicita County Park, is all about playing fests. “Those events are always a great time,” vocalist-guitarist Doug Martsch says. “Not only do you get to perform. You get to see all of these cool bands you don't normally have the chance to see.” Bill Callahan of Smog fame, Shabazz Palaces, Treepeople, Hiron Cone and EMA, are just some of the many recording artists on the bill. “It sounds like its going to be an amazing time,” Martsch says while calling from Pittsburgh. “I’m expecting to have a blast.” Martsch is enjoying life as an independent recording artist. The quirky vocalistguitar hero’s band Built to Spill was signed to Warner Bros. for 20 years. After releasing seven albums for the corporate entity, Martsch and his bandmates are enjoying life as independent rockers. “It’s cool having no agenda,” Martsch says. “We’re not close to releasing an album and it’s fine. We don’t have any label plans at all and it’s good. What’s great about where we are now is that we’re just plugging away and focusing on the music. Nothing else matters right now. An album will come out eventually but there is no shortage of Built to Spill material.” Martsch is on the money. The band has released a number of acclaimed guitar-driven albums, such as 1997’s “Perfect From Now

On,” 2009’s “There is No drummer Steve Gere, since Enemy” and 1999’s “Keep It the group formed during the early ’90s, which was the era Like a Secret.” The latter remains a fan favorite since the songs are cerebral, dense and atmospheric. The cuts feature inventive guitar lines and occasionally humorous lyrics. “So much came together during the making of that album,” Martsch says. “The songs still sound fresh and timeless because of the production. It was a very cool time for the band because we finally connected with an audience.” However, Built to Spill nearly broke up after touring behind "Keep It Like a Secret." It would have been an unusual move considering the band’s profile was rising. “On paper it doesn’t make sense but the reality was that I was burnt out in my late 20s playing with this band,” Martsch says. “It happens since we’re human. “I made a solo record and spent time away from the band. But we got together not long after I made the JUN 23 solo album.” It’s never been about JUN 30 fame for Martsch and Built to Spill, which also includes bassist Jason Albertini and
of the reluctant rock star. There were a number of slacker rock bands, such as Pavement and the Replacements, who wrote about their reluctance to be rock stars. “I don’t know if young people can understand it but there was a time in which being famous was not priority,” Martsch said. “You just focused on your craft. You didn’t need more than that. Things have changed a lot.” Martsch can’t help but notice how many young band’s lead instrument is the Mac Book.
“That’s funny but true,” Martsch says. “When you see that you might think that the guitar is on the way out but that’s not true at all. The guitar bands are surviving and they’re here to stay. People talk about genres disappearing but nothing will go away. Bluegrass will be here 100 years from now and there will be people jamming away on guitar. I’ll be playing guitar in this band for years to come. I can’t think of anything better to do.” Others scheduled to perform include Willis Earl Beal, Tara Jane O’Neil, Lon-
nie Holley, Moon Diagrams, Drew McDowall, Ice Balloons, Cafe Ale, Sun Foot, Pall Jenkins, Lori Goldston, Hexa, Spooky Cigarette and Island Boy.

Woman killed by suspected drunk driver in Escondido ESCONDIDO — Authorities have identified an Oceanside mother who was struck and killed by an alleged drunken driver while walking across a street with her boyfriend. Esmeralda Eusebio Guerrero, 32, was fatally injured about 12:40 a.m. June 3 when she was struck by a Ford Ranger in the 1000 block of East Washington Avenue near North Ash Street, according to Escondido police and the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. Witnesses told police the Ford pickup was traveling west on East Washington Avenue when the driver approached the couple crossing the street, swerved to avoid Eusebio Guerrero’s
boyfriend but instead hit her, Escondido police Lt. Mike Kearney said. The victim was taken to Palomar Medical Center with head injuries, multiple internal injuries and two broken femurs. She was pronounced dead a little more than five hours after the crash. Family members who established a GoFundMe page for Eusebio Guerrero said she was the mother to a 10-year-old daughter and asked for donations to help with funeral costs. The driver, Joel Francisco Juan, 32, has been charged with gross vehicular manslaughter and two counts of felony driving under the influence. — City News Service
Man sought in groping incident VISTA — A man jumped a woman on a Vista roadside on June 11 and sexually battered her before she was able to break free and escape. The victim was walking in the 500 block of Civic Center Drive about 1 p.m. when she noticed that a stranger in a black shortsleeved T-shirt was following her on a black BMXstyle bicycle, according to sheriff’s officials. Moments later, the man, who appeared to be about 20, grabbed the woman and tried to pull
her off the sidewalk toward a nearby building, Sgt. Daniel Harrison said. As she resisted, the attacker pushed her to the ground and groped her until she was able to free herself and run off. The assailant got back on his bicycle and rode away, Harrison said. The perpetrator is described as a thin, clean-shaven, roughly 5-foot-6-inch, 150-pound white man with short, wavy black hair. — City News Service

