Cow, pie in the face reward students of Bobier Elementary By Tony Cagala

VISTA — To say there’s a lot going on at Bobier Elementary School might be an understatement to its faculty, staff and students. Excitement and interest is growing on the kindergarten through fifth grade campus, with expectations of new enrollment boundaries in the fall to a possible learning model switch at the end of the year to the creation of a new engineering Genius Lab lat-

er this August — and if that wasn’t enough, last Friday, students got a thrill when seeing their principal kiss a cow and get a pie thrown in her face. The cow and the pie in the face were meant as rewards to the students, who, for the week of March 2 through March 6, completed their Read Across America challenge, reading 1,758,387 words. The school’s top reader, fifth grader Lesly Simental, who finished

16 books during that week, got the honor of throwing a pie in Principal Shannon Garcia’s face. The kiss was “really wet,” Garcia said. Third grader Matthew Aguilar said it was “kind of disgusting,” to see his principal kiss the cow. But he did think it was funny to watch her get a pie in the face.

Housing affordability becoming an issue in North County By Ellen Wright

REGION — Nearly half of renters in North County spend 35 percent or more of their income on housing, according to a report published by San Diego North Economic Development Council. Housing affordability is becoming a problem in North County, which is a result of a strengthening economy, BW Research’s President Josh Williams said at the North County Economic Summit Tuesday. When there are more full-time jobs, there are more people able to afford rent and move out on their own. Renters make up 43 percent of the households in North County. Homeowners are also spending a large percentage of their income on mortgages, with 38 percent of homeowners in North County spending over a third of their income on housing. According to the report, people are willing to spend a larger portion of their income towards housing because of the high quality of life in Panelists at the San Diego North County Economic Summit said a lack of housing coupled with TURN TO HOUSING ON 15

Country Club residents discuss possibilities for golf course By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO— Dozens of residents surrounding the now defunct Escondido Country Club and golf course spoke out March 5 saying they wanted some form of a golf course. The residents’ ideas ranged from a full executive course to a nine-hole course. Others offered ideas including a full-service spa, a boutique hotel that hosts weddings and a retirement community. The city held a workshop to get the public’s input on the golf course, which is owned by developer Michael Schlesinger. In August 2013 the city declared the property permanent open space after a resident group, Escondido Country Club Home Owners or ECCHO, rallied against a proposal to develop hundreds of homes on the property. This past November, voters struck down Schlesinger’s proposal to build 435 homes on the golf course. Currently Schlesinger is suing over the legality of the city’s ordinance declaring the golf course open space. As of press time, Judge Earl H. Earl Mass III’s decision was not yet available. He was expected to make a decision by March 12. The golf course’s current zoning of open space is broad, according to Principal Planner Jay Peterek. Open space zoning encompasses things such as

airports, firing ranges and colleges. Because of this broad term, city staff plans to develop code language in the city’s Master Plan. A public hearing will be required before any changes can be made to the General Plan. At the workshop, ECCHO President Mike Slater, said nearly 200 country club residents were polled for suggestions. He said 86 percent of the residents wanted some form of a golf course and that only nine percent did not oppose residential home development on the golf course. According to Schlesinger’s legal argument, when he purchased the golf course, it was zoned for residential use. He said he realized the golf course was no longer economically viable after doing a feasibility study. Another group has formed, ECC Partners LLC, to fund and publish a feasibility study of their own. “When it became clear that Mr. Schlesinger intended all along to develop the property, we wondered what the support was for his position that no golf course could ever be operated profitably at that site,” Ben Gage, of ECC Partners said. The company hired three consulting firms to study nearby golf courses throughout southern California. They will research different levels and types TURN TO COUNTRY CLUB ON A11

Industry clusters producing more jobs and need for STEM degrees By Ellen Wright

REGION — San Diego County produces more patents than any city in the nation, except for Santa Clara, which is home to Silicon Valley. North County hosts a number of well-educated residents, with almost two out of every five adults over the age of 25 holing a Bachelor’s degree or higher. However, the region still faces some difficulties. Experts discussed economic gains in the region and possible future pitfalls that accompany a strengthening economy at the San Diego North County Economic Summit held Tuesday at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa. One of the key findings of a report published by San Diego North Economic Development Council and Wells Fargo found that North County is on the rebound from the Great Recession. The number of jobs has increased, as has the quality of jobs in North County. North County has more employment than six states in the United States, including Delaware, Montana and South Dakota and a larger population than eight states.

Tier 1 jobs, which include CEOs, financial managers and highly skilled technical jobs like computer programmers and scientists, have increased in the region 10 percent since 2010. These jobs have an average wage of about $90,000 a year. “The number of jobs is important,” said study contributor and President and co-Founder of BW Research Josh Williams, “but quality is more important.” He attributed the increase in high-paying jobs to growing industry clusters in the region. The clusters in North County that witnessed the highest employment growth include clean technology, biotechnology and biomedical. The average pay in these industry clusters in the region is $90,000 annually and up. Connected tourism and agriculture have the most employees and the lowest average earnings per job, with employees making an average of $26,625 annually. While North County is a hub of life sciences, San Diego County as a whole is an innovator.

North County inventors make up nearly 40 percent of San Diego County’s total inventor-origin patents. One of the problems in North County is that it is a net exporter of talent. “(North County) export about 90,000 tier 1 professionals to down south in Sorrento Valley and up north in Orange County,” said Wil-

liams. While North County is exporting talent, it isn’t producing much. The region represents 3 percent of California’s population, yet it is only producing 1 percent of the state’s two- and four-year STEM degrees. The proportion of STEM degrees received in

North County has dropped from 2012 to 2013. “That’s a challenge because we have these high tech industries that are demanding degrees in engineering and sciences,” Williams said. Dr. Michael Alston, senior staff engineer at Qualcomm said the major thing his company needs is more

STEM graduates from high schools and colleges. “The most important skill that’s in use at Qualcomm is programming,” said Alston. Dr. Sunny Cooke, superintendent and president of MiraCosta College said in order to provide skilled graduates, the college needs help offering work-based experiences. “Education can’t do this by ourselves, we must have your partnership in training folks that you want to hire,” Cooke said. Dr. Jim Hamerly, interim dean of College and Business Administration at Cal State San Marcos agreed. “What we really need is extracurricular engagement and feedback,” said Hamerly. North County’s residents tend to be educated, which is important for the region’s economy. Hammerly talked about the importance of an education. “Lifetime earnings of a four-year college graduate will be approximately double that of a high school graduate,” Hammerly said. Looking to the future, Williams said industry leaders need to start thinking beyond the post-recession economy.

