Protestors call for freedom of speech at Vista City Hall

County releases draft EIR for project

By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — A crowd of peaceful demonstrators at the Vista Civic Center grew in numbers netting the attention of after-work commuters before a June 13 City Council meeting. A concerned group of citizens, who have protested at Congressman Darrell Issa’s office for one hour every Tuesday morning since President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January, voiced concerns that their “freedom of speech” may be impacted due to a permit issued by the city of Vista. While worries mounted over the threat of not being granted a new permit at the end of June, protestors wanted current restrictions lifted on a new permit if received. The current limitations included the use of amplified voice devices such as megaphones, not impeding sidewalk traffic and being responsible for law enforcement costs if mobilized. Longtime resident Nanci Oechsle was one of the demonstrators on June 13. “This particular rally is about rallies that have been going on in front of Darrell Issa’s office every week,” Oechsle said. “The person who originally started it has been getting a permit which she doesn’t have to do.” According to the letter issued on June 1 by the ACLU to the city of Vista, the organizer of the weekly protest is Ellen Montanari

SAN MARCOS — Developers of a controversial proposed 2,135-home subdivision of San Marcos are hailing the project as “San Diego County’s first carbon neutral community” as public review begins on the project’s draft environmental report. The draft environmental impact report for Newland Sierra was released June 15. The review period ends Aug. 14. The County Board of Supervisors seven years ago rejected a predecessor project called Merriam Mountains, which would have created 2,530 homes on 2,300 acres in the same area, north of Deer Springs Road and west of Interstate 15. The new project reduces the footprint to 1,985 acres. According to the document, the project would cause significant and unavoidable impacts to the area’s aesthetics, air quality, mineral resources, noise, population and housing, and transportation and traffic. “Feasible mitigation would not reduce such impacts to less-than-significant levels,” the report states. Newland Communities, the developer, issued a statement last week coinciding with the release of the draft environmental impact report, touting the developer’s commitment to environmental stewardship. The statement highlights several features of the project that help make it the county’s first net-zero emissions community, including putting solar panels atop every home, a charging station for electrical vehicles in every garage, a community-sponTURN TO EIR ON 3

and the letter questions the city’s permit conditions. “The last time that Ellen applied for a permit, the city keeps putting all these other constraints on it and kind of threatening us that we are going to be personally liable for the sheriff if they come out here,” Oechsle said. For the last few weeks, the presence of law enforcement has been visible at the Issa headquarters. Oechsle wants to know why they are there since she and her fellow demonstrators have been peaceful. “We’re not doing anything,” she said. “They (law enforcement) have moved us across the street where it’s hot as it can be, even on a cool day. The ACLU came to observe what was going on when the permits started getting increasingly more difficult to get. They (the city) are trying to squelch our freedom of speech.” During the City Council meeting, Vista City Attorney Darold Pieper addressed the protestor-free speech situation noting that he knew there were many demonstrators seated in the council chambers. “Apparently, for some reason, there is a rumor that the city will not reissue a permit,” he said. Pieper dispelled the myth by stating that this was not the case. “A permit will be reisTURN TO PROTESTORS ON 7

City Council responds to ‘Innovate 78’ economic development updates By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Along the 78 Corridor, the five cities of Vista, Escondido, Carlsbad, Oceanside and San Marcos continue their partnership with the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation (EDC) with the goal to collaborate and bolster the economy of each city. During a Vista City Council meeting

in June, Matt Stanford of the San Diego Regional EDC mentioned that he wanted to check in every six months to provide the latest updates. Innovate 78 launched its brand in April 2015. Since that time, Stanford said there had been good exposure for the 78 corridor by way of local media, newsletters and other types of communications.

“As we move forward, we’re really at a good point, one where we now look to leverage our branding and provide more direct support,” he said. Stanford went on to mention that Globarket Recycling Attraction had plans to relocate from Mexico to Vista with a $3 million initial investment and 30 full-time

employees. Following the presentation, Councilman John Aguilera thanked Stanford for the information but also revisited a question from a recent North County meeting. It had to do with the possible downside of potential employers viewing the high cost of housing and affordability in North County.

Stanford explained that the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation was taking a firm look at the inclusive economic development and how they were able to make sure that their work touched and supported all populations. “One of the biggest challenges for people in certain companies is the cost of living

and affordability here in San Diego,” he said. “We are actually looking at affordable cost of living as a competitive, mutual competitiveness issue.” Another item was assessing how this topic affects the economy laterally. “That is a factor that we hope to have some more good TURN TO INNOVATE ON 10

Let’s legalize safe & sane fireworks in North County


s we approach Independence Day, North County residents should consider restoring an old American tradition — permitting the sale and use of safe and sane fireworks for fun and family entertainment. “Safe and sane” refers to fireworks that do not explode or fly; it does not include firecrackers, bottle rockets, roman candles or any explosive, airborne projectiles. Think sparklers, smoke balls, snakes and snaps. They’ve been permitted under state law since the 1950s, and it is left to individual municipalities to determine how they’re

Northbound vince vasquez regulated. Today, nearly 300 cities and unincorporated communities in California permit the sale and discharge of safe and sane fireworks during the 4th of July season, including 10 cities in Orange County. One of the most recent O.C. cities to approve fireworks, Anaheim, did so by a public vote in 2014, with 2015 as the pilot year for

the program. The ballot measure approved by voters gave the City Council the power to regulate fireworks — and the framework they subsequently developed was stringent. They designated limited times and days for fireworks sales and discharge, and stiffened penalties and fines for the possession and use of illegal fireworks and violations of the use of safe and sane fireworks. Fireworks were prohibited from parks, parking lots, residential streets and within the fire-prone Anaheim Hills community. Sales were coordinated through one central retail location and vendor.

One of the main arguments in favor of legalizing safe and sane fireworks in Anaheim was that community nonprofits and charitable organizations could receive a portion of the sale proceeds. In all, $85,200 in proceeds went to support community nonprofits and programs last year, with 53 community groups receiving proceeds. Other cities have generated far more revenue through fireworks sales; for example, Huntington Beach raised more than $700,000 for community nonprofit groups over a two-year pilot program earlier this decade. Public safety-wise, Anaheim’s pilot program

was a success; the 2015 Fireworks After Action Report noted that no fireworks-related fires or injuries were reported in Anaheim on 4th of July that year. The city ordinance was updated for 2017 to allow 16 different fireworks stands in the city, all operated by nonprofit organizations. Allowing North County residents to purchase and use safe and sane fireworks, with restrictions, is both reasonable and manageable. Community groups could benefit from sale proceeds, and elected officials could make regulatory adjustments based on a one- or two-year pilot program.

If a repeal of the ban on safe and sane fireworks reached the ballot, I think most North County voters would vote yes. Fireworks ballot measures have won strong majorities across the state, reversing bans that have been on the books for decades. In all, more than 1.5 million Orange County residents have the freedom to purchase and discharge safe and sane fireworks this 4th of July. Why not North County? Vince Vasquez is a data analyst based in Torrey Pines. He is a Carlsbad resident.

Braille Institute visits county fair By Joe Naiman

DEL MAR — During each day of the San Diego County Fair, tens of thousands of visitors see animals, food, music acts and other exhibits. They also hear, smell, taste and feel some fair activities, and on June 23 the Braille Institute San Diego took 14 students on a field trip to the county fair. “The students had a really great time and it was a beautiful day for it,” said Darlene Miller, Braille Institute educational program manager. Ten guides joined the students who took a bus from the Braille Institute in La Jolla and spent from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fair. Only two of the students who attended the fair are totally blind. “Some of the students have some vision,” Miller said. “They are able to maybe see colors or shapes.” Others can see with magnifiers or other special devices. That allowed the students



sored shuttle with service throughout the community and the Escondido Transit Center and an electric bike-sharing program across the community. The project also sets aside nearly 72 percent of the acreage for open space. According to the environmental report’s summary page, the project is the first large-scale planned community in San Diego County to achieve a 100 percent reduction in the project’s construction and operational greenhouse gas emissions. “Environmental stewardship is one of our company’s highest priorities,” said Rita Brandin, senior vice president and development director at Newland. “Now we’re taking this commitment to new heights by creating a community that will have a net-zero emissions footprint. We believe that Sierra will become the new green standard for sustainable communities in San Diego

to enjoy the arts and crafts even with their visual impairment. In some cases, vendors would allow the Braille Institute students to touch the fabrics. “Many of our students are elderly individuals who have age-related eye conditions,” Miller said. The students also experienced the fair food and the animals, and they were able to touch some of the animals as well as to hear and smell them. “It was definitely a sensory experience for them,” Miller said. In addition to enjoying elements of the county fair, the trip allowed the students to learn to use their other senses and be in the open in the presence of crowds. “They’re highlighting their different senses as well as their orientation and mobility,” Miller said. “It’s a great opportunity for them to practice being out in public and utilizing those skills.” County.” A substantial group of residents in the communities surrounding the project have fought to stop the project over the years, citing the strain it would put on area resources, including water supply, fire suppression services, traffic, noise and air quality. Tom Kumura lives in the Twin Oaks Community Sponsor Group and serves on the group’s board. Speaking as a resident and not in his official capacity, Kumura said the developer’s highlighting of the project’s environmental bona fides doesn’t take away residents’ concerns about the project. “The environmental spin? That’s the first time they’ve used that,” Kumura said. “But the same issues are there in terms of traffic, water, noise and fire danger. They really haven’t addressed those.” To review the full draft environmental impact report, visit pds / ceqa / SP-15 - 0 01 / NS DEIR.html

