Hotel robot sparks excitement, criticism By Aaron Burgin
A new “employee” roaming the halls of the new Fairfield Inn and Suites in San Marcos is getting a lot of attention — for better or for worse. “Hubert” is a 2-foottall, stainless steel “relay robot” that looks like a trash receptacle, but it actually delivers items to guests’ rooms such as shampoo, drinks and towels. Hotel owners say that the bot has stolen the show at the hotel, as guests can be frequently seen snapping pictures or taking cellphone videos of Hubert on its delivery runs. “It has been phenomenal, people are following it around, they are using
it to see how it works and wanting to know how it gets to the rooms,” said Cameron Lamming, co-owner of RAR Hospitality, which owns and operates the hotel. “There are often two or three kids filming it with their cell phones and following it around.” Hubert is guided through the hotel by a series of sensors throughout the establishment. When the front desk gets a call, they log the request into the system, grab the item, put it into Hubert’s “head” compartment and program the room number into its system. The robot then rolls to the elevator and can call the elevator and the floor
automatically. Once it is out, the robot rolls to the room and sends a call to the guest’s hotel phone alerting them of the robot’s arrival. Once the item has been delivered, Hubert returns to the front desk. “It’s efficient, it’s quick and spares the front desk a lot of time delivering sundries to the room and allows them to focus on arriving and departing guests,” Lamming said. Lamming said the robot is part of the company’s strategy to introduce automation into the hospitality industry, which has been slower to embrace the trend compared to other branches of the industry, such as restaurants and fast-food

OCEANSIDE — Shortly after 1 p.m. on June 13, 911 calls flooded in reporting heavy smoke coming from the northern area of the Oceanside Municipal Golf Course. Twenty-nine firefighters responded to the blaze, including two firefighters battling the flames from a helicopter. The incident began as a heavy brush fire burning up the slope behind the golf course. It progressed rapidly due to 12 to 15 mile per hour winds. When firefighters arrived the fire had already consumed 2 acres. A unified command was established with Camp Pendleton and a direct attack to slow the fire was launched. A strike team also defended the Pilgrim Creek Estates community, where residents were able to shelter in place. A voluntary evacuation location was set up at the community center for residents’ needs. During firefighting efforts a drone entered the area, slowing air water drop operations. An area advisory was sent out to cease all use of drones. Conditions were cleared and air efforts successfully slowed the fire. This allowed ground crews to bring the fire under control within three hours. Mop-up of hot spots continued all day June 14. The fire burned 78 acres in Oceanside and 7 acres in Camp Pendleton. Douglas Drive was temporarily closed from North River Road to Vandergrift Boulevard during the fire. One firefighter was transported to TriCity Medical Center for minor injuries. The cause of the fire is believed to be arson. Jose Torres was questioned as a suspect, and detained by Oceanside Police on an unrelated warrant. The incident is still under investigation.
Vista’s Wolters catching on with the Colorado Rockies By Jay Paris

The Rockies’ Tony Wolters settles in and easily squats behind the plate. But at one time, he had to squint to see a vision others saw first. “You picture your whole life at your position,’’ Wolters said. “I grew up dreaming about being a professional baseball player, being a shortstop and making diving plays.’’ Wolters had done that since starring in Rancho Buena Vista Little League. He would duplicate that performance at every level until being drafted by the Cleveland Indians in 2010. As a Rancho Buena Vista High School shortstop.
But as of right now, he’s the starting catcher for the first-place Colorado Rockies. Things change and they did so in a positive way for Wolters in 2013. He swapped his infielder’s glove for one belonging to catchers and he’s caught on with the Rockies. “You talk about switching from shortstop to catcher in that short of a period of time?” Colorado manager Bud Black said. “That’s amazing. It seems like yesterday he was at RBV versus La Costa Canyon and now he’s at Petco Park.” Wolters’ journey was unique, which makes his story more compelling. Embracing the tools of ignorance and shedding his hope of being a shortstop wasn’t easy.
“When you get the opportunity to play another position, you try to get those visions in your head,” Wolters said. “That is one of the biggest things, the image, the picture. Can I see myself as a catcher and making a really cool block or throwing somebody out or getting a pitcher through a game? “Just trying to get that picture in my mind was difficult because I hadn’t seen it before. Once I got that I said, ‘OK, I can do this up and I’m up for the challenge.’ ” Still making the pledge and producing in the Majors is a considerable lift. “This is a tough one,” said TURN TO WOLTERS ON 24

San Diego Food Bank helps entire county By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and North County Food Bank work diligently to help raise awareness that hunger exists in San Diego County. Both organizations provide food to those in need with the aid of their team, which also includes its invaluable volunteers. Once a month at the city of Vista’s Gloria McClellan Center, eligible Vista residents 60 and older can take part in the Senior Food Program by receiving 30-pound food boxes. James Floros, the chief executive officer and president of Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank and North County Food Bank, was quick to point out that the Gloria McClellan Center is one of the many places that food is distributed in Vista. “We are in Vista all the time because we have different programs that we’re doing there,” Floros said. “We provide food to more than 400 nonprofits.” The San Diego Food Bank is celebrating its 40th anniversary and it acquired the North County Food Bank in 2015. “We do 177 distributions each month countywide,” he said. Floros explained that the Gloria McClellan Center is part of that distribu-
tion number. According to Floros, there are 10 nonprofits in Vista, and the San Diego Food Bank is one of their primary food sources. “We help empower our nonprofit partners to have the food they need to serve their people and then we do our own distributions as well,” Floros said. Floros wants people to know that the senior population is just one demographic in need. The biggest misperception is that food banks are primarily serving the homeless or those on welfare. “Nothing could be further from the truth,” he said. “While we serve the homeless, they are actually less than 5 percent of our service population. We are helping people who are struggling to get by who need probably more of a hand up than a handout.” Floros explained that two-thirds of its service population has at least one wage earner in the home. San Diego Food Bank is there to bridge the gap in the hunger community by assisting residents in need with signing up for CalFresh. Floros went on to say that their service population is the working poor, children who live in poverty, active duty military and their dependents, veterans and their dependents and

