SAN MARCOS — The San Marcos Unified School District recently approved a shift in its school boundaries that will change where hundreds of students will attend school in an effort to relieve overcrowding. After a several monthslong process that included a boundary committee composed of 100 people, the school board in late February chose “Scenario 6” as the new map, which changes the current boundaries for San Marcos and Mission high schools, as well as some middle and elementary schools. The largest shift involved the Double Peak K-8 school, whose eighth-graders under the current boundaries would attend San Marcos High. Under the new boundaries, students would attend Mission Hills. “Overall, the board felt ‘Scenario 6’ at the elementary and middle school level was more consistent and
less disruptive to the existing families,” said Superintendent Melissa Hunt. “And at the high school level, over time, it would migrate that school to Mission Hills High School. One of our goals was to better balance our enrollment with capacity.” Parents from that community and others have been critical of the shift in boundaries, which they said would separate peer groups who had been together since elementary school. The board, however, said that the district needed to ease overcrowding at San Marcos, and Mission Hills has slightly more capacity remaining. Currently, 3,300 students attend San Marcos High, which has room for 3,400, she said. Mission Hills High has enrollment of 2,500 and capacity for 2,700, but has more room for portables and additional classroom space. TURN TO BOUNDARIES ON A3
Chick magnet: Hundreds flock to buy baby birds
About 100 breeds of chicks were for sale March 11 at the 15th annual Chick Day at the Hawthorne Country Store in Escondido.
By Steve Puterski
ESCONDIDO — Starting at 7 a.m., more than 100 people stood in line braving the drizzle to get their number and pick up baby chicks. In its 15th year, the Hawthorne Country Store’s annual Chick Day drew people from all walks of life. Whether customers were looking to live more sustainably or to beef up their numbers on a farm, store owners Heather and Terry Thelen had one of their best events ever.

This year, about 1,500 chicks were sold, while last year 2,000 chicks were purchased in 24 hours. The chicks cost between $4 and $50 each. “You can raise your own food on a small scale,” Heather Thelen said. “We teach classes with two chickens and a tomato plant. It doesn’t have to be a large operation. It’s pets with benefits.” The line to enter the store had about a 45-minute wait, but the masses were more than willing to brave the cold tempera-

The two most popular, Heather Thelen said, are Silkie’s and Orpington’s. For Alec Roach and Mikki Geier, both 25, this was their first time buying chicks (they bought seven).

Economic development program making waves By Steve Puterski
ESCONDIDO — Seven years ago the five cities of the Highway 78 corridor, along with the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corporation, collaborated and developed a new way of driving business. Dubbed, Innovate 78 and officially created several years ago, the goals were to market, attract and retain businesses and employees to North County. Last month, Escondido Economic Development Manager Michelle Geller and SDREDC Economic Development Manager Jennifer Schoeneck ventured to Oakland to present some of their marketing success stories to the East Bay Economic Development Alliance. At the core of Innovate 78 is a collaboration between Carlsbad, Escondido, Oceanside, San Marcos and Vista to attract and retain business. If recruiting to one city doesn’t work, the business is steered to one of the other cities where they may have a stronger environment for a particular industry. “It was about collaborative regional economic development efforts,” Geller said. “We said ‘here’s what we did and here’s how you could potentially model your program after
us.’” The program has been a success in North County, Geller said, and Innovate 78 grew organically. The five mayors were meeting on the issue, while the economic development leaders from each city were also meeting concurrently, Geller said. The difficulty was the logistics between cities, but this was made easier since all the mayors were on board. “There is an antiquated mindset that cities are competing against each other for businesses that generate sales tax,” Geller explained. “We all were kind of over that mindset and we just need to formalize that. What we were looking at was high-quality jobs and high-quality businesses.” Schoeneck said the opportunity is unique because “true” collaboration between cities doesn’t happen often. The EBEDA received a detailed history of the initiative and the operational perspective as the SDREDC holds the contract for Innovate 78. The cities pay each other for the contract, with one — Escondido — currently holding the contract and all five interface with the SDREDC. “We answered (questions about) some of those more technical and operational marketing campaigns,”
Schoeneck said. “They were more interested in the mechanics of it and how to collaborate as public entities.” As for the EBEDA, Executive Director Darien Laurie said much of its curiosity centered on the marketing. One challenge it faces is its scale, as its membership is much greater and more expansive than Innovate 78. The EBEDA membership includes Alameda and Contra Costa counties with more than 30 cities. The draw to Innovate 78, Laurie said, was its regional marketing strategies. She said another challenge comes from San Francisco and Silicon Valley, where much of the area’s corporate headquarters are located. With so many different cities and business industries, Laurie said it is a challenge to tailor marketing strategies, along with recruiting cities to embrace collaboration and working together. “We wanted to learn about the strategies and how they got their materials and program,” Laurie said. “Some of the differences are we don’t have a more contained area of business investment. It’s a little more difficult to raise capital. We know it would be a little more difficult to replicate. I think it was really important for my cities to see what could be done when cities cooperate together.”
CSUSM soccer player forms Girl Scout ‘Super Troop’ SAN MARCOS — It’s the slogan Girls Scouts hold dear to the hearts: “Do a good turn daily.” Cal State San Marcos soccer player Holly Isaacs not only believes it, she lives it. Knowing what Girls Scouts did for her, she wanted to guarantee others had similar opportunities. But instead of lending
a helping hand with an existing troop, Isaacs started her own. “We call it the Super Troop,” said Isaacs, a senior. “All our girls were on wait lists, meaning there was no room in the other troops.” Isaacs’ youth included hop-scotching around to different cities when her fam-
ily moved. Invariably, she would inquire about Girls Scouts but was told there were no vacancies. Instead of the Girls Scouts experience potentially passing by those wanna-be scouts, Isaacs took action. She started her Super Troop two years ago, inspiring girls from Vista, San Marcos, Escondido and