Vista Strawberry Festival draws largest crowd ever By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — The TriCity Medical Center Vista Strawberry 2018 Festival returned for its eighth annual event May 27, and it was a huge hit. This year’s festival had its highest rate of attendance ever at 110,000 visitors. The previous year was 100,000. There was something for everyone, including a 10K and 5K, entertainment, food and more in downtown Vista. Vista Chamber of Commerce CEO Bret Schanzenbach called the festival a huge success this year. “We had more runners
than ever before, more vendors than ever before and more attendees than ever,” Schanzenbach said. “It is very exciting to experience the growth of the event over the past nine years from a sleepy street fair to a major festival.” Nearly 450 street vendors took part in the day. Schanzenbach said they had tremendous feedback for the wide diversity of activities which consisted of the 10K, 5K, five entertainment stages, contests all day long, a craft beer garden with nine Vista microbreweries and a food court and kids’ carnival area. “People shared with us that it was like attending a county fair, but with no entry fee,” Schanzenbach said. For the 10K, the runner in the lead with the fastest time was Joshua Espinoza from Tustin, California. “Joshua finished our hilly challenging course in 32:30,” Schanzenbach said. “Our fastest 5K runner was Matthew Seat, who complet-
ed the race in 15:32.” The race started and ended at the festival in Vista — every runner who crossed the finish line received a medal and fresh strawberries. Also new this year was the debut of Vista’s Got Talent competition. The top prize winner who received $500 was the JAM Fusion Band hailing from San Diego. The band consisted of musicians and singers ranging from 9 to 16 years of age. Throughout the day, Strawberry Festival-goers had the opportunity to see other types of stage entertainment such as local bands and dance groups, like Step Nicely Dance. The owner of Step Nicely Dance, Pamela Jackson of Oceanside, said this was their third year participating in the fun-filled event. Step Nicely Dance is a soul-line-dancing group for people of all ages. “Approximately 40 dancers of various skill levels came together to both entertain and engage the
crowd at the Flag Pavilion Stage,” said Jackson, adding how they are looking forward to doing this again next year. Schanzenbach said on a personal level the most memorable part of this year’s event was the expansion of the footprint of the event onto South Santa Fe Ave. “We were concerned that the vendors in that area might not get as much attention as other parts of the festival,” he said. “But it turned out to be a huge hit, and it was jammed with people all day long.” Schanzenbach said putting on an event of this magnitude takes some extraordinary people to help. “I would like to thank my staff first and my board of directors second for their efforts to make this happen,” he said. “We had almost 200 volunteers who helped in one way or another, and we could not put this event on without all of them.”
CSUSM students to collaborate with city SAN MARCOS — Cal State San Marcos students have embarked on a program aimed at bringing more volunteers to the city of San Marcos, university and city officials said on June 7. The city and university recently introduced the Democracy in Action program in which student groups tackle city issues. Unlike an internship, students are
not given direction. Instead, like consultants, students make research-based recommendations. Their first project: bolstering volunteer numbers at the San Marcos Senior Activity Center, which serves about 7,000 seniors per month. About 30 students developed strategies to attract additional volunteers to the center. Recommendations
include creating a formal orientation process, designing additional marketing materials and identifying missed opportunities to recruit volunteers. Democracy in Action shows students how classroom knowledge applies to the outside world, said CSUSM adjunct faculty member Eliza Bigham, who oversaw the students under the university's Department of Human Development. City staff are fine-tuning the volunteer-acquisition strategies, which should be introduced in the next few months. Volunteers who lead activities as well as work the front desk and computer lab of the senior center are integral to the facility's success, city Parks and Recreation Manager Brenda Sylvia said. They allow the center to offer services at lower costs, which benefits seniors on fixed incomes. Going forward, Democracy in Action could impact additional city departments, Sylvia said. — City News Service

y the time you read this you may be a bit burned out on the Anthony Bourdain tributes and that is understandcompletely able. I wrote an homage to him and writer Jim Harrison in a 2012 column that celebrated his life while he was on his upward trajectory. Part of me is confused on how a guy with so much going for him could be so depressed that he takes his own life. But I am not an expert on depression and his reasoning is something none of us will ever have full insight into. All we can do is be grateful for the vastly entertaining, insightful, and no fluff body of work that he created. It is also an inspiration to know that his success came fairly late in life. It was not until his mid-40â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that he began his meteoric rise to full on celebrity. As someone who dabbled in his world, he had my dream gig. He had the ultimate freedom to speak his

mind in an unfiltered manner that did not have much patience for fakes, frauds and posers. He also had the opportunity to meet and eat with some of the most interesting people in the world. His lunch of noodles on plastic tables with then President Obama in Vietnam brought a tear to my eye. His love of Detroit, my hometown, and the several episodes he did there made me proud to be from there and love him even more.
I made it a point to turn my son Quinn on to his show early in his life and I feel lucky that he quickly embraced him. Quinn had a bit of an international upbringing to begin with and Bourdain helped instill a wanderlust in him that is in full force today. I made it a point to spread the word of Bourdain on a regular basis as I felt that the more people who watched his show and were turned on to his style,
the better off humanity would be for it. On a lighter note, we both fancied the same blue and white gingham shirt for our eating adventures. He seemed to wear his in every episode and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through many over the years. The joke amongst my friends was who was copying whom. My sister dug up a photo from me as a little kid in one so I claimed victory in that fictional debate. As I mentioned, Bourdain and Jim Harrison were both huge influences on me and Bourdain was a big fan of Jim Harrison, which brought me even more joy. They are both gone now but they left their individual marks in their own unique ways. Below are some excerpts from my 2012 column that convey what they both meant to me. The last line in one of the quotes from Bourdain is especially haunting given his cause of death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Culinary celebrities are a dime a dozen these days. Remember the guy who made it to the second round of Top Chef in season two? Me neither but you can bet he is milking his appearance for all itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth.