seniors. “When it’s all said and done, the San Diego Food Bank and the North County Food Bank is feeding about 370,000 people a month,” Floros said. For the senior population, Floros said his data shows that 10,500 older adults in San Diego County are receiving food boxes like the ones distributed at the Gloria McClellan Center in Vista. Inside the 30-pound box of food is a balanced diet as prescribed by the USDA. Floros went on to say that this program is done in conjunction with the federal government.
While foods may vary a bit every month, the box contains protein, canned meat, canned vegetables, canned fruits, pasta and a two-pound block of cheese. “So one of the things we do as an agency is we have to make over 10,000 of those boxes every month,” he said, adding that they have 20,000 volunteers. “Our volunteers are an actual integral part of our supply chain.” According to Floros, the value of its volunteers from last year was $1.5 million in free labor. With one in six people food insecure in San Diego County, the need for com-
munity support is ongoing. In addition to volunteering, individuals could host a food drive or donate food directly. “And financial contributions go a long way,” Floros said. “We can actually take $1 and leverage that into five meals. If someone donates $10, we are going to turn that around into 50 meals.” To learn more about the San Diego Food Bank including senior food boxes at Vista’s Gloria McClellan Center, other distribution sites, volunteer opportunities and donations, call (866) 350-FOOD or visit SanDiegoFoodBank.org.
New gun range coming to San Marcos SAN MARCOS — A groundbreaking was held June 5 and construction is set to begin soon for the North County Shooting Center, a new indoor, recreational firearms range, in a planned 17,500-square-foot facility at 1440 Descanso Ave. The new range is being supported by San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond, San Marcos Vice Mayor Rebecca Jones, San Marcos City Councilwoman Kristal Jabara and the San Diego County Gun Owners. The state-of-the-art firearms learning and training facility will feature 20 lanes and more than 400 square feet of meeting space for educational classes for all experience levels. It will also feature a training simulator built by Ti Training Corp., a firearms simulation technology company. The interactive simulator will feature more than 800 different scenarios for training using a wide range of force options, including taser, baton and commonly used firearms. Darin Prince and Stan Tuma, owners of North County Firearms, a retail facility at 120 North Pacific St., said they have been planning the new North County Shooting Center facility for the past five years.

Volunteers needed for senior shuttle services Escondido dives into By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — To encourage senior independence, the city of Vista Senior Services offers transportation options for its older residents. In addition to its shopping shuttle service and discounted taxi scrip, Out & About Vista also provides volunteer drivers who offer door-to-door service to assist its residents who are 60 and older. The popularity of the program is triggering a demand for more volunteer drivers. According to Veronica Giancola, the transportation and travel coordinator with the city of Vista’s Gloria McClellan Adult Activity and Resource Center, Out &
About helps seniors who live in Vista. Older adults are offered various transportation choices to get to their medical appointments, grocery stores and other destination essentials. Giancola described the program, which was established nearly 17 years ago, as fulfilling a great need in the community. April data reveals that 214 residents used Out & About services. “We have people that need to get to medical appointments that have no other means of transportation,” she said.Out & About is filling that gap. While the topography of Vista can be picturesque, the steep driveways and
hills may be an issue to those with mobility challenges, particularly when needing to find a van or bus stop. “Buses can’t get up their driveways, so that’s where the volunteer drivers come into play,” Giancola said. Since the demand for drivers is ongoing, Out & About is in need of more volunteer drivers. “The city provides additional supplemental insurance,” Giancola said. “The driver uses their own vehicle to pick up the rider at their home, and then they take them to their destination such as a doctor’s office, Tri-City Medical Center, physical therapy or whatever it may be.”
Giancola wants people to know that generally, the drivers remain in the vicinity when a rider is at their appointment. When completed, the volunteer receives a pickup call. Those participating in the program are offered up to 150 miles per month with volunteer drivers. For rides less than 50 miles, the roundtrip cost is $5 while any destination over 50 miles is $10. Vista residents interested in learning more about the Out & About Vista program as well as volunteer opportunities can call (760) 639-6161 or email Giancola at vgiancola@cityofvista. com.

Planning Commission recommends circulation element in split vote By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — This month the City Council will be looking at updates to the circulation element, which the Planning Commission recommended in a 4-3 vote in May. “The major changes to the Circulation Element recommended by city staff are to remove the two proposed extensions of Melrose Drive and to remove the proposed interchange at Rancho Del Oro and SR78,” Jeff Hunt, city planner, said. Louise Balma, Planning Commission chair, was among commissioners who voted against the updates. Balma said she would like to see the proposed Melrose bridge into Morro Hills remain in the plans until a decision is made on the pending North River Farms housing development, which may build 700 to 900 homes in the area. A City Council decision on the proposed development is expected in fall. “The fact that they’re pulling out the Melrose bridge from the plan, and the potential development by Integral (Communities) of (North) River Farms triggers a lot of traffic concerns,” Balma said. The bridge would provide a roadway to help with additional traffic, and add a gateway to the South Morro Hills agritourism area. Balma said if the bridge is not included in the circulation element the developer would not be held accountable to pay toward the roadway improvement costs. She requested the bridge remain on the circulation element until a vision plan for South Morro Hills is developed. She said once a vision plan is in place it will be clear if a bridge is needed. At the May meeting some commissioners also had concerns that removing the Rancho Del Oro Road and state Route 78 interchange from plans would result in negative impacts to traffic on College Avenue and El Camino Real. Balma said changes to the circulation element are
being pushed by residents who live adjacent to Pala Road and Mission Avenue. “Neighbors don’t want it, they hate traffic in their neighborhood,” Balma said. “With more people and construction there is an increase in traffic, none of us like it.” Balma said although no one welcomes traffic, roadway expansion is necessary. The majority of commissioners agreed with staff’s recommendation to remove two Melrose Avenue extensions, and a new interchange at Rancho Del Oro Road and state Route 78. Updates will eliminate the Melrose Drive extension to North River Road and state Route 76, Melrose Drive extension to Spur Avenue and Santa Fe Avenue, Pala Road extension, and add one-way couplets to Mission Avenue. Hunt said commissioners stated numerous reasons to move forward with recommendations. “Commissioners who voted in favor of the proposed changes stated during their deliberations that changes in transportation are coming, including measuring Vehicle Miles Traveled instead of Level of Service, (and) many intersections are already failing even without projected growth,” Hunt said. Commissioners said it’s a quality of life issue, and proposed changes are consistent with Smart Growth. The city circulation element was last updated in 2012. Modifications were analyzed and it was found eight intersections and 13 roadway segments would perform at an E or F level of service during peak hours. City Council gave staff direction to bring forward the current alternative in January 2015. Latest proposed changes were analyzed and it was found 15 intersections and 26 roadway segments would perform at an E or F level. Both alternatives have elements that fall below the D level, which the city considers acceptable.City Council is scheduled to vote on circulation element updates June 21.