surrounding areas. The girls, ages 5-9, are doing big things. While under Isaacs watchful eye they grow socially and complete tasks to earn badges. “I learned so much when I was younger,” Isaacs said. “Learned how to be an advocate for others, learned how to make a fire, learned time-management skills and learned how to be a girl.” While Girls Scouts are known for their cookie sales, Isaacs’ Super Troop is hardly of the cookie-cutter variety. It has a diverse mix of girls from various social and economic backgrounds “It’s not limited to the girls’ circle of friends,” Isaacs said. “We welcome everybody.” Isaacs welcomed an assistant last year, when then-freshman Jessica Harloe joined forces with Isaacs. Harloe also plays soccer and Isaacs knew she would get a kick out of Girl Scouts. After fitting in, Harloe fights the good fight with her teammate — being there for girls as they mature and grow. Many of those youngsters attended a CSUSM women’s soccer game, each getting to walk out with a player.

Council approves new Kites Over Vista exhibit By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — As part of its ongoing effort to continue building a more robust cultural life in the city, City Council unanimously approved the newest Kites Over Vista artwork display at the Feb. 26 meeting. Councilwoman Amanda Rigby was absent. Imelda M. Huerta, management analyst for the city of Vista, presented the item. She said the Kites Over Vista program has provided a venue to showcase sculptures at public areas in downtown Vista for the past 10 years and has been successful in promoting public art. “Currently, there are 22 kites in for public display citywide,” Huerta said. “In September, staff released a call to artists for the 10th exhibit of the Kites over Vista program. Twelve kite models were submitted by 10 artists.” Huerta said the Public Arts Commission selected a total of six artworks on Feb. 6. The chosen pieces were “Sunburst Ribbons” by David and Lisa Slovis Mandel from San Diego, “Offshore-Onshore” by Alex Gall of Vista, “Bobble and Nod” by Ryan Bulis of Oceanside, “Hope Springs Eternal” by Grant Bathke of Vista, “Context of Awareness” by Niko Meyer of San Diego and “Tortuga de Mar” by John Myer of Temecula. Huerta said the cost for the art project totaled $19,530 and the funds were available. Councilman Joe Green
was first to comment, saying he loved art and appreciated how the city of Vista supports it. “The Kites Over Vista program is pretty amazing,” Green said. “I love all the art that was submitted and approved.” Green encouraged residents to continue to send in more “artsy” ideas. “We want to see your creativity displayed throughout our city,” he said. “These Kites Over Vista are all around downtown and throughout the town. I love to see my art community at work, and love that this is something that we allocate our resources as a community for because I do think art is important, and it brings a certain uniqueness to Vista that I think is extremely important.” Councilman John Franklin said he liked the diversity of the art. He also said he hoped that there would be more public input on the art in the future. Mayor Judy Ritter thanked the artists for submitting their different concepts. She said it was exciting to welcome a new year along with another group of artists. Ritter also said she would like to see the art spread more throughout the city in areas such as Shadowridge. After the meeting, communications officer Andrea McCullough explained how the Kites Over Vista is used to decorate and beautify the downtown area while attracting visitors to the city.

San Elijo Hills residents rally against gun violence By Rebecca Sykes
SAN MARCOS — The San Elijo Hills community held an “Enough” support rally March 14 in response to the recent shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Approximately 60 people attended including students from San Elijo Middle School and San Elijo Elementary School, along with residents who support the movement to end gun violence. Before the rally began, there were reports of an active shooter threat at the Westridge neighborhood up the street near the elementary and middle schools. It was later determined the to be a hoax. Attendees were concerned and shocked to hear an active shooter was possibly up the street from a rally in support to end gun violence. “It is ironic there was a threat right up the street from this rally,” said San Elijo resident Amoreena Berg. “Also, pretty

And my son is telling me, ‘I don’t want any bad guys to come hurt me in school.’” Six guests spoke at the rally, including 50th Congressional District candidate Ammar Campa-Najjar. His platform includes common sense gun reform, including the same weapon safety rules used by the military. “If you’re are an instructor or a teacher (on military bases) you are not carrying a gun,” Campa-Najjar said. “That is why the military police exist.