Health challenges add up for North County migrant farm workers By Promise Yee

REGION — Vista Community Clinic serves migrant farm workers, but clinic CEO Fernando Sañudo said in-clinic services are really a last stop in the healthcare of farm workers. Shelter, food and water are essential to health, and basics that farm workers have a challenge securing. Shelter for migrant workers that move from Carlsbad to Del Mar to follow minimum wage work is often self-made structures of scrap wood and plastic tarps. “Housing always continues to be an issue,”

Sañudo said. “They don’t have any type of regular housing for farm workers (in California, as they have in other states).” Water is sometimes purchased by farm workers, or collected and filtered or boiled. Food for farm workers, who live in encampments away from public transportation and town, is often limited to what is brought in by food trucks that stop at the fields. Sañudo said migrant farm workers often pick up poor local eating habits that lead to chronic health conditions such as diabetes

with farm workers to help them meet basic needs. Interfaith Community Services runs North County Labor Connection programs in Escondido and Carlsbad.

SAN MARCOS — Cal State San Marcos' president Karen Haynes was recently honored by Leadership California for what the group described as "groundbreaking achievements in leadership in academia." Haynes is one of six California State University women presidents who will receive the Trailblazer Award, which was created in 2010 to honor women who are pioneers in their fields. This is the first year, however, that Leadership California — a nonprofit aimed at increasing female representation in leadership roles — chose to award a group of women rather than an individual. Haynes and her co-awardees will be honored at the Legacy of Leadership awards ceremony April 27 in Los Angeles. “The recognition is a richly deserved honor for an accomplished group of academic leaders who have

dedicated their professional and personal lives to the service of all people in California” CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White said about the honor. “As mentors, CSU’s six women presidents serve as exemplary models for women leaders in higher education and beyond. We, as a system, laud them for their commitment to transforming their campuses, our state and the nation.” Haynes has led a renaissance at Cal State San Marcos, as the campus has grown in size, offerings and status during her 11-year tenure. Among the highlights are the university's expansion into Temecula, its partnership with Palomar Health to start the university's nursing school, the creation of a division of palliative care, and the upcoming move of its athletics programs to NCAA Division II status.

Lack of civility by Escondido’s supposed civic leader By Everett DeLano

Confusion sets in over ground water law California Focus By Thomas D. Elias


t’s beginning to look like the hosannas that greeted California’s first-ever groundwater regulation law were a tad premature when it passed late last summer. For after a tantalizing winter of heavy rains but insufficient snowfall to dent the state’s four-year drought, confusion over the groundwater rules has begun to set in. One thing for sure: The rain and snow of the just-concluding winter have not been nearly enough to begin recharging California’s more than 100 significant aquifers. These have been pumped without regulation for many decades, to the point where land subsidence has become highly visible in the San Joaquin Valley and some other areas. The new law’s rules sounded just fine — until someone happened to look at the time limits. The rules are set up to force water agencies to design local regulations preventing further overdrafts, an overdraft defined as pumping more water from underground than percolates down to replace it. The state will review all such plans and take over regulation if locals don’t enforce their new restrictions. Sounds great, and it might improve matters 25 years from now if there’s anything left in those aquifers. There had better be: California gets almost 40 percent of its current water supply from underground, and a California with little groundwater would have to cuts its population considerably. But there are no guarantees, partly because local water authorities have until the end of next year merely to decide who controls ground water in each area — this could be county supervisors or irrigation district officers or just about anyone. Whoever gets jurisdiction will have five to

seven more years to design plans creating sustainability — a balance between pumping and replenishment. After that, they’ll have 20 years to put the plans into action. So it might be about 30 years before the rules have any detectable effect, and at current pumping rates, there would be little or no groundwater left by then. Which means this law has never had teeth. Nor, after lobbyists for ground water users got through with the Legislature, was it intended to. It’s all been happy talk all along. But even that is now dissipating. While the choice of agency to control ground

And the new law doesn’t spell out patterns to follow, another of its multiple flaws. None of this, of course, prevented farm area lawmakers from opposing the weak new law while it was under consideration. Their shortsighted obstructionism has made that law practically unworkable even before it’s supposed to get started. So this law is both ludicrous and worthy of satire, except that the continuing depletion of aquifers is no laughing matter. Which means it’s time for the Legislature to get back to work, if lawmakers are capable of that. The timetable needs to

One thing for sure: The rain and snow of the just-concluding winter have not been nearly enough to begin recharging California’s more than 100 significant aquifers. water has been easy and obvious in some areas like the Coachella Valley of Riverside County, which sits atop a gigantic underground lake, disputes are rising elsewhere. Canal districts want control in some areas, but so do nearby irrigation districts. In some places, county supervisors want control, even though aquifers never conform to political boundaries or property lines. In some cases, more than one water agency’s boundaries cover parts of a single aquifer. In others, water agency lines cover more than one source of underground water. So power struggles are now in nascent phases, with some officials nonplussed. “I expect we’ll coordinate to share basins with other districts,” says one water manager. “But we’re unsure how to do that.”

be cut from 30 years down to no more than five. There must be a mechanism to create new groundwater agencies if existing districts can’t resolve disputes. And there needs to be far more reliable information on the exact amount of water in each basin. Failure to do any of these things will surely produce a far more severe disaster than the current drought — unless Mother Nature intervenes with several years of much heavier rain and snow than California has seen in decades.

Near the end of the March 4 Escondido City Council hearing regarding a proposed 65-home development on land currently in the county and proposed to be annexed into the city, Mayor Sam Abed took it upon himself to criticize my firm and some of the good neighbors who had come out to express their concerns about the project. He called out aspects of a comment letter I had written a couple days earlier, decrying what he labeled as “complete ignorance.” Mayor Abed alleged my letter incorrectly claimed the city’s General Plan calls for a 50-foot buffer to protect wetlands. Yet city staff put that very language up for all to see — Escondido General Plan Water Resources and Quality Policy 6.8 requires: “A minimum of a 50-foot buffer and setback for development.” City staff had claimed that the language also mentions an exception might be possible where wildlife agencies approve of a smaller buffer, but two things are problematic with that assertion: (1) the wildlife agencies have actually called for a 100-foot buffer and (2) even if the wildlife agencies had said a smaller buffer might work, my comment was still valid, since the General Plan clearly expects a minimum of 50 feet and the project has buffers as small as zero feet. He also asserted my letter incorrectly claims that the development would create an island of city land. City staff made the rather ridiculous claim that the land was not an island because one tiny corner of the project site will touch a tiny corner of existing city land. But again that does not make my comment incorrect. Merriam-Webster defines “island” to mean “an isolated group or area.” In this instance, the project, a gated community surrounded by county land, will create both an isolated group of residents and an isolated geographic area. But I wouldn’t even bother to write this if his only attack was on my work. Unfortunately, Mayor Abed next unleashed his vitriol on some of the good area residents who had taken so much of their time and energy to express their concerns.