ENCINITAS — After 37 years in Encinitas Village, Lawrance Contemporary Furniture celebrated a grand opening in its new home on May 19. The new location, in Encinitas Marketplace, boasts a larger showroom to display Southern California’s most impressive collection of modern furniture and accessories. Haimsohn, Howard owner and president of Lawrance, is enthusiastic about the new digs. “We are excited about the new showroom,” he said. “It’s a showcase building, which we created with the help of the landlord. We used a renowned local architect, David Keitel with Domus Studio Architects, to create a space that represents who we are. The building, with its sophisticated and clean architecture, is representative of what we do on the inside.” Since 1937, Lawrance has been a leading supplier of contemporary furniture, first from its San Diego showroom. Today, Haimsohn runs

is eager to move the project one step closer to fruition. “We’re extremely excited because the commission voted first to confirm that we followed the process and second that we incorporated everything they asked for so the Board of Supervisors can consider us for approval,” Rilling said. “We believe this is a great community and is going to provide attainable homes for working families in exactly the right location, along the I-15 growth corridor.” Lilac Hills Ranch calls

the family business side by side with his wife Julie with help from their children, Joel Haimsohn and Bethany DelConte. “My grandparents started this business and now I’m the third generation in my family to run it,” Haimsohn said. “My son and daughter are now the fourth generation to be involved. We understand and appreciate the importance of family-run businesses and buy local
whenever we can.” Through the generations, Lawrance’s commitment to its customers hasn’t wavered. “We have always been committed to providing our customers with the biggest selection of top brands and styles,” Haimsohn said. “Whether you are looking to redesign your bedroom, dining room, living room, family room, media room or home office, we are here to help you design
any space according to your taste and budget.” The decision to open a showroom in Encinitas nearly four decades ago was well thought out. “I was just a kid when we opened the second store,” Haimsohn said. “We recognized we were getting a lot of customers coming to us from coastal North County so we did our research and decided that this is where we needed to be. The architecture, the homes and the peo-
for 1,746 homes and a 200unit assisted living facility on 608 acres in the largely rural area adjacent to Valley Center and south of Fallbrook. It also includes more than 200 acres of parks and open space and 16 miles of trails, three community centers and pools, a village square and 90,000 square foot of retail, office and commercial space. The project is now under the control of a new development team, Ranch Capital LLC, and its subsidiary, Village Communities. Ranch Capital was a financial backer of the earlier version of the project headed by Randy Goodson
of Accretive Investments. Goodson and Accretive are no longer involved. The developer and residents have sparred over the project for more than a decade. Supporters have argued that the project is an example of smart growth, and it would help the county ease a growing housing crunch while also preserving open space, developing parks and shopping that will keep motorists from driving long trips for amenities. They have called it “San Elijo Hills on steroids.” But opponents have argued that the project doesn’t meet the county’s
general plan standards, doesn’t have an adequate fire protection plan and doesn’t adequately address the increase in traffic to the area — it is estimated that the project will generate nearly 15 times the traffic that nearby Valley Center sees daily. Following the Planning Commission’s approval of the project in 2015 with several recommendations, the developer at the time, Accretive Investments, pushed for a ballot initiative as opposed to fully incorporating the commission’s provisos, which included a turnkey K-8 school, lowering fire response times to five min-
ple here are a great fit for our style of furniture.” “You will discover incredible furniture from around the world created by award-winning designers,” Haimsohn said. “We are very particular about the companies we work with. We make every effort to curate a unique collection of products, much of which is made here in the U.S. and a lot out of Europe, especially Italy.” It isn’t just the furnishings that Haimsohn is proud of. “We also have a team of friendly and knowledgeable Design Consultants, and our customers appreciate that,” he said. A small but happy team — only about 25 employees between the two locations — Lawrance employees’ love for their jobs is evident. “We have a number of long-term employees, many who have been with us for 10 to 15 years or more and one gentleman who has been with us in Encinitas since we opened,” Haimsohn said. Haimsohn recognizes the importance of treating
employees well. “At the end of the day, it isn’t just our great selection or quality pieces that keep our customers coming back, it’s the service,” he said. “I have learned that the best way to make sure your customers are treated well is to treat your employees well.” Lawrance’s commitment to its customers is evident in its offer of complimentary inhome design consultations. “Our team will help make your decisions about color, style and placement easy and affordable,” Haimsohn said. “The design plans will help you to fully visualize how your room’s color, flow, furniture and accessories will work together to create a harmonious environment before you buy anything. Count on us to help you turn your home into a modern, tasteful and comfortable space.” Lawrance Contemporary Furniture’s new showroom is located at 172 N. El Camino Real in Encinitas.