Poll shows San Diegans value water for life By Mark Muir

As we enter the peak water-use months of summer and early fall, it’s worth taking a moment to assess the value of this resource that is often taken for granted. After all, water makes everything possible in this semi-arid region, from baseball fields and microbrews to biotech and backyard gardens. We recently asked 1,000 county residents what they thought about the value of water as part of the San Diego County Water Authority’s long-running series of public opinion polls. On an unaided basis, two-thirds of respondents (67 percent) said they considered water a good or excellent value. That’s pretty impressive – but it gets better. A follow-up question asked respondents to estimate how much, on average, municipal tap water costs per gallon in the San Diego region. A majority (53 percent) is unsure; 34 percent believe it costs more than 26 cents per gallon. After being told that the true retail cost of municipal tap water in the San Diego region is about a penny per gallon, the number of respondents who perceive it be an excellent or good value increased to 76 percent. Indeed, after all these years helping to safeguard the region’s water supplies, I still find it amazing that we can deliver safe and reliable water supplies at such a modest cost even though we live at the literal end of the pipeline in a region with few natural water resources. That’s a testament to foresight and perseverance of past

and current water agency leaders and employees who have developed world-class water facilities for our region. Our latest public opinion poll shows that San Diegans strongly support what the Water Authority and its 24 member agencies have done. For instance, there continues to be overwhelming community approval of the Water Authority’s regional water supply diversification strategy, which includes securing independent supplies from the Colorado River, helping to develop the nation’s largest seawater desalination plant, and supporting efforts by our member agencies to develop potable reuse. Nearly eight in 10 respondents (79 percent) support that strategy. It’s also telling that the county’s water supply is widely seen as reliable, with 83 percent of respondents characterizing it as somewhat or very reliable. Additionally, 80 percent of respondents have a positive outlook on San

Diego County’s water supply, believing it is improving (41 percent) or holding steady (39 percent). And I’m pleased to report significant community support for using water efficiently, with 81 percent of respondents strongly or moderately agreeing that doing so is their civic duty. More than nine in 10 respondents (92 percent) predict they will use less (33 percent) or about the same (59 percent) volume of water in 2017 as they did in 2016, even though drought conditions are over for the time being. That tells me we are on the right track in San Diego County – investing in long-term water supply reliability while at the same time making the most of every drop.

Single-payer health insurance that would cover every Californian has stalled, at least for now. Because Democratic Speaker Anthony Rendon shelved state Assembly consideration of the Senate-passed insurance outline at least until next year, a popular vote on the well-publicized, often criticized single-payer health insurance plan is probably at least three years away, and probably more. Chances are the idea won’t reach voters before June 2020, if then. The many Californians who wanted this quickly as a potential defense against whatever changes President Trump and the Republican-dominated Congress might bring to ex-President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will just have to wait. It’s the third time in the last 12 years this idea has been stymied in California despite getting considerable legislative support. Twice former Democratic state Sen. Sheila Kuehl, now a Los Angeles county supervisor, got a single-payer plan through the Legislature in this century’s first decade, only to see it vetoed by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Her idea — like this year’s plan — was to use existing health insurance premiums as the main funding source. Coverage of the previously uninsured would be paid with the approximately 15 percent of premiums now going to insurance executives and corporate profits. As before, this year saw a lot of lip service to single payer, sponsored now by

Democratic state Sen. Ricardo Lara of Bell Gardens, also a candidate for state insurance commissioner. Single payer is sometimes called “Medicare for all” because, like federal Medicare insurance covering all those over 65 who want it, the latest plan would have a central clearing house for claims. Payroll taxes would help fund it, also like Medicare. As was Schwarzenegger, current Gov. Jerry Brown has been skeptical, mostly because of costs. But if this proposal gets no action until after next year’s election, now very likely, Brown’s views will no longer matter much. Current gubernatorial possibilities like Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa or state Treasurer John Chiang might be more favorable, if elected. Meanwhile, cost estimates vary from about $340 billion to $400 billion yearly, while California and its citizens now spend about $395 billion on medical care. Lara insists his plan could cut many billions from that figure, even though individuals would see a new payroll tax and businesses would pay a new levy. Taxpayers, he said, would save money via a halt to all premiums, deductibles, co-pays, doctor and hospital bills to the uninsured — including undocumented immigrants — and an end to employer payments for health plans. In the end, had the Assembly and then Brown approved the Senate-passed outline this year, voters would likely have decided the issue as early next June. This won’t happen now, in large part because all details of what Lara wanted were never certain, giving

Rendon and others cold feet. But single-payer has the possibility of ending up a lot like the system Canada now has, one that some Canadians swear by and others swear at. That country experiences vast differences by location in the speed and competence of medical care. Californians have previously voted just once on single payer, defeating the idea in 1994. But times are different now. Millions here gained insurance under Obamacare. Who knows how they might vote if Congress and Trump take away much of their coverage? As with the 1994 California ballot proposal, Lara’s measure could have eliminated companies like Blue Cross, Blue Shield and HealthNet. So far, surveys say the vast majority in this state wants health care for all. But a similar majority also wants no new taxes. The problem is that the twain probably cannot meet. What’s more, opponents already argue the quality of health care would decline under single payer, even though it has not under Medicare. Reality, though, might not matter if enough advertising money were spent to push the idea of lower medical quality. If it ever reaches them, this just might be the most idealistic plan ever put before California voters. It would also be one of the easiest for opponents to attack. And there would be plenty of well-funded opponents, starting with insurance companies desperate to preserve one of their largest markets. The bottom line: If you lose all or part of your health coverage because of Republican-led changes, California won’t soon bail you out.

The longtime resident is leading us on a three-hour walk up, down and around her mountainous hometown of 8,000. We are a mere 32 miles southeast of downtown Salt Lake City but a world away. While most people know about the history and contributions of the Mormons in the Beehive State (so-named because “the beehive represents hard work and industry”), fewer know about the miners. Now a world-famous ski resort — Park City hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics — the surrounding pristine scenery once was obscured by black smoke and debris belching from numerous mining operations that worked round-theclock to extract silver, lead, zinc and a bit of gold. “Everything was coated,” Hays tells us as we examine the entry to one of the old mines, “and miners often

died of black lung disease within a few months.” Park City’s mining history begins in the 1860s when Colonel Patrick Connor was sent to Utah to guard the U.S. Mail and assure that Mormons did not side with the Confederacy. He sent his soldiers in search of precious metals, hoping a discovery would bring prospectors in to “dilute” the Mormon population. Silver was discovered in 1868, and the first of many mines opened in 1872. Silver made multi-millionaires of those who took the chance and invested. The extraction of precious metals continued until 1949 when nearly all mines closed because of economics and other factors. Fast for-

ward to the early ‘60s when Park City used a federal loan to install a gondola, a chairlift and two J-bars. Today the mines are only points of interest on hiking and biking trails, and it’s hard to imagine a greater transformation than that of Park City and nearby ski resort Deer Valley. It’s mid-June, and we are seated in the Silver Star Café at the base of the Silver Star chairlift, enjoying the panoramic view of the mountains and the Park City Golf Club. Live music drifts in from the patio and owner Lisa Ward says with a bit of exasperation that she’s heard that it could snow this weekend. As much as residents love winter and all-things-ski-