He reminded everyone of the applicant’s “property rights.” Of course, under both the state and federal constitutions, everyone has a right to express their opinions. He may disagree with those opinions, but they were completely within their rights to express them. Perhaps Mayor Abed was angry, since some speakers (but not the people he attacked) expressed concerns about a possible conflict of interest. One speaker said a consultant to the project was on his staff, and another speaker noted that he is listed in minutes from a city council meeting several years ago as “Co-President” of the very applicant who was seeking project approval. But that anger could not justify his venom against the good citizens who were there in the hopes their voices would be heard. And here’s the worst part about Mayor Abed’s diatribe: earlier during the same hearing, he commended everyone (both supporters and opponents of the project) for being “civil.” He congratulated the speakers for not engaging in personal attacks. Yet like a cowardly bully, he didn’t ask me or the other residents about our statements when we were up at the podium. He didn’t give us a chance to respond or clarify anything he thought he might have heard. He waited until the hearing was closed, and then he engaged in personal attacks. In fact, when one of the residents stood up to respond, he pounded his fist on the dais and reminded him that the hearing was closed and his turn to speak was over. At one point he said my comment letter was “embarrassing,” but I think Mayor Abed was the real embarrassment that evening. It’s one thing to know you have the power to wield the mayor’s gavel and vote against the wishes of area residents. But it’s quite another thing to abuse that power and to abuse those good people who come before the City Council to express their concerns. Mayor Abed should be ashamed of himself.

North County Inland Crisis Center approved By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — A North County Inland Crisis Center has been approved to open in Escondido. According to San Diego County Behavioral Health Director Alfredo Aguirre, a crisis center is greatly needed in North County. “(North County) is just not as well-stocked with services,” he said. The crisis center is a transitional level of care, where people with mental health and substance abuse issues can go who aren’t quite in need of hospital services but also aren’t able to remain at home. “Basically it’s seen as an alternative or a follow-up service that can be provided to people that, without it, would wind up in the hospital for psychiatric reasons,”

Aguirre said. The addition of the North County Inland Crisis Center will relieve the burden of local hospitals to care for patients who are stable enough for a residential care facility but not ready to care for themselves. The facilities help patients re-assimilate into society. “What they do is stabilize the individual, get them squared away and get them a strategy to go back into the community to make sure they connect with housing and have appropriate housing and treatment,” Aguirre said. He said the center’s community based programs can also help the intermittently homeless people who can’t always find housing when they’re discharged

Felicita Road 65-home development approved By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — On March 4, the City Council approved the annexation and planned development of the gated 65-home Oak Creek development on Felicita Road. New Urban West, Inc., has been planning the site for two years and has a history of developing in the city. The developers already built more than 300 homes in the Brookside and Rancho Vistamonte communities in Escondido. The council and residents discussed many issues relating to the project, which principal City Planner Bill Martin called the most voluminous Environmental Impact Review in the history of the city. The city approved the annexation of the 41.4-acre property along Miller Avenue, Hamilton Lane and Felicita Road. It was part of San Diego County but will now be considered Escondido. A roundabout along Felicita Road will be installed to slow traffic, which many of the residents were in favor of. A sidewalk is also going to be installed along Felicita Road and the power lines will be put underground on the project side. Bike lanes will be painted along the street. Neighbors complained that it’s currently unsafe for pedestrians and cyclists. “Today, I cannot ride my bike safely with my brother and my sister in my own neighborhood. The cars move way too fast and there are no sidewalks,” 12-yearold resident Kirsten Hansen told the council. The majority of the dozens of speakers were in favor of the development. Marge Russell looks forward to the new neighborhood because she said the area has been overrun by “transients, abandoned vehicles, shanties and drug deals.” “It’s going to improve our neighborhood, improve safety and make a traffic calm street,” Russell told the council. New Urban West developers also plan to preserve and enhance the Vallecito duck pond along Felicita

Road near Park Drive. Jason Han, partner and president of New Urban West said they will put in benches and the pond will remain open to the public. City councilmembers praised New Urban West for reaching out to surrounding communities and incorporating their concerns into the plans. Some nearby residents were against the project because they felt there is already too much traffic in the area and some said they don’t feel a gated community is conducive to a neighborly feel. Attorney Everett DeLano spoke out against the development on behalf of Escondido Neighbors United, a group of residents dedicated to community engagement and protection of Escondido’s natural resources. He argued the homes don’t include enough buffer space from the creek. The buffer spaces create a barrier between sensitive habitat and human and non-native plant species interactions. Martin argued the wording in the city’s General Plan allows no buffer to go through because a separate wildlife agency approved the zero-foot buffer. On the Draft Environmental Impact Report, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife said a 100foot buffer is recommended but the city’s response was that wasn’t necessary because the developer will make significant mitigation efforts. The plan will keep 30 percent open space, which is more than necessary.The homes will be between three and six bedrooms and some will be two-stories. Councilmember Olga Diaz was the only member to vote against the project because she said she couldn’t fully support it. Mayor Sam Abed said he was involved with New Urban West as a community group and believes they are great developers. “They listen to the community and they go through the process. They’ve been going through this for two years and I appreciate their approach to the community,” Abed said.

from hospitals. The crisis centers help patients get continuous healthcare, which Aguirre said is a problem with people who have long-standing mental illnesses. “They tend to have a (mortality) rate of 20 to 25 years less than the average person,” Aguirre said. “It’s not the mental illness that kills them, it’s the lack of access to healthcare.” He said the programs link patients to a primary care provider to avoid reliance on emergency-related healthcare. Aguirre said the center will be more residential in nature and stays generally range from nine to 14 days. “It’s meant to be shortterm as a transition to another level of care and another level of shelter or

housing,” Aguirre said. He said that aesthetically, the centers don’t look institutional and are intended to feel homey and comfortable. Once completed in April of next year, the North Inland Crisis Facility will be the seventh of its type in the county. The center will have 14 beds and 24-hour service. The facility is under construction at 606 East Valley Parkway on a piece of property the county owns. The County Board of Supervisors approved spending $4 million on the project at a meeting on Feb. 3. The project is funded through a state grant which was passed two years ago, SB-82 Investment in Mental

Health Wellness Act. It provides funds for the actual building of facilities. The site is home to a county operated family resource center. The family resource center will move in the summer. A portion of the existing building will be renovated and additional buildings will be added. Aguirre said he doesn’t expect a negative reaction from the community because the program has been tested at the six other facilities throughout the city. “Very rarely do we get an issue raised in the community,” he said. “If someone was a threat to themselves or others, they would be in a hospital setting or a long-term care facility.”