utes from the proposed seven- to nine-minute time estimated by developers, as well as several private and public road improvements. Voters rejected the ballot proposal in November 2016. The developer unveiled its revised plan in early 2018, boasting that it was the “county’s first carbon-neutral village in San Diego County and the first community to meet the county’s guidelines for New Villages, which is the highest standard a project can achieve under the County’s General Plan,” according to the website. Among the changes from the former project included the installation of electric vehicle charging stations at every residence, rooftop solar on every residence and 45 percent of non-residential building roof space, implementing a variety of carpool, transit, and vehicle-sharing programs, and achieving carbon neutrality through the purchase of carbon offsets. Planning staff recommended the commission revisit its approval, citing a court case that it said demonstrated that the changes made warranted further review. Staff additionally noted that environmental review and traffic studies done on the current plan showed that the traffic impacts have significantly increased since the previous approval, though this could not factor into the commission’s decision. Ann Moore, an attorney representing the developer, argued that the case staff used to justify its recommendations said that the changes must change the project’s land use to warrant a rehearing. None of the land-use designations were changed from the 2015 approval to
the current project, Moore said. A number of residents showed up to the Friday morning meeting in support of the development, wearing olive green shirts and urging the commission to move the project forward. Fallbrook resident Paul Schumann said he likened the changes to the project to cosmetic improvements on a car. “We now have a better car, but we don’t have a different car,” Schumann said. “It’s the same car.” James Gordon, one of the chief representatives of the group of residents opposed to the project, said the group could turn to the courts to force the project back to the commission level if they can’t successfully lobby the Board of Supervisors to return it. “I am surprised, I know they didn’t want to hear the project again, they alluded to that at an earlier meeting,” Gordon said. “But I was surprised that they went against staff. Thumbs up to their staff for getting it right though.” Gordon said the group of residents, which has written thousands of correspondences and spent an equal amount of hours on the project since its inception, would gird for the Board of Supervisors hearing, which could occur as early as this fall. Rilling said he was disappointed to hear that residents might sue to force the Planning Commission to rehear the project, which would further delay it. “We’re following all of the goals and policies of the General Plan and all of the new state laws,” Rilling said. “It’s unfortunate that a few people that don’t want more people to afford to live here would use litigation as a threat.”

Student arrested after gun found in backpack SAN MARCOS — A 13-year-old boy was arrested June 11 on suspicion of brining a gun to San Marcos Middle School. Deputies were called to the school at 650 W. Mission Road after administrators were alerted by a student that another student had a gun in his backpack, according to San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Daniel Deese. The suspect was brought to the office and asked if he had a gun, which he admitted to hav-
ing in his backpack, Deese said. School staff checked the backpack and saw what appeared to be a gun and called sheriff’s deputies, who then found an unloaded .22 caliber handgun, he said. The student was arrested and booked into juvenile hall, Deese said. It does not appear there were any threats made against the school, Deese said.

A new concept in carefree, maintenance-free living
fully tried to thwart the school’s construction based partly on these safety concerns. The city and San Marcos Unified School District have taken steps over the past two years to slow down traffic approaching the school. In addition to the standard 25-mile-per-hour speed limit in the immediate vicinity of the school, the city lowered the speed limit on the northbound approach of San Elijo Road from 50 to 45 miles per hour. The city also installed a new traffic signal control at the school’s driveway, a high-visibility crosswalk, speed reduction bars along the downhill approach to
the school, as well as radar speed feedback signs in an effort to discourage speeding. The city is also in the process of installing new signs with arrows and raised pavement to alert drivers of the school and curve in the road. “By partnering with the community and school district to educate parents, students and drivers along with enhanced engineering and enforcement, the city will continue working to ensure feedback provided about traffic safety issues in the area will be considered in the adoption of any new recommended solutions,” MacDonald said.

VISTA — With the summer months around the corner, the Boys & Girls Club of Vista is gearing up for camp season. This year, something new is on the horizon for military families. According to Ellen Clark, director of development at the Boys & Girls Club of Vista, this summer the club will be offering one week of camp free to North County’s active military dependents ages 5 to 18. And the $50 annual membership fee will be waived for new military dependent registrations for the camp. The membership extends to the end of the year and provides military families access to the club in the afternoon hours on camp days and even after school during the fall. “The military is such an integral part of our community and this is a great opportunity for the club to support these families who sacrifice so much,” Clark said. CEO Matt Koumaras echoed the same. For him, it was about highlighting all that military families do. “The club wanted to honor our local military families and recognize their sacrifices,” Koumaras said. “We can help give the kids a great summer. They’ll make new friends at the club, have fun and create lifelong memories in a safe and positive environment.” Clark wants everyone to know that in order to participate, families must register no later than the Friday prior to the desired week for their children. Summer Camp runs on weekdays from June 8 to Aug. 10 with the exception for July 4. For club members not enrolled in camp, which has a price tag of $30 a day or $120 per week, they can drop in free of charge from 2 to 6 p.m. Clark also shared how there are sponsorship opportunities for community members and businesses to help pay for campers. On average, about 125 kids ranging from 5 to 18 years of age take part in summer camp. Most, however, are between 6 to 11 years old. A complimentary lunch and afternoon snack are available for the kids, too. “Our staff have fun themed activities planned for each week in order to keep it fresh,” Clark said. “These activities include meaningful and engaging learning opportunities along with some great optional field trips.