ing, they are clearly ready for spring, which at the moment, seems to have a foothold. During our hike the next day, we see the fresh, verdant growth on trees, abundant wildflowers and the teaming waters, all signals that it’s time to hike, bike, fish, golf, horseback ride, zipline, stroll the outdoor art shows, dine al fresco and bar-hop. Regarding that last thing … our post-hike lunchtime finds us at High West Distillery enjoying mixed drinks made with their own brand of whiskey with colorful names like Yippee-Ki-Yay, Valley Tan and A Midwinter Night’s Dream. The High West Lemonade and smoked salmon is a top-notch combo. (High West gladly accommodates those

who need gluten-free choices.) Another award-winning local spirits concern is Alpine Distilling, whose owner Rob Sergent traded corporate life for mountain living. He managed to find the perfect blend of ingredients to create the award-winning Preserve Liqueur, a beautifully smooth concoction that hints of black tea, blood orange, ginger, raspberry and lemon. Sipping it is pure pleasure. A bit later, I’m sitting before a blank canvas at The Paint Mixer, which offers an indoor creative experience for amateur artists and those who’ve never even considered picking up a paintbrush. Art instructor Libby Peterkort assures me that my work in

acrylics will be a masterpiece. For those who need a little more courage, there is wine. Later, we prop my creation against the post that abuts our table at Riverhorse on Main, an award-winning restaurant done in a smart, soft-industrial motif, which includes huge (and real) paintings and sketches of galloping horses. Our excellent cuisine is delivered by tolerant servers who make polite comments about my painting. They can’t possibly mean it, but for a couple of hours, it’s fun to be an artist in residence.

Former Camp Pendleton kid takes fair’s demolition derby By Joe Naiman

DEL MAR — Matt McDonald, who in his Camp Pendleton military dependent days attended San Onofre Elementary School, returned to San Diego County in part to visit his father and in part to participate in the demolition derby June 24 at the San Diego County Fair. McDonald added a win in the demolition derby to his San Diego area activities. “It was a fun time out there,” McDonald said. “I was lucky to pull it off. There’s a lot of talent.” McDonald won when second-place finisher Antonio DeLara III no longer had a movable car. Antonio DeLara was given third place. Antonio DeLara III and Antonio DeLara both live in Coachella, and DeLara Towing is in Indio. McDonald drove a 1968 Dodge Polara he obtained from DeLara Towing. “Drove good for what the track conditions were,” McDonald said. Escondido driver John Northcutt settled for fourth place. Northcutt was able to continue to move his car despite a flat left front tire and smoke from underneath his hood, but he also lost his left rear axle. The drivers had two heats in the early after-

noon. The first heat had four cars and the second heat had five drivers including McDonald and Northcutt. “Heat races were pretty average, not too bad on the cars,” McDonald said. Four drivers from each heat advanced to the late afternoon final, so after the first car was eliminated the rest of the heat was more for testing than for eliminating other drivers. “It made for an easier heat,” McDonald said. The break between the early afternoon heats and the late afternoon final allowed the drivers and their crews to make necessary repairs or other adjustments to the cars. One of the cars that had qualified for the feature was not operable, so seven drivers began the final. The cars — especially the final four — demonstrated their resilience after numerous hits. That allowed the spectators additional time to enjoy the demolition derby while requiring the remaining drivers to continue their attempts to take out the other cars. “They all feel long when you’re in the car, but I don’t think it was too terribly long,” McDonald said of the derby. Track announcer Rat Sult issued one final count-

down to determine whether any cars could move before the checkered flag was thrown and McDonald was declared the winner. “Just got lucky my car didn’t get hit,” McDonald said. “Didn’t lose tires, kept the steering somewhat good, didn’t run out of fuel.” McDonald, who is now 23, has competed in demolition derbies since he was 16. He had competed in previous demolition derbies at the San Diego County Fair but had not won an event at the Del Mar Arena until this year. “Finally got the monkey off my back,” he said. McDonald’s previous demolition derby victory was in a February competition in Indio. Stan McDonald spent 22 years in the Marine Corps before retiring in 2009. He now lives in Hemet.

‘Million Letter Campaign’ coming to San Diego By Aaron Burgin

SAN DIEGO — The “Million Letter Campaign” — an effort to secure and protect at least a million pieces of war-related correspondence from every U.S. conflict in U.S. History — is coming to San Diego on July 5. Campaign founder and author Andrew Carroll will be in town to speak about the importance of preserving

war correspondence and collecting it for the Center for American Water Letters at Chapman University. While the event will be held at the Joe Rindone Regional Technology Center in San Diego, the San Diego County Office of Education, which is hosting the event, said it will resonate with North County, which has a significant military and vet-

eran presence due to its proximity to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. Carroll founded the Center for American War Letters, where donated letters are preserved and remain on permanent exhibit at Chapman University. He is also an author and playwright with a lifelong passion for preserving the firsthand accounts of war veterans. The event is scheduled to run from 1 to 2:30 p.m. July 5 at 6401 Linda Vista Road. Carroll will share some of the letters he has collected and receive donations of war-related correspondence. Members of the public are invited to bring letters or emails from any American war to donate to the Center for American War Letters for preservation.

Council member urges new soccer franchise to locate in Oceanside OCEANSIDE — City Councilmember Jerry Kern is encouraging backers of the recently announced San Diego professional soccer club to locate the franchise in Oceanside. On Monday the North American Soccer League (NASL) announced that the San Diego area was chosen as the league’s newest expansion market, and is currently scouting locations in the North County to build a privately fund-

ed soccer complex that includes a stadium. “Oceanside has become the center of youth soccer in San Diego County as the result of the 21 soccer fields developed at El Corazon Park,” Kern said. “El Corazon is a logical home for professional soccer and I invite backers of the new franchise to consider this, their North County site.” El Corazon Park is home to the SoCal Sports Complex that features

Encinitas looks for CCA partner cities By Aaron Burgin

risdiction such as a county or a city forms an agency that buys power on the open market, choosing the source of the power based on the community’s choice. The energy would still be delivered on SDG&E infrastructure, but the agency would control where it receives the energy. Encinitas over the past year has met with officials from the neighboring cities of Del Mar, Carlsbad, Oceanside and Solana Beach to gauge the interest of forming a regional CCA.


Franklin pointed out how the demonstrators conducted themselves primarily peacefully and within their rights, which he wholeheartedly supported. However, Franklin said he was concerned about safety issues. “The reality is, there are some very real safety concerns that the city has a compelling interest in protecting people, not only motorists but individuals who are standing in the roadway,” he said. “I could go on and on about this issue, but it is, in my opinion, extremely important to make the point that there are other rights that are to be considered.” While Franklin supported the protestors and the protection for everybody, he said that he didn’t want the City Council to be misled or confused about how there were real public interests to protect the rights and those of public safety. Councilman Joe Green thanked the demonstrators for being at the City Council meeting. “It’s fantastic that you guys are here telling us about things like this,” he said, noting that he was going to be talking with city staff about this issue. “We obviously do not want to violate any First Amendment rights, so I want to make sure that we’re not just taking city money and fighting things that we shouldn’t be fighting and making sure that you guys get to do what you want without disturbing the peace.”

ENCINITAS — Encinitas is looking for additional North County cities to join in their quest for energy independence from San Diego Gas & Electric. This week, the City Council is set to vote whether to draft a request for proposals for a joint technical study that would assess the feasibility of a community choice aggregate (CCA) in Encinitas and partnering cities. CCA, also called community choice energy, is the process in which a ju-


sued,” said Pieper, noting the letter received by ACLU attorney David Loy. “So, I just wanted to make that clear moving forward.” Many audience members applauded. One by one, a group of the weekly protestors spoke during the oral communications portion of the City Council meeting. Sue Alderson wanted to know if the new permit would be without First Amendment violations. “Our protest outside of Darrell Issa’s office has prompted the city to place unconstitutional limits on protestors,” she said. The first she noted was moving the demonstrators across the street, and the other, their use of a public-address system. “If these sanctions are indeed sanctioned by the City Council, then this is a violation of each member’s Constitutional rights and it’s actually abhorrent. No one in the Vista community should stand by and watch our freedom of speech and right to assembly be restricted by elected city council,” she said. Deputy Mayor John Franklin, who works near the Issa Headquarters, said he was very familiar with the Tuesday morning demonstrations and had witnessed about 90 percent of them. Franklin said he thought that the city attorney had done a good job balancing the competing rights.