I can’t imagine going to school with the people that I know and watch them die or get hurt because this is a real issue.”
Vista council member talks EDCO and ‘good green stuff’ Two kids spark small fire at church with found lighter By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — Councilman Joe Green talked about his interaction with EDCO as a representative for the Regional Solid Waste Authority during the remarks portion of the Feb. 27 council meeting. “Since my last name is Green, I’m always impressed when there’s good green stuff going on,” he said. Green told Vistans that when they see EDCO trash trucks rolling around town, they should take a closer look. The vehicles have a new acronym indicating the type of fuel they use, having switched from compressed natural gas (CNG) to a new type of environmentally friendly renewable natural gas (RNG). “They (EDCO) used to use compressed natural
gas, which was really good for our environment,” he said. “Now, they’re actually using renewable natural gas.” Natural gas reduces emissions. Green said he learned that the renewable natural gas is retrieved by the recycling of organic food waste. He said EDCO is creating gas to fuel its trash collection trucks. “So, EDCO is actually trying to be a net zero waste establishment where basically everything that we put out as a community, we reuse,” Green said. He also pointed out that Vistans live in a state where being green and achieving zero waste is a goal. “Zero waste is a big thing especially with the mandates coming down from Sacramento with the
Girlfriend killer gets 50 years to life VISTA — A San Marcos man who shot his girlfriend and left her body in her car, parked along northbound Interstate 15 near Escondido, was sentenced March 19 to 50 years to life in state prison. Edward Andrew Long, 40, was convicted last month of first-degree murder for the June 12, 2016, death of 38-year-old Elizabeth Perez. Authorities said Long shot Perez in his garage just before midnight, then drove the victim's car — with her
in it — to a spot near the onramp to El Norte Parkway. Perez was found dead in her black 2003 Mercury Sable the next afternoon. She had been shot once in the head. Long was arrested nine days later in Las Vegas at another girlfriend’s home. The defendant claimed the shooting was accidental. He testified that he tapped his gun against the glass in his car window and it discharged.

Current students entering fourth grade and those who completed sixth or seventh grade in the 2018-19 year can continue at their current schools. Those in transitional kindergarten through third grade must switch to the new school in their attendance boundaries. The new district maps can be viewed on the district's website at www. smusd.org.

requirements of having to recycle 75 percent of our organic waste coming down within the next few years,” Green said. “So, we are ahead of the curve in North County, and you can best believe that your waste is under control. So that is good news coming out of EDCO, so check those trucks, honk at them, wave at them.” Last July, EDCO opened a 70,000-squarefoot recycling facility in the city of Escondido named the Escondido Resource Recovery Center located at 1021 W. Mission Avenue. Up to 100,000 pounds of recycling is processed per hour with this newest generation of technology. The addition of the RNG powered truck fleet is a component of EDCO’s zero waste master plan.

ESCONDIDO — Two children sparked a small fire in an Escondido church after finding a lighter in a classroom there, fire officials said. Escondido firefighters and police were dispatched just before 1 p.m. March 18 in response to a report of a possible structure fire somewhere near South Escondido Boulevard and West Seventh Avenue, Battalion Chief Mike Bertrand said. Officers arrived on scene first and discovered the blaze was inside the Iglesia Bautista Fundamental meeting house at 221 West Seventh Ave. “Officers ensured that the building had been evacuated, as church services had just concluded, and confirmed that the fire was
located in a second floor classroom,” Bertrand said. “Escondido fire units arrived on scene and were able to contain the fire to the room of origin.” Crews knocked down the flames in eights minutes, Bertrand said. Five engines and one water truck responded, and no firefighters or churchgoers were injured. A fire investigator responded to the scene and determined that two children started the blaze with a lighter they found in the classroom, Bertrand said. Fire officials said the incident is a reminder to ensure matches and lighters are stored safely and that all buildings have a fire evacuation plan. — City News Service