Prop E funds to go towards school upgrades, technology infrastructure, security By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO— Last year nearly 57 percent of voters approved Proposition E, which allowed Escondido Union School District to take out $182.1 million in bonds to update aging facilities and technology infrastructure and increase security. On March 3, the district held a special bond workshop to discuss the first wave of spending which will be available in 90 days, according to Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Michael Taylor. The total bond will be released in three-year increments until 2033, with a first installment of $58.4 million. The largest chunk of the first installment is going towards updating aged schools, including Central Elementary School, Mission Middle School and Orange Glen High School. According to Director of Maintenance and Operations Francis Spoonemore, these schools were chosen because they have the most maintenance calls. Central is 77 years old and all of the schools need plumbing, electrical and structural upgrades, among other improvements. To highlight the issues, Spoonemore talked about Orange Glen’s plumbing. He said some of the taps have brown water coming out and the aging cast iron pipes need to be replaced. “We’ve had two major backups at that school just in the last 60 days,” Spoonemore said. About $31 million will be dedicated to upgrades and will begin in summer 2016. Spoonemore said they want to do construction when students are out of school but this summer is too soon to finish design plans. In April, staff is going to start replacing infor-

mation technology infrastructure in all schools in order to increase performance and reliability of the Internet. Superintendent Dr. Luis Ibarra said the new technology infrastructure will bring the schools into the 21st century. He called network access “the new pencil.” “In the classroom how can we imagine that the computer is an option? Our students need to have access to that,” Ibarra said. Michael Malone, director of information technology, said the new infrastructure will include diagnostic capabilities so staff can monitor the system and find out about problems before they arise. He said staff will install fiber optic cables to connect all of the schools to a major hub. Fiber optic cables allow access from greater distances compared to the school’s current use of copper. About $11 million has been allocated for information technology infrastructure. In 2027, another $11 million will go towards technology infrastructure. Malone said 15 years is five generations of technology and a lot can happen. He said they will need to be flexible with how the money is spent. Another project coming up is replacing the 442 relocatable buildings in the district. About $8 million will be spent to replace relocatable classrooms, which were originally intended to be temporary and $1 million will go towards replacing relocatable restrooms. The board has not yet decided whether to replace the buildings with traditional buildings, or with modular style buildings, which are quicker to install but have a shorter

lifespan. This coming summer, the district will use $8.5 million on “quick start” projects that were deemed critical. In an effort to increase security, $2.5 million of the $8.5 million will be spent on fencing and gates at schools throughout the district. Ibarra said the fencing will reflect the architectural style of each school and will not have a “prison” or “institutional” look. Shade structures at the schools will also receive an update.

Tow program aims to make streets safer By Ellen Wright

REGION — On average, two in three people will be involved in a drunken driving crash in their lifetime according to the National Highway Traffic Administration. Amir Iravani is doing his part to take drunken drivers off the road through the Tipsy Tow program offered by his towing company, NK Towing. Anyone in North County who has had too much to drink can call NK Towing at any hour and a tow truck will come tow the driver and their car for free to their home or hotel. Iravani was honored at the Escondido State of the City event Feb. 25 for spending more than $100,000 in tow-truck services to keep drunk drivers off the road. “Since 2006, NK Towing has been contributing to the safety of Escondido communities through its Tipsy Tow program,” Councilman John Masson said. Iravani said the dollar amount he’s already spent isn’t important. He said it’s about making the roads safer for the city, which provided him the American dream. Iravani came to the United States from Iran when he was 16. “It’s the American dream to have a home, this is my dream and I got mine. Who gave it to me? This community, they come get a tow and pay for it and I was able to make my down payment on my mortgage every month,” he said. He sees it as a responsibility to give back. “We take from this community 365 days of the year so we can survive and thrive. It’s only fair that you TURN TO TOW ON 15

Warm water causing record number of stranded sea lion pups By Ellen Wright

REGION — While surfers and swimmers have been enjoying the unusually warm water over the past months, sea lions are suffering. According to Justin Viezbicke, California stranding coordinator for the National Marine Fisheries, the warm water is causing the highest number of sea lion pup strandings over the past decade. This year more than 1,600 California Sea Lion pups have been rescued. In 2009, Viezbicke said 2,400 pups were rescued during the entire year so this year is shaping up to be a record breaker. Already the rescues have been about six times higher than the annual rescue rate. The warmer water changes the upwelling pattern, which shifts the sea lions’ food source. “Most of the prey for the sea lion mothers has actually been further and deeper away from the (Channel) Islands, taking them more energy and time to get the nutrients they need, thereby leaving the pups for longer periods of time,” Viezbicke said. This causes the pups to grow

happen until April but they started this year in January. While the numbers are above average, they’re not alarming, according to Viezbicke. The California Sea Lion population is estimated at 300,000 so about a half a percent of the population has been stranded. Viezbicke also said scientists had an idea this may happen because of the recent El Niño. One of the problems with the strandings is the strain on rescue resources. Sea World has canceled their live sea lion shows to make room for the unusually high number of pups. So far, Sea World has rescued more than 400 sea lion pups. Viezbicke also said the public has become frustrated with slower response times. “We’re getting a lot of people that are upset at us and yelling and screaming and hanging up because they can’t get a response,” Viezbicke said. “Believe us, we completely understand the concern.” He urged people to be patient and said the facilities and rescuers are under a lot of duress trying to rescue the high number of stranded pups.

Many of the facilities don’t have more room to take in pups so instead of further stretching the resources, the facilities are no longer taking more rescues. “The reality is we just can’t keep bringing them in because we spread everything way too thin,” Viezbicke said. When seeing a stranded sea lion, Viezbicke advised to give it as much distance as possible because it is sick and stressed. He said to not take pictures with it, even if it is docile. “It stresses the animals out to have people around,” he said. “If the animal notices you or is barking at you, you’re too close.” He also said not to feed it because one meal will only prolong the animals suffering. Most starving pups need about four to six weeks of rehabilitation. Feeding it now could also lead to problems down the road because the sea lion would associate humans with food. The best thing to do is call the Sea World Rescue line at (800) 541-7325. Viezbicke said that while it may take a while to respond, the beach is the best place for the stranded pup.

San Marcos rails damaged by Cocos Fire reopened By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — Ten months ago, devastating fires along the hillsides in San Marcos not only destroyed 36 homes and charred 2,000 acres — it also badly damaged two of the city’s most popular trails. On March 7, San Marcos officials celebrated the grand re-opening of those trails, the Double Peak and Ridgeline trials. The re-opening of the trails was the keynote of

the city’s 24th annual San Marcos Trails Day. The city closed the segments of the trail — including Stone Canyon from Double Peak to Twin Oaks Valley Road — following the Cocos Fire in last May, which cost the city upwards of $1 million. Coincidentally, the trial of the girl accused of starting the fire began this week. Saturday’s event started at 9 a.m. at the end of Santa Barbara Drive, where the ribbon cutting was held, and the public was invited to use the three- and seven-mile trails, which are built for hikers of all skill levels.