21 full-size fields on 52.5 acres and is host to youth soccer tournaments year round, including the San Diego Surf Cup. “Having a professional soccer team based in Oceanside would not only enhance the existing youth soccer culture, but would help stimulate economic activity along the 78 corridor,” Kern said. NASL is a United States Soccer Federation sanctioned Division II league that currently fea-

tures eight teams. Last month a new club was announced in Orange County, and San Diego will become the 10th club. The yet-to-be named new club will make its league debut in the spring of 2018 and will play its games at the University of San Diego until a home stadium is built.

Senior insomnia discussed By Christina Macone-Greene

RANCHO SANTA FE — Many individuals suffer from the inability to sleep, which can potentially lead to low motivation and changes in mood. Gary Levinson, MD, of Sharp Rees-Stealy Del Mar and Genesee is an internist specializing in sleep disorders. He visited the RSF Senior Center for an informative talk in June. The executive director of the senior center, Terrie Litwin, introduced and thanked Levinson for taking part in the day’s event. According to Levinson, insomnia is defined as either having difficulty falling asleep or remaining asleep throughout the night. He went on to say that those with insomnia do function poorly throughout the day, which may include symptoms such as low energy, fatigue, decreased performance at school or work and mood disturbances. A variety of factors may cause insomnia. Poor sleep and sleep hygiene were the first mentioned. “Sleep hygiene just means clean sleep,” Levinson said. “It means good practices of behavior.” Regular exercise helps promote good sleep hygiene. “We find that people who do nothing during the day often are more restless and active at night because they are not tiring themselves out,” he said. Another tip was setting cooler air temperatures for sleep. Levinson pointed out that if a room is too hot, one can’t fall asleep. A trick Levinson shared was to take a warm bath or shower in the evening. “This raises your body temperature, and when you get out of the bath or shower, your body’s temperature is dropping,” he said. “This temperature drop will trigger the brain to sleep.” Cooler sheets were better for sleep than a warm bed, which he said could keep someone up at night. As far as lighting is concerned, Levinson noted that during the day it is import-

ant to maximize natural light, which helps trigger the brain to know it is daytime. “At night you want to avoid excessive, artificial light and particularly things like computers and TV screens,” he said. Levinson went as far as to recommend not watching television in bed — even if the room is dark. The other causes of insomnia addressed were mental stress as well as physical stress. As we grow older, we might have more medical issues to contend with such as arthritis, acid reflux, breathing and heart disease, Levinson said. These attribute to physical stress and cause someone to wake up, he added. Primary sleep disorders like restless leg syndrome were another cause mentioned. Certain medications, caffeine and alcohol also contribute to insomnia, Levinson said.

Since caffeine is a stimulant, Levinson recommended avoiding it after 3 p.m. and refraining from alcohol use before bedtime. Alcohol can help sedate people, but there was a caveat to consider, he said. “The problem is it (alcohol) comes out of your brain within three hours,” he said. “If you have a few glasses of wine after dinner, you’ll be tired, and you’re going to sleep. And ‘boom,’ like clockwork, you’re going to wake up wide awake three hours later for the most part.” Levinson said he wants people to know that patients get a lot of rebound insomnia from alcohol. “So I’m very strongly against drinking alcohol if you have an insomnia problem,” he said. Levinson shared that people may begin to self-medicate, which can potentially lead to more alcohol use which may run the risk of alcoholism.

Barbecues kick off free program By Promise Yee


JUNE 30, 2017

OCEANSIDE — Two neighborhood barbecues let Oceanside families know about the free Summer Meal program that feeds kids age 18 and younger. “We are hoping to get the word out to all of our families about the free Summer Meal program,” Maria Yanez, city Neighborhood Services housing program manager, said. The first barbecue was held June 22 at Joe Balderrama Park. It included community resource booths, displays from the Police and Fire departments, the bookmobile, a bounce house, face painting and giveaways of fresh produce. The second barbecue was held June 29 at Libby Lake Park. It repeated the fun of the earlier barbecue. Community resources at both events included Vis-

ta Community Clinic, Go Green/Zero Waste, Arts of Learning, Education Begins in the Home, Hollandia Dairy, local farmers and Interfaith Community Services. This year 17 sites are serving meals to feed an estimated 1,900 kids a day. A dozen sites serve breakfast and 15 serve lunch. No paperwork is required to participate in the Summer Meal program. Meals are served to all kids who show up. Locations are at schools, recreation clubs and the Civic Center Library. Library staff reported serving lunch to more than 100 kids on June 20. “These programs will help address the food insecurity rates in the city of Oceanside,” Yanez said. Thanks to a partnership between the school district,

city Neighborhood Services, the Public Library and Parks and Recreation and San Diego Hunger Coalition, students will also enjoy a summer enrichment program at mealtime. Engaging activities, reading clubs and recreational games will help kids beat the “summer slide” of learning loss while on a break from school. During the school year 24 schools in the Oceanside Unified School District participate in the National School Lunch Program. Sixty-three percent of students in the district qualify for free or reduced lunches. “These meals would not be available to students over the summer if not for the Summer Meal program,” Yanez said. To find the nearest location serving free summer lunches, text FOOD or COMIDA to 877-877.

‘No scar’ hair restoration technology OCEANSIDE — Hair transplants have come a long way in the last seven or so years. What was once only available as a moderately invasive procedure, which would leave a long linear scar, is now also offered in a vastly improved way. “We offer a relatively new procedure called the FUE hair transplant, and among its notable benefits are that it is minimally invasive and there is no scar,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD said. The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure is not as widely available as the traditional Follicular Unit Grafting method, and Wagner is proud to be able to offer it to North County clients. “While both methods produce natural looking results, with FUE, our team in particular has a more artistic approach than some of

Odd Files By Chuck Shepherd ADVERTISERS ARE COMING FOR YOU The New York Times reported in May that the "sophistication" of Google's and Facebook's ability to identify potential customers of advertisements is "capable of targeting ads ... so narrow that they can pinpoint, say, Idaho residents in long-distance relationships who are contemplating buying a minivan." Facebook's ad manager told the Times that such a description matches 3,100 people (out of Idaho's 1.655 million). [New York Times, 5-14-2017] GOVERNMENT IN ACTION! Harry Kraemer, 76, owner of Sparkles Cleaning Service in London, Ontario, was alone in his SUV recently and decided to light up a cigarette based on his 60-year habit, but was spotted by Smoke-Free Ontario officers and cited for three violations. Since his vehicle was registered to his business, and the windows were up, the cab constituted an "enclosed workspace." It took a long legal fight, but in May, the Provincial Offences Court cut Kraemer a break and dismissed the tickets. [National Post, 5-8-2017] — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) finally prevailed in federal appeals court in February in its Endangered Species Act designation that wetlands in Louisiana's St. Tammany Parish should be preserved as a safe habitat for the dusky gopher frog. Landowners barred from developing the land pointed out that no such frogs have been spotted there for "decades," but have been seen elsewhere

the other offices that might offer it,” Wagner said. While the FUE procedure can be done via robot or computer, it can also be performed by highly skilled surgeons, which is the difference between MyHairTransplantMD and its competitors. “The human eye can see things that a computer or robot can’t,” Wagner said. “We do the artistic side of the procedure. We found

that advanced technology is amazing, but in the wrong hands it yields bad results. What we do is more effective from a re-sults perspective.” The first step in the FUE technique is to remove follicles from the donor area. The hairs are extracted in their naturally occurring one-, two-, three- and four-hair follicle units from ar-eas of the scalp that are resistant to balding. They

are then transplanted into tiny incisions in the balding areas. “This is essentially the ‘one hair at a time’ method,” Wagner said. “The hairs are extracted the same way they grow, in naturally occurring clusters.” This is in contrast to FUG, in which donor harvesting is extracted from a strip. The FUG, as a result, has a longer 14 to 30-day re-

in the state and in Mississippi. FWS concluded the St. Tammany area could be a place that dusky gopher frogs might thrive if they decided to return. [The Daily Caller, 2-14-2017]

THE CONTINUING CRISIS Japan is in constant conflict over whether to become more militarily robust (concerned increasingly with North Korea) even though its constitu-

covery time. The extracted hairs are then examined to assess their integrity and suitability for transplantation. “These grafts are then meticulously placed at the correct angle, direction and pattern of your original hair,” Wagner said. “This allows enough blood to nourish every hair during the brief five to seven-day healing process. Then the donor area is dressed with an antibiotic ointment. There are no sutures, and no bandages.” Although because of the intense skill and labor involved FUE is nearly twice the cost of FUG — $7 to $9 per graft range vs. $3 to $5 — there are a number of reasons why so many clients find it’s worth it. “Not only will there be no linear scar, no sutures and no post-op pain, we are also not limited by the size of the case,” Wagner said.