Congress must temper Trump’s California vendetta
Banning commercial marijuana the wise choice for our cities By Craig Balben
The age of Big Marijuana is rapidly approaching. Elected officials are under pressure by marijuana activists to relax bans on marijuana businesses or face rowdy council chambers and threats of citizens initiatives. Campaigns are being funded by Big Marijuana and politicians are being cajoled, coerced and lobbied to overturn bans on commercial marijuana businesses. Some elected officials claim they are “serving the will of the voters” by advocating for marijuana because Proposition 64 (the Adult Use of Marijuana Act) was approved by 57 percent of Californians. But Prop. 64 explicitly allows local jurisdictions to make their own rules, including prohibiting commercial marijuana activity. Even in Colorado and Washington, where voters approved marijuana legalization in 2012, as many as half of the jurisdictions prohibit commercial marijuana. And just this past January, the residents of Compton, which also supported Prop. 64, rejected two local initiatives to allow pot sales with 75 percent of voters voting no. Fortunately, some local leaders are standing up to the pressures of the marijuana industry. In North County, the cities of Carlsbad, Escondido, Poway and San Marcos have stated unequivocally that they have no interest in commercial marijuana: “There is no amount of money that would make me vote to support the commercial sale of marijuana in Poway. Period,” declared Poway Mayor Steve Vaus. Councilman Barry Leonard concurred, “Poway is the safest city in the county. There’s a reason for that. We support our law enforce-
ment folks and we do what’s right to protect our children.” Cities that have made firm statements opposing commercial marijuana also seem to be facing less pressure from Big Marijuana. Cities like Oceanside, however, which formed a Medical Marijuana Ad Hoc Committee, have been inundated by pro-pot interests from every corner (farmers, distributors, dispensary owners, manufacturers, etc.), all seeing green. They are hoping Oceanside’s City Council votes on March 28 to approve all aspects of “medical” marijuana businesses — cultivation, nurseries, manufacturing, distribution, testing and dispensaries. These would be in addition to delivery services, which Oceanside approved in March 2016. Oceanside staff were directed to get input from various departments and commissions. On Feb. 20, the Police and Fire Commission voted unanimously to reject the Ad Hoc committee recommendations and support Police Chief Frank McCoy’s memo that identified concerns and concluded, “recommend that our City wait on moving forward with opening any type of dispensary.” The Economic Development Commission did not take a formal vote at its meeting on March 1, but discussed the need for tax revenue (which is currently not included) and potential impacts on tourism, such as declines in family tourism. They also recognized there is no guarantee that local farmers would stay local. Farmers could easily sell out to Big Marijuana as soon as the zoning regulations are changed. Oceanside’s Planning Commission met on March 12. The first agenda item ad-
dressed a proposed sales tax increase to fund public safety, infrastructure and local services. The flyer states, in part, “The cost of public safety is increasing every year, and Oceanside does not receive State funding for public safety. The City needs additional resources to maintain safety and our level of police officers, firefighter/paramedics and lifeguards.” Immediately following was a recommendation by staff to approve zoning regulations to allow for all types of “medical marijuana” businesses. The disconnect between the need for more public safety and approving a new industry that would negatively impact public safety appeared to be lost on commissioners, who voted 7-0 to approve the regulations and recommended relaxing them further. As a resident of Oceanside, parent and volunteer president of NCPC, one of my biggest concerns with allowing Big Marijuana to get a foothold in Oceanside is the advertising and promotion of marijuana that will inevitably lead to normalization of marijuana use. Marijuana advertising is inescapable in the city of San Diego — sign twirlers, petty cabs, billboards, news organizations, even radio stations all readily point the way to pot shops. Oceanside has been working for over 40 years to clean up its image. I hope our City Council recognizes at the March 28 meeting that a bright future for Oceanside will be found in North County leaders saying no to marijuana commercialization and normalization. Craig Balben is a resident of Oceanside and president of the North Coastal Prevention Coalition.
his has all the symptoms of a classical political vendetta: At every opportunity, President Trump does whatever he thinks might harm California, which does more to resist his agenda than any other state and which provided the vote margin that saddled him with a popular vote loss in 2016. In just one late-winter week, Trump took three such actions. First, he threatened to pull federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers out of California, predicting a massive crime wave if he did that. Then his budget director for the second straight year cut out of the next proposed federal budget all $10 million that was spent last year on an earthquake early warning system. His attorney general topped it off by filing suit to knock out California’s “sanctuary state” laws. California law enforcement for the most part greeted the “threat” of an ICE pullout with a yawn. “Do your worst,” many police chiefs seemed to say. Several had previously testified in federal hearings that fall and winter ICE raids targeting illegal immigrants everywhere from body shops to supermarket checkout lines hurt their own anti-crime efforts by diminishing cooperation and trust between immigrants and cops. And California officials from the governor down promised to fight Trump’s anti-sanctuary action. But the state’s response to the threatened quake warning cut is completely different, several members of Congress from both major parties insisting they won’t let seismic warning money disappear from the budget. “Congress has re-
california focus thomas d. elias mained steadfast in its bipartisan support for the system,” said Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of Burbank, one of the prime thorns in Trump’s side. “I’ll work to see the project (gets funded) just as we did last year.” Said Republican Rep. Ken Calvert of Corona, who chairs an appropriations subcommittee overseeing the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), “I will continue to advocate for … the earthquake early warning system. This is a system the West Coast needs.” Of course, Trump hadn’t visited the West Coast as president until this month, when he flew to San Diego to look at border wall prototypes and headline a Beverly Hills fundraiser. In his pre-politics days as a television reality show performer, he was here often, but didn’t venture far from studio lots or his Los Angeles-area properties, not worrying much about the ground shaking. He may never have experienced a significant quake. The USGS project he seeks to quash, called ShakeAlert, would provide between 30 and 60 seconds notice before earthquakes, allowing millions of persons to get out of harm’s way. Warnings would come via radio, television, alarm sirens and a smartphone app. The system would also operate in Oregon and Washington, but the great majority of lives that might be saved are in California. No one doubts that early warnings could help greatly when (not if) the next major temblor strikes.
The extra half-minute or more would allow time to duck under desks, move away from sides of buildings that might shed bricks and stones, drive to the sides of highways and get off bridges that might collapse. Each of these things could have saved multiple lives during the1989 Loma Prieta quake and the equally devastating 1994 Northridge shock. When Trump first threatened to cut the federal contribution to this system, whose app is already being tested, state lawmakers led by Democratic Sens. Robert Hertzberg of Van Nuys and Jerry Hill of San Mateo proposed $23 million in state money to keep the project going. If the federal government pulls out of ShakeAlert – comparable systems already exist in other quake-prone countries like Japan and Taiwan – California appears ready to go it alone. For sure, those other countries have proven the technology works. The proposed Trump cut would probably delay setting up 800 new sensing stations which need to be added to 850 that already exist. The added listening posts could increase warning times by detecting earth movements at their very beginning. Here’s the irony: While Trump conducts his vendetta against California, in keeping with his frequent practice of ignoring his previous actions and statements whenever he gets that impulse, he’s nevertheless likely to attend whatever ribbon-cutting grand opening event the USGS might stage, and then try to take credit for a program he twice tried to kill.