Blackout blackmail now in its second summer California focus By Thomas D. Elias
Board right to reject ‘Goodlife’ By Craig Balben
As the 2017 San Diego County Fair kicked off on June 2, prevention advocates were pleased that plans for the county’s largest pot festival scheduled at the fairgrounds on Sept. 23 were at least temporarily put on hold. Marijuana advocates trumpet the passage of Proposition 64 in November (the Adult Use of Marijuana Act) as a public “mandate” in support of all things marijuana. Just like the Prop. 64 campaign, which outspent the opposition 25 to 1, this is misleading. Voters supported what was promoted – keep- ing marijuana users out of jail, banning public smoking, bringing in ta x revenue and including local control so cities and counties can establish their own rules. The fact that it passed does not mean voters support cannabis festivals on public land, marijuana billboards on the highways, pot shops on their corners or gummy bears lad- en with THC. The 22nd District Agricultural Association Board of Directors held a special meeting May 30 to consider all sides of the issue, including impacts on drug prevention, law enforcement, neighbors and youth. In a refreshing departure from many officials, board members spoke seriously about their oath to uphold all federal, state and local laws. Allowing an event where vendors showcase cannabis strains and offer cooking demonstrations with THC-infused oils and butters, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own pot to use in designated smoking areas, would clearly violate federal law. And after analyzing various regulations, including those in Prop. 64, the California Department of Public Health has determined that ingesting or smoking either recreational or medical cannabis in public is prohibited. So organizers were told the existing contract would be canceled, but the board would be willing to consider an alternate plan if it adhered to all laws and focused on “education.” However, if promoters return with a plan that claims to adhere to federal law, I would urge the board to strongly consider the message the Goodlife Festival will
send to impressionable young people. Marijuana is the opposite of a “good life” for developing adolescent brains and at-risk adults. With today’s high-potency THC, marijuana has serious long-term negative impacts on mental health, academic success and future career prospects. More teens use marijuana than tobacco (and nine out of 10 marijuana users are smoking it), and they are more at risk for addiction than adults. We’ve been down this road with tobacco and should learn from our mistakes. Tobacco farmers and cigarette companies were the economic drivers a n d leading sponsors of county fairs across the country. As recently as 1965, more t h a n 40 p e rcent of U.S. adults were current cigarette smokers, and tobacco was promoted for energy, concent rat ion and weight loss. Youth smoking rates peaked 30 years later in 1995 at 36 percent. To this day, tobacco remains the leading cause of preventable death in our country. While marijuana is a different drug, it is a drug nonetheless and remains illegal under federal law. Long-term effects of smoking and consuming marijuana are still being studied. Meanwhile, research on the impacts of marijuana on adolescent brain development and mental health, driving impairment and youth perception about the harms of marijuana are well established. Approving a cannabis festival calling itself “Goodlife” will result in a regional marketing strategy with radio and newspaper ads, billboards, and online promotion – all touting cannabis as the “Goodlife.” It will be impossible to restrict such promotions to a 21 and up audience. The fair board is under no legal or political obligation to permit a cannabis festival, and should keep public health and safety a priority for events held on public land. Craig Balben is a resident of Oceanside and the President of the North Coastal Prevention Coalition
You’d better watch out, California’s second-largest provider of natural gas warned again this spring. Unless the notoriously leaky natural gas storage field at Aliso Canyon in northern Los Angeles is reopened soon, much of the state could experience electricity blackouts this summer. The admonition was almost identical to another Southern California Gas Co. warning issued almost precisely a year ago. If there’s not enough gas in its storage facilities, the company claimed both times, gas-fired power plants might not be able to operate at the hottest times of the summer, when electric use is at its peak. The prediction didn’t pan out last year, not by a long shot. And there’s no more reason to panic this summer than there was in 2016. For even though SoCalGas reserves were only at about 60 percent of their normal levels as this summer’s expected heat waves approached, there were no blackouts last year, when exactly the same situation prevailed. This is all about the big utility’s campaign to reopen Aliso Canyon, in spite of proposed state legislation that could keep it closed unless and until a comprehensive study deems the field can safely reopen and in spite of planned new state rules aimed to prevent more leaks on the scale of Aliso’s. The site leaked more than 100,000 metric tons of methane between October 2015 and February 2016, forcing a months-long evacuation of hundreds of nearby homes and two elementary schools because of the malaise it caused. Local residents want the field permanently decommissioned. They are backed by Los Angeles city officials, who sued to keep it closed until the cause of the leak is known. When SoCalGas issued its alarm last year, it suckered officials like Gov. Jerry Brown and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti into warning millions of Californians to ease off their gas and electric usage during the summer. This, of course, ignored the basic fact that natural gas usage is always far higher in winter than summer, because gas fuels so many space heaters, while
electricity powers most air conditioning. In the end, there was no need for worry last year, and chances are strong it will be the same this year. It should have been obvious last year, as it is now, that the SoCalGas warning is a bunch of hooey, aimed primarily at reopening its Aliso Canyon profit center. In fact, the highest gas use of the last 10 years in the region served by Aliso Canyon came not during any summer, but in the winter of 2008, when natural gas demand in Southern California reached 4.9 billion cubic feet per day. Even that quantity was well below the 5.7 billion cubic feet arriving daily from incoming pipelines and other local storage facilities. When the usual summertime electric use crunches came during heat waves in late July and early August of last year, deliveries from SoCalGas never even reached 4 billion cubic feet per day, far below the company’s capacity without Aliso. There were no blackouts and major media didn’t even bother reporting on ultra-high electric usage on the peak days. Nevertheless, SoCalGas allies like the Orange County Business Council and the California Hispanic Chamber of Commerce repeated the company’s empty springtime warnings in several letters to the editor and op-eds. One even compared the potential for blackouts to San Francisco’s widespread April blackout. Never mind that Pacific Gas & Electric Co. blamed that one on a facility fire, not on any shortage of fuel for power plants. So far, there is one major change from last year: no major officials or agencies are taking up the latest cry from SoCalGas. Essentially, SoCalGas lied about the blackout danger last year, an effort consumer advocates labeled “blackout blackmail.” The same phrase can be applied this year, too, as big utilities continue squandering the public trust they carefully built by supplying energy reliably through the 20th century.