“In fact large cases are our specialty. We are only limited by low donor density and whether there are prior hair transplant scars.” Another advantage to FUE is that the recovery is much quicker. Additionally, it’s ideal for clients who prefer to wear their hair short and would feel prohibited by having a large linear scar. “The tiny circular marks where the donor hairs have been extracted are usually undetectable,” Wagner said.

The goal is to have fun while making a difference for the soccer moms in their lives as well as other San Diegans battling the disease. One hundred percent of proceeds raised at this event will benefit Susan G. Komen San Diego (Komen San Diego). Over the last five years, Kickin’ It Challenge events have raised more than $180,000 for Komen San Diego, making it one of Komen’s largest third-party fundraisers. Founding directors of the Kickin’ It Chal-

Council OKs specific plan for bluff-top resort By Bianca Kaplanek

DEL MAR — Council members at the June 19 meeting approved the use of a specific plan for the development of an approximately 16-acre oceanfront parcel above North Beach. Robert Green Company and Zephyr Partners, two Encinitas-based developers, are planning to transform the residential property into a bluff-top resort that will include branded villas, restaurants, meeting space, a public access park and walking trails. The Lazier family that owns the property at 929 Border Ave. was in the process of subdividing its 6.2

acres into five single-family residential lots. Zephyr cofounder Brad Termini said when he was approached by a broker to buy and develop that parcel he felt it would be “an absolute shame” to build houses and keep the site closed to the public, as it has been for nearly a century. He teamed up with Green, a luxury hotel developer, and the two are in a long-term agreement to buy the Lazier property, one lot to the north and another to the south. Because the parcels must be rezoned, several legislative changes and discretionary permits must be

approved. Land use modifications require community plan and local coastal program amendments and a new zoning map. All three actions mandate action by the Planning Commission, City Council and California Coastal Commission and are subject to environmental review. Also needed are Design Review Board, coastal development and land conservation permits. Zoning changes can be made using one of two methods. A sequential process would initially create a new zoning chapter that could not contain any deviations or assess public benefits. A specific plan, which creates a special set of development standards for a particular area, encompasses all the legislative actions and regulatory development parameters and allows the public ben-

efit of the project to be addressed. The developers have agreed to develop and maintain an interactive website with project information, create a contact list to notify all interested parties, hold informal meetings with neighbors and stakeholders and conduct three public workshops. The latter would be in addition to the one mandated citizens’ participation program (CPP) meeting. Zephyr and Green held a CPP event May 6 and another May 13, although the second was not required. Additionally, interim presentations to the Planning Commission and Design Review Board are proposed to elicit early feedback during the process. The city is in the process of updating its policy for specific plans, but the developers sought approval before the changes are

adopted because environmental reviews will require data collection during the San Diego County Fair and summer thoroughbred race meet and they didn’t want to wait until 2018 to gather that information. “Clearly a specific plan is the right way to process a proposal of this scope and magnitude,” Councilman Dwight Worden said. Councilman Dave Druker, who opposed the approval in the 4-1 vote, disagreed. He said an ad hoc committee of residents should be formed and a public vote should be required not only for Del Mar Resort, as this project is being called, but for all large developments. “I believe that it’s important that we do have a citizens’ committee involved in this,” Druker said. “This is a major project. This is going to have major impact on the city, major impact on Solana Beach.”


data on in the coming quarter, and we’ve been doing a lot of work with the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., to better understand this,” said Stanford, adding that they were hoping to have more data in the upcoming quarter. Councilwoman Amanda Rigby thanked Stanford for the report. “When we first started talking about doing this (Innovate 78) and getting the regional involvement, I was a little skeptical of the program and how it would work in Vista,” she said. While it was important to bring up the region, Rigby said, her primary interests were in Vista. “You’ve proven how that would work in concert with the region and how we still are focusing efforts on Vista and bringing jobs here in North County as well as Vista,” she said. “I just want to say thank you for doing such a great job. I’m not so much of a skeptic anymore.” Mayor Judy Ritter thanked Stanford for the presentation. “We’ve been working with all the mayors of the four adjoining cities, trying to bring in more jobs and good-paying jobs to our region,” Ritter said. “That’s our focus right now.”

ESCONDIDO — An amendment to the resolution of necessity for the Citracado Parkway extension project was approved Wednesday by the City Council. Debra Lundy, real property manager for the city, said it was needed due to a clerical error, the omissions of deeds to be attached to the land. The adjustment is the only fee parcel being acquired by the city, which is a necessity, she added. The eminent domain project, which has been in the works for several years, will complete the missing section of the roadway between Harmony Grove, Village Parkway and Andreason Drive. The city conducted a review of the project, which was outlined in the

environmental impact report from April 2012. Alternatives were discussed with residents in four community meetings and a trio of public gatherings. “The project as currently designed was located and planned in a manner that will be most compatible with the greatest public good and least private injury,” Lundy said. She also reported the city and property owners have had more than 35 meetings in the past four years to develop the plan. However, the property owners did not submit a counteroffer to the city’s statutory offer on April 14, 2015. According to Lundy, the owners did not feel the offer matched what the land is worth, alTURN TO EXTENSION ON A3

Free summer lunches being served up to kids in need By Promise Yee

VISTA — This year’s free summer lunch program kicked off with a Nutrition Celebration at the Boys & Girls Club on June 20. The program provides a nutritious meal to any child, age 18 or younger, who shows up — no forms or paperwork are required. During the kick-off, families engaged in nutrition-related games and quizzes, and were entertained by 1960s theme music and dance. The Boys & Girls Club partnered with

Vista Unified School District to hold the celebration. It is one of more than a dozen sites in the district where free summer lunches are served. “Summer lunches ensure that children receive healthy and nutritious meals at no cost during the summer,” Jamie Phillips, district Child Nutrition Services director, said. “This program helps to address children who face food insecurity and helps to bridge that gap.” The USDA Summer Meals Program takes

place across the U.S. “These programs feed tens of thousands of children a day across the county,” Dave Palmer, marketing consultant, said. “We know that more children can be served and provided with access to healthy meals at no cost.” Vista Unified School District has participated in the summer lunch program for more than five years. When the school district first began three sites served summer lunches. Each year more sites have

been added to assure easy, walkable access for kids. Two additional sites were added this year to bring the total to 17. “For children who rely on school meal programs during the year this ensures that they are not forgotten during summer break,” Phillips said. “By partnering with organizations like the Boys & Girls Club, children are in a safe environment where they stay engaged in educational and recreational activities.” Depending on the site, fresh hot or refrigerated lunches are served Monday through Friday. “At sites that serve hot meals, staff come in daily and prepares meals for the children,” Phillips said. “At sites where cold meals are served, WaveCrest Café Central Kitchen prepares and packages all of the meals.” Participating sites see the lunch service as a big plus. “By providing great meals to our summer pro-

gram participants every day, we know that we are able to address their physical needs as well as social and emotional needs,” Raul Castillo, Boys & Girls Club director of operations and programs, said. Approximately 14,000 students in the district qualify for free or reduced cost meals during the school year, and would benefit from the free summer lunch program. “We want this program to have as few barriers as possible,” Phillips said. “Last year the Summer Feeding program served almost 48,000 meals. We are predicting to do approximately 50,000 meals this summer.” Free lunches will be served through Aug. 11. Lunch times and menus are posted on the school district website. Meals at all sites are served on a first-come, first-served basis. To find the nearest location, text FOOD or COMIDA to 877877.