1 million gallons flood Broadway By Ellen Wright

ESCONDIDO — A 40-year-old water main ruptured on March 3 spewing about 800,000 to 1 million gallons of water onto South Broadway, according to Deputy Director of water utilities Lori Rountree. The rupture caused a sinkhole and road closures along South Broadway between Third and Fourth avenues until Wednesday. Rountree said the water main repair was fairly quick but the resurfacing of the street took longer. The cause of the break hasn’t been determined although Rountree said it was a particularly cold night, which may

which was a disappointment to the students who were hoping for a day off, said Rountree. She said the utilities department doesn’t do any forensic work on the pipes because of the cost. A lot of the pipes throughout the city are old, some date back 60 years. Replacing them depends on Capital Improvement Funds, which are determined by the City Council every fiscal year. The most recent main replacement project was the Alexandra pipeline. A sinkhole caused the closure of South Broadway for about two days Rountree said the last week.

City foundation accepting applications for arts grants By Aaron Burgin

SAN MARCOS — Applications for grants through the San Marcos Community Foundation for arts and cultural programming are being accepted, the city announced in a news release. The foundation is awarding $5,500 in grants under the city’s Arts and Cultural Grant Program

for programs and projects that meet the granting criteria of enhancing arts or cultural programming in the city. Groups have until April 15 to apply at under “grants.” The grant money comes from interest generated on the city’s public art in-lieu fees it collects

from new development projects. The San Marcos Community Foundation also oversees granting of monies from two sources: earnings from a $1.1 million endowment and a special wildlife fund. The San Marcos City Council also tasked the foundation with administering the city’s annual

Arts and Cultural Grants program and the City Council appoints board members. Grants are made throughout the year to benefit a wide range of services for all age groups, for low-income persons, for health and wellness, children and youth sports, and education and culture.

What winter?


don’t remember what Punxsutawney Phil had to say on Groundhog Day, but there is no doubt that spring has arrived in North County. I know this simply by watching the youngsters around the schoolyard. It doesn’t really matter if it’s sunny or gray. There are certain undeniable signs at every age level. If you notice the kindergarteners, you find that they have begun looking like first-graders and hardly ever wander through the library anymore with that “Where the heck is my classroom and what was my teacher’s name again?” look in their eyes. Those with the most obvious symptoms are the sixth-graders, of course. With the arrival of spring, you find small knots of girls either giggling wildly or crying desperately. This can change in the time it takes you to blink. Should you get close enough to hear what is causing all this drama, it will be sixthgrade boys. The sixth-grade boys are suddenly sporting very hip hairdos and the occasional men’s cologne and can often be seen circling the aforementioned knot of girls. At almost every grade level there is a rise in frequency of one chasing the other, usually at a speed they are not supposed to go, in places they are not supposed to be, with accompanying shrieks that will shatter your phone screen. The first graders are generally feeling pretty darned smug at this point, as most have learned to read. The library is their oyster, baby. I have to keep sending them back to

the primary section after they lug the biggest book they can find up to the check-out desk. It doesn’t matter that it is the “Trilogy of the Rings” or “The Complete Encyclopedia of Human Knowledge.” They figure if they can read, then they want to read big. A sure sign of spring for the second- and third-graders is that they require twice as much P.E. time to burn off their energy. They seem to skip faster, jump higher, and think they can stop on a dime and give you nine cents change. They have to be told not to test this theory in the library, at least once a day. The seasonal sign for fourth-graders is measured in fingerprints on the library doorframe. Spring is the time the fourth-graders have grown just enough that they can finally leap up and touch the top. It is a rite of passage and making a good smudge is a badge of honor. The true growth spurts, however, are reserved for the fifth graders, who every spring begin looking eye to eye with me. I knew them all by sight and name last year. Then they shoot up, lose the baby fat around their faces, shoulders get wider, waists get smaller and suddenly, I don’t recognize two-thirds of them. And they love that. My challenge now is to get the books returned from Mission and general book reports, before Almost Summeritis completely clouds their brains (and possibly mine).

Pacific Ridge claims first CIF hoops crown By Aaron Burgin

SAN DIEGO — Scott Nalbandian, Elliot Abbey, Sebastian Green and Ethan Kuo were part of the second wave of freshmen basketball players at Pacific Ridge High School in Carlsbad, which opened in 2007 and completed the first phase of its renovated campus in 2010 — which was also its first season competing in varsity basketball. The quartet started playing in 2011 on a team that won eight games. The next year, the team

won eight games. A year ago, the team won 11 games. But each year, the Firebirds could not get out of the first round of the playoffs, losing in competitive games each season. Boy, did they break

We said at the beginning of the year that this would be our goal, and we accomplished it.” Scott Nalbandian Senior, Pacific Ridge High School

through during their final hurrah. Kuo, a 5-9 point guard, nailed a three pointer from the left wing with 14.9 seconds to go to give the second-seeded Firebirds a one-point lead over the ninth-seeded El Capitan Vaqueros, and Nalbandian sank a pair of free throws to seal a 58-55 victory in the

CIF Division 4 Championship on Saturday morning at Jenny Craig Pavilion. The victory was the 22nd on the season for Pacific Ridge (22-6), doubling its previous high total and giving the school its first CIF basketball title. But it was not easy. El Capitan, led by senior guard Ryan Smith and forward Andy Casas, scored 10 unanswered points to start the fourth quarter — including back-to-back threes by junior guard Bryant Irvin — to take a 52-40 lead with 3:52 left in the game. Then, the Firebirds started to climb back, fueled by Green and Nalbandian, who scored the Firebirds next 13 points to cut the lead to 55-53 with 28.4 seconds. After a time out, Nalbandian found Kuo open on the wing for the three. “I was open, so I just looked up, shot it and it went in,” said Kuo, who scored 12 points in the championship game. The Vaqueros had a fi-

nal chance, and got the look that it wanted when senior forward Robby Callaway snuck behind the defense, but missed a layup with 5 seconds left. Nalbandian secured the rebound after a brief scrum, and was fouled in the process. A win would have capped a dream postseason run for El Capitan, located in Lakeside, as the ninth-seeded team had defeated three higher seeds — including No. 1 Bonita Vista — to advance to the championship. Instead, the dream script went to the Firebirds, a school noted for its high-academic achievement, not necessarily for its athletics programs. None of the players on the team said they expect to play basketball in college, though all are in line for academic scholarships and entrance to some of the top universities in the country. “It is just amazing to be here,” Nalbandian said before the game. “We said at the beginning of the year that this would be our goal, and we accomplished it.” Pacific Ridge advances to the state Division 4 Playoffs, where it is seeded 15th and faces small-school powerhouse Maranatha of Pasadena, which boasts senior guard Tyler Dorsey, who is headed to Oregon on a basketball scholarship.