ACLU deems protester restrictions unconstitutional By Ruarri Serpa
VISTA — The American Civil Liberties Union says Vista is infringing on the First Amendment rights of protesters outside Rep. Darrell Issa’s office. Ellen Montanari has organized the weekly protests for months outside Issa’s office on Thibodo Road, drawing as many as 800 people. The ACLU’s concerns arose when Montanari tried to renew her permit through the end of the summer. The city placed new restrictions on the permit — including where and how they could protest — setting the stage for a fight between the city, which
says it was looking out for public safety, and free speech advocates. ACLU Legal Director David Loy said in a statement that the city’s actions were inappropriate and unconstitutional. “The First Amendment means that the government can’t tell the people where and how to protest in a public forum, unless it passes a strict test. The city failed that test.” Loy outlined five concerns in a letter to City Attorney Darold Pieper, including rules against protesting on the sidewalk, limiting amplified sound, holding Montanari respon-
COMMUNITY MEMBER OPENING(S) ON TRI-CITY HEALTHCARE DISTRICT BOARD OF DIRECTORS COMMITTEE The Tri-City Healthcare District Board of Directors currently has two (2) community membership opening on the following working Committee: Finance, Operations & Planning Committee – two (2) open community seats. This Committee meets monthly to review Hospital finances, operational issues and strategic planning issues, including but not limited to budgets, operating performance and proposals for new capital. Applicants should have a background in finance. If members of the public have an interest in serving as a community member on the above listed Committee, please send a resume or biography delineating your experience relevant to this Committee to: Teri Donnellan. Executive Assistant Tri-City Medical Center - Administration 4002 Vista Way Oceanside, CA 92056 Your information will be forwarded to the Chairperson of the Committee and Board Chairperson for review and consideration. After consideration by the full Committee, a recommendation will be forwarded to the full Board of Directors for final approval/ appointment. All appointments are voluntary and do not include compensation. Community members shall serve a term of two years, with an option to renew the appointment for one additional two year term. At the conclusion of the second term, the community member shall not be eligible to serve on the same Board Committee for at least two years. It is preferable that a community member shall be a member of no more than one Board Committee at a time.

Therefore, only applications submitted by persons residing within the boundaries of the Tri-City Healthcare District will be considered.
sible for the behavior of the protestors, holding her responsible for any damage and trying to recover the costs for law enforcement. “I am writing to discuss certain First Amendment issues arising from the City’s response to the protest, in the hope of making litigation unnecessary,” Loy said in his letter to the city. “By organizing a protest on a public sidewalk, Ms. Montanari is engaging in political speech that is guaranteed the highest level of protection.” Spokesmen for the city and the Sheriff’s Department have told the Union-Tribune it was an issue of safety along Thibodo Road. Capt. Chuck Cinnamo specifically cited the large crowds, posing a distraction to drivers and sometimes stepping into the street, combined with low visibility due to a nearby curve on Thibodo road as safety issues. The owner of the building that houses Issa’s office also said protesters were trespassing on the lawn, illegally parking in the lot and had broken some sprinkler heads. As a result, the city required Montanari to move the protests to a dirt patch on the opposite side of the road and off the sidewalk. Citing recent court
opinions, Loy said sidewalks are “uniquely suitable” for protests, and that the city’s ability to regulate that is extremely limited. Montanari released a statement expressing her gratitude for the ACLU weighing in. “We’ve worked cooperatively with the city of Vista and law enforcement, but we will not back down from defending the First Amendment,” she said. “I am very happy that the ACLU has taken this case on behalf of me, and on behalf of constituents in California District 49, who have the right to freedom of speech.” In a statement, Pieper said, “The City of Vista recognizes and values the unalienable right of free speech and the right to assemble and demonstrate. In order to secure the safety of the participants and the public, the City requires a free permit for all gatherings over 50. These permits outline safeguards placed in order to protect the welfare of those who may be affected by pedestrian and/or vehicle traffic, disabled access needs, etc. The permit in question was, the City believed, negotiated cooperatively with the protest organizer. The City will take the suggestions made in the letter received from the ACLU under consideration.”

Vista residents speak about illegal medical marijuana dispensaries By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — While the topic of illegal medical marijuana dispensaries was not a scheduled item of discussion at the May 23 City Council meeting, a couple of residents expressed their sincere concerns about the presence of them in their hometown during the oral communications portion of the meeting. These residents asked City Council for their assistance in the matter. One resident did thank City Council for its immediate response to an increased problem in the Vista community regarding the illegal cannabis businesses within the neighborhoods. He told City Council that while he once wanted medical cannabis available to patients, he now believes that the dispensaries are being operated irresponsibly due to lack of supervision. “The community of Vista is looking for support,” the resident said. “We would like to get rid of illegal dispensaries.” Another Vista resident said that she was at the meeting on behalf of all mothers, fathers and families who are concerned about the pot