Survey reveals traffic still a key issue By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — City Council heard the results of a 2017 community survey at its Feb. 27 meeting. Leading the discussion was Josh Williams, principal researcher and president at BW Research Partnership. The survey was conducted from Nov. 29, 2017, through Jan. 4. Williams the survey was given via landline, mobile phone and online to 73,501 Vista residents over the age of 18. A total of 438 respondents took part in the study, which lasted roughly 15 minutes. Fifty-five of the respondents took the survey by phone with the remainder on the web. Williams noted that there was a margin of error of under 5 percent. “It’s important to note that the survey results do reflect your adult population by age, by gender, by distribution within ZIP codes and by ethnicity as best as we can measure it,” he said. Williams said an original community survey was completed in 2015 and that the recent survey is best described as a follow-up to the initial survey. “Not surprising, one of the key issues that came up when we asked residents what the No. 1 thing that can improve the quality of life was, they talked about traffic, and they talked about roads,” he said, noting this was also the case in the 2015
survey. One in five respondents indicated traffic and road issues but did not provide any additional information, Williams said. The 2017 survey dug deeper. Williams said that they wanted to ask respondents for more information about their dissat-
isfaction with roads and traffic. “Was it about the smaller roads and the residential roads in Vista?” he said. “Was it about the major roads, the arterials such as Melrose or East Vista Way? Or was it about the highways and freeways in or near Vista such as Highway 78?” The results indicated that 54 percent of respondents said they had the No. 1 issue was with smaller roads and residential streets in Vista. “Another third indicated it was the major roads and arterials,” Williams said. “And just under 10 percent, indicated it was the freeways. However, the results were very different when we looked at actual traffic congestion. There were almost two-thirds, 63 percent, that
indicated that their biggest level of dissatisfaction was with the major roads and arterials.” Both Melrose and East Vista Way were mentioned.
who complained about those issues. “We can certainly do it by ZIP codes, so that will be easy to do,” he said. Franklin though

The highways and freeways were mentioned by 16 percent of respondents and the smaller roads by 13 percent, he cited. When it comes to traffic, Williams said, the major arterials were named most often as the area of dissatisfaction. Another issue revealed in the survey was the topic of managing growth in the city. Williams said that in 2105, this was the ranked seventh as an issue. In 2017, it spiked to a No. 2 position. Williams said that the top three issues that residents indicated as the No. 1 way to improve quality of life related to traffic and roads, growth and crime. Councilman John Franklin asked if it was possible to prepare a geographic distribution map for residents

t h i s type of analysis would be interesting. “I’d like to see that,” he said. Deputy Mayor John Aguilera asked whether Williams and his firm had done the 2015 community survey. Williams confirmed that they did. “Were the questions identical and were they pretty close to the same?” Aguilera asked. Williams said most parts of the two surveys used exactly the same wording. “I think we were smart about some things,” he said. “We added the additional questions about the traffic and roads, and so there were some additions.”