baseba l l / mu lt ipu r pose fields at 200 Saxony Road were introduced and it’s been smiles and giggles since. That was so true last summer, when the ELL All-Star team — with a poinsettia on its longtime logo — went on a historic run. Out of the estimated 400 Southern California Little Leagues, none were better than ELL. The plucky group that garnered much publicity for Encinitas finished two wins shy of reaching the Little League World Series. It took the national champion, Nevada, to eliminate ELL. From that success, ELL has never been more popular. It has 542 registered players and this nonprofit never turns someone away for financial reasons. But sadly ELL is the nail and YMCA has the hammer. Recently the 25-year lease between Encinitas and the YMCA expired. The city exercised the 10-year extension, but it came with a previously non-existent caveat: either party could end the 10-year extension with 30 days notice. If the ELL, and other users of those fields get the word, they have to scram within a month. Sadly in this active community where people love to recreate, park space is in short supply. There’s certainly nothing that could replace the four fields, even with the opening of the Encinitas Sports Park. So ELL, in its bid for stability and clarity, has offered Field 1 to the YMCA. ELL will move its juniors program (13- and 14-year-olds) to Encinitas Sports Park if it can retain Fields 2, 3 and 4 and the YMCA removes its 30-day trigger. The ELL position is one of compromise. While ELL, Encinitas Soccer and others would lose a field, the YMCA would have a large chunk of real estate to do with as it pleases. Will that be enough to sway the YMCA? Will that be enough to salve the wounds of the ELL, which feels betrayed that Ecke’s original wish — Encinitas kids playing Little League on his land — is being hijacked? We’re not sure how this will turn out. But it’s worth watching because this has the potential of being a big deal. And that comes straight from the Big Duck and the Big Coach.

I’ve been Big Duck. I’ve been Big Coach. I’ve been floored by what is happening where I was both. Turns out that big ol’ city to our south — San Diego — has nothing on Encinitas. And isn’t that a shame. While the Chargers and San Diego ride their stadium merry-go-round, we present Magdalena Ecke YMCA and the Encinitas Little League. These two organizations are dear to my heart and I’m not alone. Thousands of my neighbors have sweated in the YMCA gym; sampled the sweets at the ELL snack bar. It was a pleasure being called “Big Duck” as I took two sons through the YMCA’s Indian Guides. It was a moniker that always made kids smile and isn’t that why we’re on this earth? And there’s few greater greetings than when a youngster shouts “Coach” in your direction. I took those same two sons through ELL, from T-ball to the Majors. It was such a hoot doing it that I remain in the dugout. My sons with untied laces and untucked jerseys are gone but I still enjoy my sunsets with a team that this year answers to the A’s. But all is not rosy on this plot of land once filled with poinsettias. The bloom has wilted on the relationship between these two anchors, which make Encinitas a dynamite place to live. The bottom line is the YMCA wants to expand and it’s batting its eyes at the ELL fields. Ready for parking lots and facilities where kids scream, “Hey batter, batter!” Would the YMCA really muscle out young ‘uns learning America’s past time, but oh so much more? I’m not a lawyer so it’s easy to dumb this controversy down, so here goes. ELL once hung its single at Moonlight Beach, where it started in 1957. It’s among the oldest Little Leagues in San Diego County. But ELL needed more space and Paul Ecke, Sr., the patriarch of the family with a name synonymous with poinsettias, Contact Jay Paris at Follow him offered a parcel on 300 Saxony Road.

Live action ‘Cinderella’ is right fit for happily ever after Majestic views of the will coastal kingdom, nestled among verdant mountains,

By Nathalia Aryani

It’s every little girl’s fantasy. Being a princess. And among all the princesses, Cinderella is arguably the fairest of them all. Director Kenneth Branagh (“Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” “Thor”) took reign of adapting this timeless tale, “Cinderella.” Unlike the reinvention of the last several adaptations, which edges on the darker side, such as “Snow White and The Huntsman“ and “Into the Woods,” or leans towards modern feminism in “Frozen“ and “Maleficent,” “Cinderella” is a straightforward retelling of the classic, although it’s not without surprising gems. The story begins with a little girl named Ella (Lily James), who lives in a stately estate in a sunlit forest. Deeply loved and cherished by her parents, she has a golden childhood. Before her mother (Hayley Atwell, “Captain America: The First Avenger”) passes due to illness, she imparts upon her young daughter to “have courage and be kind.” Ella grows up and continues to have a loving relationship with her father (Ben Chaplin), a worldly merchant. The mansion is elegantly and artfully decorated with paintings, statues, tap-

estries, brocades and other craft items from his travels abroad. Things start to change when Ella’s father brings home a new stepmother, Lady Tremaine (Cate Blanchett, “Hanna”) with her two daughters (Holliday Grainger and Sophie McShera). Blanchett looks like she’s having a ball, vamping up the role with style and malice. Ella’s life becomes un-

bearable after her father dies and her sinister stepmother and snobbish stepsisters took full control. She’s relegated to being a servant, sleeping in a dusty attic, serving their every need on hand and foot, and poorly treated in general. She’s nicknamed Cinderella (from Cinder-Ella), since her face is often plastered with ash. While sorrowful, Ella continues to show kindness and takes joy in simple

things, like friendship with her animated mice companions. One day Ella rides into the forest to escape from her misery, she has a runin with a handsome young man (Richard Madden), who unbeknownst to her is Prince Charming. The down-to-earth prince is instantly enraptured by her spirit, beauty and goodness. They part ways without knowing each other’s identity.

The Metropolitan Water District offers $2 per square foot to remove turf and replace with native plant species or artificial lawns. According to Gage, the Rancho Santa Fe Country Club recently received $1.6 million through this program. Gage said the Escondido Country Club could be eligible for $3 to $4 million through this program. The feasibility study will take 90 to 120 days. The legal ruling

between the city and Schlesinger is expected March 11 or 12. Ken Lounsbery, general counsel for ECCHO doesn’t believe the matter will be solved in court because the losing side will likely appeal. “No matter what happens, the final decisions won’t be made in court,” said Lounsbery. Rick Elkin said regardless of the ruling, something needs to be done to come to a compromise. “We need solutions now. We can’t afford to wait,” Rick Elkin said. Director of Community Development Barbara Redlitz said the city is still taking comments and more workshops will be held.