spider veins and venous ulcers. With highly trained staff and a new, state-ofthe-art ocean view facility, Oceana Vein Specialists are able to help more patients than ever. A common misconception is that varicose vein procedures are not covered by insurance. In fact, most treatments for symptomatic
varicose veins are covered by insurance and Medicare, without a referral, as long as certain requirements are met. Oceana Vein Specialists are experts in obtaining insurance pre-authorization and accept all major insurances, Medicare and Medi-Cal. Oceana Vein Specialists also provide third-party financing options through
C a r e Credit and reasonable out-ofpocket pricing options. Dr. Adam Isadore, Owner and Medical Director of Oceana Vein Specialists, is a fellowship trained Vascular and Interventional Radiologist and has dedicat-
ed his career to vein care. Dr. Isadore’s dedication to excellence and exclusive focus on venous disease of the legs has enabled him to create the most advanced vein center in North San Diego County, ensuring optimal results and happy patients. “Early in my career I decided to focus exclusively on venous disease of the legs. Our mission at Oceana Vein Specialists is to offer the most advanced vein care available, to make y o u r l e g s l o o k a n d f e e l f a n t a s t ic“ says Dr. Isadore.

System, Ambulatory Phlebectomy, Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, Spider Vein Sclerotherapy, VeinGogh Spider Vein Treatment and Compression Stocking Therapy. A treatment that is particularly exciting among the vein community is a procedure called VenaSeal. “VenaSeal allows me to treat entire vein segments with only a single needle stick, without the need for compression stockings afterward” says Dr. Isadore. Some insurances require 8-12 weeks of medical grade compression stocking therapy before definitive minimally invasive treatments will be covered. The sooner you are evaluated by Dr. Isadore, the sooner Oceana Vein Specialists can get you on your path to painfree, beautiful legs, just in time for summer!

Men: How you can improve your entire life in just one hour CARLSBAD — Many men in their 30s and beyond start to experience changes in their mental and physical health, but they just can’t pinpoint the source. The changes can be slight at first, but gradually begin to become more dominant. However, men often don’t do anything about it. “We don’t like going to the doctor,” Dr. Evan Miller said. “On top of that, we’re all busy. It’s hard to get away, and we don’t even want to go in the first place. It usually requires multiple appointments and just becomes a hassle.” GameDay Men’s Health is Miller’s answer to not only some of the health issues men face, but also the reasons they don’t do anything about it. “Thirty percent of men suffer from low testosterone levels,” Miller said. “The effects of this include low energy, feeling like
you’re in a mental fog, low libido, poor sleeping habits, loss of muscle mass and more. Men don’t realize that there is a simple and effective solution to their problems.” According to Miller, many men are reluctant to talk about the changes they experience and feel they are too busy to do anything about it anyway. “I created GameDay Men’s Health as a way to help men improve all areas of their lives, without having to expend additional time or energy,” he said. “We’ve created a comfortable space for men to come have their testosterone levels checked — and the whole process takes just one hour, one time. We test their levels, and if they qualify for treatment, they can begin immediately and they are off and running. From there, we can mail their pre-

Resident input the top ingredient at Cypress Court senior living ESCONDIDO — Jon Samus has the seemingly impossible task of trying to make 170 people happy at the same time. But he wouldn’t have it any other way. Samus is the dining services director at Cypress Court, a one-of-a-kind senior living community in Escondido. When asked how he aims to please so many people at each meal, he is quick to answer. “I just listen to them,” he said. Samus is uniquely qualified for his position at Cypress Court. He grew up around family-owned retirement communities and has a background in the restaurant industry. “My family wanted me to go into nursing or the medical field, but that wasn’t for me,” he said. “I was working as a server and eventually ended up in the kitchen. So being in the culinary field in a senior community is the perfect place for me. I love it.” Admittedly, trying to please so many people while meeting their dietary needs isn’t easy, but it’s something Samus enjoys. “It’s more than just work for me,”
he said. “I’ve never been to any senior community where the company treats you like more than staff. We are part of the Kisco family here and valued as such. They want to know what our thoughts are and our input is really valued here.” To that end, unlike other senior communities, Cypress Court doesn’t follow a corporate mandated menu for its residents. “The food we serve, the menus I create, it’s driven by what the residents want,” Samus said. “While I enjoy the creativity of cooking for enjoyment, here I’m cooking for the residents. I do it for them.” Samus spends time with the residents and his menus reflect that. “I don’t confine myself to the kitchen,” he said. “I sit down and talk with the residents, and even join them for meals as often as I can. I ask them about their lives prior to when they stopped cooking. I find out what they like as well as what they need. I use all of their wonderful ideas to come up with my menus.” “Jon is such a pleasure to work with, it warms my