If cheering for the kids, stick to ‘hip-hip-hooray’ sports talk jay paris
aybe it hasn’t sprung elsewhere. But in North County, the rite of spring can be seen on ball fields throughout the region. Little League and softball leagues are revved up and reaching full throttle with opening days in the past and nothing but good times in the present and future. Thing is, we don’t sweat the kids having fun with their buddies as they form a bond that could last long past the final snow cone is devoured at the cozy snack stand. Few things are better in athletics then watching a group of individuals become a squad, leaning on each other for help and extending a hand to those seeking the same. While the focus of this column is youth sports it has nothing to do with the final score or how little Johnny did batting leadoff for the first time. The spotlight instead is on those with their backsides in the stands while their hearts are on the diamonds. Many players’ parents wouldn’t dare miss a game just like we won’t skip a chance to preach. But there’s no need for a soapbox. Maybe just soap will do. CROP folks are cool Most when.93 sweating and squirming with .93 every pitch that their4.17offspring offers. The 4.28 majority of parents are keen when eyeing the games, quick to offer praise or a dose of encouragement if something — and it always does — goes haywire. Those adults are just that and wouldn’t it be grand if their colleagues acted in a similar classy manner?
But we realize that’s a longer shot than a kid not striking out over a season. We know parents — and it’s not always the dad — can wreck any game for the person they care about the most. It’s uncanny that a child only hears his parent, even if there's a chorus of chatter coming from the aluminum bleachers that are too hot during the day and too chilly at night. Most youth sports fields have a sign hugging the back stop fence that reminds the grown-ups to act like a grown-up. The jest is if they raise their voice, the tone should bring with it nothing but positive vibes. Cheer for some other kid with the same vigor as your own and it’s amazing how quickly the other parents notice. Something struck me as well after some three decades of youth coaching: the negative narrative seldom works and it only makes the adult look smaller than the child. There’s a saying that the players play and the coaches coach. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the parents followed suit and stayed in their lane as well? So go easy on the tykes and don’t second-guess a coach who is donating his time to spend it with your kid. Or if the coach really is overmatched, then help run a two-hour practice where he’s asked to babysit and teach youngsters how to hit, pitch, catch and run. Umpires? They should be treated with the utmost respect and yes the kids are watching. If you pepper the person in blue with constant criticism it reflects badly on you and embarrasses your kid. These arbitrators work for peanuts and are usually doing their part in this grand community endeavor of providing healthy athletics. Do you really think these umps plot before the game to make sure an 11-year-old player is wrongly called out? Or that a border-line pitch which possibly caught the plate’s corner was called otherwise? Don’t be the person that makes others cringe. Stand tall for your kids and show restraint if a call goes the wrong way. The right way to enjoy a summer of youth sports is to be like the kids — have fun, wear a smile and then meet up for that post-game snow cone. That’s not up to the youngsters tugging on their oversized jerseys. If wanting to help, be supportive as that fits everyone to a ‘T.’ Contact Jay Paris at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your new mecca is in the making. Airstream, Inc., which manufactures the iconic and much-loved "silver bullet" travel trailer, is constructing a bigger and better plant in Jackson Center, Ohio. The plant, where Airstreams have been built since 1952, is expanding its 255,000-square-foot facility to 750,000 square feet. This will include a new Heritage Center for visitors with exhibits that tell the history of the company’s 87 years and displays of Airstream memorabilia and historic products. Officials say that the new plant (56 miles north of Dayton) will generate 280 new jobs, bringing the total number of Airstream jobs to 1,200. The plant is set to open sometime in 2019.

Spring showers bring more … weeds small talk jean gillette
actually wore boots twice in a week. I believe that’s a first. I do like some rain. It’s good for the snow pack, it’s good for the water supply and aquifers, and the flora and fauna seem to love it. That’s where my delight in rain crashes to a halt. The flora that loves the rain the most are the weeds in my yard. More specifically, the weeds that thrive in the decomposed granite
I chose to line my fetching walkway that runs through both front and back yards. Six inches to either side of the walkway is weed-free, but oh, do the weeds and grasses love that DG. Had I given it even a moment’s thought, I would have remembered that I already knew about the marvels of DG. I lived in East County in my high school years. Our house was built on DG and, despite the heat, things loved to grow there. We were surrounded by wonderfully productive avocado trees, fruit trees and lush grass. Anything my mother planted came up beautifully. The granite around us, some decomposed, some
very definitely not decomposed, became a family joke. My dad tried to jackhammer up a granite boulder in our back yard, to put down a patio. After watching several jackhammer heads curl, leaving only two small holes in the rock, dad determined that we lived atop an enormous granite hill, and that boulder was the tip of it. He bowed to nature and just laid concrete around it. The point, of course, is I should have known the local weeds would do their happy dance if they landed in the DG, rather than the miserable clay we sit on here. And the rain provided the dancing music. I walk out my front
porch every day. Suddenly, yesterday, there was a weed of a startling size right in the pathway. This prompted me to grab my digger tool and take a quick look around for other offenders. About 30 minutes later I had three piles of weeds, soggy knees and backside, and a headache. It is gracious of the rain to make it so easy to yank those bad boys up, roots and all. Next time I need to remember to change out of my good jeans. Jean Gillette is a freelance writer who has decided that clover is not a weed. Contact her at jean@ coastnewsgroup.com.