ture, just to provide a higher level of service.” But hotel representatives in a recent news release said the ultimate goal with Hubert was to bring technological advantages to the hotel industry that could combat rising wages, a point that drew ire from the union that represents restaurant and hotel workers in San Diego. “With recent minimum wage spikes, currently $11.50 in San Diego, hospitality professionals are beginning to determine ways to combat rising labor costs. This has forced many restaurant and hospitality professionals to get creative to reduce costs to avoid raising costs too high,” according to the news release. “Currently, we are seeing more technology in these establishments with new devices such as computers that will take your fast food order, iPads that request drink refills and close tabs and self-service beer and wine taps. RAR wanted to bring this to San Diego’s hotel industry, and what better way than with a human-like robot who doesn’t call in sick or take a day off.” Brigette Browning, the president of the San Diego County Hotel and Food Service Workers Union, called the news release offensive to workers who could be displaced with the rise in automation. “It’s very offensive that a hotel would be celebrating replacing human capital with robots,” Browning said. “I thought that it was a very
shops that are forming in her community. She wanted City Council to promote measures that would enforce strong family values and help to strengthen kids, not weaken them. During the council member remarks, Councilman John Aguilera wanted to make a comment to those residents who came to speak about the medical marijuana issue in Vista. He assured those individuals that the City Council was working diligently trying to eliminate the illegal medical marijuana dispensaries. “State law is really not in our favor,” Aguilera said. “Our city attorney is working very hard on the ordinances and the little law that he has on his side. It’s just a long process.” Aguilera encouraged residents to attend future meetings and to discuss their opinions on the topic with the City Council. “Thank you for being here,” he said. Vista City Attorney Darold Pieper said that in light of the earlier comments regarding illegal dispensaries that evening, he wanted to convey some information that would be coming out. obvious marketing strategy by the hotel, ‘Hey, we are getting rid of jobs and replacing them with robots, don’t you think we are awesome?’” According to Browning, San Diego’s hospitality industry has already been strained post-9/11, when more than 700 of the union’s 3,000 workers lost jobs as the industry made deep cuts. Many of those jobs haven’t returned, as hotels have eliminated room service, lunch and dinner menus and mini-bars, Browning said. She said that other forms of automation have already had an impact on the industry: some hotels are using apps that allow you to use your phone in lieu of a physical room key. Browning said that she thinks the next area where hotels will target cuts is the front counter, and robots like Hubert could accelerate the push in that direction. “As with many industries you are going to see less and less staffing as a way for these hotel owners to generate profits,” Browning said. “If you eliminate front desk check-in staff, the remaining staff can act more like concierge and do it with less staffing. “I am skeptical about how guests will react to that,” Browning said. “I don’t think the tech is there yet — it’s still a novelty and they are working the bugs out — but I don’t think it is very far away.” Lamming said that Hubert — named in honor of San Marcos’ reputation as the “education hub” of

North County — has not replaced any staff, nor was it ever intended to. But he said that the hotel industry has been slower than others to explore ways to become more efficient, and RAR is trying to shed light on that with the addition of Hubert. “It is part of our duty to try to bring light to the downside that is hitting us pretty quickly with rising labor costs so that we don’t sacrifice service, but we
also have to be profitable to avoid the downsides,” Lamming said. “Hubert in no way changes any of our staffing needs and jobs. It’s just to bring the subject to the table for conversation.” Carl Winston, the director of the School of Hospitality & Tourism Management at San Diego State, agrees with Lamming regarding the hotel industry’s slow pace to embrace automation, which has already changed the way certain
industries do business. “I remember when there were gas station attendants and busboys at McDonalds, and you had to go into the bank to get cash,” Winston said. “But as labor costs go up, people and businesses seek advantages to reduce that.” Winston said that he doesn’t think automation or robots will ever fully replace jobs at hotels. Housekeeping, maintenance and front desk jobs are jobs that might be too sophisticated
for robots. But they could augment and compliment their human counterparts, and in some areas replace them if it helps a hotel to remain in the black. “I think there will be downward pressure on staffing levels because it gets more and more cost-effective to use automation,” Winston said. “If you can save $20,000 annually by buying a $20,000 robot once, for a hotel owner, it’s not rocket science.”

Oversight committee needs five new members Odd Files SAN MARCOS — Palomar College is seeking to fill five vacancies on the Proposition M Bond Independent Citizens’ Oversight Committee (ICOC). These are appointed positions, which require an application and approval by the Palomar College Governing Board. The following positions are available: a member active in a business organization representing the business community located in the district; a member representing the community at-large; a member active in a senior citizens’ organization; a member active in a bona-fide taxpayers association; and a member active in a support organization for Palomar College, such as foundation or advisory council. The ICOC oversees how the college expends Proposition M, the facilities bond measure voters approved in
November 2006. The committee is responsible for ensuring that bond proceeds are expended only for the purposes described in the Proposition M ballot measure. Individuals interested in this appointed position can obtain an application on Palomar’s website at http://www2. palomar.edu/pages/propm/ icoc/ or by calling Shawna Cohen in Employment Services at firstname.lastname@example.org; her phone number is (760) 7441150, ext. 2608. Applications must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on June 30. Candidates must be at least 18 years old and must reside within the Palomar Community College District, which stretches from Camp Pendleton and part of Oceanside in the west, to Borrego Springs in the east, and from the Riverside County line to Poway and Rancho Penasquitos.
State law requires that the ICOC membership include at least one (enrolled) student who is active in a community college support group, such as student government; one member active in a business organization representing the business community; one member active in a senior citizens’ organization; one member active in a taxpayers’ association; one member active in a support organization for Palomar College, such as the Palomar College Foundation and President’s Associates; and two members of the community. A majority of the members must possess expertise in one or more of the following areas: large-scale construction operations, municipal/public finance, expertise with agency/entity budgeting and project management. The committee may not include any
employee or official of the district, or any vendor, contractor or consultant of the district. Under the ICOC bylaws approved by the Governing Board in September 2008, terms of service are generally two years, with a maximum of two terms. ICOC members are not compensated. The college anticipates that the ICOC will meet quarterly.The ICOC bylaws stipulate the group will receive and review the district’s annual independent performance audit and annual independent financial audit; inspect college facilities and grounds for which bond proceeds have been or will be expended; review district efforts to maximize bond proceeds; inform the public and Governing Board about the district’s bond expenditures; present an annual written report to the Board; and provide other input.
By Chuck Shepherd Troubling Airwaves A country-and-western radio station in Benson, Arizona (near Tucson), owned by Paul Lotsof, has periodically run "public service announcements" about one of Lotsof's pet peeves: the harsh sentences usually given to mere "collectors" of child pornography. Many, he believes, are non-dangerous, daydreaming hermits -- but often imprisoned for long stretches. Thus, his PSAs publicize tips for avoiding the police, such as saving child porn only on an external computer drive (and hiding the drive securely). Despite recent community outrage (causing Lotsof to retire the announcements), he remains defiant that, since he personally avoids child porn, he is merely exercising a free-speech right. [Washington Post, 5-11-2017] Can't Possibly Be True The inexplicable ease with which foreign hackers attack U.S. computers and security systems is finally grabbing the attention of officials.

"It has a picture of a chip." Apparently, he added, "It's (there) only to prevent chip envy." [Washington Post, 3-31-2017] — Suzette Welton has been in prison in Alaska for 17 years based almost solely on now-debunked forensic evidence, but the state's lack of a clemency process means she cannot challenge her life sentence unless she proves "complete" innocence. Evidence that the fire that killed her son was "arson" was based not on science but on wide-
ly believed (but wrong) folklore on how intentional fires burn differently than accidental ones. (The bogus arson "trademarks" are similar to those used to convict Texan Cameron Todd Willingham, who suffered an even worse fate than Welton's: Willingham was executed for his "arson" in 2004.) [Alaska Dispatch News, 5-14-2017] — Reverence for the lineage of asparagus continues in epic yearly Anglican church festivities in Worcester, England, where in April celebrants obtained a special blessing for the vegetable by local priests as a costumed asparagus pranced through the street praising the stalks as representing "the generosity of God."