Artist Bryan Snyder reflects on a decade of supporting art in Carlsbad By Tyra Wu

CARLSBAD — When artist Bryan Snyder returned to his hometown of Carlsbad 10 years ago, he saw the village as a blank canvas. Snyder wanted to combine the vibrant artistic culture that he saw in San Francisco with the strong community in Carlsbad to create a thriving art scene. “I say it was a blank canvas because I saw the potential,” Snyder said. “The paints were out there and the canvas was here but for whatever reason the paint wasn’t being applied to the canvas.” Since then Snyder has worked to paint the village, helping to mold the area into the colorful, quirky spot that it is now. To do this he created an equation for a more creative culture

in Carlsbad which includes adding more street art, encouraging professional working artists to come to the village and cultivating community-based projects. He’s also responsible for many of the playful murals hidden throughout the village. “This community means a lot to me, it really does and I felt like there could be a better community,” Snyder said. “So I sat down and sketched out my equation and I went hard.” One of these community-based projects is the Carlsbad Art Wall, a rotating mural painted every two months by an artist from Los Angeles or San Diego. March marks the third year since Snyder started the Art Wall. “I’ve been told that

San Marcos resident earns San Diego Fair’s Homebrewer of the Year By Joe Naiman

DEL MAR — The San Diego County Fair’s homebrew competition includes a Homebrewer of the Year award for the zymurgist who accumulates the most points based on place ribbons, and this year’s honor was given to San Marcos resident Nick Corona. “It was definitely a surprise and absolutely an honor,” Corona said. Corona won a firstplace ribbon, three second-place category awards, a third-place class recognition and a fourth-place designation. Last year Bob MacKay of Carlsbad won the Homebrewer of the Year award. “He’s helped me out significantly with my brewing,” Corona said. MacKay and Corona are both members of QUAFF, which stands for Quality Ale and Fermentation Fraternity. Corona has been a member of QUAFF, which meets at the Karl Strauss brewery in the eastern Pacific Beach area of San Diego, since 2012. “It’s a great club,” Corona said. “A lot of people have helped me out in that club.” Corona entered 10 beers in the 2015 homebrew competition and only won two ribbons; he took first place in the European Amber Lager category and fifth for his English Pale Ale entry. Corona also entered 10 beers last year and won only third place in the Weizen/Weissbier category and fifth place for his New England Cider bottle. “Historically I haven’t done very well the last couple of years,” Corona said. “I was really happy to break out of what I considered a slump in this competition.” This year Corona took first place in the Weissbier competition. “That beer has done the most for me out of any of my recipes,” Corona said. “This actually has been my most winningest

recipe.” Last year Corona entered that Weissbier in the National Homebrewers Conference competition and it received Best of Show for the best beer at the annual conference. That encouraged Corona to submit that beer to the San Diego County Fair competition. “I entered that again,” he said. Corona’s second-place ribbons were for beers entered in the Marzen, International Amber Lager and Irish Red Ale classes. He placed third in the Schwarzbier category. The fourth-place award was for an American IPA bottle. Corona noted that IPA is usually one of the most heavily entered categories. “I was really proud of the fourth place,” he said. “A lot of competitions don’t award fourth,” Corona said. “The San Diego fair is one of the few.” Corona was raised in Carlsbad and attended Santa Fe Christian High School. He has lived in San Marcos since 2007. He began brewing beer in 2012 and joined QUAFF shortly afterward. Corona has been entering the San Diego County Fair competition since 2013. Corona noted his appreciation to his wife, Kandy. “There’s no way I’d be able to do this without her support,” Corona said. Sean Bush of Oceanside took first place in the Schwarzbier competition. San Marcos brewer Alton Hitchcock Jr. had the firstplace Czech Amber Lager bottle. John Horton of Oceanside took first place in both the American IPA class and the Helles Bock competition. Escondido zymurgist Jim McCaskey had the first-place Belgian Dubbel entry. Escondido’s Jeffrey Smith brewed the highest-rated Alternative Grain Beer submission. Carlsbad’s Tim Wang received first place for his Kolsch bottle.

this is one of the best projects that has happened in Carlsbad,” Snyder said. “People actually travel to here to see the most recent mural, so it’s bringing people to Carlsbad.”

However, the wall has been more than just an opportunity to bring new art into Carlsbad. Snyder also wants to encourage people to come and witness the creative process and hope-

fully be inspired to do the same. He also holds Teen Art Workshops a week before each new artist paints the wall, in order to teach teens about urban art. After a decade of work nurturing the artistic culture in Carlsbad, Snyder has begun to see a shift. Although part of Snyder’s goal was to inspire community members and local businesses, he also felt that in order for the culture to shift, the local government had to be supportive as well. “The Art Wall marks a major milestone because for the first time in 10 years, they’ve publicly supported my efforts,” Snyder said.

This is also the second year that Snyder has received an arts and culture grant, allowing for both public and financial support from the city of Carlsbad. Although Snyder has seen progress toward his goal, he is in no way finished with his work. He’s currently developing a website that will be launching soon that will completely document all of his past projects. For Snyder, the city of Carlsbad is art itself. “The village as a whole is my favorite piece of artwork,” he said. “All the community art projects, people and local businesses make this community a masterpiece.”

9th annual Taste of Vista draws huge numbers By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Bold and zesty culinary delights were on the menu at the ninth annual Taste of Vista, where 26 local restaurants, 12 breweries and three wineries participated. Hosted by the Vista Village Business Association, historic downtown Vista was the place to be for the June 21 event. Like last year, this was a sold-out festivity drawing 1,000 guests. For event-goers, tantalizing scents wafted in the air. Restaurants, breweries and wineries collaborated to give everyone a taste of what is happening in their town. “It’s surprising how many people don’t know all the restaurants that are

around, so I just think this is a great community event,” said Debbie Medrano, event planner of Five Star Premiere Events. As new restaurants continue to sprout in town, the Taste of Vista is evolving and growing. According to Medrano, five new restaurants are about to open in the area soon, but they weren’t prepared to take part in this year’s annual event. But there’s always next year. This is the second consecutive year that Medrano has planned the event and she shared that there were changes. One of which was that guests could check in an hour before the official kickoff. Early check-in al-

Marines train for mine removal CAMP PENDLETON — Marines and civilians from Marine Corps Systems Command based in Quantico, Virginia, visited Camp Pendleton to teach Marines from 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 1st Marine Division, how to properly install, operate and maintain the MK-154 Launcher Mine Clearance. The MK-154 LMC is being reintroduced to the fleet after safety issues halted its employment in 2013, according to Capt. Anthony Molnar, a combat engineer officer with MarCorSysCom. Some updates include a self-bleeding hydraulic system and a test system that lets the operator know if it is safe to fire. Additionally, vehicle power is no longer necessary to fire the weapon. “If something happens to the vehicle and you lose power, there is an internal power system that runs with the MK-154,” said Staff Sgt. Bryan Hildebrandt, MK-154 instructor for Assault Amphibian Schools Battalion. A fully loaded MK-154 carries three rockets and three line charges. Each rocket, when detonated, will clear a path 14 meters wide by 100 meters long. “I like the fact that I’m able to

support other units,” said Hildebrandt. “I think it’s a great experience to see the bigger picture of how the Marine Corps conducts mechanized raids.” In 2003, Marines were able to use the MK-154 to breach areas during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Marines from 3rd AA Bn. are participating in a weeklong course to train and license them to operate the MK-154 LMC. The course includes classroom instruction, practical application and a firing day. Once these Marines are trained and qualified, the assault amphibian community will be responsible for teaching other Marines. It will be a requirement that all assault amphibian vehicle crewmen know how to operate the weapon system. “It allows us to maintain that force of readiness when it comes to ship to shore movement and allows us to connect the Navy with the Marine Corps,” he said. The system is the only amphibious breaching capability within the Department of Defense allowing the forces assault mined areas.

lowed everyone the time they needed to peruse and taste everything. The Taste of Vista also morphed into a walking event. “Our floor plan changed. Last year, everything was on Main Street, and if you were a restaurant downtown, you brought your restaurant to a canopy,” she said. “This year, if you’re a restaurant downtown like Yellow Deli, people just walk over to Yellow Deli and then walk over to the Flying Pig, which is on Santa Fe, and then you cross over Santa Fe over to Cinepolis to visit Lamp Post, Cold Stone and Little Cakes.” Medrano shared that this change provided better

exposure for the restaurants since attendees could physically visit the businesses. As for vendor participation, the restaurant numbers have doubled. Medrano attributed this to building a sense of trust with the restaurants since they planned the event in the prior year. According to Medrano, since so much praise was given to last year’s Taste of Vista, new establishments wanted to join this year especially given the fact that so many restaurants liked the new plan of guests visiting their establishments in person. Medrano extended huge thanks to everyone for their help, including this year’s event sponsor, Belch-

Soroptimist International of Vista raises awareness on human trafficking By Christina Macone-Greene