heart to see the relationship between him and our residents — the hugs and smiles are endless!” said Sales Director Catt Babinski. “He truly cares about their health as well. Jon maintains that delicate balance of keeping them happy while providing healthy options that taste good and still follow any special diets. Cypress Court has two
kinds of menus, a daily specials menu and an allday dining menu. “We offer three daily specials for lunch and three for dinner,” Samus said. “We have an option of poultry, fish, or red meat which changes daily. Our all-day menu features 30 items that range from sandwiches and paninis, to flat iron prime steak and fried chicken. We also offer vegetarian, gluten-free, and
texture modified options when necessary.” What’s the most popular menu item at Cypress Court? “Hands down it’s the prime rib,” Samus said. “The residents love their prime rib. Another favorite is the chicken dumplings. I like to provide home-style cooking.” When it comes to the holidays, Samus said he finds it’s really important
to the residents that their families and friends come to feast and enjoy it. “We want to make sure our residents take pride in where they live, and food is a big part of that,” Samus said. “We offer extensive holiday menus and Thanksgiving and Mother’s Day are two of our most popular days. We really up the ante with carving stations, live cooking displays, salmon, and nearly any side dish you can think of. We collect suggestions from our residents and really try to work all of their desires into those menus.” The Dining Services Program is just one area of life at Cypress Court in which the residents’ wants and needs are addressed. “We follow what our residents want to eat,” Samus said. “By doing that, we create a home-like community. We have happier residents and create the best experience possible for our seniors.” Cypress Court is located at 1255 North Broadway in Escondido.

Exciting TV service provider saves consumers hard money COAST CITIES — Common complaints Robert “Blacky” Black hears from his new customers about their previous TV and satellite service providers are that they have felt ignored, irrelevant and unheard. When it comes to dealing with the major conglomerates, many customers — especially seniors — often feel that their backs are against the wall. Locked into a contract with a provider, with a bill up to $200 a month or more, can make you feel as if you’re being taken advantage of. Black has made it his mission the last 16 years to alleviate all of these issues for his customers. Black is president and CEO of TeQ I.Q. “We are going to change your TV experience,” he said. A San Diego resident of 20-plus years, he has more than two decades in the business. He genuinely believes that every customer is important and deserves the best support and the best technology. “We want to give support nobody else gives to small businesses and home users,” he said. “Small busi-
nesses are often overlooked by big business. The elderly are often taken advantage of. Our mantra is the 3 “P”s: to keep you Productive, Protected, and give you Piece of mind.” What TeQ I.Q. offers is different than anything else available. With just a receiver, tablet, or smartphone, your TV can become your complete home or office entertainment center. Simplicity is key, and Black helps his customers with an easy-to-use solution that doesn’t sacrifice use of the best technology available, and you can take it with you on the road. “Your TV can now do everything you can do on your computer and more,” Black said. “You can watch TV, movies, surf the web, read the news, check your email, pay your bills, Skype with your friends — anything you want.” It works using any internet connection and utilizes a simple and exclusive tile and guide-based format which makes for an easy and fun way to watch TV and use your smartphone and tablet.

“With our app, you can watch nearly any TV show or movie from the beginning of time to the present,” Black said. “You can watch everything commercial-free. It’s all there including thousands of movies. You have premium live TV as well. And you can take it anywhere with you using your tablet or a streaming stick.” The app service includes past and current on demand movies, commercial-free TV shows, live and local channels and just about anything you can think of. “We are continuously updating to add new content, increase the user experience and promote a better, more affordable way to indulge in all your digital entertainment needs.” The TeQ I.Q. app allows users to combine their TV, cable, internet and streaming services into one, and everything is accessible on both your TV and your tablet. This streamlines
the amount of devices you use, while drastically reducing your monthly payments — for good. “A lot of my customers are on fixed incomes,” he said. “We have packages beginning at $5 a month. And our pricing never goes up. The price we quote you is the price you pay!
“Ultimately it is our goal to take away our customers’ frustration,” Black said. “We don’t want you to feel alone in what can be a treacherous forum.” To that end, TeQ I.Q. offers live 24/7 support to its customers. Free installation and free training are also included and Black offers his customers a risk-free 10-day trial so he can show them just how much he stands behind TeQ I.Q.’s technology and service. “We take things that are out there, and make them better and easier to use,” Black said. True to
TeQ I.Q.’s mission of being completely accessible, Black welcomes inquiries and offers free demos at the TeQ I.Q. offices. He wants his customers to know and understand exactly what they are getting, and be there for them every step of the way. “We are a transparent company. We don’t shy away from any questions. We want all of our users to feel supported while getting the best and most comprehensive service possible.” For more information about TeQ I.Q. and to schedule a free consultation, visit www.teqiq.com/tv or call (760) 790-2200.