Educational Opportunities

Local charter school is currently enrolling, now with two locations I think, first of all, parents consider what their kid’s needs are. ” Shannon Smith Director of Business Development

Diego Academy’s Director of Business Development, Shannon Smith. “It can be for a variety of reasons: academics, socially, and they come to us where they find a place where they can academically and socially thrive.” Taylion offers three separate learning environments for students: online education programs, a homeschool program, and an independent study program. Programs are often blended to meet the needs of students. Some additional learning opportunities include small group instruction and online learning programs. School officials say the program offers individualized learning, a safe environment with less distraction, higher parent involvement, credit recovery, credit acceleration, greater

access to new educational resources, and unparalleled flexibility in utilizing various instructional delivery methods based on the particular student’s learning style. When asked what parents should look for in a choice for education, Smith said, “I think, first of all, parents consider what their kid’s needs are. What is it that they think can help their kid to be successful, and then go look at what the options are, and that’s what is wonderful about charter schools. At Taylion San Diego Academy, we are able to customize their learning program. We offer independent study, online classes, homeschooling and a blended model. We are able to take each student, assess where they are at, determine what would best help them and design a program for them individually.” The San Marcos campus is located at 100 N. Rancho Santa Fe Rd. #110, San Marcos, CA 92069, while the Vista site is located at 1661B South Melrose Drive, Vista, CA 92081.

SAN MARCOS — Taylion San Diego Academy is now enrolling with two locations to serve North County. Taylion offers programs in home school, independent study and a virtual program, and has open enrollment throughout the year. With locations in San Marcos and Vista, the charter school has a program to meet the needs of students in need of a more personalized education. The charter school opened in 2013, and has since grown to be a partner in the North County community. During its first year of existence, the school was granted accreditation by the Western Association of Schools (WASC), and has now expanded into Vista. The school even has an Associated Student Body (A.S.B.), which plans field trips and fundraisers throughout the year. Taylion’s programs is an option for students K-12, who find that a traditional school setting just isn’t a fit for them, academically or otherwise (bullies, etc.). A large number of their student population are high school students. “Kids that come to us, are for whatever reason, not thriving in a traditional public school setting,” said Taylion San

ost people wouldn’t consider spending their hard-earned vacation picking up trash, but Tiffany Mapel is thrilled to be doing just that. She and other volunteers called Trash Trackers spend a week every year scouring the shores of Lake Powell in the Glen Canyon

National Recreation Area (in Arizona and Utah), hauling out the trash that inconsiderate tourists have left behind. Each year, about 100 people participate in weekly shifts, sweeping the 1,960 miles of Lake Powell's shoreline. They spend the time aboard a houseboat. “I’ve been going to Lake Powell since 1984 — first with my family aboard our old sailboat,” said Mapel, a Durango, Colorado, teacher. “I started volunteering with Trash Trackers in 2002 and have done it every year since then, except for 2006, when my daughter was born. I’ve

ground, not just the shoreline,” Mapel said. “We get into the backs of canyons where the old water level used to be. It's like a treasure hunt to see what you can find.” And what do they find? Besides the usual picnic litter, volunteers have hauled out a swamp cooler, a dive tank, car batteries, bowling balls, sunken boats and parts of an airplane from a crash, explained Kelly Zwierzchowski, General Manager of Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas. And sometimes the group even discovers sunken boats too large to remove.

According to the Travel Industry Association of America, more than 55 million Americans have participated in a volunteer vacation, and about 100 million more are thinking of doing so. Trash Trackers bring their food and pay travel expenses, but there are no other fees. The houseboats are donated by Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas. “We cover a lot of

So the workers document locations and wait for someone with a winch or a barge to retrieve it. In the last 21 years, Zwierzchowski said, “Trash Tracker volunteers have picked up over 1.2 million pounds of trash. In 2014, over 78 people participated and spent over 2,300 hours collecting over 800 bags of trash. On average, 50,000 pounds of trash is picked up each year.” Yes, it's hard work, admitted Mapel, “but …we get back into some pretty spectacular canyons. There are arches, waterfalls, ruins and other surprises — a herd of desert bighorn sheep, a covey of Chukar quail ... ” And, she added, “it feels good to give back to the lake I love by keeping it clean. Every little bit helps.” Even better would be to eliminate the need for cleaning up after thoughtless visitors. “If everyone packed out what they packed in, then we wouldn't need Trash Trackers,” Mapel said. “I CROP hope more and more people .93 what it means understand .93 our public lands to enjoy 4.17 and waterways, but also to be stewards 4.28 of our national parks and wilderness areas.” Falling water levels on Lake Powell have exposed a lot of trash. “The wind and fluctuating water level will always uncover it,” Mapel ex-

plained. Other examples of voluntourism include restoration projects in the Olympic National Forest in Washington State and the Pink Ribbon Riders, snowmobile riders who raise money for those with breast cancer.

the first time she had ever seen a real life cow — an experience she described as “good.” But on seeing her principal kiss the cow, she only said it was “bad.” Miriam White, the school’s art teacher, came up with the idea of her principal kissing some kind of farm animal, that’s because, according to White, most of the students at Bobier have never seen a cow in real life before, even though they’re surrounded by agriculture, she said. The idea began with kissing a baby pig — Garcia signed off on it, saying “OK.” When White discovered that a baby pig wasn’t available from Vista High School’s Future Farmers of America, she then offered a pig — Garcia, again signed off on it. There was no pig available. But what the Future Farmers did have was a steer — a 1,000-pound, 14-month-old Angus shorthorn cross named Houston.



the area. Along with more renters, there is also a shortage of housing. Panelists at the summit attributed the housing affordability problem to specific causes including regulation and lack of supply. Senior Vice President and Development Director of Newland Real Estate Group Rita Brandin said San Diego’s permit issuance is nearly half of what it needs to be to keep up with growth and meet the demand of 330,000 new homes by 2050. “The biggest challenge for delivering on those homes is the fact that we have only 6,600 permits where we need to average about 12,000 per year,” Brandin said. She said that a big problem in the lack of housing is peoples’ opposition to housing developments. She used a term to describe a problematic attitude to-

And so White again approached Garcia, this time asking if she would want to kiss a cow. The answer came back: “OK.” That’s the way it’s been since Garcia’s arrival on campus last year. White said that Garcia has helped to change the culture on campus, adding that the students are more excited about attending and are more motivated. Garcia said she didn’t know what the culture was like before joining the school, adding that a principal can’t do all this herself or himself. “You need the community, you need the school community and you need the parents,” she said. With the ambitious scheduling of events parents and faculty had, Garcia said she wasn’t sure how it would all get done. But every time the events have happened because everyone has stepped up, she said. “A lot of this stuff, all I had to do was say, ‘Let’s do it, sure,’” said Garcia. With the Read Across America challenge met,

Garcia urged her students to continue to keep up their reading habits and hard work every week. Since adding MYON, a digital library that allows students to read books on any digital platform, to the school this year, Bobier is second in the Vista Unified School District, behind Temple Heights Elementary, for most amount of books read. Though Garcia said they’re trying to catch them. “We’re reading hard,” Garcia said. With staff visiting other schools, Bobier is considering pursing a shift to the International Baccalaureate program or other learning models. A vote at the end of the year will determine which path they take. And Garcia said they already have a private donor, who wishes not to be named, providing funding to sponsor the switch. In August the school plans to launch a new engineering Genius Lab, that Garcia has secured a $30,000 in district grants.

wards home development, BANANA, which stood for “build absolutely nothing anywhere near anything.” President and CEO of Market Pointe Realty Advisors Russell Valone II agreed. “There will always be (someone in opposition) that is going to talk 10 times more and 10 times louder than 98 percent of the population,” Valone said. He urged elected officials to not let community planning groups dictate urban planning policies. Valone said people need to rethink the word “density” since it often has a negative connotation and isn’t always a bad thing. “Density can be done in a fantastic way,” Valone said. Another factor slowing down building in the North County region and California, according to Corporate Real Estate Advisor at the McKinney Advisory Group, Peter Quinn, is the California Environmental Quality Act or CEQA.