VISTA — Human trafficking remains a serious problem and Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland is doing their part to fight it. While Soroptimists work hard in their fundraising efforts to support local organizations, they have become a bright light of advocacy in raising awareness about sexual exploitation with the North San Diego County Anti-Human Trafficking Collaborative. The collaborative creation was a way to serve as an outreach source to the community. According to Kaye Van Nevel of Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland, the collaborative is about a diverse group of individuals in a community organization who are committed to eliminating human trafficking in modern-day society. “We provide a platform to share information, improve services, educate ourselves and the public, and advocate for policy and legislation related to human trafficking,” Van Nevel said. The collaborative has

been in existence for nearly a decade. It conducts informal meetings at the fellowship hall of the United Methodist Church in Vista the first Thursday of every other month. In attendance include members of the Vista Unified School District, Child Protective Services, law enforcement and those in the legal profession. Meetings are dark in the summer but will resume in September. Van Nevel said that the impetus for the outreach was because San Diego County has a significant problem with the sexual exploitation of children, women, boys and girls. Many residents in San Diego County are shocked to discover that human trafficking is occurring in their own backyard. Van Nevel wants people to know that youth targeted for human trafficking can be picked up anywhere, including San Diego school campuses; and, the threat continues to be countywide if gangs are profiting from the crime. “They (victims) are not coerced into forceful labor,” she said. “They are wooed and are courted by very clever young men.” She

added that the internet was another solicitation portal. Education and awareness about issues of exploitation is one powerful way to combat it. “From there, on a very personal level, we can then spread this information about what to look for such as how to recognize possible victims, to alert our children and grandchildren,” Van Nevel said. Another way to fight the cause is by joining an organization that supports the collaborative. One example is mentoring survivors. “We have a safe house in North County and a survivor mentorship who help adult women by teaching them skills they need and helping them get back into the workforce,” Van Nevel said. Van Nevel said the recovery process of human trafficking is like that for PTSD and the need for qualified therapists continues to grow.

The class project was .93 a key component in a larger scale.93 full-kitchen remodel 4.17 by Escondido's Emmanuel Faith4.28 Community Church group “Men on a Mission.” Gordon Axelson, member of “Men on a Mission,” was a student in the PCC cabinetry class, and suggested the joint effort by both groups to benefit local women in need of a safe housing. Students from Palomar, led by professor and owner of Foothill Cabinetworks Brendan Matthews, were eager to donate labor to furnish the house with three full walls of cabinets, as well as a kitchen island. The class consisted of 20 students ranging from recent high school graduates to retirees with skill levels between novice to expert. Matthews, who has been a professor for nearly 20 years, led the students in nearly 100 hours of labor to complete the cabinetry. “The reason we thought it was such a good idea to do this project was twofold,” said Matthews. “It gives the students valuable real-world, hands-on experience in design and construction, and it was an opportunity for the class to contribute to a great cause in our community. It was a win/win.”

Professional palliative care conference takes place at CSUSM By Rebecca Sykes

SAN MARCOS — The second annual professional palliative care conference took place at Cal State University San Marcos (CSUSM) on June 23. Doctors, nurses, social workers, nurse practitioners and psychologists were among the attendees at this year’s conference. The conference included presenters addressing issues in providing palliative care, a panel on the End of Life Option Act, and discussions on palliative and hospice care and ethical issues. Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses and focuses on giving these patients relief from

their symptoms, pain and stress. The conference began with opening remarks from experts within palliative care, as well as CSUSM President Karen Haynes. “The CSU Institute for Palliative Care, which we proudly launched in 2012, has its home here,” Haynes said. “And it is a stellar example, from my perspective, of that forward and strategic thinking. As you well know better than others, America’s elderly are a growing population. Ten thousand baby boomers, and I resemble one of those, turn 65 each day. It was this reality as well as the increase in chronic diseases among all age groups that

Del Mar’s Ausmus is still driving the Detroit Tigers


omeone mentioned Jimmy O’s, the Del Mar watering hole, and with that Tigers manager Brad Ausmus finally smiled. Detroit snapped a season-high, eight-game losing streak in San Diego and just maybe a Sunday toast was in order. “That’s near my house,” Ausmus said. “I’ve been there before.” Ausmus, though, didn’t stick around after the Padres took two of three weekend games from the Tigers. And for Ausmus, the former Padres catcher and front-office executive, that’s a plus. It’s hard to explain how Detroit eclipses Del Mar this time of year. But that’s what Ausmus’ occupation requires and he’ll pay the price. Although there was some doubt whether Ausmus would still be managing the Tigers before Sunday’s win. Tigers fans were harping on Ausmus when he rolled through town. In his fourth year with Detroit, he hasn’t quite delivered what its faithful expect from its high-priced roster. So that had the temperature elevated in Ausmus’ office and it had nothing to do with summer’s debut. “I am not comfortable unless my (seat) is hot,” he said. The Tigers have been far from that, which has Ausmus’ security being questioned. But with a shoddy bullpen, an underachieving lineup and an inconsistent rotation, well, good luck with that. “Two things I knew for sure coming in,” Ausmus said. “A lot of what happens with a baseball team is out of the manager’s control. And when I was hired there was a good chance I might get fired. Not many managers leave on their own terms. It’s just the nature of the job.” There are only 30 of them in the Major Leagues. What’s zany is Ausmus is one of three managers with a North County residence. Dave Roberts of Cardiff has the Los Angeles Dodgers

sports talk jay paris in first place. Bud Black of Rancho Santa Fe has directed the Colorado Rockies to their best start in franchise history. Then there’s Ausmus, who’s in his last year of his contract and ain’t baseball a grand game? After getting back to the .500 mark (29-29) on June 7, the Tigers lost 12 of their next 15 games to fall into the AL Central cellar. Ausmus doesn’t whine. Nor does he upend the postgame spread. Or produce a fake tirade during a clubhouse meeting. “If it was a lack of effort or a lack of caring, then there would have to be a discussion,” Ausmus said. “But our energy couldn’t have been better. They are pulling for each other. “I don’t need to tell them we haven’t won lately. They are pretty aware of it. They get it. They care. They come in with good attitudes.” The same goes for Ausmus. His dry sense of humor remains intact, knowing better than most about baseball’s roller coaster ride. He caught nearly 2,000 games in an 18-year career, which included being with the Padres from 1993 to ’96. Ausmus worked in San Diego’s front office after retiring in 2010, then landed the Tigers gig at age 44. Back then Ausmus’ hair was all black. Not sure the same is true now as Ausmus digs in. “I’m not folding up shop, that’s not how I operate,” he said. “I guess that’s why I don’t worry about it. You keep grinding and fighting until someone tells you, ‘Hey we don’t want you to grind and fight any more.’ ” Contact Jay Paris at Follow him @jparis_sports.

gave us the push for finding the institute.” Haynes shared her beliefs that palliative care will make a change in California and beyond, that palliative care will change health care and that it needs to be the way to change people’s lives. “Improving access to palliative care means continuing, means overcoming obstacles, improve workforce development and increase community awareness,” Haynes said. “Advancing compassionate care and ensuring everyone has access to the best quality of life through palliative care is essential and we envision a future in which it is readily available to all.”

After Haynes’ remarks, Dr. Karl Steinberg discussed how palliative care in California has come a long way, but still has a ways to go. “There are still parts of the state where there are no hospice services available,” Steinberg said. Steinberg then addressed the detrimental effects of Medicare being cut, regarding the government’s plan for “Trump Care.” “If Medicare gets cut, poor and older people … they are the ones who will get hurt the most,” Steinberg said. Sharon Hamhill, PhD, faculty director for CSU Institute for Palliative Care at CSUSM, was baffled by

the government’s plan to cut Medicaid. “I worry we will become a country of the haves and have nots and personally I can’t understand why we don’t make health care a basic right for everyone,” Hamhill said. “Yes, there are a lot of different issues to consider, paying for it, but I think at the heart of it, there has to be a belief that it is the right thing to do.” After opening remarks, a panel discussed the End of Life Option Act, which is a California law that permits people with serious illnesses to get aid-indying medication if certain conditions are met. The law went into effect on June 9, 2016.

A panel, which included people experienced in working with patients who used the end of life option, discussed their experiences. Sybil Cimicata, a licensed clinical social worker for Kaiser Permanente, discussed how this act is very controversial and people judge her for what she does. “I am proud to help people who are suffering,” Cimicata said. The conference ended around 4:30 p.m. with a film screening of the 2016 Academy Award-nominated Netflix documentary “Extremis.” Next year’s conference will be held June 15 at CSUSM.