The community is invited to support its programs by attending the 15th annual Spring into Hope Dinner and Auction on March 24. This year’s theme is The Enchanted Garden and the event will take place at Gloria McClellan Center in Vista. Operation Hope-Vista organizers promise a night of fun and must-have auction items with all money raised going toward offering hope and shelter to homeless families. In 2017, Operation Hope-Vista housed 215 people, more than 50 percent of them children. Executive director Kathleen Higgins said Operation Hope-Vista is unique in that it is a homeless shelter specifically for families. “When the city came to us in 2003, it was specifically with the idea that we would serve families because, in those days, there were a couple of winter shelters for single men,” she said. “There were some beds for single women, but not that many. There was nothing for families.” Operation Hope-Vista helps bridge this gap. Higgins said in traditional shelters where there are bunk beds in a large dorm area, mothers will not get a much sleep because they’ll be concerned about the safety of their children. Another significant issue has to do with teenage boys. “If your boy is older than 12, he would be required to sleep on the male side, and no mother in her right mind is going to let her 13-year-old boy sleep by himself with strange men,” Higgins said. “So, we really needed something for families, and that has always been our focus.” According to Higgins, Operation Hope-Vista does have a small six-bed dorm for single women. A lot of times, other family members are able to take children in. This allows mothers the time they need to rest and help put everything in order. Higgins said they also have single fathers with
thers with their children, and mothers and grandmothers with children. “A family is a family, and so how you present to me as a family is how we will house you,” she said. “Everybody has their own story.” Operation Hope-Vista has 45 beds. Higgins said that when they are “full,” sometimes that doesn’t mean that they have 45 beds full. “What’s unique about our shelter is that each family has their own private room,” she said. “So, if it’s a room for four, but it’s a family of three, then that fourth bed would stay vacant so that the family could have their privacy.” Higgins said the shelter wasn’t built that way. The property was initially a clinic, so each of the rooms was an examination room. Operation Hope-Vista constructed itself on an existing footprint. Higgins said when a family becomes homeless, the first thing that starts to go is the strength of the family unit. The communication begins to crumble. “You’re trying to figure out how to put a roof over your children’s head or put food in their mouth that night,” she said. You’re really not that interested in what they did at school that day — and it isn’t because you’re really not interested — it’s because you have bigger problems.” By providing homeless families with their own room at Operation Hope-Vista, almost immediately, that family unit begins to heal. Within a week, Higgins said, she can see a difference in how the families are reacting to each other. And from there, families are assigned a specific program plan designed to address their unique challenges to help arm them with the tools they need to succeed.

SAN MARCOS — For more than three decades, Palomar College has been helping members of its student body and their families who don’t have enough food. Over the years, that food pantry has outgrown the digs. On March 9, the school broke ground on a project that will expand the food pantry, which dovetails with the school’s mission of doing all it can to help students complete their degrees. Board members and district officials ceremonially moved the dirt of the Anita and Stan Maag Food & Nutrition Center. “Many of our students live paycheck to paycheck, and often must decide between rent, gas, food, clothing, taking care of their little ones and taking care of their partners,” said Sherry Titus, director of student affairs at Palomar. “We need them to stay in school, and we need to provide the resources to help them stay in school.” The district opened a food bank in 1983. Currently, eligible students can access the food bank once per month on an emergency basis by completing an application. Food is distributed according to the number of immediate family members in the household and avail-

ability of items. The college sources its pantry supplies from the North County Food Bank on Rancheros Drive in San Marcos. Fueled by the recession, officials said the program has outpaced the size of the current building. By noon on the current Thursday distribution schedule, there is a line of students out the door waiting to re-
ceive assistance. Funded by a $400,000 donation, the center will replace the college’s faculty and staff lounge in the Student Union area of the San Marcos campus, according to a news release. Currently, the food pantry only carries dry goods and produce that can’t be kept longer than a day because of a lack of a refrigeration unit. When
the new center finally opens its doors, workers will have a refrigerator for keeping produce and dairy, as well as a staging room to accept pallets of food. Palomar College trustees Nina Deerfield, Mark Evilsizer and John Halcón, student trustee Chris Hopp and College superintendent/president Joi Lin Blake participated in the groundbreaking.
Vista school takes part in National School Breakfast Week By Christina Macone-Greene
VISTA — Maryland Elementary School joined school across the country taking part in National School Breakfast Week, which began with a kickoff celebration on March 5. The goal of the national campaign was to educate and raise awareness about how a healthy breakfast is available at school cafeterias. Jamie Phillips, director of nutrition services for the Vista Unified School District, said the celebration was perfectly timed because they had just rolled out a new menu that very week. Menus are changed during the fall, winter and spring at the 17 elementary schools in the district. “Our new breakfast menu just happened to fall on this day,” Phillips said. “It was nice and convenient because we had our new menu options, but we also had samples of what the new items will be for the next menu cycle.” Phillips said National School Breakfast Week is a vital initiative and that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for students and research proves it. “Students who have a breakfast actually have higher levels in math, and their achievement scores,” he said. “They’ll do better in standardized tests. Breakfast also improves and helps with concentration, memory and better alertness in class.” Phillips said studies
have also revealed that when kids eat breakfast, they have a better attendance rate compared to students who do not. He said the school district aims to serve the highest quality food possible. “We’re always coming up with new ideas,” he said. “I have a wonderful kitchen coordinator who tries all different kinds of recipes, and she tests them not only with myself but also other people in the kitchen. From there, we test them out with the students many times before we put them on the menu to make sure that it’s going to be a hit.” The food served also meets the guidelines of the HealthierUS School Challenge as well as a nutrition standard set by the FDA. Phillips said while they try to have fresh fruit daily in the cafeteria, the school district works hard for students to have a farm to table experience for both breakfast and lunch. “That has been one of my goals this year,” he said. “And next year, to keep working on bringing fresher and healthier ingredients to the students.” A few of the local farms the district has partnered with include Solutions Farms in Vista, Good Taste Farm in Fallbrook and Sage Mountain Farms in Anza. Phillips said his team is concentrating on bringing more fresh fruits and vegetables, so they plan on issuing another request for proposal this spring to engage more local farm,
which also helps the local economy. “We’re always trying to prepare the freshest meal as possible to the students and ensure that they do have a great breakfast and lunch experience,” Phillips said. “At the end of every
single menu cycle, we actually survey the students to get their feedback on what their favorite menu items were and also their least favorites. We’re always constantly trying to work with the students to give them the best possible meal.”