COAST CITIES — Five North County high school seniors are among 23 students countywide awarded scholarships from Cox Charities. The 2017 North County Cox Scholars include Melina Aguinaga, High Tech High North County; Alexis Alvillar, Mission Vista High School; Trevor Anderson, Escondido High School; Ilona Malinovska, El Camino High School; and Huryoung Vongsachang, San Marcos High School. Aguinaga will attend Colorado College to study neuroscience. She is interested in learning how the brain, social institutions and law come together in society. Alvillar knew she wanted to become a doctor in middle school, and has committed herself to taking science and specialized medical classes, volunteering at Scripps Hospital and becoming involved in clubs for students interested in healthcare. She has also volunteered in rural hospitals in Peru through the organization Projects Abroad. Anderson has interned in a hospital and reached out to more than 50 biology professors for the opportunity to work with a post-doctoral researcher on molecular biology projects. He is heading to Duke University to pursue a career in the medical field. After working with nurses and doctors as a Pathmaker intern at
Palomar Medical Center, Malinovska is even more certain that she wants to become an obstetrician and gynecologist. She will be attending the University of California, San Diego and hopes to participate in a medical mission in Costa Rica. Vongsachang enjoyed his dental and orthodontist visits so much that he began to research dental procedures during his spare time and job shadowed his dentist for a summer. He hopes to open his own dental practice and volunteer with programs focused on mental health, civic engagement and music. The Cox Scholars program is open to graduating high school seniors who live in a Cox service area and meet various academic and community service criteria. The individual scholarships range from $2,500 to $7,500. Cox Charities awarded a total of $77,500 to graduating high school seniors in San Diego County for their academic success, community service, leadership and commitment to their education despite facing adversity.

Local winemakers San Marcos to adopt new massage parlor regulations compete at fair By Aaron Burgin
By Joe Naiman
DEL MAR — The San Diego County Fair’s homemade wine contest included Escondido winemaker Donato Santasieri being given the Leon Santoro Award for best of show and Carlsbad’s David Mobley receiving the Lum Eisenman Award for the highest-scoring wine made from grapes grown, produced and bottled in San Diego County. The bottle that earned Santasieri the Leon Santoro Award also won Best of Division in the Red Wine category and first place in the Sangiovese category. Mobley added first place in the Petite Syrah class to his Lum Eisenman Award. In addition to head-to-head place awards for each class, the homemade wine contest also awards gold, silver and bronze medals based on the Davis 20-point scale. Gold medals were given to the bottles that earned Santasieri and Mobley with their special awards. Santoro, who passed away in 2009, was the winemaker at Orfila Vineyards in San Pasqual. Eisenman is a Del Mar grower and winemaking instructor who founded the San Diego Amateur Winemaking Society. Santasieri also took first place for his Rose Medium Dry entry, which was given a gold medal. He did not receive a medal for his Blended Red Spanish Varietals bottle, but that wine was awarded second place in its class. Chiara Johnson of Escondido placed third in the Rose Medium Dry category, but that bottle still scored high enough for a gold medal. David Meyer of Encinitas also won a Best of Division Award. He entered a bottle of Albarino, which won first place in that category along with a gold medal before taking Best of Division honors in the White Wine division. Dennis Hansen of Carlsbad had four first-place wines and also received five gold medals. His first-place
Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Riesling Dry bottles were awarded gold medals. Hansen placed first in the Blended White Miscellaneous Varietals Dry category and was given a silver medal for that entry. He took second place and a gold medal for his Blended Red Bordeaux Varietals bottle. A bottle in the Rose Dry competition did not place but resulted in a gold medal for Hansen. Oceanside winemaker Daniel Todd took home three gold medals. One of those bottles won first place among Malbec entries, and his wine that won second place in the Sauvignon Blanc competition also received a gold medal as did his Petite Syrah, which received second place in that category. Rosanna Lacarra of Vista was given two gold medals. One of those bottles took first place in the Blended Red Italian Varietals category and the other placed second in the Cabernet Franc class. Vista’s Gary Means received first place and a gold medal for his Cabernet Franc entry. Tom Nikzad of Carlsbad took second place in the Blended Red Italian Varietals class and was given a gold medal for that bottle. Blair Nicholas of Encinitas and Bill Grote of Vista did not place in the Blended Red Italian Varietals competition, but their bottles received gold medals. Dina Chatelain of Vista received first place and a gold medal for her Riesling Sweet bottle. Escondido grower Ed Grangetto produced a bottle that was given a gold medal and first place in the Vermentino category. Vista’s Larry Montini was given a gold medal for a bottle that placed second in the Rose Dry class. Daniel Williams of Oceanside won second place in the Merlot competition for a bottle that was given a gold medal. Robert Collings of Oceanside won first place in the Barbera category with a bottle that also received a silver medal.
SAN MARCOS — The city of San Marcos, with little fanfare, has taken the first step to adopt wholesale changes to its regulations of massage parlor establishments. The City Council in late May unanimously adopted the first reading of the new regulations, which, among other things, require all massage therapists working at an establishment to have state licenses, and caps the number of establishments at one for every 2,500 residents. Additionally, brickand-mortar massage es-
tablishments would have to obtain a new license, which costs $380 the first year and $308 to renew annually. Out-call massage establishments would be required to obtain a permit, too, but for $125 and $53 to renew. The council must adopt a second reading of the ordinance before it takes effect 30 days after the second reading. State law doesn’t allow for cities to require additional permits or licenses for massage therapists, but recent changes in state law granted cities and counties more latitude in requiring permits for the businesses.
Arrest made in fatal hit and run in Oceanside By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — Edward Anthony Hernandez of Oceanside was arrested and charged for the fatal hit and run that took the life of Margaret Examus in April. Hernandez, 22, is the owner of the vehicle seen by witnesses during the incident that happened on the 1400 block of Mission Avenue. He was arrested on June 13. The collision occurred at 8 p.m. April 16. Examus was struck in the westbound lanes of Mission Avenue and was unconscious
when police arrived. Witnesses reported the victim was walking southbound across the road when a silver 1998 Honda Civic hit her. It was estimated by observers at the scene that the vehicle was traveling at 70 to 80 miles per hour. A witness followed the vehicle and a complete license plate number was reported. Examus died at the scene. Anyone with additional information on the incident is asked to call accident investigator Bryan Hendrix at (760) 435-4882.
San Marcos officials said that the city needed new regulations to control the proliferation of massage establishments citywide. In 2006, San Marcos only had one massage parlor. Today, according to city records, there are 31 massage parlors, three businesses that offer massage services and one chiropractic office, with 134 licensed massage therapists operating in the city. The city inspected 20 of the businesses in February and discovered a number of businesses had serious code violations and had employees operating without valid state licenses. Under the new regulations, a business would face suspension or revocation of its license if it violates any of the regulations, and a proprietor can’t transfer
a suspended or revoked license to another person at the same location for five years. The other major change under the new regulations are the cap and distance requirements. Under the one-per-2,500person cap, only seven new massage establishments would be allowed in San Marcos with its current population. And those new establishments would be barred from opening within 1,000 feet of an existing massage parlor and only allowed in commercial and certain mixed-use zones. None of the city’s massage businesses or therapists spoke or protested the regulations at the May 23 public hearing, during which the council voted 5-0 with no discussion and only a handful of questions.