News of the Weird It’s a Dead Language In Charleston, South Carolina, Cara Koscinski and her whole family were looking forward to her son Jacob’s May 19 graduation party. The Post and Courier reported he had excelled in his Christian-based homeschool program, earning a 4.79 GPA and the summa cum laude distinction, an honor Koscinski included in the wording on the cake she ordered online from her local Publix store. When the software informed her “profane/special characters (are) not allowed,” Koscinski made clear that phrase was Latin, meaning “with the highest distinction,” and even included a link to a website explaining it. Still, when the cake arrived, it read: “Congratulations Jacob! Summa --- laude Class of 2018.” Jacob was embarrassed, and Koscinski had to tell her 70-year-old mother why the store had censored the word. Publix offered to remake the cake, but as Koscinski noted, “You only graduate once.” [Post and Courier, 5/22/2018]

Customers recognized for water-wise landscape VISTA — The Vista Irrigation District board of directors recognized Bill and Rachel Williams with the “Best in District” award in the district’s WaterSmart Landscape contest. The contest recognizes outstanding water-wise residential landscapes based on the criteria of overall attractiveness, appropriate plant selection, design, appropriate maintenance, and efficient methods of irrigation. During the height of the drought, the Williamses decided to replace their water intensive front and back lawn with a water efficient landscape. After hiring professionals to remove over 2,500 square feet of grass and install drip irrigation, the Williamses designed the layout and chose the water-wise plants themselves. By adding fun elements, such a horseshoe pit and outdoor seating area surrounding a fire pit, the Williamses transformed unused space into a backyard with utility. The result was
an eye-catching design incorporating decomposed granite, cactus and splashes of color from the aloe and agave families, including Coral Aloe as well as Foxtail and Century Agaves; plant selection also included Aeonium, Rosemary, Senecio and Firestick. With a majority of residential water use in San Diego County attributed to watering landscapes, regional water efficiency efforts focus on outdoor water use. By showcasing their beautiful landscape in the WaterSmart Landscape Contest, these district customers provide other homeowners with ideas and incentives to reduce their own outdoor water use by installing attractive and efficient water-wise landscaping. For more information about the contest and to see more examples of WaterSmart landscaping, visit landscapecontest.com. Visit vidwater.org or call (760) 597-3107 to find out more ways to save water.

Operation Quail did not fail!
ome on. Admit it. You have been on the edge of your seats waiting for news on our incubating quail eggs. Well, rest easy. Things are booming in Quailville. For those who may have missed the quail egg column, my husband decided to hatch them to replenish the quail population in our local watershed. Why? You’ll need to chat with him for those details. For weeks, the 28 eggs incubated on the sink in the bathroom. My husband is kind of a Debbie Downer, always expecting the worst scenario on these projects of his. “We’ll be lucky if we get a 50 percent

Then I knew “failure to hatch” would be all on me. I kept asking if there was any egg action, but my cautious hubby assured me it was too soon. The next day one hatched. I heaved a huge sigh of relief. Later that night anoth-

Cheesecake Factory, contractors fined $4.57M over wages REGION — The state of California on June 11 found Cheesecake Factory and its janitorial subcontractors liable in a $4.57 million wage theft case related to hundreds of underpaid employees at eight San Diego and Orange County locations, including the Escondido location. The Labor Commissioner's Office found that 559 janitorial workers are due $3.94 million in minimum wages, overtime, liquidated damages, waiting time penalties, and meal and rest period premiums.

ty stock a bit so to speak. I can count on one hand the TV chef personalities that I can take through an entire episode. Bourdain, Mario Batali, Jacques Pepin, Ming Tsai, and Giada De Laurentiis are on my current list. OK, Giada may not be the grittiest of them but she sure looks good cooking and has a solid grasp of what she is doing. “Anthony Bourdain and Jim Harrison are both straight shooters and great storytellers. There is no fluff with these guys. They tell it like it is and are astute observers of the human condition and never put them-
State investigators found that janitors frequently began shifts around midnight and worked until morning without proper meal or rest breaks. After working for eight hours, janitors couldn’t leave until Cheesecake Factory kitchen managers conducted walk-throughs that frequently led to additional tasks. That resulted in each worker logging up to 10 hours of unpaid overtime each week, according to investigators. Americlean Janitorial Services Corp., the Cheesecake Factory’s jan-
selves on a pedestal or claim to be without fault. In fact, it’s their faults that make them even more appealing. You can watch a conversation they had together on No Reservations by going go www.travelchannel.com and searching for “A chat with Jim Harrison.” “We all know Anthony Bourdain and his well-chronicled rise from line cook in New Jersey to Chef at Les Halles in Manhattan to his best-selling first book ‘Kitchen Confidential’ that he parlayed into a very cool career eating around the world on his shows “No Reservations” and ‘The Layover.’ His star has risen dramatically over the past few years and he

Cheesecake Factory janitorial contractors were also accused of wage violations in 2007 and 2010.

is often seen judging “Top Chef,” playing himself on the Simpsons, writing for the HBO show ‘Treme,’ while continuing to write. He announced recently he would be leaving the Travel Channel for a similar gig on CNN. “A common thread shared between Bourdain and Harrison is their lust for life and ability to get better at what they do with age. They are both known for great quotes or passages from books so I’ve included a couple from each below. “Few things are more beautiful to me than a bunch of thuggish, heavily tattooed line cooks moving around each other like ballerinas on a busy Satur-
day night. Seeing two guys who'd just as soon cut each other's throats in their off hours moving in unison with grace and ease can be as uplifting as any chemical stimulant or organized religion.’ “We know, for instance, that there is a direct, inverse relationship between frequency of family meals and social problems. Bluntly stated, members of families who eat together regularly are statistically less likely to stick up liquor stores, blow up meth labs, give birth to crack babies, or commit suicide.” — Anthony Bourdain More at www.lick-theplate.com