Summer is just around the corner — get your skin ready in 5 simple steps! By Dr. Amanda Lloyd

• Sunscreen Sunscreen is essential to protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. Make sure your sunscreen is SPF of 50, has zinc or titanium and is broad spectrum. Sunscreen with a SPF of 50 blocks out two times more of the harmful ultraviolet radiation than SPF 30. • Antioxidants Antioxidants are an amazing adjunct to sunscreen and should be applied to your skin before your sunscreen in the morning. When ultraviolet radiation hits your skin it generates free radicals which bounce around within your skin and damage your DNA, collagen and elastin, affecting the health of your skin overall. Antioxidants act like ping pong paddles hitting the free radical ping pong balls off your skin. The three most effective antioxidants for this purpose are vitamin C, vitamin E and iron. • Hat A wide-brimmed hat is a necessary part of your summer attire. A baseball cap just doesn’t do the trick as it only protects your forehead. Ideally your hat would have a wide enough brim that your chin and sides of your face are not in the sun. That being said, a hat is an accessory to your sunscreen, not a substitution, but have fun shopping for a large brimmed summer hat to block those harmful rays. • Clothing with UPF Clothing now can have something called an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) rating. This rating lets you know how

much ultraviolet radiation is filtered out by the fabric. Rash guards, exercise shirts, bathing suit cover-ups and more now come with a UPF rating so your skin is even more protected. Just like a hat, your outfit with UPF is in addition to your base layer of sunscreen that you apply every morning. • Botox and Sunglasses The bright summer sun causes us to squint. Unfortunately, squinting is terrible for your skin as it is one of the causes of the creases between the eyeb row s , or the “11” lines. Using sunglasses to filter out

some of the ultraviolet radiation to protect our eyes is critical as well as using the sunglasses to prevent squinting. The more you squint the worse “11” lines become. To help reduce these “11” lines or prevent them from forming, Botox is your best friend. Botox is used to relax the muscles so that you can’t squint as strongly as before, giving your skin time to recover from constantly being squished together. This results in eradication of those “11” lines!I wish you a happy and safe summer spent outside in beautiful Southern California! About Dr. Lloyd Dr. Amanda Abramson Lloyd is a board certified dermatologist affiliated with Tri-City Medical Center who believes in providing personalized, tailored care so you leave feeling happy in your skin.

Oceanside reviews reverse angle parking By Promise Yee

OCEANSIDE — Oceanside took a second look at reverse angle parking in its downtown after lines were striped in almost three years ago. City staff shared the findings of a driver survey of reverse angle parking with City Council on June 21, which council unanimously approved. The back-in parking was added to downtown streets as part of the Mission Avenue improvement plans in 2014. Spaces are on North Cleveland Street and Seagaze Drive. Benefits over head-in parallel parking include greater driver visibility, fewer collisions, improved pedestrian and bike safety, better loading and unloading and more parking spots. The survey of city drivers was launched in March. Seventy-five randomly selected drivers and 25 Mission Avenue business owners took the survey. Drivers were evenly split in being observed using back-in, head-in and parallel parking. The survey asked drivers and business owners to rate ease of back-in parking, knowledge of its benefits and desire for more back-in parking. Response choices were positive, neutral or negative. The survey also recorded how the responder parked, or whether the responder is a business owner. Staff reported overall

results of usage, knowledge and benefits of reverse angle spaces were neutral. “The respondents were less interested over the pro or con of reverse angle parking and more concerned over the overall availability of parking in the downtown area,” city staff said in the report. Nearly all business owners wrote in comments that the lack of nearby parking had a negative impact on their business for customers and employees. There were also numerous comments from business owners that employees had been ticketed for exceeding two-hour parking limits. Other interesting survey results were drivers who back-in park rated their knowledge of the benefits of reverse angle parking the highest, and were most in favor of additional reverse angle spaces. City staff concluded reverse angle parking should be considered in future road improvement projects because of the many benefits it brings. Councilwoman Esther Sanchez requested the review when she found herself the only no vote against approving reverse angle parking three years ago. Part of her objection to the spaces was the difficulty to back into them. Other council members said people would adapt to the new parking strategy.

I worry my kids are not going to get a valuable education at public schools anymore.” David Whiddon of San Marcos called the move “shameful.” “This is a teacher that genuinely cares,” Whiddon wrote. “Both of my sons had Mr. Romero and greatly enjoyed his class.” A former student, Jasmine Velare of Vista, said Romero was “an amazing teacher.” “I was lucky enough to get him myself,” she wrote. “He truly cares for what he TURN TO TEACHER ON A15

ESCONDIDO — An amendment to the resolution of necessity for the Citracado Parkway extension project was approved Wednesday by the City Council. Debra Lundy, real property manager for the city, said it was needed due to a clerical error, the omissions of deeds to be attached to the land. The adjustment is the only fee parcel being acquired by the city, which is a necessity, she added. The eminent domain project, which has been in the works for several years, will complete the missing section of the roadway between Harmony Grove, Village Parkway and Andreason Drive. The city conducted a review of the project, which was outlined in the

environmental impact report from April 2012. Alternatives were discussed with residents in four community meetings and a trio of public gatherings. “The project as currently designed was located and planned in a manner that will be most compatible with the greatest public good and least private injury,” Lundy said. She also reported the city and property owners have had more than 35 meetings in the past four years to develop the plan. However, the property owners did not submit a counteroffer to the city’s statutory offer on April 14, 2015. According to Lundy, the owners did not feel the offer matched what the land is worth, alTURN TO EXTENSION ON A3

day, 5-26-2017] -- Took It Too Far: Already, trendy restaurants have offered customers dining experiences amidst roaming cats (and in one bold experiment, owls), but the art house San Francisco Dungeon has planned a two-day (July 1 and 8) experimental “Rat Cafe” for those who feel their coffee or tea is better sipped while rats (from the local rat rescue) scurry about the room. Pastries are included for the $49.99 price, but the rats will be removed before the food comes. (Sponsors promise at least 15 minutes of “rat interaction,” and the price includes admission to the dungeon.) [, 5-18-2017] BRIGHT IDEAS Organizers of northern Germany’s Wacken Open Air Festival (billed as the world’s biggest metal music extravaganza) expect the 75,000 attendees to drink so much beer that they have built a nearly 4-milelong pipeline to carry 105,000 gallons to on-site taps. (Otherwise, keg-delivery trucks would likely muck up the grounds.) Some pipes were buried specifically for the Aug. 3 to Aug. 5 festival, but others had been used by local farmers for ordinary irrigation. [Deutsche Welle (Bonn), 5-23-2017] SMOOTH REACTIONS (1) Robert Ahorner, 57,

apparently just to “win” an argument with his wife, who was dissatisfied with their sex life, left the room with his 9mm semi-automatic and fired four shots at his penis. (As he said later, “If I’m not using it, I might as well shoot it off.”) Of course, he missed, and police in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, said no laws were violated. (2) In a lawsuit filed against an allegedly retaliating former lover, Columbia University School of Public Health professor Mady Hornig said her jilted boss tried repeatedly to harm her professional standing, even twice calling her into his office, dropping his trousers, and asking her professional opinion of the lesion on his buttock. [GazetteExtra (Janesville), 5-15-2017] [New York Post, 5-20-2017] FINE POINTS OF THE LAW Convicted murderer John Modie, 59, remains locked up (on an 18-to-life sentence), but his several-hours-long 2016 escape attempt from Hocking (Ohio) Correctional Institution wound up unpunishable -- because of a “technicality.” In May 2017, the judge, lamenting the inflexible law, found Modie not guilty of the escape because prosecutors had, despite numerous opportunities, failed to identify the county in which Hocking Correctional Institution is located and thus did not “prove” that element of the crime (i.e., that the court in Logan, Ohio, had

jurisdiction of the case). (Note to prosecutors: The county was Hocking). [Athens Messenger via WOABTV (Athens), 5-24-2017] BLUFFS CALLED (1) In May, Charles Nichols III, 33, facing charges in Cheatham County, Tennessee, of sex with a minor, originally was tagged with a $50,000 bail -- until he told Judge Phillip Maxie to perform a sex act upon himself and dared Maxie to increase the bail. That led to a new bond of $1 million, then after further insubordination, $10 million, and so on until the final bail ordered was $14 million. (2) Jose Chacon, 39, was arrested in Riviera Beach, Florida, in May after allegedly shooting, fatally, a 41-year-old acquaintance who had laughed at Chacon’s first shot attempt (in which the gun failed to fire) and taunted Chacon to try again. The second trigger-pull worked. [WKRNTV (Nashville), 5-19-2017] [Palm Beach Post, 5-152017] PEOPLE WITH ISSUES In May, Douglas Goldsberry, 45, was charged in the Omaha, Nebraska, neighborhood of Elkhorn with paying prostitutes to do his erotic bidding (“75 times” he used them, according to a police report) -- to strip, baring their breasts while standing on the front porch of his neighbors across the street while Goldsberry watched and masturbated.