Inter-Tribal Powwow held By Promise Yee
OCEANSIDE — The two-day Inter-Tribal Powwow brought dance, song, drums and vendors to Mission San Luis Rey grounds June 10 and June 11. The annual celebration drew about a dozen tribes from California and neighboring states to participate in dance competitions. Both days began with an arena blessing, gourd dance and grand entry. The gourd dance was performed by tribe elders. All dancers participated in the grand entry. Carmen Mojado, an original member of The San Luis Rey Mission Indian Foundation powwow committee, said her favorite moment of the powwow is the grand entry. “All dancers come into the arena for the grand entry,” Mojado said. “To me, it’s a culmination of all our work. It’s happening, we did it.” An intertribal dance
and competitions followed. The intertribal dance included all dancers performing different steps simultaneously. In competitions, dancers wore traditional regalia for the specific dance and performed in male and female age group categories. Competitions included the men’s grass dance, fancy dance and chicken dance, and women’s jingle dance and fancy shawl dance. The name of each dance reflects dance movements and regalia worn. The chicken dance imitates movements of a chicken pecking at food. The jingle dance is done with bells attached to skirts and ankle cuffs. Mojado said she enjoys watching the fancy dance. “They dance really fast with bustles on their back, I love watching those guys,” Mojado said. Music was played by drum circles located in
the center of the arena and around its edges. The event emcee called out which tribe will play for each dance. Next to the arena 30 vendor booths sold a variety of handmade items, food and drinks. The powwow has become an anticipated yearly event. Carrie Lopez, member of The San Luis Rey Mission Indian Foundation powwow committee, said it took a lot of work to get to 20th year. Lopez added this year organizers could take a breath after passing the milestone anniversary. “We reached a pinnacle, it’s a fortunate place to be,” Lopez said. This was also the year tribe elders passed the torch to younger members to organize and run the powwow. Lopez said there were growing pains, but she and other younger tribe members were honored to carry the torch.

COAST CITIES — The final event at the San Diego Hall of Champions was the 20th annual CIF San Diego Section appreciation dinner May 31. The honored members of the high school sports community cherished and supported by Hall of Champions founder Bob Breitbard included Vista High School water polo coach Dave Spence and La Costa Canyon High School girls lacrosse coach Casey Rector. The annual awards include the selection of a male coach and a female
coach as Model Coach of the Year recipients. Spence and Rector were this year’s model coaches. CIF Commissioner Jerry Schniepp told the audience that the model coaches are positive role models in their schools and communities. “We have two prime examples,” he said. Spence has coached both boys water polo and girls water polo at Vista High School for 17 years. “Dave is one of those coaches who makes being an athletic director and athletic administrator an easy job,” said Pat Mora-

marco, Vista High School athletic director. “Dave’s an outstanding role model for any student-athlete,” Moramarco said. “We are very lucky to have Dave on our campus.” Eight high schools in North County including seven public schools have on-campus pools, but Vista High School is not one of them. The Panthers play their home matches at The Wave. The travel for practices and home games hasn’t been detrimental to the Vista water polo teams. “He turns out a quality water polo program year after year,” Moramarco said. John Labeta became the CIF San Diego Section assistant commissioner in 2011 and was previously the La Costa Canyon High School athletic director. After Labeta joined the CIF his daughter, Kari DiGiulio, became the Mavericks’ athletic director. Rector was DiGiulio’s first hire as the La Costa Canyon athletic director. “Her teams have character, pace and determination,” DiGiulio said. “Casey Rector has exceeded expectations with her teams and each of her players have been touched.” Rector played lacrosse at La Costa Canyon when Labeta was the athletic director and was the 2005 CIF San Diego Section player of the year. She then played at the University of Oregon and returned to La Costa Canyon as an assistant coach before being hired to lead the Mavericks’ program. Rector became the head coach for the 2012 season, and the Mavericks won the CIF Division I championship that year. The Open Division was created in 2013, and La Costa Canyon won the first three CIF Open Division championships.

Chargers exit but the memories never move sports talk jay paris Before we say hello to summer, we bid good bye to the Chargers. The reality of January’s relocation decisions have surfaced in June, with moving trucks this week idling outside Chargers Park. It was last call on June 15 for the Chargers to a region they been in since 1961. When returning for next month’s training camp, they’ll do so in Costa Mesa. The Chargers head north, but not before having an impact on North County over nearly six decades. Many players, coaches and executives called our slice of paradise home over the years and some never left. They were often champs in answering the call for numerous local charities in lending their support. Philip Rivers certainly falls in that category. The quarterback living near Rancho Santa Fe has traipsed through our cities helping out where he can. So he couldn’t help but reflect with the Chargers’ minicamp workouts ending. Die-hard Chargers fans aren’t the only ones remiss about the move. “As it comes to an end, it’s a time to be forever thankful for our time here and getting to stay in one place for as long as I have personally,’’ Rivers said. “But in a way, it’s a tough, tough, tough day as well.’’ Rivers needed an old LaDainian Tomlinson stiff-arm to push away emotions. He didn’t really want to replay the drama of what the past two years produced. “I’m not trying to overstate this whole thing again,’’ Rivers said. “I think we have all moved on in the sense that we are full-steam ahead. But there is no denying the fact that when you are at the last week somewhere that has been special to you, it is