Exciting new ‘No Scar’ hair restoration method OCEANSIDE — Hair restoration has come so far in the last decade that the tell-tale signs of procedures no longer have to be par for the course. The invention of Follicular Unit Extraction, or FUE, is one of the most exciting advances in the history of hair restoration, and it has a multitude of benefits including the absence of a linear scar line, fast healing, minimal discomfort and natural looking results. FUE differs from the traditional Follicular Unit Grafting, or FUG method, in which long thin strips of scalp are extracted. “The FUE hair transplant is relatively new, and among its notable benefits are that it is minimally invasive and there is no linear scar,” Dan Wagner, CEO of MyHairTransplantMD said. The FUE procedure is
County clients. “Both FUE and FUG produce amazing natural-looking results,” Wagner said. “Both techniques place hairs the way they would naturally grow. The big difference is the way in which the hairs are BEFORE AFTER extracted.” “FUE is essentially the ‘one hair at a time’ method,” Wagner said. “The hairs are extracted the same way they grow, in naturally occurring clusters.” While the FUE procedure can be done via robot BEFORE AFTER 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 BEFORE AFTER said. “We do the artistic side of the procedure.

them through the buying process to raising the chicks in their first few months. Roach and Geier live outside Escondido city limits and have a property they rent through Airbnb. They want to provide fresh eggs to their guests, while also living a more sustainable lifestyle. “The idea was to have a more sustainable life at home,” Geier said. “We got white Silkie’s. We’re thinking of sticking with the seven for the first year and see how it goes. People say after four months, their chicks lay an egg a day, so that’s seven eggs a day.” Chick Day began as a display contest through some feed companies, and
we started the number system and people line up and get their number in the morning.” As for feed, there has a been change in how and what the animals are fed. Six years ago, Heather Thelen said, there was no organic feed for the birds. But the explosion and popularity of organic food among people has branched into pet stores. Cities in San Diego County and around the state and country have begun developing and instituting ordinances and laws permitting a limited amount of chickens, although roosters are not allowed in many municipalities. “We have a giant line of organic feed now,” Terry Thelen added. “Now, it’s huge.”
the wrong hands it yields bad results. What we do is more effective from a results 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 areas of the scalp that are resistant to balding. They are then transplanted into tiny incisions in the balding areas. 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.” This is in contrast to FUG, which has a longer 14- to 30-day recovery time. 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. If you have been considering hair restoration and want to learn more, visit myhairtransplantmd. com or call (800) 262-2017 for clear procedure pricing, more testimonials, and a complete comparison between FUE and FUG methods of hair transplantation.

Help sought to ID woman suspected of stealing jewelry while accomplices distract store employees ESCONDIDO — Escondido police sought public help March 21 to identify a woman suspected of stealing from two jewelry stores this week while as many as 10 accomplices distracted store employees. The most recent thefts happened Monday, but Escondido police believe the “organized, sophisticated and ... structured” group has pulled off similar heists throughout the region, making off with thousands of dollars in cash and jewelry. On March 19, Escondido officers responded to two burglary reports at jewelry stores in the city, Lt. Ed Varso said. Police did not disclose the names or locations
of the stores, or what was taken, but in both cases, as many as 10 co-conspirators allegedly entered the store and worked to distract employees. “Once the employees are distracted, a female suspect sneaks into the rear of the business, searching for loose gold and jewelry,” the lieutenant said. “These groups are organized, sophisticated and operate in a structured behavior to further their criminal behavior.” Police believe the group travels in a silver minivan, possibly a Honda Odyssey. Anyone with information about the group or the woman suspected of casing the stores’ back rooms was
asked to call Detective Mike Martinez at (760) 839-4739. Tipsters wishing to remain anonymous can call the Escondido Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (760) 743-TIPS (8477). — City News Service