TASTE OF WINE CONTINUED FROM 15
than other parts, a different vibe where the owners are winemakers or on site pouring their wines. You find 41 wineries with microclimates that cast a complex thread of weather conditions, from fog to relentless sun. The Hagners love to snug up to the backcountry wineries on roads less traveled. As Dry Creek Road narrows, they discovered Truett Hurst Winery and their ‘60s theme passport party. Among tasting favorites were the 2016 Three Vineyards Old Vine Zinfandel, close to rocket fuel but oh so “yummy,” Nancine’s favorite descriptor. The other Truett Hurst memory maker was “Lucy,” a well-balanced red blend Zin at a great price point ($42). DeLorimier is another well respected winery on the Dry Creek trail, pouring a 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon ($42) and a 2015 Italian Primitivo which some say was the genesis of Zinfandel ($36). By happy accident, our “roadies” happened on to a rustic old winery on a ratchety one-way road, with the old world Italian name of Patroni Winery. It’s just a few miles north of the city of Sonoma. The amazing wine caves are enough to drive wine lovers into the tasting room. Once in, the 2011 Tuscan Sangiovese should keep you there. Lorenzo Petroni somehow managed to import a Brunello varietal and make it a great wine in Sonoma soil at 800 feet and extreme rock and stone. Niner Winery is a Paso Robles standout on the west side of Highway 46 near the 101, three near-perfect properties of some 223 acres in Paso and in Edna Valley close by. Our “roadies” were privileged to meet top hand Andy Niner, CEO and president. Niner emphasized
the winery’s focus on “sustainability and high quality wines.” They are known for their estate grown wines like Cabernet, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. My personal favorite of the blends is the 2014 Niner Fogcatcher from two of their vineyards, Heart Hill and Bootjack Ranch ($100). In it, you’ll find 37 percent Cab Franc, 29 percent Petite Verdot, 28 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 5 percent Malbec. Now that’s a full house of rich and glamorous wine. And 28 months in new French oak seals the deal. Congratulations to winemaker Patrick Muran on a masterpiece. See more at ninerwine.com.

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens addition honors longtime contributor By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — The Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is a place where its members and volunteers work hard to create an environment where nature inspires visitors of all ages. The newest site at this 14acre location is the Heritage Rose Garden, which pays tribute to the late Ivy Bodin, who was a longtime member, board member and volunteer at the gardens. “Ivy was a rosarian, and he also was a lover of culture and music. He collected quilts and art — he was just an amazing man,” said Nancy B. Jones, director of the Children’s Program at the gardens. Bodin passed away in April 2017 and left some bequests, including to the Alta Vista Botanical Gardens. Jones said that gardens used a portion of it to renovate a backyard area to be named the Heritage Rose Garden. The area will also be used as a venue for weddings and special events. Landscape architects Naomi and Bill Stein, who are also members of the gardens’ board, designed the Heritage Rose Garden. The couple has also created other features such as the music garden and children’s garden at the same locale. Naomi Stein heads up the Design Committee and holds a certif-

icate from MiraCosta College in Landscape Design and Engineering. She had a career as a licensed landscape contractor for 33 years as well as owned and operated a company with her husband for more than 30 years. Stein said she knew Bodin through the gardens and described him as extremely supportive with her endeavors there. “Ivy always donated garden
art for our fundraisers, supplied me with plant ID markers and gave me encouragement to do what I thought was right with regards to plantings and design,” Stein said. “Ivy was a very warm and genuine person.” Stein said Bodin loved giving her tips on rose care and placement. “When we put in the medicinal herb garden, he donated two
apothecary roses which were rare and difficult to find,” Stein said. “It brings me much happiness to have designed this beautiful rose reception garden to honor Ivy Bodin.” Stein was also quick to point out how she was assisted by Bodin’s friends, Becky Yianilos and James Waldmin, who were instrumental in locating, obtaining and identifying their new collection of
85 Heritage roses. “The idea of heritage roses is that they are not the same tea roses that you can buy at Lowes or Home Depot. They are roses that have been culled, propagated and are older roses,” Jones said. An archway was also installed where climbing roses will grow. Beneath the arch are pavers recognizing community and business donors. Some supporters include the late Gloria McClellan, Vista Lions Club and the Women’s Club of Vista. The pavers were always there but were out of sight. Stein moved them to a more visible area. The Heritage Rose Garden took less than a couple of months to construct and create. A private dedication of the Rose Heritage Garden took place on June 10 for Bodin’s close family and friends. While it was a celebration of a new feature, it was also a time of remembering Bodin. Jones described Bodin as a gentle man and a gentleman. When she’s in the Heritage Rose Garden, memories of Bodin come to mind. “I can’t help but think of Ivy’s gentleness and his smile — we so miss having Ivy with us,” Jones said. “But in this garden, when I think of him, I cannot help but smile. He left such loveliness behind for us and for the generations to come.”