“CEQA is stopping bad projects but it’s slowing down or destroying good projects all over our county and state,” Quinn said. The state mandate requires state and local agencies to follow strict guidelines when planning land use in order to protect the environment. Matt Weaver from Lee and Associates said a 115unit project his company is working on in Vista was approved seven years ago but has been hung up by environmental and storm water regulations. In the seven years since the project was approved, impact fees increased $27,000 per unit, which resulted in a $3.1 million increase overall in the project. He said those fees go directly to the landowner. The lack of housing in the region also affects traffic in North County, according to the report, because it forces people in low-wage jobs to move farther from their workplace and commute to work.

meal, food pantry services, health assessments, and service referrals. Interfaith Community Services recently took over operations of the labor connection program in Carlsbad. The program runs out of a trailer and was opened at the request of the city. “We’re more limited to available food,” Greg Anglea, Interfaith Community Services executive director, said. “We’re working on funding to expand that.” Like fellow nonprofit groups working to make a dent in the problem Inter-



give back when you have an opportunity,” he said. AAA originally contacted him in 2006 to take part in their Tipsy Tow program, which takes place on New Year’s Eve and the Fourth of July. After doing it, he realized that the program didn’t exist the other 363 days of the year and he wanted to do something about it. “The liquor stores are open 365 days a year, the bars are open 365 days a year, not just those (holidays),” said Iravani. He has two young daughters and he considered them when deciding to continue offering the


away. Back at the castle, the prince is pushed by his father (Derek Jacobi) and adviser (Stellan Skarsgard) to find a princess and marry for the sake of the kingdom. A kingdom needs stability, which means a suitable, political marriage and an heir. The prince seizes the opportunity to hold a royal ball and open the invitations to every maiden in the land, with the hope of finding the mystery girl who has captured his heart. At his deathbed, the king wises up and gives his blessing for his son to marry for love. It’s a tender exchange mirroring Ella’s final scene with her mother. While in despair for not being able to attend the royal ball, fairy godmother, gleefully played by Helena Bonham Carter (“Les Miserables,” “The King’s Speech”) makes her presence known to Cinderella, after initially testing her for kindness. The fairy magic does wonders. It’s magical to see Cinderella transform, twirl and glow in the shimmery ball gown and sparkling glass slippers. And the rest is a delightful treat because of the gradual transmutations where you can still see par-

other North County boys team to win a CIF Divisional Championship. The Cougars defeated top-seeded Morse 63-49 to win the CIF Division 1 crown. Khy Kabellis, who is headed to North Dakota

State, led Escondido with 25 points, 11 rebounds, 7 steals and 4 assists. Due to a quirk in the local CIF system, the Division 1 champion does not advance to the state playoffs, so Escondido’s season is over.

faith Community Services and Vista Community Clinic are limited to providing services that funding supports. Clinics are struggling with operation costs due to reduced federal funds and grants that limit funding to specific services. Sañudo said federal dollars that previously went to case management, education and transportation were cut last summer. Remaining funds the clinic receives go towards covering farm workers’ clinic visits. He added farm workers who contribute to California’s $1.5 billion agri-

culture industry deserve humane living conditions and equitable health services. Healthcare is more than an individual concern. Public health is essential to everyone, especially in managing communicable diseases. “The key role clinics play is to be there to go out in the community and identify risks,” Gary Rotto, Council of Community Clinics director of health policy and strategic communications, said. Rotto added outreach and education are essential to raising the health of the community.

program year round. The program is anonymous and the tow truck drivers don’t record any information to encourage people who may be embarrassed to use the program. There are a few conditions. The tow truck drivers won’t take the impaired driver to another bar or restaurant. Also, the distance has to be within reason and within the North County cities NK Towing serves which are San Marcos, Vista, Oceanside, Escondido, Camp Pendleton, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar and Fallbrook. The Tipsy Tow program is free and anonymous and he said occasionally people take advantage of it.

Some people will call two or three times a week but Iravani said he will never turn someone down. “If one time we say no to them, and he decides to drive and gets himself hurt, or hurts someone else on the road, that’s the time that if I hear it I’m going to have a hard time closing my eyes at night,” Iravani said. The rewarding part for him is receiving thank you calls and e-mails after someone used the program. He said often times people will call and admit they were in no condition to drive and likely would have hurt themselves had it not been for his program. He estimates that his company gives about 2,000 free tows a year.

tial semblance to the original forms. From pumpkin turning carriage, mice into horses, goose into coachman, lizards into footmen, and back to their origins. At the entrance of the ballroom, Cinderella glides through the staircase and sparkles among a sea of colors as the belle of the ball. She captures everyone’s attention, especially the prince’s, who asks her for a dance. They only have eyes for each other and gracefully dance. They step out and talk, and while Cinderella is now aware of the identity of the man she met in the forest, the prince is still in the dark. True to the original, Cinderella dashes before the clock strikes midnight and accidentally slips out of one of her glass slippers. The prince vows to find her and orders a kingdom-wide search for the right maiden who will fit into the slipper. He’s smart enough to know there may be forces against him and takes precaution to ensure that the searches would be thorough and fair. Lady Tremaine eventually finds out that Cinderella was the “mystery princess.” She makes a wicked offer to take advantage of Cinderella’s position, one that she could easily accept

as a way out, but promptly refuses. She then makes a lastditch effort to lock Cinderella in the attic and hide her from sight. Love, of course, finds a way, and Cinderella is reunited with her prince. For an old-fashioned story, it ends with an empowering message to speak your mind, stay true to yourself and have the courage to do the right thing. James is excellent throughout; she not only radiates Cinderella’s humility, pure-heartedness and innocence, but she also carries her with poise and confidence. Lushly gorgeous and opulently vibrant, “Cinderella” is so earnest and charming that you’ll be swept away in the dreamy fairy-tale romance and magic of happily ever after.