meaningful.’’ Antonio Gates has been here one year longer than Rivers. They’ve been the team’s heart and soul for so long that they’re the reason many disappointed Chargers fans will continue their support. “Shoot you think to going back to where we both started,’’ Rivers said. “We started in different ways. I had to sit my first two years. And I’m sure he has some rough memories out here when he was covering kicks and doing all that stuff as an undrafted free agent. And to see where he has come.” Gates is headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. So when Hunter Henry asked to take an extra practice snap on June 12, Gates laughed. “You’re only 100,000 reps behind me,” he said. With all those reps coming at Chargers Park. “To me it’s different because I’ve been here my career,” Gates said. “It’s a bittersweet moment.’’ Rivers fell for our area as much as many did for him. The self-professed country boy from Alabama might have been hard-pressed to find San Diego on the map. “I had been west of the Mississippi (River) one time, I think, before coming out here 13 years ago,” Rivers said. So he settled in, had eight children and now is scratching his head about what to do. Does he move closer to the Orange County training facility and the StubHub Center in Carson for game days? Or become a long-distance commuter? “I’m still figuring that out,” he said. “I will figure it out at some point.’’ The Chargers’ compass is pointed north. But Rivers, even if he settles in Orange County, won’t shortchange North San Diego County. “All but one of my children were born here,’’ he said. “And over time you just begin to start calling it home.” Contact Jay Paris at email@example.com.

Black, a Rancho Santa Fe resident. “It’s not like going from infielder to outfielder or second to third base or any other move around the diamond. “It’s going to a position that is so important and integral to a team’s success. And to throw it all on a young guy who has no catching experience is rare. “Usually there is a catcher’s instinct, a mentality, that has developed from Little League, amateur ball, high school, college and minors. There is so much that goes into that position, more so than any other position on the field.” Wolters landed in Colorado after being cut by the Indians before last season. After knee injuries derailed him in 201415, making the Rockies’ opening day ’16 roster was a stretch. He made it then and hasn’t returned to the minors since. “I need to get a lot better still,” said Wolters, who was hitting .302 through Tuesday. “But I’m learning every day and there’s not one day that I don’t want to get better.” Wolters’ arrow points up in more ways than one. His capacity to improve is enhanced because of his inexperience. “He’s in a good spot and he’s going to get better,” Black said. “His ceiling is much higher because he is going to refine all the things he’s working on. It’s baptism under fire because he is learning the position at the big league level with the expecta-

tions of performance. But he’s earning his stripes.” And it’s as Colorado’s catcher, the equivalent of a mile high away from shortstop. “It’s still new, but I feel comfortable,” Wolters said. “I’m still learning but I have a lot of good people around me.” Wolters’ buddies were out for the Rockies’ recent series in San Diego and they likely joined him at his go-to spot, Vista’s Nucci’s Italian Cafe. His memories playing at RBV under Leo Fletes are among his favorite. “North County and Vista felt like a small little area,” Wolters said. “High school baseball was a lot of fun because everyone knew each other — we even knew each other’s dogs’ names. It was just a time where we went out to the ballfield and had fun.” Wolters’ laughs now come in the Majors, even if often hidden behind a mask.

The accredited status is the highest of three designations the National Main Street Center awards.
“It is a great honor to recognize this year’s 828 nationally Accredited Main Street America programs for their outstanding work to transform downtown and neighborhood commercial districts,” said Patrice Frey, President & CEO of the National Main Street Center. “Main Streets are the heart of our communities, and the work they do to create quality public spaces, catalyze local entrepreneurship, and support downtown housing is more important than ever. Across the county, Main Street America programs truly strengthen the economic, social, and cultural fabric of their entire communities.” The California MainStreet Alliance annually
evaluates the local main street programs and works in partnership with the National Main Street Center to identify the ones that meet 10 performance standards. Evaluation criteria determine the communities that are building comprehensive and sustainable revitalization efforts and include standards such as fostering strong public-private partnerships, securing an operating budget, tracking programmatic progress and actively preserving historic buildings. Main Street America is a program of the nonprofit National Main Street Center, a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

about to arrest Amy Rebello-McCarthy, 39, for DUI after she left the road and crashed through several mailboxes (with the crash causing all of her tires to deflate), she, laughing, told officers there was one other thing: She had a bearded dragon in her bra (where it was riding while she drove). The lizard was turned ov— Felicia Nevins complained to reporters in May that the Pasco County (Florida) Sheriff's Office had improperly drawn attention to her on a matter of a purely personal nature -- that she had called for help, concerned that the sperm she was storing for in-vitro fertilization (kept
T he C oast News - I nland E dition under liquid nitrogen in a thermos) might explode. Deputies had placed the details (but not her name) on the office's Facebook page, but the Tampa Bay Times deduced her name from public sources. [Tampa Bay Times, 5-20-2017] Fine Points of the Law In a legislative battle waged since a 1979 state court decision, some North Carolinians tried once again this year to change a state law that explicitly states that once a person (almost always, of course, a "female") has "consented" to an act of sexual intercourse, that consent cannot be withdrawn -- even if the encounter turns violent. (The violence might be prosecuted as an "assault," but never
the more serious crime of "rape.") Said state Sen. Jeff Jackson, whose bill to change the law failed in April to get a legislative hearing, "We're the only state in the country where 'no' doesn't mean 'no.'" [WRAL-TV (Raleigh-Durham), 5-2-2017] Bright Ideas — Skills: (1) In May, the British tribunal dealing with student cheating rejected the appeal of a law student who was caught taking an in-class exam with her textbook open (permitted) but containing handwritten notes in the margins -- not permitted, but written in invisible ink legible via the UV light on her pen. (2) On testing day in March for Romania's 14- and
15-year-olds, administrators of the country's popular DEX online dictionary, acting on suspicion, changed the definitions of two words likely to be improperly looked up by cheaters during the exam. "(H)undreds" of school searches for the words took place that morning, but administrators were still mulling an appropriate punishment for the cheaters (who were, of course, easily identified by their misapplication of the suspect words).
